Speaking of patent medicines, ' the
Judge says: "I wish to deal fairly and
honorably with all, and when I find an
article that will do what it is recom
mended to do, I am not ashamed to say
so. I am acquainted with Dr. Vander
pool (having been treated by him for
cancer), and have used his blood medi
cine, known as the S. B. Headache and
Liver Cure, and while I am 75 years old,
and have used many pills and other
remedies for the blood, liver and kid
neys, I must say that for a kidney tonic
..in Brights disease, and as an alterative
for the blood; or to correct the action of
the stomach and bowels, it is a very su
perior remedy, and beats anything I
ever tried. J. B. Nei'son,

Detroit, Sept. 30. R. L. Montgom

for smuggling Chinese into the country.

Indemnity For Tbe Sailors.
Xew York, Sept. 30. The information
given out at the state department that
Minister Egan will be in New York on
Tuesday, with $55,000 in gold, voted by
the government of Chili asan indemnity
for the Baltimore sailors, has . started
speculation as to the manner of distribu
tion. The families, of Turnbull and Rig
gen, who were the only memSers of the
crew killed, will have the largest share
of the indemnity. The eighteen others
who were disabled by wounds will come
next in order, and each of the thirty
six men who were imprisoned will
doubtless get something. A large claim
for indemnity has also been presented
by the merchant sailor who was subse
quently imprisoned and roughly treated
by the Chileans, but it is said that his
share of the funds will be very email.. .
War on Profesnor Holden.
Sax Jose, Sept. 30. At a meeting of
the chamber of commerce a resolution
was adopted requesting the regents of
the state university to remove Director
E. S. Holden, deploring the maltreat
ment by him of the astronomers under
him, and authorizing the appointment
of a committee to appear before the leg
islature and request that no appropria
tion be made for the Lick observatory
while Holden is in charge.
Still Headed for tbe Hills.
Sax Francisco, Sept. 30. The old
chestnut about Evans and Sontag, comes
from Daulton Station this time to the
effect that Evans and Sontag were seefc
there yesterday. Mrs. Faust, wife of a
section foreman, who formerly lived in
Visalia and knew Evans there, posit
ively identified Evans. Both men were
heavily armed and very cautious. They
were headed for the foothills. Detective
Smith and party arrived at Daulton on
tbe early morning train and will start
on their trail at once. From the hills
around a full view for miles can be had.
This will give the fugitives a great ad
vantage over the officers.
An Indian Scool.
CoL-ur d'Alene American. Fifty-one
years ago congress donated 600 acres of
land on the banks of the Cceur d'Alene
river, and each year since has paid $5,

tional institution there. The following

An Old Lesion Unheeded.
Nelson Miner. The fines inflicted by
the customs officials on the merchants
of this district have footed up to a very
considerable amount. While jsvithin
its rights, the dominion government has
come very near to killing tbe goose that
laid the golden egg. Money which has
been set aside for other purposes, and
which would all have been spent in
keeping the country moving along, has
had tb go in paying these fines, or taxes,
or whatever they fmay be called. The
dominion government is laboring under
a great mistake if it imagines that the
beat way to rear and get good value oat
of . her children is to jump on and knock
tbe stuffing out of them- daring their
The Water and Bail Combine.
Speaking of the reported combination
of the great Northern railway with
traffic lines on the lakes, a Duluth letter
to a Buffalo paper says :
Straws tell the direction of tbe rising
wind, the wise ones adjust their bear
ings accordingly. Your correspondent
has been chasing this combine phantom
clear up the lakes to Duluth, and at last
finds its substance to be about this. If
we can just live on our income lor the
present and be content to wait for ulter
ior results there is a rich vein of promise
opened. It assays somewhat like this.
A trace of wire-silver to bind together
the fragments of disconnected lines into
a solid northwestern trade ; a filament
of copper to electrify the new-forming
embryonic giant of transcontinental
commerce ; a base of iron to solidify the
whole; and a still finer chemical process
shows specks of gold dust that will sift
out into the laps of Buffalo 'tradesmen
as the increasing volume of this traffic is
shifted at their dock. and freight-yards
for distribution to the eftst,' northeast,
and southeast. The- Canadian Pacific
has been generously ministering to the
people of the Pacific coast- states for
some years, and our noble-hearted
Northern Pacific would have done like
wise to the people of the intermediate
states but for lack of facilities on the
lakes. Now this water. region of explo
ration parties must become the highway
of swift trade with the advent of these
new passenger ships. It means a re
vival of the luxurious inland water travel
of the old Mississippi steamer days. A
foreign' illustration of this point of inti
mate freight communication is France.
She began building canals and highways
100 B. C. and' has kept on ever since.
It is the secret of her manufacturing
supremacy in Europe and her marvelous
recuperative capacity. There is just the
same difference between a community
with poor channels for commerce and
one of the instances cited as between a
man with a torpid liver and chronic
headache and a man whose circulation
is in perfect order.
The above extract is so suggestive of
possible developments along the Colum
bia, when it is opened, a free river to
the Pacific ocean, that we reproduce it
as a sign pointing in the direction of the
near future when solid lines xf packets
for through freights may be established
between the Inland Empire and the
outer world. A significant fact is that
thirty of the finest new ships of this
year have been built for the lake traffic
at Superior and Erie ports exclusively.
Advertising for bids to complete the
Cascade canal, which may be done in
ten or twelve months when once begun ;
may call for many new water craft on
the Columbia with results here similar
to those above noted.
THE ASTORIA RAILWAY. .
The Same Old Snake in the Grass Mr.
Mallory Goes to Ogden-
Mr. Mallory, of Mason, Ehrman &Co.,
passed through The Dalles at 12 o'clock
last night for the, purpose of meeting
people at Ogden to have a conference
concerning the suspension of work on
the Astoria and Portland railway. He
feels confident that matters will be ar
ranged in a few days satisfactory to
Corey Bros. Mr. Mallory informed a
representative of The Chronicle that it
is some satisfaction to the managers to
ascertain definitely who tbe silent ene
mies of the project are, that have pre
vented the completion of financial ar
rangements on the part of Goss and
Schofield. It is the same old snake, that
has heretofore laid in the grass to
frighten off timid ones by its death
rattle.. They are now known. When
shown the following dispatch Mr. Mal
lory said .it was substantially all the
facts in the case : "It is a fact that we
have suspended work on account of the
apparent inability of Messrs Goss and
Schofield to pay.our claim against them
for the work we have already performed.
We have received no monev from them
since we took the contract for the rond
and we feel unable in the light of sim
ple business methods to continue the
work without a remittance from them.
Mr. Goss left, for New York some time
ago with the apparent intention of rais
ing the money with which to continue
the work. We filed a lien on the road
on the 23d inst. for $230,500, and
immediately discharged all the labor
ers in our employ on the grade, and
we have since been paying them off in
this city. All of our construction ma
terials are now on the line of the road,
and we are ready and willing to resume
work. on our contract as soon as our lien
is satisfied. I believe that Goss and
Schofield will be able to adjust matters
in a short time." Mr. Mallory expects
to return by October 5th.

Chicago, Sept. 29. Charley Kee, one

Chicago, this morning defied the edict
of the Six Companies,- and made appli

trict under the Geary act.
Why Sugar is Six Cents.
Boston, Sept. 30. The Daily Adver
tiser, showing up the workings of the
sugar trust yesterday, says that the -American
sugar refining company,
(which is the sugar trust) has been
flagrantly violating the federal anti-.
trust law in its dealings with M. P.
Longley, a Lynn grocer, who does $200,-
000 worth of business every year, and
whose business integrity and credit are
unquestioned. The sugar trust has boy
cotted Longley, so that for days at a
time he has been unabled to supply his
customers with sugar. It lias done this
because he proposes to retail sugar at
five cents a pound instead of six, the
card price, which the trust imposes on
retail dealers. United States Attorney
Allen assures the Advertiser if, upon
examination, the evidence against the
trust proves adequate, a prosecution
will follow. vHe will examine into the
case at once. . .
- Another Whaleback.
Duluth, Sept. 30. The new . whale
back steamer James - Colgate was
launched at West Superior on Saturday.'
She is a duplicate of the Wilson and
Mather and is 300 feet long, thirty
four feet wide and twenty-four foot
beam. There will be three more
launches at West Superior this season,
including tbe whaleback passenger boat
for the Chicago fair. .
Uncle Sam Says So.
Washington, Sept. 29. To settle a

thorities at Detroit, the surgeon-general
will have additional ' inspectors ap
pointed to enforce the quarantine there
between the United States and Canada.
