The Salem bowling team which will
play against the club team Saturday

D'Arcy, Hatch, Barker, Griffith and

Senator McBride ha been urging up
on the official in Washington that work
te taken up and pushed to secure the
right of way for the proposed boat
runway at The Dalles. He con
k )d the chief of engineers a to just
what bad been done in this direction
and was told that for the right of way
and for the terminal facilities of the
boat railway, 323.83 acres of land were
required. Of this amount, up to June
HO last, title to, or right of way over
188 .09 acre bad been obtained. In view
of thi fact, be has urged that (he matter
be pushed to a epeedy conclusion, that
the right of way may be completed, and
some of the money now on hand be ex
pended in getting the project under way
in time to secure further appropriation
from the next congress. Until the right
of way 1 obtained, none of the fund on
hand can be expended, and congress will
make no further appropriation. The
fact that the right of way wag not fully
obtained prevented anv aDDronriation
for tbia project in the last congress.

In Favor of Colorado Sprlnga.
Chas. II. Gleira, traveling freight and
passenger agent of the Colorado Midland
Railway, is In The Dalle. The purpose)
of hli visit to our city is to interest the
Elks in the ma! ter of holding the grand
lodge meeting of 1900 in- Colorado
Springs. Tbe national meeting tbia
year in to be held in St. Louis in June,
and by instructing their delegate to
vote for Colorado Springs as the meet
ing place of the following year, the Elks
have no idea what a favor they will con
fer on those who are permitted to at
tend. To one who hn'B been privileged
to visit that beautiful place, and take ia
the grandeur of it surroundings Pike's
Peak, theGarden of tbe Gods, Cheyenne
Canyon, and numerous other places fully
a wonderful, the very Idea of cuch an
opportunity ia enough to create any
amount of enthusiasm and cause one to
wish ho might be a delegate. -
A trip over the road which Mr. Glelm
has the honor of representing is enough
to Induce all to vote for Colorado
Springs. No route could be chosen
which would give delegates better op
portunity to see scenery which must of
necessity be remembered for a life time.
as every newspaper representative who
bad the privilege of traveling over that
route laet year will affirm.
Tliis winter ha proven an excep
tionally hard one on the railroads
of Colorado, on this road in particular,
which for seventy-seven days was tied
up with a blockade of enow which ear
passed any previous blockade in its
history. One can scarcely believe the
weather bureau contain facta when it
give the fall of mow during the winter
along that road at 31.' s feet ; but such
were the reports.
Mr. Gleim will visit various lodges
throughout Oregon and as far as San
Francisco, in the interest of Colorado
Springs for a meeting place In 1900.
Muat Women Wear Wlga.
If the pompadour head prevails much
longer women will be bald and wig a
crying necessity. Already from across
the water come rumor of wigs worn by
smart Parisians, whereat our men groan
in spirit and beseech their womankind
not to adopt this latest freak of fashion.
But it isn't a freak of fashion; it has
reason for being, and many a woman
will bail with delight this opportunity
to bide her baldness.
In other day thosa same women
would have done their hair up on wav
ing pins over night, but the time has
passed when women are willing to go to
bed looking like frights. And that is
another reason for Increasing baldness
that so many women keep their heads
