Now let us uce bow fast the trusts are "busted. 1 ' Oca civilization is only refined aud gilded barbarism. This civilisation of the world it in the throes of a new birth. , i Go right on with the work of ed- . Bcation; it is now well begun. Dkut is one form of slavery ---"tbe borrower is servant to tbe lender.'' Washington is redeemed. The republican barnacles have pried loose. The new -tate administration went into power Monday. Thing arc popping. The men who denounced the Dred Scott decision were pronounc ed anarchists. Debt trade may help the bankers and speculators, but it is costly to the producers. If old Prosperity don't show up now there have been lots of lies told about him. There should be enough money in circulation to provide against the enforcement of debt trade. Thk improved methods of pro duction would, under a proper sys tem of distribution, shorten the hours of labor. The church upheld chattel slav ery as it now seems to be doing debt slavery. It places property above human rights. The Washington elector failing to agree as which one should carry the vote of the state, after balloting two days, finally selected J. E. Fen ton, an outsider for the purpose. If a government is not adminis tered for the greatest good to the greatest number it is not worthy of the name of government. PACTS AND FIGURES. j Mr. Joseph N. Walker, a prom inent member of Congress, repre- j senting the state of Massachusetts, j en a recent speech in Congress, esti- | ] mated the entire indebtedness of the < United States-states, cities, counties i and banks of all kinds to their de positors, tho railroads and other corporations, and the various indi viduals of the country—at $31,488,- 1 000,000. The entire gold of tbe whole world ! is only $4,000,000,000, so that our various kinds of Indebtedness,eight i times all the gold the world pos sess* ii The entire gold of tbe United States in the United States Treas ury, in all the state, city, and coun- . ty treasuries, In all the banks, nat ional, slate, savings, and private I banks, and in tbe bands of tve peo ple is estimated by the officials of our Treasury Department at only about #600,000,000. \\ Thus, the debts on ing by tbe : . United Svues and the various other debtor:-; in the United States are fifty times as much as all the gold i*« the United States, in whosoever bands it may be. The yield of the gold mines in the United State- is but about $50,000,000 v year. Thirty one 101 l ion and four hun dred and eighty-eight million dol lars is the total amount, of all our debts, nsestlmated by Congressman Walker, who is a high authority on Ibis subject, equals 600 years of all tbe production of all our gold mines. The annual interest on 1,4*8,- j 000,000, which is the amount of out country's indebtedness, at live per cent a year is $1,574,400,000. This interest for one year is equal to thirty years of tbe total produc tion of all the gold mines in the United State-. Silver and gold coin are equal the money <>f the Constitution of tho United Slates. All of both gold and silver that tbe mines of tbe United States can obtain are needed. For want of money to meet their obligations to depositors, banks in different parts of the country are daily suspending payment, railroads are going into roeievers bands, man : ufacturer ssnd merchants daily are failing, property of all kinds is de ; creasinginvalue, farming lands and farm probucts are so low that 1 among agriculturalists tbe great-' tst distress prevails, and 5,000.000 laborers of various kinds are out of employment, many of whom are suffering for tbe necessaries of life, 'while robberies, murders, and sui- I cid.es attest to the disparing condi ! tion of our people. All the interests of property labor ■ and industries arc tending to a con [ditition of universal bankruptcy 1 and most pitiable distress only be cause there is lack of the requisite supply of money to give full em ployment to labor, and to represent \ j properly value as they should and j ] might be represented, j The present estimated value of | all property of tbe United States, is,; jit is true, twice the amount of all our debts, but that property is liable for all these debt first, The debt- j or's baly interest in the property subject to the lien and firt charge of the crekitor is very uncertain, and in many instances worthless, with money scarce and very bard and often impossible to obtain.

Rogers has accepted tha ! resignation of our fellow towtman, ! Frank Willams, member of state I fair commission. Gov, Rogers appointed Herbert Bashford, of Tacoma, state Librari an, we regret very much that our | freend O. M. Latimer could not be j appointed to this fat position. Gov. Rogers has appointed Jas. E. Ballainc. assistant adjutant general and military secretary with the rank of major. Tbe appointment of Ballaine as private secretary to the governor appears to give satisfaction to no one of any party, and his condem nation is heard on every hand. The third bouse meets every night and a jolly good time Is bad. Alphabet Mays, of Pomeroy, is speaker. The middle-of-the-road Populists are determined to elect a middle-of the-roaders if possible, and if they can not agree on the man, their next choice is Ceo. Turner, but. hopes are entertained that L. E. Rader will succeed our straw Sena tor W. C. Squires. Some of the middle-of-the-roaders are very ul tra and outspoken men who are doing us no particular good, but on the contrary have a tendency to disrupt the union of party. OUR FORUM. ; North Yakima, Wash, 1 18, 'ii 7. | Kditou Thk Dawn: The Herald of last week contains the following: "Purdy Flint, of Parke- Bottom, I, ! Yakima "county, lost 26,000 trees on account of the severe cold weather j lin November." - Ellensburg Dawn. Your informant to t--.ay tbe least, j ! was very much mistake!!. I never , made that statement about my or- j chard, or anything like it, and if I someone else has examined my or . chard and conic to that conclusion, j ! 1 beg to file a dissenting opinion. One conclusive reason with me is! that 1 haJ not that many trees to loose, «nd another is that I have not lost them. I made no state-; ment whatever, of the loss of trees i in my orchard until I examined it j thoroughly and carefully, some ten days ago, and my conclusions was,: and is, that a very lew trees are killed, quite a good many are dam-1 aged more or less, l»Ut a large per i cent of my trees, ] think, are not: seriously hurt, while a great many j iof them are not hurt at all. There ! has be en considerable damage to some varieties of fruit buds, but I think it too early in tbe season to form a positive conclusion as to the! lojjy i>i that way. If you will pub- i lisb this statement as cheerfully |and conspicuously as you did the I item referred to, I will send you a j box of the best peaches that grow on my orchard the coming season | —ii 1 don't forget it. Your*! truly, P. J. Flint. In answer to the above, we will j say that our information was had from one of Mr. Flint's neighbors. We published tho item as a matter, jof news and not to injure Mr. Flint jor anyone else, as be insinuates. We never rejoice over the misfor-j ' tunes of anyone—noi even our worst enemy.— Editor. G.
