TO KILL THE LOCKS.
It is reported, and the report seems
to be reliable, that the supervising engi
neer at the Cascade Locks has forwarded
a recommendation to the authorities at
Washington that the upper bulkhead in
the canal be not removed until the side
walls of the canal are completed to the
extra height, which the engineers con
sider necessary to protect the works
from such floods as we had last year.
That the walls should eventually be
raised to the height recommended is
perhaps proper ; . but that the bulkhead
should be left until that time is absurd.
The original plans placed the walls
above the high water of 1876, which,
with tht exception of last year, was the
highest known since the whites first
came to the country, eighty years ago.
The only object in leaving ihe bulkhead
would be to prevent damage to the
works by a higher water than that of
1876, and as that height has only been
equalled once in eighty years, it does
seem that the engineer is suddenly
struck with an over-abundance of cau
tion. It seems also that there must be
some other reason for making this more.
If the Day Bros, are let alone, and are
allowed to complete their contract ac
cording to the terms thereof, the canal
. will be open and boats that now ply the
lower Columbia, will find their way to
The Dalles within twelve months at
the most. The Day Bros, are anxious
to accomplish this result, but if the rec
ommendation mentioned is adopted, the
work will not be completed in five years.
In the first place, the present contract
can hot of course be finished until the
bulkhead is taken out; the bulkhead
cannot be taken out until another ap
propriation is made, and another appro
priation cannot be made until the clos
ing days of the next congress, which
will be more than a year. The question
arises as to whether an engineer and an
unreasonable engineer at that, is to be
permitted to tie up the work at the
locks for an indefinite time, and to re
tard the development of the great inland
country for years to satisfy a whim, or
to lengthen and fatten a personal job,
We have waited patiently the com
pletion of the canal, but we are not dis
posed to wait yet another five years at
the dictation of an ass, whether it be a
government animal or not.
A NEW BANGER.
A return tide has set in with our for
eign immigration and nearly as many
are returning as come over. But the
serious part is that it is the educated,
law-abiding immigrants who are return
ing to their native lands whilst the law
less, ignorant rable from Southern and
Central Europe are pouring in in still
greater numbers. On this subject The
Interior of Chicago has the following
pointed remarks :
There is a general jubilation in the
East over the fact that the tide of immi
gration has turned, and thousands are
going back to the old world every week
from American ports. But so far as we
see our exchanges fail to note that it is
the wrong crowd that is going back. It
is not the Neopolitan' but the Dane ; not
the Hun but the Swede. The Moats and
the Schwabs and the Niebes and the
Lings only flow in one direction. We
are losing thousands of honest workmen
upon whom conditions of life in the old
world never pressed so heavy but they
are willing to return to it. But the
drastic measures introduced in every
legislative Doay ot Europe to purge
itself of anarchists, will . result in
dumping upon our shores a less desira
ble class than ever. Industrial depres
sion has no terrors for a class that never
wanted to work ; and riot and turbu
lence attract the riotous as the thunder
of the captains and the shoutings draw
the war horse to 'the field of conflict.
TT 1 . ...
uniess measures ior our relief are
promptly introduced we shall have fewer
immigrants, but worse ones."
w e are not vindictive, neither are we
quick to take offense, but there are
some things that the mildest mannered
of men are compelled to resent. One of
those occasions has come to us, and we
feel that nothing short of editorial gore
supplied by the managing editor of the
Oregonian can ever balance accounts,
In the guilelessness of our heart, the
other day we noted the fact that we had
been mistaken for. Debs. Then the
Oregonian fiend resurrected the cut of "a
fearful example," hairless, bent, aged
idiotic, and of it said: "This is Debs."
Weighing Coin In ths Bank of England.
All the sovereigns and halt-sovereigns
received here immediately undergo, in a
large room adjoining, the ordeal of the
weighers, or separators. These are
small brass boxes, perhaps a' cubic foot
in size, with glass sides. In the center
of the brass top is a small round hole, a
little larger than the sovereign, which is
filled by the round plate of a delicate
balance. Upon this balance the sov
ereigns or half-sovereigns, according to
the machine, slide, one at a time, by
their own weight from an inclined half-
tube, in which they are placed by the
handful, forming a long inclined cylinder
of gold coins. As each coin weights the
balance, the latter sinks. If the coin be
of standard weight, the balance sinks
far enough for a tiny steel finger, moving
to the left, to tilt the coin off down a
tube into a receptacle below. If the
coin be light in weight, the balance does
not sink so far, and the coin is caught by
a second finger, moving in the opposite
direction, which tilts it into a receptacle
on the right. These machines work
automatically and perfectly, and save an
amount of labor which can only be im
agined, testing thirty million pieces per
annum. The room contains sixteen of
them, all working silently and regularly
by atmospheric engine power, under the
care of a single employe. Tne light
coins are immediately split in half and
returned to the mint, while those of
standard weight remain in circulation.

The Discovery SaTed Bis Life.
Mr. G. Caillouette, druggist, Beavers
ville. 111., says : "To Dr. King's New
Discovery I owe my life. Was taken
with La Grippe and tried all the physi
cians for miles about, but of no avail,
and was given up and told I could not
live. Having Dr. King's New Discovery
in my store, I sent for a bottle and be'
gan its use, and from the first dose be'
gan to get better, and after using three
bottles was up and a-out again. It is
worth its weight in gold. We won't
keep store or house without it." Get a

A general banking business is done by
the human system, because the blood de
posits in its vaults whatever wealth we may
gain from day to day. This wealth is laid
up against " a rainy day " as a reserve fund
we're in a condition of healthy prosperity
if we have laid away sufficient capital to
draw upon in the hour of our greatest need.
There is danger in getting thin, because it's
a sign ot getting down in Health. To eaia
in blood is nearly always to gain in whole
some flesh. The odds are in favor of the
Serms of consumption, grip, or pneumonia,
' our liver be inactive and our blood im
pure, or if our flesh be reduced below a
healthy standard. What is required is an
increase in our germ-fighting strength. Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery enriches
the blood and makes it wholesome, stops
the waste of tissue and at the same time
builds up the strength. A medicine which
will rid the blood of its poisons, cleanse and
invigorate the great organs of the body,
vitalize the system, thrill the whole being
with new energy and make permanent work
of it, is surely a remedy of great value. Bnt
when we make a positive statement that o3
per cent, of all cases of consumption can, if
iaKen in uic eariy stages or. me disease, De
cured with the Discovery," it seems like
a bold assertion. All Dr. Pierce asks is that
you make a thorough investigation and
satisfy yourself of the truth of his assertion.
