Let Us Give Thanks
FiR our morning' grace let us thank "the constitution for
Ralph Hamilton, governor pro tern, who smokes a pipe
and promises to keep the peace.
Well do we need it, we Oregonians who have dozed com
fortably for three years under Governor Patterson, only to
be set on edge the past five months. This governorship bus
iness has gotten us all jumpy; our nerves have most gone
to pieces. Now comes Ralph Hamilton who smokes a pipe and
promises to keep the peace.
The late primary was a spirited affair and its result a
shock such as turns one's hair white over night, though the
Oregoniarj says such things never happen. Then the little
piece of unfinished business between the nominee and the
court gave the state twitches for a week. This was followed
with the tomahawk party of Norblad and the strategy
board. The combination proved most too much for us slow
moving webfooters. We were in need of a sedative; and there
xis no sedative better than a governor who smokes a pipe.
The picture of Ralph Hamilton smoking his pipe will do
more to soothe the frayed nerves of our citizens than any
thing else. Someltow you feel comfortable with a man who
smokes a pipe. He stops and pulli at his pipe; then he stops
and puffs out the smoke. The pause gives one assurance. Cig
arettes are different; they give one the fidgets. Did you
ever notice how nervous the ordinary cigarette smoker is?
A fag, a light, a few puffs; then he reaches for another. How
alow-moving is your pipe-smoker by comparison. Why, fiD
ihg his pipe is a veritable ceremony; and smoking it seems
the aeme of solid comfort.
We wonder if this is the reason why the pipe is chosen
for the ceremonies of peace. No one ever heard of passing the
cigarettes in the ritual of a council; nor a cigar; always it is
the pipe with its long stem and carved bowl.
So we may relax for a few weeks now. No disturbing
ukases will issue from the governor's office. No official heads
will fall into the basket. There will be no political huddles, no
tense air of expectancy. All will be quiet and serene. For
Oregon has as its temporary governor, Ralph, Hamilton, who
& mokes a pipe and promises to keep the peace.
Vacating a Street
THE paper mill is asking for the city" to. vacate a portion of
the end of Trade street where it runs into the mill just
west of Commercial street. If the owners of property and in
dustries affected will consent to the vacation of the par of
the street requested it seems to The Statesman the council
should grant the petition.
The opposition which has been voiced to the proposal is
that the city would be giving the company some valuable
land. Perhaps so, but that is nothing new. Whenever a street
or alley is vacated the land reverts to the abutting property
owners ; the same is true of country roads. So long as the in-
austnes most vi tally concerned witn tne use of this stub
street are agreeable to its vacation for the use of the paper
Ml 1 I ' it ?a a j mm mm
mm, we oeueve tne city can grant tne request, a. vacation CI
street was made a few months ago for the benefit of an in
dustry ; and such practice is not uncommon nor improper.
Salem ought to realize how important this paper ""H is
to the city. It runs night and day; where other mills have
run on part time it has operated with full crew, and is bow
willing to enlarge its operations. To get another industry like
it our people would gladly contribute thousands of dollars.
to hold it here we ought to be considerate, especially so when
such consideration involves no cost to the city. The paper
mill runs here under some handicaps as compared with ac
tual tidewater location. We ouffht tn h Willinc tn nf fpf
of these handicaps by extending support wherever the re
quest is reasonable.
Unless opposition comes from actual users of the por
tion of the street, we think the council is justified in va
cating the area requested, subject of course to agreement

THE country was braced for An old fashioned fourth of
July celebration when Bishop Cannon, Jr., took the
stand to answer the queries of the senate lobby committee
respecting his activities in the 1928 campaign. But the good
bishop declines to answer on the ground that the committee
exceeds its authority.
: The bishop is correct. The senate lobby committee has
no business to go far afield from the purpose for which it
"was created. These senatorial committees- think they can
function as a universal grand jury. The committee even
proposed to go into the bishop's private stock speculation
transactions. What is the relation between the bishop's
splaying the market and lobbying? The bishop answered all
the queries proposed to him on the subject of lottoying, but
shook his cratch at the committee and defied it when it
sought to go beyond its function, and bolstered his defiance

The country is apt to get the impression that the bishop
is trying to conceal something; and for this reason from bis
own standpoint he is in error to refuse to testify. The bishop
is active in the work . of his church; and ought to be en
tirely willing to publish, to the world, even to a senate inves
tigating committee, the nntrrn snd rtrtf Vf anrMKmm

S9und nearly as strange as the
campaign for the present postof
flee buUding sounded when it was
started, along in 1895, by the
Bits man. He got the horse laugh
from many' prominent people of
the city, who thought the idea
fas long in advance of its time.
The Bits man made some bitter
enemies in that fight; mostly men
who were Interested for business
reasons in keeping the postofflee
where it was, or near there.
And it will be news io many
now. that the authorities at Wash
ington are looking forward to the
time -when they will be called
upon to junk the postofflee build
ing of the present and construct
one in keeping with the Safem ot
the future. Mr. Latamers, the ar
chitect who had charge of the
erection of the latest additon,
the finishing touches UDOn were
completed only a few weeks ago,
said he expected to see the putting
up of a $50,000 to $1,000,000
postofflee building a live issue
within the next JO years. The first
aaaition, ouiit only a few years
ago, it will be remembered by
most residents, was an archltec
tsral monstrosity, and most Sa-
lemites were surprised to see that
the present one, which took its
place, before It had been Ions un

or Keeping with symmetry snd
good taste in the eyes of those
who understand such matters. Mr.
Ummerg said the reason was that
it. too, was to be temporary and
that it would ho impossible to
erect an addition for utility that
wouia o in keeping with the ar
chitecture of the original struc
ture; because, when it was put
up, there was no idea In the mind
of the architect who furnished the
plans, that there would ever ho
any call for additions.

two carriers. They were George H.
Hatch and Ben Taylor (the latter
a resident of Salem now, hut on
th retired list as to postofflee
work though in no ether impor

the office force was made up of
three persons, besides General W.

were Sam Church, assistant post
master, Herbert Wilson, general
clerk, and Clarence Crane. maUing
clerk. Mrs. Crane Is now a prom

One of the emnloyeea of tha
Salem postofflee has saved a clip
ping from The Statesman of May
4, lsoi, telling about the work
performed by tha rural f ru mail
delivery system ot the Salem poet-
onice tor tho first month ot Us

There were eight routes then. Ths
earners wer James A, Reming

Claude A. Johnson, James 8. Al
bert E. W. Cherrington, T. W.
Raymond and F. L. South. There
were eight routes then. The ninth
waa established later. Both Al
bert and Remington are still mem
bers of the force.
The report showed a total of
38,583 pieces of mail matter de
livered, and 5844 pieces of mail
matter collected. There was a re
port made of the same business
for 12 days lately, from March 31
to April 12, and the following
was the showing: 10 8.3 09 pieces
delivered and 11.338 collected.
That was for 12 days this year
against a month In 1901. with
one additional route route 9,
which shews the smallest business
of all. excepting route 2. Route 4
showed for the It days 14.6T
pieces deiirered, against 10,818
for route I. The total mileage for
all the routes has lacreased they
go farther out. on the average'
though they start longer distances
away from the postoffic building,
owing to the increase of city car
riers. The force of employees of the
Salem postofflee fs now 71 0f
whom 27 are city carriers and
nine rural carriers. There has
been s steady growth, and this
wUl be continued indefinitely
There Is now a checking up bo
ing made by the authorities at
Washington. They are asking the
present population ot Salem, an(1
of its suburbs. Of the Tftri All 01 I n
stitutions here, government, state,
etc. And a lot of other questions.
And they are asking the estimated
population of Salem 10 years
The Bits man, on account of his
position as supervisor of the cen
sus, has been asked to answer the
last question. His answer was that
Salem will have at least 60,000
