MUST ATTACK THE TARIFF.
"We hope the senate will de
feat the bill, for then perhaps
President Roosevelt would get
mad enough to declare for a
square: deal on the tariff ques
tion, as" he has never dared to
do as yet. He is tacitly support
ing the greatest robbery of the
people ever devised and enacted
into law on earth, the Dingley
tariiT. He must attack the tariff
if he is going to accomplish any
thing." The above is from an editorial
aDDeariner in the leading demo
cratic organ 01 the state. The
president is designated as "A
broncho buster tilting against
an engine," and the bill which
it is hoped the senate will defeat
is the Hepburn bill for the reg
ulation of railways, which has
passad the house, and is now
pending in the senate with excel
lent prospect of its passage in
unchanged form, In spite , of
the opposition of senators in
either party who are known to
favor the railroads.
It is a fair sample of the true
att'tude of that portion of the
democratic press which is owned
and controlled by plutocratic
and comoration interests. All
its expressions in favor of regu
lation of railways and other
corporations, all its sympathy
for the "dear people" who suf
fer from the lawlessness of such
corporations are wholly insincere,
Now that the prospects are most
encouraging, that these corpor
ations will be brought under
wholesome control, we read:
"We hoDe the senate will defeat
the bill." But if the bill is de
f eated it is because the pres-
Merit is tacitly supporting the
greatest robbery of the people;
TWnrnch r.he American Deo-
Die. ninety-nine hundreths of
whom believe in his courage,
sincerity and rugged honesty,
will be amazed to learn that
their nresident is not only a
broncho buster" but a knave
who consorts with robers and
tacitly supports schemes for
robbing the people. He, too,
must be a veritable dullard or he
would see that though the Stan
dard Oil Company, the Beef
Trust, and the great railway
companies are not beneficiaries I
of the tariff "he must attack the
tariff if he is going to accomplish
anything" in the way of railway
Here is the point on which we
may easily see free-trade and
democratic harmony. Here they
are agreed to be most consistent
The people are prosperous
' They understand that no small
part of their prosperity is justly
ascribed to the principle of pro-
tection so wiseiy embodied in
the Dingley tariff law. They,
the people, are not demanding

Ic is safe to believe that the
writer of the language we have

tariff, never compared it sched

tariff laws and therefore does

A man who lightly promises to
pledge himself to the people in
the matter of" Statement No. 1"
of the new. primary law comes
near being an , ignoramus or a
knave. We admit that he might
be neither like many other
things, there are '-.. exceptions.
However the constitution of the
United States says: f
"The -senate of the United
States shall be composed of two
senators from each- state, chosen
by the legislature thereof, for
Until the - constitution of ; the
United States is changed there
can be no law requiring & candi
date to pledges himself in the
matter of voting who shall be
senator from Oregon. It is
scarcely within the province of
the voters of the state to ignore
constitutional law. What is the
man who pleged himself to
' 'Statement No . 1" going to do
when he takes the following
I do solemnly swear that I
will support the constitution of
the United States."
How can he take this oath
when he has pledged himself to
do otherwise in the matter of
electing a united States sena
tor? If he knew nothing of the
constitutional law governing this
matter, he was ignorant; if he
pledges himself to defiance of
this law, he is not only a knave,
but a 'rickster.
Has Splendid Reputation.
Dr. Withycombe is head oi the
Agricultural College experiment
station and as an institute work
er he has no equal in Oregon,
and his reputation in the work of
advancing the standard or agri
culture in this state has gained
for him commendation from the
Department of Agriculture at
Washington and the leading farm
ers and business men of Oregon
n addresses are always given
"VP'" words, clear and concise,
ana nis statements are so told- as
fb5 readily .comprehended?-by
his hearers. So well rounded is
his fund of information ; on
every, phase of agricultural activ
ity in. Oregon that no topic is
brought up in an institute ?: but
what he is abie to speak on it
in a manner- that carries ' the
impress of a perfect knowledge oi
the subject. And he is equally
broad in his attainments in otner
lines of thought. His genial,
optimistic preseace is the life ei
the institute and his helpful
words of encouragement has
given many a farmer new hope
and new courage and a tangible
plan of bringing success out of
his previous failures in making
hisjarm work profitable.
The above is from the Rogue
Rivf r Courrier and but adds to
multitudinous expression? of the
press tnronghout the state in
favor of D. Withycombe as a
practical, sensible man of the
people. To know him well is to
realize that in experience that

It is impossible to enter into
a detailed account of the endless
restrictions - and most cunning
obstacles whereby the imperial
government Conducts its'wareiare

all other lands are recognized i

civilization. With only ' ten

empire with scarcely enough
means to support themselves, to
be obliged to meet increased ac
ademic fees ; and to be deprived
at the same time of the right of
giving private lessons without
special permission from t'ie con
stituted authorities; with tht
power vested in the rectors by
the Ministry of Education to dis
turbs any student before earning
his diploma the absolutely indi-
spensible instrument to enabl
one to make his way in the

that the struggle of the intellec-
tial element against, the des
potism of the North should have
become so iutcuse.?
In the Bahama islands there
flourishes a tree the roots of
which attain to enormous propor
tions, often reaching to a height
of 15 feet of 20 feet above the sur
face of the earth, spreading in all
directions, underground as well,
in order to obtain sustenance and
give support to the trunk and
branches. On the tree grow in
numerable balls of silky cotton,
presenting an almost fairy-like
appearance as they glisten in the
sunlight. They are in great de
mand for stuffing' pillows, being
soft as down. The spaces formed
by the roots are often quite as
large as fair-sized rooms, and, if
roofed over, one tree would form
a commodious dwelling-place for
a family; in fact, it would be in
finitely superior to the average
native hut. Holes could be cut
in the roots to allow of internal
communication. Up to the pres
ent, however, the natives have
not utilized them as . houses,
though they are frequently in re
quest as stables for horses. '
When a woman says."I am racked wltb
pain," the word "racked " recalls the days
when they stretched the tender bodies ol
women on the rack with rope and pulley
until the very joints cracked.
Fancy an attendant saying to the tor
tured woman, "Please smile and look
And yet the woman "racked with pain,
is expected to smile through her agony
and to make home happy. She can't
do it. It Is against Nature. Generally
speaking, the racking pains of ill-health
such as headache, backache and "bearing-down
pains "are related to derange:

is removed the general health Is restored,

GRANDMOTHER GREAT HELP
Aeed Woman, Proves That One la
" Kever Too Old to Be
rA clear-headed woman of 80 re
cently told how her father's moth
er went from Maine to Massachu
selts to make her home with her
son'c family 75 years ago this au
tumn. She was so frail that the
captain of the small sailing-vessel
hardly dared to take her as a pas
seriger, tmt eventually found her
most helpful in caring for th
other storm-tossed travelers, ac
cording to Youth's Companion.
"Although they had never met,"
continued the narrator, "my moth
er greeted her with the words: 'I
am glad you have come.' At this
my grandmother broke down, say
ing: 'I was afraid you would no
be.' Our family was very poor
but we soon found her a most he!"
f ul addition to it. She taught me,
the youngest child, how to sew
and to read, and did much to
amuse and interest me."
The neighbors soon came to like
this aged woman, and to send
small delicacies to her whenever
they had them. The first tomato
that her little granddaughter ever
saw came in this way.
One day the family was startled
by the sound of some one falling.
"It's in grandmother's room!"
cried the little girl's mother, and
together they went there, to find
that the good old woman had
breathed her last. "This was near
ly 70 years ago," concluded tne nar
rator, "but the recollections of
my grandmother are among the
most precious of life's memories."

early times doubtless has its coun
