THE PANAMA CANAL.
Paris, Feb. 9. Tho public feeling
regarding tho chances of tho new
Panama Canal Company is one of
utter despondence. Ve J-iesseps, in
an interview, said that if all the 60,
000 bonds issued through the Banque
Parisienno are not taken, the enter
prise must be abandoned, and a for
eign nation would for a morsel of
bread eet the gigantic work, which
was nearly finished, nnd upon which
French investors had invested mill
ions. The canal would bo completed,
but neither by nor Tor the Jb reach.
Is Maniase a Failnre.
A writer in the New York Star says
of Eugene 'Wetherell,Emma Abbott's
husband, who died a week age: "I
knew 'Gene Wetherell. I think he
was the luckiest roan I over saw in
my life. I ran tho Springfield, 111.,
opera house one season, shortly after
Wetherell took chargo of his wife's
company. He was anxious to leave
town early ono morning. Tho com
pany was expected the next week.
He was on his way to Kansas City
and had stopped over to see about n
trifling matter his advance agent had
overlooked. Ho wanted to take an
early morning train, but tho clerk at
the hotel forgot to call him. When
I saw him at the hotel office about 9
o'clock he was storming around liko
a wild man. He said ho had a real
estate trado in Kansas City that he
would have to attend in person, and
this delay might cost him S 10,000.
While we wero talking n dispatch
came for him from New York, lolling
him of a prospective fall in a railroad
stock he was interested in. It would
not have reached him if lie had taken
the train. He closed out his stock at
a profit of S5.000. That afternoon ho
took tho western train. I didn't see
him for three months after that He
told me then that his delay of a few
hours in Springfield, instead of harm-
ins his trade, had made the real es
tate seller more anxious to dispose of
his property than ever, and he bought
it 52.000 below the pneo hrst agreed
unou. Altocether that hotel clerk
made 37,000 for him. I believe that
if be had stuffed his knees and fallen
on the pavement he would have found
a S100 bill. Wetherell left nearly
82,000,000 in property. It certainly
seems as if it was better to be born
lucky than rich, doesn't it?"
An Unlicensed Pilot.
In the United States district court
this morning Charles Kellogg plead
ed guilty to acting as pilot without a
license, and was need iuu
It appears from the complaint that
on tho 9th of last November, and at
various other times between that date
and December 10 he took chargo ot
the steamer known as the Joseph
Kellogg, which ran on tho Willamette
and Columbia rivers, nnd handled her
as master. Tho law bearing upon
the subject is not laid down for the
sake of its ornamental features, it
seems, but for actual business. Port

PORTLAND'S -WATER BONDS.
An 1'iiaiisnerable Ainmcnt Against
Astoria, Feb. 8. '69
In an editorial of yesterday's Ore
gonian in which Governor Pennoyer
is scored for vetoing the Portland
water bill, an effort is mado to argue
that it is not unconstitutional to ex
empt the water bonds of the city of
Portland. I say an attempt 13 made
to argue, because no argument is
made, none can be made, on that side
of the question. Tho Oregoniun ad
mits that tho bonds, when disposed
of, become private property, aud if
that is true it admits the whole case
away. Whenever they become pri
vate property, they become taxable,
under the constitution, and the legis
lature has no power to exempt them.
Any attempt to do so is an attempt
to overrido the constitution. But
the Uregonian urges this course.
That journal, which claims to be, and
is the leading journal of tho north
west urginn the members of the legis
lature to disregard their oath", and do
violence to the constitution of the
state is indeed to bo regretted. It urges
that if these bonds are taxed it will
drive them out of tho state where I
they cannot be reached; but it fails'
to remark, that in th.it event, the
money ot Portland, aud which would !
otherwise purchase those bonds will I
remain subject to laatioii by the '
state; that is to say. if the bonds are
not taxed, tho rich mph of Portland
will put Sl,500,000of their money into
these bonds, and thus place it where
it can't be taxed. But tho Oregoniau
says it will mure to the benefit of
the city of Portland. That is true,
and we who do not live in Portland,
will be called upon to help pay for
that benefit to Portland by helping
to make up tho amount ol stalo tax.
lost to the state by tho withdrawal or
that 81,500.000 from ihe taxable prop
erty of Multnomah county. Then
every other municipality in the state
will follow in tho path mapped out
by the municipality of Portland, nnd
we who live in incorporated towns
and cities will ride m chaises and the
poor unfortunates who live outside
will walk -v " up
and pay their exira taxes.
I have heard it argued that this
81,500,000 which will go into those
bonds is not reached, at tho present
time, for purposes of taxation;
but that it is covered up. Well that
may bo true, but our legislature could
spend its timo moro proutably m
trying to find some means to reach
such property for tho purpose of tax
ation, than iu trying to exempt it, in
violation of both tho letter aud the
spirit of the constitution.
The Multnomah delegation in tho
legislature havo urged the passage of
this bill on the ground that it will
give the poor peoplo of Portland
cheap water. Other members should
consider that if it succeeds in that
respect it will ba at tho expense of
other poor people, who reside outside
of Portland, and are obliged to pay
taxes, and are as much in need and
entitled to consideration as the poor
people Qf Portland.
The "Arizona Kicker"' Apologizes.
During our absence last week an
item crept into tho local columns
which has stirred up considerable
feeling. It was in relatiou to the
death of Judge Handy, aud tho
writer of it, supposing truth was de
manded, said the deceased was an
old loafer, bummer, drunkard and
dead-beat, and that ho was found
dead beside a jug of whiskey. The
friends of the deceased we:o justly
indignant at this expose, although
they do not dispute the charges. We
are very sorry that anything of the
sort should happen, and are now
preparing an article for next week, m
which the Judge is complimented for
his sobriety and love of cold water
praised for bis honesty aud integrity
complimented for his public chari
ties, and referred to as one of the
most upright men west of Chicago.
While nil know better, and while the
whole thing will be a falsehood, wo
shall be smoothing it over for his
friends. Extra copies, done up ready
for mailing, only 5 cents each. -If -zona
The Irnii-ition from long, lingering
anil painful sickness to robust liealt i
marks an epoch in the life of the indi
vidual. Such a remarkable event is
treasured in the inemorv and the asrwicv
whereby the good health lias been at
tained is gratefully blessed. Hence it is
that so much is heard in praise of Elec
tric Bitters. So many feel they owe
their restoration 1o health to the use of
the Great Alterative and Tonic. If von
arc troubled with any disease of the
Kidneys, Liver or Stomach, of long or
short standing you will surely find re
