LABORERS ARE NOT PLENTIFUL
Paper Mills and Railroad Experi
ence Difficulty in Finding Men.
OREGON CITY. Or.. April . (Special.)
It has been years since work of all
kinds was as plentiful at Oregon City as
It Is now. Notwithstanding that the pa
per mills maintain a satisfactory wage
schedule, $1.75 being the minimum wages
paid for labor, these Institutions find it
a difficult matter to keep a full force of
operatives. A great majority of the men
working In the mills are transients, many
of whom -do not remain long with any
sort of employment and arc easily Influ-
enced In making a change of location.
The Southern Pacific Company has not
yet secured a force of section hands at
this place to replace those who went on
a strike a few weeks ago because they
were made to perform the same charac
ter of work as was being done by Ital
ians, although they received but $L30 per
day as against $2 for the foreigners. With
plenty of employment available at bet
ter wages, the railroad company is find
ing It impossible to secure men for doing
this class of railroad work at the present
schedule of $1.50 per day.

ate. tonight made the following state
'l observe The Oregonlan states edi
torially In its issue of April that the
so-called White House amendment pro
posed by Senator Long to the rate bill
seems to be a compromise and ex
pressly gives the courts power to re
view the acts or the commission In
fixing rates, but that It is left to the
courts to say whether the old or new
rates shall be in force, pending a
"The statement is not accurate. Tho
Hepburn bill Is silent as to the review
but Is friends contend that thereunder
court review can be had in any case
where the rate or regulation of the
commission shall be in excess of its
authority, or In violation of the con
stitutional right of a carrier; as. for
instance, should the rate be so low as
to amount to the taking of the prop
erty fur public use without Just com
pensation. In all other cases the rates
and regulations of the commission
would and. friends of the bill contend,
should be conclusive.
"Opponents of the bill, however, con
tend that without specific provision for
review no judicial review can be had.
even on the ground that constitutional
rights are invaded and hence the act
would be unconstitutional. To meet
that objection the Long amendment
was prepared and offered. It In terms
restricts the right or review to cases
where tho commission .acts wnolly
without authority or Its orders in
fringe the constitutional right of the
party, which is exactly the right of
review the friends of the bill contend
exists without the amendment.
"The real Issue is. Shall matters rest
ing in the discretion of the commission
be subject to review? The proposed
amendment does not deal with the
question of suspending the orders of
the commission pending review. It be
ing generally believed that the power
of the courts to restrain by Injunction
an order alleged to bo In violation of
the constitutional right, pending Inves
tigation, could not be prohibited. It is
true that Senator Bailey holds other
wise, but there are few who agree with
him. The amendment Is as objection
able to opponents of the bill, however,
as Is the original bill, for they demand
unrestricted review of all orders."

This remarkable woman, whose
Maiden, name was Estes, was born in
Lvnn, Mass., February 9th, 1819, coming-
from a good old Quaker family.
For some years she taught school, and.
became known as a woman of an alert
and investigating' mind, an earnest
seeker after knowledge, and above
all, possessed of a wonderfally sympa-
In .1843 she married Isaac Plnkham.

their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had

Mrs. Pinkham toolc a great interest
In the study of roots and. herbs, their
characteristics and cower over disease.
She maintained that just as nature so
bountifully prorides in the harvest
fields and orchards, vegetable foods of
all kinds; so, if we but take the pains
to find them, in the roots and herbs
of the field there are remedies ex
pressly designed to cure the various
ills and weaknesses of the body, and
it was her pleasure to search these out,
and prepare simple and effective medi
cines for her own family and friends.
Chief of these was a rare combina

and herbs found best adapted for the
cure of the ills and weaknesses necu

that her compound relieved and cured
and it became quite popular among
All this so far was done freely, with

labor of love.
But in 1873 the financial crisis struck
Lynn. Its length and severity were too
much for the large real estate interests
of the Pinkham family, as this class
of business suffered most from
fearful depression, so when theCenten

of income had to be found.
