THE OtD MAIL CAEEIEB, *T Thram p. Mrafort, Author or 1888, by the Author ] "Seems queer thet ther mail ain't in yit," remarked Rube Hutching, as he peered ont of the door of the little building at the Cross Roads, which answered the purposes of postoffice and general merchandise store, and which in connection with old Blakeley's blacksmith shop made up the business portion of the town " 'Pearshke old Ike is gittin' slower an' ·lower every week," Babe continued, after long look down the narrow lane leading from the direction of the county seat, and satisfying himself that old Ike, the mail earner, was nowhere m sight "Yes, an' it's er shame,' old man Bentley remarked, "thet ther government don't put somebody to carrjm' uv ther maU who Ion git here on tune with it It e an hour late now, an it's bin thet way fer ther last month " "The roads air m er bad fix, boys, ez ye all know, an' it's hardly fair ter expect Ike ter git in on time," said Col Dodson, the Cross Roads postmaster and storekeeper "It's erbout all er feller kin do now ter git erlong at all, an' it s'prises me that old Ike gits hero ez soon ez he does " "But it's bin this way," objected Dan Hawkins, "when the roads wus good, an* tney wa'n't no 'scuse fer it then If they's anything in the world I do detest, it s ter hev the mails delaved, an' 'specially when I'm expectin' nv important letters " "That's my fix," said Ben Hobbs, "an' I think they orter be a change nv earners Old Ike is gettm' too slow, an' a younger man orter be put in his place " "It's a httlo mcomement, I know," the postmaster said, in a conciliating tone, '(bat old Dee's bin carrym' uv ther mail for twenty-five years, an' he's alles bin hones' ,an' accommodatin', an' now, when he's old, I feel like ez if we orter km" uv look over him if he is sorter slow " "I don't think so," said Robe "Jest 'cause a feller's bin nones', wmch he orter be, an' sorter 'commerdahn', it don't signify thet the whole neighborhood orter be put ont a-waitin* for ther maU ever' week JEI old Ike can't git here on time let 'im jtnt an' giv' ther job ter sumbuddy whut kin Fer my part, I think it's tune we wus hevin' nv er change, an' I'll sign er petition to thet effeck " The rest of the seven or eight men who were present agreed with Rube and signified their willingness to sign the petition asking for Ike's removal 1 he postmaster tried as best he could to argue Ike's cause but the men refused to listen* and accordingly it was decided to get up the petition at once "Jake, you've teached school and bein' squire, an' know all about sich things," Said Rnbe, " 'spore you draw up the ar- tikel Aint none uv the rest uv us knows anything erbont law " Jake Hopkins came forward, and after several moments of close application with pencil and paper produced the following "To whom it May concern, know All men by those presents, whereas Ike Warren is gettm' old an' unfit For carryin' uv ther mails atwixt the comity Seat An Rocky Knob an' whereas Ther mails has bin late neerly Ever week, Kesohed, That we ther undersigned pat- ions nv ther Office respectfully ax fer er change an' deman' thet Ike be removed an' a younger man Be Put in his place " The petition was read and pronounced correct, after which they all signed it ex cept the postmaster "No, I won't sign it, boys," he said when urged to do so "I s'pose I git ea much mall es any o' you, an* mebby more but it ain t no great in convenience ter me if ther mail is er little late, an' besides I know old Ike is poor an' his wife's sick, and he hain't got nothm' ter depend on 'cephn' ther little pay he gits for carryin' ther mail I don't feel like es If I orter sign that paper " "I sympathize with Ike," Jake replied, "es much es anybody km, but I don't see no sensem ther government payin' a man J16 a month fer carryin' the mail unless he s able ter git here without bein' alias late " While the little group at the Cross Roads were engaged m getting up a petition to have Ike removed the feeble old earner was patiently budging along the muddy roads, making such time as his frail limbs were capable of doing For twenty five years he had earned the little weekly mail up to the Roads, and whether the weather had been fair or foul, he had never failed to make the trip, though sometimes he was a httle late He had gone when the sky was clear and the earth fair, and when the air was laden with the nch perfume of the ·wild roses and the clover blossoms and the birds cheered his weary steps with sweet carols from the forest trees along the wayside He had gone, too, when the clouds hung low and dark, and the cold winter blasts swept the dry snow in blinding storms around him As the postmaster said, old Ike had been honest and accommodating, and when he some days arnved at the Cross Roads a few minutes or an hour late, no ono regretted it more than himself Often the way had seemed long and the mail pouch heavy, and sometimes he had felt that he must sit down by the roadside to rest his aching limbs But he knew the people would be waiting, and he could not stop to rest lest he be late But to-day as he tramps weanly along narrow lanes he is bearing a burden on his heart that is much heavier than the mail pouch on his shoulder So great is the weight of the of the one that he forgets the pressure of the other, and when at last he reaches his journey's end and deposits the pouch on the old counter back of the little delivery, he sinks down in a chair and has head drops on his breast The bystanders gather around, and even the postmaster, forgetting the mail, comes around to see what is the matter They take him up and lay him on the counter, and the thin lips mo\e and the dim eyes glance from face to face and a feeble smile passes over his features "Git some water," Rube commands at the same tune holding the old earners head in his arms "He's fainted, I guess A little cold water will bring him around again " After a time the sufferer began to revive a httle, when he started up, exclaiming 'Is she here' Tilda, 'I mean Didu t yon see her'' ^He's bred out,' the postmaster said Did you come forme, Tilda?" old Ike continued "I coming d'rectlv I'm a little late to^ay, but thl roadTare so bad and the wind is so cold I v, 0 nld like to sit down here and rest, but the people will be waiting up atthe Roads for thVmail an' I mus n't keep 'em waitm' no more n I tan he-p The pouch is so heavy and the hills is so long an' so steep But I'll soon be there an' then I'll come home, 'Tilda III come home " ' Then he lay back and closed his eyes and was very still for several minutes Again rousing up, he said I haled to go this morning, Tilda, and leave you, but you know this is the day to carry the mail up to the Cross Roads, and the people will be there expecting it, and I jan't disappoint them I've never missed 4 day m twenty-five years, an' I mus'n't miss this tune 111 come home early for though the roads is bad an' the \iaIUn' tiresome, I'll hurry as fast as I kin an git home soon " "We'd better get the doctor, hadn't we ? ' ^sked Jake Hopkins, "fer I feel 'sif Ike's in er bad way " "Yes, we'd better hev ther doctor," the postmaster replied "I dunuo not bin' erbont sickness, but I wouldn't be s'prised if he was pooty bad off " 3Qia doctor eama after a tuna, felt the old carrier's poise, looked at his tongue, and shook his head. "Is he bad?" Babe inquired "Yes, he'll die." "I'm a comin', Tilda The Roads is in sight now, an* they's only one more hill ter climb. I'm tared, an' the mail's heavy, but I'll harry es fast es I kin, an' I'll soon be home The people isa waiting op tothe office fer ther mail, an' I'm a httle late, but 111 soon be there lortentagone to-day, fer you wus sick an' the roads wns bad, but the people would a bin disappointed ef I hadn't I'll be home soon I'm neerly up to the top o' the hill now," he continued as a smile came over his features, "an" the lane is smooth an' dry The mud is all gone, an' the winds has quit blowm', an' the sun is shimn' so bright an' fair The air is full o' the scent o' wild roses and clover blossoms, an' the birds are singm' so merrily down in the forest I hear emgm', too, an' some o' the sweetest music I ever heard I'd hke to sit down here in the shade an' rest by the babbhn brook while the cool breezes fan my heated brow an' cheek, but I can't to- dav, for I'm a little late, an' the people will be waitin' for me at the Roads " For a httle while the earner lay still, with his eyes closed and his hands folded, while a smile of sweet contentment spread over his wasted and weather beaten face Then his lips moved, and m words heard only by Rube and the postmaster who bent over him, he muttered "I'm comm', 'Tilda The road is dry now, an' I don't feel tired at all The mail is in at the Roads, an' I m comm'--homo --to--my--dear--wife--mj--"Tilda." Gently they laid the aged head back on the counter, and as gently closed the eyes that were forever shut to the scenes of earth The old earner had brought the mails for the hist tame He was done with the muddy roads and the storms, and had gone beyond to join his faithful "Tilda who had preceded him but a few houra before Jake Hopkins took the petition he had written asking for Ike's removal from his pocket,and twisting it up, he looked at the others, and they as if comprehending his meaning, nodded assent, when the stove door was gently opened and the petition cast into the flames Not a word was spoken, but as the men received then- mad and departed from the nwm, not one of them but felt a pang of regret for having signed his name to the paper asking for the removal of old Ike, the faithful earner, whose last work on earth was in the line of his duty NEWS OF THE UOBTHWEST THE TBEASUBY SURPLUS Why Hot Expend It In Fublio Worts aid Improvement Actually Hecdod? SPOKASK FAILS W T , May 5 TO THB EDrtOB OF THE OREOONIAN In all that has been written in the news papers and magazines on the tariff reduction question and in all that has been and is being said in congress on the same subject I have not seen anywhere the suggestion that perhaps the whole question could be settled (except for the irreconcilable free traders) by spending our surplus revenue instead of reducing it, hoarding it up or buying bonds at 26 per cent, premium as is now being done It seems to be assumed by republicans and democrats alike that the revenue needs reducing the only question being as to the best method by which this reduction can be accomplished But can it be denied that a very large portion if not all the BUT plus could be judiciously and advantageously disposed of m public works and im provements that the country absolutely needs and that, in many cases ordinary prudence demands? Samuel J Tilden and Mr Blaine alike have called attention to the need of adequate coast defenses From Maine to * lorida along the Gulf and up the Pacific coast we have not a single fort that could protect our cities from bombardment by either the English French or Italian navies We all republicans and democrats alike know this and freely acknowledge that it is a national danger vet neither party is brave enough to take the initiative in advocating a strong coast defense policy If the republicans would place such a plank in their platlorm and live up to it thev could enforce their position with democratic thunder in the shape of Tilden s let- tor on the subject and it would be hard for their opponents to attack them without at the same time attacking the great demo cratic sage and saint who nas so lately passed away There is a great cry about extending our foreign commerce and we are told that free trade will at once accomplish this By all means let us extend our commerce every American will say amen to thla suggestion but many of us doubt the efficacy of free did not rely exclusively on this panacea to build up her merchant manne, she spent millions in subsidizing ocean lines to foreign countries and the colonies and the English merchant could consequently obtain trans portation rates for his exports that enabled him to lay down his goods at the door of his foreign customer at figures that defied com petition This is the secret of his business sue cess far more than any free trade policy Our government on the contrary has never done much of late years at least in this direction But wherever the policy was tried (with Bra zil and on the Pacific for instance ) it has alwjys produced the most satisfactory re suits Let us spend a few of our surplus millions in tills direction, and wipe ont the disgrace of having even our mails carried in foreign bottoms as at present And then what pittances we are spending for river and harbor improvements com pared to what we should expend kot to speak of the Atlantic coast or the Mississippi \ allev here m Washington and Oregon what ttork 19 not needed on the Sound and the Columbia and its tributaries to make them the great waterways that theyihould be? The interests of the farmers as much as those of the merchants demand that these Improve ments should be made and at once Good waterways prevent railroad monopolies and insure low transportation rates Public buildings owned by the government and sufficiently commodious to allow of its business being properly transacted are need ed ali over the land but nowhere more than in the Northwest, the rapid development of which seems to be httle understood or appre ciated by the sages at Washington There is room for wise expenditures of public moneys m nearly all the departments of the government especially in the post office which in the West Postmaster Gen enl Dickin on to the contrary notwithstand iiiK 1-1 simply villainous buppleuientmg our coast defenses and the extension of our commerce is the need for a navy worthy of a nation like ours !\ot a fen dispatch boats but men of war that can enforce respect for our tovernment and pro tect our merchant marine nhen the need arises The building of a government tele graph system is al o an uleii Ih it possibly might deserve to be undertaken by the ROV ernment All these projects and the leaders of both parties as well as their platforms have at one time or another endorsed them would enable us to spend our surplus wisely and advantage ously They would give n ork to millions they would build up our iron shipping and other industnes and would draw enough men from agricultural pursuits to leave more money and better markets for the farmers that remained at the p'ow Wheat would not be 43 cents and even less per bushel as it is now at many poults, because of its over £ reduction and the farmer would get the igher price cheerfullv, because where work and money are plenty people do not com plain of hard tunes This is a better plan than paying off a debt that nobody feels, and creditors who don t want their mone It would be practically borrowing mouej under government auspices from the nch for the poor at three per cent and allowing the former to pay for it in labor This la just what the Knights of Labor and other similar organizations have been clamoring for A policj of this kind means good times and plenty for all It means happy homes for the laborer and mechanic eood markets for the farmer and a reasonably return on his money to the capitalist and manufacturer More than this, it means permanent success for the party that has the courage" to Jtdvodafc and carry ft thraaab.

one ten and one five dollar piece besides about three hundred dollars worth of gold dual was the amount found It was evident from appeir ances that this bod\ was fearfully mangled and hence it is

kloochmcn as ht desired but was not required to niarrv any of them The department at Washington hearing ot tins, instructed Agent Eels to put a stop to it and to require each man living thus to select

refusing to allow them to worship their ' bahale Tyee according to a plan which has recently come into vogue among them They have made known their grievance to Gen R H Milroy ex Indian agent for this district whom they deem as their great protector and mend and have requested bun to secure them the privilege of worshiping as they see fit Their religion is of recent origin and it is said by those who are acquainted with the tribe adopting it that superstitious and ridiculous as me belief is it has seemed to be prolific of much good among them, probably owing to the fright with which it inspires them, and not from any sense of right or a desire to please their "Sahale Tyee They style their new belief the Slocum Tumtum " it having ongimted with one of the Squakson tribe named John Sloe am Borne time ago John claimed to have been favored with a revelation from the happy hunting ground" in which it was revealed to him that any Indian desiring to participate in the festivities of the 'sahale illahe" must lead a purely upright life it being necessary for such Indian to abstain from afl gambling, drinking, swearing etc The announcement of this alleged revelation by Slocum has made him BO prominent a personage among his dusky believers that he is now re gardeu with much more reverence than the " Hyas Tyee," of whom he claims to be an apostle Their mode of worship is in some respects similar to that practiced by the Quakers years ago each one sneaking or acting as the spint moves him The result is frequently verv ludicrous to an unbelieving spectator Before beginning a meeting they always select a leader whose duty it is to go into a trance When hi this state the leader's influence over his believing auditors seems to be without limit. The meetings usually last several hours, being terminated when the leader's trance i at an end This wild belief and practice h%s occupied the attention of Agent Eells for some time who has at hut interfered and announced that the new llUgion must be abolished This has led to 4*eenera! remonstr mce from the disciples of trfc Blocuru Tumtum who desire to continue their mode of worship l-KOSI HEFFNLR The Efficient Postal Service-- Gearfn stands no Chance of a majority In Eastern Oregon.
