Hollenberg & Cady. A GREAT MEETING. By a Great Man Senator La Follette of Wisconsin in Corvallis. One of the most remarkable meetings ever held in Corvallis, occurred Tuesday night. It was a lecture, and Senator LaFollette was the lecturer. It was remarkable from several standpoints. No such a philippic against centralized wealth and the domineering meth od of the over-rich was ever deliv ered in Corvallis. A more absorb ing word paintirg of the doings of trusts was ever pictured here. A more interesting speaker never stood on tbe Opera House platform. A man whose utterances bore more of tbe earmarks of honesty and sin cerity never hurled more powerful sentences at a Corvallis audience. A big audience never sat more pa tiently and more interestedly and listened to a speaker for so long a period. Senator LaFollette spoke for three mortal Hours, rle was late in ar rival, and the audience had waited for him nearly an hour when he began. In all the people occupied their seats nearly four hours. It was a discusson of problems of government, and the fact that an audience sat so long and listened with such consuming interest, tells the story of the power of the speak er. It was a cold audience in the beginning, but long before the close it was enthusiastic. The . telling points in the address were loudly applauded. In the closing moments everybody was full of good humor and enthusiastic. More than all, everybody was the warm admirer and deep sympathizer with Senator LaFollette. Three hours covers a wide range when the speaker talks as fast as does this man from Wiscoasm. What he said couldn't even be hinted at here. His address would cover two or three pages in fine type in a metropolitan daily. It would take an ordinary reader more than half a day to read it aloud. But there wasn't a minute of it, nor a sentence in it that was not full oi power and moment. He told of the government in the be ginning when corruption was un known. Seventy-seven years ago, DeToqueville, the French philso pher, wrote of the American gov ernment after a long study of it in this country, "I have not heard of a single case of corruption in' gov ernmental affairs." ' That was a description of affairs at Washington in 1830. Corruption was unknown. Nineteen years ago, James Bryce in a similar book, wrote that the corporations are cprrnpting the government, and that their influ ence on the dishonest congressmen corrupted the whole, lump so far as results are : concerned! With such the trend, what is the condi tion of affairs today, when corpor ation influences are so vastly mag nified? 'In the past 30 years there have been but two congresses that the railroads did not control,'' ex claimed the speaker. One was in 1 887, when the inter-state commerce bill was passed after it had failed in 13 sessions, and the other was in 1906, when the rate bill was pass ed. 'Even the latter was not be yond the pale of railroad influences because the rate bill is ineffective, said Mr. LaFollette because it does not give tbe commission power to YOU DROP IN AND SEE what we have in the line of Second Hend Goods. If you will do so. you may find just what you want und what you need. Beside, you can save some money, not only in second hand goods, but in NEW Goods as well. J ascertain the value of railroad prop erties for the purpose of fixing rates Senator LaFollette declared h t representative government is almost dead in this country. In the be ginning.the individual's vote count ed for something, in that the re presentative sent to Washington carried out the wishes of constitu ents. They do it no longer, because after they get to Washington enough of them are found for the corporations to control them and congress, and consequently control legislation. He rscited the steps by which corporations have devel oped, first into competing compan ies, but now into merged trusts in which every corporation in an in dustry is controlled by two or three m.n. The cutput of industry is actually controlled. The iron of the country is bodily controlledby the steel corporation. It has pow er to fix thj price, and it ' fixeit and requires the consumer to pay tbat price. It put $400,oob,0o6 in to its business, and in six short years earned enough toco able is capital. With but 400 millions in, the beginning, it capitalized at 1,400 millions and paid big divi dends on that sum, It is robbery of the people, declared the speaker, pure and simple. The same condi tions are true of coal. The same of oil, of sugar, of all the necessar ies of life in fact, and the peopb of the country are in industrial servi tude. They have to pay what the trusts ask.. They cannot avoid it for the trusts control the product. From the control of these products the trusts have passed to the con trol of legislation; and until the peo ple throw off the condition their progress is slow and painful to what it would be were everbody given equal rights before the law. A most significant feature of the address was the reading beiore the audience of the names of senators who voted to defeat desirable amendments to the rate bill. ; One of these was by La Follette and it gave the commission power to as certain values of railroar s for tbe purpose of gving rates, Forty sen ators voted against it, and 27 for it. The vote he said is costing the people of the country nearly $500,- 000,000 a year in the higher rail road rates that have to be paid be cause the commission cannot con trol. Among -those who voted against the amendment was Senator Fulton of Oregon. When his name was read, several grcans were utter ed in various parts of, the house, a noticeable murmur running through the entire audience. Senator Gear in was among the 27 who voted for the amendment, and when his name was read the reading was interrupted by an enthusiastic burst of applause. Another amend ment that Senator La Follette of fered the bill was one to prevent a federal judge from sitting in the trial of a railroad case wherein the defendant owned, stock in the de fended railroad. "It was an amend ment," exclaimed the speaker, "that simply provided that a judge couldn't sit in the trial of his own case, and one that I thought would go through of its own weight with all voting for it, but; strangely enough the same 40 votes were thrown against it. The reading of the names on this vote disclosed the name of Senator Fulton among those who voted it down, " and that of Senator Gearin among those who voted for it. Attention Farmers!
