A writer in the Buffalo Express sug
gtsts a new idea concerning accidental
Presidential vacancies, to theffjVcl,
that in case of such a vacancy the Vice
President fill the office for say thirty
days, with 'limited power, and that the
electors within twenty days convene
and elect another President to finish
the term made vacant.
The Standard of the 29th ult., says:
William Reid, manager of ilie narrow
gau(je railroad, has received telegraphic
instructions from Henry Villard to
proceed without delay to secure the
right of way for that road from Junc
tion City, Lano county, to Portland.
The terminus of this road in King's
valley, Polk county, is to be named
Airlie, after Lord Airlir, the old Pres
ident of this company.
During the past fiscal year there
were taxed at 1 75 per thousand,
567,386,982 cigarettes, netting a reve
nue of $992,922. During the preced
ing fiscal year the revenue was $715,
000 from cigarettes. The injury sus
tained to the nervous system of ciga
rette smokers is not stated, nor the
number given of those languishing in
insane asylums who lost their reison by
excessive use of tobacco and whisky.
The Democrats of New York have
issued a windy address, charging the
Republicans with having obstructed
legislation, caused needles expense,
etc.r in the recent session at Albany.
It won't do them any good. The Re-
Kfifelfcft&ttF TT upYsTsH
during the 'war, and the Democratic
pronunciamento will have no more ef
fect than ono of Jeff Davis' old procla
mations. To tell it in brief, European govern
ments are in a deplorable state of uncer
tainty and uneasiness. England has
the Irish agitation to contend against.
France has the Tunisian war on hand,
and Italy is uneasy about the same.
Austria is taxing her strength to put
down a revolt among her recently ac
quired provinces among the mountains
of Turkey. Germany is suspicious of
France, and at home is troubled with
socialism. Russia is in a state of siege,
caused by Nihilist plots and assassina
tions. Sweden and Norway are be
coming depopulated by emigration to
the United States. And take it all
togethar the European savereignties
are not a happy family of nation?.
The Eastern papers are seemingly
much worried about the tlueatened re
moval of the Chinese students from
American colleges, and seem to regard
as a calamity the disposition of the
Celestial Go eminent to set its face
against progressive ideas. Hie mis
fortune consists in tho fact that the
Chinese are only too willing to adopt
progressive ideas when they are of a
utilitarian character. In a few yoars,
if they keep on, they will havo imbibed
enough progression to make them seri
ous competitors in all classes of man
ufacturing. The only kind of pro
gressive ideas the Chinamen don't take
kindly to aro those relating to govern
ment. The reason is obvious. They
think their system incomparably su
erior to our?. Chinamen will never
A correspondent writing to tho
Chicago Tribune from Glendive, Mont,
300 miles west of Bismarck, furnishes a
splendid description of railroad con
struction along the Northern Pacific.
Tracklaying in the valley of the Yel
lowstone he says was being carried on
at the rate of 1J mile per day. The
great R. R. bridge spauning the Mis
souri at Bismarck is building as rapid
ly as the naturo of the work will ad

for trains to pass over it in less than a

VICC-1'KESIDLXT AHTHIH'S TKADCCEQS.
Guiteau's act seems to have conjured
an evil genius in the minds of some
people, which has sought and found
utterance in a number of papers, both
of the Democratic and Republican
side of the house. It is amazing with
what recklessness some papers are try
ing to connect the name of Vic Presi'
dent Arthur with the attempted as
sassination of President Garfield. Ar
thur's friendship for Conkling has been
distorted into a. conspiracy, and' it is
charged that Guiteau's murderous act
is nothing more than th outgrowth of
the political attitude of Conkling and
Arthur. The utter groundlessness and
heinous wickedness of this charge must
bo apparent 10 every intelligent, un
biased inind. We hope it has not come
to pass in this country that a Senator
or any other man cannot dissent from
the views of the executive, without be
ing daubed a conspirator and a mur
derer. But because Guiteau declared
himself a stalwart," therefore Conkling
and Arthur must be held responsible
i dent's life. As well hold Henry Ward
Beecfier responsible, for Guiteau had
at one time been a member of the
great preacher's church.
There is nothing in the attitude and
conduct of eilher Conkling or Arthur
to justify the implied charges of some
of our cotemporaries. But it is said
that Arthur is a friend of Conkling,
and hence an enemy of the President.
Has not Mr. Arthur a right to be a
friend of Conkling? What possible
wrong can there be in this? And what
has Conkling done that his name should
be infamous, and that he should lay
under the charge of being in con
nivance with the murderer? Where is
there the least evidence that Conkling
(although differing from tho Presi
dent in tho matter of the New York
appointments) cherished any feelings
of personal hatred against the Presi
dent? None, whatever. The unpro
voked, causeless onslaught upon Vice
President Arthur, on the part of some
of the press of the country, is a dis
graceto the whole people. The accusers
should be compelled to furnish proof
or hold their peace forever. And if
there is any shame Mt, we will have
heard the last of the idiotic assertion
that Vice-President.Arthur and Conk
ling are responsible for Guiteau's mur
Orcsoa'nnd California Line.
As preliminary to a through line of
railway to unite Oregon and Califor
nia, the North Pacific Coast Railroad,
beginning on the north side of San
Francisco bay and extending through
Sonoma and Mendocino counties, has
been purchased by parties presumably
in the interest of Mr. Villard. It is
confidently asserted by those who aro
in position which should enable them
to know, that within two years the
Villard syndicate, will have a through
line from Oregon to San Francisco en
tirely independent of the Central Pa
cific system. Ii is supposed that this
road will be constructed nearer the
coast than any line planned hitherto.
Purchase of the North Pacific Coast
road (this name must not be confounded
with the Northern Pacific) indicates a
purpose to establish the line through
the coast counties of California and
Oregon, to a junction with the road now
operating from Portland to Roseburg.
There will be some rugged country
along the route, but most of the way
the lands will bo valuable for cultiva
tion or for timber. Connection hero
with the great northern transcontinent
al system will give a through line from
the east and Chicago that may com
pete with the other transcontinental
roads. Oregonian, August 2d.
Tuc Dead Indian Wagon ICoad.
The so called Dead Indian route from
Ashland to Fort Klamath is between
30 to 35 miles shorter than that by
way of the Soda Springs and Linkville,
and is a much better road. Last fall
a number of the Reservation Indians,
who took this route to come into the
valley to do their trading, cleared it of
the fallen timbers etc. that had ob
structed it the past few years. Since
that time tho road has been traveled
extensively by people going from hero
to the upper Klamath basin. George
Nutley, whose ranch is located at the
eastern end of tho route about six
miles west of the Fort travels this
road altogether, and says it is a plain
wagon road, most of it leading over a
beautiful level country, with plenty of
grass, plenty of water and entirely free
from dust. The road leads through

right in two), leaving Lake-of-the-Woods.

The K. K. Survey.
Surveyor J. A. Hurlburt came up
on Tuesday from Josephine and imme
diately drove to Howard's surveying
line, which had reached a point be
tween Eagle Mills and Wagner creek.
On Wednesday Mr. Hurlburt left for
Portland to report at Railroad head
quarters. The work in Josephine
take3 in all the country between Van
Noy's ferry to Smith river divide. An
easy railroad grade was established
over the Hays hill to Kerbyville.
The Smith river pass, which was sup
posed to present the most difficulties
for a railroad grade, a route of very
easy grade was found with the grade
less than 80 feet to the mile. The
highest elevation found on the Smith
river pass route is only 2,300 feet
above sea level or 2,200 lower than
the stage road pass which height can
be reduced at least 400 feet by runnine
a short tunnel. The work in Jackson
county, which was dpne by J. S. How
ard and party, was brought from the
stage road pass to Wagner creek flat,
on this line was finished on Wednes
day afternoon. The whole distance of
the survey from the tunnel to Wagner
creek flat is 221 miles. The distance
surveyed south of the tunnel to mouth
of Willow creek on Klamath river is
about 23 miles, with ground easy to
work. The entire line through the
Siskiyous, both south and north of the
stage road pass, was run on a tirade of
100 feet to the mile. Besides the
main tunnel there will be four or five
smaller ones. Howard and party are
now in town, but expect to continuo
the survey from Wagner creek through
the valley, in accordance with orders
