COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER Luther Burbank:, plant wizard of California, may come to Portland as one of the judges of the floral display at the festival ceuter. The festival governors will invite Burbank to Portland as a special guest. If he accepts the Invitation he will be asked to deliver lectures on rose culture In connection with the annual rose show at the armory. On July 5, Portland will entertain a distinguished party of business men and financiers from China, who will visit this section on a general busi ness survey of the Pacific Northwest. Oregon'B Oriental trade in grain, lum ber and manufactured products has - been increasing in importance for several years, largely as the result of a visit of prominent business men to China, and the visit here in July will be in the nature of a return call. The plan inaugurated about three months ago by the Portland Union Stockyards, whereby the school child ren of Oregon, Washington and Idaho, by signing a 10-months note at six per cent, could receive high-bred sows already bred and treated for cholera, has met with such unexpect ed success that it has been necessary to call a conference of the raisers of stock of that class to devise means for filling all the applications for stock. It is believed this campaign will be nation-wide in its effects on the industry. A movement has been started for the completion of the works of the Portland Cement Com pany at Oswego, which has been at a standstill for nearly three years. The buildings are ready for the machinery and the materials are at hand from which to make a high grade of ce ment. It is stated that recent sales of stock have been made amounting to over $300,000, and that the company has $50,000 on deposit. If the plant is put into operation it will be the only cement mill between Bellingham, Washington, and points in California. Governor James Withycombe has advised that the entire state de vote the period -of May 4 to 11, in clusive, to the cleaning and painting up of unsightly back yards and build ings. Mayor Albee has designated the same dates for the same work in Portland, and to insure that the work is done, and well done, the Portland Chamber of Commerce has appointed a committee from among its most en ergetic members to organize the diff erent sections of the city into effect ive units and exercise a general super vision over the work. St. Helens had a "clean-up" day, but there Is yet room for much improvement. laoiis; see to it that wo stand for law and order and for calm, careful judg ment on the part of the American government."

A few of the machines have already been ordered and will be distributed among the schools of the county which are located In the sections where dairying is carried on most ex tensively. The plan has the hearty sanction of the county school super intendent and the county agriculturist. Senator Porter J. McCumber, in speaking at the Eugene Commercial Club, recently said: "In our haste to bring about reform, we are aban doning the fundamental principles of government necessary for freedom we are adopting paternalist and soci alistic theories. We have adopted the ideas of a new school we are abandoning the constitutional prin ciples and drifting out to the sea of ever varying public fancy. We look to the theory that we no longer need a constitution to check us and that nothing should stand in our way. Our ancestors did need a constitution and they knew that the American people required a constitution tested by cen turies to bind the people. Every par agraph of the constitution is for tho protection of the minority against the dangers of the majorities political and religious intemperance. Gen tlemen, the great problem confront ing America today la the duty to cre ate a careful and conservative Ameri can citizenship. Let us see to It that our foreigners are taken into our schools and sent out as American cit- tures that will not only provide enter tainment for tho multitude, but set forth fully the practical bearings of the open river to the development of a great region exceeding the German Empire in extent. Specially charter ed steamboats will make the journey to and fro between Astoria, Portland and other points, to Lcwlston, Idaho, and return. Special trains will per form a battledore and shuttle-cock stunt in carrying the people to vari ous celebration points and return The week promises to witness the time; but It keeps ono In tho open air.

The human interest of the occasion centers in the participation of the old timers, who have been prominent in the development of the Pacific North west, as well as In the visitation ot the great men ot the nation and of the Northwest who will be the guests of honor at various points, and the orators of the week. Prominent among the former is Captain William Pope Gray of Pasco, Washington, who has been designated Admiral in com mand of a fleet of steamboats, nearly a score In number, which will make the journey from Lewiston, Idaho, five hundred miles inland, to Astoria, the port of entry of the Columbia river. Admiral Gray has named an official staff of admirals, assistant ad mirals, vice admirals, rear admirals, etc., covering the list of retired and active steamboat men and men en gaged In transportation service of the Pacific Northwest, supplemented by an honorary staff list, embracing men high in business circles. While great features are proposed at all points of celebration interest naturally centers in the formal dedi catory exercises of The Dalles-Celilo canal at Big Eddy, where the United States engineers and their staff who' have had the responsibility of con struction will have the happy privi lege of turning over the completed work in tho presence of a vast con stituency. Estimates of the number of people who will bo in attendance at Big Eddy vary from 15,000 to1 30,000. Lewiston, Idaho, has the honor of staging the initial celebration on May 3rd, as the farthest Inland navigation center of the Pacific Northwest and, to quote the languago of the late Senator W. B. Hepburn: "Idaho's only seaport." Tho curtain will ring down on the drama at Astoria, the pioneer city founded by John Jacob As tor, on the shores of the Pacific. ago. This is due to Increased taxes, fixed charges and competition. As an instance of how we have tried to cut unnecessary expense, I will say we haven't painted our street cars since last August." GOVERNMENT ROADS. With tho beginning of good weath er conditions, the Forest Service construction work has resumed activity, notably in southern Wash ington where two projects are being carried on in co-operation with Ska mania county. One ot these projects is in the Wind River valley, and the other In the Little White Salmon val ley. The work In White Salmon valley will consist In building a road that will be a continuation of the county road running from Cook, on the Co lumbia river, up the White Salmon valley to the forest boundary, a dis tance of seven miles. The govern ment road will extend from Lava Creek bridge near the forest bound ary on up the valley for several miles ending eventually at the Oklahoma Ranger station. The White Salmon valley Is a rich agricultural country and a continuous roadway will mean much to the people living in that sec tion. The county has agreed to con tribute $4000 toward the building of this road, and the government will contribute an equal sum. scandul at both ends, to quoto some thing we saw somewhere Though a New York court decides that all a wifo earns belongs to her husband, it won't alter the unwritten law under which a man gives his pay envelope to his wlfo every week.

Prejudice and reason speak two different languages ono that of Hottentots, the other that of Platos, Saint Johns and Shakespeares. Neith er can comprehend and communicate with the other. "u'i TWENTY YEARS AGO The Mist, April 28, 1895. Deputy Sheriff Blukesley went to Nohulcm yesterday morning to sum mon jurors for the May term of cir cuit court. Jacob George Is having his houso on the hill painted and pupered, and In a general way muklng It ready for occupancy. Deputy Clerk Harris went to Vor nonla yesterday to visit his family, who have been on the sick list for somo time. Sheriff and Mrs. C. F. Doan spent Sunday In Heaver valley tho guests of Judge Doan and family, returning home Monday. The effort of the city council to ro duce expenses Is commendable and wo hope the running expenses of the city will be reduced to the lowest possiblo notch consistent with good govern ment. It is not Tight to pay an ofllclul a high salary for doing practically nothing. No man should receive pub lic money unless ho earns It. .With reference to the office of city marshal, we believe that official should only receive fees for what he actually doec. and would thereby render more satis- LUNCH AT MASON'S RUTHERFORD BUILDING.
