date. By the eeney, meeney, miney, mo method aB other
.pro-Joseph aspirants were eliminated and Meier pushed into
the race as the only prospect with a chance of salvaging the

Meier is not just satisfied with the brief, dazzling but
deceiving platform of Joseph. He not only adopts it in toto,
he adds several new planks which make it now a most for
midable mouthwash. Besides accepting the Joseph dictum
of cheap power "without cost to the taxpayers" and the glit
tering1 promise of more industries without telling whence
nor why they come, Meier dangles the bait of more tariff on gim to clear away, tiny scales or
lumber, cessation of unemployment by digging up jobs for
the workless, bringing more population to the state, and
promises the best schools and roads along with "economy in
public expenditures . To make sure that all possible flies
are on his rod : brown hackle, royal coachman, flying caddis,
etc., he adds the following:
"If there be any other matters on which you or other members
of the committee desire further information from me I shall be glad
at any time to frankly outline my position with respect to them."
That should open the way to add any new brilliants
which Lester Adams or Rufus Holman or Jay Bowerman
may not have thought of .

MacPherson on Cabinet Plan
TJECTOR MacPherson, member of the legislature from
LL Linn county, and advocate of the cabinet form of gov
ernment, has taken notice of the pot shots taken at his pet
scheme in recent months using the dismissal of Judge Saw
yer from the highway commission as the "horrible example."
Instead of an argument against the cabinet form of govern
ment which lodges additional power in the executive, Mac-

the whole I believe Mr. Van
Trump is serving the county well
in his capacity as fruit Inspector.
Dut there is one Phase of his work
believe he is, to ft very
sjf arrow into at a future date. But read what Prof. Mac
Pherson has to say:
"Two or three recent editorial comments on the cabinet form of
government constitutional amendment indicate that the writers be
lieve that the recent unsettled political conditions nave tended to
create distrust of the cabinet plan. It was stated that the amendment
weuld place too much power in the bands of a radical or erratic gov
era or. The dismissal of Judge Sawyer from the highway commission
by Governor Norblad and the assumed radicalism of the late Senator
Joseph were cited as reasons for the distrust.
"Fortunately onr experience under Governor Norblad gives us
material from which we can compare our present system with the
proposed cabinet form of government. - :
. "The most Important part of our reorganisation scheme was
achieved during the last session of the legislature, under the higher
educational consolidation act. There was one vacancy under that act
which Governor Norblad filled. Herman Oliver's term expired and
necessitated an appointment which is ope of the most important non
salaried positions within the gift of the governor. Why was TCe rmaa
Oliver re-appointed I He waa re-appointed because the terms of the
higher educational act made Irresponsible action impossible. When
vacancies occur between sessions under that act, every appointment
must be endorsed either by two-thirds of the senate or by two-thirds
of an interim committee of six senators. The knowledge ef having, to
face men like Senator Corbett ef Portland, Senator Eddy of Rose
burg. Senator Straycc of Baker, or Senator Wlllard Harks of Albany,
who are members of the interim committee, lor the approval of his
appointments, would hare a sobering effect on any governor.
"Compare the appointment of Herman Oliver with the dismiss
als and appointments of other officials under Governor Norblad and
we have the contrast between our present system and the proposed
cabinet form of ' government. The cabinet system mskes respon
sible, carefully considered action 'a necessity tor every governor. This
Is vouched for by the foremost political scientists from their knowl

He was, of course, drinking

When she protested, ho over
