through which a channel must be
opened with the dredger. Tbe new

Gentlemen We, vour special com
mittee on Cascade Locks, beg to submit
tbe following report: -r.--
By an interview with Capt. Fiak, had
on the 17th inst., it was ascertained that
the work at Cascade Locks, is-'nearing
completion, and that that officer has
made application to the propef authori
ties for permission tcVopen and work the
locks as soon as possible after comple
tion. . And it is also ascertained that
whei the opening is announced it will
be for continuous use. . . .
Alsp that' the boats will be locked
through without charge, that item of
expense being provided for in the sun-.
dry civil bill.
Also that Capt. Fisk i providing
blanks and necessary papers for the of
ficers of boats to make report of daily
traffic throngh the locks and. will issue
notice "to the various transportation
lines to arrange their papers for trans
portation on the upper river, as by law
The exact day of opening has not been
set, but we have reasonable assurance
that it will be between tbe 1st and 15th
of November, and that in all probabili
ties we will have only a few days' notice
of time of opening.
We would therefore recommend if
agreeable with your views, that a gener
al meeting of the club be called to ar
range a program for the proper celebra
tion of this important event. ' .Respect

HOW OREGON STANDS. -
given last spring for Myers, while from
the Populist ranks, substantial gains for
honest -money and protection are also as
sured. In the second district, Mr. Mc
Kinley will receive a handsome majority.
While it is admitted that Baker, Unioni
Malheur and Wallowa counties, with
possibly Morrow, will give majorities for
Bryan, the excess of. votes will be so
small as to be comfortably swallowed up
by the majorities given, to the Repub
lican,ticket in Clatsop, Colombia, Lake,
Wasco, Crook, Grant and Harney conn-
! ties. " v
In Wallowa count' a noticeable change
of opinion is apparent. It is strongly
claimed that Bryan's majority there will
be less than that given Wade, who run
for state senator againet McCully last
June. If so, the majority for the Popu
list candidate will be less than 10Q, and
the Bryan supporters do not dispute the
correctness of such figures.
In Baker county the Democrats now
are content to claim the county by 300.
One month aeo their figures were 800.
Farmer Geer will be there this week,
and by the time he gets through his
campaign. Baker county may be put
down as doubtful. .
In Umatilla county a very vigorous
campaign is going on. State Senator
Price thinks the'result will be about a
stand-off, with a chance for a slight Mc
Kinley majority. In this county there
is a sounds-money Democratic organiza
tion, over 300 strong, not one of whom
will cast a vote for Bryan. Some few
will vote for Palmer, but the great ma
jority will pot their ballots where they
will do tbe most good, and therefore
vote for McKinley. -
In Morrow county the situation is ex
tremely uncertain. The best advices
from ' there eay that it is likely to go
twenty-five .plurality either way, with
the chances "in favor ot : Bryan. Id
Crook, Wasco, Grant and Gilliam coun
ties there is no question of McKinley
gaining tbe day, while Sherman is con
sidered doubtfu1. '. Allowing 'every claim
made by the Populists, the counties
constituting the second district, outside
of Multnomah, give abundant promise
of a plurality for McKinley. Oregonian.
A Canvass of tbe State Shows McKinley
In the Iead.
A conservative estimate made by lead
ing Republicans, who have taken care to
carefully analyze the political situation
in Oregon, leads to the result first, that
the Repnblican electors will . carry the
state, and, second, the plurality to be
gained will be represented by the major
ity given to McKinley and Hobart in
Multnomah county. '
There has been a careful canvass made
of the entire state, not in a haphazed
way, and the returns indicate that Mc
Kinley will receive a far larger vote in
the first congressional district than was
given to Thomas H. Tongue, elected' to
represent that district. The' sound
money Democrats who will not vote for
Bryan will totally annihilate the votes
