Adani3 and Holcomb have gone
back to Omalia. Nobody succeeded
in getting the reticent president of the
Union Pacific to say where the
terminus of the road would be on the
Sound, bnt men who claim to be on

From the general talk here at
political headquarters, it is considered
certain that the entire Republican
state ticket will be elected by majori
ties varying from 2,700 for Thompton,
to 0,500 for Hermann.
Considerable of the population of
Portland are talking Astoria real es

more favorable developments in the

An Electricil Rat T.ai.
A young electrician of Omaha has a
very ingenius way of killing rats. Tho
rodent is canght in an ordinary oval
trap, the bottom of which is covered
with tin. One wire, connected with a
dynamo, is fastened to the tin lining of
the trap and another is thrust into the
prisoner's celL The well known pro
pensity of a caged rat to do battle as
serts itself and he seizes the wire be
tween his teeth. In doing so he makes
the mistake ofjlm life. The circuit is
completed, his jaws close on tho wire
with a death grip, and without a
squeak, and almost without a quiver,
he passes into a state of eternal des
uetude. Dyspepsia, indigestion, sick headache
and that tired teeling are cured by
Hood's Sarsaparilla, winch tones the
stomach, promotes healthy digestion,
creates an appetite, cures sick headache
and builds up the whole system. Sold
by all druggists. 100 Doses One Dollar.
Ben Young is just down fromFraser
river. It will be remembered that
Mr. Young left this city for England
last March, in connection with his
salmon business, and after making
satisfactory arrangements returned.
He reports somo dissatisfac
tion among English dealers
in consequence of alleged bad
condition of some parcels of salmon
from various sources, principally owing
to weakness of contracts for delivery.
The result is that nearly
every parcel is turned over to
arbitrators, who often make awards
favoring the purchaser. Mr. Young
thinks the packers of this coast should
see that they havo representatives
there to look after their interests,
otherwise they will be often losers.

Veterans of the Civil War.
As a part of the census of the people
to bo taken during the month of June
Bpecial provision has been made by
congress for ascertaining the names
of surviving soldiers, sailors, and
marines who were mustered into the
service of the United States during
the war of the rebellion, aud of the
widows of soldiers, sailors, and marines
who havo died. In connection with
this special census of veterans the
organization or vessel in which they
served, tho term of service in each
case, and present residence will bo
taken by the census enumerators. In
the case of widows, information re
garding the service of their deceased
husbands is also required.
Tho importance of accurate state
ments concerning tho military record
of each participant m tho late war
should not bo underestimated. It
should bo tho duty moreover of every
veteran soldier or sailor to see that the
enumerator is placed in possession of
the necsssary information concerning
his own service. If he cannot bo at
home when the enumerator calls he
should leave a proper memorandum
in tha hands of his wife or other mem
ber of his household, so that the work
of tho census may not be delayed, and
also that there may be no doubt as to
the accuracy of tho statement concern
ing his service which may be given to
the census enumerator. That there
may be no question as to the points to
be covered by this memorandum,
it may be well to state that
the special inquiries to bo mado
concerning veterans of the civil war
include the name, the company, and
the regiment or vessel in which they
served, their late rank, the dates of
enlistment and discharge, the length
of service in years, months, and days,
and their present post-office address.
Where a soldier or sailor re-enlisted or
served in more than ono organization
or vessel, ho should be very careful to
givo tho term of service in each in
stance, and to cover each enlistment
In giving the organization care should
be taken to distinguish the arm of tho
service, as infantry, cavalry, etc, and
if a person served under an assumed
name, his statement should be made
to cover both the name under which
he served and tho true name by which
hois now known.
Veterans of the war generally will
recognize and appreciate the value of
this special census to them, and they
should aid tho census enumerators in
getting true statements in every way
possible. Without their co-operation
correct results cannot be reached.
This personal appeal is made to them,
therefore, iu the hope that their atten
tion may be specially directed to the
importance ot this work and tho neces
sary information may be promptly
supplied to tho census enumerator
when he calls somo time during the
month of June.
