Tlicro has been u groat deal said
and written about various trusts
controlling many of the most impor
tant brunches of bunim-sts and seri
ously alleeting tiio great economic
nlluirs of the country. Buch as the
lumber trust, the sugar trust and
tho wuler trust, which limit supply
and fix the price of almost all the
prime necessaries of life, thus pul
ing into the hands of a few selfish
capitalists the regulation of the
comforts and enjoyments of life,
yivlng them the dangerous power
to enhance the cost of living and
take from tho masses of the people
that divine right of equal freedom
in the pursuits of happiness.
Ill Oregon there exists tho Hour
trust which is one of ths niostt op
pressive and odious of these com
binations. It Is true It allows farm
ers to exchange wheat for Hour and
gives 40 pounds for a bushel of wheat
but only allows them enough for
domestic Uhcand limits their family
rations. During the past season
prior to the harvest of 1888 what In
Salem was worth only (12 cents per
bushel while llourldurlng thosaino
time was sold for about an average,
of fl.fiO per bariel. Th!, consider
ing the price of wheat, was at least
one dollar per barrel more than it
should have been. This enhanced
prico for Hour has been paid alike
by all elasf-es of our people except a
fuw milium who pooled their inter
ests to control the output and price,
that they might share the booty at
tho exi)enso of the people.
Now let us do some figuring to
show how tho matter stands: Four
and tine half bushels of wheat will
make a barrel of Hour. This-!
bushels at (l- cnts per bushel costs
tho miller '."Uicostot'grlndlng, etc.
Willi t per cent (tho legal toll) its i ts ,
cost of Hour sacks JJO cents. This
makes the wholo cost of a barrel of
Hour fit.il I. Kroin thlsshould Vo de
ducted the viiluo of the bran and
shorts made from the IJ bushels of
wheat which should bo 71 pounds,
tho dllforoneo between tho weight
of a barrel of Hour 100 pounds and
tho weight of ! bushels of wheat
270 pounds, ltran and shorts sold
tit an avarago of $10 per ton or four
flfthslofa cent per pound. Bo the
74 pounds of bran and shorts, would
bo worth Bit cts. Take this from Jfit.
Hl tho cost of tho wheat and expense
of manufacturing and packing the
Hour and we have a barrel of Hour
ready for tho market, costing the
miller 2.7f. This taken from $4..p0
tho price Hour sold for, leaves tho
miller fl.7ii net protlt on each bar
rel of Hour. 75 cents would be a
most liberal protlt to tho miller and
allord him a business much more
lucrative than farming.
Now let us niako a few more Hg
uros and show what this enhanced
price of ono dollar per barrel has
cost the good people of Oregon In
twelve mouths. Budjhiso tho popu
lation of Oregon to 1h 800,000 and
that each Individual consumes dal
ly om half pound of Hour (which Is
low than army rations.) This would
make tho dally consumption 160,000
pounds this multiplied by iilto, the
iumilHr of days In a yoar would
niako tho yearly consumption of
Hour M,7A0,000 pounds; divide this
by aw, It Mug ;lu round numbers)
the pound of Hour In a barrel; given,
278,750 the number of barrels eon
Hiiiuod. Ax low Ikkui shown tthovo

Las Imhmi unjudtly culinnctMl one
dollar to nil ooiimuners In Oregon.
Tho Mini tho uidiikUy taken by
thU tnwt from the jwople amount
tothtfauin of $27S,7S0.
Thewo 11 ,'iirvi are IiuKsmI atarlllng,
yet th y inv true and Miow tho
trust In Its true bearings its one of
those gigantic syndicates which
serves to enrich a few but dwarfs
the Incomes and stints the living
of the masses of the people.
No wonder that while such mo
nopolies are glittered to exlst.a favor
ed few grow sudtenly rich on prince
ly Incomes and are enabled to live
in luxury in splendid mansions in
our cities, spend their leisure in for
eign travel and Indulge their costly
tastes in building beautiful villas at
pleasant places by the sea. We
should not forget that these trusts
are in restraint of trade ami have
been pronounced illeg.il by the
courts as being enemies to tho pub
lic and the state. Our next legisla
ture should provide for tho .suppres
sion of a monopoly which controls
the price of bread, which Is the
stall" of life. We want again our
custom mill and free competition.
Tins is a contrary world. No one
seems to be satislied. One man is
struggling to get justice, and anoth
er is Hying from It. One man is
saving up to buy a house, and anoth
er is trying to sell his dwelling for
less than it cost, to get rid of it.
One man is spending all the mouey
he can cam in taking a girl to the
theater and bending her llowers, In
the hope that he may eventually
make her his wife, and his neigh
bor is spendi.ig all the gold he has
saved to get a divorce. Smith is
drinking imported ale to put flesh
on, while Johnson Is living on crack
ers and walking ten miles a day to
reduce his avoirdupois.
A BiiKUWD yankee has Invented
an apparatus tor timing horses. A
clock with three hands, minutes,
seconds and quarter seconds Is start
ed by the olllcial timer. When the
winning horse, touches the wire the
clock is stopped by electricity. The
same instant the current opens a
camera, which photographs the
horse and the clock face.
Si:natok Siii:kma. says there
is not the slightest foundation for
the story now going the rounds of
the press to tho ctl'ect that he would
refuse to accept a position In Harri
son's cabinet, because he would be
succeeded In tho senate by Foraker.
As ono good result of the recent el
ection it can be mentioned that con
gress Is actively working upon the
matter of admitting tho territories
as states, with a fair probability that
Washington and Dakota will be ad
mitted (luring this session.
