LET US BE FAIR.
What is one man's meat is another
man's poison is a very trite and homely
proverb but it applies with peculiar
force to the question of a protective
tariff. From a strictly non-partisan
stand-point it seems hardly fair to And
fault with the -McKinley bill because, as
the New York Evening Pout alleges, it
ha.3 raised the price of such household
necessities as meats, flour, potatoes
butter and other domestic products
about fifteen per cent. During the pas
sage of the bill both its friends and foes
protested they were fighting in the
interest of the producers. If, as the
i'utl insinuates, higher prices for farm
products have resulted through the suc
cess of the protectionists, we submit,
that in all fairness, low tariff men should
be the last to complain. If these latter
really had the interest of the farmer at
heart when they fought for a low tariff
or a tariff for revenue only, they will
now rejoice at better prices and the
prospec t of still better for farm products,
no matter by what means these prices
were brought about. It is nothing but
demagogy and the most contemptible
form of partisanship to appeal to the
working classes who are not farmers and
pointing to higher prices for such articles
as we have named say "Behold the effect
of a high tariff." The fact is, apart
from all politics, nothing gives us greater
hope for the prosperity of the whole
country in times to come than the pros
prospect of better prices for everything
the farmer has to sell. When the
farmer is prosperous, the whole country
is prosperous, and the man who loves
his country's prosperity better than
his party will rejoice in any honorable
measure that will accomplish this
Mr. William Holder, state lecturer for
the grange returned yesterday from at
tending the meeting of the state grange
just held at Hillsboro. He says it was
the largest and most enthusiastic meet
ing the grange has had for nianv years.
Reports from all quarters showed that
the order was never in a more prosper
ous condition. He attributes this largely
to the fact that the grange continues to
keep aloof from all political entangle
ments. In common .with many others
Mr. H;lder believes that no secret so-
steadfast adherence to this policy will
canse the grange to continue in vigorous
existence when other political farmers'
organizations shall have passed away.
As an order, therefore, the grange will
not affiliate with any third party move
ment, while individual members are left
free to do as they please. Such a course
make the grange a poor field for the tal
ents of the chronic office-seeker or the
disgruntled politician, but the order will
suffer nothing on this account. A vote
was taken on Wednesday on the question,
Where shall we hold our next annual
Meeting? and The Dalles lost it by only
one ballot. Salem was the place chosen.
A committee was appointed to draft a
new assessment law which would be
satisfactory to the grangers. The mem
bers of this committee are Judge Boise,
R. A. Irvine of Albany and J. Voorhees,
of Woodburn. Printed copies of the
bill will, in due time, be distributed
among the grangers, so that its provis
ions mav 1 thnrntivhlv luniLiunl 'KAnHA

the next election, and those only sup
ported for office who will pledge them
selves in its favor. If the bill should
prove satisfactory to the grangers it may
nit no important figure in the next elec
tion. If the grange shall succeed in
framing and passing a good assessment
law they will have done no small service
to the country. -We are. pleased to find
them engaged in this work and wish
them abundant success.
The East Oregonian says :" JThe pros
perity of a free people can never depend
upon 'putting money in circulation,' or
'liberal appropriations wisely made.,' "
This may be a very, sound maxim, of
political economy for aught we know,
but the philosopher of the East Ore
gonian will have a heap of trouble in
convincing the people of these parts that
an appropriation, sufficiently "liberal"
to finish the Cascade Locks and open the
Columbia river to navigation and so
"wisely made-' that the. 'appropriation",
shall be contingent upon the "'M'brkabe.

Secretary Foster appears to be getting
what the boys call "rattled" over the
condition of the treasury. To quiet the
alarm created by the announcement that
he intended to extend the out-standing
4a per cent bonds at 2 per cent, instead
of receeming them when they mature
September the first next, which would
have been done under Cleveland's admin
istration, he had his director of mint fur
nish a statement to the press which
made it appear that the enormous sum
of $258,000,000 was available to pay any
debts or appropriation. This was so
absurd that Mr. Foster had himself in
terviewed in order that he might say
that he did not altogether endorse that
statement. He then proceeds to figure
out an available cash surplus of $70,000,
000 and to naively inform the countrv
that he also considers the $100,000,000 in
gold, which has always been regarded as
a reserve held against the $360,000,000
greenbacks in circulation, to be available
cash, and that he will not hesitate to use
it if it comes to a pinch. Notwithstand
ing these statements the daily balance
sheet of the treasury shows a surplus of
less than $12,000,000.
Baby is sick. The woeful expression
of a Des Moines teamster's countenance
showed his deep anxiety was not entire
ly without cause, when he inquired of a
druggist of the same city what was best
to give a baby for a cold? It was not ne
cessary for him to say more, his counte
nance showed that the pet of the family,
if not the idol of his life was in distress.
"We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," was the druggist's answer.
"I don't like to give the baby such strong
medicine," said the teamster. You know
John Oleson, of the Watters-Talbot Print
ing Co., don't you? inquired the drug
gist. "His baby, when eighteen months
old, got hold of a bottle of Chamberlain's
though Kemedy and drank the whole of
it. Of course it made the baby vomit
very freely but did not injure it in the
least, and what is more, it cured the ba
by's cold. The teamster already knew
the value of the Remedy, having used it
himself, and was now satisfied that there
was no danger in giving it even to a
baby. For sale by Snipes & Kinersly.

Two stories characteristic of the negro
were told in the smoke room of a trans
atlantic steamer. -
Said a gentleman from New Orleans
'1 stood on the levee in our city one
morning while the paymaster of a river
steamer was engaged in paying off the
"As each man presented himself at the
cashier's window the paymaster asked
the question whether he would sign his
name or make his mark. If he was un
able to write the paymaster, of course,
subscribed the name and left a place for
the man to place a cross.
You must recollect that since the
close of the war and the establishment
of schools for freedmen the negroes of
the south are very unwilling to admit
ignorance upon their part.
"The payment of the men proceeded
without incident until one yonng up
country darky presented himself at the
window in response to the calling of the
nam Eugene Jackson.
" 'Will you write your name or make
a cross, Jackson? said the paymaster.
" Til write my name.' replied the
"The pen was handed to him and the
place for his signature was carefully
pointed oat on the pay roll.
"The man took the pen clumsily,
dipped it in the ink, looked at it and
then at the pay roll and finally laid it
down on the desk.
' 'What time is it?" he asked, looking
up at the paymaster.
" 'It is just 10 o'clock. was the reply.
"' 'Well, then.' said the darky. '1 guess

"We called the man 'old Uncle Ned,
continued the speaker. "He was a dear
old white headed fellow, with a bent back
and about seventy years old at the time
the incident I am about to relate oc
curred. "He had lived in a little shanty in the
town for years and did odd jobs at
whitewashing, masonry work and va
rious other things.
"One day I wanted a man to stack
some brick for me in piles of a thousand
each, and to turn a little something in
the way of Uncle Ned I hired him for
'Can you count. Ned? I asked him
after I had told him what I wanted.
'Yes. indeed. I kin, massa," the old
fellow replied with a chuckle. I kin
count right smart, and he ran off the
numerals up to ten glibly enough.
"Ned began his task and worked
steadily for some hours. 1 looked out
of my office window after awhile and
saw that he had far exceeded his number
of a thousand bricks to a stack.
"I walked out to see about it. He was
hard of hearing and did not detect my
approach as I came up behind him. I
drew nearer and overheard him say, as
he lay each brick on the stack: 'A nuddei

way; that is not counting. I thought
you could count one. two, three, four,

"There was something pathetic about
the poor old follow's speech." continued
the speaker. "Of course I paid him for
his day's work," he added; "but 1 had
to have his stack of bricks recounted, and
had to give the balance of the job to a
couple of twelve-year-old boys, who were
more expert at figures than he." New
English Hospital Statistic.
Taking the quantity of medicine used
at St. Bartholomew's hospital, London,
an a fair criterion of the medicine used
per patient, the quantities of medicine
used every year in the hospitals of this
country are as follows: Ointment, 80.000
pounds; cod liver and castor oils and va
rious kinds of mixtures and lotions, etc.,
150,000 gallons: upward of half a million
pills, and between thirty and forty tons
of linseed. Mr. H. C. Burdett estimates
that the hospitals of the kingdom have
invested property worth ten millions.
Their income is nearly a million and a
quarter per annum.
The expenditure per bed varies most
strangely. It is least in Scotland and
greatest in an Irish institution. At
Westminster it is only 70 per bed; at
University College hospital it is 110 per
bed; at the Royal Surrey County hospi
tal it is 111; at the Devon and Exeter
51, and about the same at the South
Devon and East Cornwall hospital.
