COUWTY OFFICIAL PAPER.
DALLAS, SATURDAY, JUNE 25.
; Class Citizenship.
In the House, on the 20th of May,
the consular appropriation bill was up
and an amendment jprqposod providing
for a Minister at Rome, instead of a
Consul. ; This was opposed by a major
ity of the members, whereupon a New
York paper made the following rq
marlc, which is endorsed by, the Mobile
'Let the Trii-h Catholics and German
Catholics, who have heretofore affilia
ted with the Radical party, read the
debate i$ the House and ponder over
'Such utterances are entirely wron.
They have a tendency to build up a
class citizenship, that is, for the well
bclag ii our Govermiicnt, extremely
It has been the proud boast of Amer
icans that our form of government is
the best the sun ever shone upon.
This being the ease, it is to the inter
est of all mankind that it be perpetuated-
This cannot be 'done unless we
maintain a homogeneous citizership.
Wje want no jealousies to exist between
different creeds or nationalities that
may be within our national borders.
Such things lead to civil war, as we
linow by sad experience.

United Stafes his home, and we must
Strive by all the means in our power to
have him forget he is anything but an
American citizen. The alien, when he
is naturalized, swears that he wilt no
longer bear allegiance to the govern
ment of his native land ; and hence we
must not tempt him to form a separate
clan and oppose his fellow citizens born
here. .The safety of our government
lies in its ability to absorb the foreign
element into that originally forming
-Political parties make a grand mis
take when they nominate men for office
81 m ply for the sake of controlling the
vote of a foreign element A German
or an Irishman, when he is naturalized,
is not a German or an Irishman any
longer, but an American, and every
thing that would lead him to suppose
he was regarded in any other light than
as an American, should be left unsaid
We would as soon have an officer
"elected who was born on European soil
as a native, if his fitness entitles him to
that position j but we do object to for
eigners being put up for office merely
to catch the vote of foreign elements.
What good reason is there for call
ing upon Irish and German Catholics
to entertain feelingsof hostility toward
their own government simply because t
refuses to send a Minister to Rome ?
This class of persons, whoso prejudices
are thus sought to be aroused, have no
legitimate interest in the welfare of It
aly. They are not citizens of that
The political history of all nations
teaches that no Staj has been destroy
ed except when, by conquest or any
other means,a large foreign element has
been added. It should be the po'icy
of the United States to invite Strang:
ers to our country only so fast as they
can become thoroughly Americanized
and imbued with a love of our institu
tions; and hence it becomes the duty
of the newspaper press to exclude all
such-advice as that above quoted.
TJie election of city officers was held
in Portland oa Monday last. Scarcely
any interest was taken in the contest,
and a small vote was polled. Hallcck
(Dem.) was elected in the 1st ward ;
Congle (Rep.') in the 2d, and Fesser
and HillReps.) in tW3d ward. The
Council now stands, Republicans 7,
Democrats 2j a gain of one Republi
can since last election."
A. L. Bancroft & Co., 721 Market
street, San Francisco, announces that
the 2d volume of lthe "War between
the States," by Alex. II. Stephens, is
ready for delivery to subscribers. As
Greeley's conflict is the best and most
reliable history of the rebellion, so is
Stephen' work the most perfect history
from a Southern stand point. No poli
tician should be without Stephen's his

Is Oregon for Repudiation t
The Statesman discusses the "ques
tion in these words:
We are repeatedly asked by the
Democratic papers of Oregon whether
we still think the " vital eighth" reso
lution .meant repudiation. Say they,
'If that meant repudiation Orcgen has
endorsed it," and hence they infer, if
the argument is good for anything, that
it is tight.
Now we are loth to admit the dis
grace and shame of our own State,
and indeed do not admit that repudia
tion is endorsed by a majority of the
legal voters of Oregon.
It will be remenibcred that while in
the extreme south and east of the
State, our opponents took the ground
that they meant repudiation, in the re
mainder of the State they .persistently
argued that they meant nothing of the
sorr. Speakers used a different set of
principles in different localities, and
the papers of the party differed as wide
ly among themselves as they did from
us. On the one question of office they
were united ; on all others their argu
ments were so contradictory that we
are forced to the conclusion that the
mass of their voters did not read the
Thus we sec that while the mining
region?, temporarily occupied by a class
who have no interest in common with
the permanent residents of the State,
gives a majority for repudiation of 1,-
120 votes; the agricultural and pro
ducing parts of the country, occupied
by those who feel that their country's
houor is their own, and her disgrace
their shame, give a majority against repudiation,-
of 780 votes, leaving the
State to be committed to this outrage
ous doctrine by a majority of only 310
votes, but little over one quarter of the
vote in the mining regions.
Having faith in the integrity of the
people it is hard to be compelled to say
that our beloved State is committed to
this scheme of iniquity; but if s-ho is
not, the present appearance of things
is, to say the least, suggestive.
President Grant has sent a message,
on the Cuban question, to both Houses
of Congress, that seems to cause some
excitement in political circles. The
mentiou made of it by the telegraph is
so brief that we are not able to judge
certainly of the objections to "Mr.
Grant's views of the matter, or what
particular features are objectionable,
but knowing that the President has
heretofore been equal to the task, we
are disposed to believe that he sees the
right way this time.
Of late it has become the custom for
persons to throng the Capitol and seek
to obtain class legislation, whether their
cause was just or not; and from what
has been given out, it It very question
able whether the Cuban insurgents
have any other organization than "that
of guerrillas. If that really be the
case Grant's message -is well-timed;
but if the contrary can be shown, the
President will, no doubt, be willing to
do what is ri;ht in the premises.
Certainly the Cubans cannot ask the
United States to recognize their inde
pendence, when they have no govern
ment. Whenever the insurgents shall
exhibit their ability to form a govern
ment, and their willingness to obey the
laws of their own enacting, then will it
be time enough to knock for admittance
within the family of nations. The
idea that the United States Govern
ment is to be lobbied into the support
of every rebellious scheme of discon
tented cubjects, is too wild for serious
It is eminently proper for the cause
of humanity that our government
should interfere and put a stop to the
atrocious manner in which the conflict
in Cuba is conducted on both sides.
If the insurgents find fault because
our government criticises their acts of
cruelty, it is only another evidence that
belligerent rights should not be accord
ed. Until we hear more of this mat
ter, we are disposed to believe that
Presidents rant is in the right.
It is said that Jo Lane is a candi

The thermometer stands at 97 at

The China Question.
The wisdom of a majority of ."the
American people is almost always right,
and their councils equal to any emer
gency. . The Chinese question has been
a great stumbling block in the way of
the people on the Pacific coast, and the
whole white population, regardless of
party, have regarded the immigration
of Chinese to this coast with a great
deal of jealousy. We all feared that
the statesmen in tho East would carry
their humanitarian schemes to such an
extent that Chinamen would be eligi
ble to citizenship, and that designing
men might import Chinese here to the
injury of the nation. To ward off the
probable contingency, it was only nee
essary to- educate the common people
to a personal knowledge of ahnon-eyed
foreigner, and the work of self protec
tion was commenced.
Stewart, of Nevada, has introduced
a bill into the Senate to "prevent con
tracts for service," which will at once
stop the importation of the lower class
of Chinese. In support of this bill,
Mr. Stewart said : "That in makiug
coolie labor contracts the Chinese con
tractors took advantage of the peculiar
religious views of the Chinese tl pro
vide for their return to their native
land, dead or alive. These contracts
were for four years and the Chinaman
dared not break the contract for fear,
in case of death, his body might not
be returned to his own country. The
bill would break up this coolie system
TO prohibiting contracts for a longer
period than six months, while it also
provided for tho return of the Chinese
to their ovw country. This would be
long enough to enable immigrants to
pay the expenses of their passage, and
not long enough to make their impor
tation as a sj'stem the means of profit."
Resides the reasons givflu above for
proving the bill will correct the evil
sought to be righted there are others,
among which is opposition to the pro
posed legislation. The friends of Chi
nese labor see that thoy can no longer
make such vast sums of money out of
this second slavery. One of the most
bitter opponents to the bill is the Chi
cago Times, a radicalDcmocratic pa
per. This opposition, or, in fact, any
hostility to Stewart's bill, proves its

days in summer and three in winter to
make the route. Two horse hacks will
be run for the present from Corvallis to
McMinnville, and from the latter place
to Portland four-horse stages will be
As we have before said, the value of
this line to the country through which
it passes, will, from the first, be mark
ed. It will save to the citizens of
Polk county many dollars paid out as
traveling expenses, for which no value
is received, besides the money disburs
ed by the company will be consider
able. Passengers for Portland will find,
not only a small saving in money, but
at least two days in time by using the
new line of travel. We hope that the
amount of travel will soon justify the
company to put on coaches throughout
the whole line, and that it will find it
profitable to make the through trip in
A. Quarrel'. They have, in San
Francisco, a medical college known as
the Toland Medical College. Now
these Toland fellows are a selfish set,
and think that they are the only per
sons that should pretend to give in
struction in the healing art. Well, the
faculty had a quarrel the other day,
and four of the Proefessors resigned.
Now, we wouldn't have mentioned this
little unpleasantness, only those fellows
have witnessed, with marked satisfac
tion, the obstacles thrown in the way
of the success of our Oregon schools.

announce that an exposition of manu

September 21st, 1870, and continuing
until October 15th, 1870, to which ar
tisans, manufacturers,' inventors, and
those engaged in the production of
works of art and ingenuity are invited
It would be an excellent idea for
Oregonians to place on exhibition, at

productions, such as wheat, oats, fruit

productions are superior to those of our
neighbors, and we should seek every
opportunity to let those neighbors know
