-TUESDAY Nov. 6. 1877
General 0. 0. Howard.
General Howard will return to his
home in Oregon on the next trip of
.the Geo. "W. Elder, arriving here prob
ably about Sunday next. The citi
zens of Portland are meanwhile per
fecting arrangements for a reception
to be tendered him.
Gen. Howard has earned such a tes
timonial of respect as this will be at
the hands $f his fellow townsmen, and
we only wish that Astorians could join
in the movement.
Not long since we published a dis
patch from Chicago stating in sub
stance that Gen. Howard having either
personally or through an officer given
out, without consent or knowledge, a
report made by himself to General
Sheridan concerning the Nez Perces
war, which at least gave a more flat
tering account of his share in the hos
tilities than was given by other reports,
and the Tribune having published that
report, General Sheridan called atten
tion to an old order which makes such
action a misdemeanor, punishable by
dismissal, and intimated that upon a
repetition of such ofiense this punish
ment will be visited upon the offender
The order was issued by Gen. Sher
idan on the 25th of October, from
military headquarters, Division of the
Missouri, at Chicago. It is presumed
the order was called out by the con
duct of an officer on General Howard's
staff, who, immediately upon his arri
val in, ChicagOjhurried to the Tribune
with a copy of his chief's report, to
gether with a rose-colored account of
the campaign against the Ncz Perces
from the start in Idaho to the surren
der at Pear Paw mountain. General
Sheridan, to whom the report was ad
dressed, and not an officer who hap
pens to be in Chicago for a dajr, was
the proper person to say whether the
report w;ts worthy of publication or
In conversation with with a reporter
Gen. Howard said: "I have had much
to grieve me. The government has
seen fit to rob me of a large sum of
money, and I have been too poor to
prosecute my claims, and my country
men have seen fit to heap nothing but
abuse upon me. They seem to have
arraigned me before the country as
some sort of a politician. The only
politics I have is to be loyal to my
government. I have been blamed for
writing for newspapers. I have never
written a line for self-laudation or no
toriety. I have written articles for
money, in order that I might put shoes
upon the feet of my children. I don't
know why I should be so abused and
maligned, but I suppose it will be
kept up until I am dead, and after I
am gone I hope that my children at
least, if nobody else does, will be able
to see what good, if any, was in me."

--Forest Grove is overstocked
Farmers in the vicinity of Scholl's
ferry have sowed considerable fall

them for the time being.

Business was never more prosper

that none need apply.
Cornelius is picking up. The
price paid for grain there is $1.12 for
wheat and 45 tnts for white oats,
four car loads are shipped daily, alio
some potatoes are being shipped from
Diphtheria is still raging on the
Tualatin. John Jacob, "W. W. Gra
ham and Mrs. Catherine Graham are
reported to have it and the latter is
said to have it seriously.
A. S. Watt has purchased Mr.
Richardson's farm in Cedar canyon
five miles northeast of Forest Grove,
containing 160 acres, price 1,500, a
good bargain. ,
G. Grfter, of Oregon city, has star
ted a logging camp on the Tualatin
just below Taylor's bridge. He has
purchased the timber, one hundred
acres of land, paying $4 per acre.
Col. Hogg has departed for Eu
rope. His last words were, "I think
the Yaqnina bay railroad is a fixed
fact, and no mistake. " We wish the
Colonel a- properous and pleasant trip.

Several families are leaving Wash
ington county for Spokane. Several
young men of Scholl's ferry acting up
on the advice of Horace Greeley to ' go
west" are going to Spokane, because
they can't get any farther west with
out crossing the Pacific ocean.
The Warm Spring Indians, who
came down to the valley to pick hops,
have all gone home with the exception
of six families. Two of these are liv
ing in Peoria, Charley Pitt and .Tom
Palmer, and four are grubbing for Mc
Ilree brothers. They are good hands
at any kind of work.
Messrs. Gibbs, Dennison and
Beebe have formed a copartnership
for the practice of law, in Portland.
The senior members of the firm are
very favorable known throughout Ore
gon and Washington territory, and
Mr. Beebe is a young man who has a
well established reputation.
--The report circulated throughout
the state that large quantities of
wheat near Halsey were destroyed by
early rains, is incorrect, as a very few
hundred bushels would cover all losses.
There is 100,000 bushels of wheat in
the warehouses at present, which is
much less than half the quantity of
that staple received during the season.
The Halsey city government is an
unquestionable success, and the splen
did new sidewalks and street improve
ments generally, warrant this asser
tion. In fact, to make a brief summing-up
of Halsey, it is a way up place
for life, business, energy, benevolence,
good old-fashioned sociability, pretty
girls, and all the pleasant surround
ings for a happy home.
The New Northwest correctly re
marks that the assiduity and industry
displayed by the Bee reporters in un
earthing scandal, and detailing the
same to their readers, renders that pa
per unfit for family perusal. Fancy a
father or mother reading aloud from
its columns at the family dinner-table,
or by the light of the parlor lamp, on
almost any evening last week.
The college boys at Forest Grove
have an interesting debating society.
Last week the question for discussion
was: Resolved, 'That European pow
ers should put an end to the eastern
war." The Independent says it was dis
cussed in an interesting and profitable
manner. Pointed and telling addresses
were made in the affirmative by N.
Davis, S. R. Stott and J. T. Whalley,
which were opposed by able and well
arranged speeches made by N. McCoy,
H. Lyman and W. N. Barrett. The
vice president, G. W. Coplin, occupy"
ing the chair, gave the decision in fav
or of the affirmative.
Mr. Davis, who lives about two
miles north of Forest Grove raised
this season about 2,000 pounds of
grapes on a half acre of ground from
which he' will realize $150.00. The
grapes are of excellent quality said to
be better than California grapes. Mr.
D. raised thirty bushels of wheat to
the acre and a good many potatoes.
He will realize from his crops about
$700.00, which is pretty good for a
piece of hill land which sold a few
years ago fo $.25 per acre. Mr.
Long, who formerly hed on the land
could not Kafc a support; This place
