THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1905,
The Salem Journal says two leagues
are at work in Western Oregon— the
Willamette Valley development league
and the Anti-Saloon League. Both
want to see a greater depth of water
on the bar.
While we are on the road question
and lest we forget, the streets of our
city need a great deal oJ attention, and
the time to attend to them is now.
Main Street and Pacific Avenue during
the last few days of rainy weather were
a disgrace, and no person with civic
pride should be content until some
thing is done toward their permanent
longs and that duty is, to give thought
ful and sincere consideration to the
selection of men for our coming dele
gation in Congress. With our Senior
Senator and one of our Congressmen
under conviction of crime before the
Circuit Court of the United States for
Oregon, and the other Congressman
under indictment, the men whom we
send to Washington will be scrutinized
more closely than those of any other
s ate, and our entire citizenship (as
honest, intelligent, industrious and
progressive as that of any other state )
will be judged largely by the integrity,
intelligence, and industry of those
whom we select as our representatives.
Considering this, does not the short
poem of J. G. Holland, entitled
“ Wanted—Men” , seem to fit the

Strong minds, great hearts, true faith
and ready hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not
Men whom the spoils of office cannot
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honor, and will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue,
And damn their treacherous flatteries

live above the fog
