It is an emmevnia impression, perhaps
too pravalent, tiut the education, of the
rising gtrtwijetiois must be acquired ex-
'Am tern that it is almost essential to the
tMRSMaf the rudiments or elemen
tary oranmim, ttiat children attend our
..eouvnon schools, yet it must not be for
gotten that there is a kind of useful edu
cation that oan not be acquired within
the narrow confines of tho school room,

in the current literature of. the day and
in the books that can now be secured so
.cheaply. The man whoso education is
con&Mt to that obtained in schools and
colleges is apt to be narrow-minded and
pedantic, . He is incapable ot taking
.broad, liberal and comprehensive views
' of subjects, and their name is legion,
cmtside of a purely scholastic training.
Towards the obtaining of this desirable
' klmtaf education, nothing so largely cor-
HeW!ejrj free access to a well selected
library and the pure literature of the day.
-In this connection we cannot too much
commend the action of our citizens in
keeping this important point in view in
the construction of our Ciry HalL A good
rem for a library is one of its most prom
inent features. It is to be constantly
jHtppliedvith instructive books and choice
ijotmsals and magazines. This is an ex
(wilent idea and we earnestly desire to
nee it faithfully carried out. Tho benefits
accruing from sucltari institution proper
ly conducted, are incalculable. Not only

perience by this method of. education.
It is no argument against this rueaus of
acquiring knowledge that it is gained by
such irnpnrceptibfo degrees that the pos
easer is scarcely conscious q the progress
he is making. And it has this adv&n
, tage over the regular routine system that
.the ideas that are mastered are so blcnd
,ed with those slready possessed that they
seem to;be the natural production of the
Mtttdent's on intellcgeuce. Therefore
fthey are not apt tp be forgotten. They
are indelibly engraven on memory's tab
lets. Besides, the knowledge thus ac
quired is more varied and practical. We
liOpe therefore that no pains or expense
0vill be spared to make our City Hall
library a credit to(he place, for we feel
assured that it will yield a rich remuner
ation for the outlay.
The early history of ever country e:
. tabliahes the fact that there is more or
- less laxity in the enforcements of law
and administration of justice. The Pa
cific Cost has been no exception. Lynch

.under .tnat anomalous category "neces
sary evils." But that day is past Ore
gon has a full and formulated judiciary,
and we have a right to expect that acts
infringiag on the rights of person or pro
perty, should receive adequate punish
ment. Cut while capital punishment
if prescribed for murder ir. the first dc-
gree, the verdict in our state has been
seldom followed by the penalty. Some-
thing wrong here. If the penalty be x -
cessive, have it modified, but while it is
law let it be enforced. Persona convict
ed of various crimes have been sent to
the penitentiary for a specified time.

Th Portland Oregonian might be the
most influential journal in the state of
Oregon, and under different management
it would be entitled to that distinction.
As it is conducted now the question of
its superiority may well be doubted. It
it is true that it possesses two of the
great requisites necessary to placing it in
that position, viz: wealth and circula
tion. But these of themselves do not
constitute a great newspaper, nor yet an
influential one. In order to rank as a
great journal it must be permeated with
the dignity of truth, must be above the
wilful abuse of its power, must not stoop
to personalities nor be swayed by parti
san politics. Of late this has not , been,
the course of the Portland Ortgonian!
It is true that ever since it fell into the
hands of liar ry Scott, that it has lost
no opportunity to proclaim that it is all
that a great paper shoald be, while not
unfreqtiently the same issue would belie
its pretensions. That paper however is
not the creation of Harvey Scott's inven
tive genius, though said genius appears
in it more frequently than is necessary
fur the plain statement of facts. The
Oregonian was quite a newspaper when
Harvey Scott was digging ditches on
Grayback Bar, Idaho, an occupation,
which by the way was cleaner and more
honorable than many that he has since
been engaged in. Scott,a worst attempt
at being majestically severe is found in
the issue of Aug 4th, in which speaking
of the Democratic papers of the State he
"Their lack of energy and industry,
their stupidity, their total want of con
ception of the functions of a newspaper,
their meAgerness, pattriness, shabby ness
and inanity, are all phenomenal.
When such a journal us the Oregonivn
prostitutes its position by such a sweep
ing and unfounded charge as the above,
it forfeits all claim to being a great or
even a respectable sheet. While we
may have more Republican journals in
Oregon than Democratic ones, it is not
(rotable tLat the former represent more
ebility or better editorial", than the latter.
Even if it were so, it would indicate
very bad manners in the journal that
would conceitedly arrogate' to itself all
the ability. The truth is that the Ore
gonian in the article referred to was
making a desperate efibrt to gt even
with the Albany Democrat, that has so
frequently spiked Scott's heaviest pieces
with a f ew pointed sentiments; and in
stea lof meeting his opponent in a spiritof
fairness he retaliates by making a whole
sale tirade against the Democratic press,
which every intelligent man in the state
knows to bu neither gentlemanly nor
Walla Statesman nays:
'The last number of the East Oregonian
proves most conclusively that it is be
yond all hops of ever becoming decent.
Poor thing ! it has lost all the influence
it ever did have."
While this is rather sad, we are
bound to admit that it is too true. If
the editors of the E. O. had a vestige of i
lespoct for our county left, they would
sell out, and any change would be for
the better. It is a weekly disgrace, and
if possessed of any influence, would do
