Rev. R. Roberts, of Bradford, Eng
land, contends in an article published
in a recent issue of Democracy, that
ethically, the church is a failure. There
is a firm ring in Mr. Roberts' words : "I

amongst us, as evidenced in the growth
J monopolies cornering the very neces
stark of life for mere company profit, is

The president (advancing to the footlights froiri the center of a chorus of cabinet
ministers and senators.) v-

That we looked upon forced annexation as aggression and crime,
"hen we lured them by every assurance to fight by our side,'

"Now we'ie one of the great lying powers. In the days of our youth,
When struggle and weakness were ours, then we dabbled in truth.
But when we grew big like the others, and, strong in our pride,
Gave our word to our weak island brother, the fact is"
Choius (chuckling) "Why the fact Is, we lied I"
"We have joined the great circle of robbers . It was l.ng, lojig'ago

Chorus (laughing) : "The fact is, we lied 1"
"Thus the Tsar swore to Riga and Finland with a lie for an oath,
And then from the coast away to inland he trampled on both.
Thus the nobles who govern Great Britain told lies on the Nile, ;
And cancelled the pledges they had written in falsehood and guile."
"And we, are we less than the British whose word is so gib?

and pulpit have been able todohas been
sufficient to prevent such Bcandals. But
there is a power which can prevent
them. That power is the state." The
firBt step in civic progress, then, accord
ing to Mr. Roberts, is to rehabilitate the
state. We must democratize the state;
we must improve its character, human
ize its methods, and develop the affec
tion and trust of the people towards it.
The Btate has a spiritual function. It
does not exist for the satisfaction of bod
ily and material wanti alone; it must
build up character and intellect. Only
by civilizing and socializing the state
can man himself become truly civilized
Public extravagance is one of the
most effectual means of destroying pub
lic virtue; and public virtue; and pub
lic extravagance in national matters has
resu'ted, in a large measure, from the
fact that the surplus income must be
disposed of by one means or another in
order to remove its exibtence as an ob
jection to high t riffs. Willi due re
spect to meretricious and honorable old
soldiers the question is not out of place,
Does any intelligent man believe that
our annual pension lint would ever have
even been as high as fifty million instead
of a hundred and sixty million dollars,
had it been necessary to raise the money
devoted to that purpose by direct taxa
tion? Would our representatives in con
gress dare to multiply offices, approve
hundreds of uniueritoriom private
claims, enact wasteful river and harbor
bills, and squander the public domain if
the national expenses had to be defrayed
by an overt, irritating tax, taking the
money directly from the citizen's pocket?
Every, muniment of English liberty is
consecrated by the blood of men who
fought against the imposition of an
oiion, unjust tax; while tyranny has
ever thriven under the secrecy and mys
tery of income for government expenses
raised by excises and duties.
OREGON CITY TO BUFFALO.
Scenn and Incidt nt Rnroute to Pan
Leaving Portland Monday evening by
the "twin city" express of the pioneer
transcontinental Hue, e passed through
fertile valleys of the Columbia and Cow
litz to the city of laeoiua, the gram
shipping point of the great Northern Pa
oillo railroad system, and on to Seattle.
The Tacomaites consider Seattle as a
suburb of their c'ty and treat it with
contempt. Still Seattle seems to be get
ting the beet ol it, so lar, It is ttie opin
ion of many that Taooirm and Everett
are the coining sound points, that the
boom of Seattle is about over, and the
reaction will sooa set iu. Everett is be
ing pushed by the Great Northern and
la two or three Bcore oi miles nearer the
ocean. Tacoma has alwavs been the fa
vorite port and terminus of the Northern
1 aeittc. Western Washington Is much
the same as Western Oregon.
Iu Eastern or Central Washington we
find the fertile valley of North Yakima
with its irrigation ditches. East of this
section are the sage btuah plains of
Washington, and for hours we travel
through them. The land is rich enough
if water was available and now affords
fine pasturage early In spring before the
hot winds that burn up vegetation ap
pear. These dry not winds were quite
a contrast to the cold, chilly air ot the
Cascade mountains of a few hours before
where snow was on the ground and pas
sengers amused themselves by snow
balling each other. Jear Pasco we no
ticed a "washout ou the line," with
calico much in evidence.
After going through the lustling city
of Spokane we passed through the mag
niliceut scenery ot the Kocky mountains
into the state of Montana, the state of
miies and cattle. One can guess the
the area of the state when it takes
about 24 hours to pass through on a
train. On the prairies of Montana and
North Dakota thousands of cattle are
fattened. In Western Dakota are the
so-called "bad lands," which also afford
pasturage (or horses, cattle and sheep by
the thousand. In North Dakota and
Minnesota are fields ot wheat, and along
shipping lines enormous elevatcri are
erected to nauuie ttie crops oi goi.ien
grain. In rsortti Dakota is the cele
brated million-acre farm, la a whole
day's travel by train you'll hardly see a
tree, except a few willows or cotton
woods along the water courses. ...
