TUii Viiellb! linprovnient Company has recently purchased twelve thousand acres of land iu the heart of Tehama county, for the purpose of promoting subdivisions and settlement. This land embraces lauds from ilrsl-class riaerumwito Valley agriculture laud, to land of fair average quality, ami i* ottVivd tU from 510 to f'JOper uere, ! In subdivisions of 10, SO, 12 1 ), l'Jt), 320 aerew. ! The terms upon which these lands are offered are especially attractive. They will bu sold in subdivisions, as above indicated, by the payment of luif-rest only for three years at which timcthe puiuhnf -er c»ui beKln the payment of principal by payIii)r the ilrst .<f live equal auuual fn^iall* in» i nt«. Thus no part of th' 1 principal is to be paid for three, years, and then the purchaser Is to have the years in which to pay live equal annual installments, with interest at '.lie rate of seven per cent per annum, making payments extending over a period of eight years. Intending purchuriera are assured that this is an opportunity to purchase land of fair average qualities at $10 per acre, and nood titjrieultnrKl land nt $20 per nore, with other grades of laud at prices to correspond between these fijnircs. The assertion is frequently made that good la nds.su liable for general farmluR and especially adapted for fruit growing, conuot be had In Cal- Ifofniu fur less than from 1*10 to $100 an acre. An examination of the laud subject of thU advertisement will prove to home seekrs that this is uu opportunity for the purchase of tfoort agricultural land at fUO uu acre, and for qualities grading down to fair agricultural hmd at flu an , acre, on terms of payment which should make the disposition of these lauds to actual settlers a result easy of accomplishment. The primnry objeet of the purchase of this body of laud was the breaking up of n large holding for the purpose of promoting its settlement in smaller quantities aud Its devotion to diligent husbandry.

Puneture Their Party'. Huintmir Kfl'nrta. The Republican tariff makers in congress have not neglected to use the stale arguments again about the "pauper labor of Europe;" anil the protected tummflecturers came before the JIcKin- ley committee with their accustomed tables of comparative wafres in Europo and America. And then they pointed despairingly to these tables of wages and whined out the usual rot about not I being able to compete with European pauper labor. But how much fact is there in this everlasting chatter about pauper labor? Is that labor really dangerous to us? Have our laborers anything at all to fear from competition from that source? Fortunately we have the very highest Republican authority for bt'Uflving that American labor is so efficient us complied with that of Europe that we have absolutely nothing to fear from foreign labor competition. During President Haves' administration Hon, William M. Evarts, his secretary of state, inado r. report on tho • 'Sta te of Labor in Europe." This report bears date of May 17. 1879. The American consuls in Europe were directed to examine into the condition and character of European la bur, .uid lo report their observations to the department of 6tftte at Washington. Their reports were so striking tlutt Secretary Evarts made liberal extracts from them, introducing these extracts with the following strong assertion: "The average American workman performs from one and one-half to twiuo as much work in a given time its the a-v£rag ,3 European wurkinnn. This is so important our ability to compete with the clieit]i labor niiiTjitfactufpis of Europe, and it seems at first thought so strange, that I will trouble yon with somewhat longthy quotations from the reports iu support thereof." The secretary then gave a number of extracts from the reports of the consuls, a few of which are worthy of repro- ' duction here. They are as follows: I Denmark—Another evil is the diminished worth of wages, the descending quantity and quality of work now obtained by employers for wages higher than those paid ten years ago.—From the lieport of the Consul at Copenhagen. , Prance—At his work the French la- ' borer or mechanic lacks the energy of : the American of the same class, and the amount of work executed by him is much less in the same number of hours. The hours of labor are from eleven to twelve, but an average American workman will accomplish as much in nine hours.—From the Report of the Consul at Bordeaux. Germany—I am satisfied that an ordinary workinguian in the United States will do as much again as will one in this district in the Bamo time.—From the Report of the Consul at Chemnitz, Saxony. An active American workman will do as much work iu a given time, at any employment, as two or three German workmen.—From the Report of the Consul at Leipsie. There can be uo question that, speaking in general terras, the quality as wall as the quantity of the work of the German artisans is inferior to that produced by the Americans. The workman here is inclined to be sluggish, and what he accomplishes is relatively small,— From the Report of the Consul at Sonno- werg. These were all good Republican consuls, be it remembered, and appointed by Republican presidents. This was eleven years ago, and the Republican party would do well to remember the words of its secretary of state at that time. The facts brought out by the consuls led Mr. Evarts to remark: "For the first time our manufactures are now assuming international proportions. At a time of universal depression we have met those nations which hold a monopoly of the world's markets—met them iu their strongholds, and established the fact that American manufactures are second to the .manufactures of uo other nation; and that with a proper and JIH- triotio understanding between a capitalist and laborer we can command a fuir share of the buying world's patronage, and command that patronage with larger profits to the capitalist and higher wages to the laborer than can be made or paid in any other country." And he adds: "Within the last fifteen I years we have demonstrated our ability, I by the brilliant development of our own ' resources, to exclude by honest competition foreign manufactures to a large | extent from our shores. The question | which now peremptorily challenges all I thinking minds is how to create a for| eign demand for those manufactures HhoDliiK , wliioh are left after supplying our homo demands." But Mr. Evarts was not the onl^ Ru- publican secretary of state who found out something about European labor. Sacred Heart Convent — I field he made a report on tile mills in the other .New Kngutna States, where the wages are generally less than 'ti MawacUuKetbi, are usually sixty-six to sixty-nine per week. Undoubtedly the inequalities iu the wages of English and American operatives are more than equalized by the greater efficiency of the latter aud their longer hours of labor. If this should prove to be a fact in practice, as it seems to me to be proven from official statistics, it would be a very important element in | tho establishment of our ability to corn- J pete with England for our share of the : cotton goods trade of tho world." j With such statements from their lead- 1 ers is it not. time for Republican politicians to quit prating about pauper labor? : PERSONAL GOSSIP. The Nredlessiie.as of .Subsidies. The scheme in congress to grant subsidies to ships in order to build up an American merchant marine has not yet been abandoned, notwithstanding the rapid rate at which the surplus has been melting before the extravagant legislation of the Republican majority. It is pretended by the friends of the subsidy measure that there is a lack of steam communication between our porta and South America and Central America. This, they say, is the reason why ouf trade with those parts of the world does not flourish, for thoy are fast set in their determination not to admit that a little thing like it tariff cmi hinder trade. The people who are hungry for bounties out of the public, treasury haye al) iljong been saying, "It is for laul£ of shipping; pay us a big sum and wo will build the ships." But is there a lack of shipping? A single New York firm has recently chartered six Norwegian steamers to run between New York and Central American ports—and these steamers have no aub.i j whom he^never saw, sidies whatever. In order to asoertain -«--•-• — how far it is true that our trade with countries south of us is crippled for lack of shipping The New York Evening Post has made an examination into the matter ami Ints secured a list of the foreign built steamers running during May and UKIAH NORMAL SCHOOL. 0^*The first term,of foiirneholtfHtfc inonthp, will twKln 1" BARN EH' HALL, MONDAY, HEI'T.

Ukiah Cigar Factory, PAUL BAIERi Prop. June of this year from ports in the point in connection with I United States t'o West Indian, Central j I American and South American ports' : qtider charter to merchants in the United j j States, [t lias in this way catalogued 8'4 j j such steamers, of which -15 are Norwe- j giau, 4Si British, 9 German, 1 Spanish ] j and 1 Russian, nil running without any j ; subsidy from any government whatever, I i and there are probably others of which j : no record t-.iists iu New York, j | This inquiry brought out tho further i | fact that twelve fast steamers, each of I about 700 tons register, bad been built j at Bergen, Norway, and with Norwegian capital, the past year, from designs made 1 in this country under orders from Ameri- 1 , can merchants, who have chartered them | for three years' continuous service to run ' between New York, Boston and Phi) a- : delphia aud the West, Indies. All these steamers are making handsome profits \ both for their owners and their employers, and the business is constantly increasing. But here are a number of steamers running profitably without subsidies. True they are only chartered by Americans; but a charter serves the same purpose as ownersliip, and these are practically American ships. They would carry the American flag if it were not for our stupid navigation laws, which , forbid an American citizen from floating the Stars and Stripes on a foreign built vesRel. The laws do not, forbid the purchase of these vessels; only they shall not be called American vessels. American citizens do, in fact, own a large number of ships which sail under foreign flags. A single firm in New York is said to own or control a foreign fleer of forty vessels—all upon the high seai- without subsidies. i Capt. John M. Forbes, of Boston, has bought a number of such vessels, aud says that he buys them abroad because he can get tiem cheaper than at home, and for no other reason. Our navigation laws are a twin stupidity to our higit tariff itself. ! Maj. Butter-worth's salary as seeretar' of the Columbian fair is to be *l?,5uti.

Let tho farmer here note one till important fact, viz., that a nation buys most readily from thoso to whom it can also sell. Tho McKinlej idea of soiling to foreign countries without buying from them is in the long rim impossible. Trade between nations is barter, and the more widely we open onr ports to foreign goods the greater will be the demand for our farm products with which to make payment for these for- tiign goods. Under this view Blaine's condemnation of the McKinley bill does not go far enough. Not only does that bill fail to open a "market for another bushel of wheat or another barrel of pork," but it actually tends to clow the foreign mar- ko,'; by driving away foreign trade from our shoros. There Is the fatal objection to tho bill. OeUued. "What ure qmidrumaua!"' "Monkeys and millionaires."
