About The Lebanon express. (Lebanon, Linn County, Or.) 1887-1898 | View Entire Issue (July 9, 1896)
H". Y. KIRKPATR1CK,
Editor - and -'Proprietor
The newly elected county of
ficials have taken charge of their
respective offiues. Lebanon peo
ple B'iU be particularly; .concerned
with the new county clerk, a citizen
of this place; and hope that Mr.
' Montague will make & model of
ficial. The people at large wi'd
watch closely the conduct of all
the new officers. The populist are
solmrily pledged to the strictest
economy. The lopping off of a few
minor expenses here and there will
not satisfy the people who have
been led to believe that great sav
ings would be made. Economy
muBt be rigid, continuous and in
all places alike. "Useless deputies,"
"high salaried clerks" and "out
rageoDS bills," against which the
populists vowed vengeance must
cease. Remembering their cam
paigu speeches of hard times and
dose economy, it would deem pretty
cheaky for the populist officials to
draw even their legal salaries. It
would be impossible to conceive
how they could ask the county to
pay deputy hire. Let the officials
remember to practice their motto
of special privileges to none etc,

The June number of the Pacific
' Korthwest has an interesting
"write op" of Linn county. It has
several handsome engravings of
points of interest in Albany, and
gives statistics of all the cities,
towns and villages, pretty much,
near Lebanon. It has no mention
of Lebanon at all, but tells all about
Plain view. Albany gets the big
slice. The fellow who wrote the
article should come out to Lebanon
and see a place where people are
prosperous, contented and happy;
where failures are practically un
known ;were the finest paper is made
in the state; 'where beautiful and
delicious fruits abound; where the
best flower of the county is made;
where the only excelsior works in
the county are working full handed
and thousand of cords of wood are
consumed annually; where the best
equipped electric light and water
company is located. In a word,
let this benighted scribe come to
Lebanon and see the only live town
in the country.
If the people of Lebanon want
the motor line from here to Water
loo now is the time to act This
matter should not be treated as a
joke, as some have been trying to
do, but we would come out squarely
on one aide or the other, and if we
want it say what we will do and
put it down. We know times are
hard but we should show our will
ingness. Some say that this man
Wilkins don't amount to anything
and could not build anything. Mr.
Wilkins does not claim to be doing
this himself but says be represents
capitalists. Eon. Thos. Kay says
he believes Wilkins is all right and
has subscribed $4,000 to the euter
. prise himself alone and will do
more if necessary. All of the Water
loo people have come to the front
liberally. Some of the Sodaville
people have kicked out of tbe traces
hut the most are coming back.
Now the question is what will
It is very possible that a senator
ial deadlock will deprive Oregon of
any legislation next year. The re
publicans will have about sixty
members and the majority of the
remaining thirty will be populist
The republican strength will be
about equally divided, and unless
they can get together it will he
impossible to elect. Verily it be
gins to look as though tbe halls of
tbe senate will be depopulated
through inability of legislatures to
elect It, however, will have the
good effect of hastening the time
when senators will be elected by
the people. Wasco News.

The Oregonian told its readers a
year ago that the Bilver craze had
run its race and that it was
dead issue. The corps seems to
give that paper and its associates
considerable trouble just now and

tinue to do bo until after tbe elec
tion, when the Oregonian will have
again to mourn another lost cause.
The June election in Oregon
should be abolished, but to do so
it will be necessary to change our
old moss covered constitution
There is no sound reason for keep
ing the election in June. There
are many for changing it to No

of two elections, where one would
serve all purposes as well. Moro

breathing impure air. Ninety nine
per cent of what are termed colds
are nothing more or less than the
poisoning of the mucous mem
brane by bad air.
