iu tho world, tbo Clermont.

trip from Now York to Albany nnd
wo bavo frequently beard him Bpeak
of that trip and tho astonishment of
tbo peorlo alon tbo banks of the
Hudson as sbo plowed bor way up
Tbo boat proper wus bnilt by
Charles Browu iu Now York; tho en
Kino was built in England. Her
dimensions were: length, 130 feet;
depth, 7 feet; breadth, 18 foot. Her
trial trip waa mailo on August 7,
1807, from Now York to Albany,
tboso on board being Fulton's
friends, tbo mechanics ntil passen
gers. When tho steamer left New
York docks it was amid Ibo joer3 of
tbo ignorant and tbo coarse jokes
and ridicule of tbo incredulous. On
her way up tbo Hudson bbo excited
tho astontshment of-thu inhabitants,
many of whom had never heard of
an ougine, much less of a steamboat.
Some educated oxcursionisl?, who
were camped on the river bank and
saw her pass in tbo night, described
her iu tboir lottcrs to their friends as
a monster moving on the vnters, de
fying tho wiuds and the breath
ing sulpburious vapors aud snorting
llaraes and hiuoke. Augnst 7. 1S07,
j tho day sho left Now York v.ns .Mon

dock at 10 o'clock iu tbo evening ar
jaiving at Cliaucellor Liviug.-tou's,
t above I'oughskeepsio at 10 o'clock

; 21 hours. From tbert the tiip to
j Albany was continued, Fulton writ
I ing that oxnltant nnd prophetic let-
ier from tho Itut named plttc, in
which he said "that bonts can be pro
pelled by steam has been j..roveu, and
it is my belief that the cceHU will
yet bo crossed by steam propelled
vessels." Four years after Fulton's
death, which occurred in 1S15, the
Savannah plowed tho billows of the
ocean and made a safo transatlantic i
passage. Since that time steam has
revolutionized tho transportation

SOMETHINQ ABOUT NEWSPAPERS
The East Oregonian's Superabund
ance of Gall.
Tho Walla Walla Union recently
passed into the hands of a receiver, and
now it has passed out of his hands and
into the hands of P. B. Johnson i gain.
Mr. Johnson, in re-taking charge of the
paper, makes use of these words as part
of his "announcment:" "It is almost
needless to tlato that the resumption of
the publication of telegraphic news de
pends in no small degree upon the pat
ronage received by tho Union. If the
promise of increased patronage is prompt
aud hearty, the resumption will be hur
ried. Otherwise, tho owners will take
In the first place, a daily paper with
out telegraphic news is deficient in its
service to the public from whom it draws
sustenance. In the second place, a
newspaper that promises to print the
news after it is iu receipt ol patronage to
justify it is in the plight of a man who
promises to le honest afler he has gotten
rich by pillage.
A newspaper must print the news, be
of real service to the community in
which it is printed, aud then seek pat
ronage on ihu strength of its perform
ances, aud it will receive supjiortin pro
portion lo its merit. Otherwise it will
linger along, a burden lo the hopeful few
and iu contempt with the general public,
who detest a parasitcal. indolent, lazy
newspaper above all things.
In Boseburg a daily paper is buing
published without any news and with
the outside pages made up of plate mat
ter. There is no use in the world, or
even in Southern Oregon, for such a
dailj paper. It is work for nothing, the
same as if those engaged in it were kept
employed by the paper's patrons pouring ,
water tnrougn a sieve.-t.ast uregoman.
And now let us see what the East Ore-
gonian is giving the people for their
money, as compared with the Pi-m.s-DEALEn.
The paper is practically the
same size 4 pages 24 columns. The
East Oregonian contains 200 inches ads,
rate. $2 per inch per month, f520; 180
lines paid locals ( 10 per line each in
sertion, $18.00 per day, or 450 per
month. Total, $970 per month. Thi
Plaixdealek 120 inches ads, rate 50
cents per monlh, 460; 100 lines local ads
f? 1 cent per line, $1 per day, or $25 per
month. Total, S5 per month.
East Oregonian $970
Difference in receipts. .$S35 I
Now what does the blatant editor of
the East Oregonian give his patrons "for
the $SS5 he receives more than the
Piiimjealek. We will sea. He pitnts
4S inches telegraph, 00 inches of local
and general news, and 21 inches edito
rial, 132 inches reading matter ail told.
We print about 24 inches telegraph, 43
inches local and 14 inches editorial, mak
ing a total of 91 inches Difference in
his favor 41 int-kes. Of the editorial atd i
local matter furnished by the two papers, !
we will make no cgmparison further
than to state that, inch for inch, line for
line, the one 13 just ui ood h? the other
if anything a little belter. As to the
telegraph news, we aro forced to admit
the superiority of E. O. His patromj get
more of it, t4S to 24 inches, and get it a
little earlier, and for this trilling differ
ence the East Oregonian receives more

DEM.Ei:. Tho East Oregonian is S years
old, the Pi.ap.deai.eu but one month,
jet with a patronage less thau one-tenth
of that paper, it manages to turn out al
most as good a sendee. As a matter of
fact the telegraphic service of Ihe E. O.,
for a paper that makes sucti pretensions
to journalism, is simply rotten, as any
newspaper man can see at a 'glance,
although by continuous blowing and.
puffing it up, the patrous ol that journal
may bo made to believe that it is the
proper stuff. The class of news it gives
no one is&uffering for, xnd there is
scarcely enough of it to swear by.
Plowing With Electricity.
To Germany belongs the credit of hav
ing drst demonstrated the pnictieability
and economy of electric plowing. An
electric motor is fixed to the plow itself.
The shaft ot the motor, bv means of
suitable gearing, drives a shaft fitted
with a pinion over which a chain runs
from one end of the field to the other.
This chain is held taut at both ends bv
triple ground anchors. When the motor
is put in operation it hauls the plow
across the field. When the end of the
field is reached the plow is tilted to the
other side, and by reversing the motor
the shaft starts on its return journey.
At n recent test at Halle-on-the-Saale
with a two-furrow tilting plow, two fur
rows were turned, measuring together
24 inches in width by 10 inches in
depth, and traveling at the rate of 35
inches por second. The actual useful
effect obtained was equal to eight effect
ive horse-power. A remarkable feature
of this system s that, guided by the
tightened chain, very shallow furrows
can be made with great evenness and
regularity, and the balance plow can
thus K' used for turning over stubble
land and other light work. The first
co;-t of an electric plow is said to bo
much K-low that of a steam cultivating
plant. The entire outfit of such a plow
as that mentioned, dvivuiio, steam en
gines, cables, olo., can be had for about
$2QlW. According to the figures pub
lished as to the results of the trial, the
wonting iwpuiitea ot t no system aro
about half of that of steam plow ing, and
if tho.M.1 results aro Iwrne out in practice
upon an extensive scale there seems to
le no question of the future of tho elec
Ueo. IVtrequin, deputy assessor, re
turned yesterday evening from a trip to
the Bohemia mines and reports the
Music mine, managed by the Bohemia
Hold Mill and Mining Company, work
ing two shifts night and day, with
fifteen hands, which turns out for their
live stamp mill a large yield of rich ore.
A large portion of the yield is free mill
ing ore. It is regarded a regular bon
anza for the owners. It is claimed by
those who have good opportunities for
knowing, that the monthly output is
not less than .$5,000 per month with
their limited facilities. The Annie mine
two miles northeast of the Music mine,
now works five men, pushing a tunnel
and that in a short time it will be in full
blast. It is claimed that the Annie
mine will equal the Music mine in rich
ness. There are also quite a number of
prospectors in that region who are doing
well in developing their claims, all of
which prospect well.
During the last few days we have con
versed with seven different visitors to
Roseburg from distant localities, ana all
speak in terms of praise of the apparent
business activity of the city, and all were
pleased with the location and surround
ing scenery. Tie true Koseborg is ro
mantically situated, and the climate here
is unsurpaseed by any other Bection of
tho country on the Western hemisphere.
Do the citizens of the city realize what
energy and a true spirit of enterprise may
do, to still further advance the prosperity
of the city, and add great numbers to
her population? The Coos bay railroad,
although regarded by some as ol no im
portance to itoseburg, yet, the comple
tion of that road to this point would add
materially to the wealth, property and
population of the city. All encourrge
ment ehoul I be given to the building ol
that road, to secure its lerminna at Rose
burg, for should the road be built, and
its terminus reach some other point at a
distance from this place, there would be

that presents a better field for the in
vestment of capital in enterprise that
would make her the queen city of south
ern Oregon than Roseburg, and any en
terprise that might be in contemplation
should receive the hearty encourage
ment of all her people. No county can
surpass Douglas county in the production
of sugar beets, and a factory at Roseborg
for the making of sugar would encouaage
our farmers in the production of beet?,
and thus the two combined would be a
source of wealth to the people.

TirtsnuKi:, July 15. A stranger who
registered at tho St. James, under the
fictitious name of H. Forepaugh, Ala
bama, was in Santiago, Cuba, two weeks
ago, before tho Spanish government put
in force the ride requiring all foreigners
on the islands to have passports. Mr.
Forepaugh teems to bo well acquainted
with tho movements of tho Cuban insur
gents. He stated that on the vessel on
which ho sailed were 33 Cuban planters
bound fr Washington to intercede with
the cabinet and president that the Cuban
insurgeuts bo recognized as belligerents
by tho United States. Some of the
planters, Mr. Forepaugh says, went to
Buzzard's Bay to see the president.
