President Harrison'" mcHmigo to
congress bcaro the marks of careful
and studious labor, and taken ns a
whole is an ablo document. Atten
tion is called to our imbroglios
with Great Britain in Ikhring sea,
Italy, and Chili, and tho liojie held
out that all tho troubles will lc sat
isfactorily settled by diplomacy.
Our reciprocity treaties with Spain,
Brazil and San Domingo are called
to attention with information that
negotiations are pending with other
countries. The president alludes
to tho smuggling of Chinese into
tho United States across boundary
lines and asks that appropriate leg
islation bo made in regard to the
A statistical defenso is attempted
to be made of tho McKinley. bill.
No account is made of tho immense
crops of the past year that have
promoted trado far beyond tho or
ilinnrv limit: no account is made
of tho starving millions of Euroj
that must have our surplus gran
products at any prico they can m
sibly afford to pay; no account is
made of tho fact that the great part
of tho wealth tlius secured irom our
roductions do not remain in tin
lands of the producer, but must U
paid to the manufacturer for urti
clcs of everyday necessity, in
creased ereatlv in prico by an ex
orbitant tariff. Juggling with
figures is not a new phaso of polit-
. ical chicanery and rresiueni Jiur
rison is not above it.
Tho silver question is dwelt up
on with tho hope that the present
law will bo allowed to stand for
further trial. He shows his strong
preference for mono-metallism but
at tho same time quannes ins siaie
menta so as to givo hope and en
couragement to bi-metallists. Fig
ures of silver production and coin
ago and use ol the same are intro
duced that can bo used with good
effect on either side of tho ques
tion. Tho defunct forco bill is de
fended and tho old'- cry frauds
against suffrage reiterated. He
believes ''it would bo possible
to constitute a commission, n6n
partisan in its membership and
composed of patriotic, wiso and im
partial men, to whom a considera
tion of the question of tho evils
connected with our election system
and methods might bo committed
with good prospects of securing
unanimity in somo plan for reliev
ing or mitigating these evils. Tho
constitution would permit the
selection to be vested in a supremo
court if that method would give
tho best guarantee of impartiality.
This commission should be charged
with tho duty of inquiring into the
Bubject of elections as relating to
choice of officers of the national
government with a view of secur
ing to every elector free and unmo
lested cxerciso of tho suffrngo and
as near an approach to an equality
of valuo in each ballot cast as is at
tainable." In almost direct opposition to
tho last clause of tho ubqvo quota
tion ho severely criticises tho plan
adopted by tho Michigan legisla
ture of electing presidential electors
by congressional and senatorial
districts. He appears to forget
that this method is far nearer to ob
taining "an equality of valuo in
each ballot cast" than the present
method of voting by states. In
1888 Harrison received 49.G.'t per
cent, of the vote cast in Michigan
and Cleveland 44.90 per cent. Of
tho fourteen electoral votes of tho
state less than half are conceded to
tho democrats, or claimed by them
for tho next election. Tho exhibi
tion of partisanship on this Bubject
is unworthy of tho president, and
is a blot on tho otherwise able mes
sage. Tho election of Crisp speaker of
tho house of representatives is not
thought to bo favorable to Cleve
land's nomination to the presiden
cy. Tho Oregonian continues to say
that "Hill is tho most dangerous
man in public life in tho United
States today." Of course, that paper
moans "tho most dangerous man to
tho republican party."
The Oregonian is greatly dis
turbed over tho "dangerous" char
acteristics of Gov. Hill, of New
York. The governor has made it
too lively for the corrupt Piatt
crowd to be loved by his iwditical
opponents of the Oregonian-Tribuno
Since tho election of Crisp for
Biaker, ho might bo a presidential
possibility were it not for one
thing; he was born in Sheffield,
England. Our constitution settles
that question for Crisp's admiring
friends by requiring every presi
dent to be a native born citizen.

The assessment roll of Lane
county for 1891 makes a handsomo
showing compared with tho prev

property w f 1.4:50,072 and taxable

labors of A sensor Mel'herson, the
possession of an abstract, and the
natural increase of property have
secured these results.
