Bryan a Trust Magnate. • The following disposition of cases was made in Judge Boise’s court, which held i its session on Monday and Tuesday of this week: Mr. Bryan is himself one of the great est trust magnates the country has pro duced. He secured the democratic pres idential nomination in 1896, by which he hoped to secure a monopoly of all demo cratic votes. To this he added the pop ulist and silver republican nomination, and thus became the head and principal beneficiary of a great political trust, and he has used his power, just as every com mercial trust does, by charging exorbi tant prices for his product. This combi nation in restraint of political trade, and of political freedom of action, having failed of its purpose in the general elec tion of 1896, the head of the trust devot ed his talents to the writing of a book entitled “The First Battle.’’ He placed it upon the market. At what figure ? $3.50! ! Not because it was worth it, but becuse he, as the head of a great political trust, could get it At the same time you could go to any department store in the country and secure a volume of the best literature in the English lan guage for 50 cents. To-day, according to Senator Dollivar, “The First Battle” can be secured at the second-hand book stores for 25 cents. Later, Mr Bryan piade a tour of the country delivering speeches for pay. He came to Oregon He delivered one speech at Gladstone for the Willamette Valley Chautauqua Asso. ciation, and received $500 for it. The association has been favored with scores of infinitely better speeches from the best talent on the American platform at less than half ot that figure, but Mr. Bry an had a monopoly in his particular line and charged the full limit, without ref erence to the quality of the goods. At some of the fairs of the Mississippi val ley it is said a single speech has brought him as much as $2,500. The story that his book and his speeches have brought him $250,000, and that he has invested the proceeds in government bonds is not unreasonable, but whether true or false, it is certain that there is not another trust in the country that has, in the last five years, made such an exorbitant ad vance in the price of its products as Mr. Bryan has in his. In a general sense his action in this matter is perfectly legiti mate, but one who has done this is dis qualified from talking in a very high key about monopoly or corporate greed.—C. B. Moores. 1.

Married—Some time within the last week we are moral sure that Mrs. M. C. Rutan atyi W. E. Howard were united in matrimony, though like everybody else we are unable to get particulars.

Fenton, a former demo crat, of Portland, made a speech at the Tabernacle in that city Saturday evening which contained some of the severest yet most logical scoring the democratic par ty and its leader have received in Ore gon. On the subject of expansion he said: “The great events of the last two years have brought back this old question. And how do the democrats face it? Af ter clamoring in congress that the rights of belligerents be given the Cuban insur gents, and trying to hurry the president into war with headlong haste, war came on us as a righteous war, after the ill- fated 15th day of February, 1898, and was recognized as such by all parties. Dewey entered Manila bay, and later the troops were sent to back up the navy. Do we find Bryan protesting? No. Do we find an alliance with Aguinaldc, who had sold out his countrymen, his interests in the Philippines for the traitor’s re ward of $400,000? On the contrary oue of the first acts of William McKinley was to cable Dewey, ‘Make no alliance with Aguinaldo or anyone else.’ And then we have the spectacle of Bryan, this gallant colonel with the great fear of militarism, down on bis knees before tbe governor of Nebraska, begging for a commission in a volunteer regiment in the army of the United States, which by his vote in congress had been harassed so that the soldiers of the army may not be paid ex cept by special act of congress every two years “Now we come to the terms of peace with the cession of the Spanish islands, Cuba being left ’out on account of the sentimental resolution of congress. Do we find Bryan protesting? Na. Bryan leaves Lincoln, Neb., hastens to Wash ington, saying: ‘I will become an em peror. I will annex these islands, ia.ooo miles away, and take in 10,000,000 creat ures at $2 a head. ’ By 10 democratic votes he assists the ratification of the treaty, and the islands became as much a part of the United States as Alaska, the Sandwich islands, New Mexico and Arizona. And Bryan and his party have equal responsibility in the ratification. “And shall he be allowed to make po litical capital from it? I say that he has no right to stand up now and say he didn’t think it was right He is estopped from this by every consideration of right. He is estopped by his previous acts from charging that the republican party is now the party of imperialism. “Bryan proposes, if elected, to estab lish a stable government in the Philip pines. What has President McKinley One Dollar If paid in advance, 8ingle numbers five cents. and the army been trying to do for two years, harassed by Bryan's opposition, encouraging the Filipinos? Do McKin> ley's attempts savor of imperialism? He has incorporated into the scheme of gov ernment to be applied to the Philippines every guarantee of the bill of rights of the constitution. What is good enough for you and your kindred is good enough for the Filipino. Is the brown man to be deprived of liberty of conscience, of trial by jury, of a right to participate in his own affairs? “Bryan has simply tried toescape from the consequences of the resurrection of former issues buried in the last election by adopting the tactics of opposition, of hypocrisy, to create new political issues, lacking the patriotism, the loyalty, to support the treaty, now the supreme law of the land under the constitution. ’’ New Modal Club. A new club has been formed in this city to be known as the “McMinnville Commercial Club.” It has engaged as as its quarters the upper story of the new Flynn building. The purpose of the or ganization is the social, moral and intel lectual improvement of its members. The officers chosen are E. V. LittleGeld, president; Leroy Lewis, vice president; R. L. Conner, secretary and treasurer; executive committee, W. L. Warren, M. A. Baker, E. C. Apperson, W. S. Wade and C. R. Hamblin. Cards and billiards will constitute the chief forms of amusement. Membership is now being solicited and a roll of forty seven names is secured. The club will also include in its purpose tbe entertain ment of new comers, visitors and strang ers within the city. City Ticket Named. A citizens’ meeting was held at the court house Saturday evening, which named the following persons for city officers: For mayor, Jacob Wortman. For recorder, Thos. H. Rogers. For marshal, C. H. Neal. For councilmen, first ward, long term, John Newell; short term, W. H. Logan. For councilmen, second ward, Henry Gee and Geo. W. Jones. For councilman, third ward, II. C. Burns. It is understood the democrats will put up a ticket. The action of the republicans as a party is still in doubt. We think the above ticket a pretty good one. Cook School Note«. Another month gone. More new students. We need a library cabinet. The board is going to fit up one of the vacant rooms for a lunch and general ex ercise room. Miss Comer's geography class is pre paring a very interesting chart of tbe products of the different countries of tlie world. The literary society in the eighth grade is yet without a name but it will not long be in such a sad plight. It now has a full set of officers, including a li brarian to look after the periodicals. Tlie eighth grade is in search of some mottoes for their walls. Can you sug gest one? There is talk of Indian club and wand drills. Why not? Columbus School Notes. The pupils all began in dead earnest Monday morning. It was the beginning of the second month, and the professor said we must tighten the strings a little. Several college students have been vis iting the school this week. Miss Christa Seitters is able to be in school again, having recovered consider ably from her “pitch out” excursion. Tuesday afternoon a literary society was organized with Otis Neal, president; Geneva Vinton, vice president; Edith Hamblin, secretary. This society is to meet the second and fourth Friday af ternoons of each month, between 2:30 and 4p m. Its purpose is to make the pupils accustomed to shaking to audi: ences, and to get them so they wont faint when called on to make a speech or give a talk. Among the visitors for the first month were: Prof. Duncan, Carl Shortridge, Harry Jones, Mrs. W. T. Vinton, J. P. Irvine, Mae Reynolds, Thos. Hutchens, Leila McCormick, Rua Goucher and Mrs. G. E. Vinton. There were i84 boys and 186 girls enrolled last month, there were 6015 days attendance, 175 days’ absence, 18 tar dies, two of them being in the high school. NO. 44. LAFAYETTE. Mrs C. E. Watts is expected home to day from Mills City. Boats through the locks with dispatch nearly every day. Works to perfection. George Lewis is now at home waiting on his uncle, Mr. Burbank, who is in poor health. C. E. Burt has closed his work on the railroad here, and will soon go to Eure ka, Calif., to work. The many friends of Hon. A. R. Bur bank will be sorry to learn of his fast de clining health of late. Messrs. Olds have rented the Frank Fenton hopyard east of town, and are putting it in order for the crop. Several relatives of Mrs. N. Olds were up trom Portland to see Aunt Nancy over Sunday, returning to Portland on Mon day. Mrs. Ella Metzger of Dallas, who has been visiting here among relatives and friends of late, will return home the last of the week. Mayor John Thompson returned the first of the week for a short stay, and made a business trip to McMinnville on Wednesday. He will ¡go to East Port land on Thursday. J. E. Hubbard resigned his appoint ment as judge of election at this place, owing to ill health, and J. H. Olds has been appointed in his stead. The board now stands: J. W. Watts, Job Carey and J. H. Olds. AMITY. So far not a political speech in Amity. Wood sawing is now the order of the day. The big bridge south of town is being repaired. Mary Weston attended the Baptist convention at The Dalles this week. Our public school is progressing nice ly under the management of Prof. Fisher. A suit to recover money was tried here last Tuesday by parties from Wheatland. Potato digging is well under way. They are “turning out” good, and quali ty is fair. Mrs. Wm. Buffum was taken to the hospital at Portland last Tuesday for treatment. Mrs. Douglas departed for The Dalles Tuesday last, where she will attend the Baptist convention. Chester Briedwell now goes on crutch es, all on account of some naughty thistles getting in his toe. M rs. Broadwell received a severe cut on the arm last Monday while canning fruit. Dr. Wood sewed uptlie wound. Auction sale at Roth’s store last Wed nesday. Mr. Roth will go out of busi ness, which will leave one of the best openings in the valley for some enter prising merchant. One thing needed very badly in thia town is u fruit dryer. There is a large amount of fruit raised here, and those who sell have to haul either to Salem, Dayton or some other far away point. This is the story every year, and it is surprising that some public spirited citi zen does not take advantage of thia rare chance to make money. One ol Dr. L'albreuih’a People. On Monday morning at 5:30 the life less form of John F. Adams, an inmate of the asylum, was found in his room nt that institution, hanging by a strip of a blanket tied around his neck and at tached to a steam pipe above. The pa tient had resorted to this tneams of put ting an end to his existence, and had probably been dead but a short time, as the body was still warm when it was dis covered. The deceased was 51 years of age, and was a resilient of Jackson coun ty before his commitment to the asylum in 1896, this being his third commitment. The four leading angora counties of Or egon are Polk, Yamhill, Marion and Ben ton. Douglas is gaining very fast and will probably be in tbe same class in a year or two..........There are a number of succeaeful growers of grapes in the Will amette valley. Of these W. K. Newel), of Dilley, is taking the lead, although he baa a less favorable location for grapes than some of the others. Mr. Newell confines himself to the American vari eties and of the many which he has giv en a thorough trial be finds Moore's Dia mond to be unquestionably tbe best. It is earlier, sweeter and more melting than the Concord. The only trouble with it at present aa a market grape is tbe prejudice ot the people oí Portland in favor of black grapes.
