Editor - and Proprietor.
The strike still continues and
docs not look as bright for a settle
ment as it did week ago. Of
course every one has a theory
alnmt the late strike, and there are
about as many different theories as
there are persons. The first man
you meet will attribute it to one
cause, the next man will see it in a
different light, and so it goes until
each person has satisfied himself.
The sympathies of one are with
the strikers, tne sympaimes 01
another with the railroads, while
others blame both and see causes
lying beyond the present conten
tion. It is hard to tell what the
out come will be. Both sides seem
to be confident, of success and it is
evidently a fight to a finish.
any one can do is merely predict
what the out come will be for
while one side has the advantage
in one respect the other side has it
in another. ' :
Sympathizers with the strikers
are lond in the their comdemnation
of the government for calling out
the troops to put down the rioters.
The strikers had a perfect right to
quit the employ of the railrroadB,
and had they' gone no further
government troops, nor even state
or city officers, wonld have been
called out, but when they resorted
to violence and anarchy to prevent
the railroads doing their accustom
ed service to the public it became
necessary to call out officers, and
when they were 'unable to cope
with the situation it was necessary
to call out government troops. The
strikers are the cause of the whole
trouble and have forced the gov
ernment to the action taken, and
there is no one to blame but them
There seems to be a mistaken
idea among patrons of the public
schools that if they are unable to
purchase books for their children
that the latter are debarred trom
the advantages of attending school.
Such is not the case, however.
Under the law, upon proper rep
resentation of the fact that the
parents are unable to purchase
books for their children, the direc
tors of the district are required to
furnish the same from the funds
belonging to the district. Jack
herself upon the good behavior of
her people. It is the one state
west of the Rockies which has not
been the scene of disorder and
violence. : The strike tide has
flowed and ebbed without leaving a
visible sign of its presence in Ore
gon. We have stayed at home and
attended to business, -while other
communities have been in upheaval
and confusion. Tbe sum and sub
stance of it all is that there are
many worse places than Oregon,
and but few better.
Another star is to be added to
the American flag; another state
will be born to tbe Union as soon
as the president signs the bill for
the admission of Utah. Since
Idaho, Wyoming and Nevada, with
much less population and wealth
were admitted, it was only fair to
let Utah in. Mormonism kept
Utah out a longtime, but Mormon
ism has cleaned itself of some of its
worst features, though it never was
half so black as it was painted.
Utah is all right.
California's militia have proved
a detriment to the state, but the
experience is worth considerable.
Had the militia done their duty at
the first call the strikers in that
state would have been put to flight
and serious trouble prevented, but
the cowardice of the militia was
the torch which fired the strikers
to desperation and tbe result iB
, naturally a heavy loss of life before
forces could be brought to put down
The warm weather of the past
few. weekB has hastened the har
vest season. Grain 1b ripening
rapidly, and some of the fall grain
is now beiug cut. Some of the
wheat fields in this vicinity this
year are the prettiest ever seen.
The prospects are for a bountiful
harvest of all kinds of grain, espec
ially the fail grain, as it seems to
be a settled fact that the aphis has
done but little damage if any. It
may prove later that they will
injure the spring wheat and oats
slightly, but this iB not feared by
many. The prospects for a good
price are not very flattering, but
those who are in a position to know
say they are better than last year.
Binders are now running steadily
while threshing machines are being
put in readiness. The hay crop
has proved to be a large one and
prices are about the same as last
The Kniehts of Labor, of Port-
I land, have passed resolutions de
nouncing the Oregonian and Tele
gram for the course puraued against
the laboring men in the present
strike, and call on all merchants
who are being patronized by mem
bers of the order to withdraw their
support from those papers, under
the boycott syBtem. It is hardly
likely that the demand will receive
favorable attention, unless potent
means .are employed. " .

sage to congress, December 31. 1851

The Festive Tramp.
Borne people in Pendleton do not
attach sufficient dignity to the tramp
rraternity, says the East Oregonian.
They do not seem to recognize the
buter's right to go to a private resi
dence and eat food earned by another.
Sometimes the tramp resent such an
attitude on tbe part of those to whom
they apply for gratuitous meals. One
here the other day asked a lady for
wherewithal to appease the gnawing
of hunger and the lady said she had
nothing cooked. The tramp replied:
"un, rats! I am getting tired of that
excuse. It's a legular chestnut. Just
hustle about and conk souiethiua-. I
don't propose toatand such treatment."
Another some time since, after a good
lady bad given hitu a better meal than
tbe family had Just eaten, took his bat
made a proper bow and said: "Sow 1
suppose you did your best and your
victual are better than starving. I'll
exonerate you from any evil intentions
against my digestive organs. Having
been on road fare for some months, I
will be able to pull through." That
tramp should be a politician .or a jour
nalist He would rise to eminence. '

Accident at Sweet Home,
Last Sunday John Foster . came
nearly passing in his checks, says
the Brownsville Times, and taken his
departure into the great beyond. He
and a sou of Harvey Hamilton were
handling an "empty" revolver, when
it was discharges, the bullet outtlng
off a thumb for young Hamilton, and
continuing In Us course. Went
through the Foster boy's neck, miss
ing the arteries and doing no damage,
Bive scaring the boy out of a year or
two's growth. It is a significant fuel
that buys have no liusiue-s with re
volvers, and perhaps these young ineu
are aware of it. 'The physician who
attended them says that It appera In
credulous that a bullet should pas
through the neck in this manner, and
not cause instant death.
Last June, Crawford brought his
twelve month old child, suffering
from infantile diarrhoea, to me. It
had been weaned at four months old
and being sickly, everything ran
through it like water through a sieve.
I gave it the usual treatment in such
but without benefit. The child
kept growing tbinmr until it weighed
but little more .Uiun when bom, or
perhaps ten pounds. I then started
the father to giving ChamherUiu's
Coiic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.
Before one bottle nf the 2Ti cent size
had been used, a marked improvement
was seen and its continued use cured
tbe child, Its weakness and puny
constitution disappeared and its father
and myself believe the child's life was
saved by this Remedy. J. T. Marlow,
