'The facilities which exist in Oregon
for raising stock have been mentioned
heretofore in connection with the soil
and climate. J!ut in order to illustrate
these facilities more clearly reference is
had to the tatisties of tho (, '.'em

and a comparison drawn between the
co-t of raising stock in Oregon, on the
northwest cuat, and in Maine, on the
northeast eoasl, both States b"ing situ

"Tu have a splendid state," said
Hon Frank Pixly to an Oregonian
representative after his return from The
Dalles last night. "1 had read about
Oregon, but 1 hail no more idea of its
grandeur and magnificence than I

state; L'tn going to bring Stanford, aril

270 miles of railroad and supply the

the U. S. mail has come to a stand
still on every portion of Colvrell'a line,
and that three or four hundred pounds
of mail matter remain stacked up in
Linkville. The citizens of this place,
however, are having this mail brought
through at their own epens.

us that the above complaint is justified

Long we learn that a number of In
dians, with a large band of horses,
crossed over the Columbia in the vicin
ity of Kockrillo, in this county, and
undertook to drive the sheep men off
he rauge, giving them to understand
hat they wanted the grass for their
horses. But as the sheep men, num-
)ering some twenty or more, well arm
ed, soon congregate.! on the spot, the?
fndians soon quieted down and left.
We do not wish to advise the people of
that section to do anything calculated
to gt them into trouble; but we be
lieve if they wovld kill about fifty or

would rest easier in the future. There
