OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE STATE
OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COUNTY
Oorvaliis, Dec. 3., 1880.
TIil- instinct of fair play is deeply
settled in the Anglo Saxon race,
-lever the fiijlit is about, and
ever the cnmbat ants, the by-stand-rs
insist on a fair show for each side,
u if it be but a couple ot boys
ing a set-to on being let out of
hoof, one who "hit foul" would
id poo l chance of summary pun
iuni Irom bis mates. The same
pirit pervades all affairs. In a pies
lential campaign, lying, slander and
ery, even if successful for a mo
ment, wnak a terrible revenge on
the dastards who use such weapons.
We are all brought up to insist on
a fair fight and no favor. The natural
sense of justice among men demands
it, and gives a hearty support to the
sufferer from foul play.
Now, for years past only too
many we of the valley have been
Straggling to "overcome the controll
ing influence Of the City of Portland.''
These are the words of "Examiner"
in the Oregonian of the 8th inst.
As no sane man desires to close up
the only road he can use, long, diffi
cult and costly though it be, until he
has got another shorter and cheaper
ready to take its place, the neces
sity was laid upon us of opening
another route for our traffic. Thus
arose the interest in Yaquina Bay and
in the railroad to connect that port
with the valley ; and thus it came
about that the inhabitants of the
Valley, farmers, townspeople and
press, are now and have for years
been the active and strenuous advo
cates for the improvement of that
Bay and the construction of that
railroad. Naturally enough Portland
fought it, for the prosperity of that
city is an artificial growth, and de
pends on the maintenance of the toll
taking system by which it has grown
great. For, says "Examiner" again,
"The City of Portland is the com
mereial emporium of the whole State,
where all the large banks and all the
leading commercial firms, in every
branch of trade, are concentrated.
ing interests at such pointt and in
such a manner as to prevent their es.
tablishment in "our own territory ''
(A fine word that "control;" why
not say "absolute ownership " at
ewe, with all the rights up to heaven
above and down to hell btneath, as
the old law books give it?)
And so in our last Legii-iature Sen
ate bill 82 was introduced and sup
ported, to provide for interchange of
traffic by common carriers, and to
forest al a dishonest competion.
Whence sprang the bitterness with
which this bill was fought? A ru
mor had reached the O. R. & N. Co.,
that the failure of that bill would
give a deadly blow to the support
our railroad had won in the east.
They stopped not to ask whether the
Slate demanded it, they enquired not
if the crowing traffic of the State re
quired its protection, but Portland's
representatives, servile henchmen of
a selfish and grasping corporation,
were "solid" in their opposition
astonished Senators from these val
ley counties looked on to see Mr.
Hirseh become the mouth piece of at
tacks as false , as violent, which
stayed not at " "r? E Hogg and his
associates," but covered with their
flood of venomous vituperation some
of our most valued citizens. Tele
grains flew north, south and east to
poison public opinion in announcing
that the Oregon Pacific Railway had
been denounced in the Oregon Sen
ate as a fraud.
Once more; our valley citizens,
whose statements as to the wheat
production of our valley had been
impugned, met and undertook the
collection of return from our ware
housemen and millers, and sent the
results on for publication, proving
that their words were those of truth
and soberness, and that a firm reli
ance could be placed in those figures
on which the estimates of traffic of
the Oregon Pacific had been framed.
Not one day was lost ere the enemy
was at work. The Portland organ,
which had set itself the task from the
first, of using the very weight and
influence it gained from the subscrip
tion list in these parts, to check, to
sneer at, to destroy if it were but
possible, the enterprise on which our
hopes were placed, sent out its emis
saries, availed itself of the organiza
tion of the hostile corporations, and
with a courage worthy of a better
cause, staked its own reputation by
publishing returns, showing a wheat
production from these valley coun
ties of but three millions of centals,
Every bushel of wheat ;ind"other
product grown in the State is bought against the four millions three hun-
sold and shipped by Portland 1 a,.pa thousands reported bv the ware-
mci -chants." Nevermind now wheth
er that statement is true or false.
That is our adversaries' case ; the
words are theirs.
One more point they make. They
claim attention to "the established
flo.w of the internal commerce of
Oregon from North to South, and
South to North" under "the controll
ing power ot the existing transporta
tion lines in the Willamette Valley,
from which nine tenths of all the
freight and passenger business in
Western Oregon is derived." "Like
the standard gnage roads," they say,
"the narrow guage system will drain
everything in the direction of Port
There was one tribunal, one source
of power, not under Portland's influ
ence, to which we, as citizens of the
United Slates, had an inalienable
right to appeal. The cry of this
ValU y was loud enough to reach the
ear of Congress. With solid facts to
back them ; with natural advantages
that Portland could neither "control"
-nor destroy, but only mis-represent,
3,400 of the inhabitants of this Valley
sent on 'heir petition for the improve
ment of the entrance to Yaquina
Bay. All the officials of the State
supported it; the press of the
State gave their aid ; the repre
sentatives ot the State urged it with
all the strength their position lent
and Congress listened. Not to
the full was our prayer heard, but
et;ough was granted to effect some
solid good, and to prove an earnest
of '."omplete success.
How is this result described ? Lis
ten : "The political exigencies of
the presidential campaign enabled
the parties mentioned to obtain an
appropriation of $40,000."
Who are these parties? "T. E.
Hogg and his associates," say they.
And trlis the endeavor is made to
give our success the color of a job,
and to include as accomplices therein
all the earnest men who for years
past have striven to lift off the yoke
and break through the "control."
This is not all. Bitter experience
had taught us the kind of competi
tion the Yaquina road would have to
meet from that corporation which
itally announced its policy to be
the "exclusive control of the Colum
bia river," and meeting of any oppos
ANOTHER VOICE FROM THE EAST.
En. Gazette: I read with inter
est Dr. Vanderpool's letter which you
reprinted from the "Democrat" last
week. To us who are familiar with
the country, it seems strange for it to
be necessary at this late day to be
describing Crooked River Valley and
the rest of it. But as I have heard
that statements have been made that
this country is an uninhabited wilder
ness not susceptible of cultivation, it
seems ritjht for those who know what
a perfect fabrication, (I was going to
use a shorter word) that is, to unite
their testimony about it.
At present I am a resident of Sweet
Home Valley, which is as you know,
the last settlement with any consid
erable importance this side of the
Cascade Mountains. This valley has
a population of about three hundred
engaged in farming. We have in our
midst two stores, with blacksmith
shop and other necessary conven
iences, including church and school
privileges. The land is for the most
part good, producing all kinds of
grajn and also the best of vegetables
and fruit of all descriptions. The
farmers feel very much the need of
the Oregon Pacific Railroad, and are
hopefully waiting its completion, and
so soon as. completed the yield of
wheat, which is at present by no
means contemptible, will be very
greatly increase!. In this immediate
neighborhood the Company owns a
very large tract of valuable land.
Passing Eastward by the wagon
road across the Cascades, the road
immediately enters fir limber of the
most splendid quality and of a quan
tity that is inexhaustible. Forty
miles of mountain road and timber
land brings us to the great bunch
grass country of Eastern Oregon;
Bat before quitting the subject. Of the
road let me say that it is one of an al
most wonderful succe ssion of passes
through the mountains, leaving a
grade over which a two horse team
can easily draw a large load.
The first valleys you reach on the
Eastern side of the mountains are
Fish Lake and Clear Lake valleys
affording abundant pasture during
the summer months, but covered
with water and snow during the win
ter. When you leave the Cascades be
hind, you strike the head waters of the
Deschutes river. The road passes

Still asain On the 8th of the
past month of November, the
Oregonian published, with the sig
nature of "Examiner," what pur
ported to be a review of the prospec
tus of the Oregon Pacific, anil of the
circular in which its bonds were
recommended bv the financial com
pany in New York which had un
dertaken the issue of its securities. It
is difficult to say which is the more
repulsive, the cynical audacity of the
attempt to assume the disguise of a
citizen of Oregon interested, oh ! so
deeply, in the good faith of appeals
to the public to invest in Oregon se
curities, or the recklessness of state
ments made to deceive the eastern
capitalist, unfamiliar with Oregon
and its resources, and timid in taking
hold of new undertakings.
When this first appeared our
readers were, many of them, puzzled
at seeing a writer, evidently familiar
with his subject, venturing on state
ments he must, have known could be
disproved as soon as made. The dis
guise of the public-spirited citizen
was too (bin. The hands were those
of Esau, but the voice, it was,
indeed, Jacob's voice. The very
ring and turn of the sentences was
familiar. The old game was played
of a publication here to affect the
eastern market. On the 8th it was
inserted in the Oregonian here, on
the 15th garbled copies were sent out
in floods in New York, with this, pre
fix: "The following review of the
circular and prospectus recently pub
lished in promotion of the attempted
sale of $3,250,000 of first mortgage
bonds of the Oregon Pacific Rail
road, has appeared in the Daily Ore
gonian, the leading journal of Port
land, Oregon ;'' and this is the last
sentence : " The reviewer states that
his interest in this matter is simplv
the interest he feels as a citizen of
Oregon ot preventing misleading
statements from going about without
contradiction to the injury in future
to legitimate enterprises in our State."

Charles B. Longee was found with
his neck broken on the wharf at Em

supposed he got np in the morning
early, walked out, and losing his
footing fell from the wharf with the
fatal result noted. He had been a
resident of Empire for over fifteen
years and was highly respected.
H. P. Whitney has made arrange
ments for building a tank on his
wharf at Empire City to furnish wa

improvement will be a great conve

mill on Paget Sound receives.
A steam ferry is now running .be
tween Colombus, Grant's Landing

It is a startling fact, that quinine, arsenic,

of most of the " Fever and Ague Prepara

from these mineral poisons, although they
are palatable, aud may break the chill, do
not cure, but leave the malarial and their
