thought good and sufficient reasons
for its seeming tardiness in publishing
Judge Blask's scorching and convinc

So much of the valuable spice of TBX

THE stategrango of Ohio has adopted
a resolution that hereafter all candl-
cLute * for puUo office , maVing IHo sup
port of grangers , shall be requested to
publicly express their sentiments up
on railway corporations and their ro
latlon to the people. This coarse
must , sooner or latar , be taken by al
the farmers of the west. They have
been humbugged too long by office
seeking renegades like Church How *
and A. H. Church. For their own
protection they must combine agains
the baneful consolidation of railro&c
corporations , made against the inter
octs of the producing classes. The
independent press of the country
journals like the New York Times mm
Chicago Tribune are rallying'.to the relief
liof of the people. Public sentiment is
becoming aroused to the Impend
ing peril of railroad domination

legislation. Tno highest judlcia
Authorities in the country have de
olarei that railroad corporations are
amendable , to the statute laws of th
Various states and the general con
gross. The right of legislatures to
pass laws regulating freight and pas
senger tariffs and prohibiting nnder
heavy penalties extortion and dis
crimination is unchallenged , oxcep
by the paid attorneys of the grei
monopolies. The remedy now lies
in the hands of the people. On
thorn devolves the responsibility o
the continBinoo or removal of the
railroad despotism. It Is their vote
which select men to represent the
itato in congress and in
the legislature. They wll
follow the worthy example
of the Ohio farmers and pledge their
honor to support no man for any pub
lie position who does not plant him
self squarely and firmly on an antimonopoly -
monopoly basis ? Or , will they shut
their eyes to the past and continue to
play into the hands of the railroad
kings by electing candidates whose
past records and present associations
are linked with the robbers of the
producers of the west ]
One thing more. The legislature Is
soon to moot In Lincoln. A majority
of its memberi have been elected by
farmer constituencies whose every in
terest demands that the mandate ol
the constitution ba curled Into effect.
The constitution distinctly provides
that the legislature * &oll pus pass laws
regulating the railroads in the state.
The passage of inch laws is not left
optional witn the members of the leg

National Railway Legislation.
Chicago Tribune , December IS.
Mr. Reagan , the chairman of the
commerce committee , is very confident
that he will be able to secure serious
consideration for bis inter-state rail
way bill immediately after the holiday
recess , or within a few days if no re
cess be taken. Yesterday , as usual ,
th private bills swept every thing from
the board in the house of representa
tives. The programme for to-day is
to take up the military academy bill ,
which will , without doubt , be dis
posed of. Then it is understood that
the way shall bo cleared for the re
funding bill , and it Is believed to be
possible to reach an agreement and
pass that measure in the house by
Wednesday. If all this shall be done
though any task is incident to con
stant impedimenta and great uncer
tainty in congress Mr. Reagan has
reason to believe that the appropri
ation committee will give him a fair
field for urging the consideration of
national legislation for the regulation
of inter-state railroads , and he also
thinks that the house , aa a whole , is
much more impressed with the im
portance of this subject than it was at
the last session.
In spite of the rather cheering view
of the matter taken by Mr. Reagan ,
it does not now look as though any
legislation upon railway regulation
may be matured by the present con
gress. In the first plxce , other
measures such as the apportionment
bill will contest for the attention of
the house outside of the necessary ap
propriation bills. The interior de
partment , with which the railroad
affairs of tne nation have been iden
tified , has other measures to urge in
which it takes a deeper interest , such
as the bill eranting ; severally in titles
ip Indians , the bill for the preserva
tion of American timber , uid some
neasnre for the correction of defects
n the pension laws. Moreover , the
project for a national rail way law has
never received the active support of
he administration. The president
ilmself is possessed with the de-
ualon that it is too early for this
orernment to agree upon any
ystem for the regulation of railroads ,
nd that the pawage of any law now
would retard the new growth of rail
roads that has set in since the renew
al of prosperity. Though the present
congress is democratic in both houses ,
the influence of the administration in
shaping or retarding legislation is Im
portant. It extends to the departments - j
ments , and the departments have a
large share in the preparation of the
laws. The indifference of the
head of the government in this
matter Is reflected In the interior de
partment Mr. French , who is audi
tor of railroad accounts , has presumed
upon his rather nondescript position
to recommend the passage of a law
prohibiting , in general terms ,
all discrimination In "like possible
service" from the same point , for the
same distance , and on the same day ,
and there let the natter rest. If the
railroad corporations could have the
privilege of dictating the terms of a
law , they could not hit upon any ex
pression that would better suit their
purpose. The veteran railroad man
ager must have laughed at this sug
gestion when ho road It , as designed
to exercise any control over unreason
able charges or unfair discrimination
If Mr. French were a hired attorney
of the railroads , instead of a paid em
ploye of the government , he Could
scarcely make a proposition that
would be more subservient to the
railroad purpose of avoiding respon
sibility to the public under the law.
This single instance shows how little
aid or encouragement the project of
national legislation on railway affairs
has received from the administration.
If the railway subject shall oomo up
for serious consideration in the house ,
it will rest mainly upon the bill re-
reported by the commitcee , which is
known aa the Henderson bill , and
upon the substitute known as the
Reagan bill. The Henderson bill
provides for a National Railway Com
mission , but seems aimed rather at in
vestigations , reports , and future pro
jects of Ivwthan actual remedial legis
lation. Its chief defects are tbat it
fails to provide the commission which
it proposes to create with the proper
authority for the summary process
that is conceded to bo necessary to
any relief from railroad extortion and
oppession ; that it contains no penal
provisions for the violation of the
regulations laid down ; and that it ex
tends the supervision of the com
missioners to water-ways , which
bslng free , may bo better
let alone. Though Mr. Reagan , as
chairman of the commerce committee ,
reported the Henderson bill to the
house , he immediately proposed a sub
stitute , which is known as the Reagan
bill. It prohibits discrimination ,
drawbacks , oppressive peelings , great
er charges for a shorter than for a
longer distance in the performance of
the same service , and other notorious
devices for robbing the public. It re
quires that the inter-state railrbads
shall adopt and keep posted schedules
of freight rates and charges , which
shall not be changed without five days'
public notice , .and provides for civil
proceedings for triple damages , a
quasi-criminal proceeding , and actual
indictment , involving a fine of not
lera than $1000 for violation of the
law. The main defect of the
Reagan bill is that it does not estab
lish a commission with certain
judicial and executive authority nec
essary t ? aid in the proper preparation
and prosecution of cases against
offending railroads. It is true that
the railroi\i desire if any legislation
be passed , that a coTirmjsion be pro
vided , but tlii y want a commission
with tie 1 hands and restricted pow
ers. The provisions of the Reagan
bill , with some changes , such as ex
tending the time for the required
notice of new schedules , and strength
ened by a responsible and efficient
system of a commission to assist in
the enforcement of the laws , after the
manner of the English system , '
would probably afTird the most sat
isfactory solution of the problem. It
is almost hopti-y ngaltut hope , however -
over , to anticip .ta any such beqneit
from the dying congress.

A correspondent asks for Informa
tion in regard to the greenback party
in the present and the next congress.
Sixteen votes were cast for the green
back candidate for speaker , Hendrick
B. Wright , March 19th , 1876.
Among those who so yoted was Wm.
D. Kelley , of Pennsylvania , who has
returned to the republican party , and
never was much of a greenbacker.
The other members voting for
Wright were March and Ladd of
Maine , Stephenson and Fonythe
of Illinois , De La Matyr of In
diana , Lowe of Alabama , Weaver and
Gillette of Iowa , Barlow of Vermont ,
Yocum and Wright of Pennsylvania ,
Russell of North Carolina , Jones of
Texas , Fordttf Missouri and Sculth of
New Jersey. Of these only the two
Maine members and Ford and Jones
lave been re-elected. One of the
ilaine men , Ladd , has definitely
joined the democrats. So the'greon-
ck members returned are reduced
to three. Add to those three , or pos
sibly four , new greenback members
elected in Missouri , and the total
itrength of that party in the next

PORTLAND , Oregon , December 1.
My former letter was written in San
Francisco. I know I did not do the
subject justice. It would take too
long to do so. One must study the
peculiarities of that remarkable city
long and thoroughly to be able to
place a fair estimate on what IB seen
by the casual observer , for beside all
the outside , there is an inwardness of
peculiar construction and of a various
character not easily sympathized with
by one who is a stranger in the sun
shine and shadow of its multltndious
life. Eastern men by a residence of
years become to some extent changed.
Associations of all kinds are more
easily formed ) and when formed ,
either for good or otherwise , are less
easily broken than in eastern towns.

Portland is situited about twelve
miles up the Willhumette from its
junction with the Columbia , and is a
city of about 20,000 inhabitants , 4000
of which are Chinamen , which latter
number , of course , includes the usual
few China women. They have their
town , which , as nsual on the coast ;
right in the heart of the best part of

operation is permitted by his reli

Portland , about three miles , where
they now live in a rented piece of
land , and In a very uncomfortable
board house , which shook and trem
bled with every fitful gust of the rain-
laden wind. The house is , on the
north , east and west , surrounded by
pine and fir trees , and is boarded upright -
right and unpointed , with perhaps
three rooms and a wood shed , under
which my hone found shelter while I
remained. The family at present
consists of Mrs. Logan , George and

children , ( a boy and girl ) Mrs.

came to the mother's eyes and ran
