The Eepublican party of Oregon,
in convention assembled, do make !
and affirm the following declarations
of our principles:
1. That we favor honest, 'effi
cient and economical administration
of every department in . the govern
ment. 2. That we favor the equal pro
tection of the rights of labor and
capital, -k, ,
3. That' we are in favor of regu
luting the salaries v of th'e count' of
ficers so that they shall receive such
com 'Sensations as are commensurate
with their service.
4. That we regard the free school I
system of our State as the special
care and pride of the Eepublican
5. That it is the policy of the Re
publican party to foster and encour
age the development of our State
by the construction of the railways
wliich will place us in direct com
munication with our sister Stat s.
6. That we hold all corporations
to be strictly responsible for their li
abilities un ler the law, and recog
nize the right of the Legislature to
enact all re sonable limitations on
7. That to the end that settlers
upon unearned railroad lands in this
State may be enabled to obtain titles
without delay, and that those seek
ing homes may not be embarrassed
in the location of lands, we tavor
such action by Congress as will place
such lands within reach of actual
settlers at a price not exceeding
$2 50 per acre, under swh condi
tions and provisions as will secure
the railway companies in any vested
rights or equities they may have in
the proceeds of that laid.
8. That we favor the enactment
of a law by Congress restoring to set
tlers the right to homestead and pre
empt in all cases where by abandon
ment of entries and filing they have
hitherto not had full benefit of those
9. That the rapidly increasing
manufacturing and, wool growing
interests of the State demand the
continual fostering care af the gen
10. That the reciprocity treaty
with the Sandwich Islands is an im-
position upon "the government and
the people and should be speedily
11. That by the generous policy
of the Republican party in 'ongress,
liberal appropriations have been
made to various portions of the
C&ate, and we favor the continuance
of this liberal policy towards the de
velopment of the Columbia river
and its tributaries, the Yaquina and
Coos ays, the proposed harbor of
refuge at Port Orford, the Umpqua,
Coquille and Si'islaw rivers, the con
struction of the locks al the Cas
cades and The Dalles, of the Colum
bia river, as well as other sections of
12. "We profoundly deplore the
untimely and tragic death of James
Abraham Garfield, latf&President of
the United States, who was shot
down while in the discharge of his
official duties by the hand of a cow
ardly assassin, aud we approve and
applaud the practical wisdom, the
unselfish patriotism and the un
swerving fidelity to the constitution
and the principles of American lib
erty with which James A. Garfield
has discharged under circumstances
of unparalleled difficulty the great
duties and responsibilities of the
Presidential office during his brief
13. That we regard President
Arthur's veto of the bill for the re
striction of the (Chinese immigra
tion, as unwise and unjust, and we
condemn the policy which permitted
it as being opposed to the principles
of the Republican party as express
ed in the platforms of our" last Na
tional Republican Convention, and
we heartily commend our Represen
tative in Congress, Hon. M. C.
George for his able efforts to secure
the passage -o. sucha bill; and we
here earnestly declare it to be our
belief that Chinese immgration to the
United States should be restrained,
and we demand that our" Represen
tatives in Congress shall persist in
advocating the enactment of a law
that will effectually accomplish that
14. That we heartilr indorse our
able Congressman, Hon. M. C.
George in his untiring efforts in be
half of our State; and that we heart
ily approve of the economical and
efficient administration on the part
of our present Republican State officers.
The" News has changed its place
of abode. As a metropolitan jour-
nal would say, the pressure of busi-- j
ness has cumjielled it to seek more j
commodius quarters. A just regard j
for truth, however, compells us to
say that the pressure of business had
little to do with the present removal.
The pressure of rent had, though.
Newspapers usually entertain their
readers with elaborate descript ons
of their new premises whenever a
a change of location is made. En -gravings
usualy form a part of such
descriptions. The News regrets
its inability to furnish its readers
with a picture of its residence; but
the artists and engravers are busy
with other work. Those who have
not seen the building are invited to
call in and inspect its architectural
merits; such as are prevented from
doing so by reason of distance, can
console themseleves with the fact
that they may see just as fine build
ings in all the large cities.
The News premises front upon
that street of Canyon City common
ly known as Town Gulch Although
ifcis a little removed from the busi
ness part of the city, it is one of the
most lively streets of all. Since we
have become familiar with this
sheet, we are convinced that the
census taker made a big mistake in
enumerating the inhabitants of Can
yun City. There are more children
in Town Gulch than the whole pop
ulation of the city, as figured in the
census tables. Perhaps some of the
children were in hiding when the
census marshal was around.
To the east and south a fine view !
is had of the public park and the ;
buildings belonging to the county, j
It is true that the trees and shrubs
that are supposed to be necessary
to make a park, have not yet ap
peared above the ground; but they !
will doubtless be there some time.
In a July day, wen the sun is beat
ing down upon the smooth and pol
ished surface of the park and the i
atmosphere is only a few degrees j
hotterthan Sahara, it will be easy to
imagine that beautiful birds are car
oling in the branches of its supposi
tious trees, and the waters- of its
fictitious fountains are flashing in
the sunlight- Several years experi
ence in the newspaper besiness has j
developed our imagination .wonder
fully. Sometimes when our purse
is as empty as a collapsed balloon,
it is so comforting to i bfe able to- iin
agiue it bursting with gold. But
we are straying from the subject
To the west the ' Nsws looks out
upon a soa cf housetops, gradually
sloping away to the level of Canyon
Creek, further on, the view is lim
ited bv the hill, with its abandoned
tunnels and its tailing' piles that tell
of the days of gold. Upon the
whole, the situation U an advanta-'
geous one. We can overlook the
greater part of -town and see what ie
going on; while the nearness to the
court-iiouse gives onoajjjnse of se
curity and protection.
The building itself is well adapted
for a printing office, though not de
signed for one. It was built, we
believe, for a law office atfd has
been used as such .for a long time.
It is literally full of law. Every
crevice and cranny has been pene
trated by legal lore; the dust and
dirt of many years is also lodged
thtre. The house ia haunted by
the legions who have fallen5 victims
to that insatiate monster, the Law;
upon a (mini, moonlight night one"
may see crowds of litigants-thronging
its rooms, each chanting in the
same low monotone: they niug but?
one song and that, song only one
word: "Fees, fees, fees.'
S. nator Grover's 4rift for the pay-
ment of the Modoc war to the State'
of Oregon, has jmssed,. the Senate"
appropriating $70,268, feeing the"
amouut recommended for payment
by Inspector General James A.
Hardie. The House bill for the
same amount has been favorably re
ported by the Military Committee,
nnd is on the House calendar with
the passed Senate bill on the speak
er's table. It stands a fair show for
passage through the House during
this or the next session of this Congress.
Necessity is die mother of inten
tion. During the siege of Paris her
inhabitants learned the merits of
horseflesh as food and since then its
consumption has made steady pro
gress in the French capital. In
1875, 7,000 horses were eaten; in
An Eastern railroad Superintend
ent has issued time tables on which
the hours are numbered from oife'to
twenty -four. This saves looking up
and down a long column for the let
ters "a. m.," or "p. m." It is the
most sensible method of indicating
time, and should be adopted by ev
erybody. In 1880 the canneries on the Colk
umbia river packed and exported
540,000 cases of salmom-, worth over
$2,700,000; aud $785,000 gold coin
