The presidential campaign is so
qoiet in Oregon that it is hard to
realize that a presidential election is
to be hold in less than foot week.
Oregon is so hopolealy republican
that neither party deems it worth
' while (o spend good campaign money
in sending political spellbinders to
Oar citizen mast not furgot the
coming city eleotion and moat further
recollect the noeeuity of registering
daring the present month. Though
city politics are quiet now, there is
a possibility that there may be an
awakoning nearer election time. Few
TOtcrs have yet registered and pioba
bly many rotors will neglect this
duty to their Inter sorrow and rela
tion. Tom Watson, the presidential nomi
nee of the populists, is bosy making
speeches. He is not merciful in hi
arraignment of either of the old par
ties and JndKe Parkor is to him
favorite object of attack. Thi mani
fest partiality on the part of Watson
has caused him to be accused of being
in the pay of the republican. Wat
son strenuously denies auy such posi
tion on Ills part
Late war news Indicate that Knro
patkln'i army has assumed the ag
groaiive and seems to have been sno
cesaful iu the first movements. The
Japanese have made a sllgli retro
grade movement, probably for
strateglo reasons. The opinion is
quite widoly hold that the czar has
peremptorily ordortd Kuropatkin to
retake Liao Yang. A dooltive battle
will probably occur immediately.

Mr. Plummer was greatly affected by
the girl's action and her attention

"The American people have reason tc.
appreciate the fact that the good roads
quextlou appears at last to be taking
on a thoroughly practical aspect, with
promise of great benefit to every per
son living in this country," said au offi
cial of the department of agriculture
to a representative of the Washington
"Every foreigner coming to this coun
try is amazed on the oue baud at our
general progresnlvenens and enterprise
uud utterly disgusted on the other
baud nt our almost totul lack of good
roads nnd our almost utter want of ap
preciation of the advantages of prop
erly Improved highways. As a result
of this our deplorable roads have ut
taineU a worldwide renown, which
greatly detracts from our reputation of
being tin exceptionally enlightened und
"The willing submission of the Amer
ican people to the neeillesg nnd burden
some condition of our country roads Is
a remarkable circumstance. Cnrefu!
study of this matter seems to indicate
that this Is wholly due to luck of
knowledge und appreciation of the
comparative benefits of improved road
ways over hud ones nnd the ease nnd
low cost by which the beat of roads
niny be secured.
"It Is wholly Inconsistent with the
characteristic enterprise of Americans
that they should willingly submit to
the continuous and needless losses due
to hick of good roads, especi.illy when
these losses lire so great In a few years
lis to equal the cost of building the
fiiiest roads in the world throughout
the entire country. This remarkable
fact call only be accounted for ns tin
result of our ' deplorable Ignorance of
the comparative economies, comfort
and pleasures of good und had ronds.
"It Is conservatively estimated by
government ollieials tin. t we are need
lessly losing or wasting over JdOO.OOO,.
000 each year because of our bad
roads, making n mud tax of over
000. 000 for every woikitig day In tilt
year nnd an Individual lax of nearly
$9 each year for every person In this
"This estiiuale Is for the direct mon
ey loss and takes no account of the In
cldentnl disadvantages, discoui forts
nnd inconveniences of bad roads,
which would probably exceed the di
rect moneyed loss. Besides this, the
Increased values of farms reached by
good roads would n mount to un enor
mous sum. In New York and other
states tills Increase In selling values
has equaled from $-o to $100 au acre
In many cases.
"An Increase of only $8 an acre on
the estimate of (Vlo.Ono.OoO acres for
the country would amount to some
thing like $j,ooo,0(i0,u00, or more than
enough to build the best and finest
main ronds In the world about 1,000,
000 miles throughout the entire coun
try several times over, and by recently
developed methods In road building the
best roads can be built for a coat which
liould not exceed an average of $2,000
a mile. The Interest on this sum of
1. -..PU 1,000,000 nt 4 per cent would buljd
all the mainly traveled roads In the
country lu less than ten years nt a cost
of only 40 per cent of the increased
"l'rom this It appears that we would
receive benefits from Improving our
main roads In the Increase of farm val
ues alone equal to two and one-half
fold, or 250 per cent of their cost.
"A direct saving of $i!00,000,000 a
year, figured at 4 per cent Interest,
would carry n cost of $1,300,000,000.
This Is over six times, or 600 per cent,
of the necessary costs of the main
ronds for the entire country. .
"If the Indirect comforts, benefits
and savings will equal the direct sav
ing wo will have another Item of $000,
OOn.isjo. This makes the total benefits
from good main roads equal to some
thing like f IO.(XW,000,000, or fifteen
times their cost. The Interest from
this sum nt 7 per cent would pay the
cost of building the finest and best
main roods In the world throughout
the entire country each and every year.
"These benefits are so enormous that
It Is difficult to rightly comprehend
them without mnklng some compari
