AN INTERNATIONAL QUESTION.
The secretary of state recently
transmitted to the house copies of all
correspondence on file in the state de
partment in relation to the arrest at
Lodz, in Kussian Poland, of Bern
hardt Wagner, a citizen of the United
States. The correspondence shows
that the state department was notified
of complaint made by Wagner that
on returning from the United States
to his native country he had been
-arrested and his passports seized
.The department took immediate steps
to ascertain the truth of the com-
- plaint, and found that the governor of
Tetroken claimed that Wagner was a
Russian subject, although having an
American passport. Secretary Freling
buysen,in a "letter to Minister Hunt
..refers to the story ibat Wagner had
been exiled, and says: "This govern
ment cannot believe that a govern
ment, which, like that of Russia, has
-- ibst-no opportunity in cultivating and
extending friendly relations, should
have so far disregarded evidence of
the right of protection of the govern
ment of the United States, which
Reinhard Wagner presented in his
lawfully issued passport, and turned
a deaf ear to the courteous interpo
sition made through you in his Te-
half as to seize upon him and con-
. sign him to exile in Siberia. No gov
ernment could be expected to look
.calmly on and behold the infliction
upon one of its lawful citizens of
suoh a punishment" Subsequently
it was ascertained that Wagner had
not been exiled, but by bribing the
Russian police had escaped and re
turned to America. In the last letter
of the correspondence Secretary Fre
linghuysen calls the attention of
Minister Hunt to a statement made
by the governor of Petroken in a
communication about Wagner, in
which he says: "The American pass
port with which he was pro
vided was taken away from him,
as in his quality of a Russian
subject he had not the right
'to' have it" To this the Sec
retary objects, and says this gov
ernment will never admit the claim
of local or general officers of a foreign
government to decide that a bona fide
. "bolder of an Amerioau passport has
no right thereto. Such a paper is
tne mgnest eviaeuce tnat tho person
to whom it was granted is a citizen of
the United States, entitled by our
own laws and the generally accepted
laws of nations to the protection due
at home and abroad to all citizens,
whether native or naturalized, unless
it can be shown by their own acts
that they have voluntarily ceased to
enjoy their rights to such protection.
That is the question to be decided be-
tween the two governments, and to
claim that subordinates of one of
them have the right to determine it
would show disrespect to foreign
states, which it would combat" The
secretary directs the presentation by
Minister Hunt to the Russian govern
ment of a proposition for naturaliza
tion connection between the United
States and Russia which shall dis
tinctly enunciate and at the same
time limit the claims of that govern
ment over those of original Russian
alegiency naturalized here, who may
return within Russian jurisdiction,
and who, upon their departure, left
unfulfilled military obligations to
OUR COAST TRADE.
If one hundred San Franciscans
were .asked what constituted the chief
"factor in the prosperity of their city,
probably ninety-five would say it was
..the city's trade; her position, and
the fact that she is headquarters for
a large extent of coast Next to the
development of the Comstock mines
v which poured a flood of gold and
silver into San Francisco, which built
her exchanges, and covered Nob Hill
with palaces, nothing has given the
Joay Uity such an impetus as the
l revenue derived from her coast com
merce. We have no mountain of
precious metal to be mined and
minted in our seaport city, but we
have more abiding attributes of pros
. perity, more permanent sources of
wealth in the coast trade that is ours
. if we but secure it Southern Ore
, gon is secured to our southern neigh
bor from the Oregon line to Yaquina;
but little could be done to direct the
'trade from the channels through
" - "which it now runs, but from Yaquina
uprthward to the Quinaiult reserva
tion is a stretch of magnificent terri-
"jtoryof which Astoria is the natural
center. Tillamook county is just
v emerging into prominence. It is,
pre-eminently, a stock and dairy
country. Its wealth is in the raising
of cattle and the sale of dairv Trod-
-. "nets. During the past year the trade
lias been constantly growing, and As
toria, realizing this, has made com
. .mendable efforts to secure it. Tilla
mook has always been an isolated,
and, consequently, a slow-growing
community, but'the season of '84 will
' "bring immigration and wealth which
will indirectly inure to our benefit,
Northward is that magnificent stretch"
of country which seems designated
aby the hand of "nature as the seat of
.men in ail tne nat-
that make a country
region is fast filling up
and its trade is
increasing in a way
which already indicates its future
importance. The people have the
kindliest feeling toward Astoria and
anything that can bo done to aug
ment it will not be amiss.
Talking about the Mississip. .
river, the necessity for its improve
ment, and the great convention of
representative men that met last
week to direct the attention of con
trress to this matter, the St Louis
Globe-Democrat very justly says:
"The feeling of prejudice has
gained some excuse, no doubt, from
the practice of associating the Missis
sippi with a hundred other rivers
whenever an appropriation has been
sought. There are othei rivers in
the country that ought to be im
proved, no doubt, but it is true, at
the same time, that the really merito
rious projects of this kind have suff
ered not a little by reason of being
connected with schemes of a doubt
ful and indefensible sort. Congress
men have too frequently insisted up.
on loading down the river and harbor
bill with appropriations calculated
only to benefit particular localities,
and members entirely willing to vote
money for the improvement of the
Mississippi and its navigable tribu
taries have thus been forced in many
instances to take the negative side
because they could not consent to
indorse all the outlays proposed for
obscure and useless purposes."
It is just this that works delay in
the effort to get needed appropri
ations for important improvements,
as in the case of the Columbia.
A CONFUSION OF TERMS.
A beoekt eastern convention of
"free thinkers" gives rise to consider
able comment regarding: what "free
thinking" is. There seems to be a
confusion of terms. Some of the
speakers seem to have thought th at
free thinking was a discover' to the
credit of which they were entitled.
The fact is "free thinking" in one
sense has always existed. That is if
free thinking be defined as the right
of the human mind to form its im
pressions in refusal to an attempt at
mental coercion. This applies to the
inalienable right of any one to do
whatever thinking he pleases
Thought can no more be suppressed
than wilL But "free thinking" in the
sense of thought wholly outside of
environment and prejudice, there is
no suoh thing in the world, nor has
there ever been. Shelley's brilliant
thought comes in; "Life, like a dome
of many 'colored glass stains the
white radiance of eternity." Thought
has its laws as unchangeable as ge
ometry, as fixed as the stars. Of
what a man is, his thoughts are the
unerring index. No two men or wo
men in this world could possibly
think alike, if they tried. The point
of view is different with every ob
There is considerable discussion
concerning Henry Watterson's bill in
congress copyrighting press dis
patches. What a man or set of men
pay for, that they should have, and
if news be made an object of costly
purchase its buyers should have pro
tection. Akotheb vessel has been wrecked
at the entrance to Puget sound. This
time it iB at Borilla Point, opposite
Cape Flattery. The unfortunate ves
sel was the bark Lizzie. Marshall, and
is a total loss.
