Senator Haley's Bill, ujxjii which
Eastern Oregon was building its hoix;
for increased and cheaper transportation ;
fatalities has apparently been defeated. !
The responsibility of this action is laid
upon the democratic liiemliers of the
house ; if this be true, Eastern Oregon
will forget its old Unit; democratic pro-!
cliyities entirely and send to the next
legislature a unanimous republican rep
resentation. AVe. are at loss to under
stand why the democratic members
should have taken this Ksition when
the governor has from the beginning de
clared himself strongly in favor of the
measure. Is the party divided? or has
the governor taken the x.sitioii favoring
the measure to increase his own popu
larity and then directed his iolitical as
sociates to kill the measure? We sin
cerely ho there has leen no treachery ;
to be defeated by an honest majority Ave
can stand it, but to be surrounded ami
scalied through treachery, Weil we
hope for all concerned this i not our
fate. The bill may jossibly yet be
passed as . returned from the senate,
without the amendment, but we have
little hope of this. Now, gentlemen of
Washington, we look to yon. lt the
generous spirit, broad mindedness and
wise foresight' which has brought your
state to its present greatness, once more
come to the front. Build the portage
between Celilo and The Dalles and open
to the producers of your great and rich
territory east of the Cascades . the only
economical a .'enue of trade within their
We have heard it suggested that the
board of trade of this city is not repre
sentative of the business interests of the
city and as at present constituted can
not speak for the people of this commu
nity. If this le the fact we sincerely
deplore it. We suggest to those whose
interests are not there represented that
it is high time they should be. We
never knew the board to refuse the right
of membership to any business man of
the city, who was willing to pay his dues.
There is. in every community people
who are unwilling to bear their share
of the public burdens, who shirk
the work necessary to advance matters
of general interest, who, with their
purses in their clinched hands and their
hands in their pockets go about abusing
those who give their time and money to
the public liecause what is done is not
done as they believe their individual
and sellish interests demand. If a
church or school is to be built or sup
ported they keep out of sight or suggest
unreasonable reasons for withholding
their aid. It a lward of trade exists they
. avoid sharing the expense, labor and
valuable time necessary to make it of
any value, and growl and snarl from the
outside and declare that it is a clique
trying to run things to suit themselves.
Our board of trade is composed of the
. leading business men of the city; it has
a large memlierehip and has done and is
doing a valuable service to this commu
nity. If it does not represent your senti
ments we suggest that you put vourself
in a situation to induce it to do so. You
can't do this by growling from the out
ride. The people of Sherman county are
again agitating the subject of a local or
brancli railroad and are very anxious to
, assist in its construction. With ordin
arily favorable weather there will be
harvested from eight hundred thousand
to a million bushels of grain in that
county next fall ; and a railroad con
structed through the central or southern
jwrtions of the county would nearly
double the grain acreage of the county a
year hence. A road connecting with or
. furnishing a part of the proposed road to
the Fossil mines would bring all this
grain to our market and the producers
would thereby reap the benefit of the ad
ditional transportation facilities which
will innure to the benefit of traders gn
. our market by reason of the portage
railroad at the Cascades. Without the
opinion of a practical railroad - man, we
venture the suggestion that a narrow
guage railroad would do this work and
could be constructed at comparatively
small expense. Where is the railroad
man to undertake this enterprise?
A Washington, D. C. special says:
"Mitchell's boat railway bill, which was
amended by the house committee for a
portage railway, is on the calendar, but
as it comes to over $400,000 of an appropri
ation, can scarcely expect to get through
this session. Dolph's mouth of the Co
lumbia and Cascade improvement bills
may by some good fortune get through
. the house this session, but it is only a
THE WORLD'S FAIR.'
The Oakland Enquirer lectures -people
who act like children in this timely talk :
If American patriotism is not extinct, it
is high time that some of it should ,- be
displayed in reference to the World's
Fair, which is becoming a football . for
all the demagogues in the country. Or,
rather, it is being made a ladder upon
which all sorts of selfish desires seek to
climb upward. A few weeks ago the
the country heard with surprise as well
as with some aDger that democratic leg
islatures were passing resolutions threat
ening to abstain from appropriating
money for the fair if the Federal election
bill was passed. So many legislatures
passed these resolutions about the same
time that it was evident that they had
received instructions from some common
source and that opposition to the
World's Fair was being systematically
used to accomplish a political purpose.
Hut this was only the beginning, for the
other day in the Colorado legislature
there was introduced a resolution citing
that parties in Chicago opposed free coin
age of silver and proposing therefore to
boycott the fair. Now it is the turn of
the labor unions of Chicago, which
threaten to denounce the fair and do all
in their power to prevent it success un
less the directors agree to give labor
organizations a boost. . No one can tell
where this thing is going to stop, now it
has been started, and all the disgrunted
elements in the country may yet arise
aud demand that their long-cherished
but unrealized desires shall be granted
on penalty of breaking up the fair. It
exhibits class selfishness in its worst
form and impeaches the patriotism of
the naiton. After the French had an
nounced to the world that they would
hold a great international fair in Paris
they did not proceed to nse it as a lever
age for political advantage or a grind
stone upon which to whet the axes of
their spites and revenges, but rather it
was the cause of a great national unifica
tion. The different classes of politicians
suspended their animosities, and during
the exposition France was more har
monious than she had teen for a genera
tion. Cannot the United States do as
well as the European republic? If so,
it Is time to begin.

The bill for the protection of salmon as
agreed uion by the joint fish committee
of Oregon and Washington, and intro
duced by Senator Fulton, has passed
both houses. Following is a brief
Salmon shall not be taken in the Col
umbia or its tributaries between the 1st
day of March and the 10th dav of April,
or between the 10th dav of August and
the 10th day of September, or between
6 o'clock Saturday and 6 o'clock Sunday
during the close time ; salmon shall not
be caught within a mile below any rack
erected for the purpose pf obtaining fish
for propagation; salmon shall not be
taken in any waters in this state except
the Columbia and tributaries -from Nov
ember 15th to April 1 ; nets, traps and
weirs shall not extend more than one
third across any stream, channel or
slough ; lime, gas, cocculus indicus, or
any substance deleterious, to fish, must
not be thrown into anv stream. From
March 1st to April 10th' it shall be a mis
demeanor to have in possession, offer for
sale or transport any chinook salmon,
silver salmon, steelheads and bluebacks.
No dam or other obstruction shall be
built across any stream without a suita
ble fishway or ladder be provided. Saw
dust must not be thrown into streams
nor placed where high water will carry
it away. The term salmon is construed
to include chinook, steelhead, silver
side and all other species of salmon.
All fines collected shall be paid into a
fund f6r the use of the fish commission.
Nets, traps and weire must be taken out
of the rivers, or closed during the closed
season. Pound nets and traps must be
numbered, and at night time a bright
white light must be shown.
The house committee has added the
Provided that in the Clackamas river
it shall not be lawful to take or fish for
salmon by any means whatever, between
the 15th day of May and the 1st of No
vember. The penalty for a violation of anv one
of the foregoing provisions is a fine of
not less than foO, nor more than 2&0.
Another bill agreed upon by the joint
committee of the two legislatures pro
hibits anyone not a citizen of one or the
0her, e,tate8 1x0X0 engaging or fishing on
the Columbia or waters over . which the
two states have concurrent jurisdiction.
This is intended to keep out the riffraff
and cutthroats from California, who
come up here every year. The bill has
already passed the senate and Will pass
the house. .
The New York law holds that if "an
unmarried woman" makes a will and
then takes a husband, her marriage ren
ders the will void. Mrs. Dillon, a widow
in New York, is worth $1,000,000; she
is a widow and wants to marry. Prior
to her husband's deaths she made a will;
What her lawyers want to know, now,
"is a widow an unmarried woman?"
Mrs. Dillon claims she is an unmarried
woman. It is the old case of "the law
and the lady," and the lady seems to
have the best of it.
An Open River.
The question of an open river is now
assuming most formidable proportions.
From a hundred sources the cry has been
taken up an old efforts and association
reoganized with zeal and energy, never
before equaled. Senators McConnell, of
Idaho, and Dolph of Oregon, both have
bills pending in congress toward this
end, and it is likely that both Washing
ton and Oregon will act upon the ques
tion in their state legislatures. Let
Idaho too lend a helping hand. The
waters of the Snake should be made
available to float the extensive products
of half the state to tide water. Lewis
Bleating Then mad Now. '
The opening of the skating season this
winter revealed a carious fact.-. Very
few of the girls of a certain age, those
just blossoming into' young womanhood,
knew how to skate, and there was a like
deficiency in the boys of the same set.
Brothers and sisters a few years advanced
were perfectly at home on the ice. This
is easily accounted for. If the warm
winters of a few years past were to con
tinue ice skating would soon become a
lost art. . Another factor in the case was
the recent prevalence of roller skating,
which -crowded the older and better sport
oat pf fashion. The Springfield boys and
girls of fifty years ago found good skat
ing at their very doors. Frost's pond
was just off Main street, back of the pres
ent site of Brigham's stores and the Sec
ond bank, and when the meadows were
flooded, as was often the case, the young
sters could skate from State street clear
up to Carew by climbing an occasional
pair of bars.
In those days the crack fancy skater
of the town was Emory Whipple, the
now veteran jeweler. There were none
of the ingenious skates which every boy
has now. The runner or shoe either had
a groove along the bottom or consisted
of two parallel pieces rof steel. The
present narrow edge was unknown; the
toe ended in a fantastic curl, and the
heel was held to the boot heel by a spike,
The skate was securely bound to the
foot with many . windings of a strap.
Getting one's skates on was not the triv
ial matter that it is today. Springfield

The Rase for Hot Milk.
By the by, there has never been so
much vogue given to milk as there is just
now. In fact, there are hundreds of
clubmen who have never seen as much
since they went from one bottlo to an
other. Ymi are asked to have a glass of
hot milk, or a glass of hot vichy, just a.i
you are asked to have a cup of tea, or
some creme de meuthe. In a cut glass
goblet, standing on a bright hued plate,
the milk and vichy is particularly appe
tizing, aud it is marvelous how much of
it the men drink.
It is the result of offering a simple
drink in an attractive manner. Service
in this world means so much, and really
it seems to be more appreciated by men
than by women. A boiled potato and a
piece of beefsteak on a hot plate, with a
glittering silver fork and a bright steel
knife, with the butter in a dainty little
pat, and the bread in a 'smooth cut piece,
with the whitest of napery, is more ap
petizing than a dinner of twenty courses
served in a careless fashion. New York

The Shortage In the Food Crops.
The magnitude of the food supplies of
a nation is not very easily conceived.
We get an approximate idea in the im
ports of Great Britain. In 1889 no less
than 58,000,000 bushels of wheat went
into British ports, and floor to the value
of $41,000,000 has circulated in English
bread pans. It is calculated that the
shortage in wheat in the crop of 1890
will not be lees than 100,000,000 bushels.
Potatoes are placed at the same short
age. . Fruits, vegetables and berries are
credited with a deficiency of 100,000,000
bushels. Europe reports 233,000,000
bushels lacking in the average potato
crops, and the wheat crops as being 80,
000,000 bushels less than the annual con
sumption. Should these figures be but
approximately true, they indicate a grav-1

Temperature in the House.
! It is strange how few people there are
whose feelings are a criterion as to the
proper temperature of a room. No room
in winter should be higher in tempera-'

than this, sleeping rooms, are kept habit

Many wise people believe that the fre
quency of pneumonia and other danger
ous diseases of the lungs and breathing
organs in winter may be directly traced
to overheated houses and the -sudden
change experienced in going from this
high temperature into the cold outer at
mosphere. It would be better if we
made more use of the thermometer in
regulating the heat of our houses, the
atres and lecture rooms. New York
The Story of a Ieer.
At Mehaiua, Ore., a few days ago,
when George Terrell's little daughter
went to the pasture to drive up the
cows, she found a pretty 2-year-old deer
feeding with them. She drove the cows
to the barn yard, and the deer ran along,
"as sportive as a calf on a June morn
ing.' When the cows were, all secure
in the barn the deer was caught with
but little trouble, and is readily submit

How a Spider Throws Its Poison.
The spider is provided with a most ef
fective apparatus for injecting its poison,
consisting of modified mandibles, called
falces. the last joint of which has a hard
curved fang, with a fissure . near the
point. " The muscles used in closing the
mandibles also press upon the poison
gland, -causing the poison Jo be expelled
through the fissure into the wound, and
thence into the circulation of -tbe victim.

An Expensive Message.
A cablegram of over 1,800 words,
which passed through this city from
Lima to London one night recently over
the lines of the Western Union com
pany, cost a pretty penny to transmit,
the rate being over $3 a word. This
would represent an outlay of over $2,600,
and is probably the largest toll paid by
an individual or company outside of

The Gate City of the Inland Empire is situated at
the head of navigation on the Middle Columbia, and
is a thriving, prosperous city.
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agri
cultural and grazing country, its trade reaching as
far south as Summer Lake, a distance of over twe
hundred miles. v
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, about 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.
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,
places to overflowing with
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 un
limited! And on these corner stones she stands.
