IN JUSTICE TO 0ITIZEN3.
Some anonymous correspondent or
toe gftlem Statesman does the C1U
sen's administration an injustice by
pereleteaniy representing that there Is
more gambling In Salem than ever
There may Im more, because the
town has grown In the intst live
years aud there Is undoubtedly too
much at all llinee. but that the Cltl
sens are In any way to blame for this
cannot be said truthfully.
The Journal does not agree with
many things the Cltlsens have dene
during the past yuar. but It believes
the Republicans ran wake little head
way by accusing them of being to
blame for increasing gambling
The Cltlsens never proteased In the
past to extirpate gambling. They bare
A bald head,

never, on the othor hand, licensed
games nor sharod, so far as we know,
in the profits of gambling directly
or Indirectly. J
Let us be fair and honest in this
matter. The Statesman correspond
ent says marked cards are being
used In the skin games practiced by
the gamblers. That Is said to be a
common practice in stripping vic
tims. And any man who will go and play
for money with a gambler deserves
to be skinned. It Is one gambler
skinning another- dog eat dog and
he deserves neither sympathy nor
Hut If the correspondent knows of
markd card games being played for
money and will tell what he knowu,
we will wager him that Citlzon Chief
of Police Gibson will arrest and pros
ecute the guilty roan.
SEATTLE POLITICS UNCERTAIN.
A two-column article In the Sunday
Oregonlan pictures Seattle as being
on the eve of a political ovorthrow.
That city Is about threo thousand
to the good Republican on national
politics. Mayor Hume was olectod
last tlmo by a few hundred.
The article roforrod to 'pictures Se
attle as being tho worst town moral
ly on tho Pacific CoasL Portland
Isn't a clrcumstnnco to la
Tho reputed closing up or all the
gambling was only a sham. Tbo placo
Is as "wide open" as oevr, In spite
or what has been published.
It Is doubtful If gambling can be
exterminated In any Pacific Coast
city of any size.
The honest ruth and there Is no
other truth is that gambling Ij a
rlc inherent In human nature and
society as It Is organised today.
The doctrine of chances and fatal
Ism by many religions leads to It as
certainly an frosts bring on rain in
The desire to speculate In real es
tate, In mining stocks, In futures on
products, from wheat to dry goods and
church pews, Is gambling.
In the meantime look out for a po
litical revolution at Seattle.
INVESTING IN DIAMONDS.
A Journal advortlsor urges peoplo
to Invest in diamonds, and there Is
something In It.
Consider how rapidly wealth Is
multiplying In tho hands of tho reo
ple all ovor tho world.
Thousands can wear diamonds.
whore formerly ono person could af
ford that luxury.
It Is said the Amorloan pooplo
nlone havo three-fifths of all tho dia
monds in the world glittering on tholr
All tho rest of the world Is trying
to ajst those dlnmonds and wo should
not be surprlsod to see diamonds In
crease In value fabulously.
As diamonds become mora scarce.
Imitations will become more frequent
and more perfect, flint only proves
the crave for the stones Is growing.
The value of the diamond Is only
n fiction of the human imagination
and n creation of whnt Mrs. Eddy
terms mortal mind.
Its value grows out of a belief in
Its rarity, and In this respect It Is
more liable to attain fictitious pro
portions by speculation
THE PORTAGE ROAD.
The Salem Capital Journal has the
following, in the form or an editorial
"The Oregqntan could bulkl two
buildings If It could beat the portage
road, and lock up the Inland Umpire
for SO years to come."
Mean and dirty Insinuations like
these reveal the quality of the na
ture that produces them. In this par
agraph the Insinuations are two.
PI ret, that the Oregonlan opposes the
portage railroad at The Dalles; sec
ond, that It Is paid, or e&neets to be
paid large sums of money, presuma
bly by the O. It. A N.. for doing so.
The Oregonlan devotee Its leading
editorial to an extended defense of
Itself and claims now to be In fnver
of the construction of the portage
railroad at The Dalles.
Its defense U very lame, and In the
course of It the admission Is made '
that It might take ten years to bnlld,M
The OregoBian started in to till Its
news columns and Its special reports
(row Washington. 1) C, with matter
to bring about the repeal of the state
portage railroad bill
Then it became frightened and ouly
suggested In about forty different
ways that the state appropriation be
used to buy the right of way for the
Of course the Orenouian is opposed
to the repeal of the State portage ap
It wants the money, used ro buy the
right of way from the O. R & N. Co .
beeause the canal bill "accidentally"
eantains no provision for getting any
right of way.
What a faroe! The great national
stQTerautent of this empire passing a I
dollar canal alongside its own water
way, and then having to beg tho state
or Oregon to buy the right or way or
a powerful corporation.
Of coUrso, the Oregonlan wants the

been wanting it opened those forty
years and it has remained closed and
will remain closed forty years more
If It can have its way.
WAGES AND COST OF LIVING.
(Stay ton Mall )
According to figures compiled by the
bureau of labor at Washington, wages
and the cost of living have almost
kept pace with each other during re
cent years, and thero Is an exagger
ated idea as regards the advance that
either has made. Commissioner
Wright figures that lnstoad of the cost
of living having advanced from one-
quarter to one-third It really only
shows an increase of from 15 to 17
per cent. The Increased wages re
ceived by laborers. It Is figured, have
been equal to the increased cost of llv.
Ing, and the general statement Is
made "that the condition of tho labor
Ing man is bettor today than over bo-
roro In tho history or tho country."
This Is perhaps truo In rogard to
most trades, but there nro notable
excoptions for Instance, tho peoplo
who draw fixed salaries year after
year. As a rule, clerlis, bookkeepers,
school teachers and a host or others
nro paid today on tho eamo basis that
they wero flvo years ago. Such per
sons, with no Increase in their in
comes, have had to meet tho Increased
cost of living, and also in many cases
tho Increased cost of labor In many
trades. Take, for Instance, a clerk or
bookkeeper who owns his own house
and receives the same salary today
that he did five years ago. Not only
does he have to pay higher prices for
his living expenses, but any repairs on
his house or property cost him more
than they did five years ago, both on
account of the charge for material
nnd from the Increased labor cost as
It Is upon this class of employes
that the increased cost of living that
has unquestionably come In recent
years has fallen most hoavlly, nnd it
is a vory largo class and a serious
PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS.
(Pendleton East Oregonlan.)
Tho public school has over boon and
ever will bo tho basis of popular edu
cation among tho massos. Epeclal-
ly has this beon truo In tho West,
whore sparsoly settled frontlors ron
dorcd private schools nnd denomina
tional schools Impossible. But since
tho Western states havo shakon off
tholr most forbidding frontier aspects,
and communities have becomo donso
onough and pormanent enough to war
rant It, tho private school, In which
tho spiritual sldo, as wall as the
strictly mental sldo or llfo may be
developed, has become a need and a
IKselblllty. One vital fact in support
of the private school Is that It must
bo thoroughly healthful, mentally and
physically, oqulppod with modorn
conveniences, complote in Its courses
of Instructions and up-to-date, or it
cannot survive. Its oxcollence Is tho
basis of Its patronage, whllo tho pub

for th echlldron of tho masses must
attend It, no matter under what diffi
culties. Hereafter in the West the
private school and demonatlonnl
schools nre fixtures, and theeo will
draw from the public school just In
proportion to the Incompleteness of
the public school. The private school
Is a benefit to any district, from n
financial standpoint. For Instance, In
Pendleton are 300 pupils drawing pub
lic money, yet attending the two
academies, thus relieving the district
of the cost of their education, at the
same time contributing to the public
fund. If these S00 pnpils were to be
placed In the publio schools It would
iiecesslta.c a monthly expenditure of
at least $S(W for extra teachers, to

Food Eaten Is Worthless Unless Di
gested Some Stomachs Must
Food takon Into tho stomach which
from tho nnturo of tho food or the
condition of tho stomach, is not di
gested, is worso than no food at all.
This Is a truo statement as far as it
goes and a groat many dyspeptics go
only this far with thomsolvos that
bocauso tholr stomachs do not do the
work given them, thoy must bo given
loss work; In othor words thoy must
be starved. It would be just as son-
slblo for a business man who Is un
ablo to do a1 his own work to cut
down his buslnoss to his own capacity
as It Is for a man to starvo himself
to rollevo his stomach. Tho sonsl
bio buslnoss man omploys help and
goes forward with his buslnoss. Like
wise tho sensible dyspeptic will em
ploy help for his stomach and glvo
his body propor nourishment.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets actually
do the work asslgnod to them. They
relievo weak and overburdened itom-
nchs of a great portion of digestive
action. Their component parts are
identical, with those of tho digestive
fluids and secretions of the stomach
and thoy simply tako up tho grind
and carry ou the work just the same
as a good, strong, healthy stomach
I would do It.
On this account Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets are perfectly natural in their
action and effect). They do not cause
any unnatural or violent disturbance
In tho stomach or bowels. They
themselves digest the food and sup
ply the system with all the nourish
ment contained in what Is eaten and
carry out Nature's plans for the sus
tenance and maintenance of Uie body.
How much more sensible is this
method than that employed by many
sufferers from weak stomachs. By
this means body and brain get all the
good, nutritious food they need and
the man Is properly nourished ami
quipped to carry on his work and
perform his duties. He could not
possibly be In proper working con
dition by starring himself or employ
ing some new fangted
food that does not contain enough
nutriment tor a year-old baby. A
strong man doing strong work uuat
be properly fed and this applies to
the brain as well as the bod'.
Stuart's Dyspeysla Tablets, by re
lieving the stomach of Its work, en
able It to recuperate and regalh Its
normal health and strength. Nature
repairs the worn and wasted tissues
Just as she heads and knits the bone
of a broke Untb, whw wis, of course,
not used during the process of re
pair. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for
sale by all druggista at M cents a
