Hon. J. B. Cleland, in the course of
his rem arks last evening, referred to the
remarkable discipline of the democratic
party, and wished for a share of it in
his own part'. He referred to the
quorum-counting rule adopted by
Speaker Crisp, which was first practiced
by "Czar" Reed. Reed was branded by
the opposing party as despotic, auto
cratic and an American czar when he
insisted on counting aa present a demo
cratic member whom he eaw In his seat,
though refusing to vote. "At this ses
sion of congress," eaid Mr. Cleland,
."Mr. Crisp adopted the same measure,
nou A vtnr iruui mjw . iuv uoiuucrttbiu
. party will nnbluehingly affirm that such
was always the democratic policy and
was originated by them."
In cenfirmation of Mr. Cleland's ar-
-gument we cite the fact of the undying
-esteem in which Thomas Jefferson is
held as a democrat by that party. - Yet
-Jefferson was as strong a protectionist
-as is any republican today. When the
democrats say that they always were in
favor of free trade, though we ar. not
moved to deny them that claim, let
them investigate the belief of Thomas
Jefferson upon that question our 'third
president, and the man often referred to
a8 the founder of the democratic party.
He once wrote that his idea was that
41we should encourage home manufao
- tares to the extent of our own con sum p
- tion of everything of which we raise the
- raw material." He also , said: "The
.prohibiting duties we lay on all articles
of foreign manufacture, which prudence
requires us to establish at home, with
' the patriotic determination of every
good citizen to use no foreign article
which can be made within ourselves,
without regard to difference of price, se
' cures us against a relapse into foreign
W. P. Lord, the republican nominee
for governor, is well known throughout
the state for his estimable qualities, his
intellectual abilities, and his honest
and conscientious performance of duty.
No man in the state has wider popular
ity, nor is more generally resnected. It
is fitting that his name a synonym for
dignity and intelligence heads, the
state republican ticket this year. The
difference between Lord and Pennoyer
is the difference between a boor and a
gentleman. Let us have a republican
administration for once all - the way
through. We do no not want Oregon to
be classed with Nebraska and Kansas
It "is reported the army of common
wealers in Washington City are costing
the government $1,000 a day, and they
are becoming exceedingly burdensome.
These are the kind of soldiers Gov. Pen
noyer likes. He would veto a militia
appropriation, but is in favor of sup
porting in idleness a lot of loafers who
are making a demonstration against the
government, filling with apprehension
the minds of those who' are feeding
them ; insolent, disorderly, vicious, an
archistic vagrants who are trying to
breed trouble and are intensifying the
It seems the Wilson bill will pass in a
very few days and prices of wool and
wheat, fruits and vegetables, which are
yet unsettled by the long suspense, will
find their level and stay there until it is
repealed. The prices will be something
like they are at present, but will never
rise to what they were in 1892. The
competition of foreign producers, who
have the more favorable conditions of
low wages, cheaper living, lower trans
portation rates, etc., will force our pro
ducers to sell at their price or abandon
their production. Our markets will be
filled with foreign goods and the country
will be drained of money to pay for
them with. We may have the lower
house this fall, but we cannot gain a
majority iu the 6enate so soon. The out
look for the next three years ia surely
To Consume the Surplus.
Oregon needs a few more useless com
missioners, and the following new offi
cials are suggested in order to consume
the surplus state funds : State rabbit
chaser, irrigation agitator, cricket ex
aminer, artificial rainmaker, alfalfa in
spector, hop louse and potato-bug com
missioner and tumble-bug statistician.
TOWSEHTlviE. r HIS MATCH.
A Iogr Has a Difficulty ivltU a Gander and
Comes Out Second Best.
A bit of meat cast on the lake in one
of the parks of Allegheny City recently
gave a forcible illustration, of the re
nowned pugilistic qualities of the genus
Anser. The scrap was tossed to an
old gray gander,sailing and dipping ma
jestically back and forth, with his harem,
at a safe and respectful distance behind
him. Just as he made a graceful dive
forward a stray dog, of hungry aspect
and venturesome turn of mind, made for
the meat also. The gander paused,
astonishment written in every line of
his craned neck and extended wings.
The dog friskily brought up at the
water's edge and reached out a paw.
The coveted morsel was midway be
tween him and the gander. Quick as
thought the gander slapped the water
with his wings, beating the scrap be
low the surface and diving after it.
Somehow he miscalculated, and when
he came up the morsel was dancing a
few feet away. The ' dog, says the
Pittsburgh Times, was softly dimpling
the water with his paw. At every wave
the scrap came nearer to him. The
harem drew closer around its lord, and
the oldest in the flock gave a few words
of advice to him. She received a sound
slap with a wing, apparently a command
to mind her own business. Just as the
dog reached out for the meat the gan
der gave a lunge also. Bill and paw
both missed it. It disappeared, only to
rise tantalizingly a few feet away.
The dog was no longer hilarious.
This was too serious business, and he
ran up and down the shore, bark angri
ly, while the gander retired to wreak
vengeance on his hapless harem. A
moment later, seeing the scrap almost
ashore on the waves of the conflict, he
made a sudden dash. So did the dog.
They met, and for a few seconds gray
winjrs, dog hair and wild screams
of purp and gander filled the air. Then
the' dog trotted slowly away with a
face full of religious fervor turned
toward the theological seminary, while
the gander, wiping1 the sweat of vio
tory from his brow, carried the scrap,
for which he seemed to have lost his
appetite, to his proud family.

Ask" the average man what he thinks
is about the average diameter the

taken as a fair standard for the big

An Immense Meteoric Stone.
An aerolite of immense size fell i thf
other day into the Caspian sea near the
coast of the peninsula of Apcheron, or
which Baku, the Russian oil city, is lo
cated. It is lying1 in water of a deptr
of nearly thirty feet and stands sever
feet above water. As it must have sunt
into the soft ground to the depth o:
some feet, the stone cannot measurt
less than forty feet in height. It mad
a terrible noise when coming down, anc
kept the water boiling Ao a great- dis
tance for.a lon;r tirno. '
THE FIRST CA3LE.
It Was Simply n Naktvl Com with io Pro
tecting &lieat1i. ,
In modern, cables tho core is always
protected first by a serving -of hemp or
jute and then by an otitcr sheath of soft
steel wires, which arc relied on to fur
nish the mechanical strength which the
-able must fcaru in ordt:r that it may
stand the pulling abjut v.-hich it re
ceives in laying and repairing. But
in the pioneer trial thi-ru was n-. idea
of p protecting sheath; the naked core
was to be laid in the ch:::in?l t form
the first telegraph Ix'twn Kngland
and France. There was hn'. it single
wire of copper inside, e x -r.lh!;r to the
Saturday lleview (nowadays ta jre is al
ways a strand of several wires twisted
together), and ' thLs--wi:.. - i-.-:-r.-i with
gutta pcivha so tbi.:hl.v " t ""i:ig the
diameter to half an la-li. Th-.v r-jvered
wire was wound on a gr-.'al reel on the
deck of a steam tug in Dover harbor,
and after a nuinber of preliminary trips
the line was laid on the 'J-'tl f August,
1850. Lead sinkers were i;":n--hed at
every hundred yards to vars-v tin- cable
to the bottom, for in the abr-eiu-c of any
heavy sheathing . its gravity
scarcely exceedod that of :mi water.
The attempt was at on-:e r.::;!i- t opn
communication, but fh.-ayh iignals
seemed to pass nothing eoul-ij.v made
of them, and Mr. .Smith ivsc-rUs that
the operators at each end wer .. regret
fully forced tj the conclusion that those
at the other end har.i bren l-.incMiig, not
wisely, but t.o well. Cext v'.ay matters
were worue. no signals could iass at
all. The cable was broken, and so end
ed this first attempt r.t. submarine tel
egraphy. The signals cf the first day had been
unintelligible, not because of ar.y breach
of continuity on the part of the cable or
failure in teinpei'ance on the part of its
guardians, but simply in consequence of
electrostatic itKlaetioD, the influence of
which in "retarding the electric pulses
was not then understood.. It was to
overcome Ih? difficulty caused by in
duction that Sir William' Thomson,
eight years later, invented his mirror
galvanometer, thereby making it prac
ticable to sjK'ttk at a - reasonable pace
even through lines as long as those that
cross the Atlantic. i , , , . .
