Tun protectionists have made a largo
mistake. They bavo neglcctod to put
a tarilFon gold and silver. Thus theeo
infant industries, the gold and silver
mines, arc left unprotected, and the
United State3 is liable to be lloodod
with gold and silver, the product of
tho pauper labor of Europo, which
would of course cause great sorrow and
suffering, particularly among the la
boring mon of this nation. Fallon
It sometimes costs more to got mis
sionaries home from heathen lauds
than it cost oiiginally to fend them
out. Tho Rovh. Taylor, Edwards and
Hooper, who were captured by Bush-
iris and held for ransom, have been re
leased on the payment of jCI.OOO, the
sum demanded by their captors, in de
fault of which the cannibals of Ztuizi

NoTiu.vn so delights tho eoiiI of the
Ghoul who presides ovortho Oregonian
as to claw and scratch into tho graves
of dead men who voted tho democratic
ticket. Trying to write tomething ex
ceeding vulgar and abusive to tho late
William H. Barntun, it said that ho
"was one of tho longest and deftest
fingers on Tildcn's dirty land." This,
to speak mildly, is a dirty, contempti
ble remark. Such vile abuse of a man
liko Tilden is very impudent when
coming from an organ which is notor
iously for sale on every occasion, and
which has no political principles ex
cept to tell out to scoundrels for as big
a prico as possible. Jiast Oregonian,
Tin: fees of grand 'jurors and wit
nesses beforo tho grand jury at tho
circuit court makes quite a little item
which the county has to pay. A
grand jury is a port of middleman be
tweon the committing magistrate and
the trial jury of tho court, and is a use
less expense. Felonies are first' heard
bofore a justice of tho peace. ' If that
official who hears both sides of tho
case deems tho ovidonco sufficient he
holds the defendant to answer before
tho grand jury, which only hears one
side. Why not abolish tho grand jury
system and allow the justice to hold
criminals to appear "for trial?" It
would be an immense saving and the
ends of justice would bo equally well
Borvod and tho majesty of tho law
would not bo lessoned.
Tiiky have a "school for journalism"
in an eastern college. Kaoli graduate,
on doparting to tako a position to re
port local items at a salary of $7f a
wcok, signs tho following : "I hereby
solemnly promise that 1 will never use
tho following expressions, or any of
them, in my professional work, and
that I will use all honorable means to
prevent their use by othors: M'iro

of battle had cleared away,' 'true facts,'

Tin: La Grando papers state that a
big grain clovator "at least a hundred
feet high," is toon to bo erected iu ha
Grando. Whothor this is a fact or
only an other windy obulition from
that colicy burg wo do not know. At
any rate tho grain elevator system has
been fully explained in these coulmns
during the past few weeks, and tho
farmers are doubtless awaro of tho ef
fect it will have upon them. It would
be a cause of considerable alarm to
them were it not for tho fact that tho
advent of tho 0. it W. T. road into
this valley in tho near future will run-rim-ineffectual
tho efforts of this twin of
tho 0. K. i N. Co. monopoly to lleeco
tho people. If wo got a comix'ting

whether a grain elevator is built at la

article of wheat alone, were the Hunt
! oxtended hero? It would be
simply immense, and the subsidy
raked by Mr. Hunt sinks into insisni-
! cance in comparison with the great ben-
i amount to am m bringing the much
desired state of affairs about.
After a long time of "indefatigable
work the Pendleton people have raised
the Hunt subsidy, and the road will
bo completed to that place in a few
weeks. Tho people are greatly elated
over their good fortune, and we are in
hopes that tho people of Grande Bondo
valley will be able to rejoice in a sim
liar manner. The East Oregonian
'Tisdone; the good work is done
and wo arc to bavo Hunt's railroad
and competition in freight. After sev
eral weeks of hard and indefatigable
work by the committee appointed by
the Board of Trade to raise the re
quired subsidy, success has crowned
their efforts, and tho subsidy has been
raised and tho road secured. Mr.
Hunt came to see tho people of I'cn
dleton two weeks ago and generously
proposed to tako certain property be
longing to tho town at a good, round
figure and givo credit on tho subsidy
for tho sum, to wit, $-10,000. Tho
committee then went to work with re
newed energy, and thanks to tho liber
ality of tho people of Pendleton and
the surrounding country, raised the
required amount. Tho town council
was then called together and tho nec
essary ordinances prepared, examined,
criticised, amended and agreed upon
by tho council and Mr. I Tunt, and to
day Mr. Hunt has a force of engineers
and surveyors locating the lino of the
road. In six weeks from this time
wo may oxpect to see the road graded
to tho Umatilla river and carry to
tide-water the wool clip of this season.
This will be a saving of an immenso
amount of money to the wool growers
of our county. Tho beneficial effects
of tho proposed extension of Mr.
Hunts road into town is already per
ceivable. Tho prico of real estate is
advancing. Quito a number of sales
have been made already within tho
last few days and that too by purchas
ers from a distance. Well may the
people generally, anil the property
owners in particular, congratulate
themselves on tho result and now
since they have made a more intimate
acquaintance with Mr. Hunt, are loud
in his praho for .what ho has consented
to do for us. While, no doubt ho will
be greatly benefited by coming with
his road to Pendleton the road will be
of much greater benefit to I'onrileton.
Nearly all tho property owners, busi
ness men, clerks, and laborers in Pen
dleton responded liberally to tho sub
sidy; but liko all other communities,
there are a few men in Pendleton
whose souls would rattle in tho hollow
of a grain of mustard seed men who
are willing to receive tho benefits from
any and all enterprises, but let their
neighbors pay for tho same. God pity
thorn, for of such is not the kingdom of
progress. Tho chasm of dull times
that seemed to bo yawning at us is
now bridged over, and a reign of pros
erity dawns upon us that will result
from tho splouded harvest wo antici

and his railroad 1 We now havo two

Our contemporary across the street
charges County Judge Goodall with
illegal appropriation of the county
funds, and publishes a list of warrants
drawn by him, to verify the statement.
A number of them are for justico fees
and similar work. As the offiec of
county judge makes the incumbent
also a magistrate we cannot see why
he should not serve in the latter ca
pacity as well as the former and re
ceive pay for his services. If we un
derstand it, the county judge by virtue
of his office is empowered to act as a
committing magistrate, but it is not
incumbent on him to do so. It is
entirely apart from his duties as coun
ty judge. County judges arc certainly
allowed tho same fee bills as Justices
of the Peace for conducting examina
tions of iicrsons charged with crime.
As well deny him the right to charge
for taking acknowledgement of a deed
or other instrument. If a man should
get the judge to unite him in marriage
with the lady of his choice it is hardly
probable that ho would have the cheek
to refuse to pay him because he is
employed by tho county as judge.
Some of the items we know nothing
about, but as wo have great faith in
the (integrity of Judge Goodall, we
have no doubt ho can and will explain
theso satisfactorily. He is not the
man to withold information from any
ef his constituents or by silence admit
the truth of accusations brought
against him. Our contemporary is
right in calling attention to any of the
official acts of Judge Goodall or any
other official, if he cannot understand
the same, or if they appear at all
crooked, and the people at largo will
certainly expect a proper explanation
to be made. If Judge Goodall is guilty
of any malfeasance he should bo
promptly arraigned for it. It would
appear, however, to a disinterested
spectator that these accusation are"
somewhat frivolous and brought by
our contemporary at this time to di
vert public attention from the more
criminal and serious charges preferred
by Judge Goodall against Sherifi'IIam-
ilton. If, however, either of these men
fail to como into the newspaper courts
and vindicate themselves beforo the
people, they should and will be more
umarily dealt with. Judge Goodall
informed us that he intended to fully
explain matters, but would do so in
the paper in which the accusations
were made. This is right and proper.
Although wo have invited Sheriff
Hamilton to appear and vindicate
himself from tho charges against him,
he seems to be very slow about do
ing it. If he continues silent the people
lit large must conclude that ho is guil
ty, and will no doubt insist on his
removal from office, and that action
bo at once taken against him by tho
proper legal authorities.
A nuimiNO genius at Sumnicryillo
writing to the La Grando Gazette says :
"If the people of Union expect to get
the 0. it W. T. railroad they had bet
ter be adding fifteen or twenty thous
and dollars more to that !?G3,000 of
theirs." Ho also says in stating the
amount of tho various productions of
the county that "the valley produces
1920 tons of gold dust." The manner
in which ho slings around suggestions,
advice and gold dust in truly startling.
We will say for his information, how
ever, that Union has had over $71,000
subscribed to the subsidy for some
time, and that during the past week
$5,000, more has been pledged. It is
very probable that Union will do her
