Review of the. Situation,
Senator Mitchell to Take Personal
Chargtfof His Campaign,
Senator Mitchell's malingers have
glyen It up. They have appealed to
him to come home from Washington
at once and take charge of his re
election campaign. Indications point
to a complete deadlock in the legisla
ture. Mitchell has a certain number
or votes pledged to his return. These
pledges will stand. But they are not
cnougli to elect. Thq gold members
will make a bitter tight. Sincere bl
tnetallists'cannotvotc for Mitchell On
an equivocal platform.
If Senator Mitchell would offer the
golditcs the most profound assurances
of the perfect sincerity of his conver
sion to the gold standard, they would
not believe him. They have men or
their own for material to make a Sen
ator of that kind. Indeed but few ol
the goldite leaders but are secret as
pirants to the senatorshlp. The fight
in the legislature is narrowed down
to a square fight between the advo
cates of the single-gold standard and
bimetallism or government money in
stead of bond-holders and national
bank money. The single-gold stand
ard means contraction and govern
ment bonds. Already the corporations
print In their waybills that freight
must be paid in gold. It will be
noticed that all the European money
centers rejoice at the triumph of the
gold standard. The foreign vote of
the large cities went to McKlnley.
The Southern Pacific, and the other
corporations, that collect revenues for
foreign bondholders were all for the
gold standard and want a gold stand
ard senator from Oregon. The S. P.
is for Mitchell for senator on two
propesItloLs: that he recant his free
silver views and vote for the funding
bill that will put hundreds of millions
into the pockets of these corporations
and release all government control
over them. The latter proposition 1s
more dangerous to the people than
the former. They might in time elect
-uy reacerui political
methods unlock the grip of the Pacific
railway octopus on the people and on
our institutions. The issue In the
legislature is gold and corporate cor
ruption against the people. How
many of the representatives of the
people will stand up for bimetallism
and against tho Wall-street gold-bond
syndicate they so strenuously de
nounced when they went before the
people last spring? IIow many will
kneel in tho dust and worship the
Koldeni calf and corporations on Jan
uary 11 and abandon their principles?
The Journal believes it was Sena
tor Mitchell's intention to secure his
election to tho Sonato without com
promising his silver views. The
Journal believes if he could now se
cure votes enough to elect him at the
hands of the blmetallists in tho legis
lature ho would go backand stand up
for tho people's Interests of the gold
conspiracy. On a plain issue, stripped
of politics, tariff and other considera
tions, tho people of tho west will
never vote for tho gold standard,
bond policy aj originated by Gruver
The people of tho west want gold,
silver and paper as national currency
on equal terms without depending on
tho gold lords. The govrcnuient o
tho people must bo on top or the
Eothschlld-Morgan syndicate will
continue to dictate terms. There is
the real question at issue. As far as'
tho people or Oregon aro concerned,
this is tho only Issue in tho election
of a senator. Shall we maintain a
people's government with sovereign
power through congress over the
llnancial system and corporations ori
shall the people abdicate In these

owed by these railroads to tho govern
ment aro now In round number $120,
000,000, and the proposed bill Is a
thinly disguised scheme to relievo the
railroads or the obligation to pay.
Ought not Oregon representatives
and senators help to pievenl the pass
age of a measure so unfair to the gov
ernment and so wnfitvorablo to the
people of the Pacific couM? The bill
does not propose to give the govern
ment even tho Interest that must be
paid on the debt. The government
is now paying 31 per cent Interest un
Its loans. By the terms of this bill
the railroad companies are not to pay
In any year a sum equal to 3 per cent
upon the debt. The payments were
from 2.95 per cent on the debt to 1.27
percent, but by calling a part of It
"repayment of principal" and part of
It "Interest," the debt is supposed to
be "extinguished" in something less
than 100 years. The government will
each year have to make up a defi
ciency In Interest unless current rates
fall greatly, and at the end of the
time will still have to pay the princl.
pal of the debt that the railroad com
panies have evtfded.
The plea that the government must
take this settlement or nothing is
obviously false. Two years ago the
promoters of the present bill offered
the government 3 per cent interest
and repayments to settle the indebt
einess In 50 years au offer which the
53rd congress rejected as unjust to the
government. The net earnings of the
Central Pacific for the past live years
have, by Its own reports, ayeraged
above $5,000,000 a year. The net
earnings of the Union Pacific last
year, by its own books, were $4,735,000.
The Southern Pacific Company as the
lessee of the Central Pacific, Is depre
ciating the value of tho Central line
as far as possible by diverting tratllc
to the Southern Pacific line, yet, eyen
at this the net earnings of the road
are now between $4,000,000 and $4,500,
000. Tho net earnings of the two
roads under the present unfavorable
conditions arc about $9,000,000 a year,
which, after deductions for non-aided
portions of the line, is sufficient to
pay the present government rate of 3
per cent interest on the first mortgage
debt, and the full government debt,
and still leave something for a sinking

at Yaoolna liy villi the S
'una representatives in congress to on-
pose the present refunding scheme
and any other plan of settlement that
does not require the payment of the
full amount owed tho government bv
the Pacific railroads.If congress refuses
to grant this unjustextension to thnsn
fraudulent debtors, the president will
protect the interests of the gov
ernment under tho Thurman Act
and the Pacific Railway Commission
Act of 1887 by foreclosing the mort
gage or by taking possession of the
property. Such a course will result
in tho double benefit of enabling the
government to recover the m6nev it
"as lost and of breaking a monopoly
that has oppressed the people of
the Pacific coast mountain states.
Before Scntator Mitchell is elected
the people should know where lie
stands on this question. As he may
not bo In Washington when this
funding bill will go to tho senate, If
it shall pass the house, his views
should be known as soon as possible.
The deliberate fraud practiced by
the Republican politicians of Oregon
last spring is bearing fruit in the dis
integration of the party. That fraud
was consummated by a secret combi
nation to overthrow and defeat the
two silver congressmen and senator
Mitchell in the Intcscst of the gold
obllgarchy that has effected a pro
tectorate over national Republican
ism. Herman and Ellis were to be
retired or defeated, and a gold-standard
legislature to be chosen. This
was carried so far by the gold-conspirators
a to make an open fight on
three promlnant Mitchell blmetallsts
in Marlon county, Barkley, Chapman,
and Craig. But the plan failed on
these men. By tho loyalty of the
silver Republicans Ellis was saved
and a Republican legislature chosen.
Thomas II. Topgue, if he hold his
seat In congress, will be as completely
a tool of the gold power as Cleveland
or Carlisle, representing not much
more than two-fifths of the people of

standing the fact that liis district

timent of the st-ite is to be suppressed

conspirators to overthrow the popular
will by decelying a few hundred men
In Oregon to vote the McKlnley ticket
on the delusive theory that he stood
on a silver platform.
What is the result of all this fraud?
Tho popular will in Oregon is to be
suppressed and the representative
principle trodden under foot to grat
ify the hunu'or for spoils of a twenty
years accumulation of office holders
and office seekers. The man who
will advocate gold or silver, Mitchell
or Dolph, anything to get the coon, is
the worpt foe of popular government.
Oregon is to bo swung into tho Wall
street column. The gold aristocracy
ana corporation plutocracy aro to
fatten off the lrapoyerlshed producer,
nigh interest, higher taxes, corrup
tion of tho representatives of tho peo
ple is to prevail. Tho coniidenco of
the masses in honest elections is
undermined and destroyed if this
outrageous stylo of politics succeeds.
