matter, however, ana that I that the
fellow who does the most kiektiif; is

kicker of all. is the fellow that never
pays a rent of taxes.
Walla Walln may boast of hor fruit
fair, but she isn't in it when it comes
to hold-ups. Sho has not hid but one
in the past 10 days.
Old Ireland still retains hor spirit
of independence. Individually and
collectively, her citizens always speak
and act their sentiments.
It is suggested that there are more
hold-ups reported in Pendleton than
actually occur. The explanation is
given thnt it has become so fashion
able to got held up nowadays that in
order to be instyle one must be held-tin.
The beef merger proposition is be

This is thought to be on acotint of the

the foolish sermon preached in his

President Roosevelt has not pro
posed to himself or to a nation to kill
the modem giant. He sees a great
deal of good in trusts, and would pro
ceud cautiously in dealing with them.
But even if he had proclaimed mor
tal combat, the stone In his sling Is so
small and the range at which he proposes-
to hurl it Is so long that not
only would Monopoly's skull bo quite
safe from the misBile. but the giant
would roar with laughter at the pre
sumption of his harmless antagonist.
The president's pebble the only
one on the beach that he views with
pride and confidence Is an amend
ment to the constitution giving the
sovereign nation supervision of the
trusts and other monopolies. News
papers that are friendly to the presi
dent have elaborately proved that
such an amendment cannot possibly
be adopted, under the most favorable
circumstances, in less than five years. I
Vet nothing Is needed to prove the ab
solute Impossibility of securing the
ratification of such nn amendment, j
not In five years but ever, boyond the
fact, as shown in the laBt congress,
that the democrats are opposed to it
as an uncalled-for surrender of the re
served rights of the states, and the
other fact that the most influential re
publicans In the senate are against
it because it would hurt their best
friends and deprive their states of
revenues that greatly reduce taxes on
To imagine that with those influ
ences and the enormous power of the
corporations thomsolves arrayed
against the amendment It could over
command a two-thirds vote in congress
and secure ratification by three-fourths
of the states is to believe the incredi
ble. The Rev. Mr. Washburn's modern
David will nover slay Monopoly with
that sling and pebble. He might as
well try o kill - mountain lion with
a potato pop-gun. No wonder Mr.
Roosevelt hung his head under such
a sermon. If the "cuss words" that
he thought on this occasion woro to
to lie printed or spoken, even the most
sanguine clerical flatterer would sor
rowful admit that ho had taken a
terrible "fall from grace." Now York-

The Iowa convention resolved in
favor of "any modification of the tnrlff
schedules that may be required to pre
vent their affording shelter to monop

been made, after h heated discussion,
unless the Iowa republicans had good
reason to know that some of the tariff
schedules "do nfford sheltor to mo
nopoly," The far m prs cannot buy a
reaper or a plough or .n roll of barbed
wire, n barrel of sugnr- or content, a
box of tin-plate or a foot of Iron pipe

Iown Is not the onlv state In which '
tlio republicans have declnred In favor '
of the repeal of protection to monop
olies. Minnesota. Oregon and Idnho
adopted resolutions looking to this
remedy. The Intter state was par
ticular emphatic, declaring that
"many of the industries of the coun
try have outgrown tlteir infancy." nnd 1
favoring "a levlslon of the tariff with,
out unreasonable delay which will
place upon the free list every article
controlled by nny monopoly, nnd such
other articles nnd products as are be-'
vend the need of protection."
No democratic convention has gone
beyond this. The resolution adopted
by the democratic congressmen ,
which Speaker Henderson frantically
denounces as "frw-trnde poison"
was much more moderate, calling only
"A measure to reduce the duties -on
all nrticles nnd commodities nianufac-1
