The gratifying intelligence came yes-
terday that Senator Mitchell had con-
ferred with the war department regard
ing the amount needed to complete the
Cascade locks, or make them ready for
operation, and would introduce an emer
gency measure, adding thiB amount to
the general appropriation bill. This
action of Senator Mitchell is decidedly
opportune, and no part of his offic'e'
career will be followed with closer inter
est than his efforts toward securing th
appropriation deemed necessary Defor
it e lonka can he onerated.
,Thathepese"nt occasion should not
have arisen, is generally conceded. The
engineers have been working on the
plans for years and had ample time to
consider every detail incident to a work
even of this magnitude. No one con
nected with the locks lias ever been hur
ried and the fact that such an egregrious
blunder has been made cannot well be
explained upon the hypothesis of pon
The people of Eastern Oregon have
ljeen put "in a hole" from which Sena
tor Mitchell is making efforts to extri
cate them. If he succeed no act he
could perform would have more effect in
entitling him to the gratitude and sup
port of this section. Mr. Mitchell baa
been credited with possessing influence
equal to any member of the senate, and
with knowing how to secure the passage
of a measure when he desires it. He
never had a better opportunity to show
his worth than .at this juncture, when
tbe eyes of the people are t urned upon
liim. If this emergency Measure pass,
it would be well if some means conld be
adopted to secure tbe wise use of the
money and a guarantee given that this
appropriation would finish the work,
and the men in charge not have the op
portunity of saying again "The locks
cannot De operated till we get more
WHERE POLITICIANS THRIVE.
The people of Portland cannot com
plain of uninteresting politics. The de
velopments of the .past few days have
strengthened the belief, generally held,
that the coming local campaign will be
one of the very warmest ever held in
Multnomah county. The Oreeonian of
yesterday comes out in a double-leaded
article, slating that it is time for the
people to . understand what is going on,
and seek measures to down the friends
of Senator Mitchell, whom the Orego
nian declares are using that gentleman's
name as a mantle to hide their own self
seeking. Multnomah county is suffering from
too much politics. The interests of the
taxpayers are made of less account than
the ambitions of the men who make
politics a trade ; but the course of the
Oregonian will have little or no effect in
bettering the' situation. To sing Joe
Simon's praises, while running down
his enemies, has too much the sound of
self-interest to be commendable to in
telligent voters. One trouble with Port
land is that it has been bossed too long
by Joe Simon and the crowd whose idol
he is. : Politics have reached such a low
ebb that any change will be for the bet
ter. An attempt to cry down the men
who are fighting Simon because of that
reason, cannot hope for success. A new
deal is needed all around, and Simon, as
well aa the obnoxious men in tbe other
camp, should ; be relegated to the back
ground and the people given a chance.
Tbe entrance into politics of every high
minded and honest citizen would Boon
break the rale of tbe bosses.
It seems almost incredible that the
vast sums which have been appropriated
for the construction of tbe locks have
been so epent that the appropriation is
exhausted and the work unfinished. If
the government engineers and the brace
of contractors had treated. the people
with the same fairness that congress
has, boats would now be passing through
the canal. If the men who are ranning
tbe thing, or rather failing to run it,
could be deposed for a time, enough
money and men could be gathered to go
down . and plaster those unprotected
sides with rocks so that the banks
wouldn't wash away. It would be
most unfortunate if the government en
gineers who have been at the locks from
time to time, would lose their positions,
for it is doubtful if they could, get em
ployment elsewhere when it was known
that they drew plans which, when the
work was done according to tbe specifi
cations, bad made it so tLat the canal
could not be operated.
. The senatorial situation in Kentucky
has become critical, and probably today
or tomorrow . will see someone selected.
Although the step is not one which can
always be taken with commendation,
yet if the election of a Republican proves
impossible, rather than see a deadlock
and the state but balf represented, or
a Populist chosen, we hope the Bound
money men in both parties will unite
upon Carlisle. If a Democrat must go,
no man within that party can be chosen
who will suit the country better than
'.Carlisle. Besides, he will soon be out
of a job, and after tbe next election the
Republican majority in the senate will
be so large that Carlisle's vote for free
trade will avail nothing.
The Klickitat Republican comes out
. favor of Levi Morton for the presi
dency. It remains to be proven what
particular superiority Morton possesses
over the other gentlemen who are seek
ing this honor. He would make a better
esiJeut undoubtedly than any Demo
crat that could be named because he be
lieves in the restoration of a wise pro
tective policy and the maintenance of a
strong financial system, but there are
other Republican leaders whose services
entitle them to this recognition far more
than Morton's. We hope our neighbor
ing paper will not raise its hopes too
high, as they are doomed to a certain
