THE MORAL WAVE.
The moral ave that started in New
York city from the organization of the
Xexow committee haa swept accross the
continent, and broke upon the shores of
the Pacific with a rash not equaled else
where in its course. Portland has it
. bad. If it would lead to anything in the
shape ot a better execution of the laws,
every good citizen would wish it more
power to its elbow. But it will not do
this, History repeats itself and the his
tory of reform waves, similar to this one
do not indicate for it any great length of
existence. Epidemics of morals run
their course just as epidemics of measles
or whooping cough, leaving the patient
a memory only of what was. The
trouble with the moral wave is that it is
generaly started in good faith, .but as it
works along it becomes befouled from
contact with the debris which it meets
and the great, broad American mind
begins to use its power for its financial
betterment. The history of great cities
of all of them, shows that the laws are
not enforced concerning gambling and
some other offenses, simply because the
officers appointed to execute the law find
it more profitable to imitate the goddess
of justice by being blind. There is more
money for them in not arresting
offenders than in performing their duty,
since they draw pay from the city for
doing what they are yet better paid to
leave undone. The moral wave makes
its influencevfelt first on these officers,
. because the fear of losing their jobs
compels them to become suddenly vir
tuous enough to do their duty. They
are moved the more easily to this course
by the fact that the aforesaid wave sad
denly throws all its profits on the side of
morality. The hunted hare must hide
from the hounds, and . vice for the
moment driven from cover, ceases its
practices, and consequently shuts off the
fees it haa paid for protection. The
police force of the large cities tben find
ing virtue profitable, first endure and
then embrace. The jingling fee comes
in a golden shower, until for very lack
of material to work upon the moral wave
ebbs, vice that has been in hiding peeps
timerously out, and seeks its old haunts.
It finds the same old guardians of the
peace on hand and ready for another
dicker, which is soon made. By im
perceptible degrees the dice and the
poker-deck find their way to the tables ;
the hand-painted disciples of Baal re
pair their erstwhile deserted temples and
the devotees gather to their old high
places. In the meanwhile virtue, satis
fied, with her spasmodic sweep of the
field, hunts her sleepy hollow, and takes
a Eip-Van-Winkle nap. The moral
wave having spent its force, recedes and
is quiescent, until things have come to
such a pass that the public is aroused in
some city, virtue gets out her reform
wave, and the farce is acted over again
The moral wave is simply the result of
an acute attack of spasmodic virtue. It
accomplishes good, temporarily, bat not
permanently because public virtue is
always spasmodic. On the other hand
vice is like interest on a morgage i
never sleeps, never tires, never quits
A gangrene ot the body politic, it eats
little by little into the healthy flesh and
leaves putridity and death behind it
The present wave will be no exception
and pity 'tis 'tis true. The "Open Door'
will grow tiresome and the wherewithal
of maintaining homes of refuge will be
wanting. Besides those who have been
or are sheltered in these places grow
weary. They Lunger for the excitement
the abandon of the wild life they have
led, as the morphine fiend for his dopej
or the besotted unfortunate for his drink
There is no Keeley cure for vice, and
sooner or later nine tenths, aye ninety
nine one hundreths of the brands
plucked from the burning will find their
way back to the tire. Facilis descensus
Averno, is as true and trite a statement
now as when Virgil penned it, and "to
draw back the footsteps this is a work
miB is a laoor just as nam as it was
2,000 years ago. There is no grander
. work than the reformation of the fallen
and none requiring so much work for so
meagre results. The woman of Babylon
knows not the way out of her city. She
is lost, swallowed up in its mazes. The
bridges are burned behind her. The
"Open Door" permits her to be an oh
ject of pity, but it cannot open for- her
the way to respect. It is a wicked, a
cruel and unjust law of civilization that
the woman is punished forever for what
the man is forgiven. ' It is monstrous
but it is the social fiat- just the same
We may contemn it. but- we cannot
change it. The ethiopian cannot change
hie skin or the leopard his spots and
they who are accustomed to doing evil
are like unto them.
The supreme court of the United
States has decided that the income tax
law is unconstitutional, in so far as it
taxes incomes from rents and municipal
bonds. The court holds that taxing
such incomes is indirectly taxing the
lands, and this the government is for
bidden by the constitution to do. This
may be good law, but it is certainly
neither good sense nor good policy just
now. The great mass of the people
have about arrived at the conclusion
that anything that taxes the very wealthy
is unconstitutional. They do not under
stand those nice distinctions of the law
that permits the food and raiment of the
poor man to be taxed, while the rich
man's income and money is sacred from
the polluting touch of the tax gatherer.
Between a democratic congress, an Ore
gon legislature and the United States
supreme court, the seed of populism is
being sowed broadcast. The harvest
will be more thistles than figs, and more
trouble than prosperity i

organs and functions,
it builds the flesh tip

It rouses every organ of the body to ac

the blood so that the body feels refreshed
and strengthened. If yon are too thin, too
weak, too nervous, it may be that the food
assimilation is at fault. A certain amount
of bile is necessary for the reception of the
fat foods in the blood. Too often the liver
holds back this element which would help
digestion. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery stimulates, tones up and invig
orates the liver, nourishes the blood, and
the muscles, stomach and nerves get the
ncn Diooa tney require.
