WHAT WILL JiK DDK El The last giand jury made a most ex cellent report of the condition of coun ty nffairs. and showed zcul and con Mn'ciitioiisucss in the discharge of their duties very commendable. On ac count of the length of the report wc could not publish il at tint time, which we regretted exceedingly, as it. contained much information mid many suggestions of interest to; the people at large. That a very peculiar state of affairs has existed heretofore is shown by the following extract taken j from it : I ''It appears from the licst Information I wc can get on the Mibjeet that there Ins ! dcen various sunn i money collected ny former sherilft and their deputies and by ".I.". " . ... ' . V.. .- .i . Vl " ... 'r...

A'e do not know (what action 'will be taken by the county court in this matter, but if as the grand jury seems lo think, there has fcbeen ''criminal negligence" on the part of any of our cx-ollicials or tlieir deputies, action cannot ho commenced too soon. A public servant whose nature it is to be "slippery" i about as contemptible 1 a being as (here is on the face of the earth, and the sooner his rascality is , exposed the better. If he is honest, 1 but dull enough to einphiy and be : hoodwinked by thieving deputies, he Hhonld pay for his lolly,. and not allow the peoplo to suffer through his inca pacity. The same g'anil jury, we believe, will serve at, the duly term ami it is to he hoped they will contin ue tncir endeavors to lntvo this uiat'er investigated. J HOPKFUL VU'.W. The Salem Slutcmtm consoles itself with the reduction that the inter-slate commerce law, in raising the through freights both ways, will furnish a greater incentive to home mnuufactiirc in the west. It thinks '-that U will bo found cheaper to manufaetiiro the raw materials at home than to ship them to the eastern states, there to be worked up and returned to us, paying very high freight rates both ways. If, ns it is hero predicted, the continued operation of the law has this effect , it will be a good thing tor the west, and h"b will graduallyl grow to be more independent of other sections in tho matter of tho necessaries of life, com iortand employment," On this hy pothesis wo presume it would bo bet ter not to have any railroad at all. Wo doubt very much whether the ad vance in freight rates will cause any such result as predicted. .Should it do no the law will prove boiiellclal, mid in a way not contemplated when It was enacted. We think it would be better, us the railroads exist, to com pel thoni to adjust their rates accor ding to common sense and .reason, and take our chances of having manu factures, etc. in the future. TlfK 1NTKK-STATK LAW Recent disjmtehes from Wasldiigtoii ftnte thtit the nrcsideut litis npiioiutcd tho following as inter-state eoiiiiniss ioners: Thomas M. Cooley, ot Mich 5Hn, for tho term of six years, Wm. It. Morrison, of Illinois, for (he term of tlvo year's; Augustus Sehoonuuiker, of New York, for tho term of four years; Aldaco K, Walker, of Vermont, lor the term of three years; AValter S. lU'tiKI?, f Alahama, for the term of two years, Tho record" of eacli 0110 ofjthcsu gentlemen is also given at some length. This latter information, however, is of little importance, ns tho only record of these men tho peo plo care anything nnout, is the one they will soon make as commission ers. Unless they are utterly incor ruptible thoy will scueuinh to the wily blandishments of the railroad mag nates, and this ,lhiw" with its mul tiplicily of words and meaningless sentences will ho 41 construed" accor dingly. Wo nil know by everyday uvontH that when tho railroad capital ists Imvo need of one ot tho people's champions, they generally trap lilm, yank out his eyc-tcctli with a pair of golden forceps, and he is "tlteirn." It is to bo hoped, however, that tho gentlemen' comprising this commiss ion will prove exceptions to t lie rule, mill bo nblc lofjnnd Foinct Iiinjr in 'tlic law that will he n bcncllt lo the peo ple, and some port of n safeguard against those powerful railroad cor- ; mpoI thf!m tolnliy2,IIH,nMiro foi.cxt0l.. tion anil robbery. We tiro inclined (to think that tho law will be n failure was intended to lie a failiiri! from its inception. If some law could be enaclnd, in plain linglish, dcllniug the rales that all railroads should be allowed to charge on long and short hauls , and making it the duty of the county ofllcinls of eachjcoiintyjthc roads puss through toJco that the law is strictly enforced, some good might come out of it. Ah it is, there seems to he nothing in it hut, sound and fury, signifying' noth ing. A UK A UTIKUL CJTV rhcrc is not within the limits of IJastern Oregon n more beautiful and attractive citv than Union, strangers coming among us never tire of laud ing our beautiful surroundings, our many elegant and costly residences, our natural resources, and the advan tages that are ours by reason of loca tion relative to the surrounding coun try, and above all, the happy, pros perous, contented condition of our people. Whatever I nion is to-day it has been made bv the demands of the. ,:,,. i, ila ,.iili..ninpfil boom' which so often is the cuie of many towns, but has grown on its o wu ineritsaloue. It will never ret rograde, and its iinproveinetsaie per manent and lasting. Hut, while this ie the case, wis are loth to admit that many of our citiy,ens;seein to be con tented with 'well enough" and do not posses that untiring energy re (ptired in the upbuilding of prosper ous cities, and to keep pace with the restless and pushing spirit ot tin: times. In old settled countries a town might remain the same for generations, hut in a country like this, no place can bo at it standstill. It must advance or decline. Or if il does not actually retrograde, in contrast with neighbor ing towns that have kept up in the race, it will appear to have done so. All that is needed to make Union, in the future, as it has been in Ihe past, one of the foremost towns in this section of the .Stale, is a liberal, pushing and aggressive policy 011 the part of her citizens. All the; natural advantages essential to this end are around us in abundance. Will our citi.eus take advantage of them? PAT EXT YOUJl AilXKH. An exchange says truly that min ing ground which is worth holding is worth patenting. . A possess ory title is good only so long as there is actual and continuous po.-sess-iou and tho reejuirmonls of the United States and district laws tiro .strictly complied with. The hitter are often iiuihigoiiA, vague and conflicting.. It is true they must boin accordance with the national law, or they arn void but it is never safe to trust to compliance with them to the title of the ground. A patent is the only sure ami enduring title. Under it tho owner it the own er is assured of his properly for all time. Xo change in Tinted Stntes laws can deprive him of it, forthegov erninent having conveyed to the pur chaser its title, has no more control over thu mine lb in a private individ ual would have over any piece ol prop, trty after having deeded it to another person for a certain sum or money. It is as far beyond the roach tit Con gress as a building lot in New York City, or a farm in the slate of Massa chusetts, (('round hold under the pos sosory title is under the direct control of tho government , and Congress can dispose of it in any manner it choose; therefore a claimant is always at the mercy of that body and subject to its caprices, until he purchases tho right from actual owner, who is no less per son than L'nele Sam himself. A pat ent is not only tho cheapest, for it can bo obtained at less cost than tho ex pense of holding the ground under the possessory method. Uvory minor claiming ground which lie purposes to work or sell, should by all means se cure his titlo from the general govern ment. milll IMMIIIUIW Euoiiu CUy Notes. Andy Titus is lioro again.
