HOAV that the eastern railroads have scoured long
sought increase in rates, what will be the next conces

All the demands of capital have apparently boon met.
"Uncertainty has been removed. President AVilson lists
stated that, his program of legislation to regulate big busi
ness has been completed and the course, business must
follow to keep straight is plainly marked, and, business has
repeatedly asserted that it could adjust itself to any condi
tion, provided it knew in advance what that condition was.
The danger of financial panic has been removed by the
new currency law. No longer is a financial crash possible.
uncertainty has been eliminated and an elastic emergency
The tariff is fixed for a number ot years, at any rate, in
response to years of agitation. Industry knows what to
expect in this line also uncertainty is removed.
The Clayton bill and supreme court decisions Have out
lined clearly the patb between legal and illegal businss.
The restraints and regulations are known quantities.
Despite sneer and jeers of jingoes, the administration
has kept the nation at peace with the world. Hank .are
full of money, record crops are bringing record prices. The
demoralization caused by the European war is being grad
ually righted. Foreign commerce is being developed in
new quarters. Cessation of European exports and imports
is partially made up by large orders from belligerents.
The permission to increase rates was claimed as the
last thing needed to revive business. Let us hope it proves

Dissertation on the Bible
In an nrttcto pertaining to tho
Phoonlx schools publishod in the Mall
Tribune Nov. 2 4, tho statement was
mado that tho principal did not hold
a certificate entitling him to teach
Since, that tlmo I have been Inform
ed that during the past season he
lias received a five year ccrtlflcato
which under the laws of Oregon per
mits his teaching the ninth and tenth
grades. Now I bad no intention of
Injuring the gentleman but merely
to call attention to the Incompetency
and mlsmangetuent of those In au.
tbority. The school records uhow that
the gentleman, holds a one 'year cer
tificate and that i what I based ray"
Now I would suggest to our law
makers that If they wish to do. any
thing for tho benefit ot Oregon that
they proceed to amend the ccliool law
especially as to tho requirements of
tenchcriJ. Tho standard should be
raised. We should have thrco grades
of cm (incites, lt. Primary, Gram
mar and High school and applicants
for each should bo required to show
that they are thoroughly well quali
fied. Bo long as boys and girls, with
110 more education than what they
get In the grammar schools, and
jonng men and women with only
n high school education are employ
ed to teach In high nchools, Just so
long will tho standard of our schools
bo low, I would nlno suggest for
tho benotlt of tho schools that teach
ein fiorn other s tut en holding diplo
mas front iion11.1l schools, colleges,
and universities of high standards
bhould bo peiiulttej to teach In anv
of tho schools of tho state without

(lly Dr. J. Lawrence lllll.)
At it time when there wns. ns yet.
no English literature for the common
people, tlii untold wealth of Hebrew
literature (the llible) was implanted
in the Knli-h mind us in virpn soil.
Great euiiseqiicnees have Howed from J
the fact thut the first truly popular
literature in Kuuland, the fi rt that
stirred the hearts of nil clashes of
1'x'ople and filled their minds with
ideal pictures mid their every day
speeech with tipt mid telling pharses,
wns the literntttre comprised within
tho Bible. Oo where vou will, you do
not find in nny countrv, which is un
touched by the llible, that stimulus to
righteous livinir'nii you do where it
holds absolute sway. Sec what it
has wrought in the earth. What hut
the llible has transformed the nations
of Europe from savages to civilized
people. What gave inspiration to the
Dutch beggars wild lined (he shores
of Holland mid covered the water of
tho Netherlands jn mi eighty years
war against the most powerful na
tion then on earth? Wn.s it anything
but the inspiration which came from
the Bible nnd fired their hearts with
a zenl for liberty of conscience?
What was it which inspired their con
temporaries under Elizabeth to tho
dustruction of the greatest naVy then
exiMmg4 The historians, Maeauluy
nnd Green answer, the Hible. It was
tho Bible in the hnnds of Wickliff
and Huss in the fourteenth century
wjiich gave birth to rt new nnd better
day in the wftrid's history. It was
Luther proclaiming the tmths of this
book which awoke not only Germany,
but the whole world to u sense of Uh
duty towards uud faith in God.
Tho best laws in our land emanate
from it. Thut nntiou which liven
nearest to its truths stands highest in
the ncale of civilization. Without it
no nation can sustain or perpetuate
itself in righteousness.
Both nature and the Bible tench
that the power of the Bible is not in
(ho intellectual neenracy of its let
ter, lint in tho divine principles which
nnimalc it. No man, or set of men,
enn once for nil wash out of this
fountain of gold and. iix its total
amount in the ledger or daibook of a
catechism or a creed. Nor can tinyj
ono church tcast nil the clusters ot j
this vine of tlio ages into the picss o
one century of thought any miv wi (
have the whole vintage and the onl 1
pure wine. Each gcneuilioii imt-t go
back to the mountain to dig new ore,
and into the viueyard to pluck iio-li (
grapes, llie nunc is not an 11 un
bound box to ho presided over liv a
college of cardinnU or mi assemblage
of prot'cstmit ilmncs. It is every
man's hook, mid every man has the
light to iulciprct it for himself. It is
not the lraiiic, nor tho foim, nor
striiclinc, nor Innguagc of the book,
but the (iod who dwell in il mid
speaks to the human hern I out of its
c'lowiug pages ihnt make it precious
to ceiy thinking and unbiased mini.
It illumines and transfigure- the
present, for it bring God into it and
places Him in living toiieh with our
lives, and makes Him n helper in our
moral struggles nnd spiritual aspinr
tion-. and our heroic, though nnjK'r
feet, ctforts'to live the life of duty.
It is a solace in trouble, convolution
in sorrow, strength in weakness mid
cheer in loneliness; it become-, mi tin-fnilim-
inspiration when human un
til re, left to il.s own resources, would
lie down in despair mid die.
Therefore we cannot doubt but that
th chief principles of the Bible nre
iK.ivenly nnddivinc, though wc can
not so well prove that the very wonls
and syllables of it or arrangement of
its bonks, ore so, too; for it is the
sense, theJ soul of scripture, which
touches and satisfies all who come to
it hungering to learn more of God,
and of life hero nnd that which ii to
come, and not the mere letter of it. on
which to build our hopes.

it is.necessury that the carriers' rev

lort, recognizing the existence of a
