President Cleveland's message to the 63rd congress is principally oon- apicious tor its voluminous proper- Signs of orguuio dissolution and in evitable decay of the people's party in this county are everywhere viisable and indisputable. Humor of internal strife and dissatisfaction have been heard for several months, and the truth of these reports it being verified al most daily. The strongs-, evidence that the peoples' party is going to pieces here, a it ia everywhere else, is the refusal of the leaders to pull to gether and support the home organisa tion. In the articles incorporating the Herald Publishing company, of Oregon City, we notice the name of D. M.Ewing, president of the county lions, ana destitution oi I fiance and a prominent leader of tho the people would like to know, espec-l rt Mr. Ewinjr is a heavy sub- ially his position on the disposition of Jcr-ber ,he gU)ck of tjl(J Oregon cily the Hawaiian affair . The message is paper, but refused to have anything to n very commonplace document, being L0 wjlh lhe partyorgau in tllit couotv in substance simpiy a review oi ue partment reports and an expression of the president's hopes that congress will speedily pass the Wilson tariff bill which he claims is his ideal of a tariff- reform bill, and which suits him so exactly that he not only has no changes to suggest, but recommends its imme diale adoption without further 'deration. Many evidences of friction in the party are constantly bubbling to the surface and the clammy sweat of dissolution is constantly gathering upon its stricken brow. Congress met in regular session Monday with a very slim repreeenta- con-1 tion of senators present. The day was principally given np to the reading of The president recommends that the presidents message wnicn was more latitude be given the department listened to in part by few senators in the matter of issuing bonds, and is who took little or no interest in the particularly desirous that an income document, and all but a dozen of them tax ba levied, but is not at all sure left the chamber before the secretary how one will be received or what effect finished the reading.

The wait for advices as to the result of I reading of the president's message waa Minister Willis' visit to the Islands, I listened to with marked attention. and and make that gentleman personally much surprise was evidenced when the responsible for auy mistakes the ad-1 section of the message was read slut ministration has made in dealing with ing that the ways and means commit that Question. Mr. Cleveland has tee had embraced in its plan several treated this matter all through as a additional internal revenue taxes, and private transaction, systematically ig a small income tax on certain corpor nonng public opinion, and, as usual, I alums, l his was something ot a ur- ha made a serious bungle of the whole prise, since it was understood that the business, and too late discovering that internal revenue features and income he has doue so, he is now trying to tax had not been decided upon, shirk the responsibility and retire in tiie best order possible. FROM WASHINGTON. SHINGLE INDUSTRY. Ai will be seen by an article in an other column the shingle men of Washington have met and perfected an organization whose object is to re store the shingle trafic to the position it occupied before the association went j all it offers Washington, Dec 1, 1S93. The Cleveland tariff bill has been before the public four days and the most careful study fails to rind oue single redeeming feature therein. It would, if enacted a law, turn over t lie cream of the American market, the finest in the world, to European man ufaclurers and Canadian farmers, and Americans in exchange to pieces and by uniting the manufac turers so that concerted action can be taken to bring order out of chaos and make it possible for the manufacturer to operate his machinery and get a profit out of his investment. The plan adapted by the association is good one and if its provisions are properly therefor are guttering promises ot an increase in the foreign trade of the United States, promises which are not believed in even by those who made them. It is admitted that free wool would put an end to the production of wool in this country, and that free iron ore and coal will cause foreign iron :nd coal to be used exclusively in the neighborhood of every Atlantic observed win undoubtedly nave me ei-i seaport, ana that American iron ore feet of reestablishing the prosperity nd coal will be used nowhere except w enjoyed, and securing to the mill man .,t.;t, i .ki.,u h.,.;no,. ,m,i places so far ii , . . ... freight rales will allow them to com- ' in the interior that the something like a reasonable price fori liis product. The desired effect may not be immediate but it will be certain for the demoralization of prices is sim ply the result of disorganization and not, as has been supposed, the result of over-production and the failure of demand. The mill men rf Oregon should pete with foreign products. These are only specimens of the manner in which American industries have been treated by this bill. The same holds good throughout the bill. There is hardly a single industry of any consequence in the United States that is not struck at in some way. And as if that were not evil enough to be contained in a single bill, this one charges the method of imposing the mntv llrtnn manv rif fr arfij-lwa ttliifili -Jieaitly endorse the action of shingle it leaveg upon ,he dlliMe list from men in our neighbor state and lose no specific to ad valorum.a system which lime in following their example, there- nas Deen condemned by nearly every liy securing to themselves the benefits f cretary oi me treasury me country ... , , ,, . . , . has bad, as one that encourages fraud which can only be attained through an(1 DUt. - nremium nDon dtcer.t.n,, organization and concerted action.

The re port of the republican minority of the house ways and means committee, upon which work is now being pushed, promises to be a document that will make republican converts by the thous and. It will probably be ready by tbe last of next week. The democrats of the ways and mea. i.4 committee are still undecided about a sin win feature of lhe internal revenue bill, which thev will have to prepare to meet the big deficiency created by their tariff hill. They wish to include the iiicome Ui.hntao many vigortiua protest have liven tiled agaiust it by leading democrat that it is not certain they will. Secretary Herbert, not having a son to take care of, has introduced a new variety of nepotism by appointing his ou-in law chief clerk of the uavv department. It is certain that Mr. O. D. Johnson, of Louianna, who was the only demo cratic member ot the civil service com mission, did not enjoy his Thaukxaiv ing dinner. Cause whyt He was per emptorily removed from office by Mr. Cleveland this week. Mr. Johnson has, ever since the denmcratio admin istration came into olflVe, acted a though he thought it was his duty to stand by the most outrageous viola tions of the civil service law, in favor of democrats rather than to enforce the law. He has been going from bad to worse in that direction, and when t,he time came to prepare tha annual report of the cominision,which is now in the hand of Mr. Cleveland,, there was an opeu rupture betweeu him and his republican colleagues, and he re fused to sign their report mid wrote one of his own. That brought matters to a crisis, and Commissioner Roose velt told Mr. Cleveland that lis would not remain on the commission if John son did, and Johnoi didn't. Prof. rrocior, oi Kentucky, has been ap pointed to till the vacancy. SHINGLE MEN ORGANIZE. Proceedings of the Meeting at Seattle.

Perhaps no human power could have changed their minds on this subject. They are a class of peo ple who must be taught by hard, pain ful experience the lesson it is desired for them to learn. They are destitute of vision and, therefore, cannot see the force of an argument, though it be ever so potent and presented with the most profouud logic and the most sil very oratory. It has been found im i possible to find a market for iron oro, puder tbe-' threatened tariff - tinkering heard and felt as soon as thev are brought to a realizing sense of the in injury to themselves that is contained in the bill. Many bidieve thst the bill bus been made public in its present by-laws .subject to ratirii ation by general meeting to be held in sixty days". There is to be an arbitration committee of five members from each association to settle ui-puti-s among them. I lie above Is the u an in brief as out inert before the meeting Some of the detail are omitted as their publication would work an injury to the assoeiotion until the plan is understood by all. Alter considerable discussion the general plan was adopted unanimously and the association then took the tuaiter up section byjeciiun. Seven teen sections were adonted alter some mod. iticatious and a committee was appointed to prepare a constitution and by-laws for tbe new association. A resolution was passed to the effect that until tbe new association established a standard of prices no cuuira. ts for the out put lor tbe coming year would be made. tue discussion on the details of i,;,, nn. cupied tbe greater part of two days, but at me conclusion me manufacturers were of the opinion that it is the oi Iv one v.r of fered that would bold good. Iti'Miiau of organization was thn fnbn up and a niouon prevailed that the agree ment, ii Mgneu, snouia not be binding upon tbe nulls represented at tbe meeting unle-s all tbe ruUl owners in the mt signed the articles. Signatures to the fol lowing agreement were toen called for: 1 hereby nledere myself to sitr,, th act- cles of agreement adopted this date by the shingle manufacturers assembled in the Chamber of Commerce building. Seattle, and to sign and return so tbe secretary at ouce a copy of the articles when printed and sent tome for my signature." This agreement was signed by twenty-one Upon motion it was decided to instruct Mr tmniway to make a personal canvass of lhe different mills ,m 1 ccnre their names to the pledge, A subscription of fS per block was then taken op to defray the pre liminary expenses. Kv.-ry mill represented cheerfully sub scribed to the fund as an evidence of good faith. The question of pri-cs for the year 1&4 Was tlieil diMCUSaed And ar.Knllltiin hnally pased declaring it the sense of the meeting tnat for the coming ymr the prices of shinties at the mills should he placed on a -,. uu, ie.sioiiiiti.4u per tnousand for btar A Stars, and 11.65 for clears : weights 180 and 200 pounds. The following mo ion was then curried without a ni-sent- mg voice: "t,ve-y atgner of these articles pledges himsi ll and the firm he represents to attend a melting in person or by projty. t be called by the president as soon as ull the manufac urers sign these articles; and further, that he or the firm or company he repre-ent will at the meeting, sell to the executive committee shingles to the value lion perblock, to be paid for by tbe com mittee when s-cb manufacturer has begun shipping and paid in enough per 1,000 to amount to 30 per block: or. ii thev cannot pay the money thev will out ud collateral or its equivalent." The dealers' association met on the same diys in Scat-le and praciirallv agreed to everything as embodied in the new plan of reorganization. Dealers and manufactur ers atik realized that nothing could be ac complished without con- erted action, and for tbe first time in the history of the shingle business, in lividdal opinions were laid aside and all worked for the general good. , SHERIFF'S BALE.
