In gala attire the community should welcome her guests. Thousands of people from all sections of the state flock to Salem and preparations should he made to greet them as they are greeted at Pendleton for the Round-Up, at Portland for the Rose Show and in other live commun ities. First impressions go a ong way with visitors and it must be admitted that Salem does not rise to her oppor tunities. Intsead of a live and growing community, the first impression of the visitor is that Salem is a dead one. Fair week should not be regarded as an-occasion for petty grafting, but as affording an opportunity for adver tising the city as well as the products of Oregon. In con nection with the fair, should be staged the street pageants Brickbats and Boquets (From the qrcgoiyvotcr.) , bought out C. H.

That tie Portland Railway Light and Power company will be ruined unless it is al lowed to charge eight cents for street car rides in Portland is the- declara tion which was made iby Franklin T. Griffith, president of the company. j Griffith made formal request for the right to increase, the rare from six to eight cents before the public service commision, in session here. He declar ed traffic had decreased and wages in creased since the company was granted its petition for a six cent fare. I Influenza, labeled Spanish, came and Heat me to my knees; seven doctors couldn't banish from my form that lunik disease; for it's ant among the uitlei's; vainly doctors pour their bit Iwrs into ailing human critte-rs; they j"t sneeze and swear and sneeze.

Salem has too long been indifferent to fate. - Cursed with being the capital, she has been content to have the state pour bounties in her lap and has failed to develop be initiative, force and progressiveness that creates cities. She has prospered through little effort of her own her prosperity has been forced upon her. Let us hope that before another year rolls around, Salem will not only dress-up for the occasion, but wake-up to her opportunity. a nose for the kind of news that bo thers, with a faculty of taming green reporters to write with sharp liouk. To say that he won the respect of the Spokane business clement is putting it mildly. Their fear of him was only ex ceeded by their joy when he left town. In Portland, Putnam worked xn the Journal for C. H. Jackson, and was a man after Jackson 's own heart. Put nam made good in just those ways that Jackson likes to have a man make good as an expert- in keeping the business community annoyed by printing ther stuff the great mass of the people like to rea-d. It wasn't long before Putnam bought a Medford paper and made it a daily the Medford Muil-Tribune; Ho mado one big success of that puper, handling its business affairs with remarkablo ability and editing it in a way that mado the town and the whole state sit the people. Uneasy lies the head that wears a state houso job; with George Putnam Hying in Salem. Every newspaper man in Oregon, and every politician who knows Putnam, will watch the Salem Journal with increased I interest f ronvnow on. Tor something is bound to happen. 'And then something else will happen. With Putnam around, ono thing happens right after another.

A Cincinnati preacher, Sunday, prayed for success of the local baseball team, appealingto God to "grant the players keen eyes and wits, and many runs."

(From the Portland Spectator.) ' ' One of the bost newspapermen in the country is George Putnam, on whose purchase of the Capital Daily Journal the people of Salem, and, indeed, of the entire state, ar0 to be congratulated. Mr. Putnam has had a deal of experi ence in nowspaper work. Home years ago he was news editor of the Portland Jour nal, and those who worked with him in tho -days of that paper's puny you know how much -he contributed toward its success. As owner and editor of the Mail-Tribune he not enlv gave the peo pic of Medford a paper for which thev had every reason to bo grateful, but aid cd in making Medford a city of which the state has reason to be proud. The Spectator has frequently enjoyed the happiness of diBngreeiug with Mr. Put nam 's views, which all its arguments and eloquence could not change, because Mr. Putnam believed they were right. A newspaperman is usually one who does not own a paper, but can write; a jour nalist, one who. owns paper, and can not write. Mr. Putnam is a journalist than who there are fow more forcible writers, a-nd a newspaperman ' who has made very valuable the papers he has owned. ' The Spectator expects to see the Capital Journal become a tower of strength at Salem and throughout the state. 75 YEAR OLD RHEU MATIC THROWS AWAY HIS CRUTCHES "I am now 75 years of age, and for a number of year have suffered with rheumatism, eczema and a severo itch ing.
