JUDGES AND POLITICAL AMBITION
Precedents Cited la Sopport of Pro
posed Candidacy ef Justice Hughes.
PENDLETON, Or.. Nor. 27. (To the
Editor.) The writer urged the nomi
nation of Governor Hughes for the
Presidency both in 190S and 1912. and
Is of the opinion that had that gentle
man been nominated In either of those
years he would have been elected, the
schism in the Republican party would
have been avoided and the country
would have escaped the period of de
pression through which it Is passing.
Still believing that Hughes is the man
of the hour, and that patriotic duty
requires that he respond to public de
mand for his service in the executive
chair, permit me to answer briefly the
curious but persistent argument that
his position upon the Supreme bench
of the United States precludes his can
didacy. Those who urge that fact sgalnst
the man speak without knowledge of
the history of the tribunal of which
he Is a member. John Jav while Chief
Justice of the TJnlted States was a
candidate for Governor of New Tork
twice. He was defeated at the first
election, at the second he was elected
and resigned to accept the office. Oliver
Ellsworth retired from the position of
Chief Justice to accept a place upon
the State Council of Connecticut. John
Rutledge resigned from the same posi
tion to Become Chief Justice of the
State of South Carolina.
So much for the exalted station
lauded as second In honor to the Presi
Among the associate Justices. Levi
Woodbury, at the time of his death,
had been substantially agreed upon by
the leaders of his party for the Presi
dential nomination. John A. Campbell
resigned to follow the fortunes of the
confederacy. David Davis reslg-ned to
accept election as United States Senator
from the State of Illinois. John Mc
Lean was a candidate for President in
the Free Soil convention, and was the
cading- competitor of Freemont In the
first Republican convention. Salmon P.
Chase's attitude Is too well known for
comment. Numerous associate Justices
have resigned for other than political
reasons, among them being Benjamin
R. Curtiss, who ranked with Marshall
and Story, and Is counted among the
few men of commanding- legal Intellect
In the history of that court.
It Is folly to attempt to maintain
that there is any halo about the head
of members of the Supreme Court, or
that there Is any sound reason wh
tholr position exempts them from the
public service. Permit me to suggest
that Oregon send a Hughes delegatlo
to the next Republican National Con
vention, and place herself In a position
to lead the Hughes movement to
STEPHEN A. LOWELL.

Cn.tXCB IS SHORT OF SOCIALISM
Bat Slate Control by Belligerents May
Create Problems for Is.
PORTLAND, Nov. 28. (To the Edi
tor.) If reports are correct, the prin
clpal belligerent governments of
Europe are enforcing a system of state
control In economic matters. Also, If
odvlces are correct, such control and
regulation, maintained solely by the
strong srm of the military power, has
attained more drastic and far-reaching
proportions than anything like It pre
What Is the object of this vast ex
ercise of power by each of those na
tions? First, to preserve the full mili
tary strength of the nation at its
height of efficiency and speed; second.
and subordinate thereto, is to supply
the civilian population with a mini
mum of the necessities of life.
It will be observed that this system
requires a full supply of rations to
each man In army or navy at all times.
Also, that the second class, or civilians,
must divide what Is left, with due re
gard to conservation of BUpply. primar-
ly to the military and secondarily to

furnishing employment for all able-
bodied persons, etc. There, however. It
stops, for your Socialist will have none
of the military non-producer.
The central Idea is that the great
power of a government to regulate the
individual, and the daily affairs of his
life, stands out In bolder relief than
any other examples to which the So
cialist may point in the worlds his
tory. Question of profound importance are
thus thrust upon the world, and ques
tions which America must in time
solve. When peace comes, will not the
people of each European country de
mand that all governmental regulation
which they deem beneficial and which
obtained during the war shall be con
tinued In time of pence? Will not the
people of America, viewing these ex
amples, demand like things. Will they
not demand income taxes and regula
tion which will. In their purview, bring
about what they deem an equitable dis
tribution of the product of labor? Is

Convict's Invention Hoax.
PORTLAND. Nov. 28. (To the Edi
tor.) Please state what has become
of the Arizona convict, Myers, who was
released some years ago that he might
go to Washington and secure a patent
on a dovice for drawing electricity
from the air. I recall that he returned
to the penitentiary in accordance with
his promise, but I have seen no more
about him or his invention.
Myers confessed that his scheme for
drawing electricity from the air was a
hoax. It was worked by a concealed
motor or batteries. The furlough or
parole granted Myers by Governor Hunt,
of Arizona, to go to Washington to
secure a patent on his dovlce was pro
cured at the Instance of Miss Kc.te
Bernard, of Oklahoma, who went to
Arizona at the time of the inaugura
tion of Governor Hunt to give him
primary lessons In humanltarianlsm In
dealing with criminals.
Myers returned directly from Wash
ington to Arizona In compliance with
the term of his parole, but was not
again incarcerated. He then went East
and was next heard of in Louisiana,
where he had been arrested for fraud.
During the last 10 or 12 days the

places. Between Monticello and van-

Vancouver and Portland 15 and farther
scuth very many places occurring at

now the line is down again.
Mount Hood First Ascended In 1'7.
MEDFORD. Or., Nov. 27. -(To the
Editor.) Richard J. Grace's excellent
article in The Sunday Oregonian, No
vember 21. is worthy of Credit, except
that in his reference to the first ascent
of Mount Hood he Is completely at sea
in saying, "The first human being to
reach the summit of Mount Hood set
foot on the peak August 4, 1854."
The party referred to was orgnnl-ed
by T. J. Dryer, then owner and pub
lisher of Tho Oregonian. who published
a detailed account of the trip a few
days later. Regardless of his positive
statement that they reached the sum
mit, it is not true. The ascent Ib care
fully described. In that they crossed
the White River Canyon and ascended
bv the long, dark ridge beyond, which.
anyone at all familiar with the moun
tain, knows floes not lead to me sum
mit, but to the top of Steel's ciirr.
from which point it Is impossible to
reach the summit without wings.
The fact is that the first party to
attain the peak was composed of
Henry L. Plttock, W. Lyman Chitten
den, James G. P.eardorff, William
Buckley and Professor L. J. Powell, of
Portland, who succeeded July 11, 1S57.

Error In Word.
SEAVIEW. Wash., Nov. 27. (To the
Editor.) In a letter over my signature
published November 26, entitled "Soul
Will Return In Normal Body." an error
appears. I am made to speak of "re

reincarnating ego." Kindly make the
correction. Under ordinary circum

theosophlcally the error Is glaring.
