Concerning the admission of Washing
ton Territory a Washington special says:
Brents, of Washington Territory, has
baen more than usually industrious this
session in presenting tho claims of his
constituents to admission to statehood.
His bill to admit the territory has been
introduced and referred for over a month,
but there is nothing encouraging in this
fact, for the same measura has been reg
ularly introduced and referred for several
years. A memorial is signed by Govern
or Newell, Sewell Tru x, president of the
couuoil, and E. C. Ferguson, speaker of
the territorial legislature. It give3 the
taxab'e property of Washington Territo
ry at 14,0j0,UvX) and its population at
125,000, some estimates being as high as
150,000. The point is made that Califor
nia was admitted with 92,0.0 population,
Cojorado with 39,O0J, Iowa with 4,000,
while Nevada now has but 07,000. Simi
lar comparisons are made as to tax iblo
property. Agaimt Wasihngton's 41,
OOJ.tOO of tixrfble proparty are placed;
Colorado, .4300,0j0; and Ne-
vade, .i9 0 0,030 each, and Oregon $46,
003,000. Even with these cooipirisons it
is doubtful if Washington will be adint
ted this session. Probably for political
reasons the house committee on territo
ries intend reporting a general law soon,
concerning the admission of new states.
It requires a population sufficient for a
congressman, and under it Wasington
can take a census, and if its claims arc
substantiated can come into the union.

Poutland, Oregon, Jan. 26, 1&S4.
Mr. E. C. Holdcn, Secretary Astoria
Chamber of Cemmerce:
Deab Sib I take the liberty to address
you this letter to inform you "that I have
noticed many articles in the newspapers
concerning Astoria's interests in rail
roads, from which I infer that her citi
zens are becoming impatient for in
crease of transit between that place and
other portions of the country.
It is true that the proposed railroad
which is at present agitating the minds
of her people would do her an immense
amount of good were it constructed. Its
construction is practicable without doubt,
but it would require a long time and th
expenditure of millions of dollars to com
plete and equip it.
Now, have Astoria's people, with their
intense desire for quick communication
with the interior and their hunger for a
railroad in that direction, turned their
backs toward the broad and majestic
highway the noble Columbia river
which no monopoly can ever control,
flowing in sublime and natural grandeur
down and on toward the cctan? Have
they begun to think that one of the most
gigautio works of nature in the whole
world should at last bejin to suocumb
and yield her majesty to tho puny efforts
of man? On her bosom is a smooth and
natural road, that never jolts nor jars;
there we have no hills to climb, no moun
tains to tunnel, and it's wide. On its
track trains can pass and not collide and
destroy human life and endanger limbs,
wmcu; witu ner iriouianes, reacnes iar
away inland, where'there are timber and
cattle, and grain and gold. What ! can
they forsake this great artery that pal
sates through thousands of miles among
fertile valleys and hills?
Dear sir, my principal object in writing
is to inform yju that I am the inventor
of a new-fashioned, swift water-crait,
operated by steam power, that can be
made to travel the distance between here
and Astoria in less time than can ever be
hoo?d for for a train by means of a rail
road, and that two or three of them, large
enough for general transport purposes,
can be built for the amount estimated us
the cost of a single m'-le of the proposed
This is no vision of mine. I have
studied and experimented on the subject
for years, and am now satisded that the
invention can be made to do what I have
represented, and that it cannot be used
on rivers only, but also on the ocean. I
think, by its mans, the distance between
Astoria and Portland can be traveled,
and way landings made, in two and one
half hours. I am confident from results
.of experiments already made that it will
travel at least forty miles per hour, and
my experiments, as yet, have not been en
tirely perfected, and I am sure that with
all parts properly finished much greater
speed could be obtained.
If the chamber of commerce of Astoria,
or any individuals of that city, think what
I have herein said -worthy of considera
tion, and that such an invention as I have
represented would be of benefit to the
place, I would be glad to hear from them
upon the subject.

It is difficult to conceive of any possi

There i no class of public officers who
have been and are still so completely the
spoils of politics as those of municipal
government. There is no class where tht
need is greater for them to be controlled
exclusively' by business considerations.
The work of city officials requires indus
try , aptitude and authority unhampered
by pDlitical influence. Tne officeholder
who owes hia place to ward politicians,
or is ruled in his every action by tht
thought of how it will affect votes, can
not do his work us it needs to be done.
To this fact may be ascribed tho fact that
it requires about three times as great an
expense to transact the City's business as
it would to do the same amount of work
in any business house in the city, and
that when done it is frequently spoiled in
the doing. But so long as voters delib
erately set aside the best men and elect
the worst, what is to be done about it.
The attorney general of the United
States recently decided that post-masters
were not entitled to fees from money or
ders in post-offices in which money-order
business was done by a clerk instead of
by the postmaster in person and that such
fees taken by postmasters must be re
turned. The amount of money already
taken by postmasters in this way is esti
mated at from a quarter to a half million.
In order to get a definite ruling in the
matter, the c:ise of General Dick, post
master of Bioomington. 111., has been
mod6 a test case to be declared by Judge
Drummond of the federal court at Chi
cago. Postmasters similarly situated
have been appealed to, and are respond
ing with funds to assist Generul Dick,
it is rumored that the clerk who actually
did tho money order business in the
Bloomingtou postoffico has decided to
bring suit aganst tho postmaster for fees
collected and retained by tho latter.
The rt-solutions of Mr. Holmau, re
garding land grants, are viewed by some
persons as mere buncombe simply to
increase his chances for the presidency.
They really accomplish nothing, except
serving the purpose of showing how the
house stands on railroad subsidies. From
the vote, we can expect that measures in
troduced for the forfeiture of unearned
land grants will receive a good majority
in the lower branch of the national leg
islature. Nothing has yet come to the
surface m the senate to indicate its posi
tion in this matter; perhaps the session
has not advanced sufficiently for an op
portunity to present itself. The country
will wait in patience, and if the senate
does not follow in the footsteps of the
houe, the political guillotine will be
erected for ome of its members. The
people are very little under party domi
nation, and they support those men for
high official positions who work for their
interests. Our senators and representa
tives understand tho temper of the pub
lic very well, and we presume will shape
their course accordingly. Those who de
sire to return to Washington City with
its allurements and genial social atmos
phere, will vote on these measures in tho
manner that will please their constitu
ency. Dalles I'imcs-Mounlainecr.
