JTIZE BLIND LEADING
David Bennett Hill, enator from
iKew York, and the Benedict Arnold of
iliia party, has gone furiously .mouthing
.at the administration and the proposed
income Ux. What Dav,id Beunet Hill
think of Grover Cleveland to of no in
terest to any one, especially 01evelund;
ibut his position on the income ax
-proposition is of decided Interest In -that
'.jf. shows the stand of hie -eouatitwents
n the proposition to make euftital
aeara portiou of the cost of .conducting,
-the government. The worst feature of
ithe system of raising revenue by ous-,
toms duties by tariff Is that the tax is
Inihe nature of a per capita tax. The'
-t.nrifFt.nY la n tnx on flonsmnintion. and
.as the poor man consumes practically
. as much as the rich, he pays the same
.amount of tax and produces as much
-t'oln for the support-of the government
as his wealthv neighbor. The ueiieral
government levies no tax of any .kind
on property, "but floer entire revenues
are raised by a tax on things consumed .
'This tax now amounts to two millions
.of dollars per day, or a tax upon the
laborers of the .country those who are
dependent on their personal exertions
for support of themselves and their
families of about .6 per cent of their
' daily earnings. Against this burden
some load of taxation levied .upon the
poor it to proposed to lay oive-fuurth as
jnuch, or 2 per cent, upon the earnings
of the money of the rich. This is what
David Bennett Hill, and David Ben
nett Hill's monied constituents, .object
to. The privileged elasses .have so long
thrown the burden of taxation .upon
1 he labor of the country that tliey can
not bring themselves to even a state of
. being one-fourth honest by isubniitting
to taxation at the rate of .one-fourth of
-what their poorer brethren pay.. Uudei
the present system he pays .8 per cent
.of his capital, his labor,, and capital
ihowls against paying ouie-ighth of 1
percent. When the Morrill tariff was
' adopted its originator said it was a war
.measure. At the same time heavy in
ternal taxes were laid as a war measure;
:and an income tax was submitted to
.grumblingly by the wealthy, as a war
measure. The smoke had not cleared
.away from Gettysburg before the re-.
. peal of the income tax was demanded,
;aud the sun-burned legions of the two
armies had not reached home until the
measure of repeal was well under way.
.Almost the first act to pass congress
was the act to repeal the income tax,
to relieve the oppressed capitalist from
;his of ershadowing burden , of unusual
;and unconstitutional taxation. That
war measure stilj exists. It exists in n
billion of dollars war debt ! It exists in
an annual payment of $150,000,000 pen
sions. The capitalist submitted to a
tax on his income to bolster up the na
tion's credit, but he. successfully .re
ibelled against having that income
taxed to pay that same war debt. In
time of war the capitalist fattened on
the necessities of the soldier., in time of
peace he fattens on the servility of the
. .citizen.' In war he remained at home
.and dodged danger! In peace he is at
the front, fighting to avoid hie share of
the debt. The free horse ma be ridden
until be drops under, the saddle, dead
in his efforts to respond to whip and
pur. The rider may be .compelled to
.complete his journey on foot! Two per
cent yielded cheerfully is better than
100 per cent taken by forcej .Coxey'e
;army are playing the overture Let
Wall street beware when the curtain
jises. France had her '.92 and history
repeats itself. 1
HOOD RIVER APPLES,
Monday's Oregonian says; "Beauti
ful apples from Hood River u now
selling in this market at $2.25 per box.
"They look as bright and fresh as they
.did the day they were gathered, and
$how what can be done with Oregon
apples." These are probably eome of
the lot taken .down by W. J. Baker
last week. Those who are afraid the
' Apple' industry will be overdone con
find profitable subject for thought in
' the prices above quoted, and ean thence
set out apple trees without number.,
chooaing simply the whiter varieties.

THE SAME MAN.
Eighteen years ago we were engaged
in managing a ranch and one of those
innumerable toll roads that Mark
Twain describes i;s hanging over the
edges of the state of .Nevada. The road
w.us huilt across the Carson river bot
toms, eight miles from Carson City.
In the arly spring a big bull adopted
the ranch and made life burdensome
to everybody about it.. He would walk
through a fence, barb wire or other
wise, without seeming to be aware that
he had met it. In the Pine Nut bills,
twelve miles to the southeast, a man
by the name of Jeromes-call him Jones
was running a cattle ranch, without
a license. Jones came by the ranch
one day, just as the bull walked
through the. fence. On the spur of the
moment we gave our "interest iu the
bull to Jones, who drove him off to
Pine Nut. About a week afterwards
we went up to Jones' place, and he
asked us if we thought we would know
"that .bull." We thought we would,
and he rode over to the ranch with us
and pointed him out. A change had
-eome over the spirit of his dreams. His
horns had been sawed off, and to bal
ance him up his tail had been grubbed
out. Down his brisket seven gaudy
dewlaps vied with one another in add
ing to his beautv; while three toggles
on his nose and two on each cheek gave
his countenance the appearance of an
Easter bonnet. Besides all this, he
had a dozen different brands scattered
over his system, his ears were cropped,
and he was oxenized. As a work of
art he was a prize wluner. Soon after
this, Joues found it profitable, on ac
count of isome of. his cattle "trades,"
to leuve the country, and his where
abouts was unknown until a few weeks
ago. . He is now a clerk on the finance
committee of the United States senate
and has had charge of the Wilson bill.
It is not true that John Minto came
around the Horn in the Mayflower in
1492. He crossed the isthmus with Pi
zarro several years later, and was elect
ed alcalde of Santa Fe in 1532. He
fled from there only a few hours ahead
of a pursuing office, which caught him
tw.o years ago, and sentenced him to
a term iu the Oregon legislature. The
punishment fit the crime.
The famous, or infamous, Breckinridge-Pollard
suit has come to an end,
and Miss Pollard gets $15,000 damages,
provided she can .collect it. Miss Pol
lard will probably hide herself as best
she can and Breckinridge can crawl
under his Wing. .
The weather for the past week has
beeu remarkably cold. We mention
this fact not to complain of the weather,
but to point a moral and explain the
truthfulness of the motto of this paper,
"Jt's a cold day when we get left." .

Dear Sirs: I have used your Acme

it to be the moBt effective and cheapest
remedy for desroying all kinds of pests
to which plants and trees are subject.
Can reccommend it as a first-class ar

In the year 3893 I used over a ton of

put on the market, as it can be used at
any time of the year without injury to

A Street Car Idyl.
They were riding up town together
pretty, pink eheeked Ethel and her
Ted cheeked brother Ralph. . In-the
young woman's lap lay a daintily
bound volume with a bit of winter
landscape etched upon the cover and
th words "Winter Idyls" written
"Say, Ethel," inquired Ralph,
' 'what does i-d-y-1 spell i"
"Idyl," replied Ethel absentmind
edly, looking out of the car window.
"Are winter idles tramps, Ethel r

"What's that picture with the cur
tain over it?" asked Mrs. Hicks in the
art gallery. ' "
"I don't know. It must be one of
those shade overs they talk so much
bout," said Hicks, Harper's Bazar.
We -declare our steadfast adhesion to
the fundamental maxim of the democ
racy, viz; "Government by the people
and for the people, honestly and econ
omically administered, for the greatest
good of the greatest number." We
charge upon the republican party and
its reckless legislation all the evils from
which the people are now suffering,
and assert that the low prices of farm
produc's, non-employment of labor,
general depression of business and stag
nation of industry, are the results of
the unjust and burdensome taxes, high
protective tariff system, and other class
legislation of .the republican party, of
which the demonitization of silver in
1873 and the contraction of our cur
rency are instances.
We believe that all taxation should
be equal and just, and that unneces
sary taxation is unjust taxation, and
that the wealth of a nation should bear
its just proportion of the burdens of the
national government, and that we are
in favor of an income tax.
We favor the calling of a constitu
tional convention, to submit to voters
of the state' a constitution embodying
among other things what is known as
the initiative and referendum.
We again declare our faith in and ad
vocacy of the imperishable principles
of the democratic party as reaffirmed
by the Chicago platform. '
We have an abiding faith and im
plicit confidence in the integrity, good
faith and patriotism of President Cleve
land, and believe that he'will accom
plish, so far as in his power, before the
close of his term of office, all the pledges
of the democratic party contained in
the national platform, adopted at Chi
cago in 1892. , ,
We indorse the repeal by congress of
the odious federal-election law, and in
dorse its efforts in behalf of tariff re
form and to bring about a more pros
perous condition of aflairs. '
We favor the speedy construction of
the Nicaragua canal by the govern
ment and under government supervi
sion and control.
We reaffirm the position that has
ever been maintained by the demo
cratic party, tifat gold and silver are
equally the people's money. We are
opposed to all measures of discrimina
tion against silver, and demand free
coinage to supply the demands of busi
ness, and that all money issued by the
government be made a legal tender for
all debts, both public and private.
We believe that the pension roll
should be one of honor, and we favor
liberal pensions to soldiers disabled in
the service of our country.
We are in favor of the election of
United States senators by the direct
vote of the people.
We denounce the act of the last leg
islature whereby was repealed what is
known as the mortgage tax law, and
we demand its re-enactment at the next
We demaud that all property shall
be assessed at its true cash value, and
that there shall be deductions only for
indebtedness which has a correspond
ing taxable credit.
We demand the enactment and en
forcement of more stringent laws for
the protection of the salmon and stur
geon fishing industry, and the aboli
tion of all fish traps, seines and wheels,
and favor more extensive , artificial
We are iu favor of liberal appropria
tions for the improvement of our rivers
and harbors, and the adoption of such
measures as will tend most speedily to
the opening of the Columbia river.
We are opposed to Chinese and all
" We favor a change in the law regu
lating the adoption of school text books
which will invite healthy competition
and prevent too frequent changes in
We are in favor of laws for the pro
tection of depositors in banks. '
We are in favor of the abolishment of
railroad and all other unnecessary com
missions. We favor fixed salaries for all public
officers and the abolishment of the fee
system, and are opposed to an officer
receiving more than his constitutional
salary.. ,. , .,, w-l'.;
We condemn as infamous the attempt
of the last legislature to tamper with
the purity of our elections by so amend
ing the Australian ballot law as to take
from it all iia beneficent provisions,
and we earnestly oppose any change or
modification of said law.
We declare ourselves in sympathy
with the just decision of Judge Cald
well, regarding the rights of labor in
the recent controversy between the
Union Pacific railroad company and its
We arraign the last legislature for its
waste Of the people's money by extrav
agant and reckless appropriations, and'
hold the republican party responsible
for the shameful and vicious legislation
of that body, and we call upon the
honest voters of the state to relieve the
common wealth of this incubus upon its
industry aud prosperity by Ittking the
reins of power from the hands of such
incompetent and unworthy servants.
Te people cannot hope for immunity
from corrupt appropriations of public
money so long as the party in power is
controlled by the combination of spoils
men which has and will control the re
publican party of this state. .

Carefully watch your colt for the first ten
days, and see that Its bowels act properly, as
the lirst ten days are the most critical In a
foal's existence. If you can get them over the
first ten days they usually require very little
attention If the mare Is fed Judiciously.
The mare should be fed some two or three
weeks before she is due to foal and some time
ofter soft food, such as boiled oats, bran and
linseed that has been boiled for twelve hours
or longer, so as to loosen the system and pro
vide a generous flow of milk. If from some
cause.the mare should not nhavo sufficient
milk the best substitute is cow's milk,, one'
lourth water and a tablespoonful of honey to a
pint of milk.
Costiveness, diarrhoea, and inflamation are
the principal ailments a young foal is sub?ect
to. The two first careful treatment will
overcome; the last is, in most fatal.
' The following are well tried and the best
remedies that have come undei- my notice:
