THE HEAL ISSUE.
The constitution of the United States and
of ail of the states in effect guarantees to
every citizen of the country life, liberty and
the peacable posession of proerty, which
may not be taken from him except by due
process of law. These guarantees are the
basis Of society and government. They are
as essential to tbe laborer as to the capitalist
or corporation. Without their application
in all the walks of life and business, anarchy
must reign. The contra of this guarantee
of the fundamental law is that lawbreakers
and criminals must be punished.
The principles here enunciated are the
real oasis or me strike which is now so
seriously agitating the country, and not as
is so often avered the difference between a
manufacturer, owner and operator of sleep
ing cars and bis employees. Tbe country
at large cares very little about theditferences
between Pullman and his employees, ex
cept that it would be pleased to have the
laborers receive high instead ol low wages.
But every citizen of tbe United States is
directly and intensly interested in having
the laws upheld and the authority of tbe
government respected, by which means only
can the guarantee of tbe constitution and
laws be secured to all citizens.
The striker at Pullman unquestionably
had the right to work or not so long as he
does not cause another to suffer by his acts,
but no striker had the right to prevent any
other man from taking his place or the
owners of property from making such use
of as seemed to them best so long as it was
not used unlawfully to abridge or injure
tbe rights of others. Tbe history of the
present strike so far as it has progressed is
similar to all others of any magnitude.
Workmen have first quit, then pre
vented by persuasion or force others from
taking tbeir places which is in tnm fol
lowed by destruction of property and in
jury and possibly death to those whoop
posed them. When the malignant or scute
form described in tbe last clause is reached,
laws are broken and society is oppressed.
It then becomes the duty of the govern
ment to take the matter in hand and see
that the laws are obeyed ami the rights of
property resriected peacably if can be done,
forceably if necessary. If this is not done
government becomes anarchy and liberty
delusion. In the existing trouble the strikers
in many instances ignored tbe mandates of
the government which coupled with riot
anb arson on the part of themselves and
their sympathizers made it tbe duty of the
administration to see that tbe laws were
obeyed and society and proerty protected.
In the performance of this duty every law
abiding citizen should assist, morally at all
times, and physically if need be. Duty to
Himself,, bis family, society and the govern
ment demand that he do all in his power
to enforce the laws and to secure to all peo
ple me noeriy guaranteed by our gov
ernment. To do other than this is to san
ction, aid and abet discord, strife and law
lessness. Already has the spirit of opposion to law
passed the bound of salety. Property has
been destroyed, blood has been spilled,
officials in pursuit of duty reviled, tramp
led upon and maltreated, and the good
name of the republic thus brought into
disrepute both at home and abroad. It is
time lor foolish and irresponsible talk about
the oppressed Pullman employees to give
way to the sober second thought of our peo
ple, which places the fair name of the Ameri
can republic and the laws above personal or
So long as strikers and their sympathizers
are violating the laws of the country, they
are not entitled to consideration or sy m pathy
Two wrongs do not make a right and no
cause or class is entitled to success which
indiscriminately tramples upon the rights
of others to accomplish its ends.
In a recent interview with Uovernor-elect
Wnt. P. Umi, published lit the t'regonian,
be among other things says:
" I, by no means, consider that I shall
take up lighter and more agreeable duties
when I enter upon the governorship. I do
not look forward to an easy time. It Is evi-
dent that the coming administration, to he
in accord with the hopes and wishes of the I on It
The following, coming as It does Irom the
staunch organ of the democracy, the New
ork Sun, Is extremely suggestive:

by the majority to be done.
Have the promises hewi keplf
Yes; kept in the background, where they
can't be got at.
What are these promises?

evidence of things not seen.
The same, hut the works are rusty.
Who is doing this?
The three Cs.
The three Cs?
Yes; Cuckoos, Compromise and Cleve

No, no, no!
Why don't they spit on their hands and

Their bauds are tied.
Can'l they kick?
They ran and they do.
1'ih's it avail nothing?
I little. Hut wait.
Is there no halm in (iilead?
If there is, the Wilson hill has cot a dis
people, must be conducted with the closest
economy and highest business prudence.
' The times demand retrenchment of the
public expenditures and alleviation of the
puoac Duruen oi taxation. I'ublic appro
priations should tie confined strictly to the
public wants. The republican party has re
ceived its directions from the people on
these subjects, and I shall do my duty in
carrying out the pledges of the party.
" My idea is that public appropriation
bills should require to be presented to the
house at least ten days before adjournment
of the legislature. Opportunity will thus
be given to scan critically every item and
prune the proposed expenditures down to
the minimum. I am disused to think,
also, that the governor should be invested
with po"er to disapprove any item in an
appropriation bill, and, indeed, with au
thority to annul any provision in any bill
that in his judgment is vicious, or harmful,
or ill-advised, or which for other sufficient
reasons should be stricken out. I suspect,
however, that a constitutional amendment
will be necessary before the desired author,
ity can be reposed in the executive.
" I think it would be a judicious step Id
the direction of economy if a chaise were
made in the fee system, so far as it concerns
the offices of governor, secrelury of state
and treasurer. I am in favor of an amend
ment of the present laws which shall require
that all fees received by these officers be
covered into the slate treasury. The state
could then attord to pay sufficient salaries
to all three, and still have a balance in the
treasury. I have been informed that the
fees of these offices aggregate a considerable
sum annually more than enough, as I said,
to compensate abundantly the governor,
the secretary of state and the treasurer. I
do not think it right that the people should
be required to pay from $10,000 to $15,000
per year for the services of an officer, for tbe
discharge of whose duties no special train
ing or qualifications sre required; and 1 do
not think it just tbat a small sum only
should be allowed to officers in positions
where special fitness is essentiai."
Whut is the Wilson bill?
It is a sop to Cerberus.
Who is Cerlwrus?
Ask the promoters of the bill.
Do they know?
They think they do.
When will they know for sure?
What will happen then?
They will feel the trouble which every
one else feels now.
Kmtor Whits, of the Portland Chronicle,
who was oneeof the large throng of visitors
in the city on the Fourth, soke of the do
ings on that day thus heartily: "The cel-
edration at Oregon City was a marked suc
cess. Thousunds of Portland People visited
the city by the falls and the universal ex-p-ession
is that 'everything went without a
hltrh,' and that the Oregon City people ex
erted themselves to make it comfortable
for all no matter whether strangers or net.
This Is a failing that the good people of
that burg are noted for. Grand Marshal
II. E. Smith guided the festivities ot the
day with a practiced hand, and the success
of the celebration is largely due to his per
sonal efforts in its behalf."

The Importance of the Cbatauqua sum
mer school as an educational factor in a
community cannot be overestimated, and
the efforts now being put forth byourcili
zens to establish one adjacent to Oregon
City at Gladstone Park should receive the
bearty support of all. The influence ex
erted by a summer school, for such it really
amounts to, is beneficent and improving,
reaching out to many more than those who
.are permitted to attend. It is calculated to
Henry Patterson's paper, the Courier-
Journal, seems to be moving for a change
of diet. Here is his essay on elections:
Tbey do say they have been having a few
more elections scattered round the country,
and the grins on the faces of the republicans
grow wider and wider and their lips smack
more loudly in antitipalion of the years of
the fatted kine.
This is a dreadfully disagreeable sort of a
year, anyway. Weather and weather and
elections and elections, until it has simply
become exasperating. It may be the mak
ing of blackberries, but it is rough on demo
crats. Let up on elections.
Blot elections out of the constitution and
swipe the word out of the dictionary.
Some people never know when to stop.
Nothing is more disgusting than carrying
things too far carryingelectionsespecially.
There a-e thousands and thousands of
folks in this country who are just plumb
tired out at the mere thought of an election.
Bay, what's the good of elections, anyhow?
They ain't so all-fired funny as some peo
ple seem to think.
There are oodlinsof things that are just
as comfortable and a heap more amusing.
There's a hand-organ, for instant, or a
school commencement, or a report of a ball
game by the Louisville club, or Senator
Stewart a silver speech, oreven just a plain,
nn pretentions funeral, with a free hack ride
to the graveyard.
Any one of these can beat an election out
of sight for real satisfaction, comfort, enter
tainment and pleasure.
Give us a hand organ, give us a ball game,
give us a funeral, give us liberty or death;
give us anything provided you give us a rest

A hew question of damages has been de
cided by Judge Oeborn of King county,
Washington, says the Chronicle. David
Darville was killed by an electric car. His
sons, both of whom are of age, snr-d the
street car company. The judge dismissed
the case on the ground that children who
have reached their majority can not compel
their father to support them and are enti
tled to recover no damages for his death.

The minutes of the previous meeting
were read and approved.
The association was greeted by some very
tine instrumental music by Mr. Ogle.
An address of welcome was delivered by
nr. uoucucr. ine saner saw among
other compliments that he believed Clack
mas county teachers to be second to none
in the fttute. He thought the good work
done by the association bad a tendency to
draw desirable teachers Irom ether counties
to our own.
Supt. Gibson responded to Dr. Gouchcr'
address. Among the things he referred to
was the fact that the bringing together of
parents, teachers and pupils, established
better understanding as to school work
that the standing of the schools Is con
lantly improving, and he said that while in
olllce it would be his constant endeavor to
further improve them,
It was thought best to omit the meeting

of the person to whom this subject had been
