The Portland Teleirram imagine that it
is railed upon to defend democratic "princi
ples" no matter what sacrifice of sense or
t-atb such defense entails. Some tlays ago
ii asked why it was that there had been in
stances of wage reduction in protected in
dustries since the enactment of the McKin
ley law while there had been not a single
instaiicc of increase. The En'teipuisi de
nied the truth of the statement implied in
the question and cited the Telegram to ill
Mario's of wan increase which it could eas
ily TeriV. Without attempting to establish
its claim in this respect the Telegram re
plies by questioning the truthfulness of the
EsTKKrusE's statements. In other words it
does n't believe that there have been any
advances in wages in protected industries
since the JlcKiuley law went into operation.
The Telegram is welcome to its own sweet
democratic contempt of the truth. If it
were not so it could not be democratic. The
American Economist, quoted by the Extu
Fltsiand which the Telegram affects to dis
believe, is a eriodira! giving acial atten
tion to the effects of the McKinlev tariff. If
it were a periodical published in the inter
est of free trade the Telegram and its dem
ocratic contemporaries would at once accord
it the hhrhest repntability. But whether it
is reliable or not, when it affords every
reader the means of verifying its statements
there Is no sense in denouncing it until its
claims shall he found to he untrue.
The Telegram said there had not been an
instance of wage increase in protected in
dustries under the operation of the XlcKin
Jey law. That is. of course, a very foolish
claim, foolish because ridiculously untrue.
If the Telegram
mieli that if it were called upon to alee! the
house would choose a democratic president
and the senate would etect a republican vice
president, Thua the republicans might
have a plurality In the electoral colley ami
still lose the president, for It requires ma
jority in that unique body to make a legal
The democrats recognise the people's
party followers as their ablest assistant be
cause the new faith attracts some republi
can voters who would he shocked at the
idea that they were in any way aiding the
denux'ratic party. SVinoeralic success de
pends more on the weakening of the repub
lican force than in accessions to Its own
ranks. It is by no means impossible that
the democrats and people s party presiden
tial electors, if they shall have a majority
by combining, may effect a combination in
the electoral cottyp that shall split the tiokrt
and defeat the republicans. A democrat ic
president and a people party vice presi
dent would lie the logic of such a trade.
Both parties would teel victorious if they
should be able to down the republicans.
A ctatTtaS has been isoued by the TrafhY
Association of California indorsing the es
tahlrshmenlofcoinvethig cliperaia1 steaiH-
shipliiies between Sew York and Sua Prate-

giance to local interests and have, as it were.
created in.unectra in the minds of biwi-
ness men. Trust is destroyed in this friend
ship of the past and new enterprises deserve
te be encouraged. Only by competition can
the ancient Duressor of this coast's hard-
won advantages lie brought to terms. The
thing that every business man should insist
upon is competition along every outlet and

"THaproteuheUrirt is a blighting bur
deti on labor, and the higher the tariff the
heavier the burden. Protection is solely
for the benefit of the capitalist and monop
olist." shrieks the I'oiiiand Telegram, It
i a regular old-fashioned bourbon yell. To
find itself betrayed into arguing a party
question so alarms our esteemed contempo
rary that it must give utterance to these fa
miliar scare phrases to quiet its nerves. We
would like to see the argument the Tele
gram would advance to show that free trade
iv on Id benefit lulxir in this country.
Th awkward combination, Cleveland and
Stevenson, is enough to beat the ticket. The
enthiisium of the most devoted crowd would
i evaporate while the people were twisting
their tongues around the hexaiuetrlc mon
strosity, Cleveland and Stevenson. It is
ahsolutelv out of the question to cheer that
combination in hot weather.
Tb great and decisive reason for the nom
ination ol M'hitelaw licit was that, as min
ister to France, he worked tuoctssfully to
oi-cu new markets for American grain and
pork, and thus made himself a peculiarly
good representative of the doctrine of reci
Some sacri.llcea have to be .made to hold
the market of th world. KngUud, which
ha some advantage over other Kurqen
nations in the way of machinery, capital
and transportation facilities, finds that to
hold her own in the Here competition go
ing on she must reduce wages to the lowest
point, Th proves of reduction must tie
slow to avoid collision with labor organiaa
lions, Apimrently th cotton manufactur
ers have t.iade a somewhat too heavy re
duction, as th federation of masPor ootton
spinners hav met it with a lookout, which,
It is said, will withdraw TtM.ftO operative
from the mills. Th English manufacturer
is, in fact, between two II res, If he dees not
reduce th rales of labor other nations
whose Inlaw seal is lower will lake from
from him the markets of th world. If he
doe attempt reductions he is met by or
ganised, lalnir. Competition has, in fact,
brought the world's markets to a (mint at
which they are not Worth very much. If
men and women have to work at starvation
wage to hold these market it i only a
question of short Urn when lalnir w ill re
bel. Th last straw is no heavier than oth
ers, but it breaks th camel's back.
Most siniHoditle are now very cheap,
Present price do not afford a good living
for the labor that goes Into them. There la
a general complaint of over-production,
when th real cans of Imnhle it under-con-tinnption,
1-abor i paid so poorly that It
is barely poaaibl to buy th neeeasarie of
life. All over Knrope laborer are forced to
be content with the absolute necessaries of
life. In th face of those conditions there
ar people who urjre upou the United State
th policy of ojeniag our market to lh
cheapest tnauulaciuters, and to auier into
competition with the cheapest manufactur
ers for the markets of th world. In the
long run the cheapest manufacturer Is th
one who employs the lowest priced labor.
Such condition as machinery, tranorta
lion facilities, capital a. id method of busi
ness in time becom equalised, and leav
th real lest of cheap prodnctiuu to labot.
I'uder a protective tariff the I'niled States
at least controls th home market. Ity
means of duties we ran make foreign good
ctivt as much as our own goods, mad with
higher-priced lalmr, cost. Foreign market
area matterof seeundary iniartance. There
are sum kinds of commodities which,
owing to patented machinery, we can pro
duce at leas cost than foreign goods ot Ilk
quality can be produced, These we may
send wherever we find a market for them,
but the hemic market is and for a long time
will lie the main reliance of home manufac
turers. -San Francisco Call.

Tb Fourth of July celebration in Oregon
City will be the most unique in the state.
The single feature of the illumination of the
falls will be an attraction greater than any
will write to the Camden 1 uUier towu in tne s,a, can oftft.
Woolen company, manufacturers of dres
goods, Camden, Maine, it will find that an
increase of ten ercent. has taken place in
wages in thatactory. The Hawthorn Mills
company, manufacturer of cassi meres and
felts at Glenville, Connecticut, have in
creased wages fifteen r cent. Alfred
Dolge, felt goods, Dolgeville, Sew York, has
increased wages twenty per cent. At the
Baltimore & Ohio machine shops, Graf
ton, West Virginia, wages have been ad
vanced twenty per cent. B. Rowitzer, wag-
pns, i tiasenurg, Wisconsin, raised wages
ten per cent. The Lake Superior Lumber
company at Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, has
advanced wages fifteen per cent. Close &
Christie and W ilk ins & Close, glove manu
facturers of Mayfield, New York, hare
raised the wages of their employes fif
teen to twenty-five per cent.
We might fill columns with examples of
this kind. The bureau of labor of New
York stale reorts 1!M1 instances of increased
wages for and 2,05 cases in which the
hours of labor ere shortened while it re
cords but 441 cases of wage reduction. The
report of the Illinois labor bureau shows
that wages in thecoal mines of that state
were higher m 1801 than before in four
years. In all these cases the increased wage
was in protected industries and since the
operation of the Me Ki nicy law.
It would be as untrue to say there had
been no wage reductions as to say there had
been no advance in wages. The labor mar
ket is subject to fluctuations as well as any
other market. Even free trade Britain ex
periences these changes. No one of sense
supposes that a "robber" tariff or any other
kind of a tariff or absolute free trade will es
tablish, wages at any certain figure and
keep them so. But American wages aver
age higher under the protection of the Mc
Kinlcy law than wages in any other coun
try, and they are being sustained, not de
pressed, by it. If the Telegram would think
for itself, instead of accepting the cant
phrases of the party as its gospel it would
not make such ridiculously untrue statements.

A CHICAGO DRINKING 90NO.
Tbe Presidential Election.
Notwithstanding the fact that republi
cans have even more confidence than usual
in the success of their national ticket this
year there are elements in the campaign that
make it an unusual one. The comparative
strength of the republican ticket is admitted
by most fair minded people of all parties.
Even democrats will concede that Harrison
will surely carry more states than will
Cleveland. He will get a larger electoral
vote than Cleveland will.
The element of greatest uncertainty is the
people' party Tote. If that party should
carry tw or three states the election would
probably be throwrr to congress. The pres
ent political complexion, of that, body U

Frank Leslie's Weekly: The national re
publican convention has justified the ex
pectations of its great constituency. Dis
regarding the clamor of hostile faction, and
refusing to lend Itself to schemes which had
no higher motjve than a sense of personal
grievance, it committed the party standard
to the man who four years ago carried it to
victory, and who in this contest will, as
we believe, prove again the successful lead
Louisville Courier Journal: Beyond any
question, the president is the strongest man
the republicans could have put in the field.
Milwaukee Sentinel: The representative
organization of the party Judged, and acted
upon its judgment, as correctly as In the
cases of Lincoln and Grant. There is no
question or doubt as to the quality shown
by President Harrison in the conduct of the
executive office. ,
Harper's Weekly: Mr. Harrison is un
doubtedly a good representative of his party.
H is a high protectionist, he favors a force
bill and he is sound uwn th currency. He
is a ready sieaker, with an unusual gift for
brief, occasional speeches. His administra
tion, while it is discredited with the circum
stances of the appointment ol the postmas
ter general, and with it violation of the
pledges both of the party and ol the presi
dent himself in regard to civil service re
form, has been generally acceptable to his
party, and the opposition to his renonilna
tion has come from those who wanted mora
patronage than they received. It Is un
doubtedly the strongest nomination that
could hav been mad.
New Orleans New Delta: Aa between the
two men, Blaine and Harrison, there cannot
be, in our Judgment, two opinions as to
their strength. Harrison is a much stronger
man than Blaine, and he is going to be a
good deal harder to beat than Blaine would
have been. In the first place his personal
record is a clean on; there are no personal
scandal connected with him. He ha giv
en the country a good administration,
viewed from a republican standoint, and he
has been true to his friends.
Chicago Herald: The patriotic people
of the United States, without regard
to political affiliations, will leel like
rejoicing at the president's success.
It is a triumph of decency over dishonesty,
of candor over duplicity, of conservative
common sense over fatuous idiocy. If it
shall be decided in November that the coun
try must endure a republican president for
another term, then the country may con
gratulate itself that the choice of the Minne
apolis convention was Benjamin Harrison.
