The Canadian government has always

Su h reasonable regulations would
afford a revenue to the Canadian gov
ernment and rr.o-et with no resistan?e
cn the part <■' miners. They very nat
uraiiy objected to the imp<.sit: n of an
enormous royalty, the placing of
miners' at a tantalizing dis
tance from the direct road of many, and
the Imposition of duty ui-m miners" out
fits which were generally permitted to
g free. The United States very gener
ously res p. nded t>"> the request of the
Canadians for the establishment of a
sub-port at Dyea, and manifested a
very good spirit. Without wishing to
foster a fe* ing which might prevent
more frier.lly relations, we think we
may ask th- Canadians, in all candor,
whether they think they have respond
ed in a like good spirit.
On Its face the transcontinental rate
war tends to benefit Seattle; but the
whole situation la pregnant with harmful
possibilities, and it is to be feared that
the present great demoralization will
lead to undesired after-results. If the
fight should extend to freights, it would
rend- r the ent.re local business situa
tion unstable and unsatisfactory. The
commercial community wants low
transcontinental rat-s. but it is ess-n
--tlal t > healthful conditions that they be
subjet t to no great and sudden varia
The Canadian Fa ifie railr ad must
be he'.d accountable for the present un
fortunate warfare. It insisted on a dif
feren'ial on through Alaska business,
to will, h Its titors thought is not
entitled. The present cut rates extend
only to territory through to the Atlan
tic seaboard in which the Canadian Pa
cific is a competitor, and upon the
Northern Pacific and Great Northern
alone has devolved the necessity of
meeting all cuts. The Oregon itailroad
& Navigation, Union Pacific, Southern
Pacific and others are maintaining the
old schedule. It is at once obvious that
traffic naturally belonging to these
lines, but within reach of the northern
lines—especially in Missouri river terri
tory—will be diverted and must come
to the Sound. It is true that both the
Great Northern and Northern Pacific
give Portland a terminal cut rate, but
there is no reason to expect that the
proportion i f passengers heretofore de
livered to that city by these routes will
be Increased. On tlie other hand, no
west-bound tourist who might other
wise have taker the Union Pacific,
Southern Pacific or other roads, will
fail t> come over the Canadian, Great
Northern <>r Northern Pacific unless
there is a more powerful reason than
the nu re saving of money to keep them
Ail this is a mere temporary advan
tage to this city. It is well enough f r
the trawler, but the business man has
abundant reason to be made uneasy by
the chaoti conditions, and in n- will be
displeased to see peace rest< red.

Gen. Edward 3, Bragg, of Wisconsin, a
valiant soidler during the war, who is
responsible for the famous epigram about
Grovrr Cleveland. "We love him for the
enemies he has made," has grown war
like over the Maine disaster. He said in
an Interview:
"I know what I would do if I were in
command at Havana harbor. 1 would
shell the town, take It. then set it on
tire. After the flames were well under
»4jr I would advise the government at
Washington what I had done. They
might remove me from my command, but
the I'iit'ji; problem would be solved com
Fortunately Gen Bragg is only in po
sition to act up to the peculiar suggest! ve
ness of his rame He is a greater m.ik- r
of sentences thc.n carver of a nation's
destinies. We are getting along a iltt'.e
slowly with the Culcui question, but per
haps quite as fast as is consistent w.th
dignity ar.d our duty to ourselves.
The presr-nt demoralizing rate war Is
felt k-er.ly In Portland. It has shut that
city out of the Klondike outfitting busi
ness, and merchants are naturally anxious
to have o2d rat-.-s restored. Says the
"In the prevent condition Portland Is
practically sliu : out. How long this *on
dition will i.ontjnue is not known. It
caiui-.-t pos.- ibly last very lons. But
while it endures. PurilanU api»ars to
out of t.'iu Klondike outfitting business."
The end of the warfare is not In s.ght,
but, all the same, Seattle, which seems
to be the chief beneficiary, will not be
sorry when the present trouble Is over,
ihu situation is entirely too explosive.
'i shall now see whether the public
places Its confidence in a party which bi
lls platform pledges Itself to specific per
formance along certain lines, or whether
it will accept the demagogic declarations
of a hybrid fusion organization that stands
for no principle except spoils. The Repub
lican party has a habit of fultillinff its
pledges, or of making an honest effort in
that direction. Who believes that hi«'h
morality and supreme purity are to be the
guiding stars of the new Populist adminis-
tration, if by any mischance the reins of
city government are turned over to It?

at Ml :» hotel Xo. 1 last was an
exchange of defiances and an agreement
to hgnt between Ciiltea U-t-orge Francis

the police would be puzz.<d to find a iaw
for slopping a contest between the soul

Wv-Mtpon. The contest will be to a finish.
The agreement w.:* made laie in the

liquors at the banquet. Citizen Train
however, consumed great quantities of
ice water, and .is his face became more
and more flushed, his physical anility
more and more in cvi-Jv.-ce, hi- eyes
brighter and h'a wit keener as the
passed, many of his envious and exj>cri

themselves the theory that he had se

Mr. Jarrold. "'Mickey Finn," wno was ;
one of the speak rs. said it was the great

freaks that had ever been gathered in
New York. This "general descriptive
sketch of the company was recened with
wild applause, and both hosts and guests
apparently aid tluir best to io k and act
their part?. There were many queer- i
looking of both sexes minted wit i

women. The company included sever il

and sclntilated with increasing brilliancy.
Fred C. Hamilton, chief ruler of the
club, presided. He followed the example

A well-known Armenian gentleman, whose efforts in behalf of hii
countrymen have borne considerable fruit, writes as follows: " £
had been suffering with indigestion fior months. My food would dis
tress me, and many sleepless nights would T pass with an overladen
stomach. I did not have much faith in patent medicines, hut I had
heard so much about Ripans Tables, that I thought I would give thrm
a trial I took one after each mead, and on the second day I already
began to feci that they were help ng me. Thrrefore l continued to take
them faithfully till I used up a whole box. Not onlv did they entirely
cure mc of my indigestion, but my appetite has so improved, that it is
causing much content and pleasure to the other members of my family.
As to myself, I do not hesitate a moment to state here that Ripans
Tabales are a wonderful remedy for such troubles of thr stomach as
I had, and now I am so attached to them, that I shall always have some
in the house for the use of the family in case of need, and I also shall
recommend them to my friends, whenever I have the opportunity."
