There is'nothing startling from the seat of war. The re turn of non-union miners still goes on. A great many arrests have been made and the striking miners are loud in their condemnation of the way the law is ad ministered. The. profess to be confi dent that the mine-owners will operate the machinery of the law to suit them selves, and, right or no right, punish them without mercy, when the arrests were made at Burke the prisoners, .heavily guarded, with their wet clothes and gum boots, were inarched two deep to the depot. They were not allowed even to partake of dinner. In reply to their loud talk United States Deputy Marshal Hulliimii. informed them they were seized by the iron grasp of the law and were his prisoners. They are re solved on having revenge, and it is ru mored thev will next attack the root in stead of the branch to remedy the evil They confess to lighting the non-union ttien in oiien con-flict in self-defense and disclaim any connection with the Old Mission affair, which they say were per petrated by outlaws, who took advantage of tke occasion for the purpose of rob bery. Half the miners of the Tiger and I'Oorman mines arc now in custody. Among those arrested are Justice of the Peace Frascr and Postmaster Marsh, both sympathizers. A very prominent member of the union says : "The influx of non-union men means the commence ment of a gnerrilla war. Our men have Khown that they are fearless and de termined. They have not hesitated to destroy valuable property when they knew that it jeopardized life, and they are reailv to do it again. We are the men who have made this country." Van. B. PeLiishmutt, the mine-owner, informed the -Associated" press corres pondent yesterday that most of the non union men, driven outof Wardner, have returned and it is quite probable the Hunker Hill and Sullivan mine would be started up again this week. DeLnsh mutt ways the Sierra Nevada at Ward ner will' start up. with nearly the same force as before the trouble. The Gran ite miiiers, ho were last to be driven out, lid not go far, and nearly all have ..return;! and will go buck to work today. 1-U:V.1U.I9 JLETTFK. rBmn-l(5ia hull Alive A I'rafltable Ferry IlarveHting, etc. ' to The fa uoxicle.

Time Has Come When This City Should be Puhed to the Front! Nnw that there can no longer be a doubt as to the. time for the completion of the Columbia river improvements be tween The Dalles and Astoria, it ia time for the people of this city to "begin a systematic work of letting themselves and The Dalles be known abroad in the land. One way of doing this has been suggested in the shape of a pamphlet, descriptive of The Dalles, and the sur rounding country, in both Oregon and Washington. None need be afraid to tell the truth, about a location at the practical head of navigation for deep water craft on the lordly Columbia, only 180 miles from the sea, with an area of country tributary equal to all of New England, and the most productive of any lands known to cultivators. Tell it as you please, gentlemen ; to a crowd of hungry millions thirsting for just such information, ia some shape, and it will have a very desirable effect. Only , Don't put it off Till after the crack of doom. A firm in Houston, Texas, bas a very choice way of advertising. They first get a list, next send a circular, then fol low it up with a home paper, with a not. appended, telling1' the person to whom it is addressed that the subacrip tion has been paid for, asking that it be read and handed to your neighbor. "It will do yon good and possibly broaden your ideas of Texas." That is business. The document is self-explanatory. We commend the example of Houston to the attention of Dalles City property owners as one of the best ways to adver tise and make people elsewhere convers ant with the growth and resources of this region. It would be easy for our banks, merchants and others to prepare a long list of persons who, on learning that the paper had been sent them at the instance of a friend here would read it thoughtfully. "When that Dalles paper comes be sure to put it on my desk," members of large . firms that re ceive many papers, would say, in order that they might take it home for quiet perusal in the evening. In this way people in other cities would learn of the general progress of the town. Special articles could be prepared upon subjects here, of which we have a superabundant supply, and such information would set live men thinking, and if they desired more they would write for it, or come here themselves. Reduced rates for papers distributed in, this way would enable everybody to aid in the good cause. The town is now ripe to consider the subject, and it should be attended to at once. MUST BI SETTLED SOME WAT. The Olil Time War Against the 1'ilott Again Threatened. The. people of Oregon will never con sent to pay the Columbia bar nor river pilots, out of the state treasury. This Columbia river bar business has for 25 years been run in the interest of Tort land, and if Portland wishes to make a deal with Clans Spreckels, let Portland put up for the expense of it. The Dalles will be compelled to take an unmistak able hand in this matter at no very dis tant day. Col. McCraken says there is nothing in the way just now, if Gov. Pennoyer will consent to the scheme and recommend it in his message; "then," says the Colonel, "we would have no difficulty in giving Mr.- Spreck els a guarantee bond, and then he would immediately send up his tugs." The attempts to hog the wages of the pilots will meet an unexpected opposition in the next assembly. One of their num ber, Capt. Campbell, will himself be in the assembly, one of his positions will be this : "There is no state in the union where pilots are handicapped as they are here. The pilots of San Francisco are an independent body of men who are not subject to any corporation. They receive their license from the state, file their bonds, and whatever they earn be longs to them. Let the Portland cham ber of commerce examine the pilot laws of every state on the Atlantic seaboard, and they will find that what a pilot earns belongs to himself, provided be complies with the law. Why did the Portland merchants sell the tug Pioneer? The pilots should be entirely distinct from the towage business and should be at liberty to collect what the law of Or egon allows the pilots for their services. There should be no deductions." The general sentiment of shipping men is in accord with Captain Campbell. They hold that the shipping of the Colombia is now able to support an efficient body of pilots and that these, pilots should not be hired by any corporation or firm but should be free to exercise their call ing as are the pilots of all other ports. They hold that this will be best for the ship owner and the port. The pilots! earn all that the law allows them. They deem it nonsense to depend on the state voting any money for pilotage. Theyi simply want to be let alone, and to have the same rights accorded them aa are ac corded in New York and other ports, where the most powerful companies that pay thousands annually for pilotage are not allowed to interfere with the pilot system. TENSION INCREASES. Reckless Men at Hoiesteai Liaole to Price a Conflict- V THE MILITARY PREPARING FOR IT. Another Regiment Has Arrived at the Scene of Expected Conflict. A DKVNKKX MILITIAMAN'S ACT. Mysterious Departures of Leaders - Both Sides The Hills Are All Still Quiet. Homestead, July 19. The tension be tween the strikers and the military is increasing. There are many irresponsi ble, reckless men in town, mostly with some sort of arms, and an nntoward event might precipitate a conflict. The military, while not expecting such an outcome, are evidently preparing for it. A large additional amount of ammuni tion bas been received from Frankfort. There are at least 250,000 rounds of am munition here, and more is expected. Another regiment was brought over the river this morning, and it is understood three others will be brought over day by day. All is quiet at the big mills, and there is no visible evidence of the inten tion to start up. David Lester, a militia man, while drunk this morning, ran bayonet into Frank C- Calhoun, inflict ing a wound which .will prove fatal Two brothers named McConnell, Eng lishmen, who worked as foremen in the Homestead mill, have not been seen for three weeks, and the locked-out men believe they have gone to England to engage non-union men to take their places in the mill. A dozen of the best educated and most conservative of the locked-out men at Homestead left for the east yesterday with great secrecv. It believed they have gone to labor with a lot of Belgians, said to be on the way to take the places of amalgamation men. The amalgamated lodge of workmen, at Carnegie's union mills, yesterday morn ing resolved to stand firm in the strike and tendered the Homestead men both financial and physical assistance.' Beaver falls employes kept their threat and did not go to work yesterday, conse quently the mill did not resume. Things are quiet about the mill. But. Astorian. The Spreckels,:; of San Francisco, who are likely to send tugs here, are men of undoubted enterprise who take pride in promoting the inter ests of p'aces with which they are con nected. They would find good scope for their abilities here. But: Col. Mc Craken, of Portland, appears to have queer notions of pilots' - rights. He ev idently thinks the legislature will vote money for pilots so that the Spreckels' tug may be brought here to compete with tho Union Pacific. We would like to see the Spreckels' tugs here, but they will find plenty of business to do with out encroaching on the just earnings of the pilots. The pilotage on the vessels that will come here during the present shipping year will support a body of efficient pilots who will do their work well on any part of the river. Starts in KIght. Telegram. Judge Thomas A. McBride, of the fifth judicial district, who will hold a special term of court here for Judge Shattuck.'commencing August 2d, ia evidently a man who will stand no nonsense from witnesses. During the past week he has been holding an ad journed term at Hillsboro, and he taught some of the witnesses a whole some lesson. One man came to the stand the worse for liquor, whereupon the judge fined him $10 and ten days in the county jail. The next morning the witness appeared and testified. The judge then, in consideration of the sick ness of the prisoner's wife, remitted the imprieonment and sent him home soler. A Hoard of Arbitration. Chicago Post. An Oregon paper sug gests and urges that the labor troubles at Homestead be referred to a committee for peaceful arbritration, said committee to be composed of Gov. William Mc Kinley, republican protectionist; Gov. Pattison, democratic free-trader, and Terrance V. Powderly, labor man. Un doubtedly arbitration by one means or another is the way out of this weighty trouble. But ' if the three gentlemen mentioned are to form the committe who will act as a board of arbitration for them.' Do Ton Keeognixe the Name. , Baltimore American.

A Very Successful Season on the Coloui . . uia j:iTr This Year. The sight of eighteen tous of salmon caught in one day, and hauled across the ferry to the cannery from Grand Dalles, as was seen yesterday, leads to thoughts of this industry. Years ago the great hue .and cry was that the river would be fished out. Perhaps it would, but for the wisdom thathas pro vided the hatcheries. And right here is where the much abused fish commission comes in for a duly earned mede of praise for their efficient servicer. There i is fish enough and to spare, this season, ; to keep up the reputation of the Royal; Chinook Salmon. in the markets of the j world. ' Twelve million dollars' capital j is engaged in the work of catching and curing him, and the Columbia is til? only known river where he is to be found. The merits of Columbia salmon are well known. It is richer and of finer grain than any other. , It excels all other salmon as a tenderloin Steak docs a piece of sole leather. It is packed bj:J hand with the greatest enre by canneries of the highest standing,' which have been in the business many years and re gard the reputation of their brands as part of their stock in trade. In Alaska the salmon . is packed entirely by machinery, and skin and tails are as likely to be packed all in one ran as any other portions.' Despite the re ported shortage, and the near approach to theclose of the season, the Columbia river salmon will hold its own. Lire ix cubed. Table Fare and Affable Waiters. -All Treated Alike. From Harper's Weekly. "Talk about the tough element in mining camps Creede, Col., knocked them all out when it first started," said W. H. Combs, a member of the Silver King mammoth mining company, which is operating one of the best properties in that new region. . "Last January there was but one restaurant in the place.. It was a small log cabin, fitted up with rough wooden tables and chairs. The menu would test the staying quali ties of any stomach on earth. The waiters were recruited from the toughest element that had floated into Creede on the first boom. t They indulged in all the picturesque slang of that region in filling orders. One day a man ordered pork and beans for bis dinner and get ting tired waiting he told the waiter to bring along the beans without the pork. The waiter stuck hia bead through little cubby-hole at the rear end of the cabin and veiled to the cook : "Hustle along a brass band without a leader. And the customer ate bis beans without a leader. Another customer ' ordered beefsteak, eggs, and coffee that was the entire menu but he only got eggs and coffee, and protested. The big waiter,, with a dangerous brace of revolvers dangling against his tray; Teplied,. 'WallT ye'll take eggs and coffee, blank you, or ye'll go somewhere else, see?" The customer took his eggs and coffee without further parleying, for that was the only restau rant in the town. "Another customer was an aged gentleman with long,, flow ing beard and a great amount of dignit3', who bad come in from the east. With as much dignity as if he were giving an order to the Auditorium, the old gentle man called for a cup of coffee. The waiter, being busy, yelled in a rough voice to another: "Bring in a cap of coffee for weak whiskers here!'' "If a steak were brought in too rare and a customer asked for it to be cooked sgain the waiter would yell to the cook, 'a little more hell on this steak!" Ex-. Governor Cooper of Denver,, eat at a table one day until he grew tired, and he arose to leave when a waiter hallooed, 'Old man, jist sit down again and keep yer boots on I'll hustle in the grub fer ye d'rectly.' And the governor sat down and waited while he brushed away a drift of enow from the .table that had blown in through the chinks of the logs. That Creede restaurant was a great leveler of humanity." At this noted restaurant mince pies are all tested with a steam gauge. Weaver.. The peoples party Weaver doesn't loom up to any alarming degree. Min neapolis Tribune.

' ' i ' . . i , THE IJKEaDFII. DISEASE IN PA HIS. Liable to Keach ChJcgd, and Then th West Sea Board Quarantine Must be Enforced. ' New York, July 19. The present re appearance of . the cholera scare is en forced by enough facta to give ground for serious apprehension. Apparently authentic reports indicate that the dreadful disease has traveled far from its home in the reeking towns of Asia. It has progressed np the Volga, taken Moscow and several other Russian cities and entered the environs of Paris. With this beginning there is no accurate predicting what may be the end. A very little encouragement in the way of efficient quarantine and poor sanitation is enough to send the plague throughout Europe. There is some doubt as to whether the cases reported near Paris are cases of true Asiatic cholera or of the much less fearful malady cholera nostras. In any event, this is no time for the authorities of France or for the quaran tine officers on our own seacoast to de fer to a doubt. The most careful vigi lance is demanded of the health officials in every American city. Even the very remote contingency of the plague mak ing a visit to this city, Chicago, or far ther west, should inspire the local au thorities to additional efforts in cleaning the alleys and sewers, burning the .gar bage and enforcing municipal cleanli ness. There are other precautions to be observed by individual citizens on their own behalf, but invariably the first of these is that relating to sanitary condi tions and the traditional rules for keep ing in good physical trim. Further,, there is, of course, the trite paradoxical precaution of preparing against cholera by refusing to think of. it with appre hension. There is certainly no rational cause at present for a scare. Live care full'eat regularly, boil your drinking water and trust to the good fortune that has shooed away' many scares without giving them any foundation. A careful, courageous watchfulness as to health is one thing; a blind fear is-another. What good one may do may be fairly nullified by the other. ' Wilson The Demon. Oregonian. Wilson ia evidently em ploying the leasure and quiet of his so journ at Salem in careful development of hie theory of defense. It does not ap pear that he has been given the benefit of legal council as yet;: but he could hardly lay the foundation for the de fense of insanity more cleverly, with aid of the advice of the sharpest trickster that ever followed the trade of cheating the gallows out of its lawful prey. His conversations and confessions, con tradictory and meaningless as they are, show a plain thread of design running all through their intricate web ; the de sign is to convey the impression of un hinged wits and to prepare the public mind for the formal plea of insane irres ponsibility when he shall be put upon trial. Fusion in Kansas. St. Louis Republic By the fusion of the democrats with the people's party in. Kansas the electoral vote of that state is-l hopelessly lost to the republicans. The democrats and the people's party in Kansas appear to be pretty thoroughly fused. The democrats have formally indorsed the ten electors nominated by the people's party in June as the choice of the democratic! convention for their electors. The vote on the questioa was practically unanimous, and if the rank and file of the two parties are in accord with their delegates this action will make things interesting in Kansas this fall.

Eastern Oregon. General rains occurred, on the 16th, varying from .27 of an inch at The , Dulles, to .22 in Morrow county, .31 in ' Umatilla county, .11 in Baker county and .18 in Harney county. The mean temperature has been from WT to 75, which is from two to four degrees below the average. ' There has been an excess of cloudiness. On the 15th brisk winds a prevailed north of the Blue mountains ; on the 1Kb a frost occurred in . Klamath county which injured gardens. Harvest is in progress in all of the Columbia river valley counties. The grain is yielding better than was expected. Late grain was greatly benefitted by the rains. Tho grain crop in 1891, in the counties east of the Cascades, amounted to five and one-half million bushels. Corn is doing very well, though would have better growth . with warmer weather." Potatoes are not a good crop. There has been an average stock of hay secured and stock growers feel confident that they will have plenty of feed for any kind of a winter. There is nothing " especially discouraging .in the wheat prospects of the state, though they are not as flattering as they were one year ago, Dut are more so man tuey were in July, 1889. .. Western Oregon. The mean temper ature has ranged from CO to 70, which is from three to five degrees a day below tho average. The weather has been partly cloudy and the average sunshine has not prevailed. Showers occurred on the 17th and general rains on the ICth, except in parts of Jackson county where no rain fell. The amounts of rainfall are, Clatsop county ' 0.83, Multnomah county 0.57, Marion county 0.50, Douglas county 0.27, Josephine county 0.11, northern Jackson county from a sprinkle to 0.05 of an inch. The rain was of great benefit, especially to late sown grain ; to corn and garden truck ; while in portions of the coast counties it did some damage to hay. A continuation of the present weather will prove of great value to the late sown grain. Early sown wheat is being harvested and it is generally tarn- . ing out better than was expected. The oats crop is just beginning to be cut in a few localities. The. wheat crop of 1891,. in the counties west -of the Cascades, amounted to eight and one-half million bushels. Haying is about over and. a grod crop has been secured. The first Bhipment of peaches was made from Ashland on the 16th, which was ten days later than ueual. . A Militia Department. Oregonian. A movement is on foot to have the adjutants-general of the var ious states memorialize congress on the subject of the creation of a militia de partment in the war department, for the purpose of bringing the militia of the states more under the control of the war department and increasing its effectiveness and value.- . While thisu could da no harm it would amount to but little. What Is needed is a national militia law, giving the organized forces' of the states recognition, .as national militia under the constitution, placing it at the disposal of the general govern ment when needed,., providing for uni form organization, equipment and disci pline, and appropriating sufficient, money for this purpose. Such a militia department as is spoken of would be a necessary part of the bureau work in the war department. The cutting bill, already reported by the committee, pro vides for this nationalization of the so called national guard, and efforts to im- prove the condition of the militia would better be concentrated upon that bill. Frefttable Fish Dealing. Telegram. A gentleman, just returned from, the fishing grounds on the Colum bia,, says that quite a lucrative business is- carried on by some fishermen, or rather fish buyers, who sail down around the-month of the river and boy salmon by the fish and sell it to the canneries by the pound. A fisherman receives but $1 per salmon when working for a. cannery, but the fish buyers will give him,ashighas $1.75 for laVge Chinook salmon, according to weight. These fish are brought to the canneries and sold at 4, cents per pound. Steel-head salmon, which are not taken at the can neries, are bought by these boats at 2d cents each and shipped to this city, where the fish are sold to the fish mar kets at 25 cents each. The quantity consumed makes up for the small profit realized on one fish. l'ortland Polities. Hillsboro Independent. . Hon. Joseph Simon did not take his European trip, but has returned home. Now what's up? Ben 'orden for captain of police t Well that beats all. ' The pure citizeufe' .reform party of Portland need not say anything more about a "boss" or a "ring," or Sain Parrish, or Joe- Simon, or Jim Lotan. And so the whole of the citizens' re form movement in Portland has resulted in the exchange of Joe Sinen and Jim Lotan for Ben Norden and Barney GolJ smith. Verily the world at large, or at least that part of it called Portland, loves to be humbugged. The value of good name was well exemplified the other day, when a man asked one of our druggists for a bottle ot Sarsaparilla. "Whose?" inquired the clerk. "Whose? why, Ayer's, of coarse.
