JFFiGML PAPER FOR BENTON COUNTY.
Corvallis, Oct 11, 1878.
W. S. CARTE?.,
NOTES BY THE WAY-SIDE.
Editor Gazette : It has been my
good fortune to travel over consider
able portions of Oregon daring the
last month, and I was surprised to
find in two towns onl', real energy
and vitality Portland and Albany.
Both these places are growing rap
fdly and the improvements are of the
most solid and substantial character.
Railroads are and have been the im
portant factors, and it is a shame that
demagoguery should offer legislative
barriers of any kind, to retard the
efforts of the railroad companies, cur-Vailing-
the meagre profits already-
realized, and that too in the light of
actiomtafcen by the States of Iowa
and Wisconsin; both these SlaUs
ha virigv repealed the much-talked.of
"discriminating freight aud fare bilk,''
finding railroad managers better
judges ot their business than legisla
tive bodies comprised, too often, of
inexperienced men. Judge Thomp
son's bill should not pass. If the Or
egon Solons choose the better course,
they will encourage, rather than crip
ple further railroad enterprise in this
State by unfriendly legislation.
The bill to reduce salaries of Su
premo Judges, after an animated dis
cossion in the Senate, in which Sena
tors George, Burch, Bradshaw, Prim
Burnett, Watt and Haines, partici
pated, was indefinitely pastponed.
This is generally conceded proper.
When our State constitution1 was
framed, Oregon did not have as much
court business as the counties of Mult
nomah aud Marion have now; new
districts have been created, increas
ing the traveling and other necessary
expenses, and these extra disburse
ments taken trom $2,000 per annumj
worked a hardship on the Jndges,
reducing their wages to about the
annual receipts of a third-class law
yer (if Oregon has any of that kind).
To secure able men and jurists you
must give them something better
The Legislature is busy and "lob
byists" are busier and twice as numer
ous. Pilot and fish men from Lower
Columbia, dentists, physicians, mer
chants, water men; narrow
knows- Stow many oth';r par
and otherwise, are here

St this stage, will pass.
The Oregonian's criticism on our
Representative, Dr. Green, seems to
have been-made in a spirit of good
humor without" intending to hurt the
feelings of the Dr. or his many friends.
The Dr. made an earnest defense in
what he considered the interest of the
tax payers, and it should not have
been made the pretext for an attack
on his usefulness as a member of t hat
body. If he makes any mistakes
they will be snbjects of criticism in
the future. Onr members are fully
Hp to the requirements of legislators.
Last night, after a young gentle
man of this city had safely "seen. his
lady home," and was returning, no
doubt full of the most excruciating
sentiment a mixture of love, water
melons and striped candy he was
struck over the head with a bludgeon
Ml the hands of a tramp, who made
his escape the better off for a watch
and chain; People coming to the
fair this year should be on their
guard. The country is full of des
perate men, ready to rob every unsus
pecting person they happen to find.
Salem, Oct, 2, 1873. !
House Evening Session.
Salem, Sept. 26, 1878.
On the capitol building appropriation the
house went into the committee of the whole,
Mr. Galloway in the chair.
Mr. Hendricks submitted an estimate of
the cost of needed repairs to the capitol
building, making the total estimate 16,000.
Mr. Kead urged the rejection of both
mutilated; wanted-a reasonable appropria
tion to tinish the outside of the building in
accordance with the original design.
Mr. Acton did not like the reference made
by Mr. Eeed to the Multnomah delegation;
could not vote to complete the building;
thought that $10,000 with what 13 now on
hand would be a sufficient sum.
Thompson, of Multnomah, concurred in
the remarks of Mr. Acton; did not come
here to vote money out of the state treasu
ry beyond the actual needs.
Lee hoped that personal reflections and
forecasting of political possibilities would
be dispensed with, and hoped the commit
tee would proceed to calmly discuss the bus
iness before the house; wanted to get at a
fair understanding of just what is needed.
Thompson, of Lane, thought $10,000 all
that ought to be appropriated at this time.
Scott favored the original bill, and was
opposed to the amendments; and would offer
an amendment after the vote was taken on
the one pending.
Cole would favor finishing four committee
rooms, but would oppose a liberal appropria
tion. Dorris deemed it possible to be penny
wise and pound foolish; thought S20.000
was the least sum that ought to be appropri
ated; did not think that members should
be counting he possibilities of a return to
the legislature to work ioi the best interest
of the people.
Green made the speech of the evening;
was something of a scaffold builder, and we
think he is; thought the scaffolding could
be put up for 300; would favor finishing
the main cornice; would enter into bond of
1,000 to-morrow that he could put up the
scaffolding for $50; would favor finishing
the roof and painting the cornice, could put
up the scaffolding for 150; did not want
any contingent fund; if the architect could
make the calculations to within odd cents,
he could get along without a contingent
fund; a contingent fund should be wiped out
of our memories, to be remembered no more
forever; could build the scaffolding for 100;
could move it as fast as the work was fin
ished; if he could by his vote save to the
state .S'JOO, his fflBfetitiunts would send him
to the other side of the continent to repre
sent them; he wanted to say a little more
about thin scaffold business; thought 1,000
too much; did not think the belting cornice
necessary; the scaffold could be taken down
and moved; there was enough material in
this building, so that it need not cost the
state a cent, only the work of putting it up;
ten men would scaffold one end in one day;
but to give a full outline of his eloquent
speech is more than our space will permit.
J ohnson favored an appropriat 'on of about
16,000, which he deemed a sufficient
Stearns would favor only such an appro
priation as would be fairly necessary, and
deemed 15,000 together with the 3,200
on hand a fair estimate.
Townscnd would favor an appropriation
of 16,000; believed that a sufficient sum,
and would be found voting about that sum.
Purdin would favor an appropriation of
twenty or twenty-five thousand dollars.
The amendment by Thompson, of Lane,
to insert 10,000, was lost.
Scott moved to insert 27,496 50.
On motion the time of speeches was lim
ited to five minutes.
Scott thought that 30,000 was the least
sum that would be safe; the amendment
was lost. .
Thompson, of Lane, moved an amend
ment fixing the amount at 72,000 together
with 3,200; -the amendment -was lost.
Scott moved to amend by inserting 20.

of the 4th inst , Mr. Col. VanCleve,

and steps behind the screen. Gen.

We insist that greenbacks, instead of be

H B No 48; relating to the rate of interest
and prevent usury; Thompson was opposed to
tbe passage of the bill for tbe reason tbat it
would have the effect to drive capital out of the
state; Grant favored the bill, thought 10 per
cent was enough, instead of driving money out
of the state it might drive some of it into some
useful manufacturing enterprise; Cole did not
think it possible to regulate by law interest on
money, money loaners always' found some way
to evade tbe law and instead of reducing the
rate of interest it would only complicate affairs;
Schellaburg did not think the bill would have
the desired effect; the bill was laid on the tattle.
House met at 2 o'clock.
THIRD RBADIlfO OF BILLS.
H B No 50; to regulate the sale of spirituous
liquors. Gates did not think it expedient to
pass this bill; it seemed to him that it would
take the matter out of tbe h nds of the citizens
of cities to regulate their own affairs. Cole was
opposed to the bill for the reason that it would
not give any revenue to small towns; it would
not stop the trade. Thompson would favor
tbe insertion of a section requiring that no
license except to persons of good moral char
acter. Townsend hoped the bHl would pass, i!
this house did not want to enact such a law,
hence was opposed to referring the bill to the
committee; did not kn.w that there was a man
in the state of a good moral character who
wanted to sell spirituous liquors. Lee favored
tbe bill; thought it would remedy an evil that
now exists in our present system of obtaining
licenses. Grant favored tbe bill; wanted it to
pass just as it was. Ramsby, Reed, Purdin aud
Tyson earnestly favored the passage of the bill.
