Public Control of Railroads. [sub-head,] The Voice [M, is tt a paper, or an
editorial opinion?]   
     Where to draw the line in determining what the public should own and
administer is what frightens many as soon as this question comes up... if a line
must be drawn, we suggest that it be drawn so as to include within public
ownership all those industrial systems which require from the public special
grants and exclusive privileges. This would include railroads, telegraph lines,
express companies, street car lines, elevated railroads, canals, bridges, docks
and wharfs, in addition to those already under public control, such as water-
supply, light-supply, the common highway and the postal system. The
objection that this is a long step toward socialism is met by the common sense
reply that we have already taken long steps toward socialism since the days of
feudalism and no one wants to retrace these steps... [more]  +   [cp]

Health  Pr-60  CCH Sept 30,1890 
...Prof. Bettina, an Italian celebrity, has just effected two wonderful cures; one
of leprosy and the other cancer 6f the stomach. The patient in either case was
virtually dying, and he tried innoculations  from one to the other, believing
that the bacteria in one case might destroy those in the other. It proved so, and
hundreds of cases are to be similarly treated.  Microorganisms are said to be
the prime cause of most of the diseases...  It is not so unreasonable on this
assumption that one kind might be an enemy of the other, and in the fight both
become exterminated.         +  [cp]

imagined that a couple of ladies had entered his room and he came out yelling

had his wife stolen and had a brother die way back in China land, and it all

Lodi  [M a correspondent] At Newport.
    ...We (my friend and I) have been nearly everywhere on the bay in the last
day or two: Bay City, Marshfield, Porter, North Bend, Glasgow, Empire City,
Rocky Point and to-night are at Newport at a party dancing like poppets in the
devil's dream.  Eight feet are generally consigned to each set in the ball room. 
The management here have generously given us sixteen. We are being well
treated; the people have probably never seen the like before, which may be the
reason we have had an excellent midnight supper, served in a house some
distance from the hall.  The music is good; the dancing is good, and we are all
in a good humor.
     Newport is one of the brightest watch fires in the Grande Ronde [Grande
Ronde in italics] of the labor sentiment of Coos county.  We are surrounded
tonight by the brawny arms of labor; we are communing to-night with men
and women accustomed to the hardest manual labor. We are all on a level --
no red tape, no affectation. Men dressed as fashionable beaus to-night, clothed
in the coal stained habiliment of the miner tomorrow A liberty loving people
is my people; a laboring people is my people, for the vagrant breezes of
liberty and freedom nestles in my very hair, and I’d rather grasp the coal
stained hand of a miner than the gloved one of a mi1lionaire.  Toil on, friends
in Newport, and while you heave the coal, or drive the drill you have the
conscious dignity of. knowing that ere long you will be the acknowledged
rulers of the-land, when the death gardens will no more be planted with
forgotten ghosts, when the harvest of labor union will wave, when a chaplet of
contment [as typed; must mean contentment] rests on each miner’s brow, and
a garland of peace and plenty enshrines the portals of his home. Goodnight.
