Taking the Census
Census taking, lays the Oregon
Journal, begins in three weeks. In
almost every city and community
in Oregon a howl has usually fol
lowed announct-oient of the count.
In several instances there hai been
a recount by local authority with
considerable additions to the ag
cremate. In all instances the offi
cial count has been disappointing
The farcical character of the pro.
ceed'ire has been a chief influence
in contributing to the result. This
was due to the incompetency of
census officials and the selection of
official enumerators for political
reasons rather than for census tak
ing. Tlie procesa has been so ha
bitual that the public looks with
lack of confidence on the present
numeration and thereby lays be
fore the census superintendents
unusual opportunity to make a
count of demonstrated value. They
will be censured if they fail to do
so. Continuing the Journal says :
Beginning April 13 and continu
ing until the count end9 there
should be a new order. Census
taking ii a serious business. For
a hundred reasons every resident
of the state should be found and
catalogued. Matters of very large
importance bang on the result.

every city, town and community

Plans provide for a combined mill,
wharf and elevator. The contract
for the wharf structure has already
been let. The mill will be reach

roads as well. It will be operated
by electric motors and will be one
of the most modern flour milling
plants in the country. Its daily
capacity will be about 1000 barrels
of flour. i

For ten years Roosevelt haa en
joyed a wealth of publicity that
has nerer been equalled, and it is
to be hoped it never will be. We
say enjoyed because we believe Mr.
Roosevelt is "de-lighted" by being
kept in the public eye as never
was mortal man before. We hoped
when he arrired in the innermost
recesses of darkest Africa there
would be some let up to the efful
gent limelight, but not so. By
wireless, grapevine, jungle-grass
cable, pony express, foot runners
and whatnot the doings of this
most pictured and be-written citi
zen oi Lncie nam's domain ap
peared daily, weekly, monthly and
periodically. Nw, on the eve of
his return to his natire soil it
looks as if all that had been said
and portrayed before would be as
a hand bill for a moving picture
show to the advent of Barnum's
tircus, compared with what is to
come. The blare of Caesar's tri
umph, the ovation to the hero of
Trafalgar or the welcome extended
to the destroyer of Cevera's fleet
will be as naught to the home
coming of T. Roosevelt.
And why? Because there seems
to be a fixed idea in the minds of
n big proportion of the great
American public that there is only
one man who can run these United
States. If this is so we are surely
in a bad way. However, if it is
so let us elect Roosevelt for a life
term and hare done with such an
avalanche of printer's ink on a
subject that has ceased to be inter
esting except to the idolators of
the strenuous advocate of the big
stick. Instead of too much John
son it is a case of too much Roosevelt.

Beginning this week, gasoline mo
tor cars will be put in service on
the main line of the Southern Pa
cific between Ashland and Grants
Pass and another on the Spring
field branch between Albany and
Springfield. Another car of the
same type will be put on between
Pendleton and Umatilla on the O.
R. & N. within the coming week.
These motor cars are deeigned to
handle local business in the terri
tory they cover and serve the dif
ferent communities much in the
same way as interurban electric
trains. They have been found
very convenient wherever tried
and will no doubt aid the develop
