OREGON CITY, JUNE 21, 1901.
Thb greatest danger confronting
Chin a iB the "white peril."
H. M. Hyndman, the well known
English socialist, stated twenty years
ago that ''within a generation huge trusts
and combines would completely control
American industry, and would render
the antagonism between capital and la
bor more bitter in the United States
than anywhere else." For this he was
ridiculed, he says, in both this country
and England, But he continues, "My
prophecy has com true."
"When Johnnie Jones and Jennie Smith
First felt young Cup id's dart

Oub familiar friends, Weary Willie
and Daety Roads, number 60,000 in the
United States. At $100 per capita for
their keep, they cost the workers $6,
000,000 per annum. But that larger
army of loafers, the idle rich, cost the
workers a far greater sura. If both
these classes of drones were allowed to
perish by the wealth-producers or work
ers, how much more well being and hap
piness there would be in the human
William Waldorf Astor owns tene
ments in New York in which many
children die for lack of proper nourish
ment and care every year. On his
vast income of several millions he pays
not one penny of taxes and the people
of New York, like a horde of idiots, per
mit him to tuke all that money to Eng
land and spend it there according to the
dictates of his, feeble-minded whims.
He never did an hour's honest work for
the city, and its citizens pay him mil
lions annually for use of houses that
they build. There is a change coming
in this some .day, whether the gentle
men who denounce charity as anarchy
want the change or not. Chicago Ameri
can. At the Chicago trust conference the
following statemont was made by one of
the delegates P. E. Dowe and passed
unchallenged: "I have here a list show
ing advances Jin the prices, due to the
direct and Indirect Inilueuce of trust, of
about 150 commodities; the advances
ranging from 5 to 500 por cent. The
list was obtained by representatives of
the Anti-Trust League applying to man
ufacturers and dealers for information,
and making daily reports, Nearly 600
establishments wire visited. The list is
is sworn to. Ordinary shovels
doubled in wholesale price and snow
shovels advauced 145 per cent; iron, 85
to 130 per cent; coal 50 cents a ton
wholesale; gasoline, 4 cents a gallon;
shoes for the workingmen, 13 to 50 cents
per pair, etc."
The suspicion which the "Standard
Oil Crowd" has brought upon itself of
doing what it could to precipitate the
panic in Wall street on May 0th by
withdrawing on that day the $30,000,000
w hich it had lent on the day previous,
discloses the characteristk'8, says the
U, S. Investor, "that have made the
term 'Standard Oil Crowd such a black
beast in the mind of the average Ameri
. can. This nation thinks it knows pretty
well what is meant by tho expression
Standard Oil methods.' But it may
bo asked if it is not getting a good deal
of just that kind of thing. The Standard
Oil crowd have monopolized the oil in-
.limtrv in a wav which is generally
known, and it has pursued the most
hinh-handed methods in the absorption
of various othor industries. It has
evinced the clearest determination to
moke itself the predominating factor in
iho material affairs of the United States,
and it las substantially accomplished
this result. Now it loots to Borne as u,
through the instrumentality ol the City
bftnV, thta coterie were Dent notomy on
controlling the banking facilities of the
country, but also the very governmeiit
itself. The fact is.'a bank with $130,000,
000 of deposits ie in a pretty good posi
tion to make the government do about
what it wants, whether the government
likes the idea or not."
GEN. CHAFFEE'S OPINION
That blunt American soldier, General
Adna R. Chaffee, shows his courage
and his honest when he says thit, what
ever the original provocation, China
owes the allies nothing at this time.
There is no justice in imposing an in
demnity of more than $300,000,000.
Whatever the Boxers may have done
has been more than wiped out by the
unnecessary "expeditions;" by massa
cres of whole villages conceived in blood
thirst and .loot-greed ; by the murder of
thousands who were innocent of wrong
doing; by the impoverishment of prov
inces, the destruction of cities, the
abandonment of many millions of peo
ple to anarchy.
If the generals of the European pow
ers and the land agents whom they
compel the Chinese to receive as minis
ters to Peking could not prevent these
terrible dimes, wherein are the Chi
nese rulers worse who could not re
strain the Boxers?
01 inaowes the powers nothing. The
balance against her is cancelled, should
be the verdict of The Hague Peace Con
ference. OREGON CITY TO BUFFALO.
Scenes and Incidents Enroute to Fan
To Montana and North Dakota a large
amount of Hood River strawberries
are shipped, and the residents of those
sections say these berries are the best
that can be found in the market. The
grain through these states is looking
well although very backward, many
fields not being up. In Minnesota and
Wisconsin we found the grain further
advanced and some rye nearly ready to
head. The grass and hay are also well
The Noithern Pacific is handling an
au immense amount of freight, some
trains containing as many as 45 cars.
This company has a fine roadbed and
makes good time with its transconti
A day in Minneapolis gave us time to
view a few of the places of interest in
this charmins city, including Lake Har
riet, wnere the people spend their eve
nings rn the lake or listening to the mu
sic and theatricals from a floating the
atre, and the celebrated Minnehaha
falls, that were made famous by Lone-
fellow. But a small amount of water
goes over this fall now and it looks very
insignificant alonside some of the small
creek falls in Oregon. In Minneapolis
are 110 Hour mills, including several very
large mills, one ot wiiicti is the largest
in the woild with a capacity of 10,000
barrels per day. While in this city we
were entertained by the Commercial
Club. That evening we proceeded to
Chicago by the fast train of the "Mil-
waukie" Line, which runs six daily

After spending two days visiting the
elegant parks and boulevards we left for
Uullulo over the " Wabash" Short Line,
with its fine passenger service. While
in Lincoln park we took a ride in the
celebrated ferns wheel, which was
moved there from the world's fair
grounds. From Chicago we' travolled
through the elates of Indiana, Ohio and
Michigan and across the river at De
troit through Ontario, Canada to Ni
agara falls. We were dined and enter
tained at St. Thomas, Out., a pretty
town of 12,000 inhabitants, built on a
plateau, entirely surrounded by low
lands. A. W, Cheney.

A cheap remedy for coughs and colds
Is all riu'Ht, but you want, something that
will relieve and cure the more severe
and dangerous results of throat and lung
troubles. What shall you do? Go to
a warmer and more regular climate?
Yes, if possible; if not possible for you,
then in either case take the only remedy
that has been introduced in all civilized
countries with success in severe throat
and lung troubles, "Boschee's German
Syrup." If not only heals and stimu
lates the tissues to destroys the germ
disease, but allays inflammation, causes
easy expectoration, gives a good night's
rest, and cures the patient. Try one
bottle. Recommended many years by
all druggists in the world. Get Green's

SUCCESS OFi'ME CENTURY.
The Newspaper Given Due Credit
by the Fiyprune Cereal Co.
The old saying that the best article.
properly advertised, will win out in face
of all opposition, has been actually dom-
strated by the rig-prune Uereal (Jo. of
ban Jose, (Jul.
Their cereal coffee ''FU'prune" is
made from choice California tigs anj
prunes and sound, well ripened grain so
blended that all the nutritive properties
of fruit and grain are retained.
The beverage made from Figprune is
a distinct revelation to cereal coffee
drinkers because of its delicate flavor
Mr. A. S. Rix, president of ths com
pany, in a rect-nt interview stated
that the success already attained by
his company was due, first, to the fact
that Figprune was the best cereal cott'ee
ever produced ; second, that the adver
tising mediums used had been selected
for their actual merit only the best pa
pers "being U8ed.
It is pleasing to note that this paper
is one of the mediums selected by the
shrewd president ot the company, and
has aided in biasing a path for other
food product advertisors to follow.
