'!The United States senate ban a fetifb
Jknown as "senatorial courtesy," whieh
lit worships blindly. In attempting to
appoint a justice of the supreme court
in place of Justice Blatchford, who
vns appointed from New York, (he
-.president mimed first Judge Horn
iblower of that 6tate, whom it seciiis
was distasteful to Senator Mill. The
.piolection of the fetish whs invoked
lund "senatorial courtesy" decided that
the president could not appoint nNew
York man to office without the consent
.of the senators of that state. The pres
ident then sent in the name of Peck
ibum, alsoof New York; but Hill was
Dot satisfied and the fetish whs agai n
invoked to Peckham's undoing. The
president then selected : a man .from
.Xiouisiuna, Senator White! a devotee of
senatorial courtesy, and he was prompt
ly confirmed. This senatorial courtesy,
.of which the public has hoardso much,
is of an odd brand, as it Is sihipiy that
.courtesy due from one senator to an
other. What the country would like
.toseeis an exhibition of that courtesy
.due from one gentleman to .another;
.that courtesy which every .citizen owes
to the chief officer of the nation; that
..courtesy which the dignified devotees
.of d d foolishness need to he' intro--ducsd
to, the courtesy that is due to
the people whose business they are sent
to Washington to transact. Senator
I Hill has succeeded in. preventing the
appointment of a man fioui his state to
; the supreme bench, and lie has also
hown the country how despotic and
dangerous a power the senate is. He
iias demonstrated that the- supreme
i beuch of the Uuited States jiiay be left
-vacant unless the. "president .chooses to

"The time when, senators will be elected

The horticulturists met at Spokaue
last week and had what the newspapers
.call an interesting meeting. .'e found
;at tha first glance we aaveaf the report
of the business done' that S. A. Clarke
.bad been elected secretary, wild there
was no use iuvestiguting further.- The
people of this county, at the solicita
tion of Mr. Clarke, ;shipped.seveiitl car
loads of plums to Chicago. . They
brought, "by wholesale, about half a
.cent a pound, and retailed at -0 cents a
pound. The little difference of nine
teen cents and a half on pound
will require some explanation before
Wasco county fruit growers will trust
.any organization of which S. A. Clarke
is an officer. We do .not Lelieve, nor
do we mean , to convey the idea, that
Mr. Clarke is dishonest, tut we think
.be is a theorist, a dreamer of .dreams, a
writer of misleaders for the Oregonictn,
.in this case being literally the blind
leading the blind.' Mr. Clarke dan de
scribe beautifully apples that lie cannot
.grow, utid he makes the mistake of
applying his long list of scientific fer
tilizers to bis crop of language ins'tead
.of to his orchard. The Spokune con
vention might have "gone. further and
fared worse" in its selection of a secre
tary, but it- would have ' to go a long
journey indeed to do so.
The storm which has just passed ex

fall was exceptionally heavy, and in

Chris Evan, the notorious California

of which such robbersare made.

ator Hill and Ihe state of New York on

of all nations. It !s rliown by 1 he gov-
eminent statistics that the per capita
capital of immigrants to. , this country
for the I aft quarter of a century has
not averaged twenty-live dollars, hence
this addition to our population must
immediately become employees, and
not employers of labor. How then,
with this constantly increasing compe
tition in the labor market can it be ex
pected to maiutuin wages at the former
standard? '
Suppose, for example, a restrictive
immigration law was enacted prohibit
ing the landing of any immigrant pos
sessed of less than $10,000. Under such
a law the immigrant would immedi
ately bebome an employer and at once
remove from the labor market, instead
of adding to it, a portion of its surplus
stock. As matters are at present new
brawn is constantly luing added to the
already monstrous surplus, an 1 so long
as this continues human genius can not
restore the - salaries, of foim?r times.
An over plus of anything creates de

'Financial legis'i.tioi), one way or an

will tariff laws effect it very much.
Congress may legislate on these quest
ions until the crack of doom, but just
so long as. we import empty pocke's
and hungry stomachs, bauds will not
remain idle if by an undercut in wages
they may be set to work. .. . ,
The above is taken from the Portland
Sunday Mercury, a staunch republican
paper, and it is so seldom that we find
anything ot a political character in a
republican newspaper ' that .we can
heartily endorse, that we feel in duty
bound to acknowledge the fact when
it occurs. It expresses our sentiments
perfectly. The way to "protect Amer
ican labor" is to shut out foreign labor,
not foreign goods. Nor is this, cruel to
ihe foreiguer. . Under existing circum
stances he does not improve his condi
tion by coming here, because so many
of his fe.lows have come, that this
country can no longer give him em
ployment at big wtiges.' The foreigner
has caused this conditio i; has come
here until every occupation is over
crowded. The laboring population has
outgrown the employing population.
The country is still growing but not
fast enough to absorb, the horde of
brawn and inusclo that yearly over
runsit. We have no objection to a
foreiguer, for the reason that ho is a
foreigner; but we object to his eominsr,
because it xis against the interests dl the
foreigner now here, as much as against
the citizen. When immigration is
stopped, American labor will bo pro
tected, but not before. ' :

fronts the people of Illinois, The etat&
should tako hold of it vritli resolution
and upon a troad gaugo plan. Thero is
CO adequate reason for tho impassability
cf many, of our common roads. The
we;;t has built rjreat cities, railroads and
workshops. Illinois has been in the front
rank in all of these improvements. There
la no excuse for her being behind in her
road policy particularly as her agricul
" i
ture is tho basi3 of her prosperity.
it t
secma almost incredible that we have.
made so little progress in tho business of
roadmaking. This question should in
terest tho farmer mora than any one
else, for the reason that he suffers much
actual financial loss from bad roada.
As a result of impassable roads the
bring tho best prices. In other words, be,
must. sell when "he can get to a sell:
place and not when the best price is ob-.
tainablo. ' The railroads also are deeply
interested in 'securing good road3. As1
things are now the railroads aro swamped,
with grain for shipment when good
roaci3 enable tho farmer . to deliver his
grain to them, but let the weather make
the roads bad, and the farmer, being un
able to haul over them, ceases to bring
his grain to market, and the railroad and
its cars are idle. . For this reason alone
many railroads are compelled to have an
unnecessarily large number of cars. Bad
roads congest the grain business into the
periodic spells of good, roads, and this
necessitates higher charges for the serv
ice of transportation when it is rendered.
In addition to all this teaming over bad
roads is hard on the horses, hard on the
wagon and hard on tho farmer himself."
"What have you to say concerning the
expenso of building good roads through
out the state?
Thatia .a most difficult problem toJ
deal with, However, it may be set down
as a principle of right and justice that
those who are ' benefited by the good
roads should pay. for them. But a good
road policy would bo of general benefit

fore, that some of the expense should be
borne by the state at large. In addition
each county might have a local tax for
tho same purpose. Townships likewise
should have a tax. But it would be un
fair to a township to compel it to build
rairto a townsnip to compe. it to ouna
a lot of bridges over a stream mainly for
It w-ould bo for such a purpose that n
general county, tax might be levied. In
addition to this, property, farms espe
cially, that aro conspicuously benefited,
should bo made to pay a. special assess
ment. All of this, however, is very
crude. I only suggest it as perhaps a
feasiblo plan. I would not like to be con-'
sidered as having reached final conclu-j
signs on this phase of the matter.", ' ,
"Would a good road policy upon the
part of the state greatly increase state
tasesT , ' . , -. '
"That would depend upon the policy
adopted. If we -were to undertake to build
good roads nil over Illinois at once the
cost would bo great and would neces
sarily heavily increase taxation. : But
Buch a policy could not bo .agreed upon
or maintained. . I apprehend that wiih'a i
careful and economical administration it j
the state affairs general taxation need bo j
but little increased, if increased at all, in
order to begin a road- policy. And it
should bo considered that money expend- i
ed in permanent improvements, such as j
good roads, i3 not like, money thrown
away upon payrolls Of useless employ
ees." ... - '
' "Have you given the matter of road- j
building any considqration!'" '. I
"Only in a general waj I have kept !
track of the question as it has been
treated in tho newspapers and magazines
and have been much interested by it., It
appears that a good roadbed and road-
way about fourteen feet wide that i3 to
eay. double track can bo built for about ,
fifty cents a linear foot. This would bo
about Q3.500 a mile. Where a general
system of roadmaking would be gone
into, however, I am mchned to believe
that this' expenso might be greatly re
duced. But, even at fifty cents a foot,
two roads spanning an ordinary county
at right angles could be constructed for
le63 than $:j00,C00. . The interest on such
an investment would bo about $10,000 a
year. A properly constructed road
would not require much expenditure for
repairs for a longtime." Chicago News

Views Kxpressed by Profess Henry,
the Wisconsin Experiment Station, .
In a letter written to Hoard's Dairy
man concerning grasses in Wisconsin
Professor Henry makes several state
ments that are of general interest. In
rejrara to me ciovers ne says:
i no mammoth furmshes a seed which
.brings a ood price and is probably val
uable for turning under. Generally,
however, medium red clover should be
sown, since it 'gives better satisfaction
for haymaking. The aisike clover de
serves more friends than it has. It is
especially valuable for sowing on lands
slightly damp. Of course-it will not do
on wet lands. It holds much better when
pastured by stock than does rod clover,
the plants often lasting several j'ears in
pastures. The 6tems or tno aisike are
finer and better relished by stock, espe
cially sheep, than are tho coarser stems
of the red clover. AlsiHe seed brings a
very good price. We have tried a num
ber of other clovers, but none that will
comparj with alsie and the medium
. red. .
Amon,!r the grasses Kentucky bine
"grass sometimes called Jrmo grass
: holds supreme sway in Wisconsin. . In
many places it runs out timothy and
clover. It 6tarts very early in the spring
. and furnishes abundance of feed until
about, the 1st of July, wdien it enters !i
period of rest and is of little worth un
til about the 1st of September, when, if
.favorable conditions prevail, it starts up
again, furnishing fine pasture all the fall.
Redtop holds fairly well, and is especial
ly valuable for lands somewhat damp.
. Fowl meadow grass may also be tried
in a limited way where redtop succeeds.
Orchard grass should be sown in tha
pastures for the purpose of furnishing a
variety, but should never bo sown alone,
since it has a strong tendency to grow in
clumps or tussucks and does not mako a
. satisfactory sod.
... For meadows the standard mixture is
timothy and'clover. Orchard gras3 can
be 60wn ulonj; with clover with or with
, out the timothy. It is about ten days
earlier than tho timothy and fully as
early as clover. Meadows produced
h . tll!m whV, timathv -iR

grass makes a woedy hay.
j, Of tho newer candidates for favor in
, the meadow the only one we have had
any success with u the tall meadow oat
.grass, which we find holds pretty well,
i .'. , ., 1,. '...,. i., r ,
This gras3 has a heavy leaJ'age near the
. ground and sends up long stems afxord
; ing really but little, nutriment. in them
selves in proportion to their appearance.
The oat grass hay is somewhat bitter to
& - fc -s j M by -
ft rf eV(JU emi orhard
grass. From the stiff nature of its
straws it prevents clover from falling
over, enabling it to dry. out quicker aft
er being cut .'with the mower. ,'. ;,
To those who wish" to experiment with
grasses for meadows I would recom
mend the use of some aisike, orchard
grass and tall oat grass along with
common red clover and timothy.
Many f armer3 seem not to understand
the vegetation of the clover plant, labor
ing under the impression that it is nec
essary to sow some grain crop with the
clover, to protect it. Clover doss best
when sown by 'itself or with other
''grasses and without any nurse crop. To
sow cat? or barley with it in the spring
is to place it in competition with a
strong plant that takes away the mois
ture. ...'.. a " '.:,..,,..-.
If there ,is not moisture enough for.
both tho grain crop and the clover, the
clover must die out. ' We have never
failed, no matter how dry the season, in
getting a good stand of clover whei'Q(
clover was sown by itself, while we have
frequently failed in getting a goodcatcb
where clover was sown with spring
grain or in the spring with winter grain.
Of course the farmer does not feel like
sowing clover with or without grass seed
alone and losing a grain crop the firs
year. I have' mentioned our experience
in the matter in order to help bring
about a proper understanding of the sit
uation. W hero it is important to get a
good stand of clover sow it. by itself.
In that case a good crop of hay can be
cut from the seeding the first year if
the season is favorable at least heavy
pasturage will be afforded in the fall.
If sown with grain, one must take his
chances for the clover. ,
