AN IMPORTANT MEETING.
It is no exaggeration to say that the
meeting . which closed its proceedings
yesterday at Portland was the most im
portant event that ever happened in the
. history of that city and the whole Inland
Empire. The business men and capital
ists of Portland have at last awakened to
the realization of the fact that Portland's
o..nnr.. a a.
open river to the sea ; and that city has
volunteered to contribute a million and
a half toaccomnlinh this nhifwt. . A trans
portation company has already been in
cornorated with a canital . stock of two
million . dollars divided into ; eighty
thousand shares at twenty-five dollars
each. As at present outlined it will. be
emphatically a people's transportation
company and the fact that the shares
are placed at so low a price will place
them within the reach of men of limited
means. Thus what Eastern Oregon has
so long prayed for seems at last within
our reach. When hopes deferred made
the heart sick with impatience how often,
was it said : "When Portland wants an
vjwa river we biiuu nave it ana not uil
.then." Portland wants it now beyond a
question, and we shall have it beyond a
reasonable doubt. It is no time for re-'j
criminatipn:.but for congratulation and.
an open river is none the less . welcome
because Portland's necessity has become
our opportunity. Henceforth Portland's
interests will be ours and her commercial
supremacy our glory and her success our
DO WE NEED AN ,QPEN R I VERT
, There is an old proverb which says the
nearer the church the further, , from
grace, which might be parodied in this
fashion and applied to the Union Pacific ;
The nearer the, place of shipment the
, higher the freight. Last year a man in
Ne braska shipped three car loads of corn,
one to Spokane,' one to The Dalles and
Onfl tn Portland THa rahi finsilr'u-nA
, . , ------ . v "rl tJryrmm
Dalles sixty cents and to Portland fifty
cents. ' 1
A Portland merchant shipped a cargo
of freight from Bemen to , New Orleans,
thence by. rail, to. Portland at a . less' rate
than the same goods could be shinned
from Portland to Walla Walla. , A Dalles
lift w . UivreiUUlUlH
from New York by way of the Horn to
Portland. The cost from Portland, to
The Dalles was within a small fraction,
of being as treat as the cost fmm !fcw
YorkLto Portland. ... '. '"'J j
Time was, and not long ago either,
when the rate on wool from The Dalles
to Boston was $6.00 a '.' hundred ; at
the same time it was "$2.15 from, Port
land to Boston. Today the rate on wool
from Portland to Boston is half a cent a
pound ' cheaper than it is from. The
Dalles to Boston, and the -same is true
..... : It 1 : j i :
open river. " ( ' !
Now that a portage road around the
obstructions at The Dalles seems assured,
it behooves the people ;of . this -city to
bend every effort to have it ' placed on',
the Oregon side of the . river. The7ad-!
vantages that The Dalles would reap by
having this city .the western terminus of
the road are too apparent , to require,
mention. . The managers of the new
corporation will, however look upon the
place of location in a purely business,
light, and the mere question of a little
extra cost will not likely, cut my, im-
satisfied that a road pould not. be built J
r -- " is -. . . , i mo i iiu . uicaiiH
as cneapiy or nearly so on this side .of
the Columbia as on the Washington
side.: Be this as it inav :we must riot.
quietly acquieee in its location on the.
otner side till. we have satisfied ourselves
that its locatipn. in pregp is:, impracti
cable... Apart however from an v advan
tage The Dalles might receive from its
location here there are many other con
- siderations that might be urged.- - It is
essentially an Oregon scheme. It will
be built largely by Oregon money- and
Eastern Oregon will always contribute
, more to its support . than t Washington,
oecause nas more to contnhute., As
we have before suggested a branch line
running to Wasco in Sherman county or
to a point still farther south would ab
solutely control the entire traffic of the
magnificent agricultural county fit Sher-
man, wnile the road now being surveyed
from this city to the fossil coal fields
country of immense ; territory and re
sources. These two roads together with
the portage from this city to Biggs or
Grant's as might be found most conven
ient would make a system , that would
undoubtedly pay from the moment of its
existence and would itself , warrant the
whole proposed outlay of two millions if
no other territory, ever .contributed a
pound of freight.
THE NEW CHARTER.
An Act . To ' Incorporate Dalles City
and to Define its Powers.
Be it enacted by the Legislative Assembly
of the State of Oregon:
Sec. 39. Any other officer of the cor
poration may be removed at any. time

what shall constitute the same,, and
charges may be made and filed by any
one. Before any such officer can be re
moved and his office , declared . vacant
under this section, the charge or charges
must be substantially reduced to writing
and verified substantially the same, as a
complaint in any civil action in the cir
cuit court of the 'State. The charges
must be filed with the recorder, .and at
the next . regular ' meeting after such
charges are so filed the recorder must
call the attention of the charges filed ; if
the council shall then deem the charges
of sufficient importance they shall then
or at some subsequent time fix a time
and place for hearing the charges bv a
written resolution and at the same time
ditect the recorder to forthwith prepare
and certify a copy of the charges and a
copy of. the resolution and deliver them
to the marshal for service. The marshal
shall forthwith serve such copies in sub
stantially the same manner as a sum
mons is served in a civil , action in the
circuit court of the State, "and shall at
tach his return either to the original
charges or resolution. A certified copy
of the charges and resolution shall be
served upon the accused at least -. six
days before any hearing is had thereon.
On the arrival of the time fixed for the
hearing, by the resolution, if the accused
has been duly served, the hearing
shall be proceeded with at once ; if due
service has not been made the council
shall fix some future time for the hear
ing, by written resolution, a certified
copy of which shall be served upon the
accused as in the first insancn, and so
on from time to time until; due. service
has been made. . Whether the accused
shall appear or. not the proof of the
charges must be submitted to the coun
cil. " No officer ; against whom charges
are preferred shall preside over the coun
cil nor vote upon the question of his re
moval. In the event, of the absence, or
refusal of the mayor or the president to
preside, the council shall appoint one of
their number to preside, who' shall riot
thereby be deprived of , his vote. . .The

Sld hi Bod TwMtT-Mreti Tnn,
One of the most remarkable.
known is that of John Bond, of Mitch
ell, a negro about 50 years old, who has
been in bed about twenty -seven years.
When quite a yoong man he," with bis
mother and two sisters, lived on a farm
near Paoli, Indv The mother determined
to sell the farm arid move to MitcheU.
This raised the ire of the son j(John), and
he then threatened if the farm was sold
he woold go to bed' and never get up.
No attention, however, was paid to his
threats, and the farm was sold and the
family moved here. On the night of
their; arriTal John 'retired, as usual, bat
in the morning be refused to get up, and
no. amount 'of . entreaty conld persnade
him!, anid orf twenty-Be rea years he' has
stabbomry carried oat his purpose not
to get up, with one exception, that being
when his mother, died a .few years ago.
" In the ' middle' of the night, as the
neighbor 1 women were : watching with
the corpse, they, were startled oat of
their wits by a ghostly figure appearing
and silently kneeling by the coffin side.
Some of than, not being aware of John's
existence, rapposed it was a real spook.
When he first took to his bed it caused a
great deal of comment. Physicians ex
amined hhn and pronoanoed him in per
feet health. ETery means was tried to
get' hhn ' np. but all failed. A cry of
burglars did not move him, and an alarm
of fire did not cauee him' to badge. As
the years have passed the people have
lost interest in the case, and are only re
minded, of his existence by seeing bird
carried on a stretcher to the polls on the
occasion of some important election'. His
health has been gradually TMTfng him
far the last few years, and he lies in his
bed, speaking to no one unless spoken to,
when he win give intelligent answers to
all questions, addressed to hi Indian
apolis Journal. . s
A Boy's Bran Act.
Dennis F. McCarthy, a 16-year-old
Brookhne lad, ; performed an act the
other day . which' not only displayed
courage, but a rare presence of mind, in
the saving of . the , life of a 2-year-old
child of . Mr. Joseph Cariero. -
-Young McCarthy was at work repair
ing the roof of his father's barn off Boyis
ton street, which' abuts oh the village
brook. " 'A platform leads from Mr. Mc
Carthy's house to the top of the bam.
The child walked along this platform to
the. roof, and. before ! he. was noticed fell
into the brook, a distance of about
'Theiwater was about three feet deep,
and the enrent was quite strong.
: ' The' child's cries attracted McCarthy's
Uterition. and, realising the situation, he
jumped from the bo tiding to the Boston
and Ajbany raibroad track.
In order to save the child's Kfe he bad
to act promptly," for 7tte arch where the
brook enters ,lito" tonnal' was 6nJy','lbo
