Rider Wayoack Heard From A(alo,
Mr, Editoe:-I wtiz thlnkln that
Lebanon wuz havln hard enurf times,
what with populists, maccabees, and
revivals, and that air Cal Jewpepper,
but here comes "Jerry Jim Jams," and
turns loose like plzen, and argufies for
them shoutin method 1st, and exposes
the aekrete of the republican club, the
same beln composed principally of
lawyers, polltishuns, and horse-doctors.
How sumever, he set me to thlnklu,
and when the wheels get to goln
around In my head, someplu gets
ground out. ' ., .
I haint ben up to Lebanon much
since hollydays, fur the road from
Camas Flat has bin so muddy, I didn't
like to look at It. It looks like the
Mizzury river, and as I am the super
vizor, I don't like to hear my nayburs
cuesin mo for lack of energy in not 1m
provin it more then I doo. How sum
ever I kin write and that resignats me
to llvin down here at the flat.
We don't have eniiy leotrie lights to
milk our cows by, and If we do have
to coon the fence to git frum the house
to the bam, we are not to enny egz
pence fur sidewalks.
I alut no debater, but I must take
excepUhuns to wun of Jim Jam's
statements. He sez, "you can't get
people to think of heven.fur times Is
so hard and the courrtfy is so full of
populists." Why that is just the time
they.do think of hoven, their Is allways
a big lot of revivals just after a period
of depreshun, and I can pnve what I
say by the Oregonian, the people turn
to salvation then fur its the only thing
that Is free, and they hevn't got any
money to Bpeud In riotus liyin. If
mouey was as plenty as the populists
want it, Iheprecchers would have to
go to Afriky for their coaverts. The
people would go sailin strait down the
road to hades and pay the cash as they
went, and forget all the store bills they

to get our auger into 'em?
Sny, Jim Jams, 1 am comin up to
that republikin olub, and If you have
a mourner's benoh, I think I'll goln
with you. For accordin to the popu
lists there aint any difference between
a democrat and a republican euny way.

Mrs, Evans showed how well she Is
qualified to bring up her children to
emulate the deeds of their Illustrious
sire, during her visit with him on the
road from Modesto to the State's pris
on at Folsom. . She repeatedly Up
braided the partner of her oys and tbe
father of her children for not contin
uing his career of murder when at bay
and surrounded by bis little sons, until
he bad killed as many more men as
possible before Anally receiving a coup
de grace from his surviving pursuers.
Such is the woman who is tbe mother
of the sons of such a father! She Is
lett to continue the education of the
Evans children in crime while he Is In
prison for life, If ever there was a
mother who was unfitted for mother
hood In a civilized community this
woman Is she. The proper authorities
should lose no time In removing the
Evnns children from the vicious Influ
ence of their natural protector, and in
placing them where their minds will
be turned from thoughts of murder
and rebbery and demoralization of
every kind, to better and nobler things,
to the end that society may not be ex
posed to the ravageB of a new crop of
murderei'B and robbers when these
children grow to maturity.

Tide Turns. Several times during
the past two years, when the advortls- .

The Times speaks falsely when It
says that this paper gave them some
unkind cuts; also when it states that
we have out the paper to "just half Its
fprmer size," as the present size of the
Express Is considerably larger than
half its former size. And agalu the
Times makes a mis-statement by say
ing that our columns are "very short
columns" as they are standard
length. As to eight columns being
filled with "old stale plates," if we re

printed in the Times, that were fully
as ancient as any matter we bave pub
