The Allliance which meets at Beio
next Tuesday and Wednesday will
have some important work to do. Now
that the Amendment campaign has
opened, it will be well to arrange for
the great work which is to le done be
tween now and the 8th of November.
It is to be hoped the different temper
ance organ izat ions throughout t he cou n
t y, as well as all other bodies entitled
to send delegates will be representated.
Iet there be a full, and enthusastic re
presentation which will tend to show
the opponents of human liberty, that
the good work is to be pushed to the
entire abolition of tbe whisky trattlc.
The temperance people of Oregon
will do well to consider the influence
the whisky dealers are using against
the success of prohibition wherever and
whenever brought to Issue with it. In
Texas they sought to combine the politi
cal party in the majority in their in
terest; in Iowa, Rev. Haddock was the
victim of their hate; in Michigan pro
liibition undoubtedly carried, but was
counted out by them. In consideration
of these things, the question certainly
very naturally arises: AY hat of Ore
gon? First, in our mind, is organization.
It there le an Amendment League
instituted in every precinct throughout
every county in thestateand put under
the management of enthusiastic men
and women, who will work for success
in November. Second, let all per
sons In sympathy with the Amendment
meet with the different organizations
and with their presence and voioe make
these meetings interesting. This is a
campaign, the issues of which are of
more vital importance than any one in
which the people of Oregon have as yet
been interested. It is for the over
throw of the greatest curse known to
the human family. It is for the pro
tection and advancement of every thing
that Is good, against the demoralizing
influences of liquor in all its ghastly
forms. It is for the preservation of the
church and every institution which has
for its object the elevation of mankind,
against the misery which follows in
the wake of the rum power.
Iet all who attend the Alliaueeat Scio
next week, go there with arguments
and practical suggestions for carrying
on a vigorous and successful campaign
agaiiftt rum power in Oregon, and it
will be a meeting fraught with noble
Judge R. E. Bylee, of Portland, pub
lishes a letter in which he charges the
officers in charge of the work at the
Cascades locks with being in collusion
with rail road managers in delaying the
important improvements at that point.
He says that $ 1,000,000 has been spent
on the work, for which there is
anything to show, and adds that one of
me most successful contractors in the
state oners to contract to finish the locks
now for SoOO.OOO, and would have con
tracted for the whole work for $600,000
at its commencement.
The Northern Pacific is experiment
ing with steam heating appliances for
passenger cars. Upon the St. Paul and
Duluth trains the coaches are heated by
radiators, two, being at each end of the
ear, and by pipes enclosed in metal box
es running through the ears, the heat
lKM'ngeontrolled by register. The steam
is supplied direct from the locomotive
boiler, but in large trains or extreme
weather the plan contemplates the use
of a special boiler or iron car. If this
system proves successful it will be used
on all Northern Pacific trains next win
ter. In response to the general demand,
the interstate commerce commission
has suspended, subject to revocation, for
a period of seventy-five days, the fourth
or long haul section of the law. It is
thought that during the seventy-five
days vf the suspension most of the wool
of Oregon and Washington can be ship
ped to an eastern market. The im
pression prevails in Portland that a
rate of $1.50 per hundred on wool to
Boston will be named.
TO BE REBUILT.
From the Orejonicin of the 13th we
learn that the contracts for a mill for
the Columbia River Paper Company,
to replace the one burned on the 6th of
last November at L.a Camas, were yes
terday signed by J. K. Gill, president.,
and S. Ii win, secretary of the company.
The brrck work was awarded to Ca
nute & Zanelle for S3,oC9, and the stone
work at $4,000. The carpenter work,
tioor,trusses for roof, windows, etc., was
awarded to Messrs. S. J. Kgbert, L.
Tidland andThos. TeesonofLaCamas,
for f 4,400. The roof of corrugated iron
containing about 230 squares, was
awarded to J. C. liyer for S1,6S5. The
building is to he completed bvJulyl,
and it is hoped that the manufacture
of paper will be bugun bv August 1.
The machine room will be 56x156, and
the bleaching rooms and wood pulp
mill 80x132. with two 12-foot stories.
The walls and floor of the lower story
will be of stone, and the upper story of
"brick. As only the upper floor and
.roof trusses will te of wood, the build
ing will be nearly as possible fire proof,
and there will be no dry stock kept in
it. The building for rag picking and
cutting, 30x60 feet, is of wood, and is
situated 50 feet from the main.building.
The bleaching and washing of straw
will be done in a separate building
forty feet from the main building.
The mill will be fitted with the latest
and most approved style of cement
chloride vats and draining rooms, a
hydraulic elevator and all necessary
labor saving appliances, and will be
equipped with an 84-inch Fourdrinier
machine, a 54-inch double cylinder,
and four wood pulp machines. In ad
dition to other precautions against fire
perforated pipes will 1k stretched over
each of the roof trusses, which bv

It pays to manure the cabbage land

for dampness. If the floor of the poul

for croup. Board it over and cover it
with dirt and ashes. Keep an eye on

Road work should be done in spring,
the earlier the better. Soft earth will

autumn it will become mud after every

The proper covering of seed, after
they have teen deitnsi ted in the drill
or row, has much to do with the suc
cess of the crop. If in covering, the
seeds are buried so deep that t he germ,
the little plant within the seed, cannot
reach the surface, it dies. Though the
seed may have been perfeetley good,
there will be no crop.
In sowinsr mixed grasses for hav ref
erence must lie had to their periods of
ripening; they must be ready for the
mower at the same time. Red clover
and orchard grass do well together in
this respect, lull meadow oat grass
also ripens at the same time as the
above, and may be advantasreously ad
ded to them.
If we were setting a large patch of
strawberries, we would set them In
rows three feet apart each w ay, and
tend them the first season with a horse

a great many plants and any amount of

Much depends upon the suitable

Hig-h License Illustrated.
Dr. Howard Crosby in making a plea
for high license, used the illustration:
"If I live in a city where a tiger is at
large, and it is not possible to bring the
tiger down, and is possible to confine
him to one-half the city, then I believe
in saving as much as possible of thecitv
from him." Unfortunately for tlie
Doctor, this is one of the parables that
cannot he made to "go on all fours,"
nor even stand on its legs at all. The
principal fault with, the illustration is
that the high license scheme does not
confine tlie whisky tiger to any particu
lar part of the city, but allows it the
freedom of the whole city. It would
be more nearly parallel to'put it in this
May: A tiger is at large in the city,
and instead of making short work with
with it, and exterminating it, an enter
prising showman says to the city au
thorities, "Gentlemen, I will give you
$.300 for the privilege of letting that
beast run at large in your city, and live
on your wives and children for the next
twelve months." Would the city au
thorities lx warranted in issuing the li
cense, even for So.OOO license fee? The
true parallel of the tiger business with
the high license business is this: Home
evil disposed person has turned 100 or
1,000 tigers loose in the city. The citi
zens are getting together to extermin
ate the whole lot, when several persons
say, we wiJl pay into the city treasury
SoOO apiece for the privilege of letting
50 or 500, as the case may lie, of these
tigers run at large in the city and de
vour our boys and girls." Where are
the city officials who would listen to
such a proposition? Yet that is precis
ely what is asked by those who are
willing to sell liquor to destroy both
body and soul of our children, and
break up our homes, and bring the gray
hairs of parents in sorrow to the grave.
Brother Crosby may be a good moderate-drinking
and high license temper
ance man, yet we feel safe in saying
that when he turned his tiger loose, he
certainly stirred up the wrong animal.
