The season for tires is fast approach ing. Confined within proper bounds fire is a source ot much comfort and al to very useful, but carelessness in the starting up ot furnaces and stoves for winter use annually leads to the des tructioa ot much property and era.it hardship the failure to provide ninple means for tbe protier protection from the ravages ot tire, will 6ooner or later prove disastrous to our city and ruinous to our people. It-is safe to nay that nine-tenths of the tire alarm in the fall and winter months ara the enult of inexcusable carelessnessThe coal oil c:m plays its part, but defective Hues and ash barrels furnish the greater number of disasters, while the little bunch of excelsior carelessly thrown to the rear of a store building, which is iguite-I by some one carelers'y drjping the lighted stump of a cigar, causes the reckless or careless merchant to wonder "what did :t." and worse than all the destruction i generally complete, because nuch binge moil always occur at night, and generally coma to ju-t such citie- Oregon, because or the city having no protection whatever. This is a matter in which everybody ii interested. The householderrmerchant who is the most careful is taxed in his insurance for the carelessness of his neighbor or brother merchant. If it were nut for Ilia Hies, which could be prevented by., tie ex ercise ot ordinary care and good water service, insurance rates would soon de cream materially. Every flue and pipe connection should be carefully examin ed. Eyery man who is interested in the future of Oregon should insist on au adeouale water supply be seured for ourDeonle. The long continuous dry season is sure to make crevices asd ex poas inflammable woodwork where it has heretofore oeen wen proiecteu. uur board ot aldermen should see that some one is authorized and instructed to make a most thorough examination, and defectiv e flues, and intlammnble stuff thrown carelessly around should be reDorted and failure to correct, should be punishable by tine, and a heavy one at that. Our city on Friday last was visited by Mr. W. Kieruted, a civil and hydraulic engineer ot large practical experience. He came for the purpose of looking over the Gold and inquiring into the feasi bility as well as practicability of our city putting in a water system of som kind. He expressed himself as sur prised that Oregon, being not only an old town, but one of the wealthiest per capita in our state, should permit our selves to be so at the mercy of fire The whole expense could be paid for on a I levy of one-bait or one per cent and in this way not oe teit uy a single tax payer, oo jar as me legal ngni 10 "'" duiiicuio nn nas recently neia mat cities or ine lourin class nave a constitutional ngbt to become indebted lor such lm provements to an amount equal to five nor cent of its assessed valuation. Mr. Kiersted thought that it might be possible for both cities Oregon and Forest, to unite in putting in a water system that would prove every way satisfactory to tbe people of both, as tbe same power could be used in supplying the water, and be tbe means ot saving either one on the other a handsome urn, should they be compelled to make this improvement alone. As to bow this improvement should be made whether by an oughtrigbt bonus to some responsible company, or by bond ing the city, we are not prepared to say, but that something mu6t be done by our peeple in tbe near future, goes without saying; unless it is done con fidence in our city's future will be gone, and we can only sit down and await the inevitable. Our city is just now in such a shape that it becomes every citizen to ask himself "what shall I do to save my home?" Our people must act in this matter if they would save their prop erty. Ibe time is now at hand. What are you doing in this matter? Vou must get in line either (or Uregon or against it. Oregon must do something and. do that something quick. We are confronted with a problem that must be dealt with in the very near future, It alii for heroic treatment part or tbe local authorities, half-way measures will suffice. on tne and no Our Manufactures. Our state labor commissioner merri weather has just issued a resume of Missouri manufactures, showing the industrial progress that has been made in this line in our slate during the year ending June 30, 1895. His statistics are taken from 864 of the principal estab lishments, who have an invested capital ot 75,617,476, who in addition have $1G, 62196 invested in buildings, grounds and machinery. Tbe value of the goods manufactured was $113,349,003, which required 4,23(5 clerks and 43,006 wage-earners to pro duce tbe goods, eoyi.yol were paid to the clerks and 317,851,023 were paid out in wages, or an averge of 3415 to each workman. The selling value of the goods produced by each workman was 32,647. The highest average paid to workmen were those engaged in tbe dis tillery business, 3700; while the lowest average 3214, was paid to those engaged in manufacturing conins. More tobacco goods were manufac tared tbaa in tny other one industry, the selling value being $14,474,933 not including 31.183,200 worth of cigars The next largest was pork aud beef, 312, 463,135. Brewers came third, 32,133,713 barrels ot beer valued at 311,003,452, which took 32,0jj,7i to buy tbe ne cessary stamps from the United States government to pay tbe revenue tax on those barrels of beer. It took $3,338,91 4 to pay the necessary government tax on the 57,075,701 pounds ot manufactured tobacco. St. Ijouis has more capital invested in breweries than in any other industry. Kansas City manufactured 160,000 tons of ice, valued at 3j9,440. After the Cigarette. It is rumored that a war upon tho sale to minors of cigarettes and cigar ette wrappers is to be soon waged in this city, and it is possible that before the robbinscomo again it will be an im possibility for tbe sallow-faced youth of our town woo are addicted to tbe cigar ette habit to prosure tho tempting little buck for love or money. 11 is said that tbe dealers who deal in cigarettes are as much in favor of the prohibitory ordinance ns any other class in fact, they regard them as a great nuisance, as the profit is so small that it hardly pays to handle them. Tbe legislature at the last session passed an act granting all cities the right to prohibit tbe sale and use of the sigarette within its corporate limits We notice a number ot our exchanges are bpeaking kindly of Representative (Jruelich, of Cooper county, as a suit able nominee for ntate treasurer on the Republican ticket. Cooper county had one ot the ablest representatives in tho lower house of our last legislature. He was clean and conscientious in his every act and vote and labored unceasing- ly in the interest ot the people of Cooper county and the state at large. Our party may rake the state over with a fine tooth comb, and they will not find a more suitable and available man for this position. The will of Samuel Glick, who died last week, was filed for probate on Tues day last, by H. K. S. Robinson, who is made executor. Mr. Glick owned eome five hundred acres ot land, but prior to the will had disposed ot it to his chil dren, excepting 140 acres, which he owned at the time ot his death. This he gives to his wife during her lifetime.and at her death to be divided between his surviving children in equal parts. All tbe personal property is also given to bis wife. The will was executed on November 26th. 1895, and is witnessed by H. K. S. Robinson, who wrote tbe will, and Jno. H. Miller. Congress.

On the organization of the house be ing co.iHncleu, tne iirei-ident e message was r ubniilled and rend. It is no manifestation of a want ot re t-pect for the great ollice of president of the United Slates to t-uy that this an nual uieKi-age is an exceedingly color les ilouuinetit, aud that it coues lit lie thai is new, aud has nut heretofore been known to the public aud to the members (,f both liuus-eu of congre Lieuifcelve..

He siTem no new considera. tious iu support of what is practically free trade reasoning. When touching upon the currency question, he certainly kicks over what was left of the Democratic platform or 18'Ji. In brie', he urges the retirement of the greenbuck and the silver certi ticate currency by funding them into low iotereset bearing bonds that may be used in increasing the national bank circulation, as a substitute for the re tired greenbacks and the silver certi ficates. The Democratic national con vention of 1802 indorsee the policy of a state bank circulation by advocating the repeal ot the federal tax ot ten per cent. upon stale banK notes.. ine presiaeni advocates the retention of the federal tax. though at a reduced rate, and the extension of national bank circulation and tho national banks, so as to supply the necessary amount of currency is case of the retirement of the greenbacks by their funding. Taken as a whole, or in part, tne mes sage is but a sore disappointment to any true American.

The stock in trade of the candidates for the house offices is cigars. Nothing more persuasive goes at tbe various headquarters, but Ben Russell, the Mis souri candidate for sergeant al arms introduced a novelty. A barrel' was de livered nt the hotel. It bore Mr. Rus sel's address, and the freight marks showed that it had come all of the way from Sleelville, in Crawford county, Mo. Mr. Kussell had the barrel taken up to his parlor. He knocked out the head, and exposed to a circle of con gressmen the prettiest sight they hud seen in many a day an expanse of big red apples. The arcma which arose and pervadded the headquarters discounted the cigars of tbe other candidates. It was not ten minutes until every man within smelling distance of that barrel had discarded the weed and was munch ing an apple, while Mr. Russell told something about the orchards ot tbe Ozark country. The W. C. T. U. held a most inter esting meeting last week. Many sugges tions and plans were given on depart ment work. Tbe next meeting will be held at tbe home of Mrs. M. B.

Mo., in 1844. This was n noted crossing for years, aud was the onlv tine on the Missouri above Kobi don L-aiiiliML' (nw St. Joseph). Banks lost most all lie luid liy tils mercantile venture, ami this ferry cave him his sec .mil start, which heonernted unto some time in 13.. Most nil. if nut quite all, of the onuinal land at the ferry landing hits long since been swallowed up by the rivflr. In 1839 a floating bridge, made of logs attached to each other and se-j cured by fastening on either bnnk, was buill ac"ros the Little Tarkio on the southwest corner of 15, 59,38, and was a crossing of tho road between the Thorpe settlement in the weatern part of the township and Uetnck's Landing on the Missouri river, which was in 20, 59, 38, and has long since disappeared m the ver. The Little Tnrk in those ilnys as uuite a stream and at this crossing is said to have been not less than 60 feet ide and Borne 6 feet deep, but several eors before tbe war the Missouri ri-er ut through into Tarkio where I' orest City is now thus dividing the stream in two parte, the lower tne oeins Known as lwer Mara " and suppuou uy tfiure- head branche, Oregon branche nd Mill creek. Wm. Hetrick for whom the landing wan named had a trading point here his, stock con sisting principally of whisky. On. of the most remarkable features of Lewis township was an extensive erove of the aspen treet.said to have been at the time tbo only eigm ot toe kind in the state, or, indeed west of the MissiEMippi river. The grove was about mile and a halt south or uregon, anu was on 2. 59. 38. near the waters of Mill creek. M. I). Walker now owns the erealer nortion of this land, and Johnathan Culp has a portion ot it land. Thiscrove originated after the earliest settlement ot the county, but no one knows exactly when. Some ot our naturalists have made the assertion mat the Aspen did not grow so far nortn Prof. G. C. Bradhead was surprised to learu from Wm. Kaucher, of this city. that such a erove existed in Holt coun tv. It is now almost extinct, having been cut away in clearing the land it occupied for more profitable useB. The present road between uregon anu Forest City, which is the most ex tensively traveled country road in the countv. was built in 18i4. at a cost or 25.000. Its Oregon terminus is 235 feet higher than llie site or t lie forest City depot. Major G. W. Kelley was the contractor for the building of this road When last heard from he was residing in Kansas City. Thorpe's mill, was the iirsi ouut the tuwnshin. as well as the county.

Uollins and then to a Mr. ran ridge after whose death it was aban doned. Sam'l Watson built a carding mill on Mill creek in 1846 on the southwest quarter 36, CO, 38. He added fulling, soinnim; and weaving machinery in ioo-j, and during the war moved to Oregon where the business was continued for several years when it was sold to Daniel Kunuei. sr.. wnu removed it iu ma mm . . . , . , ... . i - -it east of town. Daniel Kuukel, Sr., established the present "KunKels Mills" in l4u on what is known as tbe Kunkel's fork ot Mill creek. At first he had only one pair of mill stones for wheat, corn aud all other kinds of grain, but he did vast amount of work. He bad an over shot wheel, and had it so enclosed that he could heat it by meats of a stov dunnz cold weather, thus preventing the formation ot ice to interfere with his work. Mr. Kunkel also had a saw mi on one of the branches of Kimsey creek, which also was known as Kunkel branch. The Kunkel Manufacturing Co. is now owned by Gideon Kunkel, thoeldest son of Daniel Kunkel. Sr. Tbe machiney has been remodeled four or five times to keep puce with the times, and is now complete roller mill and turns out not less than ten times as much slutT as tbe old mill. The mill is now propelled by- steam. A saw mill was built some where the '40's by the late Martin T. Lewis on the place now owned by Amos Weis on Mill creek. It was abandoned before the war. Dauiel Hahn, Sr., built a saw mill in 1846 where Mill creek and the county road from Oregon come together. was abandoned in 1861 and the building is now used as a barn. Geon-e J. Scott built a saw mill Mill creek near the railroad bridge about 1850. The legislature authorized hi to build a dam 10 feet high in January 1857. This we suppose was necessary as it caused the low lands to overflow, Robert Howell established a steam feed mill at his black umith shop some years ago and still keeps it running, One ot the oldest mills in the county wftB the Turney mill, built by Old Ma Turnev on the Luckhardt branch on C. Dungnn's place, just west of Oiegun They used what was ciihed "nigge head" stoues for grinding. The branch afforded more water than it does now as did Mill creek and all the other streams of tho county. The Turney mill failed for wnnt of water in a few years. Finley, now Oregon, our county soat, was laid out on June 21, 1841, by Jno. . V ilhams,elward smith aud Travis t in ley. who were appointed comraissionres by tbe legislature. They reported to the county court that they had selected the east half ot the 6e. nr. of section 27. and the west half of the sw. qr. of section 20, in township 60, range 33, containing lOJ acres, as the seat of justice of Holt county, which was to be known as "Inn ley." On October 21, 1841,this name was changed to Uregou by the county court The eastern half of the town was located on the claim of Roland Burnett, and the westera half on the claim of Larkin Pnckwood, and caused some litigation which was finally adjusted by an act of Cougresa, when Burnett and Packwood located on other lands near by. The town plat ot Oregon was filed with the county court on October 21,1341. by John Thorpe, which wns ordered certified to the recorder, and contained 17 blocks with 8 lots to each block and surrounded the court house square 8 north 6 south, 2 west and H east. The plat was officially signed by David Tern pleton then county surveyor. An addi tional plat covering the entire 160 acres was filed May 24, 1841. S. C. Collins as county surveyor filed a revised plat in July 1844, which showed 62 blocks. The western addition to Oregon was laid off by Benjamin B. Frazer.Levi Zook and Dr. Jabez Robinson, and was sur veyed by S. C. Collins. It contained about 40 acres. Pinkston's addition was laid off and plat was tiled August 9, 1869. The first sale ot town lots occurred on October 21-22, 1841. and the second sale occurred on May 16, 1842. At these sales the following parties became purchas ers: James Landiogham, of lot 4, block 15, at 362.00; this lot is now owned by Miss Daisy King and is now valued at 3300. The value of all lots below mentioned are based on the assessment of 1894. liot l.bleck 14, was purchased by Wes ley Plumer for 4:1,00; it is now owned by V. II.
