MONDAY, FEB. 25, 1S95.
In potting our books for the year 1S94
tee find there area number of persons in
debted to u in small ammtnts which aggrt
gate several thousand dollars. Like al
most erery body ehe, ire are sadly in need
of money with which to pay our indebted
nets not for investment or (peculation.
Our creditor are in the same fir, and are
crowding us. Consequently ire arc com
pelled to urge vpon our friends the neces
sity of the payment of the small amount
due us. Therefore ice will at the earliest
possible moment render a statement oj
account, as appears from our boots Janu
ary I, 1S94, to erery person indebted to us.
here there are so many small accounts it
it next to impossible to leep all of them cor
rectly, hence when you receive a statement
and tninfc it it incorrect, even if you
hare paid it and we failed to aire gou
credit, don't "fly of the handle" and get
mad, but write kindly and tell us abont it
if you cap'! write kindly, write any way,
for ice want to hare our books correct. If
you can't pay the whole amount of your bill,
a portion of it witt be thankfully received,
and if it is not conrenient for you to pay
any of it, let us know that fact alto. We
would be pleased to hare erery person re
cti ring a statement of account to acknow
ledge its receipt at their earliest conven
It's good-byo Dolph and machine
The yonnR republicans of Oregon
are fairly in it
Simon's Portland-charter bill died
an ignominious death.
Joe Simon's grip on Oregon
politics is a thing of the past
Oregon's senator-elect is bnt 41
years of age, and will be one of the
yonngest men in the senate.
Even if the useless laws ami com
missions were not abolished, the
eighteenth session of the Oregon leg
islature is a thing of tbe past, and
for this we are duly thankfnl.
The senate committee on naval af
fairs Friday recommended, the con
struction of three battleships and 12
torpedo-boats, provided for in the
house bill. An amendment was also
agreed to leaving it optional with
thasecretary of the navy to use steel
tiietal or alloy in the construction of
the torpedo-boats. The law now
limits him to the use of steel.
The election of Geo. W. McBnde
to succeed Senator Dolph meets with
the hearty approval of the people of
Oregon. As secretary of state Sir.
McBride made many warm friends
throughout the stale, all of whom
are higly elated over his election to
the highest position within tbe gift
of the people. He is a native-born
Oregonian. and of him we are all
Mrs. Bonrka Cockran, wife of Con
gressman Cockran, died last week
in New York, from hemorrhages,
with which she was attacked Toes
day. Mrs. Cockran was 31 years of
age. She had been married 10 years
and up to two years ago was a leader
of society in Washington, but at that
time her health interfeted with her
social duties and she was taken by
her husband to the Adirondacks, and
also to Europe.
Senator Chandler, of New Hamp
shire, is the latest far-Eastern pub
lic man to announce bis belief that
bimetalism must be re-established
and the gold-standard abandoned.
He Bpeaks conservatively, of course,
being a New England man. Yet his
expressions show his drift toward bi
metalism, and, if h6 is sincere, that
he only waits a favorable opportun
ity, and one when tbe republicans
are in power, to come out squarely
for bimetalism. And it is to be re
marked, also, that he did not find it
necessary to make apology as
straight and consistent republican.
The fact is indisputable that gold
is steadily appreciating in value.
The causes for this are many. In
the first place tbe ratio of the pro
duction of gold to the growth of the
commercial needs of the world has
been kept up. This, with special
legislation to make it the only basis
of value, and tbe boarding of the
metal by tbe military nations of
Europe, and tbe constantly increas
ing use of it in the arts and for or
namentation, ha? brought this in
crease m value. Silver on the con
trary, statistics show, has kept paco
very closely in its production with
the commercial growth of the world,
and today an ounce of silver will buy
as much wheat or iron as it did five
or eight years ago. Its relative
value to any of the productions of
the farm or factory have not changed
at all. It is gold that has changed
and has risen in value. Exchange.
WHICH REMEDY I
, It should be apparent to the veriest
tyro in statesmanship that when hun
dreds of millions are rushing out of
concealment to buy 4 per cent bonds
at nearly 120, and tho government
and the masses of the people as well
are in dire financial distress some
thing is radically wrong with our
financial system. It should bo
equally apparent, also, that tbe rem
edy cannot bo found in going deeper
and deeper in debt to got gold, merely
to keep paying gold out again to tho
These two facts nro concodod by
nearly all persons. But as to what
tho remedy should Le thoro is a wido
difference of opinion. It is claimed
by tho siugUt-sttiudard men that wo
must got riil of our legal tender
notes, thus incurring n heavy gold
debt and largely contracting our cur
rency at tho samo time. This would
make thia country tho financial vas
sal of our foreign creditors, nud that
for a very long poriod of years, if uot
perpetually. With tho currency still
more contracted and a filial adoption
of the gold standard, and tho bulk of
gold in the hands or at tho control of
a comparatively few men, labor and
products could bopo for no iucrcaso
in values; commerco wonld continue
to be handicapped, and industry par
alyzod. On the other hand, if our money of
final redemption is doubled, in ac
cordance with the constitution and
the laws, we at at once release our
selves from English bondage, bo in
dependent of the banks, increase, by
a largo percentage tho valuo of all
property and of labor; and can retire
our treasury notes at our loasnro and
whenovor it is best to do so. h'reo
coinage of silver aud lha adoption by
the government of tho policy of pay
ing our obligations in silver or gold,
would accomplish h!1 this.
Hence, between these two remedies
there is as much difference as be
tween health and disease, happiness
and misery, prcspentj and adversity.
Which will we choose? Sun.
LAND COnniSSIONER'S REPORT.
Information Gleaned From the Blen
The biennial report of the state board
of land commissioners has bean pub
lished. It contains 1S3 pages principally
of statistical matters and sets forth all
sales of land made within the time it
covers January 1, 1S93, to December 3,
1SSH, and designates tbe character of tbe
same, giving names of all (lersons having
moneyed transactions vritti tho board,
and shows tbe present condition of the
various trust funds, and amount of inter
est bearing paper in each and the total
amount of applications for loans that has
been approved, and of mortgages that
have been discharged.
The board states that collections of
interest on both mortgage and land notes
have been far from satisfactory; espec-
ially during the last year covered by tbe
report but the board has refrained from
forcing collections by foreclosure, of
mortgages except in cases where the in
terests of tbe estate appeared to demand
them. Aside from this 'the trust funds
are in good condition, and chows a grati
f jing increase.
Mr. George W. Davis, clerk of the
board, in bis report for the two years to
December 31st, 1KH, says:

that he could for the unfortunate woman,
but she was sinking so rapidly when ho
came that little could ba done, and she
died about 8 o'clock Sunday morning.
Dr. Ozias examined the body and pro
nounced her dead and left for Koseburg.
I am informed that Monday evening the
family was not satisfied, as her face
flushed, so they sent for Dr. Ozias again,
who stayed all night and informed tho

Easter will occur this year on April
14th. This is tbe latest day on which
this festival has occurred for many years.
The date fixed on the first Sunday after
tbe full moon, occurring upon and after
March 21st, and may happen as early as
March 22d or as late as April 25tb,
though it very rarely approaches thc3o
extremes. In 1894 Easter occurred on

loaded with fuel, weighs S1.0W lbs. Tho

Considerably in Debt
Tbe committee which has been investi
gating the records cf Baker county havo
reached the conclusion that the county
is $270,000 in debt, although tlicy havo
not finished their investigations, and the
exact amount may exceed that sum.
During all these years while the debt
was accumulating, tho "books bavo been
open so that people could go and sco for
themselves," but the people didn't go,
and it is now a good deal like locking tho
stable door after the horse is gono.
The Continental insuranco Company
