la a recent pper on "The Men

Tie indolent cannot expect plenty an

can the vicious expect hsppinees, but
under bad laws thota who woik tht

Bat tht remtdy:
flow will yoa ever straighten np
- fhii shape,
Tonch it again with tmnioitality?
Give justice to every cmtare jatiice
in the metbodt of government, Justice
in tbe d etribution of tht burdens of
government, justice in the tnskieg of
tht laws, just'ee in tbe interpretation of
the lawe, jutth-e In the execution of tbe
lawt Janice first and charity afterward,
Jnsl'ce will not eliminate distress en
tirely, bat it will greatly reduce the
nomber of those who coma within the
description of the poet. There mill still
be some poor, come destitute, torn des
perate. Generations of vies will trans
mit tendencies toward vice, which mast
be reformed. Soma will be victims of
unavoidable misfortunes they will need
the aid of the more fortunate. The cr
phaa will need a foster parent, the wid
ow will need a friend, tht aged without
relatives will need a benefactor. The
weak must be encouraged by tbe strong;
those who fall mast be lifted np.
Love is tbe sntithesis of gred, and
will inspire both justice aad mercy.
Love and love slone ean regulate the re
lations between man and man and plant
hope in the breast of every child born
into tht world.
When every mar -made wrong is rem
died there will s'ill be suffering enough
to enable every person to prove bis love
toward God by manifesting his compas
sion toward his fellows.
In monarchies revolution it the only
weapon ot tbe oppressed ; under oar form
of government wrongs art righted by tht
ballot; bat even here tbe longer a neces
sary reform is delayed tbe more disturb
ance its accomplishment cauvee.
Victor Hogo has described tbe mob ss
"homan race in misery." We cannot
afford to make people miserable. Life
ii secure and property rights are re
spected in proportion as tbe people End
life worth living. Happy will be tht lot
of all when each member of society
mskes to society a jatt and adequate re
t in for that which he receives from so
ciety. Happy will bt the lot of all wban
each member of society recogo'sM tbe
indissoluble tie that binds together the
highest and tbe lowest, the s Iron get t
and the weakest, tbe richest and tba
poorest whea earh mem jer of society
aids according to his ability to givt
back to the poet's subject.
The upward looking and tbe light;.
Rebuild in it the music and the dream;
Hake right the immemorial infamies,
Perfidious wrongs, immedicable wow.
It Is Interesting to read tl a comments
ol republican popers in which it Is d
clared that Bryan's reuarka art wt h at
thought, that there is nothing to ttirui
but words. With these narrow minded
papers there is nothing tJ anything In
ita that they disagree with. That is if
they think not, then there ts no thought

are being permitted to exchange woiib-
is land off sevsrsl thousand miles for
corns of the finest timber lend in ths
world in this state is a disgrace to the
government of tbe United States which
permits it. but it Is for a fact a sample of
the style of doing basiott of the present
administration, which gtves tbe cor
porations and trusts all tbe advantages
possible. The time may come wben tbe
whole United Statee will be looking to
this northwest country for its timber. It
looks now as if aboot.tbat time the rail
road companies and the big eastern syn
dicates who are clashing with them in ths
mad strife for timber land, will have a
monopoly of it, as tbe big guns are bar
ing a monopoly ot nearly every thing and
Oregon will be in the clutches about tbat
