OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE STATE
OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COUNTY
Corvallis, ffov. 28, 1879.
W. B. CARTKR,
APPLES FOR EXPORT.
Experience lias well established the
fact that the farmers of Oregon
should not confine themselves exclu
sively to wheat growing. Much has
been said and written upon the ad
vantages of a variety of crops, and
every intelligent farmer understands
the advantages of the same. But
there is one crop that our Oregon
farmers have become far too careless
with and that is fruit, especially ap
ples. In traveling through our state,
visitors are astonished at the dilapi
dated condition ot the orchards.
Trees are rnoss-grown, unpruned and
uncultivated, and present a very rag
ged and nninvitinfr appearance. As
a natural consequence the fruit is of
inferior quality and quantity limited.
There are, however, a few of the
farmers of Benton who are waking
up to the importance of fruit cultnre,
and their orchards begin to resume
their original taste and thrift. An
fmportant incentive in this direction
is the advantages of a ready market
offered in the countieis of Bsnlon,
Linn and Lane, by the formation of
the Corvallis Fruit Company, by
Messrs. Wallis Nash and James
Readman, of this city. These gen
tlemen have purchased the riahts of
these three counties for the Plummer
Fruit Driers, and expect, next season,
to ship hundreds of tons of dried
fruit to the London market. They
have ample means, and the energy as
well, to push this enterprise to the
fullest success. Mr. Geo Sill, an ac
tive canvasser, is traveling agent of
the company, and will visit eveiy
portion of these counties in the in
terest of the Plummer Driers. This
is only the beginning of a develop
ment of a series of industries, by our
English friends, which, in a few
years, will astonish our Oregon far
mers. Capital, energy, and sound
judgment, will insure " good times "
The San Fiancisco Chronicle of the
8th inst., has the following sensible
article on apple growing, applying
eqlly to Oregon, since the " Ore
gon red apples" already have a. fine
reputation abroad :
As every good farm should have its or
chard, and as apple treee are the staple in
every good orchard in Central and Northern
California, it will interest most of the Chron
icle's agricultural readers to know that a
new market is opening for our apples away
off in the southern hemisphere. Better still
is the news that the California apple reaches
even the distant market of Auckland, New
Zealand, in a finer condition than that of
the same fruit imported there from the
neighboring island of Tasmania. We make
these statements on the authority of the
Auckland Argus, October 11th. Speaking
of the low grade of apples sent thither from
Hobart Town, the Argus congratulates the
New Zealanders upon the fact that Tasmania
has at last found a formidable rival in Cali
fornia. It says : " The last mail steamer
brought from San Francisco 600 cases of ap
ples packed to perfection. " We quote for
the encouragement both of the packers and
erchardists here :
Fach case is a neatly got-up box, machine
"planed, and eveay apple in thin tissue paper
and not a mark or flaw to be seen on the
fruit. With regard to the quality of the
fruit, eight houses we visited yesterday each
stated that the last spipment of California
apples was far superior to any ever received
from Hobart Town. The wholesale price of
Cilifornia apples is from 3 to 4 pence,
which is very little more than that paid for
Hobart Town apples, and we shall not be
surprised to see the Hobart Town shippers
completely beaten out of this market.
It is probable that the New Zealanders
may be able by and by to raise their own
apples, but if the orchardists of this State
and Oregon take proper pains in selection
and shipping they will always have a mar
ket in the South Sea Islands for a large part
of their fruit at paying prices, for the rea
son that this is a better country for the ap
ple than that. England has always been
regarded as a tolerably good climate for the
growth of the apple, yet it is the American
fruit notably the Rhods Island greening
which always comands the highest price in
the London market ; and we have already
developed varieties in this State superior to
the Rhode Island greening. Among these
may be most prominently ranked the Ales
sandria, a very large, well-formed, red
streaked apple, of the finest flavor. About
fifteen years ago an Italian gardener and
horticulturist of Santa Clara revisited his
native town, Alessandria, Italy, where this
particular apple is extensively cultivated,
it struck him that the climate of California
was-adapted to its perfect development, and
on this thought he - imported a number of
young trees. From this beginning the Ales
sandria apple has spread over several of the
bay counties, and this season-many cases of
them were sold in the San Francisco mar
ket at the highest prices. Like many varie
ties of imported grapes and pears and cher
ries, the Alessandria applee is found to do
better here than in the country of its nativ
ity. The Steamship Duncan. The Coos Bay
News of the 8th, says : The Duncan still
lies .on the beach where she was stranded,
notwithstanding the fact that the interior
papers have removed her to Coos Bay, Cres
cent City and other ports along the coast.
Capt. Carroll is at present engaged in build
ing a dam across the month of Rouge river
for the purpose of turning the channel along
side the Duncan and floating her off, if
successful. He is also engaged in moving
the seow schooner Esther Cobos which went
ashore a short distance below the Duncan,
across the spit river, into which, after a few
necessary repairs nave been completed, sbe
will be launched. She was sold at auction
and purchased by Capt. Carroll for 81 .000.
Her injuries are very light.
Chase's Survey Confirmed
ENTRANCE TO YAQUINA ALL RIGHT.
Only Soft Rock to Remove.
In 1S68 Lieut. Chase, of the TJ. S.
coast survey, made a careful examin
ation and chart of the entrance to
Yaquina Bay. His report has been
published in the Gazette several
times, and with it our readers are
Capt. G. VT. Wood, of the U. S.
Eng. corps, acting under instructions
from Col. Gillespie, has just com
pleted a further examination of the
entrance to Yaquina Bay, and of
course we cannot speak officially of
the findings until his report has been
received by the department at Wash
ington and made public. Enough,
however, is made known to us from
those who accompanied him to the
Yaquina to authorize us to state that
his examinations fully corroborate
Lieut. Chase's survey in every par
ticular. The entrance is even belter
than its most sanguine friends antici
pated, and its improvement, in the
near future, seems now a foregone con
clusion. These facts we gather from E. A.
Abbey, Esq., who took Capt. Wood
over to Yaquina, as announced in
last Gazette, and petnrned with him
last Tuesday evening. The next
morning Capt. Wood proceeded to
Portland, and will immediately go to
The Dalles on official business.
Mr. Wallis Nash, who was also at
the Bay while the examination was
being made, returned home on Tues
day evening. Of course he is well
pleased with the outlook,, which con
tinually brightens. Every move now
indicates lively times in this county
next season. The future of Benton
county was never bo bright as now,
and our readers wilf pardon us for
allowing our chanticleer to be heard
at this time. Benton county is in
the right place, and possesses the key
not only of the Willamette valley,
but of Central and Eastern Oregon.
In the language of a Portland cotem
porary, " Crow, Chapman, crow."
Now is the time for the friends of
the Yaquina railroad to rally. It
only requires a little more united
effort, on our part, to close the gap
between Corvallis and the Yaquina
Bay, where our wh?at can be placed,
in bulk, upon the largest foreign
ships that come to this coast. Less
than sixty Biilfs of railroad from Cor
vallis gives this outlet. The iron
and rolling stock for the first ten
miles are now on hand, here and at
Portland, and will be laid down early
next season. No wonder that prop
erty is advancing in priee at Corval
lis, and all along the line of the Ya
Last week we published in the
Gazette a most admirable article
from the able pen of A. T, Hawley,
the special correspondent of the San
Frar.cisco Bulletin, relative to Ya
quina Bay its commercial import
ance and agricultural advantages
clearly showing that Benton county
is to Oregon what Los Angeles is to
California. Mr. Hawley does not,
like many writers, form his opinions,
and base his prophecies, upon the
word of other.', but from personal
observations. He was the fiist cor
respondent of a California journal to
visit Yaqnina Bay, and the first one
who has had the nerve and manliness
to " write up" Oregon as he finds it,
in all particulars.
His racy letters, and faithful, vivid
pen pictures of Oregon, safe fast plac
ing the Bulletin, as it should be, in
the lead" of all other California publi
cations, in this state. He has spent
considerable time in Benton, and as
an evidence of appreciation ot his
untiring labor, and truthful, honest
representations of our county, large
lists of subscribers are given him at
every postoffice that he has visited,
and thes lists will continue to increase
in numbers. Ht
" facts and figures," without drawing
upon his imagination. In this,
Mr. Hawley stands at the head of his
profession as a newspaper correspon
dent. His graphic descriptions of
some of the counties in California
have been compiled from the columns
of the Bulletin and published in
pamphlet form. His Oregon letters
deserve to be likewise preserved, and
we hope to see a move made in this
direction, provided the Bulletin man
agers will consent thereto. Mr.
Hawley continues to make hosts of
friends for himself and the able pa
per he represents.
BEACH GOLD MINING.
Quite a number of beach claims
are successfully worked, on the west
ern border of Benton county. Some
of them, with the indifferent mode
now in use for saving gold. pajT very
well ; many of them would be fabu
lously rich, if some more perfect
means of saving fine gold could be
All along our coast line, from the
northern to the extreme southern line
of our county, black sand is found in
almost inexhaustible quantities, which
is wonderfully rich in fine, pure gold,
but which is exceedingly difficult,
and with present appliances almost
impossible, to save. The following,
clipped from an exchange, if true,
might be of incalculable benefit to
our coast miners, Benton county, and
the state at large :
A sample of black sand, such as is usually
found in connection with gold, and of which
there are thousands upon thousands of tons
on our beach, generally supposed" by our
miners to lie next to worthless, was for
warded to Edison, the great inventor. A
careful analysis by some newly discovered
method of Edison's, shows the apparently
worthless sand to contain gold to the amount
of C52 per ton. What the new process is,
is not stated, but if it can be made to work
there is gold enough in the sand on the
ocean beach that can be taken out sufficient
to pay the national debt.
INCIDENTS OF UTT WAR,
Erom eastern exchanges we have
full accounts of the capture and final
rescue of Mrs. Meeker, Miss Meeker,
and Mrs. Price and her two children.
Mrs. Meeker was wounded, and be
ing an aged person bus not fullv re
covered. While a captive at Chief
Douglass' camp, Mrs. Meeker says :
Many of the squaws looked very sorrowful,
as if some great calamity were about to hap
pen ; others were not kind to me, and Fred
die Douglass, the chief's son, whom I had ta
ken into my house at the agency and wash
ed and taught and doctored and nursed and
made Irealthy, came to me in my captivity
and mocked me worse than all the rest.
The Douglass blood was in him, and he was
bad. He said I was a bad squaw, an old
white squaw. He tried to steal the old wild
cat skin that I slept on, and he stole my
hankerchief while I was asleep and jeered me
during my imprisonment.
Miss Josephine Meeker was threatened
with death, but she told her captors that
she feared neither indians nor bullets. Her
escape wss a narrow one. She is a blonde,
with blue eyes and light hair and is tall in
stature, and vivacious in manner and con
versation. She was a teacher at the agency
and a great favorite among the indians. She
taught the boy of Chief Douglass, and had
half a dozen offers of marriage from the Ute
braves during her captivity. Her quick wit
and knowledge of the language undoubtedly
saved her life.

lamette. Senator Slater.
In the Bulletin of the 18th inst..
we find a very interesting and well
written letter on " Central Oregon,"
especially relating to Corvallis and
Benton county, which we will take
great pleasure in reproducing in the
Gazette, perhaps next week. In
this, as in all of his letters, he deals in
"Old Hill." of the Salinas (Cal.) Index,
gets off the following in regard to editorial
deadheading : "One of the beauties and
charms of an editor's life is his deadheading
it on all occasions. No one who has ever
tasted of the sweets of that bliss can begin
to take in its glory and its happiness. He
does $100 worth of advertising for a railroad,
gets a 'pass' for a year, and rides 25 worth,
and then he is looked upon as a deadhead,
or a halfblown 'dead beat ' He 'puffs' a
theatre or concert troupe 10 worth and
gets 1 in 'complimentaries,' and is thus
passed in 'free.' If the hall is crowded he is
begrudged the room he occupies for if the
complimentaries were paving tickets the
tronpe would be so much in pocket. He
blows and puffs a chnrch festival free to any
desired extent, and does the poster printing
at half rates, and rarely gets a thank yon'
for it. It goes in as part of his duty as an
editor. He does more work gratiuitously
for the community than all the rest of the
population, and gets cursed for it all ; but a
man who donates a dollar for the Fourth of
July, base ball club or church, is gratefully
remembered. Oh, it is a sweet thing to be
an editor. He passes 'free,' you know.
The wheat crop of the.Coquille valley
this year is estimated at 25,000 bushels
last year is was about 18,000.
Lo wallis, a notorious Indian horse thief
as arrested last week, but escaped from
his captors when within a mile of Colfax,
where it was proposed to confine him.
The various blue ribbon temperance socie
ties organized througtout the Willamette
valley by Dr. J. W Watts, about a year ago
are still flourishing.
Wm. AnderSon left his cabin on the Lewis
place, in Washington county, the other day
to do some ditching, and when he returned
he found a $40 watch missing.

AN ARRAY OF QUESTIONS FOR HARD
FANNERS TO ANSWER.
Friend Demo-Republicrats, as your hard
money partnership concern has a great deal
to say about our Greenbuck " lunacy," " fi
at craziness," " dishonest money," etc., we
presume you will heartily undertake the
missionary work of enlightening us upon a
few of the points in dispute. " Come let
us reason together," and you do all the talk
ing, and see whether you can give a reason
for the faith that is in you. If you can not,
you had better join the " Greenback craze."
You should not vcte the hard times ticket
unless you can give good rersous for so do
ing. Is there anv authority, higher than the
the laws which create dollars, pounds,
marks, francs, crowns, plasters, etc. , or are
they created solely by the fiat or decree of
laws, and does not the law-making power of
each nation select such materials as it pleases
upon which it stamps dollars, pounds,
francs, etc., etc. 1 Is it not cne of the most
important duties of every ctovernment to
provide an available, suitable and ample cir
culating money of account for the use of
the people, and should not this money be
kept steady in its amount per capita, in or
der to not cause fluctuations in the prices of
property ? If so, how can it be done if the
money so provided be exportable, or worse
yet, if three fourths of the money be not
exportable, but based on the remaining one
fourth which is exportable, so that a slight
foreign demand for coin cauees not only a
shrinkage of money with r.s of the amount
exported, but three times as much more of
the non-exportable money which was based
upon it ? As any money stamped upon sub
stances possessing a market value is subject
to this vital defect, would it not be better
to have no exportable money, and base our
sole issue of money (stamped upon valueless
materials) upon the same basis which the
United States bonds have, viz : the nation
and all there is in it 1
If the law can make 17 cents worth of
nickel an " honest dollar," why. can not the
same law make 75 cents worth of silver an
"honest dollar"? Does not the price or
value of all metals, gold and silver included,
fluctuate according to the supply and de
mand ? Does not the price of the raw gold
metal go up and down ? If so, how can it
be a standard of values ? As gold is known
to be growing scarcer, the world over, and
the demand for it is vastly increasing, and
it is being exported from one country to an
other, vainly trying to fill the demand, will
not every country in turn, unless it demon
etises gold, experience great inflation .and
contraction in the currency based upon this
metal, and consequently in prices, causing
periodical crashes ? Would not a constitu
tionally Ii:ite i ime of leg tender United
States U:m, having no interest, (genuine
greenback.3) t : letter home currency, not
being subject U foreign influences, we using
no coin for either domestic or foreign trade,
but shipping abroad bullion bars, which are
fully a-- a -ceptable abroad as coin, as pro
duct f-T sale the same as other metals or
What proportion of all the gold produced
is used f-.r coins, and what would it all be
worth prr pound if it were demonetised the
world over, and thrown npon the market
upon its merits as a metal for ornamental
uses ? (It bM no practical uses, has it ? )
Would not g;!d be rather too cheap to be
prised about that time ? Has it the intrin
sic value or usefulness of iron? If not as
useful as iron, and Benjamin Franklin says
it is not, what right has the government to
give it by statute a high price and make it
tne aruiier : tae v.-.iues ot all other tningsr
Has any nation a right to issue paper notes
promi'.j.-i; to pay com to an amount above
the coin it has in actual possession in its
treasury ? If so, what ratio shall be main
tained ; three in paper to one in coin, as we
now have, or live or ten to one and who
shall have the power to decide the ques
tion .' it no nation has a right to issue
more paper than she has coin, what use is
there in using paper at all ? Are not all pa
per iSttjflbkMed on coin intended to be an
inflationJHIr if issued dollar for dollar in
the UnnflHP&tes, with a population of 59.
000,000 aJHnly 000, 000 in coin could
be acquired and placed in the treasury
must we limit our currencv to the ruinous
sum of $1 per capita for such a silly reason ?
Has not our treasury many times had even
less coin than that on hand ?
What mre reason is there that the Uni
ted States should keep money idle in a box,
while it note is out, than for a citizen to do
so ? The citizen's note is proven to be good
by his property statement, and his reputa
tion for honesty. Why is not a nation's
ni-te the same? Why keep bonds in the
tMnsury to secure bankers' notes any more
tiian chattel mortgages to secure farmers
notes, when neither are legal tender ? Why
doc one draw interest and the other pay in
terest? You say it makes no difference how scarce
money is that we can buy everything so
much cheaper, etc. Are you not then com
pelled to admit the converse proposition
that it makes no difference how plenty
money is it will take more of it to buy
everything. If it makes no difference, why
does the bank ring resist the people who
wish to have as much as we once had ? Who
asked to have the amount diminished ? If
it make3 no difference, let us try more
awhile. Answer the following question and
then tell us whethe; it makes any difference
whether money is plenty or scarce. Must
not every person who uses money accumu
late the amount necsssary for his purpose
before he uses it ? He may be able to ac
quire money but very slowly, and particu
ly so when money is scarce : still he cannot
pay his taxes, buy a horse, or a suit of
clothes, or make a payment on the impend
ing mortgage on his home, or make a jour
ney, or do any of the million things requir
ing the use of money, till he does accumu
late the necessary amount for the purpose
in view. Must not a vast amount ot money
be thus necessarily idle ? If the currency
is limited, who can prevent wealthy and
wary persons from hoarding it all, to gain
by its appreciation, or in fear of investing
it when no investment pays ? Can a hun
dred men accumulate and use the same
money at the same time ? If a few are sup
plied, must not tne others go without?
Need this be so ? Are not many persons
who have large sums of money, keeping it
out of circulation ? Mr. Republican, may
they not be waiting to buy your farm, when
it is sold under the hammer for less than it
is worth? W. A Wells.

Nakbow Escape. The Salem Daily Talk
of the 22nd inst,. says : Yesterday afternoon,
late, when the steamer Occident, Capt. Miles
Bell in command, was coming down the riv
er, and when just below Eola, a man was
seen clinging to a snag in the river. Captain
Bell stopped the steamer and ordered a boat
to be lowreed to go to the rescue of the man.
When-taken aboard the Occident, the man
gave his name as Ross and said that he and
another man named John Clime had been
cutting wood for Rone .an Bros. They start
ed to come down to Salem in a skiff yester
day and when this side of Eola the skiff
struct a snag, capsizing and throwing the
men into the water. Ross upon coming to
the top of the water caught hold of the snag
where he was found and could have held on
but a short time longer as he had been in the
water several hours and was nearly exhausted.
Cline chmed upon the skiff and floated down
stream. He was rescued by Hank Sterling
on the Polk county side of the river just
above the city.

D. Ransom, Son tc Co. : For the benefit of all
troubled with Scrofula or Impure Blood in their
systems, I hereby recommend King of the Blood.
I have been troubled with Scrofula for the past ten
years, which so affected my eyes that I was com
pletely blind for six months. I was recommended
to try King of the Bloo-1, which has proved n great
blessing to me, as it has completely cured me, and
I cheerfully recommend it to all troubled as I have
been. Yours truly,

Is a ptlrely vegetable bitter and powerful
tome, and is warranted a speedv and cer
tain cure for Fever and Ague, Chills and
Fever, Intermittent or Chill Fever, Re
mittent Fever, Dumb Ague, Periodical
or Bilious Fever, and all malarial dis
orders. Tn miasmatic districts, the rapid,
pulse, coated tongue, thirst, lassitude, loss of
appetite, pain in the back and loins, and cold
ness of the spine and extremities, are only
premonitions of severer symptoms which:'
terminate in the ague paroxysm, succeeded
by high fever and profuse perspiration.
It is a startling fact, that quinine, arsenic
and other poisonous minerals form the basis'
of most of the " F.ever and Ague Prepara
tions,' "Specifics," "Syrups," and "Ton-"
ics," in the market. The preparations made
from these mineral poisons, although they
are palatable, and may break the chill, do'
not cure, but leave the malarial and their
own drug poison in the system, producing
quinism, dizziness, ringing in the ears, head-'
ache, vertigo, and other disorders more for-'
nridable than the disease they were intended
to cure. AVer's Ague Cure thoroughly
eradicates these noxious poisons from the
system, and always cures the severest cases.
It contains no quinine, mineral, or any thing:
that could injure the most delicate patient;
and its crowning excellence, above its cer
tainty to cure, is that it leaves the system a'
free from disease as before the attack.
For Liver Complaints, Aran's Aavtf
Cure, by direct action on the liver and bil
iary apparatus, drives out the poisons which"
produce these complaints, and stimulates the
system to a vigorous, healthy condition.
