"I believe, when Roosscvelt alumd the
irrigation act, he fixed h! name, to .the
Kreatent law that ever went uton the
statute books of thin, nation." declare!
Cieorgre 11, Maxwell In a speech laet
nfghL "Lincoln-signed the Iimancipa
tlon proclamation making 4,000.000
slaves free. Roosevelt dlI &b much for
freedom Of all citizenn that one ia
the freest who gets his own profits from
hist own labor on his own land. 1
"No one act has ever done more for
theperpetuation of free Institutions
than the irrigation act. if - The ! order
which .passed this bill was Let there
be homes.' In the beginning of things
the order was 'Let there.be light.' Be
tween the two mandates there Is little
difference,-because the home is the
light of freedom of this nation," j
No Graft About It.
Mr.. Maxwell Is executive prtldent
of the National Irrigation Association
lie has been prominently identified with
the Irrigation movement for the past
eight years. ' Southern California is the
birthplace of the movement. In that
region he has worked along with the
rapidly growing sentiment for Govern
ment irrigation, lie is making a- tour
ofJthe Western state.. This morning
he will go to Puget Bound and thence
to Chicago, the . headquarters of the
association. Mr. MaxweU's wife and
daughter accompany him. Last night
. Mr, Maxwell made an address in the
Chamber of Commerce Uullding, under
the auspices: of the - Hoard of Trade
Chamber of i Commerce and Alanufac
tarers' Association, liis remarks were
ticusely followed by a. large audience

tr Maxwell urges Portland c-ltlaens
to join the Nat lontit Irrigation Assoc-la
tioii and thereby lend tlieir intluence to
the new polity of the Government, and
unsure the proper administration of
' that policy. ; s . r

IHUcy Is not a graft. If the. West does
this. In a'.few years it will !e able to get

two years they will get from Congress

any sum required. ' .i
The speaker emphasized the fact that
the paKage of the act wis due to the
business s;igaeity of powerful Kastern
Interests, lie fctYongly, lnieted ; that
water and land rights should be J ru-i-ti
ruble. He a!3 urged the neterslty of
having fourts ..closely delloe and limit
riparian rights. ; !
.'The above la from tha news columns
of the OrcRonian of yesterday.
Mr, Maxwt-tl s.tid that "in Southern
California are about 1.250,000 arrest 'of
land tnada arable by private Irrigation,
t-nterprise; in -Colorado are about
1.500,000 acres. In the UnUed States
are about 7,500,000. In the entire United
States atxut J00.000.t00 acres of f arid
Ian4 ran be made fruitful by.a Gover.-.
inent system of . Irrigation." .-.
Ife-wer.t on to any;: "Dowrt In Cali
fornia the peoole did not stop because
itJovernment money for preliminary
surveys was inadequate. They' went
aheadlof their own accord. Tliey raised
$10,00t)f for surveys. That t hows !ptrit,
iloesn't it? , Rut now the Government
-has provided sufficient money for these
purposes. For four years we have kept
up a constant struggle to have the
fund for surveys ralfe-i from $50,00 to
$J50,000." We have su-ceeded in getting
$.'00,000, Tes, this fund is ample."
Mr. Maxwell said the president of the
National Manufacturers' Association
said at the Indianapolis convention:
i I wouldfather have, the trade of
manufacturers, of 1,000,000 more farm
ers in this country, than all of the
jtr.tde if South America." !

quarterly. -. tf ,i ,
Insurance' companies, $18 a year.
The slot machines bring into. theclty
treasury about $1,0C0 a year. . The In
suranoe companies' licenses bring In
about, the same amount. f
; The main reason fur giving the above
facts ahd figures at this time is to call
attention' to the fact that in some cases
the license charges are entirely too
low. Buffalo Bill's Wild West, recently
here, paid only $15 into the city treas
ury. That aggregation took out of
ffifc community between $10,0i0 and
$1G,000 for the two perf ot ma nee. Haa
they been reuired to xay a license of
$200 to I he city it would have' been very
reasonable. A three-ringed circus may
come and pay only $100, This is not
more than half high enough. The li-
centM ordinance jought to be amended
in several 'idaees. The license unld by
tented attraction should depend, upon
the seating capacity. Then there would
be no $15 license paid by any kind of an
attraction seating- fifteen to twenty
thousand people. . f;
If the county Is not going to have a
bicycle license, then the cltv of Saler'n
ought to ' have tJne. and the proceed.
should be expended in building pal!...
inere are otner sources ot revenue
from licenses,: that ought to-be looked
up by the city authorities. And there
should be a rigid enforcement. The
regular business men, who stay here all
the time and pay taxes year after
year, ought to be protected from ?
ly-by-night outfits that .com in end
reap rich, rewards and then skip ? for
greener pastures. In some way or
other; every one who profits from thf
protection of society otighno be made-.

The Mexican Herald, the excellent
paper printed in English at. the cap-
Kal of Mexico, corrects the; assump
tion of many of our journals that Pres
ident Iias Is timidly avoiding; a plain
and easy duty In not establishing the
gold standard and getting "rid 'of the
unstable silver currency from which

treating like more ordinary f bullion,
our contemporary and a very great part
it the Mexicans acknowledge and de
plore. The wage-earning and salar
ied clarses are "pinched badly by the
slicing off process that Is going on In
he purchasing power of the dollar,"
and "the railway corporations, with
gold Interest to meet abroad, with sup
plies to buy on a gold basis, are In the
ume fix.
Why, then, doc not President PUk
iroreed to adopt tlw gold standard Jit

ment believe that they . would suffer
from a change the gold stand.rd,

S. K. Bulletin; The real great men
are themen of science and letters, the
leaders of s thought and pioneers 5 of
knowledge.1 but the men who gain the
greatest glory arid make the most
money are those who obtain high pub
lic office, or who succeed eminently in
trade, or who win great battles. Yet
these latter are of the second order of
greatness. They are not primarily
thinkers. They are the great doers.
Th-sy have executive faculty, but the
men of science and letters have the
speculative faculty, which Is the most
godlike attribute of man.' Aristotle

hold that opinion.
