At about 1 o'clock Friday niorn

ploded under tho saloon of John
Daly of Detroit The building was
blown to atoms, and there i 1 no
trace of Daly tho proprietor. It is
feared that he perished in tho de
struction of the building. Tho ex
plosion shook every building in I)r
froit, and many windows were brok
en by the force of the concussion.
Hosidonts five miles distant from
the scene of tho explosion heard

FAVOR PARCELS POST.
Proposed Reform is Very Moderate,
but in the Right Direction.
For the first lime in years the
United States has a Postmaster
General who seems to appreciate
the opportunities of his office. Tue
postofiice department might, under
intelligent management such as
prevails in other countries, become
one of the principal means of en
lightenment and comfort to the na
tion, but almost the sole concern of
those who have conducted it in re
cent years has been ti avoid in
fringement upon the privileges of
Mr. Meyer wishes to establish a
genuine parcels post. He would
raise the mailing limit to eight or
ten pouuds. At present it is four
pounds. The proposod reform is
very moderate, but it is in the right
din-cton, and, if it overcomes the
opposition of the parasitic express
companies, it will relieve the Ameri
can people from numerous vexa
tions. Our ptimitive postal facili
ties are a scandal i" a country
which boasts ol its wealth and prog
ressivenC'S. Kven in Grpat Britain
where railroad influence is utroiig,
the mailing limit is eleven pounds.
In France it is 22 and in Gennauy
110 pouuds. The United States
charges 10 cents a pound for post
age on parcels. In Great Britain it
is lj cents, lor a pound pat eel mid
2." cents for It pounds an v where
within tho islands. The rate to
Hongkong by way of Suez, which
is much farther than New York to
the Philippines, is 12 cents a
pounds. Uverywhero on the con
tinent of Europe small parcels ore
sent by mail at cheap rates, where
we must submit to the extortion of
the express companies. Famdies
are served with groceiies by mail.
The laundry comes and gous
through tho mail. The to-trists
mail his small baggage. In France,
Germany, Switzerland it is thought
be'ler to Kerv the welfare of the
people than to' he-qi lip big divi
dends for tiust magnates.
Of course tho expttss companies
will continue to oppose the parcels
post. Their graft is too lucrative
to he given up without a struggle.
Mr. Meyer says the parcels post
will not compete with these over
grown parasites, but compjiition
cannot be avoid, d. His reform
would save enormous sums to the
peoplo but it would cut off the same
amount from the revenues of Stua
tor Piatt's trust. Hitherto the
trust has b.en strong and wily
enough to block every move to
establish a parcels post; but there
is reason to hope that it msy not
control the next Congress. Mr.
Meyer, speaking for the American
people, will perhaps receive more
attention than Mr. Piatt speaking
for his monopoly. Oregonian.

Campaign of Publicity to Get Home

by the Commercial Club of Port

Widespread interest is being
awakened over the state in the cam
paign started by the Portland
Commercial Club to secure distribu
tion throughout the east of the leaf
lets announcing the colonist rates
and urging bomeseekers to visit
Oregon during the month of Sep

mercial organizations and many in
dividuals over the slate, asking for
bunches of the leaflets They will
be inserted iu correspondence that
is sent east.
Pre-eminent in the consideration
of a Pacific Coast trip by Eastern
people at this time is the fact that
the colonist rates during th month
of September, will be the last rates
of this kind granted by transconti
nental railroads. Never again will
they, it is said, voluntarily give the
people opportunity to travel from
the Missouri river to the Pacific
coast for the sum of $20. The East

the cheap rates must come now.

The colonibt rate allows passen
gers all the privileges of a first
class train excepting a berth in a
standard Pullman sleeper. Instead
ot this he is carried on a first-class
tourist sleepiug car, which contains
every needful convenience of travel.
The all-important thing to re
member in purchasing a colonist
ticket is to have it designato the

eler wishes to locate. The price is
the same for any destination in the
state, but the ticket must bo pur
