There is hardly anything we
Toe Bristow, former U. S. Senator from Kansas
and now chairman of the Public Utilities Com
mission of that state, has this to say concerning
the present "situation" in Washington:
"Never except at inauguration times,
have the hotels in Washington been so
jammed as now. Hundreds of contract
, ors, salesmen and manufacturers besiege
tne departments ana special ooaras in
desperate efforts to get their share, and
more, of the seven billions which Con
gress has authorized to be spent in carry
ing on the war. There are hundreds of
lobbyists who are for war and high taxes,
but who want to get out of paying their
share, or as much of it as they can.
There are hundreds of railroad officials
and experts who want to drive thru a 15
percent increase in freight rates. Hun
dreds of others are applicants for civil
appointments or commissions in the
arm)r or navy. Altogether they make a
grand rush of visiting patriots, heroes,
economists, statesmen, experts, grafters
and all manner of men ana women."
While Mr. Bristow has been denounced as a
traitor by the kept press and revenue patriots, it
is well that the country has a number of men
of standing with courage enough to call a spade
a spade even in wartime. Germany can be
whipped just as well and perhaps sooner if our
government takes drastic and quick action to free
itself from the tentacles of the graft bunch. I
the food speculators are jailed or hung, wealth
made to pay its rightful proportion of the ex
penses or tne war ana criticism ot government
acts and officials is freely permitted, the war wil
find more favor with the people. There is no de
nying the fact that there is considerable "anti
war sentiment in the country, a portion of which
at least, is caused by the conditions mentioned
above prevailing at the present time.

Further analysis of the vote on the road bond
bill shows' it was put over by Multnomah, aided
by Clatsop, Columbia, Tillamook and Hood River
The last four named counties, three of which are
now bonded to the limits are the first beneficiaries
of the bill. The Columbia Highway is to be com
pleted first. The remainder of the state voted
"no" by over ten thousand. The eight Valley
counties, despite Yamhill's 1200, went against it
by over seven thousand. The measure carried
because there was a light vote in the rural dis
tricts iust as the Portland boomers figured it out
when June 4 was selected for the day of election
To prove this, one only has to look at the returns
from Baker county. There a recall brought out a
good sized vote and that county turned down the
bond bill by 1600.
"The big newspapers caused this war; now let
them help pay for it," is the trank admission of
several members of Congress. Of course every
interest, whom Congress proposes to tax, has
representatives in Washington trying to shift the
burden. to some one else, but none has the power
ot the Dig newspapers wnen it comes 10 influenc
ing Congress, and they may escape. However,
the big newspapers should pay and the little ones
in proportion for fifty percent of the little fellows
act ouly as faint echos of the big fellows. We are
pleased to pav our dollar knowing that others,
