The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
Press Dispatches. .
BETTER TIMES FOR STOCKMEN.
Late dispatches assure us that Germany
resolved to withdraw the embargo on
American pork. The Germans are be
ginning to understand that "no pig" on
their part means "no beet suirar" on
ours. We are also assured that "public
satisfaction over the admission of Amer
ican cattle increases as the quality of
imports become recognized. The Ham
burg official returns for March show that
during the month 8U American cattle
were imported. If a lot of 21)6, brought
late in February, by the steamship
Amalfi be added the ' five weeks' total
promises a rapid expansion of trade."
All this is very encouraging to farmers
and stockmen. Everything seems to
indicate that the cattle business has
touched its lowest point in the matter of
prices. The opening of European mar
kets to unrestricted traffic in cattle
would alone tend to advance m-icea.
But other influences have been working
in tne same direction. The excessive
marketing for the past few years an J the
clearing out of large ranges chiefly in
Indian Territories have greatly reduced
the producing capacitv of American
herders. Statistics show that last year
ioreign consumers took $30,000,000 worth
more of American beef than in 1888 and
$21,000,000 more than in 1889 while the
increase in the exports of fresh dressed
beef and canned beef has been nearly as
great as in that of cattle. The total val
ue of cattle and fresh and canned beef
exported in 1886 was $22.000.000.. whiln
the total value of the same products for
tne hscal year 1860 was $61,000,000.
There can scarcely be a reasonable doubt
that this increase will continue, with
still larger augmentation. The new in
spection law which; Secretary Rusk is
carefully enforcing is gradually removing
every yestage of excuse against the re
ception of American . beef by European
countries which hitherto practically ex
cluded it under pretext that it was dis
eased. With the embargo removed
from our cattle and hog products, an im
mense increase in exportation will ensue
and prices are bound to keep place with
the increase in exportation.
AN IMPORTANT CIRCULAR.
We publish in another column a cir
cular certificate signed by Paul Schnlze
general land agent of Northern Pacific
Railroad company which is intended as
a general answer to all persons 'seeking
information as to the policy and practice
-of the company as regards the license
under which many have gone upon and
improved the land to which they are now
seeking to acquire title, under the provi
sions of the forfeiture act. It is will
known that' one of the sections of the
act gives right of purchase of 320 acres to
those who may have contracted with
the company for the purchase of the
lands when they should acquire posses
sion. It is very likely that a question
may arise as to what really constitutes a
contract in the case. Many persons hold
filing on the land who never made any
improvements whatever, and in many
cases these same lands so filed, on have '
been improved by others , and 'were , pc-,
cupied by them at the time of ithe pass-!
age of the act. It is quite plain that the
company did not regard a mere filing in
in the light of a contract, apart from
bona fide improvements and that if the
lands embraced in the forfeiture, provi
sions were to be ofiered for sale by the
company, only persons in possessions
ana valuable : improvement thereon5
would be accorded a right of purchase.
Ibis only the correct principle, and very
iikelv the one the government will adopt'
in all cases where one person claims for
feited lunds under a mere filing . as
against the claim of who has made valu
able improvements thereon.
The law that requires all male inhabi
tants of the state, between, the, ages of
twenty rone and fifty, to pay a poll tax of
one dollar to the assessor at the time of
making assessment is a good deal of a
farce. - One half of those entitled to, pay
never do so, and there is more, trouble
and vexation in collecting the tax ; than
it amounts to whe.n collected. It should
be two or three dollars or nothing. An
assessor can easily spend two dollars
worth of time trying to collect one dollar
poll and then not get it. Our neighbors
north of the' Columbia have effective
way of catching poll, taxes. The law
makes in misdemeanor for any person
liable to pay a poll, tax to refuse to do so
when required by the assessor or his
deputy and leaves such person liable to
a fine of $25 or imprisonment in the
county jail for not exceeding one month.

Xtow Jews Are Treated in Russia.
Let us suppose a part of our own com
munity subjected to the legal restrictions
which now obtain in Russia with regard
to the Jew. Our laws on the subject would
then read somewhat as follows:
"All Jews born in tbe United States shall
be regarded as aliens. No Jews shall dwell
in any part of the United States except the
states of , Virginia JNorth. . Carolina. South
Carolina, Georgia, . Alabama and Missis
sippi unless they are graduates of some
state university, members of a learned
profession, skilled artisans holding certifi
cates from a technical school,, or members
of a chamber of commerce who pay JSOO a
year for that privilege. No Jew shall hold
any government or municipal office,
"No Jew shall buy or rent landed prop
erty. - All Jews shall pay special taxes in
connection, with religious services. ; No 1
synagogue may be opened without the per
mission .of the president of the United
States, and pb public prayers may be held
in any other place than. . a synagogues
When,, more, than,, ten Jews wish to meet,
together for consultation or discussion r
they must, obtain permission from - the
municipal authorities Married Jews who
become converted i to ..Christianity are ipso
facto divorced on conversion;: but the wife, j
if she remains a Jewess, may not marry j
again. . .-.
"All Jews attaining the age of twenty
shall serve five years in . the active army
and thirteen years in the reserve, but no
Jew may become an officer or even an offi
cer's, servant. No Jew shall serve in the
Such a condition of affairs as is implied
in this paraphrase of the Russian laws af
fecting Jews is so Impossible ho incon
ceivable, in . this country and , to us that
we can scarcely imagine .it to exist any
where else. . And yet there is no exaggera
tion in such a paraphrase. The Jew today
in Russia is hedged around by a set of re
strictions as whimsical and as offensive as
anything , devised, by the fanatics of the
Middle, Ages, carried out with a savage
brutality which is possible only in a half
civilized country. Jews are both heretics
and aliens in Russian eyes. P. G, Hubert,

One Way of Providing for the Old.-
The Fijians spend no inconsiderable part
of their- Uvea making mats in which to' be
buried, aod every house . has a greater or
smaller pile of them rolled up among the
raiters, witn wmcn their owners will not
part for love or money. -.Wherever graves,
are. made, they, are bottomed with clean
dry sand brought from the seashore, and
sometimes sarcophagi are made of slabs of
soft sandstone, over .which, when the
bodies are placed within, a slab of the
same material is lowered, and the grave
filled in with earth. , , .... .
Formerly, cave sepulcbers were formed
by digging straight down for fifteen or
twenty feet, and then running a shaft hor
izontally for an equal distance, j In a hol
lowed out chamber at the end of the shaft
the body was laid, generally in a reclining
position. In the case of very old persons,
to whom it seemed. -desirable, to hint that
as they had outlived their usefulness it
would be decent for them to accelerate the
shuffling' off of this mortal coil, it 'was
common not to wait for, their decease, but
to put them in the hole .while, still alive.
leaving the aperture open, and. dropping

stated intervals. . . : n ,:;: t-
When the .food was observed to. be no
longer utilized, -the. natural -conclusion
was, that the inmates had said farewell to
mundane affairs, and, the hole was stopped
by rolling a stone over f it. and covering.it
with earth. By 'this 'considerate action
the veteran who lagged superfluous on the
stage was gently assisted to that better
land,, for . which the sagacity. ,of his relav
tives perceived that he was' so well fitted.
