FRIDAY, JULY 31.'' 1896.
The populist convention ut St. Louist
nominated Wm. J. Bryan for prvsl
'ent and Thomas K. Watson of Geor
gia for vice prtsideut. Mr. Bryan said
he would refuse the nomination unless
Mr. Bewell also was endorsed, but the
nomination of Watson was made unan
imous. Democrats and populists have
fused on Bryan, but each party has a
candidate for vice president. We are
at a loss to know how they will vote
for vice president with two rouididates
and one set of electors. .

A newspaper in La Grande recently
said: "The prettiest girl in this city
does not carry herself straight enough
when promenading." For a week af
terwards all the young ladies of the
town walked about like so many bean
poles, and every girl said: "That hor
rid old paper! Ma, don't I walk
straight?" Welcome. .'
It is stated that Senator Mitchell is
coming home in a couple of weeks to
take an active part in the campaign,
and will stump the state for McKiuley.
The fellow who put this report in cir
culation evidently has not turned a
cathode rayon Mitchell's brain, or be
wouldn't have made such a statement.
Mitchell will not jeopardize his
chances of elect ion by taking part one
way or the other in the campaign.
Old fishermen believe that the salmon
, which ascend the river never go back.
As evidences of their belief they say
that none are ever caught in their nets
from the upper side; and that ln'clear
streams like the Rogue river, where
they are always seen to be swimming
up stream, never down. That they
swim deep is evidenced by the fact that
they are sometimes caught on sturgeon
hooks, 800V feet beneath the surface.

The Populist Idee.
In a recent scientific publication ap-s
peared a paragraph which states that
by treating ordinary cow's milk, add-
ing to it alum and sulphate of iron
(cooperasl, then subjecting the mix
ture to pressure and baking, a substance
maybe obtuined which, for all prac
tical purposes, will pass for ivory. One
of our populist friends spelled out this
paragraph, the other day, and immedi
ately conceived an idea. After pro
tracted labor he was delivered of the

The Original Bryan Man.
The original Bryan man lives at
Lamed, Kansas. Dr. 8. F. Mercer was
a. practising physician at Salem, III.,
and was the attending physician when
Win. J. Bryan was born. He says the
boy came into the world howling and
kicking, and that he has kept it up
ever since. Dr. Mercer is a republican,
but under the circumstances thinks he
will vote for the young man.
C. R. Swan, a druggist of Hutchin
son, Kan., lived in Jacksonville, III.,
when William J. Bryan attended
school at that place. Miss Carrie E.
Curtis whs also attending school there
and living with an uncleJ Bryan and
Swan were herardent admirers. Brvan
was the favorite with her uncle, byit
Miss Curtis could not be easily per
suaded. She fell in love with the drug
slerk and. soon became Mrs. Swan,
much to the chagrin of young Bryan.
Swan says he knocked Bryan out In
that little love affair and will assist in
doing it again in November.
' Political Superstitions.
It is generally the case that no sooner
is a candidate nominated for the pres
idency than the hunt is at once begun
for omens, good or bad, to suit the feel
ingsor prejudices of the one who is in
search of them. The fact that some
admirer of Mr. McKiuley had called
him "the Napoleon of American pol
itics" made the fact that he was nom
inated at Nt. Louis cn the anniversary
of the battle of Waterloo a strikingly
significant one.' Indeed, manv smier-
stiiious persons who are warmly inl
favor of that gentleman's election
shiver as, they have tried to convince
themselves that there was "nothing in
it." But, on the other hand, there is
a bad omen hanging over Mr. Bryan.
He was nominated on Friday, which,
tvithont the least warrant lor it, has
become known the world over as the
most unlucky day in the calendar.

Better than Gold or Silver.
Hood River, July 29, 1890. Editor
Glacier: As your readers do not avail
themselves of your generous offer to
discuss financial questions in the col-
Umns of the Glacier, I wish to use a
little space to present a few facts and
thoughts in regard to the equitable
and economical distribution of a sub
stance of far more intrinsic value than
gold and silver, viz: Water. If all the
gold and silver in the world should at
once distippear, no appalling calamity
would follow; businefS would snon ad
just itself to the new conditions, with
possibly a diminution of the burdens
now borne by the toidmr masses. .
When I came to Hood River, in the
fall of 1894, 1 had a fair newspaper
knowledge of its resources, but when I
had a realizing sense of its sublime
scenery, its magnificent snow-clad
mountains, its noble river, i:s fruitful
soil, its UHtural under drainage, its pure
and bracing air, its comparative ex
emption from itisect pests, its remark
able adaptation to the production of
fruits of superior excellence, and last,
but not least, an abundant and appa
rently inexhaustible supply of the
purest and best of Water, of which
nothing but the selfishness or stupidity
of man could deprive its citizens, 1 at
once determined that my farmer boy
should share and work for success with
the citizens amidst the manifold ad
vantages of Hood River valley. When
I looked upon the commodious and
convenient school house, the number
and neatness of the churches, I in
ferred, as I had a right to infer, that an
intelligent and law-abiding people
most assuredly provided them. Well,
I bought, built, cleared and cultivated.
Everything was lovely, everyliody cor
dial, "property perfectly safe; even the
young people seemed devoid of any de
sire to cut up any harmful mischief;
hut when we bought water, oh! then
a change came over the ppirit of our
dreams. Our gauuer did not get
around, and supposing, in our ignor
ance or innocence, or both, that the
purpose of a gauge was to measure
water conveniently and economically,
we made one; it cost six cents and
worked perfectly. Finding it cheaper
to make gauges than to dig channels,
we made three more. Cost for the
four, about 35 cents; could measure
from one-half inch" up to twenty
inches and on either or both sides of
the ditch. They are at my place, sub
ject to the inspection of ali interested.
By and by the ganger came around;
said such gauges would never do af
forded facilities for stealing water.
Why, Mr. Ganger, this water costs me
only 10 cents a day. Who do you sup
pose would steal water for a day or
fraction thereof at such a price? 'Ob!
its not. the value of the water but the
crop the water will produce; that is the
temptation. Then golden visions of
lucrative crops danced before my eyes,
and in my gratitude at such nrospe'ets,
declared that anybody would be will
ing to pay another 10 cents a day for
double the amount of water and double
the crops again. He downed me,
though, declaring that almost every
body up and down were accused of
stealing water; he had iieen accused
himself. To say I was surprised was
to put it mildly. I had brought, my
boy into a den of thieves and lived
here six months without a loss or a
suspicion. He took my gauges out,
put an official gauge in, and then my
surprise became astonishment. It cost
a dollar! At least that is what I paid
for an extra one. It was gotten up in
violation of all laws which govern the
handling of water, and strange to say,
afforded peculiar facilities for stealing.
In addition' to openly obstructing the
main channel, one need only to nail a
piece of board in the bottom of the
main channel; when hidden from the
eyes of man it performs within certain
limits its nefarious work.
Mr. Editor, I have diligently Inves
tigated these stealing stories. There
may be a black sheep or' two in the
valley and quite a flock of careless ones.
This carelessness, exaggerated by the
malice of personnl disputes, is the sum
and substance of these stories, and on
these are based the rules of our little
lateral ditch company, that waste time
and money, kill enterprisedeaden am
bition and try patience. For instance,
a gentleman living in town has an acre
out of town, would buy an inch of
water, let a four-inch man have it'all
the week except one day, when he
would go "out and apply it. Set an
ambitious boy to work irrigating a field
of dry dust with five inches of water
reduced to three and a half by the offi
cial gage, and you will have occasion
to wonder before night where he has
gone; whereas, cut the ditch and give
him twenty inches, as we were enabled
to do by the kindness of our neighbors,
and he will work thirty-six hours with
out sleep or rest. Its excrutiating to
see a 200-pound man toiling puttering,
rather and patiently trying to coax
a tiny stieam of two inches, reduced as
above, down aj long channel. As it
stands now, we can remedy none of
inese ining- without violating the rufes
of the powers that control our Lateral
Ditch Co., I he statutes of Oregon and
the moral law. i
Messrs. Armor and Isenberg Inform
me that in their neighborhood they
have divided water on time for two
years and that the system works nicely;
Mr. Armor stating that he can secure
better results with three inches than
he could with five inches under then
old plan. Our one experiment demon
strates we can save three-quarters of
me moor aua secure mucn better re
suits. 4
Gentlemen of the Lateral company,
over which Mr. Luckey presides, ft is a
condition, not a theory, that confronts
you. I understand your annual elec
tion of officers is at hand. It is on you
the responsibility rests to sav whether
the present waste of water, time, crops,
money and patience shall continue for
another season. A little thought will
assure you that the plan of our neigh
bors mentioned is a sensible one. Im
prove on it if you can, and demonstrate
that all corporations, little and big,
can manage civilized communities bet
ter through their honor and intelli
gence than through fear and Ignorance.

No Use for Horses.
A farmer who cotildn't pay his taxes
wrote to President Cleveland, telling
him how sorry he was, but the only
property he had was some horses. If
the president could assist him in the
side of. the horses he would be grateful
and only too jlad to tu.n over the D'o-
Iceec'son the tax account. . The story
goes that the president replied that at
this progressive day the business of the
country was being done by bicycles;
the railroads were operated by electric
ity, and the government is being run
by jackasses, "so that, my dear sir, we
have not much use fpr horses."
Electric Bitters.
Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gen
erally needed when the languid, ex
hausted feeling prevails, when the liver
is torpid and sluggisfi and the need of a
tonic und alterative is felt. A prompt
use of this medicine has often averted
long and perhaps fatal bilious fevers.
No medicine will act more surely in
counteracting and freeing the system
from the malarial poison. Headache,
indigestion.constipat ion, dizziness yield
to Electric Bitters. Fifty cents and one
dollar a bottle at Hood River Pharmacy
