Tho poopo expect to soo ono good street Improvement undertaken and
tho popular loan closed out to tho smaller capitalists.
To loavo tho loan hanging on tho more good will and verbal agree
ment of a prlvato banker Is not good business policy for tho city.

DEMAND HI8 PRINCIPAL AT ANY TIME, AND ASK FOR CURRENT
8H0RT TIME RATES OF INTERE8T. '
It will not pay tho city to let progress In streets or tho popular .loan
drag along. Neither will it pay to delay lighting tho suburbs.
There is hosto that wastes and delay that Is -not economy and tho
present city council can bo trusted to strike the happy medium out of
which comps the best government and tho most satisfaction.

HONOR AND HONESTY IMPREGNABLE,
Abraham Lincoln will In time be considered by the whole world as the
greatest man who ever lived, second only to Jesus of Nazareth. He was
rborn In a log cabin February 12, 1809, and assassinated In Ford's theatre,
Washington, D. C, April 14, 1805.
WHY DO WE NOT EXPORT MORE MANUFACTURES?
Tho annual oxport of manufactures from tho United States, Canada,
Australia, Japan, Brazil, Argonttnca, and Europe outsldo of Turkey and
4ho Balkan regions, amounts to1 just about a round four billions.
Of this tho United Kingdom had, in 1902, $1,141,131,000, or nearly
Qormaay had (1901) $824,051,000, or nearly one-flfth.
Franco had (1902) $508,803,000, or nearly one-eighth.
AND THE UNITED STATES, IN SPITE OF THE ENORMOUS DE
TELOPMENT OF IT8 MANUFACTURING SYSTEM, HAD (1902) ONLY
4403,631,000, OR A LITTLE MORE THAN A TENTH.
,Why asloa Everybody's, Magazino, Is tho United States so much bo
lilmt its rlvala.
, k jo bo aiiro tho domestic market Is onormouB, but It is far from largo
enough to keep tho factories going all tha time.
. 'Wo must have tho foreign markete," tho manufacturers say; and
If they cannpt dispose of their surplus product abroad, they must
"ahut down" their factories from timo to tlmo.
Stoady labor for tho factory hands at homo Is dopondont In many
cases upon tho marketing of this trado. , v
BUT THE UNITED 8TATE8 OUGHT TO BE AHEAD OF FRANCE
.AND AT LEAST ABREAST OF GERMANY.
WHY, 18 IT NOT.
GOOD PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE A LABOR PROPOSITION.
Tho quostlon of having any grades "In tho public schools abovo
ninth grado Is abovo all olso a labor proposition. '
Thoro aro now in tho schools 100 boys and girls who are finishing tho
ninth grado and If thoy quit thon thoy become competitors with laboring
'NOT OVER TEN PER CENT WILL GO TO COLLEGES AND THE
OTHER NINETY WILL 8EEK POSITIONS IN DIRECT COMPETITION
TVITH WORKER8 NOW EMPLOYED IN THE COMMUNITY.
Thoy aro mostly young boys and girls and thoy will have to work
very cheap as beginners and will bo employed as dorks and In all
lines Instead of full hands'
Tho full public school courso would koop them In school two or threo
years longor, until thoy woro older, bettor educatod and not to bo em
ployed for a morely nominal compensation.
Tho moral sldo of this question alono Burpasso3 in importance tho
Industrial phoao of tho question of bettor public schools.
To closo tho public schools at tho ninth grade means that boys and
girls aro to bo thrown out Into thworld at tho ago whon they aro not
yet matured in any respect. Thoy aro neither children nor adults.
THEY ARE AT THE AGE WHEN THEY ARE MOST EASILY IN
F.LUENCED FOR GOOD OR BAD AND WHEN THEY SHOULD NOT
YET BE TURNED INTO THE STRESS AND STRIFE OF WAGE
Laljor orgunlatlons should stand ns an unit for tho additional grades
In tho publlo schools. Thoy should do that out of charity for tho boys
and girls nnd out of Justice to themselves as wago earners.
THE COMPOSITION OF RIVER GRAVEL.
Tho statement of this papor, that rlvor gravpl Is largely composed of
material thnt crushes under traffic nnd is easily ground up, Is contra
dieted by somo ono.
Tho fact Is that tho roads mntlo or gravel during our long wet wlntors
under heavy traffic become covorcd deeply with mud. Whothor this Is
duo to tho grnvol stones crushing, or tho mud and oand in tho gravel,
wo do not protend to be ablo to say.
The common rivor gravol 1ms In It soft stones of ' indurated clay
that will write llko chalk on other hard substnnces. Tho fact remains
that grnvol makes better roads than dirt.
TO BE FAIR AND JUST TO GRAVEL, IT MUST BE SAID THE WAY
GRAVEL ROADS ARE CONSTRUCTED HAS MUCH TO DO WITH. THE
OBJECTIONS TO ITS USE AS ROAD MATERIAL.
Maohlnoa havo boon Invented that grado and scroon grav61, Into threo
fclzea. Tho coarsest la put down first, tho medium next and tho finest
on tQjt Each layer la rolled down solid and a lino rondwny Is tho ro-
nut a wldo fiat street cannot bo built of grnvol that will not bo con
verted Into mud by traffic. Thnt has boon thoroughly trlod in this city,
ami cannot bo disputed.
U la up to tho advocatos of gravel to show the people how to build
hotter streets out of that material.
THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN OVER THE LIBERTY BROKEN
ROCU ROAD DO KNOW THERE IS A ROAD THAT STOOD HEAVY
TRAFFIC AND DID NOT GRIND UP INTO MUD.
Tho taxpayer has n right to something moro sqllsfnotory for his mon
ey If ho. can got It. Good roads can bo built of rlvor gravel but thoy
havo not yot been built of that mattrlal In tlioso parts.
THE COUNCIL 18 PROCEEDING WITH CARE AND DELIBERATION.
The Kopubllcan olty council has boon fairly organised and Is slowly
and steadily getting down to Ita work.
Thp rules of that body aro bolng printed and tho books of the old
-ndmfuUtratlon aro bolng oxportod.
Tho work of passing a blcyclo ordlnanco and floating a popular loan
and starting a street improvement are all under way,
Ttfo charter anil tho ordinances will havo to bo compiled and printed
and thon tho couucllmcn and tho mayor at least will know what tho city

THE POLITICAL 8ITUATION IN LINN COUNTY.
Tho Albany Herald , has these suggestions as to thq coming election
IniatjCeunty: ,' - ..', , ,- . .
' jrl& Herald admits that there have been factions In the Linn county
Republican body. But.for those upfortunato differences Linn county
would havo the advantages of Republican' officials. But It is truo that at
present there Is every prospect that Linn, county Republicans will avoid
former causes of difference and all work earnestly for tho causo of their
tlckqt. Tho election can show no henv majorities for any candidate.
It looks much llko an even proposition, with tho odds In favor of tho
Republicans, If their strong men are nominated, as will probably be
tho case. Republicans can count on somo reinforcement from voters
who havo previously voted against them, but who are weary of things
as they are, and disgusted with county rule for somo years.
For this good county to be longer hampered by a government .of
"Lords of mlsrulo" would bo unfortunate indeed. xLInn county has pro
grossed, not because of them, but In splto of them. Linn county cannot
hopo to take her place at the front until now conditions exist in coun
ty affairs. This is plain to any one.
Thoso who have for somo tlmo enjoyed good Incomes drawn from the
county treasury should begin to faco the need of retiring to prlvato life.
But if thoy havo been saying, thoy will bo prepared to do so.

Sig'ns of Polluted Blood.
There is nothing so repulsive looking nnd disgusting as an old sore.
You worry over it till the brain grows weary and work with it until the
pntienceis exhausted, and the very sight of the old festering, sickly looking
place makes you irritable, despondent nnd desperate.
A chronic sore in the very best evidence tint our Mood i i i.: an unhealthy
and impoverished condition, that your constitution is breaking1 down under
the effects of some serious disorder. The tnkitlg of strong medicines, like
mercury or potash, will sometimes so pollute nnd vitiate the blood and im
pair the general system that the merest scratch or bruise results in obstinate
non-healing sores of the most offensive character.
Often an inherited taintbrcaksoutinfrightful eating sores upon thclitubs
or face in old age or middle life. Wheucver n sore refuses to heal the blood
is always at fault, and, while antiseptic washes, salves, soaps aud powders
can do much to keep down the inflammation and cleanse the sore, it will
never heal permanently till the blood itself has been purified and the deadly
genus nnd poisons destroyed, aud with S. S. S. this can be accomplished the
poiuueu mooa lspunneu aim invigorated, and when
rich.pure blood isagniucirculating freely throughout
the body the flesh around the old soro begins tq take
on n natural color, the discharge of matter ceases
nnd the place heals over.
, S. S. S. is bqth a blood purifier and tonic that puts your blood in ordex
and at the same time tones up the system and builds tip the general health,
