An Oregon young man has just
returned to his heme in Silverton,
after a tour of the world, lasting
seven years. A recital of his ex
perience would be very entertain
ing. He wandered throughout the
old world until the state of his fi
nances colled him to a halt, in
other words, until he was "dead
broke." At this time he was in
Judea, where he enlisted in the
English regiment and was sent in
Central Asia, from whence after
many wanderings, he has at last
found his way back to Oregon, the
land of his birth, which ho now
thinks is the most lovely spot on
Bank notes were issued in China
as early as the ninth century,
when the art of printing was un
known in Europe. These notes
have generally been redeemed, be
cause in China when a bank fails
all the clerks and managers have
their heads chopped off and thrown
in a heap along with the books of
the firm. And so it happened in
these good old barbarous times
that for the past 500 years not a
single Chinese bank has suspended
payment. Now that China is com
iug under the sway, of western
civilization, we have no doubt it
will have the Bame financial
troubles as its more civilized bank
ing brethren.
; The Populists themselves do not
seem to be free from the "ways
that are dark and the tricks that
are vain," for which tbey claim
that only the old parties "are pe
culiar," says the Jacksonville
Times. W. H. Breese, of Talent, j
who came near being elected reure'
sentative on the People's party
ticket at the last election, in a vig
orous article in the Ashland Record
claims that the primaries lately
held at Talent were "fixed." Verily,
it is sad tKfot these reformers of
political methods cannot dwell with
on another in unity, but must be
gin, to revile each other, after' the
manner of the wicked republicans
and democrats.
The Grants Pass Courier says:
"A female hobo stopped here a few !
days in 'hitting the road' south
ward last week. She camped with
five ot the male fraternity in the
Company's .woodpile and seemed
perfectly at home in her queer call
ing. She is about thirty-five years
of age and had the appearance of
a hard-worked farmer's wife. There
was nothing vicious looking about
her. When seen by the Courier
reporter she was seated inside a
square breakwind composed of tics
near the S. P. D, & L, warehouse,
eating a biscuit she had probably
begged somewhere in town. She
had an old newspaper spread on
her lap to catch the crumbs and
when she got through eating she
fiBhed out some fine-cut tobacco
and proceeded to prepare a cigar
ette. She hadn't much, to say.
W hen asked where she was going
she simply pointed and said
'south.' "

The few notes we send may moulder
in the waste-basket, and yet we are
bound to Inflict our scribbling upon
We left the land of Mossbacks and
Populhts Monday last,' arriving at
Wolf Creek Tuesday morning. W. C,
Is a mining town of some 150 inhabi
tants, a kind of headquarters tor min
ing men (and quartz boomers). . An
nssay ofliec in doing a thriving busi
ness. .
Leaving the town and our many
friends behind, we look the road for
Mt. Reuben. Seven miles down Wolf
Creek the road comes to an end at the
placer mines of J. C. Lewis. These
were a rich And but very spotted and
soon exhausted. Striking the Rogue
river trail a tramp of 4 miles brought
us to the placer claim of Dwight, Rice
A Co. This Is a new mine and from
all reports a paying one. Gold can be
seen lying on the bed-rnck where the
piping has been done. We saw two
ounces recently taken out of a small
spot. .
Here we tarried until Wednesday
morning, then took the trail once
more for the Mt. Four miles brings
us to Reuben creek, a coarse gold stream
on which are many paying claims.
Then came the tug of war, for 4
miles the trail stands at an angle of 45
degrees. At present the lasl 2 miles
are covered with 2 feet of enow. Near
the summit the camp of H. M. Mur
ray is to be seen. This is on claims lo
cated last spring by J. D. Bice and a
party of Albany gentlemen. Murray
has it bonded and is to run a tunnel
and develops the mine and if satislied
to pay for the same $30,000. He is
only working seven men at present,
sinking a shaft.
Over the Mt. on the Whiskey creek
side is located the celebrated Molly
Hill ledge, , One shaft is 60 feet, an
other 10 and from ten inches at the top
the ledge widens to 8 feet. On the
dumpgold Can be seen in any piece
and is said to be the best free milling
ore ever discovered in the state. The
mine is being developed by R. A.
Jones, of "Green Mountain" fame, who
bought or bonded it of the locator, J.
D. Rice. Here he has his wife, a
charming lady whose nearest lady
neighbor Is 6 miles away; but she is
perfectly content and Is as enthusiastic
oyer mining matters as her worthy
Partaking of a bountiful repast we
once more took the route for a return,
The ascent took hours but the
descent was made in 1J hours and the
only event of note was when our part
ner sailed through air and snow at
such a rate as to leave his pipe some
200 feet behind blm in a snow drift,
This necessitated some talk and a good
climb to get it.
Again we spend the night with
friend Rice, who bas his wife and two
charming daughters with him,
The next day we arrive at Lelund
only to learn the 8. P. is too poor to
afford a dully freight, and as the place
is too small to hold three full-grown
men over night, we jog along to Mer
lin, within 9 miles of Grants Pass,
Wishing to send a line to a friend we
Inquire for the P. 0. to find It J mile
out in the country at a ranche, and his
stock in haf consisted of four sheets
of writing paper. This is a saw-mill
town, and like all placeB of the kind
has poor buildings.
At night we learned a revival was
being hold ill the school building, and
thither we went bent on adventure
and we succeeded beyond our expecta
tions. We took with us a miner who
had not beun to church for 20 years,
and regretted our choice many times,
as we importuned him 35 times togn
with us back to the hotel but the fiend
seemed to delight in our misery and
only shook his head. The meetings
are conducted by a former eectiou-
hand and a gentleman from Wilder
vllle who came out to winter, bringing
Ills family and team with him for com
puny. One fellow told us he generally
brought them to church with him to
help. We asked which be brought,
the family or team; but he did not
seem to relish our attempt at a joke.
The audience consisted of 3 women, 7
girls, 8 men, 12 boys, aud was larger
than could be expected when we re
mark the meetings had been going on
three weeks. At last we were kindly
permitted to leave, a sadder but wiser
On Thursday we shook the granite
of Merlin, alias Jump-olT-Joe, from our
propellers aud boarding the train in a
light snow-storm reached Grants Pass.
This place has about two times the
population of Lebanon is a live town

Echo Answers "Who?
Editor Express: In accordance
with your kind offer to open the col
umns of the Express to all political
parties to discuss the political issues of
the day, I see that one "Old Party
Crank" has availed himself of this
generous offer.
The old crank makes a spluttering
attempt to be facetious, and how well
he has succeeded I will leave the pub
lic to judge.
There is one thing, however, that I
will say In behalf of O. P. C, and I
hope he will not take it as flattery. He
exhibits a quality of intellect far supe
rior to the average of those who still
cling to old party delusions.
I don't want to accuse "Old Party
Crank" of lying, so I will be modest
aud call it prevaricating. He offers no
argument in defence of his corrupt old
party, simply because he has nothing
to offer.
It is a noticeable fact that the more
enlightened of the old parties are ad
hering strictly to the principles as
taught by our forefathers, while the
ignorant are being blindly led on by
their old unscrupulous leaders, -intelligence
is fast falling In line with the
Populists while ignorance is lurking
behind, hence the inability of the g. o.
p. to cope with the Populists in publio
The leaders of the old parties who
have command of word or pen, have
no arguments to offer except protection
aud an honest(?) dollar on one side and
an houest(?) dollar and protection on
the other. In view of these facts, is it
any wonder that they h.ave to resort to
lying, blasphemy and sarcasm in order
to hold the skeptical of their followers
In line?
It is not my mission to provoke con
troversy on a subject in which my op
ponents are so utterly ignorant. Indeed
the most illiterate of the Populist par
ty can hold their own with the most
learned or tne lew who remain wltfi
the old parties, with one exception
only, and that exception is the inun
who, having more gall than brains and
sailing under the nom de plume of
"Old Party Crank," penned oft' that
master-piece of literature which will
surely find a place in the columns of
every republican newspaper in the
land. Oh! but didn't he jump for joy
when "Zeke" told him that the "boss
es" in Penn. had touched the button
and their slaves in answer had rolled
up a big republican majority! It was
then and there, while under the ex
hilarating influence of election news
and a paunch full of Bpuds, that the
"Old Party Crank" gave birth to the
crowning eftort of his life, which will
he handed down with pride to his pos
terity for many generations to come.
Allow me to congratulate you, "O. P,
C," upon the sudden greatness you
have attained. Kindly present my re
gards to "Zeke" poor fellow who,
for lack of protection ou "Pall River"
industries aud "Oregon Wool," has to
attend his Sunday school clothed in
blue overalls and a cottonade ooat. .
Yes, sir, protection protects, but who
does It protect? Echo answers, "Who?"
