BOARD OF TRADE.
SPECIAL MEETING, MAY 24, 1870.
A special meeting of the Board of
xraao was Held last evening, ior ine
object of considering the various
commercial iuterests requiring State
legislation, and the course to be pur
sued by the board in urging these
non-political measures upon tue varv
ous candidates in the ditlbrent coun
ties ot the State seeking election to
tho State Legislature, and for similar
Tho board was called to order by
Mr. Goldsmith, vice president, who
stated the object of the meeting.
Reading of minutes'of last regular
meeting was omitted.
. The following preamble and.resolu
tions wero read seriatim ai?d after
considerable discussion, in which
Messrs. Kapus, Green, Gross, Gold
smith, Dekum, and Prindle participa
ted, were adoptep :
Whereas. This board, indepen
dent of political views, recognise the
urgent necessity oi me variuus emu
mercial matters of tho State being
attended to at tho next legislature,
Resolved, and do hereby earnestly
recommend to tho various candidates
in every county seeking election to
tho State Legislature the following
important subjects for their careful
consideration, and request them to in
dicato to tho secretary of tho board
whether or not they are in favor of
the following resolutions :
DIRECT RAILROAD CONNECTION.
To accomplish which tho State
ought legislatively, tor the general
good of ail its citizens and without
exhibiting partiality or prcfcience for
ither one ot the three proposed rail
road routes to the East, unite upon a
general bill giving to whichever rail-
oad company or capitalists as shall
guaranteo to copinience construction
within one year and complete rail
road connection within six years,
whatever State assistance or aid is in
the power and ability of the people
as a State to grant, subject always to
no . discrimination of fares and
freights in any locality in Oregon
over another, and under the iurther
condition that no greater through or
local freights or lares shall bo charg
ed in Oregon than is in operation in
California or elsewhere.
That it is the dutv of the State for
the developement of its various re
sources in Eastern, Southern and
Western Oregon, to undertake like
all other Western States, the immi
gration interests of the country by
appointing a non political board of
immigration with suthuient powers
and a small annual appropriation
from tho legislature to disseminate
information, induce immigrants to
come to Oregon, and while here to
settle them in the various portions of
PILOTAGE AND TOWAGE.
That in view of the fact that tho in
crease ot values ot our agricultural
products depend almost entirely upon
the number of foreign vessels which
yearly enter the Columbia river seek
ing freights, it is of the utmost pecu
niary importance to our farming class
es for the legislature to pass such a
bin ior regulating me puoung uu
lowing charges over the Columbia
river bar as will encourage competi
tion in shinDin!? and induce vessels to
come to Oregon in larger numbers
than at present.
That considering the largo annual
exports of Oregon salmon and the in
crease in the foreign demand, it is to
be regretted that the run ot salmon is
not now so plentiful as in former
years ; that it is therefore the duly of
the State to pass such laws as wM
regul He the seoson, time and mode ol
conducting this enterprise so as to in
crease instead of decrease, as at pres
ent, the flow of silmon into the vari
ous rivers ar.d tributaries of Oregon
Nearly all foreign countries and sis
ter states on the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts pass license and other laws to
protect and develop their internal
trade and commerce, believing that it
is essential for every Slate to foster
and build np within itself mauufactur
ing and commercial enterprises. In
Oregon foreign travelers come from
Calilornia, British Columbia and else
where, selling their goods all over the
State with contributing directly or in
directly one dollar of taxes or revenue
to the State treasury, while merchants
and traders, residents of Oregon, are
compelled by law to pay opoo their
property or goods so oSered lor t ile,
all Slate, county and other taxes, as
well as high rents and other incident
al expenses. It is therefore the duty
of the Statd to equalize taxation so
that such travelers soliciting trde' in
Oregon shall py equally as the resi
dent merchants their proportion or
share of taxes, and thus encourage the
internal commerce of Oregon. This
is best attained by the mode adopted

Washington, May 16, 1876.
There is just now a marked stillness:
in political affairs, much resembling
that deathlike calm which precedes
the most violent storms. -The atti
tude of the great political parties is
like that of a couple of tigers about
to engsge in deadly combat. Both
orouched upon the.ground with glar
ing eyes, eaoh frame quivering with
Intense emotion and each ready and
anxious upon the slightest movement
of the other to make the deadly
spring. That this will be one ot the
warmest political contests that has
ever been waged in this country I

them to report at once.
It is a singular fact that there never
was such a number ot aspirants for
tho Presidential nomination, and such
a diversity ot opinion among the
"knowing ones" as to who will be the
man. iilaine seems Co be at prouent
the favorite of the Republicans, and
Thurman that ol the Democrats. The
Boston Watchman says the better
sentiment of tho people will control
the' National Darties. or it will create
an independent party to execute its
will. The independent voters are no
longer helpless ; they hold the balance
r nower and will support no man for
office whose character is blemished
even by suspicion. If the latter part
of this be true the Democratic party
may feel assured of the support ot.the
independent element, tor as tilings at
present appear tho Republican ranks

The New Connecticut Sonator.
The lion. William II. Barnum,
who will be the next United States
Senator from Connecticut, to fill Fer
ry's unexpired term (Ferry died
about a year ago,) which ends March
3, 1879, is Treasurer of tho Demo
emtio Congressional Committee, and
a member ot tho National Democrat
ic Committee, has Served his State
in Bcveral Congresses, and has done
more, perhaps, to develop the iron
and railroad interests ot Connecticut
than any other man. Ho is an able,
enterprising business man, is Presi
dent and ouo of tho principal owners
ol the Connecticut and Western Rail
road, and is also largely iuterested in
a number ol iron mines in his State.
Mr. Barnum is a much younger,
stronger and more active man than
Hon. James K English, his compel!
lor. He is. also, a man ot excellent
judgment and greai energy; and,
through the possession ol these quail
ties, he has become wealthy.
Tho correspondent of the New
York Tdcnram (published from the
Herald office on Sundays) has the fol
lowing bit of gossip which is interest
ing' in this quarter :
"If you desire, on certain evenings,
to see certain Congressmen, you will
do well to call at the rooms ot Repre
sentative Luttrell, of California.
There you find some twenty or twenty-five
Democratio members drawing
inspiration for an exchange of start
ling political doctrines from a huge
punch bowl in tho middle of the
room, 'round which they are seated.
Injustice to Representative Luttrell
it should be stated that it is the unan
imous opinion of the Democrat of
the House that both the punch and
the jokes to which be treats them on
these hospitable evenings arogood."
It was the saying of a wise man,
when his attention was called to any
thing that had a smacking of scandal
in it : "I have so much to do that I
can not hear it. One-half my time is
taken np with my own business, the
other halt with letting alone that of
my neighbors." How many excel
lent opportunities of letting alone
other beople'i business are slighted,
and the world is troubled with the
interferences of people with what
does not concern them. Neighbor
hoods are driven crazy by the reports
of idlo or vicious people who watch
for occasions for scandal, and lose no
opportunity of making it public, re
gardless of its truth, or of the injury
it inflicts upon the feelings of others.
Gossip passes lor fact and surmise
. ' A. II. Stephens of Georgia.'
This gentleman, who has been ait
invalid for years, and at times report
ed on tho vorgo of the grave) still sur
vives, though - bed ridden, and is
thought by his friends to be lest seri
ously ill than he imagines himself to
be. A gentleman writing to the Co
lumbus (Ga.l Times, under date of tho
3rd iust, had beon on a Visit to the
distinguished gentleman, and express,
es the belief that it his spirits were
rallied his life might be spared for use
fulness for a number of years to come;
but Stephens has made up his mind
that his end is approaching, and is
rathor desirous to depart than linger
in a world wliero he has so long suffer
ed from physical disease and mental
anguish. His time is completely de
voted to preparation for tho future
lifo, which he declares has no terror
for him, and in this depressed state of
mind it is impossible to. bring to him
any comfort. In alluding to the gen
tleman's hypoohobin, the author above)
roferred to says: ' "1 can but think
that if Mr. Stephens had the same
faith or hope ot bis reoovory as the
doctor and his other friends have, it
would bo in his favor; but as ha
seems to have so little laith, himself
in his own recovery, I think that it
works much against ' him, While
then, I still hope that ha will soon
again bo on a deoidodly 'rising
ground, and may finally recover, oa

given, I can but fear that we may all
yet be dissappoinlod. . . . .
