FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1901.
A NARROW-SIGHTED POLICY.
Mr. C. H. Mclsaac, of the
lanufacturers' Association of
Portland, speaks different views
in regard to establishing manu
facturing plants in Portland than
ever before advanced by Portland
people. In speaking of the pro
ject to move the Dallas Woolen
Mill to Portland, Mr. Mclsaac
says: "Portland cannot afford
to arouse local feeling and local
opposition by taking away fac
tories and industries from interior
towns. We want to build up the'
manufacturing industries of Port
land, but we do not want to do it at
the expense of other towns, in which
trade we are benefited. Every
mill and industry in operation in
the state is an indirect benefit to
Portland, and we do not want to
absorbthem, but create new ones.
Dallas will feel the loss of the
mill while it would do Portland
Mr. Mclsaac is correct, but the
great mouth-piece, speaking for
Portland, takes an opposite view
and has always worked to drag
everything from the interior
towns to Portland. A few years
ago citizens of a valley town sub-
Scribed and paid out about all of
ther available cash to establish a
carriage factory in their midst. It
was only a short time until ru
mors were current that people
in Portland were encouraging its
removal to Portland. A constant
endeavor by Portland interests to
encourage industries in the
smaller towns to become weary of
their location, is certainly a short
sighted way to build up a great
state. It everything is drawn
from the country towns to Port
land decay would soon be ob-
served to effect Portland, because
the country would net have vital
ity to contribute to its support.
The transportation facilities at
one time passing through Ya
quina bay saved several times to
the farmers of Oregon the cost of
governmeit improvements, and
these savings were spent through
Portland. Had the million-dollar
appropriation by congress
been spent for the completion of
the harbor improvement at Ya
quina the amount -would have
been saved by the farmers of Or
egon in two years; and yet
through the opposition of Port
land's short-sighted people the
Yaquina bay improvement was
killed upon the false report of the
government engineers to the ef
fect that the "trade throngh Ya
quina bay had fallen off so
further improvement of that
was not needed."
True in fact, but false in
it and in truth. For at the
the Alaska trade sprang up,
mg all the steamers at larger
rates than any local trade could
justify paying, the ware houses
at Yaquina bay and all the freight
cars along the side-tracks of the
railroad company were filled and
remained so for some months,
awaiting shipment through Ya
quina bay. But owing to the
continued failure of steamship fa
cilities, the great quantity of
freight accumulated was shipped
back through the way it came in,
and in this way the trade fell off,
not by any fault of the route, but
for want of steamship facilities to
move the freight away.
The populist state central com
mittee of Oregon held an inquest
over the remains of their party at
Salem, Friday. The occasion
-was a sweetly solemn one; not a
drum was heard, not a funeral
note. Will R. King, of. Mal
heur, chairman; J. A. Jeffery
and G. W. Weeks, of Salem;
Ernest -Kroner, of Portland; F.
Williams, of ""Ashland; Silas B.
Smith, of Astoria, -and William
Hammer, of Albany, performed
the last sad rites. Chairman
King presented his resignation,
and after considerable discussion,
the agreement to dissolve the
State central committee became
unanimous, and the dissolution
of the committee was officially
accomplished. Thus do we be
-hold the truth of the old adage:
'The good die" young."

Editor Couvaixis Gazette:
session, of congress
seems certain. It is alracst as
certain that such special session
will baan advantage to the dem
ocratic -p.irtv m the next cam-'
paign. There is a very strong'
opposition anion:,' the republic
cans i i co.-igress to t'ie proposed
special session. It has been pub- '
licly stated that the president '.
desires congress to share with !
him the responsibility of the !
Cuban question, and that such J
desire will induce him to con-
vene congress in March or April, i
Since the Cuban constitu- !
tiotial convention has delayed
action arid has taken its time in I
promulgating the constitution,
republicans in both houses ef ,
congress declare that Cuba cau I
wait until next winter's session :
to have its proposed constitution !
considered. They also say that ;
if the subsidy bill is taken up in
the extra session, the democrats
will press the point that the
Cuban matter was only a blind,
aud a special session of congress
has been called simply for the
purpose of appropriating millions
of dollars to the rich shipping in
terests of the country.
The principal reports of the
twelfth census are required by
law to be published by the first
of July, 1902. There is little
reason to doubt that the work
will be completed on time. The
population department is now
practically through with it3 tab
ulations, and scores of clerks are
constantly being dismissed or
transferred td other departments.
There will be material reduc
tions in the entire force within a
few months, and by the first of
the year the censns office will
probably be represented by four
or five hundred clerks.
Oregonians in Washington are
watching with a decided interest
the course of the legislature in
electing, or rather in not elect
ing, the United States senator.
Their desires naturally differ
according to their political asso
ciations, .and their predictions ts
to the final outcome vary with
their desires. A few prefer that
there should be no election; in
which event, Senator Simon will
be the dictator of federal patrou-
Representative Tongue has
been having some "lively times
with the other members from the
West, recently. Mr. Tongue is
chairman of the arid lands and
irrigation committee, and mem
bers from the arid states believe
that he is their chief obstacle in
securing irrigation legislation.
Mr. Tongue, while fully recog
nizing the importance and "the
benefits of arid land reclamation,
has a good eye fo the fitness of
things; and, doubtless, is oppos
ing and will oppose any further
additions to the immense' appro
priations which have already
been made by this congress.
The Newlands bill provides that
the money received from the
sale of public lands in the arid
section shall be used for building
reservoirs and canals. While
this is not a direct appropriation,
and Is perhaps an equitable
measure, it means the withhold
ing from the treasury of several
million of dollars. Some such
measure will, doubtless, pass at
the next regular session, but it is
Hot deemed advisable to open up
anew outlet for public money,
and an outlet which will, event
ually, mean the expenditure of
millions upon millions of dol
lars, at this session which already
has enough to answer for. The
Irrigators are very well organ
ized, and it is said that they
have determined on a newspaper
attack apon Mr. Tongue, with
the avowed object f forcing him
to retire from chairmanship . of
the committee.. As Mr, Ton
gue's management of the com
mittee is in pesfect accord wish
the plans of Speaker Henderson,
and as Mr. HendersOn will be
rc-eleeted speaker, their efforts,
If attempted, are almost certain
to prove unsuccessful. One
irrigation lobbiest perpetrated a
pun on the names of our delega
tion in the lower house. Ha
said : ' 'The irrigators are Moody
because they are given too much
Tongue." Senator Simon is
chairmaa of a similar committee
in the senate, but the battle has
not raged there so fiercely.
Maud Hoffman appears in
Washington next, week, as lead
ing lady with E. S. Willard, the
English actor. Miss Hoffman
has received more favorable no
tice during her New York en
gagement, than the star himself,
and according to the newspapers,
has ranked among the few rtally
favorites. H. I Holgate

Before purehasinir a piano or organ
there are a few questions it is well to
consider. First: Is the instrument mad
to use or simply to sell ? Second : Is
the the tone, action and finish first class?
Third: Is the price reasonable ? Cheap
Instruments are expensive at any price.
Why? Because they never give satis
faction, being constructed of the cheap
est material hastily thrown together.
To secure the ralne of your money there
is one certain way. Buy an instrument
which has cot only an established repu
tation for years, but which has kept up
with every improvement of modern
times. If you then would like such an
instrumeut with a tone, action and fin
ish unsurpassed, I have them, and can
lurnisn you any at the lowest price.
