The Salem Public Ubrarv which was
conceived and started- bat a few short
months ago baa developed and grown
ia a wonderful manner. It waa begun
by the. gift of a couple of hundred used
volumes, at a social meeting; this was
followed by the permission f the city
government to use a portion oi toe cny
council chamber for the library and now
the room has shelves along two sides
and the number of volumes exceeds two

Tears, and Is Well ; Satisfied of the
Value of an Open Waterway at Palls.
There is noTuing that will help the
entire valley moTe 'than - the purchase
of the Oregon City locks by the Govern
ment, ia the feeling and opinion of Captain-
A. B. Graham, of the ateamer
Pomona. 'Captain Graham has been a
steamboatman of . thei Willamette river
for a number of years and is welt able
to discuss the matter ' from the stand
point of an ' economist.
Capt. Graham says that the purchase
of the locks by the government would
reduuce the freight rates from the up
per to fEe lower river at least fifty
eents and passengers by boat would
save 10 centson each passage. He says
that every person living in the valley is
interested im this matter and that it is
worthy their careful : attenioa. There
seems td"be a move on foot looking to
this sort of a deal,-but it will require
all the aid of every influence In the
western part of the state to accomplish
tne matter. ' ;

Many Western States .Will Compete in
' Displays at the Lewis and Clark Cen
tennial MIchiganders and New
Yorkers to Be Surprised at Exhibit.
PORTLAND, Dec 23 Western states
wii show Eastern visitors to the Lewis
and Clark Centennial that the Oregon
country and California ean produce ap
ples equal to any grown elsewhere.
The people of Michigan and new York
who come to the Western World's Fair
are likely to be' especially surprised
when they see the wonderful display
of apples on exhibition.
The Oregon State Commission has for
some months been preparing an apple
display, and a large assortment of the
fruit has already been, gathered and
placed in ; cold storage, where it will be
kept until tbe Exposition opens June
1, next. Alore recently California has
seen the advantage of advertising the
state at the xaix by an apple display,
and the State Board of Trade has sent
communications 'to every large apple
growing eounty in the state, addressing
growers and local organizations that
are in a position to help to exploit the
resources of California in this way.
While the season' has been bad for ap
ples in some sections, the general out
look is good for a splendid showing at
Portland in 1905.
Washington apple growers are like
wise taking a keen interest in the Fair
and Governor MeBride has been ap
proached with a proposition to have
the state nay for the collection and
storage of an apple exhibit. If the
state funds should not provWfor
meeting ths expense, there ino ques
tion that Individual growjra and local
organizations will take op the task.
In Idaho, also, apple growers, incited
bv reports of activity in other states,
have begun to agitate the subject of a
state display of this frnit, and. pros
pects are bright for an exhibit that
will rival those of 'the states better
known for their, resources along this
line. :

could not be learned, Paul Johns of

stabbed in the left aide, and Wood Da
vis Of Eola, occupies a eell in tbe Mar
ion county jail accused of the erime.
The trouble occurred In an alleyway in
the rear of the building occupied as a
saloon by Wm. R. Anderson, and the
men involved in the fracas were both
somewhat under the influence of liquor.
There were several witnesses to the
murderous assault, but when the police
arrived upon the scene it at once be
came evident . that the knowing ones
were determined . to shield the guilty
party, and it required much effort on
the tart of the officers to gain informa
tion which might give them a clew to
work on. Finally, however, the officers
were given a tip and late last evening
Chief of Police Gibson and i Deputy
Sheriff II. P. Minto went to Eola where
they placed under arrest Wood Davis.
who was brought to this city and locked
np in tbe county jail. : ,
Davis admits having been in Salem
yesterday afternoon hut denies bis guilt
of the assault upon Johns. When search

upon which were found blood stains.
