Washington-, Dec.2G. Payson,
an Illinois irfember of the house
committe'on judiciary, who has
taken ,a very active part in the
matter of the lapsed railroad land
grants, and who declared himself
in favor of the forfeiting of all un
earned lands, is devoting the holi
day recess to collecting additional
details bearing on the subject. At
the department of the interior to
day he ascertained that the Oregon
Central road has constructed a few
miles under its grant and that it
contains upwards of a million
and a half acres of land be
tween Portland and Astoria upon
which settlers are very desirous
of entering. With a view to throw
ing this land open to settlement
under the homestead law Payson
has prepared a resolution declaring,
it forfeited and hopes to have it
acted upon by the house judiciary
committee at the next meeting.
In conversation with represent
atives of the press to-day on the
general question of forfeiture of
land grants, Paj'son said that the
indications were quite favorable
for consideration of the subject in
the hnuse before the adjournment
of the present session.
So the "Astoria land graut" is
getting an airing before congress
Our congressional delegation
have been active in the work of
directing attention to this subject.
We are glad to see that members
from other states are aiding in the
We are informed that female
suffrage prevails to some extent
in Scotland, the ladies exercising
the right to vote at municipal
elections. In at least two towns
the right -was largely taken ad
vantage of at the election last
month. In the city of Perth,
where there was a contest in only
one ward, between fifty and sixty
ladies cast their ballots, the male
voters looking upon it as a matter
of course. In the town of Sterling
the votes of the ladies were in
great demand, and several council
men owe their election to the bal
lots of their fair friends. While
Scotland seems to be conservative
in many resoects, it certainly can
not be said that she is so in poli
tics, as there the problem" of
woman's fights appears to bo
solved to an extent which must
gratify the advocates of that
The London Times says: ""We
can no longer exist without Amer

recent memory, we were childishly

proves to be the country by which

us corn by the hundreds of ship-
Its beef competes with ours,
or rather becomes ours, and is sold
at our natfve prices, under the
hands of the enterprising English
butchers. While to the Roman po
et the thought of getting fish from
the Caspian was the thought of
odious luxury, with us it is the
classes that cannot afford the Tay
or the Tweed that send to the Co
lumbia river for their salmon."

response to the reflections cast
upon our nary, says: "The French
nowspapers sneer at the American
navy. So do our own. No body
cares a tinker about that, but no

and corn, our financial credit, and
