The New YorK .Lumber 'lrade Jour
nal says: "To a man who has no
money there are several ways to get it,
viz: (a) Beg it; (b) steal it; (c) borrow
it; (d) secure it by gift; (e) trade some
thing for it. And if all the silver in
the, world is coined Into money you
can not get a cent of it except by a, b,
c, d or e, above referred to." If this be
true, those of us too proud to beg, too
honest to steal, with no credit, no rich
relations and nothing to trade, are in a
bad fix. We will have to go back on
free silver if sliver money is not to be
freer-free to all who ask for it. The
sub-treasury plan, with the government
Joaning out money to all who ask for
it, even at 2 per cent interest, is better
than this. "Free silver" will have to
give way to "free money" for our bat
lie cry. '
The name of the Oregon Railway

Mr. Fred Wilson has resigned as ed

he says, to pay closer attention to
other pursuits be has in view. Mr.
Wilson has ably edited the columns of
the Chronicle for the past 15 months,
and his coiaborers of his exchange list
will regret to learn of his resignation.
Oregon's senior senator has kept ve-y
quiet Bince the national conventions.
He has probably been on the fence and
didn't know which way to jump. But
he has finally come down on the Mc

to him whether or not he jumped on
the right side for Mitchell,
The executive committee of the na

address calling for a national conven

The address defines true democracy

The Opinion of a Woman.
Editor Glacier: The more one
reads on this money question the less
they know. It seems to me that the
gold bugs need one crutch and a cane
and the silverites need two crutches, if
not more a lameness on both sides.
It seems to me that the whole trouble
with this nation today is that we have
lorgotten tne very principles upon
which this government was founded.
We talk with pride about our Pil
grim fathers. Are we their sons? This
(ireat financial depression is the effect,
not the cause. Now, if we find the
cause and remove it the effect will take
care of itself. If we want the respect
of other nations we must not allow
ourselves to be a chess board for them
to gamble on. We allow them to come
here to gamble on our lands, which
should be held by actual settlers. We
allow them to gam Lie on our produce,
and last, but not the least, we sell our
daughters to the sons of these men, and
to our shame, we know some are sold
too dearly. We have enough roguery
and dishonesty in high places iu our
own ountr.v without invitinir in the
foreigners. We bear the cry of too lit-
lie money want more silver, and co
on; but if there was more, -with the
present plan, there would be more for
. II 1 i -,.n x . ...i.i. .i
make more- millionaires. We have
forgotten that God is a God of Nations.
We have proved ourselves unworthy
of the trust We have as a nation
failed to walk in His statutes and to
keep his law. A. L. II.

Pague, chairman of the committee on
state and county exhibits, is sending
out the following circular:
Portland, Or., August 18, 1893 Dear Sir:
The success of the exposition of 1895 was in a
large degree due to the public spirit mani
fested by the citizens of the stale and of
Washington, shown In their contribution of

agement of the exposition this year Is prac
tically the same as It was last year, and we
feel that even greater success will attend our
efforts this year, than which was obtained
last. We cannot make It a success without
the aid of the people of Oregon and Washing
ton, and this Is addressed you to ask for your
co-operatlon. .
We have live distinct departments and so
licit your interest In all or at least in the one
that you can help In. The department on
mineral, which includes gold, silver. Iron,
copper, clnnlbar, lead, tin and other ore, coal,
building stone and articles manufactured out
of the natural products of Oregon. The for
estry department Includes wood of all kinds
and articles of any and every description
made out of wood. Grain and grass depart
ment includes everything under this head,
Including vegetables, hops, flour, corn, and
all growing things and articles manufactured

will consist of f.'ulU green, dried, canned,
and fruits of all klndsin all forms. Fish de
partment will Include an exhibit of canned
fish, fresh and dried fish, a hatchery of sal

cellaneous department of articles not men

sistance and cooperation? We will transport
all exhibits free of charge to this city, and
such as you wish will be returned at the close
of the exposition free of charge. Kindly

your co-operation, and If you will co-operate,

1 Hood River's Wealth.
"Hood River valley Is the garden
spot of the Northwest" is a common
expression heard from everybody who
visits that section, and this idea is cer
taoily justified by the output of that
wealth-producing and fertile valley.
wr. jyi. r. isennerg explained to tne
T.-M. reporter how the fruit products
of Hood River serve as a sort of "end
less chain" to draw money from the
outside world, first comes the straw
berry in May and June; beinirof ami
perior quality it goes to the remotest
part of the country and commands
fancy prices. JNext the prune and
plum crop is harvested and adds an
other link to the chain; following this
comes the blackberry, which is' supe-
rmrviany line oerry in ine world ana
is a source of additional revenue; the
pear crop then comes in for attention
and brings a whole lot of money to the
producers; ana last or an is tne tiooa
River apple, which stands pre-emi
nently as the best seller on the market
and draws money even from the "four
hundred" of New York. Thus it is
that the harvest season beirins in Mav
and lasts till November, and draws
money fro m tne entire country to the
little valley in the mountains. The
crop this year has been a little short in
almost all lines, but it is sufficient to
draw some $100,000 from the fruit con
sumers of the nation.
A Good Cherry Tree.
Several statements in regard to the
value of the cherries produced by sin
gle trees this season have been pub
lished of late. And now comes Mr.
Glafke, who resides in the outskirts of
town, on the iL,at bide, and deposes
ana sunn, mat, ironi one itoyai Ann
tree on his premises, he, this season,
picked and fold for shipment East,
cnerries tor wincn lie received $o0 40,
and further, that thereafter he sold
more cherries from the same tree to
the value of $8, making the value of
tne cnerries proaucea ny tnis tree,
$58.40. Hie man who tells the first
never did stand any show in the Wil
lamette valley. Oregonian.
Senator Thurston publishes a card
accepting the denial of W. J. Bryan
that he was ever in the pay'of the syn
dicate of silver mine owners.
Since 1878 there have been nine epi
demics of dysintery in different parts
of the country in which Chamberkun's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy
was used with perfect success. Dysen
tery, when epidemic, is almost as se
vere and dangerous as Asiatic cholera.
Heretofore the best eflbris of the most
skilled physicians have failed to check
its ravages. This remedy, however,
has cured the most malignent cases,
bot h of children and adults, and under
tne most trying conditions, which
proves it to be the bett medicine in the
world for bowel complaints. For sale

A young man named Mark Vu n bib
ber was drowned in the Columbia at
The Dalles, Thursday of last week.
Captured the "Bear" AlUe.
. Winans, Or., Aug. 18, 1896. Editor
Glacier: Last week a Dalles man was
oat bunting, and hearing an unusual
noise in the brush in a canyon, crept
up cautiously and satisfied himself that
he had discovered an Immense bear
breaking the hazel brush and eating
the nuts: but the man being afraid to
shoot at the bearalone, hurried to camp
to iret a friend to come ana snoot it.
The friend happened to be out bunting
in another direction, and W. Ross
Winans was accidentally met with,
who, knowing that his 14-year-old son
was digging an irrigating ditch near
where the man said he saw the bear,
took his gun and went along to see
that no harm befell the boy. Another
one of the campers also went along to
see the bear tight. All approached
cautiously, and when the man pointed
out the hear, which could easily be
seen moving about among the bushes,
Mr. winans reaauy recognized nis son
working in the irrigation ditch, un
conscious of his peril of being shot for a
bear. The noise the man had heard
was the boy throwing rocks out of the
ditch with bis hands, the rocks falling
among the brush. Part of the time the
boy was stooped over, working, and
while in this position, and seeing his
black hat and brown shirt, the Dalles
man concluded he was a bear, and no
doubt would have killed him had be
bad tbe nerve to shoot at a bear. Mr.
Winans considers it more than luck
that he went back with the man In
stead of the other party, for they would
not have known that the boy was
there, and being fully convinced that
it was a bear, this bear story would
have had a more serious sequel, prob
ably one or more funerals.
Many forest fires are raging in the
haunts of the campers and trout fish
ermen. The sheep men are not in it;
no fires ehowinit in their ranges. I
think it is all a mistaken idea that
sheepmen fire tbe woods, there being
plenty of feed for the sheep without it
and too much clanger ot burning up
their entire bands Sheepmen should
not be allowed to eat up settler' crops
and ranges with their sheep, butought
to be allowed to make use of the tens
of thousands of acres of waste lands.
The reserve should and will be thrown
open to the stockmen, and if closed to
any one, better exclude the few tramp
tourists and fishermen, and thereby
have less forest fires. W. R. W.
Wild Camels in Spain.
Camels have domesticated them
selves in Southern Spain the only
spot in Europe where they may be'
seen in a wild state. Some forty years
ago a herd was brought over from Af
rica, and as no use coQld be made of
tbe creatures they were turned loose to
shift for themselves. The camels flour
ished and increased, and now seem
quite at home in the district between
(Seville and Cordova. It will be ob
served that Spain has had a similar ex
perience with camels to that which
Arizona experienced, and the fate of
the Spanish drove may ultimately be
like that which has been roaming th"se
many years along the eastern borders
of the Colorado desert to furnish beef
Cor the mining camps. San Frauclsco

He Was for Silver.
A respected citizen of Nortonville,
Kansas, died a few days ago. At the
funeral, after the minister had finished
his discourse, he called for remarks
from friends of the deceased. After a
brief silence a neighbor arose and spoke
of the many excellencies of ''our de
parted friend." He told of his kind
ness as a neighbor, of his advocacy of
temperance, his charities and his
church work, and feelingly alluded to
"his zeal in the cause dearest to the
people, the free coinage of silver at 16
tol." -
