that the tanners do not know what they

dispute the assertion that the fanners of
eastern Oicgon.as well as other sections
of this and other states, have not been
treated fairly by the political parties,

THE NATIONAL CAPITAL.
Washington Cossip from Our Special Cor -
l'Vr l!ic BriioET.
'Che belief that Mr. Blaine's resigna
tion as secretary of state is impending
has heroine very strong within the last
few days. It has been known for some
time that Blaine is dissatisfied with the
eourso of the administration. His rola-.
lions with the president have never
been very (dose. They were never
thrown together to any extent in public
life before the incoming of the present
administration. They are men of radi
cally different temperament. Their po
litical methods ami training ae as
wholly diU'uient as any two men in
public life. The points of sympathy be
tween them are very few indeed. The
consequence of this state of aflairs has
been the outcropping of frequent diverg
encies of opinion is to the policy of the
administration in matters coming within
Blaine's special province as secretary of
state, as well as in (lie other depart
ments. The death of his son Walker, it is be
lieved, will furnish an additional and
very strong reason to Mr. Blaino for
quitting at once Ins place in the Btuto
department. "No one who had occa
sion to go to tho state department,"
said a member of congress to your cor
respondent yesterday, "could fail to bo
struck witli tho fact that Mr. Blaine de
pended largely on his son. Mr. Blaine
is no longer willing to burden himself
witli the amount of work which he
thought nothing of doing when he was
younger, lie is broken in health, and
now that his son is dead I believe that
he will remain in the state department
but. a very short time.
Tho republican majority in the United
Slates senate will get itself suspected of
mmiarcliial sympathies the lirst tiling it
knows. It shows a disinclination to en
courage the multiplication of republics
on the earth. It refuses to vote for rec
ognition of 1 1 10 new republic of Brazil,
and tho commitlco on foreign relations
has icportcd adversely ISeniitor Call's
resolution looking to the establishment
of a Cuban republic.
Doing a great woik in an unobtrusive
way is the international American con
gress, still in session at tho big U'allach
mansion. Sinco the i lo;-ing of the holi
days the organization of tho conference
has been perfected. Kvery member of
the body has been intent on arriving
at some practical and mutually benefi
cial understanding from which legisla
tion will be given an oppoitunity to
spring. There are daily meetings of
the confereiitial subdivisions, and three
times a week tho entire membership
meets and hears w hat has been accom
plished. What little there may have
been of friction always good-natured
has been entirely worn away, and now
there is a a harmony of endeavor which
may result in great good to tho repub
lics of this hemisphere.
Vice-President Morton is now being
roundly abused by the partisan press
because he sees lit in an elegant and
dignified way to perform tho social du
ties that properly belong to one occupy
ing his ollicial position. That Mr. .Mor
ton is a high-minded, honorable man
goes without saying, lie tills the second
highest ollico in tho gift of tho American
people. In every important position to
w hich ho has been called be has given
faithful, able und honorable service.
No repiesentative abroad ever reflected
greater credit upon his country than did
Mr. Morton as minister to France.
There is neither sense nor justice in
abusing him because bo is a man of
wealth. No ono accuses him of having
accumulated his fortune by other than
honorable business methods. Ho has
none of tho airs of wealthy aristocracy
about him, and rich though he he he
has always stood close to the people,
lie cannot be injured by tho attacks of
the dyspeptic in tho partisan press.

The Washington legislature is now

ijtmittn. Members of Washington's legislature
don't give any chance Sileott within the

funic The most worthless legislative body
that ever came together is now in ses
sion in the new state of Washington. If
it received its just deserts, a majority of
its members would he sent to the asy
lum, a number to the penitentiary, aiid
the lalance to their homes, with the ad
monition that they stay there until they
had sense enough to associate with good
company. i'nt Cnycoiidii,
The legislature is in a fair way to break
up in a row. tine half of tho members
are accusing the oilier half of jobbery
and boodlery, and vice versa. Was there
ever sm h an assemblage of law-makers,
so-called, in any slate? For utter sense
lessnci s, tomfoolery and disgust, it takes
the bun. The people will have cause to
rejoice whenever it does break up, in a
row or otherwise, and the sooner the
adjournment the greater w ill be the re
joii ing. ( Vn.r ( 'ewiiiom r.
The legislature is devoting too much
time to things of small importance. If
the session is to come to an end within
a reasonable time, there must be less
attention to minor and incidental mat
ters and more to things of importance.
For example, three mouths have passed
and still no definite arranirenient has
been made for the state prifiting. Time
enough has been wasted in talking

That was a very excellent measure

perform their duty. It would biing
