Hon. I. 1. Kkyt IH f.n& very hi
U'retilj reading in lust week' Issue of
our city coSeniporrv. He ii to'd in
plulu language ,.mt a eonsuinuiate
donkey lie line made of hhinH'lf in the
opinion of the editorial writer, mid
without an extra flemish of trnmHta
lie is blarklistod in the following en
tertaining tasl.ion: "His political star
bMl," says the West Side, "and lie
will ko down to political oblivion as
many a man line Rone Kfore him, who
ha been swayed and iiitlueneetl ly the
very men who oppose! nil election,
Aud as Mr. Keyt and the republican
party cannot work in harmony together
ibey must separate. Mr. Keyt cjhi ft.iy
in tlie opulist bund wa'on and bid adieu
to hi old republican friends and euj -porters."
While wo are no apologiit fl,r
Mr. Keyt, it does appear to us that if
every republican who voted against
Senator I)olpl' re-election U to lie read
out of the party there will be eiieli a
tumbling into "the populist band
wagou" two years hence that our re
publican friends need not go to the
trouble of putting a ticket in the field.
It Ja safe to my that one-half of the
republican party of Oregon was oppoeed
to the re-election f Mr." Dolph. Whether
their reasons for so doing were gocd or
bad we shall not stop to inquire, but
the fact exists nevertheless. Of course
political deficit is alaya humiliating,
but Senator Dolph ha!" lieen the bene
ficiary of high honors at the hands of
Ids party. lie has w&rn the senatorial
toga for twelve years, and his eminent
abilities have received national recogni
tion. Greater men have been content
with less honors, aud weaker men have
received higher favois. Mr. Dolph
made the mistake of getting out of touch
with the people whom he represented
and of whom he waa simply the servant
and not the master, No man is strong
enough toridedown public opinion and
he who attempts it will be dragged out
o sea by the undertow.
Tim drain upon the treasury within
the lat year for the redemption of legal
tender ha been unprecedented in the
history of the government , It is claimed
that want ot eoulldenc in the ability of
the government to redeem it pled1 I"

treasury. We Uon t neiieve tun

is as good today as it ever was. Indeed,
the new 4 per cent bonds of the re-rut
loan are now soiling ut a premium of 15
per cent in foreign markets. This fact
itself sinks the stale lie of "want of
confidence" in the government to pay
its obligations in standard money to
the bottom of the ocean of dissimula
tion and perfidy. No bode lielieve such
rot. Not even the gold monometalists
themselves believe it.
esteemed fellow citizen Ueo. W. Mc
Bride, of St. Helens, Columbia county.
Mr. McBride was recognized as a pos
sible senatorial darkborse by a few w ho
stood within the charmed circle of
legislative confidence, but his election
came like a thunderbolt from a clear sky
to the majority of the. people of Oregon.
The new senator-elect is a native son of
Oregon, and comes of sturdy pioneer
stock.' He baa served the people for
eight years as secretary of etate, and
also Berved one or two terms in the
legislature with credit to himself and
good satisfaction to his constituents.
He is a man of the people and is per
sonally quite popular. He bears a
clean political record and an untarn
ished personal character. He has the
reputation of standing outside of
machine politics, beeides his early
training was in line with the wants and
wishes of the Common people. Mr.
McBride has fair ability ami will no
doubt make a conscientious and in
dustrious member of the senate. He
ranks equally with Hermann, w hich is
no small praise, and he will always
stand out boldly for what he believes to
be the best interests of Oregon.
It is becoming inorj and more impor
tant as the country booomes populated
and business increases that go-l roads
should be established. Good roads are
as essential for the farming community
as they are for the- accomodation of the
business of the city. Them is no coun
try in the world in greater need of a sub
stantia! road system than the Willam
ette valley. Our lone rainy season
make good roadbeds a neeessitv.
There is no reason why l'olk county
could not have splendid roads the year
around if letter methods were only
adopted in road working. The supply of
gravel is abundant at almost any jxiint
in the count y.and a few years of judicious
put our roads in first-class condition.
The innovation should bein with this
Tits panicky effect of the redemption
of silver certificates in gold is shown in
the enormous amount of Treasury notes
redeemed since hS'JO. The treasury sta
tistics show that $2)4,000,000 in gold
has been paid out under the Silver-Purchase
act of 1SO0. The law gives the
option of payment in either gold or sil
ver to the treasurer, but under a vicious
precedent the option is given to the
holder of the certificates. It is claimed
this was necessary to keep up the parity
liotween the two metals. With such a
precedent once established it is diflicult
and perhaps hazardous to make a
-.v , change. It is any wonuer that cautious
