As a majority of the school districts of
Clackamas county will soon engage their
teachers for tin-spring and summer terms of
school, it bchoou'sthe district officers to en
gage the hct preceptors that can bo ob
tained with the limited means at their dis
posal. It is false economy to employ cheap
teachers. The dav is past when the an le
ward youth of twenty or thereabouts is seen

become prevaiei t, and the male youth is
expected to hac completed hi common

much shorter time to take his course of!
common school stu lies than under the old
regime of years ago, an I it is therefore nec
essary that he haie the hciii'lit ol the very
best class of instructors. The successful
teacher spends nnich time, money, and dis
ciplinary training in preparing for the
work of his profession, and it is but just ,
he should receive a fair recompense lor

has done well by them, and it is much bet

Tun tendency in recent years to larger
emigration from eastern Kurope and Asia
has enipha.size.l the need of more caretul ;
tuiiervisjou of all imniigralion. , As facili

jli- Mi l-en of the sor and oppressed

V.:t .-, th; single emigrant coming to
this country, perhaps by accident, may start
astream which, unless confined, will men
ace our institutions. I.aas to guard against
such a result, hut lik-ral enough to -rmit j
desirable emigration, cannot ho soon be en
acted. The financial effects of emigration
on a large scale are sometimes overlooked.
Probably forty percent, of the emigrants
to this country are assisted by prepaid tick
ets, or money furnished by relatives or
friends who have preceded them. In this
way hundreds of million of dollars have
been taken out of the I'nited State and dis
tributed aiming the poor of every nation of
Europe. It is not Phi much to sav that if
Kurope were for one year deprived of the
vastsums sent thither by the Cuited States
by immigrant, every depart inent of Euro
pean enterprise would feel the shock. Every
year large number of emigrants, especially
Italians, return Iroin a brief visit to their
old honics. Their presence among their
old friends, with all the evidences of prox
imity, and making know n the customs and
institutions ol their new homes, gives new
impulse to emigration, and cannot fail to
influence the customs and institution of
their nutive lands.
Thk trial of Sandy Olds for the brutal
murder of Emil Webcrin Portland, has been
concluded at II i INIjuro, ami the jury brought
in a verdict of manslaughter. The murder
was premeditated, and a cold blooded one,
and seieral of the gamblers of Portland
claim that they have spent at least ten
thousand dollars in their efforts to save him
from the gallows, and they regard the out
come ' the trial ut Hillsboro a signal vic
tory. Several important witnesses for the
state had been spirited away, and new evi
dence wus brought in that favored the de
fendant. The jury was selected from a
class that could not read, or at least objec
tion were made to all that had been readers
of the Oregonian. Prosecuting Attorney
Stephens, of Portland, and District Attor
ney Mcliride of this city, made strong and
laudable efforts for his conviction. Objec
tions were made by District Attorney Mc
Bride to Joe Day and other policemen, who
were called up as witnesses, which raised a
breeze, but Mr. Mcliride pluckily replied
that he proposed to show that the witness
had been paid by the vilest element of the
Portland slums, and that the sources from
which he formerly derived his living as a
special policeman were so disreputable that
the witness was utterly unworthy of belief.
feElf atok Tongue, of Washington county,
is accused of being the active power that
perpetrated the defeat of the new tux and
assessment laws ut the last session of the
legislature. The fuilurctoaincnd or change

ple w ho have taxable property to go in debt,
and the lute legislature cannot be too se
verely condemned for its inattention to the
desires oi the people who sent them there

owner still (lodges Ihe issue, and the bulk of

pjrativcly small, and the burden fulls on
the man of moderate means, who willevent

Til kick is no economy In sending east lor

It is now an assured fact that Oregon will
have a credittblo display at the world' ex
position. The stute board of agriculture
are taking active steps in the premises, and

Almost every county in the state ha a
horticultural society where the fruit grower
assemble at stated periods, and discus mat
tors of imimrtanoe to Us memlirr, and of
subjects that require united action. Fruit
growing is becoming an industry of such
importance in Clackamas county tha( linrti
C11turists should organine lor their mutual
benefit. That such an institution would
prove ol immense advantage ha been ahun
ilanlly demonstrated by these organizations
in other sections. Clackamas county is des
tined to become one of the great fruit ec-
tionsof the Northwest, and the number of
trees being planted are steadily augmenting
The incorimration of the lluttc Creek and
Molullu rail road is an item of iniKrtance
to the K-ople of Clackamas couiuy. Its
construction means a road that will
traverse the richest rtions of Marion
and Clackamas counties with a terminus
both at Oregon City and Bulem. It will
bring In close proximity to market the com
paratively isolated sections of Ilutte Creek,
Scott's Mills, WillioitSodaSpringsand Mo
lalla. All this country is rich in timber,
anil possesses the finest agricultural lands
in Oregon. There can be no question but
what this road would be a paying invest
incut, and would add Immensely tothebusi
ness und commercial Importance of Oregon
City, and would be of vast benefit to the
residents wherever the roail is located. The
completion of this road would make Ore
gon City the terminus of an important rail
road, and our board of trade and citizens
should give the enterprise every encourage
Wool, growers are becoming prosierous
under Ihe new turilf bill. The adverse tanfl

of our wool-growing Industry, and started
it on the decline which has since continued
The triumph of Protection in the presiden
tial election of 18as, which gave the assur
ance that the errors in the wool schedule of
the taaifTof 1S83 would be corrected, ashas
actually been done by the McKinley bill,
started wool growing on an upward course.
The latest issue from the department of ag
riculture brings the gratifying intelligence
to fanners that the increased interest in
sheep and wool, noted a year ago, ha been
continued, and this has been probably the
most profitable branch of our stock industry
during the year, and "that the decline in
wool production, which began with the
slaughter of Hocks In 84-'H5, after the ad
verse tariff of 183 went into effect, has been
cnecked, theuggregate clip for 1890 being es
timated at 27G,0iX),0O0 lbs. over the previous
season." Protection anil not free wool, wa
the remedy for the declining wool produc
tion. Tub combine, that male a monopoly of
the steamboat business on Paget Hound has
been broken, but Astoria and the lower Co
lumbia ure gulling under the yoke of a
steamboat monopoly tht grinds them almost
U) despair. Freight and passenger rales are
soexhorbitantthat Astoria'scoinmercial re
lations with Portland, and points up the
Willamette valley are suffering to an alarm
ing extent. Astoria and the lower Colum
bia raise no wheat; it is not essentially an
ugricuiturtil country; but the population of
that section arc cash customers for the
products of the Willamette valley. And
when the Astoria boats cinch the people of
the lower Columbia by exhorbitant freight
rates they are slabbing at the producing In
terests of the Willamette valley and the
wholesale merchants of Portland, for ex
horbitant rates of transportation drive the
trade of Astoria to Ban Francisco and Cull
fornltt. As un instance of this Messrs. Foard
& Stokes, leading merchant and shippers
of Astoria, a few days ago received a car
load of flour from a California mill by the
steamer Oregon. They cluim that they
would prefer to buy their flour in Portland
add Hulcm, as they have been doing in the
past, but they cannot stand the present
high rates of freight.

Editor or Eistekpuihk:
It is hardly necessary to call the atten
tion of the people to the disgracefully, lillliy
condition of our city, for they all know it
is Impossible to overlook such a condition,
but it 1 necessary to point out the urgent
need of Immediute remedy for this condi
tion of afluirs.
Of thediseascs resulting front filth und bad
druinageor no drainagh, thiscltyls having
its share, and will unless something is done
have more than itsshare. When the inhabi
tants ol a city so far forget what Is due to
laws of health as to throw all sorts of
wuste and kitchen refuse ulrectly into the
streets and alleys there to lie and breed
genus ol disease, it is high time our board
of health took some action in the matter.
The remedy doe not consist simply In
spending money for any of the so-called
disinfectants, for it is a waste of time and
money to throw much or little lime, etc
over these plague spots. Clean them out
and then keep them clean ; do it before
the warm weather, do it at once, a few dol
lars expended in that way may save many
dollars to doctors or undertakers; do not
waste your time looking to see If your
neighbor bus a clean buck yard or fester-
lug sink drain or cesspool, look to your
own, Muny times strangers visit our town
and see only Unit portion of it only under the
bluff, and declare it to he "the filthiest
town they ever suw," to our sorrow be it
said, but who can deny it? Where will
you find such another? Look along Main
street from the bridge to the basin and see
the sidewalk on both sides literally bor
dered with a green and stagnant foul and
fever breeding muck holes, deeper and
worse in the front of the shop doors, there
to catch all the sweepings refuse from store
or 'saloon ; and the rear of nearly every
place is worse than the front, if you will
only take the trouble to Investigate.
Will they heed?. Will our board ofheiilth
enforce any or all of the regulations per
taining to these matters? If not, then It
would be well to publish the localities
