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. A cody of the " Official Portfolio of the World's Columbian Esposition," beautifully llrastritedE water color effrcti, will be sent to any address upon receipt of loc.

It Was a J on:. - The Lumberman 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 state. 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 E ( friend, who is said to be hardly a shadow caster himself.

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 Salem Democrat gives tbe following account of the war at Salem heretofore mentioned : It appears that rvpieaentaUve Belknap, who ia supposed to represent Benton cbunty, favors tbe petition, and hia op 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 brook. In a abort time, however, order waa restored and upon an examination it waa found that the whole affair bad been aa bloodless aa a French duel A Ftasimsv.

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.

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 one another. At the same time it rather credits the veracity and reliability of tbeir organs to find what was white before tie election made so very black after it. 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 ary work, though lacking ia dignity and honest 1 . may vet make for tbe ultimate advantage of the state. Spokane CJsrowirfe. SAL1K.M rolNT.-. 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.

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.

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. Albany. r itKAD, President. 1 L CO WAS, Treasurer. J O WP.rPSMAX. Oesaetsij Geo F SIMPSON.

One hundred ana twenty of tbe heaviest manufacturing firms of San Francisco, most of whom are republicans in politics, have sent a petition to congress asking that in the revision of the tariff, iron ore, coal, coke, pig iron scrap iron, and scrap steel bo placed on the free iit. Now these gentlemen, seeing that reduction of the tariff is a foregone conclusion are ready to rush in and secure ti e best benefits to re sult from such reduction and in doing so they manifest the true spirit of the scheme I protection ask for something that will beuetit theuit elves but ignoring the interests of all others. But this petition, though se!tish, thows that the great lestrictive and prohibitive Chinese wall is tumbling to pieces rapidly. The first bell mng in Ameiics was erected on the fust church ever built lo this countryl early in 1494, Columbus landed at Isabel Is, on the island of San Domingo, in De cember, 1493, snd soon built a church. Shortly afterward a new cltv was begun in tbe royal plaltat La Vega, and was called La Vega, or the City of the Plains. The church, with the bell, and all the other bouses of Isabells, were then moved to La Vega.
