a very good entertainment.
The Baker City lllmle : veils: "Why is it
that the Blade is the only paper that pays
any taxes?" Be c-a-w-l-m, brother, be
c-a-w-l-m. Notwithstanding your question
is a most devilish pertinent one, there is no
use getting excited. We agree with you
that a paper which pays no taxes should
not mako itself too conspicuous in offering
advice to peoplo who do.

The Centerville Hmxe 7Vw says: Last
Saturday tho O. cfc W. T, surveyors run
lines Into the city via Ryan Saddle for the
Union extension of Hunt's road from here.
This is one of the many routes that mar be
selected should the road go from here,
which is an almost assured fact with the
people of this place. The route, whllo not
being tho moit suitable to thi place is one
third shorter and one half less elevation
than many of tb,e route that have been
run from Walla Walla. It crosses the Pine
Creek Canyon about three miles above
Weston and follows a Gradual grade all the
way to this place, coining down the ridire
east of town, between h-TO and Weston
The surveyors it is learned arc surveying a
route from hcrcover the Thomas and Ruck!
pass via the Umatilla river. This route
our choice and has always been. Mr,
Hunt will be In tho city next week, when
wo may learn something tnoro authentic
about tho Union extension. It is an av
sured fact that Hunt's , road will bo ex
tended within tho limits of Pendleton in
side of nintcy days, when more active and
more assuming shape to tho Union extcn
tion will be made.
Oregon l'mdunt ions.
Oregon produces as line apples, pears
peaches and plums as nuy state in the Un
ion, and has thousands of acres of laud
suitable for the raising of fruit, yet there i
a large amount shipped here, and sold at
prices that yield a handsome profit to those
dealing in the same In fact, fruit always
commands a good price, but Oregon docs
not produce enough of her own cousump
tion. It is surprising to know this when
an acre of land will yield profit of from
f."0 to $500, and sometimes more. The
farmers of Oregon Imagine that nothing
but wheat can be raised here, but it is well
to know there is an immigration of 10J0
people a week arriving in the state, and the
dear old mossbacks are awakening to the
fact that we arc living in an advanced age,
They were good enough for their day but
that day is gone, and it is hoped never to
return. New blood has come among us,
and we are thankful indeed. The Oregon
of to-day is not the Oregon of ten years ago.
The march is onward, and wc feci that it is

At a meeting of the citizens held at the
city hall last Monday evening, it was dc
eidcd to celebrate the coming Fourth of
July, and do it in the proper style at that
it lias iiccn two or three years since wc
celebrated and it is our turn next. Our
friends througout the conntry and neigh
boring towns, it is expected, will visit us
this year, partake of our hospitality, and
help us "whoop things up'' for one day at
least. At the meeting, Monday, a commit
tee was appointed to solicit subscriptions.
Several hundred dollars were subscribed
on tho spot, and there is no doubt that
enough can be raised to make the affair a
success. The meeting adjourned to meet
to-night at the court house, and a large
attendance is expected.

The Walla Walla Statesman says: Mr.
ii. Vf. mint arrived in the city this morn
in. He rcnorts that the Pendleton people
have raised their subsidy of $10,000, and this
insures them connection with the O, tfc Y,
T. railway. Pendleton is wise in doing now
what she ought to have done some time
ago. The old saying, ''It is better late than
never," is applicable, and the money sub
scribed will bo returned to them many
times over by advaced values in real estate
and In many other ways. Mr. Hunt's road
has been a great benefit to Walla Walla ; it
will be likewise to Pendleton. Mr. Hunt
informs us that constructing will be com.
menced at once, and the road to Pendleton
will be rapidly pushed to completion.
Kcsult of Competition.
It is announced that the O, R. tfc N. Co.
intends to deliver grain in Tacoma, this
year by the way of Portland cheaper than
were rates on tho O. &. W. T. via the North
ern Facific. Of course this is the result of
a genuine war rate for freight, which the
farmers of this vicinity will happily bo ben
efited thereby. The Hunt road has been
the cause of great loss to the O. R. it N.
Co., and this movement on the part of tho
O. R. fc N. will only bu met with a like
movement on the part of the O. it W. T.
