Our Boom Coming and Don't You Never Forget It. It is (to general remark that while towns he'c an there ii'o booming and prospering lightalong, Oregon is doing almoit nothing hi tlio way ot impiovlng. Liku people, towns must tako their turn, then wait till their tutu comes around again. Oregon iiail a boom a few years ngo, slncothcn her growth has been littlo, year by year, with scarcely a peicoptlb.'o forward move ment But, reactions follow booms. By and by, towns that n'o now rushing abend will slop to rccupuruto, and Ore gon will Mart aalti. This has been the experience of towns all over tho country. But Oregon will not have u boom until her own people pluck tip a little spirit, and display njiiio energy. We liu within too iay a distanco of St. Joseph. As longasour peoplugo away from homo to transact their business there will bo no inducement for Oregon (o grow. Tlio bulk of dry goods and groceries used In Oregon aro Ixiught In St. Joo. Mou who make every dollar they got in Oregon and vicinity do not buy a dollars worth of good here if they can help it. They tako it to St. Joo aud purchase where they claim thoy can buy cheaper. No town cau boom under f,uch circumstances. It is simi lar to the landlordism that has impov erished Ireland, by squeezing every dollar possible out of tho people for rents, and taking tho monoy to Kng laud nnd tho Continent to Fpend it. Holt county, too, has been barely holding her own, while other counties iu our sister Statu just west of us have been filling up and running ahead oi lioriu population. But other causes have led to this; and other causes, wo imagine liavo about run their eoursu. A few years ago people rushed West be causo then there wero homestead lands to be had there, and a man who was able to own but a fow acres heie, could acqulio a largo tract there. They have gone there and have had their crops burned up with ('ninth yuar after year, until they aro neither able to stay thcro or como away. That rush Is now checked if not turned on the back track. Holt county has not .suffered in reputa tion Iu these into years. While tlio counties west and south of us have been burned up sho has raised good crops. Tliis summer, while tho drouth was almost universal, Holt .county raised considerably inoro than enough to carry her through, while there is n largo surplus of former crops yet on hand. Wo can find no fault with Holt coun ty; it will compare favorably with any county in State. All of her farmers uru supp'ied witit a bountiful blessing of this world's goods, and ti great many of them are indeiicndeut and wealthy. But why don't they spend their money at homu? Why do they cany their money and produce tight through Ore gon and t au-act their business In other places? If you should nsk the farmer ho won d scon answer tho question. There is no market hero for country produce, only for homo consumption; no competition, except a few general stores. Why is tills thusly? Dues not tno who e secret lie in tho tact tbat Or egon is lanipntablv Iu need of a rail road. Glvo Oregon a railroad and she would soon enjoy a boom that no other town hasyut experienced Iu tho North west. Merohauts could then offer in ducements for farmers to trade at home, and farmers, as well as othors eould not allurd to go away. Give Or egon a railroad and property would en hance iu vnluu SO pdr cent. She would soon have grain buyers, elevators, an other mill, another lumberyard, a hard ware store aud many other enterprises which wo aro disastrously In need of at the present time, Ono enterprises always encourages another and compe tlon will always draw trade. Oregon has the wealth, location and somu very enterprising business men and when ever thoy umloi tako anything thoy gen erally accomplish It. Wo have no doubt in tho world that if every busi ness nun would put his shoulder to the wheel, and pull together in tho right direction, the Iron horse would bo bteamlng IntoOrogon beforo tho "bloom again Is uu tho ryo." "God holps those that help thomselvos," no victory was cvory wou without an organized effort, A prominent writer onoo said "mon who aro not organized must be classed as a mob." We uro doubly certain if a little feeling was ruanlfesteu, and a lit. tie energy displayed, the Kansas City, St. Joseoh & Council Bluffs Railroad Comi uUl do tho fair thing. They i - to do it once, and we un- I NUMBER 22. j dcrstnnd thoy atand just now whoro they nlway stood. Thoy aro willing to move if our citizens will tako -the lead. If Oregon would have had a railroad ton years ago, sho would to-day stand without a rival in Holt county. Sho would be to Holt county what Mary villo Is to Nodaway county. But if sho lies asloop much longer, the towns that aro blossed with this carrying facility, will rush ahead of her, until she will bo forced to acknowledged that she Is outrivaled In everything except stu pidity nnd dullness. Thu Capitol of Holt would vlnk into obscurity tho samu as the Capitol of our beautiful Statu has doiu:, and it is only a matter of timo when the Stnto Capitol will bo removed. If New Point should perchance get a railroad to-morrow, Oregon would be compelled to recognize In her a formid able rival. Two yoars ago Oregon was tho first town in tho county, but since tlicn Mound City. Maltland, (which was only a corn-field two yoars ngo) and other towns who aro blessed with rail road facilities, aro fast rushing ahead of her, while Oregon ha,s beon barely holding her own. If this continues tor the next two years as It has done In t' t past she will bd compelled to tako a back seat. Naturo has dono her share towards giving us a beautitul location, a healthy climate end has blessed us with ail that wo can ask. Tho citizens of Holt county have dono their part by giving us tho county scat a-id placing right In the heart of town one of tho finest Court House buildings in tlio State.And now, business men of Oregon, do your part and glvo tho town a metropolitan appearance by encouraging a railroad It is for you to say whether wo aro to booui or sink into oblivion.
