liiBt Monday night for the purpose ol
hearing the report of the committee ap
pointed to Inquire Into the different
pronations which have been aubmlt
ted for ojieiilng the Columbia river
above The Dalle. The committee
made two reports, a majority and a mi
nority report The1 majority reixirt,
which was adopted, recommends thai
the proposition of the Columbia IUver
and Navlgutlou company (Molor's com
pany) be accepted. The proposition In
brief is that the company agrees- to
build a portago road around the rapid
above The Dalles on the Woshlngton
side, and put on a line of steamer
above and below The Dulles, provided
the cltens of Portland will take three
hundred thousand dollars of the Co.'
bond. The minority report favored
the formation of a stock company by
the citizens of the country tributary to
the Columbia river and building tin
rood on the Oregon side. The minori
ty report claimed that if Mollr's plau If
adopted his company would sell out at
soon as the Union Pacific company
made them a profitable ofl'cr. The mi
nority report, on the other hand, as
serted that sufficient money could not
be rulsed by the cltissens, the amount of
each Individuals utock being limited to
a small number of shares. It was also
asserted thut the small holders would
sell their stock to the railroad companj
and nothing woult) tie gained.' Tin
majority report was adopted.

Thk Whit Hoihk. The Presi
dent' house In Washington City Is
built of sundstone, and is painted whit.
This latter circumstance I pretty
generally given a the origin of Its
nam of White House. Hut there may
be other reason. Among the many
possessions of the Widow Custla, who
became famous in history a Martha
Washington, the wife of our first presi
dent, there was au estate on York river
Virginia, known a the White House,
from tbe fact that the mansloii on It
wits white. It is not altogether unlike
ly that the executive mansion was
named after this estate. The White
Hons estate on York river became tbe
proHirly of General Itotairt 10. Is'
wife who wo a great gniiid-thiughtcr of
Martha Warshlugtou by ber first hus
band, and was among the first of the
great Virginia houses to fall Into tho
hands of tbe Federals after the begin
ning of the war between the state. Of
course 'President Washington never
occupied the White House In Washing
ton City. Ho was Inaugurated In New
York City lu 17NI), aud Philadelphia
was the National capital during the
grater part of hi two term. Thomas

place In th city hall. Tbe building I
covered with a handsome display of
flower and fruits, which called forth
high expression of praise from be
holder. A large audience greeted the
fruit men on tlie opening of their de
liberation. Mayor M. M. Ellis called
tbe association to order, and made
neat speech of welcome to Delia lu
particular and Polk county In general.
In eulogistic term he referred to the
advantage of our county for fruit cul
ture, end hoped that the discussion
would stimulate Interest In the business,
extending to visitor the freedom of
tbe city. Dr. Oardwell, of Portlaud.oo
behalf of the society, accepted the wel
come, and spoke very flatteringly of
Dallas' beauty and of the wonderful
productiveness end adaptability to fruit
raising of the surrounding region. He
prophesied that tbe fruit Industry
would urs'rsetle in Importance the
growing of wheat and corn and oat.

J. H. Stine, tbe editor of tbe new

more newepaper Into the world than

doaen of them at k-ast, nearly all In

quite every paper started by him ha
beeu prosperous slue tbe start, and are
now making a good living for their
owner. Among lueee maybe nieu
tlouod the Grant' Pass Courier and
tlie Independence Was? Bids, both of
which are good paying propcrtlc. Mr.
Stine' plan ha beeu In tbe past to
publish a typographically neat and
newsy naiier In some town not before
blessed by Journalistio enterprise, and
having secured a good subscription list
and advertising patronage, seek a pur
chaser and sell out "when the bloom
waa on the rye." He Invariably got a
good price, and It seemed to him that
he was doing bettor in this way than
he could If be bad settled down In one
