The legislative fiasco at Salem ended last Saturday, and it ia a good thing that it did. Very little commendable legislation recalled. True, some good law were made, but, indeed, many poor ones were enacted. Tax peoplo along the Columbia will Watch with more or leas interest the movements ol the cannery consolida tion. It ia a proposition shrouded in tnystery, and is looked npon at present as a scheme which brooks aril. The cold storage plants and independent eanners will undoubtedly be a thorn in the ribs of the combination. PAYMENT IN PULL. United State Will llecelvo Over 9120,000,000 from Pacific Road. Wuhihutoh, Feb, 28. A atatemnt eon. cerning tbe settlement of the Pecitio rail road obligation! wai road today by the de partment ol Justice, from which the follow ing i an extract I It will ba remembered that by the bill authorising the construction of the Pacific railroads, passed in 186t, the United State agreed to lend it credit to the various Pa- dtlo railroad eompanlea for the purpose of aiding ttiera in construction of a railway from the Missouri river to tbe Pacific ocean. For that purpose bonds were Issued in the aid of the Union Pacific railroad to the amount of ti7 ,236,511; to what was subse quently known aa the Eanaas Pacific to the amount of 16,630,000, 10 the Central Pacific te the amount of $25,885,120, and to the Western Pacific te the amount of 11,970,580, Upon these conditions, without dlreot re imbursement, the United States paid Inter est from the date of their respective issues, so that In 1897 there waa due to the United States from the Union Pacific Railroad Com pany the sum of 158,488,223; from the Kan sa Pacific In round uumbera, the sum of IIS.000,000. On the first of February, 1890, there was dueliom the Central Pacitic Rail road Company the sum of J53.330.062, ud there waa due from the Western Paelfio oa the aame date the sum of 15,423,062. The agreement lust made with the Cen tral Paeiflo Railroad Company assusee be yond the slightest doubt the full payment of the debt of the Central Paeiflo and the Western Pacific railroads, aggregating Sw - 812,71548. This debt, by the agreement, ia funded for payment within the period at 10 years; one-twentieth thereof being payable each six mon ths during that period, and the gov ernment receiTing 3 per cent interest en the balance remaining due from time to time. The treasury will immediately receiTe about 12.000,000 by the sale of the first four notes maturing under this agrecmeat, which are taken by 8 payer dt Company, aa an earnest of good faith, and of the reliance which they place npoe the ability of the contract ing parties to meat the obligation entered tntu by the agreement.

Aa Interesting Letter from tha Lit tle City of Vernonta. , Vmsomia, Or., Feb. 17. (Editor Oacaen Vir,yAs yon asked fur opinions In your last Issue of Ths Mis in regard to the Ne halera road, we will air some et ours as w see them. Tb figuratlr situation of a good road from the Nehalent valley to the Columbia river. Men favor good roads and reason men favor bad roads and do not reason. We hear from a very few, complaints in regard to the tax It will Involve upon them to build the proposed road from the Neha lent to the Columbia. Some one says it is just a scheme to gull the people. If there is any way to gull the people any worse than they are galling themselves by not having a good road, God help as I we will give up the sponge. But let na figure and see where the tax comes in. Take the butter and sugar sup ply at the present a tags. Good butter here ia worth 25 cents per roll, (and four rolls glut the market); Columbia river market 60 to 65 cants per roll. Soger, 12 pounds per dollar, valley market Celanibia 18 to 20 pounds. One roll butter, valley market, buys 8 pounds of eugar; one roll batter, river market, buys 9 to 10 pounds; loea to producer and consumer, H value or 68fi per cent tax oa every dollar of exchange products. Take the coal oil and potato condition at present. Two bushels potatoes buy 5 gallons oil, river market; valley market, if we could sell the potatoes at all, 7 bushels to buy 6 gallons oil ; a loss ef 5-7 to the producer or 71 X cents on every dollar. A man has 100 bushels bast quality win- r appiea anu ia trying uara to seep tnem from rolling by Selling them at 25 cents per beshel, while Portland is wanting auob ep- ana shingle business premises good returns to those engaged in it. Let as all join in tha chorus of the busy song, and herald tha tidiags that wa are doing badness in this part of the state. - As? absolute disregard for tha de mands ef the people for relief from the ohfld's-play system of road work ia this state was manifest by the mem bers ol the lata legislature.
