The Democracy or California Swallow
the "Siew departure.
The telegraph informs us that the
Democratic State Convention of Cali
fornia which met at Sacramento on the
21st and 22d of June, was very harmoni
ous, and dispatched business in a hurry.
It adopted substantially the Vallandig-
ham "new departure" dodge, recogniz
ing the Constitution as it now stands,
with ail the amendments; opposing rail
road subsidies J favoring the distribution
of public lands among actual settlers ;
urged rigid economy in National and
State affairs; insisted upon the abolU
tion of the income tax, and all sinecure
officers ; opposed Chinese emigration,
and, of course, denounced the misman
agement of national affairs by the Re
publhan party. After the adoption of
platform, tho following nominations were
made: For : Governor, II. H. Haight;
for Lieut. Governor, E. J. Lewis; Su
preme J udges, Jackson Temple and Sei
dell S. Wright ; Secretary of State, W.
B. C. Brown ; Comptroller, R. O. De
witt ; Supt. of Schools, O. P Fitzgerald ;
Treasurer, A. Coroncl ; Attorney Gen
eral, Jos. Hamilton; Surveyor General,
J. W. Borst ; State Printer, John Barry;
Clerk Supreme Court, Thos. Laspayer ;
Harbor Commissioner, I. Friedlander.
J. W. Coffroth was nominitid for
Congress in the middle district.
Complications in Europe. Bis
marck demands that England shall cede
to Germany the island of Heligoland, a
little affair of not above five square miles
in the North sea, now used by England
as a naval station. Up to ' 1807 it be
longed to Denmark, but in that year was
seized by England in order to foil the
schemes of tho great Napoleon. New
Germany wants it for naval purposes, and
claims it on the ground that it once be
longed to Schleswig, once a province of
Denmark, since absorbed by Germany.
England replies that she is not required
ti consult the wishes or wants of Ger
many in looking out for her own in
terests. This little affair, small though
it now looks, may lead to a scrimmage
between the two powers, and if we are to
judge of the result in the light of tbe
recent settlement with France, Great
Britain is about to lose some of her pop
ulation and sink a good deal of cash to
her own detriment. And the feeling
throughout America will be, we fear,
"and may the best man win."
Indian Department. The Salem
Statesman gets the following information
from Superintendent A. B. Meachaia :
The exterior boundaries of the Umatilla
Reservation have been surveyed, and the
land is now being subdivided by farther
surveys. A Council has been appointed
to meet at Umatilla, August 7th, to com
mence negotiations for the purchase of
the Umatilla lan Js from the Indians. T.
W. Davenport will soon commence the
survey and subdivision of the lands on
the Sileiz Reservation. Mr. T. B.
Handley is now engaged in surveying
the Warm Springs Reservation, and a
Mr. Mercer is doing the like duty at
Klamath. As. soon as harvest is over,
Col. D. P. Thompson will, commence the
survey at Grand Ronde. These surveys
are made in accordance with treaty stip
ulations, as the Indians arc eager to own
their own lands and carry on independent
farmirg. Chief Clerk of the Depart
ment, Mr. C. S. Woodworth, has gone
out to the Lebanon road, to locate a route
from Camp Polk to connect, with the
Klamath road at the Upper Deschutes
crossing. This is to secure a dircet route
from Salem to Klamath for government

A terrible tornado passed over South
western Kansas a few ; days since. The
town of El Dorado was nearly destroyed,
over one hundred houses being demolish
ed. The damage was about $60,000.
The storm did great damage to the crops;
fences were blown down' and ' houses un
roofed throughout a large scope of coun

the Plains for years.
Chop Phospects in the East.
Press dispatches to the 29th of June,
from Eastern and Northern Iowa, Eas
tern and . Southern Wisconsin, Northern
and Western Indiana, and from all parts
of Illinois, state that the crops promise to
be among tbe best known for years.'
Wheat is injured somewhat, in some sec
tions by rust, but generally the crop is
much above the average. In Miuncsota,
however, reports are not so favorable.
In many localities there will only be half

from Venezuela represent the state of
affairs as deplorable. 1 Society is disor
ganized in most parts of the country.
Commerce is destroyed. And business
of all kinds is exceedingly dull. The
political state of the country is anything
but quiet. There is no communication
between sea ports, and iterior and private
correspondence is often intercepted. The
United States are said to suffer from the
absence of representatives.
The California official State organ,
the Reporter, says the Democratic State
Convention committed a great mistake
when it nominated II. II.: Haight, as
the ensuing election will show. If the
entire Republican ticket is not elected in
that State, we shall miss our guess, not
withstanding the adoption by the Demo

A populous county is Alturas, Idaho

is the all-absorbing topic of the city, and
the Clubs ring with it. Itiis gaining
credence, and the latest statement is that

the war 1812, where the claimant has
received a bounty land warrant, test

Letter From Father Shepherd.
Boise City, I T , June 22d, 1871.
Editoh Register : Dear Sir
Here we are, in good health and spirits,
after a journey by boat, railroad and
stage, of six days, and three days stop
page, making, in all, nine days. We left
Albany Monday, June 12th, arrived at
Portland sams- day, and found we were
one day too late, or three days too soon
t$ make the connection with tha boat
above the Dalles ; stayed one day in
Portland, took the boat, a very fine one,
too, clever and accommodating officers,
and arrived at the Dalles Wednes
day evenings and found "the town
flooded with water, the Umatilla House
deserted as well as many other houses,
and stopped at the Empire Hotel; re
mained there: two days, during which
.time the water took possession of the
lower rooms, and we were compelled ti
go out to our meals on a temporary bridge.
Saturday morning at 2 ' o'clock we took
the.stage, the railroad being flooded by
water, for Celio, where we took the boat
for Umatilla, and arrived there all safe
the same evening, and stopped at the
Orleans House went in on a bridge,
as at tho -Dalles, Left Umatilla at 2
o'clock , Sunday morning, on the stage,
and arrived atUniontown, in the Grand
Ronde valley, that evening; left thereat
2 o'clock next morniDg and arrived at
Boise City SEuesday at 3 o'clock P. M.,
without a pause, except to change teams
and get meals, and found ourselves all
right, and our friends all well. We
found good stages, good teams and good
drivers, and tbe roads not so bad or
rough as we expected to find them. We
found the trip to be an expensive one,
but us pleasant .: as could be expected
under1 the circumstances ; the weather
rather warm and the roads dusty, but wc
stood the trip well Father improved in
health, but a little jolted up. We ex
pect to remain here over tho 4th of July,
and then resume our jouruey.
We passed over some good country
and some veiy poor. The Boise Valley
is a very good body of land ; very fine
crops of wheat, . barley, and some corn
and potatoes. Boise City is beautifully
situated, is very neat, and looks prosper
ous ; has about 1,500 inhabitants, and a
number of good business houses, all of
whom appear to be doing a , good busi
ness. This is a fast country, fast towns,
and fast people; all love money, not for
its intrinsic val.ue, but for the enjoyment
it brings them. They are friendly,
sociable, hospitable, genteel, and very
courteous to strangers.
Effect-of the' Treaty. A Halifax
dispatch of June 13th says :
The Ret-orJer gives, on good authority,
a report that after the treaty is ratified by
Great Britain the naval command on this
station will be reduced to a Commodore
ship, and Halifax will no longer be a
rendezvous lor war vessels. It fur
ther says that Lord John Hay, uow a
member of the Admiralty, is to be the
-Departed. The Eugene Guard
(Detn.) criticises one of the 'villainy
accepters" of its party in this original
: The editor of the Salem Mercvry was
attacked so suddenly and so violently with
the nigger epidemic, known as the "new
departure," that he hadn't' time to turn
around, but, donkey-like, backed clear
into the mongrel party, till there is noth
ing visible of. him but a pair of mon
strous ears sticking out of the hole he
backed out at.
The St. Louis Dispatch is shocked at
the bad manners of some, of the board
ers it knows of, and proceeds to read
them the following little lecture : "Don't
say 'pass' the krout, or 'shove along the
hash ; well-conducted boarders always
say, 'Will yo be so kind as to esort the
lobseouse hitherward.' "
Referring to the proposed invitation to
Horace Greeley, ' the Statesman says :
When Mr. Thomas Smith, of Umpqua,
was President 6f the State .Agricultural
Society, Mr. Mioto, as Secretary, at his
(Mr; 'Smith's) suggestion, wrote to Mr.
Greeley, giving him an invitation to
deliver the Annual Address to the Socie
ty, to which he returned a courteous
answer, saying that his then engagements
would prevent hi in from accepting the
invitation, but that he hoped to visit
California soon after the opening of the
Central Pacific Railroad, and if ciicum
btances should permit he would be glad
to extend his visit to Oregon. We hope
the effort will bo renewed with better

return from Chicago the first of this

business transactions East; and that ar
rangements were made for the completion
of the Malhuer Rurnt River Consolida
tion Ditch. It is 'the expectation of the
Company to have the Ditch completed by
the middle of next month. With plenty
of water, which this ditch is intended to
carry, it is thought the Willow Creek
mines will be one of the best camps on
the coast. We hope the miners there
will not be disappointed in their antici
pations. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr.
James Shepherd,, of Kcosauqua, Iowa,
who arrived here on last Taesday, even

Eastern home. He is an active old gen
tleman of 72 years. He is accompanied

Lizzie Smith of Oregon. He is stopping

Ou Tuesday morning, a few minutes
past six o'clock, cur citizens were alarm
ed by the cr' oi lire, which caused a
general stampede for the locality from
which the alarm came. The fire origi
nated on Idaho street, below Eighth, m a
building occupied by a Chinaman. With
in fiitcen minutes after the alarm was
given the fire bursted out o! the roof of
the building, and from .this building the
fire spread to the adjoining buildings.
The tire is said to have originated from
carelessness ou the part of the occupant.
Thera were some fifteen or sixteen Chi
nese tenements burned. The houses
were erected by a Mr. Anthony, ou the
corner of Idaho and Eighth streets, im
mediately in the rear of the Overland
Hotel. Los, not to exceed three thous
and dollars. li is bad policy for our citi
zens who have houses to reut, to let
Chinese have them within the thiekly
built portion of the city, 'as tho fire of
Tuesday demonstrates. If citizens who
have houses to let do not refuse to reut
them to the cek-siiuls, our City Fathers
ought, for the safety of the City, take
the matter in hand and regulate this mat
tei. It is a shame that a cityoi the tize
of this should nut even hava a Hook und
Ladder Company. Wo have plenty o!
good fi'-euien iu our city who would be
iilad to organize a fire Company. A
small contribution by each of our citizens
would procure a good Truck- with hooks,
etc., with' which a. vast amount of prop
erty might be saved from the destroying
eleroeur.- Cannot our City Fathers do
something in this connection ? We be
lieve, under our City Charter, they have
the power to levy a tax for the purpose
of establishing and maintaining a fire de
partment. If so, let them do it, and the
citizens will sustain them in this necessa
ry and laudable movement.

, The Hood River Country.
The Dalles Mountaineer of June 24th
gives this sketch :
Hood River Valley is situated on the
south side of the Columbia river, twenty
five miles below the Dalles, and rejoices
iu two small settlements, one on tho
west, and one on the east side of the
river. There is in tbe neighborhood
twenty or thirty thousand acres of land
adapted to agriculture, of which but a
small portion ia as yet occupied. The
valley consists in part of prairie, but
mostly of timbered land, all of which is
thickly covered with mountain bunch
grass of the finest quality, as the graniv
orous animals thereabout attest. With a
small amount of forage cattle may be
kept in beef condition the year round.
Cattle reared in this valley are larger at
one year old than those reared in the
Willamette are at two. Heavy crops of
acorns every year or so, and a vast
amount of canias and other roots that
exist in great abundance renders it a de
sirable place for the hog raiser. Horses
keep very fat the year round with little
or no grain. Hood river ruses in Mount
Hood, and may well be styled a moun
tain torrent, for its waters do" not flow,
but dash down its rocky channel with
astonishing-rapidity, after a turbulent
meandering of some sixty miles, finally
losing itself in the Columbia on the
north side of the valley. , If there was
any lack of water-power in this country,
Hood'rivcr would of itself supply it, and
yet have enough left for the tons of
trout that glory iu its waters.
Deer, bear,. . grouse, prairie chickens
constitute the principal assortment of
Bailey, wheat, oats, and some of the
principal cultivated grasses are raised in
sufficient quantities for home use, and
some to spare. Vegetables cf all kinds
do well. The apple, pear, peach, plum,
grape, and all of the smaller fruits grow
in profusion and possess a much finer
flavor than those grown in the Willam
Hood river Valley is not the place, in
my opinion, that everybody expects to
reach in that "good time coming," yet it
is a place where thieves may break in
they rarely ever break out with much
boot3-, the geographical situation of the
valley prevents speculation ot that kind.
Some of tho material advantages which
this valley has over many other locali
ties arc these : Namely, iu having choice
of two good markets. The farmer's pro
duce may be placed in The Dalles market
within two and a half hours from the
time it is shipped, or iu the Portlaud
market in about seven. If the farmer
accompanies his freight to The Dalles he
need not be away from the little ones at
home more than one night, and not es
tend his board bill beyond on4 dollar.

NEW ' TO-DAY.
Ingenious Plan to Raise the
Wind. An elderly Englishman, having
discovered that be had exhausted his
fortune, adopted an ingenious, plan to be
cared for comfortably during the remain
der of his life. lie kept his bankrupt
coudition a profound secret; but, still
having th reputation of a milliouairej he
made his will, leaving liberal sums to
his relatives, friends, and various chari
ties. By his frieuds and the philanthro
pists he was consequently made welcome,
being generously entertained at theii
homes until the day of his death. A.
superb funeral was furnished, and then
his will was read. The bequests were
made as had been promised; but when
the estate was administered upon, it was
found to be wholly valueless and the dis
