Tom Merry in Sunday Oregonlan.1
Dave Logan will not he on the train
either, but there will Ixt many who will
recall the Pioneer lawyer and long for
the sound of his voice which could
roune men from their lothargy and
make them heroio at heart if not in
action. The great advocate of our
yearly courts has Iron at rust nearly
ten years and neither chancery argu
ments nor nisi prim causes dUturb
him in the long and blessed sleep of
the dwellers in Cod's acre. All sordid
ambitions buried beside him, all vain
dreams of worldly pride forever ca:it
away, he sleeps with his face to the
rising sun while the army of progress
marches westward, not with tho slow
and measured steps of our early set
tlers, but with the iron steed looping
from mountain to plain, comparing
more miles in an hour than hn did in a
day. So it is, and so if shall lie. The
old must give way to the new and the
great world moves on steadily, while
those who founded our civilization and
paved the way for our enlistment as a
people, are gathered to reKt. So shall
we all rest when "life's fitful fever" is
ended and tho long night of eternity
obliterates the aches of time.
Perhaps Farmer Cray, of the Klas
kanine, will be on the train, old and
white in tho service, though not weary
in good works. But the wife he loved,
who crosnnd the desert by bis side forty
years ago, will not be with him there.
Among the women of that heroic age,
who cheered men in their work of hew
ing down the wilderness, her name
holds high stat'on and favored place.
She lived not merely to behold tho land
of promise from afar off with the trus
ty eyes of faith, but saw it face to face.
Children were born t her in the wil
derness she had helped to convert into
a garden; and with life's full cycle com
plete in its work, with no duty shirked
and no hope unful611ed, she passed on
ward and upward to the reward of the
just. As tho tram shall pass over
scenes that were once familiar but have
been transformed by the softening
hand of incessant civilivation, how the
old man's thoughts will recur to the
days whon they crossed the plains to
the distant Oregon, which had already
inspired a poet's verse. In the solitary
pathway of his twilight years her loving
spirit unseen shall guida his steps
aright; and as in the journey of old
never grow weary by her side, so shall
tho journey to her side be shorn of its
terrors by the memory of her life-long
And the train shall go out without
tho old field marshal of Oregon's civili
zation, the stalwart old Governor of
her territorial days. It would have
been a grand thing for the pioneers to
have taken pure minded old Joseph
Lane back with thnm and called their
Fabius Maximus to marshal them into
line in the streets of some city like St.
Paul that has grown up from a wilder
ness since they left the father of waters
behind them. Cut providence has de
creed they should part company with the
grandest bas relief in Oregon's history,
tho austere old hero of Buena Vista,
whoso life story reads to us more like
one of Macaulav's "Lavs of Ancient
Rome" than that of any man of the
last half of tho century on these west
ern shores. How the old warrior could
have risen to the occasion, had he been
permitted to Itehold the triumphant
hour when Oregon's long separation
from the rest of the world has ended.
How he could have drawn his tall
figure to its full height and, in his
homely and forcible languago, welcomed
the auspicious event in syllables preg
nant with meaning and solid truth.
But the divine wisdom had ordered
otherwise; and while his gallant spirit,
unseen, shall float aliove tlm men and
women of Oregon on their triumphal
journey eastward, his earthly fabric is
commingled with the soil of the State
l.o lorvwl and rents near the wife be
So let the train make up for the
journey, in sight of the nountams
which they were' so slow to cross in
days of yow,. but which it shall span
with the single stride of a giant rejoic
ing to run his course. Let the palaoe
sleeping car take the place of tho old
wagons which were piled along the
dusty plains of Umatilla and the rocky
banks of Snako river. Let tho iron
horse, with his shriek of rude exulta.
tion, supplant the jaded steers that,
with tottering steps and lolling tongues,'
dragged tho old guard of progress
along the toilsome march of years that
were full of great people's hopes-
hopes, too, that havo been more than
realized. Let the dining room car
with its colored waiters and printed'
bill of fare, usurp the camp fire where
"Won straight" and coffee without
milk constituted the immigrants only
fare. For the old order of things must
give way to the new, even as old men'
must relinquish the burden of life and
give place to stouter hands and younger
The listless British tourist who may
be taking his after breakfast prome
nade at the St. Paul depot in the
morning that the train of Oregon pion
eers reaches that city will simply see
five or six hundred elderly men and'
women, and perhaps half that number.
He will see them dressed in plain at
tire, avoiding the silks of one sex and
the broidcloths of the other. He will
perhaps overhear them express them-'
selves in the same language h) speaks '
himself, and wonder whence came these
plainly dressed and observant old peo
ple. He will not recognize in them
the stublwrn and. unfaltering fiber that
2C0 years ago planted the standard of
civil and religious liberty upon the
steril shores to Plymouth; he will not re
cognize in them the great and vital ex
ponents of American pluck that has
been persistontly "moving out" west
for upwards of two centuries; nor will
he recognizo in thorn a few of the sur
vivors of the era ef "51-40 or fight,"
whose antagonism to the cross wrought
mantle of St. George led to the famous
negotiations between the scholarly
Webster and tho courtly Ashburton, by
which Oregon became a part and par
cel of the Great Republic, But such
Then bring up the big gun and load
her to the muzzle and let's give the
blessed old fogies a good send-off. Bring
out the big bnss drum and fotch on the
roan with the red face who blows the
big brass horn as big as a steamship's
smokestack. Oregon pioneers, having
civilized the wilderness, now go east to
let the eastern folks see that there are
a few plain peoplo left yet, people who
live for comfort and regard external
appearances as secondary considera
tions. Throw tho old slipper of good
luck after the train as it whirls out of
the depot and bid the fathers and
mo:hers of our beautiful State God
speedl Send them across the plains in
safety and may they all be spared for a
kindly greeting home again.
Brothers in the old States where
they first saw the light, treat our old
folks well while they are among you,
and send them back right side up. They
are all we have now. The old wagon
has long since broke down and rotted
away, the old ox team has boon slaugh
tered, and the boots made from their
hides are worn out; the old saddle
mule has lain down for the lost time
in the clover patch, where the cockle
burrlisease from troubling and the
weary are at rest; and the old brown
dog that jogged wearily under the
wagon by day and barked at the wolvea
by night, lies buried behind the barn.
The only thing that is left of that soul-
stirring era is the old pioneer himself..
He's not as burly so he used to ls
and his once burly shoulders are
already bowed with age. He is all
that Oregon now has left to remind her
of the severe travail by which she was
born into the sisterhood of States, and
she implores you to treat him well for
