STIRRING THE DUST.
A correspondent of the Orgonian
suggests that the juries sent up this
way to examine into the values of
real estate be locked up in a box-car
to protect them from the intrusive
hospitality of us Dalles people. , Ac
cording to this correspondent, our
hospitality is so excessive that an
outsider would infer that juries are
met at the county line with a brass
band and a carload of wine, and thai
their minds were utterly befuddled
with' the warmth of our greeting and
the bead of our wine. We are glad
indeed that the fame of our geniality
has gone abroad in the land, and will

seriously we doubt this correspond
ent's, insinuations having even
shadow of truth for a foundation.
The jury slept and ate at the Uma
tillaj House while here, and if there
"were any wining or dining going on
other than the meals they got at the
hotel table, no one here is aware of
it. Besides they were in charge of
the marshal, and the district attor
ney was along with them. If Mar
shal Humphreys made a night of it
here, or poured, or allowed to be

District Attorney Murphy ought to

As a matter of fact the whole thing
looks as though a whole lot of dust
was being stirred up in the vicinity
of Judge Bellinger's court to hide
from view, wfiat, to call it by a mild
name, was a very arbitrary proceed

would thus anticipate the tariff bill,
likely to be passed in special session
next May, and would lay in stock
enough to run their mllls.for some

congressmen, as well as the manu
facturers, that wool ffill be the first
to have a tariff put on it.

The test of battleship steel at
Newport News wa8 made Monday
and it was found wofu'ly defective
Whether this is another job similar
to that of Carnegie some years ago,
the' dispatches do not state; but
whether due to fraud or inability to
make , better steel, the result is the
same. The government pays the
highest price for its steel, and should
have the best, and any contractor
furnishing materials he knows not to
be first-class should be punished
,The first tide of indignation at the
cruel murder of Maceo is passed, and
all danger of intervention, or all
hopes of it, as you may view it,
passed away with it. These be in
deed degenerate days, days when
human sympathy is measured by
words and assistance given by ad
vice. Time was, in the days of our
forefathers, when Spain and Spain's
murderous soldiery would have
. been hurled off the hemisphere bv
indignant freemen, but the times1
have changed. Then the American
acted from a sense of right; now he
measures his acts in the pint cup of
expedienc'. There were men in
those days. Men in the halls of con
gress whose minds Would have risen
superior to -the lawsof trade and the
values of markets. Men who would
have done more than pass idle reso
lutions. Their day is over, and in
their place we have a time-servin"

A TARIFF SPAT.
Senator Vest called up the Dingley
hill in the senate yesterday; not, he
said, that the issue was alive, but
that he wanted to talk on the. tariff.
He denounced the bill as the most
remarkable piece of legislation ever
presented. He declared that pros
perity would never come with in
creased tariff, and finally precipitated
a long and hct discussion between
himself, Frye, Mills and Aldrich, in
the course of which Frye predicted
that if the Dingley bill was not
passed, there would be enormous, im-
