THE DEMOCRATIC NORTHWEST, TIIURSDAY. FEBRUARY 5, 1891.

Okk would hardly .have expected a man of Senator Hoar's age and dispo sition to play peek-a-boo with the pub lic, but that's about what he has been, doing of late. The Force bill lacked the force nec essary to make headway against the stronger force of an Intelligent public opinion which bad long ago condemn ed the measure, and it went to the wall as such odious things always should. If Vice President Morton had the key to the Force bill legislation, as the country had been informed by the re Iiublican press, he either must have ost it or the lock must have been so badly broken that it wouldn't work. Anyway he didn't unlock it. . Early in the present session of Con gress, Senator Hoar stated that he would rather see every manufacturing establishment in New England In itch es and the people reduced to 50 cent day and an exclusive diet of cod-fisli, than to see the Force bill fail to become a law. Well, the Force bill has foiled , to become a law. What does Mr. Hoar think of it now? The following description is giren of, a counterfeit half dollar, whlchjis :iil to have a big circulation in the coun try: It is of the date 1887 and ha an excellent ring. The coin is a little thicker than the genuine and to the keen eye both the goddess of liberty and the eagle area little uneasy in their positions. The engraving is good, and it requires an expert to detect the bad coin. Look out for another swindle. This time it is a canvasser pretending to be securing dates for a soldier's history. The questions asked are cheerfully au swered by all and as correctly as possi ble. After the Information has beer written out, the unsuspecting informant ' is requested to sign it, being assured that it is only wanted as authority for publishing. After a few days those in terviewed are furnished a $15 history, and are surprised to And their signa tures to a con tract agreeing to take the book. The ignominious failure cf the Har rison wing of the Republican party to push the Force bill through Congress and thus make the campaign of next year t'ne old, old "bloody shirt" lines, brings up the question of what wilt form the Issues upon which that party will make what will probably be its next national campaign. It dares rot make the tariff the issue, because Re publicans are becoming more hopeless ly divided upon that every day; on finance there is even a worse division, so that at this time it is hard to say what the G. O. P. will do for an issue. The liberal minded and progressive wing of the Republican party, repre sented in the Senate by those Senators who possessed the moral courage to vote against the radical and revolution ary views, whlcn Mr. Harrison Has adnnted as his own. of how the Repub lican party might be indefinitely kept in power by the intimidating use of the Army in the south, will do much to save their self respect and to avoid fu ture abuse from the radicals of their partv.bv leaving the party with which they are no longer In accord, and with which thev can never hope to be again in harmony with. The Democratic nartv stands for much that these men believe in, and it stands ready to give. them a "warm welcome to its ranKs. Will they come? The Democratic Senators are certain ly deserving of the thanks of the coun try for the able manner in which they foiled every attempt of the Harrison Republicans to pass the Force bill and ila revolutionary fore-runnt r, the Aid- rich gag rule. Only those upon the eroiind know of the many personal sacrifices made by the Democrats, in order to be constantly on nana, pre' nared to take advantage of every fav nrAhle circumstance that might arise: but these sacrifices are fully appreciat ed, not only by the grateful constitu ents of the Democratic Senators, but by the country at large, which rejoices to know that both gfe rule and Force bill are shelved It is hoped never again to be heard from. . A California Vehicle. -In early times there was not in Cali fornia any vehicle except a rude Cali fornia cart; the wheels were withoul tires, and were made by felling an oak tree and bowing it down till 11 inade a solid wheel nearly a foot thick on the rim and a little larger where the axle went through. The hole for th axle would be eight or nine inches in diameter, but a few years' use would In crease it to a foot. To make the hole at augur, gouge, or chisel was sometime) - used, but the prliicipal tool was an ax. A small tree required but little hewlnj and shaping to answer for an axle. These carts were always drawn by oxen, the yoke being lathed with rawhide U the horns. To lubricate the axle the used soap (that is one thing the Mexi cans could make), carrying along for thi purpose a big pail of thick soapsuds, which was constantly put In the box oi hole; but you could generally tell whei a California cart was coming half a mill away by the squeaking. The best , families in California wen; long distances attherate of thirty milei br more a day, visiting in one of thes clumsy two-wheeled vehicles. They haij a little frame-werk around it made o round sticks, and a bullock hide was put ' In,. for a floor or bottom. Sometimes thi better class would have a little calico f oj curtains and cover. There was no sue! thing as a spoked wheel in use then. It Didn't Work. An American opened an offico iu Parli Ljy and advertised 40 watches for 75 cents, J It wasn't over two hours after the firs ad" appeared before he was walked ol to jail. He evidently mistook Frano . for an American suburb. Had he offeroi a $75 watch for 1$ cents in this country I would have boon all serene. THE LEPER'S HUT. Vrfcaro a rjr Hawaam Will An Xla A Chinese leper crouches la a filthy hovel, nnatUadrd and oa cared for, J tut oaUtde the limits of Sacramento, CaL, sayt a correspondent His abode Is la a mM of willow and tangled underbrush la an unfrequented spot along the Cen tral Pacific Railroad. After a Rood deal of dodging of old tree bent In every direction by wind and the current of the river that at tlmoa washes the levees, a dismal, shaded spot Is reached almost directly under the levees, Ilere, dttnlr seen In the thick bramble, Is a hut or hovel, or whatever one may choose to call the gloomy habitation of the poor outcast, as effectually hidden from the world, almost, as If it had been blddon in the fastnesses of an Impenetrable wilderness. ' Waiting for death, the poor follow crouches all day long In his mis erable shelter, keeping shy of his few visitors and looking with suspicion upon everybody who approaches. The China man speaks wall in pigeon English, and told rather sadly that the Chinese doc tors, like most of their civilized proto types, are not In the habit of working for their health. He Is sure that they could cure him If he had 910 to pay them, and then graphically Illustrated the power of money. "Me catchee ten dolla catchem heap well. No catchee money China docta no likee mo. " As to Ameri can doctors, he had very little confidence in their ability to do him any good. He said that the disease first appeared under the right eye about a year ago. A Chinese doctor advise 1 him to stop drinking vinegar, and when ho followed directions the sore healed and disap peared. He scon forgot himself and re sumed the use of vinegar, and the in fection again broke out. ' THE TRAVELER'S TREE. How It Quenched the Thirst or a Tired European. A European traveler on his way from the coast of Madagascar to the capital, Tananarivo, In the interior, had emptied his water flask and was suffering from thirst. He asked one of the natives of his party when he should be able to ob tain water. "Any time you like, sir," said the native with a smile. The European saw no sign of springs or water; but the natives conducted him to a group of palm-like trees standing In a cluster on the edge of the forest, with straight trunks and biff bright green leaves growing from the opposite sides of the stalk, and making the treo appear like a great fan. The white man gazed admiringly at the tree. You think it a fine tree, but I will show you what It is good for," said the native. v He pierced the root of one of the leaf stems at the point where it joined the tree, whereupon a stream of -clear water spurted out, which the European caught in his water-can and found to be fresh, cool and excellent to drink. After the party had satisfied their thirst and taken a supply, the native who had spoken went on; "This tree, which is good for us In more ways than one, we call the travel er's tree." "But where docs the water come from that the tree contains? Is it taken up from the soil?" inquired the white man. "Oh, no," said the native. "The leaves drink In the rain that falls on them, and when it has passed through them it becomes very pure and. sweet" A Mew National Parle. Probably few people east of the Rocky Mountains are aware that during au tumn of the past year a now national pleasure-ground, larger than the State ol Rhode Island, was established in this country. This spacious park Is in Cali fornia, completely surrounding the Yo semite valley grant of 1864, and about thirty times as largo as that grant. It takes in not only the entire water-shed of the Merced River region, as defined by the encircling mountain range which Includes Toulumne Peak, Unicorn Peak, and Cathedral Peak on the north and northeast, Mount Lyell with its superb glaciers on the east, and Buena Vista Peak on the south; but it embraces, also, the noble Hetchy Hetchy valley, itself a second Yosemite, and the magnificent Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne, with its massive walls and domes, and its cas cades unequalled In volume of water by those of any other canyon in the Sierra. It crosses the Tuolumne meadows and annexes the splendid range that contains Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs and the Mono Pass. It has saved from the lum berman and the saw-mill the Mono Pass, the Merced and Tuolumne groves of bltf trees, and has secured Lake Eleanor. In short, it has brought within Its protect ing area all that needs to be reserved Iir that region of nature s marvels. It! area Is from 40 to 45 miles ea'st and west and about 37 miles north and south THE PORTER IN HIS PALACE. No King Ever Ruled with a Tyranny More , Unrelenting and Severe. A gentleman who was traveling on a sleeping-car and was to alight about 3 in ine morning, says the Boston Courier. gave the porter explicit directions to wake him at the proper time, and went to sleep. About midnight the porter came ana aroused him. "Excuse me. sah." the porter said. "but I forgot whare you's goin' to get off." The passenger, not much pleased at tbls Interruption, repeated his direc tlons, and then again addressed himself to sleep. He slept until a few minutes of the arrival of the train at the point wnere ne was to stop, when he fortu nately awoke. Looking at his watch, he discovered that he had barely time to get aressea, ana be scrambled Into , his clothes with a celerity that saved him from missing his station, all tho time saying to himself things concerning the porter wnicn were by no means compli mentary to teat individual. As the train drew in the station, where It made a stop of only a moment, the gentleman hurried out of tho car, and as he did so passed the portor, sound asleep on a seat in the smoking-room. With a poke of his valise the passenger awakened him. "I say," he demanded, "why didn't you call me as I told you to? I came very near sleeping over," The porter drew himself up with a sleepy dignity, suppressing a yawn and rubbing his eyes open. ' "On dls car," he returned, with the air of one who had been greatly insulted, "dar ain't nono of the passengers 'lowed to wake up the porter, an' you'll have to wait till this individual wakes up of himsel', before - you can get any such question answered." -. With perfect coolness he laid himself down again, and the passenger 'hurried put ol. the car without waiting to con tinue the conversation. VABIOUS TRIFLES.

They are ail made alike, the only differ, ence being In the material, the Chlel Justice wearing black Chinese satin, while his associates are robed In black silk. Too Visionary. - "Your father refuses his consent tq our union, Myrtle?" he despondingly "He does, Harold." Nothing seems to bo left for us, then, except elopement! 1)3 you think," salt the young man, swallowing a sob, "thai you could leave this luxurious home, for felt all the enjoyments of wealth, banist yourself forever from your parents, and go to the West with a poor young man to enter a home of lifelong pov erty?" "I think I could, Harold." "Then you are not tho practical girl J have always taken you to b," said Harold, with deep dejection, as he ros up wearily and reached for his hat. Approaching the Danger Line. Edith was required by her mother t assist In household labor, and it fell U, her lot to dust the stairs. When dusting day came round little Edith would mean, "Oh, how unhappy I ami" but after sh had completed her task she would change her tune and say, "How happy I am II On the last recurrence of the dreadful day, Edith went about her work wlthoui being told. When she had finished, how ever, she came Into the sitting-room will; a sad, troubled face. "Mamma," sh said, "I'se 'fraid I'se going to die. "I'v got so good that I love to dust.

It receive Ulustreuontn toe career of the Cudahy brother la Chicago Michael, Patrick, Edward and John. They came to this country from Ireland twonty year ago, and found employ ment at day laborer in Plankinton St Armour' packing establishment In Mil waukee. They wore bright, iodtutriou and resource uL Step by step they were slvanced to auperior positions. They oemed to have an Intuitive knowledge of everything pertaining to the packing business, were quick to absorb details, i id were constantly Introducing Im provements that increased the return of their employers. In 1873 Michael Cudahy was made superintendent of Armour' plant, and a year later he be came Armour partner. As a practical butcher and packer his experience and Judgment were valuable to the new firm, lie knew how to buy and how to run a packing-house. For sixteen year he has had complete control of the busl ness at the Stock Yards, and during that entire period he was rarely ever missed being at his post early in tho morning, remaining until late In the evening. To-day these yards are the largest and most complete of any In the world. Michael now withdraws from the firm to .take charge of the Omaha stock yards. He Is worth $0,000,000. His brother John and Pat have made (3,000,000 apiece In the business, and his brother Ea, worth 32,000,000, has been receiving a salary of $25,000 and a share of the profits as superintendent ot "Armour's packing-house. Had Eggs in His Shoes. Congressman-elect Lock wood was an orator long before his rhetorio helped to carry Grover Cleveland aloft. Away back in his school days at Hamburg he was an orator of such note that he was chosen valedictorian of his class.. He prepared the event by ordering a new pair of shoes. Late in the afternoon of the great day the shoes camo. But, good heavensl they wouldn't go on. Dan hadn't another pair fit for U9e. He summoned the shoemaker to a confer ence, and, while the perspiration rolled off his face, he explained the situation. "That's nothing," said Crispin; "get a couple of eggs and break one into each shoe." Dan did so and the result was charm ing. He went into those shoos like a duck's foot in the mud. His valedictory was the greatest effort of Lockwood's career up to that date. The words were honeyed and the gestures as graceful as a snake swallowing a frog. All his friends and relatives were spellbound. But right in the midst of it the author stopped. Agony was Incarnate in his features. His hair rose on end. Ho be came pale and red in turns.
