The following are the provisions
of the cojnpulsory education law
now in force in Oregon, which
might be well for some of the
parents around Lebanon to bear
Sec. 65. Every parent, guardian
or other person in the state h iving
control of a child or children be
tween the ages of eight and four
teen years shall be required to
send BUch child or children to
public school fur a period of twelve
weeks in every school year, of
which at least eight weeks school
(shall) be consecutive, unless the
bodily or mental condition of such
child or children has been such as
to prevent his or her or their
attendance at school or application
to study for the period required, or
unless such child or children are
taught in a private school or at
home in suoh branches as are us
ually taught in primary Bchools,
or have already acquired the ordi
nary branches of learning taught
in the public school; provided, in
case a public school shall not be
taught for a period of twelve weeks,
or any part thereof, during the
year, within two miles by the
nearest traveled road of the resi
dence of any person within the
district, he or she shall not be liable
to the provisions of this act.
Sec. 66. Any parent, guardian,
or other person having control or
charge of any child or children fail
ing to comply with the provisions
of this act shall be liable to a fine
of not less than five dollars nor
more than twenty-five dollars for
the first offense, nor less than twenty-five
dollars nor more than fifty
dollars for the second and each
subsequent offense, besides the
cost uf the prosecution.
Sec. 67. It shall be the duty of
the directors and clerk of each
Bchool district to make diligent ef
fort to see that this law is enforced
in their respective districts.
Sec. 68. Justices of the peace
shall have concurrent jurisdiction
with the circuit court in all prose
cutions unde this act.
In the coming political campaign
the tariff' issue will be necessarily
supreme; but all the indications
arc that in the jrreat presidential
contest two years hence, the silver
question will demand as much at
tention as the tariff question.
The two causes ore one. The
country produces 40 per cent of
the world's silver produce; and it
is tiie greatest of all producers of
the staple commodities which are
most positively and injuriously
affected by persistent rise of gold.
Free trade and gold monometallism
are British policies. They belong
together. Free trade threatens
our manufactures. Gold mono
metallism has done incalculable
harm to our farmers. Philadel

Fbuit raising will eventually be
. a leading indus.ry of Late county,
and should be now. The profit on
prunes at the ruling prices is
better than could be realized from
any kind of grain. Markets can
be found for this fruit throughout
the world. Theshipmentof appleB
East last fall proved conclusively
that they can be raised and shipped
with profit. In Iowa and other
Eastern states, where a few years
ago apples were raised in con
siderable quantities, comparatively
few are now raised, and a market
.is open for just such sections as the
Wilbinette valley. The man with
a good fruit orchard will be indep
endent and in good circumstances
when others are struggling for an
There is no likelihood of any
better price being realized for hops
this year, and very little likelihood
of a better price next year. Con
sumers of hops will not neglect to
lay in a good to.:k this year v.hile
prices are so remarkably low, and
next year will not be pressed for
bops sufficiently to advane good
A correspondent to the States
man who signs himself "a victim"
expresses himself quite plainly in
regard to building and lorn asso
ciations, Ho describes the "busi
ness" as loaning a sucker a few
hundred dollars and taking his
noteB for two or three times the
amount on condition that he buy a
gravel lot on which to build
house with what ffjoney remained
and what credit he could get of
hardware BtoreB, lumber conpanies
and mechanics' labor and then
after Bwesting under periodical
paymentB upon the swelled note as
long as he could earn, borrow or
beg them, having the whole taken
in by the association for the non
payment of the remainder." How
long will the people permit these
usurious corporations to live un
restricted by low? Do not be be-
gui'.ded by them. Remember that
nothing is honestly obtained with
out a just equivalent, and when
you ere offered something for
nothing you want to see that it
is absolutely free and without
strings on it. Buy your home from
a reliable mm and if you have to
borrow money to help pay for it
borrow it in the old fashioned way
from those who have honest money
to loan. Then, if you would pros
per, buy your groceries at a grocery
store and not from a peddler. Buy
your clothing f'om a reputable
dealer whose word can be relied on
and when you buy all wool don't
expect to get it et the price of
cotton. When you buy hardware
or household goods use like pru
dence. When you buy rat poison
or moth exterminator shun the
stranger and patronize the home
druggist. When you invest in
crayon portraits know who you
are dealing with. If you are sick,
call in the home physician don't
be victimized by the "strictly con
fidential" correspondence frauds.

prizefighting is a brutal profession,

barrelled shot gun. Ex.

AGAINST A CHANGE.
The Linn County Alliance has
passed the following school book reso
Whereas, There aeemstn be another
movement working by the state school
superintendent and school book trust
to force another change of school books
upon an overburdened laboring people.
Therefore be it
Resolved, By the Lino County
Alliance, assembled in regular meeting
that we denounce the same as unjust
oppressive and uncalled for, and under
the present financial condition, an
outrage, as many of the school children
could not procure the necessary books
to attend school.
Resolved, That we ask the people
of Linn county and all other counties
in Oregon to protest the proposed
change. Further that we urgently
request the next legislature to so
change the law in regard to school
books to take out of tne superintend
ent's power and put It Into the hands
of the people, to be voted for or against
at the general election at stated periods
fixed by law.
Whereas, Our present officers af
ter all their pledges of economy before
election have have shown the usual
greed of trying to bleed the laboring
classes by having proceedings begun
in the courts In annul the salary law
and restore the fee system, therebv

Resolved, That we, the officers and

denounce the same as unjust and op

and that we request all county iwmm
