The republican state central committee
Lave called the state convention to meet
at Lincoln on July 23rd at 8 p. m. and it
has recommended that no proxies be ad
mitted, but that delegates present cast
the full yote of the delegation.
PnEsiDKJiT Harrison ha9 begun to
veto bills for public buildings at points
where they are not needed and the peo
ple will sustain him in such a method of
enforcing the idea of economy and pre
venting the waste of money.
The decrease of the public debt dur
ing the month of May was T,6G1.S71
and in the eleven months just ended
nearly $ 08,000,000. The republican or
ganization has always stood at the head
for paying debts.
Under the action of congress passed
last April a general pardon has been
cranted to deserters from the regular
army. The proclamation of amnesty
carries freedom from arrest to thirty-two
thousand men, a number greater than
the rank and file of the present army.
An Atlanta paper has made a compu
tation in advance of the census which
shows that the Southern States have de
creased their bondid debts more rapidly
than the Northern States. This is grati
iyiug, of cource; and it goes to show at
the same time that the republican party
has not so administered the affairs of the
government as to injure the South.

Congressman Breckinridge is griev
ed because the house committee on elec
tions will not go to Arkansas again to
hear the testimony of about a thousand
alleged witni&es. Mr. Breckenridge
should have produced his witnesses
while the committee were at Little Rock
about a month ago. His own witnesses
then presented gave the best evidence
of election frauds by showing the com
mittee's danger in visiting Arkansas, and
especially the town where Colonel Clay
ton was murdered. Mr. Breckenridge's
anxiety for investigation savors of that
of the man who is bold in defense of
justice when far from the scene of his
crimes against justice.
Down with the political striker. Be
he either democrat or republican, he
cares not a whit for party success, so
long as he can satisfy his own insatiate
greed and glorify his own record. He
is a pestilential cormorant that feeds
upon and thrives and grows fat upon
the discordant elements in both patties.
He finds a small spark among the embtrs
of discontent, and if he can do so, he
fans it into a mighty flame that he may
reap a rich harvest therefrom. He is like
the man who the poet says "hath not
music in his soul," and is fit therefore,
for treasons, tratagems and spoils.'
He has too long thriyen upon the people
of this state; let all parties join m a
grand crusade this year and give him a
black eye. Again, down with the ward
heelers, the political strikers, the whip
crackers and the boodle peddlers. Ve
are entering on an era of reform in poli
tics, let us purge the parties from all un
cleanness. Linool Call.
Oregon is one of the smallest of all the
states in point of numbers, but its popu
lation is fairly representative, politically
speaking, of the country as a whole. At
least that proved to be the case in 1S8S.
Its state election occurring the second
day of June gives it a special prominence.
It thus has the honor to fire the first gun
of the season. Two years ago the vote
for the one congressman of the state
stood: Republican, 32,820; democrat,
23,413, giving the former a majority of
7,407. The returns for Monday are not
all in yet, but Congressman Hermann's
majority is estimated at from 0,000 to
8,000. The Gubernatorial vote, owing
to strictly state issues, is very close, with
Governor Pennover, democrat, apparently
in the lead. Senator Mitchell received a
dispatch at Washington from a member
elect of the legislature that "Oregon in
dorses the McKinley bill and nermann."
That is precisely the significance of the
At the time Oregon held its congres
sional election immediately preceding
the one of this week the republican party
was on the eve of the presidential cani-
pUlii. If there was any disposition on
the part of any appreciable element of
the party to weaken on protection those
returns acted an tonic. They were in
terpreted as the voice of the Pacific slope
saying to the republican Prty, "Stand
by your colors," and the evenc of No
vember justified that interpretation most
fully. The message tlon sent out was
addressed to the national republican con
vention. In this la'ter case the message
is t the United States sen.ite. That
body is now charged with the duty of
acting up-'ii the great question of read
justing the tariff. Tin- McKinley bill
has become the hou'e bill, ami should
soon become the republican tMiiff law.
Some changes are to be expected, but no
letting down in protective character
should be allowed. Oregon has spoke
in a tone too plain to be misunderstood
and too loud to be unheard. Above the
hum and roar of the national capital may
be heard the voice of the Pacific slope en
couraging the republicans in the senate
to emulate the example of the house in
the settlement of the question which di
rectly concerns production and labor
from one end of the land to the other.
The opinion of Attorney General Mil
ler on the scope and effee the irriga
tion act of 1888 is of greu importance to
the arid region of the west. The act is
declared to be a sweeping reservation of
all arid lands susceptible of cultivation
by irrigation. Its object was "'to prevent
entry, settlement or sale of all that part
of the arid region of the public lands of
the United Sfates which could be im
proved by general systems of irrigation,
and of all lands that might thereafter be
designated or selected by the United
States surveys as sites for reservoirs, ca
nals or ditches of such systems." The
effect of this construction will be to with
draw from entry or sale all arid lands
until congress acts on one or more of the
pending irrigation bills or modifies the
act of 1888 While the withdrawal of
these lands will temporarily check private
investment in irrigution canals, it will
eventually prove beneficial to the country.
It will prevent monopolies of water
rights and enable congress to demise a
broad and liberal system of laws regulat
ing the use of mountain streams, the
proper location of reservoirs and deter
mine the area tributary to each stream.
Such laws are essential to the permanent
welfare of the arid states and territories.
A NEW EMPIRE AMONG US.
Ten years ago the population of the
United States, as shown by the figures
collected by the enumerators of the gov
ernment, was 50,1"5.443. Today, ac
cording to the most conservative esti
mates, it reaches 03,000,000. The ayer
age increase in the dccadis since 17U0,
when the first count was made, has been
considerably over 30 per cent. It was
35.10 between 17J0 and 1800, 30.38
from the latter date to 1810, 33.00 be
tween that time and 1820, 32.31 in 1820
30, 33 52 in 1830-40, 35.83 in 1840-50,
35.11 in 1850-00, 22.5 in lfviO-70, and
30-08 in 110-80. The low ratio of in
crease from 1800 to 1870 as due to the
civil war, which largely reduced immi
gration and lessened the birth rate. Iu
no ottyer ten-year period, except the one
which closed in 1880, did the advance
drop below 32 per cent. An addition
now equal to that of the latter decade,
and most authorities believe that that
will be at least equaled, would add 15,
000,000 to the country's inhabitants and
bring the total up to the 03,000,000
It is probable that the average reader
fails to grasp the entire dimensions and
significance of this tremendous expan
sion in population. The numWer of new
residents which the country has gained
since 1880 is almost as great as the en
tire population of Spain, as great as that
of Mexico and Canada togeth r, or as
Belgium, the Netherlands and Portugal
combined. The additions to our inhabi
tants iu the last ten year exceed five fold
the aggregate population of the thirteen
colonies at the time of their separation
from Great Britain. Iu the period named
a new nation, so to speak, largely sur
passing in number that of any entire civ
ilized country, except Russia, Germany,
ustro-IIungary, France, Great Britain
and Italy, has arisen among us. Be
tween 1830 and 1800 we passed the
United Kingdom in inhabitants, and sub
sequently we left trance, Austro-IIun-gary
and Germany behind, while we will
overtake and sweep by Russia, taking
the first place among the world's enlight
ened states, iu the decade which ends
with 1010. Globe-Democrat.
RELIEF FOR THE FARMERS.
Senator Carlisle's letter with regard to
the proposed storage of farm products in
government warehouses is a very plain
and conclusive demonstration of the in
herent weakness of such a method of
solving the agricultural problem. To
be" in with, he shows that m t more than
one third of the countries could take ad
vantage of the scheme, as only that num
ber produce and sell the stipulated
amount ot farm staples. Thus the few
rich and largely productive localities
would receive most of the benefit, and
would at the same time kc'tc an Arbi
trary and valuable advantage over the
majority ot competing district. The
government would issue money, not to
the most needy but to the least needy of
the fanning class, and the former would
be in a worse instead of a better condi
tion than they are at present. A discrim
ination of this sort is certainly not desir
able; and yet it is practically unavoidable
considering the different degrees of
wealth and fertility that prevails in dif
ferent sect ions even of the saiil'f state.
Any plan of relief that can be expected
to yield satisfactory results must be uni
form and impartial in its operations. A
proceeding that docs not guarantee such
service can only tend to provoke com
plaint and o multip y existing evils.
The greatest objection to the project,
however, lies in the fact that at best it
only promises temuorary succor. As Mr
Carlisle points out, the receipts given for
stored products would simply correspond
to pawnbrokers' tickets. The tanner
would haye a privilege of redemption,
and nothing more. It not prepared to
return at the appointed time the money
advanced to him he would have to let
his properly go lor what it would bring,
just as he now does, with the difference
that he could not hope to get as much as
he realizes under the present system. He
would be absolutely at the mercy of the
speculators, who would be fully advised
not only of his personal embarrassment.
but also of the general condition of the
farming interest and the extent of the
supply of every product. There would
be no more chance then than there is now
for the f irmer to escape his debts except
by paying them. The loans made by
the government would be the same in all
essential features as loans made by cor
porations or individuals. It would re
quire just as many dollors to liquidate
them, and the usual processes of fore
closure ami sale would ensue in cases of
default. The interest charge would bj
much lower, but the principle would be
no easier to pay, and it is the principal
rather than the interest that constitutes
the burden. Manifestly, therefore, this
elaborate and picturesque sub-treasury
device is not calculated to accomplish
the desired object. From any point of
view it is fatally defective. The most
that it could possibly do for the farmer
would be to change the form of his in
debtedness, without affecting its char
acter, or providing any new means of
payment; and that kind of relief could
only be regarded as a mockery. Globe
