Good Words for Oregon.
Hardly any Stare in the Union has
advanced and is advancing so rapidly as
Oregon, which has many advantag s
over the other Western States in the
quality of the soil, the number of its
navigable rivers, nnd the character of
its nomilation. This is tvnified hv f.lir.
j extraordina!y grovvth of porthlnd the
. princi city, where it is said during
i x. l. i ..t xi j
lastvear. not le8 than a thousand new
jh.. i t , j c..n.
ten thousand persons have been added
to the population. The immigration
J there has been extraordinary in that
! time. The eastern quarter of the
Stnt is rapidly settling, and to this fact
the ludian wm of last Summer is oar
tially ascribed. A number of railwys,
mainly narrow gauge roads to transport
grain to fide water, have been lately
built, and a railroad is projected be
tween Astoria nnd Winnncmucca, on
the line of the Central Pacific. Every
thing augurs well f'r Oregon. The
uppur region of the Columbia river
seems destined t be one of the great
! grain erics of the West. The crops now
raised shov a remarkable average per
acre of superior quality, and have never
been known to fail. But they are prob
ably insignificant in point of productive
ness compared with what they food
hvllIbe. There is a vast area of Innd
j unsurpassed fertility between the
blue Mountains in the south and the.
Sp ikanc river in the north, and not
one in fifty acres has yet been cultivat-
.'d. The larger proportion who have
j settled in Oiegon are from New Eng
land, directly or indirectly, and have
canied t th-ir new home all theintel.
j ligenec, energy, perseveiance, thrift
ami industry for which they have
! been noted. The Oregouinns are vtny
;Uf :e LaJifornians in their freedom
J from a reekle.-s speculuting spirit.
Iney expect to make money only bv
legitinmte enterprise and honest labor,
instead of by lucky chance, by turn of
fortune, as their southern neighbors
do. The growth and prosperity of
Oiegon are solid, its present is most
encouraging, and its future is full of

Tiic Surveying Party.
Chief Engineer George Wolcott and
party, composed of sixteen men, arrived
hot e from the East on Thursday even
ing and stretched their tent on the
open blnck cast of the Ilailey p'aoe
where Judge Pricket t resides. We
called on Mr. Widest yesterday morn
ing and ho gave us the following infor-
m:it;on. They st-irted the survey from
Snake river opposite th-; mouth of Port
neuf, came this way by way of 1
Blltte to Wood river nonrlr nnnncitM
the mouth of Camas creek, then up
Camas erefk and over to the head of
Cat creek, a braneh of Little Camas
creek to Boise river, and down Boise
river to fhi place. The whole distance
of this route, from h pre to the mouth
of tbe Portneuf is 200 miles or nearly.
By running the line more direct from
Snake river t- Wood liver it will cut
off twenty-live or thirty miles, leaving
the distune about two hundred and
thirty miles from here to Portneuf.
Mr. Wolcott says there is nothing to
hinder making this cut off and it will
probably be made when the line comes
to be located. It is a basaltic couutry
all the way from tho S: ake river to
Wood river, but compatitively level.
The work will be pretty heavy in get
ting down to Boi-e river from Little
Camas creek, but he does not make
the gride over eiirty feet to the mile.
The grade, however might be run les,
but it would make heavier work.
After he struck Boise river lie did not
continue the survey as the grade would
b easy and regular. He will leave
! here with his party this morning and
go to the mouth of Boise river, and will
lh . . . . ,
Wllow crpek anJ then QQ tfa
he can find towards Canyon Citr, with
the intention of continuing the survey
towards the Dalles, expecting to strike
the Columbia river near the mouth of
the Deschutes. Idaho Statesman.
A Young man who has tried
everything else and failed,
writes to the Vicfesburg Herald
to inquire the requisites for a
good reporter, and he gets for
answer: "A bottle of whisky,
a lead pencil, a east-iron consti
tution and a rhinoceros hide."
Make Home Pleasant.
How many poor moral cast
aways owe their destruction to
habits contracted through lack
of home comforts! Human
nature craves kindred compan
ionship and amusement, and
would, as a general thing, pre
fer home pleasures to those
found elsewhere. But jfouth
ful humanity needs, and will
have recreative indulgences,
hence it should be the con
stant endeavor of those who
have the care and instruction
of the young, to provide such
as will conduce at once to
pleasure and instruction. And
what is more healthful in its
results than mu-sic? That
home in which music is a con
stant resident, will always
prove healthful in its n rental
tendencies, attractive to young
and old, a sure preventive of
a desire to seek less' safe indul
gences elsewhere. Encour
age music in your homes, then,
and add the safeguard of harmo
ny to its other sacred ties.
San Francisco, Aug. 23. About
10 oVlor-k this morning Charles De
Young drove in a coupe to the side
door of the Me'r.molitin Temple where
liev. T. S. Kalleh has his study, and

wished to ?ee him. Kalloch went down
not knowing who his visitor wa. On
his approach to the coupe De Youni;
shot him thiough tho door, inflicting
one wound in the breast and another
in the thigh. Kalloch fell and De
Young r ttomptod to drive off. A
crowd coilecte 1 around the coupe and
finally overturned it, but before De
Young reeieved much damage he was
rescued by the police and taken to the
city prison for safety. Intense excite
ment prevails O'roat crowds are gath
ered on the street, and runners are po
king about calling upon workingmen to
assemble at 2 V. M. Kalloch was at
lirst reported dead, but latest reports
say he is still alive. Qregoniau.
