ASTORIA, OREGON: WEDNESDAY XOVEMBEK 14, 1S33 AS IT IS. The eastern Oregon dweller, says the "Wasco Sun, can dig and plow and harvest, but when he comes to dispose o his harvest, he is snubbed by a power which declares, ?'we own the only way to market The passes on each side of the Cascades we own. "We will not allow a boat on the river to carry passengers or freight tins magnificent river is virtually ours; we have by the power of our capital by carrying passengers at 25 cents each driven off the people's line which carried them for $2.50 and we now rejoice in charging &LS0. "We have control of everything con nected with the marketing of the products of labor transportation, telegraphing, expressing; we virtu ally fix the price of wheat and all products, for are not the Improve ment companies and the Transpor tation companies ours? Coal and wood are ours; and no man can operate in lumber unless he bows to our charge. The public need not think they nre a power. Can't we forco them to go to Portland, 25 miles out of their way, and pay for handling all their products there? For we are prepared to do it; we get the profit "Won't we charge what we please, for no competition can ap proach us? "Wo need not build the road from Portland to Astoria or any lino under our legitimate charter, yet hold an empire of land in Oregon." Hon. Cassius M. Clay has written a letter in which ho says: "Ex-President Samuel J. Tilden having de clined the nomination for the nresi- dency in 18S1, Governor-elect Hoadley of Ohio, is the man. With genius, common sense, and great experience iu affairs, bold, individual, and mag netic, altogether of such stuff as heroes are made of, let Hoadley be our nominee for president in 1881, and the Republicans will go." Fouit years ago the question that agitated the minds of western "Wash ingtonians was "who is Hall?" Hall was ostensibly a land agent at Olym pia, but a mjstery to everyone. He finally disappeared. It now trans pires that his name was T. C. Calvert, of Bowling Green, Ivy., whose ideas on the acquisition of property were so indistinct as to occasion his hur ried departure from the blue grass region. The Prince of "Wales, in closinc the International Fisheries Exhibition at London, announced that the substan tial surplus would bo devoted to im proving the condition of the fisher men. Ho expressed the hope that hygienic and inventors' expositions would be held soon, and said he pro posed to have a colonial exhibition in 183G. C After is in his grave, a group of informers are drifting about on a British vessel, afraid to land in any part of the world, a detective in the Phoenix Park murder case has just been driven by the persecutions of the Fenians to attempt his own life. and McDermott is afraid to leave his English prison Tor fear of sgsassina tion. xi "Tnn Republican party of the na tion," Senator Frye of Maine says, "is in n much better condition to-day than it was nine months before Gar field's election. The trouble is, peo ple forget. The Republican party will win ui 18SL" Mb. YiLiiAnD has stabled Old Nig, the horse which drew the first and last loads of rails for the Northern Pacific roadjComfortably in New York, there to p:iss the remainder of his days in peaceful enjoyment of all the oats he can eat It is somewhat noteworthy that, while the aggregate vote for govern or iu Ohio was 718,1GG, there were, as the official count shows, only 11 scat tering votes, all the rest being given to the four regularly nominated candidates. Tnn Chicago Times has been sued by the People's Railway Company of America, for $500,000 for saying that the company "is as villainous schtmie as was ever concocted to rob poor simple people of their money. It is estimated that over L000 hunt ers are engaged in slaughtering deer and buffalo along the line of the Northern Pacific, between Mandan and Livingston, Montana, and the game is fast disappearing. A fierce tornado swept over the Northern and New England states last Monday, causing widespread dis aster to shipping, resulting in great loss of life on the lakes and Atlantic coast There are Democratic Governors twenty-Bix of the thirty-eiffht States. including New York, Pennsj'lvania and Ohio, and yet the presidential year abounds with uncertainties. Among the 50,000 postmasters in the United States, S8,000 a year is the highest salary, and five cents is the lowest. There are forty-seven who recefte one dollar a year salary. San Fbajjcisco freights are so low that ships are going elsewhere in search, of cargo. EXECUTIVE STYLE. Coxtbaby to the usual custom President. Arthur is scrupulously careful concerning the letting out of a single word of his annual message until congress lias first read it He will probably write his message, as he did last year, at high pressure. The sheets will bo written in the presi dent's little private room, and the first light of dawn will tinge some of them, for the president thinks he does his best work after midnight The chief magistrate, as he writes his message, has no companions but some choico cigars, and his desk is heaped with reports, documents and .manuscript Last year President Arthur was very nervous lest his message Bhould get to the press before it reached con gress. Ho sent for the public printer and said: "Mr. Bounds, can I depend upon you to put my message into type and keep it away from the news papers?" "You can, sir," said Bounds. "Very well; Pll try you, and shall hold you personally responsible for its safety." The public printer took tho manu script, rushed back to tho govern ment's great workshop, cut the man uscript into very small takes, took off his coat, put on his apron, and with his chief clerk, set the typo for the most important parts. The presi dent sat up all night reading the proofs as they were sent up, galley by galley, from the printing office. The public printer watched eaoh proof as closely as though it had been a government bond. At six o'clock the message was in type, re vised, and the president went to bed. At noon it went to congress. From beginning to end it will be seen that it is no child's play to write and send to congress a message of this sort. The debt of the United States gov ernment was diminished by $10,301, 793 during tho month of October. The present interest bearing debt of this country is $L312,41C,050. The Prussian Government has made offers for the purchase of six railway lines, which, if accepted, will put the entire Prussian system in the hands of the state.

"No. my dear," said tho venerable keeper of a country store to a timid little girl whoso head acarcoly came up to tho level of tho counter. "No, my dear, rro haven't any rod flannel, but we have some first rate New Or leans molasses." Softly hinting that she didn't think that would answer tho purposo quite aa well, the child went her way in search of the article ehe wanted. "Have you BENSON'S CAPCINE PL AS TERS?" asked a gentleman of a certain drug gist whoso name could be Riven were it de sired. 'I am troubled just now with a touch of my old friend, the lumbago, and the Ben son's Plaster seems to go to the spot almost as soon as it touches the skin." "Not at present." replied the druggist, gen ially " but. wo havo lots of plasters just as good. There is Allcoek's, the Capricorn and others won't ono of them do as well?" "My dear sir," retorted the gentleman. with a slight show of temper, "I say nothing against thoso articles, but I am a business man, and always ask for precisely what want, and for nothing else. I may enlighten you, however, when I say that sometiino ago, for another disease, of which the Ca peine has since cured me, I tried all those you mention. with no appreciable benefit. They aro ineffi cient, every one of them, tho meanest act of the proprietors of somo of them being this that they mako plasters with similar sound ing names to dectivo tho unwary into bcliov- ms tney aro tne same thing.
