A FEW DAYS AGOC. B. Booth, chair
man of the National Irrigation Asso
ciation, had a long interview with
President Roosevelt in the interest of
the repeal of the desert land law and
homestead commutation act. He as
serts that he has many proofs of frauds
perpetrated through these laws detri

President promised to look into the
T he financial condition of the United
States government in many respects
contrasts very favorably with that of
England at this time. England has no
surplus at all. Moreover, the securities
of the United States government are
far above par, our 2 percent bonds be
ing quoted at 108. England's 2 1-2 per
cent consols are at 88. Since the be
ginning of the Boer war in 1899 there
has been a shrinkage in the market

amounted to about $600,000.000.

fir that is known the world over. The
largest specimen of this timber in Ore
gon was on exhibit at the'World’s
Fair. The tree was 300 feet high and
40 feet in circumference at the base. It
was 118 feet from the ground to the
first limb. The age of this giant of the
Oregon pineries is estimated to be over
400 years. More ships carry masts of
Oregon Douglas fir than any other
timber. The largest and best flag staffs

The amateur statesman and financier
who has been placed by the Republic
an leaders in charge of the United
States treasury has been adding to the
amusement of the world by telling
how he would settle the currency ques

however, enormous opportunities for
mischief, and his zeal for the Wall
street bankers, l>orn of numerous in
terviews with the astute masters of I
finance who control the money and
stock markets, has led him to violate
the plain enactments of congress. Sec
retary Shaw at the evident bidding of
the stock gamblers has been and is
doing the very acts that the Aldrich
bill that congress refused to pass would
That Secretary Shaw is entirely In
capable of comprehending the simple
law that governs the movement of
money is shown by his extraordinary
efforts to increase the currency volume.
With one hand he deposits with the
banks the treasury surplus aud with the
other is retiring circulation, which the
banks find it profitable to do, as the
bonds that secure it have so advanced
in price that the banks find it is more
profitable to sell fS-m. The Increased
premium on bonds has been brought
about by the demaud for them as se
curity for the surplus cash Mr. Shaw
is loaning to favored banks without
interest So far as increasing the mon
ey supply goes this is merely robbing
Peter to pay Paul, the only restriction
being that the retirement of bank cir

Secretary Shaw has evaded, if not
disobeyed, the law that provides for
public money being deposited with
banks by depositing $2,500,000 with
the St Louis banks without requiring
them to deposit United States bonds as
security. In this case he accepted state
and municipal bonds as security, and
bankers all over the country are de
manding, on the same terms, their
share of the $40,000,000 that Secretary
Shaw says he will loan, besides the
$156,000,000 already loaned.
It is rather discouraging to those who
believe in a strict construction of the
law in all that relates to the care of
the public money that the evasion of
the law in the Interest of the bankers
by the secretary of the treasury is in
dorsed by President Roosevelt. It
shows the desperate condition of at
least some of the banks that the presi
dent has been forced to yield to their
Importunities for help. It likewise
shows that the boasted independence
of the present administration of the
money power and Wall street, if such
ever existed, has been adjusted for
political reasons and that the old alli
ance between the Republican leaders
and the banks, trusts aud corporations
is in full force and effect It is not
difficult to believe that these loans,
without interest of nearly $200,000.000
of the people's money will return am

is noted in the growing demand for In

and the enormous increase in the im

than a half century old. In 1882 the

There are only two classes of agri
ralturists that are protected by the
tariff—the sugar planter and the rice
grower—and these are confined to a
small strip of land on the gulf of Mex
ico and are few and insignificant tn
number as compared to the vast num
ber of other agriculturists.
While not receiving any benefit from
the tariff the farmers, as well as every
one else, are required to pay the tariff
tax on sugar and rice for the benefit of
the few growers of these products in
the United States and a bonus besides
to the sugar trust, which is especially
protected by the tariff. The farmers,
although not being protected by the
tariff, are like the balance of us obllg
ed to pay not only the tariff tax on
nearly everything they eat, drink or
wear, but also the more onerous tax
that the trusts Impose on their prod
ucts, which include about everything.
