Harbor of Refuge Again.
The absurdity -f locating the har
bor of refuge so fur south ai Port Or
ford where there are no storms, is
srell shown by studying the war de
partment weather map for the month
of March of this year. By this map
it is shown that eleven storms arose
on the Pacific coast during the month
and passed eastward!'. Of that num
ber only oiic touched the const so far
south as Port Orford and that one
first appeared south of San Francisco.
This corresponds with the experience
of our pilots who have been traveling
up and down the coast for the past
Senator Windom, who has studied
the race problem more than auy other
public man, in an interview with a
tribune correspondent said that the
negro exodus originated wholly
among the negroes themselves and was
not inspired or stimulated by outside
influences. Jt was a touching and
powerful protest against oppression
and wrong, a spontaneous outburst of
despair from a down-trodden people,
whose condition has become intoler
able. For years in some parts of the
south they have been under a despot
ism more relentless and cruel than
was ever endured by any free people,
while they were entitled to the right
and privileges or American citizens
they had been persecuted, flogged,
murdered, driven from their homes
and subjected to the most inhuman
treatment. Under such circumstances
it w:is not strange that they left
homes which afforded them no present
security or hope. Political oppres
sion alone did not, perhaps accomplish
this, but after they had been defraud
ed of the results of their labor, deprived
of the chace to earn a living, and
threatened with practical slavery, the
untried plains of the great west could
have few terrors they would not pre
fer to their condition in the cotton
states. The desire as expressed in
many letters to the senator from all
parts of the south was to get away to
some place where their lives, liberty
and property will be secure and their
constitutional rights respected. The
feeling, though more intense in those
localities where the persecutions and
oppressions had been greatest, was
wide-spread and was daily becoming
stronger and more determined. The
exodus might prove detrimental to
the industrial interests of the south,
but its ultimate results will be advan
tageous, and it would lessen the south
ern nightmare of negro rule. With
a removal of this fear the color line
would disappear, the negro would
become an important factor in southern
politics, and there would be a restor
ation of peace and order. In conclu
hion, the senator thought the exodus
would do more towards removing
sectionalism from national politics
than any other means ever proposed.
He regarded it as a jirovidentnl solu
tion of the problem which had bafiljd
the wisest of American statesmen.
England's Trade With China.
A special cable dispatch from Lor
don states that England is be
coming as anxious about the decrease
of her foreign trade as she is about
the depression existing in her home
manufacturing industries. Indeed, the
one is the result of the other, for her
prosperity has been built up entirely
on her trade with her colonies and
with foreign countries. China, before
the advent of Americans there, was
one of England's best markets for her
cotton and woolen soods, but now
British manufacturers admit that
American enterprise and opposition
have almost driven them "out of that
part of the world." That our mer
chants and manufacturers have beaten
the English in China is the result not
only of a commercial morality, proved
to have been so lamentably deficient
among the Manchester manufacturers,
but of England's politico-commercial
policy, wjiich has ever been offensive
For the sake of making a poiot
against the proposed California con-!
stitution, the San Francisco Alta, in a
few words, tells more truth about this
country than it has published before
during all its career of thirty years.
It says: ''Oregon has the capacity to
accommodate ten times as many in
habitants as ehe receives, if thev are
j only able and willing to hew a fortune
out of her fertile Valleys, her inex
haustible forests, her incomparable
i fisheries, or her unexplored mineral
.deposits. Oregon has a constitution.
Her laws are equitable, stable and
constant. She is not to be lmv
( beaten by the threats of an unin
formed, irresponsible rabble. Califor
nia's extremity appears to be Oregon's
opportunity at this moment. Oregon
has placed herself on record as a con
servative, peace-preserving, property-
protecting community; and, while we J
deplore California's present loss, we
rejoice that it is our nearest neigh
bor's gain." The adoption of that
new constitution will drive millions of
money, etc., into Oregon, besides!
thousands of splendid business niuii
such as we need.
