A RECORD TO
BE PROUD OF
R.i H. Knox, a merchant of tins
city, last week made complaint to
Salem, that on June 14th' he received
notice of a consignment of potatoes
that had been shipped to him from
Gaston and up to the date of writ
ing, Friday; June 18th the shipment
had not been received. The ship
ment is of last year's stock and as
the new stock is coming into the
market every day he wanted to
know what recourse if any he could
have against the railroad .company
if obliged to receive the goods when
delivered, under the circumstances.
In reply he has been advised that It
is the opinion of the -railroad com
mission that the only remedy at hand
in the evint of a failure to reach
an amicable settlement with the com
pany.in an action at law to recover
the amount of damages.
From Gaston, situated in the north
ern part of Yamhill county, to Inde
pendence, Polk county, is a distance
of about forty miles, or an average
of about ten miles a day is the re
cord for rapid transit by the South
ner Pacific on the West Side.

The public statement of their
experience is proof the like of which

Independence. Read this case of it
given by a citizen:
Zed Rosendorf, merchant, Main St.,
Independence, Ore., says: "For ten
years I was troubled with kidney
that r was forced to walk in a stoop
ed position. My kidneys were dis

mighty man in the scriptures. Like
