'seemed to be very sick. They were bound
aor the hospital at Vancouver, from tho
mouth of the Tanana, on the Yukon,
where they had been stationed for a year.
This regiment had seen service In Cuba
during tho liberation of that Island, and
the transition from extreme heat to ex
treme cold was not ucneflclal. The men
reported that some S00 members of the
Seventh are garrisoned at various points
along the Yukon above and below Ta

about the locality, but they were peace
able, and had never given any trouble,
so far as the soldiers saw. The boys
were gktd to reach civilization once more.
BtiuD bt Brother Eagles. The
funeral of Relnhard Braak, a pi eminent
saloon-keeper of this city, who was
drowned near Kalama somo time ago.
took place from Arion Hall, yesterday
xfternoon. The funeral services, which
were under the auspices of the Eagles
Society, were very Imoressive? H. 1L
Thompson, of Seattle, grand orator of
the Eagles, delivered the funeral oration.
The casket, containing the remains, -via
placed in the center of the hall, and was
surrounded by potted palms and beautiful
floral pieces. The friends and relatives
of the deceased occupied seats around
the remains, and the various societies or
'which the deceased was a member were
grouped about tho hall. The funeral
cortege was a very large one one of the
largest In the history of Portland. The
body was Interred In Lone Fir Cemetery.
Spilled His Blackberries. An elderly
man named Carr, who had been out a:
St. Johns picking blackberries yesterday,
got off an Upper Alblna car before wait
ing f 3r It to stop, as It was coming down
Williams avenue, near Eugene street,
about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He
waa pitched off to one side a distance
of 35 Xeet, striking on his forehead, while
his two gallons of blackberries scattered
In all directions. He was picked up
bleeding profusely from the abrasion on
Jils fcrehead, but fortunately was not
seriously hurt and was able to berate
the car men soundly, and threatened to
raise Cain with the company. Spectators
say that he was altogether too rash in
trying to alight from a street-car In mo
tion, as young men often get hurt in
attempting that feat.
Eap.lt Bathers. Many Portland boys
may be seen bathing In the cool waters
of the Willamette these days, though the
bare Idea of scampering along the river
bank In such cool weather, clad In their
scant "bathing suits," causes a shlvor
to run through the system of the adult
spectator. This Is the time of year for
bathing, however, the boys think, ana
they are going to be on time, whether
the weather clerk Is or not. The lads
build a fire on tho river bank wherever
practical and carry on their bathing and
scampering far into the night, regnrd
less of the curfew bell or the worrying
mothers at home. No drownings have
yet been reported this season, though
there have been various narrow es
capes. Grittt Father Saves His Bots
Xjfe. Paul Wesslnger, manager of Weln

of mind yesterday morning on Alder
street, between Fifth and Sixth, and his
coolness probably saved the life of his
con. He was driving a spirited horse,
which shied at a pile of earth thrown
from an excavation, and Mr. Wesslnger
was thrown out of the buggy. He hung
to the lines, however, though dragged on
his back the distance of a block, whKb
his son, who is about 13 years old, stayed
In the buggy. Bystanders succeeded in

In mining in. different localities of that
state. For the past seven months -Mr.
McCarthy has been employed In the Last
Chance mine, near Wardner. This Is la
the same vicinity as the Bunker Hill
mine, where occurred the late riots. The
men employed in the Last Chance were
not Implicated In the trouble at all. Thb
Last Chance Is a sliver and lead mine,
and Is classed among the rlcnest In Ida
ho. The tunnel runs back nearly a mile,
and It takes a good IS minutes to walk
from the entrance to the end walls.
About 10) men are employed In the mino
at present. The owners are contemplat
ing the building of a new tunnel to Gov
ernment Gulch, and this will necessitate
the taking on of a large force of miners.
The Bunker Hill tunnel runs directly un
derneath the tunnel of the Last Chance,
but at a considerable depth. Mr. Mc
Carthy says that Wardner, Burke and all
of the towns In the mining district of
Idaho, are very prosperous, and people
are constantly arriving from different
points, tending to swell the population of
the different towns. Wages, for miners,
are from J3 to J3 50 per day, with work
enoug"h for everybody. He will return to
the mines In several weeks.
Off for His Vacation. Dr. E. P. Hill,
of the First Presbyterian Church, will
leave on bis annual vacation today. Dr.
Hill will spend his vacation, which will
be of two months' Duration, at his cot
tage on the Columbia River, In Clark
County, Washington. It Is a very pic
turesque spot, situated near Columbia
Grove, about six miles above Vancouver.
The doctor will throw all cares off his
mind, and rusticate In the full sense of
the word. He has spent three vacations
in this place, but he says that he would
never grow tired of It. During his ab
sence the pulpit of the Church will bo
occupied by several good speakers. Rev.
.William Steole, of Goldendale, will have
charge during the first two weeks. Rev.
F. G. Strange, of Ashland, will preach
on the fourth and fifth Sundays, and
Rev. Dr. H. K. Walker, of Spokane,
will occupy the pulpit throughout the
month of August.

Baseball at Vancouver. The Colum

the Vancouver nine yesterday afternoon
by a score of 15to 7. The features of the
game wore the phenomenal hitting of
Jacobs and A. Parrott, the catching of
Brown, and the second-base work of
Stutt, of the Columbia; and the work
of Crawford at short stop, and Trlssler
behind the bat. for the Vancouver team.
Tho batteries were Brown and Ray for

many of the -excursionists enjoyed them
selves bathing In the surf. All of the
beach resorts are now" open, and there
waa plenty to eat and drink. The crowd
was of the most orderly kind, and there

DECKING IS ROTTING.
Front-Street Bridjre Again in, Bad
The deck of tho Front-street bridge
crossing Marquam Gulch, has long been
in bad condition, and in spite of fre
quent patching is becoming really danger
ous for teams or bicycles passing over
It. The planking Is old and rotten, and
occasionally holes appear In the deck
large enough to let a man fall through
to the ground GO feat below. No barri
cades or visible danger signals are kept
at either approach, and teams are being
evidently driven over the structure day
and night. Teamsters and wheelmen con
versant with the condition of the deck
can be cautious In passing ovor it, but
strangers and persons living at a dis
tance canot be expected to understand
At night the bridge is dimly lighted
by arc lights at both ends, the north
end light being totally obscured by a
large weeping willow in front of Detec
tive Barry's residence. Formerly an arc
light was suspended from tho middle of
the bridge but this was removed on ac
count of Its swinging causing the struc
ture to sway. In a high wind.
The bridge cannot be barricaded against
teams, as this would prevent the street
cars passing over it, and as the sub
structure has recently been strengthened,
there Is no danger except from the holes
constantly appearing In the deck. As
wheelmen are supposea to keep off the
sidewalk, there is considerable danger of

The Cottage in. Wich They Lived

The small one-story frame building on
Fifth street, between Xldar and Morrison,

structure stood, until a few days ago, on
Fifth street, between Morrison and Akler.
Three days ago It was torn down, and In
Its place Rev. Mr. Borics will erect a

Yesterday Mr. and Mrs. Borles celebra
ted tho 49th anniversary of their marriage,
at their present residence, SIS Morrison
street. Had the destruction of tho old
home been delayed a few days the mem
orable event would have been celebrated
there. But the progress of business com
pelled the vacation of the premises as a
place of residence. A large brick struc
ture had already gone up on the corner
to the south, and within the past few
weeks Honeyman, DeHart & Co. have
built an addition to the rear of their
Fourth-street establishment, whose brick
walls shut out the remaining bit of sun
light from the Bast. No other conditions
would have caused the family, especially
Mrs. Borles, to abandon the old home. It
seemed almost like committing a sacrilege
to hand the place over to be destroyed.
When Mrs. Borles goes down town now
she purposely avoids walking past the
old site, where some of the timbers are
yet unremoved by the workmen. Mr.
Borles gives this brief historical sketch:
The couple were married at Biechowitz.

NO TIME FOR CALAMITY.
Fourth of Jnly Oratory Has 0, Value
BALLSTON, Or., June 29. (To the Ed
itor.) The results of the Orogon election
have shown that pessimism as a working
lorce is a lauure. Hypnotic experiments
have shown tho immense power of con
centrated thought the Republican party
may oe saia to represent that groat soo
tlon of the American people whose
thought is expressed In the belief that
all Is going well with the country; which
ridicules the calamity howlar, and. In ef
fect, pins Its faith to the "power that
makes for righteousness." Tho Fourth of
July is upon us again, and some slight
sarcasm is customary at the expense of
the spread-eagle speeches common on
that occasion. But after all, these aro
the correct thing. The Individual or na
tion that does not believe In himself or
Itself Is paving the way for a passage to
th$ demnltlon bowwows. As a compari
son of the merits of the two great par
ties, let us ask how one of Mr. Bryan's
speeches would sound as a Fourth of
July oration? Yet, stripped of a few
partisan features, where is the Republi
can speech that would not sound fairly
well on our Nation's birthday anniver
sary? Its cheerful optimism would fa'l In line
with the prevailing feeling on that day.
And the world really needs optimism In
Its business. Why should a man whoso
blood. Is warm within creep Into the
Jaundice by being peevish?
The blue on our flag must have the
cheerful toning of the red and white of
active, healthy life In order that "Old
Glory" may do Itself proud. Far hotter
is It to point -with pride than to "view
with alarm. General Cass onde remark
ed that ever since he could remember
tho country had been going- through some
"crisls." But we have survived them all,
and shall do so In the future.
THE CHRISTIAN PATRIOT.
Sermon by Rev, Alexander Black
burn at First Baptist Church.
At the First Baptist Church, Alexander
Blackburn, D. D., pastor, took for his
text. Tltua 111:1, "Put them In mind to be
subject to principalities and powers, to
obey magistrates, to be ready to every
good work." He said In part:
"This la a part of the Instruction of a
man of very large experience to a young
man In whom he was very much Inter
ested. Among other things he Is careful
to show him his duty as a citizen.
"First The Christian is a citizen and.
Is always to recognize It. Any notion
that when a man becomes a Christian ho
is no longer to be Interested In the af
fairs of his country has no foundation in
cither scripture precept or example. God
revealed himself through a nation, and
his appeal Is continually to the spirit of
an exalted patriotism. Moses was a pa
triot and suffered for his people. What
more beautiful example of true patriotism
than can be seen In Daniel. All the hon
ors of tho foreign court could not quench
his love for his own land. To pray three
times a day was evidence of a firm loy
alty to his God; but to pray with his
windows open toward Jerusalem was
proof of loyalty to country. Christ seemed
to think first of his ownnatlon, for he
said, 'Go ye first to the lost sheep of the
house of Israel and he did not refuse
obedience to even the hated Roman pow
er, for he paid his tribute money by
tho only miracle that could be said to
have been wrought for himself. There Is
a type of piety that assumes to be so far
abovo the world that It does not care
for the condition about It men who
boast that they have no Interest In elec
tions, and piously refuse to enter Into
politics. I have no quarrel with such peo
ple, but for the lifting up of the world
they aro of.no value. The filled-out
Christian has three great loves, love to
God, love to home, and love to country,
and these In no way are rivals. Tho
stronger the one the stronger the others.
"Second Tho Christian patriot Is Intel
ligent as to his country and his times.
When David was about to assume his
kingship, there came to him from the
tribe of Issachar a company thus de
scribed, 'men that had understanding of
tho times, to know what Israel ought to
do; the heads of them were 200; and all
their brethren were at their command
ment' I Imagine that when David had
any hard place to fill, either In military
or civil affairs, he turned to this tribe.
Thore never was a time In the world
when It needed open-eyed Christian pa
triots more than now. Men who are up
to date in their conception of duty. The
world Is moving, what were once living
issues havo been settled, and new ones
are to be cared for. I havo a copy of
the speeches of Henry Ward Beechcr.

Diet the vll of slavflrv nnrl rlnfnnl tha
position of the Govornmont In preserving
the Union. As examples of patriotic elo
quence they are worth reading, but so
far as having value In guiding the actions
of today they are worthless. There Is
the problem of the relation of work and
wages, the problem of tha trust, the
problem of militarism, the problem of the
saloon. The Christian patriot cannot bo
Ignorant of these. On their Christian so
lution depends not only the prosperity of
the Church, but the very existence of
"I believe the time has come when tha
Christian man, whose rule Is to love his
neighbor as himself, must stand for the
principle that man's need, and not a ma
chine's power to produce, must fix th
pay of the laborer. As to the tru:
they may cut each other's throats,
If not. a way must bo found for th
! tectlon of the people from their
dlnate greed. And as for that old
the saloon, one tiling Is sure, we a
going to make much progress now.
time has come when Christians must stop
ngnting each other over the saloon, and
, unite to fight tho thing itself. President
Harrison was not so much a politician
as a statesman when ho said. We are
facing conditions, not theories.' I believe
the majority of the American people aro
opposed to the liquor traffic as repre
sented In the saloon, but the trouble Is In
the fact that tho forces are divided. The
children of this world are wiser In their
generation than the children of light.
They take what they can get, and then
press on to other fields. If I mistake
not, this is an opportune year to roll
up a large vote for National prohibition,
but It Is no time to stop there. There
are scopes of the smaller cities, and hun
dreds of towns and vUlages and country
townships that do not want saloons.
Shall wo not all unite In a vigorous cam
pafgn for local option, and thus redeem
half the land, not as a final result, but
as a stepping stone to the grand finale
for which we pray, 'a country without a
saloon in It.'
"Third The Christian patriot will be
ready to make sacrifice at the call of his
Civil and religious liberty for ourselves
aro worth the price of precious blood.
We all recognize this and praise tho men
who established and those who preserved
these things to us. But what about these
precious boons for others? In a strange
way we have been drawn Into the posK
tion of helpers to the liberation of the
world. To give liberty from material
slavery, thousands of the best men of
this country gave their precious lives.
There are millions In China today who
are In worse slavery than the. negroes
of the South ever knew. Other millions
in the islands that have come under our
flag aro perishing for the light. I know
certain sneering wits havo said. Tea, con
vert these heathens with rifles; shoot tha
gospel Into them.' There la more wit
than -wisdom In these sneers, but very
llttlo of either. The same men would
have said of Washington's army. Ton
aro shooting freedom Into the colonists,'
or of the Union army. 'You are shooting
liberty Into the slaves.' The simple fact
Is, God seems to be using our Govern
ment and other nations to break down
the powers of darkness and oppression
In the lands of the East. It Is for us
to be ready at our country's call.
"Fourth Tho Christian patriot will
make the most of himself for his country.
For the sake of a prepared citizenship our
public schools are supported at vast ex
pense; Tor the same sake the Institutions
or righteousness are protected. Tne times
call for the highest type of manhood at
the front, even Christian manhood. Oh
what would It mean to this country If
every young man In It should enter tho
now century a true Christian, a man
with loins girt with truth, with tho
breastplate of righteousness, with feet
shod as a messenger of peace, with the
helmet of salvation, with the shield of
faith, and with the sword of the Spirit.
Such a country would be Irresistible in
Its onward march, and invincible to any
