LBWHTON. NORTH IDAHO. SATURDAY ...................APRIL 6th, 1878. Oregon a Robber. ■The people of Oregon look upon the Walla Walla valley, in Washington Territory, with tho «yes of desire, and are opposed to the erection of (he latter into a commonwealth until it shall yield some of its domuin to extend Oregon's boundaries. The loss of this area would lesseu Washington's population so much as to defer her admission to the Union until after 1900.— ■iV. Y. Herald. How could the idea have arisen that Oregon is so entremely desirous, as many allege, to des E oil Washington Territory and keep it in the aekground? It certainly is not true.— Orego nian. We presume that tho Herald based its opinion of Oregon's desire to despoi Washington, upon the action of the Oregon Legislature in passing a memo rial |p Congress, asking for the original boundaries of Oregon as originally em braced in her constitution as adopted by the people, which Congress on the admission restricted to the territory south of the 46 parallel. Upon the me morial Senator Kelly urged Congress to embrace the counties of Walla Walla and Columbia Within the boundaries of Oregon. Several prominent men of Oregon in the winter *of 1873 and 4 wrote to citizens of Walla Walla to urge this annexation among the people. Senator Mitchell at that timo wrote that he should not favor the measure, but his action the present session in presenting petitions for this annexation indicates that he has changed his pur pose. It is not a matter of surprise ito us that tho Herald should form such un opinion, of tljie desire of Oregon, and its prediction of the results of such a measure are well warranted. The apa thy of tho Walla Walla journals on the t:onstitution question appears more eas ily accounted f|or on the ground of their hope of going tp Oregon; than their opposition to a state government. But the people of neither Walla Walla nor Columbia counties desire to go to Ore gon, there may be a few exceptions. They want a state government of their own. On the Division of Idaho. The La Grande Gazette says: "A better division still would be to recon struct tho political lines of all tho territories north of tho 42 parallel, nnd also of Oregon, and mako two htates East ot the Cascades moun tains, and uniting Western Washington and Western Oregon, one West ofthat «ange. With that reconstruction, one State oould be organ ized at once with sufficient population to entitle . it to a Representative in Congress, and another would soon follow." But few in Idaho would object to your problem, save on the ground of its difficulty of solution. The consent of the people of Oregon is a pre-requisite to such solution, which cannot be ob tained in your or my life time. Thd4 most feasible reconstruction of boundar ies, is the one proposed to make a new State of Washington and North Idaho. This oan be accomplished if the friends of the measure are faithful and persist ent to their trust. Early Death. —Tuesday, the 9th day of April, only ouo week from next Tuesday, is the day appointed for elect ing delegates to a Convention to frame a Constitution for the proposed State of Washington. If the people in the other $>arta of the Territory take as little in terest iu the matter as they do here, the Constitution ijrill die aborning.— W. IV. Union, March 80th. Repu SED.— -The Walla Walla aud Beattie Railroad Compauy have refused the subsidy fifom the counties of Wash ington authorized by the late Legisla ture. Sensible couolusiou. If they eannot construct their road without it they would ftfil to do so with it. - Rejected]—T he reappointment of -Joseph W. Huston as U. S. Attorney tor Idaho, has been rejected by the Seu ato. Stage Line to Bismark. It is current that Ben Holliday is endeavoring to get a stage mail route established through from Walla Walla to Bismark, and has some in fluential elements at work in his interest.— Mon tana North Weit. This would be precursor of the rail road for the Northern route. Wallowa Mail Letting. Advices from Washington inform us at the time of the establishment of the route from Lewiston to Wallowa, (hat the proposal for bids to carry said mail would be issued iu March. Up to the present time no notice of these proposals have reached here. Why the delay? The route is of the greatest importance to our people, and many hero are anx ious to bid for carrying mails on that route. » War Probable. The latest dispatches from Europe are decidedly threatening of war. Eng land aud Russia have utterly failed to come to an agreement about the Con gress. The English press which has hitherto counseled forbearance has en tirely changed its views aud demands that England assert her rights. The popular feeling of England seems to be for war. The Euglish Cabinet have by a majority determined to call out theii reserve forces, and all the ships of theif navy are ordered to be iu readiness. Lorf Derby who does not partake of this war feeling has been constrained to resign as secretary of foreign affairs. Safvft Pasha will requcstEngland to withdraw her fleat as Russia and Turkey are nojiv allies. It is very difficult to predipt anything less than an armed collision between England and Russia at tins time, and should there be a conflict ït will be a bloody one and be quite sure to involve several other nationalities. Out of those foreign evils, some good will be likely to arise to the people of the United States, if our neutrality be properly maintained. COURT CALE NDAR. A pril Term 1878, Xez Perce County. It.
