We would like to see Oregon make the exhibit if she can do so consistently, ' but whether . she can afford' it or. not if she under takes it, justice to ourselves . de mands that we make a full and first class exhibit, and advertise our fair State in the manner she deserves. NEW LAWS NEEDED. There seems to be no hoi? of relief for the unfortunate Union Pacific em ployes who are waiting in Portland for their pay. 'Their condition serves to point a moral which is that the states should pass laws that v.-ill reach yet farther than the lien laws, and in such cases as this give the laborer a lieu on any property of the company, nr.il supplementary 10 uua snouia De u pro vision by which punative damages would be assented against any corporation, dis charging its men without paying them unless it was shown that the company was insolvent. In this case the trouble seems to be with Jay Gould and Kilpatrick Bros. & Collins. J. H. Smith & Co., are doing all they can, though they are no more bound to pay than Kilpatrick Bros. & Collins, nor as much so as the Union lHriiie. for whmi IrtA u-arl- wua rlrrt Kilpatrick Bros. & Collins took the con tract from the Union Pacific, J. H. Smith & Co. from them, and they in turn sub-let the contracts to a number of small contractors, who are directly re sponsible to the men for their wages. The sub-contractors cannot pay, because they are not paid, Smith & Co, cannot pay (though they have done their best) because Kilpatrick & Co. who are abun dantly able to do so, do not pay them iviijmtncK & co. who never pay a cent advances refuse to pay unless they are paid by the Union Pacific, and the Union Pacific is in the control of the most infamous scoundrel that ever wrecked a railroad and robbed under color of law, his fellow man. Jay Gould with his untold millions hides behind the corporations which are his cats paws, .and brings ruin and disaster on the labor and industries of the country, and as the laws are at present found is above their reach. There is a dawn of hope on tne political horizon, which may nsher in a brighter day. There is need of a new party, if for nothing else, to make the old parties do their duty to the people. When such a state of affairs can exist as that -in Portland, there is something lacking in the laws. ' We believe the growth of the new party will have a good effect on the old ones and cause them to pass some needed laws, instead of ' "- O"" V d. some measure which , will give one or the other political advantage. If the new party can accomplish this, it will not have been born in vain. SHALL WE MAKE THE EXHIBIT? We believe that $250,000 would not be a dollarstoo much to be expended by the Btate of Oragon in exhibiting her pro ducts at the Columbian fair next year. If Oregon makes an exhibit she should make it like the queen she is. If she cannot do that, she had better make no -exhibit at all. If we make a poor exhibit ;as compared to other states it will injure us instead of helping us. It will be said -of whatever we show, "It is Oregon's Tvaaf ' Anrl it St i'o n A4- 1 i I imd better not be shown. Another question arises, and that is, is the ex hibit at Chicago the best use to which $250,000 of the State's funds can be put? If it is not, then the expenditure should not be made. The whole matter is a business affair, and should be so treated. The Columbian fair offers Oregon a stated advertising space which will cost her $250,000. Will the advertisement bring her an adequate return?. We think it would, but at the same time we believe the money could be expended in a better cause, and made to yield quicker and larger returns, not perhaps to the State, as a State, but to the present in habitants thereof ; the people whose money will have to foot the bills. We believe that an appropriation to build a portage railway at the Cascades, and another at the Dalles of the Columbia, would prove a greater benefit te the present inhabitants of the State than any sum that might be expended in ad vertising our resources. An appropria tion of $250,000 by the State of Oregon, supplemented by alike sum from the state of Washington, would build and equip both these roads. The building and operating of the roads would save to the producers of the Inland Empire one million dollars a year. . The advertising of cur resources would bring other peo-; Tile Tl prf iiiCTvmaA nnr KliainDea onrf Tunl tiply our assessment roll, but this would not benefit . the farmers of the eastern portion of the State at least, to any great extent. As a matter of fact, with pres ent transportation facilities, Eastern Oregon now raises all the produce she can ship, and any increase of acreage, or yield,' until some means of transport ing it to the seaboard is provided, would be nothing less than a misfortune. If the State can spare the amount for ad vertising purposes after she has done her duty by her present citizens, the scheme is a good one. If she cannot, then her spare cash had better be ex- THE BEAUTIFUL NEW YEAR. What memories does this little sen tence awaken in your breast, of good old times, and perchance, of bette r days (or worse), that now are gone beyond recall, and who wants to recall them. There will ' continue to be new years, right along every 365 days, or at least that is what has happened in the past and each succeeding New Year will give you a new opportunity to swear off; to quit for a week or two, and then begin again for the next swearing off period And if New Years did not come along on schedule time, what .vouid the good people do with the little habits contracted for that especial uccusion, and what would be the use of living if we were deprived of one of the days in which the employe gets the drop on the old man, so to speak, and get paid for eating his New Year's dinner. And then what a chance we would lose in not watching the old year out and the new one in, not to speak of the head we would have in tho bright early morning of the infant year, and of the glorious opportunity ot swearing off again next year, and so on down the long line of years until we are so old that it looks bad to swear oft' at all, and we go down with our last year's sins on our head not swore off.

The Oregonian may be correct in its editorial in Wednesday's issue wherein it says, "gold is king," but it does not look that way. The dispatches the same day announce trouble in the senate, and the probable defeat of the election bill, on account of the silver bill. Silver, just now, is king. It is probable that Jay Gould would have no trouble in performing that apparently impossible feat mentioned in the Bible, of going through the eye of a needle. If he failed it would be the first case on record in which he failed to no through anything that he tackled. Died. At the home of her 'danrrr.i-.
