We hear considerable specula
tion concerning the intentions of
railroad managers, that may not
be worth noting, but as the public
likes to bo informed of all such
current gossip we will sum up the
floating talk for what it is worth.
Hon. A. L. Williams, of Kansas,
attorney for the Union Pacific and
Oregon Short Line railroads, has
been in this city attending to the
incorporation of an Oregon com
pany, so that they can build rail
roads in this State. The local
board are D. P. Thompson, M. S.
Burrell, Ellis G. Hughes and B. J.
Pengra, who are organized merely
to comply with the laws of our
State. Mr. Wiliams was inter
viewed and announced that his
company intend not only to meet
the 0. R. & N. Co. at Baker City,
as agreed between the companies,
but also to put a road through
either to the Columbia and down
that river to Portland, or else push
west from Boise City, cross the
Blue mountains, and enter this
valley by the Santiam pass of the
Cascades. He plainly says that
such work is conditioned on
whether Villard pushes his road
east through Idaho and Wyoming
from Baker City; in which case
the Short Line must return the
compliment by coming to Port
land. It is pretty safe to conclude
that the respective managers will
come to a mutual understanding
not to interfere with each other's
plans, and that the Union Pacific
Short Line will end at Baker City.
There is also a rumor that the
Central Pacific magnates, in pur
suance of their scheme to transfer
Oregon wheat, via Southern Pa
cific road to the Gulf of Mexico,
and thence to Europe, are negoti
ating for the purchase of tho Ore
gon and California roadand control
of all the lines in the Villamette
valley. It is apparently to the
interest of our .producers that the
company should own the route
from here to the Gulf of Mexico,
if it is possible to carry our wheat
by that route. "Without knowing
anything authoritative, we should
say that the scheme is reasonable
on the facof it, but will hardly
be carried out except as a com
promise between the Villard com
bination and the Central Pacifio
men, to prevent the latter building
independent roads into Oregon
and take away both the wheat of
this valley and the surplus of
eastern Washington and Oregon.
Four great corporations are inter
ested in the trade of this North
west region, the Northern Pacific,
0- R. & N. Co., Union Pacific and
Centeral Pacific, and whoever ex
pects they will be apt to antagon
ize each other may as well abandon
that idea, for it is only good busi
ness sense for them to compromise
matters, so that each will have
distinct interests that tho others
will not encroach upon, and as all
seem to have abundant means at
command it is not safe for one to
neglect the claims of another.
What the Oregon Pacific will
amount to remain to bo seen. If
it really comes into the field with
immense capital at command, and
determined to claim a share of this
trade, we shall look.for some com
promise rather than that the pro
ducing class will have the benefit
of competition and low freights.
Men who swing tens of millions of
capital are not apt to throw it
away in fighting other capital.
The usual way with railroads is to
harmonize their interests in some
way or other, and us that is only
common sense, in a business point
of view, we cannot blanio railroad
men and need not foster any
sanguine hopes of good to result
to the producer from competition.
We make these suggestions as
to railroad policy with perfect con
fidence that the future will bear
them out, and what we have dished
up has only been the railroad
gossip of tho hour. Willamette,
Wnat SnaU the Future Bo?
The policy heretofore pursued
by the people of Oregon has been
one of impoverishment rather than
of building up. Wheat and wool
have been sent abroad to purchase
needed supplies. We send our
wool three thousand miles to be
then worked up into ready-made
clothing to be again freighted
three thousand miles back to us.
Our beef hides are shipped in the
same way, and wo get our boots
and shoes from the East, Thus
our producers and consumers are
made to pay heavy freights to and
from the States, while the products
of our State are necessarily re
stricted to such articles as can bo
shipped over long routes and
heavy expense, thus greatly limit
ing the source of income and nar
rowing the channel of profitable
employment. The time is at hand
when this condition of things
should be changed. If new enter
prises are not to be inaugurated, if
the present system is to be con
tinued, then the clamor for moie
immigration is only for accelerated
exhaustion. Our soils are fast be
ing exhausted, and the grasses fed
off so that our wheat crops must
decrease and our wool gradually
fail, while our needs will not in
any sense diminish. Wc must de
vise means for utilizing our natu
ral advantages; we must manufac
ture :i portion of our wool and fur
nish our homo market with all
needed woolen goods, and the
same is true of all articles manu
factured from leather, iron and
wood; in other words, wc should
become pre-eminently a manufac
turing people Daily Statesman.
Old Style-New Style.
Theexact length of a year is
365: days, lacking about eleven
minutes. In correcting the calen
dar, nenrly 2000 j-ears ago, Julius
Cassar reckoned it at exactly7 3C5
days, and made over' fourth year
consist of 3GG days. This is an
excess of 45 minutes in four years;
and this error being discovered,
Pope Gregory XIII. ordained an
other correction to take place in
1582. He ordered that the dates
should be altered so that tho fixed
feasts of the church, should take
the dates they would have had if
there had been no error from the
time of the Council of Nice, A. D.
325. Tho error amounted to ten
days so Christmas day, 1582, was
celebrated on the loth of Decem
ber, but it was called asbefore, the
25th that is, ten days were omit
ted. England did not adopt this
change until 1752; it was ordered
that the third day of February
should be called the fourteenth,
thus omitting eleven days. Wash
ington was born February -11,
1732, O. S.; to adjust it to new
style, his birthday is put on the
22d, for the day that would have
been on the 11th of February
would that year and thereafter be
called the 22d.
Another change was alto made
in Britain and her colonies with
the new style. The Ijeginntng of
the year was changed from tho
25th of March to the 1st of Janu
ary, so that 1751 lost its January,
February and twenty-four days of
March, and they were counted as
the first part of the year 1752, now
style, or the last part of 1751, old
style, and so with any date previ
ous to March 25th, if given in new
style and old style, the year will
" Russia has not yet made the
change, aud now the error is twelve '
days, so that they in Rutsia cele-
urate Christmas twelve nays after
the other European countries.
Pennsylvania is still at the head
of the states, producing iron ore,
I her yield being it little more than
one fourth of the whole product,
but Michigan is pressing closely.
Of the totai product of the Uni-
ted States in the census year 27i
per cent came from -Pennsylvania
mines, and 2o per cent from
Michigan, and Michigan actually
headed the list in value of product.
There were sixteen states produc
ing iron ore in 1870; there are now
twenty-three; the number of em

During the month of November,
oI,58G immigrants came to our
shores, against 37,598 saute time
in 1880. Germany heads the list
with a contribution of 10,000 souls;
next comes an inflow from Canada
of 8,800. England aud Wales
sends us fi,S23, ami Ireland figures
up 3,284. During the five months
ending with November, 100,470
came from Germany, the total for
that period from all countries
being 291,318, showing that more j
than one-third were Germans.
