For years the people of the Inland Empire have waited in hopes that the Columbia would be an open river, and navigation made possible from the ocean inland for hundreds of miles. The hope is evidently about to be realized. The mills of God have been grinding out this problem for years, and at last a satisfactory plan has been evolved and adopted. All that remains to be done before the work begins on the canal is to secure to the general govern ment a right-of-way and this is not likely to cause delay, although the 0- W. R. & N. people, should they be dis posed to make trouble, they might keep work at a standstill for a time. This huge project is an improvement too great to Be measured or properly ap preciated. It will settle the freight question to the satisfaction of the peo ple. The passenger business will be of no small proportion and one of our big attractions to the tourist will be the 600 mile rivei trip from the ocean into Idaho. It is impossible to estimate all benefits which the Pacific Northwest will derive from this belated enter prise. Portland, of course, will be benefitted most, and another big trail will be established leading to that city. The $4,000,000 which the improvements will cost is no small mstter. Portland will get most of this, but, after all, such a sum dropped anywhere in the north coast country is a benefit to all. It is well for us to bear in mind that in less than a hundred years the Pacific States will be the scene of far greater commercial activity than the Atlantic coast. Geo. D. Peters and Rev. Wilkinson were Prosser visitors Wednesday. R. W. French, "mayor" of Badger, was in Kennewick Wednesday on busi ness. The cemetery association will meet Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 16th with Mrs. L. W.

The new home of Lewis Bliss on the Highlands is nearly completed and will soon be occupied by the owner who will move from the Mc Reynolds house which he has been occupying. J. E. McKinney, who has been in charge of the Pasco house of the Chas. H. Collins Co. for some months, is now representing that firm on the road and left on his first trip through the Yak ima valley towns last Tuesday. Poor old "Bill, the Pelican," is dead. Banta thought he was a swan and trotted out his old 12-gauge and nearly blew poor "Old Bill's" head off in his eagerness. Mrs. Banta thought he was a stork when she first saw him—now she's glad he wasn't. "Old Bill" has been one of the land marks around this county for many years past, making quite frequent visits to the "Big Wat ering Place" five or six miles up the river. Old timers around here will mourn the loss of "Old Bill," but R. L. is tickled to death about it. He was so glad to get him that he spent good money in having the big bird embalmed, and visitors to the Banta place will first be shown what's left of "Old Bill." He has been given a place of honor, standing alongside the whatnot and the album. He was considerable bird, measuring eight feet from tip to tip— at least R. L. says so; and talk about a big bill—why that pelican had a bil nearly as large as the P. P. & L. 's.
