A Sharp Trick. General Com peon is
accredited with securing two appropria
tions for the Oregon National Guard at
the hands of this legislature. The Qul
lixson bill giving them 140,000 baa
pa seed both houses over the governor's
veto. The Ford bill to give the National
Guard $60,000 in lien of the mill tax also
passed both houses. That gives the state
militia a cool hundred thousand to
operate with the coming two years. The
governor cannot well veto the Ford bill
without restoring the mill tax of both
the militia and State University, and
adding considerably to what they will
now receive- When the matter came
before the House of paesing the Gnlhx
aon bill over the veto Ford denounced it
as being in bad faith and an outrage on
the tax payers of this state. Journal
Ford waa right. Such kind of legislation
is very disgraceful and not at all credita

We publish the following by request :
The Oregon State School Journal has been
purchased by parties who are organizing
a stock company. Its name has been
changed to the Western Pedagogue, The
State School Journal of Oregon. C Elton
Blanchard, a teacher well known on the
coast, has accepted the editorship, and the
prospects for the paper are better than
they have ever been before. Mr Blanch
ard is an educator and writer of long ex
perience and has called to his support some
of the best educsttonal wrlltrs. The new
organization has plenty of capital to push
the enterrrlss to a success never before
attained. The paper should and will
without the least doubt receive the hearty
support of the teachers and school officials
of the state. Under these circumstances
the organ will serve the school public to
a valuable advantage. The teachers of
this county should send in their subscrip
tions at once. The March Issue, the first
number under the new management, will
be inalied the last week of 1 ebruary . The
home of the paper will now be at Its
former location, Corvaltis, Oregon, "the

Washington, Feb IS, 1893. Democrats
in congress are far from being pleased with
the financial outlook. The house ways and
means committee made a favorable report
of Representative Bynum's resolution
authorizing an investigation of the charge
pnbliely made that Secretary Foster has
made a deal with certain New York bank
ers whereby he was to exchange at par for
gold $50,000,000 ef U 8 bonds. The fact
that New York bankers are seldom philan -thropisti,
and that they are known to be
furnishing the treasury with nld caused
many people to believe this charge; hence
the necessity for an investigation. The
public wants no secret juggling with tbe
finances ef tbe country. It is only fair to
Secretary Foster and the present adminis
tration to say that they dray the charge of
issuing or having promised to issue bonds
for gold, ritill it it believed by some that
Secretary Foster, who is now in New York,
is there to break up tbe deal, because of the
"Silver week ' in the bouse and senate
amounted to nothing more substantial than
to make its certain taat no silver legisla
tion would take place at the present session.
It has been repeatedly stated here within
tbe last ten days that President elect Cleve
land had said he would call an immediate
extra session of the next congress if the
present failed to take some action that
would stop tbe purchase of skiver by the
government but now that congress has by
votes in both houses given notice of its
tenure to take such action no one seems to
be certain that an early session will be
called, and there appears to be a doubt in
t be minds of quite a number of democrats
as to whether Mr Cleveland ever authorized
h Mr Harrison s inflnence be strong
enough to accomplish it tbe legislation
necessary to the annexation of Hawaii is to
be rushed through congress. Mr Harrison
1 w .
nas decided to tend a mesaage to congress
recommending annexation and suggesting
the terms to be contained in the legislation
To many this appears to be as hasty as was
the action of Minister Stevens in establish
ing a protectorate, and it is certainly going
to be done with much less to excuse it It
is assumed to be necessary for this govern
meet to endorse the action of Stevens, and
that being done what occasion is there for
hurrying annexation ? It is well known that
so tongas Hawaii is under the protection
of the American lag no European govern
meat win eure to interfere, mere it a
great big nigger concealed somewhere in
this Hawaiian wood pile, and his feet will
be exposed if there be no undue baste in
Tbe talk of tbe republicans on the floors
of eongn-sa aad in private on the penal
questten i very different Privately they
admit that if to -selling is not done to
reduce them the payments will soon bank
rapt the country, but on the noon of
rrsagiess they bitterly resist every attempt
to reduce the amount paid. Tbe boose
committee oa appropriations after carefu
ojutAoeraticm has recommended some
amendments to tbe general pension appro
priation bills, now being considered by tbs
house, which would if thev became laws
save $30,000,000 a year, but the republicans
are doing everything in their power to
present tie adoption of these amendments -One
of the amendments orovides for
(rmntf erring tbe pension bureau to the war
department and the detail of army officers
to manage it which would remove it from
politics; others provide for a suspension of
pentiens paid to widow who were not
married within five years after the dose of
the war; to those having a yearly income
of $609 or more, and. except in cases of
total disability, to alien non residents.
The difficulty tbe Panama investigation
committee has had in getting witnesses to
testify baa caused the suspicion to be gen
eral that influences are at work to' prevent
the troth being found out. Tbe committee
has now gone to New York to see if any
thing can be got out of the bankers who
disbursed the money. Later they wilt go
to Indiana to get ex-Secretary Thompson's
statement of what be did to earn his salary
of $24,000 a year; also what he knows about
other money spent.
FEET A RED TO DO sttsiMS
W hifo tbe Glob had hopes oi the electisn
of a democratic senator tn Nebraska still
there is a deal of consolation in the defeat ef
a republican and In the election of an Inde
pendent. Half a loaf Is better than none,
and an independent with democratic senti
ments is much mere preferable than a re
publican. Tbe outcome la Nebraska is
largely a democratic victory. It was demo
cratic support that made Judge Allen's elec
tion possible, sad Judge Allen, the senator
elect was formerly a democrat, and has
never lost resyect or affection for his old snd
first party. It is certain that Judge Allen
gave the democrats assurance that he would
co-operate with the democrats la the Senate
oa potent issues, hence his election means
one more democratic vote in the Senate.
This Insures democratic supremacy la the
Senate aad harmonizes both branches of tbe
national legislature with the administration
attcr March 4 For the first time in 30 years
the democrats will thus h-ve an opportunity
to undue republican legislation, fulfill prom-
set made to ihe people and right the wrongs
hat have enslaved and pauperized industry
and industrial labor. Toat the party wttl
be true to its trusts there is no doubt. Tbe
democracy hss fought Its wsy into power
against greet odds and in spite of monopo
lists ami corruptlonists, and having at last
reached the point of its ambition there will
be no rest of arms until every wrong is right
ed, every class law repealed and every sat
ellite and spoliator officially dismantled.
