Oregon has set the seal of condemnation
upon the free-trade policy of the democratic
party. The people of Oregon came to know
that every industry of that great state was
threatened with destruction, and, as a mat
ter of self-defense, they have given their
votes in favor of the party which believes In
the protection of American Industries, the
party which would, if it could, protect the
lumber industry, the wool industry, the hop
industry, the horse-raising Industry, and all
the agricultural industries of the country.

IUE ORIENTAL MUDDLE.
The following is given bv an exchange as
the cause of the threatened war in the
Orient and will be of interest at this time
when many of our readers may not recall
the diUVrences which threaten war on the
other side of the Pacific:
"The history of the Corean incident be
gins with the Corean rebellion, when, upon
the application of the Xing, the United
States sent the warship Baltimore to Chem
ulpo. Almost simultaneously the Japan
ese and Chinese governments sent military
forces to aid the king in his efforts to stamp
out the rebellion. They were successful,
and when quiet was restored the Coreans
proffered their thanks and suggested a
withdrawal of the foreign forces. This was
not so easily accomplished, and govert.
nient official made an explanation sub
stantially as follows of the situation in
Corea. and of the attitude and course of
The Chinese and Japanese have alwavs
been, at odds whenever Corea was con
cerned, for each had long cherished designs
upon the autonomy of the country. How
ever, the Chinese were willing to withdraw
if the Japanese would do likewise, but the
latter country discovered that she had a I
nuniler of grievances against the Corean9
on account of maladministration, and mak
ing a series of demands, some of which
touched the very existence of Corea as an
independent nation, Japan announced that
her troops would not be withdrawn until
these conditions were met. At this point
the attention and interest of each nation
was strongly aroused, for it was seen that
the peace of all Northern Asia was in
jeopardy, and the powers that had great in
terests there began to consider what should
be done to dissuade Japan from pursuing
a course that promised to break down the
integrity of the little nation that had
served as a buffer between the two great
Asiatic nations. Great Britain and Russia
and France interposed with pacific remon
strances, but these wereunheeled by Japan,
the present government of which it was
intimated here, was in such a desperate
pass politically that it felt obliged to excite
the national feeling as a means of self-preservation.
The United States was drawn into
the matter. We have large interest in
China and Japan and prospect of greatly
enlarging onr trade relations, and United
States Minister Dunn atTokio represented
the conditions to the state department, and
it was felt to be not only in our own in
terest, but for the good of all concerned,
to re-inforce the efforts of the great Euro
pean powers to prevent a conflict that
would surely be disastrous to both sides.
The Oregon State Journal under the head
"A Proclamation,'' prints the following as
an unique and characteristic aildress Issued
bv one IVbs. It is addressed to "the repub
lics, empires, kingdoms and principalities
of the universe." and is issued from the
Throne room, Uhlichs ball, Chicago, and
reads as follows:
"On and after Monday next, unless I
change my mind or the A. II. U. cuts oil'
my salary and I have to go to work, the
world will make but one revolution in thirty
six hours instead of twenty. four hours as
heretofore. The sun will herealter rise in
the West except on Sunday, when It may
rise in the Ka-t as usual.
"All stars of the first magnitude are here

receipt of this notice. St, Peter will allow no
one to pass his gate unless bearing a per

conflict, all American people are forbidden
to die until the strike is over.
"Angels will at once organize themselves
into direct councils, 'Angels' Celestial l'u

a rate of remuneration to be fixed by me.
"Commencing right after harvest the
Mississippi river will How North and event

that for that reason the change is deferred
until alter harvest to give the people there
a chance to move into other states.
"Grover Cleveland is hereby removed

Winn democratic professors are teaching
the theory of free trade the manufacturers
show how free trade works. The Call says
that the California juto mills have closed
down and thrown 400 men, women and
girls out of employment, for the simple and
sole reason that thev cannot pay American
wages and compete with Calcutta labor. It
adds, Our free-trade professors may say that
the proprietors of the Jute factory wanted
larger profits than the Industry could pav,
but the tact that a plant which cost f;tmi,iVm
stands Idle is a reasonable assurance that In
this case the employer is not closing down
of his own will, The real truth is that w ith
the cut In duties proposed by the Wilson
bill, ten cents a day Calcutta labor crowds
dollar and a half American labor out. If
Calcutta had a vote in the American college
of electors. It would, without doubt, be cast
as our tree-trade, professors might direct,

His work is less noisy, but perhaps more
deadly than that ol the bomb-thrower.
With the closing of the session of the
Chautauqua Assembly which was as success
ful as could have been expected from the
disadvantages under which the committee
labored, there conies the question of mak
ing it a permanent orgauitution. This In
volves much work and the laylngofa founda
tion so broad that Its existence w ill not be
threatened at any time by anv misunder
standing or dispute over indefinite points.
Among these are denoniiuationalism, the
relation of the church to the secular in
control and progrMn, transportation, (dace
of meeting, linanciul backing andottUers
who will have control. It is to he h :qed
that the committee can cope with all these
and other important iucstions which will
arise during their deliU'rations in such a
way as to assure an assembly broud gauged,
influential and permanent.

Tita rate at which Oregon's governor
is emptying the penitentiary of the
very worst of its criminals is giving
rise to a discussion of the advisability
of providing a pardoning board in

The Sunday Welcome, commenting on
the diccusflion now pending in some of the
papers of the state, nays: It would Beem
as though with the strike trouhle, and the
tarif fight, and the Oriental war, and the
cholera, and other minor topics to discus",
the Oregon editors could find enough to do
without discussing who will be the next
United Slates senator from Oregon when
all of them, and everybody else, know al
ready. But here are a dozen papers pub
lishing a statement that the next legislature
may elect Mr. D. P. Thompson, or ex-Senator
Corbett, or Mr. Sol Hirsch, or Mr. C. W
Fulton, or Mr. Thomas H. Tongue. 0,
well, why not add to the list? There are
Hon. binger Herman, and Hon. W. E.
Ellis, and Harry Miller, and Timothy Talk
ing Ceer, and Judge Fee, and Mr. Ander
son, and ex-(Jovemor Moody, and ex-postmaster
Gilbert, and Senator Dawson, and
Col. J, 13. Eddy, and Senator Benjamin
Franklin Alley, and John C. Leasure and
a multitude of other great and good men,
who if it was thrust upon them would serve
the people of Oregon in the senate with
great ability. But it is rather Idle talk to
discuss the matter, when everybody knows
that if he lives Mr. Dolph will succeed himself.
Chas. H. Dodd, the well-known hardware
and agricultural implement dealer of Port
land, says in the American Economist: In
Iftrl we bad absolute men employed in our
business forty-five, and these forty-five re
mained with us until Octsber, 1WS, when
business fell down to such a.i extent that
we cut them down to forty. April 1, 18!H.
we cut the men down to twenty-three. This
gives the standing exactly of the house to
day. In 1 w ith a capital of half a mil
lion we employed forty-live hands. The
same capital, at the close of l-!)3, could only
give employment to forty hands. The same
capital in can only employ twenty-
three hands. In addition to this we have
been obliged to cut off six branch houses
which, in 1W, yielded good returns; but
made a loss in left's and the continuance of
them in 191 would have been ruinous,
Comment is unnecessary and the figures
stand for themselves. The articles we have
manufactured and sold are agricultural im
plements, every one of which were manu
factured in the slates of New York, Ohio
and Illinois and fitted up and finished here.

Usdkb the title of "If the Tariff is Post
poned" the Globe-Democrat says: Post
ponement of final action on the tarill'bill
to December would mean death to the bill,
It would mean this because the overwhelm
ing majority w hich the republicans are sure
to gain in the congressional elections would
be accepted by congress as a mandate from
the people to stop tarill' tinkering. The re
publican majority will come in any event,
and it will be larger if the bill is postponed
than if it be passed at this session. A fail
ure to pass any bill before the election,
whether this failure Were due to the defeat
of the measure or to its being put off to the
next session, would be worse for the party
in the canvass than the enactment of a
more mischievous bill than this one, bad as

of $121,813,000, capital stock $1.',258,000,
and total capitalization 1:0,101,000. This
brings the totals of roads in the hands of

Next year is the time set by the constitution
for a census of the state. The provisions of
the constitution and law governing this im
portant work are as follows:
Sec. 5 Article IV of the constitution of
Oregon provides that the legislative assem
bly shall every ten years following lxi,',
cause an enumeration lo be made of all the
population of the state.
The legislature, following the directions
of the feregoing, have made provisions in
chapter III of the annotated law of Oregon,
page 1071, as to who shall do this, what he
shall do and w hen he shall do it.
The duty devolves upon the county as
sessor to begin the work of enumeration on
the 10th day of May and to make out an
enumeration roll in the following form .
One column each for
Legal voters ;
Males 21 and upwards;
Males under 21 and over 10;
Males under 10.
Females of 18 and upwards;
Females under 18 and over 10;
Females under fen;
The number of acres under cultivation
The number of bushels of wheat raised
during the preceding year;
The number of bushels of oats raised;
The number of bushels of hurley and rye;
The number of tons of hay;
The number of pounds of wool ;
The number of ounces of gold dust;
The number of bushels of corn ;
The number of sheep;

The number of bushels of potatoes:
The number of bushels of apples ;
The number of feet of lumber;

The number of pounds of cheese and but
ter. The assessor returns these rolls to the
county clerk, who makes a copy of them to

with the secretary of state. There are
heavy penalties attached for a failure on the
part of either of these oflicers to do his duty
and for the assessor wbo falsifies the record.
