Some weeks ago the country
was fiercely shaken over a de-
claration at the Chicago reciproc-
ity congress in favor of a dual
tariff . . A tariff for our friends
and another for our enemies
sounds nice and convenient, does
it not? There is no need for
any dual tariff business what
ever at this or any other time.
Tariff revision Till, in all proba
bility, meet but little favor at
the hands of the next congress.
Revision, not being badly needed
in any particular degree at pres
ent, is not likely to become a
paramount issue. To re vise, at
present can further no end other
than to provide an issue for dem
ocracy. Considering every
thing, it is a fair guess that the
policy of the next congress will
be to let well enough alone so far
as tariff revision is concerned.
To revert io the dual tariff idea,
it may be of interest to quote
the Montreal Gazette, as follows:
Secretary Shaw has inquired
of Governor Cummins, of Iowa,
who attacked him fiercely at the
recent Chicago reciprocity con
ference, how the United States
can discriminate in favor of
France or any other European
nation of equal purchasing in
clination without discriminating
against Great Britian? It is
. most unkind of the Secretary to
ask such embarrassing questions
of gentlemen who are laboring
under the Fielding idea that the
Tariff is a thing which can. be
used as a bludgeon or as soft
soap. Secretary Shaw still holds
to the old idea that the success
ful Tariff must be framed in the
interests of the naiion that
makes it, and of tnat nation
MR.. HILL ON RAILROADS.
A few evenings ago, J. J- Hill,
the greao railroad magnate, was
varied and dined in Portland and
. during the course of the even
ing made quite a notable speech
, in behalf of the railroads of the
United States. Many of Mr,
Hill's remarks were of unusual
interest, although some or. them
were -somewhat misleading. Mr,
. Hill is no fool and a person must
not expect to hear from his lips
anything that is damaging to
railroads'and the "interest of rail
road owners. Among other things
The United States has today the lowest
rail transportation in the world by a
great extent. Russia has the next lowest
tp the United States, and they pay for
hauling a ton of freight loo miles on an
average of $1.70. Great Britain pays an
average ot $2.35 and the United States
pays an average of 76 cents. Notwith
standing that the average rate paid by
the people of the United States is only
about 40 per cent of that of Russia, we
have a great many people who are
preaching a new doctrine, and that is the
- regulation of railroad rates by Federi.1
authority. Now, let me say to you that
if the Federal laws or the state laws are
what they ought to be, they ought to pro
tect every man in the enjoymentjof his
own proper rights, and nothing beyond,
(Applause.) Take the case of our own
Great Northern railway. It has been an
nounced in an official manner that there
has been no reduction of rates in the
United States for 25 years; that tariffs
have been reduced at times, but that
whenever a tariff was reduced, the classi
fication was given another turn of the
wheel and advanced so as at least to off
set the reduction in the tariff. t.
. Now, grant we have cheaper
rates of transportation than any
other country, this does not
signify that the people Jiave no
grievances. Take Russia for in
stance, her hr.uls are shorter on
v the average tfcnn they are in the
United States a:: J it is but prop-
. er that they be proportionate
ly higher. England, on the other
. ' hand has to pay a higher rate
for railroad transportat.on be
cause her hauls on the average
But the people of the United
States are not agrieved so much
on account of the rates charged
by the railroads (not but what
plenty is charged) as they are
over the system of rebates that
discriminate against one shipper
in favor of another. Here is
where gross injustice is done.
! A man with
means is given a
; club in the way of rates that he
j may kill off his business rival of
less financial backing. This is
'unjust; on this point is where
: the trouble hinges,
j There is no desire on the part
I of the general public of this great
j country to do an injustice to the
railroads. We all realize their
importance to the country, most
vital, too. It is to the interest !
of the people that railroads exist,
as they are one of the greatest .
fact as in our industrial life and
development, but when the man
agement of these roads inaugur-
I ate a system of discriminating
rates that crushes one man and
builds up another it is time to
call a halt. It is then time to
consider, seriously, too, the mat
ter of railroad rate control by
government as proposed by
Retarded by Monopoly.
i he well-known newspaper
correspondent, William E. Cur
tis, who recently has been in
vestigattng conditions in western
states and territories and writing
a series ot ai tides for the Chi
cago-Record-Herald on the
growth and develepment of the
great southwestern region, in his
aiticla on New Mexico speaks
pointealy of the knd monopoly
of that territory. He declares
that one of the most serious ob
jections to the admission of New
Mexico into the Union is that
considerable poition of its lands
are held in lare tracts by corpor
ations and individual owners.
Nearly all the available water
is also monopolized bv these
rge land owners, and thus
settlers are shut out acd develop
ment is retarded. A few of the
grants have been sub-divided and
sold, but most of them are held
as stock ranches or for speculative
ourposes. These grants date
back to the time when the terri
tory was a part of old Mexico
and under the government of
Spain. After the annexation of
New Mexico, several of the
grant? were confirmed by indi
vidual - who paid little or nothing
for them. The Mora is the largest
grant which remains undivided
and embraces 2,100,000 acres.
Other large grants range from
80,000 to 400,000 acres and
The :'ederal government has
reserved large tracts of forest in
different parts of the territory,
which will insure the safety of
so,me of the most important
streams and sources of water
No doubt these large grants
are a great hindrance to the
settlement and development of
New Mexico and therefore a ser
ious objection to the admission
of the territory to statehood.
Few hops can be found now
outside the bale. During the
last week many pickers could be
seen returning nome from the
various yards. While the Ore
gon crop was not so heavy as it
has been in some past years, the
yield was good and the quality
first-class. In fact, there is little
doubt but the hops raised in Ore
gon this year eclipse the crop of
any other section of earth.
Contract hops have already
commenced leaving the state lor
the East in considerable quanti
ties. They are found to be oi
such quality that buyers can find
no fault. , Some hops have been
sold at from 15c to 18c per pound.
1 "Oregon hops are the only
first-quality hops raised in the
world this year,", said E- J.
Smith, of Oneida, N. Y., recent
ly, "and they should bring top
prices. Saturday a sale of 200
bales choice Oregon hops was
made at 12 cents, and the New
York man who bought them is
in the market for 500 bales more.
Growers are not anxious to sell,
are shorter than they are
however, and I look lor a decid
ed advance belore many Oregon
hops have changed hands.
"We hear of Puyallup hops
being sold at low figures, but the
quality of Puyallup hops is poor
this year as a result of much ioz
coming up from the Paget Snnd
which turned them a cid gra
color. They can in no manner
be compared to the Oregoti-grown
