O. R. & X. SHARES SOLD.
. A committee representing certain col
lateral trnat bond-holders of the Oregon
Short Line & Utah Northern Bail war
Co., purchased on Tuesday at New York
138,272 shares ofO. B.& N. stock. If
this means what it appears to as to
mean, it is an unfortnnate deal for the
O. R. & N. Co. and for ifS patrons. The
road is just now working ont from un
der the hands of a receiver, under the
carefal and successful management of
Mr. McNeil. The condition which
forced the receivership was due to the
management of the road by the Union
Pacific, and the experience of the road
while in the hands of the Union Pacific
was certainly a disastrous one, as is
usually the case where a road is man
aged by men at a great distance, and
who are more interested in a " distant
road than the one in question.
The Short Line system runs through
an : unproductive country, and if it eon
trols the O. R. & N. stock, the latter
road will be so operated as to make the
Short lane a profitable property, and
not bo as to make the O. R. & N. either
profitable or popular. It seems to ns
that this is the aim of the purchasers of
this block of stock. As an independent
road, carrying the traffic of the North
ern Pacific, the Great Northern and the
Short Line, besides its local traffic, the
O. R. & N. is a paying road, and under
the present management a popular one
"We should regret to see any change. '
.To any one who has watched the evi
dence in ihe'Berger case, the action of
Judge Bellinger in directing a verdict of
acquittal, will canse no surprise. The
testimony against the defendant seemed
verv weak : too trivial, in fact, for ever
allowing the case to be commenced.
The matter now becomes more mysteri
ous than ever, but it would be a wise
thing on the part of the government
officials not . to proceed to blacken any
person's' character unless the proof be
stronger than it was against Miss Ber

THE NEW ASIATIC LINE.
Not being a seaport, we do not fully
appreciate the great importance of the
establishing of a line of steamships di
rectly to the Orient. Bat if we mistake
not, this is a very important factor fn
the development of the commerce of all
Oregon ; it is the opening of a market
for our products which will have a great
influence upon prices of fruit and cere
als. The trade with China in flour is
Already quite considerable. There is no
reason why the flouring mills of this
city, which already, have a large trade
cannot enter this foreign market. No
better flour is produced anywhere in the
world, and the capacity of the mills is
sufficient to furnish a considerable quan
tity of flour for export. The develop
meat of the trade of oar mills is a bene
fit to every wheat-raiser, and none real
ize this more than the producer, who
can always ' get from one to two cents
more at the mill than at the warehouses
for his wheat.
Few cities of the population of The

The latest advices received this morn

kets give ! encouraging signs for the
fruit-growers. The demand and prices
keep up, and a shortage in some ship

for Black Republicans; currants, (2 to

Mr. James Kennedy of Wamic called
at The Chronicle ofnen today and
wished, on behalf of the Wamic baseball
nine to accept the challenge of ' the
Hood River club to play at The Dallef
on the F Mirth of Julv. The Wamic
boys mean business, and are very de
sirous of meeting the club from the land
of the strawberries. Mr. Kennedy say
their tla1) is in good practice, and they
are confident of giving the Hood Rivr
nine a warm contest. The game will Le
a great attraction for the celebration.
and it is to 1 e hoped that the affair can
be satisfactorily arranged. If the mana
ger of the Hood River nine wishes to
consider the challenge accepted, Mr.
Kennedy would be glad to hear from
him through the columns of The
Chkonicxi, or otherwise.
