It is proper that ittepa Iiave been
taken to plaeu on record tho idory
of thu Oregon pioneer while tome
of thoin nro still among us. Their
experiences, told in their own
words, will he deemed of priccluw
worth by succeeding generations
who will feel grateful to tlionoulio
luid thu foresight to collect such
interesting nnrrativos. In ,Mon
tnua like work has been done with
much success. Many htories of
adventure which concern the entire
Northwest havo been preserved
through the eilorts of nu historical
society which has also a valuable
collection of old ncwsjMcr files.
It is u safe prediction tlint tho
woit wont got imicli from the pres

gnucu of the "billion-dollar con
gress" will have tho tendency to
ilrivo legislation to the opposite
extreme of )enuriousues and to
put olf tho necessities of the newer
htates with potato peelings and
cheese paring. UchMcs, these
newer states, wliono necessities are
greatest, are of little coueiicucu
in the matter of president making,
which will bo the grand object of

on thu thirtieth ballot. There
were live candidates in the strug

Mills, of Tomih, closely following,
Springer, of Illinois, with 17 otes
and McMillan, Hatch and Stevens
with u scattering vote sullieiently

The report of Postmaster Gen
eral Wanuiiiaker, which has just
been submitted to thu president, is
a document uf more than usual in
terest, and deserving of a more ex
tended notice than cnu be alloled
to it in the present issue of this
journal. Mr. Ay"anaumkcr rceoui
ineuds, among other things, the
adaptation of the telephone, as well
us tho telegraph, lo tlio jKintal sys
tem, advocates the adoption of a
one cent rale for postage, urges
thu establishment of postal deposi

adoption of pneumatic tube sys

There was considerable- excite
ment in San Antonio, Texas, over
the arrest of the grand jury. There
is a line of $"() hanging over eauh
member, imposed by ,1 udgo King,
who hold they were in contempt in
serving au attachment on him
whilu ho was on the bench. The
attorney acting in their behalf left
heiu with a petition to thu supremo
court, in session at Tyler, for a
writ of habeas corpus. In thu
meautiinu tho giand jnr men aie
in jail. An indignation meeting
was held by tlmno in s iitjintliy
with the jury. Most of tho law
yers say the action of tho judge is
correct, that the grand jury had
no right to summon a judyu on the
bench to appear as a ninicfuutor.

secluded lives that their presence
is hardly known outside of their
community. They are prompt ran
and conduct services and live after
their peculiar fashion anil their
creed. There are about 100 of
them, and they aru lioneM, kind
people, and so sociable that the
life of tho colony, although the
farms are separate and distinct, it
is us ono harmonious family. Their
dialect is South German, the same
as that of their ancestors more
than -00 years ago. The women
wear black (Junker hoods and a
simple dress of ono piece, mid a
kerchief gracefully crossed over tho
bosom. Tho men let their hair

THE HEPPNER WAREHOUSE
Has been enlarged to accommodate
the increasing business. The wools
of 'this section which accumulate at
Heppner, attract all the leading
Western buyers to that point, and
make it the best market in which
the grower can dispose of his clip.
Last season over 1,000,000
pounds of wool was sold in Hep
pner at prices which averaged the
grower more clear money than was
realized by sales of similar wools
in other western markets more dis
tant from the manufacturing cen
ters ol the East.
Teamsters charges advanced on
written orders. Cash advanced on
wool in storage.
