In view of the tendency In some quar
ter to account for the O. TL & N. oppo
sition to the proposed state appropriation
for a portane railway at the dalles of the
Columbia on the theory that that com
pany has always been against any means
that promised to help tho river commerce.
It Is recalled that the railroad Is on rec
ord as distinctly In favor of the boat-railway
enterprise, which was once adopted
by Consress and has been only negatively
abandoned within the past year. This fact
was clcarlv brought out in a hearing be
fore the committee at Salem a few days
nRO. where correspondence as far back as
the time when Major McNeill was receiver
was submitted to show the attitude of the
officers of the O. R. & X. respecting tho
boat railway, the only plan then under
consideration for glvlns relief ot the
More recently the O. n. & X. signified
Its willingness to co-operate with the
Government In that Improvement by of
ferinc to adjust Its right of way for the
convenience of the boat-railway line. The
railroad company acquired a wide strip of
land, so ns to admit of the shifting of its
tracks out of the way of the boat rail
way. By the relocation of the railroad at
at that point a considerable part of the
old right of way. as well as some of the
newly acquired property, was necessary
to a proper route for tho boat railway.
The O. It. Jt X. Co. offered to exchange
with the Government so that the boat""
railway would have a direct line. A con
tract for this exchange was drawn and
approved by the engineers, and It now

The O. It. & X. has done Its part, but
additional legislation Is required to enable
ihe Government to carry out Its end of
the agreement. Xow that the canal and
locks plan of Improvement has practically
superseded the .boat-railway scheme, the
contract for right of way along the O. It,
& X. track Is simply so must waste paper,
but It showed the good will of the railroad
Captain Langfltt says that In all ne
gotiations for opening the upper Columbia
the O. R. & X. Co. has been more than
courteous. It has always been willing to
grant any reasonable assistance jand to
co-operate In measures that would enable
the Government to make the most of its
XO REASON FOR COMPLAINT.
So Su- Trnllle Men of OrcRon City
All the tmfflc men doing business with
Oregon City say the dispatch published
yesterday morning pertaining to the ad
vance of rates to that point was trrone
ous. There has been a slight readjustment
of the rate schedule la which advances
were made In a number of articles, but
roost of the commodities remain un
changed. There has been no change
whatever in the rates on express matter.
"It Is hardly likely that the advance
amounts to $1000 a month, when all the
freight charges paid In Oregon City do
not come up to that figure," say the
A. dollar a ton has been the merchandise
rite for many years between Portland
and Oregon City and it Is retained at
that figure in the new tariff. Furniture,
lumber, beer, poultry, pianos, wagons,
calves and a few other articles have been
cdvinced. Carrots, potatoes, grain, flour,
fcd anl rnlllstuff, hay and straw (baled),
shaved hoops, Ice, onions, salt and sugar
rvnialn at 5 cents per 100 pounds. Other
commodities vary in rate, but all ore
above the 5 cents. The traffic men do
not think teamsters will make much
rnbney freighting for less than $1 a ton.
President Hurlburt. of the Oregon
Water Power & Railway Company.
which has for a long time been hindllng
the bulk of the Oregon City business,
eald yesterday that some advance had
been made because of the increased cost
of conducting transportation as well as
everything else these days, but that there
"was no design to inflict a hardship on
Oregon City business and If there was
anything inequitable In the new tariff
he would correct it so far as his com
pany was concerned, regardless of what
the others might do.

AO OFFICIAL STATEMENT YET.
Hut Rock Island Ix Novr Included In
NEW YORK. Feb. 6. The principals in
the Rock Island-Union Pacific-Southern
Pacific deals have not yet Issued an official
statement, nor is It likely that they will
do so until tho agreement has been rati

stated on the bert authority that an ex
tension of community of interests has
been entered into, that the Rock Island
will share control of the Houston & Texas
Central road. Tho terms Include giving
Rock Island stock in part or In whole pay

that the Southern Pacific, which is con

OUR AWFUL LANGUAGE.
Spelling- of Kngllah Words Xo Proper
Tent lor School.
PORTLAND. Feb. 5. (To the Editor.)
In your paper of Monday you have a
"special" from Albany telling how school
children In a certain district were poor
epners, wmcn tact was brought forth
during a recent examination.
Now. Mr. Editor, the children are not
to blame for this. The'ppelllng of the
English language Is so bad and so un
natural, that It should never be made a
test of Intellect If a person can, spell that
language or not. And It Is a real pity that
tne great Anglo-baxon raee, so practical
and progressive In almost everything else.
Is so very unpractical and almost silly In
spelling their own language. And bv all
means let us have a reform In this respect
ana nave it wunoui aeiay:
Let the words bo spelled as they are
pronounced, and let us quit our foolish
ness by talking one thing and writing
another, regarding pronunciation. To the
writer it Is almost a credit to a person
to pee ,hlm spell the words as they are
spoken, ehowlng that he Is a natural be
ing when the "right" speller must be ar
tificial before he can learn to spell the
way our English Is spelled. Spelling Eng
lish Is no sign of intellect as arithmetic
and other subjects are, and should, there
fore, never be rnadeya tost In any examln
(Tho ability to spell the Engllah lan
guage may not 'be competent evidence of
a logical or analytical faculty. It does,
however, signify a very certain retentive
capacity, and also a more or less exten
sive course of reading. For tbeso reasons,
as well as the fact that it is necessary
that our spelling, arbitrary though It
may be, must be mastered by those who
would write. It would seem, perfectly
proper to Include it in a test of eleman-

Report Ih Denle.d.
A report printed to the effect that The
Dalles, Portland & Astoria Navigation
Company has bought out the White Collar

THEORIES ABOUT CATARRH.
Pcenllnr Ideati Regarding: a Common
Mark Twain's euro for a cold In the
head, wis simple, but he claims very ef
fective In his own case: his plan was to
eat nothing whatever for 21 hours, or pre
sumably until the trouble had dlsap
Although not able to spjak from per
sonal experience is to the effectiveness
ot this treatment, l certainly has the
merit of extreme economy, but It occurs
to us that the application of It to a case
of nasal catarrh might be mended with
Catarrh, as everyone know. Is a chronic
cold In the head, and Mr. Twain's treat
ment. If It should become a fid. would
mako of us a nation of fasters an army
emulating the example of the Immortal
Tanner, who achieved world-wide fame
by fisting days.
Catarrh is certalnVy becoming a na
tional disease, and there is little doubt
but that errors In diet, particularly over
eating. Is x very common cause.
Most people., however, are more Inter
ested in the cure of the trouble than In
the cause, and modern medical science
has produced more effective and less he
roic remedies than Mr. Twain's.
Hydrastin Is a new remedy, very effec
tive In some forms of Citarrh. Red Gum
IS another, which, on account of Its anti
septic properties Is very valuable, while
many severe cases of Chronic Catarrh
have been" entirely cured by the yan
guinarli, or extract of blodd root, alone.
'Within a year an enterprising chemist
has combined all of these remedies In
tablet form pilatable and convenient,
and the superiority of this ttblet over
.other catarrh remedies Is so apparent
that all druggists now carry them in
stock to supply the popular demand.
They are called Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets, and It Is doubtful If any medicine
has achieved a national popularity In
so short a time .as this.
Stuirt's Catarrh Tablets are used by
thousands of traveling men because they
can bo carried in, the pocket and used
any time and In- any quantity, being free
from Cocaine, opiate or any poisonous
They clear the head and throat from
the disgusting .secretions of catarrh, very
often In a few hours' tlm.-.
For nasal Catarrh.they are far superior
to any wash, lotion'or ointment, the use
of which is often as lnconvcrtient and an
noying as tho disease itself.
For coughs, colds, bronchl.il catirrh and
catarrh of stomach these tablets give
immediate relief and a permanent euro
where lotions, douches and Inhalers mike
no impression whatever.
This preparation is a boJn to catarrh
sufferers, and any druggist' will tell you
that Stuart's Citarrh Tablets is a remedy
that has come to stay.
