SATURDAY OCTOBER 20, 1834 CEURCU AND STATS. There, eaunot be any doubt that the "A. "P. A., or Americaa Protective As Nociattou, is growing in influence End nnniWn in" the United States, and that today the members have a wider field of operations and mora sympa thizers.than they had a year ago. This is caused ty ad' unfounded fear on the part of American citizens that the Catholic church is inimL-al to free in stitutions, and that itB policy is dic tated by the pope at Komfl. This is a mistake. There are members ot this Christian denomination who are as truly American a? the descendants of the Puritans who landed at Plymouth Rock ovrr two centuries ago, and who would not under an circumstanced follow dictation from the Italian pon tiff. Their country, to them is as dear - as it is to the Presbyterian, the Metho dist, the Baptist, or the Unitarian. They were born here, so- were their ancestors, and individual fresdorn is paramount to all other considerations. This is as true of the Catholic as of I. nvAtoutauf mnA Hnrinn ftn AVPntflll uiuutoinni ' a - history of more than a century no peo ple have displayed a more unaeltiali patriotism than Americans. The for eign subjects of European monarchs fint for their king and queen; but the citizens of this republic contend for their birthright, their homes and their liberties, for they alone are sover eigns. Religion can make no differ ence to the citizen, and if he bends the kuee to the trinity or makes confession . every week to a ptiest, or worships what he considers the higher ideal of one supreme ruler of the uuiverse, it cannot diminish in the least his love - of home and country. It may be true - that in post ages the Komisn' church has attempted the most arbitrary rale over its communicants, and invariably united things temporal and things spiritual; bnt there has been a remark able change in this regard in all re ligious denominations. There was time in the histery' of Eagtand when Episcopacy was a synonym for the niAot nnifll nnnrHuinn vhpn Ittfthftn Lind upheld King Jmes iu his butch eries in the "bloody assizes" and when even our own Puritan ancestors perse' cuted innocent, peaceful Quakers in Massachusetts and banged witches in S ile in. These are black spots in the history of Christianity, and if the Catholic church were more vigilant in these persecutions it was simply for the reason that she had the power to be so. Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Puritans and Catholics hare, in the past history of the world, created the ocracies wherever the opportunity pre-, sen ted; bnt the .evolution of human freedom, the light of developed science and toe advancement oi lnteuecttai discernment have proved -that the union of church and state has impaired individual liberty, has chained hu man reason and has been the corner stones upon which has rested tbe most diabolical tyrannies that have disgraced history. . It has made th simple doc trines of the despised Nazrene the g word by which bigots have slaugh tered thongands of. their fellow beings; it has filled the world with heartburn ings and bitter revenge; it has del uged the fairest countries with tbe blood of innocent victims, and made a Christian's hatred more to be dreaded than the barbarism of the savage. The advancement of the world has been mich, during the past century, that union of church and state exists nowhere now. E'en in Italy the af fairs of the state are not dictated by the Roman pontiff, and in Germany, Trance and Russia they are widely separated. la England there has been no danger from this source Bince the great Cromwell beheaded Charles and his parliament passed the Bill of Righto. In tbe United States it never : bid a foothold, except in Puritanical New England, and the least alarm in this line would arouse every American - to determined opposition. The principle of the perpetual sev erance of church and state is the cor ner stone of human liberty; but the alarm of the A. P. A. is unfounded. - There is no Catholic citizen who would uphold it, and if foreign priests,who are not in sympathy with our institution?, ' should attempt to inaugurate it, there would be determined opposition among their own communicants. Eternal vigilance in the price of liberty, but there N no reason in being affrighted at shadows that have no substantial existence. A MISTAKE Judge Lord, the governor-elect of Oregon, was interviewed in San Fran cisco, and is reported to have said that the way in which the subject of the fiee coinage of silver wa handled in the state p'atform was the reason of Republican success last June. He is quoted as saying further that "the people of Oregon attribute the indus trial difficulties, the decline in the price of products and tbe depreciation of property values to the deruonitiz- tinn of silver, and they believe there will be no return of prosperity until silver is remouetiz-id and placed on an equality with gold." This language. coming as it does from, one who ha been considered a circumspect, . con scientious jurist, will be a surprise to many, as the questions discussed dur ing the last campaign are yet fresh in the minds of the people, and they are fully aware that the unlimited coinage of silver was rarely touched npon by public speakers and cut a small figure in any political debate. The. Repub lican- platform was almost an exact copy of the national one of IS92 on this issue, and every one knows thai John Sherman and the uta'.esmen who have shaped the financial policy of the party have never been in faver of fljodiog tbe country with a depreciated currency. They placed the finances of the nation on a very solid basin, and by wise legislation have always man eged to maintain an equality between silver and gold as circulating me diums. there may be a sentiment in some of the mining counties in favor of more silver; but these did not give large Republican majorities, and are among the least populous districts in the state. In Baker county almost wholly dependent on mines, the Popu list legislative ticket was elected, but in Multnomah, where the largest commercial interests are centered, and where there are 188 free-silverites than anywhere in the state, the Re publican majority was the largest ever known. In Wasco,-where the Re publican ticket was elected throughout by figures never before known, the silver question was rarely touched on. The same is true of Umatilla, where a Democratic county was changed to" a Reoublican one. and the ticket r elected by about 300 majority. Judge Lord is mistaken, if Lis lanuuace is reoorted correctly. It was not free Bilver that caused the Repub lican cyclone last June; but the de- nresaion in business caused by the shadow of free trade falling on Amer ican industries and American products. The sheep men of Wasco. Umatilla, Crock and Graht spent time and mouey in support of the R -publican party, believing that every vote it re ceived was one in favor of protection, and if this policy were again in augurated it would increase thp price of their wool. There were no more earnest workers for R-publican suc cess in Eastern Oregon last Jnne than farmers and producers They firmly believed that protection to American industries was a direct financial benefit to them, and every voter was hunted up and induced to go to the polls. There are very few mining counties in Oregon, and the output of silver is inconsiderable. These had little influence on the last election or will have on any hereafter. Oregon is interested in the development of her natural wealth of products of Hocks and of the soil, and these re ceive the greater stimulus from the doctrine of protection to American in dustries than from Democratic free trade that believes in opening wide our gates to all foreign producers. A VANISHING QHOST. The Bjurbons of Louisiana are' sor rowful, well-nigh to the point of weeping, oer the obduracy of the re volted planters pithily says an eastern exchange. "Let usrefer this matter to arbitra tion of all the white voters, let us eliminate the negro from politics, and if a majority' of whites indorse Re publican policy let us all vote Republi can, if not let us all vote Democratic, as we have been accustomed to do." Thus pray tbe Bourbons to the newly born Republicans. And upon refusal of their proposition they bewail the advent of "negro supremacy" and be seech and implore that portion of the white race that is least intelligent to unite against that which is most pro gressive. But, sofil)! The Bourbons place themselves on dangerous ground. For this question arises Is negro supremacy more to be dreaded when it elevates Democrats to power than when it elects Republican It it a pertinent question just now. For it is confessed by all that in Georgia and in Alabama the Democratic candi dates for governor have been rejected J by the white voters. But it is claimed j by Democrats that the solid vote of the negroes in each of those states was cast for the Democrats, and that by i Democratic governors were elected. Now if this is true, Georgia and Alabama today are under negro su premacy. They are administered by Democratic officials, who are objection able to the whites, and who are in of fice as creatures of the. negro vote. Our Bourbon friends in Louts:ana should condole with the luckless whites of Georgia and Alabama. Besides, which, if it be true, as the Democratic newspapers of tbe south often assure us, that the drift of the negro vote everywhere is toward De mocracy, then the one. practical method of rescuing Louisiana from the danger of negro supremacy is by a steadfast movement of all the whites in cupport of the Republican candi dates. Really and seriously, canno journalists so able as those who con duct the Picvyune, the Times Demo crat, and the Daily States of New Orleans discern that the ghost of ne gro supaemacy has stalked as long as it cant The cocks are crowing for daylight. The ghost must vanish. He no longer can cime alarm. THE THUS SPIRIT. The committee of prominent citi zens of Portland who visited the jetty at the mouth of the Columbia lass week expressed themselves favorably to Astoria as the proper seaport of OregOD. Among these were . several representative - business men of the metropolis, and Mr. H. W. Scott, the managing editor of . the Oregonian, may be mentioned in the list. In the published interview these men' ap proved tbe development of the natural resources of Astoria, and appeared to be in- harmony with the growth of other portions of the state. This is the proper feeling to be manifested, as tbo prosperity of the different rarts of the Inland Empire insures the growth of the metropolis. If this policy had bben purjued years ago Oregon would have a much larger population than she now has, and Portland would have nren more prosperous. Astoria ia the natural seaport of the state, and . tbe Columbia is the commercial outlet of tbe northwest. As soon as these facts are known, and there is unified action to aocomplibh these ends this part of the northwest will take a stride for ward that has been anxiously desired for many yeais. That harmony has not existed heretofore is apparent to any observer; but a desirable change has taken place in this regard, and it is to be expected that Oregon, with her varied resources, will take the po sition that nature designed she sbouid occupy. One part of a great common wealth cannot increase in wealch and business to the detriment of the other portions without eventually the policy resulting irjurious to all. This fact has become known, and the lesson taught by practical experience in the past will undoubtedly be beneficial in the futur HOME CONSUMPTION. The "change" inaugurated in 1802 has been felt in other ways than the depreciatioa cf wages and the re duction of the price of home products that come into competition with for eign ones. In speaking of this sub ject the Inter Ocean says that, while the free trad?rs are tearing down the protection defenses to let American products out into the markets of the world, as Mr. Wilscn puts it, tbe treasury statistics show that they have not only made it possible for the English manufacturers to share oui own market, but they have actually re duced that market. The great staples of the American agricultural products are wheat and corn. More than 00 per cent of these products are con sumed at home, but while the Demo crats hive been legislating for the 10 per cent which goes abroad they have reduce! the home consumption. Tne per capita consumption of wheat in this country, according to the treasury statistics, was 5 91 bushels in 1892, and 4 85 bushels in -1893. Here is a decrease of 1.06 bushels in one year; multiply the per capita de crease by the population, 67,500,000, and we have 71,550,000 less bushels of wheat consumed by our own people in the first year after the change from tho Republican to a Democratic ad ministration. . The per capita consumption of corn in 1892 was 30.33 bushels, and in 1S93 23.CG bushels. The decrease is C 57 bushels per capita, or 450.225,000 for the whole people. If we put a value of 50. cents a bushel on the wheat, and 45 cents on the corn, we have 35.7775,000 worth of wheat and $102,601,250 worth of corn taken from the home market cf American farmers by the lowering of wages in accordance with the Democratic policy of cheapness. The farmers of America have lost more than $228,000,000 from their home market by the attempt to cheapen the manufactured products of this country. The same effect has been felt in the two great staples im ported into this country. The treasury Btat'stics show that the per capital consumption of sugar was 63.5 pounds in 1892 and 63 4 in 1893. The re duction was 1 pound per. capita, or 6,750.000 pounds valued at 337,500. Tbe per capita consumption of conve was 9.63 pound? in 1892 and 8 25 in ioij. ine reauciion was i.oo . . mi , , flO pounds per capita, or 93,150,000 for the American people, .and this was valued at $23,27,500. Taking the two great domestic staples and the two gre-t imported staples of America and $263,901,250 worth of food product was taken from our American con sumption in one year after the free traders secured control of the govern ment. The statistics for 1894, when compiled, will no doubt make as bad f not worse, showing when compared wiih 1892. There has been less work a greater reduction in wages, and nec essarily more economy in living. Tbese treasury statistics furnished by a Democratic administration are proof that the Democratic tariff policy tendsto cheapen the whole life of the people. Followed to its legitimate conclusion it mean the European standard of living for wage-earners, and there are so many men in this country who know what the European standard of living is that there is no occasion to' discuss it. Mr. Wi'-son told his London ad mirers that tne democrats were breaking down the protective defenses in America to let them into this mar ket. He did not tell them that in doing that the Democrats were not only taking the market from our own producers, but were also decreasing the market itfelf. EDITORIAL NOTES. About 40,000 of tba women of Col orado have registered for the purpose of voting at the coming election. That does not look very much like a failure to accept the suffrage when it is placed within their reach. It will not be necessary for Senator Hill to resign his position to accept the governorship of New York. His Re publican opponent will be elected by a large majority, and Tammany will receive a severe rebuke from the people of .the state. Great vigor is being developed in every state on political matters, and Republicans have inaugurated a cam paign for protection to American in- dustrtfs. There will no doubt be a hot fight on this line, but a sweeping victory for Republicans is almost cer tain. Harper's Weekly, the Demo-Mug-ump organ, has arrived at the con clusion that of two evils confronting it, Morton is the least. Of Hill it say", "be is tne embodiment in His own person of all the bad tendencies in politics." Hill himself expresses it in just four words "I am a Democrat." In reference to the war between China and Japan there are conflicting reports in regard to the former desir ing foreign intervention to stop hos tilities. The celestial empire has been hipped in every battle; but, with her 300,000,000 of subjects she should not acknowledge defeat at this early date. It seems that she lacks grit, and quickly cries "enough" at the first re verse. The Japanese are spunky, and I uaugUMte war with 8 determinatioa to be victorious, and they are gener ally successful. The China-Japan war is causing some little interest among the govern ments of Europe. There are matters necessary to preserve the balance of power which are being carefully watched by wily diplomats. Russia must preserve her Asiatic boundaries, and England must guard her Indian empire There cannot be war in any part of the globe that tbese two pow ers do not keep a jealous eye on each other. It is getting to be usual in southern states that when a Democratic candi date plainly is defeated by the white vote he is reported as "saved by th colored counties." It is so in Georgia. Mr. Atkinson, candidate for governor, Ml short by some 60,000 of the usual Democratic vote in tbe white counties. One ojiyh: think this would have in jured his defeat. But no; the black counties did nobly. They voted al most solidly for the Democrat. That is to say, they were counted almost solidly for him. The health of the czar of Russia is the greatest concern of Europe, and every symptom is noted with the greatest interest. If he dies, it is ex pected that his successor would "let loose the days of war," and the peace of Europe would be rudely disturbed. The czar is a noble man, judged by bis actions to his family his subjects and tbe nations of Europe. Tbe cruellies perpetrated upon tne victims who have been sent to Siberia have been by the decree of his minis ters, and not at bis wish and dic tation. The express robbery at The Dalles last week has been the sensation of the state for the past few days. De tectives have been at work and the developments are . not made public and perhaps these may be very start ling. The manner in which this was accomplished was very improbable and almost impossible; but the occurrence happened and that is sufficient. Who ere the per petrators of the mischief are un known, and those who escaped with the specie still remains a mystery. Whether tbey are ever brought to justice or not the occurrence will be something from which may be drawn useful lessons. China has come to the conclusion that she will continue to war with Jap an, and the latter country has just begun to feel the importance of the contest. Japan hag pioflted by the advance ment of western civilization, and China has not. As a result of this tuition it has been fully de monstrated that Japan is superior to her opponent. the island empire has been successful so far, and will continue to be by the superiority of her armament and the discipline of her soldiers. If the war continues China will be subject to Japan, and the raedaeval civilization of the Alon golians will be blotted frem the -ma of Asia. The supreme court has rendered decision in the Eistern Oregon branch asylum case, and the injunction has been disolved on some technicality It ia much to be regretted that th constitutional-question of the validity of the location of a public institution outside of the capital city, or "seat of government, has not been reached in either the case of the soldiers horn at Roseburg or the branch asylum at Union, and this may cause consider able future annoyance. If a fair con struction of tbe constitution of tbe state of Oregon gives Salem a mouop oly of all institutions, and consequent ly tbe benefit of nearly all appropria tion of public money, it is time that tbe organic laws of this commonwealth were amended or tbe capital removed to some more convenient point.
