sick and likely to die soon. His

Three billions is a big sum of
money, and yet David could not
ride on a railroad, send a tele

what good did it do him?
The town of Argentine, Kan

It must be a pleasant thing
to be an Indian doctor. Lately
two Indians, medicine men, as
thev are called, have been killed
because they undertook to cure
the sick and failed, on the Sim-
coe reservation. That invests
the profession with a fatality
that few white doctors would be
-willinw to chance. It is singu
lar that they have any doctors
who will make medicine lor

The question as to the author
ity of the Secretary of the Treas
ury to use the surplus in the
purchase of bonds has at length
been disposed of. The House
has not acted upon the amended
3ond Purchase bill sent from
the Senate, but it has passed a
resolution substantially identical
with the first section of the Sen
ate bill and without a Peek
amendment. The resolution is
in effect a declaration that it is
sense of the House that under
the act of March 3, 1881, the
Secretary of the Treasury has
authority to apply the surplus
to the purchase of bonds, lioth
Houses have now given their
opinion that the Secretary has
the power to purchase bonds,
and though there has been real
ly no legislation aiiirming the
same the Secretary appears to
have had his doubts removed.
He has issued a circular invit
ing proposals for the sale of
bonds to the government under
the authority of the act of
March 3, 1881, reserving, the
right to reject propDsals In case
it should be to the interest of
the government to do so. Brad-streets.

Tho elections to be this year will

'1 he platform adopted by the Re
publican l-onventton and to which
its candidates are pledged, de
clares in unmistakable terms, that
he Republican party is in favor
of continuing that policy. Presi
dent Cleveland in his" message to
Congress recommends free trade
in wool, and tho bill for a tariff re
vision, proposed by the Democrat
ic members of tho Committee on
Ways and Means, now pending
in Congress, places wool on the
free list; tho platform of the Dem
ocratic party in Oregon approves
this policv m these words: "Re
solved, That we most earnestly
and unqualifiedly endorse the pol
icy of tariff revision, and a reduc
tion of the surplus revenue to the
needs of the government, econom
ically administered, as set foi'th in
the President's last annual mes
sage to Congress."
It will be seen that the Demo
cratic p.irty in Oregon are fully
committed to the views of the
President, and in case of success
will assist in placing wool on the
free list. Should they accomplish
this it will ruin the greatest in
dustry in Grant Co., ind bring the

The Oregonian under tho cap

".Mr. John P. Irish, President
Cleveland's accredited agent, comes
to Oregon to tell the wool-growers
ot this state that free trade in wool
will not hurt them; that their
wool will bring them just as much
nude'' free trade as uuiler protec
tion, if not a little more.
Mr. Roger Q. Mills, chairman
of the committoo of ways ami
means of the hou. e of representa
tives, goes to Providence to tell
the manufacturers of that city and
of the East generally that free
trade in wool will give them
cheaper wool, and enable them to
make more money than they do
The democratic platform of Ore
gon, and th democratic orators
and newspapers of this state, ap
prove the administration policy of
free trade iu wool, tt-11 the wuol
groweiK in Oregon that it will be
a good thing for them, and that
their wool will biing them just
as much money as bforr.
Democratic and mugwump news
papers and orators of the Eastern
states ussure manufacturers there
that free trade in wool will give
them cheaper wool; that it will
enable them to supply themselves
with tho foreign product, and
therefore, will force the wool
growers of the West to sell at low
prices. And the people of manufac
turing districts of the East are
asked to sustain this administra
tion, because its policy of free
trade in wool and continued pro
tection to woolens, is j'ist what
their interests require.
It is the supposition of tho
agents of the administration to
Oregon that the people of this
state have too little intelligence to
see, or are so blinded with par
tisanship t hat they will not see,
that this is a frudulent scheme,
facing both ways. It will he worth
while to watcii their features after
uliltle, to note disappointment
s?alin0r over them, as a result of
banking on this .supposition'"
"While the Democrats in their
Slate convention were profuse in
their praises and compliments to
Cleveland, they were, neverthe
less, as silent as the grave on his
violated pledges of tho civil servi :o
reform and Territorial home ride,
as well as in a few other short
comings of tho administration. It
would not have been healthy for
them to have looked into these
subj ct." Oregon Blade.
"Free trade U not the question
The Democratic party is not for
free trad." So says a Democratic
paper of Oregon. But the Demo
crats party is for free trade in
wool, lumber, fruits, metals, and
pretty much every thing else that
Oregon produces. Still it is "not
a free trade pirty." Not at all.
