Plana to establish a regular line of fast passenger steamships between Portland and the Orient, in pursu ance of -which the Columbia Pacific company has applied to the shipping board for two vessels, indicate an- other great step in establishing the position of Portland as a port. Fas- eenger lines are a necessary comple ment to freight lines and are a proof that a port's freight traffic has grown to important volume. For freight traffic develops passenger traffic by sea as it does on railroads. It causes men to travel between the porta at which their business is done in order to establish connections, ,. branches and agencies. It will at ' tract tourists and students from China and Japan to this port by arousing their interest in the places - to and from which they see goods shipped. ' By providing means of direct personal intercourse, it leads to extension of business, to opening of mercantile houses and to estab ' lishment of Industries. - Portland has laid the foundation for , passenger line in the shape f large freight traffic with the Orient It now has two lines operating five vessels each to that region, and a third to Japan by a Japanese com pany will soon begin operation. There will be at least ten and prob ably fourteen cargo vessels plying eastward across the paciiic in ad dition, eleven vessels are' under charter to a Portland company, a large proportion of which ma4fe voyages to China. There are also fourteen vessels running to Europe and the Atlantic coast of the United States on a triangular route, two running to the United Kingdom and two to the Mediterranean. Thirteen vessels run to California ports with both freight and passengers, and it is proposed to add" two more passen per ships. In all, forty-two vessels are running to foreign ports in the service of Portland commerce. All carry full cargoes, and the volume of traffic originating in Portland is bo great that two 12.000-ton ships of the Steel Products company which were sent to collect freight for Europe from all Pacific ports found full cargoes at this port, ex 5; cept that a small part of one cargo was taken from Vancouver, is. C Any doubt that this traffic will be permanent is removed by the fact that 60 per cent of it originates in Portland and the immediately adja cent territory. The port is not de pendent on the good will of railroads or of shippers in the interior for the main support of its shipping lines. - On the contrary, it provides within . Its own trade area-E-jch a Kirge pro portion of cargoes as attracts trans it. ;continental traffic for export 'and Crr" Import by giving assurance. ofregu lar sailings. It is also the only real pacific coast terminus of the Union Pacific railroad, and that road will r.Z ."De inclined to carry its export "-fralo-hf tn PftrtlnnH fnr th rpflRnn ; that it will thereby receive all the4 --- - revenue; whereas It would have to r-w,rjivide with other lines if it carried rTl the traffic to other ports. For the tT'same reason the Union Pacific - should encourage passengers from i-tS'," ho interior to the Orient to travel .. by a Portland steamship line, which :.-.,. .'.- ia in effect an extension of its own .i' line across the Pacific ocean. ZZZ.'." Fast passenger steamships will be ".Z tt advantage to the port because - - they carry Mrge quantities of ex- - press freight of high value, such as nilk and tea. They will therefore -wi. ... lead to establishment in this port of r!dl-, firms dealing in those commodities. I Every passenger that they carry will ";-ba a walking, talking advertisement '.Z'. for the port on both sides of the """"" ocean, from the mere fact that he ' will sail for and land at Portland; "will see the city, will do business ;"here and will tel of what he sees j j and hears. ! '. "? i " Although passenger liners will ! , flraw more water than cargo vessels, !5irtnere is no doubt of ample depth in ;;;the channel for them.. While the '-ummer freshet always' leaves de i posits on the bars, dredging always "begins when the river Is about ten ,' C r. feet above zero, and the bars are ! Z '.cut down as the water recedes. The -river is rarely at zero before late tall and early wifiter, and by that .. time the established depth ot thirty feet will have been restored except ; at a few points toward the mouth ; of the Columbia, where vessels can take advantage of a tide ranging i from four and a half to six feet. This ) ' may be necessary for only about a ; v month, for the river Remains at zero etage about that length of time be- i fore it begins to rise. . Plans have been made by Major Klattery, the United States engineer. ' and James H. Polhemus, general manager of the port of Portland, for complete pooling of their dredging fleets bo that they may concentrate " ' their efforts first on the bars below the mouth of the Willamette, where are the highest bars and the least tides, and then to work their way down tho Columbia. Five dredges. , two of the government and three of , the port, will begin work as a team ' about the middle of July and by the middle of October they should have restored the thirty-foot depth every- . where- except whero the freshet shoals the channel least and th tide . is highest. At those points work be -completed during tie early winter, after which the whole' fleet will clean out the lower At'il-1 lamette. When the passenger ves sels come in September, the way will be clear for them. , At the same time the channel will, be widened to 500 feet, with the effect that the slope of the banks will be more gradual, there will be less - shoaling and the established dep'th will be more easily main tained. The way will thus be pre pared for deepening to 33 and later to 35 feet, a depth which could not long be maintained in the present width of S00 feet. The amount of ocean traffic now coming into the Columbia is held by the government to Justify continued large expenditure, and hy bearing half tTfte expense: the port of .port land disposes of . hesitation on the part of congress to make appropria tions. Actual traffic has thus assured a channel adequate for the largest ships which wish to enter the river, and opens an early prospect that the biggest liners will run from Portland not only to the Orient but to all ports on the Pacific and to Europe and Africa. The two vessels which are now asked will be but a beginning. " VICTORY WON BT DIVISION. ' The significance attached by Senator Johnson's managers to , his plurality in the Oregon primary is obliterated by the fact that they err in attributing it tp "the combined efforts of his opponents." The efforts of his opponents were not combined, but were scattered in the declaration of the voters' preference for president. If they had been combined, Johnson would have been decisively defeated, for he is about 2000 ahead of Wood, and Hoover am? Lowden combined polled nearly 30 per cent .of the total vote. If the vote for all three pro-league candi dates had been combined for one of them, Johnson would have been beaten by a majority of about 35,000 The real sentiment of the voters on Johnson and his no-league policy was expressed in the vote on dele gates. Nine of the ten are both anti-Johnson and pro-league, and the largest vote was given to Mc Cam'ant, who declared that he would not vote for Johnson even if the popular vote should be in favor of the senator. The only declared Johnson delegate was elected by single-shooting on the part of his friends. The vote on delegates conclusively proves that, if the people had voted for one pro-league candidate for president as they voted for one pro- league ticket for. delegates, they would have rejected him as well as his policy. The moral effect of his victory is destroyed by this obvious meaning of the figures. CO-OPERATIVE OWNERSHIP. Joint ownership of homes, a sub ject made timely by scarcity of houses, high rents and the modern leaning toward apartment-house life. becomes complicated in proportion to the increasing number of persons it .is necessary to include in a given enterprise. Recently in the east a plan has been worked out which it is hoped will overcome seme of the obvious difficulties. It consists; of organization of. a joint stock com pany,, financed, in the manner usual in building operations. An apart ment house is designed, consisting of a certain number of apartments of varied size. , Subscribers receive assignments of shares in accordance with ttie kind and quality of the apartments of their choice. It has not been found hard to pro-rate these shares equitably, taking due account of the proportion properly chargeable to each for factors of common enjoyment -the 'roof, the hallways and staircases, the eleva tors, the basement, the janitor's quarters, and so on. So in theory the buyer becomes owner of the apartment In which he dwells, to gether with the necessary share of its appurtenances. To that point all goes well. , Complications are introduced when the owner desires to sell. It is plain that title without the right to dis pose of it is a mere figment, and it is found iri' practice also that apart ment house dwellers more than the owners of detached homes are under obligations of equity to the neighbors with whom they are in so close contact. The value of the property of - every continuing tenant, for ex ample, may be gravely affected if one of their number sells his interest to an undesirable Individual. Those who live In (and move out from) apartment houses know, if they are candid -with themselves,-that they are- themselves Influenced by this consideration, that they like to choose their neighbors, and that apartment houses have been known to "run down" appreciably as the result of negligent management in this regard. In ther effort to meet this situation a plan has been devised that makes the apartment owner practically the tenant of himself. . He pays rent, but this is returned to him, less running expenses, in the form of dividends. But when he desires to move, his stock only is marketable. He may retain this if he chooses to do so, whereupon the vacant apartment is rented by the managers, and he continues to draw dividends, if there are any, in proportion to the amount -of his stock. He continues to be a landlord, though no longer with him self as tenant. The obvious obstacle to successful co-operative ownership of homes on a considerable scale is Inherent in the nature and the habits of the people themselves. Apartment house dwellers In particular constitute a peripatetic element of the popula tion. They lack the permanency of folks who are rooted in the soil. Changes of employment necessitate moving, which even stock owner- snip is not likely to restrain. Th co-operaDvely built apartment sooner or later becomes a renting enter prise. The outs then cease to be advocates of low rent and become concerned with returns on their in vestments. The -ins are mere tenants, a uwurs ins enterprise was launched. No enduring solution of the housing problem is found. . The durable satisfactions of home wnership are derived from intl mate-connection with the soil. The plot of ground in which to potter, and over which to exercise the right of personal demesne, is the real basis of pride in title.) The stockholder in the' hotel or apartment house is not' and cannot be the same as the owner in fee of a city lot, however humble the house upon it. The drift apart mentward is the result nf ; . . .... . . . effort to escape from irksome details that attend living lu real houses, but it entails sacrifices that those who are imbued with the ancient sense of ownership will seldom be willing to make. The best that probably can be said for the new co-operative scheme is that it "symbolizes awaken ing of desire for independence from landlords, but it misses the main point We do not like, as a matter pf fact, to co-operate in matters that involve our privacy; we move from apartment to apartment on .the slightest provocation or no provoca tion because this is true; and no title to a home that does not approxi mately make the head of the house hold lord over all the domain within its boundaries from the center of the earth to the sky is likely, to endure among a people predominatingly Anglo-Saxon fn their traits.' " -' ON WITH THE DANCE. ' Mr. ITRcn's latest proposed, con stitution might,, we think, have been written with less, attention to gross materialism. The author of -.-the measure that may go on the ballot seems to assume that everybody's first thought is of laws pertaining to the particular job he holds,-or vocation he. follows. - The member- shiD of the legislature under the terms of this interesting' document is to be apportioned on an' occupa1 tional basis, so many to-the farmers. so many to the farmer housewives; so many to the cooks and waiters; 0 many to the professional men and women; so many to the. loggers, so many to the clerks; and' sb on.-.. On what basis is the- supposition laid that the cooks andVwaiters, and loggers and, clerks and' professional men have special Interest in. laws pertaining to their occupations? Mr. ITRen, himself a lawyffr, has devoted his lawmak'ng energies in -the past not to legislation pertaining to the lawyer's profession, but to' laws per taining to his avocation. Lxperi mentation in government being his hobby, he has sought early and late to devise Jaws that will make ex perimentation in government . easy for him and everybody else. . If we are going to apportion legis lative membership according to class interests, let's make it on the avoca tion or hobby basis. The person whose mind is always on his job is usually so prosperous and contented that laws regarding his kind of employment worry him not a whit. But there are thousands who while at work have their minds on the baseball game, the boxing match, the fishing stream, the auto mobile road, the evening dance, the motion picture theater or something else extraneous but agreeable. Fish and game laws occupy a substantial portion of the code. Why not give the fishermen and hunters special representation in the legislature? There ought to be a law imposing capital punishment on the umpire who makes a raw deci sion. . Let s give the baseball fans a block of votes at Salem. - The motion picture audiences are interested in getting what they want. Let them be protected against undue censor ship by having votes of their own in the legislature. State traffic laws pertain aJmost wholly to dr'vers of automobiles, and automobilists pay for the roads dash it, they are taxed without representation! . " Let's produce a real novelty for the admiration and envy of the whole world. There are the society buds, the golf players, the jitney dancers, the bathing beach swim mers and paraders, the pool hall habitues, " the book worms, -and numerous others, to say nothing of those before mentioned, who ought to have a voice of their own in gov ernment. Work and production are the least of our worries. Down with materialism and on with the dance. BEE-KEEPING AND ITS 1ESSONS. "Bees, like people," remarks Pro fessor A. L. Lovett in an interesting bulletin issued by the extension serv ice of Oregon Agricultural College, "are always on the lookout for easily gotten gains." The moral is no less obvious in its application to the hab its of bees, or to people as a whole. than it is to bee keepers as a re stricted class. The bee industry has suffered in kind if not in degree from some of the misapprehensions that attend poultry raising. Bees, no more than hens, have the faculty of bringing themselves up and making their owners rich without- the lat ter's help. There is no more a royal road to honey, the universal sugar substitute, than there is to chicken potpie and fresh-laid eggs. Professor Lovett reminds us, how" ever, that as a "pastime for persons fairly adapted to the work" bee keeping offers great possibilities. Emphasis ought to be put on the words "adapted" and "work." We get nothing for nothing nowadays. But "there is probably no section of Oregon where a few stands of bees cannot be successfully maintained and in an average season made to produce a few stands of honey." Our farmers need to be reminded again, as Professor Lovett reminds them, that the bee does an incidental serv ice, probably not far inferior to honey production, by acting as an agency for the pollenation of fruit trees. The fruit grower can obtain a double profit from his apiary, in the honey and wax obtained and in added yield and value of fruit through cross-pollenation. The lat' ter aspect of commercial fruit grow ing has only recently begun to be ap preciated. There is reason to be lieve that It can be widely extended. As Professor Lovett -observes, it Is probably the exceptional season when honey bees are of much serv ice in pollenlzlng -ted clover, but many other field crops are almost constantly benefited. Larger plant !ng of alsike clover, one of the highly meritorious legumes, is likely to mean not o.ly increased produc tion of forage, but also better fruit and a fair excess of excellent honey." No farmer, the . bulletin says, should be without a few stands of bees. Enough honey for home con sumption can be obtained -from one or two stands; we wish for the sake of the sugar situation that there were more raisers adapted to -the business. The requirements, after all, are not too complex. There Is the "initial apprehension of handling bees" to be overcome, which Is largely matter of. - temperament- Next to this come willingness. to study and desire to work. The beginner should view, the other side ox xne- picture. roritaDie bee keeping re quires ihoso study and application to de tail:- wora ana mat, too. at the proper time, .rarucuiany in western Oregon where climatic conditions are not idea and at best are variable in. the spring, wisely administered manipulations are es- sential to the -greatest success. Bees have infectious diseases. It is necessary to know aamcUiios of the nature ol these disorders and willingness to 'combat them if one would succeed ui a large way. There are other reasons why bee culture ought to be profitable." We find them in the brief description Professor Lovett gives of the waya of bees. ""Any sweetened substance," he tells ambitious novices, "when left uncovered in any quantity may serve as the exciting cause to throw a. whole apiary into great confusion. If any bees, or a colony of bees, can gain access to these substances, they will be looking for more for a num ber of days, and manyof the old bees will try to get into nearby hives." Tust a taste of "something for nothing," it will be noted, dis rupts -the whole economic scheme. But the. honey output suffers,- of course, and there is no evidence that those- lost; days ever are atoned for. As a pleasing occupation for a phi losopher, or a budding sociologist, we are inclined to commend apicul ture.. There would be less said about shortage of production if only a small proportion, of our social re formers- would consider the example or the-bee. DATXJGHT SAVING ST 1 1. 1.

The popularity of daylight saving. Indeed, had been so general in New Tork state that a great many cities., and towns had enacted daylight saving ordinances and were prepared to continue them in force regardless of .the action of the legislature or the governor. Governor Smith admits that there is a "sharp conflict of opinion" on the .subject. The opponents of day light saving' cling to the argument that' they will -bo. unable to keep help on the farm for the. hour in ihe afternoon beyond which day workers do not toil in the cities-and that it ts impossible to start work an hour earlier in the morning be cause of atmospheric and other conditions. The latter probably is true in some cases; but the governor evidently does notbelieve that farm hands will refuse to abide by a work schedule that is in their own interest merely because workers in other places are not subject to the same rule. With cities and towns deter mined to save daylight by local law, he sees no reason why there should be two sets of laws on the subject. - . The result in New Tork will be that the cities will move their clocks ahead and the country dis tricts wili do so or not, according to individual preferences. It is evident that Governor Smith does not believe a food famine will result.
