Qovtmor Cbambr!aio is in favor of a
railroad commission, providing h can ap
point it. There i no question but what
such a commission clothed with powr
would mak a record in thie state and it is
hardly likely that a Republican legislature
will give him this opportunity. It is hint
ed around that Governor Chamberlain
wilt become a candidate for United States
senator in due time and with an active
railroad oommission of his creation would
give Urn material for campaigning that he
would not be slow in taking advantage of.
State 'Superintendent J. H.' Aekerman
recommend that school teachers be paid
higher wage than they now receive, and
auggasta that thy b paid for twelve
months io th year; ae th average num
ber of monthe taught la only a little over
tii, thie' would practically ' double the
present wage paid.
It was to be hoped that the county di
vision question would b passed at thie
meeting of .the legislature but if the Ore-
gor.ian epeaka advisedly, it is to be brought
up. Possibly the best way to decide this
would b for the legislature to permit the
people of thie county to vote whether or
not they want the county divided, which
could bo eubmitted at 'ho next genera'
election.-' -If a majoriry of the people want
the county divided, that would settle it. It
should bo divided. !
