Mr. Reames is a pleasant, middle-
aged gentleman, and a gentleman
who makes friends readily. From
here he went to Monmouth and
Dallas. Among other things Mr.
The most important questions
before the people are those growing
out -f relations between capital
and labor. . He referred to the or
ganizations of capital into trusts,
that this was exclusion due to the
tariffs that made it possible for cor
porations to 6ell cheaper abroad
than at home; that these organiza
tions of capital were for the control
of labor as well as of the markets;
read Mr. Tongue's last utterances
upon the subject, in which Mr.
Tongue had taken the same view;
showed this was the doctrine of the
president and of the rank and file
of both parties; claimed that the
tariffs should be removed from
trust articles at once. He advoca
ted an open market for the Philip
pines; showed that they are fast
filling with our own people;- that
we will soon control the business
there; that through the business
there we will be able to give them
republican form of government;
that we cannot have lactones nere
without a market;, that Manila
gives us a gateway for markets in
the Orient; the tariff between the
islands and our western coast must
be removed or we cannot obtain a
market there; referred to adminis-
tratiou of Goy. Chamberlain and
the general satisfaction same was
giving to all classes; said that at
the governor's suggestion and

The lat.t meeting of the T6ik
county teachers was held at Mc
Coy Saturday, May 2, with a .good
The program opened with a very
interesting talk on "Grammar" by
Prof. D. A. Grout, principal of the
Park school, Portland, followed by
Prof. Reynolds, who gave some ex
cellent methods on teaching spell
ing. The teachers then repaired to
the dining hall and partook of an
excelleat lunch which was served
by the ladies of McCoy.
The opening number in the after
noon was another interesting talk
by Prof. Grout, in which he showed
the value of the individual investi
gation of the pupil, after which
Prof. T, J. Newbiil presented the
subject, "Geography" in a very
able concise and interesting
manner. Supt. L. R. Traver,
of the Salem schools, gave a very
comprehensive talk on "Educa
tion," Mr. Lewis, a former teacher
of McCoy, gaye a thoughtful dis
cussion on "Psychology."
After this a vote of thanks was
tendered the people of McCoy for
the hospitality and kindness shown
the visiting teachers.
Sunt. Starr has spared no pains
to make the institutes this year a
success from first to last and he is
truly deserving of much praise.
