If claims will win the speaker
ship fight, Mills will have a walk
over, but most people have an idea
that it is votes and not wild claims
f hat will settle the business. Mr.
Mills has a corner on "claims,"
but how he is fixed with votes
remains to be seen. As Mills
would make about as - unfit
6peaker as it would be possible to
select we trust that the democrats
will elect him. His occupancy of
the speaker's chair would make
thousands of republican votes.

Present indications are that the
Parnell envoys will not collect
enough money in America to pay
their individual expenses. This is
not because American sympathy
for Ireland is waning, but because
Americans refuse to endorse the
dishonorable private acts ot Mr.
Major McKinlky in a recent
speech stated the tariff situation in
four lines as well as it could be
done in four columns. He said
'JNothing 1 can say or the new
tariff can help it. Nothing its en
emies say can hinder it. Its oper
ations alone can do it hurt."
If this country isn't the best in
the world, particularly for those
compelled to work for a livelihood.
why is it that the working people
of Canada, Newfoundland, Cuba,

goes are an indication that the
people are beginning to under
stand the benefits of the tariff bill
bearing his name, which was so
unblushingly lied about last fall.

Let us put up a sign at Castle Gar-

we are amending things in this

that these people who spit upon
our flag and in the faces of our
people are summarily sent out of
the country. They '.want exactly
reciprocal rights, they say, and
they know it to be true that no
American would be permitted to
print in Italy against that govern
ment and its people the insults
and falsehoods and threats which
have been printed in the Italian
papers here against this govern
ment and its people. This is an
abuse of the hospitality these peo
ple have enjoyed here. We did
not invite them to come to our
country, rhey came of their own
accord. The most of them never
knew how a full belly felt till they
got here. The lowest class of
them, organized into a murder
society, fries to control the highest
and best class through fear of
assassination. Ihere are many
worthy Italians in America, men
and women acceptable to the citi
zenship of any nation on earth,
but the amnestied brigands and
azzaroni are just now posing as

ages of the Huns and Slavs in the

might imagine the tenth cent ury

maintained against the assaults of
barbarians, but there is no need to
waste any sympathy on the pro
tected mine owners and manufac
turers whose property is threaten
ed by this uprising. They im
ported these hordes of savages to
this country to keep down the
wages of American workmen.
They violated law and public
policy to do it. They herd their

down wages Now

The Astorian says the Farmer's
Alliance people have yet a good
deal to learn about practical pol
itics. Farmer Dowell, the treasur
er of the Farmer's Alliance in Ar-
Itansaw was buncoed out of $3000
of the Alliance funds last Thurs
day. It was the same old game,
the cards, the sharper, the steerer
and the goose, Dowell playing the
goose with disheartening success.

pleasure with which Americans
witness his departure if he will

Upper Willamette shippers are
greatly disappointed at the with

from that route. They had hoped
much in the way of lower freights

the Northwest had no sooner be

one of its boats down to get a

soon declared by which the Ore
