Chicago, May . After many futile
attempts, the western railroads have
suceeded In completing a final settle
ment of the grain rate war between
Missouri river points and Chicago. All
have agreed to make proportionate
rates from all Missouri river points
and have decided through rates from
Nebraska points to Chicago shall not
be lower than the combined locals, ex

the latter being a concession to the
Chicago & Northwestern.
The rates on grain from Omaha and

those from Kansas City. Heretofore

to forward copies of these resolutions
to the governor of this slate and to
the representatives of Oregon In con

preservation of the salmon Industry
through the passage of measures re
ferred to In these resolutions."
Mr. Rosenberg says that the Fruser
river's stock of salmon has been al
most depleted through the operation
of nxea gear, and that fully 75 per
cent of the hatchery output has been
eliminated through this class of gear.
At the spawning grounds there are
few fish from which to take eggs, and
the plants have been unable to oper
ate until after the traps and wheels
have tlnlshed operations. He regards
the action of the Oregon Federation
of Labor as a long step In the right
platform Is a clear and concise state
ment of democratic principle, and
failure to reaffirm It at our next na

to a return to corporation rule, for

Delegates for All Conventions
Should Be in Sympathy With
Kansas City Platform. ,
W. J. Bryan Is hot on the trail of
the democratic reorganizes. He will
bend every effort to keep them from
controlling the 6t. Louis convention.
and with this end in view Is asking
the assistance of his friends all over
the country. During the week many
Astoria democrats have received let
ters from the famous Nebraskan urg
ing their co-operation In the effort to
put the reorganlzersn the shelf, and
It is evident from the tone of Mr.
Bryan's letter that he means business.
The letters are sent out for the pur
pose of Increasing the circulation of
the Commoner, Mr. Bryan's paper, in
which he will make a most active fight
against those with the gold-standard
tendencies. The Interesting feature of
Mr. Bryan's letter is that he demands

nominee. A climax came at the end

Hearst and Parker delegates. In which

The question being debated was the
substitution, of the minority report of
the committee on resolutions for the
majority report. The former report
favored an unpledged delegation, the
latter a pledge for Parker and the unit
rule. Personalities were bundled back
and forth, the attack on Governor Wal
ler accompanying charges that he had
deserted the party in 1898. Much of
the actual debate between the chief
participants was unheard In the up
roar, but their actions could be seen.
They were forced almost Into personal
contact by the delegates crowdlnj
