Portland ia just now wrestling with a com plication of conditions arising from the fact that some time ago the contract for doing the city printing wu let to an irresponsible publishing establishment. It was the Portland Daily Times that re ceived the contract, and after a brief ex istence it passed to realms from which It will not return. Time will come, per- baps, when people will learn better than to jnmpatevery irresponsible newspaper fake that floats in on an unsuspecting public with a mission only to purloin suid graft. ' ' ' Tsi action of the legislature in potting district attorneys on salary was a com mendable move. The district attorney of this district (5th) will hereafter be paid t4U00 a year. Bnt from that amount the law says most be paid a deputy in Clatsop county $000 per annum, 500 to deputies in both Clackamas and Wash ington, and $200 a year for a deputy in Colombia county. Mr. Cleeton will do all the work in this county, and thus wye 200 a year. The state pays the alary, and hereafter the county will not l called upon to pay district attorney's fees, as has heretofore been the custom, which will be a considerable saving. StxAToa Pobtkb's bill to provide for sheriffs collecting 10 cents mileage for services' in civil actions, is a good law but so far we have been unable to ascer tain when it becomes operative. It Is mm much of an injustice to ask the county through the sheriff to aerve papers in civil actions without compensation, as it would be to ask the cpunty to record a deed or any other document without compensation. If the law ia operative or soon to become so it would mean much for this county ; in fact, it would not be out of reason to state that the fees ac cruing under Its provisions would pay the sheriff's salary, or nearly so, at least. The enactment of the law repealing the fee system relative to those duties of the sheriff was actuated by bad motives, but its injustice to the people became too apparent, thus the latter act remedies the evil to a very great extent. INQUIRY FROM MAUVK. m (.testier JjIDoi, a miimiftri from the Ne- halein valley, was in town the early part ol uie woe. T. 3.

Barren Parma, Where) Tney Raise Know anal Mucous Hatter. . South Aasoa, Maine, Feb. 25, 1809. Mr. David Davis. St. Helens, Or. Dear Sir : have just read with deep interest your article in the Oregonian about Co lumbia county, and would like to learn more about it. Can you put me in the way of learning more about the educa tional and agricultural situation there T I am a teacher and my brother is, or wants to be, a farmer. Moreover, I have in the academy, under my charge, two boys in whom I am greatly interested. If they don't get out of this unholy climate Soon they and their older brother will soon be knocking at St. Peter's gate. Their father died of consumption. Now, why wouldn't it be a good idea for them to sell their barren little farm, where all you can raise is snow and mucous mat ter, and take np a homestead claim somewhere in Oregon T You can now judge what information I want) can you put me In the way of getting it i sincerely, A. a. uoao. VIEWED AS AN EXPERIMENT. Jail ig George's Opinion of the New Grand Jnrjr Law. Portland lawyers are much interested in the new law which does away with the grand jury as an intervening body, says the Oregonian, and differ in belief as. to the effect it will have on that stumbling block in the path of justice which Hamlet styled the law's delay, and viewed in the light of an induce ment to suicide. Judge George, under whose supervision the grand jury does business, when seen in regard , to the matter, said:' "The grand jury system is a very old one, and although it is very expensive, it is a safeguard in preventing one man who may have the power from prosecut ing another. Grand juries and district attorneys now work in conjunction, each acting as a check on the other. Free countries are obliged to have expensive machinery in order to insure the utmost liberty to the citizens. "In counties where circuit courts are in session only a week or two at a time considerable delay often results in bring ing the accused to trial. The law now acts as an improvement in these count ies, but the innovation is only an ex periment, and its ntility will have to be tested by time." The act has no emergency clause and will not go into effect for ninety days af ter its passage, which will be May 6th, having bwn approved by the governor iubiuary Ot,h. , . ,. ., . : The quiet wedding at A. F. Myers' residence Wednesday evening of last week united in marriage two of our well- known and respected young people, Mr. W. 8. Chandler and Mias Jennie, young est daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. F.

Smith officiated, and lew of the relatives and immediate friends were present as interested spec tators, me new couple have rone to housekeeping in a part of the Player house, where they are at home to their many friends, who wish them a long and nappy married lite. There was not a very lartre representa tion of the voters of district No. 6 at the meeting in Con yen' hall Monday after noon as compared to some like meetings in the past, but some interest was ex cited when the clerk reed the financial status of the district. On a second bal lot for director, Frank Merrill was elected for three years and 8. C. Tichenor was re-elected clerk for one year. The clerk reported 177 scholars as the result of his enumeration, while the teachers' reports snowed mat lie had attended school since the last annual meeting. The schools were reported in a satisfactory condition, out some ODiection was ex pressed to the levy of a 10-mill tax. This objection was promptly met. however. by the fact that the school is keeping all the houses filled and giving the town an enviable reputation as an educational centre, and at the close the sentiment seemed to be to keep the school going by au means. rived on the south-bound freight from the county seat. Spud will be glad to show his goods and state prices to the public ": 1 "-t" Mr. E. M. Dow has been suffering; a great deal the past month or, so with his head and heart, caused from a sunstroke some twenty-five years ago. On account of rain the first of the week, Uie beginning of work on the new Beaver and Forest Grove road was post poned until more setueu weauier. Mitchell thinks he has spotted his man, but before he gets through with it he niav wish he Had not bitten off such a large chew. Rob, you are barking up the wrong tree a. j. is not your man, ' Mr. John Young was In town Sunday, and he states that the citizens of his neighborhood are going to open a new road between his place on Beaver creek and Cummins place on Dairy creek. which will lie a great improvement on the old Cape Horn road, being much shorter and a great deal lees mountain ous. He estimates the grade to be no heavier than seven per cent, which will seem to those who have been compelled to travel the old road as nearly level, lie asks all that are interested In this road to give him their names and what help they can. The road ia now open, with the exception of a mile and a half, so one can get through with a empty wagon. ' BACHELOR FLATS. Mr. Salser Is making preparations to build a new barn 04xxs. B. F.

While here he put out some winter aiv pies of the beat variety, procured from the Holnday nursery. No doubt this is the best kind of fruit for Oreicon we have. We have an orchard put out 40 veara ago with trees purchased from Judge Lancaster for which we paid 26 eents each, and they are stilt bearing good fruit, wnen we put out our first on-hard there was no such a thing as fruit pta, and trees grew like Missouri corn.
