UORTOX AXL THE GRAXGES.
mfcretarv Morton, of the department
of agriculture, is one of President Cleve
land's cabiuet officers who seems to con
ceive it to be a part of hia duty to make
war upon the grange organizations. He
faaa stirred theui up by some sneering
and unjust reference to them in a speech
which he made at the world's fair agri
cultural consrress, and the farciers are
showing their resentment of it.
The secretary of agriculture has evi
dentlv mistaken the character of the
grange organizations and presumes that
the farmers are collectively ignorant.
He has declared that these organizations
are the enemies of the farmers' best in
tereresta. So far as Pennsylvania is
concerned this is grossly untrue, and we
have no reason to suppose it is different
generally. The grangers here have
served the farmers a most excellent
purpose in promoting social intercourse,
n interchange of experience which has
improved farm work and broadened the
methods of farmers. It has not been an
organization for interference with what
did not concern the farmer, and it has in
many ways been the means of improv
ing the condition of the farmer.
The grange was chiefly instrumental
in securing the establishment of the de
partment of agriculture, but the secre
tary seems disposed to demonstrate that
this was a mistake. It was, if all who
were placed at the head of the depart
ment should be like the present secre
tary ; but fortunately that has not been
the case. Both Secretary Colmau and
Secretary Rusk had some knowledge of
what was required of them. They did
not go about the country scolding and
sneering at farmers because they do not
vote the democratic ticket and because,
like people in almost every other pur
suit, they find some advantage In organi
zation. They sought to encourage and
promote the interests of the farmer and,
being practical men with a knowledge of
what was required, they were not al
ways without success.
Secretary Morton is a very different
kind of man. lie is a professional poli
tician and has been such for a quarter
of a century. He has neither fitness for
the position he occupies nor the com
monest understanding of the farmers'
interests. He evidently believes his
principal duty to be toinstruct the farm
er how he shall behave politically,
and the average farmer generally has a
much more intelligent idea of that duty
than a bourbon politician, such as Mr.
Cleveland's secretary of agriculture.
There have been no ill-advised political
movements on the part of the farmers
that have not been encouraged by demo
cratic demagogues, and they complain
only when the farmers' organizations
cannot be bentto their partisan purpose.
The grange is not a partisan organi
zation and that is evidently what has
aroused Secretary Morton s opposition j
to it. He can be certain that it will not
Editor Chronk i-k The statesman
who enunciated the sentiment that "the
sober second thoughts of the eople are

would have had ample justification in
his doctrine if he had been alive at the
election that has just elapsed.
The people had become discontented
with their prosperity and they were be
guiled into the belief that a change
! would be for the better, that the deuio-
era tic party would give them a chauge

Confiding in that promise, numbers of
republicans supported that party and
elected Mr. Cleveland president of the
United States on the democratic plat-
form, but that platform, threatening the
protective principle, and that a mass of
"wild cat and red dog" currency should I
be let loose on the business world j
alarmed the people, and called a halt. I
The republican party reminded me of
the unfortunate gentleman who caused
to be carved on his tombstone :
"I was well, wanted to be better,
Took medicine, and here I am."
The medicine they took was a little too
strong and did not agree with them.
They were like the patients of Doctor
Sangrado, who had written a book,
eulogizing bleeding and hot water, as re
lated in nil. Blag. The doctor's patients
all died, but the patients of the doctors
who did not follow Sangrado's theories
all got well.

The Oregouian speaks hopefully of the
morals of Portland, now that such vices
as the Mercury and pugilism have been
squelched. It says: "There is much to
commend in the administration of crim
inal justice in Portlaud for the last year.
Social evils have been abolished that
were traditionally held to be inexpunga
ble. Pugilism has been routed aud the
Mercury crushed. Thisencourages hopes
that would have been thought vain a
year ago. Perhaps the variety theaters
will go next, prostitution will be limited
and gambling forced to take to cover.
It is too much to expect that thete forms
of vice will be abolished; but it is not
unreasonable to wish that they should
be forced to hide, as they do in other

of the people for the benefit of the few.
"We declare it to be a fundamental
principle of the democratic party that
the federal government has no constitu
tional power to impose and collect tariff
duties except for the purpose of revenue
only, and we demand that the collection
of such taxes shall be mited to the
necessities of the government when
honestly and economically ad
ministered." In addition to the foregoing they
added: "We denounce the MeKinley

I Messrs. Blount, Cleveland and (iresh

stating their cae. They have sought
their information among the dusky
satellites and hangers-on of an opera

All the territory now embraced in the
states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho,
says the Spokane Review, was once un
der a provisional government. Pioneers
of American birth ran up the American
nag and knocked for admission to the
Union. Then, as now in Hawaii. Brit
ish interests came very near prevailing,
but the Americans won by a scratch,
ana trie vast territorv ot uregon was
eagerly taken into the Union fold, and
the natives were not consulted either.
It was a lucky thing for the United
States that a Cleveland was not then in
the presidential chair.

terests to abolish it. At nreaent the best I 8tate8' 811,1 81Te" Governor Kussell leave
interests of the farmers seems to be in
the abolition of Morton.
Blonnt lied to please Cleveland,
and Cleveladd expected him to lie if
the truth wouldn't please.
Capt. Cleveland has wrecked the demo
cratic party, with all on board, and gone
down beneath the waves himself.
Minieter Thurston has published a
lengthy statement in answer to Para
mount Blount's report, in which he con
victs that gentleman of promulgating
some untruths, and establishes the fact
that the revolution was accomplished
without any interference from U. S.
marines. The American people will ap
preciate Mr. Thurston's candor and
plain-spokenness at any rate. This is
what they are accustomed to, instead of
the secrecy, intrigue and deception with
which Cleveland, Blount, et a!., now
stand convicted in this Hawaiian affair.
If all papers like tiie Mercury in the
United States were forced to suspend
publication It would be well for the gen
eral morality of the country; and the
(act that they are occasionally roughly
bandied by the courts shows the detesta
tion in which they ore held by the
morally inclined. They are companion
able only to the ignorant and the vicious,
nd their influence can only tend to
make these more so. As surely as water
seeks its level, so all people who revel in
reading the Mercury exhibit their prefer
ence for the immorality of which it is
representative. Everything grows
with what it feeds on, and any person
who habitually reads the Mercury molds
his mind in channels of crime and lust.
The Mercury's circulation was chiefly in
the saloons and brothels, and it is a
pleasure to say that none of the best
people in Portland would tolerate it in
their homes, and it will be conceded
without argument that any devout be
liever in the religion of Jesus Ciirist was
not a purchaser of the Mercury. Tint
Ciiboniclb did not exchange with the
Mercury and never quoted from it, and
while it may have been lion, Tn
CiiHo.ticLK never acknowledged it as
to withdraw from public life.
New Jersey has rebuked the race track
gamblers by 22,r'i22 plurality.
Other states have passed their seal of
condemnation on the book containing
the democratic platform.
The "change" was too great ; it was
abhorrent to the American people and
when it necessitated tlie stoppage of
mills, furnaces, forges and manufac
tories, and brought about the creation of
soup houses, the sad emblems of a dis
tressed people, the people rose in their
majesty and said: "We have had
enough of democratic policy. Eight
months of that policy has been sufficient
for us, and we will return to the republi
can policy, which has given us good
wages and enabled us to live and bring
up our families with peace and comfort."
To add to the maladministration of
President Cleveland we are informed
that contrary to all precedents he pro
poses to set up the throne of the (Jneen
Lilluokalani. We have never recognized
any but governments de Jnetti. Unless a
government has power of self mainten
ance we do not admit it into the family of
nations. Thus we recognized thegovern
mentsof France, and that of the successor
of Dom Pedro and other similar cases.
This action may lead to hostilities and
embroil us with either the power of the
queen or with the provisional govern
ment. Let us hope that the president i
has a justification for his action and that
he may make it manifest. Congress
alone has the right to declare war and
the president's action seems to be pre
mature. T. A. Huijkon.
