The opponents of protection
never grow weary of asserting
that the Dingley tariff is the
.great trust producer. If this
were true it might be accepted
s a strong argument against
tariffs embodying any measure
whatever of protection. But it
is not true, at least not true of
all combinations loosely classed
Standard oil, railway mergers,
the beef trust, ice trusts and
many others more or less guilty
-of extortion and other acts in
violation of the rights of the
people receive no benefit what
ever from protection; yet these
are the mischievous trusts
against which the loudest and
best grounded complaints are
Of the trusts said to be foster
ed by protection the so-called
Steel Trust is held up as a strik
ing example of the pernicious
influence of protection in creat
ing trusts. When, however, we
bear in mind that the manufac
turers of steel had protection for
many years before a trust was
.-formed we may justly doubt the
influence of protection in the
-creation of trusts. This doubt is
further strengthened by the re
jection that there are manufac
turers which have long possess
ed the maximum rate of protec
tion but which have made no ef
.f ort to form a trust.
It has always been asserted by
protectionists, and as vigorously
denied by their opponents, that
protection would stimulate com
petition which would bring the
celling price of manufactured
commodities down to the lowest
point and keep it there. This is
just what it has done and is do
ing. Competition became so
fierce in some lines of manufac
tures that it destroyed profit for
the manufacturer. This was
markedly true of the manufac
ture of glass and steel.
To insure reasonable profits
manufacturers were compelled
to economize in production and
to avoid destructive competition.
They cannot destroy healthful
competition so long as protec
tion fosters and encouarges it.
Were protection destroyed cap
ital invested in manufacturing
would quickly find means to de
stroy all competition.
The true remedy then for the
vils practiced by the trusts is
not found in the destruction of
protection and consequently of
-competition, but in directly com
pelling the trusts to refrain from
all acts in restraint of inter-state
commerce and trade. This is
just what the republican party
is doing encouraging and pre
serving healthful competition.
xi 'Tis a mad world, my mas
ter." Yea, verily! Of all the
various forms of fanaticism the
hardest to deal with - springs
from a religious source- No
sensible man, believer or non
believer, will combat a good,
hj thy, well-principled religion.
But the existence of a religion
so fanatical as to cause its ad
herents to commit acts of vio
lence and immorality is deplored
by all sensible people, both in
the church and out of it.
The citizens of this community
have a true insight of the evils
resulting from a frenzied state
which previously existed here in
the name of r -.-Hion Holy Rol
lerism. CertL... our people,
of our ministers, i retold the end
with considerable accuracy.
First ot all there was a degenera
tion of all moral sense. To rea
son, argue or plead with these
moral degenerates was to labor
in vain. They pursued their
course in a state which they
were pleased to term religious
fervor, heedless of all things,
good or bad, and with utter dis
regard of the entreaties of rela
tives and friends.
Interference by local author
ities resulted in nothing and the
orgies of the Holy Roller prophet
and his followers became wilder
and more damnable- Above all
things there is supposed to be
religious freedom in this coun
try and for this reason it is more
difficult to check an evil growing
in the name of God than one
claiming not the support of
diety. The privilege granted in
this country giving the individ
ual the right to "worship God ac
cording to the dictates of his
own conscience" is often abused
to the shame of decent communi
ties. So, in the course of Holy Rol
lerism we find a calendar of
crimes leading to the killing of
Edmund Creffield, the Holy Rol
ler "Joshua." He was killed by
the brother of one of his female
victims. Of the killing, of Cref
field in Seattle and the trial and
acquittal of the slayer, George
H. Mitchell, together with all
the nauseating details, most peo
ple are familiar. Thursday even
ing the country was shocked by
the intelligence that Esther
Mitchell, the girl ruined by
Creffield, had shot her own
brother and killed him.
That this is madness, not relig
ion, seems more fitting to us.
True, all these crimes result
from what some irny term relig
ion, but it is not so. It resulted
from madness, mental and moral
depravity, and permeating it all
it seems there was not lacking a
The question is, "How much
cussedness is to be allowed in
the name of religion?'' If the
line indicating personal responsi
bility is not to be drawn before
murder has been committed,
what protection has any man?
It would seem that a law defin
ing the difference between true
religion and religious fanaticism,
providing adequate punishment
for the latter, is now in order.
The protection of -the innocent,
pure and worthy, both in and
out of the church, should be par
amount to all other consider
ations. MATRON'S PART.
The killing of George H.
Mitchell by his sister, Esther
Mitchell, suggests criminal neg
ligence somewhere. On all
hands the mental condition of
Miss Mitchell was known to have
been such as to cause apprehen
sion. It she really was unbal
anced on religion she was dan
gerous, if she was just purely
vicious she was no less danger
ous, i he same must be said of
Mrs. Creffield. To allow either
to possess a revolver was to
make it possible for them to
commit a crime. Any way one
looks at the matter it is apparent
that their mental condition was
such that they were dangerous.
From reports sent out it seems
that the police matron at the
Seattle bastlie sympathized with
these young women while they
5 were in her charge. This seems
a very indiscreet act on the part
of the matron and one she should
have been wiser than to commit.
To what degree did her sympa
thy count in the killing of
George Mitchell? It may have
cut quite a figure to judge from
what is reported.
William Jennings Bryan makes
the statement that he has not
changed since his former tries
for the presidency. We all know
what is said of a man who never
changes his mind, and Mr.
Bryan's denial of a possible
change excites one's pity rather
than condemnation. It would
have been better had he changed.

Farmers' Institute Withycombe
Quoted by Oregonian.
'The farmers' institue at
Burns; Harney County, July 2
and 3, was largely attended by
farmers and stockmen from all
over the country and the interest
throughout all of the sessions was
very keen," said Dr. Withycombe
to an Oregonian reporter. "Prof.
A. I. Knisely spoke on alkali
soils and plant food and took, up
the subjects of general agricul
ture and forage crops.
"I was simply amazed at the
magnitude, beauty and richness
of Harney Valley and its trib
utary valleys. This valley is an
empire within itself and some
day will easily sustain a half
million of people.
"For example,' Harney Valley
comprises approximately 500,000
acres of fertile soil and its trib
utary, Blirzen Valley 128,000
acres; Diamond Valley 92,000
acres; Lower Silver Creek Valley.
92,000 acres; Upper Silver Creek
Valley, 7500 acres; Silvies River
Valley, 9500 acres; Happy Valley
9500 acses, or a total of 838,500
acres of rich vallev land.
"This immense area of rich
agricultural land is principally
utilized at present for grazing
and producing hay from native
grasses. It is feasible with irri
gation to convert this whole area
into one great alfalfa meadow.
In fact without irrigation, under
good systems of husbandry, this
section will produce immense
quantities of grain, alfalfa, hay
and other farm crops. A railroad
and an influx of farmers will
make this section blossom as the
"On our return an institue was
held at Rock Creek, Baker
County, on July 7. The institute
was held in a very pretty grove
and aboct 300 people were in at
tendance. A very pleasing lea
ture of this institue was the ex
cellent display of grains,
totage plants, fruits and vegeta
bles, thus demonstrating conclus
ively the productivity of the soil.
"In addition to a well-rendered
local .programme of music and
speaking, Mr. A. P. Stover, re
presenting the National Depart
ment of Agriculture, spoke on
'Problems, in Irrigation: A. E.
Ivoder, alw representing she Ni- '
tional Dput;ncnt of Ayricuhurv,
addressed the people oa 'Our
Public Highway?; Professor A.
L Knislev, , Alkali Soils; Prof.
F. L Kent, Modern Dairying,'
and m sell ou 'General Ajjncui
ture.' "Rock Creek is located in the
Powder River Valley aud"is one
of the most beautiful spots in our
state. This section furnishes an
excellent example as to the value
of our mountain streams. The
Baker City Light & Power Com
pany's plant is located on this
stream. There is a fall of 940
ft-et, which gives a 410-pounH
pressure to the square inch f
nozzle. This plaut can develop
i5oo horse-power, which is trans
mitted to Baker City and Bourne
over 29 miles of high-tension line.
One mile below the plant the
stream furnishes -the power for a
good-sized flouring mill and is
afterward utilized for irrigation,
supply water for 15,000 acres,
thus illustrating the immense
value of our mountain streams
when properly utilized."
Want the Road.
Residents of Alsea Vallev are very
anxious to strike upon a scheme whereby
they may be enabled to build what will
prove a good winter road over Alsea
Mountain. AVade'Malone was in Corval
lis, Saturday, looking into the problem
and seeing what may be accomplished
under the law.
Attorney E. R. Bryson was consulted
and be finds that the residents cf any
road district can go ahead and build a
highway and then pay for it by voting a
tax upon their real estate. The levy must
be made upon the land within two miles
of the road built. This has not been the
object of the Alsea people. They desire
to bond their district in order to raise
funds at once. Mr. Bryson, while of the
opinion that a law grauting this privilege
would be wise and proper, finds no au
thority under the statutes granting such
The county court has been consulted
in the matter and is disposed to help in
every way possible when a feasible plan
shall have been adopted. That the resi
dents of Alsea are badly in need of this
road goes without saying. A good win
ter rjad across this mountain would
benefit residents of the entire . county.
What They Received.
The county court at the Jan
uary term levied a tax of one
tenth of a mill on the dollar for
library purposes. The amount
raised by this levy was $367.
