MARRYING TOUR WIVES
Some thirty years ano a young j
Greek went to New York and j
entered into business. He had i
rooms in a business block, and was
supposed to be unmarried. A few
months since he died, leaving
property to the amount of $1,200,
000. His lawyer found among hi
papers an informal will written by
himself, whereby he gave his prop
erty to his four wives in equal
parts. Attached to the will was
an explanatory paper to the effect
that, desiring vigorous and healthv
offspring, and being in doubt in
regard to the national blood which
would form the best mixture with
his own, he had mairied four wives
English, French. German, and
Spanish and was raising a family
by each wife. He requested the
lawyer to call these wives together
after his death, and tell them the
true stor3 of his life, and divide
the property equally among them.
Upon looking into the matter it
was found that the four marriages
were informal and by contract,
and that each contract bore the
same date, to wit, 8 r. m., Novem
ber 16, 1S70. Each wife told the
same slorv of her marriage. Each
said that she was engaged to the matter of duty on tin plate, as
Greek, and one evening when he , there is now a large canning bus
was about to leave the city for a jiuess done in Salmon, and before
few weeks he sent for her to come
to the hotel where he then lived.
She went, lie then came into the
room where she was with the writ
ten contract in his hand and both
signed it, after which he hastily
left for the train, as she supposed.
When he returned to the city they
commenced housekeeping, and lie
spont such time with her as his
business would permit. You sec, j crease, demand a reduction on tuis )
he wrote four marriage contracts j article: The imposition of a tax
of the same date. Then he had ! nearly double that which now pre-:
the four girls come to his hotel at j vails tin Plsltes wou,d most
the same hour. He hastily stepped J seriously embarrass the packers of
into the room of each girl and ', canned goods all over the countiy.
signed the contract with each, &o!Tllis industry has within a few
that in the coming years neither j
wife could claim the priority of
marriage. It was also found that
in naming these wives in his will
and the explanatory paper he
wrote them alphabetically, and
called attention to the fact that he
After the husband's death, when
the four wives mctln the lawyer's
office and heard the true story of
their one common husband, and
exxmined each other's marriage
contract, their astonishment can be
imagined. Neither could claim
priority of marriage. Neither
could claim to be the one legal
wife. Fortunately all were sensi
ble woman, and they readily
agreed to divide the property
equally and avoid all publicity.
Each took her $300,000 and went
her way quietly. Portland Me..
Too Much Fowcr.
Mr. Flowers proposes to amend
the federal constitution so that a
president can reject part of a bill j
which has passed congress and ap
prove that part which suit him.
This policy has been adopted al
ready in several states in reference
to state affairs, giving the govern
or power to veto part and approve
part of a bill. It is, however, but
an experiment yet, even in state
matters; and it may not when wel
tried, be found a wise change.
State constitutions are, however,
easily altered; and in the event J
that this plan does not please the
people of a state, they can go back
to the old plan of requiring the
governor to sign or to veto the bill
as a whole; to take it all or to take
none. But there is another very
grave consideration connected with
this change. In any event there
seems v to be little danger to be
apprehended from an "ambitious
governor. To give .such power to j
the president is quite a different ,
thing. He is in a manner in-i
trenched in a citadel of power,
served by an army of office hold
ers, with un armed military andj
naval force under his control. It J
is casv to imagine a condition of.
affairs wherein a president may ;
become a dangerous enemy to
public liberty. There is, perhaps,
no instance of a free people es-j
caping without attempts being,
made by designing persons to sub-j
vert their most precious institu- j
tions. We have had one narrow j
escape from the possibility' of un- j
told calamities in this direction, j
To invest the president with this t
power to pick out yhat suited him :
from bills passed by congress, j
may be about equivalent to j
vesting the principal law-making
power iu his hands. It is a move
in a dangerous direction. It is a J
proposition to still further lessen
the too feeble influence which the j
citizens have over their affairs. I
S. F. Examiner.
Proposes to Increase:.
The Pacific Coast, and especially
Oregon, is most interested in the j
long we shall become extensive
eanners of all kinds of our surplus
fruit. I lie duty on tin plate now
is one cent, and the Tariff Com
mission proposes to increase this
to two cents, jiiat double. Forj
whose benefit this is to be done,
wo know not, but we do know '
that a majority of the people aieJ
consumers and instead of an in-,
years grown to enormous propor-
tions. There is hardly a State or '
a Territory of the Union in which
the business of canning goods has
not gained a foothold. It employs
tens of thousands of men; it util
izes a vast proportion of the pro
ducts of the farm and the orchard
that otherwise would go to abso
lute waste; there is not a family
in the land which is not interested
in having preserved for it during
the long winter months the many
substantial articles of food that
otherwise would be worthless in a
few days or a few weeks after they
have been brought to market. It
is because of the development of
the canned goods industries that
we are enabled, at a cheap price,
to enjoy in the dead of winter,
peas, tomatoes, peaches and many
other fruits and vegetables.
A flourishing export trade in
these and other perishable articles
of food has also been opened up.
Our vegetables, fishes and meats
are canned and transported to
every quarter of the globe. We
have been furnished with au esti
mate of the number of cans which
were required during the first
eleven months of this year for the
exportation of only salmon, oysters
and beef. Twenty-five million
cans were required for the preser
vation of such of these goods as
were shipped abroad. This does
not include what were canned for
home consumption. It does not
uclude tho cans that were required
for either the exportation or the
home consumption of oils, lards,
and the ordinary vegetables.
An increased duty on the tin
plates which are required in the
manufacture of the tens of mil
lions of cans in which our fruits
and vegetables are preserved must
result in raising the price of these
eommeditiea to consumers, and
what people are not consumers '
of tbm to a greater or lesser de- i
gree? It must also cause consid
erable detriment to ihe farmers. ;
who will find the demand for their .
products lessened. The wisest '
measures of statesmanship are ,
those which cheapen and diffuse '
the food supply of the people, but j
the preposition to raite the tax on J
tin plate only serves to make more
costly some of the most important',
articles of our food supply. Every
irrocer must sell his canned goods
at higher figures and a. tax is thus j
laid upon every breakfast, dinner j
and supper of the poorest classes
of the community. For instance, s
there is hardly a family in ordinary j
circumstances which does not en- j
joy at this season that delicious and
nutritious esculent, the tomato, j
but the duty which the com mis-
sion and nobocly else but the ,
commission wishes congress now j
to impose on tin plates, will make j
the tomato ascend at least ten per
cent, in its price.
This tax docs not afford a pro- j
lection to industry. It is indc-i
... . -r. . . i
feasible on that ground. Jt is in
reality an obnoxious duty on raw
material. To increase it is to
perpetuate a rank injustice. On
the contrary, it should be omitted
altogether from the list of dutiable I
imports, or at least should be :
made to contribute uo more than
its fair share of revenue of the
jrovernment. Portland Standard
