TO OUARD THE RIVLK.
Two Carloads of Torpedoes Soon to
he Planted In the Columbia,
luat In the nick of tlms and iliuullani
nit willi the leglnnlog ol the war with
Spain, I ao tarloads of torpedoes (or tbe
prelection ol I ho mouth ot the Columbia,
arrived here (rout Ihe Kisl yeeUrdar,
aud will be at once lorward to their
destination by Captain Flak, United
States engineers, who, io connection with
hiachargrtof on a fortificalloi.s of the
Colutnbi, will have to superintend Ihe
"planUog" ol them, and see that they
are placed where they will d the most
good by doing the most harm to ihe
It is generally understood that these
torpedoes, which, when placed in Ihe
river channel w ill form a "submarine
mine," probably much thi-Kiriin a that
which ih'slr.iyt-il (he Maine, ar- nothing
like lbs torfedea fired Irom torpedo
boa ts or olber war veseels. During tbe
civil war, submsrius mines were made
by loading from tanks, of any kio-l, as
buoys, or even steam boilers, with the
highest explosive obtainable, and, after
connecting electric wires with them,
sinking them In the channel.
The torpedoes which arrived yester
day are hollow spheres of steel, about
three feet in diameter, each provided
with a sort of "hale," which hangs be
neatL, to which the cable for anchoring
them is attached. The reason lor tbe
torpedoes being spherical io form is that
it has been shown that a ipbere offers
less resistance to tbe currect than any
olber form, andj lias lets tendency to
turn around and so twist and perhaps
break tbe cable by which it ii anchored.
These spheres will be loaded with gun
cotton or some other high explosive,
and will be buoyaul enoogh to float.
They will be anchored on the field se
lected for the tuioe, each beiug furnished
with a cable adapted to I be depth ol
water io which it is placed, so that they
wi'l all float at tbe same distance from
the surface. They will be laid in rows,
tbe torpedoes io one row being opposite
tbe open spaces in the next, so that it
will be practically impossible for a vessel
passing over tbe mine to avoid touching
one or more of them. Of course, they
will all be connected with an electric
cable, extending to a casemate on tbe
shore, and can be so arranged as to be
exploded automatically when touched,
or so thst on a vessel touching one ol
them the fact will be aououoced elec
trically in the torpedo casemate. Any
onejof them exploding under a ship
would effectually dispose of her. When
these torpedoes are planted in the
Columbia they will effectually prevent
any hostile era fi from coming lo Portland
or evon Attoria. 'regnian.
MIDDLE OF THE ROAD
April 1 6th.
Baklii City, April 17. Tbe tight be
tween the genuint and fusion populists
is on and the former evidently do not
propose to be swallowed op by the demo
crats. John C. Luce, of Grant county,
middle-of the-road candidate lor govern
or, was given a reception last night at
Bust's opera bouse, on the occasion of
tbe first campaign speech this year.
Tbe speaker gave a full history ot the
Peunoyer-deniocrat-populist fusion deal
for spoils, showiDg that populist princi
ples and voliog strength were igoored
32,000 populia votes receiving only oue
politicaljoffice ; while 1J.000 democratic
voles and the silver-republican vote
took the remainder. He claimed that
the Chicago promise 1 1 withdraw Sewall
and endorse Watson was not kept nor
intended to be kept; and that Uctics in
tended to destroy the people's party in
1S00 were also employed at the recent
Portland couvention by l'enuoyer aud
his push. Mention of the name of II. .
Courtney for congress from the second
district, nominated here yesterday by
the regular people's party, el icilsd en
thusiastic applause. Tbis beiug the
home of the fusion candidate for gov
ernor, the fact of an enthusiastic recep
tion to Luce is noteworthy. Luce re
turned home today, to be present at Ibe
Grant county populist eouveutiou, April

To my Fuil.nps:
1 thank you very much tor your
devotion, as expressed in your requests
both verbally and in writing, that I be
come an independent candidate for
county assessor. I thought that I had
settled tbut once and for ever, io last re
publicau couventi ou. No I owe the Re
publican l'arty, more gratitude than to
do such a thing. I am a republican from
principle, uot tor mere gaiu, I am in
favor ot u higher tarill", to protect our
manufactures and laborers. I favor a
high heal tax against tbe pauper
element of Europe, Asia and Afriea,
Our country will fill up fast enough by
natural causes. Let tbe boardes of Asia,
return to Japan, Cbiua or soy other
country from . which they came. We
uont waul navery in any Kim iu our
beloved laud. Give us a dollar, alwaa,
as now, that has a y alue of ltO ceuts.
No I say again no independent cauditate
iu miue, but stand by Ihe old parly (hat
saved the county from ruin. Ihe parly
that is the poor mans friend.
