The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
WHERE THEIR STRENGTH LIES.
In our opinion the main strength and
power for good of the Farmer's Alliance
movement consists in their absolute
Independence of the two great political
parties. So long as they hold the bal
ance of power they can enforce conces
sions to their demands. "".When ' they
become the tail of a democratic or rep
ublican kite they will simply afford
another example of John Jasper's well
known illustration. John had seen the
democrats on top and the republicans on
top, but he had never seen the niggar on
top. He had a dream. He thought he
'had died and was going up to heaven,
when he met Senator Mahone coming
down the hill. The Senator had knock
ed at the door and Saint Peter from
"within had asked "Who's dar." The
fenator answered "William Mahone."
Saint Peter asked '"Is you mounted
.William, cause you cannot get in less
vou's mounted." , And the Senator in
despair turned away. Just then he met
John Jasper and asked him where he
"was going. John replied "I'se gwing to
heaven." Said the Senator "You can
not get in unless you're mounted. I've
.just tried. But a happy thought struck
the senator and he forthwith put it in
execution. John got down on all fours
and the Senator mounted him, and fairly
cantered up the hill with the joy of thus
. getting through the pearly gates. When
. they came to the door the Senator rap
, ped and Saint Peter again asked "whose
dar?' The Senator answered "William
Mahone." "Is you mounted, William"
eaid Saint Peter. "I is" answered the
Senator. "Well, tie your hoss to de
fence an' come in."
THE JURY . SYSTEM.
Whatever good the jury may have
effected in the past and whatever bene
fits other countries may derive from it
now, in the United States it is fast be
coming a law word and a mockery.- So
frequently have the ends of justice been
defeated through venality and ignor
Tanfce that the finding of a jury is no
longer considered as the expression of a
wise or just conclusion. As the practice
' is, in many cases, the stupidly ignorant
are alone competent to serve. The man
of information, of reading, the man
familiar with passing events is necessar
ily debarred. The fact that he knows
anything shuts him out. Ignorance,
.gross, stupid, stolid ignorance is the
prime attribute of an American juror.
What a grim satire" it is upon the jury
system to have it stated that the counsel
, in the Sandy Olds' case now being tried
at Hillsbore; was anxious to form a jury
composed of men "who had not read the
Oregoniau." An inocent man, charged
with serious offence, who has not money
tmfficent to bribe the venal or fee a high
price lawyer capable of working on the
ieelingof the ignorance, had better a
thousand times be tried by a second rate
judge; whereas a guilty one, with suf
ficent means, has only to resort to these
expedients and he is free. .,
THE AUTHOR OF THE "CON
There is one crime that the Chboxiclb
in its heart of hearts, never laid to the
charge of Hon. E. O. McCoy. It never
accused him of writing his own defense.
Such allusions as that of "spleen and
venom" being "evolved" from some
one's "own inner consciousness" are
clearly the product of the fertile genius
who is, as all the world knows, the sole
and original inventor of the term
"congealed element" as the beautiful
and appropriate synonim of what was,
up to commencement of the last decade,
vulgarly called "snow."
It is a fact that was well known at the
time and well attested that E. 0. McCoy
busied himself going around among the
members of the house, the day before
the final vote was taken on the Haley
bill urging the members to vote for it
and the very next day, without any
warning, he got up on the floor of the
house, and made - an earnest speech
against it. This sudden conversion, it
self, is suspicious.

Senator Watklns Take a Hand.
Thk Dalles, Or., March 21, 1891.
Editor Chronicle : In an editorial in
the Times-Mountaineer of Thursday, that
paper commenting upon Representative
Jenning's House Bill," Ho. 204, 1 believe
uses this language : '. - '.
We are informed that oil the last day
of the session the senator from Lane
asked for unanimous consent to call up
bills which were low on the calendar.
A senator from Wasco county whose
name was not Hilton objected and this
bill was killed.
As I was the only senator from Wasco
county, except Senator Hilton I presume
this charge relates to myself. The state
ments are false in every particular and
the records will . so show. . The truth
about the matter is just this. A day or
two before the . legislature adjourned,
Senator Eakin of Lane county intro
duced a written resolution which was
sent to the clerk's desk and read. The
resolution in brief pioposed that the roll
of the senate be ' called ; that as the
name of each senator' was called he
should have the right to select and all
up any bill he saw fit and put it
upon its final passage. This resolu
tion, was , put to a vote of the
senate and voted down by the majority.
I voted against the resolution because
it was not probable that those senators
whose names were at the foot of the list
would ever be reached and because it
was unjust and unfair to them as I had
reasons to know from similar experience
two years ago. This resolution had no
referencewhatever to any particular bill ,
whether high or low 6n ' the .calendar.
No reference at all of any kind was made
to House bill No. 204, or any other
As I am not a mind reader I had no
idea then and have not the slightest idea
now what , bill the senator from Lane
Co., would have named on call of his
name if the resolution had prevailed.
Again, the senator could at any time he
wished have moved to suspend the rulee
and take up House bill No. 104 and as
he did not do so, I think it is but fair to
presume that he did not introduce the
resolution for the purpose of getting up
that bill. I did not oppose House bill
No. 204 and would have supported the
bill had it ever come up.
I am ready and willing at all times to
stand by the record.
The charges of the Times-Mountaineer
are false and I beleive maliciously and
knowingly so. . Geo. Watkixs.
AN OUTBROKEN MAYOK.
A New Orleans Official Thinks the
Lynching Affair Correct.
Mayor Shakespeare of New Orleans
makes no bones about his feelings in the
lynching matter. He declares bluntly
to a Tribune corresjjondent that Parker
son and his associates did just right.
He saw the citizens' call in the morning,
and knew something was going to hap-1
"Where were you during the riots?"
"Attending to my private business."
"Did you take any measures to pre
vent the tragedv?"
"Don't you regret it?"
"No, sir. 1 am an American citizen,
and am not afraid of the devil. These
men deserved hanging. We expected a
disagreement, and nad made arrange'
ments for a retrial. When I heard of
the verdict, I was frozen in my seat.
These men who did it were all peaceable
and law-abiding. The . Italians had
taken the law into their own hands, and
we had to do the same. It was what
they did in Italy. The Mafia got too
strong for them and what happened?
The sovereign took hold of it the king.
Here the sovereign also took hold of it
the people. I'll stand up for law-abiding
Italians fast enough," added tUis
outsnoken executive, "hut. thnan man
out here why they hoisted the Sicilian
nag above the stars and stripes and one
fellow 8 tarn ped the American flag under
his feet. I am an American and the
foreigner who comes to our shores and
abuses or repays our hospitality with
base ingratitude must suffer the conse
quences." A short time ago the following notice
appeared in the columns of the Times
Mouniaineer: ' Politics in this portion of the country
will be badly mixed hereafter, as is ai-
parent from the present trend of affairs.
Republicans are arrayed against each
other, and the bitter feeling existing will
do considerable towards insuring victory
for the Democratic party. Difference
should be healed, and the Times-
Mountaineer will take the initiative in
holding out the olive ' branch towards
any Republican who differ from it on
Just now this republican editor, is
holding out the "olive branch" to Sena
tor Watklns. He is attempting to do,
in the case of Senator Watkins, what he
blames the Chronicle for doing in the
case of McCoy and Hilton.
A Missouri Poet.
A Missouri poet uncorks in the fol
lowing style: "Twas out in the gloam
ing, way up in Wyoming, a maiden sat
combing her golden hair ; when heated
with roaming, all panting and foaming,
there came up ana hugged her. a erizzlv
bear. It didn't affright her, the bear
didn't bite her; sue lay back and mur
mered, 'still tighter, dear!' This broke
up old Bruin, he left off his wooin',
sneaked back to the mountains and hid
for a year." -
The salmon will have a hard time get
ting above the dalles of the Columbia
says the Oregonian, New wheels are
being placed in position at nearly every
available point on each side of the river
at the cascades and the dalles, and
arrangements have been made to ship
two carloads of the royal fish to Eastern
markets as soon as the close season is
over. Unless something is done soon in
the way of establishing fish hatcheries
for the Columbia there will be an end to
the salmon industry in a few years.
Even a goose laying golden eggs could
not satisfy the cupidity of man. Astor-

ITS TERRITORY. :
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agri
cultural and grazing country,, its trade reaching as
far south as Summer Lake, a distance of over twe
hundred miles. ;
THE LARGEST WOOL MARKET. .
The rich grazing country along the eastern slope
of the the Cascades furnishes pasture for thousands
of sheep, the -wool from which finds market here.
The . Dalles is the largest original wool shipping
point in America, about 5,000,000 pounds being
shipped this year.
THE VINEYARD OF OREGON.
The country near The Dalles produces splendid
c.rops of cereals, and its fruits cannot be excelled. It
is the vineyard of Oregon, its grapes equalling Calir
fornia's best, and its other fruits, apples; pears,,
prunes, cherries etc., are unsurpassed.
The salmon fisheries are the finest on the Columbia,
yielding this year a. revenue of $1,500,000 which can
and will be more than doubled in the near future.
The products of the beautiful Klickital valley find
market here, and the country south and east has this
year filled the warehouses, and all available storage
places to overflowing with their products.
It is the richest city of its size on the coast, and its
money is scattered over and is being used to develop,
more farming country than is tributary to any other
city in Eastern Oregon.
Its situation is unsurpassed! Its climate delight
ful! Its possibilities incalculable! Its resources un
limited! And on these corner stones she stands.
