JIM HILL DROPS OUT.
Hasrno Furtier Use For The Transcoii-
' . 1 tinental Scheme. :; ;
WILL MAKE ' RATES TO SPOKANE.
Explanation of The Workings of The
"Rate in Past Affairs.
ADOPTING THE MILEAOK SYSTEM.
Will Make Spokane tbe Jobbing Centre
of the Northwest The Hungarian
Zone System. '
Spokane, Aug. 31. A Chicago special
says no other line baa yet followed the
example of the Great Northern in with
drawing from the Transcontinental as- i
sociation. Word came, however, from i
St. Paul to Spokane which will render !
it impossible for the Northern Pacific to
retain its membership after the Great
Northern retires. President Hill has
definitely abandoned the policy of rate
making in force on the transcontinental
lines. He announces be will make rates
based on mileage alone between St. Paul j
and -the Pacific. At present nil the
transcontinental rates.., to the.. Pacific
coast terminal points are based on ocean
competition. For instance a commodity
from St. Paul to Portland over the North
ern Pacific might take a rate of $2 per
100 pounds. The same commodity ship-,
ped over the same line to Spokane might
and probably would take a rate of $2.50
or more per 100 pounds. Spokane is 375
miles east of Portland, but the Northern
Pacific would carry the same commodity
through Spokane and 375 miles farther
for 50 cents per 100 less. - , ,
This system of rate-making applies on
all transcontinental lines, and has been
approved by the interstate commerce
commission in spite of the long and
short haul section of tbe act.- The rea
son given for this system, and which " is
considered good by the commission, is
that lines are compelled to make un
reasonably low rates to terminal points
to meet ocean competition. Were they
to use these terminal rates as the - max-'
ima, and scale down all interior points
back to zero as a starting point, the
whole svstem of roads would be non-
paying. Either., the ' transcontinental
lines must abandon-business to seaboard
points or arrange in some way to make up
the deficit for low terminal rates. It is
this Bystem. which the Great "Northern
intends to t overthrow ; by . its mileage
charges ' --'."- "; ; " '
The note of victory - from Spokane
could almost be heard in Chicago. ' It
proposes to become the jobbing center
of the northwest, and to utterly eclipse
the- pretensions, of .Portland, Tacoma
and Seattle. Spokane is the competing
point of the Great Northern and North
ern Pacific, and, of course, reduced rates
must be met by-the latter. "".-The North-
hern Pacific will also bo forced to aban
don its present system of making inland
rates by meeting the rales of the Great
Northern. . This, in turn, will either
drive it but of the association, or compel
the other transcontinental lines to aban
don their local inland additions to a
through basis. Chicago officials are cu
rious to know how President Hill will
scale his basis of rates. It is, thought
he may attempt the application of the
Hungarian zone system, making the
same rates, for - instance, to all points
within the same cone.
- , - Not Creditable to Either Party. .
' Astorian. " The Washington : demo
crats, as well as the republicans, have
given too much importance to the Seat
tle ditch scheme. It looks as if tbe
people of Seattle were resolved to make
tbe state "Tiow down" and 'worship this
absurd attempt to procure public money
for a local so-calfed improvement. It is
not creditable to the common sense of
either party that they have tolerated a
canal plank in their platform for a mo
ment: The convention fights on this
subject will only serve to warn congress
against the miserable scheme to pro
mote a real estate deal at the public ex
penBe. . .. , . - - - . . -
; ;'- ' - Aa Old Plow'.- ' '
West Side. F.A.Patterson brought
down an old plow from his house, and
it is now on exhibition at O'Donneli &
Irvine's hardware store. It was brought
across the. plains in 1847 by J. . David
son. This plow is of the wooden mole-
board pattern, and looks very ancient
beside an Oliver chilled plow of modern
date. -: .' ' . . : V V 5 , : S
Canada Will Come In.
St, Loui8 Globed -G. C. Mostgomery,
a resident of Toronto, says : "I live in
Canada,' and I do know that annexation -to
the'United States is only a question
of a very few years." The youngest gen
eration are entirely too broad-gnaged to
long remain the wards of royalty. The
necessities of trade will compel Canada
to apply for admission to the union.
With Canadaon the southeast, United
States on the south, and Alaska on the
west, that vast and little known coun
try called British America will be devel
oped, and will fall naturally under the
stars and stripes.- It would be impoli
tic to allow England to retain it under
such conditions. There are some of the
greatest timber belts ini' the world, and
many rich mines awaiting cleyelopment
in that vast territory. ' There will one
day be great American cities COO miles
north of St. Paul.
. Weather Report. ..;
Portland, Aug. 31. The official
weather bulletin yesterday, says of east
ern Oregon: Threshing operations are
in full blast in most counties. . In Grant
county the prospects for wheat are said
to be good, while in Baker county wheat
is tdrning out' from twenty to forty-five
bushels, per acre. The general tone of
the reports concerning the wheat crop is
more cheerful. What little hay yet re
mains to be cut is being harvested with
great activity', the weather being excep
tionally fine. . Very little change is
noted in the condition of fruit as com
pared with last week.; In some counties
it is said to be looking well." Corn could
vet be improved some by a timely rain,
but not so with potatoes wbich are fast
drying up. . ......
- . - Bogus Money. - "
Telegram. ' Reports are received from
points up the valley that counterfeiters
are circulating bogus coin and green
backs. Persons handling mouey these
times would do well to keep their eyes
wide open.- In some places 'they . are
using tbe old dodge by changing a $2
hill to $10 by pasting the figure ten from
a cigar stamp on a $2 bill, and when the
work is skillfully done it is said that one
can hardly tell the difference. - The bo
gus silver coins are lighter than the gen
uine and have a slick feeling and can be
detected by their ring. -' In some instan
ces the doctored S2 bills have passed as
$10 bills through . many hands before
being noticed. - - :

provable that a -board of officers may
visit uis coast and decide upon a loca- I
boo. Ifhey do come, a heavy responsi
bility rests upon the local chamber of
commerce tbprovide them with every
facility for seeing the advantages of the
Columbia in choosing a site.. This would
be such a splendid prize for Oregon that
no pains must be spared to bring it here.
Washington and California will make a
vigorous contest, but between the two
Oregon can show the best inducements.
" ' A Galena MlneV '
Grant County ISews. . The most cur
ious discovery made in the Slocan dis
trict is what is known as Con Dough
erty's galena farm. This remarkable
strike is on the flat bench which extends
back from the creek shore to the south
of Four-Mile 'creek. - In the midst
of the-.- swamp Mr. -.Dougherty,
found rich croppings of galena, and he
and bis partners are digging out ore like
farmers digging potatoes. :
Tbe Priee of Wheat. . -
lieview. The sale of 21,000 bushels of
wheat' was effected at Garfield the other
day. Tbe price'paid was 55 cents sacked.
The Enterprise states -that the sale was
not considered at all .favorable, as the
grain was of a superior quality and at
tbe same time wheat was selling for 57
cents at Pullman.
Come to Oregon. .
- Astorian. People who will not go to
Europe on account of the cholera should'
resolve to see more of their own coun
try , including fair and ' fruitful Oregon.
They will, gain more' useful knowledge
by such tours than they conld acquire

BliOlTG-nX. HIM. UP TO- T1IK .I'OLK
Witb Such Force that It Took the Vic
tim's Breath A way and ltendered .
Bosxojr, Aug. 31. Gilbert G. Rice, tha
man whose sufferings at the hands of
Tennessee miners did so much to turn
sentiment against them, arrived here
yesterday to consult a specialist on his
ailments resulting from maltreatment
by tbe miners. Rice said the men cap
tured him while he was investigating
land he, was about to -purchase, and
thinking he was a spy set about to devise
means to punieh ' him.. It was- decided
to tie him by the neck to a freight car ,
Sidetracked, on a steep incline, with .jrf
lariat one of the miners had. ' Rice m
reciting the story, says thedecreidn wa
quickly carried out. "'.'.'The noose was ;
drawn around my neck and the brakes
loosened. ..One of the miners, dropped
the noose from my neck to my waist. ;
As the car started th? lariat straightened
out and I took a step forward. Then -.
another and another, until I found it
difficult to keep up. -The "sides of "the -.'
track werei lined with a jeering - mob Ofv .
ininer8."As Jthe car passed they cheered ;
wildly. - There was a sudden turn as the
car flew around the curve?, and at the '
end of the taut lariat I felt myself flying
through space." . I had gone off on a tan
gent and the rope near the car struck a "
telegraph . pole with a suddeness that
made me dizzy. The rope wound itself
.rapidly around the pole. There was a
sharp report, the lariat parted and the
car went on; As I swung around the
pole the lariat grew shorter and shorter 7'
until I was brought flat up to the pole "
with a force that took . my breath and
rendered me insensible. Hours later I -revived
and got . free from the lariat
which had torn ray flesh about my loins
into Bhreds. ,Two ribs were' broken anij
I was bruised all over".. I found a squat- V
ters hut and two days" later was in Knox- :
ville. L have been very ill ever since. '
My weight has fallen from 205 pounds, " T
three weeks agoj-to 150 now -and the -shock
has turned my hair white.''" '
T-Kot Good Politics.
Oregonian. In the state of Washing-'
ton the political . game is. so made up -.
that Seattle will vote one way land Ta
coma the other, in the state election.
And on the issue that ' divides these-'
cities there will be a good deal of di
vision throughout the state. ' The re
publican party is committed to Seattle's
local scheme ; - the democratic party has
declared against it. The " further this ,
issue is pushed the more it will tend to
array against Seattle . the remainder of :
the state, and to diminish the chances,
of the republican party. It was not
good politics on the part of' the republi
cans to put matters into this shape. .-
. The Oregon Vote.
Oregonian. The vote,bf Oregon in'
November wii be aljeut 80,000. The
Weaver party will have about 20,000.
Probably 2,500 votS will be cast for the
prohibition, tioket. There will romain
57,500 to tie divided between Harrison
and Cleveland, and the vote for Ha?rison'
may be set down :at over 30,000. " .- -
