I HA I Is rather a bro.id statement which

clares that American genius lias blaed

I HAT was a sensible interview with J. '
I . hngllsli which was published in the
Portland lelegrain Saturday,' In which he
pointed out the nerve of hoards ol trade, I
and others, who expect mine owners to'
1 "fall over each other" in their anxiety to"
auoininod.tle them in supplying valuable I
gold specimens for exhibition. !
IHAI brave American soldier, G. ,
Hudson, who was killed in Hie Philio
pines and buried last week at San l;ran ' I
iko, was a souol J. Nat Hudson, for!
meriy tu Mimpter, and a brother of Mrs.
Phllbrlck. He was widely and favorably
Known an inrouu 1 this ski mi ni

death is mourned by many
Till: San Francisco Mining and ScTe'iT'
tilic Press declares that thediscovery of the
claityde process of extracting gold Is the
cause which led to the present .var be
tween England and the Dutch republic In
South Alrica. Few doubt that gold In the
Hand Is thr moth c which actuates Eng
land in prosecuting the war. These ores
were not profitably worked until the
ilauyde process was introduced there.
I he yearly output now Is about a hundred
EVERY nrtery in a persons hand is
there for one purpose, and only one. That
purpose Is 10 gather up the blood from
every extremity of the hand, and return it
to the heart. Portland should be to the
state of Oregon what the heart is to the
Individual the center around which life
revolves. If the arteries cease to bring
the blood back to the heart, the result is
Inevitable death. This Is as surely true
of Portland, though not to the same ex
tent. Break the natural connection be
tween Portland and the state at large,
and there would be no cause for her ex
istence. Tap the arteries and the veins
half way, and turn back Um vital tide,
and Portland loses half her inheritance
nni) half her glory. Oregonlan.
To change this labored metaphor to plain
speech; if Portland should lose the trade
of Oregon, Its name would .be Dennis.
On the other hand, "tap the arteries and
veins half way," and after a little com
mercial rearrangement, the rest of the
state wouldn't notice the difference. Port
land is not only not the metaphorical heart
of the state, it has none of its own and
not much of a head. It is purely a com
mercial town, made so by necessity, with
out any effort of its own. The rich trade
from the gold fields of eastern Oregon
which it now receives, was called into ex
isteuce by tlte enterprise of men from other
cities. Our gold ledges would "have re
1 mained undeveloped a thousand years
hence had it depended on Portland people.
i Today if a mining proposition Is placed
hefore these Portland merchants who are
filing goods in Sumpter, they become
suspicious .ind act as if the promoter were

ire forced to buy goods th:re, and wish
with all our heart that the veins and ar
terirs would be "tapped."
IT IS announced that Portland Is finally
to have a smelter that is, Portland pa-
pers state that the thing Is "fixed." Some
,. ., .t

people will subscribe $30,000 towards the
