" The Behring Sea Controversy. London, Jan. 10. The Chronicle, com menting on the "Behring sea controversy, says : "If it be true that Blaine has sug gested that a commission proceed to Alaska and reporton the condition of the fishery, he has taken a very prudent course, likely to remove the deadlock. We hope the British government will lose no time in giving the proposal sup port." Berlin, Jan. 10. The Behring sea question is discussed by the press of the country as having no special relation to German interests. The tendency of opinion is distinctly in favor of arbitra tion. Reports which, however, are un confirmed, credit the government with taking the initiative in suggesting that the governments at London and AVash ington appoint an arbitration tribunal, composed of eminent jurists selected from the neutral powers. The idea is scouted that the difference can possibly result in an armed conflict. To Commemorate the Discovery - of America. Madrid, Jan. 10.

In Congress. Washington', Jan. 12. Senator Quay to-day introduced a bill entitled, an act to prevent force and fraud in federal elections, and to insure lawful and peace ful conduct thereof.

' The head of navigation in all naviga ble rivers is a point at which the establi shment of a city becomes a necessity. The surrounding country decides by its productions whether that city shall be great or small, fortunate or unfortonate. In this regard the City of the Dalles is to be specially congratulated, for in whichever direction one may travel there exists a stretch of the most productive grazing and agricultural lands in the State of Oregon. This city has become the natural outlet for the products of these thousands of acres, and its ware houses handle the fruits of the earth to a value extending into the million each year. The product of the surrounding wheat country will average two million bushels annually ; its grazing lands pro duce seven million pounds of wool in the same period. Fruits of all kind flourish in abundance, the apple, pear, peach, plum, and varieties of berries growing with a magnitude and luxuriance which to the Eastern fruit producer is "bewilder ing. Ismail tracts of ten and twenty acres give to their owners an incoms of irom five to eight thousand dollars per year. In, the midst of this prosperity stands she city of the Dalles.
