ABOUT V ARIO U S THINGS.
The w eek’s news has been quite lively. W e have had the usual
murder, we have had a police scandal, we have had considerable
polities, we have seen Additional .Market Inspector Joe Singer ousted
by the Board o f Health, and we have a strike in our midst.

And one of our cheerful contemporaries is still trying to get a
municipally-owned steamship line to the Orient.
In other words, we
have had quite a usual week o f it.
There isn’t much o f interest in the murder.

to have coveted finery that somebody else stole; and a little later the

told the hoys that there wasn’t any scandal at all.

was over a matter o f $2.00 a week in additional wages, and the work
done is not worth the extra wages.
In fact, men who were getting
fourteen dollars a week, and who struck for sixteen, are now being
replaced by workers who are perfectly satisfied to get seven and a
half dollars. The strike was called for the purpose o f inflating wage
values unreasonably— and, ns such, it is doomed to fail.
Aside from these things, and some others, the week just closing
lias been productive o f many weird things in polities. The Bull
Moosers have gathered together almost two dozen strong— at Salem,
and have nominated a ticket that is wonderful to behold. Through
their machinations, one A. E. Clark, an attorney, has been hurled into
the Senatorial campaign, and will doubtless help to split up the Re
publican vote some more, so that a Democrat can again he returned
from the sovereign and Republican State o f Oregon. Having Dem
ocratic Senators is now a habit with Oregon. The Bull Moosers have
also attached themselves to the L a fferty kite, anil have tied the can
to Daniel Kellaher, as have the regular Republicans.
Here in little old Portland politics have also been simmering more
or less. The Hon. Jonathan Bourne has returned to his home, and
is looking things over, preliminary to getting into the field once more.
Mr. MeCusker is smiling and hearing up under the failure o f the
Bull Moosers to accept him ns a standard-bearer.
Mr. Selling says
he is much pleased and satisfied with the outlook over the State; and
Mr. Mulkey is also smiling and happy. To date, it is a case o f pijj;

If one thing more than another proves the ability of the International
Correspondence Schools, of Scranton, to raise the salaries of poorly paid
but ambitious men and women— to raise Y O U R salary— it is the monthly
average of .100 letters V O L U N T A R IL Y written by students telling of
salaries raised and positions bettered through I. C. S. help.
'i OU don't live so far away that the I. C. S. cannot reach you. Pro
vided you can read ami write, your schooling has not been so restricted
that the I. C. S. cannot help you. Your occupation is not such that
the 1. C. S. cannot improve it. Your spare time is not so limited that it
cannot l>e used in acquiring an I. C. S. training. Your means are not so
slender that you cannot afford it. The occupation of your choice is not
so high that the I. C. S. cannot train you to till it. Your salary is not so
great that the I. C. S. cannot raise it. T o learn how easily it can be
done, mark and mail the attached coupon.
