Cascade Locks Jollification at The Dalles
A regulation old-time Fourth of July
celebration was indulged in b3- The
Dalles people last night, on receipt of
the news from Washington that the river
and harbor bill had passed congress, and
that the cascade locks contract system
was retained. Both bands, the Regu
lator and Dalles City, were out and
discoursed fine music, while Messrs. E.
Jacobsen & Co., and M. T.Nolan opened
their Fourth of July preserves, and
bomb, bomb, followed bomb, bomb,
with an occasional sparkling balloon,
frequent explosions of rockets and the
bnrning of flash chemical fires which
set the people ablaze with enthusiasm.
Between the music of the bands,
the . firing of rockets, bombs, etc.,
Judge Bradshaw, Capt. John W. Lewis,
and, others, got in a few opportune
speeches from the balcony in front of
Snipes & Kinersly s store,' and all taken
together, as a friend wrote to Hon. Bin
ger Hermann : "There was not a soul
in The Dalles last night but was glad
that Mitchell, Dolph and Hermann re
present Oregon in the nations capital."
All Bills raid.
The Fourth of July committee met
last night and audited all the bills. As
it usually happens, in such cases, the
committee has generally to go down in
their individual pockets and make up a
deficiency. In this case the generosity
of The Dalles public met all expenses,
and the com mittee, as well as the public,
are largely paid for the investment. At
no time in the history of the celebra
tions of July 4th has a committee met
with more hearty response. This is
in part perhaps owing to the fact that
the dear people did not know who the
committee was to "squander" . this
money. Now that the affair is all over
it may not be amiss to say that Mr.
Lochhead, Jud. S. Fish, H. J. Maier,
Sam" Campbell, M. T. Nolan, E. Jacob
sen und D. C. Ireland were the fellows
who did the grand, If the public is sat
isfied "we the committee" should be
likewise pleased, but as to any future
celebration committees, pardon us, but
it is the unanimous expression of this
committee to be excused. -

The rrk of Beef.
Beef buyers in Oregon hare formed a
combination against .beef sellers. This
is what Tub Chroxiclk has for some
time characterized as the - "butchers
trust.". But they are liable to come to
grief soon, as the Chicago market is ad
vancing rapidly. On the day after the
4th, 10,000 head sold in Chicago at an
advance of from 15 to 40 cents per head.
Choice to extra- Bteers selling at from
5.70(36.20 per cwt ; fair to good $4.50
4.90; Texana $2-252.30. This steady
upward tendency in the Chicago market,
has stimulated ' our Eastern Oregon
stockmen to take the advantage of the
high prices, and large shipments, will be
made in the near- future. Our heavy
dealers in beef cattle will meet the Port
land "beef trust," and go them one

And Still They Come.
It is a pleasure to hear that a party cf
gentlemen from the East contemplate
coming on an excursion to our city about
the first of August for the purpose of ex
amining fruit, mineral and other lands
in this vicinity with a view of investing
therein. We are informed that they are
men of strong financial standing and
that their impressions, favorable or
otherwise, will have great weight on
their return home. It is reasonable to
suppose that their taking this trip is the
result of some of the praise and enthusi
asm shown by their friends who visited
The Dalles a month or so ago and went
away well pleased with what they "had
seen. We would like to see our citizens
extend to these gentlemen a hearty wel
come on their arrival Jere : and :vt ;the4
same time endeavor to bring their - at
tention to some of the great resources of
our country. There is a strong rivalry
among the people of other cities to outdo
each other in conveying to' visitors
favorable impression of everything that
will serve to enrich or enhance the value
of their homes, and which, aside from
general hospitality, cannot help but re
sult in much good. Would it not be
well for our own people to practice the
same prudence and then take note of the
results as time works them out?

KOR AN OPEN KITTIEK.

If political and other undue influences
were entirely eliminated, the Seattle
ditch would not have an advocate east
of the Cascade mountains. It has no
general merit. The ieople of this sec
tion would never have considered it, had
it not been thrust upon their attention.
Their direct interest in the river and
harbor bill is confined to the work of
openiog the Columbia river, and they
have set their hopes upon the. comple
tion of that work. For these reasons
they are protesting against the Seattle
ditch. So far two papers in Eastern
Washington" have proved amenable to
rpolitical influence and have lifted their
voices in advocacy of the canal. In
times', gone by the editor of one of
these has been quick to challenge
the--' friendship of other journals to
the'; work of opening the river. It
is. ;not surprising, perhaps, that he
is now pleading for the ditch while
the papers and the people whose
motives he questioned are standing loy
ally by llio river; but it is not creditable
to him. The other paper is against the
river because Portland is for it, and
because "only that portion. of the river
in Oregon' is to be improved." The
Columbia at no point enters the state of
Oregon, and as a matter of fact the pro
posed boat railway was to have been
built in Washington. The truth is ap
parent to any person of preception!!
Seattle desires the opening of the canal
and the continued obstruction of the
river; the people east of the Cascade
mountains demand that Seattle shall
make her own local improvements, and
that the government shall be asked only
to make appropriations for works' of a
general character. Circulate a Columbia
river petition in Seattle and find how
many people would sign it; circnlate a
canal petition this eide of the mountains,
and find how many people want that

A Tremendous Barley Farm.
"We have now secured 250,000 acres
of land in TTorth Dakota for barley
farms, and next spring we will send
thousands of German emigrants to that
state from Ohio, West Virginia and In
diana," said Colonel O. M. Towner as
he discussed the future of this great
northern state. Colonel Towner is man
ager of what is best known as the Barley
syndicate of Chicago. During the last
two or three months the company has
succeeded in securing 250,000 acres of
land in North Dakota, "on which it is
proposed to place German farmers to
raise barley for malt - purposes. These
lands have been purchased ". in Nelson,
Norman, Towner, Ramsey, Steele and
Bottineau counties. -It
is the opinion of the managers of
this company that barley can be most
successfullj" grown in that state, and
they have the conviction of their belief
sufficiently to purchase these lands and
to send out emigrants from other states.
The Germans are chosen on account of
their, knowledge of barley culture for
this purpose." These-emigrants will not
be tenants, but owners of the land, it
being sold to them on easy terms. The
crops will be bought by the company
and shipped to all points where there is
a demand for barley. St. Paul Pioneer
To Celebrate the Marseillaise.
Another effort is being made by the
inhabitants of Choisy-le-Roi, outside of
Paris, to observe with much solemnity
and ceremonial what is vaguely called
the "Centenary of, the Marseillaise."
Choisy-le-Roi claims to possess the dust
of Rouge$ de ITsle the composer of the
hymn who was buried there in 1886,
his birthplace being Lons-le-Saulnier,.in
the department of the Jura; On this ac
count the members of the borough coun
cil consider that they have the right to
take the Initiative in organizing a Bight
Republican festival this year, as the Mar
seillase, under the title of "Chant de
Guerre de l'Armee du Rhin,"'was first
heard in 1792.
President Carnot is to be asked to be
come honorary president of the commit
tee of the fete, and appeals for funds
will be made to all the cities, and also
to communes which possess more than
4,000 inhabitants. . No date as yet has
been fixed for the celebration of the cen
tenary, to which it is presumed, that
every patriotic Frenchman will give his
sentimental and sympathetic if not
practical and pecuniary support.

In opening a package of books wrapped
in tin, the custom house inspectors cut
with a knife the binding, by Ruban, of a
"Poor Richard Almanack." The import
er made no claim for damage from the
government, paid the duty, returned the
book to Paris to be rebound and wrote
an ode to Diana of Poitiers, goddess of
book lovers, in gratitude for the miracu
lous escape of the text of his Almanack.
The book, rebound, came back fifteen
days ago. The owner supposes that it is
intact, but he does not know, and he
cannot learn even by paying the duty
again, for the official wants a new in
voice, and the importer is naive enough
to think that he can persuade the official
that the first invoice, which is filed at
the custom house, accurately describes
the book on its fourth voyage across the
Atlantic. New York Times.

A Russo-Chinese railway is reported
as the objective point of negotiations
now going, on between Russian and

the right to build a railway from Vladi

posed Siberian railway, across the north
ern boundary of Cores. to Tien-Tsin, and
thence to Shanghai. The alleged ob
ject is quick transit of Chinese tea and
silk to Europe; The Chinese, however,
are very jealous of Russian influence
in the east, and wilt probably decline
Russian aid in railway building. En
