...JULY 22. 18S7
Paget sound will this year ship several
cargoes of grain, perhaps quite a num
ber: The extent of the business will be
dependent upon the number of Teasels
suitable for wheat arriving there with
inward cargo, and by chance arnTalB or
others. The great bulk of that tonnage
taken to arrive or coming with no busi
ness will oontinue to enter the Columbia.
Gradually the exportation of grain from
Puoet Bound ports must grow, especially
if the Columbia river remains closed to
cheap carriage of grain this way. J.ne
rail lines are now announcing even rates
to Tacoma and Portland, om hauling
over the Cascades and the other having
u ea 'run down bill. Without river
competition, carrying charges on jrtieat
to rial water will not be greatly lessened,
and this is something that should strike
the grain produoer and the Portland citi
zen with catapultic force. Oregoman, 21.
The Oregonian sometime ago be
gan to see the light, and has made
many utterances that show how clear
ly it now realizes the necessity lot an
As between an open river and via
the Sound, the advantage in having
grain shipped by the way of the Co
lumbia river, its natural outlet, is so
manifest as to require no comment
It is evident in this regard that the
interests of all Columbia dwellers are
identical, whether in Portland, Asto
ria, "Walla "Walla or elsewhere.
It is for us, then, whose interests
are identical, to unite in an effort to
have these shipments made down the
Columbia river, and not diverted from
their natural channel, wherein they
can be carried cheaper than in any
Kiver competition is what iB needed
and river competition it must come
to. The situation is unparalleled in
the United States. A corporation
holding the key to the transportation
system of thousands of square miles
and credited if not actually guilty
with using every effort to retard even
the snail-like pace at which govern
ment work is being carried on on the
Numerous schemes have been pro
posed and advocated from time to
time, some of them apparently feasible.
At present the portage sytsem meets,
deservedly, with favor.
Some move is necessary, and that
soon. It will be the province and
the purpose of the coming waterway
convention soon to meet in this city
to discuss and select a concerted plan
of operations that can be pushed to a
One thing in this connection must
not be forgetten: it is claimed that
a 35 rate to Tacoma is as good as a
$1 rate ,to Portland, for the alleged
reason that wheat at Tacoma is worth
the same as it is at San Francisco.
Wheat afloat at Astoria should be
worth as much as wheat afloat at San
Next Tuesday a subscription mil
be opened for one day only in Europe
and America for a new loan, author
ized by the directors of the Panama
canal company. The shares offered
will have a par value of 8100,000,000,
but the loan is to be negotiated at a
discount of Ul per cent, so that if
all the bonds are taken the the pro
ceeds will amount to only $42,500,
000. The loan is to run forty-three
years, with interest at 3 per cent of
the par value. De Lesseps, in a let
ter to the. shareholders, states that
820,000,000 of the last emission is still
on hand, but that prudence demands
a new emission in case of a
sudden call for money when
political events might make it
difficult of procurement, and in order
to place the company in a position to
residt any attacks of enemies to the
enterprise. Ho maintains that with
the Eum of $120,000,000 authorized by
the government the canal can be fin
ished, or, if not entirely completed,
will be open for traffic on the date
fixed. This loan will raise the obliga
tions of the company to nearly 8400,
000,000, and the annual fixed charges
with .expenses of administration will
become nearly $20,000,000. At this
.rate $42,500,000 in cash will not last
very long, even "with the addition of
$20,000,000 said to be on hand.
The canning of green peas, which
is now a bnsy industry in Delaware,
is an interesting process. The peas
are shelled by hand and then fed into
the hopper of a separator, which di
vides them into three grades. Then
they are put into copper kettles, wherej
they are steamed just enough to wrin
kle the outer skins and intensify, if
possible, the vivid green of the pea.
They are then filled into cans, which
are placed on an iron tray and dipped
in a trough or tub of boiling water,
which runs into the cans, filling them
to the brim. This water contains
whatever of a preservative nature is put
into the cans to preserve the vegeta
bla The cans are then wiped, sealed
and packed in iron cages, each cage
holding two hundred and forty-eight
cans. These cages are put into air
tight steam kettles, where the cans
are subjected to hot steam under in-
tense pressure for about fifteen or
twenty minutes. The peas are then
ready for market
The nomination of Powell by the
Ohio Democrats yesterday is a strik
ing exemplar of the victory of matter
over mind. Thunnan, a statesman
and a public servant with a magnifi
cent record for honesty and efficiency,
was set aside by command of the
money bags of the Standard Oil com
pany. It was "necessary" that Thur-
man should be beaten, and the Stand
ard Oil company through its attorney
in the Senate, Henry B. Payne, whose
money bought his seat in that plutoc
racy, gave the Ohio Democrats notice
that if Thunnan was nominated he
would be defeated. And they took
their medicine and set Thunnan
aside. The people of Ohio will set
their nominee aside in November and
elect Gov. Foraker.
Pbikce Ferdinand has consented
to accept the call of the Sobranje to
the Bulgarian throne, and the troubles
of that kingdom seem likely to cease
for a time at least As Prince Ferdi
nand is an ofHcer in the Austrian ser
vice, his election is regarded as n
proof that Austria influence predomi
nates at Sofia. The Eussian candi
date, the prince of Mingrelia, seems
to have been not even considered by
the Sobranje, and in that sense Bussia
stands defeated, But it is not unlike
ly that Russia will take active steps
to make the new king's reign unpleas
ant. m i
It appears evident that senator
Sherman will not get the indorsement
of his state as a presidential candidate
in the Republican convention soon to
be held in Toledo. Mr. Blaine's Ohio
friends are up in arms against any
such action, and threaten to defeat
the Republican state ticket should
such a resolution be adopted, It will
be difficult for the country at largo to
understand why there should be any
opposition to Mr. Sherman in a state
of which he has so long been the
A Calais, Maine, man, who has
been reading in the papers accounts
of the alleged star of Bethlehem, has
made up his mind that it is an omen
of the destruction of the world by an
other deluge, and has made prepara
tions for such an event, so it is said,
by building a new variety of Noah's
ark. Unlike the original, however,
the ark is equipped with wheels, so
that it can be moved about on land as
well as on water. It also has a briok
chimney, and fireplaces in three rooms
on the first floor.
The question as to whether the nat
uralization of a foreigner has the ef
fect to make his minor son a citizen
on coming of age has been tried in
Missouri, in a contested election for
the office of sheriff. The supreme
court of that state held that the minor
was made a citizen by the naturaliza
tion of his father, but the case has
been appealed to the United States
The JLondon Times announces that
photography in co.lora is now an ac
complished fact; that after three years
of study, experiment and chemical re
search, a Mr. Mayall, of New Bend
street, has produced several colored
photographic portraits, without the
aid of handwork or bush, which pos
sesses the brilliancy and delicacy of
highly finished miniatures in oils.
The interstate commission has de
cided that any railroad lying wholly
