The IndiiBtrlal world In already be
ginning to rejoice and the atmosphere
of uncertainty is beginning to clear
.away us the result 'of the Intense
' earnestness on the part of the admin
istration to hasten the mar action on
the bill revtelng the Urll'f schedules.
In a general way thosi largo Interests
most deeply affected, are Informed
what the report of the eomniltteo will
be. While this report will not In every
Jmtlance be accepted, It will In the
great majority of schedule. It Is an
nounced that there will ne no change
on sugar, which atfecfj millions of

there bo any chnnge f-n lend or cop

our history, will be placed on the free
The lumber schedule which un
doubtedly affects more capital and la
..fcor than any oilier Interests of the
Pacific coast, is practically settled be
tween the $l and 13-schedule; the M
chedule. It In thought, would be ei l
OUK to the coaat mllln, but if the coin
promlse nf $ 1. 50, which l now being
considered favorably, prevails, our
nillla will proceed as of'yoro.
The entire schedule will ahow a per
centage of reduction as compared with
our present tariff law, and there is no
flueetlon but this Is expected by the
people. . What the people and business
demand Is that congress will act with
peed, the uncertainty of the tariff
stagnates business, untll the schedule
J fixed no manufacturer or business
man will place orders for goods, the
knowledge that the tariff was to be

been known that congress would be

tariff has been the cause of industrial
' Vn business house could afford to
place future order until It was known
what the price would be, and manu
facturers could not guarantee prices.
Ptocks are very low in the Vnlted
Ptntes a a consequence, nnt Just as
coon as the schedules are fixed, and il
1s known that they will remain so
' fixed for several years at least, the
wheels of Industry will revolve as they
have not for the past IS months, and
th" sprl'ift- and summer of 1 '. will be
looked hti k upon as the beginning of
..another p r!. d t.f general Hctivlty.
Congress fviMy realizes lt rosp-'mslbM-Ity
and there have already been fre

and Speaker Camx.ti all .lth a vi-w to
prevent flllbone:ing and delay.
Population eciual to the city of I.a
Grande or IVndleton or The Dalles or
a dor-en other titles or Oregon, is
pouring Into our atate every six days
and will continue at least until May
first. These peoplo all bring some
money, a great many with sufficient
means to purchase farms, or go Into
buslnesH. This new money will add
greatly to our prosperity the present
year. ' ' .
It Is pleasing to note that our sis
ter republic, Cuba, Is' taking a higher
national moral plane. A bill has been
passed prohibiting cock fights, except
during the months from November to
May, and then only on Sundays and
holidays. A few more generations and
