8t. Helens, August 6. 1892.
NOT A QUESTION OF POLITICS.
We regret to notice that tome of our
demooratio contemporaries are treating
the Homestead incident in a partisan
fashion, for which there is no exouae,
They assume that Mr. Andrew Carne
gie and his associates at Homestead
have been engaged in an industry pro
tected by the tariff, and because a dis
pute as to wages has arisen between
the employers and employed, proteo
tioa is responsible for the Homestead
murders and mischiefs. In congress,
too, oertain .persons who suppose them
elves to be democrats have insisted
upon this view,
. If strikes were never heard of in un
protected industries, if, iu fact, the
greatest strikes in the country had not
occurred in unprotected induatres like
the steam railroads and borse railroads,
if free-trade England was not a coun
try of strikes, and if all these facte
Were not known to everybody with ed
tioatton enough to read 'large print,
these assumptions might be worth con
tradicting. As the oase is, they are so
far-fetched and wildly absurb that we
fear they will bring discredit upon the
democrats in the .national campaign.
This is not a question of partisan
politics; it is deeper than that, for it
goes to the very heart of social order
and the preservation of all that has
been won for civilization. The demo
cratic politicians and newspapers that
lire trying to obscure the real question
re doing all in their power to injure
the demooratio party.
The New York Advertiser furnishes
the following biographical sketch of
the four presidential candidates:
It can" be said of President Harrison
that he wears a hat larger than Cleve
land (7 i) and a collar half a site smaller
(16J). A No. 6 shoe fits his foot, while
Cleveland finds a t ample, despite
his extra weight. Mr. Harrison's right
pedal extremity met suree 9 inches.
Like the third Napoleon, bis legs are
short and his body long. Before it
grew gray his hair and whiskers were
dark brown. , His eyes are of the same
color and there is a suggestion of a
quint about them, due possibly to
weakness caused by intense, applica
tion. He dresses plainly, never pays
over $50 for a suit of clothes, and al
ways has his trousers of a different
color from the coat and vest. He likes
black neckties and good cigars both
. small and first class. He is the son of
a farmer, belongs to the Presbyterian
church, was graduated from collego
and has been a lawyer, soldier and
politician. He is of medium height,
and Indiana claims him as a favorite
on, but he was born at his distin
enished grandfather's home, North
Bend, Ohio, August 30, 1833. He has
Voted the republican ticket every since
the days of Fremont and Dayton. It
Should be added that he never wears
bnt one style of color turndown
made by an old Indianapolis friend
and that he has a pigeon-toed ten
Grover Cleveland is the son of a
minister and a native of New Jersey,
having been born in Caldwell, March
18, 1837. Like Harrison he does not
despise a good cigar and is not averse
to a glass of wine. He wears a 1
derby hat and a No. 17 standing collar.
His face is adorned with a mustache,
and his hair is thin and brown, now
turning gray. He is a great lover of
fruit, eggs and buckwheat cakes, and
the chief thing that arouses his wrath
is the frequent renewed attempts to
make Mrs. Cleveland and Baby Suth
prominent factors in the political cam
paign. He had a f air ed ucation , clerked
in a village store, went to Buffalo, pub
lished a book on short-horned cattle,
studied law, was selected assistant dis
trict attorney, and after that bis career
is a familiar one to the Amerioan peo
ple. He has made and saved money,
nd his wife is also said to be worth
f 500,000 in her own right. Mr. Cleve
land has always been a democrat and
n attendant of the Presbyterian
James Baird Weaver, the people's
party candidate, doesn't smoke, drink
xr swear, vn one occasion, while a
soldier, he did curse, but after the bat
tle was over he publicly apologised to
the regiment for his profanity. Five
times he has been a congressional
'nominee and this is his second race
' for the presidency. He has been what
'opponents call an "agitator" for fifteen
yean. He wears -turndown collar
and white necktie, and prefers a frook
'coat, close-cut vest and nncreased
trousers to any other style of -outward
dornment. He is the son of a farmer
and was bom in Ohio, June 13, 1833.
After "doing the chorea" he studied
law evenings, bnt when twenty years
'old he went to California. Even then
lie was a greeubacker for he refused to
hunt for gold, end going to Iowa he
'aeoared admission to the bar. He was
soldier during the war, a lawyer and
Vepablican politician until 1877, and
after that a free lance. As an advo
cate of paper hionoy aud various re
forms he has spokun in every state of
the union. He has been in congress,
has written books, done newspaper
editorial Work, is a devout Methodist
and has a Wife and six children, be
sides several grandchildren. Que of
his sons-in-law it an editor and a Clev
land boemer, but, outsido of politioa,
thinks "Papa Jim" is as "good as they
make 'em." .
Like Harrison, Goourul John Bid'
well, the prohibition candidate, glor
ies in full whit kers. He wears a No
15 standing collar, is quite gray, hut
neutral blue eyes and is a native ol
New York, where he was born August
5, 1819. When in congress a quarter
of a century ago he was a wine grower
and an advocate of wine-making, bui
he has changed all that since, and now
not a grape dare sprout on his mag
nificent California ranch. He ha
taught school, was a Pacific-eoast pio
neer and served in the Mexican war
and the California militia during the
civil struggle, lie has been a miner
and farmer, has affiliated with repub
licans and democrats, has been a mem
ber of the state and national legisla
tures and now, although more than
threescore and ten, doesn't look more
than fifty years of age. His neighbors
like him. and in every respect he is a
vigorous old man.
Ws admire a frank, clear-cut demo
cratio newspaper, and the harder it
hits the better it suits us ; bat a hybrid
newspaper, an "Egyptian mummy,1
man or newspaper that has not grit
nor grace euough to be a partisan, has
not bravery nor honesty (political)
enough to be a patriot. You never
know such a newspaper ; you can never
trust it. As an educator it is cot re
liable ; it is just as liable to teach that
the earth is flat as a pancake, as, to
teach its rotundity.
Cokqkess is acting childish in regard
to the world's fair appropriation. This
enterprise was inaugurated by the gov
ernment, and it should be sustained
and made a success. No doubt money
has been badly used, and will continue
to be, but the necessary means to make
the fair a success should be supplied
The election for state officers oc
curred in Alabama Monday. The con
test was between the democrats with
the republicans and people's party
combined, the latter naming the ticket.
But the usual democratic majority
prevailed, showing that the South
still remains solidly for that party.
Governor Jones, democrat, is elected
by from 40,000 to 50,000 majority.
The following has been compiled
from the official census reports and
is being run by some of our exchanges
at the head of their editorial columns
in place of the presidential ticket. It
takes up less space and expresses the
state of the political barometer quite
as well as would the names and pic-
tares of the candidates :

Little jags of gin,

Tho first teachers' institute held by
the new county superintendent com
menced in Conyers' hall, Clatskanie,
on Monday evening, August 1st. Some
twenty-five teachers and applicants
for certificates were present at the
opening session. Upon calling the
meeting to order a selection of instru
mental music was given by the or
chestra of four pieces consisting of
organ, cornet, violin and guitar by Mr.
and Mrs. E. C. Blackford and Messrs.
Fabrique and Shourds. These orches
tral selections were frequently rendered
during the different evenings, and were
greatly enjoyed. After an invocation
by Bev. Brown a very neat address of
welcome was given by E. W. Conyers,
Which Wat responded to in a few words
by the county superintendent. After
music Miss Maud Bryant recited "The
Wreok of the Hesperus." This was
followed by the reading of a paper by
Rev. F. J. Brown on "The benefit of
institutes," which whs a thoughtful
and carefully prepared production.
County Supt. Clueton then addressed
the teachers on making the best of
piesent opportunities for improve
ment, aud plead for earnestness in
Tuesday morning. A little time was
spent in vocal music, after which W.
II. Powell gave au illustrative talk on
arithmetic, followed by Mrs. Keasey
on primary reading and spelling. The
disoussiou of these topics occupied the
Tuesday afternoon. Prof. Hodge
led the class on grammer occupying
the first hour. Prof. W. A. Wood oc
cupied it part of the next hour on study
of history which was followed by ques
tions and a discussion oi the subject.
Prof. R. S. Hatton followed with physi
ology as a topio, and seemed to have
prepared himself to go into a very
general investigation of the subject,
illustrating it by some objeot lesson
in the shape of a bone of meat and
some chemical experiments. Upoi
request of Mrs. W. H. Conyers, local
president, Rev. F. J. Brown presented
the matter of suitable representation
at the world's fair urging those present
to interest themselves in the matter.
Tuesday evening. The ball was
crowded to hear the evening exercises.
After vocal musio and an orchestral
selection, Miss Maud Hendersou read
an interesting paper on "Why I like
teaching," followed with a recitation
by Miss Jennie Myers. In the absence
of A. B. Gordon, his topio, "Slighted
duties to-day failures tomorrow," was
discussed by Rev. Brown, Dr. Hall,
and W. H. Powell. Following this
came a recitation by Miss Miiurea
Boyle that wan highly appreciated,
The topic, "Proper incentives to study'
was not discussed in the absence of Mr.
Elrey, who was to. read a paper on the
subject. Another very excellent reci
tation by Mrs. E. C. Blackford, fol

visited here last Sunday. He addressed
the Canaan Repnblican Club and is credited
with an excellent speech, in which he pre
sented a powerful arirament in favor of
protection for home industry, which was
listened to by an attentive audience.
C. L. Smith is having a neat residence
built on his place, in fact one of the finest
in this neighborhood. Mr. Cook, of Port
land, is doing the work and proves himself
to be a first-class mechanic.
E. M. Wharton has the foundation for

grand improvement to this neighborhood.

from a limb.
The ladies of Canaan held a box sociable
one week ago last Wednesday evening for
the benefit of the school. The directors
bought a set of apparatus and the ladies
proposed to swell the funds, which they
done in an excellent manner. A box so
ciable is not altogether a desirable enter
tainment, especially when you do not know
who is bidding your lack, although is an
enjoyable one, as was the case when the
fellow thought be was bidding on a young
lady's box, which proved to be a married
woman's. Entire harmony prevailed dur
ing the evening at the hall, tbongh some
load words were used outside, which sbonld
net have been the case. The entertainment
proved a beneficial one, netting about $10.
Canaan Repnblican Club.
July 31, 1892.
The club met at the usual hour (2
o'clock p. m.), the house being hand
somely decorated by the ladies with
flowers and evergreens, while the
speaker's stand was ornamented with
one of the choicest bouquets of the sea
son. The house was so crowded that
the wagons had .to be resorted to
for seats and chairs to accommodate
the audience. Alter the bouse was
called to order, all business was sus
pended, and the crowd listened to a
lengthy and able address on the tariff
question by Hon. Norman Merrill, rep
resentative-elect, of this county.
