THE YAQUINA RAILROAD.
The Philomath Crucible of the
15th inst., attempts a feeble reply to
his own article, as copied into the
Gazette of a former issue. The
editor does not have the manliness
to correct his former erroneous and
untruthful statements, but simply
whines because the Gazette u used
so many capitals," finds fault because
of our earnestness and zeal on the
railroad question, and says, "that we"
(the Crucible) " have not got warm
ed up to our work yet." Surely it is
time. The railroad is everything to
Philomath the one great need of that
portion of our county, and yet the
editor of that paper, is " not warmed
up to his work," but chooses to growl
and snarl because the Gazette ex
hibits warmth on the subject. The
writer says, " we will give as much
to the railroad as the Gazette will
do." It is true, the Gazette has not
given very much, in dollars and cents,
toward the railroad, but it has given
about thirteen years of persistent, un
tiring labor, and, without egotism, we
think we can claim that these years
of labor have not been in vain. We
aie content to let the people of Ben
ton countv decide as to the matter of
real friendship to the road, and the
best interests of the people. We
repel the insinuation that the Ga
zette is the organ, of the railroad to
the detriment of the people. Out
position, at this point, is too well
understood by our readers for us to
take time in bandying words with a
cotemporary that has "not warmed
up to the work." The twattle about
"all connected with the Crucible be
ing Republican and the editor being
a veteran," has nothing to do with
the railroad. This rises above all
party. AVe want the railroad, and
the people of Benton county want
the same, and it will be built, des
pile of croakers and carpers.
As a sample of the friendship, as
well-as the honesty and fairness of
the Crucible, we will make a little
quotation from the article referred to,
as follows: "As to the time for the
completion of the road, we wish to
add that a year of as good weather
as we are now having ought to be
enough ; and this weather seems good
enough to admit of work by the
Westside men. But nothing was
done last summer. Will the Gazette
tell the people why ?"
Xone so blind as those who will
" Where ignorance is bliss,
Tis folly to be wise."
With all our charity for a weak
brother, we can scarcely believe that
the above is a " sin of ignorance. "
There is not a schoolboy in Benton
county, we opine, that does not know
the reason why the work was delayed,
last summer. It was, to make a long
stcdjy short, the result of just such
croakers as the editor of the Crucible
has shown, and is showing himself to
be. Vide tlie article already refer
red to by the Gazette, also a com
munication inhe issue of the 16th
inst., signed " Junius Brntus." Well
may those laboring for the best in
terests of the county the railroad
exclaim, save us fronj. such friendship.

work of grading was pushed with
vigor, until the funds and all resources
of the company were exhausted, and
the weather became too bad for fur
ther work the grading stopping a
little short of the ten mile stake. It
was estimated that $35,000 would
purchase the iron and rolling stock,
narrow gauge, for the first ten mile
section. The grade, for good and
sufficient reasons, was afterwards
changed to standard gauge. The
35,000 weresubscribed 'notes given
for the payment within a certain
time. Some of the notes were prompt
ly paid but the croakers commenced
their work and many refused to
pay their notes unless legally com
pelled to do so. All This consumed
time. Finally the company, as an
indication of -good faith on their part,
borrowed the balance of the money,
and ordered the iron, &c. But in
consequence of the unavoidable de
lay, it did not arrive at Portland, last
season, until the river had become
too low to allow its transportation to
Corvallis. Much of it still lies jn
Portland, but will be shipped hither
in time to be laid early this season.
Here the matter rests and these are
the reasons for its present status. Is
this an answer to the reason why?
We leave it for candid, thinking,
unprejudiced public to say where
the blame properly rests ? Had those
notes been promptly paid, as stipu
lated, and the grading completed,
the first ten miles would been
completed, last summer, and Philo
math would be enjoying a degree of
prosperity unprecedented by any
town in Oregon, according to its pop
ulation. Our readers can draw their
own inferences as to the friendship of
the Crucible to the railroad.

THREE CHEERS FOR THE WESTSIDE!
A NEW ERA IN BENTCN.
Last Monday afternoon the first
construction train of the Oregon Cen
tral railroad company entered the
corporate limits of the " Heart of the
Valley." For several days our citi
zens had been on tiptoe about this
grand event. Yor twenty - seven
years we have been " waiting and
watching " for the iron horse. Dur
ing all that time we have never
doubled that Corvallis would be a
railroad center. All we lack, now,
to complete our long cherished hopes
and fondest anticipations is, the com
pletion of (he Yaquina road, forming
a junction, as it will, with the West
side road. Its completion is as cer
tain as anything can be, in this
world, that has not already trans
pired. Last Tuesday Mr. R. Koehler,
Vice President, and Mr. J. Brandt,
jr.. Superintendent, of the O. C. R.
R., came up and examined tiie road.
Of course the road is not in condi
tion to. allow fast time, but will be
improved as fast as possible. We
congratulate the company upon the
success of their enterprise, and upon
the energy and perseverance display
ed in pushing the work forward un
der the most adverse circumstances.
Mr. Koehler said he intended to cornv
plete the road to Uorvallis this sea
son, and he has made his words
good. We congratulate our citizens,
and the westside counties, upon the
good fortune that has befallen them
in 8ecuiing another outlet to market.
Three cheers for the Westside road !

" THE SPIRITCF PORTLAND."
"Portland is a maratime city, although 150
miles from the ocean. The annual river and
harbor improvements which open the way
for deeper ships, increase the commerce of
this port." Geo. H. Atkinson in Daily
Oregonian, Jan. 1, 1880.
Farmers of Central Oregon, this is my text.
What have you given to make Portland a
maratime city ? Since 1842 the profit de
rived f rmt yoar toil and labor has gone to
make I'ortland what it is. Yxm built the
first river boats, and gave capital to open
up the Columbia river trade. You have
begged and voted annually money to open a.
thoroughfare to and from that city, you
asked and obtained a subsidy for a railroad
and gave it to the East side company, and
have been paying 40c per ton on every
pound of freight going and coming on that
road, simply because the wharves of Port
land happened to be on the West side of the
Willamette ; yon ttave $200,000 of a sacred
fund to find relief from the burdens imposed
by monopolies ; you have encouraged and
built up the great papers of this maritime
city, and to what end ? For years Central
Oregon has been working against the spirit
of Portland, for another outlet, one free
from ice, and one nearer and cheaper, on the
seaboard. In 1876, Wm. Reid, secretary of
the Portland Board of Trade, used his in
fluence against State aid for the construc
tion of the W. V. & C. R. R. In 1878,
tieo years later, in his annual report as secre
tary, he referaed to the narrow gauge from
Corvallis to Philomath as a "feeder to the
AVestside," thus treating a subject of vital
interest with studied contempt.
Mr. McCormick, in his Almanac, has a
map of Oregon ; look at it. " Tront lake"
is noticed, but Yaquina Bay is ignored. A
place like Trout lake, only connected with
the ocean by a small stream in the winter
months, is carefully mapped out, while Ya
quina, a point of commerce since 1860, with
every acre of laud occupied and the certain
ty of railroad connection with Central Ore
gon, is omitted. I ask you, in all candor,
to be charitable, and yet say this is ignor
ance. Again, nearly two months have elapsed
since Capt. Wood, U. S. Ass't Engineer,
made his survey, and since Mr. Wallis
Nash's interesting letter on the merits of
that important survey was published and
promptly copied by the interior press. I
ask you, who subscribe to sustain the Port
laud press, if you have been able to find a
cheering line, a word even, to strengthen
your cause. You have no doubt seen re
commendations for aid to every other point
not in conflict with the wishes of the ' ' mar
itime city. " Please observe the AVillamette
Farmer of January 9th, a paper supported
by the real advocates of cheap transporta
tion, after complimenting its patrons in the
valley, this advice is offered, (farmers) need
then to work for mo e improvements on both
upper and lower Columbia and Willametre,
and select men to Congress who are capable of
working for these results successfully ." This
is all very good, though an appropiation for
the upper Willamette, with a railway on
either side, is not as necessary as in years of
yore ; but why not mention improvements
that are of public notoriety and urgently
demanded ? Why not give the members
sow in Congress, who are asking informa
tion, aid ami strength to carry out the
wishes of their constituent? ?
In view of this stubborn, persistent dis
position to treat us like children unable to
understand our own wants, I humbly sug
gest if it is not time to display a little inde
pendence, a trifle of that stern determina
tion needed some times to teach respect.
The press of Central Oregon has done nobly,
but aside from the Astorian ? you are clear
ly without friends. The right of petition
remains, and why not exercise it? Call
meetings in every town, select speakers,
rally the willing and anxious people and
discuss the question of an appropriation for
the improvement of Yaqnina Bay. This
will insure a railway saving 221 miles of
distance and 36 hours of time between the
interior and San Francisco, giving you-a har
bor accessible at all times, and sufficient for
all purposes of commerce local ami foreign,
a maritime point that will not require an
annual sum to get to it and another to get
away, a route giving choice of shipping,
lowering rates on present lines, and afford
ing permanent competition. Have a com
mittee, frame resolutions, setting forth all
and singular, the facts and interests of com
merce, give it wide pul licity, and furnish
our Senators and Representative reports.
They solicit your aid ; give it cheerfully,
truthfully and energetically, and if the press
of Portland, always ready to encourage eater
prise, fails to notice your struggle for the
right, and add an atom of its power or in
fluence in support of your claim, you will at
least learn and understand the "Spirit of
Portland." R. A. Benskll.

an Indian guide who once on the hazardous
trip, while swimming a stream, was carried
into the surf, and came near perishing in the
angry waves. This coast mail route is a
nuisance, as it is of no benefit to any one
except the contractor. There is nothing

there was it would never reach its destina

drenched with water.
The subject of a toll road from your
thriving city to this bay is being agitated
by our citizens. There is one thing sure,
we need a road to the interior, without pay
ing tribute to Yaquina Bay, and we are till
able to build it, and the county is unwilling
to Imild it. What is the next best ? It is
anything to get a road, with us. There are
more settlers to use this proposed road than
there are to use the Yaquina road north of
the bay, and there is as much to invite
pleasure seekers here as there is on the Ya
quina. Why then should we not have a
road ? We favor a toll road, if any company
will take the project in hand, as it is better
for traders to pay for a good road than to
go over such a one as the Yaquina road ia
now for nothing.

"headquarters." We are glad to still see
you, Mr. Editor, laboring for the early com
pletion of the Coast Railroad, and we will
hail with joy the happy moment it is consum
mated. It will help us here, as well as on
the Yaquina, and in fact it will benefit us
all more or less, the valley as well as the
coast country. When will it come?

A BEAUTIFUL ARTICLE FROM THE TEN OF
CALVIN B. MFCDONALT), THE TRIPLE
MAOPELAII OF THE OREGON PIONEERS.
When 1 returned to Salem in 1874- after
an absence of of seven years, no one was so
much missed and lamented as dear old fa
ther Waller. Formerly, when coming into
town from his suburban cottage, and feeling
the weariness of long drawn age, he useil to
make my office Lis resting place, and there
relate the incidents of primeval Oregon, aud
of his own missionary adventures. He had
somehow found out that I had been a scho
lastic protege of the Methodist son of thun
der, John P. Durbin, and his good old Meth
odiatical heart grew warm and tender and
loving towards the poor wandering pilgrim
who had missed his way somehow beyond
the house of the good Evangelist, and had
gone to sleep on the Hill of Difficulty, and
lost his priceless roll.
One bright morning in the opening Spring
time, we ill sorted.pair walknd out together
to th graves of the missionary pioneers,
where, like the Scottish antiquary in tlie
ancient Kirkyard, we pondered over the
mossy stones, while ho related the life histo
ries of the dead, brushed away the trust aud
read the pious inscriptions. One of them

The larks were singing gaily beneath the
melancholy and sweet faced eminence ; the
bluebirds were hopping about in the bud
ding oaks ; the frogs were croaking in the
adjacent marsh ; the old-fashioned cow bells
were heard on the adjacent hills, and the
dark, funeral firs stood around in the aspect
of speechless mourners. The old man sat
leaning against a tree in reflective contem
plation, repeating with unspeakable pa
thos " Ye living men come view the ground,
Where you must shortly lie !
I turned and walked away in a tumult of
passion. All there was in my nature of po
etic sentiment was stirred up and set on fire.
There, on the most religiously romantic spot
on the eastern shore of the Pacific Ocean, in
the most beautiful valley of the Western
World, in the immediate presence of the
pioneers, living and dead, who had lifted up
the sign of Christianity in the wilderness
and carried thither the burden of salvation,
and right at the gates of eternity, where
the first white mother and child from the
western shore of America had entered in,
the genius of the place was poetic, inspiring
and awful : and my own unregenerate heart
quivered and rose up and cried out, like the
dumb spirit under the dreadful exorcism of
