A NEW ENTERPRISE.
Mr. Ed. M. Belknap, of Portland,
ih in the city making arrangements
to start the Corvallis Plow and Agri
cultural Manufacturing Company.
We take no little pride in announc
ing that this company have leased
the G-aylord property, corner of 3rd
and Jackson streets, in this city, for
five years. A part of their mat-bin
ery is already here, and more will
soon follow. The building is to be
refitted, and a new 40 horse power
engine will be placed in it to run the
machinery of the business.
John C. Kitton, Stephen E. Bel
knap and Edward M. Belknap are
the incorporators of this company
and own the capital stock of $40,000,
These gentlemen are from Michigan,
and have had experience in the busi
iress which they will build up in our
city. Tiiis company will operate a
foundry, machine shop and plow
factory, using.Oregon iron and wood,
which Mr. Belknap informs us are
both of superior quality.
We welcome these gentlemen to
onr- midst, and sincerely hope and
believe that they will sueceed in th'.s
new undertaking. Alter being on
this coast for two years, and having
had ample opportunity to examine
different localities, and the facilities
afforded for their business, they un
hesitatingly selected our city in pref
erence to all others, although strong
inducements have been offered them
by way of land and money to locate
elsewhere. Soon we shall hear the
busy wheels of industry, and see the
ever increasing stream of traffic
flowing to and from this manufac
tory. Let all our citizens encourage
this enterprise in a proper manner,
and soon other factories will be es
tablished that will use much of our
raw material, of which we have such
an abundance at home, furnishing
employment to our laborers, and a
better market for our producers.
The greatest humbug of tho age
lias come to a sudden inglorious de
mise. The Fusionists of Maine un
dertook to steal the whole machinery
of civil government in that State,
and they not only attempted, but
they actually did it. When, how
ever, this was accomplished they
found they had a much larger ele
phant on their hands than they had
bargained for; in short, the monster
was too heavy for them to hold onto,
their- muscels were weakened from
a previous masterly inactivity, and
consequently their grip loosened and
the entire elephantic structure fell in
ar mass of' shapeless and unrecogniza
ble ruins. To be candid, the Fusion
ist never had any standing at law, in
-"equity or public opinion, outside of
a few political fanatics. The Supreme
Court of the State decided every
.proposition against them, and as a
itilt the whole affair went to pieces.
The Fusionists themselves ought to
be,if they are not,thoroughly ashamed
of themselves They will be arraign
ed before the bar of public opinion,
all over tho country, and promptly
condemned for their dastardly at
tempt to overthrow free institutions,
and curses like chickens will come
me to roost on the heads of those
so -determiuedly have striven to
thwart the will of the people. The
Fusion Legislature has adjourned to
the first Wednesday of August next,
and have retired to private life.
Fusionist Governor Smith has evi
dently got tired of playing Governor
and has gone home ; and Fusionist
Secretary of State, Sawyer, has proox
ised to return the valuation books to
the Secretary.of State, and will also
retire to his home, and the ignominy
which will so justly follow him.
the Republicans- of Maine are to

MR. SPROUL'S OPEN LETTER.
As a letter writer Representative
Sproul, elected on the Fusion ticket
in Maine, is an entire success. He
reads Pillsbury a moral lecture that
is really ref reshing. His open letter
taken from the Daily Statesman, of
the 30th ultimo has the clear ringing
tones of an honest man and; patriot.
One of the Fusion members elected
to the Maine Legislature, having re
ceived a letter from the patriotic
Pillsbury, who is supposed to be the
brilliant genius who conceived the
most original ideas of the conspiracy
to steal the Slate, asking him to
" assist" in holding the stolen proper
ty, replies in tn open letter through
the Bangor Whig and Courier. In
the letter, which is addressed to Eben
F. Pillsbury, of the Maine Standaid,
and signed by E. Sproul, representa
tive elect from Veazie, in which the
following vigorous passage, whicti
demolishes at a blow the blatheiskite
Pillsbury and the hypocrite Garce
" I was very much astonished to
think that you could countenance
any such proceedings in the Govern
or and Council of this year, when
only last year you took such decided
stand against the suspicion of Gov
ernor Connor and Council wrongful
ly counting out the present Fusion
majority in the legislature. Now,
instead of seeing you denounce it in
the strong and vigorous language
you usually employ, in your paper
you appear entirely in favor of or
ganizing a legislature of the minority
instead of the majority which the
people had fairly chosen, and for this
yon ask my aid in distributing the
spoils of such villainy. Though I
was elected on an opposition ticket,
and intended to support the regular
nominees of my party, yet, when the
members elect are counted out on
pretences which are totally false, or
exist at best only in the malicious
ignorance of the perpetrators ; when
such ad vantages were taken of defec
tive blanks, sent out for this very
purpose by the constituted authori
ties, so that returns were cast out
from this very cause ; when some
laws were very strongly enforced,
and others on the same subject were
nulified, by which trival errors could
have been readily corrected ; when,
five of our largest cities, containing
one-seventh of our inhabitants and
one-1'ourth ot our wealth, were dis
franchised,and many smaller towns
treated even worse by those whom
they had once repudiated at the polls,
then no longer can a man with one
drop of blood of a Revolutionary
father in his veins lend his favor and,
much less, his influence to support
and aid such systematic villainy."

CENTRAL EASTERN OREGON YAQUINA

Mr. Editor Since Eastern Ore
gon stands before the world' the
greatest wheat producing country,
rivalling the famed Willamette in
yield per acre and excelling every
known locality in quality, and while
capital is flowing freely to this new
section so rich in products the de
mand forgprhich is world wide, capital
to facilitate transportation and in
crease the golden harvest, are we
citizens of jyjentra! Oregon fully alive
to the situation we occupy? Let us
see ; allowing Portland, 120 miles
from- the sea, to be the terminal
point for a railroad to Eastern Ore
gon, and Yaquina Bay (improved by
an appropriation this session of Con
gress) the terminus of the Willam
ette S'alley and' Coast R. R. Three
hundred miles by the latter road
takes you 100 miles east of Prineville,
through Corvallis, Albany and Leba
non, through the very center of Ore
gon's oldest settled and richest valley
connecting all that vast section of
county around Prineville with a sea
port whereonlyone handlingof freight
from the cars to the shijis will be re
quired. Ihere is no railroad even
talked of now reaching this part of
Eastern (Central) Oregon from Port
land; but suppose there was, the dis
tance from Prineville via. Columbia
river to Portland would be greater (at
least 200 miles), and when the pro
ducts of that country were placed on
wharves of the " maritime city,
Wkstside of course, there is just
TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY-ONE
miles of water carriage to make be
fore a point opposite Yaquina Bay is
reached. It must be apparent to the
most careless observer that financial
ly the routes present a still greater
difference ; the W. V. and C. R. R.
runs first through a fertile, healthy
mountain district, thence across the
thickly settled, wealthy Willamette
vallev ; thence through the Cascade
range, fertile and attractive out, into
the sage brush plains of Eastern
(Central) Oregon, plains no longer
classed as grazing lands, but plains
producing the finest yield of golden
wheat, developing along its line vast
natural resources. How is it with
the Columbia river route? It must
follow the river, expensive at every
step, so narrow in places as to admit
of only one roadbed, a dangerous
owership for the people to consider,
parallel, with a navigable river com
peting for the trade. Passing in its
long line, through no agricultural
region, near no thriving towns, finally
reaching a point 120 mile from the
sea with uncertain navigation winter
and summer. Eastern (Central)
Oregon, growing rapidly in popula
tion and wealth, needs a reliable line
of communication, one free from all
natural obstacles, particularly such
as are uncontrolable;. the general gov
ernmeut is interested in securing i
short certain route to this part of
Oregon, a growing empire in itself.
The people of that section are to-day
laboring under many disadvantages.

GROUNDS CF THE CONTEST OF FRANK
Among late dispatches to the Dai
ly Oregonian, we find the following:
Objections to probate of the late
Frank Leslie will were filed yester
day by his two sons, Alfred and Hen
ry. Henry, who calls himself Frank
Leslie, Jr. avers that the making of
the will was caused by fraud and
circumvention and undue influence
practiced against decedent by the per
son named as executrix in the will,
whose maiden name was Marion Flor
ence Follen otherwise known as Mrs.
Squires; otherwise known as Mrs.
Frank Leslie ; that such person was
not, at tire death of Frank Leslie, nor
at any time the wile of Frank Leslie;
that at the time he executed the will,
if he did. execute it, he was insane
" Frank Leslie" was not his real
name. It was Henry Carter. He
was of English birth, and aged fifty-
eight years, at the time ot his
from Portland to
Prineville. If the press of Portland
can encourage the Oregon Navigation
Company in building railroads to the
small valleys on either side of the
Columbia to secure trade, how much
ought we to do that all these points
of practicability and economy may
be realized ? If the Willamette val
ley expects to reap anyof the bene
fits of commerce sure to follow the
development of Eastern (Central)
Oregon, she must do as Portland is
doing, work, work, work. Keep the
eyes of the public on the picture ; we
must not Bit idly by and see these
golden opportunities lost; that tide in
the affairs of men is nearly full which
leads on to prosperity. Cembined,
intelligent effort is required. Lead
ing papers and prominent men should
present this important subject, and
urgently press it on the attention of
Congress. R. A. B.
Newport, Jan. 27, 1880.
Untrue. The Sunday Welcome,
of Feb. 1st, says that "Corvallis
people are praying for $240,000 to
build a railroad to Yaquina Bay."
This statement is absolutely false. A
paper 'that sports such a moral name,
ought to be ashamed; of such lying.
The DeLessep's canal scheme will
fail, it is thought, for the reason tlfttt
it win tane $i&,uuu,uuu. to pay intei
est and yearly expenses, while it
estimated that it will only pay und
favorableaiiiiinstances $9000,000.. j
The first passenger train that ever came
into Corvallis, reached our city at 9:30 p. m.
Jan. 28. Among the passengers from Port
land were Hon. J. N. Dolph, vice President
of the Westrn Oregon road ; Paul Schulze,
land agrent ; T. DeClarke, superintendent of
construction ; Harry Habbersett, road mas
ter, and an Oregonian correspondent. The
train was under the charge of Conductor A
K. Colburn, Mr. Jennings handling the
throttle to Independence, and Jack Evans
from Independence to this city.
A large ceowd, numbering about eight
hundred, including many ladies, awaited
the arrival of the train at the depot,
about half a mile from the center of
town. The house of Dr. Bailey in the
northern portion of the city was brilliantly
illuminated. A loud cheer went up from
the crowd as the train pulled up to the de
pot. Messrs. Dolph arid Schulze were met
by a committee and escorted to the city
hall. Here more than half the inhabitants
of the citv were assembled. After a stir
ring piece by the band, Dr. Bailey called
the meeting to order, and introduced Judge
jr. A. Chenoweth, who addressed Air. JJotph
as follows :
JUDGE CHEXOW'ETH'S SPEECH
Mt . Vice President Dolph : The people of
Corvallis desire to congratulate you on the
completion of this great enterorise. To the
people of Benton county this works the
most important era in ner existence. lhis
is a step from her rudimental existence to
ward a higher condition in civilization.
There was a time when existence, com
fort and refined enjoyment were attainable
without railroads. But that period in the
inarch of improvement is passed. The
completion of this road opens to Benton
county a new era in her unfolding. Oregon
has been considered a slow coach, and from
her slow development many have underval
ned her worth. The difficulties in the way
ot getting a population, ner remoteness trom
the over populated states and countries, and
the rough and frowning mountains standing
between us and them made immigration slow
and difficult. Added to this the small
stream of immigration setting in this di
rection was turnd aside in 184S by gleams of
golden sands in California, by means of
which the young Oregon " boom " came to
an untimely death. As often happens, the
unpretending merit of our lovely state gave
way ana was ignored ana slighted lor the
('.ashing glare of our more preteutious sister,
California. But solid merit will in time tell
and demonstrate its true worth. Ap
Though we have long waited for the iron
horse, yet this waiting has had some re
wards. The farmer has grazed his stock on
the nutritious and luxurious grasses in the
parks of our dear uncle until that treasure
is iully enjoyed and tuily exhausted, lhe
grain growing period having arrived railroads
are indispensable. It is only now that we
begin to see the vast capabilities of the web-
foot soil. But slow as we are we have no
trouble in noting progress. I am reminded
of an incident that occurred in 18(4 here at
Corvallis. A few of us got up a popular
demonstration in the interests or a railroad,
Our mass meeting was duly published. The
circuit court being in session a large collec
tion of citizens assembled at the court
house. The amount of sneers and taunts
from the knowing ones men that could see
ahead was considerable. To give respecta
bility to the meeting we invited the circuit
judge (who was both a gentleman aud a
scholar), to preside. JrJut no. He could not
make himself ridiculous by taking a part in
a farce. Besides he was conscientious and
could not eive his countenance to a matter
that any sober, well-balanced man knew was
impracticable and impossible. That Oregon
was not adapted to railroads, that the Wil
lamette valley never would produce enough
to load a train ot cars, and to taut ot a rail
road was simply absurd. This simply shows
how greatly our wisest aud best men under
rate. Only six years from that time the
money of our. German brethern placed the
iron horse upon the track. The farmers
went to work and soon long trains of cars
laden with golden cereals were coursing their
way down through .Linn and Marion coun
ties. Land rose from five to ten dollars per
acre, and trom ten to twenty and thirty dol
lars per acre.
But Uregon has mst begun to unfold her
self. We are as ignorant of what lies ahead
of us now as our circuit judge was in 1864.
On the completing of this road we may say
the first blow is struck on the west side.
These railroad men are like Moses. They
smite the rock and abundant fountains not
of water but bread and meat come forth.
W e hope shortlv to have a trunk line from
here to the Yaquina Bay over which our ce
reals will be shipped to the sea, and thence
to foreign ports. This movement is perhaps
in its infancy, but it will soon manifest its
strength, aud the Yaquina road will as
surely be built in the near future as that we
exist. We are on the eve of an eventful
epoch in the history of onr development and
natural growth. I can but counsel a little
patience -on the part of our people, and in a
short time we shall meet here under like
circumstances to start the first train over
this road to the seaboard.
But the lateness of the hour forbids our
dilating on the effects of this grand enter
prise. It is not saying too much to assert
that this is the first of a large number Of-
ranroacts mat -win soon center in this city.
Now that the road is done the question is
often asked who is the most benefited ? Of
course everybody is benefited. But there
is one class of citizens the farmers pecul
iarly benefited. To them it is more than
an empty compliment. It adds 50 per cent,
to their land in $20 pieces. To the mer
chant it may be only a source of comfort
and convenience. In one immeasurable re
spect the comforts are common to us all. it
places us in the grand procession of the
American people en route for the perf ectabil-
tty ot our race. We cease to breathe dead,.
stagnant atmosphere of the statu quo party.
We take step to the music of improvement,,

through great difficulties, requiring unusual
energy and perseverance. The incessant
rains and storms were not to be regarded.
The enterprise was crowded to a successful
completion. The great work is accomplish
ed. You are one of its, add in behalf of the
food people of Corvallis and Benton county,
bid you welcome. Cheers.
RESPONSE BY' HOK.- J. S. DOLPH.
Mr. Dolph responded as follows :
Judge Chenoxeeth and- Citizens of Benton
Cottntu: I exceedingly regret that the pres
ident of the company, Mr. Villard, or Mr.
Koehler, the manager, by whose energy the
construction of the railroad to Corvallis in
spite of the obstacles mentioned by you, are
not here to listen to and respond to your
very flattering address. But in behalf of
the men who had sufficient faith in the fu
ture of your state and the resources of your
county to turnisn money tor the construe
tion of the road, and of the president and
manager of the road, I thank yon for this
demonstration and complimentary address.
You have referred to the early history and
condition ot Uregon when the means of trans
portation were few and the principal occu
pation of the settlers was the pasturing of
their nocks on uncle bams domain, and
that the growth of the state had been slow
We were so far removed from the eastern
states and the great centers of population
that immigration to our state has been re
tarded. There are other causes besides
the gold excitement in California which have
tended to prevent a rapid increase in the
population of this valley. Western Oregon
has furnished from the beginning considera
ble proportion of the emigration to Eastern
Uregon, Idaho and vvashinton territories,
aun this is one reason why railroads and oth
er facilities for transportation have come
slowly. You have reason to congratulate
yourselves upon the completion of the rail
road to your city. As to whether it wrill
prove a profitable investment to its projec
tors may still be considered a problematical
question. So far as heretofore constructed
it has not been profitable. But you have a
road, a good road, laid with steel rails frem
St. Joseph to Corvallis, and when well bal
lasted will be the best road in Oreeon. and
equal to any on the Pacific coast. Whether
it is in advance of the demands of the coun
try or not, you may congratulate yourselves
that you have it Applause I congratulate
you also upon the the beginning of better
times, not only for Benton county, -but for
the whole state. Among the signs of in
creasing prosperity I will mention the pro
posed construction by the Oregon Bailway &
Navigation Co. of a standard gauge road
from Celilo to Wallula along the Columbia
river to connect with the Northern Pacific,
and one other standard gauge which may be
constructed to bring Oregon in connection
with the the railroad system of the United
States. It is significant for more reasons
than one. It gives greater transportation
facilities to the Columbia river valley, and
directs the commerce of the fertile region of
Eatsern Oregon and Washington territory
towards Portland, the metropolis of the
state, and thus indirectly benefits Benton
county and the whole state, for each portion
is interested in the development of every
other portion. I will mention also the
construction of two hundred miles of the
Northern Pacific from Snake river eastward
into the wheat growing' regions of Washing
ton and Idaho. The money expended in the
construction of these roads will give a stim
ulus to all business enterprises of the state
and thus increase the general prosperity;
and the construction of the fifty miles of the
west side road during the past season marks
the beginning of a new era in Oregon's prog
ress. Wlule Judge Chenoweth was speaking of
the early history of Oregon, I contrasted the
progress of this state with that of Michigan.
I spent the winter of 1857 in Jackson county
in that state, in a portion of a county that
had been settled twenty years previously.
By their proxemity to the older settled por
tions of'this country and the early construc
tion of a line of railroad extending through
the state, in had every appearance of an old
settled country, farms being highly cultiva
ted and having good buildings and fine or
chards, and to-day the southern part of that
state is traversed by three through lines from
east to west, with numerous intersecting
lines. You said that farmers were benefited
more than any other class by railroads. I
hardly think so. It is true that there land
will be appreciated, and production stimula
ted, and thus they will be greatly benefited.
But everj other enterprise is dependent on
their labor. Labor is the source of wealth.
If these fertile plains had lain here idle and
uncultivated as they were when occupied by
Indians, your beautiful city of Corvallis
would not have had an existence. If labor
had not produced the wealth of the rich Wil
lamette valby, Portland, (the metropolis of
the state,) of which we all are justly proud,
would never have been built. Therefore, I
say after all, whatever increases the pros
perity of the farmer, proportionately in
creases the prosperity of every other class.
Every effort should be made to secure cheap
transportation for the produce of farmers as
a means of increasing the general prosperity
of the country.
As a striking contrast to the want of faith
of the judge mentioned by Mr. Chenoweth
as having refused to preside at the railroad
meeting in 1864, I will mention the govern
or of New York, who had the faith and fore
sight to project the Erie canal, which made
.New York the "Empire State" and the city
of New York the metropolis of the United
States. Though the Erie canal has been in
a great measure superseded by the railroad
system of the state, the foresight of DeWitt
Clinton marks him as oue of the wisest men
of his day.
Your allusion to an incident of 1864 re
minds me of another that happened the same
year. In that year 1 came to your city and
earned off a young lady who resided here,
and have kept her away ever since, and on
that account especially 1 have had a warm
spot in my heart for Corvallis and Benton
county. fLaughter and applause. It took
me on that occasion two days to come toJ
Corvallis and two days to return, lo-day
we left Portland at 2 p. m. and reached Cor
vallis at half-past 9 p.m.
Judge Chenoweth retered to the tact that
the people of Corvallis hope that your city
will become the center of a railroad system,
and that there would soon be constructed a
trunk line to Yaauina Bay. There seems to
be an impression that a feeling of jealousy
exists in Portland toward Corvallis. This is
a mistaken impression. We people of Port
land would heartily rejoice in the advance
ment of the interests of Benton county,
knowiiicr that vonr prosperity is also ours,
and we nail with pleasure every new facility
for cheap transportation.
In conclusion allow me again to congratu
late you on the completion of this enterprise"
which connects von witn the metropolis ot
the state and the head ot ship navigation,

for Restoring gray hair to its
natural vitality and color.
It is a most agreeable dressing, -which
is at once harmless and effectual, for pre
serving the hair. It restores, with the
gloss and freshness' of youth, faded or grayr
light, and red hair, to a rich brown, or deep
black, as may be desired. By its use tliiit
hair is thickened, and baldness often--though
not always cured. It checks falling'
of the hair immediately, and causes a new
growth in all cases where the glands are
not decayed; ivliile to brashy, weak, or
otherwise diseased hair, it imparts vitality
and strength, and renders it pliable.
The Vigor cleanses the scalp, cures ami
prevents the formation of dandruff'; andr
by its cooling, stimulating, and soothing:
properties, it heals most if not all of the
humors and diseases peculiar to the scalp,
keeping it cool, clean, and soft, under
which conditions diseases of the scalp and,
hair are impossible.
As a Dressing for Ladies' Hair,.
The Vigor is incomparable. It is color
less, contains neither oil not dye, and will
not soil white cambric. It imparts an
agreeable and lasting perfume, and as an
article for the toilet Mr is economical and
unsurpassed in its excellence.
