The Portland Oregoman says the "nl lianoe oranks" and "free silver knaves' are all wrong, in fact criminal, in their demands regarding fiuanoial legislation; that there is plenty of money for those who are willing to work for it; in short, tbat laziness and improvidence prompt their "oalamity howling." How is that anyhow, farmers of Morrow county? Are you willing to work? Do you work? Is it the usual tiling to reoeive a fair price for your wheat, for which the consumer pays a high price? Who gets the differ ence? How is it with the 1500 women in Boston who are earning less than 25 oenta a day? How is it that the 150,000 women in New York City who are earn ing less than GO cents a duy? It is "ca lamity howling," isn't it, to try to better a financial system nnder which the aver age annual amount earned by working- men in our large Eastern cities is from 878 to $182, or $150 to $3 per wee with which to provide themselves aud their families with food, shelter and clothing? At the same time liookfeller has an income of $28 per minute; Jay Gould, $15 a minute; Wm. Waldorf As- tor, $20 a ninute. A financial sytitem is all right that helps those already rich to pile up more millions and prevents those that are poor from obtaining work to do or a reasonable remuneration for their work. Certainly. The system is all right, but the people are lazy and im provident! The demands of the people's party are eminently necessary. They are connti tutional and perfectly practical, arid enacted into laws will destroy the poier of money to oppress the common people Money is scaroe, and source money means bard times and idle people; but an abundant circulating medium means good times and employment for all at fair wages. The constitution of the United States delegates to oongress the exclusive pow er to ooin money and regulate the value thereof, and this right carries with it the moral and legal duty on the pnit of oon gress to issue sufficient money to do the business of the country upon a conserv ative cash basis. The old party leaders would cough down the money question, but it will not down. The people are now aware that there is not suffioient money in cir culation and that they are at the meroy of the money sharks. In a speech delivered in Bostou on the 19th of last month Senator Dolph, the mouthpieoe of the goldbnsra and bank ers, undertook to show how unwise a free coinage measure would be. The re port of his speech takes fonr columns and a half of nonpareil type and the main Btring to his harp was the badly fray ed one of intrinsic value; but the wily sen ator in his over-done efforts to deceive his hearers with sophistry and to bewil der them with a wilderness of words got himself mixed up and all unwittingly de molished his work with one breath by saying: "The silver coins in the coun tries of Europe having a gold and silver standard are maintained in dnmestio cir culation side by side with gold ooins of a greater intrinsio value, first and princi pally by the fact that they are a full le gal tender in the respective oountries is suing them, in payment of debts and ob ligations of all kinds." LONE KOCH'S SPRING OPENING. Ed. Eood, tha king of Eight Mile hachelors, smiled on the fair sex at this place last Sunday. It is a little previous, but we are going to oelebrate the 4th of July in ship shape at Lone Bock this year. John Madden has purohased several head of horses lately, the price paid be ing $100 for choice animals. Grandpa Brown is holding his own pretty well, and is able now and then to give us a few ideas on tariff reform. Miss Nettie Robinson is residing at Condon this summer with L. W. Dar ling, assisting tbat gentleman in his mer chandising business. Ed. Wineland and the firm of Miller & Hill are preparing to start their saw mills in a few days. A good demand for lumber is expected this year. W. C. Brown, the horseman, is gather ing in bis herd preparatory for breeding. Also William Hendrix and others. A larger per cent, of oolts tuis year than usual. Sheep shearing, lamb marking and wool hauling is now oocuiring the time of the average Lone Booker, ail of whioh is very disagreeable on nocount of ti.e never-ceasing rain-fall. The Methodist orgftiiZation of this plaoe are contemplating the ereotion of a church building. The enterprise has not grown suffioient yet to receive the cold water bath givetf to suob work. Who says Lone Book is not prosper ing? Witbin the last moutb our mer chants have received 10 four and six- horse loads of merchandise, seven of the same being for Copner & Halv orson. B. M. Johnson, our genial candidate for sheriff, is putting io his share of the time over the county oalling on bis con stituents Bnd others. May he be suc cessful, is the desire of his many friends hereabouts. The work on the Henpner-Lone Book road is progressing nicely in Buttermilk canyon, and all hands -are preparing to haul their wool via the same. This means many dollars added to the coffers of Heppner business men. Although the road is greatly improved, there should be a few dollars more raised to complete the work to the entire satisfac tion of the) traveling puoiio. wuai say the good people? Miss Nan. Clark, who attended nor mal at Monmouth this winter, is teach ing eobool on Eight Mile, in the Hooker neighborhood. Kkno. Lone Book, (Jr., May VI, VZ. EIGHT MILE NBWS BUDGET. Editor Gazette : Gardens and grain are looking eplcu did. Mr. Morgan, of your burg, visited this vioinity Saturday. There has been two days of sunshine this week which made the grain grow very rapidly. The alliance is making things pretty lively for the republicans and democrats in this vicinity. There are several people of this nflijh borbood who will take their cattle to the mountains to keep the coming summer. Our school, whioh has been most suc cessful, has a vacation of two weeks on account of that contagious disease dipu theria. Mr. Bruce Haines thinks of turning up in South Amerioa within four months, upon an aligator's baok. I wish hin good success with bis trip. Lame Lute, a fellow who came here last summer, has taken him op u ranoh over the other side of Rea creek, whioh he intends making his home. The large amount of sod whioh has been broken out this spring, from what farmers say will cause more rain and that we can rest assured of raising an abund ance of grain.

OCR COUNTRY. from the Swedish of J. L. Runehcrg, translated by A. J. Our native land, our fatherland, Sound loud, O, dearest word! Not tow'rs a height toward heaven's verse, Not sinks a vale, nor's wnsh'd a strand, More loved than this our father's earth, Our country in the north. Our land is poor, will thus remain To him that gold doth seek ; A Btranger proud us passes by, But this our laud, ne'er loved in vain, To us with downs and alps and rocks, A gold laud ever looks. We love our rivers' mighty roar, Tho joyfull leaping of our brooks, The moaning of our forest dark, Our starry night, our light, our Bhore; Yea, all what here, as sight or song, Once sttrr'd our heart or tonguo. Our fathers here their battles fought With thought, with sword, aud plow; Here, here, in bright as cloudy times, With lortnnes good or bad, methought, The heart of Finland's folk did beat; Here dwelt true Patience sweet. We counted, then, these battles fought; Our people fought so brave; When war did roar from vale to vale, And frost the pangs of hunger brought; Who measur'd all its oft spill'd blood, And all Its patience view'd? And here it was the blood did flow, Yes, here for ub it was; And here it was that joy it shared, And here the sigh it preBs'd also, The people that our burdens bore, Long ere our days yet were. 'Tis pleasant hero, 'tis well to live, All is us here beBtow'd ; How'er our dice yet may be cast, A land, tiaficrfa?id we have; And now, indeed, what is more wortli To prize and love on earth And here aud here is now this land, Our eye discerns it here; We can at will stretch forth our hand, And gladly point to sea and strand, Anil Baying: "Now, behold this land, It is our fatherland!" And if to dwell midst fame we're led, 'Mongst golden clouds in blue; And were our life a starry dance, Where sigh were not, nor tear were shed ; To this our land, tho' poor, yet free, Our longing still would be. - O, land of thousand lakes, thou land, Where Song and Trust have dwelt, Where life's vast sea us gave a shore; Our ancient land, our future land, Let not thy poverty dismay, Feel free, secure, and gay ! Thy blooming, yet in hud enclos'd, Shall from constraint grow free. Behold ! Out of our love shall rise Thy light, thy fame, thy Joy, all hoped ; And louder once shall sound the song, Our patriotic song. A "Young Men's Conservative 8or'ity" numbering 1,750 members, has been con stituted in Christiana with the avowed purpose of cautiously advancing the new ideas of the times. Festina Lente. Two thousand two hundred nnd twenty- two Swedish conscripts have sought re lease from their patriotic duties in order to emigrate to America, intending, no doubt, to turn their swords into ploughs. The present prime minister of Norway, Johannes Steen, made a sacred promise a little more than 30 years ago that he would work to oonvert Norway into a re public aud himself beoome her first pres ident. He seems pretty near the goal of his ambition. There has been a very severe winter on Iceland, with much snow and ice in the northern parts. Wild reindeers and snipes hnve in masses repaired to the habitations of man and been killed by the thousands. On the southern ooast the winter fisheries have been exceeding ly lucrative. From the Fairo islands great storms are reported.- The antiquated and unjust privilege of rich landowners of entailed estates of nominating the incumbents of the paro- ohial churches has just received a glar ing illustration in the upper house of the Swedish Riksdag. Count Roul Hamil tonhimself Biioh a just patronatus drew the attention of the chamber to the incongruity of him, being a professed Roman Cathoho, to nominate the rector of a protestant ohurch of the established Lutheran oreed of Sweden. However conscientious the nominator may be, still the inoongruity of the antiquated law Is flagrant, for often a free thinker is called upon to exercise the same irrational au thority conferred upon the titled land owners. We must compliment Couut Hamilton upon bia consoieutions and manly unselfish oouduot. Noblesse oblige. IONB ITFMS. The grain prospeot is better every day, and everyone is happy. Our merchant, J. A. Woolery, spent 'aBt week in Hardman, looking after bus iness interests there. We are not behind in the line of ad vance. Two wood-yards have been ad ded to make business lively. Sheep shearers are busy now. A band of over four thousand neatly sheared sheep passed through here Friday on their way to the mountains. The Heppner postmaster had better use a little more care in looking after the Douglns and lone mail, or some of the abused ones may make a little trouble for him. Mail to the two towns baa been missent four times in one month. Mr. Gibson, our blacksmith, is a wid ower no longer. His wife returned from a visit to Walla Wulla two weeks ago. Mr. Woolery has likewise been made happy. His wife returned from a visit to her parents in Monument a week ago. Her sister, Miss Violet, is quite ill with the rheumatism.

We are having Bn alnindanoo of- rain. Vegetation is looking better for it. Miss May Ashhaugh has been visiting at her brother Fred's for tho past two weeks. Prof. Ham is giving good satisfaction in tho Eight Mile district school. He is as well pleased with the school as the soholurs are with him. School has been closed for almost two weeks on account of a diphtheria scare, but it did not amount to anything. School will open again next Monday. Miss Dell Fuqua spent last week at Mr. Andrew Ashbaugh's. Her visit was muoh enjoyed by the entire family. Miss Susie claimed her for her guest and the two young iBdies had a merry time Farmers have been enabled to break a larger lot of sod than they haye ever broken in one season in this part of Mor row county. It is nothing unusual to hear a man say "I have broken one hun dred acres this spring." Fine proBpeots for "garden suss." There is nothing to enoourage turmera to raise more than they waut for their own use, bb there isBuoh a poor market for them.

A man in this neighborhood was out rolling some land the other day, wheu his horses be oame unmanageable and broke away. They rolled hills, ouuyons and wire fences very lust, but soon the squeaking roller becamo uumnungeable and broke away from the horses. Now the rolling commenced. The roller rolled and roll ed straight dowu a branch of Eight Mile, heading for the Columbia, till it came to the mouth of the brnuoh, whero it fell orosewiiys in a big man's well. Everything goes oroaswaya here. ''My luck," said the big man, "surely there must be water iu that well, when it oould draw an old, dry roller six miles." But here is the question: To whom does the water, if found, belong; to the owner of the well, the owner of the roller or to the owuer of the land? Give it up. Eu. Tusk. Gooseberry, May 8, 92.

Gazette; In answer to the scale blook, or the "mare's nest," as the Ga zette man calls it, now Mr . Good Editor, when you f nd all the facts in the case, you will see you are getting right in the tracks of your good neighbors. The caae is like this: Sometime ago my atten tion was called to the block spoken of. I went to look at it and thought, like a dozen others, that it would make a dif ference iu weighing heavy draughts. Before I made up my mind about it I asked Sam Kinsman to test the scales. He "flew oil the handle," and refused to do so unless I would bet him $5110 that they were not right, which I could not do, as it would have been too much like one of Sam's sure bets. Bo all I have to say t Mr. Kinsman, is to keep his scales lookiug right, and dou't let a car ( f stock weigh more in Troutdale, ufter being ou tho cars twenty-four bonis, than they do on hia scales in Ueppuer, nnd then he won't have so much trouble. And hereafter Mr. Editor, ask both Bides of a story before putting in any ''mare's nosts," or Hocusing any one of criminating others, without knowing it yourself. John D. Hi'liAY.
