of the elements that their private domain
' had been Invaded by man.
' . However, beyond the loss of a jew hats
and some minor trappings, nothing
daunted the hardy mountaineers, and
with the War cry of the Maaamas, on
ward and upward they went.
Occasionally there was a short stop for
breath (easily found) and a bite of re
. freshmen t, and then still upward they
went until 1 o'clock and 15 minutes found
them at the top and "excelsior" was
. the word which found expression with the
' many glad hearts, some of whom for the
first time had attained a mountain sum
mit. But It was cold and no place for a long
top,, and to the grandest sport of all
wan yet ahead that la, the sliding down.
Quickly opening the box' they carried,
' writing their .names on a paper, deposlt
' log them therein, then turning their faces
toward the camp at timber line, they
' yelled, "Slide, Kelly, slide!"

so good to mortal man.
Those who Were to make the ascent
Monday piled the returned party with
questions as to "how and when," and
many were the jokes made of those who
had lost some' parts of their mountain
But the last and largest portion was
yet to look "upward, and onward." Mon

Heretofore Judge George held the palm
for attaining the highest altitude, now,
however, it had to be yielded to the tow-

CAESAR HAS THECOIN

Julius Caesar, the colored philosopher
of Portland, holds in haughty disdain all
thoae who are so unfortunate as to be
compelled to toll for a livelihood.
Last night he exhibited a gold coin and
a handfull of stiver to a group of ac
quaintances and delivered the following
"If I interpret your looks aright you
all wondah how I accumulated these dol

your edification right now that it was not

"You say you are a gambler, Julius.

"I'se glad to heah dat question ex

ADDING AIRBRAKE EQUIPMENT
The Oregon Water Power & Railway
Company is equipping Its coaches and
trailers with airbrakes. A small electric
motor beneath the car compresses the air,
which Is kept at 70 pounds to the square

automatic cut-off intervenes so that the
pressure Is not Increased. When It falls

these improved attachments shal have

Marshall and Whitman.
Professor W. I. Marshall, of Chicago.
is in the city for the purpose of gath
ering data for the preparation of an ar
ticle or series or articles to disprove that
Marcus Whitman saved Oregon. Prof.
Marshall has devoted many years study
to the subject of the -discovery and set
tlement of the Northwest country, in
regard to the matter the professor said:
"I have been examining the books if
the Oregon Historical Society, and what
I found there only confirms what I have
always contended, that the idea that Mr.
Whitman saved Oregon is absurd, and
long before he reached the East the
great American statesman had practi
cally decided to hold this territory.
"From here I will go to Puget Sound,
where I sm satisfied I will find informa
tion that will be of great value to my
publication. I am certain that I can find
an abundance of evidence that will prac
tically quiet the controversy."

Crops Are Damaged
and Millions of Fresh
Water Fish Killed.
(Journal Special Service.)
NEW ORLEANS, July M.-'Tha invasion
of extra salt water which has 'come upon
the Gulf Coast of Louisiana in the last
month is a very serious matter. The loss
already Inflicted ' will mount , up well In
the millions. '
The salt water flood Is confined largely
to the streams lying between the mouth
of the Mississippi and the Sabine. All
these are ordinarily fresh water streams.
They and their tributaries have played a
leading part in the development of South
The fresh water is pumped into irri
gating canals and used in the cultivation
of rice. More than $12,000,000. mainly New
York capital, has been invested In these
irrigating companies and It has proved a
profitable Investment, both to the com
panies and the country.
The salt water visitation first showed
Itself about a month ago, when the ir
rigation companies were called on for an
extra supply of water. After the water
had been pumped Into some rice fields It
was discovered that it was eajty and
scalded the rice. From the rice being
thus scalded and from lack of fresh
water for Irrigation the rice crop has
been seriously Injured.
It has not been necessary to row or sail
out for redflsh and other salt water varie
ties as is usually the case, but they have
been found Immediately along shore.
Flounders, trout, redflsh, sheeph&id, anl
bass were caught In abundance. The
Fourth of July Ashing was the best ever
known and nearly all the fishermen
caught more than they could bring
home. ' v
Then, too, queer fish from the depths
of the Gulf were found. These Included
devilfish. 30 feet wide from wing to wins.
Then came the plague or fishes, which
has lately caused so much trouble. The
fresh water. fl' - far inland as
they could tp escape , the salt water and
then died. The Streams where this has
happened and the land near' them ars
polluted by the dead fish. It Is feared
that the unsanitary conditions thus
caused may lead to widespread sickness.
In Plaquemines and Jefferson parishes
millions on millions of crabs have died
because the water has been too salty.
Shrimp also have perished In numbers
beyond calculation, and for the first time
in the history of New Orleans, which Is
the headquarters of shrlmpdom, vending
thousands of tons of shrimp, canned,
dried or powdered, to Europe and AsIa,
and supplying a large part of the great
demand In China, It Is almost Impossible
to secure this popular dish.
Popular belief attributes the salt water
visitation to the long drought followed
by southerly winds, although those who
like the marvelous would have the erup
tion of Mont Pelee and the earthquakes
of Mexico and Central America connected
with the disturbance of the sea.
The salt water visitation has accomp
lished at least one good result besides im
proving the fishing. It has killed out the
troublesome water hyacinth.

J. T. Bond of Greenvlfle, Tex., accom
panied by his two daughters, arrived in
Portland yesterday, and Is being enter
tained by J. 8. Beall, an old acquaintance
of this city. ,
Until 15 years ago Mr. Bond was one
of the most celebrated professional tight

learned the difficult and dangerous art
under the tutorship of J. T. Blondln, the
first tight-rope walker who ever gave

Streev car magnate and mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, proved that the lecal
gas companies of that city had bribed some members of the City Council
to defeat an attempt to pipe natural gas into Cleveland. Mayer Johnson
has announced that he is after the Democratic nomination for president.
Blondln's name was a household word In
the Vnlted Stutes and many of the old
Inhabitants of the Eastern States yet re
call his deeds' of daring over river falls,
with nothing but a slender rope betw.en
him and certain destruction should he
lose his balance.
Mr. Bond learned the business when
ut 12 yearsiof age. This was In 1860, and
it was not long until he gave promise of
even eclipsing his instructor. Nine years
later he was giving an exhibition at Ual-
ton, Ga., which Mr. Beall. of tills uty,
attended. The rope extended across onf
of the muln streets from the tops of the
buildings, and wus 41 feet high. This
came almost proving his last act. Just
us the performance was about at an end,
and the man of Iron nerves wa.) inuklug

play, nne of th- men looking after the
guy ropes got careless, and allowed them
to become slack. This loosened the main
rope and with a lerk It began to pv.-it:g.

Mr. Bond Is getting well advanced in
years and has retired from the dangerous
business of rope walking. He, owns a

NEW YORK. July 25. Deer laying baa
already begun in the Adrlondacks, more)
than' six weeks before the sport is legal.
The matter is practically regulated b
certain local customs.
It is well understood throughout the)
Adirpndacks that many deer are shot In
July before the legal season opens, thai
many more are shot after tha season)
closes, and that deer hunting at night
' " "r. wain-s u euui
I "ion If not a general practice. It is)
equally well understood that deer shall
not be killed many days before July 1.
and that does especially shall be spared
at that season.
The sportsman spares the deer so lonaf
as the interests of the young may b
endangered by shooting, and so long as
the meat Is not In first-rate condition foi
eating. As to the law limiting the num.
ber of deer that a hunter may shoot iq
a season, it Is generally disregarded.
It Is well that the code of the hunteg
prohibits Bhooting before July 1, for the
deer are sluggish, almost stupid In thi
spring, and the Adirondack spring is onlfl
well developed in June. After the lon4
winter of Ice, snow and sparse vegeta
tlon, the deer are mad for fresh green
food, and their nrst hunger is still un
appeased when the middle of June ar
They are then encountered greedily
feeding on the young pads of yellow lilies
which choke many Adirondack streams
This Is especially true of the young deer,
that have not yet learned to recognize)
man as an enemy. '
Some outward prepense is maintained o
observing the law even after July 1 and
a favorite trick of hunters shooting -out
of season is to secure the rifle in the)
bottom of the boat, and have the latter
carried, as usual, keel up. The guide
moves on with the concealed weapon
while the hunter follows, conspicuously
displaying a trout; rod.
Deer hunting with the jack latern at
night is always unlawful, but much prao
ticed. Many tricks are employed to con
ceal the fact that a hunter is armed
with a jacking lantern. Often the iacW
is concealed In the bow of the boat. ' ,
One hunter used to Bally forth in a sills
hat.. In this he carried a little bull's-eya
lantern. By pulling a string he could
remove a portion of thle hat Immediately
In front of the light and' shoot, and aa
quickly conceal it. "
Perhaps the meanest trick . known to
hunters is the artificial salt lick. A quan
tity of rock salt is sprinkled on and about
a high stump, and the deer, learning;
where the delicacy lies, visit it singly;
and in small troops. A salt lick onca
established, the hunter hides In a con
venlent tree and picks off his victim.
The sunset shot Is the favorite with
those who violate the game laws In July.
The deer as yet have not been frightened
by the presence of many hunters, so that
it Is possible to And them feeding in tha,
streams at dusk.
