on a serious character, for In that

Senator Faulkner, of West Virgin
ia, wants to have all the silver bullion
which the Sherman law has brought
to the treasury coined into dollars
which would muke between 170,000-
000 and SU,INNJ,INI0 of these pieces
aud then he wants to have enough
additional silver purchased and
coined to bring the silver circulation
of the country up to sot),0O0,000.
The expansion in silveri.thus pro
vided for would be in the neightior
hood of f liK),(KM,iMM). Just why he
wants silver to reach this particular
figure, or, when nuchlng It, to stop
there, he has not explained, l'er
haps he Imagines the country would
be following the French example in
securing this Immense stM'k of silver,
for France's monetary system seems
to have strong attractions for the
sllveritcs recently. This would bo a
larger silver circululiou than Frmut
has, but as this country is larger
than Frunce Faulkner doubtless
thinks we could stand it. Rut one
little point iu the French scheme Is
strangely overhsiked by the West
Virginian. France's gold circulation
is fs(Mt,oiMi,0(io. or about ; 1 50,oon,000
or 1175,000,000 greater than ours,
w hile he makes no provision for a
proportionate Increase, or for any
increase In our gold.
Hut supposing we secure this f.100
000,000 of additional silver, how
does Faulkner suppose that the
(ssiple are going to get any larger
proportion of it than they ure getting
now or than they will continue to
get under existing conditions? There
would be more silver ht ih-imoii then
than there is now, but would or
could each person get hold of more of
It on this account ? Would tho gov
ernment donate any of it to the
iK'ople, or would the government
pay any moro for services rendered
to It than it does now'.' If not, how
are the people to get their hands on
this extra silver? The only way
that the government could put out a
larger amount of silver than it docs
now would be to put out a smaller
amount of gold or paper redeemable
directly or indirectly in gold. I!ul
when would tho advantage to the
people come iu under this arrange
ment ? If they jot more silver they
would ncs-easMrily have to get less
gold ; and even the gentlemen of the
Faulkner school of finance have
never yet proclaimed that silver Is
Is'tter than gold or have asked for it
in business In preference to gold.
There are many men even iu this
age of free schools and "university
extension" who Imagine that by
ome process of financial legerde
main an increase in the output of the
government's mints and printing
presses will increase the amount ol
money iu the people's jxickets.
They can not, or will not under
stand that unless a person inherits,
finds or steals money, or receives it
as a gift, he w ill have to work for it,
and the fat ilities for getting it in the
other ways than as pay for work
would not be increased by piling
large sums of it up in the treasury.
Some sort of service would have to
ho rendered the government iu order
to get at this extra money, even it
the trea-ury assets were doubled. If
it be urged that an increase in the
volume of money would lead to an
Increase in wages, the answer Is thai
quality in money counts for more
than quantity, and quality of the
higher sort is an attribute in which
silver is lacking. Even if Faulkner's
proposition were douhksi in scope,
and $l'.IH),000,(KM Instead of fJOO.OOO,.
OOOextri silver were coined, the ag
gregate wealth of Faulkner's state,
or of any other state, would not lie
increase! a particle, and tho people
who are resixinsililc for Faulkner,
and who sent him to congress under
the delusion that he was a statesman,
would not have their assets expand
ed to the extent of a single dollar.
The rfdf ral Election mil.
The forcing of tlrta bill to repeal all
federal flection laws to the front in
the house of representatives is sim
ply an effort or the free silver men to
prevent the resal of the Sherman
law. There is no other reason for
bringing it up at this time. There
are 110 elections for representatives
this fall; there are no election to
which federal supervision applies.
If any revision Is needed, let it come
at some convenient settsnn hereafter.
The demix rats w ill find that this
bill will prove something of a Issiin
erang. The fisleral election laws are
In no sense tyrannical nor unneom
sary. If they have been abused by
federal officials, remove the latter ; if
there is any unjust or unfair provi
sion amend It ; but there is no reason
for swiping awsy all the legal
checks upon fraudulent voting and
dishonest counting cmlxslitsl in the
United States statutes. To do such a
thing simply means etarting an agi
tation that w ill end with the adop
tion of more stringent laws than
those now in force.
Mr. W. L. Ward threshed an

THE KEITBI.UA AI lsttrj.
About a dozen more or lest con
spicuous republicans, most of whom
are Iu one or the other branch of
congress, and who represent all sec
tions of the country, have been glv
ing their views as to the Issues and
party prospects of Isyo. The ma
jority of them, of course, think that
the tariff will be at the front at
that time, and many of them believe
that the tlnunclal question will be of
absorbing Interest wiren the next
presidential campaign Is entered up
on. The labor question In some of
its many phases will, as a few of
them think, be more prominent than
it has thus far been In a national
canvass, while the question of honest
elections, according to others, will
take a leading place In the campaign
Almost all the persons taking part
in the syiiiMshiin take a hopeful
view of republican chances If the
proper candidates be put up by the
republican convention, and the
canvass be conducted with a reason
able degree of vigor and Intelligence,
they believe that republican triumph
may bo looked for with confidence.
Ordinarily estimates of chances in
canvass three years away, even
when made by close and experienced
observers, are not to bo relied on
very Implicitly. Personal preference
too, as in this case, is apt to affect the
view to a certain extent, and to bias
the Judgment. Tho factors in the
situation are so numerous and so
difficult to gague acurately that a
forecast at this time for lbiNi w ill not
be very satisfactory to anylxsly.
Yet it is undoubtedly safe to say
that the chances of the republicans
are nlsiut as good as those of the
democrats. Itesjionsihillty for gov
ernment for the .time being is in
democratic hands, and any mistakes
which are made as well as any finan
cial or industrial reverse which the
country may sustain will react harm
fully on that party. In constructive
legislation the democracy is not
strong. It has had very little ex
perience in running the government
nee before the war, and as a con
sequence is Is seriously handicapped
at the outset. And at present times,
when its majority in both branches
of congress Is so great, the temptation
lo blunder Is pructicularly strong.
It may lie predicted with a toler
able degree of confidence that no
party In the near future will enjoy a
long period of uninterrupted power.
The days when one party could dom-
nate the country for a dozen or
two pears, baffling all tho :en-
leavors of the other organization to
gain the ascendant, have departed,
at any rate for the time being.
Fedtralist blnnders, flagrant and re
eatcd, In the early days of the gov
ernment gave the democracy lis long
lease of sw ay, and democratic follies
and crimes long afterward put the
republican party in power and kept
it In for nearly a quarter of a century.
Hut the conditions now ure radically
different from what they were when
John Adams and James Buchanan
stepied down from the presi
dency. Neither the circumstances of
politics nor the temjier of the party
leaders are favorable to the long con
tinued ascendency of an organization.
Active canvasses, in which each
party puts its best men to the front,
and short periisls of power, are like
ly to ls the order of the day for the
immediate future. On the great
question on which the elections of the
next decade or two are reasonably
sure to turn the eoplo are separated
Into two approximately equal
divisions, and it is nusonable to
look for ft more frequent shifting of
power from one to the other party
than was known In the past. Olobe

" The fact that there was not a cheese
on exhibition at the Oregon state fair
this year ought to be enough to stir
mebody up. It certainly indicates
that something is wrong somewhere.
A state that imports so large a share
of Its butter and cheese and squan
ders vast sums of money In promot
ing the spirit of gambling among its
people by means of hoiseracing must
exjct to see hard timet. It is cer
tain that the management of the
state fair has not the slightest con
ception of tho Importance of th
dairy industry. No suitable place la
provided for the exhibits of butter,
ami cheese when there Is any, but
the exhibits are placed along a com
paratively olvacure nile, flanked by
cookies, tidies, preserves and other
articles of home production. It Is
evident that the fair folks do not
realize that in the progress of civiliza
tion the labor of making butter and
cheese Is no longer conidcred one of
the over-numerous burdens of the
busy housewife but has become a
great Industry of itwlf. Rural North
west." The fact of the matter Is, the man
agement don't know how to put the
display on exhibition. A few re
frigerators with a glass exhibition
chest placed in a prominent place,
would be a vast Improvement over
aa "obscure aisle."
SEX ATE AM) k B I SIXERS BOOM.
It Is now conceded on every hand
thut a vote in the senate is all that Is
needtsl to start such a business boom
as the country has not known in
recent years. ..tills are resuming
operations all over the country, ami
money Is being taken out of Its hid
ing places and Is drifting toward the
flnanclul centers. The sum total of
the country's activities is again on
the Increase. Money enough for all
legitimate business can be had at
lower rates than have prevailed since
the early part of the year. The lm
pression abroad is that the worst has
long since ussed, and that nothing
which can occur in the next year or
two can bring buck the distrust and
business torpor from w hit h we have
recently emerged. Confidence is re
turning, and yet its coming is slower
than was anticipated a few months
ago. I he cause of this is the uncer
tainty as to the course of the senate,
The delay in the senate Is the one
cloud w hich remains on the business
horizon. Everybody believes that a
majority of that body favors uncon
ditional repeal. 1 here lias tccii no
doubt In the public mind on that
tKiint since the house rolled up its
tremendous majority for that jKiIicy.
If it vote were to be had in the sen
ate today evcrylaxly thinks thut it
would declare for the same uction.
The silverites understand the condi
tions thoroughly, aud hence all their
efforts ure directed toward prevent
ing a vote. The uncertainty as to
when this vote will be had Is the
disturbing feature in the situation.
The doubt on this point hampers
business men in their calculations
anil retards a prompt and complete
return of industrial activity. The
stock exchange halts, the factories
which are resuming work are receiv
ing only small orders, and general
business Is, to a considerable degree,
being conducted in a hand-to-mouth
A vote by the senate is all that
separate us from a revival of trade
such us we have not seen since fifteen
years ngo. General conditions point
to a business boom like that w hich
set in on the resumption of specie
payments by the government iu
lul'J. Slocks of merchandise of all
sorts are about an low as they were
around 17, after the four or five
years of depression and liquidation
following the panic of 1873, and bus
iness in general is iu as sound and
sol in a uums us 11 was men. mere
have been rest and recuperation in
the Industrial und commercial world

only obstacle in the way has beeu
removed by an order issued from the
navy department relieving Com
mander Whiting from the command
of the Alliance, and grunting him a
month's leave of aliscncc, with per
mission to apply for an extension.
This leave, it is understood, is desired
by Commander Whiting for the pur
pose of going to San Francisco to
meet and marry his fiancee, who has
11st arrived there from Honolulu.
He applied for it a month or more
ago, but on account of the troubles in
Nicaragua, the department was un
willing to have him leave Corlnto,
where the Alliance is now stationed.
A telegram has leen received at the
navy department from Commander
Whiting stating that affairs In Nic
aragua were quiet. This was re
garded that he was anxious to get
away, and not wishing to stand
longer in the way of the happy
event, the order granting leave was
Issued and Commander T. A. Lyon
was ordered to proce from New
York to Corlnto to relieve him. Up
on Commander Lyon's arrival at
Corlnto the Alliance will start south
on her voyage around the Horn to
New York, w here she h to be fitted
upas a tralnlng-shlp. she will be
relieved by the Yorktown, which
has Just arrived at Callao, Peru.
A movement to have congress by
a constitutional amendment more
cleerly define the duties and powers
of the executive and legislative
branches of the federal govrnment
would be popular Just now. Several
senators have called attention to the
necessity for such a movement.
Claus Spre kles would have shown
wisdom had he remained away
from Washington. His personal
interests in Hawaii are too great to
make his advice either acceptable or
useful to Prexident Cleveland.

Among the fiot of the many social
exactions is that of making calls, and
It Is well to know the correct thing
to do at such times so that you may
make your visit pletisaut and profit
able both to yourself and to your
hostess. To begin with, in making a
call of ceremony It Is very bad form to
gols:fore 4 In the afternoon, 5 o'clock
being the hour considered more ele
gant by those who know what is
correct lu such mutters. To rush In
at un luopMjrtune time is ei 11 bn Hiss
ing both to you and to your hostess.
Therefore, If your friends have at
home days engraved uhii their
visiting curds It Is your duty to re
gard tho wish thus exprcsMsl, that
you will come only at those times
and not run In whenever the fancy
strikes you. Ifcwultory wills fritter
away a great amount of time, there
fore all women who profess to le lu
society at all should have "a day,"
and thus avoid many annoyances
and disapK.intments that can not
otherwise lie avoldtsl.
If, w hen you call, you find others
there, sjieak a word to your hostess
and then enter Into conversation
with some one else, as It Is very rude
to attempt to monosllze your
hostess, as. her duties on these forum)

of the personal exchange of con
fidences. If you arrive in a carriage,
leave any extra wraps outside In

keep on your outside Jacket or tiouk.

Mention was made in the Oregon-
tun a few days ago of the fact that
Arkansas had on exhibition at the
world's fair a prize apple, 14) 1 nebc
in circumference, and that the com
missioners of the state had defied Or
egon to prisluee any as large. Secre
tary Sergeant of the horticultural
board took the matter up, and called
upon fruitgrowers for a supply of
large apples. They have rescinded
heartily. Mr. Spiegl, who hits charge
of the shipment of fruit to the world's
fair, sent East last evening four ap
ples, each of which slightly exceeded
IB inches in circumference. They
were beautiful seimcns, perfectly
sound, free from blemishes and unln-
ured by worms or insect. Emil
Selia urn, an enthusiastic fruitgrower
of The Dalles, and a memls r of the
state board of horticulture, secured
an apple last week w hich measured
!. inches in c ircumferenee, and Im
mediately expressed it through to
the world's fair. This Is only a be
ginning. Mr. Sergeant thinks that
before the fair closes )regon will huve
on exhibition apphst as large as can
taloupes. Of the varieties of apple
which grow to a large size, those now
on exhibition at jhhmi river, and
w hich are to lie sent to the world's
f.ilr, all measure from 11 to 15 inches
n circumference. The Arkansas
commissioners will have to get out
