Roosevelt and the Iowa Idea.
Some of the Democratic papers are saying that
President Roosevelt has been converted to the Iowa
idea regarding the tariff. The fact is, however, that
(iov. Cummins, one of the leading exponents of the
Iowa fad. has been won over to the President's side on
that question. According to revelations which have
just Wen made, the President, in the interview which
no nad with the Iowa governor, showed that the latter
stood on the platform of the . l.ouis convention of
lM'ii, on which MeKinley was nominated the first time.
That platform set forth, "We are not pledged to any
particular schedules. The question of rates is a prae.
tieal one, to be governed by the conditions of the time
and of production. The ruling and uncompromising
principle is the protection and development of Ameri
can labor and industries." Cummins acki.owledged
that he stood on that declaration. The presumption
is that a platform along that line will be adopted in
the approaching Republican convention in Iowa.
The Republicans carried out the platform expression
of 1 Mil! when they enacted the Pimiley law of 1VJ7.
Th it act has given the country satisfaction No sort
of a trade statute can be etermll, and some time or
other the Dingley law will be revised by the Republi
cans. It is well to remember that that act was one of
the big factors in the restoration of the prosperity
which came to the country very quick'y after the
Democrats were turned out of the government and the
Republicans were put in power. The act has not yet
outlived its usefulness. ,The President is convinced
of the truth of this projosition. There would be no
sen-e in making any changes in this law at the pres
ent time. No sane Republican in the country who
thinks of the damage that tariff tinkering has done to
the party guilty of it when it was done just before an
important election will urge revision bv the Congress
which meets next winter. That Congress, in its first
term, will be in session at the time the two big con
ventions meet. A scheme of taritf revision which
should be entered on in the session which begins in
December 11(03, would carry the enactment of the bill
to a date a tew months previous to the election.
The papers which are saying the President has sur
rendered to the Cummins faddists ought to know that
William B. Allison i3 to write the platform of the
coming Iowa convention. It is well known that Alli
son has always been against the immediate revision
folly. He was hostile to Cummins' influence in the
dictation of the policy of the Iowa Republicans. Of
course, the Iowa idea did not have the slightest effect
in the congressional canvass of ll.;02, except as it sent
Henderson into retirement. Henderson's district,
however, is represented by a man who cares as little
about the Cummins idea as did Henderson himself
but he has sense enough to hold on to his seat. The
point of prime importance is to avert all schemes of
tariff revision which are intended to go into operation
bofore the presidential election. The question can be
talked about afterward with less danger to the party,
and less, also, to trade. Senator Allison will see to it
that nothing will get into his state platform which will
make him or Iowa ridiculous. The tariff will not be
introduced into the approaching campaign except as
the Democrats may do this by attacking the protective
system. Their attacks, if they are made, will be wel
come. Nothing would please the Republicans of the
nation more than to see the Democrats make a fierce
assault on the tariff line. If Cummins and his awk
ward tquad of tariff smashers can incite the Democ
racy to make an assault on the protetive policy by
which the country has secured a prosperity unknown
anywhere else in the world they will do a rare service
for their party.
Enemies of Good Roads.
Every great and beneficial public movement must
expect a certain amount of annoyance from small-bore
persons who drag in their pet bigotries, regardless of
time and place. Unable to obtain a hearing in any
other way, they turn up in a large convention and
spring their hobby, regardless of ths true objects of
the gathering. Ex-Gov. Hogg, of Texas, in this way,
imposed huTrJeas touching the Philippines upon the
national and international good roads convention.
Jot a dozen personB in the United States care what
Hogg thinks about the acquisition and retention of the
Philippines. That business was attended to by Ameri
can citizens of a different order from Hogg. He was
one of the frothy opponents of the imperialism that
never existed, and that has dropped out of live issues
because it was utterly ridiculous. Good roads might
be obtained to some extent by selling a part of the
national territory, but the idea has occurred to no
body but the Texan with vocal facilities entirely dis
proKrtionate to his w it.
Hogg wants to improve roads by giving up the
Philippines, just ns another Southern speaker, affected
with the same intellectual biiter rot, proposes to stop
river improvement and spend the money on roads.
The convention simply ignored fhese speakers, class
ing them with natural phenomena akin to mosquitoes,
and proceeded w ith its important work on its proper
level. I'nless certain indications fail, a few delegates
attended the convention not to help good roads, but
to stir up a nasty political muss. They are played
out in political conventions and so go to other assem
blages to force their views on a surprised and unwill
ing audience. To the extent of his small ability, llogu
did all that he could to turn the good roads conven
tion into a caucus of a- repudiated party. Rut the
good roads movement will go forward on its merits
w ithout healing such freaks.
A PROMINENT COLLEGE MAN.

Our Comingr Influence in the Pacific.
The President's visit to the Pacific coast states and
his speeches at San Jose, Watsonville, Santa Cm,
San Praneisco and oilier poin's serve to call attention
not only to the remarkable industrial progress of this
section of the Union within the lat few years, but to
the growth of our interests in the Pacific.
In his speech at Watsonville the President, refer
ring to the Pacific, said:
H'his, the greatest of all the oceans, is one which
during the century opening must pass under Amer
ican influence ami, as inevitably happens when a
great effort comes, it means that a great burden of re
sponsibility accompanies the effort. "
It was doubtless far from the purpose of the Presi
dent to convey the notion that he believed the United
States would "rule" the Pacific, as some papers seem
to have interpreted his utterance. If the Philippine
archipelago remains under our control or protection)
however, it is a safe prediction that American influence
will seiipibly increase in the Pacific. Toward this end
also our other Pacific possessions will contribute, the
Island of Guam lying in a direct line from San Fran
cisco to the southern part of the Philippine, with the
Island of Tutuila, w hich has the most valuable island
harbor in the South Pacific, and the Hawaiian group.
which has considerable commercial nnd strategical
With these important naval stations and the gate,

1 oumlary question settled, and the Panama Canal
coiuplt-ted and owned by the government the Pacific
coast states are certain to witness a development far
beyond the dreams even of such enthusiastic optim
ists as President Roosevelt.

Tiik prospects fur the annual meeting of the Wil
lamette Valley Chautauqua Association, in July stir,
pass those of the successful assemblies in the past, re
ports Mr. II. K. Cru.-s, t-eciitary of the Association.
Of great educational value to the entire state, and par
ticularly to this community, is the Chautauqua Asso
ciation. Lecturers of ability and national reputation
are engaged for each meeting. Even a larger number
of celebrities have been secured for this year than for
previous assemblies. Senator Dolliver. and Congress
man Champ Clark, who are recognized as the fore
most jiolitical orators of the country, will both give
lectures during the sessions of the Chautauqua. Mr.
and Mrs. Robert J. liurdette, talented people and en
tamers of great accomplishments of Pasadena, Cali
fornia, will also be in attendance. Other entertain
ers, of equal ability in their respective assignments,
have been engaged. Everything augurs well for the
suceess of the Assembly. Such a result will be due
largely to the untiring efforts of Mr. Cross, as secre
tary. Pi.kixjko to a reduction in the expense of conduct
ing the affairs of the county, the present Republican
officers of Clackamas county are fulfilling their ante
election promises. The semi-annual reports of the
various olli cers are printed in this issue of the Enter
p'ise, and disclose an improved condition, financially
in the affairs of the county. I5y judicious manage
ment of the affairs of the county, the current expenses
for the half-year were restricted to $'.'-l,H4l, as against
44,C-S0.5"4 for th corresponding six months a year
ago. This represents a saving to the county in cur
rent expenses of nearly $10,000 in six months. Judge
Ryan and the other county officers are deserving of
credit for this showing, which will be welcome news
to the taxpayers of the county.
A viooKors and thorough canvass is being made
by the Republicans throughout this Congressional
District, and the election of Mr. Herman by a major
ity considerably in excess of all expectations will be
the result. 'Congressional Committeeman Ryan and
the Republican leaders of Clackamas county are con
ducting an aggressive campaign that will contribute
to that end very materially.
Mr. Reameb may be able to successfully imperson
ate the handshake and conversation of his opponent,
Mr. Hermann, but when the votes are counted on the
night of June 1, the former will be convinced that he
had better employed in the getting of votes the time
that was passed in entertaining impersonations.
