Kvery day of the Chautauqua was full of splendid enjoyment and helpful and Inspiring feature.

From the opening address by Mana ger Lowury to thu last "Oood Night" by Norton's Hand, thu great gather ings of the people were delighted and benefitted and helped by the splendid aerlesot lectures and entertainments.

Kvery musical number on thu pro gram was of a high class, The Anitas sextette was with us Tuesday, Wed nesday and Thursday, and proved one of the best attractions that has ever visited Oregon, not because it would' have cost you $2.00 per single admis sion In any of the larger cities, but because Its music and the singing were of a class that Is seldom seen on the Chautauqua plat form or even Ira v. oiling. They have only classical mu sic In their icpcrlolrcaud piesciited It In a way thai the audience under stood and enjoyed It. The haiidniim bets six ladles, ah of whom aretaletit- ed musicians, and singers with lovely voices. Norton's hand of ten artists were with Us the last three days of the as semhly. and was another of the splen did musical treats that was with lis during the nine days' season. Their classical musical was classical because the expression and harmony was there. Some music Is only classical In name, not In rendition, not sothK and the visitors to the Oregon Chan tauiiia surely enjoyed It. Mr. Ilryan was the afternoon speak er at oui Chatatiiua Saturday, and he proved to he a grand attraction, a, id peihaps the strongest of the whole session. IVople came from all quart els to hear him democrats, republi can, women, childieii and all. The big tent In Cleuwood I'aik was pack ed to t In "stav poles." All seals weic tilled and scutes stood about on the oii'sldc.

The great reforms were coming and 1 1 icy meant much for the people. It was easier lo convert one who lav orcd than one who opposed. The gieat danger was In the dis position on the part of some reform ers to kick each other, lather than the other fellow some who could not get what they wauled would liy lo prevent other lefotincis Irom getting what they wauled, lie felt that It he could raise a man f I (tin the dead he would not care to kill a man to. try It. but would take a dead man Hist. The way to get icforms was to unite -.11111 get them, lie came with a message of hope, and that on every line man Is making progress, and the power or money to dcgiade was lessening, and that the march of progiess in the orld of In telligence, education, morals ami the science of government was steadily forwanl. and In morals it was equal to I hat ol any other.

Such transactions should make thu American people stop and think ami tho signs of the times Indicated they wete thinking as they never did be hire. He spoke of the awakening of such men us Itudolph Spiccklcs, l.ouis llrelndles, Frederick Martin, Tom h.

There is a great moral awakening of thu world's conscience, and vve were advancing toward popular gov ernment ol the people for the people and by the people.
