Winesapand lien Davis apples are quoted above all others in the St.Lou's market, selling for $3 to 3.75 per barrel. . Governor Pennoyer has endowed Williams college, Massachusetts, with a scholarship of $3-150 in memory of his son, who died there last term. The money is to be used for the support of needy and deserving students, prefer ence belitvf given to Oregon students when suuh are in college. This town of Long Creek, Oregon, had a .$00,000 fire Jauuavy 4th. The town Is without protection against Are other than a bucket brigade, which or ganized at the flie. Hood River ?s bounded on ihe no ; h and e.;st by big rivers, but the watem in 'them could not be, used to overcome a, fire in the town. We have here about every kind of organization except a fire company 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' ton, as he may select." 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 ing a bright aud newsy puper. In speaking of his towuk editorially, he aays:.

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 type-setting -machines. - The printers 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 every one says the best thing in the exposition!" 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 passing through a tunnel.

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 g'ye them some recogn'vionj and the' teachers were the first to do this.

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. ' -' : ;.. . Boycotting PopiHsts.

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 .. .:'- .
