CARRYIXG CO.XCEALED WEAPOSS Reganticg tbe -shooting scrape at Pendleton, the East Oregonian aptly ajs: The cowardiy habit of "packing a gun" contrary, to law is chargeable wii!t another crime in l'eudleton. One wan Is tu Jul and another lies in bed seriously wounded as a result of it. The young man who had a weapon concealed on his person, with which he shot tLe other, h a year or more ago admitted to practice law, and although having knowledge of the law he deliberately violated il by going aimed as if there were no law, or no one to enforce il. If be possessed the least respect for his chosen profession, or for the law, or for order, or for any of the viilues that support society, he would never have armed himself like a biifiand, and he would be free from serious trouble at this minute. This young man had no cause to carry a dangerous weapon on his person and is deserving of little sympathy in his present trouble in cocsequence, wbile bis victim is deserving of a good deal, for, al though engaged in an avocation which necessarily brought him into contact with reckless and desperate characters, be never saw fit to stick a pistol in his pocket or Bowie knife in bis boot leg for either purpose of offense or defense. By this one act he demonstrated his superiority over those whose physical and mental de ficiencies were such as to cause them to seek consolation in the protection afforded by some dangerous weapon. The lesson to be learned from this tragedy is that the law should be rigidly enforced against nil persons cirrying concealed weapons contrary to the law. The officials could not render a more valuable service to society than this. hUREWD tiVUEUL : OfrSALM0X. The close fishing season did not suit the fishermen on the lower Co lumbia this summer, though it may bve been very agreeable to the fiih, says the Telegram. TLe state ment that the salmon only fairly commenced running Just as the season closed, and that soon after ward they were so thick that they literally crowded one another out of the water, may be taken as an ex asperated fisherman's exaggeration, yet there is enough truth in il to suggest that the calendar close sea eon did not correspond with the time of the fishes' migration. For some reason the salmon adopted a new time table this sum mer, perhaps because they had ob tained from some drowned fisherman a copy of the law; perhnps because they smelt a spell of winter in August. At all events, the law al lowed the fish to get tbe best of the fishromen this year, nnd efforts will bo made to put the close season off till a little later in the season, by a change in the Is w. The loss to the fishermen this year may be a gain to them and to the state, in an increased run of salmon in future years. No close season at all would suit some people best. But all reasonable fishermen, as well as others, agree that a close season of a month is necessary; though arbi trary dates cannot exactly fit every season best THE SOUTH NOT SLIGHTED. Many Southern and a few North ern papers are saying that the South has been overlooked in the recruiting of troops for the war with Spain and the conflict with the Filipinos. The fact that the recruiting; point of none of tbe latest ten regiments will be located nearer tbe South than St. Louis, which is not in tbe South at all, is calling out some protests from the region below Mason and Dixon's line. The New Orleans Picayune, for example, speaks of what it calls "the contemptible narrow-mindedness and prejidice which hare so long characterized the war department concerning the employment of ofll- cers and troops from the Southern slates." This charge is hardly reasonable. No volunteers from the South were in any of the battles in Cuba against Spain becauso none of the Southein regiments ere trained sufficiently at the time the Cuban campaign be gan to Justify the military com mander of the expedition to Cuba in taking any of them with him. Only two volunteer regiments trotn the whole country took an active part in Shafter's campaign, one being from New York and the other from Massa chusetts. These two particular regi ments were trained and disciplined up to the standard rtquired by the exigencies of the service, but none of the other regiments were, and con sequently these two were the only ones which participated actively in the fighting in Cuba. No sectional partiality has been shown by tbe administration in the matter of raising or employing troops either this year or last year. Two of the ten new regimeuts whose ranks have just been filled were re cruited in the South one in Georgia and the other in Texas. The reason why none of the ten regiments re cently ordered are to be recruited in the South is because the authori ties want to have them located as near as possible to the direct route to the ports of embarkation. The South will ge: its full . quota of officers of these regiments, however. There can be no complaint on that score. No Southern regiment has taken part in the recent campaign in the Philippines except one from Tennessee. Neither has any Eastern regiment participated in that cam paign save one from Pennsylvania. These two chanced to be the only regiments from the country east of the Mississippi which weiy in the Philippine campaign. The admin istration naturally selected for trans portation to the Philippines regiments located as near to the Pacific coast, the point of embarkation, as possible, The East has made no complaint of unfair disci imination on that account. In fact, there has been no real partiality shown to any state or local ity in the conflicts of 1893 or 1839. All sections have, as nearly as prac ticable, been treated alike in the distribution of the burdens and honors of the war. Globe-Democrat. MR. ROOT TAKISO HOLD. "The new secretary of war, Mr. Elihu Root, has taken hold of the woik of his office in a quiet but thorough way, which promises well for his success in administering it. He makes no promises, and no boasts, but is getting familiar. with the facts and the evidence, as he would with those of a case he had to try in court, and as soon as he has mastered them he will go ahead in a manner which, we are confident, will satisfy the nation. "In spite of a widespread belief to the contrary, the training of a good lawj-er is tbe best possible prepara tion for the duties of an executive office. The mere fact that lawyers are so often called upon to undertake these duties, is of itself n conclusive argument in favor of their fitness for tbem. Ignorant demagogues may declaim as much as they please against the preponderance in tbe government of men of tbe legal pro fession, but if their objections were justified the people would have long ogo found it out. That so many lawyers are sent to legislatures and to congress, and are elected .as mayors, governors ind even presi dents, proves that experience in practicing law does not disqualify, at least, men of public service in these capacities. Successful lawyers, more than men in any other calling, are requited to possess a general knowledge of things. "We repeat that a well-trained and well-informed lawyer like Elihu Root, is tbe best possible material out of which to make an executive officer, and we shall be greatly disappointed if Mr. Root does not confirm our opinion." Tbe above is a portion of an edi torial article in the New York Sun. Tbe news coming from Washington every day of the manner in which Mr. Root is taking hold of things, goes to Justify the estimate of his abilities and the value of bis train ing, and tbe prediction of a success ful administration of his great trust. While he is feeling his ground care fully, Mr. Root is pushing things all along the lint with an evident de termination to make a record of efficiency for his administration, and of glory for bis country. INDUSTRIAL UROWTU. The industries of the country are growing as rapidly now as at any previous period of the history of the country, and the census returns next vear will show tbe advancement during the decade has been quite remarkable, in spite of tbe fact that the country bad a panic year and several years of recovery after that panic. The population has iLcreased about 23 per cent in the last nine years, und according to figures of the bureau of statistics there has been an average growth of 42 per cent in the output of six important industries. Compaiing tbe figures of the first six months of 1899 wit'i those of the first six months of 1890 it appears that there has been an increase of 40 per cent in tbe quantity of iron used, an increase of 42 per cent in the amount of cotton manufactured, an increase of 25 per cent in the woolen goods output, an increase of 28 per cent in the boots nnd shoes shipped by factories, an increase of C3 per cenlin imports of raw rubber. Tbe average gain for each of these industries is 42 per cent, which is almost twice ns great as the increase in population. There was more or less activity at the first of the decade, but the greatest improvement has been recorded during the past few years, and that improvement ought to continue, if men have learned any lessons from the trials they have encountered and an entirely new phase of tbe situation is not pre sented by the operation of the combi nations of capital. ANOTHER COUNTY HEARD FROM And Complaint Made Against The Hook anil Ladder Equipment. Ed. Chronicle: In Saturdty'a issue of the Ciibomci.e, under the heading "The Fire Boys Should Be Encouraged," you sUte that a well equipped hook end ladder truck is a necessity to a fire de partment. This is only too true, and has been shown to be a fact at almost every firo in The Dalles during the laet three years, and it ia merely a farce to see the condition of the dilapidated hook and ladder truck, with its burly ladders that require eight or ten men to raise them, come rushing 'dow n to the scene of a Ore to do effective work. It is simply preposterous to see an energetic community, alleged to have an Al fire department, allow themselvtt to be in possession of a track of the de scription that the Hook and Lidder Company take "pride" in hauling to a fire. The Hook and Ladder Company, as I understand, is well attended and very much in evidence at every alarm of fire, aud it would be only consistent if the city authorities were to secure a desir able outfit for the valuable services rendered by this company in the past. I have been told that a suitable hook and ladder truck and rigging could have been purchased for a nominal figure a short time ago, but the city did not see fit to purchase on account of many other investments of a more substantial (7 nature ; but, since that time, the above mentioned outfit has been disposed of to some enlivened community that makes some effort at (applying thoir volunteer companies with modern ap pliances in appreciation of their services in saving its citizen, property. Could not the Chronicle suggest some manner of procuring funds wherewith to purchase an appropriate outfit, since the city council has deemed It unneces sary to invest its funds in this manner? Ego Cbiticis. Like the Yankee, tbe Ciibomci.e will answer the question by asking another, and would be glad to hear from any who may have suggestions on the sub jects. Oregon I Heenmlng Famona. Never has Oregon experienced so much tourist travel as during the present summer, particularly along tbe Columbia river. Every day parties come op at least as far astbe Cascades ; but many of them make the trip on the upper river, and by so doing gain a pretty fair knowledge of The Dalles and its resources. W bile tbe rains this year have cleared the atmosphere and made tbe scenery more beautiful to tbe eye, our snow-capped peaks have somehow chosen to bide their heads behind the clouds, and many of the sight-seers have been compelled to retnrn with but a f.;t i,l-i of their eraridrur. However, the view which can be obtained directly Ion, the river banks bas been sufficient to repay them fur the trip. Oregonians who are traveling iu other states are continually reminded of the wide-f pread fame of our own scenery. But a few weeks ago, in company aith a party, Miss Georgia Hrupon was taking a cruise around Lske Huron, when to her delight a gentleman from Michigan, npon learning that she was from Oregon, bean to enlighten his companions re garding tbe grandeur of Cuuibla river scenery and gave it such a send off as would make the heart of any Oregonian swell with pride, lie also sai 1 Portland was the naeet city of its size in the United States, and. although be traveled much, he bad not found a better man aged hotel than the Portland. We can imagine M'es Georgia was not slow in showing her loyalty to her native state. SHEEP ON THE RESERVES. What Itlngor Ilerinaou'a Vlewa Are on the ftubject. Hon. Binger Hermann, U. S. land commissioner, who has spent his vaca tion at his home in Koseburg, left Port land last night for Washington, D. C, where he is due Saturday night. In talking with a Telegram reporter, he said : "While at home ou this trip I have been giving more than usual attention to the suhject of sheep grazing on the timber reserves in this elate. I have studied this question for many years, bnt in view ot the position taken by the secretary of agriculture recently, I hae given the matter still further considera tion, and I must say that I differ with Secretary Wileon. "'ow, I am in favor of taking the sheep off of the reserves in certain locil ities. For instance, in New Mexico, Arizona aud other states where it is very dry, it Is highly necessary that the sheep should be kept off, snd they are. Bnt herein Oregon, where there is so much rain, and where the forests are nearly all of fir, the removal of the sheep is not necessary. There is plenty of grass and there is absolutely no danger of ebeep injuring the growth of fir. "The latest statistics Bhow that Ore gon is at the head of the list in the wool business. Why should we cripple this very great industry by restricting the grazing piivileges when Buch restriction cannot possibly benefit the forget. "The reports of the deputies who are right in the forests, and who see whal is goiDg on, do not indicate that in any way the sheep are detrimental to the forest or to the young growth there. "JJow, I contend as I have in the past that so long as the sheen do not hurt the reserves, that they should be allowed to graze thero and thus help to foster one of our great industries. "It is poesible to prevent any injury whatever arising from sheep grazing on the reserves. All that is mceesaiy is to limit the number of sheep allowed on them to so many head, and limit the number of months in each year that sheep shall run at large on them. There, with one or two other restric tions, will be a safeguard against any possible damage that could arise. It will b remembered that Secretary Wilson, after his recent visit to th's state, recommends that the grazing of sheep on timber reserves be stopped, and there is said to be danger of the secretary of interior adopting Secretary Wilson's suggestions unless the people of Oregon make it known at Washington that they do not desire such a change. As is well known, Commissioner Her mann has always recommended that sheep be allowed to grze on thetc lands, and from the opinions expressed believe it Is clear that he means to corntinus to fight in the interest of the great sheep and wool industry of Oregon.

A woman's account of torture which lasted three years; of her struggles against the dreadful disease and the good fortune that crowned her efforts. ' Such suffering as rheumatism causes the victims upon whom it fastens itself is al most unendurable. Sufferers from the worst types of this ter rible disease will supply the missing hor rors in the following story from real life. Those who writhe under milder forms of rheumatism will be able to imagine the feelings of the tortured victim. The only Justification for making public such heart-rending details a the fact that the lesson taught will be helpful to others, pointing the way to renewed life and health to every sufferer from rheumatism. The story is told by a woman. Her name is Mrs. Caleb Fenlyj she Uvea in St. Paul, Ind. This is her account t "I am a farmer's wife. I believe my frequent exposure to the weather caused my terrible attack of rheumatism. Damp weather always aggravated it. 44 My limbs would begin to swell at the ankle joints. 44 This swelling would begin In the night, it times. I would awake in agony. "Daylight would find my limbs purple in color, swollen to twice their natural size, and so racked with pain I could not bear to touch them. "My right arm and both legs were so drawn as to be almost useless. "My skin became dry and yellow. "At times my limbs would pain as though millions of needles were pricking' them.
