I private interests seek vested and
perpetual control of water powers
through state as opposed to federal
legislation. Singularly enough, the
I time-honored doctrine of "state's

the Journal and favored by the Ore-
goiuan. The Journal further claims
that the recent convention at Portland
which resolved against the Ferris bill
was packed in the interests of "Big
Business," and that it is doubtful if
toe disinterested delegates were even
acquainted with the provisions of the
Ferris bill, copies of which were not
available at the session. Its views are

NEW TKJfi'KKA.VCE CAMPAIGN.
New Tork la on the Job with a new
temperance campaign, which some
newspapers are pronouncing eminent'
sensible. It is the outgrowth of a
plan originated by ' the Churches of
Christ of America. No religious metn.
od wilt be used in the campaign. No
effort will be made, to secure legisla
tion prohibiting the sole of liquor.
The sponsors of the movement believe
that voluntary abstinence to the only
means by which Intemperance may be
abolished, and their purpose will be
to demonstrate to the Individual the
loss In efficiency due to excessive
drinking. A committee of 100 prom
ineat financial. Industrial end labor
union men will conduct the campaign.
Albert R. Rogers, an organiser well
known for his work in connection
with the 8t Louis World's fair. Is he
active head of the movement. '
Regarding the movement a commit
tee tnember has this to say: "The ar

Is sa entirely 'common sense' propo
sition, carried on with the most mod

We shall make no use of the 'heart

kind. What we shall do la to show
every one we can reach that If he
drinks to sxceas he Is reducing his
anility st making a living."
New Tork newspapers are welcom
ing the new movement on the ground
that It Is a thankless task to attempt
to elevate social standards by panel ng
radical laws. Ohio already haa taken
up the new movement, and a society
along the same lines has been organ
ized in Cleveland. -
