The grand jury at Seattle last week
indicted Uat. Finlayson of the baik
Hattie E. Tapley, for obstructing a
United States officer in the discharge
of his duty. The crew of the bark
libeled the vessel for wages, and the
captain refused a United States offi-- r
accommodations in the cabin, telling
him to go to the forecastle or quarter
deck. The British officer was very in
solent, and has been put under 200
bonds for libel, and $1000 for obstruct
ing a United States officer.
friinee calling attention a few weeks
ago to the propriety of electing Gee.
H. Williams t the United States Sen
ate, we have received several letters
from various parts cf the State, stating
that the republicans in those different
localities are mostly in favor of the
election of Williams. This shows that
the rank and file of the party want to
see his election. Railroad corporations
and their lackies, and those desiring to
use a United States Senator for their
own special favors do not want him be
cause they know they can not use him.
A letter now before me from one of
the most prominent republicans of
Clackamas county after discussing the
situation says the "sentiment here is
niwstly for Williams. Every repul li
can who studies the situation of affaiis
both Xational and State, readily reefg
nizes the fact that Williams who was
the United States Senator during the
time when the rebels were endeavoring
to break up this government and
through the trying times of reconstruc
tion, gained a valuable experience
which qualifies him to be the more
servicable than any other person, now
at a time when those who, twenty
years ago, were trying to shoot the
government to pieces, are now in the
foremost positions, endeavoring to ad
minister, what before they were trying
to tear down.
Of the Nesv York election the Her
ald says: "The president holds his own
state." The Tribune says: "The dem
ocrats retain New York. Hill has
been elected by a figure so handsome as
to make the beggarly plurality which
the sUite gave President Cleveland al
most invisible. The return of the
voters whom Mr. Blaine's candidacy
alienated did not make good to the re
publican party the loss this year of
voters whom that, candidacy attracted. who loan through agents and charge a

From an exchange was copied with
out comment into the editorial columns
of the Gazette last week the follow
ing: "If the legislature would reduce
legal interest to 8 per cent., peihaps
some of the capital now loaned out
would find its way into new manufac
turing enterprises." The Gazette is
not in accord with the sentiment of the
abova quotation, because the experi
ence of time proves that such is not
the fact, for legal interest is already re
duced to 8 percent., and has been so
reduced for eight years. When that
reduction was made, money was plenty
in Oregon and large quantities thereof,
was seeking loans for eight per cent,
and any one who had anything like
reasonably good security could borrow
all the money they wanted from eight

Washington, Oct. 26, 18S5.
. Another official head has fallen, ami
one of the most conspicuous opportun
ities to show friendship for Civil Ser
vice reform has been thrown away.
The victim, in this instance, is Assistant-Secretary
Coon. He has b en
recognized as the active, working chief
of the Treasury department under sev
eral heads, and no man has ever held
the position who has evinced more fi
dclity in the discharge of his duties.
When the change of administration
occurred, Mr. Coon went to Secretary
Manning frankly, and proposed to re
sign his place, saying that he had al-
more difficult to obtain, until borrow
ers cannot be accommodated at all, and
those who do secure loans, are only
able to get them after much delay and
great expense, and still manufactories
have not increased by reason of such
reduction in interest, and the reduction
of interest will not increase anything,
but will simply have the tendency as
it always has done, to drive the money
to more favorable localities. The fact
of the matter is, Oregon people are not
skilled in manufacturing, and to expect
to drive their money into manufactur
ing or any other investments about
which the owners of the money are not
versed, is a mistaken idea; for men do
not accummulate capital by investing
it in something about which they know
nothing, but they do accomplish finan
cial results by putting their money in
to investments vhich they know and
understand. In order for Oregon to
advance in m mufacturing interests she
must first have come among us people
skilled in different manufacturing in
dustries with sufficient capital to par
tially carry the respective industries in
which they areskilled. People thus skill
ed if found worthy can no doubt find
Oregon capital to join them. It is a
mistaken idea that is occasionally found
that an act of the legislature by reduc
ing the standard of legal interest can
regulate money and thus force inen in
to other investments. You might as
well try to make a man by legislative
unactment ell his horse worth two
hundred dollars for fifty. If you thus
li.ni the value of a man's horse below
its prst value, in an Oregon market, he
will take it to Washington Territory
or to Idaho, where he can get its full
value, and go it is with the man who
desires to loan his money; if Oregon
people do not want to borrov it at its
full value, and they through the legis
lature attempt to put its value down
below its worth, the man can not be
prevented from taking his money
where he pleases, and hence he takes
it to Washington Territory and Idaho
and other localities where people are
willing to pay the value thereof and
this is what makes in a great measure
the scarcity of money in Oregon and
which is causing man? a good man to
equalled one-third or one-fourth the
loss. Tho stay-at-home voters decided
the matter. The vote was light, but
the republicans who did not take the
trouble to vote outnumbered the demo
crats. Avery much smaller vote than
was cast for Mr. Blaine would have
sufficed to bury Mr. Hill, but the re
publicans were not around to cast such
a vote. But the republican phalanx is
neither routed nor broken. A signifi
cant gain in Oneida shows it is more
heartily united than it has been at any
other time for many years, and, though
beaten on the state ticket, it holds
both branches of the state legislature
by strong majorities. A severe storm
, in the interior, which made the vote
slighter, did not cost the republicans
any seats in the legislature. The. plain
truth seems to be that republican vot
ers did not expect to succeed this year
against the concentration of power bv
the administration to save itself, and
therefore did not make the efforts nec
essarv to success.
Two or three ladies and a like number of
gentlemen who are experts in canvassing
and who desire work of that kind and who
can furnish reliable reference as to their
ways been a Republican and always
to ten per cent. Since that reduction expected to be one. The inexperienced
coupled with the mortgage tax law, M'"- Manning especially requested Mr.
money has gradually become scarce and U!,ou to remain, assuring him that he
would be ol the greatest service, ami
that his remaining would be considered
in the light of a favor.
Mr. Coon's retention in office has
been one great source of the confidence
the Civil Service Reformers continue to
profess in the sincerity of the Cleveland
administration. They pointed to his
case as resembling that of the Under
Secretaries in the English Government
who remain through all changes of Cab
Thus the party abandons its Civil
Service hypocrisy. Mr. Coon goes,
not from any dissatisfaction with any
official act, but because Mr. Cleveland
wants Democrats around him, and be
cause Mr. Coon's services are not quite
as indispensable now as they were to
the raw men who took charge of the
government eight mouths ago.
The ideal Democratic Presideut is a
dispenser of public plunder as the per
sonal perquisites ol politicians, It
Would be impossible to educate the
average Democrat up to ttiU. iefi rin
theory whch the D.smocKttic party
professed last year in order to get the
i'ew hundred bolting Republican votes,
which saved ir. from defeat. They
hunger for the flesh pots, and have pro
touud contempt for any theory of re
form that does not hinge on spoils.
Genera! Rosecrans, the registrar oi
the Treasury, has succeeded in getting
his office into a miserable tangle. Work
cm scarcely go on there by reason of
the removal of efficient Republican
subordinates, and the appointment of
incompetent Democrats to their places.
! Again, history repeats itself. As a
military commander in Tennessee, it
will lie remembered, Ci n. Rosecrans
got his army into a similar fix, and hail
to be displaced.
Senator Sherman stopped in Wash
ington on his way to Virginia, where
he is going to add a few last touches to
the campaign. He was serenaded at
the Ebbitt House by some of his many
friends in Washington.
Tae Postmaster-General has gone to
Wisconsin to attend the funeral of his
sister. .Secretary Whitney his gone to
New York to register. Secretary Bay
ard has been acting host to Dr. Curry
luring the week, and the latteris mak
be sold out under the hammer, when if' ing arrangements to sail for Spain on
he was permitted to boi row money for I his recent I v appointed mission. Secre
tary Mantling is studying hard in or
der that he may, w hen Congress meets,
be able to answer some of the questions
which will be propounded by the astute
financial students, wdio compose the
Senate Finance Committee. The way
he carries himself before the committee
a time, and pay its value, he could af
ter awhile work out and save his prop,
erty. The usury law is in favor of a
few local men throughout the country,
of interest, but it never operates in fa
vor of the poor man, who borrows and
pays for the money. If you do not
believe it, ask the needy borrowers and
see if he can not point you to some
brokers office where he paid a bonus
amounting to morethan the legal inter
est. That inevitable law of nature,
that of supply and demand regulates
will have much to do with his future
standing. The duties of the Secretary
of the Treasury are probably mote ex
acting than those of any other Cabinet
position, and the interest to see how
Mr. Manning will deport himself this
w inter is not surprising.
The Capitol is already being put in
the market value of commodities, and I readiness for Cougress, which meets in
you might as well try to legislate the
value of w heat or cabbage, as to legis
late the value ot money. One will
succeed as well as the other. The
mortgage tax law was passed for the
purpose of n quiring those loaning
money on landed security to pay taxes
thereon, the interest of which seems to
have been for a good purpose, for there
is no just reason why loan companies
should not pay their just proportion of
taxation, in the localities where they
are doing business and where their cap
ital is receiving the protection of the
laws; but the operation and effect of
the law has been to drive mo.iey out
of the country, to break down the bus
iness of the country, to make money
scarce and to give .the bonus men a
chance to charge still higher and high-
six week?. The comfort of those who
serve their country in both ends of the
building is to be more closely attended
to at the next session than heretofore.
Both the Senate and the House will
have new carpets. The cloak rooms,
those indispensable accessories to legis
lation, where Congressmen gather,
smoke, joke, and otherwise entertain
each other, are being newdy frescoed
and furnished. An additional softness
and sans sonci touch, as it were, is be
ing given to the lounges that lurk in
The House is envious of the Sen
ate's luxuries, and given to imitating
them. Last year the Senate removed
