For the benefit and enlighten
ment of those sluring individuals
who only find satisfaction in doing
the county harm by fighting its
;...rpcte we wish to state,
,t mimtv court has
done more for the tax payer than
any other administration in our
!.:,...., Tim litiildtncr of the court
, ' ' a n. ,i,;,rftr the rock I
nousc mm - """"b
for county roads, is today costing
the taxpayer of Lane county only 1
mill. Where is there a man in
Lane county who lives along a well
crushed-rock road who begrudges 1
mill a year for the benefit of that
road? Where is there a man who
would change the new court house
for the old one? We have a county
court which dares to do its duty to
the county in the face of the threat
that they will lose the populist sup
port. They are making improve
ments that are lasting and bene
ficial at a cost so light that it is
ridiculous to refer to it. We hear
the cry from the farmers each year
that the roads are horrible. Now we
have a county court that has put a
rock crusher at work for us at the
expense of the county, scattering
the same money we paid in taxes
among our laborers, crushing up
rock to better our roads, and at
the same time we have that class of
men so "loose of soul" that they
throw a slur on the county admin
istration by insinuations. A man
might just as well lie as to in
sinuate. In fact it looks better.
However for the benefit of those
who prefer to "insinuate" we wish
to make this correction and add a
little information. We wish to state
that it costs on an average to run
the rock crusher $25 per dav
instead of ' 'abbut' ' $50 . That this
expense is paid by the couuty at an
expense of less than 1 mill exti a
taxation, that from 60 to 100 loads
of rock can be prepared for road
purposes a day. That the number
of men emploved is 10; that they
are citizens of our county; that
the wages $1.50 for man and $2.50
for man and team are paid for by
the county and they spend the
money they earn in helping make
decent roads in the county; that the
county court is alright and that
those who have an ambition to have
the county recognized as a pro
gressive and deserviu'g portion of
the state, without regard to poli
tics, commend the county adminis
tration. Dewey thus far indicates that he
is not particular about becoming a
presidential candidate. The ad
miral will show his good sense if
he keeps out of it. He no doubt
would make a fairly good president
but there is no assurance that he
would make as good a president as
a fighter. The people know and he
knows that he is a fighter, and
while the people have great con
fidence in Admiral Dewey, and
know him to be a fighter they
don't know and he himself is un
certain about his ability to preside
over the destinies of Uncle
Sara's domain.
The price of silver salmon is
now higher than ever known in tho
history of Columbia rivei fishing.
The administration should
blamed for this too.
The city of Cottage Grove am
indulge in no better economic I
measure than to grade Main street
l and keep that rock ci usher at work
mis winter, it has been the ex
perience of every town that good
streets increase the value of the
property. It costs something to
be sure, but such expenditures are
unavoidable and while it should
not be the purpose, nud we arc pre
pared to say is not the purpose of
the council to impose unjust street
assessments upon the property
owners, a move in that direction
j should be made and right away too.
If property owners cannot afford to
grade now, when can they? If it
is considered too hard on sonic of
the property
owners to .grade up
the streets in front of their business
houses, in as much as everybody
admits that good streets are a
necessity, why not make a start in
the right direction and grade a
; block or two this fall and a block
or two next spring? While it
would not be as effectual a3
a thorough grading at one time
still it would be a big improve
ment upon the present condition of
Main street, and certainly no one
who has any desire to see and
travel over good streets would ob
jectto it.
The Christian Church is having a
treat in the matter of selecting a
regular pastor for the church for
the next j'ear. Several of the
Divinity school boys have made
heroic efforts to please the congre
gation, notably among them being
Rev. Marion Horn who preached a
week ago last Sunday and Rev.
Matlock who discoursed last Sun
day. Rev. Horn is favorably com
mented upon and so is Rev. Mat
lock, he being a very polished and
fluent speaker. Just to create an
interest and to draw out the ma
terial that the Divinity school is
working upon and molding into
ministers of the law of God it
might be a good idea not to judge
too quickly, and give some of the
others a chance to win the laurels.
As it is now it can be counted in
no'other light than a friendly but
animated contest for the place.
Get into the fight young gentle
men! he that wears the sword
should win it.
Pictures of Boer fighters, as they
are presented in the various papers
indicate that they will fight to a
