Now that the Investigations of the ub-comralttee on reciprocity with refer ence to the advisability of restoring th reciprocity treatlea that were negotiated by Secretary Blaine have ended. It l not too much to say that the work of the committee constitutes the most valuable service rendered by th fifty-fourth con (Ties. There was some doubt manifested by politicians at first as to the advisa bility of such an Inquiry. Some of the party managers were not certain that the replies to Question s:t out by the committee would form the kind of campaign material wanted. But fortunately the committee refused to take a narrow, partisan view of the mat ter, and the result la not only gratify ing to the party men but demostra'.es that there Is not as much politics in the reciprocity question as was at first Imagined. The commendation of the general prin ciple of reciprocity rsema to have corot with general unanimity from all sorts ot manufacturers regardless of party con siderations. There is probably no feat ure of our tariff system, past or present, that has come so near as reciprocity to being a purely business matter. A portion ot the Information elicited by the committee which Is invested with special significance is the showing ot the effects of reciprocity upon our dealngs with Cuba. It Is shown that under three years of reciprocity our trade with Cuba reached the highest point ever touched, showing an Increase of PJOOO In ex ports and ru.OOn.OuO in Imports. Upon the passage of the Wilson bill. In 18M, which compelled the abrogation of the reciprocity treaty. Spain quickly re vtallated by increasing the duty on door from $1 per 230 pounds to HT5 per 2S0 pounds, causing a great falling off In the export trade in that article. The time has certainly arrived when business mn shsll consider the subjoct upon a strictly non-partisan political basis. The practical application of the system has demonstrated the ability of reciprocity treaties to extend and en large our foreign trade and to render more cordial our relations with for Ign countries. By the time another presi dential campaign arrives it is highly probable that the reciprocity system will have ceased to be- regarded as a party Issue, but will have become a fixed American policy which no party win dare to abrogate. A NEW KIND OF STATESMANSHIP. The report given out by S.-nator Teller and bis band of Republican bolters as to the recent conference between :h-m and certain Eastern manufacturers turns uul to be so untruthful and misleading that the latter have been forced to come for ward with tbelr version. It 1 altogether different from tint given out by the five Bepubilcan senators who were pres ent, and should be published far and side as an evidence of bow those men ave ceased to be Republicans, and the xtent to which they are trying to scare is country into some kind of a comprom i with ehem and their currency ideas, wltli them and their currency Ideas, n are not to be moved by the threat these desperadoes. They know well igh that the peril Involved In any sort -concession to the free silver mania would.- ) far greater than to continue to Jt" business for a few years longer un terlHie present tariff. Alexander Crow Jr.4,:qn ot the biggest carpet manu fatSor. r of Philadelphia, give this ac tOJ;tK,. f. tht-conference: ,Ve, la w that Ihe men who had ask eu iJ to come to the conference had the pov-f c I'll a slop to tariff l.-gisiaiion at ti'-fc -Mlon of congress, and we hoped that in iv presenting ot our view as manuf..cu; ts we might be able to In duce the.u to yield a little. When the time for the conference came. Senator Teller, C ion; Jones, Carter, Dubois and Mantle w e present. They sailed right. In, without loss of time, to tell us that we need expect no I gUlaikn from this congress unless sllvw l-glslatlon accom panied lb The gist of their talk was that wv an the lamest manufacturers ot the country.'' owed It to ourselves to use our kitlnrice toward securing support for a silver colnuge measure, thereby gaining 'thftir L'.-lp m- putting through a tariff bIM. t Trie? wera tnirt.n in the Philadelphia fcl'-gatuyii who spoke at the conference. Kour fa'ored the idea ad vanced tr the silver venators, and the remaining nine nat down upon it How land Crott was cm who did not mince matters, H void fiefiatrir Teller and his associate, that their sliver Ideas deserv ed and sheuld have no consideration, and characterize U pronation made to ua as 'nonsense.' He concluded his talk by turning to Senator Taller UuA remarking, I say to you, sir, h!t you will get nothing.' . . "The remainder of us, while Just as emphatic, Wtrtf frtmT)" sjoc so vigorous in our langmuf. I aroused Senator Tel ler's Ire to a cxr.!d raMe extent by what I said, and Ic-wonle uf others were suf ficiently plain to- loave no doubt in the minds of the Wium statesmen that we were unalterai'Ij '"oppwted to their view. Those who did it speak felt the same as those who "id, -and Jo est pressed them selves after th-9-raorifarsnc wag over. "Senator Teller and.l U associates told us one after anolker that they knew our buslnee was prostrated, that th y knew we were losing money, hut vhat they also knew they had us where th'y had been trying to get us for years, and that they Intended to kp us there until the bvlslatlon they wanii-d for their constit uents was accorded thorn. Their lan guage was Just as plain as our was, and no room was I ft for a misunder standing on either side." The eonfeivrioe is said to have boon rxcltlng at time. Vhtl! Alexander Crow was speaking, he a Interrupted by Senator TMIor, who shouted, "Thin you'll get no tariff bill through: you'll gt no tariff bill through." 'Yes, we will," retorted Mr. Crow; "we will, sir. for without protection our In dustries must die." The abator bcvam angry before the conference concluded, ami said to the men they had Invited to Washington to talk with them that th?y controlled th I'nlted States senate now, and would for the next eight ywrs, sJid that the man ufacturers of the country n J nut hope for any tariff legislation In all that time unless a silver measure which met th.ir approbation went through congress. Th y followed it up by asserting that sixteen Western senators had sign-d a written agreement to that effect. Th Cctcago Times-Herald, ant-werlng a correspondent who ask-M what pro nouncement by McKlnley warranted th Times-Herald in assuming that he Is un equivocally In favor of the gold standard, says: It Is true that while (n congress Major McKlnley so spoke upon the currvn.-y question as to seem to fax or a very large use of silver, but the conditions which existed then have undergone sub stantia modifications. There have been limes when Carlisle and Sherman were of Ilk opinion. The moy question cf today Is not th money question of th past. The tendency of progress Is to the highest standard. So is the logical trend of Individual conviction when rightly Informed. Mr. McKlnley is bound, as a presidential candidate, by his own utterance this year. H said In this city on Lincoln day that he favored money composed of "gold, sliver and paper, good th world over." Is this language capable of more than one con struction? To be good the world over as money, paper and sliver must have a gold basis. Paper Is not money, but a representative of money, and the only money good the world over is gold. Sil ver has a value cf Its own commercially the world over, but It monetary value depends upon a stability prooerly main tained in a ratio of gold. When, there fore. McKlnley said that he favors a currency composed of gold, silver and paper, "good the world over," he placed himself unequivocally on record as a believer In and a defender of th gold standard for the United State. The Times-Herald Is not committed to any candidate or any party and will not sup port for the presidency any man who Is not an advocate of honest money. If th Tiroes-Herald did not believe Msjor Mc Klnley to be absolutely sound on th monetary question It would oppose him with all the force at its command both before and after th? St. Louis conven tion. STATE NEW. Interesting Items Culled Krora Oregon's Leading Newspapers. Eight counties In Oregon cast more vote than Clatsop. There have been KiOu) yearling sheep sold for tl.10 per head, 10 cents advance on last years' prices, says a Heppner correspondent of a Pendleton paper. A great many sheepmen say they will sell no yearlings for less than SLIM and two-year-oids at (1.73. The market Is full of buyers, but sales are not being made. Mr. Noble, of Butte City, Mont., bought in the Heppner market 4ci head of caul? for his company at Butte, and may pos sibly purchase a band of sheep. The spring run of hobos has commenced and the city is overrun by this gentry. It would se to that the police are In capable of handling .this nuisance and if It continues the people will be com pelled to take th.' matter in their own hands. The boldness of the hobo Is some thing alarming. They try to force an entrance into residences at the dead hour of night, and in the absence of the male part of the household are liable to commit any drpredation. If this thing continues a dead tramp or two are liable to be found in somebody's door ysrd. Baker Democrat. Rev. R. B. Dilworth has shown us his system of arithmetic, which he has per fected after years of experi-.nce as a t-wcher. Mr. Dilworth claims his system of teaching will save the wear and tear of text bocks ten-fold, while greatly fa cilitating the work ot calculation. We are not up in mathematics, but the plan is so simple and withal so perfect that it Is perceptible to the novice in figures that it is a great Improvement In the art of teaching. From a hasty Inspection, It appears to be the acme In the plan of teaching the science of numbers. Mr. Dilworth haa copyrighted the work. Roseburg Plalndealer. Curry county does not em to he happy unless it has an A. P. A. causing trouble. Two years ao It was the Alaska Pack ers' Association that was destroying In dustry in the county, and now it is the American Protective Association that is causing strife and dissensions. If the people of the county would relegate to oblivion both these mischievous A. P. A.'s and adopt the principles of a third (American Poultry Association), there would be more provisions for the family, tno re money in the pocket, and more p--ace and good fellowship among our you get to It. Wedderbum Gazette. The Del Ncrte Record. In speaking of the project to draw the water out of upper Rogue river In an immn-ee canal, for use in mining and agrlcultu-al enter prises, says: "The consummation of the project will be the means of destroying the fishing on lower Rogue river, which is the main support of Curry county." At present there is not much cause for alarm, as th-re are evidences that the scheme is merely wind. There are neither the agricultural, mineral nor manufacturing conditions In Josephine county to sustain such an enterprise, and will not b in this generation. Even if work should be commned on the scheme, the proj-ctors would soon dis cover that there wre more s'-rlous ob stacles to their draining the river bed. There Is an old adage to the effect that it is not time to cross a stream until you get t It. Wedderbum Gaxette. It is not a miracle. It won't cure everything, but it Will cure piles. That's what De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve will do, because It has done it In hundreds of cases. Chaa. Rogers. A CORRECTION. Astoria, Or. March 2S, Wii. Editor Astorian: Your reporter, writing of the Republi can mass meeting, held In the court houw, says that the motion to nominate delegates viva voce, "was altogether lost, and the regular printed hIIH containing the names previously s-wted wre used." This is not correct. The motion, that the delegates to be voted for at the primaries b nominated in that meeting, was not put because the meetlntf actually adopted and followed the method pointed out in the motion. Nominations were made viva voce, and s-I-ctlons were made from thop nominations. In mak ing the motion referred to, the mover voiced the sentiment of many who think that no ticket Is "regular" simply be cause some politicians and ward xtrlker get together and select names, the great majority of which are known will follow I a given course.
