What Some of the Boys are Saying on
Topic9 of the Day.
. Speaking on the shipping bill the other
diiy, Senator Frye Hai J : Now, this is a
lireut nation. We boast of it immensely,
We are complimenlinir ourselves hugely
over the census returns, over our wealth,
over our manufacturing industries; and
yet to-day we are fulling into the con
tempt of the whole world because we, a
maritime nation, have no ships on the
ocean; uijfa we are- entitled to that con
tempt, too. We are a giant, but we are
bound. We are a Sampson, but our
locks are Bhorn. Why should we pay
$150,000,000 a year to foreign ships for
carrying our cargoes? Why should we
carry our mails under a foreign flag?
Why should every paHsenj?er who de
sires to sail from America ubroad be
compelled to sail under a foreign flag?
Why should we, witli our immense
wealth and our great power, our ship
yards and mechanics, our enormous
count-line, depend upon foreign nations
to do all of our foreign carrying business
for us? Why should we permit them to
pay subsidies, as England lias for fifty
years, and quietly surrender the posses
sion of all this business? Why yield to
Spain and Germany and Italy and Hol
land and the Argentine Republic?
Ihifiiness pluck is necessary for the
development of tho resources ot any
community. It makes little difference
how advantageously any point is situ

not exercise enterprise and energy the

reap the advantages which it natnrallv
possesses. If we had the business grit
of Spokane rails, Ilakur t it v or even
l'endleton, steamers would now bo mak

would be tho suppliant instead of the

every movement and craving the least
favor from 'the heartless and greedy
monopoly. If Tho Italics will rid itself

A petition comes from Colorado pray

There is nothing in all the daily records
of events more encouraging than these
occasional ami unquestionable evidences
of patriotic spirit. There is not a more
thoroughly material state in nil the
Union than Colorado; its history is only
tho story of yesterday ; it was settled by
adventure and bus been built by a
thoroughly speculative and practical
class of people, yet it is from Colorado
end not from Massachusetts or Virginia

Tertland wants the Press association
there this year. The association meets
in August, and ubout fifty editors expect
to bo present. The best thing 1'ortland
business men can do is to give tho boys

six months or a year. That would hit
the boyi better than for the business
men to spend $1500 or 2000 in stuffing
them at the Portland hotel. Oregon

chasing tho substantial only. Issue
