TWESTV-FITE DOLLARS . OREUOX TO Very Lew Rate Sow Available 80,1)00,000 Pe pie for No newt that has been received by the peopfe of Oregon during the last twenty-four months is so important as the announcemei t triat the trans-continental railroads will makea rate, be- ginni g March 1st and continuing until ' April 30th, from Kansas City, Omaha,'. St. Paul and Minneapolis, Winnipeg and other glmilarly situated towns, to all main line railroad points in Oregon for $25.00. The people of so state in the Union have profited more by these one-way tickets than have those of Oregon dur ing the last four yean. The mte fioin Chicago is 33, from Rt. Louis 30.50, with a proportionate low fare from all points in the United States. This shouM add many thousand of actual witl.rs to tlie population of Oregon, fh- se ar one-way liik-ts, and if tra vellers desire to return to their former home in the older Eastern states, they would bave lo pay full fare. Every Commercial Club and adver tising bureau in the State, as 11 as every real estate firm, should tegin im mediately W advertise these rates. Ev ery citizen of Oregon should write per sonal letters to old friends and acquaint ances reminding them that tbe rate is good 1 1 their town. But the ticket must bebougiitto the point of destination it' just as cheap to the most distant Oregon point as to one just over the border of the State. The Oregonian insists that there is no louver a Republican party in Oreuon. It said something like thai prior to the November election, yet Taft received a very comsortable majority. The bill for an additional appropria tion for the Seattle show should he de feated. The firm of Well rung fe Wisdom can get alor.g nicely on its present cap tal. Now that it ha been demonstrated that an election infant an election, pos fiii'ly our great leaders will abandon the dan of voting for a Democrat in older to elect a Republican .
