itjTu jgnihj stovtaj ASTORIA- OREGON: SATURDAY JULY . C. IKELAM) .Editor. Tlie Oregon Monopoly. Discussing the scheme set forth by Mr. Villard in his remarks at a meeting of representative men at St. Paul a few (las ago, which is much the largest in its scope of any yet attempted in the history of railroad undertakings, embracing, as it does, a through line from the great lakes to the Pacific ocean, supported by an extra system of branches throughout Oregon,"Wash ington, Idaho, Montana, Dakota and Minnesota, and extending northward into the British terri tory, taking in the entire North ern Pacific scheme; and proposing to extend it till the main line and branches penetrate all parts of the vast country which can be devel oped by the system; embracing all that was originally mapped for the Oregon Railway and Navigation company, with the addition of lit eral lines and branches; and finally, including the Oregon and Califor nia company with its western Ore gon roads and their extension to proper connection with the rail way system of California, and the city of San Francisco, the Orego nian says: It is a vast and comprehensive plan, and appears to be backed by a force that rendets its success entirely certain. t will be seen at once that it is no visionary un dertaking, as capital enough is already known to be embarked in it to put it through. It is doubt ful whether any other part of the field covered by the plans em braced in this prodigious under taking will realize the changes and general consequences to follow it in an equal degree with Oregon and Washington. No other part of the field needs this development so much, has waited so long for it or is so entnely dependent upon it. Alone of ail the states and territories Oregon and Washington are still without railway communi cation with other parts of the country. We are the last to be brought into connection with the general railway system of the whole United States. But in some quarters objection begins now to'be made that we are to be at the mere' of a monopoly. What have we expected? A great corpora tion is now at work in our midst. For twenty-live years we have waited, striven and hoped for the very work this corporation is now doing. It is a big corporation, of course. It commands enormous capital. But no small corporation could accomplish what it has un dertaken. No small aggregation of capital would suffice. In the nature of things it is a monopoly too. Occupying the place it does, and carrying on operations on so vast a scale, it could not be any thing else. t is a monopoly be cause nqbody else is likely to raise or combine one hundred millions of money for competition with it; and if such a thing could be done, then neither undertaking could be made to pay any return on invest ment so great. But people who consider the whole situation are not going to permit themselves to be worried by this bugbear of mo nopoly. It may be supposed that they foresaw the whole situation when they were so anxious to have the great undertakings which this corporation now has in hand be gun and pushed through. If there be any who did not foresee it, they were singularly blind to most ob vious consequences. There would seem to be little propriety in hav ing waited and labored so long for this very work, to turn about now and begin to distress ourselves with anticipations of-dire conse quences from it. The Kansas colony have located near Whatcom, Pusret-sound. A private dispatch from H. V. Boyntou, Washington, asserts em phatically that the President is all right- Seattle has had thirteen cases of small pox landed there in two years and still no epidemic. Good treat ment. The infernal machines were con signed to one Joseph Evans., Liv erpool, by one Charles Mills, Bos ton. Neither have been appre bended. , Hon. Elisha Allen, the Hawaiian minister at Washington, asserts that King Kalakua does not wish to sell his birth-right for a mess of potash, nis tour is from liberal curiosity, and for enlightened pur- poses. Mr. Stedmans Grst essay on Poe try in America, a subject too little treated by American critics; will ap pear in" the August 'Scribner. It is part of the new work "projected by Mr. Stednrm on the poets and poetry of t, and treats of the relations of iof versification to American story. r l I I It Pays to Advertise, he following notice of a live sin ess man, who owes much of is success to the fact that he was liberal and judicious advertiser, is from the Portland Mercury: "Mr Martin Hecht, formerly of the wholesale house of Hecht, Aiken & Co., started for his old home in Boston, Massachusetts, in which city his father is a leading banker. Martin came to Portland seven years ago and commenced busi ness on 30,000, given him by his paternal relative. He refused to accept this money as a gift but kept it as a loan and paid it back with interest at six per cent per an num. Besides leaving the state without owing a dollar Mr. Hecht carried with him 75,000, profits on his business since his arrival in Portland in 1874. He was a gen erous young man, not 3et aged twenty-eight years, and gained the respect and confidence of all with whom he had either social or business relations." NEW TO-DAY.
