All over the state there appears
to be great activity ' regarding the
question of inducing Easterners lo
locate at a given point. Nearly
every paper in Oregon Las , had
something to suggest for tbe inhab
itants of its particular . field, and
these suggestions are always in the
interest of that particular ''Eden."
This is all right and as it should
be. Oregon is a good state from
top to bottom, but certain sections
are more developed than others.
In order to advertise anything it is
neceseary to use ''printers' ink,"
and particularly is this true when
the maiority of the papers of the
state are setting forth the advan
tages of their section. We invite
readers of the Gazette to lend a
helping hand in this matter, so
vital to us all, and inform us ef all
things coming under their observa
tion that will assist' in building up
and improving the county.

nothing wiser than to mail copies

Am Albany "theatrical troupe"
went to Corvallis and displayed
their amateur talents to their best
ability. The Corvallis Gazette
gave a mild and friendly review of
the performance, not, hewever,
gushing with the fulsome flattery
which the "company" thought they
deserved, and now the editor of the
Gazette is receiving bitter abuse
from the Albany people. His criti
cism is now charged to the fact that

A. J. Johnson, United States
Forestry Expert, whoso home is in

here was to secure a choice" collec

noted forestry men in the United
States, and besides collecting and
working in behalf ef this govern

communication from a gentle

that a- party, having means to
invest, was desirous of establish
ing a one-set woolen mill at
some point in' Oregon. He
wished to know what induce

The performance of "Lost Para-
dise" last night by Frank Cooley
and company was excellent in every
particular and preatly pleased the
large audience present. The "Lost
Pai ad ise" requires clever and 'care
ful handling. Hamilton Armour,
as Percy Rnskin, succeeded in gain
ing the dislike of the audience by a
careful and c!ean-cut impersonation
of a trying role. Sidnev Piatt was
liuht and buoy nut 'as Hal Neville:
hia scenes with Polly (Miss Fran
cis), were enjoyable and served to
relieve the more serious part of the
drama. M. de Lacev, as leader of
the strike, presented an ideal work
man with the courage of his con
victioLS. Oswald Roberts played
the 'nill-ownr with energy and M.
Graves looked well as Crawford.
Miss Kingsbury, as leading lady,
acted her pari very well, is hand
8omi? and well gowned and of excel
lent ability, iiithel Urompton was
a charming character in her hands.
Miss Francis played Pollv and Cin
ders and deserves praise for her
versatility. Miss Graves won sym
pathy as Emily and Miss Bluxome
looked well as , Mrs. Grompton.
Frank Cooley has been here before,
but never to such sood advantage
as, last night. As George Weston
he displayed a passion, force and
tenderness not possessed by all
leading men. Eugene Guard, Mar.

First In Delivery.
The -Gazette is ia possession
of the markings of the judges on
composition and delivery in the
recent inter-callegiate oratorical
contest held in this city, and
perusal ef them is interesting.
The judges on composition were
required to grade their papers on
their Originality, Rhetorical Ex
cellence, . Subject Matter, and
Style of Treatment. Delivery
was also divided into four heads:
Gesticulation, Articulation, In
terpretation, and Oratorical
Effecs. Each set of judges
graded upon the basis of ioo.
Of the three leading contestants,
Tartar stood first In delivery by
twft points, aad Minchin secend,
two points ahead of Wallace,
who was third. Tartar excelled
in oratorical effect, with Wal
lace second and Minchia third.
Tartar was first in gesticulation
and Minchin second; while Min
chin stood first in articulation
and equalled Tartar in interpre
tation. Wallace was third in
each of these points. :
Judge Colvig awarded O A C's
representative first honors ia de
livery, and Mr. Mays and Rev.
Gilbert gave him second plaee.
Gilbert placed Wallace first and
Minchin third; Mays' first choice
was Minchia, while he con
sidered Wallace . entitled to fifth
Of all the markings, those of
Professor Paddleford, of the uni
versity of Idaho, stand out naked
and alone. So great in his esti
mation, was the difference in the
literary merit of the various
papers, that his voice outweighed
the verdict ef the other judges
combined, in deciding the con
test. On the basis of ioo points,
he gave Minchin 90; Wallace,
71; and 1 Tartar, 46. Prof.
Meaney, of the university "of
Washington, gave Minchia 94;
Wallace, 96; and .Tartor, 93.
President Penrose, of Whitman
college, Walla Walla, like Prof.
Meaney, found little difference
in the composition of the three
leaders. He rated Minchin first
with 90 points,' Wallace second
with 89, and thought Tartar en
titled to 80.
There are some literary produc
tins which Professor Padelferd
has never read or he "would cot
have given Minchin over twice
as much, credit for originality
as he gave Tartar. Professor
Meaney thought that O A C was
second to MoMinnville ia origi
nality and placed Minchin two
points lower. President Pea
rose on this point, gradad Mia
eain and Wallace alike and rated
Tartar below theta.
On the papers as a whole,
Minchin stood the highest Of all
the contestants, Wallace took
second pace, and Stillmacher, of
Albany, third. Prat, Meaney
placed Stellnaacher first; Presi
dent Penrose eave him second
place, while Prof. PadelfrS
marked him seventh.

Mayor Crawford announced that
the council was ready to consider
miscellaneous matters. Mr. J.
T. Phillips here called the atten
tion of the council to the fact
that the law relating to the clos
ing of saloons was being violated.
Mr. Phillips spoke warmly on
the subject from the standpoint
of a parent and citizen and was
given close attention. When he
had concluded Officer Wells
created a sensation by reading a
list of names of persons whom he
claimed had passed a portion of
last Sunday in a certain saloon
in this city. He closed his re
marks by asking the council if it
was the desire ot that body that
the Sunday closing law be en

it was, and the council gave
