Control of Mexican HallroiuN. Consul General A. L. M. Gotta rhalk, of Mexico City, wrltoa that the Mexican government Is now practi cally lu a position where it control thu transportation situation of the country from a political and strategic as well at economical point of view. Thu government has succeeded In merging into one corporation the M ox lam Central railway and the Na tional lines, which tmbrnot a num ber of roads, having n combined mileage of 10,000 miles. The con sul general writes: It Is contemplated to form a Mexi can cumpauy, of which tho majority of the stock will remain In tho lunula of the Mexican government. It will be controlled by a board of 21 dl reutors, which will have a gnornl board of 12 members residing in Mexico and a local board of nine members which will mako Us bond quarters In New York. It Is oxpooted that by the reduction of tho general charges and oxpensos, and tho dolus away with all harmful competition, tho new company may provide tho country with an economical schedule of freight rates. Tho company, am told, will make n limited Issue of prior lion bonds nt 4 Vd per cont ami tho general mortgage bonds of 4 par cent, tho principal nml interest of the latter being guaranteed by the Moxl Joan government.

"When my friends thought I was about to take leave of this world, on accouut of indigestion, nervousness and gonoral debility," writes A. A. Curlsholm, Treadwell, N. Y., "and when it looked as it thero was no hope loft, I was persuaded to try Electric lllttora, and I rejoice to say that thoy are curing me. I am now doing business again as ot old, and am Btlll galnlug dally." Boat tonic medlclae e carta, Garate4 r J, O. Perry, iragglat. Stc, Tho Capital Journal today sends out a largo nutnbor of aamplo copies dovotod to this campaign for good government In county and state. Snmplo copies will go to hundreds of 'tho most Intelligent nnd Influential pcoplo In the atnto, and a fow words to thorn will not bo out of place. Tho Capital Journal nlono among tho prominent stnto dallloB refused to accede to tho domands of tho ma chine that formed tho combination for big appropriations in tho last leg islature, nnd Tho Cnpltal Journal al most nlono among tho dully papers of tho state refuses to ncccdo to tholr domnnd thnt thoy bo oxompU'd from tho operation of the referen dum. Tho Cnpltal Journal sustnlns the offort or tho Stnte Orongo In Its la bors to secure tho roferondum on tho official pass bill, and tho bill appro priating $100,000 for armories. It also supports tho offort of tho Linn county Grange to Hocuro tho referen dum on tho Stnto University bill that llxos tho tax for that Institution at $ 12C, 000 por annum. Wo also advo cato tho lultlntlvo bolng taken on the stnto prrfiter to put that official on a fiat salary, and sovornl othor Impor tant Initiatives that aro lu prepara tion. As n freo and Independent nowspn por, Tho Capital Journal scorns tho Idoa that tho roferonoum nnd initia tive ore only to bo resorted to whon It suits tho pleasuro of Mr. U'Ron, or any othor Htipposod loader and mold ers of public opinion. Ily knuckling down to bosslsm of any kind tho proplo aro always oxposcd to tho danger of mlstnkos of tho Individual, aud somotlmos tho corruption of tho so-cnllod loaders of tho pooplc. We do not sny that has ovor boon the case with anything that Mr. U'Uen has boon connoctud with, but public olfieluls nnd political loadors have sold out the pooplo of Orogon so tunny t linos that It bohoovos them to get wise and trust others loss to do things for them that affect tholr own pockets. Hooted and spurred nnd ' f"Vt4ili1 it Alt lu ual f-at tliul ImauAO (Itn ' wivi-iiuiivu rj Dvii-Bijiuu wunavo) tn- people hnvo boon looted nnd spurned until patience with such leadership haa become almost a crlmo ngulnt the constitution Itself. This Is not n political fight. It Is a light to put up tho bars against ex travagance and to chock the greod of political combinations thnt go In to loot tho taxpayors. Tho odltor of The Capital Jonrn'l Is a Itepubllcnn, but not of the fro bootor vnrloty. He bolloves In froo dom of action, lustoad of slavory to machine. Tho Capital Jour.ial fought tho big combine nnd log-roll lug appropriations, nnd will continue to fight thorn us oxtrnvagant grabs. 0 Xnrth Salem Talks. Ed. Jeurnal: With tho rapid pro gross that Salem is trying to mnko, It would soom to partlos interested that our city had roachod such propor tions that the olty council should I elect a pormanont city englnoor. Nearly n month has passed slnco the citizens of tho fifth wnrd petitioned for a number of streets to bo graded an dgrnvelod, and somo pavod with crushod rock, nnd up to the prosont tlmo no grades have been estab lished, and men aro anxious to get to work, and only a lack upon the part of tho authorities to furnish grades Is holding the improvomoi.t book, and It seoms where property ownorfi aro willing to Improve they should be allowed to do so. Street commissioner and the city engineer should be combined In ono otllolul, aud all work be of a perma nent character. Wo aro paying a street commis sioner $75 a month to boas two work men and an old gray horso and cart Wo havo no fault to find with tho commissioner, but $500 addod to the salary would give us a competent en gineer, and our work upon the streets could progress In a moro sat isfactory tuannoi.
