Jilt. CLEVELAND'S BITTER PILL,
Here is the way the Spokesman
Review speaks of President Cleveland
and the prospective revenue bill he may
be called upon to sign :
The republican congress is going to
pass a revenue bill up to President
Cleveland. Will lie sign it? After call
ing for help in his financial dilemma,
and the republicans having tossed him
a life buoy, will 1m accept the tender, or
will he go on clamoring for another kind
of help, knowing, as tie must know, that
the republican party is not going to fol
low the dictation of one who is chiefly
responsible for the prevailing distress?
The help which, the republicans will
extend to Mr. uievelana will carry a
restoration of the duty on wool. Now,
Mr. Cleveland has been especially severe
in his denunciation of the wool tariff.
He has sent message after message to
congress expatiating on the delights of
free wool, and denouncing the protec
tion which aims at higher priced cloth
ing. . It will be bard for him to swallow
so many meesages of the past, but his
troubles are great, and desperate men
cannot Btick too close to pride.
; Mr. Cleveland is not to oe allowed to
dictate the -legislation to be passed by
the republican congress. The republi
cans propose to do their duty and give
bim a bill that will ease the strain and
restore the solvency of the treasury
The president must take it, or accept
the consequences. It will be that or
If Mr. Cleveland should conclude not
to veto' the proposed revenue bill, he
would have democratic precedent to jus
tify his action. The tariff bill of 1842
was signed by- President Tyler, and the
Morril tariff bill received the signature
of President Buchanan. Then, as now,
the administration was confronted by a
condition, and not a theory, and the ex
isting condition is sufficiently trouble
eome to give Mr. Cleveland deep con
cern. His position is not enviable, but
he, has made it.
GENERAL MILES' VIEWS.
The talk in this country about war be
tween America and England over the
Venezuela question is harine a most
salutatory effect in calling attention to
tne condition of the military and naval
forces of the United States. The
people of the United States statesmen
and common lolk have been so en
grossed with matters of business and
politics that the military progress of the
country has fallen far behind the ad
vance in other lines of national great
uess. Now, when there is a possibility
of war, attention is directed to our army,
navy and coast defenses. Not only in
unofficial, but also in official circles, is
the deficiency of our means of defense
and aggression openly commented upon,
as the following statement from General
Miles will thow :
"I have returned from an inspection
tour of the southern coasts and, like
those of other sections of the country, I
find them in an entirely defenseless con
dition. If war should break out at
present all we have in the south, or in
fact, anywhere else, with a few excep
tions, will be a lot of obsolete guns on
rotten carriages, which would fall over
before they could be of any service.
The country is in a deplorable condi
tion for defense. There ate only three
modern guns in position in this country.
Two of these are at the entrance to New
York harbor and the third at San Fran
cisco. If congress will make a liberal
appropriation therefor the coast could
be put in condition for, defense in about
two years. Tho work would cost about
480,000,000. It would take-in the
neighborhood of a year to manufacture
the tools necessary for the construction
of the guns, and another year for the
manufacture of the guns themselves."

Antelope Herald : Stockmen inform
us that . grass on the range has been
growing considerably since the snow
and rain have set, in. This is a much
better condition of affairs than was ex

will be experienced this year. Nearly
all the sheepmen in this section, how
ever, are supplied with enough hay to
feed their bands for sixty or seventy
days, and it -is hardly probable this
amount of feeding will be required.

A meeting of the school board was held
this morning at which were present
Directors Doane, Kinersly and Adams.
The meeting was called especially to
consider the resignation of Miss Elliot,
which had been handed in. The resig
nation was accepted and Miss Cassie M
Cheese, of The Dalles, elected to fill the
vacancy. It is understood Miss Elliot
has accepted a position in the public
schools of Boise City, and as it is a bet
ter one than the one she held here, the
board granted her request to leave,
Miss Elliot is from the East, and has
been teaching in The Dalles schools
since last September. Miss Cheese has
taught in this country for several years,
having been engaged in teaching the
school near Floyds, on 3-Mile, for some
A. E. Kilpatrick, of Fillmore, Cal.,
had the misfortune to have bis leg
caught between a cart and a stone and
badly bruised. Ordinarily he would
have been laid up for two or three weeks,
but says: "After using one bottle of
Chamberlain's Pain Balm I began to
feel better, and in three days was entire
ly well. The peculiar soothing qualities
which Chamberlain's Pain Balm po
sesses I have never noticed in any other
liniment. I take pleasure in recom
mending it." This liniment is also of
great value for rheumatism and lame
back. For sale by Blakeley & Houghton,
The services at St. Pauls church yes
terday were largely attended, there being
many visitors present from the other
city churches. The choir was augment
ed by a number of singers from other
choirs and the singing was exceptionally
fine, the solo by Mrs. Price being much
appreciated. Rev. Mr. Goes preached
an. excellent sermon, after which the
Holy Communion was administered.
Mr. Goss stated that he was sorry no
rector had been secured for the church
in The Dalles but thought that in a very
short time one would be. Mr. Goss re
turned to his home near Milton last
evening. The members of the St. Paul's
congregation feel very grateful to him
for his kindness in coming to conduct
the Christmas services tor them.
