WHY GOLD IS EXPORTED.
In the discussion consequent upon
the recent- gold shipments to Europe,
coupled with the banks in exchanging
their legal-tender notes, and the pat
riotism displayed thereby, says the N.
Y.-Posli there is one question which
seems to be overlooked and upon which
" the whole thing turns.. It is this: To
whom does the money belong which is
being shipped in gold to Europe? Peo
ple, generally do not pay money unless
they owe it. Of course charitable and
patriotic and philanthropic individuals
may contribute of their abundance to
help causes of these kinds; but to say
J. , t . I.!
mat tneioreign oanKera nave any wing,
to do with sending the srold to Europe,
except as agents, is all nonsense. The
whole question turns upou the owner
. a (J
ship of the money, and hence rises the
query, To whom does the money be
long? Either it is due by parties in
the United States to people in Europe
for goods or securities bought, or it has
been sent here in times gone by for
.employment because it 'paid a better
rate of interest than could be obtained
in Europe. The owners can now get
their money back at about the same
ate they sent it; but if the currency
gets to a silver basis, so the gold (he
English sent here at S4.S6 to the
pound sterling is returned to them at
$5.50 or $6 to the pound to get it
back; or in case of French money that
cost them only five francs to the dol
lar, and when they sent it back only
getting four francs to the dollar, they
say, "We will call our money home
while we can get five francs for every
dollar, rather than wait for the money
here to be only silver and worth four
francs to the dollar a loss of 20 per
cent," So they order the foreign bank
era where they have their funds de
. posited to send it back, and they do
so. As to being able to ascertain the
"amount of money belonging to people
in Europe, which is held here by the
foreign bankers, it would be impossi
ble; but the fact of their shipping so
much gold to Europe shows that a
very large amount of the money in
- Wall street belongs to the people in
Europe, who are calling it home lest
the United States should go to a sil
ver basis and they would only get. 80
per cent, on the dollar for their money.
. SOLDIER PENSIONERS.
' A Democratic fusilade was made
yesterday on pension legislation, and
the attack was led by Gorman and
Palmer After each general election
a spasm of economy seizes the Democ
racy, and its first' efforts to decrease
public expenses appears to be directed
towards the pension list and the next
asainst the river and harbor bill. It
may be that the nation has been too
generous in providing for thos who
received wounds or became perma
nently incapacitated from other causes
during the civil cr previous wars; bu
mistaken generosity is more readily
excused than apathetic penuriousness.
That he who fights the battles of his
country for the small pittance of $13
or $15 a month, and risks his life and
limb in defense of the flag, ia entitled
to the gratitude of the nation no pa
triot will deny. It was by reason . of
this self-sacrificing loyalty to the gov-
' . " t i 1 TT!i. J C - . '
eminent mat me umtea oiaies occu
pies the proud position she does to
day, and if, in the fulfillment of this
duty, the soldier is rendered unable to
earn a living, it would be base ingrati
tude to allow him to starve or become
a public charge. There are many,
perhaps, who never saw a hostile
foe in battle, and who lurked around
places of safely when danger was imminent,-
on the pension list; but it is
.very aimcuic w guara agarose mese as
they carefully cover all evidence of
fraud. The general principle of pen
sions to disabled soldiers is commend
able, and one which this nation ought
to uphold; but it would work no in
jury to deserving subjects to have a
searching investigation of the pension
list, and strike from it those who
. i r 1 1 i ii i - , . . e . 1
government. Year by year the num
ber becomes less, and before another
decade has passed in the' history of the
nation, pensioners of the revolutionary
struggle will have gone to their long
home, there will be but few Mexican
war veterans, and the ranks of those
who fought in the, last war will be
tninned ny answers to tbe nnal roll
call. 'But the time will never come
when the soldier should be forgotten,
and the maimed and emaciated heroes
of the great struggle be allowed to be
fed or clothed, by public charity.
COBDEN : AND It KIN LET..
- It does not follow from- the failure
of a man in public life to manage bis
private affairs with profit that he is
devoid of business ability, says the In
ter Ocean. Richard Cobden, who was
to the free-traders of Great Britain
what Governor McKinley has been to
the protectionists of the United States,
was a man of remarkable business
ability. Beginning with nothing at
all, he placed himself in possession of
an annual income estimated at $40,
000 before he bad reached his 30th
year. But as soon as he went into
parliament politics absorbed him so
completely as to divert his attention
from his manufacturing business, which
fell into a state of decay. A sense of
justice and gratitude led these Eng
lishmen who had made millions during
the period of remarkable, though but
temporary, prosperity that followed
the adoption of his policy of free-trade,
to contribute and present him with the
noble sum of $400,000. It was upon
the interest of this that he lived dur
ing the last twenty-five years of his
life. .. V '
Governor McKinley's business abil
ity is not impeached by recent events.
Aj Cobden gave all his time and mind
to the advancement of what in his day
was "the English idea" of political
economy, so McKinley has given all
his time and mind to the advancement
of what was, and what, as wo believe,
still is and ever will be, the American
idea. In each case this devotion to
what appeared to each to be the public
weafled to shipwreck of a private for
tune. .In Oobden's case tho British
people insisted hat no such disaster
should cause hi& withdrawal from pub
lic life. In McKinley's case we be
lieye that the American people will
refuse to permit his retirement from
the public service.
POLITICAL CONVERTS. .
Democracy appears to offer pre
miums on all turn-coats who will join
its ranks, and if there are any wcfU
out Republican politicians who desire
fame it is only necessary for them to
announce the fact that they have allied
themselves with the Democratic party.
Of late vears it has shelved those who
have stood by the principles of the
party through evil as well as good re
port, and rewarded the treachery of
those who have attached themselves to
it for sinister motives. . David B.
Hill, a Democrat of Democrats, could
not receive a cabinet position; but
Gresham, a life-long Republican, was
made the chief minister in the new
cabinet. The words of Palmer are
considered as oracles of wisdom, and
his Democracy dates from recent years.
Horace Greeley spent the best years of
his life abusing tbe Democratic party,
and in his dotage was placed at the
head of the ticket as its choice for
president. When Andrew Johnson
attempted to change the administra
tion of national affairs inaugurated by
Abraham Lincold, he was applauded
by the Democracy. And the plan of
idolizing turn-coats has been adopted
with Carl Schurz, -George William
Curtis and several others. The hon
est expression of Senator Hill in the
midst of so much fulsome flattery of
mugwumps "I am a Democrat,"
sounds refreshing, even if it was ut
tered by one whose political principles
we cannot endorse. Honor and in
tegrity of purpose are to be admired in
enemies; but for a great political party
to flatter and applaud every disgrun
tied office seeker who comes to -its fold
"for .revenue only" is simply disgust
ing. The David B. Hills in Demo
cratic ranks are relegated to the rear,
and the. Greshams and Palmers are
placed in the front. ' '
John W. Mackay, of San Francisco,
must be considered in the list of those
against ffhooi the "unfortunate poor"
have a grievance. He is very wealthy.
and this was considered a 'Sufficient
crime for Wesley C. Rippey to make
a target of him for a pistol ball yes-.
terday. ' The wound is not necessarily
fatal, but Rippey, who emptied an
other chamber in himself, is fatally
injured.. With lawyers, doctors, and
even among editors, the accumulation
of money appears to be the acme of
ambition, and yet when this object is
accomplished it places one, in the un
enviable position of being liable to be
shot down without a moment's warn
ing. Sage, Frick and Mackay are the
illustrious trio who have Buffered
within the past year for being suc
cessful in the object aud aim of nine
tenths of the population of the coun
try. Perfect happiness is not attain
able without wealth, and the possession
of money seems to be a heinous crime
to those wh'o are less fortunate.
The Atlanta Constitution says "the
sooner the Democratic party moves
against the McKinley tariff on the
lines of its platform the better it will
be for the country and the party."
We hope this sentiment will be. en
dorsed by the Democratic press
throughout the country, for Republi
cans have great confidence that the
test of free-trade' for four years will
make the United States solidly Re
publican for the next quarter of a
century. The McKinley law has been
tested, and the result has been an in
crease of tho wages paid to employes in
every department of productive in
dustry, and tbi.8 has bean proved by
the figures of . Democrats. Republi
cans desire to see free-trade inaugu
rated, so that the people can be made
to understand by practical experience
what'a blunder they made last Nov
ember. ' .
A Democratic exchange has the
effrontery . to state, in speaking of
Governor McKinley's misfortunes,
that "he was the author of legislation
that robbed .the workingmen o: this
country of millions of dollars." Such
a statement would be audacity if it
were not so utterly false. It has been
proved by Democratic statisticians that
under the operations of tbe McKinley
law wages were increased in every de
partment of industrial employment in
the country, and the purchasing power
of money was higher than ever before.
It is indisputable evidence of an entire
disregard for truth and decency for an
editor whether he be Democrat or
Populist to make such an assertion
in the face of Peck's report in New
York and Pelle' in Indiana, and when
the honesty of Major McKinley haa
made him a bankrupt. -
The speaker of the . Republican
house in North Dakota is reported to
have joined the Democracy because
the Republicans in thht legislature did
not suit his ideas of political pro
priety. It must be apparent to this
fellow that the Republicans of North
Dakota do not constitute the soul and
body of thn party, and he must give a
more intelligent excuse for his treach
ery than this subterfuge before he can
prove his honesty of purpose. Such
partisans have little attraction to
wards any political organization, and
add little strength to the party to
which they are attached. They con
sider their ' politics the same as their
olothing something that should be
changed at the dictation of popularity
, or to follow the freaks of fashion.
DEHOCRACT AT THE HELM.
To-morrow Grovrr Cleveland will
be inaugurated president of the United
States, and tbe Democratic party will
regain possession of both the upper
and lower houses of congress This
will be the first time for thirty-two
years that that party has had control
of the administration of national af
fairs, and the government over which
they assume control is strong in every
regard. In finances it is on an abso
lutely sound basis, and tbe industrial
policy pursued has been such that has
opened new avenues of employment
and increased the wages of bread-winners.
When the Republicans came in
power in 1861 a giant effort was being
made to dismember the union, human
slavery existed in. the southern states
and the national treasury was bank
rupt Tbe party taking the reins of
government under such overwhelming
difficulties bad an herculean task to
perform, but it was equal to the emer
gency. Rebellion has been nuppressed,
slavery abolished and the national
cr?dit established abroad. Prosperity
marks every branch of labor and trade,
and the people never had more confi
dence in the permanency of free insti
tutions. During the past thirty years
great questions of international polity1"
have been solved, and the result has
been, in every instance, to strengthen
The people may again call on tbe
Republican party in 1896 to take the
administration of affairs, for the vote
of last November was ' not a well-considered
verdict of the incompetency of
Mr. Harrison or of his partisans to
manage affairs, but can be interpreted
in no other manner than a simple de
sire for a change. After four years of
trial, without Democracy become
Republicanized, thn country will re
sume its old attachment for the party
of progrers and patriotism. Tbe or
ganizuiuu still possesses the same ele
ments of strength it did in 1861, when
it successfully grappled with secession
and slavery, and will never die while
tbsre is a necessity for reformation.
No president was ever inaugurated
under so favorable auspices as Mr.
Cleveland will be to morrow.' Peace
and prosperity in every portion of the
land, and - no international entacgle
meats. This has been accomplished
by the wisdom of Republican states
men, and the record of the party is a
sufficient refutation of any charges
which may "be made.
Spring ha fairly beg'uu in this lo
cality, and it promises to be one of the
most prosperous of any experienced by
The Dalles for many years. To keep
abreast of the flood-tide of prosperity
which will spread over the Dorthwest
this year it will be necessrry to call
into existence a greater degree of enter
prise - than heretofore exhibited, and
the community which excels in
this will be very successful in growth
and development. The thousands of
foreigners which will visit this country
this year will come for tbe purposes of
investigation into our resources, and
the northwest offers many inducements.
Many of these foreigners will be capi
talists seeking opportunities for invest
ment, and their money will be used in
different avenues of industrial develop
ment. Our own state presents a good
field for capital, and almost any in
dustry inaugurated would insure good
returns to investors. Regarding situa
tion and- facilities for productive in
dustries The Dalles presents many ad
vantage, and with the development of
the state, will enjoy unprecedented
prosperity. At the head of naviga
tion, with an open river to the ocean,
and the great wheat belt of the Inland
Empire tributary to it, this city is yet
destined to be the great commercial
and manufacturing center of Eastern
Oregon. - ".

extravagant in its expenditures than
the previous one, and Democrats
should keep very still now about Re

retary Foster has been forced to guard
the output of gold for fear that there
would not be enough remaining to pay
the interest on the public debt. We
will not hear anything more about the
"billion dollar congress" from Demo
cratic sources, because the members of
that party have been wanting in that
element of economy which curtails ex
penses. The provisions of Mr. Manley's bill
provides for the levyig of taxes by the
city and district authorities, and abol
ishes municipal and school district as
sessors. City and district taxes are
extended opposite the state and county
taxes, and the collector receives them
at one time. Tbe great advantages of
this system are apparent to all, and in
older states experience bas-taugbt the
people the convenience of tbe plan.
One apparent benefit of, the new law
is that property will only be-appraised
once, and on this valuation all assess
ments will be made.
Democrats will soon have affairs at
the national capital completely under
their control, and will have the presi
dent, cabinet and both houses of con
gress of their political affiliations. All
misfortunes, hereafter, of a national
character,' will be directly chargeable
to the Democracy, and Republicans
will not be slow to avail themselves of
the privilege of being critics. Th
salvation of the country is now in the
hands of Democrats, and if they do
not remedy existing evils the sovereign
people will pass an adverse verdict on
them at tbe ballot-box in 1896.
The annexation "of Hawaii is not
meeting with general favor in the sen
ate, and, very likely, will be defeated.
At first the country appeared to be al
uost unanimous in favor of it; but on
sober second thought a different view
is taken of tbe matter. The Sandwich
Islands, with their Chinese, Kanakas
ami lepers, is a plague-stricken para'
dise, and congress will accomplish
more for the people bv developing tbe
country now under the flag than by
grasping more territory. As a re

Washington, Feb. 23 There are more
than 53 appointments, recently made by
President Harrison, which have not yet
been acted upon by tbe senate, nor can
they be acted upon until there Is an txei

with the aid ot tbe Populists and ods or
two skulking Republicans, have -been
able to vote down motions for an exe

can not be reached. It is also unfortu

two mere dangerously. Shortly after mid
night a heavy wind sprang up, increasing to
a gale, then almost to a hurricane. At Hal
stead and Nineteenth streets stood the store
wall of John York's dry-goods house, re
cently gutted by fire. Part of the walls were
left standing, and on these the proprietor be
gan to rebuild. The walls, which had
reached a height of five stories, were still
green and insufficiently braced. They gave
way before the tornado, and fell with a deaf
ening crash about 1:30 o'clock this morning
on the two-story structure adjoining, occu
pied as a dwelling by the family of John
Schmidt, a saloon-keeper, and William Kunz,
a jeweler. The great mass of bricks and
mortar crushed the structure like an eggshell
and the occupants with it.

morning a fatal altercation took place in A.

Wassom, son of Jonathan vVassom, a wealthy
and respected Linn county pioneer living at
Lebanon, had been drinking in another sa
loon in the place. He entered Grubbe's sa
loon and took two or three drinks with
Grubbe. W. A. Carrol, a commercial man
of San Francisco, and J. Mossholder, a team
ster, of. Lebanon, quarreled with Grubbe,
who asked them to go out. Grubbe followed
Wassom to the door. Wassom pulled a pis
tol and fired, hitting Grubbe just below the
heart, killing him almost instantly. Coroner
Farrel and Attorneys Vyatt and Weatherford,
to prosecute and defend, from this place, were
sent for. The coroner's jury returned a ver
dict in accordance with the facts. Wassom
had an examination and was held without
bail. He is about 35 years old, single and
well to do. Grubbe was well liked. He
had a wife and three children. He came
from Kansas five years ago, and was re
spected there. He has served as city mar
shal in Lebanon.
Drowned In the F ooda.
Vienna, Feb. 28 A terrible calamity has
overtaken the village of Gergely, near Paks,
Hungary. Owing to a sudden rise in the
Danube, its 1600 inhabitants were foreed to
flee from their mud huts to the church and
school. The advancing waters finally com
pelled them to flee from these retuges or be
drowned in them. When they turned out
again, the flood surged nearly to their waists.
The children and infirm were assisted by the
stronger as they struggled along towards Paks,
with the waters continually rising. First one,
a mother with five children, gave up, sank
and perished in the flood. Those were lol
lowed by many others, the number of whom
is unknown, and the survivors reached Pans
in an exhausted, pitiable plight. No doubt
the number drowned is very large. The
people of Paks are deeply concerned for
their own safety, as the "Danube is 20 teet

To Annex Utah Wiita Nevada.-
Chktennb, Wyo , March 1. Senator
Stewart's project to annex Utah with
Nevada meets with great favor here so
far as it relates to tbe disappearance ot
Utah as a territory. Leading men of
Wyoming have long cherished a hope
tbat tbe eastern part cf Utah, mclud'ng
Salt Lake City aud Ogden, and much
orchard, pasture, fsrming and mineral
land m'ght become a pait 01 Wyoming.
This claim on behalf of this state will be
advanced and pressed when Senator
Stewart moves -with . bis cheme. Wy
oming and Utah are friendly. Most of
the immigration to tbe western part of
this Btate is from the territory, and there
are several large Mormon settlements in

"Tbe liviog generation is tood of com
paring the monarchist traditions of the
past with the present reg me, to tbe d.i
advantage of ttie Utter. This is a frui'
iess task. Let us look back npon tbe

deavor to become worthy ot our ancesters'
deeds. I myself hope to establish a
state of things with which all utruian
wtiO des.re 10 be content will be con
tented. I hope that tbe good will of my
people will strengthen my resolution, al
though I know that it will be impossible
to satisfy everybody."
