Itemized Account of Doings in City and
THE PRINTERS' PICNIC.
JL Meeting of the Committee Called
Albany Wants to Come.
The matter of the printers' picnic
is still uppermost in the minds of
our local typos, ami inasmuch as the
time is not far distant, a meeting of
the general committee of arrange
ments has been called to meet in the
Videttc office at 7:30 to-night.
The Albany boys want to come as
the two letters appended show.
They are both written to members
of the committees.
Albany, Oh., Slay 3, 18SS.
"Dear Sir: I arrived home all O.
K. and brought tho matter of the
Saieiii picnic, to be given on labor
day, up before the meeting, and our
(hose) team will come and partici
pate in the exercises of the day, pro
viding a suitable cash prize is ottered.
We will most likely give an excur
sion down on that day. Would like
to hear from you in regard to prizes
and rules. Give us all tho informa
tion you can and we will help you
in making a grand success of the
picnic. ours respectfully.
The other letter is as follows;
Awjany. On., Mhy 3. 18S3.
Dear bin What arrangements, if
any, are being made in toalem lor a
demonstration, or observance of
labor day, An excursion is to be
given from this city in the near
future for mutual benellt and a good
time generally, and it might be that
"two birds could be killed with one
stone" as it were, by giving it to
your city on that day. Have any
steps been taken toward amuse
ments? Will any prizes be awarded
for Urenien's centests: such as hose
races, etc., and if so, have you any
idea of the amount? By giving this
your direct and undivided attention,
you will confer a favor that will
never be forgotten "within the
next three days." Yours respect
U. W. Watts.
So our business men can see the
Interest that our neighbors are tak
ing in the matter, and will probably
stand in nicely on the finances,
Oli! Mow lieautiruK?).
That is the expression that is often
overheard from visitors to this city
when their eyes re&t upon those
honid fences that enclose Willson's
avenue, Marion bipiare, and espec
ially the frontage of the Willamette
University campus. This latter has
the appearance of having been con
structed about tho year 1, a. r., or
some where along there. The fences
about the public parks are old and
worn out, broken down, tho paint
oil", and they are exceedingly unor
namcntal. Would it not Ik? bettor to have the
police surveillance of those places
made a little more complete, so that
tra. ows would not get on the
Mjuaivs, and then tear away those
liiirnd fences of almost untidpluvian
day-. They are of no utility any
longer and everybody knows there
is nothing attractive about them. If
we a iv to have a boom, let us sweep
up, and get ready for it. It is sure
that so long as those fences remain
there, and the geyeral aspect of tho
city remains "murky" and antiqua
ted a-t it i. now, the visitor who
would feel inclined to invest his cap
ital in a pretty, neat, active little
town, will steer clear of us.
Let us tear away the fences, or re
pair and paint them. The formor is
much the cheaper and bettor plan.

"A private telegram was received
in this city yesterday announcing
tho death at Indianapolis early
yesterday morning of F. M.
Thayer, a former editor and
proprietor of this paper. Kidney
troubles, from which Mr. Thayer
suffered for years, finally culminated
in death. Mrs. Will H. Walker
and Oscar Thayer left this city a
week since, but their father was
unconscious and failed to recognize
them. Mr Thayer, at the time of
his death, was assistant treasurer
of the state of Indiana. Ho was a
native of Alabama and aged about
54 years at the time of his death.
He removed to Indiana with his
parents and was educated at Indian
apolis Seminary. Some thirty years
since he founded the Evansvillo
Journal, which ho built up until it
was an eight-page dally paper and a
power in that section of Indiana.
For 'eight years Mr. Thayor was
postmaster. In 1983 ho came to
Portland, and for two years was edi
tor and half owner of tho News. In
18S7 ho returned to his old home in
rather feeble health. Mr. Thayer
was an honorable Intelligent,
and genial gentleman, a kind
father and husband, an able journal
ist, and won tho friendship and
esteem of all who cunio in contact
with him. Mr. Thayer niadeanuin
bor of friends in this city wliilo here,
who will learn of his death with
