ABOUT FOREST FIRES.
Tiie Jacksonville Sentinel says:
Now that tourists are beginning to
pour into Southern Oregon, it would bo
well for all good citizens, especially
those who compose mountain parties, to
guard against the spread of mountain
fires. Aside from the wanton destruo
tion of timber and tho drying up of
water sources, it is specially desirabje
that our grand scenery and majestio
forests Bhould not be obscured by smoke
during the summer season. To the over
land traveler from the dusty and with
ered plains of California, the sight of the
green fields of Rogse river valley is a
standing plea in our f aTor.
Already the contrast is beginning to
procure marked commercial changes.
And it will be hard for the immigrant to
see why land in California should range
from $50 to $1,000 an acre, when the
same land in Oregon is only worth from
$10 to 15 per acre. Again the revenue
from tourists is destined io be of some
importance; it is safe to predict that sev
eral thousand dollars will bo distributed
by thoso visiting Crater lake, the Joseph
ine county caves, the Siskyiou3 and other
of our justly famous mountain resorts.
Its plain, then, that all are interested
in seeing the- country not enveloped in
The abovo is true, every word of
it, and vot there is another side to
tois question. Many a man here and
across the river, and, in fact, ell over
this northwestern country, has a tract
that he is trying his best to clear up,
and on such days as the present he
can do more in one hour with fire than
he could in three months -without it
He is here already, he has land taken
up and is trying to get a foothold, and
if the smoke from his clearing scares
anyone away, "while it is to be regret
ted, yet we. -would say by all means
burn while there is a chance, and
wliile the obstructions are dry enough
to burn This smoke that we see
every day all around is mainly not
from fires wantonly set that have got
from under control, but are from lit
tle clearings patiently watched by
men who own them and who take this
elective moans of getting a little bit
of"' God's green earth to raise some
thing to eat
TiiuitMANof Ohio, an able man
and to his credit bo it said an honest
man cannot get tho position of gov
ernor of Ohio, though tho Democrat
ic party of tho Buckeye state are
unanimous in demanding his nomina
tion. The Standard Oil company
which bought a seat in the United
States senate for senator Payne, say
-no. They put up considerable to
elect him against the protests of such
men as Thurman, and now servo no
tice that if Thurman is nominated
they -will defeat -him. Payne, the
Standard Oil Co.'s attorney in the
United States senate, votes -with the
Democrats, probably though courtesy
to tho Democratic members of the
Ohio legislature who were induced to
put him there.
A letter from district attorney
McBrlde appears in another column.
He is explicit in his statements, and
evidently means what he says. Sec
tion 4 of. "an act to provide for tho
propagation and preservation of salm
on," etc., passed by the last legisla
ture, creating a fish commission, says:
"It shall be tho duty of the president"
(of the fish commission) "to give his
entire! time and attention to the fish
ing interests of the state of Oregon,
and "by and with the advice and
direction of tho fish commissioners
Bee that all laws for the propagation,
protection and preservation of food
fishes in the public waters of the state
of Oregon, -whether entirely or partial
ly within tho state boundaries, are en
There are yet two short tunnels,
each about 450 feet in length, to be
constructed before the Oregon & Cali
fornia road -will be completed. It
seems almost impossible to finish the
entire gap inside of four months, but
judging from the amount of work
complete from tho dSacramento river
to Strawberry Yalley inside of that
time, this can be easily accomplished
in the sametime by the present force
engaged. Before the snow falls again
we may expect to see the rails laid for
through" connection. The right of
way men have their hands full in cut
ting through dense timber, the grad
ers being close up to them.
TerribiiE fire and terrible hot
weather are the daily burden of the
dispatches from tho east. 'Constant
"vigilance can alone save us from the
first affliction; our delightful climate
assures us constant immunity from
Bunstrbke, malarial fever, and all the
ills consequent upon a daily tempera
ture of over one hundred degrees in
Aiii. over some parts of our great
state threshing machines are moving
by the hundred. The wheat yield is
something enormous and in the aggre
gate yield of state wealth for '87 will
go 'far toward making up for the de
ficiency in the salmon yield.
It is stated that the freight rate on
wheat " from all points in eastern
Washington to Tacoma, over the
switchback, will be 95 a ton.
FUN ON THE WIRES.
If any one imagines that telegraph
operators don't have fun among
themselves, even during this swelter
ing weather, then he doesn't know
the crowd. Yesterday afternoon
while old Sol was -DOnrinir nnfc Inn
beams With blazinc f nrv. nnr! Trmmnrv
"was dancing a jig up among the 80s,
ana tne perspiring operators in the
Western Union telegraph office in
this citr were snatching news for the
Oregonian, there was a momentary
pause as if tho "op." at Chicago was
weary. In a moment the fellorr at
the Queen City sent flashing over tho
wires through all the intermediate
offices; iPhew? It is as hot here as
hades: I am nearly dead from the
heat and can't send report worth a
cent" Just at that mBtant the face
tiuos lighting manipulator at Spokane
Falls broke in and answered: "Why,
Chicago, I am freezing out here; I
have on three pairs of woolen socks
and a buffalo overcoat, and say, hold
on a minute, until I start a fire." Be
fore "Chicago" could respond, the
Portland "op." chipped in with:
"Why, say, Spokane, that ain't any
thing to talk about We can beat
that, for we have more than ten feet
of snow in sight of the office." (mean
ing Mount Hood.) "Chicago" must
nave smoled an audible smile, for he
flashed back the figures "73." which.
being literally translated into telegra
phic slang meant, "Well, you can
take the bakery?" A moment later
these faoetious boys ceased to crak
jokes half across the continent, mat
ters relapsed into the old routine
channels, and nothing was head but
the endless olatter of the instruments
as dots and dashes were recorded.
Seth Green Tells How to T&U.
"In the first place, when I go fish
ing, I go fishing. I don't hear the
babble of the brook. I don't see the
fluttering bird, nor the silvery leaves,
nor the beautiful sky. Neither do I
fish anybody else's line- I fish my
own, and l don t watcu my compan
ion, if I have one, to see when he
gets a bite or not. I don't care
whether ho gets a bite or not I am
attending to my own business and
looking for a good place to cast I
am looking for the fly that is on the
water, and to see if there is a rise. If
I see one, no matter if it is ten rods
away, I mark the place and make for
it I don't ran, but go quietly along
and keep fishing, and when I get
within casting distance I drop my fly
a little short, and if I don't get a rise
the next cast is made exactly on the
spot on which the fly lit My fly
does not go with a thud as though I
wanted to hit the ball's eye, but it
touches the water as lightly
as a fond mother's hand touches
the brow of a lovely, coax
ing child that she loves better
than I can find words to express. I
am just as sure of a rise, too, as the
fond mother is that the child will roll
its loving eyes up to the face with an
expression which says to her, 1 am
yours.' I feel when my fly dropB so
gently on the water that it does not
make a ripple, that the fish is mine.
That is the secret of fishing." Roo?t
Madame Trebelli, the greatest of
living contraltos who has traveled
extensively, in fact visited every
county and city of note in the world,

greatest admiration for the beaut
and grandeur of our scenery and the
delightful mildness of onr olimnto.
left the following written note as a
living expression of her opinion in
the hands of a Portland druggist, the
