a good grudo, wlillo tlio load us it now

littlo or no wool fiom that country can bo
expected this season, as wool men have
already to a great extern ouiumcu ad
vances und mudo an augments for de
livery' of this hcubou'h crop to Arling
Wo also found thut Hoppncr had licon
ivnd still Is making a Btrong oirort to draw
tho trudo to that town, csiteclally mi flinco
tlioy have n-prospcot foru rullroiidto that
point; but wo were informed thut ut best
tlio toad to Hoppnor was a rough ono,
and had porno very heavy hills : and tho
fact of it liclug u smaller und less com
po.ltlvo iwlnt, nnd on a brunch lino,
would give it Binull chanco for competing
with Pondloton for the trudo.
Ilotuining wo thought best to tiy tholr
proiwcd routo to tho brldgo, referred to
above, bat when nliout ten miles out
inls.edtho way and woio compelled to
return via a circuitous routo lo the Hitter
road, and thonco to tho bridge. So far as
wo followed tho proiiosed road wo found
a splondld grado on which a road could bo
easily mudo and kept in repair. Tho
people of 1ong Creek, howovor, will look
out for that part of tho road.
Arriving at tho bridge, wo examined
tho structures. There are two, close to
gether, one ovor John Day liver, and ono
ovor Desolation creek j and wo found
them sound and substantial ; in fact In
much bettor condition and 01 u 111010 sun

Wo had hoard that it wa. iswslblo to
(hid u better grado up Trull canyon than
Terrell canyon, but utter oxamining tho
promises thoroughly, concluded it wnt
littlo or no Impiovoiiiont ovor tho grado
of tho presont read. Following tho road
from tlioh'idgo along the stream up to
tho foot of tho John Day hill wo found it
iu u very bad and rough condltioicausod
principally by rocks rolling down oil tho
mountain fiido und lodging in tho loud.
Tho road up tho hill Is in very ioor con
dition j full of locks und bowldorH; und so
narrow that it Is im,xMsiblo for teams to
pass anywhere on tho grado, und giving
no chanco for a team or more than two
hoi sos lo Hwing. Wo ulso found hoiiio
placcH whore tho bulldors of tho load had
lost tho grado iu ascending the hill, in
stead of pursuing un oven grado ull tho
way up. Wo found tho giado to lo uliout
ono and ono-foutth miles In longth, und
vcrysteop. Fiom tho top of tho hill on
to Uridgo creek tho read inns on a fair
gnulo, but needs to buvo stones thrown
out to muko u good toad. Tlio hill down
to lliidgo creok from tho south side needs
ropai'ing lwth us to removal of stones
and winding of tho grado; ulso instead of
tlio grado coming down abruptly to
wiinl tlm Uitloin it should extend on
ftirotind tho hill and descend more gradu
ally, Tlio road from Hildgo creek to
I Ca'iuus t-'ivok could lo made good by ro-
i niovlnif stonos and bowldsrs therefrom.

From iicsonal examination and obser
vation, nnd wluit wo have boon able to
earn on this trip, wo would rcsiieetfully
mnko tho following recommendations:
Fl st That tho Hoard of Trado take
whtitover Btops may bo deemed best
toward having tlio Ihldgo or bridges
over tho North Fork of John Day und
Desolation creek ocncd us fico bridges.
Wo would suggest that ncrhups tho coun
ty cottit. Inasmuch ast 110 road has liecn
legalized, could bo induced, were protxjr
Btops taken, to buy the bridges, ami open
them frco to tho public. Wo consider
their being oicncd oh frco bridges neces
sary to the hucccss of tho ljng Creek
road nnd to tho securing of tho bcnollts
to lie derived therefioni.
Second That tlio improvements men
tioned iu tlio surveyor's report bo made.
Wo estlnmto tho cost of such Improve
ment to bo from $1,000 to $l,i.'00.
Third That tlio Hoard consider tho
advisability und fix upon tho best method
of BccttrJirj :tn appropriation from the
Stulo ut tho mooting of our next Legisla
ture. to bo extended on tho road fiom
Pondloton to tlio No-th Fork of John Day
river. Such upn. epilation should not lie
less iu our opinion than $15,000, nnd wo
think it will probably require more. Hut
tills amount, wu think will go 11 long way
townid building a good road down Cumas

Tlio IIouso continued tho discussion of

it struuge that tho Democrats hud arrayed
tlicrasoivcs in dofcuso of internal rovonuo
taxation. For years Southern gentlemen
hud opposed ull eli'orts of tho govornmeut
to enforce the law, uud hud ho thoroughly
educated tlio ieoplo of tho South into a
belief that tho system was tyrannous,
that thoy had bullded up u great senti
ment in tho South that to defeat, und
vlolato, and destroy that Hystoin, by
fraud, uud violence, uud bloodshed, mid
murder, was but tho assertion of the God
piven right of rolcllion ugalust tlio tyr
annous enactment of a tyrannous gov
ernment. Republicans were not us
alleged in favor of fteo whisky und to
bacco, but wanted to remit the jniwer of
taxation to tho States, Tho bill was dis

out with a long tirade against McClcllun,
und said that us to Gen. Hancock, he
was also 0110 of tho military leaders who
woro true to the democracy. Ho then do
voted himself to detailing Voorhees' his
tory uud movements during the war. Ho
doi'euded Hayes title to the presidency.
Cleveland, apparently, had a warranty

yet, compared with tho title which Mr.
Hayes hail to his seat ho was in ikwhch
