THE NATIONAL BOAKH OF TRADE.
It UnaniaioLfe'y Adopts n llfro'ntlon Ail
vNinsImpravcmcaiof the Columbia.
"Washington, Jan. 30. -"When the
national board or trade resumed its
session to-day, a proposition from the
Portland board of trade reciliuff the
necessity for the improvement of the
Colnmbla, vras'takeu up, and Senator
Do'ph offered the follewing:
Rixolccd. That the necessities of
commerce demand speedy removal of
obstructions to navigation in the Co
lumbia river, andwc recommend con
gress that sufficient appropriations
be made to secure completion of the
improvements already commenced
upon the river and the bar, at the
earliest practicable lime consistent
with an economical expenditure of
Senator Dolpb proceeded to set
forth the importance of the proj.Ksed
improvement to the northwest The
improvements of the Columbia river
should not be charged to Oregon. It
was not a local project, but a plan
for rendering navigable a river that
drained 200,000 square miles. The
valuable products exported from its
valley aggregated 615,870,000 last
Mr. Dunham seconded the resolu
tion. He said it would be well if the
board could convince members of
congress that the people were not in
sympathy with their idea of economy.
The people were not so solicitous iu
regard to the question of money. "We
hear a great deal about the rate of
taxation being too high, and that it
should be reduced. He did not be
lieve in reducing taxation to such an
extent that it would run into niggard
ly economy. He did not believe in
extravagance, and he did not believe
in the appropriation of money where
there was no necessity for it or where
it might be wasted in an extravagant
way. He did believe the interests of
this country and people demanded
the cheapening of transportation
rates and internal improvements.
Economy was a good thing in its way, '
but niggardly economy was danger-1
ous to the interests of the countryy.
The resolution was unanimously j
agreed to. J

"What a fine old-fashioned distinc-J
tion that is, by the way, the living
room! As if the rooms left for com
pany were dead rooms full of ghostly
furniture, kept for show, and of cold j
and fearful aspect. In a true home, i
every room shonld be a living-room.
"We Bhonld live all over our houses, !
having nothing too fine to use Of. ',
course the nursery should hold the j
young destroyers uutil they lenowj
what to break, if that knowledge j
ever comes. But lo a trooping set of i
happy boys and girls the house should j
bo open and free. Each person will
find his sanctum, of course, and!
evcrv one should, if possible have I
a room to himself. There should bo
a place for those who must worki
to retire lo, where solitude would bo
possible But the dining room, tho '
library, and the parlor should bej
cheerful and orderly, and always
lighted up by some constant familiar
presence. Somebody should be there
to welcome Ihe wanderer, to greet
the stranger, and to gather the chil
dren together as a hen gathers her;
chickens under her wings. This per
son is generally tho mother, who is
the core of the home It pays her
for all tho work, all tho trials. If she
can see her group passing into re
spectable manhood and womanhood,
if she can see happy, honest, hopeful
industrious sons and blooming
daughters, she compounds with tho
past for all its pains, its desperate
despair, its hard usage of herself.
She does not mind her altered face
aud figure, tho gray hair, the age
whicb has come loo soon. Her work
is done; she has made a happy home,
and its fruit is beforo her intact

NOT SWASH LANDS.
Teller Decides Apiiiit the
Claim of Oregon.
"Washington, Jan. 31, Keccntly
the general land office of Oregon ap
pealed from the commissioner's de
cision rejecting its claim to about
18,000 acres of alleged swamp tand,
chiefly on the ground that no testi
mony", had been submitted as to the
character of the land under its ac
tion and that its claims should bo so
determined, according to the original
plan agreed upon by the state and
the secretary of the interior. Secre
tary Teller to-day affirms the com
missioners decision in the main, for
the reason that the state had waived
this plan by the substitution of an
other, that the character of the lands
should be determined by a joint re
port of its agent, an agent of the
United States, specially deputized to
examine and report upon the lands,
and tliat under such reports the lands
in question were not swamp or over
flowed lands and did not inure to the
slate. I5ut as there was some ques
tion as to the character of about 1500
acres of the -18,000 Secretary Teller
modifies Commissioner McFarlaud's
decision and directs that a new ex
amination be made of the tracts by
agents of the United States and state
of Oregon, and if they concur in their
conclusions, that the same shall con
clude the question, but if they do
not concur, then that hearings be
held and the character of the lauds
bo determined by testimony.
Caue of Emperor "William's Sickucv..
London-, Jau. 31. Truth claims to
have positive information that tho
present serious illness of the German
emperor, is due to the imprudence of

Don't Give Up Yet.
It doesn't follow that a patient will
die because the doctors have "given
him up," or that lie will recover because
they promise to "pull him through." It
is never to late to try the great virtues
of Parker's Tonic. Air. Michael Guil
fovle, of Binghamton, N. Y was cured
of Itlicumatism by it after ten years of
unspeakable suffering. Mr. I!. W.
Aloslier, druggist, of same citj certifies
that he has sold over a thousand bottles
of Parker's Tonic through its reputa
tion for this and other cures.
