They claimed that after fo ninny years of un interrupted control, corruption was rife an 1 the government was being plun dered In every detriment. There was no thought of tariff reform then, and so little did the people realize the enorm ous burden of the robber tariff resting upon them, thati they were perfectly contented and supiemely unconscious of their downtrodden and plutocraey-rld-len condition. Tho slogan of the cam paign was "Turn the Rascals Out," and give us a f Inince to clean the "Augean Htnbles." The fraud was successful. The plain common eople, as Lincoln used to call them, were not proof ugulimt a pretext so plausible; they arose In their might and the rascals were turned out. Tho books were hand ed over. They were examined, re examined, and then examined again, All that human Ingenuity could devise, aid- ed by the moss prejudiced ana unprin- J clpled of experts, was unequal to find ing a greater discrepancy than four i. i . i,..i, i . ...o, ...... , prloe for li e purpose of substitution. Do the time the last rascal departed from J not accept his Must as lined" plea, in ... . , ...... . .... ...... i slst uixni having the (,''nuln, Alleoek's " jr r,Huu..ci. , mi- mini- sands of millions disbursed during the i , i ... , , ' war iierlod, and even this paralysing ! discovery was offset by tho finding of j four pennies under a pile of specie bogs in one of the vault, a few days afterward. This sham having been thus exposed, It beeama necessary to Invent some new excuse for holding on t power. And then It was that the great Groer proved himself equal to the emergency. Across his noble mind, like an lusiinttlon, for the first time Hashed the thought of Uie woes and wrongs of hN fellow-eountrymjn under the protec tive tariff system. He prepared and luffnehed his famous epistle to the pub lic, called. message to oongrvse. In which he notified the people of t'he utter wretchedness of their condition. The story Of how he was immediately hailed and worahlied as the saviour of his party, and with what avidity they el ted and hastened to the country with this now gospel, nerd not be repeated. Suffice It to say It was harder to de ceive tho people this second time than It was the first. It required over six long years of persistent exhorting and pleading to bring the people to a, realiz ing sense of their condition. But tho gamo finally succeeded. The people struck down one of the wisest and most patriotic administrations in the coun try's history, and tbo great and good Grover returned with his myrmidons to tho flesh-pots again. And now Demo cratic history Is repeated in another conviction for false and fradulent pre tenses. Where now are their pledges and frothy boastings of the doctrine of tariff reform. According to the esti mates of that artful dodger, Senator Daniel W. Voorhees, submitted to the senate on Tueslay estimates based on the experience under the McKinley tariff a most unreliable comparison, be cause figured upon a principle discour aging imports, while the Wilson bill is supposed to have the contrary purpose It is shown that the burdens of the peo pie are to be relieved by adding $28, 000,000 to their sugar bills. When It Is considered that the per capita saving of duties under the Wilson bill, as it came from the house, was estimated by this same Voorhees at only $1.12, and that the nearly 400 senate amendments are for the most part Increases over the rate fixed by the house bill, It can be readily seen how entirely false to their promises and inconsistent with thc-lr professions the Democrats have been. Leaving out the incalculable ruin wrought to the Industries of the coun try, and adding simply the . Interest charge on the $50,000,000 Increase In the public debt, It Is plain that the Demo crats have actually increased the public burdens by the result of direct legis lation. It Is useless to sing the song of tariff reform any longer, and It Is In order for them to devise some new fraud with which to trick and deceive the people. Tho curiosity to know what this may be and when It will be sprung, Is the only Interest now felt in the Democratic party as an organization. Apropos of the bill now pending be fore congress to establish a naval train ing station on the Pacific Coast, what does the chamber of commerce now think of The Astr.iian's suggestion that Secretary Herbert be Invited to Astoria to take a look at her harbor? He is to be met at Tacoma by the Munzanlta, and could Just as well return to Port land by way of the Columbia as noU The waste of Just such little opportuni ties as this constitutes one of the most serious drawbacks to Astorlu's progress and growth. Republicans cannot afford to make any compromises or trades of any kind In tho approaching election. The situ ation Is critical. None but Republicans should be elected to any county or state office. The candidates for the leglsla tuiv, especially, can and miiHt be elect ed. A dispatch was recalved !n Astoria yesterday, signifying that Manager Dickinson wiih exiected to meet the great rallrt ad contractor, Mr. Deremn, at Cheyenne today, for the purpose of conferring with him on the subject of constructing the road to Astoria. Representatives of New Yolk and Chicago labor organizations are now at Mercedes, Cal., examining lands in the Sun Joaquin valley, with a view of lo cating a colony In that vicinity.

It must be admitted that the last at tempt at a senatorial revision of the bill passed by the house Is a dismal and melancholy disappointment. .Cincinnati Enqulrv (Dem ). The defeat of this measure, which is the result of a coalition between pluto crats and communists. Is a consumma tion devoutly to be wished. St. Louis Globe-Democrat, The Democrats are making a great show of economy by cutting down the appropriations; but the fact remains that the sum of $50,000,000 has been borrowed to pay curret expenses. "The Democratic Club" of New York city, at lus late meeting, declareU that "the Democrats at Washington had made fools of themselves." But people who read had discovered that fact long ago. Belfast (Ireland) News. While protection has enriched nil classes in the United States, free trade has Impoverished all chwses In the United Kingdom, paralyzing agricul ture and depressing manufacturers." Kansas City Journal. If tho country could choose between the' McKinley law and the Wilson bill today the former would be sustained by a majority which would make the Dem ocratlc victory of 1892 look utterly In significant. New York Recorder. Since Grover Cleveland became presi dent and Walter Q. Gresham secretary of state the European monarchies ap pear to think that the United States has no rights In either the Atlantic or the Paclfio which they are obliged to re- 8OPt. Minneapolis Tribune. In Justice to the Democratic party let It not be forgotten that It Is "Repub lican protection" that Is denounced In t'he Chicago platform as fraud and rob bery. Nothing Is said about Democratic protection to trusts, combines, Importers and foreign manufacturers. Charleston News and Courier (Dem.). Brave Democrats, able Democrats, ag gressive Democrats! They Intend "to ultimately pass the bill. It would all be very amusing if it did not afford so shameful a commentary upon tho cowardice of the Demueratlo sen ate. Boston Journal. It Is not pleasant news to good Amer icans that because of lack of orders the great Roach ship yard on the Delaware is about It close Its gates for the flint time In Its history. What Is more, It congress passes a free ship bill the gates, in all probability, will never be reopened. An advertisement In the Weekly Pa triot, Prince Edward's Island, reads: As the Democratic party In the States are taking the McKinley duties off our agricultural products, and next sum mer farming will be more profitable than heretofore, the subscriber would hereby intimate that she Is about to sell her fine farm. St. Louis Post Dispatch (Dem.). The "bunco game" which the gang of Democratlo "confidence" men In the (enate have been playing on their parly associates and the country is nearly finished. The new amendments to the Wilson-Voorhees bill are practically all In the Interest of the plutocratic allies of the so-called conservatives. ' . Pittsburg Dispatch. Ueiiator Hoar's speech Indicates that he Is not over much pleased with the latest uttempts to patch up a tariff bill. His description of the compromise "born of an unnatural union between two hatreds, that of section against sec. tlon, and that of class a-niinst class" Is one of the most vigorous raps yet ad ministered U the tinkers. Boston Post, (Dem.V The loss of confidence In the senate is produced not only through Its dawdling over lmiHjrtant business, but through its weak concessions and tinkering of the tariff bill. The senate has not on'.y shown Its Inability to act with decision and wisdom; It has shown Its inc: paclty to hold Itself steady against wrong Influences whlln awaiting ac tion. New York Sun (Dem.). When Democrats look back calmly nnd dispassionately. If they ever can so l.mk back, upon this amaxlng chapter of perfidious leadership and llly-llvered councils, what will strike them first In the dismal perspective Is the fact that the party In congress has been system- attlcally deprived of any opportunity to try to redeem the simple and definite pledge of the Chicago platform. London (England) Dally News. Our New York correspondent tele graphs a. cheering account f the pros pects of the tariff bill. He shows that. In the opinion of the best Judges, the opposition to the bill In Uie senate wtll melt away, and by July 1, at latest, the measure will become law, and substan tially in the forni In which It K-ft the hou of representatives. Louisville Courier-Journal (Dem.). The result Is weary months wasted to the business world and to the party, and. after It all. Instead of a bill re deeming the pledges they were com missioned to reedm a mongrel piebald of patches and pusillanimity, a grotesque hodgepodge of pretense and pettifog ging, & nondescript abort Kv of Incom petency, selfishness, cowardice and treachery.
