TUESDAY, - NOVEMBER 13. 1894
A . gentleman named Haller writes
from Goodland, Kansas, to the Orego
nian, in order to reach Oregonians and
tell them what to do and how to, do it
in regard to advertising Oregon and di
recting the tide of eastern emigrants
this way. - Mr. Haller among other
things that he fills a column of space
with, say s:
"Mr. Stearns says it is harder to get
people to come to Oregon than any other
western state. I do not think it would
be if Oregon was advertised as much as
some of the younger states, who are
trying to increase their population and
wealth as fast as possible.
, "My advice to your colonization soci
ety is to be very careful not to get up its
advertising matter as too flashy. Too
much .booming is not what holds the
thinking man, since booms all over the
country have left so many worse off
than before they invested. Get reports
such as your chamber of commerce and
state board of agriculture get out, and
with other good matter sent through the
eastern states,. I am sure it will do your
states untold good. H. M. Haller."
It is self-evident that Mr. Haller is
not acquainted with Oregon, or Oregon
methods, and his advice not to make
our advertising matter too "flashy"
provokes a smile. The advice to "get
reports such as our chamber of com
merce gives out" provokes another great
big smile and when those reports are,
by implication, said to be good, those
smiles double teams and force one into a
genuine cayuso laugh. Mr. Haller is
mistaken about Oregon not being ad
vertised. We are known from Thunder
Bay to the Plaquemine, and from Ka
tahdin to Tillamook, as the sleepiest,
slowest and least progressive people in
North America. We have a prolific
soil, a magnificent climate, the grandest
scenery on the continent; our crops
never fail, and we can grow anything
that can be grown in the temperate zone,
bigger, better, and more of it to the
square acre than anywhere else in the
world. Nature did so much that the
early settler quickly and unanimously
concluded that man had no bueiness do
ing much of anything, and he individu
ally and collectively proceeded to do it.
We are not an aggressive people, but
living easily, are content with our lot,
wnung to snare or our aoundance with
those who come, but not caring a conti
nental whether they come or not. If
people want to be cycloned in Dakota,
or deeslcated in Nebraska why should
we complain? There are millions of acres
of land here they are welcome to; but
why should we hamper their selection
of home or amusements. There are no
Cvclones to toV with rme'fl nrnnprfv liAr
- . M- I' . 1
and a house built on section 22 stays on
that section until it is removed by hand ;
but if Jones of Nebraska prefers to
dance to the tune of the devil's dream
across country with his property, why
should we interfere? Jones is not of
the slow coach variety. He is progres
sive, at least during the prevalence of
the tornado, even though he progresses
by gyrations and retrogressions.
Oregon is the best state in the union,
and us slow-going jld webfeet are satis
fied with it, and our lot. We are so
well satisfied that we are willing to wait
until "thinking people" get their think
ers to work and come here of their own
accord. Thinking people, who get their
honghts from prepared literature, fur
nished by land-booming syndicates, are
the kind who buy gold bricks, beat the
shell games, and fatten the green goods
men. We have not many of that kind,
but we have enough.
THE SHADES OF VICE.
himeelf talked about in connection with
his attack on the Mrs. Brown-Potter-Bellew
troupe of theatrical people a few
months ago, is again to the front but
this time he has 'something substantial
to stand upon. He has been slumming
in Portland and found, (bless his inno
cent heart), four places where gambling
is carried on. He gives the places by
streets and numbers, and there is not a
shadow of doubt but that he is not mis
taken. He was there, saw the games
played, and openly proclaims what he
has seen. He has done for Portland
what Dr. Parkhuret did for New York,
and his diecovery will not amount to any
more than Mr. Parkhurst's unless he is
backed up by the legislature. The
police knew just as well where those
gambling games were located before Mr.
Wallace called attention to them as they
do now, and they were just as active in
suppressing them before, as they will be
after his expose.
We mention this only to show that all
cities are alike and New York and Tam
many are no worse than "cities with the
same systems, but whose iineeters are
nameless. Portland is, and has been for
years! one of the worst governed cities
in the United States. Her rings are not
eo large but the material is the same and
the methods are the same as in New
York and Chicago. We do not believe
in gambling. . We look upon it as a vice
that has ruined, and will continue to
ruin thousands, pur mind may have
callous spots on it, but somehow we
never could see that there was such a
great difference as to what gambling was
done with. We fail to see now where it
is any worse, or any different, to bet $10
that the "kettle" would win, than to
bet that grain would advance in price,
to copper the ace-king than to bear the
pork market. Gambling with stocks is
as much gambling as with cards and
when one is suppressed the other should
be. Mr. Wallace has discovered what
everybody knew. Now what is every
body going to do about it?
THE RAILROAD COMMISSION.
The following letter reached us this
Editor Chronicle I 'have noticed
from time to time articles relating to the
railroad commission of Oregon. Would
like, if you have space in your paper, to
know what are the duties of the com
mission, and if a private citizen can
place a grievance before it for adjust
ment without cost? Who are the mem
bers of the commission and the address.
Very Truly Yours,
1. It is hard to say juit what the
duties of the commissioners are, as they
have never been exemplified. The gen
eral supposition is that the commission
should look after the interests of the
people, see that rates are uniform and
not exorbitant, examine the roadbeds
and rolling stock at times to eee that
they are kept in good order, to hear
complaints from private citizens, and
give, or suggest, such redress as the occa
2. A private citizen may place a
grievance before the commission with
out cost or anything else.
3. The gentlemen who compose the
commission, are General H. Compson,
Col. J. B. Eddy and Private I. A.
Macrum. Hon. Lydell Baker draws the
salary as clerk. General Compson
spends considerable of his time inspect
ing the militia, so his cddresB is un
known to us. Col. Eddy hails from
Pendlelon, and his hobby is the Prees
Association, so his address is unknown.
Private I. A. Macrum we know nothing
about, only that his address is Portland.
The last we heard of Mr. Baker he had
knocked the underpinning from beneath
"Imperialism in Rome" and was on his
way from Salem to Portland on foot
going by way of Eugene and Prineville.
The Albany Herald twitted us recently
in commenting on the upelessness of the
railroad commission, over the fact that
"one of our patrons" had filed a com
plaint with the board that he would
have to wait months to get settled if he
had to go to the courts. We have had
our attention on that little complaint
just for curiosity.' It has been filed a
month and no action has been taken.
Whether there will be remains to be
seen, but if our Albany friend wants to
cover us with humiliation we suggest
that he poke the commissioners up and
annihilate us with a decision in favor of
"one of our patrons." Let us know all
at once that the railroad commission is
of some value. As at present conducted
a 25 cent paper file would fill the place
occupied by the commission just as well.
Oscar Wilde says "a man marries be
cause he is tired and a woman because
ehe is curious." A recent wedding in
the Wilde family demonstrated the
truth of this epigram. The man mar
ried because he was tired living from
hand to mouth and the woman because
she had her curiosity excited to try the
experiment of trying to make a busi
ness newspaper man out of a journalist.
The woman is now tired, and the man
curious to know what made her so.
An Old Sonar.
When giants lived in ancient times,
Sing heigh, my boy, sing ho!
In good old lnglan'l, or foreign climes,
Bins: neieh. m v bo v. sine ho!
They carried things with a high old hand.
Nor strong, nor weak, could before them stand,
And they killed whom they pleased throughout
Sing heigh, my boy, sing ho!
But the giants didn't have things their
own way when Jack-the-Giant-kiiler ar
rived on the Ecene.1 You remember the
story. Recollect, too, that every age has
its giant-killer. We have our giants in
the form of all sorts of dread diseases,
supposed to be incurable. Our. Jack is
in the form of Dr. Pierce, who has
proven the expression "incurable dis
eases" to be a fallacy. Can you im
agine more potent weapons to assist, a
woman in killing the giant-disease,
than Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription?
It's the only guaranteed remedy for all
functional disturbances, painful dis
orders, and Chronic weakness of woman
hood. In female complaints of. every
kind, if it fails to benefit or cure, yon
have your money back. It's simply a
question of the company you prefer
the Giant or Jack !
