STRIKES A FAILURE.
The strikes that are now being daily
reported by telegraph nearly all result
one way, that is, adverse to the strikers,
and much suffering ensues from the
many that are thrown out of work
thereby. The conclusion would be that
strikes should be discontinued and some
other means resorted to. Another rea
son exists for discontinuing strikes.
They invariably result in bad feeling
between the parties, when a mutual
friendship is not only advantageous, but
necessary. Possibly arbitration would
funish a key to the solution of the
problem. In view of the disastrous ef
fects to both sides of the recent great
Btrikes, (the Homestead strike for ex
ample, having lost $2,000,000 in good
money, besides a great loss of life,) any
new means that would regulate the rate
of wages and leave both sides in an
amicable relation, should be hailed with
enthusiasm. It is a fact that American
workmen receive the highest wages of
any in the world, and notwithstanding
this there are disaffections among their
ranks continually and in all quarters of
the nation. An investigation into the
Johnstown flood revealed the presence
of diamonds on the bodies of many of
the drowned workmen and their wives
of the little manufacturing city. Wages
should never be demanded to supply
diamonds. With diamonds are the con
comitants of silk and broadcloth dress,
expensive banquets and costly society
demands of various kinds, which nature
never intended to be enjoyed by all ; and
this is reasonable. The law of the sur
vival of the fittest is here, as elsewhere,
applicable. Those who are gifted with
a commercial brain will rise to wealth,
and those who carry the hod are not ex
pected to wear the same jewels as their
employers. Wages in the United States
in general are ample to supply everyone
with all the necessaries and many lux
uries, and it is a significent fact that in
the old days when day wages were a
third and a half what they are today,
the workman was far happier than now,
when he feels called upon to grapple
with questions of state and political
economy, for which his training does not
fit him and his time not adequate for
their proper consideration.
"From much of the talk going, one
might suppose that the progress and
prosperity of Oregon, its very salvation,
lay at Chicago. A saner idea is that the
development of Oregon lies at home,
not at Chicago. The more of our peo
ple, therefore, who stay at home and
mind their own business the better for
Oregon . ' ' Oregon! B r. .
Whatever the press of Oregon or the
people of Oregon may think of the views
of the editor of the Oregonlan as here
expressed, Ti:k Chronicle wishes to
say that it is net in sympathy with any
such, policy for this state. If we are
sufierii!- from anything today, it is that
the state is not well known and the ad
vantages itjjil'ers for the settlers aro too
little iippreeiated. We depend upon
immigration for our development, and
without it we can not make the state of
Oregon a place of agreeable residence.
The soeial instinct is not dying out
among the human race, but it is daily
becoming stronger. We may enthuse
as we please upon the beauties, the re
sources, and the products and fertility
of our state, but until our acres are
tilled, our mines arc opened, and our
timber is utilized, we shall not be in the
full enjoyment of all our privileges. We
shall never make ourselves Known or re
spected throughout the country by
adopting a policy of isolation. More
than anything that has occurred since
the foundation of this government we
believe this Chicago exposition is to aid
in making this one united country, and
to harmonize all the different sections
by creating in each one respect for and
interest in the others. No state in the
anion is more in need of a broad trans
continental policy than this sparsely
settled one of Oregon where energy is
unemployed and resources are but im
perfectly utilised. Stretching for miles
back of The Dalles are thousands and
thousands of acres of land of unequaled
fertility for growing, and in a climate
matchless in capability for maturing
fruit in perfection of size and flavor.
Millions of people may receive assurance
of this fact if we are this year properly
and intelligently represented in Chicago.
A FAMOUS MOUNTAIN.
Mont Pilate, in Switzerland, Hear
the Lake Lucerne.
The Origin of Its Peculiar Name Legend
Connected with the Snow-Capped
Peak The Summit Reached by
"Earth has built the gTeat watch-towers
of the mountains, and they lift their
heads far up into the sky and gaze ever
upward and around to see if the Judge
of the world comes not," wrote Long
fellow, the pure-hearted poet who
needed not to be upon the mountain top
to see a vision of exalted things. But
we more earthy can find an inspira
tion in Mont Pilate, the cloud-capped
summit, awful in its mysterious shroud
of darkness, with sudden thunder
crashing amid overhanging precipices,
and terrible in its shock.
Mont Pilate is one of the most inter
esting in peak-bristling Switzerland,
says the Illustrated American.
It stands at the end of the Lake of
Lucerne, in the beautiful TJnterwalden
canton. It would be impossible to im
agine anything more effective than the
bold mountain advancing into the lake
and checking itself suddenly in the
depths of the pale green waters.
The lower part is covered with green
pasture lands, where the patient cattle
graze undisturbed by the muttering
thunder above. The upper part is bare
and steep, often hidden in clouds, and
when Mont Pilate wears his "night
cap," as the peasant calls it, the boat
men will not venture out upon theVlake.
The greatest peak, the Tomlishorn,
rises to a height of 6,998 feet. Quite
near the summit lies Lake Pilatus, a
deep, dark pool, the central point of in
terest in the traditions of the mountain.
The original name of the mountain
was Mons Pileatus, meaning "hooded
peak," but it is now always called Mont
Pilate. The legend runs that after
Pontius Pilate's death his body was
flung into the Tiber, causing it to over
flow; next it was thrown into the
RAILROAD TO MOST PILATE, IN SWITZER
LAND, NEAR LAKE LUCERNE.
Rhone, but here again it raised a storm
so great that it was carried up Mont
Pilate and sunk in the black, silent
lake near the summit. Here again it
made storms arise, and every year, on
Good Friday, the devil lifts him out of
the pool and sets him on a judgment
seat where he washes his hands anew.
A few years ago, the tourist who
wished to penetrate the solitudes of
Mont Pilate had to climb the rugged
paths afoot, for not even the sure-stepping
donkey could make the ascent
with a human burden on his back. This
difficulty has been removed by the dis
figuring hand of progress, which has
constructed a tooth-and-rack railroad
from the little hamlet of Alpnach to
the top. Here are two comfortable
hotels, and one can contemplate
luxuriously the exquisite panorama'' of
the Bernese Alps; but the view was
sometimes obstructed by clouds, and to
remove even this last disadvantage
vandalism was pushed still further. A
steel tower was begun in 1891 , which is
to be three hundred feet in diameter at
its base and eight hundred and forty
feet high, so as to pierce any envelop
ing1 cl ud.
S. II. Clifford, New Cassei, Wis., was
troubled with neuralgia and rheuma
tism, his stomach was disordered, his
liver was affected to an alarming de
gree, appetite fell away, and he was
terribly reduced in flesh and strength.
Three bottles of Electric Bitters cured
him. Edwd Shepherd, Harrisburg, 111.,
had a running sore on his leg of eight
years' standing. Used three bottles of
Electric Bitter and seven boxes of
Bucklen's Arnica Salve, and his leg is
sound and we'll. John Speaker, Cataw
ba, O., bad five large fever sores on his
leg, doctors said he was incurable. One
bottle' Electric Bitters and one box
Bucklen's Arnica Salve cured him en

In an eastern city, recently, two phy
sicians were walking together on the
street, when one of them lifted his hat
to a lady whom they met. "A patient?"
asked the other. "Oh, in a way," "an
swered the first doctor; "I treated her
the other day for a small difficulty. "
"What was it?" "A wart on the nose."
"And what did you prescribe?" "I or
dered her to refrain absolutely from
playing the piano." The other doctor
was astonished. "Ordered her to leave
off playing the piano for a wart on the
nose! Well, I can't understand your
treatment." "If you knew the circum
stances, you would," said the first doc
tor; "she occupies the flat just under

Persons who are subject to attacks of
bilious colic can almost invariably tell,
by their, feelings, when to expect an at
tack. If Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Eemedy is taken as soon
as these symptoms appear, they can
ward off the disease. Such persons
should always keep the Remedy at hand,
ready for immediate use when needed.
Two or three doses of it at the right
time will save them much suffering.

What Your Great Grandmother Did.
She hetcheled the flax and carded the
wool, and wove the linen, and spun the tow,
and made the clothes for her husband and
ten children. She made butter and cheese,
she dipped tallow candles, to light the house
at night, and she cooked all the food for her
household by an open fire place and a brick
oven. Yes; and when she was forty years of
age, she was already an old lady whoso best
days were over. Her shoulders were bent and
her joints enlarged by hard work, and she
wore spectacles and a cap.
Her great granddaughter, with all the
modern conveniences for comfort, refinement
and luxury, may be as charming and attract
ive at forty-five as at twenty. Especially is
this true if she preserves her health by the
use of Dr Pierce's Favorite Prescription,
which wards off all female ailments and ir
regularities, cures them if they already exist,
keeps the life current healthful and vigorous,
and enables the woman of midlp age to re
tail! the freshness of girlhood upon brow and
cheek, the light of youth in her eyes, and
its elasticity in her step.
Go to your drug store, pay a dollar, get a
bottle and try it try a second, a third if nec

you'll know that there's a remedy to help you.
Then you'll keep on and a cure'll come.
But if you shouldn't feel the help, should
be disappointed in the results you'll find
