There is probably ns city of importance in the world that can show
such rapid and wonderful growth as Chicago simce its detraction by
fire. To-day its population is about i.aoo.ooo. Mr. Peter V an benaack,
one of the leading merchants of that city said in conversation, that a
large number of his personal friends, as well as scores of representative
men throughout the Northwest with whom he had conversed upon the
subject, had found St. Jacobs Oil a pain-curing and healing remedy of
the most extraordinary efficacy. It is the Great Remedy for Rheuma
tism, Neuralgia, Sciatica, Backache, Bruises, Bums, Swellings etc.

tells it: Matt Gollivan, the genial
timber land locator, telle a pretty good
Oregon Pacific story, which we believe
haa never before been pnbliehed. It
happened about four yeare ago that Ed
Wolff, who at the preeent time livee near
Gates, aix miles below here, wae coming
across tha mountains by way of the
Minto Pass trail. Near .the summit he
met four hunters. On reaching civilisa
tion he reported having eeen four Chica
go A Northwestern surveyors working in
the mountains. This came to the ears of
Wra M Hoag, manager, of the Oregon
Pacific railroad, and be telegraphed
Wolff to come to Corvallm forthwith. A
party was made up to investigate the
matter and they started on a apecial
train, going as far- aa Gates. They then
took pack horses and crossed the moun
tains, returning by way of Portland.
The trip failed to reveal the surveyors.
Taxing Legacies. A number of mem-
befa are earnestly in favor of Geer s
house bill to tax gifts, legacies and in
heritances, but it is doubtful u it win
become alius, though in judgment of
manr it ia a wiae Taw. It proposes to
tax property, if the a mount is aver $6000,
which shall paaa by will or the intestate
lawa, $ 1 on each hundred. On a $ 1C ,000
estate the state would receive aa income
of 100, on 100,000 the sum ot $1,000,
and ami from the late W S Ladd aula to.
if this law had bean in force, the state
would have received, supposing he had
left $10,000,000, the anug amount ot
$100,000. Such a law prevails in New
York state, where the Gould estate had
to pay over $700,OC0 into the tax of the
After th S. G. The editor of the
East Oregonlan having said that the Ore
gon militia ''Is composed of spindle
shanked youths, and the entire lot would
not keep at bay a couple of cur dogs," the
Wallowa - Chieftain retorts: "There Is no
law to prevent the East Oregonlan man
from having his opinion and expressing It,
but if he will come over to Joseph he ..ill
find In a single company of this despised
militia forty men, any one of whom will
convince him of his mistake In about two
minutes." If he will come to Albany we
will present him to Capt Overman, Lieut
McFeron, Ex-Capts Chamberlain and Ir
vine, or almost anv of the privates, and
there wouldn't be a grease spot left of our

In a Commotion. From a gentleman
who waa in Cottage Grove yesterday we
learn the citiieae of that enterprising and
progressive little city baa been thrown
into a commotion over the charter bill as
was passed by the legislature. It appears
that the portion of the toon west oi tbe
river haa been left out of the boundaries
of the town and the residents of the
eastern part are therefore quite angry aa
it cuts off considerable taxable property.
The party informed us that tbe division
question produced but a small amount of
excitement in comparison with this one.

It appears that rvpieaentaUve Belknap,

ponents charge that be does so for the
reason that the county seat of the new
county would be located m his neighbor
hood, and Mr G A Wagner, on the part
ot the remonstrants intimated that there
waa aa unholy alliance between the
friends ot B sine and Lincoln counties.
Representative Beiknap retorted to the
effect that Mr Wagoner waa an unholy
liar, whereupon Mr Wagoner promptly
reached for Mr Belknap, but tailed to
find him. Immediately tbe room waa in
an uproar, and petitioners and remon
strants were mixed up in what threat
ened to be a firat-claas edition of Bonny

The governor sent ia tbe following veto
to the senate Wednesday:
"1 herewith return senate bill No. 2i
with my dissent This bill proposes to tale
$60,000 collected from the psop' through
the t axing power of the stats, and place it
in the hands of a commission to be expend
ed in making a show at Chicago. The
legislature has the undeniable right to levy
taxes for the general benefit, but a well
defined line of limit is clearly established
between those benefits that are practical
and those that are merely speculative. It
is unquestioned that the legislature can
authorize expenditures for works of utility,
necessary for the general welfare, but it is
more thsn qusstioaable if it haa the right
o levy txe upon tbe people for intanrible
and uncertain benefits, such as are supposed
to accrue from advertising their products
either in Chicago. Japan, or elsewhere. To
tax some people for the benefit of others or
to tax the people for any other purpose
than for the frugal administration ot gov
ernment in the full excrciso of its undoubt
ed prerogative may not bs specifically in
hibited by any constitutional provision, but
it is so repugnant to right as to be equally
condemnatory, for the precepts of justice
sbould be as binding upon the conscience
of the legislator as are the restrictions of
the constitution. Let it be conceded that
tbe legislature can exercise the power of
levying taxes at its own will and "for any
purpose, and tbe taxpayer will become at
once the prey of the schemer, and corrup
tion and extravagance, through doly
enacted statutes, clothed with all the forms
and sanctity of law. will hold high carnival
over tne spoliation of the citixen. A de
parture from the one safe rule that the
taxation of the people by the government
should be strictly limited to its bonnt ad
ministration in tbe exercise of necessary
governmental functions wculd open wide
Oe door for public peculation at the expense
of private thrift, and, if once sanctioned,
oar fate government would soon become
what the federal government for more than
a quarter of a century has been a most
effective instrumentality for tbe robbery of
the taxpayer for the benefit of the boodler.

OSB PHASE OF THE COfcTEKT
That the republican party is an organi
sation wholly devoid of political principle,
held together, as has often been tersely said,
"by the cohesive power of public plunder,"
and held together very badly by that even,
is patent to the most casual observer of
public events in this state. In the dis
graceful scramble for tbe highest position
in tbe gift of tbe state cow going on at
Olrmpia. tbe leaders of tbe two factions
have spfarentiy lost, if they ever had any,
all sense of personal decency in their rela
tions with one another. If aa intelligent
foreigner, an Englishman for instance,
coo Id be set down ia Oiympia today and be
told that the republican beer garden 'here
was aa organ i Alton of citizens for tbe
porpoee of carrying oat ,,-ertain political
ideas in tbe common wealth, be would
certainly receive the statement with in
credulity and surprise.
Nor is tots ail. If half tee republican
press says is fame, there is not a prominent
man in that party worthy the political sup
port of any reputable community. Senator
Allen figures aa all that is bad in public
life. If one might believe tbe reports of his
enemies in his own party. Judge Turner
fares 00 better: Governor McGraw figures
a a meddling busybody who has pushed
his operations to tbe verge of 'esral liability
while poor Representative Ludden is pill
oried with unlimited abase for having
changed his vote to A I 'en. after several
wfeks of futile effort to elect Turner.
The Chronicle is charitable enough no
believe all that tbe repuUiran say of

credits the veracity and reliability of

Thc'r party newspapers have done much to
discredit tbe character cf the republican
organisation in tbe eyes of all right-think
ing people in this state during tbe past
few weeks. In this regard their iinsssnw

The following are some of the sslient
points of an article on the tattfF sjuestion
by David A Wells snd published In the Feb
ruary Forum, The low tariff riod la the
United States extended from 1847 to i860
aad Prof Sumner of Yaie says it was "the
golden se of of our national history , when
foreign commerce and American shipping
Increased as never before or since: and when
domestic manufactures did not perish asprel
dieted, but. made steady and genuine pro
gress. Ia 1 861 when tariil duties were large
ly increased such action hinged almost en
tirely upon the demand for more revenues
I wltb which to p-osecute the war not upon
protection Another more striking Illustra
tion is to be found in the fact (bat although
the United States and Canada have united
in building up a doable tariff wall, one on
one side of the border and tbe othtr on the
other side, which all trsde between tne two
countries hss to climb over, yet nearly one
half of Ibe trade of Canada is carried on with
United Slates. An illustration of the. ab
ardlty ef tariff legislation which freqaently
obtains, may be found in the fact that the
United States impuseaa duty of is cents s
pound upon imporied bops to jro'.ect A
merican hop growers against the Uieap hops
of Canada, while Canada imposes a duty of
5 cents a pound upon Imported hops to pro
tect Csaadian hop growers sgaicst the
cheap hop product of America. If the bop
product of the United States. If the bop
growers of th; United S ates need protect
ion against tbe Hop growers of Canada, then
certainly, tbe bop grovcrs of Canada do not
need protection against the hop growers Of
he United States.
A Washington dbpatcb says:
There ia bo longer any tope smoeg the
republican employe of the senate, tele
graphs a Washington special, that they will
be able to hold their places.
Tbe election of the populist -democrats in
Kansas and Nebraska removes sll doubt a
bout tbe ability of the democrats to reor
ganize as a body.
Now, of the holdover snd newly elected
democrats ia the next senate, there are 4
members; there are five popolists, all of
whom HI undoubtedly vote with the demo
crats on reorganization.
The republicans will have 4 vote if Ike

We suppose that, now the mjrtgage tax
aw is repealed, if a money leaider who
lives outside of the state should take a mort
gage for money leaned in this state be
would not have to pay any taxes here for
tbe mortgage and note, being personal
property, and, under the well principle
of law, follow the person, would not be in
the state and hence not rubje d to the juris
diction of the state. But it will be differ
ent with citizens of this stale who loan
money and take mortgages. Being peraonal
property, such notes and mortgages would
follow the person of tbe owner and hence
would be subjects for taxation. This is
quite a discrimination in favor of foreign
money lenders. Some money lenders would
find it quite profitable to take up their
residence in another state and then loan
their money in this state.
From an interested standpoint the Drx
ockat is prepared to express tbe belief that
the machine or Hill men are preparing to
turn New York over in the near future tc
Uis republicans. These machine men ar
turning every Cleveland man in the sU
out of office or place, and so intense is their
seal in this work that they have turned
down every laborer connected with the
Cspitol building who is known to be
friend of Cleveland. It looks very much
like the democrats of tbe country will hav
to try and get along without New York
hereafter. If the democrots of Indiana
Illinois and Wisconsin will deport them
selves aa becomes tbe friends of tbe peopl
we will not particularly need New York in
presidential conflicts hereafter.

Tbe Uamev Peak tin mine at Deadsrood,
South Dakota, and theTemescal mines in
California were tbe only two nuses in the
whole country where it was aliened, ieven
by the friends of tbe Vi.-Kin'ey bill.) that
tin iu paying quantities could be obtained.
It was confidently promised by McKinleyJ
that hia increase of tbe duty on tin would
develop these into paying mines- Tbe
beauties of protection were proclaimed from
every repuh.'i -an slump speaker in the land
during tbe last campaign, and these mines
were referred to as proof of tbe great bene
fits of protection. Weil, tbe mines in Cali
fornia closed down indefinitely juM after
tbe November election, and now tbs mine
of Sooth Dakota have permanently closed.
We trust tbe Oregonxi will once more tell
bow the tin mines of thi country will soon
supply every demand for tin in tbe country.
We trust every a ool grower in tbe
United States will look into and seriously
consider these facts : For the twelve months
ending December .'list IsM. there were
imported into tbe United States 139,317,-
1 pounds of wool and for tbe year ending
December Stst 1W there were 187,784,-
090 pounds. We mention this to show
how well tbe wool grower is protected under
the Mc Kin ley law Now look at another
fact and then say what should be 'thought
of the Oswssssaw's repeated statement that
the democrats will protect manufacturers
and not producers. For tbe first year above
named woolen goads to the value of 934,
010,95 were imported and for last year
there were imported of such goods IWT.olo,
39- worth. Importation of wool increases
while importation of woolen goods de
creases. Tbitetls tbe whole story.
