WEDNESDAY". - OCTOBER 17. 1894
' It is indeed good news to learn that an
effort is "being made to redeem the ex
position building, and to pnt the society
on ita feet. Us country folks have a very
warm corner in onr hearts for the ex
position, ior there our prod nets were ex
hibited in such a way as could not be
done at home. We realize how much
good it accomplished and how fine an
advertisement it was for us, giving us an
opportunity to display our products
where others than Oregonians might see
them. We appreciated the exposition
and we want to add that we patronized
it too, and that liberally. Thousands of
people visited Portland every fall, on
purpose to. see the display, who but for
it would have remained at home. By
, all means let the buildings be redeemed
and the exhibits again made.
The very important suit entitled State
of Oregon ex rel A. C Taylor, respondent,
vs. Sylvester Permoyer et al., appellants,
which is the case involving the right of
the state to erect a branch insane
asylum in Eastern Oregon, has been de
cided. That is to say, the preliminary
decision has been made, which in the
course of time may finally lead to a real
settlement of the question. The court
reversed the order of the lower court on
a technicality, it being that the com
plaint does not state facts sufficient to
call into requisition the restraining
powers of a court of equity. 'The supreme
court intimates that the questions pre
sented are in effect the same as those in
volving the location of the Soldiers'
Home at Roeeburg and that the final
decision would be the same, but refused
to pass upon the constitutionality of the
act, as long as it could dodge it.
Governor Lord, in an interview at San
Francisco, gives the credit of his large
majority to the free silver attitude of the
party, and insists that Oreeon is a free
eilver state. If the governor is correct,
then the election pf the members of the
legislature is due to the same cause, and
that body can, or at least should, be set
. down as friends of silver. The question
then arises, whom will it elect to the
United States senate? Senator Dolph is
an able man, and it is generally conceded
that be will be his own successor, yet
the senator is perhaps one of the strong
est of gold-bugs, that is, he is opposed to
any attempt on the part of the United
i States to restore silver without an inter
national agreement. Now either Gov
ernor Lord has mistaken his premises,
pr the legislature is placed in an embar
rassins position with regard to re-elect
ing Senator Dolph.
The struggles ot Well roan and his little
party to reach the north pole combine
the pathetic with the ludicrous. After
abandoning their steamer and taking to
the ice the party reached Walden's Isl
and July 22d. August 6th, struggling
heroically forward, they sighted the
ship Berntine, which had been cruising
much further north than they were, and
was on its return trip. The party hired
the ship to take them back to Tromsoe.
So they made the return trip in two
days, and then just think of the poor
fellows' feelings struggling over the ice
when they run across a ship that had
been sailing far to the north of them.
The latest news from Hawaii is to the
effect that the government ears a royal
ist uprising assisted by the British, all
caused by those who fear annexation to
the United States. There is probably
no cause for fearing British interference.
This country may or may not annex
Hawaii, but there is no doubt but that
it will never permit any other country
to take charge of it. As a matter of
eeli protection this country will insist
upon the absolute freedom of Hawaii,
and does not donbt her ability to enforce
her demands against the world.
Portland is agitating the removal of
the remnants of the late fair held at Ta
coma, to her own limits, and the setting
tip of final tail-ender exhibition. When
the fair started at Tacoma we. suggested
that when it ended the remnants be
taken to Celilo, and there lulled to rest
by the noise of rushing waters, that it
be allowed to finally twinkle out. This
seemed to us a fitting ending of its taper
ing off; but if Portland enters the field
as a rival to Celilo, the latter will have
A friend of ours insists it was a demo
crat that captured the money from the
express office. He says : "If it had
been a populist, be would have taken
the.Bilver and left the gold, and if it had
been a republican, he would have car
ried off the other thousand, or broken
his back trying ; but that a democrat,
not being 'able to take everything in
sight, would, from force of habit, accom
modate himself to his opportunities.
The Portland Sun is getting a hustle
on. Its first issue gave an account of
the robbery here, and today it comes out
with the full decision of the Supreme
court in the branch asylum case. It is
right in the swim, and will make the
older papers get a move on for state
news, or else get left.
Having suggested Celilo as the proper
place for holding the last remnant of the
world's fair, in the interest of harmony,
now that Portland has vswiped"it, we
withdraw our candidate and buggest
that when Portland is through, the last
sad, but, welcome rites be performed at
Editor Grant, of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
took passage on the ship
Ivan hoe for San Francisco ' twenty-one
days ago. Since that vessel sailed she
has been spoken but once and that just
as she passed out of the Straits of Fuca.
The vessel is now eleven days overdue,
and fears are entertained that she is lost.
General Lew Wallace is in Portland.
As a soldier and diplomat General Wal
lace is at the top notch but his fame will
be imperishable not from these qualities
but from his supremacy as a writer.
Ben Hur will live when the records of
brave deeds and wise statesmanship are
lost in oblivion. .
Governor Pennoyer expresses himself
as well satisfied with the decision of the
supreme court concerning the branch
asylum, and it is intimated that the
deal will now be closed for the land at
Union, but that nothing further would
be done, the whole matter .being turned
over to Governor Lord.
GYMKHANA IN LONDON.
Bow the English Are Amnsine Them
selTes with an Indian Sport. .
The gymkhana, a sort of g-ymnastic
hash, in which the participants are ex
pected to exercise their ingenuity in
devising all sorts of unheard of per
formances, has been introduced into
England from India. The sport is very
popular in that part of the orient, but
is little known in western countries.
The idea was launched in London
the other day, and according to the
papers there the lovers of sport have
gone crazy over it. The most amusing
event on the programme was a cos
tume race. Seated on side saddles and
attired in dresses of the gayest - colors
and the most startling cut five men
went round the course, which included
a bushed hurdje.- Two ballet girls
(both men) covered their ponies' quar
ters with voluminous skirts, a Dolly
Varden and baby in bed gown and sun
bonnet, and raced for the fence, and
Charley's Aunt brought up the rear.
Another feature of. the day was the ohr
stacle race, in which a variety of ob
jects likely to put ponies on were ar
ranged round the course. The one
that attracted people most was the
series of paper screens through which
the ponies had to force their Way. The
head-to-tail race and the handkerchief
dash were mirth-provoking' features.
In the former men rode at lively speed
with their faces toward the horses'
tails, and in'the latter a rider dropped
a lady's handkerchief on the ground,
then at a gallop picked it up without
leaving the saddle.
The Impudent Weasel.
Impudence seems to be the leading
characteristic with the weasel in his
relations with man. Perhaps the crea
ture has confidence that his long, slen
der body can always be snatched away
into safety before the ordinary human
being, can do him harm. At any rate,
the weasel will coolly sit in the chink
of a stone wall and watch the doings
of men within a short stone's throw of
his asylum, and after nightfall the
beast will crawl about fearlessly with
in a yard or two of any human being
that may approach his haunts.
Both Ways Across the United States.
The greatest length of the United
States from east to west is on the par
allel of 45 degrees north latitude, that
is to say, from Eastport, Me., on the
Atlantic coast, to a point on the Pacific
exactly 52 miles due west of Salem,
Ore. On the above parallel it is exact
ly 2,768 miles long. Its greatest width
from north to south is on the 97th de
gree of longitude, which extends
through the United States in an almost
direct line from Pembina, N. D., to
Point Isabel, Tex. The greatest width
is l.CllJs miles. -

you feel the good that's done by Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It
purifies the blood. And through the
blood, it cleanses, repairs, and invigor
the whole system.
In recovering from "La Grippe," or in
convaleeence from pneumonia, fevers,
or other wasting diseases, nothing can
equal it as an appetizing and restorative
tonic to build up the needed flesh and
strength. It rouses every organ into
natural action, promotes all the bodily
functions, and restores health and vigor.
For every disease that comes from a
torpid liver or impure blood, Dyspepsia,
Indigestion, . Biliousness, and the most
stubborn Skin, Scalp or-Scrofulous af
fections, the "Discovery" is the only
remedy so certain that it can be guaran
teed. If it doesn't benefit or cure, in
every case, you have your money back.
For a perfect and permanent cure for
Catarrh, take Dr. Sage's Catarrh Kem

for an incurable ease of Catarrh.
