THE BEST MONUMENT.
The citizens of Walla Walla have
can ne to rejjice. The first installment
of the munificent gift of Dr. Pearsons of
Chicago to Whitman college has been
received, and $ 25 ,000 placed to the credit
of the institution. Several months ago
Dr. Pearsons announced that he would
present $50,000 to Whitman college, pro
vided $150,000 be raiped elsewhere by
the friends of the school. Immediately
a canvas whs U-t-t:ii to make the realiza
tion of the proiuisn possible. The citi
zens of Wail Walla pledged $50,000,
leaving $lC0,0u0 to be subscribed. Pres
ident Penroee left for the East to con
tinue the work of completing the en
dowment, and gratifying success has
attended his efforts. On one Sunday
many churches is Chicago united in
taking up collections fur Whitman
The project of securing a substantial
endowment for this institution is a most
-worthy one. The college stands as the
monument to the martyr, Whitmar,
who, even if he did not save Oregon,
some of his ardent admirers would have
us believe, yet was a hero in every sense
of the term, leaving fortune and risking
life in devotion to the cause dearest to
his heart. Nothing can dim the halo
that surrounds Whitman because of his
labors in the cause of Christian educa
tion, bis mid-winter ride, and fearful
death; and no one in the long list of
pioneer heroes is more worthy of hon
ored remembrance. The fouuding of
an institution of learning which should
perpetuate Whitman's name and help to
advance Christian education, for which
the mart3-red missionary struggled so
hard, was long the cherished wish of
Cuahing Eels, another figure in early
Northwestern history worthy of praise.
It seems now as if the dream of Eels
will attain full realization. The endow
ment, which is practically assured, will
place the institution on a firm basis er J
cause other gifts to follow that of L.
Pearsons. Placed beyond financial e ,
barrassment the institution will expa.i
and grow, till from a frontier acadc "
it will attain high rank as a Chrkt".
college. This Northwest has no greater
. need than the one which Whitman col
lege will help to supply. Its friends
and the friends everywhere of education
that reaches the. heart, as well as tho
mind, will rejoice in the good fortune
that gr ems about to visit this pioneer
After (several weeks of anxiety, Salem
is rejoicing in the prospect that the
woolen mill will be re-built. A meeting
of business men was held yesterday, and
thi9 is the way the Statesman, Salem's
big paper announces the result, in large
head-lines: "The woolen mill is as
enred! The storm fails to dampen the
ardor of Salem's patriotic citizens. A.
splendid beginning was made in the
matter of subscribing the new stock re
quired. Thomas Kay surprises every
body with the eloquence he possesses.
Sensible talks by Meesis. Wallace, Mc
Cornack, Bingham and others. J. J.
Dalrymple arouses great enthusiasm.
Willis Dunniway makes a neat speech.
The mill all right! Salem i3 jubilant!
She has a perfect right to be. The meet
ing of the citizens last night displayed
the patriotism that builds cities and
makes them prosperous." Had Salem
allowed the woolen mills re-built in
some other city, the stigma upon the
fair name of the capital city would have
been lasting. As it is, the prompt way
in which her citizens have met the issue
will add to the good reputation of Salem
Congressman Ullis has declared his
position on the question of admitting
stock to the Cascade reservation. In a
letter addressed to the citizens of Prine
ville Mr. Ellis eays: "I am heartily in
favor of permitting sheepmen to con
tinue herding iu the Cascade mount
ains. It would, in my opinion, work a
great injury to men engaged in the sheep
business to keep them off that range,
without any corresponding benefit to the
It is stated that the O. R. & N. Co.
has reduced the rate on wheat between
Biggs and Portland to 6J cents per
bushel. This is a drop of about four
cents eince last ' year. The reasons are
obviously plain. There are two of them.
Oee is the direct influence of the D. P.
& A. N. Co., and the other the contem
plated completion or the Rattlesnake
roid, which will . open a competitive
market to the people of Sherman county.
We congratulate our neighboring county
on its triumph in 'securing a reduction
of excessive rates. The four cents which
Willi be saved on each bushel will in
one season make a large aggregate of
money left in the county. The building
of the Rattlesnake . road has been the
best investment which, at this time,
Sherman county could make, and will
prove the solution to a perplexing prob
lem, just as the building of the D. P. &
A. N. Co. steamers has solved the same
question for The Dalles, and proved its
COMMENT OF OREGON EDITORS
Pendleton East Oregonian : The locks
at the Cascades will not be completed as
promised. Promises of men engaged on
goverment works are like pie crust,
made to be broken. Work on the locks
was begun twenty years ago, and more
than one peanut politician has used it
as a cat's paw to puil political chestnuts
out of the fire.
La Grande Chronicle: There are
complaints in almost all portions of the
state that sheriffs are charging fees, as
under the old system, tor services, when
thev are not allowed by the statutes
to charge fees, except for certain special
services. And the supreme court has
sustained this statute.
Portland Argus : The statement that
business in this city has been materially
injured by the flight of people to San
Francisco, is inspired by misapprehen
sion rather than by fact. Goods can be
sold as cheap in this city as in San Fran
cisco, and people will not probably put
themselves to the trouble and expense
of packing from the latter city what
thev can secure here. People can hard
ly be blamed for taking advantage of
the low rates to visit California, al
though during their temporary absence
business lags here a little.
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

Mrs. W. B. Meek, who resides at
Camptonville. Cal., says her daughter
was for several years troubled at times
with severe cramps in the stomach, and
would be in suoh agony that it was nec
essary to call in a physician. Having
read about Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy she concluded to
try it. She found that it always gave
prompt relief. It was seldom necessary
to give the second dose. "It has not
only saved ua lots of worry and time,"
she says, "but also doctor bills. It is
my opinion that every fivmily should
have a bottle of this" remedy in the
house." For sale by Blabeley & Hough
