A thoroughly responsible citizen
of The Dalles informs Tub Chron
icle that while in Portland a few
days ago a Democratic friend of
pronounced ascendancy in Demo
cratic councils informed him that tbe
Multnomah county Democrats were
seriously thinking of running Thomas
Harlan, tbe ex-Republican ex-Pop-ulist
and pro tern Democratic states
nan, late of Mosier, for congress to
soececd Malcolm A. Moody. Old
Tom has assured his Multnomah
brethren tbat be would go to tbe
Democratic state convention with a
solid Wasco county delegation at bis
back. And why not? To be sure
tbe old man isn't much of a sprinter
but he has a record as a Hopper tbat
would capture the cake from General
Weaver. Our Dalles friend earnestly
seconded Mr. Harlan's nomination
and predicted tbat the ex-Mosier
statesman would sweep this congres
sional district like a Kansas cyclone
aid carry all bis old political con
ferees over to the camp of Bryan.
That settles Malcolm's fate, sine die,
as it were. We advise him to throw
up tbe sponge.
What will the Brvans and tbe
Sulzers and the Pettigrews and the

government as mediator, wuh the
view of biinging about peace in
Sou'.b Africa, But the offer hns
been declined, as everybody knew it
would, but declined politely, withal,
and no proposals for peace are ever
likely to be entertained except on
the principle of unconditional sur

The Courier-Journal warns Ken

W. B. Presby, of Goldcndale, is

It is a fact not easily explained

Congressman Shaforth, of Colorado,
has sent Thc Chronicle a copy ol a
speech be delivered in congress a short
time ago on the duty of the United
States to get itself into a oess with
England over the Boer war. That Is
not quite the title Mr. Shaforth gives
his speech, but that is what his the
demogogic rant, amounts to. S'.iaforth,
iike Bryan and our own O'Day and
D'Arcy, et hoc geuns omne, are after
votes. While the two Oregon statesmen
just mentioned are sheading crocodile
tears over tbe Boers, they have sense
enough to know that if they were in the
Boer' nnrestricted power for aboot
twenty-five minutes the Bjers would
hang both of them for being Catholics.
Chas. H. Grosvenor, of Ohio, touches
Shaforth eff in fine style in a five minute
speech In reply. Mr. Grosvenor said :
"I want to go a great deal farther
thn tbe gentleman has. I sympathize
with every natiot. struggling for liberty,
and I hope my countrymen here on this
floor aill give patient attention for five
minutes to a few suggestions I want to
make, supplementary to those made by
the gentleman from Colorado. There
was a little, peaceable people in Europe
known as the Finlanders. Their nation
ality has been wiped out and destroyed.
A greater outrage, in defiance of human
rigbtb, was never perpetrated, unites,
perhaps, it was the destruction and dis
memberment of Poland ; and the statute
of limitation never runs against a crime
like that. Russia was engaged in that;
the other nations of Europe stood and
looked on at that. Sot only so, but re
cently the Greeks were sat down on by
the Turks and a terrible outrage, in my
judgment, was perpetrated. The over
whelming power of a eembarbarous na
tion was brought to bear to crueh
tbe life ont of little Greece, and it was
humiliated, taken possession of by for
eigners ard finally subjected to the dis
graceful and degraded position of a
power without any power of independ
ence or self-control. Then theAruun
ians were murdered by the Turks and
all tbe nations of tbe world stood by and
looked on ; and my friend from Colorado,
to far as I remember, was absolutely
silent. Now I have in my congressional
district some Finlanders and I have
Greeks in my district, and I have Ar
menians in my district. Laughter and
"I have in my district, Mr. Speaker,
some Hungarians, and I want to know
by what authority Austria crushes the
life out of the glorious independence
that Hungary had under Koseuth and
tbe great leaders of that day. Re
newed laughter and applause. I have
some Polacks in my district and I call
the attention of the gentleman from
Colorado, to the fact that the blood of
Pulaski, tbe brave Pole who fell at
Savannah in the defense of American
liberty, bas never yet been avenged, and
Poland has been destroyed and the men
of my district look lo me to vindicate
tbe integrity of their country. (Re
newed laughter. And then came that
great nation, Germany, that in the
straggle among nations, in many cases,
is a leader; but in the same way it took
those two beautiful provinces, Alsace
and Lorraine, and took those people
sway and ctrried them over to a country
that they do not belong to, and here we
are standing silently by. God Almighty
is looking at os I Great Isnhter. Why
do not we go and defy Germany? And
Mr. Speaker, there are Germans in my
district, there are Frenchmen In my
congreational district. There ou?ht to
he something done about this. Great
laughter. It was a terrible humilia
tion to France when the German army
came there and marched its victorious
columns through the great Arche de
Triumphe at tbe brad of their beautiful
street, the Champs Elyeee, and camped
in the woods of Boiogne and destroyed
the magnificent forest, then went to the
various historical places at St. Cloud
and Fontainbleau and desecrated the
temple of French history. It was an
awfal thing and we stood by and never
said a word, and there are F'renchmen
in my congressional district. Great
"Mr. Chairman, let us rije to the oc

I would suggest a commission of 25, not
more than thirteen of which shall belong

Under date of March loth, the follow
ing Dalies dispatch appears iu the Tele
gram :
"A special joint meeting of the com
mon council of this city and the bridge
commission appointed by i he state leg
islature in 1S95, was held last night for
the purpose of considering the proposi
tion of L. Gerllnger, piesident of the
Columbia Valley Railway Company, in
regard, to tbe conatructiuu of a bridge
across the Columbia river at this pnint.
"Congress in the early 90', or about
tbe time the North Dulles boom was
started, authorizsd tbe building of n
bridge across the Columbia at any point
within a stretch of five miles along The
Dulles waterfront. This authority has
never been taken advantage of. The
state legislature in 1895 passed a bill
authorizing the city of The Dalles to is
sue bonis to the amount ol f."0,000 for
the buildingof cuuh a bridge, and named
a commission of five members under
wboce direction the money was to be
spent and the bridge built. These bonds
have not yet been issued, and as no steps
have been taken to bridge the Columbia,
tbe bridge commission has had nothing
to do.
"Now that the Columbia Valley Rail
road is in need of a bridge at some
point near The Dalles, an effort is being
made by Mr. Gerlinger, Its promoter, to
secure the co operation of the bridge
commission and the common council of
this city. Mr. Gerlinger also wants the
toO.OOO bonds that may be issued and
the franchise granted by congress for
the building of the bridge.
"As the people if this city are n n h
interested in the projected road, the
probabilities are that Mr. Gerlinger will
get all be asks for. Moth the council
and the bridge commistion are very
favorably disposed towards the new road,
and while no ac'.ion was taken last
night the representative of Mr. Gerling
er, who was here, left satisfied.
The Telegram comments on the die
patch as follows :
"When seen lo regard to the foreifdlna
dispatch, L. Gerlinger, president of the
Co!UmbU Vnllnv Itnllieoe rv..
confirmed the statements contalnm! 1
therein, lie said his company dusires
and proposes to secure a bridge) across
the river at The Dalles, and divUInn
terminal facilities In that eily. J. D.
Mann, Mr. (ierlinger's confidential
agent, who has been active in promoting
tbi project atTho Dalles end, thotifht
that a bridge, such as the road would
conitrnct, would cost J200.000. From

enue office has just issued tc
Gerlinger $2079.19 worth of documw
stamps, of 2, 3 and 4 -cent dtne-i
lions. In the lot were foOO worft
cent stamps. What these are for in
surmised, as Mr. Gerlinger is not
ing to take the public into hit
fldence. Bol they are of the kin!
erally used for bonds. The d
conclusion, therefore, la'that Iht
road company bas sold bonds, an'
plenty of capital to go ahead win
construction work. In any event,
such a quantity of stamps as $2000
is needed there is evidence of so rot
ol a large business deal. It hat
currently reported that Mr. Ger
tried to acquire the old bridge p-1
Vancouver, with the idea of br!d
the liver there. The project, if iM
ed, will probably now be abanJV
favor of the one at The Dalles."
