From Tomeroy's Democrat,
The Republicans have gone to
the trouble of packing the Supreme
Court, in order to obtain a reversal
of the Legal Tender decision.
That decision affirmed that Con
gress had no right to change the
value of contracts; that a bargain
was a bargain ; and that there ex
isted no authority in the United
States to make a man accept pay
ment in any other medium than
the kind bargained for. If a per
son promised to pay in coin, Con
gress had no power to authorize
him to pay in any inferior curren
cy. The exact point decided was
that the legal-tender act did not
compel persons to receive paper
money worth anywhere Irom thir
ty to eighty cents on the dollar, for
debts on contracts executed previ
ous to the passage ot the act.
Previous to that time all transac
tions and bargains were based up
on gold values, and all these bar
gains were to be executed
in the spirit in which they were
made, and anv that are now out
standing must be paid in coin or
The Republicans are not satisfied
with this decision. They have
gone to the trouble of packing the
Supreme Court, through the agen
cy of the President and Senate of
of the LTnited States, in order to
reverse it, oy appointing new
judges pledged beforehand to their
The decision will probably be re
versed, and then
Congress will have full authority
to order the payment of all public
and private debts in any currency
or medium that it pleases. And
there will bo no one to say nay.
It authorized the payment of debts
contracted in gold, at a hundred
cents to the dollar, before 1802, in
paper money intrinsically not
worth a cent, and nominally only
worth from forty to sixty cents on
Now, what is to hinder Congress
from ordering that all debts con
tracted after 1802 shall be. paid in
CTirrency worth about forty or six
ty mills to the dollar? Where
will the bondholders be -then '?
AVhat redress will they have?
Will a new shuffle of the Supreme
Court help them ?
If the bondholders can stand
this wo can. There is about -$2,-500,000,000
of paper money and
bonds afloat. The time may not
be far distant when Congress mav
appropriate a one-dollar bill to
wipe the whole thing out. Stran
ger things have come to pass.

Speech of Hon. J. S. Smith.
Mr. Smith, of Oregon. It will
not be expected by the House that
1 can make, in the space of ten
minutes, anything like a satisfac
tory statement of the local reasons
for the passage of this bill. I will
not ettempt it ; nor yet will I accept
of the extension of time which the
House has tendered me. I want
to pass this bill to-day, and do not
care to make a speech. Rut I trust
I shall have the attention of the
House while I make a very brief
statement. I wish however, to say
just this in reference to the matter:
that this bill is in the interest of
settlers or prospective settlers on
the public lands throughout which
this road is designed to pass. The
road will be about one hundred
and thirtv miles long. For fifty
miles of that distance the country
is settled ; for the remainder of the
distance it is not settled, a nd is not
susceptible of settlement unless
means of communication through
it, such as are proposed by this bill,
shall be provided. The road ought
to extend further up the AVillam
ette Valley. The bill introduced
by me provided for one the whole
length of the valley, and I had
hoped to have it passed in that
form. The commit teee failed to
report in favor of and extension of
the branch southerly, and I accept
of what they have reported. A
short road is better than none.
The Willamette valley, which con
tains two-thirds of the population
of the State of Oregon, has no out
let to the sea but by the Columbia
river. . That river flows across the
north end of this Willamette val
ley. On the west, between that
valley and the sea, a mountain
range extends along its whole
length. Through this range of
mountains to the mouth ot the
river we have no road of any kind
During the winter the river is
often frozen, and we are then entire
ly cut oil from all communication
with the outside world. Two years
ago we lost half a million dollars
by being unable to get our grain to
market when it was in demand at
good prices; we have not a wagon-
have not any means by winch we
can communicate witli the sea
when this Columbiarivcr is frozen
over. We want this load, to give
us an outlet to the sea at all seasons;
and we want it to open up the pass
we have found through these moun
tains to the settlement. It is not
a question whether by the passage
of this bill this land shall.be with
drawn from settlement; but the
question is whether by the passage
of this bill you will open up to
settlement a region of country
which otherwise never would be
settled. It is a question whether
it shall be occupied by settlers un
der the provisions of this bill, or
whether it shall remain a wilderness
in the future as in the past ; whether
it shall be the home of a busy,
thriving population, or continue to
be the home of the elk, and the
For twenty-five years, Mr. Speak
er, this land has been open to set
tlement, first under a donation law,
and now under the homestead law,
and yet no man has gone there to
settle. Xo white men ever went
there until they went to find this
pass for a railroad to the sea. The
red man never lived there. It is a
forest, an Oregon forest, such, as is
found nowhere else prehaps in the
world. And no settler will ever
go there unless there is a railroad
through the pass connecting this
Willamette valley with the sea.
In that event some of the smaller
valleys will be opened to settle
ment. The lands are rich. The
timber is abundant. It is valuable.
But the land and the timber will
remain in the condition they now
are for a hundred years to come if!
this.road is not built.
I have a letter in my hand from
one of my constituents settled in
one of the valleys in the same
mountain range father south, who
has lived on his land for eleven
years, and has had a family grow
tip around him on it. His land is
still unsurveyed ; he cannot have
schools; he cannot perfect his title;
he is living there under the home
stead law ; is unwilling to remain
and does not dare to go away for
fear of losing his land: No man
with a knowledge of the condition
of the country and its future pros
pects would ever settle there in the
absence of this railroad. Xow,
this grant is a limited one. It is
barely sufficient to secure the
objects in vie w ; and I will state
this, that every man in Oregon, of
both parties, whether
line of this road or elsewhere, is in
favor of this particular bill, and
the man who votes against it here
will do that people and injustice
and a wrong.
Mr. Van Wyck. Will the gen
tleman allow me to ask a question?
Mr. Smith, of Oregon. I cannot
yield to the gentleman, as my time
is so limited, out of the ten minutes
allowed me. Mr. Speaker, the
gentleman from Indiana has
remarked in his a cry remarkable
speech that there was no Democrat
on the floor of this House who
would dare to support land grants,
I claim to be as good a Democrat
as the gentleman from Indiana
and I am happy to be able to say
that distinguished Democrats from
that State, who , are as well ac
quainted with, io public sentiment
of the people of Indiana as that
gentleman himself, will vote in
favor of this bill, and they will
receive the approbation of their
constituents for so doing. This is
not a party question, and cannot
be made such.
This policy really orginated with
the Democratic party. The first
land grant of any magnitude ever
made in aid of internal improve
ments was made for the benefit of
the State of Indiana, represented
in part by the gentleman who
moves to refer this bill. The
Wabash and Erie Canal -was con
structed under just such a grant
as is asked for this railroad in the
State of Oregon. The first rail-
road grant was to the State of
Illinois, and the bill was introduced
by Stephen A. Douglas and sup
ported by a majority of both
parties in the House and in the
ATnoriiKcv. In the Legislature
of 100 15, Hon. J. Q. Thornton
then of Benton county, and a life
long opponent of the Democracy,
prophesied m view of the reckless,
extravagant and unprincipled Jcgis
lation ot Jus party that tneir days
were numbered in Oregon ; that
the Democracy would probably
elect the Governor in 1800, and in
1870 would make a clean sweep
of everything. Xo honest man
doubts that Jas. K. Kelly was
fairly elected and fraudulently
defeated for Governor, and it re
quires no prophetic vision to de
termine what the result of the
coming election will be. In con
templating the wreck of his party,
the old Judge will have the mel
ancholy consolation "I told von
