SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1S95.
The Moro Observer of last week
Wrote up our representative, Thos. R.
t1oon, after the ""Oregon ""style" of
thirty years ago. We can inform Bro.
Ireland that Mr. Coon is one of Hood
River's most respected citizens. His
abilities and integrity are not ques
tioned by those who know him. J
Though some of us think he is not
voting on t he senatorial question just
as we might vote if we were in his
place, we can respect the man for vot
. ing according to his convictions. His
old neighbors know that when Mr.
Coon votes against Dolph, or upon any
question in the legislature, he has given
the subject t borough consideration and
does his Uuiy as be sees it.

. ' Mt. Hood, Or.,- Feb. 8, 1893. Editor
Glacier: As your correspondent has
seemingly sunk Into oblivion, I will,
with your permission, contribute a few
lines to your justly popular sheet. The
winter has been unusually fine, which
permitted several social ! hops. The
pleasantest one of the season was given
on Thursday evening, the 7th inst., in
ljonor of John Fredenburg's (alias "our
Johnnie's") 23d birthday; The even
ing being fine, the ball was attended
by the 400 and the lesser lights for
miles around. The music waa dished
up in good style, the instruments com
prising a dolefuf organ, two violins, a
male fiddle and a mouth organ. The
music npt chording well, and the saw
mill being close at hand, the proprietor
started the saw a running two weeks
ago). Lunch was served at midnight,
furnished after ye olden style of every
one bringing their own "hand out."
The dance broke up at 5 a. m., after the
participants had had a most enjoyable
time, The music was furnished by
Messrs. Leasure and Gribbles. ' "
The snow is about eight inches deep;
the Rhoades is passable; the Cooper is
pursuing the even tenor of his occupa
tion, with good prospects of .work in
the future. Francisco is back at his
old haunts again, after his ineffectual
attempt to get in the calaboose. And
by the way, Judge Dimmick Is quite
well again. Matt Fredenb'urg had a
log roll on him, causing a severe
sprained ankle. , .
George Booth, while attending the
dance on the 7th inst., was taken with
a severe attack of cramp colic. He -was
taken to the residence of "Uncle Dave"
Cooper, where, with prompt action, the
pain was speediry reduced. More anon.
' Tho Storm in the East.
The storm that raged all over the
United States last Friday done more
damage to life and property than any
other for the last fifty years, not even
excepting thetormjof March, 1888.' It
spread over four times as much terri
tory,, and' there came with it an extra
ordinary accompaniment of death and
wreck and fire. It shut off travel ' in
all directions and paralyzed railway
.traffic in nearly every city in the East,
North, South and West.
There is no doubt that the accurate
forecasts of the weather bureau prevent
ed a great amount of additional loss.
The damage wrought by the ele
ments is almost incalculable. The ther
mometer ranged in the middle Atlantic
states from 2 degrees above zero to 20
below. Growing crops in the South
and the fruit crops of the North ' have
everywhere been damaged.
In many .sections the mercury drop
ped to a' lower' point than hag been
noted in a decade.. The following are
sample readings covering various sec
tions of the country. '

during the absence ot Mr. Mays. Their
feet and noddies were badly frozen and
some may die. ...
The yells of panthers and bears in
East Tennessee mountains are hideous,
as a result of the intense cold. ' At
Chattanooga they raided a smokehouse
and devoured some hogs.
The thermometer registered 12 above
zero at Charleston, S. C, breaking all
February records. Strawberries and
much vegetation was killed.
Wilmington, N. C, experianced the
coldest weather in 24 . years, 10 above

The thermometer in West Virginia
mountains ranged from 14 to 20 below

' A Case for the Courts, ,
Mrs.' Oiler recently fenced 'up the
road on her land near the Hood river
bridge, and had a gate put in leading
to the cord wood and, posts piled on
the river bank below the bridge. Be
fore, the present county -bridge was
b'hilt, The Dalles and Sandy wagon
road crossed this strip of. land to the
old ford of the river. Mrs. Oiler claims
that this part of the road was vacated
by the county court when the new
bridge was built aud the road changed.
Others claim that it was vacated ex
cept a strip 80 feet wide running from
the present road to the ri,ver just below
the bridge. . During the terms of Capt.
Dukes aud Geo. T. Prather as road su
pervisor the road was closed at the
same place, and they received writteu
orders from the county court to open it
and keep it open. Wednesday, M. F.
Sloper, the present supervisor, went to
the scene of the reported obstruction of
the road. " We are informed he found
no obstruction, and decided to hear
from the court before taking further
action; - Mrs. Oiler informed the su
pervisor she would stand a lawsuit be
fore she would surrender what she con
sidered Jier rights in the premises.
i Don't Stop Tobacco.
The tobacco habit grows on a man
until his nervous system is seriously af
fected, impairing health, comfort and
happiness. To quit suddenly is too se
vere a shock to the system, as tobacco,
to an inveterate user becomes a stimu
lant that his system continually craves.
Baco-Curo is a scientific cure for the to
bacco habit, in all its forms,- carefully
compounded after the formula of an
eminent Berlin physician who has used
it in his private practice since 1872, with
out a failure, purely vegetable and guar
anteed perfectly harmless. You can use
all the tobacco you want, while taking
Baco-Curo, it will notify you when to
stop. , We give a written guarantee , to
permanently cure any case with three
boxes, or refund the money with 10 per
cent interest. Baco-Curo is hot a substi
tute, but a scientific cure, that cures
without the aid of will power and with
no inconvenience.; It leaves the system
as pure and free from nicotine as the
day you took your first chew or smoke.
Sold by all druggists, with our ironclad
guarantee, at $1 per box, three boxes,

Representative. Coon has a very mer
itorious bill providing a new and more
complete homestead law. It is a very
finished measure, covers : the subject
entirely, enacting many important
provisions relating to. homestead ex
emption. . It is the most important
land law before this legislature and
Mr. Coon deserves the thanks of the
people of Oregon tfor his labors in pre
paring it. It is a bill that will pass.

Rising Above Party.'
Ex-Governor Pattison. of Pennsyl
vania, who is the democratic and . re
form candidate for mayor "of Philadel
phia, has issued an address to the elec
tors of that city. He outlines his policy j
of municipal government in case of his
election. - The detailsf that policy are
not of interest outside of Philadelphia,
but the figures he uses to prove the cor
ruption and -1 extravagance . which
have characterized Philadelphia gov
ernment are astounding and ; will at
tract attention everywhere.
,- In 1887 the expense of conducting
municipal government in Philadelphia
was $17,638,304. ':.T his expense had in
creased in 1894 to the colossal figure of
$32,190,000. In other words, while the
population of the city has not increased
in the seven years included in the com
parison more than 20 per cent,, and
while few new streets have been made,
few new public institutions established,
the expense of running the city has in
creased almost 100 per cent. '.
These figures show a' more startling
condition of affairs in Philadelphia
than ever existed in New York in the
worst Tweed and Tammany days.
New York corrupt ionists were demo
crats. Philadelphia corruption ists
have been and are . republicans. In
New Yorkjihe democrats voted for and
elected a republican candidate for may
or to destroy a , democratic ring. , In
Philadelphia the republicans now have
an opportunity of voting for adempcrat
to destroy a republican ring.
The country will watch with consid
erable interest the returns of the Phila
delphia election, held on Feb. 19th,
which will afford an opportunity for
the comparison of the ability of demo
crats and republicans to "rise , above
party." St. Louis Republic. ;
;Mr. Emil Schanno has just returned
from Portlaud where he has been at
tending the meeting of the state ftoard
of horticulture. He was highly pleased
with his visit and says that the only
counties that had any fruit exhibit
worth mentioning were Wasco .and
Union, and that the former, owing
largely to the interest that Hood River
took in the matter and her contribu
tions, was the better. Mr. Schanno is
an active member of the board, and in
sists that the money now appropriated
for the use of the board is sufl1cie.it.
He says with considerable foresigllt,
that if the money set apart for the hor
ticultural board is increased in amount,
the office will become a political one
for the reward of ' political , workers,
and will . be filled by persons who
know nb more about fruit than the
railroad commiss'ioners do about rail
roads, and who will be after the place
simply for the money in it. . As it is
the money would tempt no one, and
consequently only some person interest
ed in the business would accept the
place. Chronicle. .
The grand jury Wednesday returned
not a true bill in the case of tje State
against Broadbent. As his wife re
fused to appear against him, under the
peculiar laws of the state, the prosecu

charging the prisoner Judge Bradshaw
gave him quite a lecture which, if heed
ed, will be a lasting bene ti it to the de
fendant. Among other things he call
ed his attention to the fact that wifely
forbearance under certain , conditions
ceased to be a virtue, and warned him
against again being forced to rely on it
for his liberty.
