It somehow leaked out during the day
that part of the party are headed for the
3rd house now in session at Salem. Mr.
Biggs was in great haste to get there 1
and take a hand in affairs, notably to see
that the county divisionists do not chop
off more than they can properly handle.
The CrtBONici.K has eaid, with a chal
lenge to the enemies of an open river to
fairly dispute it. that the little $55,000
railway at Cascade Locks, built by the
state of Oregon, has "saved for the pro
ducers of Wasco and Klickitat counties
alone (below the dalles of the Colum
bia) not a cent less ' than $175,000 since
it was built. Enough in reality to have
paid for the road three times over. If
the state will build the dalles portage,
it will pay for itself in two years, by re
ducing .freights and increasing the
wealth of the producer and stockmen.
The general government will not build a
ship railway. That is' a foregone con
clusion, and the state must relieve the
armers of extortion on freights by giv-
ng them an open river.". , Instead
of attempting to disprove such state
ments, the enemies . of an open
river "sneak ..around '' the; r country"
and try' to secure" signatures of the
people to a deceptive snare, a remonstr
ance to the proposition for a state appro
priation for Buch purpose. ' With this re
monstrance numerously signed they in
tend to kill the project forever. Once
dead it may never again be revived. Are
the people informed as to these merce
nary motives?.. Then meet the remons
trance with a solid petition: ' There is no
time to be lost.

W. C. ALLAWAY,
B. F. LAUGH LIN,
FCNKKAL OF WJI. S LADD.
Universally Loved, Greatly Kespeeted.
According to the wish oi Mr. Wm. S.
Ladd, that when he ' died his funeral
should occur in the morning, arrange
ments were made for his burial at 10 :30
today, from the First - Presbyterian
church in Portland, of which he was an
honored member. It is safe to say that
it was the largest funeral that has ever
taken place in Portland.. - No man has
ever died in Oregon who was so univers
ally beloved, none more sadly mourned.
The Chronicle gave a short sketch of
his life on the evening of his death.
'he exchanges reaching the office since
hen from wit hin the range of possibility
to secure the news, all contain sorrowful
evidences of. the loss which the com
munity has sustained by his. death. It
appears that Mr. Ladd spent many of
the gladsome holiday hours of the past
festal Beason on his bed of sickness.
The first of last week, however, the. Wel
come says, although still enfebled, he
attended a meeting of the water com
mission, of which he is an interested
member. Before tbe close of the session
Mr. Ladd made a brief speech, of a some
what pathetic character, to his fellow
members of tbe board. Among other
things, he eaid that . chief of the fond
ambitions of his life is a bountiful gup
ply of purer and cheaper water for the
city of Portland. The water at present
supplied the Portland people is detaste
ful and deleterious to the public health,
and he would hail the day of the com
pletion of the Bull Run system and be
glad of the hour when water should be
free. - Rates at present are too high,
and the added cost of sickness in conse
quence of tbe water's impurity, is a
grievous burden, especially upon the
poor. In a tone of earnestness he added
than he had long desired to witness the
erection, at Riverview cemetery, of a
chapel worthy of that beautiful spot.
Such an edifice he declared a necessity
of our civilization.
He also hoped for an unobstructed river
to the sea, a channel so deep that the
greatest ships afloat may safely navigate
it.' The gentleman spoke- with an an
UBual depth of feeling, closing 'with the
words that time was leaving its touch
upon him and that be' might not live to
witness tbe consumation of his' hopes.
When he had concluded his -short .ad
dress his fellow members of the board
grasped his hand and in words of honest
candor expressed the hope that the
speaker might live to view the comple
tion of these improvements and many
others time will demand. It was plain
that his auditors were . affected by his
address. ' , ,
Many incidents ' are related showing
deserved tributes to an honest citizen.
A few months since, says one of these,
an institute for the cure of the liquor
habit and kindred afflictions was estab
lished in ' Portland. It. had not been
long in existence when a distant ac
quaintance, one with whom he had con
versed less than a dozen times; took the
treatment and was pronounced cured
A short tiiu'e afterward, Mr. Ladd sent a
note to the gentleman. - It said he
wished a private interview with the
man. In that conversation he desired
an honest opinion - as to the merits of
the cure, and being .assured of its effi
cacy he said : "I have been asked to
become treasurer of the concern,: and
after what you have said I will consent
that my name be used. I pity those
poor fellows who have fallen from drink,
and I am willing to lend my influence in
any honorable direction that will tend

friend (referring to a gentleman well
known in 'Portland) has, I' am told,
been treated at the institute, and I pray
that his cure may be thorough and per
manent." Mr. Ladd talked for fully
five minutes of the curse of rum, and
the great blessings that would accrue to
humanity if a cure for the debasing
affliction had really been discovered. '
To a recent biographer, alluding to his
wealth, Mr. Ladd said that if all the
property he owned in his own right and
had transferred to his eldest son could be
converted into cash at its actual value,
the amount would probably foot up
to $18,000,000. He added, however,
that tbe statement was not for publica
tion. Mr. Ladd was not an autocrat. With
all his wealth, he was a plain, every-day
citizen. In the home of many a poor
man in Oregon his death will be sin
cerely mourned. Several friends from
The Dalles were in attendance at the
funeral among them Messrs. D. M-, J.
W. and Smith French, relatives of Mr.
Ladd and, alas I very many from different
portions of the coast, will mourn tbe fact
that they may never , eee his pleasant
face any more. ; .
