Statement No. 1 Aain.
The Portland Journal made a roar
because a few republican papers re
ferred to the fact that the people of
Oregon at the polls last year elected
members of the legislature without
any regard whatever as to their atti
tude toward Statement No. 1.
No denial has been made of this
fact, for It was true. Everybody
And when it was said that on ac
count of the action of tho people It
was likely that candidates generally
next year would not take Statement
No. 1, since tho people evidently did
not care anything about it, those
making the suggestion were at once
declared to be "enemies of the peo
ple," for referring merely to what the
people themselves have done.
And It was added that. the papers
making tho suggestion were wanting
a "return to tho scones of disorder
and riot at Salem."
To this it wasJ shown that to elect
the candidate who had been selected
at the primaries by His party would
result In an election by the legisla
ture on the i first ballot, and that
therii would be no possibility for a
scene "of riot and disorder," that
ground was abandoned and the asser
tion fallen back upon that "the peo
plo should be trusted."
So the round Is completed again.
The position of The Tribune, taken at
the first, that the entire matter rests
with tho people aa to Statement No.
1, and that their opinion of it must
Di-evall, is the correct one. If they
do not want it, and won't use It as
they didn't what harm Is done by
referring to tho fact?
Tho example sot by them was to
the- effect that they want the candi
date elected of. the majority party
who received the largest vote, and
this will, as frankly admitted by the
Journal of tho 30th hits., prevent
any "bceno of disorder and riot at
It- might not elect a democratic
.senator, to be sure, to the disappoint
ment of tho "non-partisan" .press,
but everything would bo orderly at
Salem, and tho members of the legis
lature would at tho same time have
the matter taken out of their hands
And tho consummation is a great
torward step in the right direction,
Isn't It? It would not result In the
election of a democratic bonator, but
If tho peoplo don't care for Statement
No. 1, and they didn't, let us accept
tho reform offered by them and
thank tho Lord for oven small favors.
What do you say, Brother Wager?

. . (Exchange.)
Tho other day a 57 year old woman
entered a ton mile swimming race
which was held at St. Louis. Four
years ago her physician told her that
hor lungs wore affected and her gen
eral health run down, lie advised
hor to take up swimming, because
that exorefso Inflates and donates tho
lungs llko'a hollows, spreading out
tho tissues and follicles to tho full
and airing them thoroughly. Sho
followed tbo wise doctor's advice,
and now sho is an athlete at the age
when most woiuon aro only half allvo
Dartmouth college lequlres every
ono of Its students to swim boforo it
allows thorn to graduate with tho de
gree of ..bachelor of arts. It holds
that swimming. In a more useful art
for 999 iu0u out of 'in thousand than
Bcir'nnlng. Aosthylim Many of ' tho
boTirdlng'schbtiiB in tho 'country riiako
swimming compulsory. So do An
napplls atid West Point.
As a life-saver, swimming is a good
deal like tho Texan's gun, which ho
said lie didn't need oftcn.but when he
did need it ho needed it big-expletlvo-ly
bad. But, unlike .the gun, swim
ming is a.Uo the best kind of fun for
the boy. It gives him big lungs, a
deep chest, a strong, regular heart. It
doesn't develop big bunches of mus
cles on the outside of him at tho ex
pense of his organs within, but it in
creases his vitality while keeping his
muscles long, flexible and quick. It's
a moral amusement; whiskey and
late hours don't mix with hard swim
ming. It's cheap; nature has pro
vided all tho ''necessary Impedimenta
of tho sport.
If you have a boy growing up and
you are conscientious about his edu
cation, don't make him spend all his
time at -Latin, spelling and dancing
school. See that he learns to swim.
It may save his life some day, and It
will certainly add to his grace and

Prof. Frederick Starr of the Uni
versity of Chicago has openly taken'
Hie stand that children would bo bet-'
ter off if they wore no clothing until
they were ten years old, and several
other' members of 'the faculty, to
gether with a few wealthy neighbors
in the exclusive south-side section of
Chicago, have jollied in a movement
to establish a rcbidentlal Utopia at a
cost of $50,000 or more for the pur
pose of putting tills theory into" practice.
