FRIDAY, APRIL 13, 1900.
A C hicago statesman shot his en
emy twice in succession with great
accuracy, and now pleads that the
shooting was accidental. He ought
to go to Kentucky.
D uring the last eight months, the
United States imports of raw mate
rial for use in ¡manufacturing, in
creased $60,000,000, and the expor
tations of manufactured articles in
creased by $61,000,000. .Thus the
United States, under the Dinglev
law, is becoming more atid more the
workshop to which the world sends
its crude materials to be worked
up into shape.
T he outlook for the Willamette
valley farmer is not discouraging if he
has a few head of beef cattle or mut
ton sheep to sell. With a good fat
beef steer worth $50, nn.tton $6 to
$7.50 per head, creamery butter 65
cents per roll, and the very best
dairying region in the world right
here in the Willamette valley, it
would look as.if wheat and hops
would have to give place to meadows
and pasture fields.
I n an attempt to bolster up the
fortunes of the trust the editor of the
Sugar Trade Journal, the organ of
trust, has issued an appeal to people
to purchase the stock, from motives
of patriotism, glory and profit. He
points out what a great thing it
would be to “be pointed out as a co
partner in the greatest business in
the United States, reaching in its in
fluence the entire citizenshiji of the
country.” This sounds like an indi
cation of trouble in the sugar trust,
in view of the recent marked decline
in common stock, on which dividends
have been persistently dwindling.
There are about 500,000 shares of
common stock in the sugar trust, so
that the honor would be common if
the stock was well distributed, If
the sugar trust should dissolve it
would only be in line with the fate of
some other of the big trusts of the
country that were formed during the
inflation that followed the move of
prosperity in industrial and com

N othing can be more absurd than
to attribute to President McKinley a
desire to launch this country on a
career of imperialism and become a
sort of emperor himself. Washing
ton had to undergo the same kind of
charges and attacks from the oppo
sition of his day. who insisted that
he wanted to be a king. Jefferson,
Jackson and Lincoln were subjected
to the same unreasonable and trea-
sonable abuse. There is no party in
this country that favors imperial
ism and but few, if any, individuals.
And of all the citizens of thecountry
it is not probable that there is a
single one more opposed to changing
the principles of our government ill
any respect than President McKinley
himself. In his recent speech in
New York he spoke the following em
phatic words on this subject:
Therecan be no imperialism. Those
who fear are against, it. Those
w ho have faith in the republic are
against it. So that there is oniversal
abhorrence for it and unanimous op
position to it. Our only difference is
1 hat those who do not agree with us
have no confidence in the virtue or
capacity or high purpose or good
faith of this free people as a civiliz
ing agency, while we believe that
the century of free government which
the American people have enjoyed
has not rendered them faithless and
irresolute, but has fitted them for
the great task of lifting up and as
sisting to better conditions thosedis-
t.iut peoples who have, through the
issue of battle, become our wards.
