TION. On national issues, as declared ly the
M. Louis plHitorm, au lioi)C6t mail Ciu
not be a national republican without
subscribing to golJ mono uielalism, re
tirement ol greenbacks, and withdrawal
of silver and coin certificates. m
Tbe above is a (air sample of what can
be found in tbe colutuus of (lie pop v
cratic press aluiott every Jay. The re
publican policy is not, ami never will I
for gold uono-tnetalism, while it is, and
always will he, for tbe maintenance of
tbe gold standard. There can be but
one stanJard of value uo more tban tbere
can be two or more standards of meas
urement. T!ic policy of tbe republican
party is lo limit tbe coinage of silver,
not withdraw it, in order that tbe parity
may be maintained. Tbere bas never
been a silver dollar retired from circuU'
lion by tbe government aud no measure
looking to that end bas ever been pro
posed or even suggested ; and no one
but an idiot would suggest Die relire
mentof silver. Silver cuius are ueces
sary in tbe traosacticn of tbo country's
business, and (he country's silver cur
reuoy is being increased by the coinage
of many millions a year. The gold
standard is one thing and gold mono
uietalism is something else, but tbe av
erage silve'looa either cannot or will
not observe tbe difJetence. He is a
knave or a fool. Every eoIJ standard
country maintains in circulation a large
amount of silver, but no .free coinage
country maintains in circulation any
gold whatever. Free coinage means sil
ver mono-metalieoi ; tbe gold standard
means tbe circulation of both gold and
silver, interchangeable dollar for dollar.
It was stated in the Uregonian the
otber day that (be Mitchell republicanb
of Multnomah county intended to bold
separate primaries next spring, hold a
convention of their own and send dele
gates to the state and district conven
tions. In that eveut it is just possible
both delegations from that county w ill
be excluded from participation in tbe
councils of the convention. Tbere will
be uo such mistake made again ae the
admission of divided delegations. 1'er
baps tbe rumor is cot tiue. If it is, it
is a confession of weakness on tbe part
of tbe Mitchell republicans, an an
nouncement that tbey are afraid to take
their chances at the primaries with their
opponents. The primaries and tbe con
ventions are the places where tbe party
differences should be passed upon aud
let tbe unsuccessful ones bite their lips
and roll up their Bleeves for party suc
cess, hoping that their side may win
next time; and if it is right, it will.
Wrong cannot always succeed. The
people may be fooled for a time, but
when they see tbe right, that in the
course tbey will pursue.
A reduction in the taritT on coal by (he
Wilson bill was followed by a reduction
in wages amounting to nearly as much
per ton as tbe reduction c( the duty.
That act cut down tbe coal tariff (i'i cents
per ton, which is a little more than
l'resident Itatchford claims as having
taken place in in the reduction of
wages. If 3-3 cents reduction in taritl
cuts down wages 23 or 'M cents per ton,
would the removal of the entire duty, as
urged by Mr. Bryau in bit- fciieech iu
cougre6Bof June 13, lyjl, le.ue the
miners any employment at all ?
There is no such thing as a free Biher
republican auy more. Tut your liuyer
UKn one that has hitherto been mas
querading uuder that uaiue and yuu will
find a mau who supported I'.ryau luul
year, and is now devising ujubuh Iu de
feat the republican nominees next year.
Tbe "republicans" who held to that idea
bare dropped it, the others are popu
list! and the parly must expect to get
long without them till tbey have been
the error of their way.
Tbere bas been no material change in
tbe election returns of last Meek. Tbe
result is ubstaBtially as published iu
tbe I'tAiKLitALKS's special dispatch of
last Thursday. In Ohio tbo republicans
Lave majority of five iu the legislature)
and bare elected the entire tUto ticket.
Senator Hanna will succeed himself.
Gorman if defeated in Maryland and
will be succeeded by a republican.
Tbe gold reserve continues to climb
up. Krldeotly confidence in tbe ability
and williognese of the government

Yes, and theie are one thousand farm
ers in Jackson county good, hottest,
hard working men who, i( tbey were
ussesmnl according to the carniugs ol,
their farms, would pay leM than one
tilth orevcu one-tenth of tbe taxes thev
now pay. And the same is true ol a
majority id our tmaiiiera men. The
system of taxation at prru nt is based
Hon valuation of property, and not up
on the earning capacity ! property.
When property is assessed at lers than
one-th'rd of Hhat it is actually bonded
for in the mortgage market, no one can
truthfully assert that it is too high.
And this is actually true of the I".
railroad assessment in Jackson com.ty.
According to the stock market
report of the Oregooian tbere was an in
crease during tbe month of August el
over 45o,000 in tbe l et earnings of the
S. 1'. company over otber months.
But there are some iiotttlious the people
of Jackeon county have asked the hon
orable railroad commissioner, an. I we
thought may be I'jl. IMdv would answer
them iu Ins newspaper. Why
it anyhow, tbi Medfurd ha to pay
I. bo per bundled pounds on height
from San Francisco, while Albany, over
J',0 miles farther away, gets the same
class of freight for 7.' cents per hundred ?
Even Kosehnrg gets the same cUsh ef
freight from the same inl for $1 15
per hundred. Why are the
people of the Kogne tivrr couutiy dis
criminated against in freights aud pas
senger fares, in accommodations ubd
trivial courtesies'.' Me.lfonl Moiuor
Mitiir. This is a mailer of public concern and
llie oiiestious propounded are very
proper, ll might bo stated try way of
pareuthesis, that no matter what a pub
lic otlicial may do in tbe line of hi
duly, there are always some narrow men
who will attribute mercenary motives lo
that otlicial. Iu speaking of (he ijues-
tio'i of taxation before, it bas been stat
cd in these columns that railroad prop
erty is a species of property peculiar to
itself. It cannot be compared to a farm
or a stock of goods for assessment pur
poses. An idle lot is valuable, so is an
idle farm, because it may be utilized aod
the idleness is au election of the owter
A stock of perishable goods must le sold
or become a dead loss on the bauds of
the merchant. A railroad must be oper
ated or it w ill decav. Its rails will rust
and its bridges rot. It must le oper
ated at a profit or its owners will bto
tbe operation. If a mercbaut is com
pelled to pay a heavy liceuse to do busi
ness iu a city, he must increase his mar
gin of profit on his goods to meet
the iucieased expense or go out of
bueicess. If a railroad is taxed at a rale
lliititcaiuiulp.lv, it must increase lis
charges or reduce tbe expense of opera
ti.n by cntliiig duwu tl,e was of its
employes or reducing its equipment aud
curtailing its service, or stop, "1 litre

As to the reiort that there waa an in
crease during tbe mouth of August of
over $13o,M) iu tbe net earuiog of the
S. P., that applies to the entire system.
The earuiogs of the lines iu Oregon
for the two years ending June uOth last,
averaged fli'S.UOO per raontb, acd tbe
c' earnings to $2b,"bti per month, exclu
sive of taxes. It may be that the editor
of the Miner knew that the increase
above referred to included the system, but
he didn't so inform his readers. 1 he net
earnings of the Oregon lines fur a year
does not aroonnt (o that sum. There is
an increase in buain'.si so far this year,
but to what extent bas not yet been as
certained. Another thing ll.-t some people ap
parently will n-'t learn is that tbe Ore
gon commissioners have no control over
interstate rates. That is a matter for
the interstate commission, aud if the
aggrieved shippers w ill take their case
tbere it ill he beard and determined.
The local com mission deals w ith local
rates. All rales on freight coming into
tbe slate from California are beyond its
control, but it does supervise rates from
Portland south. Not long tinte Med
ford paid fl.17, U.oH, f I.-- and tl.10 per
hundred on 1st, I'd, 3d and Kb class

Some people cannot distinguish the
difference between the words "gold
standard" aud gold uionomclalism.
Tbey seem to thiuk that tbe committing
of the republicans lo tiie gold staudard
was a declaration in favor of excluding
silver and paper from tbe currency. It
seems foolish to deny such a pieposter
ous contention, but so long as it is made
and believed by persons whi allow
others todo their thiukiug for them,
just so long will it lo necessary lo say
that the gold standard simply means
that there shall be but one standard of
value; that the poor man's money, geu
