The Oregonian yesterday gave the
PenDoyer boom a decided impetus, and
today backs it up with the publish3!
opinions of Portland's leading demo
crats. Its editorials are flattering to
neither the democracy nor Pennoyer.
but they are we helieve the honest
opinion of the editor of that paper as to
Pennoyer's fitness for the nomination.
There can be no doubt a)out Pennoyer's
popularity with the farmers of Oregon,
and it is reasonable to suppose that this
popularity would extend to the same
classes elsewhere. A matter of state
pride, of coast pride would give him
lota of republican votes, and would in
all probability give him the solid vote of
the Pacific coast. He, if any democrat
can, would carry the Dakotas, Nebraska
and Kansas, and these with the south,
if it went solid, would give him 211 votes
or about enough to elect without any
aid from any of the other northern states.
With any one of them he would be safe,
and there would be a better chance of
his carrying New York than there seems
to be now for either Hill or Cleveland.
Of course much depends on whom his
opponent would be, aH the proper man
might make any of the Alliance states
doubtful. But at the present stage of
the game notwithstanding the open
sarcasm of the Oregoian editorials, we
believe that Sylvester Pennoyer is the
strongest and "most available man the
democratic party has in its ranks to-day.
Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars
is a large sum, yet for a great state like
Oregon it is a trifle. It is not too large
a sum to be expended at Chicago in mak
ing a display of Oregon products, if any
display is to be made. It will be readily
seen that a poor display is worse than
none, since whatever we show will be
said to be our best. There seems to be
but two courts open to the legislature,
one to give the $250,000, the other to give
nothing. If some arrangement can be
made (and we see no reason why it can
not) by which the convict labor of the
state, and that of Washington can be
utilized in opening the Columbia, then
the state can readily devote that amount
of money to advertising her resources.
She will have the. money to spare, and
with the Columbia open to navigation
she will have a vast area of splendid
farming land, at present unsettled, to
locate immigrants on. As it is Eastern
Oregon is handicapped in the matter of
immigration for the reason that her
transportation facilities are inadequate
to her present needs, and until the Col
umbia is opened she can hope for no
better service than she is getting now.
Get the convict labor to work on the
Cascade locks, and then advertise. With
this combination Oregon would doub'e
her xpulation in two years, and the
$250,000 would be paid in, in taxes in
The most Rev. Michael Logue, arch
bishop of the diocese of Armagh, and
the primate of all Ireland recently de
clared that "the priests and bishops of
Ireland would have nothing to do with
any compromise in regard to Parnell's
retirement until lie married Mrs.
O'Shea." It is hard to understand the
process of reasoning by which the arch
bishop arrives at this conclusion. Ac
cordingly to the tenets of his church,
Parnell should do penance for his sins,
yet Parnell, it is insisted shall simply
continue to do as he has been doing. If
it was morally wrong for Parnell to al
ienate the affections of Mrs. O'Shea
from her husband, by what process of
reasoning can it be made morally right
that he should enjoy the benefit of his
wrong doing? Our laws say "no man
shall take advantage of his own wrong."
Is there a different moral rule for Ireland?
To a worldly man it looks as though the
proper punishment would be to eep
them apart. To compel them to marry
would be to compel them to complete
an offence which, if they were not told
tney must do, they would probably do
from- choice. On the same principle, a
man stealing a horse, should be com
pelled to forge a bill of sale of him, and
then be required to assert his owner
Senator . Mitchell was nominated in
caucus by -the republican members of
the legislature yesterday by a unani
mous vote. This was a deserved com
pliment to the senator and one on which
we congratulate both him and his party.
Senator Mitchell is in our humble opin
ion the peer of any man in the U. S.
senate, and as able a statesman as ever
represented the state at Washington.
Even the democrats are proud of him,
though would like to see his seat filled
by one of their own party, but since it
must be a republican are glad to see one
whose hands are guiltless of boodle, and
whose political record is clean, chosen to
represent the state.
While we of Oregon, especially of
Eastern Oregon have been, and are now
prone to find Xault with the general
government, for unnecessary delays in
completing improvements to the Colum
bia, there is no denying the fact that we
have received larger appropriations than
any other section of the country unless
indeed it is the jetties of the Mississippi.
This state of affairs is largely due to our
representatives in Washington. The
fault lies not so much in the furnishing
the means as it does in their expendi
ture. That is where the trouble lies.
Of the $435,000 appropriation now on
hand, no honest or earnest effort is being
made to expend it profitably. Money
may come and go, appropriations be
made and squandered, but the yawning
chasm at the Cascades gaps to heaven in
vai n , for the near waters of the Columbia.
Just now four men are employed in lay
ing stone in the walls although quite a
mirol)er are employed otherwise. With
four men the job will last longer than we
have time, paper or patience to calculate,
and yet there is plenty of money on
hund, and the season is one of the best
we have ever had. There. is no hope of
change until the work is taken from the
war department arid turned over to con
tractors, then and not until then will the
work be finished.
Senator Watkins has introduced a bill
which goes straight at the business of
getting a more on both Oregon and
Washington in the matter of opening the
Columbia. As a temporary measure of re
lief he proposes that a railroad be built,'
and we hope that the matter will be
attended to by the legislature at once.
Every member from Eastern Oregon
should give this bill a boost. There are
no politics in it, but the interest, the
prosperity.the progress of Eastern Oregon
is at stake. The press are a Unit in its
favor, and it is safe to say that each
paper represents the opinion of the citi
zens of its locality. Let the bill be
passed and that too before a dollar is
appropriated for wagon roads. The
latter are in many cases needed, but they
are secondary in importance to an open
river which benefits the entire people of
ihe Eastern halves of Oregon and Wash
ington. When this is done, relief should
be given to some localities in the shape
of wagon roads. We have one case in
this county, that of the Tygh mountain
where state aid is needed and should be
granted, but we want to see the railroad
at the locks provided for first.
It is sincerely to le hoped that the
Indian trouble will be speedily termi
nated, and that General Miles will be
able to terminate them. The telegrams
day after day are becoming decidedly
monotonous, though of course we are
glad to see the matter in the way of set
tlement without bloodshed. Should the
Indians surrender and be disarmed
sound policy would suggest that they be
not again allowed to possess the deadly
Winchesters. If they are to be made
and kept peaceable, and taught peaceful
pursuits, it is absolutely necessary that
firearms as well as firewater be kept
awav from them.
Owing to the wheat blockade in East
ern Washington, the increased rate of as
sessment and the change of tine when
taxes become delinquent, many of the
farmers have failed to pay their taxes It
is proposed to introduce in the Legisla
ture a bill to refund the taxes that have
been paid, and another to extend the
time of payment till March 1.
Tha seal for the state of Wyoming con
tains the figure of a woman, from whose
uplifted arm hangs a broken chain, while
the motto of the state is "Equal Rights."
This seal was adoptee dy the first fegisla
ture, and is emblematical of the political
truths of a state which is different in the
respect symbolized from every other in
the American Union.
The question has been asked, "In
what respect are St. Patrick's Pills bet

their action, and that they not only
physic but cleanse the whole system and
regulate the liver and bowels. For sale

THE LARGEST WOOL MARKET.
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, a"bout 5,000,000 pounds being
shipped this year.
THE VINEYARD OF OREGON.
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.
. ITS PRODUCTS.
The salmon fisheries are
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 theirroducts.
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 deliffht-
