started in The Dalles. The present
year baa been looked forward to as the
one when this city should undergo a
renaissance a new birth or rather
have its life renewed. Such a. condition
cannot, attain fall satisfaction unless
some industries be started that will eup
port a pay-roll, and by giving employ
ment to labor, stimulate business for,
our merchants. The question of induc
ing manufacturers to come to The Dalles
should be agitated with all possible
The sixteen Republican senators who
put their names to a paper held by Mr.
Wharton Barker probably realized how
little senee they bad when they saw the
insolent comments with which he pub
lished it. If tbey had meant all that he
said they meant, the Republican party
would promptly proceed to govern the
country without them. But it is not
-the first time he bus imagined himself
the center on which the universe re
volves. If the sixteen Republican sen
ators mean just what they say, tbey will
administer to Mr. Barker as vigorous a
moral kickinz as tbey can, and take
are that he never gts a chance to mis
represent them again. Stripped of ver
biage, what they say is that they coneci
entiously believe that silver ought to be
coined without restraint, and that all in
duetries ought to be protected. If there
is a grain of honesty in the latter state
ment, they can not refuse protection to
industries which they conscientiously
believe necessary, because they are not
yet able to get free coinage, which they
also believe necessary. Whether Mr
Barker has falsely stated their inten
tions, it is in order for them to explain,
and at the same time to explain whether
-they correctly stated their own beliefs in
the paper they signed.
Mr. Barker says these senators mean
-that there shall be no Republican party
and no protection of home industries
unless the free coinage people have their
way. In expressive vernacular, he has
"bitten off more than he can chew." It
is not committed to him by the infinite
powers to say whether there shall be a
Republican party or not. Neither is it
in the power of the sixteen senators to
say whether the Republican party shall
govern the country. They may or may
not be able to determine whether
this year any protective tariff shall be
enacted. It they like to take that re
sponsibility as assistant Democrats, that
is their affair, thoagh possibly also the
affair of their constituents. But they
have not a title deed to the country as
yet, nor has Mr. Barker. States east of
the Iowa and Nebraska line wil) elect a
majority of the presidential electors next
fall, and will have, in union with other
states, a settled and abiding majority in
the senate, as they have in the house.
The sixteen senators represent sixteen
electoral votes in Colorado, Utah, Mon
tana, Idaho and Wyoming, with 897,352
population, and half represent, though
not wholly, the states of California,
South Dakota, Oregon and North Da
kota, whose senators are divided in
opinion. They represent absolutely
nothing in Pennsylvania, for Mr. Bar
ker ie a cipher and stands before Mr.
Cameron, who is going out. They rep
resent in North Carolina a temporary
fusion, but no party. If the Republican
party is in fact invited by these senators
to get along withsut them, they will
take care not to present themselves nor
to send their friends to its national con
vention. Those who desire to enter that
body or to be respected there will take
early occasion, as some have done al
ready, to make it plain that in declaring
conviction for free coinage and for pro
tection they did not intend to be under
stood as ready to vote for gold monomet
allism unless they could get protection,
or for free trade unless they could get
free coinage. Presumably Mr. Barker is
responsible for any lack of good sense or
taste in the paper they have signed, but
tht paper, at least, does not undertake
to threaten or bully anybody, nor does
it impudently assert, as Mr. Barker
does, that there shall be no Republican
party unless he can have his own way.
The belief of the sixteen senators
would have had several thousand times
as much weight if not brought before the
country in the niOBt indecent and offen
eive form conceivable. Not one of these
gentlemen would so far discredit him
self as to inform a Republican conven
tion that it "must" obey the dictates of
five or ten of the smallest and youngest
states, or "there should be no Republi
can party." The company they have
chosen is extremely unbecoming to these
senators, and will assuredly make it
harder for them to Euetain themselves
at borne. For there are in all the states
they represent many men of sense and
of large influence, who feel humiliated
when they are reprebented as attempt
ing to browbeat and bully the people of
the United States. Tribune.
Politics in Multnomah county this
year promises to be the sole occupation
of its citizens. Already the clouds are
gathering which portend a storm that
will stir things from bottom to top. Jim
Lot an, once the idol of a fawning fac
tion, and later a defendant in the United
States court on the charge of smuggling,
is preparing to take a hand and do what
he can to discomfit his old rival, Simon.
In the fight of the inns and outs all
questions of public good will probably
be forgotten. Portland is suffering from
an attack of too much politics.
