BcnnANK Potatoes "Rcx Out." There
Is a very general complaint from con
sumers of potatoes, which Includes nearly
everybody, that really choice potatoes are
scarce this Winter. The farmers appear
to have let the Burbank. one of the best
of jtotatoes. "run oat." through careless
ness In tho matter of selecting seed, and
not taking care to procuro seed potatoes
from distant growers and soils different
from their own. At all events, the Bur
bank iotato. which statisticians figure up
has added J17.000.0W to the wealth of farm
ers In this country. Is a back number, ns
far as this region Is concerned. Potato
growers far nnd near are now applying
to seedsmen for seed of new varieties, and
the seedmen are kept busy cutting the
eyes of potatoes and sending them by mall
to all parts of the country. Among the
new varieties most In demand Is the Early
Maine, a handsome, almost round potato,
with a deep pink skin, which Is said to
be a good producer, and for cooking
quality not to be beaten. Another Is the
"Uncle Sam." a largo potato of fine qual
ity, which outylclds other varieties two
to one. Anothes. Is a long, wcll-shapcn
white potato, called the Money-llaker.
It belongs to the Burbank class, and Is
said to be a great yielder. It may be that
farmers 'can tind In the new species somo
kind that will surpass the Burbank; If so.
It Is to be hoped that they will not let It
run out. ,
Chickens Becouixo Scarce. Market
men are complaining of the scarcity of
poultry of all kinds. This scarcity Is nat
ural at this time of year, when chickens,
turkeys, geese and all kinds of fowls are
beginning to lay and thinking of raising
broods of young ones. The drain on the
poultry supply of this region has been
more exhausting this season than ever be
fore. Poultry-grpwers have run their
stocks down as low as they care to, for
they are aware that there will be a still
greater demand for poultry of all kinds
this year than there was last, and they all
desire to Increase the number of their
layers and brooders. Not only Is poultry
scarce now. but the quality Is not so
good as It was. wblch-Is a wise provision
of nature. It will tend to lessen the de
mand, and so save more fowls to raise
young for next season's supply. Persons
who have flocks of good varieties of chick
ens are now receiving fabulous offers for
them. If consumers -will have a little pa
tience, tho sweet, tender and succulent
Spring chicken will soon be on the mar
ket. In the form of broiler, this "bird"
has no superior, and when It has reached
the flt-for-frylng stage It has no equal.
The trouble Is that there Is such a de
mand for broilers that but few are al
lowed to grow large enough for frying.
Robins Do Not Make a Sritcco. A cit
izen of Goldendale, Wash., who noticed
a mention made In The Oregonlan In re
gard to Hocks of robins having been seen
about Portland, with a suggestion that
this Intimated the' approach of Spring,
writes to correct what ho considers a
wrong idea. He says many persons have
an idea that robins migrate to a warmer
cUmate and return when Winter Is over.
He says he has lately seen -many robins
In Goldendale when there was snow on
the ground and the thermometer only 10
degrees above zero. Probably the robins
remain In the Northwest all Winter, but
they are not often seen in flocks during
the Winter In Portland, and when they
do appear In numbers It Is usually con
sidered an Indication of warmer weather.
It Is chilly, frosty weather at present in
Portland, but the thermometer has not
gone down to anywhere near zero. Still,
when people notice a flock of robins flut
tering about their premises they think of
the balmy south wind and the odors of

The advertising committee of the Cham
ber of Commerce, at a, meeting yester
day afternoon, considered the matter of
issuing another 104,000 of the booklet "Ore
gon and Its Resources" for the Harrlman
railroad system. It was decided that the
cost of publication and of advertising in
Eastern periodicals would exceed the
amount the Chamber of Commerce has
available for advertising this year. Tho
only way to raise the necessary funds
would be by canvass among the business
men, as was done when the first edition
of the Harrlman booklet was published
last Summer. This was deemed Inad
visable, as the business men have had
many calls for money the past IS months.
It was decided to recommend that this
work be done, by the bureau of Informa
tlon with part of the 116,090 recently sub
scribed for the organization of a bureau
of information and for the Installation of
an exhibit of the products of Oregon at
tne union Depot.
Labor Meetino Postponed. The ad

tho socialist party, for the purpose of de
vising a plan for a co-operative lnstltu
tlon In connection with the Lewis and
Clark Fair, which was set for tomor
row at 10 A. M-, has been postponed vm
til February 2. at the same. hour. A oost
ponement was made necessary, as several
of the representatives of the labor organ

are In attendance at the Legislature at
Salem, where legislation affecting labor
Is pending. For this reason, the labor or
ganizations will be usable to present plans
tomorrow, but these are expected to be la

Sewers in Oreoon Crrr. It has been
found necessary to create another sewer
district, the third. In Oregon City, owing
to the growth of the city and the deter.
initiation of the citizens to have proper
saniiaxy arrangements. A sxstem of sew
ers for the new district has been devised
and mapped out by Paget & Clark, of thl
city, which calls for two miles of terra
cotta sewers from eight to 24 Inches la
diameter. The new district Includes about
100 acres, and the other two about 1G0
acres. When the system of sewers for
each has been completed, the cltywill be

MEN'S LEAGUE AT BANQUET
ConRrecntlonnl Church Members Dis
cuss Church Question.
The Men's League of tho First Con
gregational Church gave a supper last
evening In the parlors of the church at
which Judge M. C. George presided.
Three long tables had been set for 95
persons and every seat was quickly occu
pied by the men of the church, together
with their friends. The proceeds of the
supper were for tho benefit of the league,
which has charge of the Sunday evening
services and bears all extra expenses. Tho

the church and every one was bountifully

water or wine. Judge George Introduced
Dr. Herbert Nichols, whose subject was
In answer to the question, "Could We Do
Without the Ladles?"
He proved that the aid of the ladles
was Indlspenslble In church work In a
neat speech. Charles L. Fay was then
Introduced by the chairman. Mr. Fay
told of the work of the league and the
success It had found In other cities. F. A.
Frazler was the next speaker. His sub
ject was, "Why Do Not More Men At
tend Church?" as given from the stand
point of the business man.
"I have always found In asking this
question that It, was something that hap
pened in early life that threw the
thoughts of tho man In question away
from the church. Once when I was e,
child I was kept from an ice-cream social
to which I thought I had earned admit
tance by reciting in the first part of
the evening, and that simple little Inci
dent set me against the church for a good
many years. It Is the youth that we
must look after If we expect to keep ufr

The Gentle Jeans nnd Hell Fire.
MYRTLE POINT, Or., Feb. 6. To the
Editor.) The Oregonlan recently lamented
the fact that preaching In the past has
been so saturated with the doctrine of
hell fire that men have ceased to attend
church, and with enthusiasm referred, by
way of contrast, to the soothing words of
the gentle Jesus. There is another point
of view from which to see Jesus than that
of gentleness. He said to men that they
had made his house a den of thieves, and
Instead of inviting them to remain he

THE GOVERNMENT'S PROFIT
Uotr It I'nys to MnUe Good Dollxtra
of 37 Cents in Silver.
ASTORIA, Feb. 4.-To tho Editor.)
Your leading editorial In The Oregonlan
of January 31 awakens tho satldcst pos
sible reflections in the hearts of those
who have entered Into tho study of tho
mediums of exchange In the possession of
the great peoples of the world. Perhaps
two-thirds of the people of the earth aro
victims of depreciated currency at this
time, and the end Is not yet. If tho same
forces continue as now the entire supply
of money among these nflUcted nations
will be practically wiped out. with conse
quences too appalling to even contem
plate. Tho dark thing about it Is, that
there Is no hope of relief for them with
the policies In vogue. To get gold they
cannot, because It does not exist In quan
tities to meet the demands.
It Is estimated by the highest authority
that there exists in tho world practically
JliOOO.000,000 In coin and paper; $4,000,000,000
aro gold, M.000,000,000 are silver, and about
J4.W0.C0O.000 are paper. Two billions or
thereabouts of silver are owned by silver
countries. This silver Is worth 3715 cents
on tho dollar and becoming of less value
every day, so that tho value of the sliver
coins of the world Is something over
$3,500,000,000 measured In gold, and count
ing the silver of gold countries at its face
value of tho gold money of the world the
United States alone has In Its vaults at
Washington In various conditions, nearly
$1,000,000,000. Tho remainder of tho gold
of the land Is pretty much all tied up as
reserves and therefore not available to
help those engaged In the "Macedonian
cry" tor help. What Is true of the United
States Is true of all the other gold-standard
countries In proportion to population.
Can anything be done to relieve tho hun
dreds of millions of people threatened
with this dire, calamity? Is this "cry of
Macedonians" to fall dead on the ears of
the great Christian nations that claim to
dominate the enlightenment and civiliza
tion of tho world? Shall civilization fall
bock on tho cruel doctrine of the survival
of the fittest as an apology for Inaction
In this great tragedy?
The great Oregonlan seems to, think that
way. "The funeral, observe. Is China's
and Mexico's," you say. Never was there
a sentence penned more full of gloom,
more full of hopelessness, more full of
human suffering In anticipation than that
one. The editorial In. question could not
have been written In the vein It was had
Its author been In full possession of all
the real facts connected with tho great
monetary struggle going on in the world
between the people and those that are
being consumed with an unholy ambition
to own and control the earth. Tho de
plorable condition now existing Is not
due to any natural causes, but artificial.
Years ago Europe declined to coin silver
on owners or individual account, but con
tinued to coin it on government account
in a quiet way, and that has continued to
this day. They buy the silver of the
world at 47 cents per ounce. (Its value
now) and coin It into money at 132 cents
per ounce, making the difference as
profit. About three years ago It became
necessary for England to buy IM.000.
000,000 worth of silver to coin Into rupees
for India. On this amount England made
$7,500,000 clean profit, and had It been
coined into her own money she would
have made $20,000,000 profit. At the same
time as Europe the United States declined
to coin silver for Individuals, but soon
after bought silver and, coined It on gov
evmment account. In time this was sus
pended, and now no new silver Is coined,
but tho printing-press Is set to work
Instead. There Is now absolutely no mar
ket for sliver In tho world for the Indi
vidual producer except that created by the
great silver trust at Its own figures, which
is now 474 cents an ounce. This national
silver trust controls the price of silver
used in the arts and forces countries
having silver coinage to take the price of
bullion for their money. They have no
largq armies and extensive navies to de
fend their Institutions and harbors-agalnst
the bullies of the earth who want to trade
with them on the gold-standard basis.
China need not be on her knees to the
Christian nations, so called, with the
"Macedonian cry" for help If she were
strong enough Is a military way to live
within herself. Her resources are suffi
cient, but she can't defend her shores
against the enlightened vandals of Eu
rope, who demand from her, in exchange
for things and conditions forced upon
her, that which she has not got and
can't get gold. Her medium of exchange,
silver, that- she could use within herself,
has been annihilated by the eating can
ker of greed.
In the United States, persons afflicted
with the same disease have succeeded, In
getting silver out of the way, and sub
stituting therefor printing-press money
that has to bo guaranteed by Uncle Sam
to make it worth the paper- upon which
It is printed to the extent of $375,000,000.
Here Is displaced 175,000,000 silver dollars,
such as give life and health to tho "Mace
donians" as well as the elect. This is
enough In Itself to take up all the surplus
sliver In the world and make dollars of
tho same value throughout 'the lands of
The answer to bo made to the "cry of
the Macedonians" Is to make a bonfire of
the $375,000,000 of special favor prlntlng
prees money, substitute In Its place silver,
and crush the great European silver trust.
Then all the money of the world will
gravitate to its normal value and there
remain, because nature falls to supply
the demands made upon both gold and sil
ver as a medium of exchange, so much
so that $4,000,000,000 of paper money are
required to make up the deficit. Even with
all the paper extant as a makeshift for
money, tbero are less than $6 per capita
for the population of the world and less
than $4 In coin alone. China has about
$1.50 per capita and India less than $2.50
per capita of all classes of money one
third of the population of the earth.
Shame on the chicanery, the cupidity
and Intrigue of the so-called great finan
ciers of civilized nations. This "cry of the
Macedonians for help," along financial
lines, is the 'saddest cry ever sent up by
mortals. The survival of the fittest in
nature's lower realms is pitiful to con
template, but Its enforcement by professed
Christian nations upon those peoples that
are helpless Is hell on earth In its most
virulent form. I feel sure, I know that
the heart of the editor of The Oregonlan
Is better than this editorial would Indi
cate. W. HAMPTON SMITH.
Mr. Smith is unduly cheerful." Ho
Ignores tho fact that the "Christian
nations" are evidently disposed to assist
China and Mexico to tho gold standard
and then those peoples will bo brought
down Into tho same depths of gloom
where the gold standard his already
plunged Great Britain and. the United
States. Tho worst of it Is that the cry of
tho Macedonians Is going to be heard.
HOW TO LIVE FOREVER.
Profeor Predicts Thnt. Mentnl Sci
ence Will Solve the Problem.
"Tin- tn T.lvn Hero Forever and Ex-
TTnfiUh Ynnth and Beautv In Un
ending Happiness," wis the subject of a
lecture which lToiessor jvnox ociivcrra
to a small audience last night. In tho
course of his remarks ha. slid the attain
ment of happiness was the solo object of
all. and that was tho object of mental
science, by which man might grow on
Indefinitely. Every church and society
taught death, and there was not such an
Institution to be found as a Christian
church or n Christian government.
"Man," he said, "has evolved himself
and has always been, and ho knows more
now than he ever before knew. He will
live In a-tlme when death shall have lost
Its sting and the grave its victory. Then
ho shall Ilvo forever. Tho nemo of Hfo
shall then bo attained, and not till then."
"3Ien nnd Women."
To tho general regret of the theater
going public tho last chance to hear
"Men nnd Women" at Baker's Theater
will bo the matinee this afternoon and tho
regular performance tonight. Many artis
tic successes have been produced at
Baker's this season, but not one of them
has exceeded the beauty, finish and en
joyment reached In "Men and Women."
Thero wero those who thought that tho
limit had been reached with "Charley's
Aunt." but the company showed It was
equally at home In this week's play,
where comedy and pathos go hand In
"Venrr Willie Wnllcer" Mntlnce.
A special matinee for ladles and chil
dren will be given today at Cordray's by
"Weary Willie." Plenty of music and fun.
Last performance tonight.
"The Starbucks" Xext Weelc.
It is worth one's while to see tho Baker
Stock Company In Opie Read's latest com
edy. "Tho Starbucks," which will be given
a careful production at the Baker Theater
next week, starting with tho usual Sun
day matinee. It does not matter so much
when you look In, for tho plot of "Tho
Starbucks" Is only a minor consideration.
Oplo Read calls his latest play a "char
acter drama," and that Is as good a'name
as any, the Interest centering In tho por
trayal of a number of highly Interesting
picturesque types. What plot there Is con
cerns itself with the arrest of an old Ten
nessccan, Jasper Starbuck. for "moon
shlnlng." by the hereditary enemy who
has been refused by Starbuck's daughter,
and It is dexterously woven to hold the
play together In a most Ingenious man
ner. All of the characters are said to
havo been sketched In with a sure and
sympathetic hand and well worthy of Mr.
Read. Tho famous author In this play Is
said to have caught tho characteristic
tang of pastoral life In the Tennessee
hills, giving sometimes, an almost Dick
enslike flavor. The lines are sold to be
delightfully humorous, as might bo ex
pected of anything that Oplo Read has
Sale for Florence Roberta Open.
There is' a heavy sale of seats at tho
Marquam Grand for the engagement of
the popular star, Florence Roberts, who
opens Monday night In David Belasco's
great success, "Zaza." While Miss Rob
erts is constantly strengthening her repu
tation with new portrayals of great roles,
"Zaza" will always bo considered by play
goers as her masterpiece. Not one of tho
thousand opportunities offered by this
play is overlooked by tho clever star. It
Is said that the company is even more
capable than the excellent support Miss
Roberts had last season, and a finished
production Is promised. "Zaza" will also
be the bill Tuesday night, and on Wednes
day and Thursday "Tho Unwelcome Mrs.
Hatch", will hold the boards. Soudcr
mann's celebrated "Magda" will be played
on Friday. Tho Saturday matinee will be
devoted to "Tho Adventures of the Lady
Ursula" and Saturday evening to
. "A Trip on Broadway."
Fun. song and dance have all combined
to make the visit of Murray and Mack, at
the Marquam Grand Theater, In a'Trlp on
Broadway," a pleasing success. Their
Jokes and smart sayings are as welcome
as ever, and the . play Is handsomely
staged. The confetti scene Is well worth
witnessing, as well as the famous boxing
match by the two chief comedians. There
will be a popular matinee this afternoon;
prices, adults, 50 cents, and children 23
cents. The last perform anco takes 'place
