TUESDAY JULY 24, 1800. THE PARTY OF FREEDOM. The folly of the charge that the republican party is the party of "imperialism" becomes as plain when the party's recent history is examined as it does when its more remote record is consulted. President McKinley was right when he said that "the republican party broke the shackles of 4,000,000 slaves and made them free." The republi can party also broke the shackles of 8, 000 ,000 Filipinos, 1,500,000 Cubans and 1,000,000 Porto Ricans. All of these peoples along until the United States emancipated them in 1898 were living in a condition of servitude as abject as that which the negroes of the Sonth were in at time in 1861 when Alexander H. Stephens, the vice president of the confederacy, declared that his government had slavery for its corner-stone, says the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. And the element of the people who were in control of the United States in 1898, and who directed its policy then and since, was the republican party. When the history of the great events of the past two years is written by impartial persons, after the prejudices and passions of the present time are dead, the republican party's connection with the emancipation of 1898 will hold as large and honorable a place in the annals of time as did its connection with the eman cipation through Lincoln's pro clamation of 1863 and the thir teenth amendment of 1865. The same party which freed the 4,000,000 beings whose enslave ment the democratic confederacy would have made perpetual struck the shackles off the io, 500,000 inhabitants of Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippines. The recent act will fill as credita ble a place in the history of the century as the earlier achieve ment occupies! In the present work of human enfrancisement, as in the earlier task, the republican party is as sailed by the democracv. The emancipation proclamation and the thirteenth amendment were attacked continuously for jears after thev were carried into operation. Clement L. Vallan digham in 1871 warned his party that it could never win an elec tion in this country again, and never would deserve to win, un til it began to pay some atten tion to accomplished facts and stop fighting the things which the rebellion had settled. There is room for another Vallandig ham at the present time to tell the democracy that the flag which is up in the Philippines will stay up, and that the free dom which the republican party has given to the islands' inhabi tants, and which the democrats would end by forcing the Amen cans to give up all control of the islands, is to be perpetual. Val landigham was the most virulent copperhead and anti-American in the United States in 1861-65, but he learned something by his follies and defeats. The Bryans, Joneses, Stones, Stevensons and Baileys of 1900, who are assail ing their government in its maintenance of American author ity in the Phillipines, will meet the same disaster which con fronted Vallandigham when he wrote the war-a-"failure" plank of the democratic platform of 1864. Let us see after the elec tion if they will, like their great copperhead progenitor of a gen eration ago, learn anything from adversity. Speaking of the recent action of the board of regents of the O A C in abolishing intercollegiate athletic contests, the Oregonian says: Perhaps a way may be found to correct these gatherings without their entire abolition, but meanwhile the Corvallis school, at least, will take no chances. It is earnestly to be hoped that the cause of athletics, may be advanced by this step, and if support of the measure has proceeded from desire to discredit physical culture among our youth, the desire may meet prompt and decisive disappointment. Oppo nents of athletics are three in kind those who hate them as Byron hated the waltz, because he could not dance; those who are moved to a spirit of anguish by the sight of human beings in a state of en joyment, and those who denounce college sports as a cover for their passion for the brutalities of the prize-ring. If any such are among the regents of the Corvallis insti tution, their joy should be shortlived. An overwhelming majority for William McKinley in Benton county next November, would be a grand tribute to the memory of Thomas Benton, the great ex pansionist, in whose honor this county was named. State Fair. - The state board of agriculture is making a great effort this year to make the state fair a represen tative agricultural and live stock show. The premium list is out and is being thoroughly dis tributed throughout the state and personal efforts are being made to attract the attention of farmers and stockmen to the very liberal premiums offered. Several counties in the state are preparing a county exhibit for the fair, for they realize it will be a good opportunity to ad vertise their county in a most practical way. Each exhibit will be a lecture room, and an object lesson for the home seeker where he can get information along intelligent lines, and will be worth many dollars in adver tising the county's resources. The live stock show will be without question the best ever held on the coast. Breeders all over the country are preparing to exhibit at the fair this year. There is an opportunity here in Oregon lor the farmers who have been running in debt raising wheat, to turn their attention to the profitable production of beef, mutton and pork, or engage in dairying which has already taken its place as a leading paying in dustry in this state. There is a demand for the best specimens of all breeds which will continue to grow for years to come, and there is nothing that will encourage this industry so much as stock shows at state and county fairs. John M . Gates. The remains of John M. Gates, who died at Heppner, Or., on the evening of July 19th, were interred at Crystal Lake cemetery at noon Saturday, Rev. Hughes, of Hills- boro, officiating. John McPherson Gates was the eldest son of Hon. V. Gates and Helen Gates, and his parent's home for the past lew years has been Hilleboro. The deceased wan born at Dewitt, Iowa, May 16, 1873, and had lived in Oregon1 for 20 years. His parents at one time resided in this city, and his father was once superintendent of the Oregon Pa cific R. R. He was very bright, and received his early education in this city. He was member of the Portland High School olass of '91, and later succeeded in accomplishing what few have done completing the four-year course at Stanford Uni versity in three years. To this close applieation to study is at tributed the complications that run into Bright's disease and later caused his death. It was desired to bury the re mains in Corvallis on account of relatives who were buried here years ago. Oliver Gates, brother of the deceased, arrived in this city Friday to make arrangements for the funeral. The family arrived an the noon train Saturday with the remains, and proceeded direct to the cemetery. A number of friends who live in this city met the sad procession at the depot and followed the remains to their final resting place. John M. Gates was of such sterling char acter that wherever he was known there are sad hearts and sympa thy for the bereaved ones. Teachers' Examination.
