the Oregon & California Kailroad.
The people, It said, demanded to know
and in the name of tlie people the Far
mer spoke. The next issue of the
Plaindealer, however, contained the
information that tlie work Mid not
only not stopped, but that it was pro
gressing rapidly between Oakland and
Roseburg, the cars .already having
commenced running to Oakland. The
Farmer, then, had spoken unadvisedly
and had created the false impression
that work had been altogether sus
pended on the railroad. Notwith
standing the Plaindealer's statement,
the Mercury and some other Demo
cratic papers liave been engaged, con
stantly, since, harping upon the sus
pension of railroad work as though it

already built, in the three years since
it undertook the road, , 181 miles, and
during the present year nearly GO
miles. It ha, by theterins of the law,
till 1880 to finish the road to the Cali
fornia State line, or till it shall meet
the California ro:id. Here, then, we
have a half dozen newspapers, headed
by tlie Farmer, growling because the
railroad company does not build their
road more than four times faster than
it agreed to build it. By the terms ot
the law the company might have built,
since the beginniuc ot 1870, just forty
miles of railroad ; and yet, that would
have been a full compliance with the
contract between the company and the
When the railroad was first serious
ly talked of, and indeed as late as
'when the law giving the grant of land
was passed, the people of this State
tha-ight it would be a '-big thing" if
we should really get as much road
built as the law required. Instead of
that, we got . the first year, 20 miles,
anil in tlie next two-years, instead of
only 20 miles more, we got 1(1 miles.
The entire length of the Willamette
valley was traversed with road, with
depou and stations every few miles,
and tlie heart of the Unipqua valley
was tapped, when we had no right,
undor tlie law, to demand that the
road should have been completed fur
therttein Oeryais, on French Prairie.
Thus much, for the f tirness and justice
with which Democratic newspapers
treat jpersons and facts, where tliey

Tne Stockton (Cal.) Independent
says: Tl)e friends ot the Greeley
ticket iu this State, are, with
a. very few exceptions former
members of the Democratic party;
yet it is rrported by them that large
numbers ol Republicans are favorable
to this Delly Vardeu ticket. Promi
nent Republican? in this city, who
liave never by a word or sign favored
the movement, have been reported as
supporters of that ticket." That is
precisely tli game of brag, by which
Democratic papers of Oregon are at
tempting t manufacture Kepublican-
Greelev sentiment. A California!!
reading some of the Oregon Demo
cratic newspapers, might reasonably
conclude tlwt tlie Grant Republicans
were the exception here, and theCliap
parpiaekers tlie rule. Xothing could
lie, however farther from the truth.
The defection from the Republican
party ia m utterly insignificant as to
be beneath remark'. We have little
doubt but that Greeley strength is
manufactured (on paper) in a similar
way in tlie Kastern States.

Coainiutiities, rizVw and towns are
iu tlieh- collective caiwcities like indi

without collictive intelligence, enter
prise, nd proper irecautions for the
future than can individuals. Just as
any loan may meet with crises in bu
siness which require extra effort and
aiin4t.il expenditure of money to avert
ruin, so may a city tiddeuly find it
self minpeUixl to make a collective ef
firt to hold its own in the race with
rival towns and tlie surrounding coun
try. Such a crisis is upon the city of
Salem Its business has not grown
any for tlie !at year or two. The gen
eral aspect f things is less hopeful
than it was two years ago. Why?
Because the building of the railroad
tlirough the valley created a new order
oftliings ami because the people of
Saltan did not at tlie time, and tlo not
now embrace the opportunity to forti
fy tlie town against succcessful rivalry.
Tley allowed the railroad to be built
tla?n on a line which practically leaves
tlie town out in the cold ; and they are
doing nothing now to remedy the mis
take. Half the people of Salem are to
day waiting for a Capitol appropria
tion to help them out, seemingly un
conscious that the present state of things
is. iu all its natural influences, against
obtawiing tlie appropriation. The
building ot a State house here, how
ever, will not save or build up the bu
siness of the town. There is some
thing more to be done than merely lo
gft a State house. We want the rail
road tiirovijh tbe town and the depot ia
town. We want a bridge across the
Willamette river. W want, iu gen
eral, a display of snch enterprise and
liberality as will convince everybody
tliat Salem is a tV-e town and that its
people mean bwtiHesn. You may say
yon cannot afford it ; but you can rest
assured that unless these things are
done, tlie town will continue to lan
guish, and you will have plenty of
time to sit in your front doors, and
whittle and growl. That's just what's
The people of Salem have coiitrili
uted liberally to some enterprises of a
senii-Diihliccharacter. That was well;
but in tlie business nice thai is now on,
tliey must continue to contribute to tlie
public good, to nil public enterprises,
if they would'saye what business inter
ests they liave. It will lie a con
stant struggle and it may last for
years; but it cant be avoided.
There's no use mincing tlie matter or
to try to evade tlie logic of events.
Salem has got to "rustle' and it has
got to be liberal in outlay of money or
it cannot win its way along with rival
towns. Tlie men that won't help iu
this matter may just as well move
away anywhere ; all the better, if to
a '-a lodge in some vast wilderness."

tliat Greeley's friends may find it

A MATTER OF IH'XINJSS.
Yesterday we had something fo say
about the necessity of Salt-m badness,
men rallying to the rescue of the busi
ness, growth and prosperity of the city.
To-day we propose to follow np what
we said then, by a few remarks upon
minor business matters.
In general it may be said that no
town can prosper long without co-operation
of all important interests.
There must be mutual help and en
couragement. If a new enterprise is.
to be started, all the citizens should
welcome it and give it a chance. Old
er enterprises should receive steady en
couragement. Everything that adds
to the business, the support, ttte pros
perity of the town should be aided by
the entire community. Nothing
should be left to go It alone, .languish
and finally die out. It is an old say
ing that he who makes two blades or
grass grow wliere only one grew before,
is a benefactor. The rale applies in
business. What a town wants is as
many business men, us many business,
enterprise and as great s triwrnity of
enterprises s can be fairly snpportei I ;
and it is the common interest ot all to
sustain all. it is no mark of a shrewd,
bu-iness man to see biiti confine his.
efforts exclusively to making Sir him
self all the dollars he cau for tbe pres
ent, to the detriment of other lines of
business, or while any other important!
business is iu want of bis liberty tld..
Such a course pursued by each citizen;
would very soon tell disastrorisly upon,
the general prosperity ami fiddly re
act upon each, producing general stag
nation and individual loss.
While upon this subject, we may as.
well refer specifically to a matter of
business iu which we have a direct in
terest, in common with every bnsiness.
man and property owner of Salem.
We mean the matter of keeping tint
town and its business constantly before
the country. Portland advertises it
self in all manner of ways : but chiefly
by its support of three daily newspa-
pers of metropolitan dimensions, style
anil character. Portland is, therefore,
the centre of public notice. Stipposc
till tliose papers to lie blotted out t
existence ; how long would Portland
attract and occupy popular attention?
Not king; and simply because the city
would cease to be advertised. All this
is more seriously true ol Sali-ru, Albtt
ny, Eugene, etc., than of Portland, be
cause they are interior iu location,
smaller iu population and wealth, aud
less intimately connected with the rest
of tlie .state by business relations al
ready established. Salem, then, has
something to do in the way of adver
tising itself to the world. It can be
done in many ways ; but, as in the
case of Portland, it must be chiefly
done through the newspapers. As
one of Salem's newspapers, we take
pleasure in noting every event tliat can
lie of possible interest to others, or of
advantage to tlie city. In doing this,
we expend a much larger sum of mon
ey per week than most people would
imagine. We work, primarily, of
course, like everybody else, for our
own gain ; but we also ilo much for
the public benefit for which we get no
pay, and ask none. We are entitled,
we think, to a liberal support at tlie
hands of the citizens of Salem ; but we
ask no support which would not be
fully justified by business considera
Suppose that, for the want of patron
age, the newspapers now published
here should be compelled to suspend ;
then, how is the city or its business to
lie advertised? What sort of charac
ter would that fact give the city abroad ?
The city being understood to be so
stupid aud dull as to freeze out its
newspapers, what inducement would
then; be for strangers to come here ?
These are questions iu which yn, tlie
business men of Salein, are interested,
as well as are the newspaper publish
ers. ; To conclude this article, we have
to say that then; are very few busi
ness men in Salem who advertise much ;
and there are many who do not adver
tise at all. How can they expect busi
ness, in these clays when advertising
is the oil that makes business go?
Who knows that they are iu business,
except as people ma' chance to dis
cover their signs, as they walk along
the street? We venture that we cm
name one or two, perhaps more, houses
that are not known to even alltlie peo
ple of Salem, much less to the country
people. They don't advertise ; think
it don't pay. Wc know other houses
that nre doing a lair business all the
time with the people of town and
country. They advertise ; and
they knot that it pays. But in the
aggregate the advertising of Salem Is
unduly limited and small. Why, our
revenue from advertising by ontsido
parries is almost equal to that derived
from Salem.. We arc advertising al
most as much for Portland business
men as for Salem. Portland mer
chants are flaunting their goods In the
face of Salem people, through tbe col
umiiti of the Saleui papers. Is it any
vouder tliat so many retail'buyers gr
to Portland, or that business in Salem
Dana spoke of Grant in 1SG3 ns fol
lows : "His modesty, his disinterest
edness, his magnanimity, his bravery.
and his patriotism, may well be held
np as models for emulation. His fidel

in danger, prove that tlie republic will
lie In sate hands while his masterly

iu selecting tie right men for important
trusts, a ft'ord the best reasons for our
belief tliat his administration will be
no less remarkable for the wisdom of
its measures tlian for the elevation of
its motives." This magnificent "puff"'
failed to secure for Ir. Dana the dis
posal of the fat offices of New York,
and that's what's the matter now with
the gushing but recalcitrant Dana.
Referring to the presumption ot
Senator Sumner, a Senator, iu reply
to his anti-Grant fqwech, said : "Why,
sir, if the presumption of the Senator
from Massachusetts should only reach
a little higher, you might find in the
book-stalls tit this city within a year a
volume entitled "The Sermon on tlie
Mount, revised, corrected, and greatly
enlarged and improved, by Charles
Sumner." This reminds ns of an ex
cellent hit President Grant made at
Sumner's egotism : Some one said
Sumner did not believe the Bible. The
President quietly said : '"How could
he ? He did not write It."

I Some time aijo tlie Xew York Her
i aid electrified its readers and the gen-
i-rul public with tlie announcement
j that Dr. I.i v'uigstone, the famous ex-
plorer oft lost, oft. recovered, oft
i i lead, and oft restored to life, hail been
found in tlie wilds of Africa, at Ujijl,
j mi Lake Tanganyika, by one of its
' correspondents. The man who lias
' thus made himself famous as a ''spe
! cial." is a Missourlan, and has long
lii-cii a representative of the Herald,
though more for love tliau money, as
j he is a person of means. His adven
j titrotrs disposition, love of notoriety,
j and desire to make a sensation, all
! combined, conspired to induce him to
I undertake a perilous mission to the in
; terlnr wilds of unexplored Aft-toa. to

a halt iu height, and weighs one htiii-

thick-set man. with very bright-gray
I eyes, and of a sanguine complexion.
He was formerly a war correpond

tin a trip to Knrope. Being of an ad
I venturous disposition, he determined
j to join the Cretan insurgents as a vol
l unteer, but on his arrival found the
' chances nf an honorable fight very slim.
! lie then-fore gave himself up to brief
I literary exen-ise.
A few weeks after his arrival heenn

no way was any one ever authorized
to tender to Schnra or any other Sena

approval of the San Domingo annexa

administration. The President ex
pressed his earnest desire that Sdiura

to its Democratic faith and cannot di

head it savs : "Our road is straight be

THE NAME OI.ll FIGHT.
Dlsgnlse tlie opposition under what
ever name yon please, tlie impending
conflict must be narrowed down to the
two parties that have confronted each
other for the pnst sixteen years. The
mere title of the opposition Is nothing.
Its men and principles are too well
known to mislead tne people. Gree
ley, Trumbull. Sclinn, and other dls- ,
affected politicians, have left our camp,
but tlie masses of the people are in
telligent enough to detect tlie motivo
which led to tlieir desertion. Tliey
hope to gain in tlie Democratic party,
what tliey failed to extort by threat
in our own. Tlieir first move iu tiie
camp of tlie enemy was to demand
leading positions. They said to their
new-found friends, "Make us your
leaders or we sliall return to our old
love." The Democracy believing these
men to have many followers have been
led to surrender tlieir ancient policy so
f tr as to accept tliese deserters as figure-heads
for the campaign, knowing
that the defeat of the Republican par
ty places tlie administration of tlie
government in Democratic Iiands.
Tlie pretended virtue of tliese am
bitious gentlemen is too transparent to
deceive even a blind man. Wti may
lose a lew from our ranks, but we shall
more tlian recover our loss by the gain
of honest men, who have hitherto
lieen prejudiced against our party, but
who have made up their minds that
Hie lest interest nf tlie nation demand
the continuance of the same party iu
nivt-r. that lias already tlnnc so much
toward the development of our re
sources, toward the payment of our
debt, and the reduction of taxation,
toward the establishment of prosperity
and good government throughout the
nation. Lvery day we are receiving
into our ranks men who have opposed
us In the past, who clung to the IX'in
ocrurio imrty until It surrendered its
identity into the hands of Greeley and
Brown. They obji-tt to being bought
or sold without tiieir consent. Thev
are tin- advance guard of thousands
who will take this occasion to leave a
party that long since sold its honor to
the devil, and which would have been
buried years ago, but for the vitality
iuiKtrtcd to iu corrupt form, by the
lew honest men who, looking at its old
traditions, were blind to its faults.
Horace Greeley lias had influence in
the past, but his arm is powerless now.
Like other prominent men who have
traveled the same track, he will waken
to tlie truth that men are Influential
anil powerful so far as tliey are right,
and when they desert the right their
followers will desert them. Horace
Greeley carries no strength with tv.
In the renewal of the old fight We
shall not miss his presence, nor will
tlie enemy lie stronger for it.

Mr. Greeley, after his nomination at
Cincinnati, in replying through ttie
Tribune to an article In the Pittsburg
Gazette, admitted tliat his whole dis
like to Grant arose from the fact tliat
tlie "patronage" of the Government
was not given to Senator Fenton's
friends, among whom Mr. Greeley is
chief. . In this article Greeley said :
"For more than a year to be an avowed
friend of Fenton was to be marked for
proscription at the White nouse. K
yropime to endure thin for one term only.

Motto of the Greeley Democracy i
'We stoop to conquer.
The Xew Orleans Plcnytma tells ti e
Democrats that it is humiliating fo
them to admit that Horace Greeley is
the only man in all tbe Colon who
can dlsipate the prize with General
Grant, and it has not yet seen any ev
idence tliat be can be elected.
It Is said that Horace Greeley, In a
conversation with a friend recently,
remarked "tliat be w as much surprised
to think the defection in tlie Repub'l
can ranks was no greater than it v
jiears to be at tlie present time.' Like
the man wbo fell oft' the top of the
stage-coach, if Horace had only known
the stage hadn't tipped ovcr'r he'd
never get off.

"Governor Hoffman exjiects to get fins
tvnouii nation for Governor, and the
Greeleyites and the Fentonltcs w ill
support him. provided lie uses his In- .
fluence lu favor of Greeley for Presi

edly says : "The only reason why tint
South is willing to accept Mr. Greeb-y
is because they know him to be errai u
and irresolute, and always wcak-kned
in a great, political 'crisis. Tliey thli.k
they could use hhn as tliey used Pierce
antl BuciMtian. They can tlien -carry

that Grant will stand by tlie whole

The tactics of the Greeley party, as
far as they have yet develojKtl, o'.-ty
be expressed iu one word 7ri ,
"Never," pointedly remarks tlie Prov

"since tlie world begun, eas tliere bt-t-ii
such an organized, jiersistent, unceas
ing exhibiiou ot brag as wc have in

claimed as unanimous aud States as
certain, and prominent men, who have
no more idea of voting for Greeley
tlian for Louis Napoleon, are quoiil
as so eager in hissupport tlmt tliey with

The Journal further says, there nre
times in a political campaign wU-u
bragging is etleetive, but to attempt to
carry on a campaign by tliat uloqc Is
like dining on mustard.
