Oregon, with our frxperiinvnts
in direct legislation ami in other
rejects looking towanls also
luio democracy, tho imperative
need of a wiJo-spreal iutel
licenco is undtniftbU t)rt';on
is u conservative state in many
ways, despite tho radical de
parture in governmental meth
ods. Iler progress along ed
ucational lines has been slow,
and even yet her Mippori of
higher institutions is fur below
that of other states. Tho state
normal school at Monmouth is
an example in point. Two
years ago, its appropriation was
held up by referendum, though
sustained by the people at the
polls. "This year, it must be
conducted on subscription and
at the personal sacrifice of the
faculty, because of an executive
One of the measures to be
voted upon in the June election
is the referendum on the State
University Appropriation. The
qualified voters are to decide
upon the meits of $125,000 for
this institution. This bill was
passed by the legislature, vetoed
by the governor and then re
passed by an almost unanimous
vote. We believe that the
people should sustain the bill
by a large majority, not alone
because the measure i3 meritor
io s but for the reason that
this is a crisis in the cause of
higher education in this state.
The defeat of the bill at this
time will put Oregon back
twenty-five years in her ed
ucational development and in
vite the most odious com
parisons with her neighboring
states, with whom she is engaged
in the keenest competition for
the new settlers now pouring
upon the Pacific coast.
The unparallelled develop
ment of the states of the Miss
issippi valley has been coinci-
dent with the establishment and
growth of their educational
system. The large majority of
prospective settlers upon this
coast come from these and other
communities with progressive
educational ideas. Idaho, Wash
ington and California are not
slow to . publish broadcast
through their press anything
detrimental to Oregon and just
now they are making much of
the threatened disaster to our
State University. California
with its appropriation of $822,
148 for the State University,
Washington with $500,000 and
even little Idaho with $129,000
per annum naturally , regard
Oregon's proposed $125,000 as
parsimony. What they think of
the proposal to deny even this
may readily be imagined. .
. We do not believe that the
intelligent, sober-minded voters
of Polk county will turn down
this appropriation. We must
register our opinion on the mat
ter of higher education in no
uncertain way. The vote ofj
Polk county two years ago on
the normal referendum was used
with telling effect in the legisla
ture against the Monmouth nor
mal, Polk's one state institution.

Construction Work to Begin Im
mediately on Cannery.
The board of directflf of the Inde
pendence Cannery Company at their
meeting on the 20th inst elected the
follow-in? officers: President. II
Hirschberg; vice-president, O. A
Wells; secretary, W. A. Messner
treasurer, V. L. Bice. The director
have purchased a suitable site for
the cannery from Mrs. Hill, the loca
tion being the three lots just north of
the Sperling property, on the main
line of the S. P. railway, a block south
of the depot.
Arrangements are all made for the
beginning of construction work on
the erection of the building at once,
It is stated by the board of directors
that the cannery will be positively
ready to handle the season's crop.
New subscriptions for stock are
coming in every day, which is in
tended to show the popularity of the
cannery. Farmers are beginning to
make enquiries of the board of direc
tors the kinds and varieties of
fruits and vegetables that will be de
sired for canning purposes. On ac
count of the earliness of the demands
for setting out tomatoes it jnay be
well to state at this time that the
varieties most in demand are the
Livingston's Favorite, Perfection and
the Paragon. The requirements are
from two thousand to twenty-five
hundred plants to the acre.

BELIEVES IN QUALITY
When a customer has once
been convinced that it pays to
buy quality, he will seldom eeek
a store that caters merely to
those who wish to buy the great
est quantity for the money.
There are communitien where
quality arguments would have
no weight, but tnere are many
more that can be convinced that
quality pay9 it the right argu
ments are used.
Quality arguments are some
times slow trade builders, but
they build exceeding strong.
Bargain Goods are only a
bargain to those who have not
the money with which to buy
the best; but there i3 generally
ii hole in the bargain.
If vou simpiv want bargain
goods, pay the cheap price and
cet them. If you want abso
lutely the best, the ' kinds that
bring you back, pay more and
Quality has been behind every
business that has built up a solid
reputation. . ,
I believe in Quality and guar
antee the quality of all my goods'
to those who wish the best.
