THE CHINESE BILL PASSED BY
GOOD ADVICE TO DEMOCRATS-
CHRISTIANCY GIVES WAY TO
LET ZAQH CHANDLER IN.
Washington, Jan. 28. The bill to
change the names of the Geo. W. El
der and City of Chester to Portland
and Columbia, has passed the house of
Deadwood, Dakota, Jan. 27. A
destructive prairie lire yesterday swept
over the valley twenty miles north of
this place, burning 500 tons of hay,
and leveling several ranches to the
ground. A heavy gale of wind; pre
vailed, doing much damage in unroof-
' ing houses, uprooting trees and blow
ing down fences.
Fort Lincoln, Jan. 27. Runners
from Sitting Bull have arrived, bear
ing a distinct proposition from the
chief to return and surrender his guns
and ponies. He says that his people
are hungry and cold, and his spirit is
Boston, Jan. 28. The Woodbury
planing machine patent case, in litiga
tion for, over thirty years, was brought
to a conclusion to-day, Judge Lowell
deciding that the patent could not be
sustained. The patent covered nearly
all the planing machines in the United
States, and was valued at from 30,
000,000 to 40,000,000.
New York, Jan. 28. Chinese resi
dents here are celebrating their new
year. Tom Lee, their head man,
agent for the six companies of San
Francisco, gave a dinner to some
American friends Sunday at his resi
dence. He is wealthy and has an
American wife and a piano.
Washington, Jan 28. The house
of representatives, by a vote of 155
against 72, has passed the bill to res
trict Chinese immigration precisely as
reported from the committee on edu
cation and labor, and the bill now goes
to the senate.
The Washington Post, organ of de
mocracy, urges the democratic party
to abandon all other issues and plant
itself squarely in favor of establishing
the supremac'- of the United States on
Senator Christiancy has reconsidered
and has notified the president that he
will accept, the Peru mission salary,
$10,000 and resign as United States
senator from Michigan. Chandler will
doubtless succeed him.
.KThere is a quiet courtesy and
modest unobtrusiveness about a wise
advertisement that create a certain res
ponsive feeling of sympathy m the
reader. We all like to be solicited, and
it is natural to suppose that he who
most politely, clearly and persistently
solicits us, stands the better chance for
our trade. The familiar advertisements
of local papers often cover these points
with reat tact and ingenuity.

HELL GATE STILL CLOSED-SOME
IDEA OF THE GORGE.
DOUBTFUL "WHEN THE UPPER
COLUMBIA WILL OPEN.
HALL HOLDING HIS OWN
HEAVY SUIT FOR SALVAGE.
Dalles City, Jan. 28. Late re
ports from Hell Gate, a few miles
above Celilo, indicate greater quantity
of ice at that place than before for
many years. Early in the freeze up
the .ice gorged there and as great
masses of floating ice came down from
above it continued to lodge so that
now it is over twenty feet thick above
the ordinary level of the water and
probably as much below. This mass
extends across the river and freezes
harder every night. It is now thought
that this ice gorge will not give for
several weeks, unless warmer weather
should prevail along the head waters
of the river and raise the stream
materially. The Columbia is also
solidly blocked by a similar gorge at
and below Long island, which lies a
few miles this side of Umatilla.
San Francisco. Jan. 28. A dis
patch from Hongkong states that Hall,
defaulting clerk of the London and
San Francisco bank, who was arrested
by the British authorities in that
city, has been released from custody,
as they could not hold him under the
treaty between the United States and
England. A large amount of money
was found in Hall's possession but
the dispatch does not say what was
done with it.
One of the tug-boat owners, who
assisted to get the Old Ironsides off
the rocks, has brought an action in the
British admiralty court to recover
1,500 salvage from the United States
Chamber of Commerce of Astoria.

It is a fact long since established,
says the Helena Herald, that the mer
chant who liberally patronizes the ad
vertising columns of the press, sells his
wares cheaper than the one whose name
is seldom or ever seen. The reason is
patent, lor by thus advertising, his sales
r?ipHled,and a less proportionate
profit makes him the greatest gainer.
