Orations on the
T AST niffht The Oresronian
ILi iects dealiner with the national constitution. There were
eight speakers on the program,
. . a m
ence quite a goodly supply of
spiration for one evening.
We raise the question why the contest should be limited
to thetme theme. The constitution is something to be re
spected, to be studied, to be observed, and to be applied. It
is not something to be worshipped. The Protestants substi
tuted an inerranfr book for an inerrant people; but modern
thought in protestant communions has now deviated from the
old bibiolatry. We wonder if there is not a tendency to look
upon the constitution as the political bible of the country and
to fall into the same habits of adoration of it as formerly
were exclusively applied to the bible.
A cm in minv rtf tho constitution-worshiDDers are looking
principally at just some of its

litical nrl wnnnmic milieu, and is bv no means to be regard
ed as something handed down from Mt. Sinai.
It has received 19 amendments, and most every politi
cian can think up some alterations which he believes would
be beneficial. As time passes additional changes will be
written into the document. We do not plead for a flexible in
strument for our fundamental law; but we protest against
rigidity of opinion upon even such a practical instrument as
If The Oregonian seeks to sponsor oratory among high
school students, why limit the subject to a single theme? If
the purpose is primarily a study of che constitution, it would
seem that essays would be a more effective vehicle of ex
pression. The constitution will of course survive the ora
torical onslaught. We hope that it has vitality enough to
outlive the tendency to make of it a holy covenant in a holy
Running the Railroads
WE are quite sure it must be as easy to run the railroads
as it is the newspapers of the country. At least there
are as many volunteer performers who give generous advice
on how the railroads should be run. Just now we note that
the roads are about to "reduce the passenger fares between
Portland and Seattle in an effort to regain business lost to
the stages. We are quite sure however if some grange or
chamber of commerce had suggested such a move to the rail
executives they would very solemnly have protested that it
simply couldn't be done ; and produced reams of auditors' re
ports in proof of the impossibility. Then they might have
gone ahead and done it.
That was what happened in the case of the reduction in
time between Chicago and north Pacific terminals. The
executives meeting in Portland were so final and their evi
dence was so conclusive that the petitioning chambers of
commerce almost passed a resolution telling them they could
lengthen out their running time a day or two if that-would
permit them to stay in business. A few weeks later, presto,
the impossible became the possible. Every railroad an
nounced it had suddenly discovered the time could be reduced
without throwing the roads into bandruptcy.
We do not suppose the roads will find the passenger busi
ness profitable as time goes on. They may find it "less a
loss" to put into effect general rate reductions such as they
contemplate on the Portland-Seattle run. That is what hap
pened in the case of railroad stage lines. The stages do not
pay or pay very well; but they prevent the roads from piling
. up the heavy losses caused by operating unpatronized trains.
Being only an editor we shall not advise the roads what to
do. They do have a serious problem in rendering passenger
train service with coaches half-filled. Perhaps reducing the
rates will save the day; perhaps passenger trains will pass
out like the street cars except on the long hauls.

There will b sickness a plenty for doctors to care for
despite our best efforts to check disease. But the move for
health must continue; preventative medicine is more worthy
than the curative type.
Action Needed on New Building
fTTHE supreme court's objection to a new office building as
J. planned by the state board of control because the noise
of construction will interfere with the work of the justices
will not be taken seriously. Concentration is part and par
cel of a jurist's equipment, we would presume, but if such is
impossible when the rat-tat-tat of the steel riveter, is on, we
should suggest the judges pack up their books and try the
fishing on the North Santiam while mentally browsing in
the tangles of higher jurisprudence.
The complaint that the new building will darken the
offices now being used is more serious. Judges certainly
need as much light ahining on their reflections as any class
of citizens. Such modification as will permit such help must
be made by the state board of control. Otherwise the judges
will all take to golf and that splendid, record of catching up
with the docket will be. only a memory
But by all means, action is needed. The state has been

PORTLABnrS GASOLINE WAR
Gasoline is being retailed sin
Portland at from 17 cents to 21 hi
cent a. gallon. A majority of sta
tion sales are being made at 20
cents a gallon, which ia tho price
that tho dealers' association Is
trying - to maintain. The price to
the dealers Is lf cents. Only
at the stations operated by the oil
companies Is tho top price of 23-
eents asked. In their latest
meeting the - dealers apparently
gave- ao thought to bringing up
their own price to that figure.
Tho retail dealers charge that
tho oQ companies are seUlag di
rect to largo city consumers at
from 12 Vt cents to IX cents a
gallon. Tho oil compaaieo reply
that they are making ao ouch
contracts, Tho dealers charge that
the oil companies are selling to
farmers at 10 cents. This, too,
is denied. Tho dealers at their
meeting charged that tho com
parties are treating them unfairly.
Specifically, tho dealers object to
the exclusive ' one-company con
tracts that tho companies enforce
upon dealers. That jteems to bo
tho chief specifies tl on of alleged
unfairness made at tho dealers'
meeting, aside from tho one con
cerning cat-price sales to large
consumers, but quite appareatly

tho companies for tho whole de

trade, whoso ramifies ttoas are

Out of the muss in the trade in
the metropolis the consumer has
for weeks past been getting his
gasoline at various bargain prices
and is still doing bo, with no pros
pect for a ehange in sight. Cut
prices have extended in a few in
stances to outside towns, but the
storm center is Portland. Here in
Eugene there was a brief flare-
up of price cutting, but it soon
