iiicuiaei es luere is uangui ot tne
disease breaking out in Oicon. It is
a grand mistake for every on who im
agines Li nisei f qualified to fill an office
to be spoakirg political preferment
There arc not otnees enough to go round
and if there were, tbeie would not bi
, enough left in tho private walks of life
to support them. We have altogether
to man? sinecure position and tw
much red tape in oSeiai circles. The
emolument?', perquisites and stealings
in ollicial position are altogether to
larx the s;ileiif.s v.re too hi'jra for the
amount cf work required. Abolish
Binicni e and needless ofllces reduce the
salaries of the public fsevie to an o
quaHty with the wages paid by pri
vate'entarpme for like amount of ser
vices and it will work a radical cure to
tho mania for office which manifests it
helf in both the political parties rtiiough
out the United States and will La more
effectual in purifying the j)iiblic ser
vice than ail the civil service bill 4.
Congress can pass from now until!
dooiiiS-day. There is net or should
not be any thing so intricate in govern
mental offices but what all intelligent
people can understand and administer
them. Therein no reason why one
citizen should not as well fill a public
place as another and wo find so fault
with any person who is qualified and
can get there in filling a public oiliee
providing he does so honestly and eco
nomically. One great argument bj
some who are anxious to pull others
down in order to make place for them
selves that an aspirant should wait u.i
til the people call them. At the htm
time scheemers will have their stritOi-s
out wot king popularity far them when
the petition, letters i f recommendation
etc. have been sent to the appoint,
ing power and the commission arrives
they are perfectly surprised to think
such a position but under the circum
stances they look upon it as a duty to
accept and are slra'gktway installed in
the office. None but they and th it
hired agents have the least idea the a
mount of money it cost them to secure
the place. Often at a price ruenous
to their private fortunes do they secure
the coveted place.- And not unfte
quen uy to recuperate then- tailing for
tunes do they resort to dishonest practi
ces that leaves them in ruin and the
public service in disgrace. This can
only be remedied by placeing the publi
services oa a par with private enter
A CHANGE NEEDED.
A change js needed in the proceed
ings before the Circuit Court Especi
ally is this so ui reference to the em
paneJlmg ot the Urand Jury. And the
setting of causes for trial. Under our
present law litegants aie required to
be ready with their witnesses from the
first day of court until they can get a
hearing. Even should their cause be
crowded to the last day or go over for
tae term for want of time. This not
unfrequenily entails needless and nu
inerous expenccs upon litigants and a-
mounts to an absolute denial of justice,
It is ireenvunient for the attorney and
also for the court and not unfrequenj-
ly results in confusion and a wast of
time. If a law dav could be arranged
in advance cf the term to settle issues
at which time the Grand Jury could
be summoned and do their work causes
could be set down for trial at a dav
certain witnesses could be summoned
for the dtv of trial and would not be
compelled to wait for a week at a time
at great inconvenienco to themaelvt s
ani rumors cost to the litigauts. The
counties would save thousands of dol
lars each year by such an arrangement
the time for the meetings of the court
in the vanus counties can be so ar
ranged if some of our wise legislators
gire th3ir attention to the subject and
introduce the proper bill. Other states
have this arrangement it is found to
work well. If tho people stir li t their
representatives to a reuse of duty on
this subject we can have the change iu

A Trip to the East.
A trip acrosslthe plains lacks the
novelty and excitement it possessed in
the day cf the pioneers, vet it is full
of interest, especially to an old Ore-
cOniau who has not been eart of thy

one years, and a short iketch of it may
eutertam your readers. We left tha
city of Portland on th 20th ot May
last, by the Northern Pacific railway
for St. Paul. This rout has been so
often described that if is familiar to
neatly every one on this Coast but it
must be passed over to be appreciated.
The canyons of the Columbia river, the
plains of eastern Washington, the cros
sing of the Rock Mountains, ttie htoad
prairies of Montana and Dakota, the
"Bad Lands" and the farms of Minneso
ta present a variety of grand and beauti
ful scenery which the eye never wearies
in gazing on. We see also the build
ing of new empires in a country that
but a few years hince was an almcst
unknown wilderness. The home wf
the buffalo is already coveted with
cattle ranches and in place of the sav
age Indian the hardy settler is plowing
up the sod for tho reception of gram,
wiaie trains of cars aie continuously
pouring their loads of emmigrants up
ou the vacant lauds on botn sides of
mountains. The climate in Montana
and Dakota is very severe, the mercury
in thy thermometer .having frozen last
winter. Tne s ttier huwtver say that
it is a dry cold tnt one soon gets used
to and are as proud of thefr country us
ihose in mote tutored climes. Ou time

Tne latter are mostly bunt in the
Queen Anuo style and in the matter ot

walls and roofs are painted in squares
with all the different tints which colors
are capable cf producing. We noticed
one aesthetic gentleman had tilled his
neighbors with envy by painting the
walls of his costly residence s bright
red and the roof sky-blue. A night
trip through the state of Wisconsin
brought us to tha far-famed city of
Chicago on Sunday morning. As our
train did not leave until night we took
a cab at a dollar an hour ami had a
hasty view of the principal objects of
interest. The citizens of Chicago have
by their energy and liberality fairly
earned the reputation the City bears m
the commercial world. It is favorablt
located, well laid out, well built, and
is one of the most beautiful cities in
the Union. Another night ride brought
us through Indiana and we arrived at
the Queen City of the West, the home
of our early years. We stopped here.
but one day to greet a brother after an
absence of thirty-two years, and' hur
ried on to Washington City by the
Baltimore and Ohio railway. As one
joes east the speed of th trains in
creases and in crossing the Alleghanies
by this route, it is so great tlmt you
keep your seat with difficulty. A few
d .ys stay in Washington enabled us to
appreciate the immense improvements
at have been made since our last
visit. Washington City is to-day th
landsomest city in the United States.
Its tine streets bordered by shade trees,
its handsome patks with their statues
and its magnificent public Uuilditns
make it worthy to be tha capital ot
this Grat Republic. Upon my artival
the Supreme Court had adjourned, but
Congress was still in session. My first
visit to the gallery of the Senate was
made while the Mexican pension bill
was pending.- It had passed the House
by such an overwhelming majority that
Republicans dare not vote direct! v
against it, but passed it loaded with
amendments to which they knew the
House would never agree. It is
one of the inscrutable ways of politics
that a bill of so much merit -huuld be
made a political question, but audi tt
was. We had the pieaaUie of mejttii"

our arrival entered upon the duties
that calhil us there.
The Board of Visitors was composed
as follows; appointed by the President
of the United States: Gen. F. M. Pal
fry, Mrtssicffusetts; L. P. Mosher, Ore
gon; Col. Henry Haymond, West Vir
ginia; George E. W-mng, Jr., Rhode
Island; Geo. W. IJouk, Ohio; Gn.
Daniel Ruggles, Virginia; and B. Gratz
Brown, Missouri. Appointed by the
President of tha Senate: Hon. Omar
D. Conger, Michigan and Hon. Richatd
Coke, Texas. Appointed bv the Speak
er of the House of Representatives:
Hon. W. S. Rosecrans, California;
Hon. Lewis Boach, New York and
Hon. Charles R. Skinner, N. Y. The
Board organized by the election of Gen.
Rosecrans president and Geo. E. Man
ning, Jr., secretary. Nearly three
weeks were occupied in making a thor
ough examination into the actual con
dition of the Academy and the result
embodied in a report to the Secretary
of War which ha3 bee t lately pub
lished. The Board found the general
conditiou of the Academy and its be
longings highly satisfactory and its
administration all that could be desired.
The examinations both in the Academy
and iu the field were especially inter
esting. In the Academy, by the dem
onstrations of abstruse scientific prob
lenis and "their intelligent answers in
other branches, the cadets exhibited a
thorough knowledge of the studies
through which they had passed, while
in the infantry, cavalry and light artil
lery drill, practice with seige guns and
mortars, pontoon and spai bridge build
ing and in every branch of the duty of
a soldier they acquitted themselves
with the skitliof veterans and the in
telligence of educated men. Their skid
in the riding school would astoni.sh
even a Pacitic Coast man. Mounting
and dismounting a bare-backed horse
at full gallop, taking tLe saber and re
volver from the ground while in motion
were some of vhe feats performed by
the whole class with apparent ease.
The moral education of the cadets is
not neglected taid the snides: sense of
honor and ndelity to trusts are always
inculcated. They are not allowed the
use of liquor or tobacco and the young
men graduate healthy and vigorous
mentally, morally and physically. The
graduating exercises were conducted on
a platform in front of the Academy
upon which weie seated President Ar
thur, the Secretary of War, Lincoln,
the General of the Army, Sheridan, the
Board of Visitors, General Crook and
tne graduating class. The address ef
tho Board was delivered by Hon. G.
W. Honk, Gen. Crook the address to
the graduates, and the President of the
United States delivered the diplomas
with a shert speech containing much
good advice, !
The Board Were not SO nmcli orrurrt.A
with their official duties as to be unable
to accept the many courtesies extended
to them by the officers on duty at the
Academy, one of the most pleasant of
which was the dinner of the Graduates
Association. It is the custom of the
graduates, or as many as can conven
iently do so, to meet at the annual ex
aminations to renew their school-boy
days and their acquaintance with
each other. On this occasion Gen.
Hancock was present and many
gray haired veterans, some of whom
had served from the Seminal war to
the "lati unpleasmtness." It was bete
we met Prof. II. L. Kendt iek fW th
first time since serving with hint in
Puebla, Mexico, in 1S47.
The business at xVest Point beim
completed we took the steamer Mary
Powell for New iTork city. The beau
tiful panorama of the classic Hudson
was never exhibited at a better advant
age than on this glorious June day and
was of itself a sight woith crossing th
continent to see Several days were
spent in the wilderness of the Cittv
but the weather was getting uncom.
fortably hot and as we could not afi'oid
the luxm.ry of a Season at Long Branch
we turued westward and iu a short
time were again in Cincinnati. Tnis
city has outgrown th most sanguine
expectations of her pioneei citizens.

were crowded pear the river by which
the trade was principally carried on,

La tuu vieiuity iu the socie.y oi ic- .
latives and schcolmaUs, who had lost
none of their ancient hospitality, we
passed a delightful .summer. Of course
we attended the great Democratic Con
vention' at Chicago and tok a lively
interest in the October election in Ohio.
We attended the great mass i.eeting
at Music Hall which was addressed by
Vice President Hendricks, Bayard,
Pendleton and Gen. Rosecrahs, heard
Carl Shurtz, saw the magnetic J. G.
Blaine and witnessed the bull doing
bv negro deputy U. S. marshals for
which Lot W-ight has lately been im
peached in the Hous;e of Representa
tive We also attended the Exposi
tion and tht Kentucky races.
On the 19th of October wc left for
St. Louis by he Ohio and Mississippi
road and made the riith e distance fn
ten liourti. There h-id been an excess
ive drought in southern Indiana and
Illinois during the summer and along
the entire route the streams were dry,
the ground parched and the crops al
most an entire failure, t'roui St. Louis
we took th Missouri PacilTc to Kan
sas City. Western Misouri contains
the finest body of agricultural laud we
saw it- all our travels. Io is sufficiently
undula'ing for beauty and health and
ka rich sob seems inexhaustable. Maiiv
of the c irly settlers of Oregon came
from this section of the country, but
why they left such a favored land has
been a wonder to 9 ever since we saw
it. A stop of ten hours enabled us to
prospect Kansas City. Jt is situated
upon a bluff above the railroad depot
and consists tf a thousand hills, more
or less, with streets running in every
direction but is a business place and is
rapidly increasing in populatien.
From Kansas City we took the Atch
ison Topeka and Sante Ee route to
Deming on the southern Pacific. Tho
road through the fertile prairies of
Kansas is extremely monotonous.
There is not a trea nor an elevation
larger than a gopher Lill on the whole
route so that it is not surprising that
the first visw of the blue summits of
the Rocky mountains caused thrill of
please re that only a person who has
lived for yeais among natures prime
val monuments can fully appreciate.
Upon approaching the mountains the
toad defl-cts to the left along their
base through SautsFe and Albuquerque
in fact follows what is called the
old Santo Fo trail from Sc Louis to
San Diego on the Pacific. luhs we
passed over su bstanti illy thesame route
taken by Gen. Jos. Lane and his small
escort in the winter of 1848 when
coineing aa the first governor to organize
the territory of Oregon. Tin road from
