The next meeting is set for

which T. Edgar is intending to
open up in the building lio has
recently purchased is that of a
saloon. It is also rumored that

the matter came up for a final
hearing Corvallis failed even to
have a delegate at the meeting,
while such places as Amity, Mc
Coy, McMinnville had delegates
and Independence had several.
If Corvallis can't help itself it
should not be asking for the co
operation of the other towns.
Strong opposition, it is Baid,
arises in Portland against referring
the Lewis and Clark exposition ap
propriation to a vote of the people
under the initiative and referen
dum law. This opposition to an
expression of the people is in bad
faith. We believe the appropria
tion would carry the state by a
large yote, but whether it does or
not the people should be heard in
the matter. We believe in the
majority rule, and that's the true
