A E. VOOBH1E8,
En lured at the pout odice at Grants i'aita
Oregon, a second-clans mail matter.
FRIDAY. JUKE 19 , 1D08.
The Markbt Day idea seems to gain
in popularity and has been adopted as
a permanent institution in a number
of towns throughout Oregon. At
Lh Urando, according to the Observer,
of tliHt place.it lias proven a great suc
cess. Eogene lias also adopted the
idea, while Tillninook held its first
Market Day last Saturday. As sug
gested in these columns a few weeks
ago, this Market Day oommenja it
ai If to the consideration of tiie busi
ness men of Grants Pass, as tbe bene
fits to be derived are unlimited. Tbe
general plan is to set apart one or two
Saturdays of each month when all
farmers and others who may have
fur 111 produce, implements, horses,
cattle or any live stock, may bring
them to Grants Pass and dispose of
them at either private or public sale.
An auctioneer should be furnished by
the city or merchants; the band
should Iw out during tbe afternoon,
and every merchant should be a coin
mlttee of one to make it pleasant for
the country folks on this Market Day.
Each merchant should also offer some
line of his gocd at a bargain figure.
It is bound to bring; a lot of people
to town who otherwise would go
oIhh where to trade, and at the same
tiiun engender a more friendly feel
log among all the people. Grants
Pass can scarcely afford to pass this
Maiket Day plan up. The Commer
oial Clob should be the proper body
to take the matter op.
Tbe easterner, especially if be be
from a flat country like Kauras, Ns
bratka, or Iowa, is at once greatly lui
pressed with the multitude of autoruo
biles nsed in the Rogue River Valley.
DrHplte that we are nestled here in
portion of the beautiful Oasoades
automobiles are more numerous than
sections of the states above mentioned
and more and 'ouger trips are made
than In those countries. Indeed there
are few days when an auto party en
route from Portland to somewhere
down in California does not stop here
in Grants Pass. Distances or the
mountains have no terrors for tbe
Oregosj antoniobilist, and tbe aoenlu
grandenr of the beautiful valley ren
der the trip a thousand times more
enjoyable than if made on the train.
An occasional mishap only adds flavor
to the Journey. Verily the Rogos
River Valley will within a few years
have more automobiles thau some
othtr whole states.
Chicago has I wen the warmest city
in the country for the past 10 days,
politically, if not from the mercurial
standpoint, all because of the national
republlcau convention which convened
there Tuesday. Not. in many years,
has there been manifested such wide
spread interest in the outcome of the
national oouveutlou of auy political
party. Hvsidea the regular delegates
the convention has beeu very largely
attended and It is doubtful if so
many eminent statesmen and politi
cians have bevn assembled in the
"Windy City" at any one time before.
Tbe Rose and Flower show next
Friday will bring a large crowd to
town and engender greater enthusiasm
in our.olty. Let every body boost.

Victory In Oregon
Dryer then Two Years Ago.
The Register's prophecy, that Lane
connty could go dryer than it did two
years ago, proved to be correct. The
result is a most deoisive one. Two
years ago the dry majority was 228.
This year It will reach 706. Eogene

270 for prohibition. Eugene Register
Crime Has Decreased.
The vote of Curry County on Pro
hibition shows that having had two
years of no saloons, tbe people wete
satisifed that it was a good thing and
many voters who voted wet, two
years ago, .voted dry thisrear because
they have seen that crime has de
creased, that expenses are diminishsd,
that rowdyism is a whiskey evil,
and that many a man is pract ically
reformed of drunkenness, and his
family is happier and more comfort
able. The vote of Currv County
honors her throughout tbe state, and
she will never be classed as a saloon
county again. Port Orford Tribune.
Work Not Yet Done.
The victory won by the temperance
forces In Oregon at the election June
1, was little short of wonderful, bat
the work is not yet done. It will re
quire untiring vigilenoe and energy
on tbe part of the officials to prevent
the sale of liquor in the "dry"
counties. The majority of the voters
have expressed tlieussevles as being
in favor of the prohibitory law and
it is the doty of every citizen to do
his part to see tbat law is enforced.
If, at tbe end of two years, it is
found that it has been unprofitable,
either from a moral or economic
standpoint, there will be an oppor
tunity for a change. Canoyuv ills
Thirsty Trip On Trains.
Tbe time between drinks under the

tbe tourist 00 the Southern Pacific

California be must appease bis thirst
entirely with Ice water until tbe train
enters Marion oounty, and then he
cau drink as much as he desires and
the capacity of his ptire will permit
until he reaches Portland, inasmuch
as Marion 'and Clackamas counties
votd to continue the saloons. Jack-

river this soring tbat there were no
fish running and it has been discovered
recently that many of the salmon have
been going up the unscreened itriga

in response to advice to this affect,
ordered every irrigating ditch along

screened at once. There is no doubt
but that a great number of fish are
running up these unscreened ditches
