THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF GILLIAM COUNTY, OREGON. THE ISLANDS IN DISPUTE. The Sandwich Islands are situated at nearly an equal distance between the shores of America and Japan, between 19 deg. and 27 deg. north latitude, about 2100 miles from San Francisco. There are fifteen of them, but only eight are inhabi ted or inhabitable. The eight inhab ited islands have a combined area of 6740 square miles, Hawaii being the largest, containing an area of 4210 Bquare miles. The islands were dis covered January 18, 1778. It is stated upon apparently .; good au thority that at that time' they con tained a population of 400,000, but the population has since then been constantly decreasing. In 1823 it was less than 150,000; in 1832, 130,313; in 1836, 108,579; in 1849, 84,163; in 1853, 71,019;' in in 1860, 67,979; in 1876, 57,985 5916 of whom were Chinese, 4561 whites, and the census of 1890 shows the population to have been 90,000, of which 34,436 were natives, 6180 half castes, 15,301 Chinese, 12,360 Japanese, 8602 Portuguese, and 5616 other foreigners. This continued decrease has been at tributed to the dissolute habits of the native population. Until comparatively recent period mar riage existed among them only in name, and is not now much better. Children were brought up for the most part by others than those who begot them. - Abortion was common and children were regul arly put to death during the first year of their existence. The ua tive population has decreased over 90 per cent, since the discovery of the island. By the census of 1390 it was but little more than one- third of the total population, and it is probably less than one-third today. Of the total trade of the islands 91.18 is with the Unitd States. The principal productions are sugar and rice. Of the plantations grow ing these products Americans own 74.17 per cent. These figures show that we have a good right to take the Sandwich Islands under our protection. Dalles Unronicle: It is now known to be a fact that a new freight schedule has been adopted by the Union Pacific system east from Portland over the Pacific di vision Portland saw that some' thing had to be done to hold her trade with Eastern Oregon, and has succeeded in accomplishing the adoption of this new schedule. It is not yet : positively known what reduction has been made. What Pendleton now wants, says the Tribune, is a new freight schedule from the East, and she and Walla can get it if concerted action is ta ken. There is no reason why Spo kane can have her freight delivered 20c on the hundred cheaper over the Union Pacific system than Pen dleton and Walla" Walla, and the two latter cities ought to rise up in their might and show this company what virtue there, is in the Inter state Commerce Law. .- A great many people do not un derstand the object in the world's fair souvenir (pronounced soov neer) half-dollars being sold for $1 each. The object is this: Con gress Voted $2,500,000 to the fair. The Faie Directory asked for $5, 000,000. Congress compromised by giving half the amount, and at the request of the Fair managers, au thorized the issue of the appropria tion in the special form. The lat ter then determined to get the $5, 000,000 needed by selling the half dollars as souvenirs at II each, and all of them will no doubt be dispos ed of. ' yueen victoria miorms us that she j y. ........ .... is worth 25,000.000, exclusive of land interests. This showing dem- enstrates the value of economy and ! ,M ' the wisdom oi sticking to a good ! ij-. J. j Governor Pennoyer has . very properly vetoed Durham's bill to amend the Australian ballot law. His veto reads: "To the House of Representatives: House bill No. 175, amendatory of the election law, is herewith returned with my disapproval. The present election law has been in operation only two years. It has secured that which every citizen should desire the se crecy and sanctity . of the ballot The citizens of Oregon have become familiar with - its provisions, and objections plausible at the time of its enactment are fruitless now, af ter a successful trial. Although doubtless not intended, the effect of the change proposed by this bil" would be to destroy, in a measure, the secrecy of the ballot, and to af ford an opportunity for vote buy ing. The result it is most certain would be desired neither by the legislature nor the people. I veto the bill' - Oregon appears to be suffering from an epidemic of extravagance. Shall we ever see the day when the legislature will 6et itself to work to reduce the people's taxes? -fit costs the people altogether too much to be governed. Not only in Oregon but in Washington there are too many officials and they get too much pay for the work they do, The pay would not be too much if they really had enough to do to keep them busy. Consolidation of offices and retrenchment all along the line is needed in both states. Seattle Telegraph. Cleveland's cabinet is now com plete, as follows: Walter Q. Gresh am of. Illinois, secretary of state John G. Carlisle of Kentucky, sec retary of the treasury; Daniel S Lamont of New Nork, secretary of war; Hilary A. Herbert of Ala bama, secretary of the navy; Hoke Smith of Georgia, secretary of the interior; J. Sterling Morton of Ne braska, secretary of agriculture Richard Olney of Massachusetts attorney-general; Wilson S. Bissel of New York, postmaster-general. The funniest picture of all ap pears in the last issue of Puck. It represents the g. o. p. elephant pros' trate on the ground, dead. Harri son, cleaver in hand, is on the body, performing an autopsy; Reid stands by weeping. Out of the hole cut in the side is protruding Mc Kinley with his bill. The legend is, "Died from swallowing an utter ly indigestible object." The follow ing is the verdict of the Whig par ty: "Strangled to death trying to swallow the fugitive slave act.' G. Cleveland will begin his da ties tomorrow, March 4th, as pres identof the grandest and most pow' erful nation under the sun. The entire country will literally trem- t 1 ' '1. ji ' me unaer ine roar oi cannon, over the great event. The experience will not be altogether new to G ro ver, as he has been, run through the same mill once before. lhe bill to abolish the present system of collecting taxes passed both houses and is now a law. It does away with the necessity of the sheriff visiting every precinct in the county for the purpose of collect ing taxes, and hereafter all persons must call at the sheriffs office to pay their taxes. Oregon now has one new county created by the legislature. Its name is Lincoln, and the principal places in it are Newport, Yaquina, Toledo, Waldport and Alsea, tak ing quite a slice out of Benton county. This makes 32 counties in the state. ' '. , The man who attempts to do bus iness without advertising has been aptly- compared to a young fellow winking'at a pretty girl in the dark. He may know what he is doing, but nobody else does. Gilliatn county will have to strug gle along for awhile yet without an artesian well, the governor haviriel vetoed the artesian well bill. - i A vei7 poor way to build a towr to raise the price on lots ev inue a new house goes up, sna the Amity Popgun. St. Taul Globe: The bill appro priating $100,000 for our exhibitat the world's fair passed both houses and became a law. This gives Min nesota $150,000 with which to make a respectable appearance before the world. The sum is none too much. It will prove to be money well in vested. Our state is not any too well advertised, and this is the op portunity of its existence. We need more farmers, more mechanics and more capitalists. In short, there is 'plenty of room here for more good men of every class. And then we need a broader market for our products of every kind. It is un necessary to offer an argument to prove the potency of advertising. Everybody possessed of a grain of intelligence knows its power. A "fifty-cent" exhibit would do us more harm than good. If we are to reap any benefit from our effort in that direction, our exhibit mast make an attractive showing .and to make such among the mammoth presentations which mny other states are preparing to make, it will cost every cent of this large ap propriation. We had far better make no showing than anything less than what $150,000 will afford 118. ' . NOTICE FOE PUBLICATION. Land Officb at Tb Dau.es, Ob., Jan. 26, 1R93.
