AS WE ARE.
To a large extent the papers of
a town are responsible for the
good name of said town. Nearly
every city contains objectionable
features, at least in the estima
tion of some of its citizens, but
the wisdom of condemning our
selves in the eyes of the world
every time something or some
condition arises to our individual
displeasure is very questionable.
There is rivalry between towns
as there is between merehan's,
and when any town, through its
papers, advertises her short
comings one may be assured that
citizens of rival towns will make
capital of the matter. To run
down our own city is poor policy,
rather had we better stand up
for our town, even though con
ditions, socially and otherwise,
be not to our liking.
If we would draw strangers to
our city; if we would induce them
to locate among us, we cannot
ihope to win them by magnifying
our short-comings. So far as our
social and moral conditions are
concerned, Corvallis is the equal
ot any ot her sisters, we are a
law-abiding .people; our city is
officered by respectable men; our
citizenship is such as to demand
Zhzt our officers do their duty; a
violation of the law at once re
ceives attention and correction.
This is as much as any people can
Ihope for in this world, at least
unta human nature as a whole
undergoes a wonderful change,
and it is very slow to change.
People desirous of coming to
Corvallis will find as many in
ducements offered by this city as
an any other place. Our people
are charitable, friendly and so
ciable; we have schools and
churches; Corvallis is a clean and
well-kept city and there are other
(desirable features found here too
numerous to mention. True, we
anay have, beyond doubt do have,
conditions not to the satisfaction
of some of our people, but so
Jhave all other places. It is not
necessary that we close our eyes
to these conditions, rather that
we work quietly to their better
ment. WILL BE NO TROUBLE
From a reliable source comes
information that inclines one to
the belief that there will be no
tariff war between this country
and Germany. The latter coun
try was up in arms a short time
hack, and had all sorts of pro
positions to offer in the way vof
a tariff or reciprocity dicker
and what would happen if the
United States did not come to
It now appears that all of this
Jskister was made by Germany in
the interest of her land owners.
The project at no time, it is de
clared, appealed to the manu
facturing class for they were
wise enough to foresee the
possibility of decreased sales
in the United States should a
tariff war be instituted.
These men the manufacturers
of Germany, have already
memorialized their government
against a policy which they fear
will provoke a higher schedule of
tariff duties in the United States
against Ethe imports from their
country. They reason correctly
when they state their fears of
the outcome should Germany pro--ceed
in an attempt to force this
country into a sort of reciprocity
dicker, for it is inevitable that
Germany must ultimately suffer.
They cannot afford to chance re-'taTliationr
