Handley & I'mm fire our Portland ugents and copies of the Astorlan can te had every morning at their stand on First street TUB NICARAGUA CANAL. It will be a shameful mistake If the present sennlon of congress Is allowed to adjourn without some definite action in fnvr of one or the other of the proposed plans for the construction of the Nicar agua canal. The Ban Francisco Journal of Commerce has lately devoted some editorial space to that subject, but with this exception It Is impossible to find a lino or a word with reference to the matter In any of the great newspapers on the Coast. While this great work Is of national Importance, it Is of especial concern to this section of the country, There Is good re.son to believe If the papers of the west would take the fiues- ( tlon up and continue from now on a sclcss agitation for Immediate action by congress great good might be done. Eastern people visiting San Franclcco have been heard to express great aston ishment at the Indifference shown by thp press of that city towards the pro- Ject, and It cannot be doubted by anyern .n,!,, anu having no lumber constant reader of these papers that region of its own to protect will nntur- there Is too much truth In the criticism. There Is room for tho' suspicion that the groat trans-continental railroad corpor ations are responsible somehow for this lack of Interest, Just as they umiuea tlonably are for the failure to complete the government Improvements on the Upper Columbia river. If It Is the olley of the peoplo to simply wait for con gressional action, on tho theory that It Is one of those great national concerns, tho business of no body In particular to interfere with, and that It Is bound to come In time anyway, they are simply making one of the greatest mistakes possible. It Is of concern to jicople if nil sections of the country, and will of course be built sometime within the next fifty years, but with the decided opposition already developed In certain quarters of the cast ugulnst it, unless the peoplo of the west Insist upon some Immediate uctlcn In the premises the canal will ncer do any one now living any good As Important as It Is that the canal should bo under the control of this government, and tho management of none but Its loyal citizens, It would be Infinitely better for this section that It be built under some form of Interna tional agreement than to wait the slow process of educating the fur eastern and southern public to see and appreciate the advantages of such national control. England and other great nations would furnish the money and Jump at the change to build the canal under Inter national stipulation that it should be maintained at all times as a neutral highway. There Is reason to fear the people are not olive to the Importance of the subject, and the public man or newspaper that may succeed in arous ing them to some Immediate action will perform a service never to be forgotten. The people of Oregon havw good cause for rejoicing over the election returns already in, and the prospect that later reports will how even more nUlnfactory results for the friends of good govern ment and in favcr of the restoration of the fame and credit of the state The world will now know that there are enough sensible and well balanced peo ple to hold In check the gang of dlsor gangers and revolutionists who have terrorUeil the state, and by the mere loudness of their clamor smred th timid Into the belief that peace and gocd order at home would soon be a ininf or ine past, ana me creuu or. tne tate permanently impaired abroad. No little niaise for the victory la due to a amull element of the Democratic party hl!? tn jm,riMn and rHinur to rW above party prejudice anil Influence 1 and which rallied to the support of the Republican candidates in certain doubt ful sections of the state. TH'13 LUMBER MARKET. The Telegraph a few days ago pointed out that owing to the shortage In the supply of growing timber in Wisconsin and Michigan the mills in what Is known as tho Middle river section of the Mississippi valley were being closed and that a largp area, which usually consumed on an average 700,000,000 feet of lumber, would have to look to the south or the northwest for its supply. We find In the Tacoma Ledger a very Interesting article bearing upon this point from which we quote. The article refers to the early connection of the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy with the Northern Pacific at Hillings, and says: It is Important because it opens up the whole of the vast lower Missouri river country to practically direct con nection with the Bound. All this vast region consumes lumber and produces none. The Burlington railroad system, with more than 8,000 miles of track has no lumber Interest in Its territory to foster. The Immense territory through v.hlch It' runs has long been supplied from the pineries of Wisconsin, Michi gan nml the south. it Is a wr-nlthy region, producing more corn, pork and beef than that covered by any other railroad, besides a large amount of wheat and other farm products, and a large proportion of minerals. Heretofore we have been ahle to send some lum ber Into this region by way of St. Paul and Chicago, and Oregon has sent some oer the" Union Pacific, but scarcely more bus gone than enough to Introduce It und make people fumlllar with Its superior Qualities. The distance hue been bo great because of the round about route, and ratos so high that we have never been able to compete with the pineries of the east and south upon anything like fulr terms. Hut by the completion of this cut-off, now under construction, and In fact nearlng completion, Omaha, Kansas City and Denver will be as accessible to the product of our lumber and shingle mills as St Paul Itself. The treeless ado and the great areas of Iowa, Mln- I sourl, South Dakota und Eastern Wyo- mtlg wm ie al4 accessible to us as If the Burlington were already, extended "ere direct, wo snuu pernaps not ,m- nietlliueiy k l liic iuii uA.vann.Bc w competing rates, but we shall have some advantage In this direction, and It will bo considerable because the Burlington will no longer be affected by arrange ments with parallel lines, drawing their ilnmlwr fivlirht wholly from their east- ally seek all the business from this dl rectlon It can obtain. i The completion of this cut-oft Is of far more Importance to this state than tho extension of the Union Pacific from Portland to the Sound could possibly be, for the reason that It oiiens up to us a much larger area, a better area for our purposes, and because the Union Paclllo already has a lumber supply from Oregon, while the Burlington, by this cut-off, will get Its entire supply from Washington. As this connection will bo completed In a few weekB it is already time we should begin to be alive to tho advantages It will offer. Some of our business men are already awake to it. They are making known In this new market, one of the most ex tensive that will ever be open to us, the advantages of what we have to sell. They will be the first to reap the ad vantages of the extended trade that must soon begin. If others would share It with them they will need to be mov ing. The state and the city are inter ested, and ought to be more deeyly In terested In their success, for their pros perity must man prosperity for all. Seattle Telegraph. FREQUENT ONSLAUGHTS On the delicate membrune of the bowels und stomach with drastic purgatives must have their natural consequences to weaken and disable both organs. Nature exacts severe penalties, for In fringements of her laws, and there is no more gluiing one thun that which consists In frequent and unnecessary dosing with violent cathartics.. This is, however, the course pursued by many unwise people who seem to think that the bowels, unless constantly relaxed, are not In a, healthy state. When a laxa tive Is really needed, Hostetter's Stom ach Hitters Is the safest and most thorough, it neither gripes nor oper ates violently or excessively. It In vigorates the In'estines and stomach, and arouses the liver. Regularity and vigor are guaranteed by its use. Sleep promoted, appetite restored, are among Its benign effects. A tendency to rheu matism and kidney trouble Is nullified by It, and It completely eradicates ma larial complaints. FOUND THEM THE BEST.
