A "Itoast" for "Verdant."
Hood River, Oregon, January 31, 1903.
Editor Glacier: In this week's Gla
cier "Verdant" gives me a little roast
on the water question. When he .states
that I made a motion to "pass first
reading without reference or amend
ment," he utters a malicious untruth.
The motion to pass first reading is
simply to say that the council will con
sider the ordinance and after the motion
is carried, the mayor will refer it to the
proper committee. As I did not care
what committee he referred it to, I did
not include any reference to a commit
tee in my original motion, but as a
brother councilman wanted to refer it
to a particular committee, I accepted
his amendment. The time to amend is
after first reading, and I stated to the
chairman of the committee to which it
was referred that 1 would not vote for
the ordinance( until several objection
able features were changed.
In all places the anonymous letter
writer is the most contemptible creature,
but if I was as ignorant of legislative
proceedings as "Verdant," I too might
be too cowardly to sign my name to an
attack on a fellow citizen,: Section 102
of the city charter practically prohibits
the city f rom putting ip its own water
works, but if "Verdant" wants the char
ter changed why does he not take the
necessary steps to have it changed. But
that would disclose his identity. A man
who claims he is the people should have
the courage to come out in the open.
In the three years "Verdant" has been
in our midst, he has always tried to run
the town.
I am afraid "Verdant" is interested
in something he wants to unload on the
town. G. J. Gessunq.

drawn from his own personal opinion.
Now, as a rule, the American people

you to investigate our standing then

tribute to Robert Burns.
Washington, January 23. Senator
George F. Hoar of Massachusetts de
livered a scholarly and exceptionally
interesting lecture this evening at All
Souls' church on Robert Burns. Sena
tor Hoar spoke in the highest terms
not only of Burns himself, but of all
the Scottish people. He compared the
Scots constantly with the people of
New England. He spoke of their rug
ged characters and traits in common.
Senatiir Hoar characterized Robert
Burns as the best-known character in
history or literature. No educated
man, woman or child, where the En
glish language is spoken, he declared,
was unfamiliar with the poems of
Burns. His fame circles the earth like
a parallel of latitude, his words are
known by heart by couutless thousands.
Mr. Hoar spoke of the peculiar fitness
of certain languages to convey certain
meaniDgs. No fitter vehicle for the
pathos, the emotions, the tender senti
ment" and sympathy, the wit and
humor of Burns could possibly be found
thau the lowland Scotch.
The speaker declared that David
might have written bis psalms, Solo
mon his proverbs and Aesop his fables
iu lowland Scotch and they could only
have been the better for it. He spoke
of the value of rhythm and said Burns
was a master of it. Burns had a re
markable gift of humor.
Mr. Hoar told of an Englishman who
once declared it would take a surgical
instrument to get a joke Into the head
of a Scotchman, when a Frenchman
nearbv replied: "Yes, an English
Mr. Hoar said that with all due re
spect to the English humorists of all
ages, aud with all due respect to a race
from which he immediately descended,
he must say that ' if there is one man
above another to whom humor does
not appeal it is the ordinary English
man. "Do not be so sure, my sanctimoni
ous friend," continued the senator,
"that Burns' life was not a gay life in
any sense. God gave him his choicest
gifts. He gave him humor and a ten
der, pitying heart. In him there
dwelt in close relationship the fount
ain of laughter aud the fountain of
"God gave him the love of flowers,
of birds, of home, of father, of mother,
of woman and child, and country.
Would any one dare to say that the
poems which have brought so much
cheer to humanity through all these
ages brought none to the author? I
say Burns was no figure of sorrow or
despair, but one of glory and joy. God
gave him thousands of golden hours,
each one an age in itself. What toil
and hardships would we go through
today to thiuk the thoughts of Burns?
He was a noble lover and a noble hater,
the hatred being born of love.
"He loved Scotland, he loved her
flowers, be loved the hills, he loved
justice, liberty and humanity. He
hated the things that were enemies or
these. He hated arrogance aud cruel
ty, self-righteousness, pride of rank,
bigotry, tyranny. That these things
do not exist as much today as they did
in the time of Burns is due as much as
any other influence to his writings."
Senator Hoar spoke of the great work
Burns had done for Scotland. He said
he would be disloyal, however, to a
favorite author if he did not give
Walter Scott a share in the achieve
ments. The names of Burns and Scott
are eternally linked, he declared.
These two immortal spirits made of
their country another Greece, ot their
capital another Athens. Ihey dwell
in mighty companionship now and
Glad to Get Back.
The editor of the Salem Journal re

He is glad to get home, and in express
ing his gladness, says :
"Only a person who has been sub

something that tingles with ice, and the
wind cuts you like a knife, can appreci

The Country Telephone.
By Etgr L. Hampton, In the Seattle Mail
and Herald.
In the West the country telephone is
a new thing. As a matter of fact it is
not more than a few vears old in any
part of this country. Within ten years
its value has become recognized iu a few
sections of the East, and it. has now
come to stay in the New West.
During the week of holidays just past,
I was in the city of Portland, Oregon,
and in several of the smaller towns that
the hand of thrift aud enterprise has
sown so thickly and so well along the
two banks of the Willamette river. In
these smaller towns and in the country
round about I became somewhat con
versant with the history and some of
the intricacies of the country telephone.
lhe idea of. a country system oi
phones originated in the New West, first
among the thriving business men of
iSewberg, Oregon, a town ot i.ouu in
habitants or thereabouts, situated on
the west bank of the Willamette river,
twenty-three miles from Portland.
It was the outgrowth of a bluff on the
part of that well-known, soulless corpo
ration, The Pacific States Telephone and
Telegraph Co., known in Seattle as the
Sunset Telephone Co. The business
men of Newberg called the bluff.
To begin with there was the Willam
ette Telephone Co., a small long-distance
concern connecting the county seat of
Yamhill county with Portland. This
company placed a few phones in each
town through which it passed, and it
thus placed a few phones in Newberg.
As the town grew in importance there
was a demand for more phones, and the
Bell company came along and put in a
system, charging a rental of $1.00 per
month for resident, and for business
phones, $1 50 per month.
But the country round about New
berg is very populous with small ranches
and gardens, dairy and fruit farms.
There was a necessity for a better and
closer means of communication between
these country people and the town mer
chants. Therefore the merchants united
with 'he country people in requesting
the Bell Telephone Co. to put in a coun
try system.
Of course the Bell company refused,
laughing at the idea. In fact it laughed
once too often. For the merchants, be
coming vexed at its sneers and its gen
eral demeanor, called a public meeting,
formed an organization, elected officers,
incorporated under the laws of the state,
secured a franchise and subscribed
money for a telephone system of their
own, Doth country and city, similar to
the one known to be in successful opera
tion in some Eastern states. This is the
story of the beginning of the first coun
try telephone system, so far as I know,
in the Pacific Northwest.
Its history from its inception, twelve
months ago is most interesting. I regret
that space prevents my telling it here
at greater length.
Of course the Bell company put in a
competitive line in the country forth
with ; and with great bluff and bluster
put men forth into the country districts
to install telephones, using the argu
ment that all the merchants in Newberg
had the Bell 'phone and only a few had
the "home" 'phone a statement that
could not be denied. And of course,
then, a mass meeting was called of the
patriotic town people and all the Bell
phones in the city were ordered out in
one day ; just as might have been expec
ted of any plucky country town. '
The one card held by the Bell com
pany was the fact that the Bell 'phone
people had persuaded the railroad to re
fuse to put the "Home" 'phone in the
local railway station. Here was a des
perate strait I But it was speedily rem
edied when all the merchants of the
town, without a word of .explanation,
began to ship their freight back and
forth by river. Thus the hand of the
plucky country people was on the throat
of the monopoly ; and it is the first in
stance outside of the Bible, wherein two
have successfully put ten thousand to
As for the Newberg Telephone com
paayif the best reports may be credited
it is as well established and firmly fixed
as Gibraltcr. Its example has inspired
a spirit of emulation in other towns, and
at least half a dozen towns in the valley
have already put in similar systems,
each towii running its own line out half
way to meet its neighbor; go that they
are joined together by the local tele
phone system all over the valley. Dif
ferent localities have also formed small
companies, running their lines in to
meet the switch boards in the several
towns. Seven of such lines run into the
little town of Newberg, at an expense of
less than $3.00 per phone por year. In
this way at least two thousand square
miles of the beautiful fertile Willamette
valley are made a network of telephone
The valley women sell their eggs over
the telephone. Farmers residing up
under the brow of Chehalem mountain
telephone their banker about overdrafts.

iui inaiuH in open uayugnt, unmoicsiea,
hiding their blushing cheeks in the
shadow of the friendly receiver, while
they pour out to the listening telephone
the utmost longings ol their hearts; and
many a warm good-night kiss has gone
pulsating, by telcphono, over the blue
ridges of the Willamette valley in the
silent, purple hours of twilight.
