The eastern Oregon dweller, says
the "Wasco Sun, can dig and plow
and harvest, but when he comes to
dispose o his harvest, he is snubbed
by a power which declares, ?'we own
the only way to market The passes
on each side of the Cascades we own.
"We will not allow a boat on the
river to carry passengers or freight

ours; we have by the power of our
capital by carrying passengers at 25
cents each driven off the people's
line which carried them for $2.50
and we now rejoice in charging &LS0.
"We have control of everything con
nected with the marketing of the
products of labor transportation,
telegraphing, expressing; we virtu
ally fix the price of wheat and all
products, for are not the Improve
ment companies and the Transpor
tation companies ours? Coal and
wood are ours; and no man can
operate in lumber unless he bows to
our charge. The public need not
think they nre a power. Can't we
forco them to go to Portland, 25
miles out of their way, and pay for
handling all their products there?
For we are prepared to do it; we get
the profit "Won't we charge what
we please, for no competition can ap
proach us? "Wo need not build the
road from Portland to Astoria or any
lino under our legitimate charter,
yet hold an empire of land in Oregon."
Hon. Cassius M. Clay has written
a letter in which ho says: "Ex-President
Samuel J. Tilden having de
clined the nomination for the nresi-
dency in 18S1, Governor-elect Hoadley
of Ohio, is the man. With genius,
common sense, and great experience
iu affairs, bold, individual, and mag
netic, altogether of such stuff as
heroes are made of, let Hoadley be
our nominee for president in 1881,
and the Republicans will go."
Fouit years ago the question that
agitated the minds of western "Wash
ingtonians was "who is Hall?" Hall
was ostensibly a land agent at Olym
pia, but a mjstery to everyone. He
finally disappeared. It now trans
pires that his name was T. C. Calvert,
of Bowling Green, Ivy., whose ideas
on the acquisition of property were
so indistinct as to occasion his hur
ried departure from the blue grass
The Prince of "Wales, in closinc the
International Fisheries Exhibition at
London, announced that the substan

proving the condition of the fisher
men. Ho expressed the hope that
hygienic and inventors' expositions
would be held soon, and said he pro
posed to have a colonial exhibition

President. Arthur is scrupulously
careful concerning the letting out of
a single word of his annual message
until congress lias first read it He
will probably write his message, as he
did last year, at high pressure. The
sheets will bo written in the presi
dent's little private room, and the first
light of dawn will tinge some of them,
for the president thinks he does his
best work after midnight The chief
magistrate, as he writes his message,
has no companions but some choico
cigars, and his desk is heaped with
reports, documents and .manuscript
Last year President Arthur was very
nervous lest his message Bhould get
to the press before it reached con
gress. Ho sent for the public printer
and said: "Mr. Bounds, can I depend
upon you to put my message into
type and keep it away from the news
"You can, sir," said Bounds.
"Very well; Pll try you, and shall
hold you personally responsible for
The public printer took tho manu
script, rushed back to tho govern
ment's great workshop, cut the man
uscript into very small takes, took off
his coat, put on his apron, and with
his chief clerk, set the typo for the
most important parts. The presi
dent sat up all night reading the
proofs as they were sent up, galley
by galley, from the printing office.
The public printer watched eaoh
proof as closely as though it had
been a government bond. At six
o'clock the message was in type, re
vised, and the president went to bed.
At noon it went to congress. From
beginning to end it will be seen that
it is no child's play to write and send
to congress a message of this sort.
