THE STATE OF FLORIDA WRECK.
Quebec, May 12.-The bark Theresa
with the remainder of the survivors
of the State of Florida, arrived to
day and -vras taken in charge. The
afaatfhesteamezTelnsesto talk of
the accidentT Officer" Thompson is
The seamen aro less reticent than
the officers, but are unable to throw
any lighjt upon the cause of the disas
ter hating been abed when the ves
sels collided. They say they" had
small accommodations and spare
rations. Those saved from the"
Ponema are Captain Hej burn, Angela
Eosa and Thomas Nicholson. The
names of the lo3t of the Ponema are
JIEePomena was in ballast from
LSrirpoWldr Miffcmichl. The sailors
oCjtmiftate of Florida are secured
by the agent, and kept away from
newspaper men. One sailor of the
bark perished from exposure in a
boat Captain Heyburn lost every
thing. Nicholson, on the lookout at
the time of the collision, ascribes tho
fault of the disaster to the steamer.

fused assistance. She was so near
that it was impossible not to have
seen or understood the signals. All
corroborate the bravery of engineers
Bain and Anderson, and testify td the
activity of the second officer of the
State of Floi ida, who was lot.
Nkwobk, May 12. Captain Mun
roeoftihe steamer City of Rome,
stated that April 23, while passing sis.
sailing vessels, almost becalmed with
in two or three miles of each other,
a full rigged ship was observed two
or three miles distant, displaying
signals interpreted by me 'ship
wrecked crow of State' but no urgency
signal was displaj ed, or if display ed
was not seen, nor w as the name or
nationality of the ship gften. Had a
signal of distress or urgency been
seen it would have had immediate at
tention. As the day was calm, the
signal dropping it was difficult to
make out, but it would have been easy
for the vessel to put out a boat, -virion
could have intercepted the City of
Rome. Not until after arriving at
Liverpool, and hearing that a State
line steamer was overdue, d"d the in
cident become connected in my mind
with the indistinct signal, when I at
once reported my conjecture. I cer
tainly would be the last man to ne
glect the duty of every seaman to
render insistence to any one in dis
tress atHieshaving on more than one
occasiobewi indebted to others for
the prwwrvation of my own life."
Th M&ond and fourth officers on
watch Hi-fty at tho time of the signal
ing iaUjf' itaeir adherence to Mun
xoe'ifotgtdmBnt. Preaarl&g for Extensive Salmon Ship
The Northern Pacific Refrigerator
Oar company have just completed
eifhtjoars specially designed for car
rjrmcColumbia river salmon east.
HrarMtWoy, a -man of fifteen years'
efifSriSEtGrin the shipment of fish, is
oSmanwrt agent for the company
he. iAH the cars are fitted with the
"VyiBtinghouse air brake, Miller plat
formTetc., so that they can be attach
ed to regular passenger trains. A
special messenger goes with every car
sa.Ke Kxai me supply oi ice is Kept
utiitfcKthe atmosphere of the car
kept steadily at 20 degrees. None of
the shipments made by express in
boxes during the past two months
have been profitable, for the reason
that transportation charges are too
high to allow a margin of profit The
xajaltTofihe carload shipped last
Tl&tetfcm Celilo is therefore await
ed with interest. Cost of the fish
aboard the cars is about 'five cents a
pound, freight charges by the carload
aboift seven' cents. Retailed at twen
ty cerits.the salmon will yield enough
profit to justify future shipments.
Mr. Molloy showed an Oregonian
reporter a letter from E. 6. Blaok
ford, the great Fulton Market fish
mercEant; in which he stated that
thsHistflve boxes shipped from Port
land wererTeceived in absolutely per
fect order? being 'bright, clean and
aa-jjgonn, and that the process of
pu3Ji, rag-could not be improved. In
oadad lots the salmon are packed in
bocearin single layers, with ornshed
ioeutider and over them. One hun
dred boxes constitute a carload, eaoh
box containing six or seven, accord
ing to size. .Lntrails and gills are
reaftoveff'T a patent maohine, -and
thf akin 'is unbroken. The cars are
attached to passenger trains as far as
Sf. Paul; thence by fast freight to
HeT-npUK Dut tne refrigerator car
company are making arrangements
to;twd thesr on passenger schedule
&& Paul to New York, reducing
the time irom .rortiana to seven days
instead of nine days as at present
Salmon will be Shipped from Celilo,
where they are taken with fish nets;
from The Dalles and the Cascades,
where they lire taken in wheels, and
from thclower Columbia. Mr. Mol
loy says that New York is the only
city that can dispose of a carload of
salmon in one day, but parts of it go
to Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore,
and Washington. In Chioago the
lska fish come in such strong com
petition that the Columbia Tiver
salmon cannot be sold profitably.
Another carload will bo despatched
to New York in a f few days. Orego
nian. John Myers did make one strong
point in his speech here, ah! a very

The ' Cow Counties."
The Sunday .Welcome, in its critio
ism of the action or the Kepublican
state convention in making the nomi
nations that the ''cow counties" pon
trolled affairs and left Portland "out
in the cold,1' regarding candidates;
If by the derisive tenn,Meow coun
ties;" we are to understandjihaf large
section of country outside-;of" Port
land (and we believe there is a Con
siderable portion of the afea-ot Ore
gon not included in Multnomali' coun
ty), we can see no reason why they
should not have managed the-'nopn-nations
of the Kepublican convention,
as they represent the indn"rial inter
ests of the northwest.
For many years the metropolis has
appeared to" array herself in direct
antagonism to matters of great im
portance in which the sections south
and east are directly interested. "We
believe, for her own aggrandisement
and the improvement of the Colum
bia and Willamette rivers upon which
she is dependent for an outlet toi.be
sea, she has worked against other in
ternal improvements southern and
eastern Oregon greatly desire. Her
leading journal has times without
number decried the prosecution of
work at the locks and has denomi
nated their construction a useless ex
penditure of the public money. Our
people Relieve that, because of her in
fluence at the national capital through
representatives in congress who are
subservient to her interests, this work
has been retarded. In the matter of
the forfeiture of the unearned land
grants, her board of trade passed res
olutions declaring it to be the desire
of the people of the northwest that
the Northern Pacific company
should retain all tho land granted to
them, conditionally, by act of con
gress, especially making it appear that
that portion from "Wallula to Port
land was necessary for the construc
tion of a road through that section
(when the compan never intended to
to build a foot of road, and the O. E.
& N. C. had one in running operation
for many yearb). All these acts on
the part of Portland have demon
strated clearly to the minds of our
people that we can expect no help
from her for any projected enterprise
and that all congressional representa
tion from that city will be inimical to
the interests of eastern Oregon. The
grievances of southern Oregon are
not as clearly marked. "Whatever
they may be they are sufficient to
make that section wheel into line
with the country east of the Cascades
to dethrone Portland from holding
tho rtaanntin swnv over the rest of
Oregon. Dalles iHmcs-Jfovntaincer.
Color of the Campaign.
Foutyearrago, when the presidon-.
tial campaign opened with Garfield
and Hancock aa the nominees of the
respective parties there-was-a- proa-4
pecc oe a Detter rone in poiiacs. xne
canvass was to be elevated above the
mire and mud of former contests.
But that prospect did not last but a
few weeks. "Later in the season par
tisan rancor and bitterness broke out
with greater virulenoe than ever.
Garfield especially was the target for
abuse. His public record was over
hauled and charges of corruption
wen. freely made. A forged letter
was brought out later in the season
as the culmination of a conspiracy to
defeat him by foul means, since he
could not be defeated by fair means.
R.irelv has any caudidate been
through such a scathing fire of de
traction and come out so clean. Han
cock suffered loss. He had no civil
record. His military record was very
good. He had no very strong points
to assail, and no very weak ones. The
presidential crmvass in this country
is not much above the level of politi
cal debauch. There are already signs
that the old evils will break out again,
and with tho old virulence. Blame's
prospects for a nomination by the
republican party being better just
now than those of any other candi
date, he is drawing the fire of all the
political malignants. The demo
cratic candidates aro not yet under
fire because they are not, up to this
date, in the field of vision. Of course
when candidates enter the field for
the highest offices in the gift of the
people they challenge criticism as to
their qualifications, including their
puuno record, xne inaeceni wing in
our politics is construed to mean all
sorts of assaults, including the most
ingenious falsehoods whioh, can be
invented. Blaine under fire, before
it is certain that he will secure the
nomination, is an indication of the
color of the approaching canvass.
The nominee for judge of this dis
trict, Hon. F. J. Taylor, of Astoria, is
a lawjer of the very best standing at
J home, has been m practice eleven
years, is an Oregon boy, and about
thirty-six years old. We believe that
no other choice so good could have
been made in the district without
taking a muoh older lawyer. Oregon
