THURSDAY. KEPT. 10. 1891.
Kkank Lkb, of Centcrvillo, Wash.,
iornicrly editor of tho Klickitat Leadur,
has purohasud the Pacific Fanner, of
Porlland, and assumed control.
A iti:i'OUT comes from Garfield coun
ty, Washington, of a fanner beginning
his threshing ns fast as he cut his
grain, and that at noon he ate biscuits
tnado from Hour ground" from the
wheat cut and threshed in the morn
ing. Washington sets a pretty hard
pace, but it is well enough to wait for
tlio returns from Oregon before award
ing the palm to Garfield county. Ex.
Tiik president's talk of "an honef-t
dollar" is all very well, but in addition
to the dollars being honest in thum
f elves they should be honestly come
by. A dollar taken out of the pockets
uf a poor man, or for that matter,
of a rich man either, by the operation
of the robber tarifl' and put into the
treasury to bo squandered by a billion
dollar congress is not an honest dollar,
whether it bo made of gold, silver,
paper or wampum. Albany Democrat.
A man said the other day that de
mocracy had done nothing fur him
since the war. It ought to bo remem
bered that the democratic party has
not been in power since the war and
therefore has not boen in a position to
shape the policy of the country and its
legislation. Tlio democracy has done
the country good service by prevent
ing extreme and oppressive laws. The
democracy has been a successful
barrier against much vicious legisla
tion sought to bo enacted by the other
Tin: fact cannot be made too em
phatic, says the Kt. Paul Globe, that
the issue at the front next year must
bo tariff reform. In a recent inter
view .Senator Carlisle dwells upon this
as the great fact to bo impressed upon
the democratic mind. Ho would have
all other questions kept in aboyance,
and the light made equally on this
line. This policy should commend
itself to all democrats. It is the plat
form upon which there is entire una
nimity. East, west, north and south
there it) like enthusiasm and determi
nation to press this question. Other
measures can wait. Danger attends
any multiplication of the purposes
sought. It is the Hag to win under,
and the fact can hardly be imprinted
too strongly on the mind.
It ik quite significant that the re
publicans of Ohio are now attempting
to relegate the tarifl issue to the shade
and to bring the silver question up as
the loading one. MoKinloy and Kher
man in their speeches opening the
campaign devoted nearly all their time
to silver. The republican editors of
the state the other day held a meeting
at which it was resolved lo push the
silver question and to remain mute on
the tariff issue. This shows that they
are afraid of the growing sentiment in
favor of tarill' reform. Uut these gen
tlomeu will not be permitted to make
tho issue alone. It takes two parties
to make an issue, and the democrats
of that state will compel those honoii
ciarios of tho robber tariff to defend
themselves on the case they have
made. Albany Democrat.
It ih very important that our
county bo represented at tho Portland
Exposition and "Oregon on Wheols."
Only a few more days remain in which
our farmers can prepare an exhibit
for tho car and we trust they will not
lot this matter pass by unnoticed.

Grovcr Cleveland, while possessing
many peculiarities, is without doubt
the strongest democratic candidate for
president. He enjoys a wondeiful
reputation among the people and they
are the ones to be pleased in the elec
tion of a president. Democratic suc
cess in the next presidential election is
almost assured and while the nomina
tion of a candidate not having much
strength would cripple the chances of
success to a certain extent, the princi
ples of the democratic party and the
present issue between tho two great
parties are tho things that will elect a
democratic president. The people of
this great republic have great faith in
Grover Cleveland; they have tried
him and have not found him wanting.
Tliev know that he is opposed to ex
travagance in the administration of
tho government and against tho mo
nopoly interests of the country, be
cause ho lost tho the presidency in
1888 in a courageous attempt to save
the people from tho oppression of
monopoly and the exactions of the tax
gatherer. Whether or not he be the
candidate cannot bo settled until the
deleuates assemble in convention. In
them the people must put their trust.
The democratic party can not afford
to imperil the presidential contest of
1892 by running the risk of carrying
New York in 1891, therefore, the
World's project of running Grover
Cleveland as the democratic candidate
for governor of New York this fall in
order to test his popularity is ill ad
vised. His popularity is such that
this is not needed to demonstrate
it. Thin seems to be one of the deep
laid schemes of Hill to head the great
democrat off. Tho World is a pro
nounced Hill paper and anything of
this nature coming from it must be
taken with a grain of allowance.
Hill of course is oho of tho presiden
tial possibilities, but he is not as popu
lar with tho peoplo as Cleveland and if
he is nominated it will bo because of
the influence of Now York. He is tho
great political chief of the state, and
while the peoplo recognizo him as a
great man in politics, they seem loath
to trust the a Hairs of this great nation
to his keeping. Tlio popularity of a
person in Now York, so far as shown
by the vote, is largely controlled by
the political bosses who aro out for tho
money there is in it, so that tho mass
of figures givou by the Albany Times,
showing that Cleveland is not popular
in New York, can not bo taken to
mean much in the coming presiden
The inlluonco of Now York in tho
presidential struggles of the future will
not bo as great as in tho struggle of
tho past. The last election made a
great change in the center of political
strength and in the coming campaign
the battle field will bo moved to the
west. Tho groat light will bo made in
Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin
and Iowa. Tho battle field is now
being thoroughly looked over by tho
generals of both parties and all the
positions of advantage aro being taken.
The struggle will bo one of tho
greatest in political history, and should
tho victory go to tho democratic party
thoro will bo a now party organized
upon the ruins of the republican and it
will take years for it to become a polit
ical force. In this struggle lies the
salvation of tho supremacy of tho com
mon people of tho country. There is
no denying tho fact that the republi
can party has founded a system of
aristocracy based upon tho monoy
taken from tho eiruings of tho com
mon peoplo by the monopolistic tarifl".
This has made the theory of American
liberty almost a farce.
It ts estimated that tho damage to
the crops of Union county this season,
by rust, will bo about a half million
dollars. This is tho first time in tho
history of the county that our farmers
have been bothered with rust, and
while it will go pretty hard with some,
it should not discourage them in the
future. It may never occur again.
Crops that a few weoks ago promised
over an average yield will not turn out
more than one-half what was expected.
In some sections rust did not damage
much, hut taken altogether there will
not bo much more than half a crop of
marketable grain in Union county.
At Tin: last meeting of the council
the Republican was allowed $'1.75 for

In the campaign of last year in eup- (
port of the McKinley bill the republi- j
can leaders insisted that tho tariff is I
not a tax upon the consumer. i
Now they are pointing to sugar j
made cheaper by removing the duty '
and predicting a largely increased sale j
of our products in South America,
Cuba and San Domingo, because the
peoplo of those countries have been
relieved of the tariff taxes upon various
American articles of export.
Last year President Harrison and
Mr. McKinley inveighed against
cheapness, and declared that "a cheap
coat means a cheap man."
This year all the republican speakers
and organs are trying to show that
pretty much everything, including a
coat, is cheaper than before the new
tariff was passed.
Last year every protectionist news
paper declared that a higher tariff was
necessary in order to prevent tho
"flooding of the home market with

cares to be polite and talkathv to
