SUGGESTIONS FOR PORTLAND.
Another strong argument for the
necessity of a railroad connecting this
city trith the "Willamette valley is the
fact that 250,000 tons of wheat have
th year been raised in that valley,
and as the Orcgonian truthfully re
marks, all of this will pass through
Portland on its way to be 'shipped to
foreign ports. If there was a railroad
to this city from that valley, nine
tenths of the wheat raised there would
come here for shipment on vessels to
foreign lauds. Not a week passes but
what some vessel is caught on the bars
between Portland andhere, and almost
every time the ocean steamers go up
or uown'tbe river they are detained
more or less on the bars.
Whon Astoria has a railroad, all the
dwji sea vecsels will unload and load
at our wharves, and though every one
knows that would rapidly build up a
large city here, yet year after year
rolls by, and those who are well able
to do something towards the construc
tion of a road sit motionless as a lump
on a log.
This is not said antagonistic to Port
laud for that will always be a large
nod prosperous city, but the shipping
business is fast going to the Sound,
autl it would bo much better for Port-1-ukI
to have it come here, for then
llieir wholesale merchants would have
plily of trade from here, while now
it is taken from the stale. Large
quantities of grain grown in Oregon
arc going by rail to the Sound, and
ilKice on shijis to foreign lands.
Portland may do her best but she
carnxri make the shipping consider
tlis( a deep water port, and the sooner
lier Merchants and capitalists realize
the fact and bend all their energies to
the construction of a railroad here
aol acknowledge Astoria as the ocean
seaport of Oregon, the better it will be
for them and the whole state.
Woxpbks in science and art are
daih being manifested, but hero is a
wonder in another line, which is al
most marvelous, for a railroad official
refuses an increase of salary, and
surely that is an almost unprecedented
occnrresice. President Bliss, of the
Boston ,t Albany railroad, was re-c-silly
offered an advance of 8,000
ppr annum iu his salary. Ho refused,
on the ground that he did not con
sider his services worth 20,000 a year,
instead of $12,000, which he had been
accustomed to draw. "Besides,"
added Mr. Bliss, "if I accept, it will
be necessary to raise the salaries of my
follow officials proportionately, and
that would entail a heavy increase in
expenses." This is an incident that
should be preserved in history, for it
is never known to have happened be
fore, and probably will never be re
pealed in the history of railroad man
aiauomf. Tnx AsroniAX acknowledges with
plensnrc the receipt of the second an
nual report on the statistics of rail
ways in the United States to the in
terstate commerce commission for the
a car eudiug Juno 30, 18S9. It is a
bound volume of oGG pages, and con
tains a vast amount of information
pertaining to all the railroads of the
country, and as a book of reference, is
exceedingly valuable. Its careful
compilation reflects great credit on
the efficiency of Edward A. Closely,
the able secretary of the board.

A man well known In this community
writes the following interesting letter:
"1 was chopping a stnmp four weeks
ago, when a flying chip struck me In
the eye; for a shorlrtlme Iwas entirely
blind. Then partial sight returned,
again. I nurtured nope and continued
to treat it at home, until ten days ago,
when I began to abandon hope of ever
seeing perfectly again, unless some
thing more than ordinary was done.
1 then counciled two of the leading
Oculists of Portland, who told me one
eye would have to be cut out to save
the other. It did not exactly suit me to
have my eye cut out, and so I sought
other council. I went to Dr. Prentice,
the U enlist, then at Portland, and he
laughed at the idea of its being neces
sary to cut my eye out; I joined in tho
laugh, for it was on my side. 1
have been free from pain since the first
day's visit to Dr. Prentice, and im
proved steadily, and am now entirelv
well again. I feel safe in saying that ff
Dr. Prentice cannot cure a case he will
always say so. Tnos. H. Foss,
Gray's River, Wash.
A Touching Scene Witnessed By a Portland
One week ago we received an invita
tion to witness a delicate surgical oper
ation on an eye. 'J he patient was the
17-year-old daughter of Harrison Hay.
ror inree years sne naa ueen uiuiu in
both eyes with a cataract, and was
oblieed to crope her way about in total
darkness. The patient, without taking
chloroform, submitted to the followmc
operation: bhewasnow ready for the
surgical part of the work, and wo stood
in breathless anxiety as Dr. Prentice
placed the point of his knife at the
side of the eyeball, carefully touched
the point of the cornea, then the blade
entered the eye; we saw it pass through
the eye in front of the pupil and then
come out at the opposite side. It was
then drawn upward, and a cut made ot
about one-third of the circumference of
the ball. Another instrument was then
passed in back of the pupil, and almost
on tho instant the girl said: "Oh, Dr.
Prentice 1 can see you." This was
spoken in tones well calculated to bring
tears to one's eyes. From the time
the knife touched the eye until the
patient could see, it was just one min
ute. She was allowed to sec those
about her for a moment, then the eye
was closed and bandaged.
in lust one week alter the operation
she came into our office and was able to
read our paper. She also wrote a loiter
home, saying; "Dear parents, I can
see and am happy."

From a Tatlent Who Was Cored Br Dr.
Pobtl AND, Or., Oct. 7, 1890.
To the Suffering: For five years I
have suffered with sleeplessness, ner
vous debility, irritation at the base of
uiu urain, aim a lernuiu Kiunuy uisuuc.
I had tried so many remedies that did
me no eood that at last 1 gave up all
hope of ever bein? a well man again. I
tried many prescriptions that were
said tone sure cures, and all tailed.
There were many times during the
past few years that I was obliged to lay
off from work from two weeks to three
months at a time. Lately 1 was Tun
ning down in health very rapidly, and
was alarmed. I contemplated leaving
this paitof the country and trying to
sec it I could not net relief elsewhere.
I must say that my faith in doctors was
about gone; but sonu'lhihi; lead me to
visit Dr. Prentice at the Esmond hotel.
I crowded in with the others and
waited my turn. He examined me, told
me where my trouble was, and said he
could cure it without medicine. I can't
say that I really believed him, but
something in his manner led me to
trust him. He gave me no medicine at
all, yet from the day of my first visit I
began to improve rapidly. I now sleep
as sound as a child. My memory is
greatly improved. My kidney disease
and brain irritation are entirely well,
my appetite splendid, and 1 now enjoy
life and perfect health. Any afflicted
person wishing to learn about my case
will find me at address below.
