JULY 16, 1894
Congress is monkeying with the strike
proposition and trying to devise some
schemes to control a disease which may
be said to have become epidemic. As
usual with that body, some brainless in
dividual offers a bill that is calculated
to reach the effects, but not the causes.
Boards of arbitration and congressional
medicine in the shape of bills are not
needed. What the country needs is a
medicine that will reach the cause, and
ao cure, instead of relieving the disease.
Iet some congressman who' wants fame
introduce a bill prohibiting absolutely
all immigration for ten years for a
tarter. This would give the labor in
this country a chance. As it is, foreign
labor comes here faster than work can
be found for it, and hence all labor be
comes a drag in the market and is
Then, too, put the tariff laws on an
honest basis, pass a bill providing for
removing the protection from American
manufactures or products as soon as the
wages paid tire less than a stated per
cent higher than are paid in Europe for
The O. K. & N. company will be
run on business principles by busi
ness men, who are looking out for its
individual interests, instead of the gen
eral interest of the Union Pacific. Al
ready arrangements have been com
pleted with the Great Northern by
which that road will reach Portland
over the O. R. & N., and others are
pending with the Northern Pacific,
while the Union Pacific and Short Line
'must still use it to reach the coast.
This would give the road an abundance
of business and at the same time would
direct the wheat shipments of the Pa
louse and Eastern Washington to Port
land. One of the most disagreeable duties a
country editor has to perform is to re
fuse to print obituary notices done up in
Thyme, yet if he does not refuse ninety
nine times out of a hundred he neglects
his duty. It looks like a small request
to refuse, but once the thing gets
started there is no end to it? Besides a
brief prose notice is far preferable, for
not all of us are poets, and if we were,
obituary poesy i9 the most difficult to
handle. We want to say now, once for
all, that under no circumstance will we
print that kind of matter.
The Hood River Glacier has changed
hands Mr. Samuel F. Blythe being the
new owner and editor. He has had
years of experience in and with Oregon
newspapers and we feel confident will, if
the community gives him the patronage
it should, make them a paper of which
they will be proud, and which will at
the same time do good work in bringing
the right kind of citizens to Hood River
Prendergast is at last judicially and
judiciously disposed of. Friday morn
ning'at 11:48 he took a final tumble to
himself through the platform, bis head
twisted to one side, his neck was broken
and his crime expiated as fully as it
could be on earth. It was almost nine
months from the time he unprovoked
Bhot down Carter Harrison, until he
paid the penalty of his crime ; just eight
months too long.
Everyone quite naturally complains of
the heat, seemingly forgetful of the fact
that this is the time of the year for it to
he hot, and that if it wasn't so, it would
be contrary to nature. The old negro
was right when be remarked thaf'white
folks, when they wasn't prayin' for
rain, was wishin' it would cl'ar up."
If Prineville and Antelope don't quit
quarreling about baseball there is liable
to be a perpetual coolness between the
two places. We sugeest that they both
strike if the argument doesn't show up
The Firemen's Tournament. '
The Oregon City Enterprise says :
"The next Firemeu'a Association will
be held in this city the last week in
September and it is the intention of the
firemen here to make it the best meet
ing ever held and in order to insure its
success they will arrange for a two day's
tournament during which time some fine
races and contests will come off. In
order to make all necessary preparations
for this meeting, committees have been
appointed by Chief Engineer O.Connell."
Oregon City is one of the prettiest and
most progressive places in the state, and
it has one of the best fire departments
too. The Oregon City boys came up
Lere last year bringing a good team, and
a brass band. The Dalles boys should
return the compliment, and we hope in
a fpirit of generous rivalry will send
down a team and competing for the
prizes, show our Oregon City friends
that we appreciated their visit.
Thb Chkoniclb prints all the news.

Are Receiving; Freight.
The O. R. & N. gives notice that it
will commence receiving freight from
Portland for points east tomorrow. The
road is expected to be finished to the
Locks from Portland in a day or so, and
from the former place freight will be
forwarded by flat boats to The Dalles.
The road from Celilo to Rufus will soon
be in running order so that but one
transfer will be required, that from the
Locks here. Workjs progressing rapidly
on the section between here and Hood
River, and three weeks or a month
should see it finished.
At the Shops.
The O. R. &. N. has fifteen engines
here., but as all of them were under
water, they do not look as bright and
handsome as usual. They will receive
a thorough cleaning and polishing by
the time the road is ready for them.
The nigh water left the round house
and yards in a bad shape? There was
wreckage and drift of all kinds, and
with it all, from ten to fifteen inches of
mud and sediment. Mr. DeHuff has a
gang of men cleaning up the shops, but
it Is a slow job.

Deafness Cannot be Cared
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous - lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect bearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is the result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catarrh)
that cannpt be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars, free.
