CIRCULATION BENEFITS THE PUBLIC.
During the past "week the circulation of the Daily
Capital Journal has held up well above the 5000 mark, ac
cording to the records of the Audit Bureau of Circula
tions, which accounts for the distribution of every paper
printed each day. That means considerably more than
25,000 readers daily. The record is as follows:

In a recent article in the Saturday Evening Post, Will
Payne has performed a useful service in making clear the
precise nature of Bolshevism.
It is not "anarchism", as so many people thought
lessly call it, but rather pure socialisf, as preached by its
founder and prophet, Karl Marx.
To most men socialism means something else, a sys
tem of highly organized democracy. That is because
most people have not read Marx, but have derived their
ideas from socialists of more moderate brands, who have
departed from pure Marxism. American notions of so
cialism have been colored largely by the comparatively
conservative, rational teaching and work of the English
Fabian socialists, represented by George Barnard Shaw,
and by such American moderates as John Spargo.
These moderates have taken the best of the doctrines
suggested by Marx, and ignored the rest. In particular
they have not swallowed his doctrines of the complete abol
ition of pnvate property and the monopolization 01 pol
itical and economic control bv the working class.
It is these radical Marxian principles the Bolsheviki,
or "extremists have founded their revolution on; , They
want to do away altogether with the "capitalistic class",
or "bourgeoise"; whether by taking their property, or by
killing them, seems immaterial. They want the "state"
to own and control all created wealth as well as the means
of production, and they want the state to be governed by
Thus Bolshevist Socialism is not democratic at all.
Democracy is the "rule of the people." It implies
participation in government by all the people. In a dem
ocracy the millionaire, if there is such, has as good a right
to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as the manual
laborer; the professor or banker or doctor has as good a
right to citizenship as the shoemaker or hod-carrier. The
Bolsheviki are preaching, and so far as they can, practic
ing, a "proletarian dictatorship."
It is turning czarism upside down. Instead of the
czar tyrannizing over everybody else, the working class
is to tryannize over everybody else. And this is the system
to which millions of Russians, and some Americans, want
to subject the whole world.
We hope the dry nation crusaders will remain liberal
enough to allow us to fill up occasionally with loganberry
'juice or Appleju.
Three weeks more of the legislative session with al

WANTING A CHANGE.
Sometimes when I have played my lyre until my hands
are sore, I feel a great, profound desire to try some other
chore. The stubborn glebe I'd like to breakwhatever
glebe may be or voyage of adventure make across the
subbing sea. I'd like to roam in distant lands, through
jungles dense and damp, until my lyre bespavined hands
are free from writer's cramp. I tell my grief to Butcher
Jones, and he is heartsick, too; he's tired of selling mar
rowbones, and things that make a stew. I talk a while to
Pastor Gregg; his troubles poignant are; sometimes he
thinks he'd give a leg to be a movie star. I tell my hopes
to Banker Burns; his spirit .also aches; he'd like to peddle
patent churns among the cross roads jakes. And every
delegate I meet is feeling just the same; he'd think his
life was doubly sweet if he could quit his game. The gro
cer wants to rise and preach, the preacher wants to groce;
the te-cher thinks it fierce to teach, when better jobs are
close. AH fellows have a wild desire to do the other things;
and so I take once more my lyre, and claw around and
sing. . j

The words "merchant marine", so frequently heard in
these days, have but a vague meaning to many people, es
pecially those more remote from the great seaports.
As a matter of fact the ships now in process of con
struction are simply an extension of our railways in all
their familiar forms, as is made plain in the following ar
ticle published in the New York Times : '
"There are four general types of ocean vessels com
parable with American railroad service. The fast passen
ger lines, carrying only mail and baggage for .cjargo, are
the equivalent of our fast limited passenger trains. These
can operate profitably only between our Atlantic ports
and Europe. Next is the passenger and cargo liner, which
compares with the regular passenger train, and runs on
regular routes and schedules to the Orient and South Am
erica. There are fast cargo liners corresponding to our
fast freight, and conveying perishable commodities as
they do. Last, but far from least, is the tramjp steamer,
traveling slowly to any port desired, which is the seamate
of the slow freight train, economical and deservedly num
The inland shipper and the farmer are familiar with
all the railroad facilities. Many of them realize but little
how these four types of marine carriers now under con
struction will extend the service of the trains from their
doors to all the earth.
Nebraska and Kansas will be able to ship directly to
China and Japan. Wyoming and New Mexico to England
or South America. And the markets of the world will
consume all our farmers can ship, for most of the mari
time nations are importers of food products and will be
glad of our supplies.
Probably the meanest creature in existence lives in
Independence, Oregon. Recently the bottles containing
pennies for the Belgian babies were stolen by this carica
ture on humanity.
Congress, which put off until this year the work it
ought to have done last year, keeps right on criticizing
the military management of a war that was won last year
instead of this year. . .
Seattle never does anything except upon a big scale.
The strike up there, for instance, is to be the biggest thing
of its kind ever staged.
Before the peace conference gets through with the
labor problem it will know a whole lot more about work
than it does now.
Mandcl to know she would still keep a
servant if she did not receive thi large
salary ho had paid her that Brian
could afford to let her do that.
"I can't tell you how grateful I am,"
Mandcl replied as he rose to go and
rather sheepishly drew some plans from
his pocket. You sec, I took your kind
ness for granted and brought the plan
of the Murry house in Boston along. It
is to bo entirely re-decorated." He then
explained the different exposures of the
rooms, the lay-out of tho grounds, etc.
"I have taken the liborly of speaking
of you to several of my friends," he
said to Bria-n, who accompanied him to
the door, "1 told them you had chana

now ready for business. Ifou do not
