That Waterloo Ditch.
Thos. Kay was lu Lebanon Monday,
on his way to Salem, Mr. Kay informed
us that theie was a muss meeting in
Waterloo last Saturday evening, to
consider tho proposition of digging a
large water ditch, The ditch Is to be
constructed by a stock company, and
will cost In the neighborhood of $6,000.
The Thos, Kay Woolen Mill company
will be the chief stock-holders.
County Surveyor Fisher spent four
days at Waterloo last week, surveying
different routes for this ditch. The
length ef the ditch will be one mile
and 200 feet, Instead of six miles, as
hus been reported by several papers
throughout the stute. The principal
cost and trouble will be u ten-foot dum
that will have to be constructed In the
river or by putting in a fifteen-foot
dum they will only have a few hun
dred yards of ditch to build.
The cltiisena of Waterloo are In
earnest lu the matter, and Mr. Kay
save he thinks the ditch will surely be
J built. He savs that as soon as sufficient
water power is assured, there will be
I plenty ef frctor.es nady to use the
power. Several persons have already
spoken to him about coming to
yvaienoo aou ouuuiug uuurmg uiiwn.
sawmills, pinning mills, etc.
' in answer to a question concerning
the railroad proposition, he said: "The
railroad business is uot bothering me.
As 1 have said befoie, us soon os we
get something for a ruilroud to come
here for, It will come. Some one will
build it. It this present company
don't, some one else wll). I predict
that the year 1897 will be a bright and
prosperous year for Wuterloo."
The latest reports from the state leg
islature state that nothing has yet been
accomplished. Yesterday 10 seuators
and 29 representatives met in joint
convention, but nothing could be done
towards electing Mitchell. The fact
that only 10 senators met with the
Benson bouse indicates that Mitchell

The program for Friday evening
was in every way a success. The ex
ercises opened with a song by a number
of small school children. Although
the little folks were somewhat timid,
they did quite well. Prayer by. Rev.
Harmon was followed by an address of
welcome. Although our city mayor is
not accustomed to public speaking, he
proved himself equal to the occasion
and gave a line address. Then fol
lowed the response by County Super
intendent Wheeler, who in a happy
vein acknowledged, in behalf of the
teachers, the hearty welcome and kind
reception by the people of Lebanon,
The public school octet, although
suffering from the effects of la grippe,
rendered a difficult piece of music in so
pleasing a manner that they were re
called, and responded by singing a
plea ing medley.
The recitations by the young lady
and little miss were quite well ren
dered. The main feature of the eveniug's
exercises was the lecture by President
H. B. Miller, of the State Agricultural
college. His theme, "Industrial Edu
cation," was one of interest to all, and
was presented lu an able manner.
The institute met at the public school
building Saturday morning at 9:30,
and was called to order by Supt.
Wheeler. After the singing of "Amer
ica," by the institute, a paper entitled
"Teaching as a Profession" was read
by Prof. Truelove. The paper showed
careful thought and preparation. Af
tei discussion by the lustitutc, the next
on the program, "A Plea For the Dull
Boy," was presented by Prof. 8. A.
Raudle. It was indeed a plea for the
slow but faithful pupil. The pro
fessor set forth the importance of
patience, tact and careful study of the
characteristics of the individual. Space
will not permit of a review of the two
excellent papers. They were well re
ceived by the institute and called forth
many favorable comments.
At 12 o'clock the institute adjourned
to meet at 1:30.
During the ufternoon session several
motions and resolutions were offered,
causing spirited discussions.
On motion, the county superintend
ent was requested to take such steps as
he may deem expedient to organize a
county teachers' institute to meet
monthly during the school year. On
motion, a committee of three (the
county superintendent to be ex-otllcio
chairman) was appointed to prepare a
program and to select a place for the
next meeting. Prof. Tyree, principal
of the Albany public schools, and Prof.
Baker, principal of the Lebanon public
schools, were appointed on said com
mittee. The attendance during both sessions
was quite good. M. A. Miller, J.B.
Thompson und other citizens were
present and participated in the dis
cussions, and all went away feeling
that the first local institute for Leba
non for the year 1897 was a success.
