did the same thing, the only iliffcirucr
being that they hold for a much 'ov.vr

Spencer F. Bainl, United Sta'esFish
Commissioner, at the nqu'-stof Con
gressman George, has detailed Living
stone Stone to examine the waters of
tho Columbia iivr with the view of
selecting an eligible situ for a .salmon
hatchery. Mr. S'.ono is in charge of
the hatclery on thu McCloud liter in
Culifoinia and thoroughly conversant
with the science of li-.li hatching. 'His
detail by the commirsioiier must result
in great benefit to the State of Oregon
and Mr. Geoign has long been tryirg
to secure the action of Mr, Caird in
reference to a hatchery.
Tho Kanfas City Journal pertinently
and truthfully states the situation
when it says, that "tho Republican
party has no 'bosses.' It 'bosses' it
self, and this accounts for some men
having left it. They couldn't 'boss.'
They will fjnd a wider Held for that
sort of talent in the Democratic party,
the capacious reservoir into which
drifts every sorehead who has been
called to account by Republican offi
cials fomny kind of swindling. The
party that is huiest enough to pur-,c
itself in this way must ejjpect to be
weakened thereby to some extent, and
its only hope of continued success at
the polls is through tho virtue and in
telligenco of tho peop'p, which will
bring it a new vote for everyone lost.'
The Portland Board of Tiade have,
after a most patient investigation of
the subject, endorsed the. iihui of
our townsman, J. JI. ITulFer, for 10
moving the bar obstructions in the
"Willamette and Columbia livers lit
tho hydiaulic process recently patente 1
b-y him. Hon, D. P. Thompson who
is an eminently practicil 111 in was
among the first to see tho adaptability
of the Huffer plan and, ably secoudeil
by Mr. Church, he has coin inced the
Board of its advantages. The supe
riority of the hydraulic plan over that
generally adopted by the government
engineers is: that while tho latter are
blowing through newspapers what they
could, or might, or will do the hyilrau
lie pipe will be blowing the accumulated
Hand off the bottom and forcing i.s
gradual distribution at deeper points
where it tti,l be harmless. Those who
know the- force of water in hydraulic
mining where it iR used to tear down
and move Urge bodies of gravd am)
bowlders have not the slightest doubt
of the complete success of Mr. Huffur's
plan if properly applied.
The lain break among the convicts
at the State Penitentiary, in which
eiuht desperate outlaws succeeded in
escaping to plunder and raid the honest
community, is another foicibie argu
ment against tho present mode of
utilizing convict labor. Tho uso of
Ibis kind of labpr in any branch of
industry that tends to cheapen the
honest labor of decent mechanics is not
only tifjuit to the latter but degrading
to labor irself ond dr-couraging lo
arlKans.' At lies' and uiur any cir
cumstances we nro opposed to its em
ployment in industries lequiting ex
perience or apprenticeships ami in
flexibly so where it permits or necessi
tates the congiegalion of a large num
ber of prisoner in a piisoti work shop;
as communication of bad mm with
each other i.s not reformatory and only
enables them to concock means of
escape. Prisoners should bo worked,
we admit, and made to earn their
bre-id but thtir labor ought not to be
of that character that forces down the
wages of intelligent mechanics. They
should bo put on the public roads,
securely chained, as in many other
states, and made to break stone thus
paying biek to the public part of :he
cost of keeping them and in no way
interfiling with honest labor. Re
formatory sentiment applied to finds
always 1 rady to knife orp'stol a fellow
being, or steal the fruits of his labor i-i
1 flimsy but dangerous humbug and,
in nine cases out of ten, a man who
ju-,t y reaches the penitentiary has
found the place he belongs and if it
has any aesthetic rurnundings he gen
craly in :iig(M to (hid his way hick
again. We vo-itnrn 'o say that if;
peneteniiary discipline only promised
enarse food and haid labor on the pub
lic highways thTii would be fewer
pi it-oners in it and a greater disposition
manifested to steer clear of its cold
While heie lattly, Rev. Mr. Diiver
rela'ed an incident of eatly life in
Oiegon and npp'ie 1 it to those people

religion, without tasting iis&uiets, and

were camped on the b.vk of Mill

tl.e smallest kind. Staking out their

In speaking of the chances of
different Candida' es for "ths. presidency
at the next election the. "Chicago New,"
has the following to say about General
W. T. Sherman;
Among tho possible republican can
didates Gen. .Sherman is one of the
strongest. The first great element of
hfs st length is, of coutse, his brilliant
military record and his almost uni
versal "popularity wiih tho military
elem nt. De-pho his conseroative
political views and the entire absence
of partisanship in his administration
of the army, his nomination would
perhaps awaken more ef the old ani
mosity at l he south than ahuost any
that could be made. Along the. l'nr
of his "march to lite sea" he is re
menibered with peculiar bitterues, and
his controversies with Gens. Joe" John
ston and Wade Hampton '.rould teake
the opposition to hint at tho south so
malignant as unquestionably to react
in his favor at l lie north, and draw
party lines sharper nit 1 cli-er ui on the
issues of the war, or gracing out of it,
than the selection of almost any other
num. His chances would perhaps- be
impaired rather than sttengthened by
his kinship with thu diitiuguiihfd
senator, while the advantage,! and
disadvantage of his relations to the
Roman catholic church would proba'dy
about couutci balance .ieh other. The
condition of thu lepubliean party in
Mhsouri, and its inclination toward
his candidacy, would constitute a tery
powciful element in his chances fot
nomination which cannot now bo df
ti-rmined, while- the fact that he will
then, of his own emotion, its ifweie,
have laid down the h ghest niilitirt
office, and retired lo print) life, will,
create a feeling in his favor that can.
hardly be over-estimated. Such a thins
always can ic? tho palilic heait, ami,
united with his gieat pergonal mag
netism and hajipv faculty f'ir sating
souielhing :it and fresh and lacy ut
any lime, makes Gen. Sherman one of
the .nost available pusihiliiies of hi
arty. Siluatul as in: is, lie ii uu
likely to do nut thing to improve or
impair his chances during ihu time
intervening before ll.o nomination.
