ANOTHER HOWL FOR
A Democratic journalistic baiter of Governor Withyeomhe in
dulges in another howl about the flax industry at the State Peni
tentiary, and wants the State .Grange to investigate it.
That would be all right. .
They would find it a going concern; malting a profit, and
putting this foundation industry on its feet, as was intended.
This howler predicts great things for the flax industry, ( only
there can be shown a sure ample supply of the raw material.
Well and good. A true prophet.
The flax manufacturing industry is bound to be the biggest in
all Oregon. The natural conditions are here.
: And Governor Withycombe started the foundation industry that
is showing the possibilities; even as the baiter and howler professes
to wish. '
So, what is all the howling about? Just for the sheer love of
howling? - ,
. Mr. Spence, master of the State Grange, sent a committee to
The Statesman yesterday,, to find out by what authority was pub
lished in the news columns of this paper yesterday some alleged
statements of brother Grangers who were opposing him for re-elec.
tion; or at least such a committee came. The authority was brother
Grangers. Now, The Statesman manager has no personal acquain,
tance with Mr. Spence. Therefore, there could be no prejudice.
Neither has the writer any particular interest in the differences,
between Mr. Spence and some of his brother Grangers, excepting as
any citizen of this state should have. The office of master of the
State Grange is a public offiee, ex officio, and there is naturally and
rightfully some news interest in the internal politics of the State
Grange. - That was the view of the reporter covering that assign,
ment. That is all. One of the members of the committee that came
to The Statesman office said some. of the statements concerning Mr.
Spence not giving an account of his expenses, etc., etc., were un.
truthful. The Statesman reporter did not vouch for their truthful
nesa. He merely said that the statements were being made by those
who were opposing the re-election of Mr. Spence.
Coleridge, the poet, once wrote that there is "nimiety in all
Germans.'! What' is "nimiety?' It -is excess redundancy ; too
muchness. 'Coleridge exercised his poetic license m attributing this
quality to jail Germans. But it does apply to the military autocracy
of that country, and it has gone to their heads.

LOVE OF HOWLING
Indorsed by a convention of Zionists
at Philadelphia, It is Interesting tc
note that the single tax Is the mod
ern version of a phase oi isms old
Hebrew Jubilee, the Jewish custom
of a redlvlsion of their lands every
half century, to provide for the new
landless generations. With the de
velopment of modern urban life, the
land question becomes more acute.
Land values In dense centers of pop
ulation mount into fabulous sums;
the land values of New York city
alone are estimated at from five to
seven billions of dollars, irrespective
of improvements, somewhat about
one-fifteenth the total for the entire
nation. The contention of single tax
advocates Is that these site values
are the product 'of . population not
due to any service rendered by indi
viduals In their capacity as land ajaro
era in other words, that aite value
are community values and should be
taken by the community In lieu of
taxes upon industry, leaving to the
Individual the values created by the
individual. Take away the popula
tion of the rest of America, they say.
and New York, land lvalues would
shrink to little Or nothing. The Zion
lets are evidently not to be caught
some time with a New York situation
in Palestine. i

West Indies" 283.000. It ought all
to go to the allies as long as the
American public Is called upon to
forego its use in order to help the
war along. Exchange.
That is easy to say.
And it is a natural feeling.

TO HAV E MANY- OFFICERS OF
Before the end or the present year
the, -United States Army Register
will contain. In all probability, the
names or more officers or high rank
than ever before In the history or
the nation's military service. There
Is likely to be a list or generala, lieutenant-generals,
brigadiers that will tax the powers
of memory of any who attempt to
keep tab on the namea and ranks of
the high officers Who are leading
our armies against the enemy or di
recting military affairs on this aide.
Already we have two officers of
the full grade of a general, a tltla
(hat has not been borne by any offic
er of the United States army in thirty
years, until revived soon after the
commencement or the present war
and bestowed upon John: J. Pershing.
the commander or the. American
forces In France, and Tasker H.
Bliss, chief of the general ataff, and
now American representative In the
Versailles conference. To these two
has now been added a third, general
in the person of Peyton C.' March.
who succeeds General-Bliss as chltf
or the general stair.
There are now no lieutenant-gen-
srals in the active army or the United
States, but as soon as General Per
shing recommends the formation of
American army corps abroad it will
be necessary to promote certain ma
jor-generals to the rank of lieuten
ant-generals to take command or
these corps. There has been no Keu-tenant-general
on the active list sine?
LleiTtenant-General John C. Bates re
tired in 1906, though there are throe
officers of that grade now on the
retired list General Nelson A. Miles,
General S. B. M. Young and General
The revival of the grades of gen
eral and lieutenant-general recalls
the fact that, from the beginning of
ita history, the United States has
been chary of the bestowal of high
ma li tary , 'honors. The nation has
never before, in like circumstances,
conferred such honors as those now
held by General Pershing) General
Bliss and General March.
During the American . revolution
the Continental congress made no
attempt to grade the commanding
officers. It simply accepted as their
titles those oonferred by the differ
ent states. George Washington was
designated commander-in-chief of
the Continental armies. Not until
1798, when our differences with
France threatened to lead us into
war, was the title or lieutenant-gen
eral created and conferred upon him.
The following year a law was enact
ed which declared that "a command.
er of the army or the United States
shall be appointed and commissioned
by the style of 'General of the Arm
ies of the ' United States.' " This
abolished the office and title or lieu
tenant-general and gave Washington
the higher rank.
After Washington, there was a de
cided reaction rroni militarism. The
act of March 16, 1802. made pro
vision only for a single general or
fleer of the army, and that one a
brigadier-general. During the second
war with Great Britain numerous
general officers were necessarily ap
pointed, but none was made to rank
above a major-general.
An aet of congress In 1821 pro
vided for one major-general and two
brigadier-generals. There was little
change from this until the Mexican
war. when the president was author
lied to add one major-general, Zach
ary Taylor, to the single Incumbent
of that rank. Major-General Win
field Scott. In 1855 General Scott
was raade lieutenant-general by
brevet In recognition of his services
in the war with Mexico.
The Civil war naturally resulted
in the making of many general of
ricerf. Near the close or the war
the grade of lieutenant-general, nev
er before eongf erred upon any Amer
lean officer save -Washington, wis
voted to General Grant. Two years
later, when the nation had settled
down to peace. Grant' was gitfcn the
full title of general. This rank he4
held until he became president, when
the tile passed to General William T.
Sherman. The title passed to Cea
eral Sheridan on June 1, 188. and
on August 5 of the same year it went
out or existence. Lieutenant-generalships
continued longer, and niajor
