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

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

The mill men rf Oregon should

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

of democrats rather than to enforce

to their own interests to let well
enough alone, and wore led to believe
that by supporting the policy of free
trade they would better their worldly
condition. 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

are omitted as their publication would work
an injury to the assoeiotion until the plan
is understood by all. Alter considerable

unanimously and the association then took

teen sections were adonted alter some mod.

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
