Buffalo, N. Y., and The Dalles', Of.,
are becoming somewhat allied by . busi

the incorporation there of the Vanden

The object of the concern is stated to be
to conduct a' general .business ash ana
lytical, consulting , and 'manufacturing
chemists in all departments of the in
dustry and to sell chemicals and scien
tific apparatus. The amount of capital
stock is $25,000, divided into shares of
$50 each. The duration is to be fifty
years, several citizens of The Dalles
are identified with this incorporation.
: Up on 8-Mile lives a genialld farmer
who has such an abundant supply of
this world's goods that hia orchards,
his fields and his barns are overstocked.
His berry patch is laden: with luscious
fruits, going to waste for want of a mar
ket. . A party of pleasure-seekers from
The Dalles stopped with him a few
days ago, and when they started on the
return, offered to recompense him for
the accommodation. He politely re
fused the proffer, and pressingly invited
them to come again, to come often and
bring their friends with them.. Can
such another incident of 'fraternity be
found outside of . Wasco county, where
people generally are proverbially noted
for their genuine, unstinted hospitality?
The Dalles All a Park.
How to appreciate the beauty and
health-giving qualities of The Dalles
surroundings, is sometimes difficult to
the man whose occupation .pins him
down to a daily routine. But an occa
sional paragraph like this, from a Chi
cago paper, brings with it a realizing
sense of the noble situation of a home
which, like The Dalles, is all a park.
The Chicago News says : "It is at euch
times as these, when : the mercury ' in
the thermometer rises to the. top of -the
glass, that people realize the " full value
of the magnificent parks' of the city.
At all times the parks are 'beautiful.
They . are in cheerful, contrast to the
granite-paved, iron-spanned streets of
the business quarter. They are incom
parably ' more -beautiful' than the most
beautiful residence streets. But while
they are thus attractive at -all times.
they do not assume a true utilitarian as
pect save when a breathing place is not
only desirable, but absolutely neces
sary. There can be little doubt that
during the last few days the parks have
done., very much to keep down the
death rate. They have done much for
the health of the citizens th at the doc
tors could not do, learned and efficient
as they are. . '. .
A Portland Youth.
Portland is the home of the boys and
girls aid society, but , judging, from the
Telegram last . evening, Portland is so
busy looking after the children of her
neighbors that she does not observe the
neglected, ones at home. The Telegram
thus describes a Portland youth smoking
a cigarette "in violation, of law :" "To
day a small boy, not to exceed 8 years
of age was Observed smoking a cigarette
with a great deal of relish. . He was a
regular street Arab shoeless, coatless,
dirty' and ragged. An old broken,
bleached, dilapidated straw hat but
meagerly shaded his sun-burned and
freckled face, while thera was a gener
ally tough and slouching air about this
juvenile exile from homo and moral in
fluences. It was somewhat amusing to
see this little gamin take a package of
cigarettes out' of his pocket, carefully
pick one out and replace the bunch ;
then' to witness the cool nonchalence
with which he took a match and. struck
it on the leg of bis ' trousers, and rro
ceeded to ignite the cigarette and puff
away as uig as me. . ,

thought his dignitywould .be compro

indignantly refused. Chief Peo talks
fair English, but he had to fall back
upon his native tongue in order to ex
press himself. That portion of his re
marks fit for publication might be trans
lated about like this:. "I've had mv
shoes blacked by a white man in New

THE PLOT TH1CKKN8.
Is This One of the Knotty Things Major
HssdbDry Was Looking for?
Yesterday's Oregonian contains this
"innocent-appearing" dispatch from
Washington: ; ; '";
; -. ' BIGHT IIOUBS A DAY. ' ' : .
The navy . ' department ;' has about de
cided to advertise for bids' for the con
struction of the Puget sound dry -dock,
A - telegram from Branh&aii, the low
bidder, from Seattle, states! that he'! can
give all the bonds required-if c, bo is
awarded the contract, but the new eight
hour law which is , in force, has deter
mined the officers having the matter in
charge to read vertise. This new law
prohibits the officers of the government
from awarding contracts to any person
who . purchases material of any kind
from any person who does not have in
force, in his business, the eight-hour
system. All government contractors
will have to be bound by that law now,
and it might make a material difference
in the course of constructing the dock.
The same law must be observed on all
government work, including the locks at
the cascades and the Portland public
building, when work begins on that. -
HOW IT WORKS.
An act of congress, ' approved : August
1st, provides that no officer or agent of
the government in charge of any govern
ment work shall require or permit any
man employed upon euch work to labor
more than eight hours per day, under
penalty of not more than $1,000 fine nor
more than six months' imprisonment.
The act does not apply to contracts let
before its passage. In the case of the
government steamer Cascades, em ployed
in towing rock from here to the jetty,
arid in many other cases, this law,
which appears to have been framed es
pecially for passage in the year of a
presidential election, is going to inter
fere with the progress of work, and
cause it to cost a great deal more than
originally estimated. The law does not
say that 10 hours' wages shall be paid
for eight hours work. . ; T
