PATRONIZE HOME IMDUSTRY.
OBEGON CITY, JULY 22, 1898.
Eev. Sam Jones talks for the good of
Boston souls and as certainly fof the
good of his own pocket-book. According
to the Transcript, "he receives $2000 a
month and all his expenses paid." Sam
evidently believes in a "free gospal"
and well paid preachers;
Patriotism in the United States is not
confined to the distinguished individuals,
who went to the front in the war in an
official capacity. A number of Oregon
City boyB enlisted, giving up good
positions, and went to" the front as
privates. This is patriotism with a
genuine ring to it.
Never before have the ctass features
of the Willamette Valley Chautauqua
assembly been so prominently brought
out as at Gladstone park during the past
ten days. This Chautauqua assembly
destined to become a grand summer
school in the future, and students from
every section of the Northwest will
gather at Gladstone park to hear words
of wisdom from the greatest instructors
in the land. With these things will come
the beautifying of the park, and with its
location and delightful surroundings,
will possibly become a rival to old Lake
The union party in Oregon discovered
one great fact as the result of the elec
tion, and it is this- that fusion must be
very carefully considered if it is to be
effective. There is no use to put any
thing in the platform upon which all
are not agreed upon. The longer the
platform the greater are the grounds o
objection to it. "Short and Sweet,"
should be the motto. Neither nartv
should seek to force ts peculiar tenets
, uoon others. This was done at the
Portland convention, and it proved to
be a very sad mistake. A short plat
form containing something the peoule
aie anxious to hear, pleases the peoule
every time. These are points which
platform makers should pay much at
tention to before another elusion.
We notice with extraordinary disgust
a statement from some of the eastern
papers that Grover Cleveland is again
coming to the front as the great leader
of the democratic party. This is al1
nonsense. There is only one living man
who is entirely and absolutely dead in
the United States and that man is Gro
ver Cleveland. He wag honored bv the
democracy of the United States far be
yond his deserts, and he treated the
democracy with absolute brutality.
He cursed democratic leaders, and he
used all the power of his administration
to aid in the defeat of the democratic
party. His administration was run in
defiance of democratic principles, and
the heaviest loud the democracy had to
carry was that mountain of cussedness,
yclept Cleveland. We want no more
U'ONDKRFUL DISPLA Y
Henry Norman, commissioner of the
London Chronicle, thus discourse on our
And look at tho display of American
patriotism. When the volunteers were
summoned by the president they walked
on the scene as if they had been waiting
in tho wings. They were subjected to a
physical examination as searching a8
that of a life insurance company. A
man was rejected for two or three filled
teeth. They came from all ranks of life.
Young lawyers, doctors, bankers, well
paid durKs are marching by thousands
in the ranks. The first surgeon to be
killed at Guuntanamo loft a New York
practice of $10,000 a year to volunteer.
As I was standing on the steps of the
Arlington hotel one evening, a tall, thin
man, carrying a large suit-case, walked
out and got on tho street car for the
railway Btation, on his way to Tampa.
It was John Jacob Astor, the possessor
of a hundred millions of dollars. Theo
dore Roosevelt's Hough Kidors contain
a number of thesmurtest young men in
Now York society. A Harvard class
mate of mine, a rising young lawyer, is
working like a laborer at the Brooklyn
navy yard, not knowing when he may
bo ordered to Cuba or Manila. He is a
naval reserve man and soul in his ap
plication for any post "from the stoke
hole upwards." The same is true of
women. When I called to say good-by
to Mrs. John Addison Porter, tho wife of
the secretary of the president, whose
charming hospitality I had enjoyed, Bhe
1 1 iid cone to Tiuupa to shin as a nurse on
the lied Cross steamer for the coast ol
Cuba. And all this, be it remembered, is
for a war in which the country is not in
tho remotest danger, and when the ulti
mate summons of patriotism is utv
upoken. Finally, consider the reference
to the war Joan. A New York syndicate
offered to take half of it at a premium
which would have given tfie government
a clear profit of a million dollars. But
the loan was wisely offered to the peo
ple, and the small investor gets all he
can buy before the capitalist is even per
mitted to invest. And from Canada to
the Gulf, from Long Is'and to Seatile.
the money of the people is pouring in.
As I write, it is said the loan will be all
taken up in small amounts.
It is true that soldiers in Florida
should notj be fed on pork and beans,
and that campaigners in Cuba should
not wear thick cloth uniforms. But
while these truths may be remembered,
another should not be forgotten that
the American people have responded to
their country's call with instant and
THE CHAUTAUQUA ASSEflBLY.
Jlost Successful Gathering In Its
The fifth annual session of the Wil
lamette Valley . Chautauqua Associa
tion, closes Saturday night with a grand
musical concert, and a magnificent dis
play of fireworks, consisting of 20 pie
ces and including the battleship Ore
gon. This has been the greatest of the
assemblies held in Gladstone park.
Its grand educational work has now
reached a permanent systemized stage,
and will be the crowning glory of future
One of the features of the assembly is
the variety of class departments. There
were at least 600 pupils in the various
classes, indicating that the educational
feature of the assembly is beginning to
be appreciated. Dr. B. A. Heritage has
about 100 pupils in bis vocal music
classes, and President W, O Hawley, of
Willamette university, has fully as many
in his American history class. The
other classes are also Well patronized, all

Many talented orators and entertainers
have swayed the audiences from the
platform during this Assembly. Hoyt
L. Coimry, of Boston, the prince of en
tertainers, is a cousin of A. S. Dresser,
of this city. "
John Temple Graves, of Atlanta, Ga.,
delivered a lecture last Thursdav even
ing on the "Last Hope of the Negro,"
in which ho contended that the proper
solution of the problem, was colonizing
the Negroes into one stnte, and giving
them their own local government.
At the close of Mr. Graves' address,
President W.C. Hawley, of Willamette
university, offered the following resolu
tion, which was adopted amid considera
ble applause :
"Kesolved, That we thank Mr. Graves
for his earnest, fair and plain presenta
tion of a very important subject ; that
we commend his patriotism, ability and
philanthropy, and that we promise to
carefully consider the plan presented,
and prepare ourselves for proper political
action when the time for action conies."
The Native Sons and Daughters' head

The Chautauqua girl is an evolution of
the Chautauqua idea at Gladstone Park.
She has been undergoing the process of
development during the past five annual
assemblies, until she is now a distinct
creature from her fellow morals. She is
usually a school teacher, or at any rate,
is studiously inclined, and takes particu
lar interest in her favorite classes, and
nearly always helps to swell tho lecture
audiences in the auditorium . The Chau
tauqua girl is not confined to any partic
ular residence, locality.' Her home may
be in Portland or Salem or among the
classic hills of Yamhill and Polk coun
ties ; the usually camp in squads of two
or three or more, although a few of them
board at private houses. They can be
readily recognized by the sort of Bos
tonian air of intellectuality, and it is be
lieved that they have come to stay and
usually do stay until the assembly is over.
There are about 50 more campers'
tents, than at any previous assembly.
