HOPE OF LABORER
Alone Lies in Socialism According
to Theory of Mr. Strick
land. AN ADDRESS AT TURNER HALL
Congress Blade Up of Millionaires
and Trust Itepresen
tatlres. Frederick (J. Strickland, a lecturer
on socialism, addressed a gathering
of the faithful last evening at Turner
hall on Ihe subject. "Working Class
1'oliiics." The room was well filled
with those interested in the cause and
the speaker was accwrded liberal ap
plause throughout hia speech.
Mr. Strickland was formerlr a min
ister, but left his calling to spread
the doctrines f socialism and enlit
the sympathy of voters in the cause
which he deems to be the only salva
tion for the workingmen from their
present state ;f slavery, as he terms
It was thought that Mr. Strickland
wou!d score the old parties, 'but in
this thev were mistaken. While he re
ferred to the old parties a number of
times, it was not in an abu.-ive man
ner, and 'the entire speech was free
from the disagreeable features which
characterize the words of some of the
radical socialist leaders.
Laboring Hen Responsible
While he deplores the fact that the
affairs of the country are conducted
by the capitalists, he said the trouble
lies directly with the lalxiruig people
for allowing this state of affairs to
exist, lie said the voters hail become
accustomed to allowing someone to
dictate as to how thev should vote
and in this manner they hurt their
o n cause, and that when a man from
the ranks of working men would de
clare himself for oftice. his fellow-
workmen would support someone
from the ranks of the capitalists rath
er than one who might help to remedy
the condition of the laboring class.
Mr. Strickland said 1 lint congress
was made up of millionaires anil their
representatives who fostered trusts
and kept the workingmen in a state
The speaker advocated socialism as
the remedy for existing conditions
and urged his hearers to be socialists
ill the time and to talk it to their
fellow lalorers and to buy literature
for them if need be in order to start
them to thinking fin the subject.
Mionld Own Industries
Mr. Strickland took it for granted
that the audience was made up of
socialists who understood the doe
trines of socialism, as he failed to
bring out the principles on which the
party st;od more than than to staje
that the laboring men should be part
owners in the industries. He said
that the workingmen who create
wealth should own their positions and
not be compelled to ask the capital
ists for a position which lines the cof
fers of the magnates with gold. - The
speaker did not state how the social
ists hoped to bring about this result.
Local fans who are following the
career of (iraham with the Chicago
Nationals will be pleased to note that
he is seemingly making good, though
not in the position that he -signed to
plav. that cf pitcher. Three days in
succession he has played field posi
tion, yesterday taking part in a 1.1
nining game won from Taeoma at
Fresno 4 to 0. Crahinii played a clean
game in the field and made two hits,
coming in second with the stick in the
batting rallv that won.
Among the players who have been
awarded to the Pacific Coast league
by the National Association of Profes
sienal Baseball clubs are Oscar (ira
ham, with Kock Island for a time ia

CROWN GALL OF APPLES
NOT EASY TO CONTROL
Crown gall is a disease of the apple
tree which has been much discussed
among fruit growers and nurserymen
of recent years, ami seems to be one
of the hardest diseases to control.
No satisfactory remedy has yet been
found, JUut a number of experiment
stations are now working on this mat
ter. The -galls are simply wartlike
growths which appear on roots of cer
tain trees and plants, just above the
crown of the tree, heiice the name.
They also appear on the root. The
warts are rough and altogether tinlike
the enlargements of roots caused by
the attack cf woolly aphis, the latter
being spongy, with a smooth surface.
Prof. Tourney, of Arizona, says the
crown gall is caused by a slime mound
one of the lowest forms of fungi.
Some persons have claimed the disease
is ilue to certain methods of .grafting.
but experiments have demonstrated
that the galls can be formed on seed
ling t rees simply by planting pieces of
the minced galls near the. roofs of the
It has been found that the galls will
grow again when they are cut off.
and therefore it is not safe to plant
trees which are infected with the galls.
There is "a difference of opinion among
growers and nurserymen as to the
ultimate result of planting trees with
galls upon them, seine claiming thej
will grow an:l make good trees in spit e
of the galls. Others, however claim
differently, and to be on the safe side
one should watch carefullv to see that
no infected trees are planted, for the
trees will not only continue to produce
galls, but healthy trees in the same
orchard may be inoculated with the
disease by means of plow points.
The red raspberry is another plant
which is much subject to a gall
grow th. A number, of experiment sta
tions are now at work trying to decide
whether the galls are the same species
as the one which attacks the apple,
but it has been found that both apple
and peach roots can be inoculated
with the raspberry galls, so'that it is
not advisable to plant the raspberries
among the orchard trees.
In a series of experiment!' at the
Missouri experiment station Prof. W.
T. IJoward tried a great many combi
nations of remedies to overcome this
ili.-ea.-e. A great many of these had no
effect whatever uprn the galls, and
where the latter were cut away they
promptly grew again. Still others, re
tarded the growth of the galls some
what, but also injured the trees. Oth
ers prevented the galls growing, sim
ply because they killed the trees.
In Arizona some experiments were
conducted and it was found that
where the disease affected older trees
in orchards, it can be held in check
by carefully examining the trees every
season and cutting away all traces
nf the galls from the crowns. The
wounds are then thoroughly covered
with paste made after the following
Copper sulphate (bluestone) two
parts iron sulphate (copperas) one
part, lime (unslacked) three parts.
The three ingredients are reduced to
a fine powder, then mixed thoroughly,
after which enough water is added to
make a thick paste.
In view of the uncertainty as to the
disease and the fact that no satisfac
tory way has been found to fight
crown galls, it would seem to be the
part of wisdom en the part of apple
tree planters to carefully inspect all
trees to be planted a.nd try to keep
the disease out of their orchards.

Capt. Walter A. Blair is back from
the Tennessee river, whither he went
to purchase the steamer Megiddo for
Chattanooga parties, to superintend
the remodeling of the boat, hire-her
crew; and see her well installed in the
long run on the Tennessee river, be
tween Padueah and Chattanooga, in
which she will cut an important fig
ure in the future.
The Megiddo was the big houseboat
built for the peculiar sect known as
the Brethren in Christ, which had
overal members in the , t ri-cities sit
:ie time und came into collision with
the authorities in a way that gave it
considerable notoriety. Capt. lSlair.
however, has only good words for the
Rrethren in Christ.
"I lived with them for 10 days on the
Megiddo," said the captain, "and nev
er saw a more contented, harmonious

seem to le. Thev have lived on the
Megiddo for over two years, and have

had it. and have taken not a bit of
medicine or drugs in all that time. 1
attribute the fact to their remarkably
cleanly way of living. They eat no
pork, drink no whisky or coffee and
use no tobacco: eat lots of fruit and
nuts, boil all the water they drink,
and drink lots of it.
Tired or the Life.
"They were tired of living that. way.
and wanted a change. So they left
for Uochester, N. V., where they
bought four acres of ground with a
good house on it. and will make it
their winter quarters, while building
probably three commodious house
boats to cruise on the canals and
streams in New York state and
preach their faith to the people along
their banks. They had not been able
to reach the people from the Megiddo
as they had expected to. and that was
one reason they sold."
The Megiddo was a wide and roomy
boat, with large 9x12-foot staterooms.
quite a number on the main deck, ami
i texas for the crew. After securing
the boat Capt. Hlair had her exten
sively remodeled, removing- all the
cabins on the main deck to permit of
handling plenty of freight. He ad
vised her new owners, however, to
follow4 the plan he 'ffrfs' successfully
followed here, of developing the pas
senger trade, which has been rather
neglected on the Tennessee. The boat
has a run of 500 miles on the Tennes
see river, through as pretty scenery
as can be found in the country'.
