GRAFT VICE IS GENERAL
A Writer So-ys ll Permeates All
"Grafting threatens tlie very life of
the nation, " is tho caption of an ar
ticle which apiarcd in a recent is
sue of tho Brooklyn Eagle.
After calling graft "tho meanest
and lowest form ol tliiiivery," the
EagePs special writer says:
"Grafting is by no means confined
to the petty and wholesale robbing
of the community by public officials.
There is the gr tier who ia false to
the interests of his employer; tho
grafter who uses his position with a
corporation or company to a dishonest
eud. In every Drancli and nullifica
tion of (he business, financial and in
dustrial world is found the grafter,
mug of face, discieot of iougue a
snake warmed In the bosom of the one
he systen.atially plunders. This
spoliation has becconie the besetting
and siiani'ful tin of the American
"There is hardly an occupation or
profession which does not affor.l op
portunity for graft. The timo lias
como when graft is a recognized and
conventional factor in determining
tho incomes of those who profit there
by. If tho Benedict Arnold! of a city
the sia of New York or Chicago were
to march in solid rank past the re
spective city halls, it would take
them long to pass, and it is feared
they wonid be greet d and applauded
b y throngs of envious and admiring
" Wo may accept it as a self-evident
proposition that the nau who buyt
His way into ollico Intends to steal hh
way out of it. These are tlie pro
fessional grafters; they mako no pre
tenses of a hue-spun morality. Hut
iqnally dangerous and far nioro des
picable aro the grafters who pose as
resjiectalilo members of society. Tin
grafter of the slums lias his counter
part in the genteel, educated character
iiMiroudeluth, who prates of patriot
ism mid asks the b.esHings of Provi
dence upon his peculations.
"This is the ouly nation in the.
world where the holding of a public
olliee raises a suspicion as to the
character of tho Incumbent. We have
not enough civic pride to outweigh
tho energy and tho iiiHui nco of the
grifter. Since this astounding and
b plorabhi state of affairs obtains in
no other nation, tho inference is clear
Unit wo have reached a low moral
"The grafter is an effect, not a
cause, llo is the retainer of dishrnest
liusines interests; the henchman of
those so carried away by the lust of
greed that they do not hesitate to
plunder their fellow citlzoi.a through
the bribed co-operation of those who
aro elected to protect their interests.
"Powerful and seemingly unas
sailable as is this alliance between
criminal interests nnd criminal
olllcials, it will be ground to jxjwdur
when once the American people rea
lize tho nl in in.) which has cropt upon
them Thero is brewing revoluton

THE "BLOCK BEAUTIFUL."
llrookJrBs Plasi te lapnrt mad

v Village Improvement societies that
And It difficult to Interest their citizens
In town beautifying might adopt the
Brooklyn "block beautiful" plan to
good advantage. The scheme started
on one block in the City of Churches
last year, bat was soon taken up by
other residents, and much was done to
Improve and beautify the town. The
movement ia to be extended tbls year,
and already the Heights branch of the
Women's Municipal league, which Is
the moving spirit In the matter, Is at
work among the residents of the city,
particularly in the Heights section, and
urging the extension of the work be
gun lust year.
The object of the league is to encour-
ag-o the beautifying of tbe city as far
as possible, and one of the means
adopted is the planting of trees, shrubs
and vines and cartjig for and protect
ing those already growing. The league
in its work prooses to secure permits
for nil those who may desire to plunt
trees In front of their residences and to
ndvlse with residents on the best kind
of tree to plant nnd to give sugges
tions for the further beautifying of the
exterior surroundings of the bouse as
may lie desired.
The league will also advise concern
ing window boxes, which add material
ly to the bennty of the house, giving
hints as to their color and general de
sign, so as to harmonize with tbe ar
chitectural appearance of tlie house.
Another scheme which the league Is
promoting Is that of turning the yards
in the rear of houses Into gardens.
The7 plan Is to do away with the high'
board fences that separate the yards
and In their places put a small wire
net with a mesh of handsome design
and by the planting of shrubs, flowers,
grass and the building of arbors, cov
ered with vines, to give the yards the
appearance of small parks and afford
a delightful retreat during tlie beat of

Ambitions of towns ure as remarka
ble as those of men. Of course, nearly
every Municipality desires to be pros
perous, have flue schools, libraries mid
parks and Increase its population.
Many go beyond these ordinary am
bitions. For Instance, the town of Muns, in
Itc Igluiu. 1 1 desirous of abolishing pov
erty within Its borders, snys the New
York World. To this end every child
Is olllflally registered us soon as It Is

its name by the municipal authorities

youngster attains his majority, a little

Block. In Holland, aspires to the dis
tinction of being the neutest town in
the world, and certainly no expense Is
spured to make It so. The 2,700 inhab
itants are so strongly bound by munici
pal rule that to throw a piece of paper
or waste of any kind In the public
stieet entails a twenty-five cent fine,
nnd It Is only recently that horses have
been allowed In the streets. Once a
year every house Is visited by the town
cl-aners, who scrub It from top to bot

A TOWN FOREST.
otI Kiprrlmrat llrlas Trlrd la
Ilrunswlck, Me., Is probably the only
town In New Knglund that Is raising
a forest of Its own. The town owns
g large common of about l.nuo acres,
Commonly known ns the Plains. Sev
eral years ago Austin Cury. a Howduln
college graduate, wl o is uu expert In
forestry, after looking the ground over,
decided that It would tie an excellent
place to sturt n forest to be owned by
Tlie Plains are In most parts covered
with a growth of scrub pines, snys the
Boston Globe, and lu the open spaces
Mr. Cury, with a corp of assistants,
bus been settlug out w hite pine trees.
J'or several years Hie town appropri
ated $100 a year for the purpose, but
lust year only $."sl was appropriated.
The work, however, w as carried on the
same us before.
Mr. Cnry's report on the work done
lust year litis Just lwen innde public. It
is divided Into four parts, planting ou
the lMnliis. maintaining two nurseries
sown the yeur ts'fore, measures for tire
protection and the Improvement of the
tJuelH'rry cmp. It states that there are
now 2il,ii0 while pine trees growing
on the common besides a blueberry
plantation of some thirty acres.

There should be no feu.as unless
there Is reason fur It. Some person
seem to want fcinvs Just for the pur
pose of having theia. Of themselves
fences are neither ornamental nor de
sirable. The stns't mid tlie walk stitll
elently define the place. A wall may
mean seclusion, nud It may easily be
made a part of the architectural fen

well lulu the planting designs of a

INVESTED IN GOOD STOCK
And Now Has Ve-lue-blo Hold
ings. G. II. How laud, is feeling pretty
good over his mining investments in
Southern Oregon, says the Medford
MalL Something over a year ago lie
was pnrsuaded by n friend, John F.
Wickham, to invest f l."00 in tlie stock
of the Alameca mine in Josephine
coonty. His investment called for
stoca at 20 cents per shaie. At the
time he invested, Mr. Wickham
guaranteed him a profit of 25 per cent
within six mouths. Within three
mouths lie was offered -JO cents per
share, or an advance of 100 per cent.
That looked good to Mr. How hind and
he invested 1000 more. The other
day the company made arrangements
for tho erection of a plant wiih a
capacity of 1000 tons of ore per day of
the Improved Mineral Hmelter Com
pany, whose process has been Very
successful In treating the refractory
ore of this section. The Alameda
contains one of the large.st bodies ot
ora on the coast. It is an extension
of the iamoa Pig Yank ledge oi
lower Kogue rwer, nud, while the
ore is low grade, there are almtst
limitless quantities of it. The com
pany has two tunnels ou the ledge,
ono 700 feet and the other 800 feet
above tho bed of Rogue river. Iu
neither one of these tunnels have the
walls of the ledge been etruck. The
ledge is cut by tho river, which thus
gives a depth of 1000 feet at. least.
The Burface work shows a width of
12S feet and a length of 4000, and it. is
estimated that thero are 550,000,000
worth of ore iu sight. Mr. Howland,
who ' as been over the ground informs
n I that'there is nothing exaggerated
iu the above report. That, if any
thing, the proposition ia bigger than
