THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF GILLIAM
DEATH OF JAS. G. BLAINE.
January, 1893, will be remem
bered in history as a month of re
markable mortality among great
- and famous men. James G. Blaine
died at his home in Washington
Friday last, at 10:45 a. m. In the
death of Mr. Blaine the republican
party loses its most distinguished
and capable leader. He had sturdy
friends and unrelenting enemies,
but friends and enemies alike agree
that he occupied a conspicuous p6
sition in the constellation of Amer
ican etatesmen. History will vin
dicate his right to that honorable
distinction, for it would be impos
sible to recite the events which
threw this nation into chaos in the
early '60s, or to name the men who
molded public opinion during the
five years when the country sum
moned a superhuman courage, and
rebuilt the Union on the graves of 1,
000,000 heroes, or to review the slow
processes which, like a hot fire, have
Bince welded the Btates into a har
monious whole without referring
to Jas. 6. Blaine as one of the fore
most in the group of giants whose
work is recorded in that strange
chapter of our history.
Concerning his death, Governor
Pennoyer says; "The nation owes
Blaine a debt which I think it is
not aware of. President Harrison,
during his administration, always
carried a ehip'on his shoulder and
appeared to be doing his level best
to involve us in war with foreign
nations, and it was through Blaine's
diplomacy alone that a conflict
with Chili was avoided and com
plications with other nations peace
able adjusted. The Maine states
man - was certainly the brainiest
man in his party and in the United
BEWARE OF THEM.
Attorneys in Washington are sen
ding power-of-attorneys to all per
sons who have located and proved
up on the even sections of govern
ment land within the limit of the
Northern Pacific grant, asking that
they be filled out and returned.
These ' attorneys offer for 25 per
cent of the money collected to
bring suit in the court of claims and
to recover the $1.25 per acre extra,
charged by the government for
these lands. As matter stands at
present no Such suit can be pros
ecuted, nor would the government
pay back this money. It is quite
probable that congress will In the
very near future pass a bill author
izing the return of this excess mon
ey, but, until it does, neither the
court of claims nor the Washington
attorneys can restore it. These legal
sharks, anticipating such action on
the part of congress, have simply
put up this job to divert one-fourth
ot the money to be returned to their
own pockets. They will do nothing
to earn it, and will only have to no
tify the department to pay them the
one-fourth of each amount for which
they held a power-of-attorney. The
best thing to do in the, premises is
to do nothing, and let the Washing
ton attorneys do likewise.
Tslr. Cleveland? friends say he is
not as rich as generally Bupposed,
but they are unable to estimate his
wealth. JIis income, they state,
has been $25,000 a year since his
retirement from the presidency, and
this is considered a snug income for
a tariff reformer who was not mak
ing more than $2500 a year a dozen
years ago. During,- the last four
years he has lived easily, fished a
good deal, hunted wild game and
politicians and had a first-rate time.
St. Taul Globe.
A bill is before the Ohio legis
lature to abolish capital punish
ment and confine murderers for life
in the penitentiary instead. Such
a law would be more humane and,
under proner regulation and restric-
titms of the pardoning power, more
:;( cial to society than capital
THE COMING CITIES CON
DON IS O NE OF THEM.
A study of Oregon's map permits
of many conclusions. The more we
gaze at it and study its formation
and opportunities, the prouder we
feel. With' an area of 96,030
square miles or 61,459,200 acres, we
wonder that our population is not
over 313,767, as given at the last
census, or 350,000 at a liberal figure.
There is one peculiarity that to a
degree, accounts for this when we
compare the map of Oregon with
that of California or Washington,
says the Portland Telegram.
The difference exists in this: Or
egon has only one city of 10,000 in
habitants, while Washington has
three, and California has seven.
Our sister state to the north has
Spokane as a center of all its vast
eastern area, while Seattle and Ta
coma are the enterports of its west
ern half. California has San Fran
cisco and Oakland as its center,
while to the south are San Jose, San
Diego, Fresno and Los Angeles,
and farther north Stockton .and
Sacramento According to this plan
Oregon should have a city of 20,
000 people at Baker City or Pendle
ton, and one of 30,000 at Eugene or
Roseburg, while Salem and Albany
should be above the 15,000 or 20,
000 notch. ; ' .
; These conclusions are no idle
figuring. Who can say that South
ern Oregon is not as capable of sup
porting a metropolis as Southern
California? What more has that
section to make Los Angeles have
60,000 people than the southern
part of this state to have a city of
at least 50,000? Looking at Eastern
Oregon we see no material reason
why it should not possess a city as
populous as Spokane. Consider
ing the favorable location and great
resource back of it, Condon is in a
fair way to become the metropolis
of Eastern Oregon wjthin the next
ten years, or sooner. It is plain
that, with our reach of nearly 400
miles from north to south and from
east to west respectively, we should
have more than one town that
could realy be called a progressive
city. , We cannot expect in many
generations to be a Massachusetts,
where large cities are found every
ten miles, but we can hope that
within a decade we shall be blessed
as a state with six cities aside from
Portland having a population in
dividually of 20,000 and more.
A German paper of San Francisco,
opposed to this country prohibiting
foreign immigration, 6ays: "The
danger of overcrowding this coun
try cannot be held to be very alarm
ing, at least for the next 200 year's,
when we compare the number of
inhabitants to the square mile in
the United States with that of some
foreign countries. Belgium has 530
persons to the mile, England and
Wales 515 persons and France 200,
while in the United : States the
square mile is aecupied only by 18
and California by 8 persons in the
average. The comparison becomes
still more striking when'we consid
er the vastness of our natural re
sources and the limited wealth of
the countries named in this con
nection." ; The holders of the forfeited lands,
whether actual residents or other
wise, are jubilant over the passage
of the act extending the timefor pay
ment to January 1, 1894. This act
will benefit both classes of settlers
alike. It will also prove beneficial
to the country at large, for large
sums of money will thereby be re
tained here which would otherwise
have been sent away to enrich the
government coffers. During a year
like this when cash is not very
plentiful, we appreciate the benefit
of the extension all the more. Our
representatives at Washington de
serve credit for rushing the measure
through both houses so rapidly.
A missionary lately retu rned
from Africa, after years among the
heathen, where his skin had remain
ed whole, a.nd upon reaching Omaha
was hit and badly wounded with
sandbag. His yearning to be back
among the comparatively gentle
savages is only natural.
Will find it to their interest to corre
spond with uie, especially holders of fil
ings dated prior to 1885 and includinft
that year, I plant timber trees all ages
up to six years, so you can make proof.
