SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1S95. j
Ah we go to press (Friday noon) there
has been no election of a senator at
Salem.' On Thursday's ballot Speaker
Moore's and Senator Hobson abandon
ed Dolph and voted for Williams.
This would indicate that Williams may
be elei-ted today, the last of the session.
Judge Williams is probably the ablest
man in the republican party of Oregon.
He will be 72 years old the 26th of next
month. He was elected a district judge
in Iowa in 1K4 7. In 18o3 he was ap
pointed by President Pierce chief jus
tice of Oregon territory. In 1864 he
was elected by the union party U. S.
senator from Oregon. He soon became
a leader of I he republicans in congress
and was the author of the reconstruc
tion measures that passed that body
over the veto, of President Johnson.
After his term in the senate he was ap
pointed one of the high joint commis
sion to settle the Alabama claims and
other disputed questions. . In 1871 he
was made attorney general In Grant's
cabinet. In 1873 he was nominated by
President Grant for chief justice of the
supreme court Of the United States.
His partisanship In congress after
leaving the democratic party made
him many bitter enemies in his old
party. Col. Nesmith was then repre
senting Oregon in the lower house. He
hud served in the senate with Wil
liams as a war democrat, but returned
to his first love after the war. Nes
mith had many friends among the sen
ators and he used his influence among
them to defeat Judge Williams' con
firmation. Williams' stylish wife was
at that time too frequently seen oil the
streets in a government landau, and
Nesmith managed to have Williams
dubbed "Landau" Williams. The op
position to his confirmation became so
strong thatGon. Grant , withdrew his
name before a vote was taken. In 1875,
Mr. Williams resigned as attorney gen
eral and has since been engaged in the
practice of law in Portland. If elected
he will soon become a leader again of
his party in congress.
At the city election in Philadelphia,
Tuesday, O. F. Warwick, the republican
candidate for mayor, was elected over
ex-Governor Pattison by 60,000 major
ity. This shelves Governor Pattison
as a presidential possibility. He was
twice elected governor of the strong re
publican state of Pennsylvania, and if
he could have been elected mayor of
the republican city of Philadelphia it
might have started his boom for the
presidential nominations next year on
- Manufactures Seeded.
Hood River, Feb. 18, 1895. Editor
Glacier: For several reasons we
should encourage manufactures here at
Hood River. We have the water
power and natural facilities hundreds
of places have not which carry on man
A cannery would be of great benefit
to Hood River. We raise strawberries
quite extensively, and can raise toma
toes, corn, beans, pease, cabbage,, cu
cumbers, squash, etc., to perfection.
In the line of canned goods we could
put them up here and save the freight
on the same and derive a benefit direct,
while as it is now we send our money
jtway and never get it back. It goes to
build up some Eastern manufac'urer.
If we had a cannery here we could
"keep our money at home, which would
benefit all and build up home institu
tions. And we will never prosper un
til we foster home industries.
The time has come when the farmer
must diversify his crops and he must
dispose of them at prices that will just
ify raising them. Fruit being our
principal industry, there is always a
portion of the apple crop that can not
le put upon the market on account of
iiemg bruisea, small or ill sua pea.
They could be worked up into cider or
vinegar, so that the grower could real
ize something out of them. If we had
a cannery, there would be a large
amount of products raised here which
are not now raised nor never will be
until we have a cannery. As to our
fruits, large and small, they are not to
be excelled in quality anywhere. We
could put upon the market a class of
canned goods for which we would have
Ho fear of competition. Let us all
unite and put forth an effort to procure
& cannery here in the near future.

A Hrendsome Publication.
' We are indebted to Capt. Coe for a
copy of the Great Northern Bulletin, a
publication of 32 pages issued by the
Great Northern and O. R. & N. Co.
On the front page is an illustration of
two apples from ,the orchards of M. V.
Rand of Hood River. From an article
on Hood River, in which is illustrated
our famous Clarke's seedling straw
berry, we take the following:
This river has its source at the base
of Mt. Hood, and runs through a val
ley 18 miles long and 8 to 10 in width.
Fruit raising has come to be an im
portant industry. Hood River apples,
peaches and berries have a wide rep
utation. Strawberries attain remark
able size. The town of Hood River
overlooks the Columbia and is already
notable as a health and pleasure resort.

the south and Adams to the north,cov-

F. C. Smith, Australian commissioner
to the world's fair, visited Hood River
while on the Pacifio coast, and in a
letter to the Australasian said: ''At
Hood River I saw and tasted the finest
looking and best flavored apples I
think 1 ever have seen." c
Tli riiliiiuik Wind. r.
When the earliest explorers and trap
pers came into the Pacific northwest
nearly a century ago they were im
pressed with the wonderful power of
the chinook wind to cut down the deep
snow banks of winter. When they
made inquiry of the Interior Indians
respecting this strong and singing
breeze, the natives pointed to the south
west and answered 'chinook." A pop
ulous tribe of Indians along the lower
Columbia bore this name, and the in
terior Indians meant that the breeze
blew out of the Chinook country. The
native races are passing away, and
scores of tribes then peopling the
great wilderness have vanished as a
wisp of smoke that curls into the sum
mer air, but the chinook wind remains
one of the distinct features of the laud.
T he pioneers learned to welcome it as
the children welcome the first flowers
of spring. There is always joy in the
land when the chinook blows ofF the
salt ocean and finds its steady way to
the plateaus and highlands through
the deep gorge of the mighty Columbia.

Frederick Douglass, the well-known
ex-slave and colored orator, died at his
home near Washington, Wednesday,
of heart aisease, aged 78.
Some enthusiastic republicans claim
that a democrat can't read, but accord
ing to recent advices from Delaware,
this malady is contagious and has fi
nally worked Its way into the g. o. p.
That state not long ago inaugurated a
governor who canx neither read nor
write. For the first time in the history
of the state there was no inaugural ad
dress, and this set people thinking.
Joshua Marvil was the republican can
didate last fall and was elected. ' Ho is
a business man of good repute, and
worth at least $150,000; which he made
by hard work and shrewd investments.
Marvil can sign his name, and, know
ing his weakness, he secured the ser
vices of N. P. Smithers, a leading law
yer, as secretary of state, and Smithers
will virtually be the governor. This is
the first time on record where a gov
ernor can neither read nor write. Del
aware of course is a small state, but it
certainly could scare up better cuber
natorial timber than this. Antelope
From parties wao visited the locks
yesterday we learn that the work there
is oeing pushed very last, ana any one
who has kept any watch of the progress
of the work is convinced that if the con
tractors are not hampered in any way,
that boats will pass through the canal
before Christmas, and if the high water
is not ot long duration, probably in
November. . The gates are being put in
place, and a large force of men are em
ployed at that work. Chronicle. 1
To Establish Quarantine Stations.
; In a few days more the governor will
appoint three commissioners on the
state board of horticulture, as the terms
of that number of the board will soon ex
pire. As soon as the appointments are
made tlie commissioners will call a
meeting and elect officers and make
new rules and regulations.
The new law gives this board greater
powers than heretofore possessed, and
much more effective work may be . ex
The commissioners will also, as they
have received the power, establish
quarantine stations. '
These stations will be placed at every
port of entry in the state and also at
every point where a railroad enters.
There will also be a quarantine station
at Portland. This will be the head
quarters, and the officers in charge will
direct the movements and send orders
to the various branch quarantine sta
tions from the city.
These stations will consist of large
wooden sheds in which the plants that
have been imported and which are sus
pected of being covered with conta
gious diseases can be thoroughly disin
fected and fumigated.
To establish and maintain these
quarantine stations will cost consider
able amount of money, and this is
what the commissioners are not well
supplied with. The new bill, which
asked for an appropriation of $12,000,
was amended so asito reduce the appro
priation to $9000. The old bill appro
priated to the state board of horticul
ture but $6,000. The $9000, it is expect
ed, will scarcely meet the requirements
of the board, as it was supposed to cover
all expenditures as well us the salaries
of the commissioners for two years.
, Don't Step 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
Cermanently cure any case with three
oxes, or refund the money with 10 per
cent interest. Baco-Curo is not a substi
tute, but a scientific cure, that cures
without the aid of will power and with
no inconvenience. It leaves thesystem
as pure and free from nicotine as the
day you took your first chew or smoke.

Anecdote of Lincoln. , ,
Secretary Herbert, in a speech recen t
ly before the Scotch-Irish society at
Philadelphia, related the following an
ecdote of Lincoln:
I heard recently an anecdote which
I don't remember to have seen in print.
It is attributed to Senator Henderson.
Very early in the civil war, extremists
began to urge President Lincoln to is
sue a proclamation to abolish slavery.
Mr. Lincoln was slow in making up
his mind. While the matter was under
consideration, the present ex-Senator
Henderson went to see the president at
the White House just as Mr. Sumner
was leaving. Mr. Lincoln said: .
"Henderson, did you meet Sumner
out there at the door?" , .... .
"Yes, sir." . . .
"Well, that man comes here once a
day. There are three of them who
have entered into a combina
tion to compel me to issue a proclama
tion emancipating the slaves. They
want it done no ft', whether I think the
time has come or not. Ben Wade
comes early in the morning, Sumner
comes at noon and Thad Stevens comes
at night.; I've got so I hate the sight
of them. ' Every time I lay my eyesou
one of them, I think about the boy
who was put to reading the Bible at
school, and got stupid when he came
to the names of the three men who
walked -through the flrery furnace. He
read . along glibly enough until
he came to those names; then be halted.
The teacher scolded him, but it was of
no use. He trounced him and still the
boy could not get out the names.
Then the teacher shouted: "Shadracb,
Meshek and Abednago, you dunce;
skip them and go along." And : the
boy read along very smoothly for a
page and then all at once broke out
crying. "What's the matter?" .said the
teacher, and the boy blubbered out:
"Here comes them infernal three fellers
."Do you know," said the Cheerful'
Idiot, "that it is the easiest thing in
the world to tell whether a man is go
ing out on a journey or returning oy
the way he carries his valise?" ; "I
never - thought of that," said ' the
younger boarder. "What is the dif
ference?" The Cheerful Idiot settled
himself a little firmer in his chair and
gloated a moment before answering.
"It is just this way," he went on,
"when a man is going away he carries
his valise toward the railroad station,
and when he is coming back he carries
it in the other direction." Public Opinion-,
