"GREAT CRY AND LITTLE WOOL."
Tbe Republican orators throughout |
tbis csnvaßß hove been making a great
deal of noieo nboat tbe protection that
the McKinley bill gave to the wool
growers of California, and bays been
predicting misfortunes, dire aod irre
mediable, to grow oat of tbe new tariff
Tbs MoKinley bill closed tbe port of
San Francisco to Australian wool because
tbe woolen mills of that oity could not
afford to pay the McKinley duty on tbat
staple in addition to $5 per ton for Na
naimo coal to mako steam. The Ore
gon mills, running entirely by water
power and being at no expense for fuel,
took advantage ol this and ran day and
night, making more money in the three
years of the McKinloy bill tban the?
had tnado in tbe twenty years previous.
With tbe woolen mills of San Fran
cisco closed to the wool-growers oi thia
state, and no other home market open
to tbem, tbe wool-growers were then
obliged to ship their wool east and take
snch tigutes aa tbe eastern buyers saw
lit to allow. After paying railway
freight, interest, storage, exchange, in
surance and other charges, real and
constructive, there was little or nothing
left lor the primary producer.
Today under the new tariff bill,
wbicb lets in Australian wool free of
duty, tbe price of wool iv San Francieco
is two cents per pound (for high quality)
more tban it waa ninety days ago when
tbe McKinley law was in full force and
effect. Tbo cause of this rise in the
price of the home-grown article ia tbat
Australian wool can now be bad for
warp lor live-andlet-live pricos and the
Ban Francisco woolen inilla will soon be
running on full time.
We are aware that the San Francisco
woolen mills employ a good deal of
Chinese labor, which is no great cause
for congratulation. But they also em
ploy white labor ia the ratio of 0 to 20
•nd they keep the money in the etate
tbat baa been, for the last three years,
going to tho eastern states aud to Ore
gon for blankets and casaimeres. With
tbe San Francieco mills once more open
and tbe apindles going all day, oar
wool-growers will bave a home market
for their produots and be free from ths
tyranny of overland railway tariffs.
The idea that the tariff on wool had
• anything to do with ita pries, haa
always been an abenrdity. In 1871 Ore
gon wool cold from 21 ta 24 cents, ac
cording to quality. In tbe following
winter, congress paessd tbs Morrill
tariff wbich raieeJ ths doty on wool
over one-fifth; and yet, in the summer
of 1872 the beat Oregon wool had de
clined to 20 cents, with 17 to 18 for the
inferior gradea. Tbe same waa true of
California grown woola, which dropped
from 22 to 16 cents inaide of one year.
It ia tbe inexorable law of supply and
demand wbich regulatea tbe price of
wool in America—and everywhere else.
HILL ON DEMOCRACY.
Ever since the day that Senator Hill
stepped forward in the United Statea
eenate and manfully took hia stand with
Preaident Cleveland in favor of free raw
materials, in a speech full of wil and
wisdom, he bas steadily grown in the
estimation of those who bad claaaed bim
among statesmen of the second rank.
Even the mugwump now refraina from
designating bim ss "a peanut politi
In hia great apeeob opening the New
York campaign tbe senetor appeared to
ths beat advantage. Dignified, cour
teous in tbe treatment of hia opponenta,
but inolaive in hia analysis of the situa
tion, he added new distinction to hia
candidacy. "Fact] and arguments are
tbe weapona which I eball invoke," eaid
be, "rather tban vilification and vitu
peration. In great political contests
measures, not men, ehould be essen
tially the controlling factors." He dis
closed in the opening of bis speech a
political etate of affaire in New York not
unlike that wbicb confronts ua in Cali
fornia. There, aa bore, a political boas
nominated the Republican ticket, sod,
in the event of Morton'a election aa
governor of New York, Thomas C. Piatt
will be tbe real chief executive, aa Burna
will be of California should Eatee be
elected. Tbe senator's review of tbe
tariff work of the Fifty-third congress
and the present attitude of tho party on
the question ii enccinctly and admirably
stated, aa follows:
The Democratic party in 1893 took
charge of the government nndor unfav
orable and adverse clrcumßtancsa with
a slender majority in the eenate and an
unwieldy majority in the honse; it ia
not to be wondered that tha measure
now submitted to the judgment of the
country does not in sll respects meet the
public expectationa. It is, however, a
vast improvement over the McKinley
law and will clearly demonstrate ita su
periority as time rolls on aud the buai
neae interest of the country shall adjust
itself to the new conditione. It recog
nizes in part, at leaet, the Democratic
doctrine of free raw matoriale, aud in re
sponse to an overwhelming public senti
ment baa appropriately provided for
free wool, free lumber and free salt. It
haa lareely increased the free list in
other respects. It haa reduced the duty
on coal and iron nearly 50 per cent. The
ffH"""- 1 -—- - Sl' 4 ■: C —• 1 . Via
Kinley rates is nearly 33' 3 percent. It
may be safely asserted that the new law
will not cripple or embarrass a single
industry in the land or throw out of
employment a single workman, or un
duly etimulate over production on the
one hand or exorbitant importations on
the other. The elimination of sugar
bounties saves to the American people
nearly $15,000,000. If it be said that
the new law in a tingle reapect ia undnly
favorable to one particular trust, my
answer ia that tbe old favored a dozen
truita. Every man, despite the Re
publican atatement to the contrary,
should understand tbat another general
or extensive tariff revision is not con
templated by the Democrata, now or in
the future. Thia determination does
not preclude the deairability of redeem

whatever pledges we bave made in our
platform or otherwise for raw materials

The Examiner of the 13th inst.
charges that Bobs Barns, the political
bunco gteerer who is managing Mr.
Eatee's campaign, bas stuffed tbe great
register of Alameda connty to tbe ex
tent of aeveral thousand fraudulent
names. The truth of the charge is
abundantly proven by a list of over one
thousand persons who do not live at
the addresses given in the great regieter.
The matter baa been banded over to
the grand jury and it ia not all improb
able tbat Burna may be in jail or on
hia way to Canada before the day of
election. His present political partner,
Buckley, can give bim some valuable
pointers for the trip.
Buckley ia no doubt assisting in the
fraud, ac he haa an old score to eettle
with Budd and he has the reputation
of being a very good hater.

sometimes dubbed "the Mophisto from

any party with which that wily and

of Burns is too big a handicap for him.

that Cleveland's success waa no eubject
for wonder; ai.a that tbe McKinley bill
waa "tbe greatest blunder committed by
any political party Bince the crime of

well hope for any large amountof "talk"
even from the organs of his own party.

In the 6ixtu congressional dietrict
there ia a fight progressing that wonld
attract the attention ol the etate il tbe
Democrats had a presa equal to ita duty.
Mr. Patton ia running lor the bonss
tbere againat a railroad Republican, and
a Popnhat wbo ought to be in hotter
business than helping Collis Hunting
ton by hia candidacy. Patton'a nomi
nation waa knock-down blow to tbe
Southern Pacific. It foucht bim bard,
Mr. Herrin giving the aid ol his leader
ship to the forces. Tt was Mr. Patton
who wrote the railroad plank in
the Democratic state platform. I met
him when he waa seeking the nomi
nation, and was impressed by the
quickness nnd Btrength of hie mind,
and his easy, good-humored pluck. Ue
accepted battle, and pushed it, on the
railroad issue, and ia making hia cam
paign on the came line, boldly, like a
man. Tbs pamphieta he ia issuing to
the people are admirable in their di
rectness. He knows how to write, and
how to talk from the platform. The
chamber of commerce of Los Angeles is
behind Mr. Patton, regardlesß of party.
That body, of which be is a member,
sent bim to Washington as ita represen
tative to protest against the Southern
Pacifio scheme to destroy Sau Pedro
harbor iv favor of ita own now
ctioice ol Santa Monica. There, be
fore the committee of cciigreaa, he en
countered Mr. Huntington and beardec
the unwearied old money-maker and

were sent out to Messrs. Stow and
Herrin not to let thia coot and bright
minded man come back to the capital
bo a congressman. In defiance of those
ordera Mr. Patton got the nomination,
and it ia yet to he aeen if Mr. Hunt
iuitton will be more powerful at the
polls than he was in the convention.
If Mr. Patton, making thia open fight
against the common enemy of the peo
ple of the state, can be beaten, then

while party linos remain as they are

Hon. W. H. Alford.
No better campaign epeech was svsr
heard in Rivereide thsn that delivered
laat evening by Hon. W. H. Alford,
Democratic nominee for congress from
thia diatrict. Mr. Alford, like Mr. Budd,
bas a way of taking his bearers by the
hand, looking them in the eve and talk
ing to them with a sincerity tbat is im
possible to doubt.
Mr. Alford is a young man of fine
presence. Hia effort laat evening
showed that he is a born orator, also.
Hiß speech wag largely devoted to a
clear-cut, logical argument in aupport
of the Democratio position on national
and etate issues. A more convincing
presentation of facta waa never made,
and at times, too, tbe speaker rose to
flights of eloquence wbich fairly cap
tivated the audience.
The Enterprise would litre to see the
people of the Seventh district send thiu
bright, vigorous, brainy young man to
congress for a term —not merely because
he ia a Democrat, but because no one
who comes in contact with
bim can doubt that be baa the
ability and energy to serve the
district; because, too, he will bring en
tbuaießin into that service. It is true,
enthusiasm is somewhat in disfavor in
these daya. The average candidate is
properly supposed to be too icily pro
found to possess any such quality, and
the political hack, such aa many men
wbo have served in congress become —
haa long since loat enthusiasm, if in
deed he ever bad it. Aud yet a little
enthusiasm, such aa goes with young
blood, would be a very deaitable chance
for this district in its representation in
congreau. Mr. Alford, however, is not a
tyro in legislative a:! Air*. He hau
a brilliant record in the assembly
of thia Btate, where he rendered a vary
great eervice to tbe people of thia and
other counties by introducing a con
stitutional amendment exempting from
taxation non-bearing vines, fruit and
nut treea. That amendment will be
voted upon next month.
It is to be greatly boned that Mr. Al
ford will make aa thorough a canvass ns
possible up to the day of election. He
will win votes wherever he goes. He
has gained some in Riverside by hia
brief visit and speech of last evening.—

Budd Approves the Referendum.
James H. Budd, as a campaign
speaker, ia a marked success. When he
waa before tbe Btate convention, a dele
gate wbo had known him long and well
described him as "a vote-maker." He
hae made no mistakes in tbia campaign ;
has never been nonplused or eet back
by an interruption. On the contrary
be never fails to score a good point. An
incident occurred at a meeting held at
Lemoore on the 6th of October. There
was an immense gathering of people of
all shades of political faith. The farm
era had gathered from tbe surrounding
country. Many Popuiie ta were present
and listened to hia address with pro
found attention. Towards its clobo Al
fred Denton Cridge, a well known Popu
list, arose and, addressing the speaker,
"When Mr. Estee was here he de
clared the referendum was idiotic, and
it wonlo be impracticable to parmit the
people to pass on 3000 lawe. If elected

Mr. Budd. withont hesitation replied:
"As I understand tho principle of the
referendum, it is not taut every lhw

but only euch lawa as a large percent
age of the people legally petition to have
submitted to them. This ia good Dem
ocratic doctrine; and we havo the came
principle now in force in referring back
constitutional amendments to the peo
ple and in tbe local issue of bonds. 1
ace no objection to applying this prin
ciple to important legislation. In fact,
lam convinced that it will be a death
blow to monopoly and bosaism."
Mr. Budd'a rosnouso was received by
the Populists with eetisUction and thoy
together with the entire audionce re
sponded with ehoute of applause and
other emphatic demonstrations of ap
proval. Many of the Populiata then
and tbere pledged themselves to vote
for Budd in November.

George S. Patton, the Democratic
