THEY WILL NOT AGREE.
The tariff bills continue toxcite the
deepest "interest. The general impres-
toon in'the East seems to be that Gor-
man and his confreres will drive the
houee as they have driven the senate, as
they'hold the balance of power, and that
it will either be the senate bill or noth
ing. We concede the plausibleness of
this theory, bat there are some factors
that those who make the argument,
leave out of their escalations. ' First
they start out on the theory that some
tariff legislation must be had, and this
we think is a serious mistake. - It is not
absolutely necessary that any legislation
should be forced. The democrats of the
boose have as good artillery as the sen
ate, for they can insist on the Wilson
bill or the present law. Besides the
temper of the members of the house
. should be taken into consideration,.
The senate led by -Gorman who got np
on his hind legs and howled, was indig
nant at the president's interference with
the business of tbesenate and 'his attempt
to coerce lepislatton. At the same time
the senate has interfered with . and
usurped the prerogatives of the house,
as no senate has ever done -before. The
bill for raising revenue must be origin
ated in the house. The -senate conced
ing this, take the house bill and so
changed it that it is no longer the bouse
bill but a lull originated in the senate,
and clearly against the constitution.
The lower house of congress will if there
are men in it resist this encroachment
at the sacrifice of 'everything else. It
has its party behind it, it has the presi
dent behind it, and it 'has the constitu
tion behind both. Looked upon as a
party measure and from a democratic
standpoint, the 'house -cannot afford to
pass ;tbe senate bill. The' individual
members of congress must face theircoo
etituents this fall, for re-election. They
can go before them in pretty good shape
by resisting the attempt of the senate to
practically violate the constitution, and
can justly claim that they passed a tariff
bill on lines following the promises of J
the platform. If they cannot do this
tthey have no ground to stand on. For
these and many other reasons, we be
lieve the bill will hang up, and that no
tariff legislation will be perfected at
SHE PLAYED GHOST.
A Columbus, Ind., dispatch, of July
29th says :
Dr. Beck was visiting his sweetheart,
Miss Grace Cobee, at New Born last
night, when she took it into her head to
frighten him by playing ghost. She
left him on the veranda, saying she was
. going for a drink. She threw a sheet
over her head and came upon him sud
denly, from around the house. Dr.
Beck .'drew his revolver and called on
the figure to stop. He called three
times, but the girl heeded him not.
Then the doctor shot twice. One ball
entered Miss Cohee's abdomen ' and an
other lodged in her leg. She will prob
There are several morals to this story,
each, better than the other. The first
is, never to play ghost. The second,
never associate with girls who can think
of no better amusement than "playing at
being a ghost. Third, never fool with a
doctor ' anyhow, especially in the ghost
line, because he has assisted so many in
giving them up. Fourth, never carry a
pistol, especially when you are visiting
a lady. Fifth, never shoot at anything
until you know what it is. Sixth, don't
shoot at a ghost. If it ia a ghost you
can't hurt it, and if it ain't you will
probably feel badly to think you have
killed a blamed fool. Seventh, never
trust yourself alone with a woman in
the dark. Eighth, when you know a
man carries a pistol drop the ghost busi
ness and kill him with a club. Ninth,
don't own a pistol. Tenth, don't blow
in your money for extra sheets. Hav
ing them too handy causes trouble.
Eleventh, leave your abdomen and legs
behind when yon come the ghost act.
Twelfth, avoid all rashly original jokes,
like making a ghost of yourself, and
when you are in love stick to the old
chestnuts if you have to bejuttenish.
. And thirteenth, don't be a blamed fool
There are a , number of others, but
these will do for samples.
THIS ROUTE THE BEST.
Several of the valley papers in advo
cating the completion of the Oregon
Pacific to a point fifty-two miles west of
Prineville. use some queer arguments
that would be .much more effective if
true. The principle argument is that
freights can be delivered in Prineville
from San Francisco for one cent a pound,
and that to get frieghts from Portland
costs four cents a pound, now, sent by
way of The Dalles. The' freight from
here to Prineville in the Bummer time is
three-fourths of a cent a pound, and in
the winter it sometimes, but seldom,
rises to as high as a cent and a .half per
pound. ' The freight from Portland to
The Dalles by the river is $5 a ton,
making lhj rate from Portland to Prine
ville, except a short time in the winter,
one cent a pound, or exactly what our
contemporaries are counting on by the
new route. Besides, when the freight
18 costing over, a cent a pound by this
route, it couldn't be .bandied at alt ou
the Oregon Pacific because at that time
it would be snowed under. 1
The American Railway Union leaders
are being prosecuted and it was heralded
broadcast at the time they were indicted
that the grand ' jury would also inquire
into the conspiracy formed by the rail
way managers. This latter part of the
program was suddenly cat. Will Judge
Grosscapkindly tell the country why?
The feeling has been steadily growing
that there is one law for the rich another
for the poor, a law that the employe is
sure- to respect, bat which is not quite
large- enough to reach an employer.
This state of affairs is today the most
dangerous threat to our government,
and unless the remedy is applied and
that soon, there is going to be an up
heaval that will mark a new era.

"History f the cuisine fairlv teems
with, descriptions of costly meals," re
marked a resident of Brooklyn recent
lyto a writer for the Washing-ton Star.
"We read how that profligate Helio-g-abalus,
the Roman emperor, had a
single dish on his table once that cost
two hundred thousand dollars, and how
another Roman, Aelin Verus, gave a
supper to a dozen cronies that cost a
quarter of a million dollars. Then
Vitelline, still another Roman and an
emperor, likewise -entertained his
brother at a little smack that used up
a couple of hundred thousand; but
these were ancient fellows, who had
nightingales' tongues and humming
birds' brains and ' similar marvelous
dainties. Coming down to modern days
and plain, ordinary, everyday Tiata and
eg-gs, 1 ate a supper once, in this very
town that cost a friend of mine four
teen hundred dollars. A gentleman
named Parker kept an establishment
devoted to entertaining gentlemen at
sundry gaip.es of chance. One night
the friepd I speak of and myself were
killing an evening- here together, when,
wc conceived the idea that a visit to
Parker's would' be just the thing. We
put it intoxecution at once. I have
never g-amblea m my life, and my J
friend has not done it since. We went
upstairs and entered the room just as
supper was announced. My friend did
not want' to eat anything, but I was
hungry, and when some-plausible ras
cal of a dealer told me that there was
broiled Smithfield ham. flanked with
pullets' eerers as a sort of side issue to
the otherwise gorgeous feast I broke
for ' the .supper room, despite, my com
panion's pleadings. Of course he fol
lowed me when he found his protesta
tions were useless, and we enjoyed the
feed immensely. When we came out
my friend pulled out a twenty-dollar
bill and said he would play a turn or
two to pay for our supper. I begged
him in turn not to do it, but he was as
obdurate as . I had been. lie lust his
twenty-dollar bill and tried to get? it
back. In two hours fourteen hundred
dollars were gone glimmering.. I have
never felt so downright hungry since
that a slight request from a mere ac
quaintance cannot keep me away from
a. dead-head feed." . ' 1
