Why. , Hon., Benton Klllin
Cannot Accept Bryan.
3e& Wlto Cannot SXalataia. Xiair, sad
" Order Will Xot Be Permitted
to Ruio the Earth.
Hon. Benton Klllin, of Portland, Is a
Democrat, but Jiot a Bryan Itemocrat.
Four years ago the Chicago platform
drove him out of his party, and he be
ctma one -of the organizers of the Gold
IsmocratIc party of Oregon. This year
lap Trill vote for McKlnley. Asked yes
terday to give his reasons for support
ing the.Jfcepuhllcaa ticket, he said:
Th$ more I think the whole matter
oat the more thoroughly am I convinced
that the turning point of the campaign Is
exactly the same as four years ago. Pour
years, age the Bryan people, in their plat
iprm, declared that President Cleveland
was censurable in using troops for quell
ing the riots at Chicago, where the mob
was burning, murdering, looting and in
terfering with the passage of the malls
and interstate commerce. That resolu
tion still stands, and it is a part of
JBryan's teaching, which he is "bound to
act upon if elected. He will not dare,
la case of riot, arson, murder or anarchy,
to enforce order by use of troops.
"He is bound to the coining and stamp
5ng of "cheap-and depredated, money. He
will be bound to pull down the American
flag and allow the flag of savages and
anarchy to go up. His teachings are
directly creating the impression among
the Idle, criminal and degenerate that
they are to be placed In control and that
Industry, thrift, intelligence and economy
are to be humbled and brought under
control and required to support the idle
and vicious.
'"All these teachings point to but one
thing: Bryan and the forces behind him
4eslre to return to barbarism. From a
cheap and discounted dollar it is but a
etep to teeth and claws, the wampum of
the From destruction of indus
try and intelligence and the talcing by
taxation or otherwise of the fruits of
labor for the support of crime and Igno- j
ranee, it is but a step to where the old
savage chief, armed with his war-club
and backed by his braves, appropriated
by force the fruits of industry. The con
test is sharply drawn between business
and civilization on one side, and idle
ness ahd barbarism on the other. The
words of Ben Harrison, in 1896. are as
true now as then: Tariffs and comage
avail nothing if our free institutions are
t'Bryanlsm proposes to tear down our
form of government and proposes nothing
in its stead: it leaves but one alterna
tive anarchy. "Barbarism, dark and cruel,
at one time had possession of the whole
of the soli covered by the United States.
Civilized man has by force wrested this
vast dominion from Its barbarous occu
pants, tne coyote ana xnaian, ana they
McKlnley and RooBevelt, can obtain
them free'of charge by calling at the hall.
All those living In that end of the city
who wish to take part in the big parade
to"take placer November 3, will leave their
names with Mr. Llllls or Mr. "Weber, at
the hall. The clubrooms are open dally
from 9 A. M. to 9 P. M., and Sundays
from 2 to 6 P. M.

Accessions are being received dally by
the committee in charge of the grand Re
publican parade that will wind up the city
campaign on November 3. The procession
promises to be the greatest ever held in
Portland on any political occasion. The
committee in charge is furnishing all
torches and "paraphernalia necessary, and
all the Republican organizations, mem
bers of civic societies, leading business
men, manufacturers, merchants and their
employes who stand for McKlnley and
prosperity will be in line. Cavalry will
augment the ranks of the Rough Riders,
and bands, flambeaux, red fire and trans
parencies will make the parade a notable
success. Clubs composed of members of
various labor organizations ., are being

McKlnley Banner to Be Suspended
Dp Toward the Sky. ,
Several red kites which hovered over
Third street, near Stark, yesterday after
noon, attracted considerable attention, as
they were of the scientific order, and
needed no tall to keep them still while
suspended in the air at a distance of
probably 900 feet above the street. "Very
few spectators could locate the. lower end
of the kite strings, and so ltwas a mat
ter of considerable speculation as to
where they were being sent up from.
Chairman Steel, of the Republican state
central committee, was the prime mover
in the kite display, and, with a few as
sistants on the roof of the Chamber of
Commerce building, Mr. Steel was mak
ing some experiments with the "Blue H.U
Box" and the "Eddy" Kite, with a view
to suspending a large campaign banner
high up over the street. This banner,
made of stout muslin, is 20 feet long and
10 feet wide, and when suspended in m'd
air by the aid of kites and wires, will
have a unique effect The banner, is a
simple allusion to "McKlnley and Roose
velt" There are five of these kites, and they
are much larger than they appear to the
spectators on the street, who generally
consider them about the size of an ordl-

In a brisk brpeze, the kite-flyer must not
get too near the edge of the roof, as he
is liable to be pulled over the Are wall

C. M. Grimes, who for the past eight
years has been buying cattle and hogs In
large numbers all over Oregomand Wash
ington and a large part of Idaho, says
that four, years ago he. was paying In
sections where they were bought by the
head, $20 to ?25i-per head for 3-year-old
steers and $15. to $18 for dry cows. He Is
now paying $35 to $40 for 3-year-old steers,
and $30 to $32 per head for dry cows. In
sections where cattle are bought by
weight, the' in the price has
beenln the same proportion.
In Tegard to hogs, Mr. Grimes says that
four years ago he purchased hogs on foot
at The Dalles and other points In that re
gion for $3 per hundredweight, sometimes
less, and that today he has to pay $4 75
per hundredweight for the same class of
hogs. Mr. Grimes and his reputation
well known throughout the extxensive re
gion over which he operates, and he has
his accounts of purchases to substantiate
the statements, which cannot be disputed.
He does -not buy sheep, but referred his
questioner to a man who has bought and
paid, for thousands every year for the
past half dozen ye"ars, who says that four
years ago sheep were selling at an aver
age of $1 50 per head, while now he pays
$3 per head for the same class of sheep.

Got Up an Original Entertainment
Which. Proved Highly Successful
. as a Drawing Card. -
.Two Sellwood youngsters, Kenneth and
Chester McNeill, aged 9 and 6 years; re
spectively, conceived the highly humorous
idea yesterday of setting flre to their
father's house in order to perpetrate a
practical Joke on him. Having carefully
matured the plans for this huge Jest, ,they
had little difficulty in putting them into
execution In the absence, of their
mother there was no one to Interrupt
them In the work of piling paper and
kindling wood back of the kitchen stove,
till they had formed a heap that no flre
could resist. Then they procured matches
from the shelf and applied them.
They had bullded full as well aa they
hoped to. The flames 'leaped up through
the dry kindlings, licked the paint from
the wainscoting, and was bounding mer
rily along toward the ceiling when one
of 1 the youngsters had a new Inspiration.
Why not get the flre department out and
have a real, old-fashioned, exciting time?
The Idea met the approval of 4iis fellow
conspirator. It was but a few steps to
the hosehouse, and the rope to the flre
bell overhead hung within reach of even
a small boy. Kenneth was sodn speed
ing on his way to the hosehouse, and a
second later the lusty clanging of the
bell aroused the neighborhood and called
forth the members of the Selwood volun
teer flre company In large numbers.
tThe house of James -A. McNeill, one of
the -handsomest In Sellwood, was on flre!
Surely something was doing In that quiet
suburb,, and the populace, thereof came
thronging forth to have a hand In It.
From the kitchen window a slender
thread .of smoke could be seen climbing
upward toward the sky. Mrs. McNeill,
came home visibly agitated. The Sell
wood volunteer hose company reeled out"
their hose and flocked In at the back
door.. Outside on the street itbe crowd
stood and yelled, among" them being the
delighted Kenneth and Chester, to Trhose
happy Idea the village owed this great
arid glorious day.
Fortunately, the flre had not pene
trated the celling when the volunteers
arrived, and only a few" buckets of watei
we're required ,to destroy the carefully
laid plans of the two disappointed young
sters. The crowd dispersed, and Kenneth
and Chester were led away by their
mother, presumably to be rewarded for
their high-minded desire to furnish enter
tainment to the residents of a peaceful
and quiet 'Bast Side town.

Gilliam County Man Has Strucls Pay
" Gravel.
Chris. Slnnott, a Gilliam County stock
man, who has spent the last three years
fortune-hunting In the frozen' North, re
turned from Norton, Sound yesterday and
tis registered at the Perkins. He left here
In the Summpr of 1S97, and went to Daw
son, where ho engaged in auctioneering
and in buying and selling miners' outfits,
as the diggings seemed to be overdone.
Last Summer he built a schooner at Daw
son, and with three otherB sailed down
the Yukon and the Alaskan coast to
Nome. There he found the diggings over
done again, so he rigged up an outfit and
with-flVe others, struck out fromsNome
into a northeasterly direction for about
200 miles. He prospected-on the various
cre'eks tributary to Koo-Wak River, and
found coarse gold enough to Justlfjt him
in, staking some claims. His partners are
left np there, and will hold the mines
down until Mr. Slnnott returns next Sum
mer with a pack train and two years'
provisions. He confidently expects to
get' rich -up there before he Teturns to
civilization again.
The worst part of Wintering In that far
off region, he considers lies between De
cember 15 and January 25(Of each year,

Ingly remarked last evening- that he had
made enough to bring him back home
again. Beyond this he would not commit
himself In regard to his financial affairs.
The portion, of country he has selected
for the next-few years operations id un
inhabited, except by-Eskimos, who Jive
in small villages near the river banks.
Few white men. If any, had penetrated
that far, and. he does not expect any rush
up there next year. Grass grows waist
high In the valleys, and he expects to put
up hay enough to carry a number of
horses through the 'Winter. Game is
abundant, caribou and moose being most
common, and. small grouse Is very numer
ous and edible. He enjoyed the best of
health while up there, and has no fears
of scurvy or ay othor disease so long as
a man can, take care of himself and keep
clean. "A man should bathe at least four
times a year, whether he needs a bath or
not, .in that region," he said, "but most
men are shockingly negligent, and avoid
the water when, once left to their own In
clinations In the North. This Is oneJ'rea
son why many men contract disease and
die there."
He left Nome on the 12th of this month
on board the San 3?edro. All who can do
so are trying to get away from there, and
the steamer was crowded. Those who are
broke will avail them3elves'0f three small
Government transports, -which will bring
them back to Seattle toward the end of
this month. There will probably be about
4000 persons left., to .Winter In Nome. He
considers that point a great fake, and
thinks the transportation companies will
try to boom some other point on the
Alaskan coast, In order to create a rush
next year.
