Tbe following Instructive urtiile
wa prepared for aud read before the

evenings ojo by Ml4 E. Victor, of
the public school. A friend, hearing
It and being struck with the worth
of the Information It Impart, toured
It for publication. Ed.
The land question in Ireland I of
much greater Importance tnan it
would be In many another country,
for manufacturing U almost entirely
a thing of the past, such a state of
affairs lielng brought nbout by Eng
land's free trade Holicy. The 1-opn-
I lation must live on the land nnd In
fill bj Its product-. TheilllHculth
met with lure will In- undent od
when wo learn that them am hut
tl,(HMi,(MHi acres of un ful land to fmil
over .HM),(nMi jnnple, and of thi'
only ."iMMi.ikMi Bi n's am under tillanp
an average of Imt one m-m to the
individual. Under the Ns.t of laws
such a state of atfairs would ln, to
put it mildly, Inconvenient.
Rut the be-t of laws do not govern
Ireland. The land is divided among
a comparatively Hinall numlH-r of
landlords, who are, for the most part,
habitual absentees and would an noon
think of living In heathendom s
Ireland. landlordism in Ireland
was tho creation of comiuest. The
lands were again and again conns
eated by the crown and pans-led out
to favorites. It can plead no title
whatever to maintain an unlimited
right of action In opposition to the
welfare of the people on w horn it Is
enforced. At least It can claim no
such title now that the tim 1ms
mused which insisted that the right
of conquest sun-rceded all other hu
And yet this right has stood In
the way of reform for generation
during which parliament had many
measures under consideration which
had as their object Security of Ten
ure. This was the one measure
above all others for which the Irish
tenant longed. It was regardisl al
most as an axiomatic truth that se
curity for the 'enant meant confisca
tion for the landlord.
The tenants held their lands at the
mercy of their landlords. They hail
no interest In being Industrious ami
improving the soil. If they im
proved the patch of earth on which
they worked their rent was allium
certain to be raised or they were
turned out of the land without receiv
ing any compensation for their Im
provements. The demand for land
was so great, the nts-d of It ho vital,
that men would offer any price for it.
They would offer prices which they
must have known the land would
not enable them to pay, Just as a
man will pay almost any lionus to
save his property or credit in a fin
ancial panic. And when ho had se
eurod his pi(He ho had no idea of cul
tivating it to the best of hlsjability,
for the moment It began to present
a better appearance, that moment he
might look to have his rent raised or
to be turned off in favor of some com
petitor who offered higher terms for
occupation, leaving his improve
ments to tho landlord or newcomer.
Ho was content, therefore, to merely
scratch the soil, not cultivating it.
"All the while tls-e out of every
six English writers and political
speakers were disi-ourslng gravely on
the Incurable idleness and law lessness
of tho Celtic race. The law gave
him no security for the fruit of Mr
labor and Englishmen wondered
that ho was not laborious. The law
told him that w hen he had sown he
should not ho to reap and English
men were angry that he would not
persist in sowing. Imperial legisla
tion showed Itself his fteadfast ene
my and Englishmen wondered at his
want of resjiect for law."
In one part of Ireland a better con
dition of affairs existed. Over th
greater part of Ulster the "tenant
right" system prevailed. It was a
custom merely, but it had come to
acquire something of the force of a
law. This right held 1st, that a
tenant should be allowed to remain
In undisturbed possession so long as
he paid his rent. 2d, That he should
on giving up his holding, be entitled
to comjiensation for his Improve
ments. 3d, That he should be al
low ea to sell the good will of his
farm for w hat it would I ring in the
market. Where this custom pre
vailed there wa industry and pros
perity. The observance of it was not
confined to Ulster until after the
was to coms?l many of the old land
great famine of lSI7,onecffectof which
lords who were ruined to sell their
estates, thus bringing in many new
landlords who as It afterwards ap
peared had no Idea of being gov.
creneil by the Ulster cutom.
The growing difficulties between
landlord and tenant caused the land
act of 1570 to be pasnxl. This made
the 'Ulster Tenant-right system" a
It failed to give satisfaction, how
ever, for under certain conditions the
landlord could contract with the ten
ant to make the law of no avail in
their rase, and this was so generally
done that there were more eviction
than In-fore. Yet tho bill was
of inestimable value to Ireland
for it upset the fundemeutal
theory on w hlch legislation tul ul
ways been baed In dealing with
Irelaud. It nvognlzed a certain
ow ner-.li I p on the) part of the tenant
ai well as the landlord.
The law of '7U not being sat Isfai
tory, another was pa -ties I in 'si.
By this a court was established,
which, w hen iippe-alcel to, fixes the
rent, after hearing both landlord and
tenant and havnig due regard fur the
Interests of both. This rate can not
be Increased for fifteen years.
One cluii" of the act of '70 should
lie noticed. It sought to pmvide
menus for the tenant to buy his hold
ing..j.ii t of the nioui-y In-ing IiniiiisI
him by ihe government. This was
not it success. It was claimed that
them was much corruption and
JobU-ry connectml w ith It.
There have Ins-n later bills passed,
the main feature of all being to rid
Ireland of her large land holders,
especially the ale-enti-es, by helping
the tenant to buy his hoMigi;. I!e
tween lss.'ianil ls;il about I0,(iiH,
tXXJ were applied for by tenants
to help in sts-iiriug their lands.
Not being able to legislative satis
factorily between landlord and ten
ant, tho government seeks to abolish
the relation existing In-tween them
by making each tenant his own land
lord. An excellent solution of the
difficulty, if such a thing is posclble.
We see that much has been done to
better the condition of the Irish ten
ant however unsatisfactory his pres
ent condition may In?. We hope for
yet better things for there is no lag
ging In the patriotism of acme of
Though as Americans we natural
ly feel much sympathy for any op
pressed people, we should not lore
sight of tho fact that this is,is Mr.
Gladstone has said, '"a most complex
difficult question to handle." For
whatever wrong was commiited in
years past, the present generation I
not responsible. The question Is
how to improve the condition of tin
tenant without depriving the hind
lord of his Just rights.
It may be that Englsnd will yet
do Justice to Ireland or, we can no'
tell, it may be that Ireland w li
settle then' matters lor herself after
she has obtained tint fir which s'ie
has so long striven, Home Rule.
Tho finances of the state of Oregon
are In it very Rood shae. Few
states in the union can boast of as
clean a record, financially sn-aklng
as Oregon. The present state debt
Is nothing. There is 0S, 77:1.92 out
standing warrants issued in 1 -',:!
payment of which is provided for
by state levy, and redeemable at any
time. The state's receipts for the
year ending Ih-ceniln-r 31, 102 was

the year 102 including fs7,l.)7.10

The taxation on $1W for s02 was
five mills. These receipts were ex

TheOervaise Star challenges any
stato to make a Ix-tter showing.
The state officials area conservative
class of men and it Is through their
efforts greatly that these funds are
made to realize so well. The charac
ter of tho citizens at helm of state
government should receive the
recongnition from tho eople that Is
justly dun them. The present at
tacks upon the secretary of state by

II. C. ('-astlc, formerly editor of the
Advertiser, Honolulu, who Is visit
itlng relatives at Ann Harbor, Mich.,
says it is not true that the queen was
deposed by the American mlnliter
or American fons-s. The American
forces were passive oetators of the
Conflict from beginning to end. j
Speaking of thepripistl to rein-
state the queen by this government,
Castle says It cannot be done without j
the grse.t injii-tice to hundreds of
persons who have relied upon tin j
gixnl faith of the United States. I
Tho queen's government at In-stl
would be simply a paper government ;
unless supported by American bayo
nets. Putting It back means simply '
using tho full force of the United
States government to destroy a party i
of progress and ability.

Had w... prcsel-ntul and cngn-w,
sional ehs tii ms been held this yentr
the republican would have secured
x lar.ro preponderance in the electoral
college and have curried the bouse of
representative by fully Hi major-
ltv. The truth of this statement is
made f.lain bv tho revolution which
ha4uvurn.il In ino-t of the - r
the North which have just voted,
New York changes a 4s,ihmi plural-
Ity for Flower In WJI, and a 1iJ,(nm
plurality for Cleveland in ls'JJ, to a
republican lead v( about 70,1'sk) in
ls;c! for Rart Ictt f'-r curt of apali
judge, and of :iii,isx) tor the n-t o!
the state ticket. Ohio, whh-h gave
Ollt- electoral Vote to ( K vehtlld ill
ls!i2, and vthieli f-ave Harrison a
lead of only Io72 on the nit of the
electoral ticket, rolls up a plurality
of almiit 7o,immi for McKinley, a mar
gin which is more than twice as
broad as that gained by any other
candidate for the L'ove mor-hip In
that state since Hrough, in 1Si'i3, over
whelmed the Copperhead leader
These are the change in two of
the most iiui'ort.tnt states which
have Just voted. Iowa, which elec
ted a democratic governor tw ice in
Miivesf.ion, ami :wasachusetts w men
did this three times, have given
heavy pluralities for republican exec
utive. Roih these states were car
ried by Harrison, but they give
larger majorities to the republican
candidates for governor this year
than they did to him. The magni
tude of the republican triumph in
Iowa is r uilered specially significant
by the prominence of the prohibition

In many of

come in very slow ly. It Is a good
