Dropping Party Lines
Tarty lines will probably bo
less in evidence in the voting thi
Fall than they have been for
many years. This fact is evident
from the talk which is being
heard every day on the street.
There is being manifested a gen
eral intention in the present cam
paign to consider principals rath
er than political creeds. Party
platforms have been announced,
but they have not elicited the
same interest as in former cam
paigns. There is that in the bal
ance with which the people are
more deeply concerned than in
the recital of timeworn party
platforms. There are unmistak
able demands on the part of the
people for progressive principals
in the conduct of the national
government and it is agreed that
the successful candidate this Fall
will not be the one who holds
closest to the principals of the
party which he may represent,
but the one, rather, who the
people believe will best represent
them in their demand for such
progressive policies, by which is
meant substantial reduction in
the .tariff on the necessities of
life and more effective curbing
of the moneyed interests.
At the time of this writing the
Democratic nominee at Baltimore
has not yet been chosen. But
whoever he may be it is certain
that his supporters will claim for
him that he stands for the pro
gressive in politics. Indeed this
will be the assertion of each of
the candidates. It will be for the
people to decide for themselves
which of them does in fact sin
cerely represent them in this re
gard. Taft's supporters point
to his record in trust prosecution
and to his creation of the tariff
board as proof that he is work
ing for what the people want and
assert that he is the safe and
sane progressive working with
the powerful forces of the Grand
Old Party. Roosevelt, too, has
undertaken to steal the progres
sives thunder, and if he runs,
will proclaim himself the only
and original dyed-in-the-wool pro
One of the most apparent facts
at the present writing is that the
people themselves, at least in this
community, hold a great divers
ity of opinions and public senti
ment has far from crystalized.
If Bryan is the Democratic
nominee he will doubtless swing
a heavy progressive vote from
both parties. If it is Wilson his
strength will not be so great.
Only one thing can be predicted
at this time and that is that the
successful candidate this Fall,
whether Taft, Roosevelt; or a
Democrat, will be the one who
can convince the people that he
will conscientously carry into ef
fect the new policies which they
are now almost unanimous in de
manding, regardless of party
Tomorrow's celebration, al
though a sane one, is not going
to be a bit the less enjoyable for
that reason. Fireworks have
been eliminated from the streets
by order of Mayor Blanchar in
accordance with the ordinance to
that effect, but their place will be
taken by events which will not
only be safer but also more in ac
cordance with the original mean
ing of the day. Many children
who have never or rarely ridden
in an automobile will be given an
opportunity to get into the parade
in the morning and the old folks
can't help but enjoy seeing all
the youngsters having such a
The patriotic significance of
the day will be recalled, as it
should be, at the 11 o'clock exer
cises and the remainder of the
day will be replete with amusing
and entertaining events. If the
Weather Clerk dews his part, it
will be the kind of a celebration
which will be a credit to Hood
River and strictly in accord with
the National Holiday.
"Just An Ordinary Woman'
She was just an ordinary worn
an. without much leisure or t?Tie
for culture, says an exchange.
She did not know the ditference
between an Ionic and a Doric
column in architecture; and she
was not "up" on china painting
or the Roman emperors, but she
brought up three children to tell
the truth, and to lcjve God, to
love their brothers, and to do
honest labor with their hands
and not to be ashamed of it.
When she died the paper did not
notice it, but the Recording An
gel said, as he reached for a
fresh pen and turned over to a
clean page, "a queen is coming;
get her throne ready."
A life prisoner at Stillwater.
Minn., refuses to accept freedom.
The poor fellow has been read
ing about the Taft-Roosevelt
struggle, the high cost of living,
the Mississippi floods and the
suffragist parade until he feels
safer where he is.
We see by the papers that two
Los Angeles girls rescued two
young men from the angry deep.
This being leap year, there can
be no doubt about the sequel.

FUMES OF STRAWBERRIES
INTOXICATE, SAY SAILORS
According to the Eimdon .Standard,
a strange story about the danger of
gtrawlierrles when in large quanti
ties comes from Brittany. Itecently
there have been several demands by
local tradespeople and tourists to
be granted a passage to Plymouth
on the little steamers which carry
the supply of early strawberries
across the channel from I'lougastel,
but In every cose the request has lieen
refused. As the refusal was III re
ceived In some cases, the shipowners
have now given their explanation.
The fumes given out by such large
quantities of strawberries, they say,
are quite as overpowering am) dun
gerous as those, of any strong alcho
hollc liquor. The crew have to keep
on deck for the greater part of the
voyage and no passenger could Ih

ESTIMATES ON NEW
YORK CROP REDUCED
That early estimates on the fruit
crop In western New York were
too optimistic Is now the opinion of
Iteports are less glowing, stating
that more or less damage has been
done by cold rains, which came
when the blossoms were setting,
blasting many of them. As a result,
dealers said the yleh' .? apples and
pears would undoubtedly be smaller
thM) last year.
Owners of pear orchards at Man
chester reported that they would
have very few pears to harvest.
chiefly owing to the ravages of an
Insect known as the bud moth. This
pest, U was said, appeared early In
the spring and spread rapidly, espe
cially In orchards which were not
sprayed early and properly. Where
the spraying was effective, orchards
have a fair showing of pears.
Just how much the total apple and
par crop of western New York has
been shortened Is not known. Both
growers and dealers say It is too
early to make a definite or accurate
estimate. Hut they agree that both
Oreenlngs and Baldwins will lie
lighter than last year. Some of the
other varieties are said to be show
