OREGOX, MISSOURI. Issued Every Friday. TERMS: SI.50 PER YEAR IN ADVANCE I"'rnl:iv .January 4. 180.. DOBYNS & OURRY.Publishers Wants a Clnrapcr Dollar. Mr. ISland lias prepared a Buhstitute for the Carlisle currency lill which, at tho proper time, ho will introduce in the house. There is no ptospect of its breaming a la. v. It has value, however, as showing the real designs of tlie free silver men who hold to the 1C to I ratio. Mr. Bland's hill first provides that "tho unit of valuo in tho United States shall bo tho standard dollar as now coined, consisting of 512 1-2 grains standard silver.' Ho omits the gold unit entire ly. And it further provides for the free coinage of all the silver bullion present ed at the mints. At present wo have ntd hav.3 had over since 1873 two different dollars, whoso actual valuo vary widely. We have tho gold dollar, composed of 2."i.8 grains of standard gold; and tho silver dollar, of 112 1 2 grains of standard eil ver. Tho only reason of making a coin of a precious tnetalis that it may con tain tho actual value. Tho valuo is not in tho namo "dollar," but in tho worth of the metal of which it is composed. Tho coin of 25.8 .'grains of sold was mado the unit of value, by the act of of 1873, but had been the actuel unit over since 1S54. By tho Bland act of 1378, tho namo "dollar" was conferred oa a coin consisting of 412 1-2 grains of standard silver. As the valuo of any coin of ultimate redemption depends solely on the worth of the metal com prising it, congress was guilty of tho ab surdity of attempting by legislation to give the samo valuo to two coins, differ ing in real valuo. Tho plea was made during tho discussions on the Bland bill, that silver was unduly depressed, and thai tho measure would cause it to rise in market valuo so that the two coins should bo equal. This faded, as we all know; and at present tho silver in the the silver dollar is really worth only about half that of the gold dollar. Many people aro perplexed, in con sidering these facts, by tho fact that a silver dollar will buy as much as aioId dollar. Tho reason is a very simple one. It lies in the redemption, on de mand, of the greenbacks and treasury notes of 1S90 in gold by tho United States Treasury. Any ono can exchange silver dollars for either of these, take tho notes to tho treasury and get gold for them. Ilenco ho i3 not going to take le6S than a gold dollar's value for a silver dollar. It is this fact, and this nlone, which gives t.io silver dollar equal purchasing power with tho gold dollar. Mr. Bland's bill is to make tho silver dollar the unit, and to replace tho green backs, tho treasury notes of 1802, tho gold certificates and silver certificates1, all with what ho calls "coin notes.' His provision is: Any holder of gold or silver bullon of the valuo of 6100 or more, of standard fineness, shall bo entitled to have tho same struck into any authorized coins of the United States, free of charge at the mints of the United States, or tho owner of tho bullion may deposit the samo at such mints and receivo there for coin notes equal in amount to the coinage valuo of tho bullon deposited and the bullion thereupon shall become tho property of tho government. That of the coin notes so issued shall bo in denominations not less than SI nor more than $1,000, and shall bo a legal tender in like manner and invested with tho samo monetary uses as tho standard gold and silver coins of tho United States. Another section provides for the stop page of the issuo of gold or silver certi ficates and treasury notes. It provides that these certificates and notes shall be canceled and destroyed as fast as they come into tho treasury, and that coin notes shall takes the place of them. Tho coin notes outstanding must be neither greater nor less in volume than tho coin or coining value of the bullion in the treasury. Coin notes aro to bo redeemed when presented in sums of 810 or more. Discriminations between gold and silver in tho redemption is for bidden. This is made ono of tho strong features of tho substitute. Another notable feature is tho :. positive prohibi tion of the issuo of donds to get gold so long as there is cither gold or silver in the treasury. This means that tho country's fitian cos shall bo put on tho silver basis. Xo man who has studied financial shall be put on tho silver basis. Xo man who has studied financial questions with any degrco of thoroughness can fail to seothis. Our money of ultimate re demption will bathe silverdollar. What buying valuo would that dollar have under tho conditions of his bill? With tho provisious swept away which now maintain it at the same valuo as the golu dollar. It would hare only tho market valuo of tho silver in it. This would mean that n man getting a pension of 812 a month would then get twelve dollars, but each dollar would buy only half as much as now. Every man with, 6100 in a sayings bank would in tho samo way, have its actual value cut in in half. Every insurance policy, life or fire, would suffer the same redu tion. Every man who had money owing linn would be repaid only half of the actual valuo of tho loan. Thero is not a debt or obligation in tho United States but was contracted under tho gold standard, and Bland proposes to rob every lender of half his loan. That is what the Bland substitute means, and it is what tho freo coinage of silver at 1C to 1 moans. Mr. Ira P. Wetmore, a prominent real estate agont of San Angelo, Texas, has used Chaniborlain's .Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy in his family for several years as occasion required, and always with perfect success.

For sale by C. O. Proud. Who .Struck- First? ! There is no call for any special dis play of indignation on the part of tho government at Washington on account of Spain's discriminating tariff. Until tho McKinley bill became a law the Spanish tariff againatour products was practically tlios-ame as now. A reciproc ity agreement was madis under which tho products of Cuba wero admitted to the United States and our Hour and meats were shippeJ there at favored rates. Tho commerce between tho two countries at once began to grow at an astonishing rate. But the "business administration," coming into power, determined that tho reciprocity agreements must go to tho wall with the protective tariff and what was left for Spain to do but return tho United States to "tho first column?' Can it bo possible that Mr. Gresham holds that the Spanish government had nojnght to ro establish its discriminating tariff against tho United States when this country, without so much .13 a by. your leave, abrogated a treaty thai was made in all good faith scarcely two years before? But wo need not ask if it is possible, for the dispatches from Washington tell us that he does think so, and that ho is about to take some very grave step in regard to tho matter now that tho Spanish government re fuses to change its courso at his dicta tion. It will be extremely fortunate if tho secretary of stato does not succeed in getting the country into some complica tion with foreign governments that will bo very hard to settle, before ho retires from his high position. In all the his tory of the government thero has never been a time when thero was such gross incompetence in the management of its foreign affairs. If it wero not for the fact that the secretary is repudiated by tho people of all parties and by tho press unanimously, tho nation would long ago have been made a laughing stock all over Europe. As it is, Gresham himself and Grover Cleveland his sponsor have to bear tho burden of disfavor that meets nearly everything ho undertakes to do. Kansas City Journal.

A few weeks ago tho Journal explain ed tho condition of tho road laws of the state, which levy a tax of labor and money in direct opposition to a plain provision of tho constitution, and sug gested the necessity for a complete re vision of article X. of that instrument which regulates taxation. What motive guided the farmers of that article is known only to themselves, but it is charitable to suppose that they forgot to mako any provision for a road tax, rather than to infer that they intended to leave tho people without auy means of keeping their highways in order. But tho people of Linn county aro now con fronted by a condition brought about by another blunder of these wise constitu tion makers, which will cause no end of difficulty in the administration of tho county. Tho constitutional limit of taxation in counties having a valuation of less than six million dollars, is GO cents on the dollar. In counties having more than six million and less than ten million valuation, it is 40 cents. As the valu ation changes tho per ent of tax first falls and then rises again, being as fol lows: On counties having. iVuo,oW) or under . 5 30 (yio.ooa tn lo.ooo.ono in.wu.wo to s'.lNio.ttw 3),u,0wi or over- 10 so . Si If anybody can give a reason -vis counties having a valuation of between six and ten millions should levy a less tax than those which aro above or be low these figures, wo havo never seen it. For tho first time tho valuation of Linn county has passed tho six million limit, and tho rato of taxation falls to 40 cents. Just at this time, too, thosupremo court has decided that no township tax can be levied just as they will havo to de cide that no road tax can bo levied when ever tho question comes before them. Last year tho county court mado a levy of 50 cents for county purposes and 20 cents fur township purposes, making seventy cents in nil, and it was quito small enough for the needed expenses. This year they can only levy 40 cents for both purposes, and how tho expen ses of tho townships aro to bo paid is tho problpm with which the county cojrt will have to wrestle. Whether they will conclude to let the paupers starve, and stop all repairs and building of bridges, rent out tho county jail, and hold court on tho public square or not hold any court at all, and let everybody look out for himself, is what wo are waitingto see. If tho legislature does its duty and submits an amendment to tho popular vote, it will bo two years beforo it can bo voted on, and nearly two years more before a tax can bo collected under it. It nothing is done, wc shall bo going back to barbarism very rapidly for tho next decado. Tno people aro willing to pay a reasonablo tax rather than to dis penso with roads, bridges nnd civil government, they prefer to havo all tax ed alike for the support of paupere.rath cr than to havo that class of people left on tho hands of the few benevolent per sons who oven now havo to bear a largo part of the burden. The press should call tho attention of the people and the members of the legislature to this condi tion of affairs, and insist on a thorough rovisiou of tho present systom of taxa tion. From tho Marceline Journal. Never Anything Iikc It. Xever has tho financial proposition of on administration been so generally con demned by all thoso who havo knowl edge and experience about banking as has tho Cleveland banking scheme. lSut there has never been such an objection able measure devised by an administra tion before. From tho St. Joseph Her ald. Sr.cnirr.nv Mouton's theory of im proving the soil of farming lands is that the currency ought to bo established more firmly on a gold basis. How tho farmors ever succeeded in raising any thing at all without the aid of our prac tical agricultural department is n deep ening mystery. Di'iiiocr-itic I.i't;is;ition. The harvesting of the .sugar -crop is now in full progress in Louisiana and tho cron will Ui the largest ever taken off those Southern cr.ue fields, because tho pliaiterb had faith in the honesty of the American Government and put a very large area under cultivation, stimu lated to d' ro by the Melvinley tariff. These plauter.-i had complied with every requirement ui" the law that on titled them to the payment or a bounty on this crop, but tin; legislation of their party representative in congress has deliberately robbed them of the money that should bo paid to them under tho licenses that had previously been issued. i; '.Vhat is tho result? Owing to tho sugar crops; in other parts of tho world aggregating a supply hitherto uukown, the price of raw sugar has fallen to a nnn paying point. There aro thousands of tons of cane seeking buyers in Louisiana at $2 a ton. Tho mill owners are afraid to buy it even at thai low figure, although they gladly paid up to 65 per Ion for tho sugar cane crop of 103. There ha.-! probably been more cane grown than tho capacity of the mills can handle, and a sudden spell of freez ing weather would result in tho logs of thousands of dollars, and in tho utter ruin of the small farmers who grow tho cane upon which they entirely depend to provido the actual necessaries of life. Tho people of Louisiana are exasperated. They aro disgusted with their Democratic party and with their Democratic representatives ic congress. But this is not all. Tho growers of tho sugar cane and the manufacturers of tho sugar havo been quarreling among themselves. Tn Eorae places mobs havo taken oossession of tho mills and will .neither permit tho mills te operato nor the planters to .deliver their cane. Added to these troubles is the action of tho sugar trust in forcing down tho price of 6iigar in those mar kets that have heretofore been supplied by the Louisiana sugar manufacturers. This is tho unfortunate condition of affairs in Louisiana, a Democratic s:ate, brought abDut entirely by Democratic legislation. Under Republican logisla tion Louisiana was prosperous, her people wero happy. Louisiana should leanr her lesson. Most people can not afford to ex periment. They want immediate relief.

Dun & Co.'s mercantile agency on the earnings of labor, inquires being mado from thous ands ol employes which 6how that in the samo establishments there aro 10.2 per cent, more people employed than a year ago, but S.C per cent, less than in 1S92. The average of earnings for over 250.1JO0 hands is 1 per cent, larger than in Xovember, 1S1, but 11 1 2 per cent, less than for Xovember, 1592. The returns aro gathered Trom ;ho pay rolls of several thousand manufacturers for Xovember this year, 1S93 and 18112. and they show an increaso in the total pay ments of 15.2 per "cent, over last year, but a decreaso of 18-1 per cent, as com pared with 1SU2. In somo of the in dustries there are luoro hands at work than two years ago, while in others tho decreaso is very large. In no singio case, however, aro tho earnings of labor as groat as they wero two years ago. It is particularly important to notice that very few returns have been receiv ed from many hundred manufacturing concerns which arc not in operation at this time, so that the result of tho in vestigation is interesting only as far as it relates to those factories which havo been working in the month of Xovem ber in each of the three years. If tho loss of wages resulting through factories that aro closeil now, but which wero previously in operation, and tho number of hands that are thus ren dered idle were also taken into con sideration, it is clear, as stated by Dun's Review, that "owing to the decrease in hands employed and in the aggregate of wages, the result would obveously be somewhat greater.

The Philadelphia Ledger has prepared an extremely interesting nrticle cover ing the debt reduction from tho end of tho war down to tho time the Democrats obtained control of the government last year, by fiscal years -from .Tulyl, 1S05, to July I, 1S02. In these '27 years tho interest-bearing debt of tho United States was reduced by $1,700,10:1,103. The annual interest fell from nearly $151,000,000 to 822.874, 1! 13, and the aver ago yearly debt reduction was Sd,C9!,- 033. It is hard to reali.o what these immense sums really mean. Perhaps a clearer idea may be obtained from a tabulation, showing the amount of debt paid for every second, minute, hour,day, week, month and year embraced in the 27 years of Kepublican financiering.

Xeatuess is aa attribute indispens able, and one that tells its own tale, and should be observed in the dining room j aoove uii otner places, i'lain neat cloth-1 ing should be worn. The hair should 1 be arranged us plainly as possble. A maid should always bo well capped and aproned, and her shoes should be such as to render her walking as near uoiso- less as possible. A few rules essential to one who has the care of the dining room are given. A waiting maid should not make her appearanco in the dining room until af ter the guesta are seated. Xapkins should always be folded as simply as possible. Fanciful shapes sug gest the hotel and restanrant. Always place tumblers to tho right, and till only three quarters full. In setting tho table the tines of the fork should be turned up and the sharp edge of the knife blade toward the plate. placing the fork next tho plate. Place the cup containing coffee at the right of each person; offer sugar and cream at tho left. Alwaysin offering anything to a guest go to the left., Allowing the person serv ed to use the right hand. Any dish from which a person helps himself roust be offered ut the left.

Always go to the right of each person to remove the dishes. Tho waiting maid must be responsi ble for the pi ope r heating of dishes be fore they are brought to the table. Except in case of accident which she cannot remedy, n maid should never speak to the hostess, who should be looked upon as a guest at her own table for the time being, and treated accord ingly. A maid who is watchful will never per mit one guest to help another in the passing of food. Avoid all appearance of haste, though one mu6t move quickly in order to ac complish all there is to be done. Xew York Sun. It Docs not Cost Anything. To try Parks' Sure Cure.

A St. Louis dispatch during last week announced that anti-toxine wa9 tried there on Monday last, in the case of a three-year-old child. The doctors were about to resort to tracheotomy as the last chance, when the father and mother consented to the trial of the new remedy. "Its effect was instantly apparent," 6aya the account. "The child breathed easier and in twelve hours the diphtheretic symptoms had passed away. Dr. Ii.oux, of the Pasteur Institute, Paris, writes to the Xew York Herald: The mortality for diptheria is no long er in the hospitals of Paris more than II per cent icetead of 50 per cent, which was the figure during preceding years. This will sutlice to show you what a benefit we owe M. iieuring, who intro duced into science the anti diphtheretic serum. As for my share, I am very nap py to have contributed, with the assis tance of Messrs. Martin and Chaillon in introducing the new treatment into practice. If tho event justifies the hope and faith of theso pioneer experiments, an other great cheery evangel of science has come to the sick beds, and to the sick hearts keeping vigil beside them. The now remedy, if it proves to bo all that is claimed for it, will be the great est Christmas present, mankind has re ceived for many years.

The first thing to do in reading a book, or a 6tory in a magazine, or any other thing worth reading, is to ascertain who wrote it. An author talks to us in his books, and just as like to know the friends we talk with we should like to know the name of the man or women whose published thoughts are entering into our daily lives. Therefore make it n rule, girls, to read tho title-pace of the volume in your hand; and if there be a preface, unless it be a very long one.read that too. You will in this way establish an acquaintance with your author; you will know him more intimately. Every author has little ways and words of his own, and you will rind yourself recog nizing these very swiftly and loyingly By-and-by, when you happen in your story on some phrase, or turn of a sen tence, or little jesting mannerism which belongs to the author you are growing well acquainted with, you will feel pleased, and the 6tory will mean a great deal more to you than if it were simply tho work of an unknown person, whose tones nnd locks were quite unfamiliar. From Harper's Young people. Afraid ot Pneumonia. Mrs. Catherine BInck, of Le Roy, X. Y., took n severe cold. The physician feared Pneumonia. She took one bot tle of Parks' Cough Syrup and says: "It acted like magic. Stopped my cough nnd I am perfectly well now.

One of tho beauties of the income tax is the army of office holders at good fat J salaries which will be necessary to en force the law. The Treasury Depart ment has furnished tho Appropriation Committee tho estimates required to carry the income tax provision of the tariff law into effect for the remainder of the fiscal year beginning January 1, 1S!C. This it will be remembered, is on ly for six months. The estimates for the collection for tax until July, 1, 180.", ag gregate 8245,005, and include provision for one statistician, &X500; an additional head of division, 82,000; six clerks at ?1, 100; eight clerks at 2L200; seven clerks at 81,000; one messenger at $420; salaries and expenses of 303 additional deputy collectors, 8211,800. and salaries and ex penses of ten additional revenue agents, 81,500. For the whole year it is presum ed that this estimate must be doubled. The principal object of the law seems to he to provido soft places for spoilsmen.
