France discriminates against our corn
ind excludes our pork on the hyitothe
aia that our pork might bo unhealthy ;
then acknowledges in Its own Chamber
jf Deputies that their winos are adulter
ated and dangerous to the public health.
Now, in all fairness, why should we not
exclude their wines, which they admit
to be adulterated and dangerons, unlet
they remove tho restrict!?" on our com

Carolina and Ohio a chance?
Special Agent Leland lias telegraphed
the census oiiice that it had been dis
covered that tho state census of Oregon
in 1S35 had been erronously published.
It had been found that tlio ligcrea given
were about -10,000 too large. When the
correction was made tho present census
returns did not on their face appear ro
glaringly in error. Mr. Leland believed
that if tho real figures for 1SS5 had been
known at the start ihe kick from Ore
gon would not have been made eo ig-orously.
A new industry has been started in
Portland by Trescott & Company, in the
old ice house on Corbelt etreet. It is
the packing of "Columbia River Stur

ceived there and placed in salt and ice
until frozen. It is then packed in boxes
holding nbout 250 pounds and shipped
in sawdust to Chicago and New York to
be prepared for the market there by be
ing canned, smoked or dried, as may be
desired. At the present time alnmt
forty carloads have been tent east.

of Winchester bay, who whs in this eit

It is calculated that the now bridge
over tho Hudson at New York, which
will be the greatest engineering feat of
the century, will cost about $t0,00d,O0O,
