The West has much to gain from
the teachings of & tat is tics. , Iowa,
tigorou and ambitious, too young
for despondency, is in a spasm of in
dignation against monopoly and an
excess "of .middlemen, and yet in
trade and transportation she has bnt
eight per cent., or little more than
half the proportion ot the Middle
States. She may hare too many and
too greedy go -betweens, and she
needs justice in the transportation of
her products; but these evils reme
died, the burden of her trouble wil
still remain. The great difficulty ul

per cent, of farmers instend of twenty-five.
Double track railroads, ca

Grunge associations, free trade, and
every other-fancied boon obtained,
she will still remain in comparative
poverty and positive discontent while
she continues to have less than four

in manufacturing and mechanical
industry. History does not point
to a permanently prosperous people
having such a preponderance of pop

Portland CiiHtoni House.
Senator Mitchell has iutroducod a
bill in the Senate appropriating
$100,000 to construct a Custom
House ami a bontlea warehouse in
Portland. . There is no necessity for
this appropriation at this time. The
Custom House at Astoria and the
branch at Portland are amply suffi
cient.ox all practical purposes. Mr
Mitchell would better secure this ap
Dromiaiion for the improvement of
of the Upper Columbia and Willam
ette rivers.- iWe have enough Cus
tom Houses. The revenues collected
through west of them are stolen by
officials to perpetuate them in office
and to support their extravagauce.
