The Register has made a wonder
ful discovery of what the tariff tax
of $16,000,000 annually for tin haB
accomplished. It says:
"The Guard stated a few days
ago that Messrs. Wilkins and
Abrams had secured a few sheets of
American made tin plate and
placed it in McClung's snow win
dow for political purjwses. The
facts are that the tin in question
was sent to the Eugene Canning &
Tacking Company, and was Hent as
samples without any regard to the
campaign. It might also be of in
terest to the Guard to know that
in May last year the cannery paid
for their tin IC.GO per box 011 board
ship at San Francisco, or $7.87 laid
down in Eugene. This was for im
ported tin. This year they can
purchase the samo grade of tin,
American make, from Hazen & Co.,
of Indiana, for $0.70 per box laid
down in Eugene. When they
mado the purchase last year foreign
tin was quoted at $6.75 per box on 1
board shin at San Francisco, or 5
centt per box more than American
tin now costs laid in hugene
That is what the tarilfis doing for
us in the tin business."
We do not supjxwe the Register
would seek to mislead its reuders
for mrtisan purposes on the tariff
question as it affects tin, but attrib
ute tho closing statement to ignor
ance, the price ol tin, like that 01
all other products, fluctuates in the
markets of the world, tarill or no
tariff. Tho difference in price be
tween this year and last can no
more be attributed to American
manufacture of tin, than the low
price of wheat throughout the
world Is caused by Oregon growing
a fair crop.
Tho report of the government
agent for the fiscal yea ended June
last shows tho output ot tin and
terne plates of this country that
year was 13,240.830 pounds. This
was less than i per cent ol the
amount consumed in the Bame per
iod. Of this amount less than one-
Quarter was tin plate, tho rest be
ing terne plate, which is coated with
lead and tin and used for roofing
Duruoses only. This report comes
from an officer appointed by Harri
son, und his administration has
been notorious for twisting and per
verting statistics, wherever iiossi
ble, to further partisan ends, and
must be the most favorable
showing possible. Thus only
one-half of 1 per cent of the
tin UBed in this country for can
ning, domestic purposes, and all
oilier uses, except roohng, is pro'
duced in this country, ihe man
who believes, or knowing seeks to
make others believe that this pro
duction affects tho markets of the
world, or tho United States
in the least particular, tie
serves to have a guardian appoint
ed to watch over him.
Even this small amount reported
by the government is largely of for
eign manufacture. According to
cuBtom house reports, during the
last quarter of the fiscal year the
importations of black plate, the
steel sheets on which tho tin is laid,
were over 4,000,000 pounds. The
tin ingots aro imported, the greater
tiart of the black plates are evident
y imported, Welsh labor is import
ed, and the only part of the work
dono in this country is that of dip
ping. For this the peoplearemade
to pay a tariff tax of $16,000,000
annually on an article that is one
of the necessaries of life, used in
the humblest cottage in the land.
Tariff for protection is a fraud
and robbery of the people, and
tho tin plate tax thoroughly dem
onstrates that fact.
At a recent meeting of the Brit
ish Medical Association a proposi
tion was discussed to change the
law of England bo as to make in
sanity a ground for divorce. In
most of the states of the American
Union tho courts have the power to
annul a marriage upon proof that
at the time of the ceremony either
of the parties was insane, and,
therefore, unable intelligently to
make a contract. As to insanity
occurring after marriage, Arkansas
grants divorce by reason of insanity
after marriage. In our own state
insanity that has existed for thir
teen years after marriage and if
deemed incurable is legal ground
for divorce. In 1S81 a statute was
enacted in Wisconsin permitting
divorce on account of insanity
where such insanity was believed
to be incurable, but this law re
mained in force only a yer. In
the debate on this question before
the British Medical Association
there was a general agreement on
the part of the thirty physicians
present to tho effect that if insanity
was to be accepted as a plea for di
vorce at all, it Bhould only be in
cases which were deemed by experts
to bo absolutely incurable; and
there was also a strong sentiment
in fa vor of requiring that the in
sanity Bhould have existed for a
considerable period, a minimum of
seven years being suggested by
some of the speakers and ten years

merce in an article on tho stability
of ships, says: "We trust that the
time is not far distant when water
ballast will be the only system of
ballasting in iron ships, and the
costly old-fashioned rubbish ballast
consigned to oblivion." At first
glance many interested persons will
not second this view, says the Mar

T. F. Osborn, the president of the
Portland chamber of commerce,
and a life-long republican, is to ad

The big monopoly organ of Port
land asserts that "no other cause
for the decline of silver need be
sought than the decrease in cost of
production." Xo one expects the
Oregonian to tell the truth about
silver. It cannot be controverted
that the comparative value of silver
under free coinage from 1851 to
1S73 was greater than that of gold,
not excepting a single year. In
IS. J the infamous Sherman act
was passed demonetizing silver,
and it immediately dropped a con
siderable per cent below gold, and
has since continued to decline.
The coined silver that is in circu
lation passes equally with gold,
and whether silver cosU the mine
owner fifty cents or one hundred
cents to produce an ounce, makes
no difference when the government
I stamp is placed upon it
