Want Connection wills the County
Fassengers w ho have occasion to pass
to and from McMinnville make a good
deal of complaint about the poesibilities
of public conveyance since the Southern
Pacific has refused to carry passengers
on the noon mixed train. The accomo
dations in the way of making connec
tions were [>oor enough before and they
are worse now. It is the wonder of the
public that the railroad people persist in
keeping up that six or eight miles of
track between Lafayette and Whiteson
and an expensive bridge over the Yam
hill. when all this might be saved by
cutting across to St. Joe, and at the
same time giving all the lower part of
the county a chance to get to the county
seat by rail without change of cars.
Somebody might w hisper such a sugges
tion in the ears of the Southern Pacific
people and see what effect it would have.

THE SHELDON DAILY
The much talked-about Topeka Daily
Capital, under the editorial management
of Kev. Chas. M. Sheldon, has been re
ceived by the local subscribers this week.
This is the daily that was edited as Mr.
Sheldon thought Jesus would edit a pa
(>er. and in view of this idea some de
scription of its contents may interest
readers of The Reporter. The special
issue is said to have been over one mil
lion copies, and was so large that one
part of the edition was published in
New York city, another in Chicago and
another at Topeka, in order to perform
the work without delay. The subscrip
tion list included the name of Paul Kru
ger, Pretoria, South Africa. The quality
of the paper used was poor, and the size
was a seven-column eight-page. Sixty-
three men constituted the force issuing
the paper at Topeka. All of them who
used tobacco, gave up the habit not only
for the week but promised to for all time.
In the first issue a morning p.-ayer and
four leading articles make up the first
page. The first is devoted to the famine
in India, an appeal being made to Chris
tians to donate relief; the second to
“Militarism," au article by a Baltimore
physician, who contends that the war
evil is a "disease epidemic in all lati-
tildes;” the third is a column and a half
symposium on the prohibitory law, and
the fourth is a letter to Mr. Sheldon from
the Y. M. C. A. at Denver asking for aid
to build a home for consumptives.
These four articles he regarded as more
vital than England’s warning to other
|>owers to keep hands off; greater than
the situation in Kentucky ; the discovery
of more cases of bubonic plague in San
Francisco; the day in the senate, etc.
It is substantially a religious daily. Tbe
idea was paramount of making church
articles supreme over telegraph news.
No advertisements of tobacco, whisky,
theaters, patent medicines or corsets
were admitted. Liquor cure advertise
ments were thrown into the waste basket
because the editor does not believe the
drink habit to tie a disease demanding
medical treatment. A score of magazine
"ads” were rejected because the maga
zines contain whisky and corset adver
tisements. Bargain day sales where 50-
cent goods are marked down to 49 cents
for one day only, were not admitted,
though in the same issue was an adver
tisement of a series of bible study books,
"former price *24, now only $6.” Illus
trations of underclothing or lingerie and
pictures of fashionable society women in
decollette costume were conspicuous by
their absence. All advertisements were
crowded together on two pages, and the
important modern advertising in the
way of dry goods announcements, groc
ery store price lists, etc., were not visible.
In reading the paper one could not help
observing how the Capital suffered as a
news medium in comparison with The
Oregonian, and how little difference,
after all, there was in the cleanly char
acter of the two papers, being mostly in
the one feature of politics. The Sheldon
paper does not prove that there is a
yawning Geld fora publication of that
kind, as against a religious weekly or
monthly, or a well-conducted secular
daily, and it proves more than anything
else that Mr. Sheldon has a personal in
terpretation of Jesus in newspaper work
that probably not one in a thousand
others would exactly agree with.

The Electric Company Ask* Too
Much for Oregon City l.ock*.
No actiou has been taken by the gov-
ernmeut toward purchasing the Oregon
City locks. The Portland General Elec
tric Company askes *1,200,000 for the
locks, and the government is not williug
to pay over *456,000. There the matter j
rests for the present. Tbe traffic through
the locks for the six years ending with
1898 was, according to Major Fisk, 376,-
036 tone of freight, 27,385,785 feet of logs,
piles aud lumber, and 82,974 passengers.
The charges collected by the Portland
General Electric Company in 1898
amounted to *39,073.50.
these charges, Major Fisk said :
"Supposing the tolls abolished and the
entire benefit given the producers, the
direct saving to them would be over *39-
000, while the indirect saving due to cor
responding reduced rail rates it would be
impossible to estimate without access to
the books of tbe Southern Pacific com
pany, though this would unquestionably
be much greater still.
“The Willamette valley is very rich, is
settling up rapidly, aud its traffic is con
stantly increasing; the general govern
ment is now at work carrying out a pro
ject for improvement of the Willamette
and Yamhill rivers, involving an expen
diture of *200,000, nearly all above the
locks at Willamette falls. As Portland,
the natural seaport fQr all this valley, is
below the locks, practically all the traffic
of the river must pass through them. In

To the extent stated above, viz., *456,000,

government. Before either the present
locks are acquired, or new ones built, the
exact legal rights of the United States to

insure sufficient supply, should be de
