Armed With Inexperience.
When the average youth re
ceives a neatly printed diploma
from his local school he honestly
and candidly believes that he is
better equipped to battle wttli tlie
problems of life than the mem
bers of the school board or any
other venerable and highly re
spected denizen of his home town.
When the same young man re
ceives his L. L. 11. or M. D, from
the State University he is firmly
convinced that opportunity is the
only barrier which might by some
hook or crook prevent him from
attaining first rank among the
ically great men of the country.
l ie then buckles on his armor
of conceit and inexperience and
inarches off to some inland village
to assume the aggressive in the
battle, for wealth and fame. He
. soon learns that the young, men
with diplomas and an unlimited
supply of confidence in themselves
arc numerous, and that the aver
age man doesn't inquire whether
or not he was a member of the
niguia iaia iraiuriiiiy, nui .uu iiiey
often appear to be inlerc'stecOn
. the fact that he has received, a
diploma from some recognized in
stittttion of learning. They ask
him how many years of actual ex
perience he has had in his chosen
ir(mntit fin, I It fun ootnt
to some business or professional
.success in the past, they are in
variably slow to trust him with
any important business transac
Kaittc is a jealous mistress.
Wealth docsu t pursue the aver
age young man at a very rapid
rate. To acquire cither is a slow
process and conies only after
years of patient toil.
Confidence in one's self is
good thing for any young man to
have. Hut there is a difference
between confidence and conceit.
Confidence pushes a man forward
and conceit pulls him backward
The latter is the rock upon which
many a young man has wrecked
the ship of opportunity. As soon
as the graduate learns that he
doesn't know any thing about the
problems of life, he has a chance
of making gootl. The sooner he
is able to forget his college days,
the sooner he will begin to make
progress in mounting the ladder
of wealth and fame.
The Payroll Problem.
Having unlimited confidence in
the possibilities for the future
crowth and development of Al
bany, the local business men pro
pose to exert every effort towards
the establishment of a permanent
Hacked by the largest and most
productive body of agricultural
and timber land in the Willamette
v;illey, and particularly favored as
a railroad center, the business
ti'en believe, and have a right to
I -!icve. that with the establish
ment of one or two large manu
facturing cnterpt ics, Albany will
become one of the largest and
most prosperous cities in the en
tire state.
To induce a large ami substati
tiil manufacturing establishment
to locate a plant, rupiires money
and the burden of raising the
'uu, Is should not be borne by a
'cv of the more generous and
!!ioro proorcssivc cilicn. Kvery
"iv'iner in the city should be
willing to contribute his share
'owanls a greater Albanv and
.should consider it a privilege to
rial.e the contribution.

the more progressive citizens ol

In takiiiL' the initiative in tliii
matter of promoting manufac
luring enterprizes, the Commer
cial Club has proved its useful
ness to the people of Albany and
is entitled to the support and
friendly co-operation of every tax
payer who has the interest of the
city at heart.
Post Office Elections.
In the town of Xeligh, Nebras
ka, the two rival candidates for
the post office bave agreed to sub
mit their case to the patrons of
the office and abide by the result
of the ballots cast at a semi-official
election. The voting will be
conducted under the supervision
of the democratic county central
committee and the loser agrees to
withdraw from the race as soon
as the result of the vote is an
nounced. This plan appears to the Demo
crat to be worthy of careful con
sideration by rival applicants for
postmaster in the various towns
in Oregon. The patrons of the
office, and not a small and select
coterie of politicians, should be
permitted to decide as to the qual
ifications ot the various candi
School Inspection Day.
The Superintendent of Puhlic
Instruction has designated June
16th as the Annual school Mcct-
inc day. On this date all of the
patrons of the various schools in
the state arc expected to visit the
nearest school house, investigate
conditions, suggest improvements
and make some definite plans for
the future..
.The schools of Oregon are no
better or no ' worse than the
schools of other states. There is
always room for improvement and
unless the patrons take the neceS'
sary steps to improve conditions
under which the younger genera
tion, receive their, instruction, no
progress will be made.
Every resident of Linn county
who believes in the proper edu
cation of the young should make
it a point to vis.t the schools on
June loth and make some sugges
tion .which may assist in incrcas
ing the efficiency of the common
schools of Oregon.

Proposed and Club Urged
to Support Movement.
At one of the best attended meet
ings of the Albany Commercial club
held during the past month a large
volume of important, business was
transacted last eevning.
The meeting was called to or"der by
Vice-President F. P. Nutting and af
ter the minutes of the previous meet
ing were read and approved the rout
ine work of the club was disposed of
by the board.
One of the most important matters
under discussion was the construc
tion of a proposed road from Albany
to the'-timber belt.
Manager Stewart read brief extracts
from .three Lebanon newspapers, all
of which agreed that Mr. Andrew Por
ter in his talk at a Lebanon banquet
had said that he would build his road
from Albany through Lebanon to his
timber on the Santiam.
Mr. Hammer brouerht up the matter
of -the improvement of the road from
Uates into the ypartzvtlle mining dis
trict and Mr. Gilbert also urged that
the club should use its influence to
wards getting a new road opened up
near Mr. Vanderpool's in Benton
county. Both matters were referred
to committee on good roads.
Commends Suggestions Con
tained in Recent issue of

Editor .Democrat: s -
We wish to commend you for the
position you have taken in regard to
the court house square.
Would it not be a healthful and a
pleasant place for the many children
of Albany to have their evening play
upon the court house lawn?
Would it not be happiness for the
parents of such children to be there
also, not only to look after their
children but to have a little social
outing after their day's work is done?
Would it not be a better place for
the grown up sous and daughters to
spend their social evenings than it is
to go alone into Bryant's Park, of
loiter on the steel bridge or spend
their evenings at the schoclhouse vc
would it not be an excellent place
for band concerts, social entertain
ments, etc.?
Why go to the mountains or to the
coast when you can have an outing at
Again, would it not be a pleasant
place for the rural people to meet
their friends and have their lunches?
If the court house sauarc belongs to
Linn county, we should not be de
barred from using the same tor pur
poses above mentioned. Away with
the obnoxious explanation, "Keep oft
the grass."
from the standpoint of a large city,
ll"uiv is vet in swaddlint? clothes.
Remember you must have the rural
trade. Remember also that the farm
er has the telephone, the rural deliv
ery, the daily paper, the parcel post
" catalogues trom supply nouses
from all over the Union.
The cognomen "hayseed" need no
lonrer be applied to him. He knows,
as the grange song goes, that "The
farmer feeds them all." Albany should
not forget that the bridge across the
Willamette at Corvallis affords the
people in Orleans precinct a good op
portunity to trade in that city- Leba
non, a tuture rival of Albany, has a
square in which the farmer may
hitch his team. They have their wa
tering troughs ever filed with spark
ling water fresh from the Santiam.
I was told that the city will soon in
stall drinking fountains. All things
being equal, the city or establishment
that merits the farmers' trade will
hereafter receive the bulk of it.
