Fair Treatment." The I'laixdiulke wishes it distinctly understood that it is uot responsible for the opinions of its correspondents. It Sires place to their communications oat of a spirit of fairness. Hie Plalnde w.ib has not and trill not make editorial corn meat cither for or against' religious or se cret societies, as to their merits or de merits, It sires the news of the move ments &3 they come to tiie euiface and leares the reader to draw his own infer ences. It has siren the replies of the! A. P. A'e. to caustic strictures of the lie view. This it hat done for "fair treat ment," the Review having refused to print replies to its sweeping condemna tions of that order. The Review boasts of "fair treatment" bat in their case hit peremptorily refused to be fair and print their replies. Attacks on Protestants. The Review is not satitrled with attack ing the several Protestant churches, bat zsaloaslr at the word of command from its master, turns its cowardly broadside on the members as well. It calls the recent revival meetings held in the Bap tist church a "scheme" and a ''dodge to arouse the interest of cbarch-going peo ple." Yet if any person shall haTe the temerity to resent these dastardly at tacks the A. P. A. will be accused of "stimng up strife." Are those system atic attacks first on the Protestant clergy and now on their congregations without some ulterior object? A great many in telligent people are seriously impressed with the idea that a large-sized Roman pote is !osuy iitrnng up t tie polecat in the Review office. Threat To Boycott Churches. This appears in the Review of the 12th : "Those churches whose pastors hare taken part in this A- P. A. crusade will be in no wise benefited by it because the business element, and substantial por tion of the community with few excep tions, take no stock in the craze." Yet this paper claims to In; "owned and managed exclusively by protestants.' Oh ! shade of JIartin Luther! The Capital Journal thinks "the offensive dictatorial tone assumed by the Puu.nde.ilek is uncalled for." Brother Hofer, ne, as well as yourself think this is a free country and we never lay aside our right to read tho utterances of our exchanges and say what we think of them ; just as you do of your exchanges. JI the language seems to warrant it we will say that black is made while, and vice versa. Mr. Hofer, as he says, hav ing "prided more that was favorable to Mr. Hermann than any other paper in this district," now "has a erfect right to stand with the friends of any candi date that 3Iarion county republicans see fit to present to the convention at Al bany." 01 course be has. No one dis putes it. But from the lone of the above cautiously worded declaration it is clearly discernable that be is no longer standing by Herman. That is all. He is now standing by Marion county's candidate, Possibly that one will be Hofer. We never questioned Mr. Hofer's right to stand-by Hofer. lue expenditures o! the government were in excess of income from 1S5S till 1665. After that till 1S91 the revenue was in excess of expenditures. In IS91 the expense of the government was fc,S03,2G0 more than the revenue. auu in is j j iue expense oi toe govern ment was ft2,S05 ,223 over revenue. Thus it will be seen that since the close of the war, 1S65, under republican man agement the government has been pros perous. But now since the repeal of the JfcKinley act and the enactment of the Wilson bill the goyernment has been running behind, as wsll as the people. Why is it so? The answer is apparent. We need protection. "Marion County has received no such favors of Mr. Hermann as other counties have," says the Capital Journal. That accounts for the Journal going back on Hermann. A long time getting your eyes open, Mr. Hofer. But better late than never. Trump your partner's ace and get the lead and swing for jack, is fair gambling. The editor of the I'lai.nuealeb docs not assume to be the Warwick of this Congressionial district. We only want to share that honor with Hofer of the Capital Journal. It is loo hip a load for Hofer to pack alone. WASHINGTON LETTER. I Front our own correspondent. PAKT 11. Whether or not it is known in Oregon, it is well known in Washington about the national capitol, that Oregen fares better in proportion to her population than any state in the union. She fares far better than the great state of Califor nia, with her seven representatives and two senators. She is "out of sight," compared with the state of Washington, or any other Etate west of (be Missouri river. This is not mere idle statement. The figures prove it. It cauuot be suc cessfully refuted, it cannot be success fully denied, aud yet, iu face of this fact generally aoknowledged iu Washington, about tho national capitol, I understand some of the opposing papers have the boundless temerity to ask. "What has the delegation done for Oregon?" There is not a senator or representative in congress, republican or democrat, who cannot testify to the "pernicious activ ity" of the Oregon delegation oven if the figures did not show it. "What has the delegation done for Oregon?', Theso editors are like the glutton, not satisfied with more than enough, but continually crying out, "more, more." They do not stop long enough to get their bteath and be grateful. It cannot be, however, that these men are as ignorant as they appear. It is more plausible that they are concvaling their own personal, selfish cuds, under the cloak of seeming ignorance. There are sotneVho would sell their mothers for sake of gain, to say nothing of mothers-in-law. It is therefore barely possible that there are men who would sell the interests of Oregon to terve their own private purposes. In the consideration of this question, it must be remembered that there is an important factor contributing to the value of a congressman, aside from ex perience, and knowledge of the ins and outs, the windings and the turns. It is the committee aniwintruents which are determined altogether by length of ser vice, and it is in the committees that nine-tentlis of all the work of congress is done; it is in the committees that all great questions arc settled. Some of the most valuable men in congress are never beard on the floor, the general public does not know of their existence; their work is done in the committees where they occupy leading places. When a new man comes here, no matter how able or brilliant, no matter bow he can delight the people with his happy illus trations and rounded periods ; no matte what hne analytical powers tie may bring to bear in the consideration of any great question, he mm! go to the foot of the list. A first term member of the bouse is never appointed on a leading committee; it is seldom that a second term member is. It is possible occasion ally for a first-termer to make a great noise on the floor of the bouse and ap pear to the world to be doing a great deal, but he does not really accomplish anything. He must serve his appren ticesbip and abide his time. In his sec ond term, if be is fortunate, he gets on fairly good committee and is put pretty well up on the list. This is of itself im portant for the nearer be is to the top of the list on the committee, the greater is his power to accomplish anything. It is not, however, until bis third term that the member of the house be sins to reach bis highest possibilities of usefulness If a member of the dominant party he is sure of a good chairmanship; he has ranking place on one or more other com mittees, and bis voice is listened to with attention and respect in the party coun cits. What is true of the boute is equally true of the senate. Mucb depends upon seniority; the new senator must take bis place in the line. Senator McBride was more than usually fortunate in his com rallies assignments because Senator Mitchell had charge of the re organira tion of the committeea and therefore could do prelty much as he liked for his colleague, but this exception only proves the rule. It was in part. Senator Mitch oil's seniority of service that gave him this power and as there could be lonly one chairman of reorganization, he was the only member of the senate who could make an exception of his new col league. In the house Mr. Herman is a ranking member of the great committee on rivers and harbors. He is the only member on it from the Pacific coast. In consequence all the Pacific coast members most come to him for assistance and for tint assist- tance he is enabled to exact favors from them in return ; for everything in tho nature of things, has something of red procity in it, in the national capitol, as elsewhere. In addition to this he is ckairmau of the committee on arid lands. It is easy to fursee the result it the people of Oregon should sacrifice their interests by sending a new delegation to congress. They would not have a man on rivers and !harbors: that nlace would be filled by a California member, probably. They would not hsve a place on public land. They would have no chairmanship. The new men they would send, however brilliant, however learned, however energetic and indus trious would Jiave to go to the foot of the line. Oregon, like the 'dunce at school, would go the bottom of the list. It would bo years before ebe could recover from the elTects of her stupidity. The new member would have a transient glorj'i a fleeting and purely local fame at the expense of the state. Some higb-minded soulful editor I forget his name and bis paper recently suggested that the ability of a congress man to secure appropriations for his state was a very poor qualification for office. He should be moved by hicher purposes, by nobler impulses; his mind should riee above such petty things and soar to empyrean beightB. It is hard to comprehend these delicate beings who are always floating about in nebulii. I confess I do not know what this tran- scondeutalist is driving at. It la a. safo rule in life that tho man who is good to his family is a good citizen. Tho uiau who is conscientious iu looking out for tho interests of his stato is generally a good representative for tho whole coun try. If he tries to take uudue advan tage, to secure more than he is entillod to, there are plenty of gentlemen from other sections of the country to protest. Tho states represented by men who are too high-minded, too pure-soulcd to look out tor their inteiests, find them selves neglected iu thoso things which couccrn their vital well boiug. Tho truo patriot, tho highest tyjMi of representa tive, is not ho who is continually striv ing to extract sunbeams from cucumbers, but tho ouo who earnestly endeavors to promote tho welfare of that great and needy family his constituents. Amkiiiccs. The A. P. A. Leader. Wamiinutos, March H. Representa tive Linton, of Michigan, the A. P, A. leader in the house, received uoiuo days ago a letter from Captain Thomas Phc lan, of Kansas City, a well-known Irish agitator, challenging him to fight a duel at. Blandcnsburg, tho challengo being preceded by a long denunciation of IJn ton's courso in opposing tho church tchool appropriations and placing tho statue of Father Marquette in tho cap itol. Mr. Linton was asked today if he had made any reply to the challenge. Ho said: "Kyer since the house defeated the ap proprianou lor sectarian institutions iu the District ot Columbia bill, partly through my efforts, my mail has been loaded every day with great numbers of letters from anxious cranks, denouncing me violently, threatening diro vengeance and death in various forms. All of these letters I have thrown in the waste bas ket. There have been so many there w.is not. time to reau an, ana l paiu no attention to any of them. This lett irom rueian was one oi them and X sup pose went into the wasto basket with the others. I bad forgotten the letters, uor did I think who Pheun as until the latter's photograph and a sketch of his career was printed iu tho papers. Since publicity bas been given to it, I may conclude to mase some reply. ot so mucb to Phelan as to the fanatic spirit which he represents. Of course fighting duels is not in my line. That sort of performance is considered rather ridicu lous by Americans of this generation The threats which I have received from cranks have not alarmed me iu the least and I would have preferred that no pub licity be given to them. "I am not an enemy to the church but I am unalterably upposed to govern ment appropriations to assist sectarian work and to any tort of union of church and elite and shall continue to oppose tLem."
