No one will deny that the Oregonlan,
while more than a year behindhand In
getting started, has lately done cred
itable work in pushing Portland's de
mand for a share of the government's
transport business. It Is difficult, how
ever, to see the applicability of gome
of the arguments the Oregonlan uses.
The government certainty stands In no
need of Information as to the condition
of the river channel between Astoria
and Portland. These facts have been
repeatedly promulgated by the gov
ernment's own agents and the depth
of water from Portland to the sea Is
plainly laid down on the charts sup
plied to every naval vessel. No sur
vey has every been made of the Co
lumbia river or any of its confluents
except by government engineers and
out of funds appropriated by the gov
ernment. Thus the government has
paid for all Information there Is extant
on the subject and is In possession of
all it is possible for any one to know
about it. Only a few weeks ago Major
Fisk filed his last report with the war
department, wherein he stated the
maximum depth of the Columbia and
Willamette rivers between the Astoria
Beaport and Portland at 19 feet. What
use, therefore, Is it for the Oregonlan
to multiply words about the channel's
depth; nothing that paper can assert
will rub out these official figures of
the government. The grounding of
the steamer Columbia a few days ago
above Tongue point, fairly In the chan
nel, with the experience of the ship
Standard at the mouth of the Willam
ette, on her four days' voyage down
the river, speaks more forcibly than
'any assertion the Oregonlan can make
as to the size of the ships that can be
accommodated In the Portland chan
nel. But suppose the government
needed Instruction In this direction,
what light could it possibly obtain
from the Oregonlcn's table showing the
DEPTH of vessels which have made
the trip down from Portland? The
question of navigating the Columbia
river has to do with a vessel's DRAFT;
not her DEPTH. The depth of a ship
is no better criterion of the water she
may draw than the measurement of
her mast would be. The Great East
ern was a deeper ship than the Ocean
ic Is, yet the Great Eastern drew
seven feet less water than the Ocean
ic does. What bearing, then, does the
Oregonian's parade of the 23-foot depth
of a few Irregular tramps, employed
by the railroad combination to carry
cut the fiction of the "Oriental" line
from Portland and thus scare oft com
petition with Seattle on the Asiatic
commerce, have to do with determin
ing the practicability of loading gov
ernment transports at Portland? Does
n't the Oregonlan know that many of
the Atlantic steamers carry a depth
of over 60 feet on a draft ranging from
za to 3U reetr Juuged by the same
rule of proportion, what does the Ore
gonian's "argument" thus make out
the draft of Portland's so-called Ori
ental liners to be? Surely the Oregon
lan does not expect to fool the govern
ment with any such clap trap as this.
No, the Oregonlan can have but one
object In publishing these pretended
btatistlcs relating to the depth of wa
ter In the Portland channel. It Ib to
Inflame the narrow and non-nautical
minds of Portland people with the
pretence that Shatter and the war de
partment are hired to ship soldiers
and war supplies from other ports.
There are plenty of good reasons why
Oregon should have a share of the
transport business. Plenty of good
reasons, Indeed, why some of the
transports that can really get to Port
land should be loaded there. To send
the Thirty-fifth regiment to Manila,
In fact, by any other route than the
Columbia river would be a fraud on
the government. The Oregonlan Is the
bcll-whether organ of the railroad
combination. That paper surely knows
that the true reason why govern
ment transports haven't yet been load
ed at Portland Is because the railroads
are under agreement to send that bus
iness elsewhere. It Isn't the govern
ment that discriminates against the
Columbia river route to the sea; It Is
the railroads, under an Infamous com
pact which limits Portland to the func
tion of an Inland wheat market, and
throws general commerce of all sorts
to the ports of Puget sound and San
Francisco. It Is to be feared the Ore
gonlan would not be now found agi
tating government transport business
at Portland but for an uprising among
Portland people. The government has
been sailing transports from the Pa
cific coast for over a year; why has
the Oregonlan not put In a demand for
this business long ago? Is It because
the Oregonlan Is controlled by the rail
roads and dares not discuss any pub
lic question which tends to expose the
deals under which the entire trans
portation business of the Northwest
has been parceled out among the mem
bers of the railroad combination?
Nearly al! women "m
forward to the o il
of motherhood with
much dread and anxitrtv
that only after the baby t
satcly arrived and nude
warm little place for himself
in the mother's heart, does
she fairly realize that it was
indeed a good angel who
brought this wee nestling to
bricrhten and sweeten her lite.
Women who are approaching motherhood
with a sense of fear and solicitude, or in a
weakened condition, need the
help of that marvelous " Favorite Prescrin
tion." invented by Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief
consulting physician of the Invalids' Hotel
and Surfrical Institute, Buffalo, N. V., and
designed expressly to restore healthy vigor
to the delicate feminine structure involved
in motherhood. It talces away all of the
danger and most of the pain attendant up
on motherhood, and confers on the baby
that lusty hardihood which is a joy to a
mother s heart.
An Ohio lady, Mrs. Lefa Hoffmire. of Claring.

swelled badly. I read of Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription, and thought I would try it. I took
six bottles, and when my baby was born I was
not sick at all after I was out of labor, which
lasted oulv a short time. In times Drevioua, la
