Compare t; ; conditions of this
country t ay with its affairs
when the I: publican party came
into power. During the last forty
years her people have learned to
produce and manufacture every
thing necessary for man, have
regained the home market from
the hands of Europe, and sent
their products to all parts of the
nation instead of borrowers from
foreign countries, have paid back

forty million balance of trade
against them, in 1876, the net
balance of trade in favor of the
United States now being over
three billion, five hundred and
eighty-four million, and increas
ing at the rate of four hundred
millions per annum, resulting in
an increase of the wealth of the
country five fold, and so that
labor commands much larger
wages and a greater share of the
profits of industry than prevails
in any other part of the world.
During the progress of this great
evolution, in the industrial and
commercial affairs of our common
country and necessarily as a
means leading to these grand re
sults, individual effort has given
away to combined effort, the
burden of such enormously large
undertakings "was too great for
and held void a combination
between the Northern Securities
Company, the Great Northern
Railway Company and the North
ern Pacific Railway Company,
a combination to control the
operations of several railroad
companies under one manager
ment. There will be no trouble
in restraining and properly regu
lating the great corporations and
gigantic trusts as long as the
Republican party guides the
affairs of the nation. In the last
named case involving the rail
road trust, the several democratic
judges of the Supreme Court
sustained the- trust while the
Republican members of the
court being in majority made up
the decision which held the trust
void, thereby protecting the
people's interest. It is along
Republican lines that we must
look for relief upon all great
questions in favor of the people.

At the I. O. O. F. cemetery
Tuesday at 2 p. m.' was interred

which was brought from San Jose,

Mr. Belkap was an Oregon
pioneer of 1848, settling in Ben
ton county, in the old Belknap
settlement, near Monroe. He
resided in Salem from 1864-7 fr
the purpose of sending his child
ren to the Willamette University,
and of working at his trade. He
erected several of the "early im
portant residences and assisted in
the building ol the present uni
versity building, while his chil
dren attended the old Oregon In
stitute. He was superintendent
of the First Methodist Sundav
School, under the pastorate of
Dr. J. O. Bythe, when the old
wooden building stood where the
brick structure now stands. He
was born in Big Lick county,
Ohio, October 5, 1832,. and died
in San Jose, Calir., December 29,
1904. He lived a long, honor
able and useful life, and was
held in high esteem by all who
knew him.
His wife, Mrs. Thirsa Bel
knap still survives him. His
living children are Dr. H. P.
Belkuap, of Pnneville, Or.. H
T. Beiknap, L,os Gaios,' Calif.,
Sylvester I. Belknap. Dr. V. C.
Belknap, and Eibert A. Belknap,
all of Prairie City, Or. , and Grace
Belknap, of San Jose, Calif.
Among those who came to be
present at the burial were Web
ster C. Belknap, Edward H. Bel
knap, Mrs. Addie Kyle, and

Or. The body was accompanied
to Salem by H. T. Belknap,

stead great corporations, trade
unions and all kinds of combina
tions of capital and labor were
formed, resulting in a net work
of railroads running all over the
country and plentifully supplied
with the largest factories in the
world, all owned by so many
corporations. At first these
various corporations vied with
each other in healthy competition
to excel in gaming the most
; , trade. Later came a disposition
among them to form combinations
so as to limit their product, com
bine to control prices and pre
vent competition in restraint of
trade. In 1890 a1 Republican
Congress passed the Anti-Trust
Law, "to protect trade and com
merce against unlawful restraints
and monopolies." Soon after
wards, however, the country
placed President Cleveland in
. charge of the nation's affairs,
and his At orney-General, Mr.
Olney, gave it his opinion that
the Anti-Trust Law was uncon-
stitutional and' therefore could
not be enforced. Later, how
ever, Republican presidents were
elected and several suits were
brought in the United States
Courts which sustained the Anti
Trust Law. In 1898 the Supreme
Court held illegal and void the
Joint Traffic Agreement entered
into by 31 railroads fixing rates
and fares between Chicago and
the Atlantic Coast. In 1899 the
United States Supreme Court
also held void an agreement made
by six corporations on the price
and sale of cast iron pipes and
agreeing not to bid against each
other in 36 states and territories.
The court also held void in 1899
a' combination of 14 coal com
panies wherein they agreed not
to sell coal for less than the
specified price. In 1902 the
court held void the "Beef Trust"
composed of the principal buyers
of live stock and shippers of
dressed meats wherein they
agreed not to bid against each
other and in 1902 the court dis
solved the . Federal Salt Trust
which for a long time had
doubled and trebled the price of
