The Chronicle is . the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
HOSPITA LS VERS US.. PENITEN
TIARIES. The East Oregonian seems to think that
all crimes are but the evidence of a dis
eased state of mind and that criminals,
instead of being confined in the peni
tentiary should be sent to some kind of
an hospital. That paper seems to think
that it is very bad to take a cold blooded
murderer and hang him. The poor dear
jnau should bo taught "economy and
thics"' as a means of reformation and
hen graduated turned loose again. The
paper of course rejoices that Sandy Olds
got off so cheap, and must have a high
conception of the ethical and economic
erudition of the Hillsboro jury, whose
only qualification for the office of jurors,
as it seems to one untrained, we suppose
both in ethics and economics, was a
fftolid, stupid ignorance of passing events,
mh dense as that of an inhabitant of an
African jungle. The man capable of
thinking that crime is always evidence of
disease and that it should be treated
remedial y rnd never punitively well,
we suppose the Almighty made him for
tiome purpose but to use an Irish bull, if
we were hanged we couldn't see what
that purpose is.
Governor Langton ' of ' Washington
seems to have vetoed about every bill
passed by thelast legislative assembly,
whose object was to give the people any
relief from the railroads." He 'has also
vetoed what was known as the anti
Pinkerton bill, which provides that no
person, corporation or association or
their agents should organize, maintain
or employ an armed body of men' in the
state for any purpose whatever, under a
penalty of from $1000 to $5000, and a
like sum for each day they should con
tinue to offend. This latter measure is
one being demanded by lalxjr ' associa
tions throughout the whole United
States and is perfectly just and fair; and
should bar been approved. It is to "be
hoped that the farmers and laboring
classes will take care of Governor
Laughtotv if be ever asks anything at
their hands again.
A YEAR'S FOREIGN TRADE.
From a valuable article in the March
number of the Youth's Companion we
extract the following :
The exchange of products between this
wountry and lands beyond the sea in
creases steadily. The returns showing
the extent of the foreign trade for the
calendar year 1890 have recently been
issued, lhey show that goods were im
ported to the value of eight hundred and
twenty-three million dollars ; the value
of domestic goods exported was eight
hundred and forty-six millions.
Of tho importations of the vear 1890
rather more than onerthird .of the value
consisted of goods free of uuty. The
v value of free goods was two hundred and
eighty-eight millions ; of those subject to
duty five hundred and thirty-five million.
The largest single item ot importation
was coffee, of which more than eighty
four million dollars' worth was received
during the year. This, however, was
but one million dollars more than the
value of sugar and molasses, which has
heretofore always held the first place On
The value of texile goods imported is
also very large, in spite of the efforts
made to secure the market of these goods
to domestic manufacturers. ' Woollens
and worsted goods imported were worth
fifty-four millions; siik forty-one mil
lions ; cotton thirty-three millions ; linen,
hemp and jute twenty-seven millions.
' Other important items of importation
are chemicals and drugs forty-six
millions, and iron and its manufactures
forty-four millions. The articles we have
mentioned represent quite one-balf of. the
total value of imports. There are no
other articles of nearly so much im
portance as any one of these. '
, On the export side the trade is even
more closely confined,- in its large items,
to a few articles. ' Not less, than two
hundred and fifty-four millions of dollars
was the value of cotton exported, and
tins alone stands for thirty per cent, of
the total. - .i . v .
: Provisions is second on the list, one
hundred and forfy-tbree millions ; bread-
stuffs third, one hundred and forty-two
millions; and petroleum, crude and re
fined, fifty-one millions, is next. There
is no other class of goods which repre
sents as much as forty millions. - But
the merchandise enumerated 'includes
nearly three-fourths of the : value of
American exports. i ..i '..'.:-.
Where do we buy, and where do we
sell? The returns f trade by countries
are not complete, but the character of
the foreign commerce does not "Change
much from year to year. -' ;:- ---.' -
. By far the greatest amount of trade is
with Great Britain. .. One-fourth of all
" the imports are from that country, and
one-half the exports are sent there;
Germany is second and France third,
counting the trade both ways ; but the
imports from the West Indies are greater
than those from France.
There are three things which public
men are now trying to effect, in connec
tion with the foreign trade, namely, to
increase the amount of exports of manu
factures, to augment the trade with
Central and South America, and to
restore a part of the carrying trade to
American ships. -.- - During the year 1890
less than one-seventh of the imports and
less then one-tenth of the exports were
carried in American vessels

Senator Frye Thinks This State Beats
All for Getting Appropriations.
Washington, March 24. Senator
Mitchell sat in the same restaurant a
few days ago with a party of friends, when
Senator Frye, chairman of the senate
committee on commerce, entered and
sat down. After the senators bad ex
changed greetings, Mr. Frye asked Mr.
Mitchell when he was going home. -"In
a month or two," remarked Mr.
Mitchell. I have some cases in the
supreme court, and am at work prepar
ing briefs." '
"When is Dolph going' home?" asked
"T-"Oh, he will be here for some time
yet, responded Mr. Mitchell.
'"Well, the treasury of the United
States will not be entirely safe until the
Oregon men have gone home," remarked
Mr. If rye. "lhat state has away of get
ting money in appropriations which
beats anything I ever saw."
"We ' nave been rather successful at
this session," replied Senator Mitchell,
and, turning to his friends, said : "I am
afraid they are laying this up against us,
and in future congresses we may be met
with the assertion that we have been
well treated in the past, and must not
expect so much in the future. ' However,
we will try and keep the things going
that are under way, and get as much
more as we can."
It is a fact that the success of Oregon
in the matter of appropriations during
the present congress has caused a great
deal of talk at the capital.
Rev. Willard Scott, of Omaha, thus
sums up the outcome of the work of the
majority of the late Nebraska legistature :
A residence of sixty days at the capital
has wrought a transformation which was
not expected by the alliance men them
selves nor by others, and the prompt
withdrawal by investment companies of
all money offered for loans has made the
transformation permanent. . The legis
lators do not now think as they, did in
November when they were elected, es
pecially those who have come from the
outlying districts. The atmosphere of a
city of 65,000 people, with four universi
ties and scores of professors and profes
sional men, has been wholesome and
corrective. . Many of these teachers are
students of social and political science,
and have developed the thoughts of the
city and neigh boi hood to their was of
thinking. A dozen other special schools
in this section of the state have done the
same'. Entering upon this atmosphere,
the alliance men have first begun to
doubt their own ideas, and then to
change them, and before the local strifes
oVer state officers was settled sufficiently,
to enable them to come to the considera
tion of new .laws, they were unwilling
to carry out the plans they had come to
the city to make. Visitors sitting in the
gallery could see a change from week to
week, and the men themselves felt it.
The legislature- has ceased to be a radical
body. -,i - ,:;
Is Disease a Punishment?
The following advertisement, published
by a prominent western patent medicine
house would indicate that they regard
disease as a punishment for sin :
"Do you wish to know the quickest
way to cure a sever cold? We will tell
you. To cure a cold qickly, it must be
treated before the cold has become set
tled in the system. This can always be
done if you choose to, as nature in her
kindness to man gives timely 'warning
and .plainly tells you in nature's way,
that as a punishment for some indiscre
tion, you are to be afflicted with a cold
unless you choose to ward it off by
prompt action. . The first symptoms of a
cold, in most cases, is a dry, loud cough
and sneezing. The cough is" soon followed
by a profuse watery expectoration and
the sneezing by a prosuse watery dis
charge from the nose. , In - severe cases
there is a thin white coating on the
tongue. What to do? It is only necessary
to take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
double doses every hour. That will greatly
lessen the severity of the cold and in
most cases will effectually counteract it,
and cure what would have been a severe
cold within one or two- days time. Try it
and be convinced.'' Fifty cent bottles for

The Cincinati Timet-Star teils a story
of a wealthy westerner whose wife died
a few days ago. Her parents,' who reside
in Cincinnati and in . straightened cir
cumstances, : notified . him , that ; they
wished to- have her remains sent to that
city for burial. The wealthy son-in-law

A. Student Banking-.
One of the more prominent of the
younger men of the Philadelphia bar had
been talking about the various methods
pursued by young men to save money. "I
chanced npon an odd case of saving the
other day," he continued, "and the general
uniqueness of it warrants my telling it to
you. . -
"I was spending Sunday at the home of
a young friend of mine, a law student. I
noticed jn his room a child's saving, bank,
and upon picking it up the merry jingle
from within -told me that bank had not re
cently suffered a 'run.' Knowing that the
father of my friend was a mam of means I
could not .conceive what, tbe young man
wanted to save small coins for. so I asked
hfm."' And here ts the answer he gave me:
'Well, you see, father allows me $25 a week
pocket money and gives it to me e cry Sun
day. -.. Frequently when Tuesday morning
came I was "broke." The rigidity of fa
ther's rules kept me in this undone state
for the remainder of the week, for not an
other cent, could I.. get till the following
Sunday.- .H . ?...?: -; !
" 'Three or four Mondays of luxury with
ensuing weeks of penury caused me to
commune with myself, tbe result of which
was ': that I evolved this scheme. Twenty
five dollars a week . amounte to a fraction
over $3.57 a day; so when I leave heme in
the morning I place $3.5T in my pocket,
under -no 'circumstances taking any more.
If I return home at night penniless, all
right, for I have, enough -money for the
next day, and the next, and for every day
till tbe following Sunday. But if I don't
spend all that $3.57 my iron rule is to place
the balance in the bank,. Some days that
bank gets $3 and some days it doesn't get
a cent. Then at the end of the month I
open it-and have cash galore. Ijtat year
that bank averaged $48 per month. I am
never "broke" nowadays.' "Philadelphia

THE LARGfEST 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, and all available storage
places' to overflo wing with their products.
It is the richest city of its size on the coast, and its
