During the 61 years of Its exis-
.euoe : the Republican' party has
never declared In favor of or intl-
v mated that it favored such taxes.
It has done nor said nothing to indi
cate that it had or, ever under any
circumstances woul3 have any lean
ing In the direction of or any sym
pathy' with such' taxes. The Demo
cratic party, on the' contrary, has
- repeatedly declared in favor of such
taxes and has been accused of be
ing popullBtlc, socialistic, - even an
archistic, on tha account. If Roose
velt were nominally as well as really

and politician In the country would

V?''i ,TACOMA dispatch says that
tV A' Horticultural Commissioner
ftX IIunUy of the Btat0 of Waah
. . ,i lngton. who has been condemn
ing Oregon fruit shipped Into Wash
lngton, declared when called down
for ; unjust discrimination sgalnst
(Oregon fruits that "Oregon is the
f worst pest-ridden state In the union,
and I have been Keeping a sharp'eyc
n all the fruit that comes across
the line." And in support of this
.wholesale charge he mentions a ship
ment of pears from Marlon county
which he turned down, although the.
Inspector of that county declared the
fruit free from posts. . ,' '
As to this case we have no knowl
edge, and we can readily believe that
sn occasional shipment of Oregon
fruit across - the line is subject . to
criticism; but we have no doubt that
tlie Washington Inspector's charge la
faLso, and a piece of . the general
policy pursued in Puget sound cities
to run down, slander and make false
representations about everything
produced in Orrrron. It la so with
everrthln Orrr on has occasion to
rend across toe line, no mailer now
rtvellent an4 unobjectionable in all

eggs are changed for eastern cold

name. ' So with Oregon oheeee, or
other products; there is a widespread
conspiracy over there lo injure the
reputation and depreciate the valoe
of Oregon's products, though they
are first-class la every respect, and
this fruit commissioner appears to
be an active agent t the conspiracy,
The Webber-Iinwel Canning com

advertises daily In Tbe.-Jfrirnal for
Oreglki fruits. In Itself conclusive
refutation . of the Washington In
spector's slander. ' Such a firm would
not import pest-infeatei trnlt from
Oregon, yet It Is in the market for
all it can buy. Indeed, there has
been much comment during the past
tumrner over the fact that Washing
ton buyers offered much higher
prices than Oregon buyers did. and
so secured a large proportion of our
berryand fruit, crops. These men
know what Oregon fruit is, and are
glad to get It, overbidding Oregon
buyers, which "would not be the case
If there were any truth in the com
Besides, Oregon has or is obtain
ing the highest reputation of any
state In the union for quality and
price of Its-fruit In Chicago, New
Tork and Europe, which it certainly
could not do if its fruit were as rep
resented by this slandering official.
It would seem to be unnecessary and
a very small piece of business for
an official of. so good and great a
state as Washington thus to mis
represent and slander the products
of a neighbor state, because it is
capable of producing , a great deal
more and a great deal better fruit
than Washlngtdn does. Washington
beats Oregon in several respects, as
we Oregonians cheerfully Acknowl
edge, but if in anything Oregon sur
passes Washington there are a lot
of officials and business people over
there, principally along Puget sound,
who resort to any sort of, misrepre
sentations and slanders in order tq
conceal or distort that fact. And
this statement about Oregon fruit Is
a sample of the manifestation of this
spirit , " :--
" COUNTY SCHOOL FAIRS.
A MOVEMENT of consequential
import is on In Yamhill, Polk
Xa and Benton? counties.' , It had
its beginning-In Polk ' and
Yamhill last year. It Is in the form
of county school " fairs. In - which
public school pupils grow agricul
tural,, horticultural and garden pro
ducts and exhibit them in competi
tion for handsome prizes awarded by
competent Judges. The children also
present exhibits of cookery, bread
making, canned fruits , and othe
products of k domestic science and
arts, flowers, drawings, composition,
essay , writing, spelling and other
public school work. The plan Is to
interest growing boys and girls in
the lines of endeavor on farm, in
home and in school, and cause them
to learn by competitive effort Inten
sified and best methods in these
lines. ';'v-,'j : :! ' ;
: The excellence and efficacy of the
plan Is unquestioned. The two or
three days fair at which the pro
ducts are exhibited and prizes
awarded l a great county occasion.
Huge crowds attend, that In Benton
county this week being enormous.
The interest is county wide, and the
addresses by prominent . men, the
music, the awarding of prizes are
effects that , give Inspiration to
youthful contestants. The result Is
that exhibits prepared . by young
hands equal or even excel the best
old folks can do. Thus, Interest In
the work, and knowledge of how to
do it, awakened! at a tender age,
means worlds of good for these fu
ture citizens and housewives of the
country. One little girl of but ten
years is reported . to have ; become
under the stimulus of one of these
fairs, ail expert bread maker , and
able at any time to prepare the fam
ily meal. Boys of a dozen years
are handling teams, cultivating. Irri
gating and nursing farm crops with
the result thai prodigious growths
are obtained. The lessons so learned
are lessor! for life, and that time
nor tide can take away. The Interest
awakened, in many an instance, will
not "flag, but go on increasing, and
the result will be the evolution of
wide-awake," Investigating . young
farmers and home maids, of a kind
that in years to come, as they drop
the bucket into the well, wfll not al
ways draw It up -empty. ' , :
AN OBJECT LESSON.
IN, THE prolonged strike of the
telegraphers thq, people are get
ting, an argument or object les
son on government ownership as
against private 'ownership of public
utiltlos, that they can readily under
stand. The Buffalo Times suggests:
"Go to the postoffice, buy a stamp
and pui It on an addressed envelope.
Then go down to the telegraph office
and trv to send a telesram. It will
be pretty plain to yon then that gov
ernment ownership of means of com
munication has some very striking
It will be, strange If this object

But there are always plausible and

long are the people of this country

the part of its publio service cor
porations f Not forever, we think.
England owns its telegraph sys

they never strike, and it only coats

. AN OFFICIAL HELPER.
ORTLAND AND the Columbia
river region are fortunate in
having, at this time so capable,
earnest and-Jfelthf ul ''a worker
for an open river in his very impor
tant position as Colonel Roessler, the
government engineer In charge of all
Columbia and Willamette river Im
provements. Without any disparage
ment to any of his predecessors, who
were also very friendly officially to
the work of opening these rivers, It
may be said that Colonel Roessler
is thoroughly awake to the Impor
tance of these projects, and within
the limits of his official duties will
do everything : within Jtfs power to
farther the open river cause. His
recent , report on , the Celllo canal
project indicated not -only a com
plete mastery of the subject but 'a
deep and Warm Interest In it, ttch
as 1 certainly is entirely proper for
an officer In his position to manifest
In so great and important an im
provement that is under his charge.
We are . sure that while Colonel
Roessler's reports on this and other
projects within his Jurisdiction will
of course be based strictly and solely
on cold facts, he will not fall to
recommend the thorough and prompt
prosecution of them, with a view to
the relief and benefit of this region.
He is apparently the, right man In
the right place, not only for the gov
ernment but for the people of the
Columbia river country. '
Again it is announced through the
utterances of various Republican
leaders that there will be no tariff
revision by this congress. Wall
street doesn't want it. The trusts
do not want it, ; The protected in
terests, that are authorized by the
present tariff law to plunder the
American people of hundreds of mil
lions annually, do not want' It. The
politicians who serve all these inter
ests Instead of the masses of people
do not want It The common peo
ple do want revision next year, but
the leaders care nothing for them.
At an age when many 'men art

Richard Mansfield, America's great
est actor, broke down, and after sev

The Bar association stood aghast
at the proposition that criminal

They are all alike in kind. If not in

combination of r sJch corporations
and their merger into a trust, for
the purpose of controlling supply

That Is whafa trust Is. None Is
good; no, not one. "
It has been the custom for the big
corporations to capture the bright

Reason Mhy Oar Hair Becomes Gray
While inths majority of oasea gray
hair Is darn of as, there are. tow
ever, many instances when the poss
essor of gray hair Is but a young man
or young woman, perhaps tbe moat eft-
en among the latter. Among the many
explanation that have been advanced
ty science the most interesting- recent
ly appeared in the Youth s Companion.
A peculiarity about the gray hair of
the youni Is that It Is most' always
entirely white, and becomes so suddenly.
All the hairs are equally affected, and
one seldom sees the mixed -color, or iron
gray, so common In those of middle or
Sometimes In the young, even In chil
dren, there Is one gray lock like an
Island In the sea of normally colored
hair about It. This Is usually a family
peculiarity, occurring In one generation
after the other..
. The cause of- the hair turning gray Is
something that -pussies the doctors. The
color of the hair Is due to the deposit
of pigment In the Interior of each hair,
and grayneas follows the loss of this
plgmunL That Is self-evident, but the
puzsle Is what causes the pigment to
disappear. Some have believed that It
is due to tne drying or tne nair, wnicn
causes a shrinkage of Its fibres, and
so allows the entrance of air bubbles,
the refraation of light from Which then
elves the white aDoearance.
The proof which Is adduced In sup
port of this belief Is that If a gray hair
is put Into the receiver of an air pump
and the.' air Is, then exhausted tbe color
of the hair may return more or leas
completely. . ......
Metchnlkoff, the famous bacteriolo
gist, says the cause of grayness Is the
penetration into the hair of wandering
cells, resembling the white blood cor
puscles. These cells assisted by other
cells, the aggregation of which makes
the hair, seise -upon the granules of
pigment and destroy them.
Nearly svery one bas read of instan
ces of the sudden bleaching of the hair
even In a single night under the in
fluence of fear, grief or some other In
tense mental emotion.- That such cases
have occurred Is undoubted, but the ex.
planatlon by either of tbe theories above
mentioned is dlffloult
There Is no cure for gray hair so far
as is known. The use of curling Irons
is said to retard Its formation; perhaps.
If Metchanlkoff Is right, by destroying
the activity of the cells which consume

So as not to hit the bank; -With

He tried to nil the tank.
In passing; over a gravel bar
They felt a dreadful shock.
Then Captain Wear shouted:

And started up a blase:
The farmers saw not the fire
Through all the fog and hase.
Graham seized a milk can .
. And leaped into the water, ,
While Captain, Mr. Wear,
Tried to save his wife and daugbtes
In trying to save his family
All three of there were drown!
Johnnie, who had reached the snore,

Fortunate for the deck hand
There was a schoolhouse near; -
He spent a weary night In this,

said, "The Llanos are a tribe of uncivil

"The cinchona Is shrubbery drying up

A language is just as much a living
thing aa a human being. It Is just as
much a matter of growth, evolution,
development, as any child. -
A language grows, as a tree grows.
The language of man began with a few
rough sounds, gruntliiKs. whistlings, at
first Indicating probably fear, warning
and anger. This slight beginning of
language has grown into the various
beautiful languages of the world, with
their wondrous power of thought ex
pression, lust as the acorns have spread
and developed Into the beautiful oaks
that form tbe forests. -
Each language is a record of a race
of men. Each language bas struggled
for existence through the past aa the
races of men have struggled.
Escly word has seen Us changes. Its
varied meanings, every word has its
history, and every word Is beautiful In
its power of condensed expression.
To try to manufacture a language
out . of odds and ends in a so-called
"aclantlfla wav" is nonsense. Tou may

charming thing, a growing thing. At
present the English language dominates
on this earth, as regards the number of

The great soul Is the teacher, al

and it does not expect all the little
children of earth to understand at once.
Just in the measure that you criticise
the world for Its lack of appreciation
of yourself or your work you are de
claring your own mediocrity. ,n
Because you can stop to carp and
cavil and find fault with tbe world's
lack of perception, you prove that your
mind s not Ailed with divine light
which drowns all petty thoughts and
feelings in Its radiance.
If you have a message for humanity,

We must feel a certain sense of satis

He must be conscious of a hitter taste
