A CHEERFUL (t) SITVAION.
"We offer no apology for again
discussing the subject which is up
permost in the minds of our citi
zens the Cascade locks. The
theme is as distasteful so us as to any
one, yet new developments have
arisen which require at least brief
comment. Like the evidence con
structed out of circumstances, which
slowly weaves its net around the
-criminal in court, so the conviction
. as coming to many minds that the
Oregon delegation cannot escape
certain censure for the condition
which exists regarding an open
A good deal has been said and
written about the 1179,000 appro
priation contained in the sundry
civil billv and it was generally ex
v pected after the failure of the $20,
000 resolution to be of any value,
thai the $179,000 item would com
plete the necessary work. With
this thought in mind a good many
people were surprised to read in Sat
urday's dispatches that Senator Mc
Bride had introduced a measure to
"be incorporated in the river and har-
"bor bill appropriating $50,000, of
which sum $20,000 is to build the
'. oft-mentioned inner walls, the re
mainder to construct another lock,
for what purpose the accommodating
senator does not say ; but presuma
bly to give some one a job. These
two conditions were at first irrecon
cilable, and are so yet, save on a hy
pothesis that a vast deal of chicanery
and humb.uggery - has been going
The truth of the matter . is, un
doubtedly, that the $179,000 appro
priation merely goes to reimburse
the Days as money claimed to be
earned. Jt will be remembered that
by the terms of the contract ten per
cent of the value of the work done
was to be held back by the govern
ment till the contract was completed.
The work provided for in the con
tract is now considered done. It
will be remembered also that the
engineers told members of the com
mittee from The Dalles that some
work had been done in advance by
the contractors, for which they ex
pected reimbursement from the gov
ernment. In other words, a vast
deal of excavation had been made,
which was both unnecessary and
aided in exhausting the funds, which
if rightly managed, would have
bailt two concerns like the one at
Cascades. That the extra excava
tion could have been done without
the connivance of the engineers is
With the $179,000 going to the
Days, then, to reimburse them for
work done and champagne drank,
upon what do the people depend for
the completion of the locks?. Sim
ply upon the $50,000 measure in
troduced by Senator . McBnde, and
how delusive such hopes may be
can be seen when it is considered
that the provision has yet to pass the
senate; must then go to the house
for passage or defeat, and worse yet,
the moncj' will not be available un
til a new contract will have been
let, properly advertised, bonds given
and approved all of which will
take the greater part of a year or
It is, moreover, a matter of haz
ard whether the $50,000 measure
will run the gauntlet of congress.
The . senators and representatives
may very justly say they are" tired
of passing measuies for the Cascade
locks. Someone may arise and ask
"What is the matter with those peo
ple out there? One day they want
$20,000 in the form of a resolution.
We give it to them. Then they
asked $179,000 m the sundry civil
bill. We give it to them.v Now
they want $50,000 more. They
must think congress hasn't anything
else to do but vote money for the
Cascade locks. They make . me
tired ! Why didn't the Oregon dele
gation tack on the $50,000 to the
$179,000 in the sundry civil bill,
make ii $229,000 and call it quits?"
We wouldn't blame any congress
man for uttering sentiments su;h is
So then, we are entirely depend
ant upon McBride's $50,000 bill, and
the chances of its passing are doubt
ful. If it should be successful, there
is a deal of red tape yet to be gone
thiough, and during the twelve
months that may roll around, the
locks will deteriorate and the $50,
000 be needed to repair damages.
In the light of all this, bow ex
quisitely . ridiculous appear the tele
grams that came flashing over the
wire telling of the $20,000 resolution
having passed and how the locks
were rushing headlong to; quick
completion. - .
Juvenal "could never pen satire
stronger than that contained in the
emanations from some of our dele
gation. Of what marvellous patience
are the people composed ? Most
uncomplaining asses, we" trudge
along, taking every blow with a
smile and kissing , the hand that
strikes us. Is there another nation
on the face of the earth where such
an outrage would be permitted ? . If
there is, the Days and the engineers
can kneel in their beds at night and
thank God they are living in free
and enlightened : America, where the
rights of the people . are paramount
to all things.
In the fall of 1893 a son of Mr. T. A.
McFarland, a prominent merchant ' of
Live Oak, Sutter county, Calif., was
taken with, a very heavy .cold. The
pains in bis chest were bo seyere that he
had spasms and was threatened with
pneumonia. His father gave him sev
eral large doses of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, which broke up the cough and
cured him. Mr. McFarland says when
ever his children have croup he invari
ably gives them Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy and it always cures them. He
considers it the best cough remedy in
the market. ' For. sale by Blakeley &
