brisk. Fw buyers from "Wyoming are
already on the groaod, ana Cashier Cour
ser has advfoes of others on the way

them and arrived. Sheep are considered
the very beet investment, aqd milch
money is doubled up here every year in
handling them. Prices have recently ad

The bands of James Hager, N. S. "Whet

sold to J. C. Carson & Co., of Rawlins,
Wye Tms firm has bought S309 head,
and wants 1,6M more. These sheep are
not to be delivered until May S, after they
have been shorn, and at present prices
of wool they will each yield their old own

over to their new owners.

John A. Doneetl and D. B, Castlday
arrived here last sight from Rawlins,
Wyo.. to buy sheep. Brisk buying is ex
pected, and the supply of sheep on hand
will hardly meet the demand.
In Morrow county 4here are close to 100,
000 surplus sheep for sale, and 50,009 more
In the near neighborhood. The spring In
crease takes the place of aH the outgoing
sheep, leaving the number in Morrow
county upward of 300,080.
Heppner is the grand starting point for
-the big bands of sheep that go Bast every
year. Here the transfers are made and
the money Is paid, and the outfits are
rigged out. The average expenditure of
each outfit at starting here is $1009. The
sheep are driven In bands of about 7000,
and the cost of driving to "Wyoming is
26 cents per head.
The big Carson bands will probably be
shipped by rail from Heppner to Hunting
ton, thus getting across the dry Snake
river country before the weather warms
up. In this way these bands get 24 days
ahead of the trailers who drive all the
way. The Carson firm Is now wintering
65,080 head hi Wyoming. Mr. Carson says
that the new quarantine law of "Wyoming
is aimed at Utah sheep, 309,000 of which
Have been coming to Wyoming to range.
Steok Is Safe.
Large losses of stock in previous winters
have caused stockmen here to adopt mod
ern methods, and all of them bow have
an abundance of hay, so that loss from
lack of feed is out of the question. All
kinds of stock are rolling fat, and are
now being fed hay. The weather here is
pleasant, with a slight showing of snow
still on the ground, extending from the
mountains to IS miles north of Heppner.
During the last few nights the thermome
ter has been visiting four degrees above
zero, and going 30 degrees higher during
the day, with sunshine enough slowly to
melt the snow. The Immense Importance

Oregon City Courier.
An idea prevails among many people
that all the available power for factories
at tbe falls Is already harnessed. This Is
an erroneous impression. Competent en
gineers state that 40,000 horse-power of
water is going to waste over the precipice
for nine months in the year that could
be practically utilized. Many large manu
factories in the East have only water
power for two-thirds of the year on ac
count of the cold weather. Factories here
could run on heavy raw material while
there is plenty of power, and do finishing
work when the power is low.

AN OLYMPIA MYSTERY.
Body of a Youngr "Woman Found on
the Tide Flats.
OLYMPIA. Feh. 17.Th hn. n nn
Ether J. Cullen was found on the tide
flats, near Eighth street, today. Miss
Cullen had been missing since Thursday
evening, but search was not instituted
until this morning. When the tide went
out the body was found. Miss Cullen had
lived In Olympia all her life, and was of
excellent character, so the theory of sul-
ciae is not strongly entertained. The un
fortunate young woman was 26 years of
age, and a prominent member of the Epis
copal church. The complete air of mys
tery which surrounds her death was not
relieved by evidence produced before the
coroner's jury, which has deferred a
verdict for a few days until additional
evidence can be secured.
The state board of land commissioners
has granted right of way over section 56,

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17. Late this aft
ernoon the house passed the legislative,
executive and judicial appropriation bill,
after having It under ponslderation four
days. A spirited coiioquy between Sulzer
(dem. N. Y.) and Grosvenor (rep. O.) was
the feature of today's session. Fresh from
the anti-trust conference in Chicago, Sui
ter directed the attention of the house- to
the "monster monopolies," whleh he said
were fostered by the republican adminis
tration. He adverted, in passing, to Ohio
politics. These utterances drew the Are
of General Grosvenor, who referred to
the "political garbage" which Sulzer had
brought back to Washington after his
"hippodroming tour" through the West
as "a vice-presidential candidate." The
civil service appropriation, which was
stricken out of the appropriation bill in
the committee of the whole, was restored
in the house by a vote of 77 to 123.
The speaker announced the appointment
of James H. Davidson, of Wisconsin, as
chairman of the committee on railways
The house then resolved Itself Into com
mittee of the whole and resumed consid
eration of the legislative appropriation bill.
In order to present his views upon trusts
and the financial bill, which is new in
conference, MIers (dem. Ind.) offered an
amendment He antagonized the pro
vision of the financial bill, which author
ized national banks to issue currency and
denounced the fastening of the gold stand
ard upon the people as a glaring Iniquity.
He declared that the retirement of the
greenbacks and the placing of the na
tional banks above the government was
the completion of the most woeful blun
der of the age. Mlers declared that after
the passage of the McKlnley. tariff law
34 new trusts -were organized, and since
the McKlnley administration has assumed
power and the Dingley law had gone Into
effect, 200 of such "monsters" had raised
their heads In the country with a capital
MIers' remarks precipitated a lively po
litical debate, participated in by Sulzer,
Grosvenor and Cannon (rep. 111.). Sulzer,
after directing attention to the recent
anti-trust conference held In Chicago,
declared that the trusts were not only
doing irreparable damage, but did it
through tho backing of a republican ad
ministration. "The administration Is responsible for
the trusts," said Sulzer. "It stands spon
sor for them, and refused to do anything
to suppress them. The greatest of all
these trusts Is the money trust and the
conference at Chicago unanimously con
demned the gigantic Iniquity."
Sulzer then had read the resolutions
passed by the anti-trust conference.
"I desire to say to the gentleman (Gros
venor) that the chairman of that confer
ence was ex-attorney-general of Ohio
(Mr. Monnett), who was turned down by
the republican boss, Mark Hanna, because
he had the courage of his convictions and
Instituted action against the Standard
Oil Company. If the attorney-general of
the United States was honest enough to
do his duty, every trust in the country
would be broken, and if Mr. Monnett had
been backed by his party, the Standard
Oil monopoly would now be out of busi
ness." In conclusion, Sulzef dared the repub
licans to pass the financial bill. It was
but a signal to the American people to
rise up and put in the White House, "that
peerless statesman and man of irreproach
able character, Wllllam-J. Bryan."-
Grosvenor replied In a humorous vein,
adverting to Sulzer's aspirations to the
vlce-pre'sldency, and saying that after
Sulzer had been "hippodroming about the
country," he had come back to Washing
ton loaded down with a lot of "political
garbage' In answer to a question of
Sulzer, he said that Monnett had not
been renominated for attorney-general of
Ohio because he had already served two
terms and stepped aside In response to
an unwritten law of Ohio republicans. He
referred to Mr. Monnett as "a very bright
young mdn," and declared that Senator
Hanna had not had the slightest thing to
do with what Sulzer had termed Mon
nett's turning down. The Ohloan paid a
tribute to Attorney-General Griggs, de
claring that "a. better lawyer and a- clearer-headed
administrator of justice had
never been known in the department of
justice." He closed by saying that the
democrats had ample opportunity between
1892 and 1896 to enforce the antitrust laws,
but had failed to do so.
"The American people know that," he
said, "and they know also that between
1S92 and 1896 business broke down, people
starved and everything in general went to
In reply, Sulzer said: "The American
people will not accept the brutal dictation
of the gentleman from Ohio (Grosvenor)
and his -master, Mark Hanna."
Cannon poured oil on the troubled wa
ters In an amusing speech, in which he
appealed to the belligerents to permit a
little public business to be ' transacted.
"Just to fool the people." (Laughter.)
Bromwell (rep. O.) offered an amend
ment providing that the head of any de
partment upon whose rolls the name of
any employe or clerk permanently inca
pacitated from performing , service, ap
pears, shall report thqse names to the

GREAT LAKES COMMERCE.
Growing Trafflo Through the
Ste. Marie Canal.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17. A suggestion
of the extent of the commerce of the
great Inland sea stretching from Buffalo
to Chicago and Duluth, known as the
Great Lakes, la supplied by some figures
which have just reached the treasury
bureau of statistics, showing the details
of the commerce -passing through the
Sault Ste. Marie canal. This canal, which
connects Lake Superior with Lakes Michi
gan, Huron, Erie and Ontario, necessarily
registers only the traffic between tho
single lake, Superior, with Duluth as its
great concentrating and distributing point
and the chain, Michigan, Huron, Erie and
Ontario, with Chicago, Detroit Toledo,
Cleveland and Buffalo as the great points
of concentration and distribution. The
commerce passing through the canal thus
registers accurately the movement be
tween the single lake penetrating the
wheat and iron producing regions and the
chain tributary to the corn, provision and
coal producing, and iron manufacturing
reglona It Is the gateway through which
the wheat, oats, flour, Iron ore, copper
and lumber of Montana, the Dakotas, Min
nesota and Northern Wisconsin and Michi
gan move to tho consuming and manufac
turing sections, while through the same
gateway move In the reverse direction the
coal, manufactures and miscellaneous
merchandise from Lake Erie and points
still farther east All of the traffic mov
ing between Superior and the chain of
lakes from Chicago to Buffalo must pas3
mrougn tne American or Canadian canal,
which canals lie side by side, but a few
yards distant from each other. Of the
total business passing through the two
canals in 1899, 88 per cent was carried by
the American canal, while of the passen
ger business, 68 per cent passed through
the American canal.
It Is only by comparison of the figures
of 1899 with those of earlier years that the
importance or this commerce can be real
ized, especially as regards its rapid
growth. The actual number of passages,
through the canal, by which Is meant the'
.total number of vessels, counting each
vessel as often as It passed through the
canal, was 20,055 during 1S99, against 9579
in 1898; having thus more thaa doubled
during that term. The total freight pass
ing through the' canal In 1S99 was 25,255,810
tons, against but 7,516,022 tons In 1889,
showing that the freight has Increased
much more rapidly .than the number of
vessels, thus indicating In some degree
the rapid Increase In the size and capacity
of the freight-carrying vessels of the
Great Lakes. The development of grain
production of the extreme Northwest dur
ing the decade is Indicated by the fact
that the wheat carried through the canal
In 1899 w,aa 58.397,335 bushels, and in 1889
16,231,854, while "grain other than, wheat"
In 1899 was 30,000,935, and In 1889 but 2,133,235

Indian War Veterans.
-PORTLAND, Feb. 15. (To the Editor.)

RULERS OF THE WORLD
Meat-Eating Nation Are the Leaders
in Every Branch of Human
The ruling nations of the world are meat
eaters, and history records that they al
ways have been.
Vegetarians and food cranks may explain
this In any way they choose, but the facts
remain that the Americans, English,
French, Russians and Germans are meat
eating nations, and they are also the most
energetic and most progressive.
The principal food of tho heroic Boer sol
dier, known as Biltong, is a sort of dried
beef, affording a great deal of nourishment
in a highly concentrated form.
The weak races of people are the rice
eatilng Chinese, Hindoos and Siamese, re
garded since the dawn of history as non
progressive, superstitious and Inferior, phy
sically and mentally, to the meat-eating
nations who dominate them.
The structure of the teeth plainly indi
cates that human beings should subsist
upon a variety of food, meat, fruit and
grains, and it Is unhygienic to confine one's
diet to any one of those classes to the ex
clusion of another.
Meat is the most concentrated and most
easily digested of foods, but our manner
of living is often so unnatural that the di
gestive organs refuse to properly digest
meat, eggs, and similar nutritious and
wholesome food, but it Is not because
such food is" unwholesome, but the real
reason is that the stomach lacks, from
disease or weakness, some necesary diges
tive element; hence arising Indigestion and,
later on, chronic dyspepsia.
Nervous people- should eat plenty of
meat, convalescents should make meat the
principal food, hard-working people have
to do so and brain-workers and office men
should eat, not so much meat, but. at least,
once a day, and, to Insure Its perfect di
gestion, one or two of S"tuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets should be taken after each meal,
because they supply the peptones, diastase
and fruit acids, lacking In every case of
Nervous dyspepsia, catarrh of stomach,
gastritis, sour stomach, gas and acidity are
only different names for Indigestion, the
failure to digest wholesome food, and the
use of Stuart's Tablets cures them all be
cause by affording perfect digestion the
stomach has a chance to rest and recover
Its natural tone and vigor.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the real
household medicine; it is as safe and pleasant-for
the stomach ache of the baby as it
Is for the Imperfect digestion of its grand
sire. They are not'a cathartic, but a digestive
and no pill habit can ever follow "their
use: the only habit Stuart's Tablets Induce
is the habit of good digestion and conse
quently good health.

all the organs of the body suffer from lack
of nerve control, and the blood vessels that
supply these organs are not in proper tone.
