WEDNESDAY..... AUGUST 3. 1S85
A HAWKEYEPS OPINION.
TAiiKiNa about what ho saw out
here tho editor of the Montezuma,
Iowa, Republican, says:
"We think tho people of Oregon
and Washington territory make a
great mistake by wanting only those
with means to go there. The wealthy
settle down in tho towns and cities
and lire at ease and do but little to
develop the country. That country
needs the industrious laboring man
who is not afraid to take off his coat
and go to work. Labor will do more
to develop the great resources of the
northwest than wealth, for labor is
the source of all wealth. Iowa would
never have attained her present great
ness had it not been for the sturdy
pioneers, poor financially, but rich in
indomitable pluck and physical man
hood and these are they who will
convert tho rich and fertile valleys of
the Pacific northwest into happy
homes and eventually into rich and
prosperous communities. That coun
try needs labor far more than it does
wealthy nabobs. The poor man who
is industrious stands a better show
there than here if he has the inde
pendence to look outfor himself;
still they advertise out there for "im
migrants with means" to settle up
the country, and this is tho very class
that don't have to work, and as long
as they depend on such people, the
rich mines will go undeveloped, the
fertile valleys will remain sparsely
settled and their majestic forests will
continue to nod leisurely on tho
mountain side. With all their pos
sibilities they ship their butter, pork
and eggs into that country from
the ''states,'" as they speak of
the east We ate Iowa butter at Se
attle, and away down in southern Or
egon they fed us egg3 that had been
shipped there from Fairfield, Iowa.
Chickens aro worth from six to eight
dollars per dozen, hogs aro selling
there now for 8 per hundred and
their cured meats aro shipped from
Chicago. These things ought all to
bo produced there. As a fruit coun
try there is none better, yet there are
people who have lived there for years
who do not raise anything in the fruit
line. It is true they raise great crops
of wheat out there, but there is not
much profit in that. Diversified
farming is needed to make it profita
ble. The labor problem is a great
question for tho people out there.
The Chinese are thero in all their
glory, and if any of our readers have
ever entertained the idea that they
are a persecuted set, wo are satisfied
a visit would change your mind.
They will -nork and that is all the
good you can say of them. They
stick to their heathenish customs and
their habits are simply disgusting.
They can live on two bits a week,
consequently they can save more
money at 50 cents a day than a white
man at 3. They have no business
in this country. They don't belong
to the typo of manhood that America
wants, consequently the laws restrict
ing their immigration ought to be
rigidly enforced, and if there was
some way of getting rid of those that
are now here it would bo a good
The Pendleton Tribune says a Mr.
Austin of that place, proposes to give
bonds to the amount of $50,000 that
he will put a steam tug and flat boats
on Snake river and carry the present
crop of wheat from that section of
country to Ainsworth so that it can
be sent east. He agrees to have his
boats ready in sixty days, and to
move the crop in ninety days there
after. Ho will carry wheat from any
point on the river to Ainsworth for
3.333 cents per ton. The price from
Ainsworth to Duluth is $8 per ton,
making 11.33 per ton to reach
a market where wheat is now worth
ninety-five cents per bushel. It is
the estimate of Mr. Austin that tho
farmers will make ten cents per bush
el by shipping over this route. All
that he asks of them is 100,000 bushels
of wheat at the market rate guaran
teed as freightage. He will run ten
flat boats, which will carry 100 tons
each, and make the round trip in five
days. This is worthy the attention of
journals published on "the Columbia
river of commerce."
The statement for the first month
of the new fiscal year shows an al
leged reduction in the public debt of
8,662,790, against about $4,000,OGO
for July, 1884. The reduction for the
month just closed does not affect the
principal of the bonded debt, and as
a matter of fact there has been no re
duction whatever in tho sense that
the general reader would suppose in
reading the official announcement
of tho government's fiscal operations
for July. The reported reduction
was obtained by payment of interest
on the debt that is to say, during
the month of July interest due and
payable and that accrued amounted
to a certain sum,which was of course
added to the treasury obligations,
and that amount, about S8,000,000,
was paid, leaving tho principal of tho
debt in precisely the same condition
as on Juno 30th.
These is a man in Wisconsin whom
some of the railroad kings Bhould get
hold of. The fact that he is in state
prison won't be much of an objection,
as railroad kings aro supposed to
have governors and judges under
their thumbs. This man, in the
space of three months, organized
three canal companies, and floated
out $90,000 worth of stock at S700.
He organized two mineral spring
companies, and got rid of $17,000
worth of stock for $359. He organ
ized a sanitarium, and gave away
$27,000 worth of stock for $225. He
organized a water-power company,
paid dividends beforo a dam was
built, and came out $1,120 ahead.
He was organizing a railroad com
pany, and was about to call in a cap
ital of $50,000, when tho law grabbed
him and shut him up. The man, if
properly coached, has a great future
A Chicago lawyer named Turnbull
has surprised the political and liter
ary public with an article in the
Nineteenth Century showing that
the English government is really
democratic, with the commons dom
inating the queen and the lords, while
the United States government is
really aristocratic. The president's
veto power equals two-thirds of the
legislators, and the senate, not popu
larly elestive, fairly holds the repre
sentatives in captivity, while the
supremo court can set aside all stat
utes if so disposed.
The failure of tho government
steamer Alert, which returned dis
abled to St. John, Newfoundland, the
other day, to penetrate tho ice of
Hudson straits, is regarded as a seri
ous blow to the scheme by which it
is proposed to establish a summer
route via Hudson bay and straits to
Europe for tho shipments of the pro
ducts of tho northwest territories.
Tho Alert was sent out expressly to
determine the feasibility of the pro
ject, and those who cherished it have
abandoned all idea of its practicabil
ity. The Oregonian mistakes earnest
ness for warmth. Any newspaper in
discussing current topics must dis
play a certain amount of fervor in
the expression of its thoughts if the
expression amounts to anything.
'"Still harping on mine uncle," tho
Oregonian says, "when it is fonnd
that money can be mado by loading
at Astoria vessels will be loaded
there." Money for whom? Ship
pers? The chief of the bureau of statis
tics reports the total value of imports
of merchandise during the year end
ing June 30, 1885, was $577,476,850, a
decrease of $90,220,843 compared with
the preceding year. Tho exports of
merchandise for thoyear ending Juno
30, 1885. were $741,893,GS3, an increase
of $138,074 over the preceding year.
It is stated by a practical New York
book publisher, who has been in
Washington lately, that Miss Cleve
land's share of the profits from the
sale of her book will, very probably,
range from $40,000 to S50.000.
