The Dingley bill passed the senate Is
now ju conference committee and may
be expected soon to become a law. Its
framers txpect it to yield revenue the
first year to the amount of $) 75,000,000,
und then-after $200,000,000 a year. It
is claimed by its friends to be drawn in
I lie In t tvHtts of labor and tbat it will
bring piisperityf but right in the face
of itci n.se is being inaugurated the
grcatevt mv.ke against a reduction of
wages that itu taken place since the
McKlnley tariff law was in operation,
wheit wages beuan to drop and the
price for every commodity except farm
products were high. If prosperity re
turns to the country under the new
tariff' law the republican party will en
joy a long lease of power. If the hard
limes continue, with prices raised on
everything by reason of the tariff, the
party cannot hope to hold the reins of
government after 1000. With a tariff
taw to defend that docs not bring the
promised prosperous times, republicans
will not huve the aid of gold-standard
democrats, without whose support, in
1890, they would have suffered defeat.
Had congress amended the Wilson
law, which was protective enough, by
adding purely revenue features made
necessary by the failure of the income
tax clatise,and then turned its attention
to the money question "and brought it to
some kind of settlement, the republican
party could have had the support of
the gold-standard democrats and their
position would have been impregnable.
National democrats will not be found
giving aid and comfort to the party of
protection when the tariff is the issue,
ns It is today and as it promises to be
iu the next national campaign. And
voters of all parties will not be so easily
frightened away from the cause of free
silver if times do not improve under
the gold standard and a war tariff.
. Mr. Bryan's speech last Monday at
Oregon City, to many impartial ob
servers who were predisposed to ad
mire him, conveyed more disappoint
ment than gratification. It wassimply
the rethresbing of old straw.' Nothing
brilliant nor no new points were
brought out, it being but the re
JieniKl o' his stereotyped fallacious
theories, familiar to every one who
read the papers during the last No
vember tttrjpaign. The speech, though
delivered under the auspices of the
Willamette Valley Chautauqua Asso
ciation and entitled "Bimetallsin,"
was only a, political harangue, in
which Mr. Bryan showed himself to
lw merely a calamity preacher and de
void of the dignity expected from a
man iu his position. He made no pre
tence of answering the proposition that
bimetnlism, with the free and unlim
ited coinage of silver at the arbitrary
ratio of 10 to 1, would produce niono
metuliwii. ' He preseutcd no plausible
definition of what bimetalism really
means, simply giving a lot of sophis
tical, high-sounding phrases that to
the inconsiderate appeared to be the
long-sought panacea, a :'
year, for work is. not continuous. To
guard against over-production, the
managers of the coal trust order a mine
shut down when, in their wisdom, it
becomes necessary. The average earn
ings of the miners, therefore, lulls con
siderably below 90 cents a day. Under
our tariff laws coal is protected from 40
to 60 cents a ton. This protection it
asked for on behalf of labor. Wh
should there bany necessity to strike
Bryan at Gladstone Park.
William Jennings 'Bryan, late de
feated silver candidate for the pres
idency, addressed an audience of 10,00
people at Gladstone Park, Oregon City
July 12th. The address was given un
der the auspices of the Willamette Val
ley Chautauqua Association, and th
subject his favorite theme, "Bimetal
ism." Colouel Robert A. Miller, pre
ideiit of the association, had the meet
lug in charge and introduced the
speaker to the assemblage. Mr. Bryan
reached the platform shortly after 1
o'clock and was given an euthusinstic
greeting by his audience and loudh
applauded at times throughout hi
speech and at its close. When Mr.
Bryan began talking his voice was no
liceably weak .and husky, but a few
minutes warmed him up and he could
be heard easily and distinctly to tin
remotest parts of the assembly. HU
address lasted a little over two hours
and was attentively listened to unil
the end, when he hurriedly left foi
Portland, where he spoke to a crwwd oi
15,000 people at Multnomah Field ai
7:30 b'clocK. He. left Portland at 9
o'clock on the O. R. & N. for Pendle
ton. Men who agree with Brvan on
the silver question, with one accord
pronounce bis speech at Gladstone
Park to have been the most con vinciuu
and unanswerable argument yet presented.-

j FACTS ABOUT PUTTY.
(Jow the Article Is Jluilo and It f.inny
; . Tints Bail I7ses '
' Pre putty is .aiade of whiting and
linseed oil. Whiting is made of chalk
which is imported from England und
ground in this country. Barytcs, mixed
with the whiting, is used as an adulter
ant of putty, and cotton-seed oil in
mixed with the linseed oil. ., .Cotton
seed oil is cheaper, and a slower dryer
than linseed; its use is advantageous
to small customers, for putty . mixed
with part cotton-seed oil keeps in order
longer. ' '
Linseed oil putty is used more by
decorators and painters and other large
, consumers who use up putty quickly.
Putty sells at wholesale from ono and a
half cent to two cents a pound. It is
put up for the trade in barrels of eight
jiundied pounds, kegs of three hun
dred pounds, tubs of one hundred
to ono hundred and ten pounds, in cans
. of one to one hundred pounds, and in
bladders; it keeps best in bladders, and
the bulk of the patty exported goes in
- that form. Putty made in the eastern
cities of the United States is sold on the
Atlantic seaboard and in tho south, but
not much eastern putty is sold in the
west, for there are putty manufactories
in the northern and western cities.
We export putty to Canada, Mexico,
the West Indies, South America and
the Sandwich Islands, says the New
York Sun. Manufacturers make col
ored putties to order, and white, brown
and black putties are kept in stock.
Putty has a variety of uses besides
those already mentioned, and the very
familiar one is setting glass. Brown
putty is used to point brown-stone
buildings and putty is sometimes
used in pointing up brick buildings.
Black putty is used in stove
foundries. . Plumbers nse putty.
Sometimes scene painters reduce it
and put it on canvas to paint over.
: There are three or four putty manu
factories in New Yor'it and Brooklyn.
A single firm of manufacturers in this
city has sold more than seventeen thou
sand tons in a yedr. These seem like
large figures, but they are less surpris
ing from the fact that there few articles
of more common use.

AN INDIAN DEMON.
The great strike of coal miners in the
Kurt is causing a great scarcity of coal
in some parts, and railroad companies
are boldly confiscating coal in train
loads when it can't be obtained by
other means for fuel for their own use.
At Cleveland, July 9th, a lake schooner
was loading a cargo of coal for Detroit.
An Erie Co.'s engine backed on a high
trestle leading to the car dumping ma
chine and hauled away thirty cars of
con), leaving the schooner without a
cargo. ; Railroad ' corporations have
rights above all others if i there-Is any
Jaw to justify them, under any circum
stances, in confiscating the property of
an independent shipper. '
The Oregon Union, while giving due
praise to the new president of the agri
cultural college, truthfully says: "Of
the many who have presided over the
agricultural college it may safely be
raid tbat none have done so with great
er benefit to the college and more credit
to the nisei vex than the retiring pres
ident, H B, Miller. An active, ener
getic, liberal minded man of rare busi
ness and executiveability, he has given
the Bchool a nush' forward which ran-
not but bo of great benefit to it in the
future." ' -' '
The editor of the Observer put in
three days traveling over . Sherman
county with Hon. Emile Schanuo,'

. , The Baby's fate.
"Tell me what my baby's lot in life
will be," pleaded the fond young moth
er, crossing the gipsy's palm with sil
ver. "He is so different from other
bubies. Although he talks almost in
cessantly, and his language. sounds ex
actly as if it ought to be intelligible; 1 '
am utterly unable to understand one
word he says. , Then his head is extra
ordinarily large for a child of bis age,
and he often suffers from severe pains '
in it. He is bold and self-possessed in
the extreme, and is abashed at nothing
that frequently affects children, but.on
the other band, he often waken iu the
dead of nigtit shrieking with the fear oi
terrors of bis own dreaming. And du
ring his wakiiiK hours he is never sat
istied with what is given him, but cries :
for the sun or the moon and other im
possible things." "My poor dear," re
plied the gypsy, handing buck the sil
ver, while the tears ran down her with
ered cheeks like rain; "it Is entlrelv ,
unprecedented, but I can not keep 1
your money while I prognosticate ill
fortune for you. Try to liear the blow .
bravely. Your baby will grow up to ;
be a populist! There is no help for It."

VIM) Formidable Lynx ' Patrolling the
Moose and deer stories are insignif
icant compared with the recent advon-r
tares of an experienced hunter on the
trip of Chairback mountain. lie was
tul alone and came upon a place where
a large doer had been eaten and not
very long beforo, for tho blood was en
tirely fresh. There were large tracks
i-round tho place,' and it was not many
minutes beforo the hunter found bigger
game than ho cared to tackle, for ong
of the most formidable Indian demons
that ever patrolled tho Maine woods
was beforo him, says the Bangor Com
mercial. The hunter is not given to woolly
yarns, but ha says he actually believes
that the animal could etretch himself
fiftoen feet. Ho would jump and clasp
a limb fifteen to eighteen feet from the
ground, and go into a big tree with the
ose and grace of anv cat. Entirely
alono and a long distance from any
help the hunter dared not five at him,
knowing from long experience in the
woods that if he hit but aid not kill tho
demon he (tho hunter) would be in luck
if he lived to get homo.
The strange and powerful animal fol
lowed him for quite a distance, first
being three rods ahead in the old log
ging road and then suddenly appearing
in tho rear. But the hunter piodded
steadily along, keening his. weather
eye on the ugly beast while not appear
ing to notice him or quicken his pace.
In about a half hour the big lynx dis
appeared and the hunter breathed a
few sighs of relief and didn't waste any
time in looking up his traveling com
panion after that.

A schoolmaster at Amiens, France,

able that, unable longer to endure her

he fled to a dense forest not far from
