Tlic Election in Washington. Terri
The election of Mr. Garfield as delegate
to Congress from Washington. Territory,
under all the circumstances, is a signal
illustration of what may be accomplished
by earnest, determined work, and we con
less that we are agreeably disappointed
at tho result. "We were inclined to the
opinion that the Republican party had a
majority of the legal voters of that terri
tory : but the opposition which confront
ed Mr. Garfield at the onset of the cam
paign was enough to appal any but the
do ton t heart.
Besides the Democratic party, properly
speaVing, there appeared to be a wide
spread disalTection among Republicans,
and thKmdicatioiis were that it would be
impossible- unite the party in support
of the nomine". Put as the canvass pro
gressed it became evident that the disaf
o lection in the parly Vv-as mostly on the
surface, and extended but little beyond
t. nnv.hil ciioue." many of whom had
been raised from the obscurity to which
they belong, and to which they will soon
return by the man whom they t reach er-
ously conspirci to defeat. Appreciating
hi superior ability, and jealou3 of his
personal popularity, they determined, by
the most cowardly means ever resorted to
in political life, to defeat his election. The
extent of this treachery is hardly yet
known, but enough is knowu to consign a
majority of the Federal appointees to an
eternity of. infamy. They may as well
commence making up their accounts at
once, for the day of settlement is at hand.
The election of Mr. Gar tie Ul under
these circumstances, is a triumphant v'uli
6ation of his character, and is the result,
in a very great measure, of his own per
sonal exertions. Seeing what he had to
moot, bo " rolled ur his sleeves and went
to work," and his speeches among the
people appear to have been a succession
of triumphs. From, the first day of the
canvass his prospects brightened, until
election day, when the people, in thunder
tones, spoke the verdict which seals the
doom of Democracy and treachery, in
Washington Territory.
In striking contrast to the conduct of
the official clioue was the action of Hon.
Ih.wooD Evax.s, who, it will be remember
ed was nominated by President Grant, as
Associate Judge, in Washington Territory,
but who wdfc rejected by the Senate, for
supposed sympathy with the Johnson
Democracy. Forgetting this severe re
buff, Mr. Evans worked with a will for
the election of Mr. Garfield, showing that
whatever may have been his short com
ings in the past, he was willing to show
his faith by his works.
Indeed the entire party went to work,
and we dare say will continue to work
until the newly appointed Federal officials,
who have betrayed their triends, are re
moved from ojlicc ! and replaced by bet
ter men. Let Gov. Flanders, Marshall
llitz, Judge Dennison, Assessor Howe,
Collector Wilson, and any others irho have
betrayed, their parly feel the weight of the in
fluence which has elected Hon. Salucius
Garfield as Delegate to Congress, in spite
of their treachery.
We have been anticipating with pleas
ure, the accomplishment of this great un
dertaking. And now the deed is done.
The last rail has been laid, the last spike
driven. The iron-horse has traversed the
continent from Sacramento to the modern
Athens. On the 10th of May. a little
more than four years ago, Irom the day
ground was broken the strokes of the
hammer were heard from one side of the
continent to the other, as the work was
finished. We can but regard this as the
eighth wonder of the modern world.
Difficulties which would have seemed in
surmountable in the infancy of railroads
have vanished. The track which has giv
nn fm rnnntrv inter-oceanic communica
tion, and bound together its remotest
nnrfa with bands of iron, has found its
way over and through the mountains,
climbing up their rugged sides or tunnel
ing its way through the rocks, tilling up or
bridging over deep canyons stretching
across hitherto unknown sections of coun
try supposed to be, in the geographies of
our childhood, trackless deserts, until it
has united the fresh and bonyant civiliza
tion of remote west, with the more staid
civilization of the east. How well the
work has been done, it is not for us to
judge. It has unquestionably been the
object of the companies who have had it
in charge, to bring their lines together as
soon as possible. And in doing this, they
have no more than kept space with the im
patience of the people. There can be no
doubt that much of the work has been
done to serve a temporary purpose, but
if the communication which has been es
tablished can be maintained, we can feel
that we have a Pacific railroad, and that
in due time all defects in the construction
of the read will be remedied. Let us
hope that those in charge will exercise
such care as to avoid those terrible acci
dents which are not unfrerpient upon the
opening of new lines. We have not the
time, nor space, r.or means at hand, to in
vestigate the swindle said to have been
perpetrated upon tho government by
those connected with this enterprise.
There is such joy in view of its comple
tion, among the people, that they feel al
most ready to forgive those who have '
stolen from the pockets of so intangible a
person as Uncle Sam.' Unlike other
railroad enterprises in this country, this
has been almost exclusively under gov
ernment patronage. It has been a work
of national and not of local interest, and
therefore of national pride. Hitherto
railroads have been built when the
growth of communities has demanded
them, and there has been sufficient wealth
among individuals to carry forward the
work. In this case, the lines starting
from points of civilization have been run
General Johnson, of the McMinnville
ntrier, and the "impractical schoolmas
ter" of the Portland Herald, are just now
o-.vwed in a spirited discussion of the
" time honored principles." The General
does not appear disposed to submit meek
ly ' to certain theories advanced by the
school master, and has declared that cer
tain doctrines of the Herald are not
found in his copy of the Democratic Decal
ogue, in reply to which the school-master
reads the General a lecture, and with a
supercilious air " kicks him out" of the
party. 3 hit the General coraes back at
the pedagogue in such a style as to lead
to the conclusion that the rod and ferule
have lost all their terrors for him.
This controversy derives its principal
interest from the fact that each party
claims to represent the " views' of the
Democratic party both are steering for
the Democratic paradise, but disagree as
to the proper channel ; both are prescrib
ing for the same patient, but one insists
that the case requires a strong dose of
lepudialion, while the other thinks a
Chinese bath will answer the purpose bet
ter, with ait occasional dose of moonshine
in homeopathic quantities. In this con
troversy we think the General has de
cidedly the advantage. The school
master exhibits the most check the Gen
eral the most pluck; The sehool-rnaster
the most tact; the General the most brains:
The school master the most Democraev
the General, the most decency. The
out into the wilderness opening up hither
to unexplored sections for purposes of
settlement. We may expect ere long re
see a belt of population extending sever
al miles in either direction from the rail
road line and reaching across the entire
country. Drigham Young has already
shown us what can be done by means of
irrigation in reclaiming the -wilderness,
ami we shall not be surprised to see the
" Great American Desert" of our child
hood concord with towns and cities, and
bringing forth the productions of the
earth for the sustenance of a teeming pop
ulation. It is hardiy possible to enumerate all
the advantages that will accrue to the
world at large, to the people of this coun
try, and especially of this coast by the.
opening of this road. These are of a po
litical, commercial, industrial and social
character. Howies in his work. Our
New West," speaks of meeting people
all along the overland route, who were
waiting anxiously for the coming of the
cars, because they wanted to go nome.
Some were dissatisfied and wished to re
turn east to remain. Others wished to
visit their old homes, and return again to
their new ones. Yet among all who had
emigrated from the Eastern States and
left friends behind them there was an
earnest desire for u closer connection with
their old homes. Is it not true that there
are thousands of families scattered over
this coast, from the Eastern States that
have cherished the feeling that when
their fortunes were made they would re
turn to their former homes and enjoy
them, who, nowtthat the distance in time
has been reduced to a narrow Space, will
feel that they are so closely connected
with the cast that they can content them
selves to remain where they are. build up
homes, surround themselves with those
things which tend to buildup, and refine
society and thus make their western
homes equal or superior to their Eastern
ones. The railroad will do more to bring
about this result than all other influences
The industrial and especially the min
ing interests upon this coast will receive
a new impetus. It is in consequence of
these interests that the road has been so
rapidly completed. And now there will
be a revolutionary influence. Mining must
have been slow and expensive, when all
the machinery had to be carried six thou
sand miles by water, and then three or
four hundred miles inland over rough
mountain roads, by means of rude contriv
ances for carriages, in many instances.
Now the railroad can take everything
that is required in short time from the
machine shops of the east. Enterprise
will be quickened, the work will be
more thoroughly and systematically per
formed. The greatest "advantages how
ever are those" which will accrue to the
commerce, not only of our own country,
but of the whole " worid. Though these
advantages industry Trill also be quicken
ed. The pas-age to Asia- from our East
erd ports and irom Europe, will be much
shortened. This work is a long step in
the direction of making the whole world
neighbors With the completion of the
Sues canal we shall have rapid steam
communication with every important na
tion on the globe. And this will form a
new safeguard against national .disorder
and consequent war. In a political point
The Iriends of East Portland bsgin to feel
an air of conSdence m the place which is
truly refreshing, and their hopes are well
founded. The fact that East Portland has
already made astonishing progress is readily
observed by visitors to the place, and what
is to follow may easily be imagined fy those
who in the least realize the age in which we
live. Enterprise and Progress are the watch
words, and the Sentinels at East Portland
are on duty. We found ourself in that place j
cue day last week, and being surrounded by
much that contributes to the building of an
important city, we made memorandums and
here give our readers a faint glimpse of the
promising town.
The situation of East Portland, on the right
bank of the river opposite her big sister,
Portland-on-Wallamet, is so well known that
we need scarcely refer to the fact of its many
advantages, in a commercial way, so in order
to be as brief as possible we will proceed
to decipher the hastily made moms, above
ref-.-n ed to.
The first thing which attracted onr eye af
ter leaving the Portland Ferry boat, at the
East Portland landing, was the existence e-t
the Drdies, Umatilla and Salt Lake telegraph
line. The chief attraction a few Avceks later
will be the Oregon Central Railroad. Hie
next present indication of prosperity on the
most direct route, was the East Portland
Bank, .lames Ik Stephens President, Dr. A.
SI. Loryea and II. Logan Tellers, Hamilton
Boyd Secretary, This institution is in a new
building of ample dimensions, is supplied
with proper safes, is furui-hed handsomely,
and wears a business like appearance not or
dinary for small towns we should be proud
of such a bank in Oregon City. The busi
ness transactions at this bank, although so
recently established, show that it is to per
form an important part in the progress of the
place The East Portland Homestead Asso
ciation will soon be prepared to dispose of
lots and blocks on the Stephens' Addition to
East Portland, on one, two, or three year's
time, and money will be advanced to parties
purchasing, to assist them in building upon
the lots, the principal to be paid back in
monthly instalments. This plan will rapidly
increase the number of actual residents at
East Portland. Dr. Loryea, we presume, is
amongst the originators of this movement
as he has had the plan m view for several
years, to our knowledge, and his experience
observation and enterprise, will greatly fa
cilitate matters . . .Property in East Portland
is steadily advancing in price and at pres
ent rates purchasers are sure of good interest
on ari investment, inasmuch as there can no
longer be a doubt in the minds of any with
respect to the sneedv construction of the
Oregon Central Railroad. Pen. Holladiiy &
Co., contractors, have large real estate inter
ests at East Portland, and the Railroad Com
pany have decided to construct an extensive
wharf on that side, and for such purpose sev
eral blocks of land, adjacent to the river,
have been secured. The Company's car and
machine shops, which at present are some
considerable distance from the river, in the
vicinity of the place where the first ground
was broken for the road in April of last year,
will anon be moved to the river bank. . . .The
Oregon Asvlum for the; Insane, Dr. J. C.
Hawthorne proprietor, is located on one of
the finest sites in Oregon, at East. Portland.
There are at this time one handre d'patien ts in
the institution. Miss Dix, the philanthropist,
paid the Asylum a visit a few days before
wo were in East Portland, and she pronounc
ed it tb.e finest private establishment she had
ever vUited. . . .The Erooklyn Flouring mill,
and three saw mills, are located upon the
addition of Mr. Stephens, nnd there is, near
by, a water-power equal to any in Oregon,
excepting, that at this city, which is not
equalled, in the entire circuit of the globe.
Mr. Stephens will soon visit the Atlantic
States, and it is his intention while in the
east to purchas3 pipe for the introduction
of gas and water, to the entire place We
found several flourishing Orders in existence
in East Portland, and visited Washington

Messrs. A. B. Richardson, Dorcey, Joyce,

and will do much good. The officers art) :

There are in East Portland at this time, two

In a !nte issue of the. Snn Fran

notice of the Coose Bay coal fields.
The coal business at Coose Jay is
making a rapid and renewed devel
opment ; since tne commencement
of the shipping of coal from that
point in 1SCG to this point, never
has that branch of industry looked
so favorable as at present. Ye und
erstand that the East port Coos Bay
Coal Mining Company intend to
ship large quantities to this mark

burner, the mining engineer, who
has made a thorough survey of the
