ATTORNEY- AT LAW.
OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COUNTY,
THS LEGI3LATUSE. .
Before another issue ot tins paper ap
pears the Oregon Legislature of 1882 wil
have convened and questions momentous to
us all, and some of interest to the United
States at large -will arise for determination
and settlement. Faom the tone of the press
Generally for the past few weeks it would
seem that thr chief question deemed of im
portance is the election of U. S. Senator.
We do not disguise onr own feeling in this
matter, namety, that the choice of the Ore
gon Legislature should fall on one combin
ing many requisites. First, he should be a
Republican of unddubted consistency. We
name the Republicanism iirst, because many
a man can be found, we are thankful to Bay
possessing other needful qualities, so the
Republican majority has the right, and
dnty, of selecting one in full sympathy with
the principles of the great party to which
we are croud to own allegiance. Next, his
character for pure and honorable conduct in
all departments of life, public and private,
must be above reproach. Our Legislators
owe it to themselves and to their constitu
nts, that none shall represent Oregon
in Congress whose doubtful antecedents
need .aploy and explanation before the
noblest and best of the Senators there can
shake him cordially by the hand. More
over, his previous life must have proved his
fitness to manage and govern men and af
fairs with honesty, wisdom and success. He
must be independent in every sense, his in
spiration must come from a real sense of
duty to our State at large and not from i
public or private retainer for any man
clique, ring, city or corporation. This in
dependence too, must be so true and com
plete that the people may rely on the new
Senator's influence on the filling of offices
and appointments in the future being based
on the fitness of the appointee for the office
to be filled and not in payment of debts of
gratitude for favors in the canvass now in
nil blast, and the public record of the man
i chosen as Senator must faithfully -agree with
the professions he now makes. We put no
truth in sudden conversions here. We have
no faith that the election to the U. S. Senate
works a deep and abiding change in the in
ner nature, and life long conduct of a man
it a man De clever, plausible, insincere, ac
cessible to influences, favorable to certain
individual interests, and enterprises and to
the general neglect of a duty to the state
at large, corrupt or impure In life or man
ner, or recreant to political principles, that
character, that history, he will carry with
him to Washington if Salem lightning
strikes him. The lives and characters of
the candidates prominently before the peo
pie are all pretty well known. Newspaper
praise and newspaper abuse would alike
pass very lightly by the Legislator who so
berly and earnestly determined to do his
duty by his country and by the State. Deeds
not words should be the record to be con
sulted. If in the application of the princi
ples here laid down it shall be fonnd that
J. N. Dolph, Geo. H. Williams, J. H.
' Mitchell, W. Lair, Hill, R. P. Boise or any
otf.-e- candidates prominently spoken of
cr vlo may hereafter be brought before the
Legislature for that important position,
cannot stami iii test, or if it is thought any
of them if elected will not perform the
duties of United States Senator with equal
justice to each and every portion of the
State alike, most assuredly pass them by
and seek some other material better adapted
to perform the people's will. Let, at any
rate, the Benton county members know and
feel that for a bold and honest performance
of their duty their constituents will hold
them to a strict account, and will accept no
apology on the eround of Portland or ring
influence. The Valley members have got to
stand together, and quit themselves like
men. The Valley has reason to-day to be
proud of the members she is sending, for
they are at least the equals in character,
ability and education of any whom they ex
pect to meet. Let thera insist in plain,
thorough, courteous terras on their rightful
share ot power in the Legislature, and they
will get it this time, if they have never be
fore attained it.
THE IIOETHEEN PACIFIC.
We call our readers' special attention to
the extract we print below from the New
York World of Aug. 24th. It would be a
strange, but not an impossible, turn for
affairs to take if the great Mr. Villard were
to prove another instance of the "engineer
hoist with his own petard," for, clearly,
great as he is he is not powerful enough to
change, by becoming its owner, the essen
tial character of the property he bought.
If the eighteen millions of stock in Mr.
Billings' hands was tainted and fraudulent,
and so Mr. Villard swore it was, it could
. . Mir 1
not wcome clean and honest by his hand
ling it and if by bnying-fraudulent stock
and.hen voting on it Mr. Villard become
the moving spirit and mastej of the North
ern Pacific no wonder that the suits were
stopped, the whole business hushed up, the
accusing counsel silenced, and the very press
itself gagged, for there was the where with
all to do it. The plunder truly was great,
the moving cause a mighty one. Bearing
in mind the strong probability that in some
form or other Congress will have to adjudi
cate in these affairs we would again impress
on the Benton county members of the Ore
gon Legislature their sacred duty to avoid
the smallest chance of sending to congress
a Senator who may be run, or "controlled''
by Mr- Villard, the Northern Pacific, the
O. R. & N. C. or any other railroad mag
nate or corporation. The New York World
of last Aug. 24th comments as follows :
In April, 1881, The World reported two
injunction suits as pending before - Judge
i opeir ana Judge fjiatcntorcl in behaJi
other against Mr. Fredrick Billings and his
associates of the same company. These
suit3 were brought to prevent the issue of
eightsen million of alleged fradulent stock
and the doing of a large number of other
alleged fradulent acts. A most pungent
attack was made by Jlr. Emott (who held
the brief of Mr. YiltaTCs attorneys) on these
alleged frauds during an argument in which
he did not spare the defendants. Then
came Mr- Shipman, doing battle for the de
fendants with great ingenuity and force, and
Mr. Joseph Choate followed with a very
plain-spoken arraignment of Mr. Billings
and Ins colleagues. The report of the controversy-filled
several columns of The World.
All this was in a State court. As to the
soft in the Federal court, no argnments on
the meiits have ever been heard. Nor iu
either suit has the press since been called
upen to report further progress. Why not ?
Because pending the decision Mr. Villard
and Mr. Billings appear to have settled the
controversy by Mr. Villard's becoming the
purchaser in whole or iu part of this issue
of common stock alleged by him to be fraud
ulent. The quiet possession of this stock
would give Mr. Villard and those who acted
with him the control of the Northern Pacific
road. Clearly, therefore, the question be
comes interesting. Was there a fraud 7 On
the hearing before Judge Speir Mr. Villard's
affidavit was read in support of an injunc
tion in which he swore thatJhe stock pro
posed to be issued to the extent of eighteen
millions of dollars was a fraud both upon
the company and the public, and that if
issued and distributed to Mr. Billings and
his associates it would be without consider
ation, as the company was not to receive a
single dollar for it, and that in addition to
this the company, as then reorganized, had
no power to issue these eighteen millions of
TOmnon stock, whether any consideration
was paid for it to the company or not. Un
der the settlement what seems to have hap
pened ? Mr. Villard nnder the settlement
became interested in the control, and the
public eventually became the purchasers of
stock which Mr. Villard had previously
satisfied himself, np to what lawyers call
"the oath-point." was fradnlent. Who owns
the tainted stock now ? Who has profited
by its distribution 1 Must there not have
been another and a very, very "blind pool"
in the transaction ? Possibly it may occur
to our esteemed contemporary the Commer
cial Advertiser to unite with The World in
asking why the proper committee of the
Stock Exchange looks with indifference if
not with complacency on the circulation of
snch tainted stock. There may he a divin
ity th.tt doth hedge the disreputable stock
trans ic-tions ot a Governor, but what divin
ity hedges Mr. Villard 7
While the tendency of the Gazette, for
many years has been republican in politics,
yet we want it distinctly understood that
its columns are open, to any reasonable ex
tent, for a fair discussion of all politica
views no matter whether Independent
Greenback, Republican, Democratic, as
ell as any other question of nublic
importance. To this end we invite con
tributions on the different views of all po
litical and public questions.
The course of the Oregonian towards John
H. Mitchell and especially in garbling and
attempting to mislead as to the course of
that gentleman while in the United States
Senate, is certainly and most assuredly cal
culated to be ot benefit to his reelection
rather than harm. While we are not the
champion of any persons claims for that
position, because there are many men in
Oregon who would do well for our ' State if
elected, each of whose claims are perhaps
equally merritorions, and while Mr. Mitchell
is not first choice with us, yet if a person
is beaten for so important a position by the
seeming selfish harangues like the Oregonian
makes use of, it would certainly be much
more satisfactory to see them conform to
the truth and not try to mislead in those
things regarding so recent a career in the
U. S. Senate and of which the record there
m.ihes familiar to every one. The Oregonian
has certainly ontlived its usefulness in pro
mulgating truth for which newspapers and
the press generally have been deemed of so
much benefit to the human family. That
Join nal of late years seems to deem it of
more importance to scatter broadcast the
petty matters of bate, spite, and misrepre
serrations of its editor, Mr. Scott, with the
vehemence of a demon rather than to dis

Chicago, Sept. 1. The reception to the
widow of John Brown, the liberator, at
Farwell hall to-night in connection with
the effort to raise money to buy her home
stead m California, was attended by about
1000 persons. The address of the evening
was delivered by State Attorney Luther

Mrs. John Brown last night was 821 1.
Galveston, An. 31. Austin special:
The governor has received a message from
the county judge of Hidalgo stating that
yellow fever was spreading in ranches above
Brownsville on the American side of the
San Francisco, Sept. 1. The old bark
Dublin, from Seabeck with lumber, is
ashore on the beach south of Cliff house and
likely to remain there.
The british bark Isle of Anglesea drifted
on Arch rock last night in a dense fog. She
was got off this morning by tugs and taken
to the sea wall looking badly.
Sacramento, Aug. 31. When the rail
road plank was reached Parks offered an
amendment striking out the clauses relative
to reduction of rates of the contract system
and interstate regulation by congress. A
long debate ensued. Parks and Johnson
of Sacramento, spoke in favor of the amend
ment and Knight of San Francisco, op
posed it. McFarland favored the amend
ment and Chamberlain opposed it .
Shafter, of Marion, consent of the chair
man and convention made a few corrections
in the phraseology of the railroad plank,
and Pixley, of San Francisco, asked Shafter
as a lawyer whether it was possible for a
court or legislature to provide against cor
porations making contracts with merchants.
Shafter replied that it would be lawful
for the legislature to declare such a contract
illegal and not to be enforced.
New York, Sept. 2. For a long time
the Chicago, Burlington ft Quincy Railroad
has been using its utmost endeavors to get
control of the Hanibal ft St. Joe railway,
but without success. The controlling inter
est is represented by about 90,000 shares of
stock and wa3 held by John R. Duff, of
Boston, and though the Chicago, Burling-
$63 a share for it
he declined to take it
Philadelphia, Sept. 2, Dr. E, 0. Shakes.
peare of this city, Dr. S, J. W. Arnold of
New York and Dr. J. C. McCornell of
Washington, surgeons engaged in examining
Guiteau's brain, met to-day and decided to
issue a report showing results next week.
The report will have no referance to Guit
eau's sanity. It will be a comprehensive
statement of the condition of the brain and
nature of its disease, if any.
Wheeling, Sept. 3. The grand jury of
the United States circuit court for West
Vargiuia at Parkersburg, yesterday, brought
in a presentment of manslaughter against
Inspector Young for granting a permit to
the steamer Scioto to carry more passengers
than authorized by law; also against David
Keller, pilot of Scioto, and Capt. Inglebright
and pilot Long of the Lomas.
Washington, Sept. 2. Secretary Lincoln
is more amused than annoyed at the frantic
endeavor of certain persons to break up the
President's cabinet and furnish the execu
tive a new set of officers. In conversation
with a friend, Lincoln took occasion to re
fer to the talk abont the impending cabinet
changes, and expressed himself freely and
emphatically saying there was the greatest
good feeling and cordiality between the
President and each member of the cabinet,
and all talk about a cabinet break-np was
not only unfounded bnt absurd. If Secre
tary Folger is nominated for governor of
New York he will probably resign, but if
bo should not be nominated there is not the
slightest likelihood of a change in the treas
ury department. The object of Teller s
visit to Colorado was to attend the mining
exposition at Denver and as a prospective
successor to Senator Cbilcott. One of his
friends says Teller has no idea of leaving
the cabinet to enter the senatorial race, for
had such beou his desire he would not have
left the senate to enter the cabinet. The
rumor that Postmaster General Howe is to
withdraw from the cabinet is fully as im
probable as any other suggested.
Dublin, Sept. 2. It is stated that in
event of terms not being made with the
authorities four or five hundred policemen
have arranged to sail in a special steamer to
Queensland. The men say that 500 men
of the Royal Irish Constabulary have re
fused to do duty in Dublin, and that they
have received a telegram on the part of the
entire body of the constabulary, stating
they will not do duty in Dublin while the
difficulties of the metropolitan forces re
Alexandria, Sept. 3. A meeting was
held Friday to consider the position of the
September and October contracts for cotton
and seeds. It has been found impossible,
in the present state of the eonntry, to make
deliveries in those months, and a commission
of principal merchants and bankers is
formed to ascertain the exact position of the
market and report within 14 days. New
cotton should be arriving now, but the crop
of 1882 is behind and deficient, owing to
the absence of labor and irrigation, and
under the most favorable circumstances a
large deficiency is expected and reported.
San Francisco, Sept. 2. M. M. Estee,
republican nominee for governor, and most
of the other candidates were met by about
2000 people at the ferry on their arrival
this evening, and escorted with music and
fireworks to the Palace hotel. The candi
dates addressed the crowd briefly from the
balcony of the court, which was handsome
ly decorated for the occasion.
Plumbers and gasfitters met to-night to
organize a strike for $4 a day, but deferred
action until the next meeting a few days
Port Townsend, W. T., Sept. 3. Re
publican primaries held last night in Jeffer
son, Clallam and San Juan counties were
virturally unanimous in favor of T. T. Minor
for delegate to congress. In the largest
primary ever held in Port Townsend all
but three votes were in his favor.
Springfield, Sept. 2. 1 he area of mead
ows, as returned by the assessors to the
state board of agriculture, is the largest
heretofore reported, and is 2,629,000 acres
The hay crop is generally saved in good
condition, but the quality is not the best,
being rather rank. Total yield, 4,389,000
tons, 345.000 tons more than in 1878, which
was the largest crop recorded.
Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 4. A duel is im
minent between Gen. Chalmers and Van H.
Manning, candidates for congress. Both
spoke at Holly Springs in joint debate.
Manning spoke last and made a scathing
review of Chalmers' record. Both re
mained at Holly Springs Sunday with mes
sengers passing back and forth, Chalmers
demandiug a full retraction. Thomas Har
ris represented Chalmers and Edward Wat
son was Manning's friend. Rumors of t
duel gain credit from the fact that both
failed to appear at the place appointed for
to -day s debate.
New York, Sept. 4. The Nickle
rauroaa management nave decided on an
aggressive policy against the Lake Shore
and will demand of it a good share of the
Buffalo and Chicago traffic and if not grant
ed war will be waged.
Sherman, Texas, Sept. 4. Hon. Geo. R.
Reives, late speaker of the honse of repre
sentatives, is at the point of death from
Washington, Sept. 4. The first of the
3 per cent, bonds were issued from the
treasury this afternoon.
Chicago, Sept. 4 A special from Colum
bia says a row of mammoth proportions has
developed in the democratic -state com
mittee, which bids fair to change the entire
plan of conducting the campaign. It has
been the custom to hold a meeting every
Thursday, but the only member who re
sponded at the last meeting was Mr. Hall,
oi Lima, xne original plan ot the cam
paign in organization of the committee was
to divide the state for work and allow each
member control of the funds to conduct his
section of the state. Last week the com
mittee got possession of some $20,000, and
Chairman Thompson appropriated some for
general purposes and use of the committee
at headquarters. Other members became
dissatisfied and refused to have anything
further to do with the campaign, and it is
now learned that the liquor men refuse to
turn over any funds to the committee and
will spend their own money. They gay
they will work for the state ticket, bnt are
making a fight particularly for congressmen
and will use money in" the close districts
They expect to have sixteen members in
the next congress to the republicans' five.
the delegates now standing fifteen to five
in favor of the republicans, one district hav
ing been added. Liquor men say the state
tax cannot be put on at any rate before 1883
and they want to control the national tax
and get the internal revenue reduced.
Glenser, a member of the committee identi
fied with the liquor interests, has with
drawn and taken up with the other side
and says Thompson sees no other resource
for funds and is hanging on to what he has
got. It is nrged against him that he has
commenced laying wires for Pandleton in
the senatorial contest this early in the cam
paign, which is creating much dissatisfac
London, Sept. 4. The times sayB though
General Wolseley does not reqnire a third
division the government is determined to
strengthen his hands by sending three
battalions of infantry so Gen. Wood may be
set free without leaving a garrison of less
than 5000 at Alexandria.
Alexandria, sept. 4. ine uneasiness
among the Europeans is nnabated, and sen
sational rumors of every kind are circulated
to-night. A report that the French consul
general had asked for transports to remove
the French subjects has proved to be un
true. The British military authorities have
mapped the town into districts connec
by telephone, and they feel satisfied this
will enable them to quell any unforseen
outbreak. At 5 o'clock this evening Eng
lish heavy guns near Cairo railway began
shelling Arabi Pasha's camp. The enemy
replied, their shells falling within 10 yards
of Fleming depot in Rameleh lines. Two
more British gnns joined in the fire, where
upon a lively cannonade ensued. The
my continued in excellent practice, all their
shells falling close to the British camp.
Water in the canal broke through the dam
to-day and is one and a half metres high
-Alexandria, aept. 4. a UreeK who re
cently arrived from Cairo, gives a gloomy
account of the situation there. He fears
when Arabi is defeated he will destroy ' the
city. He estimates at Cairo only -1000
troops, who will join in pillaging the city at
the first opportunity. He says Circassians
are maltreated whenever seen in the streets
St. Petersburg, Sept. 4. English agents
have arrived at Odessa to purchase 28,000
head of sheepand cattle for their troops in
Alexandria. Sept. 4. The man-of-war
Minotaur is shelling the rebel lines because
of threatening demonstrations made by the
enemy from Maudra.
San Frncisco, Sept. 4. Claus Spreckles
having obtained the fee simple from the
Hawaiian government of the territory of
Wailukn, the harbor of Wahului will short
ly have from five to ten thousand men at
work prodncing sugar.
Reno, Sept. 4. The chairman of the re
publican central committee called the re
publican state convention to order at noon
in the theater.
New York, Sept. 5. Conkling now op
poses the candidacy of Secretary Folger.
Out of 89 delegates thus far chosen 30 are
for Cornell and 28 for Folger.
The great labor demonstration to-day
was successful. Folly 150 organizations
were represented and 20,000 men in line.
Newport. Sept. 5. President Arthur re
mains on board the yacht in East river.
He spent yesterday in fishing.
Little Rock, Sept. 5. The election passed
off quietly in all portions of the state heard
from, dispatches showing an unusually large
vote. The democratic state ticket is evi
dently elected by about the usual majority.
Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 5. An Avalanch's
Helena, Ark., special claims lhe election
there to-day was carried by bulldozing in
the face of 2000 republican majority. It
says leading citizens assured Gov. Churchill
every man'wontd vote as he wished and
have the vote eonnted. The governor ap
pointed J. C. Barlow commander of the
military, and when, telegraphed as to what
was going on did not reply. One negro was
John P. Taylor, candidate for county clerk,
was abused at the court bouse and made to
give up his tickets. Jndge Bennett and
Jacob Taylor were treated in a similar man
ner and notified to go home. After most
of the negroes had gone home the democrats
endeavored to get some few that remained
in town to vote, saying .they did not wish
the impression to get out that they w
not allowed to vote.
Columbus, Sept. 5. The greenback labor
state convention has 125 delegates, mostly
less wife, and her paramour and lost no
time in boarding the steamer. The" three
persons met on the steamer a , few minutes
before the lines were cast off, and husband
and lover drew pistols on sight and were
preparing to commence in genuine "cowboy"
style, when Capt. Bolles rushed up and
finally took the weapons from the beliger
ents. The woman refused to leave her
lover and the husband refused to leave the
wife, so all three left on the steamer. Capt.
Bolle3 told them that if they renewed hos
tilities on the ship he would place the trio
in irons. The affair occasioned a very
exciting scene among the passengers and
spectators, and a lively time is anticipated
when the parties reach Portland.
San Francisco, Sept. 5. In the case of
one of the alleged Chinese merchants who
arrived here on the steamer Rio Janeiro
from Panama and who was not permitted t
land, Judge Field in the United States cir
cuit court to-day decided that merchants
coming from countries other than China
may land without certificates.
