The Oregoniau, iu an editorial yester
day, deprecates the growing sentiment
against immigration, and points out the
fact that a few years ago immigration
boards were looked upon as of public
benefit. At the s.nne time it suggests
that "the importation of 100,000 or 150,
000 Huns, Slovachs, Bohemians, Poles
and Italians annually for five years
would only make one per cent of our
population." The Oregonian is theoret
ically correct; practically wrong. It
reasons from fa!fe premises, and of
course arrives at .false conclusion?. Its
first premise is that this immigration
is composed of clashes similar to our own
population ; while the truth is that,
while of the native population one-fifth,
or perhaps one-tiiinl, ot one per cent
are criminals, oi the element spoken ot I
ten per cent are naturally criminals, '
and eighty per cent, from their ignor-j
mice, lack of understanding of uir sys
tem of government and inaoilitr to
a round turn, for it was a piece of busi
ntss not compatible with Bellinger's
position on attempt to influence tho
court by flourishing the name of the
president. He said: "Behind mo ia
sitting one nearer and closer to the
president of the United State, than all
others. He is a man who has had good
opportunities to judge of Mr. Mulkey's
standing in the community in which he
lives, and who seeks to have a further
continuance grauted." Tho manMr.
Thayer alluded to was Dr. Pean liich
Thayer says, in effect, that because a
friend of the president wanted to see a
favor extended by a V. S. judge, who
had been appointed bv that president,
that it was tho duty of that judgo to ac
commodate that friend. If the time
lias come when Mr. Cleveland's friends
are to interfere iu the administration of
justice, we would suggest that they re-
mnst meet thi competition it it de
sires to keep up with the procession.
The great factor in a rlty's prosperity,

puts life in it, is the monthly pay rolls.

The following is given to the Salem
Statesman, no doubt from official
At its 1891 session the Oregon legisla
ture passed an act authorizing and em
powering the governor, secretary of state
Portland to do all the work requirt-d,
and warned the working men of San
Francisco not to come, because the work
would not be forthcoming. Exactly the
-suttie condition exists between this
oooetry and Kurope. We have all the
men the industries of the country will
support. Those who come will either
find bo work, or take the job needed by
our own people.
Until the foreign laborer is needed he
should be kept out. The big mining
corporations flooded the country with
t. undesirable laborers. The perpetual
. armoil and crime pervading the min
ing regions are the unanswerable argu
ments against further continuing the
practice of encouraging, or ever, per--oiitting
that class of immigration.

This is certainly an otf-year for the
United States. Between a rump con
gress and Debs, unprecedented floods,
budding anarchy and strikes, the coun
try has gone from bad to worse. To
crown it all, our champion yacht, the
Vigilant, has gone over into British

of a very successful but short line of
rail in Oregon. The act carried an ap
propriation of IW.OOO, and the line was
built and ready for business in Octolier
of the same year and has been in opera
tion ever since, with slight interruptions
by reason of high water. The line was
built within the appropriation and has
made money. The late floods damaged
it to the extent of probably $7"0, but as
the earnings on hand amount to prob
ably $1,000 the repairs will be made
without delay. The cfTectof the building
