the employes of this institution tlmt
tliey must pay an assessment for
eampaiu purposes, and tlmt they

there is vigorous kicking in or about
the penal abode is a malieious false
hood. 1 am utterly opposed to tho
assessment system as it is an oil
spring of the republican party and
therefore my detestation of it. If
such was my poliey it would bo un
necessary to refer back to Napoleon
but simply to the more recent au
thorthe republican party who
never failed to assess all employes

M. .1. McKinxon,
Injustice to Warden McKinnon
we publish his letter as requested.
The sole difference between that
official and the Capital Joiihxai.
is lu the use of terms. Ho admits to
this writer that he passed a subscrip
tion paper among ills subordinates,
who signed their money for various
amounts with the utmost willing
ness. AVe charged him with levy
ing assessments; Warden .Mc
Kinnon says he only took up a
collection. What's In a name'.'
Collecting money for campaign
purposes of government employes
lias become an abomination to the
American people, it iscondemned by
civil service rules, and President
Cleveland has pronounced against
the practice in several state papers.
Thousands of republican olllce
holders have bei-u removed for
"ollensive partisanship" who-o sole
offense was voting a republican
ticket; yet here we have a prominent
state official collecting forced
lienevolenees from his underlings,
and he feels injured when twitted
wlththeofl'ense. In political life there
Isa wide difference between Tweedle
dum and Tweedledee.
Tiik real estate boom has collapsed
in southern California towns, and
a painful question is arising where
labor Is to be procured to save the
grain and the fruit crops. Itut
these troubles sink into insignifi
cance by the side of the Imperiled
saloons. Ht. John jinil his follow
dlsoiplori seem .to have impressed a
numlKir of their hearers with the
merits of total abstinence, and thoo
are now painfully concerned about
tho wolfareof tho unconverted. In
Pasudona tho wiloonsareelo-ed, and
in I.os Augulutf tho Industry of tho
mixologist Is about to be destroyed.
To the aveniKu toper it must look as
If the end of the world was enuiliijf.

The Statesman tells us this morn
ing that St. John does not endorse
the statement made by "the little
giant," that the prohibitory laws in
Kansas and Iowa are not enforced
in good faith. This is a damaging
confisslon to the prohibition party.
Republicans who are sincere and
practical in their efforts at moral
reform, In waging war upon alcohol
ism are content to redeem one state
at a time. Maine, Rhode Island,
Kansas, Iowa have excluded the
liquor traffic from their limits, and
in several other states, where public
opinion will not sustain prohibition,
it has been restrained by high li
cense and local option. IJut Mr.
Mills scouts all this successftil labor
as useless. What tho common sense
of the American people regard as
half a loaf he casts aside as "more
beer" and what is joyously hailed
as "a step in the right direction,"
he perversely declares is "a long
stride the other way." Prohibition
in Kansas and Iowa Mr. Mills re
jects as a delusion and a snare. He
tells his hearers that the republicans
in those states are not enforcing the
anti-liquor laws with any heartiness
for fear of losing votes; that the
liquor trade in those states is unre
strained, ami there Is Just enough
racket kept up to Impose on outside
communities and save the reputa
tion of the party. Tills damaging
allegation Mr. St. John denies. Ac
cording to our morning cotempor
ary this gentleman admits that "the
whisky law in Kansas is enforced
with as much certainty and readi
ness as any criminal statute In ex
istence." Which of these two plat
form orators tells the truth'.' I)oes
Mr. Mills know "whereof lie speaks
so confidently? OrN be misleading
the public on mere hearsay and
conjecture'.' Men who come into
our midst teaching morality and re
form should be above the low arts
of the demagogue. They
should tell tho truth and
hew to tlie Hue, no nmtterwhere the
chips fall. The people of Oregon as
elsewhere are desirous to aid in the
exorcism of the evil spirit of rum,
and they look for honesfy in the
professional champions who come
lie re to aid them in (lie work. Ihil
the spectacle is presented tousof one
contradicting the other; I hose who
come to bear witness do not agree in
the same story.
This truth remains to have weight
on the minds of republicans. The
pasnlon for strong drink can only be
dealt with effectively by practical
measures. Where popular senti
ment will sustain absolute prohibi
tion such exclusion is enforced; but
wherethis assent cannot beobtuined,
restriction by means of high license
willi other stringent regulations is
resorted to. This Is done in good
faith and witli very encouraging
results. Those extremists who come
among us, scouting all thai has been
doue,and inqicrlously demanding all
or nothing, are not to be accepted as
safe guides; either they are one-Idea
men who lack a balance wheel, or
they have a purpose of their own to
subserve which is not consistent with
the jiublie weal. It Is well enough
to hear them talk, but we should
guard against being misled by their
sophistry and misstatements.

I'aius, April 18. The Figaro pub
lishes an Interview with Uoulanger,
in which the latter says: "It was
not 1 who first thought of the presi
dency of the republic. All my
hopes centered In my return to tho
Ministry. Now it is true that my
tViends hold out tome tho prospect,
of the til's! magistracy In the state.
Will you call me ambitious If I say
1 have not been able to avoid look
ing at the prospect?
"I have no liking for dragging
my sword after mo in time of peace.
If we had war, every one knows 1
would take it up again. It Is Idiotic
though to say, 'Houlanger, e'est la
guerre.' Why should I think ol
war when neither France '.nor Oer
many wish it? Prepare to wage it?
Yes. Declare it? JJevcr."
