VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1879. Boshop Foley, a noted Catholic prelate, died in Chicago on the 19th. His funeral obsequies in that city were attended by an immense con course of people. An old lady by the name of II aga r, living near Oregon City, was brutally murdered on Friday last, during the absence of the other members of the family. The object was robbery. So far one arrest has been made, and the community is laboring under great excitement. A threshing machine engine, fur nishing power for a pump, at Stock ton California, exploded with terrific force last Saturday. It was sur rounded by a big crowd of persons, and the havoc was terrible. Sixteen persons were killed outright, and twenty-six wounded, some of whom will die. A bill recently introduced into con gress, primarily for the benefit of California gold-note banks, will prove equally effectual throughout the Union, our own territory not excepted. This bill provies that gold-note banks may become curren...

Enterprise. Under this caption the Seattle Intel ligencer says of Portland: "There is no town upon the Pacific Coast, if any where, which has exhibited such a wonderful growth and material pros perity during the last decade as has Portland. There are many places pos sessing much greater natural commer cial advantages, but none which has so well improved what it hail. The pros perity of Portland is due to a combina tion of personal thrift with public spirit. Never losing sight of the main chance, its business men have given a liberal support to every public enter prise and every common improvement calculated to attract capital and encour age industry, and have reaped ample rewards in the enhancement of the common wealth and the consequent personal aggrandisement derived there from. The most powerful transporta tion monopoly on this upper coast has grown up at Portland, under the man agement of men who were the sole architects of their own fortunes — achieved all they possess by their...

Y AMOi V ill? IN S)EPENDENT. THURSDAY, MARCH l! . 1879. President I [ayes has vetoed the restricting Chinese emigration, Under the excuse that Congress has no right to meddle with treaties. Am erica will therefore continue to be "the land of the free ami the home of home of the brave." the Chinamen who is free to leave all his virtues at home practicing nothing but his vices here, and brave only while corrupting American boys with opium or slave prostitutes, or engaged in robbing hen roosts. The President sides with the Eastern theorists, who viewed the Chinese question the same as they do the Indian question, through scientific and theoretic eyes, but never condescend to look at the practical working of their beautiful theories. The result is great injustice to the interests of the people of this coast, and unless President Hayes' action on this law is repudiated by the re publican party in the East they must expect to lose the Pacific States.
