of an early 'completion of

project. ' The "chord" ot an open
Columbia river should surely, "vl-
brate" harmoniously in the minds
of all the people ot this region, and
' more particularly among all-those
living In the great Columbia basin.
Of which Walla-Walla Is the largest
city. If we except Spokane. ' 7
It may be asked what the people
can do in the matter.. Every com
munity,' however small, can help to
swell the impression to. be made on
congress next winter.' Every news-
, paper, with however small , a con
stituency, can add to the demand to
be made. Every commercial club and
development league and city council,
and many Influential Individual cltl
sens 'as well, should be prepared to
""' "make " an Irresistible appeal - at
Washington. . Every possible effort
may be needed.l3omefriends pt
this region will not be In the next
congress, as they, have . been here
tofore, and new men wllKbave to
be "shown." Congress may be play-
. Ing politics considerably, and this
corner of the country Is considered
"safe" without giving It any appro
prlation. Persistent and energetic
. work may : be necessary,1" and we
must prepare tcr de it, Z
The stake is one of great im
edly pointed . out how and why.
What Is wanted Is to get such an
appropriation for ihe ' Celllo . canal
as will begin the 'work at onos and
carry It on continuously and expedi
tiously, and to this end have It put
In : the continuing contract ; class.
With this done, the canal can be
completed In two years. Otherwise
It may take ten.' Every year of de
lay costs the people of this region
perhaps two million dollars. To save
this Is certainly, worth fighting for
earnestly and enthusiastically. But
beyond this Is to be considered the
advantage and prestige this great
open ' river would give Oregon all
over the country- .As an advertisement-
It would bo - Worth millions
more. ' ' , ' ' '
So The Journal hopes that there
are many Influential - men In - the
upper . country who 7 tool as this
prominent Walla Walla man does;
who understand and appreciate the
Importance of this project, and In
whose breasts the chord ot an open
river. vibrates strongly. '
HENEY A REPUBLICAN.
IKE A GOOD many other men
' of an Independent cast of char
acter who once were Democrats
, and may be so again, Mr. Heney
is a Republican because he believes
that President Roosevelt, classed as
a t Republican, has reformed and
revolutionised the Republican party,
:,or is doing ; so. IL With a Republican
president who did: cot pursue this
course we infer that Mr. Heney; also
like a good many others, would seek
to replace him by a Democrat who
would carry, out,' or better the
'Roosevelt policies. f r ' ' : .
- ; It Is noticeable that Mr. Heney
has become a Republican not because
ot any of the ld-skgans-and clap-
: trap claims of the party leaders, but
apparently solely because the presi
dent la prosecuting lawbreakers and
sondlng some-of them to Jail.-. Nat-
- wally this .appeals- with especial

la a Rcpul.Uo.att, Assuming
that this Is the "paramount Issue or

Other men who are and 'will be
hereafter Republicans or Democrats,
according to the trend of events and
the accomplishment of the party In
power, while admiring Bresldent
Rooaevelt greatly for much that he
has -done and attempted,-may , find
large and mysterious flaws In the
record and inay think some other
matter, the tariff, for Instance, Is of
paramount importance, and so will
not declare! themselves so positively,
SUU others who Would be glad to
support Roosevelt for another term
are not entirely w!lIlngtojBsume

in important particulars, v
Mr. 'Heney , is a Republican, but
not a Republican of the old, conven
tional, ; stand-pat, thick-and-tbln.
yellow-dog type.' Partisans of this
type are becoming beautifully less.
Men want something more now than
a ' party name and platform prom
ises and partisan phrases; they want
performance. And we rather think
that having had a taste of Roose
velt's performance, they will demand
more of the same sort, and along
broader and more extended lines.
NO GOOD REASONS GIVEN.

President Roosevelt for sending
the navy to the Pacific coast .next
spring. The World says that the
president, "from pure love of display,
In addition to the powerful naval
force already on the Pacific coast.
Intends to assemble there every first

cruller in the navy" the last phrase
in Italics, By next May there w4ll
be gathered on the Pacific coast 23
first class battleships and six armored
cruisers, whose names the World
gives, and then it says: ..
For tne" purposes of his naval panda

course the point of view counts for
a good deal. We of . the Pacific
coast would like the battleships to
come here for awhile; some people
of the Atlantic coast dislike to lose
their presence for so. long. But
whether or not "there Is any very
good reason for sending them around
here we have so far read no good
reason for not sending them. Wall
street and Fanulel ban will be quite
safe in their absence.
MONEY AND . STOCKS.
HE NEW YORK Financier ought
to be pretty good -authority on
the' country's finance. Pessl
nlsts Harrlman and Hill may
know more about railroads than this
financial "publication, but'we do not
believe they know more about the
money of the country. The railroad
pessimists and panic promoters
charge the comparative tightness In
the money msrket to anti-railroad
legislation, but the New York Finan
cier tells us that the same condi
tions that are found. In New York,
Chicago, St. Paul and elsewhere In
America prevail also In London,
Paris and Berlin. The government
securities of Great Britain, France
and Germany have suffered from I
decline In prices as well as Ameri
can stocks have suffered. .The de
cline la this country has been greater
only because the stocks were more
overvalued. Modey Is comparative
ly tight In spite of the large volume
of It In circulation, because "business
calls for a vastly larger increase
than there has been.- The industries
of -the ountrx-.offer so jnanjjjppon
tunlties of making large profits that
securities which In dull times were
sought after as the best are bow
thrown upon the market In larger
quantities for sale jn order to jtet
ready' cash to turn Into some oew
venture. , This., accounts for the
drop in prices of the government se
curities of all the great nations of
the world. It explains t,he fall ot
railroad stocks and of certain gen
eral utility stocks. It also explains
the difficulty ot floating bond Issues
which a tew years ago would have
been rapidly absorbed on a per
cent basis, but now are neglected on
a 6 per cent basis.
It Is no doubt true that money in
large amounts is not so easily or
cheaply to be had. as a tew years
ago. . A greater amount ot money Is
needed urgently In a multitude ot
new or Increasing industries, and to
obtain tt stocks are thrown upon the
market !a great quantities and at
depressed prices. Of course this Is
only one phase of the stock; and
money situation, but It Is a large
and Important one aniLdoes not fur
nish much of a basis for pessimism,
r-.-yy.-r- up. ....
.SytHERE IS' a .good deal of
7 I truth," remarks the'Med-
JL ford Tribune, "in the asser
tlon that Oregonians are
prone !io-walt -for others to do their
development for them," and It con
tinues;..':."..' J ' ': - f''y"
There Is ' money'' enough, business
enouch. resources enough In Oregon for
the people of this state to bull4 their
own roads. There U little'- sympathy
wasted where. a commonweslth of a
million people sit supinely by and
meekly wear the yoke and take the
dictation of a Wall street ' speculator,
who Is only after the cola. '
. .There la money enough.. tdle lu the
banks of Oregoo to finance almost any
legitimate railroad scheme, yet ' the
outsiders to take the Initiative .and do
something than to do It themselves.
They would rather profit by the exer
tions of others than take any risk them-
selves.. . .' .
. What applies to M state applies to
most of the cities. -
W . cannot jqult agree wtthl the
statement that there la . money
enough In Oregon to-flnance needed
railroads, In addition to other works
of development, yet we do believe
that the state cannot afford to wait
very much longer upon.. Mr. Harri
man's will or whim about building
railroads through neglected portions
of the staef Ona or more state
rauroaas may Decome a necessity,
and It may be none too early to be
gin considering , a , constitutional
amendment with that end In view.
In general, the Medford paper's
criticism Is well founded,- but we
think there has been a marked 1m-
provemehT,"ah SwakenJngT'durlhg the
last two or three years, and that the
spirit of- development and"progress
will grow - In temperature, activity
and effectiveness. . There are various
signs. In different localities, ot this,
but the movement needs to be ac
celerated and broadened. -.The peo
ple of Oregon, with the resources al
ready In their hands, can work won
ders within the next five years, even
If Harrlman refuses to lift a finger.
Now - a woman faddist advocates
a system of female dressing that
will not expose the - curves of a
woman's form on the ground that
they are "Immoral." She says "a
thing can't be beautiful that Is In
decent" . This Is affected prudery
carried to the point of Idiocy. None
but a vile mind sees anything "In
decent" In a woman's form decently
clad thai Is, neither unduly to ac
centuate or disguise its curves. It
Is beautiful, but can be "Indecent
only to a very depraved or a crazed
mind. '! k . .:.: ' ,;-
Already efforts are being made to
secure a pardon for Stensland, the
Chicago banker who ruined scores
of poor people and caused 'several
suicides." But scant courtesy on the
part of the authorities Is due to any
body engaged la this effort. Stens
land earned Imprisonment for life.
At least the government will not
be called upon to settle for the kill
lng and Injuring of a dosen Japan

the Southern Pacific railroad. '
Everybody qualified to express

The Bible a Divine Revelation.
. Eugene, Or., Sept. 10. To the Editor
of The- Journal Noticing a few days

men regarding "raaonjsnd revelation
and their part In the formation and
authorship of the ficrlptures (as taught
In the churches) It sweras to 'me the

tion 'o the evident historical plan as
we view the great length of time, about
1,00 years, taken up In the growth and
foundation of the said Scriptures. . It la
not to be considered- for a moment that
one rrail human being could nave re
ceived this entire bodv of truth and

plan, both the time and manner of Its
formation, there being known 40 differ
ent wrltars of the S books of the
Bible. Also the fact of their essential
agreement In thought and scope of Idea
and development and the fact that each
presents a different side of the same
truth are -wondrous evidence f wha
they claim to be, God's revelation to
man. In It reasonable that Uod would

The Gambler's Day Is Done.
From the North American. .
Gambllna- was the Daatlma of rich
and poor for centuries, condemned only
by the fanatlo and the puritan. . The
fireatest names In English history are

White's, the clubs where fortune and
eetatea changed , hands at cards and
dice each night. In this country no

Richard Canfleld la a man of educa

agreeable companion of men of equal
wealth and mental gifts. But his mil

poorest laborer the right to enter the

eauaL He is an outcast. The
gambler's day la done.
A oentury ago lotteries were approved
in every community. The last one has
been crushed by the national govern
ment, though It was Intrenched in the
constitution of a state. The policy ven

cret, is looked upon as a meaner crimi
nal than the petty thief.
No peode love the thoroughbred horse
more than the Americans. But racing
now Is permitted in only four states,
and In those . is taxed and restricted.
Because It has been Impossible to divest
the sport of Its gambling accompani
ment, cities like Chicago and St. Louis
have forced the abandonment of tracks
m which millions were Invested. Ten
nessee, one of the greatest breeding
states, has put the ban upon all betting,
and the persistent efforts of the past to
legalise pool-selling In other states, like
Pennsylvania and New Jersey, Have
proved more and more hopeless every

"J1 . ' Never Was Equaled.
: From th Harrlsburg Bulletin.
The . Portland Journal issued a sou
venir edition Sunday last, which Is be-
?ond doubt th best newspaper produc
ion ever issued in th northwest. It
Is entirely devoted to Oregon end its
Industries and possibilities and la on
of the beat boosts for Oregon that this
state has ever had. The issue shows
that Oregon and especially The Jour
nal Publishing companv, does not take
a baok seat for any of the older states
and as a work of art Its equal has never
been produced especially in the north
west and If anywhere the faot has never
been brought to our notloe.

Th Oregon Journal anniversary num
ber i on that would bo a credit toMany
publication In- the world. IIS maga
slne feature is magnificent, being filled
with views of Oregon's Grandest scen
ery, and tnat Is tha best and most beau
tiful on sarth. The descriptive matter
la well written, well chosen and con
tains the kind of information that will
make people of the east who ar for
tunate enough to get hold of It sit . up
and do some thinking. The Portland
chamber of commerce and other similar
institutions could not do better than
to send ICO.COu copies or more. If they
could, for the more th better, to the
east. That kind of a solid shot, when
It hits a man, brings him. and Is worth
a thousand of the paner wads usually
fired through the Immigration societies.

The Oregon Journal 6f Portland is

illustrated editions 'ever published by
any 'western newspaper. It consists of
11 sections and contains 1(0 page
and marks th fifth anniversary
of the advent of that progressive
dally In th news field of th north
west. If a more extensive and batter
prepared Illustrated - edition has aver
been publlahei by an Oregon paper, th
fact remain to be established. Th
news edition. Which reached a circula
tion of (0.000, was excellent, and the
printing of the cuts was a decided Im-
Srovement over former efforts of The
ournal In that special line of work.
