While the Portland merchants are pay
ing a great deal of attention to working
up and securing a big Alaska trade, the
San Francisco drummers are invading
the territory of the Willamette valley
and getting back the business they used
to have years ago. One San Francisco
drummer recently secured orders for
$17,000 worrh of goods between McMinn
ville and Eugene. San Francisco is not
worrying about the Alaska trade. She
know s there is something more solid and
lasting nearer home. A number of Port
land men, who used to make the val
ley, have been taken off and sent north.
D. A. Snyder of Dayton certainly has
the sincere sympathy of all public spirit
ed citizens in the loss of his fruit drying
establishment by fire last Friday after
noon. Ilis plant covered nearly a quar
ter of a block, had grown to the dignity
of employing 4»0 men, and was the pridn
of Dayton and vicinity. The fire is sup
posed to have started from the furnace.
The total loss is estimated at $10,000,and
is only partially- covered by insurance.
Two thousand sacks ol onions, and one
thousand bushels of potatoes, which were
being prepared for the Alaska trade, were
destroyed, as well as almost the entire
product of dried fruit from last season’s
crop. Uertain Portland parties were in
terested with Mr. Snyder, and came in
for a share of the loss. It is to he hoped
that Mr. Snyder will endeavor tn recoup
his loss by starting anew, if not in Day
ton, in McMinnville, or lx>th, and he
should have substantial encouragement
in the undertaking.
The Dayton Herald says ; “There ap-
jiears to be general dissatisfaction as to
the manner in which the murder ol
George Sager has been treated by the
authorities. After a long delay of appar
ent ‘do nothing,’ by the proper officer,
two voting men who were suspected from
the first, were arrested, and given a trial,
but it appears that the court could
not gain evidence enough to hold the
young taea, and they were released front
custody. Those who visited the premi
ses, and some who were present at the
inquest, insist that a shrewd detective
would -oon be able to ferret out the per

It is the
gSDCral expression tba* by letting the
criminals escape without punishment,
that the county encourages crime, and
appatently invites criminals here. It is
true Mr. Sager was an obscure and poor
resident of the county, but he was hu

any human should be avenged. We
