PORTLAND NOT IN IT,

Fof the HudOet.
I suppose a reasonable amount of
lying is permissible and even laudable
in a paper booming a city or town, but
who can measure the length and depth
of the whoppers that the Orcgonian, in
the interest of Portland and of course its
own interests, unblushingly publishes
and scatters broadcast every day. " 'Tis
true 'tis pity, and pity 'tis 'tis true," that
the capitalists who stay in Portland a
day or so and are wined and dined, and
with their stomachs full of company grub
and champagne that would make an an
chorite forget his churlishness, and then
driven around the city in luxurious
silken-lined carriages, upon their return
home feel it incumbent upon them as a
return for such lavish hospitality to bol
ster up the Oregon id it's exaggerations by
extravagant confirmations in the daily
papers of their ow n particular cities. I
venture to say that if these same en
thusiastic gentlemen were compelled to
live upon Front street and endure its
FOI L MALARIAL 000I1H
For even a week, or were obliged to live
for a month upon any street within half
a mile of the sluggish Willamette, they
would change their tune about its de
lightful climate, and if they could listen
to the tales of woe that the homeless,
sickly, sallow victims of malarial fever
tell about the comfortable homes they
have been lured from by the board of
immigration, which is run entirely in
the interest of western Oregon, bucked
up by the potential Oregmtiun and these
same deluded eastern capitalists, they
might alter their opinion of the "heav
enly climate, quite like Italy, you
know." (I!y, the way, the climate of
Italy in some parts is execrable ) And if
they knew that the retail merchants
were begging people to buy at cost what
they couldn't sell in the spring at a rea
sonable profit; if they would give an
audience to the persuasive drummers
who have wasted their eloquence upon
meichanls whose stores were full of last
year's goods and have deserted as rich
relatives do their poor ones, the dazzled
eyes of the eastern magnates would be
opened and they would write finis upon
their Arabian Nights stories in their
eastern homes. Portland is
A nUAllTIKI I, TOWS,
Not so huge, though, as tho census
makes it out, for one twentieth of its
inhabitants are constantly on the wing,
and many of the names of these flitters
were taken by the census enumerators.
Then again, the merchants who have
so much at stake that they desperately
linger in Portland, cherishing the for
lorn hope of better limes, might easily
swell the census by the addition of
many John Mini I lis among their em
ployees. Over my bead is a lodging
house of many rooms, the inhabitants
of which, with a few exceptions, onlv
remain several weeks, and then they
pack, their trunks, or handbags, as the
case may be, and bio them to "the
Sound." Whether they stay there is
more than I know , hut I'm certain that
they leave Poitlaud never to return un
less they hare to pass through on the
way back to their former homes in the
east. Very frequently these flitters ar
rive in carriages, but they invariably
leave in the street cars or on foot. 1
don't want to be doleful, but it is pit
iful to see bo many
It is useless to say that the energetic,
plodding, tenacious people never fail of
meeting with success. We all know
among our acquaintances men and
women who have stiiven so hard to
reach the goal of their ambition that
stiength and life gave out ere they could
grasp the top round; a blight coming
over their prospects, and for some rea
son they wilted just as roses Bometimes
do after giving promise of a perfect
blossoming. And then they think "per
haps thev did not enrich the ground
enoiiih, or pin haps did not water them
enough ;" for, man alone, in spite of
Ins boasted strength, must have some
lever, some sustenance, or his best en
dcavoia will blight just as the roses do;
for just as fertilizers and moisture assist
the uneeu of fioweis to her regal glorv.
just so important are the levers of iin-
poitnnt liiemls and good opportunities.
So if Ihe tenacious toiler never is able
to giasp these levers, the time must
come when they will falter and fail. If
the toiler is an ordinary man he will
blow his brains out and go out in smoke
to blissful mice' taint v ; but if the victim
of unrequited labor is an extraordinary
woman, she will liopctullv toil till the
dear recipients of her self-sacrifice fondly
close her eyelids and robe her, like a
Imde, for her glorious (male, "Where
the wicked cease bom troubling and the
weary are at rest."
" SLATE WRITERS."
Portland is garnering an unusually
large crop of "slate writers," but no one
seems to get any communications except
gullible believers. Recognizing the fact
I li.it so many women work for their i
"protectors" for (as Susan It Anthony
says) "their boaid ami lodging," the
"fair sex" are onlv charged a dollar.
w hile the gentlemen have to pay double
that amount. A lady tnend of mine,
w ho has ii not unusual habit of calling
her husband "pa," asked her departed
baby son if "pa" had better go to Paget
sound or slay here. Naturally, the me
dium thought the question was ad
dressed to a dead brother, and the
answer came: "No; tell our father to
stay here and keep on communicating
with me at two dollars a visit. I'll
give him good advice." (Signed)
"Brother." And then underneath ap
pealed the picture of a middle-aged
1(140 With I'ing bard f opposed to he
likeness of the spirit brother. But this
communication was nothing to that re
ceived bv a ladv whose only marriage
I occurred late in life, several years ago.
It was from her son, who-was supposed
to have departed at the age of nine, so
long ago that he described himself as a
man, and gave his mother good advice,
as precocious youths will do on occa
sion, lint the
" TIIBOSOI'IIISTS "
Take the cake. The other evening I sat
alongside one of them, a woman weigh
ing over two hundred, and certainly not
suggesting anything very ethereal, with
a pronounced moustache on her upper
lip, who, to my frank confession that I
didn't exactly understand what a The
osophist was, informed me it was ar
riving at a condition w here one's soul
wiib merged in that of (jod. "We ac
cept," she added, waving a huge hand
toward the lady speakers on the stage,
"these Spiritualists as a lower order
of mediums; hut not being in direct con
tact with (jod as we Thcosophists are,
of course they are infeiiors in every
way." So of course having graduated
in a higher school, she will charge much
more for her celestial messages. I wish
the opponents of woman suffrage, upon
the ground that my sex is "mentally
incapable of understanding politics,"
could see the number of bald-headed
men who are "taken in anii done for"
by these smart female knaves.
