the study, reading and recitation, of poems,
nek-eld from Bryant, interspersed, with
singing of national hymns and other abiig,'
by American authors. The exercises were
iiiiily American, and a lively interest!!
American talent was aroused. The exer-'
rises were so varied and. arranged that each
pupil in the scveial rooms took part tn llje

In the primary rooms, the exercises were'

About the Fish Question
The fish question along the Umpqua
is rather amusing to disinterested per
sons. Parties living south of Roeeburg
claim that the dam at this -place pre
vents fish of all kinds from ascending
the river. The people living along the
river at aud below Rosebu'rg allege
that the river Is blocked by the seines'
and nets of the fishermen for oauneries
on the lower river. The fishermen
in turn deny the charge, aud say that
the largest part of the catch this sea-.
sou has been of fish tpat had passed
; their nets aud were caught on their
return to the sea, as they were, caught
ou the up-stream side of the nets.
However, the fact remains that, but
few fish are being caught in this vicin
ity. -Another peculiar feature, of the'
question Is that tlie best trptit, streams.
later lu the season are said to be. those

The Electric Light Plant.' ' '
The question of the Elcctrto Llglff
plant is now before the people. The
columns of this paper are open to com-
municutions lor either side, and we
invite a full discussion of the question,
iu order tnatwe may tons give the
people a fair understanding of the.
question they are called Upon ,to
decide. We believe that $16,000, the
price nf the plant, Is about Its actual
cost. Personally we would like for
the city to own the piant in order tliat;
it might have belter facilities for fur
nishing liglit and water to all' parts'
of the cily alike, but whether (be city
can afford such a heavy indebtedness,
is a question far more important th'au
the Individual preferences of our
citizens. The cost is tlie question.

Do either one of these conditions exist?
It 'tis'sec'.". The city is now in debt about'
IM.ie after 'ravi'nit $794.71 for lighta and
VS6.94 for hydrants' and purchasing $346.40
worth of fire annaratus. and meeting its

occasioned mainly by tlie bills for lighls,

exifcnses', the yearly incodie will be from
$1)00 to $1,300. with about $300 for a 3 mill

chatter to Issue bonds' for $iQ,O00-i-or less
to meet any deficit, ' . .
' Ufiaer tliis showing, the city will of
coHrse be'iitdebted at the end pf the year
from $500 to $800. Foreseeing just the Btate
of sfTairs, the legislation has already made
e'lnjile, provisions for meeting; any possible

c'anrit be alleged that the city is on tlie
verge of ruin, and can only save itself by
incurring' a. $16,000 indebtedness in order
to purchase this plant? Surely not. It is
true that the payment for lights and water
has. plunged .the city into debt, but of
the cost of lights has been stopped and the
other can be stopped in three years.
The cost '.or water, although running for
thirfeeii years longer,' is. but a small item.
'THe c'ffy might expe'rienae a delightful
sensation in owning this handsome plant.
but what kind of a sensation would it ex-
lieneuce wneh pay-day" came?
In the first place, there is $16,000 to borrow
with pay-day coming as sure as death.
Then is at least $1,120 interest, $3,000 for
power, labor, material and repair, with a
loss from $1,000 to $2,000 for the natural
deterioration of the plant every year. The
actual ahriuaTco'st to the city wuuld be from
$,4000 to $6,000- To ojftettliis the city would

Ihe 6nd of, (say) fifteen years, the city will
have the original $10,000 to pay and a

'money to pay the ' $16,000. iu bonds iu (say)
