FRIDAY EVENING OCT. 12, 1906.
Some of the newspapers profess
to be amused by Col. Hofer. They
fancy they see a joke in his candi
dacy for the collectorship. Their
attitude is not easily understand
able. Col. Hofer has a right to be
a collector of customs. The fact
that he labors in season and out,
for Oregon, ought not, to rend
er him ineligible for . an appoint
ment. He is not disfranchised be
cause he has conducted a republic
an newspaper for 30 years. The
fact that he has fought the party's
battles in many a bitter campaign
and always with his face to the foe,
ought not to render him ineligible
It is true that once or twice he
has swerved in his devotion, but so
has Theodore Roosevelt, the king
pin republican of them all. No
soldier in the republican camp has
delivered harder blows or been
more regularly on the fighting line
than has Editor Hofer. If any
man in the party in Oregon is en
titled to consider? tion, he is. If
any ought to be his friends in the
premises, the newspaper men should
If the newspaper men do not sup
port their own fraternity, who will?
If wisdom prevailed, they would
aid each other in such ambitions
rather than hack. If one among
them, is mentioned for United
States senator, as is sometimes the
case, all the others should not scout
the thought as an impossibility.
The country's rise or fall i3 very
largely in the keeping of its journ
alists, . and their profession,
ought not be deemed a bar to
Col. Hofer is a legitimate as well
as a veteran in his calling, and his
ambition is laudable. It is howev
er almost universally observable
that newspapers win great cam
paigns and pee-wee politicians are
named to gather the fruits.
FOR PUPIL'S SAKE.
Time is demonstrating that a
later opening each year of the pub
lic schools would be for the better.
A date very near the first of Oct
ober is not too late. The children
of poorer parents are rarely ready
to enter earlier. They are in the
hop fields, the prune orchards or at
other duties. They need the money
to be obtained there. The schools
should wait until the main body
of such pupils are able to enter, for
Otherwise, a large number must be
gin work in their classes under the
handicap of being two or three weeks
bahind time. They should have
a fair chance for an even start with
pupils that do not labor.
Of equal importance is the fact
that a later opening will make in
the larger pupils, more help in the
hop yards and orchards and heavy
losses like that sustained this year
will be greatly lessened.

Strange things are observable at
the top of the court house tower.
Doings in which the the Goddess
of Justice has taken part are the
talk of the town. It isn't exactly
scandal for the Goddess is usually
pretty particular about the proprie
ties. It is her style of dress that
is attracting attention and comment.
Those who looked at her this
morning noted that she had on a
new suit of clothing. The men
supposed it was a new winter suit
and sighed to think of how Judge
Woodward was suffering by reason
ot the sum that the new
All men shiver when the winter
clothing has to be bought for the
female portion of tqe household.
The men observers, too, noticed
that the Goddess' new suit didn't
particularly fit, but remembered
that it has to be thai way to be
the fashion. A man's coat in the
height of style now makes the wear
er look a small boy in a man suit
or like a pony in a big horse's har
ness. The pants are so big through
the legs that a man who bought a
pair at Klines the other day was
accused when he went out on the
street of haviug on Hurt's trousers.
The man has since been afraid to
meet Mr. Hurt for fear the latter
would claim them. When he sees
Hurt on the street now, the man
always stands with his legs crossed
so as much as possible of the extra
sail in his pants will be reefed and
out of Hurt's sight.
The Goddess' new suit is a hor
rid fit. The cut ot the skirt is bias
with a side step in the main deck,
an upper cut in the waist, and a
slash down the bodice. At a dis
tance the effect of it is to give an
appearance of nun's veiling over
pink chiffon. . It is to be hoped
