Hon. John II. Mitchell has re-
turned to Oregon, lie was sere-,
naded in Portland upon his arri-
val, and in a short speech stated
he Would : now fcce ho3e -who
had misrepresented him during
his absence, and that in a phort
time ho would make a lengthy
speech and give afull aud saiis-
factory account oi uis Riewarci"
.We hope the Senator will keep
this promise. It will shame if
thev are not shameless his eie-
mies. So far as , the people are
concerned, who have watched nis
endeavors in behalf ot the State.
th speech is not necessary; for
every unprejudiced man in theKrom honorable old American fam
State, with full.knowledge of the
iacts, have all along 'given John
II. Mitchell credit of having
proven faimselt to be, by his own
work, the best Senator Oregon
ever had. v
It is only Corbett, Failing,
Ilarvey. Scott and their friends,the
O. 8.-N. Co., that have grumbled,
We would consider it a remark-
able achievement if Senator MiU
chell should make any:ot that
crowd blush; but we waut :to see

answer; but we would warn any
one against believing that How-

The contract for the city print

to the Bee. Befo e the

general war among the city daily
newspapers. Now everything
has quieted down, and nbt a word

of its cotemporanes.- 4
Don't be Bashful, Gentlemen.

A WOOLEN FACTORY.
rr m. i. .
; Tliere is now an enort ueing
made to erect a wole'n factory on
1 the Umpqua river, near this city.
Those who havo taken the trou
ble to read the articles " we have
published on the subject hereto
t fore, know fall well how fully we
appreciate the importance of the
enterprise. When we urgued the
building' of the mills no one eeem
ed to be in tavor of it; but now
several gentlemen have stepped
forw ard and are ready to take
i stock in large amounts. One gen
tlernan atWiiburis willing toin vest
5.000; another in this city will
take 10,000 in stock; another in
Canyouville will put m 5,000.
Heio are $20,000 to begin with
a lair start. - With a little exer
tion the rest ot the money ueeded
can oe raised, mere are many
i . mi "
farmers who would buy. 500 or
1,000 of stock, "and. there are
others who are not larmers who
would furnish the balance, if any
was needed." Roseburg should stir
in mis matter, a wooieu nun
would be of incalculable benefit to
this city, aud the opportunity to
secure it should not be lost. Let
us have tho woolen mill.

Unpleasant, tut True.
It is, painful to note ot late
v ears how many criminal- come
ilies. It is because they have been
brought up to be "above" hard
work. Meantime sturdy foreigners
who know the worth of a home
;n this free country, quietly take
possesion of the plow, the spade
and hammer. They dig and delve
as the .pioneer ancestors digged
and delved.1 Their strong limbed
boys and girls are put to the com
idol schools until they are old
enough to work, when they, too,
must earn ti eir own living and
neIP earn that of others. From the
ranks of these children of toreigu
horn citizens will como the men
ot power who are' to rule this
couniry in the next treneration.
Senator Voorhees, ot Indiana,
has been generally interviewed by
a representative ot a leading New
York newspaper. The Senator ex
pressed the opinion that the P jtter
investigating committee are mak
ing asses of ihe'hiseves, and should
be regarded as disturbers of the
peace of the public. On the sub-
jfct of tutute presidential nbmina-
nons aec'ared Allen Ut - Ihur
man of Ohio, will be tho Demo
cratic candidate in 1880.

Ancient Order of United Workmen.
Mr. H. G. Oliver, ot Oakland,
California, Deputy of the above
named order, has been spending
a few days in the State. He is

ot establishing the order in our

secret work as will insure pro
tection of members wherever the
order may exist;, to hold - lectures
and discuss new indentions and
improvements in art, literature
and science. The secret work is
very Simple, and the order in
eludes many, on that account
who object to other societies. The

j Pet Indians.
Toj prevent harm to the reserva
tion pet Indiana nowadays, says
the Pendleton lndependeuty when
ever one of them wishes to come
to town a regular soldier is sen
with him as an escort. On Monday
last an Indian named Warm
Spring Jo. with his squaw was
escorted to town by one-ot the
boys in blue, who, when he look
the Indian out, also topis' a gallon
demijohn of : somethiifg . along.
That evening Jo. and avo other
pet bucks were drunk and raising
Cam at or near the agency, and
illustrating the civilization process
as applied by the "solger." We
understand the "solger returned
to, town late the same nisrht to
have his demijohn . replenished,
ana wae comfortably merry him
self. All this is perhaps none of
our business; and we give it as a
matter ot news, and to disabuse
Ine mind of Coruoyer as to where
his pets get their inspiration.
