Essay, "What Is Socialism, and
Would Socialistic Conditions Be
Desirable In This Country?" by L.
V. Bierce. Socialism is a name giv;
en to those who are opposed to an or
ganized system of government. To
hold property as we'l as pleasure in
common. This country has witness
ed several attempts to better the
conditions of man, but the leaders
have made mistakes. The world is
not ready for atheism nor free love.
However", all persons have certain
inalienable rights, the love of life,
liberty, etc., and it is true there are
wroHga" to be righted, but much of
the poverty and ignorance is due to
those who suffer the most there
I. P. Sperry said, "Socialism is a
beautiful theory where all should
work for the good of all. All at
tempts atsocialism so far have prov
'enfallufes.'" P. D. Bwige said that certain so
cialistic conditions might wellbe ap
plied to city government. Trusts are
organized upon socialistic principles.
M. C. Scott said that this is a ques
tion of Importance and upon which
he had read some and thought some.
The problem Is with us to stay until
it is settled and settled right. Peo
ple's wants are greater than ever be
fore and they are objecting to the
unequal accumulations of wealth.
There1 is a feeling1 prevalent that a
more equal sharing of the profits
must come, that those who earn the
most of It shall get their share.

"In what way does It pay to be
come a member of the grange?" was
discussed in"brief as follows:
S. P. Baldwin: "It pays to be a
member on such a day as this and
meet fellow members from various
parts of tho county. It pays to eat
such a dinner as we have had. We
can read in the papers what the
Boers are doing, but we can't read
what our fellow farmers are doing.
It pays to stop work a little earlier
on grange night. It pays to make
some preparation when a topic is as
signed us in the grange work. It
pays from the educational and social
standpoint. Some people must let
others know the workings of their
mind every once in a while and the
grange is a good place to air their
"What is the greatest question be
fore the American people of today?"
John Emmett thinks the liquor
question is the greatest, it effects the
most people and it costs the. most
M. C. Danforth said: "The people
are moving forward very rapidly and
the great questions come and go as
tho tide. Imstweekit was Dewey,
this week the yacht races, and very
soon the election will attract the
most attention. But one of the
greatest questions is what shall we
do with the people? How shall they
be fed and clothed?"
H. A. Peck said that the control of
the production and the price of com
modities is the greatest issue. For
instance, the production and the
price of sugar are controlled by tho
trust, and this affects all the people
in every degree and condition of
life. This is a greater question for
the American people than the- ques
tion of the Philippines.
M. Crawford said that all things
considered, the liquor question is the
greatest, becauso.it affects the most

the liquor power is making such
headway that I don't know where it

I. P. Soerry said : The liquor in

putting their votes where they will

people could hold the balance of
power if they would do the same.

"Whilst the defendant then claimed
and now claims that he was in no
way liable to plaintiff by reason of
the matters and things set forth in
plaintiff's petition and by reason of
the alleged grievences therein set
forth, yet for the purposes of buy

promising all of said matters, he
agreed to pay plaintiff the sum of $56

sum." He offers to pay over the
amount and tenders it to her provid
