THE OREGON SENTINEL
"Wednesday, ; : January 29, 1879
One of tha early pioneers of Soutt
ern Oregon, -was born in "Western "Vir
ginia in 1824, from whence Lis family
removed to Ohio, -where he spent his
early manhood, afterwards becoming a
citizen of Louisiana. In 1849 Mr.
Hanley was taken with the "gold fev
er" and emigrated early in that year
to California. Striking for the mines
he first tried his luck at "Jackson," in
Amador county, afterwards at Nelson
creek, one of the richest tributaries of
Feather river, where ho realized a
handsome stake which was prudently
saved. Tired of
jntil 1854. In that year Mr. H. vis
ited Rogue Hiver Valley and purchas
ed the donation claims of Clinton and
"Welton, about two miles from Jackson
ville, containing 640 acres, to which he
has added about 700 acres tnore, and
made under his careful management a
princely home. In 185 G he married
Miss Martha Melvina Burnett, eldest
daughter of Col. John S. Burnett, of
Douglas county, an estimable lady, who
has proved a valuable "help meet" and
by whom he has raised a family of six
children. Mr. Hanley is now 54
years of age and a true type of the
western fanner; his energy and probi
ty aro proverbial in this county. Mr.
H. has always been independent in
politics, although a southern man, has
generally acted with the Bepublican
party. He v has always refused office
except once when he accepted and cred
itably filled the position of school di
rector; and has by careful attention to
his own affairs achieved a foremost po
sition among the stock growers and ag
riculturists of Jackson county.

Wo take the following from the Et
na correspondence of the Yreka
In "both the "Union" and "Journal"
)uple of weeks ago, appeared a
ley witli tlie ocean. Although it was
generally read, I do not think the mat
ter received attention from our people
generally which its importance to us
demanded. It is a well understood
fact that we do not raise more farm
produce in Siskiyou than what can be
consumed right here, and if we could
by any means help to create a market
for the surplus of Ilogue -river valley,
other than to Siskiyou county, we
would be sure of reasonable prices for
all wo can raise, which we certainly
dojjetget now, owing to the competi
from Southern Oregon. Of courso wo
are a trifle mad at the Oregonians for
running down the prices, but we can
not in reason blame them for getting
rid of their surplus wherever they see
a chance, and no doubt, in their places
we would do the same thing, and the
matter is to help them to create
some other outlet for their
surplus produce. In this way all parties
would be benefitted, and we would ill
be happy. There is loose money en
ough lying, around in Siskiyou to
build two such roads and it behooves
our farmers to take some action that
will push tho enterprise to a success
-I ABOIT MAIL SERVICE.
One J. D. Carr lias filled tho col
nmns of the S. F. "Chronicle" with
bitter complaints against the 'Post
Office Department and denunciations
of mail contractors in California and
Oregon. 2Ir. Carr's chief cause of
complaint is apparently the exorbitant
price paid for tho mail service between
Redding and Roseburg, but really that
J. D. Carr is not the contractor. This
man Carr was once tho contractor on
this route, being paid two hundred and
twenty five thousand dollars for carry
ing the mails when they were two
thirds lighter than they are now, and
Mr. J. D. Carr made no complaint
The public did complain, however, for
they had good cause, tho mails being
usually twenty-four hours behind time,
and public documents that belonged to
tho people, being delayed or strewn
along the route. Mr. Carr would have
liked the contract again, and he swore
lhat he would have it if it broke him.
His philanthropy stopped right there,
for at the last lettings ho proposed to
carry the mails at 82,000 per annum,,
while the present company wore carry
ing it at 873,000. This was just the
real extent of this man's zeal, and he
may as well be assured that tho pul
Jic are quite satisfied with the manner
in which the present company are car
rying the mails, and that there is no
iau&e of complaint wbatevi

It is with a ridiculous sublimity that
a Democratic journal in Southern Ore
gon comes to the mourner's bench and
in an eloquent and fervid peroration
renews its political vows. It remarks
wisely that "the leopard may change
his spots, the Ethiopean his skin, but
that principles never die." This is
true, but sometimes principles are lost
sight of and forgotten by political or
ganizations. The Democratic party
was once guided by principles that
honest men aonld stand by, but where
are theyl Crushed out of sight by the
despotic heel of its own power! Sinco
war the word 'Demociacy" has
meant anything to win. It has been
all things to all men; everything to ev
ery section. It- wa3 ence national
nartv but it is bo no longer. Jt de-
nds hard money for the soft handed
bondholder, soft roc3j fcr fee hard
handed western fanner, gold for the
i-iu' u:tt money king, (and' "worthless
rags" for the tiller-of the soil. It has
been gracious to the negro voter in
Ohio while bulldozing his colored
brother in Mississippi into political
subjection. It shouts "Vivi la Com
mune" where the commune & strong
frowns on the commune where aristoc
racy is more powerful It fawned at
the feet of Grant and would have wor
shipped him, but the brave soldier de
pised and spurned it It took Sher
man in its arms and would have made
him an idol but the .gallant captain
pierced its disguises and turned away
in contempt. It clung to the Republi
can philosopher, who was crazed by
ambition, as Ruth clung to lfacnit, and
said unto him: "Entreat me not to
leave thee; or to return from following
after thee, for whither thou goest I
will go, and where thou lodgest I will
lodge. Thy people shall bo my people,
thy Uod my Uodr It survived Urcc
ley to join its fortunes to a railror-d
wiecker, clinging to him with a desper
ate strength till he himself was wreck
ed by his own friends, and then cring
ed like Lazarous, at the Presidential
gate and accepted the crumbs flung to
it from the National table. It lay
down with "Beast" Butler, consorted
with a "spoon thief," and wept bitter
tears on his neck when the old man
sorrowed J." or eighteen Jon"
stances, cbangjhgr with locality likt.
the color of the chameleon. It has
simply meant anything for s access, aid
when a journalist professes tins., err j. 3
fidelity to Democratic principles he con
fesses himself the slave of an abstract
idea without the slightest comprenen
sion of its significance. Talking about
principles without an effort to revive
them and lead a party from the bond
age of greedy ambition is only servile
following not independent journal
ism. WILL EXPLAIN.
Tho Democratic journals of Oregon
are still loud in their demands that
Brig. GenT. Ross explain the disap
pearance of about thirteen thousand
dollars worth of commissaryjtores, re
maining unused at the end of the !
doc war. If they will take the trou
ble to refer to the report of Governor
Grover to General Schofield they will
see in whose hands the supplies were
and who gave personal supervision to
all the details of tho commissary and
quartermaster department. If the
correspondents from Jacksonville do
not desire to gel the feet of some of
their friends in a very dangerous L-ap
they will keep quiet on this subject as,
if Gov. Thayer carries out the instruc
tions of the Investigating committee,
the parties who filched the unused
stores can not escape exposure. Brig.
Gen'L Hoss asks no sympathy but de
mands a trial before conviction. If
the captious journals will examine his
report they will ascertain what his
duties were, and if editors, to whom
Grover is the very incarnation of Dem
ocratic principles, will peruse his re
port they will learn some interesting
facts, just about the close of that docu
ment, and if honest in their demands
that the guilty be punished, turn their
attention to some one besides Ross.
There are well recognized -rules
among publishers, one of which is cred
it to the proper source for "clippings."
No gentleman will disregard this rule
but some of our "Willamette exchanges
persistently omit its application. We
have only to say that when a newspa
per man continually copies from one
paper and gives credit to another he
violates both truth and courtesy and
shows a soul so small that when the
last trump sounds all the Angels in
Heaven will fail to find it
A petition is being circulated asking
the Secretary of War to relieve GenL
O. O. Howard from command of the
Dept o the Columbia. It is said to
havo been extensively circulated in the
counties' oa-st of the mountains where
it has received a large-number of signatures..

Editor Seotitiel: Though I am a
Democrat I believe in giving credit
whore credit is due. Our locality has
been estensively settled for many
years, and, notwithstanding this fact,
all efforts hitherto to get a mail route
established to this place havo proven
futile. Last year another trial was
made and the matter entrusted to Sen
ator Mitchell. To our surprise as
well as to our pleasure we had an of
fice established, Senator M. leaving no
stone unturned until our wants were
cared for. When a petition was sent
him to increase the time from a serai
to a tri-vreekly mail ho showed the
same interest as heretofore and the
same was eranted. For his work in
our favor he deserves the lasting

legislature made some important chan
ges in the school law to which we
direct the attention of school clerks.
The law now directs: "That all Or
ganized districts shall hold annual
meetings on the first Monday in
March. It has been made the duty of
the clerk of each district to make out
and transmit to the county Superinten
dent by the first Monday in March a
report of all the children in his district
over four and under twenty years of
age. Neglect to do this will forfeit the
district's share of the public funds.
W. M. Turner is again associated
wifh the OnraoN Sentinel. Last we
knew cf him he sent us word he was
dead and we marked his subscription
paid. That's the way William did

Long connected with the profession
in Oregon we regard this notice as
neither courteous nor witty. William
