long time it will be needed. If we
wait for a ship railway, or any other
improvement by the national gov
ernment, we, of "this , generation, will
never be benefited bv the proposed
Improvement's. The Mohr company
is trifling and will never build a
portage.on the other side. The state
of Oregon made an unqualified suc
cess of its first experiment, and we
propose that the next legislature pro

APPRECIATION OF MONEY.
Much is written and said about
increase and decrease in the pur
chasing price of gold and silver. ' So
far as the coins are concerned there
is now no difference, and if the free
coinage of silver will restore the
market price of silver to the price of
1873, there will be no distinction Qin
the purchasing price of the bullion;
he who has to earn or buy a dollar
will have to struggle us hard then as
now. But -'more money will be
coined, and it will be less difficult to
get, because of its abundance."
This would be true if the person who
had it coined were by law compelled
to distribute it equally, according to
population, over the country, to be
gathered up by the people without
any exchange therefor a kind of a
scramble game, as rich men ate wont
to do with street urchins in large
cities by means of pennies.
But what are really the best indi
cations of the appreciation or depre
ciation of our money values? One
of the best is the rates of interest.
In 1860 the United States was pay
ing an average rate of 105 per cent
upon its debt; in 1873 the usual rate
on loans in Oregon was 12 to 15 per
cent, and many loans were made at
24 per cent. In 1895 Dalles City
borrowed nearly $70,000 to pay off
its floating debt and had no trouble
in getting the money at less than 6
per cent. Today there would be no
trouble in securing by private loans
$25,000 in The Dalles at 8 per cent
if the ould-be borrower could satisfy
the lender that he would repay the
money when due in the same kind
of money - he borrowed. No one
thinks of asking over ten per cent of
a responsible borrower. The United
States secures all the gold it desires
at 3 per cent. The rate of interest
has not increased, but the distrust in
the ability or willingness to repay in
the kind of money loaned has in
In 1878 the price of wheat was
$1.34 per bushel and of silver $1,156
per fine ounce; in 1873 wheat was
worth $1.31 and silvei $1.29. In
other words, wheat was higher by
three cents per bushel five years after
the "crime than at the time it was
committed, and silver was 13.4 cents
lower. The period 1878-1883 was
the period, of greatest relative ex
port from the united btates, we
having exported 64.9 per cent of the
whole output of the wheat-producing
countries. In other words, when
we were producing a very large per
cent of the wheat the total output
being much smaller than any year
since we were paid the highest
price. A close examination of the
statistics demonstrates what Bryan
will not concede that supply and
demand fix prices.
The state portage road is a thing
of the past. It cost the state $60,-
000, but it saved the people of Ore
gon and Washington many times
that amount. Without it The Dalles
would not have been able to continue
its prosperous business, and the farm
ers and wool raisers would have been
poorer by many times the cost of the
road. Now that it has ceased to
exist, what is the matter with try in
the experiment again; this time by
a road from The Dalles to Celilo?
It would cost a" little more, but it

LATIN AND GERMAN TAUGHT.
J. S. SCHENK,

Cannot 70,000,000 of people have
a financial system of their own ? , or
must they be dictated to by Europe?
Of course we can haye our own fin
ancial system and our own markets.
China had that independence for
thousands of years; she built a wall
to make that independence absolute,
and . neither Lombard nor Wall
streets had a word to say concerning
her finances, and she has free silver.
Let us stop Li Hung Chang and
have him teach us how the thing was
"We are much pleased to note that
the 1 lmes-fllountaineer has gone
over to the side of "the people." It
was on the side of the fmoney
lender and plutocrat" for some time
after the June election; after the
November election we trust it will
return to the habit of expressing its
real convictions. -
The undersigned desires to orfraiiiz a class in
German. Every American -citizen who can af
ford both time and expense ought to be master
ol at least two languages. The German language
ha- many advantages over modern languages on
account of ber profound literature in all branch
es, of ancient and modern science produced in
her world-renowned universities. Those who
would drink from fhese inexhaustible and yet
unadultei ated fountains of knowledge, must
muster the language which contains the key to
them. The undersigned will organize a class in
German, and will begin with actual work on the
iirst day of September. The ciasri will meet two
or three times a week in the evening or when
most convenient to the npils. Rapid progress
guaranteed to those who will get down to earn
est labor. Alt who desire to participate in this
woik will please announce their intention to
the undertigned at on early date, as the class
will be limited to a cerUiin number. Charges
will be vtry reasonable.
The undersigned will also organize a class in
Latin. There are so many reasons why those
who desire f advance their knowledge beyond a
common school education should take at least a
conrse in Latin, that probably everybody is fa
miliar with at least some of them. I mil not
take space here to speak of the beauties of the
Latin language nor of the many advantages in
life possessed by those who have mastered it. I
will here onlv announce my intention to organ
ize a c ass in Latin. Rapid progress guaranteed
to those who will work hard.- Charges very rea
sonable. All desiring instruction in Latin are
kindly requested to announce their intention to
the undersigned before September, if possible.

fully yours. L. REY,
