The Portland Oregonian says editorially:
Among the towns of Washington terri
tory that are rapidly growing into prom
inence la North Yakima. It la situated
in a country abounding in resources, it
has doubled its population within a year,
and has prospects not inferior to any of
the new towns of the Norihweet.
Lands in the Yakima country are being
entered very rapidly, This is a test of
the resources and prospects of a new
country. The situation of the Yakima
valley renders the climate especially fine.
This is also a great attraction.
The products of the country attest its
fertility, and there are resources besides
in coal and minerals that will become
great auxiliaries in building up the wealth
of the town and country.

The annual meeting of the Dutch Belted
Cattle aasociation waa recently held in
New York City. This association ia en
gaged in raising peculiarly marked cattle.
All this breed have a broad white belt
around the body. Nearly three hundred
yean ago a Dutch nobleman’s wile, who
wished to experiment with cows, tied a
white sheet around one of them. When
the calf waa born it bore the mark of the
sheet. Careful breeding accomplished
thereat
The nobles of Holland decided to keep
these rare cattle among themselves. They
agreed that none should be sold or given
away. H any calf waa defective it was
to be slaughtered. This compact was
kept up for hundreds of yean. Even
now it ia impossible to get a Dutch belted
cow in all Holland.
In some way, no one evey knew how,
P. T. Barman got a couple, and from
these the American race has sprung.
They are aaid to have the beat qualities
of the meet celebrated strains.

Terrible Instances of Beil* Entombed
Dili
The Difficulty ®r Telling the Differ,
ease Between Denth ant n
Mate •« Trance.
“Ah, merciful Qod!” piously exclaims
Camillo, “bow numy living men and
women are annually taken to their
graves!” Were it poraible to get at the
truth the victims in this country alone
might be numbered by many scores—
possibly by hundreds.
Mr. G. Eric Mackay, in Belgravia, gives
a very interesting article on the subject of
“Premature Burials,” in which he points
out how difficult it is to discern death
from a state of trance—indeed, he goes so
far as to claim that the difference baa
never been clearly understood by the
generality of mankind. The article calls
attention to several instances of prema
ture burials on the continent of Europe;
instances which involve stories of trance,
the semblance of death holding its sway
over the human body (or boors and days,
and not merely for minutes, as in the case
of ordinary fainting fits. In his opening
remarks the writer says:
“In days when land ia dear, and burial
rights leas sacred than the rights of build
era and contractor*, coffins have been
opened with the pickax, in the act of con
verting cemeteries into streets and gar
dens. Here a grave has lieen discovered
whoae inmate has turned jn its shroud;
here a corpse clutching its hair in a
strained and unnatural position; dead
men and dead women lying in their
graves as the dead never lie in a Christian
country at the moment of burial." Mr.
Mackay gives an account of a young and
beautiful woman, who, it is supposed,
died of excitement at the prospect of be
ing married. When the first shovelful of
dirt was thrown on the coffin a strange
noise waa heard from the inside. The
coffin was unscrewed, but too late, the
girl was found in an attitude of horror
and pain impossible to describe, her dyes
wide open, her teeth clenched, her hands
clutching her hair; but life was extinct.
An instance showing the utter depravity
of the Italian undertakers and grave dig
gers is given in which they actually tried
to snatch the body of a lady from friends,
one of whom thought she was not dead; as
they were about to drag it from the bed,
the “dead body" moaned, and soon aft
erwards was thoroughly revived by a
medical practitioner of the neighborhood,
and lived to tell the story of her escape
from the tomb. A learned cardinal in
curred the displeasure of the king, and,
on being rebuked, fell to the ground, to
all appearance, dead. It was decided that
the unfortunate cardinal should be em
balmed, but when the surgeons began
their operations the patient awoke, but
too late, for the wounds were mortal. A
case is given in which a young lady arose
out of her coffin and appeared before the
family at supper, “pale and frightened,
but fair to see as before death." The
doctor, the priest, and the undertaker
saw the error of their way, but the priest
alone made amends, by officiating at the
young lady’s wedding a year after he bad
preached her funeral sermon. Petrarch,
when a middle aged man, lay twenty
hours in a trance, and narrowly escaped
being buried alive. We have often heard
the story of the consul’s wife who was
buried alive and released from her pain
ful position by robbers, who broke open
the coffin to steal the lady’s jewelry.
Among the other stories of resuscitated
victims of apparent death, is one of an
old gentleman who was revived by skepti
cal friends putting a burning taper to his
nose. His life was saved but the sad
story of his escape from the very Jaws of
death was ever afterward told by the
scarred and crimson beacon on his face.
A number of stories are given of the
revival of hospital patients after they
have been carried out to the dead boose.
This seems a very common occurrence in
Europe. Two of the most terrible state
ments are of children being born in the
tomb, one of whom, according to Mr.
Mackay, being discovered by a lucky in
cident, lived to be a man, and occupied
for several years the post of lieutenant
general oh the frontiers of Chores. Sev
eral instances are given of persons who
have been cognisant to what was going
on around them, yet powerless to stop
their burial. One case is given of s
achoolmaster, who, had It not ben lor
1 the arrival oI a a later, mild have been
buried alive. The paMionate grief ol the
•later caned the eyelida ol "deceaaad” to
1 quiver and the truth «aa discovered. It
it impoaaible to prolong the Hat ol exam
plea, bat enough hae been already aaid to
I than the wickedneae of hasty funerals,
and the neceaaity o< aaubilabing a proper

cotmtrieaol Europet It la doubtful, if tha

I tricta when good pbysiefana cannot be at

. la Inclined to think that one ol the needs
. at the world at the present moment la a
simple test, sod not a complicated series
of testa, which would be out of the reach
of the poor and beyond the power of In
experienced or badly paid doctors. It
will be reassuring to have that teat as
soon as possible.
mm Wnkogta'i lailrol Talk.
The Northern Pacific board of directors
at their regular meeting in New York,
Feb. 21, approved what is called the ar
bitration contract, which is an agreement
between the Union Pacific and Northern
Pacific railroad companies to place the
control of all competitive lines in eastern
Washington and Oregon in the hands of
five managers, to be appointed by the
parties to the agreement. This will secure
all the advantages to both companies that
would have resulted from a joint lease
of the Oregon Navigation, and at the
same time avoid the responsibility of
guaranteeing dividends on that stock.
The only condition connected with the
contract is the control of the Oregon Nav
igation, and will be obtained through the
sale of the Oregon Navigation stock, now
held by the Oregon TYanacontinental, to a
syndicate. As the Oregon Transcontinental
owns a majority of the Oregon Navigation
stock, and aa four out of six members of
the Oregon Navigation executive com
mittee represent the Northern Pacific and
the other two the Union Pacific, and as
they are all in favor of this contract, no
difficulty is expected.

This great region lien on the west of the
Columbia river. A large section of it is
yet unsettled and only awaits the steady
and enterprising farmer of the east to
take possession of its lands and make it
blossom as the rose. For some eight or
ten miles back the land is somewhat
broken, from here it becomes level, and
the eye can reach for miles and nothing
can be seen, except here and there a
boose, but the tall waving bunch grass.
Its productiveness is unlimited, but the
scarcity of water prevents it from becom
ing populated more rapidly. Springs are
numerous, which is a good indication of
plenty of water, though considerable
depth will have to be gone before it can
be reached. For the growth of trees it is
unequaled, as trees of immense size have
been grown. For illustration, Captain
Perkins has on his place a tree measuring
some nineteen or twenty inches in cir
cumference, which is but three or four
years old. These trees were given no
water except what nature provided for
them and moisture obtained from the
ground. Abundant crops of wheat are
produced. Ths Kelso brothers are farm
ing on a large scale, fanning several thou
sand acres every year. The wheat pro
duced from this land is plump and well
formed and saleable in any market at the
highest prices. In locating a farm a man
can locate in no better farming country
than to pitch his tent in the Horse Heaven
country. It will be but sfshort space of
time, with the tide of immigration that
will seek Washington territory this year,
till this great region will be valuable.
Quarter sections that can now be had for
a song, cannot, in a few years more, be
purchased for several hundred dollars.
So we say to those seeking homes, come
to Horse Heaven, a country that in a lew
years will be one of the richest agricul
tural countries in the territory.— Wallula

The advancement made in medical sci
ence during the last few years has star
tled the world. Yet the thinking man
or woman wonders why the new science
was not promulgated hundreds of yean
•3® and knowing that history so often re
peats itself they have expected to find In
the archeology of the ancients or bidden
In some crypt of Egyptian architecture,
or pyramid, or beneath some symbolical
sphinx records that would show that tbs
ancient man who lived three times as
long as moderns and whose arts and ad
ences are the despair of the present age,
knew of the cell salts of the human or
ganism and applied theur to correct the
disturbances arising in the physical tis
anes from lack of, or proper elaboration of
the life principle. -
The Biochemic or Hiatogenetic system
of medicine makes no claim as a new dia
covery. It only claims to have systema
tised principles as old as tbs universe and
applied them for the cure of disease, ex
actly on the principle that an article of
diet Is selected, or fertilisers are applied
to vegetation, trees, or crops. No one
thinks of eating, for the purpose of re-,
lieving hunger, anything that does not
assimilate with the system and that makes
neither Mood, bone or muscle. Neither
does the intelligent farmer nee as a fer
tilising agent anything forefei to the con
stituent parts of the grain or fruit or veg
etable to be grown.
But in the medical science of
the past all science and the law of natural
selection sesm to have been ruthlessly ast
aside and guesses substituted instead.
Hence the use of drags entirely foreign to
the inorganic Saha of the Body and de
structive to the living tfesoes became uni
versal.
The effort the system pole forth to rid
iteelf of alcohol, quinine and other dele
terious drugs ia Himulaiion. No medicine
can have a beneficial effect that will not
assimilate with the tone In the human
organism and His well known that stim
ulants and cathavtica do not so assimilate.
The new treatment of disease is making
rapid strides and bids fair to replace aU
systems that are not founded on natural
laws.
THEY IAKT OFFICE
In «bo in Willing to StcrUco Them-
Mlns (or the Good of tholr Com try.
Patriots who will Ur AsMe their
iepsissse* to Office-Molting
out Nerve If Called Upon.
The men who have the moat to trouble
them now are those who are looking for
office. They are they who lie awake at
nights and think over what they have
done for their party, and the various sets
of generosity or kindness which they
have done to men who have influence and
which they propose to urge in behalf of
their aspirations. How competent they
appear in tbe'r own eyes! How they de
plore the fact that there is doubt about
the accuracy of their judgment! How
embarrassing to become the victim of
xmaideration of expediency! Have they
not been loyal? Have they not done
much work? Have they not earned In
fluence ? Why should not their claims be
recognised without question? These are
the exclamations of the average office
seeker. These are the questions pro
pounded to the moon and stars during
wakeful nights. Of course there are some
whom the office seeks. These men do
not care much one way or another. They
are the fortunate fellows.
It would be difficult to enumerate all of
the men who are looking forward to po
litical preferment, but a good many names
can be given which will be of most inter
est.
Mr. Watson C. Squire will most prob
ably succeed Governor Semple, if the lat
ter resigns. No other candidate has
loomed up who will in any way embar
rass Mr. Squire. His name will be pre
sented to President Harrison endorsed by
all the leading republicans of the territory.
It is understood that Mr. Squire docs not
desire the office, but will will submit to
the wishes of his political associates. The
fact that Mr. Squire has already served ns
territorial governor will likely operate
to his advantage. A chief consideration.
however, is that he is in harmony with
all the republican leaders of the territory.
But there is now some doubt about Gov
ernor Berople resigning. He is inclined
to change his original intention of doing
so, and may stay until he is removed.
Mr. C. H. Hanford, who was a member
of the law firm of Greene, Hanford, Mc-
Naught A McQraw, previous to the retire
ment of En-Chief Justice Greene from
the practice of law, will be endorsed by
the republican leaders for chief justice to
succeed Chief Justice Burke, who deter
mined when he assumed the duties of the
office, at a very considerable personal sac
rifice, to resign soon after March 4th next.
Mr.' Hanford is an experienced lawyer,
and not only by reason of his legal attain
ments, but by disposition, also, is well
adapted to the duties of the office. It is
not believed that be will meet with any
opposition.
There will be a lively struggle for the
office of United States district attorney.
Sam Hyde, the great big brbther of Mr.
Eugene B. Hyde, councilman elect from
Spokane district, is a candidate and has
very strong support. He is a good lawyer,
stands well among the political leaders,
and the cards, so to speak, are running
very much in hia favor. His brother has
a person acquaintance with President
Harrison, and has the distinction of be
ing the only member of the delegation to
the national republican convention from
Washington territory who voted for Oen.
Harrison first, last and all the time. Mr.
Eugene Hyde’s right hand man is Mr.
John L. Wilson, also of Spokane, who
not only took the stump in Indiana dur
ing the last campaign for Oen. Harrison,
but has the advantage of having been a
member of the Indiana legislature when
General Harrison was elected to the U. 8.
senate, and of having helped elect him.
The only possible embarrassment is that
Mr. Henry L. Wilson, bis brother, is a
candidate for U. 8. marshal. Mr. Wil
son was the first man to raise General
Harrison’s banner in the presidential race
In an Indianapolia newspaper. However,
if Seattle secures the governor and chief
justice, the great men of this city will
probably not be disinclined to hold out
an olive branch to Spokane by supporting
both Hyde, lor district attorney, and H.
L. Wilson of U. S. marshal. Of course,
there may be a hitch if Governor Semple,
District Attorney White and Marshal
Hamilton refuse to resign. This will com
pel President Harrison, should be desire
to Help the leaders out of such an embar
rassment, to remove these officers. You
cant always sometimes tell Just what a
president wiU do, and President Harrison
has given some evidence already that his
course cannot be safely predicted. How
ever, then is no doubt about Chief Jus
tice Burks resigning. Seattle men might
be satisfied if the assistant district attor
neyship was given to a man of their se
lection. If this is dons Mr. R. B. Albert
son will in all probabilities, be the man.
Mr. E. M. Irwin, of Endicott, wants the
marabalship, too. He was a leading
member of the house in the last legisla
ture. J. C. Arnold of Waitaburg, wants
this office. Two years ago he went over
to the prohibitionists and this will prob
ably kill his chances.
Mr. B. W. Coiner, of Tacoma, is also a
candidate lor United States district attor
ney, and Mr. Huson, of the law firm of
Sews, Evans * Boson, is floating with
the place or trying to do so.
Auditor John Miller Morphy does not
propose to resign, and His not known at
this writing just who would like to have
the office. It is no sinecure and will not
be struggled for except by men who either
want tiie place very bad or see in it a
stepping stone to higher things. Ex-Audi
tor Reed is understood to want to be the
first state auditor, and for this reason be
might be persuaded to put on the shoes
he laid away before Mr. Morphy took
hold.
Ex-Treasurer McMicken will be satisfied
if he secures his old place. Mr. HcMkkeo
wants to live in Olympia and ia under
stood to prefer that office to even a better
one whkh would require him to move
away.
General Ross Q. O’Brien wants to fluc
ceod Secretary Owing*, and has secured
very substantial influence. Mr. Owing*
himself wants the office and will try hard
to keep his seat. President Cleveland re
cently offered the place to James Hamil
ton Lewia of this city, but Mr. Lewis de
clined, because, be said, he had endorsed
a friend for the position. This would in
dicate that even President Cleveland has
grown tired of Mr. Owinga. It moat be
very embaraMiDflMhat is, it would be to
any man possessing sensibilities.
Mr. O. C. White, of Dayton, member
of council in tiie last legislature, wants to
be register of the land office in Walla
Walla. No one doubts Mr. White’s qual
ifications. His popularity as a party
worker will bring him much influence.
Whether the fact that he voted for the
lately knocked oat woman suffrage law
will interfere with his chances cannot
now be stated, but Mr. White is pretty
clever, and politics make strange bed-fel
lows sometimes.
Mr. Thomas U. Brents ia spoken of as
a candidate for commissioner of the gen
eral land office. While it may be a mis
take to say that he 4a a candidate, it ia
pretty certain that he would accept the
office if it was offered to him, and would
probably do some work to get it, if the
chances appeared to favor him.
Albert H. Winstrode, of Port Townsend,
a former Indianian, wants to be collector
of customs.
In this city Col. George G. Lyon to after
the postofflce and the chances are mightily
in his favor, although Mr. A. M. Brookes,
formerly a partner in basineu with Mr.
S. Baxter, is potting in an oar.
Of coarse there are many other candi
dates. The woods are fnll of them. A
list of the names of the candidates for
office should conclude in the words of the
old time vendue bills, namely, “and others
too numerous to mention.—Seattle Budget.
A Pretty Seitißfit.
M. D. Egbert, writing from Wall* Walla
to the Seattle Sunday Budget, geta off the
following pretty conceit: “Got any but
tercup* over there? We have here lota
of ’em. You ought to eee them, and yon
ought to eee the children with their bas
ket* and knives digging them from among
the rocks and gravel out on Sooth Second
street, where the little ones go of evenings
and have a picnic. You aee, the other
day a soft wind came up from the ocean,
and first it took the white crowns from the
high peaks, and shook the snow from the
branches of the dark fir trees, and loosened
the frost king’s fingers from the tamar
acks. Then it came down the mountains
to the fields of fallow, and in a twinkling
gave them a coat of sombre hue; then on
to the wheat fields, where the snow melted
into the mellow earth and the grain nod
ded and laughed in the breath of spring.
Then it tangled the long grass to the
brooks where the rabbits hide, and pass
ing on down to the breast of the glad
waters to the fields where the buttercups
slept, with his warm breath be stopped
and kissed them into radiant life; and as
the cbinook passed on down our loved
valley to the hills beyond, be Ml the
fields all fragrant and abloom with a mil
lion flowers with hearts of flame. So
wherever you go in the unbroken globe
hereabout you can gather to your heart’s
content these lovely and loved harbingers
of fruitful days to come.”
