In the midst of prosperity wp are aleo
in the midst of the most appalling pov
erty that the world has ever seen. This
is an auomaly, but it is true, neverthe
less. It is runortPd that the beef embaliners
finding themselves short on grain con
tracts, are rigging the market to prevent
(lie farmers of the United States jetting
a fair price for crops this year.
IIahpku'r WKKKLY.New Pork Sun and

from just now as independent papers of
democratic inclinations are owned by J.

Thkke was organized, recently, at Abi
lene, Kan., the "Kuinhts'of the Soil."
Each lodge.', is called a "Hv'ai Farm,"
and lo presided over by a '" Heft fat tfa
er." The purposes of the' organizatiou
are thus statu : It is in tin nature of a
trust,! n which farmers of the west are
to be interested. Members are to. mike
geporL to the Supreme Farm, or Lodge,
as required by the head 'officers, of the
number of acres of given grains raised
and the crop held in stock. It is pro
posed that the lodges shall help their
members to hold . their grain for higher
prices, and that there shall be mutual as
sistance given to. those who are in need."
The culture of opium is carried on by
every villager in India. The British
government, through its officials, the
opium agents, robs the poor, ignorant
ratals mercilessly They receive from
3 to 4 rupees (a rupee is worth 1 s, id)
per pounds, and the government,
which monopolizes the opium trade.sells
it, after adulteration, for 35 to 45 rupees
perl pounds. The adulterant is dried
poppy leaves, for which the raiata re
ceive 3 to 4 rupees per manud. . In most
cases the peasant has been obliged to
borrow money to raise his crop, and he
goes home to his family empty-handed
to starve. Could any state of existence
be more miserable or pitiable than that
of Queen Victoria's Indian subjects?
THE RAILROAD PROBLEM.
i'j(K burning issue of Imperialism,
growing out of th Spanish war, involves
t!ie very existence of the republic and
.'.lie destruction of our free institutions.
We regard it as a paramount issue of the
campaign. From the Democratic Plat

A great mistake exists in connection
with the entire railroad problem. It is
to be found in the fact that it is gener
ally assumed that the public have only
minor rights in connection with the
railroads of the country. As a matter
of fact, the rights of the public are para
mount to those of the private owners of
the road. It is far from our purpose to
preach the doctrine of socialism, but we
feel impelled at this time to insist upon
the fact that the railroads are far re
moved from the category of private en
terprises. The mere fact that the money
to build them has been advanced by pri
vate parties, and that the management
has been left in the hands of private par
ties, has blinded many peaplo to the fact
that the roads could not exist were it not
fci .be rights accorded them by the
state. The state gives them their char
ters, does its best to protect them from
undue competition, andj in many other
ways throws the weight of its great in
Cuence in the direction of increasing
In theory a railroad exists not primar
ily because of the private services which
it offers, but because of its
public services. It is an intolerable
view that the state (should ever pormit
the control of its public highways to
pass Into private hands ; for that is ex
actly what it will do if it leaves the
railroads exclusively to private manage
ment. In maintaining Ms highways the
state guarantees equal rights to all its
citizens, and it is right and proper that
its oversight of the railroads should ex
tend just so far as is necessary to pre
vent the railroads from curtailing in the
least the rights of any portion, no mat
ter how small, of its members. U. S.
Jciin Burns, socialist member of par
liament, in the House of Commons
stirred up that body by a remarkable
exposure of official bribery, municipal
rottenness,vice and bestiality in the city
of London. The officials did not attempt

ought to turn itself into a great advertis
ing board. Business men could have
the Chautauqua auditorium, or some
other suitable device and announcement
stamped on the backs of their envelopes.
Small circulars could be prepared for en
closure in all letters! You never get a
letter from Seattle without something
from their Chamoer of Commerce. Ad
vertising pays. And we cannot depend
on Portland to do this for us. She has
her own great interests to forward. "It
lies not in our stars, bnt in ourselvee,"to
shape our fortunes. While we want all
the help we can get from Portland, and
Salem and all Oregon, the central mov
ing force must be here. Rest assured we
stiall find helpers. Portland and all the
state, will be proud to help us when we
help ourselves. The fact that a manu
facturing town,small as Oregon City.has
undertaken what she has, and accom
plished it so well, has already stamped
us as a progressive community. . No
where else are the colleges better known,
nowhere else are the young p eople more
generally thinking of higher education ;
nowhere else are the audiences becom
ing more critical, more capable of weigh
ing and judging the merits of speakers.
The last seven years have been a liberal
education to an entire country hitherto
cut off from schools and universities.
But another matter needs immediate
consideration, that is, handling the
crowds that this expansive mov ement
will bring. The East Side Railway has
done well, and always will be an impor
tant factor. Her interests are ours, but
last year, when Sam Jones was here,
more people were left along the way, un
able to get room on the cars, more peo
ple, I say, than actually reached here.
The line was tasked beyond Its capabili
ties. What then?
Extraordinary fortune has sj placed
us that another great artery of Wavel
touches the borders of our park, the
Southern Pacific Railway. Hitherto it
it has not paid them to run special trains
for our accommodation. Our programs
have not warranted it, but now were
steadily reaching that point. Their In
terests too are ours, and the Southern
Pacific, with four or five Chautauqua as
semblies along its route from Oregon
City to Los Ang6les,all of which leagued
together secuie the same speakers, can
arrange to run a spur directly into our
grounds, just as the East Side Railway
does, and handle the crowds with ease
and exped.tion. It will be necessary for
the Southern Pacific to cunnect itself by
car line with the heart of Portland, for
no great masses of people can, on short
notice, find their way on foot through
heat and dust to the Union depot. Con
nect the Uuion depot with the center
and the circuit is complete. Then it
will pay us and pay them to enter upon
the Greater Chautauqua.

AS TO THE CHAUTAUQUA.
President McKinley is having war to
Lis heart's content in the Philippines,
war which lie invhod, war which has
cost the country more than 4000 good
lives nd $500,OCO,OCO, which is to cost
at least $100,000,000 a year and uncount
ed lives for a long time to come.aud war
for which helthor Mr. McKlnley nor
ongress has yet made adequate provis
ion, notwithstanding its awful cost.
American blood and treasure are being
. poured out in the East uselessly and
therefore hopelessly by reason of the poli
cy to which Mr. McKinley In bis speech
of acceptance pjrsistently sticks.
(An open letter.)
We are all congratulating ourselves on
the successful termination of another
assembly season, all debts paid and
something left in the treasury. But if
this success comes with practically no
advertising, what might we not expect
with liberal advertising? Now is the time
for a forward movement. The expert
mental age is past,the Willamette Valley
Chautauqua Assembly lias demonstrated
its right to exist. It has become the
people's college, the greatest educational
gathering, not only of Orogon but of the
entire Pacific coast.
One of those forward movements must
be a greater platform. We must not
content ourselves with too little. If this
year's program drew 5000 people, what
would a greater program do? We need
to keep posted on the great Eastern
Ghautauqrax, where all the way from
tun to fifty thousand people gather in
a day. And none of them have better
grounds and prospects than we, with
grand old trees and mountain peaks and
rippling waters. We ought to attract
visitors from the whole United States,
for we can claim all scenic Oregon as
part of our attraction.
I happened to glance just now at the
Mountain Park Chautauqua platform of
Maryland. Let us see what they are
having this year. Out of 50 lecturers,
readers and entertainers noted on their
list, I find the names of Rev. Sam P.
Jones, Dr. Russell H, Con well aud Col.
George W, Bain, both of whom we have
tried to get year after year; Dr. P. 8.
Henson, Congressman Dolliver, Rev.
Anna Shaw, Dr. Samuel Phelps Lelund,
Homer B. Sprague, Maud Ballinton
Booth, all In one year, besides many
others perhaps fully as great but whose
names are not quite so familiar, lu one
mouth those men will be lost to us.
Why? Because they are engaged one and
two years ahead. We ought to begin
preparing next year's program now and
advertise from this time on. Dare great
things, do great things, snd begin now.
Another thing. All tho necessary ad
vertising cannot be done by the Chau
tauqua Board alone. The whole town
