The Ontckest Way to Care a Cold.
Do ou wish to know the quickest way
to cure a cold? We - will' tell you. : To
cure a cold quickly, it must be treated
before the cold has become settled in tbe
system. The first symptoms of a cold
is a dry, loud cough and sneezing. Tiie
cough is Boon followed by watery ex
pectoration and the sneezing by a pro
fuse watery discharge from tbe nose, in
severe cases there is a thin white coating
on the tongue. - What to do? It is only
necessary to take Chamberlain s Cough
Remedy in double does- every bour.
That will greatly lessen the 'severity of
the cola ana in many cases will enectu
ally counteract it, and cure what would
have been a severe cold within one or
two days time. Try it and be convinced

There Are, Also Many Investments
Sponge Fishers off the Coast of
Florida Other Mews.
New Oblbans, Feb. 6. Special.
"The country needs to be reminded that
there is cood fishing in tbe gulf of
Mexico for either sport or profit, though
the fisheries there do not cost either the
government or the bordering states a
dollar of money or a moment of anxiety.
Fishing there is a great industry, in
which Italians, Sicillians, Austrians,
Greeks, Spaniards, Malays, and ; some
West India negroes engage. The oys
ter interests are enormous and compara
tively undeveloped. It is estimated
that 3,000,000 bushels of oysters were
fished in the neighborhood of New Or
leans in 1892, most of which were taken
for local consumption:
In the same year there were 404 ves
sels of nearly 5,000 net tonnage and em
ploying 12,000 men in the gulf' fisheries.
Of the most important fishes taken in
that year- were snappers to the amount
of 5,000,000 pounds; Spanish mackerel,
700,000 pounds'; -A pampano, 300,000
pounds ; red-fish, 2,100,000 " pounds.
There are also sponge fisheries on the
Florida coast which furnished products
to the value of $439,000, while shrimp,
crabs, turtles and terrapin are found in
great quantities. Louisiana and Florida
take the lead in these fisheries, which
are so thoroughly under American pro
tection that they are not .likely to in
volve international disputes.
Legislation for Alaska!
The people of Alaska are calling aloud
for home rule and are setting earnestly
to work to secure it. According to ad
vices received from Juneau the initia
tive in this movement was taken on
January 25th, when the citizens of Al
aska met and organized a home rule
league for the purpose of advancement
and fostering the interests of the terri
tory. The people generally invited to
join, the only qualification being United
States citizenship. Branch leagues are
to be organized at' Sitka," Wrangel,
Kodiac, Unga and Douglas Island. The
object of the league is. to unite tbe peo
ple of the. territory, so they may work as
a unit for the advancement of the conn
try. A convention will be called to
meet in Juneau some time this month to
discuss the needs of the territory and to
eiecc a delegate who will carry to con
gress a petition asking for the following
legislation for Alaska : First a delegate
in congress; second home rule; third a
modification of the present prohibitory
liquor law so as to admit of licensing
under certain restrictions ; fourth a law
Dy wnicn puDiic lanas may oe taken up
by actual settlers. This is a brief out
line of the legislation that is desired.
Colonel Charles H. Tsham of Sitka is
leading the movement and is meeting
with cordial support from all who have
interests in the territory. .
As Good as Gold. .
Washington, Feb. - 6. Special.
There is shortly to be another issue of
1,400,000 of the new Columbian half
dollars, making irr all 2,800,000 which
will have been issued. The demand for
these coins is very large. The , greater
number are probably held as souvenirs,
and are thus kept out of circulation.
Inquiries as to their being legal tender
for the face value have been received at
the treasury, a popular misconception
seemingly prevailing that they are in
tended only as souvenirs.

Seathern Iron Men Don't Know Row to
- Let "Well Enough Alone. '
- Chattanooga, Feb. 6. Special. In
.1882 the south produced 350,439 tons of
iron. "Under republican) protection In
ten years it reached to 1,834,586 and the
current year will go over" 2,000,000 tons.
Thiajfl advance of oyer -400 per cent.
Bat go right along ; smash the. robber's
tariff, and ten year - hence take an ac
count of Stock: and see . whether it is 400
per cent better. The. iron ' men if the
south don't seem to know-enough to let
welt enough alone. Had it not been for
protection, Chattanooga and Birming
ham would have; been straggling Til
lages, with men- sitting on dry goods
boxes whittling on pine sticks, or fig
uring what they -would get for rosin
next year. - - Protection made them just
as free as free trade Will unmake them.
. The signs of the times are of a conser
vative character. . Manufacturers will
keep close to the market demand, and
brokers will restrict loans to business
necessities, and avoid all speculative
tendencies. In ' railroad construction
only such work as is considered abso
lutely necessary will be done. There ia
but one meaning in all this, and that is
a. curtailment of the employment of
labor, and the cheaper and more com
mon grades will be the first to feel the
effects, while skilled workmen must
come in for their share of the burden by
wage reductions. . An example of this is
found in the fact that the. Beaver falls
tool company has reduced the wages of
its employes. 50 per cent. "This Is . a
sweeping cut, and is due to uncertainty
as to what will be done with the product
in the event of. the adoption of a free
trade policy. "
A Good SnggesMon.
West Side. There has probably been
no legislature which excites so little in
terest as the one now in session at Salem.
It ia generally conceded' that if our
legislature could meet once in ten years.
our state would be immensely better off.
There is too much tinkering with' legis
lation, too many $5.00 worth of stamps,
penknives, " and ' pretty female clerks
voted for, and not enough law made in
the interest of the people.' Because our
people have been.' led to expect but little,
it is probable that little Will be. the re
sult of this legislature. We sincerely
hope that" our assessment law may be
amended, and our' road laws changed.
Less attention should be paid to spend
ing the public money, and more now to
collect the same .and -not rob the' poor
man as is' the case now, - even here in
Oregon. " '' -
How Ancient Builders Ballt.
The builders of Babel built well. Tra
dition relates that it was only a confu
sion of. tongues that checked their aspi
ration. There can be no doubt that the
foundations of the celebrated tower that
was designed by its architect to reach
"heaven" were of the broadest and heav-;
iest sort; let us say vast walla of the
most solid granite, bound and knit to
gether by that most excellent insoluble
cement that is one of the lost arts to
modern constructionists. Yet if latter
day engineers be not hopelessly in error
with concern to the conclusions they
have drawn as respects ancient ma
sonry from the ruins of ancient struc
tures, ancient builders counted only on
the law of gravitation, which, they knew
in an empiric way, for the safety of the
works they wrought: The projector of
the Nag-on-Wat, whose walls and roof
might have sheltered a. St. Peter's and a
St. Paul's and still have had room for a
building like the Equitable in Broadway
within its vast inclosures, would never
dream of setting his masons to begin, tbe
laying of his walls say at about fifty feet,
from the ground. Harper's Weekly.
Something That Has Been Needed.
For some time past tho publio have
been looking for an adjustable grille,
with shelf attachment, upon which to
place bric-a-brac, the whole' to be ar
ranged over windows or doorways to re
lievo this portion .of a room, which ia
usually dependent upon a curtain pole.
The great trouble haa always been that
they had to bo made to order, as win
dows and doors vary in width. Now,
however, a device is made narrow enough
to go into tho narrowest doorway. ' It is
in two sections, running upon a sliding
top bar. By drawing- these pieces apart
they can be extended to the width of
the door, and the open place left in the
center of them is furnished with a short
drapery. Philadelphia Upholsterer. -

Chairman Clarhson of the Rational
Committee Scores the President
for his Action.
Washington, Feb. 6. Special.
Amongst the many leading republicans
who have taken exceptions to the ap
pointment of Judge Jackson ot Tenn.T to
till the vacancy, of the supreme bench
made by the death of Lamar, Hon. J. S.
Clarkson, chairman of the national re
publican executive committee, is quoted
as saying: "In my judgment, the act of
President Harrison in appointing to the
supreme bench, especially at this ex
ceedingly critical juncture in national
affairs, a southern state-rights, free
trade, anti-pension democrat, and an
unrecanted believer in - the secession
theory, is a betrayal of public trust and
party faith. Indeed, it ia the most ser
ious blunder in party politics which
President Harrison has committed. No
president since the foundation of the re
public has appointed a man from the
opposition party to the suprejue bench.
It is specially a betrayal of party inter
est at the present time, when-, the dem-
vvi va vi - owa v mtau voiivoaivii vs.
every branch of the government except
the judiciary." 1 " -' ' - .
- It was a surpriee both to republicans
and democrats. As has beer said, it
may be an act of graceful -courtesy on
thespart of Mr; Harrison to his succes
sor, but it is a -dangerous and disap
pointing compromise-' with principle.
If there ia anything more in party than
mere office-getting,' it ia the duty of . s
president to insure the enforcement of
the principles of the government he pro
fesses" in his appointments to office. It
is a common sentimental error to sup
pose a non-partisan judiciary either pos
As Mr. Clarkson says : "If the presi
dent has done this because irritating ru
mor has said the senate would reject any
republican he ebould appoint, he has
proposed a renunciation of republican
principles and. taade it possible for the
supreme court to become democratic
during Cleveland's term. - Any republi
can senator could with more . loyalty to
party and honor have voted for Grover
Cleveland for four . years last November
than to vote for Jackson for life now.
To vote for him is to approve in cold
blood of the - abandonment of the
wronged and helpless republicans in the
south. It is to approve of the brutal
disregard of the rights of all colored
men in the south, and the more brutal
treatment of re$l or supposed colored
criminals in the southern states, who
are in these latter years eo frequently
burned alive or quartered at the stake.
The republican party, which is still liv
ing and which is to rule again, despite
any man's -disappointments, may well
be saved from tbe present and enduring
the historical dishonor of such an, act of
perfidy and wrong becoming an ac
complished fact." '
