H. Y. KIRKPATRICK,
Editor - and Proprietor.
It reemt that Govenor Pen
noyer ' doe i not appreciate the
notoriety that his numerous par
dons have broliRht to him. He
hut) said that he will keep them
secret in the future. He dislikes
1 lite -criticism and .yet desires to
dontinue in the good work of re
populating the state with jailbirds.
Is it not rather queer for him to
four newspaper criticism? I had
supposed that he was long ago
calloused by the attack. Surely,
if there is any governor, who
should be careless of it, he is the
one. During the eight years, that
is, since his eccentricities have
become more abnormal he has
been at once the object of awe,
admiration and 'hatred. He hat
been caricatured in the comic jour
nals of New Yoik, villified by a
servient monopolistic .press and
lauded by the Populist papers
from the Atlantic, to the Pacific.
nw. in the last few months of
his remain 'is he going to pluh?
Is this Penoyernfold? Is this the
Pcimoyer that told the president
to attend to his own business. Is
this he of the bold Christmas let
ter not yet forgotten? Can it be
that our only great man excepting
Joe Wald'op will quail before the
' pDwer of the press? If bo, he will
hove two or more opportunities to
rendered himself. Thanksgiving
approaches and he may again ap
point a day before President Cleve
land has time to consider the mat
ter. Andlater'on during the last
days of his term will come Christ
mas; He may gyan yet quit the
cares of state and concentrate
them upon his lumber yard, in a
ahower of pyrotechnics.-Toma-hawk.
The Tomahawk of Portland dish
es the Albany Herald up as fol
lows: At Albany there is published
a paper known as the Herald, of
the mole-eyed, hide-bound p&rtisan
variety. It cannot see ' at all.
Some organs possess vision to the
end of the nose but this one is
apparently sightless. With heavy,
dull, dogged persistence that is
suitable in shoveling sand or saw
ing cord wood, it continues to ar
gue that thecommercial depression
cannot disappear till a Republican
congress is elected. ..In support of
this proposition it quotes several
Reed, Lodge and Warner Miller.
Is it not a rather useless newspaper
which has no greater regard foi
commorcial prosperity and for
the truth which continues in this
strain? The present condition is
due greatly to this evil prophecy
of ignorant or partisan organs.
Probably, like this specimen in
Albany a great many of them real
ly beliove that political parties
have much to do with prosperity
and depression. The heads of
some fellows are only large enough
to hold this sort of dryrot. ,
Chakles B; Howby, assistant
attorn6y-geueral of the United
States, has arrived in San FrauciB
co. He has charge of the treaty
and Indian cases against the gov
ernment, and also the immediate
Charge of all cases growing nut of
depredations df Indians. These
cases number nearly 11,000, and
involve $4,000,000 in round figures.
"Of the large claims we in tend soon
to make test cases. There are six
or eight in all, and I expect this
winter to move the United States
supreme court to try them, and
thus get them settled one way or
another. The Indians claim
cases are not brought against the
gnverment alone, but Bainst the
United Stntes and the Indians al
ledged to have committed the dep
redations. If judgment is render
ed, and the particular Indian-trilie
has claims in the form of money
or otherwise against the govern
ment th amount found is taken
out of'tbj claim, .
Indications are favorable for an
iuoreated immigration to tbe Paci-
fio coast io tba near future, caused
by the general condition of unrest
and dissatisfaction that prevail!
among the residents of tlm middle
west. The occasion justifies an
extraordinary effort on the part of
Oregonians to attract this immi
gration. We haxe inducements
here not found elsewhere. The
people of the middle west have been
suffering from drouth and tliev
want to get to a country where
they have rain and plenty of it
Oregon is just such a place und it
is our business to acquaint them
wita this intelligence, liy going
at the matter skillfully and sys
tematically we can attract at least
four hundred thousand people to
ourBtate within the next few years,
This work will not be done by out
siders. We must be alive to our
own interests. We must advertise
judiciously and push oil? claim
with redoubled energy. Our cli
mate, soil and natural advantages
are unsurpassed, but the world
don't know it. ' It is our our plain
duty to enlighten them.
Thk San Francisco Examiner
savs that with the exception of
Switzerland,. "New Zealand is the
most interesting spot in the world
today to the student of politic.d
social science. It is a laboratory
in which the great theories that
agitate the rest of the world are
put to the test of experiment.
There we may see in successful
operation the taxation of land
values' exclusive of improvements
and personal property, graduated
income taxes, the government own
ership of telephones, telegraphs
railroads, postal savings banks,
government life Insurance, legal
tender postal notes, a reformed
civil service, . government labor
bureaus, and other idvsnced ideas
which among us are considered the
dream of the next centurv."
Another favorable report con
cerning the Oregon Pacific's finan
cial condition comes from head
quarters at Corvallis. In conver
sation with Receiver Chas. Clark
it is learned that the statement of
the earnings and expenditures
of the road during August shows a
small balance in favor of the com
pany. During th.'t time many
additional repairs were made to the
roadbed and the dock atYaquina
City was placed in a satisfactory
condition for the coming winter.
Much work was also done on the
passenger and t.eight cars in the
way of painting, etc., and all hands
are in excellent spirits over the
future prospects. Ex.
Tins has been a bad year for;
railroads, and if they had many
more such yetrs they would all
have to get out of business. Tn-,'
last number of the Commercial and
Financial Chronicle prints a table
showing the gross earningB-of tin
United States railways for the first
six months of this year, and com
pared with the earnings for the
same period in lml.s it -, liows an
aggregate loss of $100,000,000 in
The Express is in favor of bond
ing the city and purchasing the
electric light and water plant pro
vided e can got it reasonable
and we believe we can. We be
lieve it would be a saving of at
least from 800 to $1,000 a year,
and would be a great deal more
satisfactory to all parties conserned.
Men not very old can remember
when a trotting record of 2:10 was
supposed to be an impossil ility,
and if a prediction of 2:02 had been
made, the prophet would have been
deemtd crazy on the trotting ques
tion. Put the latter speed, or near
ly that, has been att.iinetl, and we
may expect it to be lowered to two
minutes before many years.
The sweetest, purest social life
will ever be found among the mid
dle classes, who are not surfeited
with riches nor diiven to extremi
ties by poverty. It'is in the home
like cottage, where the manly
father, the virtuous, good wife and
obedient children live, that man
hood and womanhood, surrounded
by tbe purest atmosphere, is devel
oped and maintained. Bain Junes.

half a million a year have arrived
in this country, but during the
past fow months immigration has
not only greatly fallen off, but it
has actually been exceeded by em
igration. The tide of immigration
should never be permitted to rise
again to its former proportions.
It is said that a man who won't
take a papor because he ran borrow
one has invented a machine with
which he can cook his dinner by
smoke from his neighbor's -.him-ncv.
Tiik cro'tker and kicker is the
biggest nuisance in the laud. He
is a blight on the community he
infests, and it is a happy riddance
when he rises in the magnitude of
his disgust and pulls his freight.
The drought this year has cost,
the farmerB east of the Rocky
mountains about $350,000,000 in
the corn arop alone.
OiwiNAHii.Y the corn crop of the
south is only a seventh of the
whole crop in this country, but this
year it is a fourth.
Tiik members of the late Board
of Health of Omaha are on trial for
failure to obey an order regulating
