The question of the national control of railroad and telegraph systems ot the United states is being discussed in the papers. The monopolistic ten' denciea of all corporation have aroused the people to a realization of the fact that danger is threatened to the free institutions of this country by these combinations of capital, and for this reason very many believe that the government should take the man- ansement of them. J. he subject is a broad one, and a great many argu ments can be produced for and against the proposition. The regulation of rates would be a matter of legislation if the government had control of cor porations, and these could be reduced to the lowest minimum. This would be a great advantage to prodaceis and shippers, and excessive charges would not be any longer a cause of complaint The railroad and telegraph have be come "so necessary in the modern busi ness world that they should be placed cn an equal footing with the postoffice, and the great facilities offered by them should be within the reach of all citizens. If it is deemed important that communication between indidviduals bhould be a branch of government, and the price reduced to a mere pit tance, in it not as great necessity that the farmer and producer should enjoy the advantage of the railroad aad . steamship lines to take to market the product of the soil, and that all citi zens should have access to the tele graph at the 'lowest possible tariff? This century has been one of remark able advancement, and in the progress jf events matters which were once ,-nsidered luxuries are now almost ience of the people j;.;?.:al routes are established in every accessible portion of the country, and tor two cents a message will be taken thousands of m.!Iah Tn tit a f ii f 11 a ttin D4 m a natoo sity will exist for the telegraph and the railroad, and these will be branches of the public service. There are persons who think the governmental control of the railroad and telegraph systems of the country would partake too much of the parental form and tend to abridge the liberty of the c-iizen. If a greater evil can exist in a free country than the op pression of corporations we are at loss to conceive what it can be. By ' means of excessive charge railroad . have placed the heaviest burdens upon the people, and by reason of their im mense wealth have dictated legislation and attempted to control the judiciary, If everything should happen that the opponents of the postal telegraph and postal railroad have predicted it would still be a relief from what is now suf fered. The time may not have ar rived when the convenience a of the people demand that the railroads and the telegraphs be governmental insti tutions: but we shall anxiously watch the progress of events and shall heart ily welcome it when it comes, end be lieve it will be a rapid stride towards the liberation of the people from the tbralldom under which they now suffer. However strong the pretense of Democrats may be of loyalty to the government they will attempt to cover by every subterfuge possible the rec ord of t he partv in the past. We are acquainted with Democrats to-day, who were camping in the swamps be fore Richmond when the national con vention of their party at Chicago re solved that the "war was a failure," who will defend that action. This may appear strange; but the whole secret is that Democracy is a sort of Free Masonry, and its fealty to party according to the old mediaeval idea is above all other considerations. With few exceptions it is true, once a Dem ocrat always a Democrat. The rank and file acts and votes but does not think or cogitate. The idea is all that is necessary it expresses the rule of the people, and that governs them, It is far different with Republicans each individual is a thinking or co$v tatins machine. He thinks and acts for himself, and admits no dictation from any source. This is the reason that there are so many mugwumps in the organization. In one election the members may be all in line in an other all divided. President Cleve. land was elected by Republican votes in 1888, because they were dissatisfied with their candidate and the platform d:d not suit tnem. Democrats ore Democrats all the year round, and, like the law of the Medes and Per sians, never know a .change, ja the contrary, the adherents o? the Re publican party are attracted by every new ism, and one day are Prohibition ists, another Greenbackers, and so on. In almost every election the Democ racy draws its full strength. On tie contrary, rarely in any election, do the Republicans poll their full strength And this is the reason that in "off years" many states who are attached to the party elect Democratic officials. We hope this will always remain so, as the freedom of the individual is never so potentially expressed as at the ballot-box. drag mm The Democratic papers are not through with their jubilations over the victory in Ohio, and the editorial columns of every Bourbon exchange are still crowded with exultations over the recent election. However, strange it may appear to those unacquainted with the facts, it is nevertheless true that the Democracy has never won a yictory for the past quarter of a cen tury on purely partisan issues. The only president the party has elect ed since 1856, was in 1S84, and then Mr. Cleveland was elevated to the ex ecutive chair on civil service retain by aid of mugwump Republicans He proved untrue to his trust in everj particular, and in the following cam paign the party met a well-meriteo defeat at the polls. The late victor in Ohio was not a Democratic victory- but a defeat of the several ''isms" which clustered in and around the Re publican party. Prohibition in Iowa nearly caused the defeat of the Re publicans, not because the people be lieved in Democratic principles, but for the reason that the best interest of the commonwealth were not considered in harmony with the inhibition of the liquor traffic. In every instance, for the past quarter of a century in which the two parties untrammelled by outside alliances have come before the people for their suffrages, the De niocracy has met a crushing defeat The past record of the party does not recommend it to the patriotism of the American people, and its present stand upon the living issues of the day does not commend it to those who have the best interests of the nation at heart. . The silver convention in Denver Colo., adjourned yesterday. The most important resolution passed was for the remonetization of silver, and claim ing that the demonetization of this metal was the cause of many of the hardships now suffered by the labor ing classes. The business of the world is yet done on a gold basis, and silver is only used as a medium of exchange. If the United States . were to coin millions of silver dollars it would not 'iave the effect to increase the wealth f the country, not any more than the ame amount of greenbacks would. There is an item going "the rounds of the press" disparagingly of the Northwestern Fur Company and Hud son Bay company, in contradiction to an item which appeared in the columns of the Times-Mountaineer, relative to the death of. Mr. Alexander Mc- Tavish, some weeks since. It is true by a stroke of business policy these companies outwitted the Yankees in the northwest, but it is also a fact that they were the pioneers in showing to the civilized world the importance of this portion of the United States, and if they had not paved the way for the Labor is the basis of all values, and j advance of Anglo Saxon civilization, It is almost impossible to talk with a Democrat but that h will consider I the increase in the Deui icratic vote in Ohio and Iowa due to the doctrine of free trade. Partisans entirely overlook the local causes, and say the result was produced by the disaffection of the people towards the present policy of the Republican party. If such is the fact, then what is the reason that these states gave such large Republi can nifCorities at the last presidential electiou, when the question of protec tion free trade was directly in issue? The cold, ice-clad facts are, that both Ohio and Iowa are btrongly Republican when national issues are before the people, but when nothing but local questions are to be decided, party may be winner in th& either coLtesc. Eoulanger, libs Banquo's ghost, will not down at the bidding?, from nis retreat in the island of Jersey he casts anxious looks towards his native France, and the first eruption in the populur feeling, the General will step upon French soil, and Napoleon-like, will have a host under his control. New York's subscription for the world's fair amounts to $2,200,220. CbJcsgo should exceed this by a mill n if she displays her usual enterprise. Yesterday was a red letter day for Washington. A telegram was received stating that the president had issued his proclamation admitting the new state into'the union, and the news was received with general rejoicing. Flag3 were displayed, cannons boomed and the best talent of the new common wealth addressed their fellow citizens. The induction into the union will al ways be a grand event in the history of the state; but with these new habil iments which she has donned he has also assumed new and weighty resr"n- sioiuLiHs. one comes into the suitci- hood of states with cheering prospects for the future. A rich and highly favored country, possessed of a large and increasing population, with the development of her resources she may expect to take a commanding position in the great northwest. Her first vote cast was largely Republican, and it may be expected that she will always be found in the ranks of the party whose policy is best adopted to her interests. 'old is the basis of all exchange. The increase of silver will not increase he wealth of the country, because it oust be measured by the relative alue of gold. If the 'government could increase its wealth this way. a country could make any plentiful mineral a medium of exchange and legislate itself rich in a few weeks. in Yesterday we only credited Uncle Sam with giving birth to three bounc ing boys, through a typographical error. It should have been four, and they are prancing lads, who have made themselves heard. The two Ddkotas, Montana and Washingtou are as healthful progeny as was ever pro duced on the continent. Prince Murat, one of those Euro pean fortune-hunters, about whom one reads so many paragraphs in the pa pers, wanted to marry a rich Ameri can heires, but she would only allow him $10,000 a year for expenses, and he became angry and broke the en gagement The American peopl should be proud of such a young lady, as she somewhat redeems the charac ter of the women of the nation from being title-seekers. If Miss Hunt ington bad displayed an equal amount of good sence, a German profligate prince would not now be living clover upon the large fortune accumu lated in this republic, and brought him by his wife. The measure which we advocated some time Bince of a convention of as sessors is very important, and should receive immediate attention. There is a necessity of an equalized assess ment, and this can only be acconi plished by a meeting of the officials whose business it is to attend to this matter. We hope the assessors of Oregon will rightly understand this subject and will allow no delay in tak ing action. If taxes were equal in all counties there could be no complaint, and their collection would uu much easier. Gov. Pt nnoyer, in his appointments to the national silver convention named four men from Baker county, one from Union, one from Umatilla, one from Grant and none from Wasco county. 0..r friend, Bro. Cradle baugh of the Sun, is of the same polit ical predilections as the governor, and would have been a very eligible mem ber of the convention. He is an in telligent - man, of lift-long experience with the minerals of tha coast,-and should have been an appointee from this county. Ogden, Utah, is to have a Metho dist university, and these followers of the doctrines of grand old John Wes ley will strike tolling blows against polygamy and all sins of disloyalty gainst God and America. Geronimo.the murderous old Apache, is professing to be religious at Mount Yernon Barracks, Alabama; but he is the same kind of a Christian that Judas Iscariot was, who betrayed his Savior for forty pieces of silver. These In dians do not make good Sunday-school teachers, or artistic x pillars in the church, and efforts at converting them are generally a waste of precious time. 1 1 1 1 i 1 T" . - r -ma . . iub jawentea j.tev. jaarcus Whitman wouid not have crossed the continent in the dead of winter to save Oregon to the nation. The principal factors of these companies were hardy Scotchman the McDougals, the Mc Donalds, the McTavisbes, and the McKays men of indomitable perse verance and strict integrity of charac acter,. We are not of Scotch decent, but we cannot fail to give credit to whom credit is due. In their dealings I with the Indians they were honest and faithful to all promises, and, as a con sequence, never had any trouble with the abonginees. In many instances, by their benevolent interference they saved the infant settlements from frightful massacres. If the Americans Lad followed the plans adopted bv these honest Scotchmen, the history of Oregon and Washington would not have been blotted by the terrible murders and assassinations which now mark its pages. Oregonians should not be ungrateful, and bhould remem ber the kind acts of Dr. McLoughlin chief factor of the Hudson Bay Co. at Vancouver, who by unselfish benevo lence, saved many pioneer families from actual starvation. The settle ment of the northwest was simply a contest between Scotch sagacity and Yankee ingenuity, and if bur country men were worsted, we should not heap calumny upon those who now lie buried in our soil, and who made it possible for white men to live in what is now the most progressive portion of the union. Hon. W. H. Gray, of Astoria, the oldest pioneer of Oregon, died in Port land early this morning at the resi dece of his son-in-law, Jacob Kamm. He was about 80 years cf age, and had been for a long time a resident of Oregon. He was an honored cit izen and highly respected by all citi zens of the state. Smokeless powder is of the same nature as soundless thunder, and is of about as much consequence. Either one will not revolutionize the world in any particular, or allow one nation to conquer another in less time. There fore the matter is not of sufficient im portance to merit any discussion.

F, Buletin says Chairman Cooley of the Incerstate Commerce Commission argues from the free trans portation and excursion rates given by the railroads that rates are too high. The prevailing cry for a year or t wo has been that low rates were ruining the road. P. rhaps lower rates reg ularly collected and fewer special rates to favored interests might put the companies on a better basis.
