Astoria, Oregon, Wednesday Morninjr, October 24, 1883.
The banking syndicate which
loaned the Northern Pacific Rail
way Company large sums of money
to construct the road, taking a
first lien on the land grant for
security, are now in a position to
dictate the management of the
road because of the necessity of
the company to borrow 20,000,
000 more This $20,000,000 is
required to fund the floating debt,
to make bridges, tunnels and bet
terments on the main line and for
the construction of branch roads.
By the last report of the directors
it appears that the main line, ex
cluding the division from the
mouth of Snake river through the
Cascades to Tacoma, which is only
begun, created debts as follows:
General ful mortise 8 40.000,00r
Old bonds..: ."..SJUOO
Dividend scrip due isss 4,010.820
Total S m&r2.W20
Add the 20.000,000 new loan
now asked for purposes as apove
stated and we have a total debt of
$70,5,2,020. The $40,000,000 first
mortgaije bonds were floated at SO
and therefore realized no more
than 32,000,000 cash for construc
tion purposes. The $20,000,000
new loan will probably fetch no
more than SO, or a cash return of
$10,000,000. This, plus the 32,
000,000, plus $5,891,200 of old
bonds, plus 1,G4:0,S20 dividend
scrip, at a par for the last two
items, foots up a total of cash re
sources for construction of main
line, 1001 miles and branches, 010
miles; total,' 25.77 miles .and fpr
all betterments -o"C $583?,Qp! j
Now when we reflect that the di-,j
rectors of the Central Pacific line j
from here to Ogden represent
that their road, without branches
or betterments, cost within ,000
000 as much as these 2577 miles
of Northern Pacific, with better
ments, it is astonishing that thp
New York bankers who loaned
the above $40,000,000 in bonds
worth $32,000,000 in cash, should
refuse the new loan, or hesitate
about it, but on the condition that
Yillard should resign the presi
dency of the company. They
think his financial management
was 'extravagant. They forget
that he labored under pressure
and was forced to the completion
of the road, without regard to ex
pense, to save the land grant and
therefore to save the security of
the 40,000,000 loan, least con
gress might intervene by an act of
forfeiture. It is said that these
bosses would surely have compell
ed the resignation of Yillard had
the vice-president of the Pennsyl
vania accepted the position, which
he will not, since he is likely to
be made president of the Pennsyl
vania very soon. Contrasted with
the money spent or pretended to
have been spent on the road from
San Francisco to Omaha, the
Northern Pacific road has been
constructed with marvelous ccono
in The actual cash debenture
is, on the main line and branches,
including this new loan of S$20,
000,000 asked now, but a little
over 22,700 per mile.
Testimony adduced in Boston
shows that the tanning of human
skins has been extensively carried
on for the past eighteen years.
One witness saw several whole
hides of women that had been
tanned. He said they were per
fect and looked natural. Another
witness carried a piece in his
pocket for two years.
Kankakee has a justice who

I How Shall We Get Good Dairy
j Since dairying is to become a
business of prime importance,
tnose wno wish to taKe advantage
ot opportunities must begin to
raise dairy stock, v or tins pur- j
pose introduce a Jersey or Hoi- ;
stein male into a neighborhood and i
breed good grade milkers, and
you will soon see results. Two
years will bring good half Jersey
heifers with their calves; and in
four years the successful breeder
will have a herd of three-quarter
blood Jerseys. For dairy purposes
these are 'fully as gootl as the full
blood Jersey. For butter alone
the Jersey may be the best cow,
but if cheese is wanted any part of
the year, the Holstein is the cor
rect thing. Holsteins will make
excellent butter and cheese and
main- say they are the best for
the average fanner to have. It is
no doubt true that either will an
swer the purpose well and make
extra choice butter. The fanner
who will prepare himself with
grades of these breeds, can soon
have good milkers to sell for town
cows and will get well paid for his
At the present time a good
milking cow will sell to a towns
man, who expects to feed his cow
all the time, and wants plenty of
rich milk and cream, for $75 to
100. Cows have become impor
tant members of the community
and have the say so in many re
spects, so the breeder of cows has
a safe business.-

who would gladly pay HO cents per "
pound for choice Jersey butter the
year round. Such being the fact ,
our fanners should lose no time in
supplying that demand. It is not
uncertain, but certain, to double in I
quantity within the next two years, i
J&ood butter will always control I
the market. '
The Oregon fanner must show
enterprise or he will be badly left.
The railroad has brought another
era, a new set of people, more ox- j
travagance, if yon will call it so, :
or more appreciation of excellence s
will be a better phrase. People !
with particular tastes have a right j
to, if able to support them. Taste
is expensive, but the prosperous
worldlings who have the meftns to '
gratify their appetites arc no dis
advantage to the producer. They
create a market specially distin
guished for excellence, and the i
iw ' ,
farmer who can achieve excellence j
nrofits by the exclusive demand. !
lt becomes, therefore, a great point
with producers to attain the excel- ;
lence that commands a premium. !
Every neighborhood has num-
bers of good milking cows that j
impart something of that excel-!
lence to their offspring. Breed
such cows to a male of good but
ter pedigree, and the result will be
that the impress of the long line
of butter making stock, through
the agency of the male, will cre
ate a new race of dairy cows very
little short of the best known. If
our stock and dairy farmers will
begin immediately to work up a
high grade of good milkers we
soon shall have dairy products for
home use without looking to Cali
fornia or the West or to Elgin,
Illinois, or any other dairy produc
ing region, Eastward. Meantime
we are expecting hundreds of
thousands of dollars annually to
secure good dairy products for our
own use. The business increases
rapidly and we must be up and
J doing at an earnest rate if we
have any hope of maintaining our-
selves independently of other
states in supplying dairy products
All for Love.
On the 10th Miss Laura Clark,
a young lady aged about 20 years,
committed suicide at the Cottage
Grove hotel, Dane county, by tak
ing a dose of morphia. She was
employed at the hotel at the time
of the tragic event; had been em
ployed there about six months. J.
Y. Thornton, the proprietor of the
hotel, went to her room to wake
her up in the morning. He found
her room locked, and heard a sus
picious noise on the inside like one
gasping for breath. He called his
wife, who managed to get into the
girl's room. She was found lying
in bed, breathing very hard, with
her face almost purple. Mrs.
Tkornton shook her vigorously
and endeavored to arouse her, but
without success. A physician was
then hastiby summoned. The lat
ter did everything human to save
th liff nf tbf itnfnrf nnnto vminrr
woman, but without avail. She
soon uiea. xv Dottie partiauy
filled with the salt of morphia was
found in the room. The following
note was also found:
