IP THIS COUNTRY does not turn to .Socialism iu tbo next few years it will

the fact is that it is so strenuously uphold only when somo big company is
checked in its 'efforts to grab still more of the proceeds of labor. It wi'l be
noted thnt nil tl!? so-called lalur troubles ara iu evidence in tho mining
regions. But a few years ago those mines and tho land that contained thorn
were all government property. They belonged to tho wholo people. Then for
j few dollars th?y v.eio turned over to privnte owners. In tho development
and working of these mines the companies, not satisfied with eiwrmous prof
it", have tried, and aro still trying to got still greater profits by reducing the
portion that has gone to lubor. The ronilt was tho breaking out of that old
fight between Capital and Labor.
Some poet has snid that "Virtue moots with its reward, but quicker
when it wears a sword." This might bo paraphrased to read: "In all
strikes labor fares tho worse tho other fellow owns tho purse."
In West Virginia the othor day Mother Jones, a venerable woman who has
devoted her life to bettering the conditions of lubor, and who has done this
work moved only by love of humanity, and by enmity to orgauizod grood

was deported by state troops. She had dono nothing but advise the mon to
stand firm and to insist on the things hey demanded when the Btrike was
declared. She did not advocate anything iirlawful or teit't:ice to tho Iaws
in any way. Yet she was deported, and for no othor reason than that the
mino, owners wanted her removed. Tho state officials, always cowards when
Mammon appears on the scene and potbollicd wealth shakes its purse, readily
obeyed the commands of tboir master and sent the militia to escort this old
woman from that soction of the country. She had a right to be thore and she
lad violated no law; why then this outrage at the behest of the mine owners!
She is only a woak old woman. She has no money, but she has what corpora
tions have not a hoart. She also has a bitter tongue, and this is what tho
fatted sepulchors of American money and liberties feared. It is somothlng
for this poor old woman to be proud of that she made these great ones of
the money world, show their fear of her and of tho truths she told. Here wo
liavo a picture that may woll make u all sit up and study. On tho one sido
is an old woman, penniless out armed with truth, taken by force from the place

She was deprived of her rights as an American citizen at the behest of Wealth.
Hho had vlolatod no law. She had not wroeked a bank, or betrayed a trust.
She had not impoverished thousands in wrecking the Now Haven or some
other railroad and taking the results of the crime to herself. She had never
corrupted a legislature or debauched the voters. She had never bribed a
judge or purchased a jury. She had never cornered the country's food supply
and lovied unholy toll on the manses using hunger as her handmaid. She had
none of this world's goods, but she had a human heart, anil with it she had
a liittor and a flexiblo tongue, and clonn hands and conscience. Because b1i

enemy that must bo gotten rid of and sho was, Tho corporations wild to tho

It is however, encouraging m that it shows how timid and bow weak those
great corporations are when faced by danger. How ono poor old woman nindo

Jl'DOK ALFRKD S. DKNNUTT Monday shied his castor in tho ring and
announced himself as a candidate for tho democratic nomination for
governor. Judge Bennett snys after the criticism in tho Oregon Journal
of a re it dnte, it would be cowardly for him not to mako the nice as
tho challenge is made directly to him. The criticism to which he objects
was In a communication signed "Democrat," and which pointed out that ho
had not supported West. Tho Judgo looms to bo of the same opinion about
the governor now that ho was three years ago, and mukes no bones of it, He
did not liko West as a candidate, for tho office and says ho has seen no rea
son to change his mind. Judge llennett is ono of tho most able lawyers in
the state, of irreproachable character and has no fads. One thing in his favor
is tho geographical situation, ho coming from Kastern Oregon which has not

doing in the political way that will set the mark for the state for some years.
One of the first and saddest bits of work will be to get the large number of
political corpses safely out of the way, and after that funeral, watch out for
fireworks. '
Governor West's admiration for Dr. C. J. Smith is only equaled by the
high esteem in which the doctor holds Governor West. It is a case whero

According to lalo dispatches the railroads am at their old tricks down
about Klamath Tails. Recently an order was nilidfl stopping logging on Wil
liamson and Spraguo rivers. It is claimed this is In the Interests of the rail
roads. The logs can b0 delivered for 21 cents a thousand' by water, but It
costs 11.50 by rnil. Tho timber lands avo principally owned by Indians, who
are of right, propet subjects for ox ploitntloii. They should bo used to It

Just how would bo a fine time for that newspaper hobo to mako another

Springfield, 111., Jan. 27.r-To prevent
the "riding of a free horse to death,"
Illinois' new public utilities commis
sion has found it necessary to limit the
number of complaints that may be made

ruling which will define the nature of
the complaints it will receive, will be
issued in the near future. Whether it

over $17,000 and transacted much other

over an hour.
Minton brought up the police matter
and backed his claim that the three
new patrolmen are ineligible, becauso
of not having lived here tho entire
three years past, with an opinion of
City Attorney Page. Pago declared
that tho law was very clear on the

the only way seemed to be to file
charges. For this reason, it was rec
ommended that the petition be placed
on file and no action taken.
Cannot Smoke or Buy Tobacco.
An ordinance passed unanimously
by the council provides that no minor
under 18 years of age can purchase to
bacco in any form, whether he has an
order from his parents or not. Tha
minor is also barred from smoking on
the streets or in any public place or
having tobneco in his possesion. For
tho first offense it is provided that the
minor shall bo admonished, and for tho
second tiino a fino of $2 to $20 shall
bo imposed.
Ecwcr Refund Claims Allowed.
Sewer refund claims totaling $17,651,

there was a question as to ownership,

citing that many people had. been un
able, for some reason to filo refund
claims, and it was ordered that notices
bo published in both daily newspapers,
calling on them to present thoir claims
at as early a date as possiblo.
Sewer Building Postponed.
Tho sower committee reported ad
versely on all sewer propositions peti
tioned for rocently, and under consid
eration, asserting that funds wero not
available at this time. The committee
promised to act on the petitions as soon
as funds were in Bight.
Repairs on the two-horse wagon at
the Forty street station, totaling $70
or $80 and $7 repairs on the city hall
fire engine were authorized.
A special officer to wear a star and
act without pay was authorized for Sat

No New Lights.
Because tho Portland Railway, Light

year of its lighting contract with the
city, and, therefore, cannot be required
to place street lights, the light commit

After Cummings had suggested the
iness of a petition to be received, has
not yet been determined, but this is
thought by some to be the only solution
for the problem.
There is scarcely a city in the state,
it has been discovered, that has not on
file a score or more of old-standing
squabbles with utilities companies, and
some which offer quarrels between
competing concerns. All have availed
themselves of the opportunity offered
by the now utilities law, and the com
mission today is literally deluged. Un
der the law creating the commission
'thero is no limitation on the number
or kind of petition that may be filed,
and some of tho commissioners aro not
yet sure how fnr they may go in their
restrictive rulings.

Dayton, O., Jan. 27. "Bad boys
make bad girls," said Judge Roland V.
Baggott, of the juvenile court here to
day. "A boy can't grow up to decent
manhood on starvation wages of $5 or
a week no more than a girl can.
And there are many homeless boys in
this city and in other cities who are not
making any more than that. Boys, like
girls, get discouraged over the hopeless
struggle and enter a life of crime.
We've interested several good men in
movement to build a home where
working boys on small wages can se
cure board and lodging at a minimum
of $1.75 a week. Our plan is for fifty
men to give $100 apiece each year for
five years and build the home." Judge
Baggott, who has a roputation of "al
ways starting something" recently re
fused to send girls cited for delin
quency to the Deieware state school for
girls, stating that their chance of ref
ormation is vastly better in some good
institutional school.
