The Columbia riyer, like Emil Schan-,

The steam combined harvester which

The problem of the sand driftiTthls
country has at last been solved, by the
discovery by a tramp, that boards set up
a few inches from the ground keeps the
sand moving off till it just quits from
sheer exhaustion (lack of wind) and is
left where it will do nobody harm. The

this discovery ia now an important em

A tourist, so Conductor Fowler says,
may be a great scientist, a profound
philosopher or a mighty statesman with
the logical brain of a Webster, and yet
no railroad conductor can make him
understand why a ticket bought for a
certain train oh a certain railroad is not
good for some other train oh any other
railroad. He. may get out his purse and
pay his fare, but he does it with the
feeling that he is being swindled.-

It was the intention of the Oregon
Press Association to pass a set of resolu
tions Wednesday, congratulating Maj.
Magone on his successful trip to Chi
cago, but in the confusion incident to
the delay at Celilo, the matter was over
looked. The Oregon Press regard Maj
Magone very highly.
Now that the Oregon editors have
seen for themselves what ought to be
done and what can be done by the state
in the way of opening the Columbia
river to an uninterrupted commerce, we
hope to see them make a manifestation
of the power of the press by uniting
their voice" in a demand for an appropri
ation for a portage road.
Mr. Benton Mays, eldest son ' of Hon.
Robert Mays, is in the city from his
Wallowa home. From Mr. Mays we
learn that prosperity has spread to that
part of the Inland Empire, but it is not
a grain country on account of frost. The
winter snows protect the grass, and
stock-raisers find it profitable to feed 24
or three months every winter. It is a
fine stock country.
Mr. Jacobsen has encouraging reports
from the Silgol mining region of Mount
Adams. A Goldendale Dispatch says :
"There is much excitement here over
John J. Golden's recent rich find of sil

Three pack-trains started out last Mon
day. Those who have returned report
it very rich. Charley Slade, the' stage
man has arranged to take passengers
from Grant's through to the mines."

had a more enjoyable time at any of
their annual excursions than at the one
recently held at The Dalles. The people
of that beautiful little mountain city
were unstinted in their hospitality and
gave the visiting editors a welcome that
could not have been exceeded in cordial
ity. Their reception to the editors was
the finesse in the art of entertaining.
The weather was eharminc and enrv.
The visit of the Oregon editors to The
Dalles was productive of good in at least
one respect. It gave them an enlarged
view of the importance of the' Columbia
river to the commerce of the Northwest.
They were impressed with the necessity
for an open river, and they learned from
actual observation that the surest re
liance for opening the river 'was by
means of state appropriations, hence
they adopted a resolution memorializing
the next legislature to make immediate
provisions for building a state road to
The editors looked upon the unfin
ished work at the cascade locks, and
saw there a monument of extravagance
and useless waste of time. There has
been' time and money enough expended
there under federal supervision to have
built a dozen locks. While the work
at the cascades has been progressing,
the Suez canal has been completed, and
the "Soo" canal-has been built. As a
result of the latter improvement, wheat
is now being shipped from Duluth to
Liverpool for less than it costs to ship it
from The Dalles to Portland.

To the hearts that were saddened at parting.

Duel Over a Senorita.
Sax . Antoxia, Tex.,-Oct. 7. Duels
among hot-blooded Mexicans are becom
ing of .frequent occurrence in this sec
tion of Texas, the latest affair of honor
taking place last evening in the Chario
community, Godlio county. Pierro El
dero and Catarino Montez, two cotton
pickers, attended a dance Wednesday
night, given at the house of Manuel
Flores, who has a pretty daughter named
Franceses. The two dusky cotton-pickers
became enamored of the charms of
the fair senorita, and the dances of the
fandango jwere evenly shared by her
with her two ardent admirers. Eldero
and Montez met yesterdaj' morning in
the cotton-fields and began discussing
the belle pt the night previous, when
Montez asserted with a taunting air that
he had made a successful conquest of the
heart of the pretty Francesca. Eldero
challenged the statement, and they soon
became involved in a quarrel which
resulted in their making an agreement
to meet on tne field of honor at sun
down with 38-caliber pistols at 20 paces.
They met at the stated time. Each man
was accompanied by two seconds. El
dero was killed at the first shot. Montez
escaped unwounded, and immediately
fled to avoid arrest. He is being pur
sued bv officers. '

It must be admitted that the day is
coming when The Dalles "will be more
famous for ita fruit than any one locality
now known. Then it wiirbe' important
to know who the men - were that
pioneered thia wonderful , business In
order that they may . be f known . The
Chronicle has collected data' byvhich
we are enabled to present'" the 'following
list of those engaged more or less ex
tensively in the cultivation of fruits and
vines within a radius of five miles of
The Dalles this year, with the exception
of two names. All get their mail at The
Dalles postoffice, however :

There was Tom, the Son of the Piper,
Jack Sprat, and Merry King Cole,
And the Three Wise Men of Gotham,
Who went to sea in a bowl ;
The woman who rode on a broomstick,
And swept the cobwebbed sky.
And the boy who Bat in the corner,
Eating his Christmas pie." .
These were some of the old favorites,
but they have been supplanted by the
"Pansy" and "Chatterbox" stories,
"Little Lord Fauntleroy," and "Five
Little Peppers." The old fashioned
pills and physics have been superseded,
and wisely, too, by Pierce's Purgative
Pellets, a mild, harmless and effective
cathartic. They are pleasant to take
so gentle in their action that the most
delicate child can take them, yet so ef
fective that they will cure the most ob
stin ate cases of constipation, stomach,
liver and bowel troubles. Thev should
be in every nursery. As a gentle laxa
tive, only one for a dose.
A Rival Movement.
West Coast Trade. The "green-goods"
man has sent a big batch of his circulars
to merchants and others throughout the
state again, and his proposition to in
crease the currency, giving a more equal
distribution of wealth, ia looked upon as
a rival movement in solving a vexed
question without third party aid.
