much about it! It has until recently
been our reproach in the eyes of the
world that we sacrificed many of our
children to keep a national holiday. At
last this particular motor center of our
national conscience aroused action. We
have nearly stopped the sacrifice.
"We deplore the loss of life and
human suffrage which arise from dis
turbed conditions in our sister republic
to the south.
"The red pictures of the battlefields
of the civil war mako us quiver.

wars cost "early half a million dcH'J

"Now, there have died in the United
States in lie lust six months from pre

the Mexican troubles. A special student
of this problem connected with out ot

"Apart from those who will sorrow

"The truth is that a new social bill
of rights is being practically worked
out in our land. Men have not known
that they were working out a revolu
tion. If, however, we are to attempt to
set baie.k the car of social progress to
the point where it stood even ten years
ago, we would speedily become con
scious how far it had run in that in
terval. Indeed, the program of one of
our" political parties takes shrewd ad
vantage of this social consciousness
and bases its plea for power on tho
working out by law of sociul reforms.
Power Condemns Monopoly.
"The impulso of this mighty force is
felt in our political debates mid is re
flected in liarty platforms. One may
scarcely take up tho morning paper or
read his monthly magazine without see
ing, if ho has vision, tho daily, strides
this movement makes. It is the power
that condemns monopoly, It and no
other is the force which demands tho
removal of privilege. It is that which
says the creature of the state may and
shall bo regulated by the state.-
"It follows almost of course ihat ad
vantage will be taken by selfish men
of this great power to enhance their
personal fortunes, It is natural, ton,
that sincere advocnies of thu cause
shall sometimes be more impassioned
than accurate.
"We have become socially conscious.
Have few become socially thoughtful!

the goods on those carts and trucks
have been carried by the railway. That

the trouble to find out.
"It appears to be the truth, though
I warn you we are speaking now of a
subjoct on which our knowledge is
scanty, that many of the goo3s we use
or eat in one form or another increased
by the cart haud from seven
to forty times. That this factor of
cartage forms a very considerable por

It is a much larger element of expense
than are railway freights, possibly
many times more.
"I have been told ihat the cost of de

is greater than the combined cost of
transporting those potatoes from Maine
to New York City and delivering them

Entertainment Begins.
Indictment of the space grafter, the
spineless editorial writer and the four

afternoon when members of the Willam
ette Valley Editorial association met in
the auditorium of the commercial club
Viewing the results of the meeting from
various standpoints, it was on" of the
best, if not the best, ever held by the
valloy editors and newspaper iiR.iagers
It was brim full of spice that sort
which interests the man who has to
foot the billB for the operation of an
advertising and news medium. Thij
program proved an absolute seceess and
the visitnig editors had the time of
their lives during the time they spent
in the Capital City.
, Honesty Best Policy.
Tho association of newspapermen as
sembled in the commercial cluD and the
convention aws called to order by Presi
dent Hornibrook. Percy R. Kelly, judpe
of department No. 1 of the circuit
courts of Marion and Linn counties,
wa called upon to address the rusembly.
As UBual, Judge. Kelly delivered a
most excellent address. Viewing the
editors in the light of human ma
chines who act as the mouthpirce for
all the people and who herald the topics
of interest in every, step of life, Judge
Kelly said that the newspaper is one
of the greatest necessities of the pres
ent age and is generally becomii.g more
important year by ear. He sai l that
editors should not only be strictly hon
est in their general business transac
tion, but should bo very careful to keep
upon tho side of honesty and fairness
in their editorial columns and in their
reports of the general news of the day,
whothor it be in the line of law or in
