At 3 P. M. Oct. lOtti, W. H. Seward
(lied at tail horrm in Anburn, New
York, at tbe age of 71 years and nearly
3 months. He wan one among the
greatest men of tlie generation which
has now nearly passed away. Few
men have ever lived who were for so
long a period as be, In active public
life. lie began his. official career in
1830. as State Senator, and till the ac
cession of Gen. Grant to the Presiden
cy, be was almost constantly the occu
pant of some public position, or active
ly engaptd in the campaigns of hi
party. He was first an anti-Mason, af
terward a Whig; and when that party
went to pieces, he was one of the or
ganizers of the Republican party. He

haps no man lived, on the morning of

AUKIf TLTt BAL NOTES.
We are informed that wheat sells for
ten cents per bushel more at Junction
than at Corvallis. Reason Junction
is on the railroad, hy which shipments
can be made any day, thus giving the
buyer tbe advantage of changes or
demand in the market. Corvallis is
on the river, by which nothing can be
shipped tiil after the rainy season
sliall set in. We liear that much
wheat has been hauled in wagons from
tlie neighborhood of Corvallis. and
from points even below, to be sold or
stored at Junction.
At the late election of officers, the
Agricultural Society, or Walla Walla,
elected D. M. Jesse, President; S. M.
Wait, Vice President ; fl. P. Isaacs,
Orley Hull, Frank Shelton, Wni. Shel
ton and Phillip Ritz, Directors ; O. P.
Lacy, Secretary ; Chas. Moore, Treas
urer. Hop-growing is becoming quite a
feature in tlie agricultural interests of
Puget Sound. Tbe low lands of tlie
valleys are peculiarly adapted to the
successful production of tlie crop. The
hop-growers of the Puyallup valley
finished picking last week. The crop
is about 24,000 pounds. Five thou
sand pounds were shipped to Portland
by the Inst steamer.
The Clarke County Annual Fair
opened on tlie 9th inst. M. K. Hatli
away, President of the Society, deliv
ered the Annual Address, Thursday,
the 10th. It was devoted to the best
methods of developing the resources
and enhancing the prosperity of the
comity iu mectwnlca and agricultu
ral matters. The sliow of stoek is re
ported to be more than n-ually avl
itable, and tlie agriculturists of the
county are taking a livelier interest in
me fair tnan ever nciore.

The Legislature seems to be about
to adopt some measures which will
aid the State in n practical wi y in
tlie mutter of advertising it abroad
and promoting immigration. The
bill to appoint Gen. E. L. Appkgat a
Commissioner lias already passed both
houses; a bill to pay Mrs. Dr. Saw
telle a small compensation for labors
as an Immigration Commissioner, and
the bill to provide for a State Board
of Immigration, are pendlnz. We do
not think tlie Legislature can do a bet
ter thing than to make liberal provls-
ion for the promotion of immigration
through tbe spread of information by
all these or other similar agencies. Ap
plegate ought to havfe a reasonable
salary; Dr. Sawtelle can do effec
tive service for the small compensation
she asks ; and tlie State Board can do
an immense work, with anytning like
liberal means. The aggregate of all
tbe annual sums asked tor this purpose
is insignificant compared with tlie
sums which the State is asked to give
away for things of much less moment
to the people.
There is another small matter pend
ing to which we wish to call special
attention the proposition to provide
for tlie expenses of the Centennial Ex
position Commissioner. Only 14.000
is asked for f 1,000 each year. It
will be the business of the Commis
sioner to see that the products and in
dustries of Oregon are exhibited at that
exposition. His field will be the
world ; for tbe world will be there to
see, to hear and to learn. It will
be a magnificent opixirtunity for
our State. Mr. A. J. Dufur, the
Commissioner, is an enthusiastic friend
of Oregon and an indefatigable worker
in her be hall. He has already spent
largely of his own private fortnne in
the work of making Oregon known.
At tlie exposition he will have on ex
hibition everything which public or
private enterprise shall provide. He
will do much in this direction himself
and he will stir op other liberal heart
ed friends of the State to assist him.
He will have snch a chance to adver
tise and commend Oregon to tlie peo
ple of all countries as no man may
ever have again. - In view of the im
portant results which may be achieved
through him, the State ought to open
its treasury doors and bestow liberally,
munificently, to aid him.

The Bill to lease tlie Willamette
Locks and Canal eetn to have been
"putliiitt little bod." Let It sleep
The scheme of the Canal and Locks
Company to dispose of the works to
the State has been revived in a new
form. The bill was reported back
from tbe Committee, yesterday, with
an amendment which is practically a
a substitute, and as amended tlie nroi-
ositlou is substantially that the State
shall purchase tlie works at $000,000
navable in anmml installments of
$50,000, ten per cent, of which goes to
the school fund. The bill does not
provide in set phrase for '"sale" but
for a "lease," lor the term of twelve
years, at a yearly rental of f "Q,000 and
at the last payuieut, tlie State to have
title. It Is substantially a sale by the
Company and a purchase by the State.
As we propose to discuss this bill fair
ly and with reason only, and as we
have not been able to ascertain precise
ly the details we shall defer comment
till the bill sliall be printed.
Indiana Is one of the States which
all tlie Liberal and Democratic politi
cian have constantly claimed as "sure
for Greeley." They spared no effort
to make it sure for tlie mongrel ticket
in October. Tlie effort was concentra
ted and desperate. But. after all, they
have only elected Hendricks Governor,
by a scratch, and the Republicans have
elected the rest of the State ticket, the
Cougressman-atrlarge and a majority
in both houses of the Legislature. Hen
dricks was elected partly because of his
boundless popularity with the Democ
racy of Indiaua, and partly through a
Republican defection from the Rcpub-
. licau candidate. At the time of his
nomination it was stated that ho was
tne weakest oi tne tnree aspirants Mr

as though Indiana is at all "sure tor

election indicates that the State is sure

and given active support to, tlie
scheme to acquire possession ot the
Willamette canal and locks by tlie
State, in the manner proposed by the
bill now pending in tlie House. The
Eugene Journal did, indeed, at first
mention the bill favorably, but it has
not urged the matter nor displayed
any particular concern about the re
sult. On the other hand, the Bulletin
Mountaineer, Register, Sentinel. Pan
fcigraph and Statesman have decided
ly opposed the scheme. The follow
ing are extracts from some of the pa
pery we have named :
The Jacksonville Sentinel says :
"rrom all the tacts that we can
gather on the subject, the Canal and
Lock speculation is about to prove
sinkiiu; game for the Company, and
they are anxious to get it off tlieir
hands, and have resorted to the above
scheme to further swindle the State,
Wliether tliey will be successful or not
will depend upon the wisdom and hon
'esty of our legislators. The mere tact
that those that are interested in the
speculation are anxious to sell before
the work is completed ts ot ttseit a cir
cumstance sufficient to warn the pur
chaser to beware, lhis noise about

better to pay a good price for what we
know to be valuable, than hazard our

tried, and for aught we know entirely
The Register says, after denouncing
tlie scheme as unwise :
"The duty liefore our Republican
Representative in the Legislature it
regard to this bill Is very plain. They
should reject it most emphatically.
The Mountaineer says :
"The (.'anal and Locks will not lie
completed until January 1st, IS'
which is tlie time given by the law
creating the company, in our opui
ion it will be time enough for tlie
State to lease them after they have
been finished and tried. If the specu
lation turns out disastrous for the Coin
pany, let them lose It in the same
manner as any other party and if there
is as much money in it as they are
anxious to make the people of Oregon
believe tliere is. why, we are willing
tliev should make it. At least we are
inclined to the belief that it is not pol
itic for the State to have anything to
lo with this matter at present. v
hope this bill will be killed and all
others of a similar nature."
The 1'antagraph calls it a "Jod," an
"unblushing raid upon the State finan
ces," and adds :
"The whole bill was evidently
framed by a shrewd, sjieculative, bold,
and unscrupulous manipulator. It I

With this showing, and remembering
the history of the war which the Re

not see any sjiecial reason for altering

THE IXM'H ASD CAXAL Bat
Having obtained a copy of the
amended bill to provide for a lease by
the State of the Willamette Locks and
Canal, we find that we stated IU prin
cipal features correctly in the Statesman-
of Sunday morning. : The details'
are immaterial, in considering the
main proposition which is that the
State shall lease the works for twelve
years at a yearly rent of. $.0.000. and
upon the last payment to be the owner.
Tlie bill is even more objectionable
in some reiiects than the original.
The fact that it secures eventual own
ership is the only redeeming feature in
it. It propose? to give tlie Company
$GOO,000 less the 10 per centum which
is to go to tlie school fund. The net
payment to the Company will be
$540,000. The sum is enormous, 'and
ery greatly beyond the highest possi
ble Value ot the works as H business
investment. The bill makes no pr
ision whatever for the return of the
$200,000 originally donated to the
Company by the Slate' That is treat
ed as gone. This bonus added to the
price proposed by this bill makes the
enormous aggregate of $740,000 which
tlie works will cost the State; to which
must be added tlie interest accruing
on the bonus $14,000 per rein-. Bv
the time that bonus debt is paid, the
aggregate will lie swelled, probably, to
fSoO.OOO or over.
No business man in the world would
purchase the works at the price asked ;
and the Suite ought not to pay any
thing (after having donated $200,000)
more than a business man would pay.
The "actual value' is nil that the law
ever contemplated should lie paid by
tlie State. The actual rnfwe may le a
much greater or a much less .tmi than
the actual &.' of the works. Asa
business investment, the locks must
produce enough by tolls to pay tlie in
terest on purchase money, cost of
repairs, and expense of commission
ers, collectors, lock men, etc. i lie
interest on $510,000 the sum to be
actually Kiid the company at 10 per
cent., would tie $.4.0H!. As we have
heretofore shown, the total tonnage of
the river, the last year, would have
produced by tolls only about $12,000.
At the very highest calculation, there
never was a year when the tolls would
have exceed $22,000. We do not
licve that next year the total tonnage j
on the river would pay even $12,000.
The balniice of the money for purchase.
repairs running expenses, etc.. must
be raised by taxation. We are pay
ing, now, too much taxes to liave this
load saddled upon lis. The whole i
matter should be postponed till the i
works are completed and tested. Xo !

S1IIPPIXU riXlt'R TO LIVERPOOL. '
From the S. '. ( hroniole. !
The excessively low prices obtained !
for wheat this reason have led many :
to consider the leasibility of check mat- j
ing tlie speculators, ly having our;
wheat manufactured here into flour
and exported in that form to Liver- !
Iool. Two aavaiitnjre.s woum attend
this if it were practicable. The first S
results from the tact tluit the same !
price can always be obtained lor a bar-
rel or 200 pounds of flour, as for a cen- J
tal or 300 pounds of wheat, and a bar
rel of flour is only two-thirds of the j
weight ot three centals ol wheat, tne
cost of tonnage would Ikj reduced by a j
third, and the price tor the wheat pro- !
duct proportionately enhanced even it ;
tonnage remained the same. The ;
second is, that flour had been maiiu-l
tactiired there remains a large qtianti-
ty of by-products, such as bran, mid-j
dlings. etc., which always find a irofir
able market both here and in Liver- j
But there are difficulties in the way.
Labor, the cost ot which would have to I
come out of the price obtained lor tin:
flour, is dearer here than in England, j
and tlie flour while in course of transit j
is liable to damage from sea damp, i
Then, too, English'millers would throw !
as many difficulties in the way as i
possible, since they need our wheat to
mix with other kinds to produce su
perior brands. It wonld take some
time to overcome tlieir opposition, and
establish our brand? firmly in the mar
ket. None of these ditliculties. howev
er, are insuperable. The diiierence iu
the cost of Inbor is rapidly iliswapjiear
ing. and the opposition ot English mil
lers would not aail much after our
flour had been well placed on the En
glish market. They, would, in fact, be J
forced to become buyers ot it. j
The only serious d'illlcnlty is the d.nn- J
age to which flour is liable from sea-
damp; but we cannot believe that
some way cannot be found of p-icking
it which will make it possible to deliv
er it iu Liverpool, with the flavor that
It had when it left the mill in San
Francisco; and. as a matter ot fact, j
flour has been delivered in Liverpool, f
after having made the voyage round;
Cope Horn, in perfectly good condi- !
tion. Tliere is no reason why flour
cannot be preserved during a voyage
as readily as meats or traits. The ;
subject requires only a little inventive
fenins to make success certain. We
elieve that the day Is not tar distant
when our tanners and millers will be
able to ship flour to England, and to
secure all the advantages we have
shown to result from it, and when the
uianuiactnre of flour will give ad
ditional employment to hundreds of
mechanics in our Suite.
The Albany Register comes to the
atfor the opponents of the bill to lease
the Willamette canal and locks. It
"The thing looks to ns like an at
tempted imposition. Tlie men who
are building the locks, it seems to us,
would not be so anxious to lease or
sell, were it a profitable or paying in
vestment, l'hey went into the pro
ject, backed by two hundred thousand
dollars from tlie school fund, with the
design of making a "big thing" tinan- j
cially. and not with the laudable aim
of increasing tlie facilitie of naviga-1
tion. The speculation does not prom- J
i-e to pay as they thought, and so they j
want to get out of It as handsomely as j
possible. They have a right to make j
this endeavor, if tliey choose ; but tlie
KNple do not enre to be taxed to
death to enable tlietn to succeed."
