Last Monday was proclaimed a
General holiday by Governor Ro
gers in honor of the returning of
the Oregon Volunteers. .
- The Norwegian eteamship Cuern-
gey sailed from Portland last week
with 3,430,653 feet of Oregon lum
ber as her cargo, and was dis
patched by the Pacific Export
Lumber Company. .-
The latest reports from the
Transvaal states that the English
had been victorious in an engage'
ment at Ladysmith, and in addi-
tion to the Boers killed had taken
two thousand prisoners.
Snmpter is enjoying a "heap
big" boom these days. Mines and
real estate are changing hands at
fabuluous prices, and building op
erations on an extensive scale is
the general order of the dajr. ,
Keports from (Jape JNome are
about equally divided between the
subjects of gold and typhoid fever.
There seems to be quite . a large
amount of both there at the present
time. It is said that two thousand
men will leave the Klondike next
Spring for the gold fields -of Cape
Nome. - " " . ...
' The expression of the Oregonian
that Admiral Dewey belittles- him
self by getting married so late. in
life will hardly nnu general re
sponse. Although sixty-two years
of age Admiral Dewey is hale and
hearty, and . bids fair to live and
enjoy life for twenty or twenty-five
years to come, and it is not : even
regrettable he should seek a suit
able companion with which to pass
his remaining years be they few or
many. " ' " '
Many Democratic papers and
leaders throughout the country are
strongly supporting the adminis
tration in its . Philippine policy
And why should they not? There
is- not one good reason for differing
trpwv this question at the present
time- while there are many and po
tent reasons why all should unite
in upholding the honor and integ
rity of our country.- A" determined
and united movement all along the
linc-at home and abroad will
have a tendency to speedily settle
the affair, and settle it right.
The Transvaal war' is proving to
be something more than a skirmish.
There are fighters on both sides
and the reports- from the field of
hostilities indicate that each ad
vancing step attempted by the Bri
tons is stubbornly met by the fol-
fowers of Oom Paul, who appear to
be not only well equipped for war
but also intelligent and brave fight
ers. - It is not within our province
to say which side has the most of
justice possibly both have reason
for taking the stand they, hold
but we must say that it is highly
regrettable, that their differences
could not have been adjusted with
out the- great loss of . life that has
token place and which will yet re
ault before the conflict ends..
No great progress was ever yet
made in a town where the people
were divided, or in which all efforts
were for keeping back advancement.
It requires a united and aggressive
' people to make a - town grow, no
matter, how great may be its nautr
al" advantages- That Hood River
Valley has nmny and. decided na
tural advantages in the way of lo
cation, soil, water, timber, trans
portation facilities, and climate un
paralleled5, no one can question",
and there can be no justifiable rea
son why our town, should not grow
to three times its- present siase during-
frre'next faur or five years. A
personal grievance should never be
allowed, to stand in- the way of pub
lic enterprise and mutual advance
ment.. All should work , as much
in harmony' as possible on every
question that has for its funda
mental principle the betteument evf
thetown, socially-,, morally or fi
nancially.. A live, up-to-date and
vwgMeHeive-.people are" -not usually
fcmnd; in a dead town. That Hood

Tim state elections:
. Up to the hour of going to press
it has been impossible for the Sun
to obtain ' any authentic reports
from the election in the different
states, though the indications .are
that it has been - a republican vic
tory all along the line. Ohio has
undoubtedly gone republican by an
overwhelming majority. In" Ne
braska, where the. opposition ' has
made a desperate : 'fight, the" vote
promises to be close with chances
good for the republicans. New
York .is claimed . by Crocker, but
the returns, sometimes change such
early boasting. Kentucky has her
usual amount of excitement and
from-several points come reports of
-, In other states the vote polled
seems to have been light.- .

The effect of spraying apple orchards
and giving them proper care is shown
by the result obtained by S. A. Sears,
of Hood Eiver. He has a small orchard
which he sprayed several times during
the season and has harvested therefrom
600 boxes of apples for which he has al
ready been offered $1.50 per box. In his
fruit there is not two per cent of the
apples. that are wormy, while his neigh
bors who have given their orchards less
care find from 40 to 50 per cent of their
apples unmarketable because of the fact
they are full of worms. The Dalles

Died.: On Monday morning-, Nov.. 6, at
4 :30 o'clock Lucy, beloved wife of Mr.
C. A. Bell, aged 18- years, 10 months
. and 15 days. .
The people of Hood Eiver were deeply
grieved on Monday morning last to learn
that in the early hours of the morning
the death angel had entered the home
of Mr. C. A; Bell, of . Mt. Hood Hotel,
and taken his wife, who, only at few
brief days before was about, and appar
ently in her usual good health.': The
lady Was ill but four days, but though
careful and skilled attention was given
her by physicians' and friends, it was
impossible to save her life, an attack of
pneumonia, complicated with septi
caemia, having caused her death, -
: Deceased was formerly Miss Lucy
Ellison,, and had been a resident of Hood
Eiver for nearly half of her life. Her
mother, two sisters and three brothers,
are left to mourn her early death, ' and
they, together with the sorrowing hus
band, have the heartfelt sympathy of
the entire community of Hood Eiver
valley ia their sad affliction.
' The funeral took place from her late
h&me at Mt. Hood hotel- on Tuesday
afternoon-at two- o'oloek, tRe- services
being conducted by Eev. Hershner. A
large number of friends attended, many
of whom followed her remains as they
were carried to the LO. O. F. cemetery
and there sadly laid, at rest-- Many
beautiful floral tributes were laid-on her
casket, and the grave ' was also strewn
with flowers from the hands of sorrow
ing relatives and sympathizing friends.

Hisrh Water Advertising- Mark.
The New Tork HeraFd ol Arrfl 17 printed aa
editorial otatement that on the previous day
(Sunday, April 10) ita paid advertising reached
the high water mark In that Journal's history.
" The Ohicag-o Tribune " on that same day, last
Sunday, April 10, printed: not only more adver
tising than the New York Herald, but what Is
believed to be the greatest amount ever printed
in a single issue of any regular main edition of
a newspaper. Leaving out of account the twenty-two
columns of advertising printed by the
New York Herald on that day In the special1 sec
tion v devoted to the Interests of Brooklyn and
New Jersey and appearing only In those editions,
the record of The Tribune ' for April 16 sur
passed' that of the Herald for the same day by
more than 10,000 agate lines of paid advertising.
Even allowing, the- Herald all ft claims. Includ
ing Its Brooklyn and New Jersey supplements,
the New York Herald on that day still fell short
of ' The Tribune " by more than 1,000 knea in
the actual amount of paid advertising.
The exact figures are given as followsr The
New York Herald of April 16 printed in Its main
edition, exclusive of its Brooklyn and New Jer
sey supplements, 77,823 agate lines of advertise
ments. Including those supplements rt claims
8,7C0. "The Chicago Tribune" printed that
day 88,4150 agate lines of paid advertisements.
The comparison should be made in lines of agate
measure, because the columns of ' The Trib
une " are longer and contain- 305 agate lines,
while those of the New York Herald contain only
288 Hnes of agate each.
For the four Sundays ending April 16; the
number of columns of advertisements in the New
York Hsrald, according to ita own claims and
Including its Brooklyn and New Jersey special
section. wasl,M67.25. In the same period of time
The Tribune " printed 1,084.43 columns of ac
tual' paid advertisements. These; reduced to
agate- lines, give the New York Herald 307,S(i8
Unas and The THbune " 830;7ffr line In " The
Trlbime there were printed in -that period
23,383 more agate lines than In the New York
Herald. This excess was equal to eighty-one
columns of the size of those of the New York
Herald. Therefore the New York Herald printed
an average of 20.25 columns less each Sunday
than The Chicago Tribune."
