"Those who advocate government!

are granting the socialistic conten- i

SO ample to corrupt and to force out

will have constantly an advantage

If regulation is impossible, what
then are we to do? Mr. Bryan said:
"First, we must strengthen the
!representative character of the gov

rect vote of the people.
"Second, as to the railroads and j
other natural monopolies, we must
try faithfully and fairly to regulate,

them and return to the competitive
system, and the ways to exterminate j
these trusts are several." He gave

WJIVT THE PRESIDENT OW A
CRE-Vr CORPORATION SAYS
Prorio , itdy-, pfter panics, heads of
great ce-i potations have ignore:! Ihe
lu.blh-'s natuial interest in fuMre
possibilities and have refused infor
mation. Xot so today. Judge E. if.
Gary, th 71 president of the T'ni'ed
States Steel corporation, has recent
ly shown admirable frankness on the
questions of the business outlook
and the relations of his company to
the so-called new dispensation or
Rooseveltia policy. Judge Gary
"I am an optimist; forced to be
one by the conditions of the country
as I see them. We have been travel
ing in the clouds of uncertainty and
distrust. Sometimes it has been dif
ficult to distinguish the way; but
soon the clouds will beg-n to disap
pear and are shall see that we are on
the mountaintop 'of (o-i'mrtunity.
This country produces from fhe
srround annually not less than ten bil
lion dollars in value, and a larse
portion of this consists of necessities
which the of this conn try and
n'ther cc ■need and will pay
frr. -whi lo - "ortion of our ex-1
penditures for consist
or luxuries. A little economy for the
n°\t twelve will result in the
retention in his country of the pro
ceeds of the balance of trade, and
we shall bare ample funds for our
business necessities. Tn spite of the
demagogue or the anarchist —and
one is about a s bad as the other —
this coun'rv is going to he success
ful and prn=-r>erous."
On the second point Judge Gary
"Freque-itly remarks of a personal
character are made in jest which are
supposed to be made In earnest. I
do not deal in personalities. I do
rot believe, in vituperation nor In
fulsome praise. There are questions
under consideration at this time of
the greatest importance. They re
late to the effect of the utterances i
and action of the President upon
business conditions. I do not hesl- j
tate to state in public that the policy
of the present administration, crlti-j
cised by some and praised by others,
has had a great personal influence j
upon your president (Judge Gary
himself) who occupies a position of
responsibility. The declarations of
the president have increased the feel
ing of responsibility of many of us
toward our competitors, our custo
j mers, our employes, and the. public
generally. In my opinion business is
done on a better basis and on a high
er plane because of the conduct and
example of the President; and it is
due to him that an acknowledgment
of this fact be made by those who
,are affected." —Appleton's Magazine.

when Mr. Yancey and Mr. Kummer

way to Spokane. They stopped and
one of them entered the hotel. The
sight of the auto seemed to frighten

seemed to tremble with fear, and at

The Rir, Bend Empire of Water*
Major A. M. Anderson, right-oN
way agent for the Great Northern
J railway, has been in Watervllle and
I the surrounding country for the past
ten days engaged in buying right of
j way for the Washington & Great
; Northern railway along their line of
survey up Moses Coulee and north
east from Douglas through the big
Practically all the right of way
j from fifteen miles northeast of Wa
! terville to the Great Northern at
i Columbia Siding has been purchased
]or contracted for and as a general
rule the farmers through whose land
the line runs are willing to take a
' reasonable price for their land, yet
i there are always those who, when
i there is no chance for a xailroad. are
j willing to give several acres for a
I right of way, but when the railroad
i wants to boy they want two or three
! times what the land is worth.
| However, Mr. Anderson believes
he will experience very little trou
i ble in securing a right of way all
j all along the. route at a reasonable
I figure, and of course where he is un
! able to do so the same will be settled
i While the buying of the righ' of
! way does not necessarily mean that
the road will be built at once, yet we
are informed by Mr. Anderson that it
is the intention to begin the work of
grading in a few weeks, or just 38
; soon as the necessary tools can be
got on the ground, and the road
completed at an early date as possi
ble. This cannojt he accomplished
this year, but It is believed that tho
| read will be ready to move next

j The chief constructing engineer
spent several days inspecting the
; route, last week and will return
rgain shortly to further inspect md
oversee the work.
Since the arrival of thi se gentle
men in the country everybody has
been talking railroad and there has
heen various reports as to where the
line Would run. It has been intimat
ed by some that Waterville would be
off the map, the road not running
nearer than from four to ten miles.
Bat, personally, we are not alarmed
about this, believing that when the
road builds Waterville will be con
certed with if.
There has been some difficulty be
i tween the Washing'on & Great
