IMPORTANT TO SETTLERS ON
R. R. LANDS.
We call the attention of occupants of
the land? recently forfeited to the United
States to the fact that ''Secretary Noble
has directed the commissioner of the
general land office to publish a notice in
the papers circulating in the-vicinity of
the lands forfeited by the railroad land
forfeiture act, requiring all persons hold
ing contracts for the purchase of such
lands from the railroad companies to in
dicate at the local land offices, within
sixty days, the particular 'lands which
they intend to purchase under the act.
There can be no doubt that the "con
tracts for the purchase of these lands
from the railroad companies" refers sim
ply to such certificates of tilings as in the
case of the Northern Pacific in' this re
gion, that company used to issue to ap
plicants for these lands, for several years
fter the grant was made. If it be
asked : What about those who never
made any filings and who, as a conse
quence, have no evidence that they ever
made any contract with the railroad
company, express or implied, it may suf
fice, in the absence of any definite in
structions on this point at the local land
office to say that the intention of the
Secretary ".undoubtedly is to compel all
persons holding railroad lands and other
wise qualified to purchase, to indicate at
the local land offices within a period of
ixty days the particular lands which
they intend to purchase, in order that
those holding a larger tract than the
forfeiture act allows them may not pre
vent the settlement of ihe lands by per
sons entitled to enter them under the
homestead or other laws. Ample public
notice will be given when the land office
here receives its orders, as to when the
sixty days begin to run, but we presume
they will not begin to run before the day
tixed for receiving filings on these lands
which is next Monday.
SOCIAL AND POLITICAL PERIL.
The disturbances in the coke region of
Pennsylvania in which, at least, seven
men were killed outright and as many
-as forty wei more or less seriously
wounded gives marked emphasis to the
one grave lesson that the New Orleans
aflair has been teaching the people of
the United States. The Oreaonian of
yesterday very truly says :
we are admitting too many immi
grants of alien races, totally unfit, intel
lectually ana morally, for tbe duties,
privileges and responsibilities of Ameri
can citizenship. Tne pure and hardy
jiorthern races which flowed into this
country dnriug the first century of its
existence as a nation were a wholesome
accession to its population, increasing
tne national strength as well as the
national wealth. The ignorant and
vicious alien and depraved masses which
have poured across the ocean from
southern and eastern Europe within the
last twenty years . are an element of
weakness arid danger. Their crude
but their dense ignorance and depraved
morals make them a scourge of constant
peril to our political ana social safety.
They are more dangerous as a social
than as a political force. It is bad
enough that these creatures are voteis;
that the ballot of a stupid and vicious
oriental from the confines of Russia.
barely Europeanized and not at all
Americanized, cast into the evil side of
the scale by a corrupt merchant of suf
frages should biftance that of an en
lightened American citizen ; that the
, vote of an Italian stabber, exploited by
the head of a criminal association,
should offset that of a law-abiding per
son, inspired by high public motives.
But it is worse that the poison of these
savage and degraded peoples should
enter into the blood of our social life,
perverting civil order, corrupting law,
palsying justice, destroying the founda
tions of society and breaking down the
restraints of vice, that the Mafia should
introduce terrorism and assassination
into the macninery of our city govern
ments, and that infuriated mobs of
Huns and Poles should introduce
Anarchy, riot, arson and slaughter into
our industrial life. This is the intoler
The editor of the Goldendale Courier
makes a curious statement with reference
to the habits of the topers of that town.
He says : "Whiskey is imported into
this city in bottles and sold to men who
take it into an alley and ' drink it.
They leave in every bottle an average of
three or four tablespoonfuls." -These
are very curious charges. Drinking in
an alley might be overlooked but when
we are assured that three or four table
spoonfuls are left in every bottle, it is
just as much as to say that the topers of
that town get so beastly full that they
are not able to finish "the rear of the
D UTCH A ND IRISH PA TRIO TISM.
Some people don't like the Dutch and
others don't like the Irish but one thing
can be said for both ; when a Dutchman
or an Irishman gets into a shindy in
which he comes out second beBt that's
all there's of it. You never find him
threatning to bring over the big army
and navy of the mother country
to punish the Yankee that licked
him. He would die first. He's an
American citizen he is, and owes no
allegiance to and claims no protection
from no foreign prince or potentate on
earth. And so patriotic and devoted to
his adopted country is he that if . neces
sity arose and Uncle Sam wanted to take
it easy himself, he might sit down in his
rocking chair while the Dutch and the
Irish would clear the country of every
internal foe from New Orleans to Mani
toba and of every foreign one from New
York to China.
A CONSTITUTIONAL DEFECT.
It cannot he thought strange that
foreign nations should consider a consti
tution very defective which grants the
power of making informational treaties,
wherein the right of foreigners sojourn
ing in the United States are guaranteed
by this nation, while at the same time in
such a case as that of the New Orleans
affair, the Federal government has no
more constitutional right to interfere
with the course of justice or the punish
ment of the offenders than has a justice
of the peace in the back woods of Ore
gon. Still, this country has worried
along, tolerably well, for considerably
more than a century with this same con-
stituion she is not likely to be in a hurry
to remedy the defect just to please a ' lot
of hot-headed Italians.
Chicago at this moment presents a
powerful illustration of the utter corrup
tion and rottenness inherent iu the gov
ernmental management of our large
cities. Two men are running for mayor,
both belonging to the same party, and as
the election campaign progresses each is
vying with the other in promising that
if elected he will make his administra
tion democratic "from scrub woman to
mayor." O ! for some moral sausage
cutter that would make mince meat of
them both. Public economy, public
safety, public honesty these are minor
considerations. Nothing is of any value
save party and spoils.
The Popolo Romans a leading paper of
Rome, Italy says :
Ir we cannot obtain the solemn rights
which one great people owes to another'
we will at least allow ourselves the satis
faction of sending . back the American
vessels filled with wheat for our mar
kets, and return to the Yankee breeders
their trichinqced meat. .
The Chronicle the leading paper of
The Dalles Oregon says : If you do Mr.
Popolo Romans we will send your vessels
back filled with hand organs, monkeys
and macaroni. If this means war
Popolo Romans can make the best of it.
Italy's claim for redress in the case of
the eleven Italians massacred at New
Orleans was based on the fact that a
New Orleans jury had acquitted them.
Now if Humbert had only waited a little
while he would have seen another New
Orleans jury solmenly pronounce the
lynchers innocent, and what would
Humbert do in that case? If he would
not go back of the court . record in tbe
one case he should not in the other. It's
a poor rule that won't work both ways
DANA'S VIEWS Off THE ALLIANCE.
Farmers to Wield an Important In
. fluence. Bat Cannot Maintain Party
Charles A. Dana, while in Atlanta, Ga.,
on his southern tour the other dav. said
that Cleveland, if nominated, would lose
New York by 50,000 votes. Asked about
the outlook for 1892, he said :
"Nobody can tell. The farmers' alli
ance is an important factor in the Ques
tion. It depends on the amount of
damage tney will ao to the republican
party in the west and the democratic
party in the south, rnow the farmers
alliance in the south proposes to be
democratic. It is held back Dy the negro
question. That dominates everything
here. There is no such balance wheel
in the west, and the alliance is bitter
against the republican partv : thev came
from that party and you know when a
member of an organization has left it he
is more bitter against it than its original
onrxments. If the farmers' . alliance in
the south should grow to such propor
tions that the negro' question would be
considered unimportant, it would then
smash the democratic party as far as it
Is Disease a Punishment?
The following advertisement, published
by a prominent western patent medicine
house would indicate that they regard
disease as a punishment for sin :
"Do you wish to know the quickest
way to cure a sever cold? We - will tell
you. To cure a cold qickly, it must be
treated before the cold has become set
tied in the system. This can always be
done if you choose to, as nature in her
kindness to man gives timely warning
and plainly tells you in nature's way.
that as a punishment for some indiscre
tion, you are to be afflicted with a cold
unless you choose to ward it off by
prompt action. The first symptoms of a
cold, in most cases, is a dry, loud cough
and sneezing. The cough is soon followed
by a profuse watery expectoration and
the sneezing by a prosuse waterv dis
charge from the nose. ' In severe cases
there is a thin white coating " on the
ton true. What to do? It isonlv necessary
to take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
double doses every hour. That will greatly
lessen me severity oi ine cola ana m
most cases will effectually counteract it,
and cure what would have been a severe
cold within one or two days time. Try it
and be convinced." Fifty cent bottles for
