Hood Elver, which last year did not
' hare in the general loss of Eastert
Oregon, is having her slwe this year
Than it was the wheat crop and the
wool clip that suffered,' and we were
not In it. Our berry crop was first
-class and the prices good Our apple
wnd other fruit crops were as good a9
we had ever had, and much larger; our
jcordwood, everv cord that was cut and
hauled, sold fur good prices, and for
A'USU. mis year.it was uuv uiai wnjr.
crop suffered from unusal frost, which
took the earliest berries, and another
which injured those maturing a little
Inter. These losses were borne with
reasonable cheerfulness, because they
are of the things to be expected. Our
.crowning loss is the calamity that has
befallen the Union Pacific, shutting us
off from our markets, Our berriesare
rotting on '"the i vines, a wealth of lus
.ciousness, representing - whole lots of
toil and care on the one haud and $60,
(000 on the other; ,3000 bjjf $20 pieces.

we will recover. ';' It presses on ' us all,
nd so is of the common lot. We will
recover from it because we are as u
community young and strong and vig
orous; because time cures all and heals
All wouuds, as the green griun hides the
mark of shot and shell, creeps over the
upturned furrow and rounds, softeus
nnd beautifies What accident or ' ruth-
: lessness has left too harsh. With a de
termination not to be i downed, but
with a fresher energy, let us go to work
to regain that we have lost, standing
by one .another, assisting each other to
j)ull up and out, and in a few months
we will laugh at the idea that we tool?
the matter seriously.: We have run up
jigainst Kismet and got a bruise we
jcould not avoid. The summer prom
ises to be a fair one, considerable prop
erty will chauge hands, and money
" twill be again circulating among us.
We do riot pretend to be stuck on the
situation,' but, at least, we see no rea
jsan to cry. It is our misfortune, some
thing human foresight could neither
foresee nor guard against. ' So, like
Bryan said to Moore: -
, " Here's A slgtyfor tljose that love mo,
. . And a smile for those that hal e; '
And whatever sky'g above me,
ilefo'sa heart for any fate,"
. AN OBJECT : LESSON.
. Unles$wo,!.pan ship, our, berrjes by
Doat, maKing tne transier at xne
Dalles, there is no possibility of getting
rid of them except by boat to Portland.
The Union Pacific can do nothing to
wards repairing the line . until ."the
water goes down, and that will be at
least a ' month; and more likely six
weeks. If the road is in running order
n three months from now, the man
jagers will have done exceptionally
. good work. In the meanwhile those
: of us who are disposed to find fault
- with the railroad company can study a
little on the' object lesson Ve have had.
It is easily to be seen that there is at
least one greater evil than a ' railroad,
and that is ho railroad. We have beeu
prone to find fault with the time table,
the service and the charges, yet all of
us would gladly have paid a much
larger charge than we have been doing,
And get up in the middle of the night
to do it, if by so doing we oould have
ineoia u. r. going again, itie most
pleasant music this community will
have' this summer will be the shrill
whistle of the engines on the railroad.
' "We would gladly turn out With a brass
band now to welcome the, advent of a
through train, but alas! the railroad is
not. Trestles and bridges are gone,
and our loss is but a dro in the bucket
compared to that of the Union Pacific.
That the road may soot)' again be in
running order is the wish of every
DEMOCRACY DOWNED, '
The returns are in and democracy is
-pot in itprotrrc-WascoTuWyr arfy
way. . The indications am .that every
man on the state ticket has been elect
ed. In this county the democrats elect
a constable in Wamlc. So democrats
can console them'sojves with the reflec
tion that "it might have been worse."
It is perhrps useless to inquire into the
cause, since no matter what it was the
result is accomplished. Briefly stated,
it was caused by superlative foolish-
neeson the part of congress, exalted
ftsininity on the part of the senate, and
pertinacious bull-headed selfishness on
the part of the president. Grover for
got that a portion of the United States
lay west of Washington, . With a tariff
on sugar and wool on the free list, the
hands of Oregon's democracy were tied.
The result is just what should have
been expected, and we deserved it. The
result in Oregon is the reiteration of
the result in every other state that has
Jield an election since democracy got
Into the saddle, The next congress
will be republican, the next senate will
probably In republican, but it is doubt
ful if the next, president will be. 'If
times grow better, which they should,
regardless of who goes into power or
which policy is pursued, the republi
cans will go tjaqk Into power and elect
their president. If no speedy relief
comes and times do not grow better, i
the republicans will meet another Wa
terloo. The people vote against re
sults, not eauses, . and the next presi
dent will depend on the condition of
the eountry. ''" ' '' .'.' ;
i The Flood at Portland. '
Tuesday's Orc.qouian . says: , The
street were livelier yesterduy, and
there was actually a greater volume of
business than on. any day since the
first overflow was recorded. The pre
vailing opinion during the past week
has been that the flood must soon reach
its full height; but now all hope that
the end will come "tomorrow or the
next day" has been abandoned, and
people are ready to move to their house
tops at a momeut's notice. The streets
had the appearance of a May moving
day. r Rafts, flat boats' and pluugers,
piled high with furniture, merchandise,
showcases, boxes, etc., were paled or
towed through the streets to the water's
edge, where their loads were, transfer
red to drayB .for transportation to higher
ground. The crush of boats at Third
and Washington streets was wonderful,
auU- the situatiow-M First and Morrison
was scarcely less so. Rowing at those
points was out of the question, so boats,
were poled along or towed by men
wading waist deep in the water.
Planked street crossings were provided
with , draws, whitU ' could - be easily
opened by passing boatmen. An ele
vated crosswalk on Third mid Wash
ington is six feet .in height, so that
boats can easily pass under it, and the
necessity of opening the "draw" every
time a boat wants to pass is done away
with " '';' .
The construction of elevated side
walks, which was discontinued over
Sunday, went forward again yesterday
with a rush. The situation demanded
it, for the flotilla of small boats were
unable to handle the crowd Awaiting
transportation from one poiut to an
other in the flooded district. , During
the fire on the water front it was im
possible to rent an entire boat at any
price, so great was the rush., Scores of
boat carpenters , are working almost
night and day to fill orders which are
continually pouring in from all sides.
Small, cheap boats of unseasoned fir
are turned out by the score, and are
just as mucn a source of revenue to
their owners as those which jost fancy
prices'" During the past few days the
fleet on the river has multiplied three
fold. Fish boats and ship boats from
down the rjver command high prices
ks freighters. It is, a novel sight to
stand at the corner of Third and
Washington streets and see the fleet
stationed there. The boatmen Jostle
and pushabb"ufJ"Eu all goodTtiaturedly.
There Is business for all, and plenty of
it. It may be said now, without ex
aggeration,, that the entire wholesale
portion of the city is inundated, and
fully seven-eighths of the retail district.

The election in Hood River passed
offquietly and a full vote was polled.
In West Hood River precinct 227 votes
were cast. Only two voters besides
several aged and infirm, required as
sistance in preparing their ballots. Not
a "wholly defective" ballot was cast,
but probably ten voters failed to scratch
enough , names from the eight can
didates for representative, and lost their
votes for this part of the ticket. It was
a mistake to print the ballots with the
legislative1 candidates divided, four at
the bottom of the first column and four
at the top of the second- Had they all
been placed together in the same col
umn there might have been no loss.
East Hood River cast 139 votes. .

and West Hood River precincts, repub
lican candidates are printed first, dem

The Railroad Situation, j.
The Union Pacific road in Oregon iB
in- a most deplorable condition, and
the damage will amount to hundreds
of thousands of dollars. At the' Cas
cades reliable reports show the road
practically washed out of existence.
From ; the Locks to Bonneville the
seething torrents have eaten away the
noted sliding mountain untiljjot a
vestage of railroad track or wagon road
remains. In one place the inroad on
the land will exceed a hundred feet,
leaving an almost perpendicular cliff
nearly 200 feet high. From the 'Cas
cades to Hood River the road bed is iti
good shape now, but there is no telling
how long it ; will remain so. From
Hood River to The Dalles many bridge's
have been carried away bodily. - Above
The Dalles no reliable informatiou can
be had, but all reports show great dam
age, The outlook " now is gloomy
enough, and it may be many months
before railroad communication ;with
the outer world is re-established. "v'

Directions for Mixing
.' Weigh out ten pounds of the Compound and put it in a barrel or large ket
tle; then pour on five gallons of boiling water gradually, until the mixture is of
the consistency of soft soap stirring it all the time. After it: is thoroughly
dissolved add the balance of the water (forty-five gallons), hot or cold hot pre
ferred. Do not boil the mixture. It is then ready to apply. B Be sure and
have your kettles or barrel clean (also your spraying tank) and free from other
mixtures, in order to avoid cloggmgyour spraying nozzles. Donot spray when
the trees are moist. For Codliu .Moth use No. 2. and spray immediately after
the blossoms drop, then again four weeks after, which will destroy all other in
sects that may appear. Apply by means of a spray pump or a florist's syringe;
