;, MORE FEDERAL" POWER.
MIME3 AND CIRCUMSTANCES
I have changed a good deal In
this country since the federal
- constitution was adopted. On
; the whole, it hat proved to be
generally sufficient for the growing
; country's needt, and ,,when not to It
has been Interpreted to eult the time
and occasion, and so hat done very
well, i The question of federal' as
contradistinguished from state pow
era, or those "retained by the peo
ple," hat come' up on frequent, oci
caslons for .discussion, and has again,
' and is alwayt settled in the end In
accordance with the country's needs.
and the exigencies of the occasion,
as viewed by theeadert of the po
litical party In power. That is, the
federal government, under the con
ttltution, hat whatever powert the
. people's lawmakert, legislative, Ju
: dlclal and administrative, In power
at the time, choose to give It. So
It will be now. The dominant rul
ing or law making elements desire
., the federal government to exercise
: directly and through legislation.
' somewhat larger powert than It has
' done hitherto. : and this will be
, brought about, unless the people
make a great and "paramount" 1s-
"tue out of the matter and very
; plainly decide and declare that they
do not wish thli to happen. But
; this they are not going to dor
Judge Parker, Representative Mc
' Call, and tome other prominent men,
Republicans as well as Democrats,
express gravs forebodingson ac
count of this demand for enlarged
powers, and the Irend of high off!
claldoro in that direction. They
' think the constitution is being frac
tured, and that the country Is drift
lng Jntq such, a tystem. of centralized
power that the states will be thorn
of bearly all power and become more
provlncoa or. territories. ' AVe do
those expressions. This portraiture
of the situation, present and pros
pective, it not wholly imaginary,
yet these objectors ; probably view
tbe case too narrowly. , They do not
v sufficiently apprehend the tremen
dout Industrial and commercial
ica that have taken place. And
how lt the, federal government, to
do what the people generally art
calling on It to do,- for example wlthj
respect to Interstate commerce, un
less It can assume larger powers t
In the case of Interstate railroads,.
and all corporations doing an Inter
ttate business, the ttatea art power
less, yet we want these corporations
strictly regulated. . Only the federal
government can do It .
But whatever the merlta of the
argumentt of Judge Parker and
other antlt, they art Just now whis
pering down the wind." A good deal
dependt on who, what kind of a
man, la president when such a ques
tion comet up.- If greater federal
power had been - broached in the
middle or .latter part of Cleveland'i
last term, the-people would' have
thouted it down. But Roosevelt

it a type of man whom, to tar, the
people immensely like. They, will

constitutional amendment he would
propose would ' overwhelmingly
carry. But an amendment '.la not
necessary; the three departments of
government, cooperative, can Inter
pret tht constitution -V to tupport
whatever they want, to carry out
along thli line. . '. .
A VITALLY URGENT. NEED.
GAIN THE car shortage pre
vails in the Pacific northwest,
perhaps, to be even worst than
last year. : Again tht lost from
tb tsr rt u irttl -be- enormous. For
years the roada hereanout have been
short of locomotives and cart and
every year the situation hat become
worse, because the increase of pro
duction has been far greater than
the Increase in tht railroads' facili
ties for handling tht ttuff. Rail
road men knew about what waa
coming at to Increase of production
and demand for transportation facll-
Itles yet have neglected year after
year to provide them. They are
supposed to know their own busi
ness selfishly, but even from that
point of view this neglect Is manifest
ly foolish. Having the road, the
profit per ton. or carload increases
in a greater proportion than the
amount moved. But they had their
reasdnarat We knoir. "7
THe .excuse for the last year or
two has been that It was difficult to
get money and labor We alf know
that -noney Is - tighter and labor
higher than they - were tome years
ago, but it tbe transportation, busi
ness of tht country to come to a
standstill, at to volume, on that ac

making a great ileal of money, of
net profits, of dividends; why can
not soma of, these millions be used
for more locomotives and cartT
"Can't get money and men," they
say. Can thla be believed of such
mighty men at Harriman and Hill?
Mr. Harriman takes frequent occa
sion to boast of the great things he
hat donerof the hundreds of mil
lions he has spent on western roads;
and. saying nothing about tome of
hie methods, he hat a right to boast
A man of hit great talent, amount

to be covered with winter snows.
Tet Mr. Hill is spending millions,
of which we people of Oregon are
