TO WHOM. THANKS ARE DUE.
Mr. Ellis has taken the advice The
Chronicle preferred some time ago
and hurried through the house the
resolution making $20,000 immedi
ately available for work at the locks.
The resolution having passed both
houses makes this amount assured,
and nothing now remains but to
make proper application of the
To our delegation in congress who
have made this laudable effort to
make the- locks available for traffic,
the . thanks f a grateful people are
due. To Senator Mitchell for his
promptness in taking the initiative
in the matter, and to Mr. Ellis for
his supplementary efforts since in
the absence of knowledge to the con
trary, we are glad to give him a
good measure of credit the people
of Eastern Oregon express their ap
preciation. The members of the
delegation have dope all that has
been asked of them, and we are the
more certain in our conviction that
the interests of the people have been
uppermost thoughts in the minds
of these gentlemen.
We wish we could say as much for
the government engineers and the
contractors, but we cannot. We
cannot even give vent to any exu
berance of feeling over the action of
congress since it is by no means cer
tain that the money will be wisely
or justly applied. By all right and
reason neither the engineers nor con
tractors can expect the people to
have any confidence in their work or
promises, and none of their state
ments will be believed until proven
true by facts.
We would have been well pleased
had congress tacked' on to this reso
lution a provision that the work
should be done under charge of a
committee selected from such men
as the people trust. Such a commit
tee could then have as members nei
ther the Messrs. Da3 nor the govern
Let us hope the money will be so
applied that the early operation of
the locks will be realized ; but in no
wise let our vigilance be relaxed.
THE PUBLIC DEBT.
The present Democratic adminis
tration .will long be remembered for
its incompetency. Tn every phase
of government the party in power
has shown its utter incapacity to
handle the problems which have
been presented for solution. In its
foreign policy the present ad minis
tration has been wavering, un Amer
ican and inconsistent. In its finan
cial management it has - shown an
ignorance which amounts almost to
a crime, a fair illustration of which
is the bond sale just preceding the
last, when the Morgan syndicate was
allowed to make an exorbitant
But the severest arraignment of
the Democratic party is found in
the figures furnished by the treasury
department, and which show the
public debt at different time since
18Q5. On Oct. 31, 1865, the public
debt, without deducting funds in
the treasurj', amounted to $2,808,
549,437.55. The reports for 1871
state that the total decrease of the
public debt from March 1, 1869, to
December 1, 1871, was $227,211,
892.16. During the same period the
annual interest had . been reduced
$10,741,436.04. Im 1876 the debt,
including accrued interest, less bonds
issued to the Pacific railroad and
less cash in the treasury, was $2,099,
439,444.94, a reduction since 1865
From the '.time the war closed in
August, 1865, to the close of Ben
jam in Harrison's administration, a
period of twenty-eight j'ears, the
public debt was reduced at an an
nual average of $75,528,753, and in
addition thereto the pension fund
had been increased from about $16,
347,656 to $134,583,052. The total
interest bearing debt as given by
Secretary Foster, was on August 31,
1865, $2,381,530,294.96; on August
31, 1892, it was only $585,029,330.
According to these figures the inter
est bearing debt had been reduced
$1,796,500,964.96 duiing twenty
eight years under protection, al
though the pension law called for
from $130,000,000 to $134,000,000
This statement is one that can
bear verification. It is not an argu
ment for a theory ; it is a lamenta
ble condition that confronts us, and
one due to the mistake the American
people made in 1892, when they
overthrew the policy of protection
under which the country -had pros
pered for thirty j-ears.
