COMMEXTS OF TOE NEW YOBK PBEW.
The New York Sun is wildly jubi
lant over the defeat of Morrison's
bilL It says: "There will be ample
time and opportunity to reform the
tariff a year hence, when we know
more about its -practical bearing on
the great interests of the country. In
the mean time let ns proceed to busi
ness." TheJEferaZd says: "The democrats
must bear the full results of this de
feat There is nothing in it that can
be made into victory."
The World joyously exclames:
"Now for work. The defeat of the
Morrison bill in the house ought to
cause a better feeling on the part of
Morrison and. his friends. The large
democratic vote that was against the
result is no evidence that the demo
crat&xparty. is not in accord in its de
sirefor revenue reform and tax re
duction. 'There is only a difference
in its views regarding the time to en
ter upon this work. When the re
publican party has been driven from
power it will bo time for carrying
these reforms into effect."
The Ttwies says: "The only impor
tant business which the democrats in
the house haTe been engaged in for
the past five months came to naught
yesterday through the defection of
forty-one men of their own party.
Whatever else it may show, the kill
ing of the Morrison tariff bill proves
beyond question the incapacity of the
party for serious legislation. It3 de
feat leaves the party with no princi
Tribune: 4,So far as the democrat
ic party is concerned it has done
what it could to strike a death blow
at the homo industries of the country.
Eleven million person- cugdjred in,
or dependent on, manufacturing in
dustries in this .country, have had
their interests injuriously affected for
many months by this vain and fruit
less discussion. It is fortunate an
election is approaching which will
enable the voters to pass upon the
use of a party given over to such
hopeless imbecility. Whan we look
for its leaders and voters on the tar
iff, and all similar issue.", we find
them in the solid south.,'
The Star says: "It is a valuable
triumph for the republican party, se
cured through the active co-operation
of Randall and his squad or monopo
listic adherents, miscalled democrats
The. Oregon Short Line.
The latest news from the Oregon
Short line is that work has been re
sumed and that there are now 2fi00
men employed in its construction.
The Oregon Improvement Company
has five miles of Toad -west ef: tbo
Grand Bonde valley and four miles
on the eastern side to complete by the
1st of September, and it is positively
fitated that the road will bo finished
by that date. West of Huntington
there remain about twelve miles to be
built, and this will also be finished,
although it is rather a rough bection
of country in which to construct a
railroad, and the cost of this portion
of the line will be about 8700,000.
Between Huntington, L T., and
Meacham, Ore., 110 miles) the line is
all gradedj and about 300 bridge
builders will soon be put on to push
the 3rork to an early completion.
Most of the track is ready for the
iron and the road will probably be
completed for travel about the 15th
of June. ' Meacham is the present
terminus of the O. E. & N. Com
pany's branch, which will afford con
nection with the Oregon Short line
for coast points.
The new road leaves the Union Pa
cific at Granger, in southeastern
Wyoming,: about 155 miles east of
Ogden, and runs a little north of west
of Wyoming, across the Territory of
Idaho, being at present completed
nearly to Huntington, in eastern Ore
gon. On leaving Granger the road
runs in a westerly direction, follow
ing Ham's fork for about forty miles.
It then enters Twin creek valley and
afterwards the Great Bear river val
ley, ninetv miles in extent. After
passing through Bear river valley it
follows the Pontlfeuf for forty miles
and twenty-six miles west of Pocatiilo
it makes its first crossing of the Snake
river and enters the Idaho lava beds.
The total length of the projected line,
including hidings and short branches,
is about 625 miles.
Northern Pacific Notes.
X New Tort special says: Presi
dent Harris and several directors urge
the building of the Cascade branoh
from Ainsworth toTacoma, Seattle or
some other point on Paget sound
within five years, declaring the North
ern Pacific must have a complete road
of its own, and that Portland is not a
seaport, and the Columbia bar is not
a very formidable obstacle to com
merce. The other directors oppose,
on account of the enormous expense
of the branch, and believing the Co
lumbia bar can be removod. Villard
has looked very carefully into the
subject and states that the chief ob
jection to any point on Paget sound
as a terminus was the prevalence of
verybeavy fog3 .six months of the
twelve, which seriously interfered
with navigation. Under existing oir
cumstances it is doubtful if the Cas
cade branch will be built for a great
while. The probability is that the
Northern Pacific will lease the Ore
gon Navigation, and thus secure its
part of the road as their own.
The treasurership of the Oregon
Improvemento ompany will be given,
no doubt, to Prosper Smith, brother
of "ElijgkSmith, president.
The-:stbrj, that Villard would go
back to journalism is ridiculously ab
sard. The work on the Oregon end

andsSCrsnscontfnental was to com

Th4Siion Pacific has also stopped
ninety miles on the other side. There
is no prospect of resumption.

X New Town in Dakota.
The Western idea of real estate en
terprise is, to buy the Government
land for 31.25 an acre, and sell it in
corner lots at 2,500 each. A car
load of lumber is dumped on the
prairie, and in less than a -week the
future Chicago of the great North
west i3 in active life.
I had the pleasure of seeing one of
these ambitious towns just as it
cracked its shell and looked around
for customers. A canvas tent was
the first attraction ; then came that
inevitable accompaniment of western
civilization, a barrel of whisky; then
a saloon a rough-board cabin with a
canvas door, and 2 siju over it which
indicated that the proprietor had
beon ported in object lessons. It
read "lodgings," and thenapiecoof
pine plank was nailed up to finish
the sentence "board T "Lodging3
and board." I had the first choice
of corner lots, but as the real estate
office hadn't arrived, I lost this one
golden opportunity for what I was
assured would have been the best in
vestment of my life. 0
The new town fully- illustrated
Mark Twain's reflections upon civili
zation. "How solemn and beautiful
the thought," saj s the great Ameri-l
can iiuraorist, mat tne earnest pio
neer of civilization is never the
steamboat, never the railroad, never
l,n ftnhliifli cMinrtl natrAr fl,n trtic. '
sionary but always whisky." Such
is the case. .Look history over; you 1
will see; the missionary comes after
the whisky. I mean that ho arrives
nf ter the whisky has arrived. Next
comes the poor immigrant, with axe
and hoe and rifle ; next the trader;
next the miscellaneous rush; next
the gambler, the desperado, the high
wayman, and all their kindred in sin
of both sexes; and next the smart
chap who has bought an old grant
that covers all the land; this brings
the lawyer; the vigilance committee
brings the undertaker; all these in
terests bring the newspaper ; the
newspaper starts up politics and a
railroad; all hands turn to and build
a church ami a jail, and behold !
civilization is established in the land.
But whisky, you will see, was the van
leader in this beneficent work. It al
ways is. It was like a foreigner
and excusable in a foreigner to bo
