I HK HAYWOOD Jury, as The

case, would not convict the de
fendant oa the evidence of the
Infamous' assassin. Orchard. The ab
horrence excited by bis self-confessed
crimes undoubtedly destroyed 'In
great degree the force of his testi
mony, even though it. was confirmed
' In many points, by other witnesses.
' Ko Jury could be expected' to give
full, unbesHatlng credence to the
story of a man so steeled and sodden
dn wickedness, so 'oblivious of every
i ijlaw1' of- God or man. Doubtless the
f jiurorsTtrgned that a man who could
' perpetat a crime ao dlattollpal as

more reason or motive than Orchard
professed, would not scruple to
assassinate through' the medium of
the law' Haywood Moyer and Petti-
lone, when -by so doing heenlght
save himself from. the gallows; ,
In' the opinion of the twelve men
who tried.-Haywood,-the evidence
was not sufficient to convict and a
verdict of acquittal was therefore
the only alternative. There can be
no second 'trial and Haywood goes
free By many the result will be
hailed with deep satisfaction. . But
many more 'will consider that the
verdict leaves, unanswered the. mues-

FORAKER HEARD FROM.
SENATOR FORAKER took ad
vantage of a Chautaugna occa-
slon Saturday to , express his
' r- , 1 mind and let the country know
that he was still alive and In a kick-
lng disposition. Senator Toraker Is
entitled to a considerable measure of
respect and admiration, for It la ap
parent that he ha the, courage to
; declare ' his opinions, or some of
them, at least partially. It la pos
sible that he Is a good deal more
sincere than some who profess to be
devoted to the Roosevelt policies, and
some who favor revision of the tariff,
but are careful not to go Into par
ticulars as to how or to What extent
they would .revise ft,.!,-. , .;. ' .
. Senator Foraker bluntly says that
he is a stand-patter, does not favor
ony tariff revision, and challenges
F crotary Taft and other alleged re
v! louiBt to sar where they would

A Journal's opinion ,'on the de

Judge Galloway's decision In regard
to what constitutes a properly signed
petition"; and the Inquirer ,Tolnn-
teers the, opinion that "the referfn
dum law Is as good as dead." .
The Journal is slow . to criticise

In the cases decided by Judge Gal

think the legislature was doing mis

made these, needless requirements,
The fact that the required number

foolishly or needlessly resorted to oc
casionally, and for that reason may
not be invoked In some cases when
it might be, well to do so, but It Is
a very necessary Instrument for the
people to keep In their bands, and
they may make- good use of It yet.
. CIVIC NEATNESS. )
ES, WE are a great people, .and
are accomplishing much, but
we can look abroad and learn
several things to our advan
tage. No man Is too wise to learn
from others, even if In most respects
they are lea wise than he. la the
really important matter of civic neat
ness Just neatness, rather than
beauty American cities, according
to the reports of travelers, are far
behind many foreign cities. We have
never heard much qf London being
a model of neatness, and perhaps it
is not In Its business sections, but
a London writer In the Outlook, con
trasting American' with English
cities in this "respect, says: ' "In the
residential suburbs of London every
thing looks as neat a a man fresh
from the operations' of a barber.
Here things suggest a man who-lets
bis hair grow as It pleases." Bo
far as American cities, each con
sidered as a whole, are concerned,
we believe this critio has not slan
dered them. Many: private grounds
are kept in a neat condition, but
one "will not travel far in any direc
tion to flrid a disagreeable contrast
In - grounds ugly ' with weeds and
rubbish. - ... .
It is not only the cities, but the
country as well, , that la England is
kept - neat... .Frugality conspiring
with neatness has in many places
turned portions of the railroad right
of way Into vegetable gardens., Vil
lages are as clean as a tidy house
keeper's home. ' Weeds are kept from
the road, the grasa of every 'small
yard la cut, and very frequently roses
are trained op the side of the house
and over the doorway. And. If. there
are vacant lots they are kept scrupu
lously free ' from weeds and litter.
"Every portion of the island," this
writer says, "seems to belong to
some one anxious to keep It In a
respectable condition." " This Is Jusf
the spirit and purpose that Ms so
XAiceably and jegretably lacking In
We realise that this Is a new
country as compared with England;
that English people -have had sev
eral centuries to our on to render
their country nesr that they have a
little country while we have a very
big one to look after, the population
there being many to our one, te
the square mile, and that therefore
we cannot be reasonably expected to
equal England In civic neatness; but
we can -and 'should Improve condi
tions a good deal, and more rapidly,

PEOPLE AND1 LEGISLATURE.
THERE IS nearly a million dol
lars in the state treasury. ' Ore-
X Con Is "in good shape," finan
cially. It owes no state debt
The big appropriations will all be
paid. , Everything Is all right,
isn't UT . ; ". Vr-v,:,
Being' something of-a kicker we
say no, and , the fault of . what Is
wrong 'rests entirely upon that ag
gregation of honorablea who .com
prised the last legislature. , They did
some good things, "some bad ones;
but towering above all these Is one
thing that they ought to have done,
and knew It, but did not do; that Is,
to shift the bufden of taxation which
provides this million dollars, and
must provide other; millions. -
There should be but' little' If any
state 'tax In Oregon hereafter.
Other states, notably Wisconsin, an-
der the masterful, leadership or La
Follette, make publio htllity and
other corporations pay for running
the state government, and relieve the
panpla entirely of a state tax; why
not Oregon? . ,
It la none too early to begin for
mulating and. expressing the demand
for this change. . The last legislature
knew very well what the people de
mandel Jn Jthla. respect, jret dldnoth
ing; nay, defeated such partial meas
ures as were proposed. The lesson
is "plain: Defeat ""every member of
the last legislature It he does not
hold over, who did not do all he could
to effect this change; and further,
make sure that every man elected
is specifically pledged to effect this
reform. , - , - -'

to take chances on what unpledged

Letters From tKe People"

Portland. July 87. To the Editor
of . the Journal la youf' lasue - of

oonoerlng the protection of pe
destrians from the reckless auto drivers.
It appears to me that Dr. Ong. a well
as ail previous doctors, has prescribed
the wrong remedy for the eradication of
this growing evil. He has followed the
old theory, which has ever caused the
trouble to break out In a more vtrulent
form, that of Increasing the noise of
blowing horns and clanging bells, while

upon trie autoiat and make him be on

Try paaalng a law aguinat bells and
horns and then let the pedestrian go
about his affairs showing the automo
bile the same courtesy accorded a horse
and buggy and the trouble Is ended. If
delivery wagons and hacks were allowed
to use bells and googa they would very
soon be going through our streets like
fire engines, for it Is human nature to
enjoy, seeing . the other fellow Jump.
There Is no reaaon why the autoiat
should not keep the same control of his
machine as the man with a horse, and
the privilege he ha of t creating a
nerve-racking noise Is the only explana
tion of why he does not do so. Bo long
