TRAPPED THE CHICKENS

East Side Xejri-'
For sometime in a neighborhood at
Portsmouth the residents' -havebeen miss
ing1 their chickens, "which disappeared so
suddenly and 3nysteriousIy that they
could not account tor It, although, they
watched carefully After valuable poul
try had been disappearing1 right along,
the cause was accldehtly discovered by
a small boy. .He -notice last v?eek that
the chickens running loose had gathered
at the iront.yard or a house -where the
gate hod been "left open. He investi
gated and Sound a large "anx ivith one
end propped np. A rope was fastened
to the prop and extended along the waJJc,
into the house, -where It was natural to
suppose somebody bad hold of that hd
the line. Under the box some tempting
chicken feed had been sprinkled on the
ground to entlaer-the iinsusoectlnEr- chick
ens under the box. A T?ull of the ropes
Xrom the house and a une hen or
rooster would be caught. The boy took
in the situation at a glance, scattered
the assembled poultry and told his
mother. Policeman Parker, who lives
at Portsmouth, was informed of'the trap
and he went oyer to the house and read
the riot act The trap has not been
set since the exposure, and chicken roast,
stew and pot-pie have been omitted from
the 1)111 of fare in this particular house.
Funeral at Grctbam.
The funeral 'of A. C. Sweet, an, old
eoldler of the Citfll War and well-known
resident of Gresham, took place from
the church in that place yesterday after
noon. It was underi the auspices of the
21. A. Boss post, G. A. R., of Pleasant
Home, of which he had been a prominent
member. Bey. K. S. Holcroft, of the
MontaviHa Baptist church, conducted the
religious services at the church and de
livered an impressive discourse, speaking
of the fast-disappearing members of the
Grand Army ot the, Republic, "who were
constantly dropping away In different
portions of the country. There were
many handsome floral tributes received
irom the friends of the family. At the
conclusion of the services at the house
the remains were taken to the cemetery
in the rear and laid to rest by comrades
of the G. A. B, and with appropriate
ceremony. Mr. Sweet was quite a fa
miliar flcore ait Gresham and Sandy. He
lived at Sandy for about 15 years and at-
Gresham 5 years. At the campilres, re
unions and memorial days of the G. A.
B. post of Pleasant Home he was al
ways present when able, and -will be
greatly missed by nls comrades on fu1

The handsome new residence of H- G.

cottages for rent, but they are not to

American trade with China shows a

into China from GreatcBritain increased
40,161.115 in l99,and from the Continent
of Europe (Russia excepted) they in
creased from 7,552,099 Haikwan taels in
1895 to 10,172,398 In 1899. 'Thus, While tho

those from Europe show an increase of

foreign imports exceeded that for -1893 by
nearly 2,000,000 taels, being 13,861,995 Halk

missioner at that, point says: "The con

nlan. Note that you say that Lincoln
was using the words Mr. Wood quoted.,
as in reference to Slave vs Free Labor.
Surely with that question debated at that
time for the 50 years (yes more than that)
prior to the time Lincoln was speaking,
Surely he would not liave used the
phrase "not so hackney as most others'-
the question of Slave vs Free Labor was
at that' time a hackney" point,' but" the
point of "placing Capital , on an egual
footing if not above labor in the structure
of government," was at that time not
so generally' perceived But toda'y with
the Sugar and Tobacco Trusts displaying
their power as they did In the P6rto Blco
Tariff Question, surely It has come about.
No honest candid man can read that
part of Lincblns message as recorded
Page 224 of Henry J. Baymonds. Life -of
Lincoln note the punctuation as" there
given, and honestly claim that Lincoln
was not referring to Hired Labor vs Capi-
tal and speaking of such. The phrase
"not so hackney as most others" proves X
that It was not the old question j)t slave
vs free Labor, but a new question labor
vs Capital which we see .in such strong
evidence today. And wltn his usual ,for

" G. D. Bice, in a description of how tele
graph and telephone lines are being
opened up in the new possessions of the
United States In the Philippines, says
that the average Filipino Is a poor me
chanic,' and he makes a sad botch of the
work on wires arid poles. As soon as a
telegraph Instrument of any sort Is put
into his hands, his curiosity is so great
that he must pick it to pieces to see how
it works. But after having Inspected
carefully every nut, screw, pin and con
nection, and removed all the parts, he
will suddenly grow too tired to put the
instrument together again. The Filipino
laborer "will work well enough until near
ly noon, but then he wants to go to sleep
until about 3 o'clock. Tho American en
gineers connected with the lines object
to losing the best part of the' day in this
vray, and they have often to take a good
sized stick to tho native assistants to
ke'ep'them golng"through the Hot part of
the' day,' which they have al-ft ays Veen "in
the habit' of devoting to a siesta.
In'the"earlydays 'of 'the war the Span
lards werev quite adept- in tapping the
government lines. , One young Spaniard
in ' particular would often cut -Into tho
wires' of the military service and thus
secure Important news. This man had
been employed by tho Spanish for years,
and was a competent operator, being fa-
1 miliar with the English language. He
managed his operations so cleverly that
ho has never been caught, but he "has
been checkmated by the use of a code
for all important military telegrams. Mr.
Bice says that the 'native make the
hardest kind of work of cutting a little
wire. He remembers seeing in one lo
cality a dozen poles cut up and thrown
.to tho ground by the rebels n the hope
of cutting the line, "but the wires held
toge'ther, and the linemen went there the
next day "and merely stood up the poles
and tamped them in. When the native
does make up his 'mind to cut the 'wire,
he looks about for a couple of round
stones. Then, ascending the pole with a
stone in each hand, he pounds tho wire
in one place until It flattens out and
becomes, so thin that it breaks. In many
places on the islands where the wires
have been cut it has been discovered that

-Minot, J. Snvage on Bryanism.
The Bev. Dr. Mlnot J. Savage, the lead
ing Unitarian clergyman of New Tork
City, preached on Sunday, October 21
Inst., from his pulpit, a sermon on "Some
of the Moral Issues of tho Campaign," in
which he denounced without qualification
the fallacies and Immorality of Bryanism.
Among otJherthings Dr. Savage said:
There Is one other cffll that. I must speak
of. and that is this constant attempt on the
"part of tho"e who desire by such thlnr? to
climb into power to create Ill-feeling between
tho30 that thoy are accustomed to peak of as
tho "classes" in America. In reality there
are no "classes" In America. Is there a man
In tho wholo bounds of tho United States who
would not resent belnc called a "peasant"?
Is there a man In America anywhere who con
siders his status- fixed Is there anjbofly bom
lntd a seryllo condition or a servllo olass, out
ot which ho-is not perfectly free to emerge,
eien so high as tho President's chair. If ho
has capacity, and character? It is utterly ab
surd, then. It seems to mo, In a country like
this, to create uneasiness and jealousy and
envy In any direction by talking ot tho
"''classes." talkln? of the rich, talking of tho
poor. "The sreat majority of the men In New
York who aro rich 'today 'had poor fathers;
perhaps'the- .majority of them were poor them
selves as boys. And to say that the oppor
tunities for earning" great amounts of money
are oer is entirely unpriced and, utterly un
reasonable. The percentage that accrues to
capital . Is constantly growing less, year by
year; tle perceptase that accrues to labor is
constantly crowing larger year by year. There
never was a tlmo since the world swung In the
blue, when the laboring man's wages were so
high aa they aro today., .Tfyere pevorwas a,
tlmo when everything that he desires to buy
was so cheao as it 1 today. There Is only
one thing that Is higher than it was 50 years
'agi,' and that la rent; and that does not mean
that tou. cannot rent the samo kind of shelter
Hhaf you' did CO year's ago for the samo price;
