Second Day of Commencement

W. L. Klmsey, the blacksmith at
Meiiaina, is seriously sick. tor.
Pratt is attending him.
A paper in the Finnish language
will soon be started in Astoria. It
will be independent in politics and
devoted to the interest of the Fin
Jlilltnry Target Range.
Col. Thos. C. Smith, commanding
the second regiment, O. X. G., has
jut received the plans of the third
regiment target range at The Dalles,
from Col. C. E. Morgan, the
commander of that regiment, and
is now casting about for some person
willing to donate suitable ground
near this city, for a range nere. A
250 yard level range with n bluff at
the rear is the most desirable
ground, and there should be some
one near town with such ground
who would be willing to donate it
to the regiment for that purpose.
Col. Smith has his eyes open, how
ever, and will probably succeed in
getting a satisfactory range soon,
when the target, shooting box and
markers, house will be built, and
target practice begun.
The Farmers' Alliance.
At 2 o,clock to-day, delegates from
all the counties in the "Willamette
valley gathered at the opera house,
and organized a farmers' congress,
which will probably become a
branch of the farmers' allainco of
the United States. M. Wilkins, of
Lane county, was elected president,
John Osborn, of Marion, vice-president,
and Jos. Gaston, of Washing
ton, secretary and treasurer.
Messrs. Miller, Ferguson and Minto
were appointed n committee to re
port by-laws to the next meeting.
Several of tho most prominent farm
ers in the valley are in attendance,
and they will continue in session all
this evening and possibly to-morrow.

that his name is John P. as some
of the more partisan politicians
might claim Senator John P.
Waster, the democraticeditorofthe
Pendleton East Oregonian, is still
dazed over the result, and it is said
lie is seriously contemplating com
mitting matrimony. Tho troubles
of married life will soon make John
P. forget the minor troubles of
polities. Our friend "Wager will
lind himself more hopelessly in the
minority after ho gets married then
even now. "Wo wish him joy.
News as is News.
A Portland morning daily has a
very interesting item that recalls
times long since gone by tu the re
porter of tho Jouknaij. It is an
item that reminds tho writer how
time Hies, and how our works live
after us. This item was written and
appeared in this paper about tho 18th
of May last, and recited tho fact
that Hon. C. C. Beekmau had just
presented warrants for a largo sum
of money, to the State Treasurer.
Verily, this is "news as is news,"
and the older nows is the better. '

The university campus was tho
scone of a happy gathering last eve
ning, tho occasion being a lawn
sociable, and concert under the

electing officers and their terms of
service; tho basis of representation
in the lower house of congress, and
the general principles and practices

great promptitude, and elected.
At 10 o'clock Miss Cunningham

Salem is one of the most attrac
tive cities in the world. This Is the
evidence of every visitor.
Salem is picturesquely laid out, on
a natural slope which extends back
from the river.
Salem has beautiful broad streets.
Salem has splendid shado trees in
Salem has many elegant homes,
surrounded by wido lawns, well
cared for, within which enclosures
grow all sorts of beautiful ilowers.
shrubs, trees and vines indigenous
Salem has handsome public build
ings, around which are spacious
grounds in a poor state of repair.
fcalem has excellent business
blocks, in which are kept for sale
everything one would think to wish
Salem's roadways are in a good
condition for travel.
Salem has numerous and hand
some churches, and the best educa
tional institutions in the stato.
Salem has many other very attrac
tive features, among which perhaps
the greatest Is our climate.
But tills city lias one thing which,
unless attended to soon, will act as
a "counter irritant" and an "anti
dote" for any one who might other
wise be Induced to tarry with us.
Skirting numerous blocks in this
city and notably the blocks on Stato
street between Winter ami 12th and
on 12th street between Stato and
Mill, are someof the worstIdewalks
ever walked over by any body In a
city of Salem's pretensions. This
walk adjoins tho property of one of
the wealthiest institutions of learn
ing in the state, and by Its side is a
"tumble down, gone-to-rack-and-ruin
fence" that;is a disgrace to tho
town. This last might be removed,
and no damaage bo done. The
former should be repaired.
In numerous other parts of the
city, the walk is as bad. Adjoining
the Congregational church property,
Is a bad piece of walk ; on the north
side of Chemekcta street, between
Cottage and Church, and many other
places. The Journal would like
to seo Improvements all around the
city. At least the sidewalks should
be made safe for pedestrians.
