ine most important woric lor repute
lican local organizations this year in
Oregon will be that of' securing the
registration of votes. To this end, an
active, earnest central committee should
be chosen in every county, the mem
' bcrs ot wnicn snoum oe inorotigniy
acquainted in their respective precincts,
should be so situated that thev -can and
will devote some time and attention
to polling the precincts, ascertaining
those who have and who have not rcg
istcred property, personally; visiting
the latter and securing a compliance
with the law. For this purpopsc, it
would probably be wise to have , an
early convention this year, so that the
committee may have time to do the
necessary work. .With a full registra
tion and a full vote the republican par
ty' need have no fears. V !
In another olunin we print an ar
ticle from the San Francisco Call, in
regard to the new consular bill in con
gress. Some ol the features of this bill
are good and promising of salutary
reforms in the service of our govern
ment in foreign countries. . But the
most important changes have already
been made. That is. under the present
edministration, the "United States con
suls arc required to work in helpful
unjson wiih the appraising and other
customs officials at the various ports.
They have become what they should
be, international drummers for trade
and agents for the protection ofur
customs service frorrj the fraud of un
dervaluation of foreign goods offered
for entry. There is no particular law
. far all this. It is simply the arrange
ment of a business-like administration
of our federal affairs. The promulga
tions of the chiefs of the various de
partments .have the binding force of
law. It is more elastic, and results In
better service, than under fixed gener
al legal rules. ! Some additional au
thority should, perhaps, be provided
by congress in the premises. But there
is no call for putting, the whole consu
Iar machinery ; under the civil service.
This would breed; a perfunctory and
lay set of public officials a big, list
less, easy-going machine, that would
not be in touch with the commercial
much of this thing already in the federi
at service; Too much of official snob
ocracy and red-tape and time-ktiling
moss-backism, superinduced by the
civil service. It is against the Ameri
can spirit of gct-up-and-get. Against
the Yankee idea of going for things
directly and "getting there Eli" "with
both feet." Nrly the whole of the
civil service system should be abol-
ished. and it should certainly not be
extended. The spoils of politics" is
made a term to conjure with in favor
of a system that promises much worse
and more costly things, and a service
much less efficient.
ENGLAND AND THE CANAL.
; There seems to be a general surprise
that Englandi did not put a price oo its
concession iri abandoning the position
of deal control of the Nicaragua canal
given her by v the Clayton-Bulwer
treaty. Not only is this surprise mani
fested by the ' foreign diplomats at
Washington, but it is shown by most of
the London newspapers. A representa
tive in Washington of one of the great
powers is reported by "a correspondent
of ! the St. Loais Globe-Democrat to
have been incredulous at the intima
tion that England asked no favor in re
turn for the concession. "Did you ever
know Great Britain to give something
for; nothing?" he asked. - h
England, however. Is not, a. loser by
consenting to give up the -dual princi
ple: in the management of the canaL
The London Chronicle and, the Lon
don Standard are mistaken in 1 assum
ing that their c wntry has surrendered
a valuable ! privilege for nothing. The
Telegraph and the Morning (Leader of
London have taken a correct view of
the matter. The former declared that
the canal is bound to be of advantage
to England in opening up j another
waterway for our vast merchant fleets."
The latter paper said England's conces
sion "can not possibly pain any one
except the small but Ajax-jthroated
ring who regard the earth as a mon
strous manger wherein this country is
to i play dog."These are the views of
political sanity. "(They are the views
which will be taken by everybody in
England at ah early day.
Jt should be borne in mind that the
Nicaragua canal could never be built
except on the condition , under which
it is now to be constructed. It was in-
cvitabie tnat tne unitea states wouia
have to 'control any canal that was to
be built across the isthmus at Nicara
gua. The United States has a larger
interest in this waterway than any oth
er country an possibly have. The
United States, has a better chance than
any other great nation of preserving
the peace with the rest of the big coun
tries. Some nation would necessarily
lave to exercise a paramount control
of the waterways This is inevitable in
a section of the world which has as
many political cyclones as the countries
of Central America are subject to.
Manifestly the only country which
could do this to the satisfaction of the
rest-of the world is the United States.
The settlement which has been reached
is the only one which was possible. A
delay in arriving at it would mean, a
delay rn building the canal. The Lon
don News is correct, of course, in say
ing that "the American secretary of
state has won a great diplomatic tri
umph." He has won also a great tri
r.mph for civilization, as the entire
world will be prompt to see and con
It is said that Speaker Carter,' of
Jakson county, in his contest for a

have Klamath and Lake solid, nor U
it likely that he will have any controll

WHERE OUR FARM PRODUCTS
pi ; GO. .; '.
f ' - i . , :
A bulletin compiled in the agricult
ural department at Washington re
garding the exports of agricultural pro
ducts from the United States during
the past five years furnishes ani inter
esting list 0 the countries that fail to
feed their own people. The average
annual export, amounting to $66536
201 of food and other farm products,
does not include all that our loreign
customers buy in these lines, for Rus
sia, Australia and Argentina f export
food- products in .considerable quanti
ties; but the United States, so far, lead
all other countries in this respect, that
our food products find a ? market, in
neatly all food importing countries.
.These official figures show that 88
per cent ' of all exported American
farm products find markets m Jburope,
, . f . i
anH ij ner cent in all other countries.
The chief part of this 12 per cent went
to Canada and the West Indies. Mexi
co and South America were ouv
customers to a very limited'j extent.
Oceanica. , including Hawaii, look a
few - steamer loads in far-away South
Africa. American flour and preserved
meats found purchasers, and the coun
tries of Asia are shown to be growing
customers, our ! exportation s tjo these
countries amounting to $3,83k(Oo8 in
1894, and to 114,671,341 in 1898, a gain
of $io.8iq,;u. in five years.. Our exoorts
of food prodacts to Asia in the latter
year exceeded our exports to South
America by about three millions of dol
lars. - ! . .
Our most important European cus
tomer was the United Kingdojm, which
took 62 per cent of the entire amount
exported to Europe during jthe five
years' period. Our farmers may sym
pathize with the Boers in their present
contest with the British Empire, but
Greaflf Britain is their best customer,
all the same. Of the other .European
countries Germany is our next best
customer, taking nearly 15 per cent,
the Netherlands 5 per cent.,j Belgium
4 per cent, Italy 2'2 per cent, spam
1.7 per cent, and Denmark r per cent
these Jigures are worm a caretui
study by our farmers t'eca,use they
show first where our food products go,
and second the countries in which the
demand is increasing and int which it
is worth while to make an effort to find
more extended markets, lfere seem
to be good fields for the extension of
this trade in South America,! the West
Indies, the Asiatic countries, and South
Africa, and we shall do well to .study
methods lot facilitating this extension.
WHERE EXPORTS SHOULD BE
In our rejoicing over the (rapid in
crease of our commerce we are all too
apt to grow eloquent over hc aggre
gate gain without taking much ac
count of the sources or causes of the
gain. A more careful scrutjiny of the
details would doubtless furnish valua
ble information about where to look
for future increase. The total increase
in our exports for 1899 ovejr those of
the previous year was Sio.o0o,ooa The
gain in exports in the Pacific trade
alone reached $19,000,000. Six millions
of this increase went to British Aus
tralia, four millions to Hawaii, four
millions to China and the ; remainder
to other Pacific ports. Imports in
creased $164,000,000, of which $48,oa,-
oco, or more than one-toarth. cam:
from Asia and Oceanica. ?
The largest item in this increase of
imports f.om Asiatic sources consisted
of sugar from theDutch East Indies
to the amount of $12,000,000, or nearly
viiv-tiau wi iiiv a,vt.si uuuytivn .
islands. The item of most! interest int
connection with these figures is that
the Dutch East Indies bought very lit
tle in return of their best customer. It
is worth while to investigate a ntue
he reasons why we imported from
these islands $12,000,000 worth of su
gar and other products- last year, while
we sold them but a paJtryi $2,000,000
worth of American goods. There should
be an excellent market herefor Amer
ican agricultural and otheif machinery.
These one-sided figures indicate that
Dutch sugar has been hunting a mar
ket and that our manufacturers and
merchants have been too busy to can
vass the Dutch East Indies for sales in
With a port of our own in Manila
as a commercial basis for extending
our trade in Asiatic waters, our man
ufacturing and exporting interests
should seek to extend our! export trade
to something like reciprtcal propor
tions, says the Philadelphia. Times.
While the rehabilitation of Cuba and
Porto Rico is likely to j decrease our
purchases of East Indian! sugar, our
imports of various kinds -from Asiatic
and Oceanic sources are bound to be
heavy, and where we purchase largely
we should sell largely.-- l.he steamers I
which carry Asiatic products to our
ports should return as heavily laden
with American products of various
kinds. 5 . f
, WHEELING VS. WALKING.
It is probable that if (cycling were
practiced with the same degree of mod
eration; as walking, and in a correct
upright position, it would, be no more
hurtful,' even to the victims of heart
trouble. Four ..miles, say at the rate of
five miles aa hour, could be done by a
delicate person with less fatigue than
one mile could be covered afoot, and
the superior exhilaration f of the wheel
would tone up the system better.
Wheeling is ; pleasure;?' walking is
drudgery that is the difference. Walk
ing is harmless, but footracing would
not answer at all for an -invalid. The
same distinction may be -made between
slow pedalling and scorching. It is the
abuse, -and not the use, bv the bicycle
that produces injury. i
THE STEPS HE WOULD TAKE.
A good, kind clergyman took a num
ber oJboys to the zoo in order to
teach them natural history, a study
greatly neglected by the middle classes,
relates the Chicago News, He took
them to see the lions fed, and in his
genial: way he enquired of the keeper:
"If one of these gigantic and ferocious
carnivora contrived to emancioate it
self and to hurl its prodigious strength

THE NEW CONSULAR BILL,
-' - (S. F. CalL) Ij '
For many years past the has been
an agitation in commercial circles for
reform and improvement in bur consu
lar service. The agitation has increased
withthe increase of our export trade,
and, it is safe to say, will no ceise un
til the demands of thr merehants snd
the needs""of the country haVe been
satisfied by enactment of a law provid
ing for an American consular j service
eual, if not superior, to that jet '. i ny
cter nation. '' ! ; -;',-?- 't
A year ago the leading commercial
bodies of the country appealed to con
gress to effect a reorganization of the
service. The last congress, however,
was too much occupied with5 war ques
tions to take up the subject, and. ; ac
cordingly the consular service bill pre
pared at that time was not act' d' rpori.
At this, session the issue is broaght for-
f - ward in a bill which ha been intro-
du-ed into the house by T. ,E. Burton
of Ohio, and on the same day into the
senate by Senator Lodge ,of Massa
chusetts. The bill was drawn' up by
representatives of large commercial or
ganizations, after consultation with
officers of the state d-partmnt and
others who have had experiencs in the
consularj service. It is, therefore, a
well considered measure and i proba
bly preferable to any other till of the
kind that has been submit ed.
Ihe bill provides for nine classes of
consuls, t The highest class .are to re
ceive a yearly salary of $5000 each, the
lowest class are to receive $1,500 each.
All fees, official or unofficial, for consu
lar services are to be accounted :for and
turned intlo the -treasury of the United
States. Within six months after the
passage of the act the president is to
classify the consulates in accordance
with the provisions of the law and
within two years all present j incum
bents are to come-home and pass ex
aminations asto their fitness for the
service. Each new consul when ap
pointed holds for a) year on probation,
and during that time may be removed
it the will of the president. If he prove
worthy and retain his office beyond a
year, he cannot thn be removed ex--ept
for cause. " f .
Two features of the bill are especially
"nteresting. One of these places the con
sular corps! at the orders of the presi
dent in the same way as the army and
navy Thus the government can at any
time 'detail a consul 6 report for duty at
my part of the wrld where his ser
vices may be .deemed most valuable.
The other permits .(the assignment, by,
die president's order, of any consul to
special duty in the United States for a
period of not more than one year at a
;ime, and permits the nomination to
consulates without exarnifiation of per
sons who have been in the classified
service of the state department for at
east two years, thus creating an mter--onvertible
service, land making exper
ence in the foreign service available
tor the home office and experience in

.service will be no longer a part of the
spoils of politics. ! tt will afford a per
