result is that lite price of that article,
as in the case of the steel billets, goes

Is nearly all labor in one form or
aiiothert Nothing! nothing, it is in
evitable) yet when this natural and
only result of the methods advocated
and preached by the democratic parly
and the third-party demogogues comes,
as it has come fct Homesleadi Penn
sylvania, these same demagogues and
some of the democratic hosts and
many editors of the petty class of that
faith, try to raise some kind of a false
try, that tha protective tariff system is
in some mysterious way responsible
for the trouble, when the fact is so
plain that no one can fail to see it,
that if the tariff had not been reduced
in accordance, of partly in the line ad
vocated by these same people, the
price of steel billets would not have
come down because of the excess
shipped here from foreign mills, and
there would have been no reduction
either in the price of steel billets nor
In the Wages of the laborers engaged
in that particular industry, which are
the only ones affected, or whose wages
Wnre decreased i and hence there Would
be no strike at Homestead, nor trou
blej expense, or suffering.
Thin whole trouble is directly attribu
table, and attributable only, to the re
duction of tariff on steel billets, or tak
ing that one little step In the direction
Df free trade. Then who can picture,
In imagination, the horrors of carrying
tout this reduction, as advocated by
tnany democrats and the third party
THS NEED OF GOOD ROADS.
The papers of Oregon and Washing
ton are keeping up the .fight for better
toadsi and it ought to have some good
effect finally. Even the religious pa
pers have taken up the gospel of good
roads. The Portland Baptist thinks
that good roada are of more impor
tance to farmers, and even to busines
men of the cities, than government
ttorehouses and two per cent, loans,
admitting that these are meritorious.
Every farmer should Join the demand
for belter roads, and be willing to helo
build them. A Week, even a month
lout of each year for two or three years
spent in building roads would be one
tf the best investments of time and
labor they could make. The saving of
horseflesh, of wear and tear of wagons
and farm implements, of time in going
to town or irora one place to another
would be incalculably great ; but be
yond that the vastly increased value of
county and farm property, and the
added comfort and ease, Would richly
repay all the efforts put forth. Tiie
legislature has done something towards
iielping to build roads in mountainous
regions, bat the supreme court has
checked its efforts in this di-ection,
Vbkb is not to be regretted, because
Voad legislation was becoming the
foundation for all sorts of objection-
able political log-rolling. The best
Var is for the counties, as they are
now authorized to do, to levy a five
"mill tax for roads, and see that the
funds thus collected are well expended;
and then for every neighborhood, ev
ery settlement, every farmer, every
Tcitizen, to take hold of the work with
pride and seal and public spirit, and
Work out their own salvation.
IT is a mistake to close the world's

Tim Engineering N'ews says; Mich-
igan has for live years past had upon
its statute book a provhioii designed to
promote the use of wide tires upon the
vngons used upon Its highway.- In'
place of compulsory enactment it was
ttoumi'il wise to make tt fnr the pvciini
ary interests of the user of the road
to t:se wide instead of narrow tires, ami
a premium was accordingly put upon
sutJh usrt in the remission of a part of
Iho hlnhway tax. The law provide
that all persons whd shall use only
lumber waohs on the public highways
of tho ali.tw Vfith rims not le.s than
three .inches in width, for hauling
'loads exceeding 800 pounds in weight,
shall annually receive a rebate of one
, fourth of their assessed highway tax,
provided, however, that such rebate
shall not exceed ill any ode year three
days' road tax to any one person. Oit
isons are required to make allldavii be
fore an overseer of highway to the nse
of such Wagone as specified, upon
which affidavit they are credited with
the amount of rebate of their highway
tax. The department of state, of Mich
igar, reports that this legislation has
beert found satisfactory to the peoplj
and beneficial in it results.
C. K. Wilson, of Aberdeen, believes
in the saying, "America for Ameri
cans." He has given notice that here
after no men will lie employed around
his mill who are not oi linens of the
United Stales or had not declared their
intention to become citizens. This is
a good move. It lias been the custom
for many years for null hands from
British Columbia to come down into
Uncle Sam's domain and work at the
different sawmills during tho summer
month at higher wages than obtained
in British Columbia and then take
the money out of the country. Wil
sou's move is a blow at Chinese labor,
and other aliens Who do not contribute
to the welfare of the United States.
Mr. Wilson's ultimatum could be fol
lowed advantageously in mills on the
Mississippi river. Puget Sound Lum
berman. Tub Nashville correspondent to the
New York Times writes : The .Rev. Sam
Jones concluded a series of meetings
here last night. Among other things
in his closing sermon he said, touching
politics : "A fellow may say, '1 would
die for the principles of my party,'
wbeu he would not know a principle if
he were to meet it in the road. If old
Tammany were to go to hell in a body
and knock at the door, the devil would
only let them in one at a time. If he ;
let them in all at once they would
knock him in the head, elect their own
devil to run things to suit themselves.
The editor of the Clatskanie Chief
is one of those peculiar dog-in-the-manger
individuals who seem to think
itis to their interests to beat their con
temporaries out of obtaining a fair
price for work performed. At the re
cent session of the county court for
Columbia county he did his best to
bulidose the comity commissioners in
to disallowing the bill for publishing
the county tax list. Such journalistic
rats should be hunted out of the pro
fession. -Salem Democrat.

The itemmcratic leaders are just he-'
ginning to realize what a bad break
w.ia made by their party in tho house
n defeating tho world's fair appropria
tion ; they are hearing from tho coun
try on the Subject and the mesvagos
they receive are anything but salis
factory. Mr. Cleveland impressed it
upon those democrat V congresKiiien,
who went to New York to hear him
and Atll.it notified of their nominations,
that it would be suicidal for tho dem
oeratic majority in the hotwe to per
sist in its opposition to this appropria
tion in the face of the general public
sentiment in favor of government aid

The credit for this bright hit of dem
ocratic statesmanship ia due to cheese-parer-in-cliiefs
lluliium mill Bayers, of
fetus, and the matter to ft certain ex
tent is in their hands, as they are the
democratic confereeson the part of the
hoiise on that hill, but in spite of the
prrssuro that is being brought to bear
on them they are still stubborn, and if
they can hold the votes by which they
defeated the appropriation in the house
they will brim: about a dead lock that
may extend the session indefinitely, as
the republican senato will iusist that
this appropriation be made before ad
journment. The majority against this appropria
tion was ouly ten, and it is almost cer
tain that when llolimin reports hack
to the house the inability of. the con
ference committee to agree because of
the insistence of the senate conferees
Upon this appropriation, that u motion
to recede from'' its appropriation can
be carried through the hunso by a
small majority. It is greatly to the
credit of the republicans in the house
that every one of the 122 votes cast
against this appropriation came from

JJo one has been able to find the
slightest fault with the president's
nomination of .Mr. George Shiran, jr.,
of Pennsylvania, to till the vaeaucy in
in the supreme court. He conies from
the district entitled to the appointment,
is just 60 years old, has never held
any public office or engaged hi any
other business than the practice of
Liw, and is in every respect fully (null
ified to adorn the bench of the great
est court in the world, as our supreme
court has been justly called.
Hon. Thomas II. Carter, of Mou
tana, who has beeu commissioner of
tho general land office, has tendered
his resignation of that position to the
president, in order ilut he may devote
his whole time to his new duties as
chairman of the republican national
committee. Those who koow him best
predict that he will make a reputation
second to that of no man who ever held
the position, even if he is the young
est chairman the party has ever had.
Commissioner Gaum wishes it dis
tinctly understood that he has no idea
of resigning on account of the demo
cratic attauks made upon him, and the
president is not nor has he at any titte
been even considering the question of
Gen. Kail m's removal. The minority
report made by the republicans of the
committee which has for months been
investigating the pension office is a
vindication of Gen. Kutim's manage
ment, and a strong coudemnatioa of
the democratic conspiracy against his
personal character, which has been so
plain to every unprejudiced person.
