A LOSS TO OREGON UTY.
The placing of the steamer Ramona on
the upper Willamette trade, means a practi
cal withdrawal from the Oregon City and
Tortland route by the Oregon City Trans
portation Co. Of course they will by their
new schedule have a boat each way daily
between this city and Portland, but all di
rect benefit to Oregon City will cease, for
the boats will no longer lie in Oregon City,
and all supplies for the boat and families of
thecrew will come from Portland, for they
will all have to move to that city.
The amount of money lefl in Oregon City
each month by the steamer Ramona is far
more than oar people realize. For wood,
$180 each month is paid out. The grocery
stores get 125 each month of the boat's
money, while the other business houses av
erage $40 for incidentals. The salary of the
crew amounts to 1420 per month, and; as
they all live here this money is spent in the
city. With the withdrawal of the boat all
this money will go to other towns. Captain
Graham and Purser Randall will have to
move their lamilies to Portland, thus en
tailing another loss to the business men of
Ttiere is no possibility of another boat
coming on the route, for the trade will not
sustain a boat now that so much is shipped
on the electric car. If the electric car gave
a cheaper and better service there might be
some eicuse for tlie desertion of the boats.
But the facts of the case are that the boats
have given as cheap and efficient service as
the electric cars, and the officers have
been as obliging as one could ask. The
restless desire of Americans for a change is
the only apparent reason for the shippers
leaving the boat for the cars.
The salary of possibly one man residing
in the city is all the'direct benefit the freight
car wilt be to Oregon City, while the ob
struction to the street will more than offset
this benefit. The freezing out of the boats
is a penny wise and pound foolish policy
for Oregon City.
TiiitT tell us that the prosperity of a town
can be told by the number of gambling
places it has in operation. If such be the
case Oregon City will tie a very prosperous
town for the coming year.

Rev. Williams preached in the Congrega

Cleveland's message to congress con
tained little that was new and was merely a
rehash of bis well known views on free
trade and financial matters. The all im
portant fact that is staring the country
in the face of a deficit in the treasury, be
made no reference to, evidently thinking
that his secretary and the English bankers
could attend to that without the help of
congress. His remedial legislation which
he recommends, is the same old prescrip
tion that has nearly brought death to bis
patient, the people, and congress will give
little beed to it now that the republicans
are able to put on the brake. In his for
eign policy, which he outlines, he attempts
to make a show of vigor and American
ism, but it abounds with the same vacillat
ing spirit that has dominated bis adminis
tration of foreign affairs. Bo far as the
good it will do in influencing legislation
or enlightening the people, Cleveland's
message was a failure.
We will have tons of candy, nuts and
fruits for Christmas trade and we are
going to sell them cheap.

Wedhesday the Oregonian celebrated its
forty-fifth birthday. Tbe first number was a
little six-column paper of four pages, pub
lished weekly. For a number of years it
bad a checkered career, and it was only by
the extraordinary industry and persever
ance of Mr. H. L. Pittock, one of the pres
ent owners who came into possession of the
paper after others had failed, that the Ore
goiiian lived to become the great paper
that it now is. Tbe Oregonian has come to
be one of the leading daily papers of the
country, and its editorial columns are not
excelled by even tbe New York or Chicago
papers for breadth and depth of thought.
From a moral standpoint the Oregonian is
one of the cleanest dailies we have, for it
gives very little of the sensational news of
tbe day, presentir g a marked contrast to
tbe Ban Francisco and New York dailies in
the columns of slush and debasing matter
given their readers.
Thc city election of Monday was really
jt victory for the law and order element,
notwithstanding a part of their ticket was
defeated. It demonstrated to the better
element of Oregon City that with better
organization and a closer guard on tbe un
scrupulous methods of the opposing tide,
the control of the city government could be
asily bad, and an another year they will
