AH but eight per cent, of our foreign
trade is carried in foreign ships, re
marks 4he New York 'Mail and Ex-press-
of the 3d. To that 'enormous ex-
tent , mis country is ; ocpenoent uporr
foreign shippings. Should Great -Brit-atn
become involved K a war with
any Jot the powers of continental Eu
rope as at any trme she may war
rates of insurance would immediately
double, if not quadruple, the cost ci
ocean transportation. Ertgrand s trans
port service for the Transvaal war has
MUch'cred considerably this winter with
our; shippers. The vast and expanding
commerce of the United States is in-
rhe.'uns2ble and defeoseless condition
of trttcr dependence upon the carriers
of its political and commercial rivals.
In itich a possrble war, ships -would dis'
appear iron tne sea, our commerce
would pile up on our wharves and
stagnation in trade would follow.
That we have escaped these possible
disasters for thirty-fiVe years is no
assurance of continued immunity. It is
fallacious to believe that the wholesale
transfer otf British tannage to a neutral
flag would be permitted by ahy great
nation with which she was at war.
Ships so transferred -would be liable to
seizure and their cargoes to confisca
tion or lorig detention.
The foreigr commercial interests of
tflie nation have grown- too great to re4
main longer dependent upon- the peace
of Europe. We possess the materials,
the skill, the capital and the commerce
for the construction of a great mer
chant marine of our own. Nothing is
lacking but Congressional action to
inaugurate a policy that shall rapidly
relieve us from the humiliating position
of dependence upon foreign shipping
for our foreign- carrying. The stability
given to our foreign1 trade, under the
care of our carriers, would cause its en
orr.ious and rapii and 'permanent and
There is nothing the country mt urg
ently needs as a great mercantile ma
rine. The Mail and Express conchides:
""Congress should heed the wishes of
the people, the' solicitation- of great
commercial and agricultural organiza
tions, the need off the nation- and pass
the shipping bill at once."
Either this- or a discriminative duty
in favor of 'American bottoms. The
latter being at this time impossible, we
believe, with the Mail and Express, that
the shipping bill, in its amended form,
should be passed.
THE PA N-A'M ER 1 OA'N CONFER
ENCE. The proposed Paw-American Con
gress to be held in the City of 'Mexico
during the summer and autumn of 1901
is an enterprise deserving of encourage
ment. The interests of the several
countries on the American continent
are mutual, not antagonistic. Wc sec
it reported that the people of some of
the South and Central American repub
lics have been led to believe to the con
trary, and it; is essential that this mis
apprehension should be removed.
Whilcj it is clearly to the advantage of
the people of the United States to se
cure the, largest possible exchange of
products with their Spanish-American
neighbors, it is not to their advantage
to engage in an effort to absorb Spanish-American
territory hy conquest or
otherwise, and no considerable portion
of the American people favor anything
of the kind. 'Our "venture in the West
Indies was undertaken in the interest
of oppressed humanity, but with our
sister republics we have and can have
The interested agents of foreign
trade are said to have busily fanned the
flame of suspicion in those countries
for the past year or two. and the de
cline of our exports in South ami Cen
tral America indicates that this anti
Amerrcan propaganda has not
beers without effect. The first
ajwl supreme effort of those
reprcsefJtirrg, the - United ' States
at 'Mexico should be to counteract this
impression1, and this should be followed
by a ' practical movement to create the
conditions for increased trade with our
neighbors. We should first assure ,onr
neighbors that the United Statesr is
not a natiow of land (grabbers, - and
then we should establish steamship
lines ad furnish the practical condi
tions for an exchange of our products
for the coffee, sugar, hides, rubber and
other Spanish-American products. '
Acquaintance promotes trade and
commerce, and conference and prox
imity promotes acquaintance. A corr
ferc nee between the chief commercial
representative Of the principal Ameri
can republics will te the best possible
meat of promoting better comniercial
t elation 5, and a better place than the
City of -Mexico could not be chosen in
nhrch to hold it.
Mr. Wrightman will no doubt make
a very good chairman of the central
committee. -He should have the. hear

THE ONLY ONE.
: One of the planks of the Democratic
p!a6fornT should be and probably will
be a plain-, frank, open declaration
fa-vor -of the construction of the
Nicaragua canal. It is as plain as any
thing can be that railroad influences
are strong enough to prevent the Re
publican parry -in power from takm-g up
and carrying forward his great national
work. At present rt is being made
football of by Congress- Sor the purpose
of throwing dust in the eyes of the
American people. There is really" no
imentioin of giving the matter favorable
attention, -with a view of commencing
nri worlc at; an. early day. The rail
riad trust is unalterably opposed to the
tonstruction of the canal and its agents
in Congress are pulling the wires' in
such a way as to make the people be'
lieve t'liat Con-gress means to do some
thing in this connection! w-henv in fact
it is the furthest from its deliberations.
" 'Pendleton East Oregorwan.
; One of the planks' of the Republican
platiorm in 1896 was "a plain, frank
open declaration in lavor ot the con
struction of the 'Nicaragua canal;" and
this is the only unredeemed pledge of
that platform. There is work of the
son inz .ast tjrezontan aescrfDes m
Congress now; but it is by no meants
confined to the Republican) members
And flie bill may yet be taken-up at the
present session and passed. Senator
McBride is very anxious to have this
done. If not, the representatives of
tlhe party in -national . convention as
sembled will no doubt repeat the dec
laratron, and the project cannot be
much longer delayed, even with the
assistance of the railroad lobby. The
other members of the Oregon delega
iion are aiso lavoraDie to the measure
and they will do all poss?bIe now and
in tle future to push it forward.
The people of- Puerto Rico arexall
ing for a settlement ot the tariff ques
tion one way or the other. They are
not particular whether they are to have
free trade or pciy the very small duty
of 15 or 25 per cent, of the Dimgley
rate, but tfhey want a settlement. . The
peojrfc opposin-g the house bilh are us
ing every possible subterfuge to pre
vent a settlement and prevent a vote.
thus continuing the uncertain coredi
tions now existing in; -Puerto Rico, de
lerring a settlement and intensify ing in
dustrial conditions. A month's delay
with the present 100 per cent, duties
in force is equivalent? to extending the
house bill nearly seven months. Who
are the frictwl-j of Puerto -Rco? The
ones who want to settle the question
collect this very small; duty largely
from the wealthy purchaser of sugar
and tobacco, to be used for the benefit
of the people of the island until they
cart organize a legislature and provide
other means for taxes and thirs settle
industrial conditions, or those who are
making a political football of this Pu
erto Rican bill, at tho expense of the
uerto Rican&v and are, continuing" ex-.
sting uncertainties, . with the idea,
as Senator Mason states, "that they think

- i and -His Contemporaries. -
Beriah (Brown, who died recently , in
Anaconda. Monti ot rjneumcr.ia, wa
at one time one c4; the bestknown cd
itors in the United States, and had
personal acquaintance with all the
prominent men of 'his time irbm -Maine
to Calitomia-' says the A,meago inter

Greclev were room-mates at the i61d
Graham -House in New York, and both
being men of. sharp; wit and" differing
opinions, their debates -were constant
ana neitner ever succeeaea in convmc
ing the other of the error .of his ways.
Thev never had t aj personal quarrel
and when their "ways separated they
kept p a correspondence -until Mr.

Lewis- Cass, the famous 'Michigan
politician, was another friend of Brown

James Buchanan, Stephen. A. Douglas
and 'Horatio ieyfliour -were au close
personal friends ! off iMr. 'Brown. For
more than- twenty hyears -Mr." iirown
was identified wHhj the political arid
educational interests of -Wisconsin
and during that tsrrie he ran for con
gress against Johr F. Potter, later
known as "Bowie j Knife," owing, to
his choice of bowiei knives .when chal
lenged by iReprcscn-tative Roger A

In 1855 Mr. Brown retired to pri
vate life and -begani the building' of a
railroad from Alilwaukee to toupenor
with the expectation of pushing it
throngh to the Pacific. The main
work slipped through 'Mr. Brown's
hands, but he received $60,000 in sec
ond mort-srajrej -bonds, which he took
to New York? ipd jsold- to -Helmbold,
the "Buchu" man. at par. -Mr. Helen
bold gave him a check -for the amohnt
and sent it by a boy to have it cashetl.
The boy returned I m a lew minutes
saying that the bank had closed its
doors. Then 'Mr. j Helmbold hurried
over to Jersey Citi where he arrived
rive minutes alter the bank had closed
and this was the beginning of the great
panic of 1857, when) every bank in the
city closed its door.
In 186.2 Mr. Brown moved to Cal
ifornia. and when Lincoln was killed.
his office, - the Democratic Press, was
sacked by a mob. land a priceless li
brary of 20,000 volumes, which he had
been years in collecting tor the pur
pose of writing a political history of
the country, was piled up in the street
and ourncd. f
In 1867 .'Brown went to -Seattle and
ssued the 'Dispatch the first daily pa
per in that city. .Mr. Brown made a
creat ficht' against? the Northern Pa
cific when it selected Taconva as the
terminus of the road. That Eastern
nvestors kept away and that Jay
CJooke arid the Northern Pacific went
into bankruptcy arej matters ot history.
'llrown was several years past the
fourscore point, and although his hcar-
ng was ; detective, his mind was keen.

O NE GOOD WOR D ' i
- ' FOR INDIANS,
"Indians make good witnesses arid
they stick closer , to facts than white"
people." 1 x
This-statement was made by Judire
0, P.-Shiras of the United States dis
trict court of northern iowa to a Chi
cago Record reporter. He speaks from
his experience in trying many cases in j
which Indians were concerned or an- j
pearcd as witnesses. . He was ap- !
pointed during the administration of
President Chester A. Arthur and has
uvm vviniiruaiy njrtiir vvuu in. niS
own district and- within the Eighth
United States judicial district, which
comprises 13 srates and three territories, i''
This federal district, leaving out ' the
state 01 rveniucKy, is larger than 1 all
the territory east of the Mississippi
river.: . .;''!; 1 . ,.
Speaking of his interesting experience'
in coming in contact with the Indians
iitjcourt, he says the red .man or wo
man is generally accurate. His ob
servation was general. 'He says: "Ask
a white man if he was drunk on a cer
riin occasion, he will try to wries?V
ovt of., it, but rhe Indian will come out
with a yes if he was. On one occa
sion a lawyer asked a squaw if she un-T
-dcrstood the nature of her obligation
in giving te.stimonShe answered that
she had taken a 'strung word to tell
the truth and she. would do -so. Sh(f
was asked to define the difference be
tween the truth and a. lie.Xwhereunon
she said: "The truth is the truth and a
lie is a lie; they are different and you
can't make them alike.' i
"You will remember that someXsix
years ago an Indian named Plenty '
Horses was being tried in Sioux Fa!ls
for the murder of Coloner Casey of the
United 'States army. One- of the wit
nesses brought in by the government
was American Horse. . There had been
a Messiah craze among the Indians,
and a religious phase had been- injected
into the trial.
"In the examination of American:
Horse he was asked what he knew
about religion. There stood near by
a small table, which the witness drew
near him. He placed his finger .on the
center of the tafblc and drew, a circle
about it. saying: 'This is what the red
man knows about religion;' then he
drew- a larger circle, saying that t the
white man lcnew that' much more. Mov-."
ing his finger around the outside of
the larger circle, he said: 'Bcvoml
this the red man knows as much. about
the. coming of a 1Messiah as the white
man.' -- '.
Judge Shiras says the Indian makes
a good juror, in which capacity he may
sir after reliivtiishing tribal relations.
He says, too, that lie 'has comc in con
tact -with some -good Indian lawyers. I
. "I think," said he, "there is a mis
taken idea, about the red man having
been generally mistreated by the gov
ernment. The facts show : that they .
are the richest people per capita in the
whole country. The trouble is that
they have a poor idea of the value of
money, and spend it recklessly. In
dians will walk clear across one state
iirto another to draw their amMi.iijes
and in ZX hours after gefting the mon
ey they will have gambled every cent
of it away before they will leave the '
vicinity and then Walk back home to J
do the same thing over on the next
pay -day. ':;-..
"It is astonishing to see the meth- ,
odi adopted by an intelligent red man
to tget away with his money. Amon-g 4
other things he has a weakness tor :a .
certain kind of amusement known as
the 'merry-go-round.' Recently on?
rit these concerns got permission to set
up one of its machines on. a reserva
tion Wilhin mv circuit. The bucks
would gather about the contrivance ,
and to the tune of a steam-tUrncd or
gan -would ride the whole day. - They
spent all the money they had and
pawned different article's to get more
for the same amusement. " ,
"During the last- few years flic wo
men took a great craze for wearing -
bhie bathing suits trimmed in white
braid. The traders are said to have'
disposed of a lame nuantitv of this
toggery, the squaws wearing the-in all
the tim tirtt J iworn rnt . alii-n thir
would buy another suit." I
