The country is undoubtedly on
the eve of great changes in the rail
road world. The panic pricked th
bubble of inflated stocks and din
closed the weakness consequent up'
on too much transcontinental buil
ing. In the collapse that followed
capital was wiped out wholesale,
millions of property disappearing,
altogether through the full in value
of shares in railroad stocks and so
curities the country over. Between
this catastrophy and the rehabili
tation of these ureal enterprises on
a paying basis some time must
necessarily enBue for liquidation
and reorganization. That time is
rapidly Hearing ita end. The sale
of the Erie road, jut announced
means the reorganization of that
system, though the annouticenien
may be somewhat premature. J
I'ierpont Morgan has been at work
upon it, i.ut it has not been ex
ported the road would bo adjusted
to its new responsibilities bvfore
the first of the year, at the earliest
Morgan is said to represent the
Vanderbilt interests even more
than Cornelius Vanderbilt, audit
is expected that those interest!) will
bs ascendant in the Union Pacific
reorganization, which is in the
hands of the financial forces of the
country and cannot be much long
er delayed. Reorganization of the
Union Pacific, Northern Pacific
and Atchiusou corporations will, it
is thought, be effected by next
March. All these reorganizations,
while they liquidate an enormous
amount of debt, will bring out vast
sums of money which, since 1893,
have been withdrawn from investment.
Following upon this necessary
and healthy preliminary to success
ful business on a new basis, many
things are predicted. President
Spencer, of the Southwn railway,
which succeeds the old Richmond
Terminal, who is a partner of Mr.
Morcan, says that an enormous
growth is immediately before the
South in the development of its
great timber, coal and iron re
sources, and that plenty of capital
is ready in New York to build the
necessary railroads. The New
York fe New England railroad has
passed into such control as prom
ises to mobilize the entire railway
system of New England and put it
on a paying basis. While railway
men believe that it will be many
years before another railway to the
Pacific will be built, all agree that
much is to be done in the way of
branch lines. Mr. Morgan is quot
ed as saying that within the next
ten years every farm in the far
West will have a railway station
within five miles. Edward Atkin
son says mat enormous juvook-
ments of capital will be made with
in the next ten years in the con
struction of little railways which
will bring transportation almost to
the doors of every farmer in the
West. Mr. Depew says that in
five years the railroad will touch
all the greater farms of the West,
and be within easy reach of all the
smaller farmers. As a matter of
fact, New York capitalists are now
considering a number of proposi
tions for the building of 6uch feed
ers and with favorable disposition.
Another sign in the rail
road world is the safe passing of
the crisis concerning the use of
electricity. For a time it looted
as if the standard roads were going
to declare war on the trolley, and
sulk at its growing use and its in
roads on their earnings. They
have decided, rather, to utilize it
themselves to control the local
electric parallel and tributary lines,
equip branches with electric power,
use it in yard service, and be ready
to substitute it on main lines at the
earliest moment its feasibility
Salem Statesman: Oregon ought
to be proud of her newspapers. No
state in the Union can boast of as
good ones, taking into consider
ation the limited field, owing to the
comparatively undeveloped con
dition of the conn try and the sparse
The Oregonian is the ablest news
paper on this coast. It does not
print so great a volume ot matter
as the leading Ban Francisco, New
York or Chicago dailies, because it
does not draw patronage from such
vast and rich populations. But it
serves its readers with as complete
a resume of the general news of the
world as they do, in s presentable
shape, and it is edited with ability
far superior to the average of the
great dailies of the country. New
York has only one daily that com
pares with it in profoundness of
editorial discussion, the Sun;
Chicago has only one, the Triune;
and San Francisco has none.
What are called in journalistic
parlance the "country newspapers,"
too, of Oregon are much above the
average, very lew towns in vne
Eastern states of the Bize of Pendle
ton, Baker City, The Dalles, Al
bany, Eugene and Koseburg main
tain daily papers. Yet all"tnese
keep up creditable publications
issued every day, some of them pre
pared and edited with much ability,
and all of them showing commend
able enterprise. The Pendleton
East Oregonian editorials are al
ways able and instructive. So are
those of The Dalles Chronicle, the
Astorian at Astoria, the Albany
Democrat and Herald, and nearly
all the balance of the ambitious
dailies issued from Oregon's grow
ing little citbs.
In the service ot modesty, we
will pa68 over Salem in this die
cussion, only mentioning the fact
that there are many cities as large
as this in various sections of the
country that are satisfied with news
papers only of hebdomadal issue.

Nearly all the newspapers of Or
egon that have legitimate fields of
usefulness haye been improving
even during the dull times of the
past few years. We suspect that
they have not reaped great profits,
but they will be in condition to en
joy some of the substantial benefits
of the returning good times. Still
the profitable times of a good pap
er are generally in the future. Any
newspaper worthy of the name
uses every resource at its hands in
the betterment of its service to the
public. We believe this is es
pecially true of the leading jour
nals of Oregon. Their dividends are
mostly for "glory." The growing
condition of their fields will make
this a necessary condition for a
long time. We are willing for Or
egon to be judged by her news
papers. If all other enterprises
will keep pace with their progress,
we will be swift in the race for
greatness as a state and a people.

A Jury of Women.
A Kentucky judge, Mr. C. San-
fley, has announced that he will
trv a oendine suit for breach of
promise before a jury of women.
The parties to the suit are W. C.
Stivers, of Girrard county, Ken
tucky, plaintiff, against Miss Kath
erine West. He avers that he is
and has been ready and willing to
fulfill the contract to marry and
that she refuses to consummate the
same. The judge says that under
the existing law he can do so, and
believes that the plaintiff will se
cure as fair treatment as a woman
would before a jury of men.
