WHITMAN ONCE MORE.
This long-continued discussion is
not of general interest, most surely.
Yet to tiose (and they are not a few,
nor among the least intelligent of
our community who are interested
In state-building, anything relating
to the early period, the formative
stage of our state, is of intense inter
est. The statement that Dr. Whitman's
admirers were hunting for a hero,
Rnd having found him, they proceed
ed to "unduly exalt him," may be
said without fear of contradiction, as
it is purel)r a mattei of opinion, and
not or tact. What in one person is
grateful appreciation of services ren
dered in almost, but not quite,
unsurmountable difficulty, is charac
terized by a person of different tem
perament as "undue" exaltation.
The statement that Oregon would
have belonged to the United States
government had Dr. Whitman "never
lived, is probably uncontradiclable.
If it were not true, we could not
possibly prove that negative. Amer
ica wonld no doubt have been dis
covered if Columbus had never been
born. The editor of the Oregonian
would no doubt have lived and
thriven had he been born in Timbuc
too. As Captain Cochrane says in
Pinafore, "This kind of thing can go
on forever," and as argument or
proof it amounts to but little.
These are the facts: A number
of men, subjects of Queen Victoria,
organized to trade with Indians for
furs, were here, and their business
well in hand. It takes no great in
sight to know that however kindly
disposed, nor how humane these per
sons were, nothing was farther from
their plans or wishes than that this
land should be open for settlement
bj- United States citizens. Some
other persons, of whom the chief
presumably was another Canadian
gentleman, a native of Stansstead,
Canada East, were here with the
purpose of ameliorating the condition
of the savages. Nothing should be
said belittling in any degree, the
noble purposes of these missionaries
and their families. It was not writ
ten that their plans should be ma
tured and finished with a success that
should call the world's notice. Very
much the reverse. Some others
with a similar purpose with Dr.
Whitman and Mr. Spalding as first
comers, were located east of the
History has shown Dr. Whitman
to be a man of undoubted far-reaching
sagacity, an organizer, a builder,
a planner. A letter is now before
us written by Dr, Samuel J. Parker
of Ithaca, N. Y., the first coadjutor
of Dr. Whitman, wherein by infer
ence we can see that he considered
the location ot Dr. Whitman among
the Ca3'uses as especially unpromis
ing. Be that as it may, most surely
Dr. Whitman looked upon his work
as brief, and upon this country as
the future home of his countrymen
the home of American citizens. The
evidence is abundant that he exerted
himself to bring this about in a way
that could not be expected from any
subject of Her Majesty, and which
we have no reason to believe such
subject ever did exert himself;
though in so doing Dr. Whitman
most certainly signed his own death
If to honor the efforts and success
of this man with warm and apprecia
tive gratitude is to "unduly" exalt
me lesson oi patriotism.
The next steamer in the Oresron-
tic line will carry from Port-
10,000,000 feet of railroad ties
7,000,000 feet of stringers.
Some 1,500,000 feet of other lumber'
will be included in the cargo. The
railroad material is intended for the
road now building through Mant
cburia, in China. One of the most
encouraging features in the trade
situation in the Northwest is the con
tinued increase in business between
th8 Northwest and the Orient. In
all sort3 of products there is an in
crease in demand, and the steamer
service has been repeatedly improved
to meet the requirements of the
trade. The completion of the Grea
Northern and the wise policy of the
O. R. fe N., have done a great deal
towards bringing about this condi
tion, and it looks as if Portland will
be able to keep up the competition
with other ports and be the gainer,
as in the past. In the meantime all
enterprises with products to sell
should keep watchful for the oppor
tunities presented by trade with
China, Japan and the Orient. In
this way the seat of a great commer
cial empire will be permanently es
tablished along our northwest coast.

Deafness Cannot be Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound, or
imperfect bearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafnees is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, bearing will be destroyed for
ever ; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cared by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars; free.

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gener
ally needed when the languid, exhausted
feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid
and sluggish and the need of a tonic and
and alterative is felt. A prompt use of
this medicine has often averted long and
perhaps fatal bilious fevers. No medi
cine will act more sureiy counteracting
and freeing the system from the malar
ial poison. Headache, Indigestion, Con
stipation, Dizziness yield to Electric Bit
