Protection's chief advantage is in
keeping at the highest possible rate,
Uie tragea of workmen anl of continoos
employment. TJie next thing of vital
interest is keeping our money at home,
or the largest possible amount of it.
Open oar porta to foreign manufactures
and they trill crowd out domestic man
ufactures by flooding our country with
product of cheap labor, and a large vol
ume of our money will go to pay for
them, ami never return. Tint has Iven
the cause of our gold shipments to
Kn gland lately, causing distrust and
hard times now upon us. In view of
this fact all of the foreign countries are
now rejoicing in the reduction of the
United States' tariff, as it gives them a
better market in this country than they
had under the McKinley tariff. They
are certainly gainers by the redaction.
What is their gain mut Lc oer loss.
That is morally certain.
By fostering oar own manufacturing
industries we create a larger concerning
class, thus making a home market for
the raw materials which enter into thwre
fabrics and for iA rodcts. This
brings the manufacturer and consumer
doser together and saves cost of trans
portation. But the free trader says:
Foreigners will not buy of us unles we
bay of them. There is no argument in
that. Other countries will hay of us
what they want whether our tariff le

purchase. If our manufactures can
have the largest jossiWe volume of
ltusiness, they will manufacture all
our own people want ami hav5 a large
surplus and will then buy, the only way
to prosper, and when manufactures are
prosperous they will pay better wages
to their employes.
The employes getting good W3gea mill
consume more of all the commodities
which make life pleasant and enjoyable.
"But'saya our free trade friend, "we
can compete with the world in manu
factures." Yes, of courre we can, by
patting the laboring class down to
Earopcan wages and manner cf living.
The wase earners of tho United States
for the last thirty jtarf", have Heed like
the lords of old. They 1 -ve been better
housed, better clad, better fed and better
educated and enjyed more luxuries of
ltfe than the laboring classes of Europe,
hecaose they got better wages under our
protective system, with 'almost constant
. One more word on "tariff is a tax and
the consumer pays it." This we admit
only in part. If the importer docs not
pay the tariff, in part, at least, why do
they not import as largely under high as
under a low tariff? It is a fact they do
not. But if the consumer pays the tariff,
what difference can it be to the importer
whether the tariff be high or low? Such
logic is like a ecive; it won't hold water.
Then again it is a fact that in a large
numLer of dutiable articles the domestic
manufacturer sells his producU of that
clas3 for less than tho duty on them.
How will free trader explain that?
Daring tho summer of 1S3 1 tho noted
bacteriologists of Europe, Koch of Ger
many, Pasteur of France, Evrart of Scot
land and Carpenter of England, made ex
periments on the vitality of tho germ
which causes splenic fever in animate.
The facts thus deduced prove that earth
worms may brine up the germ3 from
places where such animals have been
buried after a lao of 20 years, and that
the dried and pulverized blood of such
diseased animals will produce the
disease after 50 yearf.

Brown Again Sentenced.
At 1 o'ekek today, in the circuit court,
Judge Follerton pronounced, for the
second time, the death sentence of Sam
uel u. Brown, as follows:
"On the 5th day of December. 1MM
you were put on trial in this court on an
tndtctment charging you with murder in
the tilling of Alfred Kincaid in August,
1S5M, in this county. Several davs werr
consumed in the trial of the cause. You
were defended by skillful and able coan
sel. The jury returned a verdict to the
effect that you of your deliberate and
premeditated malice did kill and
murder the eaid Alfred Kincaid, at the
time and in the manner set out in the in
dictment. On the 23d dav of December
IKH, yoojvere sentenced by this court to
be executed on the IStli day of February
1S&5. An appeal was taken lo the su
preme court of the state from the judg
mcnt of conviction. After a careful con
eideration of all the questions involved
in the bill of exceptions the supreme
court has found that you had a fair and
impartial trial and that there was no
error in the record of this court In the
trial of said cause, and the mandate of
the Eapreme court affirming the verdict
of the jury and the judgment of this court
IM been tiled with the clerk of the court.
After the lapse of a year you again
stand before the court for sentence. It
would serve no good purpose to recall or
repeat at this time the evidence upon
which yoa were convicted. Suffice to
say that you are brought to the awful
death, which awaits you at tho hands of
the law, by your own unbridled passions.
it is a sad and terrible fate for any man,
and much more sad and terrible for a
man who is yet in the yigor and bloom
of youth. But the law must be vindi
cated and tho lesson which is convoyed
by tho punishment meted out to you
may have a salutary effect open others.
it is ordered and adjudced that vou be
taken hence to the jil of this county and
there kept confined until Friday, the 31st
day of January, 1S0G, and on said day
oeiweeti the hours of seven and eiifht
o'clock in tho morning, be taken by the
sheriff of Douglas county to some place
within the jail yard of said county by the
said sheriff selected, and there hanged by
the neck until you are dead."
The Dardanelles, of which we read
much these days, are four castles
forts ' n opposite shores of tin?
- I ww,-
win ', jjms the sea of Marmora with
the waters of ihe Aegean sea, but the
name by association, is also given to
channel on which the fort stands. For
many years the Turkish government
maintained that no foreign vessel of
war should at any time be allowed to
pass the Dardanelles fort. This re
striction was recognized by Great
Britain and France, in consequence of
which in 1S32-53 the British fleets were
not permitted to enter the straits.
This claim on the part of Turkey was
fully recognized by all the great pow
ers of Europe in 1S41 and was reaffirmed
in the treaty of Paris in 1S5G, two years
later, however, in November, 1S58, the
United State's frigate, Wabash, passed
the Dardanelles, and anchored at Con
stantinople, the commanding officers
claiming that the United States, not
being a party to the treaty of Paris, was
not bound by its stipulations. Although
no positive acknowledgment was made
as to the correctness of this position,
the vessel was received in a friendly
manner by the Turkish government.
The two castles at the entrance of the
strait from the side of tho -Egean sea
were built by Mohammed in in 1059.
The Difference in Climate.
City Marslial Cannon has just re
ceived a letter- from C. A. Sprandel,
formerly of Roseburg but now a resident
of Minnesota. He says potatoes are 7
cents a bushel, oats 12U cents, and hay
three and four dollars a ton. About
this time the mercury is 10 degrees be
low -zero, while here in Oregon the
weather is mild and pleasant and grass
green as in spring. Could those Min
nesotaus bo transplanted today from
that frigid region to our beautiful city
they would think they had reached par
adise. After fifty years' residence in
Oregon, we can say wo have never been
confined to the house with sickness, ex
cept with a spoil of the la grippe.
Neither liave we known a crop to fail
nor a decrease in the production of the
soil during tliat period of time. The
soil continues as fertile as ever, and
that without tho use of fertilizers. The
gentle rain from heawu never fails us,
and while some may grumble at au ex
cess of water fall, yet it is one of the
great means of keeping up the fertilit y
of oar soil. We invite the people of the
East to come oat and test the health
fulness of our climate and be convinced.
