Matters and things are coming our way, aud the fact that McMinnville is year­
ly becoming more and more a factor in the affairs of the state, is apparent to the
most unobserving. The college is concerned in the latest achievement, and the
winning of the oratorical medal by W. Lair Thompson at Monmouth was the oc­
casion for the most unbounded enthusiasm on his return home. He was given a
free ride from the depot to the postotiice on the shoulders of his fellow-students.
The Baptist church was well filled Monday evening at the public reception and
college rally which was held in honor of the victor. Much enthusiasm was mani­
fested and a very pleasant evening enjoyed. The program, which of necessity was
extempore to a great extent, was an honor to the college and all who took part.
Just before the opening of the program the students of the college marched in and
occupied seats reserved for them, and with the college colors and yells did honor
to the new victor. President Boardman presided at the meeting. The program
opened with a piano duet by Mrs. Annie Evenden and Miss Maud Hobbs, which
met with hearty applause. Prayer was offered by Rev. J. Hoberg. Mayor Malo­
ney was then introduced, and in behalf of the city of McMinnville expressed in a
forcible and humorous way his faith in the college. Rev. A. J. Hunsaker spoke

in behalf of the board of trustees, and expressed his pride in the honor just won
by a grandson of the founder oi the institution. Mr. Lyman Latourette, of the
class of 1894, spoke in behalf of the alumni, in congratulating the college and Mr.
Thompson on the victory. Mr. Chas. Galloway, who won the same honor for the
college in February, 1896, shed tears in sympathy for the University of Oregon, his
alma mater, in its defeat, but expressed his pride in the victory as au old student
of the college and a resident of McMinnville.
A beautiful piano quartet was
played by Mrs. Evenden, Miss Crawford, Miss Latourette and Miss Hobbs. Mr.
Jamie McKillop recited a parody on Tennyson’s “Charge of the Light Brigade,”
which did honor to the occasion.
The principal attraction of the evening was the prize oration delivered by Mr.
Thompson. It was listened to with marked attention. Mr. Thompson’s-thoughts
are quite.clear, expressed in good language, and uttered with force. He began by
referring’to our late war with Spain aud to the fact that the world is rife with war.
This led to a consideration of our national policy, which has ever been expansion.
He met the argument that our policy has been moulded by accident by referring
to our past history with special stress on the days of the revolution. Of course our
policy has changed as it applies to details, but not in its main objects of attain­
ment. Our nation has been developed on the principle of expansion. Expansion
is not imperialism. Imperialism is despotism, while expansion is the expression
of the rule of the people. Our country has never taken a forward step except as
the people led in the movement. This has always been our policy, and now we
I must either advance or retreat. To advance we must leave the continent. A call
comes from God and from an enslaved people, demanding that we carry our civil­
ization to others. This call we must obey. Expansion as it is now discussed ap­
plies to the Philippine islands. Several reasons were given showing why we should
aeep these islands. It will give us the means of maintaining our position among
the nations. We must have a doorway to the orient. Our commercial interests
make the same demand. Morality demands retention also. If we abandon them,
they will become the seat of a contention which shall last for years, and which
will result in a worse state than they were when under the rule of Spain. We
must eliminate the present evils and give them our civilization. Our jiolicy has
always been expansion and must always continue so if we are to develop and be of
greatest service to the world.
At the close of the oration President Boardman spoke of the advantages of
such a victory to the college ami city, and appealed for aid from the people to fos­
ter the oratorical spirit 111 the college by raising$500 for a permanent fund, and the

Victory,” and sung to the air of “We Won t Go Home Till Morning,” was given

The Cured Fruit Association of the Pa­
cific northwest came into legal existence
tn Portland last week. It was fully in­
corporated, electors chosen, stock sub­
scribed and plans for work formulated.
Its final success now depend* entirely
upon support given by the many small
growers. .Many large prune orChardists
are represented in the organization, and
are almost a unit for co-operation.

the Pacific northwest is organized, abeo-

lutely and completely, its present exis­
tence is in a measure an experiment.
The electors and officers now chosen are
not expected to perform the vast work of
marketing the crop, should the associa­
tion be in Hltape for the coming season.
They are instructed to organize the cam­
paign to get the growers into line, and
when all the districts ate fully repre­
sented and time has been spent in de­
liberating over the capacity of officers,
lite executive force ot the association,
who are to handle its business affairs,
will be named. Fourteen of the 16 di­
rectors have been named, and these di­
rectors have all power iu their keeping ;
but wheu the annual meeting in June is
called, it is the purpose to name .& new
set of officers throughout, that the full­
est opportunity may be given all grow­
ers to have a voice.
lion. Wm. Galloway of this county
was chosen president, than whom fruit­
growers could have found no greater en­
thusiast or harder worker in the cause.
He is also chairman of the board of di­
rectors. J. H. Fletcher, of Vancouver is
first vice-president, J. P. McMinn of
Walla Walla is second vice-president,
Henry E. Doach of Portland is secretary,
Wilbur K. Newell of Dilley is treasurer,
W. W. Cotton of Portland is consulting
attorney, and C. E. Stuart of Medford,
A. C. Churchill of Newberg, and C. R.
Stucad of Blulock, Wash., together with
the first vice-president and president,
constitute the executive committee.
Ttio conveution resolved itself into a

progressed so well that more than
