They say : "Give us 'old-time Repub

something to do, and with ample em

Mr. J. W. Lauderbach of Stevenson,
who was in the city yesterday, stated
that there were about 80, miners in the

pay does not run high, but as a rule
miners can easily pan out from $1.50 to
$2 per day. Tbe way. in is over a very
high aiouutain, inaccessible in winter,
and arrangements are already being
made by miners to get enough provision
stored by this summer to run them
through the winter months. Once in the
mining district the altitude is little great

no cessation of labor on account of the
season. There is abundance of water

been arrested today on complaint of
Georgie Smith for larceny of ft watch by
bailee. According to the story told
Jailer FitzGerald ,by defendant the fair
Georgie had been arrested and brought
before Recorder Phelps and fined $10.
Failing to pay the money she was given
five days in jail. After serving out half
the sentence she became tired of res
traint and gave her watch to Tennant to
pawn. He got $6 on it, paid tbe $5 to
the recorder thus setting her at liberty,
and blew in the dollar remaining.'. Now
she instigates the arrest. Whether this
story will be entitled to as much con
sideration as the remarkable saddle ex
perience remains to be seen.
A S6400 Cleanup.
Walter Brown was in Long Creek a
few days since, having just completed
cleaning up at bis placer mine at the
Black Butte mines. His cleannp was a
neat sized gold brick amounting to $6400,
and while not as large as he expected,
yet it is sufficient to enable him to de
clare a dividend of $500 to each of the
seven shareholders - of tbe mine. The
Dunlap placer mine, of which Mr.
Brown bas had,contr6l for the past two
years, has ranked among Grant county's
best gold producers, and is good to hold
such a record for several seasons yet.

Portland Jobbers Belittle the Inland
Empire and Create Ad rem
A party of Indiana tonristsj business
men and their wives.cameup on theReg
ulator last night. With them were a mer
chant of The Dalles and his wife, whom
we will call Mr. and Mrs Jones, as they
do not desire publicity in the matter.
They became acquainted with them on
the way ud from the locks, and the story
of their acquaintance is worth telling. .
Mrs. Jones happened to be sitting near
them in the ladies cabin, when' the con-,
versation turned upon the locks. The
gentlemen were telling their wives all
about them with that peculiar satisfac
tion every man feels when he thinks be
is imparting valuable and exclusive in
formation to his better half. The woman,
noticing the grand walls of masonry and
other evidences of the great work at the
lock 8, had inquired of their " husbands
concerning their utility. .
"Those locks are a fraud," said the
gentleman addressed with all the confi
dence born of a complete information.
"They have been building over twenty
years. The reason they have not been
completed- long years ago is because they
are of no use when they are built.
There is nothing to ship when they are
completed. It was just a political
scheme in the first place to' furnish, jobs
to pay political debts. Tbe country
which they command is nothing, but a
barren waste just a stock range, not
very good for that. . The only part of
Oregon worth anything is tbe Willam
ette valley country and its outlet is
Mrs. Jones could not help overbearing
these remarks, and looking in the face
of the lady addressed noticed the look of
commiseration gradually assuming ex
pression thereon. The fearful misrep
resentation troubled Mrs. Jones and she
spoke to her husband about it. He
made up his mind to remedy the im
pression, if possible. Before he got j
inrouga ne discovered that the tourist
was merely reproducing the sentiments'!
and misstatements of some Portland
jobbers, and in this way they are influ
encing the sentiment of tbe East against
the locks and Eastern Oregon. The
spirit is one of blind selfishness. Most
of tbe Portland business men imagine
that when tbe locks are opened they
will lose the trade of Eastern Oregon,
and in conjunction with the railroad in
terests will do as they have done, retard
the work at the locks by every means in
: Before these particular ' tourists had
finished with Mr. Jones, however, they
were made aware of their false esti
mate, and hereafter they will champion
the cause of the Inland Empire when
ever they hear it assailed. The gentle
man had concluded his talk with the
ladies and was taking a kodak picture of
one of the beautiful scenic points of in
terest on tbe Columbia which even
Portland business men are powerless to
disparage. Mr. Jones found him a very
pleasant gentleman and they had' sev
eral mutual friends in Indiana, which
had a tendency to promote tbe best
of feeling. Mr. Jones found an early
opportunity to take up tbe question of
the locks and their importance as a
commercial factor in our development.
He impressed upon him the magnitude
of our annual wool and grain interests,
our immense -stock interests, the large
number of carloads of fruit which leaves
every season for the north and middle
west, and the fishing , interests, which
employ hundreds of men every year;
that the wool shipments alone amounted
last year to between six and seven mil
lion pounds, and that this year they
would be increased by a million more.
The tourist was impressed with tbe
truth of Mr.' Jones' statements, and be
ing invited to tbe house, be was shown
enough documentary evidence of the re
sources ot our country to everlastingly
remove the veil of misinformation
placed before bis eyes by certain Port
land jobbers. That Portland has antag
onized the construction "of ; the locks
with all the power she could command,
has long been known, but it is not often
that the particular way in winch she
does it comes to light, as in this in
stance. . They do not talk in this man
ner to our oven people who go down
Perhaps tbe younger generation
would give us tbe trueet index of how
tbe country will vote. It may be sup
posed they will have the same leanings
as their fathers from hearing them talk.
A Btore in tbe city has McKinley caps,
also the Bryan article. Both cost tbe
same, invariably 15 cents, and both are
handsome' and .well ' made.., Tbe Mc
Kinley and Hobart cap is in "gold"
trimmings with tbe names of tbe candi
dates in bold letters, and the Bryan and
Sewall caps have silver trimmings in the
same style. Asking one of the little
fellows, who more a McKinley cap, how
they were selling, he replied that about
thirty boys bad the McKinley cap,
while about four had the Bryan head
gear. This is probably about the fatio
their papas would vote.
