Is asserted ulsa with what (ruth we c.iunot
say that the railroads will soon be trans

tho same peron wlio control that corpora

any change will bo moro satisfactory than
Mr. Uolladay'a administration of our rail
to&d Interest, for while we do not claim
that tlio roads themselves have boon un
rsiksouably managed to the detriment of the
public Interests, since their construction,
Mill it Is beyond doubt that Mr. Uolladay has
thrown discredit on Orogon railroad inter
est", and has Improved or misimproved
his opportunities to control our politics and
establish sundry monopolies. All the peo
plu ask Is that tlio?o great public enterprise!
hhall be LoiH'wtlj' coustructed and fiirly

never again bo disgiaced by an attempt to
manipulate legislation and cjntrol partUuu
Another matter of grrat public Interest ro
tates to tho lino Of ocean fcteamers between
Oiegon A California, tho ownership of which
is to be tr.tnsfuned by this same arrange

to be carried on in staunch sels. Tho prs

The "Big Fleece " of California and oth
er Eig Flsecss.
About sixteen mouths ago the sheep-breed-lug
world of Amend was awakened lo a
considerable degree of Interest by an an
rounc3mcnt of tho shearing of p.n extraordi
narily heavy fleece from a French Merino
ram, tho property of Mrs. Itnbort Blacow of
California. The flcco was of f,uoh n weight
es to stagger tho believing powers of many
breoJors on the Allan ic lde, cotne of whom
openly expressed their incredulity in tho
columns of the National Live Stock Journal.
ilho Editor of that ppucr, with a praisewor
thy desire to have his readers correctly In
formed, proenred the fleece, and submitted
It to the Illinois Wool Grower's Association.
The fleece weighed, when given Into the
hands of a Committee of that Association
no lbs., but nt sneering bad weighed 51K lbs.,
and was cliltncd to be the growths of about
sixteen months. The folio ving is tho report
ol the committee, and the Live Stock Jour
nal's remarks thereon, together with other
to-ited fleeces, which are submitted to Interest
ed readers with only this remark. It is to
be be regretlod that when so much pslns is
taken in the interost ol truth that all the cir
cumstances aro not gien with precision,
for iu3t,'nce, in this case, why could not tho
exact llvo weight of Mrs. Macon 'n sheep
beou given and tho exact tlmo tlio fleece's
growth and that of tlio others in tho tabU",
nud then tho value of the cleansed wool as
set by a disinterested committeo ot manulac-
Hirers? J. Mi.nio.
YourcunmUte appointed to clnnuse and
report upon tlin Califnrni i fleece, beg to re
port: The we'gat of Heeco uetoro scouring
was BOlpnunds. It was put turougn two
selves. The first reduced weight to 13t
pounds. It was not clean. Wo ordered tlio
second, end it is now well scoured. Tlio
present weight is just 12 pound;. .vet the
committeo believe there nre two pounds of
burs in it now. The appearanco of tho wool
is much coarser than before scouring, and is
very uneven not in sny way a desirable
wool In rai'e. Wo do not recommend anv
flock-master to bit id Irom such stock, let
his flock liu line or coarse. The wool, wben
free of burs, not worth over 55 eentsa pound
In a clean state, while a pood Merino wool
would bo worth S." cents. The cost, of keep
is according to weight of carcass. The ram
that cut this tlspce Is very large for a French
ram supposed by thoso who have seen him
to wt.ighner300'pouuds. His flpvco, when
clean, sat ton pounds, at 55 cents per pound
is worth ?5 50. An American Moriuo ram's
