MOSTLY ABOUT POLITICS.
Cincinnati, May 16. Tho united
labor convention met to-day with
about 100 delegates. The committeo
on resolutions made an informal re
port on two peints: the eight hour
law for letter carriers and the re
demption of government bonds, but
the report was tabled to allow Dr.
Mc Glynn from the conference com
mittee to make bis report. The Doc
tor reported that the committee
found the union labor committee dis
posed to union. He said he thought
nnicfti feasible so far at least as the
two committees were concerned. There
was necessity for still further discus
sion. The report of the committee
wa3 received and continued, there
being no further business that could
with propriety be entertained until
the final report of the committee on
conference was received.

AN IMPORTANT CHANGE.
The Portland and coast Transporta
tion company is"a corporation recent
ly organized in Portland to carry on
a general carrying business, the main
idea being to run steam vessels from
Portland and Astoria to Shoalwater
bay, Gray's harbor, Tillamook, Ya
qnina, the Siuslaw and the Coqnille.
Mr.F. R. Strong, representing that
organization came down yesterday
and made a proposition to the direct
ors of the Ilwaco Steam Navigation
Co., to buy the Oen. Miles or the
Dolphin, and take the route. The
price mentioned is understood to bo
between S28.000 and 830,000. It is
thought that the I. S. N. Co., will ac
cept the proposition. For several
years this company, has supplied
Shoalwater bay and Gray's harbor
with steam communication with As
toria with as much regularity as was
possible under the circumstances, the
receipts barely paying expenses.
Should the transaction be consum
mated, which is extremely probable,
it is the intention of the purchasers
to cut the Oen. Miles in two, lengthen
her thirty feet, build on another
deck, with increased accommodations
for passengers and run her on the
present route, building a new boat
and holding the Dolphin in reserve.
The projectors of the new organi
zation beliovo that by proper manage
ment much of the southern Oregon
coast trade that now goes to San
Francisco, can be directed to its
natural entrepot, tho Columbia river.
The modes of death's approach are
various, and statistics show conclu
sively that more persons die from dis
eases of the Throat and Lungs than
any other. It is probablo that every
one, without exception, receives vast
numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall
upon suitable soil they start into life
and develop, at first slowly and is
shown by a slight tickling sensation
in the throat and if allowed to con
tinue their ravages they extend to the
lungs producing Consumption and to
the head, causing Catarrh. Now all
this is dangerous and if allowed to
proceed will in timo cause death. At
the onset you must act with prompt
ness; allowing a cold to go without
yonr attention is dangerous nnd may
lose you your life. As soon as you
feel that something is wrong with
your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, ob
