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 S-Lver is not dead is apparent to ewuy oner bat: tfiat - Rer progress saight eafeily be augmented 110 one mM- question- . ' 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 trickery. -, In other states the vote polled seems to have been light.- . I SxcJiange Clippings.

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 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."
