The Weekly Chronicle.
OFFICIAL TAPER OF WASCO COCNTY.
There is one thing that the people of
Oregon need not be iu fear of, and that
is the assassination of their governor by
a crank. They never kill any of their
own number. Arlington Kecord.
Ambrose Kierce says the only differ
ence he can aee between Lee Fain-hlld
and the monkey is that neither can
write poetry. Ambrose seemingly does
not know that Lee is headed for California.
There has been an insurrection at
Coouiassie, and the King of Ashantee
was stoned to death in the streets. We
wait with profound interest inch action
President Cleveland may take for the
overthrow of the usurper and the eleva
tion to the throne of the rightful heir.
We are promised the new tariff bill,
as the democrats wish it to be, in a very
ahort time. While we are not breathless
with anticipation, and have no terrible
dread tiiat it will ever go into effect, we
may as well register our howl now as later
against wool being placed on the free
list, and remind the democratic tariff
tinkers that Oregon is hopelessly lost to
them if they do so. Even Texas may
have to be watched pretty closely if they
commit this blunder.

In talking with a Hawaiian relative
President Cleveland asked if he did not
think an eight months' atudv of the
Hawaiian question did not eminently
qualify him for disposing of the question
to the best advantage. This was meant
to be a poser, but the relative, Mr. Pratt,
aid he considered a thirty years' resi
dence in Hawaii a greater qualification.
But then, nothing can change Grover's
opinions on anything, and he will talk
queen until the end of the play.
Perhaps there is more truth than
poetry in the rumor that Hoke Smith
has kicked over the traces as a member
of the Cleveland cabinet. With all the
antipathy of a southerner to a negro, it
is not likely he would be hand in glove
with the president, who wants to restore
a thick-lipped, curly haired negro to the
throne of a monarch, particularly Lilio
kulani, who was corrupt and profligate
and universally diepised. The provis
ional government is now composed of
the leading men of brain in those islands,
most of them of Anglo-Saxton origin, but
who were nevertheless born in Hawaii.
The anarchists of Chicago have so
little to be proud of thatthey may be ex
cused for being proud of Altgeld. It is
seldom that the executive of a great
state comes to the help of the lawless
element as be has done, and the men
and women who flaunt red banners in
the face of an orderly community and
make open war upon property are justi
fied in toasting and feting him. Alt-
geiu is distinctively tlieir governor,
elected hy their votes and pledged to un
do the work of the courts in visiting pen
alty upon them. They would add the
blackest ingratitude to the long list of
their other peculiar characteristics if
they were to fail in the praise of their
champion on "Anarchists' day." Ore-
Tuesday evening's Mountain con
tained an article adverse to the action
of the city council, though expressed
weakly and with great fear and tremb
ling; and last night, in an excess of seal
to tot itself straight, it goes to the other
extreme and arrays Itself squarely
against the farmer. With this new ally,
Tus Chronicle feels that it has a heroic
battle upon its shoulders, but being on
the side of right, has no fear of the out
come. Iu the first place the article in
last night's Mountaineer is contempt
ible, not merely because that paper re
treats from its own sentiments, but be
cause it ignores the point of contention
standing boldly out all through Th
Chronicle's article ot'Tuesday. Here
is the yeep referred to in Tuesday's
Mountaineer : Oh, reader, defend this
weakling with a broad mantle of charity :
The ordinance was passed at the
earnest solicitation of cltixens, and we
learn this morning that the mayor in
structed the marshal not to enforce it
too strictly. This commuaity desirs to
be a cit v. but not to such an extent as
to drive trade away. The beach is an
available nlace for teams to be fastened,
and it will in no wav interfere with the
How pitiful it is that we have an or
dinance that the marshal is instructed
not to force "too strictly." Perhaps the
mayor was afraid some indignant far
mer might take a shot at the retreating
marshal leading away his horse. He
would certainlv have that right. The
next sentence is the only honest one in
the paragraph, and will be hard to
reconcile with what the Mountaineer
said last night. Here it is in all its
diplomatic leniency: "This com
munity desires to be a city, but not
to such an extent as to drive trade
away." But, as if afraid of having said
too much, it dismisses the whole matter
by telling what a good place the beach
is for teamsters, whereas the beach is
infested with tramps, hobos and thieves
what would steal everything out
of the wagon, including the end gate,
whjle the farmer was up town doing
The criticism of the Mountaineer last
night is equally senseless. Here are

For once the Tdlegram has struck the
keynote. Though the succeeding para
graphs are rather far-fetched, ending
with the usual hysterics, the premises
are correct. Mr. Cleveland hits not
once, but often in the last few months,
grossly exceeded his authority, which
would be a burning shame for the peo
ple longer to tolerate. Impeachment's
the thing. .
Mr. Cleveland has closed the last door
to his own escape by conferring upon
Willis extraordinary powers as com
mandant of the U. S. navy in Hawaii,
in case his passports are proffered him
by the provisional government.
It is believed that the custom of rais

from the days of chivalry, when the

so doing they might forego the advan

at the same time by such act declare

A New York democratic excange says:
The results of the state election are
gratifying beyond expectation. The re
buke to the arrogant dictation of the
bosses is so overwhelming that its ef
fects cannot fail to be lasting and leue

nard alone would have leen sufficient to
express the indignation of the people
against the course of the democratic
machine, the defeat of the whole state
ticket will serve as a warning to candi

Probably the commercial affairs of the
country were never on a sounder basis.
More bubbles have been pricked and
mere wind let out of questionable enter
prises during the past year or two than
recent history can furnish parallels for,
says Town Topics. This beinj: the case
and the lessons of the past being so fresh
in men's minds, sensible action would
see in to oe out a natural outcome ol a
condition with more sensible elements
in it than any which has prevailed for
years past. One fact may unhesitatingly
be accepted. The people breathe more
freely than they did a few short months,
or even weeks, ago. Hard times have
been the plea for lack of investment,
lack of enterprise In every direction.
Those whose pockets have suffered very
little, or not at all, from the depression
have nsed the plea as freely as have
those whose experiences have been the
worst. The relaxation of the tension
under which men have acted can
have but one result benefit to
trade all over the country, This must
not be expected as a great spasm. It
will doubtless come somewhat slowly.
The returning confidence will gather
force with every day's developments,
and not descend upon the country like
cloudburst. The men who could, but
would not spend for fear of what might
be, and the men who would, but could
not on account of what really had over
taken them, will each do a share toward
the revivification of lagging industries.
The former, seeing the impending peril
pass and disperse like a threatening
cloud, will coma into the marts and pur
chase as before, and will reappear with
their capital to aid the enterprises
which languish for such support. The
latter, with collections once made possi
ble from expanding business, without
fear of disaster overtaking them, or with
the necessary fund furnished to com
plete their ventures, will re-engage in
the activities of commerce and in the
enterprises conceived, but not matured.

Mountaineer's absence of argument is so
conspicuous) that it is unlawful and
against the spirit of the ordinance, as
originally drafted, that teams are to

points touched upon by ourcotemporary,

ferring to the editor of this paper as a

very large glass house, we will let him
enjoy the consciousness of an occasional
visit to Portland and Heppner.
Why does not the Mountaineer attack
us on our main standpoint which is
prominent all through our article, that
The Dalles is destroying itself by Itgis-
lating against the farmer in favor of feed
yards? Simply because it is unanswera
ble. In arraying itself against the farmer,
the Mountaineer ss keeping np with its
former record in its spiteful kicks against
the citizens, bemoaning their lack of
enterprise and snarling at them contin
ually. With the Mountaineer in oppo
sition to both the city and country its
field of usefulness is indeed small.
John Hansen, who murdered his wife,
complains that none of his former friends
come to tee him, says the Astoria Her
ald. Probably his former friends are
not accustomed to associate with mur
derers. No one has any use for a man
who will murder bis wife, and the sooner
he goes to hell the better will bis friends
and the community be. The cold
blooded assassin should not be allowed
to see anyone. Hanging is too good for
him. He was a common drunken brute
while alive. He abused himself and !
family and was a disgrace to the com
munity. Let him die like a dog.
