Talk About Railroads.
Albany, Or. , March 25. The
transaction recently reported in the
Oregonian whereby J. M. Tallman,
of Cedar Rapide, Is., aid S. E.
Wlghtman, of Watertown, S. D.,j
have gained possession bf 30,000
acres of land along the line of the
Corvallis & Eastern railroad near
Yequina Bay, is one of the most
mportant realty transactions that
has been consummated ioOregonfor
some time. The gentlemen who
made the purchase are representor
tives of a large colonisation scheme,
and have now returned to their
Eastern homes to report reading ss
to care for several hundred families.
Theee people are coming to Ore
gon to livs, and will populate one
of the richest and yet most neglect
ed portions of . the valley. Their
land will extend from the interior
through the Coast Range Mountains
to tide land on Yaquina Bay. It is
now a eparsely-tettled country, con
sisting of considerable grazing and
open land, fit for cultivation, and
many acres of land covered with
excellent timber ready for the' mTU.-
All this vast tract of land will
be cultivated and utilized by these
thrifty farmers who are coming
west to escape the rigors of winter
climate in Iowa and the' Dakota?.
When the stretch from Benton coun
ty to the coast along the line of the
Corvallis, & Eastern railroad is
thickly settled by the large number
of people who compose the propesad
colony, the region between albany
and toeoast will become one of
imparfaht agricultural and indus
trlol districts of the ttate.
In this connection, extension of
the Corvallis & Eaetern railroad in
to Eastern Oregon is a topic of dis
cussion iu Albany again. If settle
ment of the country contiguous to
the coast branch of the line makes
that end of the concern a paying in
vestment, will it not mean the es
tablishment of extensive colonies
aloDg the line of the road In East
ern Oregon, and the extension of
the road into that interior country,
is a qu stion that is being asked
Certain it is that Harriman peo
ple are interested in the colony in
Lincoln county in more or lets de
gree, and the hundreds of people
who are to form the colony are slat
ed to tome to Oregon over the Har
riman lines. Of course the inter
est of the Harriman people may ex
tend merely to getting the colonists
routedover their aces for the . bust
ness there is in it, but local opti
mists try to think there is more
than that in it.
They like to think it means that
Harriman is interested in the Cor
vallis & Eastern railroad, and now,
when the Oregon territory is the
objective point of great railroad op
erations, that Mr. Harriman has
become aroused to the situation and
is beginning the work of making
good in the Corvallis & Eastern
railroad territory.
Chicago, March 25. A dispatch
to the Record-Herald from Kansas
City, Mo., Bays:
"If a mau commits a crime so re
volting that it shocks, the morals of
the people just to hear about it
then that man can go scot fres."
That was the statement made by
Judge Wofford in the criminal court
yesterday. He had before him John
Martin Speyer, of New Oi leans,
twice convicted of murdering his
little boy and twice given a Dew
trial by the supreme court. Ang
ered at the action of the higher trib
unal be refused to try the cage
"I sat as judge twice in this case,"
be went 00. "Both times the su
preme court has seen fit to take a
different position from mine. I
will bave nothing more to do with
"I'll call in Judge John A. Rich,
of the circuit court of the Ffteenth
Judicial dristrict, to hear the case.
The trial will be set for June 28."
' Speyejr killed his 3-year-old boy
July 22, 19O2. The man was a per-
former with a street show. Speyer
was in a tent when officers arrested
him for attempting an assault on a
little girl. He asked for permission
to go into-bis tent a minute. The
officers allowed him to, and he
picked up a kcife and cut his liUle
son's throat from ear to ear before
thev could interfere.
That the leading medical writers and
teachers of all the several schools of
practice endorse and recommend, in the
strongest terms possible, each and every
ingredient entering into the composition
ot Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
tor the cure of weak stomach, dyspepsia,
catarrh of, stomach, "liver complaint,'
torpid liver, or biliousness, chronic bowel
affections, and all catarrhal diseases 01
whatever region, name or nature. It is
also a specific remedy for all such chronic
or long standing cases of catarrhal affec
tions and their resultants, as bronchial,
throat and lung diseases (except consump
tion) accompanied with severe coughs. It
is not so good for acute colds and coughs,
but for lingering, or chronic cases it is
especially efficacious in producing per
fect cures. It contains Black Cherry bark,
Golden Seal root, Bloodroot, Stone root.
Mandrake root and Queen's root all oi
which are highly praised as remedies for
all the above mentfoned affections by such
eminent medical writers and teachers as
Prof. Bartholow, of Jefferson Med. Col
lege: Prof. Hare, of the Univ. of Pa.:
Prof. Flnley Ellingwood, M. D., of Ben
nett Med. College, Chicago; Prof. John
King, M. D., late of Cincinnati ; Prof;
John M. Scudder. M. D.. late of Cincin
nati Prof. Edwin M. Hale, M. D., of

tcores of others equally eminent in their
'.- teveral schools of practice.
-The "Golden Medical Discovery " is the
only, medicine put up for sale through
druggists lor line purposes, tnat has an;
such professional endorsement wort
more than any number of ordinary testi-
, monials. Open publicity of its formula
on the bottle wrapper is the best possible
guaranty of its merits. A glance at this
Sublished formula will show that "Golden
ledical Discovery " contains no poison
ous or harmful agents and no alcohol
chemically pure, triple-refined glycerine
being used instead. Glycerine is entirely
unobjectionable and besides is a most
useful ingredient in the cure of all stom
ach, as well as bronchial, throat and luni
affections. There is the hiehest medlca
authority for its use in all such cases.

eric extract of native, medicinal . roots

Sunbury, Pa., March 24. Seven
people met death here this after
noon when the Philadelphia &
Raiding No. 5 ran into a farmer's
covered wagon at a grade crossing
near here. Only one in the wagon
escaped death.
The party were returning to their
homes in Rappoho township from
this , place. Washington Neidig,
who drove, did not ere the engine
which struck the wagon squarely
in the middle. Ths bodies wtre
carried along for several hundred
yards and were horribly mutilated.
Don't Starve or Diet, bat Use Hi-o na.
and Cure Your Stomach Troubles.
The average treatment of stomach trou
bles consists of a rigid diet list, which
often starves the patient. Of course it
would be foolish for any one wbo knows
that some foods are positively harmful
and poisonous to continue eating them,
even while following the Mi-o-na treat
ment, but in ordinary cases of stomach
troubles it is not necessary to starve or
diet if Mi-o-na is faithfully used, a tablet
before each meal.
This scientific remedy, for the cure of
stomach troubles, acts upon the whole
digestive system, and strengthens the or
gans so that they are able to digest any
food that is eaten without fear of distress.
If you suffer from loss of appetite, belch
ing of gases, sour taste in the mouth
furred tongue, severe pains in the region
ot the stomach, depression of spirits, bad
dreams, lack of energy, a stomach cough,
otteDsive breath, headaches, back aches
loss of strength and weight, you can be
assured that these troubles are all due to
iinpr-rfect digestion.
strengthen the stomach by taking
Mi-o-na tablet before each meal, and
soon you will gain in weight, strength
will return, and your food will give nour
ithment so that the rich red blood will
carry good health to every part of the

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten
Dollars Earned.
The average man Joes not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a few cents properly in
vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.

Misguided Effort on the Part of
Good Women Brings results
the Opposite of Those De
sired Other News.
Seattle, Wash., March 24. In an
addresB before the Knights of Co-,
lumbus, Chaplain John A.r Ferry,'
Tenth infantry, stationed at Port
Lawton, declared that the W. C. T.
U., in a misguided effort to abolish
the army canteen, is responsible for
much of the diunkeneas among the
troops. He declared not to exceed
2 per cent, of the enlisted men be
came intoxicated on pay day, and
added: - .
"But these faults, though small
compared with civic organizations,
would still be smaller if the army
were untrammeled by a certain well
meaning but overzealous civilian
society. I speak of the W. C. T.
Ui through whose efforts the anti-
canteen law was promulgated.
' "The abolition of the canteen has
been disastrous, and far from the
expectations of these good women.
So far-reaching has been the evil it
will be only a matter of a short
time when congress will give back
the canteen to the soldier boy. Al
ready steps are being taken among
officers to bring this about.
When the army had the canteen
only the beet of beer was sold. No
man was sold more than he could
reasonably contain.' If through aef

money paid came back in periodi
cal dividends to the companes.
There was not the strong attraction
to leave the post and miss call?, as
there is at present with theauti-can-tten
law in operation.
"The guardhouse had few occu
pants when the canteen was flour
ishing, and the town grogshops few
soldier habitues. The sooner the
canteen is given back to the soldier
the less cause the civilian will bave
to turn up his noEe at the enlisted
New York, March 24. The Rock
efeller fortune to which1 John DH
III will succeed is eetimated at
1,000,000,000. At simple interest
of 3 per cent., in 50 years the for
tune will have grown to $2,500,000,-

money-making traits ot his grand
father and merely go on compound
ing the fortune that will be his in
50 years, when he is much younger
then his grandfather is now, it will
amount to nearly $5,000,000,000.
This is twice the amount of the na
tional debt of the United States,
which latt year was $2,283 84

If the baby born today eo desires,
at the age of 50 years he might be
in a position to wipe out tbe na
tional debt of the United States and
still have a couple ot billion of dol

New York, March 17. John D
Rockefeller has resigned as a trus

Rome, March 24. J. P. Morgan
has fled from Italy in fear cf his
life. There was a plot to kill him.
He came to Rome to buy antiques
and woiks of art, but before he
could unpack his luggage he beard
rumors that sent him flying. Dur
ing the past three dayB the Roman
newspapers have been discussing
the precipitate flight of Mr. Morgan.
The chief of the -Roman police
meets the rumors-with-humor. He
says the plot to kill the American
financier was merely a ruse of jeal
ous antiquarians who wanted to
scare Morgan out ot Italy.
Never did a ruse work more suc
cessfully. Friends of Morgan say
that when he heard that his life
was in danger he gave way at once
to fear. His nerve? became raspy
