Ono Cause or It.
The expense of living to-day is
one of the main reasons for
strikes and labor troubles. Port
This is so. Our social re
lations are proportionately dif
ferent from what they were a
generation ago, and that periods
of discontent occur now in our
sparsely settled condition argues
gloomily for the prospect -when
the country shall become more
"We are go far creatures of habit
that we drive on along certain
lines unless something pushes us
off them. "We once had the habit
of saving; we have been driven off
that line by several conspiring
forces. One of them is the
abundance of natural bounties
given to this people. Along trith
this goes the effect of numerous
suddenly gotten fortunes, and the
large gains that have come from
trade, invention, and the rise of
real estate. A multitude of peo
ple becoming rich in a few years
have set an example of free spend
ing, which has been contagious.
Our demecratic society has done
the rest. "We must all ride in
parlor cars, sleep in first-class ho
tels, wear good new clothes, have
Queen Anne houses and furniture,
because each 'of us is as ffood as
another, and there must not be
any external evidences of our
being poorer than our neighbors.
So it has come about that many of
us reverse "Wesley's rule and read
it. "Spend all you can;" for it is
only by the largest possible spend
ing that we can "keep up appear
ances." The growth of vast fortunes
might have been expected to
break up the race for equality, lor
surely the millionaires must easily
keep ahead of the rest of us; but
a close observer sees that we re
sent this distinction, and that a
protest against great wealth, with
its special privileges, is at the
heart of the anti-monopoly feel
ing. "Wo got it fixed in our heads
that we must be socially equal,
and we tried to vindicate our
principle; and we are deeply ag
grieved because a few hundreds or
thousands of families have gotten
beyond the reach of our purses.
So it has come about that oar no
tions of what we need to spend
are socially regulated . 1 1 is not
our idea of comfort, conceived by
ourselves, but the social standard
of comfort that rules in our feel
ings. "We are unhapp3T if wo can
not keep up with others; if we
must not have what they have; if
we must openly show that we are
getting shabby and out at the el
bows. Most of the fathers would
have laughed at such griefs as
those from which their children
suffer, not because they were
coarse creatures, but because they
had not the habit of measurinjr
happiness in social measures. AVe
have this habit, and it has sup
planted the habit of thrift which
our fathers had.
A caiileguam of the 2d says:
The breach between the govern
ments of France and Germany is
widening every hour. There is a
journalistic war of increasing bit
terness. The Englise government
holds aloof. The diplomatic in
trigues for an alliance between
Russia, Denmark, Sweden and
Turkey, in opposition to the Aus-tro-Germah
league continue. The
visit of the czar and czarina to
Copenhagen will bring together
the prince and princes of "Wales,
the king of Greece and the king
of Sweden as a royal family party,
but the meeting is intended as a
counter demonstration to the gath
ering of princes around the em
peror of Germany at the autumn
maneuvers. It is reported that
the prince of "Wales favors an An
glo-Russian alliance. Public feel
ing in Germany is further exas
perated against France by com
plaints of ill-treatment of German
residents in Pans. An incident
occurred on "Wednesday in the
gardens of the Tuileries at a cir
cus, the owner of which, Herr
Opitz, was uniformed as an old of
ficer of Uhlans, who had served
against France. The crowd
mobbed Opitz, and threatened to
destroy the circus, which was
closed bv the police. Opitz ap
pealed to the German embassy
the French foreign office that such
demonstrations and attacks on
German subjects produce strong,
To show the decisive character
of Villard, a well-authenticated
anecdote is told of him, regarding
the recent raid on the North Paci
fic stocks. "When Oregon Trans
continental touched fifty-six, and
its friends became alarmed, a brok
er rushed into his office and said:
"Mr. Villard, Oregon Transconti
nental has struck, fifty-six!'"
"Has it?" said Mr. Villard. "Then
buy me one thousand shares."
A cab leg E Ail says that an
opinion still prevails of the im
probability of China and France
avoiding a conflict. Both powers
desire to avoid a conflict, but the
underhand tactics of the Chinese
in Tonquin will probably force
France into open hostility, and, if
it is true that the French admiral's
demonstration before Canton was
to bully China, instant war will
In October conventions of rail
ways managers will discuss a much
needed question, that of estab
lishing a uniform standard of
time for railways. The system
proposed divides the country into
belts of fifteen degrees each, each
district taking the time from a
certain, meridian. Seventy-five
degrees west of Greenwich is pro
posed for the eastern roads.
Villard and party reached
Livingstone, Montana, last Friday
night, and after a brief stay went
westward to the spot selected for
the driving of "the last spike,"
that ceremony taking place yester
day morning according to pro
gramme. The "Walla "Walla Union calls
for property qualification on the
part of municipal voters and very
justly argues that men who vote
on city matters should have more
than temporary interest in the re
sult. In' the supreme court at Boston
last Friday, the suit of the Union
Pacific R. R. against the Credit
Mobilier Co., was decided in favor
of the defendent.
