An Appeal to Populists.
A bv Btematic effort U being made to
"work" the populists in the interest of
republican machine in the coming cam
paign, it is actually ludicrous to see
the deep regard and tender solicitude
, for the populists, expressed by the same
republicans, who, a few short years ago,
could nna no words ol contempt iitiong
enough for he "Coxevites" and who
carried a coffin representing "Populism''
through the streets of Oregon
City, after their victory in 1894 and
went through a mock burial service; re
peating the same performance after the
November election of"189G, despite the
tact tuat the 1 opulinU, after all the
abuse and ridicule heaped upon them
had i-p.l tjieir opponents a magnnnimoiiB
exan.ple by al silutely refusing to make
any public demonstration after the
sweeping victory in June. But. now
comliiions lmve changed. The Populist
8tate committee very unwisely, as many
of us believe, disbanded the party and
this yery fact will be used by the ma
chine heelers to make it appear that
there is an effort being made to turn the
populists bodily over to the democratic
"The democrats have swallowed you"
will be thrown at populists in allopathic
doses during the next fr w months This
is nonsense and no thinking man should
be influenced thereby. No party can
swallow ut if we do not desire to do the
Jonah act; No doubt the democrats
would welcome such an addition to their
ranks; bo would the socialists or prohi
bitionists; so would so immaculate an
organization as the Brownell party in
this county, but it is for us, not for
them frisay if we shall be "swallowed."
If ttie populist party is dead even that
is no excuse for its members to go over
to their worst enemy. There are sev
eral honorable causes of action open to
us. If we think that Hrvan democracy
is radical enough for ub and believe that
the element represented bv Bryan, Alt
geld and Tillman wi'l control the future
fiolicv of the pirtv, as against, the Oleve-Hnd-Gorman
wing, then the way is open
for us to voluntarily ally ourselves with
If on the other hand we have no faith
in the eflicacy i f the measures proposed
by the Bryan element or feel sore that
the party is to be Ulevelandized, w can,
if we can agree to their somewhat exact
ing demands, join the siHtialists; or we
might reorganize t.pu populist parly or
ownize 1 nig ihe lines of the new
"Public Ownership Party," which
headed by Lee Meriwether made such a
splendid showing in ti e St. Louis niuniC'
ipal elections. While something could
be said in favor of each of these plans
there is another slternative and it is not
the one desired by the Brownell nia
chine.Ii'n not necessarythat we belong to
miy party? Would a thousand or so in
dependent voters be a bad thing for the
county. If no party suitB us we need
not, out of sheer pervlsity rush to the
most corrupt one of the lot. In the pro
poBed independent movement e will
meet with the major portion of the dem
ocrats and wiih many of the best and
ablest of the rank and file of the repub
licans; meet them not as democrats and
republicans but as independent citizens
Who desire to promote the general wel
fare of the county and who object to the
boss rule which puts up nominations as
so much merchandise on the auction
block and promises places on the ticket
two years in advance and occasionally
even deliver the goods. Knowing that
these corrupt methods have disgusted
and alienated many of the republican
voters, the machine is endeavoring to
recoup from the ranks .of the democrats
and populists. The republican county
plitform with it populistic and social
istic planks is a direct bid for Popu.ist
support. But who is gullible enough to
believe that the republican machine is
sincere for insiance in the demand for
n income tax? Through some over
eight an endorsement of Mitchell's vole
for the ship-subsidy bill was omitted.
This is to be regretted for it would have
made splendid reading in connection
with the anti-trust plank. Another
omission was tlieftilure to endorse ei
ther UhriHtian Science or the Keely
cure. It is to be hoped that all these
little defects will be corrected by the
next election and that the machine plat
form can then be "expanded" to include
every plank of every platform ever pro
mulgated by any party. But seriously,
all the buncombe should deceive no one.
The republican party under the pres
ent owners! ip has had charge of this
county for years; wj know the result; if
we like it, well and good, if not, we know
how to rid ourselves of the incubus.
Thereare half adozen ways to log and but
one way to win; that is through an in
dependent ticket, supported by all who
desire a belter county government.
Ant don't forget to begin at the primar
ies ou Saturday, Apr. 5th.
Molalla, Or. Gko.Ooi.e.
Having been se ected by the Socialist
party of this county as one of its nominees
for representative, it becomes my duty
to discuss with you, the p lluical ques
tions that so earnestly concern every
citizen in the republic. I recognize the
dilliculty of trying to persuade men to
investigate new changes in government,
and to notice the effect of hu di change
upon themselves. I teali.e that in time
of political excitement, man is prone to
he guided by his passions instead of his
reason. But, nevertheless, we should
not be deterred from doing our duty, nor
be disappointed should we (ail to con
vince our fellowmau. It is better to
have worked lor the cause ot humanity
and failed, than not to have worked at
all. Thereare times of deep concern.
One class of men and women, struggling
on iu hopeless toil, surrounded by cir
cumstances that emit no ray of hapoi
ness and another class of men and wom
en, indulging In the delights ot life, and
reaping all the benefits of human soci
ety. The one class are the laboring
ueu and women everywhere, the other
class are the millionaire capitalists.
You may arrange w rd In ways to
t ruth appear in different uniforms, but
arrange as you may, there are only two
classes ot people on'the face of the earth.
Those who raise the food (or the human
race, thoee who make the clothing and
those build the horaej are the essential
Biemiers of the one class, and those who
do nothing but lav plans to ensnare their
fellowman into slavery, are the princi-
lien of the other. The content!
is now on. and it rests with every citizen
in every land whether laboring men and
women shall have their natural rights,
or whether the men and women who
toil not shall continue to hold tl em
In bondage. This is the struggle be
tween socialism and imperialism.
Either the people who produce every
thing, must take the government into
their owu hands and govern themselves
to their own advantage, or the "trusts"
will take the governments and use them
for their benefit. I regret that it is im
possible for me to canvass our county
and talk to the people directly, but be
ing engaged to teach a term of school, it
is my duty to serve those who have en
gaged. I shall at some future ti e dis
cuss the merits of our county platform
and also the orinciples of proportional
IP Ren's Referendum Joy.
Ever since the delegates to the repub
lican convention begun to arrive in Port
land last week Hon. W. 8. U'Ren has
been giving all his time to interviewing
the delegates ttnd getting friends of the
initiative and referendum to talk to
them and show good reasons why the
conveniiou should put a plank in the
platform eudorsing the constitutional
amendment for di.ect legislation. The
plank whs written by Hon. Geo. H. Wil
liams and offered in Ihe convention by
him After that Mr. U'R n and Senator
Brownell devoted their entiie time and
attention to the committee on platform
and succeeded in getting a unanimously
tavoraDte report, and the plank in the
platform reads: "Weaie in favor of the
proposed amendment to the state consti
tution providing for the initiative and re
ferendum, and recommends its adoption
by the people of the state."
Mr. U Ken says he has the asturance
of many leading democrats that
the democratic state conven
tion will also endorse the amendment,
and he believes it will be adof ted by the
people Dy a large majority in June. He
has worked a lung time for this reform,
and in times past some of his enemies
have said he is not sincere, but his faith
ful, persistent and never ceasing work
for this reform, and above all, his suc
cess up to this time in getting the favor
able consideration of all classes and all
parties, and their public endorsement
must convince even his worst enemy
that he has been in earnest from the
start. This endorsement bv the repub
licans has put new life into all the
friends of this great measure, and up to
date there seems to be no open opposi
tion. l it, is lost it will be clearly be-
CMtiscMthe people do not want power to
make the law even in important cases.

The churches were crowded with ap
preciative auditors last Sunday, and the
Easter services were unusually im
pressive. The decorations were tasty,
and artistically arranged. A number of
elegant spring hats were in evidence,
and there were a few elaborate cos
tumes. AT THE PRE8BYTERIAN CHURCH.
The Presbyterians do not make elabo
rate preparations for the Easter festival,
as do some of the other churches, but
there was a large attendance, and the
sermons were fittingly appropriate to
the resurrection event. The choir did
excellent work in the evening, and in
the anthem, "I am the Resurresction,"
Chester Muir acquitted himself very
creditably in the bass solo.
The decorations at the Congregational
church were aided by he addition of
Bix dozen call a lillies, the gift of Mrs.
R. M. Sprague, of Sant Cruz, Calif.
The morning sermon was oi especial in
terest The praise servic in the even
ing was under the direction of Mrs.
F. F. White, the leader of the choir.
Herbert BeBtcrw, of Portland, for many
years a member of the choir here, sung
several solos. Miss Mary Conyers, a
new member of the choir, sung in a
pleasing manner Shelley's "Resurrec
tion." A vervcreditable Easter offering
for the benefit of the choir, was raised.
The decorations were up to the stand
ard, and the pastor preached an appro
priate Easter sermon. .The Sunday
school program in the evening was of
unusual interest There were eongs
and anthems by the choir, class BongB,
and a solo by Mrs. R. C. Ganong.
Other numbers were a duet by Perrin
Latoorette and Cliffoid King, a recita
tion by Robbie vard, Mrs. Williams'
story recitation bv Gera'.dine McOown,
and the address by the past ir, Rev.
J. H. Btaven. .

Rev. W. S. Grim, the pastor,
preached a special sermon in the morn
ing, and an excelled, Suuday-.-chool I
program was presented in the evening, !
and the choir sung several iiHiiiljers,
and Miss Imogen H.irding snii th
"Resurrection." Among ihe numbers
on the interesting program were recita
tions by Maisie Scott and Mrs. E. J.
Maple, and a number of sacred soiig se
The usual impressive several Easter
Sunday services were conducted at St.
Paul's Episcopal church bv the rector,
Rev. P. K, Hammond. The feature of
the decorations were iv and calla lilies,
the latter the gift of Mra. Norman R.
Lang. The flowers were grown in Cali
fornia. The music was in charge of Virs.
J. P Keating, and excellent ruusiotl
programs were rendered, including fes
tival chants, etc. Miss Miry Conyers
sung thb offertory solo, "The Resurrec
tion." The offering amounted to $125,
a gratifying Bum.
St. John's Catholic church not only
observed the preceding Holy week, but
Easter services were specially impress

lic church are of special significance,
and deeply impressive. There was a
large attendauce of the members of the

Heat and Cold Raise and Lower ttie
The engineer of the Brooklyn bridge
states that the variation in the height of
the-center of that structure in summer
and winter is three feet. 1 his is due to
the expansion of the wirea by heat and
their contraction by eold.
The same law of expansion and con
traction, influencing the sensitive wires
of the piano, is the chief cause of that in
strument getting out of tune
In the construction of the Kimball
piano these conditions have received the
careful attentiou and judgment of ex
nerts trained in Eurooe and America.
The result is an instrument that wiil pre-
sent the greatest resistance to the vari-
ation of tension caused by changes of
temperature. Consequently the piano

ingenuity can devise in the Kimball
The grand piauo purchased of the
Kimball company by Mme. Eames in
1805 for Paris home is an illustration.
The instrument made the long journey
from Chicago to that city and arrived in
perfect tune. Appreciating this remark
able fact, Mme. tames concluded a
recent letter to the tirm directing the
shipment of a second piano for her castle
at Vallombrosa, Italy. "It also has the
i marvelous quality of keeping in tune."
