WEDNESDAY, - - - - MAY 31, 1893 MEMORIAL DAY. Memorial day was fittingly obseryed in The Dalles. Besides the usual ser vices, of the G. A. R. post, the people generally observed the day, flags flying at half mast in all quarters of the city, the stores remaining closed during the afternoon and the newspapers suspend ing publication for the day. The citi zens needed not to be reminded that the day was not a jubilant holiday, even the children appreciating the sacredness of its meaning and their usual boisterous demonstrations were hushed during the march of the handful of veterans, who with martial tread preceeded by a drum corps, took their solemn march to the -burial ground in reverent love and es teem for the gallant men who offered their lives in defense of the Union an the flag, and who are now bivouacke forever- "On fame's eternal camping ground Their silent tents are spread, And glory guards with solemn round The bivouac of the dead." This is the day which John A. Logan, the old grand commander of the G. A. K., twenty-five years ago designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of com rades who died in defense of their coun try during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every village and hamlet churchyard in the land. Year by year the living ranks are being decimated by death. Few there are now who would be accepted for service in another war, and poon all will aross to that silent shore to join those gone be fore. If the state boundaries are to be changed let us not increase the size of the state, which is already too large, but rather diminish it.- Eastern Washing ton added to Eastern Oregon would make a stretch of country about 500 miles long by air line north and south, with an average width of 300 miles east and west. This is too great an expanse of territory, in view of the rapid settle ment, to be presided over by one seat of government. The Columbia river is a natural boundary and the preponder ance of opinion, when it comes to a vote, will prove this to be true. Eastern Washington are not even as willing for the combination as Eastern Oregon, while the clash of interests of the Pnget sound with those of the Columbia river and its ocean harbors will as effectual h prevent a unification of territory on the west. Hence the question of boundaries will be left for each state to solve, and will not be one for their joint considera tion. It is a great pity that the Oregon Na tional Guards could not have shown the old soldiers the trifling honor of escort ing them to the cemetery, on their mis sion of decorating the graves of their de parted comrades. Of all times and places this was pre-eminently where they should have been yesterday. The men who fought, bled and died that the nation might be saved for these grace less scamps, have a right to expect more than that. They are passing away ; in a few years they will have all been gone ; a great number of them are tremulous with age, or unfeebled by wounds and suffering. Company A, Third Regiment O. N. G. may well blush for shame that the handful of men in The Dalles who have survived the struggles of the war of '61-'65, marched alone to the ceme tery, the lesson of their patriotism so soon forgotten. Whither are we drift ing? "The treasury today purchased 416, 600 ounces of silver." "So says a Wash ington dispatch of yesterday. Now, will any one explain why, with millions of ounces of silver on hand, the treasury bought these 416,500 ounces and paid for them in notes that are practically redeemable in gold. Astorian. We will try. There was an act passed in 1890 called the Sherman act, which provides that the government shall buy 4,500,000 ounces of silver each month, paying for them in treasury notes. There are several newspapers who have heard of this and at odd times have com mented on its wisdom very caustically. We will save some of these clippings up and send them to you the next time we come across aay of them. Subscribe for The Chronicle. Chicago Horse Market. J. S. Cooper, commission salesman of horses, Union Stock Yards, Chicago, says : "The receipts for the opening of the week fell considerably short of the pre vious couple of weeks, and as there were many new buyers on the market, prices stiffened at least 10 per cent, over last week's quotations. Drivers, as usual of late, commanded most attention and sold at prices generally -conceded the equal of the highest .prevailing so far this spring. Good smooth chunks, 11001300 lbs., also sold well, and streeters, so much depressed for two weeks back, sold freely, $10 to $12.50 per head better."

"Uncle Tom's Cabin" has certainly broke loose!" The copyright on this most famous of American novels, by Mrs. Stowe, has recently expired, which frees its publication from the monopoly of the high-priced publishers, and though in anticipation of this fact they have within a few months greatly re duced its price, now that it is really "unchained" the consequences are something surprising. John B. Alden, Publisher, of New York, issues several editions, selling them only direct (not through agents or book sellers) ; one in good type, paper covers, for 5 cents, sent post-paid, or the same bound in cloth for 10 cents with postage 7 cents extra ; also an excellent large-type edition, on fine paper, handsomely bound in cloth, for the price of 25 cents, postage 10 cents. Surely a copy of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" will soon be found in every home where it is not already. t Mr. Alden sends a 32-page pamphlet describing many of his publications free, or a cata logue of 128 pages of choice books, a veritable "literary gold mine" for book lovers, for 2 cents.
