Anything may be framed into a statute,
the very government Itself might be over
turned by some ridiculous provision and
long years paw before the deplorable fact
is discovered, as In the case of the bill de
monetizing silver. That case alone is a
warning. Nothing more revolutionary was
ever done witn such Insidious quiet. No
one knew of it outside the three or four en
gaged in It. Snlcin Statesman editorial

Wo warn the public not to believe
such statements until continued by
authority of Mr. Mltcholl himself.
Wo cannot bellpvo that tho pioneer
champion of freo coinage on the
Paclllc const will desert the cause he
has always been a leader I., advocat
ing In the senate and before the )co-
plo. Wo shall not hcllovo It
until vcrlllcd by facts. Senator
Mitchell cannot consistently abandon
Independent American bimetallism
In Its limir of triumph or defeat,
without defeating himself.
Tub JoniNAi. has advocated Sena
tor Mitchell because ho stood for free
coinage and election of senators by
vote of the people. When ho aban
dons those principles ho ceases to
command tho respect and support of
tho people.
A number of suits were commenced
Friday In tho circuit court, at Pendle
ton, by Govornor W. P. Lord, of board
of commissioners for tho salo of school
and university lands and for the In
vestment of tho funds arising there
from to recover different sums of
money duo on promissory notcs.whloh
worn received in consideration or
sales against tho following persens:
J. It. Porter and wife, to recover
$2,600 In addition to Interest, costs or
action and attorney feos; Jeremiah
Harnbart, $2,600; J. M. Uoiitloy, $2,000
Jacob Frazler, $3,000; U. 1 Italloy,
$600; Samuol Johnson, $1,000; G. L.
Ward, $1,000; W. Fitzgerald, $500; W.
N. Hope, $1,000.
Tho abovo Information Is only a ray
of light on a vast subject of Interest
to the people or this state.
The Irreducible school fund Is now
loaned out by the state on real estate.
Many of theso loans were mado when
lands woro high and money was
cheaper than It Is now. Ah tho valuo
of money Is measured by tho amount
of products It takes to exchange for
it, and as tho purchasing power of
products has lwon contracted, tho
owners of these lauds cannot pay tho
Interest and will now loso their lauds.
Tho stnto has soveral millions loaned
nut in this way.
The state will not only lose its In
terest on tho school funds, but will bo
ut tho expense of foreclosing and will
also havo to pay tho taxes that have
accrued. A thorough Investigation of
tho condition of tho Irreducible school
fund would show It to bo In a doplor
nolo condition. Not much rovcuuo
for publlo education will bo derived
from a largo amount of tho loans.
For Sick Headache,

How the Bankers Gamble
With It.
Offering Up Their Gold to the
Eoiroit Jeuunal: What a change
has wine over the spirit of the bank
er's dream! A year or two ago, when
the rjold reserve fell below the $100,
000,000 mark, it was consldend
enough to drive the country to the
verge of a panic. The president was
alarmed; businessmen were alarmed;
the treasury olllelals were alarmed;
the bankers were alarmed; every body
vns alarmed. Uncertainty and dis
trust prevailed the business atmos atmes
phere: "fear or silver legislation"
stalked abroad In the land; and the
bankers, merely tor their own protec
tion, exchanged their legal tenders
tor gold at the subtreasury Justus
rust as they could get hold or tho legal
tenders. The only way to help the
situation and avert untold desolation
and panic was by .another Issue or
bends: the only way to sell bonds was
by secret contract with the banker's
syndicate; and tho only way to induce
the banker's syndicate to take hold or
the matter was by allowing them to
take tho bonds at ligures at least ten
per cent below the market, so as to
leave them a nice little profit tor
"coming to tho rescue." We nil re
member how It was.
Hut what a contrast now! In spite
or tho ract that the silver craze has
lihsumed unexampled proportions("un
cxamplcd" Is u good word) see any
gold bug speech, and there is ten
times as much prospect now or sliver
legislation as thoro was then, and
other alarming symptom has been
inteusllled in spile or all this, the
reserve rails below tho $10 ',000,000
mark without causing the slightest
uneasiness. The treasury olllelals
havep'tthb least rear that another
Issuo or bonds will bo necessary "to
sustain tho creditor thegoverument,''
and as for Mr. Cleveland, why, not a
wuvn of trouble rolls across his peace
ful breast. Tho bankors, who woro so
afraid of silver when there was llltlo
apparent danger, have now not a
shade or distrust. They turn their
gold into the treasury, and take legal
tenders In exchange, and don't charge
UncIoSama cent. Everything Is as
serene as a summer morning. The
reserve, which toll to $00,000,000, has
been replenished by these nice, patri
otic and phllautliroplcal gentlemen,
the bankers, until now It stands at
over $110,000,000, and tho beauty of It
all Is'that thoro Is "no charge." Tho
bankers do this purely out of tho good
ness of their hearts, to suvo the gov.
eminent from any possible cmbarass
incut. How nice!
At tho same time other kind old
goutlemon came forward, and, In
company with somo of those already
mentioned, outer Into a combination
to prevent tho exportation or gold.
Foreign and domestic bankers havo
signed an agreement, whereby bills or
exchaugo will bo issued, and tho
foreign bankers, on whom they are
drawn, will pay them and wait forthelr
gold for "00 days, or longer." This,
you sco, will obviate tho neces
sity or shipping any gold until after
tho election. It Is a little varia
tion of tho Oregoulan's plan or pay
ing foreign balances by "raising tho
rate of exchange," and It will bo
about as effectual in preventing tho
eventual exportation or tho gold. Is
it posslblotliat tho people arc such
simpletons that they will not In
Bluntly sec through this silly subter
fngoV Do wo not know that It Is
simply to postpono tho shipment or
this gold until arur election, and It
will then go Just tho same? Thoro Is
no great attempt to disguise tho
former fact.
"Now listen." When W. II. Unr
vey, in Coin's Financial School,
warned his readers that thoy might
expect to Fee tho exportation of gold
stopped, at any time, by just such
methods, for political effect, ho was
brayed at by every golden donkey In
tho laud, That statement was mado
tho text of whole columns of disserta
tions on tho vagaries or a mind de
ceased. Hut Isn't that ouo silver
ratmtlcal prophecy whloh has come
lltorally and circumstantially true?
How docs it compare, as a prophecy,
with the goldlto promise that tho re
peal or tho Shorumn law would start
all tho wheels of Industry to revolv
ing Inside of 30 days? Wo can now
scm how much otibler It Is to foretell
future events with somo degree of
accuracy when our conclusions nro
drawn from correct premises.
Hut nothing .could bo plainer than
the obJcvAgf this double movo of tho
banker. Anothor Issuo of "bonds
Mado and Merit Maintains tho confidence
of tho pooplo in Hood's Sarsaparllla. If a
medicino cures you when sick; if It makes
wonderful cures ovcrywhero,then beyond
allqucstlon that medicino possesses merit.
That is just tho truth about Hood's Bar
saparllla. Wo know It possesses merit
because it cures, not onco or twlco or a
hundred times, but in thousands and
thousands of cases. Wo know it puree,
absolutely, permanently, when all others
fall to do any good whatever. Wo repeat
Is tho best In fact tho Ono True Slood Purifier.

would make thuiKinds mr,u or silver
votes, so the bankers come forward
and replenish the treasury doubtless
'in tho understanding that no one Is
to withdraw the gold but themselves,
Continued shipments of gold would
make other silver voters, aldo rrom
the ract that tho gold would mostly
come rrom tho treasury or cause aug
mented withdrawals for hoarding; so
the banker cnmblno to prevent ship
ment of gold until after election.
What could Iks more natural, under
the circumstance!1, when wo consider
that the Interests or the bankers arc
'ill with the gold standard, and the
gold standard Is endangered';1 Haven't
they boldly declared that they will do
all In their power to "defeat Bryan at
my cost," without making any en
tangling reservations as to honor or
legitimacy of methods? No ouo can
say that this little scheme of theirs
Is not legitimate, but tho only thing
necessary to defeat Its Intended effect
Is for the voter to thoroughly under
stand It. The gold men may object
to the statement that these things
are Intended tor political cirect, but
wait till we hear the McKlnlcy
orators on the stu tup!
Ono or the most encouraging fea
tures of the situation is that the gold
standard campaigners seem Incapable
or understanding Umt. the "common
herd" have any brains to think with,
no they rurblsh up and trot out old,
moth-eaten tricks that weru 'ex
posed" during Pharaoh's Infancy.
