City and County Official Paper.
Thursday, Dec. 2G, 1889.
. It may have been noticed by eomo
of our readers Hint u slight unpleasant
ness hns existed between Ilev. S. M.
Driver and oursclf for several weeks
past. Kogurding this matter wo will
say that the gentleman, whom wo had
never before met in person, called on
us this week and wo had a candid re
view of the' whole matter. Mr. Driver
assured us that whatever the impress
ion may have been, that was made up
on the congregation by his words, it
was not his intention to insult us or
to abuse us as an individual ; Hint ho
thought wo hnd us much right to ex
press our views as an infidel as ho had
to express his as a christian, nnd be-
causo a uuierencc exists between us
was no reason why wo photild engage
in war and hlttbi- personalities. In
this wp entirely ngrco with him. . Wo
certainly thought that thd language,
which it .was reported to us that ho
had used, justified us in tho course wc
pursued. If Mr. Driver's statement is
truo thoso roports were greatly exag
erated and his language misconstrued.
While quick to resent what wo deem
an insult, no man would bo slower in
repulsing tho hand of an opponent
when ottered in a spirit of amity and
reconeilliation, or more willing to cor
rect an error, when convinced that
one has boon made. Wo doubt not
that Mr. Driver and ourself will got
along quito peacefully hereafter. It
may bo that tho animal nature in
neither ono of us is dovoloped to such
an extent as to unfit us for tho society
of our fellow beings.

Tho business outlook for Union, as
the approach of a now year draws near,
is exceedingly bright and cheerful and
every indication points to a rapid in
crease with tho now year. Now busi
ness uro seeking locations, now build
ings aro being decided upon, now en
terprises looking for openings and a
general now infusion of blood and en
ergy in all directions is apparent, which
is especially gratifying. Willi tho be
ginning of 18U0 wo may expect to bo
fairly started in tho direction of an en
ergetic display of business vigor, which
will make a most favorable showing
before tho year is ono-third advanced.
Tbero is enough outlined in tho way of
progress to demonstrate that tho com
ing year will bo tho most prosperous in
tho history of Union, and it may bo
safely estimated that tho population
will double itself in tho next twelve
months, judging from tho present

President Harrison recommends
mail subsidies for ocean stoamship
lines. This is to beeoino a font tiro of
tho republican policy that will fitly go
with protection of tho industry of tho
country. It is u policy to bo put in
contrast with tho democratic policy of
inertia and mossbaekisni. Oregonian.
A policy of high protective tiiritt' to
run steamship lines out of existence,
nnd subsidies to bring (hem bad;. A
tariil' to koop foreign goods out of our
ports, and subsidies to bring thorn in.
Will it bo tho policy of tho republican
party to kill tho carrying trade of our
steamship linos by a continuanco of
tho tariff, and pay thorn to run empty?
Tariil' and subsidies! twin robbers of
tho producing classes. This maintain
anco will truly never bo called "inertia
and mossbaekisni" but ratlior onorgol

Fkkj: tobacco and heavily taxed
clothing and food. Tho president says
lio would remove tho tax from tobacco
and spiritH used in tho artH, but would
leave tho high tarill'tax on tho farm
er's juto sacks and binding twine, on
tho necessary clothing and food of tho
laboring man and mechanic. What
do farmers and labor people who wero
cajoled into voting for Harrison last
fall thiilk of this proposition to niakn
tobacco, a luxury, free, while main
taining a high ;tax on tho poor wo
man's blanket and shawl, and, in fact,
on all tho neccKsuiies of life. Jlut tho
pcoplo wero warned against this folly,
but thoy believed tho prebident would
uovcr recommend it. It is an oyo
Tun Union board of trade khould
moot at onco and make preparations
for active work. Buch a body is of in
calculable benefit to a town when 'in
good working order.
In a rei ent issuo of Tin: Sjoitt wo
undertook to show that tho tariff on
wool was no protection- to, the wool
grower. "J. u." in last wcok's focouT
refers to our letter, and 'without at
tempting to rcfuto any of our proposi
tions therein set forth, dishes us out
several doses broken most of which
have been hcrotQforo proscribed by the
Oregonian, from whore "3. G." no
doubt procures his medicine.
As ho has virtually admitted tho
wortli of tho conclusions reached in
our former lottor, wo shall devoto a few
lines to tho analysis of what ho has to
say, generally, on tho tarid' question.
Ho says on tho outsot that, "tho demo
crats talk and write articles for free
trade. Thoy proclaim it from east to
west, no matter whether it is called
tariil' for rovontio or tariff reform, it
signifies no protection to American in
dustry." Tariff for rovontio is free
trade; chicken pie is pork pio; a turkey
gobbler is a turkey hen ; black is white
and ix niggor is a whito man. A oloso
obsorvor of "J. G's" stylo of treatment
would no doubt conclude, and justly,
that ho had adopted that Hystom
known as christian s-cienco, und all tho
pationt must do is to believe n thing
no matter how absurd or unreasonable
it is and it is therefore truo. Nobody
advocates Jfrco trade nor will it bo ad
vocated by any considerable number
of our pcoplo until there is a radical
change in tho present avstom of col
lecting revenues. Any per cent of
taritf levied on imported goods of which
tho same kind aro manufactured in
our country, to that extent is a proteo
tion of our home manufacturer. Tint
principle is tho same no matter whoth
or tho rates bo high or low, general or

plato taxed so high that tho eouMtmors
of tin would reel as they trod tho
ground, in order to build up another
monopoly in this country in the manu
facture of tin plato. In tho interest of
tho farmer, tho mechanic, tho laborer
mid all others who aro obliged to and
do two a great many tin vossols, tin
ought to bo on the freo lisLand cheap
ened us much as possible. In tho in

".1. G." says, "tho laboring mon aro

Jehovah I llarvoy Scott outdone!
Laborers flocking from freo trade
countries! Germany, Italy, Franco,
thou art jewels in tho froo trado con
stellation. "J.G." is ontitlwl to tho
belt and a chromo bosidos. Do farm
ers want freo trade? "No, thoy nood
their products protected nioru." Ah,
that is just what thoy do, "J. G." and
pray how aro thoy going to gyt it? Is I
it within tho poficibilitios for fanners
to bo protected by means of a tariff on
their products? Answer that, "J. G."
and you can have another chromo.
