ON THE NEUALE3I.
A Letter From R. D. Cole, cf Columbia
County.
Ed. Mist: A short lime ago I re
ceived a visit from Dr. A. E. Kinney,
member of the Astoria chamber of
commerce. He has just returned
from Galiforuia, where ho has been iu
consultation with some of the lead
ing railroad men of the Pacific coast
and also of eminent coal men, and
thoy have been talking up the scheme
of bnilding a railroad through tho
Xehalcm valley from Forest Grove to
Astoria. The doctor stated to the
Central Pacific people, and also to
Cornwall & Co., that there was an
abundance of coal in this valley, and
this fact they disputed, and said
there was no coal hero that was
worth noticing, and Dr. Kinnoy in
formed them that he was able to sub
stantiate the fact, and Ihey asked
him to go and make u personal exam
ination of tho coal veins and report,
and it thoy were of sufficient thick
ness to pay for working that they
would send men to look ovor the
ground and to test the coal. So tho
doctor came here to xny place and
asked me to accompany him to Peb
ble creek. "Ve went np to Mr. Thos.
Adams' and asked him to go along
as a guide. "We rode on horseback
to where the trail turned off from
Uk1 old road that leads to Quick's
mill, aud then took the trail to Peb
ble creek.
But the doctor had sprained one
of his ankles very severely and could
not go farther than tho creek, and
we left him there aud went on a hunt
for tho coal. Wo found plenty of
iloat coal in the creek, and some very
chunks, but did not find the vein.
We brought out some very fine speci
mens. This was on tho we3t fork of
tho Pebble. Tho vein is two feet
thick. We returned to Mr. Adams'
house, and Dr. Kinney started for
Astoria the next day. no asked
me to go back as soon as con
venient and procure a guide that
knew of the location of the big vein
on the east fork of tho Pebble. So
I went back last week and got Mr.
Israel Spencer to go with me, and
we went to the big vein, whieh wo
found without any difficulty, I meas
ured it and fouud it to be eight feet
eight inches iu thickness. A hole
has been blasted down Bix feet deep,
and no bottom found to tho coal yet
Tho wholo bed of tho creek, clear
across, is solid coal and of goodqual-
ity- . . . .
1 have mauo a report or. my invest
igations to Dr. Kinney, end it will
bs furnished to the San Francisco
papers for publication. lTho report
appeared in The Weekly Asxorian
of Sept. 12.
It is generally known that thoso
railroads in this country that pene
trate tho coal fields are tho best pay
ing roads in the world, and the coal
mines of Pebble creek, iu the upper
Xehalem, and those at Onion Peak,
near the month of the river, togeth
er with our inexhaustiblo snpply of
fine timber, will be very potent fact
ors toward inducing capitalists to
build a railroad through this valley.
Tho timber supply on tho Nehalem
rivor and its tributaries is jhe most
exteusivo in the whole northwest por
tion of the United States that is yet
untouched, and this route, between
the system of railroad in tho Willam
ette valley and deep water at Astoria,
is one of the most important routes
in Oregon. There is one drawback
that has placed Columbia connty aud
its people at o disadvantage, this
county aud Clatsop havo never been
sufficiently advertised, aud when em
igrants come to Portland, and scrape
au acquaintance with that board of
immigration thoy are never sent to Co
lumbia and Clatsop counties, and it is
hardly known outside of Oregon that
there are such places. It seems tho
ana cf that board to send immigrants
as far down the Oregon & California
railroad as possible, or over tho en
tire lino of the O. R. & N. company's
roads, in order to bleed them as deep
as possible. I foresaw what would
result from the formation of tho
board, and refused to support tho
bill appriating the state money for
such a purpose, unless tho railroad
companies would put up half the
amount, and when two members of
the last legislature were selected to
compose that board, one was taken
from the south end of the O. & C.
railroad and one from tho east end
of the O. P. & N. road, and those
two companies are dividing the
spoils
And if iu the future, Portland
should persist in her present course,
then eastern Oregon will become
tributary to Omaha, as it almost is at
the present tiino, on account of no
markets and no manufacturing in our
own metropolis, and whenever 0. &
C. and C. & O. roads aro connectod
(and tho day is not far distant) then
southern Oregon will deal directly
with San Francisco, nud then tho
greatness of Portland will be a thing
of tho past; and if the Central Paci
fic railroad company get control of
the O. fe C. road, which they are
bound to do, then tho extension to
deep water at Astoria is an assured
fact. Astoria is a better market al
ready for us than Portland, and near
ly all of our beef stock from this part
of the country goes direct to Astoria.
While Portland has always opposed
the forfeiture of this land grant, and
has hooted down the idea of a rail
road through this valley, Astoria has
been sending petitions and memori
als to congress, calling for the for
feiture of this grant, and is doing all
in her power to-day to induco capi
talists to take hold of this route and
build the road.

THE 4-HERALD ON SILVER.
When old John Brown was buried,
Wendell Phillip3, in delivering his
funeral oration, alluded to tho enter.
priso of the New York Herald in se
curing a telegraphic report of his tri
al, and exclaimed: "Nowl see why
God Almighty in his divine wisdom
permits the Now York Herald to ex
ist!" So people of the present day,
reading tho Herald articles on silver,
and noting the idiotic folly with
which the same dreary nonsense is
iterated and reiterated day after day,
realize that the effect must bo pre
cisely the opposite of that which the
editor wants, and are inclined to be
lieve that even the New York Herald
may have its use3.
It is no disgrace to a man to be ig
norant of political economy but there
is no call for those who have
tho misfortune to bo ignorant to
parade their ignorance. A man may
bo a respectable citizen, a devout
churchman and a good father of a
family, and yet knows so little that
ho believes the stoppage of silver
coinage would put up wages, a3 it3
continuation will pi't them down.
But why should he make himself
ridiculous by saying so? An editor
may bo so hopelessly unconscious of
what is going on around him a3 to
declare that the champions of silver
are working in tho mtorest of some
silver miners iu Colerado: but why
write himself down an ass by saying
so? A writer may really think that
if the Bland bill is not repealed gold
will become ''as scarce as hens'
teeth;" but when people aro so un
fortunate that their minds are dis
torted to this extent, thoy gen
erally hold their tongues, and
no ono knows what fools they
arc. A hireling of the eastern bank
interest may bo so maladroit as to
argue that a silver dollar will "not
buy a dollar's worth of anything,"
when he can discover the contrary at
tho nearest grocery or dry goods
store, but tho wonder is that sensible
men like tho majority of oastern bank
presidents can fancy that their cause
is helped by such gabble.
We notice by the telegraphic dis
patches that the Washington corre
spondent of the Herald has come to
the rescue of tho editorial department,
and informs it in plain words that it
is wasting its breath, as there is no
prospect of the repeal of tho silver
coinage act. Ve have been saying so
auy time theso three or four mouths.
When the New York papers stop
their attempts to create a panic wo
may expect gold to react from its late
advance, and tho two metals to draw
nearer together.
An injured knee is not au knee-sy
thing to cure, unless yon have St. Ja
cobs Oil at hand. In that case the
task is a very simple one.
We want to warn our people to
look well to their homesteads. "Con
structive residence" is a thing of the
past, and in order to prove up every
requirement of the law must be strict
ly complied with. Besidenco, accord
ing to late decisions, means au actual
living upon and improvement of tho
land, and no other definition will bo
accepted at Oregon City hereafter.

"Well madam1 said a fashionable
physician to a wealthy lady patient,"if
you don't like my prescriptions, per
haps yon had better try Parker's Ton
ic, or "some other quack stuff." "You
don't mean it Doctor," sho answered,
"bnt your advice may bo good for all
that. Sometimes what you call
'quack stufT is the best aud most sci
entific medicine, after all." She got
a bottlo of Parker's Tonic and it
enred her of neuralgia arising from a

told her friends and now they all keep
