iHOOD RIVER, OR. FEB. 10, 1B94.
TO STOP 1 SKIIiT-DAXCIXa.
A bill has been introduced in the
"Massachusetts legislature, entitled "An
:act for' the suppression of indecent
dances in -public places."-' It provides
that "no woman shall appear at a pub
.lic performance in a dress the skirts of
which do not come within at, leant four
finches of the floor, and. the' waist of
which is so constructed that any pat
of her person is exposed below the
:tiock." The second part says: "No
woman shall appear in tights, or ap
ipear at public performances in high
Ikicking, serpentine, hip or skirt danc
ing." ; "v
The question of what is decent and
'what is indecent can hardly be Fettled
while the introducer of this bill in
question Axes the line at which a dress
shall terminate at four inches front the
"'.floor, his more sensitive colleague might
: insist on two, one or no inched at all
With regard to the neck exposure, it is
'quite as difficult to fix the line of do
rmurcation; unless, . indeed, the - bill
; should provide for having the low-
t water mark, so to speak, of each female
:jneck 'meandered. Decency nor inde-i-cency
consists neither in dress nor lack
- of it. . Thersi'ces said of Cressid, although
-tloaked, "Her' eye, her hand, nay, her
.. doth neen out throuch everv ioint and
. motive of her- body." Decency may
: show itself in a low-necked dress, and
: indecency may exhibit itself with two
.yards of train. There is such a thing
; as carrying decency to the point of in
decency, as the old maid did when she
- put pantalettes on the piano. The Dill
itself is indecent, for while;forbidding
women to appear .as stated, it says
i nothing about the girls, from which it
; appears that the munlet -who intro
duced the bill is affrighted , by iiide
.cency only when it is of age, v . ,
A meeting ot prominent citizens was
Iheld at Boston, February 6th, to pro-
mote the establishment of international
rbimetalism, and a representative com
: mittee was selected to push forward the
"work. President Andrews of Brown
i university -was elected chairman. ' The
; promoters of the movement are opposed
to the free coinage of silver, but believe
that the repeal of the purchasing clause
of the Sherman act affords an excellent
opportunity for advancing the" cause of
bimetalism. They think the needs of
commerce will soon compel an interna
tional use of silver as well as of gold.
'The committee includes merchants,
legislators, national and state; profess
ore, lawyers, railroad presidents and
trustees of large concerns. In order to
further the objects, a series of lectures
. and public discussions wfll be arranged
:and a great quantity of circulars dis
' tributed broadcast. . .'"
One cause of the financial stringency
in this state is given in the Orqgonian
of a recent date. The De Moss family
wete at the Chicago fair and made the
.air of Suckerdom redolent with the
istrainful strains and congested words of
that famous song, composed and de
composed by Henry De Moss, yclept
"Sweet Oregon. 'I Oregon securities
took a tumble when he, reached the
high notes. ' - - - ,- '
The amount of "unearned increment"
i (whatever that is) belonging to this
Journalistic aggregation is very limited,
but we will wager the comparatively
large sum of a nickel that the .populist
vote In Oregon June 4th is .going to
(surprise us old-party chaps. .Repub
licans and democrats are -divided in
.their respective parties, while ;the pops
;are as solid as a cannon ball, and they
twill strike like one, too.
It is rumored that ex-JPresident JHar.
irison, who will -soon visit the Pacific
coast for the purpose of delivering a se
.ries of lectures on constitutional.law at
the Stanford university, will combine
i business and pleasure by marrying
.Mrs. Stanford. As Mr. Harrison's
Jamily deny the report" there Js prob
ably considerable truth in the .state
ment. . . . ::'
Dr. West is being tried in,San.Fran
, cisco for the murder of Addie Gilmore'
.last ..Bepleuiber. JVallient, -who threw
-the bomb' last month .in the French
.chamber of deputies, ,had his head
chopped off, .Tuesday, This illustrates
.the difference between the two govern"
,ments in the administration of justice.
Prof. Leroy is in Washington 'with a

. THEY DISLIKE TO PAY.
The' Or eg Onian says. the income tax
is not objected to because the persons
liable object to it, but because it pries
into their privfue business. We think
our big eontirn orary is mistaken. The
principal objection every taxpayer has
to paying a tux is that it takes his
.money to do it. In the same issue in j
which the above statement is made, '
comparison of the taxpuying real estate
and personal property in the slate of
New York Is made, and this gives the
total taxable bonds, noti s, money and
other pergonal property in jtlie great
state of New York as being $411,413,850.
In another column of the same aper is j
(he "Statement that New York city'
banks have f()0,()i;0,000 li.ying idle.'.
An amount of money alone amounting
to nearly half the total personal prop-
erty values of the state. It will be seen j
from this that the personal property of
New York is not 'taxed at anywhere;
near the : proportionate value of real
estate. Why'. Is it because of having
their business pried into, or because
they, the owners of the personal prop- ;
erty, object to letting go of the money?
Most assuredly the latter.: The fellows
with the big incomes object to the tax
because .heretofore they have been tax
dodgers and. object to being made tax
payers. .- 1 .

mediately , on the passage of all the
branches of the fedeial government
into the hands of the democratic party,
we cannot; but attribute to that the
: In the platform upon w-hich it was
elected, it promised radical changes in
the laws, aud pronounced the policy of
protection under which the cou-itry
had prospered as unconstitutional, and,
in the interests of the few as against
the many,' and threatened to,repeal the
tax . on state baulk circulation, thus
.flooding the country with the irredeem
able wildcat money of former demo
cratic administrations. ..,'...'
: After the election the country took
the democracy at its word and began to
frame its business to meet the promised
changed conditions. Anient financial
panic ensued.- It expected free trade,
slate bank money, and will buy at free
trade prices, when-it . buys at all. It
expects its wool from Australia, its coal
from Nova Scotia, iron from Cuba, its
fruits from Italy and Germany, and
that the European' manufacturer will
come into our markets and oiler his
cheap merchandise in competition with
that produced by American labor. And
capital frightened .by the situation lies
in hiding in. bank vaults. . ;
; These conditions existed under the
administration of Mr. Buchanan, when
the government was in the hands of
the democracy: - they were predicted by
the republican party in the last cam
paign as sure to occur on the return of
that party to power, and the,, predict
ions have beeii fulfilled by , even the
shadow of the Wilson bill a mongrel
tariff measure that has passed the house
and is now before the senate, possess
ing all the defects of free trade, a tariff
for revenue and . a protective tariff,
without the virtues of either. There
is no prosperity for the country under
such a policy, should it be adopted, or
while. the threat of its adoption hangs
over us. ; ' ' . ,
..It compels the farmer, the miner,
the shepherd, the lumberman, aud the
fruitraiser to sell in a free trade market
and buy in a protected market.": It is
class legislation with a veugence, that
robs the many to enrich the few,, Its
effects upon revenues and .upon busi
ness is already apparent. For six
months the deficiency is $50,000,000;
the.administration must borrow ;money '
tb'pay runuing expenses, and business
is at a standstill.
VVTen in March, 1893, not yet a year
ag ','the i epublicans stepped down and
ou , there wai aturplunin the treasury;
the musi ' of the spindle filled the air,
to the glad accompaniment of the ham
merhis of thd. iron-worker and the
whistle of the .plowman.' 'The little
t.n dinner pail, 'about which (here was
so m jcu .concern because' of the tariff
on tin, 'was the morning-companion of
the laboring man as he went, forth to
his work. There was business activity
everywhere; a market.' for wheat, for
wool, for lumber, for coal, for fruit and
no necessity for soup kitchens. The
laborer could hold up his head, a man
am ni men, and earn a livelihood for
himself and those dependent upon
him, and' this "beeatse the policy of
protection had rescued and cousu veu
the American market, the best in the
world;for American workmen. ' .
; This pol y of protection under re-'
pu licni "rule, changed and modified
as ;xp rience -mymsted, culminated in j
the McKinley bill and produced an era j
in pio. perity wi hout peer in the his-i
torv of nations.
The question before you is, Shall we
plunge deeperjintotbis abyss of prom
ised free trade or return to the rock, of
protection, that protects every indust
ry, that bears on all alike and preserves
the dignity of , American labor? But
the country, misled for the time, by
the false tbeoree of the democratic
party have voted for a change, and the
nation today, without distinction of
party, stands aghast at the result!
The results of republican legislation
for the past 30 years have demonstrated
the fact that it is an industrial party,
whose policies are best calculated to
serve the interests of the industrial
classes. - Its first .concern is to find em
ployment for labor at remunerative
wages, and to protect ' a laborer in
his rights. That is what the work
ing man asks not charity.
"We cannot, in closing, forbear to di
rect your attention to the Hawaiian
islands, and uur, conduct as a nation
toward them.. The best men of Haw
aii, representing all classes, and through
the veius of whose American ancestors
coursed the blood of thobe patriot men
who promulgated (he sacred principle
that it was an inborn right to over
throw a tyrannous and corrupt gov
ernment,, had dethroned a licentious
queen and established a, provisional
government,' looking to anuuexation
to the United States. The Stars and
Stripes were unfurled to the breeze,
while our .American republic was
asked to extend to them : a helping
band, and to give to them a part in
our great nation, or recognize them in
their righteous efforts to become a free
and inilepenbent people. A republican
president accepted the trust, and a re
publican congress would have gladly
extended to the struggling people the
strong protective arm of American civ
ilization. But a change in our nat
ional '.'administration, has wrought
wonderful' results. A' man who has
had more experience in hauling down
than in running up the old flag, was
given extraordinary, unwarranted and
unheard-of power, and forthwith dis
patched to the islandsand under whose
direction, sanctioned by the president,
the stars and stripes were hauled down,
a republican and free government at
tempted to be overthrown aud a base
and corrupt monarchy, ever hateful to
a free-born man, attempted ' to be re
established in its stead. ;
We believe we voice the sentiments
of every patriot when we allege that
this cowardly and un-American con
duct upon the part of a democratic ad
ministration ought to meet the coiir
demnation of an outraged people.
