Is referring to the recent failure
of a mercantile bouse in Danville,
111,, said to have been caused by go
ing security for other firms, tbe
American Grocer says:
Tbe aboe news item points its
own moral. This business failure
does not stand out alone; a numer
ous multitude could be named for
similar cause. One of the wise men
of old said : "They that go security
shall smart for it,' ajid all business
history confirms this saying. Fami
lies that once lived in affluence are
to-day verging on beggary for this
cause. The innocent have to suffer
for the mistaken kindness of the par
ent. No father of a family has the
moral right to risk the welfare of his
children in going security for his
friend or neighbor. No merchant is
at liberty to lend his name to assist
another financially as long as ho has
outstanding obligations. His cred
itors should be his first concern, and
to see that they aro paid his first du
ty. Endorsing other people's notes is a
risk that no man should take who
has a family to support or his own
credit to maintain. Business men
have about all the can do to attend
to their own affairs without standing
sponsor for others. It also frequent
ly happens that the very men thus
befriended turn round and become
enemies of those who lent them a
helping hand. Better say no at the
start than to once yield and after
ward refuse a money favor. The re
fusal begets enmity on ihe part of
the borrower toward the lender.
This shows the peiversc side of
human nature, especially in a busi
ness .point of view.
Entangling alliances are bad in
every way, and especially so in com
merce and trade. The worst form of
business alliance is that of accommo
dation paper. It is bad because de
ceptive. It is not given for value
received, and too often when pay-day
comes proves valueless. The maker
or endorser, whichever it may be, is
left in the lurch, and instead of
merely loaning his name he has
loaned all the accumulated savings
It is a hard fate to be bankrupted
in this manner, after years of honest
and honorable business record. The
only way to avoid the danger is to
say "no," now and ever when asked
to go security.
Some circumstances connected with
recent eastern strikes suggest very
serious reflections. The gingerly way
in which the Chicago authorities
handled the strike in that city with
out doubt had its effect upon the sit
uation in Cleveland, where, unfortu
nately, a struggle between the strik
ers and the police occurred. In fact
the conflict was incited by a socialist
from Chicago who cited the success
of the strikers in the latter city as an
argument for the employment of force,
and who, by the way, was at the time
out under bail on the charge of in
citing to violence and murder. The
Chicago authorities seemed to be op
pressed by the feeling that it was
somehow or other their duty to bring
about a settlement of the matter at is
sue between the employers and strik
ers, a matter with which, as public of
ficials, they had obviously nothing to
do. The executive officers of the law
would find their way in such emergen
cies renderedc learer by recollecting
that their duly is not to settle
controversies but to maintain pub
lic order and to defend life and prop
erty from violence. As regards the
action of the workingmen who have
sought by intimidation and violence
to prevent others from taking up
work which they have relinquished,
it can only be regarded as a direct at
tack upon the right of free labor, a
right which is jealously regarded in
this country and which the authori
ties are in duly bound to defend.
Such aotion on the part of ihe strik
ers will do nothing to conciliate pub
lic opinion in their favor. The idea
at its basis is counter to the spirit
of the age, which tends to regard lib
erty as in its essence an individual
rather than a corporate right, and
which works constantly toward the
emancipation of the single citizen
from the Control of corporations or
unions, or any associations less com
prehensive than the state itself.
Geo. E. Cole, a mill owner at
Cheney, W. T., is paying 58 cents a
bushel for wheat to send to Duluth.
He says it costs just the same to send
it to Duluth that it does to Portland,
but that when he gets it to Duluth it
is worth 12 cents a bushel more than
in Portland. It is less than 150 miles
from Cheney to Ainsworth whence
the Columbia flows--though sadly
vexed to the sea.
Ak authority" on canned goods
reveals the interesting fact that moBt
of the jellies in the market aro made
of apple parings and cores. Some
times the stock is kept so long that
it will not make jelly then they
make strained honey out of it This
is called enterprise in America: in
France they call it criminal, and send
the men who practice it to jail.
FoLiiOWixa is the opening address
of a "Wallowa valley justice of the
peace upon opening court for the
first time after failing to receive sat
isfaction at the hands of the grand
jury, to whom complaint had been
made that he was "thumped' while
sitting as a dispenser of justice:
' Gentlemen: Having learned by sad
experience that the grand jury of
this county will not indict any person
for assault and battery upon a justice
of the peace while holding court,
therefore, in the future this gun (pull
ing a bulldog from his pocket and
laying it on the table,) will be consid
ered a part of the docket of this court,
and its business cud will always be
found pointing where duty calls or
danger threatens. Any person who
attempts to bulldozo or run over this
court is cautioned to take care of
himself. "We will now proceed to
