WOULD' FORCE CONCESSIONS.
From a dispatch sent out from
Berlin, Germany, it appears that
our present trade relations with
that country are on the eve of an i
eruption on account of Germany's
intention to insist on a more re
ciprocal tariff schedule in her
favor. 1 )
Germany has concluded hew
treaties with a number of Eu
ropean countries which "form a
new basis" and by which she ex
pects to demand of the United
States practical recipriocity. Real
ly, this is more than she can rea
sonably expect of us, fairly dis
posed as we are towards Ger
many and her trade.
. Many of the European coun
tries with which Germany has
just concluded new treaties have
maximum and minimum duties
on the same articles in f aver of,
or against a certain country. We
have a fixed tariff schedule which
assures a ' square deal for all."
Owing to this fact, were a new
treaty negotiated with Germany,
on the lines she dictates, we
would be favoring Germany and
dealing unfairly with other coun
tries having as much claim to
our trade and generosity aS ' has
One thing is pretty certain and
that is that the United States
will never see the day when she
does not do a large import busi
ness no matter how, well in hand
eur own manufacturers have
home trade. J3o long as we send
ship loads of goods abroad some
thing will come back in these
ships they will not ' return en
If Germany will trade with us
on terms fair and honest in the
eyes of the world her trade will
be v appreciated otherwise we
.must locate another market for
our surplus. Treaty or no treaty,
so long as we have what Germany
is obliged to possess and can pro
vide it cheaper than she can pro
' cure it elsewhere we will get her
patronage, notwithstanding the
fuss she is inclined to make. :
A PROMPT DECISION.
1 1 is' a nfatter of congratulation
that Judge . Bellinger has ; so
promptly rendered a 'decision in
the abatement plea Of Senator
Mitchell. ' Without passing upon
the guilt or innocence of Senator
Mitchell, one is impressed with
the thought that were a man en
tirely free from anything bear
ing the appearance of guilt he
would desire a speedy trial.
It seems that an innocent man
would naturally demand all haste
in his vindication. But this is
not all in the present case; Sena
tor Mitchell is the representative
of the people of Oregon and it is
of vital importance to them that
his innocence be proved, or, if
disproved, that.it be done with
out delay. It is to be hoped for
the good name of the state and
on account of a long period of
efficient public service, that the
senator may be able to free his
skirts from any stigma that at
present attaches to him. But
in seeking pretext to delay his
trial he is not strengthening him
self with the people.
,The new First Presbyterian
Church of Pittsburgh, Pa., was
dedicated on Sunday, the 16th
inst. The building and furnish
ing cost upwards of $400,000.
Two beams, each 84 . feet long
and two feet Erjuaro support a
great number- of stone arches.
These timbers were from Oregon
and are said to be the longest
ever brought into Pittsburg. Or
egon has whole forests of such
trees as supplied those beams. '
Norris and Rowe's Magnificent
Double Manageries as an' ' 1
Aid to the Study.
One of the pleasantest and
most profitable hours that can be
spent anywhere may be found in
the large new double managenes
of the Norris and Rowe Greater
Circus. There is not a great
deal of opportunity offered else
where for a practical study of
animal life. The relations of
the wild beasts of the world to
mankind are but little under-
The marvels of creation
are no where greater than in the
strange and diversified forms or
animate existedce as exemplified
in wild ana untamea, ana un
tamable, beast. '
In order to make knowledge of
wild animals obtainable the
authorities of various cities have
established zoological gardens.
but they are enormously expen-
sive institutions ana only the
wealthiest communities can af
ford them. It is because the
Norris andv Rowe greater circus
make one of the many features
of their exhibitions a managerie
so complete in every particular
that they, are of incalculable
practical benefit to any and
every community they visit.
Years of study of zoology in
books is not so effective as an
hour spent in , this managerie.
And when during this hour one
mav be amused by the antics of
the ' monkeys, marvel atj the
strange creatures of odd shapes
and savage dispositions and . at
the fame time be entertained by
the music ot the military band.
an hour of diversion and study
is supplied that can be had no
where else. It is really a auty
to get ' to the -shows early
enough to allow ; the i children
ample time to see all of the ani
mals. An hour is not too long
for a hasty inspection of them
all. The doors will be opened a
tuil hour before the big show
begins when C the Norris and

What Davenport Said.
We are pleased to note that our
predictions in regard to the suc
cess of Mr. Waeeoner's book.
"Stories of Old Oregon," are be
ing supplemented by the press in
general, and. in tact, by all who
have read it. We are permitted
to make the tallowing, extract
trom a letter, by Homer .Daven
port on reading the book:
"I can't express my pleasure
on owning a book that pleases
me so much, and I want to say
that it is one of the most inter
esting that I have ever read. You
are a capital story writer, and
your Indian stories brought the
tears and made me proud that my
father was a pioneer."
Again, here is another extract
from a letter from the same writer
to a friend who wrote to him
about the book:
"I want, to say I have never
read so interesting a book as
"Stories of Old Oregon." What
a writer Mr. Waggoner is and
how his stories can make' you
shed tears. He has a great fu
ture before, him."
This from such a man as Dav
enport, who is constantly in touch
with the literary men of the age
is a great compliment and can
but add a renewed interest to the

, The sale of property at the brick
stable, Wednesday, attracted a
large number of people to Corvallis.
Some twelve or fifteen vehicles,, and
a like number of horses were dis
posed of, as well as many other
things that accumulate . about a
stable. The proprietors, Messrs.
Fruit and Waggoner claim to have
as much remaining unsold as was
disposed of. ' There is nothing
definite about their plans for the
futuie and they were considering a
division of the remaining property
yesterday. They agreed to give
W . P. Lafferty possession of the
property yesterday evening.
