Sunday's Oregoniai was pub lished in the telegraphic columns an address by the state executive Repub lican committee of Mississippi. We may feet aBiiured that the Interests of this country will be carefully watched. The future looks bright for there- publics on the western hemisphere, and with a uniformity of interests they may work in harmony for self ish ends.

Unfortunately of affairs should be spread before the for 'the white czar he has no seaport American people. The address is as of any consequence except Archangel, follows: I and this in such a northern latitude . As Republicans of Mississippi I that it does not add to his importance we are compelled to withdraw our state ticket. We knew that our votes would be stolen and our voters driven from the polls, but we' hoped that in the larger towns and cities at least the semblance of free speech might still remain to us, but our can didates are not safely allowed to dis cuss or protest. We desired especially to go before the whole people of the state and challenge the Democrats to a comparison of principles and record?. When the armed revolution of 1875 wrested the state from us, Mississippi was the only Southern state unbur dened with a state debt She has a Democratic one. Mississippi is gov erned by a minority despotism, and we appeal to our country for redress. The constitution that we adopted is the only one in the South so satisfac tory now that it has not been changed. Our laws stand substantially . un changed . and unrepealed, but we are Republicans and this is our offense. For fourteen years, ever since the infamous Mississippi plan was sdopted our path has been mark ed by the blood of our slain not only the well-known leaders who bravely died, but faithful followers known only in the cabins of the lowly. We refer not only to such well-known slaughter as those of Kemper and Copiah, Clinton and Carrolton, Wakalak and Vicksburg, Yazoo city and Le Flore, but nameless killings as a maratime power. The allied na tions of Europe control the Dardan elles. and in every instance lie has been balked of accomplishing his pur pose. At the dose of the last war with Turkey his victorious armies was in f'lll march towards Constantinople until the guns of the British fleet were pointed towards Ins soldiers and he called a halt. If it had not been for the statesmanship of lieaconsfield Russia to-day would have had control of the narrow strait between the Black and the Mediter ranean seas, and would have dom inated the commerce of southern Europe. But the bull-dog tenacity of the British premier stopped this game of the wily despot, and ever since he has looked jealously towards this out let to the ocean. From the past his tory of Russia for two hund red years, it is reasonable to believe that these Turkish barbarities are manufactured by Russian diplomats to pick a quarrel wiili Turkey to get to the Mediterranean. The facts of this matter are that the Sultan's govern ment has been more liberal and lenient towards Christians and unbelievers in Mohammedonism than Russia. ltv frp.lr nnrl hflvnn. nn tiiorfiwava nnH J J i &" -j - I m i l i J r J by ways.

We have no room nor. welcome for any such in America, and it would be ad visable that every individual member emigrate to some more congenial clime. visable course for men of brains and enterprise in thi3 age of the world. Poor Livingstone ended his life in almost fruitless explorations, and Stanley's fate may be the same. From our territorial exchanges it seems that every town in' Washington I is increasing in wealth and prosperity and we are sorry we cannot say the same of the cities of Oregon. There are four cities in Washington with more population than any city in Ore gon. except Portland, which, a few years ago, were only small towns, The natural resources of this state are equal to any in the union, and tli only reason for the growth of Wash ington is the indomitable energy the people-in pushing business of nl kinds forward. This energy will build cities in desert places, and tak every advantage of channels of trade. Oregon appears to be. devoid of enter . ... . I. prise, and lies dormant wmie ncr neighbor is advancing. We cannot tell how long this will continue: but we presume until new blood supplant the sluggish current which now exists. North Dakota is suffering much worse from drcuth than Eastern Ore gon or Eistern Washington. Many families there are on the point of star vation, and relief must be speedy or there will be intense suffering from cold and lack of food. In one county in that ter ritory there have been three suc cessive failures of crops, and the present shortage in Eastern Oregon is the only cne experienced within the memory of any living white man. The Democrats have had glory enough in the resignation of Tanner as Commissioner of Pensions, and now see something delightful in the wordy warfare between him and Secretary Noble. Perhaps Cor poral Tanner was too much influenced in his official duties by friendliness towards his old comrades, but this is more easily excused than a pat) y to wards them. He may have talked too much; but he fought almost as hi during the era in our national -exist ence when foes from within and with out were attempting to undermine our free institutions. Corporal Tanner hobbles around nn two wooden pins, and every American must respect his patriotism and forgive his foibles. some lapse of years before the negro could take his place as an intelligent factor in the body politic; but in the interval he must be educated to the importance of the right granted him, and no sort of bull-dozing will ac complish this object. Intelligence has never been made a requirement of citizenship, the only requisites be ing race and pa riotism, and the former was abolished by the amend ments passed after the war. Full privileges as citizens have been granted our colored people, and there is every reason that the law should be enforced by the full power of the gov ernment if necessary. It is a disgrace to our free institutions and the chiv alric spirit of the south that the most cowardly and cruel means should be used to destroy the Republican vote in that portion of the country. We are glad to notice that the leading Democratic papers in some of the southern states have boldly denounced the methods in use, and there is hope that in a few years public sentiment will, demand equal protection for the ballot to'all classes and races in every state of the union. Europe other nations will not sympa thize w ith the movement, but will use the force of arms to keep the despot in check. A MERCHANT MARINE. Since, the rebel privateers drove our commerce from the high seas the mer chant marine of the United States bas not been very large. A good portion of our products has been car ried in foreign bottones, and the grain fleets which leave our shores annually have been principally composed of English ships. It may be that with the increase of diversified industries it was found more advantageous to sell our products at home than to export them. But the policy of pro- The growth of the west is nowhere more apparent than in the four new states which will soon be admitted into the union. New Tork, with her 36 electoral votes, has always been considered the pivotal state of the. union, and during elections a common saying is, "As goes New York so goes the nation." But Mr. Frank Hiscock, senator from New York, says this will bi true no longer. The center of pop ulation is moving west, and the day is not far distant when the voice of Cali fornia, Oregon, Washington and Idaho will not be unheeded in the national legislature. After the next census the states which now have such a pre ponderance ot representation will wit ness others in the line of progress, and whose votes in congress, if consoli dated, will outnumber tbeirr. "Westward the star of empire takes its way," is as true now as it was fifty years ago, and its course will only be stopped on this continent by the waves of the Pacific The growth of the northwest during the last de cade has been phenomenal, and it will be so during the next ten years. With the advent of railroads and the erection of manufacturing industries We have several ti it- call A t! e attention of the readers of the Times mountaineer to the tact that mines of gold, silver and coal could be made accessible to this city, and by the ex ercise of proper business enterprise they could be made a factor of de velopment to this city. Appropos of this subject, Mr. Crandall has just returned from the Clackamas mines, distant about seventy miles, and brought with him some very fine specimens. These contain good indications, and it is very likely they will assay well. However this may be, it would be a good plan for our business men to develope some of the sources of mineral wealth which are tributary to this city. Senator Dolph is right when he says the standard gauge theory for over coming the obstructions between The Dalles and Celilo is a "political hobby of Gov. Pennoyer and ridden to deal ." The board of engineers have decided on a boat railway, .and to spring a new scheme on them is only to indefinitely postpone matters for the relief of producers and shippers in the Inland Empire.

TELEGRAPHIC. GREAT STORMS AT SEA. Sax Fbascisco, Oct. 23 The steamer Cosmopolis, which arrived in port to-day from Uray s harbor, met with rough weather on her way down. Captain Dett mers reports that when off Cape Blanco the steamer's shaft was bent and three blades ot her propeller were broken oiF by beavv seas. She was also short of coal, and had to beat her way dowa in her disabled condition against a strong head wind. The steamer St. Paul, Captain Erskine, thirteen days from Ounalaslta, arrived in port this evening with tweuty-eight sa loon and forty-eight steerage passengers. She reports having experienced strong cast and southeast winds during the pa&t ten days with heavy rains. She left at Ounalaska Octoker 9, the steamer Dora and the schooner Pear and both were to leave for San Francisco a few days later. Her cargo consisted of nineteen hundred cases of salmon and twelve packages of personal effects. A HORRIBLE 6IGHT. Sacramexto, Oct. 22. The coroner this morning wus notified that a maD was run over by the train near Antelope, and scDt a man out after the body. It was iound that he was horribly mangled. His legs were split open and broken in several places. Hips were knocked from their sockets and his ribs broken. The skull was mashed in and altogether the remains presented a horrible sight. A card in. his pocket read "Dick O'Mallcy." Deceased wore good clothes and hud 275 on his person. He was probably lun over by the train last night. LONGEVITY RATION CASE. Washington, Oct. 22. Army officers are much interested in a longevity ration case now pending before Second Comp troller Giikeson, involving the question of pay ior longevity ratioss for almost every officer in the army. The total amount ot all claims involved is about $1,500,000. When the first claim was presented to the second auditor it was disallowed. The court of claims, however, decided that officers were entitled under the law to an allowance for longevity rations, and the supreme court affirmed the decision. The second comptroller still hesitates to allow the claim", as he is douotful as to whether the decision of the su preme court operates to reopen account; that have already been settled. The sec ond comptroller has devoted much time and thought to the case, aud has finally written to the attorney-general asking his There is a rumor afloat that Chit f Arthur is cn trial at the engineers' convention in Denver.

The Journal claims that the state's attorney has two witnesses who saw Cronin driven up to the cottage and watched him enter. It is also said that evidence will be pro duced to show that four men took part in the murder, Coughlin, Coolcy, Bulk, aud a man not yet arrested or indicted.
