THE WORLD'8 COMING POWER,
Everybody hereabouts has gone pewer
mad, and no wonder, for each day as it
passes, but adds o the certainty that wealth
far greater than any to be wrested from the J
Klondue s fron-n sands is to be got out of
' J'wgara's green waters by those who have
dared to harness the world's greatest cata
ract. Tbe most marvelous dream of the age
a beii g resliied in the quiet-looking gray
tone power-house that stands a mile or
two above (lie fall. Three enormous dyna
mo, each weighing many tons and whirl
ing at th rate of &H revolutions minute,
re constantly transforming water-power
equal to that or 15.050 horses

1i Only A beginning. On both titles of
the river men are steadily at work in tbe
sunlight by day and in tbe mystic current'
glare by night making ready for tbe pro
duction of nearly forty-fold more power.
By tomorrow so to speak, enough fore will
be got out of the rushing water to tarn every
wheel In every factory in every city of the
Empire state, including tbe Greater New
' 3Tork itself. When tbe work now in pro
jrrees is done, the total output will be as fol

country. But the Enterprise will stand
corrected, on the word of those participat
ing, that the meeting spoken of as being
held ouiuudsy was for the purpose of or
ganising a lodge of Sont of Hermann, a Ger
man benevolent order, and not for oltlical
puro!es. While it is shown that this par
ticular meeting had no connection with
iHilltios, yet the Knterprise has definite
knowleege that such a movement has been
oeen unaer way in mis county lor some
past, but this will probably be the last of
it, for so many Germans, as well as Ameri
cans, have censured this pernicious effort
to make of the German vote a cat' paw to
pull someone a political chestnuts out of
the fire, that the instigator of ii will give it
up as a dangerous expedient.
It Is pitiful to witness th childish jeal
ousy of an alleged Oregon City editor, who
with the assistance ol a nondescript, bicycle
biped, ba for the past year been endeavor
ing to get out a paper, which so far has
gained but an uncertain circulation and a
doubtful reputation, at the success of the
other city papers, who do not have to resort
to "holler plate" matter to till up their local
pages and to rely on reprint and ready-made
editorial sent out by the republican
national press bureau, to supply their edi
torial columns. If these would be editors
bad a little "softening of the brain" their
paper might be more readable and they
would cease to be the laughing stock of the
town and disgrace to the vocation they
are attempting to follow. The Enterprise
Miss Helen Kelleher, a dltrilnt'iilitiit'd
elocutionist and dramatic render of Cali
fornia, will describe the gloried ami won
ders of the Uolden state in a lecture and
stereopticon exhibition at tho HuplM
church next Monday evening, November
1st. Her lecture will lie. illuatrated bv

under the moot powerful lime-light stor

personal visit this affords the beet mentis
of becoming acquainted' with the gran

lecture is under the auspices of the Chris

Ol Miss Kelloher't lecture in Portland
the Oregonlan says: Iu a delightful
pleasant way, Miss Helen Kelleher, of
San Francisco, a native daughter of the
GolJen state, entertained an appreciative
audience gathered in the auditorium of
the Grace Methodist Eoiseonal church
last evening. The lecture waaon "Semi
tropic California," beautifully illustrated
w ith a profusion of handsome etereopti
con views, some so realistic in present
ment as to almost startle the beholder.

A high tariff and a treasury deficit can
never exist together. The United Stales
treasury department had only a deficit of a
little over f-1,000,000 to contend wilh for the
second month that the Dingley bill was In
operation, while the deficit for the second
month the Wilson bill was in effect the
deficit amounted to over $13,0i 0,000
SPIRIT OP THE PRESS.
Of the spasmodic attempts that a few
alleged politians are trying to make a belittle
to standing of Congressman Tongue in bis
district and prevenit his re-nomination next
spring, the McMinnville Transcript has tbe
following to say: "And now the work is
being passed along the line by the "powers
that (want to) be" that Congressman Ton
gue must take a back seat at the next nom
inating convention to give place for Mr.
Geer. In fact some of the said "p. t. (w. t.)
b." go so far as to assert that If they can't
have (beir way they propose to "bust things
wide open." Well, that is really too bad;
but it is only in keeping with that particular
class of politicians, Just what Mr. Tongue
has done or what he has not done ia not
fully explained. But the people are waking
up to tbe situation of affairs."
Were tbe penalty made as severe as tbe
crime deserves, train wrecking and hold-ups
would be far less frequent than Ibey now
are. On this subject the Portland Welcome
baa the following sensible observations to
make "Judge Sears did the community a
valuable service and set a good precedent
when he sentenced the would-be train rob
bers to over thirty years' imprisonment.
Holding np train and street-cars is an in
dustry that is in urgent need of repression,
and a few each sentences will have a
tendency to induce the enterprising gentry
who contemplate engaging in this business
to turn their attention in some more prosaic
and legitimate direction."
Nothing more to the point on tbecaanged
conditions of the country, as between those
prevailing dining Cleveland's administra
tion and now under M Kinley' adminis
tration, has appear! in the press, than the
following truism written by the Gales Spur
correspondent for tbe Forest Grove
Hatchet; "The bunting season Is now
open and sportsmen are taking advantage
of It, but there have been hunting seasons
Over which Oregon had no jurisdiction
During Cleveland's administration tbe
president bunted ducks, working men
bunted Jobs and money bunted it bole.
Now the ei president is hunting calamities,
the jobs are hunting tbe working men and
money is hunting investment."
Tbe free silver papers of Oregon can no
more withstand the Corbett "influence,"
than could the populist legislators, who
went into the hold up of last winter, as the
following from the Capital Journal proves:
"We print in this issue the ideas of Hon
H. W. Corbett, of Portland on tbe question
of currency reform and finance. He is a
student of the subject, a man of great busi
ness experience and practical knowledge of
banking. His theory and suggestions are
all on the basis of the tingle gold standard
Mr. Corbett is possibly the ablest and clear
est thinker along tbe line iu the West.
While many will not agree with him, there
is none can deny his ability, hi sincerity
and consistency. We commend bis utter
ance to our readers as the most advanced
statement of the gold standard view. It is
worthy ol preservation.
That there will be a tremendous rush into
the Yukon gold held nextspring is doubted
by no one. Of the number of persons who
will go to make up this army of gold seek
ers, the Victoria Colonist gives the follow
ing as its estimate: Tbos. Cook & Bon, the
world-famous excursion agents, say that
100,000 is a conservative estimate of tbe
number of people who leave Great lirillan
alone for the Yukon next season. It is not
unreasonable to suppose that as many peo
ple at least will go from
the United States. Most persons
will consider these figures as very conserva
tive. They appear to be so, when we reflect
that in eight months hulf a million people
left tbe United Kingdom and the continent
for Johannesburg. If we put tbe number
of possible intending immigrants into the
Yukon at 200,000 we have a host that will
choke every avenue of transportation, and
make an unprecedented demand upon the
supply of food products. It is very proba
ble that a large proortion of tbese people
will not come to British Columbia, buteven
If only half of tbem do, we will have a
problem of tremendous magnitude to deal
with. The rush will begin early in the new
year, will last all summer, and in the fall
there will be the return rush.
Tbe real meaning of these figures is not
clear until it is remembered tbat Lowell
Mass., famous the world over as a manu
facturing town came into being because it
was possible to develop 11,145 horsepower
from tbe waterfalls within its bounds; that
the total water horsepower available at
Minneapolis, renowned wherever men eat
bread because of its gigantic flouring mills,
is only 25,000; tbat Buffalo, now a city of
Dearly 400,000 inhabitants, ranking fifth or
sixth among the cities of the United States,
uses less than 60,000 horsepower, and all
the manufactories In New York state, in
cluding those of the great aggregation of
cities at tbe mouth of the Hudson, are
operated by less than 550,000 borseiower.
In otber words there are now planned
enough hydraulic and electric installations
at Niagara Falls to furnish power for a city
so vast iu extent that Greater New York,
Paris and Chicago would be only villages in
comparison. Some tbere be who predict
tbat such a city, greater than any the world
ba yet seen, will grow up in the immediate
vicinity of the cataract. Buflalo Express.
The past fifty years has been an era of
steam power, hut now tbe world is entering
on an era of water-power, tbe development
of which has been made possible by the
application of electricity, and great manu
facturing centers are springing np on every
hand revolutionizing tbe old industrial
centers of the country. While Niagara
Falls is snrely destined to be the industrial
center of the East, Oregon City will as
snrely be tbe manufacturing center ol the
Pacific coast. Having a water-power rated
by the United States engineers at 56,000
horse-power, which is five times greater
than that of Lowell, New England's great
manufacturing city, and more than double
that of Minneapolis, the greatest milling
center in the world, it can be readily seen
what are the possibilities in store for Oregon
City. And when it is remembered that for
over eight months out of the year the falls
of the Willamette are capable of furnishing
over 100,000 horse-power, with no interfer
ence from frost to retard the flow of water
as at Lowell, Minneapolis and other water
powers within the cold belt.
Oregon City will, before our people are
fairly aware of it, bave a population of
100.000 and with Portland, as its big
brother, will have 1,000,000 people within
their limits, before the young men of today
are gray with age.
Thi Enterprise lias beeu taken to task
for its criticism, given in the edition of last
week, upon the movement in this county
to organize the German voters into a politi-
cal body. Tbe Enterprise has no apology
to make for what it said on this subject,
for it, with every fair-minded American,
whatever his place of birth may have
been, holds that racial prejudices should
not be brought into tbe politics of this
with which Miss kelleher delivered it
mane it doubly attractive and appreciable.
In the capacity of a well- informed guide,
she accompanied her interested audience
Iroiu Portland to the extreme southern
portion ol California, over the Southern
Pacific lines, with side trips to the
Yoseuiite yalley, Lake Tahoe and other
weil-known resorts. Tl ere were glimpses
of rugged mountain scenery found in the
Siskiyou and Cascade ranges, and in
striking contrast were a series of beauti
ful viewsof the famous citius belt and
the almost tropical landscapes of Santa
Barbara, Pel Monte and Los Angeles.
The enjoyable trip was made in less than
two boure, and when Yuma was reached
the delighted audience bidden good night,
every one present went home well pleased
with the instructive entertainment.
