tempting to struggle tlirough the
storm to their homes front the taber
nacle where they' had listened last
evening to a sermon by Hilly Sunday,
the ox-hall player-evangelist, two
men perished early today and sev
eral wcro badly froxen.
Wheii dawn broko 2000 oncn, wo
men nnd children wcro still storm
bound in tho tabernacle.
Thoso who died wcro C. D. Wheele

aged men. Whccloreck was over

tabernacle, collapsed lu a drllt and
sank Into his last sleep, llaslas
had covered ten blocks before he fell
Tho tabcrnaclo Is In a somewhat
Isolated placo In tho outskirts of
town. Thrco thousand people had
assembled In It to hear Sunday last
night. Tho blizzard broke suddenly
and with almost Incrodlblo violence.
At the services' conclusion they
found tho streetcars already out of
commission. For those who choso
to lcnvo tho building there1 was noth
ing to do but walk.
Two thirds of tho congregation
preferred to remain In tho bis
building over night. Of the thous
and or so who left, even of those
who reached their homes safely, nono
escaped a terrible struggle.
To thoso who remained, food and
coffee wcro served at midnight and
again this morning. Warm clothing
was taken to them and men were
working to open u path for them to
lcnvo by In tho course of the day.
Tho drifts were mountainous, the
air was filled with stinging snow, tho
wind was blowing a hurrlcano and
tho cold was intense.

Mr, Thco. Dosch,
My dear Sir:
I want to acknowledge with thanks
tho receipt of your little circular ou
Soluble Sulphur Compound nud tho
letter accompanying It.
Last year wo tried this Soluble
Sulphur Compound In comparison
with hoiuumudo llino sulphur and
with other commercial liquid llmo
sti phur brands which wo have here
tofore been using during recent
year.), A comparison shows that
your sulphur compound applied dur
ing tho summer for fungous diseases
was entirely as efficacious last year
ns wore tho homomado brands or the
brands which are shipped In liquid
form to us. In fact the results of
all thico types of llmo sulphur wee
cmiitlully the samo and equally sat
isfactory in tho control of tipple scab
and other fuufous diseases In the ex
periment station orchard.
Wo havo received a few inquiries
thlssprlug from Missouri orchardlscs
us for our Judgment of this soluble
llmo sulphur and stating that if it
waa as efficacious as llmo sulphur
shipped lu liquid form, they wanted
to use It to save freight. In each
case wo havo anado reply lu words
osfcentlnlly tho samo as I havo given
you In this letter.
Very truly yours,
J. C, WniTTKX.

BILLY SUNDAY TALK
DON'T WANT IT HERE
IN hfplying to the Mail
county's proposed road
.Journal resorts to falsehood
launches into an ill-natured and uncalled-tor attack upon
.Jackson county and its credit in tho follewing:
The Medford paner has a hahlt of ndvoeatlnii even thing to which .
bond issuo Is nttnehed. The results of this polio, concurred lu bv tho
people, Ik that Jackson county Is head over IicoIh In debt, and hit exper
ienced during tho pan two enrs tho worst finnnclal sluing of any section
of Oregon. And talking about experimenting with road building! Jack
son county not over thrco or four jctirs ago, macadamized tho Medford
Ccntral 1'olut road, awarding the contract to Twohy Urns., nt $12,000 n
mile. The Mali Tithuue was tho principal champion of this improvement,
probably because It meant a continuation of that temporary prosperity
that comes from the spending of bond money.
At the present tlmo the blanket bond Issue of $."00,000 voted by Jack
son county contemplates the rebuilding of the .Moitford-i'ontral Point
road 'at n greater cost, the $12,000 a mile macadam confirm tlon lmvlit
lasted but throe years.
Kvldently n little more of tho hard business sense of the WlUninet'o
valley mofsbnek would be a good thing It transplanted In the Itogiio river
valley. Down there nt the present time tho principal Industry Is that ot
selling bonds to eastern purchasers nnd spending the money tor Imhilc
Improvements of moro or less doubtful vnltie.
This might be construed as argument by the niossbaek
mind, if true but it isn't. The .Mail Tribune has no apol
ogies to offer for its advocacies. Tt fearlessly speaks for
what it deems the best interests of the community. It has
advocated but two bond issues county highway and mun
icipal gravity water, both business enterprises. Lond is
sues have not put Jackson county "head over heels" in
debt nor did they cause a financial slump during the past
Jackson county's indebtedness is due solely to 'pursu
ing the policy the enterprising Capital Journal is advocat
ing building experimental highways piecemeal by direct
taxation under the supervisoral system. Had the same
money been available through a bond issue for expenditure
under skilled state supervision, which niossbaek legisla
tion hitherto prevented, we would have had more to show
for the money expended. lOven as it is. Jackson county
roads are as much better than those of the Willamette
valley as its climate is superior.
The Mail Tribune never championed the macadamiz
ing of the Central Point road. It did champion the hard
surface paving of the thoroughfare, contract for which
was let and forfeited. Nor did this stretch of macadam
cost $12,000 per mile, though it did cost $8000 nearly as
much as cement pavement costs. It is as good as any mac
adam road in the country, but, like all such highways, in
volves a large maintenance expense, but is good indef
initely. It is the experience acquired by Jackson county
that proves the wisdom of abandoning the old methods and
adopting the new possible only b bond issues.
For the benefit of the Salem paper, it can be truthfully
stated that Jackson county is in better shape financially
than for three years, that its credit is nrst class, that its
highway bonds brought the highest premium offered for
such securities in three veal's, and that in spite of its in
debtedness its warrants are at par.
The "business sense of the Willamette valley moss
back," which is typified in raising hops and forbidding
the sale of hop products, which is satisfied with the capital
city's drinking sewerage, the penny-wise-and-pound-fool-ish
policy that contentedly wallows through seas of mire
called roads, is not needed in the Uogue Iliver valley
