We have received a protest from an unknown
party against sending tobacco to the soldier boys.

mander would not hesitate to send into battle a
body of soldiers who had been smoking, he would
never, unless very much pressed, take chances
wiih them it they were in various states of intoxi
cation from drinking whisky.
"The governor does not have the right
to remove a member of the legislature.
I am satisfied that Eaton is a loyal citizen,
and that his motives in participating in
the People's Council of reace at Chicago
were honest, but indiscreet."
Thus does Governor Withycombe answer the
demands of certain Lane county citizens who
asked for the removal of Allen Eaton as a member
of the legislature. As the late Senator Harry
Lane was persecuted so it looks as if Allen Eaton
would be. Lane county appears to be the home
of a number of zealous citizens who allow their
patriotism to be autocratic rather than democratic.
In the opinion of the Newport News, "with
two Republicans like McNary and Olcott on the
ticket" the Monitor's "reference to the old
machine is strictly out of order." But before
either McNary or Olcott gets on the ticket they
will have to whip the "old machine", as the News
calls it. The News must not permit itself to be
come so optimistic as to believe that the stand pat
faction will accept either McNary or Olcott with
out the liveliest primary scrap in the history of
the state. Our Newport friend should keep his
powder dry and be ready.
Any movement to eliminate the rule of
the political boss and corporation hireling
has some merit. Monitor.
In this effusion our esteemed contem
porary must be making some reference
to Senator Chamberlain. Woodburn
Independent.
We had no particular individual in mind and
it had not occurred to us to include the senator in
this particular class, and to have any of his friends
think that the shoe fits, is a mild surprise.
The Oregonian had two violent eruptions last
week concerning Secretary of the Navy Daniels,
and there were like occurences in other parts of
the country at the same time. These outbursts
occur at frequent intervals, but Josephus, the
sailor, heedeth them not. Mr. Daniels evidently
is confident that the people prefer that he stay on
the job and continue to confine the munitions and
steel makers to a reasonable profit.
"I don't know how long the war will last," says
W. J. Bryan, "but 1 know that the quickest way
out is straight thru." That's it; good teamwork,
a few effective smashes and the kaiser's war will
be over.
The
Safeguard
By PETER G. TISDALE
I was dining with my friend Ed
ward J, Emerson and his wife when
the news caiuv that tlie Chinese people
were vibrating between a monarch
and a republic. Emerson was a cler
K.vinuu and bad done ten yearn' mis
sionary work among the Celestials. I

were fitted for a free government.
"So people," be replied, "are fitted
for a free govern merit except those
who have reached a hijru degree of In-
tulliKt-ure. There are a few Chinese
who are up to the standard of our
rch! era civilization, but there are mil
lions at them who are sunk In the most
alijo't superstition. When I first went
to China I bad a good deal to lcurn

I could make a Christian of blm ha
would lnfluonce others, and I set about
the work of his conversion. Ha ap

whut I wilil to him, but I could not

We were on tho lower tloor. My wife
