(Delivered by Father Donnelly
at BaDdon.)
We boast, and justly ao, that we
are ooe of the greatest of the na­
tions, if not the greatest nation on
the faoe of the earth.
From the
discovery of the American continent
until now, America has been the
home of the liberty loving and of
the oppressed of the earth, and the
United States of America has by
th* perfection of her fundamental
law, by the wisdom of her adminis­
trations by the harmonious co-oper­
ation of her co-ordinate branches,
set the standard of governmental
perfection for the whole world.
The aspiration for freedom, for
liberty, delivered the colonies from
subjection and crowned them with
sovereignity under laws of their
own making.
The United States
have grown from thirteen to forty-
five and tbe essence of their strength
is union.
To divide was to dis­
honor, to destroy, and when the at­
tempt was made to do this, it seems
that the mercy of God to untold
generations provided the man, in­
spired the brain and nerved the
hand to avert suoh a horrible dis­

Dear Sir: A* I know you to be
sincerely interested in the advance­

Oregon, and as I feel you can,
through the medium of your valu­
able paper, lead added impetus to
any particular point which may be
worthy of public notice, and which
is striving for recognition, I will
this week devote the space you re­
serve for the Hazlewood Co. to a
few words about the Coos Bay
Last woek I had the good fortune
lo be one of the Portland delegates
attending the Merchants’ and
Farmers’ Congress held in North
Bend, Oregon, and that visit has
impressed upon me the importance
to the state of Oregon of deepening
the entrance to Coos Bay and mak­
ing the harbor accessable to vessels
of large tonnage.
Of the harbor
as it exists today, I would say, al­
though 1 have seen more commod­
ious bodies of water, I have never
in my travels—covering a good por­
tion of the four divisions of the
world— visited a harbor lying as
near the oceau and at the same time
so completely land locked, assuring
absolute safety to the smallest craft,
no matter how violent a storm be
raging outside. Its contiguity to
the ocean also minimizes towage
From the steps of the nation's
capitol, 4th of March, 1861, this
man, risen from the common peo­
ple to the highest rank among the
rulerB of tbe earth, said: “ I hold
that, in contemplation of universal
law, and of tbe constitution the

Perpetuity is implied, if not ex­
pressed, in the fundamental law of

to execute all the express provisions
of our national constitution and the
Union will endure forever.”
years of struggle and strife would

The pity of it, that such a man ,in
the hour of glorious aud magnan­

a martyr at the hands of a misera­

Our glorious pesoe was shrouded
in dismal gloom —but as a nation
we have emerged from the most des­
olate darkness of slavery and war,
into the full noon of freedom and
peace. And in the midst of our
glory and power the American peo­
ple should never forget the cost.
Let them then as tbe yearB roll by,

the flowers of a nation’s grateful af­
