THE NEW MODEL Tub most important state niattor now demanding the attention of con gress is the improvement o the bar at the mouth of the Columbia river. It is a "work that requires consider able expenditure. The necessity is imhorsally conceded. The board of visiting engineers in their report set forth what is believed to be the only adequate means of improvement the bnildiiiR of a mole from Point Adams in a northwesterly direction. Dredging, or scratching is of no avail and has been abundantly proved. Our congressional delegation owe it to themselves, to the state they repre sent, and the commercial interests of the commonwealth to make this mat ter one ot special showing on their part. The completion of the North- ern Pacific railroad matres the im provement of the bar more than ever an imperative necessity. Tux British lair-Trade Associa tion has again brought up the matter of imposing an import duty on all American wheat entering Groat Brit ain. It is witliin fhe limits of possi bility that their arguments may pre vail.
