Every exchange that comes to our
table, unless avowedly a monopoly-
organ, complains of the extortions of
those whoso position makes it possi
ble and whose principles make it
common. A free river is the best
! remedy. To have a free river it is in
reasonto begin at the junction of the
river and the sea. A united effort on
the Dart of those who voice the
people's wishes will greatly aid in
this result It is for those who do not
bow in allegiance to a one-man
power to unite in showing the need

THE NEW MODEL
Tub most important state niattor
now demanding the attention of con
gress is the improvement o the bar
at the mouth of the Columbia river.
It is a "work that requires consider
able expenditure. The necessity is
imhorsally conceded. The board of
visiting engineers in their report set
forth what is believed to be the only
adequate means of improvement
the bnildiiiR of a mole from Point
Adams in a northwesterly direction.
Dredging, or scratching is of no avail
and has been abundantly proved. Our
congressional delegation owe it to
themselves, to the state they repre
sent, and the commercial interests of
the commonwealth to make this mat
ter one ot special showing on their
part. The completion of the North-
ern Pacific railroad matres the im
provement of the bar more than ever
an imperative necessity.
Tux British lair-Trade Associa
tion has again brought up the matter
of imposing an import duty on all
American wheat entering Groat Brit
ain. It is witliin fhe limits of possi
bility that their arguments may pre
vail. The fannors of the Northwest
are already paying a high duty on
English bound wheat in the high
rates imposed on Oregon freights by
reason of the Columbia river bar.
