'PUT THE BOAT BACK.
The Klickitat Leader copies the
Chronicle's article under the above
caption and then supplement it iih
the.following vigorous reaiarkt :
How long, how long muft tlio Teoje
of Klickitat Buffer at the hands cf this
monopoly. 'which with its influem-e j;rii
money huve driven every opposition
boat from the river as soon as put us;?
v men witn its mriucnce ieit m congress
aud upon the men sent by congress to
open the river have kept the locks "from
being opened? It is time to stop this
kind of work. The people are now at
the mercy of this grinding, corporate,
rnonev-miiKing concern, which has no
respect for the people or their represen
tives, but the day will come when all
these things will le remembered against
the com pan v. If the boat cannot be
run without losing money what is the
matter with taking it otf altogether and
let someone put on a boat that can
make money, and that will accommo
date the people, instead of leadin? them
to depend upon it and then stop when it
is most needed.
A notable example of Christians, so-
called, "hating each other for the Lpve
of God," was witnessed in a funeral pro
ceding near Meeker ville, Pa., a few days
a.o. There has been serious trouble in
the "Reformed" church there for sev
eral years, resulting at last in a division
of the congregation and a suit for the
church property. One of the sisters,
member of the old congregation, died.
and upon the arrival of the funeral pro
cession at the church, the pastor, who
was one of the seceders, refused to
accompany the body into the church ;
the husbacd, equallv zealous in the
cause of brotherly love and Christian
unity, refused to so with it into the sec
edersr church, so the pious throng stood
bareheaded in the bitter blast, knee
deep in the snow, while the prayers were
read and the exhortation to lives of
meekness, piety and good will was given
after which the remains were buried
and the factions stalked defiantly home
ward. The materialist, full of kindness
and charity toward his fellowman, must
lOOk with pittV UPOn the ftf.rivinoa r,f
misguided human souls for a heaven
the pathway to which is shadowed, as
in this instance, by the blind uneodli
ness of zeal. Professing Christians who
ignore the first principles of brotherly
love, tolerance and forbearance, as taught
by the gentle Nazarone, are a far greaer
atumbflng block in the path of religion
than are those who openly denounce
the Christ as a myth, scout the miracles
and langh at the' story of the immacu
late conception. The difference is that
between a bold assault upon the outer
walls of a citadel and the subtle sapping
of the same from within, disclosing its
weak place- to an arrogant foe. Oreg
vnian. Saturday Senator Dolph from the
-committee on public land reported the
senate bill amending the railroad land
forfeiture bill of last session, so as to
make the period of six months for asser
tion of the rights of settlers to the lauds,
begin to run, not from the time the act
was passed, but from the date of the
restoration of the lands to settlement
and Bale. As the original act .only gave
settlers six months from the passage of
the act in which to assert their rights,
and as this time seems likely to elapse
before the department have declared the
lands subject to settlement, this action
was highly important. Senator Dolph
explained the matter, and the bill
passed without opposition.
There are so many reasons why the
Nicaragua canal should be built that it
does not seem possible the government
will fail to guarantee the bonds neces
sary to have it done. It would make
the navy on the Atlantic coast available
in case of need on the Pacific, but the
benefits in peaceful pursuits would be
immeasurably greater than those arising
from the necessities of war. .With this
canal completed coast points would get
the advantage of competitive freight
rates. It would not require then
wealthy steamship lines to carry on our
ocean trade with the east, , and the
tramp steamships would have a chance
to do our carrying trade. Portland
would be but little further away from
New York, in time, by water than by
land with " her freights, and the whole
coast, would get the benefit of cheap
An editorial in Sunday's Oregonian
under the headlines "Christ vs. Christain
Parents," is worthy of republication in
every paper in the land, and should be
read by every man in the state. It is a
straight blow from the shoulderg at every
one of us, and leaves nothing more to.be
said on the subject. It is a prose rendi
tion of the "Bridge of sighs" and as
masterly- an effort in its way as was
Hood's famous poem.

There is entirely too much attention
paid to tiie Indians dancing. It is
their greatjremedy for all things. They
dance to niake it rain, and to make it
stop raining; they dance to make the
DuiTalo come, and to drive evil spirits
away; they have the sun dance to test
their courage and endurance, and dance
just as hard before they have a feast on
dog, as they are said to over their fihost
craze. They have danced to some pur
pose too in Dakota since like Herod's
daughter they have danced the official
head off of one whom thev disliked.
FOR A NAVAL KKSFKVE.
Steamship Bailors' Union Ask for Its
Sax Fkaxcisco, Jan. 10. The chain
ber of commerce of San Francisco has
received a communication from the
Steamship Sailors' Union of this cirv

asking its influence in obtaining for" Cal
ifornia a force of naval militia, to con
sist of a battalion of four companies of
100 men each. The chamber of cam
merce has appointed a committee to in
quire into the subject and formulate a
bill creating such force, to be introduced
in the state legislature. The committee
has drawn up such a bill, and will make
its report to the chamber at its next
regular meeting, on Tuesday, the 20th
inst. A number of prominent naval
and army officers have been invited to
be present, including Admirals Benham
and Brown, General Gibbon, U. S. A.,
Captain Remey, of the cruiser Charles
ton, and Captain Sampson, of the cruiser
ban rancisco, the latter having given
this matter a great deal of attention
and having written several articles on
the subject of a naval reserve. These
officers will undoubtedly be present at
the meeting, and will probablv express
The Northern Pacific Contemplates New
Branches This Year.
Tacoma, Jan. 10. Over a million
dollars will be spent in the construction
of new railroad branches and the im
provement of old lines in the western
part of this state during the current year
by the Northern Pacific. The improve
ments and extensions of the line that
have been contemplated for some time
past have been definitely decided upon.
The office at St. Paul is now considering
whether the amount asked for work in
this state cannot be reduced. It is not
likely that the sum desired will be in
creased, and in a few weeks it is expected
that the plans submitted will be ap
