The Dalles Portage BUI.
Senator Raley's bill to' appropriate
$460,000 for .a portage railway between
The Dalles and Celilo is substantially
the eame measure as the one he intro
duced two years ago, which passed the
senate and was defeated in the house by
a narrow margin. It provides for the
money to-be expended by the governor,
secretary of state and state treasurer, as
in the case of the portage road at the
cascades of the Columbia, and this year
has the per centage of favor over 1890,
in the showing of benefits accruing to
the people of the Inland Empire from
the construction of the cascade portage
railway. It is safe to say that if justice
is meted .to this division of the state, the
Raley bill will become a law. We shall
follow the subject with statistics.
If any evidence were lacking to con
vince Mr. Blanchard and others of the
house committee on. commerce in con
gress, that the people of the Inland Em
pire do not propose to be any longer
olitically hoodooed respecting the dalles
rtage railway and an open Columbia
iver, let him or them observe the action
of Oregon assemblymen on this subject
for the next thirty-five days.
The Jnte Factory.
Representative Keady has introduced
r. bill providing for the erection of a
ute factory at a cost of $180,000 for the
(employment of convict labor. It is to
have a 100-loom plant, of the same capa
city as the one at San Quentin. The
governor, secretary of state and state
treasurer are constituted 'a board of
directors. The chief product is to be
grain sacks and other jute fabrics ; also
brick. The products are to be so.ld di
rect to consumers in Buch Quantities as
the board of prison directors may direct.
This is one of The Chbonicle bills, and
while we feel that it is to be one of the
best measures to come before the assem
bly, we shall be satisfied with fifty
looms to start with, and a proper de
crease of the appropriation as set forth
m Mr. Keady's bill. - The nlan as rro-
posed by The Cheoniclb is heartily
endorsed by the farming community.
We may say almost unnnimouely ; and
we would prefer moderation in the de
mands upon the treasury to a loss of the
measure in its entirety. -
Some people imagine that it will re
quire the help of all the convicts in Sa
lem to run the jute sack factory. This
i disputed by the Capital ' Journal,
which announces that "there are -convicts
enough to run. a jute 'mill and a
stove fnctorv too."

A PLEA FOR TKOTJT.
It Is Necessary for Us to Read the Fish
Commission the Riot Act About
Black Bass. . ,
It is proposed some' time eoon to send
out another carload of Dass from eastern
waters by the United States fish com
mission to stock the lakes and streams
of Oregon and Washington. Our moun
tain trout has been the divinity of ani
glers in " Oregon streams for time im
memorial, and there is a wholesome ob
jection raised to the proposal of the
United States fish commission in its ef
forts of supplanting them with bass
from anywhere. Judges,' , presidents,
senators and plebeians, who have gone
many miles to toss the gamy speckled
trout a fly will ask the pressof thi
coast to enter a protest against this pro!
posed desecration, which is a worse on
than the infliction visited upon our
preserves" by the introduction of carp
and bull-pouts. Our mountain trout is
the acknowledged king of all fresh water
fishes. No other will take tbe fly like
him or compare in gaminess; nor is
there any so toothsome. The black
bass is a very good fish compared with
the bull-pout and sunfisb, but he is hot
in the same category with the trout. As
food the black bass brings eighteen
cents a pound in the New York market
today, where the trout sells for a dollar
a pound. There is a corresponding
difference in their game qualities.
The bas9 is not the superior of our
trout, . in eize even. . Any one
who has tver caught either the
large bass, or the small-mouthed bass,
in eastern waters, where tbe fishing is
considered good, will tell you, if they
ever had the experience, that they,
never bad so much sport in a whole
day, as they found in Tront lake, or any
one of the hundred trout streams in the
vicinity of The Dalles in half an hour,
This is not the climate, either, for bass,
under the most favorable circumstances ;
and he would never flourish here. He
is no comparison to the trout in any
sense, and our Rod and Gun' clubs
should teach the fish commission that
their " labors in this bebnlf would never
bo appreciated. ' Our fish is a " true
trout, though differing slightly from the
eastern brook trout, and being a purely
Pacific coast product, it should be our
pride and ambition to keep him at his
best. Then we may treat out eastern
visitors to sport such as they can only
read about at home. - Nothing less than
the speckled beauties we have is good
enough for the waters of our magnificent
regions. Let us put a stop to the fish
ing out of season, slaughtering . trout
with eiant powder and set-lines, and
the Inland Empire will long remain a
spot tor anglers to aream ot.
