United States. Besides these there are
treaties unratified with Nicaragua, Ecua
dor, the Danish West Indies and the
Dominican Republic, from which the in
junction of -ecreey has not been re
moved. The pending agreemente have
been "held up" id the senate because
they are not satisfactory to some of the
millionaire protected interests that
would be affected by them. The pros
pect for their ratification ;is not believed
to be favorable.
In a lecture on international law de
livered by Trof. Jellinck at the Heidel
berg University, he said: "The Span
ish American war was of Immense im
portance in tho future development of
international law. America, whose
policy previously had been 'to abstain, in
accordance with the principles of the
Monroe doctrine, from the affairs of
European governments, now abandoned
that position and became sue of tho pow
ers. 1 he people are divided into sup
porters and opponents of the present
policy, and if the former, wha.ha-a ben
called imptrialists, succeed the organi-
zation of the government will ine.-itably
become similar to that of European coun
tries; individual liberty the ritrhts nf
each particular man will be sacrificed
in securing a strong central direction."
As the shifting policy of the republi
can party with regard to pending recip
rocity treaties is a matter of concern to
every one taking an interest in public
auairs, it Is at lemt worthwhile to as
certain where, iu respect to this policy,
the government stands. The ponding
treaties, from which the injunction of
secrecy has boon removed, provide: For
reduction of the duty on sugar, molasses
and asphalt from the British West In

Quite a large number of prominent
democrats of Clackamas county have ex
pressed themselves as being favorable to
a straight democratic ticket In prefer
ence to an independent ticket.and argue
with a good deal of truth that many of
those favoring an independent move
ment are after office "pie". They alto
say truly that the democratic party is
the only reform party that can expect to
to get its principles adopted by the peo
ple and eventually inculcated into the
laws of the country. These are facts,
but still many who have been voting
with us object to the name and hence
will not vote such a ticket. While we
believe the laborer is worthy of his hire
we till think that such a ticket pledged
io a radical reform in county affairs.such
as the reduction of the salaries one-half
would be a winner. A prominent ab
stracter guarantees to assess the
county for $2500 per year in as good
shape as at present. It now costs over
$9000. The writer is satisfied he could
make money by taking a contract to fill
all the offices of Clackamas comity tor
less than ball the present salaries.
According to reports Henry E. Stevens
and J) . t,. Sleight will be the nominees
for recorder and clerk on the republi
ticket, although Justice McAnulty stands
a good show for clerk.

Harl Engle, of Molalla, has been men
tioned in connection with the democratic
nomination for sheriff, and if he should
consent to run he would make the best
run of any we know.
The opinion of most of the Deonle is
that George W. Grace ia the man that
will make the best run far senator
against Brownell. He is not a politician
and would only accept if his nomination
were unanimous. C. D. Latourette could
have secured the nomination if he had
taken a prominent part as joint chair
man two years ago. Dr. Beattie. of Ore
gon City, seems to be the choice of the
Molallaites for senator. He is a fighter
when it comes to politics.
