than usual, but the crop Is estimated
to be 60 per cent short of last year.
Picking; of prone Is progressing rapid

lasts much longer, the entire crop will
be harvested with little loss. 'There is

Prune Association, will find 'a good
market for their entire product.

Pains, aches and rheu

- It used to be considered thai only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin

If yea are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild

by all druggists In flftyv

out If you have kidney or puuuer trouble.
Mention this paper when writing Dr. Kilme
St Co., Blnghamton. N. T.
he has ascertained the time when the
fish come up the river-to spawn, and
also the time of the fall freshets. Here
tofore It was thought at headquarters,
that the salmon did not 'ascend the
river until October, while now the fish
warden knows that the fish come up to
the spawning ground as early as Sep
tember 15th. I
The reason of the failure to hatch any
salmon this year 4s the selfishness of
five or six fishermen, who have kept
the Wilson river Vblocked uo" all of
the season by stretching' gill nets
across it, thereby catching the fish and
not allowing them to pass up to the
hatchery.'' Only fifty female salmon
have been taken thus far, where to
have. been a success,. 600 should have
been caught. The eggs from 500 f e
male 'salmon will produce 2,000,000
young nalmon, and it is an established
fact, that all of these, after three or
four years will return to their spawn-
r 'Up to date but 153,000 eggs have been
taken at the hUtehery, and these will
probably be thrown away.
: There Is a bare possibility that the
experiment will be continued during the
jrurtrdf silversldes. which Is Just begin
ning; but this Is not thought practic
able, as the fall freshets will wash the
Tacks" out making the catching of
the- suitable fish impossible. -'- ...
A a result of these few fishermen
stringing the river With nets, making It
Impossible for the fish to reach the
"hatchery racks,"' a bill will probably
be introduced and passed at the next
Legislature closing the Wilson river to
the fishermen, and prohibiting the
placing of nets or any other obstrue
tions across It. .
Mr. Roadmarmel says that every sal
mon thus far. taken at the hatchery
bears the. mark of a gill net. showing
that these fish are first entangled and
escaped from the net of some; fisher
man on the Wilson river. y-,

FOIt THE PURPOSE. OF DISCUSS-
INO f MEANS OF SECURINO i A
PAYMENT OF THEIR CLAIMS
FROM THE " STATE RESOLU
TIONS WERE ADOPTED.
- CFrom Thursday's Daily.)
t The Indian War Veterans of Oregon
held their annual meeting In this city
yesterday, and the-clty hall, where the
session convened at 1 p. nx, saw more of
the old pioneer fighting' men during the
day, than have ever before entered the
portals of that building:. 'Hon. Ben
jamin Hayden, the pioneer attorney and
Legislator, was the chairman of he
meeting, and he added dignity to the
discussions of the old fighters by his
able handling of the gavel. Col. T. A.
Wood, of Portland, was also present
and took part In the discussions.
.: The old fighters were not demonstra
tive, but they expressed themselves as
determined to secure from the state of
Oregon tbe payment of the 12 per day,
promised them before the . veterans
went, to the front to fight the warring
Indians back. It was claimed that , this
per diem would aggregate about $310,
000, and this amount will be claimed
from the state. As it Is thought, how
ever, that the Legislature will not be
able to appropriate this amount at one
time, Colonel Wood proposes to have
4-per-cent bonds, running: 20 years. Is
sued lit payment, and! he believes the
Federal Government, will take them up,
asjsoon as the state acknowledges (he
claim of the veterans. .
...:'A legislative committee, - consisting
of Major James Bruce, of Benton coun
ty; Colonel Tv B. Walt, of Salem, and
J. R. Coopeff-of Independence, was ap
pointed, and a set pf resolutions adopt
ed, covering Colonel Wood's plan, (the
committee being charged to bring the
resolutions before the Legislature next
winter.; : : . .
i Among those present were: Hon.
John Mlnto, J. O. Wright. John Hughes,
James Elgin. William Miller. John H.
Lewis, George EofC and Col. Thomas B.
Walt, all of Salem; CoU T. A. , Wood
and J. H. McMillan, Portland; Hon.
Benjamin Hayden, Eola; Robert Ma-then
y, of Wren, and Major James Bruce,'
of Long Tom,- Benton county; W. J.
Smith, of Albany; H. H. Pearson, of
Marlon C. F. Harlow, of Jefferson;
Wm. Hamilton, of Junction City; John
R. Cooper and D. L Hedges, of Inde
pendence. The meeting adjourned to
January 21, 1903, when It- will again
meet In Salem. ,
'The resolutions adopted at the In
stance of Colonel Wood, and which will
be . placed before .the Legislature,, are
as follows: , ,J...
: "Whereas, the Territorial Legislature
of Oregon did in 18S5 contract with the
volunteers who enlisted and served In
the Oregon Territorial Indian Wars of
1855 and 1859 by act of the Legislature
to pay, said volunteers the sum -or t
per day for their services as an Induce
ment to secure the requisite number to
aid in putting down the Indian hostili
ties which raged from the California
line on the south to the British posses
sions on the north, and from the Rocky
Mountains on the east to the Pacific on
the west, and
; "Whereas, the volunteers, by enlist
ment and service accepted the terms of
said contract, and
Whereas, the territory or Its succes
sor, the state of Oregon, has not paid
said sum. or any part thereof, and
"Whereas, the United tates paid
about 54 cents per day for said ser
vices, and . -
"Whsreas, there yet remains about
$1.45 per day unpaid, for which the
state of Oregon is morally and legally
: "Be It therefore, resolved. That we
ask the Legislature of Oregon to pay
said obligation in 4-per- eent-20-year
bonds, and appropriate - lnbonds the
sum of $300,000 for that purpose.
f"Resolved. that the fallureto meet
said obligation on the part of the state
is unrighteous and said act would not
be tolerated among; gentlemen In-; their
dealings with each other, and the state
of Oregon had no more right to refuse
the payment of this just debt 'than, has
the Individual the right to refuse to pay
his written obligations to his fellow
man. y , 1 y
Resolved, that we Invite , the pio
neers of Oregon, Indian War Veterans,
and the Native Sons of Oregon,' to co
operate In this matter and do what they
can towards securing the honest pay
ment of this debt to the aged, grey
headed pioneer veterans of Oregon who
have waited 4s snd 47 years for what
was justly their due and should have
been paid them many years ago."
The meeting also adopted the follow
ing; resolution, by unanimous vote of
the old veterans present: ' "
"Resolved by. the Indian War veter
an assembled here today, that they
unanimously thank Hon. C. B. Monta
gue, i of Linn county, for his an
tiring v efforts . In l our behalf In
securing the ' passage of -a .- bill
through the House of the f Oregon
Legislature of 10L for our relief In
compliance with the act of the Oregon
Territorial Legislature of 185CV And all
the other members voting for the same
have our everlasting gratitude.

THE RURAL FREE DELIVERY AND
ITS EFFECTS ON A TOWN'S
(From Thursday's Dally.) -r ..
Editor Statesman: 'Some of the
Turner business men and prop
erty owners seem to be dissatisfied with
the F. D. R. postal system, saying that
it Is killing the town. etc. . I heard one
such person say yesterday that: he
would give $20 to have the delivery
system discontinued. Now, we people
of the country around think the system
Is all right, that It is a great conveni
ence, and we do not see , how we could
keep house- without H. We do not
want it discontinued at all, and will en,
ter a most decided protest against It,
don't you feas-A-t killing the town,
that Is-hard to-do' -When place is

... 1 i
People who travel aud are wmstantrr on tkw'.rbad are tery
liable to have dyspepsia or tome other form ofy atomach
trouble.?. They have to lire a they can, not as they would.
The train wont stop for them to eat, they must eat when th
'train stops, and in general the food hurriedly swallowed in the
! ten mmuteaforrefrehmenU ww of an indigestible character.
It if small cause for wonder that under auch , conditions the
stomach becomes disordered and diseased. One of the peculiar
j features of the times is that the scores and thousands of people
who ddnV have to travel persist in living as if they did. They
eat at home or in the restaurant as if the time for refreshment
i was limited to ten minutes and they were in momentary expec
Itation of the call, "All aboard 1" to break in upon their hur
5 ried meal. The very natural consequence of this wy 'of living
is to recruit tbe great army of dyspeptics. Dyspepsia has many
, stages which range from mere' discomfort to utter mental misery
j and physical wreck, y But at any stage dyspepsia Is a menace to
I health and happiness. Ordinarily we think of dyspepsia as si
disease' affecting only the organs of digestion, and nutrition.'
; Bui as a matter of fact the disease affects the whole body. It
causes physical lassitude, mental 'dullness -and depression, head
ache, muscular debility and constipation or irregularity. It is
one of the greatest handicaps to human happiness and useful
ness the world knows. y
Side by side With these facts there is another : Dytpeptia can
be cured, has been cured, and is being cured by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It cures dyspepsia at any
'stage, and the only difference between the cure of Ian old and
obstinate case of dyspepsia and the disease in its beginning, is a
difference of time. It takes longer to cure a disease which has
had years perhaps in which to root and a disease which has
only just begun to show itself. But so uniform are the results
obtained by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery that it may be affirmed that in ninety-eight per,
cent, of cases ft perfect and. permanent cure will be ob
tained. It always helps. It almost always cures.
Mr. Ned Nelson, the celebrated Irish Commedian and Mimic,
of 577 Hoyden Street, Camden. N. J., writes : We fulfilled an
enffapement of twelve weeks, and the constanttravelinj? eave me
a bad touch of that dreaded disease called dyspepsia. I had tried everything
possible to cure it till last week whUe playing at B, F. Keeth's Biiou Theatre,
Philadelphia, in the Nelson Trio, a professional friend of mine advised me to
try Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. I tried it, and, thank God; with
good results. , ..;.'-
Having seen the advertisement of your 'Golden Medical Discovery, and
.being a great sufferer from the effects of stomach trouble for the past eieht
years, l conciuaea 10 try your mcuaiue, wine v. a. juaxwen, ot Marsa
field. Coos Co., Oregon. "I had tried almost every known remedy, and also
consulted with the best medical skill attainable, but all without any relief.
After reading one of your Circulars I concluded to try one bottle of Dr, Jierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. After taking one bottle I felt so relieved it inrfnrWr
continue. Am now on the fourth bottle and have not had a spell of bloating or "acid
stomach (which was very painful) for the last six weeks. Before the use of your medicine
I was in or eaa oi every mealtime, ior in twenty minutes after eating I would be racked
with pain. Indigestion was my principal ailment, and I have been also terribly afflicted ,
' with asthma, which, I believe, was brought on through the medium f indigestion. Now ;
as I stated, after having used four bottles of your medicine, I have not had an attack of
our stomach or painful bloating, and mr asthma has just about disappeared. In fact. I
feel better now than for the last ten years.1 . - - . .
The cures effected by the use of M Golden Medical Discovery are real and
lasting. - A large number of the so-called "remedies n, offered for dyspepsia, are "
mere palliatives. The most they can do is to give some temporary relief from
physical discomfort. But the Discovery makes a perfect and permanent cure.
It does this because it is much more than a mere medicine for dyspepsia. It
cures diseases of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. It
cures diseases of organs seemingly remote from the stomach, but which in reality
have their origin in a diseased condition of the stomach and its allied organs.
Thus with the - cure of dyspepsia and stomach ? trouble " comes the cure of is-
eases of liver, kidneys, heart. Inn on - snH otnae or
gans, when these diseases, as is often the case, have
their cause in the diseased conditionof tla organs
of digestion and nutrition. , -
Sometimes a 'deafer, tempted by the little more
profit paid on the sale of less meritorious medicine,
will offer the customer a substitute as being just
as good n as the " Discovery. It is better for Lim
because it pays better, but it is not as good for you,
ifyou want the medicine that has cured others, and
which you believe will cure you. r
