her story, her mother was married to
Jay Gould In New York in 1853, and

A fire in Portland, last Sunday, de
stroyed the Pacific coast w neat ele
vator, ' warehouse and contents, the
.railroad coal bunkers and content, a
vast stretch of wharves, sixty or more
freight cars and wheat contents, a
-number of cars containing a part of the
great plant of the Portland General
JSlectrlo Co., about four miles of rail
road trackage, and the river steamer
Willamette Chief. The conflagration
-consumed in round numbers $1,000,000
worth of property. It was pretty fully
.covered by insurance. The fire depart
ment could do little or nothing to Stay
the progress of the flames, - and they
completely devoured ' everything in
their path, and subsided only from
lack of material. The origin of the fire
Is not definitely known. The disaster
was altogether the most serious that
has visited Portland since the great fire
' of August 2, 1873. ' ;
Boycotting fourth-class postmasters
had become quite common In Penn
sylvania till the assistant postmaster
general stopped it by discontinuing the
offices. The most flagrant case is re
ported from LaPlume, Lackawanna
-county, Pa. When the term of the re
publican postmaster expired a few
months ago,, the only democrat in
town, a farmer who lived on the out
skirts of the village, was appointed to
the place. His predecessor, in addition
-to being postmaster, carried on an ex
tensive business in which a great deal
-of advertising was necessary. He dis
tributed thousands of circulars dally
through the mails, and in that way In
creased the ' revenues of the office so
that it was made an office with a sala
ry fixed at $1,300 per annm. , As soon
as he lost the office be bought bis
stamps elsewhere and mailed bis cir
culars at another office, reducing his
successor's compensation . to $300 per
year. The boycott did not stop there.
.Every republican in town took up the
light, and it went so for that the dem
ocratic postmaster was not able to rent
a room for the post office When As
sistant Postmaster General Jones was
advised of the situation be ordered the
office to be discontinued.. Now the
republican patrons are sending peti
tions to the department to re-establish
the post office.
General James A. Varney, who died
at Oakland, Oregon, September 20th,
was born in Maine in 1825. In 1861 he
was appointed chaplain of the Seventh
Maine regiment and served in all the
battles and engagements of the Pen
insula campaign under General Mc
Clellan. At the close of the war he re
turned to Maine, where be spent sev
eral years in business pursuits, leaving
that state in 1877 to engage in the sheep
business in Oregon with his brother-in-law,
Thomas S. Lang of The Dalles.
In 1882 he sold his flocks and moved to
'The Dalles, where he resided ten years.
In 1891 be became a member and man
ager in charge of the Chenowith Park
Association, a corporation owning sev
eral thousand acres of orchards and
Vineyards In the vicinity of Oakland.
General Varney was a member of the
Trinity Commandery of Knights Tem
plars of Augusta, Me., a member of the
Loyal Legion, and in 1890 was com-
Wander of the depaj-trHcnJ of Oregon,
Grand Army of the Republic. For
years he was a member of the Oregon
state Itoard of horticulture and was
high authority on all questions con
nected with the fruit Industry. .The
following tribute , to his memory from
the Times-Mountaineer can be sub'
scribed to by all who knew him in this
section: "General Varney's life was re-
mark-ably pure, blameless and useful,
and wherever be sojourned his neigh
bors became his warni and admiring
friends. .Although he had almost
reached the mark or three score yeans
and ten, his manner of life bad been so
temperate and correct that his appear
a nee was that of a man under 50, and
his bearing erect and soldierly."
'. The democracy of New' York nomi
nated Senator Hill for governor by
s acclamation against his repeated and
persistent declinations. On the roll
call for nomination, after all other can
ldates had been withdrawn In favor of
Hill, Bourke Cockrau interrupted by
springing on a table and thundering
out: "All who are in favor of the nom
ination by acclamation will say 'Aye.' "
There was a mighty shout, and to the
same summons for ' those ' opposed,
"No," there was not ft , voice heard,
Then, turning to Senator Hill, who
was chairman of the convention, he
said: "Sir, the people summon you to
your duty." It is wounderful what
a hold this man has upon the democ
racy and the people of the , Empire
state. The platform adopted endorses
the Cleveland administration and de
nounces the income tax. Hill may be
elected -governor of New York In
November, but his boom for the presi
idency will get no further. ' The West
and South will nominate the next can
didate, and these sections will send
solid delegations to the national con
vention against David B. Hill..

Editor Glacier: Since the vex
atious berry crops, along with the high
hopes which they early inspired, have
again vanished into the where, oh
where? and the mightiest flood that
has rolled down the Columbia for the
past age, together with many of the
sedate calculations of men, have again
found their way to the sea; and the
long autumnal evenings having again
put in their appearance, '. shortening
somewhat the hours of labor, we sug
gest that you appoint about next Fri
day or Saturday night for the reopen
ing of our literary exercises at the
school house In district No. 2. Such
societies, if properly carried on, are a
real benefit to a "community, bright
ening up and electrifying all who take
part in or attend . them. And as tbey
lead to the study and perusal of books,
an4 ; to connected thinking, they
broaden one's views and are a real
means to the acquisition of knowledge
and to social good fellowship generally.
And the rural toiler who, after his long
summer of .wearing and monotonous
labor, is too stupid or too cranky to
find any pleasure or recreation in such
entertainments, deserves to ' live in a
rat-hole all his life. .
The school children delight in such
occasions for speaking pieces, singing,
etc; the young men for the opportu
nities afforded them for taking their
sisters (of somebody else's) out for a
walk or a drive, and also for pluming
their half-fledged wings in the debate,
preparatory to their more daring flights
that are shortly to take, place in the
halls of congress. The young ladies
like to come, to read, to sing, and to
why, because other people come, of
course. The married ladies come for
recreation and for the great amusement
of hearing the men make spread eagles
of themselves. The married men
well, judging by a single specimen, I
should say that they too long to be
again in the : arena contesting the
ground with a stubborn opponent, and
revealing to their amazed and astonish
ed hearers the fact that a great genius
may be hid beneath the rustic garb of
an insignificant farmer. . Yes, truly,
the chronic old grumbler who would
fail to find any pleasure or recreation
in all this deserves to nass his life in a
rat-hole. .. Tedhick. '
'A Success. :
The sociable given by W. P. Watso'i j
and family last Monday evening was
all that one could wish for. The house
was beautifully decorated; the walls
were completely covered with dahlias,
roses and other flowers. The tables
were a thing of beauty. The lunch
was simply sumptuous; there was no
end to cake and melons and fruit. The
speaking and singing were excellent,
and all went home feeling that they
had spent a pleasant evening and that
Mr. Watson's family knew just how to
eutertaiu. The receipts were $7.25.

; sThis is the way the wheat market is
in Pendleton according to the East
Orgonlan: "Wheat is worth less than
twenty-five cents a bushel in , this
county and some grades, last year's
wheat, is selling as low as fifteen cents
a bushel. This naturally discourages
the producers, and we expect to see
wheat production hereabouts decrease
fully fltty per cent. The farmers would
have been better off if they had produc
ed none this year." , -

The Power of. the Press.
Colonel Pat Douan is temporarily re
siding in New York. To a correspond
ent of the J3t. Louis Republic he ex
pressed his views on the power of the
press: ' ; ;
"We speak of England, France, Ger
many, Russia and the United States as
the 'great powers,' " said he, "but
among all the powers of earth the press
stands . easily first and greatest. If
every journalist fully appreciated his
power and his responsibility, and every
journal were known, to. be absolutely
truthful, honest, fearless and incor
ruptible beyond the reach of wheed
ling bribery, or intimidation; wearing
the dog collar of no partyf section, sect
or faction; patriotic .and nonpartisan;
always for the right and against the
wrong a union of all the newspapers
would be the highest terrestrial illustra
tion of omniscience and omnipotence.
"Such a combination could overturn
any principality, throne or dominion
under heaven, as a herd of Texas steers
might upset a child's array of tiny tin
soldiers. . It could establish and main
tain any sstem, cause, creed or insti
tution the editors chose to support.
"Civilization culminates in the power-press,
and the bounds of civilization
are limited by the circulation of the
daily papers. There is no civilized
speech nor language where their voice
is not heard or their influence is not
felt. A few weeds soaked in bilge wa
ter, or a little calomel rolled in sweet
ened dough, with plenty of printer's
ink, will make a millionaire of any
pauperistic quack-in five years, whether
it is the brains, hearts, livers, lungs,
kidneys or gizzards of newspaper read
ers his humbug panacea claims to re
generate. ! I ',,)-r,
"A few thousand acres of iron, coal
or timber, a fair flatboat harbor, or two
or three intersecting railroads, with
reasonable circumjacent possibilities
and abundant advertising will builda
city out of nothingness anywhere in a
decade There is no enterprise or busi
ness, benefaction or villainy that can
not be pushed into triumph, or driven
to failure, by the newspapers.., Great
reputations are. created by them out of
nothing and wrecked by them for
amusement. In this country govern
ors, senators and even presidents are
made by them often out of material
intended for tinkers and peddlers, base
ball players, gamblers, shysters, pick
pockets and thugs.". 'i
i ; ; ' Another Railroad.
Another railway scheme is in con
templation which may yeld quicker
and better results for the people of
Goldendaie and this valley than the
Vancouver and Yakima. That is an
electrlc'road to be built up the Klick
itat river, with feeders to extend to
Goldendaie and other Important points.;
The principal shipping trade of the
road, besides the passenger traffic,
which would be considerable would e
in grain, lumber and wood. ,. The way
would be down grade with loaded cars,
and about all the power required would
be a sufficient quantity to return the
empty cars. . Mr. .Nesbitt received a
letter a few days ago that gives positive
information that the road will be built
just as soon as the locks are completed.
From all reports It it pretty , certain
that the locks will be in use in less
than a year, and if all, works as ex
pected the people of Goldendaie may
soon hope to be connected with the
outside world. Goldendaie Sentinel.
; A Vanishing Army.
An entire army corps has disappeared
from the ranks of ths Grand Army
within the past year. From 397,223 in
1893, the membership of the order Haa
fallen . to 309,034. The i decline be
gan two years ago, and is expected to
continue steadily until the last old sol
dier has laid down his arms. But the
prospect is one which the veterans can
contemplate without gloom. Theirs Is
not the case of an ordinary decaying
society, declining in numbers through
bad management or lack of interest.
Death alone thins the ranks of the
Grand Army. As the numbers grow
less, the pride and . enthusiasm grow
greater. , When there were four hun
dred thousand men wearing it the
bronze button might not have, been
considered a supremely high distinc
tion, but as the honor becomes rarer it
will be more intensely prized. There
is one member of the Grand Army now
to every two hundred inhabitants of
the United States. Ten, years hence
there may not be more thau one to a
a thousand. In that time, when the
old soldiers are no longer courted by
politicians and tempted to turn their
glory into coin, they wll constitute as
near an approach as we shall have or
ought to have to an aristocracy, San

The Nnw Fenal Settlement Which Win
Succeed Siberia.
A St. Petersburg letter says' that it
has been decreed by the-czar's- govern
ment that Siberia is too good for con
victs, and as soon as the neW Trans
Siberia railway has penetrated its
gloomy depths it will be turned into a
"paradise" for agricultural settlers and
mining1 sharps, while nihilists and oth
er refractory members of Russian soci
ety will in the future be accommodated
on the island of Sagahlin, off the coast
of Russian Manchuria, the eastern ter
minus cf the czar's possessions, north
of Japan.' So revolting and horrible to
civilized nations is Sagahlin that the
czar consented to its adoption as an
open air prison only after the assassi
nation of Carnot and the discovery of
the recent plots against his own life.
The people and the convicts of Siberia
never speak of the island cher than
"the hell of Saghalin," and its climate
is said to be so much worse than that
of Siberia as to rob this appellation of
an exaggerated character, even in the
mouths of these lost ones. The island
is separated from the main land by the
Gulf of Tartary, and its -eastern coast
is washed by the Sea of Okhotsk. The
governor of Manchuria has reported
that a human being not born on the
island cannot live moro than a year
there. There is no means of escape ex
cept in the winter, when, if a prisoner
can manage to make his way one hun
dred miles north from the prison, it is
possible to reach the main land over
the ice. The ice bridge is guarded;
still, two or three prisoners have es
caped by dodging behind masses of
snow and ice, or, what is far more prob
able, by bribing officials. At the pres
ent moment the most interesting colo
nist of Sagahlin is Sophia Bluh stein, a
f ull-bloofled Russian, in spite of her
German name. She first achieved crim
inal renown by pressing her attentions
upon the shah of Persia during the
latter's visit to St. Petersburg. Sophie
had avowedly no intention of adding
his majesty to her list of admirers, but
sought his acquaintance merely for the
purpose of relieving him, if possible, oi
some of his diamonds. . She was foiled
in her efforts, but succeeded in having
her private car attached to the shah't
special train. For this piece of enter
prise she Svas banished to Siberia for a
year, and while there organized a band
of cutthroats and robbers whose ser
vices she controlled on the continent
after their terms had expired. She i.
said to be the sharpest criminal living,
and in sending her to Saghalin the Rus
sian government claims to have con
ferred - a lasting benefit upon the
wealthy classes.
A St. Louis Preacher's Plan by Which
People Will Have Some Kust. -i
A judge in Topeka has restrained a
man from playing the organ more than
one hour a day. "Blessed are thi
peacemakers." The musical publii
will never know what suffering they
inflict upon their fellow creatures wlu;
are not gifted with the deep sense o1
harmony.' . To live next door to an un:
conscious sinner Who is making maideu
efforts to writi" "iusic out of a French
horn, or to have the head of your bed
against a wall act as a sounding board
while an innocent maid in the next
house is tantalizing a piano, seem to
create the crime of justifiable profani
ty! The Topeka judge is a "Daniel
come to judgment," says Rev. John
Snyder in the" St. Louis Globe-Democrat.-
While he recognizes the necessi
ty for a certain amount of musical
practice, so that the blessing of music
shall not perish from the earth, just as
he would acknowledge the need of a
fixed amount of human suffering in the
training of barbers and dentists, yet he
has equally measured the limits of hu
man endurance, and said to the incipi
ent violinist . or ' budding organist:
"Thus far shalt ye corner and no
farther." In all seriousness, I think
that the perfection of civilization will
be reached when people shall learn the
art of living together without noise.
This is the problem that all great cit
ies must strive to solve. I would ban
ish every : bell ' from city steeples. '
Clocks and watches have made them
obsolete. I would declare that every
dog troubled with insomnia is an .un
endurable nuisance. - I would extermi
nate every cat that uttered a musical
note after ten p. m. I would relegate
to the suburbs every parrot that dis
cussed his family affairs before sunrise.
The nervous wear and tear of crowded
city life is hard enough to bear with
out these preventable troubles. In the
ideal city all those amateur pianists,
violinists and French horn blowers,
who are preparing to trouble the fu
ture generation, will be shut up in a
suburban retreat, where they can only
make each other suffer. , Brass bands
will bo taxed to the point of extermi
nation, and the only musicians permit
ted within the city limits will be those
permanently afflicted people who play
those diminutive instruments on the
street corners, which can only be heard
in the "dead waste' and middle of the
night," : on account of their constitu
tional weakness. '"These, instruments
should : be encouraged, because they
feebly represent the form and appear
ance of music "without the substance
thereof." , ' ' - - .,"
' Grim Presents for the Czar , !.
. The czar has had a good many un
pleasantnesses of late. Among a num
ber of documents awaiting his signa
ture, which had been placed on his ta
ble, says Vanity Fair, he found a sen
tence of death against the emperor of
all the Russias, to be carried out in
twenty-four hours. '. It was stamped by
the "Society for the Liberation of the
Russians," and it was impossible to dis
cover how it had found place on the
czar's table. A few days later the czar
found a skull in one of the bedrooms,
on the frontal bone of which was writ
ten "Alexander." , Gen. Tscherevin,
who is in charge of the palaces, re
cently dismissed all . of the emperor's
servants and replaced them by old
soldiers. He also made a thorough ex
amination of the palaces and grounds,
with a view of discovering any secret
passages that may exist therd, . . ,

Directions for Mixing the Acme Compound.
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 rqjxture 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 cod hot pre
ferred. Do not boil the mixture. It is then ready to apply. Be sur and
have your kettles or barrel clean (also your spraying tank'l and tree from other
mixtures, in order to avoid clogging your spraying nozzles. Do not spray when
the trees are moigt.- For Codlin 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.
