The Silverton Appeal aivus the
Standard article, raking Win. Reid,
a preferred column on the 23d.
The Greeks have for 200 years
had a monoply of the trade in dried
currants in the London market.
"We shall not be the least bit sur
prised to hear that the order has
been issued, within a few weeks;
to begin railroad building to As
toria. Tlie da' is not so far dis
tant as it was last week.
Portland is now clearing her
lower docks for the coining Hood.
The wheat etc., on the upper
docks will also have to be moved
soon. Astoria is the only safe
place for storing wheat and flour
The credit of Melbourne stands
high. The corporation had occa
sion recently to place a loan of
25,000. The rate of interest was
fixed at four and one-half percent,
and the entire loan was taken by
one bank at i'102. Not many
American cities could negotiate a
loan on such easy terms.
"We understand that the Central
Pacific railway company have
closed charter for two large steam
ers to carry Oregon wheat from
Astoria direct to Wilmington after
harvest. The same authority,
which is reliable, says they are
negotiating for a western Oregon
narrow gauge railway, which the'
will push through to Astoria.
At New Tacoma recently, Judge
Green ruled that a note calling for
compound interest in case of de
fault could not be collected by
law as far as interest on interest
was concerned. In cases where
the promise to pay compound
interest is made after the interest
has accrued and where there is a
sufficient consideration, the collec
tion may be enforced.
For thirty years the poor, down
trodden subjects of the Mormon
presthood of Utah have been an
nually taxed to pay for the materi
al and labor expended on the pro
jected temple at Salt Ike. t is
nowhere near completion, and has
now cost 1,000,000. A Chicago
builder, looking at it the other day,
said he could get rich building
such structures at SoiHOtX) apiece.
The Louisville Courier Journal
tells a remarkable tale of a needle
which penetrated the foot of a lady
nine years ago and worked its way
upward, causing her great pain at
times. The pain disappeared some
months previous to thebiith of her
third child. That child is now a
.yeai old, and the other day the
needle which had caused its mother

truding from its thigh and was
The Walla-walla Statesman is
congratulating itself upon the hope
that all danger passed on the 221. It
says: "But few knew it yet this is the
day that has been so dreaded by the
weak minded of Christendom for a
year past; all maimer of evils, evonts
to the end of the world has been pre
dicted was to happen. The alarm
has been based upon the movements
of the planets; within twelve hours
Saturn has been in conjunction with
the sun. Jupiter lias also been in
conjunction with the sun, and Jupiter
and Saturn have themselves been in
close conjunction. If all these con
junctions mean lots of rain as has hap
pened here the last twenty-four hours,
a few more such conjunctions would
be of immense benefit to the crops."
The Walla-Walla Statesman is off
the vein. "However much the Ore
gonian may bray about Portland, we
are willing to wager that the Oregon
Railway and Navigation Company's
steamer Willamet will never reach
Portland with the 3,300 tons of freight
she left New York with. She was not
built for crossing dangerous bars, but
for deep-water ports on Puget-sound."
"What's the matter with you, Frank?
As the Wyoming miner told his wife in
describing the pay streak: Just stop
right there; you probably have the
right idea, but 3011 are using terms
decidedly incorrect. Don't drift for
the blossom rock, baled haj' and
poverty, till you strike the varicose.
Don't keep an eye cm the black

Views of Capfc J. A. Sladen, of Gen.
New York Express.
I do not think the government
schools are conferring any great
benefits upon the Indians. They
are, of course, not failures, foi
nothing which seeks amelioration
of a race can be a failure, but thej
are simply unsuccessful in attain
ing their object. It is with diffi
culty that the parents can be in
duced to part with their children,
and though they fully appreciate
the advantage of a good education,
still they seem to regard such an
action on the part of the agents as
a sort of demand for hostages, and
therefore object. Of all the good
the schools can spread, not one
iota of it influences the brave of
to-day. The children of the chiefs
and. the children of their children
may in time become units in the
great sum of American civilization,
but to expect such a thing during
the present generation is to wish
for the impossible. Of course the
reservation is a thing of the past.
No tiact of country can now be
staked ofT for the occupancy of the
Indians, and the only way to dis
pose of them is either to banish
them to Canada, kill them or scat
ter them across the continent in
townships, surrounded by the in
fluence of law and order. It will
be, I think, absolutely impossible
to bring all the tribes of Indians
and civilize the entire mass. It has
been attempted in a few minor in
stances, where three or four tribes
have been commingled, but the at
tempt has always resulted in an
utter and ridiculous failure. Each
tribe has its various customs, which
has been observed from time im
memorial, and each other tribe re
gards such customs as follies.
Hence such squabbles which would
continually occur, and which
would sometimes result in a gener
al war. If this civilization of the
Indian is to be carried out, influ
ences of single characters of worth
and integrity must be brought to
bear on the savage. Such has
been done in the cases of the
missionaries, and with signal effect.
The influence of the military posts
on the Indians surrounding them
is and has been uniformly good.
The Indians regard the post com
mandant as a great medicine, and
when he is a good man they
respect and love him. In the in
stance of Chief Joseph and General
Howard, after the chief had been
beaten he wrote to the General
and asked his advice, saving in the
body of his letter that he re
gretted not not taking his
advice before. The soldiers are
kept under control by their of
ficers, not alone for the moral of
the army, but for their own safety.
The Indians always treat the of
ficers with courtesy, and, although
they appreciate the fact that they
are in :i state of war, they never
theless regard the men with great
friendliness. The great evil done
to Indians is not produced by the
speculations and vices of the Indi
an agents as much as by the while
men who are stock-raisers and
hard cases of the frontier. The
Indian does not take kindly to
trading. lie prefers the pony as a
means of sustenance that is he
raises horses and sells them to the
border ranches, with considerable
profit; for the Indian, when he de
sires it, can be as sharp in a bar
gain as the most thorough Yankee
of the east
