SILVER Ti) 77.' FROXT.
That the sentiment concerning silver
and the free coinage thereof is rapidly
changing, anyone who read must know.
That this change of sentiment will
make iUelf felt in the next national
platforms, is a certainty. Indeed, from
present appearance, it will be a race be
tween nil the parties to see which can
tret the broadest and strongest plank.
Whether it is true or not, the idea has
taken possession of the people that
silver always has been the measure of
value, that agricultural products fluc
tuated in touch with silver, a the mer
cury does with the weather; that low
silver means low prices, and the con
verse of the proposition is equally true,
that high silver means high prices.
A study of the situation for the past
twenty years will show a substantial
foundation for that idea. That silver is
low its friends claim is not its fault, but
the fault uf the laws which have dis
criminated against it. The financial j
panic, which has sent the money of the j
ronntry into hiding, hu had much to
do witn the creatiou of this centiment,
the scarcity of money naturally being
laid to the demonitization of the white

This is the age of trusts. The coal oil
trust, the iron trust, the sugar trust, the
copper trust and dozens of other trusts
of immense proportions, covering vast
industries, and placing the consumer at
the mercy of the combinations have full
swing. The United States senate, the
highest legislative body of the country
if not of the world, composed of or at
least supposed to 1 the deepest think-
It appears from yesterday's Oregonian
that the story concerning the robbing of
the Mt. Hood etage running between
Portland and Government Camp, was a
fake, and probably gotten up by Cohen,
the proprietor of the staire line, as an
advertising scheme. The F.vening Tele
gran published the details of the robbery
giving the names of the victims. This
Tnly confirms us in our opinion tl.it it is
an utter impossibility for the truth to
get over the Cascades since the I'.aker
put its hoodoo on them.
Little by little the strike has worn it
ers, the brightest intellects, the purett self out until nothing remains of it but
minded and most patriotic citizens of
this great republic, stands before the
country today be-smirched by tho con
tamiuation of one of the most dangerous
of these unholy combinations. It is not
long since these trusts were content to
take advantage of unwise laws placed
npon the statute books, but now made
bold by sudden gains, rolling in ill
gotten wealth, they are no longer satis
tied to take advantage of the laws, but
devote a portion of their unholy gains to
corrupting the law makers, bribing the
leoplc's servants to betray them, and to
putting tho people at their mercy to be
plundered as they see fit. Not only
this, but they Lave become so embold
ened by success, that Mr. Sear lc and Mr.
Havemeyer express astonishment when
asked if they had not used their money
to infinence the senate in their favor,
and answer, "of course we did, what
are we here for?" Yet all the acts of all
the trusts, pale into insignificance be
side the one great trust, that Las so
managed its affairs as to be even so far
free from the name of trust. We allnde
to the gold trust, the king of all of its
kind. Havemeyer and his fellows may
fix the price of sugar ; Carnegie establish
the price of iron and steel, w hile he robs K
the government deliberately ; Payne and
bis confederates levy tax on our lights,
Armour on our meats, and the hundred
other great trusts on the different prod
ucts which they control; but the gold
trust is over all and aboveall. It girdles
the world, and rich and oort white and
black, Gentile and Jew, the proud Cau
cassian and ignorant savage of Antralia
are all made subject to it.
Mr. Gorman is a fine talker, but the
question is, whom is be talking for?
Not for his constituents, for they believo
in free trade. Not for the democracy,
for the democracy is practically solid in
its indorsement of President Cleveland'
position. Not for the people, for the
people do not believe in protecting sugar
the remembrance of its inconveniences,
and the bills. The latter will be large,
but as they are mostly divided pretty
evenly thecouutry can stand it. Chicago
and Cook county will have some settle
ments to make but as they are rich it
will cut no serious figure. The main ex
pense of the strike has been the loss of
business, and the strikers themselves
are no light losers, when their wages arc
taken into consideration.
Justice Stephen J. Field, of the United
States supreme court, has been offered
a transfer, piacing him on the New
York circuit, which he hag declined,
stating that he will continue to hold
down the Pacific coast circuit. This is
devilish tough on the Pacific coast, but
there is no help for it. Field is one of
those egotistical democrats who think
the country can't get along without
them, and arc not patriotic enough to
die or resigtv
And now the dispatches tell us the '
Wellman Arctic party is thought to m

good scheme to send the relief party

have little or no trouble.

there was not enough breeze blowing to
stretch their sails, and the homeward
trip had to be accomplished by good,
"In one of the down-town cafes, where
fishermen usually drop in for an early
morning cup of coffee, several hardy
fellows were openly telling that they
had been out fishing, and from their
conversation it is tupposed that fish
were running heavier than usual.
"There does not seem to be much of a
sentiment against the men who fished
Saturday night ; in fact many promi
nent men declare the law unjust and
should be repealed. There is no telling
just what the future will bring forth."
-i aoon LAW.
Tiiat the salary law adopted by the
last legislature is a good one and will re
sult in a great saving to the county can
not be doubted. The clerk's office will
be self-supporting, saving at least 13000
a year to the county, and the sheriff's
office, w Idle perhaps making some drain
on the county treasury, will cost from
$1000 to fL'000 less per year. There was
one mistake in the law and that was
that the salary of the assessor was not
raised. T..e assessor of this county
should receive not less than $200u per
year, for he is put to considerable ex
pense, and we believe that the payment
of this sum would be an actual saving to
the county. Under the present law, the
assessor cannot afford to make as thor
ough and close a canvass of the county
as he should, and in consequence con
siderable property escapes taxation. It
is the most difficult oflice in the county
to fill, requiring more tact, judgment
and energy than any other, and the pay
should be commensurate with the work.
Our legislators will do well to remember
this fact, and have a bill passed paying
the assessor a salury that will make it
an objct to retain the oflice.
THATS Tllli FELLOW.
The senate is disposed to stand on its
dignity, and has refused to instruct its

It is more than probable the house will
have to yield or that no tariff bill will be

seems certain, therefore the conclusion
is justifiable that no tariff bill will be
