The Official Paper of San Joan County.
THURSDAY. JUNE 30th, 1898.
The Lawson smuggling case has
naturally occasioned considerable com
ment in this county and especially
«inong people somewhat familiar with
the circumstances and to whom the
young men engaged in the affair are
well known. Although there are few
who profess to believe that the two
Lawsoi) • rothers who were arrested
last we> / \re Innocent of the offense
charged Ihere are many who openly
sympa*' . ith them and who mani
festly do i. _- regard such violations of
thi law as in any sense a matter of
serious concern. It can hardly be
doubted that many good citizens, who
would quickly resent the least imputa
tion that they are not law abiding and
law respecting, entertain this view. It
is much to be regretted that they do,
lor even if they do not extend any ma
terial aid to known offenders, their in
fluence is unquestionably a stimulus to
wrong-doing and a hindrance instead
of a help to the officers who are sworn
to uphold and enforce the law. The
Lawson brothers are young men of
good standing, who own a fine farm
and one of the largest and best stocked
ranges in the county. Aud it happens,
too, that they have hundreds of sheep
whose value lias been very greatly en
hanced by the very law which they
are believed to have violated, and at a
time when the nation is engaged in
war with a foreign power and the gov
ernment is not only in need of every
dollar of revenue that it can get, but of
the strong moral support of all good
citizens. It is hardly likely that they
would rejoice to see the American mar
ket again open to the free importation
of wool from the vast ranges of Austra
lia aud South America, as it v as under
the Wilson tariff law, when hundreds
of thousands of sheep were sent to the
cities to be slaughtered because it did
not pay to keep them for their fleeces.
From our standpoint at least there is
no justification for their flagrant viola
tion of a law which in general is a boon
to every farmer and has added very
greatly to the present and prospective
value of their personal property. The
situation and advantages of this county
are such that it is scarcely surprising
that there is considerable temptation at
times to engage in this sort of business.
Those who allow themselves to yield to
it may perhaps reasonably argue that
their chances of success are good so
long as there is only one customs offi
cial regularly stationed in the county,
and one officer of the revenue service
who is expected to cruise over a large
area and guard hundreds of miles
of coast line. These" officers, how
ever, may be relied upon to do their
full duty as they understand it, "with
malice toward none," and enforce the
law strictly and justly so far as lies
within their power.
The Bureau of Statistics reports that
the total exportation from the United
States to foreign countries during the
month of May amounted to $110,239,
--206—0r almost double the exportation^
of 1890, and quite fifty per cent more
than for the corresponding month of
1897, which was unusually large. The
total exportatious for the eleven months
ending May 31, 1898, were $1,135,485,
--619—0r $250,000,000 more than the ex
portations of 1890 (same time), and
1150,000,000 more than for the corres
ponding eleven months prior to May
81, 1867. The Seattle Times feels
called upon to offer some apologies for
this very satisfactory state of affairs, so
different from the conditions which
would exist if the financial and eco
nomic theories which it advocates
were in force as laws, and puts forth
the gaunt old excuse which its school
of politics has labled "famine abroad."
It knows well enough that there is no
such "famine abroad" as there was a
year ago, and that foreign market con
ditions are not materially different, so
far as they are affected by home suf
ply, from what the? had been during
Ml the recent years of Democratic rale.
The enormous balance of trade in onr
favor—really the largest in our history
proof conclusive that notwith
standing the business depression con
sequent upon the war, the country is
enjoying, under the sound economic
and financial policy of the Republican
party, a far greater degree of prosperity
than had existed before for years.
Acx»kdinq to the reports received
by the Department of Agriculture 43,
--000,000. acres have been sown to wheat
in the United States this year and it is
estimated that the crop will reach the
enormous total of 637,300,000 bushels.
While wheat is still the "king product
of the republic" and by far the most
powerful lector in the food markets, it
\* interesting and encouraging to note
that corn is making a most astonishing
I advance in the favor of consumers both
at home and abroad. In the year end-
Jug June 30,1888, there were exportedij
from this country 24,278,417 bushels of
corn: This wwarts rt before Mr. Murphy,
(he agent of the United States govern
ment, had begun his systematic and
effective foreign work in illustrating
the cooking of corn. In the year end
ing June 30, 1897, the exports were
176,916,385 bushels, seven times as large
as nine years before. Already this
fiscal year we have exported 184,000,
--000 bushels, and it is likely 200,000,000
bushels will be the total for the year.
A* enthusiastic and imaginative
eastern correspondent of the Post-In
telligencer wired a couple of weeks or
so ago that the president was about to
strike the enemy in his "solar plexus,"
and a patient and patriotic people were
given to understand that that would
settle the war. It is to be hoped that
the president may soon be able to find
the particular place referred to and con
centrate our forces against it in an ef
fective and conclusive way. If the
enemy has a "solar plexus," we ought
not to lose any time in getting in our
work right there. By they way, why
not equip the valiant Lieut.-Col. J.
Ham Lewis with a mule and a Maxim
gun and send him out to do up the
enemy at this important point and end
the war.
Here is a table which it might be
well for the farmer to paste in his hat
for reference before going to the polls
this fall. It shows the importations of
wool at New York, Boston and Phila
delphia in the first six months under
the Dingley law, compared with those
of the last six months under the Wilson
law:

One of the features of the additional
tax of $1 per barrel upon beer is the
proof that the breweries are not so pow
erful at the capitol as they have been
rated. They were justified, from a
business point of view, in fighting the
increase in every honorable way, but it
is encouraging to see that congress
could not be influenced to give up this
perfectly just taxation.
The Springfield (Mass.) Republican
points to Russia as an example of a na
tion whose self-containment has made
it "the most dreaded power in the
world." And yet this is the nation
that has been gradually pushing its
way through China and Corea to the
Pacific. Russie is "self-contained" in
that she longs for the earth.
One of the exhibits of the state of
Kansas at the Omaha exposition is to
be three car loads of canceled farm
mortgages. Such an exhibition would
not have been possible during the ad*
ministration of President Cleveland
and the operation of Prof. Wilson's
tariff law. ■*•
Sugar Trust stock has declined be
fore the prospect of the annexation of
Hawaii. In spite of frantic denials,
this one hard little fact shows conclu
sively on what side the great "com
bine" has been fighting in this cam
paign.
American sales of merchandise to
foreign countries, which were $80,000,
--000 in May of 1897, were $110,000,000 in
our "battle month" of May this year—
so little has this war with Spain
touched the country's commerce.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press puts the
question of the hour as follows: "Quo
hades vadis Cadiz iiavis?"
