Of all the surprises in politics the
most surprising is to meet an Ameri
can of Irish birth or parentage who
favors free trade ami thus aids Eng
land in her effort to break down the
prosperity of the United State.
It is natural to suppose that an
Irish-American would have sufficient
gratitude for this great country that
give3him shelter and prosperity, to
at least refrain from doing anything
to help England in her attempt to do
with the United States manufactures
what she long since did with Ireland's
Ireland had reached a considerable
degree of industrial development prior
to the revolution of 1GS3, but from
that time forward, her industries, one
after another, were deliberately
strangled by laws passed by the Eng
lish and Irish parliaments, until the
most searching scrutiny failed to find
a single vent for the hated industry ot
Ireland to respire. The consequence
was that the people were driven to the
laud as the only means of getting a
livelihood. The rack rent system be
gan, andfn one generation the rentals
of Irish estates were more than
doubled. Swift denounced the in
iquity of forbidding the country to
make the best of its own resources
and defended the people from the
charge of idleness by reminding their
critics that English policy had left
them nothing to do. This state of
things continued until the uprising of
the volunteers secured the indepen
dence of the Irish parliament in 1782.
The Irish tariff was adopted 1783. It
found the habit or manufacturing all
but extinct in Ireland, excert in the
northeast counties where the linen
manufacture had always been fostered
by bounties and protective duties. It
was opposed with great determination
by statesmen who scoffed at the no
tion of taxing the country into growing
rich. Butunder its influence the woolen
industry of the south and west revived
and the Irish people began to emerge
out of their poverty and unifonuity
of occupation. Black .Tack Fitzgib
bon, the earl of Clare, had resisted
the passage ot the law with all the
energy of his powerful, but ill regu
lated mind. But in 1798 he said:
'There is not a nation on the face of
the habitable globe which has ad
vanced in cultivation, in agriculture,
in manufacture, with the same rapid
ity in the same period as Ireland.' "
"By wholesale bribery," the treaty
of union was carried in 1800. The mer
ciless competition of the British cap
ital was as effective as the merciless leg
islation of the English parliment. Des
titution became general in the Irish
towns; and throughout the country (e
cept where the linen industry pre
vailed) the people were driven back
upon the land aud forced to compete
with each other for the possession of
the soil." (Harvard Lectures, Apple
What said England to this? Hear
the London Times:
'For a whole generation man has
been a drug aud population a nui
sance" in Ireland. s
" "In the abstraction of the
Celtic race at the late of a quarter of
a million a year, a surer remedy for
the inveterate Irish disease" has been
found "than any human wit could ever
Carlyle, said; "The only solution
to the Irish problem is to Hood
the whole island six feet deep
with water for 21 hour," and all
All England now strives to conquer
the United States to her way of think
ing and occasionally is presented the
singular spectacle of an Irish-American
aiding England in the work.
It'OJLLVS MGUTS-AXI) LEFTS.
Tite ballot is not a prerogative; it is
a duty, and for the most part a very
irksome duty. If we could only have
our politics attended - to for us by
prosy most of us would bo glad; and,
indeed, a large proportion do in fact
relieve themselves of this too esacting
duty, escept now and then when a
spasm of patriotism, brought on by a
fever of partisanship, quickens the
pride or self-interest which they call
conscience. The question is not
whether women have a right to vote,
but whether they have a right not to.
The great body ot the silent women
in America claim exemption from po
litical duties as they do from serving
on juries, on fire engines, and in the
militia. If the women of America
ever vote, it will be, not because it is
their right, but because it is a duty
which they cannot refuse to under
take. If they do not vote now it is
not because men are refusing them
the ballot which they are too timid to
demand, but because no oue has yet
convinced them that they have not a
right to be exempted from a duty
which they dread and their fitness for
which they distrust. The ballot is,
after all, only a subtle form of force;
andj as we have had recent terrible
illustration in onr own country, they
that use the ballot must be prepared
to compel obedience to its decisions
by forces that are not subtle. Sup
pose the men of any community vote
for license and the women for prohi
bition, who will enforce on the men
the decision rendered at the polls if
the men should not be loval enough to
enforce it against themselves? . The
question is one not unlikely to arise,
aud it illustrates the essential nature
or the function of the ballot and what
its assumption necessarily involves.
No person should ever issue a com
mand which he has not power to en
force, and this principle is as applica
ble to a class as to an individual. It
is because, more or less clearly, the
great body of women see this princi
pie that they do not respond to the
demand made upon them to take up
the ballot and all that taking the bal
Tun other day Oskaloosa. Kansas,
elected a woman for mayor and a city
council composed of women. The
Chicago JYews thinks that the trans
actions of that worshipful body may
hereafter include items like the fol fel fol
eowing: An ordinance regulating the
amount of sumir to be used in making
quince preserves. An order for a spe
cial committee to be appointed by
the mayor to discover the best method
of darning socks. An ordinance re
quiring all storekeepers, shopkeepers
and tradesmen or even- sort to place
mirrors in their front windows. An
ordinance compelling all persons of
the male sex to remain at home after
dark unless accompanied by their
wives. An ordinance providiug for
an annual distribution of spring bon
nets. An ordinance prohibiting jokes
about bustles and false fronts. An
ordinance abolishing white horses.
Boston papers loudly commend the
introduction or what they call "kin
dergarten schools." The fonnders of
the kindergarten system would if
alive suggest to the editors the pro
priety of a little dictionary study,
since the word "kindergarten" alone
has all the idea which can be given
by the two.
"Tun company is not guilty; we
censure the corpse." Such was the
purport ot a verdict of a coroner's
jury on a fatal accident at a grade
crossing. People have no right to use
public streets it a railroad company
wants to cross them. Let them climb
trees and jump across the tracks.

A Necessary Measnre.
The same courage and public spirit
which led Now xork, when she had
a population of about a million, to
undertake the great work of the Erie
canal ought to animate Oregon to
day. AVe should not relax our efforts
to rouse congress to appreciate the
importanco of the improvement of
the Columbia and acknowledge it by
generous appropriations, but in the
mean time a state of 250,000 people
and including so rich a city as Port
land onght to spend half n million of
dollars in helping herself to prosper

Itelucin;r the Surplus.
The disposition ot the Surplus in the
U. S. Treasury engages the attention of
our Statesmen, but a more vital question
has our attention, and that i the reduc
tion of the Surplus Consumptives. Since
the discovery and introduction of Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consump
tion, there has been a marked decrease
in (he mortality from this dreaded dis
ease, and it is possible to still further re
duce the number of Consumptives.
How? By keeping constantly at hand
a bottle of Dr. King's New Discovery,
and usinglaccordiiig to directions, upon
the appearance of the first symptoms,
such as a Cough, a Cold, a Sore Throat,
a Chest or Side Pain. Taken thus early
a cure is guaranteed.
