The Cause of It
The Pentou Leader clearly and aucetuctly
states the causes of thu defeat of tho Demo
cratic party. Its comments apply exactly to
ljee county in every particular It says:
If Oregon had gone Republican by its
usual majority, there would have been uo
need to seek for causes of the result. Hut
it has gone It publican by such itu increased
niijoiitv is to iiid'i ale some iin-sual causes.
Tin y are not hard to find
One cause is the notion industriously in
sisted on by the Oregonian that the admin
ihtiation whs making a special effort to curry
Oieon. It was urged with such persis
tence that not only Republicans believed it,
but the Peiuooi'its built up hopes that we
should have aid from the uutional commit
tee. For this notion there was not the sem
blance of proof. Tim coming of Col. Irish
was made the pretext for the usseition. No
aid was rendered by our 1'asturu friends as
we happen to ku iw. Hut the notion w as
suflb'ient to awaken all the party Bpirit of
the Republicans. That is one cause.
Another is that the seltlsh interests nud
errourous ideas of woolgrowers induct d them
to desi rt the Democrats iu a body ou free
wool. While party spirit, induced by the
notion above tin iiUoiied. held the revenue
reform Republicans iu line with their party,
the Democratic protectionists parted compa
ny with us. It was a loss without compensa
tion. Another cause was the use of money. The
evidences are open, mid palpable that s
large Republican suck was distributed. The
golden arguments were sown nil over this
county. A double eaglo is the hardest thing
to relute in the world. It can be refuted
only by two more double eagles. The Dem
ocrats debated that line as far as their means
would allow, but (he sack was light. The
arguments were Dotal bund.
In the face of the result, the wonder is
that the Democrats could have had a hope
of winning. Never was political prophecy
so much at fault. Never did the Democracy
of Oregon enter the tight with more hope of
at least reducing the usual Republican ma
jority. We are ull oil' on both county ami
Of course the result detsrmiues the electo
ral vote of Oregon. Nothiug but a miracle
would give ns the state in November. Ori
gin! is safely Republican until the tariff shall
have Iwen reduced aud the benefits there
from shall have been seen to be beneficial to
our state. The outcome is inevitable,
Iu the tueantimo, the Diuiocrats must
keep up the fight on the ssme line if it takes
all summer. The reduction of war tuxes is
the plank we must stand on. From now un
til November we must continue the discuss
ion. We have r canon and right ou our side.

What is tho Mill Hill?
The high-tariff organs have hastened to
announce thai iu indorsing the Mills bill the
Democratic Convention demand, d free trade,
Possibly they think they are telling the
truth, although they would lose the benefit
of that charitable presumption if thev knew
the meaning either of free trade or of the
The tariff proposed by Mr Mills is fully
twice ns high as any iu force in any other
important country" in the woild. Wo are
often informed that all the continental coun
tries of Europe are protectionists. So they
are, but it hardly becomes those who tell us
so to call a tariff twice as hili as that in
force in ntiy of them a free-trade scheme.
If the Mills bill should become a law it
would give us a higher average rate of duties
than we ever had in our history before the
war, except during the brief period from
1821 to 1SJ5. It was by the wonderful pros
perity of its long low-tariff life that the
United States guiued the admiring envy of
The Mills bill proposes a higher rate of
duties thau those levied by thu (anions Mor
rill tariff of lN'il a war measure which was
generally considered so extravugunt that its
author said it was only n temporary resource
(or the extraction ot an extraordinary reve
line, and would naturally censo as soon ns
the war was over. That author now sits in
the Senate and calmly joins his Republican
colleagues iu denouncing the Mills bill as an
enactment of "free trade."
The reduction in duties made by the Mills
bill is less thau that which the Republican
I uriff Commission said was necessary. That
commission, composed ot faithful ptotection
isU, appointed by a Republican President,
by authority of a Republican Congress, re
ported that its investigation had convinced
It of the necessity of a reduction of "5 per
cent. The law of 1M83, passed to make a
show of accomplishing Kotnethitig, made no
reduction at all, The average rate of duty is
now higher than it was when tho commission
made its report. The Mills bill proposes a
reduction of about 15 per cent. in other
words, it goes a little moie than half as fur
as the Republican Tariff Cumuiis-ion.
That is thu Mills bill. It has faults, but
they are uot ou the sido ot free trade. 8. F.

San Francisco, June 5. For some time
the merchrnta of Southern Oregon have been
Comprising of the action of the postal au
thorities iu sending registered matter from
San Francisco 2.000 miles by way of Ogden,
rather than by the direct route over the Cal
ifornia & Oregou railway. Samuel Flint,
chiif clerk of the railway and mail service,
exp'aius that the longest route is resorted
to because on it there is a continuous rua of
postal clerks, who receipt for all registered
pouches, Iu this manner the sufety of all
registered matter is secured, the system of
receipts furnishing au excellent means of
tracing it in case of loss or theft. All regis
tered mail from this city dispatched to
Southern Oregon is inclosed iu "through"
pouches, sealed, and cannot be sent over the
California k Oregon, as the postal clerks do
not make "through" runs, but stop off at
way stations. James L. Wilder is now try

Senator Hoar of Massachusetts proposes '
a novel army regulation, iu the shape of a
law providing that in time of peace no mar

bis wife's permission. The Israelites bad a
rule that applied in time of war, by which, a
man was compelled to stay home a year af
ter his msrriago, and theu he could joiu the
army. It has been supposed that this regula
tion was for the purpose ot giving him a
chance to learn bow to .fight before he enter

The swellest thing that baa appeared in
collars for several years has recently been
introduced in Portlaud. It is known as the
"Purgatory" collar, and probably owes its
name to the fact it keeps men having thick
necks and double chins out of the purgatory
into which the conventional collar has
plunged them. It is a combination of a
turn-down and stsnd-up collar. It is simply
a low straight collar, with lapped ends sur
mounted at the sides and back with flaring
top. into which a big chiu caa nestle com
fortable without breakiug either the chin or
A man fell overboard iu the harbor of San
Fruncisco the other day, aud sunk to the
bottom In eighteen feet of water. He re
mained there twelve minutes when the body
was recovered by grappling-hooks. Efforts
to restore breathing were at once begun, and
after an hour and a half of constant work,
he was brought back to life, although he bad
been supposed to be dead. This cose shows
that under iub lligeut treatment there is of
ten a chance for the recovery of persons ap
parently drowned. The first effort should
be to restore breathing, aud after that,
warmth and and circulation.
A lot of the biggest salmon ever taken on
the Columbia river was received at Cathlam
et Friday. In the lot ot 4500 pounds there
were forty that averaged fifty-five pounds
each, and fonr that aversged siiiy-eight
pounds. When a sixty pound salmon ia
regarded as a monster, some idea can be
gained of the extraordinary size of this
catch, which is without a parallel! in the his
tory of the salmon business on the Colum
bia. The postmaster at Cowletz, reports that
Mount St. Helens is smoking. A grayish
smoke or steam cm be plainly seen issuing
