OYER THE CAPITAL CITY.
Complete Hccital of the Daily Doings Com
piled From Various Souim
Happenings Over the City and News
From the Country Roundabout.
Look Out For Tbem.
Quite a number of swindlers seem
to bo traveling over the country
now. Tliey represent nearly ovcry
kind of business and aro usually
slick talkers. It is not a good idea
to buy from strangers when you
can deal with persons you know,
and no farmer should- sign any
paper however harmless it may
look. Ordinary looking receipts
and contracts have been known to
turn up In a short time as nn iron
clad note in the hands of tin "in
nocent nurchascr." The papers re
port swindling fruit tree agents
abroad. Look out for them, us they
arellablo to appear at any time.
Their game is to sell very ordinary
trees at a high price by representing
that thoy are of a superior quality.
There may bo honest strangers
abroad but it is better to buy of
parties with whom you aro ac
quainted. Salem Illustrated.

An enthusiastic meeting ot a
number of the business men of Sa
lem was held last night at tho Capi
tal bank for tho purpose of consider
ing the proposition of tho establish
ment of a woolen mill In Salem.
J. H. Albert was chosen president
and C. B. Moores secretary and a
general informal discussion of the
proposition was indulged In.
Thomas Kay, a well known wool
en mill man of forty years experience
and until a few weeks ago a heavy
stock owner in the celebrated
Brownsville woolen mills, was
present and addressed the meeting.
It Is his desire to establish a woolen
mill at this place and will do so if
he can gain sufficient encourage
ment from the people. His Inten
tion would be to establish such a
a mill as would from the very be
ginning be of greater capacity than
the one at Brownsville and which,
after a year or two he had no doubt
would give employment to nearly
400 hands. The Brownsville mill
has been successful, but ho has de
cided to locate a mill where tho sur
roundings aro such as will permit of
the business increasing. He comes
to Salem first, believing this city to
be better adapted to the permanent
location of a four-set woolen mill. Al
bany, Eugene and Pendleton aro
each offering him a splendid bonus
for tho establishment of such an en
terprise In their respective cities.
Salem can gain the coveted prize by
performing some good hard work.
Mr. Kay and his associates pro
pose investing at least $55,000 in
the projected enterprise, and as soon
as tho plan is well matured stock
books would be opened for as much
A committee consisting of Messrs.
Boothby, Moores and Albert was
appointed to confer with tho owners
of the different water powers rela
tive to their purchase. When it is
learned for what sum an adequate
power (150 horse) can bo purchased,
Mr. Kay is prepared to stato what
subsidy ho will require of Salem.
The bonus, he thinks, must bo about
$20,000. The above committee will
at once investigate and as soon as
they can prepare a report another
meeting of those interested will bo
held and a conclusion arrived at, as
Mr. Kay wishes to go to Europe to

SALEM WILL HE EVANGELIZED.
Moody Is Coming And Will Arrive
About January First.
Itov. Brown, of tho Moody execu
tive committee, last night received
a letter from tho great evangelist's
secretary stating that Mr. Moody
would leave Portland on tho lln-t
prox. Tho letter is as follews:
Dear Sir: Mr. Moody has request
ed me to advise you that Messrs.
Studd and Burke will (I). V.) come
up from Astoria on Wednesday's
boat and will therefore bo able to
start work at Salem on Thursday, I.
o.. 27th Inst. Mr. Moody himself
will leave hero an Jan. 1st. May
God's tidiest blessings rest on Sa
lem. Yours very faithfully,
O. S. Winblow.
By this it would seem that the
revival is to commence on Dee. 27th,
led by Messrs. Studd and Burke,
who prccedo Mr. Moody, arousing
tho Interest to the highest. Thoy
will conduct tho meetings until
January 3rd, when Mr. Moody will
arrive from Astoria, where ho goes
for two days from Portland.
Tho evangelist prefers to spend
his holidays quietly and for that
reason tho revival hero will not oc
cur tut soon as had boon expected.
In tho meantime tho M. E. church
is being put in readiness for a rich
season of evangelistic work. Ad

One of the noblest and most dis

"Just how far Mrs. Bitten

She Is wise, quiet, and cautious, nnd
doubtless she will do this right ; but
my judgment is, your hearts will
grow warm as you discover how
slowly but surely your cause has
advanced when most of yju thought

ment, and, so far, she has shown
great nullity in winging lorccs iu

me this truth has scarcely been ap
preciated by the "White Ribbon"
women. One of these ladies ap

ing of the masses through the
schools, tho other for a constitu
tional amendment; these are no
trivial affairs. Your representatives

During the fifteen years following
the adoption of total abstinence by
tho Society of Friends, tho average
length of life increased seven and
one-half per cent.
The leading chemists tell us that
alcohol causes diseases of the vital
organs, debilitates the vigor of the
physical system, while it weakens
the mind and promotes in both pre
mature decay. Sir Astley Cooper
says : "Wo have all been in error
in recommending wine as a tonic.
Ardent spirits and poison are con
vertible terms." The stimulus given
is not strength ; it is always exceed
ed by the subsequent depression.
Tho following bit of "sound rea
son" is from an old gentleman
friend : "When Uoii created neaven
and earth, Ho did a certain amouut
of work each day, and at the close
of the dav. he pronounced His work
good. Each day's work was of a
higher order than of tho preceding
day. On tho sixth and last day that
He worked He made man. From
this fact I Infer that He meant man
to be tho best and noblest of all His
works. Now! If you will notice
every living creature closely, you
must admit that not one or tliose
which God created previous to tho
creation of man, has a desire for in
toxicating Houors, nor is it neces
sary to their health and happiness.
"Why, then, is It necessary for man
when God made him on a higher
order and Intended him to be better
in every way than the lower ani
mals?" Ox Duty.
