Hon, T. T, Geer, of Marion
county, is making a trip in Cali
fornia, and has visited the jute
mills there. He gives some facts
in a letter to the Oregoniau:
"Before this jute mill was erected
the prison labor in California was
employed in various industries, but
chiefly in the manufacture of furni
ture. Everything was goiu& on
smoothly and perfectly when the
Denis Kearnev element began to
declaim against the competition of
convict labor with free labor, and
the result was the discontinuance
of all kinds of labor except jute
Large furniture stores in San
Francisco, dealt in the prison pro
ducts, and it was claimed that this
deprived men here who would ether
ise have work and be prosperous;
but th warden told Ilie tll:lt sines
the jute mill was started these same
furniture dealers instead of manu
facturing furniture here and em-
yiiig luic men, get ail their sup.

had to be abandoned, and are now
not used for any purpose what
ever. This direct loss to the state
was about $250,000. The jute mill.
as it now stands, has cost the state
near $500,000, and there is a gen
eral under-current of opinion that
it will prove a bad investment,
For various reasons the bags
made by convict labor are not of a
good quality. No man who works
for nothing and by compulsion is
going to be careful. There are
many kinds of work that lie can
not Khirk, however, if he works at
all, but spinning and weaving are
not any of these. No superinten
dent, however faithful, can be
present at all the looms all the time.
and a broken thread, or a dozen of
them, for that matter, can be
passetl over without any one's
knowledge but the operator.
A broken thread now and then
means little or nothing to a convict
operator, who knows lie will not
lose his job, no matter what he
does, but with the farmer who
hurridly pours a bushel of wheat
into a defective sack when he is
threshing, the consequences stands
for something.
There is another reason why
convict bags are poor in quality.
Most men 111 all prisons are sent
up for comparatively short terms.
and about the time one becomes
somewhat skilled in the use of a
loom his term expires and a new
man must take his place.
These facts account for the situa
tion now exisiting at San Quentin.
There are now over 1,250,000 bags
on hand at the jute mill for which
there is no demand, although thev
are offered for a quarter of a cent
less than imnorted Imo-s A,,
. 0, - - .
farmer can see at a glance that a
mere quarter of a cent on a sack
is not worth considering when
there is a marked difference in the
quality in the article.
There is a jute mill in Oakland
run by free labor, of nearly euual
capacity, which I also visited, and
the quality of the goods is so pro
nounced in its favor that one can
readily see the difference, and the
proprietor told me could not nearly
supply the demand for his sacks."
Among the attract ions advertised
for the 4th of July celebration 11 1
Forest Grove is the marriage of two
couples during the day on the pub
lic platform. It is safe to bet that
if these people who have no more
resect f,r the in .rriage rites than
to make a public spectacle of them
selves, continue to reside in that
county that witlii i a few years they
will make another public demon
stration, but it ill be in the dis
trict court room.
There is a grov inr belief among
the x.-ople that Hamilton, Job
Co. failure was not
legitimate in
every particular. 1 lie books and
paper, are ; aid to be in poor shaj,
and a total lack if profits in the
business is made to appear, when
it was generally Ixlicvcd that the

One comical feature about the
Hamilton & Job failure, is that
men had money on dejiosit at the
bank when it bursted that never
was known to have a dollar ahead
The statement of the Corvallis
Times last week that Lincoln coun
ty had $4,000 on deposit in the de
funct Corvallis bank is erroneous.
The treasurer had $575 on deposit
at Yaquina, while the sheriff had
about $400 in checks and drafts, a
greater part of which he will recover.
The Corvallis Gazette pokes con
siderable fun at Lincoln County
about the school mouev business and
calls it a serial or continued story.
The name is certainly an extremely
good one and expresses the situa
tion much better than plain words
can. Our friend, the Gazette.

advanced from among her friends
and attempted to arouse him. She
struck him several blows, when he
suddenly jumped up and made a
dash for her. She fled, and the
chase, which continued for several
yards, was only interrupted in time
by the dogs, on whom the bear
turned, when within a couple of
feet of Miss Hristow. The inci
dent taught the party a lesson and
the animal was speedily despatched.
orvallis limes.
A German, from Nebraska, ar
rived in Corvallis a few days before
the Hamilton & Job burst up, and
bought a farm near that city, pay
ing $200 to bind the bargain. On
the day before the bank closed he
deposited the balance of the pay
ment, $4,000, 111 the bank about
half past three o'clock with Hip
agreement that the deed was to be
deposited next mnrtnno- mwt ilm
money paid over to the seller of the
farm. The sequel was, that the
bank never opened next morning
and the German's money, which
was all he had, home and all were
gone. The man had a large family
and is a stranger in the land. He
has pa seil his fiftieth mile stone
and is on the downward decline of
life. These are the alleged facts as
told to this writer. If true the
men who accepted that man's mon
ey, knowing that they were steal
ing it, ought to lie sent to the jeni
tentiary for ten years. They are
not as resiiectuble as the robber on
the highway.
The man from Astoria who stole
a loaf of bread tuappca.se his bun
ger was sentenced and served three
years in the penile. itiary. The men
who tole $ ,,000 of a poor German's

money by taking it on driwsit a
half hour before their bank bursted
will never be tried. The result of
this will be that at least two an-

home legally stolen from bim, ihut
there is any juxtice in the law as
administered, and he cuu't reason

Military Imlian Aypnts.
Friday's Oregonfan contained the
statement that Trcsident Cleveland
had fully determined to adhere
strictly to the letter of law, and ap
point no one but military officers
as Agents at the various Indian
Agencies in the west. It is sin
cerely to be hoped that the report
is similar to many that the Oregon
inn's correspondent has been send
ing from time to time the veriest
bosh. It would be nothing short
of a great calamity to ninny of the
agencies in the west. Take it on
the agencies where the Indians are
as highly civilized as they are at
the Siletz agency, or the Grand
Ronde agency, or in fact any of the
agencies on the coast, the placing
of them under the harsh control of
the military would be extremely
detrimental. The Indians at the
Siletz are well civilized, perfectly
law-abiding and are engaged in the
various pursuits of civilized lifr,
They are happy, prosperous ami
contented. They are almost fully
able to take care of themselves, and
all they need is some one in the
capacity of agent to look after their
business interests and keep up their
schools, etc. To place them under
strict military control would be irk
some and nonproductive of good.
There is nothing in common be
tween the military and the Indians.
The government has been to great
expense and trouble to eradicate the
idea of war and to wiu them to
peaceful pursuits, and to abandon
that idea at this time is extremely
ill-advised. A military man who
has made the science of war a study
for years, would know nothing of
the Indian's farm, his stock, his
grain, hay and other produce.
Their schools would not interest
him. What such agencies aa the
Siletz need are agents selected from
the Civil list who are competent,
and who is in sympathy with them in
their efforts toward high civiliza
tion. The Siletz Indians under
such agents will be fully self-sup
porting. He is encouraged and
instructed on his farm, he is helped
to breed a higher grade of
stock, a market is found
for his produce, and to look after
his business interests generally, for
the Indians from environments and
and nature are not permitted to
know these things. These things
could not and would not be looked
after by a military officer.
The placing of the Siletz Indians
under military rule undoes the great
work that has been performed dur
ing the pnst ten years.

Banks Crash.
"The crops and banks never fail
in Oregon." For years the forego
ing has been a kind of a standing
advertisement for Oregon the coun
try over. It will have "to be hauled
down now and brought home. The
last ten days in Oregon has im
paired its usefulness so much that
it will have to be laid away. Dur
ing that time no less than five banks
in the richest parts of Oregon have
closed their doors. The first to
start the crash In Oregon was Ham
ilton, Job & Co., at Corvallis. A
private banker by the name of Reed,
at Portland, closed up next. Mon
day the Linn County National.
Hank and the Bank of Oregon, at
Albany, and the bank at Lebanon
closed their doors. Of the former
there is but little doubt that the
depositors will be paid in full at an
early date. The Bank of Oregon
will pay about 35 cents on the dol
lar, and no statement is made of
the bank at Lebanon. On Tuesday
the Lane County Bank of Ilovey,
Humphrey & Co., a Eugene wetit
under. The whole financial system
of Oregon is upheaved by these
failures and the general opinion la
that the end is not yet.
