THEORY AGAINST FACT.
Senator Hill opened the campaign in
New York Thursday at Syracuse. In
his opening remarks he said :
"In a country like ours, which js gov
erned by political parties, and not by
royal families, the existence of at least
two great parties is essential to the gen
eral wefare. There must necessarily be
a difference of opinion on some public
questions, and such differences honestly
entertained furnish no excuse for coarse
abuse nor bitter personal reflections. .. I
propose to conduct a creditable canvass
in behalf of my. party, which has hon
ored me with its leadership, so that at
its conclusion, whatever the result may
be, I shall be able to retain at least my
, own self-respect, and I hope, as well, the
present respect of my adversaries. Facts
and arguments ' are weapons w hich I
shall invoke, rather than vilification and
vituperation. In great' political con
tests, measures and riot men should be
essentially the controlling factors."
However much we may disagree with
' the opinions, theories or practices of
Senator Hill, we honor him for the sen
timent expressed. Abuse is ' not argu
ment, and noise and fury and vitupera
tion are poor weapons indeed. Politic
ally the population is pretty evenly
divided between the . republican and
democratic parties. For the sake of
this argument we will assume that it is
evenly divided. That' each party, and
the individuals who compose each party
are conscientious in their beliefs, we be
. lief to be absolutely true. "We do not
believe that either party, or the mem
bers of either party, would willingly do
anything which they believed would in'
jure tne country, we do not believe a
republican would advocate a protective
tariff if he thought that system was do
ing what the democrats claim for it
Nor do we believe that any democrat
would advocate free trade if he believed
its effects would., be injurious to the
country. Neither party can injure the
country, its trade or prosperity, without
injuring itself and every member of its
party, as well as those of the other.
So much for that ; yet it is because of
this belief that we eee no possibility of
the country further clinging to the de
mocracy. Because of this belief we nrn-
dict a sweeping -viqtory for the republN
. can party throughout the entire north.
The level-headed democrats realize that
however attractive the theories of free
trade may have been ; however sonoroira
the rounded perorations about trading
with the world may have been, that the
facts "and the theory do not conincide.
The free-trade picture is not true" to the
free-trade fact. The theory was a ro
mance founded on sentiment, the reali
zation is a sorrowful story founded on
fact. That is the democatic condition.
pn the other band was the protective
tariff fact. . The country was prosperous,
the capitalist found investment for Mb
money, the laborer employment for his
hands, wages were good and eruploy
ment'to be had for the asking. This
was the" protective tariff fact which the
dissatisfied traded off for the democratic
theory. The change has been tried, with
'what degree of satisfaction the parties
who caused the change can say for them
selves. The American voter is honest,
and he is intelligent. '..He realizes the
mistake and will walk up to the polls
cheerfully to rectify it, just as soon as
the opportunity is given him. Therein
lies the certainty of democratic downfall
and therein lies the assurance of repub
lican victory. Abuse will not change
the facts. It will net aid or strengthen
either eide. The. campaign is one of
measures and of principles. It is a fair,
. square issue, not between pure. and good
men on one side, and impure and evil
ones on the other ; but a trial of conflict
ing systems, with the American- people
in the jury box, can there be any doubt
as to the verdic. ?
Minister Zeballos of the Argentine
Republic says a remarkable stimulation
of the wool industry of his country has
resulted from the enactment of the
. tariff law in this country. Raw wool
has made heavy advances in the Argen
tine markets, similar to the rise in Lon
don and Paris, and extensive prepara
tion's are being made for the wool ex
ports to this country. Mr. Zeballos is
just back from New York, where he
found merchants were largely increasing
their wool orders, and new steamship
lines were being projected to handle the
new trade. The minister said this coun
try bought $2,000,000 of the coarse grade,
long combed Argentine wool last year,
but the trade promises to reach $6,000,
000 this year. The trade in fine Merino
wools promises to triple in the same
manner. Minister Zeballos says the
increased, price of wool overcomes the
fears felt by . American wool-growers
that the foreign competitors would pull
down the price and k ill the Americau
wool production. Pacific Farmer.
The Pendleton Tribune says that the
sheriff sold fourteen good horses last
week to N. H. Cottrell, for $25, of at the
rate of $1.78 apiece. The Alliance
Herald lays the blame on John Sherman
and the demonetization of silver.; If its
idea ia correct and silver was restored to
say $1.26 an ounce, those horses would
have brought $3.57. As J the Herald
claims the horses were worth $100 each,
will it kindly explain what caused the
$96.43 deficiency in price over and above I
the fall silver value.
We do not know how often we shall
have to state that we will not give space
to obituary poetry. Nearly every death
that occurs in this neighborhood stirs in
some one a divine efflatus and forthwith
they insult clean, white paper with the
veriest rot, devoid of sense, devoid of
measure, and imperfect of rhyme. We
will not willingly be a party to taking
.advantage of the dead. Once more we
Reiterate we will not publish obituary
poetry. We don't want it, and respect

Max "Vogt is justly proud of the show
ing made from his ranch. Last spring
Lhe planted several acres with -hops, and
thinking they would ' not produce any
thing this year, did not pole most of
them. . Those that were taken care of,
however, show that they are pleased
with both soil and climate,, as they
would yield at least 1200 pounds to the
acre. He had a very-' fine exhibit of
them at the pavilion, Froni "the same
ranch he exhibited corn planted in the
latter part of June, and some late
potatoes, taking the first premium on'
both of these as well as the hops
The exhibits have been removed from
the pavilion today preparatory to , the"
dance tonight. The making of the art
and agricultural exhibits in the city in
stead of at the fair ground was a decided
improvement and resulted in a large at
tendance and' consequently an awakened
interest that will make itself felt another
year. The exhibit, taken all in all, is a
remarkably good one. the- art depart
ment alone being worth the admission fee
and demonstrating the fact that The
Dalles has among its citizens artists of
more than ordinary merit.
The steamer Dalles City collided with
tne inompson Wednesday - morning
soon after leaving her dock. The fog
was very thick and the Thompson was
lying bow on to the wharf, with' her
stern in the channel. . Captain Johnson
by prompt action prevented a serious
accident, but as it was a portion of the
upper works of the Dalles City was in
jured.' The blame rests With the officers
of the Thompson for lying crosswise of
the river, especially during so" heavy a
fog. The Dalles pity made ,her trip as

he is one of the very best local writers
we ever met.

GAMBLING IN EUROPE.
Tbe Met Profits Estimated to Exceed
000,000 Francs a Year.
Most persons associate all mention
of gambling in Europe with Monte
Carlo. Since a great gambling' syndi
cate has been trying to get a hold in
the little neutralized Duchy of Luxembourg-,
however, an interesting list
of continental .casinos and their win
nings has been published by tJie -Ger
man newspapers. This list, says the
NewYorkSun,is intended to show that
the 'continent has already too many
gambling : hells and that the grand
duke of Luxembourg should persist in
declining the syndicate's offer , to pay
most of the government's expenses in
exchange for the privilege of operating
their roulette wheels in the shadow of
his throne. "
Here is the - list: . Dunkirk -casino,
