If the referendum law is applied

sition will be the big event of Ore
yon's history for many years to
come, and it will build up and ad
vertise the resources of the state as
nothing else could. It will have to
be, a co-operative business invest
ment for the citizens of Oregon. mid
Is something that every man, wom
an and child enn help along.
There is a bunch of soreheads in
most of the smaller towns who think
that the exposition is a graft fee
the sole benefit of Portland. They
do not stop to consider that Port
land is the logical place for an event
of this kind. It is our mctropolkf
and is the terminus of four trans
continental railroad lines, to sa

vantages offered by the Columbia
The only objection we can see in
the whole affair is the site chosen.
On a hot summer day in x
the cast wind blows, the exposition
will get the full benefit of the ma
larial, sewage-laden air from
flock's bottom and the Willamette
nvcrj which will contain all the
drainage of Portland and her 125,
000 people at this point. A north
wind will bring in the perfumed nit
from the city crematory, the manure-covered
Chinese gardens, and
the horse cannery, while the south
and west winds will carry all the
sounds nnd smells of a great city.
We trust that the crematories,
glue factories, etc., will be closed
down during President Roosevelt's
visit to the fair grounds.

the uttermost heads of the river, as
the falls above here are simply a
series of cascades which could eas
ily be surmounted by the fish. This
would open the finest atronui on the
coast to the salmon, and although
it may be a menace to the trout, it
will more than compensate by add
ing iiuothcr breading ground to the
great salmon industry of the state.

The matter of civic improvement

It seems strange that a newspaper
of such undoubted high standing
and reputation as the Oregoniun
would allow its editorial columns to

ticle on the descendants of Alexan
der Hamilton which appeared in the
issue of March 28th. ' It is just
such needlessly published talas as
this which cause people to doubt
, that our great men were great. Ifc
it not much better to have the young
and growing generation read of the
good men brought to their
country than to hear of some half
cooked tale of intrigue and wrong
doing in which they were involved?
The Oregoniau has a great influence
over the thought uud opinion of the
people of the Northwest, and instead
of disseminating tides of this nature
it had better return to its good hab
its of forceful editorials upon cur
rent events and public needs.
We would call the attention of
the state fisheries commission, or
whoever has charge of such mat
ters,, to the condition of the Des
chutes river, as far as the propaga
tion of salmon is concerned. Dur
ing the season great quantities of
salmon run up the river and all its
branches, but they are stopped
nbout thirty miles' below Bend by a
thirty-footfall. The state should

Kcnd will grow up in the virgin
forest, and it would be a fine thing
to pick upon a suitable location
kioiit now for a permanent public
park, so that when we grow up and
become a large-sized spot on the
map we can invite distinguished
visitors to our beautiful little city
nd pointy with pride tOjOurpnrk
system anu streets.
We can take Portland ns n good
example of a very batlly planned
town. The city authorities there
have about twice as many streets to
look after ns there should be for
general convenience and comfprt.
The streets arc very narrow, and so
many more than necessary that
there is not money enough to kep
them clean and in repair. The few
main streets which are supposed to
be good arc a disgrace to the town,
but they nrc all omuch better than
the side streets that the Portlanders
do not complain.
Now is the time for the Haulers
to get in nnd pick out the pnrk site.
We don't need it now, because the,
country is all park; Jjut in a few
years from now we in our old age
will be very thankful that we had
foresight enough to plan a pleasant
place in which to spend a Sunday
afternoon with our grandchildren,

That was a brilliant stroke of di
plomacy on the part of the citizens
of Prineville iu getting the city
limits ou the west reduced so ns to
exclude the New Crooked river
bridge. The last legislature passed
the act upon fietition of the citizens
of our county scat. The drinks are
on us. l lie county will rebuild the
bridge. There is one feature, just
as expensive, though, that they al
together overlooked, and that is,
they forgot to contract their area so
as to exclude the other bridge.
That one was an old bridge iu the
early eighties, and has been patched
arid re-patched until it is liable to
The board of engineers has de

ing a canal at IMvemile rapids on

It declares for a canal between Five

board has raided the estimates above
the limit fixed by cougreM, and
there is a question whether the war

Forrest was sited iu .his rwrlor
reading, he vaf arousod by a gun

dwelling. His hospitable nature
immediately asserted itself, so lie
opened the door uud prepared to
welcome his guot. You can imag
ine his Mir prise uud consternation
upon finding the bridge lately ucrom
New Crooked river at Prineville
neatly stacked up ou his front porch.
One of the trus rods, which had
cmue loose, was knocking ut the
door. The county can recover each
individual section of the bridge by
sending to Forrest's after the same
uud paying all costs.
We understand Jjmt the Crook
county irrigation convention will in
vestigate the cause of the flood; why
the government allowed all that wa
ter to be scattered about Prineville,
and why the bridge, washed away;
and will recommend that the gov

part of the heavens which immed
