us well as good gardeners is at stake,

of Lebanon, lying uiong the banks of

in the world; the opportunity Is ours.
Will we Dosses It?
If the honorable Mayor goes off to
rusticate In the mountains he must
leave somebody In charge that knows
how to run things, for Lebanon can't
wait, she must drive right along the
nign rcma 01 prosperity ana success.
If your live real estate men would
show memlgrauUand home-seekers our

advertise better and succeed more. In

THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE.
Something About the. Oujaeft of tbl. New
Eiiitok Lkiianon Expkkhh:
As a great many of your readers are
becoming interested III the Alliance
movement, 1 will try III a abort letter
to give you Its objects, alms and some
thing aiiout the condition of the order
in Linn County.
The prime object b to better the con
dition of the farmers of America, men
tally, morally and Hnaucially. It also
aims to suppress pertonal, sectional
and national prejudices, and all un
liealthful rivalry and selfish ambition,
and to bring this abont advocates a re
turn Kiine principles on wnicti this
government woe founded by adhering
to the doctrine of equal rights und
equal chances to all und special privi
leges to none.
The methods employed by this asso
ciation to accomplish their ends ure ol
a social, business and political nature.
The social methods are such us may be
secured by meeting together and be
coming better acquainted with neigh
bors, and a friendly Interchange of
opinions ana laeas as u me practical
management of farm work. The bus
iness methods employed tuko a wide
range und depend In a great meas
ure upon co-operation In both ewunty
and state in etlnrls to secure the high
est prices Tor products, und the lowest
price on the commodities that our
people need. The political methods
are strictly uompurtpan and must ever
remain so, qaevary- uaiidldala tut ad
mission Into the association, before
taking the pledge, Is assured that It
will in no way conlilct with bis politi
cal or religious views. All political
purties are represented In its ruuks,
and every member is expected to lubur
In his respective purty to secure a Just
recognition of me rignis 01 tue larmurs.
All questions of Killtical economy will
be thoroughly discussed, and when the
order agrees on any reform as uecessury ,
thev will deiuuud It of tuegoveruuieul
and of every political purty. Should
the demand tie unheeded, they will
devise uieuus to bring about the needed
legislation. Of cuuino the reforms
wanted will generally come through
legislation, both suite uud nationul, uod
these points will be zealously guarded
by the order. I
xuke the corruptiou uuu exu-ava-gnuceuftlie
last live Legislations in
our own Htute, and 11 Is enough to cause
our farmers to combine for tlieir own
protection. Also when you look ut our
uutlunul laws, enacted duriug the post
twenty years, it is pluiuly tu be seen
that a large majority of them are iu
favor of the capitalist and against tabor.
The farmer uud lueorur are cognizant
of these liicts, uud uenerully as soon as
he learns thut our uiijeut is to remedy
these evils, he unites with us. We
have no tight to make In this county
against the merohuiils of Albany. Our
business ugeut bus been very success-
lul 111 making contracts who uieui,

gather this week.
Farmers have been very busily en
gaged cutting and threshing tlieir
Kruin, We notice some have been so
urrled that six days In the week were
not enough for their work, so they take
the seventh also.
The rains of Monday night and
Tuesday will cause a cessation of the
harvesting work, however, and no
doubt many will put In the time

The school district at this place, No.

there will lie two sohools instead of one.
Whether or not the move has been a
wise one, is one of the questions that
future events must decide. The new

Mr Editor: ""
1 have been a resident of your town
for a short time only, but am wonder
fully impressed with Its magnificent
future. There are possibilities that '
await you that your most sangulhe
people do not raafiee, and the legarthio '
never dreamed of. There is no rcasoU
why there should not be a population "
here of 6,(100 within three years, and If '
your people will pull together in har
mony and concert as they seem to be
doing now, you may have even more '
I have never seen a town with better
surroundings or more favorable loca
tion, and with a country lying East of
It that rs Just in Its babyhood, . .
Every enterprise mast be fostered
and every possible Inducement held
nut for capital to Invest. None ot us, 1
perhaps, fully appreciate the advan
tages of the water ditch, and the many
industries it will bring us, but we mut
not lose sight of other mutters almost
us great lo us. The Sodavllle , Motor
Line will be of vast Importance to us, -and
if we are loyal to our town- and
wine awake lo our interest we will en
couratre I hem bv every possible means
In our power. When Lebanon is placed
In a quick und cheap connection with
this fine watering place, it will eertai n
ly add as much to Lebanon at it Will
to Sodavllle and the advantages , will '
be mutual. Sodavllle i deservedly

Our first great need is a flouring mi.

one-half of this amount hi for frefght. '
In fact the majority of' our eastern
goads could be made here In Lebanon.
We see some of the largest and finest ' '
gardens around Lebanon we have ever
seen. These gardens would run an '
ordinary cannery for 4 inontlis, 'and '
perhaps much of these vegetables will
go to waste for want of a market'
The present Is bright, the future full

reach the much desired end ' without

Work Is still lielng pushed forward
on the ditch as fust as they possibly
can. We were speaking with con
tractor Price the other day and he said
he hud to have more tenths, and if he
fulled to get them here would bring
them from Portland.
