IF IT'S WAR, LET IT COME!
But the Union Must and
Will the coming month develop
a revolution or not? Thousands
of American citizens are turning
this question over in their minds.
Organised labor and organized cap
ital have thrown down the gaunt
let and it looks very much like a
fight to a finish. One cannot exist
without the other, and if the pres
ent situation will result in deter
mining the middle ground upon
which both can stand, no one will
regret the inconvenience caused.
The paralysis of business result
ing from the strike has spread like
t a plague into the small towns of
the country and the people of the
country have been brought face to
face with the' problem.
It is bringing them to think that
government ownership is the onlv
thing which will prevent future
complications. If this strike it
repeated government control will
be demanded by the people.
The strike is the effort of organ
ized labor to dictate the price ol
human work. Capital, like an
absolute monarch, has had the saj
in the past. Labor unions art
but the result of the organizattoi
of capital and the sympathies ol
the people should not be given tu
either side until time has passed
and the facts in the case have been
fully considered. The disobedienw
of the law by either side should bt
punished, if it takes the standing
army of the United States to do it
This country must be preserved
and banded down to the coming
HOW FAB BICYCLISTS GO.
Few people, who are not active
bicyclists, have any notion of the
great distance traveled by men and
boys on their wheels on Saturday
afternoons and Sundays. Bicycle
riders are accustomed to relate
stories of the distance covered, but
their tales are not always received
with evidence of belief. There is a
' sort of good natured theory afloat
that such stories should be accepted
just as the fishing tales of favored
members of the family are received
by indulgent audiences. As a
matter of fact, however, the runs of
bicycle enthusiasts verge upon the
marvelous. New Yorkers think
nothing of going to Coney Island
and back on Sunday, and this not
only means a journey of 30 to 40
miles, but is made ever all sorts
and conditions of roads and pave
ments, and is usually, says the
New York Sun, made by men who
are not in prime condition- Three
schoolboys started out toward
Newark on Sunday on their wheels
from Seventy-sixth street, aud
when they returned at night they
had penetrated far into New Jersey
and had rolled up 60 miles in the
course of the day. They were slim,
well-built lade ranging between 14
and 16 years of age, and they came
home atter the journey perfectly
fresh and strong. The run from
New York to Philadelphia a few
days since, in which over 100 bicy
diets competed, including a num
ber of women, went through suc
cessfully and without a hitch. The
distance traveled was upward of
100 miles in the course of the day,
and all the starters, including the
women, finished in good form.
Fovebty, honesty and truth are
said to fall to the lot of the average
newspaper man. To this can be
added political honor at least
with some of the press writers of
Oregon. The newspaper men seem
to have been in it in the recent
election. H. R. Kincaid, of the
Eugene Journal; will be secretary
of state; W. H. Leeds, of the Ash
land Tidings, will be state printer;
B. F. Alley, of the Florence West,
M State senator; in the house will!
fel Editor Tattersou, of Hbppner; J
Stewart of Coos and Curry; Guild,
of Tillamook and Yamhill; More
head, of Lane; Curtis of Clatsop;
and Ilofer, of Marion.
The great railroad strike now
going on has dealt a heavy blow to
the fruitgrowers of Middle and
Northern California. Deciduous
fruits ripen rapidly at this season
if the year and during the last few
Jays fruit to the value of hundred
of thousands of dollars has perislied
for want of transportation to mar
ket. It is hard to understand what
railroad employes gain by these
frequent and indiscriminate strikes.
However, it is easy to see that
"bad blood," mutual suspicion and
distrust is engendered; a disposi
tion to tyrannize on the purt of the
employer and a defiant feeling to,
rebel on the part of the employe, is
the natural consequence of such
action. Differences between em
ploper and employe Bhould adjudi
cated in the open court of reason,
justice and common sense. It is
reasonable to suppose that both
parties have mutual grounds of
complaint, and a Iresort to force
will never settle these antagon
isms. The kind of strike that 1b most
needed in this country is a strike
against anarchy. Strike it down
and crush it while it is down.
Crop and Weather.
The weather has been exceedingly
favorable to the growth of all vegeta
tiou. The hay crop is reported U be
unusually heavy. Fall sown wheat Ik
in the dough. Spring wheat is head
Jig. Oats, barley aud rye are coloring
nd hops have a most prolific growth.
Hop lice have made their appearance;
but due to the extensive system of
spraying there wjll be but little dam
ige from them. A .larger acreage of
potatoes tuau usual were planted and
rhey have excellent growth. The
iierry crop is ripening rapidly. Home
few localities report fruitatill dropping
off. The general ftuit outlook is not
discouraging. The latter few days of
warmth have been of material benefit
A Live Small Man.
The Balem Independent tells the
following: The death of a small man
was narrowly averted by the large
tellow taking to his heels in flight.
The eontroveray commenced in front
of the Bazaar Auction store on state
street, over an argument on the pen
don question. The small man and
the big man couldn't agree, the former
being of the opinion that pension
money was too freely given, and men
tioned, by the way, that a strapping
fellow bad no right to such monies.
Now it happened that the large man
was a pensioner and a big strapping
fellow, and it hit him so close 46
where he lived that he became angry.
He there upon called the little giant
a vile name and "David" at once start
ed at "Goliah" intending to smite
him In the foiebead. Now It came to
pass that "Goliah" marked "David's'1
intent and turned to flee to bis habita
tion. In so doing he passed quickly
througn the auction "temple" anil
struck the stove, laying It low. He
however, made bis -exit through the
backdoor and dissappeared amongst
the multitude. The little man held
the fort aud officers appeared, but no
arrests were made, as -no disturbance
A Mine Sold for $20,000.
The mining people will be interested
in learning that the valuable quartz
mine belonging to flirdsey, Knott k
Swioden situated in the BUckwell
district, near Gold Hill, Jackson
comity, was recently sold to Chapman
Bros., of California for (20,000. The
ledge is 8 feet wide, and shows much
freeguld, some of the rock rivaling
in richness the famous Gold Hill rock.
There are 40 tons of picked ore, on the
dump.which it is claimed, will assay
$50 to the ton. Several hundred dollars
have been taken from tbls ledge, and
the original company has a lot of sacks
of rich ore which were not Included in
the tale, and which are expected to
reach into the thousands when crushed.
The purchasers intend to sink 100 feet
into the ground at once, and it preserves
its width and richness at that depth,
they will put up a 10-itamp mill and
operation will be commenced on a
Shot His Brother's Head Off.
Two small boys and a shot gun that
wasn't loaded" are the principals in
a terrible, awful accident at Mc
Minnville. Or., last Tuesday evening.
The boys were eons of P.K. Smith and
were aged five and twelve respectively.
They were playing that one was the
sheriff the othera horse thief. The
older boy had an old shot gun and in
bis play he innocently raised it Uose

and bits flesh, bones and brains of the

one of the ten thousands accident?

Another Farmer Bunooed.
A Folk county farmer was In Port-
Ind the other day consulting with an
old friend of the legal persuasion, In
regard to extricating himself from
bad scrape. Recently lie wished to
borrow (3,000 and reoived a note from
a party in Balem, ottering to loan him
the money. He went to the capital
and made arrangements for the louu.
He even went so far as to put his
name to a note tor $8,000, and left It
with the "capitalist," till he bhould
take his wile to sign It and the other
papers the next day, when he was to
receive the coin. When he went to
consummate the transaction, the
"capitalist" had no further use for
him, and declined to discuss a loau or,
any other subject with him, and most
particularly to give up any uole.
One Prosperous Business.
One of the busiest places in Oregon
is the Pioueer stone quarry at Yaquiua
Bay. Work is progressing day and
night. Twenty-eight men are now
employed. The querry is located about
1000 feetnurth of Barney Morrison's
place on the Yaqulna river. The
Oregon Pacific has constructedasiding
and the blocks of stone are conveyed
directly from the quarry to the cars hy
means of a large steam derrick. The
land is owned by J- M. Hopell and
the company operating the business
has.secured a nine year lease on the
ground. This company Is composed
of H. G. Luker, G. W. Davis and W.
H. Alexander, all residents of Balem
Mr. Davis went to the Bay yesterday
in the enterest of the business.
. ' Oregon Pacific Claim.
A number of the creditor of the
Oregon Pacific, principally holders of
labor and material claims, met at
Detroit this week to consider means
if possible ct securing their claims.
A committee of the men went to
Corvallis yesterday. Beceiver Clark
is managing the road well and Is
makingitpay runningexpenses during
the dullest times ever known in Oregon
It is said in Corvallis Unit the road
will be ordered sold next time without
reserve, and the creditors may become
bidden at the next sale.
Declared a Dividend,
During these tight times when It is
customary to hear of business losses
and failures, it is refreshing to hear of
a business declaring a dividend. On
Tuesday says the Scio Press, the bank
of bcio declared a Dividend of 10
per cent on Its capital stock. This
will place about $2000 in circulation
that otherwise would have remained
in the bank vaults.

the county road by E. Jackson and A. E.

obstructions to be removed, s

by taking Dr. Grant's Kidney and Liver

has been effected in my case.
