Albany has a hog: case in the
courts that for long and persist
ent litigation bids fair to rival
the famous historical calf case.
Last year four hogs broke out of
some one's enclosure and invaded
somebody's cabbage patch. - They
were taken up; lawsuits, coun
ter suits and appealshave followed,
until now the cause goes to the
circuit court and is likely to reach
the supreme court. The porkers
have long since been butchered
and eaten, but the contest goes
on and on, and the costs have
reached many times the original
value of the property.

Mr. Bryan is doomed to disap
poirtment wherever he tries to
get in touch with practical busi
ness men. He represents princi
ples and conditions antagonistic
to them. They carry responsi
bilities that forbid indulgence in
visionary politics and the whims
of an untried agitator who thinks
only of his own ambitions. They
deal with hard-headed verities,
while Mr. Bryan is addicted to
fad issues that he drops, when
they play out, with a cheerful
air of never - having been ac
quainted with them.
Business men with ballast have
no use for the Bryan fads, and
among business men are includ
ed all who are actively employed.
To the worker who has little
property the matter of employ
ment at remunerative wages is
of supreme importance. Farm
ers have a similar stake- Mr.
Bryan invites campaign contri
butions from these classes. What
for? Can they afford to take
him and his windy pretensions
on blind faith? They cannot
safely risk their means of liveli
hood on a politician who has been
twioe defeated by the people and
who is identified with discarded
issues that he no longer dares to

The citizens of Eugence have
started a movement the object
of which is to secure the greatest
possible protection against the
sale of impure milk and butter
and unhealthful meats in that
city, and the physicians are tak
ing an active part in it. Some
other cities might find it profit
able to follow Eugene's example.
The methods of handling milk
and cream in some places should
be looked into. The writer of
this had occasion to visit an
Oregon creamery not long ago,
and noticed that the employee
who was receiving the cans of
cream from the farmers tested
each can by thrusting a not overly
clean fist into it, then into his
mouth. Such practices are not
pleasant to contemplate by those
who have to use creamery butter,
and we mention the incident only
to emphasize the assertion that
there is need of stringent rules
