.SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16.1895 WHY IT SHOULD BE- IS It. DOLPH. The sttitnde of the bolters become - more censurable every day, for they are not only blocking legislation and defeating the expressed wishes of the people in the ohoice of United States - j senator, bat have not paid the least ' ' attention to petitions of their constit uents or consolidated their votes on any man to represent Oregon in con gress; Daring the campaign last June" the issue was fairly made be tween Dolph and anti-Dolph, and on ' every platform in the state Republican speakers were called upon to dt-fond the actions ol the senior senator. He : was assailed by Democratic and Pop ulist orators and papers.and particular emphasis was eiveu to hia position on .the money question. There never was a cinvaas cf the stats of Oregon in which such particular Strega was laid upon the approaching election of U. 8. senator. Voters were warned that a vote for the Republican ticket was a vote for the re-eleotion of Hon. J. N. Dolph to the United States senate.and every available objection to him was . made. Notwithstanding this, fact the Republicans carried the state by over twenty thousand majority, and the peoplit virtually said by (bat large plurality that they desired Mr. Dolpb to retain his position in congress. He was virtually elected 'to the senate by the popular tote of the electors, and it wag so considered until the silver craze rendered some legislators wild and made them forget every obligation to their constituents and to the party. In Eastern Oregon Senator Dolph was favored because he was an able champion of the Republican doctrine of protection,' and had supported measures . and secured their passage through the senate in the interest of the producer. He was instrumental in the forfeiture of the Wallula- Fortland. land grant, and be framed and introduced the just bill that be came a law. The Columbia river bad reoeived larger appropriations during tin time he was senator from Oregon thin ever before, and the government work at the Locks had been changed to the contract system. - Duribtz tbree . s 'anions be bad secured the passage of a bill through the senate for the con struction of a ship railway above this point to Celilo, carrying with them lib eral appropriations; hut twice these measures had been defeated in a Dem ocratic house. last- Year he was successful, and the preliminary survey - for a ship railway has been made, The title to the wagon road land grants, through bis efforts, has been settled by the passage of an act of congress. When the forfeited lands went back to the public domain it was by his ar duous endeavors that they were reduced to the minimum price of $1.25 an acre and an extension of time siven in which settlers could make the payments. In every instance he has proved himself a friend to the producer and farmer, and has done more for the state of Oregon than any other man who .ever repre sented hat Washington.- This sense- eta howl about Mr. Dolph being a corporation attorney, under the pay of Wall street and acting in the interest of Eoelish gold-loaners, comes from the: Populists' camp, and is used to cause dissension in Republican ranks and pave the way. for their success in 1896. His record for the twelve years he has been in the senate is well known, and it proves absolutely false every one f these groundless charges. 'Mr. Dplpb is undopbtedly the choice of 'the people for- United States sena tor, and has proved himself on public questions a statesman among states men. He has been the friend of the people, and an earnest advocate of an open river. . As a champion of the grand principles of. the Republican parly thfre is not his peer on the Pa citio coast, and in the next congress it will need its ablest defenders on the floors of congress. For these and o'her . reasons - )Qn. J. N. Dolpb should be re-elected to the position he has occupit-d with such unquestionable ability and integrity. TBE GOLD RESERVE. The harangues of Mlverites that the attempts of President Cleveland to save tbe credit of the nation by main taining sufficient gold In the treasury to pay any notes that may be presented in honest coin is done to favor Wail street capitalists, is demogogiein of the - worst kiud. A national pledge should be as sacred as one made by an in dividual, and the government has promised to redeem these notes in either gold or silver as tbe person may desire. Since the agitation of the sil ver question the demand for gold in payment of obligations baslarguly in creased, and this bas caused an ex: ra drain on the treasury. If these howl ing silverites are patriotic end honest they will attempt to keep down this demand on the treasury by ceasing to preach their financial fallacies, and doing all tbey can to re establish public confidence. The people are afraid the country wiil change to a silver basis, and are cashing every United States note in gold. Tbey are afraid of bank ruptcy, and are making a run on the back to cash their checks before repu diation is adopted. This fear his been created by wild theorists, who advocate impracticable notions of finance, which have proved destructive wherever tried. If the people were confident that the nation would be honest with its creditors the drain on the treasury would stop.and resort would net he had to every possible means to keep up the gold reserve. The commercial world demands a single standard, and that standard to be gold. If thn aecre-ary of the treasury were to refuse to pay gold when it was required It would be . notice to tbe world (bt toe United I c -i l. . T? oiaicj iciuaea iu pay ita ukuih. xjvcr jr foreigner holding our securities would demand payment, and our commercial relations would be hampered in a very disastrous tninner.f There is only one safe plan to follow in finance?, and that is the fours? that has been pur sued by RtpuMi'an administrations ever since toe war, and is now being followed by Mr. Cleveland. In the past it has been the means of estab lishing national credit and reviving the business of the country after the terrible stagnation following the late rebellion, and in the future it will again force trade into its former pros perous channels. FISH WHEELS. There has not been a session of th legislature for a number cf years that Astoria bus not attempted to have law passed abolishing fish wheels as means of catching salmon, and an ef fort J now. being made in this direc tion by the Clatsop delegation. Fish wheels are not ued except in eddiep, where there is a counter current, and where other means would not be profit able. They are not in operation ex cept at the Cascades and in the middle and upper Cotumbia. The Aston fiibermen have the first chance at tb run of salmon hefore they reach the upper waters of the river, and should not be iealous of the wheelmen who are. forced bs " satibfied with those which escape the meshes of their miles c gill-nets. It is a fact to (which all will assent that the salmon industry should be protected by legislation; bu the place where protection would be most effective is at tbe mouth of tbe river, where the stream blockaded every season by the nets of the Astoria fishermen, and myriads of fish are driven farther up the coast. Ia-this connection tbe bills introduced by Hons. W. W. 8 eiwer and T. R. Cmm deals with tbe danger to this in dustry. All the fish possible should be allowed to enter the stream and go to their spawning ground, and not be driven away by a wa.ll of nets at the entrance of the' Columbia. After tbe fi-th enter the stream they are legiti mate prey, and are the property "of those who demre to catch them, Wheels are not damaging to tbe run in' the least, or mors destructive to fish than tbe gill nets, and fraluion are forced to course up tbe stream over a hundred and fifty miles before tbey reach the brat of these, ibey are so constructed that small fish pass through the meshes and regain their native element, and only the larger and sale able ones are retained. It may be that the legislators are not properly informed on this subject, and they imagine that wheelmen at the Cascades andn the middle Columbia ruthlessly destroy the salmon that find their way up stream. Tbe fact is oanning fish has developed largely in this vicinity during the lost few years, and next season there will be two can neries in operation at Thn Dalles, When the run reaches here those who have managed to eccape the miles of nets at the mouth the wheels are lowered into tbe water, and are placed in eddies which the fish will naturally follow.. The revolving hopper or whatever it may be termed scoops up the larger fish, and the meshes in thn wire netting permit the smaller ones to pass through. This is not at all destructive of tbe run, and when it is fully understood will not be so consid ered. THE TBI LB 7 FOOT. Americans possess a mercurial tern perament almost f qual to the French or lrisb. The ra af'.er ''Trilby" the creation of Air. M inner in his cele brated book, bas extended over tbe continent, and the foot of the heroine has become a fashionable fad. The author of the book is an artist, and, in bis very interesting story," gave bis heroine perfect pedal extremities; but it is not expected that full atten tion should be given to the feet and the heart and brain neglected. It is a safe rale to follow to spend great care on tbe culture of the head and heart, and the feet . will take care of them selves. If the coming woman expects to do her part in the progress of the world, force of tuind and proper en ergy of the affections should be culti vated, and not too much time giviog to produce artistic curves in that por tion of the physique upon wbicb de pendence is placed to propel one over the mud and filth through which it may be necessary to pass. Tbe wives and mothera of tbe twentieth century should have large and cultured brains, affectionate and sympathetic hearts, and it will make little d ff 'rence whether they wear No. 1 or No. 6 shoes, or whether their feet have Gre cian or Trilby curvatures,or are shaped solidly like Gothic columns. We dislike allowing an issue of tbe Democrat go by without mentioning the fact that the present state legisla ture is a failure. It bas doae nothing, doesn't intend to do anything, and has not brains to do anything if it wanted to. This doesn't refer to several of the members, solid, capable men, who are kept from doing bytbing by the ra n around th m. Albany Democrat. It is to be explored . tbat tht Republican carried the state last June by a lare majority, and that 42 of tbe legisla tors are attempting to Carry out the wishes of the people by voting for Mr. Dolph for senator. Of course the Democrat, and other paper of the name political predilections, earnestly wish-thin was other wioe. They would rather see any mn returned from Oregon than Senator Dolph, tor in the senate ho has proved himself an able ohampton of Republican principles. As regards bnins" we have nevpr considered tie editor of tbe Democrat a competent judge. THU BUSINESS OUTLOOK. The bond sale which has just bpen announced by thn president is the most important development of the business situation for the week, says the St. Louis Globe Democrat. Tm or twelve days ago, when the raids on the treasury sent the gold fund down to about 842,000,000, there was a finan cial szare in the bnsiness center", and a return of the panic times of 1S93 waB for a few days look' d fur. A change for the better r.jc .rn'd, how ever, when the assurances of European bankers that they would buy bonds were made known to the public. Then there was a rally in the stock market, and a better feeling spread through business circles. Everybody saw that the country's credit remained good in spite of the 'fiuancial blunders and imbecilities of a-ngres. The govern ment's intention to deal honestly wkh its creditors was recognized, and this opened to it tbe money markets of the world. Now that the bond sale has been ar ranged a further brightening of the bu. lines 3 sky is assured. The treas ury peril has been averted, and as this has been the chief disturbing factor in the situations further improvement in tnde may reasonably be looked for soon. As measured by ratlrod earn ings, the. conditions are favorable. The in;reese in revenues among the roads catering in Sr. Louts is especially large and gratifying. Bank clearances in Sr. Louis and other great business c ;nters tell the same story of im proved trade Not only . is there an excess in both fields over tbe exhibit bf twelve months ago, but there is an increase above that of the fall and early winter months. Reports from soma of tbe railroads passing through the territory tributary to this city show earnings closely approaching those of the same date before the panic period. "Bradstreet'a" current business news department, which covers tbe whole couutry, continues to snow more resumption than suspensions of work. Strikes and lockouts are utHer way in various places, but they apparently do not far, if at al', exceed the record of norma) seasons. Disturbances of this sort, unhapp'ly, are never altogether absent. On the whole, however, the profcpects for an early re turn of business prosperity are bright. The relief societies in the different cities find far less want than they did last wintsr. There has been a large falling off, as compared vith a year ago, in the number of the unem ployed. In S'. Louis the change in this direction is particularly striking. There is a fair degree cf activity here in the leading industries. Merchants, bankers, manufacturers and '.us ness men of all classes in this city say that the improvement ii conditions since last winter bag been marked, and they are takieg a cheerful view of the sit nation. EDITORIAL NOTES. Wei-Hai-Wei is now in the bands of the Japanese, and the Chinese fleet is reported wiped out ' of existence, Japan bas conducted the war in a very effective manner, and has been bene fited considerably by adopting western civilization. The new charter bill for Portland passed the senate yesterday, and will meet with no great opposition in the house. It will reduce the expenses of the city government several thousand dollars, and economy is a cardinal vir tue these days. Two telephone systems will be in operation in this city very soon, and communication by this means should be had with towns in the interior of the county. Then, if street cars were added to the enterprise The Dallei might tie expected to be on the bipb road of advancement. According to the hi ennial report for thn year ending 1894, of the ad jutant general of the Oregon .National Guard, thn least expensive to the state bas been the Third rrgiment in 'East ern Oregon. The first regiment roat the state during the two years $25, 237.45, -hecond 11,898 83 and tbe Third 7,934 71, or less than one-third ef the expenses of the First. Our regiment- is not, perhaps, as well quipped as the others; but for actual services in the fie d would be equally efficient. Miss Annie Euecker, tbe only woman saved on the Elbe, has received a command to visit the queen at her royal residence at the lwle of Wight. This may mean something wbijh will he of a pecunary benefit to the young lady, or it m ly end in her inj -sty congratulating her on her escape and expressing sympathy for the other un fortunate passengers. Miss Buecker will have the; privilege to cszi on royalty; but this will not clothe or feed her or till her depleted purse. An amendment to tbe state consti tution of Washington, voted on and ratified at the last election, has gone into effVot by the proclamation of Gov ernor McGraw. It amends section 5 of article 16 so as to read: ' "Noue ot the permanent school fuoda of this state shall ever be loaned to private persons or corporations, but it may b. invested in national, state, coun'v. municipal or school district . bonds." It would be well if Oregon had such a law. The funds would bs much &h(t than now, and if school dis rict bond were piven the preference it. would help out d strcts in their financial affriira. Persons who arrived froai.S ilni to day 84V the supporters of Mr. Dolph were never as firm during the contest as now. lhey are hopeful of yietory, and in the racks of the bolters there are figus of weakness. An election may be expected, for some of those opposing tbe caucus nominee say the" will not return to their constituents without a senator is chosen, even if to accomplish it they will be forced to vote for Mr. Dolph. . Backed by the people, confident in the integrity and anility of the neo'or-senntor, his sup porters ar hrm in the position thej have taken, and are satisfied tbey ar acting for the bestinterests of the party and of tbe state. . Tbe president has sent another mes sage toecngress, wherein he states that he has made arrangements by which' a little less then $G2.000 000 in bonds will be isKued bearing 4 per cent in terest, and by this a sum slightly in excess of 605,000,000 in gold will be realized. This will increase the amount in the treasury to a little over $100,000,000. The privilege is re served to the government to substitute at par within ten days from date for these bonds others payable in gold snd only bearing 3 per cent interest. If congress should adopt the iattpr plan it wouM save to tbe country 816,174, 770 in 30 years, the dare of the ma turity of the coin bonds. Will con gress have sufficient financial sense to atl'jpt the latter iilai ? One man who has just returned from Salem has learned while there that Mr. Dolph is an enemy of an open river, and is in favor of corporations. This he says, is the reaon of the oppo to bis election. B "-h' For the past twelve years Mr. Dolpb has been in the senate, and during that time larg er appropriations have b-en received for the improvement of the Columbia river than ever before, the Wallula Portland land grant has been forfeited to the government and the title to the military wagon road grants has been definitely seultd. M . Dolph's record on public q'ie3tions is open for inspec tion, and tbe bolters at Salem should study 'this carefully before making their wi'd charges against the senator. The S.n Francisco Examiner prints a story today that Admiral Beardslee bas taken possession of Pearl harbor and declared a protectorate over the S-indwich islands. This is not gener ally credited, and may be nothing hut a sensational rumor. ' President Dole has proved himself equal to any emergency, and the little rebellion was soon quelled by his promptness. There can be no necessity for a protectorate over these islands, except tbe United S'ates intends to annex them whether tbe people desire it or not. Life and property appear to be safe, and the infant republic does not desire to be taken under tbe wing of this country to be kept out of the cold or wet. Secretary Gresham is about to inter fere on behalf of the Americans who hive been sentenced ti the extreme penal'y of the law for complicity in the Hawaiian revolution, and who were found guilty by a military tri bunal. The protection of citizens is admirable in any government; but those owing allegiance to a foreign country should be very careful bow they behave themselves in the land of their residence for tbey must be amena ble to law. If tbe Americans engaged in the revolution have been found guilty under tbe laws of the new re public of a capital crime they must suff-r '.he consequence. In the Sand wich islands, or any other country, Americans should enjoy no greater immunity than the sutjucts of other natioDs. The Yamhill Reporter says: But two weeks more remain of the Ifgis lative session. Little ef constqu'ence has been accomplished, and perhaps there would not be much to regret on that account if the legislature should adj iurn tomorrow. But the danger is tbat the usual amount of legislation will be ru-hed through during the ex piring dvs, without proper considera tion. The ' senatorial souaiible ha rumed the pro-peci of any very valu ablu legiulation lhere is no enour- aeinff rospp t of getting that arnica bly settled either. The factious min ority have shown utter inability to agree upon a candidate of their own, and they refuse to support a man who represents the views of the majority, Whether they will keep up the.ir op position to the extent of denying the state representation in the United States senate, a few more days will determine. In that event it wonld be another case of biting off the nose to spite the face. TELEGRAPHIC HEWS. Charges Asaiuec JHBrio.
