FREE TRADE MOVEMENTS.
A movement is on foot to establish a
free trade journal in Boston ; and recently
a strong, free trade demonstration, has
been made by, a large numler of promi
nent business men in New 'York. This is
the natural reaction from excessive tariff
rates. "When the high tariff men became
rampant then the free tracers take the
field. There is no prospect ihat for ears
to come we shall get along without a tar
iff. The financial condition f the coun
try will not warrant the entirt giving up
of tbis source of revenue. Wj have tried
- I direct and indirect taxation ; and there
caa te no' question that the litter is far
1 popular with toe people. lmt a
' tariff which taxes important branches of
j industry out of existence is not a good
! one for the country. The old theory that
j a high tariff would reduce importations
j A hardly borne out by the facts, for ex-
cessive importations are now going on m
the face of excessive taritf rates. Our
tariff laws make iron, coal, and machinery
dear. YVe want a fleet of iron and wooden
merchant ships, and we can build neither.
The Boston Comtaerical Bulletin discourses
to the high turiif men as follows :
e have completed, in great haste and
at an enormous expense, a grand transpor-
tation enterprise, which we put before the
World with thr boast that it is to revolu
tionize its commerce, change all its cur
rents, and draw the rich products of ihe
nations of the East into our mi?rkeis. But
if we are really in earnest in making (his
declaration, and do not wish it to pa for
an idle boast ; if we desire to be consist
ent and to avoid making ourselves aspec-
tac;e for the derision and ridicule of the
civilized world we must cease to invite
tliis foreign commerce with one baud,

is very like a pair of shears, with no cor
responding part, and cannot be used to

we aspire to clothe ourselves. How' is the
East to-day prepared to co-operate with
this enterprise in encouraging the foreign
commerce which it is expected to bring to
our doors? Where are our ships to re
ceive it and bear it across the Atlantic, in
competition with foreign flags and bot
toms ; Had not Congress, if it means bus
iness on the? Pacific Railroad, better turn
its attention, in the next place, to the mat
ter of building up our" mercantile marine,
and of liberalizing the conditions both of

We were never fully in the Union till that

this coast will be described and discussed
with all the zest of a new discovery, and
every intelligent person who returns from
a visit here will contribute to enhance the

this must stimulate immigration and

THE OREGON CENTRAL R. R.
The steamship Or'rjlamme, of Sunday
evening, brought Mr. Holladay back to
Oregon, and we are informed that he has
perfected all his plans for immediately
completing twenty mile's of the road.
Those who may have been impatient with
the apparent delays of the past few weeks
may rest assured that work has never
been suspended on the liuefinee the first
shovelful, of dirt was removed try Presi
dent I. R. Moores on the 15th of April
18C8, and if twenty miles are completed
w ithin the next six months it should be
considered a blessed thing, after all the
obstructions which the company have
been obliged to literally fight down.
Take into consideration the cost and ex
tent of this work; the distance Oregon is
located from supplies for a railroad; and
then ask if it is not a little remarkable
that work has progressed as rapidly as it
has. Let no man who values his reputa
tion for honesty of purpose place any
more stumbling blocks'' in the way of
this road. The Oregonian of Tuesday last
Ben. Holladay. who has been absent for
about two months in San Francisco mak
ing arrangements for the prosecution of
railroad work here, returned by the Ori
jiamrne on Sunday night. We hear that
preparations are on foot for the organiza
tion of working parties and the immedi
ate resumption, of operations o the
east side ot the river. According to the
announcement made some time ago, a
sufficient amount of iron will be. here
within a few weeks of this time to Uy the
track from East Portland to the German
settlement in Marion county. It is the in
tention, we hear, to put on force enough
to insure the completion of this section of
the road by the close of the year. Our
people will now see that Mr. Holladay is
acting in perfect good faith with Oregon.
His enterprise should receive liberal
treatment at the hands of all our people.
We want railroads, and it is not the part
ot wisdom to receive with distrust or op
position any one wtio comes to ielp us in
a matter so vital to our present interests
and future prosperity.
Senator Williams left on the Chijtamme,
and the Herald is speculating' upon
the " whys" and " wherefores" of his de-.
parture. At last accounts the correct
conclusions had not been arrived at. These
guesses are more at random than many
given at the festival on the weight
of that cake on last Wednesday
evening. What a pitv lis. to compel a lo
cal to guess so hard such hot Weather.

be so kind as to tell the Herald all about

We learn from all sources that the In

much alarmed at the prospect of being
turned over into the hands of the military.
Mr. Collins, agent at the Alsea Sub
Agency arrived iu town the dy before
yesterday, and reports that a squad of In
dians from the Siletz. had got as far down
as his Agency, and were making their
way down the coast. They were stopped.
Mr. Simpson thinks the Indians on the
Siietz Reservation can be retained, but is
of the opinion that many of those on the
Alsea Reserve will run off. We saw a
letter last evening from the Umatilla Res
ervation w hich stated that a number of
the chiefs of that Agency wished to have
an earnest talk with Senators Williams
and Corbett. with a view to having the
Indian Department remain still in the
hands of the civil authorities. We are
satisfied that the military is very obnoxi

prove a great failure.
