The present- persecution or the Jews in Russia anil Germany seem9 to Je a continuation of the old robber cry of the middle ages which virtually said. to ..the .Israel-, ite, "Yo,ur money or your life." It seems hardly possible that this is the nineteenth century, to read accounts of the nlurder of men. the outrage of women and the slaughter of children, because these people see fit to worship God in their own way and as they were taught to believe is in ac cordance with a solemn covenant made with God four thousand years ago. It is a sliame that any where on the globe should be pre sented such spirit ol religious in tolerance as is daily shown in those districts across the sea where stupidity, brutality, covctousness, lust and murder combine to wreak ruin upon unotTending and upright members of society. Not the least shameful of these facts is the indifference of the Russian govern ment. It shows in some places an apathy, and in others an avowed intention to aid the persecutors of those who profess the sublime faith of Judaism. In the abstract, the descendant of Abraham cannot be subdued nor destroyed, Ho is smart, shrewd, sagacious and up with the times. He is always abreast of his competitors in business; he is rarely found in prisons or alms houses, and in any department of trade that he enters he leads. He shows a wonderful adaptability for our modern civilization, and, in general it can be said that -whatever helps civilization along helps him along too. How few Jewish paupers there are: they take care of their own, earn their own.living; pay their debts, ae always liberal and desirous of im provement, and are in every re spect sober, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens. Erom every part of the United States comes a cry of protest against tlie barbarity now being enacted in Southeastern Europe. Optimistic. The struggles of ambitious men for places and power have at all times been the cause of most of the troubles which have afflicted the world. The plots and counter - plots of our American chieftains cause a perpetual tutnuit; we arc in a condition of chronic unrest. Each is trying to tear down the reputation which may have heon established by the other, and each is compelled to appeal to the peo ple for a verdict. It is the first impression of many that the ever lasting political turmoil is detri mental to the country, but the fact appears that it is beneficial. Cor ruption would become "firmly es tablished, and would perpetuate itself were it not for the exposures that commonly come from motives that aro far from praiseworthy. The great whisky frauds would not have been unearthed, had it not been for the efforts of men whose main "purpose was to prove the inefficiency of President Grant. Credit-Mobilier would not have beeomo a common scandal had there not been men in public station who were anxious to break down others who were looked upon as rivals. The jobbery which has fastened itself like a parasite upon the Department of State, would not have been exposed had it not been for the great antipathy that some men have for Blaine. It is resulting like many other investi tions, and mainly smirching the .friends of thoso who raised the alarm. But the fact remains the same that some very - corrupt schemes have been brought to light, and their consummation frus trated. If hated political antago nists can bo injured, no secrets aro so well guarded that they will not be dragged into the light. The quarreling 'and detraction are cer- tainly evils, but they are n'ttcnuVd with compensating benefits. It is better for the country that there should be this activity. It tends to familiarize pecpla with public affairs and the mor-e intelligently to discharge, their political duties. Such a stimulus is needed to keep awake public attention, to prevent unconditional abandonment of the higher interests of the. common wealth to the. few who might take care of them. If we did not have great rival parties", and men in each competing for the leadership, I such a thing as popular liberty would soon become unknown. It is a matter of historic record, and us history has been defined to be 'precept teaching by example," the precept and precedence in this instance is good to follow and ob serve. Another Garfield Honuincnt. Postjiastee-Geneeal Howp ;.. made an appeal to all postnia-:si's throughout the country to sub scribe toward the Garfield monu ment to be built at Washington." He talks as though he expected (.them to come right up to the Cap tain's office and settle, the sums paid, of course, are expected to be in proportion to their respective salaries. Every Government offi cial knows what this appeal means, rathorahan be turued out of oflire or degraded in the estimation of his superiors, most of them will send in their subscriptions and some make it uo hv stealing five times as much from Uncle Samuel. But few postmasters in the United States are overpaid, and a large majority of them, and of Govern ment officers generally, require every dollar they receive as offi cials for their support. When this is trenched upon by contributions to the political "machine," building monuments, or other purposes they must suffer or do something else. This Garfield monument business is being run into the ground. Un til that unsightly pile of stone and mortar, known as "The Washing ton Monument," be completed, these appeals for different monu ments to GarGeld ,should be more concentrated. . The inonoy raised on this coast for a Garfield luotiu, ment at San Francisco, could be more fittingly put into a Gar field Soldiers' Home, where if would not only honor the dead but be of priceless benefit to the poor, homeless, broken-down vet erans uf the war. And there is no doubt vbut that, could hf be consulted in the spirit laud, the dead President would say Anion to the proposition. - Tim Insane Asylum. Cojijientin'g upon the proposed change from a private to a public institution of the State Insane Asylum, the Staudard pays: "Every sossion of tho Legislature there is a gang about it fur the petty offices that body has to give away, and measures aro earned through on promises of position. We know that there is already strife among certain physicians to get the position of. superintend ent, .and when the Legislature meets we shall expect every one incompetent to get a practice on his merits, about the Legislature for a position in the asylum. Our correspondent will find a stronger lobby at Salem next Fall than has ever been there under tho contract system. Besides, lie will find that all kinds of combinations will be made by those who want positions, supply contracts, etc., which will be a disgrace to our state. This will be repeated every time a door keep or any other position is to bo filled. "We hope our fears may not bo realized, but from what we can see at this early date, we ' have reason to apprehend tho people of Oregon will regret the day they made the asylum a state institu tion." Oscae Wilde says if tho news papers don't quit malting fun of him be'll never come lo America again, so Iiq won't. Let those nbtwjoke who never joked before, and those who always joked, now joke the more. Aqythimj to get him to fulfill bis threat. 3JAKK5EI.- In this .fit v, Ki'l). 'JiM, !y Ilt-v..). Par sons.
