Welcome Oregon Electric.
Never before in the history of
Albany have the citizens had a
better opportunity of advertising
the Hub City than through the
proposed 1 Jregon Klectric cele
bration on July 4th.
The formal entry of a great
railroad, giving the people of this
particular section of the state the
advantages of competitive railroad
rales, increased transportation fa
cilities and a larger payroll, is
certainly an cent which marks
an era iii the growth and develop
ment of the Willamette Valley.
It is therefore both fitting and
proper that extensive preparations
should be made for the reception
of the visitors. No stone should
be left unturned in extending a
royal welcome. No effort should
be spared in making the celebra
tion an event long to be remem
bered by the officials of the new
railroad' as well as by the resi
dents of Albany.
A Grand Junction clergyman
has no particular use for bachelors
and bachelor-maids, claiming that
they are a menace to society and
a thorn in the side of civilization,
j'le is not content, however, with
condemning the life of a single
man or woman but would send
them, one and all, to some isolat
The Grand Junction pastor
might do well to remember that
we are not always the architects
of our own fortunes; that there
are thousands of eligible young
women who have never had the
blessed opportunity of saying
"yes," and thousands of excellent
young bachelors whose income is
not sufficient to .support a wife
decently. Vet the poor, the lame,
the hall and the blind are advised
to enter the slate of matrimony,
even though it may mean pov
erty, distress and unhappiuess.

next train for Grand Junctio:..
For nearly half a century this
publication has been conducted as
a democratic newspaper and the
new management knows of no
good reason for changing the pol

It is 'not our purpose to convert
the Democrat into a political or
gan, but we reserve the right to
discuss public men and measures
fully and freely in the editorial
columns of the paper.
In our humble judgment the
democratic party comes nearer
being right on public questions
than any other political organiza
tion, but parties, like men, have
their imperfections. It has been
our observation that no parly has
a monopoly on the brains and vir
tue of the nation, and the man
who makes such a claim brands
himself as an egotist and a fool.

The writer is not familiar with
local conditions and consequently
is unable to discuss intelligently,
the advisability of raising a cash
bonus for the Salem company.
It occurs to us, however, that
the location of new manufacturing
establishments is a question of
vital importance to the commer
cial development of the city.
With two competing railroads and
an open river to Portland, no city
in the Willamette Valley offers
better inducements for the man
ufacturer. A lai'Kcr payroll means
a larger city and a more prosper-;
oils community. The interests of j
the manufacturer and the citizens
of Albany are therefore mutual,!
and as soon as this fact is brought I
home to the former, there should
be but little trouble in striking

republican politician in Iowa
whose political existence has for
years depended upon the aid and
succor he received from the Iosva

friends he would have been de
feated for the office of Governor
by Geo. D. I'erkrns. Without a
goodly number of democratic
votes he would have been badly
defeated in the race for the sen

himself more in harmony with the
views of the democratic members
of congress than with those of his
republican colleagues. The best

from G. R. Whitlois and Mittic 15.
Whitlois in July, 1908, he paid for
135 acres, trading in a 20-acre farm
near Millers for $1600, and paying the
balance in cash at $65 an acre, making
the total price paid $8775. However,
since havfng the property surveyed he
