ATTORNEY AT LAW.
OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COUNTY.
Among the several bills introduc
d into the legislature regarding
traffic with common carriers, we are
not aware that any have been intro
duced with tne necessary compulsory
provisions so as to require one com
mon carrier to deliver freight to
another line of transportation bound
for the same destination, while in
transit. Such . law is a f meritorious
one and much needed. During the
last year it has been quite impossible
to ship freight from San Francisco
and get the same transferred to river
steamers- as directed at Port
land. But instead it has been trans
ferred Irom ocean steamers to the
railroads at Portland and brought up
the valley at double the expense
which would have been charged by
the river steamer to which it was di
rected to be delivered. Is there leg
islative power and intelligence
enough in Oregon to enact laws con
taining the necessary requisites to
prevent sn,ch an utrage? It is now
proposed to gaiu the favor of public
opinion by donating some of these
ill got gains for the purpose of en
dowing some state institution of
AS ACT TO PREVENT SWINE FROM RUN
NING AT LARGE IN CERTAIN COUNTIES.
Some of the citizens about Port
land whose only aim in life is to
catch a dollar, for a long time have
been jealous on account of holding
the State Agricultural fair at Salem.
They iried for several years to coax
it down to Portland but failed in
the effort. At last they organized
the Mechanics fair -to be held in
Portland for the purpose of Port
land tradesman to exhibit their
wares. This was not likely to wipe
ont the state fair because they had
no exhibit of stock and no way of
testing speed &c. So something
else had to be done and in order to
do it a kind of a side program was
organized to have the race course
well represented over on the other
side aoont East Portland. Still the
State fair prospered and did not dis
band in order to give everything to
Portland and something again had to
be done. After the time for holding
the State fair at Salem was appoint
ed for this year the scheming ones
about Portland put their heads to
gether and concluded the way to fix
them was to appoint the time for
commencing the Mechanics fair dur
ing the same week at which the State
fair was being held. This was done,
which had the tendency ot injuring
the State fair, just what it was in
tended to do. In cdnsequence of it
the exhibits at the State fair was
scarce in many respects. In fact the
exhibition of swine and the swine
shows usual at the State fair was an
entire failure, because all of the genu
ine old hogs worth noting remained
at Portland to manage the Mechanics
fair. This, however, is no more than
could be expeoted because all enter
prises throughout the state outside
of Portland whether of local or pub
lic nature meets the same fate of
being squelched by the interference
of Portlands pigish disposition. In
view ot all the facts we highly com
mend the passage of a bill by the
present legislature for the puspose of
"preventing swine from running at
large in certain counties." Multno
mah should be made one of the coun
ties especially that part in and
about Portland where all the old
MB. SIGLDTS LAW TO PROMOTE DISHON
ESTY . Senator Siglin of Coos county is
attempting to distinguish himself in
the present Oregon Legislature. In
order to do so in part he has introduc
ed Senate bill No. 8, the same being an
act to exempt homesteads from at
tachment and judicial sale. The es
sential feature of the bill in substance
is that the homesteads of families to
the extent of one block if in a town
or city, or 160 acres in the country,
not to exceed m valne fifteen hun
dred dollars except such homestead
need not be less than 40 acres or
one lot no matter what the value
shall be, exempt from judicial sales
for the satisfaction of any debt or lia
bility hereafter contracted. The
practical workings of such a law is
certainly for the benefit of rogues and
scoundrels and not for the relief of
worthy oppressed people. The pres
ent exemption law which is now on
onr statute book opperates more
Limes to assist gome scoundrel to
purposely and premedkatedly swin
dle' creditors, lhaii it does to assist
some honest ineu who is oppressed
by his creditors. The law proposed
by Mr. Siglin can not be expected
to perform a better office. The law
proposed byMr. SiglinJ would opper
ate as a means for dishonest rogues
to gain credit, after which they would
shrink behind it when creditors called
for their money and tell them that
they had nothing which the law
would touch, while honestly disposed
men, no matter how poor, would pay
their obligations even though the law
did exempt a fifteen hundred dollar
homestead. It is a law for the bene
fit of scoundrels and dishonest rogues
and no honest man who understands
the practical opperation of such a law
will vote for it. There is no honest
man that asks for such a law and
would aot take advantage of it if
such a law existed. But rogues who
are always endeavoring to get some
thing for nothing, would be highly
pleased with such an act and would
neyer fail to rob their fellow men by
seeking every opportunity to take
advantage of it. There aro already
an over supply of thieves and robers
and also a class of persons who much
prefer to get something for nothing,
without enacting laws purposely to
train more persons in such lines of
dishonesty. If it is right and proper
to exempt property in land to tbe
extent of $1500 worth, why, with
equal propriety, would it not be right
to exempt another families money to
the extent of $1500 who had no land?
If it is right to exempt $1500 in land
for one man, every other man who
was not so fortunate as to have land
should have the benefit of exemption
to the same value in other kind of
THE BILL TO REGULATE TRAFFIC WITH
Senator Robert Clow of Polk Coun
ty, has introducod another bill in the
legislature at the present Session
with provisions similar to the bill ot
last session which was then termed
Senate Bill 82. This bill provides
for the transmission of freight and
passengers without discrimination
either in time or rates of freight. It
requires one corporation to receive an
transmit freight, passengers tendered
it during transit, with equal dispatch
and at the same price as if the freight.
and passengers had been carried all
the way from point of starting to
that of destination on the same line.
In short, it requires all transportation
companies doing business within the
state to perform their duties with
equal justice to the patronizing pub
lic and provides severe penalties for
a non compliance with such duties.
Every industry in our state is thor
oughly interested in this act becom
ing a law. And' every legislator in
the present legislature who is there
for the purpose of doing that which
is to the best interest of the people
generally, will give this bill bis most
hearty support. We might also add
that those legislators who are ex
pected to act in the interests of mon
opolies to oppress the people will
likely oppose it.
Henry Villard's proposition to pur
chase public favor by endowing the
State University with $50,000, on
conditions, ha so far met with seem
ing seriousness from the legislature
as to be referred by that body to a
committee to act upon. Quite a poor
time for the legislature to begin to
sell their constituents into bondage.
This, however, is a day of wondrous
things and it is certainly difficult to
forsee what may happen.
GREAT MEN. m
Their names are legion. They
are short, thick and fat, they are
lank and tall, some are white, brown,
black and blacker. They are gener
ally of every nationality excepting
the Chinaman. They generally are
China haters and are agreed that
"John must go." Now these great
men are not so scarce as some of our
good people think. They can be
found in the bar rooms, in hotels, on
the streets roosting on beer kegs and
whithng dry goods boxes. We may
talk about President Arthur, General
Grant, Alexander Stevens and that
sharp gentleman, that occupies so
mueh of the attention of our present
legislature, John Mitchell, but Tom,
Jim, John, Tim and Pat, and plenty
more that we- know, could manage
the affairs of the nation, at least they
think so, much better than any one
or all of these gentlemen combined,
and to hear them talk yon would
think they wero just as ready to try
it. Every town and country village
has one or two of these great men,
and in our drinking towns every Sat
urday there will be as many as ten to
twenty of the greatest men in the
world found, making themselves
greater by sending pots of beer down
gutter lane, and they go on b wallow
ing un'il they are found wallowing.
These men are very much opposed to
getting dry and they prefer drinking
something besides water, if they do
drink water they want it diluted with
"something." They never get tight,
but they get very loose, at least their
tongues do, and you need not go into
the bar room to hear them talk; they
talk loud, fast and long. You can
hear them outside the house, and if
you listen to their fine flow of lan
guage, when they all are talking at
once, you will conclude that they are
not holding a Sunday school, nor a
prayer meeting, neither are they con
ducting a district school or a college,
and as to their flow of language there
seems to be no ending, and its a
shame that there ever was a begin
ning. They mix up their vulgarity
with their politics, for they are all
politicians; they laugh in derision
about thoso cranky teetotalers and
curee temperance men, women and
temperance societies. They believe
in moderation in everything but
drinking, and wind up by concluding
every man is a fool that can't govern
himself, which they never fail to
prove, by giving a practical demon
stration in their own case. They are
opposed to prohibition and are in
favor of license. A few evenings in
such company will poison the mind
and blight the moral of the best boy
in our town. Prohibition.
THE FIRST PASSENGERS FROM THE NORTH
ERN PACIFIC FRONT TO EAST
Passengers have arrived in East
Portland and Albina, having come
through from Beaver creek, in Mon
tana territory, a distance of 513 miles
from Portland, entiiely by rail. Of
this stretch, 300 miles is the North
ern Pacific lino and the remaining
213 miles is the Oregon Railway &
Navigation Company's Columbia
river division, which was finished at
half past ten o'clock yesterday morn
ing. The event was not without
suitable ceremony. At a quarter
past eight a train of three Oregon
& California railroad coaches bear
ing a number ot prominent invited
citizens left the east side depot and
swinging round the curve at Sulli
van's gulch, proceeded east to a point
ihree hundred yards above Multno
mah falls, reaching its destination
promptly at ten o'clock. The party
which was under charge of Mr.
Henry B, Thielson, assistant chief
engineer, was oomposed of Judge
Matthew P. Deady, Hon. J. N.
Dolph and officers of the O. R. & N.
Co. and other prominent guests from
At the point of junction, the train
from Portland was met by a special
which came through from the Nort
ern Pacific front, bearing Gen. J. W
Sprague, Mr. II. Thielsen, Gen. H.
A. Morrow and Messrs. Blackstone,
Reed and Frye, U. S. commissioners,
who had just finished examination
of the last twenty-rive miles. All
disembarked and gathered about
the meeting point, where everything
wa6 in readiness. An arch of ever
greens, entwined with national em
blems, had been constructed over
the track, and a live eagle was sus
pended beneath the center. The
last rail was quietly placed in posi
tion, the end resting on a handsome
cross-tie, inlaid with walnut letters,
"O. R. & N. Co., 1882." Every
spike but one had been driven, when
Mr. Prescott asked the assemblage
to assist in fastening the last rail of
the O. R. & N. Co's Columbia river
system. A silver spike was then
sent home, twenty or more guests
that certificate. The clerk asked bcr if she
was not married and ehe said no; the fellow
had stolen the certificate and had rnn away
with her daughter, aud she wanted to know
if he could get married on a certificate she
had paid for.
Prof. E. E. Barnard, of Nashville, Tenn.,
cn te 14th inst. discovered a new comet lo
cated near the star Lambda, in the constell
ation of the Twins. His discovery was an
nounced by telegraph to Mr.H. H. Warner,
at the Warner Observatory, Rochester, N.
Y., and almost at the same moment Prof.
Lewis tswift, Director of the Warner Obser
vatory, received intelligence that a large na
ked eye comet had been discovered in Rio
Janeiro, South America. Prof. Barnard is
the Srst person the present year to receive
the Warner prize of $200. The fact that
these two comets came into view at the sam
time is exceedingly significant.
Licenses to Marry.
Portland (Me.) Argus.
A young man entered the clerk's office a
day or two ago and wished to be published.
He was asked his name and the name of the
lady. He gave the latter as Miss Blank.
But what's her christan name was asked,
why, she hasn't got any replied the young
man. But she must have a name said the
geniel clerk. No she hasn't presisted the
man. Well, what do you call her when you
speak to her? Oh, 1 call her Rebecca, said
the man. He got his certificate. A lady,
called a short time ago and wanted a certi
ficate' and when the clerk asked tht man's
name she said she didn't know, but he was
outside and she would ascertain. She went
out and soon returned and told his last
name. ''What is his first name?" asked the
clerk. "There, "she said, "I forgot to ask
him; I will go back and learn." A month
after she called again and wanted to know
if the man could marry any one bat her ca
Omaha, Oct. 1. At the national woman's
suffrage association resolutions were adopt
ed thanking congress for the appointment
of a select woman suffrage committee in the
last house; thanking Senators Lapham,
Ferry, Blair and Anthony for their report
in favor of an impartial suffrage amendment
to the constitution of the United States;
that it was the paramount duty of congress
to submit a 16th amendment which shall
secure the enfranchisement of women; that
the association should labor for the submis
sion of an amendment to the national con
stitution prohibiting states from disfranchis
ing on the ground of sex. That the action
of state conventions, republicans in Kansas
and Indiana, democrats in Massachusetts,
anti-monopolists in New York and prohi
bitionists in Chicago, indicate a iecognition
of strength of woman's political rights.
That it is the duty oi the legislature of
Oregon and Indiana to enact the proposed
woman suffrage amendment.
New Yorky Oct. 1. A Washington spec
ial to the Evening Post says: Joseph R
McCammon, assistant attorney general for
the interior department, was sent some
time since to make a treaty with the Flat
head Indians, under which the Northern
Pacific railroad should have the right-of-
way for their road through the reservation.
McCammon returned yesterday, after a
successful and rather adventurous trip.
After a ride of 600 miles in a stage coach,
he reached an agency where the negotia
tions were to be conducted. The braves
were on hand to receive him. At the first
meeting the Indians were anything but
friendly. They branished their weapons
and talked loudly. The commissioner be
gan to feel a little uneasy. McCammon
soon found the cause of this hostile behav
ior to lie in the belief of the Indians, due
to false stories of interested white settlers,
that the commissioner had come to rob
them of their lands. McCammon made
haste to disabuse them of such errors, stat
ing his mission and explained the effect of
his visit, which was to pay them a fair price
to be mutually agreed upon for the lands.
This statement pacified the braves, and
hey left the commissioner to treat with
their chiefs. At first the chiefs demanded
a million dollars for the lands, but they
evidently had no conception of the value
of money and readily consented to take
Springfield, III., Oct. 1. An opinion was
rendered by the Illinois supreme court yes
terday involving questions of the power of
the state legislature to regulate rates char
ged by railroads for freights carried to
points outside of Illinois, and whether , the
act prohibiting unjust discrimination in
such rates is not in contravention to the
constitution. In a case wherein 66 per cent
larger rate was charged on a haul from
Oilman to New York, through the distance
from Peoria was greater by So miles, it was
held by the court the charge was unjust,
excessive, exhorbitant and unlawful, and in
effect the court upholds the authority of
railroad and warehouse commissioners to
regulate freight charges from points in Illi
nois to points outside the state.
Philadelphia, Oct. 1. During the session
of the Irish Catholic Benevolent Union's
convention an additional class to aid the
widow and orphans' fund was formed.
Each member of the class is to contribute
twenty-five cents to the heirs of deceased
members. A resolution was also adopted
expressing sympathy with the people) of
Ireland in their struggle to regenerate their
Cairo, Oct L A train from Benha had
just arrived with the 6th rifles when an am
munition wagon in the station exploded,
killing a doctor in the train with some inva
lids and some men, a number of whom are
unknown. The train ignited and the fire
spread to the railroad depot, which Jwas
quickly burned. The flames next reached
the commissary depot adjoining, and thence
extended to some of our magazines, which ex
ploded. It was found impossible to prevent
the reserve ammunition from being destroy
The train with the COth rifles arrived
just as another was starting from Alex
andria with trucks containing ammunition
and shells. One on a truck exploding,
scattered the shells all over the station
and demolished the end of the carriage of
the Benha train, in which, were a number of
invalids. It is feared some soldiers and
natives were buried among the debris. The
Duke of Connaught and the Duke of Teck,
with their staffs, are on the spot. The en
gines are going forward, but the firo spreads
so rapidly that it is hopeless to expect any
thing of consequence to be saved. The
truck with 300 rounds of ammunition has
not yet exploded, rendering approach peri
lous. The whole of commisueriat stores, the
main ordinance stores, the greater part of
the forage, all hospital necessaries, and a
large quantity of clothing is destroyed.
The estimated loss is 100,000.
Later It is reported that three of the
rifles were killed and six wounded by the
explosion. Some of the army service corps
were also wounded. Several natives were
killed and a number of inhabitants were
crushed in the crowd running about, car
rying children, money and other portable
articles, under the impression that Cairo
had been surprised by a new enemy.
Explosions at the railway station con
tinued at brief intervals for over three hours.
The passenger station was saved, but all
the freight sheds, containing ten days pro
visions for the army, and about two hun
dred trucks of ammunition were destroyed.
Five men were killed and twenty wounded.
The fire was of incendiary origin.

St. Louis, Oct. 2. The second annual
meeting of the Farmers' "Congress U being
held in this city. About thirty members
are present. T. J. Hueston of Lamar, Miss.,
president of the society, delivered the an
nual address, in which he took the ground
that agriculture should have a representa
tive in the president's cabinet, and they
should have some one at Washington whose
special training and knowledge would en
able him to point out the evil effect of state
and federal legislation in agricultural mat
ters, as well as the result of commercia
treaties. He also recommended the organ
ization of a larger number of state and
county associations for the exhibition of the
produce of the country.
A resolution was offered for the appoint
ment of a committee to address the tariff
commission in behalf of the producing class,
detailing the injurious effects of a protec
tive tariff on the agricultural interests of
Providence, R. I., Oct. 2. Jas. A. Tob
ernor, representative of the English house

Washington, Oct. 2. Ihe report of Col
onel G. H. Wendlenger, a portion of which
was published yesterday, concerning the
rivers and harbors of California, says in re
gard to the improvement of Petaluma creek
that it is proposed to expend the funds now
available consisting of 8000 appropriated
last year and 14,000 appropriated this year
in dredging the channel in the vicinity of
Petaluma. One more cut off remains to be
made jin which will be excavated 21,000
cubic yards of earth at an estimated cost
of $10,000, which amount, it is thought,
can be profitably expended next year.
San Francisco, Oct. 2. The prohibition
convention finally considered and adopted
a platform. The delegates who withdrew
on account of a disagreement about nomin
ating the ticket number about forty.
Senator Siglin arose to a point of . privi
lege, and announced that inasmuch as he
had been severely criticised by newspaper
reporters in consequence of his act in voting
for Mr. Mitchell, he wished to state that
as soon as the news of his vote had reached
his county, his constituents called a meet
ing and forwarded him the following dis
patch: "Your action supporting Mitchell
meets the approval of both parties here in
view of your public declarations, both be
fore and since your election, and the senti
ment of the people of this district, as well
understood. No other course would be con
sistent swith your duty. " Signed by 80
