SEAR'S LETTER. fl MWVw rp Anrll 1ft In your reply to tho earnest, frank, earless and courageous article of O. 0. Emery, editor of the Yamhill In- ependent, you say you cannot get kway from the fact that In 1892 tho 3emocrats and Populist politicians ised to re-elect Cleveland. I desire ask upon what authorl y do you take the allegation; or what have 3U to gain In maklag such statement the light of all the circumstances? , voted for Weaver electors In 1892, id If you and enough more like you m done so, Cleveland would have ever again been president: and today liver would have, been restored to linage; the Republican crime of 1873 would have been reversed, and eacoand prosperity would have come i our now suffering people. The day following tho November ectlon In 1892, a? I passed through ena (a polling place). I saw tho Bllowlng notice on a tree.

James K. Sears. SOME PRESS COMMENTS. The Republican platform Is a cowardly "straddle" of the money question. A party that hasn't the courage to say one thing or tho other, so that its meaning could not bo misinterpreted, Is not entitled to tho respect of voters. Orcgonlan. Here Is the extract from the Re publican platform adopted at the recent Portland Republican state con vcntlon(that voted down a single gold standard resolution,) and thereby en dorsing tho prliiclplo of blmctall8m, tho Republican national platform of 1892, and tho Oregon platform of 1891: The American pcoplc.from tradition and Interest, favor bimctallsm and the Republican party demands tho use of both gold and silver as standard money with such restricts and ynder undcrjsuch provlslonsto be determined by legls!atlon,as will secure the main tenance of tho parity of values of tho two metals, so that the purchasing, and debt-paying power of the dollar, whether of silver, gold or paper, shall be at all times equal. WHAT "WILL THEY DO ? Tho Democratic party of Oregon has come out square for free coinage of silver 10 to 1 and for "tariff for rovenno only ' Tho Republicans on the other hand are opposed to freo coinage of silver and in favor of a "protective tariff." Now tho rank and file of both parties arc divided on both these measures. A protection and sound money Democrat cannot consistently vote his party ticket. On the other hand a freo silver Re publican cannot consistently vote tho Republican party, If he considers free silver paramount to protection. So what will cither of this class do ? Evidently tho voter must choose which he considers tho paramount questions and vote accordingly. Roscburg Plalndealcr. Tho Plalndealor Is mistaken In say ing that tho "Republicans are op posed to free colnagoof silver" They voted down a resolution opposed to free coinage of silver, thereby Im pliedly refusing to go on record against free coinage.

THE CUBAN WAR. Havana, April 17. Further details of the fighting between tho Alfonzo XIII battalion and tho Insurgents un der Mncco, at San Claudlo, near the northern extremity of tho military lino across the provlnco of PInardcl Rio, shows that tho Spanish gunboat Alcrta, which so opportunely went to tho assistance of tho troops, found the latter had been compelled to re treat before an overwhelming force of 5000 Insurgents. Although tho latter outnumbered tho men of tho Alfonzo XIII battal ion by over 10 to 1, and in spite of the fact that thO'Soldlers wore led In pur suing tho retreating vanguard of the enemy Into tho position which almost enabled the lusurscng to surround them from neighboring heights, the Spanish retreated In good order, light ing stubbornly as they did so. During the retreat the government troops Inflicted heavy loss upon Maceo's forccs,and succeeded In main taining a correct formation until, nftorasovon hours fight, tho harbor of San Claudlo was reached and the troops barricaded themselves In the best positions posslblo and determined to fight to the last. During this long and harassing retreat, the Alfonso XIII battalion lost only one olUccr and four men killed and had only 13 men wounded. The fire of the troops was well delivered, and tho movement of the battalion so ctllclent that tho 5000 Cubans were unable to achieve any advantage further than compell ing tho greatly overmatched body of Spanish Infantry to retreat in good order.

Should ono nf them stumble ho would bo thrown be neath tho wheels of tho cur and lose a limb, or possibly his life. Parents should warn their children of tho dan ger, and the pupils should be obliged to remain a safe distance from the track. Not only are tho primary pupils guilty of such carelessness, but sorno of tho older pupils will meet with a serious accident somo evening, If they do not cense jumping on and off of tho Salem local as It passes along tho saino point In tho evening.

It will bo remembered that accidents, along this saino track and In tho same vicinity in tho last few years, cost one boy u leg, and an other ono a hand, and, unless such practices are abandoned, we fear wo will bo obliged to chronicle another even more serious mishap.
