There will he important measure
up for action next eion of the
legislature, among which will he lh
repeal of what is known as tho in
dehteilue clause; the maintain
a nee of tho mortgage tax law; the
cHlahlishinent of tho Australian sys
tem of election, or something siini
larto it; and opposition to the noli
taxable, bond. These art) of great
importance to tho tax-paying part
of the voter as well a laboring
men all over tho state.
While 1 believe the republican
party i capahh) of doing nil that
is necessary for the pcOplo if it will,
it seems disposed to reject some of
these measures; ami if the county

noro these vital issues, sonio other
more progressive party will tako
them up and will eventually sue

propose to vole for any candidate
for tho legislature who will not pub
licly promise, if elected, to support
It might hn well for tho parly to
remember that this is what is termi'i

Says the Sunday Oregonian: The
prospect i of a forwartl movement
in this old classic town are very
n ight. A Portland gentleman has
lesed ground for an extensive
xi'clsior mill a short distance
from the Standard Mills build
ing. The lease was obtained from
the owner of the Standard mill
nml ground, ami the ttower for the
xcclsiorniill will be furnished from
the Standard Mill building. About
twenty-live men will l' employed
in the new mills at the start, but
thi number will no doubt be in-
reasetl. The furniture factory now
employs n largo force of men. A
hotel, so it i stated, is to lie put
up, in view of these manufacturing
enterprises, nml Milwaukio, which
like Rip Van Winkle, has taken n
long sleep, may iinldouly awaken
to new life.

R, (i. Dun it Co.'s report of busi
ness for tho past week is unusually
encouraging. The volume of busi
ness is much larger than in any pre
vious year at this season, and tho
rail linos nro carrying enormous
oast-bound freights. Rank clearings
are larger than usual, and the actual
shrinkage of consumption is con
lined principally to tho few lines af
fected directly by tho mild winter.
Trade in every section of tho coun
try, especially in tho South, is rep
resented as satisfactory, with bettor
collodions. This is a bright out
look for tho season now opening. -Toledo

For tho week ending Saturday,
The temperature and rainfall
have been below tho normal. There
has been little sunshine; generally
partly cloudy or cloudy weather

The past wet-k has shown no ma

excellent yield of fruit, except

Tho season is very backward.
This may be accounted for by tho
fact of tho unusual heavy snow yet
in tho mountains. When the fhow
fall in the mountain has lieen
heavy the spring is usually late;
cloudy weather prevails and show
ers extend into tho late spring and
early summer. The season is now
four weeks later than it was in ISS'.I.
