Deputy Collector of Customs Barnes is back from Independence, where he went Friday to inspect the steamer Independence, being built there by Captain George Skinner to ply be tween that point and Salem on the Upper Willamette. The craft has a length of 53.5 feet; 9 feet beam and 3 feet depth of. hold. She is 10 tons burden and will draw about a foot of water when in trim. The completion of the craft hinges upon the arrival of the machinery from the East The towns on the upper stream have long desired a steamer of the Inde pendence's class in order that the stream could be navigated at almost any stage of water. The Salem Chamber of Commerce has lent aid to the project and the craft is well sub sidized in a way. Portland Telegram. A Hard Loser. Ex-Chief of Police Lewis W. Robert son still seeks the money he claims to have lost while pursuing the tiger at the Portland Club last Fall. The fact that a jury recently decided that nothing was due him, and that if he lost his coin of the realm it was no one's fault but his own, and even in ferentially decided that he lost no money, has not had effect of daunting the courage of the former custodian of the municipal peace. That this is a fact appears on the face of a motion for a new trial filed in the State Cir cuit Court and setting out as ground for the proposed proceeding that there was an error of the court at the time of the trial which entitles the plaintiff to another chanee with a jury.

The dentists who hold the opinion that Governor Chan.berlain departed from legal requirements, as well as the dictates of good taste, in his recent appointment to the state dental board, may have their inning the first time the genial governor is rash enough to have his teeth repaired. A sharp drill in a sensitive tooth is argument enough to persuade any man from the error of his ways, even though his ways be after the order of blind partisanship and his methods those of the man who sees in public office only a "new way to pay old debts. "Albany Herald. Drama at Falls City. The beautiful drama. "Damon and Pythias" was played in Falls City by Homer Lodge, K. of P., of Inde pendence, Saturday night. A special motor was run from Independence to accommodate the people going from that place. The visitors wejre pleasantly entertained by the members of the Falls City lodge, and the drama was witnessed by a large audience. NO COMBINATION James McCain Says "No Pooling of Interests" between Wyatt and Himself. Hon. James McCain, a prominent candidate for Circuit Judge of the Third Judicial District, writes the Oregon ian as follows: "M'MINNVILLE, Or., March 17.- (To the Editor.) My attention has been called to the Salem correspond ence in the issue of the 14th inst. of your paper, in which it is intimated that there is a 'union of forces' or 'pooling of interests' between Hon. J. R. Wyatt and myself as candidates for the Judgeship in this district. I have not thought it necessary, or even proper, to rush into print when my name has been mentioned, even erroneously, in connection with this matter. But inasmuch as mv friends in other counties than this might think it strange if I should allow this report to go unchallenged, I beg to say through your columns that the report has absolutely no foundation in fact. I have not made.- and shall not make, any combination with any other aspirant or person. No one can afford to seek this pos;tiori by such means. , . V xno position is an iionorasie one, which almost any lawyer would be proud to fill at some time in las career. But if I do not attain to it until I reach it by political methods, I will remain where I am, and continue to do legal business at the old stand. I feel quite sure that every other gentleman whose name has been mentioned in this con nection will take the same view of the subject. "If I have the support of a solid delegation frommypwn county, which I think probable, I will be satisfied whatever may be the result, and such delegates will be at liberty to support whomsoever they may see proper with out suggestions from me; JAMES M'CAIN." mm Consumption is a human weed flourishing best in weak lungs. Like other weeds it's easily destroyed while young ; when old, sometimes im possible. Strengthen the lungs as you would weak land and the weeds will disappear. The best lung fertilizer is Scott's Emulsion. Salt pork is good too, but it is very hard to digest The time to treat consump tion is when you begin trying to hide it from yourself. Others see it, you won't. Don't wait until you can't deceive yourself any longer. Begin with the first thought to take Scott's Emulsion. If it isn't really consumption so much the better; you will soon forget it and be better for the treatment. If it is consump tion you can't expect to be cured at once, but if you will begin in time and will be rigidly regular in your treat ment you will win. Scott's Emulsion, fresh air, rest all you can, eat all you can, that's the treatment and that's the best treatment. We will send you a little of the Emul sion free. Be sure that this picture in the form of a Ubtl w on the wrapper of every bottle of EmuluoQ yoa buy. SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists, 409 Peart St., N. Y. oc. and V, all druggists. 3f fV-4 r- : . .

The primaries of the Democratic party will be lieia in the various pre cincts of Polk County on Wednesday, Apia 13, iyu4, at the hour or one o'clock, for the purpose of electing a precinct committeeman and delegates to the Democratic County Convention, which will be held at the County Court House in Dallas, Oregon, on Satur day, April 1G, 1904, at 10 o'clock. The apportionment of delegates is fixed at one delegate for each ten votes or fraction thereof of five or more cast for Geo. E. Chamberlain for Govenor at the election of 1902, the number of delegates being as follows : Douglas .

W. KIRKLAND, Oscar Hayter, Chairman. Secretary. Found Shark's Tooth. M. B. Grant, the mail carrier on Rural Route No. 2, leading from Dallas to the Luckiamute country, recently picked up an almost perfect specimen of shark's tooth on the Falls City railroad grade, at the Lee hill south of town. The clay in which the tooth had been imbedded was taken from a heavy cut in the hill about 20 feet below the surface of the ground. Mr. Grant sent his strange find to Professor Condon, the expert geologist at the University of Oregon, and received a letter this week saying that the tooth is that of a man-eating shark. Mr. Grant values the prize very highly, and will probably have it mounted for a watch charm. Many Words on Postal Card. Rev. Joseph Hoberg, who is 70 years old, last week wrote a communication to his grand-daughter at Dallas which was a remarkable feat for one upon whose head the snows of so many winters are lingering. Mr. Hoberg's message was written to Miss Rebecca Gates on the occasion of the anniver sary of her birth. It was an ordinary government postal card, but it con tained one thousand and fifty plainly written words. McMinnville Report er. Stock Wintered Well. Thomas Brunk, of Eola, attended the meeting of the Democratic Central Committee in Dallas, Saturday. He says his stock wintered in good shape, having been well sheltered and fed. Mr. Brunk does not depend on the out side range during the winter months, but raises an abundance of roots, grain and hay, and feeds his stock in barns. He reports kidding well ad vanced, and the lambing season about over. Bridge Carpenter Injured. Last Wednesday, while attempting to flag a train at the bridge near Whiteson, one of the bridge-men was struck by the train and seriously njured. In crossing the track, his foot slipped and before he could re cover himself the train was upon him. He was severely cut about the head and his arm was hurt. It was a close call from death. McMinnville Tele phone-Register. Land Quickly Taken. Nine and a fractional sections in township 10 south, range 11 west, were thrown open to settlement at the Ore gon City Land Office at 9 o'clock Tuesday. The tract embraces more than COOO acres, and all the land was filed on with the exception of a quarter section by the 34 applicants who stood n line for an hour before the office was opened, me land, winch is located in the Siletz reservation, was opened to settlement under the pro visions of the homestead law, and was taken almost entirely by Salem and Albany people. Two similar tracts in the same section of this land district will be opened to settlement on April 6 and 13, respectively. A Missouri editor refused to publish obituary notices of people who, while living, failed to subscribe to his paper, giving this pointed reason : "People who do not take their home paper are dead anyway, and their mere passing away is of no news value."

Oregon. O. A. Westgate Resigns. G. A. Westgate, of Albany, a men ber of the state board of agriculture, has filed his resignation with Gov ernor Chamberlain to take effect at once. Mr. Westgate has been on the board for several years, having been appointed to fill a vacancy by Govern or Geer, and he has been a valuable member. He has extensive business interests in Linn and Marion counties, operating a half dozen warehouses, a bright daily newspaper, and is inter ested in otner enterprises, and it is thought that his principal reason for resigning is that he feels he cannot spare the time to devote to the work of the fair. Salem Journal. Fierce Equinoctial Gale. The severe storm of last Saturday afternoon and night effected no dam age in Dallas or vicinity, further than to blow down electric light and tele phone poles. Early in the night the wind was accompanied by a heavy downpour of rain, with an occasional flurry of snow. The town was in darkness all of Saturday night. APOSTLES OF STARVATION Marion County Editor Vigorously , Scores the Food Cranks in His Columns. If those women who preside over "household departments" and write long-winded articles on domestic economy "how to make a $100 rock ing chair out of an old salt barrel," or "how to live on 30 cents a month" if these writers are not headed off p. d. q., the human race will have nothing to eat in a few years. Every one of these women has an especial aversion to some particular article of food, and one by one our good old standbys go to the dogs, as it were. Not long ago one of these dyspeptics began a crusade against potatoes, and not content with that sacrilegious onslaught, actually laid her unholy hands upon beans. Both these old- timers were held up to ridicule by this daughter of Eve and denounced as unfit for human food. It is safe to say she doesn't know beans, or potatoes either, for that matter. Of course, pork, bacon, meat, etc., have been disnosed of loner ncro. but the worst has yet to come, for now Witch of Endor has discovered that eggs for breakfast are to go after this, We are expecting every min ute to hoar a magazine war-whoop against maple syrup and buckwheut pancakes, as nothing is sacred from their scurrilous pens. We feel like hiding some of our favorite dishes before they are quarantined by these Amazons. If we should ever meet one of these writers, we would doubtless find dyspepsia written all over her. Reared in a large city, attending "pink teas" and midnight "dinners" they are excusable to a great extent, and the reader should consider where it comes from. If they would go out to their cousin's farm and help do the churning, washing and keeping a garden, they would find no objection to lianr and eggs for breakfast, with mashed potatoes on the side.

His A telegram in the Sunday papers has the following of general interest to the people of Oregon : The announcement is made that Julius Kruttschnitt is soon to relin quish the position of general manager of the Southern Pacific, to accept one of higher authority in Chicago. It was stated Saturday by Mr. Kruttschnitt that his successor will be Charles H. Markham, at present vice president and general manager of the Galveston, Harrisburg &San Antonio railway and the Houston & Texas Central railroad in Texas. Mr. Kruttschnitt expects that the change will take place within the next four weeks. Mr. Markham was formerly sta tioned in Portland. His employers have been quick to recognize his ability, and his rise in the railroad world has been rapid. His many friends will be highly pleased to learn he is to be promoted. His return to the S. P. Co. will be appreciated by all his old Oregon friends, as he is regarded as one of the best railroad men in the United States. His appointment as traffic manager of the Oregon lines of the S. P. Co. was the first real step in the direction of popularizing the service, and, after being hero a few years, the feeling of hostility and unfriendliness toward the company gave way to one of cordial good will and co-operation. This magic result came about through Markhatn's personal influence and his common everyday way of treating everybody, and his uniform courtesy and efforts to meet the demands of shippers. It is confidently believed that Mr. Markham's coming back will mean less complaints of car shortage and oppressive lumber rates. There may not only be more cars, but more engines and better train service all around. Mr. Markham is not only a good railroad man, but as thoroughly un derstands the people as he does the transportation business. He will ac- complish a great deal for the shippers, nnrl fnr tlm i-nmimnv h aprvpa. if Vu a is given the power to handle the traffic the way it should be handled from the standpoint of intelligent raiironalng', ni - Hloog iinoa-ol ttio least resistance. The Markham poli cies worked wonders in Oregon and has made the lines profitable and popular wherever he has had any connection with railroads. That kind of a management will be worth mil lions to the Harriman linos, and Mr. Harriman ought to bo congratulated, as well as Mi1. Markham, because it is through just such men as Markham that these great properties are saved from unfriendly legislation, and gen eral public enmity all along the line. Threw His Rider. John Simpkins, who resides near Lincoln, met with an accident last Saturday evening, which might have resulted seriously. Mr. Simpkins had ridden a young horse to Salom that afternoon, and was returning home in the fierce storm that was raging. In some manner the oil coat, which the rider was wearing, slapped against the sides of the horse, causing it to take fright and throw its rider. The fall caused Mr. Simpkins to lose con sciousness, besides breaking his arm and skinning his face somowhat. Nothing has been heard of the horse. Salem Journal. S. H.
