ASTOKIA, OREGON: TUESDAY .NOVEMBER 20, 1S83 AX UNWELC03IE ASSERTION. The iconoclasts will not learo a single cliorislied belief. Not content with destroying the illusions of an tiquity and Bottled opinions of later times, according to cynical statis ticians who have been rummaging in the "Washington archives, it is now alleged that La Fayette, when about to come to thi3 country and do battle against tbe minions of tyranny, niado Silas Deane, the American min ister at Paris with Ben Franklin, sign a contract that he should be made a major-general, and be paid so much a month from the lime ho left la belle France If there is any one idea more than another in regard to our history firmly fixed in the American mind, it is that La Fayette, the young, impulsive, patriotic La Fayette, flew from France to succor tbe Continent als, and from the impulses of a noble nature gave personal and material aid to tbe infant colonics in theirstruggle for independence. The documents now alleged to have been produced place him in tbe same light as the Hesinns who came over here to whip m back into submission, at so much a day. "We do not believe that La Fayette story; wo don't want to be- Jiove it; it is infinitely preferable to retain the first and moro fragrant memory; and to picture LaFayette iS a gallant young Frenchman who came as did a hundred moro Steuben and DoKalb from Germany, Kosci-u-jko from Poland toaid the cause of liberty, and to fight, and if need be, to die in her defence. In the coming congress Texas will use every effort that a united con gressional delegation can use to pro cure an appropriation for the im provctnent of the Galveston bar. The same arguments used in that ox t reme corner of the union apply -with equal force in this northwestern section. If anything the need, is greater for Columbia improvement The Lone Star stale realizes that con t titration is necessary, and. the frit tering away of possible congressional appropriations in an attempt to pla eate all portions of the slate is recog nized as mistake!? policy. There is an example in this thai Oregon would do well io imitate. The New York Tribune advocates law for the collection of statistics of the wealth brought to America by immigrants from the old world. It thinks we may be getting more gold into the country from the pockets of immigrants than from our mines. In past years 25,000,000 Immigrants have come to our shores. If they average $20 hi gold for each person there is an addition of $500,009,000 to the country's capital. The income yearly from this source alone would perhaps pay the interest on $400,000, W0 of Ihe public debt The idols worshipped by the heathen of Africa and India are near ly all manufactured in England, and pay a very handsome profit. It is slated that the commercial value of the brass and csst iron gods shipped to heathen lands far exceeds that of the Bibles, books and tracts which reach the same destination. MiDWLEBunv. Yt, talks of putting a marble slab in its new town hall, with a record of the towns inventions. It claims the circular saw, the wool picking machine, power looms, saw iug marble by sand, water, and soft iron, welding east-steel and making door and window sash by water power. Tim rormon apostles own and run a bank, street railroads, and opera house and a mammoth trading post in Salt Lake City, control the Utah Central railroad and collect $500,000 a year in tithes from the faithful fol lowers of the Church of the Latter Day Saints. Bath continues to be the great center of shipbuilding in Maine, and. turns out this year 11 ships, 2 barks, 1 brig, 39 schobneSj 7 sloops and 9 steamers, a total tonnage of 40,000, or about the same as last year. The total tonnage built in the state this year is about C0,000. Uxdek date of October 2Sth, the N. Y.
