Tlmt utty man sliotild exult over
the downfall of His fellow mutt is a
thing both unmanly and cruel in
the extreme. All of us Have our
iiiiDcrfections to a trrcnter or less
extent. To be otherwise would be
more than human. Hut there
are those whe are cruel enough to
tukc recent developments in the
case of the senior senator from Ore
gon and roll them in their con
tracted minds as a child would a
sweet morsel in its mouth. The
men who arc doing this are a clnas
of cheap politicians who would
have people believe but for their
appearance in the precinct or ward

to the dcuuntiou bow-wows post
ImMi'. We have no apology to of
fer for any man who violates his
oath of olliee or the laws of the
land. On the contrary, he de
serves punishment, full and ade
quate for his misdeeds. Hut there
are cases, and many of them, where
we have the profoundeM sympathy,
and the case in point is on.- of
them. If recent development aie
correct, and .Senator Mitchell is
guilty of violating the laws he,
himself has helped make for the
guidance of other jwople, we Ik

four miles of deep waterfront where
docks, mills and factories are spring

places, built large cities. The Pcntn

25,000 per month. If you have only
a little Intelligence you know what
iiicli a payroll means to surrounding

Run water, Portland public schools,
