The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
A FLOURISHING NEWSPAPER.
One of the beat papers that comes to
this office is the Review, of Spokane,
Washington. It is as bright as the city
in which it is published and as reliable
as the everlasting hills that surround
that handsome city. No paper on the
coast has had as successful a career as
the Review. Less than tnree years ago
it was purchased by its present owners
and Mr. F. C. Goodwin placed in charge
as manager. It had less than one
thousand subscribers at that time but
the list began very rapidly to increase
with the improvements which were
made. Mr. Goodwin proved to be the
right man in the right place and he made
the paper a valuable property. It has
now a fine perfecting press that prints
12,000 copies per hour and a finer and
more complete outfit than "any paper in
Oregon or Washington, surpassing the
(hegonian in many particulars. The
daily circulation lias reached at least
6,000 and no other instrumentality has
been of so much service in building up
Spokane as has the Review. It is bright,
newsy and fearless and would be a credit
to a city of 100,000 inhabitants.
HE WAS NOT A CITIZEN.
At 4 :30 Tuesday afternoon last, the
bupreme court handed down its opinion
in the case wherein J. M. Thayer con
tested the title of James E Boyd to hold
the office of governor of Nebraska;, it
being that Boyd is not a citizen of the
United States ; that the lieutenant gov
ernor cannot inherit from one who could
not qualify as governor, and that John
M. Thayer is the governor and must now
requalify. As soon as possible after the
rendering of the decision Thayer repaired
to the east room of the supreme court
and requalifiod. Chief Justice Cobb ad

Carl Schurz, after an eventful career as
a Boldier, a- diplomat, a statesman,
lecturer arid editor, is now managing one
of the great lines of ocean steamships.
The ex-cabinet minister has been inter
viewed on fast ocean traveling, and says
that he is a believer in fast time; in fact
he predicts that steamers will yet be
built which will make the trip to Liver
pool in three days.

Portland Evening Telegram.
A Dalles paper states ' that there are
sixteen tw eighteen fish-wheels between
that city and Celilo, all waiting for higher
water and the expected ran of salmon.
One wheel last, year caught as much as
three tone of fish in the space of twenty
minutes. Twenty tons a day is no un
common record for one wheel, and as
high as fifty tons a day have been caught.
These are of course exceptional runs, Dut
the business with several, if not all, these
wheels is a big one. The price obtained
for these fish, while small in the abstract,
is, to some- -of the wheelmen, very large
in the aggregate.
This business is certainly one for
proper consideration and control by law.
The governor has taken the position that
this species of fishing should be prohib
ited altogether ; and if, as is now gen
erally believed, these salmon bound up
stream contribute to the next year's
supply, it certainly should be regulated,
if not altogether restricted.
These fish go to spawning grounds far
up the river, and, if allowed to do so,
would contribute incalculable numbers
for future seasons; but they are thus
caught and indiscriminately destroyed to
serve the selfish greed of a few fish-wheel
men, who are yearly diminishing the
supply, and hasteningthe time when the
Colombia will be devoid and destitute of
a great source of wealth for the state and
for the northwest.
The fish-wheel lobbv have been able to
manipulate legislation in the past, so far
as it anectea their snare ol the business;
but it should not be permitted to do so
any longer. The interests of the state
and of the northwest should be of para
mount interest to those of a dozen or
twenty men who have taken advantageof
nature to gain a fortune, and plunder
not only the present but future genera
tions. The next legislature should banish the
hsn-wheels of the Columbia
Shown By Wire Nails.
In 1875 the first wire nails were made
in the United States. The total product
was 1000 kegs which sold for ten cents a
pound. In 1882 the total product was
60,000 kegs, the price being 8.32 cents a
pound, the duty one cent. The congress
which sat in 1882-3, increased the duty
on wire nails to 4 cents a pound." In 1884
tVe total product was 120,000 kegs and
the Drice was 2.96 nentn a nnimH. Tn
October 1890 congresa reduced the duty
to two cents a pound. This shows that
the effects of raising the duty on steel
nails were to stimulate production, in
six years, irom 120,000 kegs to 2,200,000
kegs and reduce the price from $7,44 a
keg to $2.96 a keg.
Professor F. H. Snow has charge of an
appropriation of $33,500 made by the last
Kansas legislature for the extermination
of the chinch bugs from the wheat fields
of that state. About two years ago he
discovered a fatal ' disease among these
pests, a disease not .more deadly . than,
contagious. Acting upon this discovery,
be began to spread what he calls "bug
cholera" by exposing fresh bugs to dis
eased ones, and sending those thus in
fected to different sections of the state.
Live bugs are secured and placed in jars
with the sick creatures, and within three
days these are ready to send out .to
spread the disease in the infested fields.
These sick bugs have been sent -out by
thousands, .and so successfully that the
Kansas farmer will soon no longer be de
picted as anxiously regarding his grain,
tearful lest "the hopeful sheaves: prove
chaff." The chinch bugs have always

Improved Envelope Folding Machine.
A new envelope folding machine pos
sesses several novel features, including
the use of boxed or inside cams, which
obviate the necessity for springs in pro
ducing the different movements of the
mechanician!, and thus increase the
smoothness of working and durability, of
the apparatus. By means of an ingenious
adjustable appliance, the envelopes have
any desired amount of bulk or roundness
"t the edges imparted to them. This
operation makes the envelope more con
venient for use and aUo adds - to its
strength by lessening the liability to split
at the edges. .,
After folding, the envelopes are trans
ferred to wired divisions on the periph
ery of a revolving wheel at the rear of
the machine, where they, are dried by
currents of hot or cold air forced through
perforators in pipes coiled at the sides of
the wheel.. The envelopes are afterward
dropped into race and gradually ad
vanced to a table where an attendant in
waiting1 to band ' them. All the opera
tions, from the placing of the blanks to
the receipt of 'the finished envelope, are
entirely automatic, and a single machine
is capable of making from 80,000 to 40,000
envelopes per day. New York Commer

.Statural fiai la .Iron Workiu(. ;-.:-
r Among the more recent improvements
in the manufacture of iron and steel, the
use of gaseous fuel stands conspicuous.
The idea of first converting the fuel into
a combustible gas, and conveying this to
the point where heat was -required ; and
there igniting it, is a Very old one, and,
in one form or another, it has been (em
ployed for over a thousand years, but it
is only within the present -century that
tne manizoia advantages or gas as a
metallurgical fuel 'have become fully
recognized by the iron and steel workers
of the world. The early gas furnaces
used in-Silesia,. Sweden, and other Eu
ropean - -countries were but enlarged
modifications of Greber's Tower of . Athaj-
nor, and, although they were a great
improvement on. the furnaces in which
solid fuel was burned on a grate, yet
they were not able to produce a tempera
ture sufficiently high and controllable to
satisfy the demands of the rapidly de
veloping iron and steel industries. Pop

I Q. " Jefferson, of Toronto. Canada.
thus writes to The Mail of that city:
lne following ease has come tinder inv
notice:. A farmer married his cousin,: and
both possessed all their faculties, and
they have nine children, of whom . five
daughters were born deaf mutes. .Three
of these daughters married speakine and
hearing husbands. - The first 'one -has
three deaf mute children out of five, the
second one has two deaf mute children
out of three and the third has one deaf
mnte child out of. two. This proves that
Professor Bell, of Washington, United
States, has made a mistake by publish
ing largely that the intermarriages of
deaf mutes bring a deaf mute race, when
the fact is that deaf ; mute children pro
ceed from married cousins possessing all
their faculties. In the Belleville deaf
mute school there are 240 pupils, and not
one of them has deaf mute parents.
There are - many other similar cases in
England and the States."
