A much needed improvement is in progress on Lafayette street in front of xfo. One's engine house. The StarbucI: is taking on some barrel ed salmon, the first shipment of the kind from Astoria to New York. She will also take the first shipment of Oregon fir to Gotham. D. W. Rush's warehouse, above ?.It. Coffin, was totally destroyed by fire last Mond&3' night. The fire caught from a dryer. There was considerable salmon stored m the warehouse which is a total loss, together with the building, as there was no insurance. Tho first mate of the Dora liluhm, loading lumber at Kinney's mill, had a narrow escape from a horrible death yes terday. In some .way he became en tangled in the rope that the donkey en gine was winding up and was being drawn up to the drum when tho rope slipped, releasing him. One of his legs was badly lacerated, but fortunately his injuries are comparatively slight. The Blaine and Logan club held an interesting meeting last evening with a full attendance. Several matters wore discussed, among others the ques tion of going to Portland to join in the grand whoop-np there, it being finally decided in tho negative. It was con eluded to make a thorough can vass of tho county, and lo meet next Friday evening to elect field officers and transact other business. The club has now about 150 members on the roll, has a reading room attached to the meeting hall where plenty campaign lit erature can be found. All are invited to call a t o rooms are open to the public every day. 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 tical execution. 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. At Frank F:ibrc's. Board for S22J30 a month. The best in the city. Dinner ft om 5 to 7.

Wo do not observe that the multitudes in the Northwest are trampling over one another in their eagerness to hear Butler. Standard. 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 Transcript. 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. Salem Tall:.

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 against him. 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 plaintive smile. "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.
