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 smoke. 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 forced." 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 the shade. 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. Oregonian, 18. - 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 ester Democrat. Famous "Women.
