Will Prosperity Continue?
Will prosperity continue? That is the question
with which industry in the I'nited States faces a new
year after a twelvemonth of prosjvrity unparalleled
a twelvemonth in which practically every branch of
lmin mill ln.iniitact nre allowed an increase over
... .... . point in t ougref
orevious year; when ousiness i.uiures in spue oi , ,
thousands of new enterprises amounted to only
eijjht-teuths of one per cent.; when the railroads could
not carry the products of farm and factory so great
was its volume: when wages were increased as well as
prices; when the home demand for materials was so
"insatilile" (as llradstreet's puts it) that the volume
of ex Krts for a time w as checked, w hile producers
labored to supply the unprecedented needs for domes
tic use and 'internal development.
W ill prosperity continue? Cautious answers to the
question have been given by the majority of the daily
papers of the I'nited States. In the January 1st issue
many of them present the views of local business men
of prominence. The New York Kvening Post perhaps
has collected the largest amount of such data. In a
fifteen-page supplement it presents extended reviews
of the house. Fulton probably gets the best ot the
organization as Itrownell is friendly to him and Harris
was distinctly a Fulton candidate and a bright, ca
pable man, whose friends are glad to see him to the
front. As politics go Itrownell was entitled to the
place he asked for as he has made three hard lights
for the senate, has taken a prominent part in the sen
atorial election held hile he was a member of the
senate and deserves this recognition. We congratu
late hi in on his success. .
I.N the death of Hon. Thos. II. Tongue, not only his
congressional district but the state and coast lose a
valuable man in Congress, lie had reached that
:ional experience that made him of
distinct value to the state, especially will this he felt
jon committees. His place on the river and harbor
! committee alone has been worth much to the state,
j Among some of his notable uehieveinents was the In
idian War Veterans Pension Mill and the Crater Lake
j National Park. He has also at all times worked for
the improvement of the Columbia river and it had
j been due to his efforts as much as anyone's that Ore
Igon got as much as she did for this work. Mr. ongue
also did much for irrigation and better mail facili
ties for the state. He was a man of strong coiivic
tions, firmness, and active in the interests of his state"
to the point of aggressiveness. He was strongly de
voted to the inteiests of the state, felt the responsibil
it v of his position and with tact and judgment labored
for his district and constituents. Oregon will miss
him from the halls of Congress and can not hope to

yet "such an inevitable reckoning. . . .will hut develop
in clear lisfht the real resources of American industry
anl finance." The conclusions of the I'ost are con
firmed on all sides. The New .York Times thinks that
';tLe conditions' now existing and the forces now oper
ative promise to carry us prosperously through the
greater part of the year.'' The Tribune, speaking
broadly of :i flairs industrial and social, says that
"w here men faced the first day of l'.M.rj with anxiety
and mi.-eiviiiL's. or at best with feeble hope, they face
the opening of with confidence and exultation."
The Herald, taking a more sober view of speculation,
declares th.it there has been "too much borrowing,
and credit so seriously inflate. that a shock of any
ind which would cause a sudden demand for the re
demption of these credits might have unfortunate con-
an unprecedented hemorrhage when this world de
stroyer gets into full aetion, and the miserable planta
tions of Louisiana will resolve themselves into the
original bayous once more. If the planters are to be
saved a law should be passed making it a crime to
raise lx-ets exeept for pickles.
Thfick are attempts b iog made' in the legislature
to change the metho 1 of raising the school fund by
making it a per capita tax. Some are advocatim.'
making it us high us 'S a pupil. This would nearly
double the school fund in this county and it is doubt
ful if the people would be willing to tax themselves
even for so laudable a purpose as the school to this
extent. Some advocate the raising of the tax from ."

between the I'overnirient and tho Ilouian Catholic:
church. After a description of the development under
the old regime the following significant passage occurs:
Eut the fortune of war which changed the civil gov
ernment of the country has involved changes in the
spiritual government also. For with the cessation of
Spanish rule the right of patronage of the Spanish
kings has also ceased, and the church has come into
greater liberty, with the just partition of its rights
from those of the civil government.
This actually sounds like an expression of grati
fication over the change, and it certainly implies an
unreserved acceptance of such a status as is accorded
to the churcii in this country. We may expect, there
fore, that the future policy of the church government
will be det-eri ii ined largely by the traditions and ex
perience of the American church and the advice of
prelates. The connection with Spain, it appears, in
severed absolutely. The head of the Philippines hier
archy will be the archbishop of Manila, and the mem
bers of monastic orders will be responsible to the ex
ecutive bishops of their dioceses, who have the juris
diction which formerly belonged to the superiors of
the orders. Hence, although the problem of the friars
And their property is not wholly solved as yet, the
enor of the document indicates very clearly that its
Sk.natok Mahsteks is insisting that the appropria
tion to the Lewis and Clark Fair be submitted to the
people under the initiative and referendum. Senator
Marsters will find that there are many people that
agree with him in this matter. As it is the people
who will have to pay the tax, they should have a
voice in saying how much if any tax they care to pay
for this purpose. A half million of dollars is quite a
sum of money and we believe it would pay the state
to expend it; there are many who do not. We do
think that Senator Marsters is right in letting the
people pass on this matter. If they vote the tax they
will pay it much more cheerfully than they will if they
have no voice in the matter.
David 13. Hill wants patent medicine makers to
quit using his portrait for advertising purposes. This
is an entirely reasonable demand. The patent medi
cine people, as well as others, should refrain from do
