Tiik assessment of property in Oregon
for this year will probably bo from
$0,000,000 to $10,000,000 larger than
it was m loaii. If tho other counties
in tho State could have shown as great
a gain in. wealth for time as Union
county, tho sum total would have
reached nearly live limes that amount.
Bishop Wamcek, of tho dioceso of
Minnesota, is having built at the Pull
man Palace car works n niintiltirc
church on wheels. It is proposed t
make regular visits to all tho small
villages along tho lino of tho railroad
that arc loo por to support n minister.
This odd church will comfortably seat

Whiles tho red men aro Hocking
about a man whom thoy claim to lie
Messiah, and indulging in ghost dan
ces in his honor, a party ol people
called tho pre-millenialislH havo gath

convention and aro predicting Iho
speedy coining of tho Lord. In this
instance the Indians havo got ho
start of tho pre-niillenialisla.
The Kansas farmer who was olected
a district judgo will lake a sixty days
cour30 at Ann Arbor University to lit
himself for tho bonch. It used to bo
con8idejcd thut, beside an elementary
legal education, it required tho "lucu-
orations oi iwoniy years" to mako a
man a judgo; but tho farmors allianco
of Kansas has squashed all that old
lasinoncd nonsense, mm inoy aro per
fectly light, What is needed is more
good common sense and less law.
Tin: character of Iago is moro heart
ily despised than any other portrayed
1 rt t i .
ny onaKcspcaro, aim yet it is not an
unfamiliar character. Tho crafty, cun
ning, treacherous, hypocritical, unscru
pulous, lying and cruel attributes of
Iago arc frequontly combined in inon
wo nieot overy day. Thoy aro soon
found out, howovor, and receive tho
contempt thoy deserve. A man is lia
ble to bo injured by having anything
to do with them, oven in tho capacity
of an onomy.
The reckless pension policy of tho
Harrison administration is in a fair
way to bankrupt tho govorninont.
About tho first thing to occupy tho at
tention of congress will bo tho pension
deficiency bill. 1 1 will call for upwards
of $(10,000,000, and when tho now pen
sion laws go into cfleot noxt year it
will require an appropriation of ovOr
$100,000,000. It should bo romotn-
bored that tho grcatorpnrt of this largo
sum nover reaches tho deserving sol
dier, his widow or his orphans.
Anyone who will tako tho troublo to

tho lcgifclaturo of, 1891.
.Tuixii: Fee is rapidly growing in
popular favor, as a conscientious and
ablo judgo, among tho lawyers and
litigants uh well us tho taxpayers of tho
eixtli judicial district. Speaking of
tho recent term of court hold in Bakor
county, at which Judgo Too presided,
tho Bakor City Democrat Fays : "Cir
cuit court for Bakor county has beon
in session two weeks, and a very lengthy
docket has been disposed of in an ex
peditious uud economical nuumor.
Hon. Jns. A. Pec, judgo prodding, is

Tub Rosoburg Review says: "For
president of tho United States, Grover
Cleveland ; for vicc-presidont, Sylvester
1'ennoyer. That is a ticket that would
go in upon a tidal wavo of enthusiasm.
Tho people are tired of tho hypocrisy
of republicanism by which monopo
lists nro enabled in tho name of pro
tection to rob tho laborer and produ
cer. Tho peoplo demand an honest
government economically adminis
tered and that taxes should go into
the public treasury and not into the
pockets of Carnegie, Wannamakcr and
other blood suckers."
Oun editorial sanctum is given to
hospitality. No person is any more
welcome, however, than ono who brings
an item of news even though it con
cerns himself. To make this business
successful an editor of a weekly news
paper is compelled to devote most of
his time to work insido tho office. IIo
naturally considers overy man who
furnishes him with an item to maks
his columns more newsy and interest
ing, as a benefactor. Wo hope that
none of our roudcrs will feel tho least
hesitancy in visiting our office or ap
proaching us on the street with a re
quest to publish such an item. Tho
moro interest wo causo you to havo in
tho paper tho moro welcome will its
EvKitY State and territory in tho
Union should pass stringent tramp
laws. In this way tho nuisance may
be abated to a certain extent if not en.
tircly obliterated. Tho law recently
enacted by tho legislature of Iowa for
tho caro and punishment of these indo
lent individuals is a good one and will
undoubtedly havo tho desired eH'oct of
cither ridding that State of their ob
noxious presence or transforming them
into wido awako and energetic people.
It provides that any malo person six
teen years of ago or ovor, who is phy
sically ablo to work, who is wandering
about begging or idle, and who can
not snow reasonable enorts to secure
employment, shall bo doomed a tramp
sent to jail and put to hard work.
In am. probability tho voters of tho
United Stato will havo tho pleasure of
voting for the two undoubted leaders
of their respective parties in 1892.
binco tuo present session ol congress
convened a careful investigation of tho
feelings of Iho loading republicans dis
closes tho fact that Bluino is almost the
unanimous choice of tho republicans.
It is ovon said that but ono man, Treas
urer Huston, predicts tho nomination
of Harrison in 1S92. It is equally ccr
tain that Hill will accept the senator-
boat from Now York which leaves Mr.
Cleveland a clear Hold for tho nomina
tion. No ono pretends to disputo tho
fact that these two aro shrewd men and
tho leadors of their respective parties,
and tho raco, if made, will bo strictly
on tho merits of tho two platforms.
Tho personal fight was niado in 188-1.
County otficors in tho State of Wash
ington elected in November, will as
sumo their duties under tho now law,
which fixes salaries, and will turn tho
fees ovor to tho county. In most cases
tho salaries aro ridiculously low where
capable services aro domandod by tho
public. Yet tho law is a stop in tho
right direction. Thoro aro counties in
this Slate whero feos received by county
officers aro out of all proportion to tho
work of tho incumbent. A law which
provides that each county ollicor, now
paid by fees, mako quarterly reports of
his receipts and expenditures to tho
county commissioners, and bo allowed
to return only a fair compensation for
his own services ay from $1,000 to
$7,000 por year, might solvo tho prob
lem, Tho balance turned into the
county troaaury would bo quito
item in some cases,
Eastern Orogon'a Products.
Wo glean tho following from Tho
Dalles Times Mountaineer: Until
within tho past fow years Eastern Oro-
gon was known only for its boundloss
pastures ; but recontly its exports of
wool and wheat has placed it in tho list
of tho most produoiivo portions of tho
northwost. For some timo past wool
raised in this portion of Oregon has
found its way into tho Boston market,
and wheat raised east of tho Cascades
has been sold at a good ilguro in Liver
pool. Tho only means of transporta
tion has been tho ono lino of railroad,
audas thooultivation of aeroago has in
creased theso havo apparently decreased
until tho present season thousands of
ton of whoat aro exposod to tho ele
ments. Tho emergency has arisen
when tho Inland Empiro should do
something to help herself, and tho
available romcdy is by water commu
nication with tho oooan. Every town
tributary to tho Columbia thould com
bine to put on a fleet of boats to move
our products to scabonnl, As soon nu
his isdono tho government will im
derstand our needs and will give us
liberal appropriations for tho improve
ment of the great artery of commerce
for tno northwest tho Columbia.
When it is known that wo havo an out
let for our productions, capital will bo
attracted in this direction, and tho de
velopment of our natural resources
will begin in earnest. Thcso matters
arc worthy tho consideration of our
citizens, and will be stimulativo of fu
ture progress and prosperity.
