FRIDAY. JUNE 15, 1000.
The Weekly Northwestern
Miller, a marked copy of which
has reached our table, speaks dis
paragingly of a flour trust which
it states is contemplated by the
millers of the Pacific Northwest.
This is news to people of this
section, but if such a move is in
prospect, the following discourse
from the above-named paper may
be perused with profit:
"If the coast millers are simple
enough to get entangled in a
scheme to form a flour trust they
will deserve what they will un
doubtedly get that is, the worst
end of it. Money may be going
begging in the financial centers
of the Pacific coast; with condi
tions in that money market we
are not familiar. If so, it is
possible that investors can be
found for flour trust securities,
but it the promoters of this plan
imagine for one moment that
they will be able to float any por
tion of their stocks or bonds in
the eastern money markets, they
are doomed to bitter disappoint
ment. Some time will pass be
fore any investors in these mar
kets can be found to even look at
a flour trust security. The rapid
and disastrous collapse of the
United States Flour Milling
Company was an object lesson
which eastern investors ate not
likely to forget. In spite of all
warnings and in spite of the re
peated and complete exposure of
the fallacy of the scheme, foolish
people were found to buy these
securities. The story of the
stock market will best illustrate
what happened to these lambs.
Early in September, 1899, the
preferred stock of the United
States Flour Milling Company
was quoted at 84. On Sep
tember 21st stockholders felt a
jar when it dropped to 50, a de
cline of 25 points in one day.
From this figure it slid grace
fully downward, to the amaze
ment and disgust of its friends.
In November 15 was the bid
ding price; by December 1st,
14c. It celebrated the glad new
year by being quoted at 12c on
January 1st; by the end of Feb
ruary the company was iu the
receivers' hands, having become
a ghastly failure, and on May
I7th at a sale of its bonds in
New York, they realized but
28 c, while its preferred stock
is now quoted at 2c and its com
mon at ic. If, after this ex
perience, any one has nerve
enough to talk about forming a
flour trust, in the hope that the
general public can be induced to
purchase its securities, he should
be looked after by his friends, for
he is not in full possession of his
faculties. Possibly the Pacific
coast millers who are figuring on
this combination do not intend
to offer their stocks and bonds to
the public, and have other means
of providing the sinews of war.
Nevertheless the undertaking
will be a failure just the same
and those who go into it will
live to regret their action."
The man who believes that the
malicious attacks upon President
McKinley by a portion of the
press and public are without pre
cedent, or that it is only of late
years that the entire public
has not been wholly satisfied
with the acts of its admiuistra
tion, should brush the dust off of
his history. Washington and
Lincoln, whom we now almost
deify, passed through such an
ordeal of abuse, as makes the
present censure of McKinley
sound like commendation. The
man who believes that our presi
dential campaigns are conducted
less decently than iu the
early days of the Republic,
has not read of the method pur
sued lor the election of that idol
of democracy, Andrew Jackson.
Here is a tribute to Washington
published in his day by the Phil
adelphia Aurora. It has all the
ear-marks of a present-day attack
upon McKinley:
"If ever there was a period of
rejoicing this is the moment.
Every heart in unison with the
freedom and happiness of the
people ought to beat high with
exultation that the name of
Washington from this day has
ceased to give currency to politi
cal iniquity and to legalizing cor
ruption. A new era is now
opening upon us an era which
promises much to the people, for
public measures must now stand
upon their own merits and ne
farious projects can no longer be
supported by a name. It is the
subject of the greatest astonish
ment that a single individual
should have carried his designs
against the public liberty so far
as to have put in jeopardy its
very existence. Such, however,
are the facts, and with this star
ing us in the face, this day ought
to be a jubilee in the United
Growing along the sidewalks
and cross-walks of Corvallis is a
most bountiful crop of thistles.
While the bloom is on these
beautiful and fragrant plants,
there may be some excuse for
permitting them to stand, but as
these ripen and the myriad seeds
are wafted on our afternoon
breezes to every point of the
compass, practical people see the
danger of too much of a good
thing, and ask that the bonny
thistle be harvested. It is some
body's duty to do this. Now is
the proper time. A few even
ings or the cool of the morning
with the aid of a scythe, much
could be accomplished toward
improving the appearance of the
city and exterminating these
pests. A hammer and nails
would also be found handy iu re
pairing some bad breaks in cross
walks, which would be exposed
by the mowing of the grass and
weeds which now conceal them.
Some people are hard to please.
Not satisfied with the recent
great republican victory in Ore
gon they are asking that Bryan
stump the state again this fall.

the Philippines. We warrant he
is even now masquerading in
K. R. Co. Banquet
Last Monday evening L. I.
Gregory, field manager of Ore
gon and Washington for the
King-Richardson Pub. Co., of
Springfield, Mass., gave a ban
quet to some 25 of the students
who are going to represent the
company during the summer.
At S p. m. a strong representa
tive company of students assem
bled in the dining parlors of
Hodes & Hall, where a brilliant
table awaited them. Several of
those present have previously
been in the field and these re
cited several humorous incidents
which had happened to them
while canvassing. After the
heavier part of the meal Mr.
Gregory read a letter of some
length from Judge H.E- Hadley,
judge of the superior court of
Whatcom county, Wash. In
closing the judge said: "Such
an experience cannot fail to be
valuable to any young man
aside from the immediate finan
cial profit it may be to him. I
have never had any other exper
ience in as short a period of time.
that has been as valuable to me
in all the relations of a profes
sional and business life. Always
under every circumstance be a
thorough gentleman and you
will ever be received and treated
as such. A rousing toast to
the judge showed that the boys
appreciated" his kindly interest
and excellent advice. Mr. Greg
ory continued iu a neatly-worded
and humorous speech, iu part as
follows: "This is the close of
my first trip to Oregon. Before
coming here I had heard much
of Oregonian's webfect, but from
observation of the Corvallis boys j
I find that some Oregonians can
waddle a little taster than some I
other people can walk. (Laugh- i
ter.) On
this the eve of your I
going forth throughout the state
I bespeak for you the ears of
all Oregon. The result of your
labors depends upon your will
power, pluck and intelligence."
A hearty toast was then drunk
to "our manager" and the meet
ing ended with warm handshak
ing which showed that a spirit
of unusual enthusiasm and good
feeling existed among the com
pany present.
The Politician.
The politician is my shepherd;
I shall not want for any good
thing during the campaign. He
leadeth me (the night before the
election), into the saloon for my
vote's sake, he filleth my pockets
with good cigars, and my glass
of beer runneth over. He pre
pareth my ticket for me in the
presence of my better judgment.
Yea, though I walk through the
mud and rain to vote for him

is elected, straightway he for-
