We-tern Oregon and Western
Eastern Oregon and Eastern
Washington Fair with slowly
COLD BLOODED NEGLECT.
In its desperate struggle to maintain
its prestige in Eastern Oregon and
Washington, against the encroachment
of its normal enemy, the Northern Pa
cific, the Oregon Railroad A Navigation
Company has never given a single
thought to the empire it might have
dominated south of the Columbia and
west of Portland. From Biggs, the
junction of the Columbia Southern with
its main line (and which latter line it
was compelled to absorb) eastward, it
has spent millions and millions of
money, in spurs and branclie- to every
point liable to invasion by its compe
titor, and the biggest battle of the
whole series is yet to be fought, for
the supremacy of the Sound country,
and now the constructive millions of
the Harriman coffers are flowing like
water therealiout.. cinching up rights-
of-way, terminal faciliti", and special
privileges and to hold what power it
has in the I'uget territory. All this to
the utter exclusion of superb advant
ages already in its hands and lying dor
mant within, comparatively, a stone's
throw of its headquarter-, and the un
touched and incalculable resources of
Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook coun
ties are deliberately overlooked and
ignored and the tremendous prestige of
terminal facilities at the mouth of the
Columbia river goes begging and the
logical agency that should control and
develop and hold it against all corner,
lends its best and last energies to build
up a territory inimical to this. But the
day is not far distant, when poetic jus
tice, in the shape of an invading line
will taice up the repudiated advantages
and put them to the use and profit na
ture and commercial intuition shall
dictate. And that the day may not lag
in its coming, is the devout wish of
every man in this section of the wil
fully abandoned territory.
There i one dicoeiy that Ameri
ca in have made tor tlicniM-hv in the
last few yea i1. ami almost within tin
last few months, that i very close to
epochal in it significance. We refer
to the almost boundless power ol public
opinion on individual lies. To go no
further back than the beginning of the
insurance invetigati-n, what a record is
diselo-ed! Men who. a year ago. were
a- affluent in health il in that wealth
from sources which public opinion has
since stigmatized as dislion -t. have In
come wreck physically or mentally,
exile from home, o'' hac utterly sue
eunilied to their -Invite. It i- impossible
to recall another Midi a !i-t of promi
nent victim of their own humiliation.
It may lie argued that the human wreck
list only prove the greater sensitive
of the prominent bii-ines men of
the day to the criticism of an awakened
public sentiment and that thi ke ner
etNitiveiiess argues a distinct moral
advance of out' people a a whole. This
i both possible and plausible: and.
moreover, it may lie a good thing to Im
lieve. When a physician of repute like
Dr. Pet lee of Ma-sacfitiett dies of a
broken heart and general collapse from
worrying over the charge of unprofes
sional conduct in matters connected with
the lUiston suit case murder, it suggests
that public opinion ha come to be
vital opinion to professional men jealous
of their1 reputations. N. Y. Commercial.
The Universe Is Made Up
Of a Series of Vibrations
By MARTHA CKAIC. Explorer tod tUctrlclan
K an nil full of vibration. Tito ontiro world, tho univiTso,
is inmlo up of tliono vibrations, ami when wo can bv con
stant stiulv attain tin thought THAT WILL CON-
THOI. TUKSK VIHUATIOXS, then wo will bo able to
dissolve ourselves at will, and there will bo no such thing as DKATll.
Everything is evoluling.
After going through several colleges and studying science- for fif
teen years, I have arrived at the conclusion that iNewton's theory of
gravitation is entirely wrong. It is not attraction that pulls things
down to the earth ; it is propulsion that IT'SllKK TI1KM DOWN.
That is one thing which 1 have proved and which 1 told several Italian
scientists who are now working upon my theory. It was while making
this discovery that 1 found out that death was a mistake.
We ought to draw in suthYient electric tlaine to DISSOLVE our
bodies. 1 Ixdieve in reincarnation. I've lived in this world before,
and I'm going to come back again. When 1 go I'll go surrounded by
a flame of tire. That's our destiny. We can begin to get ready any
time we make up our minds to.
We all know that if we put a dead body into a cylinder in the
crematory it disappears KNT1KKI.Y. That is done by heat.
Heat is only a fourth rate power, and when we know that the im
mortal, everlasting power of the soul is greater than heat wo ought to
know that when we learn to control this power WK CAN P
AWAY WITH DEATH.
TIME, TIME, TIME!
To this insatiate cry of the transpor
tation companies, afloat and ashore, all
over the country, the almost daily sacri
fice of human life is the appalling an
swer. It is but another phase of cor
porate greed that is arraying the masses
against the system and giving impulse
and impetus to the creed and threats
of Socialism. Time is of the essence
of profit and profits must be made if
the percentage shall cover the last life
in the hands of those responsible for it.
The issue is fast shaping itself and the
accounting is not fur distant. The last
instance of this deadly avidity hails
from the Denver & Rio Grande system,
where two score of lives paid instant
tribute to the demand for time. Twice
in the night of the disaster the train
dispatcher of the road, at headquarters,
changed his orders controlling the fly
ing trains, in order that moments, not
aggregating more three, at the most.,
might be saved to the schedule; and

The death of President Quintana be

whole world. He was one of the sUte:
men who have done a great work in
demon-trating the capacity of the South
American republics fur enlightened and
progressive self government. I'ndcr his
administration the Southern common
wealth enjoyed stability and progress
in a Mull degree and commanded the
confidenc and repe-t of the world. The

will be .-on-olntion for it in the consid

he led h'T.

It is to be hoped that Mr. Carnegie
will not hereafter insist that in the

Richmond must be the home of Vir

man who forgets to " douse the glim "
until he is fairly in bed, and then shoots

at other unearthly hours.
A little the funniest thing in politics
is the threat of a Connecticut district to
retire Congressman Hill for misrepre
senting Connecticut sentiment in his
vote to support the President's ideas
on the Philippine tariff bill. How small

The discussion of the Hepburn bill
in the United State senate again dem

Our present day labor arrangements, extremely unscientific, would
be remedied by INlU'STl.IAl. KDI'CATION in the public school.
Xow only so many voiim; men in a certain district are permitted to
lean the carpenter and o;! er trades. The idea of the labor union is
to keep the supply UKl.OW the demand in order to ket-p up wages.
I believe the time will come when we will see that it is necessary to
educate ehiklren tj these trades and break down the insane labor con
ditions which now prevail.
