If anything had been needed to con vii.ee Incredulous man of woman's Ineffa ble superiority, the Woman'H Bible Is cal culated to do so. If the forthcoming sections are equul to the present lesue of the Pentateuch, which Is now before us in all the richness of Its erudition and did ion and the calmness of Its logic, the complete work will be a wonder and a Joy. As an expression of naive femi ninity alone, It Is 'calculated to figure as a unique addition to literature. But as an argument It is a colossal vindication. The alleged tyrant has long ago given up protesting In a voice weakened by Iteration and drowned by the strident shrieks of the oppressed, that he ac knowledged her superiority. He has grown used to being branded as a tearer down of female rights and has learned to balance himself with uneasy compla cence upon the tottering throne to which his victims have raised him, while they reveled in their wrongs. But the time has come for him to make a su preme effort to be heard and to Insist on granting to- woman the last stronghold of his prerogative the right to be su premely, surpassingly funny. The Woman's Bible is compiled of all passages of Scripture which contain any reference whatever to the fomale, gen eral or Individual, and Includes, as In vidious distinctions, most references to men, followed by the natural and logical query, "why not women?" To each of these plumages Is appended learned com ment from the pens of the "distinguished women" who have been appointed to the holy task. Among the members of the committee are a few Hebrew and Greek scholars whose services have doubtless been Invaluable, but for the most part the commentaries seem to be based main ly on the personal views of the wflter, which of course furnish a more unassail able foundation than any other conceiva ble one. They begin their "higher criti cism" with a bold demand for recognition In the Trinity. It Is a doctrine which has been so variously "explained" that the feminine version of Us significance Is at least entitled to a hearing. ' They also announce at the start that their reason lias repudiated the divine authority of the Bible; yet, as moHt men and women are too unintelligent to have arrived at this stage, they consider It worth while to show the falsity and Injustice of Its attitude to women. The first of the two writers In Genesis seems to bo tho only Biblical author who deserves commenda tlon at their hands lie represents man and woman as a simultaneous creation and says nothing about the "dominion of man. Any later concessions to the woman, as In the fourth commandment, for example, are hailed with sarcastic surprise, deadly and crushing In the ex treme. - As for the rib story, It Is scorn fully yet gravely dismissed as a "petty surgical operation." To give anything llko an exhaustive re view of this Important, not to say mo mentous, work, would require time and space beyond the limits of any mere newspaper. Yet there are passages In it which cry out for quotations, as, for ex ample, the following, apropos of the Im mediate descendants of Adam: "Inter marriage with the descendants of Cnln have corrupted the progeny, perplexed the Creator and precipitated the flood. AVc are told that, in the matter of the temptation, the "conduct of Eve was, from the beginning to the end, so superior to that of Adam." And again: "It takes six verses to describe tho 'fall' of woman; the fall of man is contemptu ously dismissed In a line and a half," Could anything be more conclusive of tho pre-eminence given to woman In the Wide, even were It not Just the contrary that the dear ladles are endeavoring to prove? Again, apropos of the taking of the women's Jewels for the making of the gulden calf, we are reminded that "It was Just so In the American Devolution in 1TT, the first delicacy the men threw overboard in Boston harbor wns the tea woman's favorite beverage. The tobacco and whKky, though heavily tax.'d, they clung to with the tenacity of the dovll '''" Ho they did, the horrid things. Tn ciownlng achievement of this re l.i.r'r.ji.le production, however.

It has bi cn the boast of this man oves and over n gain that ho was able to "work" Union town any way he wantd to. This Is not oniy an untruth, but a deliberate insult to tho common sense and independence of one of the most enlightened and honor able sections of the community. THE TRUE SITUATION. It has been said that liars need short memories. The men who Insist that It would be a crime to disturb business now by any tariff agitation who are they? Precisely the same men who persisted In disturbing business, even In .the utmost prostration after the panic of Di93, with a tariff revision which lasted a whole year. The same men, aiso, who furious ly denounced the senate bill as a surren der of their principles and hopes, a be trayal of public Interests, a sale to mo nopolies, the product of corrupt bargains, a measure of "perfidy and dishonor," and then passed it. But now they declare (hat it must stand untouched, with all Its special favors, the, fruit of criminal bargains, becu-je any agitation for a change would disturb business. These men started with a glaring untruth when they asserted In 1893 that the prostration was caused by the silver act, and not by the threat of free trade. It has led them Into the amazing absurdity of claiming that the country has been rendered more yjrosperous that ever by an Infamous bar gain with monopolies and betrayal of the form which they called necessary to public prosperity. This notion that any and every change of duties must -cause depression is not merely disproved by experience, but is on Its face a glaring absurdity. When ad vance of duties is proposed, It Is for the purpose of(curIng existing evils, checking excessive foreign competition, adding new encouragement to domestic production Every buyer reasons that the Immediate effect of higher duties will be to advance prices to some extent, until the establish ment of new works has Increased the home supply of the product. In conse quence every buyer is tempted to pur-. chase promptly and to the full extent of his wants, for the change, If effected, can do him no harm, and he is anxious to have as large a stock of cheap goods on hand as he can In case of any rise, Manufacturers also take time by the foie lock and lay In stocks of material, and push their works even In advance of or ders because the better prices, if secured, will give some profit on an output which might at existing conditions yield none, Thus there Is always a more business and a hopeful condition of industry when the object of pending legislation Is to af ford greater defense and encouragement to home production. The necessity of a larger revenue will 'compel Republicans to consider In what direction duties may be advanced. They will not be deterred In the least by the Democratic untruth that any change In that direction must check business. Many people think that we spend enoueh money or its equivalent on our roads to make them as good as those of any other country. That Is correct, but the trouble Is we don't spend it In the right way. Our labor la misdirected. At some season of the year, when farm work Is less pressing than usual, the farmer "works out" his road tax. Gen erally it Is 'about the worst time of the year for the roads; but that doesn't mat ter. He takes his horses and plow and scraper, plows up some furrows in the gutter between the wagon track .and the sidewalk, and scrapes the earth up Into the middle of the road. That makes the road rough and lumpy. You must drive over It at a walk, as over a newly plowed field.' If the weather remalnB dry It gets dusty; If rain comes on it is mass of mud. In course of time It gets worn down fairly smooth and hard; and then It Is time to "work out" some more taxes, and scrape up some more sods and loose dirt again. That Is what road-making has meant In most country places In this state, and what it still means on thousands of miles of highway In the moBt highly improved states of this Union. If, instead of that, the same amount of work had been given for the last twenty-five years to laying drains and making macadam, or even good gravel roadways, we should have today a network of roads all over the Union on which any kind of vehicle could run with ease at any time of the year, We need no carriage tax, nor window pane tax, nor gold watch and silver spoon tax, but only an intelligent and systematic application of our ordinary revenue to the making of roads on a scientific plan. The "friends" of Mr. C. J. Curtis have been Industriously circulating the state mont that Mr. George Johnson, candidate for the ofllc of city attorney on the In dependent ticket, "has not the ability to fill the position." It may not be out ot place to say that Mr. Johnson passed his Oregon law examination, after years ot conscientious study, at tho head of the list of applicants before the supreme court, and that he was complimented from the bench by Judge Murphy on his excellent showing, We append the following letter, dated the "University of Washington and Lee, Lexington, W. Va., July 11, ISM." This letter Is signed by C. A. Clraves,' prof ossor of common and statute laws, and John Randolph Tucker, dean of the university and professor of equity and commercial law, and of constitutional and interna tlonul law. Mr. Tucker is known to every attorney in tho United States as one of tho most brilliant lawyers now living: Mr. Gcoi'Ke Johnson, of Astiria, Ore. attended this law school in the session ot KH-X of nine months. Ills diligence and studious heblts wert exemplary, and Ins acquirements In the law were ample to quality him for successful work In his profession. lie exhibited unquestionable native ability as a thinker and .leaker, and his IiIkIi und honorable character and stiullous methods give promise. In our opinion, of a high position In the profes sion ho has ch.ix.-n. We do not hesitate to say this of him, for ho has .lot only merited our commendations as a student, but our friendship and esteem as a Thi. w.ukly sheft conducted by C. J. Curtis says in Its lus of yesterday. In It'gard to on of that genth-man's numer ous xi!ar,atlom: 'Tor prm.f of this nf. r to K. Osburn, ;i;,.l.La' t poll,--. .iui;;p..'

The formation of this mutual admiration society needs only Mr. Osburn's defense of his friend Curtis to ccmvnt the union. Naturally. In response to Mr. Curtis' appeal, Mr. Osburn will be quick to come to the ccrntch with explanations sntlsfnctory to Atr. Curtis. MUTUAL CONFIDENCE. Extraordinary Scene on a Railway (The Jybaert de Kater.) An amusing anecdote of a lady ana gentleman who were traveling together runs as follows: They were strangers together. All at once the gentleman said : "Madam, may I ask you to ,ook out of the window? I should like to make some change In my toilet." "Certainly, sir," she replied, at the same time getting upand turning her back upon him. ' A few moments afterwards he said: "Now, madam, I have finished and you can sit down again." When the lady looked round rhe saw her wale companion transformed lntd an elegant lady, wearing a thick veil. "And now, sir or madam, whatever you are," -said the lady. "I would also request you to put your face out of the window as I, too, wish to make some alterations In my attire." "Certainly, madam," said the man In woman's clothes, and turned at once the other way. "Now you may resume your seat." To his great astonishment the man m woman's garb, on sitting down again, saw his traveling companion transformed Into a man. He burst out laughing and said: "It appears that we are both trying to run away. What have you done? 1 have been robbing a bank." ''And I," said the quondam lady, as he fitted the "darbies" around his fellow passenger's wrists, "am Detective J , from Amsterdam, and have been on your track for the last couple of days and now (presenting a revolver) keep still."

"This is the first Sunday morn ing I ever knew you t'o come down In less than an hour. 1 won't have to stand over you with a club this time to get you ready for church." "For church?" echoed Johnny.

Lung Diseases and Rheumatism Many Remarkable Cures The objections urged against Indio In the past by the large numbers who otnerwise would nave been glad to tak advantage of Its beneficial climate, has Deen a lack of suitable accommoda tion. The Southern Pacific Company, takes pleasure In announcing that sev eral Commodious and Comfortable Cottages have Just been erected at Indio sta tion, that will be rented to applicant at reasonable rates. They are fur nit hed with modern conveniences, sup plied with pure artesla-j water, and so situated as to gove occupants all the advantages to be derived from a more or less protracted residence in this de Ughtful climate. (From the San Francisco Argonaut.) "In the heart of the great desert ot the Colorado which the Southern Pa cifio road traverses there Is an oasis called Indio, which. In our opinion, If the sanitarium of the earth. We be lleve, from personal investigation, thai for certain Invalids, the-e is no spot or this planet so favorable." G. T. Stewart, M. D., writes: "The purity of the air, and the eternal sun shine, nil one with wonder and delight. Nature has accomplished sc much that there remains but little for man to do. As to its possibilities as a health resort, here Ib the most per fect sunshine, with a temperature al ways pleasant, a perfectly dry sol! for rain la an unknown factor: pure oxygen, 'densa atmosphere and pure water. What more can be desired? It is the place, above all others, for lung troubles, and a paradise for rheu matics. Considering the number of sufferers who have been cured, I hav no hesitancy In recommending this genial oasis as the haven of the afflict ed."
