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,). This

POLITICAL PROPHETS.
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.

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

DENVER CONGRESS RESOLU
TIONS.
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

THE CHINESE PROBLEM.
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

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.

bers of the constitutional convention

tionally able paper on *"levenue and

a logical, forcible manner, and every sen

T'ie hinding twine trust las now got
its grip on the throats of the farmers of
the country. It now owns every bind

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

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.

Wa1r Senuator Teller said: "Tile de

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

the excerpt is that they are all Mon

millionaires, although two of them have
never been classed, financially. among

great pleasure in recording their ad
