COMMERCIAL TRA VELERS AND
AN OPEN RIVER.
The Columbia river is to be opened at
last. All doubt upon that point ia dis
pelled. The Travelers' Protective Asso
ciation held a meeting in Portland Sat
urday, and in the presence of invited
guest?, and with all the formality recog
nized as necessary upon such a 'weighty
occasion, decided that the obstructions
that have been like a millstone around
the neck of the enmmerce of Eastern
Oregon, shall b t-.rn away and an im
prisoned pep:n liber iiKil. This much
decided upon. th: commercial travelers
then preceded to ''resolute" how the
great task of opening the Columbia
from Pasco to the jetty should be accom
plished. Although the question is one
that is bothering the minds of compe
tent engineers to eay nothing of the
many people who are devoting much at
tention to the subject though not claim
ing technical knowledge thd commer
cial travelers were not in the least per
turbed by the immensity of the task.
Upon the motion of Mr. Alexander
Kunz Mr. Kunz has been beard from
before on this subject a resolution was
passed that since the government is eo
everlastingly slow in its half-hearted en
deavors to afford the asked-for relief,
the duty devolves upon the farmers of
of Eastern Oregon to remove the ob
structions in the Columhia.
Mr. Kunz' plan, in brief, is to "inter
est the mercbants, and especially the
farmers, in the countries adjacent to the
Columbia river, and to eet the mer
chants to contribute and the farmers to
guarantee to furnish next fall, a certain
number of .bushels of wheat to the com
pany, according to the size of their re
spective farms, conditions and liberality.
Mr. Kunz thinks in this way 1,090,000
bushels of wheat would be subscribed,
which would represent a capital of from
1300,000 to 350,000.
This, in brief, is Mr. Kunz' plan. It
sounds well when spoken in meeting;
but would prove most lamentably weak
when attempted to he put in practice.
Has this great government come to the
puss that it must call upon the farmers,
who are already struggling under the
weight of two or three mortgages, un
wisely incurred perhaps, but still made
necessary where the soil was broken by
men who had no capital but their strong
arms? The farmers east of the Cas
cades have enough to do without usurp
ing the functions of national government
and carrying on a system of internal
improvements, of a kind stupendous and
untried. The farmers are a patient
class, working hard and getting little in
return ; but they will hardly consent to
Mr. Kunz' plan, however well meant
may be the intention. The state of
Oregon has built a portage at the Cas
cades, and the people of Eastern Oregon
and The- Dalles have placed a line of
boats upon the river so the charge of
lacking in self-help cannot be made
In the second place the plan is utterly
impracticable. To whom shall tho
farmers give this tribute? and what
guarantee is there that the trust shall
be. honestly administered? To turn
over a million bushels of wheat to a
company of men accountable to no one,
would open up an avenue for dishonesty
which would undoubtedly lead to scan
dal. The farmers of this section have
enough to attend to without seeking
more opportunity for draining their re
sources. Should Mr. Kunz' plan be put
in operation the national govern
ment would be calling upon the farmers
of the country to donate wheat for
the building of the Nicaragua canal.
Donation" parties are popular in the
rural communities, where they are often
the means of paying a country ministers'
salary, but the system is hardly applica
ble on a larger scale. The commercial
travellers are considered great jokers,
but this latest one at the Portland meet
ing is the biggest they have ever per
petrated. Hon. W. R. Ellis, member of congress
from this district, has been elected sec
retary of the republican congressional
caucus." He received 139 votes to 77 for
Mr. Hooker of New York. This election
is a compliment to our representative,
and shows him possessed of influence
among his associates in the party.
Independence West Side: It is after
all a good thing for him that Mr. Cleve
land cannot Bee his administration as
others see it. He might do something
Heppner Gazette: It would not be
surprising if Oregon's republican dele
gates should cast their votes in national
convention for a Western man, and prob
ably that man will be Allison. t
Evening Telegram : Harrison's wood
sawing policy is doing more to push him
toward the nomination than could be
done by having him announce bis can
didacy. Several weeks ago Senator Al
lison's boom was formally launched in
Chicago, and since then nothing has
been heard of it. The coquette is al
ways more interesting than the girl who
carries her heart upon her sleeve.
New Year's ere will be the occasion
of a swell social event in this city. At
a recent meeting of the Columbia Hose
Company it was decided to give a grand
bail New Years, at which the beauty
and fashion of The Dalles should gather..
The arrangements will be made on a
large scale, and from the way the boys
are pushing the matter the occasion will
be a gorgeous one. - A committee, con
sisting of E. C. Pease, Jndd S. Fish, R.
H. Lonsdale, George Gibons and F. S.
Gunning, lias been appointed to take
full charge of all. arrangements, and
from the make-up of the committee it
can be told that nothing but the best
will prevail. The dance just given by
the Mount Hood company was a great
success in every way, and there is no
doubt but what the same can be said at
the close of the Columbia ball.
The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least one
dreaded disease that science has been
able to cure in all its stages and that is
Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is the
only postive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional treatment. Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous sur
faces of the system, thereby destroying
the foundation of the disease, and giv
ing the patient strength by building up
the constitution and assisting nature in
doing its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers, that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
case that it fails to cure. Send for list
of Testimonials. Address,

The monthly social of the Gesang
Verein Harmonie was well attended last
evening and the singing was very much
appreciated by those present. The euc
cess of the society in Eingiog ia due in a
large measure to the efforts of Professor
Birgfeld, its efficient instructor. The
vocal eolo by Mr. Karl Gottfried was very
well rendered and the young "gentleman
compelled to respond to an encore. The
society gave several very acceptable
selections. The Orchestra Union ren
dered some of its choice pieces, some of
tEem new ones played for the first time
to a Dalles audfence. The Gesang
Verein is one of the pleasantt-st social
and miisic.il organizations in The Dalles
and provides many delightful evenings
