The Democrats ought to get to
gether again anil decide just what it
was they agree J upon for a platform
at their state convention. We called
attention the other day to a card
that is being distributed among rail
road men in these parts on which is
printed what is claimed to be a plank
adopted by the Democratic conven
tion nt the request of certain railroad
men from Albins, as a substitute for
a plaDk drafted ly the platform com
mittee. Now the singular thing
about this pretended plank is that it
did not appear in the Oregonian's
report nor in the platform as pub
lished by any paper that has come
under our observation, with the
single exception of the Times
Mountaineer. A Pendleton semi
socialist sheet printed it in separate
form and claimed the genuine plank
had been published previously by
mistake; and doubtless the bogus
plank is being used at Pendleton for
the same purpose it is being used
here, namely, to boost a Democrat
into the legislature. It is explained
that this alleged railroad plank and
the plank which appeared in the
platform, as reported by the Ore
gonian, got mixed up somehow by
the Oregonian reporter aud the
mistake was not discovered till it
was too late. Why, in that case, did
not somebody demand a public cor
rection? And why is it that the
platform, ns it n;penrcd in the Oie
gonian, is published in the Populist
Salem Journal under the heading:
'Union Platform Adopted by the
Democrats and Populists of Oregon."
Is it because the Fusionists have no
railroad men down that way that
they hope to deceive by pretending
an interest in their affairs that they
were loo cowardly to own iu public
convention? For that is just what
the whole affair comes to. For when
this bogus plank was before the con
vention on the evening of the first
day of the convention "it was op
posed by Chairman Crawford, Ben
nett of Wasco, O'Day of Multnomah
and other members of the platform
committee. They said it was alto
gether too radical and would invoke
the wrath of the corporations upon
the Democratic ticket." So repotted
the Oregonian the following morn
ing. And to make the matter still
more explicit it is on record that
the morning the platform came be
fore the convention for ratification
Holmnn, of Multnomah, opposed Ibis
"bogus" plank with all his might in
these words: "I do not believe in a
polyglot platform. The principle of
putting things in the platform that
the convention does not believe is
political dishonesty and willnot get
voles. I will not undertake to say
that the substitute (meaning this
bogus plank) is not wanted by the
convention, but I do not believe in
adopting it because some one else
wants it." Tho convention then sat
down on this olleged "Railroad
Plank," and the plank drafted bj
the platform committee and pub
lished in the Oregonian and other
papurs was adopted without objec
tion. The next thing we hear of
this discarded plank it is used to
elect to the legislature a member of
tbe plttiform committee who assisted
in drafting the real plank ami who
Joined publicly with others in con
demning this bogus thing as alto
gether too radical and impolitic for
Democratic platform. Tun Ciutox
iclr would not willingly write a line
that would wrong the meanest thing
that ever trod the earth, but the
evidence before it compels the belief
that there are some very small pea
nut politicians among Oregon Demo
crats. There is no reason why every man
on the Republican ticket of Wasco
county, from congressman to con
stable, should not be elected. We
Lave the Republican voles to do it,
and there is not a man on the ticket
who is not entitled to the full vote
of bis party. The Chhoxklb has
nothing but kind words personally
foi the Democratic candidates, iiovr.e
of them ere men whom we would
delight to honor in any way outside
of politics. Their fault lies in be
longing' to a party to which the
country owes absolutely nothing
gave the obligation to bury it under
an avalanche of votes at every op
portunity. It is impossible to feel
kindly to a party that is directly
responsible for the wreck and ruin
that followed the election of Clevc
land and that prolonged the wretch
edness by the threat of a wretched
ness still more diie through the
triumph of Bryanism. The country
was never more prosperous than it is
at this moment. It is the patriotic
duly of the voters of the nation to
keep it so, a far ns voles can do it
Every vote cast for Bryanism is a
vote to stop the march of prosperity
and bring back the horrors of '93 to
'96. Wasco county Republicans ill
do their duty by voting the Repub
lican ticket and for every man on it
It is impossible to think otherwise,
From an article printed elsewhere
it will be seen that the Portland
chamber of commerce is about to
take the lead in an effort to secure a
government portago railroad around
The Dalles rapids, and that in Ibe
near future tLe boards of trade and
other commercial bodies of other
towns of the Columbia river valley
will be asked lo lend their assistance
in tho form of petitions and memori
als to congress. The movement
in line with that advocated by Tub
Ciihonici.e. The leaders in this last
movement have come to see that a
boat railway is impracticable; that
a canal is the only permanent im
provement that will meet the de
mands of the future; but that mean
whi'.e, and for years to come, and
while a canal is in course of con
struction, a government portage
road would do more to establish and
maintain low freight rates between
the Inland Empire and the Pacific
seaboard than a half dozen private
railroads or private portages around
The Dalles and Celilo rapids.
The balance of net trade in favor
of the United States during the last
century preceeding the. present ad
ministration amounted to $311,000,
000. In one buudred years that was
the net balance to the credit of the
United States in our trade with the
world. In three years of the ad
ministration of William MoKinley
the net balance as shown by the
books of the United States treasury
is 1,400,000,000. It is 11,100,000,
000 more accomplished in these three
years than has been accomplished in
100 years preceding. This is the
Republican response to Bryanite
calamity bowling, do we want a
When Bryan reads the news, early
in June, of the big Republican vie
tory in Oregon, he will realize the
folly of his recent visit to that state,
says the Globe-Democrat. He made
several speeches in Oregon, and bis
dupes throughout the country have
great hopes on that account that the
state will go Democratic In the elec
tion a few weeks hence. When they
find, the day after the voting, that
the Republicans have gained the
state by a large majority they will
see that their champion is going to
have the same sort of luck that be
had four years ago, only more so.
The Chicago plalform, indorsed
"in whole and in part, in letter and
in spirit," by the Fusion forces of
this state attributes to tho demoneti
zation of silver a "corresponding fall
in the prices of commodities pro
duced by the people." A paily that
affirms that kind of nonsense in this
year of grace 1900 confesses that its
stock of common senso is exhausted.
Uncle Sara will take Porto Rico's
15,000,000 worth of silver in ex
change for $3,000,000 of American
money as good as gold. As the

This be ing a campaign yesr we
must, of course, exiect to euduro a
great deal of dust-throwing and gen
eral muddling on the part of in
terested parlies, siys the New York
Commercial, but there U one thing
about which the couutry should re
main as clear-visioned as possible
lest a great mistake be made, which
once made would be long correcting,
The thing we refer to is the true
nature of the Puerto Rican bill. The
hysterical frame of mind is a very
bad one in which lo examine a
measure of this kind. We may,
some of us, have been more or less
affected by the wild shriek for abso
lute free trade with Puerto Rico as
a fulfillment of our pledges made to
the Puerto Ricans through . General
Miles, and for a season have joined
the clatter which was simply designed
to put the administration in a bole
in this very important matter; but
now, after we have had time to get
thoroughly cool, a mere glance at
this measure is sufficient to show how
much a burden it will be to the
Puerto Rican and how great a breach
of the alleged good faith which some
of the doctors laid clown as our
Some people clamored for absolute
free trade with Puerto Rico. That
is just what this bill affords absolute
free trade nothing short of it. The
15 per cent of the Dingley law rates
provided in the law have not the
slightest margin in them of protec
tion for the mainland producer, and
wre not intended to have. It is
not even a revenue bill, tor the
receipts from its operation are to go
right back to the Puerto Ricans.
Tho only thing saved by the bill is
the principle thst congress has power
to place an important tariff on goods
landed here from our tropical islands.
That principle is fixed by it, and in
it ttiere may yet prove to be the sal
vation of producers here on the
mainland who may require protec
tion against competitors paying their
labor 30 cents a day.

NEW TRAIN SERVICE.
Judge Bennett, in another place in
this issue, claims that the "Railroad
Plank," which is being distributed
among railroad men in these parts,
is the plank that was adopted by the
Democratic state convention and
that he worked and spoke for it in
the convention instead of making a
speech against it, as reported by the
Oregonian. In that case the Ore
gonian should nave been asked
should bo asked now lo rectify the
error, or some one should demand its
rectification in a manner as public as
the error itself. It cannot be possible
that the Oregonian would do Judge
Bennett an intentional wrong by
representing him as opposed to a
measure wbich he claims to have
been instrumental in having adopted.
The question, however, is now up to
A plank in the Chicago platform,
which the late Dcmocrutic state con
vention "indorsed in whole and in
part, in letter and in spirit," reads as
follows: "We arc "unalterably op
posed to monomotalism, (that is the
gol 1 standard) which has locked fast
the prosperity of an industrial people
in the paralysis of hard times."
This is simply Bide-splitting. We
shall probably soon have an amended
version, distributed privately, all
the same as the so-called "Railroad
Plank," with all this sidesplitting
hilaritv left out.

lished between Portland and Chicago
April 22, in which tho O. R. i X., the
Union Pacific and the Oregon Short
Line are interested, will shorten the
through time eleven hours. Train No.
2, leaving Portland at 9:15 a. m., be
ginning on the date named, wii) be
known as the Chicago-Portland special.
Its equipment will be new, making it
fully the equal of any train now in ser
vice from the Pacific coast to the East.
It will consist of a mail car, baggage
car, two chair cars, and a touriBt sleeper.
There will be but one change of curs to
all eastern points. The full time will
be three days through to Chicago, or
four days through to Chicago, or four
days and two hours to New York.
The second train, known as No. G,
will leave Portland at 6:20 p. in., con
necting at East Portland with the South
ern Pacific's overland train from San
Fraucieo, and will carry through equip
ment to Chicago via the Union Pacific
and the Chicago and Northwestern, and
also the equipment for tho Washington
division of the O. R. & N., in csnnec
tion with the Great Northern for St.
Paul. This train will reach Spokane at
10 a.m. A dining car will be furnished
for breakfast into Spokane, and for
dinner on corresponding train leaving
Spokane at 3:45 p, ni. The now sched
ule as arranged will supply the most
complete service ever furnished on the
O. R. & N., as it provides increased ser
vice in Eastern Oregon, where it is
greatly needed, and gives immediate
connection with the Washington divi
sion at Pendleton. At this point there
is a largo interchange of traffic, on ac
count of the various mining districts of
Baker county, the Cueur d'Alene, the
Republic and Kootenai mining camps.
Portland is greatly benefited by this
change, in as much as increased service
is given from Eastern Oregon and Idaho.
No. 2 will arrive in Chicago at 9 :30
a. m. ; No. 0 at 7 :45 a, in., as at present.
The Westbound train out of Chicago,
corresponding with No. 2, is No. 1.
This will arrive in Portland at 4:00 p.
m. The train corresponding with the
eastbound No. 6 is No. 3, out of Chicago.
This will reach Portland at 7:30 a.m.
Westbound train No. 1 will leave Chicago
at 6:30 p. m., and Omaha at 8:20 a.m.
the following day. The time will be
reduced two hours and forty-fire min
utes. No. 3 westbound train will leave
Chicago at 10:30 p. m., and Omaha at
4:25 p. m. the next day.
The service on the Union Pacific on all
these trains include Buffet smoklng
library cars, and dining cars. No. 0
will carry a daily ordinary sleeper to
Kansas City, with change en route to
ordinary cars to Chicago.
