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. PORT- 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 plain." . 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 county. . 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: You can buy Standard Mowers, Reap era, Rakes, or anything in the implement line, as cheap from J. JVl. r moon & Vo as if you were in Portland. They keep an unlimited supply of extras for all ma chines sold by them. Opposite Brooks & Beers. 4-r-'wtt NOTICE. B. E. French has for sale a number improved - ranches and unimproved lands in the Grass Valley neighborhood in Sherman county. They will .be sold very cheap and on reasonable terms. Mr. French can locate settlers on some good unsettled claims in the same neigh- borhood. His address is Grass Valley, Sherman county, Oregon. - Children Cry for Pitcher's Castpria. When Baby waa olck, we gare her Caatoria. When ahe was a Child, she cried for Castoria, When she became Miss, she clung to Caatoria, , When she had Children, the gave them Caatorfu , if 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. ' , 910- Keward. . ixst or stolen irom my ranch near Kingsley, a dark brown horse, branded R.
