"THE QUESTION BEFORE
' In another column is published a val
uable communication from Fossil. It is
written by a gentleman well known in
this city, and bia name is withheld only
' because we are 'not authorized to pub
lish it. The suggestions are most
The eitnation analyzed is this: Far
to 'the south of us in Gilliam county a
large section is asking that it be given
trading facilities with The Dalles. This
section is one of the richest in Eastern
Oregon. Its stock interests are large;
its farming lands extensive and fertile ;
its basinees men prosperous and enter
prising. Owing to better facilities in
the way of roads, the trade from the
Fossil country has been going to the
railroad at Arlington, and beyond some
consignments in the wool season, The
Dalles has received but little.
The competitive transportation rates
t obtained by this city have given it a
business prestige similar to that it pos
sessed in the days when no other town
existed to dispute its supremacy, and
the fame of The Dalles as a commercial
center has gone far and wide, over the
mountains and through the valleys of
The people of the interior wish to
trade with us. Our interests are identi
cal. At The Dalles the wool men can
receive a higher price for their fleeces ;
the merchants can buy their goods at
wholesale rates as low as given in Port
land. The only thing that remains to
tar complete commercial adjustment be
tween The Dalles and the adjacent coun
try is the lack of good roads. This need
must be remedied at once. The imper
ative mood alone can be used.
The proposal of the Gilliam county
people is fair. They offer to build and
maintain a road to the John Day, and
ask that this city see that the connec
tions on this side are made, and a bridge
built near the' mouth of 30-Mile creek.
Instead of our begging the people to
trade with us, they offer to do eo them
selves, only aeking that a fair show be
It is idle repetition to say that The
Dalles must put forth every effort to in
crease its trade area. Our merchants
have bought larger stocks than ever be
fore. New buildings are being built to
accommodate increased demands. It is
in anticipation of an increased trade
that our business men have bought eo
heavily, and that increase mast come.
The goods we have purchased must be
Eold. To carry them over means loss.
No method can be neglected which will
bring a single purchaser to this city.
.And now another consideration. How
shall the request of the Gilliam county
people be considered? The means are
ours. The Commercial Club was organ
ized to handle matters like this. Men
put their money into this organization
because it was held out to them that the
advance of the city would be the main
consideration. In a meeting of business
men this matter could be discussed and
steps taken to build the road to the John
Day and give to the people of Gilliam
county what they ask, eecuring in re
turn their patronage.
The Commercial Club was organized
for a purpose, and it Is now time that
this purpose should be subserved. We
think it but a reasonable suggestion
that a meeting be called at once and tha
matter of the Gilliam county road b
discussed. A committee can be ap
pointed who can confer with representa
tives at the other end and full Informa
tion be secured. A good road to Fossil
with telephone facilities will bring to
Union and Court.
The Dalles a rich and growing trade:
Gentlemen, the question is before the
house. What are you going to do about
Mr. Ellis, we are waiting to hear how
you are getting along in the house of
representatives with that $20,000 meas

ing convention is not far distant, and
your supporters have need of all pjssi
ble arguments in your behalf. The
speedy passage of this relief measure
will be your strongest recemmendatiop.

A bill has been reported favorably. in
the house providing for the election of
senators by a direct vote of the people.
There is no probability of it passing this
session, but a certain amount of agita
tion is necessary before any reform can
be enacted. A change in the mode of
electing senators is demanded by the
people, the legislative squabbles of dif
ferent states the last two years giving
new impetus to the movement.

Daisy ! Daisy ! give me your promise true.
I'm half crazy over the love of you.
It won't be a stylish marriage;
I can't afford a carriage.

As always, Mays & Crowe have taken
the lead, and are the first to add to their

the time to double up. See the corner

TIIE BUSINESS MAN'S LUNCH.
Hard Work and Indigestion go
Hand in Hand.
Concentrated thought, continued in, robs
the stomach of necessary blood, and this is
also true of hard physical labor.
: When a five horse-power engine is made
to do ten horse-power work something is
going to break. Very often the hard
worked man coming from the field or the
office will "bolt" his food in a few min
utes which will take hours to digest. Then
too, many foods are about as useful in the
stomach as a keg of nails would be in a
fire under a boiler. The ill-used stomach
refuses to do its work without the proper
stimulus which it gets from the blood and
nerves. The nerves are weak and " ready
to break," because they do not get the
nourishment they require from: the blood,
finally the ill-used brain is morbidly wide
awake when the overworked man at
tempts to find rest-in bed. .
The application of common sense in the
treatment of the stomach and the whole
system brings to . the busy man the full en-
i" oyment of life and healthy digestion when
le takes Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets to
relieve a bilious stomach or after a too
hearty meal, and Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery to purify, enrich and
vitalize the blood. The " Pellets " are tiny
sugar-coated pills made of highly concen
trated vegetable ingredients which relieve
the stomach of all offending matters easily
and thoroughly.- They need only be taken
for a short time to cure the biliousness,
constipation and slothfulness, or torpor, of
the liver ; then the " Medical Discovery
should be taken in teaspoonful doses to in
crease the blood and enrich it It has a
peculiar effect upon the lining membranes
of the stomach and bowels, toning up and
strengthening them for all time. The
whole system feels the effect of the pure
blood coursing through the body and the
nerves are vitalized and strengthened, not
deadened, or put to sleep, as the . so-called
celery compounds and nerve mixtures do
but refreshed and fed on the food they
need for health. . If you suffer from indi
gestion, dyspepsia, nervousness, and any
of the ills which come from impure blood
and disordered stomach, you can cure
yourielf with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery which can be obtained at any
drug store in the country.
