TOTHI EnilOB DP the EXPassi :
Thinking that a few, at least, of the
many readers of the Express will take
interest In any Information concern
ing tb's town, I take this opportunity
to write a few Items.
Of course, times are dull here as
everywhere else, but strangers are
coming In every day some locating
permanently while other only stay a
day or two. Present Indications are
that tills town will have quite a little
loom this summer, hut whether or not
it will be a "healthy growth" remains
The cltisens here evidently "love
darkness rather than light," as the
street are not lighted. Of course, this
seems quite a drawback to a stranger,
but then it la a comfort to reflect that
no "Electric Light A Water Co." has
a "dead mortal cluch" on the town.
The people here do not lack for
amusement. For Instance, the Evaus
A Bonta ; play were "on deck" last
night, and that king of cranks, (I do
not refer to the Waterloo crank, but a
much more dangerous crunk) Governor
Pennoyer, Is billed to address the
people here the 28th of this month.
N. B. The readers may consider
Pennoyer referred to as being danger
ous to the old parties or to the geueral
public, 'as they please and the writer
will do the same.
This is the best field for another
newspaper tiiat I know of In Oregon,
although there is a good paper here.
As a former printer I should know
whereof I speak, and it seems to me
shere is a good opening for another
good- local paper, especially with a
good job office In connection.

Lebanon that the "pops" have con

"in the middle of the ruad." Who
knows? It umy be that the Dr. will

from Lombard Kt., London, sent by
Captain Pope, Haling that he bas

of this country and that the price of

Impending ruin by a little systematic

"The wild missionary schemes

say I at the breakfast table after Lu
cindy and Tuba had been shoving
more of that trashy uon-admlulstra.
lion democratic and populist doctrine
under my nose. -
"Why do you call It wild aud mis
sionary?" asked Cindy, "you never
read any of the literature."
"Well," says I, "I read something
better. I read the Oregonian, Courier,
Journal, St. Louis Republic, aud
many other tapers which are In a
position to know and they all say that

being the ease, If the vague ideas
of the free silver ueuiocrats, republi
cans and silver leagues, aud the Idea
of flexible money advanced by the
populists and prohi's, could result in
nothing but fluctuation"
"Well, let 'er 'fluct,'" said Tubs.
"I rjwould get me a decent suit of
clothes, a loi of good books, a good
watch and chain, a bicycle, a good
shotgun, a birddog aud mauy other
things. And I would get for mamma
a new cooking stove, a decent heater,
a parlor set, new brussels carpets, aud
I would replace that one-legged bed In
the corner with a nice chamber set,
jind I would dress her up as nice as
the wife of J. L. Cowan and I would
lift the mortgage from our only home
while It was flucting."
"That would be nioe, my son, but"

"Well now pa," said Tubs In tones
that brought tears to the beautiful
brown eyes of his 'mother, "you seem'
to have had great sympathy for the
black slave, can you not have some
sympathy for the white slaves, for the
son who bas tried to he dutiful and
obedient to you? For my poor mother
to whom you pledged your sacred
honor to love, cherish and protect?
For our kindred, friends and neighbors
who are being reduced to a rank In

To this I could make no reply. I

- AH is anxiety in regard to Cnxey's
army and one would think to see the
avidity with which the dailies are
seized that we had relatives or very
dear friends in that motly mob. If
that venture is a success, let Lebanon
look out for we are coming.
The "big guns" of the W. 0. Co. are
daily expected and longed for by at
least one man in our town. When
they come he is going to have the
charter of the town knocked higher
than Gullderoy's kite, ail old fines
remitted and the town swiped out of
existence (In his mind).
Politics are scarcely thought of here
at present unless by those who may be
called to the front In June. It Is said
by some that Senator Hutton Is pre
paring a few bills to present to the
senate, and that Assessor Glbberdt has
a few old property tax blanks on

I am not as those men."
Friday evening was a time of prayer
in our law-abiding burg. Two promi
nent members of the Evangelical per
suasion took this opportunity of hold
ing forth in true Roman style, One
did not desire the kind of religion
eujoyed by his brother, aud the worthy
brother would shout "Amen" much to

the scandal of those who do enjoy,

. Last Friday was a day long to be
remembered In Waterloo. The "Bat
tle of Waterloo" was fought agaii.
This engagement occurred between 8
and 9 P. M., and this time Emerson
was the routed aud badly disfigured
combatant. The euemy was strongly
reinforced by relays of anoleut hen

haud of some party or parties un known.
Sonie'20 rounds were fired, after whloh
the unknown withdrew their forces,
but left all the fruits of viotory upon

The why and wherefore of all this is
rather complicated. The aforesaid

THE MOTOR LINE.
'It is learned that the Albany Street
Railway Company Is considering tiio
project of building their motor line
to Sodaville and Waterloo. There was
talk of building It a year or so ago, but
It was dropped for the time, but it Is
learned that the question Is now being
considered in earnest. During the
present depressed times the road could
bo built much more cheaply than at
any other time, and some such feeder
is needed to make the motor line pay.
An engineer was consulted about the
project a few days ago. The company ;
is considering two routes, one from
Albany to Tangent, thence southeast
to Waterloo, and another from Albany
to the Springs via Lebanon. A motor
line to these famous summer resorts
wouid result in a large traffic, espec
ially during the summer season, aud
would also do a good business from the
rich farming community through
which it would pass. It' is mid that a
number of farmers have offered to give
the right-of-way and to contribute
liberally toward the building of the
line, as it would enhance the value of
their land and give a rapid transit to
It is to be hoped the project will
result in the building of tiie line this

Those who never read the advertise

prominent German citizen of Ft. Mad

same medicine, and to use his own
words: "It cured me right up." He
also says: "A neighbor and his wife
