(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 material. 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, supremacy. 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.

The Waverly beet sugar refining plant is to be increased to live hundred ton daily capacity. The bicycle commissioner of Walla Walla has received a oar load of ce met which he will use this summer in making bicycle paths in and around the town. Spokane claims to have about fifty automobiles and talks about organizing an auto club and baying races. The undertakers will no doubt encourage racing. It's good for thler business. it. W. Harding, a Spokane man, last week bought (hive sections of land near Eplirata, Wash., paying therefor ten thousand dollars. lie bought Ihe land for an investment and expects to double liis money in three yi ars. The farmers in this part of the coun try are shaking bands with themselves over the prospects of a biff crop of grain this season. The winter snows aided by the rains this spring are bring ing the grain and fruit on rapidly— Qnlncy Quill The farmer! nil over Eastern Wash ington are expeoting to harvest one of Ihe largest crops, botli In acreage ur.il yield, that has cv <r been raised in this fertile seel ion. The Jiig Bund farmers are enthusiastic over the prospects of wheat. Tho heavy snow fall and a few good rains this spring has put the grain crop in excellent condition. Last Friday T. S. Ingraham, Brst grand engineer of the International Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineer*, which body has been in session In Los Angeles, Cala., for the past two weeks propped dead at his desk while the Brotherhood was in session. He had been a member since 18(i5. Apoplexy was the cause of his death. He was 09 years of age and was elected to tho of fice of first grand engineer in lS7!i. Seventeen carloads of range horses, numbering 4!)0 head, were shipped out of Connell, Wash., one day last week to Dickenson, N. D. The horses were owned by Walt Lemnions, William Floyd and George Borden, and were soid to Mr. McCarthy of Dlokemon, N. I)., for $9 per bead straight. Mr. Mc- Carthy purchased 800 head from the same persons siimc time ago, but only 500 wore secured on the first roundup. Several riders have star ed out to the range near the Watervill* country and will secure about 800 head more to be shipped about June 20. While in Spokane last week, J. T. Sullivan, who is at the head of the proposition to build the electric line from Bridgeport, on the Columbia river to Watervilla and some point on tlie Great Northern, Bald: The money for iis construction will be subscribed prin cipally by the owners of the land ndja ceut to the line, many of whom are sub scribing 1500 ier quarter section. The proposed line will pat*through a fertile (arming country and will be approxi mately 100 miles in length. Power for operating it will be generated from the Chelan river. Just where the line will tap the Great Northern has not been determined. Messrs. Babcocl; & Benson, employ a steam plow on their large ranch and farm near Trinidad. Last week, in conversation with the Quincy Quill man Mr. Benson said: "We have been turning over sixty acres of land each day. The furrows ate live mill s long and the plow stops onetime for coal ar.d water in that distance. The, plow runs at a speed a little faster than a horse can walk. It takes four men and two teams to keep the plow going, one team is used to haul water and the other to haul coal. People who have seen the work are surpised at the good job done. We are turning over several hundred acres." May Enter Forest liencrve 15y a recent act of C ongresa, settlers will be permitted to take upas home steads such lands In the toreel reserves as are adapted to agricultural pur- post's. , Under the now regulation*, when the preliminaries are arranged and the new order is in force, any person desiring to enter forest reserve land may make ap plication to the land office tor a home- S *The matter will then bo referred to the department and an examination be made by the forest superintendent. If $1 00 Per Year upon his examination, he shall be sat isfied thai the land is mure suitable for agriculture than for timber) and that the best interests of the forest reserve will be protected by allowing settle' inent on the land, the homesteader will bo allowed to take up the land. This will be allowed only to actual home steaders, who live on the land the full time and make Improvements. Any indication of an attempt to take such land tor any other purpose than bona lidt> homestead purposes will subject the land to forfeiture. By thus allowing settlements to bo made in some of the agricultural valleys in the forest reserve the forest super intendent;) and supervisors believe the Interests of the forest will be conserved. Such settlers will assist In watching the reserves for violations of the fire, ttame and timber laws and will make easier the task ol patrollng the forest under their supervision. 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 town. 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 ditch will mean the addition of many a new family for whom there is at present no room. Mr. Olive has been untiring in his efforts to secure for Mission the buiid- Ing of this Irrigating canal and his ef forts have met with success. lie has let the contract for a. portion of the ex oavating, hut will superintend most of the construction work himself. — Mis- sion Journal. 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 adopted. 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..
