That would take too long, and would en
counter factional opposition. All par
ties ought to 8gree upon the legislation
indicated as" a war measure. At the
very least, the president ought to be wil
ling to sign it, as a means of carrying
out the nolicv of his meeeaee. This will
stop the flood of imports which is press
ing gold out of tho country, and so con

At the request of several people we
publish the following editorial, which
appeared in Saturday's Oregonian. It
is about the best of the many articles
written on the present situation, which
has come to our notice, and ehould be
read by all persons interested in this
country and its future. The suggestions
which are mal are capable of being
carried out, and ilie soojer they are put
into effect the better it will be for the
people of the United States. The Ore
gonian voices the sentiment of fair
winded people when it says:
Probably actual armed conflict be
tween England and the United States
will be averted for the present by the
prudence of both governments. The
United States is not prepared to fight
anybody, and Great Britain is euro to
have her hands full in the East before
next summer. But the diplomatic clash
over Venezuela reveals a clash of poli
cies and purposes long understood by
thoughtful persona in the United States,
and often pointed out by The Oregonian,
and now clearly recognized by Sir
Charles Dilke, the cleverest British dip
lomat. This contaii s the potency of
armed conflict, whiclr-may be delayed,
but cannot bo prevented. Its arrival is
as certain aa the precession ot the equi
noxes. Meanwhile this coming clash of arms
will be anticipated by a clash of business
interests. There will be a war of
bourses and tariffs before there is con
flict ot fleets and armies. There will be
a financial and commercial war as soon j
as tho forces can be mobilized, and this
is quicker work than the organization of
armies or tho preparation of naval ex
pedients. The first blow in this war has j
been etruck already by the concerted
movement of great London financiers, in j
close touch with tho government, to
jlump large quantities of American se
curities upon , the New York market.
This already has had the expected effect
in ' causing two or tliree failures and
bringing about a general feeling of inse
curity and alarm in financial circles, ad
ding to the ever-present danger of shock
to the national credit by new drain of
This emergency must be met, like an
emergency of real war, with judgment
and courage. The condition of our
finances constitutes aa great a state of
unfitness for war as the weakness of our
army and navy. We cannot hope to
meet the strain of even the preliminary
conflict of stock markets without taking
some measures to amend our currency
system. The president pointed out the
way in his message to congress, and be
enforces it in a supplementary commu
nication, urging that body not to take
even a holiday recess until it shall have
given assurance -that the national credit
will be protected and the stability of
money values assured by making pro
vision for building up the gold reserve
and retiring the excess of government
If the congress, which has 6hown so
much patriotic enthusiasm, has judg
ment and boldness as well, it will lose
no time in taking the step the president
recommends. That is the first defensive
measure in the war of business interests
and relations which has been precipi
tated by the clash of diplomatic policies
over Venezuela. Immediately after, or
simultaneously, congress should take
the first offensive step by declaring a
tariff war -upon Great Britain. We must
. strike at her weakest point, as she
has struck at ours. She has etruck
at our sensitive financial system
We must strike back at her sensitive
trade. She is sending back our securi
ties. We must send back her goods.
She lias wrought a panic in New York.
We must cause grass to grow in the
streets of Bradford and carry ruin to the
stock exchanges of Manchester and Glas
gow. This way we shall hold our own
in the war of business interests.
Congress should prepare a tariff bill
immediately after the holiday recess,
. framed with two main objects in view
to exclude British goods, and to shut
British ships out of our carrying trade.
This can be done without any infringe
ment of the "most favored nation'
clause of treaties, and without giving
any just ground for. dip'o natic com plaint.
. Heavy duties should be imposed upon
all manufacturers of wool, cotton aid
iron, and the old" discriminating duties
ehould be restored upon all imports in
foreign ships. This ehould be done
The mere suggestion of war between
the United States and England serves to
awaken the slumbering patriotism of
the people. Everywhere there is an
outburst of enthusiasm, which 6hows
the mighty reserve force this country
has. Did the United States possess
ships and military equipment in pro
portion to the glowing patriotism of its
citizens, war with England would be
thing of short duration. A war scare
does good in stirring up the people to
greater interest in their country's wel
The peaceful slumber of our citizens
was awakened last night by the rattling
of windows and dashing of the raindrops
against the glass. It didn't take long to
tell that a genuine chinook had struck
the town. The wind from the west has
been blowinj? all day - with alternate
bursts of sunshine and showers of rain
The streets are sloppy and the sidewalks
covered with pools of water. From what
can be learned the chinook is general
all over this section of country and the
enow is rapidly disappearing. The
weather bureau predicts colder weather
to come tomorrow. Coasting and sleigh
ing is spoiled for the time, but the win
ter is young yet and there will be plenty
of snow to make the roads good for

The dance given Saturday evening by
the Gesang Verem Hormonie was in
every way a complete success. A merry
crowd of people assembled at the ' Bald
win opera house and whiled away the
hours to .the strains of music. The
managers of the affair were unstinted in
their efforts to make every one of their
guests enjoy the evening, and the re'
suits were entirely successful. The floor
was in good condition and the repeated
encores asked for by the dancers ehowed
that the music was much appreciated
The dances given by the Gesang Verein
have al trays been enjoyable events, and
the one of Saturday evening followed in
line with its predecessors.
