that we are np and doing, and that
our population Is Increasing year by

Idly by and allowing our neighbor
irtatea after this Presidential election
to advertise to the world that they
nro growing In population and Ore

matter of state pride for every voter
to avail himself of Ids franchise and
rote. As a means of showing a
growth of population. It is ahsolute
ly reutlnl that a full vote be register

our state at the present time Is the
most Vapid in Its history; but there

Shall we fold our hands uud not
avail ourselves of this Important anil
unusual opportunity to announce to
the world that we are growing lu
population? Over lu Washington
enterprising citizens, regardless of
party, are exerting every effort to get
the vote out in order to advertise
that their state is advancing, aud
consequently is the state for people
to move to.
Four years ago Washington cast
107.OUO.odd votes, aud the state of
Oregon cast 84,000-odd votes. This
year they are working 140,000; aud
" tiny succeed it will mean an in-
m-useof over 32 percent. If Oregon's
ratio of Increase is to be the same as
Washington's, we should return over

Here we have but f ur presidential
uW'tors to vote for; hence the only
(actor available to create sufficient

After this Presidential election the
newspapers of the country will teem
with comparative data touching the
growth ut Oregou. of Washington,
of Idaho; in fact, the growth of every
Pacific state since the last Presiden
tial election will be given fullest pub
licity. And papers of Washington,
Seattle In particular, will publish In
bold-faced type the growth of that
state; and should her ratio of in
crease exceed Oregon's, there will be
no end to newspaper comment nor
to the distribution of literature
showing the disparity between the
ratio of these two states. Will It
not cause inquiry and subsequently
Immigration if newspapers, alma
nacs, ami government and othersta
tlstlcs all over the natlou advertise
that Oregon since the last presldetial
election has grown equally in popu
lation with other states of the Pacif
ic. The fact Is, we have grown in
population, aud It but remains for
voters of this state to demonstrate
that fact to people who are looking
to the Pacific for future Investments
and homes.
And there another side to this ques
tion. Keuator John P. Dolllver of
Iowa remarked at these headquar
ters recently that the best place to
get legislation in Washington is at
the White House; and he emphasized
the Importance of Oregon giving
Roosevelt aud Fairbanks a larger ma
jority in November than the state
went In June. Listen to substantial
ly his own words:
"You will have a call on the Presi-
dentand his Immeiiiate political fam
ily then. They will be constrained
to not deny Oregon's delegation In
Congress any reasonable request.
Your rivers and harbors, your irri
gation schemes, the Jetty at the
mouth of the Columbia, the canal at
The Dalles, your arid lauds, your
forest timber lands, your transport
service, your worlds fair, and your
federal buildings these and whatev
er else require help will stand a far
greater chance of satisfactory atten
tion from Congress than if the people
of your state wrap the drapery of
their couches about them and lie
down to pleasant dreams. Why,
Iowa will give Koosevelt aud Fair
bauks at the very least 100,000. .This
Is conceded. Still the red tiro of en
thusiasm Is illuminating every pre
cinct in tho Hawkeye state. What
for? Simply because It will redound
to our state's credit ut Washington!"
I beg pardon for submitting to you
this long letter; but having some pro
perty interests In the state, and be
ing a comparatively zealous native
hou of Oregou, my humble efforts
have been aud will continue to be
along the Hue of commercial specula

duties as Chairman of tho Kepublicaa

"It mnkes little difference to' the
.Herald as to where J. B. Stark, the
absconding preacher may be.
Whether washing dishes in a restau
rant at Stockton or occupying a pul
pit in Michigan. The fact Is he is an
absconding debtor and a hypocrite,
and that the wash administered by
our contemporary, The Examiner,
cannot cleanse him. He is. guilty of
a far greater crime than the poor
negro who was sentenced to the pen
itentiary, and should have been
brought to justice even If he did
have a 'Rev. attached to his name."
(The item referred to in the above
was one published in The Examiner
last week, Issued a few hours before
the Herald went to press, and which
neither savored of vindication or
censure of J. B. Stark, but was simp
ly Intended to show that the, Her
ald man did not know what he was
talking about when he said the week
before that Stark was working in a
reeraurant in Stockton, aud If the
Herald man doesn't quit firing back
at Items In The Examiner, tho same
week they are published; people will
catch on to where he gets his news.)
It is uow an assured fact that
there is a treat number f rasas of
diphtheria in Big valley. There were
three deaths In Adln, Bieber and
vicinity last Sunday, and Mr. Trow
bridge, who is here attending court,
Informs us there is a largo number of
cases among the children. Health
oillcer Gibson went down in that
section this week, and tho towns
and the county line has been quar
lntlued, the mails will bo fumigated,
and all precautions will be taken,
still there Is plenty of chance for tho
diseaso to havo already spread all
over tho county. It is tho most
dreaded diseaso of all, and people of
this town should begin immediately
to flirht acalnsb It. The different
doctors of this place havo expressed
a fear of u spread of dlphthorla, after
tholongspellof high water wo had
hero last Spring. This warm dry
weather Is Just the kind to breed
diseases, so lets all unlto in an effort
to prevent Its spread here, where
hundreds of little children are In
danger. New Era.

Editor Examiner,
Lakevibw. Onfc.,
Dkar Sue Thinking your readers
might be Interested In hearing some
thing from this part of the country,
aside from the current news of the
papers, I will endeavor to give you
some items that has come under my
perhaps astute observation.
First Is the social aspect of Corval
lls, which I can assure you is pre-eminent.
The people are corteous and
friendly; no codfish aristocracy.
Secondly, the moral element is
largely in the ascendency; there are
twelve churches in the city, all which
have a respectable congregation, and
some of them scarcely have sitting
room for the congregation and gen
eral attendance.
Thirdly, there are few saloons and
those are conducted In such a man
ner as to require no policemen. They
have a city marshal and watchman.
Their county Jail is mouldy from
want of use. .
Fourthly, theireducatlonal depart
ments and privileges are without a
rival. But fifthly, I take issue with
them In regard to their amusements,
especially their foot ball games. I
consider it. a beastly as well as an
uncouth game. There is nothing,
graceful about it. I have had the
disgusting privilege of witnessing
two games, saw men knocked sense
less, laid out and had to be resusita
ted by physicians whom they have
on the ground; and yet it Is popular.
Men women and children go wild
over the game, Professors encourage
and abet it, offer prizes, Government
pays instructors, etc.
The only difference I can see be
tween it and the Spanish Bull lights
is in the latter we sympathize with
the poor dumb brute, that is Chris
tian like, whereas in the foot ball
game little or no sympathy is shown
to tho fallen. But their motto Is the
survival of tho fittest. Now I am
aware that I will render myself un
popular by antagonizing that -pop-ular
amusement. But I think somo
other game might be Invented less'
dangerous and tlll develop the phy
sical powers of the student. They
say Uui hUtuiy ivpeUiUlf. - AuX
I have often wondered it we were
gradually drifting bock to the days
of the Roman Gladiators. cannot
however bring my mind to believe
It possible to degeuerate or drift
back to a state that will paralell the
condition of Rome under the govern
ment of Nero. And yet I coufess I
am a great admjrer of Knighthood
and true valor and tho chariot races
as portrayed by Ben Ilur. 1 might
add more but fear I might indict too
much on your readers. Aud to tell
tho truth I am a llttlo suspicious of
tho waste basket.
Yours Respectfully
S, O. PKASti.
