THE OREGON SCOUT"
AMOS K. JONES
City and County Official Paper.
Thursday, Oct. lOtli, 1881).
Tin: Flathead Indians of Montana
diner widely from most other tribes on
this continent. They nro not warri
ors, nor nro they lazy and good for
nothing. On the contrary, most of
them arc thrifty farmers, whoso indus
try and skill are attested by big stacks
of hay and grain about their dwellings.
"What has become of Vice-President
Levi P. Morton? We have heard of
Blaine and Harrison and "Windom and
the bucolic secretary, tho complaisant
Uncle Jerry, and the late commission
er of pensions; but of Mr. Morton, not
at all. Nobody seems to know or caro
whether he is in Washington or some
Tm: latest development of the auto
matic machine is a Dr. Curcall, in
Holland. It is a wooden figure of n
man, with compartments all over it,
labeled with tho names of various ail
ments. If you have n pain, find its
corresponding location on tho figure,
drop a coin into the slot, and tho pro
per pill or powder will como out.
Tub New York World says: An
organ of the piotcctionist ring adjures
the woolen manufactuicrs to stand by
tho duty on wool; It says that "if
protection makes their crude material
cost more than their foreign competi
tors pay, it enables them to sell their
manufactured jiroduct at a higher
price." This is not tho sort of argu
ment which tho monopoly-defenders
use just beforo election. They then
tell tho voters that tuxes on wool and
its manufactures make clothing cheap
er. Now they tell tho manufacturers
that protection ''enables them to sell
their pioduct at a higher price." Tho
fact is that, by depriving the manu
facturers of wool needed for admixturo,
tho tariff helps to givo tho homo mar
ket for the best goods to foreigners
who sold hero last year nearly .ffiO.OOO,
000 of woolen goods, upon which our
people paid about. $110,000,000 in taxes.
Tin-: Portland Sunday Welcome
says: In reupeet to tho past issuance
of either state or municipal 'bonds "by
tho city of Portland, tho same genius
of financial "innouenco" must have
been the guiding iulluenco of each.
The Oregon war bonds wero issued in
1805 to tho amount of .$2:11 ,:)(, with
no sinking fund, and during tho past
twonty-eight yours tho stato has paid
interest on them to tho amount of
$:88,72-l, which aggregates Jt?ir7,-I28
more than tho principal. Tho stato
has an agent employed at Washington
on commission to collect theso bond
war claims from tho general govern
ment; and if ho succeeds with tho war
dopaitmcnt in getting these bond war
claims allowed, tho principal is all that
may bo expected after being scaled by
tho board of examiners. Tho Portland
bonded debt for the city park purchase
about u score of yours ago, which has
been paid in the sumo way a time or
two in inteiest, is "a piuco oil' tho same
Tho Orogoniau of the I)d inst. makes
this astounding declaration: ''Tho
republican parly not only proposes to
tax the people for thu actual
needs of the government, but also to
encourage and build up our American
industries that need nourishment and
protection," What oh what has be
come of tho laboring man that needed
protection lust full? Is it possible that
tho giguntio indiistiial monopoly of
this country, lorined by mild and sin
less republicans "Our American In
dustries," and tho laboring man of tho
country stand on tho uaniu footing and
leap benefits from tho same souice?
It would seem that thu labor of tho
country and tho "American Indus
tries" aro constantly at war and that
tho more powerful tho "Industries"
become tho more grinding and op
prossivo to labor they become. Is not
this true? "Tux tho people." The
republican party is in favor of taxing : -riio grand jury is an oxpoiuive hum
tho people in order to nourish and , ,g ami th0 sooner it is abolished the
protect our "American Industries." hotter for the pockets and the security
Ah, this admission is made on Oct, tld, j uf the peoplo.
Washington, North and South Dakota V iinn
having gone heavily republican, con
sequently tho hold admission that tho
republican party propose to rob (tax)
the people fur tho purpose of making
our pot industries more powerful aud
oppressive. Ah, my dear Harvey, you
nro willing to admit tho truth when
you seo that thu prospects are good
for .tho republicans having a long lease
of power. (Jo on and educate tho peo
plo on republican dootrine and if they
can change their minds as often as
you change your dootrine, you may
succeed in keeping them in rank.
UNIOX COOIV NOT ' I
The more careful and cuticl ilx
examination paid to tin' town of Un
ion, the more convinced is tl" -vcr
that thcro is a strength h: h r -..n ..!
j practical way of attending toLoown
business which is a sure mi)ort in
tlm otnf riip?rn nnd unnerlaintiea of
booms and factitious development.
n,, i ...... i iu.
dangerous and deceptive growth which
reminds a visitor of a mushroom origin.
Wo have not laid out all the adjoining
farms into town lots, we have reserved
something for agricultural puiposc.
A hundred-and-sixty-ncro tract is a
moderate entailment to old Union.
We can and do boast of our advan
tages, and aro not afraid that au ex
amination will disclose the shallow
pretense of a pen and ink boom. Wo
have wood, water and grass in abun
dance, and duly, practically and eco
nomically distributed, and the tax re
ceipts 'of tho county show we have
thousands of cattle on a thousand hills.
and arc not entirely dependent for
life upon tho pulling and blowing of
railroads, or streets, and blocks nnd
allevs or nublic squares. When ve
plow and plant and produce our crops
wo know that seed timo and harvest
no'cr shall fail, and thus far wo have
had market for it all. Still we are not
unmindful of tho great impetus that
will bo given to trndo and commerce
by tho construction of a competing
I railroad, and still further, tho men af
flicted with tho rail mania, arc not
limited to tho present decade. There
is more than one Hunt, and tho peoplo
of Union can live as their fathers have
lived, without being torn and worn by
nervous doubts and uncertainties! Wo
do not propose to pin our hopes of life
to one financial enterprise. When the
great business world look's through its
business glasses, tho lens will surely
magnify tho natural resources of Un
ion, so that the arteries of trade will
enlarge with a'fullnees and vigor not
to bo obtained by any false or forced
premises. Wo can bide our time, and
the history of all countries shows that
if a region has undeveloped resources,
sooner or later tho magic wand of en
terprise and thrift will wave over all
Wo believe tho Hunt road will be
built. We bclievo tho advantages re
sulting to Union county will be almost
innumerable, but should it not lo con
structed, wo propose to continuo to
plow and plant, and publish to the
world, thatjor salubrity of climate, fer
tility of soil, extont and richness of
mines, wo have few equals and no
In addition to these generalities wo
claim that wo havo other arguments
to bring to bear upon tho projectors of
this great railroad connection with the
extreme northwest, which they cannot
ignore. Our mines aro being rapidly
developed and aro demanding uu out
let. They must have an outlet, and
aro not fully willing to depend upon
tho tender mercies of Portland dicta
tors. Potween Sparta, Cornucopia and
Sanger there aro millions invested.
Union is on tho line of that outlet, and
when tho Hunt road roaches Union it
will be pushed on through these min
eral belts, and southeastward towards
tho center of our continent. Then the
Sound will bo reached at the north
west, and a grand continuous line, em
bracing commercial, agricultural and
mining resources will be established.
Such is tho Hunt system, or a part
thh (iKAND ,im:v system.
A close observer of the workings of
tho grand jury system will readily too
that it is a farce and ought to bo abol
ished. Neither law nor fiietr. are ro
gaided in many oases, aud through
thu prejudice of two or three men who
aro not possessed of sufficient jwcup
tiou to dintinguish between u fact and
a ilea thu law is flagrantly violated and
tho guilty go untfouthod. IJwry man
charged with crime ought to bo
brought directly beforo the court aud
tried where competent evidence only
is allowed instead of being tried bvfort'
tho grand jury first, where anything
i and everything is admitted as proof,
