THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE.
BIAURDAY. NOVKMBIIIC 21. 1891. OP1'.t 1if f'.P(I.1 NO. And now comnes that promised and anxiously looked for report of the super vising agent of the treasury Mr. A. K. Tingle. t..uching the smnllglingof opium into this country from the. other side of the boundary line. The first dispatchIes published in thews columns some time ago concerning the matter stated that the report would le very voluminous and that it would implicate many federal and other olticers in smuggling the narcotic, ilmong wha ii were five congressilen and two United States senators. The report makes no mention of this branch of the subject, but deals directly with the smuggling of Chinese and I is insepara ble coplialliion opium. The peculiar fI.ture of the report and one which will provoke more or less comment upon ithe part of the press of the country is the recommendation of the agent that the ercessive duty upon manufactured opium lie reduced or taken off altogether. lie tells how the crude article is manufactured by our northern neighbors, who exacts and re cwlves a duly upon thel raw material and then smuggles the finished product into this country thus avoiding the payment of the tariff tax (,f 02 per pound. About 70i,tA0 pounds of the prepared article was mani in Victoria last year, about all of which was doiubtless stIuggled into the I'nited States thus saving the ninou facturers somiethinlg like S li).tl,).

The political prophets are at it again and partisan forecasts are already at a discount. Some say that the great hght for democratic domination next year i to be made in Rhode Island, Connecti cut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Indi ana, Iowa and .Michigan. These four eastern and three western states must he won, say the wiseacrens or the demo erats will be left in the presidential race. Now if they had said that New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Indiana and the solid south must be carried by the democrats to win they wouldl come nearer the mark. IIow it happens they must capture Massachusetts to aucceed does not clearly appear. The democrats will elect several democratic electors in Michigan as under its new law presi dential electors will be elected by ion gressional districts instead of by the state at large as formerly. The tariff, of course. will be a promi nent issue in next year's campaign anti unless the incoming congress eliminate silver from politics by enacting a satie factory coinage law it will also be an is sue in the platforms of both parties. There are prophets, however, who pre dict that if silver he pushed to the front by democrats as an issue the party will lose the presidency. The TItmntrsv does not believe it. The recent state elections show that the democratic party has lost nothing from its triumphs of 18:.) and that everything is working in the line of its intere-sts. The democratic horizon is glowing with hope and is. brilliant with promise. prophets of evil to the co.ntrary.

But our Helelni r.onten I srary fails to offer any explanation as t, Ihow it obtained such news or to re tract one word of its conllnents hI.sed upln it. As the Independent's regular corresponldent it (ireat Falls emphat ically denies having telegraphed such matter to that paper and it is learned that nothing was sent over the wires to the Independent or any other paper that could he tortured into a charge that a mob had demanded the person of Jew Jake. the belief prevails here that the story was made up out of whole cloth in the Independent otfice. S:v.:n.st, enthusiastic, but thoughtless republican journals, are shouting for Blaine and McKinley for the president ial ticket next year. They do not seem to comprehend the fact that the logic of the Ohio election points to McKinley as the leader of the republican party in the next campaign. But whether they ad mit it or not Mr. McKinley will never consent to play second tiddle to any man in his party. lie will work in the lead or nowhere. As the father of the pr.s ent tariff and as its defender in a hotly contested election in which he was a suc cessful candidate, he ian justly clhin tirst pltaee upon his party's presdlential tic'ket.

If the representatives of the :33 states, having delegates at the Denver mining congress, represent the views of a major ity of their constituencies there can exist no possible doubt about the propriety of emrodying an out and out free silver coinage plank in the national platform of the democratic party. The congress adopted resolutions touching upon the subject which cannot possibly admitof two interpretations. There is no am higuity of language. nomincing of words. no concealment of sentiment behind meaningless phrases, no "glittering gen eralities" in the resolutions. They say just what they mean. in plain, every day language, and the unanimity with which they were adopted bespeaks the earnest ness of the congress and its fidelity to the cause of the white metal. They say that the demonetizatiol.lf silver was a practical violation of every contract then existing in the United States. It was. The congress could have gone further and declared that it was a violation of every contract exist ing between the United States and the holders of its bonds. Let us see it this is not true. The country incurred a great debt in suppressing the rebellion. It amounted in 1806 to 82,783,000,0tº. The debt was represented by bonds held by banks and individuals at home and abroad. The greater portion of this immense debt was lmade payable in law ful money of the United States. the in terest being payable in coin. Silver was lawful emoney and a lawful coin. In Is;t1 the bondholders prevailed upon a republican eingress to make tlh princi pal payable ill coin its well as the inter est. This was done. All the pins being now ret the next step of the Iandholders was to i dm netize the silver dolllar so that the princtipal and interest of their bonds must be paid in gold coin. This was done in 1s7:1 hby an art entitled ".An act to reviise and annndl thlie Ilis relative t l o the stints, s say olHlces and c'inailigei of tihe' I'lited States." The hill looked all right upon its fate but it ioncetialed at kliife which stabbed Filver to its doath. This was dtlone i o:itting the silver 4ilihiir1 inll the list of .oins to be minteld b1, tihe governmentn. It was claimedii to bet a. cidental. It was. however, purlposely elimninated, after thie bill had passed tihe senate. Sildver was decminitized yi fraud. The bondhollrs then had their inn legs- Th'1y held govermltent securities which they bought under contracit that the ondtls should lie paidil in the lawful lmonltiy of the United States. They had now fixed liatters so they shouhld he paid in gold coin. Therefore we say that the Denver Congrssscould have gone farther and charged that the demonetization of silver was a violation of the contract be tween the United States and its creditors by which violation the creditors swindled the government and the people of the country. They enhanced the purchasing power of their gold by making money dearer, and it was only by the Bland coinage act of 1878 that bankruptcy and ruin were averted. That act, however. was only a partial relief and the silver men are now fighting to make the relief comlplete in which endeavor they are op posed by the gold bugs of the country. Tihe resolutions of the Denver congress should be read and preserved by every miner, every farmer and every other laboring man in the country. They should be frainad and suspended over the hearthstone of every toiler in the land. Here they are and only one soli tary dissenting vote was recorded against htltllit I thr/arO .

The presence of Chinamen in any com munity is the cause of more or less fric tion and trouble. The history of the Pacific coast during the past forty years and that of the tocky mountain states for the last quarter of a century prove this. Still, disagreeable as is their pres ence, no way has been found by which a community may rid itself of them when once they have obtained a foothold in it. Like the poor they are ever with those who have permitted them in their nmidst. Yet there is a way, and only one within the law, to force themn out of a place, and that is: Not to patronize them. If the whole people of any com munity will not employ or purchase the goods and wares manufactured in this country by Chinese labor John China. man cannot live. lie must leave or starve. The Chinese cannot subsist upon each I other in this country. They must work for the superior race in order to make a living. It then follows that if labor IHb withheld from them they must go where they can find employment or become a public charge. A Chinaman will return to his native land rather than become a dependent upon the bounty of an alien country. That is a very commendable trait in the Chinese. There is one thing, however, which stands in the way of a city or community thus ridding itself of the heathen. Public sentiment is not strong enough against the em ployment of Chinamen to imke a with drawal of white patronage effec.tive. Many people think they can't get along without Chinese help. Others are in different and do not care who does their work and others again entertain It ior hid sympanlthy for everyone and anyone exceptt the poor of their own ra(ce and color. .A people thus divided will never rid theiir community of ('hinaltun. Ev:\ery city in tlhe state ex.ep.t i(reat ualls is infected with the pestilemcetf 'Chillnese presencell in ilnd out everyone has its Chinese qulrter w" here ibout I\.vry kI(lownl 'i Illcunder thll suln is practicedliilli, n wherle tilhe street 'scihooll inlg of manlliy hit chihlren is obtained.

The people of Great Falls will not permit the I presellnce herei of (lhiniiaen. .As lIng as they alldhereo l their determ'inltioni tlhey I will havie no Chinese pri obleml to solve for themselves. uint t1here iare othier cities i MontaIn ill hich the lrolleni is a ery seriousll one. Thely liavel strug gled with it but to iino avail andl will al ways ineffectually cope with it until pub lie sentiment lie strong enough to unite all in leaving (hinamen severely to them selves and withdraw patronage of all kinds from them. When this shall be done the Chinese problem in so far as the heathens affect white labor and exert a demoralizing influence upon the youths of the land, will be solved. I| straws show which way the wind blows then the feelers which leading re publican newspapers are throwing out indicate that an effort will be made in the United States senate to unseat Sen ator Brice from Ohio. Sherman wants to succeed himself and Foraker wants to succeed Sherman. If Brice can be un seated upon the charge that he was not a resident of Ohio one year previous to his election room can be made for both Sherman and l'oraker and all friction between those two gentlemen will be avoided. It is a dirty little game. but It is very doubtful whether a sullicient number of republican senators can be found to go into, the nasty business to insure success. Ar the recent gathering of the mem bers of the constitutional convention lion. T. E. ('ollins presented an excep tionally able paper on *"levenue and Taxation." The subject was handled in a logical, forcible manner, and every sen tence was most conclusive and convinc ing. Chairman Collins is an earnest. patriotic worker in every cause identified with the best interests of the masses, and his recent contribution to political literature shows him to Ibe a hearty and enthusiastic advocateof practical refoirm,. Montana I )emocrat. T'ie hinding twine trust las now got its grip on the throats of the farmers of the country. It now owns every bind ing twine manufacturing plant in the United States. With free raw material and a protective tariff on twine to pre vent competition from forieign countries the trust holdls the key t t the music hox and can make the grain growers waltz to its music whether they like it or not. Without a high protective tariff trusts could not exist in the country. Sticik a pin there. Aso now comes the Chicago Trilbune with the admission that there has ieiver been it sheet of the tinplate nee.ided for the domestic article made in this coun try. The elections are over, and lane newspapers think they can affordlto tell the truth, while the tinplate liar is get ting his breath for next year's campaign. Now THAT the Chicago police have their hands in they should see to it that not an opium smuggler leaves that city only to take a trip to the penitentiary. I Chicago has led out in arrests and Han Francisco, Saeramento and other coast cities in this country where Chinese con gregate should follow suit. let nol opium smuggler escape. PENSION EXTRA VAGANCE. The proportions which the pension list is assuming is really startling. If one were told that it had increased from 207,000 in 1871 to 076,000 in 1801 he would question the figures. But they are right, and, what is more, there are over 500,000 new claims pending, nearly all of which will doubtless be allowed, as desertions and dishonorable discharges are no bar to claims for a pension. The cost of pensions this year will reach 150,0,o0,000, an increase of $100,000,000 within the last ten years. That is more than double the whole expenses of the government before the war and at least one third of the national revenue. These are facts which the people of this coun try must sooner or later consider and act upon. It can not lie supposed that this work of claim agents and pettifoggers and idemagolgues can go on forever. There must lie an end to the reckless pension pxiliey of the present administration. Every deserving war veteran recognizes and acknowledges this fact. He knows that the way the pension list is being daily added to must result in the bank ruptcy of the nation or a scaling down of pensions by which the really meritorious must suffer in order that the undeserv ing may be provided for. Something must be done to protect the honorably discharged and disabled old soldiers. This reckless pension extravagance does them great injustice. Tii.\r Iaw is powerLess against public sentiment is strikingly illustrated in East 'I'eni.seei-.

The h',.IKNl rieward offers no temuptation l to the sturdy miners. wlhol havie in this instun.,ce takln the lan\ into thieir own hltunds. Wa1r Senuator Teller said: "Tile de lfl lnt for lfree coinage of the American product only i the denmand of the entllmies and not of tilhe friends of silver," he said what every observing thoughtful mlan knows to Ie true. And further moire when he said that if the friends of free silver coinlag(e listen to any conl iromnise based upon the coinageof Ameri can silver alone they wil neither get un limited coinage nor the coinage of the holnme prloduct. he allso sai5d what was was true. UInlimnited coinage of the white metal will he obtained only by persistent and vigorous fighting. No half-way measures should be accepted. The people want unlimited coinage, and the time is fully ripe to give it to them. Rl..au.(o to the Denver Mining con gress the New York world says: "Such millionaire owners and operators as William A. Clark, Marcus Daly, Gen. Charles S. Warren and Thomas N. Couch have signified their intention to he pres ent." The only remarkable thing about the excerpt is that they are all Mon tanians., and according to the World all millionaires, although two of them have never been classed, financially. among them. The Taun:Nc., however, takes great pleasure in recording their ad vancement into the ranks of the nillion aires. TIt:,.;l: is nothing small about New York. She wants both conventions.
