Congressman Wilson is improving.
So is his bill:
The next campaign will not be a
"campaign of education." The people
are getting their education this year.
Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Gresbam take
a duck-hunting trip on the government
vessel at public expense.- About half
the people are at the same time hunt
ing for work at any price.
Multnomah county has organized
sixty-nine republican clubs. This au
gurs well for success, and is a precedent
which should be adopted in every
county in the state.
The democratic and republicans par
ties were slapped about eaually hard at
the . Pendleton people's party conven
tion. When they commence' talking
fusion with the democrats, wonder how
they will reconcile their talk. '
The populists have got in and gone to
work in season and out of season. The
convention held in Pendleton last Sat
urday nominated a full legislative and
county ticket on a scorching platform,
and endorsed Sylvester Pennoyer for
United States senator and Nathan
Pierce of Milton for governor.
, Lord Roseberry, England's new pr -mier,
is 47 years of age, and is immense
ly rich, having married the only child of
Baron Rothschild, who brought him a
splendid dowry, and was a crack foot
ball player in his youthful days, but he
has never developed the ability that
would indicate he is capable of stepping
unto the shoes of the man he succeeds.
' When Galusha A. Grow took hia seat
"in congress the other day, he found only
- one man in either the senate or house
who was in congress when Mr. Grow
first took bis seat in 1851 Senator
Harris, who was then a member of the
bouse. Hoi man of Indiana and Sickles
of New York entered congress during
-Mr. Grow's previous service. Telegram.
C. P.' Breckinridge- ought to be
expelled from congress. He is utterly
'' unfit to hold a eeat among decent and
honorable men. The testimony show
. Ing his conduct toward Miss Pollard
testimony of a character that cannot be
Vimpeached is the blackest record
"proven against any public man within
many years. A resolution for his ex
pulsion from the house ought to. pass
without a dissenting vote.' It is incredi
ble that the people of his district should
ever think of returning him to congress
This anecdote of the late General
Early is told in Southern "journals :
"Captain Surrey" had been dispatched
as an orderly from General Jackeon, or
dering General Early to hold a certain
position at all hazards. General Early,
who was not then the polished, and
courtly gentleman he afterward became,
looked at the position referred to and
eaid: "I'll be' if it can be
done." "Then," said Captain Surrey,
"I am to report to General Jackson that
this order cannot : be obeyed?" "Oh,
' no," said the general ; "by saying it
can't be done I don't mean to say I
ain't going to hold it. Not by a h 11 of
a sight." : ".
Hon. Thos. B. Reed, in a recent speech,
-gives bis reasons why times are hard.
He said : "There is no way to put
money in circulation except through
wages paid. Issuing government bonds
doesn't make circulation. Toe laborers
must earn it and spend it, and that will
make it flush. The statisticians say the
20,000,000 laboring people in this conn
try earn when they are at work from
$30,000,000 to $40,000,000 a day. The
Wilson tariff bill will cut these wages
from 10 to 25 per cent. The 10 per cent
cat on $4,000,000 a day to laboring men,
or $1,200,000,000. in a year. ' A 25 per
cent cut in wages will take $3,000,000,000
out of circulation. , One-third of our
labor is idle now. The idleness is cost
ing us probably $10,000,000 a day. I do
not wonder that the times are hard and
?that money . is tight. There is money
-enough in the banks. Thev are glutted,
vbot labor isn't getting it. - It will stay
-there till labor gets it out."

The street railway companies of
Wapinitia have reduced wages.

pounds, thanks .to Dr. Anderson. 'But
Dr. Evick is a dead shot for the grip.
By the way politic?, as well as sheep
ticks, are making their appearance. . The

slate is full and not enough offices to go
around. The demijohns (I mean demo
crats) will get their paint on soon, then
listen for the war whoop.
There was a social hop at S. E. Ferris'
residence Tuesday evening. Dancing was
the order of the evening. . About II
o'clock (be ladies, having brought their
baskets filled with the good things
which they so well know how to prepare,
spread a bountiful lunch. - Then dancing
again until - old Sol showed himself in
the ineffable glory of a spring, morning.
Say now, don't you think so much ado
about sheep is getting wearisome? Give
the farmers and other stock raisers a
chance to kick a little. Let's do away'
with electricity. It. kills the horse
market. Let's harvest our grain by
hand. Improved machinery does away
with laborers. Dispense with railroads,
so as to give the freight teams a chance.
In fact, retrograde about one hundred
years and have good times.' This coun
try was a prosperous country before
sheep came and destroyed the range,
driving every other class of stock out of
the country. Oh ye gods, just live in a
sheep country and try to be a Christian.
If you don't fail you are eure of heaven.
As to their help it has been a rule with
sheepmen to hire foreigners for years
and just as cheapas they could be got.
Now don't you think instead of pervert
ing thegood old' scriptures into political
lore and crying over a class of stock
raisers who don't need any sympathy,
'twould be better to tell the people how
Wasco county comes to be such an ex
pensive government to maintain? -

Hamlet is still at large. He makes a
circuit to the sheep camps when he gets
in need of provisions and helps himself,
but keeps well out of sight. He moves

Today Mr. Roberts started with an
extra lot of beef cattle for the Portland
markets. He has been feeding since
early fall, and bis cattle are ' in extra
fine condition. They are en route by
way of Heppner.
Last Friday night Mr. Provens and
wife were surprised, I hope happily, by
a bevy of merry-makers, intent on a
little hop for "health's sake," and it
was not until daylight that they reluc
tantly went their way homeward.''
Last week Wade Shrum, while repair
ing a revolver, accidentally let it go off,
shooting his wife through' the calf of
the leg, inflicting a' slight wound, but
enough to give him a terrible fright and
teach him a very valuable lesson.
By letter we learn that the snow at

Marriage in England.
Some curious marriage statistics of
England and Wales have recently been
made public Taking all persons
above 15 years of age, there .are 8,716,
363 unmarried, males, 4,851,548 .mar
ried males, and 484,990 widowers,
against 8,908,005 unmarried females,
4,910,649 married females, and 1,124,310
widows. .." English scientists have these
rather puzzling questions to answer:
Why does the number of widows so
greatly exceed that of the widowers?
And again, how can there be 4,916,649
married females and only- 4,851,548
married males, unless some 100,000 or
so persons have been .guilty of bigamy?
. - Long Keigns.
According. to the "Gotha Almanac,"
which has just been issued for 1894. the
queen of England has reigned longer
than any other ruler in the world, hav
ing ascended the throne in 1837. Next
to her in point of time are Emperor
Francis Joseph of Austria and Fred
erick, the grand duke of Baden. The
monarch s who have reigned the' short
est time are Prince Friederich of Wal
deck and Duke Alfred of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.
The- oldest monarch, accord
ing to the--"Almanac," is the pope,
who is more than eighty-three years of
age. . The grand duke of Luxembourg
and the king of Denmark, respectively
seventy-six and seventy-five years of
age, stand next to him in- this regard.
Grand Duke Karl Alexander, who
lives in Weimar, is fourth in point of
age, and Queen Victoria, with her seventy-!
our years, is the fifth oldest mon
arch. The youngest crowned heads
are the little queen of the Nether
lands, who is thirteen, and the king of
Spain, who is seven and a half years

The Gate City of the Inland Empire is situated at the head
of navigation on the. Middle Columbia, and is a thriving, pros-'
perous city. ' n
- ITS TERRITORY.
: It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agricultural
and grazing country, its trade reaching as far south as Summer
Lake, a distance of over two hundred miles.
The Largest Wool Market.
The rich grazing country along the eastern slope of the Cas
cades furnishes pasture for thousands of sheep, the wool from
which finds market here.
The Dalles is the largest original wool shipping point in ,
America, about 5,000,000 pounds being shipped last year. '.
The Balmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia, yielding,
this year a revenue of thousands of dollars, which will be more
than doubled in the near future.
.' The products of the beautiful - Klickitat valley find market
here, and the country south and east has this year filled the
warehouses, and all available storage ' places to overflowing with
their products. ,
. ITS; WEALTH.
It is the richest city of its size on the coast and its money is
scattered over and is being used to develop more farming country
than is tributary to any other city in Eastern Oregon. .
Its situation is unsurpassed. Its climate delightful. Its pos- .
sibilities mcalcubiU.-. Its resources unlimited. And on thew
corner toin ih- tinU!

THE CHROM ICLE was established for the ex
press purpose of faithfully representing The Dalles
and the surrounding country, and the satisfying
effect of its mission is everywhere apparent. It
now leads all other publications in Wasco, Sher
man, Gilliam, a large part of Crook, Morrow and
Grant counties, as well as Klickitat and other re- ,
gions north of The Dalles, hence it is the best .
medium for advertisers in the Inland Empire.
