Jim, an aged Indian, of the White

near Jewett's place at White Salmon
Sunday last. The body was found at
the foot of a bluff at least a hundred feet
' high, and It was first supposed he had
fallen over accidentally.' On examining
into the matter it was found that he
bad struck in the top of an oak tree as
v he fell breaking some of the ' limbs.
What makes the matter, look suspi

. it was found, and besides footprints
led from the road up to where the body
' lay, and then around to the .top of the

The Tariff Bill. ;
Washington, Aug. 8. When ; the
democratic couferrees adjourned today
it was understood on all sides that they
would report to the full conference to
morrow. . Members of the conference
supported the general, faith by their
statements; which were more or ' less
sanguine or guarded, and depending on
the temperature of the speaker..! While
the utterance at the time of adjourn
ment were not so strong as those which
were heard early in the afternoon,' yet
they were sufficiently assuring to just
ify the statement that, baring the im
probable contingencies, the democratic
members of the conference will find
themselves prepared some time during
tomorrow, or at the latest Friday,,' to
call in the republican membes of the
conference. for a full meeting. Both
the. democrats and republicans accept
ed this as the approach of the end, and
equal to a definite announcement of
agreement. . The terms as given .out
were: '-' ' " .'- . "'. . - ,

aiove No. 16, Dutch standard (refined

ore, with slight changes in the metal
woolen and cotton schedules.. , , , ;' .
Bepresentative Cutching?,of the rules
committee, is hopeful that an adjourn
ment of congress will occur next week.
The Republican steering committee of
the senate had a meeting after the
adjournment of the senate today, to
consider the situation. . The under
standing among them ; was that- the
democrats were close enough together
to allow the tariff bill to be reported
ba,ck to the' senate tomorrow.' There
were present republicans who bad in
formation as to the status of tte bill,
and they stated that' upon the manu
facturingschedule the senate rates in the
main obtained, but upon the three
principal itemi sugar, coal and iron
ore a compromise had been reached.
It was from this standpoint that the
republicans discussed the bill and the
possibility of defeating it. It was first
ascertained that every republican and
the , populists, Peffer. and Stewart,
would vote ugaints the bill, and that
Mr. Hill would also oppose it. Three
more votes were necessary to defeat it
The auouncement was made with di:
rectness that both Caffery and Blanch-
ard of Louisiana would vote ngaints it,
tnougn tney- were not considered cer
tain. One of these senators had-asked
Senator Allen as to th6 position of him
self and Kvle, who voted for .the bill
when it passed the senate, and while
he has not received a positive answer.
the inference was that the populists
seemed to think it was a part of their
policy to vote againts the bill. With
the republican side solid,' and ' Hill,
Caffery, Blanchard and Allen voting
with ' them, the bill could . not pass.
The Republicans had to acknowledge,
however, that the prospects of getting
all three of the last named were ex
tremely doubtful. The ' impression
prevailed that the decisive, vote -would
be taken, tomorrow, and the absent
senators were telegraphed to return to
Washington. ' -. . ; c .- . ,:

In America the hope of orderly., gov-
j eminent does not rest in bayonets, but
in the sense of order inherent and
instinctive in the people. It is always
safe to trust the people with freedom,
because when so' trusted - the human
animal is govened to' an always increas
ing degree by his natural sense of order.
It is no more possible to make any
community of human animals disor
derly and to keep them so than it is to
stop the revolution of the earth, i In
numan society, as in a oeenive or ant
hill, order is the highest law, governing
by and through and over all other laws.
Freedom and order are independent
the one increasing with - the other.
There 'is nothing more certain than
that both will continue to increase in
America. Those who would check
them wjll be crushed by them. ,
The sense of order in 'the people is
the sure guran tee of the safety of society
and of free, institutions. Only those
whose conscienes makes them cowards
have any reason to fear the American
people or any disposition to deny their
capacity ' for self-government. N.- -Y.

X Chinaman's Yiews. on the Corean

' ' ' : St. Louis Kcpublic. ! 'i
New .York, Aug, 4. Wong Chin
Foo, the Chinese scholar philosopher
and literateur of this city', has an opin
ion on'the Corean war, and as Wang
has made a study of all the leading na
tions of the world and of his own, his
ideas are interesting. ' Speaking of the
threatened war between China and Ja
pan, he said: ' " '"
'-'In the coming war between China
and JapanJ for I take it that .' things
have gone too far to be, settled 'save by
the arbitration of arms, it will be- the
stalwart Chinaman from thd conquer
ing nprth who will ' fight the battles
and win the victory.'- " .-' ' ;'; .
. "There can be no question of the out
come of a war between' China and Ja
pan, and that outcome will be the utter
defeat and humiliation of the islanders.
I say this id spite of the learned pre
dictions of American v newspaper writ
ers, who say that Japan lias profited by
Western teachings and is competent. to
handle effectively , the modern engines
of war of, Western nations, while; con
servative China has failed to thorough

vantages.' . ' ,: ; y z '.

. - Jaiau la lieady. ..
The main , cause for the- present
trouble is the internal dissensions iu
Corea, which have taken of late a most
violent form through the outbreak of
the widespread insurrection led by a
party called "Togakuto,"- and the ina
bility of-the Corean Government to
.subjugate it.- As a consequence of this,
the present Government of Corea ap
plied to China for help- to- pacify the
insurrection, and China readily con
senting, sent troops to Corea, without
any conference with the Japanese au
thorities. . Now in 1885, when - there
was an attempted revolution in Corea,
the Japanese and Chinese troops in
Seoul, which were stationed there to
protect the people of these two countries
took sides and fought, each other, and
as a consequence tho trouble wasmueh
augmented. So when the treaty; "was
Concluded between China and Japan
after the troubles were ended, it was
agreed on both sides that "neither coun
try send troops in' the future into Co
rea without first notifying the other,
This is called the Tien-Tsin treaty.
But in the present case the Chinese
Government sent its troops first;- and
then notified the ' Japanese Govern
ment. In view of this action" of the
Chin;se Government and of the con
dition of affairs in Corea, Japan sent
het troops into Corea in the. first place
to protect the Japanese subjects , aud
their interests there, which amount-to
six times as much as tha Chinese there.
I believe this is the legal aspect of the
case.-'';. . ; ' ;'. ';-;; ". ;''.'
V. I am n'ot a military man, and "can, of
course, say nothing as to the best pol
icy of ponducting the war with fbiua.
But I can say, accordiug. to my1 opin
ion, tt.seems to be the, policy of the Ja-"
panese government to carry on the. war,
in Corea and China, '.and probably
make, a straight march to Pekin. If the
cablegrams are .correct,'"" .the ..' Japanese
troops have already the king of Corea
in their custody, and if they succeed in
gaining some decisive victories over the
Chinese array there, they, or some
other army from Japan, will make v a
move into the heart of the Chinese
Empire. As to consequents of the
war, it would be difficult to forcatt
without, seeming too sanguine. But I
venture to' believe , that it we' get
through as well as I hope we shall, Ja
pan's place among the powers of the
world will be easily secured. She is in
reality in much more prosperous con
dition than Italy the exchequer is
certainly better, her people are more
contented, her army; I believe, is much ,
stronger. We have hope and confidence
lu such conditions, and in the great
patriotic '. spirit of' the Japanese na
tion'. Such are my humble views and
sanguine expectations. But Japan and
China represent two different princi
ples in - Corea. - The . former, Asiatic
conservatism';- the latter modern pro
gress.. China wants to keep Corea as
her subject state; Japan to see her as an
independent state. I believe the his
tory of Europe, especially of England,
as also of Sweden, shows plainly that it
is impossiblo for an island nation to
possess, tributary states on the adjoining
continent when there are powerful ri
vals in the neighborhood. Japan knows
it is Impossible to keep Corea as her
possession in', view -of the1 presence in
the neighborhood of Russia and' China.
She ' therefore is quite honest in her
avowal that she wants to see Corea free
and independent ' From wn at I can
gather out of the accounts in the na
tive press, it seems that the country is
all one in the advocacy of a strong-pol
icy in the present case. ''The people of
Japan do not like to see their personal
and business interests jeopardized, and
there is no question that. the. govern
ment is: fully backed by the people in
its present aggressive policy; ;
- As to the relative fighting strength
of these two countries, there is no ques
tion that numbers and resources are on
the side of Chinaj while skill, enthu
siasm and patriotism are on the side of
Japan. ' I believe the drilled battalions
of China are only th6se belonging to
the immediate government of Li Hung
Chang, while the rest, though inex
haustible in numbers, are very poorly
paid, armed' and drilled. ' In justice to
Japan it ought to be said that small
though she looks when compared with
China," she yet has 41,000,000 people,
and her treasury and, credit are in the
very best condition.'. Her people are
prosperous, contented and patriotic. I
have no doubt, if any, need was felt,
that the people will be able and willing
to consent to the increase of the taxes
or to the issuing of government, bonds.
The standing army of Japan numbers
100,000, and it is second to none I be
lieve except to those of the few first
rate powers of the world. : I am sorry to
say we have not as good a navy, but it
will certainly compare favorably with
the Chinese -navy in' its outfit, and I
venture to think that it is far superior
in skill. If patriotism and enthusiasm
count tor something, as here all believe
they do, then I believe there could be no
comparison bei ween the two. A Jap
