Japhet, wheu in search of a father, bad on easy and pleasant time coin pared with that which the Democra cy has in searching for issues for the campaign of 1900. One of the very few papers of any standing or in fluence in its locality which sup ported the bogus money ticket of 1890 was the Indianapolis Sentinel. It-is said that the editor of the Sentinel has now told his party that if it gives any sort of prominence to the silver issue in 1900 it will be defeated. The programme which he is reported to have proposed for his party next year is "anti trust, anti uiilitansu), anti-expansion and tariff reform." In tlropping t'.lver the Indiana dictatorship of the most despicab'e when Aguinaldo was lauded to the skies as one of the great patriots of the century. It is not surpiising that the first paragraph of the conference add i ess to the people should denounce "the war of conquest." The strange thing is that in the midst of the tumult they could agree to strike out the woid 'extermination," which was in the original draft. However, this playing with ftarful terms will not be very rich in results. Critics and theorists do not carry much weight unless tbey have tho confi dence of the people. These Buffalo visionaries who tan agree upon no single project, UDless, peihaps, it be to haul down the American flag at Manila, represent nobody and when the great heart ot the country is not behind them, they will accomplish little or nothing. The address which was read by Professor Ilerron of Iowa, and prob ably prepared by him, has too much of rant in it to be taken very serious ly by common 6cnse people. For several days he has been groaning from the plalfoim about "a military Democratic editor finds himself in a pretty numerous company. Gen. A. J. Warner, who can claim to be the father ot the silver foil', now that Richard I Rland is dead, advised his party a few days ago to abandon that issue, or to keep it far in the background. Wharton Barker, who was one of the loudest of the shout ers for it in 189C, has cut loose from eilvcrism, but has gone over to green back ism. Ex-Senator Peffer has dropped silver, too, but he has come over to the Republican party. Some of the newspapers of the Teller ele ment of the Republican party, which went into the Bryanite coalition atter Teller's secession from the Re publicans in 189G, are advising their friends to say nothing about silver in the coming canvass. On the other hand, the Bourbons, under the lead of Jones, Altgeld, Bryan, Stone and George Fred Williams, urge their side to stick to silver. The trouble with the Democracy is that it is certain to be beaten, no matter what programme it adopts. The set of "principles" urged by the Indianapolis editor are, of course, absuid. When the Democrats had eutire control of the government during half of Cleveland's second term they made no attempt to frame I any anti-trust legislation. In the! campaign at the end of Cleveland's term the Democracy leagued itself with the most vicious trust which ever appeared in this country, the j silver trust. The Democrats will hare an interesting lime shouting against militarism and expansion, in view of the fact that a large and cunstaiitly grow ing element of their pniiy favwrs both militarism and ex pansion. If the Democracy declares for tariff reform, it will be confronted with its record when it framed the "perfidy and dishonor" tai iff of 189 1, wbich looked carefully after the interests of several of the trusts, the sugar fchedule of wbich was drawn up tiy Havcmeycr, of the sugar trust. On the other hand, if the Democracy abandons silver, it will be cut by all the Populists, and will not carry a single Western state, or any state outside of a few of those l i the South. In any case, its de feat is certain to be overwhelming enough to make alt the other party beatins?s since J 872 look small. j Globe-Democrat. kind," and throughout the address dwells upon the awful dangers that are to result from this spirit of militarism. According to the pro fessor's ideas a republic with a population of 75,000,000, and a reg ular army of G5,000 is a military autocracy like that of the czar of all the Russians. Tucrc may be some who will be led away by such rub bish as this, but they can not be many and their influence will not be all-powerful. Some good ideas may be contained in the mass of reform subjects referred to, but there is so much exaggeration, venom, extravagant denunciation and professional claptrap in it all that very few will regard it as of any practical value. As one of the fearless delegates of the slim minor ity said at one of the sessions, one drop of good red patriotism can nchieve more in a day than an army ot croaking pessimists can accom plish in a lifetime. whelming triumph for the Republic-1 aus la 1900. There will be no. chance to get up a scare next year about a possible Democratic victory, and consequent industrial and finan cial disaster. Horn this jeril the United States will be free in 1900 at least. About 113,500,000 of gold has gone out of the country since the move ment began. Perhaps $30,000,000 or $10,000,000 in all will go cut before the flow stops. Usually there is an outgo for a few months every year. In 1898 we escaped any such movement, but that was an excep tional case. A gold outflow is looked for each year as a matter of course. The fact that it is not at tracting any particular attention now is shown by the circumstance that the gold reserve in the treasury is growing constantly. It is at present about $10,000,000 above tlie mark at which it stood just previous to the time when the gold exportation started a month ago. This, of course, is because the banks are furnishing all the gold which is going out now. The production of gold by the mines of the Ui.iled States in 1893 was $04,000,000, or much more than the exportation is likely to he this year. The production of 1899 stands a chance to bo $70,000,000 or over. 3. ! JiV Windmills. I V I I If ermotor THE DESPONDENT DEMOCRACY JTUE BUFFALO CONFERENCE. After a session in which pandc Some Democratic papers are get ting a little aid and comfort from an assertion by Clmuncey M. Depew, In an interview in London, thai lue "questions not dreamed of at the last struggle (1890) are forging to the front,': and that "no man can tell the issue with any success until the electoral vote is counted." This utterance is considered by some Democrats to mean that one leading Republican concedes the result of the election of 1900 is in 6ome sort of doubt. Not the fflintrst doubt is felt by any Kepuimcan about the re;ult of the election next year. Every Re publican looks for a bigger victory for his parly than was uained in 1890. In ibis opinion a vast ma jority of the intelligent Democrats of the country agree with the Repub licans. No Democrat nnywhere is m kirg any prophecies of victory for his side. Nearly every Demo cratic newspaper in the country was predicting a triumph for his party on the eve of the canvass of 189G. The feeling among Democrats now differs widely fiotn what it did then. Everybody can see at present that the chances for a Republican victory of big dimensions in 1899 are better than they were in 1895. There is a greater degree of despondency in Democratic circles at the present time than there has been on the eve of any other presidential canvass in on in in reigned, the social confer- j since that of 1808. ei.ee at Buffalo on Monday agreed The fact that Democrats pretend to a hodge-podge of reform ideas J to find some encouragement in embracing about everything that i Chauncey M.

Some property owners have been very negligent in the matter of keeping their trees trimmed. Un several ot the prin cipal streets of the city limbs have been permitted to grow so they overhang the sidewalk and in pasa'ng under one has to stoop. When it rains, or even dar ing sunshiny weather persons carrying umbrellas or parasols have cnmeroui times ruined them on account of over hanging limbs. This should not be permitted for if the owners of property do not see fit to trim their trees the city should attend to it, for there is an ordinance prohibit ing the same which we give below. Another thing which is quite annoying is the manner in which things are piled on the sidewalks in some portions of the city. There is also an ordinance against this but from all appearances it is a dead letter. The following is copied from ordinance No. 274: Sec. 3. Xj person owning or occupy in ar.y building or premises shall place or cause to he placed or maintained, or suflVr upon the street or sidewalk in front of such building or premises any goods, wares or merchandise by way of show, advertisement or otherwise, to ex tend more than two feet oulide of the inner line of the sidewalk. Sec. 8.

Several were in the saloon at the time and noticing the peculiar manner in which the man acted walked up to the ma- chine and became convinced that the man was working some scheme. Mr. Fall's attention was called to the matter and he investigated and found tho man was playing counterfeit nickels. Fait Immediately telephoned for Sheriff Kelly who crn d-wn and ar rested the fellow who pretended to be decidedly under the in Quince of liquor. When taken to the county jttil and questioned he said his name was John son and that he had arrived in town last night, earning from Wallula. On being asked where he secured the spurious coin, which was a bate imita tion and could be told by blind man, he said he bought them from a man here in town, which undoubtedly is a falsehood. When searched, 8.C3 in good money Cuba which has lately become a part of the United States is but 130 mil s from the coast and separated only by the straight of Florida. The entrance to the harbor of Havana, which is the principal city on the island, does not exceed a half a mile in length and is so narrrow that only one ship can pass in at a time. Beyond Ibis narrow channel lies the harbor itself, which is so larke that every man-of-war of England coold be anchored there, and yet so well pro tected from the wicds and waves that ships are perfectly secure within its limits. The city itself, viewed from the harbor, is wonderfully picturesque, with large and imposing structures solidly built of stone and often painted in brilliant colors. It is true the bright anticipations of Havana, which one forms from a distance, are to a certain extent dispelled on landing and walking through its narrow streets. But Havana is not the only city in the world of which this cm be said. On theothcr hand Havana hai a num ber of extremely attractive parks and promenades, which in the evening are the resort of the beet society in the city.

Serious Accident. Two of a Kind. About 9 o'clock Tuesday evening as Richard Hackett, who is employed in the machine shops of the O. R. A N., while in the act tf touching off a large cannon lire cracker which he held in his right hand, he met with a very serious and painful accident. He had ignited the fuse and was in the act of throwing it into the street, and as he drew back his hand to throw, It exploded, tearing away a portion of all of the fingers. lacerating the flesh in a frightful man ner and throwing the thumb from its socket and tearing away the cords toil lay upon the back of his hand. He was at once taken to the office of Dr. Chip- man, who amputated the Index Ennr " - just below the second joint, the next two fingers below the second joint and the little finger closo to the hand. The thumb was brought back to its place and some twenty-three stitches were taken to hold it there. The operation was very tuccessfully and ikilifully re formed. Dr. G. W. Biggors assisted Dr. Chipman in the surgical operation. Another accident ot similar character though much less serious occurred on Tuesday evening to Dan Turner, who lost the end of ono finger by the explo sion of a piece of fire works.

We have been without light for the past two year?, and are in the same position as when the matter was first discussed. The committee appoint ed from the council have done every thing in their power to remedy the matter so we would be able to have lights, hut so far have not met with success. Ealem is in about the same fix as The Dalles in the matter of lights, and have come to the conclusion that the city has been paying too much for light. Today Recorder Gates received a com munication from 8. W. Prescott, of Salem, asking for a statement of current expenses, such as are paid for water, light, salaries, etc., and we presume they want to compare them with their expenses. At a meeting of the council of the above named placa Wednesday they rejected the bide for the street lighting recently submitted by the Salem L'ght & Traction Company, and the Welsbach 3 Street Lighting Company of Americs The reason assigned for this action ij that the b:ds offered were not sufficient ly reduced that the council desired to enter into a contract. The meeting iai attended by only the five conncilraen known as the "reform members," ho are themselves disagreed as to the proper course to pursue. The motion ol Alderman Burrows to reject tlis bids prevailed, after a lively discussion, bji vote of three to two. NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION. TJ. 8.
