Gen. James B. Weaver entertained a
large number of people at Pendleton
last week. During the oourse of bis
speech the Geuernl said: "You are

world. What kind of a market have you?
A competitive one? It has been truth'
fully said that 'no man lives unto him
self.' We raise a surplus of wheat some
thing like 100,000,000 bushels, but not if
we had all the bread we wanted to eat,
Our wheat comes in competition with the
India wheat, whioh is raised by slaves,
who get 8 oentsperday. These people
live on oracked wheat and rice, are clad
poorly and sleep on the floor. This
wheat ooines in competition with high
priced labor. You sell everything in
competition with all products of the
world. But it is not at all m selling.
When it oomes to buying we do not find
a low and competitive market, but a
pooled and high market. You buy your
reapers and twine from trusts. You take
your wheat to mills, where you reoeive
prioes that are fixed by trusts. When
you buy gummed goods, you pay the oil
cloth trust a royalty : oil. the Standard
Oil Co.; sugar, the sugar trust. Every
thing you use on your table and in your
house which you do not produoe you buy
of trusts. The cradle is made of lumber
controlled by trusts. And so it goes from
youth to old age, and when the old man
passes away he is laid In a collin purchas
ed of trusts. And still the gentlemen
have tbe oheok to tell us to go home and
work harder and not talk about these
things. We must cut out or destroy these
corporations. God never oreated a cor

the benefit of men, not corporations,

In the Nick of Time.
The nick of time to stop the oourse of
bladder and kidney oomplaints is when
the organs oonoerned exhibit a tendency
to grow inactive. The healthful impulse
toward activity that they receive from
llostetter's Stomacn Hitters rescues
them from impending danger, and averts
such dangerous maladies as Urigut's
disease and diabetes. Sluggishness or
the kidnevs increases a liability to
chronic rheumatism, gout and dropsy,
and since the blood is filtered by these
organs in its passage through them, the
oneration of tbe enters serves a aoomy
hnnnv nurnose. xne medicine acts
witiiout exciting, like the fiery stimulants
of commerce. Malarial, dyspeptic, oon

onchlv relieved hv it. Since the advenl
of that shocking malady, la grippe, it has
been widely demonstrating its useful
ness as a certain preventive of it.

A General Description of a Trip
Over the Northern Pacific.
ACOMA AND SEATTLE VERY DULL
Some Fine Scenery, Elegaiit Railway Service
and a Happy Man.
To the Gazette: As stated on my de
parture, would let yon know something
about the trip over that most excellent
route, the Northern Pacific. Though it
is some time ago it is better now than
never, so here goes.
After leaving the busy life of Portland
we go into the quiet of the surrounding
country, which just begins to show signs
of the approaohing season. Fruit trees
are beginning to blossom and leaf, and
many wild flowers are in bloom. Along
we roll with to our right the sturdy Wil-1
lamette, up and down which may be seen
plying river steamors. Tbe oountry
round is varied, some parts presenting
plowed fields, others orchards, still oth
ers rough looking tracts, of what were
onoe large forests, now only showing
tumps of fallen and burnt trees. Before
dark we arrive at the Columbia river
where the train is transferred to the fer
ry, whioh then proceeds to take us aoross
the river and we are in Kalama.
After traveling in darkness for awhile
we arrive at Tacoma where we find the
ground covered with snow, though not
enough to last more than till morning.
After a ohange of oars we go to Seattle,
whiob is certainly a good looking city,
though at tbe present time a little dull,
Stores of all descriptions are put in to
exoel all the old stands; in oonsequenoe
of this the stores are very pretty, as also
the buildings are handsome and substan
tial. Two days after my arrival here I de
parted for Tacoma. After leaving Seat
tle we arrive at Kent, seemingly un en
terprising but small city. The oountry
round is prominent for its large and well
equipped hop fields.
Now we pass an abandoned coal mine.
This was started by men with insufficient
capital and before their mine began to
pay they had to abandon it for the lack
After passing a few shingle mills aud
the like, with all the small stations along
the line, I find myself agalu in Taooma.
This time I stopped a few hours and
must say that at train time was very well
satisfied. Drove from the depot to the
Tacoma hotel. This takes me through
the principal business street, but from
appearances of said boulevard, oonld not
imagine what it was till some one told
me. Did not oount, but imagine we
passed nearly thirty people in nearly a
mile's drive, and they seemed not to be
very anxious to buy. Business seems to
be at a standstill.
Entered one store oooupied by a drug
gist on one aide and a jeweler on the oth
er. The druggist asked what he oould
do for me. Of course I was only looking
around; he left, but then came the jew
eler; be was nut going to let things pass
in that way, be was going to make a sale.
Much in the style of a street fakir, he
said, "Look here, can't I sell you some
thing in my line?" His faoe wore such
a pleading look, but having no particular
use for a new watch, ohain or ring, I
oould not invest. The only real lively
time I had in this place was at the hotel.
You know I had .a small dog with me
and I was about to deliver him to the
porter for safe keeping and feeding, when
the dog took a fit. As is the oase when
a dog is so affected, he ran blindly into
counters and chairs, and yelled at the
same time. Being near dinner time th
waiting room at the hotel was quite well
filled with guests. The first man who
saw the dog in his ohase, jumped on top
of bis chair, and oried out, "mad dog !"
All hut two of the people present, in an
instant followed suit bv getting on top
of chairs and settees and even some on
the counter. The confusion did not,
however, last very long, for with the as
sistance of one of the strangers I suc
ceeded in oapturing my mad dog, and
after applications of oold water and a
bowl of bread and milk, be was quietly
placed in the cellar.
Eleven forty-five p. m., and again I
board the train and being sleepy, imme
diately retire. On awaking next morn
ing fiind we have just passed through
Ellensburgb. Around here tbe oountry
is quite monotonous, showing only vaat
plains, with hardly anything to break
the sameneBS, bat hero and there some
sage-brush and a little grass. From
North Yakima, the next station, to Pros
ser, Wash., the railroad follows tbe Yak
ima river olosely aud this lends a little
more beauty to the surroandingH. From
here to P&soo Junotion things are about
the same, hardly anything but sand grow
ing there, and that thrives. After pass
ing tbe junction and neanng Sprague the
oountry seems to improve and vegetation
is more in order. The oountry improves
in beauty until we arrive at Spokane.
Tbe first thing which came to my notice
here was tbe lire department, and look
ing aronnd found a pretty residence
bnrning. Tbe same element, fire, seems
still to play sad havoc with tbe place.
Spokane has improved wonderfully since
last I saw her. Where then stood tents,
aud in some pieces foundations for build
ings, now stand solid blocks of stone and
brick, ranging from four to seven and
eight stories high. Riverside avenue,
the principal business street, is certainly
a handsome thoroughfare, and any oity
might well be proud of one like it. Bus
iness is not as good there now as it might
be, but is looking upward. Complaint
in that direction is not as heavy as at
Seattle or Tacoma.
Will not dwell to say anything about
the Spokane river at the falls, the beau
ty and value as well as grandeur of which
are as well known to the Gazette's read
ers as to myself, After leaving Spokane,
half an hour's ride brings us to the bound
ary line of Washington and Idaho. The
surrounding country is more hilly and
varied. Soon we draw in sight of Lake
Pend d'Oreille, with ita hilly and thickly
wooded banks. The moonlight over the
beautiful soene mukes it all tbe more
grand. Soon after we go from Idaho
into Montana. Here winter still seems
to reign supreme. Now we cross Clark's
Fork of the Columbia river, bordered by
mountainous banks, whioh seem like
soeotres in tbe moonlight, with tlieir
white robes of snow. After a night's
rest we awake in tbe morning to find our
selves inwhnt is called Priokly Pear valley.
Up to the present it has been nearly all
up hill work and we have only a few
more miles to olimb to reach the Mullau
tunnel, about the highest altitude on the
line, 5518 feet above sea level.
Before the tunnel was oompleted the
road was ovar the mountain, the top of
whioh, summit of Mullan Pass, is 5873
feet tibove sea. In this vicinity we oross
the Missouri river, ns also the Gallatin
After trnveling through the tunnel we
make our way down the mountains again,
pass through Helena and soou we come
to Livingston, Montana. Here I made
another stop. The town is situated in
the valley between the Rocky mountains
on tbe west and the Crrizy mountains on
the east. The town is situated at the
first orossing of the Yellowstone river,
the home of such trout as we read about.
Livingston is said to he quite lively in
summer, as tourists must stop there on
their way to the National Park. It was
too quiet to suit me, so I went ou. One
thing rather peculiar in this place was to
see Bn old man strolling over the hills
with his pets. One was a large dog while
by his side was a good mountain
lion. They make rather novel pets, but
I imagine not entirely safe, though this
one would mind him at a word. Again
we start, and now in a more mountainous
country, the best cattle oountry in the
i Early next mornbg'we arrive at Miles
City, Mont., located on the Yellowstone
at the mouth of tbe Tongue river. Short
ly after passing here we oome into the
"bad lands" or "no man's land." Here we
see hardly any vegetation but grass, only
occasionally along creeks you will see
some low shrubs. These lands are not
plains, but are quite rough, being oover
ed with little hills or mounds, oone
shaped or in shape ot beehives, and of
all imaginable colors. Sometimes you
aee tbe cones in strata ot all colors, pre
senting a beautiful appearance, almost
as though some artist bad boen at work
with bis brush and paints. Aftor travel
ing for miles and seeing nothing but the
same thing over again it is quite fatiguing.
We soon oome into Dakota, whero things
grow still less interesting. As far as yon
oan Bee are plains, aud nothing else only,
occasionally o wind-break near the track.
Shortly before reselling Mandun we oome
to Fort Hebron, which Is n settlor's fort,
built by them a few years ago, at the
time of tbe Indian scare, but luckily was
never brought into use.
Now nt Mandan we chnnge time and it
is an hour later than it was five minutes
ago. Within a short distnnoe south of
here is Fort Abraham Lincoln. It was
from here Custer started for the Little
Big Horn and was killed by Indians. At
Mandan we found Bevoral U. S. Indian
police. They are armed with a star, cart
ridge belt and revolver. They are said
to be of great assistance in that section.
Going eastward we again cross the Mis
souri rivor und after a lapse of some
time we croHS the Red river und arrive
The country hero is more varied, pre
senting here and there cultivated fields
small orclinnlB and then perhaps a piece
oi limner, we now can see tuo Missis
sippi river, whioh we follow closely till
we reach Ht. Paul. So here wo are, and
having made the rest of tho trip by night
I shall not try to Bay more.
TheNorthern l'acilic service is magnifi
cent, excellent beds, line meals, and
everything in fact that goes to make the
tourist happy. I shall remain in this vi
oinity till after Minneapolis oonvention.

Highest of all in Leavening Power.-
Editor Gazette :
I Bee in today's paper that some party
who signs himself "Voter," is under the
impression that a lady oannot run for the
office of school superintendent. It ap
pears to me that "Voter" would probably
like to get there himself, else why should
he lower the dignity ot man to attack a
woman. Just as he says, Miaa Voruz is
a yery estimable lady and well qualified
to fill the position. Now I wonld like to
ask "Voter" what ho would oall a legal
voter. If he will refer to page 32, sec.
43, of the school laws of Oregon, he will
find that any citizen of this state shall be
entitled to vote at a school meeting, who
is 21 years ot age nod has resided in the
district 30 days preceding the meeting,
etc., eto. Therefore I contend that Miss
Voruz is a legal voter, as she fills all
these qualifications, also that there aro
