LUMBBMEX ASKING FOB PliOTKCTION.
A late Washington dispatch says that
Rosecrans has presented to the house a
petition, signed by tbe principal lumber
dealers on the Pacific coast, opposing any
reduction in the duty on lumber. Peti
tioners state that if special industries of
the east require and receive protection,
the lumber industry has a right also to
demand protection. They say if dnty
was abolished, competition in the lumber
trade would come from British Co
lumbia, and would be in the
highest degreo detrimental to
them. Freights on lumber, they say,
from British Columbia to points in Cali
fornia, are quite as low as from Puget
sound, while the difference in freights
from ports in Alaska would be so largely
in favor of British Columbia lumber as
to give the latter a monopoly in the trade
if the duty is taken off. They also call
attention to the fact that the lumber
trade in British Columbia is carried on
by Chinese coolie labor. The petition,
before being presented, was signed by
the entire congressional delegation from
How Thej Fix It.
"How is it that you and your husband
cover wrangle about which is to get up
first and fix the fire?" asked one lady of
of her next door neighbor.
"Why,'.' was the reply, "we settle that
every night before going to bed by a
game of cards. If he beats me three out
of five games I get up first, and when I
beat him he gets up."
Reducing the Boats.
AsTOBiA, Feb. 3, 18S4.
The proposition to reduce the number
of fishing boats on tbe river still agitates
the minds of our cannerymen and I feel
confident that a reduction will be made
to the extent of either one-half, or possi
bly forty per cent of the number, taking
last year's list of boats as a basis for
There were some of our cannerymen,
who at first, would not favor the pro
posed reduction from the fact of their
having men and nets sufficient to run as
many ooats as last year, but the better
reflection which they have given the
matter, for the past two weeks, have
made all confident of its prosperity, and
now the proposition has the approval of
all, except possibly one of our Astoria
canneries, and I doubt if they will desire
to stand in the way of the other thirty
eight canneries, who are confident of a
Having of a dollar or more on each case
Aiialf million dollars, thus saved, dis
tributed among our cannerymen, would
greatly relieve the present feeling of de
pression, and as the only requirement to
accomplish it, is a concert of action, I
reel sure it will be done.

In our opinion a committee of five
should bo appointed from among the

two from Forest Grove to grasp the sit

There is no better or more reliable in
dication, at once of the assured pros
perity of a city and of the firm confidence
of its cilizens'm its steady progress, than
the exhibition of an open, hearty and
liberal ,readines3, on the part of its lead
ing men, to expend money and donate
laud for object of public improvement or
ornament. Where citizens are found en
dued with this kind of public spirit, and
actuated by an enlightened regard to the
conditions on which the prosperity of the
community hinges, there need be no fears
entertained that opposition, however
plausible, bitter and well organized, will
ever succeed in staying the onward
march of the place towards assured prom
inence over rn'als less fortunate in their
inhabitants. Seattle Herald.
Private enterprise is one of the prime
conditions of national prosperity and
progress. The more men ure encouraged
to work and save, to build up homes for
themselves, and surround their families
with comforts, to engage in manufactures
and eommerce and mining and other
activities, to risk money and health, and
even life, in works calculated to increase
public wealth and comfort, and give em
ployment to mechanics, and diffuse art
and refinement, the better for the coun
try and everybody in it. Portland
The early settlers of the several towns
on Puget Sound have been, and in some
places are still their own worst enemies.
They have lived cheaply for many
years: their wants have been few and
easily supplied, and now that the star of
enterprise has wended its way to the
northwestern shore of this vast continent
too many are inclined to look on the new
comers as interlopers, and instead of
offering inducements for family location,
hold their property at such high rates
that the man in moderate circumstances
is driven away rather than encouraged.
Port of Entry Times.
Thare seems to have been quite a fall
lately in real estate values at Seattle.
All those prominent residents who are
not speculators should rejoice over this
evidence of returning reason. The city
has obtained too firm a hold on business
interests to be permanently checked in
her progress, and the unnatural, fevered
condition which has preceded this stage
could not have been much longer main
tained without permanent injury to the
place, Olympia Standard.
Whatever the final vardict may be as
to Mr. Villard's capacity to manago the
various transportation interests lately
under his charge, there can be no
question that as a "mixer" ho was emi
nently successful. There are said to be
some places where it is a lucky child who
knows his own father; surely, for the
last two or three years he was a lucky
employe around some of the Portland
offices who knew which of half a dozen
corporations he was working for. Taco
What is the use of every little one
hors3 paper in tho country trying to
nominate a president? Early in tho
leafy days of June, when fragrant flowers
bloom forth in loveliness, the moguls will
meet at Chicago and the political ma
chine will grind out some obscuro candi
date like Hayes or Arthur for the people
to walk up to the rack and vote for.
Such men as Blaine, Edmunds, Logan,
and other brainy men will ba snowed un
der fifteen feet. Our present system of
selecting a president is a queer concern,
very unsatisfactory and uncertain.
Strange, isn't it? Every time a presi
dential election comes on a lot of "inde
pendent" newspapers start up all over
the country. They most always turn out
to be Democratic papers in disguise. But
then "a rose by most any otner name
would smell as sweet," and why not a
Democratic paper do as effective work
while masquerading? It's a good deal
like concealing a blue mass pill in a lot
of raspberry jam. The effect is the
same. Port Townsend Argus.
What valid reason can Mr. George give
in regard to the Oregon Central Railroad
Company's title to tbe millions of acres
of land granted for the construction of a
railroacfrom Forest Grove to A6toria?
Can he siy that the company has not
had sufficient time? Can he say that tho
O. fc C. and other companies desiro to
have the Astoria branch built? Can he
deny that they have refused to permit
the building of tho road when it was
shown that the land grant would pay
tor it? Mercury.

Last Friday 111 meals were served at
the Walla Walla soup-house. In the
morning forty-six meals were given away
without tickets, the superintendent of
the establishment asking the men to
carry in two loads of wood which were
lying in tho street, and that would pay
for their meal. Of the forty-six who
availed themselves of the free much,only
four would so far demean themselves as
to pack wood. The superintendent
thinks he has a very hard crowd with
which to deal.
The New York Star claims tho honor
of being the foremost and most persis
tent of eastern newspapers in demand
ing forfeiture of unearned public lands
voted railroad corporations, and dares a
Republican senate to put itself on rec
ord against the vote of the house on
Thursday, regarding the Texas Pacific
grant. It calls on the house to complete
the work and declare a forfeiture of the
following lands: l,0G2,Ol0 acres granted
to the Oregon branch of the Central Pa
cific, 1,074,OIX) to the Oregon and Califor
nia, 750,000 to the Oregon Central, 37,
400,030 to tho Northern dacific, and 38,
yi9,u00 to tho Atlantic and Pacific. The
Star says: "Tho fact that tho Oregon
brach of the Central Pacific has already
secured patents upon 1,0J2,3M acres more
than it is entitled 10 is one of the mys
teries which only past and present Re
publican d rectors of the land office at
Washington can intelligently explain'"
During this week tho committee on
public lands will bring in a bill forfeiting
the grants of the California and Oregon,
the Oregon and California, tho Oregon
Central, the Northern Pacific, and per
haps one or two other roads. On threo
of thoso the committee has already de
cided to report. A few days ago a vote
was taken in committee, and tho general
principle was declared that congress has
tho power to forfeit all railway grants not
earned in tho time prescribed by tho law.
It is understood this was mado for the
benefit of tho senate committee, a major
ity of who3a members are known to iio d
that congress has no power to perfect
gaants where roads have boon built in
good faith. If tho senate committee en
tertains this opinion the house bills will
probably all be beaten. A reaction from
the monopoly stampede in tho house has
already set in, and several senators have
said to rash so big a thing as the Toxas
Pacific bill through without debate was
positively indecent, and not calculated to
mako the senate respect tho action of the.
