S03IE FAST SHIPS.
Some remarkably fast vessels,
both for war and passenger ser
rioe, have reoently been built in
England. The former, however,
though built in England, are not
for the British navy. The swift
est craft yet turned omt of an En
glish dockyard and probably the
swiftest constructed anywhere up
to the present are three torpedo
boats supplied to Spain, Italy and
China. The Chinese craft is the
slowest of these, but her speed is
23.8 knots. The Italian torpedo
makes 25 knots. These two boats
are about 130 feet long by 13 feet
beam, and are equipped with tor
pedo guns, fore and aft. But the
swiftest craft of all is the torpedo
boat built by Thordencroft for the
Spanish government, which is said
to have made the extraordinary
peed of 29.01 knots, or some
what more than thirty-three miles
an hour. The fastest craft
in the English navy is the
Stiletto, whose speed ranges from
22.12 knots in a rough sea to 22.89
knots with all the conditions fa
Torable. Thus, the Stiletto holds
only the fourth place among tor
pedo boats. She is smaller, how
ever, than those mentioned above,
being only 90 feet in length, and
therefore most diffioult to hit.
A passenger steamer, the Queen
Victoria, intended to ply between
Liverpool and Douglas, Isle of
Man, has been built at Greenock.
On her trial trip, which was made
in the teeth of a heavy gale, she
averaged 22 knots equal to 25
miles an hour, The Cunarder
Umbrid8 last voyage beat the
transatlantic record, with an aver
age of 19 knots, making the dis
tance in six days, four hours and
twelve minutes. At the speed at
tained by the. Queen Victoria, the
Atlantio could be crossed in four
days and eighteen hours.
Matters between the O. R. &
N. Co. and the people of eastern
Washington, says the Telegram,
are in about this conditien: "The
company declares it cannot carry
wheat between Walla Walla and
Portland at less than $5 per ton
and pay running expenses. The
people declare that they cannot
pay more than $3 per ton and
make running expenses. If facts
bear out these assertions on both
sides it is 'apparent that the peo
ple of that region had better seed
their fields down to grass and
raise stock, since a surplus of that
kind could be driven out of the
country, and no thanks to trans
portation lines. There is dearly
no point to farmers in giving
the crop- year after year for the
sake of getting it placed in market,
and no point , to railroad
companies in carrying it at a loss.
The way to get at the facts in
the case is to observe which of the
two forces in the contest get the
better return for labor and invest
ment, as indicated by their rela
tive prosperity, the farmers in the
eastern Oregon and Washington
region, or the transportation com
pany that has long served them in
taking their crops to market."
But a better way would be to take
it down the route marked for it by
the hand of the Creator the Co
lumbia river as it will be some
time, when the obstructions at the
Cascades and The Dalles are re
moved. Yesterday's New York World
prints letters from seventy recog
nized leaders in the labor political
movement throughout the country,
in reply to a series of questions
relative to the problem of the po-
Htical action of a new party in the
' presidential contest of 1888, and
in state elections this year. Re-
plies are received from leaders in
twenty-eight states. Fifty-nine
labor men replied for themselves
and organized labor in their vicin
ity. They were in favor of inde
pendent political action at this
flalTn State and local eleotions.
Three replies are in favor of not
holding a convention until state
committees are organized. Sixty
six replied in favor, most emphat
ically, of the nomination of a
labor candidate for the presidency,
and four are non-committal. From
the various replies to the question,
as to the party from which the
new movement will draw more
largely, it seems labor men expect
to get about 70 per cent, from the
Democratic ranks, and 30 per cent,
from the Republican.
A Mississippi candidate for
the legislature, named Chatam,
shot and killed a Mississippi editor
named Hawkins, at Lexington, in
that state, last Wednesday. The
dispatch says they had been dis
cussing politics and drinking beer.
Politics always are an unsafe topic
to discuss, except in self defense.
It served the editor right to be
killed. He should have got the
drop on the other fellow.
Women" were not allowed to
vote at the Seattle city election
last Monday. Opinion is divided
in the territory on this question,
somo holding that the women have
a right, under the law, to vote;
others, that the recent territorial
court decision is final and that
they cannot vote.
Wir. McDaniel starved him
self to death in Los Angeles last
Wednesday, afraid or unwilling to
spend any of the $3,000 he had de
posited in the bank. Wm., by
this action, showed that he had a
just and accurate idea of the value
of his life.
The fruit and salmon crops are
short this year, but the wheat
never promised better, and there
is every appearance of a big crop.
Lumber interests, too, are prosper
ous. The San Diego, Cal., dailies
are dying, which would appear to
indicate that the great southern
California boom is waning.

A Lake View boy was delighted
when his mother returned from the
city with a new pair of trousers for
him, but when asked to try them on
he refused, and gave as his reasen:

Little Sadie M. was recently eating
a good deal of choice oonfeotionery,
to the detriment of her digestive or
gans. Finally her mother sternly
forbade her eating any more. Sha
sighed mournfully and said: "Oh,
dear, I wish I was a cow." "Why,
Sadie," exclaimed her mother in a
horrified tone, "what do you meanf"
"Well, if I was a cow, I could bring
all that candy up and chew it over
