Railroad Meeting at LaGrande.
On the 5th a larsje and cnthusi
nstic meetinor of the citizens of
Union county was hehl at the
Court House in La Grande, for the
purpose of expressing their sympa
teies with the people of other lo
calities in their efforts to obtain
legislative aid in the construction
of a railroad from some point on
the X. P. 11. R. to the navigable
waters of the Columbia river. The
meeting was organized by electing
Hon. James Ileudershott President,
and E. S. McComas Secretary. W.
W. Raker, J. R. Huley, A. C.
Smith and E. S. JlcComas were
appointed a Committee on Reso
lutions, and reported the follow
ing, which were adopted :
Whereas, The Union Pacific
Railroad Company has been ask
ing for the right of way, and a
grant of land to enable them to
construct a branch railroad from
some point on the U. I. R. R. to
the navigable waters on the Col
umbia river; and whereas, it ap
pears from the report of the Engi
neer, Col. Iludnutt, that this route
has natural, geographical and other
advantages, over any other pro
jected transcontinental route, to
connect the trade of China, Japan
and the West Indies with our
great Eastern mercantile cities and
Europe, therefore be it
Jitsoiver, That the recent move
made by the citizens of Portland,
Oregon, towards the permanent
organization of a railroad company,
is, in our opinion, a move long
neglected, but yet a move in the
right direction ; and whereas we
consider that the proposed route
presents every desirable feature of
a great national thoroughfare ; we,
therefore, ask our Senators and Rep
resentatives in Congress to do all in
their power to obtain ti e right of
way and a reasonable grant of
land to enable Portland, Dalles
and Salt Lake Railroad Company
build said road.
Jtesoh'eJ, That in our opinion
the line of railroad proposed to be
built by the P. P. fc S. L. R. R.
Co., offers great inducements to
capitalists than any contemplated
line of road of the same length in
the United States ; and in view of
the fact that the future prosperity
and development of our mineral
and agricultural interests must
shortly make that portion of the
country through which said road
must naturally traverse, a country
of greater wealth, be it further
Jlcsolvcd, That we will aid and
encourage said company in every
manner within our power in car
rying through the undertaking.
Spirited and appropriate remarks
were made by W. W. Baker, A.
C. Smith, Dr. J. I. Ilulsey and
E. S. McComas.
On motion of 3lr. MeComns the
President appointed a committee
of five to collect statistics in re
gard to the nature of the country
over which the line of road will

W. Raker, E. Shoemaker, Terry
Tuttle, E. C. Erainard and S.
Hannah composed the committee,
which were to report to the Chair
man within four weeks. After re
turning said report the Chairman
was empowered to call another
meeting to take further action.
Mr. R. S. McComas moved that
the Monntaui Democrat be re
quired to publish the proceedings
ot the meeting, with a request that
all papers friendly to the cause
copy the same.
The meeting then adjourned.

It is simple common salt. A tea

THE KING OF rAJN's DEMISE HIS
FKEAKS O-NCK IX OKEGOX.
rFrom the Sacramento Record. r
The .People, a weekly paper pub
lished in Indianapolis, gives the
following account of the death of
Dr. McBride, whose
FA XTA STIC APPE A R A X C E
is this city, as the '"King of Pain,"
seme months ago, excited thecuri-
"osity of the public. The iAo''
says his relatives are unknown, but
we are informed that the Doctor
had a wife, residing in Baltimore,
who was considered wealthy, and
who frequently supplied the pe'cuii
iary means with which her eccen
tric, wayward husband extricated
himself fvom many a difficulty.
The eleath of t his man, who was
known from Alaine to the Pacific
coast, will be read with some sur
prise, ami not unlikely by semi 3 with
regret. No human creature dies
without leaving something good
behind him, cither in act or char
acter. We feel at liberty to mention a
circumstance which occurred while
Tins st r a x e ; E c i : E a t r it u
was in the flush of his prosperity
in this city. Reckless, immoral,
improvielent, an empiric, a gambler,
a roue whatever the public may
consider him it elemonstrates a
strange and worthy trait. In the
course of his elissipation. Dr.
McBride became acquainted with
an abandemeel girl, whe was only
about I t years of age, and exceed
ingly ignorant. In a freak of gen
erosity he is said to have placed in
the hands of the abandoned child,
in the presence of a witness, the
sum of 0,700, on conditieui that
she would leave the city ami ge to
some small place, or another city,
and the re eelucate herself for some
honorable pursuit. He gave her
six years to accomplish this refor
mation, and showed her into the
street. The gentleman who wit
nessed this strange act remonstra
ted with the doctor, who replied
with a laugh :

A corre'Spf.mdent of the Cincin
nati (Jonnio read gives a cheerful
picture of the state of affairs in
Arizona. He thinks that civiliza
tion is making progress there, be1
cause the Apaches now do not
hang a man head downward from
a mesqnit bush, pull his skin off,
and bake his brains over a slow
fire, at a nearer point than three
miles from Tucson ; while three
years age) the red devils were in
the habit ot" amusing themselves
with such pastimes within two
miles of the capitol of the Terri
tory. Still, he says, a man who
goes to Arizona and gets back
alive is compelled to ele vote the
remainder of his natural life to
pulling the arrows out of him and
plugging up the hede's in his skin.
This correspondent further expreses
the opinion that army ollie'ers who
march eighteen miles a day, with
lobster sauce, champagne, and
canned ciiicke'ns in their wagons,
are not likely to achieve brilliant
success in catching Apaches who
ride eighty miles a day on their
fleet, little, tough mustangs, and
think nothing of it. Out of a col
ony eif one hundred and thirty-five
pioneers wlu went te Tucson in
1850, nearly every one has been
killed by the Apaches. Ninety
murders by Indians have been com
mitted in one county in a single
year. When an army ofiicer trie's
to push the Indians in earnest he
is transferred to another command.

COURTESY OF BANCROFT
Wade and the huggists.
The rage of Wade is fearful to
behold. He has turned himself
into a volcano of profanity. He
asserts that Grant has sent him
down here with a pack of damned
fools who, now that their work is
done, want to spert arounel the
West India Islanels and ?coop up
snakes and lizards. He sweats and
swears, ami swears ami sweats
in the hot sun until one could al
most imagine that his great soul
was just ready to jump out of his
body. The fact is Ben wants to
go home. 1 1 is work is elone and
he dem't want te leaf around any
longer. He objects to being the
figure head of a crazy lot of
buggists, who are incessantly talk
ing nbemt searabrei, umbelliferous,
and luminous orders, arachimhe,
coprophagi, anthropomorpha.', the
thorictes, ami other " damned
nonsense," as Ben calls it. The
other elay one of the buggists came
on board with a fat spieler strung
te a stick.
" "What in the name of heaven is

Spider was passing him.
"That Mr. Wade," said the
buggist, bedding up the spider, 'is
a beautiful specimen of thetarantu
lateel lycosa tarantula?. It's the
finest specimen I ever saw.'
The t)lel war horse gazed at it
one moment and then growled out,
"The hell it is! Take it away !"
Soon after another buggist came
on board with a three tailed fish,
and told Ben it was the most com
plete specimen of hemocersal ever
found. A more disgusted man
than Wade was when he received

and should she be sick, I try all I

and above all, never allow chil

Elliott, a negro member of Con
gress from South Carolina, made a
speech in the house against grant
ing a general amnesty to the peo
pie1 of the Southern States.
It is '
said the scene was quite an interest-1
iuor one. The Democrats all left
their se-ats and crowded the space
in front of the Clerk's desk, where
theyr e-ouhl see and hear the darkey
member. Of course, that individ
ual would speak against amnesty-,
for whenever the white people of
the South become reinvested with
the right of which they were tin
righteously and basely deprived j
by the Radical party, the days of
nigger membership ot the United
States Congress will be over.

Xew Orleans paper tells of a print
er who, when his fellow workme n

He kept to this resolution for five
years. lie then examined hisbank

Three out of five of his fellow

as workmen, and were discharged.
The water drinker then bought
out the printing office, went on
enlarging his business, and in
twenty years from the time he be
gan to put by his money was

Salaries of State Judges exempt
frcm the Income Tax-
Our "Washington corresponelent
writes as follows under date of
April 4th :
In the Unit eel States Supreme
Court yesterelay a decision was
maele in the case of Burlington vs.
Day. The defendant in error was
Judge of the Probate Court of
Barnstable coutrtv, Massachusetts,
ami the plaintiff in error was Col
lector of internal revenue. The
Judge paid the income tax on his j
salary uneler protest, and brouglit
suit te recover the amount. The
lower court held the tax to be un
constitutional, and awarded junelg
ment for the plaintiff. The Su
preme Court yesterday affirmed"
this judgment, holding "that the
judicial power is exempt from Fed
eral taxation. This being one of
the1 powers never granted to the
Federal Government remains un
altered and unimpaired, and in re
spect of which the States are as iu

Such a judicial deeision recalls
the edd time when the Consti.u
tiem and the laws were paramount,
and the decrees of the Suprene
Court of the Unit eel States were
final. That day has passed, and in
its place we- have the voice of the
judiciary stilled on the political
acts of " the thirty tyrants," an
Executive whose daily life is re
peated violations of law, a Con
gress who pass acts without regcrel
to laws, human or divine, and
whose daily wish is for another era
of ldood, that their rule may be
continued. In the face of this con
elition of things, I am surpriseel
that the Supreme Court is per
mitted te talk such treason as "the
re-served rights of the States,"
when it was stated a few days ago
in the Ilenise of Representatives,
by good Radical authority, that
the eld conelition of things had
passeel away, and that now we

ment. Look te) it, ye Radicals,
that such rank treason to your
party of much morality' and ad
vaneeel ideas be not disseminated
from the bench of the Supreme
