We the undersigned committee, be

the packers held m Astoria, Oregon,
on March 13, 1883, for the purpose of
corresponding with the packers absent
on that occasion, take this mode of so
doing and have to request your co
operation on the following subjects:
1st. To organize a "Pac'-era Pro
tective Onion" on the river with a
view to harmonize amongst ourselves
and to adopt. from time to time, such
measures a3 may advance our iutore3ts
and have a tendency to give mutual
aid to each other.
2nd. To adopt means to asml a
representative from the packers on
this river, to Europe the coming tea
son, in order to protect our interests
and look after the inspection of salm
on in Liverpool and London, and co
operate with other gentlemen now in
England on the same mission.
3rd. To adopt measures of so strin
gent and effective a character as to
protect U3 from the cutting and steal
ing of nets, etc.
4th. To instruct the public in the
difference between Columbia river
and Sacramento river salmon, as num
bers of Sacramento river packers use
the name Columbia or Columbia river,

The Red Bluff People's Cause saj's:
"While in conversation a few days
since with Gen. Caihvaldur,wt learned
some important facts connected witli
the Oregon division of the Central
PaciGc railroad from Redding to the
northern boundary of the state. Tho
company is massing men, animals,
tools, machinery, etc, on the line of
the extension as rapidly as it is possi
ble at this time. A few daj-s since a
number of tho officers of the company
went up and took a bird's eye view of
the route and found everything in
splendid shape, and ready for active
operation as soon as a force of men
can be put to work. As soon as the
company completes its work on the
Southern Pacific, the whole force will
be put to work on tho Oregon extension-
This will be about the middle
of April. The General says it is the
intention of the company to complete
the work this year if possible; if men
and money, drive and push will ac
complish the undertaking, it will be
done. Villard, no doubt, intends to
try and reach the Southern Oregon
boundary at the earliest possible day,
and the Central Pacific people are de
termined to meet him there.
The steamer Wide West left Portland
at 5:30 yesterday morning and blew
her whistle in front of the dock at this
place at 12:15 v. m. It was purely an
experimental trip. For some time
past the grate bars in this and other
of the O. R. & It. river steamers have
been under change for the purpose of
hereafter burning coal, and yester
day's run was for the purpose of see
ing how the boat behaved herself.
The result was in every way satisfac
tory. Among those on board were F.
T. Dodge, superintendent river divis
ion; John Gates, chief engineer river
division; and D. P. Keene, secretary
for C. H. Prescott. Captain Bab
bidgo brought her down. Further
improvement in speed is expected
when the boat goes on the route under
tho new time table, a time which is
as yet undetermined. The Wide

A WOMAM'S EXPERIENCE.
What a Lady of Great Prominence
Has to Say About Her Bez.
On a recent trip by a representative
of this paper to the city of Haverhill,
Mass., a most important incident oc
curred, which cannot fail to be of tho
greatest interest to all, and especially to
our lady readers. Tho newspaper man
met a lady a trifle past middle age with
luxurious white hair that contrasted
strikingly with piercing black eyes.
Shelpossessed a straight, full habit, wom
anlv but commanding, combined with
manners wholly lady-like, and yet pro
nounced. Any acute judge of human,
nature could see at once that he was In
the presence of an unusual personage
one destined to accomplish more than
most of her sex, and to exert aii influ
ence far reaching In its power. This
lady was Mrs. M. Y. Wlngate. Almost
from childhood she has taken a special
interest in the bodily troubles of her
sex and has probably been more suc
cessful in relieving suffering and saving
lives than any other woman in America.
Indeed, she seems to have been to
women what Florence Nightingale and
Dorothv Dix were to the suffering sol
diers. 'Ihe instances of women who
were in the greatest agony ana appar
mitiv bevond ttie reach of human aid.
that she has restored to health and hap
piness, are almost innumerable, ana it
was only natural mat niu scniw suuuiu
become specially inteicsted and wish
to converse with her more in detail.
4,Ilow long have you been engaged in
the practice of medicine Mrs. Win
"For more than 25 years."
"A long time certainly. How did you
happen to enter the field at that early
dav when women In the professions
we're specially frowned down upon V
1 think I must have inherited a taste
from my father, Professor J. C. Wood,
of Harvard college. He was eminent in
tho profession, a hard worker and
enualiv earnest in his recreations. He
hunted considerably and I remember
when only nine years old 1 used to dis
sect the Dims ana animaisneuau Kiueu.
I felt infatuated with medical science,
even then and the infatuation has con
tinued up to the present time.
"And did you oegin your studies so
early in life V
"l can hardly say when 1 began, fori
cannot remember when I did not read
medical literature. You would scarcely
believe It, but I was a slender girl aud
did not weigh over 120 pounds but I
used to sit up night after night until 2
o'clock in the morning poring over my
studies and never dreaming of the flight
ottime. It seemed as though calls for
my attendance on the sick always came
unsolicited. I certainly cannot fix the
date when I first began jiracticing. Of
course most of my patients were women,
and the natural sympathy I felt for ray
sex has increasea during all these years
where I have been brought so closely in
contact with them and have learned to
anticipate their needs and sympathize
with their sufferings. After the open
ing of the Boston Medical College 1 ap
peared before the faculty; passed exam
ination and received a diploma. I had
practiced for years previous to that time
but thought it desirable to receive an
other diploma, which I did without any
-Your experience with the many and
serious diseases of women having been
so extensive must also be valuable?
Can you give me some facts regarding
"I find that woman seems born to suf
fering, and where she avoids it, it is by
reason of some care on her part or owing
to some special renewing power. It is
true some women go through life with
out unusual suffering, but they are none
the less in danger, for there are critical
periods all alone their pathway when
the utmost precaution is required. The
innumerable complaints called female
weaknesses; the irregularities of life
and changes of the system all indicate
the perils which hang over every wom
an's career, and which, unless attended
to, may result disastrously.77
"But is there no way by which the
terrible troubles can be avoided r
"That has been the problem for years.
The habits of life and the demands of
fashion are clearly at war with the
health of women. I have been, perhaps,
unusually successful in my treatment
of their troubles, but there have been
many cases that seemed specially stub
born. I recall one in particular. I had
exhausted all the usual expedients and
the results were uot satisfactory. I be
came worried over the case and really
did not know what to do, but finally
thought 1 would try something out of
the usual line. I had heard u certain
remedy recommended very highly and
sol procured some and made a chemi
cal analysis of it. I found it was per
fectly pure, and that the ingredients
were unusually valuable. So 1 began
giving it to my patient, changing it.
however, into a bottle of my own. To
my great joy it seemed to have an al
most immediate effect and a complete
cure was the result. Since then I have
used it constantly in my practice and
have cured every form of female weak
ness, as well as displacements, dropsical
tumors, cellular dropsy and all such
troubles. 1 have also used it with the
best of results in cases of pregnancy and
gestation. Indeed I have found it of
untold value and benefit.'
"Have you any objection to giving mo

Kidney and Liver Cure."
"Why, that is a proprietary medi
"Certainly, but what of that? 1 have
but one end m view in the treatment of
my patients namely their restoration
to health. In the accomplishment of
this end I prescribe what 1 believe to be
beneficial, no matter what the profes

"I notice in the Xcw York papers that
Doctors Hammond, Agnew and other
prominent physicians arc taking a sim

"Yes and all independent thinkers in
the profession are bound to do so. I am,
however, on the best of terms with un
professional brethren as you can see,"
and the lady produced a beautiful gold
medal mounted in the form of a badge
which had been presented her by the
medical society, known as the Ensign of
the Humble 1-amily, of which she is a
prominent member. After examining
it closely, the reporter remarked that
the medical profession evidently were
proud of what she had done, as she
might well be in the possession of such
"I am proud of that," she replied, '-and
I was also pleased a short time since to
receive an offer at a large salary to take
the professorship in the new medical
college at Walla Walla, on the Pacific
coast. I do not know how thev heard
of me out there, but I was obliged to
decline their offer.
"And so in your experience with the
diseases of women, you have found suc
cess, and that Warners Safe Cure has
been a most efficient remedy."
"Yes, I have had unusual success and
the remedy of which you speak has
been proven of great benefit. There
are. however, some base imitations of it
to be found in the market; these are
bad and should be avoided, but the gen
