The President's Message.
The President's message is very
long. It touches upon many sub
jects and deals with most of them
in a spirit of enlightened wisdom.
Of old-fashioned politics it contains
no trace. From party feeling it is
free. The discussions are based
upon the broad principles of justice
and the conclusions in the main are
such as all right-thinking men
have accepted already or are pre
pared to accept without much de
bate. Corporations still hold the chief
place in his thoughts. -The evils
of unrestricted corporate rule in
business and politics and how to
remedy them he discusses at length.
He begins with the recommenda
tion, in which every honest man
concurs, that corporations should
be forbidden by the law to make
campaign contributions. From
this he passes to the very import
ant question of allowing appeals to
the government iu criminal cases
such as the one iu which Judge
Humphreys gave his famous immu
nity decision. Mr. Roosevelt re
marks that similar, if not identical
cases, have been decided by other
judges quite as contrary t) Judge
Humphreys, and he laments that
all such matters cannot be taken to
the supreme court for final settle
ment. It also disturbs him that a
single district judge against what
may be the judgment of the im
mense majority ol his colleagues
on the bench," may nullify a law
of congress "and then deny to the
government the right to have the
supreme coutt definittly decide the
question." This is indeed an in
tolerable state of things. Mr.
Roosevelt points out that it not on
ly hinders the government in its
efforts to control the corporations,
but it also works direct wrong up
on workingmen who may sue for
justice against wealthy corporate
--sdoers ,v .
i ne rresiuent goes on
it has become the settled policy of
the government to apply the crimi
nal statutes against the predatory
corporations. Every effort was
first made, he remarks, to control
them by civil proceedings, but those
efforts failed. The case is much
like that of the fruit-grower in Web
ster's spelling book who first tried
tufts of grass upon the bad boy in
his apple tree, but finally had to re
sort to the big club. The criminal
law being absolutely the only
means of controlling the corpora
tions, one may discern how import
ant it is that no weak or complaiot
judge should have the power to
thwart the department of justice by
such a ruling as.the one which the
President quotes. Rebates are still
common. Criminal proeecuinKs
have by no means stopped them,
and the government must have
every proper aid lrom congress or
they will continue in the future as
in the past. Portland Oregoniau.
Hopgrowers Heavy Losers.
Oregon City, Or., Dec. 4. The
inability to procure cars is not more
injurious to any one industry than
it is to the hop business, and even
then the grower bears the brunt of
tue loss that ensues. Not with
standing the fact that there are
stored at Oregon City, Aurora aud
Butteville' more than 4000 bales of
choice Valley hops, all branded and
awaiting shipment; buyers are un
able to fill telegraphic orders from
brewers in the East for this crop.
The average grower, in order to
harvest and market his crop, is re
quired to borrow money annually,
paying from 6 to 8 per cent intrav
The producer, under these circum
stances, is unable to repay the
amount of the loan until he has
sold the crop and received his mon
ey. Under the ordinary transaction
the buyer does not pay the grower
until the hops are shipped. As a
result, the grower is not only liable
for the interest charges on his loan
for the additional time, but must al
so pay warehouse charges, which,
considering the inadequacy of stor
age room, are excessive, but must
assume the further danger of loss
from the elements.
In this city the grower must con-
tend with the further disadvantage
of a lack of warehouse room in which
to store his crop pending its sale
and delivery. The Southern Pacif
ic Company are without warehouse
accomodations for even temporarily
storing hops, while the warehouse
of the Oregon Water Power & Rail
way Company can accomodate not
to exceed tnnn bales. lioUl ut
street railway company and the riv
er steamers have received instruc
tions not to receive a single bale for
shipment even to Portland Pr-s
ent conditions leave the growert en
tirely at the mercy of the railroad
corporations, and are require 1 10
await their pleasure in the matter of
furnishing cars before they can real-
ize on their crops."

ALBERT BEALAND KILLED.
A Half Filled Whlakey Flaak Telia the
Whole Story. .End of a Thanka.
Albert Bealand, aged about 36
years, was killed by the cars at
Middleton on Thanksgiving night.
Coroner Brown and Dr. V. D.
Wood, of this city, went to the
scene of tbe accident and found
that Bealand had been run over by
the cars, bis left foot cut off, chest
crushed in and the body otherwise
cut and bruised, Pieces of the dead
man's sweater were found four
miles from where the accident oc
curred. The man's clothing was
cut into shreds, showiug that he
bad been carried along by the cars
for some distance.
A strange coincident is the fact
that twenty-three years ago, Beal
and's father was found hanging to
tree, about sixty rods from where
his son. was killed Thanksgiving
day, and Dr. E. M. Brown, brother
of our present Coroner Brown, was
acting coroner at that time and
conducted an inquest over the re
mains of elder Bealand. It was in
timated then and is still thought by
some that the son had something
to do with the death of his father,
as the feet were dragging on the
ground when found, and some
thought at that time that he had
been strangled and then taken to
tie tree and tied up. to give an ap
pearance of suicide.
A bottle of whiskey, half lull
was found on young Bealand's body
which tell its own story. The fol
lowing is from our Sherwood cor
respondent and tells of the circum
stances more fully:
An awful and horrifying result
of the overindulgence in strong
drink is made painfully apparent
in the sad ending of a young man
here on Thanksgiving day, who
unconsciously lay slumbering on
the railroad track, apparently dead
to the surrounding world and met
sudden death under the carwheels
of a passing train. Albert Bealand,
aged about 36, raised in this local
ity and only son of a helpless and
destitute widow residing at Middle
ton depot, came to town on the
above named date, fell in with con
vivial companions and spent the
day imbribing freely of, "that which
stingeth like an adder" and leads
down to the valley of the shadow
of death, all to quickly, and in this
unfortunate case, instantly. He
attempted to make his way home
about . 5 o'clock in the evening
when on reaching the warehouse,
fell across the track and lay help
less until removed by people pas
sing by. As he was just on the
outside of the town limits, and not
subject to arrest the town authori
ties did not molest him, which had
it been done would have saved his
life. How he managed to cross a
high railroad bridge and reach a
point perhaps a half a mile from
town is a mystery unexplained.
Here it appears he again sought
slumber on the track and his mang
led and lifeless remains were gath
ered up and taken to Middleton
depot the next morning by the
southbound passenger train, having
been run over during the night by
a passing freight, without being dis
covered. Bealand was a quiet, in
dustrious young man, when not
given to dissipation, and his em
ployers speak highly of him as an
efficient man at his work, being
principally engaged at sawmill
work when employed.

It cost the people of Oregon $30.
648.95 to protect game in Oregon
during 1906. This is shown by
the annual report of Game Warden
Baker, who recommends that game
protection be extended by the crea
tion of a new fund to be raised by
requiring all trout fishermen to take
Among other recommendations
made are two that the law protect
ing beaver be repealed, that a boun
ty be offered for cougars, wildcats
and timber wolves, that the elk pro
tection period be extended ten years,
that the law forbid possession of
game birds, either dead or alive,
during closed season. Mr. Baker
reports that game birds of all kinds
are increasing in numbers and
most kinds are very plentiful.
A Washington, D C, special
says: The Bristol nomination has
been referred to Senator Fulton and
by him sent back to the judiciary
committee with a note calling atten
tion to his action at the last session.
It will now be referred to a sub
committee, consisting of Senators
Kittredge and Foraker, who are ac
cussed in Collier's article of conspir
ing with Fulton to prevent Bristol's
confirmation. Fnlton says he will
ask that the nomination be rejected
and that the subcommittee stands
ready as It did last season, to report
adversely. Collier's article only
serves to make the subcommittee
more anxious than before to reject
Bristol, for it is generally looked
upon as inspired by Secretary Hitch
cock, who last winter used his best
efforts to secure Bristol's confirma
tion. A St. Paul, Minn., despatch of
last night says that a cold wave is
headed southward from tbe Canadi
an Northwest. In Winnipeg, Man
itoba, the thermometer was at zero
at 5 o'clock. The coldest place in
Canada tonight was Priuce Albert,
where it was 14 below.

his attorneys to appeal the case.
She promised that she and his lath

Miss Laura Messlnger, about 16
or 17 years of age, daughter of M.
F. Messinger, of Laurel, attempted
suicide in a drug store in this city
at about 9 o'clock last Monday
morning, and but for the prompt
intei ference ol John W. Bailey sh
would have succeeded. The girl
had secured a bottle of carbolic acid
somewhere anel going to the Phar
macy asked to have some medicine
put up. While Mr. Bailey was
writing the directions on the labels,
he happened to glauce up and saw
the girl swallow something from a
bottle, and surmising that it was
poison, ran to her and dashed the
vial from her hand, scattering the
fluid over his hands, burning him
self quite severely. He forced her
to take an antidote and immediate
ly summoned Dr. F. J. Bailey, who
arrived promptly and gave the girl
an emetic. She was soon revived
and taken to the home of Dan Hill
where she has been making her
home. Her lips, mouth and throat
were badly burned, but she will re
cover;, thanks to the prompt work
of Mr. Bailey and the doctor.
Miss Messinger has been, des
pondent for some time, and this is
her second attempt at self-destruction,
it is said. Mrs. Hill, with
whom she is living, has noticed
that the girl was trying to get away
with herself, and notified the drug
stores not to sell her any poison,
and she has been unable to get any
thing which would cause her death
at either store. Where she pro
cured the acid is only a matter of
guess work, bnt it is thought she
secured the bottle out of town.
