pcr Dick Donald a $5000 fMc bet, If
lie doesn't ujt up thti $5000 that he

never not a chance to step itito tho
ring with the champion. This was
the ultimatum delivered today by
Manager Billy Kolan of the Itttchte
Stung by Donald's torried iutor

his prohablo rival for July -1, Joe
Jiivcri, with cowanliev, Nolan camo
back today and asserted that the Van
conrrer boy would et n match pro
vided ho won a few moro matches
from k0O'1 cn and tested his $5000
with homo reliable etakchpldcr.
Nolan waxed facetious and then
wrathful a hen ho replied to Donald's
taunts in tho following btittcmcitt:
"So Dickie w ore becnu-o his boy

They are rated by performances. If
Andcrnon is the card that our heart
broken Dick wixhe us to believe, it
doct not reflect much credit on the
manager to lit till t'f these opportuni
ties elide by. It is trC feoino boy
are nlu-ayi thought veil of when
climbing tho lndilor of pugilistic fume,
but it is homcYthat different with
tho man who has to put up the money
for th.o fighters the promoter. He
is the man to judge attractions,
purses nud the coin is what make
'Wheu men lire sincere nbout back
ing n boxer for a side stake, tho coin
is iRisU'd with reliable stakeholders
and there is no windjnraming bluffs
of posting coin with the money lack
ing when the time comes for uctiou.
"I would udisQ the manager of the
Vancouver boy if ho can secure back
ing to post it uhero it can bo reached.
Such bluffs as this have been
heralded by every boxer in the coun
try. A good manager of u fighter
like the salesman who handles a goad
lino of merchandise, nniht rouio up
t( tho standard or ho is n counter
feiter. The manager or tho Bed
ford hoy knows hit challenges to Hit
chio tiro useless, as tho champion
could not, if ho would, battle any
other than Uivors and WcMi until
after September. If Anderson wins
n few more battles from good men,
wo will take him on und another thing
to make it u certainty, will insist that
ho make a side bet or ho won't get a

"Now for n few reasons why pro
moters still think and refuse to
imitch Anderson with the champion,
niters knocked Drown out inside of
ten rounds. It took Anderson a
twenty-round battle and uuolhei
fourteen to gain n decision over Kayo.
That is cuough, to bhow who is the
better man. Mnndot was pn.t out
cold by Leach Cross in six or seven
rounds. It took tho Medford hoy
twelve rounds, fin this should bo
enough to give tho manager of the
Medford lud n clear lino on his pio
tege. '"Tho truth nt times is painful to
hear when it is founded on fact, not
on wild oiitbuir.th of hilarious inin

In conclusion nothing would suit mo
hotter than to hnvo Hitchio meet nny

nt ruction to bo limdo undot' fodernl sunervision. Tho host
feature Is that tho roads are to bo maintained indefinitely
by the government.
A year ago congress passed tho Bourne bill appro
printing $500,000 for postal road improvement in tho
United States. Oregon's share, of tho fund was $10,000.
The. first net of tho newly oleoted county court last autumn
was to formally apply for the diversion of the npproprin
(ion to Jnekson county and through the eo-onerntion of
Qovornor West, the appropriation was secured lor 50 miles
of postal highway.
Some three or four months nco, 13. II. Ilurrill, senior
United States highway engineer, went over the county
roads with tho county court, selected tho route, and rec
ommended the expenditure, stating that conditions for
highway improvement and niaintainauco wore idetd. Jlis
report met approval by the Washington authorities, tho
contract. has been signed, and work will soon be under way.
Thcso highways will bo the first to bo improved by fed
eral authorities in Oregon. They will present an object
lessum to the state in bunding
This is merely the beginning or icderal aided Highways.
Tjiriro nimifmrinf ions are looked for from tho present and
future congresses for extension of tho work ami tlnckson
county must bo prepared to tauo nut advantage ot uppm
tuuUfes that may be offered.
As soon as the new law goes into effect, petitions should
hn f.irrMilntod nskiiii? the county court to call a bond elec
tion for highway improvement. Although the amount of
muuey tluit can, be jrajsed js but half ot what the people
voted two years go, still there, will be funds enough to con

Wo hear a deal of talk about civic
rlKhtoousness and social saltation
Whatever men may mean oy tneso
terms. If any ono hopes to see tho
city ana tho community made right
eous without the regeneration of the
Individual, he Is dreaming a dream
which will nover be reallxed.
No man can turn over his con
science to a corporation, or a union,
or a chnrch, or a priest and escape
personal accountability. Every man
must give account of himself to Gad.
Hack has his own'contclcnco to keep,
his own soul to' save.
In this day ot unions and corpora
tions and combines, wo nro in grcit
dinger of loglng our en.so of porson
al responsibility. It seems to bo a
slow process to mako a nation good
by making Individuals good, wo must
bo patient, for It Is tho only way.
Tho prophets did preach rtghlcaijs-
ncss to the. pities and tha nqtlons,
but they also aimed their messapo
against too tinriBWcottriejs ot in
dividuals. 'Thou art tho man," was
tho sermon of Nathan to David."
"Thou art weighed In tho balances
and found wanting,," was tha Inter
pretation of tho handwriting on tha
wal. "Tho soul that slnneth It snail
dlo." is tha law of Cod.
A man may h.Mc In tho mass from
tho law of tha land; ho may no
swallowed up by a corporation or a
union so that tho law cannot detect
his guilt, but ho cannot hide fnP!
Ood. Ho knows tho exact degrco or
guilt upon tha comsclencp Pf cuch In
dividual. Men cannot mix things up
si that tho Almighty cannot unravel
tnom. A man may dccclvo tho
church, ho may deceive tho commu
nity, bo may deceive tho court, he
may deceive his own family, ho may
deceive liliimelf, but ho cannot do
celvo God. "God is not mocked."

pentance. Nu man who has cone
wrong can get right without a chango
of mind and heart. Ho Is dealing
with God who lookoth on tho heart
Making things right outwardly Is not
enough. Tho trouble Is Inward. Out
of tho heart conn all tho ovlls wo see
and nil wo do. Tho fountain Is
there. Only God enn mako the heart
right. Men may holp us to soltlo our

only God can see tho heart. God It

An unrighteous man vitiates his
citizenship. Ho may hold an Impor

sion of patriotism, but his sins wit-,
ncss against him. Sin Is a reproach
to any peopto and tho Individual who
Indulges In it is an Injury to his
community. Ho is helping on tho
decay of his country. No matter
what his services, they are moro thnn
outweighed by tho emanations of an
evil heart and life. The times call
for personal righteousness, Tho
worst symptom of social conditions
Is when men tolcrato wrong nnd con
sent to a reign ot dishonesty and In
justice. It is tlmo to think when
wickedness saysJ "Whnt aro you
going to do about It?" and tho moral
resentment of men Is stltlod. Moral
rottenness has reached Its full when
a complacent public tolerates It. Tho
land is troubled. There Is unreal
