A LARGER FOREST RESERVE.
Petitions are being put in circulation at various
points in Western and Southern Oregon asking the
President to revoke certain orders creating forest res
ervations and that no others be made. Our citizens
will do well to pass these petitions by without signing
them. Aside from good grounds of public policy
which dictated the forest reservation system, it has
plainly been necessary to interpose this power of the
President to withdraw lands from entry in order to
gave any of the public domain, or that part of it car
rying timber and mineral from being wholly appro
priated by a limited class through fraud and false
swearing. There are many tracts already so appro
priated that are capable of agriculture and would
sustain a family, if homesteaded in a legitimate way.
The miners and prospectors, who are permitted to op
erate within the forest reserves, have suffered outrage
ous injustice in many instances through the fraudu
lent manipulation and alienation of timber claims.
The interests of the mass of the people will be sub
served by withholding as much of the public domain
rivoto ontrv aa nrarticable. except where the

An Albany judge, Clifford P. Gregory, has rejected
a large number of applications for naturalization pa
ners on erounds indicated by himself as follows:
"I will not naturalize any person who comes be

sufficiently to make himself understood. I will com
pel them to answer questions regarding their age.
nlace of nativitv. when they arrived in the United
States, and other questions which I deem essential to
good citizenship, and if they fail to make satislactory
answers I will refuse to grant them the necessary pa
pers. When a man has been in this country five
vears and is unable to talk our language, in my opin
ion he is not fit to be admitted to citizenship, and I
will act accordingly.'
An unique contest, recently conducted by tho Raker
City Herald, has been decided, A cash pri.o was of
feror! for tho best definition of a kiss. Mrs. M. W.
IVnham, of Walla Walla, Washington, received the
prize. Her definition was: "A kiss is a demonstra
tion bv which our most sacred feelings, also feelings of
a less heaven'y nature, are expressed " Moro than
five thousand definitions were submitted.

CANDIDATES FOR THE VICE-PRESIDENCY.
That the contest for the vice-presidential nomina
tion in the next nftional Republican convention is
likely to develop considerable public interest is again
affirmed by the action of the :ebraeka state conven
Nebraska has brought forward a favorite son for the
vice-presidency in the person of John L. Webster, of
Omaha. For the infoimation of those who have never
heard of Webster it t-hould be said that iie is a pros
perous lawyer, has been in the Nebraska state legisla
ture, was president of the constitutional convention,
and has been more or less identified with local politi- al
campaigns. Mr. Webster has been "mentioned tor
many offices, including that of United States senator,
and hence the mention of his name for the vice-presidency
will not be a new experience for him.
The bringing out of Webster by the Nebraska con
vention merely strengthens the belief that there will
be at least forty-five candidates for the vice-presidency
by the time the national Republican convention meets.
Every state will have a "favorite son" to present.
Some of them, as a result of factional fights, will
doubtless have two or three "favorite sons."
And this does not mean that other ambitious states
men will not be "mentioned" for vice-presidential
honors. Before each state agrees upon a favorite son
an opportunity to get in the "favorable mention" class
will be offered to mayor of cities, chairman of county
central committees, state legislators and constables.
Men who have served the party faithfully and have
carried water to the party elephant in sunshine and
in shower are entitled to this honorable distinction.
No favoritism should be shown. The vice-presidency
is something every man may aspire to.
The indications are that the next Republican na
tional convention will not be such dull and unin
teresting event after all.
Veky general is the hope that the unseasonable
weather of the last week will terminate and more
favorable conditions'prevail to the end that hops and
other crops may not suffer extensive damage. Rain
for two weeks more would work a great hardship on
-both producers and laborers.
As an instance of the good wages that prevail for
labor of all kinds in the Willamette valley this fall,
may bo cited the charge that is being made and col
lected for tho storing away of cord wood, i ifty cents
a cord is being paid for this work. An average work
man can store away a cord an hour winch for a day
of ten hours means per day. Complaint is made
that laborers of all kind were never as seareo as they
are this vear. An Oregon City business man has been
advertising for several weeks for men to haul -100
cords of wood and has been unable to find tho neces
sary help. v
The experiment of Joseph Pulitzer, the New York
editor- millionaire, in establishing a school of journal
ism for the production of newspajK-r writers, will Ihj
watched with interest. Success in tho newspaper field,
as well as anv other field of labor, dejH-n.ls largely on
the amount of native talent and adaptability to the work
that is possessed by the ambitious writer. Unlimited
training in a school of journalism will not make a
successful newspaper man, where there is not in the
r.ntiirftl fondness for the work. However.
Mr. Pulitzer may be able to improve tho quality of
the work of many reporters who aro laboring under
the mistaken idea that they are newspaper men. If
he does this he will have rendered the general public
an appreciable service.
Ok all liars, that Jotephine county man should have
the medal. He claims that s hr tree on tm timber
claim has a petrified top, while the lower part of the
tree is alive and green. Eugene tiuard. I hat a noth
ing. An instance was this week reported in Clacka
amas county of a tree that burned for eleven consec
utive months before it fell to the ground. Oregon
City Enterprise. Pshaw, you fellows know nothing
about timber. Come over to Central Oregon and we will
show you thousands of acres of sage brush that our
dear Hitchcock has placed in a reserve that in a half
dozen years will grow into trees that will produce dia
monds on every twig. Our sage 1 rush is wonderfully
productive, and under the stimulating effects or Hitch
cock will become marvelous. Prineville Review. .
' Sai.km, Eugene and other uj-valey towns are in
volved in a controversy as to the purity of the domes
tic water supp y. To the alleged impurity of the
water supply is attributed by some the main cause
for the prevalence in those cities of many cases of ty
phoid fever. Herein Oregon City it is different.
Typhoid fever and other epidemics, directly or indi
rectly contributed to by impure water, are practically
an unknown quantity. Oregon City owns its own
wafer plant and its capable board of water commis
sioners has at heart the best possible service for all
consumers rather than the sacrifice of that service to
the end that a substantial dividend may be regularly
apportioned to the interested stockholders as is some
times the case when this publio utility is owned and
controlled by individuals.
Another instance of the harmful effects of the five
cent yellow-backed sensational novels is reported
from Lane county, where a young man of twenty
years has been committed to the state insane asylum.
As a consequence of the extensive reading of this sort
of publications, the lad imagines he is a detectivo.
The publication and circulation of these worthless
pamphlets sfTould be prohibited by strict legislative
acts. These cheap novels do more towards producing
young criminals and good-for-nothing citizens in a
community than do a combination of other pernicious
habits. Educate the boy to read substantial maga
zines and periodicals with which every book store is
bountifully supplied and the problem of providing
accommodations for the incorrigible of the state will
be of easy solution. .
Ionoha.ste of Oregon to a surprising degree is dis
closed in a letter received Monday by Register Dresser,
of the Oregon City Land Office, from a prospective
settler now residing in Missouri. After asking that
he be furnished a plat of all government lands in 'the
state and making other inquiry as to land values in
this state, the author of the communication inquires
if the entire state is irrigated. This query is supple
mented by an equally ridiculous one in that the Mis
sourian wishes to know if there are,, any homesteads
located near Portland that are still open to settlement.
Register Dresser thinks the contents of the letter are
sufficient evidence of the need for some missionary
work in the East by which the population may be in
formed as to Oregon as it is. A six months' residence
in Oregon during the winter months would suffice to
show the inquisitive Missourian that irrigation is
not essential to the growing of crops in this state.
