SATURDAY NOVEMBER 33, 1SS9 IMMUNITY FOR HOMICIDE. It is a met delicate matter for newspapers to criiicise the verd.ct of juries, for the very good reason that they may Dot know the nature of the evidence produced. Editors may be informed of the facts from eye-wit nesses, but these may be given differ- ently bpfore the jury. It ia the prov ince of a jurr.al to upheld the morals of the community; but before adverse " criticism is made careful examination should be made that nothing is stated incorrectly and unjustly. Because of this, the Times Moustaineer has been wary in criticising a verdict ad versely, although in many instances the editor believed that crime has gene unpunished. There are faults in our jury system, faults in the manner of receiving testimony, and other faults which may admit of a possible remedy, although no apparent one is discerni ble at present. In time something may be done and the people will wel cjme any cfcang which will deter vicious men from taking human life, for these who commit lesser crimes have buffered cs severe punishment During the last few ynars men have been fehot and killed like brutes, pounded to death with stonts and butchered with a pocket-knife on the public streets in open daylight, and we are sorry to say the greatest crime a Wasco county jury ha3 ever found aaiast a criminal during this time has been manslaughter, and the longest term in the penitentiary to which a criminal has been sentenced, 15 years. There Lave bef n et:verl persons who. apparently, have committed felonious homicide and been acquitted, and very niany who were guilty of larceny are now serving their sentences in the penitentiary. From these facts it up- uears that property is saicr in tine county than human life. This is deplorable Btate of affairs, and there is homethinz wronir somewhere. The de- cision in the I. Oregon Gocdall vs. the State says it ia only necessary ' for the person to bdieve he is ia rnmi nent danger tf j.reat bodily harm for him to be justified in killing his assail ant before an actual assault has been committed. This is wrong. It placing too cheap a value on the lives of citizens, for the "great bodily harm ' may happen at any time during ex citement, and the best people may be ' made food for powder and bullet on the slightest provocation. We hop' onr supreme court will reverse this decision, and giva us mote protection for life. A ftw weeks ago a harmless, though loquacious, boy was stabbed to death in open t'aylight near this office by an infuriated quarter-breed negro, We were surprised when the grand iurv indicted the cr'mina' for muider ai f in the sec md df gree,an i more surprised when a very intelligent jury brought in a "verdict of manslaughter, with a recommendation to the mercy of the court." The testimony wa3 such, we havo been informed, as to warrant such a verdict and we are greatly sur prised that from the facta we hf ard that such evidence could have been given. Bat then witnesses are in dif ferent moods when they relate an oc- c irrence to a newspaper man than when they tell it before a court and jury, and tho one may appear a cruel, felo nious homicide, subject to the severest p malty of the law and the ether a mere matter of natural self-defense. Per haps this is the reason that there is so much disappointment manifested by the people tbjut these murder trials, It may be a fact that circumstances as viewed in open daylight are different and more criminal than when seen in the shadow of a court house. At lpr.ot, from the numerous acquittals and verdicts of manslaughter in thus county, when men have been killed with premeditated malice, it would appear so. This may be for the bene fit of the lawyer and client, but it has a withering and blighting effect upon the community. It teaches that the I rutes, in human shape, cf this world may take their levenge upon innocent people for the leatt truuiped-np provocation, and go scot-free before the law. The effect of these light ver diets is to grant an immunity to mur derers and human butchers, and force men who believe in peace atid moral ity, to laid together for their own protection. Thero is no use in dis- cuisintr the fact that this excuse of crimes only emphasizes tho necessity of fome method being adopted by which feciety is proptrly piotected, . and human life is safe from the on slaughts of cowards and 1 ullies. Mr. Henry M. Stanley, who has been immured in the woods of Africa for a long time, has again become .known to the orld. This celebrated . explorer has suffered many hardships, brought Em in Pasha to light, and claims that he has made great and im portant discoveries in the heart, of the Dark Continent. Mr. Stanley has won lasting renown for himself; but it is very questionable if he could not have employed his energy and genius to a better use in some other field cf intellectual labor. Hon. Geo. H. Pendleton, a promi nent Democratic politician, who died recently in foreign lands, was a leader in his pir y. Of a pure, upright social life, he so'.s owu to the grave lamented bv all He was candidate for vice-president in 1864, and alwajs occupied a prominent position in the councils of his party. England does not want the earth o she on'y wants all there is of any worth in the United S'ates. She owns vast tracts of i&nd in tl o vest, has large railrovJ interests, and is now at tempting to buy up the breweries. When she accomplishes this feat, her avaricious eyes will bo turned ia an other ireotion. '' Every town on the Sound appears to be enjoying great prosperity, and all kinds of business seem to be in a most flourishing condition. This was superinduced by the construction of the K. P. railroad, and the consequent developement of the resources of the couutry. That Putet Sound has safe anchorage and can be entered from the ocean without mucn danger no one will deny; and for this reason it has long been predicted that eventually a large commercial point would grow into prominence in that portion of the northwest. The coal mines and lum ber trade may cause quite an export trade from the sound for many years, and on the strength of these very many towns may spring into existence and enjoy prosperity for a while; but in time business will settle down to one or more prominent places. Notwith standing these advantages enjoyed by the sound, there are points in Oregon equally if not more fortunately situated, This state has two navigable streams, which drain a large portion of the country, and which furnish excellent opportunities for cheap and direct communication with the ocean. Puget Sound has no such tributaries, and commercial intercourse mast be had with the interior by means of railroads. This is a prestige which the Oregon seaport wuerever it may be lo cated po.-.eesses superior to any other one in the northwest, and which, with the exhibition ot enter prise, will make the city in Oregon surpass that of Washington. It is true that the lack of pluck and energy on our part ha allowed our neigh bor to make rapid strides in advance ment during the past few years; but i his will not always continue. There ill come a time in the future when Oregon will arouse herself from the lethargy which has acted as an obstacle to all attempts to inaugurate man ufacturing industries, and this grand commonwealth will take the proper j.ositiou that nature designvd she .iliGiitd occupy as a commercial and manufacturing stato. The free-trade policy of Great Britain has not I ecu conducive of a prosperous state of finances, however much members of the Cobden club may say it is. There are some British statesmen who carefully analyze the existing state of afl'iirs, and who can arrive at an unprejudicd conclusion re garding an econoaic policy for the na tion. The following extract from a speech of Sii Randolph Churchill, five V?ar3 ago, clearly outlines ti.e financial outlook at that time: "Turn your eyes where you will, survey any branch of. British indus try you like, you will find moral dis ease. The self-satisfied radicul phil osophers will tell you it is nothing; they point to the great volume of British trade. Yes, the volume of British trade is still large, but it is a volume which is no longer profitable. It is working and struggling, so do the muscles and nerves of the body of a man who has been hanged twitch and work violently for a short time after the operation. But death is there-ail the same, life has utterly departed, and suddenly comes the rigor mortis. "Well, with this state of British in d us try, what do you find going on? lou find foreign iron, foreign wool. foreign silk and cotton pouring into the country, sinking you, swamping you; your labor market is congested wages have tunk below the level of life, the misery in our large towns is too frightful to contemplate, and etui- gration and starvation is the remedy whicn the radicals offer you with the most undisturbed complacency. But what produced this state of things) Free imports? I am not sure; should like an inquiry; but I suspect free imports of the murder of our in dustnes, much in the same way as if found a man standing over a corpse, and plunging bis - knife into it should suspect that man of homicide, and I should recommend a coroner' inquest and a trial by jury." The Democratic press are exceed ingly jubilant over the success of the disintegrating factors of the Republ can party in Ohio and Iowa, and claim the elections indicate a desire of the people for a return of the Democratic administration in national affairs. Fo nearly twelve years that party had possession of the lower he use of con gress and for four of the executive chair, and if any one can tell any good they did-for the nation we would will ingly make note of the fact. The complete control of affairs during one presidential term appeared to have so disgusted the American people that, at tho next opportunity, they not only defeated the presidential candi date, but changed the political com plexion of the lower house. The Democratic party will have to be born again before it can hope for success, and Mr. Mills or Mr. Carlisle must not be god-fathers to the child. To-morrow as a holiday will be gen erally observed in every state in the union. I a observance dates back to the time of the Puritans, when that religious people set apart one day every year for prayer and thanksgiv ing. In recent times i. has deterior ated to a day of joyful re-unions and feasting?, and if some of the first Bet tiers could look upon the dinner in dulged in by their descendants they would . undoubtedly exclaim, "Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, aud all is vanity. It will truly be a day of thanksgiving if we bountifully remem ur the poor, and see that they receive some portion of our abundance. Senator Mitchell has prepared sev eral important bills to be introduced during the coming session of congress, and we are glad to note that he is not unmindful of the Columbia river, the only relief of Eistern Oregon from railroad monopoly. The completion of the locks a the Cascades and of a boat railway between this city and Celilo are absolutely necesssary for tho developement of this country, and we hope the Oregon and Washington del egation will work in harmony on this important question of the removal of obstructions to the novigation of the real river of the west, 1 Dr. Giffen the statistician of the British Board of Trade, says Brad streets, is an economist who sometimes has been thought by others than bi- metalists to lean in the direction of bimetallism, and he has been quoted as an authority in discussions by bimetallista. Some of his published statements seemed to give color to this view of his opinions. For example, in discussing economic changes since 1873, in a papr read before the Lon don Statistical Society in December last on "lieccut Changes in Prices and Incomes," he said that "IS73 the al teration in the economic movement was in money, and to this must be as- scribed the change of prices which has occurred." Iu this statement Dr. Gillm would see'u to insist that money is the mam factor in the chance in prices. Hi; linn lately contributed paper to the Kineleeilh CeiUnry in which he seems to take a contrary po sition, declaring that "it is the range of prices as a part of the general eco nomic condition which helps to deter mine the quantity of money in use, and not the quantity of money in use which determines prices." The two statements here put in juxtaposition would seem to be clearly inconsistent, thouh, perhaps, Dr. Giffen may be able to reconcile them. There can be no doubt, however, from the criticism of bimetallism which he makes in his paper, that ha can no longer bi re garded as leaning towards bimetallism. The Dalles, the coming season, should surprise the whole country. This city has more natural resources than any other on the Columbia, and, if proper enterprise was exhibited, should show a creater growth than any town in Oregon. A beef packing establishment should be started here with the opening of the season, and this should give employment to two or three hundred people. This is the best point in the Inland Empire for such an enterprise, and if it be put in operation it would be a means of increasing our wealth two-fold. Aside from this a woolen factory, and other manufacturing industries could be operated with great bene fit to the buinrfij of ths community We hope some of the wealth ' which has been made in this city for the last quarter of a century will be expended during the coming year in placing in ooeration some of the most desirable fedora for our development. The Dalles has the best prospects of any town in the northwest, and if we do not lead any other city east of the Cascades the fault lies at our own door. Tho policy of the dominant white race in the south towards the negroes has become obnoxious to the honest men of the Democratic party, and Gov. Hill, of New York, a probable candidate for president on the Bour bon ticket, gaye a stinging rebuke to his partisans for their cruel conduct towards thia dependent people. The leading papers of the party in the south have also spoken in condemna tory language of the oppressive and unfair treatment of the colored people. Public opinion is being aroused to the importance of a free ballot and equal protection to all citizens of whatever race or color, and southern Democrats cannot muzzle the dough-faces of the north to obey their behests in this re gard. The colored man must have equal rights in the exercise of the elective franchise with the white, or else the Democracy at the ballot box will experience a series of defeats. The party understand this, and for thia reason are changing their former position on the question. A Pendleton exchange classes The Dalles as a "suburb" of Portland. This idea is both original and unique Whatever there is of Eastern Oregon has been made by this city. It has advertised the resources of the region, advocated an open river, and has been attacked by Portland on this account. When The Dalles becomes a suburb of Portland, strange things will happen, unconceived at present. But the fact is, that- thia point and the metropolis are wide apart, and there ia Lot an improvement in which we are inter ested but Eastern Oregon would be greatly benefited thereby. The Democracy is preparing its slate for next June, and we have heard can didates for nearly all the officers to be elected at that time; but so far no mention of a U. S. senator has been made. If the Democrats can gather any substantial hopes from the results in Ohio and Iowa, it is high time they were squaring their senatorial timber. The fact is, they can build no expect a tion fro oi these states in an off-year, and for that reason are willing to wait aud watch developments. Dora Pt'dro, like a sensible and hu mane monarch, when the flames of revolution threatened his throne did not make a funeral pyre of his loyal subjects; but quietly abdicated and left the country. How much less iniquity he will have to answer for than many monarchs who have drenched their country in the blood of those who held to the superstition of the "divine rights of kings." If Mrs. Southworth had appealed to the courts to have her betrayer pun ished, very little if anything would have been done to him. Having in fluence, money and social standing his crime would have been condoned, and she alone would have been the sufferer. The fate which Pettus, her seducer, met, may be a warning to others and deter them from using ' their devilis'i arts upon defenseless woman. The Olympia legislature are work ing with might and main, and bills are being introduced to regulate- all evils. When taxes commence to be collected next year the people un doubtedly will consider that they are governed too much. If the Oregon delegation at Wash ington in their recommendations tor federal positions fail to recognize "Eastern Oregon" thpy will be com mitting a sprious blunder. And when we say "Eastern Oregon" we don't mean "The Dalles," which 18 only a suburb of Portland. This section of the state'will give 2,000 Republican majority next June if it is properly treatPU by the administration. Pen dleton Tribune. There is no city in Oregon eastern or western that has been so com pletely ignored by Portland as The Dalles. Insignificant points, w ith not half the population or the natural re sources, are mentioned daily in the Clre.nonian. while the cateway of the -"- ' - great Inland Empire is passed in sig nificant silence. During the past sea son Mr. Max Vogt, of this city, has built and almost completed the largest opera house and hall in the state, yet the great paper, which pretends to be the exponent of the advancement of the northwest, has never mentioned the fact. Before the Tribune was even conceived, the Mountaineer was doing valiant work for the Inland Em pire, and advocated an open rivir from Kettle Falls to tho sea before it knew Oregon existed or there was such a river as the Columbia. There is a pertinent question for free-traders to answer, and that is, if protection is such a diabolical policy why do so many subjects of free-trade Great Britain annually seek the shores of protected America? Again, if free-trade is so beneficial, why does every English colony adopt the policy of protection, in opposition to that prevalent' in the mother country When our friends can fully and satis factorily answer these questions, it will be time to advocate a change in the economic policy of the United States. The Portland and the Salem boards of trade have adopted resolutions in favor of Chicago as the place for hold ing the world's fair in 1892. The Dalles should follow the example of these two leading cities, and give Chi cago its endorsement. This great city of the lakes is representative in every thing that is western and progressive. Levelled to the ground in 1871, she has since recovered from her losses and is now the second city in popula .tion and undoubtedly the first in en terprise. The Seattle Leader, the prohibition paper of the new state, still hurls its invectives at the Republican party. It haa more friendliness toward any other organization, and seem deter mined to force the party to obey its behests or ruin it at every opportunity. But it cannot do this, and it would be wise if prohibitionists would change this policy and strive only for the amelioration of the race from the evils of intern perance. The president is warmly commend ed by Harper's Weekly for his appoint ments to the Civil Service Commission. Mr. Harrison can't be wholly de praved if Mr. Curtis can see some thing worthy of praise in his actions. The lesson of the recent fall elec tions to the Democracy means victory in 1892; 'to Republicans a complete devorcement from all "isms" in tho next presidential campaign, and strong hopes of victory. A CHAXCE FOB AS .EXPLORER. A Section of Washington Wh I eh Has Siever Been Visited by a white 31 an. Seattle Press, Washington has her great unknown land like the iu tenor of Africa. The country shut in by the Olympic mono tafos, which includes an area of about 2500 square miles, has never, to the posi tive knowledge of old residents of the ter ritory, been trodden by the foot of man, white or Indian. These mountains rise from the level couutry, within 10 or 15 miles from the straits of San Juan de Fuce in the north, the Pacific ocean in the west, Hood's canal in the east and the basin of the Quinalt lake in the south, aod rising to a bight of 6000 or 8000 feet, shut id a vast unexplored area. The Indians have never penetrated it, tor their traditions say that it is In habited by a very fierce tribe, which none of the coast tribes dared molest. Though it is improbable that such a tribe could have existed id this mouutaiu coun try without their presence becoming known to the white men, no man has ever ascertained that it did not exist. White men, too, havo only vague accounts of any man havrng ever passed through this couotry, for investigation of all the claims of travelers has invariably proven that they have only trayersed its outer edges. The most generally accepted theory in regard to this country is that it consists of great valleys stretching from the in ward slopes of the mountains to a great central oasin. lluatDeory is supported by the fact that, although the country around has abundant ram and clouds constantly baug over the mountain tops, all the streams flowing toward the four points of the compass are insignificant. and rise only on the outward slopes of the range, none appealing to drain the great area shut in by the mountains. Tins fact appears to support the theory that the streams flowing from the inner slopes of the mountains feed a great in terior lake. But what drains this lake It must have an outlet somewhere, and as all the streams pouring from the moun tains rise on their outward slopes, it must nave a subteirani-aa outlet into the ocean, the straits or the sound. There are great discoveries in store for some of Washington s explorers. A gentleman named Drew, now resid ing at Olympia, states that he has climbed to the summit of the eastern range from Hood's canal, and looking down could see great valleys stretc' ing toward the west. A party of railroad prospectors claim to have penetrated the interior, but could give no account of it, and appear only to nave sKirteti trie outer slopes, 10 or 15 miles from liooa's canal. A party of United States soldiers is said to have traversed the country from Port Town- send, but no data are obtainable as to what they saw. Numerous attempts have been made to organize exploring parties, but they have invariably fallen through, the courage of tne pnjectors oozing out at the last mo ment. There is a tine opportunity for some of the hardy citizens of the Sound to acquire fame by unveiling the mystery which wrapt the land encircled by the snow-capped range. Now ia the time to plant Holland bnlba and lilies.

Lynn, the city of shoe?, was visited this afternoon by the greatest fire In its history, and, with two exceptions, the conflagration is the most disastrous that ever visited New Eugland. The fire started about noou, raged over eight hours, devastated a square mile of the business section of the city, and caused a loss estimated at 110,000,000. In fact the greater part of Ward Four is wiped out, as regards the important shoe manufacturing blocks and prominent places of business. The fire started in Mower's wooden buildiog on Calmont street, and soon communicated with the six-story brick block known as Mower's block. Almost simultaneously the four-story wooden shoe factory of Bennett & Barnard, on Central avenue, and the tour-story wood en building on Almont street caught fire. At and alter this time a hurricane of flame was in progress. The burned territory includes dwelling houses too numerous to mention, besides a vast area of husiuess blocks. Aid arrived from Boston, Salem, Mai ble head. and the surrounding towns. After the fire bad been in progress two hours everybody declared that it would not stoo until it reached the ocean, and such proved the case. Four daily newspapers are burned out, the Item, Bee, Press, and News. There were many narrow escapes from accidents, but no fatalities reported. The high brick fare-wall of the B. F. Spinney block served as a barrier to the further progress ot the flames up Union street. After that handsome structure was gutted, three national banks, the Central, Security and First National, to gether with the Lynn Institution for Sav ings, located in the First National block, weie all wiped out. Twelve of the finest shoe blocks in the city are in ruins, and about twenty-five stores. At this writ ing it is impossible to state how many dwelling bouses are burned. They were mostly occupied by the poor class, in the vicinity of Beach street and the wharves. The Central Congregational church was burned to the ground. Lynn's costly blaze. Lynn, Mass., Nov. 27. The city is pat ruled by militia 250 men being on duty, stationed at the entrance of the ruined streets, barring approach to the burned district. The guard is strict. Guards are stationed at the stores, which have been partially cleaned out, to pre vent thieves from taking what is left. No one is permitted to pass the guards without a permit from the city clerk. Through the associated chanties many families were furnished lodgings last night in rooms hired at lodging and dwelling bouses, and rations of hot sonp, crackers and bread are being serve! to all in need of food. As soon as some plan for assistance can be devised, the work of providing for the destitute families will progress rapidly. THE ESTIMATED LOSS. Boston, Nov. 27. The manufacturers here are ot the opinion that the total loss at Lynn is nearly $5,000,000. ' The num ber of buildings'burned Is 296, of which forty two were brick block, 112 wooden buildings used for business purpose, and 142 dwellings occupied by 164 families. The number of laboring people thrown out of work is estimated at 8000. A BABK WRECKED. Asdory Pake, Nov. 2j. The bark Gsrinania loaded with empty oil barrels and rags, was wrecked to-night at Long Branch. Before the ' lifeline could be shot out to her the veisel's spar went overboard and the vessel quickly went to pieces and disappeared. Five ot the saiiors were rescued. Captain Windhorst and eight sailors were drowned. When the vessel struck, the captain, it is said, was drunk. He drew a revolver to shoot the man at the wheel when a wave swept him into the sea. The bark sailed from Stettin September 30, for New York. COLD WEATHER AND SNOW EVERYWHERE, EXCEPT IN OREGON. Washington, Nov. 27. The signal office savs: A general storm is now pre vailing over the country east of the Mississippi. It has been increased great ly in intensity and danger from the gales on tne lakes and win be much enbauced by the severe character of the cold wave, The indications cilice said to-night The weather map resembles the condi tions closely that existed on the night preceding the great buzzard out in Da kota.

A heavy snow storm prevails in the midland counties. ROBBED. Olympia, Nov. 27. A daring robbery was committed lasLevening in the build ing next to the Carlton house, which is used as an annex to the main building for lodging purposes. Two gentlemen were rooming in the building, and to their astonishment they found this morn ing their room bad been entered during the night and watches, money and some trinkets had been abstracted. Several drafts on the National Bank of the Re public, of Saginaw, Mich , were also stolen, the numbers of which are as fol lows: 3866, 3807. 3809, 9740 and 9741. Payment of the drafts has been stopped. but innocent parties are liable to get hold of them between this city and Fort- land, and perhaps cash tbem. Twenty- four worthless vagabonds have been ex pelled from the citv since yesterday through the efforts of the chief of police and Ins clbcers, all ot whom are deter mined that Olympia shall be rid of sucb scum. A FAMOUS CASE ENDED. Denver, Nov. 27. The famous Dur- aot Bonny bel case, which has been on trial in the United States district court for the past sixteen days, came to an end at 10 o'clock to-night, the jury giving to liounybel a verdict tor the second time. me case is famous among mining men throughout the couutry for the reason that millions of money depended on the verdict. Reports come from Aspen to the effect that tho city is wild over the verdict, and in" Denver wine is flowing like water at all ot me hotels at the ex- pen e of the Bonn) bel owners. A big fire at the hub. Boston, Nov. 28 The fire bell rang out through the driving rain at 8:15 o clock thu morning, and in less than a half hour there was a foundation for another Boston fire.

At 9 :45 steamers were oa the way from Taunton is answer to Chief Weber's call. Shortly alter 9, it looked as if the flames would advance without a hindrance up Kingston to Summer street. Brown, Durell & Co.'s building was now a heap of glowing rains. The old buildings at No. 30 Kingston street now began to light up, and the Brainerd & Armstrong Company's build ing was jU3t catching. The group ot desperate hre-fighters were being forced to recede inch" by inch. The building occupied by Bradford & Thomas and Aine's building were inyolved in the general destruction. Eastward the fire thirty minutes later had reached the Freedman building on the corner ot Lincoln and Bradford streets, while to ward Washington street its limit at the same time 9.30 was Chauncey street. It was reported that a dead body had been taken out of the premises of Cluett, Koon & Cn at 74 Chauncey street. Just before 10 o'clock assistance reach ed the scene from Cambridge. The agents of a large number of the insurance companies interested were seen by a reporter and asked as to their losses. The risks which could be ascertained to day amount to nearly $ 2,750,000, while a large number of companies have not yet been beard from. The fire, coming as it does on top of the great blaze at Lynn, is a' crushing blow to many of the smaller insurance companies, aud it is not at all unlikely that it will cause tho suspen sion of some of tbem. shot from behind. Salem, Nov. 28. A special from Rose burg says: F. Cam, a track walker for the Southern Pacific Company, was mur dered last night, between 10 and 11 o'clock, by unknown parties, five miles south of Riddles. He was shot with a Winchester rifle from behind through the heart, while just cutside the door, and drugged into the bouse and the door closed. They searched his trunk and room, and took a watch, a 33 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver and a small amount of money. There is no clue to the perpetrators of the crime. UXSUKVEYF.O liASDS. Surveyor eneral or Oregon Fxplalas Jluw They May be Opened up. . The following is an extract from a let ter of the Surveyor-General to one of his correspondents, making inquiries as to the mode of proceedure in asking for a survey of public lands: "The appropriation made by congress for public surveys for the cuirent fiscal year (which commenced on September 1) was $200,000. This under the law and regulations, must be expended for 'town ships occupied, in whole or part, by act ual settlers with improvements; and the surveyors shall be confined to lands ad apted to agriculture and lines of reseiva tions.' "In order to secure sureys, the depart ment requirement is that application thereto should be addressed to this office. "The settlers living upon the unsur veyed lands in the vicinity should unite in a petition to survey. The petition should be accompanied by a statement showing the number of bona-fide settlers, the character of the unsurveyed lands, the nature and value of the improve ments and the area under cultivation stating, if possible, the township. The approximate general course ot such valley, or valleys should also be noted. For several years past it has been the policy of the General Land office to pro hibit the survey of her forest or heavily timbered lands; but it may be necessary under the requirements of the Appropri ate Act (Second Session Act, Fiftieth congress, chapter 411, page 959) to make some modification ot this restriction. There are in some localities fine agricul tural lands which although heavily tim bered, or occupied in part by bona-fide settlers, who at great loss and expense have made tor themselves permaneut homes to which they are anxious to ob tain title. Whenever such cases arise, all the facts as to the character of the lands, and the kinds and quality of the timber, in addition to the information as to the number of settlers and the char acters of their improvements, should be fully presented lor the consideration of this office and ot the general land office. The Hon. Commissioner will allow the awarding of contracts for the survey of timber lands when their value for agri- nnUM.al - nn .a mall u(.kll..L.J 1 cultuial purposes is well established, and satisfactory proof is given of their occu pation by bona-fine settlers who have made permanent improvements. "Upon receipt of the petition I wilt forwafd the same to the general land office with an estimate of the cost of the desired surveys and such recommenda tions as this office may deem proper. In the event of the survey being ordered by the Hon. Commissioner, the expense thereof will be paid by the gov- erment." A Pipe Wltha Hlatory. East Oregonlmn. Indian Agent Moorhouse now smokes a pipe with a history, and one which serves as a dumb, but eloquent memento of "old times." He too delight in relat ing the following story of the pipo to his mends, between puns, as the smoke as cended in a hlmy vapour from the bowl and was lost in the surrounding atmos phere: "It belonged to Eagan, the mighty war chief of the Bannocks, and one of the noblest specimens of Indian manhood and savagery that ever scalped an enemy or led a party ot redskin warriors to victory. 'it was Hagan, it will be remembered. who, in the war of '78, led his band ol Bannocks to the hill north of Pendleton and scared some of its residents into hys terics, lnaeea, ne would have captured the town had it not been for the timely arrival of General Miles. I 'He was a powerful foe. and General Howard determined upon bis captuie. The story of his betrayal by Urn a pine to secure a reward of $500, is a familiar one. That Indian, representing himselt as a lriend and ally, threw the wily chieftain on bis guard, and delivered him to i a ten-e-ou-itz. Eagan made a break for liberty, but was caugtt, stabbed and killed by Ta ten-e-ou-itz, whose lodge pole is now adorned with JSdgan's rcalp. The pipe, another trophy of victory. descended is some manner, to Paul Sbow-e way, by whom it was presented tome. It was a war pipe ol the Bannock chiefs, and was gravely smoked in coun cil when a raid upon their pale-face foe was being discussed." the bowl ot the pipe is composed of tnat reddish-colored clay which is seen in many articles of Indian manufacture. It is neatly inlaid with silver, evidencing mucu care and nicety iu construction. as a souvenir aud as a p'pe, also, it is highly yalued by Mr. Moorhouse. The Mule Boy Was JXevenKed.

And yet what changes have been made iu tho political aud domestic economy of the United State?. But what are to be the lessons and results of the next fifty years? The population of the United States will then be at least 150,000,000. Where are they to live and what are they to eat? At prcserit it takes about six bushels of wheat per capita to feed the inhabitants, requiring now about 300,000,000 bushels. Fitty years hence, with a population of 150.000,000, at the same rate, it will take 900,000,000-busheU. Where is it to come from and where is it to be raised? Wheat is a desolator, and leaves barrenness in its track. While the wheat area is being pushed northwest and into the valleys of the mountains the area behind it is being closed up. The Genesee country, tho western reserve, the Wabash valley and the grand prairies of Illinois, so celebra ted in their several periods as prolific of wheat have long since been abandoned as feasible fields for wheat raising. Illi nois, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin are now following suit. Then where are the 900,000,000 bush els to come from annually to feed 150, 000,000 inhabitants? There are no new worlds to discover. The entire face of the world is known. But the United States has nothing to dread. It is the great corn field of the world, which pro -duces the most nutritious human food. Its roots do not desolate the soil. By proper care and wise farming equal crops can be raised for 1000 years in succes sion, and the human race may never leel a lack ot food. The population of the world may be three times larger than at present, and the corn area ot the United States can produce enough of thii rich and nutri tious cereal to teed the world. BSOC6HT HIM I.

The following queer story or a transac tion between a farmer and a butcher in one ot the counties near San Francisco is told by the Butdiers and Live Stock Oa ells: Mr. Jones sold a bullock to Mr. Lazarus for $10, to be taken and paid for when fat. When Mr. Lazarus came for the animal, Jones said he would like to have a fore-quartar for bis own nse. Mr. Lazarus willingly accepted the order, and after the bullock was slaughtered, deliv ered the meat. A few days later Jones went to town, called on Lazaru9, and as a prelimiminary to a settlement, asked tor his bill. "Dot's all right, Mr. Jones; I hai the bill already made out." Mr. Jones read.

"Ah, Mr. Jones, that beef waa cheap at lUc a pound." "But, Lazarus, yon only gave me $16 for the whole bullock." "Ah, but Jones, dot's piznesp, pizness, do you seer "Well, Lizarus, next time I have a fat bullock I'll kill it myself, use one-quarter and throw away the rest, and then 1 will save $3 00. xon seer' "Ah I ah I but dot's not pizness: farmers should not be butchers dot's bad." The London correspondent of the New York Times writes: "Sir Charles Dilke has returned from a visit to Bismarck at Friedricbsruhe convinced that there is no present prospect of war. He says Russia is the only power which could begin fighting, and Russia knows perfectly well that she is not ready for war. In bis view, which is by all odds the truest and best informed opinion not muzzled by an official place to be had in Europe, matters I . - - . will drift along much as they have for the past few years until Russia has got her railwavs, troops, fleet, and armament I in a condition which will seem to war rant aggression. Until that time be thinks there will be no treaty of alhajce with France, simply because Russia would enter into no compact which would put it in somebody else's power to force ner nana." The Fit sr.

The Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga,: During the spring of 1871, while working In the field at my home in Morgan county, Ga I pulled off my shoes to give my feet a rest. Unfortunately, I walked into a clump of poison oak, and in a few days my feet were in a terrible condition, and I could not put oa a shoe because of the soreness and swelling. I was treated as poison oak cases usually are, and everything was healed up. About the same time the following spring, 1872, my feet became sore again, as at first, and every succeeding spring for five years brought back the same condition of the dis ease, only each time it became more dis tressing, because I began to think it was a lifetime trouble. Finally, I was induced to try Swift's Specific. I took six bottles, and to-day am entirely well. My improvement was gradual from the first, and no evidence of the disease remains. I shall take pleas ure in testifying as to its curative proper ties. It is the greatest blood purifier in ex istence. Yours truly, J. L. Morgan. The foregoing certificate is taken at random from thousands of letters in posses sion of the Swift Specific Co., and presented simply as a sample.
