We prlut below the Senate Joint
Memorial, Introduced by Senator
Hlrsoh of Marion county. It is a
'eghlatlvo document of great lm
iwirtance just now beciuso the sul
Ject of opening the Willamette
river is receiving more attention
than ever before. Ttio Hlrsch mini
orlul was recently taken up by a
Lane couuty grange, adopted- and
aud recommended to the slate
srauge for its adoption. It passed
the senato almost unanimously, but
mot its death In the houco, where
It was referred to a corporation tool
and ho deliberately pocketed It.
'tarry to say, he was a Marlon
couuty man, too. He was rewarded
with a federal olllce at Portland
shortly after. The memorial re
ferred to was as follews:
Your memorialists the legislative
assembly of tho etute of Oregon re
spectfully represent That the Wil
lamette river in the state of Oregon
Is ouo of the most Important tribu
taries to tho Columbia, It drains tho
most fertile and populous region of
iheNorthwest, and is tho only nat
ural outlet for the immense products
of tho great valley of tho Willam
ette. That It Is navigable for light
draught steamboats more than 150
miles from Its mouth during the
winter and spring seasons, aud tim
ing such seasons furnishes oheap
and convenient transportation for
i ho teeming products of the fertile
and populous valley. But in sum
mer and autumn, when wool, fruit,
.rain, and other products should be
marketed, the' river is generally
available only for a short distance
above tho falls of tho Willamette.
That the obstructions (ohlelly sand
bars) to the navigation of this valua
ble highway can be easily removed
by drtdghij., pulling snags, etc., at a
cost of not more than $100,000.
That large auiouuts of money
have been heretofore appropriated
and expended upon tho portion of
said river Below tho falls, but the

the general government.
With a view therefore of afford
ing the people above tho falls of the
illnmette the benefit of steamboat
competition with railroads travers
ing tho valley, aud a cheap aud
expeditious means of transporta
tion in all beusous of the year.
Your memorialists pray your hon
orable body to appropriate the said
sum of $100,000 to tie expended in
the removal of obstructions to navi
gation on said river above said falls,
and iu protecting the banks thereof,
where towns and cities aie located,
from washing away by tho action of
the winter freshets.

bis regret as au Englishman at the
repeated utterances or a portion of
tho British press respecting the
Chilian affair. Ho said b hoped

Speaking of criticisms on the presi

entirely temperate, dignified and
logically conclusive. Captain Schley
also epoke briefly. He said tb
steamer Baltimore always stood as
the representative or tho great power

ferred to the efllclency of the crew,
of the yesttel, and said that If the
circumstances durlug tho late Chil

members of tho crew would have
acted in such a manner a to merit
tho approval of tho government.
"Tho cloud of war baa how blown
