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 THE PEOPLE. 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 not that. 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 CLUB. 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 substitute. ORGANIZATION EFFECTED. 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 tion generally. 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 .
