A MISTAKEN POLICY.
Mr. Downing, t'he jiew secretary of the
National Republican league, Is quoted as
expressing the opinion that the contest
next year iwlll be fought mainly on the
tariff question, and that "the Democratic
party will try to evade the Issue and di
vide the Republican purty by raia.ng the
currency question; but it will not avail
If this means anything it means cearly
that in Mr, DjWi.iis's view the Repub
licans will d.cll.ie 10 take uny stmd on

nij: vuai ana co.iiiiianding Isue of na
tional pjiuics, tuey are doomed to d.sap
po.n.nient. The tariff question will have its appro
priate place amo..u the Issu.s of the
coming presidential campaign. The Re
publican party w.ll not fall to give It all
the prom.nence Its importance m.rlts.
But of vastly more urgent Importance
than any readjustment of , the tariff
which could be brought about by 'Re
publican success next year, It is t'hat
the country be delivered at once and
forever ifrom any apprehension of a
change in the money standards 'by placing
the monetary system of the country on
a solid basis. It was the truckling of
the politicians, especially those of it lie
Democratic party, :to the demands of
the free silver faction, which brought
on t'he disastrous panic of 103. It Ls the
dangerous strength displayed by that
faction in congress, and especially in the
senate, which has kept the country for
years constantly on the brink of the
precipice over which the public credit
threatened to go down Into the ti'.ack
abyss of repudiation and dishonor, and
which has made recovery from the con
sequences Of that panic slow and doubt
With the exception of fhe representa
tives and senators from tho silver mining
states, the R. publican party In congress
has maintained an unbroken record of
fidelity, at least of intention, to the
cause of sound money and national honor.
And one of the main reisons -why the
country Is Impatient to restore the Re.
pubilcan party to power In the prev.ill'
Irg confidence In the Intelligence and
honestly .with which It would deal with
the money question. The sure way for It
to forfeit that confidence is to turn Its
back on the overwhelming sentiment of
the pocketJborough mining states. The
petty politicians that recommend) that
course are not the sort of men whom a
young politician like Mr. Dowllng should
accept as political guide.
The Democratic party has rhown What
comes of this kind of thing; It has gone
from one step of degradation to another
In Its effort to strengthen itseif by cater
ing to tvery popular delusion on the
currency question until It has lost the
confidence of the country, and Is hope
lessly divided and demoralised on that
very Issue. That party will- have enough
to do In patching up a hollow and In
effectual truce on this question between
Its own contending factions w.thout rail
ing any Issue for Vhe Republican party.
The 'Republican party iwtll raise Its own
Issues, and one of them w.ll be a flat
footed declaration for monetary system
which wlil make every dollar of American
currency good as gold and as good as
ny dollar In the wide world.
If the One American ship Drummond
proves a wreck, as seems probable from
late reports current last evening, her
owners may set the disaster down to
the gross dereliction in duty of Oregon's
Pilot commission. It will be remembered
that last year, about this time, or per
haps a lllt-.e later, a Urge British ship
Which had been beating about In the
thick smoke oft this coast for many days.
narrowly tscaiped destruction on account,
nt thtk bIu.m ,.. . . .
of th lHt.?w. from itl jjagt 0f ,u,y of
the pilot v.-hooner. There is hardly any
period of ths ysir when a vigilant pa
trol and outlook U more needed along
the coast adjacent to the mouth of the
river than when the Immense volumes
of TTmoke from our burning forests Is
pouring as if through a funnel down the
gorges of the river and out into the
ocean. And yet that ls the very season
when our pomlpous commission deems it
proper to keep the pilot boat snugly laid
up In harbor, undergoing "repairs.
Every competent person in Astoria knows
that the "repairs" needed by the pilot
schooner tills season could have been
made In three days, but the schooner has
been kept laid up on that flimsy pretext
for over two months. The law of Ore
gon requires the schooner to be kept on
duty at all seasons, and It is Governor
Lord's duty to see that the law is com
plied with. Of course the commission
will be profuse In excuses and explana
lions, although enough testimony can be
Obtained in Astoria without difficulty to
chow the necessity for an overhauling
of the pilot commission, not mmvly re-
spectlng the to Hi pillar disregard of here
referred to, but ro in certain other
connections which tne Astorlan may feel
Impelled to mention later on.
The singular story comes from the

TRYING TO CHECK IMMIGRATION.
An organisation calling Its'. If the Im
migration 'Restriction League has pre
pared a Dill ion that subject which It
Iwemlk to have Introduced In. the next
ses&out of congress. It will raise the
head tux from $1 .tit $10, and wiOi pro
vide for the exclusion of "all persons
betweori-M'e aires of 14 and CO who can
not read a;id write the English or some
It ls averted that the present head tax
which ls paid by the steamship com
panies, is no check on Immigration, while
a tax of $10 would be. That It would make
th'.' expense of coming her greater and
thus secure a better class of Immigrants.
The reading and writing qualification,
miilcti 1h nflaUmed to bo the simplest,
moat rational and most American test
that can bo applied, ls aimed at Imml
gram's from Italy, Austria-Hungary, Po
land, Russia, and the Orient, a large
percentaie of wh'om are Illiterate, es
peclal'y the womvn, .while It would hard
ly affect ttTe Immigrants from Great
Britain, Ireland, Germany, and Scandi
navia, only about three-fifths of 1 per
cent of whom are Ulitierate.
It Is .asserted that this exclusion ot
utterly uneducated and unskilled labor
would' have a beneficial vffeet on the
labor market of-'tbla country. A year ago
the Massachusetts legislature made pro-
vision for the -appointment of a com
mission to consider "th' subject of the
unemployed and measures for their re.
lief." This year It submitted a report
in which it says that "the evil of non
employment Is In a considerable measure
due to Irresponsible, ill-advised and ill
adapted Immigration." It was found '.hat
in Boston, and many other larjre cities
a large proportion of thoe who nteded.
lv.lp last winter were Immigrants who
had recently arrived. They were for
Vhe most part unskilled. But of such la
bor Matachuxvtts liud an abundance,
even In normal times. Thus this immi
gration was not dur solely to the work
ing of .the econumic law ot suw'.y and
demand of labor. The oinmUsl.m says:
On the other hand, much of recent Im
migration' is due, not to a real and per
ma'wnt demand for labor In this part ot
the country, but rather to A pressed onti
abnormal conditions abroad, to novern
mental perewutlons, And to Irresponsi
ble ar.'i Inaccurate reoresentatlons In
I'jfirrpe of industrial conditions In this

to the West or South, where there may
fxiubly be a greuter demand for such
l..'3or, or Js ur.illtivd for the agricultural
;ife which mttfht otherwise absorb.lt.
A large number of these Immigrants
al&v re illiterate and consequently cm
rot rise into the ranks of eklilt-d labor.
They have Ibecoms cinge:nd in our
lsre cHlea, and not o.-.ly find themselves
ret.vatedly In ned of relief, butv also
depriving the rank and file ot our more
permanently stabllshed industrial
classes o'f opportunities of working at
industrial employments when there Is a
temporary Interruplloi: in skilled occu
pations. That there is much undesirable immi
gration cannot be denied. An attempt

keep out paupers and criminals, but ot
those who do not come under those heds

THE SUN'S TERRIFIC HEAT.
St. Louis Republic.
We believe that we ara speaking the
truth whien we say that there is not more
than or.' person In each 10,000 of the
republic's readers who has anything like
a correct Idea, of what an Icicle 10 miles
in diameter and 200,000 in length would
look llkle. It la also true that there Is no
nLeefrtty for one being provided with a
mind that woiuld enable him to form a
correct conception of such a gigantic
cylinder of Ice, for there is no probability
that any cue will ever live to see an Icicle
even, half so large, yet It is interesting
to kn'o'w that Sir John Herrchel, the
great astronomer, used such an Illustra
tion l one of his articles oni the inten
sity of the sun's heat. After giving the
dlame'J.r of the grea't blazing orb, land
a calculation on the amount Of heat
radkiKd by eadh square foot of lt im
mense surface, he closed by faying that
if t were possible for an Iclcla 45 mil)
In diameter and 2(10,000 miles Vor.g to
plunge HrJto t'h'a sun's great burning sea
of giais ilt would be me'.'ted away and ut
terly consuml-d even to its vapor in less
than one second of time.
Such am Icicle would contain more cubic
yards of ice than has formed on the
rivers and lakes of the United States dur
ing the past hundred years; l's base
wjiifil cover tlhe average Mitlitjurl couir.ity
and r.s lenerth .would be almost sufficient
to reach to Mre moon.
She Is a pretty puss In boots,
'With a saucy n.me that suits
