R ailroad men who voted for Mc­
Kinley and sound money last year,
without reference to their former
party affiliations, will not regret
their action when they examine the
figures showing the earnings of the
companies in whose success they are
interested. The July, August and
September earnings of eight of the
largest railway systems of the coun
try show increased earnings of from
one to two million dollars each for
the months in question.
E very little yelping democratic or
populist newspaper in the country
is raising a terrific howl because the
Dingley tariff' bill is not producing
as much revenue as is required to
meet the expenses of the govern­
ment. Let them howl.
No intelli­
gent person will be deceived. The
act has only been in force a little
over four months and has had neither
time nor opportunity to justify itself
as a revenue producer. Of one thing
rest assured; if it should prove inad
e juate in that respect, there is a re­
publican congress and president who
will see that it does the work. And
let it not be forgotten that its failure
to yield a surplus at the present time,
is the result of the partisan and un­
patriotic course of the opposition
members of congress, in delaying its
passage while the country was be­
ing flooded with foreign goods under
the Wilson act. By this means not
less than’f50,000,000*of revenue was
lost to the government—all for the
purpose of embarrassing the new ad
ministration. Nobody expected that
the Dingley law would at once raise
enough revenue to meet current ex­
penses, hut Mr. Dingley in u speech
delivered before the Home Market
club of Boston on November 10th, re­
ferred to the fact that the revenues
had increased sufficiently each month
since it went into effect to justify the
conclusion that by the end of the fis­
cal year it would meet the require
ment for current expenses, pensions
and interest and in the next year
create u surplus. It is safe to proph
esy that by the end of another year
these same newspapers will be howl­
ing about the large und dangerous
surplus in the treasury.
There are ruuiors afloat of a middle-of-
the-road populist newspaper likely to ap­
pear in thia city soon. The trouble witii
the populists is that they have too many
pap-sucking office seekers alioard, who
want tiie ofiivea at auy price, to make
that policy win. Starting seven or eight
newspapers wouldn’t restore virtue
where there never was any.

E d . R eporter :—The Oregonian of the
7th |inst. contained an account of the
Sheridan city election, which was held
here on the Gth inst. The Oregonian's
correspondent would leave the impres­
sion that party lines were drawn, and
the so-called people’s party hail scored a
signal victory. This however is not the
case. There were but two tickets in the
field, viz: the citizens’ ticket, which rep­
resented the old board or ring ticket and
the citizens’ ticket, representing the anti­
ring party, made up of republicans, pop­
ulists and democrats, which won at the
ratio of 2 to 1. There was no attempt to
draw party lines, but the people were
united for a change of administration,
hence no other result could possibly fol­
low. The victory will he shared equally
hr the republicans, populists and demo­
crats- all united for better city govern­
ment. When the count was concluded
anti the result was announced, some of
our most enthusiastic citizens repaired to
the hills just hack of town and celebrated
the victory by tiring dynamite cartridges,
which shook the whole country round.
Our sleepy little town has not had such a
shaking up for many a flay.

To the E ditor :—A compliment with
a design to only convey an honest im­
pression of a young man in the ministry
of this city from a non-chureli member’s
Rev. Powell of this city preached a
practical sermon last Sunday evening
from a text on “Jealousy” that held his
large audience spell bound. His practi­
cal, everyday illustrations, his honest
purpose, Jiis Christian integrity is surely
winning for him not only the respect of
the Christian people of tliis yity but of
those who do not make a profession of
Christianity. The wriler heard a remark
from a non-chureli member that he is
the coming Talmage of this coast. His
text for next ,Sunday evening will be
“Protit and Loss" from the scriptural
wording of what will it prolit a man to
gain the whole world and lose his own
soul'' I would recommend to non-going
church people to turn out and hear the
young man, hi»'lessons ure truly grand
and elevating. N ota C iii hi h MK'I der .

Life is a battle field.
Every day brings its
fierce, unceasing con
flict; every night leaves
its multitudes of dead
and dying.
The horrors of war are no
greater than the horrors of disease
If all
the uations of the earth were at war against
each other there would be no such carnage
wrought within the year as that which is
accomplished annually by one dread disease
And yet this most fatal of all diseases is
not without its remedy. It is no longer the
irresistible destroyer that it was considered
thirty years ago. An entirely new aspect is
put upon the possibilities of this dreadful
malady by the astounding remedial action
of Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery,
which cures consumption by nourishing thé
lungs with an abundant supply of pure,
highly vitalized blood
This stops the formation of tuberculous
matter, and builds up fresh tissue, muscular
flesh and vital energy
It gives digestive
power to the stomach which is too weak to
assimilate oily emulsions.
Miss Lucy Kloeffler of Armada, Mich., writes
9'heu I was about eight years of age I had iu-
ttaiuu.auuU of the lungs aiid from that time upl
»as sick nearly all the time and had a doctoi
marly all the tune 1 would take cold so easily it
would go tight to my lungs At the age of nine­
teen I was very bad: there was paju in my lungs,
tickling in my throat and my throat was studded

Sressiot) of voice, and difficulty of breathing
octored with one of our best physicians and he
said he could not help me and Just prescribed qofi
liver oil aud told my mother I could not live longer
than three months I kept getting weaker every
day, when at last a friend asked me why I did not
try Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery. I
thought there was no use. no more help for me a.
