"SUSPENDED FOR THIRTY DAYS."
It strikes ss a bit anmwug that
Pilot Olney of the stamer LurHna,
recently sunk In the Columbia river
at Rainier, while in collision with the
steamer Cascades, should be punished
by a beggerly thirty-day suspension.
If he was guilty ot throwing his
steamer, laden with a score or more
of sleeping passengers and a good lot
ot valuable freight, across the bows
of the, steamer Cascades and) sub
jecting them to the perilous chance of
death In more ways than one, he de
serves the utter limit of the law's re
prisal and should have been barred
for life from handling the wheel of
any vessel afloat, in these waters, or
beyond them. The officers of the Cas
cades are not even involved m the
blame nor penalty; therefore, Kane Ol
ney is wholly and solely responsible
for the accident that sank his
steamer and all but engulfed his peo
ple. The decision Is a howling farce
and smacks of the littleness of con
temptible prejudice In places where no
prejudice is supposed to exist. The
fact of the business is, he is made the
cape-goat of an affair In which he
was willing to take his own share of
blame, which share would not nearly
cover the limit of responsibility in the
case. The bagatelle of punishment
meted out to htm Is proof positive that
he is practically guiltless of blame,
and is dealt out to him in such meas
ure as will obviate an appeal on his
pan, or me part or his owners; a
recourse as mean as the spite that
prompted punishing him In the first
FOR OREGON, JUST ONCEI
The coming session of the Oregon
legislature should be made almost
remarkable for the genuineness of the
work done there, for Oregon and Ore
gonlans. There are Illimitable ways
in which an honest and faithful legis
lator may work for, and achieve, the
largest measure of real common good.
.and surely the state needs it It Is
to be hoped that, just once, the real
needg of the commonalty will be at
tended to; that the railways, the cor
porations, the combinations, will be set
aside and the bulk of thought and ac
tion directed In the Interest of the
people. For the sheer sake of the odd
experience, let us have one legisla
tive session, devoted to the wants of

the broadest consideration of the men
they have sent there to serve them.
The old story of truckling to the
"vested interests" stinks In the nos
trils of the people of this state, and
the opportunity to do something pop
ular, wholesome, honest and conclus
ively .good for the people, should not
be lost" We know it Is almost assin
Ine to indulge in such vain longings.
but we risk the charge in the vague
hope that there are hearts and minds
among the ninety at Salem,
fresh and clean enough, to do & con.
spicuous measure of work for the vot
ers who sent them there, rather than
for the men and the concerns that are
reputed to own the state, and state
house, too. : , . ,

4 EDITORIAL. SALAD.
There are in the United States more
than sixty million acres of swamp
lands. Now that the agricultural lands
are becoming scarce and the govern
ment can show what it can do to wa
ter the barren deserts of the west, the
people of the country are beginning
to realise that the government might
be equally, successful In removing su
perabundant water. The fact has been
established that by drainage these
waste swamp lands may be rendered
habitable and productive. Since the
government has set aside millions of
dollars for the reclamation of the des
ert lands of the arid west through the!
agency ot Irrigation, this fact Is spe
cially Interesting, for the vast swamps
of the lower Mississippi valley and of
Florida, of the Sacramento valley of
California, of northern Minnesota and
the southeastern coastal plains are
now the only great remaining sources
of future agricultural land.
This poem Is unknown but a Kan

"The rose that smells the sweetest Is
the first to fade. The boy who runs
the fastest Is the one to soonest jade.
The brightest of the evenings has the
gloomiest dawns. The man who buys
the biggest yards must cut, the biggest
lawns. The apple that Is the biggest
has the fattest worm of all The fel
low who gets on In life is sure to
have a fall. The soup that looks the
clearest is the first to show' the flies.
The fellow who would sell the goods
must advertise. The henhat lays the
largest egg will be the first to set. And
things we always hanker for are the
last we get The simplest way is al
ways best, yet we pass it by, to dabble
with the tinseled things that fool and
catch the eye."
