SUNDAY- JULY 15.188
A memorial has been sent from
San Francisco to the Portland fire
insurance agents, of the following
tenor: "Gentlemen: The com
bined experience of th& Fire In
surance companies doing business
in Portland, has, as you are aware,
been far from encouraging for
several, years last past. If from
the entire premium- receipts in
Portland during 1882, there be de
ducted losses, commissions, rebates-brokerage,
bad debts,- and
thcTheavy traveling and olher' ex
penses, it will be found that not
only has no surplus been carried
forward for the payment of future
losses on some 130,000,000 of out
standing risks, but that a de
ficiency exists, which, with some
of the companies who have been
longest among you, runs up to
thousands ol dollars."
It appears from the foregoing,
says the Commercial Reporter,
that $30,000,000 of fire risks are
being carried by these insurance
agencies in Oregon, at a "deficien
cy represented in the above sec
ond paragraph of the memorial.
Now if it should again be the fate
of this city to have another fire
like that of August, 3879, and two
or three others since, what might
be the result with the companies
"who have been largest" as is
above referred to?
The San Francisco Commercial
News says that the manufacture
r j. , t i i
ui canneu lomaioes nas reacneu a
point where the home demand is
less than the product. The result
is that tomatoes are selling with
out any profit to the manufacturer.
While the quantity put up on this
coast seems large, it is but com
paratively a small amount of the
total pack for the United States.
In seasons when there is a partial
failure of the tomato crop east or
west, our local manufacturers
would be helped by an eastern
demand. The item of freight is
such a large one, however, that it
is seldom, even when the eastern
market is comparatively bare, that
our manufacturers can ship the
article at anything but a loss. The
outlook for the coming season
indicates that tomatoes will be
offered for sale at lower figures
than prevailed last year. These
remarks" refer to the ordinary
quart cans, or 2 lbs. Tomatoes
in gallon cans are in good demand,
and it will be nearly three months
before the new crop will be
canned, prices. will undoubtedly
.be .maintained and probably be in
demand before they .can be re
placed by the new.
A Harrisburg dispatch says
that the Pennsylvania Republi
cans, are confident of electing
their ticket. Indeed, there is no
question of success among them.
The republicans have a clear ma
jority of votes jg.the state, and all
that is needed" to insnro success is
real harmonious action, as was
foreshadowed by Wednesday's
convention. Probably success is
greatly increased by the composi
tion of the ticket. The fact that
Cameronism was not an issue in
the convention, and that the body
worked 'out its own conclusions
without dictation from the outside,
was often spoken of with pleas
ure. "I have been fighting Cam
eronism for thirty years," said one
leading delegate, who is a stal
"wart, but still claims to have been
anti-Cameron from the beginning.
"but I never saw it smashod till
. English capitalists have gone
into the cattle business on th
plains in such numbers and with
so much capital that it is believed
thev will soon control the cattle
trade of the. interior of the conti
nent. The high price of beef at
" Denver has elicited many pro
tests, ana one ol the newspapers
of that city states that although
Colorado claims to be a cattle
state, the business is virtually in
the hands of less than a dozen par
ties, who have dictated prices for
The Norwegian Storthung has

adult in Norway shall receive

New York is suffering from a
grain- pool, which adds two to two
Md auhalf cents per bushel to the
cost of shipping from that port.
The Old TlcKet. " j
A Saratoga special to the N.
Y. Times, says that the New
York Democratic leaders are
earnestly putting forward efforts
to have the next national conven
tion of their party held in Sara
toga; and it is lather significant
that the simultaneous sentiment in
favor of the renomination of the
old ticket "Tilden and Hendricks"
is making rapid headway. What
was scouted as ridiculous and ab
surd three or four months ago is
now spoken of as both rational
and expedient. Leading Demo
crats in New York, Albany, Syra
cuse, Buffalo and other points of
the state, are fast coming to the
conclusion that renomination of
the old ticket is the easiest, if not
the only practicable way of escap
ing many difficulties that the
national democracy will have to
encounter in their next convention.
The selection of a candidate on
whom all factions could cordially
unite would be almost impossible
in view of numberless rival aspir
ants, while the adoption of a plat
form on which they could all
agree would be equally difficult;
but when the "old ticket" is in the
field, rival candidates could at least
console themselves with the re
flection that they all had been
treated with impartiality, and as
for the platform none should be
needed. The great fraud of 1876
would absorb all other issues, and
the rectifying of that wrong
would furnish incitement to
action. This, at least, is the way
the advocates of the "old ticket
"If the various countries main
tain their present rate of increase,"
says Mr. Gossolin, Secretary of
Embassy at Berlin, "fifty years
hence hence the United States
will have a population of 100,000,
000, Russia approximately 163,-
000,000, Germany 83,000,000,
the United Kingdom 63,
000,000, Austria-Hungary and
Italy both 44,000,000, France
only 40,000,000; Germany has
already in round numbers
7,500,000. more inhabitants than
France, but in this reckoning
Algeria is not taken into account."
For war purposes, however, it is
observed that the balance is not
so heavily against France, for
wheras iu Germany there are only
965 males to 1,000 females, in
France there are 791. Germany
has, therefore, 3,500,000 more than
says it is advisable to leave a por
tion of the national debt unpaid.
"At one time we heard . a great
deal about not handing down ' a
debt to 'posterity, but in my opin
ion a national debt should bo
maintained, say about $100,000,-
000. I say this because it is a
fact that government securities
fill a place that can be filled by no
other securities, and are perfectly
