Ex-Pbesidekt Harbison'i estate was
worth $380,000. His life was infured
for $40,000 in four different companies.
Is the meantime the Willamette valley
is beginning to blossom like onto the
Garden of Eden and the song birds look
on with delight.
Woild it not be well lor the people of
Oregon City to ananw some con cine
statement of the rare resources of this
favored clime to that the Willamette
valley may be properly advertised at the
Those of os who think our troubles are
vast and overwhelming, have bat to
comprehend the woes of Mark Hanna.
Exultant in his imperious power, the
lordly Mark could not pass the ship sab
sidy bill. This is misery indeed.
Botha, the Boer general, is accused of
being crazy because be will not listen to
England's terms of peace. It will be re
called that a gentleman named George
Washington was also accused of being
weak minded for not accepting the terms
of peace proposed by the same power
only a few years ago.
axdrew Carnegie was once a poor
boy and worked bard enough to lay np a
great many millions of dollars. His
hardest job lies ahead of him however,
for he is now struggling to become a pxr
mm, and do his best, he cannot give
awav any more than one tenth of his in
come. Nobody can say that Andrew has
not been continually looking for trouble.
The anthracite coal miners of Penn
sylvania are evidently running mad with
a little brief authority. Just as the presi
dential election was coming on they de
cided to strike. Mark Hanna waved bis
talinmanic wand and the strike was set
tled. Now another strike is brewing,
but Mr. Htinna's wand will not be in
service this time, and the result is there
fore in doubt.
Tub train load of Chicago business
men who came to Portland, were shown
the rocks and rills of the Columbia
river valley. They missed the Wil
lamette garden farms. They will go
back home with a pretty good idea of
how a rugged mountain looks oat
lined against the sky, but with no
knowledge of the productive qualities of
Is spite of the fact that the worthy
state of Oregon has no visible means of
advertising itself throughout the East, a
goodly number of homeseekers are
wandering into the great Willamette
valley and buying farmB. Scarcely a
day passes that some farm is not sold to
an Eastern man, and strangers are ar
riving on every train to look the country
over. It behooves every man to treat
the strangers well on their arrival.
Mrs. Carrie Nation has fallen out
with her publisher, whojs a negro. Her
newspaper, called "The Smasher's Mail,"
was coming out with a hot roast on the
judue who heard the evidence that re
sulted in the conviction of Mrs. Nation
for joint smashing. The negro refused!
to allow the ariioU W appear in print,
whereupon Carrie dissolved partnership
with him. KnM hn pnxlured some

fold fields just at this time. It was
exported by tho who have kept close
watch of the trend of events In the past,
that somebody would find gold either in
Siberia or near the North Pole. Thus
far there has boen no new discovery to
which the tourists might go and yet
there is time to spring a sensation before
the opening of navigation in the North
CofST Bom de Castellan has dis
tingnished himself by shooting the editor
of the Paris Figaro in the leg. The count
is not so slow? When he was accused of
squandering Anna Gould's money, he
said : "Have I not kept my contract with
this woman? I agreed to give her my
title for a money consideration. I did
as I agreed and now I shall insist on the
performance of the term of the con
tract." The count is not as big a fool as
he might be.
Ir Oregon City really wants to pro
mote its own interests, there is an
opportunity at hand in the founding of
condensed milk factory for the purpose j
of canning milk and cream for the1
Oriental trade. The canned milk
at present comae principally j
from Illinois and Iowa, paying
ing heavy railroad tariff. This is some
thing for the Board of Trade to consider,
so that an otfer can be made to practical
condensed milk men in the East.
Stkakii a it may seem there are
those who are actually attempting to
prove that El wood Minchin, the youth
ful orator, did not appropriate the words
of a noted writer and call them bis own.
The argument is also made that be bad
'perfect right to take a few words"
bat not too many. Such wisdom as ap
peared in the oration doea not usually
proceed from the months of babes.
This one deduction of fact ought to
be a guide for the judges in pronouncing
the oration a dangerous counterfeit.
Farm ibs of the Willamette valley are
confronted with serious loss to their
flocks of sheep. It has been estimated
tiat fully one third of the sheep have
died within the last four months. Some
judges even say that one half the sheep
hive perished from the inroads of the i
leech. Up to the present time no sue
cessful remedy has been discovered after
the eheep have been attacked. The
sheep get the leeches from feeding on
the bottom lands. They are taken in
ternally and attack the liver of the ani
mal. SEATTLE'S WIDE FAME.
The Central Labor Union, of Seattle,
has been forced to send out notices,
warning all laboring men to stay away
from Seattle. The fact is made apparent
that Seattle has sown the wind and is
now reaping the whirlwind. While there
is such a thing as business integrity in
most communities, Seattle has never
been able to thoroughly comprehend the
term. To the average citizen of Seattle,
everything is fair that results in obtain
ing money from passing stranders. The
town has do factories for the employ
ment of labor, and yet working men go
there with the expectation of finding
something to do. It is a cane of fleecing
every man, woman or child, who is un
fortunate enough to land in the town.
But the fame of Seattle is spreading, as
the following extract from the Chicago
Chronicle will show. The Chronicle
"The cities of Seattle and Tacoma
have resumed their warfare over the
proper designation of the mountain peak
which dominates both cities. Seattle in
sists on "Rainier," while Tacoma, as is
quite natural, is steadfast for "Tacoma."
The row is a chronic one, and breaks out
when the denizens ot the two towns take
a brief vacation from their ordinary and
customary occupation of robbing Eastern
people who are foolish enough to trust
themselves in the Puget Sound country.
The natives of Sumatra once had the
reputation of being the most expert
thieves and swindlers on the face of the
earth, but the Bumatran who should land
in Seattle, would find himself dead broke
and naked half an hour after his arrival."
CACHES OF DIVOKCE.
When Judge McBride opens court on
the morning of April 15, lie will find a big
divorce docket in Clackamas county.
An Ohio judge, who had been hearing
divorces for most of his term, said :
"Two-thirds of the diyorce cases that
come before me are due to early mar

riages. I believe that the same would
hold true in all divorce courts. Young
people marry before they are old enough
to form sensible views on matrimony or
on the character of thoee they marry.
There hare been young wives here weep
ing for divorcee who must have been so
young at tl time they were married
that spanking would have been more ap-
propriate. Young men are as great fools
as young women.
"There is another class of ieoliah mar
riages in which matrimony is contracted
before the parties have been acquainted
lung enough to know each other thor-
oughly. These hasty and unfortunate
marriages are usually contracted by very
young persons, so that it comes hack to
the same proposition of too early mar
riage. When the injudiciou marriage
has been made there is nothing left but
a life of misery for each of the parties to
it or the divorce court, and so the divorce
record keeps growing. It is shameful,
and the lessons of the divorce court
ought to teach young peoplo who are in
a hurry to get married to go slow."

Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Washita, I. T. He writes: "Four
bottles of Electric Bitters has cured Mrs.
Brewer of scrofula, which had caused her
great suffering for years. Terrible sores
would break out on her head and face,
and the beat doctors could give no help;
but her cure is complete and her health
is excellent." This shows what thou
sands have proved, that Electric Bitters
is the best blood purifier known. It's
the supreme remedy for eczema, tetter
salt rheum, ulcers, boils and running
sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys and
bowels, expels poisons helps digestion
builds up the strength. Only 60 cents.

William Uoblnsoii, the well known
merchant has returned from a trip to
New Yoik which consumed an entire
month. Speaking of his Journey and
the Impressions he received, Mr, Kubln

than he ran poasihly gel in this country,
and Is therefor perfectly Mtlslled."

and everything la hitch-handed outlawry.
Mayor Harrison is running for ollice
a.-sin and the motto of the campaign is:
'The Streets are Free to Everybody,
Special Privilege to None" This means
that if the gamblers and other lough
people will help In the election they can
go ahead with their Immorality. Mayor
Harrison is opposed by a moral party
that will never know it had anything to
do with the campaign when the votes
are counted. There is a great chance (n
