Good roads and rural free mail deliv
ery are tilings welcomed in every rural
community. Hut without good roads
jio action will be granted rurnl free de
livery, or if it in granted, will not be
maintained if the roads ore not made
good enough to be accepted by the spe
cial fcnt whose duty it is to look after
ther.e free delivery routes. Thin special
agent in liable to come around at any
time. The roads p ilood Uiver valley
for the most part of the year are gen
erally good among the beet of any ru
ral districts but there are times' in the
winter months when they are cut into
ruts by heavy teaming or by washouts,
and if the post office inspector comet
along at such times his report might be
the means of depriving our valley of the
free delivery we now enjoy. It there
fore behooves us to Iks on our guard and
keep our roadu up to the requirement
of the service, Everybody i in favor oi
good road. Every farmer can see the
great less he is subjected to if the roads
are nof in condition for him to do bit
i:uiling at all times of the year. But
the fjuei-tion in, how are we to get good
roads and maintain them? Good roads
tire coiitly iu the first place, but not o
mostly as poor roads in the long run.
(Joed roads increase tho value of farm
ing lands more than any other cans;. II
we bad good roads leading in all direc
tions from our town for ten miles, land
ten utiles out would be nearly as val
uable as they are within a mile. Out
best apple lands are not near the town,
and they do not Pell for half lior quarter
as much as the poorest laud near town
because of tho bad roads in winter when
the apple crop must be hauled to mar
ket, In every part of the valley where
pur roads are liable to wash out or be
come impassable the material is close at
hand to make good roads. A rock
crusher, it seems to us, would be of
more value In Ilood River than u road
plow. Where the road machine can be
worked the roads are generally good
enough or so much better than are the
roads In tho rocky sections that it seems
unwise to work them while other parte
are more in need of it. Tho state road
leading from town to tho planer grows
worse from year to year, with all tho re
pairs that have been put upon It. There
is plenty of rock along this thoroughfare
that'would make good roads if the road
Led was turnpiked and topped off with
rocks that could be broken with a rock
crusher. If only a short piece of the
road could he niado each year, and made
right, it would bo much better than at
tempting to patch up the had places
over the whole road each year only to
find them worse than ever when the
season again comes for bad roads. We
all want good roads. Uov shall we get

Iti'publiean County Convention.
The Glacikh man took in the repub
lican county convention at The Dalles.
It was a full convention that is, full in
the tenso that there were very few
proxiesj the members were not full of
anything more than enthusiasm. The
Umatilla house, as usual, was the bead
quarters for caucusing and electioneer
ing on the night before the convention,
and some of the enthusiastic crowd kept
it up all night. Chairman Henry L.
Kuck of the county central committee
was elected temporary chairman of the
convention. The temporary ollicers
were made the permanent ofiicers, and
Chairman Kuck presided with dignity.
The selection of delegates to the state
and district conventions was first in or
der and the following were elected: J.S.
Schenck, II. L. Kuck, M.T. Nolan, M.I
Isenbtrg, George W. Johnston, A. Stew
art, E. L. Smith, II. C. Hooper, F. N.
Jones, C. fs. Smith. The cut-and-dried
way the republicans of Wasco county
have of electing delegate's to the state
convention seems rather arbitrary, but
it may be all right when they get used
to it. Without any previous announce
ment of u committee or caucus being
empowered to act, Hon. J. W. Morton
arose in the convention and read the
list of ten names and moved that they
be elected as Wasco county's delegation
to the state and district conventions. No
further nominations were made, and
the motion was put by the chairman,
though his own name was in the list,
and the motion carried without a dis
Next followed the nomination!) for

served the county faithfully as sheriff
for one term, was nominated for a sec

berg presented Capt. Blowers' name in
a flowery speech, during which he re
ferred iu an affecting; manner to the
passing of the Grand Armv, of which
the captain is an honored member.
0. L. Schmidt of The Dalles was nom
inated for assessor by a vote of 57, to 20
for W. II. Whipple, the present incum
bent, and 17 for J. W. Koontz. For
school superior ndent C. L. Gilbert was
renominated by- a vote of 75 to 24 for
Troy Shelley. Mr. Shelley had decided
to enter tho race only the day before the
convention, but developed considerable
strength for the short time he was in
the field. Mr. Gilbert has made nn elli
cient superintendent, and tho many
friends he has made throughout the
county will increase his handsome ma

Joseph McGuire, an, old pioneer of
Oregon and a highly esteemed resident
of Ilood River, died at his residence,
March 25, aged Ti years, 8 months -ar.d
Mr. McGuire had been sick only about
a week and his condition was not consid
ered dangerous until u day or two before
his deiith, w hich was caused by ft break
ing down of his lungs.
Mr. McGuire w as of Irish descent. He
was born at B aver Falls, Pa., July 4,
1820. In 1827 his parents moved to
Canton, Ohio, where be lived until lshi.
In early life he worked in his father

immigration that reached the Willam

its, well informed in general matters,,
highly honorable in his business deal
ings, and sincerely respected as a neigh
bor and friend. The day before his
death he settled every iteni of business
that remained unsettled and gave mi
nuto directions respecting his funeral.

pioneer affairs, and less than one year
ago was the prime mover in bringing
about the organization of the "Hood
