To the Readers of the Enterprise.
4 "With the present is.-ue the undersigned
assumes the proprietoi hip and dit.,i i tl
co'Jtrcl of this paper. It has been cus
tomary on assnrntn
the control of a miner
to give a long salutatory, promising what,
the editor proposes doing and what he
will noi, do. We will deviate lrom this
practice, and simply say that the paper
lu.s been under our control ior.the past,
mx weeks, attd we propose to keep it in
the same line as long as it remains in our
charge. Xur past record is familiar to
most of the readers of this paper. ad we
deem it unnecessary to make any extend
ed remarks on this occasion, prefeiring to
be judged by our acts rather than words,
li isQio new business to u having been
engaged in it for over ten years in
this Stale. We wis)) to say one word to
the citizens of this (own and county. A
newspaper in a county the size of Clacka
mas is an imperative necessity, and should
be supported byvery one who has an iu
teiSt in the future grow-ih of the couutv
at heart. We shall1
ma,ce the paper a
county newspaper, and while wed
expert to please thostwho are politically
opposed fo us. we will give them enough
county and other news ami misct iianeous
reading matter to pay t!,euiior their sub
scription. The larger the cii eolation ot a
paper, the more eif.-ctual wiil be i s iniiu
ence. The subscription I. si of ihe Entk.u
1 KTsk is at pre.-ent as large as aii count v
paper in the Stale. et we feel sail-tied
that IfK-re are many in this county who do
notrtaiize the importance ol sustaining
their county organ. We hope Unit every
Democrat in the conn y will not only iaNe
it as ti pleasure to support his party organ,
but a duty, and we desire all liberal and
thinking men wfto feel an inien -m in the
progress ol the county, of the opposing
party, to give us their stippnit. i'uning
aside politics, they are as much interested
in a live paper being published here as
the Democracy. We promise to make the
paper interesting to till classes, and hope
to receive the heretofore liberal support
of the paper, with additional increase.

Com'n out on the Chinese Question.
The Oregonian is becoming more bold
in i:s advocacy of the Chinese rights since
the election. In its issue of the 13:h it
s:iys : "
In the Pacific States and Territories it
has been the fashion to tax and otherwise
oppress one c!a.-8 of toreiu f-i the Chi

country civil riMs. that is. such right.
as will enubie them to make and enforce
Contracts, etc., and jrive them lull security
in peton and property. The I.)emouratic
paper alit ded to pe;ik?. of this as if it
were an outrage ajjjainst the superior
nce."' It evidently lens that there are
not civil rights" enough to go round."'
and that white people ought to have ell
there ;uo. It. further says : IJy (his law

eqna'.in will! every o?he: foreigner com
iiig to tins country. :tnd iiieSia'.e.s are pro
fobbed tiom mikii'g any distinction

that power: and the object tif this law l
to enable the Cliinim.iti to defend himselt
against thos? uti ..otistisutioital and op
pressive laws, which some, of the State.
and Territories have enacted. Hut. sas

cannot. It never could consistently wt h

i:i vioia'inn of the Constitution (his thing
fi is sometimes been done. The present
law ot Congress is intended to prevent a
repetition of it. We quote aaiii : A

with no restrictions that do not applv
equally to the white foreigner, nor can it
- ! oo-truct his immigration

i greater tmpeittments tnan those winch lie
iii the way ot the unnaturalized German
or Englishman or Irishman." - .Right again;
I but th
announce no new rule on
this subject. Xo S'ate ever had the right
or the constitutional power 1o hamper"
the Chinaman '-with any restrictions which
do not apply equally' to the while for

coming within its borders. The Courts
have n.liy settled these questions.
i heless some of the Slates have enacted
laws to discriminate against the ChlueH'.
and the ubteet of his counter law of Con
gress is to prevent a repetition of these
unconsihuior.al acts. without obliging
the Chinaman to carry every c ise up to
the Supreme Court ot the United States,
in order to enforce his t ights against un
constitutional State legislation.
There is a great deal of loose writing in
the Democra'.ic pre?s on thi- subject.
i hey assume that a Stale has heretofore
had fi riuht to bar out Chinese or impose
special burdens on Iheni. when such is bv
no means the fact. The States, since the
adoption of the ('onsti'uioti. have had no
i tght or power of the kind.
The Omjr.uUm comes to the rescue of
i: Celestial friends, knowing that the De-
..........r .i-i..... . ii 1 ...
ii.oc..;cy 01 un, .-ore m,i maKe an eiiort
to protect the white men from this influx
of the heathen rat-eaters into our State.
If there is no wav bv which the white men
j Can be protected in their rights through
legal interference, we are in favor of tak
ing the only alternative. Tin.' heathens
can not and sha;l t ot enjoy the. "equal"
rights of other foreign born citizens, and
if the Radical party af mpls to force this
upon them they will resist it with all the
power they po.' -ess. The American white
men are optui-ed to making this a mop
grid Government, and the part- in power
may as weil understand this matter now.
We bciieve with Hon. Frank Pixley. on
. I.: . , : .. : -1 . ,
'"I; qu'-s inn, u mere is no oilier wav.
take the torch and eesfrov i!ie ships t'mt
bring the heathens to our State."' They
are an injury to the white race, and if we
wi-h the Caucasian race to predominate
in this land, we must lake ell'eetive mea
sures to protect them. But the above ar
ticle i.s remarkably co jl to come so s :n
after the election. The Or,tntirir would
not havj dare I to thus openly advocate
the rights of the Chinese before the elec
tion, knowing that i's only show fcr suc
cess was by deception, and hem-e strenu
ously endeavored to cover up its designs.
There is one thin: that fhis advocate o!
Chinai-m may understand, and that is
j that the people of Oregon will find a wav
to protect the white men. and that un
friendly legislation against the heaihetis
will be enacted, and enforced. When
Congress rebels agun-t, the righ's of a
sovereign State, that State his the right
to set at defiance the powers that be. We

In the campaign just closed, the Demo

Radicals, and they claimed that the debt
had been reduced over SlUO.OOO.OtX) since

debt at that time was larger than when

larger than it was on trie 1st ot April and
steadily on the increase. The people will
find a way to reduce it ere long if the

To Rkti hx. It is stated that the Radi
cal candidate for Stafe Printer, who made
a short visit to this State to see himself
defeated will soon return to Washington
to take his place on the j o'ice. In his
lettei to the Radicals from Washington,
he said that 'he Mongrel ticket t amid be
elected, and that the people of Oregon
would not endorse the Democracy. Won
der what he thinks now. He 1ms prob
ably changed his mind. The verdict is
certainly against his presumptions, and
shows that even such a sage as Ihe edi
tor" of the t(t!e Journal may be mistaken
in his estimate. K ght or four years ago
he might have expected to be successful,
but the people have. their ryes open now.
and Radicalism is at a discount, never to
rate at par again in Oregon. " Fare ye

had o contend against, he compelled his

vote saved him. We hope that Judge

Thus it will be seen that a Supreme
Judge of Oregon holds his position by

White voters of Oregon, what do you

white voters are ovei ruled by fifteen or
twenty negroes in j-our State. Remember

Jud-je Shattuck's Letter.
Last week we published a letter from
Judge Shut tuck, in which he takes the
ground that (he fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments are " settled facts.' Nothing
can be a settled fact' un'ess it is based
on justice and right, and these amend
ments (so-called) never having been
legally adopted, cannot become ' settled
facts' before a free and independent peo
ple. If we were to accept every venal
and outrageous law passed by the Radical
scoundrels in power as settled facts."'
v. hat would be the need of an opposition
to them? They might declare that this
Government should be administered by a
perpetual power, and they be the power,
and the peaple should be silent, because
it is an "established fact." It is the duty
of every lover of. our former free institu
tions to oppose these would-be established
facts, and determinated resist them at all
hazards. The Radical thieves who ant
stealing our liberties would have an easy
conquest were the people all like the
Judge, ready and willing to "accept"7 their
infamous acts as settled facts. We do not
propose anything of the kind. We shall
continue to war on them, and force a re
peal by peaceable means, if possible, but
we shall never - accept" them as ' estab
lished facts.' We are gratified, however,
that the Judge agrees with Ihe Democracy
on the internal improvement and finance
questions, and. as the difference between
the Radicals and fi;e Democracy is so
great 01. these points, he will hereafter be
forced to act with the only national and
equitab'e party in the country the De
mocracy and we hope that he will put
on ihe whole armor, and not only oppose

policy, but also in all its infamous and

gave Mr. Smith near 250. Now anv man
of sense can see where the Radicals made
their gain-. It was in Multnomah county
that the Radicals gained, ami those were
money converts and Pen. Iloiladay's
slaves. The Radical editors are trying
hard to convince their readers that their
prospects are bright, and that success will
be theirs two years hence. Gentlemen, in
the language of a young Radical of this
place, before the election. " If yon. (ihe
Democracy) carry the State this time.'you

than this fact. We carried the State this

COURTESY OF BANCROFT LIBRARY,
From the Herald we take the following :
The Tualatin Navigation and manufac
turing Company have placed their saw
mill at Oswego in perfect order, and are
now turning out "a first class quality of
lumber. We hear that it h the intention
of this Company to erect a large and mag
nificent grist mill at this point, and to se
cure posrer and easy access it is their in
tention to construct a canal connecting the
waters of ihe Tualatin with those of Suck
er Lake. Tha power thns secured will be
unlimited, and in Ihe future will make Os
wego one of the busies' little manufactur
ing towns upon the Pacific coast.
On Mond iy morning, about 2 o'clock, a
daring attempt was made to assassinate
Dr. Tro'erin his bed. The Doctor occu
pied a room in ihe rear of O. &Xj. R. R.
Company's office, the window of which
fronted north upon an open let- The as
sassin finding the Doctor lying in the side
of '.he bed farthest from him. and being
unable to raise the window any farther
determined upon firing diagonally through
the headboard of Ihe bedstead, in line
with the Doctor's head. Fortunately for
him the aim was a little too low, the bal-
passing diagonally through a feather pil- 1
low entering the mattra?s at the sleeper's
side. Iking startled by the explosion the
Doctor rai ed up and observing the form
of a hatless mm at the window caught up
