THE JUDGE'S REMINISCENCES
At the driving of the last spike j
of the connecting- Portland road,
a few dn3's ago, Judge Dearly
We are met here to witness the
completion -of this great Oregon
enterprise, which is to put us in
railway communication with the
east and the north and the south
which is to lift us out of our long
continued isolation and place us
in the front rank of the people of
It is difficult for me to con w'
to you the impression which this
sdtne makes on me, or to reflect
the memories or emotions which
now cluster aroundmy heart.
Thirty-three years ago I floated
down this lonely but lordly river
in an Indian canoe on my way to
Oregon. I was then a youth to for
tune and to fame unknown, but not
without hope and courage for the
future. At that time the iron horse
had not climbed the AUeghanies
on his westward way, and you may
imagine how little 1 thought or
droamed of helping to drive the
hist spike in it track on the far:off
Indeed, it is not one hundred
yeais since the grand river on
whose shores we now stand, was
discovered Since Captain Gra'
stumbled in over the bar and there
by fastened upon it forever the
name of his lucky bark Colum
bia. Only three-quarters of a century
ago the government of the United
States first put forth its compara
tively feeble hand to claim this un
known shore. The spike which
eventually fastened it to the
Union, and which will never be
withdrawn, was the expedition of
Lewis and Clarke, which seventy
seven years ago floated down the
river in sight of this spot where we
now stand, and bore the stars and
stripes from the Missouri to the
Pacific. Then those rock-piled
hills first echoed the welcome
sounds of the now universal Eng-
A quarter of a century later that
gallant American soldier of French
birth. Col. Benjamin Bonneville,
explored the country, and soon
after "Washington Irving caught
the ear of the public "with the
charming narrative of his romantic
adventure. With a poetic justice
the managers of the enterprise
have perpetuated his memory by
naming the principal place on the
road in this vicinity Bonneville.
Following him forty years ago,
came the American trapper and
Twenty years ago the Oregon
Steam Navigation sprang into ex
istence and the tide of traffic and
travel turned up the stream. From
Astoria to Lcwiston the river was
plowed with the strong stern
wheels under the enterprising di
rection of Ainsworth, Thompson
But all this has passed away and
the river gives place to the rail,
and the sternwheel to the locomo
Finally we congratulate the
managers of this new enterprise.
Their names Villard, Dolph,
Prescott, Thielsen and Muir will
not only be remembered in our
cups but emblazoned on our
towns, boats, palace cars and other
monuments of art and utility. And
we trust that they will be wise and
moderate in management of the
great power and responsibility and
aim to make the public good and
their own identical. Let them fos
- ter the country which fosters them,
and putting aside all other pur
poses, be content to act only as
the' beneficent agentsbetween the
producer and consumer, and no
one will ever have occasion to re
gret this pay.
The Gray Head by the Hearth.
A private letter from a lady
who is spending the year among
peasants of the Tyrol, says: "The
morning after our arrival we were
wakened by the sound of a violin
and flutes under the window, and,
hurrying down, found the little
house adorned as for a feast: 'gar

gifts, brought by the young peo
ple whose music we had heard.
The whole neighborhood were
kinsfolk, and these gifts came from
uncles and cousins in every far-off
degree; they were simple, for the
donors were poor; knitted gloves,
a shawl, baskets of flowers, jars of
fruit, loaves of bread; but upon
all some little message of love
"Is there a bride in the house :"j
I asked of my landlord.

We remember a certain Ameri
can house of the higher class, in
which the venerable mother of the
owner had her own boudoir filled
with everything which could re
call her long checkered life pleas
antly to her in its tranquil old age.
That room was the center of the
great mansion; no guest entered
the house without desiring to pay
his respects to her, although only
the most favorable were admitted.
The effect upon the young people
who came to the house of this
marked genuine reverence for age
was incalculable for good. The
new generation is always apt to be
intolerant of those who are. leaving
the stage; apt, too, to slight their
experience and opinions. If they
do not find their parents honoring
age, where will they learn to honr
Americans are usually affection
ate to the aged members of the
family; but the' lack the tender
ness, deference and care which the
French show to them, and by
which they bring heart and life into
the colorless lives. It is not
enough to give a neglected seat in
the chimney corner to the gray
haired mother or father; use such
devices and innocent wiles as will
make them feel that they have
not lost their place among men;
that the work which they have
done is appreciated; and above all,
that they still have work for others

Singular-.Hole in an Iron Rudder.
A rather singular occurrence has
b"een discovered by the officers of
the steamship Cormonn, now in
poil. It appears that lately, while
the vessel was pitching in a heavy
sea, daylight became visible in the
iron i udder between tiie screw and
the outside rudder frame. Closer
inspection revealed the fact that a
verv large hole had- been eaten
I into the rudder nearly four feet by
three in dimensions. Notwith
standing this shehteered fail ly and
arrived without hiiv drawback. On
arriving here repairs were ordered,
and the rudder will be in good or
I der for the outward voyage. -The
oniy soiuiion oi ine prouieiu wuai
caused the. hole in the rudder is
given by a gentleman who knows
his way about a ship very thor
oughly. He oeiioves it one to tne
galvanic action of a very large
nut at the end of the propeller
shaft. This having disintegrated
the iron of the rudder, the action
of the water washed away the iron
piecemeal, until at length the large
and dangerous hole was noticed.
This "s another of the difficulties
iron ships have to overcome.

Postal statistics of the world
arc curious and interesting. In
the number of letters and postal
cards dispatched and received per
capita of population, Great Brit
ain leads, and the United States
follows; Switzerland, the Nether
lands, Belgium, Germany and
France sucecding in the order
named. In newspaper circulation
the United States is far ahead, as
it is also in the length of railway
lines, high-roads and water routes
for the transportation of mails.
The largest gross revenue falls to
Germany, where, presumably, the
rates are comparatively high. The
United States comes next, Great
Britain, France, Russia, Austria,
Spain and Switzerland following;
but Great Britain enjoys a most
desirable distinction. Tt has the
