The Easter Tea.
The KaHter tea and reception given
by the ladicH at the M. K. church

ing, wan a complete huccchh in every
detail. The church wan beautiful
decorated and fetdooned with Ore
gon grniie and llowerx, and tho Kiih
ter egg booth, conducteil by Minn
Hail, wan H'rfectly lovely. The tea
tables were delicately npread with
Hllver, and the tea, cofli and cakes
were ho perfect that the demand wiih
greater than the lr ability to nupply
the large crowd prenent. The hotne
inade candleH and the iH'autifully
decorateil Konter eggH completely
charmed the little folk, and each
and every one received all they
wanted, or at leant, all there wan to
be had. l'eople chatted while they
BlpMd their tea, and there wan
mingling and Intermingling of those
who winhed to nee all who were pres

them one that all San Franclnco Is
going crazy over at the present time
"Hiawatha." The receipt of the
evening were f41.45, which will go
toward paying for noine new Hong

Delegates from the I. (. O. F. lodges
In Lakevlew have not yet lieou
President on the Tariff.
In his Westward tour of 14XM) miles
the President has made many speech
es. At Minneapolis the other day a
grand reception was tendered him,
and he told the jieople there in his
plainest words what he thought
about the tariff and other things.
In brief he said:
More and more in the future we
must occupy a preponderant position
in the waters and along the coasts
In the regions south of us.
We are winning headships among
the nations of the world.
The present phenomenal prosjier
ltj has lieen won under a tariff which
was made In accordance with certain
principles, the most Important of
which Is an avowed determination
to protect the Interest of the Amerl
cau producer, business man, wage
worker and farmer alike.
It is almost as necessary that our
policy should le staple as that It
should lie wise.
Our aim should lie to preserve the
policy of a protective tariff, and yet,
wherever and whenever necessary, to
change the duties asmatters of legis
No change In tariff duties can have
any substantial effect in solving the
so-called trust problem.
In It Issue of April 'th the Ore
gonlan publisheiL the estimated In
crease, of Oregon's population sent
from each county. Luke county Is
only given 100 Increase In this time.
Following Ih the figures as published
In the Oregoninn:
From January 1, V.xrj, to March 31,
n erioil of 15 months thepojt
ulatlon of Oregon has increased
more than 41.ioi. rnipiestlonably
the immigration during that period
has been larger than In any of the
15 months in the h!fry of thestate,
f nd the heavy tide Is just setting In.
j Figures from all wctions of the state
j obtained by correspondents of The
t Oregoniau are subjoined. They tell
their own story. True, they are, at
iM'st, only good estimates, butitgoes
without saying that in no instance
has an attempt In-en made to exag
gerate. Oregon in June, l'JOO, had a pop
ulation of 413.25;. Natural increase
is about 2' er cent a year. Adding
the immigration in the l'J months
from June, l'.XH), to January 1, 1902,
which was probably not less than
15,nn0, It may safely be set down that
Oregon's population today exceeds.
