Ros coe Conkling, and as consistently as possible worked to influence his "ribhii nation. The contest was a bitter one, almost equal to the fierceness of strive between straight Democrats and straight Republicans, after part' nominees were placed in the field but now that it is all over with one brief incident will illustrate a the situation m Uresron. Blaine mniu meets Conking man : 11 Well, you didn't get your man did yon ?" Answer: "lse: nor did you set Blaine; did you?" 11 No; but how do you like Hayes?" 'Very well; he will do first rate ; how do you like Hayes ?" " Very well ; he will do first rate ; suits me." Summing the contest1 down to a nice point between Blaine and Conk-lingfhe-situttttofins best illustrated by a story that Jim Kavanaugh used to tell. Jim formerly lived in St. Paul, Minnesota, went to Montana and " became identified with Con gressmen" by holding a commission as delegate. On one occasion there were seven men standing on empty boxes and with ropes around their necks, under the limb of a tree, just ready to be hanged. One of them, a German, began to cry bitterly as he thought that he was about to die. Ihe man next to him was an Irish man, who was much bothered by the German's weeping. So hitching his foot to one side, gave the German's box a push, leaving him swinging in the air, and said: "Stop, you big sucker, won't you?" But the same act toppled over his own box; he could not regain his footing, and, with a laugh at the' trick he was play ing on the German, he, too, swung into eternity. Exactly so with Blaine and Conkling. In trying to kill one another off both were soon swinging into political eternity bf the toppling of their empty boxes in the Cincinnati Convention. As an individual we are satisfied with the result, as a party no doubt the Republicans of the country are better pleased as they will be more strongly united, and can make an aggressive campaign of it, instead of being on the defensive, with men like Blaine. Opposition to a good cause is cer tain to define the character of the op poser. The avaricious man sees it as a money making scheme. The sensual ist searches for, and in his imagination finds lasciviousness to lay to tke charge of whatever he opposes. What a man has been searching for may be known by what he professes to have found. To know the general tenor of a man's character, observe the form taken by his opposition. This is true, because men learn to regard their fellows with the distrust the are conscious of de serving.

Aviso Icfin. Ve are in receipt of a private letter from Sydney, Australia, May Gth, a house that deal largely in Co lumbia river salmon. The letter is one of thanks for information fur nished respecting business of the Columbia river and contains sugges tions relative to shipments, etc., valu able to factors. Shipments by direct vessels is strongly urged. The price at the above date was 85 9s to 9s 3d per dozen, according to brand, duty paid Is dozen. Barrel salmon was in good demand, with a firm market, 0 3 7s Gd per bbl duty Id per lb paid. The right proposition of ship ments would be about three half bar rels of 100 lbs each to one barrel of 200 lbs. The house to which we re fer are very largely interested in various English lines of vessels, in cluding the "Geo.' Smith &. Soil's city line of Glasgow, so many of which visited this port last year, besides being large owners themselves, and when opportunities are presented will influence business in this direc tion. The newspapers of the valley are beginning to growl like fury be cause the late combination in steam boatings have put up a big job on the producers.. We deeply sympathize with the farmer, but it would be a very fine point to discriminate which party sinches the farmers most, the middle-man and speculators in food stuffs, or the transportation compan ies. The farmer can get along verr well, if he tries, without one of them. Speaking of the late rise in freights on the Wallamet river the Sa lem Farmer says: "It puts to blush the genius of Ben Holladay. " Old Ben wasn't so very bad, after all; was he Sam? The Farmer confesses that it did not expect, so soon, to see any contingency arise that would make the memory of Ben Holladay smell sweet to the people of Oregon. The Hwaco Steam Navigation Company's steamer Varuna has been chartered by the Fisherton and Glen Ella factories to tow the fishing boats belonging there from this bay, on mornings when they are too heavily loaded to sail up, or are otherwise prevented from going homeward. The Oregon City Enterprise con gratulates the school district of that city on securing the services or Prof. "W. L. "Wbrthington as principal. We can assure our friends at Oregon City that Prof. W. is a first class teacher, and their gain is Astoria's loss. The insane man picked up on Smiths Point in a starving condition, recruited and sent to the Asylum from whence he escaped, it was sup posed, had not been there before. The question is still where did be come from, and vf ho, is he.? ' Another Relic Gone. From tho Oregon City Enterprise Por a few da3rs past we have ob served the old three-story building near the city Seminary was being dismantled and torn down. Upon inquiry we learn that this building, known as the Oregon City College, was erected in 1850 or '51. A char ter was obtained for it as the Oregon City College through the efforts of elders Hezekiah Johnson and Ezra Fisher, the first Baptist missionaries sent to Oregon, with the idea of hav ing the school for Oregon Baptists at this place. During the mining ex citement several thousand dollars were raised for this purpose, these ministers giving about all they were worth, and this building was erected. Dr. Chandler who now lies paralized at Forest Grove, was sent out to take charge of this school, after it had been temporarily conducted by Elder Fisher. Some books were sent out from the East, with a small philo sophical apparatus, and the school was started with fine prospects, con sidering the distance from ciailiza tion and the condition of this now prosperous State at that time. The school was afterward in charge of" Prof. J. D. Post for a few years, but no endowment being prvided, tho efforts to keep up the school abated. Prof. C. H. Mattoon taught a while, and perhaps one or two others, bu t the building finally fell into disuse for school purposes. It was then rented for a number of years as a dwelling, but no repairs being mat' e it became unfit for this. After that it became a resort for idle bovs who played " hooky" from school, or went there on Sundays to have a sly game 01 cards awav irom tne om folks. To prevent this misuse of tne building, W. C. Johnson, Esq., of the Board of Trustees, sold the remains for a small sum, and provided for having it torn down. In the early days a number of boys and girls, who now are strong men and women in this community, secured a portion of their education in this buildi ng, and the influences set to work there have not seen their end, though the building is torn down and destroyed. Fisher and Johnson are in their graves, and Chandler's working days are past, but the impulse they ga ve to education in Oregon will not cease with their lives, and we woul d be glad if their desire to have a Co'ilege here might vet be realized.

It was a case of mistaken identity. The man elected was named Geo. D. Mudd, and has always been known as an ardent Union man.

The funeral will take place in Portland to-morrow. Ten hardy pioneers in the settle ment of N ehaleni valley, tired of the dilatory action of the authorities, and dispairing of all outside assistance, five veeks ago took off their coats and went to work to open a road to the valley.
