At present there is consider
able "to do" about concessions
Germany will make the United
States in return for similar con
cessions to her importations.
What these concessions are is
not made' very plain.
Advocates of reciprocity keep
howling about this matter and
declaring for a reduction of the
tariff and are eternally prattling
about a dicker that ought to be
made with Germany. However,
they fail to inform the farmer, j
to whom they appeal so strongly,
that his best market is not in
Germany, but in the United
States. Nor do they tell him the
tariff policy is not to rob the
Americam producer but to pro
tect him for the products of
the cheap labor of foreign coun
tries. Nor is he told that the best
thing for the American is for the
conditions here to be such that
the mills and factories be run
ning on full time the year
around; good wages and good
prices follow so surely as night
fbOows day and our farmers 'and
laborers get the benefit just
as do all other classes of citizens,
An exchange very neatly sums
up the situation as follows;
It is tetter to teli the fanner the fair and
level truth about the matter of swapping
TWig" concessions, and that is that no
Tariff" swapping can be good for the
" feurmer that provides for a larger importa
tion of competitive goods and for a neC-
essarilT smaller production of domestic
goods. Let the farmer bear in mind that
in all the world there are not to be found
people who will buy one-tenth as much
and pay as well for what he has to sell as
the American wage earner will buy and
pay. There is no possible market as val
nable to the American farmer as the
Reciprocity, as it is understood
today, or in other words, under
conditions of late origin, partake
of viciousness to considerable ex
tent in that it gives to countries
discriminating against the United
States an advantage over those
bow treating favorably with us.
Germany is the one country
proposing at present to discrimin
ate against imports from the
United States. Moreover, it may
fee mentioned that China, at the
instigation of Germany beyond
doubt, is attempting, or at any
rate threatening a little boycott.
These things are worthy of con
siderable study and engaging
many of our greatest statesmen.

Speaking: further, Mr. Ham
mond dwelt on, thej changes in
the state of late years, and from
the tenor of his remarks it was
inferred that1 previously he had
: doubts as to the policy of build
ing the additional trackage. He
denied that the project had been
permitted to die, and while he
admitted that he was not
familiar with the progress which
had been made of late in the pre
paration, his manner indicated
plainer than words that the com
pany is about to launch torch and
clear the way for a mainline

For a mouth or twoE. P.Grtf
ioz suffered with a severe pain in
his head. About ten days ago
the pain had become unbearable"
and he went to Portland to con
sult a specialist. The result of
the consultation was an order
from the physician to Mr. Greffoz
that he go to the mountains and
take a rest, and free his mind
of all care and anxiety of everv
nature. This he did but failed to
inform his friends of his whereabouts.
Days passed and nothing was
heard from him and relatives and
friends in this city began to worry.
Finally inquiry and search was
instituted. Sheriff Burnett, brother-in-law
of Mr. Greffoz, took up
tne case. .Last Friday evening
Sheriff Burnett arrived home
with the good news that Mr.
Greffoz had been located and was
in good hands and receiving the
best of care.
It appeared that Ed had friends
in the Cascade mountains who
lived in that region lying be
tween the Calipooia and the San-
tiam, and taking his physians ad

this time he became too ill to

It is an old saying that "where -Ihere

Just at present the C. & E. is

what is being reported from time

It is now ruiDjred that this

Yaquina Bay may be figured on
as the shipping point. This
would mean that steamers would
ply to and from this and ether
points. Such a condition would
be a delight to everyone, as along
the line there would be increased
activity and business. May we
yet live to see it. In the Tele

was talking Dr. Lester joined

the matter and learned that the

flipped a coin, and to make Doc's
