Farther Mall Faollltiea.
The Crescent City Ifaahl call attention to
further moll facilities wlilcli arc now required
by the people of that llcinlly, end those upon
the route between Crescent City and Jack
somllle. Since the extension of the Over
land Mall line through to Olympla. the ocean
ttcamcri carry no malls, and those lis lug along
the contt arc made dependent upon Interior
communication with the Overland line fur all
mall matter directed to them. Tli'i Is un
doubtedly a prcat hardship and Injustice, for
.which n remedy should be granted at the
earliest practicable day. The lltralJ pub
lishes a petition to Government which coers
the ease sour ns the route between that point
and this Is concerned, but complete accommo
dation should be gtun to all Interested. A
dajly, or at hiist, n trl-weckly mall Is wanted
'''rind ought to be established from Jacksonville
to Crescent City, tm Williamsburg, Kerb)
title, and Wntdo, with brunches to Althoue
and other considirnblc mining camps. A
cmt-ncchly or wethly mall Is needed equally
between Jacksonville and Scotlsburg, and
other points on or near the coast In Coos,
Curry and Umpqua counties, with branch
routes extending between the principal towns
In each of these counties. The serlcc oxer
most of the routes lat mentioned could be
ndcquitcly ierformed on horsibich, but from
this to Crtwxnt City, It stiuuld bo by stage
or wagons. Our merchants, as well as all
others engaged in trad", In this and Josephine
ruunttes, receive almost, If not nil, their goods
by way of Crescent Clly. It Is therefore essen
tial to them that frequent communication with
that port 1)0 afforded. At present, Ihera Is
only a weekly mail, and those on the roast
must, under the new arrangement, nwnit their
correspondence by Overland service from Han
Francisco. This will soinct lines occasion a
delay to limn of nearly a fortnight In the
transmission of litters, when really the time of
rnriiagc ought never to exceed seven days.
It Is plain that a rimcdy against this provok
ing order of things should bo had speedily.
The nutter rests with the Senators and Heprc
tcntnllvei of Cnllfotii'a and Oregon, In a
Ijniit measure, for If the iuhjcl Is properly
rmntcd to the notice of the Puilmiilrr
General and to Cougrisi, It is qulto linpiml

Nearly three weeks have parsed since the
election, yet nothing like full returns are had
fiom Coos and Curry counties, nlthough only
a little more than a hundred miles off. It
look very much ns If the returns were kept
back for some not altogether correct purpose.
We don't mean to oppugn the Integrity of
the County Clerks of those counties, but It
may well be surpeeted. that where elections nrc
so closely contested ns thsy have been In Ore
gon for two or three yeats past, and the kumc
two counties are always the last to send In
the official returns, there Is something more
than Inattention or accident which governs
the tardiness. We are assured of un Instance
that occurred In a certain county In the con
test of '58, whin two rival candidates run
pretty close together, In which the figures on
the poll returns rent to Salem were made to
give a small majority fur the successful candi
date, when reully the true returns gave a con
siderable majority to tie defeated candidate.
It is Imped that nothing of the kind has since
occurred in the county alluded to, nor In any
other county, but after the commission of one
fraud of this character, suspicion would quite
legitimately rest ngnlnst the county In which
it was practised, II there happened to be un
due and unuectsmry delay In the dispatch of
In the election fur Congressman In June,
Coot and Curry counties were nut Included In
the official rrsult, In conequenec of the returns
not reaching the Capital within the time pre
scribed by law. They gave a majority for the
Democratic candid ite, who had enough voles,
fortunately, to secure his election without the
vote from the di'n'.ory counties. Hut had the
election been close as It was In the preceding
year, Mr. Iogsn won'djinve received the ccr-
Itlicnte or election, noiw iiuilamjiiig Col. Sliiel f
election by the volo of the piiple was appa
rent. In llio contest Just rloscd, had any row
of the Presidential candidates a majority with
the vote of Coos nnd Curry, but without this
been defeated, great outrage would h tve been
perpetrated upon the people of the Slate, and
it might have been, of the Union. Whether
by accident or design, It Is wrong to withhold
or delay the county returns of election, with
out regard to the ulltmatc clflct of such delay
In the result. There li no good excuse fur the
delay, and rma meant should bn taken
to guard against a recurrrnre nf similar iv'ls.
We ore well aware that the people In
the two counties live remote ami scattered,
that the country Is wild and rugged, that com
munlentlon Is Infrequent and d (Tlcult ; yet
traveling through and over the whole region
is nut so hard to necompliih, but that trips
can be made from the most remote pnrtl his of
either Into the chief towns of Douglas and
Umpqua counties within one week, nnd from
these latter x'uts thu returns cuutd Ic
forwarded by mail, ns tho law mi'ilrc. to the
Capital In n few ilits more. If Individuals
can make tin- trip from the least aeccslbte
i portions of Con and Curry counties Into
It"i burg or i:iene City In from seven to
nine days, undoubtedly the rleillun nliirix
cm be forwarded with rqu.il ilispitih. and If
the residents or the officials of those counties
would see that In future these vexations und
sasplclmis ih lays should not occur, they would
'bcllcr suli erve llielr own Inleresls nn.l h'moie
