The content at thu republican prima
ries in Hood River valley.last Saturday,
was about the warmest affair of tliakiml
that ever took place in Hood River. The
chief internet in the contest fordekjwtcs
centered on thecongresnional canilitlute,
and the minor ollieen were not men
tioned. The adherents of brute Senator
Williamson worked incessantly for a
week or more and overcome the work 01
Representative Moody's friends at the
polls by a vote of 14 to 8 in Hood River
valley. The tight was generally made
jood-iiaturedly, aud all soreness seems
to have about disappeared.

Hood River, Feb. 24, 1902. Editor
Glacier: I have observed with keen
enjoyment the interest taken in the de
bates between Odell and Pino Grove lit
erary societies. One of the most desira
ble accomplishments of aman is to be
able to stand before an audience of his
fellows and logically, fluently and grace
fully present to them his views upon
any subject under discussion. It strength
ens, deepens and broadens the character
of a man and gives him advantages over
bis fellows not to be attained otherwise
by birtli or wealth or other favorable
eircunistane.es. Our future statesmen,
politicians, leaders in the business and
social world are to be recruited from the
ranks of the rising generation. If a
young man has ambition for a promi
nent place in any of thesa avenues-leading
to distilinction in the ranks of his
fellows; a mastery over himself and bis
speech will give to hiin an almost irre
sistible force, while a lack of this w ill
prove an almost insurmountable handi
cap to his career. Let our young men
zealously study to acquit themselves
with honor in the debate,and Hood River
may lead the world in statecraft as well
as in horticulture.
I have observed with a great deal of
mortification, disgust and- personal in
convenience, the condition 'of some of
our public highways in the valley. A
little fall of snow followed by a chinook
breeze w ith a gentle rain, a typical pro
gramme of the weather department of
the valley, places many stretches of our
roads in an almost impassable condition
for n time, and even when the admira
ble qualities of our soil and climate has
' restored the roads to a solid conditon in
a few days again, they are always left
in a more or less rough condition by rea
son of the numerous ruts, . chuck holes
and new stones protruding where the
dirt had worn or washed away. The
amount of time and money ex'pended to
keep the roads in even passable condi
tion by our present methods for a few
years, would, if expended in thepurchaso
of a rock crusher aud the manipulation
of the same, shortly place our roads in
such a shape that nothing short of
an earthquake would affect their solidity
Washington and Multnomah counties
tried this experiment years ago over
roads many times worse than our very
worst.in the neighborhood of Raleigh
and lieavorton particularly, and they
met w ith such abundant success that
when last heard from they proposed to
concrete the entire district. Where in
years past it was hardly possible to pass
on horseback, teams may now haul one
and one-half to two cords of wood over
roads as solid as adamant and clean and
smooth as a bicycle path. After being
thus treated with crushed rock ten per
cent of the present expense would keep
the roads ui fine shape. Is not this a
pertinent question for our county com
niissioners to consider? Such roads
would double tho value ofour holdings in
some parts ol the valley.
I have observed with some amuse
mont and considerable contempt the
8 raining at a gnat and the swallow ing
ol the camel resorted to by some ot our
self-righteous male or female citizens
who appear to have been attacked by a
severe spasm from the suf erings of a
worthless cur, of which latter, Hood
River is certainly abundantly accursed
If a cat or a dog cannot be taught to be
decent about tho premises, perhaps the
tiest thing that can be done is to kill it;
but life is sweet to even a filthy dog or
cat and many people, mercifully they
think, prefer to let them shift for them
selves ratluar than to kill them. There
is another animal, one of "God's create
urea, "'the genus homo, for which these
people who have been suffering from
this spasm of tenderheartedness seem to
have no pity. A little more kindness
shown to specimens of this genus, botl
male and female, by all people would
greatly reduce suffering, sin, disgrace,
desertions and divorces, and an increase
in health, wealth and the pursuit ot
happiness. Let every . woman give to
her husband the caresses and kisses she
does to a tilthy cur or a nasty cat, and
the husband bestows upon his wife the
same tender solicitude and affection he
often doe's upon a cat or dog or horse and
there would be little occasion for a liu
mane society. "Them's my sentiments.

The object of our trip that day was to
take three visiting friends for a little
boat ride and take some views of the

into the ImiU it divided that the
captain should take the women and
children ashore, which was geeiirding'y
done. We found a place behind a small
cliff of rock, where we were sheltered
from the wind, and made a tire wkh
wood and matches brought from the
boat. Here we were fairly, comfortable
during the hour and a Ivitf that elapsed
In-fore the boat as freed from the
snag. When it did enme off the snag,
it was run d.vwn the river little wave
to escape other atiatra and then straight
into shore, coming no dose that the
(our men on hoard junied to the shore
without getting in the water. e Hoy
enough to carry the entire party home.
Here our real trouble began. It did not
seem very cold w hen vie left home, and
we soon foumftlie wraps we wore were
insufficient to protect lis from the pierc
ing winter wind which blew with such
terrible force at this point on the river.
Almost every one in the party sacrificed
some wrap orother article of clothing to
wraparound the little children. The
women and children were again put in
tho boat with, the captain, while the
rest of the party walked down the
beach. . j
We found a largo boitt.and thecaptain
immediately started to a bouse back
from the ihore a little ways to find the
owner of the boat, but was told by the
people living there .that they did not
own it. At the second house lie was told
the owner of the boatjived back in the
mountains somewhere. Briefly telling
them of our dilemma, he asked them to
tell tho owner of the boat when he came
that he had taken the boat butwould re
turn it soon and pay for the use of it.
He returned to the boat w here after a
little search the hiddenoars were brought
to light and the boat launched.
What we suffered from the terrible
cold whiles waiting here we will not soon
forget. There was not the slightest
shelter, not a thing to break the piercing
wind from us, uot a p!ace,to sit or even
stand except in the sn6w or ice. When
once we were in the boat we felt that
our troubles were almost ended. The
coats of the oarsmen were thrown over
the little children and they were soon
asleep. With three of the men at the
oars we went rapidly over the water to
wards home, which we reached in three
quarters of an hour's ride. We were
verv tired and hungry, for it was almost
6 o'clock w hen we were home again,
and no one bad eaten anything since
breakfast, except the little children, for
whom a little lunch was taken along.
Did we resolve that we would never go
attain? No. onlv that we would never
make another trip in the winter time

many are backsliders. He served four
