UNITED WE STAND.
Oregon's senators are divided in their
jews upon the financial question, bat
no difference exists when it comes to
opinions about the tariff. Mitchell,
with his free silver leanings, and Mc
Bride, with his adherence to a sound
money system, are a unit in perceiving
-what is needed to bring a return of pros
perity to the people of Oregon. Recent
statements by both these gentlemen are
worthy of re-production, since they give
in succinct form some potent truths. In
a leading Eastern journal Mr. McBride
is quoted as Eaying :
The large amounts of capital formerly
employed in manufacturing and other
industries are eeekmg investments, and
holders thereof find no field so inviting
as that of loans to the national govern
ment on its bonds. The failure of the
present tariff to provide sufficient reve
nue for current expenses of the govern
ment affoids the opportunity, and this
condition of thingB can be remedied only
by a return to a tariff system that will
protect American industries from for
eign competition, and also provide suffi
cient revenue for the governmental ex
penses. Under such a system capital
will no longer seek bonds at low rate for
investment, but will find ample demand
and larger returns in the manufacturing
and in domestic trade.
The same paper quotes Mitchell thus:
The damaging effects of this free-wool
policy have been exemplified in a multi
form manner. It has damaged flock
masters, who, having become discour
aged by reason of the policy, have driven
their sheep to the slaughterhouse and
abandoned the business, thus diminish
ing rapidly and vastly the number of
cheep and the amount of wool produced,
and, as a further result, throwing out of
employment hundreds of thousands of
men, herders, ehearers and others con
nected with the industry.
While it is unquestionably true that a
majority of the people of Oregon thiuk
as McBride does regarding silver, yet
there are those who have not yet been
led out of the ways of false thinking and
etill cling to the belief that if the gov
ernment were to coin all the silver
.brought to it the parity between the
metala could remain unchanged. The
silver agitation has been to a great ex
tent caused by the depressing times
through which we are paseing. These
depressing times have been brought
about by the rejection of the protective
policy provided by the McKinley law
and the substitution of an un-American
free trade system. Had it not been for
this catastrophe, the silver question
would never have occupied public' atten
tion to the degree it does, and when
again the government is in the hands of
its friends, enjoying the beneficent work
ings ef a protective policy, the coinage
question will be relegated to an inferior
position in the public mind.
If the Republican platform be une
quivocal towards silver, rejecting any
words that might lead to a belief that
the party favored any standard but gold,
and then push protection to the front,
making it the issue of the campaign,
there need be no nominations made by
THE GOLDEN DAYS.
The days of '49 are being reproduced
again in Alaska. Every steamer that
leaves for Juneau, Sitka, or Cook's In
let is crowded with passengers and load
ed with freight, till, as in the case of one
which sailed Saturday, the craft was
sunk below the guards. The times and
epirit of California forty-five years ago
will be felt rgain, and the hopes that
filled the hearts of fortune-seekers then
remain to bolster the courage of the
Alaska has long been looked upon as
the last country to be explored. Civili
zation has reached the shores of the
Pacific, and the pioneer is pushed north
ward, where the conditions of life are
harder. The old scenes will be re-enacted.
The hopes, disappointments, the
successes and failures will come again.
The fortunate will rejoice, the luckless
curse their fate and search on, hoping
against hope that a lucky find may some
time be theirs.
The rush to Alaska is the last act in
the drama that begun with Marshall's
discovery of gold in 1849, and when this
lingering scene' is over the pioneer, who
through all the play, has been an inter
eating figure, will take his place in his
Baker county comes to the front
claiming $1,000,000 as the amonnt which
represents her gold output during the
past year. Wasco county is not a gold
producer, but if the amounts received
for wool, wheat, stock, fruit and lumber
were added together, the figures would
be very satisfactory. Through The
Dalles banks last summer $600,000
passed in payment for wool clips. The
amount will be much larger the coming
season and these figures make it plain
how deeply the people of this wool grow
ing section deplore a policy that takes a
tariff from wool and reduces the price
the growers receive more than half.
We venture the statement that the
Republican county conventions in Ore
gon will not be found declaring for free
silver as the Democratic conventions
have done. The place for such a heresy
is with the party that eupports the fal
lacy of free trade. One is as unreasona
ble as the other, and the Democratic
party can be safely trusted to champion
It is wholly fitting that at the close of a
conference between some manufacturers
who favor the free coinage of silver
without incernational agreement, and the
silver eenators who held up the tariff
bi 1 that the name of Don Cameron
should be suggested as the presidential
candidate fcr euch a combination. The
man is worthy of the cauee.
is SIMMONS LIVER REGULATOR don't
forget to take it. The Liver gets sluggish
during the Winter, just like all nature,
and the system becomes choked up by
the accumulated waste, which brings on
Malaria, Fever and Ague and Rheuma
tism. You want to wake up your Liver
now, but be sure you take SIMMONS
Liver regulator to do it. It also
regulates the Liver keeps it properly at
work, when your system will be free from
poison and the whole bodv invigorated.
You get THE BEST BLOOD when
your system is in Al condition, and that
will only be when the Liver is kept active.
Try a Liver Remedy once and note the
difference. But take only SIMMONS
Liver regulator it is Simmons

difference. Take it in powder or in liquid
already prepared, or make a tea of the
