GROWTH OF CITY
Mrlte-up Containing Well
Known Facta Showing
In Monday s Oregonian the follow
ing terse statement of conditions in
this thriving city and community
Tho general growth of Josephine
county was never better than now;
all of which has been accomplished
by constant united effort and push j
of its citizens. The fruit Industry
oi Rogue River Valley has been
greatly aided by the organization of
the Koguo Hlver Fruit Exchange
with headquarters at this place.
The Exchange is disposing of this
year's crop of apples at top figures
to buyers in Chlcago.New York, Lon
don, Liverpool and Honolulu.
The grading and packing Is boins
done on the most scientific basic.
The manager of the organization
states that it is impossible to supply
the demands for good fruit.
Owing to the increased inteiesl,
the Fruitgrowers' Exchange will
have to erect another vareho.ise
along the side of the preioit struct
ure next year. Many new orchards
will come Into bearing, bringing de
mands for an increase of facilities
for handling fruit. The trees
planted during 1 907 and 190g run
up into several hundred acres.
Tne members of tho Exchange are
also benefited by hearing under its
auspices men of learning and ability
who are brought here to speak upon
the various topics In which grow
ers are Interested.
The windows of the business
houses are filled with liberal dis
plays of choice fruit which has been
placed on exhibition for the purpose
of showing the fruit grown in this
Many new . houses and business
blocks are going up In Grants Pass.
The growth in the country has also
kept pace, particularly in Frultdale
Valley, where the land has been sub
divided Into vineyards and orchards
until the population has lncreassed
from two to three times its former
number All of these newcomers
have built homes of their own.
With the city's growth there
comes a demand for better facilities
to meet the wants of the people and
to provide for this, the Rogue River
Electric & Southern Oregon Com
pany has aBked for a franchise, which
was granted at the last Council
meeting, to construct an electric lino
along F. Btreet and down Sixth street
to connect with Its suburban route
to the Illinois Valley; in order to
hold this frnnch.se tho company
must begin work within nine months
aud on or before 18 months have
completed 10 miles of road outside
of the city limits.
Moving along theso lines of pub
lic transportation there has been a
better tendency ior good roads with
laterals. In order to bring about
the movement In good form a con
vention lor that purpose) will meet
here November 23, when Judge John
11. Scott of Sulem will speak upon
This meeting will be supported by
the business men, who have prom
ised to close tholr places for the
afternoon. This county has In some
Instances the best roads In Southern

One is apt to wonder what kind
ol a pliice Oregon City, up Clacka
mas county Is. An evangelist has
been making his headquarters there
for the past month and during his
stay brought 3-'i persons to the
mourner's bench. The last Issue of
the Knterprlse of that city gives the
following account of his meetings:
Shuiinon bus creuted a fearful stir
during his stay here. Ills biting
tongue has caused hundreds of
people to heap execration upon
him, and ho has spared no creed,
race or color. At every service in
the First Baptist
First Baptist Church, great
crowds have been present and last
Sunday night, which was to have
been the flual metlng the church
was packed to the doors.
The evangelist made vicious at
tacks on the merchants and pro-
( day night
that the lawyers were "warts" and
the merchants were moral leper
who had no use for the people,
aside from the money that came
out of their pockets. Shannon walk
ed up and down the isle and shriek
"The doctors of this city have M
D. after their names,"yelled Shannon
"but they should change it to D. M.
for dammed murders." ,
It was at the business mn lht
Shannon directed hia shafts Sun
day night. His language was cat
c, lated to ahc.ke 'he wlndowi.
The Shannon meetings are racy
in the extreme, iney uuyo even
drawn the people away from the
moving picture shows. He has
gone out of his way to abuse the
members of other churches, and
assailed the Catholics, Congrega
tionallsts and the Episcopalians.
People who follow the cross," he
said, "are good on Sunday though
during the week they drink beer,
play cards and dance.
Shannon has some pet phrases.
The words "hell" and "damn" are
used frequently. The term of
"buld headed sinner" looks good
to Shannon, and he delights In
"sklddo." Last Sunday night he
called Mrs. Eddy, the head of the
Christian Science Church, a gone
goslln. He urged his helpers not to
"lolygag" over a youn-r man in the
audience, who was a possible candi
date for conversion. He roasted
society women to a crisp, and said
some of them had $15 hats on five
"The men of this town," he shout
ed, "have cocoanuts for heads, and
If you should bore a hole In them,
the milk would pour out. Some
of you are going to hell, and I will
be glad to see you Uere."
Shannon said: "When I go to
Heaven I shall say 'How do you do,
Lord. You know I am a friend of
yours, and the Lord will take me
by the hand and say 'Yes, Brother!"
The evangelist raved and tore
about until perspiration streamed
from his pores, and then he prayed:
"Lord, you know I am tired, but you
have been tired yourself. Give me
strength to carry on this work."

ing an ancestor who came over In
that historic Bhip tho Mayflower of

from that time to the present day.
He has many relics of olden times,
among which is Continental money,
paid to his grandfather for services

paper printed at the time of the
death of General Washington. Tne

years, in the practice of his profess
ion as a physician. Horace G.
