Speaking of patent medicines, the
Judge eays : "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 nm acquainted with Dr. Vander
pool (having been treated by him for
cancer), and have used hia 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
inBrights 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 Ijeats anything I
ever tried. .7. B. Nelson,

Convention of Straight Democrats.
Topeka, Kan., Oct. 7. The state con
vention of straight democrats meets in
this city today. It is expected' that 500
delegates will be in attendance. It is
not the intention to nominate a state
ticket, but to denounce the action of the
democratic state convention of July in
nominating the state ticket of the peo
ple's party and practically abandoning
the democratic state organization.
Resolutions will be adopted declaring
for the national platform and ticket.
The democratic state central committee
met here yesterday. Tbe first district
congressional committee appeared be
fore it and urged that the state commit
tee demand that the people's party with
draw the name of Fred J. Close, the
people's party candidate lor congress, so
that Ed. Carroll, the democratic nomi
nee, may have a clear field against the
republican candidate. Delegates from
the first district to the state convention
were induced to vote for the indorse
ment of the people's party state ticket
with ' the understanding that Close
would' be withdrawn. The straight
democrats claim that fusion in Kansas
has been nullified by the action of the
people's party' and that the state peo
ple's party ticket will certainly be de
feated, as the democrats will vote the
Tbe Original Documents.
Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 7. The firm
of Gawman & Erb, of this city, is con
structing a chest as a receptable for the
original Declaration of Independence,
the draft of the same made by Thomas
Jefferson, the constitution of the United
States and other valuable, historical and
legal documents which are to be exhibit
ed at the world's fair. The chest in ap
pearance is like a safe built in the form
of a sideboard. The height is 10 feet, it
is three feet six inches broad and about
as deep, and is made of highly wrought
gray steel. The trimmings, which are
put on in abundance, are of gold leaf.
A shelf lined with velvet is placed be
low the upper drawers. The latter are
of oak. ' When the gold combination
lock is turned to the number and the
steel doors fly open, a set of drawers,
working on rollers and provided with
birkhead brackets, appear. The chest
is lined with tin. It will be sent to
Washington and there supplied with
plate glass, so that the curious may
catch a glimpse of the documents. A
special will be provided and under a
guard composed of several army officers
it will be taken to the fair.
Let Us Spray."
Grant's Pass Courier. Fruit-growers
of Southern Oregon" must make up their
minds to use London purple and Paris
green if they wish to save their fruit
from insect pests. The notion that our
climate does not agree with the codlin
moth, the woolly aphis or any other
insect, is a wrong one. . Anything that
flourishes in any part of the' world will
thrive here, except, perhaps, hop lice,
which have hitherto found our summers
too dry for their constitutions. Every
year the ravages of the codlin moth ap
pear more widely distributed, and the
spray-pump" is the only antidote. Let
as spray. ; .
Last Installment of tbe Contributions

important facts. Some of the members

We are delighted with our reception
by the citizens of The Dalles, and are
enjoying ourselves. The most of us are
surprised at the importance of the city
as a trade center, as we find here very
large stocks of goods, many of which
would do credit to much larger cities
than The Dalles. Chas. Nickell.

"We are for the protection that pro
tects and the reciprocity that recipro
cates," said Chairman Wilson at Chi
cago, and so should the Inland Empire
say to the webfoot division of Oregon
"That 11th hour exhibit," I repeat,
"takes my eye." It is indeed very good.
If that is the "skim-milk," as I have
heard it called in The Dalles, what was
the cream? The answer conies from
Portland, stating that 11 out of 13 ex
hibits of Wasco county fruit-growers re
ceived first premiums at the Industrial
Exposition. Now, when I consider the
6,000,000-pouud wool clip, the possible
wheat shipment this year aggregating
1,250,000 bushels, the number of horses,
cattle and sheep annually grown in the
county, the good-looking and honored
mayor who gave us the freedom of the
city, the handsome and cultivated
women, assisted by the dutiful, beautiful
and charming girls, who met us at the
Cascade Locks last Tuesday and served
us with such an elegant lunch I say:
When I consider all these, together with
the most cordial reception of the Oregon
pencil-pushers by the press of The Dalles
and the citizens thereof generally, then
it may be said that, as a fraternity, we
need a new set of adjectives to give ade
quate expression to our delight at being
here and of our appreciation of the ex
cellent treatment we have received.

jL'ontraci for a Ship Canal.
New York, Oct. 7. A $2,000,000 con
tract has just been let in this city for
dredging the . jetties at the proposed
deep-water harbor of Ropez Pass, Tex.
The work consists of a ship channel 30'
feet deep, extending from the Gulf of
Mexico to Corpus Christi bay, across
Mustang Island. A channel 3,200 feet
in length has been dredged across Mus
tang Island to within 800 feet of the
gulf beach. Four miles of dockage in
30 feet of water will be provided in the,
new harbor, which is designed as an
outlet for the grain exportation of tbe
West and Northwestl
Dynamite in Homestead.
" Homestead, Pa., Oct. 7. A dastardly
attempt was made to murder about 40
non-union men in their beds. A dyna
mite bomb was thrown through the
window of a boarding-house where many
non-union men lodge, about 2 o'clock
this morning. It exploded with great
force, seriously damaging the building;
but, as the force was downward, none of
the inmates, who were sleeping on the
upper floor, suffered anything more
Berious than a bad scare.
Coming to Astoria.
Washington, Oct. 7. The new light
house tender Columbine, destined for
service on the North Pacific "coast, will
sail from New York for that station
next week, under the command of Lieutenant-Commander
West, of the United
States navy. She will stop en route at
Rio de Janeiro, Montevedio, Valparaiso
and San Francisco, and is expected to
reach Astoria in about 70 days.

Intense Excitement in Tonawanda
Health Authorities Greatly Dis
San Francisco, Oct. 7. A special re
porter of the Examiner has just returned,
from the King's river canyon country.
The paper will print todav an interview
between this reporter and Evans and
Sontag, which discredits the recent
reports of their having started for
the coast and elsewhere. It says in sub
stance : They are both well, "are in an
inacceesable place, and have ample pro
visions. The only wound Evans received
in his late fight at Young's cabin was a -graze
flash wound over ; the eyebrow
from McGinnis' pistol. Sontag was shot
through the fleshy part of the arm, but
the wound is now healed. They deny that
they robbed the train , say they can prove
their innocence by an alibi, and claim
that all the shooting they have
done has been in self-defense.
Two Supposed Cases of Cholera.
Tonawanda, N. Y., Oct. 7. Two new
cases of cholera are reported in" the
house at Ironton, where the Kalmas,
father and son, died, and the excitement
here is intense. In a little four-room
house there live nine people who came
to this country three months ago, and
were employed at the iron works' here.

was attacked, and his son died of- the
same disease after an ' illness even
shorter. This morning it is reported
Kalmas' wife and an Austrian named
Faliach are down with the disease, but
in a milder form. The health author
ities are greatly, disturbed and have ,
asked for instructions from the state
board of health. The house is quaran
tined, and.the bedding and furniture in
the rooms occupied ' by .. the Kalmas
burned. A lot of mail from Enrope was
found in the house, and it was also de- '
stroyed. D. Jayne said today that the
disease had every appearance of genuine
cholera, but thinks it may be sporadic
cholera. The people in the house, he
said, had been eating tainted meats and

generally of an uncleanly character.
The Cost of Gowns.
Chicago News. It is reported that a
dispute has arisen as to the price of the
most costly dresses. A Connecticut lady ,
it seems, has acquired a certain celebrity
at a cost of $1,800. which she invested in
a single crown. A Chicago authority re
plies with pride that a bride of this city
had a wedding gown which cost $4,7CD
rather expensive when it is considered
11 j Ti" . r i
mat weauing gowns are not oi mucn

mentions a ball gown that cost $1,000,
and still other gowns cheap ones x.
costing $500 or $6C0. By using system
and energy no doubt all these figures

rumor of a society woman who wore so
much jewelry that two detectives were ,
secured to dance in every quadrille with
her. -Had shebeen consumed in a fire -while
wearing her ball dress it would -"
have paid better to receive insurance
not for herself but for her apparel. ..If
New York it is said to be customary for
ladies to retire from the festal scene at
regularly recurrent intervals and counts
up with their maids, who keep an in-
I ventory and price list. If over $303
worth is missing they go home, regard
ing the assemblage as unsafe. These
little facts are mentioned to encourage
those who have hitherto been unable to
get above the $1,000 mark. It is really
not difficult if plenty of money is handy.
