BECAUSE TOO OLD. . -
Because he is nearly 81, they say
Henry G. Davis is too old to run
for the vice-presidency of the Unit
ed States. When age is resorted to
by critics as a blemish, it is almost
a sure sign that the man criticized
is without real faults to point out.
The time was, when venerable
years stood for sound judgment and
unusual wisdom, and the young
were taught to respect and honor
them. Those were , days when
fathers knew . more than smart
young sons, and when the mothers
and not the daughters ran the
household.But this is a 20th cen
tury, and the world is swifter now
than it used to be. Things like the
Constitution, the Declaration of In
dependence and a parent, our smart
young bustlers now declare out
worn and too ancient for our world
And so, Henry G. Davis, in spite
of the fact that even with his four
score years he was the least wearied
of all the men in the St. Louis con
vention, who walks vigorously and
erect over his farm and directs ev-ery-operation.
who does all things
that any other man of "50 or 60
does, he is called too . old to be
vice-president of the United States.
Thus, in the change and sweep of
the times, age, that was once a vir
tue, in the merciless minds of some,
has become a crime. No . matter
how vigorous or how . strong yet, a
certain figure in a man's years is
the deadline, and after that, he is to
be buried alive. Our fathers and
mothers must be thrust aside, be
cause they are in the way of we
smart young folks. How long will it
be at our present increase of pace un
til we will dig graves for ihein
while they yet live, fashion tomb
stones while they still look, and
write on the stone,
' '.'Our Father and Mother, -'
Buried alive here because
How refreshing it would be for
all if some of the old fashioned no
tions about age and the merit of age
would come in vogae again. How
refreshing, since every man knows
his time to be called old, and to be
thrust aside perhaps before he is
ready, is swift and surely coming.
FOR A GREATER OREEQN.
It is notorious that Oregon, in
late year?, has been outstripped in
growth by her neighbor states on
the north. Seattle, Spokane and
Tacoma are well known to people
in the East who never heard of
Portland. Organization is the life
breath of progress, and success comes
to those who help themselves. Ore
gonians slept and dozed while Wash
ingtonians were active in pushing
the claims ot their state for settle
ment and development. If the pop
ulation and wealth of the one was
slower than that of the other in de
velopment tbe reason is manifest.
If Oregon would go to the lore the
way is easy and the task simple.
The Portland Commercial club pro
poses the organization of the Ore
gon Development League, a society
to bind all Oregon together for a
bigger, better state. The plan in
dicates an awakened Portland, and
the possibility of an awakened Ore
gon. The time is opportune be
cause of the unparalleled opportuni
ty afforded by the coming Lewis
and Clark fair. It is the time of
all times to reach for success, for it
will be the time when it is easiest to
grasp it. Corvallis, and every town
in Oregon should, and doubtless
will send a full delegation to the
Marquam - meeting, there to join
hands for a greater Oregon, a state
for which nature has done so much,
and her people, so comparatively
little. - "

THE FLAG CONTEST.
Voting for the Handsome Silk Flag

stores where one may secure : these
blank ballots, and nearly every
lodge and society in town has . its
name on the list where the result of
the voting is made known every
week. The contest closes August
31, and the institution or organiza
tion that has the largest number of
votes to its credit," when the . last
count is made, is the one that will
be awarded one of the handsomest
