Tli<- Ideal v* The Heal
(Written for the Echo!
(Continued from last week)
Independent of simple drudgery,
there are several honorable and legiti
mato modes of obtaining this result:
First:—All the forms of loans by
which one obtains the promises of an
other, secured by his lands and prop
erty to repay at stated times the money
loaned, with interest and discount.
Second:—By the exercise of superior
shrewdness selling to one's friends and
neighbors everything whose selling
value is decreasing, and buying of one's
friends and neighbors everything
where selling value is increasing.
Third:—Occupying and controling
some locality, instrument facility, or
department of exchange, crushing out
compelition, or pooling with competi
tors, thus becoming enabled to exact
moderate or immoderate toll from all
who wish to trade the products of their
labor that they do not want for the
fruits of others 1 labor that they need.
Fourth:—Occupying all the land, pos
sessing all the materials which in after
wars man will want to use, fencing it
in with title deeds, or bonds for deeds,
and waiting until successive genera
tions or emigration will leave large
numbers homeless unless they buy this
land,—powerless unless they buy this
Thus come into being monopolies of
all kinds. Monopolies of land from the
homesteader on the frontier, excluding
humanity from his tract of sand and
cactus with a receiver's receipt; the
townsite adventurer, hoisting his pirat
ical banner over every cross-roads, post
office, county seat and railroad station,
to the ilucid owner of ten thousand acres
and the owner of a city corner lot; mo
nopolies of business from the merchant,
hog buyer, lawyer of a country town, to
those who hold within their hands the
power to make or wreok a railroad, to
build or dwarf a city, to bull or bear
the markets of tho world.
In the effort to acquire and retain
these monopolies arise competition,
tierce, destructive,— among farmers
seeking to beat each other at the mar
ket, among laborers struggling to an
ticipate each other in getting service,
among merchants enticing each other's
patronage, among doctors and lawyers
striving for each other's clientage.
To prevent the reduction of wages,
prices, profits, tolls and charges by
this competition pools are formed, from
the trades unions, labor associations,
professional fee bills, mercantile agree
ments, up to the rules of boards of trade
and railroad schedules.
And the object of it all is what?—the
acquisition of power, not intellectual
power,, not power over dead matter
over elmos or irrational force but rela
tive power,—over men, —superiority,
In these various modes of business
are employed the distinguished talents
the ripe scholarship the enterprise
and energy of the race. Three fourths
of the waking hours of the intellectual
forces of the age is consumed in offices,
lounging in htores, loafing on corners,
haunting saloons,measuring each others
strength, watching, the market looking
for chances to buy at less than worth,
waiting for opportunities to sell for
more than worth.

Work on the Olive Dili li liax Begun
The party of surveyors under the sup
ervision of E. E. Hall of Seattle have
about completed the preliminary work
on the Olive ditch from the intake at
Mission Creek to Brown'l Flat above
The flrsl actual work on the ditch
was commenced Wednesday morning 1
at tlio beadgate. There will be a large
foroe of men and teams at work by the
early part of next week and the work
will then be pushed rapidly to comple
tion. Mr. Olire estimates that the
ditch will be completed in about three
months. When work is under way, it
is stated that about '-'0 teams and from
fifty to sixty men will be employed in
the construction. This will bo a big
thing fur Mission and the pay roll will
mean much to our local merchants. An
enterprise which will employ this num
ber of men for tho greater uart of the
summer should meet with tho moral
and financial support of every man in
this valley- Not only this, but it will
mean niucli to our town when this large
area of 3000 acres of almost totally non
produetivh land is reclaimed and made
ilie most productive in tho stata.
What is most needed in this vicinity
is a larger population and the Olive

Metric System mill Trudu
The recent discussion of the metric
system and the introduction in con'
grass of bills looking to tho ultimate
adoption in the United States suggests
a statement of facts regarding this
system and its relation to commerce.
Among the reasons offered for the
adoption of the system are these, enu
merated by the secretary of the na
tional bureau of standards of the do*
partment of commerce and labor:
First. — arnbiguity.uusatisfactori
ness and inadequacy of the old systems
or in other words, their inability to
meet modern needs.
Second The metric system is interna
tional, the only complete international
system of weights and measures ever
Third— it the simplest and most
perfect system, being decimal through*
outantl all its unit interrelated.
Fourth—The metric standards are
constructed upon the best scientific
principles, preserved with tho greates
care and may be copied with the high
est precision. •'
The great, argument offered in be
half of the metric system is its simplici
ty. Its base Is the' decimal base and
that every child has to learn anyway.
Only three terms are needed to express
quantities— meters for lengths,
grams for weights and liters for vol
ume. A few Greek terms with ailjec
torlal force complete tho entire
terminology. The United States
Statistician says two-thirds of a school
year would be saved to American boy»
ami girls by putting the metric system
In place of the other twelve or thirteen
systems. Carry this enormous saving'
of time into the counting houses of
the country, into all kinds of calcula
tion from the farm to the factory ami a
fairly go"d idea is obtained of what
the metric system would pave. The
chief argument against Its introduct
ion is the cost to thote with money
Invested under the present systems of
weights and measures. While thelossef
footed by a change as is being advocated
would certainly be considerable it is
urged that the repeated losses conse
quent upon continuing along the pres
ent lines would be very much greater..
