THE FOURTH AT WATERLOO.
While other cities of this gloiious re
public were honoring their nation's
birthday by grand displays, by
eloquent speeches, and by surging
crowds of happy and enthusiastic
cilltens, the city of Waterloo, the most
delightful watering place of the Will
amette valley, paid homage to the day
in a celebration not less pleasing or
patriotic than that of our larger cities.
The enterprise of the citizens, the
natural features such as the never-failing
soda springs, the grand waterfalls
and the abundant shade of the many
trees, beside the large and pleasant
crowd, rendered the celebration a de
cided success. Many persons anie
with their camping outfits and pitched
their tents for a few days, and were
thus not only able to see all the features
of the celebration, but also to enjoy an
outing at tills beautiful resort.
Early tin) morning visitors began
arriving and continued to arrive until
the ujjiriber, was pronounced the larg
est .'that eVer visited Waterloo at on
lime,..; The exercises of the day were
begun at the usual hour. The Soda
ville band furnished the rnusicc. Miss
Ilda EJklns, an accomplished young
lady of Lebanon, read the Declaration
of Independence in her most pleasing
.style. After this the pleasing and
eloquent orator, Hon C. B. Montague
of Lebanon, delivered the oration of
the day. This oration traced the de
velopements of our country" in ex-
Mention of territory and resources, paid
U fitting tribute to our own state, and
&ave some healthful and earnest sug
gestions for preservation and future
welfare of the nation.

THAT MOTOR LINE.
There Is talk that the motor project
to Waterloo Is falling through; but the
following from theStita teaman Indicate
that it not only is not; but Is to go
right through to Salem, probably the
way the Falls City and Btayton motor
Hon. Thoa. Kay returned from
Waterloo yesterday, where he went s
few days ago to ottend a moss meeting
of citizens of that progressive little
burg which was called for the purpose
of taking some actien with reference
to the new motor lino which a Port
land syndicate proposes to build from
that place to Lebanon and presumably
to Salem, in the near future.
The meeting was held in Waterloo
on Wednerdav evenlmr. and
deal of enthusiasm manifested over the
project. Superintendent Wilkin, the
promoter of the road, was Dreamt and
reported progress in securing subscrip
tion for the enterprise, as also the right
of way from Waterloo to Lebanon.
Ibis latter is quite an item, and the
right of way was given cheerfully by
the owners of the oronertv concerned
along the entire line, with the excep
tion of two men, who refuse to give
consent for the road to bo built across
their premises unless thev could dictate
the direction It should take in passing
tnrougb their farms. This, however,
will be arranged satisfactorily in a verv
short time. Mr. Kay also spoke and
argued in ravor of having tiie road im
mediately built to Sulem, where the
river steamers landed every dav of the
year, where the state capitol and all
the public Institutions were located,
and from which place hundreds of
people would annually come to visit the
springs at Sodaville and Waterloo, pro.
vidiug they could get there without
being forced to muse the fatiguing
Other gentlemen spoke in favor of
the scheme and considerable money
A committee of ten gentlemen was
appointed to assist lu helping matters
along, aud to have a mettiug called for
July 4th, on the occasion of the cele
bration, when the matter will again
be placed before the public.

ground with his family, having located
at Lebanon for the present, aud he will

telegraphic Hue between that place and
Waterloo, the timber for the poles be

In a short time, it is exnected. that
grading will commence on that end of

decided upon, the work between Leba

The citizens of Salem now have nn
opportunity to get in ond secure the
one thing needful to make Salem a
leading city in the true sense of the
word, by securing this motor line.
There is only one obstacle to overcome
and that is the bridging of the two
branches of the Santiam, which, of
course, will be somewhat expensive,
but outside of that the line will be very
The Crops. '
Mr. Pague says: The warm dry
weather bos been unfavorable to late-
sown grain aud to gardens. Fall and
winter-sowu grain withstands the
warm dry weather, though it, too,
would be benefitted by rain, for it
would allow the heads to fill better.
The late-sown grain is in fair condition
while that that sown after the mlddie
of May is in very poor condition. The
dry weather is not favorable to the
berry crop, though the orop is lu good
condition and very prolific. Corn Is
growing finely; It, too, would be bene
fitted by rain. The weather is fine for
haying, and the hay crop is being
harvested In good form. There are no
conditions present today that Indicate
a material change from the current
weather. Ruin from lliiiiiileritarm is
probable, but otherwise there is little
hope for rain.
