tion of the plans of the Oregon
Electric Railway Company, w hich
mean a system aggregating three
hundred and eighty-one miles in
length, and reaching the princi

the coast as well. McMinnville,

The line between Portland and
Salem has received such excel
lent patronage that on several
different occasions it has been
necessary to revise the schedule
to accomodate additional trains,
In the Eastern states the multi
plication of trolley lines has de
creased the passenger traffic on
the steam roads, but the latter
have felt so marked an increase
in freight traffic that the passen
ger loss has been more than com
pensated in earnings.
A very large delegation from
Albany visited Portland last
week for a double purpose. First,
the city council came to investi
gate the subject of paving, and
as a result Albany will immedi

Will Have New Schoolhouse.
The school board of Cornelius
has decided to build a $9000 brick
schoolhouse in the near future,
According to the plan3 which
have been decided upon the edi
hce will be a two-story structure
with basement and will have four
recitation rooms. It will be fit
ted with a modern heating plant
and the rooms will be supplied
with automatic ventilation. The
board has obtained a piece of
property near the encampment
grounds for the new building
which, when completed, will be
the best in the county in the mat
ter of modern conveniences.
There are at present 1C2 children
in the district and the school has
three teachers. The board of di
rectors is composed of Messrs.
M. II. Henderson, James Mor
risey, and C. W. Fitch, the latter
recently moved to Dilley. His
successor will be elected on May
A Trip lo McMinnville and Carlton
Editor Independent: A trip to
McMinnville found the city very
quiet but contemplating building
to some extent this season. They
are still talking "condenser"
with the expectation of 2(KK) cows
support. When enterprise starts
a good payroll you may expect to
see the city move along lively
for it is a pretty place. Autos
are becoming a common venicie,
about 40 are already there, but
the next most important thing is
good roads and smooth ones en
tering the city. At present they
are almost ot the very worst.
They say that when the cream
comes to the factory it is next
thing to butter and ' saves time

On my way back I dropped off
at Carlton. This city is dead for
the present as the mill has been
shut down on account of "suits"
about the water rights, so I am
told. Logs are being cut and I
believe the mill will be running
on full time soon. The fire fiend
seems to be at work there. The

Calling at the Brooks Nursery
I found them busy indeed graft
ing and planting stock of all
kinds. They will plant over one
half millions this season having
added more land for the purpose.
Walnuts have been planted by
the acre on farms near. Brooks
and Sons received while your
correspondent was there a large
shipment direct from Holland of
the genuine "Superlative" rasp
berry, the "star" of all raspber
ries, taking the gold medal at
the Louis and Clarke fair. Hol
land is the country where the
"superlative" raspberry first ori
ginated. As Holland is the gar
den sjot of the old world you
may be sure that the stock is all
that is claimed. $375 was the
cost to get the genuine stock
from that country. Brooks &
Sons spare no expense to be in
the field for first class stock.
The crops of cereals are looking
fine since the last rain anil let
me tell you it was more needed
than one is willing to credit to
our "beautiful Oregon."
Climate for the season is very
late indeed, but Oregon is here
to stay and a failure has never
been known, only a shortage.
Your correspondent came
across a large soft shelled almond
tree in the hills of Yamhill coun
ty, which bears bushels of splen

To Be Tried at Dallas.
Attorneys McCain and Vinton,
who are representing A. J. Hem
bree, who is charged with the
murder of his wife at Sandlake,
made a motion for a change of
venue, claiming that the defend
ant was unable to obtain a fair
trial in Tillamook county. Artl
cles published in the Headlight,
with the fact that a number of
the citizens had signed a protest
againat Governor Giamberlain's
parollintr IlemW 4ftr being
convicted of the murder of his
daughter, were made special
points to show that the eople of
of that county had mad up their
minds in the case and tnat Hem-
bree could not get a far trial.
A change of venue was then
taken to Polk county, a ter Judge
Galloway declined to send the
case to Yamhill count, and now
the Sandlake murderer and rav-
lsher of his own daughter will
again fight for his life in the cir
cuit court which will convene at
Dallas next week.

Jayhawkers ot '49.
The Death Valley Magazine,
which is publishing the life of

sisting of 36 members, organized
at Galesburg, Ills., under the
name ot Jayhawkers, and
started to the gold fields of Cali

last 52 days of the trip, having
abandoned their wagons and
butchered their oxen for food.
There are four survivors, one a
woman aged 94 years, who car
ried a chiid upon her back and

fell dead or went insane ujxrn
All the story will be told for
the first time, the humorous as
well as the pathetic. Publishers
have sought it for 50 years, but

it fit and proper 'to give it to the
