OUT Y-T II R E E Republican
newspapers outside of Port
land joined In the attempt to
read Secretary of State Ol-
cott out of the Republican party.
Among the promises made men
whom agents of the Withycombe
administration sought to bring out
as ,a candidate, was that a large
number of newspapers would be
delivered to the support of the man
who, would, run against Olcott.

aggressive. Many of them printed
columns of matter assailing the
I Republicanism of Mr. Olcott. They
i hissed and sneered. They bludg
eoned and blustered. They accepted
the press agent stuff sent out of
Portland and printed it as their
thoughts and their conclusions.
'And the state employes sent
over the state and Into Portland
to Influence the voting, worked
like beavers. They distributed
cards, made personal appeals and
told everybody tbat Mr. Olcott Is
no Republican.
And the deputy game wardens
and, other attaches of tbe Withy
combe administration, beat the
bushes, rushed the voters and ped
died everywhere the claim that
Olcott Is not a Republican.
, And the big chief at Salem sent
out private and very confidential
letters appealing to his friends to
support Mr. Moores, in which ac
tion tbe governor of a great state,
as head of his political machine,
got out Into the trenches and did
service on the earthworks like
private soldier.
It was a great spring drive. With
the Oregon! an and Telegram using
asphyxiating gases, the 43 up-state
papers made the whole earth shake
with round on round from 42-centl-
meter howitzers.
-- The carnage until primary day
was f jarful. The slaughter was
almost Indescribable, until the elec
tion returns came in.
' The answer of the Republican
voters to the great drive was some
thing like 17,000 majority for Sec-
.retary Olcott. He carried every

In mo8t cities the authorities
have discouraged street peddlers.

ESIDENTS of South Portland
are interested in a project
for beautifying the entrance
to Terwllliger boulevard and
for filling Marquam and Terwllli
ger gulches and converting them
Into a playground and athletic cen
ter for the ch(ldren and adults of
the South Portland district. The
South Portland Improvement asso
ciation, of which A. RoBensteln is
president, and the Shattuck Parent-
Teacher association, of which Mrs.
J. F. Kelly is president, are lead
ing the campaign. . , At the end of
Fifth street the entrance to the
boulevard has on either side many
unsightly shacks and broken down
fences. The plan provides for tbe
removal of these shacks .and the
planting of the narrow space be
tween the street and the hill or
the gulch as the case may be, with
shrubs and flowers. - ,
The gulches are unsightly and a
menace to public health. Some
garbage Is dumped there and about
this the children play. That South
Portland is in need of a public
playground is conceded by all,' as
under present conditions the . chil
dren are . obliged to play in the
street. The one thing urged against
I it is that there are those who

should not be spent In large
amounts for public improvements.

learn a lesson or two from
common facts. The window cleaner
who takes Ms life In his band as he

enth or tenth story of a tall bulld-
ing can hardly be less brave than
the soldier who faces bullets. When,
a few days ago, William Kelch

ment far below, everybody felt that
here w&s a tragedy as solemn as

, "But such bravery is Ignoble be
cause tne man is only earning his

of feudalism which has always
despised honest work and exalted
violence. Democracy must refuse

HE world Is full of curealls for
war. In the epidemic of choi

Genesis and Evolution.
Washougal, Wash., May 22. To the
Editor of The Journal In a letter In
Friday's Journal a correspondent in
quires which account of creation in
Genesis is the true one, and if it is
in harmony with organic evolution. If
the writer will turn to the first and
second chapters of Genesis he will See
that the first chapter simply states
that lod did do so, and in the sec
ond it tells how he did it, and the two
are but one record. And as for har
mony between the record and evolu
tion, by careful study one will see
that Genesis does not teach evolution
but creation, and to determine, which
of the two Is the more scientific I
will simply- quota from a few noted
Frederick Wrightr D- D., in
writing on this subject says: "The

geological science, quotes approvingly
these words from Mr. Gladstone: "The
first chapter of Genesis was not writ
ten to teach science but not a single
fact of science can be found to dis
credit it.''
Professor L. T. Townsend, D. D., in
his book "Collapse of Evolution,'
writes: "It should be said at fnls
point that it the transmutation of spe

evolution can have no scientific stand

to an apology for the repetition of so

On Mistakes of Employers.
Portland. May 30. To the Editor of
The Journal I desire to make a brief
statement, hoping It may do some good,
and make employers more careful in
the treatment of their man.
On the part of some employers there
is an inclination to obtain a maximum
amount of work for a minimum of re
muneration. The employer who makes
this a part of his attitude toward his
employes very seldom reaps the reward
desired, because he gathers about him
men who are striving in a similar way
trying to get a maximum amount of
pay for a minimum amount of work.
"Some' bosses have the idea tbat in
order to get best results from their
men, they must be continually finding
fault. They have .the idea that the
man will become satisfied and attempt
to rest on the laurels already won, if
given a word of praise or encourage
ment. But such an idea Is contrary to
all human experiences. No man ever
accomplished anything great If he
knew he was striving for. the impossi
ble. Once convince a man that you can
not be satisfied, andv bis efforts are
immediately turned from that direc
tion toward a policy of deception.
Some employers try to take the con
ceit out of a good man, and show htm
In a hundred little ways that he is
working for him, and he is the boss.
If you want a man to strive for the
highest possibilities tell him he is do
ing well, and you believe he can still
do better. Even if he asks for a
raise encouragement will enable him
to earn much more than the increase.
And the boss Is the gainer, in any case.
When a man has done his best; and
knows that "he has done well, and then
receives complaints, he naturally
comes to the conclusion that bis em
ployer cannot be satisfied and that
further effort would be useless. The
best man living can be spoiled by such
As for myself, I came here last No
vember with several hundred dollars,
expecting to start into business for
myself, but found things In my line
at a standstill. Bd I looked for em
ployment and held on to what I had.
I have worked in the finest and best
equipped shops on the Pacific coast
and have the very highest references.
I landed a position at $1 a day, in a
very "dirty shop no toilets, no water
vn. Mv employer informed me at the
end of my first week's work that he
was short of money and only paid me
$10. Not only this, but he thought
i e knew the business, and had roe
f manT things which I knew w
wrong, but as he was the boss, I tried
to please him. and therefore cut my
own throat, as he came to the con
clusion that I did .not know my dusi
ness. Employers are frequently
taught In the old school, and when a
man 'is modern in his methods, they
u- laondemn mm si ones, any vmptoycr
h-ftiappened to be taught in neither
school. Nevertheless, it tivea - ma a
black eye. When you Can't speak well
of your employer, it is time to speak
for another Job. --
gome employers will not advertise,
but expect business to drift their way.
Nowadays advertising spells more
business, and success. If I only had
crsickers and cheese for supper and
one dollar in cash,. I would advertise
with my last dollar, and I would gam
ble on it that my next meal would be
more substantial. 1 LYONS. -
The Muddy Creek correspondent of
the Baker Herald writes: "The tax
payers of this district have voted fa
vorably on the question of a new high
school, which means that Muddy Creek
will have a new 1 6.000 edifice. It Is
expected that bonds will be sold to
raise the money."
