MANUAL LABOR PROSPEROUS.
In almost every railroad station
.between the Mississippi river and
'.he Rocky mouutaios, notices have
:been posted during tie last tbreo
months offering bigu wages for track
bands, says the New York Sun. At
?2 a day it was impossible to get a
.supply of Ibis cheapest grade of
nianual labor. One reason was that
it was easy, in Nebraska especially,
to make from 2..0 to $3.50 a day
shucking corn. Many clerks got
leave of absence to go into the corn
field and woiU for a few days. Now
the was;es of railroad laborers in that
region hav risen from $2 to $2."0,
with board, and the oliauccs arc that
the figures may go somewhat higher,
for the railroads can get few men to
go into the mountains, where the
work is severe in winter. It is only
five years since the president of oi.e
of the great Western railroads said
freely in private conversation that
the time was coming withiu a decade
when the day laborer, especially the
railroad day laborer, would be get
ting 90 cents a da', and would be
glad even of that. The great ad.
vance io the wages of day laborers
and the mistaken views of one of the
great directors of labor in this
country serve to emphasize the fal
lacy of the assertion that the woik
ingman is not getting a fair share.
Next to the Western farmer, who is
making from 75 to 100 per cent clear
profit on what be produces, the
manual laborer seems to be about
the most prosperous individual in
the land. In work on Western rail
roads bia wages have gone up fully
100 per cent. Few other callings
can show such a record.
future, for at any time a straining of
relations may lead - to unfriendly
demonstrations there. That is a
complication created, a dead question
made alive, by the amenders.
There is the further question of
Nicaragua. We must now make a
new treaty with her, and sho must
rrake a new treaty with Great Britain
before we can begin the canal. In
the treaty of 1867 with ber "the
United Slates agreed to extend their
protection to all such routes of com
municHtion ms aforesaid, (meaning
the canal), and to guarantee the neu
trality and innocent use of the same.
They also agree to employ their in
fluence with other nations to Induce
them to guarantee such neutrality
and protection." All that becomes
a dead letter if the amended Ilay
Pauncefote treaty is accepted. A
new treaty must take the place of
the treaty of 1867. But Nicaraugua
also has a treaty with Great Britain
by which she is bound not to grant
to the United States or any other
power any exclusive privileges in
regard to the canal ; and Great Britain
is bound not to permit such exclusive
privileges to be exercised tiy any
power. We must ask these two
powers to bo good cnaugb to oblige
us with a new treaty not containing
the offensive restiiction upon the
exercise of our preference for a war
canal of exclusively American make.
PROTECTION'S LATEST PHASE,
TUE RESPECTABLE ELEMENT.
The Astoria News says: "United
States Senator Simon, who is now in
Portland, is quoted as having made
the statement that Henry W. Corbett
will be elected to succeed Senator
- McBride. Mr. Simon is said to base
his prediction on the alleged fact
that Mr. McBride cannot be re
elected unless be gets democratic
votes, and that be cannot hope for
this support because the Corbett
crowd has "chrystalized" the demo
crats. It is evident from this pur
ported statement of the distinguished
Portlander that the Corbett people
also despair of success without demo
cratic aid. That the democrats will
support Corbett in preference to Mc
Bride is, however, extremely, im
prooahle, as they are not purchasable,
notwithstanding Mr. Simon's state
ment to the contrary. The success
of the citizens' movement in Mult
nomah county was due to the aid
rendered by McBrideites, it is said,
and, if the democrats support a re
publican, he will lu a representative
of the respectable element of the
"Respectable element of the party"
is cood exceedingly good. It shuts

The statement by some of the
press in this state that the only ob
jection that bus been raised to the
selection of II. W. Corbett as United
States senator was that ho was
wealth'. Is erroneous. Several of
the leading republican papers of the
state, outside of Portland, are op
posed to his election, not because be
is rich but because be is the repre
sentative of a ring and, if elected,
would work for the interests of that
ring; therefore he is not the best
msn to represent the whole people of
the state of Oregon in the United
States senate. Another statement,
which is not true, is that the objec-

emanating from populism, etc. There
are surely a few men in this state
beside Mr. Corbett who are success
ful men, and who are as competent
and capable as he, and who are not
owned or controlled by a certain
political faction. True, we want a
capable and successful man to repre
sent us but let us have one who is
free to woik for the interests of the
United States, and the state of Ore
gon; not one who is bound band and
foot to work for a very small portion
of the state. Antelope Republican.
State Senator Daly is out for II.
W. Corbett for United States senator,
on the ground that Oregon needs an
energetic man to represent it in the
balls of congress. Well, this is a
joke! remarks the Astoria News.
Senator Daly says Mr. Corbett will
certainly be elected, which is an
otner joke. Mr. Corbett doesn't
stand as much chance as Mr. Daly.

The American people are paying

foreign ship owners for ocean carry

ocean carrying and thus keep this
money at home. The ship subsidy
bill is a plau to encourage them to
do this. It offers inducements for
the construction and operation of
new ships of American register, giv

such ships under prescribed condi

to offset the higher cost of American
labor, which at present is the chief
obstacle to successful American ocean
steamship competition against the
well-established and small-wage Eu
In other words, it applies to ocean
shipping, the identical doctrine and
principle under the workings of
which our great inland Industries
have been built up that is to say,
the doctrine and principle of pro
tection to American labor and in
vested capital. The democrats used
to tell us that we could never bave
home industries without meeting the
low wage levels of Europe. The re
publican party disputed that asser
tion, insisted upon a protective
tariff, and enjoys today an unqualified
vindication in the form of an indus
trial prosperity never so pronounced,
with wage levels never so high.
What has been done for our factories
and mills can be done for our ship
yards and docks. We can develop
the infant industry without sacrificing
the superior American wage, and it
is tho policy of practical statesman
ship to proceed to do so without
Just think of it! The United
States is today the largest manu
factuiing nation in the world, with
the greatest export business and the
longest coast line, washed by the
waves of the greatest commercial
oceans; yet it does not carry a tenth
of its own enormous and growing
ocean commerce, it has, in un
equalled abundance, every material
necessary for the building of great
ships and a genius for mechanical
achievements well calculated to put
it in the lead of marine architecture
and construction. It bas natural
facilities without limit and inactive
capital in great plentitude. Yet
other nations do its shipping and
pocket the profits, while also in large
measure dictating terms. This situ
ation to Americans of spirit is in
tolerable, and the remedy proposed,
not having been supplanted by a
better, is certainly worthy of a trial.

W. T. Gardner, of the Boys' and Girls'
Aid Society, was in town today looking
alter the case of a young girl of 16, who
had fallen into bad company and had
apparently started on the road to ruin.
The girl, who is a mere child in looks,
is an orphan, her mother haviog died
when she was two years old and her
father when she was seven. She never,
therefore, knew a mother's care, atd

relatives and at other times among
strangers, like Xopsy., "growed" up
rather than was rt'.ttd up.
Coming here eight or ten days ago the
girl put np at one of the bote's and soon
after her arrival took the bell-boy, a lad
of ber own age, into her confidence aod
told him she was without money and
Wanted to find work, either in the hotel
or anywhere where she could earn a
living. The young scrub took advantage
of her situation and, as the girl alleges,
rained ber. Most of the rest of her
story cannot be told in these pages. It
must suffice to say that her visitors be
came so numerous that the matter came
to the ears ot the hotel proprietor and
she was summarily ejected.
After the girl had gone to another
hotel Special Xigbtwatcbman Alisky
heard of tier and reported the matter
to Sheriff Kelly. Mr. Kelly immediately
placed the girl under the care of a
respectable elderly woman and reported
the case to Judge Blakelcy, who wired
Mr. Gardner to come here at once. Un
fortunately for the ends of justice the
girl is past the age of consent and, much
to Mr. Gardner's regret, a number of
well-known young bloods of The Dalles
are epared the disgrace of open exposure
and poseibly terms in the penitentiary.
After a long conference with the girl
this morning, in the preeence of Judge
Blakeley and Sheriff Kelly, Mr. Gardner
had the offending bell-boy summoned
and in presence of the girl read the lad
a lesson that he is not likely to forget
fur many a day. As the girl is too old
for the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society,
Mr. Gardner concluded to take her to
Portland and place her for the present
under the care of a lady who will look
after her welfare. The girl appeared to
be penitent and was perfectly willing
to go with Mr. Gardner, promising that
she would do all in ber power to be a
good girl in the future.

The game between The Dalles ami
Wasco for New Year's day baa fizzled,
owing to Wasco not being able to get a
team together for the game; but The
Dalles will play at that time with a
Portland football team at The Dalles.
This paper did not intend to speak of
it, but since there is to be no game be
tween The Dalles and Wasco, and after
the senseless and brutal attack of the
Wasco newspaper regarding the game
there recently between Wasco and our
home team, it becomes necessary to say
that The Dalles boys have used all hon
orable means to bring about a return
game. This paper has no doubt that
Wasco has good reasons for decliuing to
meet The Dalles again and we accept
them in good faith. However, The
Dalles is ready and willing to meet
Wasco at any time. We will play them
with high school, our first team, second
team, or any old team, crippled or other

the progressive ones. The Athletic and

of our city will doubtless be under the
