MR. STEVENS' OPINIONS.
A gentleman named Stevens, the in
ventor of the roller process for making
'flour, was in the city from Monday noon
until midnight. There is no particular
significance to this statement, other
than a wish to use him as an illustra
tion of the circumscribed area in which
a man's ideas may ebb and flow and be
self-satisfactory. , Mr. Stevens is a
wealthy man, having sold his patents,
and is now traveling over the country,
partly to see the scenery, and partly in
search of audiences that will absorb his
ideas and not talk back. Mr. Stevens
is a gold bug, rabid. He talked to a
small crowd at the Umatilla House in
the evening, making more rash asser
tions in five minutes than the craziest
silverite could invent in a century.
Mr. Stevens etated that in the East
the silver sentiment represented but 5
per cent of the voters, while the gold
bugs represented 95 per cent of the vot
ing population. He stated that before
the present administration was chosen
.$12,000,000 had been subscribed for
building factories on Fox river, Wiscon-
. sin, Mr. Stevens' home, tut that the
scheme was abandoned, and now Fox
river flows along unvexed by $12,000,000
worth of dams, mills and machinery
down to Oshkosb. "Why," said Mr.
Stevens, "Fox river has a fall of eighty
five feet in thirty-three miles, and is
larger than your river here." These are
but samples of some , of Mr. Stevens'
statements, and after listening to him
for a few moments, we no longer doubt
ed his first statement that he was an
inventor, only he has not retired from
Mr. Stevens probably repeats what be
believes concerning the proportion of
silver and gold advocates as be has seen
them. He forms bis conclusions from
the opinions of those he comes in con
tact with, and as that classjs his own,
wealthy people, their beliefs would
probably be in the proportion'etated
The trouble with Mr. Stevens' rating is
that he only meets a class representing
say one per cent of the voting popula
tion. Ninety-five per cent of that one
per cent are gold bugs; but of the 99
per cent that Mr. Stevens did not meet
the percentage does not run thrt way
but rather directly opposite.
Free silver is the issue for the next
campaign, and we lose our guees if it
does not win, as the sports say, "hands
down." It will be as the Columbia to
, Fox . river, Wisconeon, even though Mr.
Stevens' ideas of that creek are some
LIKE A MUSHROOM.
The Colfax people have been wanting
an opera bouse for some time, and now
they have one. A big pile of brick lum
ber and other building material piled at
a street corner had awakened comment
but no one knew what was to be done
wuh it. Last Wednesday evening
Beventy-hve men were brought from
Spokane, and armed with trowels and
hods repaired to the aforesaid corner
and by daylight the outside ' walls were
up, the scaffolding removed, and the
men gone. Thursday morning the
place was filled with carpenters, paint
ers, decoraters, etc.; and at 10 o'clock a
bill poster came along and put up a bill
saying that the Colfax Dramatic Com
pany would present the drama "Hick'ry
Farm at the Colfax Opera House."
That was the first intimation the people
bad as to what the. building was intend
ed for. - :
It seems tous that if the United
States supreme court ' will carry its de
cfeiori on the income tax cases to its
legitimate conclusion, it will be found
that it is unconstitutional to collect or
' levy any tax at all. From the verv na
ture of things any tax levied by any
power, state, county or city, ia'a tax
upon incomes. A tariff tax on sugar of
one cent per pound is a tax on the in
come of the consumer of one cent for
every pound of sugar used by him or hi
family, and if he is a farmer, and his in
come in from lands, why is it not a neon
stitutional to make the tariff tax appli
cable to him? Why is it riot unconsti
tutional to levy a tax on whiskey .-r
tobacco, since in both cases the incomes
of the business are incomes arising from
the products of' the lands. If it is true
as the supreme court Bays it is, that our
constitution prohibits the taxing of
those who have incomes, then the more
suddenly the constitution is amended
It seems probable that the income tax
decision will be Bet aside to the extent ot
giving the cases a new hearing with a
fall bench. Justice J.irkson is rapidly
recovering and it is said the motion for a
rehearing will be heard and argued, May
6th, at which tirce Justice Jackson will
While it is probably true that "Steve"
Elkins is not an ideal senator, it is true
that he is visiting Oregon in the capacity
of a private citizen. The Oregonian's
insult was therefore gratuitous, and
Victor is improving right along.
Mr. Gordon has enlarged his store
building and fitted up a nice postoffice
with a cabinet of seventy-eight boxes
This will give each regular patron of the
office a box. The unloading and placing
of a 1200 pound safe, seems to say that
Mr. Gordan is at Victor to stay, and
that he means business.'
The young grain is growing nicely.
Juniper Flat is destined to be the best
part of Wasco county. There is no
other part of the country which yields
more grain to the acre. The Flat is
about twelve miles square. It would be
difficult to find in this entire body of
land, a quarter section having less than
100 acres of the best quality of farm
land. X. X. X.
"The Criminal Crowding of Public
Schools" and "Crowded Schools as Pro
moters of Disease" are two subjects of
pressing importance that will be -taken
up in The Forum tor May. Professor J
H. Penniman,. of Philadelphia, by a
study of school reports themselves of
many of our principal cities, shows what
lamentable lack of sufficient and whole
some buildings there are how, indeed,
much of the educational work in Boston
and New York and many other cities is
worse than wasted. Dr. H. D. Chapin,
of New York, lays down the conditions
that should govern the healthful build-
ng and arrangement of echoolrooms.
