HURRAH FOB HERMAN.
Tbe Appropriation Bill Passed the Point
of Danger today.
The following telegram was received
by Col. N. B. Sinnott, from Representa
tive Herman, this afternoon :
Washington, May 9. The river and
' harbor bill has just passed the house.
A contract is required for the Cascade
locks completion. Accept congratula
tions for this great victory.
The passage of the river and harbor
bill is of immense import to The Dalles,
and Eastern Oregon. Now if the senate
does not load it down with amendments
that will defeat it there, it will surely
- pass that body' and then The Dalles
will take a spurt in material advance
ment such as she has never seen since
George Francis Train walked acrosa the
Columbia on the backs of the salmon.
MArS INFLUENCE ON A
. . LAND EDITOR.
From an editorial in a late issue of the
Telegram we infer that the editor is a
widower with a large family of young
children. It appears he had been pay
ing attention to a Portland lady named
April, when a stranger, called May,
probablv from Eastern Oregon, visited
' the webfoot metropolis and fairly cap
tured the widower's heart. A Telegram
compositor found a couple of love letters
. which tbe editor recently addressed to
the two damsels and, weaving them into
a "leader," placed both in the editorial
column, mat gave tbe whole snap
away. The editor frankly tells his
former flame that he has no more nse for
her. She is too old for him. She never
tried to please him anyhow, but
"stormed and wept and tore her hair,
and screamed and wailed most of the
time." She had become jealous, too, of
the widower's attention to her younger
and fairer rival. And so he determines
. to cast her off . but, as if afraid of the
effect of his rejection on one so supreme
ly sensative, he advises here to take a
twelve-month's sea voyage, hinting the
. while that if she comes back better tem
pered, with more smiles and less tears,
'he may talk business to her. But he
-does not mean a word of it, and his let
ter to Miss May whoever she is, proves
it. He tells the latter, as if marking the
Contrast between her and her jilted
. rival, that she is "young, fresh, fair,
' . smiling, beautiful ; that she never weeps,
unless, perchance, "just a drop, lost
next moment in a dimple." Then the
old fool fairly slobbers over with spooni
. ' ness and he calls his new flame, "bright,
beautiful, graceful, happy, radiant, glor
ious May," and wants to get away from
the print shop, and be with her always,
and kneel down before her and make
an all round lunatic of himself. Then a
. jealous thought flashes across his mind
or, possibly it was only resentment at
some wrong that a member of the Port
land branch of the weather bureau had
done to Miss May, and he calls them a set
. of coarse, brutal, ugly creatures, (while
the world knows that Pague, at least, is a
handsome man,) and wants every
mother's son of them to prostrate them
selves before her and be thankful they
are permitted to live while she remains
in the country. Then once more, as if
he feared that May might question the
sincerity of his affection, he says: "To
tell the truth and it is a truth so welling
and swelling in our heart, I'm dead
stuck on you," or words to that effect,
.Then he gets awful bad and blubbers
something about "gazing with awesome
tenderness into the unfathomable depths
of her azure eyes," and something more
about being bewildered and entranced,
which is quite likely, for the next
moment he asks May to be kind to "us,
meaning the children, we suppose, and
swears he never liked April a bit, he
only kept her company till May would
come. Ten finally the father's . heart
asserts itself and he addressed a post
scrip to his motherless children, expect
ing, likely. May would send it to them, as
he was busy in the office: . "May is
here," says the postscript, "revel all ye
happy children, be better and brighter,
It only remains for us to add, as we do
with much tender, sympathy for this
lorn brother, editor that May appears
to be, either a grass-widow with no hope
of a divorce, or a real widow with a fam
ily of children of her. own. or, possibly,
the editor expects his" mother-in-law to
come and live with bim for he says, not
we imagine without a touch of plaintive
sadness ; "we cannot have her all to our-
self but we can have as much of her as
anyone can; and so .we cannot com
The possibilities for fruit culture that
lie hidden in the valleys and : hills of
Wasco county, especially in that portion
that borders on the Columbia river and
stretches from ten to twenty miles
southward, wiU never be fully appreci
ated by the outside world till men visit
this region and see with their own eyes
what has already been done in hundreds
of places, in comparatively small patches
and with all the disd vantages of a lack
of sufficient capital for the proper de
velopment of this important industry.
The earlier orchards were all planted on
creek bottoms or on the margins of
streams, because the first settlers had no
idea that anything, let alone fruit, and
excepting only bunch grass and sage
brush, could be grown on the hills and
plateaus. Now it has been proved by
years of actual experience that our very
best fruit and grain lands are on the
slopes and benches so long despised and
neglected. .We have now passed the ex
perimental stage with these lands and
the product of tens of thousands of grape
vines and fruit trees of every variety
possible to be produced in this latitude
abundantly testify that' no better
fruit country than this exists on the
American continent. At the Port
land exposition of 1891 the fruits from
this section took the first premium over
the entire Northwest. In a paper read
last fall by B." S. Paene, chief of the
United States signal service for Oregon,
at a public meeting held in Salem, the
following testimony is borne to the cli
matic conditions of this section : "On a
strip of land extending from the Cascade
Locks to about fifteen miles east of The
Dalles, and extending southward three
to ten miles, can be found the highest
or warmest night temperature of any
place in Oregon, and in the next ten
years this section will be producing the
best peaches raised on the Pacific coast,
and more peach trees, considering the
area, will be planted here than in any
area of ground of equal extent in the
state." Mr. Pague should have said,
not that in ten years something is going
to be done, but that even now this sec
tion is producing the best peaches grown
in the state, and this is no truer of
peaches than it is of pears, apples,
plums, cherries, prunes and strawberries.
Alas! that after all, so few should ap
preciate the wealth that lies in the
valleys and rugged hillsides of ; Wasco
. Speaking of Binger Herman, the Wei-
-come perpetrates the following joke: He
cannot compare, and . is not to be men
tioned in the same sentence with B. M,
Veatch, his opponent, who is to Her
mann as Hyperien to a batyr. If we
want a first-class man, leave Hermann
at home and send Veatch there:

The tendency of modern thought, both
among a widely extended class of so-
called religious teachers and amid the.
busy crowds of men whose perceptions
o'f the unseen and eternal are being con
stantly blunted by their absorption in
things material and transient, is un
doubtedly drifting away from a belief in
the miraculous. The old argument of
Hume, that it is easier to believe that
the earlier witnesses were deceived than
to believe the marvels of New Testament
story, holds sway over millions of minds
who are conscious of its power, though
they may be unwilling to adopt and
avow it in so many words. If miracles
happened then, why not now? How do
we know that those first witnesses were
not deceived? Would that we had been
there to test the presence of the super
natural for ourselves ! Such is the atti
tude of many who would hardly care to
be classed as anti-christian or infidel
And yet, if words have any meaning.
written records are to be construed with
any relation to grammar or conventional
usage, nothing ever can be clearer than
that the Christianity from which the
miraculous is eliminated is not the
Christianity of the New Testament nor
of Christ. If the miracles are the pro
duct of a credulous and non-critical age,
or the fruit of hysterical fancy distorting
natural phenomena ; if the crowning mir
acle is a lie, and Jesus of Nazareth still
sleeps beneath the stars Of a Syrian sky,
then the religion of the bible, like every
other, fails to answer tbe universal long
ing of the human heart for some author
itative and God-given pronouncement on
the great facts of human existence, with
all their attendant contradictions and
perplexities. ' The miracle of all mira
cles is Christ himself. In the story of
His life the miraculous and the natural
are so intimately blended, who shall
draw the line and tell where fact ends
and fiction begins? He spake as never
man spake. ; It is no truer that he lived
than it is that he claimed prerogatives
such as no mere mortal ever had a right
to claim. If these claims were true his
life, his death, his resurrection, . were
one divinely and .'morally consistent
whole. If false, his life, despite the mor
al grandeur of his teaching, was at best
a living lie and himself an impostor. He
was either a miracle of divinity or a mir
acle of imposition, and there is no mid
dle ground. '
