Next Monday Oregon's pardon ma chine will cease to run, and after clearing up the offall tho criminal courts can enjoy a much needed rest. Pennoyer operated the mill success fully, making tho biggest turn-out on record. It has been whispered around that a bunk is soon to bo started in St. Helens. Such an Institution finan cially strong, managed by reliable business men would no doubt be n success as well as a convenience to the public. Commissioner Schoonovcr, of Ver nonia, camo over Tuesday to attend the regular Jununry term of county court. Ho reports four feet of snow ou the mountains between St. Hel ens and Vernonia, making travo' between the two places almost Im possible The river at this place last Sat urday morning was full of suwlogs, which were said to havo come from the Willamette. They woro mixed In with floating Ice and some drift wood. People along the Bliores with small boats wore busy picking up logs a good part ot the day. Articles of incorporation were filed with the secretary of state last Thursday, incorporating the Oregon Construction Company, which will have its principal office nt. Astoriu. The capital stock Is placed at $3,000, 000. It has been suggested that the;, will build tho Coblo road. Hon. T. J. Cleeton was in town yesterday morning and left on the afternoon boat for Salem to attend the' legislature. Mr. Cleeton has been putting In some timo famlliarlz ing himself with tho needs of his constituents and goes to Salem with a number of measures framed, which ho hopes to reccivo favornllo action upon, and anticipates some good work accomplished by tho body In tho interest of the people. Mr. A. Holaday, nurseyman of Scappoose, Inform us that he sold all his apples this year at $1 per box. Quality will always regu late tho price, and there Is always a demand for tho superior art cln. Mr. Holaday raises fruit for a busi ness, and consequently strives to keep up the quality, thereby com manding the best price In tho mar ket. Other fruit growers nny do the samo thing if they will give tho at tention to their orchards that they should. We have been Informed by a gen tleman faimliar with the document that a bill has been framed and will be presented to the legislature, by the people of Rainier, asking that tho people of Columbia county may be allowed to vote on tho re-location of thee ounty seat. The bill pro vldos, as we 'are Informed, that at the next general election tho ques tion of changing tho county seat will bo submitted to the people, and that in caBe of no place receiving a ma jority cf all votes cast, a second vote will be taken on the two highest can didates at tho general election fol lowing. In another column will bo found an article from the pen of a Clncka amas county road builder, which is worthy the consideration of the peo ple of this county. Better roads are needed, and If tho theory outlined by the writer could be put Into practice In this or any other county, tho peo ple of the state of Oregon would be much better oft than they are, fi nancially speaking. No great ad vance can be poped for in the tim bered counties of this state until tho road systems have readied a greater Btate of perfection, and the sooner there is some system Inaugurated that will meet witli the Ideas and fi nances of those counties tho sooner we are going to enjoy a more healthy growth. Consider tho points ot tho article rofered to and see how much you can Improve upon It. A FRESH SHAVE Adds lone to any man. That's why we are so busy and there are so many tony people in this town. 15 Cents Tone. LYNCH & GIBBS, Si. Helem, Oregon HAXK STATEMENT. Report of tho Condition f No. IH.
