- SATUEDAY...... FEBRUARY 22. 1890 PORTLAND AND AN OPEN RIVER. The Oregonian, following lex tal . ionis, never forgets or forgives an antagonist. In yesterday's issue it pabliahea the following: Says The Dalles Times-Mountaineer; . "For the past decade our , people have . hoped that an - outlet would be furnibhed .theru by au open river to sealjoard, but have nearly lost : all expectation of relief from that direction.." ' Years ago when the Ore . yonian foretold this situation, which . to it was just as clear then as now, the Tikes Mountaineer was extreme ly unkind in its criticisms. We all want the river opened, but there is small probability that any of us now anxious will live to see it The gov- ernment will do the work, in time; but e never can get much more than our - moiety -of the regular 'appropriation . made by the river and harbor bill; hence . we cannot see the work make . rapid progress, and the hope of seeing - . - it completed will have to be handed down to posterity....

SATURDAY. ....MARCH 8. 1890 NOT SCIENTIFIC. The practical demonstration of a theory is ajaya the best evidence of the adaptability of . a policy to a com munity or a nation. If free-trade has actually benefitted England there is no question that it is the economic policy to be followed; but if protection has been beneficial to America, Germany and France, there can be no reason for demanding a chancre. The basis of principles of political economy de pends npon careful end systematic management; but these cannot be re duced to that, degree. of certainty of ' which those that underlie the sciences . of astronomy or chemistry are suscepti ble. We cannot say to a nation like the tutor says to the student in math ematics: These principles are axioms and cannot be controverted. .

' Collapse Of A Ureat Canal. . United States Consul Virquair, station ed at Aspinwall, in his last official report to the State Department, gives a striking picture of the present condition of affairs along tho line ot the Panama Canal. The decadence of Colon (Aspinwall) and the almost entire prostration of all business at that place aiuce the. collapse of tec canal becomes more and more apparent." It very often happens t'la't not a solitary vessel ia to bfouod ia the harbor, a thiiiSt-thaTwas never known there, even orevious to 1880 and after 1800: and yet it is but abort wbi'e ago since vessels - were obliged to be anchored out for dayg "in waiiing for dock room at which to unload their respective cargoes.

..B SATURDAY .....MARCH 15. 1890 THE NEAGLE CASE ONCE MORE. Aa etho of the pistol shot wbicb pnt an end to the tumultuous life of ex-Judge lerry, of Uauforma, was heard in the supreme court at Wash ington Tuesday, says the Inter-Ocean of March 6th. The question of the release on habeas corpus of Deputy Marshal Neagle who fired that shot was the. point of contention. It was claimed in behalf of the state of Cali fornia that the United States goyero ment had no authority in the case, except as it might be specifically set forth by federal statute. Th'S posi tion was that as it was not asserted that Neagle acted upon the authority of any statutory law of the United States he was not acting nnder any valid authority. . There is no act of congress expressly extending to fed eral judges protection outside the pre' cincts of the court building, it was argued, and therefore the deputy marshal ought to be remanded to the custody of the state of California. This is the old Calhoun doctrine of...

SATURDAY MARCH 22. U90 THE DALLES TO TIDEWATER. The importance of an open river is apparent to any one. when the vast amount of produce shipped to and from this city every year is taken into consideration. The bare figures may be bewildering, and an illustration, the facts of which are well known, may serve our purpose better. For in stance, we were talking with a farmer to-day, who has been raising grain for . the past seventeen years. He Bays his land has yielded from 20 to 40 bushels of wheat to the acre, and he has 100 acres under cultivation. The freight charged him has . been 12 cents a bushel for transportation of his grain from The Dalles to Portland, or he has paid to the O. R. fc N. Co. at the lowest estimate $2.40 per acre annu ally on evpry acre of land he has sown in wheat 240 on his 100 acres, and for the 17 years $4,080.
