NOTICE TO REPUBLICANS. East Cottagu Gkovb. The primary election to elect 1 1 delegates to the Republican County Convention will' be hild in East Cottage Grove precinct on Satur day, March rend, 1903, at 20'clock. p, m.. at Martin's Hall. G. R. Chrisman, Chairman. Wkst Cottage Grove. The primary election to elect 10 delegates to the Republican County Convention, will be held in East Cottace Grove precinct on Satur day, March 22nd, 1902, at Masonic Hall at 2:30 P. M. G. R. Chrisman, Chairman. There should be a meeting of the citizens of Cottage Grove immedi ately 1 with the view of organizing a commercial club at least of ap pointing a reception committee to meetj aud impart' information to those coming here from abroad with the. view of locating. What is everybody's business is nobody's business'. An effort should be made to impress these people in the right way, and at the same time protect them from being run over by a' class of people who are always too anxious to get in on the ground floor with what they have to sell. Iu every community there is to be found people who from one cause and pnother are desirous of dispos ing of their property. Such is the case here; but it is not necessary for property owners desiring to sell out to run over each1 other in an attempt to lard a new comer. In fact such an action on the part of those holding real estate is apt to disgust the immigrant and turn himlfrom our community into some other section; whereas, if he were , given a chance to get his breath and to get acquainted with the people, and the country before he was solicited to buy, his impression would be much more favorable, and his stay would be assured. Don.'t hurry the new comer. Give him'time and he will stay. This part of Oregon, iu particular, bears acquaintance. We have nothing to be afraid of. This is her worst of seasons. Let them see Oregon at her ,worst and then they will be pleased with her best. TONG U&8 A MEXD STENT. The House Committee on Irriga tion of Arid Lands yesterday ordered a favorable report on the bill drafted by senators and repre sentatives of the Western states, with an amendment giving each state and territory the major portion of the irrigation fund derived from its public lands sales. The bill has been before the committee for some weeks, and has undergone minor changes, the ameudment added yesterday being first of real im portance. As originally framed, the bill created a general fund from pro ceeds from the sale of public lands iu the arid land states, the Secre tary of the Interior being given au thority to expend this amount in the reclamation of the. arid tracts. Chairman Tongue, ofjtbecommittee, has maintained that this gives the Secretary of the Interior, too wide a discretion,' and that each state should retaiu the bulk of its own public land sales. It was his amendment which prevailed yester day.'all the members present vot ing for it except Mr. Newlands, of Nevada, one of the original framers of the bill. T?be report will be drafted by Representative Mondell; of Wyoming, and will be urged by its friends to early consideration in the house. Washington Post. The amendment was timely, and is evidence that Representative Tongue is not asleep, in matters of interest to the Western states. Are you goiug to register? John P. Altgeld, cx-govcruor of Illinois, died suddenly at his hotel iu Joliet, 111., Wednesday nioruing, after a sickness of n fow hours. While he was undoubtedly justly criticised at times during his public life, for all of that he had many admirable traits, among them char ity, which cau always be relied up on to cover up a multitude of sins. The primaries are soon to be held. Let every man who attends do so with the spirit of fairness for all concerned. Let him remember that it takes good men in the pri maries, who know best how to work for their constituency, to get good men before the convention and effect their nomination. Every re publican should get out at the pri maries and help things along from a broad party point of view. MASS MEETING. A mass meeting will be held at Martin's Hall on the evening of March 24 for the purpose of nomi nating a mayor, recorder and councilmen, to be elected for the term of one year on the first Mon day in April. Every citizen inter ested iu good government and who takes a pride in the successful manipulation of municipal affairs should be present. A dangerous counterfeit is in cir culation in the Willamette valley. It is a spurious five dollar gold piece, and is a perfectly made coin. The body of it is nickel, gold plated, and with the exception of its light weight, is so perfect as to deceive experts when new. It bears the date 1896, and has the milling of the genuine coiu. Business men would do well to keep their eyes open for this coin. Tidings. Hundreds of immigrants are now iu the borders of Oregon. Shall the people of Cottage Grove make an effort to secure its share, or shall they content themselves with the present condition of affairs, and wait for people to find out for them selves that here is one of the best localities in the state? If we trust to the latter method we will get a very small per cent of the immigra tion, and it won't be any less than we deserve. The Terry Uncle Tom's Cabin Co. played at Martin's Hall Satur day night to a good audience. While they put up a fairly good bill, they were in one sense of the word not entitled to patronage, and the people should by common con sent, decline to support such an ag gregation. They come in their own cars. They eat and sleep aboard their train. They stable their live stock and carry their own dray and team. In fact they play a game to get every dollar they can and pack it out of the town without breaking one of them. Its a one sided proposition, and should be re sented in every town in Oregon. Where a company, dependent upon the people for its support, is too niggardly and close to feed its people at a hotel, and so everlasting ly stingy that it begrudges the city drayman a dollar or two for hauling the baggage to and from the opera house, the people should wait for some other show with equal talent and not half as much greed.

All trust to see her about soon. Several new maps of the United States have been received recently, supplying a great need for working material in the school. The work of the year is being closed for the general review, pre paratory to final examination. It will be a great help to the pupils to be present during this work, as it will be the means of strengthening and gathering up all points. Remember the lecture for Friday evening by Dr. French, of the Training School, at Monmouth.
