What the farmers' alliance platform,
if the parly should noii.inate a presiden

third party movement undoubtedly ex
ists in the farmers' alliance. If success

the nnil liniint of the iiieiuiiiteg they indi

had for farmer would soon he known.
No, I do not think communism ia at the
bottom of the farmers' movement. The
percentage of communist in thi country
g very small. A capital i alwaya anx
iously watching the condition and gov
ernment of the country, the success of
any movement which would render un
sound legislation probable, would greatly
disturb the finance of the country, and
that, of course, would reach every branch
of labor and business.

Wasiiinotom, April 6. Mr. Edward
0. Leechj director of the mint, will
probably issue a circular tomorrow to
artists for new design for subsidiary
coins. The general feature of the pres
ent coins will lie preserved to a consider
able extent. The coin to be changed
are the silver dollar, the half dollar,
(lie quarter, dollar and the dime. These
changes are to be made onder the act
passed at the last session of congress,
which appropriated 150,000 for the
puraje and is available Jul v 1. Direc
tor lech think that from $2,000,000 to
3,OUO,000 of the asset of f2J.OOO,000 in
the treasury can be recoined with this
appropriation. The gold coin are satis
factory, and will not he changed. The
mandatory coinage of the eilver dollar
ceases on July 1. After that the trade-
dollar bullion in the treasury will be re
joined into ailver dollars. The designs.
after being selected, will not be changed
for twenty-live year. The circular will
call for the submission of the new de
sign by June 1.

JUrnltude 0f the Electric Llgutlur
Probably very few of the citizens of Or
egon City have much idea of the magni
tude of the electric lighting business . A
piper read at the last meeting of the
National Electric Light Association con
tains the following:
America stands as the exponent of thia
science, with 300,000 arc and 4,000,000
incandescent lamps flashing like mete
ors across the continent. Thus has sci
ence aided nature in lighting up the
streets and highways of our native land,
from the shores of the Atlantic, across
the snowy peaksof the Rocky mountains
to the golden shores of the Pacific. This
vast industry, requiring an army of over
300,000 men and an investment of oOO,
000,000, ia the result of American genius
and enterprise. Truly we may well
congratulate ourselves that we are here
today as the representatives of thia sci
ence and industry, which is revolution
izing the world.
The author of the paper has this to
say in regard to municipalities obtaining
control of electric lighting plants :
This science, fraught with so much
good for mankind, which has put mil
lions of money into circulation and fur
nished employment to thousands of la
boring men and others, is now menaced
by men, who, boasting as economists,
desire to U9e this power for political and
other purposes, as well as for their own
aggrandisement, regardless of the inter
ests of the masses or the public welfare.
The plain English of this movement is
municipal control of electric lighting
Who are the great apostles of munici
pal ownership of electric lighting plants,
claiming that municipalities can furnish
light cheaper than private corporations!
Mostly visionary, theoretical dreamers.
Not one has had a single day's practical
experience in the electric lighting busi-

A "fakir" is in the city now canvass

Then a little later, a second edition of
the "fakir" outfit will come along and
try to convince people who never heard
of it that they subscribed for the book,
and if they are subscribers, get from $3
to $5 for it. It is a notorious "fake"
