A. Li. Landbeck, Salem correspondent of tne rortiana Journal,
was one of the pioneers there. Within a radius of two miles
of the Auburn school house, there are now perhaps 12,000

or more. : -r : .

of people. They are aiming at the high places. They , are
'students. Prof. A. G. Lunn, head of the paltry department
lof the Oregon Agricultural , college, who met with the poul
trymen of thte Auburn district last night, found them alive
and alert; eager for all that can be found out about how to

''Vr ' ' . (American Economist)
h .v 'The dying words of a man are usually looked upon a3
-being especially significant.' In' the last public address of
Hon: W. Bourke Cockran,' Tammany Hall Democratic Repre
r sentative from New York delivered just a few hours before
I ..-..! his death, are to be found words as eloquent and impressive
1 as any that have been delivered 'in the Jhall3 of Congress for
I many: days. Had ; he known that they, were to be his last

Some ball players who y have

' prosperity, to wealth, to the possession. of capital than ,f

. denial, and that a more rapid way is through the treas- ,

sounded." " i ':' '"'v
. That is the very sum and essance of the protectice tariff
policy. To work with one's brain and hands, to increase the
material riches of the country, to" diversify its industries,' to
dig into the soil and cause its products to spring up in greater
abundance or of better quality, to invent new machines with
which .to bring forth more and. better products, to experi
ment with the forces of naturerand discover secrets which
have been heretofore hidden from the ken of man,, to make
two blades of grass grow where only one grew, before", to
delve into the bowels of the earth and to bring forth1 hew
mineral riches, toturn those minerals Into new forms for the
use of mankind, is to fulfill the destiny marked out by the
Almighty as the mission of man upon earth, as the mission
of Americans in and for America- ' i ' T
Work such as this is man's destiny. The man who follows
the plow and sows the seed which he later harvests, the miner
who goes down into the earth to bring up its riches, the man
who toils in the mill, who guides the working of the loom,
is doing his part as well as are men with the genius of Edison
or any of the great inventors or any of the great captains of
industry. , r '- ' , "
; But men need the opportunity, and incentive to ; work.-- It
'would be idle to plow the ground or sow the seed if no use
could be made of the resultant crop. If foreigners could come
in and drive our own products from our markets, there would
be no incentive to worki " In 'more eloquent words, the de
parted statesman stited. the situation
"You-cannot induce the employment of human
.hands in industry unless you guarantee to every man
the peaceful and secure enjoyment of all that he pro-
r duces." , ' , -
That is the province of the protective tariff. The tariff
does not go down into the treasury and bring forth bonuses
for accomplishment. It simply protects the worker in his
employment. The production is up to him. Protection
creates the opportunity, but the individual himself must be
responsible for the use which he makes of that opportunityi
When the United States refuses to protect its workmen
in their right to work and to receive the just recompense for
such work, "then the knell of this country's 'prosperity is
sounded." . ' ' . " 4

she said. "I've threatened Sand

They allow a certain amount of
speeding in Paris. On some of
the downtown boulevards a pace
of thirty or thirty-five miles an
hour is permitted and accidents
are much less frequent than ' in
this country. - Now the Parisians
are thinking of disciplining or
regulating the pedestrians. They
have classified "Jay-walking" ac
cording to the American stand
ard and those Who journey on

It with safety andv dispatch. It
