Washington. July 1M, 1S!)1.
Editoh Ohkoon Scout:
Mr. J. F. Tillman, who, with Dr.
Macino and Alonzo Wnrdell, is
charged with looking after the execu
tive business of tho national fanners'
alliance, is in town. He has just re
turned from Indianapolis, whore he
has been on official business. In an
swer to a question he said : "It is
highly probable that Indianapolis will
bo chosen for our national convention
on the 17th of next November. The
date was lived at tho Oeola meeting,
but the selection of thu place was loft
to the executive board. I think wo
shall choose Indianapolis because of
its central location, and because there
will be in that city at tho sumo time
the convention of tho Farmers' Mutu
al Benefit Association, winch is a very
strong agricultural order in Illinois
and other Northern slates. Probably
a consolidation may bo effected by the
alliance with that organization at tho
coming convention." Being asked
whether this convention would decide
upon the propriety of nominating and
supporting a presidential ticket, Mr.
Tillman replied : "Certainly not. The
alliance is not a political body. It
cannot go into partisan politics. Its
members may vote as they choose,
with either of tho old parties or a new
one, but it doesn't hold meetings to
set political machinery in motion."
Mr. W. F. Thomas, of Topcka, Kan
sas, who is a railroad lawyer and not
at all in sympathy with tho alliance
movement, in his state, stated huro
that ho regarled it as curtain that the
alliance would support a presidential
ticket, of their own next year, and that
unless a great change of sentiment
takes placo that th-y will probably
carry the stale.
In a conversation between a number
of prominent Southern democrats
here, among whom were Ex-Senator
Hampton and Representative Oates, it
was admitted that South Carolina,
North Carolina, Alabama and Georgia
would in all probability cast their
electoral votes for a third parly, if the
fanners' alliance should formally en
dorse the third party movement
Some of the gentlemen present thought
that it should be the policv of the
democratic party in the South' to con
ciliate and as far as possible work with
the allianco, but Mr. Oates and seveial
others advocated making war upon
tho allianco and ovorytbing it advo
cates, except the free coinage of silver
ine nuest movo in 1110 uino cam
paign is much talked of here, inus
much as it involves a member of tho
cabinet aud presumably tho entire
administration, and it is also taken as
an acknowledgement that tho allianco
opposition lo Senator Sherman is too
strong to be overcome. The move re
furred .to is tho somi-oflicial announce
ment that, in case of tho withdrawal
of Senator Sherman, Secretary Foster
is to becomo a candidate for the sen
ato in opposition to Gov. Foraker, that
is, if tho republicans succeed in elect
ing a majority of thu legislature.
In spite of tho most positive denials
tho Blaino people still insist that
many of tho outrageous stories about
Mr. Blaine's condition which have
recently appeared in thu newspapers,
have been originated or inspired by the
frie;ids of Mr. Harrison for tho purpose
of killing of! Mr. Blaine us a possible
candidate. No one charges that Mr.
Harrison, who is generally believed to
.have bad a perfect understanding
about next year with Mr. Blaine, has
had anything to do with this dirty
business, but it must be confessed that
he has some very indiscreet friends

The committee appointed by Secre
tary Foster to investigate tho charges
made by the executive committee of
thu Knights of Labor that inferior
supplies were used by thu superin
tendent of the bureau of engraving
and printing which cost more than

has reported that the charges aro
untrue and without foundation. Mr.
Hays, of the K. of L. executive com
mittee, declined to appear befoie the

against the K. of L., was not lemoved

, , ' , 1
1-1 correspondents, which is as follows:
Weather. Tho week has been warm,
though theio has been an absonce of
excessively warm days. The niaxi-
mum temperature ranged from 55 to
0i) degrees. The Willds have been
generally northerly and of light veloc
ity. On the :10th a few drops of rain
foil, in sections sullieient to lay tho
dust. The weather bus been irenerallv
cloudless, with light smoko appearing.
Crops. Fall wheat is nearly all cut
and shocked. Threshers will begin
operations next week. Reports all
indicato that the fall wheat was never
better both as to quality and quantity.
Spring wheat is being cut in places
Bust in Douglass county has seriously
affected spring wheat. Spring oats
aro being cut in places; somo early
oats aro being delivered and a report
from Corvallis says that it weighs 100
pounds to the sack. Some young
orchards were injured by the extreme
heat of tho 23rd. All reports indicate
that tho 23rd was tho warmest day on
record. Hop lice have developed rap
idly in tho past ten days and serious
results aro feared from them. Tho
codlin moth's ravages continue
South un Oregon fruit is better than
that of tho valley counties, that is, more
plentiful and more free from insects
In Curry county 5 and (5 tons of clover
hay to tho aero was secured; timothy
hay averaged 3 tons to tho aero.
Weather. Warm weather lias con
tinued and no rain is reported to liavo
lallen. J ho maximum temperaturo
ranged from 85 to 100 dcgiecs; tho
minimum temperature ranged from (50
to 70 degrees. Fow clouds havo been
seen, ami smoke ib appearing in tho
Crops. Tho weather conditions
have been favorable to tho wheat har
vest which is in full operation. As
was expected thu wheat has never
been better, both as to quantity and
quality. In sections of Wasco and
Umatilla counties thu wheat is gener
ally poor and this year is no exception
Shorman county has an extra good
crop, larger than over before. Morrow,
Gilliam, Shorman, and Wasco conn
ties will ship about 1,300,000 bushels
of wheat. Last year these counties
shipped 000,000 buBhcls. Umatilla
county has a remarkably lino crop; to
tho north and cast of Pendleton it is,
us usual, tho best. Union, Wallowa
and Baker counties havo fino pros
pects; in theso counties tho harvest is
later than in tho previous mentioned
counties. Throughout this section
tho hay crop is tho largest on record.

Editor Oiikoox Scout:
One J. Young Brown is quoted in
your last issuo us explaining "Tariff in
a Nutshell." Ho says: "Suppose
(nolo tho proposition closoly) I could
manufacture in Hart county millions
and millions of woolen hats and sell
thoin at a profit by placing the liguro
at $2.00 each. A man in Great Brit
am, say, could nianuiucturo tho same
and sell at tho sumo price. If there
were no tariff ho could ship his goods
horo and outer into competition with
mo. That would ho fair and the trado
would lio open to all. But there is a
tariff on wool of 70 per cent and tho
foreigner who would want to sell his
hats horo would havo to sell them at
$3.10 in order to make a profit. This
tariff of 70 percent allows Brown to sell
his hats at $3.00 and tho competitor is
shut out. Now who gots that dollar?
It doesn't go into tho pocket of the
government, but it does go into tho
pocket of Brown, and tho inultitudo
who buy hats aro out just that much"
With your permission wo would
offer for consideration a fow remarks
on Mr. Brown's frco trade proposition.
Ho can sell a certain article of hats at
$2.00 and niako a good profit, but tho
tariff will allow him $3.00. Bight
horo, Mr. Brown, you aro wrong, as
your many thousand Amorican com
petitors will not allow any such trade
No wholesaler can sell in this country
an inferior article of hats at such
profits. Brown knows it, I know it,
and so does everybody olso of average
mental capacity. It is not tho tariff
then that fixes tho price to any great
uxtont, hut your countrymen at homo,
Mr. Brown, who uro always ready and
willing to fill cash orders at remarka
bly cut rates. Again, Brown's mag
nanimous: and gonorous brothorly fool
ing for poor, opprosscd foreigners
assorts itself bucatuu tho tariff works a
hardship upon him. Hardship) A
man in Great Britain could manu
facture hats and tsoll thorn in this
country at thu same price
You are strictly correct, Mr. Brown.
No doubt in thu world of it. Ho could
manufacturo those hats at so niuuh
less it figure than you could possibly
do, that your "hoad would w!m" 011
being informed of thu actual cost of
production. And why so, Mr. Brown?
You aro aware, as well as all of our
American folks, that the prime causo
ig pauper labor, nothing else. Brown
wants fair and honorable competition,
and the question arises, do you find it
in the above proposition? On account
of 70 (tor cent tariff our foreign friends
i could not sell their c'ifap labor hah
! here under $.'U0 each and m :ko a
profit, and Hrown wails for.-oo h tho
same tatiif allows him $3.01) per hat.
If '.ho tariff regulates tho price, Brown's
modesty should not allow him lo re
fuse to take that extra 40 cent a- well
us 1 he dollar. If Mr. Biown wishes to
j run his hat shoo on .t cheap labor

, be compelled 10 set still another price

I "Sparc that tree (tariff); touch not a
In youth it aided us, and we'll vole to
pioteet it. now."
Brown's assertion is only a nupposi
tion to start on, and facts and figures
do not bear him out in it. Competi
tion among American manufacturers
sot the price on huts, Mr. Brown, and
your free trade doctrine don't go
down with a large majority of Ameri
can voters. Free trade means chi'ap
labor and cheap labor means a de
struction of our American industries,
so hero -you have it in a nutxhell so
that ho who runs may read and not
err (herein. Moreover that obnoxious
tariff is tho safeguard of our hat fac
tories, by which Mr. Brown would bo
enabled to stay in the business at all,
for peradvonturo it were removed and
the fioodgntes opened, tho nuelstrom
! that would ovoitako Brown's factorv
would certainly paralyze him. In
stead of dictating a profit of $1.00 or
$1S.00 por dozen on hats at wholesale,
(pocketing extra dollars, etc.) wo opino
ho would ho calling for the rocks and
mountains to full upon him for being
so short-sighted in knocking out his
Free trade has been demonstrated
in the United States, and anyone can
thoroughly inform himself in regard to
tiiu disadvantages afforded thoreby
from official statistics, and not bo led
away by such sophistry and nonsensi
cal propositions, laid down by profes
sional politicians, as set forth. Any
rustic well knows (hero is no tariff
paid on wool raised at homo, and as 11
very great preponderance ib homo
production, tariff rates would not lig
uro to any alarming extent in fixing
prices by manufacturers. An Eng
lishman pays for a woolen hat at homo

ple and sold to us, hut once givo him 11
monopoly of our markets by free trado,
with pauper labor, and then (hat ox
tra dollar profit will bo beaten out of
sight by tho Britisher, as ho will sot
tho prico aud wo will hu compelled to
pay it as we should.
Brown's ovor-unxioty to share his
overcharges with a foreign market is
of an unusual charactor and clearly
demonstrates his noblo magnanimity.
Browns of liko caliber ivro exceedingly
scarce, at least in Eastorn Oregon.
Tho interest manifested by foreigners
in American politics is a solf evident
proposition that they aro pxtromoly
anxious that Mr. Brown's idea of lib
erality should ho adoptetl, and aro
