WEDNESDAY. .FEBRUARY 27. 1884
PRINCE BISSIARCK'S LETTER.
The following communication from
Chancellor Bismarck, dated February
-9,"iB published in the Berlin official
Gazette Whatever may be thought
of the correctness of the chancellor's
position, it must be acknowledged
that his letter, as translated, is extremely-elegant,
as well as courteous,
Any recognition in a foreign coun
try of the personal qualities of Ger-
. mans, especially when msde by so im
portant a body as the house of repre
sentatives, is gratifying to our
.national feelings. I should have
gratefully accepted the communica
tion made by Minister Sargent and
should have asked the emperor to
empower me to present it to the
reichstag if the resolution had not
contained an opinion regarding the
object and effect of Lasker's activity
which was opposed to my convictions.
According to my experience of the
political and economic development
of the German people, I cannot recog
nize that opinion as one which the
events I have witnessed would justify.
I should not venture to oppose my
judgment to the opinion of such an
illustrious body as the house of rep
resentatives if I had not, for more
than thirty years active participation
in the internal policy of Germany
gained experience which justified me
in attaching a certain value to my
judgment in questions of home affairs.
I cannot determine to ask the em-
' "peror for the necessary power to com
municate the resolution to the reich
stag, because I should have officially
to advocate before the emperor opin
ions which I cannot recognize as cor
rect" Wbiiinq of the tomato canning
trade, a correspondent of the Pack
ers' Journal says:
Let .all packers, city and country,
remember that scarcity is their best
broker, and over-production the
strongest rival in the market. They
"should never forget that 10 cents per
dozen profit on 500 cases is better
than five cents per dozen Iosb on 1000.
It might pay some of them to have a
couple of illuminated mottoes hung
upiii the packinghouse, one of which
might '.read, "God bless our Packing
House,"" and the other, "Don't pack
butlmlf the quantity you are tempted
lo pack," and they would find next
winter blessed beyond what this has
been, especially if they pick and paok
the best." This applies to other
branches of the trade besides to
matoes. The -overcrowded condition of the
medical profession is attested by a
writer in the Chicago Tribune. He
places the number of practising phy
sicians and surgeons now in the
United States at 90,000 or one to ev
ery 500 inhabitants. He impresses
upon young men the advisability of
" entering upon industrial rather than
professional careers; as industrial
avenues offer superior inducements
from the fact of their having, com
paratively speaking, but little compe
tition. Investigation in other direc
tions would find the same state of
things existing in all the professions,
which are crowded to repletion.
Amoxq the sensations may be men
tioned that a Now York man claims
to have in his possession information
establishing the fact beyond perad
venture that Queen Victoria was se
cretly married to John Brown short
ly after the death of the royal con
sort He claims that Beaconsfield
discovered this, and through threat
ening to disclose it secured his ad
vancement If this should happen to
, be true, which it probably is not,
the world will never know it 'for cer
tain." It would be too shocking to
the English nobility.
And now is made the unctuous dis
covery that the "butterine' shipped
to Oregon so extensively from the
"East and sold at fancy prices, is man
ufactured in Chicago "to sell." The
"stuff is half lard and the other half
alleged butter by the "worked over"
jprocess. It is worth fifteen cents a
pound in Chicago and sells for fifty
when this side of the Blue Mount
?JEhe Baker City Tribune is the
first Oregon paper to fly a presiden
' tial flag On'its folds are inscribed,
For president, Eobt. T. Lincoln, for

" Miller of California, and you have a
ticket that would carry this coast by
a handsome majority.
ABauixa from a bread and butter
stand point the Tacoma Ledger pleads
vthat the railroad grants be not for-
.feited, and as a clincher avers that
the present effort to declare that
the land shall revert to its owners,
the people, is .simply a desire to cinch
the railroad company.

The Boseburg Plaindealer is au
thoritatively informed that Hon. E
B. "Watson, the present chief justice
of the supremo court is not a candi
date for re-election. From other
sources The Astobiak learns that
the Judge would not be averse to
congressional honors. But "Western
Oregon has a man for the place this
time, a man who will fill the position
with credit to himself and satisfaction
to the entire state Hon. C. "W. Fulton.
An Egyptian dispatch of the 25th
says: Great uneasiness is felt here
at the report that powerful Arab
tribes who occupy the territory be
tween Khartoum and "Wady Halfi and
eastward as far as Norber, have re
volted. If this is true General Gor
don, with Khartoum and other garri
sons, are cut off. Eli Mahdi's emis
saries are going throughout the whole
of Egypt, bearing the simple message,
"I am coming. Be ready."
The verdict of "murder in the first
degree" brought in by the Portland
jury in the Murray-Yenke trial will
go far toward checking the growing
feeling in our state regarding the
manifest weakness of jurors in dodg
ing a verdict in accordance with the
law and the facts.
