1 1 John H. Lewis, then Stile Engineer, in the official " Oregon
Almanac," in 1915 wrote these words: .
; Approximately 20,000,000 horsepower, or one-third of all
the undeveloped wterjfeower in the United States, is located
in the Columbia river basin." i , . t;
, , Some one has recently said that half the water power of
'the. .United5 States; is in thethree. Pacific Coast states, Wash
ington, Oregon and California. .. 1 . L m .

the United States is in Oregon. ; V ; ! 1 -
Still another, that the timber", supplies of ; the region east

ftvery manufacturing concern, even" a steel plant, must have
i.omeTwood, for. crates and: boxes; that on the average 25 per

government, Col. Vm. B. Greeley,' said during a recent Visit
to this state that the lumbering industries ;will in ten years

Materials may be had; and the great bulk of the timber on this
continent ispri the western slope in Alaska,; British Columbia,
..Tashington, Oregon,: Calif ornia and the Pacific coast of Mexico.
Add to all this the fact that three-quarters of the popula
tion of the. world is just across the Pacific ocean ; joined to our

The recall is a principle, fit Is
not a policy, Recognixng it as a J
principle its misuse Is a perversion
'of government. - It must he as
sumed, that the people adapted, the
recall In good faith and for a def
inite purpose. That Its use by dis
appointed office holders and ma
licious politicians was no part of
the original purpose is apparent to
any student of government. 'The
present recall movement cannot
have back of it any purpose that
is patriotic or for the public wel
fare. ;x Governor Pierce has not
tteen in office long enough to
make values Ion his administra
tion. The. worst that can be said
Is that some of his friends have
been disappointed. This in all
fairness cannot be made a basis
for- recall, j : '-
" Two, things will be accomplished
if the recall goes through. Gover
nor Pierce, will be re-elected and
will he the strongest man' in Ore
gon. The recall will be disgraced
and , the people angered. Prom
the former will follow a rebuke of
the republican party at a time
when the country may need our
electoral vote to putlhe republi
can candidate across. Short-sightedness
on the part of certain re
publican ' politicians who lend
themselves to this effort for sor
did reasons cannot be repudiated
in time to save the state an elec
toral ticket; in Oregon next year.
There will follow out of the sec
ond a disappointment on the 'part
of those ' who' i feel . that there
should be some hold upon derelict
public officials. ; This will bring
the recalling to disrepute.
are those who will favor a recall
for the purpose of doing this very
thing. I
Never in the history of the state
has there been such a predica
ment It is time for patriotic men
to serve notice on the tricky poli
ticians who think they are under
cover that the light will be ruth
lessly turned on and the perfidy
exposed. It Is no trifling matter
to tool with the suffrages of the
people, to traffic In the franchise.

' Our little Boy Blue Is too busy
nowadays to play with the toys he
once found so Irrestible. Why?
Because in two weeks more he
will be back at, his little desk,
writing notes to . the little red
haired girl across the aisle ana
learning that there are two e's
and two a's in separate.
Just now his little curly head Is
filled with visions of the super
state he will : persuade : daddy to
purchase and : the marvelous me
chanical pencil with a whole box.
of leads that he may he able to
secure by Saving up his ice-cream
money. Besides, he has been push
ing his round little snub i nose
hard up against the glass of the
bookstores and he has seen pretty
green aritnmetics ana yeiiow-
brown readers that he hopes to be
ab!e,to carry to school under his
arm on the first day.
' And our Big Boy Blue Is neg
lecting his canoe and his swim
ming suit, for lately he has been
wondering if the new girl across
the street, who will be a Junior
this year too when the high
school opens, prefers brown suits
or blue ones. He has his eye on
a peach of a one that he saw In
a window the other day, and he
wants , his mother to look at It
the next time she goes by. '
i Then, too, he is worried oyer
whether he shall be a lawyer or
an automobile dealer when he
graduates, since he must choose
his course accordingly for why
should a rising automobile dealer
need a third year of Latin.? f
No wonder the little toy dog is
getting dusty and the little toy
soldier is showing signs of losing
his paint. The men folk are too
busy, to bother, with trifles like
those Just now! 1 ;
Reports in 21 cities show that
food prices have Increased on an
average of 8 per cent the past
year and that the average Increase
since 1913 has been 55 per cent.
Do you know' what this5 means?
It means that food manipulators
are getting in their work. Certain
ly the farmers have not been the
beneficiaries ot this price increase.
They have been the victims. ;
Some of these days the criminal
Laws will be applied to the price
manipulators. Then the men who
profit on the necessities of the peo
ple will be hailed into court sad
punished. ? V 1 ' ; 'f- ,i i '
There Is not the slightest excuse
for price Inflation now. The local
dealers are not the offenders, they
come in close contact with " the
public and would keep prices down
Ifl they could. They are the yic-
tltns of men higher up who fatten
by their ability to. connive and
combine with other public enemies
and thus raise prices. 1 By all the
trda BiceL -hould be
falling. That they are not is be
cause the bloodsuckers, the men
who neither toil nor spin, levy trib
cte as -odious but. as exacting as
tfiat levied by any other highway,
xaan. v' ' - 1 i ' ' f ;:
..When public sentiment focuses
on the real " of fenders something
wlO be. doing. Men cannot con
tintie to levy tribute in this way
and! get away with it, f ! j
Tbiere Is a good "deal of com
plalnt? always about the 'kind of
government the , politicians give
the conntry. As a matter of fact
the i . government is' Just what the
people lauthbrize. . ; Any time the
people irant a chaaige.they make
it. Thii thing called public sent
ment is awculiar. It does not work
by any rule but it functions all the
while, pt Just gets in the air.
Something is proposed, it either
dies then, and there or it takes
wings. 1 No man can, tell how
strong It will be' If the people
like it, flt sweejis the country.
These disturbances are what take
the Joy otut of ghe lives of poli
ticians. They must guess, they
cannot influence.,' " If they happen
to guess rifcht thiey win, if wrong,
they lose. The fplaln fact is that
such government as Is dictated ,by
the politicians is given In a frantic
effort to give thp people what they
wantT The lie -ot the politician is
at stake lwa:rs and he sells it as
dearly as poswlble.

The latest photograph ot the
George's smal. grandson
No term is more abused ' than
the subject of this brief editorial.:
In its purity It means that the
government ; is representative' of
the people, that it Is their agent.
All they have to do is to desire a
thing and if they desire It strong
enough it will come to pass. That
means If 1 they pift ; their desires
into expression through the ballot
box the representatives of govern
ment will do their bidding. The
perversion of this is that so many
special interests feel . that ' their
peculiar Isms will be represented..
While some of the people sleep
the 'men who know exactly 1 what
they-Vant are not . sleeping, they
are eooklng up a dish for the pub
lic that will not be palatable.
Under representative government;
these Ideas and Isms are engraft
ed into the body politic and it
does not always mean good
health. Sometimes It ) means a
loatbesome disease. Our repre-J
sentative government is an elastic
Instrument sometimes it is very,
seriously twisted. :
We do not know the politics of
the men appointed . to hunt out
the cause of the penlteniary fire
but the fact that they were design
nated by office rather than flams
would indicate that the governor,
did not know either. . What U
wanted is a full investigation.'
The administration, wants to know
the facts an dthere is no-- desire
to have anything concealed. 1 If
the buildings were set on fire a
knowledge: of the fact will hep
prevent future fires. If the "fira
Vaa caused by spontaneous com
bustion, then the institution can
be cleaned up so that such fire
will be impossible in the future.
It is a time when nobody wants
anything covered, when everybody
wants the facts it they can be al
located. '
The Dalles Chronicle is another
paperithat does not favor the re
call. When the fight gets on in
earnest the high grade ' papers
will nearly all be lined up against
the recall. This does not mean
that Governor. Pierce is -.popular
with the press, he is not. but it
does mean that the newspapers ot
Oregon are big -enough to Insist
upon a square deal. "
Two dollar bills are so unpopu
lar that the ' government is. pre
paring to ' discontinue issuing
them. In the early days $3 bills
were printed. ; ' ' ' 4 .
