It is true that the project means
much for Oregon City, and its citizens
cannot subscribe too liberally In an
effort to make the work easy for the
officers of the company; but the city
is subscribing liberally and now the
other sections to be benefitted should
do their share.
. And It is likely that the people along
the way will do all they can. The sue

of this. But a word on the matter of

Modern World Wrong
In Believing Pov
Poverty In Its Second Sense Mis
eryMust Be Eliminated
y FDWARD T. 0BVINE. Prfsor of olel Economy. Columbia University.
fOR nearly fifteen years it has been my duty and my opportu
nity to know something of the misery of the poor in New
York, -and thi. MISERY IS NOT IN, ANY SENSE IN
EVITABLE. Misery, as we say of tul-rcu!rH'w, ia COM
MUNICABLE, CURABLE AND PREVENTABLE.
There are more kinds of misery in New York than Milton ever
dreamed of in his blindness. But the great fact is that this human,
earthly goffering is at once ECONOMIC, ACCIDENTAL and
I woold not overthrow the great social institution of property if
I could. And no revolutionist could overthrow it if they would.
Poverty aa I 'define it is NOT THE ABSENCE OF PROP
ERTY. Temporary even if complete lack of wealth is merely an in
centive to wholesome labor. To be poor in this tense, even to be
penniless or in debt, may be of no disadvantage.
But there ia another kind of poverty, which I have distinguished
by calling it MISERY, which, while it implies lack of wealth, implies
also other grave disadvantages.
I HAVE NO EXPECTATION N0H EVEN DESIRE THAT POVERTY
IN THE PIR9T SENSE WILL BE ABOLISHED, BUT I HAVE A VERY
ARDENT DESIRE THAT MISERY, POVERTY IN THE SECOND SENSE,
SHOULD BE ELIMINATED PROM OUR SOCIAL LIFE, AND I BELIEVE
THAT IT CAN BE.
