The Capital Journal has the courtesy to clip from its exchanges whenever a squib is published which the Journal thinks worthy of reproduction. This is to the ... a a credit of the Journal. as a ruie county newspaper men don't expect to see the columns of larger papers 1 filled with country "editorials" and I u .. 1 .1 . a i news items but when they do see an item taken from the country paper, they like to seethe paper that thinks well enough of the article to renrint it. Pive DrODer credit tor it. , and not deliberately steal it. It's a . . , I little thing to mention, but its the little things that count, and its the little things that some of the L J 1. "ereat" naners of Oreeon de- liberately steal. The Journal has set a good example. The Oregonian is giving more attention to the mining interests of this section just now than ever be fore. In the past, the Oregonian has either been misinformed with reference to the vaule of the mining interest which lay in the back yard of its office or else wilfully ignored it. However the time has come when the Oregonian cannot afford to close her columns to the mining industries of this section either through ignorance of the true worth, or disinclination to assist in their development, especially when its columns are overflowing with Buffalo Hump literature. Every road supervisor should realize the responsibility imposed upon him and do his duty. That's one thing that has been the matter with road work in Oregon. Super visors, while no doubt, meaning well, have been a trifle negligent and at all times too lenient. Every man who is in debt to the county in the some of a road tax should pay it in good honest work, and if he isn't interested in good roads, and manly enough to pay the slight obligation which always re verts to his benefit, the road super visor should see that he does it anyway. That's one of his duties. In way of a mining item we might mention that in the Bohemia district is already to be found one 20-stamp, two 10-stamp, three 5-stamp, and two 2 stamp mills, making a total of 47 stamps in oper ation there at the present time, with a number of others going in this season. When it is taken into con sideration that not one has failed to pay a handsome profit on the in vestment, its a pretty good showing. Claude Branton as previously announced in the Nugget, before his execution confessed to the kill ing of Linn. Tuesday's Guard acknowledges receipt of a copy of said confession and published the same in lull Thursday. His con fession in the main concurs with the testimony of Green, his accom plice. An effort is on foot to celebrate the Fourth of July in this city, If it is possible to secure financia support to make the celebration complete success, by all means let's celebrate; but if we can't have good one we had better get along without any. There isn't much danger of a drought before time for the June rains. THE A AND h ASSOCIATION. Closing Exercises of the Alumni and Literary Associations. Owing to lack of space and time tho following report was omitted from Inst week's Xttftrct; Our public schools haven taken one moru forward step during the past year that of organizing a literary society nntl an alumni ' association. Thwao two organizut ions have met a long felt need in our high school work.

S. N. S. at Monmouth. This association, having become permanent, will meet annually to renew the ties of friendship of former school days, and at tho same time give to each other and to this com munity an educational inspiration. At the close of tho work this year these two organizations mot and rendered a program at the Martin hall to about 300 invited gueati. There were many visitors and friends from other schools in the state who speak in tho highest terms of our schools. The program consisted of vocal and instrumental music, recitations and short addieBses from members of the Alumni. Each participant did justice to his or her part. Space will not per mit us to mention each part separately. The main feature of the evening's en tertainment however was a lecture by Prof. E. II. McAlister of the U of 0. Prof. McAliiter had chosen for his sub ject, "The Age of Inquiry." There could not have been a more appropriate subject for the occasion. The speaker held tho large audience in rapt atten tion for about an hour. Each member of the Alumni and the public generally poke in the highest terms of Prof. Mc- Alister's lecture. Indeed the Alumni could not have made a better choice of peakers this year, and many express the idea of trying to secure him on other like occasions if possible. The people of Cottage Grove and vicinity have reason to be greatly pleased with the work done this year in the public schools. With the assistance of the new rock crusher this section of Lane county will soon have passable roads. One member of the Fourth of July committee on finance reports having received subscriptions to the amount of $30 in less than an hour Wednesday morning. A friend at our elbow aptly remarks that the copperhead American can very accurately measure himself by noting the effect on an audience of the names of Fuston and Atkinson or Hoar and Dewey.
