"Enemy of the Republic"
ONE of the first decrees to-be signed by Carlos G. Da
viln who hv a Houble-barrelefl revolution has made
himself leader of the socialist junta now in control in Chile,
is one which denounces as an enemy of the republic "any
person who advocates doctrines tending to violently over-,-heow
the constituted government or social institutions."
'Thus does revolution seek to entrench itself in power.
i Self -preservation-is the law of governments as it is" of
individuals. While it was patriotism of high order in the
minds of the revolutionists to overthrow the f ermer govern
ment, once they are in power any resistance to their auth
ority becomes high treason. Socialism and communism are
no different from capitalism in this respect. In fact they are
worse in muzzling freedom of speech and press.
ernment is not that changes in authority come too hard but
that they come too easily. Popular overturns reflecting the
whim txf the moment may make for unstable government, m-
"security in the business and political structure of the state.
Government thus tends to be the expression of the quondam
, power of some lucky minority.
The state cannot abandon social control, law and order,
no matter what its form of political or economic organiza-
, tion. Government is fundamental

State Fair to be Held .
DIRECTOR JEHLHAR promises the people of the state
a good state fair -and a savings in operations which
should enable the fair to show a balance on the rteht side
of the kdger. The horse show is to be abandoned. This "will
be disappointing to others as well as socialites who love to
see fine horse flesh. And the hoss races in the afternoon
will not be held, so now it will not make any difference
whether, it rains' or not. But Gehlhar promises novel and in
teresting entertainment which will be popular in character
and win, he believes, draw the crowds. .
i The state fair is the diversion for the masses. People
have to have entertainment even in hard times and they
will dlg up enough money to get inside the gate. The fair
is an ancient institution and the challenge of the times should
encourage its friends to get behind it and boost it along
more than they have for seyeral years.
, -: That the fair is appreciated outside this immediate
zone is indicated in the following editorial from the Baker
Democrat-Herald: , .
"u though few Baker county people, ever attend wo are glad
to not that the Oregon state fair will again bo held with a
program curtailed to avoid a deficit. It would have been un
fortunate if this great spectacle, which is educational as well as
entertaining, had fallen a victim of the. depression. Once aban
doned It would have been hard to reinstate and Its permanent
abandonment would have left an empty void In the life of the
state. , -f ,

Whiteaker was from March I,
1851, to September 10, 1868.
The constitution provided that
elections to the legislature and
state offices be held biennially
the first Monday In June. The
first one having been held in
1868. there could not be another
before June, 1860. By that time.
and before the date for convening
the legislature, the nation was
facing the issues that were plung
ing it into war.
When It met September 10,

the republicans could bring about
the selection of two -senators. But
that story was told in this column.
