OFFICIAL PAPER FOR BENTON COUNTY
The whisky, lager beer and gin

Sunday in Portland.
The matter of making a ditch with
capacity to convey water in suffi
cient quantity to run all kinds of
mills aud machinery in our town is
beirT talked of bv the citizens of
the idea of buildiDg the railroad
bridge below the city and has also
given up the idea of building the
Union stepot on the Portland side.
Some of Portland's citizens contend
that be never intended to build eith
er one of tbem but simply promised
to do so in order by such promisee
to induce Portland people to con
tribute more money lor his purposes.
Some of Portland's best citizens
think that he nerer intended to bild
any ot these improvements at Port
land but had long ago selected the
Sound as the place for the terminus.
But the "Boomers" for Albina pro
perty claim that the terminus will
be there on account of the obstruc

brought into Corvallis then we may
expect woolen mills, grist mills, saw
mills and other manufactures of
various kinds soon thereafter :o b

place is the first important step to
making it a manufacturing town.
It would be well for the people of
Oregon to awake to the situation
and so agitate the question of caring
for and protecting our already rap
idly disappearing salmon from the
waters of our coast that this ques
tion will assume a deffinite, decided
and effective purpose. The chinook

that :n a very tew years will be ex

The people of Dakota have bepn
greatly agitated for the past six
months over the location of the ter
ritorial capital, and after enormous
sums of money were offered by var
ious towns as an inducement, the city
of Bismarck was finally decided as
the place of location. Since this sev
eral persons have been indicted for
attempting to corruptly influence the
action of the capital commission in
the selection of a new location, as
much as $15,000 having been offered
for one vote. Bismarck will no
doubt be the capital city, however,
as preparations are now being made
for the erection of the necessary
POKTLAND'3 BIG HOTEL.
The grounds purchased where the
central school in Portland was loca
ted and where only a few weeks ago
was the scene of activity is now as
still and quiet as the deathlike silence
of the graveyard. When this piece
of property was purchased at Vil
lard's suggestion, such was the hurry
that hardly time could be given for
moving the old school building which
occupied the grounds. But when
opportunity was offered to Portland
people to subscribe to this enterprise
they did not give as liberally as was
anticipated, and so the whole soheme
came to a sudden halt. Portland
people only subscribed about $20,000
and that was not sufficient in amount
with which to carry on any great
schemes. And from all that now
appears to the observation of any
one the great and beautiful word
pictures which was only :i tew short
weeks ago made appear to the peo
ple of Portland and her board of
trade regarding the grand future of
Portland and what woidd be done
for that city, must all remain as
empty words anil vanish with the
air and must also depend upon her
own resources and that of her citi
zens and not upon some railroad
Portland and some of the sur
rounding country has been for some
time pa3t undergoing what in com
mon acceptation is termed a "boom."
Tier real estate agents and others
interested in wildcat speculations
have so managed to-work up excite
ment in real property so that prices
have run beyond all reasonable fig
ures and far beyoi-d what they could
be placed by any uninterested and
indfferent person unless the calcula
tions as to such prices emanated
from a crazed imagination without
the application of the least particle
t:f common sense.
The country for fifteen or twenty
miles up and down aud on both sides
of the river and for 6 or 8 miles east
and west on either side and surround
ing Portland is laid off into lots and
blocks for pretended city purposes
covering an area of ground large
enough to contain the largest city
of the world and yet these real estate
"Boomers" invite the unsophisticated
seekers for speculation into their
meshes with the same spirit and in
terest that actuated the spider to
ward the fly." The excitement over
town property made only on paper
and surrounding the city of Portland
and the exhorbitant values thereof
have been worked up to the unrea
sonable and ruinous condition that
at one time characterized the gamb
ling in mining stocks in San Fran
cisco. The country gent from np
the valley or the immigrant from
the East who has a small amount of
money to invest and being anxious
to make something for nothing they
are ready victims and easily talked
into these unwholesome and ruinous
schemes. After a short time, how
ever, and when it is too late they
find out the true condition of affairs
and to their surprise learn that in
stead of their making a fortune out
of nothing they realize that they
have littie or nothing left except
more experience than when they in
vested. After such persons get vic
timized a few times it begins to dawn
upon their vision that "Booms" do
not really increase the value of prop
erty but its effect only is to inorease
the excitement of the fools who- be
come victimized while the actual
value of the real estate or other pro
perly remains the same and no more
than when the "Boom" began. Ex
perience, however, is the only school
in which such people can learn.
Rents of nearly if not quite all of the
business buildings in Portland have
doubled within the last several
months; the business men who oc
cupy them still express satisfaction
with their business.
TALK ABOUT PORTLAND.
After the intense excitement which
has prevailed in and about Portland
for several months over the promises
made regarding their grand hotel
and Union depot, the result of the
fever heat has began to develop, the
real condition of affairs. Real estate
which has been selling at such ex
tortionate prices has commenced' to
find its common level. It is not
salable any longer at such prices.
The Albina speculation commenced
going back on its advocates some
time ago and the real estate "Boom
ers" with some of the handy andy
papers have just been endeavoring
to revive the enthusiasm in respect
to that once favored place. They
regard it as a good and the only
time to strike because it is said that

ted with- a lawsuit lias abandoned

PROVIDENCE IN OREGON.
'I never advise a man to leave his own
town,' he said to a small crowd surrounding
him.at the Union Depot the other day; "but
if any of you are bound to change locations,
Oregon is the country to go to. I am on
my way back there, and there's nothing you
can ask about Oregon that I can't tell you."
"How's the climate ? "Superb. It's never
too hot nor too cold. Providence watt-.hes
the weather out there like a hawk. " ' 'Lots
of Injuns ?" "Yes, but they can't do any
damage. Providence always gives the set
tlers ample warning, or else leads the red
men into a trap." "Some hard cases out
there, arn't there ?" ' 'Not very hard.
When a man gets too bad Providence kills
him off." "How did you lose your leg?"
asked the hack-driver, as the conversation
flagged. "I'll tell you about it. I've men
tioned Providence and Oregon in the same
breath, and I want to prove that there is a
special dispensation out there. I was going
up the Delros road to a grist mill one day
last September when I found a four ounce
bottle of chloroform in the road. About a
mile further on I met a grizzly bear as large
as a steer. I had no weapon, 'and I knew I
was boxed up. To run was useless, and no
living man ever looked a grizzly out of coun
tenance. I always try to make the best of
every situation and when I found myself
cornered I opened the dottle of chloroform
and inhaled sufficient to make me uncon
scious. While in this state the bear made a
breakfast of my left leg, and I never felt one
single twinge of pain. " There was a sensa
tion in the crowd and all pressed nearer.
"When I came to, the bear had disappeared,
and just at that time the Ked Valley coach
drove up. Providentially, two of the pas
sengers had fallen over a precipice, so that
there was room made. When we got to
Brown's Hill we found a surgeon there who
had been chased in by the Indians that very
morning, and he fixed me up in an hour. I
saw the hand of Providence all through it
as plain as I see that hotel over there."
"Did Providence get that cork leg for yon?"
inquired a hoodulum near the door. ''Cer
tainly it did; I lay in bed two months, and
when I took the stage coach for Portland we
came across the body of a poor stranger who
had been murdered by highwaymen. He
had a cork leg and it was my fit. This is
the identical leg. and let me add in conclu
sion that I haveu't begun to give Provi
dence and Oregon half their just dues."

THE INDIAN DIFFICULTY.
The danger of an Indian outbreak at
Spokane Falls has been somewhat imminent
for some time. The Indians belonging to
Chief Moses' reservation have been quite
discontented for weeks, and an outbreak
has been threatened. So much has this
been feared that some days ago the author
ities at Spokane Falls telegraphed Gov.
Newell, at Olympia, for arms and muni
tions, and their demands for the time were
supplied. It seems the people of the first
mentioned city are yet not as liberally sup
plied with defensive weapons as could be
wished, foi yesterday a telegram wa3 re -ceived
by Dr. Bostwick, in this city, asking
that the arms obtained from the capital and
used by Custer Post No. 6, G. A. R. on
Memorial Day, be returned at once, as there
was use for them.
The arms in question comprised about
fifty rifles, and were forwardel immediately
to the person mentioned in the telegram. It
was desired that they remain here until at
ter the Fourth of July, but the unforseen
demand made it necessary that they be re
turned at once. Meditating an attack on
the citizens of the particular locality in
Eastern Washington, there is no telling
how many settlements in the Snake, Col
ville and Big Bend valleys, contiguous to
Moses' reservation may be involved in dan
ger, and the citizens have rightly concluded
it is better to go armed and well prepared.
SHOOTING NEAR LAFAYETTE.
McMinn ville, Or., June 10. Special to
the Oregonian. At the Crystadelphian
meeting to-day near Lafayette, Rev. L. T.
Nichols was shot by two youg men. The moth
er of the boys who did the shooting has had
much mental suffering lately, induced, it is
said, by Nichols' teaching, by which reflec
tion was cast upon the memory of her late
husband. Nichols also had had something
to do about her property. Mrs. Martin
went to the meeting to-day and her sons,
William and James, aged about 28 and 30
years, followed to take her away and bring
her home. Some of the brethren inter
fered. This enraged the Martins, and they
being powerful men, physically,, knocked
down those about them right and- left.
Nichols ran and was- shot in the back, the
ball entering just above the right hip and
lodging against the skin of the abdomen.
It may prove fatal. The Martin boys have
the sympathies- of the community. Some
think Nichols will not prosecute, but play
the role of a religious martyr.
Somebody has taken the trouble to collect
statistics showing the number of college
educated men in the leading professions.
He finds that of the leading colleges in the
United States an average of 3,2 per cent, of
the graduates adopted the practice of medi
cine;. 21 per cent, became clergymen and
20 per cent, lawyers. So- it appears that
not half as many college graduates study
medicine as-enter the ministry or upon the
practice of law, while only one- naif of the
whole number of graduates enter the- three
leading professions.. But it is shown- that
in the medical schools of the United States
in 1SS0 there were 9876 students, as, against)
5093: in theological schools and 3134 in law
schools. Again, from the reports of the
various professional schools to the United
States Commissioner of Education it ap
pears that of those in. attendance at pro
fessional schools the per cent, of students
holding degrees in art was ia. medicine 7.9
per cent, in theology 26.4 per cent, and in
law 24. 1 per cent. Standard.
THE WHITE ELEPHANT.
New York, June - 9. The Times prints
an improbable, story about Barnum's at
tempted capture of the: siam Sacred white
elephant and land it in San Francisco. Sev
eral Siamese men went to Ga3'lord, Bar
nums agent, and told them, that they knew
of a white elephant belonging to the Rajah,
which they could get for $100,000 in Eng
lish gold. Gaylord had said he would take
the animal only when it was in British poss
essions. It was a .hazardous undertaking,
and men would have to travel six weeks
with the white elephant. They could not
drive him except under cover of darkness,
on account of fear they would have trouble,
and would be obliged to rest during the day
for that reason. Sam Nickerson, a Con
necticut Yankee, volunteered to go, and a
bargain was struck, whereby $25,000 was to
be paid at the Moulmein, and the remain
ing 75,000 at San Francisco. Buddhist
priests were to accompany them. Gaylord
cabled Barnum early in May, that the white
elephant arrived safely at Moulmien. He
had secured a spotted elephant for about
$25,000 which, he added, would arrive at
San Francisco Jnly 1st. . Next day a dis
patch came that Gaylord had beeu arrested
for stealing a; .white elephant but subse
quently he had. been -acquitted. Nothing
more was heard "'from Gaylord; Two or
three days afterwards -a dispatch was print
ed in a newspaper saving- that a white ele
phant belonging to the circus died at that
place where Gaylord was supposed to be.
It is thought that this is an excuse to si
lence the natives anil that Gaylord will turn
up all right with his white elephant at San
Tie New Transcontinental Line.
The latest reports of the tracklaying on
the Northern Pacific railroad shows that
the eastern division will reach Helena not
later than Friday of this week, and the
western division will reach Missoula not
later than the 25th instant, possibly by the
20th. Then there will be a gap of 126 miles.
Many bridges between Helena aud Missoula
are finished, and those not up will beyond
doubt be ready for the track when it reach
es them. Assuming that only one mile of
track a day is laid at each end and the
average on the eastern end is greater than
one mile the line will be through about
A Host of Attractions.
There is to be a Tertio Millennial An
niversary celebration and a grand Mining
and Industrial exposition, at Santa Fe,
New Mexico, which will be held through
out the month of July next. It is claimed
that Santa Fe is the oldest settlement in
the United States and that this is the 333d
anniversary of that event. Arrangements
are being made for a host of attractions,
which will no doubt induce many of our
people to go west the coming season. Be
sides the exhibits from the mines and won
derful products of that country, bands of
Indians in their native costumes will appear
and show their skill in handiwork, their
peculiar dances, sports, games and races,
demonstrating their dexterity with the
lance and bow and arrow.
Portland's Fourth of July celebration will
be attended by immense throngs from' the
interior. A sham battle will be given in
South Portland during the day by the Van
couver troops, and there will be a grand
display of fireworks-iu the evening;.

WHISKY WORK WITH: WOMEN.
So far as tlje moral Uw is con
cerned it is just as criminal lor a man
to get drunk as for a woman. The
destination is made by society, and
our women are the ones that do most
to discriminate in favor ot the men
drunkards, and against, their own
sex. They may not be to blame.
Perhaps they are circumstanced as
not to be able to shield themselves.
As long, however, as ladies, and es
pecially professed temperance ladies,
continue to recognize and associate
with the averaga American drinker
hoodlum, and call him "such a nice
young man," the temperance cause
need not look to realize any success
till results toward its promotion from
such thoughtless and aimless advo
cates. These "nice young men"
would be far from being found in
the public societyofthe.se same ladies
if they occupied the relation tbat
the young men do. The young
women replvs how can I help myself
so many of them drink; who can I
marry but a drinking man. You
had better go to the undertaker's
office and select a common coffin or
a neat casket if yon can afford it and
cret into it and hire the undertaker
to secure the lid over you and to see
you decently hurried if you can do
no better than to marry a drinking
man. You will wish yourself dead
and in your grave many and many a
time if yon do.
