"L8E WHERE IN THIS ISSUE we print ft communication from D. C. Lew
jTi is, of St. Johns, who criticises Tho Capital Journal for its editorials
about Jim Hill. Mr. Lewis says ho has read and re-read the editorials
I i in quOBtion, and can find no motive for thoir being written. It is of
, course not Our fault that Mr. Lewis failod after so many readings to
understand the motive, for it was stated in so many words. For his benefit
we will ropoat some of tho reasons. We stated frankly that the building of
tho Hill roods were necessarily benoficial to tho section reached by thorn;
that the building of railroads anywhere opened up and dovulopod the country,
and that so far hs that f oature of Mr. Hill 's work was concerned he was bene
ficial to tho country. We Btated that while he was building these roads for the
benefit of himself and those associated with him, that bo was not to blame for
that, for the reason that that waB the great first causo of effort, to bettor
one's own condition.
We also stated that tho objection we had to tho laudation of Hill was that
ho was getting lots of praise handed him that did not belong to him.
We objected to him standing up in public and telling the world that tho
prices of Oregon lands were too high. Wo objected to his injuring the chances
of those Oregonians who have with ceaseless toil howad out a little farm, to sell
that farm. Theo hardy pioneers know that Oregon land, Willamette valloy
land, is not too high; thnt it cunnot bn brought under cultivation for loss cost
than tho prices asked for it; that it will produce crops that will yield profita
blu returns on tho prices asked for it, and that Hill's attack was unwarranted,
untrue and uncalled for. That is one reason wo resented his acts and words.
Notwithstanding tho rather verbose defense of Mr. Hill by Mr. Lewis, wo still
fail to recognize the flirt that he built any empires. His roads helped develop
the section they reached, but tho empire builders, whether of Minnesota, Wy
oming, or Oregon, are tho hardy and un afraid pioneers who went far in advance
of civilization, and braving all tho hardships of frontier life, paved tho wny
for the coming of railroads, which, whilo necessary to their full development,
Cairo in the i liferents of tho railroad builders. They did not build empires,
they simply exploited them, Mr. LewiB frankly fays ho "hopes tho Hills will
make good money off their 800,000 ncrcs of hind so they will havo more to In
vent In other worthy enterprises." So do wo, and we are not losing any sloop
fearing they will not do so. They can be trusted to attend to thnt.
Mr. Lewis thinks we are trying to pull Mr. Hill down, Tfo known as well
as wo do that nothing wo can say or do will affect Hill or Hill's railroads in
any wny. Wo realize the necessity of railroads and had as soon son Mr. Hill
build them as any one, for they aro all actuated by tho some motive, to mako
money for themselves, and the Hills give as prompt, as good and as perfect a
service as any of tho others,
Mr. Lewis 1b ap(nrontly somewhat of a hero worshipper and thinks Hill
worthy of boing made a fetish. We do not agree with him in this, but wo do,
after reading his article, agree with him in his statement that our "newspa
per space is too vnlunbla for tho use wo aro putting it to."
FIFTY-TWO RAIUIOADS unst of the Mississippi and uorth of the Ohio
and I'ototnan rivers have usked the interstato conimerco commission to
be permitted to increase their rates fivo per cent, basing their demand
on a shewing made by tho combined roads of having invested in the
betterment of tho roads and In meeting tho demands of commerce in the
past three years, a total of mnro thnn $0,000,000. At the name time these roads
make a showing that while they have oxpcmlod these vast Bums on their prop
erties tliut the Minting are $111,311,321 less than in 1010 when an apxnl for a
ten r cent raise was denied. The claim is made that this five per cent is not
really as much of an increase as tho railroads should have to make anything
like fair returns on tho investment.
Tlio Pennsylvania system had Invested more than $200,000,000 since 11)10,
and Its net operating incomo was $11,485,511 less tluin before this money hud
been put into tho roads.
This Is indeed a discouraging showing, and Indicates that business must
havo fallen off or that there aro too ninny railroads. Tt also Indicates that
poor judgment was used in making the investments. Against this view the
railroads say the Improvements wero absolutely noeessnry, in order to proper
ly conduct their business and to moot the demands of trade, If the shewing is
correct, tho roads will probably bo given the Increase asked for. Tho railroads
are entitled to fair, just and honest treatment, just the same as any Individual
or company is, and patrons of tho roads do not want their work done nt a loss
to the roods. The reason there is so much fooling against railroads Is not for
what they aro doing now ss for what they have done. However, thnt feeling
should bo dropped, and the railroads met frankly and fnirly when they are on
their good behavior, Kdlter Lorimer, of the Saturday Evening Post, expresses
it nicely in a little story. A man walking along the street wo suddenly bitten
iy a dog. The man had not bothered the dog and there was no reason for the
dog's action. The next day tho dog whs lying on the sidewalk and tho in an
seeing him, basted him with k stem,' The dog complained, and loudly pro
claimed that he had been struck without cause. He had forgotten thnt he bit
the man the day be fere, but the man had not. The railroads are not biting
any one now, but the people have not yet forgotten tho biting of tho net very
remote pant.
forcible. After saying that a pkunk doported from Skunkville as being too
mean and nasty for his fellow'skunks to associate with, and making other de
rogatory remarks and suggestions, he wound up,, with, the statement that "a
man who would deliberately poison another man 's dog, was a pedicular hobo '
who would deliberately rub up against a one-armed man and give .him phthi-
riasis." That's what lie said, but as to what he mc?nt, we pass.
While the city officials ore debating about the. decency or indecency, of the
tango as a dance, the upper circles of fashion in Portland try it out and say
it is all right. Tho socioty leaders with charming naivete say, "it all de
pends on who dances it, and that the way low-down people flance it is really
vulgar," but H loses this common and vulgar trait when the dancers wear silks
and satins, instead ot just common gowns.
It looks sometimes as though about all the offices possible had been created
but now Portlund comes to the fore with a new one. That moral conter now
has a "City Inspector of Dances." 1

A Small Fortune That Was Restored to
Its Rightful Owners,
Ono winter morning a little boy of
eight or ten years ran Into tbo office of
the United Charities In New York city
crying bitterly. Between his sobs he
gasped out. "Uncle has stolen mother's
front tooth; please get it bock for us."
His mother, then lying dead at home,
was an actress. In her youth she had
had a lnrge diamond Inserted In her
front tooth, and the advertisement had
proved profitable.
As the years passed misfortune over
took her; she wns deserted by her hus
band; the family larder was often
empty and the children hungry. Reso
lutely she refused to part with the dia
mond, always telling the children that
after he? death the money It brought
would support them for some time.
When the little mother became 111
with tuberculosis the children hushed
her fears about their future with reas
surances of the value of the Jewel. But
before the funeral a wicked uncle came
In the night and pulled out the tooth.
An officer wns sent at once to the
uncle with threats of arrest If restitu
tion was not made nt once. Tho mis
sion was successful, the tooth restored,
the diamond taken out. sold and the
proceeds used for the children. Con
