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 party.

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 council. 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 nefghbors. 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 no possibility of advancement be yond the status of the one horse town. Businkss Man. DIVIDE I EMS. E, J?. Smith was one of the Wood men delegates to Eugene a week ago.

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 particulars of which will bo puli- llshed. In furtherance of their plans thoy havo Invited Mr. Geo. K. Bodgers, of Portland, to visit Cottage Grove on the evo of Saturday the 18th, and de liver an address before u Joint meet ing of the Local Camp and Circle, also of invited guests.

Mr. Mathews reports 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. NO.TES. " The O. &. S. E. It'y Is laying a new switch in the yard In this city. Thos.
