THE PILOT SERVICE .
Mr. E. C. Holden of Astoria, under
date of the 21st, shows that the greatest
losses to shipping at, the mouth of the
Columbia, does not couie so much from
the pilotage system as from the scrawny
service of the U. P. R. Co.'s worthless
tugboats. It is a very grave error to
suppose that the saving of $200 or $300
on towage and pilotage begin to compen
sate a vessel ready for sea for five, ten or
-fifteen days' detention on account of in
adequate bar service? Every day's de
tention costs that ship from $160 to $200
at a moderate estimate. .- The "same
reasoning applies to vessels bound in
but compelled to stand off and on some
times for days. To show the estimate
shipmasters have of the outlay"of a few
hundred dollars if they can have but
quick dispatch, it is stated that last
winter when Spreekel's tug Relief towed
the ship Kinkora from San Francisco to
Astoria in order to save her charter,
there were four or five vessels loaded
and anchored off Sand island waiting for
the company's tug, which it is presumed
considered the bar too rough for 6hips to
eross ont, thongh all charges for pilotage
and towage had been paid to the com
pany. The masters of the Afghanistan
and Sheve Roe each engaged and gladly
paid the Relief $350 to tow them out to
sea, and after letting go of these, the
Relief took hold of the Earl of Dnnraven
and the Knight of the Garter, inward
bound, on the same terms, and anchored
them off Sand island. Masters and own
ers of vessels know that loss of time is
loss of money. It is not probable that
the more serious loss of life and property,
as in the case of the Strathblane and
Ferndale, wrecked north of the Colum
bia river, would have been prevented
under a towage and pilotage system
open to competition such as will result
if the Campbell pilot bill shall pass?
Doubtless the recent rough and costly
experiences of the Moel Tryvan and Sea
fortb, when under detention off the
mouth of the river, might have been
avoided had there been better tug ser
vice on tbo bar and two pilot boats out,
aa there ought to be, instead of one. The
present combination is a cause for general
complaint, and the pilots themselves
object to it. It is contrary to all cus
tom, and such a system does not exist
in any other seaport in the world. To
insure the good service the commerce of
the Columbia river requires it is abso
lutely necessary that the pilotage and
towage shall be segregated. With re
gard to their pay: The pilots receive
$125 a month, or $1500 a year (not $2500,
as intimated in the Oregonian). To any
-ne not thoroughly acquainted with the
hardships, privations, dangers and risks
of life to which they are exposed, $1,500
a year might appear to be a fair coin pen
aation ; hut in view of all. the facts it is
a very insignificant snm for the faithful
performance of hazardous duties.

On of the
Many Who Did - Not Blgu
Tccker, Jan. 24. Special. I am
a man who don't know much, but I do
know this much, that the fever is a bad
thing to have. I had ague fever five
years. When I came down from the
Baldwin district to Hood River I found
that some of its people had the county
fever bad. People this way want an
open river, and it would be better for
the people of Hood River to talk "open
river" too. But no; and it has been
said they don't care. They don't seem
to think that nn open river will help
Hood River. They don't think that the
poor pay high freight on whatever
comes on wheels to that town. But if
they do think, they do not care. They
want the now county and thus pile more
load on the poor. If. there are men like
myself, and I think there are, not able
to buy a sack of. flour jciFt. now to save
their lives, to pile on me and my fellow-
poor additional burdens is a shame. Of
course it is right enough for the few in
town, and to those who have land for
I was told by one on . wheels, who
runs around with a petition, that Wasco

thing in size and here is this in black
and white 60x50. Who knows the most,
I or the man who is so sick after office?
Time will tell on him when he tries to

Mating Glad the Waste (Waist) Places.
44 That's -what I call making glad the
waist places," said Smithson, as he put
his arm around a lady's waist? But
Lilly won't" care much for this show
of affection if Smithson doesn't get
rid of that disagreeable catarrh of his.
Won't somebody tell him that Dr. Sage's
Catarrh Remedy will cure him.
By its ' mild, soothing, antiseptic,
cleansing and healing properties, Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy cures the- worst
cases of Chronic Catarrh in the Head,'
asthousa;. U can testify. - "Cold in the
Head "is cured with a few applications.
.Catarrhal Headache is relieved and
cured as if by magic. '
In perfect faith, the makers of Dr.
Saga's Catarrh Remedy the World's
Dispensary Alealcal Association, ol Buf
falo, N. x., offer to pay $500 to any one
suffering from Chronic Catarrh in the
Head whom they cannot cure. '
How, if the conditions were reversed

positive cure you miqht hesitate. Here
