OUR MILITIA AG A IX.
An editorial in this paper a day or two
ago" concerning the Oregon militia
caused some adverse coiun'C-iii, ' the
ground being taken that ther.j is not
now, and can never be any use far ths
militia as far at least as the Indian? itr'i
concerned. As far as the Indian in
this immediate neighborhood are con
cerned this is probably true; but the
dispatches to-day show that at Pocatella
trouble is feared, and they also show
that the Messiah craze, or the bad feel
iug between the Indians and whites
which it creates, at least, is spreading to
all the Indian tribes. Sarah Winne-
muocca wrote some time ago that run
hers had been sent to the Piutes, and
there is no doubt but that one of these
same runners is now dancing with the
Indians here, or has been of for the last
few days. We do not anticipate any
serious trouble with the Indians in Ore
gon, but at the same tune we believe
that the militia should be armed and
equipped, so that they can be placed in
the field on short uotiee. Just now there
ib a small shadow of war with England,
and it might become necessary to pro
tect our property from the English mar
ines within the next thirty days. Should
war with England be declared this
would certainly happen as the country
would have to defend itself while wait
ing for the government to send troops
to cur aid. We are not at all fearful of
war happening with England even if the
English diplomat has gotten a little the
best of the argninent in the Behring
sea matter, but we mention the fact to
show that the state of Oregon needs to
keep her militia on a decent footing,
and in shape that it can take the field
if called upon. If this cannot be done
the next best thing is to disband the
regiments.' They are no good without
arms and equipments, and the amount
of money, expanded on them now is a
pure waste, unless more is but with it
and they are put in condition to fight if
called upon. Thirty or forty thousand
dollars would accomplish this result,
and we believe the state should make
WHEN THE FATES PERMIT.
One of those cases which illustrate the
ups and downs of life, and the liability
of man to the fluctuating tide of circum
stance was called to our attention this
morning. Eleven years ago a carpenter
named Frederick Eadelfinger lived at
Goldendale. He added to his earnings
by furnishing music for parties, etc., be
ing a fair musician, but work was scarce.
and circumstances turned against him.
lie fell sick, and soon his money was ex
hausted. He was boarding with Cleaves
& Carey, the same Jack Cleaves now at
Centerville, and being unable to work
was kept by them. When he got able to
gej around he found himself in debt to
them for board in the sum of nearly a
hundred dollars, wiih no work and no
prospect of any. Promising to settle his
bill when able he hired out to drive a
band of cattle to" Cheyenne. From there
he returned to California his old home,
and after a time started a small grocery.
After a year or so he got on his feet
financially and sent $100 to Cleaves &
Carey. Soon after this, while- hunting
in the mountains he discovered a quartz
ledge, developed it, put a mill on it and
to-day it takes seven figures to represent
his wealth. Eleven years is not a long
time, but it is capable of allowing many
changes if the blind creature, Kismet,
.gets in her fancy work. Mr. Eadel
finger arrived here the other day and
from his friends the Filloon brothers we
heard the above story. He left for home
Wednesday after a pleasant visit here.
An Oregonian correspondent at Salem
;gives the following forecast oi the legis
lative organization :
"The contest for speaker of the house
has merged into a triangular fight, with
Representative J. M. McCall, of Jackson
county, an aspirant for the honor. Rep
resentative Geer, of Marion; is making a
lively canvass and feels assured of win
ning, although Story of Multnomah, has
considerable more than his home delega
tion at his back and is looked upon as
leading in the race. But if Simon is
chosen president of the senate, Mr.
Sfory's chances for speaker are nil."
"Among the many aspirants for minor
offices the following are the most promi
nent," "Secretary of the senate, O. P. Miller
and F. C. Middleton ; sergeant-at-arms of
the senate, M. Pomeroy ; reading clerk,
J . B. Eddy ; doorkeeper of the senate,
J. McCormack and Herbert Hatch.
"In the house, C. B. Watson, of Jack
son county, R. R. Hays, of Tilliamook,
and Glen Holman of Multnomah, are
named for chief clerk with Hays decidedly
a favorite of the trio. A. W. Drager, of
Marion wants to be doorkeeper. Col.
Nevius of Wasco, will hardly have any
opposition for reading clerk of the house,

The amount of wheat handled by the
L nion Pacific railroad at this point is in
round numbers 240,000 tons per year
and yet the railroad company treats us as
though The Dalles -was a whistling sta
tion. In fact the whole course of treat
ment prescriljed for ua indicates that the
railroad would like to cinch us to death
if it could. With an average of 670 tons
of freight handled here every day, it
would seem that the company would
appreciate the place and try to assist in
building it up as well as holding on to it
It is doing neither, but is treating us in
sucn a manner that whenever there is
any other way of having communication
with the rest of the world, the Union
Pacific will find that its treatment has
borne a legitimate result, and that its
trade will be lost. The freight rates from
Portland are enormous, and the passenger
dervice ia Jfttle better than none. A line
of boats on the river will wake the com
pany up to the importance of this trade
and from present appearances, this
awakening will take place early in the
There is an old saying that "Cows far
off wear long horns." The truth ful
ness of the remark is exemplified every
day in common affairs. Smith and Jones
living two miles apart on the banks of
the creek will take their fish poles for a
days outing. Smith will go up to Jones'
to where the fishing is better, and Jones
will go down to Smiths' where the fish
are more plentiful. We see another ex
emplification of it in our schools. We
have here in our Wasco Academy one of
the best schools in the state. Its merit
is acknowledged, and pupils are sent here
from all over the state. It is too close
at home however and many of our people
send their children to other points to
school. There is another saying that
"far fetched and dear bought pleases
"the ladies,' and it also seems to please
parents, who while they could give their
children the benefit of our own school,
which is the equal of any in the state,
prefer to send them away at considerable
more expense. There is no use kicking
about it, because people are built that
way, and the man or woman, who has
not a large sized bump of perverseness,
is of too angelic mold for earth.
The political machine seems to be run
ning with "hot boxes" in most of the
states. Montana has three houses and
no organization f New Hampshire has a
house full and more too, having a con
tmgent of "if entitled" members:
Michigan is fighting for the speakershin
of the house, while Nebraska is on the
verge of war or the insane asylum. In
the latter the speaker of the house, an
Alliance man, ordered the lieutenant-
governor placed under arrest, while the
lieutenant-governor defied the sneaker

It is said that Mitchell is thinking
seriously of incorporating in order to
protect herself, and to put a check on

it would be a good move, and if it will
have this effect we join with them
heartily. In this connection it is proper
to remark that a general incorporation

Mitchell's, and we hope some ot.our law

The rich grazing country along the eastern slope
of the the Cascades furnishes pasture for thousands
of sheep, the wool from which finds market here.
The Dalles is the largest original wool shipping
point in America, about 5,000,000 pounds being
shipped this year.
THE VINEYARD OF OREGON". J"
The country -near The Dalles produces splendid
crops of cereals, and its fruits cannot be excelled. It
is the vineyard of Oregon, its grapes equalling Cali
fornia's best, and its other fruits, apples, pears,
prunes, cherries etc., are unsurpassed.
The salmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia,
yielding this year a revenue of $1,500,000 which can
and will be more than doubled in the near future.
The products of the beautiful Klickital valley find
market here, and the country south and east has this
year filled the warehouses, and all available storage
places to overflowing with their products.
It is the richest city of its size on the coast, and its
money is scattered over and is being used to develop
more farming country than is tributary to any other
city in Eastern Oregon.
Its situation is unsurpassed! Its climate delight
ful! Its possibilities incalculable! Its resources -unlimited!
