JJPJ.VS FOLIC r
The nations of the w orld are watching the
policy of Japan, and particularly its atti
tude toward China. While the reports of
these intentions cannot be relied upon in
every particular they aresuthViently consist
ent with one another and with the known
facts regarding the Orient to justify the be
lief that japan has no intention to humil
iate Cliiua, but is actuated by a great ambi
tion of regenerating the Chinese people and
organizing an Asiatic alliance powerlul
enough to defy Europe. The only tiling
which affects the credibility of this theory
of the Japanese policy is the vastness of the
undertaking. There is nothing in the con
ception of the plan beyond ordinary states
manship. The rulers of Japan need not
have been more sagacious than other men
to see that the encroachments of. Russia In
Siberia, France III Cochin Chna,' and. Kr.
land along the Chhe wasr,'lbave threat-
ened an eveetnai European domination in
tbeoeni wnlt-trwdeeirartion of the in
dendence of Japan itself.
jSo long as China remains stagnant, bar-
' barii- and weak, so long does Japan stand
without a natural ally against possible Kuro
pean aggres.-ion. It is clearly to her inter
est, therefore, to rouse the Chinese people
to a sutlicient degree of civilization to be
able to resist a military power in case of a I
war with some great European nation, i
These considerations lead her statesmen to i
seek a position from which they can exert a
reforming influence on the Chinese Knipire.
They also account for the extremely mod-!
erate terms granted to the conquered coun
try. It is not unlikely, moreover, that thev
account lor the vigorof the Russian protect.
A reformed China taught how to use the
weapons of civilized war would be a serious
menace to Russian dominion in Kastern
Siberia. It would mean Asia for the Asiut
ics and would so redress the balance of
power in the world that international poli
tics in the future would be altogether differ
ent Irum what it has been in the past.
Interkst is growing throughout the state
in the great Cliatitaixjua assembly that will
convene at Gladstone Park in July. The
governors of Idaho and Oregon will tie
in attendance, and it is probable that the
governors of California, Washington and
Montana will alio be induced to attend.

adjacent towns have been
wrestling with the freight problem. The
bulk of the freight for Eugene has beeu
transferred at Corvallis from river boats
and the O. P. railroad, and hauled from
there by freight teams. According to the
Eugene Ciuard the competition in freight
rates will now become more interesting:
"The Transportation Company formed at
Fairmoutit have tiled their articles of incor
poration with the secretary of state with a
capital stock of J12, says the Journal.
The incorporators are H. A. Ilarr, (leorge
Miller and I.. I.. Schell. The object of the
company is to put in a transportation line
between Fairmount anil Corvallis; the same
to be run for the purpose of hauling freight
from Corvallis to points up the valley with
Fairmount as headquarters. The company
will begin operations in about a mouth and
the train will consist of one traction engine
and from six to twelve heavy freight wag
ons; the engine to be MMiorse power ami
travel in the public roads. This company
will employ four men at the start and il
business is good they will increase this num
ber. The company claim they will lessen
freight rates and will form an opposition to
the Southern Pacific railroad company." 1
The advantage of devoting one's talents
to his ow n particular line of work is to be
coiumexiled, and the following from the
Astoria Iiudiret exemplifies that fact forci
bly: The Budget believes in churches. It
believes in them being well sustained and
encouraged. Il believes that society would
lie iiiiii h more demoralized without the
churches and the ministers of the gospel,
j It has taith in a large majority of the men
j who preach. Thev are conscientious and
are battling for the good of mankind. Their
I hearts are in their work; but the liudget
i thinks the judgment of the average minis
ter is very poor. He has a very poor idea
of what the people want and how to bring
them to his way of thinking. As a usual
thing he, like the average editor, over esti-
' mates his ability and his influence, He is
too general. He gets too far away from his
'church. He forces his religious ideas upon
j the people at the wrong time and Place.
I The Budget believes the place to preach re
j ligion and for religious worship is in the
! churches and not on the streets; not in tem
perance halls and at entertainments. That
is not what people go therefor. If they
j want to hear sermons they will go to
church. II thev do not thev will go some

Okekor City wants more smull manufac
tories. A number of small factories con
ducted on a safe financial basis, add im
mensely to the wealth of a city, and they
develnpe and grow. This city has a num
ber of these, as w ell as extensive establish
ments; but there is room for more. The
advantage of cheap locations and electric
power cannot lie overestimated. And to this
can be added the conveniences of ready
transportation to the markets ol every sec
tion. It is a mistake that Immense manu
facturing establishments alone do every
thing lor a town. Their great value cannot
be overestimated, hut they cannot always
be secured when desired, and the opportun
ity presents itself oftentimes to secure small
factories, that flourish, and the more of
them the better.

The rule has been to give franchises to
street railroail companies without consider
ation. A company that gets such a fran
chise for nothing sells it to another com
pany. The latter company, having bought
ita franchise, owes nothing to the city. It
proceeds to fix rates to emtble it to pay
interest on the money it paid the original
company for its franchise.
