In many periodicals recently there - ha$ been wide dis

'.rugle for what it deems justice'but what many .regard as

and, moreover, is not in the real interest of labor itself, which
is as dependent upon the other classes of society as they are
upon it. Society has need of employers and organizers of
industry: so has labor. Selfish,
tions of labor might finally eliminate the employer class, which
means the elimination of those with especial capacity for the
organization and conduct of

The circulation of petitions tor
the recall of Governor Pierce Indi
cates that the state wreckers have
thrown all caution' to the winds.
Of course there Is still the chance
that the good sense of the people
will assert, itself early, and not
wait until the election. rJoo many
people sign any petition 'that ia
presented. Again, there are oth
ers who really want to have a
showdown to , vindicate Governor
Pierce. The first mentioned are
not acting the part of good citi
zens In being so careless; the lat
ter ar,e carrying chips on their
shoulders and are performing lit
tle better than the cunning po
litical destroyers who are back of
the recalll " .
- Governor Pierce has not had
time to put any policy into oper
ation. He has - been beset from
the day he entered office by an
organized effort to discredit; him
and ' prevent him , making ' good.
He l--o4-fighter-andha.aoi
If Governor Pierce is to be re
called it ought to be after he has
put his policies. Into execution and
they, have failed. It 1s not fair to
use this sacred Instrument to pre
vent . him from making - a house-
cleaning.. The Oregon Statesman
is on the ground and It risks its
reputation gained In seventy, years
of endeavor on the statement that
not an institution has been pros
tituted or even damaged... We live
close to the Institutions I and we
know that the welfare of the. in
mates comes first There was this
same clamor about-' the peniten
tiary. It has entirely subsided.
The policy of, that has .proved
beneficial and helpful. There was
loud complaint ' .because of the
change in the boy's - training
school. ' ' There is - not one word
of complaint today. The ' super
intendent; has made good and .the
boys are -well cared f of . 1 '
Complaint is made because Gov
ernor Pierce has ..- not :. reduced
taxes. It Is absurd to think he
could do so. -Had the people given
him a legislature In harmony with
his program,: then he . could have
been held respnsible. The same
charge' .made against Governor
Pierce could with: equal- propriety
be made against every member ot
the legislature. ? Governor Pierce
has done the best he could.
The Oregon Statesman is a re
publican: 'newspaper but if the day
ever comes- when It will permit
partisanship to sway -.. Its public
service or inflect It in the dis
charge of its duty, it hopes it will
be a closed institution. If thl?
paper cannot speak for a fair deal
and an equal . opportunity all
along the line, then it has' no
longer any ' business being pub
lished. There is no politics -In the re
call." Those republicans who are
In - the movement are not repre-
reenting the party. They are party
wreckers pure and simple. ',
It tbe recall is ordered it wilt
be fought out to a finish.' Men
who Imagine themselves as in the
background will be hunted out
and held op te public scorn. There
will be' neither soft words nor
easy ones. : -
,- The proposed reapportionment
for the, next .republican national
convention ; reads well. "It has
been" a .standing scandal that the
south had such a large represen
tation when 'tt was known posi
tively it would not cast a single
electoral vote ' , for the republican
candidate. For years there has
been a demand for reapportlon-

stepped under .the plea that there
was a chance to build up the re
publican party in the south. That
argument ought to be wrapped in
moth balls and laid away. The
south will continue" to vote its
prejudices, relying upon the good
sense of the nation to enact legis
lation to take care of it.
Under the new apportionment
Oregon gets two more convention
votes. The great Influx or new
people makes this conservative.
However, it tbe backbone ot the
national committee does not fall,
as Jt , has done before, there will
be more confidence In the next
convention being representative
than has prevailed up to this time;
; The young minister at Vancou
ver, who became sensational at the
expense or bis , cloth was very
properly, rebuked by a former
saloon keeper of his city. This
man declares that ha has lived
Under both plans 'and made money
underthe former". He' no says
that he would not go tack to the
saloon if it made' him $100 a day.
The trouble with this young min
ister Is that he is at heart a sen
sationalist and Is wilting to dis
credit' his religion in order to get
cheap notoriety. -His contention
that tha law vwas enacted while
the soldiers were away is cheap,
very cheap. I Hundreds . of other
laws were enacted while, the sol
diers were away and' there is no
talk of recalling Jhem. The fact
Is . that ' the world, had to go on ,
and if It is right to recall one law
it is right to recall every, law en
acted. , While " the U warwas ia
progress the soldiers .'.we're doing
their best to win In the battle
field, and we all honor them.
Those who were not privileged to
go, carried on the work 'at home
the best. they could. Each has
gracefully and gratefully accept
edthe work of the-other. Alone
in the' matter of dealing in this
double distilled damfiation has
there been dissent. - It has not
come from the soldiers.' but from
men who want a chance to get
into the first pages of newspapers.
We do not have a particle of
sympathy with . the young chap
from Vancouver- who . seeks to J
overturn b 'splendid record his
church has made for .prohibition
and good citizenship' generally. -
' In navy circles fear Is expressed
lest ; the American navy;" be dis
credited because there is objec
tion to . pouring ' money into it.
Ve must have a navy, ot course,
but: we do not need ; to lead the
world. . The next war, if there is
one, which God forbid, will be an
air war, and the navy- will be
useless.' A large part of the" money
we are spending on the navy ' is
wasted. '
Our congratulations to Dr.
Steeves upon his : election as a
member , of ; the next general con
ference of the Methodist ; church,
and also our congratulations to
the romtn- conference in having
tbe advantage of such able mem
bership."' v '.'
The appointment or W. J. Jack

board is a good one. Mr.- Jack

being sentimental. . There is a
chance for great work ln that

kept from shaking only by putting

And. what iwould be my own reac

swept me, that I had no answer

as I read. His -pose of indolent
casual interest was too perfect,
too studied a thing to deceive me;
I knew that his nerves were as
tense over this communication;
It opened abruptly, with no date
line or salutation, even as had the
qther letter, the pleta for pardon
which she had sent to me when I
was in the south. I wondered
new the reason for this, whether
underneath her proffered repen

which would -not let her prefix

abasement and remorse which her
letter and demeanor had .shown

better call up and reserve a room
for her at that hotel! ;:
"By the way old dear, this thing
is going to run into money. Did
you notice how delicately she in
timated , . that she is strapped?
However, I can afford to throw
away a little cash on this deal-
it means so much to me. But if
little 'Oracle imagines she's going

I feel, sort of Queer about her

won't regret it."

Curiously enough his. words and
manner, instead of confirming my
own premonition of evil connect
ed With Grace. Draper's return to
our life, leajsehed. it materially. 1
realized that : my; greatest fear of
Grace Draper was a sub-conscious
fear connected with the influence
she formerly hae .wielded . over
Dicky. .1 had tried to convince
myself many times from overween
log evidence that I had nothing to
fear from her on this score, but
the feeling persisted, and my spirit
leaped at this new evidence that
It was based 'upon no foundation
' "I am sure we won't," I said
with more sincerity than I ever
had thought I conld bring to such
an utterance. "And when will you
call up?'". .' ."
"Oh! I suppose we'd bettetr run
down tonight, even if it is late,"
he answered. "That ice cream
parlor will be open. They have a
phone. - Do : yon suppose we can
fl it so mother won't' kick?"
:" We'll, explain after' we' xet
back," I said,4 lowering my voice.
"And she may never know we're
gone."; jv. - .,-
We stole out of the' house like
conspirators, got the car out and
sped down the road toward Sag
Harbor. Most of the places Of
business were closed, but the ice
cream ; parlor. K which boasts a
booth telephone, was .open. So
Dicky ordered frappes for himself
and me, and then went into the
booth, emerging a few minutes
later flushed and perspiring.
'Til tell the world It'a worth
your life to get a long-distance
when it's only 20 miles away," he
said. "There isn't half the trou
