I The Chronicle's Portland, Oregon, spe ! cial says: The Northern Pacific issued a j telegraphic circular to-day announcing ; that it would carry grain from all points j on its line in Washington territory to Du j luth, Minneapolis and St. Paul at $8 per J ton, the same as the present rates. A i Portland circular also states that the rale of $7.60 can be secured via the Lakes to Liverpool or Glasgow, thus giving better through rates to shippers than via Cape Horn. Canada lïefuses. Montreal dispatch: Sir John MacDor ald, premier of Canada, has autlioritivelv announced that his government has resolv ed to refuse the request ol Frewen Bros, and other great English cattle raisers in Wyoming and Montana, to have their stock conveyed through the Dominion from the American border by the Canadian railway to this port for shipment to Great Britain. The piemier supported his decision by charging that the scheme, if allowed, would be prejudicial to Canadian interests. The demand, he said, for cattle in Eng land was limited, and it would be against the interest of our farmers on the plains to give to stock raisers of another country facilities to compete with them abroad. He expressed confidence from the progress already made, that m a short time Cana dian farmers would be amply able to sup ply the whole British market with beef and mutton. '•Why then," the premier urged, 'det Wyoming rauchigen cross Canadian terri tory to do trade we are prepared to do ourselves?" The first duty of the government, he held, was to encourage our own stock raisers. The granting of the application would be averse to their future progress. Sir John opposes also any concession, lest disease break out in American cattle dur ing transit, when the British government would schedule the whole continent, Can*, ada included. These are the reason ad duced for adhering to the prohibition of American cattle coming into the Domin ion. Great influence was used by the Can adian Pacific railway magnates and others, but the fiat of the cabinet is final. A trip over the Oregon Short Line from Pocatello west to the terminus is to the thoughtful and observant traveler a very interesting one. Vast sage plains are not agreeable to the eye, especially when these are parched by drought, and every breeze sends up a cloud of lava dust. But the railway is fast changing this scene, and here and there is to be seen beautiful oases in green fields, stately trees, large stacks ol grain and hay, and pleasant homes. Men have pushed out away from civilization, and through years of toil made some of these, while entire ly isolated from the world, but within the past two years the greatest changes have been wrought. The railway has made it possible for men to do this class of im provement and secure what will soon be pleasant homes, w ithout the privations in cident to the days of emigrant wagons and the stage coach. If the Oregon Short Line does nothing more than give quick transportation and people these great Idaho plains with a prosperous and happy people, it will have accomplished a great work, but it will do far more than that as soon as it becomes a through line to the Pacific coast. % An idea of the volume of the late storm on the Missouri division may be «»tiined from the following as told bv a railroad official to the Mandan Pioneer: At places the heavy track, including the ties and rails, was carried intact a dist ance of one hundred yards from the road bed. The water came down in perfect torrents. It did not take time to rain, and hail fell so rapidly during the pro gress of the storm that in places the ground was covered with hail stones to a depth of five feet. Many places the hail lay two feet deep twenty-four hours after the storm abated, when Assistant Superin tendent Greene and other officials arrived at the scene of destruction. The tracks and bridges have all been temporarily re paired and made perfectly safe. The permanent repairs will require scveiM weeks longer.
