Itntn The Fraternal Brotherhood Ilillsboro Lorip No. 21 s Meet every Saturday niaht, Wehrung'i Hall, 8 o'cloek All members are rciiueotod to be preecnt ELECTRIC EXTENSIONS ALL OVER THE VALLEY. The Oreaon Electric Company at Work at Reedvllle, Beaverton and Carden Home. Portland, April 27. -No nouncement made in years been more interesting to an has the state at large than the publica- 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 pal towns of the entire Willam ette valley, with an extension to the coast as well. McMinnville, Newberg, Dallas, Eugene, Al bany, Cascadia, Ilillsboro and Tillamook, with innumerable oth er communities,, are included 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 ately begin the permanent im provement of her main streets, hen the committee representing the Albany Commercial Club com pleted arrangements with Bury Dasent to take charge of the city's publicity work as manager of the club, May 1st Mr. Da sent is now advertising manager of the Portland Railway, Light & Power Company, secretary of the Rose Festival Association, and secretary of the Pacific Coast Advertising Men's Association, and his experience will make his work effective. The greatest success has at tended the Oregon Development League meetings throughout the eastern part of the state. La- Grande raised $3300 in a few minutes, besides adding greatly to the membership of its Com mercial Club. They will com plete a fund of $0000. Elgin business men subscribed $600 to advertise their city; The Dalles will continue their publicity work on an even more liberal scale man neretoiore; uaker Uity is alive to the value of similar work. Headquarters of the Rose Fes i 1 111 a uvai Association iook like an im mense Valentine Shop now-a days, lhousands of beautifully engraved invitations are being sent out in rose-garlanded envel opes-prose poems in accord with the occasion. "The oueen of owers will have a perfumed hisper of welcome for you, and her sweet hospitalities humored for your tarrying" closes the message. The scope of the excursion par ty which will visit Lewiston- Clarkston on May 1st has been widened to include various Ore gon cities. President J. H. Al bert, of the Capital National Dank at Salem, President E. W. Langdon, of the Albany Commer cial Club, and President George H. George of the Astoria Nation al Bank, will be of the purty. A ladies' auxiliary will provide for the special entertainment of the feminine visitors. Even-one needs new belts and neckwear this time of the Year. and it will be to your advantage to look over my line in these ar tides before you make your se lection. Mrs. I. Bath. 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 4. 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 for the machines, gilt edge no doubt. 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 fine hotel gone and two buildings in the centre of the city lately They have a splendid school building which shows the result of enterprise. 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 did fruit. Our hills in Washing ton county will do the same all that is lacking is the planting of the trees. Alrert O. Yates. Webb & Hoover have in stock the "Gilsonite Rubber Paint" for roofs of all kinds iron, tin, felt, paper or wood. Also the Oregon Wood Distilling Co.'s shingle stain oil. Linseed oil, raw and boiled, and castor ma chine oil. Persons wishing cards with the 1 . a new spit ordinance printed on them, can get the same at this office at 5c each. DELEGATES .

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.

At the last meeting of Ilills boro Grange No. 73, P. of H., the following referendum and in itiative questions to be voted up on at the June election were dis cussed: For an amendment of Sec. 29, Art 4 of the Constitution, chang ing tne compensation ot mem bers of the legislature from $3 to $10 per day, the grange voted "no." 'For an amendment of Sec. 3, Art 19 of the Constitution, to permit the location of state insti tutions elsewhere than at the seat of government, the grange voted "yes." An act to appropriate $25,000 annually for four years, to be used in purchasing grounds and building armories for the Oregon National Guard, was opposed by the Grange. For equal suffrage constitu tional amendment permitting wo men to vote on equal terms with men. the grange voted "yes." At an open meeting of the Grange Saturday afternoon, May 9, from 2 o'clock to 3 o'clock, the public is invited to discuss the remaining initiative and referen dum questions now before the people. Vole No. The temperance and moral ele ment of Oregon have been suc cessful in bringing law enforce ment and order to a great degree to every county in the state of Oregon. This is not overly pleas ing or profitable to the element that profits by the foolishness of men, hence the scheme, originat ing in the fertile mind of a south ern Oregon beer guzzler backed by the saloon interests to pass a aw to allow towns and cities the right to regulate the saloon busi ness, gambling, etc., within their corporate limits regardless of ex isting state laws. Of course the voters of Oregon will be too wide awake to permit a thine: of that kind, nevertheless it will not do any harm for temperance people everywhere to call attention to this particular amendment, with instructions to vote no. Mc Minnville Telephone-Register. We are sorry to learn that Ion. W. K. Newell was defeated for the nomination for represen tative to the legislature in Wash ington county. Mr. Newell is one of the progressive horticul- turalists of the valley and he made a good, clean record last session a little too clean in fact to suit the saloon men and gam blers, and he was marked for de- eat He is not the type of a man the fraternity want to be represented by at Salem.

The Death Valley Magazine, which is publishing the life of Death Valley Scotty, will begin the story of the ' 'Jayhawkers of '49" in its May number. The "Jayhawkers" discovered and gave Death Valley its name. The story will be written by John B. Colton, one of the survivors, who is now 75 years of age. He was the youngest member of the party, being 16 years old at the time. April 5, 1849, the party, con sisting of 36 members, organized at Galesburg, Ills., under the name ot Jayhawkers, and started to the gold fields of Cali fornia. They were on foot the 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 keot in line while strong men fell dead or went insane ujxrn the trail. 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 the survivers have now deemed it fit and proper 'to give it to the Death Valley Magazine. No pioneer or lover of Ameri can history can afford to miss it.
