ihe UDserver quite loltily in
forms ns we are in no danger of in
dictment for manslaughter because
of unduly exciting the torpid mol
cules in its editor's brain the "in
sanity dodge would save us. Even
tinder the conditions suggested we
should consider ourselves in partic
ularly bad luck to have to exchange
localities with Bro. Doughty.
If those the Lord loveth he
chagteneth, then, it is reasonable to
suppose that the Democratic party
is in good standing at the throne
of Grace, and there is yet hope for
it in the future. However, it is
safe to say that its political bosses
receive only a moiety of comfort
from the assurance of the biblical
text. There is a certain degree of
satisfaction in the reflection that
they have ample leisure to give
the scriptural lessons their prayer
hie age in wnicn we live is in
tensely practical and it is also
highly educational. This is an era
of commerce, industry and finance
Under the pressure of this intensely
practical and intellectual life keen
commercial competition and re
lentless struggl" for existence which
each wages against all a well
rounded education has come to
mean the open door to success.
Existing social conditions have
made it obligatory upon the individ
ual to fit himself intelletually and
morally for the great world-
struggle into which he must enter
sooner or later. It is now rec
ognized on ever hand that the
educated man, other conditions be
ing equal, is better equipped for the
active duties of life than he who is
deficient in educational training.
To tie one all the great highways
of life are open while the other is
compelled to trudge along narrow
and rugged paths. Education has
become a sine qua non of success
and usefulness. It is the civilizer
of the race; it enlarges men's views
and reveals a new world to his
moral and intellectual vision; it
gives meaning to life and puts its
possessor in touch with the uplift
ing tide of civilization.
IxiKrKMK.oK is greatly in neot
of a free ferry, there is no diversity
of opinion on that laiint, but tho
lcst method by which to establisl
KUt h a ferry is a mooted question.
Some say that it should lie done by
taxation, others suggest voluntary
contributions. He that as it may
a free ferry is needed at leant one
way. That is to say all persons
coming to Independence from the
Marion county side should lie
grossed over the river free of charge.
1 his is simply a business prop
osition. It is a fair, square bid for
trade that legitimately belong to
this city. There is a largo and
thrifty farming community along
the rich bottoms and adjacent foot
hills on the east side to which In
dependence is the nearest and most
atcessiblo trading point. The riv
er is tho only barrier to this trade,
aid it is a barrier only in the sense
that these farmers have to pay toll
to reach the city. The small pro
ducer can ill afford the expense.
If he takes five dozen eggs or i
half dozen pounds of butter to mar
ket it requires twenty per cent of
this produce to pay the expense of
ferriage. There is also a large
amount of wheat produced in that
section, which should be stored in
Independence, but hard driven far
mers can not afford to pay ferriage.
This trade naturally belongs to this
piace, and if our citizens will only
show a little public spiriti dness in
the matter it can be made a source
of substantial revenue, increasing
in volume as the country becomes
t'hickly settled and developed.

Some of Oregon's big dailies have
been looking up the Willamette
valley's weather record for the
month of October since 1850. The
data is not absolutely accurate but
sufficient information has teen
gathered to establish the fact that
the month just past has been the
most phenomenal October in the
history of the country. The aver

from two to four inches in the

the Moslem fanatics will not listen
to the dictates of reason and hu
