Our Ilukor City friend., uro irylnjr

(Jooso otvk, noiir lloyinii, Thoy
think tlioy have found u hottor route,
by brunchtntf off soitiovvhcro, 'mid
tapiiinjf Knj,'ln Valley, tlionoo up Stim
juit creek, to intersect thu Stulo road,
This is all riht on tlioiinrt of tlio pco
))lu of linker, It i undoubtedly to
their interest to j:et uk amn 11 route
us posslblo, hut wo infer from 11 lottm
written hy a minor at- CorutieopiA to
tho Satc Urush that tlio foolish idea
Is onti'i tiiiued bv some that tlio Stale
rond can ho changed front tho (Jrillith
"Do these meddlers know that tho
grade on (rilllth'uMirvoy is 11 uniform
one of most h loss-than 10 foot to 100
and in 110 placo ovor 1-' feet. Tlioy
certainly cannot Miy that mtioh for
their proposed road, Wo at L'ornu-
copia uro situated at an elevation of
MOO feetahovo I'ino Valloy, and to
dav far prelor our snow to tho mud
of 11110 and Kitfflo valleys, and would
consider it 110 small ndviinlii'jn 10 have
lust ku'Ii deeo snow as wo had this
winter between lioro and I loem,
knowing hy praolieal exporioneo that
wo could haul more and easier over
this mow road than ovor tho fathom
less muddy roads of thoco valleys.
Wo say, therefore, let us have the
hiiow in preference to wagons for four
mouths at least,, and wo will save
thereby a yrcat deal, as it will bo un
necessary to reload from wagon' to
bloijih or I'co rerun, as wo pans from
mountain to valloy , And the advan
tage of h saving in distance would be
lost, and little or nothing gained bv
changing to these valleys, but I have
often heard that time is not of much
value to our old Orcgonlnii friends,
but wo hpg them to mind that such is
not thocasn with us miners, as that is
0110 of tho most important considera
tions. Why such insinuations for any
proposed ehaniro should he rebuffed
Is: Thn donation by tho Stato war
made for tho oxpr's purpose of help
ing to develop our mi hps in this dis
trict. Now it may bo unknown or
Ignored by those hay diggers that this
new road as surveyed by (irilllths will
travero and approach in many places,
mining localities which may rival, if
not siirpnss any Identity in thn Stato."
Tho wi lier of tho above is correct in
ids conclu.-ions that snow is prefera
ble to mud, mid (hat tho road to he
built by the Slate on the (irilllths sni
vey will ho the only practicable route
to the mines in the winter. We can
further Inform him, and others, who
are ignorant of the fact, that this rind
Mill ho build in duo course of time,
and that it cannot bo built on any oth
er survey without forfeiting thoappro
piialion made by tin State. What
tho people of linker City do in regard
to building roads will not concern
him in the least, If they ran succeed
in making a better road to tho mines,
than the one made by tho State, (and
avo adniiro their pluck in trying) they
will bo beuelllted, and doorvo to he,
but their efforts to overreach Union
ut! a supptv point for the mines, will
be ftirtile, as time will demonstrate.
Tho mutual advantages tiro all with
us, and us an old granger remarked,
'Youciu'l buck agin nature with
out gitlin hut t . '
Tin: nr. are four hundred idle China
men in Seattle, and tho ( 'hroniclo call
upon the citizens to raise a .subscrip
tion and pay their passage to other
places. Tho same journal closes nn
article 011 the Munition there as fol
lows: "It grieves us to see armed
men marching the streets; it grieves
ns to hear angry words and see sullen
looks upon the luces of our clliy.cn.
In tlii name ot all tint is duar to
