Tut advantage of Portland as a grain

Wheat of Eastern Oregon and Washing

heavy grain brokers and shippers recog

As the grain crop is threshed it is
found that the percentage of spoiled
grain is much smaller than was at first
aupposed. The ideal weather for har
vesting the hop crop has secured it in
llae shape and the yield per acre is one
of the largest ever harvested although
the area is not so large as some former
The man from"the land of blizzards and
wheat" considers the source of the per
sonal attacks upon him in the last issue
of the Courier-Herald and deems them
unworthy of notice, notwithstanding Mr.
Cheney's cheerful statement "I will
give Maw h I as Porter will be back
next week and he (Maw) cannot retali
ate." That is a very sickly whine the
Courier-Herald puts np when it is called
np for making false statements by the
chairman of the general reception com
mittee. The article was circulated in
the proper paper and the way the editor
of the Courier-Herald tries to wiggle out
of his original statements would make
biro the laughing stock of the street if
any one paid any attention to him.

BoLHKa Cochkan offered to bold a

that he has met his match snd then

timber reserve for timber outside. The
claim beinti that the timber 1 lost or
Uken on both pieces. The government
gets the reserve entire by this process
and thereby given an advantage it would
not otherwise have. A great deal of

Wukx it is realized that one-fourth of
Portland's trade ia with the Orient we
begin to comprehend w hat the retention
of the Philippine means to us in a
commercial way. The commerce of
Portland represent half the state and
it is largely products that the farmers
and laborers are interested in. This has
only commenced and every effort should
be made to enlarge it. The retention of
these islands is the first step. We will
then be at the door of China where our
trade is growing rapidly. The possibili
ties in the Orient fur trade to Oregon is
such that no mistake can be afforded.

without any positive owncmhlp. But
for Marcus Whitman It would havt
been loat to the I'nloB.
It was In 13(1 that Dr. Whitman and
a man by the name of Spatildlng. with
their young wlvea. tli first white wo
men that ever rroed the Hx-ky
mountains, entered the valley of the
Columbia and founded a mixtion of the

EnglUh were already apprlied of this

In the fall of 1HI2 It looked as If
there would bo a great lupoiirlug of

nearly starred, and once he rame very
near to losing his life. He kept
pushing right on. and at the end of live
terrible mouths he reached Washing

strangely picturesque figure, chid en
tirely In buckskin and fur, a typical
man of the pralrlea. He asked audience
of President Tyler and Secretary of
State Webster, and It was accorded,
him. All clad a he was, with his
frozen limb. Just In from his 4.'KK)
mile rldo, Whitman appeared before
the two great men to ptuaU far Ortgini.
Ilia statement wa a revelation to
the administration. Previous to Whit
man' visit It was the general Idea In
congress that Oregon was a barren,
worthies country, fit only for will
beast and wild men. Ho openml tho
eyes of the government to the limit
less wealth and splendid resources of
that western territory. He told them
of It great river and fertile valley
It mountains covered with forests and
It mines tilled with precious treas

country worth keeping ami that It
must not fall Into tho bands of the
English. He spoke a a muu Inspired,
and hi words were heeded.
