EVENING CAPITAL JOURNAL.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 17, 18S8.
A FtI Hlntss.
for about three weeks Mr. Abe
anfleld, of San Francisco, has
Un lviug ill at the residence of his
er Mrs. Louis Kuhii. While
traveling in the pursuit of his busi
ness for the house of Friedlander,
Koch & Co., of San Francisco, he
ffa3 taken ill in Portland with what
proved to be typhoid fever. He
greatly desired to be with his rela
tives, and on reaching his sister's
home in Salem, thanked God that
he was under her roof and loving
tare. Their brother, Mr. Theo.
Mansfield, hastened to his bedside
ind has showed all a brother's care
ami attention to the last. Drs. J.
Smith and J. N. Reynolds, too,
have done everything in their pow
.rtn alleviate suffering and restore
heilth. But watchful care and ten
der nursing of friends and the skill
of physicians were powerless to avert
death which took place last night.
The body will bo embalmed and ta
lon to San Francisco for burial. The
decend was yet in his young man
hood, being barely twenty-two years
nf.nn-o. The relatives desire the
jontNAii to express their gratitude
for general sympathy and evinced to
the doctors in attendance for their
more than professional services. Mr.
Theo. Mansfield says that in all his
travels and contact with sickness lie
never -aw a deeper pcrsoual interest
manifested towards a patieift than
by Drs.. Smith and Reynolds who
not onlv prescribed, but in their
(heml-hip often took the matter of
administration and application into
their own hands notwithstanding
the constant presence of regular nur
e. The sympathy with the be
reaved family is widespread.

The West Side correspondent of
the above desirable settlement sug'
gests that the abundance of good
fruit in that neighborhood calls for
an erection of an evaporator and in
tlmates that H. S. Jory & Son, of
Salem, who make the machines
should put one up and run it. This
is a plan that Salem people could
not object to if the manufacturers
were not so exceedingly busy mak
ing and erecting driers for other
people. A similar suggestion was
not long ago made to the writer by
a resident of Aurora who spoke of
the low rate at which fruit could be
bought there and dried at a profit,
But the ,TouKNAii feels moved to
ask why is there not enterprise
enough both in these and other com
munities to induce individuals or
small co-operative companies to pur
chase one of the dryers spoken of
and dry their own fruit and that of
the neighborhood. Then the money
spent in labor and material, and the
profits made would bo kept at home.

J. B. Fithian, editor of the Vidette,
was seen tills morning with coat off
and sleeves rolled up,diligently driv
ing down the dangerous, protruding
nails in the plank crossing on Lib
erty street. Tills was suppos-cd to
be an act of pure public splritedness,
but enquiry developed the fact that
the motive was higher and grander
than that. The Colonel lias resolv
ed himself into a society for the pre
vention of profanity. And since
editorial and other toes have been
stubbed times without number and
at least one pair of brand new shoes
wrecked on the sidewalk spikes, he
determined to attempt to reduce the
growing blueness of the lower strat
um of the atmosphere by this labor
of love. It is to be hoped that this
work of philanthropy and high
moral reform will bo prosecuted
wherever needed over tlio city. But
if so, editorial matter in tlio Vidette
is likely to be short for some weeks
since lie would havo a big contract
On Wednesday evening at the
residence of tlio parents of the bride,
in the presence only of the immed
iate fiiends, Dr. L. L. Rowland,
an old friend of the family of tlio
groom, legally united in the bonds
of matrimony Miss. Viola Her, of
Salem, and Mr. O. C. Matlock, son
of Hon. N. N. Matlock, ex-member
of the legislature for Marion county.
The young lady is the last of three
sisters married within a short time,
and will make a true helpmeet to
her husband, a well to do farmer of
Crooked Finger, beyond Silverton,
in this county. After the ceremony
hearty congratulations were extend
ed and the company were enter
tained at supper. Tlio young couple
have gone to housekeeping in their
rural home, and aro in every way
worthy of tlio happiness wished
them by their friends
An Kmbijo Town.
Quite a settlement is being made
across the river near the Wallace
fruit farm. A good many tracts of
land for small fruit farms have boon
sold. This means what so many
parts of Oregon need, subdivision of
the large farms, and more homes
near together. That insures better
social, f-chool and church privilege.
It also raises the price of land by
bringing it Into demand and will
lead to improved roads. Ad Salem
is tlio nearest town with a good road
nnd n free bridge inakliiRnccort easy,
a markot will be found hero and our
merchants, colleges and other in
terests will be bonotlted.

and to withdraw from tlio business

in favor of the latter as it saves about
seven miles traveling out of the total

If all we hear of our neighboring
educational center Is correct, Salem
must look to her laurels. Our cor
respondent writes: "Tho outlook
for the State Normal school is grati
fying Indeed. Everything goes to
show that tho attendance will bo
much larger next year than ever
before. We have now tho largest
school In the state and more gradu
ates this year than all the other
schools together. AVo are about to
have a boom in Monmouth. Presi
dent Stanley is laying out his place
into business lots and giving them
away to business men to put up
business houses, and tho oiler is
being accepted. We shall have
some line business houses go up this
fall and next spring. A large- new
building that is to give space for an
agricultural Implement and hard
ware store, a book store, a bank, a
printing ofllco, a millinery store,
and an opera house, is now con
tracted for, to be completed by
December 1st. Other buildings will
follow. Wo mean business and
want some more good business men."

his illustrious father. Logan Car
lisle, son of Speaker Carlisle, will bo
placed in charge of the tarill' reform
literary bureau at the national dem

lisle is said to be almost as well in
formed on tho tarill' as his father.
These two young men, sons of the
most conspicuous exponents of tho
two great theories of protection and
tarill' reform, will tints bo pitted

The Salem Statesman, though
quite radical, has an editor who not
only has the Intelligence to under
stand tho platform of his party, but
tlio courage and candor to defend it
Ho says: "If tlio choice should have
to bo made of taking tlio tax oil
whisky or rollnmilshluK a part of
tho protective duties, then, we say,
retain tho duties for protection."
Tho Statesman deserves credit for
tills frankness, honesty and consis
tency. That paper would do just
what the republican platform
pledges its party to do "the entire
repeal of interhal revenue rather
than surrender any part of our pro
tective system." Albany Democrat.
