ASTORIA, OREGON: TUESDAY DECEMBER 11. 1SS A FREE MYEIt Oil A THEE FIGHT." The "Wasco Sun and other jour nals cast of the Cascades arc making a Tree fight for the completion o the locks at the Cascades and the open ing up ot the Columbia river to free and unrestricted commerce. This, says the Albany Herald, is a move in the riglii clirectlon, and even' journal in the state, free from the inilnence of corporate power, will join cause with these journals and labor for the consummation of this great work. Water transportation is the only coin petition that can hold in check the greed of railroad power. The Colum bia river is the natural outlet for the commerce of a vast empire. Its navi gation is of prime commercial neces sity. The instinct of corporate power is in antagonism to the free use of natural commercial channels. A bond ed syndicate of corporate power in Oregon is opposed to the opening up of the Columbia river for comraer cial purposes. On one side are the leop!e and the development of a broad country, demanding free and unrestricted commercial privileges; on the other side a bonded syndicate of bloated capitalists, who, through the mal-adminislration of legislative measures, granting them subsidies and franchises, without proper legis lative restrictions, have opened up commercial channels, and when so completed at the expense of lhe pub lie lands that ot right belong to the people, usurp all commercial privi legos and use the power vested in them by the people to take away the people's rights, and to maintain the supremacy of opposition to further improvement for the benefit of commercial development. The direc tors of the Union Pacific railroad boasted after the completion of that road, that they had built it out of the government subsidy of lands and had a surplus of $30,000,000 in the treasury. The Northern Pacific, from its vast land grant, will realize hundreds of millions of dollars, and yet, when the people call for aid to clear the Columbia river of obstruc tions, making it available for com mercial purposes, this svndicaic of !owcr plants itseit saranrclv in the way and uses its vast patronage of power io defeat the will of the people, j The completion of the locks at the Cascades will be defeated if iossibic, by corporate capital, as in this free channel of commerce they see a dan gerous rival, whose use will restrict oppressive freight charges and dull the edge of profit. The people of Oregon, Idaho and Montana, iri-eiily alive to their interests, are determin ed that this great waterway to the sea shall be opened, and that the locks at the Cascades shall be finish ed and the river utilzied for commer cial purposes. The struggle is yet in its incipiency. The people yet hard ly realize the colossal power that stands in the way of the successful termination of this enterprise. The near future will unfold facts and fig ures bearing upon this important matter. The people to obtain a free river have got to wage a free fight, stern, relentless and aggressive. The resources of the enemy are vast and their courage undaunted. They will influence judges, control senators, and carry the battle through lhe portals of congressional doors and shake the forum of state. Only one thing can defeat them, a united, unanimous and determined eople. The people are sovereign and their power irresistible when they come together like the rivulets and rills after a cloud-burst on the mountain sides. Let the good peo ple of Oregon shout with one voice "The Columbia river shall be open ed,'' and the detonation of this echo will stun the cars of corporate power, and put them to flight and confusion. I-XEAKXED LAND GRANTS. A "Washington special of the 9th says: Among the roads affected by bills to be introduced by Judge Jay sou, to forfeit lapse land grants, are the Oregon Central, from Portland to Astoria, 1,130,000 acres; the Oregon and California and the California and Oregon, unpatented lands, 410,837 acres; and certain lands of the North ern Pacific, from "Wallula fo Port land, 5,501,000 acres. The indica tions are that to-morrow some thirty bills will be offered by democratic representatives, affecting railroad land grants. Hosecrans has prepar ed a comprehensive bill; so has Mr. noiman who has been giving the matter special attention. Holman's bill provides for forfeiture of nnearh ed land grants, including that of the Northern Pacific. By unearned grants Mr. Holman means all lands claimed by, certified to or patented to railroad corporations subsequent to expiration or tne conditional grant His bill provides for the forfeiture of all that part of the Northern Pacific grant through which no roads have been built prior to July 4, 1879, the amount being estimated at about 35, 000,000 acres. Mr. Holman said to day that he thought the amount covered by his bill which he hopes to reclaim from railroad companies, will Be from 90,000,000 to 110,000,000 Rcres, AiioNa other items of appropria tion for the Indian service for next year increases have been asked for and recommended as follows: Ari zona, S18.000; California, S1G,000; Dakota, S7,000; Idaho, $4,000; Mon tana, $1,000; Nevada, $6,000; Now Mexico, $10,000; Oregon, $0,000; Utah, $14,000; "Washington Territory, $0,000. An appropriation of $85,000 is recommended to carry out the agreement with Chief Moses. An in crease of S3G,000 is recommended for the support of Indian schools at For est Grove. A iiAUGE congressional delegation interviewed President Arthur last Saturday on behalf of O'Donnell, who is sentenced to hang next Mon day. What was asked was that the fact of O'Donnell's being an American citizen be taken into consideration, and the belief on the part ot many that the trial was not entirelv fair. ! The president promised that the ! American government, through its , English minister, would inquire into I the case, and lake whatever action j propriety dictated. It is thought that Gen. Hancock's ; present visit to this coast is in, con- j nection with probable presidential nominations. It surely can't be that the general wants to fight i8S0 over again ! .
