The Blaine and Logan club held an

eluded to make a thorough can

next Friday evening to elect field officers

There is a project on foot now that is
calculated to produce greater security in
the matter of fire, and thus tend to lower
the present high rates of insurance.
Briefly stated, it is to create and main
tain a fund sufficient to have a fire patrol
and keep the force pump, etc.. on Flavel's
dock in constant readiness to throw one
or more streams in case of necessity- On
more than one occasion Capt. Flavel's
lire apparatus has proved of great value,
and were it to l)a so arranged that it
could be utilized at a moment's notice it
could come grandly to our firemen's aid
at a critical moment. The idea is a good
one, and will no doubt be put into prac
IMPOKTAXT IF TRUE.
For some time the Northern Pacific
has been endeavoring to lease the O. R.
&, N. systems, but nndoubledly has
failed. The lease was to have been
signed to-day; but information to hand
indicates that Jay Gould had as good as
consummated the lease, and that the
Northern Pacific is out of the fight.
Gould's plans are said to bo the securing
of an outlet to tho sea and to accom
plish that desirable end outbid the North
ern Pacific for the lease above referred
to. O ur source of information justifies
us in saying that his plans are, after
striking tide water, to build down tho
west side of the Sound, making the ter
mimus at Port Angeles. That portion of
the news while interesting is not so im
portant as the statement which accom
panies it. "I am in a position to say to
you that the certificates for the land
along the Wilkeson road wHl be issued
as soon as Secretary Teller is satisfied
that the Cascade branch will be built,
and within a reasonable length of time,
that he will issue the certificates. In
consequence of that assurance the Board
of Directors of the Northern Pacific
Company have concluded to abandon
their efforts to secure a lease of the O. R.
&N. system and will, on the lSlhof No
vember next, aicard the contract forpierc
ing the Cascade. If I am misinformed I
am very badly deceived.
Our informant is well posted, and wo
have every reason to give full credence
to the above; more particularly for the
reason that the company ist rushing op
erations on both sides of the mountains.
Money for present use is being advanced
to tho company on tho strength of the
above information, which is already
more than ten days old. In connection
with recent operations it is proper to
state that tho company has been very
Suietly developing its coal property on
rreen river. Fully 250,000 tons are on
the dumps. The scene of operations is
at a point known as Jack's Fountain, on
Green river. Seattle Herald, 13th.

Wo do not observe that the multitudes

another in their eagerness to hear Butler.
Mr. Villard, in his" "statement' to tho
Northern Pacific stockholders, tells them
that ho "saved' their property. Next in
order should bo a "statement" to the
stockholders of tho Trancontinental in
forming them why he sacrificed their
property to save the .Northern Pacific.
The query on this point is tho more per
tinent from the fact that good money
was paid, at par, for Transcontinental
stock, while Northern Pacific stock was
simply divided by the "proprietors'
among themselves, and nothing ever was
paid on it. Orcgonian.
The territorial Republican convention.
which was held at Seattle last week, ;ras,
wo are free to say, a disgrace to tho par
ty. Its controlling men, who largely ob
tained their votes by proxies, appeared to
care nothing for the honest principles of
the Republican party, but appeared de
termined to make the most of their op
portunity. They evidently bartered and
traded whenever there was a chance. The
nomination of v man from east of the
mountains was an outrage npon the peo
ple of Poget Sound, to whom belonged
the nomination or the naming of tho can
didate. This hoggishness of the eastern
side should not bo forgotten. Olympia
California has about six months of
green grass in each year, while Oregon
has nearly eight; hence instead of bring
ing California butter to Portland we
should be shipping Oregon butter to San
Francisco I13' every steamer. Union and
Baker counties aro already great dairy
counties and export butter and cheese to
the Idaho mining towns, where they real
ize fair prices. And in these two counties,
until about four years ago, it was the
custom to breed for the shambles only,
and ignore the dairy altogether; but peo
ple have begun to find out that the con
dition of affairs to which we are fast set
tling down, requires a more thrifty sort
of menag incut and iuu-t bo prosecuted
with a view to saving the milk from tho
cattle as a means of securing the interest
on this coast. I'olh County llcmizer.
The wav to build up Oregon is not by
striking down the tariff which has proven
so beneficial to the country at large, but
to hold out inducements to capitalists to
imest their surplus wealth in manu
factures here, and thus get the benefit of
its wise provisions. There is abundant
capital seeking investment in various
parts of the country. There are rich
mines and magnificent water power in
Oregon awaiting the plastic touch of
capital to turn a steady stream of pros
perity upon tho farmers of the state in
exchange for their productions. The
proper way to bring the active and the
undeveloped wealth together is not by as
sailing the former, or antagonizing the
agencies to which it is indebted for its
existence, bat to demonstrate tho willing
ness of the people to welcome it in any
form, and to point out the magnificent
field presented in this new state for its
investment and growth. News.
We demand from congress tho prompt
and unconditional forfeiture of all pub
lic lands granted to railroad corporations
not earned in strict compliance with the
conditions of the granting act. This
demand is mado not as of favor, but as
of right. The homestead settler is held
to a strict accounting under tho law. Ho
must bring himself within its conditions,
must perform the stipulations of the act
under which the grant to him is made
before title can be obtained. The home
stead law is a grant to the general public
upon conditions specified in the act it
self. In principle it does not vary essen
tially from a land grant to a railroad
corporation. One is special, the other is
general, but both are based npon certain
conditions to be performed by tho
grantee. In the case of a homestead set
tler these conditions must be strictly
met. But what powers of reasoning is
the rule made to vary in tho case of a
railroad corporation ? Post-Intclligcnccr.
In years gone by Oregon has been an
indulgent pirent. To those who worked
she gave her reward; and those who did
not work seemed to pet along about as
well as those who did. Everybody pros
pered. High prices wero by no means
objectionable. Everybody was happy.
Times now are fhutting in a little and
tho means necessary to sustain life are
getting more interesting and valuable. A
dollar is now worth a dollar and it will
go farther than it ever went before. In
all this pressure there is a great lesson to
learn. We should go in debt as little as
possible unless we intend to pay it. To
a man who will work out a debt it is not
a bad thing to do. Many men will be in
debt; the3' prefer to be so. They will buy
a piece of properly and then work it out
and then another piece, and so on until
all their means are invested in this way.
Economy now is tho study. There is
plenty to do and the only way is to go
and do it hoping for better times. There
are many things we pay double more for
than they are worth in our markets.

OXE OF IKGEBSOL'S 8T0BIES.
Bob Ingersoll tells in private, though
a good story at his own expense, but
one which we see no reason should not be
enjoyed by the world at large. It seems
that while Ingersoll was in Cleveland,
soon after his successful legal fight for
tho star routers, a sort of anti-iobacco
crusade had been started in that city, and
a well-known Boston scientist was de
livering nightly lectures against the use of
tho soothing weed. This speaker invited
others to argue the question with him,
but, although the smokers were in tho
majority, tho Boston man invariably
proved too clover for the debaters brought
Availing themselves of Ingersoll's pres
ence, some of the friends begged the
great orator to take up the cudgels in be
half of the tobacco users; which he con
descended to do, more as a joke than for
any serious reason.
That evening the hall was jammed,
and, when tho prohibitionist requested
an answer to his arguments, Bob solemn
ly arose and said he would reply to the
statement of his eloquent friend by the
relation of a simple statement. He said:
"I was once attending to a mining case
in one of the wildest and most lawless
regions in Utah. A murder had recently
been committed by a notorionsthief, and
a committee of local vigilantes wore
watching for him at every cross-road.
Just after night fall I was riding back to
the town from tho mine, mounted on a
white horse. The vigilantes had received
information that the desperado in ques
tion would pass the very road the same
evening, also riding on a white horse.
Tho posse had ambushed themselves in
some chaparral, and as I camo down the
bridle-path they got ready to fire alto
gether for they waste no time on trials
in that section. Entirely unconscious
that half a dozen shotguns were sighting
my shirt-front, I stopped my horse,
and proceeded to light my cigar. Think
ing the light would give them a still bet
ter mark to shoot at, the concealed party
held their fire for a second. In that sec
ond the blaze of tho match reflected on
my features, revealing they were not
those of the man they awaited, and,
stepping out on the road, they congratu
lated me on my -narrow escape. And so,
ladies and gentlemen, if I hadn't the good
fortune to bo a smoker I wouldn't have
been here now."
"And you call that fortune?" grimly
added the anti-tobacco lecturer, after the
applause had subsided.
"Wasn't it?" inquired Bob, with a
"I don't see it,' thundered his oppo
nent. "If it hadn't been for that mis
erable cigar there would have been one
less lawyer in this world."
And amid the roar that followed, In
gersoll sat down, completely knocked out
in ono round.
TOO MAST PACIFIC RAILROVDS.
It has been reported that the St. Louis
and San Francisco, the Atchison, Topcka
and Santa Fe, and the Atlantic and Pa
cific, having bought the 212 miles of the
Mohave branch of the Southern Pacific
and got track rights over 382 miles more
to San Francisco, count on earning $10,
ODO.OOOfrom the through traffic. Last
year tho Central Pacific, which had the
whole of the transcontinental traffic ex
cept the Oregon and Washington busi
ness for three months, earned $8,302,016
from through traffic. Its haul was from
826 to 1,236 miles. The haul over tho new
line will bo from 2,115 to 2,450 miles, but
if any one supposes that the Central Pa
cific is going to givo any largo part of
tho California traffic, which it holds
in the hollow of its hand, as it were, we
think that he will find himself mistaken.
It has two roads to support, and will want
to give some traffic to the Cnion Pacific
and tho Chicago, Burlington and Quincy
(not to speak of the connections of its
Southern Pacific line, which has hereto
fore carried about three-fifths of the
freight), because they can give much to
it. The Atlantic and Pacific, which has
about one-fourth of the mileage in the
line between St. Louis and San Francisco,
is said to count on getting profit enough
out of the through traffic to pay the in
terest on the first mortgage bonds,
amounting to $787,680. This will re
quire net earnings of the whole line
amounting to $3,340,000. Half that
would probably come nearer to the re
sult of the first year's working. There
are now too many lines to the Pacific to
make it possible for any except those
which collect the traffic on coast bv a
system of railroads, as tho Central Pa
cific and the Oregon Railway and Navi
gation Company do, to get a support out
of the through traffic alone. New York
