Official Paper of Jackson County.
Sintered ae second-cUsa matter at

March , 1878.

A comparison of. tlio cost of con
dueling tho business of the circuit
court of Jackson county with that of.
l.nno county shows that the budget
for tho circuit court of Lane, based
on the nverogo cost of conducting the
same, is $17,800, ns against $7500
for Jackson county.
Last year, -with the November term
of court included, tho samo being one
of tho largest criminal calendars in
tho history of tbo county, tho cost in
Jackson county was only $7343.28.
With only n difference of $2,000,
000 in tho assessed valuation and a
Kiniilnr volume of business transact
ed by the courts, tho showing is most
remnrknble for economy and reflects
great credit on Circuit Judge Calk
ins and District Attorney Kelly,
4VtIIE way to resume, is to resume," said John Sher-
- man, dismissing the resumption of specie payments.
Tho way to bring prosperity is to start, something and
start it at onec.
Medford lacks payrolls and industries. The way to get
them is to go after them. They are worth the effort. They
will not come without it.
"Sitting tight," fault-finding, bickering, knocking
never got anybody or any community anywhere.
The way to get tilings is to go after them and go at
once. Hibernating never built a city.
McClclfcm tried to end the civil war by a campaign of
"masterly inactivity." Some of our citizens employ the
same strategy in community building with similar re
sults. Tho valley has the opportunity of securing a beet sugar
factory provided proper effort is made. If ever a coun
try needed such an enterprise it is this section. It can bo
had for the effort.
Medford has the opportunity of securing a lumber mill
ana box laetory, with a little co-operative effort, that will
furnish payroll and stop the continual needless drain of
mono' out oL tho community by developing a natural re
source. Tho county needs irrigation. "Water will double the
value of land by increasing production. Capitalists stand
ready to make the investment, providing land-owners and
speculators quit marking time and advance with co-operative
No community was ever built up by mail order business
by trading stamps, by "scrip," by store lotteries, which
drain ;the cash out. The first requisite is to supply indus
tries which enable the people to get the money and then
to keep the money at home by patronizing those industries.
Everyone admits that development is needed and
should be under way. The way to begin it is to start some
thing, and the time to begin is now.

To tho Public:
In the editorial column of the Mail
Tribune of tho ltith inst. tho editor
makes a most unfair criticism of my
article on the Medford charter, mak
ing it nppenr that I was antagonistic
to nil recent comers from the eat,
which is entirely wrong, ns any fair
minded render will readily see. Jly
criticisms only applied to those men
outsido the city limits who havo es
sayed to formulate a charter for the
cople of the city of Medford who live
within the city limits, thoso men I
called wise men from the cast, be
cause they are wise only in their own
conceit, and to only that class of men
did I apply the cognomen of "wise
men from tho cast," nnd anyone who
considers themselves in that class can
tnko ray strictures to themselves
without any evasion or mentnl reser
vation whatever. Worthy men from
the cast or any other section have al
ways been most heartily welcomed by
myself and our community, and there'
wns never n newcomer who enmo to
mo nt niy office or otherwise asking
for information, but what I always
gave him nil tho information I pos
sessed on the subject nsked for, free
of charge nnd with pleasure.
We do want easterners to come
hero nnd advertise and send booklets
telling of all our advantages nnd
carefully concealing tho disadvan
tages, and many come nnd are pleas
ed, and many come and are dissatis
fied and claim that the wholo truth
hnd not been told them. Many come
here nnd build railroads and invest in
other" industries, not for any grcnt
philanthropic motives, but to get bet
ter returns for their money than they
could in tho cast. Many come here
whoso life experiences havo been con
fined to tho limited area of their vis
ual horizon, and within those narrow
confines nil that is worth knowing
hnd been learned; those people are
wise in their own conceit, and expect
to come hero as a kind of missionar
ies to teach nn ignorant and rustic
population things they hud never
heard of before and in tho meantime
to exploit them to u finish. Such
people generally find after a few
years that the unsophisticated coun
try man has tho money they brought
here, and they themselves have the
The editor says the pioneers took
out over one hundred millions from
our mines, nnd what did they do with
itf Tho fact is that tho most reli
able htntistics show that about forty
millions in gold wero taken from the
mines in southern Oregon up to date,
and that five millions were spent try
ing to get more gold und five millions
by those who choso to remain hore
were spent in subduing tho Indians
and in reclaiming tho county and
transforming it to a great nnd civ
ilized commonwealth us it is today.
The other thirty millions wero carried
away by tho transient population who
camo to loot our natural treasure
house. He says in his editorial that our
present civilization is as deficient as
the original aboriginal civilization
that the pioneers found, which we
resent ns false in every particular.
The pioneer population was composed
of tho cream of civilization, enter
prise and intelligence from all por
tions of the United States. Such
peoplo as U. S. Hayden and tho Hoff
mans from Baltimore, the Ishes from
Virginia and from New England, from
tho middle states and from the south
enmo tho Beckmuns, Camerons, Mc
Cullys, llanleys, Kennies, tho Ooro,
Judge Primm, and further up the val
ley, the Culvers, the Ontnmus, Ander
sons, Hills. Dunn, Ilusxels, Jesse
Houck, tho Wagners, Applegntcs, nnd
further north, the Colvigs, the lhrds
cys nnd all over the vnllcy many more
just as worthy nnd noted, which
spneo will not allow me to enumerate
further, nnd from nowhere in tho
United States could bo found any
higher type of civilization than that
represented by the above type of citi
zens, nor hnvo we in any manner de
generated. Year by year we have
been receiving from tho older states
accessions of the same high standard
of people by which, now ns ever, we
have maintained a high state of civ
ilization not surpassed by any com
munity in tho United States: in fact.
the only savage we havo left among
us is my able, but misguided friend,
George Putnam, who on tho lenst
provocation puts pn his war paint,
grabs his tomahawk and with his
scalping knife between his teeth
starts out to cxtcrminnto all who op
pose him. Nevertheless we liko him
and can't spare him, but like any
other bnd boy, needs calling down
sometimes. If he was liko his distin
guished ancestor, General Putnam,
who rode his charger full speed down
the stone steps of nn eastern town to
call his countrymen to arras to resist
the nionnrchial one-man power which
menaced their liberties; if our George
were tme to the honored traditions of
his ancestors he would come out and
ride rough-shod over the obnoxious
charter which seeks to impose the
some one-man power over us that
threatened his ancestors.
Of nil of twenty-one commissioners
who formulated this new charter, nt
least twenty of them could not state
three of the provisions of the present
ehnrtcr which they would set nsido.
