The Portland Highways
It now seems that a highway
from Portland to Hood Iiiver is
only a matter of time, and that
the time will not be very far dis
tant. Two routes to the valley
are now under way, both of
which are being pushed with en
thusiasm, although it must be
said that neither have received
much assistance from the citi
zons of Hood River county.
One of them is a trail that is
Uing cut through the forest from
the Sandy river into the Upper
Valley country, under the direc
tion of the government, and the
other a modern highway now un
der course of construction by
Multnomah county along the Co
lumbia river. The latter is now
within three miles of Bridal Veil,
its destination until Hood River
county signifies its intention of
building a highway from here
to the Multnomah county line.
Plans and organization to help
in completing a connection to
these highways have been widely
discussed here, and all progress
ive residents are, unquestionably,
willing to lend their assistance.
However, the ultimate success of
the work demands a much more
vigorous and concerted move
ment than has yet been made,
and the efforts of those who have
done so much to make a success
ful beginning toward these much
desired highways, deserve much
stronger recognition than they
have as yet received.
The time is now ripe for a
Portland-Hood River Highway
Association, or some such organ
ization, formed for the purpose
of pushing one or both of these
roads to completion. Other
things may be done of signal
benefit to this section of the
country, but there is nothing
that will be more far-reaching in
its scope. The construction of
this road is not only of the ut
most importance to Hood River,
but to every eastern Oregon
town and county in the state.
Its completion means an open
gateway to a rich territory that
will see a hundred visitors where
it now sees one, if made accessi
ble to overland vehicles. The
efforts being made to reach us
from Oregon's progressive me
tropolis should receive the
strongest encouragement, partic
ularly as we are the ones to be
Recalling the Judiciary
It begins to appear as if Se
attle is going to have another
recall election. This time it is
Mayor George W. Dilling, who
wa3 seated when H. C. Gill was
recalled, who must face the on
slaught Four members of the
city council will also be given an
opportunity to test their popu
larity. All of these officials took
office only last spring. Although
it is doubtful if the forthcoming
recall will be successful, it is
stirring up considerable of a
fuss. The principal charge
against Dilling is that he insists
on following his own judgment,
not being amenable to sugges
tions from outsiders.
The recall farce going on in
Seattle brings us to the unwis
dom of extending it to the judi
ciary. Once in force, it would
undoubtedly prove a dangerous
menace not only to an impartial
dispensation of justice, but also
in providing the pernicious and
vicious with a powerful weapon.
This the stability and dignity of
the most august branch of the
government, should not be
mibjected to. Laws now in
force provide for the removal of
dishonest or incomietent judges,
the oK-ration of which is as far
removed from sentiment as jios
nible. To constantly subject
members of the judiciary to re
moval for what might frequently
be just, but unpopular, decisions
would endanger the very founda
tion of government and society.
The unseating of public officials
at the whim of an excited public
approaches very near to mob law
As the power of the initia
tive and referendum becomes
extended, it seems that the
history of government may re
peat itself in the United States
as in other nations, where the
succession of rule has beer, mon
archy, republic, anarchy, and so
on around the cycle.
The tariff tinkering now tak-
ing place in c ongress is noi ac
complishing any particular good.
As a matter of fact, it is causing
business interests to hang in the
balance and delaying industrial
activity. ro one w ho has studied
the question has any doubts as
to the advisability of tariff revis
ion, but the main point is to have
the revision equable and intelli
gent. So far, action on the tariff in
both houses of Congress savors
of an attempt to embarrass the
administration and make political
capital. It is to be hoped that
the courage to tackle tariff prob-
ems which has so far charac
terized President Taft, will not
be lacking when these bills are
presented for his signature, and
that he will veto them. What
the country needs in tariff revis
ion is a competent and non-partisan
commission whose findings
will be along the lines of intelli
gent political economy be fair to
both producer, manufacturer and

"Hert Stanahan. a wealthy and
prosperous business man, with his
wife nnd L. S. Baldwin, contractor
and builder, and family, of Hood
River, arrived In Roseburir this
morning enroute home after au ex
tended trip through California. The
party have met with some funny ex
periences since leaving home. While
at Myrtle Creek thin morning they
discovered that they did not have
money enough with which to buy
their breakfast, and no one to trust
them for same, so concluded they
would come to Roneburg where they
found the same conditions, only that
they were out of gasoline and would
need money for that too.
"Wandering aimlessly around the
city, looking for some (Jood Samari
tan, forlorn and hungry, they acci
dentally rau across Win. Iavldson,
who Is In Roseburg In the Interests
of the Hood River Mineral Springs
Company. Telling their troubles to
Mr. Davidson they were taken to
the bank and Identitied, receiving the
necessary money. They Immediate
ly proceded to a restaurant, laid lu a
good supply of food, and started on
their way rejolclug. Roseburg citi
zens nre very sorry they did not
make their wants kuown sooner as
