The (Jeturjcrat-s are always circu-
lating we report mat mere is mutu
dissatisfaction In the republican
ranks in this district, especially
among the leaders of the delega
tions who presented candidates for
congressional honors. In this the
democracy of the district is rais.-
tajcen. To be stite any man con
testing for such an honor, or any
delegation battling for a man who
was not victorious, cannot but feel
disappointed. But when those
men rally around the victor on the
scene of the battle -and pledge their
support, it is assured that they
mean what they say. Gatch and
Vawter, and their following fought
a good fight. They went tn to
win, but when they found they
could not they smiled in the face
ofdefeat and are now pulling off
their coats to work for Mr. Her
mann. Kelley of Linn county, did
no't present himself at the close of
the convention and express his in
tentions, but it is safe to say that
Kelley is as loyal a republican as
the others. If he is a republican
he cannot refuse to do bis best for
the election of Hermann. In con
vention it was Hermann or some
other man. It was in a measure a
personal matter. It was. a fight
among republicans, whose loyalty
to party was not questioned, for the
nomination by republicans. Non
it presents a different aspect. It is
a fight not only for Hermann, but
for the republican party, and the
upholding of the republican ad
ministration. The republican who
opposes Hermann's election, is not
directing his batteries upon Her
mann but upon the republican

Can anyone look at the school
grounds at the present time and re'
gret that a few dollars had been ex
pended in the way of improvement?
Let the good work go on. The
city should now put In a hydrant
and donate water for irrigation pur
poses. As soon as possible that
row of silver maple trees should be
extended around the grounds. You
will not know the place in another
year. Besides it gives many a boy
at school, who gets into mischief
simply because ' he has nothing
better to do, a chance to use his
body and mind. He sees an ob
ject lesson before him. He is an
eye witness to the turning of
bleak, cold and barren school lot
into an attractive garden. Morally
it is good for him. I softens his
heart "love comes like flowers in
the night". It checks rough man
ners. What profane man will go
into a beautiful garden of flowers,
purposely to swear? Let the good
work go on.
The Nugget pointedly and em'
piratically again calls the attention
of parents to boys jumping on and
off the cars while in motion at the
yards. The S. P. and O. & S. E.
yards are uow filled with cars near
ly all tne time. Fast experience
tells us that railroad yards are dan
gerous places, even for those who
work, not play. It is no place for
play; it is no place for boys. Par
ents are responsible for the action
of their their children to a great
extent. There should be some way
to check the boys from playing at
such dangerous sport. If there is
any way by which this matter can
be reached by ordinance, it should
receive the attention of the city
Gatch, of Marlon, won many
friends In his manly speech after
Hermann's nomination was an
nounced. He admitted that he
was disappointed. That eras manly
He further stated that he would be
found as be had always been found,
working for his party. That he
would be no laggard. This is Mr.
Galcb's political record. He has
been an earnest republican, always
out for party Interests. The time
will come when his services to the
party will be recognized. Had his
organization been a trifle stronger,
he would have won in the conven
tion, and next June it would have
been Congressman Gatch Instead of
Congressman Hermann.
It is interesting to observe with
what rapidity certain small, ob
scure towns forge ahead, advancing
through all the stages of munici
pal growth until they become vast
commercial centers, whilst other
towns with apparently equal ad
vantages and olteu better oppor
tunities, go on year after year un
affected by the progressive move
ment all around them, apparently
icnorant or to say the least un
conscious of the general forward
movement. 1 nai mere is a reason
for this goes without saying, and
the residents of the non-progressive
town mav always be depended
upon to discourse knowing) of the
superior geographical location, or
commercial advantage, or fortunate
opportunity, or even the "good
luck" of their rapidly advancing
The history of many of our great
commercial cities cives the lie to
all these arguments as a cause of
nrotrrcss. Every one can cite in
stances during the past lew years
of small villages, existing practic
ally in the shadow of larger and
more pretentious cities, which have
thrown off the village conditions
and grown aud advanced until the
erstwhile "city" has become a
suburb of the despised village.
There is a cause for this, and the
diflerence between the progressive
and non-progressive towns is solely
and entirely the difference in char
acter of their respective citizens.
Geographical location is a granted
assest, but excellent oppor
tunities may pass unheeded by the
non-progressive citizen, whilst the
progressive citizen does not sit
down waiting for them to knock
him down, but is out creating them.
Creating is the correct word.
One man travels over Oregon
and says: "This state is wonder
fully rich in timber and minerals
and some time in the future will be
a great producer", and he goes on
his way. Another man travels
over the same roads and says:
"This state is wonderfully rich in
timber and minerals. By thunder
there's an opportunity," I'll get in
and dig here"; and in a short time
you find that man employing hun
dreds cf men; sawmills are running
under his control, railroads are
built to suit bis requirements; the
natural resources of the state are
converted into the finished com
mercial product and sent north and'
south in a never ending stream.
The town he locates in "jumps"
ahead. The little "Johnny all
sorts" store with the citizens sitting
around spitting at the stove, is con
verted into the modern well appoint
ed. well served department store.
Money comes in and is paid out tn
wages; comfortable houses spring up
everywhere, ' drummers" take in
the town as a "growing center,
brick builSincs appear on the streets
Every citizen Ijecomes imbued with
a sense of his own responsibility as
a municipal atom, and works for
the city s w;ltare, and the certain
result is that the little town be
comes the much desired commer
cial center.
"Superior location," "better op
portunity," "good luck" bosh
It is said, "get up" "push" or any
other phrase in parlance which may
be applied to the progressive spirit
and municipal pride which has
been the basis ot growth in Chi
cago, Minneapolis or any other
great city where men have created
the opportunity, made the geo
graphical location, controlled the
commercial advantages and built a
big city upon the nucleus of a vtl
lage surrounded by promising
natural conditions.
Citizens of Cottage Grove please
note. Note also, that having passed
the village stage, and entered upon
the conditions of a rising manutact'
uring town, it behooves every citi
zen not the other feltow but each
individual resident to take the
position of a responsible municipal
atom; to work and pull together
for advancement; to improve exist
ing conditions, and make a city
that an eastern man, looking for
opportunities, will be favorably 1m
pressed with. Drain the cesspools
and get in a sewerage system
Improve the schools to the extent
at least of meeting the requirements
of modern sanitation. Get in line
and these things are easy of accom
plishment. Without them there is

The Lane county .Woodmen are
making extensive preparations for
their forthcoming celebration, which
will be held tn Eugene on May 13th
From nil accounts It will le a much
more elaborate affair than the gen
era! public has hnd any Idea of. As
far as the Woodmen themselves arc
concerned tlio Initiation of 200 cuudl
dates Into the order will cover the
ground, but all the other exercises
will be as much a general county
public movement as it will be of the
Woodman of the World. AH the ex
ercises will be open and free to the
public and in fact several organiza
tions, other than this oue will par
ticipate In the festivities.
During the day there will be n base
ball game, a tug of war contest, a
large list of field games and sports,
an Immense parade, public drills in
fancy military evolutions by various
companies of the the Uniform ltank,
Woodmen4)f the World, and ot tennis
of guards, Women of Woodcraft, etc.
Eugene Is expecting a great; crowd,
and in fact the reports which are
being received from throughout the
county assure that she will have one.
The two orders of Perfected Wood
craft together with their immediate
relatives alone, will number over
two thousand iicople and when It Is
remembered that the rallrond has
made spcclul low rates for the occa
sion, It can well bo thought that the
attendance will be very heavy. Al
ready eight or ten Lane county
camps of Woodmen have decided to
place floats In the parade. To this
will lie added large display figures by
all camps which are too far away to
have lloats. That of Bohemia camp
of this city will consist of an ax
.nearly twenty feet long on which
'will be Inscribed the fact that Do-1
hernia cam) Is strictly In It. Then
there will bo brass bands, companies
of the Uniform Hank, prominent
state ofllclals and of the order, madrl
grasns features, etc. The city too
will bo decorated from stem to stern
and It will bo really riuch a gathering
as no fraternal order has heretofore
had In Lane county.
State Deputy Geo. K. Kogers will
visit Bohemia camp, on the evening
of April 18th. Mr. Itogers lscredlted
with being an eloquent fraternal
speaker, and tho local camp proposes
that his visit will be productive of
good results In this part of tho
woods. Hence preparations of an
extended nature are now under way,

the Interest of the now electric power

tho new road now lielng built up

rapid progress on tho road and has
tho work well In hand, and forty
men nro crowding the work through
as fast as possible. Through Mr.
Wood It Is learned that tho grade
will Ik; greatly reduced from that of
the old road. The old grade Is said
to ho about 20 tier cent, while the
new grade will not nverage over 10
percent. The first four miles from
the Warehouse up tho canyon will
not be over 8 isir cent, while the last
two miles will bo anywhere from 10
to 12 ier cent, making an a vera go of
about 10 per cent. The shortening of
tho distance is nlso a great item,
some two miles being saved by tho
new route.
