THE OFFICtAl. PAPER OF GILLIAM
Secretary Gage is reputed to bo
Lard prerMt-d U devise ways and"
titeune u raise eutiicient revenue
with which w meet ihe largely in
vroused expenses of the present war.
The government baa been con
fronted with a big deficit every
month since the beginning of hos
tilities and now that the army is to
bo increased 30,000 men, the prob
lem of gathering together the
tnnews of war, is indeed a serious
one. The treasury department offi
cials see no other way to increase
the revenue but by increasing the
present stamp tax and by adding
many new articles to the already
large list of revenue producers.
Many persons have hoped to see
the nest congress make some
sweeping reductions in the stamp
tax, but it will be readily seen that
this is not now to be expected, but
on the contrary the people are to
be called upon to bear additional
burdens along that line.
It is to be regretted that the
course adopted by the government
to raise revenue during the rebel
lion, namely, the imposition of a
graduated income tax, is not avail
able in the present emergency, for
if it were it would be a welcome
relief to the men whose duty it is
to keep the coffers filled in time of
- war, but since the decision of the
supreme" court in 1893, declaring
such a tax unconstitutional, it is
not to be thought of.
Another bond issue could be
made, but it is stated that the ad
ministration is averse to more
bonds, perhaps because of the
scathing criticisns which used to be
made against Cleveland's adminis
tration on that score, and the only
course left open is the direct tax
on the toiler through the medium
of the familiar "revenue stamp.
But, perhaps this is the most satis
factory method after all for it
places the burdens of the war
where they properly belong, on the
shoulders of the "dear people,"
who are expected, and required, to
"pay the freight" on all occasions.
The "people" are equal to it. They
are "strong in the back and weak
in the head" and have nothing else
to do but hustle for a living and
pay taxes, while the poor over
worked trust magnates and other
millionaires, who manage to escape
most all kinds of taxation, through
the connivance of the legislative,
executive and judiciary depart
ments of the government, are kept
busy seeing that ''trade follows the
Hag," and, incidentally, that they
get their share of it.
Boss Quay's man Friday, Parti
Ban Penrose, of Pennsylvania, made
a characteristic speech at the state
convention the other day in which
he distinguished himself in his usu
al fool fashion. Among a lot of
other rubbish, he told the members
of the convention that "daring the
recent period of republican supre
macy the great agricultural classes
have baen blessed with abundant
crops," and the wise and sagacious
Pennsylvania politicians applaud
ed and cheered until they had frogs
in their throats and callouses on
their hands. Such blatherskites as
Penrose are to be found in all po
litical parties and, sad to say,
thousands of brainless idiots are al
so to be found who will sit and
swallow such silly elush and be
lievo it wisdom. Any man who
will assume to state that any sort
of political aggregation, in or out of
office, can influence growing crops,
the seasons or the sunshine, is a
charlatan and a chump, and any
audience that will listen to him and
fail to throw him out of the hall,
proves that it is built just right to
dance to the music of Quay's quirt
and that they deserve no decenter
leader than Quay himself. What the
country needs most is a few million
voters possessing sufficient brains
and backbone to" do a little inde
pendent thinking on things per
taining to politics and then chase
all such charlatans out of the
country, and not a voter will have
to leave his own political camp to
indulge in the sport either, for all
the political parties, republican
democratic, populist and prohibi
tion, are cursed with a full quota
of such cattle.
A SAMPLE CASE.
The Diamond Match Company is
a giod illustration of the nature of
principal one being owned by Ed
win Gould, paying hint a million
dollars for a concern worth only
half that sunk This and others it
closed vrp throwing many hundreds
of people, mostly women, out of
employment. Then the 6upply
was decreased until it could raise
the price of matches, which has
been done, the latest increase being
about 25 per cent 1
Net results of the operation of
the trust: A largely increased and
an abnormal and an unconsciona
ble price for an article used by all
the people; the support of hundreds
of people taken away; a million or
several millions of money transfer
red from the pockets of the people
to those of a few rich individuals.
Yet it is said that a great, almost
omnipotent, government like ours
can do nothing to interfere in any
way with this operation being re
peated a thousand times, and, in
many instances, on a much larger
"The Oregon Press Association is
holding its annual meeting at Asto
ria this week," says " the East
Oregonian. "It is stated that a res
olution is to be presented asking for
the appointment of a committee to
draft a bill, to be introduced in the
next legislature, requiring a man to
pass an examination before being
permitted to engage in the publica
tion of a newspaper in Oregon.
Of course, if the measure becomes a
law it is not to affect those already
engaged in the newspaper business
in the state. This effort is on a
level with the legislation that has
been secured in the interests of the
other "professions," the law, medi
cine, barbering and blacksmithing.
It is special legislation in its worst
form and unworthy the support of
intelligent and self-supporting men

allowing this to be determined by
the character of his work, nor byj
the intelligence of those who are in ,
the habit of supporting newspapers.
It interferes with personal rights.
TTio8e who advocate it are on a
par with the boy artist who, after
drawing something that looked like
a horse, wrote under the sketch, so
no mistake could be made, "This is
a Horse." And so there are news
paper men in Oregon who wowld
have the law declare, "This is a
newspaper man. w nen news
paper men are deficient in ability
nothing the law can do can "save"
them, wbile those who are efficient
are not in need of any protection
such a measure can give them.
Why not have a law passed declar
ing that all newspaper men should
take a bath and change their
clothes at least once a week?
Doubtless such a law would do
more good for the "profession"
than the one proposed. At least
it would be more sensible."
Oregon has now produced a man
who threatens to rivet the atten
tion of the universe. Hia name is
Eugene Leoper, and he works at
odd jobs for 20 cents an hour. All
sorts of stories are finding their
way into the papers about him.
His particular merits are strength,
endurance, patience, industry and
modesty. He can do more work at
20 cents an hour than any ten men
in the state, and he doesn't kick
onlywhen there isn't work enough.
He has been known to refuse an
extra 20 cents when he was an
hour short. When this was first
reported in the east, the freak hunt
ers looked incredulous and called
it a wild and woolly fake. But
the evidence is accumulating that
it is true. At the last accounts
Hamlin Garland was fitting out an
exploring expedition to capture
him. Eastern Paper.
