FRIDAY... JULY Sr 1SK
Latest wws from Washington
indicates still more hopeful condi
tion of the President. Surgeon
General Barnes, heretofore skepti
cal, now admits the probability of
a happy result.
The Portland Daily Standard
has been sold to T. A. Sutherland
and C. J. Christie. Mr. Noltner
will continue the Weekly Stan
dard. A Los Angeles paper notes the
arrival there of quite a number of
immigrants from France this year.
A jrood class of settlers for south
Boston is going ahead with her
project for a worlds fair in 1SS5.
R. M. Pulsifier. of the Herald,

There are now over a hundred
inmates in the hospital for the in
sane at Stcilacoom and an inciease
of the number of wardens will
soon be required.
Portland has been having aie
ligious upheaval, under the minis
trations of JJe. Mr. Jlallenback,
an enthusiastic and very successful
Gov. Newell, of Washington
territory, actuated by a deire to
retrench government expenses and
escape the dust and heat incident
to the bricks and mortar of a city,
lias removed the eecutiveofliceto
the capitol building, Olympia.
The world seems to have sud
denly loosened its crazy people.
Three have been arrested in Wash
ington within a few days, two of
whom were aimed. One said he
had come to kill Blaine, the other
said he had a icvelation to kill
1:1 the Star route cases when
congress passed the appropriations
for the expedited routes, it relieved
the officials from legal lesponsi
bility. The com Is cannot inquire
into the :icb of ofiieiuk after con
giess, by special legislation, has
given them its approval.
There has been a sharp advance
in the price of lumber in jan
Francisco. The increased demand
from Mexico, South America, China
and Japan, has accelerated building
material. Lumber which last year
sold for 18 per thousand is now
quoted at 25, and that which sold
for $27, now rates at oo and $33.
Sir. Joshua Mason, who died in
England recently, began life as a
street-hawker, lie afterward be
came a great steel-pen manufac
turer. He was almost entirely
seif-educated. In 18G0 he estab
lished an orphanage, where 500
children were gratuitously clothed,
fed and educated. lie expended
300,000 upon the foundation of
this institution. lie was knighted
in 1S72 for his munificence. In
1880 he endowed tho Mason science
college to the amount of nearlv a
quarter of a million pounds ster
ling. Twenty million pounds of oleo
margarine "were made in New
York during 1SS0. Almost any
thing in the form of tallow can be
worked up. Most of it is supposed
to go to Europe, though consider
able is disposed of in this country.
The dairy interest has been already
injured to the extent of a third of
its vale, and the possibilities of
the production of oleomargarine
are immense, much exceeding
those of genuine buttei. The
states should compel the impure
article to go under its own name,
and not allow it to be sold as butter.
The Seattle Post, referritig to
the visit of Prof. Hilgard, says
that in company with a number of
scientists he is making an extended
geological survey ol the mineral
and coal bearing district of Wash
ington territoiy west of the Cas
cade range, giving special study
and investigation to that part of
the district lying in the immediate
vicinity of Puyallup valley and
Carbon hill. The professor has
been happily facilitated in his ex
pedition through the kindness of
the Oregon Railway and Naviga
tion company, and as these rich
fields are known to be interesting
chapters in the great book of
nature, it is hoped our learned
visitors will favor the public with
the result of their labors.
Uoin Pedro, of Brazil, a few
years ago extended his journey to
this country and portions of Eu
rope in search of information.
Recently he has been devoting his
leisure time to studying the affairs
of his own empire. He made a
trip through the provinces of Par
ana and Minas Geraes. What he
saw could not have been consoling
to his national pride, nor near so
entertaining as the spectacles he
witnessed abroad. The Jlio News
reminds him of this, frankly but
sadly. It sa3's: Let the prov
inces be contrasted with their con
dition forty years ago when Dom
Pedro ascended the throne. The
News then adds:
lie must have everywheie seen
deserted villages, crumbling walls
and grass-grown streets, the ruins
of a prosperous era which has been
succeeded by apathy, stagnation
and decay during forty jTears of
profound peace. I his period has,
it is true, seen the population
double, aud foreign commerce in
crease nearly twenty-fold. It has
seen railroads and telegraphs con
structed, and a few leading cities
enter upon the possession of all
the benefits of a high civilization.
But at the same time industry has
been narrowed into a very few
channels; foreign commerce has
passed into the hands of strangers
who absorb the profits, and neither
the political position of the Nation
nor the Emperors personal renown
can obscure the manifold signs of
The News assigns causes for
this decadence in what follews:
The blight of slavery rests upon
the productive industries of the
entire Nation, and it must be re
moved. The wasteful and repress
ive system of bureaucratic govern
ment, centering in the imperial
capital, weighs upon the political
and industrial development of the
whole empire, and it also must be
changed. Many opportunities
have been lost in these 40 years to
reform these evils and to build up
this empire on a more substantial
and lasting foundation, and the
empire h:is undoubtedly lost many
an opportunity to take a higher
rank among the nations of the
world. The evils have now out
grown any casual opportunity to
crush them, and their results are
apparent to even eye. It is not
any easy task to retrace ones
steps and to begin ones work
anew, but from that there is now
Brazilians should copy from
Mexico, and make a bid for Ameri
can enterprise aud capital to open
up their country. It has many
advantages to offer, but they must
be offered in such a way as to be
come an inducement. When the
emperor and his people come to a
realizing sense of this fact, the'
will act upon the suggestion, and
have the satisfaction of seeing
Brazil enter at once upon a new
career of prosperity.
Star lloute Pruning.
Is Postmaster-Gen. James pur
suing a wise policy? We hope so,
says, the Alta, but we confess that
sometimes we are inclined to think
that he is allured into too much
pruning by the hope of winning
fame as a reformer. He is show
ing how much money he is saving
to the government, but he must
also show that it is a genuine sav
ing, not a mere withholding of
service. AVc find in some of our
exchanges certain complaints about
his economical work, the truth of
which deserves inquiry. It is not
well to sing too loudly the praises
of this system of reduction, until
all sides are heard from. If it be
true that it is founded on a plan
of depriving border settlements of
adequate mails, it is unwise and
unjust. If this be not true, we
will all join in Mr. James praise.
The Alta says:
All good citizens will rejoice
over all the economies that the
Postmaster-general is able to in
troduce into the administration of
the postal service, provided that
the items of expense which he may
cut off are really in excess of the
needs of the country. If he can
make the service self-sustaining
without depriving any of the set
tlements of reasonable accommo
dations, he will deserve high com
mendation. It is very questionable,
however, whether an' man can do
this. An3' pruning of mail con
tracts which will lessen the eflicien
cy of the service is objectionable,
and, if attempted, should be pre
vented by congress as soon as
the new session begins. The gov
ernment has no right to expect all
the border routes to pay expenses.
The sparsely-settled territories
have a right to adequate mail ser
vice, and must not be deprived of
it in order to make a reputation
for anybody as an economizer.
If there has been any fraud in
mail contracts on Star or other
routes, try the guilty parties and
send them to prison. If routes
have been improperly extended,
remedy the wreng: but do this
carefully, and make no blunders, 1
and impose no hardships on the
border settlers. "While the Post-' -master-General
is about his buM-'
ness, let him also inquire whether J ;
there has not been needless wnte .
of public money in sustaining fast "
mail service bctwen New Vorkl
and other cities, for the purpose of,
gaining a few hours in the delivery I
of letters and papers. The country
at large docs not desire to pay for
such luxuries. If there is money ,
to throw away, expend it on ex- j
tending the service in the far west.
Gen. Judson Kilpatrick has

his duties as Minister to Chile.
Shanghai has a schenn for an
