'Contrary to expectation in business
circles, thers were orer three thousand
milts of rail -oa.l built last year in tho
United 1st ales.

Rerenue Cutter, Oliver Wolcott, ar
rivcdiere to day, with a ton and half
of opium which bad been confiscated
at Alaska. It is valued at $44,000,
and is the largest seizure eer made by
Customs authorities on this coast.
During theyear 1885 the Linkville
postoffice issued 15G1 money orders
and 911 postal notes, amounting in all
to4G,lG1.29. For the same period it
paid orders and notes to the amount of
$14,388 88, ana registered 952 letters
and parcels. 471 registered letters
and packages were received.
Hermann, of Oregon will introduce a
resolution of inquiry into the House
at the first opportunity, asking the
Postmaster-General to inform Con
gress what alterations be had made in
the mail service in the West and his
reasons therefor. It is said that the
extent of these reductions will be a
great surprise to Congress. ;'
The man who can movo away from '
a newspaper account is a fool, says an
exchange. The postmaster, on re
porting that rhe paper is rot called for,
gives the new address of the dalin
qnent, and one of tho first things he
sees in bis new home is the newspaper
bill in the hands of a lawyer. This
isn't calculated to give a good send off
in a new community.
A mreting was arranged for Thurs
day between Second Assistant Post
master General Knott and Senators
Stanford, of California, and Mitchell
of Oregon, and Representatives Wood
burn, of Nevada, Healy, of Idaho, and
Henley, of California, for the latter to
protest against the recent curtailment
of the star service on mail routes in
northern California, Oregon and Idaho.
The mail service has been largely re
duced, to the great detriment of the
interests of people living in tboe sec
tions. Tho vicissitudes of ttock speculation
are shown by the confession of Jim
Keene that he had no property of his
own and no income. And yet these
wrecks of Wall street manage to eat a
good dinner every day, washed down
--'rhinrpw'noSeTped to ruin so many
confiding people and who was said to
be stripped of everything, lives like a
millionaire, Tho broken (.peculator,
like the fugitive bank defaulter, has n
snug reserve fund, which generally
keeps him in all creature comforts.
Though Hermann, of Oregon, lo-t
his gallant fight for a place on the mer
and harbors committee, ho lias been
placed on two committees territories
and expenditures in the postnffice di
-partment. The vicious policy of the
postmaster general in curtailing the
mail service in the west, and et-ppoiullv
in northern California, Oregon and
Washington territory, givei Hermann's
place on tho committee on expenditure
of the postoffice department Kptt-iul
value. Heimann says ha will have
mail routes on tho frontier restored or
he will oppose in erery w ay appropria
tions for the department.
Congressman Hermann is actively
engaged in ruRhiug the claims of Oie
gon'B bays and water ways for appropri
ations for improvements. Ho has al
ready introduced the following bill?,
and will appear in a fsw days befoie
the committee on harbors to urge ap
propriations: For canal and locks at
the Cascade, $750,000; jettv work nt
tue mouth of the Columbia,$l,330,000
Yaquina bay, UG0.000; Coquille river,
$75,000; .Qoos bay, $1GC000; harbor
of refuge, Port Orford, in addition to
the former appropriation, $2,000,000;
Willamette and Columbia rivers, below
Portland and Eugene, and Yamhill
-rivers, $47,000; Upper Columbia and
Snake rivers SSG.OOO.

States of the South, that it has been
the subject of special investigation by

Crater Lake Tarlc-
The Crater Lake National Park
scheme is now fai-ly before Congress
and the country, bills having been in
troduced setting apart a reservation
for thi purpose. The park, in many
respects, is one of the most attractive
spots in the world for tourists and
lovers of the wild and unique ia nature
"The News" has repeatedly directed
attention to thn many objects of inter
rst to be found within its limits, and
I Congress will do a most creditable
jiict of legislation if it passes the bill ic
troduced setting opart the reservation
for the purpose E( reified.
It will also be a most desirable
thing for Oregon to have so attrartive
an object within its limits. Eastern
tourist? will, through its agency, in
connection with Yellow S'ooe Part,
siake Pacific Coast excursion on a
large ccale. A more entertaining tour
(ban that via the Northern Pacific, in
cluding Yellow Stone Park to Port
land, thence down the Oregon & Call
fornia Road, including Crater Like
Park, and the sul lime scenery in than
Siskyou Mountains, which Senator
Skermon pronounced the grandest in
the world, to San Frantisco, and thence
by the Southern Pacific back East,
could not possibly be decided. Euro
pean tours have become tame and
monotonous to most travellers. This
tour would afford them uew and noval
experiences. That such excursions are
destined to become the most popular
with travellers who admire nature in
its freshness and wildnesx, there is lit
tle doubt, and ''The News" is glad to
know that steps have been taken to
make a national park in Oregon rival
that m Wjpming. "NewB."
There are three educational institu
tions in Oregon supported by the
State or under its patronage, where
any peison residing in this country
can receive an excellent education
free of charge Thee are tho State
University at Eugene, the Agricultural
Col ege at Corv altis, and Xhe State
Normal School at Monmouth. There
is also another Normal School at Ash

WasniicCToy, January 1(3 In the
prodigal days when the public domain
was voted away to promote all sorts of
enterprises and devious schemes," Con
gress donated to the state of Oregon
large tracts of valuable lands to be
used in aid of the construction of wag
on roads in that state. These lands
were transferred by the State to a num
ber of corporations organized to build
roads, or, as it has since transpired,
mainly to obtain possession, or it built,
the vork was not done in accordance
with the terms of the law, or in keep
ing with the contract with the state-
This condition of affairs has been the
subject of unfavorable comment, both
in Oregon and Washington, and at
the last meeting of the Oregon Legis
lature a memciial was adopted asking
Congress to declare the forfeiture of
several of these grants. In further
ance of this desire the people of Ore
con, as represented by their Legisla
ture, Senator Do!ph to-day introduced
a resolution calling for all the papers,
map's report and documents on file in
the Interior Department having refer
ence to these Oregon wagon roads, and
aUo for such information as may show
the fuilure on the part of either the
Sta or private corporations to comply
with the terms upon which the grants
were made. Dolph was determined,
sofarasbe is concerned, to go to thebot
torn of this matter, and he is indefatig
able in all his undertakings. The su
called wagon-road corporations that
have been gobbling up the public lands
without giving any adequate return
therefor can expect a full investigation
of the matter.
