The Oregon" Scout ys: Senator
Mitchell has introduced a bill appro-
dating $150,000 to build a Postofllcent
Salem. The Senator, like the rest of
his party, Is in fivor f getting rid of
the surplus. 8atem litis about n-s much

tons, which being taxed $17 per ton
duty amounts to $2,535,000. The aver
age life of a steel rail is 10 years, which
divided into f 2,203,000, shows that over

Hon. Binger Hermann, Oregon's
congressman, is a trump. He has the
gratitude and thanks of the people of
Lake county for his untiring and un
ceasing efforts In our behalf. He is a
"stayer," and dou't know how the
word, fail, is spelled. We like him,
and believe that he should be encour

' A Washington correspondent asserts
that indications are not wanting that a
strong Mormon lobby is at work to se
cure the admission of Utah as a state
at this session of congress. No oppo
sition of consequence is expected, ex
cept in the senate, and repulliTU sen
ators from the Pacific coast are counted
upon to support the bill. If this
scheme is attempted the Mormons will
simply findout that they have eounted
without their host.
Senator Vest, of Missouri, in his
speech opposing the Blair educational
bill, argues that crime and illiteracy do
not go together. To show this he com
pares southern with southern and
northern with northern states, deem
ing that a fair way, and somewhat ad
roitly makes a specious showing; but it
appears by an analysis of the question
on a fair basis, that crime does bear a
close relation to illiteracy. If it does
not, our millions spent for education
had better lie diverted to some other
and more profitable use.
At the present time organized labor
seems to be its own worst enemv,
fc?ucii organizations may be useful and
helpful, but when a few men can take
it upon themselves to say when thous
ands of other men shall or shall hot
work, it is time for those who respect
themselves to resist. If there is ever a
time to strike, it is certainly not when
snow covers the earth and biting winds
blow over empty flour barrels and
small piles of coal. The Heading
strike, by which nothing was or Mill
lie gained, is an illustration and is sure
ly the beginning of the end of the
Knights of Tabor as a potential factor
in directing the labor interests of the
country. This will also probably mark
the removal of Powderly as a factor in
the labor problem, besides convincing
many people that no wrong exists, that
labor centralization will not exagger
ate. ABRAHAM LINCOLN ON TEM
PERANCE. In our contest with the liquor traffic,
we should be encouraged by the vrews
of great and noble men. We therefore
publish Lincoln's own words on the
curse of alcohol:
Of our political revolution of 1776 we
are justly proud. It has given us a de
gree of political freedom far exceeding
that of. any other nation of the earth."
In it the world has found a solution of
the long-mooted problem as to the cap
ability of man to govern himself. In
it was the germ that Vegetated, and
still is to grow and expand into uni
versal liberty of mankind.
Turn now to the temperance revolu
tion. In it w-e shall find a stronger
bondage broken, viler slavery commit
ted, a greater tyrant deposed; in it,
more of want supplied, more disease
healed, more sorrow assuaged. By it
no orphans starving, no widows weep
ing; by it, none wounded m feeling,
none injured in interest-; even the dram
maker and dram-seller will have glided
into other occupations so gradually as
never to have felt the change, and will
stand ready to join all others in the
universal song of gladness. And what
a noble ally this to the cause of politi
cal freedom! With such an aid its
march can not fail to be on and on, till
every son of earth shall drink in rich
fruition the sorrow-quenching draugltts
of perfect freedom. Happy day when, !
all appetites controlled, all matter sub- j
jeeted, mind, all-conquerable mind,
shall live and move the monarch of the j
world! Glorious consummation! Hail,;
fall of furyt Iicign of reason, all hail!

There were two trains waiting for
the special on the side track at Mor
loy's. The engineers, conductors, brakemen
and firemen had deserted their charges
and were gat Wertnl in a little group be
neath the trees beside the station.
The two ejigincs, so elosely together
that their pilots almost touched, were
softly purring to themselves, niugnlH
ceut illustrations of dormant power.
"Them two engines standin' so close
together," remarked Kngineer Jim
Thomas, "reminds me of a little hap

"Well, go on and tell us about It,"
remarked the conductor, "you know

"Well, it's somethln' I don't teli

either, for it's true just the name."
"Frank La r kin used to be my fire
man in those days, and together we
did keep the No. 262 lookin pretty
bright, and got some mighty good time
out of her, too.
"One season we used to bring up the
limited every other night and run back
on accommodations. 'Twas a sort of
split up run, but it was the best-we
could do then, and we had to be satis
fied. . "The limited had to do some all fired
good runnin to make her con netrt ions,
and we used to have to watch every
hook and crook to keep from being de
layed any. But Frank was a good one
to make steam, and we took consider
able pride in keeping up to schedule
time. Well, one night, as we was go-
-' in' round the Big Tree curve between
Liimont ami tiarianus, rranR was
shoveling coal down from tiie ton of
the big pile in the tender. Just as we
rounded the curve I heard a terrible
shriek. I looked around, and Frank
was gone. He had forgotten to brace
himself for the curve, and had been
dashed from the tender to' the ground.
"I stopix-d, ran back, and found poor
Frank lying beside the track, apparent
ly dead. We put him in the baggage
car and took him home; I got leave of
absence and for two weeks Frank's
wife and I watched by the bedside
where the poor lad lay delirious.
"The doctors said from the first he
couldn't get well; most we could hope
for was that his mind would clear up
enough so he could recognize us before
he died; but the boy lay there and rav
ed, and screamed, and talked to him
self, and was all the time rlaggin' trains
and firm' up, and livin' over the aw
ful fall; but though his poor little wife
most cried her pretty eyes out. Frank
would only stare at her with wild'
glassy eyes, and motion her away,
when she would speak to him, and call
him pet names, and try so hard to
arouse a spark of recognition.
"Well, one night I had sent the Joor
wcrnout little woman to lied, Frank
was rambling along in his usual way,
but did not rave quite so much as
usual. He lay quiet a long time, and
I had almost got to nodding in my
chair, when he suddenly says quite nat-

through don't forget me I'll watch
over you and the old 262 as long as you
bang together. Good -bye. Now call
Lizzie, my darling "
"I ran from the room, but when I
got back there wa'nt nuthin' for that
poor little heart-broken creature to look
at, but jest the dead body of one of the
noblest boys the Ixrd ever nipped ofl

"Well, we laid Frank away, and 1
liad the old 2R2 draped in black for
months. I had another fireman as
signed me, and though he did as well
as he could, he never could be quite
the same to me as poor dead Frank.
"One night we was bringin' up the
limited as usual, and, of course, had
the right of the road. Xothin' seemed
to work right that night someway; we
started out late, and then the engine
acted up and wouldn't make steam
good, and we didn't make up a minute,
though we pushed the old engine for
all she was worth.
All through the run there had been
some things on my mind that made
me feel blue, a sort of foreboding of
trouble. When we left Lamnnt we
had made up aoout five minutes, and I
prepared to rush things. Just as we
were pulliu' out, tlte operator handed
me an order not to pass Uralands until
light engine No. 393 arrived, and then
we lit out for all we was worth. Rut
some way I felt uneasy every time I
would pull the lever to let her out a
peg, though there wa'nt no particular
reason for it.
"Just the same, wc was streakin'
along nigh unto fifty, miles an hour !
when we went to the Rig Tree curve.
I don't know what made me look
around, but something did, and I hope
I may never make another run, if there
didn't stand Frank on the pile of coal
in the tender, looking straight at me as
natural as life.
"I almost jumped oflTrny seat in the
cab, when in an instant he threw up
bis hands, and fell off with that same
awful shriek he gave on the night he
was killed. Involuntarily I threw the
engine over, and turned on the brakes,
and not a darn second too soon either,
for when we got around the curve then
was the headlight of that 393 onlj
altout two train lengths away, and by
the time we could stop the pilots was
as nigh together as them are out there.
About as close as ever I want to have.
"The operator had made a mistake
on the light engine's order, and written
Iamont instead of Garlands.
j . "My fireman said he didn't see or
i hear anything of the form on the ten
der, but I know it was Frank just the
i same, and I know he came to warn me
of danger, and I know he 1s watchin' t
over me all the time, and I feel safe
when I pull out sharp on a nasty night,
