WHERE X WOULD BUILD HT
SYSTEM OF RAILROADS FOR
THB NORTHWEST.
Editent are generally poor men and
because they are |>oof and hare nothing
N> invest in railroads, tbeir opinions go
for but littlo with the railroad capitalists
Their constant business is to acr|naint
themselves with geographical and topo
graphical features of the section of country
of which they write, and with ordinary
diligence they do become more familiar
with the country than most any other
dass of men. But if they* perchance,
from their store of knowledge, suggest a
place or policy that meets with favor and
is adapted as a success, some special pet
of a company or some capitalist will be
allowed the credit of the same,, while the
man who was instrumental in bringing
the policy forward is ignored and forgot
ten. If there is money to be made in
the scheme, the man who suggests it, is
crowded out of the legitimate profits.
Bat nevertheless the persistant and
cheeky editor shrinks not from his week
ly task in making his honest suggestions
and battling with objectors till convic
tion has gaiacd the ascendancy that he
Was right and tho progress of the scheme
has ■ been made a complet« success. We
notioe that our neighbor of the Boomer
Eng has made some sensible suggestions
of his plans for the l'alousc branch, and
he don't socm to ask anything for his
Views, although they are valuable. The
Northern
of tho couotry, which, if they had heed
Pacific management in the
Northwest has bad line upon line and
*
pveeept upon prcdbpt, from the local press
m _ * w
a, (bey would have saved millions to
themselves besides conferring some prac
«cal benefit upon the peopleof the North
Wert and entitled themselves to some
•wdtt from the people for their wisdom
in selecting their route. But they did
•ot heed advice of thoee who really knew
better than themselves, and their system
of roads west of the Bockies is the poor
•I that could have been adopted, and
whoa completion is established, which it
will be, that lino will have far leas advau
fcges than any one of two other lint
that is now likely to be soon established
The Tillik, the Signal and the old
Jiumal, local papers published at Lew
iston, have all in their time put in their
Bp to tho authorities of the Northern
Pacific, and ventured advice which was
. not heeded, the neglect of which has
added to the expense of constructing thc
Northern Paoifie, of from $20,000 to
•40,000 per mile, besides an increase of
dhtrnoe fYom 100 to 150 miles between
Ainsworth and the Yellowstone, and
gnsüy augmented the avenge grade of
•he rood, and taken it through a country
for loss productive iu the meaus of thru
•king local support of a railroad. Now
Ihn Teller is going to make some vol
■ntwy suggestions to the managen of the
Oregon Short Line not dogmatically, but
Modestly and springing lYout a candid
•urvey of the field after many yean ob
«.rvatioa. Firat, we would like to be
plaeed tu the Uuion Pacifie ayatem, em
bracing the Oregon Short Lino and thc
Utah Northern, in reference to tho North
Bast coast, and when in thia poaition, wc
Bauld form no dallying alliances with
riiher the Northern Pacifie or O. B. &,
N. Co. but act independent of both ox
«ft so far as to exchaage traffic with
them wherever the buainem of the ooun
By demands such exchange, without ins
piring tho traffic over our own road.
8oeoDd, we would progress the Oregon
•host Line down to Lewiston as fast as
men and money could accomplish it, and
kj the time it eould bo completed to Lew
iston or oven to the mouth of the Grand
Bond, we would have two or three steam
koala to ply the waters of Snake and
Columbia river ae far as Prieet rapide __
the Columbia, and would undoubtedly
umnmence constructing from the Colum
bia at or near Priest Rapids serosa the
©mondes to Seattle and tie and iron the
mad as fast an graded. We would take
nil the wheat East, direct over the 0. 8.
L. from Snake river and eountry border
ing we eould obtain, and we would deliver
merchandise from tho East at all points
on Snake river at reasonable raten and
nmnpete with the Northern Pacifie and
O. R. A N. Co. We would be sure to
stop shipments up the Columbia and
Snake rivera at $40 and $50 per ton from
Portland.
Third, we would push the Utah and
Northern through the Big Hole Pam of
the Bitter Root and down the Clearwater
la tawiston-oa rapidly aa pmcticable and
Save it ready to furniah business for thc
■9. 8. L. nearly as soon as the said 0. S.
B. wan completed to Lewiston. Said
Utah« Northern would cany traffic in
merchandise and lumber both
*■ (ha commercial interests of the
•criow-thnougfc which it extends might
4kma*A.*d we would have no fear of
its loss as a financial business line as soon
as it was completed to Lewiston.
Fourth, we would progress tl e b j)d
ing of the 0. 8. L. across the Cascades
to Seattle or some point near that place
as rapidly as practicable and meantime
push the said road down the 8nake to the
mouth of the 1'alottsc. thence across the
Columbia near Triest Bap-ids and close
the gap hy a bridge aeroas the Columbia
at that jKjint.
Fifth, we would enlarge the system by
narrow gague up the I'otlatch and
through the l'ulouse, Cedar Creek, l'iue
Creek, Hangman Creek and Bock Creek
valleys to an intersection with the Not th
em Pacific at or near Bathdrum.
Sixth, we would build a short narrow
guage up Cottonwood to some point on
Camas Prairie.
Seventh, we would build other narrow
guage feeders to bo tributary to the
main line along the Snake river, and when
this system Is completed, we would have
the entire Villard system of roads us now
projected at our mercy and command the
(irinaipal business m railroading of the
great Columbia basin, and hy using liber
al business policy wc would be able to
retain this business, till our system of
roads had worn out, or the population
of the great Columbia basin had migrated
because of the soil failing to yield to the
moderate labor of the husbandman, an
event that will not take place till Jay
Gould and all his compeers hare moulded
in the dust and been almost forgotten,
and a vast empire of iiving, active and
prosperous people will occupy and domi
nate in the whole area north of 4(i north
and wsst of the great Bitter Boot range,
and the great inland soa of Puget Sound
shall be one of tho maratine and com
mercial seas of the western hemisphere.
It is not in the power of the Villard sys
tem to prevent the cousumation of what
we have outlined above, if there he faith

Northwest coast.
A ' PITIFUL ' «TORT.
Tho 0. R. & N. train brought to this
city last evening Eira Baird of l^ewiston,
sheriff of Ne* Perce county, Idaho, who
had in charge a man and a woman, both
adjudged insane, and who, by a special
permit, were committed to thc insane
asylum, East Portland. Tho woman's
case was so peculiar us to attraot the at
tention and finally to arouse thc sympathy
of uearly every persuu on board the train.
She is accompanied by her husband, L.
V. llinakon, who is assiduous in his at
tentions to his afflicted wife, and burst
into tears upon being separated from her
last night at the aasylum. What attract
ed particular attention on board thc traiu
was tho woman's wild ravings as at times
«hy would struggle with her husband in
thc vain endeavor to escape from him.
Her appearance would be terrifying. She
would froth at thc mouth, her eyes would
roll as in dolirium, and with a low, growl
ing sound, she kept up a vicious snapping
at her husband, sometimes tearing his
clothes and sometimes even imbedding
her teeth into his flesh. Many believe
that these symptoms are those of that
horrible disease, hydrophobia, and that
tho poor woman is more in need of medi
cal aid in a hospital than of being con
fined in a mad-houae. Hydrophabia is a
hitherto unknown malady on this coast,
but it is sure to come some time. There
fore, it would be a good plan for the phys
icians of Portland to examine well into
this matter. If thc woman has hydro
phobia, the man will also have it, having
been bitten so frequently. The husband
is here in thc city penniless, having ex
pended all his means in taking care of his
wife, and what to do now is a question
that is not easily decided. A most noble
impulse of affection prompts him to stay
by her aide, but without means this is
impossible. Rev. Dr. Liudsley, who also
came down on the train, has interested
himself in the matter and will eall the at
tention of the charitably disposed to the
cue.—Oregonian, June 28fA.
Not Hydrophobia.— Dr. 8. E.
Josephi, superintendent of the Oregon
Insane asylum, writes to the Oregonian
stating that Mrs. L. V'. IlinkNon, who
thought to be afflicted with hydrophobia,
is a case of acute mania, and there is no
occasion for any fear that the former dis
ease exists. A party of physicians vis
ited the asylum yesterday morning, bnt
after a conversation with l)i\ Josephi
did not see Mrs. llinkson, fearing that
such an interview would only tend to
excite her unnecessarily.— Oregonian ,
June 2$.
GENERAL ITS WE.
Omaha, June 28th.—The printers on
all thc Omaha papers struck tor an ad
vance in thc price of composition from
32 to 35 cents jier 1,000 ems. The pro
prietors offer 33 cents, and the papers will
idl be published in reduced proportions
to-morrow.
New York, June 20.—Nearly all the
business men, including liquor and cigar
dealers, to-day refused to take trade dol
lars. It is expected this general action
will drive the coin out of thc city in a
very short time. The Merchants' Ex
change; brought about the change. Bul
lion dealers arc not willing to pay over
85 cents for a trade dollar, except to fill
out of town orders. These orders have
been for speculative purposes. None ware
received to-day, showing that the move
ment in this city has extended quite lib
erally throughout the country. There
arc 35,000,000 of these coins out, which
the Government will not take except us
bullion.
A band of Ne* Perce squaws were
quite an attraction on the street yesterday,
as they went front store to store on a shop
ping expedition. They were neatly dressed
some with shoes on, all hooded with many
colons! handkerchiefs, most of them
young and good-looking, and all dejected
and spirit-broken. The huzard of war
with the whites, or rather thc attempt to
murder everybody in North Idaho, led
by Chief Joseph, was no good for the
poor children of the forest. The Indian
women arc some of the captives sent to
thc Indian Territory three years ago,
and received permission from their Uncle
Samuel to return to the homes of their
fathers and the land of their birth.—
Idaho Democrat, June '21th.
Sam Francisco, June 28.—Three
thousand Chinese laborers, employed on
the Oregon and California railroad, have
struck for an advance in wages front $1
to $1 25 a day. The strike began last
week, every Chinaman quitting at a giv
en hour. They will listen to nothing ex
cept $ 1 25, and all attempts to coax or
compromise have been rejected. Thc
contractors are now trying to starve
their stubborn workmen into subjection,
but without success. Chinese bosses
here say the advance will have to be paid
as there is such a demand for laborers in
that section that men will huve no trou
ble in getting work elsewhere. They al
so stute that there never has been an un
successful strike by Chinamen on the Pa
cific Coast.
Seattle, June 28.—The Indians of
the lower Sound, along the Skagit, have
for some years prevented a government
survey of valuable timber lands above
thc confluence of the Suuk and the Ska
git, and in the neighborhood of the Ska
git tuiucs. Recently the surveyor-gen
eral gave a contract for surueying three
townships there, but upon reaching the
scene of operation the party was met by
Indians, who declared they should kill
thc whites, should they endeavor to do
the work. The Indians off the reserva
tion arc joining the Skagit tribe, so that
there are about 200 who will resist the
surveying party. The surveyor who
has the contract to do tho work came to
Seattle to get assistance to protect him
self and men while in the mountains.
Chicago, June 28.—The Indians
now at Washington, according to a spe
c >al, are enjoying an exceedingly high
time. Those with chief Moses together
with their interpreter, quaffec deeply of
the deletrious fire-water lust night, and
caused considerable axiety to the Indian
officers. Commissioner Price asked if
he would prosecute the men who sold
them liquor, and he answered: "I tried
that once in this town aud I never will
attempt it again. I don't believe their is
enough of virtue and intelligence in this
town to convict a man for selling liquor
to the Indiuns, and I would like to get
u|K)tt a platform aud toll the people so.
We had a clear case tho last time, but it
was lost by perjured testimony. A man
that will sell liquor to an Indian will lie,
as I have always maintained."
Sentenced.— E*ra Snodderly was
taken iuto court this morning and sen
tenced by tho judge to be hanged by the
neck, until he is dead, dead, DEAD.
The prisoner received his tentcnce with
supreme indifference remarking to an of
ficer that he did not have to die but once
At half past three this afternoon, James
F. McPherson was taken into court, and
through his attorneys, made a motion
for a new trial which was overruled. Be
fore pronouncing the sentence of death
tho court commanded tho prisoner to rise
to his feet, aud state, if sny, what legal
reason there was sgainst sentence being
passed upon him. Iu a trembling voice
McPherson said ho kuew of no legal rea
sou, but before God, he knew nothing*of
the murder until the morning of tîie
27th of July. Sentence was then passed
upon him and he was conducted to the
jail. Owcnby has uot yet boon sea
tonesd. Thc great tragedy is approach
ing the final act when the three principal
actors will make their exit and meet their
victim behind the scenes.— D. Chronicle

ffBRftiâLE ACCIDENT.
Last Saturday evening two construction
trains collided on the Northern Pacific
near Herron Siding, with murderous re
salts. A gravel train of fifteen cars on
which was a large force of Chinamen,
was backing around a curve, while anoth
er construction train was coming head
first from the opposite direction, both run
ning at the rate of twenty-five miles an
hour. The engine of the down train
struck the flat cars with soeh force aa to
pile them all in one promiscuous heap,
burying dead anddyiug Chinamen beneath
the terrible wreck. George Pike, the
engineer of thc down train, and one oth
er whiteman were killed. The wreck
was cleared away as soon as possible, re
vealing twenty-three dead and fifteen
wounded Chinameu. Thc accident is
said to have been the result of careless
ness, and the guilty ones, whoever they
are, should be made to suffer for the
terrible result.— Watchman, June 2 9th.
