Daily Capital Journal
BY HOKBR BROTHERS,
' FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1897.
OrcgorfflfaS today not a senator who
went Jpdhly before the people for his
ofllcc. How Ion's shall this continue ?
How many other states arc like Ore-
The Chinese and Italians have com-
'plctely driven the American farmer
and gardners out or the Portland
market. We talk of protecting the
The' market reports In this paper
are not taken from Portland papers.
We are receiving the only original
Independent who market taken by
any paper at Salem.
This paper cannot take its "tele-
'graphic" market report from the
"Evening Telegram," as the morning
paper does. That report Is news a
Oregon women aresaving our fruit
' "'ithd hop crops, our flax and kid crops.
(Kid according to Webster Is a young
child or infant.") The men have got
!to look out or in the race or progress
and- tlcvelopement women will
' outstrip them.
The schools do not open until early
In October, and all men and women
who can go the hopfields should do s
and take the children. It will give
the children an outing, giyo them
health, tcach.them industry and better
still earn somemoney.
With wheat, wool, cattle, sheep,
fruit, flax and sugar beets, to bring
money to Oregon, to say nothing of
such minor crops as mohair, chittum
bark, oats and cayuscs for canning,
Oregon will prosper when other states
Oregon sugar beets tested at the
State Agricultural college show
twenty per cent of sugar stuff. Chlno
beets ayerage 15 percent. This is the
garden spot or the world and Califor
nia is not in It
Senator McfJrido and ex-Senator
Mitchell have returned to Oregon en
tirely Tor their health. Senator-appoint
Oorbett Is seeking health in
New England All three arc repair
ing political fences.
As usual the telegraphic market re
port? are doctored and lixed up in the
monopol) press to suit the Interests
of the wheat gamblers and rob the
farmers. This paper has secured at
, great expense an independent com
mercial wire report, which we believe
is correct and reliable.
A few American farmers about
Portland make money raising ducks,
pigs and poultry to sell to the Chinese
and Italians. The products consumed
by white people at the metropolis of
Oregon is grown by Mongols and
Dagos. That is the condition of Cali
fornia, British Columbia and fust,
becoming so In Oregon.
The people are realizing that this
paper is thououghly Independent,
that It Is not published to punish any
one, but in the cause of good morals,
honesty, good government, and tho
development of our state. It makes
no pretense to Infallibility but does
claim to be fairly Independent.
Whether a Salem merchant has
been conducting a lottery or not ought
to bo sifted to tho bottom by the next
"grand Jury. Itlsnotonly unjust and
unfair to all other business men to al
low one man to engage In tho lottery
business, but it is a shock and an
affront to the moral and religious
pbolplo of tho community who patron
Tho state fair la assuming unusual
proportions and promises to bo a II-
ounchtl success this year, as well us a
fgrcat fair from an exhibitor's stand-
ji6lrit. Oregon pcoplo need an awake
Ciing on this subject and should bo
.ij roused to tho necessity of attendance
and exhibiting ALL tho products
and resources of our commonwealth,
and elevate tho fair above a mero'
f There was never a greater case of
peanut politics than'fhab? Senator
McBrldc pretending to distribute Im
portant federal ofllccs In Oregon. He
alone can do nothing. All he has to
ulvcis within his own family circle
at present, ir he saves a few crumbs
for his relatives and dependants he
will tio well. Tho Mitch 11 push
flocking to his hotel at Portland Is
sickening. IToar, who rendered opin
ions backing the Mitchell organiza
tion or the legislature, has also writ
ten an opinion recomendlng tho seat
ing of Governor Lord's appointee.
If lie takes his seat In December he
will have quite is much to say about
federal offices In Oregon as Mr. Mc
Brldc, or Mr. Mitchell
European conditions are favorable
to a fair price for American farm
products, but not 6uch as to i,roduce
what we would call boom values, or
a bonanza condition such as would
advance property much. In an inter
view Hugh Smith, governor of the
bank of England, was quoted
"I do not anticipate any private
shipments of gold rrom England to
the United States this autumn.
There may be some rrom tho conti
nent rtom France chiefly. We have
a very fair harvest here, not enough of
course for our wants, but more abun
dant than the average. Besides that,
It is probable that the buying back or
American securities by tli-i United
States will tend to equalize matters,
redressing whatever balance there
"T can't see anv tanclblo rea3on for
believing exceptional shlpmeuts are
irnlnir. There has been recently a sub
stantial improvement in the market
for American securities, due almost
entirely to American buying.
"ThTcisa feeling that American
finances are still In an unsettled con
dition. There has been no such res
toration of confidence as would be cal
cu ated to make any difference in the
Impression that has prevailed for
some time, and as to your original
question my view is that there Is no
ground at present for expecting any
substantial movement of gold to
Auerlca from England.
"Thcie will be large payments com
ing due for wheat at its enhanced
'Mainly from the continent, not
from England, where the harvest has
been almost a bountiful one and to a
large extent Is saved already.
Francis Baring, manager of tho Ba
ring firm, took a similar view.
While there has long been a distinc
tive Pacific coast and Rocky Moun
tain literary product, only within a
few years have wc heard -of a middle
west or midland group of writers.
Two Chlcagoan writers, Mr. Opie
Read and Mr. Stanley Waterloo, are
very much liked In London. Mr.
Waterloo has written an Introduction
to his tlrst novel, '"A Man and a
Woman", In which he has something
to say about tho "school of literature,
lately born In the great region of
which Chicago is the metropolis."
"A first impulse is to say that no
such 'school' exists. There are not a
few writers In this region, but there
Is np well-defined school. Tho valleys
of the Mississippi and upper St. Law
rence rivers combine to make a vast
country between tho Alleghanles and
Rocky Mountains, In which country
a majority or the people of the United
States haye their being These mil
lions have perhaps, as much intelli
gence and are made up as much of
reading communities as are the peo
ple or any other great area In tho
"Until lately American lire was
chiefly portrayed as it had been or is
on the Atlantic coast, or as it was In
tho early lirtles on tho Pacific coast,
and as It Is no more there nor any
where else. Speaking broadly, Amer
ican lire west of tho Alleghanles and
east of tho Pacific slope has been al
most unknown territory In tho world
"Yet this territory holds most of
tho real bone and sinew of American
life, holds tho centre of population,
tho very core of tho continent of
North America. The life of the peo
ple of this area is largely concen
trated and fully Illustrated here, und
such life begins to find expression
through tho writers of Chicago and
the Middle West. They should, per
haps, rather bo called the 'Chicago
group" than tho 'Chicago school.'
Nothing approaching a 'school' or
cult of authors exists in Chicago and
probably nothing of a kind will ever
flourish here. The spirit of tho West
is too broad, too ullvo to tho immense
diversities of human experience und
character to admit tho sacrifice of In-dlvldiuilltyjt-o

Senator I. L. Patterson has now
been mentioned for collector or cus
toms, lias he given up tho state
trcasurcrship and secretary or state?
Of course, Senator Mitchell has re
turned to Oregon for law practice
only. The numberless offices promised
