Charity creates a multitude of sins.
It in both immoral and unfair lo ue
private property in order to alleviate the
horrible evils that result from the insti
tution of private property, Ex.
Tub St Lou's Post-Dispatch siys sig

It is not all lomsntlc glamour and
sunshine in Southern California. Near
Laman la a urn hid a poach orchard.
One ye ir ha puk j 1 inl hauled six car
roads of peaches to Lamsnda Station,
handed them over to a commission firm
and nevi r received a dollar for the whole
lot. Now the C lifurnia fruit growers
are cinched not by the commission men,
but by the railroad tyrants.
The following anecdote is sent to the
London Mail by an officer serving in the
Transvaal, where it has gone the rounds
of the camps: "They tell a story of
Botha and Kitchener meeting about the
terms of peace last. week. At the end
Botha Sid I, 'Well, I must be going'
Kitchener replied, 'No hurry j yon
haven't got to catch a train ' 'But that's
j 1st whit I've got to do,' said Botha,
and two days afterward a train was held
up and looted on the Delagoa line, Hot
yery far from the place of meeting."
In the July North American Review,
Harold Cox, an Englishman, points to
the figures f British commerce for the
paat 47 years as conclusive refutation of
the theory that excass of imports spills
ruin. Since 1854 Great Britain's im
ports have exceeded her exports by the
almost inconcaivalile amount of sixteen
and a half billions of dollars. Yet
within the same period Great Britain's
assessed wealth has much more than
doubled, her national debt has been re
duced one-fourth and the con tints of
her working people's saving' banks have
been multiplied nearly five times.
What promise of success do the pro
fessions nffer the aspiring young man?
Prest. Harper, of Rockefeller's Chicago
University, said in an address to a gradu
ating clasB : "You, who are now enter
ing the world, will find that pov
erty will bi tli a a'nnjeat op
ponent to overcome. Yon, who are
entering life as lawyers, need only to
look at the papers today to find that the
average lawyer does not earn his salt.
Those who will become physicians will
find that their only companion for a few
y ars to come will be the wolf at the door ;
whiie those who go forth to teach need
only to witness the struggles of the
school teachers in this city. The school
board 1b beset with bowls and wails for
an Increase of salaries."
The decisions of the supreme court iu
the insular cases are bewildering. The
new possessions are declared to be parti
of the United States for some pu r poses,
not for others. They are dom estio in
aoino senses, nit in ot'uri. T he line is
drawn at the tariff. The trusts win out.
Whether accidentally or "hot, this great
ciurt always in great rases takes the
side of great capital. It d id this in the
Dred Scott case, which, as Justice
Brown states, was oven u'ed by public
sentiment and war, It tobk the side of
capital in the greenback case. So it did
iu the income tax case, and it is now
supporting by a majority of one the
trusts and the tariff. Birmingham Age

Gladstone Park waa not a financial suc
cess, the program was carried out as ad
vertised and the campers and those tak

well satisfied. The baseball ganns
seemed to help out wonderfully by
bringing the oecasional visitor to the'
grounds. The broader the program t he

ronize it. Those who are not interested
in the Chautauqua idea will not attend
unless they are entertained, and the
management should cater t" them if it
wants their patronage. The election of
H.E. Cross, who has been connectrd
with the association since the beginning,
as secretary, wae a good move and with
a broader program the aesembly will no
doubt be a success in the tuture.
The citizens of Oregon City and Clack
amas county should do all possible to
help along the Portland gentlemen who
are pushing the Lewis & Clark Centen
nial for 1905. This p ogressive spirit
and desire to let the East know that
there is such a region as Oregon is a step
in the right direction and although a
big undertaking it will be of unto.ld bene
fit to Oregon. TheenterUinraent of the
editors in Poitland two years ago has
helped Oregon along wonderfully, and
this world's fair will rap the climax and
bring Oregon and the Nurthwett coast
before the eyes of the world in a light
that can not but benefit every resi
dent of this section. Feople is what w
want and the best w ay is they come and
see for themselves. By judicious adver
tising of this fair we should fill up all
the vacant land on the Pacific coast in
the next few years. ,
"Mjtheb Jones" says: "Some years
ago the silk manufacturers hap
pened to noticj that the daughters of
the Pennsylvania coal miners had noth
ing to do. 'Such laziness must not be
be permitted,' said they, 'and anyway
we feel it our duty to provide a means
for the m iner's family to have a larger
income by g iving his daughters work. '
Silk factories were established in ' the
coal mining district to take advantage of
the cheap girl labor . The natural eco
nomic result followed. The waes ' re
quired by the miner to Bupport his fam
ily were reduced by the amount of the
wages his daughters could earn throw
ing Bilk. His wages fell just that much,
and the result is that the miner and his
family have exactly the same income
today as before his daughter's 1 abor was
given to the eilk factory. It is simply
a duplication of the story of the wages
of the New Erwland cotton mill opera
tives. At first the mm alone wrked,
and his waes were enough to support
the family, but as soon as bis wife and
children went into the mill to help him
increase hia income, his own wages fell
off just that much, bo that today his
wages alone are inefficient to support
the family, and his wife and childien
must work "
Iu the Pennsylvania Journal of Octo
ber 18, 1775. Thomas Paine wrote:
"When I reflect on the horrid cruelties
excerised by Britain in the East Indies
how thousands perished by artificial
famine how religion and every manly
principleof honor and honesty were sac
rificed to luxury and pride when I read
of the wretched natives being blown
away, for no other crime than because,
sickened with the miserable Beetle, they
refused to fight when I reflect on these
and a thousand instances of similar
barbarity, I firmly believe that the Al
mighty, in compassion to mankind, will
curtail the power of Britain."

Says the N. Y. World: "Of the Boer
prisoners expatriated to Bermuda in de

APPEAL TO WOMAN.
The socialift program is so simple so
highly moral and so supremely neces
sary Now a few people control all the
capital of the country. Now a few rich
persons gain a personal benefit from our
social power then, the whole people
would gain the benefits snd advance
ment of our national economic and po
liticul power. Now social injustice
reigns, then equity would be established.
Now our national life perishes, then it
would be awakened to new life .
I want to aisk you women of these
United States one question. Is there so
base a mother in this country who
would choose a slave's life for her child'
renT Is there a mother in her high-born
piivilege so untrue in all this land that
she will not aid in the emancipation of
the working class? Is there a mother
who so mocks and blasphemes the Most
High God that she will not heed the
universal call to save mankind from
crimes bo monstrous as these times do
put upon the race? I think not. I know
the mother's heart; I know the
mother's agony over the dread future of
her children ; I know the bounty of the
universal mother love. Ask and ye shall
receive, seek anil ye - shall find. Do not
think the finding shall come in the un-
seen future. It Is in the everlasting now
that the stream of the noble enthusiasm,
the privilege of the lofty work, the at-j
tainment to impersonal endeavor is its ,
owu reward. Martha Moore-Avery, of
An Exposition Magazine.
The July number qf "The National
Magazine," printed on the Pan Ameri
can Exposition grounds, is superb in
contents and appearance, and is filled
from cover to cover with beautiful illus
trations. The opening article, "Affairs
at Washington," by Joe Mitchell Chap
pie, gives a brilliant resume of the
month's doings at the national capital,
and seveial interesting and profusely il
lustrated articles are devoted to various 1
phases of the exposition. In "American '

Texas Oil Fields" tells of the recent ex
