SHO 17 LD BE RE VISED.
It goes without saying that ses
sions of the circuit court should be
held in this county oftener than
twice a year. Conditions with
this regard are not, by any means,
what they were twenty years ago.
The system as it now stands is a
relic of the past generation and an
expensive arrangements to all con
cerned. Litigants are over-taxed
by it; the public expense account
is in many cases just about doub
led. Equity suits are dragged
along by the year to the great ex
pense and annoyance of clients as
well as attorneys; while the ex
treme volumes of public business
which accumulate through a dura
tion of six months in the midst of
an active populace such as ours
must necessarily double up the
expense where it takes so long to
dispose of them when court comes
m session : ana especially so
when a good share of the cases are
criminal, and witnesses, jurors, etc,
are detained on pay during the
process of clearing away a Ion
. drawn docket.
It is understood a bill will be
introduced in the legislature if it
has not already been, providing
for three terms of court a year for
Benton county. 1 he measure can
not be gotten m operation any
too soon. Other districts have
already caught onto the change in
keeping with the times. A bill is
now before the legislature for the
readjustment of the third district
and providing for terms of court
in the various counties as follows:
.Linn county second Monday in
March, fourth Monday in June,
second Monday in November;
Marion, second Mondays in Octo
ber, February and June; Polk, sec
ond Mondays in January, May and
September; Yamhill, fourth Mon
days in January, May and Sep
tember; Tillamook, fourth Mon
days in April and October.
FREE TRADE BROUGHT HOME.
To carry on an election, or to
spite the manufacturers, or to dis
criminate against the north, or
New Eugland or Pennsylvania,
the average democrat is a free
trader; but when it comes to 'ap
plying the doctrine to his own
section, or city, or industry, lie
crawfishes, as the boys say. In
stances by the score could be cited
duly showing the intense selfish
ness, dishonesty and falsehood of
the average democratic free trade
sleight of hand performer. An
instance or two appended are
of a kind with many.
For example : The solid south
talks free trade through the nose
from January to December, but
when it controls congress it takes
the duty from cotton ties, a highly
finished product of steel made in
the north and used exclusively in
the south, but keeps the duty on
the raw material because it is
largely produced in the south. It
buries in hopeless pigeon holes
the free coal andiron bills of its
New England allies.
And here is another example,

soon see: The Troy N. Y. Press,
democratic to the backbone, be
gins to fear for the great linen
collar industry of that city, and

poor for the exclusive profit of
those who are already rich,1" it
"A material reduction in duty upon
linen collars would ba decidedly detri
mental to thousands of working girls and
women. It would mean lower wages and
cheaper living for the operatives, and
smaller sales for tho merchants, grocers,
butchers, milliners and the like who share,
their patronage. - It would be a decided
loss to Troj,, and to none more than the
- working classes of this city. The rich
manufacturers might live as well as they
do to-day; they are not the ones who would
feci the pinch of lower duties. Mr. Shear
man is monstrously mistaken in his assump

he may be right in regard to certain non
Why, to be sure, uouid any
republican protectionist draw the
lines any sharper than that ? The
republican tariff, be it remembered,
makes non-competitive imports
(except luxuries) free of duty.
But democratic policy tries to" fit
the tariff to democratic backs.
And so it will go all along the
line. Jfree trade promises are
good enough until after election,
but when they begin to gore the
democratic ox there is a wild,

The record of prosperity stated
so concisely and forcibly in Presi
dent Harrison's message is sus
tained by the non-partisan reports
of the great commercial agencies.
Bradstreet's and R. G. Dun & Co's
at the close of the year.
Both report that the year 1892
has been the most prosperous m
the history of the country. The
full volume of business- has been
. t , .i
aoout iu per ceni greater man
that of 1891. Agriculture, manu:
facttires, mining, transportation
and trade have all prospered and
labor has never before been so
well employed or at such good wa
ges: All this has made goods
abundant and prices lower. Even
foreign commerce, which tariff re
formers said would be ruined by
the McKinley bill, has been larger
than ever before, and has shown a
balance of trade in our favor (that
is, an excess of exports over im
ports of merchants) of some $70,
000,000 for the year. The only
weak spot has been in the iron
trade, in which production has
outrun consumption on both sides
the water, and in which the re
duced duties of the McKinley tar
iff have invited increasing impor
tations. The decline in mercantile fail
ures is a good test of the general
thrift. They were 17 per cent,
less than in 1891, and the liabili
ties decreased 44 per cent. Or in
other terms, only one in every 113
traders in the United States suc
cumbed in 1892, as against one in
every 93 in 1891 and in every 102 in
1890. The average liability of the
failures in the last year was $11,
000, being the lowest average re
ported since 1878.
In view of this happy condi
tion, it seems almost incredible
that there could have been any
such general discontent as to
cause the people to vote for an in
dustrial revolution. But by hook
and by crook the reactionaries will
come into power. It remains to
seen what they will do, but they
cannot escape the fact and the re
sponsibility stated in the closing
sentences of President Harrison's
message: "ihere are no near
frontiers to our possible develop
ment. Retrogression would be a
Tue universal motto of Eastern
Oregon is "A long pull, a strong
pull and. a pull altogether" for an
open river from the sea to the in
land empire. Their zeal is well
directed ana tneir motives com
mendable. There efforts should
be seconded by every citizen of
the state who believes
fair fplay and a decent chance for
their lives on behalf of all men
and communities. Eastern Ore
gon has never had such a chance.
She has "been throttled, hampered
and overborne by outrageous fright
tariffs levied bv monopolists to the
last notch of what her resources
would bear, and it would be the
manly thing for the state to help
her out of the clutches of the un
conscionable ' skinflints if it can
reasonably be done. A portage
road at the dalles of the Columbia
would help them out wonderfully
and state aid toward securing such
improvement is what they are ask
ing for. The wheat product of the
inland empire is annually 25,000,-
UUU bushels, while its possible out
put is estimated at 260,000,000
bushels per annum, and the most
conservative estimate that in five
years, when the river is opened
and the Nicaragua canal com
pleted, the wheat product of one
year will- amount to sufficient to
build the Nicaragua canal and pay
every dollar of cost for an open
The dreaded fogs which have
hung on so tediously and disagree
able this winter are prevalent to
an unsual extent all along the
principal water-ways of the state.
Recently the dense bank which
enveloped the Columbia and lower
Willamette rivers has been the
cause of considerable damage to
water craft in that section. The
other day the steamer Telephone
nearly collided with a large ship
lyiug in the stream opposite the
elevator in Portland, and in get
ting clear of the 6hip the steamer
backed into tha Ocean Wave, a
sidewheeler lying at the boneyard.
The latter steamer had a hole
knocked in her pilot house, and
the Telephone's wheelhouse was
damaged so much that she had to
be towed - back to her dock. On
the same morning the steamer
Kellogg hit a snag near Caples,
Wash., and had to be beached to
keep her from sinking. Both
boats were badly damaged.
Tub Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
with all its ability, is also pretty
much ot a stormer. It is having
as "fussy" a time with the legisla
tors of Washington, trying to keep
them in line on the senatorial
question, as an old hen with a
brood of young ducks at a mill
pond. People somehow don't
wallop into partisan lines like
they, used to do good naturedly,
even at the crack of the lash of a
great newspaper. . -
REST FROM MS LIBORS.
The death of Rev. T. F. Camp
bell at his home in Monmouth on
the 17th iust. ends a life of unsual
activity, and his labors upon the
most exalted plane of life has
brought upon his name the bless
ings of many people. Mr. Camp
bell had been in tailing health for
some months. Still he delivered
the . usual Sunday . sermon two
weeks before his death. Few
lives have been fuller ot activity
and usefulness than his, and his
history is closely connected with
that of the churches and schools
of this and other states.
Among the important positions
he has held may be mentioned
t he presidency of three schools
an academy in Texas, a university
at Canton, Missouri, and the col
lege at Monmouth. He was presi
dent of the latter school from 1869
to 1882, and it is indebted to him
for its present prosperous condi
tion probably more than to any
other man. He was at one time
a probate judge in Montana, and
was the first superintendent or
public instruction of that territory.
During his active lile he delivered
many popular lectures on various
religious topics, which have since
been published in two volumes.
At the time of his demise Mr.
Campbell was a pastor of-the
Christian church at Monmouth.
He was born in- Louisiana, May 22
1822, his parents being of Scotch
decent, the characteristics of which
sturdy race have distinguished his
long and active life. He was a
DUDil of the great Alexander
Campbell, whose cousin he . mar
ried. There were six children by
his first marriage, three of whom
are living President P. L. Camp
bell, of the state normal at Mon
mouth; A. F. Campbell, a leading
Portland Attorney; and Dr. A. P.
Campbell, of Denver, Colorado.
In 1885 he married Miss Mary
Stump, of Monmouth, who with
three children survive him. With
his death the Christian church
loses one of its leading ministers
and the cause of education a warm
friend and supporter.
OUT OF WORK IN LONDON. .
It is estimated that 100,000 men
aro out of work in London, and
that 300,000 women and children
dependent upon them are on the
brink of starvation.
The men have issued a mani
festo in which they give the main
cause as "Continued strikes in all
trades during the last three years,
which have driven tons of ship
ping into the hands of foreigners,
displaced twenty thousand men,
cost the workmen of London $4,
760,000 in wages alone, and prov
ed the greatest curse that ever
Commenting upon this the Irish
World says with fine sarcasm:
''Why we thought it was only a
protective tariff that caused strikes,
and that free trade meant constant
employment, good wages, and gen
eral prosperity. Evidently there
has been a mistake somewhere.
Somebody has been misinformed."
The Salem papers are out with
sharp sticks after the committee
who investigated the insane asy
lum scandal, for the report it
made. Those brethren should
calm their ruffled tempers. That
report, to unprejudiced readers
on the outside, was noteworthy
for its unbiased tone, speaking in
straight forward terms the faults,
when faults were found, and exon
erating where groundless accusa
tions had been made. Let our
neighbors dry .their tears for the
"lair name of Oregon." When
any "iair name" gets into a situa
tion that it can't bear the light of
honest scrutiny, it had best be
taken in out of the wet.
When the town of Grant's Pass
was laid out the brainy proprietor
reserved a hundred foot strip all
around it as a sort of wall which
prevented the laying out of ad
ditions. This has remained pri
vate property to this time," except
when it has " been pierced , by
streets here and there, and it has
now, of course, become valuable,
but the city must . have outlets
across , it as extensions of certain
streets. How to get it without
paying the owner full price for his
property is now troubling the city
council. Ex. ' ;
At an adjourned meeting of the
council Monday evening . Mayor
Burnett, as usual, swedged in his
vetoing power l'ernenst the $50,
000 tond authorization, and the
council just as usual passed the
ordinance over his dissenting man
date. There will be an under
standing reached between the ex
ecutive., and r legislative branches
fef our municipal dynasty, if
thing keeps on.
The death of justice L. Q. C.
Lamar, of the United States Su
preme Court, removes another star
from the constellation of Amencan
statesmanship. He died the 2 2d
instant at Macon, Georgia, whith
er he had gone in qnest of "bal ter
health. " -

DI VISION NOT AD VISABL&
Corvallis Ore., Jan. 25th, 1893.
Editor Gazette : Speaking of
county division, and the attention
it is receiving through the local
press, kindly allow me space for a
few words on the subject. ' Cor
vallis Times of January 24. con
tains some communications - 1
should like to notice a little.
"John Henry" in The Times
indicates that the people of Alsea
have lo some extent signed a pe
tition for Blaine county fearing
a worse fate would overtake them,
as it is expressed in his article.
That the distance and inconven
ience of traveling between Monroe
and Alsea would be less than
that of t raveling from Alsea to
a county seat at or near the coast.
Mr. George A. Houck in the same
paper in an article on that subject
also mentions the -same reason as
a good one why citizens along the
Alsea should favor a division on
the south rather than on the west.
Mr. Henry says they would rather
remain as they now are but of the
two evils prefer the lesser and
hence go for the 'Blaine division.
With a road from Alsea valley to
Toledo the distance and inconven
ience of traveling from Alsea to
the county seat, it seems to me,
would be in favor of a division
along the summit on the west; for
the distance, as I am informed, is
only about 14 miles and the road
would not be a bad one, and it
would undoubtedly be built. It
will be built any way at a dale
not far distant. Persons in con
sidering the capabilities of a
country ought to look into its fu
ture .possibilities as well as its
present conditions; and what ap
plies to the Alsea valley as to its
juxtaposition to a possible county
seat also applies much more strong
ly to Tidewater and Lower Alsea,
which is a very important section
of Benton county. Persons who
come to the county seat irom Low
er Alsea and lidewater, now come
by way of Yaquina and the Oregon
Pacific railroad. If the county
seat was at loledo, Xaquina or
Newport they would be much near
er home than by having a county
seat at Monroe. But Junction City, j
in the event of a division for Blaine
county, would undoubtedly claim!
the county seat, and I think no
reasonable person would doubt
that Junction City would get it.
In the same issue of the Times
Alta, from Elk City, says that it is
to the interest of every body west
of Summit to divide the county,
mentioning also some of the incon
veniences citizens in those pre
cincts west of Summit are subject
ed to by reason of distance from
the county seat. Certainly with a
county seat at Toledo it would be
easier and cheaper tor a resident of
Elk City twelve miles away to go
to the county seat. His railroad
fare would not be over fifty cents
if he went by rail, and if he went
by his own boat, as probably most
residents do and will continue to
do, it would cost him nothing.
But notwithstanding its relative
convenience to some portions
of that country contiguous to
the proposed new county seat, it is
a fact that a good many, probably
a large majority of the taxpayers
throughout both proposed new
counties, those who sustain the gov
ernment, are decidedly opposed to
any division. For instance, Little
Elk sent a remonstrance to the leg
islature against division signed by
names representing two-thirds of
the property of that precinct, and
all ot the arguments which apply
to the other Bay precincts will ap
ply to Little Elk.
Now to address some remarks to
Mr. Houck's article in the Corvallis
Times. He says Blaine county
could be run proportionally cheap
er than the older counties, for rea
sons, "that there would be no ex
pensive bridges to build." To get
out of their own county thev
would have to cross some -, expen
sive bridges, but they don't want
to hely pay for them. That looks
a little selfish. That the portion
desiring a division have helped - to
build a new court house and that
they have done their share to
wards paying for it, that is the first
line lTiave heard or seen relating
w mac suDject. There has ; been
no argument of that kind used by
any one, to my knowledge, in ob
taining names to any remonstrance
on division, and I am pretty well
posted on the subject of remons
trances. That is not the motive
power nor any part of it behind
the remonstrance sent by Benton
county taxpayers to the legislature
of Oregon against dividing Benton
county. No one has used any
arguments regarding the prosper
ity of Eugene or Corvallis io my
knowledge, in this connection with
reference td their "educational t
dustries'' or their - "factories."
Educational advantages can only
be obtained by any. community
when ,that community furnishes
the support and inducements ,,nec
to carry it on and to locate it there.
To be sure as is stated in the arti
cle, "there are people who could
be induced to start private schools
in their midst if the proper in
ducements are - offered." The
ALSO HEADQUARTERS FOR
SPRAY PUnPS. ETC.
Catholic church is always ready to
establish schools; so also with
other christian denominations here
in Oregon and elsewhere in Amer
ica, if proper inducements were
offered. "Proper inducements"
generally means laud and money
enough to establish the school and
a good share in the necessary out
lay incident to the . school each
year. The Catholic church, how
ever, is far in advance of any other
denomination in that respect, and
I think there is considerable force
in the argument elucidated in the
article under consideration on the
subject of educational advantages,
and "Educational industries."
That "they will not let us go be
cause we pay too much taxes" is
news to this part of Benton coun
ty. There has been no such ar
gument used here that I know of.
Now with relerence to the real
issue involved in this question: In
dependently of any consideration
such as county seat probabilities,
real estate moves, county official
ambition, or personal or sectional
animosity or jealousy, 1 believe it
is the single purpose of every man
who signed any remonstrance to
the division of Benton' county,
simply to preserve the county and
its interests, and consequently
their interests, from a great danger
of losing prestige as a county and
of losing the ability to cany on
the county government at the
minimum of expense and- conse
quently at the minimum of taxa
tion to all. The more counties we
have the more the cost of govern
ing them. There is no doubt of
that. It the officials who are elect
ed to administer the government
of counties are ndt capable of do
ing it to the best interests of the
counties, then the thing for the
people to do is to elect officials who
can do it. There is one thing cer
taiuand that is that men who are
successful in private life, and the
administration of their own anairs,
are better men to have in charge of
public affairs than men who are in
competent to handle successfully
their private business. There can
not be urged against any of the per
sons intrusted with the functions of
government in Benton county, any
of such objections nor has there
been any such suggestion.. But
that is where the protection to the
iuterests of property owners is. to be
found, aud instead of endeavoring
to divide up the territory and cre
ating additional burdens to an al
ready tax ridden people the wiser
eourse might be to try to better
our laws and keep men in power
who would enforce those laws.
I do not sign my name for two
reasons; first I do not want any
newspaper notoriety; secondly I
am of the opinion that any cause
that cannot stand on .its own mer
its ought not to be bolstered up
nor attempted to be, by reason of
this or that person advocating it.
HOXEY LAKE VALLEY.
In the California . Illustrated
Magazine for January appears an
interesting article, descriptive of
Honey Lake Valley, from the pen
of Con. N. Peterson. Various
plates illustrate the description
with views of the valley in various
aspects of natural situation, - its
towns and trade centers, industries,
enterprises, etc. Irrigation is the
one great improvement that is
carried forward upon a system
atic basis and .' bids' fair to make
its sunny vales blossom . as the
rose ; though for that matter, if
the sketches of it referred to are
anywhere near accurate, Honey
Lake is already a veritable pari
dise, as it nestles in placid beauty
in the picturesque shadows of the
mountain - monarchs .which' sur
round it. The valley is settling
rapidly. The land is taken from
the1 government under the "desert
act." A company is at the head
of the irrigation scheme, under
which each locator has his choice
of paying $6.25 per acre in money
or working out the amount on
the irrigation improvements to se
cure for' his lands a perpetual
water right. Hundreds of people
are so employed, and making for
themselves and families handsome
dwelling places. The project has
already reclaimed a million and
a quarter acres of the public do
main, from a sage-brush plain
to a community of fertile farms
and lovely homes and . flourishing
