Portland nt I 7 :0 a m Lv .V)am Lv I2I.1PM Ar WOOL AM TARIFF An tr-p.ii tirrsHiuU'iit of the C'leveluml In.l-r sty. that there are 5.0n).uim) wunds of wool stored t The ImIIh ulone fjr want oft runrk ,.f It.iv.r -iv that owlns to the proiirfs t of the alx)litin of duty on wool, thev innm.t take it except on a frve turirT 1.U-.U. Those persofw who art" casting aU.ut for thecuw of the prt--nt busine! depreica should nmke a note of thl. It siniDlv a t vi-U-al ca-s?. Manufactorl of various kinds all over the countt are shutting down or running shorW hours Us-ause they dare not buy raw umterial or ats umulate atx-k with tirin n-form (?) looming In the ntr distaius'. Tliis Is the fruit of the IviuiMTHtic miiss-s last XovemU-r, which, it was vaunti-d, would hriru; pMMTity. We h:id pnwH'rity lfr foie that misfortune, Jut we have had depression nimv. The shado'v of a legislation, which, it Is feurec, will cripple many of our Industrie has darkened the land. How will it le if the Mow actually falls? Our 11 hoite is that we may have large ly discounted the disaster, anil that, after reflection, the DemiK-ratic conr gresH may ismtlnut to refrain from tarifT tinkering. Rut there is somelhing more irj the communii'atioii of thia Oregon correspondent. lie mentions prl vate business adviws received from Australia haying that nineteen mil lion jxiunds of wind are held there awaiting free admisMion into the I'nited 8tats, which is expected as sK)ii as coiignNH meets. That i iilKiut liins' times the average annual product of California for the last 20 years, and considerably over one third the average of the United Stales for that eriod. What will be the result to our wool growers If this Australian stock is piled upon our market? Then there will be a year ly product of nearly 400,(100,000 to follow, of which a considerable portion will of course lie diverted to our shores, although the bulk has heretofore gone to the United King dom. It is held that this storing of wool was one of the immediate causes of the rtss-nt bank failures in Aus tralia. Of course, it was not the chief cause, but such a locking up of nijiit.il would certainly affect the financial situation, especially at a critical time. The evil effects of Ix-mneratic success are indeed far reaching. .S. K. Rulletin. The South Feel It. The Smith, the great free-trade Southern wet ion of the country, has felt and is fisding the disasterous t'fTects brought iiX)ii the country by the ehs-tion of a free-trade President and a free-trade Congress. The jsHiple there are leginning to clamor that "tin; McKinley tariff should be left alone." It would sts?m, then, that industries are tieing built up in the Suith, that mauufactoris have Usn cstablisheil there, that workmen have Usn emjiloyetl earning wages sieut there to build up and improve that section of the country ; in short, it apienrs tliat the South feels that protection is absolutely necessary for the maintenance of its existing condition for progress and prosjierily. We are glod of this j the more the South takes to building up, the more etvsntinl it w ill find protection to be. The following from the Wilmington, IV'I., Xews, August 31, shows it: The merchants are holding back In giving orders; the manufactures are dtvreasing their output and dis charging men j the idle workmen are withdrawing their havings, put aside for a "rainy day," from the savings banks ; the morchanta are not dcMsiting as much money as usual in banks owing to a falling off of sales; foreign manufacturers are flooding our markets with goods in order to get a fisjthold here in an ticipation of free-trade. This Is the secret of the whole trouble. The McKinley tariff should be let alone. Iron (aslng for Pillar. In building the new government quarantine station at Diamond Point near Port Townsed, Wash., the government will cause the lower portion of the piles to be encased In a cast iron cover to protect them from the ravages of the toredo. The castings are 14 inches in diameter and some are 3. feet long and weigh C.0O0 pounds. There are to be thirty six of these poles, and the casings are now leing cast by a foundry on the Sound at the rate of two a day. This will tie the fir it wharf of tho kind to be built on Puget Sound. The plan is to drive the piling timber and then slip the iron casting over them, filling in each one w ith cement, and it is believed that there will be practically no end to the service of the pil" so constructed. It is thought that the cement will even tually liccome so hardened as to nsdst wear of the elements and the boring of the toredo, even when iron has worn away, and it will likely hud to the construction of similar wharves at other port on the Sound Pacific Ruild.r. There are employes mean enough to take advantage of the money market, even w hen it does not directly effect them,' to reduce wages. I Flghtlnc In a Foe. "I suppie I never .told you I w as in the war?" liegau the mau with tiae ginger beard. The grocer 'lowed, by gemlni, that that was one of the few things the man with the ginger beard hadn't told Lira yt. vteii, i wa. our nattery wa on of the first that ever used the percussion shells, them .shells with a cap In the end of 'cm, and don t bu,t till they strike. You've heard of the battle of Raker's Ford, I sup pose?" The grocer had to admit that he had not. "Well, I will tell you about it. It was there that we had the funnv ex perience with them percussion shells, iou see, we had Just got the range of the place, and was a-droppin' a few shells Jist to let the Johnny Reba know what a new snap was lalng sprung on 'em, when up come one of ine iiurnuest logs you ever ss'. Couldn't 4 feet ahead of your nose. Rut, as we had the range, we kejt pluggin' away, but somehow we didn't apiear to hear none of the shells bust any more, but as that was none of our business, we jlst kep a flrin' till the whole 700 shells was fired. Then we stopjied and waited for mornin'. With the risiu' of the sun the fog nateraly lifted all of a suddent. Then there begun the da rudest racket in that reliel camp that ever greeted the ears of man. An' what do you suppose it was? Them there shells hadn't lit in the town at all when we was flrin' them the night Is fore; they had Jist all lodged up on the top of the fog; and when the sun struck It they commenced droppin' down among the Johnnie an' goln' off. Maybe you'll think I'm a liar-" "Gosh I no." 'Maybe you'll think I'm a liar; but the only thing that come out of that aw ful place alive was an army mule, an' his hide was so full of scrap iron that he wasn't no use ; the sharp p'ints of the iron Jist nateraly cumrr 10 puss's anv harness we could put on him. It was such a aw ful niasnacree that there never was no report of it made for fear of losin' the sympathy of the civilixed world. It came into the gnesVs mind to ask the man with the ginger Istrd fwrif It was he had neviT applied for a en.sion on the grounds of total disability of the veracity, but he thought lietter of it, and easisl his mind by decapitating a cockroach with the cheese knife. Rradstreets, commenting on the gold shipments from Europe to America remarks: Gold shipments from Euroe to this country on an unexiiectedly large scale have !een the salient feature in the financial situation this week. Upwards of fldjOOO.OOO is in progress of transfer from the Rank of England and other European sources of supply, the movement having been rendered jossible by the hivy foreign buying of securities and brendstuffs on the decided breaks which have lately occurred In our markets. Another important devel opment Is the tendency of national banks to take out additional circula tion, to which forced sales of govern ment bonds by savings institutions have given a further impetus. Wall street, prompt as usual to discount the future, has already exhibited its belief in the beneficial influence of these factors, the fears of the over grown speculative lear Interest add ing force to the upward tendency of stock values. This is the more not iceable because the actual effects of either gold Imports or of increased bank circulation are necessarily sub ject to delay. At the moment the most disturbing feature in the posi tion is the scarcity of actual currency resulting from the steady absorption ol funds which has been in progress since the subsistent distrust made its appearance, and which has now at tained a degree calculated to serious ly aggravate the distress of financial and buslneas Interests, even If, as Is to bo hoped, it Is the last develop ment in the case and the precursor of a return to normal conditions. Why She Was Sorry. f From th Detroit Free Pres1 He had been worshiping her for months, but had never told her, and she didn't want him to. He had come often and staid late, very late, and fthe could only sigh and hope. He was going away the next day on his snmmer vacation and he thought the last night was the time to spring the momentous question. He kept it to himself, however, until the last thing. It was 11:30 by t lie clock and it was not a very rapid clock. " Miss Mollie," he said tremulously, "I am going away to-morrow." "Are you?" she said with the thought lessness of girlhood, as she gnzed wistfully at the clock. "Yes," he replied. "Are you sorry ?" "Yes, very sorry," she murmured. "I thought you might go away this evening. Then she gated at the ' clock wistfully and lie tobl her good night. HOW A It 1 Ma Kl X WAS STOPPED. Washington t"in furnish some! storic of the depression. There is a j very wealthy and Very nervous lady 1 here who drew 3no,UOO out of aj bank. Having gut the big bundle of. money she did not know w hat to do the w ith It. So she rented a box in vault of the bank and put the money into it. And there It lies olsjut 20 ft-et distant from where it was before the lady drew her c heck. One Washington bank has had a run, aud the suddenness with which that run colliip-ed was funny. A man w ho had been refused a lxtn went among department clerks ami advised tin in to take their money out of an institution which is largely iwtroiiized by that clas of deposit ors, ho at the noon nsit the clerks flocked into the bank with their books. The prcsjileiit is a gissl dind of a talker, lie is much in demand where ready sssh making is wanted. When he saw that crowd of excitisl men and women come up to his Lank window he ordered all businesji stnicd, walked out into the mllst of the throng and climlied on a table. "My friends," lie snid, in that same easy manner with which he harms a Sunday school or a citizens' mass mi etinir. -this run is scnt less. and while the deisisitors of this in - stitution are in sch a disturbs! mental condition 1 do not consider they are fit to trun-act their own business, and this company is much betterahleto look after their interests than they are themselves. Rut I appreciate the int'onvenieiiiv that may arise in some cases from an in ability of dels isi tors to get hold of some ready money, and as I under stand that a large number of these depositors want to get funds to start for the World's Fair tomorrow I w ill say that any such who present their checks will get their money at once. Rut you had letter be careful, for there was one woman who came down here on Saturday in a state of panic and afier drawing out ,.00, which was all she had, went home and died of heart disease. I sis? some of you looking rather pale now, and I would advise you to go slow." The crowd chuckled and dwindled away. Tho run was over. It has not leen resumed. The excitement was prolatbly the shortest livisl of any during the present panic, but while it lasted it was hysterical, t ne agitabsl woman filled out a check for her balance, and stood with poised pen looking at the blank line for her signature. For a minute and a half crplcxity was expis'ssisl in her face; then she turned toiin acquaintance and t"'ggsl her to tell her her own name. Washington banks show the third highest reserve of the cities of tho country. Where so much ready money is turned loose as is the case through the government's disbursement of salaries it is almost impossible for a scarcity of currency to exist. Xews Rciiort. An Iowa tilrl. It is said that a Marshalltown, Iowa girl has taken a novel way of decid ing between three lovers. She wrote their names on as many eggs, w hich a faithful hen is now trying to warm into life, aud the young man whose name is on the egg w hich hatches 'first will secure the prize, heart and hand. It's a (use in which the hen has the moit serious part of the per formance considering the weathtr. This girl certainly "has a hen on," and it may truly Is- said that the man who wins will lie henpecked from the start. A thousand men recently reached Chicago on n freight train. They were from Colorado anil were dis charged mechanics and miners. Their story is graphically told by one cf the number In this paragraph: "We came from Colorado. I am a machinist. The mines shut down there and factories Is-gan to close. Governor Waite made his memorable speech aliout the coming revolution, in which he was going to ride in blood to his horse's bridle. Then capital became timid, banks "busted," factories dosisi, and lulior lccame as frightened as capital, and now every workingmnn w ho can get out of the state is going. The men in this crowd are not t amps. They are mechanics and workers in mines. Colorado will ss the day when it would like to have them back in its limits. We have Is-aten our way on freight trains to Chicago. Here we will separate and lie swallowed up in this great city. We will probably not ls noticed, as the city is so large, and we rxpis t to get work at our various tr.td". A serious mob in Frts.no, (Wifor nia, was averts a few days ago by the g'l Judgment of a few men ex- on iowl ut the rkrtit time. A rmtrd of .loo idle laborers had fallen in llnei and started for Chinatow n, w hen a substantial citizen induis-d the ban ner liearers to turn off in another direction. Y ork in the vineyards is about ready, ami it is thought by discharging Chinese, employment ran I found for the idlo whites). Oregon's Attraction. In the gallery of the lils-ntl arts building at the World's l air, the central figure of a group in the edu cational exhibit of Oregon Is a finely executed photograph of Governor Pennoyer. Th's Ilkenes Is shown in ' devoted by ,( regyii to the state board of education of w hich the governor Is president. This photo graph U the subject of more remark, crhaps, than any of Oregon's exhili ils. The multitudes pass by to ad mire the likeness or to criticise the governor.
