FRIDAY AUGUST 10, 9 A California Opinion. Oui: neighbors of the eroldtm state are discussing- tlie proba ble effect upon them of the com pletion of the Northern Pacific ltailroad. The JJulJltu snys: The effect which the completion of the Northern Pacific is going- to have on the future of this city, is one of the problems of the hour. San Francisco has, in a large sense, been the port oi Oregon, j To this city were conveyed the' goods from New York ami Europe j which our sister state needed. Uerj export trade, mostly consisting of j cereals, follows a different route j that is to say, around ('ape Horn to Europe. The trade likely to be affected may be defined as a species of brolcerae. The com modities destined for Oregon "were deposited here on the way, and we took such toll out of litem as the business would stand. But this is a sort of commerce which must attain to enormous volume to be a factor in maintaining a large city. We have all the China trade there is, coming this way. Hut no very large commercial benefits are de rived from it. The tea and silk are transferred from the ship to the car, and leave nothing behind but the 1 rilling expense of hand- The invention of the sealed or bonded car lias operated not only against .San Francisco, but all sea board cities. Before the era of that custom house on wheels, all foreign goods had to go into store at the point of imjortation. The new regulation became the law before any of the seaboard cities had waked up to its importance, if, indeed, they considered it at all. It was brought about by tlie. quiet exertions of the enlerprisiug inte rior cities. Though it has in a small way affected the interests of individuals in seaports for under it every interior city can be a sea port, so to speak, to itself we do not; know that any strong objec tion can be urged against it. Jt is certainly a rule in the interest of the cheaper handling of goods. But no trade of that character can keep a town up unless it assumes colossal proportions. Liverpool may be cited as a ease in point. That city is the place of the im port and export of great empires, in soma respects it is unique. There is no other city that is ex. actly a parallel. It handles most of the articles imported into Eng land from or exported to the United States. In that way, it may be said to be the place where the products of eighty it ninety millions of people are exchanged. t is also the entreport for most of the trade of Australia, India, Af rica and the Mediterranean. But with all of that Liverpool has only grown to have a little more than half a million of people. If it had nothing else but this trade, colos sal as it is, to depend on, it would not be near so populous. There are no facts accessible to show how much of its development is due to actual manufactures and how much to commerce. But it may be assumed with safety that Liverpool would be a small city to-da if it did not have sugar re fineries, iron and brass foundries, iron and steel forges, works for making steiun engines, ma chinery, chains, cables, anch ors, rope, sails, soap, ship build ing on an extensive scale, and watch and jewelry ma ttu factories. New York does not occupy a position corresponding to that of Liverpool. It is not the sole ex change place between America and England. It has four or five rivals in the business, which at the latest computation accessible had got away with -14 per cent of its com merce; but New York for all that has more than double the popula tion of the city named. There is enough here to show that it is not commerce exclusively that builds up cities. Commerce indicates the point where they must in the first instance be located, and helps, but is not the prime factor. It is only where associated with raanu lactures that a great city is possi ble. All that we have a prospect of losing is the brokerage on a portion of the trade of a growing state north of us; but as it will presently appear, only in a very restricted sense. The trade of Eastern Oregon, never very great, has long since been largely diverted from this city. That section has been ob taining much of the supplies it needs directly from the Union Pa cific and its branches in the east. The goods which now come across the Central and Southern Pacific to this city and are shipped hence to Portland, will hereafter be trans ported mostly by the Northern Pacific. But the houses which now control that business in this city will not let it go. Thev will naturally establish branch houses in Oregon and import by the new line of the Northern Pacific. But no diminution in the articles which we produce, and which Oregon neods, will take place. Oregon will not import California goods by way of the Horn and the Northern Pacific. It is not possible at the moment to separate our actual trade with Orogon from that in which we occupy the position of intermediaries. Bt the former is no doubt large and is bound to grow. Oregon will not import any thing front New York or the oast wltMili she can find better and cheaper in San Francisco, North ern Pacific or no Northern Pacific. To retain all the commerce of Oregon we have to compete suc cessfully with the more difataut cities of the ctut, which docs not appear to be difficult or impossi ble. The corresjKHtdi ng advan tages are a branch of the subject, however, which has not been much considered. The new rail roads the Northern Pacific and the Canadian Pacific are going to build tip large and prosperous communities in the north. Many of these communities will draw from us a large part of their sup plies. For generations they vril! have to devote themselves exclu sively to agriculture and cattle raising. They will have to send here for wines, brandies, nf.r. vroolens, cottons when we get starte d agricul I u ral i in pi e me u is, pottery, glass, paint, oil, wgm;.-. harness, nails, and hur lrcd t.: other articles. The cot:.imu:ilie. j more to the east will draw fiom Canada and the United Stales. But even they will have to import from us, even if the goods have to go around the Horn, for some California products are numbered among the necessities of life. Instead of taking a nurrow view of the subject, we are disposed to believe that when the railroad to Oregon is completed, San Francis co will become, in a larger sense, the port for the whole northwest. There are good seaports, it is tr.te, in Oregon and "Washington, but they are not in positions to be large distributers of merchandise. Belying on the Southern route, San Francisco does not occupy, in the matter of foreign goods, a position, with reference to the vast region under consideration, much inferior to that of New York, or any of the .Atlantic cities. We suspect, also, that i-ailroads bear a much more subordinate relation toward large cities than is gener ally supposed. Since the first mil was laid no railroad lias injured any large city previously estab lished. On the contrary railroads have contributed amazingly to their growth. Tin: presidential party has about arrived at the Yellowstone. A number of special newspaper men followed in their wake (ill near Fort Washxeka, but their further j progress lias evidently been barred, as they cannot enter upon the Slioshotte reservation without special permit. One cor respondent telegraphs that prior to the arrival of the presidential party all civilians were ordered off the reservation, All stage coaches were slopped at the line, eight miles distant, traders put off,' and only United Stales mails permit led to enter. Drivers of staires are under constant surveillance. The line of Indian scouts has been doubled around lorl Comas and otttoslf!, with orders to arrest all parties without a pass from Gen. Sheridan, and put them off the reservation. In case of a sec ond offense civilians will le jailed. The government depot is ordered to sell no food lo parties without passes. The hotel is ordered closed, and Western Union oper ators are put under constant watch, AH dispatches are or dered inspocted by government officials. There is great secrecy, the ultimate motive of which is not yet developed. Tin: irregularities into which lynch law leads men is strikingly examplified in two cases. In Miles City, a saloon keeper was recently hanged because he bore tlie name of being "a hard citizen," and in Tombstone, Arizona, a lawyer was tarred and feathered for alleged "irregularity m regard to town sites." Aaioxrt mauy silly suggestions of the hour, none are sillier titan that which calls upon the govern ment to lake charge of the tele graph service. This paternal style of doing business is inimical to a republican form of govern ment and diametrically opposed to the fundamental principles of popular sovereignty. NEW TO-DAY.
