Protection acts as a robbery of the
laboring man and th man receiving
wages, The agriculturist lias no pro
tection exonpt prtttontiously on wool,
while he has to pay seventy-five to one
hundred per cent on the woolen good
he must ne?ds have. Tho daylaborer
receiving a wage, or the mechanic, car
penter, shoemaker and men on a salary
all have no protection and all are com
pelled to pay from twenty-five to sixty
per cent of what they rocoive in the
increased price of goods which are pro
tected, and which they are obliged to
I visited the house of a friend of
mine in Toledo the other day, who had
a family of several children. Ho had
a wage of $1,50 a day, bringing him in
a year, an income of $450. I a.sked
him how much ho paid for the clothing
of his family. He said $100 at least
I told him he could have those clothes
in Canada for $75. I demonstrated to
him that he paid in a year nearly $200
more for articles required by himself
and family than they could have pur
chased for in Canada. I told him that
this was the nefarious result of the
protective tarilT. He said that this
was a new light to him, and that
he would tell his neighlwrs and friends
that the protective tariff was taking
nearly one-half their wages which the
Government did not receive (because
these goods were manufactured in
America, and therefore puid no duty
to the Government,) but which went
into the pockets of the home manufac
turers. The result of a protective tariff for
twenty years have been the robbery of
all men on waees of from one-half to
one-third of what they have received
with no advantage to compensate for
the loss to any,, unless it be those who
are employed in the manufacturing in
dustries whose products are protected.
But. tlioso men are out of employment
a greater portion of the time, and for
the lust ten years. I will undertake to
to show, the average wages of the
men in such manufacturing industries
have been less duily thun those of the
same persons similarly employed for
the last ten years preceding 1800 un
der a revenue tariff. Hon. Frank
Tillard'i Orcao Raits.
In conversation with a Portland
merchant last week' he mentioned to us
the fact of having some cases of mer
chandise come from New York to Ore
gon, coming across too continent by
rail and from San Prancisco on the
steamer. Ho cave us the figures on
his freight bill, from which it appears
that for carrying the goods from San
Franoisco to Portland, seven hundred
miles, by cheap water transportation,
Villard had charged and collected more
than one-third as much as the entire
charge for the three thousand miles by
rail from New York to San Francisco.
Now, when we consider that if the
whole distance transported had been
all railroad, Villard would have tx-en
entitled to less than one fifth of the
rates; yet, for less that one-fifth of the
distance, and over the only piece of
cheap water line on the route, he takes
nearly one-third the entire charges.
We begin to see how he is grinding the
people of Oregon on every hand and
proving hiinself to lie the worst mono
polist in the United States. In this
way every man, woman and child in
in the State is compiled to pay un
just charges on all groceries, dry goods,
hardware, agricultural implements, and
everything used or consumed in the
New Postal Card.
The new postal card for private cor
respondence differs from the ordinary
postal card mainly in having attached
to the upper edge a flap of light brown
paper, the lower edge of which is
touched with mucilage, tho same as the
flap of an envelope. After the message
is wr'.'ien on the card the flap is turned
ovtr and sealed at the lattom. This
effectually screens the message from
curious eyes and at the same time
leavps the ends open, according to the
requirements of second-class mail mat

It was -nothing strange that the
Republican Stato Central Committee
excluded reporters at its meeting yes
terday. The committee is created for
the purpose of calling a convention,
apportioning tho State and do such
other business as the public has a right
to know. Put this does not include all
that is done at a Republican committee
meeting. The slate is made out in full
at this meeting by those in command,
and the members return home to thoir
constituents to report what they have
been instructed to do, and prepare their
ticket for delegates to ratify tho ticket
selected. Wo are informed that there
was such a difference of opinion on the
candidate for Congress that the com
inittee hud to leave that choice to the
convention in a measure, but the rest
of the ticket was settled upon. Lord.
Karhart and Hi inch got away with it,
while Powell was shelved for Prof.
McElroy of Denton. Peekman has
the lead for Governor, closely pressed
by Moody; but there are combinations
threatened by Mallory and Hare which
promise to be rather troublesome to
our Republican friends. Mallory
wants to go to Congress. Hare wants
to get the nomination for Governor,
Both have a strong following, but
George's friends insist on his re nomi
nation, while Cap. Humphrey claims to
hold tho winning hand. He is a hold
over Senator. Aspirants for the Sen
ate cannot afford to antagonize him.
The programme as now arranged will
not lie bo satisfactory as to keep down
future troublo, and wo shall expects
lively time from now until the conven
tion meets, by the different factions to
get the delegates. Tho Hill-Thompson
element did not have enough strength
iu the committee to bring it into promi
nence. It may be stroii-rcr iu the con
vention. It was a cunning trick to get
Capt Humphrey out for Congress in
order to sinch our friend Tom Mon
tcith from Linn. We are not satisfied
that Tom will appreciate that kind of
treatment There is lots of fun in tliu
Lcup for Libtriy.
Wednesday Feb 21, about 11:30 A.
M., as the north bound train from
Iloseburg passed Harrisburg, a prisoner
by the name of Henry Graham, sen
tenced by his honor, Judge I farina, to
two years in tho Stato Penitentiary,
from Jackson county for lurceny, and
in charge of Special Deputy Sheriff 15.
Seyhert, asked permission to go to the
water closet, wliiuh was granted. As
soon as he entered Jio immediately
locked the door, opened the window and
jumped out, the train being in full mo
tion and running at about the rate of
25 miles per hour. The Deputy Sher
iff saw him jump, and immediutely
informed Conductor liogart, who
stopped the train and backed up to
where he jumped off. Tho gentlemen
on board all knowing of the escape,
alighted from the cars and assisted ill
the search. The prisoner was soon
found, hid in a ditch but a short dis
tance from the track. He gave up,
was taken back to the train aud
brought on to the Penitentiary, where
he now languishes. Considering the
fact that his legs were chained together
and the truin passing along at full
speed, it is a wonder that he was not
instantly killed or seriously injured,
but he escaped without Wing hurt in
the least, except lieing covered with
mud. The Deputy Sheriff who saw
him jump says that he turned several
sommertault before lighting in the
mud. It was indeed a desperate leap
A bill has been introduced in the
Senate by Grover for the organization
of Southeastern Alaska and esta'dish
ment of a civil government therefor.
It provides for the appointment of a
U. S. District Attorney with exclusive
powers over the district. The bill ex
tends the general laws of Oregon over
the district, so far as they may be ap
plicable and not conflict with the pro
visions of the bill, and provides for the-
election of a delegate to Congress in

Lou of Ibe Corsica.
Standard, Feb 21st
By dispatches received in this city
yesterday, it was learned that tht
British ship "Corsica," Capt. Veasey,
ladeu with wheat, sank outside the
bar of the Columbia yesterday morn
ing at 5 o'clock. She left Astoria on
Monday evening in tow of a tug, and
while crossing the bar on an ebb tide,
struck several times, three times heav
ily, causing her to spring a leak. When
the tug left her she had 33 inches of
water in her hold, and at 5 o'clock she
sank. The officers and crew took to the
lioats and arrived safely at Astoria.
The "Corsica" was a .wooden ship 778
tons register;, built at Quebec in 1869,
and alao.Ht entirely rebuilt last rear.
Her cargoconsisted of 26,320 cental,
of wheat and was insured in the Com
mercial Union Co. for 7,140 and in
the London Provincial for 3,000. She
was drawing 20 fet of water, and
should never have started to cross th
liar on an ebb tide.
