Mr. Hyurlee lias for several years
been doiiu; tlic writiup, for the
Hood River News-Letter, one of
tile uio.st popular weeklies of the
stnto. Mainly through his efforts
this pajKir has built up 11 lnrge cir
culation nnd a liberal ndvertisiug
patronage. In identifying lilmnelf
with St. Johns we believe The Re
view and the Interests of the city
have profiled. The Review will
hereafter be published under the
firm name of Mnrkle & llyotlue.

Last Friday the Telegram print
ed a story to the effect that build
ing lumber was 0 per thousand
uhuaiur in San Piaucisco than it is
at the mills nlong the Willamette
where it is uinuiifuelutcd. If this
is actually thu ease, and the story
lias not been denied, what is the
matter of shipping a boat lo.nl of
the liuildiug material bnck from
San I'tuneisco? This looks like a
chance to make a lot of easy money.
It might be well for the council
and the couiMitiei seeking a gm
franchise in this city to give a
little publicity to their plans The
buucfiu aie Mtposed to lie mutual
butweeu the cnuMuy and the con

and pioper that he be unpiaiutcd

public a gus franchise means more
than one or two incmlci.s of the
council ititcictitiug themselves in
obtaining what a corHration de

county ro.nl are on Ivauhoc stievt
and Catliu to the liattou laim and

While It is really none of The
Review's business it would like to
see Cierk Taiich of the school board
tlrnw more Day for the work he
tiara for the district. It ha. only
recently conic to light that bis sal
ary is only 1 12.50 per month. The
school board voted him tr.i addi
tional $12.50, but his extreme
modesty won hi not permit him to
accept the extra wages. The work
done by the clerk is easily worth
double what he draws and it is
hoped that he will see fit to accept
the extra money.
Hugh O'Neill, the guerrilla who
reports the proceedings of the Hay
wood murder trial in Idaho for the
Denver Times and Portland Jour
nal says: "The lawyers and the
courts are still ridden by many an
tique practices that date buck to
the period of that crumblldg judi
cial relic called lliackstone." It is
a pity the lawyers in this trial,
and In many other trials, didn't
know n little more of lllackstone,
the greatest legal luminary of the
world, and less of that indefinable
something called the "Unwritten
l.nw," the modern shield for cranks
No action was taken by thocouu
oil in regard to the vacation of
Charleston street near the .Mnrim,
Iron Wot ks. Theie is a report to
the effect that when the iron con
cern purchased its site for 11 plant
the vacation of Charleston street
was promised by the former owners
of the tract, and that the plan to
grab several thousand dollars worth
of valuable water front Is only a
consummation of the ileal. If the
city can secure additional dockage
let it be done by an exchange of
pinpcily with the Marine Iron
works. If it cannot, let the iron
plant buy what it wants like the
rust of us have to.
In inaugurating thu lose fiesta
Portland has done herself pioud
ami has picked up a bit of adver
tising for herself that will be as
lasting as the hills. Not one east

tuuity to piove that they h and

A MONl'MKNTAI, ASS.
The pitiful libeling who pretends
to repoit the proceedings of the
Haywood dial for thu Poitlaud
journal should bo backed up against
.1 barn door and nailed there until
his toilette hung out like a side of
sole- leather. To the credit of the
OtcKouiati ami Telegram let it be
said that thev gave excellent 10
parts of Mr. Harrow's ceeli. Hut
that of the Join mil was simply a
one-sided ami vicious attack 011
Haywood's lawyer, woitlty only of
thu Molly Mnguirc who punned it.
Iluvwood mav bo guilty of the
crime- clnuge-d against him, an. I if
that is pun en he should hang as
high as Hainan Hut every liberty
loving American wants to see him
have a fan ttial, wants to see thu
sK'eches of the lawyers ou both
sides of thu ease fairly reported.
Hut it is impossible for the general
reader to form any idea of the
guilt or innocence of the accused
sti long as the patwrs send out such
brutal and bitter tirades against
cvervbodv who is disposed to see
that thesi- uu-n gut an impartial
trial. The contemptible flunkey
who wtites the Journal's rejunts
is utterly incapable of rising above
the gutter-snipe style of journalism
and we ate stttpiiseil that a paper
which is constantly rebuking its
contemporaries tor unfairness should
send forth to the world such lying
and disgustingly unfair rubbish,
miscalled rejKirts, as appear in its
columns. We are very much in
clined to believe that honest minded
wot king men of thu country will
not stand this kind of journalism
much lougei .
Just witness thu conceit of this
luted hteiwry mountebank. A few
days ago he hail the presumption
to criticize the immortal Hlackstone,
and later on he undertook to tell
Mr. Riehatdsou how he should con
duct the defense! And now that
the monumental ass discovers thut
his advice was not followed he

AN EMERGENCY SPEECH.
It 8oothJ the Indlani and Probably
Saved General Qalnot.
People often gny very funny
things In tiruc3 of emergency. It
was fortunate for tho general whoso
conciliatory eiTorts nre described in
Mrc. Jefferson Davis' life of her
husband, that tho Indians with
whom the men were dealing had no
great sense of humor. Lieutenant
Davis, then on the start of General
Gaines, had accompanied his supe

chiefs of tho Sue nation.

warriors, decked with war paint and
feathers, sat scowling and silent,
their orni3 slacked near by. Seated
with them was a dark old woman,
shrunken to n mero skcloton,

herself with great majesty of mien.
Tho general began tho council in
n hesllutlng manner. IIo explained
that it was necessary for tho Indians
to move on, for tho whlto man must

squaw bccanio grcally excited and
began speaking with vehemence.
Sho declared that tho Sacs must dio

general showed considerable irrita

not expected to intorforo between
the a whito and Indian braves.

It was plain Hint trouble was nt

to command silence.
