Now if my memory is not gone
astray I think we told the Siamese
twin's, that is the deino-rcpiiblican
party, that the financial question of
more importance to the masses than
the tariff, and we believe that when
the people have to go dow n in their
pocKets mi uitMi laws ;inu pay on
their mortgages they will see where
the finance question comes in.
.now i see no w ay mji oi our pres

to put every idle man to work, and
wtrk them on our roads, or any

Now Mr. Asparagus, or whoever
you are, I will give ou an illustra
tiou of the tariff as seen by my eyes
today: My wile owns u sheep
ranch, and I have a line dog. I
have to have meat for my dog and
we will call that big bone of meat
the tariff bone. My wile takes it
into her head lo raise a litter of
cats, She says to me one morning,
'Charley, my cats are ypung, they
must be protected. We will give
them a part of the dog's meat whie
they are young," and from that day
to this Unit family has been gnaw
ing at that poor old dog's bone lui
til they have got it all consumed,
and the consequence is that the
poor old dog has got so thin anil
starved that he can hardly go after
sheep. So one morning I told him
there would be a change of cooks,
ami I thought that he would fare
better at night, So when night
came and he came home tired and
worn out, he beheld a big bone in
his dish, How he wagged his tail
and smiled with the thought of a
good supper. He went up to ut
bone and snielled of it. Nothing
there, went back with tears in his
eyes; so hungry ; went up again
and licked it, nothing there; set
down in dispair; went again, there
must be some gristle there; nary n
gristle, and the poor dog lay down
to die. My wife came out and see
ing the situation and says: "I
have protected him near'y to death
through feeding my cats, give him
some tlun soup which may help

have run, but it was too late. They
all came in and took posessioti of
his house. Mr. Watkins, though
completely surpiised, soon re
covered himself. The house was
stripped of all unnecessary' furniture
and soon music and dancing was
heard. At eleven o'clock a de

every one enjoyed very much.

A San Francisco dispatch of the,
nth says: Sheriff McDade was,
served with notice yesterday by
Page & Kells, representing the Ore,
gon Pacific Railroad Company and
the Willamette Valley Railroad
Company, to the effect that the
company would hold him responsi-.
ble for the detention of the steamer
Willamette Valley, The steamet
was attached by the sheriff about a
mouth ago for $14,000, on proceed-,
ings being instituted in the superior
court by W. O, Swiunerton, who,
held a number of assigned claims,
Keepers were placed in charge ol
thp stenmer and she has been de
tained in port ever since. Now.
comes the railroad company with
notice to nuke the sheriff responsi
ble for all resulting damages. The
notices states that the railroad
company, in consideration of the,
payment of the bonded indebtedness
of the road, executed to the Far:
niers' Loan & Trust Company a,
mortgage for$ 15, 000,000. The sher-t
iff was served with a certified copy
of this mortgage, together with a
notification that a receiver named
Charles Clark had been appointed.
The receiver was appointed before
the attachment proceedings were
brought in this city. Sheriff Mcr
Dade does npt like his position very
well, but under the law he had no
other course to pursue, as if he had
refused to have made the original
attachment of Swiunerton, he would
have been responsible for $14,000,
by allowing the steamer to depart.
1 here was nothing left for him to
do but to detain the steamer. The
question to be decided is whether
the admiralty laws in the United
States courts take precedence over
state law, and the sheriff said yes
terday he desired the courts to set
tle the question as quickly as possi
