The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
SHIP BY THE "REGULATOR.
As rapidly as men and means can
push the work is the Regulator approach-

land. The portage railroad at the ( as-
cades will be finished and a gallant
steamer from below will meet the first
load from the Regulator and give it
quick transit to its - destination. 'The
day that the first trip of this staunch;
.little craft makes the first trip will be
the day on which a new era of commer
cial supremacy will dawn for The Dalles.
But to achieve the best results the mer
chants and shippers as well an the en
tire traveliug public should give their
patronage entirely to the boats: of The
Dalles, Portland -and Astoria Navigation
company. Not a pound of merchandise
to or from Portland should be shipped
by the Union Pacific road or boat. .The
freight rates will he dollars and dollars
per ton less by the new line than by the
railroad as at present operated, but the
U. P. will undoubtedly meet the re
duced rates and no doubt in many in
stances will give shippers better terms
than the Regulator folks can. But
such terms should not be accepted. To
a man onr merchants should stand by
the home company. No person who de
sires to live and do business in The
Dalles can afford not to ship by the river.
If a merchant continues to patronize the
railroad after the home line is in opera
tion, the fact should be made known and
the patronage of the entire public be
withdrawn from him until he comes in
to line and does his share toward build-'
ing np the business of The Dalles. The
new boat line means cheaper freight
rates, and that means cheaper groceries
and goods for this section of the country
and higher prices for wheat, wool and
produce. ' That can only be accomplish
ed by giving the new line the patronage
it deserves and of right should have.
The line can not be run if it is not pat
ronized, because the stockholders do
not expect to operate it for the mere I
sport of running a steamboat, and un
less it cam be made to pay it will not do
the good to The Dalles that it should.
Xet's all unite to make the line a suc
cess and everybody in , this city and
the country tributary thereto, will gain
The merchants of Portland as well
should give ' their patronage to The
Dalles' company's line. It means in
creased trade for the metropolis, in that
cheap rates will bring business there
that .would go elsewhere. The wide
awake "lien of that city have subscribed
liberally to the capital stock of The
Dalles, Portland and Astoria Navigation
company and will therefore throw all
the business they can, to that line. The
outlook seems to be very bright for the
" AFFIXING THE GREAT SEAL.
The secretary of state has no right to
affix the Great Seal of the United States
to any paper without a "warrant" from
the president authorizing him to do so.
This warrant is always filed with the
document so sealed, and reads as fol-4-
"I authorize and direct the secretary of
state to cause the great seal of the
United States to be affixed to whatever
the document may be) dated this day,
and signed by me, and for so doing thus
shall be his warrant.
" President of the United States."
The Great Seal is affixed to nothing
but treaties, . proclamations, commis
sions, pardons and passports. The old
seal, which had been in use since the
foundation of the government, was worn
out and replaced by a new one in the
early part of 1886. It is a curious fact
that the old one which was used so long
"was imperfect and never did answer to
- the description set down in the statutes.
Although using the seal is supposed to
be a solemn affair, and the penalty for
its improper use is so tremendous, it is
left in charge of a clerk, just like any
other piece of furniture, and it Is doubt
fur if the secretary sees it twice a year.
During the early days of the government
it was guarded with much vigilance, as
its appearance upon any document was
known to give that document - the force
"of law; but now the people look to the
newspapers and not to a piece" of parch-
. ment for their information. - 1 -

the alliance is a powerful political ma

better equipped for campaign work than
either of the old parties. In Dakota,

it is really the dominant party, for it Is
in a position to dictate terms to the
other parties. Tn Wisconsin. Michigan,

day that the white faced gelding lowered,

A story 1m told of a veteran member of
the oar, which is one of the sort of stories
that one does not hear every week or every
month. The hero of the story Is a very old
gentleman; he has passed the fourscore,
and though he has the reputation of hav
ing, had a somewhat animated career, and
to have scorned very few of the pleasures
of life, lie has as yet made . no motion to
ward carrying bis case up. to a higher
court. .-. Not long ago a younger, lawyer, in
conversing with the old gentleman, sug
gested that a great many changes must
have taken place since he began the prac
tice of the law.
. "Yes, yes," said the old. gentleman? "a
great many wonderful changes have taken
place in my lifetime.' Why, the infernal
regions have cooled down a great deal since
I was born." . -
The you UK lawyer, not long . afterward,
repeated this remark to another veteran
member of tne same bar, who knew the
first old gentleman's peculiarities and
weaknesses very well.
"Did he say that?" asked the second vet
''He did," said the young man.
"Well, now I understand; that's what
he's been waiting for all these years!"
