THE FIETT-CEJiT DOLLAR.
The gold standard men, to bol
ster up tbiB argument to t porson
not well acquainted with the mon
ey .question, is forever saying
"Silver Btandard countries like
Japan and Mexico are put to a dis
advantage in their trade with fore
ign countries on a gold standard
in which the latter countries are
able to use silver which costs nearly
fifty per cent less than it did in
1873 in payment for the products
of silver standard countries practic
ally paying only half as much in
their money for the products of
silver standard countries as they
paid in 1873." The purpose of this
is of course to show that countries
on a gold standard have an advant
age in dealing with countries on t
The moment a product is in ex
cess of the demand of the country
in which it is raised, the market to
, which it goes to be sold fixes its
price. The home demand hae
nothing to do with it then. To
illustrate: The price of Oregon
jrheatiB determined by the con
sumption abroad for we have as
excess of wbeat oer home con
sumption and it goes to Liverpool
for a market. There a price is fixed
and it is sold. Its value is measured
in gold, that being the standard of
the market in which it is sold.
The wheat can purchase any other
commodity but the seller prefer
to exchange it for gold. He brings
his gold to Oregon and pays his
debts with it on the gold basis.
-The Jap or Mexican does exactly
the same thing but when he pays
his debts he has just 12 to do it
with where the Oregonian had tl
If the statement of the gold stand
ard man quoted above, is correct.
The difference is simply the ap
preciation of gold due to ita selec
tion ae the sole debt paying power.
Measured in products, it has, as
ta .stated, appreciated about 100
per cent McMinnville T.-B.
' While. William Mc Kinnley has
always retained a warm spot in
the hearts of his 'countrymen on
account of his tariff views which
are eminently American, it is to be
feared that his attempt to stand on
the latest Republican platform so
far as it relates to the financial
question will act in the nature of a
wet cloth to his pretentions. His
popularities more nearly conform
to that of James ii. Blaine than
any -other man now within the
public eye. But unlike Mr. Blaine,
Mr. McKinley lacks much of our
dead statesman's political sagacity
and masterly understanding of all
pubEcuestions. Were James G.
Blaine alive today his voice would
be raised in the interest of the peo
ple. It was he who spoke more
pronouncedly than any of the rest
who participated in the demonetiza
tion of the silver act ot 18i3, and
be would not today be found stand
ing in an attitude approving the
acts of a conspiracy whose mission
of sorrow has only juet began. It
needs no pessimist to detect and
picture the ravages thus far made
by the despicabla piece of legisla
tion here alluded . to, for the
straightened circumstances and
abject poverty of the millions speak
louder than words. In the hearts
of Americans every feeling akin to
sympathy should be banished
when it comes to voting for a man
who represents or stands for the
single gold standard Tomahawk.
The silver imprint of June 24
gays: When the Imprint de
termines to do a thing, it knows
no such word as fiiL Pursuant to
request of the Imprint, about 20
8ilet Indians were in Albany
during the week for the purpose of
being interviewed upon tbe late
election, and ascertaining if fraud
was lurking in tbe ballot box in
the reservation precinct. An in
terpreter and two attorneys were
ent for, and the "Boston men,"
nd Indians got right down to
business. Each Indian was armed
claiming his right to vote. It was
learned from the Indians that there
were 125 Indian voters in the Si-
lets reservation precinct. Out of
this number 96 were avowedly for
Vanderburg, while the remaining
56 stood upon doubtful grounds.
The official returns show that just
two Iudians voted for Vanderburg.
Does this savor of fraud? Does it
bear the earmarks of a free and
honest election? The Indians are
ready to swear that they wanted to,
and believe they did vote for Van
derburg and Yaquina Bay, but
where are the votes to show it?

tinue its investigation, and there
may be some fun yet.

The boyB relate an excelent story
regarding a certain candidate's
speech while on an electioneering
tour. He had a large audience of
of ladies and gentlemen and in
course of his speech delivered him
self of the following: "Now, you
can buy a cow for $15, but you can
a better one for $20; you can
hire a school teacher for $15 a
month but it pays better to pay
$20 for a good -one. Your cheap
cow won't give much milk, and it
is the same . with your school
teacher." This brought the house

Third one will not.
A familiar word around the
theatre is "deadhead," and it iB
doubtful of many people know from
which the word came. A man
happened to come across the origin
in a curio store in Rome. Among
the many things of interest were a
number of small skulls, the size of
hickory nuts, and in asking what
they were, was told that in Rome,
of years ago, these smell Bkulls
were used as passes by the favored
few, and from the stately Roman
we got tbe slang word, "deadhead."
The Salem Post reports that ar
rangements have been completed
to contest the election of Thomas
H. Tongue. Mr. Vanderburg has
employed Dalrymple and 'Watson,
of Albany, to prosecute the case.
They haye alo requested any
electors knowing of crooked work
to report the same to these at
torneys. Political booms cost money. It
is estimated that the McKinley
boym cost over a" half of million
dollars. Even the Allison boom
cost the Iowa delegates over $5000.
