Why Come to Oregon.
Those who seek u inildernnd more
equable clime than thut found cast
of the llockles are solicited to conic
to this coast. Desirable immigra
tion h wanted. It is not advisable
to come here with no money, but for
a man who has a few hundred dol
lars no better field for investment
can be found. There is no better
place for home building, because we
have a country rich in undeveloped
resources and now at tlu very
threshold of her future progress and
"greatness. Especially is It true that
as a fruit growing region, Marion
county has no superior in the world,
as far as the standard varieties of
fruit Is concerned.
THE AORICULTURAL COLLKUE.
Salem has seldom been able to
congratulate herself on thc.character
of the pictures of the city that have
appeared in publications from time
to time, but now It seems as though
something really valuable and at
tractive will bo given us. Sketches
are being made of our leading in
stitutions and thoroughfares for pro
duction In tho West Shore Magazine
for January. A large group of por
traits of members of the legislature
will accompany the number as a
special supplement, and will con
tain a splendid engraving of the
Capitol building. The whole will
make a showing for Salem that we
need not he ashamed of.
More li.iml for Kntry.
The clerk of the state land board
has received the olllcial survey of
the Warner Lake Swamp lands in
.Luke county, made in 1887 by J. II.
Neil, United States deputy surveyor,
which has been approved by the
commissioner of the general land
olllce at Washington. The state
claims the laud embodied in this
survey as swamp lands, being the
bed of a meandered lake which, by
natural changes in the formation of
tho country, has ceased to be a lake.
The approval of the survey throws
theso lauds npou to entry, and will
enable tho adjustment of all con
ilicting claims between settlers.

The Capital Journal learns
that A. Bush has in contemplation
tho erection, in early spring, of a
lino brick block at tho old Drey
corner. This is on tho corner of
Commercial and Court streets and

worth to that section. Tho block of

Driven From Corvallis by Litigation.
It May Come to Salem.
The readers of the Capital Joun
nal are familiar with tho recent de
cision of the supremo court in the
State Agricultural College case.
It leaves the sUito virtually without
a title to the lauds upon which the
college Is located.
Tho question of ownership is a
mooted one, as well as being one
which we will not hero attempt to
discuss. It is between the church
and tho state, with a decision of the
supremo court' favorable to the
As tho matter now stands no ad
ditioualJlmprovemenU or appropria
tions will bo made by tho stato for
tho support or maintenance, of their
institution. From all parts of the
state petitions are pouring in pray
ing that no more money bo expend
ed upon this college and farm, tho
title to which is clouded. Hinging
resolutions embodying the same
prayer are being passed by tho sev
eral farmers' organizations and
granges throughout tho state.
By tho laws of the Btate of Oregon
the state buildings and institutions
shall all bo located at tho capital.
As Oregon must have an agricultu
ral college within her borders an
effort is being made to secure tho
removal of this experiment station
to Salem, where it rightfully be
longs. The matter of tho establish
ment of this college hero is being
agitated by the Salem grange which
will bo ablv seconded by many of
tho granges and a majority of the
citizens throughout the state.
Inquiries on The Increase.
The Board of Trade Is in receipt of
a number of Inquiries every day
from parties in tho East, North and
South who are searching for a
milder region. The letters received
now will average fifty per day. A
good many are from Missouri, more
from Nebraska and Iowa and most
from Kansas. Tho farmers com
plain that in the grasshopper state
they have not been able Jo raise a
good crop for three years, have re
duced themselves to poverty in an
attempt to keep body and soul to
gether and must get away while
they are able. Oregon craves im
migration nut she oilers no special
inducements to thoso who have no
money to start with. Oregon needs
capital as much if not more
than people. Gradually we are at
tracting to us Eastern capital. This
is what wo need in tho development
of our resources.

Attorneys for the appellants in the

the use of sui plus ballot paper ob
tained of tho secretary of stato for
ono election, to be used at a subse
quent election. This section pro
vides, that ballots used at ono elec
tion shall all be of the same color
and appellants contend that to make
this provision effective, as a law,
that ballot paper must bo obtained
for each specified election, so that
the secretary of stato can furnish all
political parties paper of uniform
color, thus securing absolute secrecy
at the ballot box.
