ASTORIA. OREGON:
D. C. IRELAND Editor.
THURSDAY. Nov. 15, 1877
Reception to Colonel Miller.
A large number of the leading citi
zens of Astoria last evening tendered
Col. M. F. Miller, of the 4th artil
lery, a reception at the Occident hotel
m this city, as an evidence of appre
ciation of his services as an officer in
the campaign against the Indian Jo
seph, and the hostile savages in Idaho
and Montana, and as a testimonial of
the respect in which Col. Miller is
held by his fellow citizens of Clatsop
county.
It is not often that people assemble
on occasions of this kind with more
sincerity than the people of Astoria
were assembled last evening. It is
very rare that the recipient of such
evidences of public appreciation are
more deserving. But few men in the
army of the United States have earned
a more meritorious record than Col.
L P. Miller. The lot of a soldier,
bearing arms in the defense of his
country is at best a severe one, but
when we follow Col. Miller and his
gallant commander Gen. Howard, and
the brave boys forming the rank and
file through an inhospitable mountain
region, such as they have passed over,
with the obstacles placed in their way
for want of proper equipments, for
want of funds not appropriated by
Congress, and consider the enemy they
have had to contend with, then glance
at the achievements accomplished, as
in the case of this march after a sav
age and hostile foe, history fails to
produce a parallel, and the welcome
tendered to the principals, not forget
ting the subordinates, is due to them
from an appreciative people.
We have not the time to take up the
causes which lead to the outbreak
which called Col. Miller from his
quiet home to the battle-field in those
mountain gorges, nor to follow up in
detail the blood-stained engagements,
forced marches, and unprecedented
privations which they were compelled
to accept, but it is sufficient to say
that the object sought to be attained
was finally accomplished in spite of all
obstacles, and the heroes of this march,
which must, in future, outshine the
famous march through Georgia, have
returned to their homes and have been
warmly received by their friends who
never forgot them during all their te
dious trials. It is true that many a
brave soldier who formed that rank
and file, together with many officers
of distinction, have not returned,
but sleep the sleep that knows
no waking, having succumbed to
the enemy and gone to "the undis
covered country from whose bourne no
traveler returns." Col. Miller's
company was the only one that suffered
material loss, of all those who went
from tbis immediate vicinity, and this
was in that ever memorable engage
ment, the battle of Clearwater, July
11, 1877, in which private Montando
was killed, and four others, sergeant
Peter Bloomberg, corporals Eugene
McPhilmore and Thomas Burns and
private George Graham were wound
ed. As Gen. Howard stated at the
time of liis reception in Portland, a
few evenings since: "Our successful
battle of the Clearwater, July 11th
and 12th drove the hostile NezPcrces
out 'of Idaho. It did much more; it
quieted the restless among the Cay
nses, the Columbia renegades, the
Spokanes, the Ccenr d'Alenes, San
Poels and others, and forced the ad
mission, heretofore denied and too
often scouted by Indians, of a "United
States jurisdiction." Yet the result
was dearly purchased.
It was not alone at the battle of the
Clearwater that Col. Miller earned
distinction. At all times, calmly,
coolly self-nossessed, he was one of
those' relied upon when reliance was
a possession to be prized in any man,
and hence it is that we refer with
'pleasure to this well-merited tribute
paictfto him last .evening at the Occf
enthotel in Astoria.
TVc regret to be informed that Cpi..
Miller is under orders transfe'rrinij
him from this department! th nu
merous otktars we shall jpari from him
m. i , - -, mjmm
reluctantly, but we realize that it will
perhaps be better for him, and we but
reflect the viewB of all who bear, any
acquaintance with him wlien we say
that we wish him health and prosperity
wherever he may go, and should it
be his lot to again join us here, we
hope to be amongst those who will
stand ready to greet and welcome his
return.
NEWS OF THE MORNING.
Congress proposes to adjourn on
the22d.
The naval deficiency bill has pass
ed the house.
The New York Times exposes the
silver swindle. And the entire article
is telegraphed over the country.
The American trade dollar is con
siderably undervalued at ports where
a declared value has been assigned to
it by the Chinese government.
The Senate finance committee
has agreed to hear a delegation of New
York bankers on the subject of the
house bill for the remonetization of
silver. Can't the Portland board of
trade send on a delegation, also.
Ex-United States marshal Shaff
enburger of Colorado, who has been in
the Kansas penitentiary the past eight
months for robbing the United States
government of $40,000, was pardoned
by President Hayes last Saturday.
Oregon Leather Interests.
The one article of leather alone will
illustrate the constant drain upon the
pockets of our people. That wc can
make a good article is apparent from
the fact that Oregon leather took the
premium at the Centennial exhibition
in Philadelphia. The Standard is
glad to hear, from good authority, that
a number of the most energetic busi
ness men in Portland are to form a
joint stock company, the business of
which will be to engage in the manu
facture of the various kinds of leather
most needed by the people of Oregon,
Idaho and Washington territories.
The public generally is not aware of
the magnitude of our importations of
leather from California. It is estima
ted that this year, thus far, it has
reached the sum of one-third of a
million of dollars. We have an inex
haustible supply of tanning material
and the finest hides in the world,
which are, by a narrow-minded policy,
grabbed up by speculatora .and shipped
to San Francisco, and the east. A
large percentage of them are worked
up there and returned, in most cases,
in very indifferent leather, because, as
a general thing, the California tanners,
leather dealers, and merchants, send
us their poorest and retain the best
for home consumption. Where the
energetic business men of our sister
state realize so handsomely from the
investment, there must be consider
ably more to the Oregon manufac
turers. If the dealers in Oregon would
all act honestly and give the home
product a fair test.
Cleopatra's Needle is now "in
soak" in Spain, a Spanish sailor hav
ing picked it up somewhere on the
west coast of Spain and towed it into
port at Ferrol. The Spanish skipper
refuses to let it go without a big re
ward from the contractor who was to
convey it from Egypt to England, and
the salvage is so high that the con
tractor thinks he'd better let the darn
needle be.
