V. are sori'V at the course jmisueil
the "Standard." 'Indeed if such a
bourse were general ly the Democratic
journals, there would be some truth in
the strictures of the. "Orogonian" as to
the Son them Confederacy having cap
tured the government. The jmpor that
cannot speak with decency, v.e do net
sven Bay-respech of Gen. Grant must in
line ahy causa it seeks to uphold. The
"Standard" puts the head "Dying of
jim-jams" over its account of the piti
ful condition of Ge.u Grunt, who is
'slowly hut surely being consumed by
'Cancer of the month. We ca:i think
of no fate more terrible than the death
by Cancffr. W know that the qreat
heart of the American people goes out
' in sympathy to the great captain, so
'oftfcn victorious-, that at last but waits
his conquering by the king of terrors.
While we are in this vein we may pre
sume also to tell the '"Orecrcnian " that
'its assumptions regarding the Southern
'ConfeAeracy bing- in control of the
government ave not received even by
its own party with any degree of pleas

looking back. -.They, see before them

.that divided them havo been settled

Inard! Tiik Washington monument is ' an
unadorned and simple shaft of marble
and granito rising five hundred and
fty-five feet into the air. The marble
used for its completion has come for the
inost part from Maryland. The history
,of the monument is briery; A statue
l Washington was proposed by con
gress in 1783; the bill was revised and
passed in December, 1799. The work
was taken iu charge by some of th-3 citi
. ztna of Washington in 1833. The
corner-stone was laid July i, 1848, and
the cap-stone was set December G, 1884.
Tn otal weight of the immense shaft
is 81,000 tons, and to ascend the nine
hundred steps that lead to its snminic
requires twenty minutes of steady en
deavor. The total cost of, the com
pleted structne will be about 1,500,
O00, of which sum congress has appro
priated $900,000. - Of the monument
jentire the best judges say that it is
majestic but ugly;- grand and in press,
ive, but unsatisfying. It is, above all,
unique; the world has not it3 fellow.
There in, indeed, scarcely an obelisk
jvorthy to be compared with it.
The Democratic party has at last
coma in control of the general govern
tnent. It proposes to deal with the
great question before the people at the
present time. I: savs "Let. the dead,
bury the dead." The new issues, the

great questions of corporate power, of
the rights of combined capital, of the

Insanity ai.d Suicide-
Mr. Editor: If there is any - one
question affecting th vital interests of
humanity'j the investigation of which,
is of mere importance than another, iL
is that of the cruso or causes .vhich are
at work in society, producing so much
ir.Kanitv and viiicide. A correct under-
btbidiug of this'" steuiinglp iishmico
question, which is interwoven with the
highest problems c human life, cannot
be otherwise than of vast importance
not only to those liable to become vic
tim?, but to hociety at large. Especial
ly will this bo true if the causes lie
within tho province of human powei
to ievcnt or even to mitigate their
eiTocts. Permit iep, therefore, to lay
before your readers a few common
sense propositions bearing directly up
on this subject.
The biain is the organ of the mind.
Thought, reason and all the mental
and : moral emotions of the mind are
the natural functions of the brain.
Destroy or paralyze 'the organ and its
functions ase. Weaken the bram
and the power to perform its functions
will be impaired or evercome. From
these self evident proposition, it follows
that ajiy and evt-ryv thing operating
Ir.e physical irame; whose inherent
cbrsoter, and its tendency is to weak
en, paralyze or otherwise interfere with
the function's of the brain, tends to
injure the mind, pervert the moral
faculties and lead to insanity and sui
cide. Hence, if I am not greatly mis
taken, (and it I am I will thank any
one of the medical profession to set me
right) all kinds of naicotics operate
more or less directly upon the brain,
producing stupor, r frenzy, delerium
and insensibility, with a powerful ten
dency to insanity. Pew persons who
have had much experience with the
sick under medical treatment but have
se.n all the mental faculties of the
mini so paralyzed .'with morphine,
chloral, bromine ov other narcotics as
to amount to temporary imbecility and
complete aberiation of intellect; And
it is a notorious fact of every day ob
servation, that nircotic3 are in daily
and constant use by the great majority
of physicians. That taey are the chief
reliance in all cases of nervour.nes
iritability; restlessness, neuralgia, fever,
infiaiiiatiba and sleeplessness. The
mother is dosed with them, even the
babo in her arms is not exempt from
the debasing power of the brain de
stroying narcotic. Thus tho intellect
ual and moral organs of the brain is
weakened and its functions destroyed.
Like the pebble rolled in the Voriex
of the whirlpool, is constantly losing
particles from its. surfacc, and '-will
eventually, however slowly, wear en
tirely away into the Gnest.pai tides of
sand; so with the functions of the brain
under the use of narcotics. It is only
a mailer cf time, and the quantity
used, when they will S; weaken the
brain as to render it utterly and hope
lessly incapable o intellectual or moral
functions a hopeless ruin.
Since the abandonment of' blooil
jetting by . tho modical profession, the
use of narcotics have been vastly on
the increase; and a number of new
ones, of terrible potency have been ad
ded to the list. Under tho power of
these mighty engines of mischief, the
physical, mental and moral powers are
giving way and must inevetably suc
cumb. Like nobis ship laden with
precious freight, proudly riding the
angry billows of a stormy ocean, the
helm creaks and snaps asuuder -all
control is lost she dashes on furiously
in her wild career she is engulfed in
the merciless waves she sinks, to rise
If these facts bo true; and I will
thank him who can, to disprove them,
narcotics are the chief cause of insanity
byi virtue of their paralyzing effect on
the intellectual organs cf the brain.
They are also a prolific source cf the
lowest debasement in morals by paral
yzing the emotional organs of the
brain, and thereby rendering them
more or less incapable of performing
moral functions. In cases where nar
cotics have not overcome the power of
the intellect and moral organs only to
a very limited extent, the animal and
sensual organs are lashed ints fury
and such gigantic power as to usurp
their full sway and complete control
over all the nobler impulses of. the
soul. Common Sense.
The promised t new departure has
come at last Cleveland has been in
stalled as President. Retrenchment
and reform are now demanded and ex
pected. Let us give theadministiation
a cordial and hearty support and lay
the foundation f tho people's party
strong and deep.
Mccii depends upon the next tour
years as to the future of our country.
The Democracy must be wise and up
hold tho cause ef the people.

we do not get enough:
There is a universal dissatisfaction

The Oregonian's editorial last Mon
day on the "Xormal School fraud" was
opportune, in only some respectq. That
it is not in accord with our ideas of
government, nor in harmony with' the
great broad ideas of political economy,
to give stalo aid to Normal schools; or
any kind of school.', , except coninibii
public S'.-hoolr, is becoming more appar

and the cditoral refered to, justly cen

get a back handed slap at some relig
ious institutions, which ifc seems he
dislikes' so very much.

Kate Field is writing some strong
articles on the fruit of teveral months
upent in Salt Lake in the study of mor

Hie Mormon women really think of the
creed under which they li e. Her con
clusion after many talks 'with polyg
amous wives and after listening to
many sermons by the pillars ef the
Church is that "a Mormon woman is
an animal t9 replenish tho earth only
this and nothing mor" Sho proves
this assertion by many selections from
the utterances of heads of the Church.
One of the most striking is fiorn L'rig
ham Young, who said: "Elders, never
love your wives one hair's-biedth furth
er than they adorn the Gospel; never
love them-so but that you can leave
them at a morneiit's warning without
shedding' a tear. Should you love a
child any more than this? No." The
Mormon wemen, she declaiiv, believe
implicitly in tho genuineness of their
religion. If they did not, if the relig
ous instinct did not rule them complete
ly, they could never endure the brutal
ity and lust which are the main features
of ' polygamy. This article 'simply
bears out the assertions of all dispas
sionate observers of . Mormouism. It
wouli be a irood tract to distribute in
those parts of the country where the
Mormon tider finds converts.
