Strictly in Advance.
The way to build up Dallas is to pat
ronise Dallas people.
It is altogether probable that the
precincts that furnish the Re
publican majority in Polk county
will have a say in nominating the
ticket at the coming Republican
convention . These precincts have,
bo far, shown no inclination to
dictate the policy of the Republican
party or capture the county con
vention for personal ends, and are
earnest in their desire to obliterate
all firmer sectional and factional
lines in the approaching campaign
and nominate a ticket that can be
elected in June. This is the only
correct and proper course to pur
sue, and it is the course that will
be pursued, even if it becomes
necessary to sit down upon a few
self-constituted leaders who are
just now engaged in a frantic effort
to run the county and dictate the
nomination of theentire Republican
ticket. 1'he Observer hopes to
see due recognition given to all
trueand loyal Republicans in Polk
county whether they live in Repub
lican precincts or not, and prefers
the nomination of a clean ticket,
equitably distributed over the
county, rather than the triumph of
any faction in the convention. One
means victory at the polls for the
Republican party; the other means
a continuation of strife and bitter
ness in the Republican ranks and
the election of about half of the
Democratic ticket.
A friendly interest in the welfan
and growth of the thriving town of
Falls City prompts us to express
the hope that our neighbors up at
the other end of th railroad will
lose no time in securing a right-of
way for the system of gravity
water-works they propose to build.
The time has come when water
works are a positive necessity in
Falls City, as the town is practically
without protection against loss by
fire. The destruction of the sub
stantial business buildings which
have been built in the last few
years and the loss of the big saw
mill plants from which the town
derives its greatest benefits would
proe serious indeed, and our
neighbors can no longer afford to
ue wiinoui a suitaiuo protection tor
their homes and business houses
and manufacturing concerns. It
is to be hoped that the council will
proceed vigorously with the work,
already begun, of securing a righl-of-way
from the mountain springs
to the town limits. When this
right-of-way is secured, the council
can begin work on the plant at its
convenience and the best time to
secure the necessary concessions
from property owners along the
route is right now. Every day
that the work is deferred will add
to the cost of securing the needed

The war is on between Russia
and Japan, and up to date the
little brown men have decidedly
the best of it. Japanese torpedo
boats attacked the Russian squad
ron in the outer roads of Port
Arthur Monday night, and three
Russian ships were damaged.
Japan's fleet attacked two Russian
warships, Tuesday, and destroyed
both. Three Russian transports,
convoying 2000 troops, have been
captured. The Japanese have
landed 8000 soldiers at Chemulpo.
It is believed by naval experts that
Japan now holds control of the sea.
There will be 47G votes in the

The increase of 29 votes is due to

Famous Band Will Appear at Grand
Opera House In Salem, Feb
ruary 19.
Tho famous Kilties Band, of Belle
ville Canada, will play fit tho Grand
Opera House. Salein, on Friday, Feb
ruary 19. This organization is com
posed of picked men from the live
crack Canadian Regimental Bands
and is now admitted to be the liuest
band on the road. It seems to have
taken the place of Sousa's this season,
ns the illnessof that great bandmaster
has compelled him to abandon his
tours for the present. The Kilties
have amongst the members a vocal
choir of eighteen splendid voices
which sings the beautiful Scottish
songs at each concert and invariably
receives five to eight recalls, Tho
vocal soloist is Mr. J. Coates Loek
hardt, the tenor formerly with Gruu
Savage Opera Co. An additional
attraction especially engaged for this
tour is tho "Clan JohnstoneTroup" of
Scotch dancers direct from the l'aluee
Theater, London. The band will
parade before the concert, with its
giant drum major at the head and the
music being furnished by the regi
mental pipers, buglers and drummers,
tho band not being permitted to play
on march in foreign countries. The
sight of these stalwart Highlanders
in their handsome kilted uniforms,
bate kneed and bronzed, marching to
tho martial strain of the true military
pipers is most inspiring. Mr. Frank
Meredith, tho manager of tho Opera
House, is saving no efforts to make
this tho great event of this year's
theatrical season. Tho band will
arrive in Salein direct from Portland
in its private ear "The Kilties."
Low Rate on Mohair.
II. L. Feu ton, secretary of the Polk
County Mohair Association announces
that tho Southern Paeilie Company
will grant a special freight rate of
live cents per 100 poundson shipments
of mohair to Dallas from any point in
Polk county. This rate applies only
to mohair in the 190-1 pool. This re
duction will be greatly appreciated by
growers living in the outlying dis
tricts of the county, as it will save
them the expense of hauling their
mohair to Dallas by team.

Fund Is Sufficient to Build Walk and
Leave Small Balance.
The contract for building tho side
walk from Dallas to the I. O. O. F.
cemetery was (warded to Willard Gil
bert yesterday, his bid .being $45.
This bid is for laying the walk, and
does not ineludo the costof the lumber
and nails, which are to be delivered
on the ground by the building com
mittee. Two bills were received, the
other being that of A. J. Martin, who
agreed to do tho work for $72.20 and
donate $5 to the sidewalk fund. The
contract for furnishing the lumber
wai awarded to the W. W. Johnson
Lumber Company at $9 per 1000 feet.
The company will furnish the lumber
at SO, and donate 50 cents on each
thousand feet used. Mr. Gilbert offer
ed to furnish lumber at $8.20 per
thousand, but preference was given to
the local mill.
The amount of money raised by
J. J. Wiseman is $103.25. This
amount taken together with the $120
donated by the lodges of the city, will
be sufficient to bui'd the walk and
leave u small balance. All money
not used in the construction of the
walk will be deposited in the bank as
a repair fund.

fund, with the amount given by each,
