. 8EVAT0R MITCHELL'S VIEWS.
Senator Mitchell baa declared lilni
Belf. Ho.thlnka the Republican press
has mde)i nihtake In, attributing, the
present financial dlstiessHto tho Sher
man Jaw, Instead of the Democratic
success andear of tariff revision, where
It more properly belojigs. The senator
"I am a blmetaTllst. I believe In the
use of both metals a money d, believe
In the free coinage .of Jwth.jftudJiglJeVe
that the present ratio of 16 to 1 is fair
enough. These are my present opin
ions, aud I might be convinced that
the present ratio is too low, and that the
unconditional repeil of tho Sherman
law would be a good thing, but leer
talnly do not think so now, and I cer
t aly will not vot for unconditional
repta'. To absolutely demonetize sil
ver, while It might afford temporary rr
lief,, would Inevitably iuvolvo the coun
try In times of such rigor that nothing
In our history would approach It, unless
it be the six j-cars' colonial confedera
tion. Owing to the method of admiub
terjug the Sherman law adopted by a
Democratlo administration, that result
may be partially to blame for tho dis
tress that has come upon us, but only
partially. When It became known last
fall that the Demoo aU had succeeded,
things began going wrong, and have
continued to go wrong ever Bince. Up
on the question of finance the two par
ty platforms were practically the same,
but they were widely divergent in the
matter of the tariff. The Democratlo
party went further than party in the
history of our country when It declared
that a tariff for the.protectlon of Amer
ican Industries was a violation of the1
constitution. In the prosecution of the
campaign the whole argument was up
on the tariff. Finance was occasional
y heard of, but only occassional.'
Very little was said about the Shermanj
"Immediately after the election Dem
oorata began to talk of an extra sea
slon, not to repeal or alter financial leg
ioUtton, hut to tear to pieced the tariff.)
The reluctant financial depression was
the direct effect of the feeling of anxiety
and distrust that permeated and domi-1
nated 10,000 American industries. They
did not know what tho;greatunwashed
would do, and they do not know yet.
Democrats aro now trying to shift thq
entire blame upon the operations of a
falsely administered statute, but It will
not do. The facts are these the real
cause has been the free-trade yearning
of a party that has secured control of
both tho legislative uud executive
branches of tho government It is time
however, when political differences;
should be sunk, party lines temporarily
erased. If a Democratlo president or a
Democratlo senator can offer mo a good
law which will tend to extricate the
country from tho present slough of
despond, I will cheerfully vote for It,
But, as I have before said, I am a
blmetalllat, and 10 to 1, It Beems to me
ia a fair ratio.

TWO GREAT CRIMES.
A run on a bank, simply defined, Is

To bring about such a run, as it Is so
well defined by the Oregonlan, is about
as nefarious a piece of business as can
be started these days or any day.
Next to organizing working men and
threatening capltul to bring It to terms
by strikes, dictated by labor agitators,
while helpless women and ohildren suf
fer for bread, an artificially created run
on a bank is the greatest crime that can
be committed against the business In
terests of a country. Both Bhould be
made crimes by statute.

The Meaning ot "Ilunkom."
Tho meaning of tho word "bunk
um," or at least tho impression con
voyed by tho word, has slowly al
tered in this country at least within
tho last 40 yeurH?It originally meant,
according to all American diction
aries, talking for talking's sake or
talking to one audience for tho bene
fit of another. Tho congressional
rriernber for a district of North Car
olina, named Buncombe, insisted on
ielivorinDr a Bpeech to on impatient
house- of representatives, and when
taxed with his conduct defended
himself by declaring that hit was
compelled to( mako a speech which
his constituents could read, and that,
in fact, he was "talking to Bun
combo." This is certainly tho senso
in which Judgo Haliburton, the auth
or of "Sam Slick," used the expres
sion, and our recollection is that in
1840-50 it was so employed within
quotation marks in criticising parlia
The Americans, who catch any
much needed phrase of tho kind
with extraordinary quickness, speed
ily degraded "buncombe" into "bun
kunV and the vulgar spelling was
slowly adopted in Englapd, but with
significant change of meaning. The
word being American, and nil Ameri
can oratory uttered for effect.having
ouo peculiar note in it, "bunkum"
camo to signify speech uttered sole
ly to attract through its tone of pa
triotic exaggeration. The man who
talks bunkum is not; talking vague
npnsense or stuff intended to occupy
time, but is uttering "high falutin"
flattery either of the people or of the
country or of the future which is be
fore either. London Review.
A Contented Scrubwoman.
"I don't have very hurd times now,
do If" appealed the woman who was
down on her knees wiping up an
office floor. "You see I am janitor
in three buildings that I have to clean
up in tho morning, but it only takes
a little while, and then I have time
to go and clean somewhere else. I
have to work in the morning and
work in the evening till 9 o'clock
sometimes, but I don't have fcuch a
hard time of it.
"Oh, no I It ain't as hard as washing.
You have to do so much more work
washing to get the samo money.
You have to wash so many pieces, I
,(At ono onlce I get $8, at another
$6 and at another $4, and that's
pretty good for m,o, I think. I only
havo to dust and clean a Little every
morning, and then I con go some
where else the rest of tho day. I
don't think I have to work so hard.
1 got along very well."
v Surely contentment with our lot is
a great thing, and contentment is
greater than gold. Imagine spending
a (good part of the week on one's
knees cleaning floors and thinking it
isn't hard work. Most of us would
decide otherwise. Buffalo News.
A Friendly 'Wasp.
A gentleman becoming annoyed by
tho persistent buzzing of a wasp
about his head knocked it down with
his newspaper. It fell through an
open window upon the sill apparent
ly dead. Only apparently, for a few
seconds later to the observer's aston
ishment a large wasp-flow on to tho
window aill and after buzzing around i
tho injured ono a second or two be
gan to lick it all over. -After this
treatment (which may havo been a
kind of massage) tho sick wasp
jjeomed to revive, and his friend then
dragged him gently to tho edge,
grasped hipi around tho body and
flow away with him. Evidently tho
stranger finding a wounded comrado
gave some aid partly to restore him,
preliminary to removal to a place of
safety for further treatmeut, and
then carried him there. This bravo
little wasp acted liko a good Samari

A Ferocious Little Snake,
To my surprise tho little black,
snake with yellow polka dotted skin
of India is a ferocious fighter. The
sidewinder, which is ugly enough to
striko terror into the hearte of the
bravest, is always anxious to avoid a
conflict, even when disturbed. On
the copt;rary, this little black and
yellow snake is pugnacious and ut
terly devoid of fear. He ia general
ly to be found by the irrigation
ditches, and when convenient will
get under a sack and there pass the
night, only leaving his shelter when
the sun is warm enough to tempt
him out, Tho other morning I .pick

must confess, and when I laid the
bag down out darted his snakeahip

I not finished his career by halving
him with a shovel.
The Indian woman, I have been
told, made a pet of this evil tempered
snake, showing a strange fancy, I
think, after my experience. The In

he was perfectly harmless and de

The Doc Knew What Was Wanted.
John W. Hayes, the old police court
officer, had a dog that had been in
his family for a long time, but it had
been decided for good reasons that it
must go the way of all flesh. The
family talked it over, and the decision
was finally arrived at that the dog
wagon was to call the next day and
take the animal to the pound. We
called with the wagon the next day,
but tho dog could not be found. We
.called again tho next day and were
told that we had scarcely left the day
before when tho dog put in an ap
pearance. But he could not be found
at our second visit We called the
third day, and although the dog had
reappeared soon after we had left on
the previous day he was not to be
found at our third visit
Then a search was instituted, and
the dog was found under the bed. He
had crawled clear to the farthest
corner. Ho acted just like a human
being that was aware his lifo was be
ing sought, and no argument can
convince me that tho dog did not un
derstand the conversation of the fam
ily that had condemned him to death
and knew just what the dog wagon
