A committee of ladies of The Dalles
have had seventy-six sacks of . flour
turned oyer to them from the fire relief
committee of 1891. to be distributed
wherever they may decide, to relieve
any cases of want found in the city.
"The poor ye always have," and in The
Dalles it is a matter of congratulation
that our devoted and charitably inclined
ladies have found' means to render ass
istance in several instances where aid
was needed. - -
Mr. Fred Drews and others, who haw
"-.cently made a valuable discovery of
nerals within thirty ' miles of The
iles, have cause to be happy over the
suits of assays made by a Denver as-
Jyer. Five specimens of the rock were
nt to Denver. ' On of those showed
15 to the ton silver, and $16 gold, total
f $131 to the ton. Another shows a value
of $300 to the ton. We congratulate the
lucky prospectors, and hope that all
rVill be another big thine for The Dalles.
, Senator. Fulton., is generally . about
right on inoet matters of public import
tauce, but his ideas ot reform iu the
' manner proposed yesterday Vto obviate
the necessity for absolutely repealing"
the deduction for indebtedness clause, in
ithe Oregon tax laws is "too thin" to fit
the miter where public opinion may. be
'expected, to join 'the propoeitioD. Ac
cording to the Oregon Lan'e report Mr.
Fulton's idea seems tote just what the
people who do pay taxes now complain
.'about, and on the "other hand, would
just suit that clai-s of citizens who do
X not now pay taxes; simply avoiding
"payments by their own "certificates'of
Vindebtedness. We would not do Senator
A Fulton an injustice, yet must say that in
f-, his proposition we can see no relief from
the evils complained of. The only rem
edy to honest taxpaying citizens lays in
. tne proposition to wholly wipe the in
debtedness clause from the statutes.

and laboring men find little to do.
The predictions ol "U. lew dissatisfied
taxpayers, that the work the city coun
cil had done ou the streets would prove
a curse to the town, have not yet come
true. A man may walk for blocks along
in the middle of Main street and never
tep in the mud.
The O. A. C. is now iu a more flonr-
,shing condition than it ever was. There
re sixty-five more pupils now enrolled
ban there ever was at one time before.
Probably some of your readers are
laboring under the impression . that the
citizens of our fair state have to bear all
the expenses of this great institution.
If so, I want to tell them that the state
of Oregon bears only a small part of the
expenses of the college. Uncle Sam
gave Oregon 90,000 acres of land .for the
purpose of starting and maintaining an
agricultural college. 50,000 acres of this
land has been sold, and the money,
$133,000, has been loaned at interest.
For the same purpose the United States
government appropriates $18,000 this
year, which will be inereaeed $1,000
each year uutil it reaches $25,000 per
year. The government appropriates
$15,000 per year for the purpose
of : maintaining an Agricultural Ex
periment station. But as the money
appropriated by Uncle Sam cannot be
used in the construction of buildings,
the state has to look after them. Tha
citizens about Corvallis went down in
their pockets, built and gave to the state
a fine three story brick college building.
The state has since erected two" dormi
tory s, boarding halls, a two story tne
hanical building, of 'brick and has com
menced a. station building. The present
legislature is . asked to finish the lust
named buildingand thus give the chemist
a chance to learn that Eastern Oregon soil
is capable of producing something more
than "bunchgrass and sagebrush." Also
to furnish means for starting a good
dairy, building a baru, furnishing-much
needed machinery for Mechanical hall ;
to put in a plant for more properly heat
ing and ventilating the college building;
to improve things abont the greenhouse ;
and furnish apparatus for teaching elec
tric engineering. . ... .
There are now 273 happy boys and

TUB DALLES MARKETS.
Thfbsday, Jan. 20. Trade during the
past week has been light aud a general
depression prevails in business circles.
In conversation with one of our leading
grocery dealers, we learn that there has
been a steady falling off of trade all
winter and the question was asked why
it was so, and the reply was that there
was a tiht market and no money iu
circulation; also there was u disposition
not to extend credits. . However , this
may be, a general complaint 1m made of
dull times and a limited tfjde in all
orancjies. . former - prices -are main-

prices. Eggs are in better supply and

market, bnt there baa been no change

beets, parsnips and carrots, are growing
scarce, owing to the frosty weather, and
the market is stiffening in accordance
with non-arrival of that class. Cellery,
jcauliflower and cabbage are in fair sup

have advanced somewhat, they are
quoted at $1.25 to $1.35 per sack of, 100

coast offers no encouragement to holders

quotations are $1.20 to $1.22tJ per cental

for Eastern Oregon.. Our own market
is steady in wheat, oats and barley

Senator Dolph's own words should
settle the matter as to the full and final
terms of the extension of time which
settlers have to complete entries on for
feited railway lands. .In answer to Mr.
Sherman, who asked the - question:
'When does the time expire?". Mr.
Dolph had the resolution read again,
then said :
'The amendment extends the time for
a portion of the settlers on the land from
September next until the first of Janu
ary, and for others from February next
to tne first ot January, in either case a
part of the year. The object is to give
the settlers the advantage of another
crop, to save their . land."
Senator White offered an amendment
to limit the action of the . bill to the
state of Oregon. To this Mr. Dolph
consented, and it passed. The same
identical measure passed the house, two
