The Portland Evening Telegram has undertaken in a
thorough and serious manner the very important task of
waking up Oregon to her possibilities as a great manufactur
ing state by the harnessing of her vast water powers
- , And that paper is showing that Oregon is lagging sadly
behind Washington in this respect
There are four outstanding reasons why Oregon will ul
timately become a great manufacturing state.
First-One-third of all the undeveloped water power in
the United States is in the Columbia River basin; and half
of it is in the three Pacific coast states,
r . Second One-fifth of the standing timber in the United
States is in Oregon; and the great bulk of the timber of this
continent is -on the Pacific coast side in Oregon, Washing
ton, Calif ornia, Alaska and the western side of Mexico.
Third The climate of Oregon is in favor of manufac
turing; especially that of western Oregon, where plants do
not have to shut down for weeks and weeks on account of
intense cold, as is the case in most of the great regions where
Jhe bulk of the manufacturing is now done. And this fa
vorable feature of a mild climate makes a great advantage
in living conditions for operatives.
Fourth Three-quarters of the world's population is
just across .the Pacific ocean, in reach of our manufacturers
with cheap ocean freights.
, -
White coal is the most important feature. Within easy
reach of Salem, most of it comparatively very cheaply devel
oped, 130,000 horsepower of white coal has been marked out.
The factories must come to the water powers; the water
powers cannot be taken to the factories, across a continent
; Wood is nearly as important ; 25 per cent of the expenses
ojf manufacturing concerns is for wood. Even the steel mills
must have wood, for crating- '
Favorable climatic conditions make for economy and for
efficiency as well as for comfort, and cost will figure more
and more in the fierce competition of the future.
. And the markets will be where the population is ; for the
world is becoming a cosmopolitan world, and the needs of all
peoples grow with progress and enlightenment.
If the Portland Evening Telegram can wake up Oregon
fully to her possibilities, it will have accomplished great good.
' If the state aid and loan fund amendment passes on
June 7th, there will be great activity in Salem and in Marion
county, in improvements in the city and on the farms. The
pitting of the credit of the state behind the 34 500 men of
Oregon who rallied to the colors will bring to this state a
great deal more money, in the long run, than it will cost; and
it will be an act of gratitude that this commonwealth cer
tainly owes to these men. It should be unanimous.

Neither Mr. Edison nor II, G.
Wells can be accused of merely
destructive criticism in attacking
the accepted methods and machin
ery of education, says an editorial
writer in the Springfield Republi
can. Both hav reforms to sug
gest. Mr. Edison pins his faith
to motion pictures as a substitute
for schoolbooks in the teaching of
many subjects; something has
been done and more has been
planned In this direction, but no
doubt kinetic photography has ed
ucational possibiliies, from the
kindergarten to the university,
which are still Imper.'ectly real
ized. Mr. Wells, being quite an
active-minded as Mr. Edison and
less pre-occupied with his own
work, naturally has a more com
prehensive plan to offer; his idea
is to apply to education the meth
ods of quantity production.
Whatever the cost, let the best
brains be secured to produce th
best books, methods, motion pic
ture exhibits, phonograph rec
ords, and so on. that it is possible
to make, and when these aids to
education have been perfected let
them be manufactured on as vast
a scale as possible with all the
economies which large scale pro
duction permits. Education at re
tail, he argues, costs too much:
the way out lies through standard
ized methods. It is out of the
question, for example, to give each
school and each class in it a first
rate teacher of French. But it is
quite possible to put into every
school room first rate phono
graphs giving a perfect model for
pronounciation. and to work out
a well tested standard course with
the necessary material so that
pupils who want to learn can ac
complish much even if the teach
er is not very expert.
The trouble, of course, is that
so few pupils do seriously want
o learn; the work of the good
teacher shows in two quite dis
tinct ways in giving bright and
willing pupils instruction ot a

the slow and indolent, who are
not always dull, to a lively inter

however, occasional pedagogical
miracles of this kind may be de
moralizing. The average pupil
easily learns to depend upon the
teacher not merely for instruction
but for inspiration, and there is
no 'commoner excuse for past de
linquency than ''Our teacher in
that was no good." Too much
ought not to be left to the per
sonal equation, and it can at any
rate be said for Mr. Wells's plan
that if it asks less of the teacher
it apparently also puts more re
sponsibility upon the pupil. It
offers a chance to learn and puts
it up to the class to make use
of the opportunity; in this respect
it might prove salutary.
That education might be ac
celerated at many points by the
use of improved apparatus, in
cluding motion pictures, seems
highly probable. Much time is
wasted In reading about
which might better be exhibited
pictorially; this would leave all
the more time for reading liter
ature, and no doubt even a taste
for literature would otten be fa
cilitated by the use of pictures-as

Is baffled by the lack of any ex
perience or observation of real'
things to give the printed words
a meaning. With plenty of pic
tures, which might include ani
mated mape showing how the face
of the world changes, the teach
ing of history and geography
would be greatly helped. In many
subjects, indeed, much tedious de
tail could be- quickly and agree
ably disposed of by this method
end others which can be devised,
and this is a clear gain even if
it proves impossible greatly to ac
celerate the teaching of tough
subjects like mathematics, or sub
jects which like English depend
upon the peneral mental growth
of the pupil and should be al
lowed plenty of time.
