Christmas an the Trl-Worklif to
Oat Through. By "andajr After-
DOOB if PoUlMt.
Col. J. B. Eddy, wntinnof the Christ
mas trip to Portland from The Dalles,
ays : "The rotary went ahead, pushed
by a 90-ton hog engine, and we followed,
pulled by three engines. The track was
cleared without any difficulty as far as
Cascade Locks, but between there and
Bonneville two engines had got stack
the day before and our rotary had to go
ahead, dig them oat and pall them back
to Cascade Locks again before we could
get through. Just as we are getting un
der way once more the tender of our
plow jumped the track. That accident
and the drifts on the way to Multnomah
falls kept us in Bonneville all night.
There we struck a drift so heavy that
the hog engine could not force the plow
into it. Our three engines were called
into use, and, with their assistance, the
way was cleared to Bridal Veil in two
hours. The big drift was struck at Lat
onrelle fulls, where a deep cut was
drifted full of snow to the height of an
engine smokestack, and for a distance of
about 300 yards. The snow was packed
hard by rain and wind, and the rotary
plow, pushed by four engines, could
make no headway against it.
"Finallv, as night drew on, a number
of section men got up on top of the drift
and broke the crust with shovels, and
with their help the plow 'ent slowly
forward. Every able-bodied man aboard
the train who could wield a shovel
pitched in and worked with a will. All
wanted to get through by Sunday after
noon, if possible. The women and
children gathered on top the big drift
to withess the grand sight of the rotary
snow plow under full head of steam,
tearing the huge pile of snow into small
fragments. If vou can imagine 100
powerful streams of water, similar to
those thrown by a fire engine, formed
into a semi-circle, then von have a faint
idea oiihe dazzling sight caused by a
rotary snow plow at work. But the
powerful pressure of four engines was
too much for the plow. The axle broke,
and we were again forced to return to
Bridal Veil. When our plow was re
paired we went ahead again and reached
Portland without further accident."
Mrs. Anna L. Davis of Chicago, a mis
sionary of the Woman's Foreign Mission
Society of the " Methodist Episcopal
church, who is en route to Nanking,
China, was one of the passengers. "We
were snow bound for 84 hours," she
said, "and our experience was rather un
pleasant. We arrived at The Dalles
Thursday morning and started for Port
land. We reached Hood River but
could get no further and had to return
to The Dalles. We staid there until the
next train arrived. Tben the railroad
officials took the Pullman sleeper on our
train, saying that they bad to take them
back to Pendleton. Then the passengers
of both trains, 385 in number, were
crowded into the sleepers and' day
coaches of the second train. We ex
pected to arrive in Portland yesterday,
and would have done so if the rotary
snow plow had not jumped the track and
broke on Saturday. About twenty-five
passengers walked from Bridal Veil to
Fairview to take the special train. We
spent Christmas pleasantly - enough.
The passengers in one of the cars ob
tained a tree, which they decorated. In
the evening Mrs. Besant delivered a lec
ture. The company did all in its power
to make the passengers comfortable.
We were especially grateful to Conductor
Coman, who made a number of trips to
the city to obtain hot coffee for us. The
passengers made up a purse of J50 and
presented it to him in recognition of his

decided to bold ' a national horse show
in this city next spring, comment is
freely expressed in the hope that Chicago
will profit, by the example set in New
York recently. Society in the empire
city, it is said, is still talking about its
horse-show. It was a gre.it event, ac
cording to the social leaders. There
was a fine display of tailor-made gowns,
of shiny silk hats, beautiful women,
patent-leather shoes and chrysanthe
mums. Also some gorgeous harnesses
anrf traiininae weie exhibited. there
were horses there to exhibit them on.
A celebrated- coaching expert appeared
at intervals in prominence, dazzlingly
accontered in approved equestrian cos
tumes." It is hinted that he had a new
and appropriate suit for everything he
did. There was interesting conversation
in the boxes ; also a profuse display of
millinery. The one thing which seems
to have been neglected in the horse-
show was a showing of horses. Hie
hitter attracted a minimum of attention.
Gait, breeding and build gave way in
interest to fanciness in harness and the
liveries of the horsemen. This state of
affairs is not new. It has marked most
of the swell horse-shows of latter years.
If those interested in ,the show to be
given in Chicago next spring wish to
cause a novel and interesting aiversion
they must pay less attention to inci
dental trifles and more to the horse.
That noble animal is, after all, deserv
ing of a little attention. Without him
there would be nothing to hang all the
fine harnesses on.
Milwaukee, Dec. 29. The threatened
strike of the brewers union in this city
is not vet settled. The union embraces
in its membership the men employed in
everv brewery in thecitv and all have
decided to demand an increase of wages
The increase asked tor is o a month on
the wages of all members of the union
and brewery- workmen. At present the
employers are bound by an agreemen
which will expire Jan. 1st. The demaud
for increased wages is based on the fact
that St. Louis brewery workmen receive
about $5 a month more wages than those
in Milwaukee. The men employed
the cellars here receive from $55 to $60 a
month and those in the wash house from
$50 toj$55. Besides, as is the custom
all the breweries, the men receive
liberal allowance of beer-checks and are
allowed to drink whenever thev feel like
it. The leaders in the union say they
do do not threaten a strike as yet, but
feel confident that the increase will be
This, however, is by no means assured.
The Milwaukee brewers have been
shaken up quite frequently, and the St.
Louis prices were always at the bottom
of the trouble. A year ago the biggest

capitulated to the Brewers' union and
paid the wages demanded by the men
Since that time the St. Louis manufac
turers of beer are said to have excited
the union here to demand the same
wages from Milwaukee brewing "firms
T ie Milwaukee employers claim that in
St.' Louie the men work overtime with
out pay, while here they are paid for all
overtime at one and one-half times the
rate of their regular pay! They say this
more than offsets any difference in
wages. The boycott has been found to
be more effective against beer than any
other commodity and the big brewers
fear its power. It is the method of the
Brewers' union to single out one or two
big brewers in a city and let the others
alone. In case there is a strike here the
Pabst brewery will be singled out, al
though the Schlitz brewery may also lie
included. If the men go out it means a

When the workmen were laying the
bituminous pavement on Washington
street in Portland, about one vear ago.
Mr. Frank Dekum earnestly protested
at the manner the work was performed
between the rails and over the ties of
the car line. His protest was carried in
to me columns ot the press, and at least
one editor we know of was soundly be
rated by Engineer Hahersham for
'making such a mistake." Dekum'a
protest fell flat, and he had a right to
protest, as he felt he was throwing his
twenty-dollar gold pieces to the heathen,
instead of paying for "an improvement"
abutting upon his property. Now that
the thing ends exactly as Mr. Dekum
predicted, the corporation has nobody
but its contractors to fall back upon: and
if the council does the square thing they
will see to it that the damages are made
good at the expense of the contractors,
and the car company. Almost those ex
act words, from the Telegram yesterday,
appeared in the East - Side Express a
year ago : " "The bitn rhinoas between
the rails presents an innumerable suc

Referring to the jute bag factory in the

Journal says the directors will soon pub
lish their aunual report', and then exact
figures will be given to show the state's
profit by the running of the jute mill.
It was said last summer that with the
new invoice of jnte then just ordered,
the state would reduce the cost of jute
bags nearly two cents each by the differ
ence in cost of material.. Those made
this year could not cost more than five
cents each, and: those of next year will
consequently be made for three cents or
a fraction over. This may be regarded
