VANCOUVER. "Wash.. Feb. 7. A great
disappointment was in store for the peo
ple of Vancouver in a dispatch from
"Washington, D. C, -which appeared in
The Oregonlon today. The dispatch
was as follows:
"The Senate today passed Senator
Mitchells bill authorizing the "Washing
ton & Oregon Railway Company to con
struct a railroad bridge across the Colum
bia River, near Vancouver."
People of Vancouver have no fight to
make on the railroad bridge, but they
'want some provision made for wagons
and pedestrians. A great effort will be
made to have the bill amended to this ef
fect. The Commercial Club has taken the
matter in hand, and petitions are being
circulated asking for the change in the
bill heretofore mentioned. These memor
ials will be forwarded to the "Washing
ton and Oregon members of Congress at
The people of Vancouver with few ex
ceptions are strongly in favor of a
wagon bridge. The impression has pre
vailed all along that such a bridge was to
be built, and when it became apparent
that the company intended to construct
only a railroad bridge the matter became
one of Intense interest. Vancouver and
Clark County will do everything In their
power to have the bill amended, and will
also appeal to Portland for assistance.
Edmund Rice, Secretary and manager of
the Washington & Oregon Railway Com
pany, when seen today and asked to
give a statement of the Intention of the
company in regard to a wagon bridge,
declined to be interviewed, saying he
knew nothing about the matter whatever.
Mayor A. 13. Eastham. who Is taking an
active part in the circulation of the me.
morlal referred to, expressed himself as
heartily In favor of a wagon bridge. He
says it would be a great mistake to build
a bridge of the magnitude of the one pro
posed for railroad traffic alone. He Is
also of the opinion that the revenue which
would be derived from tolls would be
ample to justify the company In going to
the additional expense necensary to add
another deck to the structure for the ac
commodation of general travel.
State Senator E. M. Rands said: "By
all means it should be a wagon bridge.
It seems to me such a bridge would be of
immense advantage to this city and
county, and that the revenues derived
from it would more than pay interest on
the amount invested."
Prominent among the citizens who ex
pressed dissatisfaction over the form of
the bill as passed and as strongly In favor
of the wagon bridge are Representative
J. M. P. Chalmers, Judge of the Su
perior Court A. L. Miller; County Com
missioner -Cal Shaw, City Councllmen S.
F. Bodyfelt. E. R. Schofield and C. P.
McCarty, Scott Swetland, Captain F. A.
Boutelle, County Attorney "W. "W. Sparks,
S. M. Beard, president of the Commercial
Bank; R. M. Sparks and J. H. Jaggy.
Among the most active and outspoken
altfng this line are Colonel James A.
Munday and ex-Lieutenant Governor
Thurston Daniels. Colonel Munday was
the first to propose action In the matter
today, and took the initiative in calling
the special meeting of the Commercial
Club which prepared the memorial on
Mr. Daniels said: "If a bridge is to be
built across the Columbia it certainly
should provide for accommodation of tlie
general public In the way of a wagon
bridge. Considering the size of the stream
and the increasing population of Portland
and Vancouver, It Is a public necessity.
The experience we have just had of a two
weeks' blockade of the Columbia and Its
interference with the mails and general
traffic simply because of a little floating
Ice should make this plain to any citi
zen of Vancouver."

nni avuh nifii-HNseii.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. The Mil passed
by the -Senate yesterday authorizing the
Washington & Oregon Railway Company
to construct a bridge across the Columbia
River near Vancouver contemplates a
railway bridge solely, ami in this respect
is like dozens of similar bills that are be
ing passed ach session. While a similar
bill has been reported to the House, it Is
yet possible, if there is a sufficient de
mand, to have the bill so amended as to
wrmlt of th use of this bridge by wagons
.'nd pedestrians, but In -such event the
company constructing the bridge would be
permitted to charge tolls. However, at
the time the bill was introduced the de
mand was solely from the railroad com
pany. ICE HARVEST IV ELL OX.

Kldd, the trainw recker, was brought be

pleaded guilty to murder in the second
degree, as charged In the information
against him. He waived further ttial and
was Immediately sentenced to imprison
ment for life. Under the law of 1S0S. pro
viding for the punishment of persons
placing obstructions on railroad tracks,
this sentence was the highest degree of
punishment. Sheriff JCelly started for
Salem this afternoon with Kldd in charge.
The crime for which Kidd was sentenced
was committed December C last, and con
sisted of placing a ;n-inch iron nut upon
the outer rail of the O. R. & N. track on
a six-degree curve, near Celilo, as a re
sult of which the Chicago-Portland Spe

around a curve the tendency of a train is
outward, but it is held to the track by
the fianges on the, wheels, fitting Inside

on the outer rail raised the wheels enough
to let the flanges slip over, and the train

Address of Superintendent Ackerman
In his address to the class on the sub
ject or "Aiming." Superintendent Acker
man said In part:
"Aim high. Do not be satisfied with low
Ideals. It is better to have a high mark
and come as close to it as possible than
it Is to lower your Ideal, and your power
with It. Conserve your power and build
for more of It- You can gain power In any
dlrection. If you study for It. To succeed,
you must concentrate all your faculties
of mind upon one unwavering aim and
have a tenacity of purpose which means
victory or death.
"This age of concentration calls not for
educated men, merely; not for talented
men. not for geniuses, not for jacks-of-all-trades,
but for men who are trained for
one thing as well as It can be done. A
man may starve to death on a dozen half
learned trades or occupations; he may
grow rich and prosperous upon one trade
thoroughly mastered, even though It be
the humblest. A one-talented man who
decides upon one definite object accom
plishes more than a 10-talented man who
scatters his energies and never knows ex
actly what he wilt do.
"Scientists estimate that there is energy
enough in less than 50 acres of sunshine
to run all the machinery of the world, if
It could be concentrated. But the sun
might blaze on the earth forever without
setting anything on fire, although these
rays, focused by a burning glass, would
melt solid granite. There are plenty of
persons who have ability enough; the
rays of their faculties taken separate.y
are all right, but they are powerless to
collect them to bring them all to bear
upon a single spot.
"You should stick to your purpose. The
constant changing of one's occupation is
fatal to all success. How many young
men fall to reach the point of efficiency In
one line of work before they get discour
aged and venture Into something else. The
more completely we master a vocation
the more thoroughly we enjoy it.
"There is no grander sight than a young
man fired with a great purpose, dominated
by an unswerving aim. He is bound to
win. He does not have half the opposition
to overcome that the undecided, purpose
less man has. What a sublime spectacle
It Is to see a youtn going straight to his
goal, cutting his way through difficulties
and surmounting obstacles which dis

Thousands of women who are living quictiy, amid he luxuries of home have hidden suffering.
They start at every little jar or noise. They become irritated at the slightest cause. They suffer peri
odical pains but have- little understanding of what causes them. If they went to a doctor for an exam
ination they would be shocked to hear they had "female troubles" a prospect which strikes terror i
a woman's heart. Female troubles come on gradually, but plain warnings tell of their approach.
Are you nervous?
Do little things annoy you ?
Do you start at every sound ?
Are you discouraged and miserable on certain days, then elated again the next 1
Are your menses painful or irregular?
If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions you should not be deceived. You are suffering
vith female troubles and should begin the Wine of Cardui treatment at once. It will cure you as it
has cured 1,000,000 other women. It cures in the privacy of the home. No private examinations.
No operations. Could relief be easier? Try Wine of Cardui.

XEW PROCESS FOR. SAVIXG GOLD.
Salem Business Men nnd Discoverer
Think They Have Struck It Rich.
SALEM. Or.. Feb. 7. William L. Long,
a stranger who has spent the past six
weeks here, is confident he has discov
ered a new process for extracting gold
from ores which Is cheaper than the pres
ent methods and saves three times the
amount of gold that can be secured by
putting the ore through a smelter. His
process is similar to that of Proressor
Winn, who recently died In Denver. Long
has interested several prominent business
men of Salem in his discovery. He has
secretly experimented with ore from vari
ous sections with great success. His last
experiment was with- tailings from the
Ashland smelter. Long extracted 43 cents
from 10 pounds of tailings, or at the rate
of $30 to the ton. after the smelter had
secured $40 per ton from the same ore.
Long says his process makes no gold, but
the chemical used by him to extract In
visible gold from ore simply does Nature's
work of thousands of years in a few
Seven well-known local business men
have associated themselves with Long,
and though their names are withheld now,
have already taken steps to organize n
company to begin operations. They pro
pose to establish a laboratory nere. wltn
a capacity of 20 tons of ore per day. It is
announced that the new company will be
known as the Universal Gold Mining &
Extracting Company, and will in a few
days be ready to begin operations.
