THE PRESENT LEGISLATURE
The numbers of the Oregon Legislature in session at the
Capitol are, "generally gpeaking, fair minded, intelligent,
earnest and able t , . , .
As fine a body as ever assembled under the bigome to
make laws and give directions for the conduct of the business
of the state government.
Tkey need no advice a3 to their duties
Though advice from any source will not be resented by
the earnest representatives of the people working in the state
house with an honest desire to serve their commonwealth and
their country in the best possible ways.
Here is one suggestion: .
Congress ought to be memorialized early, in the session
in favor of protective tariff legislation for the products of
For our wool, our fruits, especially our cherries, our flax
and hemp, our poultry products, our hides and skins, etc etc.
The Wavs and Means Committee of the House, which has
the making of the proposed new tariff law in hand, is now
holding daily hearings; this committee began that work last
Perhaps there should also be a memorial concerning the
f mpiwnw tariff Wislation though this "will likely be a
fruitless effort i due to the free trade President fortunately
on the last leg of his administration.
- The work of the enrolling and engrossing committees of
the Legislature will be dove-tailed in together at the present
session, through an arrangement made by Hon. Frank Davey
and others.: and several hundred dollars, if not some thou
sands, saved to the taxpayers. There is no doubt that econ
omies in other directions might be made in the machinery of
legislation,' brr-effeiency-expert.---In everydirectioaiiie
interests of the overburdened taxpayers ought to be looked
after, and no doubt will be, at the present session. The high
cost of living and the high cost of everything else must be
trimmed to the point just above where efficiency and quality
might be endangered. The state government must be earned
on, and all the useful branches of its various activities main-
1 tamed. . But economy ought to be the watchword.

KEEPING THE PEACE.
Twenty- two nationr have al

framed by Elihu Root and others
for the League of Nations. When
this is ratified by the parliaments

the world court becomes effec

toward iternational j.istice. The

We cpnfidently challenge themost inflamed imagination
to conceive of a more colossal folly tlian for the very three
nations'' who are the sole economic hope of civilization today
to pour billions of dollars into the sea at this most critical of
times ; and .all absolutely ta no purpose. These three nations
are, of course, Ihe United states, the British Empire and Ja

of thm is already impregnable against attack by any nation
or group of nations, outside of the Big Three. Yet there are
men who.soberly suggest that they shall all rush into a warship-building

will, for a measurable period at all events, leave them each

The United States court has
beld in an injunction proceeding
that the Iowa law fixing railway
fare at two cents a inlle Is un
constitutional. The railroads were
able to show that their revenues
would not cover expens-.es at that

railway companies cannot be
made to haul people for les thai
