'After the meeting of- Hie Ben Hnr-
inon republicnr club' Friday night,
Hon. W. N. Barrett, candidate for
prosecuting attorney on the republi
can ticket for this district, waa intro
duced by Mr. Eice. Mr. Barrett, with
hia usual calmness, spoke at some
length upon the tariff question, and
produced statistics to prove his state
ments. He said that the republican
party four year ago had promised a
reduction in the tariffs, or import du
ties on foreign commodities shipped
into the United States, and that
promise had been f ullfilled through the
passage of the McKinley bill. It had
greatly decreased the tax on many ar
ticles of general consumption by the
masses of the people, thereby saving
to the consumers a large amouut an
nually. He referred to the jstablih
menlof new manufacturing enter
prises and through the aid to them by
the tariff law the American wage-
earners were far better paid than those
of the Old Country. Next the speaker
look up the monetary question, of
which so much is being, said by the
opposing party, and made a very plain
argument to the effect that in order to
issue greenbacks that would be a legal
tender for all debts, there nruet.be
gold and eilver, coin or bullion in the
treasury of ths Unite J Slates a secur
ity for this' paper money. The mere
fact of the government of the United
States placing its stamp upon a piece :
ot paper (Lies not compel its acceptance j
with a foreign- nation, and without
this interchange of currency our com
merce would be diingeroutdy crippled.
On the other hand a gold or Bilver dol
lar has an intrinsic Talue the world
over, and is recognized by all nations
as the standard money, good for all
debts without exception. This is the
only sound currency the world ever
knew or ever will know. A man may
owe you f 1,000, but if lie has not $1,000
worth of property as security lor that
sum you could not sell his note tor its
fate value. Just so it is with the
greenback, unless there is something
back of it that carries a standard talue
in the markets of the worlU,itia bound
to be below par when you attempt to
use it for purchasing purposes. He
cited the report of Secretary Foster of
tbe treasury department wherein it
shows that there is in the United
siaia trwtnv over 132 rjer capita, and
that there were $23.4o, per capita ic
circulation, a large increase in tbe past
few years, and that the lust congress
authorised the secretary of the treas
ury to purchase a large amount of
silver bullion monthly for coinage pur
poses to be distributed or put into cir
culation through the various chan neis
At the conclusion- of Mr. Barrett's
remarks Hon. Geo. W. McBride was
culled, who made a ehort address, after
which the meeting adjourned.
Following is an extract from last
Sundny's New York Herald's Wall
street article: "Money is, if poasiblo,
a greater drug than ever in Loudon,
lending there at J per- cent, on call
and it is almost unlcndable hero. Yes
terday's statements of New York City
banks shows an important increase of
surplus reserve, notwithstanding the
heavy exports of gold on the previous
Saturday are fully reflected in it, and
from this period until the middle of
July funds always flow to this center.
Although the volume of dealing in
stock last week was no larger than for
the corresponding period one year ago
in round figures 1,600,000 shares
the amount of bonds ran well above
11,000,000, aa against $4,000,000 one
and fortv issues of bonds
J " o ' -
dealt in on the stock exchange show
advances ranging from 1 to 4 percent,
for the week."
Thb voters should beware of
charges brough out in the canvass too
late to be contradicted before tbe elec
lion. If matters of this kind will not
stand the light of investigation they
are unworthy of belief. Information
haa been received that the peoples'
party are preparing for a final volley
of this kind. It is not honorable poli
tics and it in an insult to the intelli
gence of the people to presume that
such a course will win votes. Any
charges made by Tbk Mibt against
any candidate or lot of candidates have
been made in due time for refutation
were there any refutation for the same.
We challenge anyone to contradict
any statement made by this paper in
regard to the amount of taxes paid by
the candidates, or the utterances of the
peoples' party orators.

THE CLATSKAN1B RALLIES.
The great calamity howler of the
peoples' party " movement Genera!
Weaver made this town a flying
visit last Friday, for the purpose of
leaching the faithful in the tenets of
the new faith.
When it was first advertised that he
would address the people of this place,
it was loudly excluimed by the leaders
of the local band of believers that
thern would be three thousand people
here to hear the gifted orator deliver
the new dispensation ; that' only 24
hours notice was necessary to secure
this number. But it seems even the
announcement of his name did not
arouse a sufficient current of magnet
ism to draw together only about three
hundred on this occasion. Two-thirds
of whom were republicans, and the
balance were of all shades- from the
straight-out democrat who sticks by
his party through thick and thin,
down through the various grades of
the latest issues.
The effect upon the members of the
alliance was similar to a wet blanket.
The third parly candidate's noses that
were present lengthened out like the
proverbial moral law, when they saw
the small attendance of people to bear
the distinguished speaker. They real
ized they had over estimated the
trength of tbe third party movement;
Their ranks looked so thin and weak
as to be patent by all observers, aud
to their own dismay. V " ...
Mr. Weaver is to be congratulated
on his remarkable memory. . Those
that have had the pleasure of listening
to him before, can well remember it
was the same song he has sung,' with
out any variation, for many years. Ha
U still stuck on the same peg that he
first struck, when he waa kicked out
of the republican party, and that hia
mind haa not been able to conceive
that the nation haa made any advance
ment since that day. . It was all ot the
past. He advocates no measures that
would be of future benefit to the na
tion, because he knew of none ; neither
could he advance any ; that course waa
beyond his grasp. . He even disap
pointed his followers, as the doctrine
belaid down was as obnoxious to
many of them as the doctrines of the
old parties; Each member- seems to
have a platform of his own, and is not
satisfied if his version' is not adopted
and bis biightness discovered by his
fellowman. And one bit of consola
tion lie gave them lie said that "The
members of the peoples' party are . no
more honest or better than those of
the other parties," and which did not
suit some of the howlers, who have
been claiming to possess tbe im macu
la to righteousness of the earth.
Oregon is a great state for produc
tion. It ia not an uncommon thing
for a man to die his potatoes in the
spring ; the winter being so light that
they are not froxen, Quite frequently
this happens at the tiuio of planting
the spring crop. But a man near Sa
lem, came forward and says that some
time ago he punted early potatoes
which are noWnp large enough to hoe
Last week he started in to plant his
late potatoes, and" at the same time
dig those that were left in the ground
overwinter. Thus he was planting,
hoeing,' and digging his potatoes
all at the same time. Oregon Is, in
deed, a great state.
Thb journalistic anarchist who is al
ways howling about the awfnl condi
tion of the people of this country, and
is trying to educate his Clarke county
readers to believe that they are the
most down-trodden and cinshed peo
ple on earth, will no donbt read with
pleasure that at a big meeting of h
kind in Chicago recently, the motto,
"our children cry for bread" was dis
played, and while the children were
atill crvinir. their father's drank 300
kegs of beer before the meeting ended,
Tk-campaign liars are abroad
the land, and are Killing all kinds of
falsehoods to further their tyrannical
en Is. It is impossible for a man
set of men to tell the truth when they
refuse to recognize the court record
not even being honest enough to look
at the figures placed before them, and
also refuse to investigate for them
On Monday evening, the 23rd cf
May, Mr. Ellis addressed the largest
audience of any speaker that has been
here. ' His address was able, dignified.
aud (horough,and was well appreciated
by his audience. The impression that
he created was one of great respect to
himself, and that he has the ability
to make a good congressman.
When a newspaper misrepresents
the character and ability of a man ia
one respect it is evidence that it will
do so in all. Thinking people should
take this into consideration and not
be too ready to believe every campaign
lie that unscrupulous papers are apt
to publish; The Telegram- says that
Judge Moore is a j us tice-of-the-peace
lawyer with no practice before- tire su
preme court. The statement is utterly
false and a man who would publish it
for the truth certainly does not believe
iu a hereafter. -. Injury to a . man's-
character is one of tbe greatest crimes
to Immunity. It is well known that
Judge Moore has a large practice be-
fore the supreme court and the Tele
gram is well aware of the fact, but ita
deuial of the same will only mislead a
few ignorant people, and among th3
more intelligent make votes for' Mr.
Moore at the June election. -
Thb Astoria Herald is- still harping
on the same old tuae in regard to the
Columbia river this side of Astoria.
In an article headed "To be Expected,'
in that paper hist week, it says:
"When an ordinary fishing boat with
a cargo of spuds for Portland has to
be packed overland around the shoals
and bars, or eulightered between that
town and Astoria, then Portland can
not expect to be a town of any im
portance." The only thing that ia
ailing the Herald now ia jealousy, in
consequence of the safe arrival of the
warships, Baltimore and Charleston,
wbomude the run from Astoria to
Portland without the least obstruction
on their route, aud which ia enough to
convince all sensible people that the
Herald's insinuations are' baaed UpuU
nothing but atillUlt motives,
