THOSE DREADFUL DOQS.
Tho reports of the department of ag
riculture aro intended to be entirely se
riouraud specially instructive; hence
when wo detect in them an occasional
touch or humor and a thinly veiled ef
fort to.mislead wo aro and have a right
to bo surprised. An example of a de
parture from the established rule of se
riousness and public onlightmcntisBeen
in connection with a recent report show
ing the great fall'mg-off in the value of
sheep in this country, and an explan
atory footnote setting forth the cause.
The value placed upon sheep for the
past six years is as follows : For 1SS0,
90,W0.369: 1SH), $100,659, id; 1S91,
10S,S97,497; 1892, $116,151,290; 1S93,
$123,909,264; 1S94, $S9,1S0,110.
Tho footnote refers to the tremendous
drop in values shown by the estimate
ofl893,and reads: "Sheep have suf
fered rather an abrupt declino in num
bers, price, and, of course, in aggregate
value, sinco January, 1893. Tho rav
ages of dogs are generally refcred to
by correspondents as one of tho checks
upon the i rogress of this valuable in
dustry." o other cause of this tre
mendous decline in this "valuable in
dustry" is civen thence wo are forced
to conclude that the department of ag
riculture places the great weight of re
sponsibility in the premises upon those
dreadful dogs. "What a multitude of
these voracious creatures there must
be in the sheepraising sections, and how
quicilv they must have sprung into ex
istence to make a shrinkage in valuta
in this fiercely assailed industry of $35,
723.154 in asincle learl Wuata mon
strous appetito for runttou to have been
developed so quickly 1 Sheepowuers
and herders must have been paralyzed
by the Eaddennes and ferocity of the
onslaught, as a still further decline of the
sheen industry for 1S95 shows that the
dogs feasted throughout the year on mot
ton whh daily increasing appetite.
This arraignment of dogs, with the
suggestions of their bloodtbireiiness,
voracity and great numbers, is apjdling.
At the rate at which their devastations
are now going on, mutton will soon be
ecirce. Their insatiable appetites most,
of coarse, be appeased; what valuable
domestic animal will they next set cpon?
Is it not hib time for the honorable sec
retary of agriculture to sound a note of
warning to the legislatures of Pennsyl
vania, Ohio and other states in which .
dogs have developed the keenest apatite
for mutton, urging th3 passage of a law I
providing a bounty for dog scalps! Such ;
a warning would serve to enlighten the
prejudiced partisans of thwe stales, who
have all along attributed the tremendous
decline in the sheep industry to the
clause in the Wilson tariff law which
puts wool on the free list. It is high
time the public intelligence was brought
face to face with the fact that the pred
atory dog, and not the democratic tatifi",
is the actual sheepkiller. Oregonian.
HEAR ALL SIDES, THEN DECIDE.
In Saturday's Puuxdealee we gave
place, at solicitation of interested par
ties, to a declaration of the principles of
the A. I. A., jnst as we did two years
ago to a declaration of the principles of
the populist party. The Puu.vduixb
is republican, "dyed in the wool," be
lieving that the principles of the partj
which stood the shocks of war, and the
malignity of democracy ever since, is
based upon principles that are destined
to repos; firm and unshaken, coexistent
with the American Union, and that the
Stars and Stripes will float over it in
triumph when all opposition has been
relegated to oblivion . "We are not afraid
of investigation. Our motto is, Hear all
sides, then decide. It is error that
shuns investigation. Jefferson said :
"Any error of opinion may safely be tol
erated when reason is left free to com
We gave place to the A. P. A. declar
ation of principles so that our readers
might know what they are, by author
ity of the A. P. A's themselves. If any
democrat, republican, prohibitionists or
even a mugwump Clevelandite, can
show their falacy in a candid and logical
manner, the columns of the Plalvdealtk
art at his service. The Plaisdealxk does
not fear error when submitted to the
light of reason, neither does it fear the
A. P. A., nor even the Review or its
The Review calls the A. P. A. column
in the Plaindealek "nonsensical rot."
We fancy the democrats (many of whom
are A. P. A's) who shall read that mor
sel of information in the Review will
feel highly edified by this exegesis of
their declaration of principles, and,
doubtless will rush to the Review office
for copies of Monday's issue, pat the
editor on the back and say, "We thank
thee, Charles, for those words, 'non
sensical rot.' "
From dispatches from Soulh Africa it
appears the Boers have got tho best of
the English under Dr. Jamieeon, and
driven them back with considerable loss
to hia forces. The latest from Cuba
6hows that the insurgents still maintain
their ground against the Spanish. Gen
erals Gomez and Maceo are concentrat
ing their forces for an advance upon Ha
vana. The Cubans are determined, and
recent checks uon tho Spanish have
emboldened the Cubans and they aro
rising almost emua a to drive the invad
ers from Cuba.
Tho ratio of repreeentation in the
house of reprecentatives in congress is
