for a general debate before a vote
should be taken. He demanded the
previous question on hi oHer, but it
w as antagonized by the Republicans,
under the leadership of Cannon, who
wanted to debate the question. Fin
ally a vote was taken, resulting:
Ayen, 217; noes, 100. The previous
fjuewtlon was ordered and the Ite
publican "viierally voted with the
Democrats In support of the motion.
The resolution was then adopted,

Judge Charles I hull Iong, of the
supreme court of Michigan, has had
his enion withdrawn on the ground
that "it Is not necessary for his sup
port," as he has a salary of 17,000
per year. Jtiilge Long lost his left
arm at the battle of Wilmington Is-
lam I, (ieorgiii, and revived also a
ball through the tils and abtlomen.
The levr on M remains, amfJ

Without disi-ussing this action of
Hoke Smith's at length, let us call
attention to one point : If it be right
and protcr to withdraw a pension
from a man suffering disabilities such
as Judge Long's, then rut off all
pensions now received by men who
are able to maintain themselves.
Here are a few nuch :
Secretary of State Walter Q. Ores
ham draws f)0 a month for a shot
wound In the leg received liefore At- J
lanta. He had a comfortable law
practice, was Judge for years at a
good salary, and now geU W,000 a
year as a meiiiter of Cleveland's cab
General John C. Black draws
1,200 a year jenion for total "dis
ability," yet he was commissioner of
pensions during Cleveland's former
term ; makes 110,000 a year from his
law practice, and Is now a represent
ative in Congress at Ao.OOO per year.
General Franz Sigel draws 1100 a
mouth, yet Is understood to have
made a very tidy sum out of the
pension agency in New York city.
General Neal Dow, of Maine, the
well known prohibition orator, draws
a pension for a wound received at
Port Hudson, but is a wealthy man.
These are but a few of the men of
national rcputatiou who have means
to maintain themselves well, yet are
on the jsnsion rolls. If Judge
Ixmg's pension is cut off for this
reason, w hy not cut thee and other
similar ones off for the same reason?

of Interest paid er capita of our pop

decrease of tf.7s in average annual
Interest charged to every inhabitant
of the United states, and a decrease
of alraot f uo.nno.noo in the aggre

national debt under the protective
policy should not be forgotten at this
juncture, when tsongren in now la

the Pennsylvania Is enterprising

BRITISH TKADF. DEfllSE.
Both the Import and the txport
trade of Great Britain, during the
first half of the present year, ahow s a
decline as compared with the) cor
responding period of 1V2, In Imports
the devreu.se amounting to 7." per
cent, and in exports to 3.0 percent.
In I in sir Is the principal decreases
were la animals for food, duty free
food and drink, dutiable articles of
food and drink, metals aud raw
materials, th last Item alone allow
ing a falling on of $W,8OO,0oo for
half a year, w hich speaks volumes
for the decline of manufacturing
Industries In free trade England.
In the matter of exports the larg
est decrease was lu shipments of
yarns and textile fabrics, amounting
to 14,3o0,000 for the half year
Articles of apparel and personal use,
machinery and mill work, metals
and other manufactures also declined,
while exports of food and drink
showed an increase for the half year
There was a decline In the Imports
of crude metals, chiefly In copjs-r
regulus from Spain and the United
States. Raw cotton showed a decline
in tmantity but au Increase In value,
with smaller Imports from the
United States, but larger from Egypt.
The great gain In the Imports of silk
and woolen manufactures from Eu
roe, and leather from India, Is par
The exports of cotton yarn de
creased by 10 per cent, and of piece
goods by over 11 per cent, for the
half year. This additional adverse
trutte no doubt was brought about by
greater competition from the United
States. The exisirts of hardware
and cutlery, which affected the
friends of United States Consul, Mr.
Benjamin Folsom, cousin of the
Democratic president, Grovor Cleve
laud, decrea-ied by more than 0 per
cent, ami exports of machinery and
engines by 7 jst cent. Wearing
apparel fell off by Id per cent.,
worsted carpets by 17 ier cent.,
woolen fabrics by ." er cent, and
silk manufacture by ulmtmt 1)1 (s-r
cent. British Ikst seems to have
Us'ii less in demand in other coun
tries, latnice the exports fell off
during the half year by IiimH
barrels, u decrease of o jer cent.

Snpt. of the Penitentiary.
The Salem Independent for Home
weeks has been after the scalp of
Geo. S. lK)wning, mipt. of the state
penitentiary. Under date of Aug. 9th
Gov. Pennoyer addressed this letter
to the Salem paper which it publishes:
Will you be kind enough In behalf
of truth and Justice to allow me to
state in your columns, that I did ex
amine all of the charges made against
George S. Downing, superintendent
or the enitentiary, herore they were
made to the legislative investigating
committee, or the grand Jury and
that I round them all to be entirely
without foundation. Mr. Iownlng
is ami always has been a faithful,
elllcient and honest officer and his
management of the peuitentiary has
bts?n above reproach. I wish to say
this In defense of a faithful official,
who has ticen men-llessly prosecuted
for no other reason, as I can conceive,
than because he would not "stand
in," for which refusal I honor him.
Salem, August 9, 1893.
Instead of silencing Mr. Downlng's
prosecute r, it arrouses it to new life
and the fight waxes hot.
Thos. A. Hudson, of The Dalles,
Or., tells of an object lesson in the
eastern art of this state which is
mighty interesting reading for the
fellow w ho voted for a change last
fall. Here's what he says :
"I wish that every cltixen of Ohio
who is undecided as to how he shall
vote could visit Eastern Oregon, and
especially this city, and see five mil
lion pounds of wool stored for want
of a market. The same clis that
sold last year for seventeen cents
cannot be sold this year for ten cents.
The buyers say: Owing to the un
settled state of affairs we cannot take
your wool except on a free tariff
basis, w hich means a price that w ill
kill the Industry In the United States.
A private letter from Australia says:
H )ne of the chief reasons for the bank
failure, here is that WO.oOO.OoO pound
of wool are being held pending the
adoption of free trade in the United
States, which i txpoftvd to take
place as soon as tsingrest meets.' "
The Salem Independent raises its
voice for the China pheasant that Is
not yet through hatching Its young.
It would be a good thing to forbid
hunting with dogs. If only still
hunters went out the birds can take
care of themelvw, anil the success

though fewer hints.
How it was that a plat of land
remained unclaimed in Brownsville
for so many years, forty at least, Is a
mystery, but the fact that the title
remains in the government Is not
doubted after Investigation. The
ta.k now is to keep Monk or the the Republican party. This is terrl

THE S01TI1 AU Sl'UAR.
A change lu public sentiment U
most certaiiily taking place In the
Southern states of the Union. The
change Is a gradual one, and slower
than Is warranted by the actual con
ditions. It U not surprising, how
ever, that It should be a slow chuoge,
because the South, haviug been so
long wedded to free trade, outwardly
at least, finds It hard to shake off old
associations; but the change Is com
It Is a wonder that in the sugar
growing states the free trade element
has been so long maintained, e-ps'i-ally
siruv the establishment of the
sugar bounty. This bounty is of
direct benefit to the sugar growers,
who have thereby received actual
protection Ht the hands of the Repub
lican party. The sugar growers
know that their luisinev. was never
established tisn a more satisfactory
basis, and that it has never paid
them better than within the last two
years, and for this they are indebted,
and they know It, to the protection
a Ton Us I them by the sugar Isxinty.
This iH-iiig tht' ease, It would seem
only nsisonalile to exisst that the
Southern pic would take up the
matter of protection and advocate it.
In those sis'tions where sugar Is
grown, the success of that industry
means suit-ess to all living there; yet
In those very districls which have
licen most proHrous under this pro
tection the press has Us'ii most silent.
It would sS'iii that Southern editors
are afraid to -peak the truth.
Hut what ran they have to I-
afraid of? Should they state openly
and frankly that protection, bv
means of the sugar bounty, has Us-n
of direct and inculculnhltj Is-netlt to
their urticular -tsiions, it would
merely le stating that which is true,
what the etlitor himself knew to be
true and w hat his r-.iders also knew
for the truth. We hold that it Is the
duty of an editor to educate his read
ers. The public prs,s ha u higher
duty than (lie mere publication of
daily news; it should be fearless,
and, above all, truthful, which it
cannot t without advocating that
the sugar bounty is and has Iss-n ol
direct IsMietlt to the sugar growers.
A IliitUh Hear Usrdeii.
The fits light which took place in
tin British h.ne of commons on
Thursday night, when the hour
came which had Imsmi fixed for the
closure of debate on the Home Rule
bill, has never Issmi paralleled in the
proceedings of any modern deliliera
tlve body. There have lieen exciting
j scenes in our own congress, ami in
various state legislatures; hut never
has there been a free fight, partici
pated lu by n large numlsT of ineni
liers, resulting in knockdowns, black
eyes, and so on, which was the
result of the melee in the commons.
Joseph Chamberlain, the tory lead
er, In his closing words, made a ref
erence to Gladstone as a Herod. A
howl went up from the Irish benches,
and T. P. O'Conner yelled "Judas!"
at Chamberlain. Then the row
began, and from the cable accounts,
it must have been as disgraceful as a
drunken riot at Donnybrook fair.
Members grossly insulted one anoth
er, men were knocked down and
tumbled under the lienches, blows
were given and received, and the
sergeants-at-artns were powerless to
control the furious throng of fighters.
The chairman of the committee
was obliged to summon the speaker of
the house, before that body could pro
ceed to business, and pass the re
maining clauss of the bill through
Our British cousins have always
