RAISE MORE CORN TO" RAISE
Apropos to the agitation for the for
warding of the hog raising Industry,
there Is a story of a Middle West far
mer, who, desiring to purchase a piece
' of land to add to an already extensive
farm, was asked for what he wanted It,
"I want that land to raise mora corn
to raise more nogs to get more money
to buy more land to raise more corn to
t raise more bogs to get more money," ad
There Ufa world of wisdom for the
" Oregon farmer In the above quoted re
' mark, which never was made, of course.
If there la to be an improvement In thu
business of raising hogs, there must be
' Improvement. So simple a proposition ,i
' trite when read In type, yet, simple as
It ta, it baa never been appreciated by the
farmer of this state.
' Ringing to the ld-faBhloned methods
o( agriculture, devoted to 'wheat culture
only, for the most part, they have never
gone through the chain of developing
steps that must be taken before there
will be any curing of the existing Indus
trial defect, of sending to the East for
packing bouse products.
In a state that baa Oregon's unrivalled
advantages, It Is almost unthinkable that
we buy packing bouse products from
Chicago or Kansas City. The farmers
bar never inaugurated, or, at least, not
" to any extent diversified farming. And,
untU that be done there will be a contln
uanca of the hauling of trainloads of
hams and bacon Into the state.
" When farmers raise wbat hogs eat,
and feed It to them, and supply packers
with material to keep going a plant that
must be' In continuous operation In order
to profit to the owner, then will Oregon
cease the senseless business of paying
rail tolls upon food that they may raise
right here at home.
, It Is pertinent to suggest that the Ore
gon farmer raise more corn or, some
thing else, alfalfa, for Instance, in order
that they may raise more hogs and get
.'more money and get more land and get
thereby more and better prosperity.
- BUY A ROSE BOOK.
- The Journal has pleasure In printing
here mention of the rose book that has
, been issued by the Portland Rose Society,
and in telling the people that they should
go to Meier & Frank's or Llpman St
'Wolfe's or J. K. Gill St. Co.'s store and
buy one. The book has been printed by
the society for the purpose of forwara
4ng the movement for the cultivation of
roses. It ts one of the effective means
that are being employed to make Port
land the ' City of Roses, aad especially
to prepare that it shall be a bower of
rose, floral beauty when the Lewis .and
Clark Centennial opens Its doors in 1906.
' In the volume are papers and addresses
Jby Mr.. Frederick V. Hoi man and Mr.
William 8. Slbson, and therein the rose
enthusiast may find direction and 'en
'eouragement. The papers are not writ
ten in technical phrasing, but are such
'a to be readily understood by anyone
who knows the rudiments of flower cul-
v These gentlemen have performed a val
uable service for the city, in devoting
time and mind to so commendable labor.
' The society Is to be Indorsed for what has
: been accomplished. It will later receive
,- more fervid recognition, 'for it Is the de
; termination of its members that the
.-. present achievements shall be but a
tithe of the final results may wi.i at

V ', ' .OF HO iOLAND.
' It is at this time of year that the agri
culturist wants help to harvest hls-erops,
and It la at this time of year that he ex
periences difficulty in getting it He sees
a stream, of "hobos" flowing past his
farm-bouse doors, and yet he must hurry
to town, anon, to implore men to go out
upon the farms and accept good wages
for his services, with good board thrown
in. ? S'j
However, among the hobo chaff that
comes from the mill of human life's dally
threshing, there Is little of wheat, and
rot all of that mass of apparently worth-
less humanity lacks value. Men there be
who float over tha'ceuntry, working here
today, and there tomorrow, going from
the South, where they work during the
earlier harvests, to the North, for the
later, and) making the Journey by gradual
Wot ail of those who ride upon brake
beams or who shiver during the night
winds on the blind baggage, are genuine
hobos. True, they "bum" their way, and
their philosophy Is somewhat question
able, inasmuch as they go upon the the
ory that they may, without being un
ethical, steal transportation from the
railroad company. But, they are workers
and necessary to the carrying on of the
great agricultural industry.
It Is probably true that, were It not for
the labor wheat that Is In the chaff of
Hobolasd, the farmer would suffer im
mense losses, and there, would of necessity
be a radical alteration of the economics
of the farm. The harvest brings work at
a certain time of year that Is slack dur
ing other times, and there must be some
manner of giving the supply.
It. may be that the argument is some
what irregular, and does not align with
the accepted social philosophies; never
theless, we of agricultural communities
could not do without the hobos who carry
so many good workers with them.
It also should be grateful to the Weary
Willies, thus to be dignified Into essential
members of the social organism, yet there
Is more than Idle sentiment In the fore
going bit of attempted exegesis of the
philosophy of the land of Hoboland.
INDORSINQ PAST PLATFORMS.
In the name of good political common
sense, why need there be always, when
ever a Democratic convention meets, the
same old wrangle over whether or not
some platform formulated In the past
shall be Indorsed T Is there ever to be In
stilled into the Democratic mind this
vital principle that positive address to
lems ts the secret of success for political
bodies, while eternal harping upon old
Issues and pointing with pride to some
past achievement or debate over the
things that have been will fasten to
the ship of party the barnacles of dead
Issues and prevent progress to the haven
The Missouri Btate convention meets,
and all' that the country knows of their
proceedings Is that they fought over the
same old chaff that was threshed out in
the campaigns of 1896 and 1900. True,
they touched upon the trusts and auxil
iary matters, but the main contention was
the Indorsement or rejection of the Kan
sas City Platform.
. For the sake of good government, for
the salvation of the party that, with all
its weaknesses herein set forth. Is the
nearest approximation to true Ideals in
this country, let there be a turning
towards the future, and let there be a
cessation of the tiresome discussion as
to whether or not there Is to be indorse
ment of any platform that ever was
drawn la the past. Else, the Democratic
party may as well go out of the politic!!
MASHERS ARE NOT TOUGHS.
A crusade has been Btarted against i.ie
street "masher," and It Is receiving the
support of everyone everywhere It has
been inaugurated. There is not a city
In the country In which there is not more
or less of need for a campaign for the
suppression of this unlovely sample of
the genus homo.
There Is one fact, however, that may
well be kept In mind. It ia not from
the toughs that mashers come. Here in
Portland, the masher lives not In the
North End. He comes from homes In
which dwell the best people. He springs
from the best families. He Is, in short,
not a tough although be is the worst
sort of a touch.
The Idea is that the man who belongs
to the rlflraft of humanity seldom in
sults women upon the streets. He keeps
his distance. He respects good women.
The fellow who dresses In the height
of fashion, who Is "swell," Svho Is rather
sure that he is personally Irresistible, he
It is who drills In the ranks of the army
of mashers, and who sees to it that those
ranks never lack recruits.
This Is not to cast reflection upon good
families, for It goes without saying that
all ot us in this world think we ourselves
belong to that class. It is to call at
tention to an obvious truth, a truth that
will be conceded by all observant per
IF IT BE IN GOOD FAITH.
Whether or not a legislative committee,
working under appointment of the com
ing legislative assembly, reports that
there are no abuses In the office of the
Secretary of State and other stats offi
cials, depends much upon the good faith
In which they enter upon their work.
Rather, to state it differently, the value
vt their report will depend upon that mat.
tr of good faith.
The people of Oteyon want no Unjut
findings upon this cubject They demand
the truth. Thew want to know concern
ing servants who are entrusted with pub
lic business. They are anxious that prin
ciples that govern private business' be
applied to the business of the state.
For instance, they ' want to know
whether ' or not they are .paying a vwy
affable gentleman who possesses excel
lent, ability for bis duties, more than he
earns. If they are, then, tfiey propose tq
.stop sue bad business policy.
The long and short of tie 'whole mat
ter Is thlg-lnqulry should be Instituted
Into the Internal affairs of, the 'State
offices, and the exact facts ascertained.
Then, with fact and figures in hand, an
Intelligent decision may be reached.
This should be the spirit of the legisla
tive investigation. Any other will stamp
the whole proceedings as political chi-
cansry and unfit for the cltlsetis Of a
TARIFF EVOLUTION OR REVOLU
TION? Shall there be tariff evolution or tariff
revolution is the question before the
country. It Is wrapped up In all discus
sions pertaining to the progresj of eco
nomic thought nowadays, and refers to
the attitude of both Democrat and Re
publican. There remains not a shadow of a doubt
that the people demand some sort of re
vision of the tariff. It has gone beyond
the limits of speculation that conditions
warrant alteration in ihs heretofore en
forced doctrines of the ration, that pro
tection must Jae given to ALL manufac
turing industries. The Democratic party
has stood for the ultra-opposition, and
the Republican party for the ultra-supporters
of the idea. Between the two
have been millions who really were net
far apart, but who at times were forcibly
separated by the dicta of party manag
ers. But the day has come when intelligent
revision of the tariff Is demanded by
the majority, and if there be not evolu
tion in the process there may be revo
lution, that Is, revolution of methods of
dealing with the tariff schedules.
In other words, there must be recogni
tion of the demand by the party in power
lest there be radical measures that shall
disturb the conditions of commerce and
A Judge at Colfax, Wash., sentenced
ex-Auditor Oroesbeck to seven years for
stealing a warrant for $1700. Apparently,
up there, there are Judges who are like
Daniel come to judgment. Tet, he is sad
ly out of the fashion. For, who ever heard
of courts convicting and sentencing men
who once have had or who at the time
have over their shoulders the mantle of
fflclal authority? At any rate, such
cases are rare. Their consideration, in
view of their scarcity, is almost as much
work of supererogation as it would be
to study dentistry for hens.
Street fairs and carnivals are becoming
features of American life. In Borne form
or other, they are resorted to In many
cities as a means to let the people relax
from the weary humdrum of life, and en
gage for the nonce lu recreative sports.
They possess a value, too, a value that
the American people have been genera

only learned In part, up to this time.

WASHINGTON COUNTY METROPOLIS
A cording to R. B. Qreer, a merchant of
Hlllsboro, Who was lit the city last even
ing, the metropolis of Washington Coun
ty is just now on the Svs of a considera
ble boom. The people of that thriving
little city are very confident that the
electric railway line will soon be built
from their town to Portland. However,
there is no great excitement, yet the
growth of the towns in the county has
been steady and permanent, as has also
been the ganeral development throughout
the county. One of the very Hkely ac
quisitions for Hlllsboro In thVtiear future
Li a condensed milk plant, all the de
tails having been practically arranged.
Dr. Tammlsse is the promoter of this en
terprise, having the assistance, of course,
of all the business men. The plant will
necessitate the expenditure of about HO,

"The people of Oregon have no Idea of
what the development of the Bohemia
mining district will mean to the state,"
said C. J. Howard, editor of the Nugget
at Cottage Grove, Who, with his wife,
arrived in the city this forenoon. "The
construction of the Southeastern & Ore
gon railroad from Cottage Grove to Bo
hemia will open up the most extensive
agricultural and timber district in the
state, aside from the mining interests.
There are ten miles of roadbed graded
and seven miles of track laid, and the
line will be completed just as soon as
men and money can do the work." Mr.
Howard is also postmaster at Cottage
Grove, and is in a position to become fa
miliar with all business conditions. There
Is one mine In the Bohemia district which
has over 00,000 tons of ore on the dump
ready for shipment as soon as the rail
road is completed, and a very large mill
is also being constructed. Mr.; Howard
spoke in a very modest way, but the. fact
could be detected that he felt- that he
lived in the best part of Oregon.

LUXURY IN HAMMOCKS.
"No," said a man who deals in ham
mocks, "It Is not exactly the Ttlnd of
hammocks that you would hang out In
the spring between two trees and leave
out until fall for the winds to blow and
the rain to beat upon; but It Is beautiful,
Is it not?"
It certalnlly was a beautiful hammock;
all silk in a canvas weave, and not far
from an unbleached canvas in color, be
ing a sort of a creamy tint.
It was very simple, almost a plain
hammock. The weave was simple, and
the hammock had very little other orna
mentation. There were a few embroidered green
leaves scattered on the vallances, which
were fringed, end a few leaves of the
same sort on the pillow, and that was
all. The spreaders were round and plain,
and 'of the color of the hammock, as also
were 'the silken cords by which the ham
mock was suspended.
But for all its simplicity you could
tell the hammock for what It was across
the room. It was beautiful, and made of
such material It certainly suggested a
degree of luxury that on might not ex
pect to find in a common hammock.
And it wasn't so very costlr. either.
Sixty-flve dollars this one cost but you
can buy silk hammocks for much less
for as little. In fact, as $13.60. From that
up silk hammocks are to be found in
various weaves, plain and fancy, and In
various colors and combinations of color
in the materials used; In various styles
as to plainness or elaborateness of finish.
