Entered a the Postoffice at Corvallis,
Oregon, as second-class matter.
Any person who will secure four
new subscribers for the Gazette for
the coming year, paid in advance,
we will send a copy of the Gazette
for one year free.
The question of reducing the pos
age upon letters is undergoing con
iteration about.congress. The ex
perience in the past at various times
whn letter postage was reduced
from twenty-five cents to ten cents
and from thence to three cents, that
each time the increase in the corres
pondence kept the supply of revenue
from such source up to what it had
been before. In fact th revenue in
creased by such reduction. At the
present time when the income of the
postal service is considerably in ex
cess of the expense, why not reduce
letter postage to one cent. Under
such a reduction the increase in cor
respondence would certainly bring
the revenue to a sufficient amount to
meet the expense.
At the last meeting of the city
council that body passed an ordi-
eance vacating a certain alley
through block No. 7 of this city be
longing to Judge Burnett and the
writer. Nothing has heretofore ap
peared in' the Gazette upon this
subject because we had the object in
view of getting this particular alley
Vacated and hence we did not feel
justified in discussing a subject that
others might attribute to self inter
est as a motive for doin so. Be
lieving that the effects of open alleys
in a town naturally involves the
health and lives of all of our citizens
and the alley that we were directly
ruterested in having been vacated, we'
therefore take the liberty of calling
attention to the evil effects of them
The petitioners for vacating the
alley alluded to did it because the
alleys in this town, as well as all
other towns heard from, are used
simply and most gpnerally for the
purpose of the adjoining occupants
dumping filth, dirt and refuse mat
ter, where it remains until the damp
season of the year creates moisture
enough to supply plenty of mud
when the drays, trucks, wagons and
stock of different kinds going through
such alleys mixes trash filth'and mud
all np together where it remains un
til it makes the natty est most foul
and filthy Cf spool that the human
Imagination can think of. This state
of affairs soon contaminates the
whole atmosphere around and the
result is that the people arc taken
down with fevers and blood poison
ings of different kinds and many of
them are thereby J carried to the
grave. Not only such is the result
bnt the city is continually being put
to expense to keep such places clean
and with all efforts in that direction
there never was a town in existance
which ever has-been able with all
the vigilance imaginable to keep
their alleys in a clean and decent
condition. If all the pioperty hold
ers on any block petition the city
council or consent to the alley in
sach block being vacated, the council
then have authority to vacate it.
In the interest of health and clean
liness we invite the people of our
town to consider the questions here
suggested, and if thought proper to
act upon the suggestion. If any
doubts arise in the minds of any per
son regarding filthy alleys let scuh
persons go along and through the
alleys of our town and examine the
mixture there to be found. It after
such examination they fiud anything
clean or calculated to promote health
we would be glad to have their re
A lot of jobbers who may be in
the interests of some private steal
from the government, seem quite
anxious that the Nicaragua canal bill
pass congress, and are useiug their
utmost endeavors to accomplish that
object. Some of the committee men,
before whom the bill is pending,
very appropriately refuse to recom
mend its passage, for the very good
treason that the United States by exist
ing treaties would be prevented from
any control over-it. Those who- are
interested in perpetrating the steal
apon the government, lean backward
3jo i heir dignity and declare that
iey do not ask for any money.
They only askthat tbc government
guarantee that the scheme will pay
three per cent on the capital stock
not to exceed $75,000,000, and yet
they are not asking for money. It is
simply asking for an opportunity to
require government to pay an in
come on their bad investment.
The star route schemes are being
watched too closely to bo healthy
and the next part of the programe
is to create new opportunities in or
der that the usual amount of thievery
may be done. The canal would un
der proper circumstances be of ben
efit to the commerce of the United
States. Bat she should not in any
event become mixed up with the
affair until existing treaties can be so
modified as to give the United States
absolute control over the sanal when
B. F. Butler is jubilant over his
election and sausy towards demo
crats. He claims that he owes his
election to republicans who were dis
satisfied with the previous adminis
tration of stale. He asserts that he
will not forget that Massachusets is
largely a republican state. If his
memory should serve him in that
manner democrats will likely recall
to mind again the matter of spoons
and his army regulations whilo in
New Orleans.
Temperance Lecture.
Dr. Watts on last Monday evening deliv.
ered a very interesting lecture in Corvallis,
upon the subject of temperance. It was
not only interesting but also very applica
ble to the question under consideration.
The lecture was delivered in the Dr's. pe
culiar style and treated of the prohibition
branch of the temperance question. He
took for the subject of his remarks a text
from the Holy writings found in Exodus
Chapt. XXI and verse3 28 and 29 thereof,
which he read as follows:
"If an ox gore a man or a woman, that
they die; then the ox shall be surely stoned
and his flesh not eaten; but theowner of the
ox shall be quit." Again; "but if the ox
were wont to push with his horns in time
past, and it had been testified to his owner
and he hath nci kept him in, but that
had killed a man or a woman ; the ox shall
be Btoned, and the owner put to death."
The lecturer arsued that this was one of
God's commands for the preservation of hu
man life; so prescous did he regard the life
that he had given unto mankind that every
safe gaurd should be thrown around to pre
serve the life which, if taken by man, could
not be returned ng&in. He also very appro
priatoly and truly took the ground that the
same impulse and desire to protect human
life was implanted in the breast of every
man and that human laws were based upon
the same principle in carrying out the pur
pose announced in the text. By way of il
lustrating his course of reasoning he asked
if a vicious dog should run out upon the
street and bite a child which was passing
that way, if the owner of the child would
not likely shoot that dog, and if the owner
of the dog had previously been warned tha
the dog was in the habit of biting people
and that at the time of his biting the child
in question, if the owner of the dog was
then hissing him on to the child, would not
the owner of the child after shooting the dog
turn around and administer distraction to
dogs owner. Dr. Watts took the position
that such would likely be the result, if not,
it would be the principle which would acu
ate any and every human beast if he did not
go so far as to 'perperate the dead.
He then inquired if some evil disposed
person should bring a large box full of rattle
snakes and place them on the street corner
and when the sunny days of spring came
along and warmed them up bo that they
commenced to snap at and bite the people
passing thereby, would not the people dis
troy every snake and the owner too, if nec-
cessary, to preserve their own lives from the
uncroachment of such snakes.
He said if a merchant of Corvallis should
visit San Francisco for the purpose of pur
chasing a new supply of goods and he should
6nd a store in which the clerks had therein
broken out with smallpox, and thereby had
infected the stock of goods therewith, and
the owner thereof should offer such goods
to the Corvallis merchant for ten per cent,
on the dollar, for reason of their poisonous
qualities and such merchant should buy
them and bring them to Corvallis the law
would send him to the penitentiary, for
thus endangering human life. He also
stated that the law for the purpose of pre
serving life and health prevented men from
starting soap factories, slaughter houses and
other noxious trades in the midst of onr
thickly populated towns. That the law for
the same reason prevented men from duel
ing and applying the same principle to sav
ing mens property so that they may not
become beggars and charges upon society,
the law prevents gambling by making it an
The speaker also contended that the law
had in every other respect thrown safe
guards around human life and property for
the purpose of preserving them with severe
penalties for any violations thereof except
in the matter of the sale, use, and evil
effects of alcohol upon human life. He con
tended that as God had decreed that the ox
should be slain for taking human life and
his master also if he should have been fore
warned, and as the natural impulse im
planted in man was to kill the vicious dog
who should bite his child and the owner
thereof, also if he should set the dog on to
the child, and by the - same impulse we
would kill the snakes which had been placed
by the way side, endangering the lives of
the passers by and as the law prevents and
punishes the man who endangers life by
bringing smallpox into the community and
as the policy of the state is in every re
sgeob by law to throw safe-guards around
human-life and property, er should the state
by law destroy all alcohol made to use as a
beverage and prohibit its being used for
such purposes. Ho contended that with
alcohol there did not require to be any ex
ception made with it. That a law should
be passed preventing mankind from horning
their fellow men down the throat -" with al
coholic beverages. That saloon keepers
should be prevented from hissing their
alcoholic bulldog; upon their fellow men and
their families. That they should also be
prohibited from exposing the" lives of the
husbands and the wives and children there
of to the venomous bite of their alcoholic
serpent. That the state should guard hu
man life by prohibiting them from madden
ing a mans brain with alcohol until instead
perhaps of dueling he puts the pistol to his
head and blows out his own brain in order
to get rid of the snakes that haunts his vis
ion. So should the state in carrying' out its
policy to prevent gambling and save men's
substance from being wasted prohibit man
from selling to his neighbor that poisonous
beverage which takes his estate in exchange
therefor drives his brain to madness and
wastes his estate, rendering himself and
those dependent upon him helpless, depend
ent, poor and poverty stricken. The speak
er gave, many appropriate illustrations of
the effects of strong drink upon men in our
state who have passed away under its influ
ence, but space forbids us occupying so
much space as would requireto give them.
It was contended by him that the assassin
ation with a shot gun was not near so mean
as the one who shoots his neighbor to death
by shooting him down the neck with alco
holic beverages, because, says he, with the
gun he ony kills the body and leaves the
reputation of deceased and his wife and in
nocent children unsullied. But on the oth
er hand, in shooting alcohol down the vic
tims neck it kills both body soul and repu
tation wastes his estate and leaves his fain
lly penniless and not only this but the in
jured reputation extends so far as to sully
the once good name of the innocent widow
and helpless children and also poisons their
young blood with the serpents poisonous
effects. The lecture differed entirely from
the visual sterotyped temperance lecture so
often heard and was quite interesting,
We have attempted to give the substance
of the speakers remarks, want of space for
bidding us from giving it in full.
Washington, Dec. 9. The postoffice com
mission of the house yesterday agreed to ; a
favorable report of the bill introduced last
session by Anderson of Kansas to reduce
the rate of letter postage to two cents per
half ounce or fract: n thereof, after Jan. 1
Washington, Dec. 9. Talks with repub
lican representatives to-day elicited many
expressions of approval of the report of the
tariff commission and strengthened the im
pression that their recommendation will be
likely to receive the support of most repub
Hcans. At the oame time the democrats
expressed themselves as favoring the rec
ommendations in general. There are inti-
mations that the representatives of the su
gar trade may nnd it to their interest to
form some kind of alliance with the Ha
watian commissioner.
New York, Dec. 9. The police captains
of Brooklyn have been instructed not to
interfere with barbers next Sunday, unless
they sell cigars, and not to permit Jews to
do business. On the other hand, twelve
Hebrews of New York have secured an in
junction, in the suits against the police, re
straining the latter from interfering with
their Sunday labor or services.
Bloomington, 111., Dec. 10. The family
of Lewis Brandenberg, a well known citizen,
was poisoned a day or two since by eating
trichina.' in sausages. One of the family
died this morning. Mr. Brandenberg and
wife cannot recover.
Washington, Dec. 10. It is reported
that, the engineers of the Panama canal have
made a radical change in their plans of oper
ations. The intention of the projectors
was to make a sea-Ieavel canal from ocean
to ocean without locks of any kind. In
formation now comes out that they find it
impossible for any sum of money which could
be raised, to over come the natural dfficul
ties of such an undertaking, and they have
decided to adopt the ordinary plan, that of
locking up and down the grades. The other
schemes involved the operation of digging
the canal for some distance through great
cuts, which would seem,several hundred feet
deep, involving the amount of excavation
the like which was never attempted by hu
man hands.
Washington, Dec. 10. The regulation
governing mints and assay office have been
amended so that on and after the first of
January, 1883, on charge at the assay office
can be collected from the depositors of gold
for the transportation of their bullion to
the mints for coinage, the cost of which, un
der the provisions of the existing law, as
construed by the director of the mint and
secretary of the treasury are required to be
paid from the appropriation for freight on
the bullion and coin between mints and the
assay offices.
New York Dec. 11. Ex-Gov. Stanford,
of California, has rented the old residence
ofVanderbilt on Fifth avenue, and will
spend the winter here. His wife is report
ed to have the finest diamonds in the city,
except those of Mrs. John Jacob As tor. She
improved the opportunity presented by a
fashionable wedding In an uptown church
the other day to show them all on her per
son at one time. Many ladies present
thought it a strange place to appear quite
so brilliantly bedecked, but perhaps envy
was quite an element in their criticisms.
The lady wore a magnificent necklace of
diamonds, while below it, extending from
shoulder to shoulder, was a row of splendid
gems four inches deep, and as if these were
not enough to make a decided sensation,
the lady's ears, head, arms and dress were
ablaze with jewels. -
Moneyed men of the Pacific coast are still
coming here in considerable numbers, many
of them to reside permanently. Like many
others having made their money amidst the
new civilization, they come here to find the
most ways of spending it.
Chicago, Dec. 11. It is not generally-
known that there is a branch of the self
styled orthodox reorganized church of latter
day saints, which violently opposes what it
calls the heterodox church. - This body i
presided over by. Joseph Smith, jr., the son
of him unto whom was "revealed many
things." These Chicago saints assemble
twice every Sunday in a small room at No:
213 Madison street, which on week days is
devoted, to. theritual ef various secret so
cieties, and aiound the walls of whifth the
spiritual exhortations of one and the mys
terious banners of the others are displayed
in glazing contrast. . These saints stand by
the works of Joseph Smith and find in them
what they consider convincing arguments
in condemnation of polygamy. The $pr
vices are much the same as the Methodists,
and are conducted at present by W. H.
Washington, Nov. 11. Springer, of Illi
nois, proposed constitutional amendment
relative to the election of president and
members of congress. It fixes the term of
the president and vice president at six years
and.makes the president ineligible forj the
next succeeding term; abolishes the electo
rial college and provides for a direct vote
for president; every. state shall be entitled
to as many votes as it has senators and rep
resentatives in congress, and the vote of
each state shall be east in proportion to the
popular vote in the state for each candidate.
The term of members of congress is fixed at
thr--e years, and each session shall begin the
first Wednesday in January. In counting
the votes cast for president in joint conven
tion each senator and member shall have
one vote. a -"
Washington, Dec. 1 1. Belmont's indi
vidual report on the Nicaragua canal, which
was reported favorably to the house by-a
majority of the committee in July last, op
poses the bill because it would commit the
United States to guarantee that the annual
net receipts from traffic through the canal
will be less in amount than three per centum
upon the total cost of the canal, and com
pels the secretary of the treasury to annual
ly pay out of the treasury a sum necessary
to make good the undertaking; because it
limits the rights and privileges of the Uni
ted States in the control of the canal, and
because article 51 "of the concession conflicts
with the pledges made under the Clayton
Bulwer treaty.
Washington, Dec. 11. It is quite prob
able a couple of new states may be admitted
and perhaps three. Washington, Dakota
and New Mexico, will make very vigorous
efforts for admission. Already favorable re
ports have been made upon Washington and
Dakota. Their administration will give the
republicans increased strength in the senate
where the majority is so email as to be
quite a serious matter. Representative men
from New Mexico are also here, urging the
admission of that territory, but as its poli
tics are a little uncertain, it .will not prob
ably be successful in its efforts.
Washington, Dec. 11. In the star route
case Merrick said there was a difference of
opinion about the necessity of " the personal
attendance of Dorsey. He believed it un
necessary, but moved that he be compelled
to attend, and backed this motion by an
affidavit of Bliss that Dorsey 'furnished the
articles to the press that he was not able to
attend. - -
Ingersolf said Dorsey incurred a risk of
perpetual blindness by attending. Judge
Wylie held his presence was unnecessary,
but an affection of the eyes did not prevent
his testifying. Milton wrote his Paradise
Lost without sight; and the postmaster
general of England is blind. lngersoll
moved to continue the case for Dorsey;
Judge Wylie directed the jury panel to
be called, and decided the defendants were
entitled to four peremptory challenges for
all of them. The., defence excepted, and
claimed the right , to interrogate the first
juror, Bnrrett. The court denied it unless
it was a direct challenge for cause. Pending
argument the court adjourned.
