XII 15 ONLY WAY LEFT IS TO CALL
AN KXTItA SESSION.
It is now perfectly apparent that
there is no hopo that this congress
will pass n 5430,000 appropriation iu
aay form whatever for a portico
railway at The Dalles. No one
questions the good fulth of Gov
ernor Peunoyer In asking congress
to give that sum to open the Colum
bia, or in seriously ex pec tint; to ob-
talu hearing for his request. But
the Indications from Washington
point unmistakably to the conclu
sion that the combination of circum
stances is such that it Is folly for the
governor to any longer he under the
delusion that he has anything to
expect from this congress. Hol-
mau's Hostility to all unusual, ex
traordinary or new Items of expend
iture; a Democratic) congress de
sirous of making an economy rec
ord; the Republican senate nlready
committed to a canal aud locks
project partly completed, Bouator
Mitchell championing a boat rail
way; the Influence of the Union
Pacific railway in" congress against
opening the Columbia river all
these conspiring circumstances unite
to make the probable chance of
congressional aid almost a perfect
impossibility. It would bo dlfll
cult of procuring, all things favoring.
As it is, there Id no use to waste a
word on the subject.
Before the Oregon legislature the
mutter would bo very different.
There Is a harmonious relation be
tween the governor aud tho legisla
ture on tho subject of a portage
railway. Both are committed to It.
It was recommended by him and
passid ono house, nnd was defeated
in the other not upon its merits, but
as a mere by-play of polities. If
tho name legislature were called to
gether it could iu two weeks pro
vide for a poitago railway at The
Dalles. The people of Eastern Ore
iron are entitled to It for the market
ing of their present and their next
harvest. A succession of had years,
with failures of crops aud losses of1,
stock, has left them in bad shape.
Last year's big crop has only par
tially put them on their feet. Good
snow falls Indicate a big crop In
1802. Tho prosperity of that region
absolutely demauds tho oponing of
tho Columbia, aud it has been prov
en that a portage railway will open
It. If tho governor wishes to do
something for that section he should
call tho legislature together and de
maud of it relief for Eisteru Ore
gon. Now is the time to do It. It
could not lefuso to comply. It
would not dare to not act. With an
election just ahead of It, it would
not fall to act rightly.
TOIl KHK1C COINAGE.
Benulor Btcwnrt concluded his
speech on tho presidents ohjectlona
to free coinage In these werds:
The question now Is, shall this

It Is characteristic of the Orir

of $12,000 before congress for tnontyJ
expended from her prlvato InoonM
for Improvemont made on the new
United States legation at ToklcJ
Japan. Tho old United States lega
tion there was such a poor structure
that It was an object of ridicule
among European residents, and ltl
was through the energy of the lata
Minister Swift that an appropria
tion was mado for the erection of a
new legation. The appropriation
was not sufficient to complete the
structure, and Mrs. Swift used $12-,
000 of her private funds to finish It.
If tho minister had lived to com
plete his term of office, thereby en
abling tho family to enjoy the bene-
(Its of tho improvements made, no
claim for $12,000 would have been;
made, but as tho minister died and'
tho family were compelled to return
home, Mrs. Swift thinks the money
should ba refunded.
