m THE ST. JOHNS REVIEW BY A. W. MARKLE -Pubtlahod Every Friday At 117 West Burlington Street. Tint UltVJKW Is entered nt post office in Snint Johns, Oregon, ns mail tnnttcr of the second class under the Act of Con rfress of March 3, 1879. Official Hewipaper of the City of St. Jetuu. Suborlptlon prloo $1.00 per year. At Kelley Butte, witli crimlniil labor working for cheap board and no salary, it costs one dollar per yard to crush rock. The Whitwood Quarry Co. furnishes rock to the city of St. Johns nt 82 i-2c per yard, and yet pay from $2.25 to $3.00 per day for labor. The for mcr is municipally conducted, the latter by a corporation. Another case of a corporation robbing (?) the people. 1 Several bills are now pending in Congress empowering tiie Secretary of the Interior to set aside a tract of not exceeding four sections of unoccupied public lands in a salu brious section to be temporarily used by the Ureter of ywls lor a sanitarium and camping ground, subject to control of the national of ficials of that association, and when such laud censes to be used for such purposes for n period of two years it shall revert to the United States. We can see no objection to the enactment of such a bill. Oth er fraternal orders might make the same request, but there is plenty of vacant public laud that might well be used for such purposes without working an injury to the public, since it is optional with legislators as to how much laud be donated for the purpose. A dream most rosy, that in the socialist column this week. Ten dollars per day for labor would be exceedingly pleasant, but one can not help but wonder where this munificent pay is coining fromlsince there is not money to exceed $150 for unci! person over 10 years of age in the country. If alt would work 15 days steady, without drawing pay at $10 er day, all the money of Uncle Sinn's domain would be absorbed, and then the government would have to wail until the people began to draw and spend it before work could continue, unless it be on credit. Hut a peculiar feature is mat the government now does not own a penny of this wealth, because it owes millions more than it possesses. Perhaps, however, it is the intention of socialism to (lis nense with the gold and silver and adopt "hhin plasters" or even potatoes as a medium of exchange. The old soldiers had an experience with shin plasters, and it would pleasc(?) them immensely to revert back to the same old system, fo tatoott mtgm do. Dccnusc there are so many of them, but very unhandy to puck around. 1 Here is no occa sion for any one to starve or freexe in this country and few do. "Mil lions starving is all "itoppycock It uuver hapiieiiN in real life. The writer asks us to explain about the woolen mill iiiNtuuce in St. Johns. Utidur government nwuciship of all utilities, thete would be 110 woolen mills in St. Johns, we believe. Larger and, therefore, more ecoiiom ical mills would be built in some ol the larger cities. The women would have nothing to do but housework, because the men must be employed first, and theie would not le enough employment for both. It is far more chivalrous for the male eli iiieut to do the work, anyway. It is generally conceded, even by the socialists, that enough is now pro ducud in the 1'uitcd States in the way of food, clothing, etc., to com fortably supply all with sufficient, but the distribution is wild to be at fault. With so-called millions ot men now out of employment, mid the millions more that would Iom- their employment through social istic conditions, Deniiies 11100 now employed, all at production work, where would the women te given a chance? Or would it lw better foi all to work one year ami rest the noxt year? Tlmt WOUI.I) be nice. If those ministers mentioned by the socialist writer preach nothing. but a material teligiou, which the socialist writer says is socialist doctrine, they tuo out of place in any church. If we Imve any re gard for the teachings of the Scrip turns, we imtht believe that spirit ual religion is essential to salvation, no matter How well we treat our fellow men. Sutcly there must lx .something mote to religion than simply pieveutiug any one from getting any money unless he earns it with his own hands. As we tin derstaud the socialist writer's argir meiit, that is the beginning and end of socialist religion. Not that one man will love another better, or that the flow of the milk of human kindiiuss will be greater, but it is simply to keep one inun from se curing more of this world's goods than another, unless he can save more from his daily wage, For a )oor man to drag a rich man down to own level financially MIGHT make them love each other better, but we think not. We have no special love for the rich man, as the writer intimate, because the rich man is not in our class, but wu do believe in giving him a square deal.

It will set n price 011 certain kinds of labor and if there is 110 other kind of labor in sight, one must accept it -or starve.
