CHINESE IN CANADA.
The San Francisco Chronicle says it
is announced in Ottawa that the Brit
ish government has called the atten
tion of the Canadian government to

Parliament in 18S5 is modified, and it
desires that such steps may be taken
at the next session of the Canadian
parliament as shall remove the cause
If Canada does not want the Chinese
the desire of the British government
will be more than apt to pass unheeded
and the request for supplemental leg
islation receive but scant courtesy.
The time has gone by for England to
attempt anything like dictation to hi r
great colonies on matters of internal
policy, and even the danger of a rup-
lure between Great Britain and China
would not be enough in all probabil
ity to induce the Dominion of Canada
to permit the unrestricted immigration
cf an , undesirable kind of people.
' Canada has even gone so far as to put
. a check upon the immigration of pau
pers from Great Britain itself, and
can scarcely be expected to open her
doors to coolies at the desire of the
Another English colony, one of the
Australian provinces, simply took the
matter into its own hands, refused to
allow Chinese laborers to land at all,
and compelled the vessel which had
brought them to take them back again.
and yet China did not sever her
friendly relations with Great Britain
in consequence. Should England at-
tempt to urge this matter too strongly
upon Canada, the friendly relations
between mother and daughter might
be strained and another link of the
now .slender chain of allegiance be
cracked, if not broken.
By the way, is not China going to
taka a pretty large contract if she un-
dertakes to compel every nation of the
civilized world to open their doors to
coolies? According to Bishop Fowler,
she is oing to whip the United States
in ten years and England appears to
be somewhat alarmed about war.
.Ferbaps. though, Ohma proposes to
take the nations one by one and re
peat on this side of the ocean the ex
ploits of the great Emperor Kow-tsung
in the seventh century. But as it is
wise not to cross a river until it is
reached, neither Great Britain nor the
United States need borrow any trouble
about a Chinese invasion at presen'.
In this era of rapid progress of
cities, the community which does not
exercise enterprise will fail behind
others, however many natural ad van
taees it may posse S3. The element of
grit insures success in cities as well as
individuals. This has been illustrated
in many instances in the northwest
during luo past few years, and it . is
constantly building cities and creating
trade Centers where natural ad van-
tages do not exist. The fact is so
apparent that enterprise will insure
the growth and prosperity of any
community that no other factor is
deemed necessary. Channels of trade,
natural resources and manufacturing
facilities may attract wealth and pop
illation; but the possession of these
alone will not insure future develop
ment In connection with these ele
ments of commercial greatness
there must be, to profit by them, a
spirit of enterprise exhibited by
the citizens. No great city can
importance without the
inhabitants have en-
ergy and activity, and liberal ideas in
regard to public improvements. Even
without natural advantages, public-
spirited men can accomplish wonders
in impelling the growth of business
industries. The instance of Spokane
t alls has often been cited, and is as
pertinent illustration as any on the
coast. If other cities had exhibited
the same enterprise they would have
equal population and business wealth.
But "grit" secured success by build-
ing railroads, welcoming capital
and attracting trade. The lesson to
. be learned is very plain, and an appli-
cation to towns in the northwest can
be made. The Dalles enjoys ad van-
tages which few towns in Eastern Ore-
gon possess; but to profit by these,
energy and enterprise must be exer-
cised. " One or more railroads should
diverge from this city to the interior,
and these, with our facili ies for chsrp ed large sums from the leading bus
transportation ly means of the Colum- iness houses and wealthy men, whose
bia river, would make this a great trade contributions, many of them will be

During the past season the erectiin of
the roller mill has been a movement
in the right direction, and another
season a woolen mill and other indus-
tries thould follow. Our c'ty has
every advantage for trade, and the
exercise of pluck will insure our
growth and prosperity.
The legend goes that once upon a
time a shipwrecked Irishman found
himself cast ashore upon a friendly
lBiand. Uncertain as to his where-1
abouts, he was naturally anxious to
know whether he was alone, or wheth-
er "the place was inhabited. He had

gone but a short distance inland when
he met a citizen of that country. His

the answer. "Well thin," responded
our Celtic friend with an emphatic I
nod, 'byG d I'm agin' it" Mr.
George William Curtis for several
years has been "agin' it." He pro
fe&8e8 to believe that the civil service
reform plank in the Republican plat-
form of 1888 meant that the incoming I
pies:dent must leave the offices, in I "
their occuoenc? and arrangement, iust I
as he found them after Mr. CIcve
land's" fouf years tenure of office, re-
yarding this gentleman's somewhat
peculiar work as the foundation of all
righteousness. This seems to bo
about what be assumes. Mr. Curtis,
since his defection from the RepuUi-
can party, and affiliation with on'-,
which but a short tim3 ago, he pro
nounced to be but ''an organized hun-
ger and thirst for office" has, it would
been an extremely unhappy
But that is no reason why he
should attempt to degrade the whole
theory of reform by a stump speech
abusive of President Harrison, like
his Philadelphia tffort. Mr. Curtis
might as well own that the civil re
form service is making progress; not
so much or so fast as might be hoped
perhaps, but still progress, no matter
I whether Mr. Curtis, or
all the mi
I wuinps are "agin it."
TnE BOAT KAIL WAY.
I Gov. Pennoycr has written a letter
I to the chief of public engineers, udve-
eating the building of a standard
I gauge railroad by the government in-
stead of a boat railroad between The
D.illes and Culilo, because he is in
formed bv an old stcaiuboatoian that
boats staunch enough to navigate the
river below The Dalles would be en
tirely too heavy and unwieldly to
navigate the river above CtliiO, ovine:
to the shoals, bars and rapids at var
ious points above that place, which
impediments absolutely require boats
uf such light draught and such
lisht weiaht as would render them
entirely unfit to withstand the strong
winds and swift waves of the middle
Columbia The statement of the
river captain, upon whom the governor
reies for authority, may ba true in
general: but the fact remains that
boats which have been used in navi
gating the Columbia above Celilo
called the upper river have been suc-
cessfully used in the trade between
tujg city and the Cascades and also on
the 0wer river. A number of years
ag0 the Shoshone and Nez Perce Chief
were taken to Portland and for a long
time used in navigating the Willamette
anj Columbia rivers. The Harvest
Queen and D. S. Baker, now making
trjp8 to the Cascades, are both upper
river boats, and for years were engaged
in the trade between Celilo and Lew-
;8ton. These illustrations demon-
8trates the fact that boats cf suffi-
c;ent jow draft to pass the shoals
and rapids ci the upper river
con be used in navigating all portions
of the river. For this reason we do
not endorse Gov. Pennoyer's idea of
constructing a broad gauge railroad to
overcome the obstructions above this
c;ty inatead of a boat railway as pro-
nnanj ti1H w,arH nf ,;,,.. Th
boat-railway would be the more eco
nomical plain, and we do not think the
objections to it can be substantiated.

gentlemen will return home by the
Shasta Route to Portland, and from
thence by the Short Line route to the

us, through our Board of Trade, avail
ourselves of the presence of these gen
tlemen in our midst, entertain them
and let them see for themselves the
ignificent ruin known as the Locks

actual inspection must bring to them
that there is but one wav to o-ivn na a.

THE WORLDS FAIR.
The great effort which the city of
Chicago is making to secure the
World's Fair of 1892 is at least strong
evidence that Chicagoaus believe in
themselves and their city. The city
has been flooded with subscription
books, no les3 than 19,000 of these
having been distributed among the
factories, shop?, stores, docks and
other places where workingmen con-
err gate. This is of course apart, from
and beside, the regularly to be expect -
represented by at least four figures.
The plan 13 somewhat unique. All
these leaser subscriptions were made at
one time at 12:30 on Wednesday,
O.t. 9th. This will be remembered
as the anniversary of the great h're
of eighteen years ago which proved
both bane and blessing to the rustling.
enterprising City of the Lakes. We
are somewhat curious to see the sequel
of this novel method of spcurinsr the
sinews of war for what will doubtless
prove the grandest exhibition of the

qnentiy nappens inai sucn sensational
rumors become widespread, id order to I
influence public opinion; but before
any credence is placed in these "dis- I
closures" it is well that a care-
ful scrutiny should bo had. The
whole subject should be care-1
tu"v analyzed, and the naked facts, J
possible, ascertained. It is not rea-
tonable that the very able counsel for
those who are suspected of the crime 'join hands with the Celt in favor of I
of the taurdcr" of Dr. Cronla, should
employ untried persons to acquit the
accused or "hang" the jury. Before
proceeding these lawyers should cover
every pitfall and be extra cautious
that they would not be caught in their
schemes by irresponsible and design
ing people. The matter of the dis-
closures will have to be viewed with a
great deal of discrimination, and the
greatest precaution and investigation
used before any conclusion is drawn.
A meeting of free-thiukers was
held in Portland last Saturday, at
which addresses were made by several
prominent men in the state. The bur
den of the speeches appeared to be a
severance of church and state, and the
greatest freedom in the expression of !
views on reliious subjects. As far as
could be gleaned from the Oregonian
the convention appeared to have at
tracted a large number Of people from
different portions of the state, and to
have been very harraoniods. All lib -
eral-minded men will endorse the sen- for public improvements and a sound
timents expressed of freedom from any financial and economic policy, and Iia
reli"iou3 restraint, and the broadest publicans are satisfied that very few
reaini tor thought on an subjects.
But the traditions of our people havu
become for centuries so interwoven
with religious ui;lief3 that it is
not only a difficult but a dan
gerous expedient to ruzne any
marked innovation. .there is no
denying the fact that for the pur
poses of government some belief in a
supreme being greatly aids officials
in the enforcement of restrictive laws.
Sever the faculties of the mind
from a reverence for deity, and it
would be a broad step towards the
wildest anarchy. In the history of
the world, from the earliest ages of
Greece to the present time, religion
has been the handmaid of civil govern
ment, and tho reverence for
the one implies the life and
activity of the other. We have
cosmopolitan community, com
posed of different races, and it will be
extremely hazardous to cut these peo
ple loose from all restraining influences,
and let them follow the bent of their
own feelings. Tt will be far better for
them to hug a delusion to their bosoms,
if by so doing they are tracta
ble and law-abiding, than by releasing
them from the thralldom of supersti
tion to make them disturbers of the
peace of the commonwealth and breed
ers of mischief in society.
The report has been published gen
erally through the press of the state
that Mr. Harvey Scott, editor of the
Oregonian, has resigned, and that the
position has been filled by a gentleman
who was formerly of the staff of the
St. Paul Pioneer Press. From the
fact of this resignation queries have
been made regarding the future field
of work for Mr. Scott, and some have
intimated that he would be a candi
date before the next legislature for U.
S. senator. This is a matter that does
not concern the papers of Oregon, and
Mr. Scott, as an American citizen, has
a right to devote1 his energies in any
field of activity he desires. If he
should aim at a seat in the upper
house of the national legislature we
can assure our readers that no abler
man could be given the position. His
line of work for many years has been
the best disci phnearian of the 'brain
on all subjects, and if honored by an
election to the position ho would be
aided by a ripe judgment, and a care
ful discrimination in matters for the
benefit of his constituents. This has
been his life work,and,unlike the shys
ter lawyer, he would labor for the ben
efit of the community and not for his
own aggrandisement. This is the vo
cation of the editor in contradistin-
guisbment from that of the attorney.
The one either defends or prosecutes,
according to the size of the fee; the
other is the protector of the weak or
innocent against the enemies of
human peace and happiness.
In real life there is too much poefry
and sentiment, and not enough love
and honesty, although these are gen
erally combined. The poetry of life
consists in cjothing in glowing colors
tho common every day duties which
we owe to each other as members of
the cemmunity, and in consequence
almost a total ignoring of the sterner
realities, we must work, pay our
debts and treat cur neighbors fairly if
we desire to maintain our standing in
society, and leave the ideas of romance,
fancy and poetrv alone. The world is
a hard one.' It will not tread softly
over tendep spots, but will go rough
over the most delicate grounds, and we
must be prepared. The realm of
sentiment may be well enough for
those who have a large bank account
and unlimited credit; but with any
one who has to provide food and
clothes tor wtie and children something
is 01 mucd greater importance than

nisnea, anci butchers, grocers' and

ana cents, and not by sweet songs or

knocks ihe poetry out of life, and rel-
egates it to the halcyon days of youth

A free-trade organ grows very en
thusiastic in favor of its pet doctrine
by the following peculiar jugglery of
figures: "The United States, under the
operations of high-tariff laws from
1870 to 1880, increased in wealth from
905 per capita to 940, or at a rate
of $3.50 annuallly. The United
States from 1850 to 1860 bad free
trade, and her wealth increased dur
ing that time from 3S0 per capita to
615, or at the rate cf $23.50 yearly."
These figures will deceive no thought
ful person, for during the free-trade
decade the discovery of gold in Cali
fornia saved the country from bank
ruptcy, and the disastrous results of
the civil war were felt between 1S70
and 1880. And furthermore the in
crease of population during the ten
years of protection was greater than
from 1850 to 1860, and as a matter of
course this diminished the increase of
wealth per capita.
At this particular period of indus
trial development in Oregon the im
provement of the navigation of the
Columbia river is of the greatest im
portance, and for this reason the
Waterway convention, a3 a represent-
atiye body, should voice the wishes of
every community dependent upon the
river as a means of transportation.
It should be a matter cf great concern
to all interested that these conventions
should express the desires of the
northwest regarding government aid
in public works. We have no fault
to - find with our senators and repre
sentatives in congress. They have
worked arduously for appropriations
for Oregon in the river and harbor
bill, and have been successful in many
instances in increasing the amounts
for the locks at the Cascades and for
the mouth of the river; but when they
have the support of conventions, em
bodying the consolidated wishes of
the entire community, their work is
Forty-six failures of woollen nianu
facturing concerns, with liabilities to
the amount of $6,920,000, in the first
eight months of this year, demonstrate
the failure of enormous duties on
woollens to secure the home market
for our woollen manufacturers. The
reason of such a failure is obviously
the taxation of the raw material
without which, free of duty, we can
not mate ratines to compete in our
own markets with foreign makes.
There is considerable assumption in
the proposition that these failures are
caused by "taxation of the raw mate'
rial. The better reason appears to
be the efforts of the last administra
tion to break down the wool industry,
and the effect of such a ruinous policy
now being realized in our manufac
tures being crippled. A fair test of
this matter would be to wait till the
close of Mr. Harrison's administration
and then, after Republican legislation
in congress, to see w hether all branch
es of industries are not on a better
The Democrats are terribly exer
cised because a few fourth class post
masters have been removed in differ

claiming loudly in favor of an unpar-

that it originated the stoils system
and that the corrupt Tammany ring
has been the embodiment of every
thing that is detestable in politics from
its inception to the present time.

In Germany the authorities have a
very effectual method of stopping
strikes, and that is by putting the sol
diers at work where laboiers are
needed. Recently at Flensburg, when
the dock laborers refused to load and

lormea toe worff, and the same was

Berlin. This plan can only be adopted
by tyrannical governments, and the
freedom of the people receives a death
blow when the army can be brought
into requisition to enforce the demands
of capital upon dependent labor.
A letter has been receiyed in this

attention should be paid to the matter.
We would suggest to our board of

The Dalies needs every factor of de

produce an article of ready sale. We

The negro porter, Gibbs, who shot
the McDevitts last Friday evening, is
still at large, and from appearances
the Portland authorities have made
no strennous efforts for his capture.
It was a most cowardly crime, and
the colored villain should ne brought
to justice. In this era of railroads
and telegraphs it sems impossible that
Gibbs should elude the vigilance of
the officials, if they are competent to
fill the positions they occupy. We
hope the press of Portland will not
hold their peace until the police force
of that city are aroused to their ut

Senator Evarts is in Vienna, and
has been giving our German neighbors
some idea of the negro question in this

not conuiingle amicably, and

in the conflict between these races one

likely that one w ill be the negro.
According to dispatches from Eng
land the confederate bondholders of
that country have hopes that their

dently a delusion and a snare, as an
amendment to the constitution pro
vides that neither the United States
nor any state shall assume or pay any
debt or obligation incurred in aid of
insurrection, and to use a homely
phrase, these British bondholders who
had such an abiding faith in the per
manency of the late confederacy, will
be forced to whistle for their .pay.
We are intormed on reliable au
thority that Mr. Harvey Scott has
not resigned from . the control of the
editorial columns of the Oregonian;
but an additional writer has been
added to the editorial staff of that
paper. From the same source we
learn that Mr. Scott will not be a can
didate for senatorial honors, and un
der no circumstance would he accept
the position. The ability of Mr.
Scott cannot be doubted, but editors
make poor politicians. '
The speech of Chief Arthur before
the annual convention of Locomotive
Engineers in session in Denver, gives
the true key-note to all classes of labor

vise a strike only as a last resort.
The organization of labor is beneficial
in several ways, and when such con
servative men as Mr. P. M. Arthur
takes the lead people may be satisfied
that there will be no radical action.
The communication from Mr. Hugh

of importance we should be pleased to
