The Wa:iiai; Crescent.
The 1 .it est news from litr.opo throws
a very sombre clan 1 over the waning
Crescent. The Hussions Lure crossed
the Balkans, have defeated tho Turks
in a heavy engjrgt-mcnt, are but a hun
dred milt's from the important city of
Adrianople, and soon will be beating
with their sabres against tho very walls
of Constantinople. The Turks on the
other hand are rent with fends, inde
pendent of their defeats ' by" Russia,
thousands of starving fugitives are hur
rying to Constantinople only to find
the Torte with depleted coffers and
mined credit. Tho very fortifications
around the Byzantine city are said to
"be inadequate, and imperfect and weak.
The Ottomans, furthermore, aro very
mnch irritated at England's course.
The Porte was induced to believe, that
inasmuch as John Bull was pecuniarily
interested in Turkey's success, he
would if need bo aid in bringing about
such a result. But the British lion
after making ono or two feeble growls.
which in do way frightened the Russian
"bear, became suddenly conscious of the
fact that "tho bloody serfs, you know,"
.would not scare worth a rouble, and
forthwith look the high ground of paci
fication and non-interrention.
Eastern Press on Chinese.
Tho stand that many Eastern papers
take on tho Chinese question is not un-
. like tbeir position on railroad subsidies.
They have no nse for such things now;
oil thoir needed railroads are built, and
it is very simple to take high moral
grounds against squandering the public
domain. They have received, in other
"words, all the pie they want, and now
oppose the hungry ones of the Pacific
: being fed with the same kind of diet.
In rery much the same way they act on
the Chinese question. There is no
danger of the Mongolians ever becom
ing so numerous as to interfere with
Eastern people, and'eonsequently they
insist upon a strict interpretation of the
"Burlingame treaty. The ulcer does not
biul them, and they insist upon our
Injuring it, in order that our national
honor may not bo blotted. It is very j
commendable no doubt in our far away
Eastern brothers taking this honorable
position, but where we have to suffer
o for the sake of enabling them to carry
their noses aloft, wo naturally object,
and seriously so too.
"Why Croak T
It seems to be the universal fashion
to groan and lament over the hard
times, debt, taxes, waste, expense and
ruin, and one runs a risk of being con-
. .sidered a heretic who dares to wear a
-cheerful face and suggest that possibly
the country is not going to "the demni
ion bow-wows." But there is a brighter
side to the situation, and in spite of
many drawbacks national matters are
not going on badly. Tho national debt
is under a steady process of reduction,
and most of the States are also able to
reduce, from time to time the debts in
curred, without being compelled to re
sorting to the Tennessee "game' which
costs more than it save3. Tho crops
have been unusually good for three
years; especially in Oregon; the farmers
are paying off their debts and beginning
. to feel themselves once more upon their
feet, and the year 1S73 is probably des
tined to mark tho revival of that pros-
. perity for which v,o have waited so
After Tennessee and Virginia shall
Tiave gotten through with skinning
their creditors in the interest of public
morality, it will bo in order for them to
propose au amendment to tho constitu
tion which shall prevent the disgraco
of repudiation by prohibiting any .State
from going into debt beyond its means
and from subsequently "going back
pn" its obligations. The States rights
people would naturally indulge in
somo very tall swearing over an inova
tion which had no other plea than hon
esty to support it, but if the guardian
ship of the financial honor and credit of
the country is not safe in the Lands of
the States i I should at once be put in
bands whero it would be safe, all
theories to the contrary not w ithstanding.
jTheold "war horses" of the Demo
cratic party are nosing about their
armorial closets and are brushing np
their battered helmets for another con
ieet. Their organs are flooded with ad
vice to "keep together," "bo not led off
-by side shows," look out for indepen
dent movements in the interest of
Mitchell," "vote the Democratic ticket

nee" and all that well worn thunder
But intelligent people have grown ac
tually heartsick of hearing this Lifalu

For workingmen we have the highest
opinion and regard, but for their lead
ers, ninety times out of a hundred,
nothing but contempt. Cassius who
attempted to force tho Agrarian lav up
on Rome was a most plausible talker,
and succeeded in sedueinpr the lower
classes into the belief that he was a
public benefactor, instead of the arch
demagogue. Let the laboring classes
of Oregou, before they sign their
names to the roll of any ephemeral
workingmen's organization, ask them
selves who are the leaders of the only
two clubs thus far formed in Oregou ?
Mr. Liawson, an erratic lawyer, free
lover and spiritualist, is tho President
of the Salem club, and a San Francisco
man, of whom no one knows anything
except that he has just come out of St.
Vincent's Hospital, is the President of
the Portland organization. The real
head, however, of -this latter society is
that incorrigible infidel Jl. C. Edmonds
a man who was hanged in effigy in
Union county last year by an indignant
people. He is kind of "advanced
idea" man himself, being a cross be
tween (in a mild form) Robert Dale
Owen ond Theodore Tilton. He has
changed his politics with every oppor
tunity to make by it, and we actually
believe that his sudden ardor in behalf
of the workingmen is actuated by a do
sire to build up his silly paper. This
man at one time worked as a cabinet
maker, but it was very uncongenial
labor, and he has ever since been mak
ing capital off it by having himself ad
vertised as the "Portland Mechanic."
We warn tho workingmen of Oregon
against theso demagogues, and assure
them that it is our belief that the move
ment is started with sinister motives
one of which is to make the leaders
better off at the expense of their dupes,
and another that these hard working
officers will bo ready in tho coming
political contest to sell out to the high
est bidder. Workingmen real work
ingmen, not incendiary idlers will be
ware of such leaders.
It is pretty safe to predict that in case
of a general European war, Germany
will practically annex Belgium. It is
possible that she may do so even in
times of peace, and do it with the con
sent of the little kingdom herself. Bel
gium is a very small territory, densely
filled with people who are industrious
and thrifty. Tho position it occupies
would make it a great accession to the
empire, and unusually good terms would
bo accorded the Belgians if they would
consent peaceably to become a part of
the German Union. Recent utterances
of King Leopold indicate the favor with
which German protection is regarded.
Heretofore, England has been tin guar
dian of Belgium, and has guaranteed
her independence. She will not be
likely to forcibly oppose a union, pro
vided the people of Belgium desired it,
but such addition to German territory
would be obnoxious to both Franco
and England. In case of a general
European struggle, the German policy
would bo to march an army of occupa
tion into Belgium, and take possession,
following tho Russian example iu 1870,
when she insisted upon a change in tho
treaty of Paris. In the event of a ces
sation of hostilities, and peace between
Russia and Turkey, Bismarck w ill cither
have to postpone the realization of his
ambition or else accomplish it by purely
peaceful negotiations. The tone of King
Leopold s remarks indicate that ho is

Whereas, It appears from the recora
of the mint that the total coinage of the
silver dollar has been $8,01:3,838; and
Wiikheas. The silver dollar of the
United States has long been absolutely
obsolete as any substantial part of the
money of the country, and that which
had been so coined was almost entirely
converted into other forms of metal,

any of tho existing loans of the United

their interests favorably, it will never

Whereas, Differing from a transac
tion of affairs between private persons,
public creditors have no means of en
forcing tho payment of their loans, it is
a duty of the highest obligation on the
part of the United States to pay it
debt in such a manner as to meet the
expectations of its creditors, and to re
frain from taking advantage of the
cheapness of silver by reviving other
obsolete coins, or obsolete or repealed
coinago laws, in order to provide for
payment in silver.
Whereas, The substantial present
value of silver in a -dollar of 412
grains being only 02 per centum of the
value of a dollar gold, it would also be
unjust for tho law making power bv
new legislation to compel nil private
creditors to receive from their debtors
such silver dollar in payment of pre-ex
isting ilcbts and equally unjust and even
more cruel to compel tho great number
of citizens of the united States who
subsist on tho wages of their daily labor
to receive payment for their work in
money, either depreciated or debased.
A Mysterious Aiiair.
On last Saturday morning, Mr. D. G.
Leonard, tho proprietor of the bridge
property at the lower crossing of John
Day river, in this county, was found
lying in bed at his heme, in an uncon
scious condition, with a hole in his
head near the right temple, supposed
to huvo been made with a bullet from a
small pistol. The house was full of peo
ple at the time and yet uo ono heard
the discharge of any lire-amis or any
other unusual distui banco Dr. Logan
has been in attendance on the wounded
man, but, we learn, has little hope of
his recovery, although our last tidings
were that he was some better. At the
last term of tho district court, Mr.
Leonard commenced suit for a divorce
from his wife, and it seems they have
not lived very happily together for some
time. Under these circumstances she
has been arrested on suspicion of hav
ing committed the deed and brought to
town by Sheriff Cros.scn and lodged in
jail. Her examination is set for to-day
when probably something moro may bo
learned in relation to thio mysterious
affair. Dalles Mou n ta'.n eer.
Tho following are tho votes iu the
Senate which are relied upon to furnish
the twenty-six votes necessary to sus
tain the President's veto of tho silver
bill: Twelve from New England, two
from New York, two from Delaware, one
from Maryland (Dennis), ono from
Georgia ( LTill ), ono from Mississippi
(Lamar), ono from Michigan (Chris
tiancy), one from California (Sargent),
and ono from Oregon (Mitchell). These
tweuty-two votes are.considered certain.
The remaining four votes are looked for
from the following six, classed as doubt
ful: Booth of California, Windom of
Minnesota, Eustis of Louisiana, Chaffee
of Colorado, Paddock of Nebraska and
Grover of Oregon. It is also hoped that
the moral effect of the President's veto
will give it one or two additional votes.
Fish Ccxtche. The California Fish
Commission state in their report that a
quarter of a million of Sacramento sal

about two years ago, and next summer
will probably be found in Pyramid Lake,

Since its organization the Commission
has placed in the streams of this State
8,350,000 young salmon. From 6,000,
