THE MAIN ISSUE.
All declarations t,o the contrary, the
tariff, in the minds of most people, will
be the issue in the coming campaign.
When the Republican party suffered de
feat three years ago it did eo because a
majority of the people, especially the
ignorant voters in the large cities, had
been misled regarding the operation of
the McKinley law and were won over to
the . delusion that free trade meant
cheap goods and high wages. At that
time the Republican party decided to
stand upon the principle for which it
had suffered defeat and left its vindica
tion for succeeding years.
This vindication quickly and com
pletely came, . for before a year had
passed the country was plunged into a
panic that brought disaster to all parts
of the land. The prospect of free im
portation of goods from foreign coun
tries caused the manufacturers to close
down or reduce tbeir forces ; threw labor
out of employment ; caused securities to
dwindle, and brought ruin both to men
who had voted for the change and to
those who had voted against it.
These facts are uppermost in the
minds of the people, and it was reflec
lion upon'them that convinced thous
ands who had voted the Democratic
ticket in 1892 that they bad committed
a grave error, and this conviction led to
the overwhelming Republican victories
Bince that time.
There is one tissue that has been set
tied for this generation, and that is the
tariff. The country is eager for a
chance to show its penitence and bring
about a restoration of a protective pol
icy. For the Republican party to place
any other issue foremost would be to
trifle with the confidence of the people
and subject the party to righteous
The majority of Republicans are
against the free coinage of silver, but
every person in the party, and many
who are not, believe strongly in a pro
tective tariff. This latter must be the
rock upon which rests our faith. The
Republican party can be trusted to han
dle the coinage question when once it is
in power, and the way toJget that power
is to go before the people with the tariff
issue in the foreground.
TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLAR
Senator Mitchell has proven that
when he starts in to do a thing he gen
erally accomplishes it. The passing of
the bill making $20,000 available for
immediate work at the locks is just the
news that the people of Eastern Oregon
wished to hear. Whoever deserves the
credit for this success will receive it in
good measure when the circumstances
attending its passage are made known.
In the meantime we will await the ac
tion of the house of representatives with
Mr. Ellis has an opportunity to dis
play his worth to the people of the sec
ond district. His success in having
this measure passed would be a neat
recommendation for him to carry into
the nominating convention.
Thb Chboniclb has long believed that
our delegation in congress, including ex
Senator Dolph, has at all times made
every endeavor to hasten the opening of
the locks. Our opinion is all the more
confirmed. The men whom we distrust
are the government engineers and the
contractors. Our faith in them is at a
low ebb. In the interest of a suffering
people it is to be hoped that if this
money is secured from congress it will
be so distributed that the purposes for
which it was appropriated may be
For the efforts that have been made
in the senate we are grateful, and trust
that in other respects the future will not
be a repetition of the past.
The primaries which will be held in
the city and county tomorrow should be
attended by every Republican voter,
The selection of worthy men for dele
gates to the county convention is of par
amount importance. The political bat
tle, which begins tomorrow, does not
end until November, and a good start is
often half the race. Let no one stay
away from the polls with the consoling
reflection thai there will be plenty of
others to vote. The effect of a large vote
at the primaries will be two-fold First,
better men will be apt to be chosen del
egates, and Becond, the reflex action
upon the rank and file of the party will
be to awaken any slumbering enthusi
asm. The polls open in the city at 12
noon and close at 7. During that time
every Republican voter in Bigelow,
Trevitt, West Dalles and East Dalles
precincts should cast a vote for county
A .Distinction With a Difference.
The Dalles, March 20, 1896,
To the Editoe:
I am sorry at being compelled to ask
you to correct that part of your report of
my lecture on A. P. A. ism that makes
me claim that half of Washington's army
were Catholics. What I actually said
was that half were Irishmen. Your re
port of the celebrated Father Corby's
announcement to the Irish brigade be
fore the battle of Gettysburg is stil
more unhappy. Instead of representing
the priest aB dramatically pronouncing
absolution "to all who fell fighting on
the battle field" and with the next
breath taking it all back in the case of
those might desert, I said that Father
Corby, "after granting absolution" in
what manner or by what words I did
not pretend to sav, because I did not
know "addressed the brigade in these
words: 'Soldiers, the Catholic church
refuses Christian burial to any man who
turns his back upon the flag.' " These
corrections may seem trifling, but it is
often only a 6hort step from the eubMrne
to the ridiculous.
