EASTERN OFFICE 230 to 234 Temple
Court, N. Y. City. E. KATZ, Agent.
If the next legislature is as eco
nomical as the people seem to desire
it to be, there will be but few clerks
and when it adjourns there will be
no more commissioners left. The
railroad commission will probably be
the first to go, and it is possible the
term of the supreme court at Pendle
ton may be discontinued. It was
only established there by the legisla
ture to dodge the requirements of
the constitution and pay the supreme
judges $1,500 per year more than the
salary allowed them under the con
stitution. The decision of the su
preme court that all state institutions
must be located at Salem may possi
bly apply to the supreme court.
Only three more days in which to
decide upon just what to swear off
on. It is one of the features of the
season that something must be
sworn off, and soon after sworn on
again. The eld pipe that has doDe
such yeoman service will be laid away
for two or three days, or perhaps a
week, but it need not .flatter itself
that it is to retire from business. Its
wreaths of smoke will soon be seen
again, and the Samsonian fragrance
of its bowl will perfume the air long
before the cherry blooms - get their
work in. Its the same way with
other things, for good resolutions are
easy to make, and much more easy
Rivera seems to- be a worthy suc
cessor to Maceo, his first engage
ment with the Spaniards resulting in
a decisive victory. From . present
indications the war will be prolonged
indefinitely, or at least until Spain
exhausts her resources, or this coun
try intervenes. Spain, it is said,
will offer a settlement on the basis of
giving Cuba autonomy, allowing her
to elect her own congress, Spain still
appointing the captain general. This
offer a year ago might have been ac
cepted, but it is not likely it will
meet with favor among Cubans now.
With them it is all or nothing:.
It is really too bad that such open
weather as we are having is beinr
allowed to pass by without a dia
mond drill being on its way down to
our coal beds. Let us get a move
on and see' what can be found.
With The Dalles at the head of nav
igation, and with a good vein or
two of coal, no city on the coast
would compare with her. She is
way yonder ahead of most ot them
now, but with good coal mines she
would be "out of sight."
General Weyler says that "when
the Cubans begin to come in and
surrender in large crowds, then the
balance will soon come in and sur
render all at once. If the cap
tain general had not given so much
publicity to the fact that surrender
meant torture and murder, he might
have done something with the non
combatants. Most people, though,
. would as soon take their chance of
being hanged as to surrender and be
Skamania county possesses some
very valuable mines, or at least the
people down at Stevenson think so.
There was quite an excitement last
fall over the discovery of gold-bear
ing quartz, an excitement that has
not died out yet, but which contin
ues in spite of snow, rain and cold
We hope our friends down that way
will not be disappointed, but wo must
confess to a lack of f faith in Cascade
mountain quartz claims.
There is an epidemic of buglary in
Portland, said epidemic commencing
about the time the gang had burgled
its way across thefjstate from Cali
fornia. It is not probable the bold
gang will go around Eastern tDregon,
it being much more probable it will
go . through it. In time of peace
prepare for war, and in times like
these prepare for a visit from the
bold burglar. "
The commander of one of Uncle
Sam's warships is credited with the
following declaration : "If the United
States government will give me per
mission to turn loose on Havana,
there won't be anything but Spanish
spoken in hell in the next two
The people of some parts of New
Jersey, as well as those of the United
States, 1 are ardent Cuban sympa
thizers, and recently TVeyler was
hanged in effigy.
On a Sturgeon Book.
Walter Klindt met with an accident
while sturgeon fishing this morning,
that he can congratulate himself on not
being more serious. He was hauling in
his lines, on whieh were' several large
sturgeon, when 'he slipped and tell.
One of the big hooks caught in the mus
cles of his leg, just about the bottom of
his pocket and was palled its fall depth
into the fleeh. With great presence of
mind he seized a butcher knife lying
handy, and cut the book from the line.
He came to town today about noon, and
Dr. Logan pinched the eye off the hook
and pulled it around and through the
flesh point forenoet.
