UNCLE SAM CONVALESCENT.
There is great similarity between
financial and political disorders and the
physical ills of life. In the case of both
much is wholly imaginary, and for both
the real and imaginary the world is very
apt to take patent medicines. The
street fakir appears and has no trouble
ia satisfying the people that they are
coffering from some disorder, and that
his wares are a 6ure cure, We swallow
the concoction in large doses quite as
often when there is no trouble as when
we are actually ill, and in the former
case the supposed diaease vanishes; in
the latter case it does no good, is dis
carded, and we finally return to a phy
Bician, the worse for the experiments.
Oar country has been a little out of
order; there was congestion in some
parts, torpidity of other functions, an
obstruction in the circulation, and the
combination threatened to produce ner
vous prostration. The patent medicine
man saw and appreciated the situation,
and being a philanthropist patent mea
icine men are concerned only for the
health of the world came to the front
with the cure. The owners of the great
eilver mines declared that free coinage
was the sure cure, and Harvey, the ad
vertiser, diognosed the case, confirmed
the eilver men, sold his advertisements
by the thousand, made himself famoue,
and, what is better, rich. Tne whole
country was interested, attracted and
temporarily convinced. But it is the
same old experience the patient is re
covering; not because of the dose, but
in spite of it, and what seemed a dis
ease, proves to be a slight disorder, re
suiting from the nervous shock received
when the government went into the
hands of democracv. We are recover
ing, regardless of the silver question
and though we are much poorer than
before tne change, whicli caused our
nervous trouble, we are not in need of
patent medicines. We can't make
money so fast, bat we can learn econ
omy and harden our muscles by greater
effort; and perhaps when we are again
under a better management when
rcpuuiii'jtii cuugrctjB mattes uur laws, uuu
a republican president executes them
we will be better off than though we had
not had this unpleasant experience of
becoming suddenly poor.
Certain it is that the patient is con
valeecent, and these patent medicine
chaps are losing trade. As eoon as the
congestion ia overcome and our func
tions are again in operation, we shall
rapidly recover, although it will require
another national election to put us en
tirely on our feet aesin.

A Note of Waning.
The address of Justice Brown, of the
United States supreme court, before the
Yale law school, has been widely cony
mented upon throughout the country
It is considered an able, scholarly effort
of a man who looks at things with
candid eve. He sounds this note of
warning upon the indifference of the
American people to public affairs.
"The activities of urban life are so in
tense, the pursuit of wealth or of pleas
ure so absorbing, as, upon the one hand,
to breed an indifference to public affairs,
while, upon the other, the expenditures
are so large, the value of the franchises
at the disposal of the cities so great, and
the opportunities for ilieit gain so mani
fold, thct the municipal legislators
whose standard of honesty is rarelv
higher than the average of those who
elect them, fall an easy prey to the de
signing and unscrupulous. Though
am unwilling to believe that corporations
are solely responsible for our municipal
misgovernment, the fact remains that
bribery and corruption are so universal
as to threaten the verv structure of
society. Universal suffrage, which,
was confidently snppoeed, would inure
to tne benefit of the poor man, is so
skillfully manipulated as to rivet bis
chains and secure to the rich man a pre
dominance in politics he has never en
joyed under a restricted system. Prob
ably in no country in the world is the
influence of wealth more potent than in
this, and in no period of our history has
it been more powerful than now."

When the contract for the completion
of the locks was let The Dalles cele
brated. We knew nothing of the con
tractors, and had experienced so many
disappointments in respect to the im
provements at the Cascades, that many
still doubted the promised hasteuing of
the work. But the contractors have
done as they said they were going to do,
push the work to a speedy completion.

a fortune out of the contract; but if
they do, we think tho people are still

FRUIT FOR LONDON.
California is very hopeful of finding a
market .for her fruit in London. We
wish she could, and for every particle of
it. One of the disadvantages Oregon
fruit-raisers have had to contend with
has been, and is, the overproduction in
California, making competition in the
interior states disastrous to our shippers.
When the Nicaragua canal is built, San
Francisco can land its fruit in London
within two weks, with no re-shipping.
When that can be done, Oregon shippers
will have no difficulty in finding a
