Will the nt "congress give us

It ws oruel of Wilhclro to refuse
to receive Oom Paul. He should
remember that President McKinley
received the envoys and showed
them the view from his back win
dows. President McKinley's message
was no doubt a profound and
statesmanlike document, but it is
improbable that very many people
eat up until the wee sma' hours
reading' its exciting passages.
President McKinley is said to
have asked congress to guess what
he had for them. "And tho boys
guessed right, the very first time"
They guessed it was a message and
it wa one of 18,000 words.
Croker's campaign aga! nst vice is
said to be for revengo against his
henchmen who didn't help him out
as he thought they should. It is
ungrateful, of him, though, when
we consider how good vice has al
ways been to him.
They believe in rigid justico in
Canada. The Ottawa courts have

The keepers of the vile resorts in
New York have closed up but they
haven't moved out. They judge
from the paBt that the present
spasm of reform will run its course,
just as a blizzard does and the
chances are that they are right.
Some day soon, we shall all wake
up and find ourselves in the next

The shipping bill will have a
rough road through the senate. It
will probably pass if it ever comes
to a vote but it is doubtful whether
it can do this. If it ever passes the
upper house, however, it will go

The prospects for building the

It might be just as well to wait
until congress has time to act be
fore we decide positively just what
war taxes are to be removed.
Nearly every paper in the state
has had a lick at the ship subsidy
bill, yet it is safe to say that the
editors of nine-tenths of these
papers, not only have no know
ledge of what effect the passage of
the bill would have, but aside from
the general idea that the bill pro
vides for a bonus of some kind,
know nothing even of the text of
the measure. Future embarrass
ment is often avoided by giving a
matter thouchtful consideration he

The Daily Times-Mountaineer, o!
Tho Dalles, has susended public
tion. It seen s that that thriving
little city of Eastern Oregon has
also been struck with the cyclone o
McKinley prosperity and pretty
hard too. -Cottage Grove Leader.
The trouble with tho Times
Mountaineer, as with a good many
other little poocratio sheets
throughout this state, is that too
much McKinley prosperity has
struck their respective localities, so
much that tho picking has Itccome
very short for them. Hoseburg

in charge of a herd of 500 reindeer
bought by the United States gov
ernnvnt in the hope that these ani
mals would thrive and multiply in
that country. The country, accord
ing to Latta, did not suit either the
Lapps or the reindeer. It was cold
enough, but different in many ways
The reindeer did nol get the same
food or treatment that they did in
Lapland, and what, with being
transported long distances,. with
the confinement and dfPcomfoiT'-at
transportation means to all ani
mals, ignorance and brutality in
handling, and scant, unaccustomed
food, the wretched creatures perish
ed miserably. Nor did the Lapps
fare much better, as their sadly
decimated ranks show. The ex
periment was both futile and costly
and represents the initial blunder
of the war department under the
direction of secretary Alger.
Senator Meltride Tuesday attend
ed the meeting of the Nicaragua
canal committee, which, in an in
formal way, discussed the canal
biil and the possibilities of its pass
age at this session. After this con
feience with other members, h
says that his opinion as expressed
in Portland that tho canal bill
would pass if the Ilay-Pauncefote
treaty is ratified Btill " holds good
and, in fact, has been confirmed
and strengthened. lie holds the
sentiment prevails among Republi
can senators that the treaty should
be raulieu first, when inero will bo
no difficulty whatever in getting
the bill through. It is his belief
that a number of loading Republi
can senators will stand out against
the canal bill until the treaty is
ratified, taking the ground that to
pass the bill regardlees of the treaty
will be to offer a deep insult to

The Dallas Observer goes out of
its way to charge the West Side
with making "nasty little flings at
Dallas in nearly every issue." The
West Side has simply called the
attention of its readers to a fact;
as stated before, when- Dallas poo
pie thought wo Imd smallpi x, they
shouted from tho houso tops (figur
atively, of course) that wo had forty
cases, and now we might got back
at them if wo so desired. We do
not know of any fight being on be
tween Independence and Dallas.
We had supposed that was ended
when an Independence traifor ap
peared, making it possible for
Dallas to go so far as to prevent
Independence once more getting
the upperhand so far as relates to
the county seat matter. As for the
implied threat that unless the West
Side puffs up Dallas it will not get
any business there we desire to say
that the West Side is a thorn to
some of the Dallas papers, hence
the unfriendly notice given it by
the Observer. Independence, as
ever, will continue to be the busi
ness center of Polk county, despite
its losing (through fraud) the coun
ty seat. We have the facilities and
do the business,

Few sessions of Congress haye
opened more quietly than that
which convened today. Advance
knowledge of the fact that adjourn
ment was to immediately follow
the opening in honor of tho late
Senators, Davis, ot Minnesota and
Gear, .of Iowa, served to lessen
attendance both on the floor ot the
House and Senate and in the gal
lerios and consequently to lessen
Interest in the short proceedings
Congressional Interest is strongly
centered in the Isthmian Canal
question. Kightly or wrongly, the
announcement that tho Canal Loin
mission had cut out of its report
its original recommendation in fa
vor of the Nicaragua route; and left
it to Congress to decide Mwoen
that and tho Panama route, from
tho facts and .figure presented, is
taken to have Wen brought about
by the shrewd work of the lobby
ists employed by the Panama Can
al Company, and to presage a fight
which may cause a scandal before
it is endj'd; the lobbyists aro also
credited with' pushinglforward tho
Ship Subsidy bil!r which is likely
to be the bitterest fought measure
of the session, for the purpose o
displacing the Nicaragua Cunii
bill, which by resolution adopted
by tho Senate at the last sesssiou
should bo taken up on Wednesday
ot this week. This last may havo
been partly the cause, but there are
other reasons why Senators will not
object to seeing tho Canal bill go
over for a while. Tho Hay-Paun

Red, and Secretary Hay has just
made a treaty with Nicaragua, giv
ing tho U. S. all the rights and
privcleges needed to construct the

porters of tho Nicaragua Canal bill
think that both of these treaties
should bo ratified before the Canal
bill is seriously taken up by tho
There is constant watchfulness on
the part of Senators to get better
seats for themselves. Applications
are often filed by Senators for the
desirable seats held by retiring
Senator" several years in advance
of the date of their retirement, and
for a Senator who has a good seat,
to get sick, is always a signal for
applications to be filed for his sent,
in case it should be vacated. Sen
ator Hanna, who has a less desir
able seat, filed a claim for the seat
occupied by tho lato Senator Davis,
about two years ago, and it is now

that the seat would come to him
through the death of Senator Davis,
The claim was filed because Senator
Davis had filed one for the seat of

is an enthusiast and an expert on
the subject of irrigation. He has
introduced a bill providing for the
construction of, reservoirs in the
arid sections of the west and for tho
lisposal of tho lands rcclauneJ
thereby under tho homestead law.
Ho thinks it an erroneous idea that
money spent in irrigation only
benefits tho state in which it is
spent. In bis own words: "W hat
benefits one state largely profits

THE BEST PRESCRIPTION IS
Grove's Tasteless. Chill Tonic.
The formula is plainly printed on every bottle hence you
know just what you are taking when you take Grove's. Imitators
do not advertise their formula knowing that you would not buy
their medicine if you knew what it contained. Grove's contains
Iron and Quinine put up in correct proportions and is in a Tasteless
form. The Iron acts as a tonic while, the Quinine drives the
malaria out of the system. Any reliable druggist will tell you that
Grove's is the Oriigsntssl arid that all other so-called Tasteless
Chill Tonics arc imitations. An analysis of other chill tonics shows
that Grove's is superior to all others in every respect.. You
are not experimenting when you " take Grove's its superiority
and excellence having long ; been established. Grove's is the
only Chill Cure sold throughout the ' entire " malarial sections of
tk$ United SuUi No Curcj No Pay, Price SQfc
