ITS EFFECT STILL WITH US, The fifty-third congress pissed out of existence at noon last Monday, alter two years of absolute folly, attended by business e tan nation and general de pression on every hand. It almost causes one's heart to ache when coin paring the present condition of the country with that wnicn existed wuen the late but not lamented congress met two years ago. The evil doers have passed out of existence, officially peaking, but the effects of their inca pacity is still with us. While the country has been begging for relief at the hands of congress, that body has gone on aoJ on with the finger of scorn pointed at it, and the earnest en treaties of those who have created it have been trampled under their feet. Congress has, indeed, seemed unwill ing to enact a single law which would tend to relieve the distressed condition of the country, or to offer a substitute which would in any degree stimulate business. With our import revenues cut off by the Wilsou law, our factor ies and workshops closed in favor of the foreign manufacturer, the ruouey of the country centering or hiding away through fear of vicious legislation, and bonds being issued to pay the current running expenses ol the government, the people have been forced to sit like a enat before an elephant and await ibe inevitable. The inevitable is still with as, but the congress is gone, thauk Clod, it's gone. PROTECTION TBS REAL REMEDY. Thx Hist has at all times argued that the safest and surest road to pros perity ia through the protective sys tem, and that in comparison with pro tection to American industries the sil ver question is of minor importance. Again we say the real remedy for our financial ills is the repeal of the Wil son tariff law, and the substitution therefor a stiff tariff for protection. Bv this means we believe the money now hoarded in the safe depositories of the East would at once begin to spread out over the country in search of in vestment, furnishing employment to American mechanics and workmen in general, at fair wages. By starting our factories, mines, ana otner industries the laboring classes would be afforded n opportunity to earn the wherewithal to buy the necessaries of life, and there by stimulate our home market for th products of the farm, which is the key to the prosperity of the United States. The home market regulates the price of all commodities, and if our consum ers have not an opportunity to earn money with which to patronize the home market the demand is small and consequently the price low. First of all, raise the duty on imports which would enable our factories to operate, putting money in the pockets of our working people. The work cre ates a demand for imports as well as for home productions. Every ship that comes to our shores brings a cargo of merchandise, and unless our people have the money with which to buy those goods the shipowner cannot buy our Droducts. If an article which sold for $1 in good times is reduced to 50 'cents and the consumer lias not toe money, be cannot buy. The cheap ness of an article cuts no figure it tne consumer has not the cash. Hence, we must first, by a protective tariff, legislate money into tne pockets oi the ooosumer. This is the issue we believe to be paramount to all others. We are reaping the fruits of the in famous democratic tariff law, receiving blows from all sides. On account of that law alone the French government has issued its edict prohibiting the entrance to that country of American beef. The effect of this is to deprive this country of a market winch has been purchasing $20,000,000 worth of our beef per .year. A proposition was some time ago made to mis country to remove the differential duty on French sugar, and the fact was known then that if this conntry refuse to re move that differential duty the French government would prohibit the en trance of American bef. Truly, all we have been -spending so much time aud labor building up, is being knocked down with one blow ry a democratic tariff. Must we -endure this for two more yeart And even if we live for another two years wont will we have worth protecting? This government nearly, not quiie.coiuuiinou auiume two years ago, Sknator McBriob is a safe and con servative man and will devote his lime and energies to the cause of the peo ple, never forgetting that as time goes on conditions change, and we believe lie will he always ready to march when the hand of progress directs. When nterviewed a lew days ago the senator said : "It is evident there is need of reform in the financial system ot the country, and jt is my belief that such reform must proceed on the lines of the lust republican platform. I believe that a return to the republican policy of protection is essential to the restor ation of the national finances to a healthy condition. I am also confi dent that the republican parly, when it secures control of all the brunches of the national government, will solve Hie ccnnomio and puancial problems now before the country, in a way that will restore prosperity to all the indus tries of the nation. J do not think it necessary at this time to outline a spe cific scheme of finsnoial legislation which I would support. I do not wish to make tiny expressions that would limit my freedom of judgment and action upon such measures as may be proposed." Thkrk will be no more friction be tween Oregon's senators. Senators Mc Bride aud Mitchell are in perfect accord with each other, have always been warm personal friends, and can be depended upon to work in harmony for the best interests of the state. In stead of being arrayed against each other on great questions they will be as one, with two votes. As indicated in these columns many times, the peo ple of Oregon prefer to have a delega tion in the national, legislature which is not divided against itself. Mr. Wilson of West Virginia, father of the disastrous tariff law, has been appointed postmaster general to suc ceed Wilson S. Biseell, resigned. Slow ly the defeated "perfidy and dishonor" HsnHvrnnv arA hpinff rewarded for their efforts to put the workingmen of the United states on an equality witn the paupers of Europe. CRACKEP ALL U18 LIFE. In an obscure paper which has but few subscribers, including the (oar copies that come to this postoffice, last week appeared an article entitled "The Nat Cracked," signed by Wellington M. Perry, and it seems to be the general opinion of those who know him best that the nut who wrote the aforesaid article has been cracked all his life". The Mist has not heretofore dis cussed the qualities of Wellington, or referred to him in other than friendly terms; but since he has attacked the editor of this paper in an unprovoked personal manner it becomes our duty to retaliate. We presume the bigot with a name im agines himself mayor of New York or Neer City, and styles himself a deciple of H. W. Scott, H. W. Corbett, M. C. George, J. N. Dolph, etc. If those gentlemen only knew they were being patterned after by such a creature as Wellington M. Ferry they would snrely commit saicide. The aforesaid egotist further says Mr. Ellis openly encouraged the re-election of Mr. Dolph, which he knows to be a barefaced prevarication. The man whose name oc cupies so much space says those who differ srith us are called "soreheads." Yoa are quite mistaken, neighbor, you are the one living in a glass house. There were any number of men in the state any one of whom we would have been glad to have seen elected, first among them being Geo. W. McBride, while you, with your narrow ness of intellect, could see no one but Dolph. But seriously, Wellington, are you not something of a "sorehead?" did you not want an office last spring any office from representative down? did you not say that if yoa couldn't get the nomination for sheriff maybe you could get school super intendent and when your great ability was declined for both, did you not say very hard things about certain candidates and especially the one for sheriff? did you not try to get the nomination for school super intendent in 1892 and when the convention concluded it could and did make s better selection you croaked long and loud, saying very nncomplimentary things about your opponents, Mr. Cleeton and Mr. Watts? These are the things, according to our un derstanding, that it takes to make a "sore head" and a first-class "sorehead" too. . We do not deny the light of any man to differ with ns upon say. question. Indeed we are always elad to see people have fixed opinions of their own, all classes from the most worthy down to Wellington M. Perry, and, though the name be long we trust his strong right arm will not give oat antil be has signed in full. Bat this person with a name accuses us of working for subsidies and boodle. Right again, Wellington, w own up we made an unsuccessful attempt to collect a little boodle from you recently which has been due some time. That probably accounts for your attack upon the editor of this paper. Call us boodlers if you like, but remember we do not owe any school district 200;or $300 of public funds entrusted to our care, nor have we while custodians of district school funds loaned the money to private parties and made the teacher wait for his hard earned salary. And now, since Wellington, after a long winded tirade in his article, expressed a de sire to avoid personalities, we, too, have been reluctant in dealing in personalities, using only very mild terms considering the subject at issue. Before we close let us say to our readers that we owe you an apology for appropriat ing so much space to such an insignificant worm as Wellington M. Perry. POINTED AND PERTINENT. The republicans will have a good working majority in the Utah constitutional con vention, which is a good thing for Utah as well as the republican party .- A Washington judge has to decide, in a suit over a will, whether a mother or ber son. both of whom went down with the steamer Elbe, died first. The disposition of a considerable sum of money depends upon the decision. George Francis Train's new hobby is finance. He probaMy knowsquite'as much about it as either Mr. Cleveland or his sec retary of the treasury. Great is Minnesota 1 She has a daughter who is the motbor of five sets of triplets. All the officers of the Tennessee national guard threaten to resign, because the legis lature made no appropriation for an en campment. What's the first duty of a soldier? One of the Indications of prosperity un der the new tariff is a notice that the big : Cooper 4 Hewitt Iron Works, at Treuton, N. J., will soon close for an Indefinite period because of lack of orders. Few newspaper men will have to commit perjury to escape payment of (lit income tax. Few men learn by experience 0f others, Congressmen Bland and Jerry Hinipson will take their "ex" on the lecture platform. The hobos can be counted on to support Tom ami Jerry presidential ticket, even if Tom Watson and Jerry Simpson compose bath ends of it. Is there any reason to bcievt that the government could not have sold those bonds for the same price the Euroiean syn dicate got for (hemT None whatever. It is perfevtl) clear then, that tha 0,000.0o0 made by the syndicate was presented to them by Messrs, Cleveland and Carlisle, at the expense ot the American people. It was a blunder that was criminal In its nature, if not in Its intent. A Philadelphia advocate of the single tax theory was putting the thing rather strong when he said It must be either single tax or civil war. The single tax may come some day, but this country isn't likely to have another civil ws,r. 8TATE INSURANCE COMPANY. Mr. Edmond 0. Oiltner, the new manager of the State Insurance Com pany, was in town this week on busi ness connected with the company and partly to rest after the hard work re quired in the secretary of state's office during a session of the legislature. Mr. Oiltuer ia very sanguine of excep tional success for his company, having doue a finer business during January than any previous January. The new insurance bill passed duriug the recent session, he thinks to be a very equita ble measure. It will bring to the school fund of Oregon from 120,000 to $30,000 annually, and is a just tax, as the several insurance companies have all the protection of our courts, and heretofore have practically paid noth ing, while our home company has paid as much taxes as any ten foreign com panies. Mr. Giltner feels that, to a certain extent, the loyalty of the people should be given to bis company, as it pays over $1300 a month in salaries, every cent of which is spent within the state, and besides all the profits of the com pany remain at hame. There were taken out of Oregon during the year 1893, over $300,000 by foreign insur ance companies as not profits, ac cording to sworn statements on file in the office of the secretary of state. The amount of net profits during 189-1 cannot be ascertained for several weeks yet, but is undoubtedly large. It takes a large exportation of wheat at the present price to keep up such a drain, Hon. Phil Metschan, state treasurer, has been elected president of the State Insurance Company, and the fact of a man of Mr. Metschau's ability, char acter and financial standing accepting such a position is a positive guarantee of the stability of the company, aud of its future success. Mr. Gillner wishes to assure all that honest losses will be paid promptly, but that great care will be taken to ascertain dishonest or even doubtful losses, rs the payment of such losses necessarily increases the rate, and offers a premium on incen diarism. MAYGEB. And now we would not be surprised to hear of a hotel being opened up in the near future op about the Clairmont residence, The people of this community have com menced with all firmness to' put in garden and other crops. There is plowing and planting going on in every direction, and everything ia taking on a brighter look. The many friends of George Mayger were pleased to see him out again. Of all the roads we ever traveled over the one from this place to Clatskanie is the worst. It takes a man four hours to ride on horseback from Mayger to Clatskanie, a distance that it should not take more than an hour and a half to cover. James Buckler is clearing land with a vim that signifies that he means business. Appointments Of the Governor. Salix. Or., March 4. It has been an open secret for days here that the Hon. A.N. Gilbert would be the successor of George B. Downing, superintendent of the penitenti ary. The resignation of Mr. Downing was received and accepted today, and the gov ernor appointed Mr. Gilbert. The other appointments today were : For health officers Dr. J. A. Fulton, at Astoria; Dr. C. W. Tower, Marshland. Expert printer A. F. Hofer, Salem. DIED. PERRY In St. Helens. February 28. 1805. Mattie L. Perry, of consumption, aged 19 years and 11 montns. Perhaps no larger congregation ever was gathered in St. Helens to pay their last re spects to one called to the great beyond than that which assembled at the uhurcb last Sunday in attendance at the funeral of Miss Mattie Perry, and listened in almost breathless silence to the words of cheer spoken by Bey. Judy. There on that beau tiful day the great warm hearts of nearly 200 people went out in sympathy to the sor rowing relatives, whose dear one bad passed to the great beyond from whence no trav eler returneth; whose bright young life had been ebbing away for many months, during all of which time ber young heart was cheer ful, patient, and hopeful to the end. 8he is gone but not forgotten; always a favorite with her associates, and always useful in her daily walks of life. Deceased was the only daughter of Mrs. James Dart. She was laid away in Germany Hill cemetery beside ber two brothers, Lee and Eddie, who died some time ago. Her only brother living Is J. D. Perry, of Sacramento, who was nnable, on account of sickness, to be present. The family hays the sympathy of the entire community ia this sad hour. CRIK.
