SOUTHERN" PACIFIC MEETTXG.
Georgre Gould and Member of Harrl-
man Syndicate Elected Members.
NEW YORK, April 3. At a meeting to
day of the Southern Pacific Company In
this city, the following directors Tvero
elected: T. J. Coolidge, Jr.; George J.
Gould, E. H. Harriman Edwin Hawley.
Charles M. Hays, H. E. Huntington,
James H. Hyde, Otto H. Kuhn, J. W.
.Mackay, 3D. O. JMills, Winslow S. Pierce,
J, H. Schiff, James Speyer, James Still
snan and Charles H. Tweed. The new
board has seven members of the Union
Pacific syndicate -which recently acquired
control of the Southern Pacific, seven of
the old Huntington representatives of the
road, and George J. Gould, a?ew director,
-who was a member of the Harriman syn
dicate, is expected to act In their interest.
Charles H. Tweed was re-elected chair
anan of the board of directors of tne
Southern Pacific The following execu
tive committee was elected: G-eorge J.
Gould, E. H. Harriman, Edwin Hawley,
Otto H. Kuhn, Jacob H. Schiff, James
Sperer, James Stlllman, with Charles H.
Tweed ex-officlo. E. H. Harriman was
elected chairman of the executive com
anittee. Chairman Tweed said that no
other business of public importance was
The Mall and Express, discussing Mr.
Gould's election to the Southern Pacific
"The election of Mr. Gould is probably
of more significance from the point of
view of possible developments In the rail
road than that of any other director. His
system Is In a sense independent of the
transcontinental lines, but In formulat
ing what has been termed the 'Greater
Missouri Pacific system It is believed he
will have to make an alliance with some
of them. It is to be supposed from
today's developments that the Missouri
Pacific will In the future use the Central
Pacific from Ogden to the coast. By the
acquisition of the Rio Grande Western
and the" "Denver & Rio Grande, it no-n
has a through line from St. Douis to

Bulk of Coeur d'AIene Ore 2Vow Gocit
by Short Line and O. R. & A.
BOISE, Idaho, April 3. An Important
change has been made with reference
to the handling of ores from the Coeur
d'Alenes. Although it has been Ttept quiet,
it was divulged here today. Hitherto
practically all the ore from that section
has been transported over the Northern
Pacific Since some time last month the
larger proportion of these ores has been
handled by the O. R. & N. Co. and the
Oregon Short Dine.
No information was given as to the
cause for this change. It is true, how
ever, that the bulk of the ore from that
famous section now goes east via the
Short Line, and that it has right of way
over all but perishable freight. This
business gives a great Increase to the
traffic -of the Short Dine, as the output
of concentrates from the Coeur d'Alenes
is very large.
Change in Reading- Directory.
PHILADELPHIA, April 3. The Board of
Directors of the Reading Company, at a
meeting this afternoon, accepted the resig
nation of President Joseph S. Harris, and
appointed George E. Baer to succeed him.
President Harris will remain with the
company in an executive position. Mr.
Baer was also elected president of the
Philadelphia & Reading and the Reading
Coal & Iron Company. Mr. Harris, was
chosen a member of the executive com
mittee of the Reading Company and elect
ed a member of the board of directors.
The G. A. R. Rate.
CHICAGO, April 3. Passenger officials
of Eastern roads will meet here next
Wednesday to settle upon arrangements
for the encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic, which is to be held at
Cleveland in September. They will vote
upon a proposition to grant a rate of a
cent a mile for the reunion. It is known
that the officials of some roads are not
favorable to the granting of such a rate,
holding that all available equipment can
be used more advantageously in the Pan
American Exposition traffic It is regard
ed as almost certain, however, that the
precedent set several years aco will cause
the roads to grant the cent-a-mlle rate.
Atohixon Monthly Meeting.
NEW YORK, April 3. The regular
monthly meeting of the Atchison directors
"was held today, but no action was taken
in regard to a dividend on the common
shares. This question, however, was made
a special order for the May meetin.

The newspaper reporters In New York
exert a political influence that is not gen
erally understood. It is not in the way of
molding public opinion, but in bringing
about events within the party organiza
tions. When Governor Odell displayed
reat firmness and grasp, the reporters
simultaneously haw that the great po
litical event would be the downfall of
Boss Piatt at the hands of Odell. Ac
cordingly they proceeded to write along
this line and. devise complications which
would precipitate a conflict between
Piatt and the coadjutor leader.
In 'other "words, the political reporters
In New York are always working in ad
vance of the actual happening. It was
the same way when Richard Croker
came back from England and deposed
Sheehan from the leadership of Tam
many Hall. The reporters reckoned that
the big story ought to be the return of
Croker and the Jail of Sheehan. So they
txuraa writing it as the coming- event.
Croker returned, but for some time der
nled that he was dissatisfied with Shee
han. Denials were useless, however. The
reporters insisted that the two men were
at outs, that Croker was the big boss
and must rule, and Sheehan would have
to go. And he did.
With the "basis of Odell's strong char
acter to work upon the New York news
papers finally announce the surrender of
HORSES FOR ALASKA.
Big- Demand for Animals In the
Horses have become such valuable prop
erty in the Yukon region that J. J. Mor
gan, who has been taking cittle up there
for several years past, has about made
up his mind to take a band of horses this
time and leave his fat beeves at home.
"A hoise that is worth $120 here is worth
$500 at Dawson," Mr. Morgan said yes
terday at the Perkins, "though there Is
no telling how soon the market will be
flooded with horses there, and so there is
some risk In the venture. Parties have
been taking horses in over the ice all
Winter, and have done well thereby, but
I will not start from here until the 15th
of next month, as I will take the stock
down the Yukon In a steamer from White
Horse Rapids. Draught horses are need
ed on the Klondike, while the lighter
horses, for packing purposes, at Circle
City and points on the lower river are
more in demand. The packhorses brought
Into Alaska last year have all died from
starvation, as the Winter was unusually
severe. When horses get down poor In
that latitude, the chill air proves too
much for them, and both fodder and shel
ter were very scarce there the past sea
son. One of the McNamer boys, who left
Portland for Circle City, in January, has
written from Dawson, that of 14 horses
left near Circle City, all had suc
cumbed to hunger and cold, and so a
fresh supply of horses would be needed,
from the States.
"Horseowners In Oregon have therefore
an additional market in Alaska for their
stock and should get good prices for
their animals this Summer. Both the
American and British Armies need Or
egon horses, while the growth of the
country at large also increases the de
mand, as new farms are being opened up,
new logging camps started, and new
railroads are being constructed. The out
look for the horse industry is very bright,
and will continue so for several years, as
It takes four or five years to produce a
full-grown horse. Breeders became dis
couraged a few years ago, as there was
no demand for their animals and so let
their business go largely by default. It
would have been better for them if they
had kept right on, in the light of subse

Wide Misunderstanding of Property
Ovrncrs as to Assessment.
There is considerable misunderstanding
In regard to the proposed Beech-street
sewer system in Multnomah addition, al-
though it appears that a large major-'
Ity of the people there are anxious for
the construction of the system. It could
be easily 'seen at the meeting Tuesday
evening that the conditions are not alto
together understood. The statement was
made by Dr. L. M. Davis that he should
favor the sewer if the assessment of the
costs were equitable and fair, but that
there was no hope that this would be
done. He contended that it would be all
right for the owners of property, whose
lots and blocks are on the streets in
which the main conduit Is laid, for -they
get a direct benefit, but those a long
distance off pay for something they do not
get and for the benefit of the first class
of property-owners. On this ground he
based his opposition that the assessment
was bound to be unfair and unequal.
A simple statement of the situation will
explain the method of assessment. Not
all property in a sewer district Is on the
streets In which the main conduit is laid,
but outside these streets in which the
mains are placed the property Is served
by laterals. Each lot and block bears its
proportionate share of the cost. The as
sessment of the cost Is made so that each
lot or block pay exactly the same In pro
portion to the benefits received, so that
when a sewer system Is completed, the
main conduit laid and laterals in, each
man owning property In the district, no
mater whether he be near or remote from
the main conduit, pays practically the
same. If in the Beech-street sewer system
lots on the streets in which the main con
duit is are asessed $40. then lots remote
from the conduit pay ?25 and $20, so that
when the laterals are put In the outside
property-owners pay practically the same
as the man whose lot abuts the main
sewer. Such assessment, it Is asserted,
Is exactly just and fair.
It was stated that the cost per lot in
the Beech-street sewer system would run
up to $200. An Inquiry was made of the
city officials yesterday, and the idea was
laughed at, and assurances are given that
the highest cost will not be one-fourth
that amount. The Beech-street and -the
Cook-avenue districts will bear the cost
of the construction of the big conduit
through the terminal grounds for the rea
son both will use it Roth districts- take
In a large territory, and the cost per lot
will be small. It Is not known just what
the cost will be to build this conduit
through the terminal grounds for the rea
son, said an .official, that there is some
marsh land to pass over. There are about
1000 feet of this,- conduit for which both
districts pay jointly.
Another matter is pointed out by those
favoring the sewer. Multnomah addition
Is growing. The cesspools are generally
reported in bad condition, and will have
to be rebuilt entirely. To build a first
class cesspool will cost from $60 to $75.
Now, it is positively asserted that the
main conduit and laterals in the district
complete wHl cost each lot much less than
$60. It Is even estimated that the cost
per lot may be no more than $40 through
out the district, Including laterals. Ii! the
sewer be defeated, the Health Officer will
require wholesale construction of cesspools
each of which will cost not less than $60,
and maybe more, throughout the district.
This is the situation. Full Information
can be had at the office of the -City En
gineer. The maps there show everything
in connection with the Beech-street sewer
system, and there need be no misunder
standing of the conditions, probable cost
and methods of assessments.
CURE FOR LEECH.
Recipe Found Successfully a Sheep
Grovrer. CRESAVELD, Or., April 2. To the Ed
itor.) As others are giving their ideas of.
leech In sheep, I will add my t mite. I
have Ttnown the disease here for 'years as
leech, but that is about all I knew of It
until a few years ago, when I lost about
one-half of a flock of sheep, which had
been pastured the year before on swale
land. ,t dissected, several of them, and in
no case found any' leech, euch as I have
found in cattle, but most of the livers
were filled with flukes parasites which
att-Un a 'length of about 14 Inche and
are shaped very much,tlike an ash leaf,
the head anoV'neck, corresponding to the
stem of iq. leaf?f -ft
They appear iq sap the substance of the
blood and leave it thin, and watery, caus
ing a kind of dropsy. In all cases dis
sected a tumor or water bag was found
entirely encircling the upper part of the
heaft. After trying numerous remedies
without any apparent effort, I used com
mon baking soda, a' little mixed in their
salt, and gave some of the worst cases a
tablespoonf ul, , after which I never lost
but one sheep.
The next Fall this same flock were
treated according to the following receipt,
and not one was lost from leech the next
Winter and Spring:
Saltpeter, 14 ounces, powdered ginger,
one! ounce; carbonate of Iron one-halt
ounce; salt, one pound; boiling water,
three quarts. Mix the above, and when
nearly cool add nine ounces of spirits of
turpentine. Keep well stirred when using.
Keep the sheep from feed over night, then
glVe two ounces of the mixture and keep
from feed for three hours. Repeat the
dose every fourth day lor two weeks.
A horn 'with the point cut off. Is good
for giving the above with. As some of my
sheep were almost dead' and "recovered, I
believe the disease is curable.

TOLERANCE FOR 'ALL.
Christian Scientists'Adviscd to Emu
late the Jews.
r PORTLAND, April 3. (To -the Editor.)
My attention was called to a letter In
defense of Christian Science from the pen
of Mr. G. R. Higglns, recently published
In The Oreggonian.
I fully concur with Mr. Higglns that
the true believer In and practitioner of
Christian Science does not deserve the
appellation of Insane. Curing one's ail
ment by prayer of a godly' man Is not
Christian Science It Is as old as Moses,
the Lawgiver (Numbers, xil: 13). But as
"there arose not a prophet since In Israel
like unto Moses" (Deuteronomy xxxlv:10),
this cure was abandoned, and the godly
man was- substituted by physician, and
Ijrayer by balm (Jeremiah vili:22).
' That belief lr. the means pf a cure is
mostly a perfect success to the sick Is a
matter of fact. Professor Menaseln, In
,hle treatise on belief and superstltition
'(St. Petersburg, 1875). gives many in
stances where Russian peasants were
cured of sickness by their clergy's apply
ing the holy water or by muttering cer
tain formulas by ignorant old peasant
The nearest appellation to healing by
belief may be superstition, but by no
What do not agree with Mr. HIggins
is his interpretation of Mark xvi:17,
"shall 'they cast out devils," evils, insan
ity. If Mr. Higglns does not believe In
the existence or devils, how will he ex
plain Mark. v:15, "And thgy come to
Jesus, and see him that was possessed
with the devil, and had the legion." . . .
Also verses 16, 18, Luke xl:14, and mostly
how about the devils, of whom It Is told
that Jesus cast them out and they went
into the herd of swine? (Matthew viii:2S,
32; Mark v:12; Luke vlll:33.) Do all those
devils mean evil and insanity? Cannot or
will not Mr. Higglns swallow those mira
cles in their real sense? If not, he would
have to consult Mark xvl:16, on which
Christian Science Is based, according to
As a Jew, I do not believe in Christian
Science, nor In the miracles told in the
New Testament, but I would advise the
critics of those scientists (and'by the way,
also, those bigots, generally , known by
the name missionaries), to follow the tol
erance of the Jew, based on the policy of
Prophet Micah (lv:5): "As to all nations,
let them walk every one in the name of
his god, and we will walk in the name of
the Lord, our God, for ever and ever."
This policy would surely place brother
hood Instead of strife, and harmony in
stead of' enmity.
