reorganizing the democratic party under
the gold standard banner and whether

make If an impotent factor In dictating
terms for the free silver forces lu ltXK).
In the event of the national democrats
getting control of the net convention
the populate and prohibitionists will be
the only national parties advocating free
coinage of silver. Again the populists
will never again give Bryan the support
they gave him one year ago until, at
least, he embraces more of the principles
of populism than free silver and opposi
tion to trusts and courts by Injunction.
The next nominee of the populist party
must be a believer In government owner
ship of railroads, telephones and tele
graphs, and must be in favor of the Initi

opjwse land monopolies. Another
Bewail episode will never again be toler

Mails to tub Klonbiks It appears
that out of six United Btates mails sent
into the Yukon from the head of Lynn
canal since July 6 last only two have
reached their destination, and that no
Canudlan mails have got through at all.
In view ol the fact that people are coming
and going constantly, this seems an ex
traordinary thing. We are told that
many persona who have been sent Into
the Yukon by people contemplating in
vestment there find themselves com
pletly at a standstill for lack of their cor
respondence and that the persons they
represent are equally at a loss to know
what to do. In addition to this there is
naturally yery much disappointment and
anxiety on the part of the families of the
people who are In the Yukon country,
due lo the failure of the inail-carrinrs to
get through with the letters in thier
charge. We think everyone will agree
with us In saying that this matter needs
lo be looked into at once. Men are coin
ing out from Dawson nearly everyday,
The only people who do not seem able to
coiiiii through are those who have a con
tract with the government to do so, The
poatal authorities ought to Iuvesllgat4
this and try to dlwover some means of
inducing the mall carriers to do what
they have undertaken to do.
Tiu IWidknt anu Cuba Th act
Ion of the administration In sending the
battleship Mains to Havana has added lo
the public confidence already so clearly
expressed In favor of President Mckin
ley's attitude on the Cuba question. His
course ever since he came to the While
House has been one which the public
has commended, beginning with steps
which resulted in the prompt reloase of
all American prisoners in Spanish pris
ons in Cuba, following with demand
upon the Bpanlsh government for a ces
sation of the cruelties in Cuba, resulting

CAssful them Is good reason to believe
that further action, equally satisfactory
to the people of the United State, will
lie taken by the President and his Cab
inet. And this fact Is leading a large
majority of the eole of the United
Stales, Irrespective of party, to a public
and vigorous condemnation of the course
of the democratic me niters of the house
of Representatives who have recently
Insisted upon an attempt to force Upon
the president a line of policy dillerent
from that which he has so successfully
punned up to tlilallme.
This Cumats or Oi ks Thus far, the
present wilder is probably about the
mildest on record says, the Oregonisn.
Ol course, "there ere others, " but per
sons who have lived here many years
cannot remember any w hich have been
so continuously and constantly mild as
this. Pussy willows are In bloom, which
does not mean tl at they have merely
puahed forth the velvety calkins which
give them their name, but that the bios-
mison these t-atkliis are fully exilcd.
Daffodil have pushed up leaves four or
five inches alove ground, and if the
weather continues as favorable as it
has been, will soon display their
yellow blossoms. Iluds are seen on rose
bushes everywhere, but a lack of sun
ahlne prevents them from developing in
to blossoms. There has been no cold to in
terfere with the growth of anything, and
rosebushes and other plants w hich have
been wrapped in bits of c-aret or pro
tected with hrUHh are uncomfortably
warm. It Is barely porwlble that old Bo
reas may make trouble yet before gentle
spring really assumes control, for an old,
very old, resident sierts that be has
often seen "six-weeks" sleighing In
Februsry, right here In Oregon, Of

A DirrsasNca or Oi-imoh. There are
two widely diverse opinions as to whet her
the lakes and sloughs on Sauyie's inland
will ever again be stocked with wapatoes.
One Is the opinion of certain sports
men who insist that the wapatoes
were buried by the sediment deposited
by consecutive floods in the Willamette
and Columbia, and who assert Uiata new
crop has started from seed carried by the
waters from patches of wapatoes which
had not been buried. These say that the
new crop will soon have fully-developed
tubers, and that the canvas backs will
presumably be coming back to their old
feed-grounds as numerously as ever.
The other Is the opinion of old settlers
on the island who Insist that the wspa
toes were destroyed by carp, with the ex
ceplion of a patch lime and there, the
seed from which has been scattered
around by high water and has started a
new crop. This crop, they maintain,
will soon be destoyed by the terrible
csrp, and that, thoy say, will be the end
of the wapatoes, and then good-bye to
canvas back ducks. The sportsmen
"know" they are right, as by digging
down through the deposit of dirt which
smothered tlie wapatoes the roots can be
found, while the old settlers eay that no
sncb roots are there. Time will tell
which Is right.
Denfnese Cannot be Cure
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseasod portions of the ear.
There 1b only one way to cure deafness,
and that Is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eu
stachian Tube. When this tube gets in
flamed you have a rumbling Bound or
imperfect hearing.and when it is entirely
closed deafness is the result, and unless
the intimation can be taken out and this
tube restored to Its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever: nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an infumed condi
tion of the mucous surfaces.

AI The t'ougregiillitiiul Church Lust
The concert given at the Congrega
tional church last Friday evening by
Mrs. K. F,. C'lisruiun srid Mr. C, V. Lat-
ouretle was a decided success, entertain
ingly speaking Financially wo are not
prepared iu render an opinion, only to
say the house was well filled, The solos,
duels and choruses rendered, together
wllh selec'lons ny the orchestra, were
all appreciated. Each separate number
posessed so much ol merit thai space will
not permit of special mention of each,
but the "Ladies' Tea" must not be over
looked when remembering I he esec!ally
interesting features of the evening, nor
would the program have been complete
without the piano solo by Mis Ora
Spangler, the vocal solo by Mil, W, B.
Wiggins, cello solo bv Mr. Burrhue and
the vocal solo by Miss Kate Ward.
The Halcyon chorus' "Old Folks at
Home." was charmingly rendered as
was also the selection by the ladies'
qunrtetlt. composed of Mrs. Csufleld,
Miss ward, Mrs. Charman and Miss
(Wei brothers' duet "Dusky
Maid ii," came in for good round of
applause as did the Lime Kiln quartette
composed i .f Messrs Itiuearson, Norrls
Hickman and Suryyhine.
During the entertainment one thing
wss demonstrated, and that was that
those who go upon the stage In Oregon
City should have an extra 'election in
reserve to eepoud to an encore. Oregon
City audiences appreciate merit.
DON'T TALK OF YOUR ILLS.

"Every one of na has bis and ber
own ailments," writes Edward W. Bok
iu The Ladies' Home Journal, decrying
the nupleasttul habit niuuy people have
of discussing their bodily ilia "It is
enough for us all to keep well ourselves
To be compelled to listen to the ail
ments of others does not uinke that tank
any easier. Besides all this, these uu
necessary narrative of personal ail
ments are positively Injurious to our
solve. Physicians all agree that many
of the slight illuussca, of which some
people make so much, could be cured if
they would but take their winds from
themselves. Too many people work
themselves into illnesses or prevent
themselves from getting well by talking
about petty ailment which, if forgot
ten, would right itself.
"I will uot say that women, more
than men, are proue to this evil, but
as the majority of women bave mora
leisure than the majority of nion they
are more likely to let their uiiuds dwell
npon every little ill that assails them
and talk about it It seems to me that
one of the most important lessons we
can all learn with tho close of the year
is to refrain from Inflicting upon others
what ia purely personal to ourselves.
Let us oease this tiresome, this incon
siderate, this unnecessary talk about our
ailments. Cold aud bard as it may
seem, tho fact is nevertheless true, and
will ever remain so, that the vast ma
jority of people are interested in what
is pleasant in our lives, but uot in what
la nupleasant. Pains aud sorrows ate
elumeuta iu our lives which are sacred
and interesting only to ourselves."

OF CLACKAMAS COUNTY
The factory towns of the East are noted
for affording the best market to the neigh
boring farmers and gardeners in proportion
to the population of any of the towns in
that section. The reason for this is that
the people of these towns have a fixed in
come upon which they can always depend,
and, as a consequence, they are liberal buy
ers, paying cash for all their purchases.
This is proven every day by the number
of farmers, who are to be seen on its streets
selling their produce, who, until just the
last few years, sought the markets of other
towns. The system of macadamized roads
that is being built into all parts of Clack
amas county, will enable all the people of
this county to share in the profitable mar
ket that Oregon City affords. If, as it is
sure to do, the demands of Oregon City in
crease in the next five years as it has in the
past five years, this city will rank next to
Portland as a market place for
of the Farmer
