with arrest if they do not execute the
law. They must go down into the

law, acordlng to the decrees of those
advocating a closed city. A hard fight
is on. The sheriff and police are the
only officers to execute the law.
What will be the effect of having
them arrested? How do officers act
under compulsion? Will not the ac
tlon of the moral element array the
officers against them, and will not this
move result in making Portland n
worse town than ever? v The greatest
danger to the mornl move always is
the over-zealousness of its advocates.
It is the remark of every stranger
who takes a drink of water in Pendle
ton, that the water Is hard to beat.
But Pendleton is growing and It Is
necessary to Increase the supply. Too
much good water has never been ob
tained anywhere, and money Invested
In this way Is always economically
spent. The move to Improve Pendle
ton's water system is commendable.
Mexico must now go down In her
pockets and put up $l,4ui),000 to the
California bishops. Long delayed
bills draw interest and Mexico Is in
a position to realize this Just now.
These claims have been running for
many years and should have been
paid long ago. While the subject mat
ter Is known as the "Pious Fund," It
is possible now If one could hear the
Mexicans comment on it that it would
sound more like a "Cussing Fund."
According to the signs of the times
the steamboats will all be tied up on
the Pacific Coast lines between San
Francisco and the Sound points. If It
is not one trouble it is another. It is
growing more evident every day that
the government will have to take all
of the gigantic enterprises into hand.
Too many trusts operators and too
many men cannot get along together.
Unionism and trusts will not work to
gether. Whether all of the blame is
on the trusts or not, thoy have the
greatest power and use it most op
pressively, and at them the main blow
must be aimed.
All of the surrounding towns and
cities have had their fairs and carni
vals and have made a good showing
of the enterprise and push, and have
at the same time called attention to
their local resources and attractions.
Pendleton has nothing of this kind,
yet It Iooks like a fair day here every
day. The streets are crowded, busi
ness men are busy, and everything
puta on a life that shows a vigor that
only a solid backing can give. The
full realization of these prosperous
tlmee will not bo felt by the people
of the Inland Empire, probably for
years to come, and then they will
look back and say, "Were not those
grand times back in the beginning
of this century?"
The playwright muHt appeal to tho
ideal. He must not apply the real at
any point, oven to the naming of
things. Yet when tho Ideal is reach
ed the public shout how real! The
novel that is not overdrawn to an
abnormal degree would be consider
ed dull. The play that actually gave
the real would be considered stupid,
yet when one does something ideal
on the stage, it mattors not how rid
iculous, tho audience will exclaim:
"How real!" It is what the mind
-clamors lor in Action and on the
stago that seems real and not what
is real. Tracy, in his most lucky es
capes, did not bear half the charmed
life of the average stage villain, yet
of the people for relief from extor
tionate trust prices on the necessaries
of lite In California, however, the
party is wholly committed to the pol
icy that protecUon of the trusts is an
indlsionslble part of the protection
edifice. Callfornlans who want relief
from the present high prices can find
that relief only by electing the dem
ocratic congressional nominees. San
GOLD AND SILVER MONEY.
Some people are very gullible, es
pecially are those susceptible of be
ing worked by strangers. The com
monest fakir can come along and get
Into their good graces and get their
good money, while they are suspic
ious of their nelghoors, men who hav
lived a lifetime without a blemish up
on their character. It is such men
as these that the fakir strikes. There
Is not so much sympathy deserved
after all by these fellows who let the
smooth-tongued stranger come along
and talk them Into parting with their
cash without consideration. In this
day and time there is but little neces
sity for dealing with a stranger who
cannot furnish ample credentials as
to who he' is. Telegraph lines and tel
ephone lines make the most distant
places close neighbors and it does not
cost much, either.
A DEMORALIZED PARTY.
The withdrawal of Speaker Hender
son from the congressional fight is
only one of many evidences that the
republican party is completely divid
ed on the trust question.
The republicans of Iowa have ac
cepted the wise democratic doctrine
that when American-made goods are
sold In foreign countries at lower
prices than are asked at home the
necessity for protection has passed.
They declaie that wherever the tariff
fosters monopoly it should he revis
ed and the duties lowered.
Sooner than accept this doctrine,
Speaker Henderson declined a renom
inatioc and denounced the proposi
tion to curtail the power of the trusts
as "free-trade poison." His constit
uents are firm in their position, how
ever, and have nominated in his stead
a republican who unreservedly ac
cepts the plank which Henderson re
jected. The "Iowa Idea" of accepting the
democratic plan for curbing the trusts
is not confined to Iowa. In the 11th
Massachusetts district Eugene Foss, a
wealthy manufacturer, has made a
fight before the people and won the
republican nomination for congress on
a platform calling for "free coal, free
iron, free wool, and free hides."
Mr. Foss, who Is a brother of Con
gressman Foss, of Illinois, made a
fight in the" primaries directly attack
ing the tariff plank of the republican
state platform. In addition to his
"free raw material" program, he an
nounced himself as In favor of reci
procity with Cuba. He was opposed
by the regular party organization with
a candidate who stood by the orthodox
trust interpretation of the doctrine of
protection, but Foss and the demo
cratic plan won out triumphantly.
On many trust-mndo goods the
prices for export to foreign countries
arc not more, than half the prices
charged American consumers. This
Is true on such staple articles of
dally use as farm machinery, axes,
kettles, wlro nails, barbed-wire, riv
ets, typewriters and sewing machines.
That American cpnsumers are so dis
criminated agains.t Is no secret. Pres
ident Schwab, of. tho steel trust, ad
mltttcd tho fact when testifying be
fore tho Industrial Commission, and
the catalogues sent to foreign coun
tries also furnish proof,

Nothing could show more striking
ly the change In the monetary condi
tion of this country than a compari
son of the stock of gold nnd the money
in circulation now and In 1S9G.
On Saturday last the gold in the
treasury amounted In round numbers
t; 1574.000,000, an increase of nearly
$SO,000,000 since July 1, 1901, and the
largest sum, with possibly one excep
tion, ever held by any government.
In October, 189G, at the height of
'h ree silver campnigu. the treasury
held less than 122,uoO,000 In gold,
and the total amount in circulation
was only $478,000,000 nearly J100,
000,000 less than Is now held by the
Largely ns a result of this increased
gold supply the amount of money in
circulation has Increased from $21.15,
the per capita average for 1S96, to j
nearly ?29 at the present time.
Meanwhile the commercial ratio of
sliver to gold, which was 30.32 In j
1890, is now about 38. The treasury I
now holds 540,000,000 Bllver dollars,
and there are nearly 70,000.000 in,
circulation, against 380,000,000 In the
treasury and 56,000,000 in circulation
six years ago. i
From whatever point of view these
figures are regarded, whether in re
lation to currency supply or to prices
of commodities, they carry a splendid
vindication of the principle and policy
of sound money. New York World.
