CORNER SECOND AND WASHINGTON STREETS.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 16. 1S89.
The question of the national control
of railroad and telegraph systems ot
the United states is being discussed in
the papers. The monopolistic ten'
denciea of all corporation have aroused
the people to a realization of the fact
that danger is threatened to the free
institutions of this country by these
combinations of capital, and for
this reason very many believe that
the government should take the man-
ansement of them. J. he subject is a
broad one, and a great many argu
ments can be produced for and against
the proposition. The regulation of
rates would be a matter of legislation
if the government had control of cor
porations, and these could be reduced
to the lowest minimum. This would be
a great advantage to prodaceis and
shippers, and excessive charges would
not be any longer a cause of complaint
The railroad and telegraph have be
come "so necessary in the modern busi
ness world that they should be placed
cn an equal footing with the postoffice,
and the great facilities offered by
them should be within the reach of all
citizens. If it is deemed important that
communication between indidviduals
bhould be a branch of government,
and the price reduced to a mere pit
tance, in it not as great necessity that
the farmer and producer should enjoy
the advantage of the railroad aad
. steamship lines to take to market the
product of the soil, and that all citi
zens should have access to the tele
graph at the 'lowest possible tariff?
This century has been one of remark
able advancement, and in the progress
jf events matters which were once
,-nsidered luxuries are now almost
ience of the people j;.;?.:al routes are
established in every accessible portion
of the country, and tor two cents a
message will be taken thousands of

sity will exist for the telegraph and
the railroad, and these will be branches
of the public service.
There are persons who think the
governmental control of the railroad
and telegraph systems of the country
would partake too much of the parental
form and tend to abridge the liberty
of the c-iizen. If a greater evil can
exist in a free country than the op
pression of corporations we are at
loss to conceive what it can be. By
' means of excessive charge railroad
. have placed the heaviest burdens upon
the people, and by reason of their im
mense wealth have dictated legislation
and attempted to control the judiciary,
If everything should happen that the
opponents of the postal telegraph and
postal railroad have predicted it would
still be a relief from what is now suf
fered. The time may not have ar
rived when the convenience a of the
people demand that the railroads and
the telegraphs be governmental insti
tutions: but we shall anxiously watch
the progress of events and shall heart
ily welcome it when it comes, end be

the liberation of the people from the

However strong the pretense of
Democrats may be of loyalty to the
government they will attempt to cover
by every subterfuge possible the rec
ord of t he partv in the past. We are
acquainted with Democrats to-day,
who were camping in the swamps be
fore Richmond when the national con
vention of their party at Chicago re
solved that the "war was a failure,"
who will defend that action. This
may appear strange; but the whole
secret is that Democracy is a sort of
Free Masonry, and its fealty to party
according to the old mediaeval idea is
above all other considerations. With
few exceptions it is true, once a Dem
ocrat always a Democrat. The rank
and file acts and votes but does not
think or cogitate. The idea is all that
is necessary it expresses the rule of
the people, and that governs them,
It is far different with Republicans
each individual is a thinking or co$v
tatins machine. He thinks and acts
for himself, and admits no dictation
from any source. This is the reason
that there are so many mugwumps in
the organization. In one election the
members may be all in line in an
other all divided. President Cleve.

Democrats all the year round, and,
like the law of the Medes and Per
sians, never know a .change, ja
the contrary, the adherents o? the Re
publican party are attracted by every
new ism, and one day are Prohibition
ists, another Greenbackers, and so on.
In almost every election the Democ
racy draws its full strength. On tie
contrary, rarely in any election, do the
Republicans poll their full strength
And this is the reason that in "off
years" many states who are attached
to the party elect Democratic officials.
We hope this will always remain so,
as the freedom of the individual is
never so potentially expressed as at
The Democratic papers are not
through with their jubilations over
the victory in Ohio, and the editorial
columns of every Bourbon exchange
are still crowded with exultations over
the recent election. However, strange
it may appear to those unacquainted
with the facts, it is nevertheless true
that the Democracy has never won a
yictory for the past quarter of a cen
tury on purely partisan issues. The
only president the party has elect
ed since 1856, was in 1S84, and then
Mr. Cleveland was elevated to the ex
ecutive chair on civil service retain
by aid of mugwump Republicans
He proved untrue to his trust in everj
particular, and in the following cam
paign the party met a well-meriteo
defeat at the polls. The late victor
in Ohio was not a Democratic victory-
but a defeat of the several ''isms"
which clustered in and around the Re
publican party. Prohibition in Iowa
nearly caused the defeat of the Re
publicans, not because the people be
lieved in Democratic principles, but
for the reason that the best interest of
the commonwealth were not considered
in harmony with the inhibition of the
liquor traffic. In every instance, for
the past quarter of a century in which
the two parties untrammelled by
outside alliances have come before
the people for their suffrages, the De
niocracy has met a crushing defeat
The past record of the party does not
recommend it to the patriotism of the
American people, and its present stand
upon the living issues of the day does
not commend it to those who have the
best interests of the nation at heart. .
The silver convention in Denver
Colo., adjourned yesterday. The most
important resolution passed was for
the remonetization of silver, and claim
ing that the demonetization of this
metal was the cause of many of the
hardships now suffered by the labor
ing classes. The business of the world
is yet done on a gold basis, and silver
is only used as a medium of exchange.
If the United States . were to coin
millions of silver dollars it would not
'iave the effect to increase the wealth
f the country, not any more than the
ame amount of greenbacks would.
There is an item going "the rounds
of the press" disparagingly of the
Northwestern Fur Company and Hud
son Bay company, in contradiction to
an item which appeared in the columns
of the Times-Mountaineer, relative
to the death of. Mr. Alexander Mc-
Tavish, some weeks since. It is true
by a stroke of business policy these
companies outwitted the Yankees in
the northwest, but it is also a fact that
they were the pioneers in showing to
the civilized world the importance of
this portion of the United States, and
if they had not paved the way for the
Labor is the basis of all values, and j advance of Anglo Saxon civilization,
It is almost impossible to talk with
a Democrat but that h will consider
I the increase in the Deui icratic vote in
Ohio and Iowa due to the doctrine of
free trade. Partisans entirely overlook
the local causes, and say the result
was produced by the disaffection of the
people towards the present policy of
the Republican party. If such is the
fact, then what is the reason that
these states gave such large Republi
can nifCorities at the last presidential
electiou, when the question of protec
tion free trade was directly in
issue? The cold, ice-clad facts are,
that both Ohio and Iowa are btrongly
Republican when national issues are
before the people, but when nothing
but local questions are to be decided,

Yesterday was a red letter day for
Washington. A telegram was received
stating that the president had issued
his proclamation admitting the new
state into'the union, and the news was
received with general rejoicing. Flag3
were displayed, cannons boomed and
the best talent of the new common
wealth addressed their fellow citizens.
The induction into the union will al
ways be a grand event in the history
of the state; but with these new habil
iments which she has donned he has
also assumed new and weighty resr"n-
sioiuLiHs. one comes into the suitci-
hood of states with cheering prospects
for the future. A rich and highly
favored country, possessed of a large
and increasing population, with the
development of her resources she may
expect to take a commanding position
in the great northwest. Her first vote
cast was largely Republican, and it
may be expected that she will always
be found in the ranks of the party
whose policy is best adopted to her interests.

increase of silver will not increase

alue of gold. If the 'government

mineral a medium of exchange and
legislate itself rich in a few weeks.
Yesterday we only credited Uncle
Sam with giving birth to three bounc
ing boys, through a typographical
error. It should have been four, and
they are prancing lads, who have made
themselves heard. The two Ddkotas,
Montana and Washingtou are as
healthful progeny as was ever pro
duced on the continent.
Prince Murat, one of those Euro
pean fortune-hunters, about whom one
reads so many paragraphs in the pa
pers, wanted to marry a rich Ameri

him $10,000 a year for expenses, and
he became angry and broke the en
gagement The American peopl
should be proud of such a young lady,
as she somewhat redeems the charac

prince would not now be living
clover upon the large fortune accumu
lated in this republic, and brought
him by his wife.
The measure which we advocated
some time Bince of a convention of as
sessors is very important, and should
receive immediate attention. There
is a necessity of an equalized assess
ment, and this can only be acconi
plished by a meeting of the officials
whose business it is to attend to this
matter. We hope the assessors of
Oregon will rightly understand this
subject and will allow no delay in tak
ing action. If taxes were equal in all
counties there could be no complaint,
