SHUT OUT THE SLAVS.
Where ia the end going to be and
through what channels will it be
reached? - This is a question every
American citizen, whether native born
or naturalized, may well ask himself as
he reads the dispatches concerning the
labor riots in the East. The fight is
not now between labor and capital; it
baa come to that stag where it is a
fight between American labor and
American 'principles, and foreign labor
and anarchy. The fact that the mine
owners are reaping what they have
.apwn is of little satisfaction, though it
is strictly true. Under the try of pro
tecting American labor, a protective
; taiff was placed upon iron and coal,
among other things, and then the coul
and iron mine owners Imported foreign
cheap labor to operate their mines. The
temporary gain became to thein a per
manent loss, for competition brought
' prices down until now American labor,
. or Intelligent labor, can hardly be
found to work the mines. The mine
owners have supplanted American lu
bof with foreign lubor of the very low
cat class, and now they must put Up
mu it. ; ine mining regions nave be
come practically foreign countries,
rbra even tne .English, language is
. ; : not understood. They have become so
4 foreign that the laws are violated and
the authorities defied. So foreign that
no later than Monday, the dispatches
tell us, a mob of Slavs captured four
American laborers, hung placards on
their backs, marched them from one of
. their camps to the other to be reviled
' and spit upon by woman and children
'who did not understand or speak the
language of this .country, and when
few of their number by officers of the
Jaw. Where will it end? We do not
.know. But if the blood in American
veins has not turned to water, it will
end in the annihilation of the lawless
mobs. It will end by Americans for

gress and a president pledged to stop
this class of immigrants from passing

that this country is an asvlum for the
downtrodden is growing obsolete. It

HOOD RIVER ALL RIGHT.
The proper way to measure one's
condition is to use that of your neigh
bors as a yardstick. By this rule Hood
River is prosperous. All that we have
lost la a portion of our berry crop, and
perhaps a portion of the price. The
Dalles has been pretty well drowned
out, suffering not only severe losses.but
a world of annoyance. Grant is de
, atroyed, swept out of existence, drown
ed. Columbus is not much better,
while every town along the river from
ita head to its mouth has had a taste of
Columbia river water. Portland has
been a sea and has suffered severely.
. With us the situation is already grow
ing decidedly brighter. Our berries
can at least find a market, and all our
other small fruits will sell. This fall,
owing to severe frosts all over the coun
try, oar apple crop should command
the best of prices. Eastern Oregon ivill
have a phenomenal crop of wheat, and
so will make a fine market for wood.
Besides all this we are going to have a
, republican congress and senate, and
good times, for the Wilson bill is suf
. fering from a severe attack of senatorial
wlndon Itslittlestomach.' Hood Ri vei
ls all right, and three months from now
' none of us will know that we ever ex
perienced any difficulty in shipping
our berries or anything else.
A Household Treasure.
D.W. Fuller of Canajoharie, N. Y.,
. aays that he always keeps, Dr. King's
2few Discovery in the bouse and his
family always found the very best re
sults follow its use; that he would not
be without it If procurable. G.A.Dyke
man, druggist, Catskill, .N. Y., says
that Dr. King's New Discovery is un
doubtedly the best cough remedy; that
be has used it in his family for eight
years, and it has never failed to do all
that (a claimed for it.
The Railroad Condition.
The prospect of rail communication
with the 'balance of humanity seems
dismal enough. -After having foryears
enjoyed the convenience 'of two mail
and passenger trains a day, to be cut
down to no trains at all and only one
steamboat, it seem a hardship indeed.
The Union Pacific commenced work at
the Cascades, on the 11th, with about
200 men, and the proposition is to rush
the portage road through as fast as men
aud money can build it. . The road
from Portland to Bonneville is not se
riously damaged, but from that place
to Coyote Station, twenty miles from
Umatilla, the , situation is serious
enough. Thousands of feet of bridges
have been carried away on the flood
and thousands more have been wrecked
though still remaining. When it is re
membered that between Portland and
The Dalles there are nearly twelve
miles of bridges, and that, with few ex
tions, all have been lifted from their
foundations aud rendered useless until
repaired, and from the . fact that most
of the bridges are built on piling, and
in many places only a little above low
water mark, and also that miles upon
miles of embankment have been washed
partially or entirely away, the serious
ness of the situation Is apparent. And
to us the situation is serious; it is more
than serious; it is a calamity. Having
passed through a year of unparalleled
business depression, looking forward to
our berry crop to pay our indebtedness
at the stores and to buy food for fam
ilies for the ensuing year, now to have
the very ground washed from under
our feet, as it were; our only available
market completely flat, with no possi
ble chance of reaching an eastern mar
ket, the berry grower can only fold his
hands and gloomily see his acres of lus
cious fruit rot on the vines, while Om
aha, Denver, Montana, and other mar
kets are clamorous for every berry we
have at richly remunerative prices. --
The following letter , from Governor
Pennoyer and resolutions by Canby
post were crowded out of last week's
issue. - It will be remembered that
Canby post requested the governor not
to talk politics at Hood River on Dec
oration day, to which, May 28th, he
made the following characteristic re
ply. . ""
"The resolution of your post was duly
received aud considered. . Although
the Savior of mankind, while on earth,
allowed on the holy Sabbath the pull
ing of an ox or an ass out of a pit, yet
your post objects to any effort on Dec
oration day sucli as the pulling out of
the pit of financial disaster the starv
ing men, women and children of our
unfortunate country. I, however, can
cel my .appointment at Hood River
pursuant to your request.
Whereas, Canby post, No. 16, G.
A. R., department of Oregon, received i
a communication from his honor Syl
vester Pennoyer, governor of Oregon,
canceling, the date of big campaign
speech here on Decoration day, May
30th, therefore be it I
Resolved, That we as r& post tender
him our thanks for his consideration of
our regard for the day that we cherish
with unfailing memory.
And be it further resolved, That we
tender to Co. D, Third regiment Na
tional Guard, our sincere regards and
thanks for their presence and assist
ance in helping' us to : decorate the
graves of our deceased comrades; and
we assure them that they, as well as
we, have reason to feel proud of their
soldierly bearing and military advance
ment. By order of the poet.

Hood River, June 6, 1894.
" Killed a Beur.
J. O. Eastman killed a large cinna
mon bear at his place Friday evening
last. The bear was first seen by Mr.
Eastman's little boy Roy, near the
barn. . Bruin was casting longing
glances toward a culf staked near the
barn and paid little attention to Mr.
Eastman when he came with a gun,
but leisurely retreated some distance
towards the brush until he found au
ant bill and proceeded to gather the
ants. Mr. Eastman waited for him to
turn his head again in the direction of
the calf and then gave him a shot
through thj heart.
The Salmon Knn. . ..
Salmon commenced running at the
Locks Tuesday, and Wednesday they
had increased in numbers until they
could be seen in countless myriads,
climbing, struggling, darting by rocks
aud leaping over obstructions. One
wheel caught two tons Tuesday night,
and all the others did as well or better.
Parties with dip nets bring up from
one to three at every haul, and every
body who can find a net is at work.
Those posted say that this is the de
layed May run, the fish being nearly
all bluebacks. They usually take a
week in making the trip to The Dalles,
and next week the harvest will com
mence there. It is indeed unfortunate
that so many wheels have gone out,
but no doubt our energetic townsmen,
the Winans Bros., will find means to
get some of them. We hope so, at
least; and that they may also be able to
get their wheels back in time to make
up for their severe losses. Euergy and
pluck should meet with success; if it
does our boys will make a killing on
the salmon yet. , ,

' Question. '
Did Adjutant Hayes have in mind
the wild charge on Pilkington's straw
berry patch of Company D, at the close
of the services at the graves on Decora
tion day, when he wrote of their "sol
dierly bearing?" '
The Winans brothers have met with
heavy losses by the unusual high wa
ters of the Columbia, which have swept
away all their fish wheels. Their
wheels stood higher water than any
previous record, but were not built to
Stand the waters of '94. However, the
boys are not at all discouraged and will
rebuild all their wheels, aud more, so
solid that they will stand even the
next flood as high as '94, although such
a flood may not be seen again during
their lifetime. They are now at work
constructing temporary wheels in order
to catch as mauy flsh out of the big
run as possible, aud will also use nets
and all possible devices. The never
ceasing energy of .these men has
brought them through many other
tight squeezes of this kiud, and they
will come through this in good shape.
They are getting out 600,000 feet of di
mension timber at Winans, at the forks
of Hood River, and will build their
wheels all anew as soon as the water
recedes sulllcieutly. With them there
is no such word as fail.

M. Hiimmerly, a well-known business man
of Jlillsboro, Va., sends this testimony to
the morits of Ayer' Sarsaparilla: "Several
years aco, I hurt my leg.-tlio injury leaving
a sore which let! to erysipelas. My sufferings
were extreme, my leg, from the knee to the
ankle, being a solid sore, which began to ex
tend to other parts of the body. After trying
various remedies, I began taking Ayer'g
Sarsaparilla, and, before I had finished the
first bottle, I experienced great relief: the
second bottle effected a complete cure."

the first ten days are the most critical In a

The mare should be fed some two or three
weeks before she is duo to foal and some time

Directions for Mixing the Acme Compound.
: Weigh out ten pounds of the Compound and put it in a barrel or large ket
tle; theu pour on five gallbns 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 bala nee of the water (forty-five gallons), hotor cold--hot pre
ferred. Do not boil the mixture. It is then ready to apply. Before and
have your kettles or barrel clean (also your spraying tank) and free from other
mixtures, in order to avoid clogging your spraying nozzles.. Do not spray when
the trees are mo ist. For Cod lin Moth uSe No. 2, and spray immediately after
the blossoms drop. then. again four weeks after, which will destroy all otfoer in
sects that may appear. Apply by means of a spray pump or a florist's fringe.
Coralitos, Cal., March 26, 1894. Watson, Erwin & Co.r I used one hundred
pounds of your Acme No. 1, and it had the desired effect: it not only gets away
with the insect but it cleans up the tree and leaves it in a healty condition. I
will guarantee it will do just what it is recommended to do. Yours truly,-
