"We breathe easier, as we bad hazard
ed the opinion several times repeated,
that the N. P. It. R. survey would un
doubtedly blazon a report of finding
a practicable ronto over tho Cascade
mountains by tbo Cowlitz, or some
other never before beard of pass. We
bad been anxiously scanning the col
umns of its chief ojgau tho Oregonian,
for its first announcement, as it is tho
bonnden duty of this lusty wet nnrso to
herald the birth of the discovery to a
vaiting world, and a feeling of disap
pointment becran to settle in somber
clouds over us that we saw it not; but
what was our joy and felicitation on
happening to alight on philoeophor
Picket's paper of Tacoma, of tho edi
tion of Aug 22d, 4o find a two-column
article, partly editorial, but mostly ro
portorial, from the pen of Samuel
Black, managing agent of tho N. P. R.
R. Co., -with headquarters at Tacoma,
who bulletins to the world the won Jer
ful announcement wo had been antici
pating, in which, eureka ! and astonish
ing to relate, tbo lost is found. They
have discovered that there is a feasible
loxito over the Cascades, with an up
ward grade of but 45 feet to the mile
most ot the way, and but a very little to
exceed GO feet, for a small fraction of
the distanco,. and this,, taken in connec
tion with tho circumstance that tho
Pennsylvania Central climbs a grade of
10G feet to the mile oyer the Allegha-
nies, is taken as flattering unction that
it is an astonishingly easy grade They
ostabliah the actual altitude by a course
pf reasoning in which a poor unfortu
nate civil engineer, who is absent or
dead, is presumed to be a liar, and
compel their instruments to certify to
tho assertion in ordor to substantiate
This is such a feat of legerdemain in
spired by the selfish motives of the N.
P. R. R. Co. that there should bo no
Epecial wonderment at the claim that
ongineer Tilton, who made the first
several surveys, of tho passes of the
Cascades, mado an error of at least one
thousand feet in the actual altitude of
the Cowlitz pass making it greater
by that amount than it actually is.
We thought toe Boston Milliner, Rob
erts, could forget the furbelows of the
Ilnb and do a little practical work, but
he has gotten so fur-below Tilton that
we pass him over to the tender mercies
of the Duniway crew. However, jest
ing aside, these sacrilegious liars and
falsifiers of the dead Tilton discover
their ghoul-liko qualities to the world,
thus to rob an eminent engineer of the
merit that should attach to faithful ser
vice and ordinary accuracy.
Enginoer Tilton was known and re
garded on this coast a3 at tho head of
his profession, but thus to stigmatize
his work would make him out to bo a
dolt and an ignoramus of the most ig
noblo kind. The only surprising thing
to our mind, however, is, that our fat
friend, Scotty of the Oregonian, has
failed to note this wonderful discovery.
Wo hope our touching mention of the
guess several times iterated, that he
would bo the first to horald tho glad
tidings to brother Atkinson and the
balance of the Tacoma land ring will
not deter him to do that which not only
his position of leading journalist, but
also leading panderer, should prompt
-h im. Do not refrain from doing what a
naturally sycophantic nature joins to
the function of a paid toady in urging
publication becauso wo have suggested
that you would, and your roaders have
own posed their nerves for its appoar
anoa. The game of the N. P. R. R. Ring
has thus far devclopod. In order to
pull some string not now obvious, they
have organized a surveying party for
the express purpoeo to herald a possible
poM, whether there is one or not. This
they have found by bald falsification,
which remember, and then wait for the
next development which will come to
the surface before long; but also re
member that a dozen railroads across
the Cascade mountains cannot affect tho
bulk of tho freight carriage from the
Columbia river, and so retain a reason
bla composure when their thunder-bolt
Inasmuch as none bnt a paid lackoy
of the N. P. R. R. Co., or a fool (wo
speak this reverently having Scott and
Bro. Atkinson in our mind's eye) can
claim that tho terms exacted of that
pompany in Senator Mitchell's exten
sion bill is objectionable in any view to
the interests of Orogon, or of tho mass
es generally, we claim that it is not
only tho right, but tho bonnden duty of
the coming Legislature to memorialize
their representatives in Washington at
the next session of Congress to formu
late present, and urge for passage,
the forfeiture of tho Northern Pacific
land gragt in the event of their further
refusal to accede to the provisions of
Mitchell's bill. Tho Legislature of
Oregon owes this much to Senator
Mitchell for his sturdy and indomitable
fight for the people of Oregon, and
the ayengement for tho broken faith of
these land-sharks and adventurers
should come from the delegation whose
State they have betrayed and menaced.
Although tho law allowing country
postmasters a commission upon the
salo of postage stamps has been repeal
ed only six weeks, the effect is already
noticeable on the sales at the city office.
Tho sales have largely, increased, and
the revenue to the Governmeet is, of
course, larger. Under the old law. the
greater tho sales at the small offices,
the greater the loss to the Treasury.
The Legislative session will soon be
ovoluted upon us, and there is very
much to do in the way of legislation to
correct the present evils of the law,
and to enforce the people's sovereignty in
matters which requires their attention,
not now asserted. The Assessment Law
needs amendment for the purpose of
exacting a more minute and systo&iatic
statement from the taxpayer; the maxi
mum of fares and freights should be
established to the end that isolated
communities shall not be pirated upon,
where now in the clutches of monopo
ly. Tho present evasion in taxes by
toreign money -loaners should be at
once attended to and made to. apply on
this years assessment; the Corporation
Laws are a botch, and should be amend
ed to be made intelligible, and closer up
to the spirit of the age; tho Salmon Fish
ery bill introduced in tho last session
should be enaoted, which being similar
to that in Washington Territory, would
give tio promise of lasting permanence
to the fishery business; the pilotage
law should be amended and ratef'cheap
ened, bo that every possible impediment
may bo removed which tends to restrict
the shipping interests; it should bo our
aim to so legislate as to make our own
a cheaper and more desirable port'than
San Francisco, which would do more to
attract sliipnincr hither than all the
other motors which ever moved a ship
owner in the world; Foreign, as well
as homo insuranco companies, should
bo made to return a proportion of their
gross receipts into tha Treasury in lieu
of taxes. At loast a million dollars is
paid annually for insurance in Oregon,
which eroes into foreign coffers, and
pays substantially nothing for tho priv
The Locks company now pass their
own boats through the locks without
charge, thus cheating tho school fund,
and making tho more onerous the bur
den of their competitors, and while
under their charter a minimum of rates
cannot be fixed by legislation, they
should be required to servo all alike,
and if they choose to say one set of boats
shall go free, that their rates should be
uniform for all. It would be as well to
abolish the separate commission and
invest the same authority in the Gov
ernor, Secretary of State and
State Treasurer, without extra pay
simply retaining a becretary at the
locks to report the transactions of the
Besides these important matters there
are others quite as necessary, but those
of greater- magnitude we have only
room to mention. We should liko to
see these matters pushed early in the
session rather than that all should come
to its close in a jumble, as is usually
Particular care should bo taken not

sharpers are always after lamblike con
cessions to individual interests: but
they generally cover a huge nigger in
the fence, whose chief characteristic is
self-aggrandizement. There never was
a bettor opportunity for a legislator to
distinguish himself and make a name
for posterity than tho proscnt affords,
and we hope to see all emulous of their
good names, and careful to take high
ground in tho interest of the general
good. We have indicated legislation
enough in tho eight measures we have
cited to array fifty million dollars com
bined capital against them, and. yet
there is not one of the proposed sug
gestions but what are in the interest,

In "Practical cooking and dinner-giving"
we have the following roceipt to
cook a rcod-bird:
"Cut a sweet potatoe lengthwise,
scoop out a placq that will fit half the

tying the two pieces of potatoes around
each of them. Bake them and sorve

hard fate to be crammed inside of a
sweet votatoe, but ho had no business
to be small. Tho salt must bo used of
course to catch him, but just why but
ter and pepper am necessary we are un
able to say. We should have preferred
Scotch snuff instead. Wo would not
recommend 1i is boiliug in lard either,
as he is so very lean and dry that he
would take an indescribable amount,
just as a sponge absorbs water, and it
would be lost in the transformation
when he 'comes out done brown.

A Husband's Reverie.
After the first sigh of relief which
pervades the soul as the old woman and
seven children disappear behind the
hill on their Summer tour, comes the
balm of heavenly enjoyment to the ho
half; the winged hours will noSv glide
him through realms of ecstacy, and
heavenly bliss, without the harrassing
cares of family affairs on his overbur
dened mind. Would he sleep? A sum
mer afternoon siesta is his, and slum
ber lulls the languor of every day ex
perience. Would he smoke? Those
eternal carpets and window cu. as,
even if they do catch the effluvia, will
not complain. Would he drink? Then
drown caro and submerge grief in a
drnnken bachanal with no broom
stick or upbraiding in the back-
ground; the house is yours, and
you are noto monarch of all you
survey. IIow exultant is the heart, and
the blood seems to gurgitate in riotous
chase through the veins as the thought
of absoluto freedom electrifies its pul
sations. No more will tho dauntless
eye, which never shrank its duty on the
battle-field, waver before the stern
pierciug inflexible glance of the "old
gal;" no more will legs, which like
those of the Psalms, are "pillars cf
beauty," quake with agued inconstancy
when directed by the woman who has
sworn to obey you only; you emerge
from the bitterness of the gall of bond
ago as tho caravan disappears from
view, and the sunlight of freedom opens
out to you as freely as the sun
burst in a St. Patrick's proces
sion.' Theso thoughts and more,
revolvo through the mind as the
first convulsivo gush of grief is as
suaged, and the rising tear evaporated
by the timo the better half dissolves in
the distance; and then yon rise' "by
stepping-stones of your dead self to
other things:" Manhood once more
asserts itself; tho vigor of earlier years
return; the pulse becomes more regu
lar, and your first duty seems to be to
eat; tho cupboard is searched, and then
a pang at woman's inconstancy shoots
through the mind as tho destitute con
dition of tho cooked eatables show
forth. Why, by the great Jehosephatl
has she not left some bread, some cake?
neither is there "applo-sass" to appease
the ordinary cravings of tho human
anatomy. Is this leathery pie and sal-
eratus-biscuit all that a fond wife leaves
to a broken-hearted husband, while she
junkets through the land and makes her
relatives oiler up yellow-legged chick
ens at tho shrine of her omnivorous ap
petite, a.s if she were a Methodist min
iater? IIow truly, and how often hath

however, awaken a yearning ana a
longing for the old hen and chickens
that seems insupportable: in the silent
watches of tho night, when nothing but
the lonesome and monotonous ticking

We have heard a circumstance as to
Scott's frugality which is worth record
ing: Some timo during the campaign
a gentleman in Oregon City, every way
able to handle the subject, who is not a
Mitchell man, but who, nevertheless,
wa.s unable to discern wherein any of
tho conditions of the N. P. R. R. time
extension, as proposed by Senator
Mitchell, in any way seemed unreason
able or unjust, addressed o respectful
letter to this high priest of the Orego
nif. in which ho cited the fact that a
great deal of clamor had been raised by
himself and Bro. Atkinson against the
Mitchell "terms," so called, without
specifying which ones were especially
objectionable, and calling upon him to
show wherein any one of them were
against tho interests of the people of
Oregon or of tho public in general.
This letter was sent to the editor of tho
Oregonian for publication, and nine
cents in postage stamps were enclosed
for prepayment of the return of the
letter if not published. The joke of the
whole matter is that Scott basketed tho
articlo and pocketed the nine cents.
The smallness of tho contribution must
have reminded hira of tho time when ho
"passed the hat," announcing that
small contributions were thankfully re
ceived. Refreshing incidents of this
kind send a tidal wave of earlier emo
tions over impressible beings, and Scott
must have wept at its remembrance as
he cabbaged the postage stamps.

The American of the Future.
Okegon Cixt, Or. , Aug. 21th , 1878.
Editor Extebpbise: By permitting
the following sentiments to appear in
the columns of your much admired pa
per you will confer a favor upon one
whose sole object is the enlightenment
of his fellow workmen:
Tho continual agitation in one form
or another which has shaken the politi
cal, social and commercial fabrics of
this country o late years must have a j
sequel in the near future, whether the
results attained will be beneficial or
otherwise.it is premature to predict;
but one fact is evident to all right-
thinking men that there must De a
change yea, a radical change in tho
political and social elements of our
people. To take a comprehensive view
of the subject, let us discuss the three
elements jn rotation, viz, Political, so
cial and commercial:
What is our political standard as a
nation to-day ? Will it bear a close in
vestigation? Are we proud of our past
record for the past quarter of a cen
tury? I fear not. It ia not necessary
to take in the whole country for an il
lustration: one will far better under
stand the question at issue to introduce
a little of local politics. What are the
class of people that generally form tho
rings of the respective political parties
in our towns, and cities? Are they men
of irreproachable character, men of
temperate habits, men of enterprise and
business, men who havo the interest,
welfare and prosperity of the communi
nity at heart? I fail to find the slight
est excuse for thinking so. Even local
administrations have drifted into the
same channel that runs through the en
tire administrative system of the coun
try, which is worked to tho benefit of
polltail bummers. It is impossible to
class this set of politicians under any
other head, as they are the only means,
and the willing, servile tools by which
even a pretentions honest candidate can
hope for office. You will find the po
litical unmmer in every town and city
in the Union; and to a stranger, it is for
some time a mystery how these men eke
out an existence for tho support of
themselves and family. The political
bummer 13 seldom poorly clad; has al
ways a clean white shirt, ornamented
more or less with tho adornments of
the age; a plug hat, with the invincible
staff dangling on his arm; his face
cleanlv shaved, and waxed moustache,
makes him a figure that always demands
your attention, either from the ridicu
lousness of his dress, or tho insolent
affability of his manner. He must bo,
from tho very nature of his role, a con
spicuous character. During the dull
times, when there is no electioneering
on hand, you can always find him
walking around tho saloons on tho look-
ont for a stray drink, and is always tho
walking bulletin of tho latest scandal,
and invariably the originator. Ask
any ono of his acquaintances what vo
cation he follows, and they will answer
you: "He is a politician a pohti
cian, hear in mind: Hero is a mau who
has never filled a local or Government
position in his life; lives on tho fat of
tho land; has no visiblo means of sub
sistence other than ho is a politician.
What a terrible parody on our boa-itod
intelligence and suffragos. What a pic
ture or political debauchery and cor
ruption to be held up to tho supposed
trampled and tyranized subjects of
other Jands less free. It is from this
source, this ynoilus operandi of conduct
ing our elections, that life is given to
the roots ot the great devouring Upas
tree of political America. Purge tho
local atmosphero of theso foul drones.
and then you will accomplish a civil
service reform that will cast in tho
shade the famous edict of President
Hayes, by its brightness and purity.
Some timo ago I became acquainted
with a candidate for a county-treasure
ship. At the time of his nomination
he owned a seemingly remunerative
store of general merchandise. I was
surprised when this man declared his
intontions of selling out in the event of
his being elected. " My dear fellow,"
said he to me one day, " if I only suc
ceed in getting olocted, I will bo nicely
fixed at the end of my term." I knew
at the same timo that do was spending a
largo amount of money among the
political myrmidons that always cluster
around a candidate for offico, and was
aware that tho office was worth legiti
mately only 1,500 a year for throe
years. At the least calculation, this
man spent pver a ' thousand dollars to
procure his election, which ho nlti
marely did accomplish.
Now what conclusion can be drawn
from the above? Can any other be
drawn than that the whole political sys
tem of our country is rotten to the
core? This is nothing new: every
reader of tho Enterprise is cognizant
of similar cases.
The money spent so freely daring
election times, and the numerous gift3
and jircsents so lavishly bestowed on
communities are simply baits of joliti
cal speculators, to be wrung back a
hundred fold in taxation and monopoly
laws by these soft-soaping politicians.
I cannot say that I endorse tho plat
form of the Workingnien of California;
but this much I will say: that tho Pa
cific States are indebted to Kearney and
his followers for unearthing some of
the mpst villainous and daring schemes
ever projected to rob and impoverish
tho country that was ever conceived by
the worst class of political speculators
that ever tarnished, the reputation of
any country. It is unnecessary to
enumerate tho cases, as they are too
fresh in the minds of the readers of
your valuable paper. Already those
exposures are bearing fruit, as was seen
in tho last State convention election in
California; but we have yet to learn
what role the new party will play now,
that they are to a certain measure in
power. Let U3 hope that they will
prove true to the thousands of honest
voters who entrusted them with their
suffrages, and that they will inaugurate
a new era in the political arena, and
that their main and sole object will bo
the amelioration of the lower classes,
and the reduction and equalization of
taxation. May this, their first incep
tion, prove the death-knell to political
bummers and treasury pilferers. When
this will be inaugurated then will com
mence tho foundation for a free and un
adulterated local and general adminis
tration. (To be continued. J
The -Washington Constitutional
Happening at Oak Point last week we
made the acquaintance of Alexander
Abernethey, whom we found to be a gen
tleman of extensive erudition and ge
nialty, and who, as President of the
Constitutional Convention of Washing
ton Territory, did much to formulate a
constitution abreast of the intelligence
of the age, On account of this, and be
cause in tho measure of equity between
man and man, it gave no preference, it
meots with the decided opposition of all
tho corporations and money powers in
the Territory. It prohibits the giving of
special privileges, and thus incurs their
enmity. It provides that the Legisla
ture shall from time to time affirm a
maximum of fares and freights over
transportation routes in accord with the
decision of the courts, and decrees that
they shall be regarded in the law as
common carriers, and tho railroad in
terests are hostile. It provides for the
taxation of sectarian properties, and
the church becomes militant against it.
It trenches on the muniments of mon
opoly and monied autocracy, andjbrings
all to a common level before the law,
which is the very essence of Republi
canism, and as such deserves the sup
port of every honest citizen in tho Ter
ritory. On account of its attack on
the assumed rights of the few it
meets with their powerful opposition,
and there docs not teem to bo a
newspaper in tho Territory but whose
independence is powerfully shaken
with the gift of a icomplimentary pass
over a railroad or steamboat route, and
thus unfortunately the people are left
without an earnest exponent of the im
partial symmetry of the new constitu
tion. Unless some advocate rises up to
acquaint the masses with its true
adaptability to the wants of that Terri
tory, it will unquestionably be voted
down, as its opponents are earnest
against it, owi&g to theexactitudo which
levels them. They will array every
vote which money and influence can
command against it. Tho silence of
the Washington Territory press as to
the merit of tho proposed constitution
does not mean apathy, but rather dur
ess, nnder tho fear or favor of the mon
eyed powers. If the people aro alive to
their interests they will vote en masse
for tho body of the Constitution, but
we anticipate a contrary result, owing
to the want of organs to acquaint them
with its beneficial intendments.
