What Some of the Boys are Saying on
Topics of the Day.
Among the many causes that have
conspired to imikn a scarcity of money
not only in Portland, bnl throughout
the state, fayn the Welcome, not the
least is the scarcity of beef cattle, a
sufficiency of which heretofore lias been
owned by Oregon farmers. It lias been
said by those conversant witli the stock
and beef biiHineHB that in the pant year
at feast $1,000,000 which should have
been held in Oregon was forwarded to
California for fut beef. One firm alone
lias paid in freight on cattle for the punt
five months flOO.OOO. For fut beef in
California l'oitland butchers have paid
3,'u cents per pound and tho addition of
freight, yet they buy cheaper than they
can at home, where good beef cattle are
held at live cents, When this market is
mentioned western Washington and
Victoria must be considered in, since
Portland supplies these sections with
fuurtifihs of their beef.
If the river and harbor bill does not
pass this session of congress somebody
will be blamed, and if Mr. Mitchell
comes np for re-election lie will very
likely receive no support from eastern
Oregon. Our necessities are such in
this portion of the state that we are
forced to remember our friends and not
forget our enemies, and, furthermore,
wo are entitled to a senator. Westorn
Oregon lias controlled the congressional
delegation long enough, and it is high
time that a change should take place.
This part of the stato has been too long
subservient to Portland, the Cascade
locks to the mouth of the Columbia,
and the upper river to tho Willamette,
and we should study our own interests
in the future in preference to any other,
The next senator should be from eastorn
Oregon, and we should work with this
single purpose in viow. The DaUet
The other day wo noticed a farmer
buying bacon, laid, butter and potatoes
of dealers in town. These are necessa
ries of life which every farmer should
produce "on his farm, ami until the farm
ers do so, they cannot expect to become
prosperous. With the exception of gro
ceries, tho farmer should produce ev
erything at home that ho eats, but
many Crook county farmers do not,
hence tho great drain upon their in
comes and upon the wealth of the
county. Or h oco He lie u ,
It's not pet haps so easy to toll jmt
the real, eventual, deep through mean
ing of " success." It takes so much and
so many elements to make up the full,
final meaning of which we can only
guess at at best when all is done that
there is always a chance for mistukes.
But it may be answered that so far as
(his side of the gulf is concerned it is
wholly a matter of feeling; there's no
oilier reality shout it ; and there seems
to be soino force in that idea too. Eatl
A man died from enlargement of the
heart at Portland the other day. It is
not stated as a fact, but it is presumed
that tie was an Oregon mossback, and
gave 25 to n schemo that added $10,
(XX) to the value of his property. He
would have lived through it, but he saw
that his neighbor also piollled from his
magnificent gift and this killed him. I it
