This is tho name of the new daily
paper which is to be published in Port
land and which will issue its Grst num
ber next Monday. This paper begins
its existence under the most promising
auspices. Not to mention the capital
By which it is supported no inconsid
erable item by the way the paper will
be conducted by gentlemen of great en
terprise and ability, and well schooled
in the news paper buisness. It will
begin with a large subscription list and
plenty of advertisements. But one
of the greatest advantages which it
will enjoy is, that if it is conducted, in
the manner which the character cf the
gentlemen connected with it gives
promise, it will, in real truth, fill a long
felt want. The "Republican of this
State want and need at leading paper.
lxJH, upright, UonnrpMp,. nufsprVon,
independent, progressive, Eepubhcan
news paper. A paper that will labor
for the true interests of Oregon,
and" the great Northwest, and will in
dependently represent the best Re
publican pentiraent of tho State. A
paper that will help to harmonize tho
party, assist in lifting it up into high
er and better fields of usefulness, and
in leading it to battle, if possible,, to
success; and that too, not because of
any hope of reward or fear of punish
ment, but from an honest conviction
that the triumph of tho party is the
best for the state and the nation. A
paper that docs not shape its course in
the interest of personal and selfish ends
or debase its columns to the satiat
ing of individual malice. If the
Northwest News blmll prove to be
such a paper, and we hope and believe
it will, there can bo no question as to
its 8USC0S3. Such a paper deserves to
buceed anywhere; and the measure of
its success in this State will, we are
iure, greatly surpass the expectations
of its founders.
Langtry, as a news paper nuisance
promises to rival a certain celebrated
anti-rheumatic oil and a widely known
patent medicine woman. Every paper
one picks up is filled with accounts of
Mrs. Ilangtry, Mrs. Labouchere and a
soft pateddutchman who, if he had not
more money than brains, would be
working for a dollar a day and board
and glad to get that too. One moment,
the wire? are trembling with the'ttston
ishing intelligence that this young
dutchman has actually written his
name on the register of the same hotel
at which Mrs. Langtry is stopping.
This is succeeded by the blood curd
ling announcement that Langtry and
the dutchman had breakfast alone to
gather at precisely one o'clock. Out
here we would call it dinner, but the
dispatch says breakfast and breakfast
it is. No sooner has the country be
come reconciled to this terrible calami
ty, and settled down to something like
its accustomed tranquility, than the
telegraph tells a terrible tale of how
these two people actually got into a
carriage together behind a span of
spirited bays. Now if they had only
got in beforo the bays, or if the bays
hud been dispirited, or if they hand'nt
been bays at all, but had been blues or
greens or yellows instead, or had'nt
been a pair or but the situation be
comes quite to terribly awful for con
templation. "We are pursuaded that
the country is in a desperate condition
but can st'o no possible means of relief.
It is a pity though, that tho good peo
ple of Massachusetts cannot pen up
their lunatics and not let them follow"
this lady around , like a crowd of
urchins after an elephant.
Tho post office appropriation

The Senate for the past week has
been engaged in the discussion of the
civil service reform bill. On Saturday
last an adjournment was effected until
Wednesday when the bill, by agree
ment, was to be taken up and disposed
of. , There is very little doubt of its
passage and this, or some similar bill
trill surely soon become a law.
Senator Edmonds has introduced
another bill to prevc'nt political assess
ment. The discussions upon the civil service
billhas been rather bitter at times- and
has been marked by an exhibition of a
great deal more political feeling than
the character of the measure seemed to
oall for; but it has been particularly
interesting as showing that tho senti
ment of the country on this question
is beginning to be better understood.
Though much of this discussion beems
out of place and unnecessary it may
rssult'iu securing more general and
careful examination of the subject and
assist in strengthening that moral sen
timent which will insure the enforce
ment of the law after it shall have

you Oscar! There had got to be too

of the inexpressible. m As it is, we can
only emit an aesthetic sigh and sadly

Notwithstanding the multitude of
predictions to the contrary. DeLesseps
appears likely to succeed in his Panama
canal scheme. The larges dredger ever
"built in the world was. recently
launched at Philadelphia having been
built especially for use in construct
ing the canal. The loud and oft re
peated assertions that this canal will
never be built sounds very like -what
was said about the Suez canal and
seems to make about as much impress
ion upon the enterprising old French
man. BeLesseps, in his way, is the
greatest man of this age, and his repu
tation1 is written in much more substan
tial characters than press dispatches
or newspaper editorials. '
The secret reason why the Riddle
berger McCarty duel did not come ofF
has at last leaked out and has sadly
spoild the high moral aspect of the af
fair. McCarty is a dead shot and
would be almost sure to kill his adver
sary, Mabone says he has had hard
work to carry Virginia and get Rid
dleberger elected and he does not now
propose to have a vacancy created by
McCartys bullet. He accordingly ex
ercised his influence upon the firey
Virginia Senator, assuring him that
he had not the slightest objection to
his being killed as an individual, but
that as a Senator lie could not possibly
spare him. Thus this duel will be post
poned until there will no longer be
any occasion for it.
There is a lamentable lackness, so to
speak, in candidates for President.
There really are no candidates for this
office. No sooner is a man spoken of
as a possible aspirant for Presidential
honors than he immediately arises to
assure the country that he cannot pos
sibly consent to serve it in that
capacity. Verily, it besins to look
as though the country would be com
palled to insert an ad in the "wanted"
column or the White house will be "to
let." Perhaps, when the time rolls
round for a candidate to step into the
traces and draw the car of State through
another four years, some of these mod
est gentlemen who seem so anxious for
the shades of seclusion, will consent to
do the country tho honor of being its
Two very important amendments to
the Army bill, have been preposed in
the House. One, by Browne of India
ana, providing for the gradual reduction
of the present force of paymasters in
the army, and for the final transfer of
their duties to the Quartermasters De
partment. The proposed reduction is
to be effected by failing to fill the va
cances as they occur. There are now
17,050 men in tho army, and to pay
these, there is employed fifty fivo pay
masters, and fifty four the paj masters
clerks. During the war, one paymaster
would pay almost as many men as
there are now in the entire army. The
other amendment is simi'.lar to that
in 'he Post office bill providing that
railroad companies, which received
government aid in their construction
shall be paid a reduced rate for carry
ing Government supplies. There ap
pears to be a dispostion to compel such
railroads to contribute something to
ward the settlement of their oblgations
with the United States. This is ex
ceedingly refreshing, even if it extends
no farther than securing reasonable
rates for the transfer of Government
troops and supplies, the "LT. S. mails.
One of the dishonest dodges known as
sharp practice, which has been resorted
to by the railroad companies which haver
secured land grants, is, to delay obtain
ing patents upon their lands and thus
escape tho payment of taxes on them.
Unpatented lands are not subject to
taxation, and by this means these com
panies have, heretofore, been able to
avoid the ray ment of many thousands
of dollars of taxes. Of course this is
really, nothing butdown right thievery,
but being rather cute stealingand being
done by large corporations it has, so
far, met with no substantial obsrutct
ion. A bill has recently been intro
duced in Congress, which provides that
all these lands which shall not be sur
veyed and patented within one year
from the passage of this act shall re
vert to the Government. There are
now more than 150,000,000 acres of
lands belonging to the Pacific railroads
whfch have never been patented and up
on which, no tax is paid. This bill is
but compelling the performance of an
act of common honesty which nohonor
nble individual would hesitate for one
moment to do without an act of Con
gress, and should receive the assistance
of every Coneressraan, and especially
the members from the Pacific coast.

It is estimated that this country con
sumes annually more than 2,000,003,
000, pounds of sugar.. Allowing, in
round numbers, our population to be
50,000,000, this would place the yearly
consumption of each individuil man
woman and child in the United States
at 40 pounds. This sort of j.howing
somewhat shakes ones confidence in
the accuracy of the figures. But even
if this estimate should somewlmt over
state the matter it is approximately
correct, at least. The revenue derived
from imported sugar is now about 45,
000,000 per year. The average duty
on sugar is 2J cents per pound and is
equal to about 50 per cent of its val
ue. In view of the fact that the sugar

Whibky is a most troublesome and
demoralizing luxury and tobacco well,
a fellow couldn't enjoy a 3igar if he
didn't eat and he couldn't eat without
sugar nor light his cigar without a
match. On the whole it seems jiretty
clear that whisky and tobacco, and es
pecially whisky, should be compelled to
pay a revenue tax. There is no reasori
for reducing the tax on these, except to
reduce the governments income but
first let us have the tax removed from
sugar and matches and a few other
necessaries before talking of whisky
Mrs. Duniway, editor and proprietor
of the New Nortwcst has begun suit
to restrain the proprietors of the new
daily from issuing their paper under
the name of tho Northwest News.
The similarity in the names of the two
papers is made the basis of the suit.
Wo do not pretend to predict the ro
suit of this suit, but it would seem, to
an impartial observer, that Mrs. Duni
way is just a trifle too sensitiveon this
subject. Though the names are some
what similar, there is, we venture to
suppose, very littlo probability of the
two papers becoming confused. The
fact 'that the new paper is a daily
would, alone be sufficient to save con
fusion. Besides, if thifc new paper as
sumes any greater similarity with the
New Northwest than that of its name
it is not likely to be worth the trouble
of a law suit. There- is onl) room in
so small a State as Oregon for one such
paper as tho New Northwest and that
publication amply covers the field.
Mrs. Duniway is a sister to Mr. Scott.
Mr. Scott is the editor of the Orcgon
ian. The people of JNevada are making an
effort.to reduce the salaries of Stale oIE
cers The salaries now paid were es
tablished when the mining excitement
was at its height and were made in
accordance with tho then prevailing
prices. The Governor, for doing al
most nothing, receives an annual salary
of G,000; the Lieutenant Governor
gets G,100 a year for doing a great
deal less than the Governor. The sal
aries of all the other office.? are graded
in the same proportion. The mining
excitement having greatly subwded,
prices have been materially lowered,
wages greatly reduced, but the state
officers get the same as usual. Taxes
are, of course, very high and the state is
very depply in debt and continually
getting deeper. At the last elections
the candidates of both parties were
pledged to the support of such changes
in the constitution as would reduce
the salaries and curtail the ex
penses of the state consistently with
prevailing prices the present financial
condition of the state.
The undertaker who buried the late
Senator Ilill, appears to have profited
by the example of the doctors and at
tendants of President Garfield. The
United States Senate arranged to pay
the expenses of the funeral and straight
way this enterprising undertaker ap
peared at Washington with a bill for
3,100. He olTered to reduce the bill
to Sl,800, but has not yet received pay
