Ihikor City hn orr:tui.cl a hoard
of tritdu. Thi is a move in the riht
direction mid ihe first, most impor
tant step toward prosperity and the
upbuilding of the place. We trust the
hiisine-s men of this phice will rouse
themselves to the need of the times,
and do likewise
The prospects' for an ahundant yield
of wheat and other cereals are very
flattering in this section of the Slate,
and farmers arc consequently in frond
.spirits. The ininiiifr prospects of Un
ion county are also extremely frond.
No doubt there will hi; a hir-re influx
of immigrant this year, who will in
vest, in laiuii iiud aid matciially in
building up the country. Taken al
together the indications are that L'n
ion and adjoining countic,s will wit
ness a prosperous year.
The glorious I'oiirth of'.Iulv will
soon be here. We notice that the
prcliiniiuuy notes for a celebration on
that day are being sounded by our
exchanges in neighboring towns, and
no doubt some of them will get up a
full blast presently. Wu shall not
pipe any this year on this subject.
The last celebration held in the valley
was at this place and largely attended
by the denizens of nearly every sec
tion of the county. It is our place
now to reciprocate. We are ready to
get full of enthusiasm, yell, and show
our patroli'-ni in divers ways, if the
opportunity is ofrered.
The following noma San Francisco
paper look as if the people of California
hud a notion of getting around tin;
Inter-State Commerce law by inking a
short cut through the air. Articles of
incorporation of the California Aerial
Steam Navigation Company have been
filed. The corporation is organized
f.ir the purpose 'of hiiihlingiiiid con
structiug air ships and equipping them
with machinery; machines ami nppli
aues for exhibition and navigating the
nir: for making ascensions; tor trans
porting passengers, good, wares,
merchandise mi1 other properly
through theairhy mcniisof thcsnint!. ' '
The.O. It. N. Co. ami the Union
Pacific have fixed a rate of W cent"
per hundred on lumber from Portland
to Denver, ami from Portland to Oma
ha, Kiiiisiih City, Council (Huffs, SI.
Joseph ami other Missouri lfivor
points. This iH a reduction of nine
cents a liundred to Denver, and live
items to the Missouri river, from last
year's rates. The rale from Chicago
to Dcnvir is the same as from Port
laud, and this will place the lumber
men on an equal footing wilh the great
lumber market of the win hi. The new
rates will be pcruiiimcut , at least this
.season, nudiill the saw mill" in Oregon
will no doubt llnd u ready inii'kol lor
their entire output .
lteceutly .1. G. Hlaiii took cold anil
a slight chill or two ran down his spi
nal column. There was nothing very
peculiar in that, hut a very curious
phenomena in connection (herewith
is brought to our notice while readii g
our exchanges. There can ho no
doubt that when one of the aforesaid
chills caper down his spine, it affects
ihfi vertebra of a large number ot the
populace in a similar hut more aggra
vated manner. Wo presume this is
due to the remarkable 'magnetism"
ot the plumed knight. Now, Cleve
land never made anybody fed like
that, unless it was when he vetoed
some rascally pension hill, or excom
municated some post-master, mid
then the sensation seemed to be lack
ing in quality or something, llo's no
good, and hasn't the proper magne
tism, MagnetUm-is what we want.
A number of our exchanges seem
to feel grieved at the loss of their
'free pahs' ' ovur tlie railroad. The
newspaper man "who says he had a
'free pass' acknowledges the utter
worthlessiiess of his paper as mi ad
vertising medium. It would he sup
posed that he paid for all ho got.
Wo advertised for the railroad compa
ny hist year to the amount of $00. and
charged them up on the ledger with
the same During that lime we llnd
them credited with one ride $2.W,
Thus it will he seen that the got ad
vertising to the amoiiiit of ?V. for
nothing. To be sure we could have
taken up that amount and much more
in riding if wo had desired to do so.
.Not one newspaper man in twenty
litis occasion to ilde morn than his ad
vertising amounts to providing he
attends to hi business, ami his minor
is worth a continental -and this being
the case wo can't see where thu fro!
pass come in.
All Exploded Myth.
The following poem is published by
request. Jt was written by .Mr. 0. 1.
Milfoil, a iironiiuent attorney of l'ort-
j land. While it is not exactly in our
j line as a general newspaper, it contains
truths (hat should be heralded to every
land ulidcr the sun. We give it cur
rency with pleastiic:
"Tin re is no Hell!" (Jrcat wonder!
That long hath furnished Christian
"There is no Hell!" exclaims .Ward
The great est living Christian preacher.
The thought sweet consolation brings
i "There is no Hell!" it rings, it rings
j Through -all the land. Now -pulpit
Is furnished without hell for dressing.
Ah happv man! how sweet to tell
! "i'herelsno Hell!" no Hell! no Hell!
In boyhood's days I used to think,
That standing. on the grave's, dark
Willi vast eternity befcre
A plunge! Now "on the other shore"
Are mvccIi i-t liouers of varied hue,
Elysiun fields aie brought to view.
! Alls lovely as as a summer's morn,
i And fragrance on the air is bourne.,
And cherubim with snowy wing
In dulcet strains there sweetly sing.
While harps of gold the niithiun swell
'And just below u brimstone Hell!
Long years ago muuc thousand ycai
The priests made Hell to augment
In it poor mills were cast and burned:
. "I'was made of course for the unlearned,
' For those who could not read or write,
To force submission by the fright
Of that dread 'place for men were
' That sinning mortals to it brought,
1 oul'.l writhing gioan,
m chains, m
Through endless time in vain, in
For their i dense, at any cost,
Would plead forever, ov r lost,
t With tender eye to heaven would look,
' And see a sweet and purling brook,
l'laced there, no doubt, their pangs
j And add more torments to their Hi ll.
, Oh horiid place! in il were cast
Uniiuinhcied mills so vast so vast !
Go cotintthe sands on ocean's shore,
i And multiply them o'er and o'er,
, And still the number will not tell
Jnc half the souls coiidcmn.itl (o Hell!
i And yi t 'tis said, "since Adam's fall,"
.There's room ah, ves! in Hell for
i And more beside for young and old,
I For high and low. For we are told
That king, and prince and beggar man,
"Anil clulil that measures not a span,
O'er that dread Hell piofusely strown,
For Adam's sins and not their own!
Ah, yes 'lis said there side by side,
Are mothers grey, and lovely bride,
' And little babe, and aged sue,
! Distorted in that liquid lire.
j There, too(j that throng of heathen
Willi horrid eyes and demon faces,
1 Who in their earth-life never heard
i Of Gospel truth one single word;
i Hut all reduced to common level,
Presided over by the Devil.
I Fternal ages there to dwell,
j Without relief in Hell! in Hell!
! Some thousand years, I said, or more,
! This Hell's been preached to rich and
j To high and low, to small and great,
j In heathen laud, in Christian state,
I Till it became the common tether
I That held IheChristian creeds together,
' The corner stone in every creed,
The germ of faith, the Christian seed,
A mighty weapon in the hand
Of priest and preacher in the land,
! A terror that was ever ready
I To use with skill on the unsteady.
1 That none might he left in the lurch,
"I'was made a dogma in the church,
1 And he who doubled brimstone Hell
! Was styled, alas! an Infidel!
Hut now the wondrous revelation,
Astounding to a Christian nation
"Thoio is no Hell!" oh glorious
j Is from the Christian pulpit taught.
Away goes Hellas Hies a pigeon,
and leaves but heaven in religion!
On man new hope begins to dawn
j The Devils dead his business gone!
I As every dolt must know full well,
I 'I he Devil s Useless without Hell.
, Oil blissful thought! for rich and
For knave and rogue, and many more,
i Who strive to live by way of cheating,
; Wjth them 'twill have a happy greeting
Now they'll rejoice; their voieesswell
, "There is no Hell!" no Hell! no Hell!
' Hash man! stop here! go not too fast,
For you must find a Hell at last.
1 Stay the mad thought, for nature true
I Deals ever honestly with you.
For every wrong that you commit
Some punishment must come, most tit ;
For every crime that e'er befel
There is meet punishment in Hell:
I Not brimstone Hell with horrid Devil,
j Hut Hell proportioned to the evil,
i Go where you may on land or sea,
From Hell fiom Hell von cannot
For Hells are many, great and small,
Am) cairicd in the breasts of all;
They're banks upon which Nature
Her checks to pay for broken laws.
