NEW ASSET FOR OREGON
HifH Mountains and Heevy
Oregon has an asset soon lo be
realized npon which did not always
appeal to oar progressive citizt uship,
i. e., high mountains and heavy rain
fall. The age of electrical power is
just dawning. Electrioity will drive
the motar car of commerce, turn the
wheel of manufactures and become
the handmaid of agriculture. All
natural facilities for generating
electricity will be in demand, es
pecially strong streams of water,
where a natoral head may be had for
the power wheel. In this respect
Oregon excels all sister states. Her
mighty uplifls and heavy rains main
tain streams admirably adapted to
power purposes. The rush made
within the past Ave years for power
sites along the most prominent
streams Is bnt a forerunner of what
may be expected in nuother decade,
when electrical generation and trans
mission has been more thoroughly per
fected and power from fuel has be
come an Industrial anchrouism, Ore
gon's superb stream will have a
value not even coucolved now, En
glish progress was vastly quickened
by abounding fuel. That principle
of industry stand today, and injlargor
measure than England was able to
famish power. Oregon is the home
of the now aud much less costly
motive onergy. Portland Journal.

GIVEN DOSE OF "MEDICINE"
Young Man From Albany Has
A few mornings ago a young man
knocked at the door of cue of the
homes iu the south part of towu aud
asked if he might come iu and get
warm. He was barefooted, hatless
and coatlesa, and what cloning he had
was liadly toru. lie was ravenously
munching a raw ear of corn and:
seemed to be nearly famished and in a
state of mental bewilderment.
After he had been iu tho house a
few minutes ho was s.'1.ed with such
a tit of trembling that the lady of "the
home was alarmed for fear lie might
die and she hastened to call iu the
neighbors. Iu auswer to questions the'
Ixiv said his uaiiie was J. Walling and I
that his home was at Altiany. Itelmd :
started south to Jejoln his brother in
California and while he was in Grants'
Pass he was persuaded by some men, 1
with whom he l.ad picked up an ae-1
quaiiitance, to go with them to Takil- j
ma aud try to get work at the smelt.r. j
Thev had gnue out of towu ahout two
wiles and camped at a deserted place
near a farm bouse. He was first sent j
to the house for some milk, then they '
seut hlru !ck for sugar, hut before he
started, on the plea that he looked j
pale, they gave him a dose of "medi-!
cine," a white powder. As he turned!
to go he heard one of the men say,
"Now you'll see him go right up in
the air Iu a uiiuuts. " llefore he
leached the house he became crated. !
threw off his coat aud hat and started
for the. wood where he wandered
aUmt all night.

policy of the state to maintain the

with shade trees is now alive with
busy, ambitious happy young people
who have come from various part of
the state, from Washington aud from
The course of study is so arranged
as to qualify teachers for the public

The faculty is composed of eleven
men and women, who are specialists
in their respective lines of work.
The dormitory life Is wholesome and
many of the btst students live at the

THE DIRECT PRIMARY LAW

In effect, Mr. Crawford does not

He says also that previous, laws
governing primary elections have

candidates for municipal offices may
be nominated by any method that ha
been pursued in the past.
lie believes it will be best to pro
ceed in accordance with tho laws last
in force, not that those laws are now
binding, bat because they provide a
good system of making nominations

them. Mr. Crawford believes that
any form of nomination which results
in a free expression from the voters
at the poll wijl be upheld a legal
Attorney-General Crawford believe
that iu municipal election prior to
100ft, candidates should be nominated
and city elections conducted as they
have been in the patt. Since the
system of choosing party candidates
and party managers by direct vote
does not take eflect until IDOfl, it fol

party organizations are entitled to
use the party names as they have in
When the ucw law becomes opera
tive only those candidates nominated
in the direct primary will be entitled
to use the party name.
United States Senator Fnlton ex
pressed tho opinion -that Oregon's di
rect primary law is unconstitutional
"That provisiou which requires
voters In announce . their political
faith alone is sufficient to reuder the
law unconstitutional," declared
Senator Fnlton. "The Constitution
of the Uuited States provides the
qualifications of the voter, aud the
state legislature cannot add to not
take from the qualifications stipnlated
by the National Constitntion, uor
impose auy additional couditiou to
the right to vote.
"Perhaps, in othor respects also,
the direct primary law is at variance
with the Constitntion, but iu requir
ing voters to register their political
faith it Is certainly unconstitutional
I regard it as a most unfortunate
measure, aud am satisfied J could
beat it in the Supreme Court." i
IN THE GALICE DISTRICT
Work Is Being Steadily Prose
cuted on All Properties.
Activity is increasing iu the
Qalice mining district and work is
being undertaken that displays great
oonHdence ou the part of those in
terested. Now grounds are being
worked and machinery and buildings
are steadily being added to the camps
there. This in short, says the Tele
gram, is the substance of the report
brought out by A. 13. Cousin, of the
Us lice Consolidated Mining Com

day night after a long stay at his
claims, which, it might be said, cover
a distance of over five miles. Mr.
Consin will remain in Portland for a

"We are working 700 acres and
half a dozen giants," sad Mr.
Consin, "and have opened np some

IS ALL RIGHT
Eight Pianos Sold Here So
Far and Plenty of Sales
It ia safo to say that no towu in
Oregon, of the size of Grants Pase
has a more discriminating purchasing
public when lower grades of pianos
are considered, uor a more ap
preciative people when the high
grades ire offered.
Wo have aimed steadily ut selling
our best pianos and iu no instance yet
have we been asked to order one of
the cheaper grades. Iu fact our best
grades are so highly appreciated that
we are not going to make any effort
to sell cheaper ones.
We do sell them sometimes. Any
first class firm is compelled to have
something very cheap for canes where
such is demanded aud insisted upon.
Bnt how much better for the pur
chaser it is to spend (TiO or f 100 more
while at it and get a good one.
We do not claim tu have the best
pianos in the world to the exclusion
of other firms, bnt we do justly claim
that we push our best grades harder
aud cheaper prudes less than nny
other firm in Oregon. And it costs
more to Bell high triced pianos, they
cost more, expense is more aud
profits are lees. But that is how we
are making our great reputation and
establishing au increasing business
with the very best clas of peoplo ou
