    ALBANY REGISTER.
V. 8. Offlrlnl Fpfr for Oregon.
SATURDAY, SEPT. 13, 1873.
Hon. Hiram Smith. Of Hon.
Hiram Smitli, of Harrisburg, Liui
county, who yesterday received the
nomination of the Republican State
Convention tor Congress, we have this
to say : Socially he stands high, not
only in the neighborhood where he
resides, but wherever he is known,
As a business man his integrity and
honesty has never been questioned,
ne is an old. true and unflinching Re
publican, from principle. He itf large
ly endowed with what Ls generally
termed "horse sense," and will not
be led into any act or scheme that
will reflect upon himself, his constit
uents or the Republican partv. If
elected he will work for the interests of
Oregon, and make no attempt to fill
in his time making speeches for buncombe.
The Victim.
Gen. J. W. Xesmith got away with
the nomination at Portland on the
9th, and Ms friends are jubilant there
at. The friends of Hons. Geo. R.
Helm and J. H. Slater are not so ex
ultant over the nomination. It is pos
sible that the majority of the disaffect
ed bedrockers can be whipped into the
Nesmith traces in time to vote right,
but there are a number of bedrock
Democrats in Linn county that cant
be cajoled or driven into casting a
vote for the man who has done so
much toward destroying the Demo
cratic party. There are others who
take the plank in the Democratic plat
form manufactured by the Convention
iu relation to the back pay steal, to
mean something; andasXez. is one
of the guilty parties, they propose to
repudiate him. Poor Nez., all his lit
tle blackguard stories will avail him
nothiug he's outlived his usefulness,
and with other deadbeats of the Dem
ocratic party will be shelved in Octo
ber, never more to figure outside of a
County Convention.
' The Bach Pnjr Bill.
As is proven by the records, the
'back pay" steal is a Democratic
measure, sixty-three Democratic Sen
ators and Representatives having voted
for it, while but thirty-nine voted
against it a Democratic majority ot
twenty-four in favor of the steal. The
Republican vote was seventy-five
Senators and Representatives for the
bill, and eighty-three against it being
a Republican majority of eight votes
against the bill. And yet when Dem
ocratic candidates are called upon to
explain their position in the matter,
instead of claiming, as it in truth is,
that the "back pay" steal was a Dem
ocratic measure, carried through by
Democratic votes they at once pro
ceed to offering all kinds of absurd ex
cuses, and charge the whole matter
upon a "corrupt Republican Adminis
tration." It is a Democratic measure,
as the vote proves, and if there is
blame attaching to any party for the
passage of such a measure, the Demo
cratic party must stand the odium.
Lost his shirt. A party of tour
ists in California, desirous of testing
the cleansing qualities of the not
sprhigs, attempted to wash a flannel
oversnirt belonging to one of them in
the boiling waters. After carefully
soaping the garment, they committed
it to oue ot the least active cauldrons
in the basin, when, to their astonish
ment, the water in toe spring suddenly
receded, carrying the shirt out of
sight. Curiosity led them the next
morning to revisit the spring, which
proved to be a geyser of considerable
force ; and as they stood in mute as
tonishment upon the edge, and gazed
down iu corrugated skies, listening to
the gurgling and spluttering of the
water and the ominous intonations be
neath, an eruption suddenly took place,
which projected the missiiw shirt.
amid a column of water and vapor, to
the height of twenty feet into the air,
and in its descent it was caught upon
one of the numerous sllicious projec
tions which surround the edge of the
crater, and recovered.
That Resolution.
Mr, Humason, of Dalles, from the
Committee on Resolutions in the re
cent Democratic State Convention, in
troduced a resolution condemning Sen
ator Mitchell, and requesting Ins resig
nation or expulsion from the halls of
Congress. Of course, a resolution of
this character was to be expected from
such a body lor it lias been the prac
tice, of late years, for Democratic as
semblies to ask and insist on Republi
can office-holders resigning their posi
tions. It is very common, very cheap,
and amounts to nothing. We only
call attention to the matter, to notice
a little difference Of opinion between
gentlemen of the Committee as to Hu
mason's assertion that the "resolution
was rhesenseof the Committee." The
introduction of the resolution was like
casting a bomb shell into the Conven
tion, and a hot debate was inaugurated
at once. During tlie progress of the
debate, Mr. J. H. Smith, of Linn, a
member of the Committee on Resolu
tions, asserted that the resolution un
der consideration was rejected by the
Committee, thus flatly contradicting
the assertion of Humason that the res
olution was offered by him as the
sense of the Committee. Thus it will
be seen that Humaon, with that
boundless cheek tor which he is noted,
with a lie in his mouth, offers the res
olution. Another noteworthy fact is
that when the resolution is placed
upon its final passage there are but
thirty-five votes for its passage, in a
vote of one hundred and twenty in
other words, twenty-eight members of
the Convention vote against the reso
lution, and fifty-seven refuse to vote
at all. The resolution does not even
have a majority vote of the Conven
tion. And yet Xesmith will doubtless
parade this resolution in all his speech
es its having the endorsement of the
Democratic State Convention !
The Wheat Crop Iu Europe
The Xew York Daily Bulletin of
Aug. 28, has the following crop
reports:
BOHEMIA.
Prague, Aug. 8, 1873. The grain
crop in Bohemia will be above an
average, w heat promises, a good
medium yield, rye a lighter oie, but
oats, barley and rape, which have been
firuered. show a brilliant result,
he ability to purchase iu Bohemia
and all Austria depends altogether
upon the grain crops and hence busi
ness prospects are more promising.
HUNGARY.
The accounts from Hungarv are to
the effect that now threhing has
begun, the kingdom will show medium
crop of wheat in the Banat, so far as
piautity is concerned : the quality is
poor, in tne inerss country the
result is still less satisfactory. In the
Baca and Central Hungary the crop
is limited in yield, but in Sclavonia
the wheat yield will be fully up to
1872. Rveisa failure. Barley promi
ses well, and Indian corn and oats are
most abundant in yield. Total result
middling.
ITALY.
The official (Government) accounts
from Upper and Central Italy are
most satisfactory, so far as the "grain
crops are concerned. Private reports
from Southern Italy are also most
flattering.
THE BLACK SEA.
The advices from Taganrog (tele
graphic) are to the effect that within
150 kilometres from that port the
yield of grain will prove most mis
erable in point of quality, but the
farther the traveler penetrates into
the interior the better the general
aspect of the fields get to be. The
continual rains tliey are having lead
to apprehensions of danger, however,
and we ought to caution against being
over sanguine so far as the Black Sea
crops In general are concerned
Following horrible deed is tele
graphed from Fort Bridger, Sept. 9th:
Reports from Pleasant Hill, Nebraska,
state that the jail at that place was
burned on Sunday morning last. Four
Inmates were burned to death.' The
fire was the work of an incendiary.
Times in Baker county are reported
wd. Teamsters are in demand at
5 and $80 per month. All the mines
are being worned, and are paying good
dividends.
ALBANY AND SAVI'IAH (ANAL.
The Albany and Santiaui Canal
i Company would respectfully ml) the
attention of the public, and especially
! the Capitalist, and thoe desiring to
engage in manufacturing, to their
gigantic water power and water priv
ilege. Sixteen thousand cubic feet
i constantly flowing every minute, equal
I to 800 horse power, with from 8 to 30
I feet fall, sufficient for tlie most ex'en
j sive machinery, with ground on which
I to erect the necessary buildings, etc.
The Company deem it but prop that
the public should know more fully the
locality of this great water power, its
laciliti' s and surroundings, iu order
that those unacquainted may form
some estimate of its value.
The city of Albany is the county-seat
of Linn county, located on the south
east bank of the Willamette river,
about 100 miles south of Portland, by
river, and 80 miles by railroad; sou'h
Of Salem 45 miles by river and 30 miles
by railroad, and uorth of Eugene City
45 miles.
Albany is located in a prairie of the
same name, whieh is the great agricul
tural center of the Willamette Valley,
and it is believed that upward of 500.
000 bushels of surplus wheat will be re
ceived at that point, the present season.
The most of it will find its way to for
eign markets, either by boats or rail
road to Portland, and from thence ii
ou the ocean. The Willamette river
is navigated by beautiful steamers,
carrying from SO to 300 tons running
as far as Albany some ten months in
the year. Also, the 0. & C, R. R ,
with its beautiful locomotives, is pass
ing through the city daily. Tlie city
ot Albany is located upon a high, roll
ing prairie, with the Calapooia. a beau
tiful creek, flowing into the Willamette
river on the west, the water of which
is used in driving two large flouring
mills, situated on the bank of the Wil
lamette river. The city is about one
mile in length, running vast and west,
and from one-half to three-fourths
of a mile in width, and is laid off with
streets of good width.
The Canal, which is the subject and
object of this communication, receives
its waters from the South Santiaui
river, which heads in the great Cascade
mountains, some 75 miles east of
Albany ; thence running westerly
through a valley of the same name, to
Lebanon, a village located near the
west bank of said river, 13 miles east
of Albany. The Canal receives the
waters from tlie Santlam river at that
point, them running west to its ter
minus at Alliauy. The main Santiam
flows northward, and empties it-
mountain waters into the Willamette
river 10 miles northeast of Albany
The Canal is brought from Lebanon
through beautifurprairie for a dis
tanee of 12 miles, and empties into the
Willamette river, forming on its way
and in the city some of the finest water
powers for manufacturing purposes
lounu on tne racltle coast, there are
but tew, if any, points in the State
which surpasses Albany now, for man
ufacturiug facilities'. Cheap water
power anil easy of access, and conveu
ient transportation, either by water or
railroad, and the location beautiful and
healthy.
The Canal Company offers liberal
inducements to persons desiring to en
gage in the business ot manufacturing.
and will furnish water power upon the
most reasonable terms. Manufactur
ing Of ail kinds is needed in Oregon.
and could be made profitable. The
Canal Company will agree to furnish.
within sixty days any water power
needed, from a buttou factory to that
oi a locomotive.
Immigrants and others are earnestly
liivitea anu requested to visit Albany
and examine for themselves. Real
property can yet be procured on very
reasonable terras both in and out of
the city. Our people compare favor
ably witli the rest ot mankind, morally
socially, politically anu nuanciaiiy.

A Strong Hint. The Lebanon
(Tennessee) Herald gets off the follow
ing: '
We gently, and, as It were, uncon
sciously, pushed a paper-weight toward
the end of the table where she sat.
Directly it attracted her attention.
She looked at it, took it up, looked
more earnestly, and then, laying it
gently down, site calmly rose, gath
ered her ample skirts about her and
straightway took her leave, not even
saying good-bye. We hope she wasn't
angry. Certainly nothing was further
from our intentions than to give
offense. We merely wished to attract
her attention to the paper-weight as a
work of art. We regard it as a fine
work of art, and value i solely for
that reason but the effect It has on
some visitors is remarkable and inex
plicable. It is a small slab of crystal,
through which may be seen a sketch
representing a skeleton, surrounded
by this legend : "This unfortunate
editor was talked to death."
Notwithstanding all they say
against it, there is not an editor in
the State who would refuse to
accept "backpay" from subscrib-
era
