Mr Sager has left at The Herald
a sample of ihe roc:; blasted
from the bluff south of the Sycamore
statton. It is of a very firm, rolid
nature, and seems to be equally as
good as any in the county. It would
be a great thing for the entire west
ern part of the county If a crusher
were put in at this point and con
nected with the O \V. P.. so that
the rock could be taken to all parts
of the county There is a chanc“ for
buildfng blocks and street material
here, at most convenient transporta
tion facilities in the county.
The public schools of Portland
were stopped last Monday because
the supply of Bui! kun wat*-r was
not available, Of course, the chil-
dren went home and drank soda
pop. mineral water, milk, and in
their extremity, beer, and even took
•i hances on a drink of Willamette
water tn their extreme need. That
was a queer movement. If Willam
ette water was good enough to use
at home, was there anything in the
nature of things that should make it
more dangerous at a school? Any
how. what danger is there in drink
ing water from this river? Do no'
the river men use ft all of the time,
and can you find a healthier class of
people? The Willamette is far better
as a source of water supply, even
lor Portland, than the average city
The immense volume it car
ries Is sufficient to dilute its impuri
ties to the ten-millionth part, and
unless the people of Portland wish
to admit that something in their
surroundings renders them especial
ly susceptible to the dangers pos
sible from such sources, they should
be more careful about the remarks
passed about the limpid liquid sup
plied by the "beautiful Willamette "
The Referendum privilege Is again
about to be used to prevent the edu
cational development of the state.
conservative citizens of
Jackson county have started a peti
lion with that purpose in view. A
large part of the people think that
the appropriation allowed by the leg
islature to the Agricultural College
Is ont of proportion to the needs of
the institution and the development ,
of the state. They think that taxes '
are already too high, and while they!
do not disapprove of a moderate al-1
lowance for the college they think
the amount allowed at this session
was entirely too large. There is un-l
doubtedly good argument in the op- I
post ton to high taxes. Proiierty is ,
now taxed in some parts of the state
till there is a question whether it
pays to hold It. If a man rents his
property, pays taxes to come out of
the rent, keejis up the inncldental
expenses, he does not have even
