A W0KK1NQMANS LOOiC.
When the Ways and Means committee
was hearing manufacturers tell why Hie tr
lir S(KuUI not be reducel, it happened one
day that a plain working man presesenteil
himself and asked a hearing. Itis name
was Pteaart, his residence Philadelphia,
lie told thecomtxiitee how the demand for
work was falling off, and attributed tli fact
to an apprehension that the duties on all
kinds of goods would be materially reduced.
Congressman Turner thought to throw the
workingnian off the track by alluding to
the haavv tax the workingmen have to pay
on their woolen clothes. To thit Mr. Stew-
" The: duties on all the woolen clothe I
wear In a year could be paid with two days'
wage. How I am losing two days' work
everv week on account of the mere threat
to reduce the duties, a threat which, if car
ried out, would take from each week's
wage an amount thai would pay the duties
on all the woolen clothes that I buy in a
About that time the Ways and Means
CHRISTIAN KNPKAVUU CONVENTION.
Program for the Second Annual Convention at
TJnder this heading the San Francisco
Bulletin discusses the political situation at
length. Among other things it says;
"It looks as II the next political cyclone
would strike with great force the present
administration. The warnings at present
are mostly from the democratic side. The
country is already expressing its disappoint
ment with an eniphysis that cannot be
mistaken. The Cleveland administration
took office with the pron ise to give the
country a greater degree of proserity.. In
six months the securities of the country
bad depreciated more than $'00,000,000.
The customs receipts has fallen off many
millions. The tidal wave that carried the
present administration into power has re
ceded. It has left it hard aground. This
change Is still going on. If democratic
organs turn about and attack the party in
power, what then? It cannot beexpected
that republicans will rush to its support
For six months the party In power has
been on trial. During the critical period
it has done nothing except to create distrust.
It baa a majority in both bouses and a
democratic president If there is any virtue
in these Tacts they ought to give conadence
to the country. But it has followed that
as soon as this clear majority was ascer
tained confidence began to decline. Mean
while it is keeping up its assults on repub
lican principles everywhere.
It is worth while to contrast the attitude
of the republicans toward the present ad
ministration ith that of the democrats to
ward that of the last republican ad
ministration. There is a radical difference.
The Harrison administration came in when
all the resources of the democratic party
in congress was employed to nullify every
measure brought foraard by the republi
cans. The aim was to harrass and discredit
the party in power. The opposition was
factions beyond precedent. The purpose
was to kill every measure brought forward
by filibustering tactics. This fierce party
war baa passed into history. Now
the party in power is asking for the toler
ance and support that it refused to the re
publican administration. The attitade of
the party out of power is quite different.
It is not conspring to wreck the administra
tion, and does not employ any filibustering
tactics to embarras it. It has even gone so
far on one or two occasions as to help pull
it out of the mire.
The administration will need to contin
uously call on the republican! to help save
it from the vagaries of its own platform.
While it is nominly committed to free trade
it would go down in a political cyclone if it
were to carry such a measure into full effect
Democratic organs are to-day asking for a
repubiation of the Chicago platform to the
extent that particular Industries in their
several states must have protection. There
is not, for instance, a democratic organ of
and influence in California that has taken
ground agninstthe protection of fruit, wool,
sugar and other great local industries and
interests. These exceptional cases are oc
curing all over the country. What does It
it mean T Just this, that while the party is
bound by its own platform it has no con
fluence in it. Free trade, as it has been
formulated, could not be carried out to-day
without disrupting the party.
The country is beginning to look once
more to the republicans to save it from the
worst results of democratic rule. The latter
has been looking in the same direction for
similar help. And this change of attitude
has been brought about in a little more than
six months. In this light it is not difficult
to forecast the changes that will occur in
the next three years.
T.O. Eluwobtu, who was formerly super
intendent of the Western J;don Telegraph
company in Sew York, and helped estab
lish the telephone system in -that city, has
recently explained the fact about the ex
piration of the famous telephone patents
"The Bell patent expires," he says, "on
January SO, That ot the transmitter
has already expired. After January 30, l!t,
any one can make and sell Hell telephones.
Manufacturers of the instrument are already
in the field. Circulars are being sent out
inviting subscribers and giving the
terms upon which the telephones can be
furnished. Already sets are furnished as low
$15 each, which is a big dlflerence between
paying $12.50 a month for the simple use
of a telephone and $5 a month for a special
wire. Once buy a telephone and it will
last a life time.
As exchange says: "Those farmers who
are so fortunate as to be out of debt are in
days like these the most independent class
in the country. Even if money is scarce
they have enough to live on, and don't have
to confront the probability of losing their
business slid the accumulations of a life
time of hsrd work in the press of hard
times as is the case with almost every other
business." It it not necessary to qualify
the statement in any way. A farmer ontof
debt is more independent than any other
business man at all times.
The Hillsboro Independent ofj last week
contains the following notice of a publica
tion which has been sent to every editor in
the state: A book has come to this office
well printed and of the most fashionable
binding. On the advertising page is the
announcement ot " Liberty, published
weekly, Pioneer organ of Anarchism in
America." As appears on the title page
this is endorsed by the Oregon Farmers Al
liance, Oregon Knights of Labor, Oregon
State Orange and Portland federated
Trades Assemblv. No comments.
The Press Club of Portland and theciti
zens who assisted them in entertaining the
editors of Washington and Oregon in such
magnificent style are deserving of much
credit for the handsome manner in which
they entertained their visitors. Nothing
was left undone that could contribute to
the comfort and enjoyment of the "press
gang." May their larder alwavs be filled

Th Budget pay Judge McUride a
merited tribute in the following: "There

since Thomas A. McBride was elected judge
of the circuit court in that district One can
now truly say the laws have not been made
for the protection of the criminals and for
the benefit of a few favorites of the court.
AGAINST THE PRE SI LENT
A democratic senator from one of the
northern states was recently discussing the
situation in the senate and from the follow
ing extract from his conversation it Is appar
ent that the democrats are not very sanguine
as to the result and do not take a roseate
view of the siuation. He says it is :
"The darkest it ha appeared since the
bill for the repeal of the silver purchase
clause came to the senate. Further, I think
unconditional repeal ia dead. The worst
part of the whole thing i the situation i
rapidly tearing assunder oar party. Some
thing mutt be done. The man who sit up
at the White House and bv hi refusal to
.listen to anything like a reasonable com-
Wber a democratic state convention in
financially conservative Massachusetts de
clares in favor of a state banking system, it
becomes evident that the party at large is
pretty fully committed to that idea. When
with that declaration is coupled commenda
tion of Cleveland' attitude toward the
Sherman law, there is a strong hint as to
the ulterior purpose of the democratic party.
Tux Columbia Chronicle is authority for
the statement that two farmers in Oregon,
one of whom had hay and the other wool,
were on a trade. They had agreed to trade
ton for ton, even. When it came to the
test the man with the hay backed down.
Tni is not very encouraging for the free
No wonder the president waited a long
time before calling congress together. He
seems in a fair way to wish he iiad waited
a longer time. Well, he will have to "grin
and bear it," but be can get consolation out
of the thought that he docs not have to
listen to all of the free silver speeches.

Perhaps some of our readers would like
to know in what renpect Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy is better than any other.
We will tell you. When the Remedy is
taken as soon as a cold has been con
tracted, and before it has become set
tled in the system, it will counteract the
effect of the cold and greatly leseen it's
severity, and it is the only remedy that
will do this. It acts in perfect harmony
with nature and aids nature in relieving
the lungs, opening the secretions, liquefy
ing the mucus and causing its expulsion
from the aircells of the lungs and restor
ing the system to a strong and healthy
condition. No other remedy in the mar
ket possesses these remarkable proper
ties. No other will cure a cold so quick
ly. For sale by George A. Harding,
