THE COMING ;' OF . THE WEST.
The college commencements, -which
this week are being held throughout oar
state, are calling attention to the fact
that Oregon ia taking rapid steps la edu
cational advancement. - In spite ffeard
times pressure and the feeling that
college education is Jfltftlfy not to be
considered in days of dVpreesion. yet
the rosters of our highe Itulitutfons
show a general increase id gtndenta.
Not only is the present satisfactory; the
future is bright with hope. The day is
at hand when Oregon and Washington
are to rival their older sisters of the East
in giving to their youth alt the advan
tages of a liberal education. . ...
: Whitman -, college at Walla Walta,
which was founded as- a monument to
the martyr, Marcus Whitman, is on the
eve of a "great advancement. -'Started
by the efforts of President Penrose, a
young man born to lead, and possessed
of an inspiration like that given to the
prophets of old, an endowment of Jt 200,
000 has been so nearly assured that it is
only a question of a little time till the
whole amount, and more, will be
pledged. The citizens of Walla Walla
have given $50,000, and wealthy friends
in the East will supply the remainder.
Washington will have one institution
that will stand in the front rank of the
Christian schools of the West, and be
what its founder, Missionary Eels, in
tended a mighty monument to a noble,
NO LANDLORDS IN OREGON.
' Minnesota, North and South Dakota,
. and some of the other western states are
cursed by. reason of the large holdings
of non-resident or corporate land hold
ing, Farms covering many miles in
extent are operated by one manage
ment. Daring the seeding and harvest
ing seasons an army of men is required
and employed; during the remainder of
the year a large part of these laborers
awe wandering from place to place seek
ing labor or begging "for a ' living. The
net profits of the business are sent out
of the state, and art. used out' of the
state, and largely out of the United
States. ; "'.. r : :
The unfortunate conditions incident
to . absent landlordism in' Ireland and
Scotland are being felt, and will be more
felt in these' states.'' The Creator has
done much for those states which he has
sot done for Oregon ; bat in depriving
as of broad level prairies, He has made
it inconvenient, if not impossible, for
one person of corporation- to -operate or
control a large territory within our
state. Our mountains, hills and can
yons are inconvenient, bat they are
after all, a great blessing. Our lands
mast, from necessity, be tilled by men
-who own small tracts only ; And these
mast reside upon them. Thus the pop
illation will oe permanent and will be
home-builders. Cultivation by small
tracts is always conducive to better cul
tivation and greater wealth ; the profits
are expended or invested- within the
state. Permanency of population tends
to the building of homes ; ' these require
churches and schools, and these make
community contented, prosperous and
Oregon will never be cursed with ab
. -sent landlordism, and for this reason, as
"well as many others, it is a most desira
ble land for the home-seeker.
THE PRESS AND FREE SILVER
upuu ncariy every question ot na
tional interest the press of the country
is divided, and the ablest journals are
often upon opposite sides. This is. ana
long has been, true respecting the tariff,
the banking, and revenue questions,
upon tne snver question one is im
pressed with the unanimity of the lead
ing newspapers North and . South
Whatever may be said as to the motives

oi a great newspaper. it mnst .be con
ceaea tbat their editors are men of
brains, who give careful thought and
etuly to all important questions, and
the fact that the more influential papers
of the country are opposing the free and
unlimited coinage of silver, ia a verv
strong indication that the nation wii
never adopt the plan. -

DALLES CITY -1EBT.
Tte bonded indebtedness of the city
is bow $167,000, cpon which is an an
coal interest charje cf $9,420. Of this
indebtedness $100,000 will be paid' in
four annual payments of $25,000 each by
the revenues from " the water system.
Fifty-seven thousand dollars will become
due at one time, twenty-five years
hence. The semi-annual interest charge
upon this latter sum is $1,710, or $285
During the past four or five years
nearly this entire indebtedness bas been
incurred. Hence to overcome the defi
cit and meet the interest charge there
mast be a marked change in the manage
ment of the city's business. The men
to whom this work is intrusted are cap
able of handling it, but it win require
the closest attention, and no opportunity
to economize can be overlooked.
ALTQELW8 SPECIAL SESSION.
3overdor AltgeldT has called a special
session of the legislature of Illinois, one
purpose being to pass laws regarding
sleeping-car charges. We knew Altgeld
was . the friend of the laboring people ;
her proposes to have such law adopted
that the -poor laborers of the country,
the people who always travel in Pall-
man cars and have their boots blacked
by colored porters, shall not be robbed
by extortionate charges of this rich cor
poration. The iron workers, the car
penters, the brick-layers, the hodcar
ries and common laborers of Illinois
have much to be grateful for because of
their;overnor's though fu 1'ness for them.
If a special session costs the taxpayers
a large sum, it don't matter; laboring
people must have Pullman car accom
modations at lets cost. ' ' .

This morning all that was mortal of
Thomas S. Lang was laid to rest in Sun
set cemeterv. The services were held at
the family residence and were attended
by large number of the friends of the
dead man and ' his bereaved family.
Rev. W.C. Curtis of the Congregational
church, read the beautiful words of the
Episcopal funeral service and then the
choir sang Cardinal Newman's touching
hymn, "Lead Kindly Light." There
were no remarks or sermon preached at
either the house or grave, but the ser
vices were in keeping with the character
of Mr. Lang perfectly simple and sin
cere. The caeket was borne by Charles
Hilton,' John Marden, N. B. Sinnott, Dr.
Shackelford, B. G. Whitehouse and H
Jieronng. a large number ot carriages
containing prominent people who had
known Mr. Lang during his life in The
Dalles and had admired his - sterling
qualities, followed the remains to the
cemeterv. v '.. , ... . . .
The services at the cemetery were of
the simplest kind; no words of eulogy
were said, but only the comforting
troths of the burial service. The casket
was covered in a profusion of beautiful
flowers given by mourning friends. "
Mr. Lang during his residence in The
Dalles, by his unvarying kindness and
courtesy, has made lasting friends of all
with whom he came in contact. He
leaves a widow and two daughters who
mourn him as a kind and loving hus
band and father. His age was 69 years
inomas btackpoie iang was born in
North Berwick, Maine, on June 16, 1826.
After leaving the Friend's school,
Quaker institution at Providence, R. I.,
he engaged in business with his father,
James D. Lang, who was largely in
terested in lumber and shipping, besides
being an extensive woolen manufacturer ,
Daring many years of business success
Mr. Lang found time to do much for bis
state and locality. At his own expense
he imported from Europe cattle and
horses, which greatly, raised the grade of
stock in his vicinity, and his methods of
farming are still admired .there.
He served several terms in the Maine
legislature, both aa senator and re pre
sentative, and took a prominent part in
republican politics. When the rebellion
broke out, he was tendered a commission
of colonel by Governor WaBhburn. but
owing to' private reasons . he did not
qtfalify He has borne the title of
colonel since that time. His close at
tention to business began to tell upon
his almost iron constitution, and in 1867
he accepted the appointment of coromis
sioner to the world's fair at Paris. After
a -considerable residence abroad be re
turned home much improved in health
and in 1872 on the liberal republican, or
"Greely" ticket, he contested the con
gressional seat with James G. Blaine,
losing by a narrow majority, and carry
ing his home county by a flattering vote
At this time he had extended his lnm
ber shipping to Cuba, and was engaged
in trading with the West Indee. When
the Cuban insurrection broke out in
1873 he sustained heavy losses in the
island of Cuba, and through -the failure
of others in this country, lost a hand'
sime fortune. " This trouble, together
with that brought about by the panic of
1873, so undermined Mr. Lang's health
that in the following year he determined
to move to Oregon and' there engage in
the stock business with a relative, Hon.
J.W. NesmUh. : The change of life
agreed with -him, and for a time his

health returned ; bat four years later he .
was forced to abandon the stock busi
ness And remove to The Dalles, where
he -edited and published V the Wasco
County Sun for a number of years, and
established a wide reputation as a forci
ble and convincing writer. His edito
rials on the tariff, as it affected Oregon's
interests,' attracted much - -attention;
He waa appointed receiver of The Dalles
land office by President Harrison, and
held the position daring the administra
tion. . '
For many years past Mr. Lang has
held the .position -of special Indian
agent in the matter of the protection of
Indian fishing rights on the Columbia j
river. His unfaltering stand for justice
to the Indians won for him the admira
tion of all fair-minded citizens, and the
gratitude and confidence of every Indian
along the river.
