The -itic'i s ol Cottle Grove
S''ein 10 feel Unit the Willnuiette
'al!ey Co. is utitl d to a franchise,
eena thirty-year franchise, and
tbat however, under suitable n
stricliui. Severil ordinances have
been prepared, and month have
been wasted ' over the matter and
nothiug done. Any large corpor
ation expects to h ve a right to do
business, the same us any small cor
poration or firm, and that is right,
i'he Willamette Valley Co. have iu-
v' ted more mouey here within the
last few' mouths, than any other
hi'igle comnanv or person. True
they are nuking mouey off the
light they furnish the citizens; the
merchant is uaking money off the
groceries be tells, but the Vil
umette Co. is paying out wagesto
H8 men, fuel, and a thousand other
xpenses all the lime, the same as
the merchant. The company does
not expect to get a franchise that will
throttle similar industries, it simply
wants the right to act as servants
f the public, and it should be
Cottage Grove and uo other place
ver grew or became any place
without such corporations, and they
must have rights to do business.
We waut to see Cottage Grove
grow, an I become not only the
town of Lane county, but to staid
at one end of the W'llamette valley,
; 8 Portland does at the other, and
that will never be if corporations
are not granted a welcome to the
town, and that under fair fran
chises. Within a short time the system
of a tax ou gross earning will pay
i.ito the city treasury far more in
ihe way of income, and that com
mensurate with the cities growth,
than anything thut could be
planned now, und more equitably.
Let the council cousider the pre
ent franchis", and if it is suitable on
noth sides grant it, uud bid the
Willamette Co a royal welcome to
do business here. The citizens
j.i;l that it is right and will look to
the council to carry out their wants.
Dairyiug exhibits will be made
i prominent fenttne of the State
Fair, For, the first time it may be
possible that Cottage Grove will be
1 'presented. Dairyiug here is
coming to the front fast. More
;ream is being brought to the
creamery every jiunth, md the
Jarmors are im roving tlmr stock,
md giving that end of their farm
ing more attention.
The Oregon State Fair will -o n
1j9 on. Those who have attended
uavo found it a wonderful educa
lor, so to speak, when they have
gone to the Fair seeking light.
The Fair is uttended by cruwd.
and people from the farms' go to
the Oregon hUate Fair in large
numbers. It wouM, however be
interesting to know what propor
tion of the farmeis have.never been
to tbe State Fair. The statement,
would doubtless be safu which
claims that one-half the farmers in
each state have never been to a
State Fair. Th'ey lo-e much by
not going, as Stute Fairs are in a
sense indications of Uie pulse of
progress. Tbe muu who never
goes to tbem is in danger of being
iiuable to keep step in the forward
movement af agriculture. Is it not
theboundeu duty, therefore, of tho
farmer, who has a neighbor who
never went to a State Fair, to try
to persuade him to go, if not . only
for once? In very many seuses the
words "come and nee" may be significant,
