Journal, aud 13 take no local news

known. That ia the cutuiarsiive per
oentaga of circulation. Now let us
look at the couiwrative totals:
In the First ward all three of the
local newspapers have a larger circu
lation than iu any other ward iu
Uranta Pass, while the number ol
(ainiliea taking no newspaper at all
la leaa there tl an in any othr ward.
The Courier ia takeu by l'' fauuliia.

of course, subscribe for more thau oue

Dot of the total of 167 families in

C. tier, while 68 take the Observer

ward thi . orier has clear ma
jority ovc-' - th its competitors of 28
subscribers. o local paper Is being
taken by 27 families. The Fonrtb
ward shows greater comparative
circulation for tie Courier than the
others, the figures being: Cornier,
102; Obierver, 66; Journal, 36; None,
31. This gives the Courier a clear
majority over both its competitors of
Til OH WHO TAKK MO PAI'KHS.
The 104 families of Uranta Pasa who
take no local paper must not be under
stood to le non-readers became of
that fact The vast majority of them
get the local taper through some rela
tive who Bubrcribea. Many yonng
married ccujlcs, or old people
with sous and daughters who
are married, do not take the paper
because I heir immediate relativis get
it and th"y have the benefit of lead
ing it. Iu a few canes newcomers,
who are culy tentatively residents, do
not care to take local paper, end in
still fewer cases fore'guers who can
not read English do not went .one.
There aie very few foreigners In
Uranls Puss, bul those here are of the
educated, higher clasa from the best
countries of En'Ope, and are quite Ibt
equal of their American neighbors in
all the qualities of good citizenship.'
This is an American city, Inhabited
by s virile, vigorous, progrcssivt
clais of Americans.
The column devoted to the "on
known" rt pri seuts 81 families win Be
popnlatfou was enumerated, but
whose tiibirriptiou to the local news
papers could not be ascertained,
This wss not bi cause of their refusal
to give tho information sought, for
this Infc rmiitiou was always cheer
fully funililied by all families, bul
fur the sufllcieut reason that they
were absent usually from the city
when tbe enumerator callid. Iu
such cases the names of the absentees
and tho size of each family were se
cured from neighbors, who, of course,
could not tell what local papers were
being tn ken.
The smallness ot the families Is a
noticeable feature in these census
figures, but when the true status of
Uranls Puss is considered it can
readily be teen that there Is no raoe
suicide iu the metropolis of Southern
Oregou. The school census of IHU
last Kpriug disproves that there are
no children in Uranta Pass. Aud
there, are now more thau 1200 persons,
bttweeu the ages of 4 aud 20 years, In
this city. The apparent small average
number of persons in each family is
due to the fact that Grants Pass is a
new town, aud many of the families
are young couples having no children,
or but oue or two. Grants Puss boiug
the center of a big mining and timber
sectlou has a large floating popula
tluu uf single men, who make this
olty their hi adqunrters.
The couijiarative circulation iu
the valleys aud mining camps of Jose
phine county of the Courier, Observer
and Journal is practically the tame
as iu Uranls Pass. In all commu
nities more copies of the Courier are
ladug takeu than of the other two
combined. The reasons aro obvious.
The liogue Itivcr Courier is a Jose
phine couutry uewspaper, devoted to
the Ineteri sts of Ibis county, the de
velopment of its great resources aud
the upbuilding of all its muteiiul
interests. It has live coricspindt nee
from all parts of the county aud gives
all the news all the lime.
These facts aro a predated by the
people and the Courier's big circula
tion ia the result. This lit wspaper
resell! a the I oines. It is read by the
men and women whom the business
men want lo roach, and who can be
reached only through the columns of
I he Courier. Here iu Grains Pass
two people read it to every one who

people read it to every one reading
the Mining Journal, These facts
oount and give the business man who
advertise, and who wants results,
subject for careful consideration,
oaiwra ia will bomnoid.
The development of Orants Pass is
well proportioned and rounded out.
Its aesthetic bas not been sacrificed
to material interests, but all have
been given attention and in educa
tion, art and mosio its prorgess has
kept pace with its business and indus
trial growth. There has never been
a "boom" here, but year by year
new business and residence buildings
are erected ; year by year the city
expands in size, in population, in
voting strength and in the uumber of
its school children. This growth is
solid and permanent. It is the sort of
growth that counts and that Is (ast
making Ursula Pass the leading,
financial, commercial and industrial
center of Southern Oregon.
REAL ESTATE BUSINESS

Selling at Good Prices
New Settlers Pleased.
While Grants Pass ami the adjacent
section of Rogue River Valley is not

NO COUNTY ROAD TAX
Evades It Through Unconstitu

Infustlce on Farmers.
After a trial for nearly 60 yiais cf
a system of constrnctlon tnat nss in
that period, nvolved the expenditure
ot fully I.1C0.000 aud not givtn to Jo
sephine connty one mile of road that
is capable of standing heavy traffic
during the Winter Jndge J. O. Booth
and Commissioners C. I. Loelace
aud J.T. Logan have decided to aoopt
for this county the system, that bas
been demonstrated in the Eastern
States as the ouly practical method ol
roadwork, aud which ia giving Jack
son, Marion, Clackamas, Multnomah
aud the other progressive connties ol
Oregon, loads that are modltss in
Winter and dustless iu Hummer sud
which will bear up as heavy a freight
wagon in Janoary as in July.
This matter will be taken up foi
dual action at the January term ol
county court and if the progressive
element of Ihe connty ask for it the
strict cash system will be adopted.
This will Involve the employment ol
a road master aud a vrew cf men sud
teams and an equipment of up-to-date
road machinery. It will also involve
a big decrease in the number of snptr
visors, the few that will be rmployed
will ouly have charge of repair work
uuder the direction of the road mas
ter. Under the present system the
supervisors salaries is oue of the big
gest items iu the road expense. Iliis

Under this new system it will be
necessary to put the nails ou perma

to go down hill thereby proving that
the (otbail is uo longer when htrizou

This is accomplish! d through a c ause

unconstitutional for the onstituliou

much a legal part of Ju.cphine county

If such class legislation is legul then
the city could as well have its chatter

Tb prosperity of "Jrants Pass is as
dependent on good roads as is that ol
tbe rural sections of Josephine connty
and the citizens of this city should
pay a road tax the same as other
residents of the couuty.
This injustice is certain not to
stand longer for the county court
proposes to order the sheriff to collect
all the county tax, road included, on
the property within the corporation of
Grants Pass the same as from other
property in the county. Should the
city feol disposed to fight mis tax
an ii junction suit would be necessary
against the county, with the certainty
that both the circuit court and the
tunrtnie court would hold that the
city cau not exempt Itsen iroin pay
ment of any aud all of the county tax.
But there is no liktlihood at all of
the city bringing an injunction suit,
as ti e business men aud others of the
progressive element will not couuten
auce such a suicidal prccetding as this
woul i be, for it would certainly an
(agonize every rainier, miner, mni
