DISCUSSES PRESIDENT CLEVELAND
AND lllfl ENGLISH FltlKNDB.
Tlio lltllo unpleasantness between
President Cleveland and Ills English
single gold standard free trado friends
mid ndinlrerslMHcntiFcd a good deal of
excitement mid talk about war.
Cleveland will bo noted In history aw
the President who did less for his own
country and more for foreign nations
than any or all other Presidents, ills
whole administration lias been In the
Interest of foreigners, and England
has been his special ict and favorite,
fondd moro and more to the already
enormous wealth of English Ixind
holders and capitalists, he has discred
ited nnd to tho full extent of his
power reduced tho price- of sliver, the
greatest money metal of his own coun
try and of which America produces
more than all other countries, while
England and her colonies produce
nonoor very little. He forced pay
ments In gold when under a fair con
struct Ion of law they should have been
made either In gold or silver, or part
In both, ns best suited the Interests of
the United States. He called an ex
tra session of Congress, and with party
lash, oillclal put ronngu and the most
arbitrary methods ever resorted to by
any absolute dictator, forced the re
peal of the law which authorized the
purchase and coinage of 1,500,000
ounces of silver per mouth, and stop
ped the coinage ofsllverenllrely. He
forced his free trade notions on the
country. This practically closed
American manufactories, destroyed
the price of American farm products,
deprived mllllons.of our )coploof em
ployment and the comforts of life, and
sent hundreds of millions of dollars of
tmcrlcnu gold abroad to pay for the
luoducisof pauper lalxir and enrich
foreign merchants. The result now Is
before the people. It Is a condition,
mil a theory. Wool Is down to live
cenlsii iHiiiud, hops to two and one
half to live cents a pound, and mil
lions of our own people are In Idleness
and want, while two hundred million
dollars In gold annually Is sent to Eu
rope to pay Interest on Imnds, tho pur
chasing power of every dollarof which
Interest has been doubled by this dis
honest single gold standard, and al
most as large a sum of gold Is sent to
foreign countries annually to pay for
manufactured articles and products
of labor which our own people would
gladly supply If they could Imi em
ployed. Not only In these great In
terests, but In minor allalrs, President
Cleveland has been steadily and stul-
bornly tho friend and ally of foreigners--partlcurlarly
tho stumbling block In tho way of the
progress and happiness of thocommon
people of his own country who llvo by
manual lalKir. When Hawaii asked
ti Im annexed to the United States ho
opposed their demand and stood In
with England and a defunct monarchy
which was a disgrace to civilization
nnd decency. When Congress was
ready to go ahead with tho Njcaraugn
canal ho upimlnted a commission com
posed of English sympathisers to
throw cold water on tho enterprise
find defeat or delay It.
In tho shrinking of values, the sale
of bonds, tho exportation of gold and
Interest bearing securities, and the
Importation of foreign merchandise
and products, (hover Cleveland has
probably cost tho people of America
not loss than twenty billion dollars,
II vo or six times as much monoy as
groat war of tho relioUlon cost
were palda commission of about $10,
000.000 for taking bonds which they
wculd'ha7o ghdl7 taken without any
commission. No other president
over received the censure of to many
of his countrymcti Irrespective of
party. His record, up to tho point
where he rails at his English cronies
about Venezuela, a slice of which
they have been trying to take for
morn thnii llftv vears. Is odious alike
to ii lanro majority ofthoso who
voted for him as well as those who
voted against him. Knowing this,
and smarting under the treachery
of his English and Wall Street syndi
cate who promised to leave $100,000,
000 In gold In the Treasury and arc
now trying to draw It all out and
load up with more bonds, he seeks to
kill two birds with one stone to
minlsh his ungrateful allies, for
whose bcncllt ho has almost ruined
the business and prosperity of mil
lions of ieoplc, and to cause people to
forget his frightful record by shout
ing for war, a cry that never falls
to overshadow all other theories nnd
conditions. War Is the most popular
exercise m the world. War has lcen
the leading occupation of tho human
race, both savage and civilized, In all
ages. Tho history of tho world, not
less In modem and highly enlight
ened than In ancient and moro sav
age times, Is mainly an account of
wars, following each other In rapid
succession. About thirty years Is re
quired for a large nation to rest and
recuperate and get ready for another
struggle, and then from three to five
years to become exhausted and ready
for another rest. Tliey all do it. Land
and sea are cemeteries where rests
What Has Been Accomplished
IJY USE OF MODERN METHODS.
Heavy Business Worked Up in
Less Than a Yhak.
Salem has at last secured one of
thoso marvels of modern enterprise,
in the form of n dry goods store that
Is conducted upon methods that make
It a great commercial success from
the turn-loose. Last May the linn of
S. M. & E. II. Stock opened up In tho
Gray block in tills city what at the
time seemed like a very modest con
cern, out it was not Jong until tue
peoplo of our city awoke to the real
ization Hint It was developing Into a
first-class1, high grade dry goods store.
Although not n year has passed since
tills event In our business history, we
have today an acquisition in the store
of S. M. & E. H. Stock, thatlsacredlt
to Salem, and certainly reflects the
very best of business management on
the part of Its proprietors.
Both S. M. & E. II. Stock are
trained merchants from their youth.
They are the descendants of a family
of business people, and therein have
no small prestige. This experience,
In addition to their own personal con
tact and advantages has fitted thc.se
young men for the business In which
they are engaged, to be able to cope
tho wrecks of armies and navies and wm' tllover' cs(' 1CI1 ' their Hue.
bones of countless millions of men
who perished In battle. A prize light
or any kind of a light or violent phys
ical contest foot ball game or horse
race will attract more attention
than any problem in .science or math
ematics. A war with England Is not
likely to be declared Immediately but
It will probably come In time. Noth
ing short of war, apparently, will
loosen the grip on England around
the throat of tho peoplo of the United
States. Our financial a (fairs arc now
controlled and regulated by England.
She fixes tho measures of value,
lengthens out the yard-stick so it
takes all Americans can earn to pay
her, and then hauls In her Interest In
gold. Presidents and Congressmen
carry out hor ordors. Thoy ask
whether sho will permit tho United
States to manufacture her own goods
and coin lioth silver and gold or
wether she will do all the manufac
turing and take hor interest in gold,
Just to "keep up the parity and pro
vide for the worklnginau a sound currency."
PHODUCT OF FOUIt YEARS.

me jsjopio oi mis nation thirty years

have cost tho United States, mi far
as treasure Is concerned. Under
President Cleveland's free trado and
single gold standard polluy values
have continually shrivelled In this
country, manufacturing has almost

Four years ago there was started In
Salem a little business which lias
grown Into such proportions that It
has come to lw not only tho wonder,
but the pride, of tho entire city. Wo
refer to tho experience of tho New
York Backet Store, which was estab
lished by E. T. Barnes In tho Cottlo
Block at that time. Tho beirtnnliiiis
or t ins now mammoth business house
wero modest Indeed. But several prin
ciples and rules of trado wero adhered
to which have had the effect of mak
ing this one of tho most prosperous
concerns of our city. First, all goods
wero bought for cash and sold for
cash. This brought tho store and Its
patrons tho very liest prices that could
Iw obtained. No poor goods wero ever
allowed In tho establishment. If a
wholesaler tried to palm oil anvthlni?
of a shoddy charactor, It was Immedi
ately repudiated, as tho dealer who
miys for cash Is never obllircd to ne
cepi goous mat are not up to his
standard. In addition to thlsnsys-
leui oi smaii pronts has boon adopted,
that Is always satisfactory to buyers,

Tho business Is managed within tho
family, which Is composed of Capt.
and Mrs. .1. Q. Barnes, Mr. and Mrs.
E. T. Barnes, and Miss May Barnes,
all well qualllled business people. It
has been a success from tho start, and
grown so rapidly nnd constantly that
tho scope of tho business was many
times doubled, when In tho past year
It was found necessary to have larger
quarters, Slnco removing Into tho

I Since coming to Salem they have dem
onstrated this over and over.
It will be of Interest to note a few
of the business methods which hnvo
led to the unparalled success of this
young concern. First of ail the pro
prietors recognize the fact that In all
commercial transactions cash Is king.
They buy their goods in tho biggest
markets of the land, and get the bcn
cllt of prices that only cold coin will
secure. On the'other hand, they only
sell for cash, and thus give their
patrons tho same benellt which they
enjoy on that score. They say, money
talks, and why pay high prices for
goods, when you can both buy and sell
cheaper by employing tho only correct
principle of business? Their numer
ous patrons, gained in .such an Incred
ibly short period, recognize the potency
of this fact, and appreciate tho situa
tion. Ono of tho first moves to attract at
tention to this firm In Salem was the
fact that they took the llrnt premium
for tho lincst display in their Hue
against all competition, at tho State
Fair, and that after they had been In
the city only a few mouths. This
successful firm Is already compelled to
employ llvo regular sales peoplo, and
In busy seasons extra help Is required
to accommodate tho trade. Before'
tho spring season arrives they expect,
to l)o settled In much larger quarters, I
whoro thoy will bo better ablo to cater
to tho needs of tho growing business. I
which is the constant aim of tho
S. M. & E. II. Stock wish tholr
numorous friends and patrons tho
compliments of the season, and assure
them that they will lie over ready to
sorvo their lest Interests. All aro
cordially Invited to look over their
stock and ldam correct prices whether
In quest of goods or not.
