NEW LAWS NEEDED.
There seems to be no hoi? of relief
for the unfortunate Union Pacific em
ployes who are waiting in Portland
for their pay. 'Their condition serves
to point a moral which is that the
states should pass laws that v.-ill reach
yet farther than the lien laws, and in
such cases as this give the laborer a lieu
on any property of the company, nr.il
supplementary 10 uua snouia De u pro
vision by which punative damages would
be assented against any corporation, dis
charging its men without paying them
unless it was shown that the company was
insolvent. In this case the trouble seems
to be with Jay Gould and Kilpatrick
Bros. & Collins. J. H. Smith & Co., are
doing all they can, though they are no
more bound to pay than Kilpatrick Bros.
& Collins, nor as much so as the Union
lHriiie. for whmi IrtA u-arl- wua rlrrt
Kilpatrick Bros. & Collins took the con
tract from the Union Pacific, J. H.
Smith & Co. from them, and they in
turn sub-let the contracts to a number
of small contractors, who are directly re
sponsible to the men for their wages.
The sub-contractors cannot pay, because
they are not paid, Smith & Co, cannot
pay (though they have done their best)
because Kilpatrick & Co. who are abun
dantly able to do so, do not pay them
iviijmtncK & co. who never pay a cent
advances refuse to pay unless they are
paid by the Union Pacific, and the
Union Pacific is in the control of the most
infamous scoundrel that ever wrecked
a railroad and robbed under color of
law, his fellow man. Jay Gould with
his untold millions hides behind the
corporations which are his cats paws,
.and brings ruin and disaster on the
labor and industries of the country, and
as the laws are at present found is above
their reach. There is a dawn of hope
on tne political horizon, which may
nsher in a brighter day. There is need
of a new party, if for nothing else, to
make the old parties do their duty to
the people. When such a state of affairs
can exist as that -in Portland, there is
something lacking in the laws. ' We
believe the growth of the new party
will have a good effect on the old ones
and cause them to pass some needed
laws, instead of
' "- O"" V d.
some measure which , will give one or the
other political advantage. If the new
party can accomplish this, it will not
have been born in vain.
SHALL WE MAKE THE EXHIBIT?
We believe that $250,000 would not be
a dollarstoo much to be expended by the
Btate of Oragon in exhibiting her pro
ducts at the Columbian fair next year.
If Oregon makes an exhibit she should
make it like the queen she is. If she
cannot do that, she had better make no
-exhibit at all. If we make a poor exhibit
;as compared to other states it will injure
us instead of helping us. It will be said
-of whatever we show, "It is Oregon's
Tvaaf ' Anrl it St i'o n A4- 1 i I
imd better not be shown. Another
question arises, and that is, is the ex
hibit at Chicago the best use to which
$250,000 of the State's funds can be put?
If it is not, then the expenditure should
not be made. The whole matter is a
business affair, and should be so treated.
The Columbian fair offers Oregon a
stated advertising space which will cost
her $250,000. Will the advertisement
bring her an adequate return?. We
think it would, but at the same time we
believe the money could be expended in
a better cause, and made to yield quicker
and larger returns, not perhaps to the
State, as a State, but to the present in
habitants thereof ; the people whose
money will have to foot the bills. We
believe that an appropriation to build a
portage railway at the Cascades, and
another at the Dalles of the Columbia,
would prove a greater benefit te the
present inhabitants of the State than
any sum that might be expended in ad
vertising our resources. An appropria
tion of $250,000 by the State of Oregon,
supplemented by alike sum from the
state of Washington, would build and
equip both these roads. The building
and operating of the roads would save to
the producers of the Inland Empire one
million dollars a year. . The advertising
of cur resources would bring other peo-;

tiply our assessment roll, but this would
not benefit . the farmers of the eastern
portion of the State at least, to any great
extent. As a matter of fact, with pres
ent transportation facilities, Eastern
Oregon now raises all the produce she
can ship, and any increase of acreage, or
yield,' until some means of transport
ing it to the seaboard is provided, would
be nothing less than a misfortune. If
the State can spare the amount for ad
vertising purposes after she has done
her duty by her present citizens, the
scheme is a good one. If she cannot,
then her spare cash had better be ex-
THE BEAUTIFUL NEW YEAR.
What memories does this little sen
tence awaken in your breast, of good old
times, and perchance, of bette r days (or
worse), that now are gone beyond
recall, and who wants to recall
them. There will ' continue to be
new years, right along every 365 days,
or at least that is what has happened in
the past and each succeeding New Year
will give you a new opportunity to
swear off; to quit for a week or two, and
then begin again for the next swearing
off period And if New Years did not
come along on schedule time, what
.vouid the good people do with the little
habits contracted for that especial
uccusion, and what would be the use of
living if we were deprived of one of the
days in which the employe gets the drop
on the old man, so to speak, and get
paid for eating his New Year's dinner.
And then what a chance we would lose
in not watching the old year out and the
new one in, not to speak of the head we
would have in tho bright early morning
of the infant year, and of the glorious
opportunity ot swearing off again next
year, and so on down the long line of
years until we are so old that it looks
bad to swear oft' at all, and we go down
with our last year's sins on our head not

The Oregonian may be correct in its
editorial in Wednesday's issue wherein
it says, "gold is king," but it does not
look that way. The dispatches the same
day announce trouble in the senate, and
the probable defeat of the election bill,
on account of the silver bill. Silver,
just now, is king.

have no trouble in performing that
