Our Bensef justice eomcrns to. com
pliment any v-ortby en'deavor, whether it
be in the quiet walks ot life, or even in a
position like your own, where each word

sway the great mass of struggling hu

friend we would have you think ns, it we
did not oeoaure you sometimes when we
believe you are wrong. In tbe past few
weeks it has been most gratifying to note
that you have given space in your paper
to ideas and principles which, it put into

tbe laboring element the backbone ot
every free nation on earth.
Our sinoere wish is that you will take
fresh onurage and step boldly into tbe
ring and fight during the coming cam
paign, for a better government.
Let your every effort be extended to
aeaure the election ot good men for the
various offices, county, stnte and nation

complexion. The "sublime doctrine of
equal rights to all" urges this issue. Tbe
people demand it, and as the champion
of the people you should throw your in
fluence in tbe direction whim will result
in the greatest good to tbe common peo
ple to American sovereigns. You may
feel discouraged sometimes, and think
that ingratitude is rbally not conducive
to further effort. However, you must
know that good works are never fully
paid lor in this cold world. Uur purse
is empty, but our heart is full of charity,
sympathy and kind feeling for you so
long ns yon are the representative of the

country, but there is ranch work to be
done, and your paper is the mimt formid

for beating down tbe barriers plaoed in
the way of buppinehs and prosperity of
the great mass of humanity by those

Kx-Seuator Sinter, democratic candi
date for representative in oongress from
the second district, had an experience
with tbe tariff question earlier than that
of Grover Cleveland.
Mr. Slater was senator from 1879 to
1885. His county, which bad always
been one of the strongest democratio
counties in the state, had stood by him
daring a long period. It bad presented
his name for representative in congress
and bad given him a large majority; it
was delighted to bave opportunity to
present bis name for senator in congress,
and it elected to tbe legislature men who
were pledged to support him, Mr. Slater
was tbe idol of Union oonnty and king of
Eastern Oregon.
But Eastern Oregon is very largely de
voted to sheep husbandry, and Mr. Sin
ter's bad judgment or bad luck, or both
combined, made him a pioneer in the
crusade for free trade in wool. He be

Grover Cleveland became known to fume,
possibly even before the Biiffitlo man was
sheriff.. Onoe embarked iu this career ol
errantry, Mr. Slater became one of the
fiercest enemies of the American sheep
ever known in our annals. John' liun
dolph, so in love with free trade that be
declared he would k out of his way a
mile any day to kick a sheep, was abler,
no doubt, than Mr. Slater, but not nior.
earnest. Mr. Slater made speeches in the
senate for free trade in wool, and deluged
Oregon with them. Ue came home be
tween sessions and talked free wool in
Union county and throughout Eastern
Oregou. The Oregon sheep had a sad
time of it.
Our statesman bad an ambition to be
re elected to the senate. It was not
illaudnble. Some mighty good men have
desired re-election. Mr. Slater made no
doubt that all Eastern Oregon would
stand by him. Ue bad always been a
great favorite tnsro. Not tor one mo
ment did he imagine that the sheep thai
roamed over the plains could disturb the
"ongtong oordwaul" between the voters
and himself. Nevertheless, oue day iu
June 1881, he heard news that gave him
a painful shook. Tbe legislature was re
publican. The sheep had found friends
and defenders. This gentle and even
affectionate animal, which has been the
companion of man from tbe earliest ages
and one ot tbe greatest factors in tbe civ
ilization and elevution of tbe race, could
not be trodden upon with impnuity. The
sheep itself doesn't bite, perhaps; it is
proverbial, indeed, as the synonym of
harmleBsness; and yet it is an animal
terrible to those who don't know how to
deal with it. Senator Slater fell in 1884.

Linus Hubbard, ot The Dalles, issend
ing out handsome photographs of tin
whaleback steamers Wttmore and Col
gate Uoyt passing the Suult St. Marie
locks. Accompanying them is the fol
lowing verse:
If our senators and congressmen
Heed the signs of the hour,
These steamers and more by many a score
Will pass the Cascade locks iu '01.
Tbe photos, with the verse, arc highly
suggestive, aud nothing baa yet traus
pired to show that tbe whalebacks will
not be the coming grain curriers of the
world. There is but one place betweeii
Cape Hancock and the Casondes witb in
sufficient water for these nteumers, and
that is the bur a short distance below
Vaooouver, and a comparatively insig
nificant sum will be needed there to
turninh a sufficient depth of water for the
largest vessels thaf enter the river. W hen
it beaonies possible to load n steamer
with wheat clear np in tbe grain fields of
the interior, and send that oargo through
to a foreign maiket without breaking
bulk or without further expense except
tbat ot operating the steamer, then will
the farmers of Oregon, Washington and
Idaho enjoy a truusportation rate that
will make tbem wonder how they en
dured the preseut monopoly so long as
they did, and thousands, even millions,
ot dollars that is now thrown into tbe
coffers ot Jay Oould and his Wall street
satraps, will be kept here in the North
west, am ng the farmers, where it right
fully belongs. It is not even necessary
tbat the business he done with whale-
baoks in order to re lure the present ex
horbitaut rates on wheat from the in
terior, for if the Cascade looks were com
pleted nod open to all, there would l.e
soores of independent steamers, barges
and scows offering competitive rates that
never can be secured so long as the river
is not opeu, and there is only one rsil
road to handle the business. The river
must be opened, mid any appropriation,
