THE PONY EXPRESS.
We have just finished reading' an
article in the Sunday Oregonian, entitled
"The Pony Express," and written by
John Henry Martin. Outside of some
. dates, we doubt if there is a true state
ment in it. The roads along the Carson
river never existed except below where
the Nevada state prison stands, ' and
there the Carson river runs through a
country where the sage brush grows
down to the water's edge, and the
country is as level as the flats about
Umatilla. There never was a pony ex
press rider killed by the Piutes. Jn
fact that tribe never killed anyone ex
cept at the famous battle of Pyramid
lake, and then nobody was hurt only
those- who- out ran themselves getting
way. It may be possible that someone
has been stuffing Mr. Martin, but if not,
it is a clear case that John Henry is try
ing to stnff the balance of ns. We lived
at Carson at the time the pony express
was started, and "Pony Bob" and other
wild west side shows were not there.
We wish to say, however, that the Ore
gonian is not responsible for the story
that honor being reserved for McClare's
A PRACTICAL HUMANITARIAN.
f Miss Adalina Lucinda Brown, the ac
complished graduate of a Buffalo, N. Y.,
seminary, who was married to a Pitt
river Indian in Modoc county, where
she is teaching an Indian school, was
formerly a teacher at Yainax agency, in
Klamath county. She is a humanita
rian, and zealously labors for the up
lifting of the Indian, Negro and other
neglected and somewhat despised races.
Yet the nobility of the lady's ideas re
ceives the studied contempt of the press
of the coast. There may be such a
thing as the lady being right and the
opinion of the papers rotten. Ashland
It is quite certain that Miss Adalina
LuciDda Brown might have been done
more brown than she has been. She
might, for instance, have married a
white man with no higher ideas than
those of the gentleman who penned
the article above quoted. An educated
woman who marries an Indian for the
purpose of ''uplifting" him is only
lowering herself to his level.
The Pendleton East Oregonian be
lieves that the repeal of all-laws for the
collection of debts would do more to re
lieve the workers and producers than
any other one thing proposed or to be
proposed, and that paper further says :
"It would simply prevent the manipu
lative, speclative and parasitical classes
from getting on the backs and bodies of
the masses, to gradually exhaust their
resources and destroy their vitals. It
would drive capital into industry in
stead of into bonds and mortgages, to
give employment to labor and encour
agement to enterprise. It would largely
prevent the watering of stocks and dis
continue the practice of holding up the
workers and producers to exact from
them dividends on these inflated and
corrupt values. Debt is at the bottom
of the sea of social troubles and laws to
encourage and perpetuate it are laws
Against the best interests of the people.
The secretary of the treasury, Mr.
Carlisle, is sending printed copies of the
senate bill to the customs officers.
From this it can easily be inferred that
the secretary knows what the ultimate
fate of the bill be. Cleveland has given
no intimation as to what he intends to
do with the bill, but Carlisle would cer
tainly not be preparing to put the new
law in force unless he knew it was going
to be the law.
The president is still at Buzzard's bay
wrestling with his defeat and tbe mala
ria. Gorman still sits in Washington
awaiting his return. The senate tariff
bill will be the law in a few days more,
but the president will see Gorman
blowed before he will sign it, and then
The war between Japan and China so
far seems to have been fought principally
in the newspapers. As far as lying is
concerned honors are pretty easy, though
we incline to the opinion that the Japs
excel in that as well as the other bar
barous arts of war. '
Congress still manages to keep a quo
ram, bat that is about all it can do.
When the tariff bill is finally settled
there will be a grand scattering for

The Most Gorgeous Treasures of Arabia.
What a splendid picture it brought
before your mind I You read the glow-
which the genii of the ring spread be
fore Aladdin's gaze. Yon perused this
favorite story of yours in "Arabian
Nights" when a boy, and your imagina
tion pictured brilliantly for you every
thing that the words suggested.
That was when you were a boy. To
day, possibly, you are unable to do it.
Shall we tell you the reason why? Most
probable because your liver is sluggish,
and as a consequence you suffer -from
sick headache, dizziness, and constipa
tion. Do you want to cure all the&e
troubles permanently, make your liver
active, your imagination lively, and in
general enjoy things as you did when a
bev? All vou have to do is to use Dr.
Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, purely vegeta
ble, perfectly harmless, the smallest and
easiest to take, and they are the cheap
eat because they are guaranteed to give
satisfaction, or your money is returned.
What more can you ask?
PARIS' VENDOME COLUMN.
A Few .Words of Its History and tbe 'Facta
of Its Destruction
The Vendome Column in Paris, which
was destroyed by the Commune in 1871,
was erected by Napoleon I., principally
of cannon taken' at Ulm, to commemo
rate the victory of Austerlitz in 1805.
It was covered with four hundred and
twenty-five bronze plaque, molded in
bas-relief to display the chief incidents
in the Austrian campaign of that year.
They were each three feet and eight
inches high, and formed a continuous
band, inclosing1 the column twenty-two
times as it circled to the top, the entire
length of the spiral being eight hun
dred and forty feet. Instead of Charle
magne, as at first intended, it was sur
mounted by a statue of the first Na
poleon in a Roman costume and
crowned with laurel. After several
postponements it was brought to the
ground on the ICth of May in the pres
ence of many thousands who had
waited for hours to witness the spec
tacle. Owing to some engineering difficul
ties in cutting the base it could not be
brought down at the time originally
fixed. The members of the Commune
attended in state to witness the affair,
and sentinels were posted about half
way down the Rue de la Paix to pre
vent the crowd from approaching too
close, as up to the last moment acci
dents were feared. At half past five in
the afternoon the ropes were tightened,'
and suddenly the column was observed
to lean forward toward Rue de la
Paix, then finally to fall with a dull,
heavy thud, raising as it did so an im
mense cloud of dust. Before it touched
the ground it separated into three
parts by its own weight, and on reach
ing the bed of dirt and fagots to re
ceive it broke into at least thirty pieces.
The statue of Napoleon, on reaching
the ground, broke off from its pedestal
at the ankles, then at the knees, the
waist, and the neck, while the iron
railings which surrounded the summit
of 'the monument were shivered to
pieces. Shortly after the column had
fallen spectators were permitted to
traverse the place to witness the wreck,
but were not permitted to take away
any of the fragments.

Dr. ICing's New Discovery for consump
tion, coughs and colds, that it cured his
wife who was threatened with pneumonia
after an attack of "la grippe," when
various other remedies and several phy
sicians had done her no good. Robert
Barber, of Cooksport, Pa., claims Dr.
King's New Discovery has done' him
more good than anything he ever used
for lung trouble. Nothing like it. Try
