Hon George Brownell came last f hurs
day evening gs per advertisement, and
delivered one of hiacalm, dispassionate
talks in Columbia hall to a good-sized
arjd appreciative audience. He told so
many truths that members of otlnjr par
ties were so amazed and pleased that
they were satisfied to let the speech stand
unquestioned, while what few republi
cans that were there looked puzzled to
think that George told so much. Per
sonally, we give Mr Brownell credit for
being several years ahead of his party.
We also give him cred.t for recognizing
the fact that there is such an organiza
tion as the socialist party, and his com
mon sense is too good to allude to us as
"anarchist," in fact, he said we were
good fellows, etc., but lawyers
don't always tell the truth. For in
stance, he alluded to George Ogle two or
three times as the man that was elected
to the legislature but refused to qualify
and assist in organizing the legislature,
as though Mr Ogle was the only ce who
failed to qualify. Why didn't the re
publicans go ahead and organize? I am
told that they were in a largu m ijodiy.
If that is true, it looks like a weak ar
gument now to sav that George Ogle
held up a republican legislature. If th at
is true, Mr Ogle is a bigger man than I
took him to he. He was also very sorry
that his friend, Gilbert Hedges, voted
again t the eight hour bill, but he con
veniently forgot to say that Gilbert
Hedges was the only member ,rom Clack
amas county that voied for the reduction,
of railroad fares from four to three cents
per milo. However, if we must Intve a
republican senator from this countv we
would prefer Mr Brownell, for the sim
ple reason that there is no moss on his
back. He is capable and progressive,
and when other epaakers Come here we
hope the republicans will turnout as well
as the other parties did to hear Mr.
Brownell. We don't want to forget to
say that Mr Brownell gave us some good
points on the question of "the iniative
and referendum," and every man who
considers himself capable of self govern
ment will' vote for it, and if he isn't fit
he shouldn't vote at all. Socialism will
give us the "initiative and referendum"
because its the very first principle of so
cialism, and that is just whose the shoe
pinches the mossbacks.

it 1 say, no, not always It is the
surroundings and influence of others
that breaks up many a home. I be
lieve that ev ry person has a calling of
character-entirely individual. and that if
each could orwould devalop along the line
ot tins calling there would be happiness
and pertect harmony in individual and
and social life instsad of this balng djne
the teudenc. of this raee seems to be to
pattern after others. We want to move,

a great deal more study put into the dis
covering of the secret key of individual
success and joy. A day has in it just
so many hours for each of ut, yet how
differently are onr (biys spent all over
the world, borne people, who should
be sitting quietly to think a little are

ceeding trom within to guide all. At
each moment there is a right thing to
be doing How little are we governed
by that thought, yet it is the true key
to happiness. Many you say have no
real home. That is true. 1 say a happy
home has uplifting influences. Home
means iudviduality. A happy home
means love, untrameled growth upward
along nouie lines. How many homes
have heen torn asunder by some old
diunken beast called a man. aud inlbi'

can be taken by two persons. A man
