The question, "What is neces
sary to make a town or commu
nity thrive?" is of vital import
ance and one often in the minds
of the thinking citizens. Many
things acrue to the benefit of a
people. The most essential thing
is a good pay roll. Without this
there is no life, and of course
without life the town is dead, so
to srjeak. But how to sec ore a
pay roll? ' y
It is patent that the poor man
the laborer cannot be expect
ed to create a pay roll. So we
must look to the rich or fairly
well-to-do man for thisj creation.
But there is the sticking point.
Such a man is already independ
ent in a sense" and is generally
discreet enough to try and "make
sure" before he invests in any
business that will provide means
of sustenance for any number of
people. He must exercise good
judgment in determining what is
a proper business in which to en
gage. Must consider the coun
try, its products, and community
Having determined all this, he
next gives attention to the tem
per of his fellow men. Here his
heart mav fail him, for few, if
any, will "patronize home indus-

"Same corporation will raise the
price to a much higher figure
than the small manufacturer de

is fiirnishad everv. dav in some
part of the Union at present in
- Kansas in the fight between that
state and Mr. Rockefeller. :
This sort ot thing is what is
retarding the growth of Oregon,
and of all, small towns, Corvallis
among the rest. , And the people
are .to blame. Never a week pass
es that orders do not go from this
city to some other place for some
thing that could have been secur
ed here. In purchasing at home
you may pay out a tew cents
more for a given thing, but your
money is here. Its presence is
necessaay to the lite of the place
in which you reside. You look
to your home town to supply you
a living. ' The debt is not all on
the side of the town you owe it
something. In a degree the pos
sibility of creating a pay roll is
in your own hands, be you rich
or poor. v:
ed the constitution limited the
salaries to be paid to the officers
of the state so as to confine future
generations within certain
amounts in order not to involve
the small number of people then
in the state with expenses too great
for them to meet. The constitu
tion has carried us along within
safe, conservative lines, and dur
ing all of the time there has been
abundant official material offered
and seeking state positions. Yet
for over thirty years many of the
tax-eaters have viewed with con
tempt the sacred provisions of the
constitution and sought every op
portunity to overstep its conserva
tive financial provisions. If the
governor does not veto the bill,
suit should be brought to sustain
and protect the constitution from

A dispatch from St. Peters
burg, Russia, beui'ng date of
Feb. 10, indicates that Russia
must have peace at any cost.
Notwithstanding the fact that
she is the party suing for peace,
Russia proceeds to outline terms
that would be agreeable to her,
as follows:
"There is a greater probability
of peace now than at any pre
vious time. The ter ms of peace
acceotable to Russia would, be

, Our' governor is a trained and
skillful lawyer. - During his ad
ministration he has vetoed num
erous measures for infringing up
on the legislative construction of
of the constitution of our . state;
His action will be looked to with
much interest , in relation-to his
views concerning this bill which
recently passed both houses of
the legislature providing large in
creased flat salaries to state offi
cers over the limit prescribed by
the constitution. ; There cannot
beany doubt regarding the pror
er construction to be given to the
constitution upon., this subject

says the " Albany Herald, copy

at Salem and Portland are all
talking about the next republi

mentioning several of their as

that we country people are going
