. It seems that the time is ripe
for a little more protection for
the legitimate trademan. In
'many ways thing3 are rapidly
approaching a crisis as a result
of competition, which in reality
is not competition but a sort of
piracy among tradesmen.
THe doctor must take his de
gree and be -duly registered in
the state in which he essays to
practice before he is allowed by
law to hang out his shingle. Just
so with the dentist, the druggist,
and many others.down even to the
man who holds your nose and
shaves you. Yet there are many
businesses, most legitimate in
their way, that are at the . mercy
i of any person who may go at the
business. The fact that a man
may spend a life-time at a busi-
. ness, or trade, and be master of
it from "A to. 'izzard'" seems to
be of no consequence. That he
, may have a large capital invest
ed cuts no figure he has no pro
tection, and his trade and busi
ness are open to ruination by the
first "trade pirate" who cares to
; commit the act of trade prostitu
tion., According to our present
laws, any young fellow can spend
a few mqnths at a trade, take it
. into his head to start, go to work
at starvation prices, ruin himself
and others and lead the people to
Relieve that the ligitimate busi
ness man has been imposing on
them, in fact, robbing them for
- So long as thisjeondition of "free
for all and no responsibility to
the general public exists there is
not much inducement offered to
an apprentice to undertake the
mastery of any trade. Instead
of good, legitimate craftmen,
of responsibility, there is evi.-
dence of, Vblacksmithing" and
irresponsibility on every hand,
' This is a sad state of affairs and
is -worthy consideration . by
our statesmen. ,
Why is one business, or trade
more worthy of consideration and
protection than another? There
. are .professions unprotected by
any sort of legislation whatever
that are as deserving of great
. consideration as any of those at
' present on the favored list.
CHINA PLAYS GAME.
Because the United States gov
ernment does not see fit to en
courage the immigration of the
almond-eyed celestial from the
land of the dragon it seems that
China has about concluded ' to
boycott our products. From the
Chinese point of view this is all
very well, but it is bad for us, as
we have been anticipating great
things for the West as the
result, of an increased Oriental
trade. - "-
We had a right to discrimin
ate against a class so unfavorable
to our social life and conditions,
such as China afforded us. There
is no denying China's right to
trade witli whom she pleases.
But it makes a bad mess any way
you ; look at it from a Yankee
standpoint. To be compelled to
admit within our borders a horde
of rat-eating heathens would be
'an enormous price to pay for
China's patronage. Indeed, it
seems too dear at such a price,
. There is reason for the present
state of affairs, and those who
are wire-pulling in favor of . Ger
. many can give the key to the sit
uation. Little by little Germany"
has -been stealing- Chinese patron
age irom us. bne nas had a
grievance: against this .country
because of our tarLi laws and is
now at the dpuble game " of tak
ing a market from us and gain
ing one for herself at the same
stroke. . -' - . '

In accordance with the provis
ions of the Corvallis Water Bill
said commission met last Friday
evening and' were called to .order
by Senator Avery. At this time
permanent organization ,was ef
fected. P. Avery was .elected
president; S. L. Kline, clerk or
secretary of 'the committee, and
E. Woodward, treasurer. All'
members of the wattr committee

We are informed that Engin
eer Lr. JNI. Miller has based his
estimate of coit on i and a frac
tion' miles ot piping within the
city limits ; 16 miles main pipe, from
Kock Creek to this citv:a reservoir
on Baldymountain of 250,000 gal
lons, sBaldy being about four
miles from this city; 40 hydrants
in various parts of the city'
against 9 at present, and a . pro
vision tor 40 more. .
A mass meeting for ; citizens
was called tor last night at the
court house, at which time Mr,
Miller was detailed to Undertake
to explain the water question and
his estimates. It is understood
that according to his figures the
system can be installed on the
lines above-mentioned for some
thing less than "the $75,000 the
people are; allowed to bond the
city for under the provisions of
the water bill. ' ' 1
Webster's Unabridged. ;
A few days ago a gentleman
had' an. occasion to borrow, Dr..
Cathey's'dictiocary. On the fly
leaf he noted that the dictionary,'
unabridged, was a gift and that
it had been given the doctor in
1875 30 years ago. , He made
inquiry and learned that at - that
time ' the doctor, then a very
voung manw was a member of the
choir of St. David's Parish, East
Portland. The- doctor, was then
attending the high- school and
had no idea that he would ever,
be able to study medicine, ' He
was just recoveringfrom a severe
spell of sickness and a . fellow
student called on him. '
To this fellow -student Dr.
Cathey gave $5 with the request
that he get a dictionary for him,
the doctor. A few days later he
received a copy ot weosters'
Unabridged Dictionary and his
$5 was'returned at the same time.
The book was -the gift' of three
young friends, Messrs. Williams,1
josepni, ana McCall all youpg
students at that time; and not one
btrange as it may seem 'every
one of them took up the study of
medicine and took their degress,
Drs.: Williams and Tosephi each
became well known through their
connection with the state asvlum
for the insane in .Salem. ' So it
was tha't Dri Cathey came by his
unabridged, b"t bpw strange is
life! That all four of these young
friends should later bec6me . well
known and successful physicians
is something very
much , out of
