The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
BUSINESS IS BUSINESS.
The Chronicle was not mistaken when
' it intimated i a few days ago that the
capitalists of Portland were treating with
coldness, if not indifference, the project
of raising $2,000,000 to open up the
Columbia river. The Oregonian of yes
terday referring to some remarks made
in these columns, very courteously and
at the same time very frankly tells us
why this is the cane. "An undertaking
like this requiring a large amount of
money is purely a business matter. The
men who put in the money will insist on
s cbance to make money out of it. But
the plan, they say, virtually forbids
them to make money and moreover,
would withhold from them the control of
the line. Capital, we are poliieiy in
formed, hesitates to subscribe on these
. conditions." - The Oregonian protests
against being considered personally "in
different" and most earnestly avows its
desire that the situation were such that
it could "enthiiHinflriRnllV' and mnnrnw,
ously shout for the proposition." There
cannot be a shadow of doubt that ' the
situation is precisely as the. Oregonian
puts it. Men may bawl -. themselves
hoarse about mossbackism and lack of
nterprise, ' but when . It comes to the
raising of a cool two million, human
nature1 asserts itself, and capitalists with
out whom so great an amount cannot be
be raised will refuse to risk . their money
where they, cannot have a voice in con
trolling it, or the hope of the best possi-
' ole returns. The building of an orphan
age or the endowment of a college will
relax the purse-strings of sentiment or
philanthropy but a portage railroad al
ueii a Denencem institution is not a
benevolent -one, and if. -built at all by
private subscription must be built on
the lines of a purely business transaction.
It is perfectly evident that without
Portland's help no scheme of half the
magnitude of that which the new corpo
ration contemplates can ever be accom
" plished and it is the part of simple wis
dom that , the company remove every
barrier that stands in the way of the free
investment of money in the enterprise.
If this is not done the Oregonian makes
it evident that the corporation in course
of formation (will die from lack of means
to carry its object into effect.

expenditure left in the hands of - a com

: When we read that Washington, .Colo
rado, West Virginia and Ohio have ap
propriated $100,000 each ; that Missouri
has appropriated $150,000 . and expects
to double that sum ; that California will
ive $300,000 and Illinois a round million
we feel our cheeks burning with very
ehame at the thought that Oregon should
not be represented. We have have no
desire to see the show if Oregon is not in
A WOOLEN MILL.
Our readers are aware that the board
of trade of The Dalles is in ' communica
tion with a gentleman from Oregon City
who is seeking a location foB a woolen
mill. .They may also know that in pur
chasing the old Dalles Mill and - Water
company's plant the' city comes into
possession of the valuable water power
connected with the city flouring mill. A
woolen mill at this point would be of
great benefit to the city and if the gen
tleman referred to means ' business, -a8
we hope he does," we are assured the city
is , disposed to deal generously . with
him. ' ,""! '"' '
Many my Bterieahaye appalled many
minds. , The authorship of the .Junius
letters, the identity of the" man in the
iron mask, and of he who struck Billy
Patterson, have been puzzlers to the
public. 'The Bettes case is a worse jum
ble than any of them.- - Whether 'twas

the detective or the hired man, is all" a

The following extract from a private
letter by Henry Stegman, Esq. who re
cently - visited Germany, will enable
persons to ' compare the life of a poor
umu u una country wiin tuai oi one iu
Germany i .
'-In Germany they had . the hardest
winter known lor ou years, ana tne sui
fering an American citizen who has never
been there cannot imagine. The rich
are rich and high, but the poor, and
there are millions of them, God help
them. Many poor people begged the
potato pealings from the rich and took
them home and boiled them for them
selves and children to eat. And the
rich go to operas and ballets and grand
receptions in silk and satm, a fearful
contrast." Last winter this contrast' was
more apparent on account of the terrible
winter. Hog meat, live weight, sold to
butchers per 100 lbs. for o7 to 64 marks ;
4 marks equals one American dollar
Cows sell for 475 to 500 and 550 marks
Little pigs 6 weeks old bring 10 German
aoiiars. o cents of our money equals 1
Now you can see that the poor see no
meat on their tables for months at a
time. And wages are very low. I went
into wagon makers shops and looked
arouna, mat oeing my traae as you
know. Wages for a good skilled man 1
mark per day and board ; that means 25
cents per day and board. Tools to work
with are furnished.
I was glad when I saw land in New
York harbor and gave three cheers for
our noble country, and let me tell you I
like Klickitat and my home here better
now than ever, and now I am satisfied
But as Usual the Matter la Shrouded In
It is understood that in a few davs a
party of engineers will start, out from
here to go over the line of the old Hunt
system on the north side of the Columbia,
Just what the object is cannot be

It is surjDoaed thev want to nspprtjiin
the actual valueof the right-of-way and
franchise in general. There is no longer
any hope that the Northern Pacific will
build the line, hence the actions of the
engineers are all the more mysterious.

Our minister to Liberia, in a late re
port, says that our trade with that
country is improving.. His statement of
exports thence to the United States for
the last quarter of 1890 is as follows: 150
monkeys, $150 : parrots. $100 : 25 snakes.
$31.25: 200 pounds of coffee. $38.00: .7
jars preserved meat, $5.60; 1 piece of

The first experiments ? in artificial
propagation of lobsters were made sim
ply in glass jars with sea wafer that was
changed daily. Even under these priinir
tive conditions' the. newly, batehed.. fry
thrived and grew to bo of some size and

lobsters by hand can accomplish the pur
pose most quickly .by keeping the spawn
bearing females in suitable , ponds or

raising the animals on a larsre scale.
however, it would, be best to separate
tne eggs trom tne lobster and spread
them upon trays,1 allowing: the water to
percolate among them, as is done with
salmon ) eggs. : By this method ' much
trouble would be avoided, as well as the
expense of feeding the adult hen lob
' There is no reason apparent wherefore
tne same success should not be obtained
with lobsters as has been achieved with
salmon, which have been made to swarm
once more by myriads in streams depop
ulated i by . imprudent fishing. Already
the lobsters on the North Atlantic coast
are rapidly vanishing, and unless meas
ures are soon . taken for supplying their
place by artificial propagation there will
be none left. Apparently, however, it
will be entirely practicable to turn out
upon the depleted grounds many mill
ions of young lobsters yearly as soon as
proper plants for this object have been

as to cheapness, is that they prefer food
that is partially decomposed, and the
waste food of the towns, now thrown
away, might be most usefully employed
by the lobster hatcheries. Stale fish is
esteemed by lobsters an especial delicacy,
