Mrs. Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Delivers Address to
Those Are the Three Great Lasting
Principles, She Declares, While
Much of Ethics of Biblical
Times . JIave Passed.
cial.) Mrs. Charlotte Perkins Gilman,
the poet and preacher, of social reform,
demonstrated her ability as one of the
foremost American women on the plat
form when she spoke on "Public
Ethics" before several hundred hearers
at Gladstone Park last night. For two
hours members of the Chautauqua As
sociation listened to her on the grad
ual development of humanity along
certain lines and its degradation along
other lines. According to Mrs. Gilman,
certain virtues accorded to the human
race in biblical times have entirely dis
appeared, while others as important
have taken their place! "Three great
human virtues still exist, have existed
and will always exist," said Mrs. Gil
man. "These are love, truth and Jus
tice, being the three that humanity Is
most In need of."
Mrs. Gilman drew here examples from
all walks of life, including the part
taken in the world's affairs by men and
women, and showing how in some ways
women were leaders In particular vir
tues while men led the race In others.
She dwelt on necessity as the mother
of ethics, the difference between ethics
of religion and ethics pertaining to
public affairs, showing that while re
ligion changes, public ethics never do.
In her comparison of the lives of
women and men, the speaker pointed
out the different spheres In which the
sexes were allowed to advance, show
ing that by strenuous contact with
each other from boyhood to manhood
men were all permitted to grow with
the world, -while women from girlhood
were restricted to home life, and con
sequently were not well versed In life's
According to Mrs. Gilman. the only
way to improve the public ethics of the
world, and especially of America, was
to eliminate personality so far. as it
pertained to business, affairs, and for
the human race to work together for
the good of humanity, claiming this to
be the foundation of love, friendship
and -unselfishness in public ethics.
She took a slap at the corporations
and trusts of the United States, show
ing their greed for money and the dis
honest methods adopted to procure it.
On the whole, her oratory was pessi
mistic, but here and there she threw
out a gleam of hope for tne betterment
of public honesty and virtue.
Mrs. Gilman's personality was com
manding, her voice was clear and she
advanced her arguments and-f parallels
with vigor. Her talk was noU-tlrlng at
any period, and she held her audience- to
the last.
Great Interest is being manifested at
the park in the work of the morning
classes In history, literature, -school of
cooking, and physical culture- Each of
the classes is well attended and the In
structors have almost as many pupils as
they can take care of.
Class in Literature.
Dr. Hoadley's class In English litera
ture, .because of the number of pupils, has
been separated into . two divisions.. His
lectures to the classes are especially In
teresting, as he deals with only the In
teresting periods of the growth of Eng-.
lish letters.
Dr. J. Whltcomb Broughers lecture yes
terday on "A Tenderfoot Abroad" was
both amusing and Instructive. He took
the audience through the agonies of sea
sickness to England, where he traveled
with them to the principal points of in
terest from a historical standpoint, to the
present-day wonders of the English me
tropolis. He also gave a short talk on
France, dealing principally with Paris,
dwelling on the beauty and Immorality
of the city.
Everett Kemp, the reader for the Chau
tauqua, is a humorist of no mean ability.
He is attracting larger audiences to the
auditorium than most- of the speakers,
and the spectators are kept In laughter
from his appearance on the stage until
he leaves it.
The Baseball Game.
The baseball game yesterday between
the Bralnard Maroons and the Stephens
Addition teams was a baseball farce al
most as comical as Mr. Kemp's humor.
The game was replete with errors and
bad plays, and resulted In a score of 1C to
13 In favor of the Bralnard Maroons.
An interesting programme has been
prepared for today. Homer Davenport,
the famous cartoonist, will deliver a lec
ture at S P. M., xm "Indian Stories and

Dcpew's Explanation of Land Com
pany's Equitable Deal.
NEW YORK, July 13. Senator Chaunccy
M. Depew has made a statement to the
Paris correspondent of the New York
Tribune regarding the loan of $250,000
made by the Equitable Society to the De
pew Land Improvement Company on
property alleged to have been worth only
$150,000, In which he says that he had
never advocated or recommended any
such transaction, because he was a di
rector of the Equitable. Senator Depew
further says:
"That loan never could have been made
unless the official appraisers of the Equi
table had reported after examination that
$250,000 was only CO per cent of the prop
erty's value, such being the rule of the
society, and that on such a report the
officers of the company had unanimously
approved It.
"The Depew Land Improvement Com
pany was operated some five years before
I was induced to become a stockholder.
The town had then about 39.000 Inhab
itants and many thriving Industries, in
cluding the New York Central shops, the
connection with several trunk llpes. The
company appointed a general manager,
who built homes, a hotel, opened streets,
extended the water and sewer systems
and Incurred great liabilities In Improve
ments. "A. few of the larger stockholders
formed a plan to pay off all liabilities and
provide working capital, but the stock
holders were so numerous, a large number
living abroad, that co-operation could not
be secured, and the company went into
the hands of a receiver five years after
the Equtable loan. The appraisal of the
property has been made- by officers and
independent persons, the lowest valuation
being $200,000 over and above all liabil
ities. "If the Equitable and other creditors
will join and take the property out of the
hands of the receiver and put It on a go
ing basis, there Is no possibility of loss.
On the contrary. In the Judgment of those
best acquainted with the property there Is
a certainty of profit.
"A few days before I sailed from New
York 1 placed my resignation as counsel
in the hands of Chairman Morton, and I
am very glad that he accepted It. I have
passed my 71st birthday, and I had made
up my mind before I reached 72 to secure
something of that rest and freedom from
Incessant work that has been denied me
year after year."
Morton Contradicts Statement of
Depew Salary Will Stop.
NEW YORK. July 13. Senator Depew
has not resigned as a director of the
Equitable Life Assurance Society. This
announcement was made today by Chair
man Paul Morton, of the Equitable, when
his attention was directed to an Inter
view with the Senator In Paris yesterday,
which was printed here today.
Mr. Morton said that Just before Sena
tor Depew sailed for Europe a few weeks
ago he called at the Equitable offices and
told the chairman that he would resign
as a director and that he. had no objec
tion to his $20.000-a-year position as spe
cial counsel to the Society being can
celled or abolished. No formal presenta
tion of the resignation ever had been
made, however, and Mr. Morton said he
was unprepared to say whether or not it
would be accepted If tendered.
Senator DepeWs connection with the So
ciety as special counsel will terminate on
August l.Mt having been announced some
time ago that the position would be abol
ished at the end of the present month.
Recent Developments In Equitable
Affairs Concealed From Him.
NEW YORK, July 13.-James TV. Alex
ander, ex-presldent of the Equitable Life
Assurance Society, continues very III. He
is undergoing treatment in a secluded
place In Long Island.
It was said today he is in such a con
dition that all knowledge of the recent
developments in the society have been
kept from him. According to statements
made, Mr. Alexander does not yet know
that Paul Morton Is at the head of the
Equitable. Neither has he been Informed
of the Ryan purchase and the Installa
tion of Messrs. Cleveland. O'Brien and
Westinghouse as trustees. The fact of the
acceptance of his own resignation and
that of Mr. Hyde. It was declared, has
not been made known to him. neither has
Information been conducted' to him of the
return of sydicate money, nor the purport
of the report of State Superintendent of
Insurance Hendricks.
Marked Property Down to $150,000
and Caused Foreclosure.
SYRACUSE. N. Y.. July 13.-State In
surance Superintendent Hendricks today
was a'sked as. to.-why reference to the
Depew. Improvement - Company and Its
exorbitant loan from the Equitable Life
Assurance Society was not contained in
the preliminary report of bis Investiga
tion of the society's affairs. Mr. Hen
dricks said:
"That was. ancient history. "We had
gone Into that before. We told them (the
society) to call in the loan. We marked
the valuation of the property down to
$150,00). They kicked on that and we told
them that if we made any change It
would "be less. They then foreclosed the
mortgage on the property, bid it In for
$50,000 and they have it yet."
Mr. Hendricks also replied to the com
ment of District Attorney Jerome, or
New York, who had said it was funny
that the newspapers could get a copy- of
the evidence taken in the Equitable In
vestigation when he (the District Attor
ney) could not. Mr. Hendricks said:
"If Jerome wanted a copy of the testi
mony, why did not he ask for it? Ho
has. never asked for a copy of the testi
mony.' It Ls understood that a copy of the tes
timony was sent tQ the New York offlco
of the department to be ready for Mr.
Jerome If he asked for it.

KANSAS CITY. July 13. The giving of
rebates as a common practice to secure
business was brought out today in the
testimony of A. G. Shires, of Marietta. O.,
traveling salesman for the Pennsylvania
Refining Company, of Oil. City, Pa., who
was a witness at the hearing In the
state's suit to oust the Standard Oil Com
pany, the Republic 01r"Company and the
Waters-Pierce OH Company from the
State of Missouri.
Mr. Shires was manager of the Republic
OH Company at St. Joseph. Mo., from
November. 101. to May. 1902, and came, to
Kansas City In June as assistant manager
of the Republic Oil Company. He found
the Standard and the National "the only"
companies here, he said. He had charge
of the tank business for the Republic, the
lubricating oil department, and handled
gasoline and. kerosene for grocers. He
was. he said. Instructed to get after the
National's customers. Henry Teagle, the
manager. Mr. Shires said, told him to gef
certain of the National's customers, and.
If necessary, pay a rebate of one-half a
cent a gallon. These rebates were paid
In cash to customers. He said he never
hnfi tried to get trade from the Standard's
customers. The rebate applied only to the
National's trade. Mr. Shires said he was
told by Mr.- Teagle to say to customers
that the Republic Oil Company was- an
Independent concern.
"Did you ever, during your whole em
ployment here." Inquired. Attorney-General
Hadley. "offer any rebate or any In
ducement to customers to take their trade
from the Standard OH Company?"
"'No, sir; never."
"Where did you get the information re
garding prices to charge for xll?"
"From the Standard OH Company -always."
"How did you Instruct your .salesmen
"To say that the Republic OH Company
was an" Independent company, handling
Pennsylvania goods; that It had no con
nection with the Standard OH Company,
and waa out of the business."
Mr. Shires said that, when he was man
ager at St. Joseph for the Republic Oil
Company, he once had. too much olf on
hand and he wired Kansas City for in
structions. He was ordered, he said, to
transfer the oil to the Standard OH Com
pany and did so. He sometimes used the
Standard's horses. There was no compe
tition In St. Joseph or Kansas City be
tween the Republic and the Standard.
"Collective Ownership."
PORTLAND. July 13. (To the Editor.)
Isn't it to the interest of people of money
to force its use by some manner of means
whereby they can profit at others' ex
pense, or what would its worth be? Is
It to be expected they will, of free will,
give up any chance or opportunity to
monopolize or rule, that will help them
do so? Isn't this at the cost of those
whose opportunities to live and have are
lessened by It. and Is It right a few
should hold and control the earth, the
common heritage, and farm out Its In
dustries to the rest at a profit of a free
living at their expense? Under Social
Ism the mutual ownership and manage
ment of the common means of life's sup
port would make this impossible, for. all
being subject to the same law of life, the
need to work to provide Its wants and
comforts, with like right and opportunity
of the means, all would have to, or go
without; as none would work to support
others In Idleness In such case. And this
collective ownership and management of
social means ls the aim and purpose of
Socialism. By it the people will be able
to furnish and direct the employment of
themselves through equal and like Inter
est In the means of common support.
Then the Individual Interest and welfare
of each will be the common purpose of
all. the right of self-support and product
fif all labor: which will eventually lead
to th establishment of a great co-operative
commonwjajlb, as a means to the
end. Let It be hopeh its day Is near.

The "toy church." as it Is ortcn called
by persons passing through the village
of West Canaan. N. H.. Is said to be the
smallest structure In the state, and prob
ably In New England, used exclusively
for church purposes.
The dimensions arc 1Sx2I feet.
The church ls painted white, with slate
colored trimmings and green bjinds. The
main part contains three large windows
on each side and two In the rear. The
vestibule is about six feet deep and two
feet lower than the main building. A
steeple arises above the whole. The ap
proach Is by seven wooden steps,- running
along the entire front. -As
one enters this unique structure he
Is first attracted by the oval celling of
hardwood, and In fact the entire interior
Is finished in hardwood. The pulpit and
choir loft are raised a little from the
main floor, which Is covered with a very
neat carpet In red and ecru. The settees,
fifteen In number, are stained a dark red.
A large stove furnishes heat. Double
swing doors open Into the vestibule, and
there a library of sixty books is located.

Concerning Street Lights.
PORTLAND. July 12. (To the Editor.) At
a citizen and taxpayer I mot strongly ob
ject to the rulings made by the now defunct
oW txecutlve board rfgardlnc the report of
lights out at nights on our streets. Jiwt as
the old City Council did some remarkable
things at Its last session, the old executive
board ls likewise a painful memory. What
"Influence." wan brought to bear upon the ac
tion of the board regarding the many "won
derful" things it did. the writer leave to
the public to suggest. . The Morrkon-?treet
bridge and the Tanner creek sewer have
thrown some light on the subject. And now
come? the order that no lights out on our
streets at night shall hereafter be reported
out before th policemen on their respective
beats have first reported to the police station,
and the station reported to the light com
pany that one or more lights arc out. The
policemen shall then neglect their dutlee and
watch for the light If they are started up
In "reasonable time and then no reduction
shall be made." And this simply means that
no light? will be reported out and the city
will liwe -thousands of dollars each year, and
the citizens have to walk in darknes.1. as
many lights will always be out. By what
right Is the police department made the serv
ant of the light company? Should not that
corporation pay Its own light Inspectors? If
lights shall not be reported out. say so. but
do not make fools' of us by the present rul
ing. I hope the new board will take up
the matter at once.

PORTLAND. July 12. To the Editor.) Wilt
you be :v kind as to allow me a little space In
your papr In reply to two Items which have re
cently appeared there In regard to my stand
in k and character, t am unwilling to have
representation which are untrue In every par
ticular remain unanswered. In your Issue of
July 12 an account wan siren of my trial
In the Police Court. In which It waa alleged
that I had wrongfully extorted money from
a woman and a Wo beaten her. I characterise
this as false In every particular, for I
never charge people for my services, but
leave to them what they shall give. If any
thing. I have been well know in Portland
for years, and In that time many, many peor
pie have been benefited mentally and ph id
eally through my Instrumentality. A num
ber of these people were In court to tertlfy
In my favor, but the Judge considered their
testimony Inadmissible, hence I have no al
ternative but to ask you to hear what I
have to say. I never struck this woman, as
wltnesrea who were present have testified,
and nearly all the money I receive except
my living expenses goes to charity. I wan
never driven out ot Spokane or any other
place In my life, but left on my own ac
count and at my own convenience. I did
receive- ?10 from this woman, but It was
as a gratuitous offer to Induce me to treat
her case. lv would have done It without
price had sfte claimed poverty.
