TACOMA, Wash-. May 30. (Special.)
Congressman Jrfmcis W. Cushman." of Ta
coma, was the S3eaker this afternoon at
an immense Memorial day demonstration
he'd at Mount Vernon, in Skagit County.
The principal part of the Congressman's
address was upon themes connected with
the Civil War, the sacrifices and heroism
of the soldiers of the Army, and the debt
of gratitude owed to them by all citizens.
As he drew toward the close of his ad
dress he delivered a decidedly Jcarless
and notable utterance on the present la
bor troubles," as follows:
" I have always tried to be an optimist
ratht "- than a pessimist. I am not con
tinually oppressed at forebodings for my
country. I believe that the eternal spirit
of liberty and justice abides in the Ameri
can heart in the year of 1905. just as it
throbbed in the hearts of these old vet
erans in the days of 1S65. Therefore, be
lieving these things, I am nt expecting
this Nation to be destroyed either by
foreign invasion or domestic violence.
Great Issues Are Rising.
"But in . these days there are some gi
gantic issues arising upon our. National
horizon. There have been some things
happening jn this Nation in recent years
that send an electric shock clear down to
the nervous centers of Christian and
patriotic humanity.
"Twenty men. standing on a depot plat
form in Colorado, are blown into otcrnity
while waiting 'to go to their work. Men
In Chicago today are being murdered and
mangled by a howling mob in the sacred
name of labor. An organized mob in the
City of Tacoma drove a crew of men
from the deck of a ship into the soa. be
cause of a labor dispute.
"I am not pausing here to discuss at
length the differences of capital and labor.
But whenever one man or one mob mur
ders other men simply because they want
to work, there is only one side of that
controversy foii all decent, law-abiding
.citizens to array themselves on and that
Us the side of law and order, and against
(he reign of murder and violence.
V Not an Enemy of Labor.
"I have never been accused of being an
enemy of labor, either organized or unor
ganized. I believe in unions as long as
they confine their activities to peaceful
pursuits and lawful efforts. But, my
countrymen, there Is one union In this
country that is a little bit bigger and a
little bit better than any labor union that
was ever organized and that is the
Union of the United States.
"As one who feels profoundly on this
subject, I earnestly hope for peace be
tween these two Onions. But if unhappily
the time shall ever come In this land
when, by reason of mobs and violence,
one or the other of these unions have to
go out of business, there Is no doubt
In my mind which one of them will have
to cease to exist. I know which union
patriotic American citizonship will rally
to the defense of.
"I have that untroubled faith that
assures my heart that our Illustrious
citizenship will never in this day of their
Nation's pride-and purity turn their backs
upon the Stars and Stripes to follow
the red flag of anarchy in the hunds
of any man or set of men.
, Anarchists at Heart.
"Some men who advocate and practice
lawlessness and violence insist that they
are not anarchist's. Ah, my countrymen,
they may qualify, they may distinguish
and they may differentiate, but any
maty who tries to settle a dispute by
murdei is an anarchist at heart I don't
care what flag he Is parading under.
"Law and order are the very base
f structure of this Government. These
wo form the pedestal upon which the
Coddess of Liberty stands.
"Now is the time for men to stand
forth and declare themselves. You and
I believe in an organized- government of
legal restraint and lawful liberty. And
those who are not with us are against
us. .There is no middle ground there.
He who -does not believe in an organized
government of legal restraint and lawful
liberty Is an enemy to the Government,
gncnemy to Uie man, an enemy to liberty
arid an unspeakable, insult to his Maker
"I have observed that there aro some
men whose patriotism is always, over
active In times of profound' peao; and
when there Is not any danger. There
are men who are willing to denounce
anything, provided everybody" else is de
nouncing that s'rfme thing,. I have- little
use for that complacent and convenient
kind of criticism.
Red Riot in Chicago.
"When President McKinley was slain
by the handt of an assassin there was a
great many people who denounced, vio
lence. laWlessness and anarchy in un
measured terms ana" that was perfectly
proper. "Well, that Is exactly w'hat is
going on in Chicago right now; violence,
lawlessness and anarchy, and that being
true, now Js. the time for .all good and
law-a"b!dlng people in this 'Nation to put
their patriotism into practice.
"No man can look me in the face and
say that ever as a private citizen or a
public servant I have been recreant or
unfaithful to the cause of those .who. labor,
but when they resort to , violence and
bloodshed, right there I inilt- X won't
march under a flag that s drenched with
Hood ot assassinated, victljns. I don't care
who In carrying: it, or what .emblem is
paipted on. (U,; . "...

Legislation of Various Sorts in Large
Volume Will .Come Up for
CENTERV1LL.E. Wash.. May -(Special.)
The 17th annual session of the
Washington, State Grange, Patrons of
Husbandry, will convene at Toledo,
Lewis County. Juoe 6. It is thought this
will .be the best session yet held. There
are about 70 subordinate Granges en
titled to representation, and tho mem
bership in the state Is over 30OQ. while
four years ago It was about 700. In that
time Washington has made a greater,
percentage of gain than any other state
In the Union.
A large amount of legislation will be
enacted at this session. The principal
work along this line will be for direct
legislation, taxation, a system by which
the state prints its own schoolboaks. and
some advocate that the Grange demand
that the state own the books. Good roads
will also come In for consideration. No
doubt a discussion of the. present horti
cultural Inspection law will take place.
It is generally blleved that the order will
go on record for Its repeal, as it is
proving very unpopular with the farmers
in certain sections.
A mutual lire insurance company is
conducted by the order, or for members
of the order that yant fire protection,
and is proving to he a profitable and
popular feature.
A complete set of officers, excepting
two members of the executive commit
tee; will be elected to conduct the af
fairs of the order for the next two years.
The next annual meeting of the State
Grange wllh perhaps, be held at Spokane.
The Patrons of that county made an ef
fort to secure the convention this year,
but the 15th annual session was held at
Pullmqn and the 16th at Centerville, both
east .of the Cascades, and it was thought
best to send it "west, of the mountains
this year. t
Whitman is the banner Grange county
of the state, there being 17 Grange. in
that county, with nearly two-fifths of the
membership of the state. Klickitat and
Clark Counties are rivals for second
place on the list. About three-fifths of
the members In the state live in these
three counties. In many courjtles of the
state there aro no' Granges. Where or
ganization has been attempted it was
thought best to organize thoroughly. New
territory will be Invaded -byi organizers
as fast as practicable. The - leaders in
this order throughout the state predict
that the farmers will be thoroughly or
ganized for co-operatlpn through the
Grange In a few years!
The Grange Is playing an important
part in securing legislation both state
and National for tho. benefit of those en
gaged in Agriculture. Rural free' deliv
ery of mall, good roads laws and the
Interstate Commerce Commission; were
secured largely through the efforts of
the Grange, besides many less "important
laws of great benefit to the- farmers
were passed hy the direct of Indirect in
fluence of the order.. ,

Blessed Above Mankind.
Few people are more fortunately situated
than" you are. my countrymen. I believe that
the future will wltncw upon Punet Sound, in
ever- avenue of human activity, a substan
tial growth one of which we little dream to
day. Your successful past and splendid pres
ent are but prephctic of a successful future.
You have but to utilize In a serelblc way
tho natural opportunities which are .about
you in such marvelous abundance In order
to expend your commercial power to the
utmost decree.
The theme uppermost today is patriotism.
As I have Journeyed hither, through the state
I .have found the people assembled reverently
aiid gratefully paying- tribute to the memory
of the Nation'.- heroic dead. What I have
witnessed In the State of Washington has
ben transpiring- elsewhere. where-cr the flag
ftoata. within the ample limits of the tcrrl-
tory of the great Republic. The busy marts
Hav been lerted. The stock exchanges
have been closed.. Political antagonisms have
been Btilted. In short, the people have
turned aside from their umial vocation to
hotter themselves by honoring the memory of
thee who died that the Republic might live.
Gratitude to IJhcrty-Glrer.
It la. extremely fitting that one day in all
the yenr should be set apart for such patri
otic flervkre: that we should express our
gratitude for those who died that we might
enjoy liberty. The American people are es
pecially a HbTty-lovlng people. They lovo
liberty for themselves" and they love liberty
for others. They drew the srvord that alien
people In the distant seas might taste the
priceless fruit of liberty.
Our Nation has grown in strength and
pewcr hecauee It has been a Just Nation;
because the people have loved It. The Na
tional spirit, which Is the very life, the
strength, the power of the Republic, was
never stronger In the breasts of our country
men than it (5 today.
Devotion to liberty.
We covet peace. We have no love for war.
We know Its tremendous cant, and as we
recall the sacrifices of those whose memories
we shalt keep ever green, we pledge anew our
devotion to the cause of liberty and to the
preservation of the National peace.
Fellow-citizens.' my time does not allow
ma more than these few and hasty words.
My. wish 1 that you may each and all go
forward, making stronger and better, the
state, adding to the glory and honor of our
thoeen country. The recollection of your
kindly courtesy will always abide with me
as a sweet and precious memory".

SALEM. Or., May 30. (Special.)
While blasting a boulder out of the.
county road near Macleay a few dayj.
ago. W. A. Taylor uncovered frag
ments of -coal, which burned freely
when exposed to tne neat of the sun's
rays concentrated by a lens. Mr. Taylor
has not Investigated to find out what
quantity of coal exists in that vicinity.
This Jlscovery Is about four miles
south of the place where Allap For
ward found coal about a year ago. and
is about four miles east ot the places
where petroleum was found In wells
at Pratum and the Minto school.
The coal deposits are higher up In
the WaUO Hills than the wells in
which oil was found. Mr. Taylor is con
fident that there Is a large area of coal
deposits in the Waldo Hills.
Mr. Forward sunk a well with a dia
mond drill a year ago for the purpose
of determining whether coal could be
found under conditions which would
warrant mining operations. His con
clusion was that while the coal was of
good enough quality, the strata were
too thin to make mining profitable. At
other places in the Waldo Hills the
conditions may be more favorable. The
coal found by Mr. Taylor was blown
out from under a rock that weighed
many tons.
