This town of Long Creek, Oregon,

town Is without protection against Are
other than a bucket brigade, which or

OregoTrEesourees is the name of a
new paper at The Dalles. . O. D. Crane,
the editor, says the paper will be pub
lished in the interest of the immigrant,
that i' we a" twe to' as-lst Nebraska
immigrants in finding new homes, and
are working in conned Ion with the
Immigrant himself, from the lime he
arranges with our Nebraska agent for
freight aud transportation until he is
Anally settled iii Oregon or Washing'

Among the first acts of our new city
council should be an ordinance prohib
iting persons from letting their teams
stand iu the streets unhitched and un-
attended. Hood River has bad too
many runaways caused by this kind of
carelessness. Runaway teams are al
ways a source of danger to life and
property. . If a penalty was Imposed
for neglecting teams and an occasional
fine collected we might have fewer
runawaysiIt might also be we'l for
the town to have more hitching posts
erected. Hitching facilities' are' none
too good, and this may be, one reason
why so many teams are left standing
unhitched in the streets.

The legislature will meet next Mon
day. The election of senator is the all
absorbing question. Senator Dolph
lias left his work at Washington to
come all the way to Oregon to look
alter his political fences.. Some of bis
friends concede that his chances for re
election are not improved by his com
ing home at this ii me. .-'The opposition
Dolph in' his own party seeius to be
growing stronger daily, , and it now
looks' very doubtful for imperious J. N.
The republican party. In Oregon is be
ing batily split up over this eleciouof
senator, and if a state election1 was to
be held nextspring the popuPsls would
carry the stale. These republicans
who are so bitterly opposing Dolph's
re-election must be more tlian half pop
ulist, and if they had voted List June
according to their convictions, Dolph
could not now be considered as a can
didate. Our old friend, S. T. Howe, is editing
a populist paper in Texas. He is mak

A representative of the Glacier
visited Portland December 29th, ex
pecting to return on the next Thurs
day, but owing to the storm was de
tained until Monday of this week.
The storm in the Willamette valley
was more severe than here. , For twelve
miles east of Portlaud the" telegraph
and telephone poles were all blown
down. The editor of the TroMtdale
Champion speaks of the storm as a
juvenile blizzard," but we are in
clined to think he put it' a little too
modestly, for if one was to see what
damage it did to the great forest trees
ho would be sure to a. 11 it a regular
"Dakota blizzard." It commenced
snowing in Portland on Wednesday
morning and continued until 5 in the
evening, falling to the depth of fifteen
Inches. All railway traffic in the city
was stopped. .The snow turned to
sleet, which fell for about twelve hours,
causing great damage to shade, orchard
and forest trees. The next- day snow
plows were put to work on the car
lines and in a few' days the cars were
running in the regular order. Owing
to the storm, electric wires in the city
were broken, and for two nights the
city was in darkness for fear of danger
by the broken wires.
While in the city we visited the Sun
office and made the acquaintance of
Captain O'Brien, one of the editors,
Captain O'Brien introduced us to sev
eral of.the printers in the composing
room Messrs. Ed Lamb, Harry Hill,
Darr, Markland, Jones, and others
whose names we cannot now recall
The Sun is but a few months old and
is run by the printers turned out of the
Oregouian office when they got the

get out a neat newspaper, one that the
people of Portland and the northwest
can well be proud of.;- y ; '
Through the courtesy of Mr. Van B.
DeLashmutt, general manager otj the.
Universal Exposition, we we;e given a
complimentary to the exposition, but
we are sorry to state that it is not so
good as in former times. About the
most interesting part of the show was
to listen to the "spielers." We were
justcnteiing a side show in the mid'
way when we met an acquaintance
coming out who said that it wasn
worth seeing., The .'spieler!' bearing
what was said, died out, "Just what

We saw tome of W. A. Slingerland's
fine Hood River apples at the com
mission house of Levy, Spiegel & Co.,
and on inquiring the price, found they
were selling for $1.50 a box.
Verv 111 tie improvement is noticeable
in the city; nothing in the way of
building going on. The storekeepers
say they never did a better business
during the holidays thai those of 1804.
So the storekeepers should not com
plain of ha-d times.
Ou our way home we passed through
snow drifts that made it seem l:Ue

The siale teacbeis' association held
in Po -tlaud during the holidays .was
Hie largest gathering of the kind ever
had in the slate of O-'egoi. Overseven
hundred teachers we-e present from
different par is of the se. Of course,
the representation from Portland was
very 'large, 'but tbe delegations from
Eastern Oregon were wunout pre -dent.
It is probable that one of the
results of the uncommonly large al
tendance from Eastern Oregon was the
location of tbe next association at
Hood River. Easteru Oregon has
never had anything oi the kind hith
erto, aud it is but a just tribute to the
people of that po.ion of tbe state to

teachers were the first to do this. This

J. H. Fletcher of Vancouver. Wash.,
who is one of the most successful prune
growers in that section, says, the Inde
dendent, says that he will dig up all
his fine pear and cher.y trees, which
are bearing as flue fruit as can be
grown anywhere, and fill their places
with prunes. The reason assigned for
this is the fact that the cost of .shipping
green fruit to an Eastern market is
greater than that of sending dry fruit,
inasmuch as it must go by refrigerator
express. Green fruit must be sold im
mediately upon its arrival at its destin
ation, while dried fruit can be held for
a year or more if it is deemed .advis
able. ' -' :

: When Oregon .Was Unknown.
Natural as it is now to regard Oregon
as thoroughly American and ; never to
think of this great. commonwealth as
other than a part and parcel of the
United States, there was. a time .when
this section of the country, .vaguely
described as the Northwest r- an - un
known region, given oyer in the pop
ular mind to remorseless savages and
all manner, of fierce and dangerous
beasts seeming to have but small
chance of ever becoming one of the
United States of America, aBd shar
ing the prosperity which- has .since
blessed the nation.
In the United States senate, in 182-5,,
Senator Benton made a speech. , con
taining the following expression, which
will show how the people of that day
regarded this region. .Mr.,,"" Benton
Said: . :. ;-;,'.,-. ,f.::l .. .:'- .
"The ridge of the- Rocky moun tains
may be named as a eon venien,, natural
and eyelasting boundary. Along.. this
ridge the western limits pf the,..re,ppb.Uc
should be drawn, and the statue of the
fabeled god, Terminus, should be erept-j
ed on its highest peak,.- nevers to; .be
thrown down. ; . ...
Years after, it is well known, Benson
.changed1 his,. yleefjof the great West
.utnope 'douJtiliejd.what '8. sentiments
had been and' now his great 'influence'
was exerted. r Even as late aslWgSen-,
ator VViUth'pp quoted, the sgptipjehts
of Benton and approved of itf; aiqidfcde
clared that ,"th,ls country wciiild.. not be
straitened for elbow ; room iii th, West
for lOOO years; that .neither tha West
nor tne country at large had any- real
intei'est in l'etainiQg Oregon." This
seemed to be the sentiment common
to AmeV'caa statesmen clear up' to , the
very dste that the, patiioiic, far-seeing
old missiooaiy. Dr. Marcus Whitman,
mncie liis perilous winter jou'oey fi-om
O'.'eson to WeshJngton, D. C., . in the
winlcof 1842-'43. V
He, at that l me, found the secretary
of suiie, Daniel Webstei', busy nego
tiating with Eoglaod for ; a .trade, in
which Oregon wai to pass to Great
B 'tain. The stanch old missionary
entered an earnest protest, and plead
ed wiih Webster lo slay his proceed
ings until be should' demonstrate the
practicability of tfce overland trip as
well as ihe territoiy the UnLed States
was then in danger of losing. ' ' .'
The story of the; terrible ' ti ip made
by Whitman is too well known in this
country to. need repeating".--v It was a
great event in haiiou'al hisfor.' Great

up to )843 tueSiaiesmen of the, land
had a very poor idea of thevalue of
our Pacinc holdings. ,rirom time, to

were always . voted down or pigeon

any lmpo. taoce of tbe question -until

Au International Postage Stamp. 1
The German government is about to
place a proposition before the European
countries relative to the issue of an in
ternational postage stamp. It is be
lieved that such a stamp - would be a
boon to all who carry on a foreign cor
respondence; At present, if any one
wishes-: information ' from a foreign
cbontry', he-is unable to send a postage
stamp- for 'reply, since no counti-y
will receive-a-foreign stamp as postage
on an Outgoing letter. One is there
