The gontluman were desirous of viiiiting the Nehalem country, especially to see the iron and coal deposits. They procured means of conveyance on Sunday mid started on their journey. It has been stated to us on several oc casions that the now plan of rosd work, or tho methods employed in the expen diture of county road funds, is proving a very satisfactory nisunor of conduct ing that important work. Of course, It takes time for newly-inaugurated plans and methods to start to working smoothly, but it is believed that when the plan fa thoroughly understood and the supervisors have had opportunity to demonstrate their purposes, it will be considered that the adoption of the plan was very conservative and wise. The RuUibono Sisters of this city wore favored last Friday evening by an otllcial visit from their Urand Chief, Mrs. Cora M. Davis, of Union. The Grand Chief is a modest, unassuming lady, yet what she does not know re garding the workings of the order would bo of little benefit to anyone. Bhe imparted some very valuable infor mation to tho local Hitters, which will be of lasting benefit. As a menus of en tertainment a luncheon was indulged in and all present seemed to thoroughly enjoy the event. Mrs. Davis expects to visit tho local temple again soon.

Kiitertaliimoiit lly Vouiik taitles a Ui'uml Muciinss. The people who attended the enter tainment given last Huturday night by the young ladies of this city to False a fund to ndd a fow volumes tg the school Horary, re unanimous in commending the ellort and congratulating those tak ing part in the entertainment upon the success which attended tiie ellort. The programme required over two hours in Its rendition, encores wore heartily given, and there were several numbers which were worth tlm n.ln.iii alone. The instrumental selections by Misses iiiirr. KugliHh and ltoss, of Fort land, on violins and piano, woro heartily enjoyed by every one present. The choruses were not only well rendered mn wore iiiorougmy enjoyed, and brought the fact prominently to notice that tit. Helens talent, in that respect, morns praiseworthy remarks. Miss Mary Convert, of Oregon City, by her vocal solo, "Day Dreams'', earned the numerous complimentary remarks heard uiroiigiiout the audience in her behalf. Miss Jennie Ullson. of Houltun. nlimkt.il the audience on two occasions by her uiiiiiiiim voice in sweetly ana cutely rendering the pieces selected by her. Mr, Clueton's opening address contained many vaiuuoie suggestions, and his rea nation, "Die Vagabonds," was well renilereU and much enjoyed. Some thing that is always pleasing to an in telligent audionce, such as wat present Saturday evening, is a Shakespearean recital, and Mrs. Dillard's reading of a selection from "Julius Caesar" was so well rendered as to make it doubly inter osting. The comio opera by Mioses ilikunnd Way and Messrs. Cleveland and Davis was reieated bv rconoat on this occasion, and was well received by the audience, ludirintr bv the mmeroua applause which was given them. The special feature of the evening's enter- uiiiiiiieiii was tne wand drill by sixteen ladies. The costumes the participants worn worn uniijue ana attractive and the manner In which the march and uriii wore executed merited and re ceived approving remarks from every- uiiu present, it iieinonstraicu care in preparation and skill and enemy in its execution. Mrs. Hubert is also deserv ing of nrniso for her cureful attention and well rendered musie during the uiarcn ami uriii. Altogether, tne enter tainment wss complete success in every particular, and tho ladies are de' nerving of much credit for devoting tncir time and ellort in the praiseworthy undertaking of adding a number of books to tho school library, which al ready contains a few volumes of valua ble books. The amount collected at the door was t and after the ex tunnies were all paid the neat sum of fUl.OO was turned over to a committee who will felect and purchase the hook. We have been requested by those having the matter in charge to thank everyone who assisted in the programme or iu any way helped them in their efforts to make the atlair a success. ADDITIONAL, I.OCAIi. A case started In the Justice Court of this precinct last week, wherein the state was plaintiff seainst Ed l.anibor- son, of Kcappooso, and Tony Karlmr, as private prosecutor, was settled, out of court lust Monday. The controversy grew out of supposed individual prop erty rights, but both parties agreed to certain contract stipulations and the settlement was much the wisest courm to pursue. In the Circuit Court for this county was filed a suit, on Thursday of last week, by Daniel C. ltowors, guardian sd litem of Curtis 0. Bowers, aiisimit J. 11. Peterson, and the Star Logging Com pany, of Beaver Valley, for fc!l, 000 dam ages alleged to have been sustained by Curtis C. Bowers, an infant, who was employed as brakoman on a logging train. The sum for damages is churned by reason of the use of a defective car upon which plaintiff was employed as briikemsn, and who, through accident, suHtained the loss of an arm. The case will be tried at the coming term of Circuit court. A meeting of the bicyclists of this place. Warren and 8eapiooao has been called for Warren on Saturday, at which time it is hoped to perfect the organiza tion of a local bicyelo club and provide means for promoting the plan of con structing n bicycle path from St. Hel ens to the county line toward Multno mah couuty. This is a movement that should meet with encouragmeiit from all cyclists. Itt construction would not only afford means of enjoyment, but would havo a tendency to iienellt the entire noighliorhood financially. Let a good attendance be bad nt the Warren meeting tomorrow. Bills aro posted announcing the lec ture, "Among the Rocks," by Rov. li. (J. Alvord, of Fortland, to be given at the Methodist church, at lloulton, Sat urday, May 6th. This was to have been given April 20th, but was postponed. In this lecture, Mr. Alvord presents in a conversational stylo, the very interest ing features of tho study of Ueology, illustrating it with over sixty storcopti can views, with excellent light. The views include some of the most wonderful and most notod displays of nature on tho globe, as: Limestone caves, geysers, glaciers, voleanos, etc. The admission has been reduced to 15 cents for adults; children 10 cents. With a view to settling up tho busi ness affairs of tho Fittsburg Mill Com pany, there was an examination of the accounts of the company conducted in tills city on Tuesday. The stockholders' interests were looked after by Judge Pipes, of Fortland, and interests of the secretary and manager, Mr. W. I). Case, were guarded by Attorney Cole, of this place. The accounts and books of the company were found to have been well, honestly and carefully kept, as was stated by Mr. Pipes, and the business of the company, except the misfortune of a series of accidents, such as dnma washing out, tiros and other unavoidable occurrences, were found to be in good condition, and in the hands of Mr. Cane will continue to be carefully lookod after as has been the case in the' past. Forbearance will sometime cease to bo a virtue, and we've concluded that the time has "nrriv" to call a halt on al lowing conies of our natier to loave the oltlce during the process of printing and until we are ready to hike tne wnoie kh off to the postoliioe, an establishment maintained by the government for dis tributing mail. Our papers are sent to the postofllce each Thursday afternoon before 5 o'clock, and if our friends will call at that establishment for their paper instead of at this office it will save us the unpleasantness of refusing the request, and you the unpleaaantness of being refused.

Mr. Allen was ettim; our people know he is a candidate, and expects to come in later in the campaign and deliver an address on the issues of the duy. Anyone curious to know whether Prieslers new stump puller will really pull a stump out of the ground, can see what it has done by looking over W. K. Ticlienor's field near his residence. The number and size of stumps and roots that are scattered over that field outside the ground that protected them for so many years, suggests that some very powerful force lias been brought to bear to dislodge them. Priesler and his ma chine and a team of horses did it. The roots are there to show for themselves and the machine is there too, unless it has been removed very lately. As a puller it is a little giant, and no mistake. Wanted : A brass band, at "Duke's." Save time and money by dealing with Collins & Uray, St. Helens.

The orchard pest known as the "Green Aphis" has failed to show up so far this spring in this part of Oregon, at least.

Through fumily difficulties he left his old home about two years ago, and had since been living with some friends in Portland. He was 8(1 years of age, and his mind was clear to the last. Kellogg'a New Boat. From all reports it seems that this year is to witness a revival in steam boat building that has not been seen for many years on the Columbia. The latest contract for a new river boat lias been let by the Kellogg Trans portation Co. to the Portland Shipbuild ing Co. The now steamer is to take the place of the Joseph Kellogg, but will be a slightly larger boat, and is expected to lie faster. Her dimensions will be : Length, 140 feet; beam, 2d feet; depth of hold, 0-5 feet. She will have the same engines and boiler as are now in the Joseph Kellogg, and a portion of tiie house of tho old boat may be used in the now one.

Free silver at 16 to 1, anti-expansion and Bryan are the demands of the f un ionists of Oregon, and on the tide it is understood that desire for office is the momentious incentive. It wat surprising to the Democrats of Ohio that Brother-in-Law John R. Mc Leod was to send an uninstructed dele gation to Kansas City. But Mrs. Dewey hat explained tho mystery. The Silver Republicans have decided to call themselves "Lincoln" Republi cans. That is enough to make honest old Abe turn over in hit grave. Lincoln never favored any legislation that would allow a dishonest man to defraud his creditors under cover of the law. As a kicker the Democratic party is a screaming success. As a clog on the wheels of progress it beats the air brake. As a promisor it outpromises the man who never pays his debts. But when it comes to keeping its pledges the record has an entirely different complexion. Wm. J. Bryan in delivering speeches for the Inst several months has not men tioned "the low price of wool, sheep, cattle, goats," or that farm products fol low in price the declining value of sil ver." lie has possibly forgotten that line of argument for reasons not entirely known to himielf alone, however. The Populist party formerly advocated that unless the management of the gov ernment was turned over to their tender care, and both old parties thrown out, me country would go to "tne ban," but they have so far changed their minds as to concede that it will be belter to tutu it over to them and the Democrats. This is evidence that they are progressing a little. Their ideas may continue to im prove until thev may conclude that it is better in the hands of the Republican party alone. Corvallia Gazette. Some of the Democratic papers which were howling two or three years ago mac tne aonar was going ud and ail commodities goingdown, are now shriek ing that the dollar is declining and everything else it increasing. They do not seem to understand that it is the prosperity that has made the change. and that the Republican party is respon sible for the prosperity. Whenever times are good the prices of labor and of all sorts of merchandise go up. This is what is taking place now. If the Democrats and Populists were wise they would keep silent. By their outcries they are call ing attention to a state of things which will make lots of Republican votes now and hereafter. Aetorian. The Populist party started out in this state with a great flourish of trumpets a few years ago, and directed its batteries against the Republican and Democratic parties, as the instruments through which all tho baneful influences that were sapping the Nation's lifeblood were working their destructive purposes. It smote and spared not. It was second in numerical strength in the state as a political organization; then it flirted with Democracy and lost its place. Now there is a union between the good Popu lists who started to do up the Republi cans and Democrats, because they were ixitn pad, and the sen tame iiemocrats. for they are no better than they were wnen tney came in for denunciation m Populist platforms. Verily, politics will make strange bedfellows, says the For est (Jrove Times. VALLEY ITEMS. N. J. Dupont visited his parents for a few days lust week. Joseph Dupont has arrived home from a Portland hospital. Raiu is promised, but a shower after the pleasant weather might benefit veg etation. Mr. C. L. Ayers has purchased a pair of Jersey heifers, the starter for a dairy herd. The school it closed for one week on account of a contagion of la grippe among the pupils. Unstamped Deeds. A matter pertaining to the handling of deeds and other legal instruments which may come to the County Re corder of Conveyances with no revenue stamp amxed is mentioned in a waen ington dispatch which savs that the Commissioner of Internal Revenue has received a number of inquiries from Uniotnra 1n.l rU.W. nt rn,... and others, asking whether they would Do justified in recording deeds, etc., which are sent to them unstamped. They represent that deeds are-often re ceived from persona who cannot conven iently procure stamps, asking that they be affixed by the Recorder. The Com missioner answers in the negative, and in his reply states that the grantee or person who makes or issues the instru ment, should affix and cancel the stamp. If he omits to do so, he incurs a penalty of not more than f 100. If however, the omission is inadvertent, he may pres ent the instrument to the collector within a year from the date of issue, pay the stamp tax, and present the in strument for post-stamping. The Com missioner advises that when an un stamped Instrument for record be received, it be returned to be stamped, charge for postage and the time occu pied in the correspondence made nec essary by the omission of the stamp.

It is an off year, indeed, in Oreeon politict when tome new features or phases of party managemement or pol icy is not developed. In almost every campaign something new or interesting turns up politically in uregon. At tne National capital the oldtimers in official life are always looking for something to happen out of the ordinary in Oregon politict. One of Oregon'! first Senators became a candidate for Vice-president. Another Oregon Henator, reputed to lie the most eloquent orator in the land, resizned hit seat to take command of a regiment, and wat killed immediately afterward in tne Mairs wuu Diunaer. The ereat Tilden-Hayee electoral con test was largely fought out over an Ore gon vote. Oregon furnished a member of Grant's Cabinet, and a former Senator whose rugged sense and rude wit gained for him a National reputation. Oregon's constitution prohibited the entrance into the state of ncorroos or mulattos. and welcomed "the left wing of Price's army." After the war, Oregon elected several Republican Governor's, and then Pennoyer. Orcaon has furnished several Senatorial deadlock's, and twice has elected a Senator at almost the last minute of the session. Oregon finally sent to the Senate its only Hebrew member and now certain citizens and Democrats of Multnomah County have nominated an interesting and in a polit ical aspect, rather a curious Legislative ticket. Some Democrats are displeased with it, some Republicans are a little afraid of it, and whatever happens to it, there ia the satisfaction of realizing that Oregon is keeping up its reputation, in a small wav at least, and doing some thing politically that is unique if not startling, and that is worth the dime ad mission to the performance.
