FRIDAY. JANUAltY 0. 1899.
The city of The Dulles is in a fair
Way to lose the trade that has built up
the city mill inurie it the distributing
I oint for u liig portion of the Inland
Empire riming the past 40 years. The
'olunibiu Southern railroad building
fom BUgs lias reached Mora and in
time will reach Antelope, with prob-
uhl a branch to Prineville. This takes
away the ratle of that part of Sherman
imiiity Unit h.n been tributary to The
I ailes, and the trade of Crook county
ami southeastern Wasco will be. Inst to
it. The projected railroad from Lyle
to Uoldendale, if built, will take from
The Dalles most of the trade of Klli.k county ll now enjoys. The only
hope. for The Dalles to retain her su
premacy as the chief city of the Inland
Empire lies in establishing manufac
tories. The Mountaineer has been
pointing out the way, but the men
w ho have the capital and own the real
estate and who are most interested con
tinue to hesitate.
Under date of Dee. 17, 1KU8, Governor
Lord, by authority of section 2500 of
Hill's (.'ode, appointed the following
named gentlemen as a state board ol
immigration: J. C. Cooper, Henry L
J'ittock and Win. G. Gosslin. In view
of the importance of the work to- be
undertaken, and tile desire of the board
to secure co-operation in every section
of the state, as well as by every indus
try therein, it is deemed advisable to
obtain a full expression of opinion.
With this end in view a convention is
ailed to meet in Portland, Jan. 21,
1S!K), at 10 o'clock a. m., to be com
posed of editors, mayorsy-eounty judges
and commissioners, members of the
legislature, and such representative
citizens as may be appointed by mayors
uud county judges or commissioners.
The question, Where are we to get
the soldiers to do garrison duty in oil'
new possessions? has never yet been
satisfactorily answered. ' But, presum
ably, the men who favor imperialism
also want to do the soldiering. To bt
c msislent, every man who favors the
annexation of the Philippines should
be willing to join the army to do gar
rison duty or tight if necessary to sub
due the natives. No man ha the
moral right to help send others where
he would not be willing to go himself.
Imperialist newspapers of the dem
ocratic stripe seem shocked at the prop
osition to increase the regular army to
100,000 men. More than this nuiber
of soldiers will he required if o.ur gov ,
eminent is going to hold all the terri
tory now claimed as captured from
Kp.iin. The congressman who would
Vole for expansion and then oppose an
increase of the regular army the only
means to carry out expansion would
hhow very poor statesmanship.
Canadians are becoming alarmed at
the spirit of conquest shown by Amer
icans and fear that their "free and in
dependent government" will be traded
nti' by England consideration ot
Uncle Sam's alliance against the great
povversof Europe. If Canada had a
heathon'populatlm of several millions
n'ie would indeed be in great danger of
boing "absorbed."
Another Union Meeting.
As will be seen by a notice in the ad
vertising columns of the Gi.acier to
day, a meeting of the stockholders of
the Hood River Fruit Growers Union
is called for January 14, 1899. It is
well known that the directors of the
it 1 1 ion are more or less handicapped by
bylaws and rules that need amend
ment, ami it is necessary that a meet
ing of stockholders should assemble to
transact other important business. The
board of directors held a meeting last
Saturday and adopted the following
resolution, which is to the point:
"He it resolved by the Board of Di
rectors of the Hood River Fruit Grow
ers' Union, That a failure of the stock
holders to attend the meeting on Sat
urday, January 14, 1899, and to amend
the bylaws and transact such other
business as may come before the meet
ing, so as to allow the board to conduct
the business in the best interests of the
fruit growers,' shall be deemed bv the
board good and sulficient cause for dis-
continuing business the coming sea
ton." mine sainion Mae. i

The Sealing Industry.
Hoon K.IVEU, Dec. 30, 18!J8. Editor
Glaciek: Just at this time w hile the
fortune seeker not only of our own
country but mauv others are traveling
their way towards the rich gold fields
of Alaska and British Columbia now
if the discoveries of the precious metals
already made under the trying condi
tions are any index to the future, who
can predict the possibilities of the won
derful gold fields of this country for
instance, l lie 'lreaitweti mill, witn lis
thousand stamps pounding away at a
mountain of quartz, with enough
quart:: in sight for the next hundred
years and more, with some of the rich
est placer digtiiigs ever discovered on
the continent, and yet an empire of
like gold fields unexplored. The ob
ject of this article is to notice one of the
best, paying interests at present, and
will be for all time to come, if properly
protected by. wise legislation of con
gress lur-bearing seals.
W hen Secretary Seward purchased
Alaska from Russia in 1807, payi-ig
therefor $7,200,000, the wisdom of his
act was almost universally questioned;
more paiticularly was the price a mut
ter of comment. As no one could un
derstand the significance of the $200,000,
it has recently come to light as a "stale
secret" that when war was feared with
the mother country during a critical
period of the rebellion, our good pres
ident and Secretary Seward secured a
pledge of aid from Russia, who kept a
number of her best warships on our
northwest coast for a number of months,
ready at a moments warning to aid us
Happily the storm passed over.' Bui
the expenses of Russia was a debt of
honor up n the nation which was fi
nally settled by the cession of Alaska
to the United Stales at a nominal price
for the payment of this debt, which
amounted exactly to the sum of $7,
200,000. If this'be true, Russia, in or
der to relieve herself and our state de
partment as well from so embarrassing
a position, really made us a present of
her American possessions. By this
purchase the United States acquired
the exclusive right to that portion of
Retiring Sea lying in Alaska, about 700
miles from the mouth of Yukon river.
In this sea are two islands, St. Paul
and St. George, which are the chief
breeding grounds of the seal. . It soon
oecame evident to congress that if un
restricted killing was permitted the
seals would become, as in all other
places, exterminated. So in 1870 con
gress gave exclusive privilege in Beh
nng Sea to (he Alaska Commercial Co.
By terms of this act the company pays
i he government an annual rental of
$55,000 and $2.65 bounty on each seal
secured; no more than 100,000 to be
taken each year. From this the an
nual revenue is over $300,000, amount
ng in nineteen years to about $5,300, -iKX).
The. lease expires next year. The
cost of protecting the industry is about
5 per cent of this amount. Two gov
- rnmeut vessels are employed to guard
the interest. And yet it is estimated
t hat at least 30,000 seals are capt ured by
independent sealers who take their
chances of losing vessel and boo'y, be--iiles
destroying , twice that number
which are lost; yet they have more
than doubled in numbers during this
lease. The seal is migratory in h s
Habits. ln October he goes south, just
bow far no one knows. Jn their re
turn iu the spring they strike the Cal
ifornia coast lar below .Santa Barbara;
passing north they destroy large n um
bers of salmon. An average seal skin
is worth f roil i $8 to $10 in native color,
and, curiously enough, every seal skin
taken ha to be sent to London to be
colored before going upon the general
market. In this business we find the
most complete monopoly in the world,
tor the process is kmvn only to Lou
don artisans. Its value is increased
many limes by this process.
In conclusion, let the press of this
'ountry urge upon congress tiie im
l oittmce of wise legislation (no exec
s' ve rights or trusts), tenderly provid
ing for the protect. on of this valuable
interest; otherwise it will lie destroyed,
is in all other places; and as a sequence,
for awhile cheap furs, then no furs at
all. W. P. Watson.

La Grippe Successfully Treated.
.... "I have just recovered from the sec
ond attack of ja grippe this year," says
Mr.Jas.A.Joues, publisher of the Lead
er, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter ease I
used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
and I think with considerable success,
only being in bed a little over twpdays
against ten days for the former attack.
The second attack I am satisfied would
have been equally as bad as the first but
for the use of this 'remedy, as I had to
go to bed in about six hours after being
'struck' with it, while in the first case I
was able to attend to business about two
days before getting 'down.' For sale
