OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON CQurtTY
TH LAST RELIC OF BARBARISM,
Jofygamy, with all of its hideous
attendant crimes is fast growing to
nlarraiu proportions and is not con
filled to U'ah, where it was for many
years partially secluded, but has for
some years been gradually spreading
CO the snrronnding territories.
And yet our government officials,
whose duty it has ever been to see
that the laws were duly executed,
have continually stood by and with
their knowledge cf the crimes com
mitted by this influence, and their
failure to put a stop to them, we
cannot refrain from, in one sense,
regarding them as particepts crimi
uis. Because if they had taken
hold of it actively and promptly and
dealt with it as they would with
other crimes, and as their sworn offi--cial
duties required them to do, this
evil would have been banished from
among us years ago. We sometimes
find these questions raised in some
inaugural address, but the thought
of it appears to be soon lost siarht of
after it enters this important docu
ment, to there slumber until some
thing else transpires to again suggest
it. The American people are loo apt
to neglect the correctian of any evil
until it becomes so extensive that its
vil consequences are brought im
mediately to the notice of the whole
eountrv. Whin this condition of
affairs is brought about, the evil
sought to be remedied has probably
tecomo so extensive that war and
much bloodshed is liable to take place
before it can be eradicated.
It seems like the delay in these
things probably occur because our
senators and representatives in Con
jjress no doubt await action until the
Sentiment of the people generally de-
uiaud of them to act, when frequently
it would be better for the country if
they should agitate the question be
fore the people became fully aroused
to a realization of the evil. The
head quarters of this system is estab
lished on the Pacific slope, where also
is situated the new fields through
which it is so fastly spreading. It
will therefore no doubt sooner or
later, devolve upon our Pacific Coast
.senators and representatives to first
take hold of this question.
We do not see any good reason
why it would not be strictly in keep
ing with good propriety for some of
Oregon's representatives to immor
talize their fair name by starting the
ball to rolling in the halls of Con
gress which will eventually eradicate
polygamy from among us.
The following we take from the.
New York Graphic of July 28, 1881 :
Thre have lately been purchased in
England and Germany for this and
next month's shipment, by steamers
to the Pacifi: coast, six thousand
tons of Krnpp's, Barrow's and Mid--dleborough
best steel rails for the
Oregon Pacific Railroad Company,
that could not be procured from
American mills for the same delivery,
en if steamers could have been
procured at any admissable rates to
transport the steel rails to Oregon.
And other parlies have been driven
to foreign markets for the same cause
and for shipment to Sruthern ports
during the ensuing two months."
ECONOMY IN POSTAL AFFAIRS,
Second Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral Elmer reports the reduction in
Star route and steamboat mail ser
vice during July to be $314,604, and
that the full amount of savings in
that line by reductions and discon
tinuances since March 4th is $1,381,
442. This is surely encouraging to
the American people to know that
the country is in the hands of a great
party wlmse leaders are continually
proceeding with investigations for
the purpose of putting a stop to the
frauds and leakages practiced upon
the Nation's purse. Since the Presi
dent' was shot all attention has been
turned' to his -condition and the prob
ability of his-recovery. So much so
that but little news has come from
the East for the last mouth to in
form ns of what is oing on in re
gard to investigations of the Star
route frauds, but it is to be hoped
that investigations have proceeded
regularly and effectually.

THE NEXT DECADE OR THE PACIFIC
COAST,
The next ten yean will witness an
extraordinary development on the
Pacific Coast. Nearly all the great
railroad enterprises which are now
prosecuted are west of the Missouri
River, and they include consolida
tions or direct lines which reach to
the Pacific Coast. It is said that
Jay Gould's programme embraces
about 7000 miles of railroad west of
the Missouri Uiver. The Northern
Pacific embraces with branches about
1000 mtles. The Southern Pacific
with branches nearly as much more.
The Atchison, Toprka and Santa Fe,
with its western extension under the
name of the Atlantic and Pacific, not
less than 3000 miles. These roads,
with the mimeiotii short ones, includ
ing the narrow-gauges, will grid iron
the whole country. How does it
happen that all the great railroad en
terprises of the day are looking to
this coast for termini? The fact in
there is an undeveloped country.
There is vast natural wealth here
which railroads will make accessible.
The new West is between the Rocky
Mountains and the Pacific" Coast.
This is the Empire which is just be
ginning to feel the thrill of a new
life. Capitalists are traversing this
whole vast rtgion, from Mexico to
Alaska. There is no lack of money.
The inquiry is fot business that will
pay. Of course, railroad building
juet now ie an attractive business.
The San Francisco " Bulletin "
thinks that when sedate citizens rub
their hands and say, "There will be
stirring limes here during the next
ten years," it is time to look for the
evidence. The vast railroad develop
ment is one evidence. The revival
of shipping interests is another. The
favor which new manufacturing en
terprises meet, is an additional one.
No other part of the country to day
presents such grand opportunities
for enterprise as the territory known
as the Pacific Coast the long belt
which is between the Sierra Range
and the ocean, stretching from Mexi
co to Paget Sound. That is the
country of the fhturc of railroads,
of fleets of merchant ships, of vast
wheat production, of a mining de
velopment immensely greater than
has ever been known. This is the
country, too, which has lost nothing
by a decade of quiet years, during
which time the prevalent expression
has been that business was dull.
There is no "boom" to day, only the
healthy signs of the new life. A
country large enough to support
thirty million people is comparatively
empty with less than two million in
it. The mere fact that there is so
much room is an attraction. It is
onlv a little while since a semi month
ly 6termer brought thu news from
the Atlantic States. Then came the
Pony Express, afterwards the tele
graph, and then the great continental
railroad. And now a railroad scheme
embracing three or four thousand
miles is hardly mire lhan the wonder
of a single da'.
Idaho aspires to a railroad, and to
that end articles of incorporation of
the Idaho, Clearwater and Montana
Transportation Company have been
filed in the First District in the Ter
ritory. The purpose is to build a
railroad and tejeg aph line from Lew
iston via the Clearwater pass of the
Bitter Root Mountains lo intersi-ct
the Utah Northern Railroad. The
company also proposes to build from
Lewiston via the Snake and Grand
Rondo riven to La Grande, Oregon,
a distance of 100 miles. They further
propose to build a railroad and tele
graph line from Lewiston north via
the Potlach, South Palouse, Four
Mile, North Palouse, Cedar Creek,
Pine Creek and Fork Creek valleys,
and th outlet of Coeurd'Alene Lake,
the fast portion of the Spokan
I plainsdivision to intersect the North
ern Pacific near Westwood. They
alto propose to construct, equip and
operate steamboats on the Snake,
Clearwater and Columbia rjvers in
connection with their railroads. They
claim tor these routes great advanta
ges over any other lines for the char
acter of the country through trhioh
they pass for easy grades and cheap
ness of construction. It is claimed
that Eastern capital can be procured
to build the lines of rood projected,
and that preliminaiy surveys will
soon be made. Tacoma Ledger.

"A DAY AFTER THE FAIR."
We clip from the "Daily Standard"
the following very appropriate edi
torial on the improvements at Ya
quina Bay, which very evidently ex
hibits the fact that the present editors
of that paper have the independence
to say what they mear, regardless of
surrounding influences. This article
will appropriately apply to a few
other papers in the State as well as
to the "Port Orford Post ':
There is a vein of Jealousy running
throurh an editorial in the last, issue
of the Port Orford Post that ridicules
the idea of Yaqnina Bay with its
shoals ever becoming a port of any
pretensions, that if it had been treated
fairly and the desire to show the ad
vantages of Port Orford not been
quite st prominently pushed forward,
a case not altogether bad might have
been made out. However, at a time
'ike this, when surveyors and con
tractors are at work on the road to
Yaqnina Bay and the statement pos
itively made that track is now afloat
for that enterprise, the attack of our j
envious contemporary on the coast is I
ill-timed and as small as its own jour j
nalislic dimensions. If it be true, as j
stated, that Yaquina Bay "must al- j
ways he a shallow harlior at the very
hest such a one as deep water ves
sels will never can never enter,"
the "Port Orrord Post'' should have
made it apparent long ago, and be
fore intelligent men, who have doubt
less looked before leaping, had in
vested their money in a railroad, to
that point on the coast anil had forced
the preliminary work into practical
shape. It ill becomes a coast paper,
or any other paper in Oregon, to find
fault with and try to place obstacle
in the way of an enterprise that is
now well undei way and its sea ter
minus definitely settled upon. If the
selection of Yaqnina Bay was a mis
lake on the part of the parties inter
ested in running the railroad from
the heart of the Willamette Valley
by a direct and short route to tide
water, it is too late to flaunt it in
their faces now. The incorporators
must make the most of it, and it is
the true course of every honest prper
in Oregon to help the venture by en
couraging words rather than aim to
retard it by derision and post mortem
arguments.
Mr. Alexander Sinclair, editor of
the Glasgow Herald, who has been
making an extensive lour of the Uni
ted States, going so far West as the
Rocky mountains, says the dcsii'e to
emigrate from Scotland to the United
States is more so than formerly,
especially among the better class of
farmers-men who have a little money.
There is a feeling of independence
growing up, a desire to own land for
themselves, that pervades all the
members of the Scottish farming com
munity, so that as soon as they can
get what they consider undoubted
information about the farming lands
of this country, and make sure where
is the best place to go, they will come
over in large numbers.

One of the first auts of the depart
ment of agriculture and commerce
just established in Japan was to issue
instructions to the various prefects
and local authorities requiring them
to render all possible assistance in
the way of supplying models, books,
etc., to the artist artisans. The class
of workmen, it is said, has for the
most part been without these appli
ances for a considerable time, but the
government, is at length aroused to
the necessity of reviving, if possible,
the spirit and technical excellence of
the ancient art.

Professor Riley, of the United
States entomologist commission, says
locusts cannot do any damage except
to voting fruit trees, in the limbs of
which they deposit their eggs. He
says the report that the locusts sting
hunvin beings is a fallacy; that a
species of digger wasp feed, on these
young locusts and people have been
stung by these wasps, from which
the belief has sprung that locusts
sting. He says the locusts will sud
denly disappear before long.

Washington, Aug. 9 Minister Foster
writes to -the department of state, under
date of July 18th: The Russian wheat crop
is likely to be one of the largest ever raised
in the empire, and thcexport promises to be
much greater than usual. It is stated that
in the districts tributary- to the port of
O'dessa, the yield is likely to ba so that
farmers think they could dispense with
harvests for four years to come. Advices
from Tanganrag aud Caucasus, show the
promise of crops to be equal to that of 1874,
one of the largest ever kuown in Russia, and
advices from Moscow affirm this. It is
thowght the harvest in southern Russia will
be the largest they have had for 20 years.
Harvest in central Russia, while not so
enormous, will yield a splendid crop of an
excellent quality. In south provinces the
grain is already cut. Further north it is
still subject to damage incident to bad
weather and from insects. From Moscow,
which is the great commercial center of
Russia, it is reported that all branches of
business are beginning to revive and flour
ish after a lone season of depression, solely
on the prospects of an abundant harvest.

THE LATE8T-
1:30 v. m. It having become necessary to
make a further onetime: to facilitate the
escape of pus, we took advantage of the im
proved condition ot tne president tnis morn
ing shortly alter tne morning nuuetin was
issued. He was etherized. The incision
extended downward and toward, and a
counter opening was made into tra;k of the
ball below tne margin or tne twentn no,
which it is believed will effect the desired
object. He bore the operation well, and
has now recovered from the effects of ether
ization and is in excellent condition.
As soon as the patient had been put under
the influence of ether, a long and slightly
curved instrument was introduced into the
woniid, pushed hetween the ribs and carried
downward along the track of the bullet
until its end could be felt below the last
rib fom the outside. Holding this instru
ment in the wound as a guide. Dr. Agnew
then made a counter incision below the
twelfth rib, cutting directly through the
integument untill his knife met the end of
the first mentioned instrument at the point
where he wished to intersect the track of
the ball. The operation was not a dificult
or dangerous one and the patient bore both
it and the etherization extremely well.
There ia now an opening to the deeper parts
of the wound which does not pass between
the ribs and which cau always be kept free
and unobstructed, aud no further trouble
from accumulation of pus is anticipated.
New York, Aug. 9. The Tribune's Wash
