THE COMING ELECTION.
On the first Monday in Pecero
W, the citizens of Lebanon will be
called upon to elect officers for the
ensuing rear. The officers last
year have served the city to the
best ot tneir ability. The ensuing
year will be a trying one on both
the city and its officials. There
will be bills and no money to pay
with. Good financiering w'll be
necessary. The council will have
disagreeable duties to perform aud will
receive many kicks for pay. It is a
thankless job at best. But some one
will kere to serve and the very best
are needed now. The question of
bonding the city may be brougnt up.
This is uo time to divide na politics,
religion or temperance. Let men of
thorough business qualifications be
elected, aud then let the people sustain
them iu their efiorts on behalf of the
What the state needs most of
anything in the way of legislation.
is a law regulating railroad freight
rates. For years past, or even
since the Southern Pacific Com
pany obtained control of its lines
in Oregon, that corporation has
taken all the profit there was in
farming, for carrying the farmer's
products to market. This fact is
so plain and indisputable that
argument is not necessary to
establish it. For instance, it has
coat about eighteen cents a bushel
to ship wheat from Rosebbrg to
Portland, until recently a slight
reduction was made, the price be
ing so low that the company pro
bably thought it a good idea to
allow the farmer to keep enough
back to pay for his sacks, other
wise no grain might have been
shipped. These rates should be
cut in two by the legislature,
which has full power to do so. In
the middle western states the
question of railroad fares and
freight enters largely into the
election of members of the legis
lature, 'and it is high time the same
thing was agitated here. Of course,
the present legislature will be dom
inated by Joe Simon, and the
Southern Pacific Company's inter-,
ests are .afe, but two years later
the monoply should be given a
black- eye. If the press of the
state will begin the agitation now
and keep it up, the people will
rule in the session og W. Rose
The agricultural depression may
have some beneficial results in Ore
gon. Men will be driven to great
er and more diversified exertions.
Agricultural lands will be put to a
greatef variety of uses. Other re
sources will be more energetically
developed. Already "hogs" are
. much talked of. Oregon should
produce all the hog products, dairy
products, and poultry and eggs it
consumes. The fruit industry is
coming to the front. Except for
early fruits, California can not
compete successfully with Oregon
in the territory north and eaBt of
here. Oregon fruit is a wonder to
all eastern beholders. The "best
efforts will make this st te second
to very few in the union for fruit.
Oregon's mineral wealth is vast,
almost illimitable. It is being de
veloped as never before. The rug
ged but rich mountains and can
yons of Eastern and Southern Ore
gon contain untold millions, that
capital labor will produce and pour
out into the channels of commerce.
Lumber, .fish, live-stock and vari
ous other products, will swell the
ever grandly increasing total as
the years pass. There is no better
field for money ind muscle, brains
and industry, than Oregon. Ex
change. The great contest that will he
waged in the next session of the
Oregon legislature will be for the
re-enactment of the mortgage tax
law and exemption for honest in
debtedness. The present assess
ment laws work an injury upon
the masses in the interest of the
money lenders, and are unjust and
inequitable. The borrower, the
jroor man struggling to build him
self a home, the farmer whose
furm is mortgaged, t lies a all suffer
from double taxation. The Re
view has fought the battle of the
people upon this question for years,
and proposes to see that all that
honest efiort can do will be done
in order to get the legislature to
act in the interest of the plain
penpieofthe land, to use a favorite
expression of Abraham Lincoln.
In Douglas county, there is but
one opinion upon this subje.'t, and
evwy candidate for the legislature
gave his written pledge to work
for the re-enactment of just laws.
The monster petition gathered
by the San Francisco Examiner
against the extension of time for
the payment ot the Southern Pa
cific railroad's indebtedness to the
government will bring the govern
mental control of railroads to the
front as leading question at the
next session of congress. There
should be but one opinion among
the people regarding the indebted
ness of this company to the gov
ernment. The debt Bhould be paid
or the toad sold. As to whether
the government should bid it in is
a momentous . issue upon which
there is much to be said on each
-side. But there can be only one
decision as to the necessity of the
government enforcing all its legal
claims and at the first opportunity.
It requires no argument to dem
onstrate that the owners never did
and do not now intend to Keep
faith with the government. Then
why parley with them? Forclose
the mortgages. Portland Sun.

The Czar Alexander is deid and
his eldest son reigns under the

czar exerted a good effect on the
world's progress. He has done
much to better his country and
has kept Europe from a useless

probably a more kindly feeling
toward the persecuted Jews.

The Eastern papers say that
money matters are getting easier,
business is begining to revive and
the factory wheels are begining to
turn throughout the manufactur
ing districts. In Iowa times have
not been better for years than they
are now. Corn, pork and beef, the
three great staples of that country,
command a good price. Prices
have about reached bedrock else
where and a general business re
vival is sure to be the logical
With the coming of manufactur

Without going into details, the whole
country seems to have been swept by a
republican eyclone, knocking out com
