Ia last week's issue we stated that S. . W.
Striker had gone to Egypt. We did nut mean
that far away land but Egypt in Oregon.
Water Works. How much our citizens
need water for sprinkling yards and gardens.

or five years caused by aneurism, had it opcr
atcd upon some few months ago, but now it is

First Jew in America. A Jewish paper
tells us that the first Jew to come to3 America
was one of Columbus's sailors. His name
was Louis deParres and his chief qualifica
tions seems to have been that he understood
all the Semitic languages. He and Eoderigo
de Gewz ware the first men Columbus sent on
shore. ,
Four Steamers. It is understood that
four new steamers are to be soon put on the
route between Yaquina and San Francisco, ol
speed to make the trip in twenty three and a
half hours. This will insure nearly all the
travel in this valley over the Yaquina route
as the ocean ' travel is so much shorter than
the route by way of Portland. I4 is also said
that the road will be slraightened so that 35
miles an hour can be made over it right along.
Visitors. "aptains Dutton and Davis
were in RoseUirg Monday with their pack
traia mineralogizing and finding out our great
natural wonders.' ; These gentlemen are doing
good work for the government and for our

new brick is completed on the lot where Parks
& Son now keep. The work will all be com
plete by December if no bad luck gets in the
way. Until that time we are authorized to
say that Parks & son will sell nearly the entire
stock of first class goods now on hand at cost.
Call and get a bargain at once. We will speak
of the new firm in the near future and tell you
what we think.
Came Home. Congressman Hermann re
turned home jlast Tuesday evening. The
citizens of Koscburg would have been pleased
to have expressed their recognition of his ser
vices in Congress by a public reception, but
owing to the gloom cast over his family and
friends by the late death of his son, the friends
had to forego this honor for the present at
least. Wc take occasion to say however, that
Mr. Hermann's labors have not bcen'undcr
atel lry his constituency in Southern Oregon.
Pioneers Association. A number of cit
izens of Walla Walla have organized a pioneer
association, the jurisdiction of which embraces
all that portion of Oregon, Idaho and Wash
ington lying east of the Cascades. The mem
bership is composed of persons, male and fe
- male, who settled in the country included in
these boundary lines prior to January I, 1S63.
Persons who came between January I, 1863,
and January t, 1866, are eligible to honorary
membership and are accorded all the privileges
incident to such an organization, save those of
voting and serving on committees.
' Rich Placer Diggings. News comes
from Idaho Cjity that new and rich placer dig
gings have liecn discovered in Long valley.
The accounts of their richness is almost fabu
lous, and they are said to be equal to anything
ever discovered in the famous Boise basin.
As a result, a general stampede lroru the basin
is made to long valley. For years mining has
'been going on in a small way on the tributaries
. of the Payette and south fork of Salmon river,
in that vicinity, but the returns have not been
very large. The new diggings are said to be
on Spring creek, a tributary of the rayette.

Approaching events arc said to cast shadows
before, and such at least appears to be the case
with the ferthcominz visit of W. W, Cole's
New Colossal Shows, which exhibit here Sat
urday Sept. 4th. Probably the approach of
no other tented exhibition has ever attracted
such widespread interest in this vicinity as have
the announcements qf this engagement. In
short, the idea is prevalent that Manager Cole
has completely outdone all of his previous great
efforts, and some strikingly novel innovations
can be anticipated. Fully alive to the require
ments of the times, and with a determined
purpose to present attractions that have never
had a counterpart in this country, Mr.; Cole,
immediately on the close of his season last No
vember, dispatched a number of trusty agents
to Europe in quest of novelties, giving them
carte blanche to pay any price, providing the
feature possessed sufficient merit and had nev
er been seen in the United States. The re
sult has been that Manager Cole has collected
the most brilliant group of circus stars that
have ever graced the arenas of Europe! Not
only is Mri Cole's personnel of performers rich
in celebrities from the old world, but the most
daring and noted of American artists likewise
disport themselves under his imposing tents,

every performance on the enormous bippor

into requisition for the presentation of a scries

rivaled "Wild West" combination, comprising

Review: Mr. Chenowcth who was
appointed to the Postmastership of Oakland
by the present administration has thought fit
through the columns of the Republican organ
to take exception to certain remarks of your
Oakland correspondent, which appeared in
The Review of the !30th ult. Mr. C. tells
us that he holds his present position unsolicited
by himself which explanation is getting to be
rather old. Will he kindly inform his Dem
ocratic fnends how he did manatee to cet it.
If it was on account of his extreme loyalty to
to the Democratic party or was it because
there was no one else n this precinct who
was capable of personally attending to the
duties connected with the office. Mr. C. must
surely feel that he has forfeited his position,
even if he ever had any claim to it. In the
first place; he has denounced the party that
appointed him. Secondly; by appointing as
his deputy, a man whose antagonism toward
the Democratic party is not excelled by any
for partisanship. Mr. C. has openly insulted
the Democrats, and lastly; Mr. Chenowcth
has used his position for electioneering pur
poses, by publicly distributing Third party
tickets at the Post office on election day,
which is contrary to the laws and regulations
of the Post office Dept., and this alone is suffi
cient cause for his removal.

Something About Fruit. .'.'' .
Fruit trees must be properly cultivated.
Wc are assured that we have the soil nod cli
mate for almost every variety of fruit adapted
to the temperate zones. As a rule trees are
crowded too much, so much so that many or
chards are unprofitable. Some men who
have large farms crowd their trees most on
their lands but not in their pockets. Some
times when their -wives prevail upon them to
buy only one, a precious one, they plant it in
a fense corner or in the hard beaten yard and
afterwards say they were swindled. ..The
prunes from about,; 500 trees on John W.
Weaver's farm last year after being dried
brought more money than two hundred acres
in grain. Think of it, and then can you tell
me that W. C Evans swindled you! Why,
if so you would crucify'your Savior. It seems
that the highest crime a man can be guilty of
here is enterprise and progress. There are
farmers who are abject slaves to their creditors
could be out of debt now if they had planted
large prune orchards lour years ago and 'at
tended to them, their products would now be
floating upon the ocean of commerce. ; The
only earthly hope for such farmers is to make
speedy sales of land and chatties and . redeem
themselves from their intricate situation and
be content with small farms, independence,
peace, plenty and a clear conscience; but they

Pursuant to a call from Hon. Asher Marks,
chairman of committee, on building a: wagon
road fpora Roseburg across the Cascade moun
tains to Crater lake, a large number of the
progressive and intelligent men of Douglas
connti assembled at the court house last Sat
urdays lion. W. F. Owens was made chair
man of the meeting. , The design of this meet
ing ws to consider the report of the engineer
in charge of the party who surveyed 'the pro
posed route and to devise ways and means by
which' the wagon road from Roseburg to Cra
ter lake could be built as speedily as possible.
The meeting was an enthusiastic one and many
plans 'were suggested. V In was finally resol ved,
on motion of J. R, N. Bell, that a committee
of, Severn, J be appointed by the chairman, to
draw tap and at once circulate a petition to
the County Court to locate a county road as
per sUrvey of Mr. Arrington. The committee
appointed were J. R. N. Bell, C. Ball, R. B.
DixontA. Marks,' Al. Engeles, W. F. Benjamin-
and W. F. Owens. This committee
will present "their petition at an adjourned
meeting to be held in the court house next
Saturday, and steps will then be taken to cir
culate said petition and to further consider
the project. It is hoped that all who arc in
terestpd in the development of Douglas county,
the fairest spot of Oregon, will attend. Let
the energy now. lying dormant be developed.
There is sufficient latent power in Douglas
county which, permitted to show itself, would
far eclipse that of all the other counties of the
state. The new road now being projected'"
whchjcompleted will be of incalcuable value to
one and all of Douglas county. Citizens turn
out eji-masse at the meeting next Saturday.
Now is the time for action. The following
from jthe chief engineer J. M. Arrington, who
surveyed the proposed route explains itself:
"In regard to the proposed road to Crater
lake and as feasibility and cost of constructing
roads arc generally considered by comparison,
permiUne to say that on one mile of the Coos
Bay wagon road there was more down timber
than on the whole line of the proposed road to
Crater lake. : The sides of the mountains are
stcepet on the Coos Bay wagon toad by sever
al degrees, the canyons narrower requiring
deeper cutmg, thereby giving greater cause for
land slides, than on the proposed road to Cra
ter hke.' The road to Coos Bay is in a clay
bed a portion of the way, requiring planking
or cross laying of limber, which the road to
Crater lake would not. You will also find
that j in winters snow falls on the Cascades
while there are heavy, dashing rains on the
Coast range of mountains, which causes great
washouts." Paled Aug. nth, 1886.

day he Republican State Committee discussed
the question of a State Convention this year.
Theijc is fenly a judge of the Court of Appeals
to bej elected on a State ticket this fall, and it
is usual for that nomination to be mad,, nn
suchj occasions by, the State Committees, but
a convention would give the anti-saloon people
chince to have a plank according to their
doctrines put into the Republican platform,
and they tried hard to have the committee
order a convention for this purpose. General
Conway and others spoke for a convention.
a convention was defeated by a vote of 18 ty 9.

The Yankee Doodles left on Sunday morn
ing for Roseburg, taking with them the good
wishes of our people on the bay. The enter
tainment on Friday evening was thoroughly
enjoyed by a large audience. The music was
most excellent and was highly appreciated,
and the minstrel performance was in good
taste and very amusing. There was no attempt
at the absurd caricature of the negro race, so
common in minstrel shows, and the low ob
scene allusion and jokes, which are the stock
in trade of many traveling troupes, were en
tirely absent. This speaks volumes for the
boys and entitles them to the respect of all
descent people. The party on Saturday night
was well attended and was composed almost
entirely of young people, and nice young peo
ple. The hall never looked brighter than
when filled with merry dancers all in the joy ot

A Mystery.
How the human system ever recovers from
the ljad effects of the nauseous medicines often
literally poured into it for tlio suppositive
relief of dyspesia, liver complaints, constipa
tion, rheumatism and other ailments, is a
mystery. The mischief done by bad medi
cines is scarcely less than that caused by dis
ease. If they who are weak, bilious, dyspep
tic, constipated or rheumatic, would oftener
be guided by the experience of invalids who
have thoroughly tested J Inciter's Stomach
Bitters, they would in every instance obtain
the speediest aid derivable from rational
medication. This medicine is a searching and
at tha same time a- thoroughly safe remedy,
derived from vegetable sources, and possess
ing in consequence of its basis of pure spirits,
properties as a medical stimuleht not to be
found in the fiery local bitters and slimualnts
oftcn resorted to by the debilitated, dyspeptic
and languid. - . ' -
