TO DOUBLE APPROPRIATION.
$10,000 Asked for Lnnnch for Colum
bia River Customs Service.
ASTORIA. Dec Z-Notice has been re
ceived from the Secretary of the Treas
ury that Congress has been asked to ap
propriate J50CO more for building a launch
for the use of the customs service at
the mouth of the Columbia Rive-. The
first appropriation made for this purpes
was $2500. That was later Increased to
$5000, and bids on building the launch
were asked. The department was not
satisfied with the specifications subm'tted
and rejected all the bids. The class of
boat wanted by the department cannot
be built for $5000, so an additional ap
propriation is being asked for.
Courts Decide City Election Problem.
A writ of peremptory mandamus was
Issued today by Judge McBrlde on the
petition of D. H. Welch, directing City
Auditor Nelson to place Mr. Welch's
name on the official ballot for the elec
tion next Wednesday as a candidate for
Police Commissioner. This order in no
way affects the controversy over filling
the vacancy that existed on the Police
Commission, the court simply holding
that Mr. Welch is entitled. to have his
name on the ballots, without reference as
to whether the election of a Police Com
missioner would be legal or not. Under
the law a blank line must be left on
the ballots below the list of candidates
for any office, and as Mr. Welch's name
is to appear on the ballots a movement
is on foot to have voters who desire Mr.
Moen retained as Commissioner write
the name of G. O. Moen on their ballots
directly under that of Mr. Welch The
friends of Mr. Moen assert that there Is
no question but what the Supreme Court
would rule that he is entitled to hold the
position under his appointment until Jan
uary, 19M. and that under the city char
ter an election at this time Is illegal,
but say that should Mr. Moen receive
more votes at the coming election than
his competitor it will put a stop to all
chances of an expensive controversy in
risking Boats for Alaska.
About 40 fishing boats are being con
structed by the various boatbullders In
Astoria this Winter. The greater portion
of them are for canneries In Alaska.

SECOND OREGON fliGS
FAMOUS BATTLE COLORS ADORX
"WALLS OF STATEHOUSE.
Few Visitors to Capitol Bnilding
Fail to Bare Their Heads on Catch
ing Glimpse of Banners.
SALEM, Dec 7. The three flags which
were carried by the Second Regiment,
Oregon Volunteers, while In service in
the Philippines, have been adjusted en
the wall of the Governor's office, dlrect'y
across the room from the main entrance.
One of the flagstaffs stands erect while
the other two Incline toward it irom
either side, the tips coming almost to
gether. The flags thus displayed make a
very neat appearance, and Immediately
catch the eye of every person who en
ters the room. As the banners hang di
rectly over a steam radiator, they are
kept In a constant gentle motion by the
upward current of air. This also adds to
the effect of the display. While them
are many who enter the public offices at
the Capitol with removing their hats,
there are few who fall to uncover their
heads when they open the door of the
Governor's office and catch sight of the
banners which led the brave Second Ore
gon boys n their glorious battles with
their country's enemies.
The Governor is having a glass case
made for the flags. This is necessary In
order to preserve them.

extinguished and the wet season sets In,
the force of forest rangers and fire war
dens Is gTeatly reduced In reserves, par
ticularly In the North and West. In the
case ot Oregon. Washington and Idaho,
where there are extensive rainfalls, which
greatly reduce the chances for a fire of
dangerous proportions, there is, through
out the Winter, little necessity for main
taining a large forestry force, and many
of the Bummer employes are dropped dur
ing the Winter months. Over In the
Black Hills reserve of Montana an ex
ception is made, for in that reserve are
located many large mines, which are
worked the year around, and It is neces
sary to have a large forestry force on
duty there, hoth to prevent fires from
the camps, and also to prevent the un
lawful -uttlng of timber within the re
serve, That, however. Is the only excep
tion noted in the Northwest,
Commissioner Hermann, of the General
Land Office. In speaking of this matter,
said that the reductions made this Fall
were what have been made year after
year, and were not because of any lack
of funds for sustaining a forestry force,
but merely for the reasons as .stated
above. He ays further, that If the ap
propriation for forest protection .were
twice what It Is now there would be no
more occasion for maintaining a larger
force throughout the Winter tfian is now
employed, and reductions would continue
to be made on lines heretofore laid down.

"A Good Beginning Makes
.a Bad Ending."
That saying seems to have been born
of the superstition deep-rooted in hu
manity. It is akin to that other saying
"He laughs best who laughs last." Per
haps in these and similar sayings there
Is a. survival of the old pagan- belief that
a display of happiness was likely to in
cur the envy of the gods and to draw
down the visitation ot the malice which
Is twin to envy.
It would be a ridiculous proposition to
affirm that bad is the necessary outcome
of good. But Just -as many a day which
begins with a cloudless sky ends in storm,
so many an event In life which promises
only happiness ends In disappointment
This Is very true of marriage. The
young wife goes heart and soul into
homeraaklng and housekeeping. She
loves to cook and prepare the dainties
her husband enjoys. She Is so robust
and hearty that she can hardly rind
enough to do to exhaust her .abundant
energy. That's the way It begins. After
a while she finds that it taketh all her
strength to care for her home. Then
household cares begin to overtax her.
and she drops down Into a chair .many a
time and gives way to tears because of
her weakness and misery. The sky so
cloudless on the mornjng of marriage
has soon become overcast
THE CRITICAL TIME
In many a woman's life comes Just at
this period of discouragement and de
spair. She finds indications of disease
of the delicate womanly organs. Her
women friends perhaps tell her that the
bearing-down sensation, the pains in the
back and loins Indicate disease or dis
placement She consults physicians,
takes prescribed treatments, all to no
avail. And yet this tv Oman's case is
curable on the evidence of women who
have been cured.
"Four years ago my health began to
fall," writes Mrs. Nellie M. Reycraft, of
Glenwood, Washington County, Or. "I
had a heavy dragging and weight In the
region of the uterus, pain In back and
loins, could not lift anything heavy, rest
at night very poor; stomach deranged.
One physician said I was overworked.
Another Bald I had congestion and
falling of uterus. He treated me nine
months and said I would not be well
until I had passed the change of life.
I was only 27 years old then. I became
discouraged, and began using Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. Took a teaspoon
ful three times a day; began feeling bet
ter right away. Am using my third bot
tle now. and feel I am In good health.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has
restored me to health. If suffering wom
en would give It a fair trial they would
give It praise."
It can truthfully be said that there is
hardly a form of womanly disease medi
cally curable which will not jield to the
faithful use of "Favorite Prescription."
More than this. It is a matter of record
that many forms of womanly disease pro
nounced Incurable by local physicians

TOD SLOAN NOT WORRIED.
Still Hopes io Get a License in
CHICAGO, Dec. 7. Tod Sloan, accom
panied by a retinue of servants, arrived
from New York this afternoon and whs
driven to the Auditorium Annex. Sloan
professed to worry little over Thursday's
reported action of the English racing
stewards, declaring that he would be
persona non grata if he applied for a
Jockey's license next .season. He de
clares that he yet expects to ride in
England. Falling in this, he will return
to his humble starting place In America,
or perchance try his fortunes In France.
Sloan will remain In the city until next
Tuesday, when he will pay a day's visit
to his old home at Kokomo, Ind., re
turning in time for the Gans-McGovern
fight next Thursday night, proceeding to
the Pacific Coast where he hopes to ac
cept a few mounts. In regard to the an
nouncement in the ..Racing Calendar,
"Naturally, It Is a subject upon which
I care to say little. I have not been

license I am to be refused. I must wait

Sector Wnllcer, 132 7ix St. .Cormer Alder, Portland, Or,
cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorlta
It is worth noting that these cures
are lasting. Many medicines offered fo'
women's use are mere palliatives. They
numb the nerves and so dull the pain.
But they do not re-establish the lost
.womanly health. "Favorite Prescription"
Is a purely vegetable preparation. It con
tains no alcohol, neither opium, cocaine
or any other narcotic. It cannot disagree
with the weakest constitution. It es
tablishes regularity, dries the drains
which weaken women, heals inflammation
and ulceration and cures female weak
ness. IT IS WOMAN'S WAY
to sacrifice herself for her family- She
goes without the new dress that husband
or child may have-soma coveted pleasure.
And for economy's sake she often bears
the Ills which are undermining her
health. It Is false economy. The health
of the wife and mother is the most Im
portant factor in the home life, and
-every suffering woman who has been
cured by "Favcrlte Prescription" Is a wit
ness to the real economy of this means
"My health Is the best now that It hag
been for four years." writes Mrs. Phebo
Morris, of Ira, Cayuga County, N. T., box
52. "I have taken but two bottles ot
your medicine. 'Favorite Prescription,'
and 'Golden Medical Discovery.' These
medicines have done me more good than
I all tnat I have ever taken before. I
couldn't do my work only about half the
time, and now I can work all the time
for a family of four. Before I took your
medicines I was sick In bed nearly half
the time. My advice to all who are
troubled with female weakness is to take
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription and
'Golden Medical DLscovery'the most
wonderful medicines in the world."
Sick women are invited to consult Dr.
Pierce by letter, free. All letters are held
in sacred confidence and womanly confi
dences are guarded by strict professional
privacy. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce,
Buffalo, N. Y.
In a little more than 30 years Dr.
j Fierce, chief consulting physician to the
Invalids' Hotel and surgical institute.
Buffalo, N. Y., assisted by his staff Of
nearly a score of physicians, has treated
and cured hundreds of thousands of sick
and suffering women.
If the dealer offers you a "Just as
good" medicine In place of "Favorite
Prescription" it Is because less meritori
ous medicines pay him a little mora
profit His profit is your loss. Insist
upon having "Favorite Prescription," th
medicine which makes weak women
strong and sick women well.
THE REASON WHY.
Some medical works content them
selves by classifying advice under tho
head of "Do" or "Don't." Dr. Pierce's
Common Sense Medical Adviser gives the
reason why, for all it enjoins. It Is a
plain guide to health, written In plain
English and dealing with the great prob
lems of physiology and hygiene from
the viewpoint of common sense. This
great, work, containing 1008 large pages,
is sent free on receipt of stamps to pay
expense of mailing only. Send 31 1-cent
stamps for the work In cloth binding, or
only 21 stamps for the book in paper
covers. Address Dr. R. "V. Pierce, Buffalo,
return to England earlier, try to have &
talk with the stewards, and at any rate
ask a hearing."
