Phone 261 Main ROOSEVELT AND "VARMINTS." President Roosevelt doesn't enjoy shooting ordinary *ame, ducks, snipe, grouse, and the like, which afford so -much pleasure to the ordinary sportsman. Just now a pas sage from an introductory letter which the president wrote for Herbert K. Job's book, "Wild Wings" is pertinently « Tiuoted, as follows: "The older I grow the less I care to shoot anything • 5iceTrt Nrarmlnts.' I do not think it at all advisable that the gur. should be given up. nor does it seem to me that shoot ing wild game under proper restrictions can be legitimately opposed by any who are willing that domestic animals shall be kept for food; but there is altogether too much shooting, and If we can only get the camera In place of the gun, and have the sportsman sunk somewhat In the naturalist and lever of wild things, the next generation will see an im mense change for the better in the life of our woods and waters. But I am still something of a hunter, although a Jover of wild nature first.'' The president prefers mountain lions, grizzlies, bobcats and wolves, the bigger and fiercer wild animals of the forest and the mountains, creatures that nre destructive and some times dangerous and capable only of mischief. It is all -a matter of temperament, of circumstance and opportunity. It is noteworthy, however, that the president does not -dogmatize, or moralize, but simply expresses his own notion and preference. He does not object to the other fellow's «port, because the latter's lasts and disposition may be dif ferent from his own. Not everybody can go to the mountains for big game. ■Very few can. The average boy and man must do his shoot ing in his own neighborhood or at no great distance there from, nor has he the paraphernalia, the time or the financial i means for such a hunt as the president and his party have Just concluded. The best that the most of use can do is to ~. ge out and get a few ducks, prairie chicken or grouse—and * w* Are ltucky if we can do that. - 5 j THE OLD ORDER PAS8ES AWAY. w (Sokesman-Revlew.) In adopting resolutions commending the Northern Pa cific's enterrise in putting on a double night train service be tween Spokane and Lewiston, the chamber of commerce re flected not only the sentiment of the people of Spokane, but -®t the traveling public all along the line between the two «cities. The new service signalizes an Important era in the progress of the Palouse and Clearwater countries.

(Orangeville Standard.* The latest news from the Northern Pacific seems to indicate that that road is going to beat the electric line by weeks, or months, if not years, onto Camas Prairie. Here's to the first road that comes into Orangeville, whether it he the N. P. or the O. R. &- X. or the P. & I. N. or the F. I. B. or the R. A. T. or whatever it Is. It's the rond we want, and it isn't so material what one. But all the same. It is a good time, the best time in the world. to keep pegging away on the electric proposi tion. That is the one road, and the only one. that the people can build. They can make It a sure thing. The siren songs of the other steam roads might induce the people to lay down their advantage already gained, right at a time when they have a sure thing, with four aces to back it. They have all the cards, and can get the spades to begin digging. The steam road might build If the electric road did not. Rut again they might not. If the electric road were allowed to die off right now. with nearly half a million dollars al ready pladged to build It. it might be hard to make another start. The elec Irlf road Is a sure thing, the other roads have been sure things for these many years—but still we don't hear their whistles. The Dalles Canal. (Walla Walla Union.) The plans of Major Langfitt, of the engineers, for the construction of the canal and the locks at The Dalles have been approved by the chief of engi neers, and it Is expected that bids for the construction of part of the work »ill be invited In the near future. the successive changes In modes of transportation. First : mixed trains and easv going schedule. No» comes a double the saddle horse, and after that the covered »agon. Steam navigation marked the next distinct step in the «.ountry'si development. and then came the pioneer railroad. » ith its j m ixd trains and easy going schedule. Now comes a double | nf|fht 9ervice with sIe e P ing cars for the comfort of the night j ; travelers. ! The Spokesman-Review hopes that the Northern Pacific! i will find in this new service the financial success that its en- i terprise merits. | __ ; : Senator Dubois is evidently redeeming the promises made by his advance agent who recently asserted that the , senator had secured J100.000 to establish a line of democratic papers in the state of Idaho to push the anti-Mormon cam paign he means to wage here during the next two years. Report has gone out that he has secured the Evening Cap ital News and the recent utterances of that paper confirm j the report. The press dispatches say that he has attacked the present state administration accusing Governor Gooding of failure to redeem the pledges made the people. It is not likely that Governor Gooding is disturbed by the outburst. He has strengthened his hand with the people in his conduct of the executive office and they are not n> be shaken In their Judgment that he is giving the state a clean, able and business-like administration. It now seems that the good things are all coming In a buiyh in the way of transportation facilities, for there is little doubt that the electric line will be closely followed if not preceded by the construction of steam lines in this territory. Evidence increases to sustain the assertion that the big railroad companies have reached an understanding concerning the Clearwater country and will soon begin the construction of branch lines into this section on a joint traffic agreement extending over a term of years. Mean while the electric line wll be built for the people are be hind the movement and the country will give ample sup port to the proposition. I _ _ Wlll Europe mix in the Russo-Japanese war? That re sult is not Improbable as a study of the events of the past few weeks will show. The attitude of the French in the protection offered the Russian fleet in neutral waters dis closed the fact that England will be a ready ally of the Japanese and will give them support and Emperor William in his speech of yesterday intimated that Germany was ready to step in the breach and stop the yellow peril that Russia had failed to accomplish. Georgia has discovered that it is next to the bottom of tlie list in the amount of its appropriation to advance farm ing interests. A Georgia paper advises the establishment of a "inodernly equipped agricultural college." Other states have tried It and know that it pays. Rural carriers are under contract to deliver mail onily when the roads are open and passable, and routes are not allowed »here the roads are bad. The movement for bet ter highways is backed up by an increasing number of strong considerations. / At the Lewis and Clark exposition Illinois and Nebraska »ill give a moving picture show of their historic buildings nml places. The public seem to take an inexhaustible in terest In this form of entertainment. 1 he indications are that »ithin a year if you want to j g„ to the Camas prairie country and do not care to take t ' 1 k the electric line you can take the "steam kvars". There are about *500.000 available for the commencement of the work. It is proposed to commence at the Celilo, or upper end of the canal, and build down. When the actual work of con struction Is once commenced It will not be difficult to Induce congress to make appropriations for its continuance. It goes without saying that Senator Ankeny will do ail in his power to expedite the construction of the canal. Senator Piles is pledged to give It his support, as Is the Washington delega tion In the house. The Oregon delega tion has long labored for If7 Unless there is a sudden radical change In the views of the powers the work of making the Columbia naviga ble will soon begin and be prosecuted to as speedy completion as the extent and nature of the work will allow. It will be several years, however, before the canal and locks will be ready for : use. In the meantime the portage rail road. built by appropriations hv the Oregon legislature and donations by the people of the Inland empire, will do much to promote the growth and I settlement of the vast areas trihuta to the Columbia and Snake rivers. Ar | rangement* for boats to run on the river In connection with the portage railroad are being perfected and all the Indications are that, long before harvest, a number of boats will once more be plowing the waters of the Columbia.

I The Colorado experiment station at Fort Collins has been distributing W heat for semi-arid lands. This va j riety is called the durum, and it is | claimed that it will yield good crops j on .. Iands of the ^'„d designated. The ! authorities of the experiment siation are so well satisfied on that point that they purchased a large quantity of i seed anil distributed it all over the | state at the actual cost, from 25 to 100 ; pounds being sent to each farmer sup : plied. The railway companies carried , he wheat free and throUfçh them it , has been placed in the hands of the farmers in every portion of the state. As a result the exeriment station will learn what can be accomplished with it under varying conditions presented in that state. The result of the comprehensive ex periment will be of much interest to the people of Idaho. We are already growing wheat on seml-arld lands here, but it is possible that we can learn something from Colorado that will enable us to extend the crop over a very large area. Hundreds of thous ands of acres of land can be found in the southern portion of the state that is extremely fertile but which cannot be irrigated. Much of this lies high enough to be well waterer during the early part of the season, and some of it Is already being used for the production of grain. If Colorado can teach us something on the subject we may he able to cover the now barren hills of many of our counties with wheat fields. Dalles Portage Road. Here is presumably cheap transpor tation afforded by a water route, open to everyone who can command the | limited capital necessary to engage in it. It can now be seen how seriously this new route will cut into the busi ness of the railroads and how much cheaper the new transportation agen cies will be prepared to handle the business than the railroads which now handle it. This will determine whe ther the railroads have been charging exhorbitant prices for transportation. —Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Wheat Outlook. (Northwestern Homeseeker.Y According to reports from the great wheat raising districts of the inland empire, the prospects for an abund ant crop were never brighter. It is confidently predicted by experienced judges who have gone carefully over the eastern Washington, Oregon and northern Idaho wheat belts that the yield will be 10 per cent greater this >ear than last. With continued favor able weather, which has been uniform throughout the wheat districts, and the usual June moisture, the harvest will not only be 30 days earlier than usual, but the yield will break all records.
