CAPITAL CITY NEWS.
Recital ofllie Daily Doings Compiled From
Happenings Over tlic City and
From the Country.
Three Hills City Items.
From the Albany Democrat we
glean tbe following uows items con
cerning Mills City:
If the eastern peoplo would know
Low beautiful a climate wo Lave
hero at the foot of the Cascade moun
tains, In a year's time Mills City
would have thousands of people.
Cutting railroad wood for tbeO.
P. seems to bo a good occupation up
in our country. Hundreds of. cords
are piled up along tbo track and lots
more is cut daily.
This district is making prepara
tions to build a school house. Mr.
Bice has donated them an acre of
land and tbo citizens of Mills City
are clearing the ground,
house will be erected in
A Good Increase.
As anticipated in the Jouhnal
eoveral days ago, the census of the
Salem school district shows a flatter
ing increase of population during
1888. The census just completed by
David Simpson, school clerk, gives
the number of voters lu the district
1690 as against 1217 last year; tbe
number of persons between tbe
ages of 4 aud J20 years, 2311, (males
1111, females 1200), as against 2006
lust year, (males 053, females 1050);
total population, 10,113, as against
8,130 last year. At this rato of in
crease it will not 'bo many years
beforo Salem Is a city of no mean
proportions. The immigration is
steady and sure, not a few coming
in every day.
Tlie Stage of Water.
Sleambouting on tlio Willamette
continues to uo carried on with dif
ficulty, tlio water being very low.
Tho Occident came down last night
.and loft this morning down tho
river. Site took down 100 tons of
lumber, rock, potatoes and oats, and
had to refuse fifty tons of flour and
aborts from tliu mill, as she could
not cross tho shallow points witli
heavier burden. Tlio customary
ruins do not appear and in conse
quence tbo water continues low.
There lu no scarcity of freight.
Hatters In Probate,
in Probate court this morning the
walo of tho Joint Hughes property
to Sophia Hefty for $1025 by the
administrator, David Simpson, was
John A. Mann was appointed
guardian of Henry, Albert, Lo"'ls,
"William and llnttlo Maun, minors.
His bond was Hied and accepted in
tbe sum of $850.
' T. A. Howard was appointed ad
ministrator of tlio estate of D. C.
Aa Immigrant t'oaxer.
Oregon ought to have double its
present population. What has
kept it down? Certain old, slow,
pokey, conservative views of a few
old settlers; of a few, notofall, and
a natural timidity as to investments.
The same influence has kept back
News many regions, but it cannot last.
Just let Salem gird up its lions and
"pitch In." Let every householder
send newspapers to Eastern friends
and tho results will soon ho seen
and felt. We publish the Journal
especially to inducesettlement hero,
but if our people squirm and pinch
and and say "wo take one paper al
ready" what can vou expect? It
makes us fairly sick to hear men
make such excuses when we are
doing so much and hove no interest
at all compared with them. Men
owninar land In this recion are tak
ing but one copy of our paper. Five
copies of our weekly will cost but
ten cents per week to the subscriber.
Five business houses of one little
town in Kansas took five hundred
copies of a paper started there at
two dollars a year for each copy.
We do not know of a single busi
ness house in Salem taking live
copies of our dollar weekly I ! What
Is the matter ? Compare tho Jour
nal with any other papor. We
know this is not our fault. Come
in and order five copies at least to
bo sent abroad. We will see to tho
Tbe State Orange.
Salem will have tho pleasure the
latter part of May of entertaining
an honored body of guests, as tho
Oregon Stato Grange will convene
on tho fourth Tuesday of May in
Salem. California will bo represent-'
ed with a delegation of about forty
or more, of tho. wealthiest and most
influential farmers and patrons of
tlio state. These excursionists ex
pect to visit in Oregon two weeks.
Would it not bo well for the differ
ent boards of trade and immigration
to plan for their entertainment? All
should unite in these courtesies
and make jt pleasant for these visi
tors from our sister state and from
the different parts ot our own Ore
gon, and thus advertise tho wortli
and beauty of our stato.
