Newberg is the place for a county
dr. They do not in ike a practice ol
'gouging” everybody down there, like
they did at the so called “County Mc
Minnville Fair."— Lafayette Register
Bay, brother, did you lose somo money
betting on Buckskin? Please explain
iiow you g«»t “gouged.” We quite agree
with the brother, that Newberg is the
place lor a county fair, She has had
several very successful ones heretofoie,
and will doubtless have several again.
But wo expect McMinnville, North
Yam hill ami other tow ng to exhibit like
local enterprise. No one ever supposed
Lafayette, would attempt any such
thing. She scarcely has energy enough
to "gouge” • good pip..- into existence.
T1 m third convocati on of Indian Wa
Veterans which is to be held in Portland
the 14th of next month, will be the moat
interesting one yet held. The Mechan
ics pavilion has been secured in which
these men who did honor to their coun
try, are to meet, and invitations to sev
eral of the members have been extend
ed who had accepted, and will speak.
A feature of Pioneer day will be the pa-
rude of these battered and worn and
true men of the country. Tl.eir step
will not boas in the .lavs of yore, but
as they stey into line, the same love <>l
country will swell their breasts and
animato their hearts.
It seems now as if a little light had
begun to penetrate the traitorous old
skull of lelF Davis. At a reception given
him at Meridian, Mississippi the oilier
day, he made the following remarks,
regarding our union : “United you are
now, and if the Union is ever to be bro
ken let the other side break it. The army
of the south will shine forever around
the camp flies and will still shine to our
children and their children. Tho truths
we fought for shiil.l not encourage you to
ever tight again, but keep your word in
good cr evil. God bless you all.”
Documents have been unearthed tn
the office of the Register of Deeds in
Wisconsin, which shows Daniel Webster
once owned 3,000 acres of land tn that
state, embracing part of the piescnt
site of the city of Madison, and that he
was inlersted in a scheme locating in
that county, on the banka of the Wis
consin river, a city which should in
time be the metropolis of the west. He
however, got more deeply interested in
other matters and disposed of his inter
ests there before the prospective metrop
olis was ever started.
Mr. Crocker says that the C & O will
be completed to the state line by the 1st

made in the completion of the tunnels;
that upon completion through trains

cause decided improvement in values
throughout western Oregon and predicts

D ear S iu :—Last week I arrived
in McMinnville fully prepared to
open a Drug Store in yourenterpris
ing city, but after looking the field
over, I was convinced that it would
be suicidal for me to embark in
trade where there is a buiness house,
so disgustingly aggressive and so
lost to the interests of other houses
as one you have located in your
city. It is with surprise and
chagrin that I notice that this par
ticular house is steadily increasing
its number of customers day after
day, by employing methods that
would make it very uncomfortable
for me, if I were in busiuess here.
Just as it now does for competing
establishments who are striving to
combat the evil. I refer to G eo .

The grand jury of Polk county, after
an investigation of the charges against
John D. Belt, postmaster of McCoy, for
selling liquor without license, returned
“not a true bill.” This ends the law
suits in which .Mr. Belt has been involv
ed, all on account of his having become
a “government Nashy.” The case of
young Thurman, charged with horse
stealing, which was set for trial Friday,
was continued until next term. Thur
man furnished bonds, and is at liberty.
