fate of Mother Eve. We were all busy with

A recent visit to this thriving business cen
tra demonstrated the fact that the prosperity
of Umatilla county is increasing eveu beyond
the expectations of its lst wUhers. Weston
is keeping pace and eveu getting ahead ot
other interior cities, which have far more ad
vantages and were started under fairer aus
pices. Each succeeding visit shows us some
thing new in the way of enterprise, nnd in a
few years we may confidently expect to see
rue city assume metropolitan dimensions
This is due iu a re-it uie isure to the spirit
of enterprise and optimist sentiment possessed
by its citizens who ure lire, go-ahrad bu-ineas

The Chinese have for agps been ah ex
clusive people; by trading, law, custom
and language, they have continued bo.
The Pacific Coast is almost universal iu
its Visli thai this exclnsiveness bad never
been infringed upon to tn'e extent of
permitting the Chinese to emigrate to
othor - countries. About five porta of
Commerce have been kept open to foreign
er?, of that vast domain, so that the
almost unlimited productions of that
men, aware of the fa t that this is tlie a-e of I country have been obtainable only under
competition, and if they do not keep step
with the spirit thereof, others nv st assuredly
will. A fine lame dul le brick building is
n-.w being erected by Mr. J. E. Jones, one
of th most enterprising men in the city. It
uill be of two stories, nnd when liuished, will
cost nearly $6,000. The upper portion will
be ased for a Ma-onic hall and the lower part
divided into two lar-e stores which will be
occupied by himself and Messrs. Dusenbery
Jfc Iiianiond, whose large and increasing busi
nes demand !arg r premises.. Mr. N. Dus
enbery wiij leave for Sun Frauci.-co this week
in order to pur. hase a very large stock of
goods to supply his demand The building
will lie called the White Hoosa; ia SO tcet

the city. Me-srs. Sailing A- Keeaa are old

we have but litt le doubt but that they will

converted. Long life and prosperity to them

who know how to keep a hotel and his guests

length as if the great, serpent-like i'n
culms that bis coiled round ' and com
pressed outside com tiunieation has at
length been enervated by the resistles
force of civilization, aud China, that
wriggling mass of almond-eyed prejudice,
is to have its mural barriers of isolation
shattered at a blow, and permit commer
cial ingress to its centre. Just think of
350,000,000 of people whose imports ard
exports combined have not amounted to
as many dollars per unnum, bursting
forth in one bound to free and unrestrict

ble ino:atit, betokening a radical waking
up in Chinese head quarter. . We await
more definite information.

Contempt of Court.
During the week a man hy the mime of
Tyson Jr. was lined S10 by Justice Powers
'or contempt of court. It a; pears that Pro-eb-tel
Bro. levied upon a wagon the prorty
f Tyson, and the ollicer ave him permiss on
to use t he wagon on the iiirm until the day of
a e. Tys .n was not satisfied With this, but
rove t:ie wag in into Washington Territory,
o,;e:her with some ot'ier property. When
the coestaMe discovered that the property
vas gone he proceeded to arrest Tyson for
larceny and on the hearing it seemed that
I'yson did not have any sinister designs in
taking the property beyond the jurisdiction
of the court. But the court very properly
lined Tyson as aforesaid ind thereby the
school fund is enrighed that much, and Mr.
taught a forcible lesson as to the incon
venience of making too free with property
ind-r the custody of the law. It is seldom
he people of this section have to be punished
for tUis sort of crime, but it is well to nip such
tendencies in the bud.
The branch raiirouu iroin Whitman to
Blue Mountain is a matter of surprise to
all the business men who visit this part
of the country. It seems to thin to be
gin no place and end nowhere. We are
not surprised that this should lie the case.
If the n ad ran from Wa:la Waila to
Weston, than its object would "be patent
to all. We hope soon to see it thus, by
completing the line to Weston, and swing
ing that portion of it beyond Milton
r.-und to Walla Walla. This would en
sure an immense increase iu the freight
ing business of the road and would create
a pnssenger traffic that would be highly
remunerative to the Company. Will it

Weston Hancock and Enzllsli Club-
Pursuant to notice in last week s issuo of
the Leader, the Club assembled to listen to
X. T. Caton ou the political issues of the day
Owing to the season of tlie year, tlie tanning
community was not largely represented, yet
a goodly number was in attendance. Ac
companyiiig the principal speaker from Walla
Walla were Mr. Ijunar, Into of Georgia, and
1'. J, Purker, of the W. W. .Statesman.
Judge -Crawford, President of the Club,
called the meeting to order, am1, after a few
preliminary remarks, invited Mr, Lunar to
the platform. Though not there with tha
intention, he favored the audience with i
sh rt, lively speech, giving place to Mr,
Caton. who held the eudien e for an hour
nod a h .H. He encouraged no partisan pas
ion, but reasoned, backed by statistics a

reit Democratic basis, "A strict mterpreta-
a n of the fundamental law."' Throughout
he was clear, fair und l igical, aud was inter
rupted bv frequent bursts of applause. Mr.
Parker was va.ted for, and "effused" some
more Democratic enthusiasm, whieb termin

harvest field near Oregon City, mft with
a fearful death. Fu.il. nan was busily at
work, when the team of horses attached
to the r aper suddenly became frightened
at sotr.e object, ai.d started to run away.
The driver tried his u'most to p-strum
the horses, but was unsuccessful, and
the animals making a sudden turn. Fail

both of his legs were cut otf by tbe sha' p
