SATUUDAY, OCTOBER IS, 1902.
The marriage market has opened in
this county with a boom. Two cere

Democracy has seen many glimmers
o hope through the clouds that have
hung over the country of late, but
with the coal strike settled and Bryan
and Cleveland and Hill talking, the
cloud grows darker for democracy.
The Portland Law Enforcement
League will havo the sheriff arrest
the chief of police and constable and
then have the coroner arrest the sher

ner? Ho ought to be arrested too.
Not a guilty one should escape.
It is difficult to pass laws and ordi
nances to please everybody. The bi
cyclists and the officers are all kick
ing on the present bicycle ordinance.
Bicyclists should keep quiet. There
are but few cities or towns in the
United States where bicyclists are
permitted to ride on the sidewalks.
And there are few bicyclists in Pen
dleton that ride within the provisions
of the ordinances. It is a bad prece
dent, anyway, but it is probably best
to tolerate it until the town is pro
vided with paved streets.
Bryan now comes forward and tells
what he has done for democracy in
the way of contributions to campaign
funds. He claims that he has con
tributed $19,000 for campaign pur
poses within the past six years. It
would be interesting to know how
much Mr. Bryan has realized by rea
son of the active steps he has taken
in politics. Of course, he was not
paid for his work, but the notoriety
that he has attained has placed him in
a position to make more money than
if he had been hired straight out. For

The republican party may claim
the credit for settling the strike, but
the credit does not all lie there. Dem
ocracy, the balancing power of this
government, comes in for an equal
share. In their dire extremity the
people were turning to her. They al

of peril. The republicans saw this
and they hastened to redeem them

It was the ever-watchful democracy

graduated his father preseuted him
with tho San Francisco Examiner.

The statistics of tho receipts of cat-

country show an immense decreaso
of range cattle. The rango belug de

costly source on the high-priced pas

the cheapest to the costliest source
of production, with a resulting rlso of
beef on tho hoof from J2.50 per hun
dred to $8.50. nnd a greater rise In

It Is now known that high prices on
the hoof are to bo perpetuated by an
other factor. The owner of farm-bred
