An Open Highway.
"Speed the day when a steamer
may take a cargo at the foot of
the Rocky mountains and land it
at Astoria; then the farmers of
Eastern Oregon and "Washington
will not be compelled to pay half
the price their products bring to
get them to market. "We intend
to cry aloud and spare not till this
end is obtained.' So speaks the
Falls City in closing an article on
the subject of a free and open
highway from the Rocky moun
tains to the ocean. So says every
one who has the interest of the
entire commonwealth at heart, who
wishes to see this country assume
the importance to which its geo
graphical position and natural ad
vantages entitle it. When selfish
interests shall have been proved
to be such by the stern logic of
events, when petty jealousies and
.provincial carpings shall have been
demonstrated to be actuated by
unworthy motives, and long de
ferred rights shall have been con
ceded to a long suffering scope of
territory, the develepment of the
great basin of the Columbia will
go on with an impetus and power
that is to the present' as is "the
first'low rush of waves where soon
shall roll a human sea." "We shall
continue to advocate and maintain
that on account of the position and
the commercial importance of As
toria's location, wheat afloat or in
store at Astoria should sell at the
same prevailing price as wheat
afloat or in store at San Francisco,
and this principle the near future
will vivifv and make manifest.
American Bible Society.
: ; The annual meeting of the Clat
sop county Bible society, auxiliary
to the National society, will be
-held this evening in the Congre
gational church under the direction
of the district superintendent,
Rev. P. C. lfetzler, assisted by the
pastors of the several churches
Able speakers will probably dwell
on the origin and worth of the
Bible, the work of the society, and
urge its claims. The work of the
soeietv is benevolent and unde-
nomih:it Tonal. Its mission is in
'jBorsed by alii the Protestant
ilchur,ch?s, and some require the
preachers to take a collection in
each conirrei-ation for it. Thus
thev are enabled to sell all their
-publications at cost and give thou
sands oflhe copies of the Script
ures to the destitute at home and
- in heathen Jands. Last year the
society supplied over S4,0fK) desti
tute families in our own country.
The Bible is an old book parts
'. of n't' distancing any other docu
went about "500 vears and of
greaLliterary value, -which, apart
from its-divine, claims, is suflicient
- tojtwaken srreat interest in its con
tents.. Biit'lhs does not explain
Us circulation without money and
without price. IJoiner and the
Zendavesta of Zoroaster have cre
ated no organized eflint like this.
.Because men believe the Bible to
be the foundation of societ3', re"
valing the rule of life and the
way to heaven, it is sold at a
nominal price or given away.
But this also is one of the
achievements of the present cen
tury. Prior to 1 800, large portions
of professedly Protestant countries
were without the. Bible and it
could be obtained only with jrreat
difficulty and at great cost. No
Bible was published in the United
States until the close of the
" - 'revolution. It is probable that
in 1S80 there were less than
5,000,000 Bibles in all the
world, a far greater number
-j. probably than were made during
'thethirfy centuries from Moses to
Luther. But since the institution
of Bible societies in 1S04, over
1GO,000,000 copies, in whole or in
part, of the scriptures have been
scattered abroad, in 250 lano-nao-fis
.and dialects, the languages of
. four-fifths of the inhabitants of the
Assuming the correctness of the
statement of Andrew Jackson.
"That book, sir, is the rock upon
which our republic rests," how im
portant is the mission of this so
ciety, and should be sustained,
eren if we were influenced only
by patriotic motives.
The newly revised English ver
sion so eagerly sought and read is
probably creating a new epoch in
Bible history, like that by the
giving of the law on Mt. Sinai, and
the publication of tiie authorized
version in 1G11. But of this time
alone can tell.
A "Washington dispatch says
within the last few days it has be
come apparent that the Pacific
slope will ask to be represented in
President Arthur's cabinet; the
reasons are obvious. It would
seem that the interior department
is generally desired because so
much of its business relates to that
quarter. Among the names most
frequently mentioned are ex-Senator
Stewart and Senator Jones of
Nevada, Geo. C. Gorliam and ex-
Senator Booth, Cole and Sargent,
ex-Senator Mitchell, besides some
others. A Sun special states posi
tively that Jones has been offered
the secretaryship of the interior
'Tis said that one of the peculi
arities of "William Black, the Eng
lish novelist, is that he often forgets
what he has written, and, indeed,
was once heard greatly to admire
some remarks apropos of the Pru-
sians in the late Franco-Prussian
war, and could not be convinced
that they were quoted from one of
his own works until the book was
brought to him and triumphantly
displayed. In this idiosyncracy of
"William, he differs slightly from
certain editors who, after reading
an item forget that they have not
written it, but quietly appropriate
it as though it were original.
In his speech at Tacoma last
Tuesday, Villard spoke in plainer
terms than at other places. Re
ferring to the prospect of Tacoma
being a wheat shipping point, he
said: "Vou cannot expect wheat
to come here unless vou have
facilities, in the first place for stor
ing and handling it, and in the
second place capital to attract it."
That is applicable to other places
than Tacoma, and, as Cap'en Cut
tle would say, "the force of that
remark lies in the personal apph
cation of it."
The New York Republican
state convention which met last
Wednesday most emphatically ex
presed the sentiments of the ma
jority of the republican party all
over the country in its overthrow
of "the machine." Conkling ami
Co. were beaten "by a large ma
jority," and the spoils t system has
received its death blow in the Em
Tiik special session of Congress
which convenes to-morrow, will
require considerable mutual con
cession to accomplish anything.
'Tis believed that the Democrats
are willing to concede the presi
dency of the senate to the Rcpub
licans, provided they can have the
secretaryship and half of the com
Johnson and llerifl", pro

Chenowkth is now running the
Falls City as a semi-weekly.
The beer product of California
has swollen from thirteen million
gallons in 1875 to nearly twice
that number in 1S80. Fifteen
thousand five hundred bales of
hops were grown on the Pacific
coast in 1SS0.
A Kentucky girl was struck by
lightning and killed while dress
ing for her wedding, and the hard
hearted Cincinnati Enquirer says
there is such a thing as a girl be
ing too attractive.
