The rush to the Clondyke has as
sumed such proportions that with five
steamers a week leaving Pacific coast
norts for Alaska points, there is not
nearly enough room for all. A steam
er load of visionaries a day will be
the record for the next two or three
weeks. With the steamship lines un
able to carry the crowd, what will toe
rushers do when they strike the in
hospitable shores of Alaska and have
to strike out for themselves? Togo
down the Yukon boats are necessary,
and the little mill at the head of nav
"igation cannot begin to furnish the
lumber required. Those in i hurry
will have to whip saw lumber, and
this is a slow job. We venture the
assertion that one-half of those going
up tins fall will winter at some point
on the coast, or return to civilization
Most of the other half will wish they
had done so.
The dispatches j'esterday confirm
the statement that England bad siezed
the island of Palmyra, one of the
Hawaiian group, and will use it as
coaling station. The average Airier
ican citizen admires England's nerve
vhile condemning her greed and her
methods. At the same time it must
be conceded that she not only suc
ceeds, but that her methods are far
superior to ours. Here we have been
lally-gagging around trying to annex
Hawaii, which is anxious to be an
nexed. We have rolled and unrolled
ceaseless miles of red-tape, and are no
nearer the consummation of our ob
ject than we were a year ago. Eng
land takes what she wants. America
wants what she is afraid to take. It
is to be hoped that England will an
nex the whole measly islands and so
let us be quit of the matter.
the striking miners make the demands
they do. Some of the things they
complain of are: "That the company
stores at which they are compelled to
trade charge them exorbitant prices
and that dishonest weights are used."
If these charges are true, the opera
tors should be put in the penitentiar
ies, where they belong ; and that they
are true the miners one and all as
sert. The strike has been a com
mendable one in that no violence has
been used, the strikers keeping within
the law, and in consequence the sym
pathy of the entire country is with
The Alaska gold excitement in
creases daily, and all kinds ot schemes
are on foot. One which will prob
ably materialize is the building of a
railroad from some point on salt wa
ter to the navigable waters of the
Yukon. If the gold deposits will
only reach North far enongh, Greed
will build a railroad to the North
Pole while Science goes air-chasing
with its balloons.
The manufacturers of armor plate
refuse to furnish It to the. United
States for $300 a ton, though selling
the same products to Russia for $240
per ton. They think they have a
einch on the government and pur
pose using it. The government
should set a price on the plants if it
needs them and then confiscate them.
This country, with 75,000,000 peo
ple, sends its warships to the Halif.-ix
dry-dock, not because we have no
dry-docks, but for the reason that
they have been built at laces where
the water was too shallow to permit
vessels to reach them. We should
build smaller vessels.
It is barely possible that some of
the statements about the returning
miners bringing out such loads of
gold are due to vivid imaginations.
The Evening Democrat of Baker City
prints the statement that Ed Riggs of
this city went to the Yukon last year
and has arrived here with $80,000;
that his advent has stirred everybody
up and we are all anxious to go.
Now, while we seriously hope that
Riggs has his $80,000, theie has been
no evidence cf the kind here.
Neither he nor the $80,000 have been
seen here. If the balance of the stor
ies have no more solid foundation
than this, some people are going to
get badly fooled.

It is now stated that the Canadian

manded on all claims jielding over a
certain sum. This may or may not
be true; but if it is there will prob

What use is there in eating when food
does you no good in fact, when it does
you more harm than good, for such is
the case if it is not digested?
If you have a loathing for food there
is no use of forcing it down, tor it will
not be digested. You must restore the
digestive organs to their natural strength
and cause the food to be digested, when
an appetite will come, and with it a re
lish for food.
The tired, languid feeling will give
place to vigor and energy ; then you will

strong. The Shaker Digestive Cordial
as made by the Mount Lebanon Shakers
contains food already digested and is a
digester of foods as well. Its action is
prompt and its effects permanent.

edy can take its place in our home, as
in it we have certain and sure cure for
Coughs, Colds, Whooping Cough, etc."
It is idle to experiment with other rem

just as good as Dr. King's New Discov

remedy has a record of cures and besides
is guaranteed. It never fails to satisfy.
