INVENTIONS AND WAGE.
Some paper has started the silly
question: "Do inventions decrease
wages?" ." Certainly they do not.
On the contrary, inventions in
crease wages, shorten the work
day and decrease prices. In fact,
inventions constitute the only pos
sible way by which labor can be
emancipated from drudgery, long
hours and poor pay. Inventions
are increasing every year, and
wages are constantly advancing
in all countries where they are
utilized. Take calico as an ex
ample: There are persons now
living, who can remember when
calico sold at 25 cents a yard. It
now 6ells at 8 cents. .This great
reduction in price was effected by
inventions. In the meantime,
wages have in no case fallen, but
have advanced very greatly. A
day's wages will now buy as much
calico as a week's wages would
fifty years ago. Calico is selected
as an example, but the same facts
are true as regards other manu
Any one, no matter whether a
laborer, a loafer, or a capitalist,
who talks against invention talks
against one of the very greatest
material blessings that has been
vouchsafed to the world, and it is
astounding that any person can be
found who is so ignorant or so rash
as to condemn them. Scientific
THE STATISTICAL CRANK AGAIN.

THE LITTLE SOLDIER.'
"When I'm big I'll be a soldier,
That's what I will be;
Eight-for father, fight-for mother,
Over laud and sea!"
And before him on the table
Stood in bright array
All his little wooden soldiers,
Ready for the fray. . .
Then he charged his little canon,
Singing out with glee,
"When I'm bin I'll be a soldier,
That's what I will be!"
By the firelight sat the mother.
Tears were in her heart.
Thinking of the swift time coming
When they two must part.
Soon the shadow fell between them,
Soon the years flew by;
He has leit his little mother,
' Left her perhaps to die.
All the laughter Kne forever,
Ail the sunshine fled;
Only little mother praying
By his empty bed.
Then there came a dreadful battle,
Aud upon the plain
Crept the little mother, seeking
Some one 'mid the slaid;
But she never t'ouud her darling
In the white mo'.n gleam.
For the little cannon tiriug
Woke her from her dream.
All a dream! He stood beside her,
Singing out with glee, '
"When I'm I ig I'll be a soldier,
"That's what I will be!'r

Below is given the "declaration of
principles" of the Corvallis nationalist
club lately organized:
"The principle of the brotherhood
of humanity is one of the eternal
truths that govern the world's progress
on lines which distinguish human na
ture from brute nature.
The principle of competition is
simply the application of the animal
law of the survival of the strongest
and most cunning.
Therefore, so long as competition
continues to be the ruling factor in our
industrial system, the highest develop
ment of the individual cannot be
reached, the loftiest aims of humaDi'ty
cannot be realized. .
No truth can avail unless practically
applied. Therefore, those who seek
the welfare of nr.an must endeavor to
suppress the system founded on the un
reasonable principle of competition
and put in its place another basedon
the nobler principle of association.
But in striving to apply this nobler
and" wiser principle to the complex con
ditions of modern life, we advocate no
sudden or ill considered . changes; we
make no war upon individuals; we do
not censure those who have accumulat
ed immense fortunes simply by carry
ing to a logical end the false piinciples
on which business is now" based.
The combinations, trusts, and syndi
cates, of which the people at present
complain, demonstrate the practicabil
ity of our basic principle of association
We merely seek to push this principle
a little further and have all industries
operated in the interest of all by the
nation the people organiz ;d the
organic unity of the whole people.
The present industrial system proves
itself wrong by ihe immense wrougs it
produces; it proves itself absurd by the
immense waste "of energy and material
which is admitted to lie its concom
itant Against this system we raise
our protest; for the abolition of the
slaveiy it has wrought aud would per:
petuate, we pledge our best efforts.
When Baby was sick, we gave her Castoria,
When she was a Child, she cried for Castoria,
When she became Hiss, she clung to Castoria,
When she had Children, she cave them Castor a.

Concerning a Woolen Mili
Several weeks ago the board of
trade of Corvallis received a letter
from ; the proprietors of a woolen
factory in Iowaasking if any en
couragement could be given to in
duce them to move their establish
ment to this city, also enquiring
about the condition of things in
general. This was answered in
due time by the secretary wherein
he stated, among other ' things,
that, although Corvallis had no
water power facilities just now, the
question of bringing water into
the city for such purposes was be
ing discussed and might result in
the construction of a canal. A
second letter was received from
them yesterday, and they wrote
that they preferred to use steam
as a power providing wood or coal
was plenty, etc., and wanted to
get where the water, that they
would, be compelled to use in
cleaning the wool, was of the
"soft" kind. An offer was made
to srnd one of their men here to
take in the situation providing his
fare one way would be paid by the
board. Very likely this will be
done. It seems, though, that it is
hardly necessary; for if huch peo
ple desire to view this state they
could afford to go down into their
own pockets to defray expenses in
so doing. Albany's woolen fac
tory is a "home" institution just

to get to Portland, can take the
