However, the Hood will not prove a

has proven that millsTind factories can
be built near tho (alls which will resist
the forceful fury of a irreiit flood. Tho
mechanic-ill pulp mill, which stands on
the very edeof the falls and was us fully
exposed na nnv bnildinir, resumed Brim
inic on Snturdiiy, about -IS hour after
the water was at its liMiest stage. The
flood also proved thnt it is wasteful
economy to build, for factory purposes,
unsubstantial structures. Tho excelsior
mill, which stood loosoly on the bank
above the foot of the canal, Neptune cur

that formed the basin. Tliolr dxinorall

as they should be will require a pile of
money and it is to be hoped that Mr.

TIM CHISKSK WOUHY,
It I probable that the president, Iniv
ing been made ncniniiiited with the
course and conduct of Mr. Myron as an
instigator of lawless and violent pro
ceedings against the Chinese in Oregon,
came to the conclusion that ho wasnhml
citizen and ouvht not to hold public
ofllce, and on this uroninl lias removed
him. The removal ought, in- fact, to
have been among this first act of the
administration. Omjnniitn, Febru

cause he was "an Instigator of lawless
and violent proceeding against the Chi
nese in Oregon.'' the senator is a hypo
crite, as heretofore he has made us' be
lieve that he was nnti CMiichu lo the
core. The "while Clilncu" of Oreirnn

It is on account of inter dellance of law
by the Chinese mid their flllhiness mid

man would have more exulieitlv ex

remorm. i ho articlo i.s as follows :
"After all the talk about free trade
and protection, tho fact remains a i
parent that this country can make more
money hy selling inanufactured pro
ducts abroud than sidling farm products,
the country thut buys manufactured
products unU sells agricultural products
must remain poor, tins itict la so patent
as to oo almost regarded as tin axiom
the great wealth of Knglaiut has been
accumulated at the expenso of the na
tions with which he trades. And it is
only a question of tune when Fiigland
will impoverish every na'inn with
winch she trailed mniiulucturea for raw
muterialH and hrcmUtull's. England
holds fast to the idea that, because she
cannot compete with other countries in
the production of raw materials of iiinii
ufacture, meats nnd brcadstuffs, she
ought to have all the manufacturing site
wains to no ami retain the lead in com
merce. Wot long ago her grealpst states
man expressed tho opinion that America
should produce "more cotton and
cercnia.ai io prices," instead of "more
cloth nnrl iron at high prices." Hie
statesmanship is patriotic. His eve. is
single to the cnminurcial greatness of hi

that the cotton mills of Georgia are too

fciuee the building of n permanent
breakwater at the falls is a matter of
great iinporliniee lo the whole of Oregon
City, ami tho necessity for building it is
as much a public necessity to us as
building a ciiiiiiI or boat railway around
the Cascades of the Columbia 'is to the
people of l-.iwlern Oregon, it seems that,
if congress, as it luis repeatedly done,
appropriates money for toe work at the
Cascades, it sli.iuld ul-ui build a break

Thure was a loud crash of dishes in the

another was knocked senseless, a third
nearly slipped nverUiend forward, ami u
fourth hud his fingers cut oil' by the vio

and Social Status.

Truly the glowing sentiment ex
presnud in the llowing sentence of II.
W. Giady's lust speech, are likeapplei
of gold in pictures of silver. Tlu-y will
surely make nil impression nu nil who
are not an blinded by partisanship and
misrepresentation of rancorous leader
as to lie linahlu to appreciate ferveul
patriotism and trueslalesiiiaiisliip, Thai
speech, from lis intrinsic incuts, nnd be
ing his lust public ulteruuce, H.-eui al
most to coiiiu from one already freed
from the grosser desire of earthly life,
and who could with clearer vision mid
purer sympathy, discourse, on the prob
lem that vexes his beloved Southland?
Alas, how iiiuny theie are that hug to
themselves the delusion that the l.'ilh
amendment forever sullied the dusliiiv
of the black man, an I but for the vin-
dictiveness of his former masters, would
have at once lifted him from the depths
of bondage and despair to tho serene
heights of intelligent a, id responsible
liy such it is considered thoir duly to
say and write on every occasion, in their
speeches, papers, books, and even er
inons, ami to have it taught in the pub
lic schools, that the condition of Iho
slaves was little better than that of It
man gladiators, and their masters all
cruel, avaricious ShyluekH, "pitiless u

fought for the solo purpose ol pcrpetu
ating their servilu condition. Thev lullt
loudly of shot guns and the solid South
and ninny would be glad to see the re
turn of the bayonet and carpet-lug rule.
It enrages them to know that the sym
pathies of the ueirro are largely wiili'his
ueiiiocrane iieigiinors, and that Ihe new
booth remain solid heciuisu Northern
men who have gonw down there since
the war have ha I their eve oneuelt
the true relation exis ing between tin-
races, ami the sorrowful conditions tin y
were both left in by the irrepressible
conflict. Alas for the rarity of Christian
charity in this "land of ihe free a-id
home of the brave. Not onlv is 'In-
courtesy due a vanquished f..u to.ioi'teu
neglected, lint ignorant mi l malicious
representation is indulged in. Ibov
many editors said upon the death of
Jetlerson Ihivi that he should have
been hung; thereby showing they be
lieved the scenes of tin French revolu
tion should have been re euai t.-d on
American soil. T.-o uiiinv accent the
perversion of facts that are given them
and do not seek to penetrate for them
selves the veil of passion that is not yet
entirely removed from tho dark drama
of the civil war.
The Southern people do not desire
the re-estiihlishiiieiit of slavery j Ihcy do
not sigh for tho good old anti-bcMiiin
days; they are reconciled to the inexor
able logic of events, hut they insist that
the history oi the past, and tho condi
tions of the present, shall be truly given
nnd understood. The candid, impiirthl
student of hi-tory wiio understands the
doctrines of Webster, Clay, Garrisnu,
Phillips, Lincoln and Greeley, on the one
hand, and Jeirersnii, Calhoun, Llntighw,
Tombs, Stephens and D.ivis. on the
olh-jr, knows that (he war was but the
breaking out of a lire that had he n
smouldering almost since tho founda
tion of tho government, and had many
times taxed Hie utmost powers ill
statesmanship to temporarily subdue.
He know that stale soveieiirniv was
clamored for by many of the fraiuurs of
the constitution, und was even under

this lack of explicitucHs wiim the pri
mary causo, and slavery onlv the secon
dary cause of the fraternal Btrife. The
institution of slavery ivas recognized by
the constitution and it i probable the
union could not have been formed had
it not been.
Many Southern men, Stephens niiionif
them, were opposed In secession ns a
policy and regretted slavery, but saw
no way to belter Ihe stale of iillairs and
wero forced into war by their loyalty to
stale rights. In short, if we stu Iv
calmly nil that was said in defence of
state rights and Southern views of
slavery, in the light of these later limes,
though we may conclude thnt they were
grandly mistaken, we will say that it
was the mistake of a brave, an in
telligent, ami, ns they understood it, a
liberty-loving people, 'who had initially
their own best interest, hut Iheinler-

nt exiiggeiation to the vision that
eheld so much cruelty on one side and

prevents an understanding of the true

one opinion, that eiiiaiieipaiioii was a

A copious flow of tin Ik. sustained
through many months, is a quality
which has been produced by art in do-
niesticntion. Wild cnttle rarely provide
more than eiiough milk to rear their
own offspring, 111 d the flow of it is of
comparatively sl i.it duration. Small
in volume, the ini.k iti rich in quality,
but the lacteal organs soon dry oil
rtgnm. I Ina, of i onise, is in harmony
uith tho requirements of tho young ani
mals in a wild xt.-.tc, und is a enrrcla-
ion of tho roving life and linp-linznrd
feeding of the dstius. More milk than
the calf requires under such conditions
would bo a viuito of material energy
yliich nature does not encourage It
would, moreover, be an encumbrance to
the mother. Wild cattlu are neither
pood milkers nor good futtcners, nnd in
uirts of .England wl.ero calves are al-
owed to run with their domesticated
dams generations after generations, the
breed of such nninuls is not famous for
milk-giving. Lil.e thnt of the mare and
ewe, tho 111 ilk is smaller in quantity,
rich in quality 11' d of short duration.
The desultory and irregular sucking of
a calf or foul or lamb is not conducive
to the development of a large flow of
milk, and it distinctly tends to shorten
the flow. Hand-milking of a similar
linrueter bus the sumo effect. Young
people are allowed to learn how to milk
on cows w ho nre going dry for calving,
not ou thoso w ho are still in full flow.
New beginners soou dry up a cow's
milk, and bad milkers do the same.
"Heavy milking properties, then, are
artificial, in the sense thnt they have
been developed under domestication,
and by careful breeding, for a given
end; yet, liko many other qualities,
which are a little more than mere germs
of nature, they become hereditary by
long usage. Few sorts of animals, if
any, are more nuscoptiblo than cattle of
being moulded into what we want; no
physical quality is so easily trained and
developed na that of giving milk. It is
a function which constantly varying of
itself, con be dwarfed or extended nt
will. My means of careful training,
kind treatment and intelligent hreedim
it can bo developed and mnde heredi-
tnry ; an opposite system keeps it in
Ktiite ol nature. Iho nnluts 01 a cow
aid the food she receives, have a great
ileal to do with her milking powers
quick and silent linnd-milking does the
rest. The practice of liaiul-milking
cows baa all along tended greatly to
the development of the lacteal glands,
and this development baa become her
editary in some of our milking breeds.
The ewes of the Lnrzno breed of sheep
from whose milk the famous Roquefort
cheese is mnde in Franco, hnvo been
hand-milked for generation, so that
their milking properties are now con
sidornblo nnd inherited. Br repeated
ly exciting the tents it is even possible
to ciuiho an animal that has never borne
offspring to yield a small quantity of
milk, and a cow sometimes renmint-
barren several years after having hnd .
calf, giving a profitable quantity oi
milk all the while."
