It must be a source of pride with
Mr. Harrison, as it is with every Re

after thirty years of practical test
given to the principles - which form
the groundwork of thejparty, Buch
prosperity can be shown in every do-

' laugh down the marked increase of
wages, 'of employes, and of amount of
money in savings banks; but these
will not down at their bidding, and
will be a veritable Banquo's ghost in
.1896. There "never haa been such an
era of prosperity as has been witnessed
during the past ten years, and the
purchasing cower of money haa never
been so high, or labor as well paid.
The future historian cannot ignore"

The Telegram, if it ia an annex of
the Oregonian, is sufficiently Demo
cratic to be distinguished from the
: great paper to which it owes its exist
ence. - In commenting on the remark
of Senator Stewart that the president's
message is an overdrawn picture of the
prosperity of tbe country, it says: "By
comparison we are morn prosperous
than a good manv other natioas. Yet
our degree of prosperity is far below
wnat it would have been if our tariff
and financial legislation had been in
.the interest of the masses instead of
in the interest of the classes. McKin-

greatest financial depression has been
suffered by other countries, the United
States has been effected tbe least, and
has always had the balance of exchange
with foreign countries in her favor.
Given tbe same conditions as existed
in 1865, and, would the doctrines ad

1892 have met the contingencies aa

by the fact that there has been a large
increase of wages and -more earned per

of the country. Times are ood, and

A'long account is published in the
dispatches regarding the marital infe
licity of Mr. and Mrs. Storey, previous
to her divorce from him, and this will
be read with avidity by a morbid pub
lic so soon after her tragic death. This
depraved appetite to eagerly devour
every slimy morsel of scandal in
reference to anyone whose lips are
closed by . the portals of the tomb
from explaining or refuting, is fed by
the pres3 that catere to the vicious
taste. Mr. Storey should have had
sufficient respect for his former wife
and the mother of his children to cover
her frailties, whatever they may be,
with the mantle of pilence, and by
giving publicity to matters in which
people generally have no interest ex
cept idle curiosity, and whicti should

With the opening of the sprir.g
business may be expected to be brisk
at The Dalles, for indications point to
many factors of development being pu t
in operation. . As soon as the contract

with the greatest activity, and the
portage railway above this city will be
under way if the necessary appropria

improvements will make this point
what nature designed it to be the
great distributing center of the inter
ior and if growth and prosperity do
not result the blame will rest with our
own people. As often stated in these
ci.amns, The Dalles haa all the nat
ural resources for a great inland com
mercial and business point, and in the
near future these will be developed
and wealth will flow in the wake of
enterprise. . Our citizens should pre

Seattle has an unenviable reputa
tion for tragical endings to love affairs,
and within the past few days tw
people have met their death at the
hands of jealous' suitors. Mr. Boyd,
intelligent and well connected, was th
victim of his neglected wife's pistol
and more recently Mrs. Storey, a tal
ented and accomplished musician, met
her death by Moulton, whom she re
fused to marry. This high tension of
nerve and fever heat of blood cannot
be the result of the sluggish, misty
climate ot the Sound, but must be
from some other cause. ' Perhaps the
excitement of "booming" real estate
may have unbalanced the mental eqni
librium of our neighbors by the Medit
erranean of the Pacific, and the facul
ties may not have settled down to a
normal condition yet.
Dr. Parkhurst, as president of the
Society , for; the Suppression 'of Vice,
may be euccessful in throwing -sunlight
upon hidden corners in - the great city
of New York, and in showing that the
police have winked at violations of
law in this regard he will have accom
plished his oljecr. But Superintend
ent Byrnes proves by statistics that
New York is less vicious than other
large cities, and this ia some commen
dation for her police force. The war
has begun between the custodians of
the peace of New York and thia emi
nent divine, as president of the society
named, and further developments may
be expected in relation to the high
ways and byways of the metropolis of
the new world.'. .
The election is over, and now is tbe
appropriate time to advocate laws re

it might injure either party to make
an onslaught on the foreign element
in our population; but now that the
ballots have been counted it cau do no
injury. It is, perhaps, a fact that
great good would result to the country
by closing the gates to the undesirable
cla se-; but .it would accomplish
greater good to pass laws to regulate
the elective franchise. There are too
many ignorant voters in tho country,
and if these were debarred from the
privilege of electors their power of

xne prevailing query among the

ITS USE AND ABUSE.
The death of Mr. Jay Gould has
furnished the text for many long edi
torial sermons in the press against the
prevailing ambition in the minds of
American youth of, accumulating
wealth by any means or atthe sacri
fice of many of the pleasures of life.
These sermons are well-timed, and es
pecially so when the possessor of a
colossal fortune passes out of existence
without leaving behind him the least
kindly remembrance, except . with the
immediate members of his family.. .If
Mr. Gould had devoted his wealth,
like Peter Cooper, or other philan
thropists, for the amelioration of his
fellow man, his memory would have
been cherished by posterity, and the
world would have been much better
for his having lived; but, aa it ia, it
gave no comfort or happiness except
to himself, and the monument which
marks hia last resting place will re
rsivfl liltle veneration. That he was
an extraordinary man, is demonstrated
by bis executive ability and financial
management in accumulating such im
mense riches from such' an humble be
ginning; but if these faculties had
been in youth bent in a different di
rection he would have accomplished
more lasting good, and would have
been moradonored and lamented in
But the ambition to acquire riches
in the youthful mind, and in which
Mr. liould proved himself so success
ful, cannot be blamed while money is
considered the only passport to social
and politica honors in this country.
It seem3 to be the "open sesame" to
the higher plane of existence, and the
philosopher in home spun occupies a
lower position in the opinion of man y
than the ignorant ass in broadcloth
The ancients first discovered the truth
of the old aphemm, "The love of
monev ia the root of all eviL" While
poverty i8 considered criminal and
wealth a legitimate excuse for vice, it
will so continue, and men and women
will strain every nerve to hoard up
the shining dollars. So long as stand
ing in society, position in politics, and
exemption from the ordiuary burdens
incident to an honest life can be pur
chased by gold, the- highest desire of
all will be in that direction. - In this,
Mr. Gould has simply successfully car
ried out the ambition of nearly every
schoolboy and schoolgirl in the land.
of many statesmen and scholar?, of
legislatora and lawyers, of 80,010 judges
and divines, and he is a pattern wor
thy of their imitation. The end justified
the means with him as it does with
them. They will never reach the
hight he attained, and may employ less
fruitfnl ways; but the same hopes and
heart-yearnings after the accomplish
ment of the object permeate them as
him, anfl like him they sacrifice every
pleasure in life and trend under foot

selves and fellows in this unceasing
race after the golden guinea. "
But money 13 necessary in every
walk of life, and its possessor has the
means of accomplishing great good. It
should be used as the means to accom
plish desirable ends, and not the only
object of human existence, to which
all others are to be slavishly subser
vient. The man who has not suf
ficient appreciation of its value to
provide for himself and family, under
favorable circumstances, has no claims
upon society and a very meager right
to exist at all. It is an excellent
servant; but, es a master? it brutalizes
every feeling in the human heart;
blunts the sense of honor and integ
rity, and gives free vent to passion,
duplicity and -vice. There are many
noble attainments, the acquisition of
which raises the - man. or woman to
higher plane of existence, w.hich may
be acquired by its 'use; hut its' pos
session alone leaves ' one as poor in
mind and soul as when he was born
into the world. '

The few months of Republican rule

Tbe present congress will be of

will soon be changed from Republican

- Two Brave Vlrls. -
Tacoma, Dec. 8 Two brave girls, with
a lantern, saved a heavily laden Southern
Pacific passenger train from total des
truction, near Grant's Pass, Or., Wednes
day evening. The wreckers had re
moved tbe outside rail over the high
trestle across Cow creek canyon, and had
not the engineer been signaled just as be
was approaching it, tbe entire train
would have plunged to tbe bottom nf tbe
roc lev gulch, 45 feet below. The fu 1
story of tbe attempted wreck, which tbe
Southern Pacific evidently suppressed, is
told here to-night by Dr. G. V. Calhoun,
one of tbe Washington presidential elec
tors, wno arrived this evening from Cali
fornia. He says tbat tbe displaced rail
was discovered by two young ladies wbo
crossed the trestle with a lantern just be
fore the train arrived. They were horri
fied tt the discovery. Just then the train
was heard approaching. One of the gir's
instantly rushed up tbe track: swinging
the lantern over ber bead, seeing which
the engineer stopped tbe train at the ap
proach of tbe trestle. The train con
sisted of 13 cars containing 250 passen
gers and. Dr. Calhoun says tbe loss of life
would have been frightful bad the train
not been stopped. The wreckers did the
work quick y, as the tr irk was all right
when the waichman passed over the 'res
tie half an hour before train time When
the passengers learned of their narrow
escape tbey made up a puise and ap
pointee a committee to learn tbe'ldentity
of the brave girls and buy each an appro
prlate Christmas present.

for tbe minister, tbat everything the
missing man did before going away in
dicated be was carrying out a settled
plan ot action. He was careful to pay
every cent be owed before he left Brook
lyn. It bag been said that tbe young

poverty and suffering be found among
tbe poor of Brooklyn. Many people

The following facts and figures show the

In submitting my annual message to con -gress
I have great satisfaction in being able to
say that the general conditions oflecting the
commercial and industrial interests of the
United States are in the highest degree favor
able. A comparison of the existing condi
tions with those of the most lavored period in
the history of the country will itself show that
such a degree of prosperity and so general a
diffusion of comforts of life were never beforo
enjoyed by our people. The total wealth of
the country in 1S60 was $16,159,615,068. In
1890 it amounted to $62,610,000,000, an in
crease of 287 pei cent. The total mileage of
the railways in the United States in i860 was
30,626. In 1890 it v.as 187.741, an increase
of 448 per cent, and it is estimated that there
will be about 4000 miles of track added by
the close of the year 1892. The official re
turns of the nth census and those of the 10th
for the 75 leading cities furnished the basis
for the following comparison:

THE INCREASES SHOWN.
I am informed by the superintendent of the
census that the omission of certain industries
in 1880, which were included in 1890, ac
counts in part for the remarkable increase
thus shown. But after making full allowance
for the differences of method, and deducting
the returns for all industries, not included in
the census of 1880, there remain in the re
ports from these 75 cities the following in-creases:
Value of product i
Waea er. rued
Ji umber wage earners
The wage-earnings not only show an in
creased aggregate, but an increase per capita
from $386 in 1880, to $547 in 1890, or 41:71
per cent. The new industrial plants estab
lished since October 6, 1890, up to October
22, 1892, as partially reported in the Ameri
can Economist, number 345, and the exten
sion of existing plants 108. The new capital
invested amounts to $40,449,050, and the
number of additional employes to 37,285.
NEW FACTORIES BUILT.-
The Textile World for July, 1892, states,
that during the first six months of the nresent
calendar year 135 new factories were built, of
which 40 are cotton mills, 48 knitting mills,
26 woolen mills 15 silk mills, 40 plush mills,
and 2 linen mills. Of the 40 cotton mills, 2T
have been built in the Southern states. A.
B. Shepperdson, of the New York cotton ex
change, estimates the number of working
spindles in the United States September I,
1892, at 185,000,000, an increase of 660,000
over the year 1891. The consumption of
coiton oy tne American mills in 1891 was
2,396,000 bales. From 1869 to 1892, in
clusive, there has been an increase in the
consumption of cotton in Europe of 92 per
cent, while during the same period the in
crease of consumption in tbe United States
has been about 15 per cent
THE TIN- PLATE INDUSTRY.
The report of Ira Ayer, special agent of the
treasury department, shows that September
30, 1092, there were 32 companies man u lac
toring tin and tin-plate in the - United States.
and 14 companies building new works for
sucn manntacture. I be estimate ot tbe in
vestments in buildings at the close of the fis
cal year, June 30, 1892, if existing 'conditions
were to be counted, was $5,000,000, and the
estimated rate of production 200,000,000
pounds per annum. The actual productySn
for the quarter ending Scptembet , 30 1892,
was 10,952,725 ponnds.
