The Red Cross Campaign.
The Red Cross is a thorough­
ly organized humanitarian So­
ciety. knowing no race, creed or
nationality, but administering to
the suffering wherever found.
In times of war it is so closely
allied with the military as to
become an auxiliary of it. At
other times it is a great civilian
organization extending relief to
people in regions stricken bv
earthquake, fire, plague, and
kindred calamities.
This week the Society is en-
gaged throughout the nation in
an effort to raise $100,000,000 to
be used in War Relief work.
Every house in Portland will be
visited in behalf of this fund.
Men of wealth and influence are
not only giving large sums but
are also giving their time for the
week to help raise Portland’s
portion of the fund. We hope
the people of the Mt Scott Dis­
trict will consider this question
carefully. When they have done
so we know they will not be
found wanting.
We can not
give large sums but each one
doing his part will make a sum
which will help materially and
be a credit to the District —

Non-Partisan League.
We are to have an attempt made
to establish the non-partisan
league in Oregon.
It accomplished wonders in
North Dakota, and has several
wonders on the way.
It is silly to elect state servants
because they belong to one party
or another along national lines.
The jjeople of Oregon are silly
to elect republicans, or demo­
crats. to assess their property,
to administer their state affairs,
to pass state laws, to regulate
county or city matters.
The democratic party in Oregon
is simply the Federal push with
some camp followers. It has no
opinions on any state issues, and
in reality no state organization.
The republican party has
nothing but the state and county
officeholders to look to for direc­
tions, and a firm hope of being re­
turned to Federal power some
sweet day.
It has no state issues, and like
the democratic officeholders, and
crumb catchers, it is afraid of
any. It has no reason for exist­
ence so far as principles go, any
more than the democratic party.
There are live issues. Ask any
officeholder to discuss them and
see him wiggle and twist and back
and shy, like a two-year-old colt
at a red umbrella.
So perhaps we will have a non­
partisan movement with a live
platform. It is going well in
ten other states. It will make
the political life of some of our
stat« officeholders a wild night­
The first effect of its mere
threat to take root is to awaken
the state administration to the
necessity of selling those farm
loan bonds.
Maybe they will
get busy.
The state Grange proposes to
go after the fish and game official
excerscence on the body politic.
It is of no more use than a wart
on a boy’s thumb, and when it
gets as big as the thumb it is sure­
ly time to operate on it. The fish
and game graft in Oregon has
gotten to be almost as big an
