Ball, the tlelogate l'rom Alaska is meeting with consider able trouble in obtaining recogni tion by Congress; Inasmuch as Congress has authorised no elec tion, and the territory that Mr. Ball seeks to represent is unorgan ized, the probability is that he will not be recognized; and the 577,390 square miles of ice and timber, and unexplored empire that lies to the north must still go unrepresented. It seems hard that so much coun try can get no legislation; the magnificent opportunity for special work is so unlimited and the re sources so diversified that it looks like positive neglect on the part of the enterprising politicians of the day. Alaska's sun has not yet risen: "they also serve who only stand and wait." Sometime when Senator Miller's monopoly has ceased to exist, and several hun dred white men have perished in an attempt to immortalize them selves as pioneers, it may be that Alaska will obtain territorial juris diction and congressional recogni tion; and in the fullness of time may disrupt our national politics by a demand for admission as two or more sovereign states with a congressional delegation whose mixed blood and peculiar "bring ing up" will seriously affect their politics. Though not in the advice business to any alarming extent, we would suggest that Mr. Ball do as old Tom Baxter in Iowa in 1836, when he came down to the territorial capital from away to the northwest boundary of the territory and demanded a seat as representative. "Who elected you; what are your credentials; what do you represent?" Tom straightenvd up and thus did truthfully make reply. "I elected myself; my credentials are that I am the only white man in an area of 2500 square miles, and I repre sent just that much of the finest land that God's sun ever shone upon." Such a claim in those days could not be ignored. Tom Bax- .- .ter got a seat in the "Iowa Parlia ment" on general principles. Increase of Signal Service. At a recent meeting1 of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce to take action to further tho in crease of signal stations on this coast, says the Alta, tho Metero--logical committee presented their report, calling the attention of tho Chamber to the necessity for the extension of the Unitefi Statea Signal Service on this coast. The only maritime stations at present established are at Portland, San Francisco and San Diego, which are too limited in number and too far distant from each other to ad mit of observations, which, to a great extent, derive their value from simultaneous comparison at different points, and owing to this fact the commerce and ajrrieuituro of the Pacific coast have received ,abut?little benefit of this branch of our government service. The connection between these are made 1-vt Mvno iiircl- aoct rC tlin PVoef I n , " xl ' . Kaii";e, and couseouontlv, such 'stations as are established on these inland lines can only note local effect, assisting very littlo in the elucidation of such meteorological phenomena as can benefit maritime commerce. Although the seasons on the coast of California are uni form in character, tins does uot apply with the same accuracy to the coast of Oregon and "Washing- ,uton territory. The signal service can be of great service to our nhipping interests during the rainy 'seasons along the entire Pacific coast, in which violent attnospher icychanges and heavy galen are by uo means an unusual and un- i ifreque'nl occurrence. Wo need the establishment of coast sigoal stations at the following important points, as Cape Flattery, Cape Mendocino, Pornt Conception and Tillamook Hpad, which will great ly develop, the advantages of this service. The committee recom mended, that the Chamber call the attention of our Senators and Representatives to the necessity for tho establishment of these stations, that they may urge the passage of tho necessary appro priations to insure connections being made at an early date. If funds are furnished by Congress, it is the express desire ofthe Sig nal Service bureau to do the com merce of this coast this service. The committee had no reason to doubt that when the proper repre sentations were made, our reason able request will be granted. On motion the report was order ed to be sent to Senator Miller and the .other representatives in "Washington with a resolution urging them to carry out the de sire of the Chamber. Concerted action on the part of the tTelve congressmen for this coast ought to make the matter an assured success. The same day on which the San Francisco Cham ber of Commerce held their meet ing the Board of Trade of that city also met and passed resolu tions urging the passage of the appropriation of $15,000 for a telegraph line from Astoria via Fort Adams to Seaside house, and thence by cable to Tillamook, and also 25,000 for a line from Poi t Townsend to Cape Flattery, and on last Thursday the S. F. Pro duce Exchange resolved to peti tion Congress to establish signal stations the whole length of I.'. S. territory on this coast. Ix referring to Senator Miller's Nicaragua bill, a Washington dis patch of the loth says that he be lieves that the Nicaragua route can be opened for the transit of the largest vessels at half the cost and less than half the time that would be required to construct the Panama canal, and is satisfied that its revenue would from the very first, be much more than sufficient to free the government from any liability under the proposed guar antee of 3 per cenr. He urges, however, that even if the net earn ings should not at first amount to 3 per cent of the capital slock, the extraordinary advantages granted our government, namely, trans portation, the right to assume ex clusive control, and the power to regulate all tolls, would unmeasur- j ably outweigh anv possible deficit j which it might be called upon to make good. The climax of the Guiteau fnreo is nearly reached. Scoyille, hs counsel, lectured on the Guitpau case last "Wednesdar night to an applauding- audience in "Washing ton; at the close of the lecture resolutions of "sympath" with the family of the prisoner were passed. Think of it! It will bo three months next Monday since President Garfield breathed his great soul away. His murderer is posturing in a court room to the delight, of thes asembled crowd, and that murderer's brother-in-luw while defending the wretch, lec tures on the case. But one ihinjr more is needed that Guiteau, Cox and Scoville give a variety show, with Cox as middle man; Guiteau with the bones and Scoville with the tambourine. It is disru.stinr. A Moxtkkal dispatcn alleges i that certain Canadian papers ha vo j , . .. , , .. ', . , been bribed by railroad officials to advocate certain measures. This certainly must be a base fabrica tion. It cannot be possible that a man could be found in Canada or anywhere else who could propose to a newspaper man that he, for coin, should favor any schemo; and it is outside the wildest flights of supposition to ever imagine, for a moment that any editor, or any one else connected with a news paper, could be found who would listen to such wicked propositions. The Montreal dispatch is but as the baseless fabric of a vision. The San Francisco Bulletin very appropriately suggests that the merchants of the metropolis drop steamer day," au institution that that pity has outgrown. Tuk California University is go ing to the bow-wows fast, by rea-1 son of mismanagement. The in-; ' cvitable lring" got control of it some time ago, and instead of be- ing a place where youth can JJjJ a higher education, the uniwrssily has degenerated into a convenient : means of controlling petty jMlili-! ciaus. The nrusent Boaid of Ke-J gents a're trying to run tho ius.tit.ii-1 tion in the interests of the Rejmb-i lican partv, and . while injuring! the party they ar- ruining wh.vt- ever prospects of usrluhiCat th educational institution poises?'.'"!, i The Seattle Post Intelligencer has a sensible article on the "Sun day Law" recently passed by the Territorial Legislature. After! pointing out .-ome of the incon sistencies, incongruities ami ab surdities of that bill it say:?: "Pro tect the religious community in the full enjoyment of all their rights and von have don'! all llmt can be done. Prohibit, all secu lar enjoyment when it interfero with the rights of others or with thq day as a day of rest, lidy on reason and moral suaion for the rest and all that ought, lo be grant ed will be secured." Titi: supporters of the scheme for dividing Texas into four dis tiuct states do not find much hear tiness on the part of the Texans themselves. One paper, the Gainesville Register, says: "The people of Texas are loyal to the Democratic party, but they will not carry their devotion to the ex tent of dividing their state for the purpose of giving the paity con trol of the Senate. We er.n man age, our own affairs without haing control of the (jeueral (jo, em inent." XE V TO-DAY. ForYaquina Bay, Tillamook and Cray's Harbor. Direct. The new Coaiim;; strainer YAQUINA, JAMES E.
