"Doan'e Ointment proved its healing
qualities several years ago when I used
and told in a published statement the
great relief and' cure I obtained from
it. I used it for a breaking out around
my mouth and lips which had troubled
me for a number of years, despite all
I could do to get rid of it. My lips
would crack and become sore when cold
weather set in, and this lasted until it
got warm again. I was finally induced
to try Doan's Ointment, procuring it
at Charles Rodger's drug store. In a
short time after beginning to apply it
I was cured of the annoyance and I
have been entirely free from it since."

STRAIGHT SHOTS ON
TARDY, BUT TRENCHANT COM
MENT IN RELATION TO OREGON'S
FOREMOST PUBLIC IMPROVE
MENTS BY A STUDENT.
The subjoined contribution is a bit
late in reaching these columns, con
sidering the fact that a general truce
has been declared up and down the
valley upon the subject matter of the
letter at hand, but there is so much
"meat" in the article and it deals so
plainly and fairly with the great issue.
that the Astorian gives it the wide pub
licity it deserve, despite the tardiness
involved and the peace it may momen
"To the Editor:
"I have followed the controversy be
tween ou and the Oregonian as to the
need of deeper water at the entrance
to the Columbia river- and was a good
deal amused at what you thought the
complete if sudden conversion of the
Oregonian to your idea of putting every
cent that the U. S. government can
spare into the work of completing the
jetties at the mouth of the river, and
cutting out all other appropriations for
the different schemes of improvement
in the inland rivers, until the jetties
are a success.
"The reason of the Oregoninn's sud
den conversion to that idea waa not
that you had converted him or that
he was willing to adopt your very sen
sible and practical suggestions, but that
Col. Roessler, tbe U. S. engineer in
charge of the Oregon district, had ex
pressed himself as favoring, and there
fore likely to recommend to his super
ior officer", the absolute necessity of
large appropriations for bar work, even
if no money could be appropriated, or
spared, for the up-river schemes. It is
something new for an engineer officer
to so radically differ with the Oregon
ian and have the courage to publicly
say so. We all know, and have known
for many years, that Uncle Sam was
throwing away money owing to tbe
manner, in which tbe work was being
done on the jetty, for the simple rea
son that the trestle work was pushed
out far beyond the point where it could
be sufficiently protected by rock fill
ing, with the money at his disposal,
the result being that the winter storms
would carry . away the trestle fop long
distances, necessitating the buililing of
new ones on one side of the old works,
as just enough rock had been dumped,
rendering it impracticable to drive new
piling on the old line, and this has
been done many times, with disastrous
consequences to the new appropriations
as they were made available; in fact
the appropriations would be spent in
repairing and getting ready to extend
tbe work. The last appropriation was,
very sensibly, spent in rock filling and
some repairing, and still the rock is not
up to low water mark for a consider
able distance, and therefore has little
or no beneficial effect on the currents.
"It is certainly refreshing and en
eouraging to find a man like Col. Roess
ler in charge of the government work,
practical and conscientious; and who
evidently does not intend to waste any
of the government money without at
least protesting. I hope he will stay
to finish the jetties.
"When the Columbia river bar is
rough and 'breaking,' it is better for all
Vessels to lay at anchor inside, no mat
ter if there were 40 feet of water on
the bar. Ship owners and insurance
men are glad to have their ships safely
at anchor inside a harbor during a
"There are lots of bars on the river
between Astoria and Portland, but the
waves do not "break' on them; only
vessels, once in a while, run a danger
of breaking in two, the latest instance
being the Bteamer 'Thyra' last week.
I would be pleased if the editor of the
Oregonian would occasionally write, not
for the benefit of foreign or outside
readers, but for home consumption only.
Does he think that It will help the case
any or get more money from Uncle Sam
or influence the foreign ship Owners'
Asoe iation to cut out the differential
in freight charters against Portland by
hU taking a lling and sneer at As
toria and the bar and the bar pilots,
etc? He knows better. Certainly more
than the very good and enterprising
Portlander who waa down with the del
egation to the jetty last Sat unlay, who
noticed a ship lying at anchor- In the
lower bay, the tide being on the ebb.
To his Inquiry if 'the ship was loaded
and ready for sea,' he was informed that
he was. 'Why i she headed up the
river then; if she is going to sea!'
This Is a true tale, and I tell it now
with the greatest good nature, but it
is too good to keep.
"I think all our Portland friends en
joyed the trip, however, and we were
glad to see them, and hope they will
all come again and familiarise them
selves more with ships and shipping,
and the condition and obstacles to 1
met and overcome by the united efforts
of all concerned.
