The ratio of siiteen'grains of silver to
one of cold in coining the mtta's into
money, is the result of years of practical
testa as to the relative value of the two
metals in the markets of the world. If
both of these metals were deprived of
their money value, and gold placed where
silver now is, the bullion price of the two
tn the markets woald be found to be a'
bout 16 to 1, that is, one ounce of gold
would be equal to sixteen of silver in the
commercial world. This condition hav
ing existed for years with only slight
variations, that ratio was very naturally
adopted when the two aetata were coin
ed into money, and it being tbe custom,
as well as tbe accepted basis, it is not
likely that any legislation can be effect
ed at this date to change tbe system so
long in vogue and so jostle) all classes.
A Friend of the Fair. ,

of such. Questions publish the com
After attending the state fair for a
week, we read with a great deal of curi
osity the solemn asseverations, of those
who did not attend, regarding its fail
We visited every department, and
from chicken coops to art gatlery tbe ex
hibits were ia abundance and -well
chosen. How any one can witness the
aggregation of stock from inany herds;
fowls from yards; sheep from flocks;
horses from stalls and fields; cereals and
vegetables from farms and gardens;
fruits from orchards; products from j
dairies; minerals from mines; imple
ments aod machinery from mechanics;
pictures from artists ; flowers from flor
ists' gardens, and all that is attractive
and useful from tbe handiwork of wo
men, manufactories and mills, collected j
together for comparison and competi
tion, and tlieb learn noth tag but "fail
ure," is indeed a conundrum. All who
attended the state fair at Salem could
see the best productions emanating from
tbe best brain and brawn in Oregon nd
tbe collection was large for a young
state. Is such woik a "failure?" We
expended some money and spent five
days in attendance at the fair, bat oar
acquaintance with farmers, artisans, or
chardtsts and artists',, and their efforts
to' produce and display the best, is sn
experience and knowledge that could
not have been obtained in as many years
nor for doable tbe money, therefore we
are not prepared to writedown tbe state
fair as a "failure." ; '
None can dispute tbe proposition that
In wealth of knowledge and experience
of tbe manufactures acd producers, the
state fair was a success..
Perhaps Oregon's exhibit did not pay
in dollars and cents, but must It bi un
written law that every thing is a failure
which is not a money-making scheme.
We are prepared to contend that society
may be and is enriched by that which is
more valuable than the gain o! money
at tbe state fair.
But he who states that the fair is a "fail
ure'.' because of its financial condition, is
seriously troubled with a nigbtmaric dread
of the baleful influences of the "borte
rices." The trials of speed butween horses
at the state fair is like music between tbe
acts of a plav. The race track and all its
attractions omitted at an agricultural fair,
would be like tbe play of Hamlet with
Hamlet loft out.
It is true that , pool selling and ail it
kindred vices ought to be omitteed, but it
is a noticeable fact that those -who con
demn this evil the most are remarkably
reticent about the every-day gambling car
ried on in their own town.
I he best way to have a (rood state fair
has come in of late for a great dual of care
ful and scientific study. 'I he ideal to be is,
of course, not tbe nurest possible ap
proach to tbe line of money (retting, but a
maximum of good at a minimum of cost,
ani it is to be hoped that the entrance fee
next year to the fair will be twenty five
cents. . "' . f .... .
A Rare Religious, Book.
tbe "attention of the Dsmocbat Is call-
edito the following recently in the San
Francisco Call. The Albert Butro men
tioned Is a brother of Mrs. Julias Grad
wohl, of this sity: On account of its
length the Democrat is able to give only
enough . to show tbe importance of tbe
work referred to.
Among tbe many interesting books
and manuscripts of ancient, modern and
Oriental literature in tbe Butro library
there is one that some time since es
pecially drew the attention1 of Albert
Satro, who is a great lover of ancient
literature. It is a chronology, a history
of the world, written in Hebrew, begin
ningjwith Adam to the year 1692 A. D..
and published in Frankfort-on-tbe-Main
in 1696.:. The title of the book is "Zem
ach David, or Branch of David." The
author is David Gans. In the preface
he quotes tbe authors from whom be has
drawn, and he also says that he has bad
access to sources unknown to other his
torians. A learned Oriental scholar
who visited tbe library several years ago
remarked that he had seen this book,
"Zemach David," mentioned in a pub
lication connected with tbe Vatican
Tbe high importance of some pass
ages in this book caused Mr. Satro to
enter into m correspondence with the
Vatican at Rome. Editions of later
dates, which are a histoi leal continua
tion of the original work, do not contain
some of the facte which are given in tbe
first and second original editions. It is
supposed that few of the latter are in ex
istence. Christ's birth at Bethlehem,
Jadea, is stated in tbia book as 1 A. D..
corresponding to tbe year 3761 of the
creation, the forty-second year of tbe
reign of tbe Roman Emperor Augustas,
and among the various opinions con
cerning the date tbia ia the accepted one
and it was contemporaneous as given in
the text with the time in which lived
Rabbi Jochanan,the son of Rabbi Saecai.
According to another source in the text,
named the "Book of Genealogy," on
page 17, tbe earlier date. 3671, ia given
as Christ's birth, a difference of ninety
years between the two dates 3761 and
3761 ; and yet, according to a very old
writing mentioned in the passage, bis
birth waa thirty-three years earlier than
the last given date, 3761, which would
bring it down to tbe year 3618, altogether
a difference oi 143 years between the ac
cepted date, 3761, and the last mention
ed one, 3618. In reference to tbe last
difference of S3 years the text is inter
esting. It says that a discussion took
place between bis Hlins the Pope and
Don Tidal concerning the following
words in tbe passage upon which this
difference of 61 years ia based as follows :
"Know thou, further that I have found
written in an old, very old writing at tbe
boose of my brother-in-law, Abraham
Nurtum, of blessed memory as follows:
'In tbe year 3724 tbe Christ was captur
ed, and In the year 3532 be was crucified,
etc., etc'" Inasmuch as these two
events took place within twenty- four
hours, it follows that these two dates
3724 and 3532, are one and the same year,
and this is explained in tbia passage by
a moon calculation or lunation onknowo
3791 (A. D ) Jesos Christ was born at
Bethlem Jehoda, one and a half etads
distant from Jerusalem, in tbe year
3761 of the creation. In the forty-eecnod
year of the reign of tbe Emperor Augus
tus, and according to the date was his
birth contemporaneous with the time in
which lived Rabbi Simeon, tbe son of
Rabbi Killel, and Rabbi Jochanan, the
eon of Rabbi Saecai. and from this date
begins tbe Christian chronology, and in
tbe Book of Genealogy, page 17, it is
written that be was born in tbe year
Concerning the importance of this
light (root ancient liieraiare Mr. Satro
writes to The Call :
While a diflerence of ninety years or
mors In the birth of Christ doe not
change the high importance of his teach
inga, it may have some bearing on th
contemporaneous history of those times.
The principles, enjoying a belief in Uod
and tbe observance of tbe moral rales,
Christ intended, should be made iutelli

Mt. Tacoma or Mt. Rainier? Which?
It came to pass, in the third year of
the reign of Gruvvr Cleveland, I resident
of tbe Coited Stales of America, that a
certain man, not 1000 miles from Albany,
wrote a very profound article in regard
to tho name of the mountain in tbe State
of Washington, which some rait Rainier,
and others Tacoma. Tbe author's trsin of
thought led me ta suppose he was an
Englishman, a great admirer of anything
that is"eo English you know," or at
some tims baa been a resident of Seattle,
Washington. Aovone of these suppo
sitions woald be saflBcieot to account for
bis belief that tbe proper name of the
mocntain is Rainier. His reason, bow
ever, for so calling it did not convioce me
that Rainier is the name by which the
mountain was first called. I am vert
much inclined to the belief, that it wa
called Tacoma long before tbe people of
tbe North West ever heard of Admiral
Rainier, in honor ef whom tbe moun
tain is said to have Men named. Wmle
a resident of Sumner, Wasbiogten, about
00 miles from tbe grand old mountain, I
learned that the name originally given
it by the Indians of that region of the
country was Tacoma (accent on the last
syllable) and that the word means" ooar
Uhlng bread.'' To me the name is not
only beautiful hut very significant; and
the more I listed opon it towering in all
its grandeur 14,444 feet towards the
heavens, with its summit covered with
eternal snow, and 1 thought of the appro
priateness of the name given it' by the
Indians, tbs more steadfastly 1 adhere
to the name Tacoma.
: "Like, a sentinel on doty
- Rises up the mountain grand;
Snow capped, grim and cold forever,
Watcbiog over a prosperous land.",
And I. am very much inclined to the
opinion that the city of Tacoma took its
name from tbe Icdian name of this grsnd
old sentinal Instead of the mountain's,
taking its nams from the city, which on
ly a few years ago was a very small vil
lage, 1 propose, therefore, to continue
to say Mount i acorn a, even n, a; some
future time, I sboj'd become a reoldeot

There are men and men in the world,
and many kinds of them ; but the num
ber whose lives reach out and br their
nobliity affect an entire community Is
not many. During the week that Is end
ing one passed from this life into tbe
next whose life was so broad fn its in
fluence as to touch all those who in any)
way came In contact with it. There are
no perfect lives; bat tbe Dbmociat
knows of none that come closer to it
than that of Dr. Irvine. His was a big
character in every sense, one that secur
ed the respect of all men, no matter
what their position, and as well the
smallest child" loved him because of the
metal of his heart. He waa an optim
ist all through, and it was sunshine to
be near him. He looked on tbe bright
side of affairs, and picked tbe best in
men's characters Instead of the worst, at
is the habit of many. He was the friend
of all men and yet tbe enemy of all that
was evil, his daily me was as much a
sermon as those presented on the Bab-
bath. All men spoke well of him. A
business man, not a church member,
said to as after Dr. Irvine's death :
"He was what I call a Cbristaln."
A great many men passing as Chris-
tains are not considered such bv the
world at latge, bat no one ever ques
tioned bis right to the title in the fullest
sense As his whole active life was a
sublime one, so also the last three years
of illness were spent in a beautiful man
ner, displaying the wonderful depth of
bis convictions. Most men are soon for
gotten, but Dr. Irvine will be remem
bered with loving kindness by many so
long as life lasts.
The ThlrJaTcrm Tradition.
Wj al remember bow the dominating
power of Conkling in New York, Cam
eron in Pennoylvanie, and of Logan in
Illinois, extorted from the conventions of
those States a demand for Uie nomination
of Grant; bow other States followed this
lead: bow theriends of tbe movement
were denounced as "RestorationisU,"
snd "Imperialists"; bow they persisted
in their effort to the very last; bow in
tbe Chicago Convention they never cast
less than 303 votes and race cast 313;
and bow by their persistence they forced
that compromise which resulted in the
nomination of Garfield. AH these things
are still fresh In our memories, and
being so, it is not a little strange that a
serious effort should be on foot to give a
third term to Mr. Cleveland. Tbe fears
which tormented the founders of the Re
public have long since vanished. We d
not believe that our democratic institu
tions can ever be subverted by any occu
pant of the White House. We stand in
no dread that the day will come when
some smccrssfal general or some unscru
pulous politician will first seite tbe Pres
idency and then use its great power to
set np a life long dictatorship, or evtab-
liah a kingdom, on tbe ruins of tbe repub
lic. Yet there Is no reason to believe
that tbe old time antipathy to a third
term is one wb!t less strong than it ever
was. Any sane man will admit that tbe
bank, or tbe railroad company, or the
eorporatin of any sort Ibat should dts
oaiae a tired and abe presidency merely
becaue tbe stockholders bad twice
placed him ia tbe executive chair, would
deserve financial ruin. No tendency in
tbe batinees world is more marked than
tbe constant effort to find men pre-emin-entlv
fitted to carry on certain lines of
butine . and to place tbe management
of such concerns entirely in their hands.
But the common sense ra'.rs bich gov
era tbe selection of the president of a
corporation do not apply in tbe election
of tbe President of the United Stale.
Our Pieside nts are not chosen because
of their fitness, but because of their
availability. Some are dark horses;
some are nominated because they alone
can reconcile contending factions; some
because tbey can carry pivotal SUle.
Others are forced oa tbe voters by tbe
machine, la theory this is all wrong.
In practice no harm come from It.
Under our system of government we do
not want, we d.tnot need a President of
extraordinary ability: the average man
is good enough, and for him two terms
?s ample. We want a strong government
o' the p ople by th -t people, not a gov
ernment of tbe p.ple by a s'roog man.
and we ought nnt to tolerate anything
which has even'the semblance of here
dity. The advocates of a third term for
Mr Cleveland ailldowell to remember
the doctrine of the itinstrtong Icnnder
of their party, that "in no office can ro
tation be more expedient.' Pr-ieneor

Once upon a time, Samantha Jones,
an anmarried lady of uncertain age, ap
peared on the witness stand in the court
room. O.ieof tbe lawyers asked her

she did not know The lawyer thought
it was very strange tbs she did not

there was nothing strange aboct it, aod

and that hearsay testimony was not ad

My.memory is no tatter than that of
Samantha Jones. All that I know alo.u

tbe activities of a busy world, ia what I
bavs been told by others. I have been
told that I am a native of Sheffield, Eng
land, and that I came to America when
I was qiite young, landing in New Or
leans, La . There, in the course of time,
I made the acquaintance of an Ameri
can, a native of Washington county. Fa,
ho took a fancy to me ; and I have
been his constant companion for a long
time, going t? aod iro with him up and
down npon the earth. In my rovings,. I
have traveled on ocean steamers and
sailing vrstele, on river ateamsrs and
canal boats, on railroads and horse cars,
on electric cable cars, in carriages and
stage coaches, on horses and mules, and
last, bat not least, of all, on Walker's
line. I have resided in seven states and
one territory, and traveled in thirty five
states and all the territories of the U S.
A. except Alaska. I have been In Cen
tral America, Mexico and Canada, and
in all my ramblings on oceans, lakes and
rivets, over mountains, plains and bills,
not less than 100,000 miles in the aggre
gate, I have neither met with an acci
