Th President's Mcsaafe.
Presidei.t Harrison s annual mes-sage to
cont-'n-ss is a paper that erery voter In the
land should read. Its lucid discussion of
the important questions tU at have concerned
the government during the past year com
mends it to all who wish a clear knowledge
of the internal and external relation of our
country. The year has witnessed an unus
ual number of important happenings of in
ternational character. The message of the
president deals with each in a style that is
plain and concise and with honesty and
In sneaking of the dispute about the
boundary between Venezuela and British
'iuiana. where, it has been understood, the
English were attempting to enforce their de
mands for territorial possession in much the
same manner that had been practiced in Af
rica, the president takes occasion to reassert
the Monroe doctrine. " This government
will continui'"' he says " to express its con
cern at any appearance of foreign encroach
ment on territories long under the adminis
trative control of the American states. The
determination of a disputed boundary is
easily attainable by amicable arbitration
where the rights of the resjiective parties
rest, as here, on historic facts, readily ascer
tainable." Although the friendly oflices of
the United States have not yet resulted In
settling the boundary dispute in question
the utterance of President Harrison may be
understood as a notice to great Britain that
her African methods will not obtain on
American soil, North or South.
( Ths message gives considerable attention
to the new tariff law and the silver legisla
tion. It deprecates frequent changes iu tar
iff regulations as having a depressing effect
upon commerce and finds grounds for judg
ing the operation of the new law to be hen
iicial though it has had but limited trial.
The president is firm in the belief that the
present law is a great step in advance of
previous legislation on the subject. The law
for the purchase of silver bullion has like
wise not et proved what it w ill do and con
gress is urged to give it a fair trial before at
tempting to doctor present legislation. It
is clear that the president is no gold bug.
He is a friend of silver but he realizes that
the money question is one requiring great
delicacy of treatment and he w ishes to ad
vance, the experiments in progress with due
caution, studying the results of each step
and not dashing headlong into untried ex
pedients. The political situation is discussed with
patriotic vigor. The influence of the gerry
mander is declared to be baneful and when
carried to the extent it has been in Michi
gan it is demoralizing and subversive of
good government, bringing, as it does, all
brandies of the government within its
reach. The president points out the dan
ger mid invites congress to deal with the
threa'ening and intolerable abuse. In clos-
in.' 1 e savs : " I he vista that now opens to
us is wider and more glorious than ever be

Tut Coming Century, Portland's new lit
erarv weekly, starts out relying on th
strength of Mrs. Duniwav' nam to sustain
itN ah being the editor Of th periodical.
Th flrt number presents a good ear
ance and has an atlractiv table of contents.
Moat of th contributors will b recognited
as among the active workers in Hi woman
stiffrase cause. Some of those announced
for the future, however, are not identified
with the eual rights movement, among
wtiora is Mia tiigginsou, wn. nam ui an
elenient of strength lo the par. Topub
lish a literary periodical in the Northwest is
an undertaking ol considerable magnitude,
but Mrs. Duniwav does not taka hold of an
enterprise to make a laiture of it.
Tn only par In the Northwest of low
enough morals to sn,:ik lottery advertise
ments through the mails in defiance of law
is a religious hebdomidal published in Port
land, the Catholic Sentinel. On th sixth
page of its issue of tacetuber 10 was a Ham
ing advertisement of a " ratfle" for fourteen
town lots in certain northwestern hamlet
"l chance for 1 dollar," " drawing to take
place at the pastoral residenc," etc. etc. If
it were a wicked worldly paper setting such
a pernicious example we should be Inclined
to denounce it. We suppoe the Catholic
Sentinel is working under a special dtsens
ation. Theki are several prominent names miss
ing from the roll of the present congress.
From the house McKinley, Cannon and
Spinola are gone, the last named
having been removed by death and
the others by politics. But the absent ones
are more marked in the senate. Th tall,
wasp-like Ingalls and the diminutive Kvarts
and Spooncr are gone. Edmunds is not
present to rejieat the Ixnl's prayer aloud
with the chaplain. The erratic Senator
Blair has also passed Into history. And
their places are taken by Pt!er, Hill, Vilas,
Proctor and Gallinger.
What's in a name ? lt one read the fol
lowing names of California winter resorts
and then wonder why the Italy of America
is in such popular favor if he can ; San
Diego, Los Angeles, Coronado Beach, Mon
terey, Ranta Monica, Pasadena, Santa Bar
bara, Alameda, Calistoga, San Bernardino,
Han Juan Capislrano ami San Luis Obispo.
The poetry of such names is alone enough
to attract people. Add to this the reminis
cent poetry of the associations of the gilded
Spanish age and there is an attraction that
Sehatob Mitchell has introduced in the
senate a bill providing for the establish
ment of thirty-eight lights on the Willam
ette river above Portland. There is a pros
pect that the Willamette will receive some
attention in the way of congressional ap
propriations this year unless the democrats
are stricken with a fit of parsimony to con
trast with republican liberality.
Asd now the Hon. Charlie Roliy, the
Portland tavern keeper, ex-postmaster, etc.,
declines the democratic nomination for gov
ernor which no one has been kind enough
to of1er him. The disease is epidemic.
Democratic Speaker Crisp of the house
of representatives w as born in England and
he was a captain in the confederate army.
Ncwr York Advertiser: Now that Earl
Russell lias been acquitted he should be
taken into the baccarat and Cleveland street
set. Ha1 hs been found guilty he would
be still more eligible.
N!W York Recorder: The democratic
party is a craft adrift, rudderless, and with
acrew fighting one another. The division is
about doctrines as well as leaders and spoils.
Can the country trust Itself to such a party?
