The irUrine licht of publicity is

the most effectual method of com
bating official corruption. The
airing of th rotteneBS ot the baking
powder conspiracy in Missouri is
showing up some men of -national
reputation. Likewise the Oregon

the work in grand ekape.
England. Japan the United
States and the whole "capoodle"
may protest against Russian oc

can they do about it? Russia has
so thoroughly colonized that part
of China that virtually, if no in

test to molest Russia in her great

entitled to the same wages that a
more skilled one receives, simply
because he is eligible to meet as a

other hand, let's see. No matter

jump in price, simply because a
few could dictate the supply, while
the price of manufacture, because
of labor-saving ,machioery and
other improvements, gradually
fell. This condition of affairs gave
birth to labor unions. Capital
may say: "I can starve longer
than labor," but labor can retort:
"The masses are with me and the
