Entered as second class ma III mat

office at Mauph). Oregon, under the
act of March 8, 1876.
In the January numb;r of Tho
American Mercury lTimld S. Davis
contributes a story under the cap
tion, "A Town in Eastern Oregon."
Id the story, which is semi-fiction,
the writer mentions "a town on the
south bant of the Columbia river,
at the foot of the middle rapids,
where the deep cliffs of the river
forye break southward into low,
pleasant bills." It docs not require
the knowledge of a geographer to
recognize the place as The Dallos.
-Davis goes back into ancient his
tory of the place and with all the
anthema at his command stigma
tiiea the place as being one that con
tained all the elements of lawless
Bees, lewdness and vileness. He
sneers at the early attempts of mis
sionaries to civilize the Indians,
maligns the early settlers and .thru
out his article tlurs the town gener
ally. .v In the text of bis article the writ
er deliberately falsifies the popula
tion number, saying that the census
of -the city shows a population of
but 3.0C0, while it is well known
that better than 8,000 people reside

ll.i father wrs for many veers as-e-
-sor to W;:jco county and during
h.s runy terns in office gave em
jiuyment t0 the son. The office of
assessor provided the means where
by Harold Davis secured an educa
tion, and to now turn and satirize
the town that contributed greatly
toward that education is like carry
ing out the old saying "he bit the
hand that fed him."
We have been told that the term,
"Gros Ventre," which name he ap
plies to his subject town, means, in
the Indian language, "big belly." If
that is true it seems to us that being
of that tribe the writer chowed the
name's truth by using a heap of
guts when he deliberately maligned
the town which made him the writer
he a-'pires to be.
All the t!k about commodities
and suffering workmen and starving
farmers and profiteering manufac
turers only ierves to gloss over the
fact that the greatest bone of tariff
dissension is politics.
The "tariff farce" iz very much
like a play, with its heroes, heavies
and villains. It runs the gamut
from comedy to tragedy. The "de
fenders" of the people rise to smite
those w-ho would increase tariff du
ties, and the "guardians" of pros
perity smite back at those who would
lower duties. It is all very pretty
nd trival.
In the meantime the real pro
ducers of our prosperity, the work
ers, fanners and manufacturers, go
on in the hope that some day the
senate will condescend to consider
the tariff problem as a highly
scientific business question instead
of a great political plum tree plant
ed and maintained by all the people
for the special benefit of a few
"servants" of the people.
A fair tariff is to protect home
wage scales and living conditions
and treat foreign producers justly.
Its primary object is not to furnish
an exchange medium for log rolling
and vote bartering between am
bitious public "servants." The

Now that women's underthings
are, being made from wood we may
expect that when a girl craves a
change of such she will go to the
woodpile with a hatchet and carve
a suit or slip from a chunk of wood.

Sunday and who wrecked his Essex

(7 occasionally enjoyable in the
summer, and of all the vegetables
which are especially adapted to such
