Tha uninformed cltixen who reads the burning diatribes against trusts, fulmin- ated by certain democratic senators In the discussions on the sugar schedule, may suppose these gentlemen to be really In earnest. But If he will go back three years to the time wheo the Wilson bill wa "held up" In a then democratic sen ate, and held up by democratic senators, be will find that these loud mouthed gen tlemen who are howling "trust" arc the very ones uador whose guidance the "per fidy and dishonor" bill of 1S94 was framed, and Its sugar schedule so shaped as to create the greatest scandal that has been known in political history In many years. Senators Vest. Jones and Mills, who are now snouting tnat sugar trust stock naa rise a a result of the probable adoption of the present sugar schedule, are thejiniu upon an "exatulnatlin." From very Individuals who framed the sugar i this the n.odest woman naturally shrinks schedule of the Wilson bill, under which ;sh 19 rtKht- ExcePl m ver unusual cae . . ... of "female weakness" examinations are sugar stock advanced S8 per cent, while , . . ,. unnecessary. Dr. Pierce s Favorite 1're- the advance during the entire consldera- gcrlptlon is a simple, natural remedy for tlon of the present bill U only f per cent and this is a mere Incident of the general advance which has been strongly marked meantime In stocks of all kind. Ihey are the men whose work In the direct intereft of the sugar trust was character ised as one of "perfidy and dishonor" by President Cleveland. People who know the facts lake the present utterances ot these senators at their true value. Yesterday the mayor vetoed the ordi nance passed at the last meeting of the council for the building of the McClure drainage system. This is a hard blow to the city, and to those property-owners having hill-side lots, which have been sliding more or leas during the past year. The mayor, no doubt, was Impelled to take this action because the ordinance originally pawed with only a majority of o&e; and in view of the fact that the re monstrant against the measure, who withdrew their names from the protest with a string tied to the withdrawal, might have secured the defeat of the measure If they so desired. II id the or dinance originally been imsscd by a vote of six to three, the protects would have cut no figure in the case. As it is, the city has lost one of the most important improvements proposed in years. It Is ab solutely certain that the engineer' plans could have been curried out successfully. It seems to be a fact that the Socojtl and Third wards can get any proposition through the council they want, but the First ward usually !iaa to take a back seat. It Is greatly to be hoped that the council at an early day, in its wisdom and for the public good, will pas some sub stitute measure which will secure this ail-important drain. There la no doubt that currency reform Is to follow close on the heels of tariff reform. It is now understood that Pres ident McKinley expects to send a mes sage to ooogresa Immediately after the enactme.'X of the tariff law, recommend ing the passage of a bill for the appoint ment of a currency commission, com posed of members of all parties, which shall devise and frame a plan for the general revision of the currency system of the United States. His desire is, it is said, that such commission shall be cre ated at once In order that the results of its labors may be laid before co.-igress for action at the regular session, which be gins next DecemlKT. This ia In accord with the wishes of the people, and is a continuation of the same policy which was adopted with regard to the tariff. It will be recalled that the republican member of the house committee on ways and means, after congress met last win ter, went to work to prepare the Dingley bill, and had it in nearly perfect shape to report when the. present extra session was called by the president One by one the assertions of the silver orator of last fall are being disproved. One of the most promLient of these was the frequently reiterated statement that the prices of farm products and other ar ticles kept pace with the price of silver. No statement made during the campaign has been so thoroughly disproved by the evidence of tlc past six months as this one. Wheat has practically doubled in value, wool hagone up 60 per cent, sheep have nearly doubled In price, and other article ot farm production have larsvly Increased In value, while silver hn stead ily gone down In price until It ha reached nearly or quite the lowest point In It history. The American bicycle lead the world, as the rapidly Increasing report show. The value of bicycle sent abroad durlr.it the month of April, thl year, amounted to fl.li;.!04 (i again!

The so-called "silver republicans" dream that they will hold the balance of power in I atlonal politics. They forget that the !rwUa' ,0" ,n ,h "H1,'' ty Is extremely small. The tariff plank of the next democratic platform will cause as much bitternesa n the convention a did the silver o.ues lion at Chicago In ls5v HOl'SEKEtriXG.

THE OBJECTION XOT GOOD. There are people who have objections to advertising matter In the columns of a newspaper. The ground of objection Is that they do not want to read ad vertisements. Sow this objection Is not good, for oftentimes these advertise ments convey valuable information. For Instance, how else would the trav eling public learn of the excellent din ting car service of the Wisconsin Cen tral lines between St. Paul and Chicago, or the general comfort of traveling over this popular line. For particulars call on the nearest ticket agent or address J. C. Pond, G. P. A., Milwaukee. Wis., jor Geo. S. Batty, General Agent, US Stark street, Portland, Or. German papers are lauding the example of an Argau pastor who helps the poor (and incidentally benefits his own health) by assisting parishio.rs who cannot af ford to hire laborers in the vegetable and grain fields. Some for ten, some for twenty and some for thirty years have suffered from piles and then have been quickly and permanently cured by using De wltt's Witch Hazel Salve, the great remedy for plies and all forms of skin diseases.
