8ince the narrow gauge has pass
ed into the hands of the 8. P. It. Ii.
who intend to shorten all un
necessary curves, convert it into a
standard gauge and otherwise im
prove the line, we venture to sug
gest to that company the propriety
of building the line through Leba
non. Several reasons might be
urged in support of this proposition.
Th route through Lebanon seems
the natural, as it is also the short
er route. No one knows better
than railroad men that bridges (es
pecially long ones) are very expen
sive and if insecurely built are
liable to be Bwept away by each
annual freshet. The South San
tiam bridge has twice been carried
away by the tlood and has sub
sequently sustained heavy damages.
Owing to ths low lands in the vi
cinity of the present bridge and the
soft yielding banks of the river at
that point the company must neces
sarily be at . considerable expense
annually, besides a loss of traffic
consequent on such damage. These
leases can be obviated by bridging
the river north of Lebanon. The
riTer at this point is narrow, the
banks are high, and solid masonry,
ready made, is at hand. When the
narrow gauge was built nearly
every town on the proposed route
Teas given the alternative of a bo
nus or death. Lebanon, in com
mon with many other townB, refus
ed to give the xmua and took the
risk of losing the road. Lebanon
has grown steadily despite the im
pending doom? While the road
has many times shown unmistake
ble signs of dissolution. Had the
road been built through our town,
which is the most feasible route, the
narrow gauge would have avoided
several heavy losses, travel would
have Iwn uninterrupted and the
company would have had many
thlsanda of dollars when to-day
nas noining. -
A stranger, who thinks of locat
ing in Lebanon, asked us this week
if the people of this town intended
to cut that ditch which is to afford
water-power for the various manu
factories which are likely to spring
up here. Said he, the water-power
at Albany and Salem is the cause
-qf UlfirI'5' growth of those two
cities. When this ditch is cut Leb
anon wili take a stride forward that
will surprise even the most pro
gressive citizens. Let the work be
done and then we shall escape the
dull monotony of manual processes,
and challenge the maufacturing
world to h. comparison of handi
work. No sooner do our people set on
foot one enterprise, than another is
projected. Now that we are to
have a large paper mill, a fine pub
lic school buildings in addition to
the Academy a machine and re
pairing shop, our enterprising citi
ens begin to cast about for some
new enterprise. About the next
thing will be a water ditch or canal
to furnish power for the numerous
manufacturing industries of this
Do you see anything significant
or suggestive at the head of this
paper? This is no narrow gauge
train. We intend to make our pa
per so interesting that the old will
subscrile fr it, the young will cry
for it and evervlxvlv read it. You

Citizens of Lebanon, if you mean
to vent your patriotism on the
Fourth of July it is none too soon t
begin preparations. Lebanon has
been going abroad to celebrate
long enough; let's kindle a fire of
patriotism at our nation's next an
niversary and send the American
blood coursing through the veins
of every patriot with such rapidit y
that they will see strange sights.
Everybody, even the candidates,
are pleased with the nominations
made last week. Next June one
half the countenances will not be
so radiant nor beautiful.

The political world was shocked
on last Sunday by the announce
ment of the death of Samuel J. Ran
dall. Mr. Randall has enjoyed a
long and brilliant career in Amcri
ican polit ics. He will long occupy
warm place in the heart of every
true American citizen for his manly
strilVand tireless efforts on lehaJf
carts we leave behind is not to
die." Of every really great man it
may be truthfully "said be is more
influentially present' after death
than during life. Shakespeare dead
exerts a greater influence than
Shakespeare li ving, and so of all
others who have wrought upon the
springs of civilization and given the

Funny. The prohibition element is
very angry over the action of our coun

bowl sip their bug-juice with a com
placent smile; and our city dads are
seratcking their heads in a perplexed
way as if they had forgotten some
thing. Perhaps the reason that our
council did not act sooner on that
question was that they were waitiujr
for a learned professor from Europe to
cipher the meaning f the ticket u on
which they were elected. Tiie ticket
rend high 'license, and is in harmony
with the action of the council. Some
people say thxi It was a straight-out
prohibition ticket in other words pro
hibition under false colors. The whole
thing is a ridiculous farce and Urn less
said about it the better. If we elected
a council on a bigh-license it-sue and
expect them to make prohibition laws
we expect them to do something con
trary to the principles upnu which
T hey were elected. If the advocates of
prohibition are afraid to print that
word tu the head of their ticket they
had letter sell cut. We are disguteiJ
with the whole business. Nk.mu.

the grandmother to the baby, the
grandfather to the last new boy, but
be sure to call on Montague ami se
cure what you may require in that
lime. Every pair fully warranted.
Now as to Clething.
When the purse was emptied, as
above succinctly set fortli, Montague
was compelled to open another bar'l
fnr the purpose of securing to our cus
tomer tbe latest novelties in flue suits
as wt 11 as those adapted to evcry-day
wear. We are how opening up our
elegant dtnifrna in Oregoti City Clothing-,
California Cafsiniere. Clothing,
Men's Clothing, Youth's Clothing,
Boys' Clothing, all Imported Uoodw,
elcgant-tittlng garments, at scandal
ously low prices.
Montague has had over forty years
experience in selling good, twenty of
which were spent among you right
here in Lebanon, and he now proposes
to spend the evening of his life in giv
ing to one and all such prices as the
iiotss uranger r Jinu county never
dreamed of. Make Montagu know
you are going to pay cash down and
no gruin tiling (the chronic grumbler Is
a despicable creature), and he will
make prices to jou all right.
MONEY ONCE MORE.
The people who promised to pay up i
by the 1st of last January and failed to
connect may find their accounts where
it will not please them. Montague
docs not propose to waste valuable
time in hutingup these delinquents,
but will send the most forcible collec
tor he can employ to wile the dollars
due me from these much-protniaing
and DBver-pcrforming gentlemen.
