VTTEliS FA LSEHOODS.
Beginning with the first of the
month, the city took on the air of
business again, after the usual
stagnation not uncommon during
the months of July and August.
This improved condition of affairs
is accounted for in various ways.
In the first place trade is now much
more brisk in farming circles, the
wood business, which is no small
item in this section, is now at its
height, and, most of all, new
activity seems to have taken hold
of the Bohemia district. The re
cent big strikes, including the
Knott property, and in which the
Stocks & Harlow property figures
as one of the greatest in the history
"of mining in the Northwest, seems
to have added new life to the camt. 1

It will be remembered by many
that in the days of the great strife,
that there was not a man on th
face of God s lootstooi wno was
more generally hated by the demo
crats of the country than was
Abraham Lincoln. He was not
only hated but was made the butt
of ridicule, and finally murdered
by democratic assassins. Today
this demagogue Bryan, who is at
tempting to pull himself up to the
presidential chair through influence
emenatmg from those whose
hatred of Lincoln has hardly been
secreted from public gaze, is gallop
ing about the country ranting
about the immortal president, and
how he "viewed with alarm" the
conditions which were gradually
creeping upon this country. When
Bryan makes these statements he
utters falsehoods, made all the moi e
false, in that he knows that what
he says is false. However, the
best way to offset that which this
prating demagogue has to say of
Lincoln is to quote some of the
stuff that went the rounds of the
democratic press opposed to Lin
coln's renomination. Here is one
of the precious extracts, the author
of which no doubt "viewed things

Does anyone today think for a

Lincoln meant disaster to this
country? If not, can we have any
more confidence today in the
prophesies of the same prophets,

Last Tuesday, according to the
Oregonian, 287,950 shares of stock
were sold on the Portland Board,
of which 153,000. were of the Mu

This speaks loud and clear for
Oregon mines and especially for

mous old Musick there is no better
recommendation, proving that all
that has been said of the property
is well founded. The Musick has
always behaved nicely, having
never been worked at a loss to its
owners; and the stock which is now
upon the board will go like hot
cakes and double in less than
thirty days. Speaking of the sale
of the Musick stock, the Oregonian
