Tho new senator will begin their
legislative careers by unking such
senators as huvo seen the shortest ser
vice to combine with them for a re-organization
of the force of senate em
ployees. The civil service system has
so restrict d tho number of offices
available for rewarding folkwers that
a new deal is demanded, , Old senators,
like Edmunds, Allison, Sherman and
Hoar, ha gobbled up all the offices
in sight and thir followers have hold
them for a score of years. Senatorial
courtesy in this matter, as in others,
is bound to lecive a rude shock. The
present oftievrs of.tlie senate mo great

the states interoslod in the Philadel

Americas exposition has issued a cir
cular, urging all the citizens of tho
District of Columbia to bign a memo

World's Fair in 1892. The inemorjftl
proposes tho issuance of $ 15,000,000

Tho attompt of Delegate Hall, of
England, and his associates to ruu the
Maritime Couferonue to suit them
selves was defeated by the combination
of tho United States and rt.tuth Ameri

shocked and grieved that any body of

have to supersede its authority. They
did finally consent to enter the con

These settled they would refuse fur

of affairs reached the ear of Ixml Sal

Butlor-Stiong legal wrangle is a fam

against Mr. Strong several months
ago for a considerable sum of money,
which he asserted was duo him as con

Mr. Strong. The suit had sonic high
ly spicy features, among which was
tho production of a document, pur
porting to bo signed by Gen. Butler,
in which ho agreed to accept a much
smaller sum than that claimed in the
suit. Gen. Butler denounced this doc
uinenfas a forgery, and Mr. Strong

An Answerto "W'a" Rjcent Article oa
This Wooly Question.
Cove. Or.. Dee. II, 1SS0,
EniTou Okkuo.v Scout:
In the last issue of Tin: Scout I Miw
a communication .signed "W."in which
he says the protection on wool is a fa1--lacy.
The democrats during tho campaign
of 1SSS objected to being called free
traders, but since the last election their
talk and articles are all for free trade;
they proclaim it from east to west,
no matter whether it is called tarilf
for revenue or tariff reform, it signifies
no protection to American industry.
Thoro is a sample of this kind of tarilf
on tin plate, and England is furnish
ing all we use. If wo had a tarilf that
did protect, we would make tin plate
here, and pay a large por cent of the
30,000,000 that now goes to English
workmen to Americans, giving about
40,000 men employment and keeping
them from competing for our places,
giving them money to purchase goods,
and other men the work of making
Who wants free trade? Tho labor
ing man? No; they are Hocking from
free trado countries to got tho benefits
of the tariff. Do business men want
it? No; they understand that labor
pauperized will not benefit thom. Do
tho farmers want it? No; they need
their products protected more, Who
then docs want it? England, tho im
porters, the bond holders, tho misgui
ded South and democratic politicians.
They want anything that will be mon
ey in their pockets. They want it re
gardless of pauperizing tho working
man, and taking children from school
and putting them in work shops, and
huvo this liko England, a government
of classes. England does not care, and
why should it if wc don't know
enough to make our ballots protect us
wh'on the tarilf makes us tho best paid
laborers in the world?
Tho freight from this state to Now
York on goods and produco is greater
than it is from Liverpool to Now York.
Consequently a tariff for rnvenuo only
means less pay for us than they got in
Liverpool, or no work. Comparo tho
statistics of paupers officially given in
1880. England had ono to ovory thirty-three
inhabitants; America, one' to
every five hundred and sixty-five, and
Europo sont us a largo por cent of
thom. And yet wo learn that tho tar
iff is robbing us.
Tho democratic administration un
dertook to show us that with wool on
tho freo list, wo would lose money
on tho wool that wo sell and get rich
on tho clothes which wo .buy. It
would seem to bo a now discovery, an
overturning of all ideas of commerce
to lose money on that which wo have
to sell, but got rich on that wo buy.
That is not customary nowadays. My
idea is that "W" or anyone else would
never becomo a bloated bond holdor in
that way, yet, as I understand it, that
is Grover Cleveland's plan.
Brazil seeks in European markots
for tho wares sho desires becauso Eu
ropean prices aro lower than ours, and
they aro lower for no other reason than
that tho wages paid European laborers
aro lower than tho wages paid Ameri
can laborors, and of course wo aro go
ing to got the world's commerce, and
hold it, the first thing to do is to forco
down the wages of tho American work
man ; to force them not only down to
tho European lovel, but below them,
because wo must undersell these ri
vals of ours if wo must soizo and hold
tho markets of which wo aro now su
premo. Thoreforo if congress is to
legislate at all concerning tho matter,
it must begin by legislating to roduco '
tho wages of American workingmen
until thoy aro lower than European
wages, and if European wages should
bo forced furthor down, then measures
must bo adopted to push ours still
downward toward tho labor prices of
China. And the chances that an
American congress will ongago in such
ruinous Tom-foolery aro so small that
"W's" grand children will bo gray
headed beforo any intelligent human
being in congress over thinks of 6uoh
a Bchomo as worthy a moment's atten
tion. J, G.
