The criminal court of Copenhagen has

During the debate, Mr. Bezell, a member

"A Doll's House," Ibsen's famous dra

voyage from Austria to the English me

her role. The papers of Cairo highly
praise the performance, which made a
great impression on the audienoe.
In the mineral mining districts of Nor

recently taken plaoe, the young lads of
15 and 16, forming the roligioua prepara
tory class for the sacramental rite of con

the established Lutheran church, have
seemingly caught the socialistic ideas of
their seniors. At one of their class meet
ings, instead of listening to the spiritual
exhortation of their pastor, the Rev. D.
Erhmdson, they read aloud an article
printed in the Social Democrat about the
reverend doctor himsell and when he re
quested one of the boyb to leave tbey all
rose and left, staying away for an hour,
during which they repa.red to the work

What Mr. E. V. Judd, of II. C. Judil Root,
Thinks of Future PrleeH for Territory
Wouls-Otuer Wool News.
Mr. E. Y. Judd, of the firm of H. O.
Judd & Boot, Hnrtford, Conn., is with us
again, looking after the large and exten
sive interests of bis firm in this locality.
The firm is undoubtedly one of the larg
est, oldest and strongest commission
bouses in the East and, we are satisfied,
stand foremost in amount of wool han
dled in this seotion. Mr. Judd has just
arrived from San Francisco, whore they
have a brunch house, and expects to re
main in this section for several weeks.
Though rather enrly, he says, to pre
dict the ruling valuations for Eastern
Oregon wools, still from every indica
tion, both abroad and from the eastern
seaboard, one is safe in saying that the
price of our loDg stapled and fine worst
ed wools, such as one finds largely in this
market, has reached the lowest notch.
Not that we should look for any great or
rapid advance in prices, but that any
ohange must surely be for the better and
that we shall see, duiing the next sixty
days, a gradual hardening of prices.
Australian wools, at the recent sales,
fully reoovered from the deoline of the
previous oue, whioh should cause activ
ity among Oregon wools aud tend to
bring them more than ever into favor the
coming season.
The market thus far at San Fruucisoo
has been largely on a sampling order,
buyers wishing to have forward as soon
as possible, representative lots that they
could place before their trade, line
scoured Oregon wool is quoted there at
50o, f. o. b., beiDg about five (5) cents
lower than the price of a year ago. This
would mean from two to three cents on
the grease pound below the price quoted
last year. Though possibly showing a
shade greater decline than the Eastern
market, still two cents off from the high
est point reached last season, would be f
fair baBis of calculation, judging from
sales made reoently in Hartford.
Of course one must take into oonsider
ation that everything points toward a
lighter shrinkage of wool this year,
whinh nhould in a measure offset the de
oline in price. Hhould look for a Bteady
trade all the season, with increased de
mand as the season advances.

A vote oast for principle is never
thrown away.
The people's party is not for this cam
paign alone. It is now only beginning
its work.
"Monopoly has the republican party
in one pooket and the democratic party
in the other pocket." Rev. T. Dewitt
The working class of people have at
last awakened to a realization of the faot
that if they hope to ever settle the labor
problem they must begin to act at once.
Old-party leaders will soou find that
the people have begun to use their heads
as well as their hands, and that demo
cratic and republican sermons are no
longer swallowed without salt.
Several of the demooratic congress
men have, since the vote on the silver
bill, openly deolared their intention to
support the people's party ; whereat the
democratic leaders gnash their teeth and
crack the party whip.
Iioscoe Conklin, the stalwart of the
stalwart republican senators, in debate
in the United States senate, said : "There
has been no progressive act of legisla
tion in the interests of the common peo
ple in a score of years."
Grand Army men, please take notice
that Gen. James B. Weaver, the able ad
vocate of the people's party principles,
introduced and labored earnestly for the
bill to pay the soldiers the difference be
tween the depreciated currency in whioh
they were paid and gold.
T. V. Powderly says: "Those who be
lieve that the government should own
and operate the railroads and telegraphs
should net run the risk of being side
tracked by switching to one side or the
other, but should keep right iu the mid
dle of the road."
The people have been goaded past en-
duranoe by the unjust acts of the old
party leaders and they no longer fear to
spoak and act for themselves. They
know who is responsible for their pres
ent oondilion and now rise in their
strength for a reform in the system that
is oppressing them.
Money hoars the same relation to the
people of a nation that the blood bears
to the human system. Contract the cur
rency and the business of the nation suf
fers, the effeot being more apparent up
on the poorer olasses. There is not suf
ficient circulating medium in the United
States, and one of the demands of the
people's party is that it be increased.
Through the republican and demooiat-
io machines the plutooruts rule the Unit
ed States with a merciless band and the
people oan see no hope to obtain justice
aud freedom under either of the old par
ty banners. Is it strange that thinking
men renounoe such party fealty and en
ter upon a oampaign to right the wrongs
that have been bo unsoruoulously thrust
upon them?
In Texas the people's party movement
amounts to almost a landslide, and the
Fort Worth Gazette, a democratic organ,
The people's party movement is push
ed with an energy and njstem hitherto
unknown in pernios. It is Bheer mad
ness to ignore this menace, or to treat it
as another greenhaok craze, to vauixh as
rapidly as it dime. It is a movement
with large energies to pusn it, una with
undisclosed resources to back it. It is
using with no little effect the treacher
ous oourse of congress upon the finan
cial issue and the seeming indorsement
by the legislature of Mr. Mills' views on
the subject. Leading Southern senators,
inoluding Mr. Lake, have openly ex
pressed the opinion that the democratic
party is likely to lose electoral votes in
the South because of the fate of the
lilaud bill. It is juFtt us well to face the
danger in Texas and to prepare to avert
The members of the alliance aud the
people's party stand upon a platform
that uppeals to the common sense of ev.
ery voter. In all probability the battle
will be a long and bitter one, for the
plutooruts and leaders of the old parties
will not give up their control without a
struggle, But right rind justice will
prevail. We have not acted without
counting the cost. It is better to make
an effort now for ourfelves than to culm
ly await serfdom, which will surely be
our fate if we do not avert it. We are
fighting for every blessing that freedom
gives and against the ourse that slavery
entails. We do not seek the rich man's
gold. We do not want something for
nothing. We want simple justioe. We
ohject to being "legally" robbed. We
stand out for olear-out principles thai
are just and honorable, and for reforms
that are essentiul to the well being ol
the whole people.

Since our first visit to this (tbe best
part of Morrow county) some three
months ago, thousands of acres of new
land have been broken.
The present indications point to the
fact that the coming harvest will be the
largest and most profitable in the history
of the country. This means something.
It rneans there will be thousands of tons
of bright gruin to be marketed this year
and double that quantity next year.
This farming distriot needs some more
efficient means of transportation and if
Heppner merchants would hold the val
uable trade in sight, she must take
active measures to secure better roads or
a railroad. Yes, that is strung talk, but
inside of two years a railway will oonnect
this great farming belt with the Colum
bia. It must oome and the careful
business man oannot stop the mighty
ourrent but he may in some measure
direct its course.
It oosts today over tweuty-five oents
per bushel to ship wheat to Portland;
full one third of average market prioe.
The distance is not much over two hun
dred miles. Is this a fair division of the
profits of lubor? Is there any justioe in
oalling men "oalamity howlers" that are
opposed to such oonditions? lias a
man any right to "kick" on railway
tariffs when the freight on a two-horse
wagon is only a few dollars more than
the prioe of n wagon at the factory?
Who Bays this ain't so? Milhurn, South
Bend, Bacine and Mishawaka farm
wagons are listed nt the factory at from
f.i7 to $53 and if any of you can buy an
ordinary farm wagon for less than from
$95 to 8110, please tell where in Morrow
Co. the man keeps the si ore.
Farmers are accused of being dissatis
fied and of oomplaiuing without cause.
Examiue these conditions. The next
man who represents Eastern Oregon in
congress will do well to look after the
interests of the oommon people. These
people want an open river or lower
freight rutes aud they will have it.
Ia there anything more plain than the
evidence of "jobbery" on the Columbia
river at the Cascades where for thirteen
years tbe government has been working
(?) to give tbe people an opu riyer?
The "linger prints" aro visible ot the
same agency that pays annually to the
Canadian Pacific railway company a
subsidy of nine hundred thousand dol
lars to let the freight business of the
Pacifio Northwest alone. Who indirect
ly pays this enormous sum? The work
ing people.
Every man, woman and child, every
agenoy public or private, every news
paper iu the laud should be arrayed
against this outrage. Every publio man
should pledge himself to faithful work
for reform in this direction and if ho
neglects his duty, on his return he
should be tarred and feathered.
Never was there more interest man
ifested in a political contest and never
was anticipating the result such an
enigma. Men, women ana children all
know something of the great issue now
pending. Even tbe people turn religious
meetings into political controversies, us
was the case Bt Eight Mile Center today.
Beal estate is changing hands Borne
and people are beginning to realize that
this is a "sure enough" farming country.

box. On the night of tlio 15th iust., he
fired at the calf. With a human cry the
calf staggered upon its hind legs and fell
to tbe ground. Buuuing up to tbo sup
posed animal Mmpmun discovered he
bud shot and killed a young man who
