October 13th, 1STT. f
We found the trip from Portland to
Walla Walla peculiarly interesting and
pleasant, from Vancouver to the
Dalles the scenery is magnificently
grand and romantic, excelling in beauty
any description our language can ex
press, or any portrayal of paint or can
vas. From the Dalles to Wallula 1G0
miles the flat desert plains of sage
brush and sands are monotonous be
yond relief, except for the grand and
lofty Mount Hood and the far distant
Blue mountains or the rushing waters
of the Columbia, whose serpentine
course we traversed through the fear
fully roaring rapids that taxed the ut
most energies of the powerful and ele
gant steamer Annie F.ixon, and right
here we will say the more we saw of
the workings of the Oregon Steam
Navigation company the more we
were impressed with the falsity of the
many criticisms of overcharges made
by the conrpany. We were fully con
vinced that they are entitled to all
their ijrofits earned by such great risk
and enterprise as could only have de
veloped the resources of this section
to its present standing.
At Wallula we found a cordial and
hearty reception for the night from a
good natured host and hostess that
made room .and comfort for the crowd
where comfort and room seemed at
firat sight to have been absorbed by
tumbledown rookeries and shanties,
the company's wharf-boat and the rai -road
track are the only indications of
thrift and prosperity at Wallula.
From Wallula to Walla Walla we
traveled over the Walla Walla and
Columbia railroad a distance of thirty-
five m'les, moderate speed is not ex
aggerating the time made, but the sar
c;istic remarks of the great profits and
economical management of the road
We found Dr. Baker a very pleasant
man to talk with and unlike many
others a much abused public benefac
tor; free to explain the many disad
vantages of conducting such an enter
prise as the road that saves to the pro
ducers 35 cents per bushel on their
grain, or (350,000) three hundred and
fifty thousand dollars per year to this
section of country, which amount he
is perfectly willing anybody else may
save for them by paying his company
back the amount they have invested.
Knowing your earnest endeavor for
the interests of eastern Oregon and
Washington, and that 3rou are interes
ted in the prospects of a road from
here to Puget sound, we think it but
fair to say that their records show an
entire export of but 9330 toii3 of
freight and an average of but pas
sengers per day for last year: an esti
mated increase of but double the
.above figures will show airy intelligent
man how preposterous the idea an out
let by Puget sound being profitable for
many years to come, and we are in
clined to agree with Dr. Baker that
the Walla Walla and Columbia rail
road and the Columbia river is the only
return from the Indian war with Jo
seph's band. They represent sixty-five
(05) men that left here hale and
hearty, and as they drag slowly by,
weary, worn and exhausted, leading
their riderless horses, we have a single
reminder of what it has cost to protect
this country to receive the coming tide
If we can make arrangements we
will send you a piece of this pure and
invigorating atmosphere, packed in a
little bright sunshine. Until then,
we are yours. r. o. lock box 350.
A Sensible Woman.
Queen Yic did n't attend the recent
banquest of the new town hall of Man
chester,and weare told that the"Bishop
commented courteously, yet severely,
upon her absence." The Bishop per
haps knew that if he was discourteous
John Brown would pounce him. His
severity was probably weakert han re
ported. This notion that the Queen,
or the lord Mayor or any other promi
nent official, must turn out in court
dress every time an invitation is ex
tended, is an exploded humbug. If
we had been in Queen Vic's place we
would not have gone to the banquet
unless we had a mind to and felt like
going. She has shown good sense.
We congratulate her.

After all, the trunk is the true
token of civilized life. When Spotted
Tail and red Cloud asked Hayes for
an overcoat and a suit of clothes, so as
to live like white men, they particu
larly added, "and a trunk to put them
in " The trunk was not given; but
among the first purchases which the
redskin made with their $30 apiece,
was a satchel for each warrior, while
some bought little trunks. The
thoughtful patriot can foresee the
day when the Sioux squaw will refuse
to break camp until herthrec Saratoga
trunks are properly packed, and when
the baggage smasher will be the terror'
of the red man ,as now of the white.
Another fire is reported in a pre

At the banquet, the Bishop oi Man

distant future and that your efforts for
the improvement of the Columbia arc

Walla Walla is a beautiful and well
watered city, located some ten or
twelve miles west of the Blue moun
tains, peopled with as courteous and
enterprising citizens as a stranger
could wish to find.
The country around about is in a
high state of cultivation, land is held
at high rates, the products arc enor

The Bee says Portland is a finan

has been blamed for making its mar
ket reports, column the pliant tool of
institutions which have controlled the
monetary; but lately one of its edito
rial statements had the right sound
on banking. "We need in this coun
try a supervision of these fradulent
institutions something like that which
it is said, is exercised in China.
There they have no bank examiner?,
but wheu a bank breaks they simply
lead the proprietors to he block;
and it is said that the last fail
ure of this sort occurred about" five
