THE OREGON SENTINEL
JACKSON VH.L.K i
"Wednesday, : : May 14, 1879
Was born in New York City, Au
gust 16, 1823. In 1825 his father
remoTed trith his family to the City of
Mexico, -where he established himself
in the drug business, remaining only
about one year and returned to New
York and carrying on the samo busi
ness till 1828, -when he removed to
Tioga county, Pensylvania, where Clin
ton got his. raising and served his time
at farming and lumbering, and in 1845
married Miss Jane Walker, his present
wife. Mr. Schiefflin spent a long
time travelling over the West looking
for a location, and finally sailed for
California early in 1852, coming through
the straits of Magellan. In that year
he mined on the Honcut and on Feath
er river, and in July 1853 came to this
4lJkffiSJJrf mind'and heart. 'Wf
vas elected State Treasurer in 1862
and re-elected in 1866 holding that of
fice continuously for eight years, dur
ing which time not a shadow of suspi
cion ever rested upon him for the non
performance of his high trust. He
was noted for frugal industry and unim
peachable business integrity as well as
open handed, warm hearted charity for
every worthy object of misfortune or
distress. He had amassed a large for
tune and, during his latter years, he
enjoyed it, not ostentatiously, but with
liberal, cultivated judgement Mr.
Cooke was a native of New York and
had attained the age of sixty-nine years
when summoned away from the duties
, and cares of life to his eternal rest
A gcod man has gone to return no
more but his name will be held in kind
remembrance by all who knew him.
Especially will his well remembered,
kindly face and fatherly admonition be
treasured by the author of this brief
tribute, for it was he who first greeted
us when, years ago, we entered the
State a stranger and alone and his
generous hand paid us the first dollar
we earned afterasting our lot among
the great hearted people of Oregon.

It is said that the Confederate Con
gress intend to starve the army by
withholding their support What a
glorious victory that would bel To do
that, for which the blood and treasure
of a people were poured on the thirsty
sands of the South in vain were indeed
a triumph. To accomplish that wnich
fire and sword and the torture of Libby
and Andersonville failed toaccomplish,
which with the devilish, frenzied, crys
talized passions of the confederacy fail
ed to do in battle would be to declare
in the face of the whole world that the
millions of noble patriots whose blood
was poured on the altar of liberty died
in vain. But it never will he done.
Our army is only a skeleton, but it
never will be starved, for we believe

OIK KAILHOAD l'KOSrEtTS,
During the brief time ex-Senator
Mitchell remained in town, on last
Thursday wo obtained a hasty recital
of his views on the railroad situation.
His belief is that but a short time will
elapse before the Central Pacific com
pany will be forced, in defence of their
own interests, to complete a line of
road connecting with their main trunk
and running North through Northern
California, Southern Oregon and
through the Willammette valley to
Portland. It is a fact well known that
both the Union Pacific and Central
Pacific companies are jealous of each
other's power. Wherever one has run
out a line of road to operate as a tender
to its main trunk, the other has invar
iably made a counter movement in its
owninterest. And it is to this compe
tition that 'the people of Southern Ore
gon have to look for the only influence
that can cause the Central Pacific, or
any other company, to hasten the com
pletion of a railroad through thejx
y , , -, -r,r
work can be commenced at Portland
and pushed eastward with all the facil
ities required for rapid progress.
The above imperfectly condensed
facts contain briefly the information
we obtained from a few minutes con
versation with our distinguished ex
Senator. He referred also to the Nor
thern Pacific company and expressed
a hope that they might be able to
complete their road within the time
they have given the public reason to
expect that great work done. The cer
tainty of the early completion of either
of the great lines north of this neglect
ed section will, in the opinion of Mr.
Mitchell, be the inauguration, the
speedy construction of a road connect
ing San Francisco with Portland, either
from Winnemucca via Eugene City, or
by the closing of the gap between Read
ing and Roseburg. That the latter
course will be adopted by the Central
Pacific company is assured by the fart
that the line between the present ter
minal points mentioned leads through
one of the richest agricultural and min
eral regions on the coast, while the
route from Winnemucca is mostly
through a desert country.

On the 29th, of April last the Un
ion Telegraph Company filed articles
of incorporation, in the clerk's office in
New York City. The company was
organized with a capital of 10,000,000
100,000 shares of 100 each. Its
corporators are Jay Gould, of New
York, 50,000 shares; David H. Baker,
of New York, 25,000 shares, and
Charles A. Tinker, of Baltimore, 25,-
000 shares. The corporation is to he
gin business May 1st, to continue 100
years. The lines commence in that
city and run through all the States and
most of tho Territories and Canada.
Bates is Superintendent of the Atlan
tic and Pacific lines. Tinker was at
one time in tho war department. When
this great enterprise attains proportions
sufficient to compete with exist "i
corporations, a revolution will take
place in the present system of telegraph
ing. Bob Garrett is always on time with I

A PEACEFUL KETOLXTIO.V.
The people of California are 10 be
congratulated on the accomplishment of
a peaceful and bloodless revolution.
History is full of popnlar struggles
against the oppression of wealth and
power but shows no- such example as
this. Never since the fall of the cruel
Tarquins; never since the day when
the maddened people, frenzied by the
nervous eloquence of the young Icill
ius stripped the purple gown from the
wicked Claudius; never since the hour
when our English ancestors wrung
from an unwilling monarch the charter
of human rights that we now enjoy has
history had a page like this. In one
single day .the people of a great com
monwealth, numbering nearly three
quarters of a million, swept their
whole organic law from the statute
book and replaced it with a new one.
Menaced by power, opposed by a sub
sidized press under the seductive in
fluence of paid oratory, tho yeomanry
of our mtf r fftntf hunt hk,m bacl
vicWHUUs. it (TUH liTbimpie question
whether the middle and poor classes
were to pay the taxes and the wealthy
escape their share of taxation, and it
has been conclusively settled that the
latter class should not escape. This is
one of the victories of peace, a splencM
triumph of popular rights; one that
touched the hollow disguises of power
as those of Satan were touched with the
spear of Ithuriel, and it is an encourag
ing proof of the vitality of our Re
epublican form of government, and the
Grst revolution so radical in its changes
to be recorded in history.
