iiisrlit House at Tillamook Head.
The Chamber of Commerce has
received a letter from Colonel Gil
lespie, stating that it has been de
termined to build the light-house
on the rock in front of the head
and about one mile from shore,
should it be found practicable. An
examination of the rock "will be
made as soon as the weather per
mits. The rock is probably the est
point in some respects, although
Sight may not be seen so far at
sea. If a cable is laid to shore
and made to connect with a line to
Astoria, vessels may come in, with
out an' danger, to a short distance
of the rocks and receive tkeir or-
clcrs Dy means ol signal Hags.
Tliis could not be clone so well I

arum tuu uuiiu, un mu snure.
It will be remembered that on the
iirst organi'aton of the Chamber
of Commerce the necessities of
this light were shown in a very
urgent appeal to Congress. Tliat
Congress listened to our1 appeal
and appropriated seventy-five thou
sand dollars for the work, is cer
tainly a matter of which our cham
ber can well be proud. It does
jiot particularly concern us wlietlter
the luyht-house is built on the head
or on the rock. X is -enough to
know that it will soon be built.
Thanks to our C J amber and our
.members in Congress.
A 3ritisli Subject.
There s a general wir i0i?cbs
on this side of the Canada lne to
regard Sitting Bull as a 33riiish
subject. He is a little troublesome
"by nature, and is desirable 1o find
someone to hold responsible for ls
misdeeds. INo principle of intei
national Jaw is better established
than that subjeCuS of one na on
may not fit out hostile exped'tlons
nga'nst nations with wl ch their
government is a-t peace. IT they
do, their government is jesj)o sib'e,

Canada, and deliberately prepares
for a raid into the Uiri: d S. tcs.
Our irovernment notifies -Grc t
Britain that her subject :s mak"
threats, and asks tnat he be boj"fl
over to keep tie peace. Probably
-the British government w'll direct
he Canadian authorises to exer
cise due precaution to prevent hos
tile expeditions being organized
on Canadian soil. The usages of
civilized government will doubt
less be regarded by Sitting Bull
as an invasion of the invinoie
riarhts of the noble red men.
The president seems to have
loomed up into considerable im
portance with certam stalwart re
pubcans in congress, who have
