A Region of Lakes-Nature's Great Specific
Bow Multitudes are Healed The Med
ical Lakes of the Spokan
Nature sometimes tries her hand at healing
the ills that flesh is heir to and puts to shame
the pretensions of science. In the northeast
ern portion of Washington Territory, north ot
the Northern Pacific Railroad, ten miles from
Cheney and fifteen miles from Spokan Fall', is
the village of Medical Lake, situated on tli'e
lake so called, which is a mile and a I a 1 f long
and half a mile wide. This lake has become
so famous in the present, and has so much
promise for the future, that we can atlord to
give a description of the lake region in wnich
it is located.
This region was called "Four Lakes," but
M really the country is a succession of lakes and
'II ponds all about there. There are five consid-
ernhln lakes. ranoinfT frnm Mia ta fhr-pA milpn

with it, and not half a mile distant, that has
no distinct name. Though so near, it has a
higher 'elevation. Beside these chief lakes,
which occupy a region not over five miles
square, there are numerous small bodies of
water; this is true of the scab lands in all that
vicinity, which consist of lava beds and lakes
bedded in rocky shores. There is pine timber
through all this rocky lake region; some mead
ow spots can also be found all through, and
the rocks frequently have soil enough to jield
d grass. Just at the village of Medical
ke the White Bluff prairie comes down to
;he lake, and the town site is really attractive.
11 the lake shores afford beautiful camping
ilaces, and when the lake region develops
into a Northwestern Saratoga, these lovely
shores will be built up with charming villas.
But, now, we must tell of the great natural
advantages that give Medical Lake such re

Some years ago a Frenchman, named Le-
evre, tendeel sheep on the shores of Medicil
ake. He suffered tortures from rheumatism;
for years had carried one shriveled arm in a
Wing, or tied to his breast, and being unable
do other work, tended his sheep. In some
anner he exposed his arm to like water,
lither in washing sheep for scab, which the
lake water w ill cure, or else he lay down on
ot days where his arm met with the lake
ater. His rheumatism decidedly improved,
'or some cause, and thinking it was lake water
t did it he applied it regularly, and soon
ad the shriveled arm restored to plumpness,
d was cured of all pain. He lives there

gThere are three of the five lakes that are
tapfegtuted with these salts. Medical lake
r seems to have them in proper solution
to roost readily available, The lake adjoin
ing it on the west is said to also possess them,
of about half the strength, while Granito lake,
nearer Cheney, the largest of the three, pos
sesses them of double thn strength of Medical
lake water. No doubt, all these lakes have
medical properties, and will be used for that
purpose. Granite lake is said to he too strong,
but Mr. I. A. Staughton, formerly of Salem,
told how his 'rife, whose health seemed de
stroyed and whose system had become thor
oughly prostrated and her mind despondent,
after spending a summer at Granite ljke and
using the water, became restored perfectly in
health and spirits. Ho has an excellent farm
on the prairie, near by, and expresses the
'utmost confidence in the virtues of the water
from all theie lakes.
At Medical lake there are now two small
hotels, and alarger rneisin course of erection.
Pers ns who can go there and camp out will
find it pleasant to do so, or if the hotels are
full they may be able to board at farm house.
A commodious bath house is in operation at
the lake, with eight baths, charced for hot or
cold water, no soap needed. These baths are
in charge of our friend, Mr. William Russell,
formerly of Milton, Umatilla county, a very
excellent man for the place, who has had
some acquaintance with water-cure establish
ments. These baths are a luxury, and we
certainly have never enjoyed any bath as wo
did the bath tub at Medical 'lake. Those who
wish to go into the lake can obtain suits, and
have the benefit of a mile length to swim in,
and swimming is an easy art in this dense
For the benefit of those who cannot'go to
the lako, a company has formed and invested
uearlv 5,000 in putting up evaporating
works. The Medical Lake Powder Company
is evaporating this lake water and making
salts, as they do at salt springs m Michigan
and elsewhere. They put it up in packages
that are sold for 5Q cents, $1 and $2, with full
instructions for its use. Whero druggists do
not keep it for sale, those who wish to try iU
efficacy can remit the pnce3 named direct to
the company and receive packages by mail.
Tw o years ago we wrote up the advantages
of Medical Lake and the effects of this water,
from testimony of persons we me. Now,
having been there we feel more confident still
of its good qualties, and write the matter-up
for the benefit of afflicted pertons who may
wish to go to the lake in person. That, of
course, is best to do, but many who cannot do
that, even back in the older States, can send

RAILROAD LEGISLATION TN ILLINOIS.
In these days when erections of corpora
tions attract so much attention it is interest
ing to watch the history of railroad workings,
and an interesting sketch of railroad history
in Illinois is found in a late issue of the New
York Post, which we condense as follows :
The Railroad Commission of Illinois has
now tor ten years had full authority and
power to solve the "transportation problem"
in that State,
at was estaunsnea ror me pur-
pose of giving "utability and uniformity to
transportation rates; toencourage the develop
ment of the railway interests of the State,
and, at the same time, to prevent monopolies
and excessive or discriminating charges.' To
-ucv- i.uroc uujcvio vcty rauicai experiment
in legislation was tried. For the common
rule of law that the rates fixed by the rail
roads are reasonable unless shippers can show
the contrary, there was substituted a new
rule making the rates fixed bv the Commission
prima facie r-uisonable and throwing on the
railroads the burden ot proving that they
were net. By this the railroads are compelled
either to accept tho schedules of the Com
mission or else to resort to costly litigation in
which they have to fact hostile juries and un
dertake an almost impossible task.
The establishment of a Commission with
such powers as these was consequently ex
pected to lead to a terrific struggle betw een
me rauroaas and me puouc, represented by
the Commission. But the great battle over
the rates never came off, because, although a
low sceedule was established, natural causes
about the same time came into operation
which tended to make rates low of themselves.
The schedule was established in 1873, but it
prescribed, oi course, maximum rates, and
owing to the changes produced by the panic
of that year, it turned out not that they bore
too heavily on the roads, but that they were
too high. As the Secretary of the Commission
says in an unofficial letter to the Chronicle, of
this city, "none of them pretended to observe
the rates fixed by the schedule of 1873, nearly
all of them charging on an average much lower
rates on all leading articles." That this was
owing to natural causes is shown by the gen
eral decline in rates on the leading railroads
of tha country. In 1805. for instance, the
average rate per ton per mile on the Pennsyl
vania Road was 2 66, in 1881 it was 88-10
mills; on tho Krie, in 1SG5, it was 2.70
cents, in 1SS1, 8 mills; Lake Shore. 2.00
ce.iU in ISC5, G 2-10 mills in 18S1; Michigan
Central, 3.00 cents in 1805, 7 2-10 mill in
1881; New York Central, 2.48 cents in 18CS,
7 8-10 mills in 1SS1; Watash, 1.40 cent in
1S73, 8 0-10 mills in 1880.
Down to last year, therefore, it ! itiffionlf
to see that the Illinois Commission had any
actual effect in lowering the rates of trans
portation. The schedule of 1873 remained in
force, but it was a dead letter, because it was

too high. According to tho letter already
quoted, the same thing has happened in other
Western States which have attempted to fix
rates by law. In Missouri and Wisconsin the
rates fixed by law "never have been charged
or received by railroads, but altogether lower
Why the Illinois Commission war not satis
fied with this state of affairs does not appear.
But last year they came to the conclusion that
something ought to be done, and when they
did gc to work, thoy went to work with a
will. First, they established a new schedule
nearly thirty per cent, lower thau that of
1S73; and, not contcut with this, about a
month ago they revised tho classification of
this new schedule on somo thirty per cent of
the whole list. The general result of all the
changes, according to the Commissioners' re
port, is that "the rates fixed by the revised
schedules, for both frieght and passengers,
are materially lower than in any other Wes
This Sudden development of activity, how
ever, seems to please neither the railroads nor
the farmers. The railroad managers maintain
that freights cannot be carried profitably at
the reduced rates, and threaten, if they are
enforced, to cut down the wages of their em
ployees. They insist, too, that the reduction
is not equitable, but that the Commissioners
have manipulated the rates so as to securo
political support, favoring among others the
brewing interest, which in Illinois, as else
where seems to be deep in "politics."
A leading organ oi the farmers, on tho other
hand, wants to know why rates should bo
"cheaper in Illinois thau in other Western
States? Are there railways cnouch in Illi
nois ? If it was a good thing that railways
should be huilt when a large part of the State
was a wilderness of grass, and the revenue
from one of which is said to havo cleared Illi
nois of debt if good then, why not now ?
Probably thoso who have no near railway
facilities will think they should ha.e some of
this good thing, to bring them up to tho same
plane upon which those stand who have rail
way facilities." The Chicago Tribune of Juno
3d says :
"From sources which may be deemed re
liable the information is derived that tho far
mers of Illinois are becoming more and more
convinced. that the tariff rates adopted by th
Board of Railroad Commissioners, instead of
being a benefit to the agricultural clas.es, aro
a positive detriment. Many products of tho
faun which appear upon the tariff schedule
are so rated as to work a hardship both to the
producer and consumer, while from the pecu
liar construction of the tariff the railroad
companies cm transport the same products
into Illinois from other States at a greater
profit to themselves and a profit to con
The outcry against tho railroads that pro
duccd the Illinois system of supervision was
duo to a belief th.it railroad charges were
fixed arbitrarily by the transportation com
panies, and of curso fixed too hiuh ; that.
consequently, the way to remedy this was to
have them fixed by somebody else who would
repreent the nioduscr, and fixed low. Tho
history of the experiment, howevir, shows
tltat there aro causes which determine rates
over which no arbitrary influence can be ex
erted, and that for eight years in the State
which introduced the new system tho rates
have been fixed by them, and fixed lower thau
the body organized by the State for the pur
pose of making them low, fixed them. The
consequence is that the Commission, which
was originally created to save tho State from
the railroads, is now itself looked upon with
suspicion as being engaged in confusing a
matter which it does not understand, and per
haps influenced by political motives in doing
so. The attempt to divest railroads alto
gether of control over the rates of transpor
tation that is, practically over their business
and to vest it exclusively in a Commission
iur tills wm wimb uiu jmuui taw um will,
in the end, satisfy no one, and only bring the
hw and the Commission into disfavor. This
is all the more to be regretted as a sitisfac
tory "solution of the railroad problem," as
far as it can be brought about by outside in
terference with the business management of
the roads, seems to bo most attainable through
the instrumentality of an independent and
impartial tribunal such as a Railroad Com
mission is intended to be. Verf satisfactory
results have been accomplished by the Rail
road Commission in Massachusetts and on a
till larger scilo by the Railroad Commission
in England, which, while preventing undue
discriminations, and compelling the roads
directly and indirectly to afford proper facili
ties, never attempted to fix schedule.! of rates.
tsut in these instances great raro was taken
to compose the Commission of men who ros
sessed a large knowledge of the subject and
treated each question submitted them upon
its own proper merits. Ignorance and inca
pacity and the mixing up of politics with the
business of the Commission would have made
the latter a failure in Massachusetts and in
kngland as well as in Illinois.

Mr. Blasdel, of Oakland, Cal., who is an ex
perienced miner, or rather may be called a
mining expert, on whose judgment men ot
means stand ready to invest their money in
mines, has recently been in the Cascades, on
the headwaters of the Santiam, and says he
saw some excellent locations on benches in
the mountains, that can be easily converted
into farms. The thousands who come hither
from tho West arc apt to outlook the advan
tages of loeating near the Willamette Valley,
in tho foothill region, and go cist of tho
mountains in preference But gradually the
people of this valley are prospecting and locat
ing homesteads beyond the present line of
settlements. Tho Oregon and California Rail
road Com, any has a grant of the odd sections
within forty miles of the road, and as tho
country becomes better known their lands
find a market.

created such excitement in 1E04, to make an
examination of it with view to its purchase.
If it shows a body of pay ore, cipitalists will

looked on as very rich, and a great deal of
money was expended running tunni-ls, build

operated for quite awhile, without any satis
factory results. Rich pockets wero emptied,
but no solid body of pay ore was ever worked.
