RESORTING TO DECEPTION.
The Oregonian is square against the
proposed jute eack factory. This was
expected. But at the same time it was
expected that the Oregonian would not
make snch a shallow statement as it
does in this, yesterday. It says: "To
abolish the contract system for convict
labor in this state and fet up a jute mill
will cost $50,000 per year in additional
taxation, without cheapening grain bags
to farmers. This sum is demanded of
taxpayers to satisfy labor agitators, who
claim that a few foundry workmen are
injured by competition of convict labor
on Btoves." And this, it adds, "is a con
cise statement of the ease."
It is not.
In his report to the legislature, the
superintendent of the penitentiary, Mr.
Downing, is very brief concerning the
operations of the looms at Walla Walla.
That plant cost less than $150,000, and
has saved that anionnt of money to the
farmers in two years. The cost is $20,
000 less than Mr. Downing states, and
for Oregon in the light of the experience
had in Washington state, $125,000 would
be an ample appropriation. San Qnin
tin last year produced 2,000,000 sacks for
California farmers at 5t cents each.
How much did Oregon farmers pay
the train sack ring? 9. and 7!.C the
The hobby horse prepared for the op
ponents of the jute mill to ride upon, into
the good graces of the grain sack ring, is
stated bv the Oregonian to be taxes of
$50,000 per year "to pay for protection
of a few laborers in private fonndriei
from competition of convict labor." '"The
labor agitator" this time appears to be the
farmers themselves, the honest men of
Oregon who pay their taxes promptly
and are as well advised on this subject
as the champion of the grain bag ring or
the magnates of the stove contract.
Sagacious individuals, presumably
connected with the whisky trust, have
bought op all the whisky in sight and
are ready to take all that is offered.
This is the way these gentlemen reason :
The democratic party will remove the
tariff on many articles and reduce it on
others. That this will greatly diminish
the nation's revenues they readily dis
cover. In order to supply the deficiency
an additional tax, they believe, will be
put on whisky. The holders of whisky
already taxed wijlf thus realize the
amount of the increase of the tax as a
profit on their venture. Congressman
Owen Scott of Illinois, has introduced a
bill taxing whisky $1.25 a gallon, an in
crease of CO cents. It may become a
law. The chances of its passage improve
with every added ounce of tariff-reform
sentiment in congress. Here, then, is a
new though thoroughly selfish tariff-reform
really that can be counted on for
some efficient lobbying when the time
comes. And it will be a power that will
be felt in congress.
A Washington dispatch yesterday
states that the republican caucus of
senators developed the fact that those
attending had little or no confidence in
the republicans controlling the next
senate, but the republican members of
the committee of privileges and elections
will gtrt together all facts in connection
with senatorial elections, in order that
where contests arise they may be able to
prevent the swearing in of men who
may be illegally elected. No tour of the
close states will be made nor any effort
to prevent the combination of populists
and democrats in the close states, and
there should not be.
There is a class in the state of New
York working for the abolishment of
the death penalty, and it is likely the
legislature will take such action as will
make life imprisonment the most severe
penalty for a crime. Those who favor
this movement do not believe in taking
human lives, and they urge that many
an innocent man has suffered the death
penalty, his innocence being established
after death. It is only a ques ion of
time when this plan will be generally
adopted throughout the land.
