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.- ! ' Home. "What is home without a mother?" Aye, aud what is mother without a home? There are more mothers with out homes than homes without moth ers. The object or every loyal ciiizeo should be to provide tbe opportunity for every family to reside under its own vine and tig tree, to create laws that wolild enable all who desire to secure and retain a home airainst all comers. Those who are fortunate enough to own homes should bend every energy to keep l hem free from all encumbrance. A mortgage, under the present condi tion of lulling prices, is certain death to homeowuersutp. .Live hard but refuse to encumber yourself and family with tins substance eater. Make Home us beautiful and attractive as possible with the means at your command. leach your children to think it the sweetest spot on earth. Instill in them , an ineradicable desire to some day ' make a home of their own, when time has sent them into the world to Ki'ap- pie with life's trials. The love of home ! is one of the most sacred and beneficial of all loves that Hush and purify the human soul. Bound View. 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. i Air. Hred W. VVlisou was tne orator at Prineville on the 4th, and bis ad 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."

V . , 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.

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, married, but after a week of wedded life his mother-in-law, who made her home with them, became so insupport able that, unable longer to endure her tyranny, he resolved not only to desert the conjugal roof but to break with civilization and return to savagery. So he fled to a dense forest not far from Amiens, and there lived for three weeks on roots and apples, says tho New York World. . lie said afterwards that whenever the picture of his home and wife rose in his troubled brain there stepped be tween the scepter of his implacable mother-in-law, guarding like the angel . with tho flaming sword the gate of par-' adise, and the thought would send him flying into the depths of the forest again to escape fancied pursuit and re capture. At last hunger drove the vegetarian to desire another roof than the trees afford ed, and more tempting food than herbs and apples, so he decided to seek refuge with his own mother, and at her home found awaiting him papers in a suit for divorce brought by his wife on the ground of desertion. Now the courts have freed the unhappy schoolmaster, who deemed conjugal happiness too dearly purchased at the price of such u inother-dn-law. .
