LANDLORDISM IN AMERICA.
Farm tenantry In the United State
Is on the Increase. Census bureau sta
tistics how that there were S.026.S8

MOO. The Increase for the past 20yeart
hi estimated at 97.7 per cent. These fig
vres would Indicate that there really
Is grave danger of landlordism in thia
At the present time, more than a
third of the farms in Kansas and Ne
braska are operated by tenants. In
view of this, it behooves the govern
ment Jealously to supervise the sale of
the remaining public lands, especially
in Oregon and other states and terri
tories where Irrigation Is to be intro
duced on a large scale. For more than
a year past land syndicates have re
sorted to all kinds of coxenafce to ac
quire possession of large tracts of land
which. If put under Irrigation, would be
of the utmost value and promise. In
various sections of Nebraska, the cat
tle barons are said to be extremely ac
tive in this unlawful land grabbing.
They know lull well, that their day of
undisputed supremacy Is fast drawing
to a close. They hate and fear the
small and honest homesteader. In fur
thering Uieir plans of acquiring many
thousands of acres of land, they do not
hesitate to circumvent the provisions
of the federal homestead law through
despicably Ingenious devices of brib
Considering the unlimited possibilities
ef agricultural development which the
Neulanda irrigation act holds out, to
gether with the rapid diminution of the
public domain, there is the most potent
reason why the government authorities
should be stricter than ever in superin
tending the disposition of the land
that is still left. We do not want any
landlordism In this country. We want
homesteads, not lordly domains. The
government can no longer afford to be
lax and liberal in the sale of land
which belongs, to the nation:
Tlie national homestead law proved
one of the most statesmanlike pieces of
leuWlatlon ever enacted in any nation
- 'or iti any mre; It did much to. bring
about our country's phenomenal and
unprecedented growth in poulatlon,
wtulth and industry. And there is ev
ery indication ' th.it the, national Irri
gation law will prove an equally stim
ulative and beneficial economic factor,
ariie fciral treasury is ready to begin
to spand millions of dollars upon ir
rigation works. The fund available for
thia purpose is growing apace. Two
decades hence, large tracts of land now
i naiabte, will have been converted in
tofertlle land of the greatest product
ivity. And it would be a sorry and
disheartening spectacle, if at that time
s ub land should be held by greedy
monopolists and not by small upbuild
ing fanners. ,
Tenantry means ruinous exploitation
uf agricultural resources. It is not in
accord with republican institutions. It
makes for a landed aristocracy, fr a
widening of the gulf between upper
and lower' classes, for eccumic distress
and political corruption and decay.
Jude Taylor'of the St. Louis circuit
cunt recently ruled that "Hereafter

All Cooks Delight in using

the propriety of this decision appeal to
us, that one wonders why It had not
been rwiched and put in vogue long
ngo, in every divorce court In the land.
Heaven knows that It is bad enough
tat people with children are ever di

must learn that fathers and mother

Jim Ham Lewis blew Into Portland
this week from Chicago, and told an
Oregonian reporter that the scheme to
tunnel under Behrlng sea Is not only
feasible, but that the work would ac
tually be begun by a French syndicate
whose representative Lewis claims to
be. We had not heard that the Illi
nois insane asylum Is so crowded that
it cannot receive another charge, but
perhaps tne deplorable Illness of his
holiness. Pope Leo XIII, may have
caused the Associated Press to omit
such routine matter.
The reception tendered to Rear-Admiral
Cotton and the other American
officers of the quadron now in British
waters, cannot be other than extremely
gratifying to all patriotic, broad-minded
Americans. The tacit understand
ing which both this country and Eng
land seem secretly to covet, would per
haps assure the peace of the world In
definitely. The king of England is not
only officially one of the most power
ful monarch of the earth, but he is
one of the shrewdest and most far-see
ing as well.
The Important duty of securing the
success of the Astoria regatta this year
could not have been Imjwsed upon
worthier shoulders than Messrs. Brown
and West who are acting as president
and secretary respectively. They are
young men of energy and public spir
it and already have secured subscrip
tion pledges which practically Insure
the regatta to be the very best ever
held in Astoria.
There are influences now working
rapidly which may make Astoria the
leader of the Pacific northwest in the
output of saw-mill products. This es
tablished, such kindred lines of enter
prises as furniture factories, box fac
tories, turning lathes and woodworking
machinery generally, would quickly fol
' PUSH THE REGATTA.
