OFFICIAL CITY ANI» COUNTY PAl'KR. . fentered at the Iiewiston Postofliccas Second Class Mail Matter. THURSDAY, JUNE 11. 1801. The Northern Pacific .officials have promised cheaper wheat rates for the IuIÜIm) country for this year's crop. Promises, however are cheap. It is the realization of better things that will he fülly appreciated. fr'he new mayor and city council were ejected tinder a pledge of improve ment and progression. Let the wish of the people be carried out at once. Lewiston has no desire to lx> trailing In the line behind her neighboring cities. The insurgent steamer Data, after sev eral weeks of flight, in which by con sumate skill she evaded all attempts at capture by a much bettor vessel, sailed peacefully into the harbor of Iquiqpe and gave herself up to the United States authorities. The Charles ton, fclearly out-maneuvered, came sailing into port a few hours later, in time to be placed in guard of the Itata. 'rhe Original Package Law of Con gres*, of August 8, lHiKi, declaring that states hud full authority to prevent the sale of liquor in original packages, has been declared constitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States, Onief Justice Fuller delivering the bfjlnlon, which was unanimously con curred In except by three justices, who dissented only from some few points in the reasoning. The citizens of Hutte are getting weary of impure milk and have arisen In their might and demanded the issu ance of permits to dealers from the in spector. If the reform could i>e ex tended to her impure whiskey Hutte Would doubtless speedily take on'"the gart» of true respectability, and the As aoclated Press would have to turn to i another Held for blood-curdling stories of Western life.-Knoknna Review. _,I Not the least interesting feature of politics relating to President-making during the week has been the dawning of the supposed intention of Governor Hill, bf New York, to drop the United State* Henatorship and run again for Governor, in the exjieetation of un élection by u majority so great as to give his Presidential boom a controlling fnomentum. To gupjiorters of other candidates the scheme is startling. It WoÜid 1» characteristically bold, with bbvlous winning features. The Phiadelphia Press very forcibly declares that the next republican can didate for president will lx» nominated by the republican national convention, which will be chosen by the republican voters of the country, and advises the prophets to keep quiet and avoid trouble. This may be very good ad vice from the standpoint of the Press, but It Is Just as impossible to prevent the daily journals and the public generally from making political fore casts us it would lx* to reverse the earth's motion around its orbit.—.Spo ksnt Review. The total number of immigrants to the United States during April this year Is greater by 4,0tH) than last year, recent urrivals, especially from Russia and Poland, being in excess of any similar time previously. At the late session Congre»« appropriated $1)0,000 to be expended by the Secretary of the Treasury in preventing the introduc tion of criminals, idiots and other and other improper persons into this country. Secretary Pouter lias appoint ed three persons to go abroad in this service, and numerous agents will lx* appointed to act at home. Senator Stewart, of Nevada, has prepared an amendment to the Con stitution of the United States, which he will otter on the assembling of Con gress, making the President of the United States inéligible for a second tenp. There was held at the Hoffman House, New York, a conference one day last week at which the uiuend Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY PURE ment was discussed. We are informed that the Senators present Ix-sidcs Sen ator Stewart were A. II. Colquitt, of Georgia; E. O. Wolcott, of Colorado; Watson (!. Squire, of Washington; and and John 1'. Join's, of Nevada. Senu *° r Stewart lias assurances that the ; amendment will receive a strong sup j |>ort in tee Senate, and he believes that 1 ^ " ill pass that body. * J If the entries of publre lands may be taken as an indication of Westean set tlement, the States and Territories west of the Missouri are not losing in their strides in agricultural progress. The General Laud Office lius received up to date for April, tilings hs follows: Nebraska, 73!) entries, 8 tilings; Mon tana, till entries, 4<i tilings; Nevada, 88entries;Oregon, 5(i3 tilings, 53entries; Washington, 724 entries, «8 tilings; Idaho, 200 entries, 30 filings; South Dakota, 271 entries, 38 tilings; North Dakota, 27(>entricx, 33 tilings; Arizona, 35 entries, 8 filings; New Mexico, 121 entries, ö tilings; Utah, (>(>(! entries, 20 tilings; Wyoming, !)•"> entries, 52 filings; Colorado, 308 entries, lös tilings. From many of the land districts no returns have yet been received at the depart ment, but the indications are regarded as favorable under the new land laws. One of the attractions promised for the world's fair is a group of Curib In dians, lineal descendants of the natives discovered by Columbus. They will lie transported from their native haunts on the Island of St. Vincent's and will form a part of the Jamaica exhibit. They will live on tiieexpositou grounds at Chicago as they live at home, and pursue their industries, of which the chief is basket-making, in their usual manner. Their manufactures are wonderful in their way, one of its curi osities being a basket that is double and will hold water. As representa tives of a race that lias not progressed a particle in its methods or mode of living for four centuries these people will prove an attractive study. If con tentment and i>eaee is exemplified in their simple lives and their desires do not rise above the means which they can compass for their gratification, it will strike some people as desirable for civilization to unlearn some of its boasted lessons, since their faithful pur suit has never yet brou lit unalloyed happiness. • President Harrison in his Memorial day speech at Philadelphia expressed th ® °« ,inion * hat »««W-miwt flags were "" l i K f H,,oak ,lu ' v ' "J',, 1 tl,e „ fl " f ? 1 ,,t th( ' to l> ,'! 0 , ,ntt f\ 11,0 1 re f ,,e » t is ri « ht - oils point was recently discussed in New York city and General Sickles nnd other veteran officers of high intelligence held with President Har rison that the flag should not be at half mast. The day was not a funeral occas sion; tlieG. A. R. or the military bodies did not march with reversed arms or draped colors; nor did they step to the music of a 'military funeral. There is no authority for the half-masted flag on this day only custom, and the judg ment of many reflecting, intelligent veterans coincides with that of Gen eral Sickles and President Harrison that "the flag should lx* at )x*ak, be cause those, whose dying we commem orate, rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in joyous, thankful triumphant commem oration ot what they did.—.Oregonian. Trade arrangements have been nego tiated with Brazil and Spain, whereby large concessions to the American ex port trade have been secured by the* United States in return tor the admis sion to a free market of inqiortatiotisof coffee, sugar, molasses and hides, amounting to$100,000,000. Similar nego tiations ure in an advanced state with Venezuela, Santo Domingo and Hayti, by which im|x>rtations of the same class amounting to $13,015,000 will be made the basis of equitable compensa tions in favor of American exi»ort. \\ hen these three additional treaties are concluded there will lx* a remnant of something over $14,000,000 in the imports of sugar, molasses, coffee, and hides from the Southern countries (the Britisli West Indies Iteing excluded), which will be reserved for a final series of negotiations with Columbia, the Central American States, Mexico, Ec uador, Peru, and Uruguay. If this import trade* lx* stated as $125,IKK),000 in round numbers, it follows that four fitths of it lias already liecn used as a means of securing larger markets for American exports, and that one-half of the remaining fifth will speedily be covered by commercial agreements with Santo Domingo, Hayti, and Ven ezuela.
