NEVER AN ISSUE.
The. Tomahawk thinks we blundered
fearfully when we stated recently that
the populist platform alone demanded
free Bilver in the June elections of this
etate, and advieea ua to dig up the dem
ocratic platform and see if that does not
also mean free silver. We have not a
copy of that document available, and it
ia hardly worth digging up; but aa our
memory eervea us, the democratic plat
form did not declare for free eilyer, but
undertook to make' a straddle. What
ever the franiere of the platform may
have meant, the plank concerning silver
was so worded aa to mean nothing, yet
to allow of almost any construction.
The intention of that plank waa to catch
: It may be possible that a majority of
the voters of Oregon are in favor of free
Bilver; we don't pretend to assert either
way on that proposition ; but we do say
that the issue has never been before the
people, except aa presented by the pop
ulists, and that, therefore, no man can
truthfully assert that Oregon ia in favor
of free silver.
BEAMS AND MOTES.
The Baker City highwaymen are
thought to be the same men who robbed
the Haines store. A census ought to be
taken of The Dalles young bloods. Per
hars some more of them have turned
Our contemporary is disposed to be
sarcastic at our expense. Yet if that"
great paper would turn the light of its
intelligence upon Multnomah county
affairs we believe it would change its
tune. It might possibly be well to take
a census of the bunco steerers of Port
land, or among the executive officers of
the county. How about that lawsuit
beaten on a technicality by which Mult
nomah county loses a quarter of a million
dollars? That sizes up pretty well with
The Dalles robbery, and the fellowa that
got the money are not giving it up,
In one county of Nebraska (the census
comprieing nine of its thirteen iown
ehips) crops have been so damaged by
frosts and drought that only 110 bushels
of corn, 3.020 bushels of wheat and 607
bushels ot oats and rye have been raised
by 256 families, consisting of 1,425 per
sons, which is less than half a bushel of
corn, not twelve bushels, of wheat, and
about two bushels of rye and. one of
potatoes per family. The judge of the
couDty court in reporting the above as a
result of the investigations of supervis
ors, says, "the county as a county is a
howling waste, and that this desolation
' follows on the heels' of the drought of
1893, unlesB help comes, starvation is
right before hundreds of our people."
Why starve to death in the drouth-
' stricken and blizzard-ridden East when
millions of acres of the best land in the
world lies vacant yet in Eastern Oregon
awaiting settlement? Nowhere on
earth can a living be made so easy and
with aa little effort as in this portion of
Eastern Oregon, where crops never
fail. Condon Globe.
Brother Ireland telle us that we might
as well -admit that the result of the
election is what sent the price of wheat
up. We would cheerfully admit that
proposition if it were true. The price of
our wheat is fixed in Liverpool and
Europe, and will continue to he bo fixed
as long as we have a surplus to ship.
Politics have but little to do with the
price of thoEe commodities we export.
The time is coming when our increased
population will consume all of our bread
products, and whtn this is done the
- price will be fixed at home on the basis
of the cost of wheat laid down here from
foreign countries, and then ariff laws
may cut some figure in prices.
, In Chicago the thieves have an or
ganization known as the "Thieves Mu
tual Benefit Association", which is
regularly officered having a president,
secretary, treasurer, etc." The question
arises as to how the trersurer is managed
as it seems out of the' usual order of
things' to trust a known thief with the
funds. No one is eligible to' member
ship except thoEe who have been con
victed of a crime.
The Japanese are said to have com
mitted some yery cruel acts upon their
Chinese prisoners. Well if they have no
one need to complain. In dealing with
a lot of savages who spare nothing a
taste of the same medicine is sometimes
beneficial. The Chinese were in the
habit of beheading the corpses of the
JaDanese soldiers, and carrying the
heads around strung on a rope.
