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 improvement. 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 occasion? “ God give us men! A time like this demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands; Men whom the lust of office does not kill; Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy; 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 without winking; Tall men, sun-crowned men, men who live above the fog In public duty and private thinking. For when the rabble with their thumb worn creeds, Their large professions and their little deeds, Mingle in selfish strife-lo Freedom weeps, Wrong rules the land, and waiting jus tice sleeps.” It is to be hoped that the “ reversion of title” to property in this city upon which intoxicating liquors are supposed to have been sold will be settled this time and for all time. It strikes us however, that the cases that have been pending in our Circuit Court for three or four years, if pushed to an issue or decision, might have answered the CONGRESS AT McMINNVILLE. purpose of the college people just as well and resulted in a discontinuance Plans Perfected for Holding Farmers’ and Shippers' Congress Nov. 11. of liquor selling by those who have been sitting on the “ volcano.” The members of the Willamette Valley Development league of McMinnville have perpected plans for It is gratifying to know that muc^ the holding of a Farmers’ and Shippers’ work of a permanent character is being Congress in that city on Nov. 11.
