Tiikki is no able thinker who cannot
readily perceive a slight coloring of Incom
istency in the step the national fariner'j
alliunce has taken looking towards the
forcing of the public press Into harmonious
action with it came. That orgnniiutiim
cannot afford in thia ituge of it existence
to resort to such turgid means to accom
plish Its desired ends. If as a party It
proves itself as worthy as it purports tc be,
and '.if it will not . allow itself to he con
trolled and meuagnd by disreputable cam
paign sharks and 'designing iiolitirtans, as
have characterized every other polltlrul or
ganization, then It will find plenty of Wil

Into use the inuus it has adopted. , Hut If,
on the contrary, it will jiersist In wielding

a cumbersome and dangerous task, which
if it 'is not "successful in conquering, can
"but result in its own filial destruction.
lilt people of this country awuit with not
a little curiosity the result of the experi
ment to be made on this Christmas duy of
, the new constructed air ship, to itart from
' Mount Ca'rmcl, Illinois, 'headed for Ht.
Louis. A compony with a capital f 200,
WW at Mount Carmol are expectant that the
new invention they are bringing forth will
solve the' problem of aerial navigation.
The total 'weight of the airship is WW
pounds, while it is 170 feet long, and 78 feet
in diameter. It Is behaved that it will
travel at a speed of 200 miles an hour, and
-'at that rate, if no calamity befall it, It will
. . arrive at Ht. Jonis In 45 minutes from
the time it starts. . .
It is hoped the efforts of the iteumboat
men in behalf of securing light placed
along the Willamette hy the government,
at the points where navigation is rendered
hazardous during fogs and dark nights will
meet with the success they deserve. It is
not only greutly to the Inconvenience of
tin- navigators tlicmseves, and the risk to
which their boats are lubjeeted, hut th
traveling public Is oftentimes culled upon
to suffer the gruutest delay as a result of
there being an insufllcient number of signal
lights along the river.
