A TALE OF TWO WOMEN.
There are at present two women
who are attracting the attention of
the English speaking woild Mrs.
May brick, who has been cn trial in
London for the murder of her hus
band by arsenic poison, and Mrs. Kay
Hamilton, who attempted to murder
her servant in a brutal manner. The
former married ber husband for his
money, and seeing another person up
on whom she could lavish her affec
'tion, killed the man to whom she as
wedded after being criminally intimate
with the other. Mrs. Hamilton is an
adventuress of the worst kind, and
was taken from a questionable life in
to the high circles of New York so
ciety. In order to get possession of
her husband's wealth and the jewels of
his family she imposes a bastard upon

trpatnres are Americans, livinff in this
golden age of the republic, and reared
with all the benefits of republican so-
ciety surrounding them. There are
; rarely cases of depravity which equal
these, and yet they are described as
women of beauty and accomplish
ments. It only emphasizes the fact
so often stated that the being upon
whom men lavish their holiest affec
tions in the relations of mother, wife,
and sister can reach the loftiest heights
of purity and affection or sink to the
lowest depths of vice and degradation:
Mrs. Maybrick, with other ambitions
in life than the flash and flare of or
naments and the accumulation of
wealth, might have been an honest
wife and' an exemplary mother and
member of society; but not having the
force of character to resist the glare
and glitter of money and the passport
it furnishes to every circle of society,
sacrificed every finer feeling of
- womanhood to its influence. Mrs.
Hamilton might have cultivated the
Ligher virtues of ber sex and led an
upright life if she were content with
her st a -ion and not aspired to the
higher walks of life and used every
means to accomplish her purpose.
This is a sad tale of two women "gone
wrong," which should be a constant
warning to all members of their
sex. Not that they are any worse
than many men. "who sacrifice
honor and every virtue to reach the
goal of their ambition; but in whom
the social sin is almost universally
condoned. The moral of these terri
ble examples is easily seen and under-
scooa. in contentment mere is not
only rest and quiet; but the tempta
tion to viciousness to achieve promi
nence is absolutely wanting. The
honest wife of the honest laborer is
more respected in the world of intelli-
gence to-day than the unchaste mis
tress of a prince. Diamonds and
jewels can never adorn a woman to
the extent that true virtue and the
higher elements of .lady-like character
do, and the wife of the plebian and
mother of Lis children is more ad-
mired by eyery true gentleman than
the harlots who throng the courts of
kings and emperors and barter their
chastity for gaudy gems.
The Columbia Waterway Associa
tion will hold its fifth annual session
ic the city of Portland October 10 th.
Secretary Brewster, in writing from
Vancouver, says regarding the wotk
at the mouth of the Columbia and at
the Cascade Locks:
The work upon the jetty at the
mouth of the Columbia has advanced
so far that its completion is assured.
and the result will be beyond the most
sanguine expectations of the advocates
of the jetty system. Already an in-
creasea aepui vl iuur icci uu mo uar
is apparent, and we are promised
thirty-two feet at dead low water
when the jetty is completed. .The
cbannel from Portland to Astoria has
also been permanently deepened.
The work at the Cascade Locks has
been pushed faster than ever. The

government' to investigate vaiiius

by several parties of senators and
representatives, all of whom expressed
great satisfaction with the methods L.

announced their intention of assisting
our congressional delegations to get I
suthcient sums from the next congress
to finish the works under way, instead
of continuing the present system of
By holding an enthusiastic conven
tion of representative men of tne
northwest we may emphasize the im
portance cf the early completion of
the improvements to navigation now
in progress in relation to the Colum
bia river ,and by presenting this matter
in its true light the forthcoming ses
sion of congress may do something for
-us in the shape of liberal appropria
tions. The paltry sums hitherto
given for rivers and harbors have not
been conducive to an early completion
of the projected improvements, and if
at this meeting of the association these
facts were pointed out it is to be hoped
that congress would see the neces
sity of appropriating such sums that
the engineers in charge can do effective
work. Each board of trade interested
should have statistics regarding ex
ports, rates of freight, and country in
the yicinity tributary to the riyer.
Until recently eastern men have not
known the importance of tho north
west, and the large ar?a of country
drained by the Columbia river. The
visits of the congressional delegations
during the past summer have made our
country better known, and we may
expect to realize a beneficial result in
the next River and Harbor bilL
DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED.
Notwithstanding tne partial iauure
of crops in Eastern Oregon and Wash-
ington this season, the prospects for
another year are aa bright as in any
portion of the United States. This is
the first misfortune in the shape of
drouth that has happened in the in
land empire since it has been settled
by white men over a quarter of a
century. There is no reason to be
lieve that it will again happen in the
same length of time, and no one should
be discouraged. The loss this year,
by the exercise of enterprise, can b
easily overcome, and in this way it
may act as an incentive to our re
tarded development. For jesrs, with
out any effort apparently to counter
act the influence, the tide of immigra
tion from the eastern states has been
drifting towards Eastern Washington
and the Willamette valley. If we will
use business sagacity next year we will
receive large accessions to our popu
lation from this source. Our land
are as fertile, and we have vast areas
unoccupied as any in the north west,
and home-seekers would gladly settle
ar midst if thpy knew the ad
vantages which we possess. This
knowledge should be spread broad
and ry dollar so spent will
ten in return. In this
regard we should follow the example
of our neighbors who have been reap
ing a rich harvest of immigrants while
we have lain dormant All kinds of
literature newspapers, pamphlets and
circulars, should be sent to large east
ern cities, and profusely scattered
amonsr all classes of people. Cold
winters, cyclones and blizzards, and
an over-taxed soil have forced the in
dustrious to look elsewhere for homes.
If we desire them, information of our
resources should begiven.and they will
come. On the contrary, if we do not
desire the industrious classes of Amer
icana as adjuncts to our growth, the
effort will be a waste of energy, and
contrary to the principles of economy
in all kinds of labor which we prize so
RACE WAR IN THE SOUTH.
It has been several years since the
adoption of the constitutional amend
ment giving the right of suffrage to
colored citizens, and hardly in a single
instance has it been enforced. Race
pride or race prejudice, whichever
it may be termed, is as prevalent
to-day in the South as ever, and ap-
parently there are no indications
it dying out. It was not unreasonable
to suppose that former slave-owners
would not view with any feelings of
complaisancy the changed condition of
their former chattels. But political
equality does not by any means sig
nify social equality, and simply be
cause a negro can vote is no reason
that he should be admitted on a level
with others into society. While in
the north political rights have been
granted to all white persons, of what-
ever nationality, after being natural-
'zed, this has in no instance torn down
the walls of social restriction. Emerg-
ing from a stati of slavery it was not
expected that the colored population
would be very intelligent voters for
some time; but since the war
schools have been established,
and intelligenca among them is
becoming more general Equal po-
iitical rights would not haye been
granted them except as a means of
protection, and as such it should have
effected a good purpose. But at this
late day it is useless to argue this
question. The suffrage amendment
has become a part of the constitution,
and as such it should be en
forced .the same as any other
clause in that instrument. The
states Eouth of Mason & Dixon's
line cannot restrict suffrage by reason
of "race, color or previous condition of
servitude," and if their object is to
have the white race rule at the ballot
bo lt mnst be brought about by
some other means.

There is again rumors in the dis
patches of a war between Germany
and Russia; but these rumors have
become periodical, and are expected at
stated intervals. The fact of the
matter is that neither one of these
nations is desirous of declaring war
against the other, and before there
will be any clash of arms diplomacy
must exhaust all its resources. The
science of killing men has advanced so
much within the last few years that
battles will be very destructive of
human life, even to the victorious.
Germany,with her thoroughly military
government, understands this well,
and the fact is too well known even
to the czar, with all his ambition for
acquisition of territory, for him to
madly rush into war. The extensive
preparations forjaconfl:ct which every
nation in Europe has been making for
some years past, p:aces peace on a
firmer basis and makes war more remote.
There are some fatal cases reported
in experimenting with Dr Brown-Se-quard's
elixir of life. It may answer
a useful purpose yet, and tske the
place of the fool-killer.
Malietoa has been returned to his
kingdom in Samoa, and the Geman
consul has informed him that he can
do what he likes. This grant of free
dom from the foreigner will no doubt
be appreciati d.
The trial of several persons for the
murder of Dr. Cronin has begun in
Chicago. Considerable interest will
center around these proceedings, and
the country will anxiously watch
every day's progress.
TheBrown-Sequard Hammond elixir
of life has not proved to le suc
cessful in every instance, and the old
must be content with the demonstrated
fact that they cannot live always, and
the young that they will eventually
become old and pass off the stage of

Our water commissioners are work
ing arduous to devise means by which
to furnish a water supply for the city.
Tbey have made an offer of $40,000
to The Dalles Mill and Water Co. for
their plant, and if this Js not ac
cepted will pioceed immediately with
the work. The company are not wise
if they do not accept this offer, as this
city is determined to have a water
supply at whatever cost, and if this is
not accepted the property will be
worthless in two or three years. There
is no more urgent necessity than a
water supply for The Dalles, and it is
well for all those, who are opposing it
to understand that if the commission
and council are blocked by legal tech'
nicalties, a joint-stock company will be
formed to do the work. The people
of this city are in earnest about this
matter, and will have water at what
The East Oregonian says "the Dem
ocratic party never pretended to favor
free-trade.' But they will be nearly
solid in favor of a radical reduction of
the robber, poverty-producing tariff.
-" Those who don't favor this
will not be Democrats." We would
like our esteemed cotemporary to
explain its position cn the great
economic policy, for we must Jay Gould was the first to send con
acknowledge that we are at a gratulations to Cleveland upon his
loss to determine its status. It bitter-
ly opposes protection and is in favor of
a radical reduction of the tariff, and
still is not in favor of free-trade. The
editor ha3 not used an argument in
support of his position for some time
past but what has been used by free-
traders in England, Prance. Germany
and America. If these Democratic
tariff reformers are not free-traders in
every sense of the term we do not
know where to place them.
Very prominent among the charges
made by the Democracy against the
Republican party is that it has been
the cause of the formation of the dif-
ferent "trusts" in the country, "be-
cause protection plays into the hands
of the capitalists." The most gigan-
tic trust which has ever cursed the
county has been that of the Stand-
ard Oil, pnd it has never received one
cent of protection. In the Mills bill
the offspring of Democratic free-trade
thought sugar was protected, presum-
ably for the purpose of soothing the
Bourbon planters of Louisana, and
this is another trust that cannot be re-
ferred to the Repblican party. Wool
was protected in the senate bill, be-
cause the cheap product of Australia
ana ooutu America would Kill tne in-
dustry in this country, and no trust
has resulted. These trusts are simply
the combination of capital to control
the market, and they happen regard-
ing nearly everything that is bought
and sold. They become very oppress-
ive to consumers; but the best way to
c imbat them is the plan suggested by I
Mr. Powderly to the Knights of La-
bor regarding the coffee trust. He
advised them to combine against it,
and not use tne article. Tne people
must follow the tactics of capitalists, I
and fight them with their own wea-1
pons, as far as possible. I
The platform adopted by the Wash-
ington Republicans in session at Walla
Walla is one that has the true ring to
it Protection is the key-note, and
preraeates every plank. Our friends
across the river know what they want,
and have no hesitancy in voicing their
sentiments on economic questions,
Washington just marshaling herself in
the galaxy of the union, knows that
her infant industries need encourage
ment and development, andwill array
herself on the side of that party which
offers the best protection.
Canada is anything but reasonable
in her bluster on the Behrinz sea

The strikers number nearly 200,000,
and they are determined to bring the

flict between labor and capital, which
will contiuue as long as the rich desire
to become richer, and in order to ac
complish this object will reduce wages
to the lowest price.
Chicago has entered (he luts as a can-

The clans are gathering in Walla

the most prominent a an mentioned
for governor, although Col. L S. How-

lowing. For congress John L Wilson
takes the lead, although R. O. Dunbar,
of Klickitat county, is looming into
prominence. North Yakima is head-
ing fcff Ellensburgh in the race for the
capital of the new state, and undoubt

competitor. Of course the convention

The great strike which is now in
progress in London brings plainly to
view the old conflict of labor and cap
ital. J hat capitalists should pay
workmen as little wages as possible, is
a well-known rule of business in every
country, and that labor should de-
raand as high a price as it can
receive, is also well known and
followed in every department
of industry. Heretofore the com
bination of capital has left
wage - earners at a disadvantage; but

nave formed organizations, mis is

Greenwood I found tome excitement
among the people, no as I believe, from
asy tear of bloodshed between the lace

menace of tlie negroes and their defiant

probably intensified by the fact that tl.e
negroes, or at least quite a number of
them, were armed with Winchester rifle.
Three military companies had airivid,

would do harm instead ot good. After a

THE RACE CONFLICT.
New Orleans, Sept. 4. A special
from G.-eenwood, Miss., says: ''From
present appearances it looks as thouo-h
the sud ot peace would supersede the
cloud of war. The sheriff of this couutv
returned from Winter City, the scat of
war, last evening, and reports everythino-
quiet up there.
Four of tbe ringleaders, named Adolnh
Horton, Scott Morris, M. J. Dial and
Jack Dial, were killed. Tbe excitement
among the negroes was augmented by a
report that a peaceful negro had been
killed during the night for refusing to
take up arms against the white people.
Tjpon the arrival of the troops it was
learned that a party oi about 100 neeroe!.
well armed with Winchester rifles, were
encamped near Cane Land, a distance of
six or eight miles from Miuter City. A
reconnoitenng party ol citizens number-
ng about hity men was organized and
proceeded to Interview the belligerent
blacks. After riding for some time
through a dense forest of cane and vine;.
they arrived at the place designated as
tne camp ot tne negroes, but thev had
moved to some other place. Search was
at once instituted. Ihe party, while nas-
sing through Plankton, came upon
Adolph Horton and Jack Dial, and they
weie tummauum. io surrender. Tbey
drew pistols ane started to run, when

iue other leaders were killed this
morning while resisiing arrest.
Thomas. Allen and Cromwell th
