Wisdom Extraordinary.
The following very luminous edi—
torial graced the pages of the Call
last evening: “The recognition of
both parties in the distribution of
government patronage is precisely
what the reformers have been asking
for, and it is in accordance with a
policy that. tiecretary Endicott adopt—
ed more than two years ago in deal
ing with the extensive patronage of
the various branches of the war de~
We read it over several times and
felt refreshed. We were not able to
fathom its depths, however, for its
wisdom was too deep for us. Who
are the “Reformers” who have been
asking for the "recognition of both
political parties in the distribution
lof government patronage?” Surely
itho Call is not among the number,
‘for‘we remember how, just a few
1 weeks ago. ithowled itself hoarse be
;cause Ned Brown was copying the

Ever Cleveland, for the only way he
Ihas recognized both parties was to
turn out all the republicans and turn
in all the democrats. That is doubt
less the recognition of both political
parties that suits the Call.
‘ This, howwer, was the plea of the
mngwnmp papers four years ago.
Possibly our mugwump friend, the
Call. has decided to raise the old cry
so as to get some plea for an ap
pointment by President Harrison
next season. It would be so bad
if the n-furm administration had
‘onlg rz-nu-mbered its pledges to said
‘mllnguups and have given a~ few of
ltheiu cilia-S, but it did not, and so
the party of rr-form can hardly be
credited with a sincere desire to ad~
[ vance that idea.

By reference to another column
the coroner’s verdict on the death of
Davenport can be seen. The docu
mentisa manly one and lays the
blame of the affair partly where it
belongs. The man was not really
responsible for his own death. for he
was too drunk-to take care of him~
self at the time. His companions
were not fully to blame either, for;
they were too drunk to take care of
themselves—wt anybody else. Now
all these men were responsible for
being drunk. They deliberately put
themselves into such a condition
that they could not take care of
themselves. But were they wholly
to blame for this? Is it not unlaw
ful to sell whiskey to intoxicated
men? Is it not unlawful toallow
drunken. quarreling men on the
streets? Is the police of Port Town
send wholly lilanmlees in this afi'air?
’l‘hepmof, conclusively, is that a
quarrel had occurrml on the dock.
Nuwwlu-re was the police? Why
was not these men, who Were not ca

Xlztil the [)I)>llil)l] of the Democrats
and Republicans with regard to these
status is very ditferent. The Repub—
licans can win without New York
and the Denmeruts cannot.
This. is. the way the matter stands.
It requires 201 electoral votes to
o-lrct. Of these Cleveland may he

will then need Indiana, with her 15
vutes, or New Jersey with 9 and
Uninecticnt \xith 6, which would
gii‘e him 201. mm 3to spare. But
unless he can carry New York, he
can have the united vote of Indiana.
New Jersey and Connecticut without
doing him any good; for their aggre
gate vote added to the vote of the
solid South makes only 183, which is
18 short. , ~ > _
The Republicans, on the other
hand, can count with confidence on
every Northern state, oxcnpt the four

Is the Duty Added to the Cost?
So the duty on blankets is a “tax.”
It is nothing of the kind, Mr. Presb
dent. A pair of five pound blankets
were recently imported at the lowest
possible cost. The statement of the
cost, duty aid, is as fullows: Cost
in Englanfflt wholesale. $4.65; duty,
$4.25; customs fees, 65 cents; total,
$9.35. If the theory is true. these
blankets ought to sell for $9.35 a
pair, but us a matter of fact Ameri
can blankets of precisely the same
weight and quality were selling at
that time for $53.20. What becomes
of the theory that the duty is added
to the cost?
A Triumphant March-
John B. Allen’s tour through the
territory resembles a. triumphant
march. Everywhere he is received
with the greatest enthusiasm. and
his splendid speeches win him votes
at every town. The Democratic
leaders are alarmed, for they have
never before had an opponent. whose
armor was so near invincible.
Representative McKinney of New
Hampshire evidently thought there
was no hereafter for the democratic
party or he would not have spoken
so freely on the subject at free trade
as he did on May 4th last. He said:
Give us a free and open market
with the world, break down the bar
riers that a false system has built
around us, go back once more to the
principles of true Democracy. As an
abstract question of right _who is
there that dares to say. With his hand

Both conditions are unnatural.

two old fashioned standard remedies
handed down from our ancestors, and
now exclusively put forth under the
strongest guarantees of purity and efli

plentifully used as the fall and winter

be lenient, and would let him ofl'with

ibly of 1883 were placed so near Mr.
Cleveland that if he has not the mon—
ey he can get it at any time—if I can
not prove that, then I am not the
man profess to be.”
In an interview with a, New York
Sun reporter. after Cleveland had
pocketed the bill for the annexation
of North Idaho to this Territory, Mr.
Charles S. Voorhees said:
“I am firmly of the opinion that
some personal consideration cr oth
er governed his action. The facts
are such as to almost preclude any
other supposition.”
After describing how Cleveland
shut the door in his face and ignored
his letters, Voorhees said:
"I do not hesitate to assert that,
in my judgment, is more personal
administration than Mr. Cleveland’s
never existed in this country. His
claim that in all he does he disre
gards his own personal feelings, and
is actuated solely by considerations
growing out of that ‘publie trust,’ is
so at variance with the facts, that
the marvel is that he continues his
attempt to impose it upon the put»
After telling how Cleveland ap~
pointed the son of Henry Ward
Beecher collector at Port Townsend,
how the senate refused to confirm
him, and how Cleveland then ap
pointed Beecher a special agent in
charge of revenue matters on Puget
Sound, Voorhees said:
"The most. unreasoning admirers
0! Mr. Cleveland will be at a loss to
find in this evidence of his peculiar
methods any application whatever
of the idea that ‘public ofice is a
public trust’; in this case he simply
treated this very importango‘public
post as pertaining to his g s and
chattles to be disposed of in settle
ment of his ante-election debts.”
Now this same Voorhees is cavort
ing around this territory seeking a
third term and bellowing as only he
fandbellow—praisea of Grover Cleve
an .
After declaring that the President
was bribed to reveal. the annexa—
tion of North fiaho, that he used
public ofiice to pay private debts,
and that bein guilty of false pre

not had enough of such fellows!—
The tie industry has grown toenor
mous propo-tions in the timber regions
in the Northwest.and with the steady
increase in the mileage of the railrorde
of the country, is not likely to diminish
in exam The consumption of wooden
ties for new trackage and for replace—
ments is something extrnurdinary. and
thus far no substitute has been found
which promises to take tne place of the
best quality of wooden the. But com
paratively little headway has yet been
made in the method of getting ties out.
Now and then the sawed tie is encoun—
tered, but the greater part of all the
ties which go into the construction of
our railways are cut as they were out
years ago. and the sides hewn so as to
efl'ord the desired face, with an axe.
This rrquiree skill upon the part of the
woodoman, but even at the hands of the
most dett woodsxnau is a slow and tedi—
ous process. when compared with the
rapi lity with which timbers for every
other purposes are turned out. Once the
tie is cut and made marketable. it is
hauled to the nearest railroad track and
piled up, to be shipped out to rail. In
timber region- where streams are not
available this is probably the cheapest
and most expeditious method of manu
facture but a great many ties are floated
'dnwn qugiog streams to the annoyance
and disgust at the loggers, and with
more or lese loss to the makers. Theta
is now in use in some of the saw mills a
piece of machinery which ought to be a
boon to the tie makers. Primarily it
was made to accelerate and economize
lumber making where the logs run
small, but everylmdy who has ever seen
one of the machines must have been
struck with its adaptability to tie
making. Reference is made to what is
known as the Lynch siding machine.
It consists of lwu revolving wheels
faced with [min-n. which drezs the side
of the log rapidly and smoothly. Cum
pnratively little power is required and
little help to operate it. The logs need
to be got to n mill, and a siding machine
and a cut off saw would be sufficient to
do the rest. In this way a vast amount
of hand labor Would nit-Jonbtedly be
saved. and the cost of ties materially
