FREE TRADE AND FROTECTIVS TAR-
Now, there are two methods ol levy,
ing duties upon iininls. Our demo
cratic frit-ntts wish us to fulh w the
English inetlnxl, which in to levy them
fur one furi80 only namely, to mis?
' revenue. The reprthlican party would
cnlleet duties Upon imports for two
purpoKps; first to raise revenue for the
support of the government, and also
at the eamn time to protect the indus
tries and labor of our country front
: ruinous competition with the poorly
.paid labor of foreign countries. And
- herein is fount) the issue which the
two parties join Upon the tariff ques
tion. The domocratic or English method
is to lay duties upon those articles
which we cunnot produce. Thry
would restore the duty upon sugar,
which we produce but little of andean
produce but little of, on account of
the character of our soil and climate ;
and they propose by this bill to lake
it from wool, leaving our farmers who
raise sheep to compete in our Market
with the wool growers of Australia,
Asia, and the Argentine Republic.
They would restore the duty upon tea
and take it from lumber.buildingsione,
farm products and manufactures. They
would levy a purely revenue duly,
which is always a tax upon the con
sumer, while a protective duty is paid
almost entirely by the foreign importer.
The republicans, on the contrary,
would lovy duties upon such articles
as we cau produce in our own lan',
making the amount of duty equal to
the difference between the price of la"
hor in our own and foreign countries.
And they would utilize our own raw
material rather than bay raw material
abroad. Tims would we raise revenue
to carry on our government and at the
same time maintain our industries
and keep up the wages of American
We do not say to the foreign mer
chant, You shall not sell your goods
in our market. But we do say to him.
You do not fight our battles, pay our
taxes, nor help to develop or enrich
our country. You, therefore, deserve
no advantage over our countrymen in
our market. You pay 60 cents for la
bor where ourempluyers pay 100 cents.
You can consequently lay your pro
duct down in our market at 60 per
cent, of what the American who pays
good wages must receive. Therefore,
to put him on an equal footing with
you, it is necessary thct you should
drop 40 cent on every dollar's worth
you sell to us into the United States
treasury to help us pay our debts and
support our government as an equiva
lent for the privilege of exposing yonr
giods here for sale. This is certainly
fair to you and it is only justice to our
own people. It is what our country's
Life imprisonment in the Oregon
penitentirry does not mean life by a
great deal, if the prisoner has any de
sire to earn marks of credit for good
liehavior. The code defines a life sen
tence as follows : "If for the term of
iifteen years any person has been sen
tenced to be imprisoned for life is re
ported by the supeiintendent to the
governor to have earned two-thirds of
the time allowed for the first five years
of the time that he or she is confined

Washington has secured little, if

Thr press of the country generally

The parlies who have been visiting
ye tditor's apple trees, and who also
broke down the gate, should go a little
slow as there is a law against this kind
of thievery. Read what Lord Timothy
Dexter says regarding the thieves who
stole his fruit:
The following is copied from a "pro
nunciamento" issued by Lord Timothy
Dexter against certain frnit thieves.
The cutting was ban-Jed to a writer in
the Beverly Times by John J. Dennis.
When asked bow long lie had it he re
plied "100 years" which statement he
modified by saying "every since I was
a boy," and it is remarkable that he
can repeat the array of adjectives
"faster'n a hen can pick up corn."
"Whereas I, Lord Timothy Dexter,
having been truly informed that sev
eral audacious, nefarious, infamoui,
intripid, night-walking, garden-violating,
immature, porch-stealing rascals,
all spawn of the devil, and rogues, aud
cubs of Satan, do frequently, villain
ously assemble themselves together in
my garden, surely pipiug, fighting,

duck-egg hunting, and illicit deeds

carious, Capricaneous, Tularnunorinus

or wnatever nation you be, return ye
my fruit and property, or by the gods,

my son Sam to Babylon for blood
hounds fiercer than tigers and fleeter
than the winds ; and mounted on my
horse, Lilla, with catting sabre in my
hand, I will hunt yon through Europe.
Asia, Aftica, and America, until I can
enter you in a cavern under a tree in
Newfoundland, where Beelzebub him
self could not find you.
"Hear ye, taterdemalions, thieves,
vagabonds, lank-jawed and turn-bellied
plebeaus, that if ye, or any of ye, dare
set your foot in my house or garden, I
will deliver you to Charon, who will
ferry you over the river Styx, and de
liver you to the royal-arch devil, Luci

We are very sorry to say that the at

Parents do not seem to realize what a
detriment it is to their children to be
absent from their classes for a single
day, to say nothing of their being ab
sent one or two days a week. They
lose interest, and the most com
petent teacher cannot keep them in
terested. Therefore, if you would have
the teacher advance your children.and
make scholars of them, do not bar
their progress by this one of the most
hurtful devices. ' Chas. Ei.ee y,
