PAtTERIZIXO WAGE WORKERS.
Th paper on th llver question pre
sented In the senate of th Vnlted State
last December by Mr. Stewart were cr
dered to be printed, and It appears that
copies ar being distributed widely. The
author of th paper have tried to show
that great injury baa been don to tlx
trad and manufacture of England by
adherence to the cold standard In that
country whit th price of silver bullion
was railing: that gold wages have not
fallen te England nor silver wage risen
In China or other Uvr ba.is countries:
and that unless sorn international agree
ment (in regard to silver) is come to at
nc th result must be th ruin of many
British Industrie and th throwing out
f employment of many thousands of
British workmen. Evidently Senator
Stewart wished It to b believed that
similar trouble menace th people of
the raited States unless they adopt what
be absurdly calls "bimetallism." when
every sensible man knows that It would
be silver monometallism.
The argument is that the wage of
workers In th countries which are on
the basis of stiver monometallism are no
' higher nominally than they would be It
the wages were paid in gold at the rate
of ooe grain of gold for every sixteen
aunoea of silver in the silver coin. But
as the employers of labor can buy about
thirty ounces of silver with on ounce
I gold tae actual oost of labor In th
silver countries Is but little more than
aalf of what it would be if the gold
standard wer th nil there, or the cost
f labor Is nearly twice as much In th
gold standard countries as It would be
If they wer on the free silver basis.
Thss means. If It mvans anything, that
m order to prevent destructive compe
tition by the products of cheap Asiatic
tabor the value of wages paid in the
CnJred States must be reduced one-half.
It is proposed to accomplish this under
the sorry and transparent mask of a
drop to the free ilvr basts, after which
the wsge earners ar? to be paid the
same number of dollars per week or
month as now, while each of these dol
lars will have only half the buying power
f a dollar in gold, as is the case in the
silver standard countries. But why not
drop that thin mask and propose a hori
zontal reduction of all th wage rolls in
the United Slates while retaining the
gold standard? That would not be a
Jot the worse for the wage earner. By
the latter arrangement he would gt Just
as much pay for his dally toil as the
free sllverltes scheme would give him,
the "pay" being reekomd In the quantity
of food, fuel, clothing and other neces
saries and comforts of life which have to
be bought by the toiler with his wag"s
for himself and family. And it would
have advantage for the toller over the
scheme advocated by Stewart and the
other silver extremists that It would not
diminish the demand for labor by cutting
in two the working power of the money
capital at the comamnd of the employer.
This proposed drop to the free silver
basis for the purpose of cheapening the
wages of the toiler while nominally pay
ing him the same per da:, week or
month is a cheat, a delusion and on In
tel ded si. are. It is a pitfall dug for th
feet of the wage earners, and all the
more wicked a It Is dug by those who
pretend to be their friends. X drop to
the free silver ba.is, which Is the object
. and aim of the bimetallic movement (-.nd
party, would do the wage earners ot thv
United States much more harm than they
could suffer by the cutting down of th-Ir
wage one-half whll retaining the pres
ent standard of currency values. So
they ought to ask for the latter, If they
want a change which will enable them
to coniprte with cheap Asiatic labor.
But they should not want either, and
the way to avoid it is again to d.clarc
for the Republican party of sufliclent
protection to home industry to ehut out
this competition Instead of paup-rlzlng
ourselves in the effort to meet It under
Democratic free trade.
The communication In yesterday's issue
signed "Subscriber." urging the claims
of Nehalem people for assistance In ob
taining a better road to Astoria, Is
well worthy the careful consideration of
every merchant in the city. It is plainly
'evident, from the statements mad-1 from
time to time, that the farmers of the
Walluski and the citizens of Nehal -m
are doing all they can to secure pasabl?
roads to the county seat, and It is hardly
necessary to point out the advantag-s
that would accrue to the city from good
roads. A very large amount of trade
Is lost to Astoria every year becuase of
the miserable county roads. It would
well repay the merchants of ths city If
they should pay half the cost of con
structing two or three main roads to the
eounfry district, and there is no oth"r
one thing that would so develop the
wealth of Clatsop county and open
the way to Immigration here of a
high clam of farmers as the building of
first-class roads. Hundreds of acres of
land, now lying Idle, could be mail." pro
duotlve and profitable alike to th farmer
ami merchant If the mean ot cheap
ttansportadon to market was provided
At a mere matter of eold-blixMl lil
nee and elf-prottvtlon the city ahould
aid in thee enterprise and contribute
liberally for RMod roa.ls. Titer should
1m no uncertain tone In the cra ting of
the roan to th country, and the lint
ha now arrived whvei delay are dan
gerous. Competition I on every hand,
and only those aavtlona of country which
can keep abreast of the time can hope
to be u,osful.

Chauneey M. Uepew and Cornelius Van

icle the outcome of plans which have
be-n under consideration for several
months by which the Vandrrhllta hope
to gain control of the Union and C-n-tral
Pacific Railroad properties. The re
organlatlon of those companies must
take place soon and the Vanderhllt are
beyond question In better position to
handle those properties than any other
railroad people In the country. Further
more, these two properties are worth
more to the Vanderbllts than anyone Ise

that some of the Vaniierbtlts, tog'tnr

on good authority Is b hind Mr. Ham

tlon to prove the reasonableness of th
supposition. -That Vanderhllt hlmsHf
would give any p-rsonal attention to the
detalU of so small an enterprise as 'he
Astoria roa'l. Is har'ily possible. It Is
hoped, however, by i Lose who are most
int-rwted In the Project h re, that possi

Purchases Historic Real Estate Near
White Plains, N. Y.
New York, March 21. In the old town
of Eastcheeter President Cleveland and
William 8. Blsn-11, his old law partner
and lately postmaster general, have been
investing In real estate. Thoy have
bought what Is known as the Fowler
place, on which was located the Juon
house, at the corner of the Klngsbrldge
and White Plains road, In which George
Washington passed a night prior to the
battle of White Plains.
During a heavy windstorm this old
house was blown down, and the remains
of It were carried away by the old In
habitants as relics. It was from this
house that Washington, before leaking
General Heath, who had command of
that division of the American army,
marched up from the causeway at
Throggs' Neck and made his way up the
old Boston road and across to Chatterton
Washington, before leaving, Is said to
have kissed Mrs. Guyon good--by, and
her husband playfully remarked: "Now,
my dear, never wash your face again."
Taken altogether, this acquisition to
the president's real belongings is one of
the most famous historical spots about
New York. There is also located upon
it the remains of an old Indian fort.
