PRE8ERVE THE TIMBER.
.'V. The announcement that the..- Federal
' Oovemment proposes to set aside- a Um
bar reserve In Eastern Oregon will create
oppositloa. However,, it la commendable.
The future'' climatic and meteorological
conditions of the state require auch re-
nr. and that It be set aside at once.
It really should not be necessary
elaborate auch a proportion. The factJ
ahould by- thla time be familiar to all
Intelligent people. It ahould not be neces
sary to cite' the fact that removal of
' forests Influences climate and affects
water supplies, and alters the entire slt
" nation In" ail respects that concern beat
. and cold. 1
- These facta ahould long ago have Bee-
' fixed In the public mind, as well as tha
t a given quantity of stanoing timber will
be exhausted If there be no measures to
compel Its preservation.
It Is In recognition of a well settled
truth that thla Eastern Oregon forest re-
eerve has i been decided upon by the gov
Perhaps the best Illustration of the Idea
.- la found In Oermairy. ' .Years ago, the
timber supply was practically exhausted
and "It waa discovered that serious
drouth and Hoods resulted. The govern
ment took steps to compel restitution.
and reaulred that a timber was cut
from, the forests youn trees must be
set out , The result was that the timber
was renewed, and thBftdrouths and floods
occurred no more than whelk the condl
. tio'ns of nature existed previously to the
; Inroads of the lumberman.
Numerous Instances could be cited. It
I desirable that Eastern Oregon be saved

f. melodrama is o be written at Seat
le with two artists there, and James J.
Montague, of the New York Journal, aa
collaborators. At least auch an inference
to to be drawn from a recent letter from
Seattle sent by Mr, Montague, who has
"lately signed a contract with the big
Gotham paper to go to the metropolis and
continue the good work there that he
baa don here for some years.
The melodrama is to tell the story of
Tracy and Merrill, and Is to be produced
upon the stage In the chief city of Waah
infton state. It will run more hundred
night than ever before drama ran. It
will run at a winning pace, too, and "9.
v R.; O." signs will be needed from the
time when first the curtain rises until'
It has fallen upon the last blood-curdling
. scene that shall have been enacted.
For,' Tracy is tha one thing just now
that fill uie public eye, albeit In that
he la in the public eye only In imagina
tion, and does not put In a very tangi
ble occupancy of that popular optic.
Every newspaper in the United States
has had Tracy featured on the first pages
ever since he demonstrated that he Could
, keep cut of the hands of the people of
two states. And, with so general adver
tisement, anything that bears the brand
of, Tracy will do well:
However, The Journal has a sugges-
1 tion, offering It gratuitously. ' Let Tracy
' be signed for the title role, and let him
Illustrate his military methods upon the
stage, and then will Lincoln J. Carter
and his plays have been eclipsed. Tracy
in the cast would Insure patronage. .The
play writers cannot afford to throw'
. away this suggestion, although It come
.'from one who Is outsici of the realm

' BUREAU OF INFORMATION.

j McKlnncy of the' Harrtmao line and
forwarded by the Chamber of Commerce,

result beneneia&y, -' It Is noticeable that
'the people are awakening- to the needs of

the establishment ef a bureau of informs'
tion, with money1 appropriated front the
State Treasury to support It However
clt liens may view - the . proposition to
create such an Institution, there Is no
doubt that Mr. Kllllngsworth baa spoken
truly when he asserts that Oregon needs
very much, the dissemination of accurate
Information regarding Its resources and
The O. R. N. Industrial agent, ft. C.
Judson. has heretofore been practically
the only bureau of information that was
actively at work along thla line, but it Is
not to be expected that a whole state
shall turn over to the agent ot a railroad
a work of such atupendous proportions.
The Idea of the present movement is
fliat each .portion of the state shall bear
its share ot the expense, and collect
facts relating to the advantages to be
gained by those who come to this state
to look (or permanent locations.
The suggestion of Mr. Kniingsworth is !
quite timely, and deserves consideration
by every one. j
THE EVENING PAPER FOR, PORT
Here is a proposition to the people of
Portland regarding the better evening
newspaper for Portland people to read:
Tha Journal la independent of all other
publications; has no string attached to
It, and Its existence assures that there
will be no monopoly of newspaper ex
pression In this city and state by any In
terest that shall have absolute control
of all general exploitation of views or
statement of fasts, political, commercial
and social. In short, It solves the prob
lem of that objectlonal absolutism that
has heretofore created a virtual news
paper trust In Portland and the state at
large. .. .
The Journal believes that there ta
reason why Portlandars especially may
better read The Journal, when buying an
evening paper, and that reason Is:
Competitive evening papers here will in
the nature -of- the-ease be either -reprinta
of morning papers, or. If anything appear
in those competitive evening papers. It
will certainly appear In the morning pa
per the next day. In order to secure
impartial view of facts and events in
short, to hear both stdesMt will there
fore be necessary to read The Journal.
There w(U be in it nothing that bears
the stamp ot control by some other pub
lication that directs its utterances and of
which It is In large part a reproduction.
The Journal is absolutely ' free from all
CITY OFFICERS' RESPONSIBILITY
It Is fortunate that there has been a
tendency to place the responsibility for
the control and punishment of vice where
It belongs upon the shoulders of those
who were elected by the city, Instead ot
upon those who were elected by the larger
sub-dlvlslon of governmental authority.
the county. It is manifestly the province
of the city rather than the county, aa
The Journal has already set forth at
There will be no dispute over the prop
osition by any well-informed person. . It
is obviously consistent with the proper
conception of law, both statutory and
It is to the good of Portland that dls
cusslon has ensued, and that there is a
disposition to discover means whereby
practioal reforms may be accomplished.
Difficulties lie in the way of those who
would do this. But that they are Imper
ative goes without tha saying. The
arousal of public sentiment on the sub
ject la well-timed.
SELECT MEN ABOVE REPROACH
It Is announced that It la the intention
of the President to select men of known
probity as members of the Isthmian Ca
nal Commission. If he succeeds In doing
this, and the men In whom he places his
confidence prove to be above reproach.
then will the American people be more
inclined to believe that the action of the
recent Congress anent the canal was not
a political job.
At this time, there is a well defined sus
picion that there were some "niggers in
the woodpile" from which was selected
the material for that bill. It was bruited
that Mr. Hanna, ' as the father of the
Panama measure was not far from certain
Interested persons who might profit from
While the people have confidence in Mr.
Roosevelt, they have not yet learned to
trust Mr. Hanna implicitly, and there
fore It is that they suspect the sincer
ity of the movers for the Panama deal.
Good men on the commission will make
much difference in the public opinion on
The Journal believes that Mr. Chamber
lain is competent to select a successor
for the office of District Attorney, when
he himself shall enter the gubernatorial
chair next January. There are several
applicants, and from them he will pick
a good man. His judgment han always
been good heretofore, and there is no.
reason to expect that he will fall In this
instance. The Journal looks for the
naming of a proper man for the place,
and taluks that he know a little more
about it than any one else.
An Interesting fact has been brought to
light regarding th sweatshops that the
better grade of clothing Is made there
rather than the Cheaper. Cheap clothing
Is made In well-lighted and regulated fac
tories, while the better grade is made by

R. Alexander, one of the most promi

here from hla home in Pendleton, a guest
at the Imperial. Mr. Alexander speaks a
trifle boastfully, yet no doubt truthfully,
of the material prosperity that has come
to his Dart ot tha Inland Empire. "We
think that Umatilla County Is the heav
lest producer of actual wealth per capita
of all counties Iti Oregon," said he, '
he stopped for 4 moment In the midst ot
a chat with his old friend. Phil Met-
schan, who controls the destinies of the'
Imperial Inn, "and we have the figure
to prove it. It la not a case of 'flgurea

but it has been demonstrated that our
county actually raises more stuff that
sells for gold for Shipment out from
the county to Other markets than any
other county on the Pacific Coast. 1 rea
lise that I am risking my reputation for
veracity when I make so radical an as
sertion, but I have a few dollars In my

PIONEER COAL BURNER.
J. W. Boals, of Mayger. was rn town
last evening, enjoying a well-deserved
vacation from his work of coal burning,
Mr. Boais has been the source of supply
for nearly all the charcoal consumed by
the canneries of the lower Columbia for
the paat JO years, and is regarded by the
packer as One of the most important
elements which contribute to their suc
cess. To The Journal Mr. Boals re

JUDGE DOAN SEES LIGHT.
Judge J. B. Doan, of Columbia County,
accompanied by Mrs. Doan, after spend
in the day in the city, departed for their
home at Rainier last evening. The Judge,
who has served In his official capacity for
over six years, and who has always man
ifested keen interest in' the successful
conduct of the business affairs- of the
county, while regretting that his county
has beon victimised and subjected to the
heavy expense of prosecuting, and execut
ing a character for murder, enters upon
the work of replacing the county to its
former good financial condition with
teal that warrants the statement that the
loss will soon be retrieved.
"The extraordinary, good condition of
all matters of a commercial nature,'
raid tha Judge, "warrants the belief that
we will soon recover from the loaa sus
tained. All of our enterprises ara ot such
a character that It takes more than
setback like murder trial expenses to
Jaunt us. Everything Is business thrift
and progress with ub, and! we are going
forward In a satisfactory way."
NORTHERN MINING COUNTRY.
L. A. Richards, of Kettle Falls, Is
guest at the Perkins. Mr, Richards comes
from a section- of the- country of which
not a great deal la now said, the excite
ment of mining in his region having
worn off and the people settled down to
the real work of developing the mineral
properties. Kettle Falls Is on the ex
treme upper Columbia, only a few miles
below- the crossing of the Red Mountain
railroad, on its course to Rossland, B. C,
"At our point," said Mr, Richards, "is
where the Great Northern is expected
to cross the Columbia, headed for Re
public, one of the best mining camps in
the Northwest. When the road reaches
the camp there will be great opportuni
ties for the profitable investment of cap
Ital in all lines of mercantile pursuits
That portion of Washington la forging
to the front very rapidly. We have not
only vast mineral wealth but our agri
cultural possibilities are also very great.
We claim to have more and better op.

great commercial activity than any other

pected anything until the explosion came.
Then It was discovered that he waa main
taining another establishment and a wo
man, was1 etnbezstln the government'
money' Intruiited to him, and was thor
oughly 'bad. He fled. He disappeared;
dropped out entirely. All efforts to dis
cover bia whereabouts proved futile. He
was generally supposed to have gone to
South America or Africa. Finally he was
believed to be- dead.
Yeara afterward he turned up in New
York city as the proprietor of a little old
second-hand book shop. He was so chang
ed -that his best friend would hardly know
him. From being a fashionable smart
young officer, he was now an old broken
gray-bearded man. The law took Its
course; he went to the penitentiary, and
finally he died.
SEQUEL TO THE) HOWOATE AFFAIR.
Now comes the sequel. At the time of
the scandal the daughter was just about
to make her debut. She waa young", beau
tiful, and accomplished. Her father1
disgrace and flight left her and her moth
er with no means for support. Friends
proved scarce, and there was a ion time
when the two supported themselves by
the quiet sale of a book or a piece of
furniture from the house. Finally the
daughter secured a place In the govern
ment service at a very small salary. But
ptlll the mother and daughter appeared
In most straitened circumstances. For
yeara they dragged on an existence which
was very close to starvation. Many peo
ple wondered what became of the salary
which the young woman earned. "
Twenty years- elapsed before the secret
was disclosed. From the beginning the
daughter never wavered In her fidelity to
her father. She was In communleatTon
with him during all the years of his ex
ue. csne sent nearly hair her meager
earnings to aid In his support; . for the
book shop was a little more than a blind.
Then, In addition to the money which she
contributed to her father's support. Miss
Howgate kept up the premium on a small
life Insurance which her father carried.
Not long ago Howgate died. Now be

the faith which Inspires the Burgeols In

vival of the old conditions, the fortunes
of Bruges, once the mart of Europe, may
be repaired. The new spirit first made
Itself manifest In an' effort to. revive
local arta and industries, and the result
has been so far good. This is not all.
It Is not forgotten that at the zenith of
ita greatness Bruges was a. great seaport
largely through neglect the channel was
allowed to slit up, and, of course, the
