The Chronicle is the Only Paper in
The Dalles that Receives the Associated
THE GRANGE AND THE ALLIANCE.
It 5s with no intention of drawing any
invidious comparison between the
grange and the farmers' alliance that we
venture to express the opinion that the
former has within it certain elements of
. strength, stability and usefulness that
will secure its vigorous endurance when
the latter shall have attained the period
of decrepitude and decay. The grange
is not strictly a political organization
and herein lies much of its strength and
promise for continued usefulness. The
members of the grange are free to fol
low their own party preferences, while
the constant discussion, in their ordinary
grange meetings and councils of such
matters as relate to the common inter
ests of the farming classes has tended to
make them intelligently and practically
nnited. The grange has always been
wisely conservative. As a result it has
quietly achieved and is still capable of
achieving an immense amount of practi
cal good. Just because it has wisely
steered clear of mere partisan politics it
has been the less afflicted with design
ing politicians. Just because it has lit
tle or nothing to offer to the political
demagogue, it has been the less troubled
- with this social parasite. Its principles
have bravely stood the test of passing
years and today it numbers forty states
and territorial organizations in as many
states and territories. During the past
two or three years it has taken a new
lease of life and a new and firmer hold
on the steady conservative : element of
onr farming population.
: The farmers' alliance, on the other
hand has flashed into existence like a
meteor. For the moment it threatens to
carry everything before it. But it is a
- political organization, and its very suc
cess is its weakness. There is no mis
taking the fact that it is infested with
mere political demagogues, whose only
object is to use it as a stepping stone to
place andower, and its tens of thous
ands of honest adherents are simply be
ing used as tools to accomplish this pur
pose. The old parties are in many
etates slobbering and sliming the alli
ance all over, preparatory to swallowing
it at one gulp, it is with no unfriendly
spirit we say so but rather, if possible,
as a warning to a society with many 'of
whose objects we have the warmest
sympathy. It is with very great regret
that we notice within it the elements of
iisintrigation and decay. We believe
many of its schemes are wholly im
practicable and visionary and that at no
great distance of time from the present,
the members themselves, many of them,
will see them to be so. The society
undertakes too much. Some of its
measures of reform belong rather to the
church and the school room than to the
political arena. Its financial reform is
. financial retrogression. Its clamor for
usury laws and unequal taxation of
money can have but the one effect of
driving capital out of every state that is
foolish enough to pass such laws. It de
nounces, class legislation while it de
mands in another form the very thing it
denounces. It would suppress the
national banking system without pro
viding any adequate substitute. Its
system of free coinage of silver, by
which a silver miner or bullion dealer
can take a quantity of silver for which
he cannot get more than 80 cents in any
market in the world, and have it coined
into a dollar is simply a species of the
worst form of class legislation.
The United States has no more
right to create a market - for
the silver miner and dealer in bullion
than in has to create a market for any
thing else. We take issue with the
alliance movement on these matters
with very great regret. We .would not
lie true to our convictions if we did not
do so. In everything that tends towards
a sound moral reformation' of our" cor
rupt political methods the alliance has
and will always have our cordial sup
port. ' We are none' the less' a friend to
the movement because we venture to
offer a friendly criticism. Many of its
-warmest adherents have ho faith in the
wisdom of the measures we have ventured
to disapprove and the friends of the
alliance will do will to heed the ad
vice of friendly criticism, lest by a plat
form burdened by impracticble meas
ures they imperil ,the , sucess of a
movement otherwise fraught with much
hope to the people and to the nation.
"Ten cent believers" are those who
contribute that sum to church, but have
hundreds for society. . '
OREGON'S GOVERNOR WITH
There is now considerable fault being
found with Governor Laughton of Wash
ington for his top free use of the veto
power. He, is charged, pretty generally
over the whole slate with having vetoed
almost every measure that would have
afforded the people relief from' the ex
horhitant charges of railroad corpora
tion. We. too, have a governor who
could beat the record of. Cleveland him
self, in the exercise of the veto power,
but with all the evils that the people of
Oregon can justly deplore we have one
thing to be thankful for a governor
that can be counted on pretty confident
ly, and at all times, when it is a' ques
tion of the rights of the people as op
posed to railroad or other corporations.
The worst enemy of Governor Pennoyer
cannot truthfully say he is not an honest
man. He may be a crank, but an hon
est crank is a heap better than a dishon
est pander to corrupt corporations, and
the governor whatever else he may be is
WHERE THE BLAINE BELONGS.
. The Times-Mounlaiiieer sends up a
wail because the question as to whether
or not the city will bond itself for ad
ditional funds with fhich to complete
the water works, has not been submitted
to a vote of the city tax payers. Allow
us to suggest that under section 5 of the
proposed Dalles pity charter, the council
could at any time have issued and sold
the city bonds and gone right along and
finished the water works without inter
ruption. The expense and delay of a
more than useless special election under
that bill would have been entirely un
necessary and uncalled for. The neces
sary delay, uncertainty and expense
attendant upon a special election is
wholly attributable, not to the council
but to those who are responsible for
smothering the charter bill and amend
ing the special election clause into The
Dalles City water bill.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF A
Trades unions or the organized confed
eration of the laboring classes have af
fected much for the laboring noor. It
too frequently happens that there is no
way of the employe obtaining justice
from his employer except by a club.
Moral suasion and an appeal to ' iustice
and righteousness have little influence,
these days, with' capitalists and monopo
listic corporations. It is therefore' re
freshing to find that through the influence
ot organized labor the meanest employe
of the biinrest corporation can. as a rule.
demand and obtain all reasonable con
cessions to his just demands. A corpo
ration whose untold millions srive it the
power to crush the poor at will, is powerr
less to deal unjustly with the poorest
servant in its employ where such associa
tions are in good working order. This is
just as it should be. , When a sense of
justice is absent a club is an excellent
The Dalles Now Boast of Having: a First
Clas Building and Loan Association.
On Thusday evening the . Columbia
Building and Loan Association organized
a local branch in this city with ' nine
teen members, and the following officers
were elected: President, H. J. Maier;
Vice-president, J. T.: Peters; Secietary,
J. M. Huntington ; Attorney, Frank
Menefee. Mr. Huntington will also act
as local agents to solicit members and
look after the interests of the associa
The Dalles has long needed an organiza
tion of this kind because there is nothing
that will help to' build up a town as
much as a good building and loan as
sociation. It is by no means ' a . new
thing or an .untried experiment. ; There
are in the United States today upwards
of 5000 building and loan asssciatious,
Philadelphia alone has 450. Denver
has 38 and there is scarcely a town of
any prominence in the country with
out one or more such organizations.
For persons of small incomes who de
sire to lay by a little each month or
who want ' to obtain a home of their
own, such an association is better than
a saving bank because every depositor
is a stockholder and receives his share
of the profits. All the money paid in
by the depositors is immediately loan
ed out to members on ' approved real
estate security and every borrower as
soon as 'he gets the money begins pay
ing it back in small amounts- every
month together with the accrued inter
est which goes into the general fund
and is reloaned to some one else with
the money that is 'paid in by the non
borrowing members bo that the inter
est on every loan is compounded each
month for 72 months at which time the
stock will have matured and each mem
ber .will receive the face value in cash
making him a net gain of about 24 per
cent per annum on his little monthly
savings. Loans are made to members
only, at a rate of 3 per cent per annum
and every borrower has ' six years in
which to repay the loan or he can" repay
it sooner if he cfcW.,-2n other words it
enables every person who owns land to
build himself a home at nominal cost of
over and above' the" actual cost of the
building.. ' '.. V
Mr. Huntington will gladly explain all
details to any who wish to became mem
bers, and he hopes to1 see the ' member
ship largely increased. - i .

The Grate City of the Inland Empire is situated at C
the head of navigation on the Middle Columbia, and
is a thriving, prosperous city. O
ITS TERRITORY. l
It is the supply city for an extensive and rich agri
cultural an -1 grazing country, its trade reaching as
far south as Summer Lake, a distance of over Wc
hundred miles. r
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 .shipDmir
point in America, about
snipped this year.
THE VINEYARD OF OREGON.
The country near The Dalles produces splendid
crops of cereals, and its fruits cannot be excelled. It
is the vineyard of Oregon, its grapes equalling Cali
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
a,d "riIL 1)8 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.
