HYPOCRISY AND TRAGEDY.
The great Russian tragedy still
holds the boards. The entire
world is a witness to what may
be termed a real tragedy; a pro
duction that is given the world at
the cost of thousands of lives;
one that is devastating the very
garden spots of the empire and
sending refugees in hordes to
foreign shores; a tragedy in
wh:ch the blood of the innocent
is sacrificed as so much water.
And this because the people dare
cry for liberty!
What is between the Russian
masses and liberty, which they
hold dearer than life? To start
with, a czar a vacillating crea
ture, who beyond doubt is the
prey of a select band of fiends
incarnate. Here is the prime
source of the tragedy, the fiends.
The czar is, of himself; so feeble-minded
and purposeless, and
undoubtedly so badly scared ere
now that he would grant liberty
to those whom he calls his sub
jects, but his advisors will not
hear of this. Why will they not
grant this? Because by making
Nicholas a tool they hope to
And through all this great and
bloody struggle we hear of the
prayers of the czar and his min
isters, when they assemble in
their separate places of worship,
that justice and righteousness
may prevail. Ye gods! Prayers
of this nature from men so pol
luted that their very souls, were
they ever wafted to heaven,
would profane that celestial
realm. The hypocrisy of it all !
Meanwhile, they continue to pray
and to kill innocent people.
The masses of Russian subjects
seem to prefer death to oppres
sion that is worse than slavery.
They could gain their liberty if
they but had a leader in their
struggle. Here is an opportunity
for another patriot of the George
Those who follow society do
ings closely will have seen by the
papers that Mr. and Mrs. Nich
olas Longworth have been ten
dered an invitation to visit the
sultan at Constantinople. Due
stress has been placed upon the
"very great honor" bestowed
upon the Longworths on account
of Mrs. Longworth being a
daughter of President Roosevelt.
Can we call ourselves a con
sistent people and act as we do ?
In this country anything of a
polygamous nature will cause our
ladies to catch up their skirts and
trip lightly away for fear of con
tamination. Why are they not
equally careful when aboad ?
Perhaps we are over-inquisitive.
When Gorki visited our shores
recently in company with a wo
man who could not produce a
marriage certificate, he and she
were kicked from one hotel to
another with so much facility by
virtuous Americans that they
soon fled the shores of the land
of the free in disgust. This was
all right, but our men and women
' " J. TCRESON

who hold to ideas of strictest vir
tue and morality at home should
not boast of invitations to visit
the Sultan of Turkey, either
within or without his harem.
King Edward has been granted
a private inspection of William
Jennings Bryan. While the king
is reported as having deported
himself most graciously from a
royal standpoint, we have no
means of knowing what his pri
vate opinion was as the result of
his. scrutiny of the Nebraskan.
But this is not a matter of any
What we desire to call atten
tion to is the abandon and utter
disregard for the sacredness of the
subject by the writer of the dis
patch relating to the meeting
The cablegram in question stated
that the king wore common
clothes." This, to us, with our
American ideas of democracy,
seems an uncalled-for reflection
on his majesty. So long as King
Edward was decently clad it does
not seem proper that his clothes,
any more than the habiliments of
any other man, should be made a
subject for discussion by the
masses. During such period as
King Edward conducts himself
becomingly we shall continue to
consider him just as good as any
body, even though he does wear

Two Corvallis Ladies Make Them
in Chasing T-ain.
The report is that two Corvallis
ladies had a footrace with the mid

from Newport last Wednesday
evening. It seems that the
ladies decided to walk to Phil

shrieked and waved their arms

and proceeded to have a regular Fourth

entrance to the building, took the camp
