OREGO.X CUT, THURSDAY JLLY 25. 1878.
The Time-Honored Democracy.
We Lave oftcu been admonished to
"pity the sorrows of the blind," and
the pitiable and forlorn condition of the
Democracy now-a-tlays calls up this
choice aphorism, and awakens a degree
of commiseration in our breasts which
it ould seem almost impossible to con
jure up in the lamentable wreck which
has happened to the argonautic voy
agers who started oft to pillage lle
pnblicanism of its Golden Fleece, and
dangle it in the belt of the Democracy,
bat which unfortunately only succeeded
in capturing the immortal Captain of
the horse marines and his wife the
Jeokses, a capture, which, owing to the
nnamiablo and termagantic nature of
the female- Jenks, they were fain to
drop like a hot potato, happier to return
to port empty-handed and encounter
the jeers of the spectators, rather than
to parade such insignificant rubbish in
lien of the high game they were after.
Never has there such a high tragedy
performance so terminated in comedy.
It is like the rendition of Hamlet by
George, the Count Joannes, or of an ex
position of the secret of perennial
youth, by George Francis Train.
The Potter Committee thought sure
ly that John Sherman, Noyes, Mat
thews, and about all the visit
ing statesmen wero wriggling by the
gills in their fish-net, and pos
sibly the "accidental incumbent;" how
intense and appalling, therefore, must
have been their disappointment, when
at the drag of the net, there came forth
instead Mrs. Jenks, principally, but
the dwarfed and insignificant figure of
Ler husband alongside, and, as if to
tantalize those almost driven to the
verge of desperation, Mrs. Jinks did
not cower before the "frowning provi
dence" of the Potter commission, but
looked them boldly in the eyo, laughed
them to scorn, and was as playful and
entrancing as a mermaid or a water
nymph, and whose Circean charms
almost won the committee away from
their love of Democracy. The investi
gation, although a farce, has resulted in
laying the ghost of fraud, which the
Democracy have so sedulously charged
to our account. It is true we had hard
work to overcome the assaults made on
"Weber,Andorson,L.evissee and others of
that ilk, by the plentiful offers of money
made to them by the Democrats to over
come their virtue, and in which they
would have succeeded, had it not been
for the strategy of Mrs. Jenks (as she
avers) . The trace of Democratic at
tempt at fraud and corruption is ap
parent all through the net-work of chi
canery, and skullduggery wh'ch envel
oped their conduct from Oregon to
Loaisiana and Florida. Grover had
plenty of counterparts of rascality in
others of his ilk in the South, guided
by the luminariesjof Gramarcy Place,
and the spectacle of the double dyed
villians of that party attempting to fas
ten guilt on honest Repnblicsns is met
with the presto change, which,
instead, gibbets the names of promi
nent Democrats, and turns the guns in
tended for the enemy into the party
camp, and knocks the equipage of the
party machine into smithereens. The
virtue of the Republic does not wholly
belong to the Democracy, and about all
the latent rascality does.
A LctcI Vass Across the Cascades.
Scott and Atkinson must have im
pressed the idea on the X. P. IS. IS. Co.
that it is necessary, in order to success
fully blackmail Oregon, to start a sur
Teyiug expedition across tho Cascades
to discover a perfectly " practicable
route across the mountains," and so
give tho Columbia river the " go-by;"
accordingly the great bias cockalorum
Chief Engineer Milliner Roberts has
been sent all the way from Boston to
pilot tho discovery party, and they
leave Tacoma shortly for that purpose.
Of course they will make an important
revelation that the Cascade mountains
exist in imagination only; that it is
comparatively level, and a railroad can
be built across it almost by "wind,"
and then if the Oregon Legislature will
not exempt them from taxation, and
give them a subsidy of two or three
millicn dollar, -we shall have t! e
dire consequences hashed np to us:
how the Oregonian will be removed
to Tacoma, gras3 will grow in Port
land's streets, and Bro. Atkinson's con
gregation go to tho devil, but he will
go to the terminus, where the snort of
the overland locomotive around those
fir stumps of his will raise their value
at the rate of a dollar per hour. Fare
well to Scott, whose oleagenous pres
ence shall exist as a " fleshly incubus "
to scare Judpe Deady into compliance
with his demands no moro. He will
gorge that cavernous paunch of
his hereafter on the clams, crabs
and mussels of Pnget sound,
and the "Willamette valley will
no longer be called upon to furnish
him subsistence. It means famine
prices for our farm products, stagna
tion in business, and universal ruin;
and all because of Mitchell's persistent
demands in the interests of Oregon,
and blindness in not acceding to their
present demands for blackmail.
Judge Choate of one of the New York
Courts decided a few days ago that a
Chinamen cannot be naturalized under
the laws of the United States. The
Judge stated, in giving his decision,
.which was upon the application of a
Mongolian who had lived in New York
twenty-eight years, that he was guided
by the action of Judge Sawyer of "San
Francisco in the Ah Ynp case, in which
rK bel" t,.,at a. Chinaman was in
eligible to citizenship because he wa3
not a white person or a negro, the Con
stitutional amendment the African race
not admitting any other than such, and
wiutoa who were already eligible.
Oregon is not behind California! in
tho growth of a hoodlum element iu
our midst, which is continually becom
ing more lawless and aggressive. One
desperate deed is the incentive and
stimulus for another "more daring and
reckless, until the youthfnl offenders !
become educated np to the condition of
a desxerado, and ready for any deeds of
outlawry, regardless of consequences.
Much, if not all his, is directly trace
able to tho want of parental authority
and control; and the father or mother
have more to answer for at the bar of
judgment than the child. Tho bitter
chalice will bo visited to their own lips
for the want of tho proper and natural
instinct which ought to incite every pa
rent to bring np thoir children in the
way the' should go. They owo this
not only to themselves, but the com
munity. Tno turning loose of a cut
throat on a community ought to be
canse for tho indictment of tho princi
pal malefactor the parent. Ho should
bo made to sulfur for the burden and
expense of a drone on society, rather
than that tho State should have the bur
den of the scape-grace on its hands for
the final judication. As the commence
ment for reform, we would advise every
parent to go through the person of
their hopefuls, and if they discover
among the effects a plug of tobacco, a
pipe, a pack of cards, a pistol, a dirk,
or a slung-shot, they may be suro the
foundation for the genus hoodlum has
been laid, or carried to final perfection.
The remedy in most cases, would bo
an introduction into the back yard, and
a half-hour's application of a clap-board
persisted in until tho signs cease. Of
course, not ono in forty to whom thoso
presents are sent greeting, will take our
advice, but even if so many will obey
our injunction, there will bo rejoicing
in Heaven at the hope of one hoodlum
saved, or put on the road to reforma
tion. The wild boy of twenty years
ago was very different from his proto
type of to-day. His highest.rflight of
audacity never transcended the robbery
of a hen-roost or ater-melon patch, or
the changing of signs or olevating
wagons to church steeple3. Ho was not
a drunken, obscene braggart, flaunting
his wickedness in the faco and eyes of
the community, but pursued his evil
intent ic a furtive and clandestine man
ner, and never beyond tho reach of
final repentance and reform. Civilizing
influences finally made a mau of him,
but the modern hoodlum is unscathed
by such a happy reform; he goes from
bad to worse; nothing short of the pen
itentiary orHhe halter causes him to
stop short in his reckless career, and to
turn possibly in lime to save himself
from the inevitable. We very sadly
need a.reformatory school a State in
stitution for juvenile offenders, and
which would do 'more towards regene
rating the hoodlum, and checking tho
hoodlum tendency than anything we
can mention, except energetic parental
control. The coming Legislator who
will devise puch a law, and clothe it
with the proper function to gather in
lawless Arabs of our land for reforma
tory control, should be ranked along
with Itobt. Ilaikes, the founder of the
Sunday-school, as a philanthropist do-
serving of high honor and reward. We
call upon some ono in our Clackamas
delegation to formulate such a law mod-"
eled after tho style of the reformatory
institution ot San Francisco. Have it
located at Oregon City if possible, as
our bluff will furnish abundance of
building stone for the genus to work
out, and there is no danger of tho stone

Tho Standard man, not wishing to
give a fair statement of our article on
Restrictive Legislation for fares and
freights, attempts to throw mud at an
imaginative editor of the Enterprise,
who is rolling inwcalth acquired through
excessive transportation charges, but
who now being satiated, wants to"pre
vent any one else from doing likewise.
The rich man of the Standard article is
a myth, and exists only in imagination;
but the reasons why the avariciou3ness
of the O. S. N. Co. should be curtailed
and limited by law to fares and freights
no higher than is charged by the O. &
C. R. R. Co., whose investment for an
equal distance of transportation line is
ten times greater than the O. S. N. Co.s,
is a live, patent and vital aotuality, and
as such, ought to be treated by the
Standard man with the importance it
deserves. The influence of the Stand
ard and Oregonian, however, is directed
as allies of the O. S. N. Co., and not a
ray of light through their in
strumentality, shall be made
to illumino tho benighted minds
of their readers. When they
want figures, the Oregonian get3 Bro.
Atkinson to launch out two columns of
statistics on matter as foreign to tho
vital interest of the country as the
Saint's Rest is to a Thug, and coming
from such a source, operates as a seda
tive on the minds of its readers, and
they go to sleep with the thought that
as long as Bro. Atkinson is at the helm,
he will care for thoir imper
iled interests. We believe the
influence of tho Standard, Oregonian,
and O. S. N. Co. combined, cannot be
cloud the minds of our Legislators, as
to tho necessity of restrictive legislation
and the benefits that will accrue to the
upper country by it enforcement.
Whoever votes against a proposition to
restrain the present unbridled license
of the O, S; N. Co. will be found to
have the money of that corporation,
present or prospective, in his pocket.

The Turk Kedivhus.
The European difficulty has been
patched up at Berlin, where, uuder the
direction of Prince Bismarck, Turkey
was pretty well carved up for the bene
fit of Prussia; Austria, Greece and the
little principalities formerly sub-
the Sultan; so that what
is left of Turkey m Lurope, is
a scope of country no langer than
Washington Territory, with a pop
ulation of six millions. We believe
that the Turk cut loose from the dis
cordant and jangling elements that
hung on his frontier, while the faction
ists and religious fanatics of all shades
made the whole Empire a pandemo
nium, will now enter on a brighter ca
reer of prosperity and peace. The
Mussulman is not the cut-throat adverse
religionists would make him out to be,
and his inclination went in the direc
tion of bettering the condition of his
subjects, but tho task is just as difficult
for a Mahomedan to rule over Chris
tians as it would be for one of a sect
of Christians to attempt to domineer
over tho rest of the sects in our laud.
The Turk still holds the throttle valve
of Western Europe in the possession of
tho Dardanelles. It is the grandest
strategic position in the world, and Rus
sia would give half of her empire for its
possession. She hr.s made a vast stride
toward it, but will now, that there is so
little remaining, receive prompt check
mate from England in any future at
tempt against the integrity of what is
left. Indeed England acquires tho
Island of Cyprus from Turkey, with
tho definitely annonnced policy in
view to resist any further encroachment
of Russia; so the sick man, with Eng
land for a wet-nurse, will take another
long now lease of life, and the depart
ure of the Mussulman from the soil of
Europe is a matter that will agitate the
statesmen of tho twentieth century, as
it has the four or five preceding it. Tho
Crescent yet flaunts its black shadow
athwart the standard of the Cross,
and tho call of the muezzin from the
minareta of the mosque yet is heard in
the land which gave birth to the author
and diviner of tho Christian faith a
religion which antagonizes the Moham
edan in almost every essential particu
lar, but both of which have love, charity
and fellowship for the foundation stone.
It would not bo strange if, in tho courts
of the hereafter, there should be found,

Christian, a Mahoniedau, a Budhist
and a heathen, each as bethought him.

Between now and the 1st of January,
says the N. Y. Times, some sixteen mil
lions of "standard dollars" may be ad
ded to the seven millions already lying
in the Treasury vanlts. The iiso of the
minted silver in payment of silver bul
lion cannot check tho irresistible gravi
tation of the Standard dollar toward the
National money-chest. The seller of
silver bullion, of course, takes his dol
lar to the only profitable market ho can
find -tho importer, who can use them
in payment of dnlios. Tho greater
tho number of them which como into
the market in this way or what is

by their deposit tho moro slender will

the Treasury. When the premium on
legal tenders disappears, even that mar
ket will be closed to tho "standard dol
lar," and tho Treasury will bo compelled
to use it for the payment of current ex
penses, or for the redemption of bonds.
It will then and then only be ready to
play the part in damaging public credit,
and driving gold out of the country,
which its opponents marked out for it,
and for which the fanatics and dema
gogues who were responsible for its
creation should be held to a very strict
In the form of an interview with the
Washington correspondent of the N.
Y. Times, Senator Windom gives a very
able and convincing exposure of the
hollowness of the Democratic pretense
of retrenchment in National expendi-
ptur69. The appropriations of this year
aggregate twenty-eight millions and
three-quarters more than those of the
closing session of the last Congress,
and the test of actual experience will
show that the average expenditures for
1875 and 1S76, provided for by the late
Republican Congress, were some ten
millions less than the average already
established by this Congress. The
boasted saving of forty millions is
shown to have been nearly wiped out
by over thirty millions of deficiencies,
and under Senator Windom's trenchant
and careful analysis, the whole fabric of
Democratic "economy" falls to pieces.
He defends the Senate against the charge
of aiding and abetting the extravagance
of the House, and proves, at least, that
the extravagant appropriations for which
the Senate was responsible were for
purposes decidedly moro important
than those on which the House pro
posed to waste millions of public

UNIVERSITr OF CALIFORNIA,
The whole Upper Columbia Country
is in a Stato of turmoil and agitation,
caused by a want of systematic treat
ment of the Indian uprising. There
are thousands of peaceably inclined In
dians in that section who aro looked

by the whites, and whose suspi
cion, and want of confidence estranges
them from each other, and will ulti
mately result in driving them into
contest with the whites. Unfortunate
ly there is an element among the white
population that is willing to foment
trouble, and plunge the whole country
in general war into order that they may
depredate on the Indians possessions,
both of lands and stock, and it would
not be amiss to turn a part of General
Howard's armanent against this class of
whites as well as at tho hostile savages.
Every friendly Indian in this emergency
should be made to feel that his position
is appreciated, and he should be court
ed rather than scorned; for a general
ujrising of the Indians of the;; Upper
Columbia means tho wiping out of the
dawn of civilization just emerging from
the twilight there,2 .and a return to
darkness, desolation, murder and strife
for years to come. We say tho insult
and abuse 'of well disposed Indians
is leading to this result. The Sunday
schpol warrior,Capt. Wilkinson, patrols
the Columbia; and seeing Indians driv
ing cattle and horses across the river,
without inquiry as to whom theyare.and
what their object is, fires into them and
commences a wholesale slaughter of an
imals. If the fool had used ordinary
precaution and inquiry'he might easily
have ascertained that they wero friend
ly IndianC endeavoring to get their
stock awayj from the expected hostile
invasion. Major Kress was guilty of the
same imbecility, and we presume some
champions will be found ;to ask for
their promotion, on the ground of their
daring fight with Indian ponies the
brave Captain with his whiskers, who
successfully vanquished a band of In
dian ponies. So, too, a volunteer cap
tain in Idaho sneaks upon some Nez
Perce scouts, who, with their white
friends, aro sitting about a camp-fire in
civilized dress, and kills two of them
before the lunatic can be made to un
derstand that thoy aro friends, and not
foes. Tho Umatillas, whoso interest
and inclinations are all with the whites,
aro treated almost as enemies, although
they have done the most efficient fight
ing against the hostilos so far. Moses
and his band are continually maligned,
their motives disparaged, and their
action misconstrued, and, while wish
ing to be friendly, and protesting a
good heart, all tho while is made tho
victim of suspicion and mistrust by tho
very whites whose essential interest it
is to keep them friendly. So, too, the
foolish scare of the Oak Grove settlers
was, and is, calculated to create a mis
trust of tho Warm Springs Indians,
whose tum-tum has never wavered in
affection for the whites; and nothing
will drive them to opposition against
the whites but continued insult aud
contumely. Tho Indians of tho Upper
Colutub'a know to a man that ultimate
death and destruction is their inherit
ance for aggressive waifarcagainst the
whites; and consequently tho most
powerful motive is at work day aud
uight to make'tliem friendly, but if he
sees that his protestations aro without
avail, and that ho is to bo killod any
way, desperation makes him do what
any other person w ith a spark of man
hood in his bosom would under similar
circumstances turn against his in
tended murderers. Now it must be re
membered that thcro aro whites in
tho Indian country who have been nursed
in the idea that it is the duty of an
Indian to die, and they can see no dif
ference between a friend and a foe, if
he is of a swarthy cast, and it will bo a
miracle if their outlawry does not re
sult in a general uprising. Wo have re
cited wrongs done to every friendly
tribe already; continue them, and the
Indian, in a last general uprising, will
go down to death doing all the damage
possible, and, obeying the divine in
junction, will take "an eyo for eye, and
a tooth for a tooth " until the final
quietus; who but would do the same
thing under the same circumstances ?
Wo say, therefore, that it is the im
mediate duty of the military to enroll
all friendly Indians, clothe them in
uniform and put them under liberal
pay to resist the advance of allhostiles.
Bestow confidence on them, confide in
them, trust them to do their duty.
They know that the fiat i3 sure that
resistance to the pale faces means a
hunting to death, and the motive to re
tain their lands and flocks, to raise their
families, and to avoid hunger, thirst,
persecution, outlawry and death, makes
his incentives incline to peace with the
whites. It is easy to hold him as an
ally, but all the steps so far havo been
directed to make him an enemy. Court
martial should await the pony-warriors
whom we have mentioned, and death
the Idaho Captain. We should teach
the Indian that we hold the lives of our
friends at the same value, be they white
or red. Let the next unprincipled cus3
who foments a scare without reason, bo
tarred and feathered, and sent out of
the country. It will save thousands of
dollars in money value to thus head off
unnecessary alarm. For a neighbor
hood or community to flee en masse,
ard leave their homes, barns, crops and
stock open to spoliation, invites pil
lage, and we believe an unprincipled
white could be found every time to
match a villainous Indian in a raid for
pillage through an exposed and aban
doned district, so similar aro the in
stincts of tho depraved. Let it be re-1
membered that there are other fiends j
and cut-throat3 besides Indians. I
