hundreds of thousands of people with

only without employment, but are also
without the means or procuring iooa,

the people of Oregon return thanks to
God for His goodnaa, I do most earn
estly recommend that they should de
voutly implore Him to dispose the
president and the congress of the
United States to Becure the restoration
of silver as full legal tender money, in
accordance with the polloy.of the fath
ers of the republic, whereby our indus
tries may be revived, and the honest
toilers, of the land may procure their
dally bread, not as alms, but as the re

Champions May Fight in Some
Bostow, Nov. 2. Charley Mithell
and Corbett'a manager, W. A. Brady,
bad a conference here in the presence
of David Blancbard, prelimnary stake
holder. At Its conclusion the news
paper men were admitted aad Mitchell
said. "The proposition I have made is
that if the fight cannot be fought in
public let us fight in private and let
Blancbard place the money in tne
bands of some one we agreee upon. If
we cannot fight in this country, why
don't Corbett agree to come to England
"Corbett," said Brady, f,baa agreed
to fight you In the only reputable club
"If this fight is not pulled off," said
Mitchell, "at tbo lime set in the arti
cles, I know what I'll do."
"Do you mean," said Brady, "that
you will take down the $10,000?"
"No, said Mitchell; "I'll request
Blancbard to send the money to the
Sporting Life in England, and chal
lenge Corbett to fight me over there.
He has as much right to go over there
and fight me as I have to come to this
"I want you to understand," said
Brady, "that Corbett will not fight you
under the London rules and you may
ballenge him from one end of the
year to the other. He won his cham
pionship under Marquis of Qu'eensber
ry rules and that is the way he intends
to defend the title."
As the party was about to depart,
Mitchell asked Brady if Corbett would
fight at Monaco. "Yes," said Brady,
"when we get a business understand
ing from them."
"I'll agree," said Mithell, "to fight
Q leensberry rul&j and let the present
rules stand, only that we transfer the
money to some one over there. I will
also consent to an American for referee,
and we can pick him in this country."
Mitchell agreed to cable Atkinson, of
England, who made the offer, for full

Rev. John Finn in tbe Skamokawa
Eagle says: "Talking aboutsteamboat
rates. In 1850 I took my first ride on
tbe Columbia river. It was on a little
boat called tbe Columbia. I remember
that we had a Wg crowd on her. Over
a hundred passengers. They charged
me a (20 gold piece for the passage
from Astoria to Port'and. We left As
toria in tbe evening without supper
and when we got to Oik Point about
twelve that night, a number of us made
a rusn asnore to get Boimimug to eat.
But there was nothing there and we
went on board and pushed on for Port
land. At noon the next day we got
our first and only meal on the passage.
It was a grab game, I tell you, and we
were a hungry lot when, we reached
Portland late that night.
The following from the San Francisco
Call conveys tbe gratifying information
that Oregon will have one grand ex
hibit at the Midwinter fair: "A cor
respondent asks for an explanation of
tbe fact that tbe Midwinter fair build-'
lugs are being constructed entirely of
Oregon pine and spruce, while Califor
nia redwood does not figure in tbe
materials used. Tbe explanation given
by tbe executive committee is that at
the time tbe contracts were let the
only woods available in sufficiently
large quantities were Oregon pine and
spruce. Besides, .It is stated by the
executive committee that white red
wood is desirable for interior finishing
it Is not so well adapted for construc
tion purposes as the other woods. Red
wood will be freely used, it Is promised,
in tbe decoration of tbe various build
ings." SUPEEME COUET.
