very sensible verdict. Mrs. Banks to acquitted. That seems

was but a tool of her husband's. Banks himself is convicted
of second degree muraer wnica emw m. t"
That penalty while severe, seems adequate. There were those
T o mnrui for rif life. "an era for an eye." While the
shooting may have been premeditated, the crime was in large
measure a "political" crime and not just personal homicide;
hence the extreme penalty was noi jusuuea.
The defense built up its case on the theory of persecution.
The facts were the reverse. Banks was, if anything, the per
tt . tViA ftftsailant. It did not matter if he took
men wholly innocent, like Judge Norton; he pffloned them
in his newspaper, abused them without mercy. Anyone who
crossed his path was made a victim of vituperation and con
tumely. Banks terrorized the county, and was the instigator
rather than the victim of persecution.
Why did he do it? Perhaps it was to satisfy his ego. He
.wanted to dominate the scene. He wanted to run affairs. He
liked to have people take orders from him. Also, he was in
financial distress; and the more he could throw up a smoke
screen and frighten the courts, the less likely was he to have
judgments entered against him for his debts. He was no
torious for his non-payment of obligations. He operated like
a speculator, and when the odds went against him was a poor
sport in kicking through. .
Banks fumed around about restoring law and order in
Jackson county. Had he been acquitted the result would have
been near-anarchy in that county. As it is there will be a
chance for wounds to heal and
be some "crane in Medford that has Deen running
things with a high hand; but it ought not to be necessary
to resort to assassination in order to break their hold. Level
headed citizens there ought to make an effort now to break
down the social cleavage which has been reported.
Life in Medford has been agony for months, although a
fine class of citizens reside there. Now the common effort
should be to forget and forgive and to reconstruct, with this
tragedy as a warning against intemperate f eudism.
- There's a Ketch In It
YITHILE all the states and cities are crowding, tincup in
T f hand, about Washington
money, the news comes out that there is some ketch in it .
And the "ketch" is this: there are fresh taxes in sight. We
are to bond ourselves into prosperity, but we will have to
increase taxes in order to pay the bonds. That is the custo
mary formula of governments getting groggy financially:
more and bigger issues of bonds, heavier and heavier imposts
and taxes, with the end repudiation or resolution.
, Somebody must pay We can't get money for roads and
wharves and swimming pools and institutional buildings with
out someone coming around and presenting a bill for services
rendered. Finance committees now are wrestling with the
kind of new.taxes to levy, for taxes there must be. New gaso
line taxes are proposed, though after June 9 the gas sold in
this state will carry a 6 cent tax, 5c state and lc federal. In
creased income taxes are suggested, but incomes have been
shrinking to the point where incomes yield small taxes. Fi
nally perish the thought! the democrats are toying with the
thought of a small sales tax. That would be bitter medicine
for the Portland Journal which is sweating blood in its oppo
sition to the state sales tax. Then Pres. Roosevelt urges re
peal of prohibition so that whisky taxes may serve as a sub
stitute for these other new taxes. ' ' V ' ' -'
- The country has reached the point where any new taxes
are very painful. Fortunes have4been shattered, incomes are
inadequate for : people to keep up their standard of living.
History shows no instance of a country ever escaping a de
pression by piling on fresh taxes. .But, like everything else,
we are on the way, going we do not know where.
" I . :::.
End of Isolation .
WHILE the-United States is not disposed to enter the
league of nations, and while it' will hot put its troops
at the call of Europe and underwrite the quarrels over there,
this country ought to go forward along lines of international
cooperation which Pres. Roosevelt has laid "down. The world
is a unit, after all, and the United States cannot detach itself
from the world. We will have to use our. influence in the
peaceful settlement of world problems. -
Progress has been made in a week.' Roosevelt's address of
a week ago, copied off Hitler and, the war. fevers subsided
quickly. Now the four European powers are agreeing te a
pact which assures peace for ten jrears. .The United States
professes a willingness to join in a consultative pact which
will tend to isolate a nation which violates the peace. v
The administration is following up with moves toward
economic accord, reduction of tariff barriers and quotas.
The problems of the world are not insoluble. With applied
intelligence and rational sympathies leaders of nations ought
t to come to agreements which will speed up peace and secur
ity and prosperity andjpublicsafety. ' - ;

There Is a rare book In the li

harks the mind of the reader back
to conditions la the Oregon coun
try nearly 100 years ego. .
The title Is "Lights and Sha
dows of Sailor Life," and It Is
made as principally from notes
of a diary - kept by the author,
Joseph C. Clark, while he was an
enlisted seaman with tbe United
States Exploring Expedition, 18SS
1842, of which Capt. Charles Wil
kes, IT. S. nary, had supreme com
mand. The compiling of the book
was completed in lsf7, ft was
published in 1848 at Boston, and,
of course, has been long out of
After sentimental words of In
troduction, ' and some original
lines of poetry in the same strain,
the book tells that the expedition
was ready for sea August 9, 1888,
going out of Hampden Roads,

with a Bible, and eyery man with

in getting supplies from the
ltives. . Quoting from the book:
"The king was fishing when we
reached there (one of the Islands)
and we were obliged to wait for
him before we could commence a
trade, as he allowed no one else
to trade with white men. When
he came we found him a surly old
man, apparently about SB years
of age. . . . His whole appearance
was morose and vicious, and he
wanted four times as much for
the pigs as we had been In the
habit of giving any where else,
and said he did not care whether
we took them or not. Provisions
we most get somewhere, and . . .
agreed to give him his price.
Knowing tnat tne natives were
fond of music. I sang some lively
airs, for the king, with which he
seemed much pleased, and it was
the only time I saw him smile.

The natives did attack the par
