One o' the inalienable rights of every
free American citizen is the right to
grumble. While grumbling may not be
considered an agreeable occupation or
one productive of milch good, it is a
lesser vice than using "cuss words” and
occasionally it yields nearly equal satis
faction to that more grave violation of
This prelude is intended as an apology

pleased with his excellency tlie presi
dent, or of that august body called the
congress of tlie United States. While it
is coneeded that the forty-ninthcongress
passed a number of important and needed
measures, it is probable tliat it will be
remembered longer, among thoughtful
and patriotic men, for w bat it did not do
than for wliat it did. One tiling is very
certain, tliat with a surplus income of
one hundred of millions of dollars annu
ally, it was the dutv of congress to either
reduce such surplus by reducing taxation
or by expending it ior Hie public welfare.
With practically no navy, with a de
fenceless coast, with no modern cannon
it does not seem us though it should
have been difficult to know what to de.
It should have been esneciully clear to a
body of men who had just passed a bill
winch in the halls of congress, had beeii
declared to mean war.
Too milch time is spent and too many
bills are passed in order to secure politi
cal advantage by landeiitig to clas-
prejitdices. Too many important meas
ures are put off to the last of the ses
sion when they are rushed through
without sufficient consideration, or only
to be killed by a "pocket veto.” Many,
alas, too many of the meritorious meas
ures never pass at all.
The improvement of the mouth ol the
Columbia, the locks and ship railway at
the Cascades and The Dalles, the im-
provemant of Yaquina and other bays
and harbors are matters of the deepest
interest to citizens of Oregon. To se
cure from the government aid in these
woiks has been tlie chief effort of our
representatives for many years, appro
priations have been made and work
commenced at various points, and all
that I isb been done will be lost to the
public if such works are nol speedily
completed. In view of these facts the
failure ot the president to sign the river
and haibor bill is peculiarly aggrevia-
The president is a strange mixture of
man and mule, Daring the past con-
gress lie vetoed 21 more bills tlian all of
his predecessor'!; 150 bills became laws
without his signature, and 50 were kill
ed by “pocket vttoes.” His veto of the
dependent pension bill was worthy of a
man whose only service to the country
during the war was to fuinisb u substi
tute when drafted. To neither approve
or veto the Mormon bill was to be ex
pected of a man whose past life liad all
of the vices of a Mormon but who,
without repentance, is now trying to
pose as a decent citizen. His pocke'
veto of the Mormon surplus lesolut on
