ItKFKHHING TO KOGEKS.
ItV interesting to witne-t* some of the anti-
Rogera populist* eat crow and try to look aa
though they liked it. — Kenton Kepjrter.
_ It was charged on the tl >or of the conven
tion by both democrats aud populists that
Senator Turner bought delegation* enough on
the convention floor to nominate his num.
What kind of reform is that? -Seattle lie
publican.
The Rogers men sai i it didn't take much
money to buy a populist. Senator Turner has
a good bank accnunt. and he owes a political
debt to Rogers. Rogers was nominated :uid
the populists will take their medicine. To
ledo Tidings.
The Bellingham Bay pops are falling over
each other in their haste to renounce alleg
iance to Grov. Rogers. Tin governor seems to
be a good enough democrat for the democrats,
but there is hardly a ijuorum of them. —
Whatcom Reveille.
No such political farce has ever been known
in this state as the fusion state convention.
It was a cold-blooded deal in which the wishes
of the people had no place. It was a payment
of political debts, with the result of a yellow
dog ticket. Republicans are delighted with
the result. —Lincoln Cunity Timea.
J. B. Ge.hr the state clerk at the peniten
tiary at Walla Walla, has resigned his place
as a result of the renominution of Rogers.
Mr. Gehr has announced his intention uf bolt
ing the ticket and making an open fiV'ht
against the governor. For some time Mr,
Gehr has been an active leader of the anti-
Rogers element.
The enemies of Governor Roger*, who so
bitterly fought his renomiiiation in the fusion
convention at Seattle this week, will not have
long to wait for their turn to laogh. They
can get their merry ha-ha apparatus in shape
for active service on the (ith of November, for
on that date the governor will be quietly and
decently laid away in his poli'ical grave—and
the grave wil! be both wide and deep.—Port
Angeles Tribune-Times.
The tight against Rogers for several days
seemed to be positively vicious, but snmehow
the kickers were mostly swung into line at the
end and the Puyallupman remains in the sad
dle. Just how the thing was done is a mys
tery, but some of the delegates say it wai Sen
ator Turner who did the business with his
Back, ami that the fellows who switched to
Rogers were bought like sheep. It was a pity
to waste much cash on the proposition, for
Rogers is already a beaten man. —Tacoma
News-Herald.
Hon. J. P. DeMattos. of Republic late of
Whatcom, in a long article on the political
situation, says to a P.-I. correspondent as a
justification of his discontent and determina
tion to vote the republican state ticket: "Fin
ally at the state convention, men who were
selected delegates because af their hostility to
the governor, with scant pocketbooks in the
morning and money to spend the same even
ing, and were shouting themselves hoarse for
Roerera, while gentlemen sustaining the ap
parent relation ot pardon and parole brokers
to his excellency were leaving notes at hotels
for certain delegates to come up to a certain
room where 'that matter would be fixed." Is
this not enough?''
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy a
Great Favorite.
The soothing and healing properties
of thie remedy, its pleasant taste and
prompt and permanent cures haw made
it a great favorite with people every
where. It is especially prized by moth
ers of small children for colds, croup
and whooping cough, as it always af
fords quick relief, and as it contains uo
opium or other harmful drug, it may be
given as confidently to a baby as to an
adult. For sale by all druggists.

J' "AoxIINGTON, SEPT EM HER 14 1900
When th.> automobile first began tc
be used, the newspapers were tilled
with lengthy and learned disquisitions
"ii the length of the name and the in
convenience that would certainly arise
in using so many syllabled a word. Va
rious names were suggested, from
"inobe" to "electro dynamic whoom
'em doodle do," but none of them wen.
appropriate, and they failed to stick.
It seemed that the automobile wai
doomed to continue to be a plain auto
mobile, when some one hit on the sylla
Die "torn" as a solution of the problem.
The name was taken up quickly, and
now it Is quite proper to call it "tom
my." The coachman is ordered tc
bring the tommy out, and the young
man instead of asking his girl to go
buggy riding now invites her to take a
"torn" ride. Thus are the great prob
lems of the ages solved.
The town of Brunswick, Me., com
prising about 7,u00 Inhabitants, places
Itself on record as the first municipal
ity in the United States to undertake
forest planting on a large scale, or
what is practically the old world insti
tution of a town forest Such forests
are quite common in Europe and often
furnish a large part of the municipal
revenue. The town of Brunswick owns
a tract of about 1,000 acres, and at a
recent meeting of the council a sutii
cient amount of money was voted to
Improve this land by planting it with
white pine The division of forestry of
the department of agriculture at Wash
ington will assist in the work thus laid
out. What is being done in Brunswick
should be done in thousands of towns
in the United States. A forest park in
every suburban town would be a
health giver and a delight to all.
The annual report of the American
Presbyterian Mission Press at Shang
hai, issued and circulated among the
Chinese last year 07,»;2o,000 pages of
religious literature. Among the nota
ble volumes published were 1,000 cop
ies of 'Stems' Dictionary," revised and
enlarged by Dr. D. McGilvary; a new
edition of "Mateer's Mandarin Les
sons" and a 5,0U0 edition of "Commen
tary on the New Testament."
At any rate Chicago has a large read
ing population. According to the annu
al report of the Public library of that
city, more books are circulated in
homes than in any other city In the
world. The report does not state spe
cifically as to the character of the
books, but it is to be hoped that they
are consonant with the character of a
progressive city.
Denationalized Americans naturally
do not represent t!k> hotter traits of the
borne character. A notable case iv
point is furnished by sumo recent exhi
bitions of snobbery in London on the
part of William Waldorf Astor.
The American mule is now to change
his field of activity to China. There
are people who will deplore the fact
that inability to write a book of travels
l.s one of the mule's defects.
It is reported that General :Uethuen
has captured 8,000 sheep from the ene

may now return to his mutton.
What tbe civilized world has much
desired during the last few weeks has
been a peek into Peking.
THE WHKAT SITUATION.
The Oregonian of August 29. under the
head of "Wheat Will Not Go East," pub
lishes the letter of President Mellen of the
Northern I'acific, and comments upon tho
situation as follows:
This is not the fault of the exporters, but of
the farmers themselves. When the exporters
commenced taking ships for the crops coming
to market, there waß plenty of tonnage ob
tamable for 35 shillings, a rate about 7 cents
per bushel lower than is now rulint:. With
such a large crop in sight, and freights strong
all over the world, this seemed a reasonable
rate, and had there been any assurance that
the farmer would market his wheat when it
was needed, all of the tonnage needed would
have been picked up. The exporters, how
ever, had taken ships at 35 shillings a few
years before, and when they arrived, the far
mers held fast to their wheat, and equeezed
ihe financial life out of some of the dealers,
and seriously strained the bank accounts of
others, by demanding prices from three to
ten cents a bushel above the export value of
the cereal. With a painful recollection of
this experience before them, the exporters re
fused to place themselves in a position where
they conld be seriously hurt by being forced
to meet tonnage demanded by the farmers.
This condition of affairs can be remedied
only by the farm«r changing his system of
gambling with his wheat. If he believes it
will be higher a few months hence, he should
tjivejthe exporter a chance to help him out
with cheap charters picked up early in the
year, by selling as soon as harvest is over, and
buying futures in New York or Chicago. This
mvm insurance, taxes and storage charges,
and the element of chance is smaller than it i»
under the present method of holding the ac
tual wheat for the purpose of squeezing the
exporter, and making him so timid that he is
afraid to charter ships. Freight rates are
governed by world-wide conditions, nit by
local business, and accordingly Mr. Mellen is
correct in alluding to an alleged combination
between shipowners and shippers "unworthy
of serious consideration."
Last season the nitrate dealers on the west
coast of South Africa overbid Portland ex
porters, and took shio? away from the Colum
bia river in ballast. They are bidding againßt
the Portland exporters today in the Orient, in
Europe and in Australia. The ore shippers
of New Caledonia and the rice merchants of
the far east are doing the same, and the ship
owner has nothing in the world to (fain by
forming a combinat on with any of these
trades, and, like any hard-headed business
men, sends his ships where he has the best
offers. He is demanding 45 shillings for grain
today simply became he can receive an equiv
alent rate elsewhere.
