THE SEASON AND ITS NEEDS
Men do not gather grapes of thorns
or figs of thistles. Neither do they
pick blackberries in January or pitch
snowballs in July. There never was
a season or a circumstance bat that its
counterpart followed apace, and to the
steadfast the harvest time with its
liounty succeeds to the penury of the
sowing. Conditions are not fixed and
changeless.
It happens that in a commercial
sense the present is a season of dearth
and famine. The culmination of the
resumption movement has stricken
with a temporary paralysis nearly
every branch of industry except the
tillage of the soil. The coming Winter
will witness the termination of this
disturbing cause. Then we will see a
change. Instead of money being nearly
all withdrawn from use, it will again
How freely into circulation. The green
backs being redeemed, a new series will
be issued to take the placo of those re
tired in equal quantity, whilst for every
dollar of the currency retired by re
sumption a gold or silver dollar will
be put into circulation as a substitute.
Therefore, instead of being contracted,
the outlook for our currency on and
after January next, is that it will
really be doubled in amount as the pro
cess of resumption goes on, aud instead
of being held in a few hands, as now,
the opeiation of resolution will be to
send life giving streams throughout all
the channelsof business&nd departments
of industry among the people.
The practical improvement in
connection with this subject is
how to conduct during the trying ordeal
of waiting and suspense that impends
until that "consummation so devoutly
to l>e wished ' is reached. If we need
a store of fruits, wo wait until the Sum
mer days come around and bring them.
So if we need money which cannot be
got, it is equally incumbent to wait
UttUtifltiif._UUl.il the settlement day
Hut the very worst regimen for such
a condition of disease as hard times,
that could possibly be adopted is hoard
ing. Instead of a remedy it is a pois
on that only aggravates instead of
allays the fever of the public pulse. If
owing to causes that are too widt
reaching to l>e beyond the power of
local control, the stock of curroncy at
the command of the body-politic is
temporarily too limited to suffice ade
quately for the transaction of its busi
ness thus inducing universal embarrass
rnent, then it follows as a matter of
course, that the policy best calculated
to mitigate the inconvenience is to
multiply to the greatest possible extent
the circulation ot what money can be
obtained for the purpose. If one dol
lar csn be made to effect the same
amount ol work in exchanges and
settlements that is done by two in ordi
nary times, by reason ot' being moved
troiu hand to hand twice as rapidly as
usual, the currency, iu effect, is doubled
for all practical purposes. All who
have the good of the community at
heart and whose lives arc modulated by
the spirit of the golden rule, will cer
tainly act on this priuciple. Instead of
indulging panic-terror and dreading
calamities ahead that are not destined
to tall, all who have a [dace in the
busy haunts of active life, iustead of
lettiug their gates get off the hinges,
old paint « rack and drop off their
houses, rotteu sidewalks grow still
more dilapidated and everything about
them assume a look of general sfcift
leesness aud a " caved in " appearance,
should take advantage of the times to
spruoe up inside and out. What if it
does coit a little uiouey, it will furnish
a job (or your neighbor just wheu he
most needs it, besides, the keeping up
of your own credit demands it. Keep
a stift upper lip and a clean con
science, and do the fair thing whatever
betide ; then if all go down together in
a heap, let it be with colors all set and
iu brave style.
WALI.A WVU.A IMPROYKMKSI\—Be
tween thirty and forty new buildings
are going up in Walla Walla at the
present time Among them are a tine
new Methodist church. The second
story ot Schwai'Acher, ttros. Oo.'s
brick is nearly finished. Thomspon Jt
*> Donnoll are each building new bricks,
and a great number of fine residences
are going up.
AITROVED. —The Prrsideut has ap
proved the act tor the sale of timber
lands iu California. Oregon and Wash
ington Territory.
Mitchell • bill to change the
name of the Geo. W Elder to Columbia,
and City of Chester to Portland, has
pa««ed the Senate.
A WAY OUT OF THE WOODS.
A citizen of Walla Walla writes to
the I nion, under the above caption,
relative to the vexed transportation
problem, as follows :
"In seeking after something to de
liver at frotu the thraldom of monopo
lies, various plans are suggested.
Among them all no single one seems
to meet all the necessities of the case.
The 1 ist one namely, building portages
by the people, tid fair at its inception
to fill the bill. Hut the Ute sale of the
local road or its consolidation wit
foreign capitalists, c .rckmate* this pro
ject so completely as to compel us to
look further. In beating a!x>ut we see
the Seattle Walla Walla Railroad,
which has a charter already granting
the right of way. Now suppose a
People's Railroad Company be formed
here covering the fciound from Walla
Walla to the Columbia river and also
to the portages Let this company
nfcgotiate for and obtain that portion of
the Seattle and Walla Railroad
east of the Columbia river giving the
Seattle <fc Walla Walla Railroad Com
pany auch assurances of future connec
tion a* will indue* them to relinquish
to us that portion of their charter and
at the same time to keep oar People's
Company independent and ready to
reach oat and connect with either line
or both, as may be desirable. No doubt
the baiidiag of this road to the river
would do more to stimulate the Seattle
A Walla Walla Company to bring cap
ital to finish it than everything else.
Let us build first and own the ap
proaches to the river, then go on to the
portages. In the meantime we can go
to the Oregon Legislature, which meets
this Fall, and try to get action against
discrimination, and fixing prices on the
long portage, and proceeding at once
to build the railroad to the river, and
await the action of the North Pacific
Railroad and Oregon Legislature upon
| the portages.

which Sunday newspaper offices were
greeted, uo disturbance occurred.
This morning John Porter, a brick
layer residing at San Meguel station
went to the house of a neighbor named
D. C. Haley, and asked Mrs. Haley if
her husband was there, but receiving
an answer iu the negative, he accused
her of lying to him, broke in the door
with an axe, and kuocked Mrs. Haley
down beating and kicking i»er severely.
She was at once brought into the city,
bat on her way to the receiving hospi
tal was prematurely delivered of a still
born child, and now lies in a very
precarious condition. Porter has not
yet been arrested.
