The Advancement and Development of the Beautiful City of Oregon The Seat of Government of Holt County. No town in our great state has a moie intelligent class of citizens; more refined and cultured society the term is used in its broadest sense. It was founded by an intelligent class of people, and during the whole period of its history it has con tinued to draw unto itself, under thelaw of affinity, as it were, residents of a like character, until now it is pre-eminently disttnguised as a city wherein the stand ard of intellectuality, refinement, moral ity and similar qualities is exceptionally high. The evidence of the traits is tobe seen in many ways in our city in the number of her churches and the mem bership of their congregations; in the costliness of her school building and the record of educational attainments; in the meager reports of her police courts; in the absence of brcthels and dens of vice; in the cleanliness of streets, yards and borne surroundings; in the universal cultivation of flowers and fruits about the homes of her people; in the flourish ing condition of the societies and organ i tions for amelcoratiug suffering, reliev ing distress, promoting sociability and paternal fellowship, and stimulating in tellectual activity in short, in the whole tenor and tone of public and private life in the community.

The country has been too busy to talk poli tics and will be for some time to come, no matter what the politicians or the candidates may do in their efforts to in terest them. Under favorable condiditions business means mooey in. On the other hand, politics, under any conditions, means money out. People understand this, and they need money more than they need anything else just now. That is why they are talking jobs rather than poli tic?, and doing business rather than elec tioneering. The campaign is progress ing as well as can be expected under these circumstances. In and Around New Point. Taxes Tuition.. Total.. Teachers .

Expectation that the presidential campaign would open in interest im mediately following Mr. Bryan's speech of acceptance, has not yet been realized. Indeed, there is so little interest in poli tics in many sections of tho country, that politicians are solicitous regarding what they are pleased to term tho apathy of the people." Mr. Bryan himself has become anxious to 3uch an extent that ho has made a two weeks tour; and Mr. Taft now announces that he will make several speeches in the im mediate future. Anxiety of the poli ticians and the candidates, is, however, a little premature when commercial, in dustrial and business conditions are taken into consideration.
